RATES AND CHARGES
[Formerly Dragon Motors (1966-1980), Crossfire Engineering (1980 to 19084), Crossfire Engineering, Inc. (1984 TO 2016) and home again to Crossfire Engineering (2016 TO Present)]

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!
O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!

Two items of the effects of socialism before the First World War are documented in the records of the Catholic Church. I chose this one because it seems to be both reverent in the upcoming election and has been on todays TV news. It demonstrated that Socialist never change from violence and their opinion of individual rights. It is to people on the news last year consistently stirring up mobs to physically harass the families of target opposition and have them driven out of restaurants and other public places. One is Warner and the other is Waters. They seem to spend more of their time last year promoting and vindicating the attackers of a person opposing Sociaism down to infants. This is a quote taken from a Catholic Pope in 1884 and Waren aND Waters seem to fit right into it.

“ . . . the authority of rulers despised, sedition permitted and approved, and the popular passions urged on to lawlessness, with no restraint save that of punishment, a change and overthrow of all things will necessarily follow. Yea, this change and overthrow is deliberately planned and put forward by many associations of communists and socialists.” — (Encyclical Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884, n. 27).

In-House Website Training Rates

PREREQUISITES:
  1. You choose the class size: Class size can be from 1 to 3 individuals. Three is the maximum.
  2. Normal computer knowledge is required as far as using a word processor (for familiarity with keyboards), saving and retrieving files and your web work. I like word processors since I am dyslexic and their spell checkers and grammar checkers are great.
  3. A computer with
    1. Windows 10 Or Ubuntu Linux 18.04
    2. The computer must have the Apache file server Apache 2.4. It is free
    3. The server must be working. Apache 2.4 is the same server used on the internet and most of the web pages are served from an Apache server available at Apache Lounge . It is the same file server used at most it not all website hosting companies. They can supply the windows server but that costs moreper year and has different parameters than the Apache one a Unix coded file server.
    4. You will need a real text editor. The one I and all the programmers I know recommend and use is UltraEdit. What comes free in Windows is worthless more than that it is anoying for code writing.
    5. If you wish to do pages in Perl a working knowledge of HTML and CSS is a MUST before you start with perl generated web sites that are totally interactive. Perl is free for non copmmercial use at Active State.
    6. If you plan to go on the internet with web pages you will need to get a FTP Client to send your completed web pages up to a server like InMotion or GoDaddy which cost anywhere from $3.00 a month to big bucks a month what ever you need is whaever server you are using. I use Filezilla available free at is available free at Apache Lounge If you are planning on Perl Classes you will in addition to the server need to have Perl available on your computer and it is free for individuals and students at FileZilla. I can help you with loading these items but it must be done before a Block has starting as sometimes it is a real pain and it might take up a class. Apple computers are OK but I have never in 50 years of programming even touched one Anyone in a Training Class is expected to have their own computer lap top or desk-top. Desk-top people must supply their wo table and chair each time they come to class and remove it when class is over each class. classes are sold in blocks. There are SEVEN (7) classes per Block. Payments must be made in advance of class 1 of the Block you will be starting in. Refunds will be made if request is accompanied by a doctors certificate of the students inability to attend class. Simple not attending class is not a reason to expect a refund.
Payment: This table is engineering time and as such I do not accept any money from the people I do engineering work for or the people I can help with my classesBUT! (Ain’t there always a but after saying I do not take any money for my service.) The but is that you will pick a charity from my list and donate the amount om my invoice to the charity with no mention of Crossfire Engineering or me. The donation can be in your name or your dead uncle Pete, I do not care. All I want is an oficial receipt from the charity you choose showing the donation was in the amount of the invoice. Timing is critical as if I do not get the receipt before your class starts ou will not be allowed to take that Block and have to wait for the next available after you get the receipt.

Costs shown are for one student and one class. Max class size will be set at THREE (3) Payment due before start of lesson 1 of any block. One block is 7 1 to 1.5 hour classes. The goal of a block of 7 is to have a student able to understand the internet languages enough to do the rest themselves without the need for any web page tools or helpers. The course starts with Basics of programming and Flow Charts which is the basic road map of what you want the program to do and show where to start and where the end is. plus how to get instant help on the internet when something new is needed. My generation of system engineers learned to program in the language of the machine in binary then octal code. It is so simple compared to the complex programs to make things simple that are around today. My work in Guidance and Control was with a team that programmed the computer that took the astranaughtrs from the launch/return vehicle, landed them on the moon and got them back to the ride home in orbit around the moon. Exciting times for a boy just out on his own with a BEE degree and no experience at all except guns and hot rods. Well those last two got me more patents and opportunities to work wehere ever I wanted.

Note №: 1 Must hava working knowledge of HTML and CSS Windows 10, UltraEdit, Apache2.4 Server and ActivePerl installed and working. The only one that will cost you is UltraEdit. It is the one used by all my low level programmer associates. which has a student cost of $80 for a lifetime of use. The Apache server and ActivePerl are free to individuals on the the internet and I can help with the installation but not during class time.
