Dreamweaver by adobe is amazing and if you know a little about how general code works you can manipulate their code pretty well.
When i was learning css/html I went through amazon.com and found the books I thought would be best and then googled the names + rapidshare and found places I could download them for free. Some books you just can't find but I ended up with about 10 full books published in the last 2 years that were all excellent.
Awardspace has some pretty excellent features for free hosted accounts. I have my own domain and use them to host it for free.
webreference.com is an amazing site for a lot of different coding resources. It doesn't seem to have been updated in a while, but their tutorials will walk you straight through making general websites (2 column, 3 column, etc, etc). With the walk throughs they do a great job of explaining what the code they are having you enter does and if coding isn't your thing you will end with a good idea of how to edit it to make it look like you want it to.
I generally play both slots at the same time and lose some money. I've had days that I come out 100k+ ahead but I usually lose money. With 500 spins (playing both) its still usually within 20-30k of breaking even.
Also scorchy slots is one of the most overlooked slot games. There is an autoplayer for greasmonkey you can find on userscripts but I don't think I'm allowed to post the link here. I run it every day. You wont get map pieces every day, but some days you end up with 4 valuable ones. After 2 months of running it every day on one account I had over 80 map pieces. Not to mention every spin is a chance at a random event, but pft, they never give me anything worth getting.
