Well, since it isn't my usual kind of art, I don't expect this to get a lot of attention. But I thoughtI might share some of the interesting things I learned in university.

To a lot of people, a computer is basically a magical device. They can't even begin to imagine how it could possibly run video games, movies, chatrooms and web pages.

This animation will take you right to the very core of the computer. The place were all the magic happens. And it will even give you a simplified explanation of how the computer does these things

Fun fact: I watched this roughly 2 years ago while I was still in high school and couldn't understand any of it.
NOW, I'm in college and am currently taking some computer science courses. This is exactly what I have been learning this semester. Granted I've been using MIPS and not DLX32, they seem very similar (registers are $s0 or $s, not r1, among other things)

You understand all the machine language and processor stages? I don't believe that.

It's simple for me cause I have been learning this stuff since I was like 13. I started learning about the computer basics and so on. I always try to study the unusual things about the computers. For me binary numbers is easy since I learned that last year. But there's only 1 thing IDK how to fix. My PC got the win32.exe, virus. My AV removed it but every-time I start the PC, a message appears that this file was not found and it couldn't be started so I want to know how to stop this message.

I'm sure you understood many of the things that appear in this animation, but there are things I don't think you could understand without university level classes.

I do not believe that, at 15 years old, you could understand the internal workings of a standard processor. Also, binary computer instructions are not the same as binary numbers. I have the feeling you don't understand those yet either.

You'll have to consult a computer technician about viruses and Windows. I only study computers on a theoretical level.

The binary numbers and binary computer instructions are one of the things I'm a newbie, for now. Yet Most of the things I know are from watching or trying myself.

Changing subject, could you give me some tips on how to create website or at least, if there are software's that do that.

Do you know what an ALU is? Or a register bank? Or a multiplexer? These are fundamental parts of a processor, which were all shown in this slideshow. I'm not denying that you know a lot about computers, I just think you're overestimating your knowledge on the subject.

About web design: HTML for page design, CSS for page styles, Javascript for client side interactivity, PHP for server side data management. All four of these languages are standard and free, and together they can make any possible website you could ask for.

You need nothing more than an ordinary text editor to write them (in fact I don't recommend using any program that automatically makes web pages for you). And all of them are explained in detail on the website W3Schools.com. Get ready for several months of hard learning, though.

BTW from where are you? Cause I think you are from NY, just for guessing (if you don't mind).
