Webpage making sprint stage requires a lot of time, and the final exam is approaching. Students are carefully prepared for exams, because all of them expect a excellent results. But four of us have to spare a lot of spare time to make web contest works, some teachers don't understand us. In the coordination and communication of school administrators and teachers, we finally got all the teachers support. We can only use the camera that the town and talent western story gave, pixel also meets our request, but the effect of vision is poor. There are many computers in our school,but all of them are old, and most of them can not work normally, not to mention to make web page with them. We just use the computers to input data. The radio and television networks are used in our school, the speed is not steady, one of the four plays can not access to the internet. The school office can access to the Internet, most of the contents of our website only can be finished with the spare time and weekends, we finished the work under the guidance of teachers in the computer of teacher office. Although Zhu De is a great man in our hometown, we only know his name for the kids after 2000 years, and it is more than 20 kilometers from the hometown of Zhu De, so we have a few chances to go to his hometown, and this is the first time for some of the members. In order to fully grasp the relevant data about the hometown of Zhu De, we invited little announcer in Zhu De hometown for making full explanation for our interview, and focus on interviewing the old man and guides who have worked in scenic spot for a long time. Finally, we found Mrs. chen, who was the administration in the hometown of Zhu De, she provided a large amount of text data and the various attractions of the pictures for us. Under the guidance of the teacher, we also searched some of the scenic spots information on the network after coming back. Our efforts were not in vain, we finally sorted out the complete data.
