Is it too old to become a web developer at 54?

I was planning to become an developer or flash developer. But job wise I wonder if I am not too old? How long will it take me to get there if I study every day 2 H? Also I only know html and some CSS. Thx.

Here is a secret...can you see me? Now? Know how old I am? Of course not, and just about all the work of a web developer can be done just as invisibly.
