Don't Get Me Wrong: Some of My Best Friends Read Slashdot

Two of my closest pals - who happen to be a bit obsessed with certain technical matters - both told me that Slashdot is actually much more readable than most similar forums because the customizable noise filter encourages the better posts to filter to the top. (I think I read it before the filtering had happened.)

Anyway, obviously it's people like those prolific Slashdot posters that make all this stuff tick. When I say "all this stuff," I mean the hardware and software and graphics that make what you're doing today possible. Time to give some random credit to two developer types who just helped my day go a lot better today.

A programmer named Andy McFadden, on his own time, has given the world this incredible Usenet FAQ about rewritable CD's. Truly helpful.

And I can't help but mention this handy new HTML editor I came across. I've been a user of Allaire Homesite for some time, but I don't really need all of its features, since I am truly a "lite" coder generally operating within the confines of a CMS of some sort. The creator of Homesite, Nick Bradbury now has his own independent product called TopStyle. The trial version offers 25 uses. And they even have a "lite" version that is always free. I've been through numerous lite HTML editors on this quest, and haven't liked any of them very much. I'm glad I found this one. Those of us in the intermediate-web-page-creation camp who need a great web page creation tool, who don't want something that holds their hand too much or has way too many features, shouldn't have to use Notepad!!

It should be mentioned that Bradbury is advertising TopStyle using Google AdWords Select - and I probably would have been less likely to find him if he hadn't been. Who says people don't click on these ads?
