Open-source web page WYSIWYG editor

If you build web sites then you probably have a web page editor. My personal favorite web site editors are Macromedia Homesite, Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition (free, get it here), and Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.

If you don't know how to code in HTML then you probably use a WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet program such as Adobe Dreamweaver. If you don't want to pay the high price for Dreamweaver there is an open-source alternative called KompoZer. The KompoZer program is an update with a lot of bug fixes of the NVU program, which I used and liked before. You can view some screenshots of the KompoZer program on About.com.

25 more days to go

Yes, there is only 25 more days to go until the big day! This past weekend was the bridal shower for my fiancee Amanda. On Friday I drove to Buffalo, NY from Boston, MA with my mom. That was a really long drive but fun in a way and a good driving experience. At the bridal shower we received many nice gifts that will definitely come in handy after we get married. I want to thank everyone again for giving the gifts that they did, Amanda and I appreciate it. Next up, time to find a place to live. We're both looking, but since Amanda is in Buffalo currently she is looking around, while I'm looking online for any places in Buffalo. 25 more days, I can't wait!

Another Second Life? Well kind of

I was looking around the other day and found what seems to be another 3D-world online game, called Kaneva. Looking at their site it looks to be another Second Life virtual world type of game and it seems to be more about community. I haven't tried it so I don't know how the avatars and 3D worlds look or if they're anything close to Second Life. But it will be interesting to see if this gets anywhere near the popularity of Second Life. If you haven't yet tried Second Life, try it now.
