Some of you may have noticed my latest toy in the sidebar, this Alexa Widget: Now, a rank of 167k is nothing to be proud of and most sites would not want to publish such a poor score, however it is improving (it was 280k last week) and I like playing with Alexa. The reason [...]

NVU is a free (open source) alternative to DreamWeaver which allows WYSIWYG (graphical) editing of web pages. Whilst not as featureful as DreamWeaver, it will save you a lot of money!

Why would you want to run a blog on your PC? To experiment on it, test plug ins, and make modifications without bringing down your website! A lot of people don’t realise that you can run Web-Applications on a PC as opposed to the Internet, from where you can modify and test your application before [...]
