Some interesting links to check out:
Last night I found out about a new editor that looks promising.
I was just informed about a great Web design color tool called pic2color. It generates a color palette based on the tones in the image. Here is a screenshot, generating a color palette from a cell phone photo that I used in a previous post:
For other similar tools, check out my list of online color tools.
I came across a very long list of Web APIs today. Definitely worth checking out for ideas.
I've moved the feed subscriptions over to Feedburner. Your feed readers should automatically be redirected to the new feeds.
If you would like to update your feed readers (not essential), these are the new addresses for the two most popular feeds on this site:
If you notice any problems with the redirection, please let me know.
Instructions for redirecting Drupal feeds to Feedburner can be found here.
Gallery is the classic free PHP photo album program for web sites. If you don't have a database on your server you can use Gallery 1. Gallery version 2 requires a database. The Gallery web site has a full list of requirements. Gallery can also be integrated into several content management systems, including Drupal.
Scott Hanselman's blog has a great list of power tools. It looks like most of them are for Windows only, but if you are a Windows user it is a very useful list.
[Note: to install the following programs on Ubuntu, make sure that you have the Universe repository enabled. You can either use the terminal, or Synaptic. For more information on how to install software on Ubuntu, see this article. Generally you can just type the following in the terminal: sudo apt-get install program.]
I found an interesting list of web design links at devlisting.com.
Emacs can be frustrating to learn, but after forcing myself to use it for a while it became much faster to use than other text editors. It doesn't work like other text editors like Windows Notepad, or GNOME's gedit. You get a lot of power to move around and manipulate text with keyboard commands. You can use Emacs Lisp to add new features to the editor. The Emacs manual is something like 600 pages. I haven't read all 600 pages yet, but there is some good information in there.
