Looks like a great program.

I wish I could understand what it does. Is it for blogers?

Also, Studio 717 mentiones that it "uses JAVA" I have seen that mentioned before. Why is that important?

Microsoft to Acquire Yahoo?

A bit off the usual topic but interesting.

What on earth will Microsoft actually be buying for all of that money? I don't get it.

Does this make sense to you?

I have an appointment with a Mac Guru at the Apple Store next Thursday to spend 60 minutes, one on one, discussing programmin as he does that for a living.

It should be interesting.

Hair On Fire

Hi Bob: Love the "hair on fire" metaphor. I get the feeling that, not just from you but from others I have spoken with, programming is NOT all that easy. I am hoping to get a glimpse into what it is all about. By the way, did you ever hear of "Ruby on Rails"? Best, Howard

Learning to Program

Hi all Now that I have moved to a Mac from Windows, I want to learn a bit about programming. Is Cocoa good as a first and probably only programming language or does it make sense to learn HTML? (Unless HTML is for windows only for which if that is the case, I have no interest.) Any help would be app...

Anyone Into Mind Mapping?

Hi all:

Does anyone out there use mindmapping software?

I am on the 21 day trial of Mindjet and it seems to help me to see the big picture and to think things through.

http://www.mindjet.com

Just wondering. Seems to be facinating.

Journler and Devon

I have read with great interest the conversations on software such as Devon Think and Journler. I am leaning toward the Journler, but, Devon has another program called Agent and on some level, this changes everything. http://www.devon-technologies.com/products/devonagent/index.html This program seem...

Full Screen Qustion

Hi all:

When I go into full screen mode, my first paragraph indents. I am not the indenting type.

Anyone know how to change this?

Thanks
