This is my grab-bag of Internet resources. Check it out often, as the content will be updated regularly. I have a preference for free/Open Source software and command line tools, but I have also listed the big commercial packages, where appropriate.
I currently use a Toshiba Satellite A10 running Windows XP, so some of these resources have a Windows bias.
- TextPad - I know, I know, choosing a text editor is like choosing a religion. Well, this is mine. Workgroups, regex global search and replace, customizable interface, small, fast.
- Webgenz - Affordable content management for the Web. Do you want to reuse your code? Webgenz is for you. It's small, fast, customizable, can create any plain text files, and can be run from the command line.
- FileZilla - The best free FTP client around.
- PuTTY - A great free Telnet/SSH application that allows you to save settings. And it's small enough to fit on a floppy.
- HTML Help Workshop - The free HTML Help compiler from Microsoft. A great way of producing online help or bundling your web site for easy download. Old, but still useful.
- SnagIt - My screen capture tool of choice. Easy, quick, and can be automated. Their Camtasia Recorder tool is nice as well (although it does use a proprietary compression codec).
- SAXON - People argue over new XSLT processors, but this keeps coming back as the best. The author, Michael Kay, wrote the book on XSLT.
- HotScripts - The best script archive on the 'Net, no exceptions.
- DevShed - Once you've got your head around some basic coding, this site has excellent tutorials on all web technologies.
