Action is character.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald
In other words, it’s what you do, not what you say, that matters. It’s the actions you take that others pay attention to, not your words.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – Leonardo da Vinci
It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.
I realize its time to switch back. Now talk amongst yourselves.
Web Developers, we know you like pretty code, admit it!I have been told yet again by another hardcore web developer recently, that they prefer to bang out code using Adobe’s Dreamweaver WYSIWYG editor. This is not the first instance. I have heard it mentioned on many occasions that web developers do like pretty code, and one of the tools they prefer is Dreamweaver, with its beautifully colored syntax. Back in the day, Developers used to hate Dreamweaver or any other web tool because it spit out unnecessary code and spacing, wreaking havoc on any scripts or back end functionality they had to add to websites. Well, not any more. Gone are the days of BBEdit and plain text editors, designers tools are prevailing.Ok, so I might be exaggerating a little. The developers I spoke with only tend to use Dreamweaver 25-50% of the time. Nonetheless, they use it, and love its pretty syntax. If you haven’t already checked out CS3 software, you can download Dreamweaver with a free trial.
If you like to monitor how listed companies you follow closely are doing, try setting up a Google Finance Portfolio. I have been playing with mine for a little while and its an extremely good source for not only monitoring stock prices, but a great source for up to the minute news and press releases.Your Finance Portfolio is conveniently listed out with stock symbols, last price, change, opening rate, high and low rates in an uncluttered easy to read environment with the option to export data as a csv. Forget about punching in symbols to check, and searching out PR newswires. One of the top features is the Events list. This handy little sidebar displays all the upcoming conference calls, earnings releases and corporate events, and allows you to directly add the events to your calendar so you will never miss the news on your favorite company again.Even if you aren’t a big investor, and just want to watch the market conditions, Google Finance Portfolio’s is a great option. Yahoo! Finance also has the same type of environment. But if you are already a Google Gmail user, Google’s option could be a little easier to integrate into your day to day movements.
