Ask Slashdot: Best Open Source Answer to Dreamweaver?

Octopus Re:notepad++ dude. (300 comments)

It may be easier for you to build a house out of housey-looking parts, but that doesn't mean anyone should have to live in it. Ask the Haitians.

Same with site building. You choose to be able to drag-and-drop your designs onto a canvas, rather than build standards-compliant markup that is easy to maintain. You're skimping and cutting corners on technology, in a technology industry. If you did the same thing in physical construction, and someone died, you'd be toast.

Sure, I'm being silly and hyperbolic. But when you ask how to find a free tool to create a lesser quality product because you can't be arsed to code, and someone points it out, don't get your dander up.

Take it like a man, or stop banging out web sites with a ukelele.

Octopus Re:Can Oscar's be given posthumously? (967 comments)

The Killing Joke remains one of the best Joker stories, period. It added the emotional edge to the character (and his relationship with Batman) that was always missing.
