KompoZer - A FREE WYSIWYG Web Editor. When I started writing up these pages I was looking for the What-You-See type. These pages are my first foray into the wonderful world of HTML and CSS and I wanted something that does some of the, hmm..., heavy lifting for me. I knew of Dreamweaver and so on that come loaded with all sorts of bells and whistles but these are expensive. And too complicated for I am trying convey my project experiences here, not to replicate CNN and alike. I wanted something simple and easy to use. And what warms my frugal sole, FREE. That's right, no cost. KompoZer seems to fit the bill nicely and has therefore been extensively used here. You can grab it from Sourceforge here; or alternatively you can get a copy from my server here. Extract it to a folder of your choice, scan for viruses (NEVER forget that step, regardless of the source) and run the "kompozer.exe". That's all there is to it! If you are like me and need to brush up on how to use it, a pretty good KompoZer tutorial is found here. Good luck!

Abacom Electronics Software - A collection of useful utilities from a company in Germany called Abacom Ingenieurgesellschaft. They have a utility called FrontDesigner 3.0. It's basically a rudimentary CAD with a very simple interface. Before I did all my front panel drawings in CorelDraw but after using their FrontDesigner for a while I don't think I have ever seen another program that's equally intuative to use. Don't get me wrong here, I have absolutely no association with them. It's not freeware so I can't put it on my pages. But check them out!
