UltraEdit is one of the best text editors out there and I have recently spent some time using version 11. It has a lot of features that will aid the development process, such as Unicode/UTF-16 support and code folding, in addition to the excellent functions already delivered in previous versions.
The first major upgrade since 1.0 a year back is now a reality. Features include improvements to the Gecko engine, CSS columns support, tab reorder, performance enhancements and much more.
I’ve been using Typo3 for a while and since it’s a fairly advanced system with many pitfalls, I would like to share some of my experiences concerning speaking URLs to other Typo3 users. The configurations I describe are more like guidelines, not written stone tablets from beardy deities.

Their display will be weak and affected by the intensive moonlight.
Now this was among the most unpredictable news I’ve heard in a while. After a decade of really awful productions (not that any of his eighties’ movies are any good, either), Stallone returns to the basics and goes for a revitalization of the two characters that made him famous: Rocky Balboa and John Rambo. That’s right, say hello to Rocky 6 and Rambo 4. Unfortunately this is not a joke.
It had to come to this. With the explosive growth of the world-wide net we all love and hate, sooner or later we would have a conflict regarding the control of it. The issue, in short, is that George W Bush would prefer to remain the sheriff of the internet.
The release party for the new album “Playing the angel” by Depeche Mode was upon us and the stage was set for the all-star tribute band tentatively called 101, consisting of Robert from Elegant Machinery, Alexander from SPOCK (replacing Jarmo from Mr Jones Machine), Johan from Diskodiktator and Magnus from Top Gun (yes, brother of Jay-Jay).
