Building a website? Don't know where to start? Let me help you.

Creating websites from scratch is a serious business. You need to have an idea. You need to have a design. And you need tools to build the sites with. Then, you need to be familiar with HTML, the language of the web, before you can actually start working.

Not necessarily. It is possible to build reasonable websites without being a master in HTML, XHTML, CSS, or other related languages. While it definitely helps to be proficient in at least one of these, you can start with nothing more than a handful of enthusiasm.

To this end, people use HTML editors. These are web-building programs that automatically wrap free text in relevant code, sparing writers the need to dabble in technical details and lets them focus on content.

In this article, I'm going to present a pair of such HTML editors, which you can use to build your websites. Both fall into the category of What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG), meaning that they allow you to see what the final product should look like instantly, in real time, without long, complex compilations or conversions.

The two candidates are KompoZer and Bluefish.

    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
