More on SiteBuilder...

...and more to bore you, I suspect! Anyway, I stated before that I rather like Yahoo's SiteBuilder. It's not perfect but it gives me the sort of artistic freedom I expect from most of the other programs I use. As I said, writing html is like trying to paint a picture with a typewriter.

Well, okay, I'll do little html edits here and there (like adding font stacks). But I don't like html editors in general, even the wysiwyg sort. They still seem stodgy and slow down my creativity. Could you see graphic artists accepting those sort of interfaces in Adobe Photoshop or Corel Draw?

I did get it working in compatibility mode on Windows 7 64 bit. I'm not sure I even needed to do that. But I have continued to have one big problem -- also on Windows XP -- and that is their upload procedure. It gives me lots of trouble and that may be caused in large part by my slow and erratic dial-up connection. I finally got it to work on my Windows 7 machine by turning off the secure connection.

So it's my my web site computer from here on. I can get some serious updating done now. And I won't need to change my software!
