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.
I want to submit an astrological death chart to Randi's site.
Yep, I've got that one and the Annotated Frankenstein, another great book.
From The Best Week Ever: "...things are looking up for Kath. She's found a new man. A successful man. Sadly, it's not her absolutely adorable assistant Tom (what chemistry those kids have!), rather... a much bigger, richer man. Co-founder of Apple Computers Steve Wozniak to be exact. The two met after Steve saw Kathy perform. Now, we know Steve might not be the handsomest man around, but fans of Kathy know that looks really aren't that important to her. And looks aside... could you really ask for a better catch than the co-founder of Apple F**king Computers? Wethinks not. And, as a side note, from what we've seen on her reality show, Kathy is an Apple girl through and through... which is adorable!"

WASHINGTON -- The House rejected two measures Wednesday that would have required President Bush to seek congressional approval before attacking Iran.
The proposals were offered as amendments to a $646 billion defense policy bill for the 2008 budget year, which starts Oct. 1.
A man charged with killing a 25-year-old Boise State University student met him on Internet gaming sites and then used the Web to track him down, according to court records.
Authorities say Delling embarked on a 6,000-mile Western road trip that left two people dead and another seriously injured.
Details of what games and what might have transpired to trigger such an event, have yet to be revealed."
The aim of this 'wikipedia' like is to propose tasks that eventually would be performed by someone able to do it.
The site administrators encourage the use of open source software to accomplish this. For instance, they propose Gimp for image editing of Maddie pictures and Blender for 3D models creation.
Not to forget, also, that the site infrastructure is provided by the well known MediaWiki framework.
Further developments regarding open source contribution in this field are expected soon."
The ban, which takes place immediately, actually was imposed in February and was not prompted by any event or study, according to Army Col. Gary Keck, a Defense Department spokesman. He confirmed that bandwidth was the issue and said the decision is "not about content."
The new policy takes effect as the military has, ironically, aggressively turned to YouTube as a means of broadcasting what it considers to be the more positive aspects of its work in Iraq and Afghanistan as a way of countering what it considers to be negative news coverage.
The sites blocked by the Defense Department: MySpace, YouTube, Metacafe, IFilm, StupidVideos, FileCabi, BlackPlanet, hi5, Photobucket, Pandora, MTV, 1.fm and Live365."
