I somehow made a booboo with my harddrive's MBR two days ago, and now I can't boot any Windows anymore. I'm beginning to just love Linux, but it's not as easy to code on this platform yet. I miss EditPlus2, but now that I found BLueFish and that I have installed a recent Apache/PHP/MySQL combo, things should be back to normal in a few days.

Also, to anyone who knows me on ICQ, please message me. I cannot import my contact-list from Windows and I don't remember all your e-mail addies. Other than that, things should be ok.

It may be possible to get Windows back. I don't know your situation, but you could try editing your lilo.conf file if you use LILO to boot your computer.

[example addition to /etc/lilo.conf file]
other=/dev/hda2
label=NT
table=/dev/hda

just make sure that /dev/hda2 is pointing at the partition with Windows on it. And, no, it is not necessary for you to have Windows NT.

After editing run /sbin/lilo

Hope that helps.

don't use windows.

i'd be suggesting you try jedit... which is kind of good, or you could just simply break down and buy a mac with os x and develop from there.

unix is by far easier to code, michel. linux is the same, just a less-functional copy.

I'm talking about usable text editors. I hope jEdit is OK on Unix, as it was a sluggish excuse of an editor on Win2k's java. If not, I might just go code in nEdit.
Or I can spend three months getting used to Emacs's abominations of user-unfriendliness.

Julian, I would run Lilo anytime, if my computer didn't block on startup. It displays "LI" and stops. So I can only boot with a floppy. Doesn't matter much, I only had to boot twice since I'm on Linux.

emacs is easy ; ) 

jedit works wonderfully on os x, we've got java 2 installed here... windows xp = 0

hey, don't say this, I just fetched an archive of the default wallpapers in XP, they rock ! they're quite the only thing I like in XP, actually. "ah", I said, "nice green hill ! now what's that confusing block that pops up on the start button ? a Florida vote bulletin ?"

uh? i know the new xp wallpapers are great -- os x's suck. but that's wallpaper only,

and xp = 0 means that java doesn't even ship with xp itself.

Try Emacs, it's really the best editor for developer out there. I'm using it for translating other peoples software (i18n, gettext), to write my HTML and PHP and I've alos started to use it's version control functions which allows me to keep track of my code and also generates a ChangeLog if I need : )

With all the emacs hyping here, I just /have/ to mention vim (and start an editor flamewar while I'm at it). Unlike emacs, you don't have to press Escape - Meta - Alt - Control - Shift all the time : )  Screen + Vim + Ctags/Cscope rocks as a development environment.

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
