So far, I've only opened one of my presents.

It's exactly what I was wishing for, a fully-licenced academic edition of NewTek LightWave 3D [8] :).

Just installed and had a look at some of the demo scenes.

Check how cool these default ninjas are! :D

then why is dreamweaver the most widely used program and notepad is stupid in that it doesnt help you remember alot of coding i.e. if you forget a piece of code.. nothing to remind you.
dreamweaver may do the preview mode, but i only use it to see what the page is like, i still go into the code view to change bits (so i dont have todo the use notepad, save, open in ie bit, ie now takes more ram up then it should.. but so does dw but its ok since the tonnes of extra goodies like sorta built in FTP ¬_¬ which aint in ie in terms of upload.)
i havent encountered any good web designers who use notepad yet. infact, many professionals use dreamweaver. Notepad is just the starter bit. it doesnt check the code and tell you whats wrong (so mistakes you make can fk ie when you go and look at the page, i know so since people arent perfect theyll forget some things until it causes them trouble like having to reinstall i.e. which on some machines means either switch to a diff browser and learn that or reinstall windows... which has happened. ok thats java among the other scripting languages but still same point. dreamweaver checks the code. if you want to go back and change a line or so and cuz in notepad it may look like chaos, and so miss it, dreamweaver will help by just in view mode.. click the table or whatever you want to change, click to code.. and its there.
want more on why notepad isnt what real developers use?

LOL yes there are people who design web sites for a living that use Dreamweaver, but have you seen their code? If your code looks like chaos in Notepad, you've got a problem. WYSIWG editors are horrendous, but hey if you want to keep using them go ahead. My point was that you don't get as good a knowledge of HTML if you don't write it yourself from scratch. The only real developers that don't use Notepad are using a similar text editor with syntax highlighting, which can be handy I guess but I don't really need it since my code is very clean and easy to read.

Vi doesn't stand for anything. It's short for the command "visual" used in ex. Besides Vi is good. If you don't like it try Vimproved, or pico. I heard those two are really good bash text editors.

1. vi is teh sux.
2. a guy at work was telling me that George Lucas has again changed the movies for the second time to make them closer to his original vision. Some SW fans hate it, but I wish they would have done something similar with Trek. So many errors to fix!

I use it all the time, what do you find "painful" about it?
I have to say though, pico is way better then vi, but most people with rh9, mandrake, and SuSE only have vi installed.
