Sometimes, people underestimate the power of showing one's appreciation to another for a tool they lent, or a service they provided. I'd like to take the time to thank the following services, tools, and people for the work they shared, making it possible to bring to you the stuff you're reading here.
- Coffitivity -- the general background sounds were surprisingly soothing while I was working on whipping my domain into shape, and were good when I had needed a focus switch from...
- Soma FM -- listener supported, commercial-free underground radio in several flavors. I particularly like Groove Salad.
- Silktide's 'Nibbler' -- a simple tool that analyzes five pages of your website and suggests how to improve many things about it.
- Freebie.Supply -- Without the freebie.supply, I wouldn't have stumbled across a few of the tools I've mentioned here.
- Snapcard -- an easy to use digital currency wallet and acquisition service, with tools for merchants1.
- HTML-Kit -- a really nice HTML editor that, instead of babysitting you, offers you the right tool at the right time. A previous version had been part of my long time arsenal of editing, and the newer, paid version is worth every dollar spent.
- Notepad++ -- Sometimes, I just need to quickly nip a few characters out of a file. Notepad++ is great for that and significantly more.
- W3.org Validator -- The web's a brutal, fickle mistress, but I've relied upon the Validator here for at least a decade. While it's a little iffy on HTML5, it's understandable: The entire web is iffy on HTML5.
1: As proper disclosure, I am also registered as a Snapcard Ambassador, and will gladly chat with you about digital currencies.
