I just noticed that Joel Spolsky has used a quote from my site in his advertising for CityDesk. Cool! If you maintain a web site, I highly recommend it.
I’ve written a new article on using CityDesk, Index Pages. I also modified the Folders article after swapping tips with Terry Kearns – having a file named Index in each folder of the site makes it confusing when editing them. Now I just use the keyword “(Index)” to identify articles that are topic indexes, and… Continue reading New CityDesk Article – Index Pages
