    1 - HomeSite - The greatest ASP editor
    2 - Access97 - For making database, duh

    4 - FlashFXP - My FXP (and FTP) program.
    5 - 4 instances of IE6 which have loaded:
    1) Sitepoint
    2) What I'm working on for work
    3) What i'm working on for me and jeremy
    4) theregister.co.uk
    6 - that UD Agent thing for the cancer thing for sitepoint

    at home: loads of coffee, a overflowing ashtray, beer, feeder usually playing in CD player (i lke coding to them for some reason ), i used to have my cat sitting on my lap untill he went AWOL, and the programs i have open;
    1 - HomeSite - The greatest ASP editor

    I eat in front of my computer Nicky! In fact, I'm eating dinner right now.

    I'm stuck on Windows 98 for the time being, so here's what I do in the order that I do it.
    • Open Internet Connection
    • Open Apache
    • Open MySQL
    • Open a couple of instances of IE and NS
    • Go to SitePoint
    • Open AIM
    • Open PHP-Coder
    • Open Sonique and listen to tunes
    • Finish coding a section
    • Windows grinds to a halt
    • Reboot
    • Open Internet Connection
    • Open Apache
    • Open MySQL
    • Open a couple of instances of IE and NS
    • Go to SitePoint
    • Open AIM
    • Open PHP-Coder
    • Open Sonique and listen to tunes
    • Continue coding a section
    • Windows grinds to a halt
    • Reboot
    • Open Internet Connection....
    Sometimes I'll have Micrografx Picture Publisher and The GIMP running as well....

    Hi again Aes Whats PHP-Coder?

    I don't run MySQL / PHP on my main (w98) box at the moment, I think the server program I got is a bit dodgy. As soon as I tried to customise it, it got angree. Also, as I have lots o information on my computer don't really want any servers running.

    Normally I have Outlook open but if I'm coding I might close that. Lots of IE windows. SSH program, editpad, thats about it

    I used to have MTV on, but allways got destracted! Sitepoint is enough of a distration Meant to be coding now! oops.

    As for food with computer. Yeah I too had to get a new keyboard, but not nearly as bad as "an associate" he was having his dinner by the computer and dropped his fork as he had the side of his computer open he just picked it up though! He was a nutter, he also tried to take out a hard drive when his computer was still on! Anyways best get back 2 it.

    I eat at my desk all the time. French bread pizza, frozen pizza, hot pockets (with pizza-like ingredients), Combos...all that stuff. Plenty of Diet Pepsi/Pepsi One, too.

    Anyway, I have all kinds of things opening, but I primarily use TextPad. If I'm uploading the edited files as well, I'll probably have WS_FTP open. Of course, I'll alos have a browser window open, and perhaps Eudora in the background, and Winamp playing while I type. It depends.

    Here we go...

    Well, here's what I work with anyway. I'm also guilty of eating in front of the computer. Just gotta shake the crumbs out of the keyboard and mouse once in a while. I've got a nice big wrap around type desk, so I can kind of eat off to the side.

    • Dreamweaver 4
    • Metapad - Trying out PHPedit today.
    • PHP.net - Just realized how useful that site really is.
    • WS_FTP
    • Apache
    • MySQL
    • PHP
    • UltraPlayer
    • "Sort" folder, holds all my scripts, incomplete stuff, clips, images, etc. Never got around to sorting it.
    • AOL Instant Messenger
    • IE for each page that i'm working on.
    • Colorpad - Very useful little program.
    • Photoshop 5.5 - Always open for those quick changes.

    It's a color picker, gives the color code of anything you point it at. Useful for matching colors or finding a different one to use. It's also nice because it's a small program that doesn't get in the way, can be minimized to the system tray too.
