Quote - " You mean, we broke his web page???"
Not necessarily broke the guy's page, just temporarily out of service.
You see, every time a web page is viewed by a visitor, it takes a
certain amount of data transferred from his site to your computer. That
data transfer is called "bandwidth" useage. Some web sites are only
allowed to transfer a limited amount of data per day or per month (i.e.
a limited amount of bandwidth useage per day or per month). So if his
web page (or web site in general) becomes really popular he'll quickly
exceed his bandwidth.
Example, if his bandwidth useage is 25Megs per month and his site is
busy enough that the 25Megs is used up on the 19th, he has to wait for
the beginning of the next month before anyone can view his site. He has
a choice of either staying where he is at or "renting" space on another
server where he can buy more bandwidth useage. Many servers now offer
This is why its important to set up a web page that isn't too big in
file size, so as not to chew up too much bandwidth when the site
becomes popular. Images file size is usually the big culprit.
Hope that helps in an explaination.
I kinda knew all that. I was going for humor.
I need to try my hand at writing a page again. I did 4 or 5 years
back, Netscape had an HTML editor that was pretty basic, did the job
for two canoe clubs. But the new stuff available has zoomed beyond
Can you suggest a good web page editor?

Couple years ago I was starting to use a program called NoteTab Pro. It worked
for me, and seemed pretty simple (which is about the ONLY way I'd get it to
work). I don't know what kind of changes have been made in the past two years,
though, either in the program or the field.
There's a free version, too, IIRC.

NoteTab Pro is still my main editor, Charlie, but I've always
handcoded HTML, PHP, CSS, and JS files anyway.
P.S: Feel free to refer him to me. I'd love to developing all the
sites for the Wreckers' pages. ;)

I missed the humor :-/. Anyway, I use BlueDomino's CoffeCup HTML
Editor. Its got a lot of stuff and few very powerful features that as
far as I know, no other program has. There's a link on the bottom of my
homepage at http://www.woodworkersworkshop.com

Seriously, I use vim, which Just Works any any platform you might care

EMACS has also been ported everywhere, but as someone once said, "Emacs
is a great operating system, but it doesn't ahve a good editor."
