Hello everyone.  Apologies for dropping off the face of the earth here last year; my personal life kinda got hectic.
Knowhow Trading Post / Portable HTML

So here's the story - I was working on a website (I wouldn't mind having it hosted here, but I'm not going to even ask until several months after it's finished).  The work was being done on my old computer (see the topic talking about the Grub boot error to see why I can't use that computer anymore).  Because my actual online time is restricted normally (my parents include offline activities too in the time limits, which would include building a web page), I'm having trouble making the web page.  Now, I know enough HTML to do the page on my Palm handheld, but only to a point; I'd like to create images, write the page, and preview the page all from my handheld (I've been known to do random typos at weird places in a page that completely mess the thing up).  Does anyone know of any PalmOS HTML editors that would let me do such a thing for free or really cheap (Money=none.  Spent it all on getting the handheld and a keyboard for it) and would work on a low-res screen (160 x 160) and in Palm OS 5?  Otherwise I have to go about this the hard and frustrating way (I'll have to either keep my site's structure in another document and switch back and forth, which is a pain, or try to remember the whole thing, which is an even bigger pain) and I won't have the same amount of nice graphics (I have a simple sketching app, but I'm not nearly enough of a "Pen and paper" artist that can make anything that looks good (gimmie Gimp or Blender, though...)) to spice up the site.
Knowhow Trading Post / This is... weird...

I have an interesting computer problem for you guys.  When I attempt to connect to without an anonymizer (I'm using a nice little site called FireProx right now to get here), I get a timeout error in both Internet Explorer and Firefox, as well as a web app for my PDA (it connects directly to the web without the use of a browser and it tells me that the pages I have from were not downloaded because the connection timed out).  I've restarted the computer multiple times, and cleared my cache in Firefox, but with no success.

Deviant Art's also been weird on this connection; it loads competely plain text (no images, etc).  Haven't tried it through the anonymizer yet (there's too many popups when loading pages)

The computer I'm using runs Windows XP Sp2, IE 6 (I think) and Firefox 1.0.7.
Knowhow Trading Post / Ubuntu Linux - Grub Boot Error # 15
September 29, 2005, 12:27:13 PM
So... yesterday I got my long awaited Ubuntu Linux CDs in the mail.  After I backed up my important files to a Jump Drive, I installed it using the default settings (this is the first time I've installed Linux)

When my computer attempts to boot from the hard drive it tells me all the stuff about grub loading, then it gives me an error message, citing error number 15 (can't give the exact message now - I'm at school.  Fell asleep trying to fix it last night...)

What is error number 15, and how do I fix it?  This isn't really urgent (it boots from the LiveCD fine), but I'd like to have a Hard Disk based OS.
