IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Here are two links to editors which do not support suto complete or
code help but I like them anyway:
JEdit: http://www.jedit.org/
jVi: http://jvi.sourceforge.net/jvi-main.html (only if you know what vi is !!!)

Use Forte 3.0 Community Edition from Sun. It's still in the Early Access Program, meaning in beta, but it's based on the open source of NetBeans and it has all the featuers a Java developer would like from an IDE (auto-complete too, of course). And it's getting faster with each update, so probably will be very fast on the official release. Just the memory requirements are a litte too much right now, but on a 256 MB machine it is already ok.

Hiya ccaprar, and welcome to Experts Exchange!

We only really post Answers to questions when everything has been discussed...

Maybe posting that as a comment would have been better, as it would leave the question on the main list, so others could see it and respond?

Never mind, there will always be a next time :-)

Have fun!

Tim.
