I also wanted to point out for my fellow Lotus fans that the article uses the IBM + Lotus acquisition as an example to show how the merge and aquire strategy doesn't always pan out. Lotus was an exciting, innovative software company that has arguably rotted on the vine under IBM's wing.

Okay so I'm starting the "Lemonade Diet" today and figured that this would be a great place to go with all of my thoughts along the way. Just so you know, it's not a reduction diet but a "detox" or a cleanse. It's actually a variation of the Master Cleanse. I definitely don't need to do this to lose weight as I currently weight in at 177. This is more of an attempt to hit reset on the overall physiological state of my body and mind in hopes that I can start over again with modified eating habits. They say that if you can make it past day three, you'll feel amazing. I'll definitely let you know. I tried this once before and didn't get too far. I've developed quite the caffeine habit in recent years and several days into it had an extraordinary headache.
Okay so here's the skinny:
For at least 10 days, drink around 10 servings/day of the following:
2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice NOT BOTTLED JUICE!! (approx. 1/2 lemon),
2 Tablespoons (1 fluid ounce) organic Grade B maple syrup,
1/10 Teaspoon or more cayenne pepper (hot red pepper), and
1 Cup (8 fluid ounces) purified or spring water, NOT fluoridated water.
Some people apparently do this for up to 40 days, which is absolutely insane. Just so know know, my doctor is in on this and has given it his blessing. He has friends that do it 4 times a year and swear by it.

Site Management - if you were building multiple sites, you could manage all of them from this view.
Site Management Detailed
Here is where you actually manage the basics of the site - connectivity, etc.
One-click access to all of your code. Browse to the left and edit in the main frame.
Simply click back and forth between code and preview to see your changes instantly.
You can build each of your CSS styles using this simple builder and get a preview of each style immediately. This tool basically references all styles that are shown on the doc that is currently being edited - HTML or CSS. The style navigator even shows you color and text changes as they will appear on your page.
Built-in SSH terminal.
Built-in reference library. Amazing.
Drill down into a book to find all of the elements that you may want to work with.
Pick an element and fully explore the usage complete with examples. Note the crumbtrail nav on the bottom. Nice touch.
Browse and manage all of your site's assets.
Programming language hints as you type.
Page Element Browser
Click on each page element to browse and select each one within the page.
A HUD browser of all relevant clippings to paste directly into your page. Think of this as your clipboard that you can actually manage. Core Animation used here - when you click on the i button, the pane actually flips over to reveal more info about that particular clip.

When it comes to making his fellow GOP colleagues "mad in the past," McCain said his job is to "do what I know is best for this nation, particularly where our environment is concerned."
Regardless of political party, I love a maverick. Even when i disagree with the candidate's position, nothing excites me more than to see a person stand by their principles regardless of anyone's opinion. I think more than anything else, I look for decisiveness in a leader and the courage to make tough decisions in the face of potential failure.
