I love Vim and Textmate

If you follow me you’ll notice that I’ve been playing with Vim lately. For almost a year now I’ve been a TextMate fan but something about Vim just called to me. Maybe it was the feeling that knowing Vim increased my geek cred just like terminal hackery does. Why Vim Really anyone doing any type […]

Storing Code Snippets for Productivity

A Coders Problem So my regular coding has progressed to a point that I’m sure many other have hit. I’ve built a huge reference of code that I need to reuse for many projects and digging through the old projects is getting un-manageable so I need a solution that keeps my reusable code organized and […]

EasyTask Review: If Only

Recently I reviewed The Hit List and while it is a great application I found a number of areas that gave me pause in using it long term. Since then I’ve been using EasyTask which appealed because of it’s cross-platform nature and the offsite sync, not to mention the price which includes versions for both […]

Review of The Hit List: It came with a Bundle

The Great Windows Code Editor Hunt: Komodo Edit

Second up on my list of code editors to review is Komodo Edit. No we’re not talking about the paid IDE but the free version. The Good Komodo Edit is developed on the Mozilla platform which means it’s a cross-platform code editor just like Firefox is a cross-platform web browser. As I said when I […]

The Great Windows Code Editor Hunt: Dreamweaver

This is the second post in The Great Windows Code Editor Hunt series. Today we’ll look at Dreamweaver as a code editor. The Good Dreamweaver has come a long way for coders since CS3. When I used the CS3 version it was barely tolerable as a code editor. I don’t remember why at this point […]

The Great Windows Code Editor Hunt

I’m a web designer/programmer so I spend a good portion of a day in a code editor (at least if it’s a good day). I’m pretty particular about what code editor I use and what features it needs so I’m on a hunt for a great code editor for Windows. My plan is to use […]

Can We Get by with Web Apps?

Web apps have been heralded as the solution to our online and offline lives. We do not have to install software on our machines.
