I'm as active as ever online, but my blogging has fallen silent. There's plenty of other and better venues then how I had been using this blog. These days, my blog is essentially a honeypot. Mollum is great, but I still get enough of day that it's time I pull the plug, and shut down the circus. Goodbye, the faux-nice though poor English flattery including your spam link.
Here are my steps to configuring a new Mac OS X 10.8.4 laptop for my needs:

There are a lot of great points made in this blog post. I also wish vim would standardize on how one extends it. Yet, regarding this snippet; "It’s the new hotness and has a more active community than Vim does." I remember when textmate was the new "hotness," too. "Gotta checkout TextMate!" I never did as Mac wasn't my main platform at the time. Yet, TextMate's time has come and gone. I suspect that at its apex TextMate had a comparatively more "vibrant" community as well.
This is quick post and test of the redesigned Skrinak Creative web site. We switched the site over to the Drupal Omega theme, and I'm quite pleased with how Omega helps with making a site responsive. More to follow.
