Sublime Text 3 is the best code editor I have ever used. When I cannot use it at work, I really notice it. Multiple cursor feature alone is worth the cost. Great software! Many excellent plugins! Start with this excellent free tutorial

Converted all of the vacation pictures to use foundation. All vacation pictures pages are now responsive.

Converted this site's search functionality to use: Foundation, Flask, and jQuery. So far in my limited experience, I prefer Foundation to Bootstrap. Flask is a nice lightweight Python web microframework. is an excellent blog post about running Flask on bluehost.

After jEdit's latest version had the fuzzy font issue on MacOSX again (It still looks great on Linux). I have switched to Sublime Text 3, which is a great great code editor.

Last week I attended Python Fundamentals, at Marakana, it was an outstanding introduction to the Python programming language. I had done some Python studying (1 book and 1 online course) on my own, but Python Fundamentals brought it all together nicely. Simeon Franklin is an excellent instructor. I hope to return for the advanced Python course someday.
