TextMate book

Last week, a copy of TextMate: Power Editing for the Mac landed on my desk. TextMate has been a part of my life for about a year now. I can’t be doing without it (“Edit in TextMate” is worth the price of entry alone). I consider myself a reasonably advanced user. Boy, was I wrong. […]

TextMate tip

I had an interesting little run-in with TextMate today. I’ve just been turned on (finally) to the lovely TODO bundle. However, it was producing very spurious results and taking a long time to do so.

A Month of Mac

I’m a little concerned that I don’t have the source code for my editor, but we’ll see how that goes. I’m normally a devout Emacs or […]
