So, I've been a Mac guy for a while now. Switching way back in 2007 to a Macbook Pro with Tiger on it. Every update since has gone smooth. I purchased a Mac Mini for my wife in 2009 and its been a great machine that we use at home. A few weeks ago I thought, I know, I'll update this thing from Leopard to Lion and she'll love it. Uhh, no. Turns out Lion has all sorts of WiFi issues (just Google it) and I was one of them. I tried every fix I saw including the official one which is a joke.

A while back I posted a tutorial on how to style Twitter Bootstrap and specifically build out new Mezzanine themes using the bootstrap framework. Bootstrap uses Less files which are compiled to css files. In the video I show you how I set it up so that I can easily style a new site using bootstrap without modifying the bootstrap files directly. That makes it easy to update bootstrap later without having to merge your changes back in.

A few months ago the water pump on my wonderfully trusty Audi A4 (98) went out. That wasn't all, the oil pan had become cracked and was leaking as well, along with a few other little things. For fun I decided to fix it myself. There were a couple of parts that weren't fun, like having to take off the entire front end to get to the water pump. And one of the Torx heads on a bolt was stripped but other than that, easy peezy. Runs like a champ again and no leaks.

Sublime Text 2 replaced Textmate as my default editor (sorry TM, you were awesome while it lasted) over six months ago and I haven't looked back.
