I’m lazy when it comes to HTML authoring. There are few ocassions I need to write HTML — typically only for writing nice ads for Craigslist or eBay. And when I do, I’d prefer to write them quickly with a WYSIWYG 1 editor. Here’s how I discovered a neat and cheap way of doing just that on Mac OS.
A fluorescent light fixture in our house went out. After replacing the bulb, the light still didn’t turn on. So I figured I had nothing to lose by ripping apart the ballast. What I quickly discovered scared me.
So H&R Block’s TaxCut software comes with a web-based separate app for handling deductions. It’s a straight-forward application but doesn’t have much in the way of external file importation support. Enter a good text editor.
My 1-year old is a curious kid. She prides herself in breaking into highly secure bank vaults, er cabinets. In particular, she’s taken a liking to our buffet which houses both china and liquor (neither of which are kid-approved items) behind two toddler-level doors. So I had to come up with a way to keep her out.
Back in October of 2009, I started this ambitious project. I finally got it done a year later.
I says to my wife, I says:
Dear, this new project is going to bring tears to your eyes, it’s so cool!
She’s shaking her head and says to me:
Oh, I’m crying alright.
I added storage space to my old garage by putting in an attic. It was much bigger of a job than I thought it would be.
I might have been a good candidate for the Darwin Awards, but thankfully didn’t bite it.
