Rapid web development using Laravel and Sublime Text - very nice. Shows what can be done if you take time to learn the environment you spend most of your time in.

It is really nice indeed. But I'd like to see if these scaffolding tools become as much useful as the video shows when the projects gets way bigger. In order to keep the project DRY and maintainable, one should increase the reusability of the existing code. However, In the example in the video, the author seems to be using different Views, Controllers, Models etc. for new things which usually is not the case when you have much bigger project so these scaffolding tools become less and less useful.

MCR Motorcycle Replacements
79 Crawford Street, Dunedin, 9016
I walked into MCR for the first time a couple of weeks ago to see if they had any 50cc scooters and was surprised to see Jeremey Beath there as he sold me my first 50cc scooter at M&V quite a few years earlier. Jeremey was outstanding and went to great lengths to help me choose a scooter, including a long test drive of a brand new scooter, advice on licensing, who to contact for riding lessons and handling and even skipping his own lunch break to take me across town with a 125cc scooter for a private road test ride. He was available by email, phone and text message with very quick turnaround times. I ended up buying the 125cc scooter and for a stellar price with a great deal on some extras. Jeremey is a genuine nice guy and a credit to MCR. Thanks Jeremey, you're a star!
Quality Excellent

Awesome. So you now need to make the dog look like a pizza with a slice missing and run around the screen like a maze and eat dots and stay away from ghosts! You could call it Bobman.

Thanks to this guy (and countless others) for the assistance with the internals of the Nexus 7 tablet. Mine wasn't charging and was flickering "black static" when plugged into charger. Pushed the battery connector back in and we're back in business.

I've not tried SASS yet but this blog post seems to ask my concerns about it. Has anyone here used it and do you have a "fix" for matching SASS line numbers with the line reference in the Chrome Inspector or Firebug? http://cognition.happycog.com/article/preprocess-this
