Well, it has been a while since I posted any of my progress on the house. So
here is a little update.
This weekend I finished laying all the tile in the bathroom shower, the
bullnosed tiles for the baseboard and setting the shelf in the shower.
I also bought a wash tub for the garage. I did this so I can scrub my hands
and my tools without having to come inside the house. Tonight I constructed the
pipe system to connect from the wash tub to the existing drain system in the
Anyways, my next steps for the bathroom are to clean all the tiles and make
sure the grout paths are clear. Once, I have cleaned up the tile and grout
paths I will be ready to grout the tiles. I will be using a polyblend sanded
grout and a color matched caulk in the inner corners of the shower. I was told
that I should use the caulk in the inner corners because the walls expand and
shrink as the temperature changes and it usually causes grout in the inner
corners to crack. Hence, use caulk because it is more flexible and can absorb
the expansion and contraction of the walls.
I feel pretty good about all the progress I have made this weekend and can’t
wait for the shelf to finish setting so that I can clean up all the tile and
get to grouting. The vision of the bathroom is finally starting to come
together and I can’t wait to get it finished.
Till next time.
Well, I am back with some more updates on my Sublime Text 2 Guard
Plugin. This is a smaller release
than the last as I have been very busy. Despite its small stature it is an
exciting one as we have another contribution to honor. The following are the
- Fixed comma, single quote, question mark color issues
- Fixed small color issue caused by
- Better console colors, change
0 failures from red to green (Thanks
A special thanks goes out to @lidanh for the code
contribution. The new colors are much nicer and the
0 failures being green
instead of red makes it easier to detect success vs failure.
Thanks also goes out to all the users of the Sublime Text 2 Guard
Plugin. Especially, the users that
have been submitting bug reports and feature requests. This plugin wouldn’t
exist without the direction and feedback from you all.
Please continue to provide feedback via Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin
issues on our GitHub page.
Relatively recently I switched to ZSH for my shell. The primary reason I
switched was that I had more flexibility in prompts as I can setup a right
prompt and a left prompt. I also like the completion interfacing that ZSH
provides. Anyways, I finally got around to generalizing my ZSH setup and
makeing it available on GitHub as a backup for myself so that I can easily set
it up again in the future, as well as a means of sharing my setup with all of
you. Anyways, it is availabe on GitHub at http://github.com/cyphactor/dotzsh
with instructions on how to install it using git.
Well, I got some more updates for you all.
My Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin has recently been recognized as an essential
Sublime Text 2 plugin on a nettuts+ blog post. Thanks to this publicity and the
exposure via Package Control, Twitter, GitHub, and Google I have gotten some
decent feedback, especially around my recent addition of colored output. Thanks
to all that feedback I have pushed out the following improvements to the
Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin:
- Support for directory paths with spaces (#19, Thanks @ffmike)
- Fixed dash based coloring issue (#16)
- Fixed single quote based coloring issue (#17)
- Fixed question mark based coloring issue (#20)
- Fixed period based coloring issue (#21)
- Fixed success dot section identification & coloring issue (#22)
- Fixed a second single quote based coloring issue (#23)
- Added command relativity (#24)
The above break down of improvements include primarily a bunch of coloring
fixes, command relativity, and one very important issue that deserves some
recognition, issue #19 by
@ffmike. This is the Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin’s
first contribution. Much thanks goes out to @ffmike
for being our first contributor.
As usual if any of you have identified bugs or features that you would like
added please submit them on the GitHub Issues page for the Sublime Text 2
I know there are a number of you who have been eagerly awaiting this moment. I
sure have been. I am proud to announce the first release of the Sublime Text 2
Guard Plugin that provides colored
output. Basically, it ended up that I had to define a language file to identify
the entities in the output and then define a theme to color those identified
entities. Once, I did that I simply programatically set the color_scheme and
syntax options for the output panel and like magic colors worked. Given the
complexity of the language definition and the limited test cases I had when
developing I am sure there are going to be some bugs to work out. So, as usual
please create issues if you find any of these
