    I’ve published a set of email updates I’ve been sending to my family and friends to keep them up to date on my progress since my diagnosis back in January 2013.

    Now I can go back to using BBEdit as I did so lovingly pre-version 10 (when the open document list was in a drawer)! I submitted a ticket requesting that this pane be made resizable in 2011. :)
