    Interesting to see you describe your hardware and software environment as basic tools. Seems like lots of people get wrapped up in endless tweaking, tuning, configuring, etc. all in the name of “optimization.” Just get something reliable, and leave it alone.

    If you don’t already have at least 2 large monitors, then run to the store (well, Amazon) and get your equipment right. Hardware is cheap. Your time isn’t. So many things are so much easier to accomplish when you aren’t staring down the LCD equivalent of a toilet-paper roll.

    While you’re mentioning software tools, suggest WeBuilder as a modern replacement (and improvement over) HomeSite. QVCS is a good version control tool.
