ebay is an unknown at this point

ebay is offline
I found a freeware editor that is just amazing. I was using a freeware one called Crimson Editor for programming that looked a lot like the Visual C++ 6.0 IDE from Microsoft. Along with the ability to edit code quickly it had a keystroke macro feature that allowed for some quick work on repetitive tasks.

Fast forward to Smultron. Smultron is an equivolent product and then some. It's most endearing feature is the ability to compose bash shell scripts that integrate with the editing session. This means that any command available at the terminal shell is available within the editor. I just wrote a script that loads a standard html template I like. You can sort items in the document, insert system time/date, and do just about any task you can write a bash script for. There's unlimited commands available also (Crimson had a ten command limit).

I'm in heaven!
