Moving away from Visual Studio/Resharper?

I've been using Visual Studio/Resharper for years, for whatever reason I've been determined to break my reliance on it, or at least prove I can work without it. I've been working in more node applications and thought it'd be a good reason to get out of it. Can I really get an equivalent experience out of Sublime/VIM/emacs? How do I do that? [more inside]

Best practices for scientific Python prototyping/debugging?

I'm using Python in my research now to build some models and analyze some data. I've done this with Matlab and R in the past and became fairly used to running individual lines or blocks of code at a time and doing a lot of interactive printing and plotting from the console. This behavior seems to be a bit more difficult in Python and I'm trying to find the best way to be productive. [more inside]

Wordpress Workflow

I'm designing a custom Wordpress theme as part of a project. In addition to the typical Wordpress install, there's also going to be a social media plug-in on top of it (which has already been picked out and installed by another member of the project). This is the most complicated bit of web development that I've done, so I'm curious: what sort of workflow should I set up to make things easy on myself? [more inside]

EIDE -> PATA, supposed to be easy swap?

I'm replacing an EIDE drive in my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with a PATA one, thought that would be an easy swap. But, of course, I'm here, so it wasn't. The laptop now isn't seeing my new HDD, so I'm guessing I need to update something in the BIOS (ver. A07, 6/27/2005)? The new drive is a Western Dig Scorio Blue, if that makes any difference. Little help?

Trying to get old files from older HDD

I'm trying to get my old files off of an old Hard-disk. Old PC is XP newer PC is Vista. I removed the Hardisk from the OLD computer. I bought a USB to SATA/IDE cable. When I plug in the Hard-disk via USB, I hear the confirmation tone that you hear everytime you plug in a USB. I see a "ST340082 0AS SCSI Disk Device" in the "Safely remove hardware" icon in the tray. but I do not see the Drive. I can't really afford an External Hard drive. But I will eventually if I have to. Cna anyone help me please.

How to take an internal hard drive and make it external

What do I need to know about hard drive enclosures? My computer (PC) died this morning and I want to pull out the 2 hard drives and use them as external drives for my new Mac. I don't know if they're FAT32 or NTFS. I don't know if they're IDE or SATA. How do I find out? Do I need to? A little background on my old PC. It was one of the first P4 3.0 PCs with hyperthreading technology. I've had it for ~4 years

Oh, I wasn't supposed to bang it that hard?

An internal serial ATA (SATA) 3.5" hard drive pulled from an iMac G5 (the iMac is not accessible). A FireWire IDE enclosure. I live in Brooklyn and want some place open tonight (magically) or early tomorrow to find either a USB2 adapter for the SATA drive, a cheap USB2/FireWire enclosure, or an SATA>IDE adapter so I can use my current enclosure. (Give me any ideas that don't involve J&R.) Bonus points for Brooklyn - other boroughs are cool too, or any of these devices on loan from someone extremely generous would also be awesome!
