Hi Sam, great seeing you here. I am not a fanboy, but I don’t mind admitting that finding Atom ended agony that had bedeviled me for years, with IDEs that were pigs with resources, full of stuff I didn’t need, and with nothing like the flexibility of Atom.

Changed color in the style for p tag [rgb(0,255,0) is green]:
