Steve falls back in love with TextMate

I have a love/hate relationship with TextMate. I love its power and customizability… I hate how slow it is working with files on a remote file system. My coworkers hate it too because every time TextMate hangs up on me I pound my desk in frustration. The problem is that TextMate refreshes every file in a project every time it regains focus after youve used another program… this can be a looong wait if your connection is slow or you have a lot of files in a project. Well my frustrations have been cured by Ciaran Walsh who has written ReMate a plugin that disables TextMates automatic project tree refresh and replaces it with a context menu to manually refresh the file tree only when you need to.

Now my only frustration is having been a chump for not knowing about ReMate sooner.
