I have my favourite tools to do building projects with.  I don’t even know if I always need them, but when starting a new project, I always bring them.

And eventually, I need them.

They are the old stalwarts that never fail.

Similarly, the tools I write and code with don’t change much anymore.  I’ve tried a variety of tools but they generally all come back to the same ones.  I drift back because they do what they were intended to do and they do it well.

I keep the toolbox small because what I have can do it all.  When the toolbox gets too big, it gets muddled, and confused and I spend more time trying out things than getting the actual work done.
