This is a general question for all three of you! :)
What dev tools do you use daily?

What was the most interesting scssy code refactoring you've ever done in a project? Could be just the concept not the actual code. (although that would be awesome!)
Are there some weird bugs in the Twitter Bootstrap Sass project? I'm getting this horizontal scrolling bar only during specific widths. The row class is causing it. It's unusual.
Sass is so good that I can't stop myself from using nesting feature. What level of nesting is good according to you?
