Well, my attempts at learning Omega 4 was a total disaster. It turns out the Omega 4 uses Sass and in order to use Sass one must install all kinds of other program/tools. The procedure for windows was tedious and ended up not working very well so I figured I would install it on my LINUX VM but ended up being just as frustrating and in the process of trying to get Sass installed I ended up hosing up the OS. I ended up reinstalling LINUX twice because the first time reinstalling it I upgraded everything and ended up with incapability issues (guess I need to learn much more about LINUX before doing anything as advanced as upgrading php to 5.5 and drush to 7) but I finally got things up and running again and I decided to abandon Omega 4 for the moment. I got Aegir back up and running and installed a couple of distributions, Commerce KickStart and Bahai Incubator.
I can't seem to catch a break lately. I started the task of learning Omega 4 (a theme creator module) so I can begin my next project, building a website for my class reunion. I figure this would be a good project to start practicing all the tutorials I have been going through.
