comment How to easily write a website using a text editor and version control?
Your question is very open ended, you could achieve your goal with dozens of programming languages, a multitude of platforms (hosted, self-hosted, SAAP, IAAP, whatnot) and it all depends on how well you master these. I fear you'll have to break down the problem into more bite-sized pieces and try to solve those. If you have questions about those more isolated problems, you're always welcome to ask again.

comment How can I prevent my computer from waking up accidentally?
Given that I can still wake my computer by clicking on my mouse, even though I disabled it, I think your answer must have been what solved my problem. So enjoy the bounty :-)

comment Run Windows Store Apps in a Window on the Desktop in Windows 8?
Does this allow you to run multiple Metro apps in different windows? Also does this simply access your currently installed Apps or do you need to install apps within the simulator?
