Error: no mixin named container or border-box-sizing

It can be hard to tell why a mixin fails in a sass file. After all, if the mixin isn't included in your dependencies automatically as it was before, grepping for it in the files won't turn up anything.

8: Programatically Filter Current Nid from Views Block Listing

Views has a setting to exclude the current nid from the URL from the listing one is currently viewing.

If you don't exclude the current node, your current node will be listed in the "related content" block on itself. Well, obviously one is related to oneself, one thinks.

First, I tired to accomplish this through the UI with these steps, below.
