Been a while since I dropped in here so I thought I should sneak in and write something.
I'm not really fond of the direction Ex-C has taken lately... I'm trying to write out a post that explains where I stand and why I think it's wrong - and harmful.
Along the way I had a very nice oppertunity to take a look at some of the editors that come with Linux... I have fallen madly in love with GVIm. Wonderful editor, really powerful and I'm just scratching the surface... It takes a bit to learn, but once you do you never go back.
I've heard a lot about emacs, and am looking forward to learning that as well. Ironically enough, despite the apparently bitter rivalry between the two, there is a plugin/script that integrates the two editing styles. Ironic, no?
Also reading through a book today that is just utterly fascinating. The title is Cultural Literacy, author is E. D. Hirsch. Truly mind-opening text. It lays out exactly why you need to be well-read.
I'll probably head to bed soon... had a long day and I'm quite tired.
Take care, my readers...
