I can relate - using the hands works better than using the forehead.   :-D

Mainly because I'm a coding neanderthal stamping his hand on the cave wall, making pictures with his feces.

Oh, how far I've come.
Moved up to a poop brush.
Oh no.  I was describing my CURRENT skill level.  You don't -want- to know what I moved to that level from.

Se7en - thanks. I looked at the Vim web site, and I intend to give it my best when I get a few other "projects" under control.
Programming is a small percentage of my life, and it comes in fits, as my lovely wife allows.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;


Poe is a favourite here too.
Never express yourself more clearly than you are able to think.

No problem.

`Other friends have flown before - On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'

Unless you have *time* to devote to learning Vim (finishing the tutorial, reading the docs, etc.), dont. You will only fail.  Search the internet for "Cream Vim" and try it instead (if using Ubuntu use the package manager -- or whatever its called-) it will make the interface more like other editors.

However, I wish you all the luck if you decide to dive into Vim (As far as computers are concerned, learning Vim was one of the best things ive ever done). I will be here if you need any help.

^^ MEH!  Professors and their odd particularities and their odd taste for strange things.   :| :-D

Back to the topic at hand. **slightly related**
I just watched her video Lisp Part II and realize that those short lisp macroish lisp routines I still use today after all these years.
I + XI = X is true ...
... if you change your perspective.

I know just a little lisp but enough to know what nil is but if I did not,
those videos would leave wondering what are nils, why are nils are bad and why do they have them if you just want to get rid of them.

yeah, i was thinking the same thing Jeff (back on page one when she mentioned them in vid one). The videos are good to get new people over the hump of "where do i begin" but very soon after these short intro's they need to get their hands on a good book.

Interesting...I posed these questions, and was thrown to the pack.....
And yet here you are validating my position.
As I said she should have covered it since she brought it up.
I guess she is just a LISP Tease.
Be your Best

She has not shown us the most beautiful LISPs I've ever seen, that's for sure.  ;-)
