I have been using the service, although not to such a level that this would be a real problem for me. But then again, you shouldn't rely on free services, should you?

28  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Plea for help from programmer and blogger Xah Lee on: May 16, 2014, 02:38:10 PM
Programmer and blogger Xah Lee who runs the ergoemacs.org web site posted a disturbing plea for help today

http://ergoemacs.org/misc/xah_as_good_as_dead.html

He's financially ruined, living from noodles and oats, close to homelessness.

I've been following his blog mainly because of his excellent information and reviews about ergonomic keyboards.

I have to admit I fail to understand how he managed to live in a place that cost him $1600 a month without having a job for years (if I understood that right).

That's interesting -- I wonder what is causing the horrible red/blue fringing on vertical edges on my setup Sad.

Jibz, your screenshots remind me of ClearType colouring/anti-aliasing.  Perhaps that's what is causing it?  For the record, I can't STAND ClearType at all; it always looks fuzzy and out-of-focus to me.

That reminds me of: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KZ6mIsbDc4

Maybe we need a text-editors-only sub-forum Wink

And here one from me, both with Consolas and Monokai Themes (although these differ for the two editors as is obvious):

Same conclusion as Shades.

Textadept has moved on since the review as it seems. 7.2 which I'm running right now has tabs for example.
33  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: TextAdept: Lua-extensible Editor on: May 11, 2014, 03:45:29 AM
Found a pros/cons review comparing Textadept with Sublime/VIM/Emacs here:

http://yfl.bahmanm.com/Me...-reviews/textadept-review

Current version is 7.2 by the way.

I don't know why, but I really enjoy reading about why people choose the text editors they use.
 Wink

I think it has partly to do with the fact that it's just a text editor, lol.  It's supposed to be this very plain thing, yet there are so many complex options and features, etc. to consider and we get all passionate about them.  Same goes for other software, I suppose, but I really have fun with the text editors.

I think it's also due to the fact that editing text is one of a few key activities in many professions (at least of DC people). It's also one where it seems to be very apparent how it could be improved (although the specifics seem to be quite individual).

The one improvement important to me would be efficient navigation and selection within text. Home/End and Ctrl+Left/Right just doesn't cut it. It's also the main reason why I'm experimenting with VIM again.

I've read an interesting rant about text editors in general here and specifically about atom here yesterday, which makes some valid points to think about (it's in German, but I'm sure google translate can handle it). It made me check out the textadept web site which ewemoa had alread posted about but I had forgotten. After what I have read so far about atom I think checking out textadept or lime (a Sublime clone) would currently be a better time investment for me than trying to build atom (which I still haven't succeeded with).

Funny and sad at the same time!

Indeed. It seems like using git not only serves the purpose of versioning your files, but also to excercise your brain.

Just stumbled over what seems to be a very nice git book/tutorial available for free online.

Found this one

Supposed to run on Android and Desktop (it's Java after all), which could be interesting. Did not try it yet though.

While the topic of this thread perhaps slightly misrepresents the scope of the article ...

Yes, sorry about that. Fixed.
43  Main Area and Open Discussion / Non-Windows Software / Re: Android: Note-taking App with Encryption, Source Code, ... ? on: May 07, 2014, 05:00:20 AM
Encryption is the important part here: it means that all your notes (or information to make it more general) are encrypted and decrypted directly on your devices (aka client side encryption).

WorkFlowy doesn't seem to do that.

Thanks for this list ewemoa, will have a look. Looking for something like this is on my todo list as well. Although I'd like to have something for both Android and iOS and it should sync to dropbox (which seems to be the de-facto standard cloud service on iOS). Markdown capability would be a plus.

0.14 should fix both those problems. Hope it works for you now!

I guess I'm not all that sure what the argument is for using Vim in the Windows world - if Windows is the only OS you ever anticipate using.

...

Vim certainly wouldn't be my first choice if I needed an editor. Nor my second. Or even my third...

I'm afraid I have come to the same conclusion. I've uninstalled VIM on the same day I started this AVE Sad

What I have done instead is to install VsVim in Visual Studio and Vintageous in Sublime Text 3 to make this a two step process:

1. Learn vi commands in an environment which is familiar (and fully configured)
2. Look into VIM configuration at a later time, after I have learned using VIM (well, the editing parts of it anyway)

I have since found that VsVim is superior to Vintageous (which itself is superior to Sublime's own Vintage mode). But both are actually quite usable.

The one cheat sheet I've consulted most often was this one: http://www.fprintf.net/vimCheatSheet.html
although I've started my own with the commands I use most (so I can look them up faster).

I'm using C# string.Split() which doesn't offer ignoring case

How does the following look?

  http://stackoverflow.com/a/1436101

Thanks for the suggestion Thmbsup

I think it would be a good option except that it might be annoying when trying to split with a string which is a regex but you want it to be taken literally (well, not a problem if you know about regexes).

I think the most needed feature would currently be storing parameters between sessions and when changing between individual text manipulations.

That was a note to self by the way.
