Either that, or the 4 is the "random" number *grin*

emacs? You wuss! Next you'll be using (gasp) Xemacs!

I've found VIM to be a great transition suggestion for emacs junkies!

I haven't actually used emacs in years. Now I'm even more of a wuss and use an auto-completing IDE for all my file editing...

Nothing like type "F-O-R Cntl-Space" and getting a complete for loop with tokens in place for all the variables and customized nesting.

Follow along on your calculator:

142 Saudis (press 142) and 154 Iraqis (press 154) fought over 69 square miles of desert (press 69) (press multiply) for 5 long days (press 5).

What were they fighting over?? (press = and turn your calculator upside down).




My calculator is in my computer - my monitor is too heavy to turn upside down!
