    I use pico to edit blosxom entries and write mail (since it's the editor behind PINE). I like it much better for creating paragraphs and sentences and such.

    If I'm editing at a terminal for anything else, it's a vi variant.

    For some stuff for The Perl Review, I use TextEdit because I need RTF, and I only need to write a screenful.

    But what I really use is BBEdit.

    What I really don't use is emacs. Randal does everything in emacs and constantly talks about how he'd like to dump Mac OS X and let emacs do everything. Okay, maybe he doesn't say that, but I know he's thinking it.

      Well, Emacs is a nice [and we all know how the rest goes].

      Makeshifts last the longest.

    if you take pico to colorado and colorado to las palmas.. that's how you get to "llama" school... fairly prophetic i think.
