Geek humor

Huh.  I hadn't known that "EMACS" stands for that.

Heh.

"Eight megs and constantly swapping" is intrinsically dated, and that was obvious even in days of yore, when an 8M image triggering swapping by itself wasn't yet utterly insane, and when emacs might plausibly have fit into 8M.

On the other hand, "escape meta alt control shift" seems to be _permanently_ a good description.

Viva vi! Vi forever! :)

Yeah, I thought it was 'escape meta alt control shift' too. It's not just a text editor, it's a lifestyle.

Not for me, though. I woke up one morning, couldn't feel my left pinky, switched to vi, and haven't looked back. When I'm feeling all 21st-centuryish, I use vim.
