Ahhaaha! Gotta love some of your off the cuff comments man (edit: you got me doing them now lol).
But yeah, I'm sure you'd do a damn good job getting close.

>>> It would be fairer to say that everyone was given a big pile of wood and a hammer. Jon just had the brains to build the house.

The other guys were off building boats and bridges is the point.

Anyway, I'm done talking about stupid forests... Back to building [spoiler]SMART Snippets[/spoiler]
@castles: instead of talking about trees and hammers, answer your messages and teach me bout custom binding contexts.


Just use the source :)

Nah, I'm more upset I can't fix the leak in the roof. Damn rentals!

I've got 99 problems but the source of my favorite software ain't one.

The thread starter has ignored that GNU Emacs has been breaking the GPL for a while...

BTW, vi has not been developed for about 33 years now and is still used. What does that say about "death"?
