Well the Quake 3 engine is most definitely cross platform, and is being ported to many architectures (as seen by the ioquake3 posts here), but I think the real battle id is facing is not getting the engine itself running, but getting it to run inside the target web browsers. As far as I can tell each browser platform does this in a slightly different way, and I think there are already separate builds for IE and Firefox on Windows to accommodate this.

I'm not an Emacs user, however I have lately tried to use it a little and become more comfortable with it. One thing I think is really cool is being able to do M-x make-frame-on-display and then have a new frame appearing on a display (obviously). This is pretty useful for collaborative editing more than anything. I wish such a feature existed in Vi/Vim :(

by Maexxus (#25667523) Attached to: (Useful) Stupid Vim Tricks?

Very basic commands, but the ones I use the most are:
o - Open a new line in insert mode
cw - Delete word and enter insert mode (change word)
dw - Delete word
d$/c$ - Delete/Change to end of line
dd - Delete Line and Yank
yy - Yank Line
p - Paste

These simple commands alone make Vi/Vim very fast for editing.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.

Working...
