IDEs With VIM Text Editing Capability? 193

Posted by timothy
from the one-keybinding-to-rule-them-all dept.
An anonymous reader writes "I am currently looking to move from text editing with vim to a full fledged IDE with gdb integration, integrated command line, etc. Extending VIM with these capabilities is a mortal sin, so I am looking for a linux based GUI IDE. I do not want to give up the efficient text editing capabilities of VIM though. How do I have my cake and eat it too?"

Earmuffs that actually block out most sound aren't very comfortable. I got a pair of these "http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productNumber=214443" thinking that I could wear them all day while my coworkers argued next to me. While they did a pretty good job of blocking out my coworkers, I found them uncomfortable after more than 10 minutes. They need a good seal to really kill the sound, so loosening them really isn't an option.

Scientist Forced To Remove Earthquake Prediction 485

Hugh Pickens writes to mention that Italian scientist Giampaolo Giuliani, a researcher at the National Physical Laboratory of Gran Sasso, recently gave warning about an earthquake that was to happen on March 29th of this year near L'Aquilla. Based on radon gas emissions and a series of observed tremors he tried to convince residents to evacuate, drawing much criticism from the city's mayor and others. Giuliani was forced to take down warnings he had posted on the internet. The researcher had said that a 'disastrous' earthquake would strike on March 29, but when it didn't, Guido Bertolaso, head of Italy's Civil Protection Agency, last week officially denounced Giuliani in court for false alarm. 'These imbeciles enjoy spreading false news,' Bertalaso was quoted as saying. 'Everyone knows that you can't predict earthquakes.' Giuliani, it turns out, was partially right. A much smaller seismic shift struck on the day he said it would, with the truly disastrous one arriving just one week later. 'Someone owes me an apology,' said Giuliani, who is also a resident of L'Aquila. 'The situation here is dramatic. I am devastated, but also angry.'"

I can't speak for your sister and her child's reason for excluding sea creatures from their vegetarianism, but for me pescatarianism is a stepping stone to vegetarianism. I wouldn't be able to become a full vegetarian by going cold turkey :P. So, I'm currently eating fish and crustaceans on a limited basis until I'm ready to do without any meat.

Feel free to call me a "giant hypocrite" or whatever you want, but for me becoming a vegetarian is a major lifestyle change that has significant psychological, cultural, and dietary challenges and it isn't going to happen without approaching the problem intelligently.

Gamer Plays Over 30 Warcraft Characters 189

If your significant other complains that you play too much World of Warcraft, just show them this article about a user named "Prepared." He plays an amazing 36 World of Warcraft accounts on 11 different computers at the same time. He is his own raid group. "It costs me exactly $5711 in subscription costs per year with 36 accounts on the 6 month pay schedule," he writes. "Not bad considering I'm looking at it like it's a hobby and there are more expensive hobbies out there than World of Warcraft."
