Seems like that would shoot the shit out of being able to read at any decent speed. You probably don't notice it (yet) because your ability to read is still so poor that you don't notice the extra second or so that it takes you to figure out what's written.
You essentially cut your reading speed down below that at which you can "speak". It's a very similar problem as to why it's so painful to input Chinese with a Roman keyboard. You have to figure out what tone it is, then you get a chooser to pick between all of the (sometimes lengthy list of) homophones. The homophone-space is incredibly small given the huge semantic space of the (any) language.
I don't always ASCII, but when I do, I emacs -- because it's the most interesting editor in the world. Stay meta, my friends.
People are entitled to favor "vi' if they'd like, because some people choose to be wrong, and that's their choice.
What's to learn in "vi/vim" -- ooooh, you can make a keyboard macro. From Emacs you can pwn the world, hello!
Emacs is the original IDE -- of any consequence (errr, excepting perhaps Smalltalk, which never landed very many seats, sadly).
Now get that meat off of my cyberlawn!
Probably after trying to reset the date to 24 hours earlier. Setting the time backwards can do wonders for a system.
At the same time, if I were being loaded into an ambulance by police, in the midst of a violent mental health breakdown, I would really appreciate it if the police stopped people from filming me. That's not something you want out spread around the internet.
So, basically, you're all for truth and justice, except when it's inconvenient for you.
Wow. Does anyone listen to themselves anymore?
