I have nothing to add but to say that you are all sorts of awesome in my book. My story is similar: sharp cookie, dropped out of high school to pursue women then eventually programming (aha, there was my mistake), blah blah, now I'm in my mid-30s finishing a math degree. Couldn't be happier. People like you inspire people like me.

The only problem in not having tabs is that it's an extra 2 keystrokes per line to //-comment out a block of code.


* In the "Show commands containing" find Edit.CommentSelection.
* Bind that command to something like Ctrl+/.
* Assign, OK
* Move caret to line you want to comment.
* Hit Ctrl+/.
* Enjoy life in a world cluttered by one less line of code.

This works whether you select a line or just move the caret to that line. It also works with several lines at a time.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
