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.

>Its statistics.

No, it's just arithmetic. Stats is concerned with how likely and how often defaults may occur, not the overall gain or loss as a result.

>Perhaps because you aren't very bright?

Don't be a dick unless you are absolutely sure you are right. Even then, don't be a dick.

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

Tools->Options->Keyboard:

* 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.
