Comment Plastic Logic (Score 2, Interesting) 247

I'm hoping the E-reader from Plastic Logic ( ) will be a great improvement. Its display is said to be A4-sized, which would give it a diagonal of a little over 14". The biggest problem with most readers still seems to be the software, though. Either it's chock-full of DRM, or it's seriously lacking in features. Hopefully this one'll be different.

Comment Re:NEdit (Score 1) 1131

nedit rocks! Unfortunately I do my work almost exclusively in Windows nowadays, and running it in Cygwin feels clunky at best. What I love and miss most about nedit is the command-line filter: You highlight a few lines, hit Ctrl-R, and enter a shell phrase. The highlighted text becomes the standard input for the command, and is replaced with the command's stdout. Plain and simple. I can then use any and all command-line tools and shell scripts to process my code. I know vim does this too, but the visual mode feels a tad clunky to me. nedit just made it so easy. I wish more editors supported that feature so elegantly.
