fwiw, I (and most of my development team) use vim as well.

Eclipse-***** here. It may be bloaty, but it lets me easily work on multi-language projects at the same time, and there's a plugin for everything except for Tetris

i love eclipse, i don't get to use it often enough. though i still think VS beats it on the debugging front.

i can't believe there's no tetris plugin view!! hmm...the first BF OSS project?..

That it does, but not for Python and Java .

As a winter project I'm actually planning on writing a Golden Cheetah plugin to do virtual courses, CompuTrainer/TacX style, and possibly have racing. PM me if you're interested!

I think it has to do with the refresh rate, so everything seems jittery when looking around quickly (which happens a lot in this game, lots of time spent looking around for stuff to scavenge).
I'll take it. Lol.

sounds fun. if i find the time though, i was thinking of a telemetry overlay project ala the rides video thread/dashware. i know a couple of other people have written similar apps, but i haven't seen them open the source up yet.

on a more general geekiness level - anyone else addicted to scrabb.ly? i keep trying to quit, but it makes a really great short-term distraction. e.g. if i'm waiting for some code to build and don't feel like answering emails, flip to scrabb.ly and knock out a couple of words, done.

C++0x is on my list of languages to learn, but my heart and paycheck lies with dynamic languages for the time being.

Could definitely be an interesting project. My reasons for wanting to do the virtual course thing is that I'm rather selfish and during the winter it rains something like 90% of the time in Denmark, forcing me onto the trainer. $40 on an ANT+ USB Stick and a speed sensor could alleviate some of the boredom. I'll probably end up to lazy to do it, in which case I'm just going to hook up quarqd to some pipes and force it to pause VLC when I stop pedaling

One person has already tried to derail my GPA with Scrabulous, don't think you'll draw me in!

Just finished a huge code review for a pet project of mine, another few rounds of testing and then I'll launch it to the public. If it gains half the traction elsewhere that it has at my school I'm hoping it might even score a bit of media coverage.

I'm also about to submit my application to MIT, and if that doesn't qualify as geeky, I don't know what does.

vi or vim. But I'm an admin. My programing consists of sub 1,000 line scripts. Most are sub 100 lines.

it's refreshing to hear of people doing voluntary code reviews.

good luck!

We (large online brokerage) are a vi environment. From operations to systems|database|network engineering, I don't know anyone that uses anything other then vi.

I'll bow out of the emacs vs vi "wars". Whatever. They are both pretty straightforward and easy to use.

I'm just glad that I don't have to do anything in Interleaf anymore. Using that to write technical papers with colleagues way back in the day that had DEC VAX machines and just had to do EVERY freakin' thing in Interleaf gave me a huge headache.

I successfully made 1 byte of memory in my electronics lab out of op-amp transistors with positive feedback.

Maybe this means I will be able to understand all of the digital and computing lingo in this thread soon. Probably not.

Were these organometalic op-amp transistors?

yeah, it's possible. Probably more expensive than it's worth. You couldn't make it jam-proof really. Anyone nearby with a really strong transmitter could always jam it, if they used the right frequency. You could make it really hard to jam, but never impossible.

The hacked part is much simpler. Just code each transmitter/receiver pair to each other using a semi-secure protocol.

I've brought emacs around with me everywhere. I really enjoy elisp customizations. I made 1-player Mancala one time, but ended up losing it in my school crap.

My .exrc/.vimrc has come with me to about 8 different companies, along with a whole set of tools. But it's always been on some flavor of unix.

Modbus, now you're talking my language. If it's ancient and used in SCADA, I probably know something about it.

My main language is DNP3, but I've got some Modbus, some Landis&Gyr, some other ancient RTU proprietary protocols. I'm not yet at the point where I can interpret DNP3 hex in real time, but I know a guy who can.

You should come work out here in the silicon forest - we do code reviews just about daily, as every checkin gets looked at. Then again I suppose that's not voluntary... but personally I love doing them, it's a great time to find bugs.

I used vi a lot in my college days, never understood why emacs was so popular, or why people cared what editor you use.

These days I use Visual Studio since I'm writing C#, and am addicted to the Intellisense feature (where symbol names just pop right up as you type).
