Mainly for Charlie

Quoted from this post on Wil Wheaton's blog, edited slightly for content.
Most of all, though, I've been blessed by the incredible generosity of people who had no reason to help and guide me, but did anyway: John Scalzi and Warren Ellis are two who you'd recognize, and the rest of the list could fill a 2 gig flash drive in a single-spaced text file. That I wrote in vi because I couldn't find the text editor in emacs. ...that joke never gets old.

Yeah, the only thing wrong with Emacs as an operating system is its text editor.

The joke I think never gets old is "vi is that editor with two modes: one that beeps and one that corrupts your files."

Heh, heh. That's a good one, too.
