@ParadeGrotesque I've never found their auto-suggestions to be better than anyone else (at least in the past when I've tried them...). And "reasonably powered machine" has usually meant "machine that neither I nor my employer has."

They're probably fine tools, but I don't have the hardware or patience for them.

@ParadeGrotesque I've always disliked JetBrains products. I've never understood the love for them as I've found them bloated, slow, unresponsive, and, quite frankly, inferior to alternatives. But people love them...

Episode 31 of the Jeff Reads His Book is posted! Henry and Margaux, two of our heroes in Offworlder, do absolutely nothing of note in this chapter. I still manage to produce discussion questions!

Episode 30 of the Jeff Reads His Book is out! Listen in as I read chapter 8 of Offworlder, a book I wrote in a month, and drink some delicious whiskey!

This week's notes for the Jeff Reads His Book . You know you're excited!

Episode 26 of the Jeff Reads His Book is now available! I slowly manage to actually read chapter 4 of Offworlder, a book I wrote in a month. I review a giant backlog of answers to earlier discussion questions. Henry shows off some magic skills in a not-so-impressive display. I find myself clearly disappointed by yet another chapter before creating some discussion questions. Listen today!

This marks the first time I have ever made it to Oregon. Freakin' Laura kept breaking her arm, but she survived.

@rolledgoats "self-published" author. I have no regrets, of course. I love these books!

@15F9 full TCL is already built on this VAX, so probably no need for JimTCL.

I like bash, but I'm sure KSH would be fine.

nvi is included with NetBSD, but that doesn't mean others won't demand vim. I don't like either, though, as I pointed out.

I'm not particularly interested in Gopher on this machine. I don't currently use Gopher to do my work on modern machines either.

Never seen retawq before, though, so I'll have to build it.

Episode 24 of the Jeff Reads His Book was just posted! I read Chapter 2 of Offworlder, a book I wrote in a month, from a tablet because Amazon can't get their freakin' act together. Enjoy some terrible writing and discussion questions today!

I have to power down my VAX to record my podcast because it's so loud...

Episode 23 of the Jeff Reads His Book is out now! We're starting a new book, Offworlder, which begins with some exciting employment forms! Discussion questions are included as always!

Updating my blog now on my DEC Rainbow. The static site generator usually takes an hour or so... If you have some free time, you too can use GW-BASIC to run your blog: bitbucket.org/ArmstrongJ/gwblo
