Thanks for sharing Peter!

One question for you, what badge do you have selected on your profile, isn't that Vim? Agh right, I don't think we have Emacs, so you chose a better one Yet another endless war emacs vs vim...

Oh I'm a vim user and have been for too long.  Started with it way back in 87 as it was a lot more useful than the then alternative ed.  The thing about vi is that it's nearly always installed on any linux/unix machine.    

Never really got into emacs but often worked with folks who rate it, and well you can switch emacs into vi mode (and also IntelJ).      
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
