For some reason I doubt we will ever see the source to the site. It kind of gives an un-easy feeling knowing that a pro-open source site won't open its own source.
Better then vi
I have been using it for close to a year now with no complaints. I was using vi, but, for programming that became a serious pain in the ass. I do a lot of programing on an old P-90 laptop using only the console. I tried emacs and gave up in 10 minutes.
I am upset to see that this is not being updated anymore. There are a few issues the be resolved. Searching and replace has a problem when you use certian combantions. I can't post them here becuase there HTML tags. There is also a problem is you go through the menu too quickly. I have crashed it like 20 times doing it. I have since learned to slow down.
The spell checking is a little odd also. I think this could have been done a little better.
Outside of that this is a nice little program and I will be using it for years to come.
