      THE SKY!!!!! IT'S FALLING!!!!!


      But no, they can still fuck right off, even basic editors nowadays have syntax highlighting, and writing anything more complex than a few dozen lines without that is a pain.

        Now for the weather report: Below freezing and continued snowfall. Icy road conditions. Chance of rain in the southernmost parts of hell otherwise thoroughly frozen over.

                just 100million more bugs and "features" to fix!

                By the way, also fix the BOM issue, where notepad adds the BOM character to the top of txt documents and break apps reading the file (like php). Exactly the same, new files it is OK to add the BOM, existent files, if no BOM found, do not add it!

                Adding invisible characters to files without being requested is plain evil!
