Yeah...that found it...thanks! Eric Thats the link to put into eclipse I do believe and Denny, its good to know others put their feet in their mouth too! ~Dave the disruptor~ > > Hi Denny, > > I guess us commercial, non-power CF'ers with the wrong mindset will > just stick with other tools then. Hey Dave, Snake & Ferg, how does it > feel to be part of "commercial, non-power CF'ers, designers/coder > wannabes with the wrong mindset" group? I'm feeling pretty damn good. > > Rey... Yes, Rey, that's what I meant. That's why I qualify WIS so much. :P~ Seriously tho, Hey Vinne, Hugo, and Desmond, how do you like waffles? I'm eating some right now, they're good(tm). :-)) Didn't mean to come off so harsh on the folks who are happy where they are, man. It's good to be happy, and that's what really matters. I would FAR prefer you to use a tool you are happy using than to switch to one *I* use that doesn't make you happy. And you like to let people know when you're not happy, so PLEASE don't start using CFE. You, a fellow user, being unhappy would make me unhappy. Just wait till you HAVE to switch, and I'll bet you'll be MUCH happier. Seriously, by then, things will be smoother, and there will be less to find dislike with. You'll feel more comfortable, more HS-like stuff will be there for you. Ferg, I probably did misread you, I'm usually only partly in this universe, so it shows. My main point was how swell open source is, with the proper mind-set. See, with open source, there is no room to complain, because YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF. If you don't like X, or want Y, YOU CAN DO IT! YES! No waiting for some other person to get off their ass! At least it's never forced, as in you are NEVER forced to wait for something, or get enough support behind an idea to have it come to fruition. You can do it! But that concept is one that a lot of folks don't seem to get, and I think I don't get it either, so no biggie. As for the util for converting snippits, take a look at the mailing archive, there's some info in there, IIR. I did not mean to make anyone feel bad about preferring some way over another. It's a free world, diversity is GOOD, and I still get a kick out of that story about the programmer and the drum - greatness doesn't come from the tool, man. So, sorry for being an asshole, I'm really nice, but put my foot in my mouth quite a bit. I can see how my comments can be read many ways - I'm trying a little to be more like Churchill, but failing pretty bad. Ahhh... Someday... *sigh* There is a good saying about doing what you want so long as it doesn't hurt others, or some such - which I like, but find hard to live by. Sorry for knocking anyone, or anyone's choices. Didn't mean to. If anything, it's myself who needs to get with the program... funny how life is. But Oh that waffle was good!
