maybe people asking how to quit vim aren’t asking how to quit vim the application but how to quit the need to have vim editing in every text editor like an addiction

@honza yeah absolutely a 100%. It's what made me abandon it for anything I wanted to use it for (though I might still salvage EDN as a data storage/interchange/DSL format).

the fact that “katana”, usually referring to a really specific kind of sword, actually just means “sword” if you translate it is really funny somehow

@cpsdqs yea but no one speaks Latin so it's fine to treat it as proper name :-).

@cpsdqs the name is Luna. But no one except for poets and some scientists really uses it.

@deshipu Yeah! I'm so excited but also not sure I want to actually play it now.

Also, I suspect every country has racism, just maybe showing up in different ways. We (Czechia) have loads, but it's very different from the USA's.

@deshipu I was thinking the same thing yesterday. Of course they all have the right overall shape, but somehow they're getting closer and closer with the details too.

@temporal @deshipu done exactly that a decade ago. Still finding myself in vim about once a week.

@cpsdqs i.e. how long until the real year of the linux desktop

Great summary of the two dominant RPG dialog approaches ("every word" / "summary").

I grew up on and <3 the former, but this brings up great points on both sides. Especially around exposition and not having to do the old amnesiac/foreigner workaround.


@cpsdqs haha sorry yea. Wishing you a quick recovery BTW. Stay safe out there!
