I'm a Perl coder living in Bethlehem, PA and working Philadelphia. I'm a philosopher and theologan by training, but I was shocked to learn upon my graduation that these skills don't have many associated careers. Now I write code.

javascript vi

[ #33418 ]

John Cappiello pointed me at this really pretty excellent vi-in-javascript thinger that lets you use an extremely vi-like interface to edit a textarea.

Here's what gets me, though. Look at the domain:

http://gpl.internetconnection.net/vi/

I mean, you can name your host whatever you want, but it's either a big coincidence or quite disingenuous:

This editor is a copyrighted application. If you want to use this editor in your own site, simply buy a web or email hosting account at http://internetconnection.net/ or call us at 888-xxx-yyyy

and:

/* no particular redistribution rights are granted; that means you do not have the right to use this on your own web site. this may change in the future. © 2006 Internet Connection */

Bah.

  • What exactly gets you again?

    * That our hosting company is called Internet connection, Inc?
    * That we have a server called gpl that, happens to have a lot of GPL software available on it?
    * That I uploaded something in-progress to one of my machines and posted a single comment on reddit?

    So what exactly gets you again?
    • What gets me is that it's non-free software hosted on a server called GPL. I see "GPL" and think "cool, it's going to be free," and then I see it is not, and then I'm disappointed.
