text editors and word manglers

“The last time somebody said, ‘I find I can write much better with a word processor.’, I replied, ‘They used to say the same thing about drugs.’

I honestly don’t remember what the first BBS I joined was, though it was probably something like Allentown Tech or The Nucleus, both of which were boring-but-dependable local boards. I probably had to use my real name on whatever it was. Eventually, of course, I found out about boards that focused less on PD software and HAM radio, and more on 0-day warez and post/call ratios. A handle was required. Now, I’m not sure about all the handles I used, or their order, but I’ll try and reconstruct the history as best I can.

For over a year now, I’ve been working at the same job. It’s a pretty good job. I make enough to pay the bills and still have spending money, I’m doing something I generally enjoy, and I don’t have much of a commute. My job title is ‘Information Technology Developer.’ I do a lot of different things, but my core duties revolve around writing software. As someone who deals daily with writing, implementing, and modifying software, I have some opinions on the subject.
