Geek Love

For those of you who still use vi/vim on the Windows platform, hang on to your hats. I know you're used to nothing ever changing, but there is, in fact, news. There's a new, less ugly user interface available for your old favorite text editor.

Yes, I know, user interfaces are superfluous. Yes, I know, you don't even know what those silly icons at the top of your vim window are for, and you can't even remember the last time you actually used one of the menus. Yet, I do have to recommend the upgrade. Check out the feature list. Macro recording! My God, we are marching boldly into the 1980s here, my friends. If you love vim, you should have a looksee. I'm taking it for a spin, myself.

Hi we’re the providers of the software program Video Game Design Pro which helps game designers create and manage their Video Game Design documents.
I was specifically contacting you because I think that your blog, and its readers, would be interested in learning about a solution like ours and its benefits on the game design and development community.
If you could please tell your readers about it, ask them to offer suggestions for improvement, or just simply link to our site so they could download a trial, it would be enormously appreciated because your blog seems to be extremely popular and it holds a lot of sway within the game development community.
Before heading directly to our site to learn more about VGDP, why don’t you check out this funny “commercial” that we put together. It’s actually a nice (30 second) introduction to our program and concludes with a link to our site.
I look forward to hearing back from you, thanks!

P.S. - When the movie concludes it directs you to our website where you can download a trial version of the program or learn more about it…conversely, you could just go straight there:
