re Seems a little heavy...
Authored by: surfingmarmot on Feb 02, '05 11:55:32PM

Heavy as a black hole but sometimes that's what 'hacking' is about: doing cool, intricate things just 'because you can' and not because that's the 'best' way to accomplish it. Larry Wall's Perl manifesto sums it up "there's more than one way to do it". However your point is well-taken and your suggestion simple, elegant, and flexible. Now that my interest is piqued, I am going to implement your suggestion. Man! OS X is the perfect blend of interface elegance and UNX power. Windows seems so dull and unimaginative in comparison--the tool of bankers and drones. ;-)
