Some men grow quite intimate with their text editor, and the thing is
right now she must be feeling insulted. Apparently, this middle-aged
lady's sensitive as hell and hasn't been out of the house in decades.
Careful, Mick, because the old hackers from way back she counts as
suitors like showing their teeth in a proprietary, protective reflex (if
they have any left).

Mind you, I'd give the dame a whirl myself (I'm currently stuck in a
rudimentary kind of liaison with Vim), but she wants eleven other
relations to move in with her!

and logical story, so that when one matter is despatched--love for instance--
we go on, in an orderly manner, to the next.” - Virginia Woolf, The Waves
