Nice work.

Now, back to the discussion of the technicalities of the diagram :-)

What program did you use to draw it? I've just discovered emacs artist mode a few weeks ago and it's quite nice, but it appears to only do basic ASCII drawings.

    What program did you use to draw it?

    Vim, with the help of The Unicode Sliderule, and copy/pasting. I used the same thing, plus regexes, to change the thick lines to thin lines.

    I first modelled it on paper, then in Inkscape. It started out as a rather complex diagram, but the end result is, as you can see, quite simple and comprehensible.

    Update: your post inspired me to look for tools that can help, and I found this nifty Vim script: http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=173
