But Valentine's day is good for laughing at people who don't know what their symbols really represent.

If you have ever seen a heart (human or animal, doesn't matter), you know darned well that a "heart-shape" isn't very heart shaped. But it does bear an amazing resemblance to a private piece of female anatomy. Care to guess what Cupid's "arrow" might have been originally?

Them durned pagans were a little direct, weren't they? :-)

    I don't know about that , I've always found the heart shape as it is known to look similar to the adrenal gland but only in some pictures.
    I can't believe it's not psellchecked

[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
[GotToBTru]: changing the font color of the rest of the document just because I typed a single quote character is annoying
