I write mine on a tiny windows laptop and ftp them to a huge server over a cable modem. So I'm editing with a windows text-processor. For a long time I used editpad
and now I use editplus
. I ftp with webdrive
which gives me the illusion that all that amazing space on the server is on my dainty laptop - though editplus has pretty good ftp too. I work in different places, and wherever I am I use whatever they've got there. Why? Because for reasons of history, and because it's easier, I am on the thin client / fat server model, so I've never had occasion to learn the nix editors - though I could get them via SSH now I suppose - but then, also I work on different computers which always have a text editor and some kind of ftp, but not always SSH. And I like the colours I get with editplus.
