Here is a Pico story for ya. Years ago, on an SGI IRIX machine, the version of Pico on there had a nasty habit of truncating lines. I had a script that ran off of a data file we selected special out of a DB. The select was done at a particular time and then the DB moved on. The last field was a number and each line was about 255 characters wide. With the return on the end, the line was 1 chracter too long so it chopped one digit off the end of every integer and put the return back on. OUCH! That is a high price to pay for quickly fixing the spelling of someone's name

It also took the else {} chunk off of a giant long line once but I pretty much blame that on the author not the editor. =)

    [james28909]: everything past the first two things you piked from my posts are irrelevant to me and my beliefs. they are side effects.
    [james28909]: two or three. if it has to do with how humans are handling said situations, then that is after they were able to evolve into those problems. agnostic means only believe with evidence. i took that from a tyson video
    [james28909]: and it seems that racism suggest that there is indeed a better race, but that is for evolution to decide
    [1nickt]: "right now, humans are smarter than in any of those times": define "smart"
    [erix]: ah, now you're appraoch downvote-territory ;)
