    @doctorlinguist an excellent design decision was to let me (user) simply use readline history to go back to original posts instead of having to each time look up what the new menu code option should be. This is great in insolent mode.

      Also, I hope to be transparent during build process...sometimes in excruciating detail each step along the way. That and I want people to freely use what I create, add to it, suggest, etc. Otherwise unfollow is an option if it's too much.

        Verify has been set to off, adding Texapp to my Vim spell check as a valid word, and finally :abbr texapp Texapp :abbr textapp Texapp Life is good on this farm... ;)

          Now where is that word count script I had written, much earlier, so my vim status bar tells me how many words I already typed into Texapp without having to quit the editor.

            So I see a benefit to using Texapp v/s Alpha. Sure Alpha renders nicely but since I am a vim user...editing in vim is much easier...also I found using /a +1 0xmf a nice way to get the last thread id so I can thread my posts with Texapp.

              @jnm along those lines, but I want something more flexible (I confess never to having used storify, but I've seen it often used in blog posts).

                Odd, I'm noticing spike in load average with Texapp running in the background, as if it's waiting to do something and being blocked. Ah! Good, reduced back down from 0.90 to 0.36 and dropping...

                  Be nice if posts were markup, else ninja processing needed to create markup. HOWTO join posts across threads...or stitch together isolated ones. Only way seems to be extract posts from one table, group and join, and insert into another table.

                    My idea for my app, which will be written in Go, is: - grab posts for a user - save those posts to sqlite db - create markup content by threading together

                      @jnm awesome, thank you very much! many of those settings I use too :)

                        @redqueencoder you write such picturesque posts...also...it's ok if you change your mind, later, about something you said here...no 'nice' person will hold against you, otherwise you can do what connery [github.com] did today (see last convo and last line, lol)

                          It is, however, clunky reading markup like that when it is not rendered correctly....hmm... I need to think about how I'll manage this.

                            Ah! Too bad, it doesn't I'm gonna need a workaround....but anyway...I'm using Texapp to hold my AsciiDoc posts. Henceforth, my posts will be in AsciiDoc formatted...meaning they'll be ready for future consumption with my tool I'm building using Go.

                              Happy because hot-fixed Texapp to behave exactly like I want. Pushed [.vimrc](https://github.com/0xMF/.vim/commit/0b0c1b2b9ab6b82afa9423fb5db29183eb459e59) might help if using Texapp+vim Now, does Texapp support URL markup. Heh! Only one way to find out

                                @gtwilson yeah, me too...but I suspect money was their biggest reason...this way they recover some of the money they've put in.. @thrrgilag Mind you, could be wrong but I remember some reviewers talking about this a month or so back at their Spain launch

                                    @thrrgilag that deskop mode has been put off (for now)...at least that is what I think I read in passing. The big feature is web apps and a slick interface (supposedly).

                                        Despite what people say, I do like Ubuntu. I also might likely buy an Ubuntu phone (my first smartphone and keyword there is might) but I'm sorry I could not get past them calling Shuttleworth Ubuntu's spiritual leader [arstechnica.com]. Much yearn a for Jobs-esque figure?
