I have just realised that in my earlier comments about Brainstorm I was not in fact commenting about Brainstorm. The first time I looked into it when JBfrom started posting here and when I looked at his posts I assumed that his Cyborganize system and Org Mode and Emacs was Brainstorm. When I was looking at those links I just couldn’t get my head around it. But I have just downloaded Brainstorm from http://www.brainstormsw.com/ and that looks a lot more straightforward. So apologies and ignore anything I said about not understanding Brainstorm.

Emacs is basically the Grandview of text editors. The default version IS scary. But Ergoemacs preserves all your windows keybinds, which removes the difficulty. If you get DOS there’s nothing conceptually difficult, for basic word processing. As a distraction-free hyper-efficient ultra-portable fully-extensible composing environment, I wouldn’t use anything else. Writing in something like Notepad or Word feels like hopping on one leg. Especially with that stupid ribbon the new Word has.

I just got up and running on Windows ErgoEmacs because i need to use it with CT. EE really saves a ton of time. Very impressive program.

I have my text files synced up in Dropbox. So I can pop things open on the Windows laptop on the road, or at home on the desktop workhorse. Thing of beauty.

Now I can finally start rewriting all my confusing Wordpress-borked T1 content into CT. But I’m putting another secret internet project ahead of Cyborganize, because the community’s a lot more receptive on that unrelated topic. Demand is king…
