Roleplaying Editors and Dreams
VIM is really feeling like an RPG to me. Today I just gained a level, maybe two, thanks to SuperTab and Tip #173. Who knows, maybe I'll even be giving up the cursor keys soon and my original HHKB, sans-inverted-T, will make more sense.
Speaking of RPGs: Last night, I had a hyper-realistic dream that some college roommates, who'd started a LARP of their own design back in the mid-90s, had gotten back together to start a new authorized LARP based on World of Warcraft.
It was $1400 per month to play--which seemed reasonable at the time--and took place 24/7 on the grounds of the Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly. Strangely, this was within walking distance of our old townhouse in Royal Oak. I jumped into the game to play some kind of "wind mage", dressed up like a 3-foot-tall leprechaun. (Yes, somehow my costume reduced my height by 3 feet or so.)
There's no real point to this, other than I felt I needed to share its utter depths of nerdity. Oh, and although I've watched someone play WoW, I don't actually have a machine capable of running it--so I don't even know if it features leprechaun wind mages.
