And the winner is…UltraEdit.
Found a registered copy in a location which shall remain unnamed (*coughworkcough*). And, as a techie, by definition my job requires me to…uh…evaluate the software my customers might utilize.
Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket.
S’long, Semware. $99 is a weeeeeeeee bit too much to pay for a glorified DOS text editor.

For the last five years or so, all we’ve heard from the Demoscum is about how President Bush is supposedly a moron. And all last year, all we heard about John-boy F’n Qetchup-ass was how intelligent he was, didn’t we?
So just imagine the chagrin of the Jackasses when this report was made public:
Newly released Navy records of Sen. John Kerry show the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, who was portrayed as the intellectual superior of President Bush, actually received a lower academic average than his rival while studying at Yale, including five Ds.
The transcript of grades, which Kerry has always declined to release, was part of a set of Naval records requested and finally received by the Boston Globe. Last month, Kerry gave the Navy permission to release the records to the paper, something he refused to do during last fall’s campaign.
And now we know why, don’t we? Imagine what that Navy report’s gonna look like. (snicker)
Bush received a cumulative score of 77 for his first three years at Yale and a roughly similar average under a non-numerical rating system during his senior year. Kerry, who graduated two years before Bush, received a cumulative score of 76 for his four years. Those grades include four Ds in his freshman year and one in his sophomore year.
Bush received one D in his four years at Yale, scoring a 69 in astronomy. The president has described himself as a C student in college.
Well, Botox Boy, there’s one area in which you beat W. (cackle)
According to the Globe, the military and medical records released appear identical to what Kerry has already released, but this marks the first time Kerry’s grades have been publicly reported.
The transcript shows that Kerry’s freshman-year average was 71, or a low C. He scored a 61 in geology, a 63 and 68 in two history classes, and a 69 in political science. His top score was a 79, in another political science course. Another of his strongest efforts, a 77, came in French class. His highest single grade was an 89, for a political science class in his senior year.
Under Yale’s grading system in effect at the time, grades between 90 and 100 equaled an A, 80-89 a B, 70-79 a C, 60 to 69 a D, and anything below that was a failing grade.
A 63 and a 68 in history??? This is the same guy who deigned to tell us back in the seventies how US troops acted in a way “reminiscent of Jenjis Khan (a little Qerry phoneticism, there)??? Does anyone wonder now how it was he mispronounced Genghis??? He couldn’t even pronounce it right – how could the bozo know what Khan did, much less been able to compare it to what our troops supposedly did?
