vi is much simpler than, say, Emacs, but very powerful. I don't have all the commands memorized, so I keep a vi command chart handy. But to implement all the vi commands in 512 bytes would be too hard, so I'll probably only do some of them, or maybe I'll make a line editor like ed.

As for the game, it probably won't be anything special. I might make something like Snakes, as that is a game close to my heart, or something completely new. I might even make something in text mode, maybe a roguelike... I've never written a game before, so this will be a new experience. But since I have only 512 bytes, even if I come up with a bunch of crap, I won't care since it's not intended to be a real game.

In addition to Applications, I'll also be entering in the Games category. Smile

Btw, do we have any prizes for the winners? I'm just wondering if MCD would be kind enough to donate a couple of PLASTIC BAGS ... Laughing

I was thinking about a amazon book token that could be use to order a book of a certain value from your nearest amazon, but 1. i do not know if they do that ? and 2.
most people thought it may take the fun out of the compo.

So we droped the prize, so your prize if you win, is being the BEST! Cool .
