look on the bright side,
instead of only repeating your own messages by repeating others' you'll have a lot more "new" material.
Cheer up, OG. You know what they say. Some things in life are bad. They can really make you mad. Other things just make you swear and curse. When you're chewing on life's gristle, Don't grumble. Give a whistle. And this'll help things turn out for the best. And...
Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown,
And things seem hard or tough,
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft,
And you feel that you've had quite eno-o-o-o-o-ough,
Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at 900 miles an hour.
It's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned,
The sun that is the source of all our power.
Now the sun, and you and me, and all the stars that we can see,
Are moving at a million miles a day,
In the outer spiral arm, at 40, 000 miles an hour,
Of a galaxy we call the Milky Way.
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars;
It's a hundred thousand light-years side to side;
It bulges in the middle sixteen thousand light-years thick,
But out by us it's just three thousand light-years wide.
We're thirty thousand light-years from Galactic Central Point,
We go 'round every two hundred million years;
And our galaxy itself is one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.
Our universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
In all of the directions it can whiz;
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

the part I dislike is when (during debugging):
move around in the source (no prob)
copy some source (highlight, ^C) (no prob)
move to where you want to paste [or just start to type in some code],
^V (or start typing)
up pops 'changes not allowed ... do you want to stop debugging?'
OK, fine, fair enough, I can accept that's the rule,
so click the 'yes: please stop the debugging session'
-> cursor returns to the code where you attempted the paste/typing,
^V / type
where the hell is the focus, it's not [as expected] in the code where it was before the popup popped up?
yes the popup I can begrudgingly accept, yes my mistake, sorry, sorry, 1000 apologies
... but why is the focus not restored after I've apologized? (everything else works that way)
... do I need to sacrifice a pigeon* or self flagellate until I faint first?
