I'm imagining coding away in a class, and calling some method in another class and being able to click something like visual studio's "go to definition" button, but rather than switching the code pane, it pops up just the requested method in a little side pane.
It does sound like a cool idea. I might just give this a try at home sometime.
That is seriously neat. Looks like it's for Java... if it were for C#, I'd be all over it. I would like to program with that using a giant screen, like the one from Minority Report. I suppose the large virtual surface and ability to zoom out is their substitute for that, but that doesn't mean I don't still want it.
using language scope (e.g. classes, methods) instead of compiler scope (i.e. files)
Linking to, and annotating source elements
Integrating non-code elements (docs, bug tracker, ...)
I'd love to see a source-control-integrated "history fo this function".
I don't know how well this works with "chinese wall of code" functions (say, 100 chars wide x 1000 lines). Also, do other IDE tools integrate with it - am I going to miss them? Does it preserve the "classic" file format as source control / compiler interface, so that other tools in the workflow can do their job?
This reminds me of FoxPro Code Snippets, and how developers (at the time) thought it was a great idea, right up until that first big project ... when things weren't going right ... and you had to find that one code snippet that was causing the problem, which went something like:
Not this one.
No, that's not it
Or this one
No. Wait, didn't I just look at that one??!?!?!
Crap, maybe it was this one.
Ok, I'll just open them all, I'm sure there aren't that many of thes...
OH MOTHER OF GOD! STOP! STOP!

So I'm still on my poor man's diet, and it's going well. I find new stuff all the time that's cheap to eat. In particular, tortillas + canned chili have tons of variations. Last I tried was putting a tortilla in a bowl-like dish, tossing in some chili and a few fresh ingredients, and baking it for a bit... crunchy deliciousness! Here are some other things I've tried:
These are delicious and cheap. The really filling ones are $3 and the cheap ones are $0.79 (takes about 2 of those to be filling, though I usually opt for some small side dish).
These are frozen/crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Kind of like a PB&J hot pocket. You just defrost them (or leave them frozen) by leaving them out for a few minutes. They are pretty cheap (about $1/sandwich), though real PB&J's are probably cheaper. Their main advantage is being super convenient.
This is what I call ramen soup with extra stuff added. I just tried adding some fresh chives I had chopped and frozen, a can of tuna, and some pepper. Also added ⅓ of the flavor packet. The total cost for ramen+ in this case was about $2. And you can add lots of leftover stuff to ramen... ramen is not picky!
I think I'm spending under $10/day, or maybe a little more, but whatever the amount it is certainly less than before. A few months and I should be seeing some real savings (which I'm sure I'll use to buy VS2010... eventually).
During my college days, I was on a school meal plan. The food actually wasn't bad... certainly better than anything I make myself on a regular basis. But I got a doctor to sign a form that said I had IBS and I was able to get off the meal plan. That enabled me to cook whatever I wanted or buy meals from the cafeteria. I even violated the rules to keep a couple electric burners in my dorm room. They eventually let me use the school kitchen though, which I used to wash dishes, as my dorm sink just did not fit a pot under the faucet. I suppose I'm making up for that now by eating on the cheap.
And thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to give that pasta/tuna combo a try.
