You all suck. Your devotion to the ASCII and text based anything is sad. Cool people don't use text at all. Cool people code with tiles. I'd draw you a picture, but this crappy forum wouldn't support it.

Ed is for noobs, use cat to write code, and never make bugs, so you never have to edit your files..

Pah! When I was young, we inscribed the bits directly on the surface of the hard disk platter. It took months to write even small programs, but at least you got a real sense of achievement! Kids these days, don't know how good they got it...

Feh. Your generation had it easy. Back in my day we didn't have those fancy-schmancy hard drives. We used punch cards and we liked it. A savefile took up an entire filing cabinet, and the running the Angband binary required enough racks to hold over 8 million vacuum tubes. It took 4 full coal trucks to generate enough electricity to play a single game. But it made us tough, and strong, unlike these wimpy kids today.

Pah, you had it easy. Back in my day we actually had to act out the game with our own torches, food rations, and shitty daggers. We had to build our own acid traps and spiked pits.

Most of us died. RNG god gave us shitty starting stats.

Yeah, throw it out's the best thing you could do. But you won't, will you, because you're a hipster fanboi loser.

Sadly, modern hard disks does not support this, they break if opened. However I used to program some nice device, produced in Soviet Union, where you write a program by swtching switches, something like an 30 by 30 array of swithches, one for each bit.
