  • A million+ keystrokes

    Someone did an awful lot of work for us.

    Two surprises for me in this:
    1. That the letter 'e' is the second most used keystroke. 'E' and 'e' combine for over 100,000 keystrokes.
    2. That the caret '^' is not used.

    In some future era, dark matter and dark energy will only be found in Astronomy's Dark Ages.

    Yes. I've done a pile of rooting around in there and am forever grateful for it!

      Let's not forget all times they've hit Insert, Delete, Backspace and Return over the years trying to update, fix and maintain that monster. I guess also, let's hope there was a fair bit of Ctrl+C, Ctrl+X and Ctrl+V going on. They save me a ton of work even on my modestly-sized source files.

        The guys at PB and the support in the forum all deserve a round

        From simple concepts to extremely hard concepts, they got me covered.

        From unwashing the brainwashed (take it from a VB6 refugee) to the concepts of API, to Machine language, and all between, I am quickly learning..."If I have a problem, there is a solution to it"
