What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to do
with Lisp, Janney?

Why do you say that?


What does your recap have to do with Lisp, Janney?

I don't understand.


What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to
do with Lisp, Janney? Not hiding an open port from the Internet is
an open invitation to hackers, Janney.

Maybe your life has something to do with this.


What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to
do with Lisp, Janney? How can you connect to the version repository
to check files in and out if you aren't running the repo's server,
Janney?

Is it because can me connect to the version repository to check files
in and out if I am not running the repo's server that you came to me?


What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to
do with Lisp, Janney? The version control client (used to check
files in and out of the repo) needs a port to connect to, Janney.

What makes you believe repo might want to have this port to connect
to?


What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to
do with Lisp, Janney? The version control client (used to check
files in and out of the repo) needs to know where to connect to,
Janney.

How does it feel to want?


What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to
do with Lisp, Janney? Version control clients are generally shell
commands, Janney, e.g. cvs and svn. IDEs like Eclipse and NetBeans
may provide graphical front ends to common version control systems,
Janney, but such IDEs are only applicable if you're using the
version control system for its intended purpose of software
development, Janney.

Does it bother you that such ides are only applicable if I am using
the version control system for its intended purpose of software
development?


How ironic. Emacs has a steeper learning curve than any of the other
software that's been discussed here, Janney; consequently, using emacs
cannot possibly make any of these tasks easier.

Emacs?  Hah!  I would appreciate it if you would continue.


What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to
do with Lisp, Janney?

Perhaps your plans have something to do with this.


So much for your claims regarding it not being a command-line tool, Janney.

Is it because of the people you hang around with that you are going
through all this?


That a well-designed screwdriver might, in a pinch, be slammed into a
nail to drive it in does not make it preferable to a hammer for that
purpose, Janney.

Does the fact that a well designed screwdriver might in a pinch be
slammed into a nail to drive it in does not make it preferable to a
hammer for that purpose explain anything else?


What does your classic erroneous presupposition have to do with Lisp,
Janney?  I can imagine it just fine -- I just don't like the results I
see when I imagine it.

What happened when you imagine it?


Diffs that are gobbledygook when you try to check
the history of your .doc files.

Is it because are gobbledygook when me try to check the history of my
doc files that you came to me?


Awkward work at 80s-retro command line
interfaces. The hellish experience of struggling with emacs's
idiosyncrasies trying to get it to do anything useful.

What makes you believe that?


Of such things are my nightmares composed, Janney -- I who can face
the likes of Cthulhu with equanimity.

Earlier you said gobbledygook when me try to check the history of my
doc files?
