Tip: Macros in Notepad++

If you find yourself performing several of the same operations within Notepad++, you can use its Macro option to record and save them. This morning I was able to use it to record Paste, Find What, Replace With, and Replace All into one handy keystroke.

Crime and Punishment

I just finished programming a robot that evaluates life forms and if determined to be human, follows a pretty straightforward If/Then sequence:

IF [CHEWING_GUM_WITH_MOUTH_OPEN=TRUE]
THEN [PUNCH_IN_THROAT]

If you happen to receive a punch in the throat due to said activity, I’m sorry.

But you had it coming.
