I think everyone is missing something.

There shouldn't be a need for a new editor in circle,  if everyone is using their OS correctly.  I'm using OS/2, and whenever I have something I want post such as a board message or a new room description, I simply fire up my favorite editor, write it, Stick it in my clipboard then post it to my telnet process.  Works great, especially with room descriptions, as I even have a backup in case something goes wrong. Plus, it's lag friendly. ;-)

I don't know much about unix, but surely it is cut/paste friendly even  in text mode, am I wrong?
