Atom - the Notepad++ alternative

I've been using Notepad++ as my default notepad for more years than I can remember. Tonight I was fed up with a bug in my installation that constantly slows down my productivity, and on a whim searched for an alternative to Notepad++.

I found Atom:
http://atom.io

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Short version - check it out. I think I'm uninstalling Notepad++.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

Sublime Text

Big Mike,

If I knew you were in the market for a text editor I would have recommended Sublime Text. I've been using it for my programming for years, and it will run on just about any OS. What I love most is multi-line editing. I can't count the times I needed to edit every instance of a line of code, word or sentence and to be able to do it all in one shot is a lifesaver.

Not proselytizing, just putting it out there in case you're still looking.

Our life is our own today. Tomorrow you will be dust, a shade, a tale that is told. Live mindful of death, the hour flies.

I saw it and dismissed it when I saw Atom was open source

Multiline editing is supported by Atom too, (ctrl+alt, then select lines) ...

Sounds like I should give Atom a try too! I'll give it a test drive.
