I fell in love with TECO the moment I actually started using it a couple of days ago.

If there's ever going to be an Esoteric OS, TECO would be its editor of choice.

Isn't "type" a better editor? >:-) --Ihope127 19:26, 29 Oct 2005 (GMT)
LOL! you mean as in "type > filename.txt"?! Wow i've rarely done that if ever, for DOS that is. I do "cat > filename.txt" on UNIX all the time! But not for DOS. Ah Blame Notepad for that one. Blame edit for that one back in the day too! (DOS 5.0+) I should download TECO. Hey it's funny that you mention an Esoteric OS, I totally forgot about your comment when I wrote this thing and this too! --Stux 14:01, 31 Oct 2005 (GMT)
In which version of DOS does type function without an argument?
But "copy con filename.txt" seems to work for me.... -- Smjg 17:08, 15 April 2010 (UTC)


What on earth makes you think "I own this website and I'll just change everything without telling anybody"? What was going through your mind when you created all those junk pages? Are you so blind you are unable to read the help page which says that categories must be discussed before you go and implement them?

I don't understand it. You decided that the esolang wiki is "Stux's Home Page" where Stux can do whatever he wants. I just don't understand it. --(this comment by Graue at 17:22, 31 October 2005 UTC; please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Reply from Stux: I am sorry. With all due respect I had no intention of taking over your site or causing harm. Usually I am a careful editor, I try to contribute as much as I can to expanding this wiki, and I always take care in overstepping my bounds, and didn't think I was doing so at the time. I saw the note someone left on the Main Page discussion, thought it was a good idea and since no one had objected, reasoned it would be a good thing to implement. Again, I had no intention to deface or haphazardly create random pages, much less take over your wiki. I am sadded that you took this to offense. I did not expect you to go as far as to ban me from the site. --Stux
Yeah, I didn't see that note on the main page's talk. Blame Rune for not putting it in Esolang talk:Categorization. (BTW, the ban was a short one intended so you would see the message before readding the categories.) In any event, adding categories affects a lot of pages, so it is better talked out first. --(this comment by Graue at 18:27, 6 November 2005 UTC; please sign your comments with ~~~~)
I'm the one who originally suggested adding these categories two months ago, but no one else gave an opinion. So don't blame all of this on Stux. I see now that I for some (stupid?) reason wrote the suggestion on Talk:Main_Page instead of in the categories page, so that might be the reason. Or maybe no one cared. Anyway, it is too bad it came to this. In my opinion Stux should probably have tried to get some more response from other people before creating all these categories (which is why I haven't done it already), but banning is a bit harsh. However, the ban is just for 24 hours so I guess it was only meant as a warning. I hope this will not scare you away from the wiki, Stux. Graue can be a bit rough sometimes (no offense Graue), but he means well :)
As for the year categories, I still think they are a good idea. The ability to browse the languages chronologically, instead of just alphabetically, is something I would find interesting, so I guess I'll try to start a discussion about it again (on the proper talk page this time). --Rune 19:04, 31 Oct 2005 (GMT)
I'd like a list of languages by year. --Ihope127 00:35, 1 Nov 2005 (GMT)
Second that. --User:Keymaker

Hi again, guys. First of all I'd like to thank you Rune, Ihope127 and User:Keymaker for your support. And I appreciate your response Graue for replying to my post and explaining your actions (No offense, but Graue, could you sign your posts more often? It's taken me 3 months to realize that it was one of your replies posted here). The reason I have been absent for so is rather obvious, but it has been this long until I finally could distance myself enough from the incident to reply and comment to everything that's happened. I have had a lot of more important personal business to take care of and at the time, being banned was the last thing I needed much less expected from a wiki community. More so, I felt very disrepected by the language you used Graue, in commenting my actions with regards to the category additions. I could understand a 24hr ban but then being treated in an undignified manner does not help things. In all I felt treated even worse than a troll. A simple note telling me to stop and reverse my edits would have sufficed and I would have quickly obliged. Nor was I a totally new user that I didn't know what I was doing.

The last issue I'd like to discuss is the rule of not creating categories without discussion. I am sorry I did not dig through your help page and followed the proper procedure, however this is really the first wiki I have encountered that requires any and all categories to be discussed before creation (granted that was a LOT of categories I created, and I understand even more the need to discuss big projects). Only now did I carefully read through your comments and found out where this small policy lies. My point is, most wiki users that have some considerable experience assume they do not need to read the help page, and as a result will not know about the category rule. This is an important rule that has been tucked away in a small line and I seriously believe it should be in a much more prominent place, linked from several places, such as the main page. More so, the section could even be in its own page titled "policy" to reflect its importance. Please don't see this as a lame excuse for what I did. I think the situation serious enough that I would like to do what I can so that things like this can be prevented from happening to other potential users of this wiki, and the user base can grow. Thank you for your time.

I also forgot to mention that the Years category looks good and I'm very happy to see it being implemented. And I love the template. --Stux 16:11, 9 Feb 2006 (GMT)

Hi again, and welcome back! I love wiki-templates too :) --Rune 19:08, 9 Feb 2006 (GMT)
Yeah, welcome back! --Keymaker 21:59, 9 Feb 2006 (GMT)


HI STUX! The thing 15:45, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Um... Hi Stux? The thing 11:35, 21 Oct 2006 (UTC)
Stux ain't here, man. Seriously though, he hasn't made any edits since 9th February 2006[1] --Safalra 14:35, 21 Oct 2006 (UTC)
Hi The Thing. Thanks for peeking in. I've been busy and avoiding the site for a while. I'm starting to check back on my wiki accounts and might be active again for a brief while. Also, hi to Safalra! --Stux 03:42, 27 Dec 2006 (UTC)
