I'll have to check into this - sounds good.  If you happen to have a 
handy summary of what I should obtain and how I should go about 
installing it don't hesitate to shoot me a copy directly.

Yes - Java IDEs are rather hoggish on resources.  I've always found the 
macros a handy feature as well - it's amazing how quickly you can modify 
things by recording a macro and then turning it loose for several 
iterations ^u-20-^x-e - very handy ...

I guess I'm just odd.  Well, and you must be too ;-), because I - like 
you - always prefered Emacs.  It's really light-weight and ... the power 
is something else.

So far as IDEA goes.  I tried it - and I like it (and Eclipse too) - but 
I really prefer good ol'e Netbeans.  Of course, we're all different ;-)
