I would really like to see a web interface for BF.... anyone want to take up
the challenge... I don't have the web knowledge? I have always used vi so I
know no other.. but have seen them.... but.... it is true.. vim/pico are
pretty easy for the average user I suppose... if you can remember when you
first started out with Linux it was a little intimidating wasn't it......
that's how these guys are feeling I imagine.......
