Same here. I know the feeling all too well. Work, wife, etc ... Wife's on the phone at the moment :-)

Thanks for posting. I'll have to give this a try. Even though I'm writing emacs keybindings, I still use vim quite frequently. I think I'm one of the few that actually uses both emacs and vim pretty adeptly. I think I've always favored emacs as I like elisp far better than vimscript. With textadept, I thought it would be a good way to practice some Lua!

Cool! It'll be interesting to see how I fare. In reality, I'm trying to think of how often I actually need to split my screen though. The most common time I do so in emacs is with my IRC session (of course it runs within my editor, doesn't everyone?). But I can easily work around that with tmux split screens.
