Very nice indeed!  Welcome aboard, Ron!

And wow... 6502?  That's what I grew up on too!  I used to remember most
of the opcodes by heart... though nowadays that memory has mostly faded
away.  The thought of it still evokes nostalgic feelings, though.

I'm also not a big fan of dub, but I'm in the minority around these
parts.  Having grown up on makefiles and dealt with them in a large
project at my day job, I've developed a great distaste for them, and
nowadays the standard build tool I reach for is SCons.  Though possibly
in the not-so-distant future I might start using something more scalable
like Tup, or Button, written by one of our very own D community members.
But for small projects, just plain ole dmd is Good Enough(tm) for me.

I won't bore you with my boring editor, vim (with no syntax highlighting
-- yes I've been told I'm crazy, and in fact I agree -- just plain ole
text, with little things like autoindenting, no fancy IDE features --
Linux is my IDE, the whole of it :-P).  Vim users seem to out in force
around these parts for some reason, besides the people clamoring for a
"proper" IDE, but I suspect I'm the only one who deliberately turns
*off* syntax highlighting, and indeed, any sort of color output from dmd
or any other tools (I find it distracting). So don't pay too much heed
to what I say, at least on this subject. :-D
