    I still remember Ctrl-K-B and Ctrl-K-K to mark the beginning and end of a block respectively; the second letter in those combinations being the first and last letters of the word "block", which was what passed for an intuitive user interface in those days

    The column selection mode was useful when working with hex or binary representations of data, too. I used WordStar (or the clone NewWord) as my primary text editor when writing several games in 8086 assembly language

      As if by magic, the sun appeared about 30 seconds before the photographer. She's now going round doing the stills, then the video comes later.

        This is when you spot an errant sock under the bed when you see the printed up version of the brochure.

          My photographer friend provides photography training for estate agents as a (quite lucrative) sideline, but I'm not sure if it's just about framing, lighting, and using the right lenses to make rooms look bigger, or if there's also a module about Photoshopping out stray socks

            I rather miss the facilities for columnar frigging about that the General Automation line editor provided.

            Though, to be honest, I haven't needed them much in the intervening 30 odd years.

            Oh, how @K=Y, and @col=1,72 just trips off the fingers.

            Or @1/5,P to list the first five lines of a file.

            Or the joy of having to close the file down and reopen it if it was too big to fit in memory and the first bit was no longer accessible.

            How we laughed.

              Having decided to wash the decidely gamey cords I wear in the house, decided to do the smalls out of the washbasket too, and it's all hanging on the line at the moment.

              Picked up the windfall and jackdaw-fall pears which reduced me to a state of extreme perspiration, thusly I am now in the living room typing away in my underpants.
