The Story Behind Ultra Edit – my text editor of choice – is a bizarre one indeed!
Here’s the story in a nutshell:
* Guy’s happy with his day job.
* Guy writes shareware software program to fill a void in the text editing world.
* Guy goes to sleep one night and says “God, if 20 people register my software tomorrow, that is a sign from you to quit my job!”
* Guy gets 21 registrations the next day and quits his job.
I think the guy was just bored at work. Sometimes I play games like that too.
