Works great, except syntax highlighting. It depends time of the day and if there are any clouds blocking the sunlight. :)

Maybe you should upgrade your hardware, use a white board and scanner. :lol:

Don't be so quick to laugh. If you have a wii remote and a light pen, you have a white board. ;)

You lazy man, you! Everyone knows that writing is bad for the memory. I compose, edit, and debug all of my programs in my mind.

(When satisfied, then I key the raw PHP byte-code into the terminal)

Yes! Although I was referring to a USB Whiteboard that accepts the input right into the computer. I had not considered using the Wiimote as a camera to create an ultra-low cost version. That’s cool!!!

FWIW, he also shows how to use it on a laptop. Schools everywhere would save HUGE sums of money by acknowledging and using this.

My daughter's school bought 5 of the digital whiteboards that use different colored pens last year, one being in her class. Those are awesome!

I just edit with Tex-Edit Plus or TextEdit that came with my Mac. But then I'm not really a programmer, I'm a copy/paster. :D

I still like the good old Crimson Editor.
Very outdated, yet I like it more than any of the other text editors I've ever used. :)
