That is good information.  Although I installed VIM for CE as my editor.

One question, though.  I installed pythonce on my Storage Card (CF) but
it doesn't seem to want to run if it isn't installed in internal
storage.  Is there a way around this?

Finally, the 'run' command does not show up on mine either - perhaps
because I'm running wisbar?
