Much ado about scripting, Linux & Eclipse: card subject to change

EuroFM is on the air!

Europa Fall Maintenance is out today, so in tribute...

(Ctrl-) Space Down

Hey Eclipse you know you drive me crazy.
Ctrl-3 puts the rhythm in my hand.
Still I'll never understand how you can do so much
Plugins, features and such
Install Europa bundles from a mirror
Tell yourself it's so gonna rock your world again
You fire it up and then you swear a little

Do you feel like a geek
When you push its buttons?
Do you feel better now Ctrl-Space'ing a ton?
Well I'll tell you my friend no way this world's going to end
IDEs crumble down, they're eclipsed by this one

A pebble in the water makes a ripple effect
Every action in this world will bear a consequence
If you code by hand forever you will surely drown
I see what's goin' down.
Don't be a fool and use vi, emacs or notepad,
Startin' from scratch again,
Heed my lecture

Do you feel like a geek
When you push its buttons?
Do you feel better now Ctrl-Space'ing a ton?
Well I'll tell you my friend no way this world's going to end
IDEs crumble down, they're eclipsed by this one

In June '08 when we've all had enough,
Time for the Gany train!
[x2]

Do you feel like a geek
When you push its buttons?
Do you feel better now Ctrl-Space'ing a ton?
Well I'll tell you my friend no way this world's going to end
IDEs crumble down, they're eclipsed by this one

Downloadin' the code, she said, 'The mother lode!'
She said, I've finally found the best!
[x2]

Red Jumpsuit Aparatus - Face Down

10,000 Hits

Europa!
Europa!

One more download, yay! I know what I want
And my want will be an upgrade all right, an upgrade all right
Just another day when all that I want
Will mark me as an Eclipser tonight, an Eclipse geek tonight, yeah

[Chorus]
Jupiter's moons that can block out the Sun
If this disturbs you then walk away
You will remember: use -vmargs and -vm
10,000 Googlin' away!

Plug-ins un-restrained, dead on the mark
Is what we will deliver tonight, deliver tonight
"Features suck," they say, "but Update finally works!"
With even plugins tonight? Yes, even plugins tonight. Yeah!

[Chorus]

We are the ones that will open your mind
Leave the weak and the NetBeans behind
[x4]

[Chorus]

10,000 Googlin' away! 10,000 reqs per half-day!

We definitely need a live recording.

Maybe you could contact Jonathan Coulton to jam on live.eclipse.org? He was at PAX this year and brought down the house with such numbers as Re: Your Brains and Code Monkey.
