For Dawkins so loved the things of this world....
Might be good to steer away from such, and back to LC. :)

Why think you're alone, Brother Richard? Many are wondering.

Besides some buggy implementations, many of LC's mobile features seem to 
ignore LC's own stated paradigm: cross-platform, "live" code.

That's why I've often opted to use standard features instead.
Write once, truly runs everywhere, including IDE. Very consistent.

But of course tying the two together would be better still.
Write once, run everywhere, with native quality and nuance.
And the ability to easily switch back to standard features.

(Thanks for preaching on this. I've been sick the whole week.
So still in feverish lurk mode. But no, you're not alone! Take care.)

Best wishes,
