>Rip it up

>Deleting stuff on a word processor is highly unsatisfactory experience. You push a key and it’s gone. Where’s the passion? Where’s the anger? How can electronic deletion deliver the same catharsis as, say, grabbing the ten pages of manuscript you just spent a whole morning sweating over (and which you just reread only to conclude they stink), ripping them to shreds and hurling them into the wastebin? So here’s my challenge to programmers: write me some software where, when I hit delete, the whole page disintegrates, or melts, or explodes into flaming shards of atomic chaff. With suitable sound effects, of course.

Make sure there’s an undo though. Just in case.
