Default What's your highest new file number in Notepad++?

When you create a new file in the Notepad++ editor it creates a file named "new ###" where ### is an integer that starts at 1 but is incremented to always be one higher than the highest numbered file you currently have open.

So in your Notepad++ program what is the highest numbered file that you currently have open?

Here are mine:
Work : 301
Home : 126

I just opened new file 29 before leaving work. I'm sure I've been in the 30s before

Things Regular notepad don't do:
Syntax highlighting
File comparison
URL encoding/decoding
Function listing
Open documents that are like 50mb in any sort of reasonable timeframe, if at all

I used Notepad++ very briefly in college, but after learning vim and growing to rely on it on OS X, Linux, and Windows, I can't imagine going back. I switch between OSes waaaaaay too often (often all three in the same day!) to make it worth learning a platform-specific text editor.

Notepad++ is one of the most important pieces of software I use and it's the first thing installed after Windows whenever I build a new VM. Fuck Office, fuck email, etc.

Well, Notepad++ and 7-Zip.

I can't use regular ol' Notepad even to take notes (that's what Wordpad is for). Notepad is the worst.

All of my current files are named. I very likely have never reached double digits.
