back from running (back awhile ago, actually).

learning vi, using some handle quick references. i absolutely love how you can proceed a command with a number to do it multiple times. as far as I know, emacs can't do that so easily. and I love how intuitive the editing commands are... 0 for beginning, $ for end of line (which makes sense if you know regular expressions), and then d0 and d$ delete to beginning of line and end of line... so damn cool.

talking to dystopia now, and cleaning my inbox, and working on LJ.

vi

It took me the longest time to finally learn vi. Eventually I was using so many solaris boxes that didn't come with anything else, I got tired of installing other editors and started learning vi.


Now I don't think I could really live without it. So flexible.


You should stay away from that dirty emacs!
