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.

Re: Vi Vs. Emacs

That's consistent with what I've felt so far... I hate having to switch between modes by reaching up to escape all the time... it's easier for my pinky finger to go hit control than it is for my whole left hand to move up to hit esc.
