I have discovered vim, vi improved. For those who don’t know, Bill Joy, of Sun Microsystems, first wrote vi in the seventies to serve as a more humane alternative to other line-oriented editors at the time. Thirty-plus years later, people still use it, and now I know why. I love it. I feel born again. Several years ago, I began writing my own editor called e, made for the blind. Now I feel weird setting that asside to learn vim, but I love it so much, and feel that the end result will prove worth it – the inspiration vim will give, etc.
I posted this after the event in question. I repost it now because of the referenced bout with godaddy, who I can now tell to SUCK IT!
I will repost a series of articles I wrote for my old blog, as well as on my blog at breakthematrix. I will start with this classic. Unfortunately, no longer exists, but my complaints remain justified.
