in reply to Learn vi/vim in 50 lines and 15 minutes

You forgot:

BEEP MODE

In beep mode, no matter what character you try to press, vim beeps at you. Beginners enter this mode all the time; experts enter it only once every few minutes. Entering beep mode is nearly always unintentional; exiting beep mode is usually just as accidental. If you work in an office, and use vim, you should consider reducing the volume of your machine, or getting a set of headphones so as not to annoy the emacs users nearby.

      I know this is ancient history, but surely:

      - find / -name '*emacs*' -exec rm -f {} \; + find / -name '*emacs*' -print | perl -nle unlink

      there could be a lot of emacs files on there..
