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

I use vi when root or remote, emacs for anything else. And that's the way I've used Un*x computers for nearly two decades, so it's not likely I'll change any time soon.

Technical documentation note: you started talking about NNmove in the middle of a paragraph, and leave it up to the user to infer that NN represents some decimal number typed as digits. New general concepts deserve careful introduction.

Start a paragraph with something like, "To do anything a number of times, such as move the cursor eleven lines, just precede the usual command with a number; typing "1 1 k" is equivalent to typing "kkkkkkkkkkk" while in nav mode.

    Fair point, I got carried away with brief. I have broken it out into a para with an explanation along your line. Thanks. Hopefully someone will find it useful.

    cheers

[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
[perldigious]: "for how I roll"... ahhh, I see what you did there stevieb.
