Yes, this is a Movable Type weblog. Yes, I accessed it through Firefox. Yet I hate typing in little text input boxes.
I’m writing this (surprisingly post-modern) entry in Vim, a tool I find almost indispensible. It seems like every time I use a computer, I end up wanting to use Vim.
I’ve used Vim to write all of my articles and all of my books. (I’ve used Vim to edit all of the articles and books I’ve edited too. I even wrote a two-line wiki in Vim, which I use to, among other things, keep track of the list of free software projects that deserve my thanks.
Speaking of software, I don’t know how I’d program without Vim. I’ve tried a few IDEs here and there, and there are some nice features, but the ability to work with text rapidly and quickly, through powerful muscle memory, keeps me using Vim.
So to Bram and all of the other developers and contributors to Vim, especially those who’ve shared a few of their secrets which I’ve incorporated into my personal corpus of productivity, thank you. Your work is indispensible.
