Hey! Why is that everytime i try to write 'D A M N' it shows 'darn'??

Maybe the forum has automatic replacement of "forbidden words". Just a guess.

`s.ex' -> gender
`d.amn' -> darn
`s.hit' -> math

you can see the point.

PS: The last ????

Vim is hard to use.  I barely know how to use it myself.  But I've seen some friends of mine use it, and they are lighting fast.  If you get good at it, you can type faster on it than with a gui program (like notepad, gui is graphical user interface, as opposed to text like vim).  So it's all just a question about how much effort you want to put in.  Personally, I don't really think it's worth it, though if I get a lot of free time, I'll start trying to learn the in's and out's of vim.

ViM is hard. ViM is powerfull. ViM is fun. ViM is. smile

I started with VIM more than 3 years ago, when I entered university. The learning curve is...not a curve, its a vertical line one has to climb... If you are learning alone, no instructor/friend, its hard.

Things get much easier if you get some friend of yours to teach because you don't get so lost with all the commands and features. You can start working from day zero = )   Some of my friends started using ViM under my guidance, and now they are already teaching it to others! = )

And I will never forget the day pedro `mawreal' lopes told me: "forget emacs, I'll teach you the basics of ViM". cool

The more you learn, the more you *want* to learn! guess what...just like Maths!roflol

When we introduce infinity, so many things get destroyed that make you want to go back and say, "Ok, let's not add in infinity".
