I've decided I should get involved with Advogato so more, so I'll be updating my diary more in future.
At this point though, I just want to say I've bit the bullet and actually learned how to use vi. It's weird for a geek to say he only just learned vi, but I just never got around to it, preferring other editors. Now I've learned it, I can't see myself using it all the time, but it definitely has some advantages with its dual command/input modes.
It's got to be better than pico at any rate ;-)
