I understand why development on

2013-06-11 19:21:09.440847+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

I understand why development on production servers can be necessary, and I don't want install anything new, but vi can just FOAD already.

The worst part is that I can get around in vi fairly well, it's just that sometimes I'll forget if I'm in insert mode, and...

Yeah. Mostly, I type in Emacs, and then paste into vi in a terminal window.

I generally use Pico or JPico (Joe in Pico emulation mode) because I rarely need to use a terminal editor and appreciate a menu system when I do.

I can't even remember the vi or EMACS key bindings anymore. I have no intention to relearn them either.
