After an almost four year hiatus, I've decided to bring this blog back from the dead. Looking over the last decade, my career as a programmer has been an interesting and challenging endeavor, and over that time period, Vim has been a constant in my professional toolbox. There are countless work days where Vim has saved me hours of pushing bytes around the screen, and a lesser editor would have fallen short of the task.
With this in mind, I feel that I still have a good deal of useful information to share. With the advent of Github and other powerful open source tools, the landscape of the hacker community has evolved. The tools are better, and with reasonable motivation, it feels like any problem is solvable.
In the midst of all of this change, I still believe that Vim is the best tool for the admittedly rote task of munging source code into the best state one can manage given the time constraints and project demands that many of us face.
In lieu of my longstanding love for this text editor (and Linux tools in general), I will resume posting tips to this blog (as they come to mind) in hopes that they can on occasionally help all of you make your hardest problems a little easier and your easy problems a little more fun. Happy Vimming! -Travis
