Know Your vi

I through in a little jab at vi in the third frame of today's comic. The truth is, I actually use vi almost every day at work. Remote displays are such a hassle. It got me thinking about this nice vi cheat sheet I was given on my first day of work (almost 15 years ago).

It hung on the wall of my cubicle all these years. I found a copy of it on the Internet and wanted to share it with you!

There are a couple of cleaned-up versions of this same style sheet floating around. I like it because it spells out "vi" with the commands. Just in case you forget what the commands are for. Mine is a copy of a copy of a copy and has some hand-written notes on it too, just like the one I found above. Gives it character.

Right after you read today's comic, go log on to a Linux terminal and edit something with vi!
