comment Line length highlighting works correctly in console Vim, not GUI
Using set colorcolumn=XX places a static border in display, which is the one I've been using for some time. I wanted this behavior instead.

Wow, moving them to the last part did work. Thanks a bunch! Could you change your answer to this so I can accept it? It would be a shame if it's just left as a comment.

Would it have anything to do with the current colorscheme, perhaps? I use Molokai. What colorscheme do you use?

I've clarified the question further. The line exceeding the length restriction is indeed getting highlighted in the correct character, but it's not getting colored in magenta (or in any color for that matter). I wanted to try this out after working with textwidth and colorcolumn previously.

I put this answer in, then remembered I couldn't do it in gVim, so I asked. ;)

comment Can I git clone into a directory without cloning the project name as a directory (using bitbucket)?
I initially thought the OP misspelled "gitbucket" - turns out there's an actual project behind it.

comment How/Where do you install Console2 on Windows 7
Consider using ConsoleZ. It is essentially a fork of the original Console2 project, which has become dormant. ConsoleZ is being actively developed, and provides a better experience under Windows 7/8.

comment How do I modify my git bash profile in Windows?
If aliases for Git commands are needed, editing the .gitconfig file is usually sufficient.
