comment Testing vimscript
Awesome. One question: Is there a zsh equivalent? It's hard to know what shell vim will be running in, and I know I can't support all of them, but hitting all the big players would be nice.

comment urxvt bold colors are wrong - bold #0-7 are using colors from #8-15
Wow, terminal emulators really are a ghetto. Thank you very much, this was bugging the hell out of me.

It's literally exactly the same, except the ", 16" on line 25 is removed.

comment Linux Mint 13 (Maya / Cinnamon) three-finger middle click
Yep. Two finger touch is right click. I'd like both. Two finger scroll also works.

comment Vimdiff and git all at once
I agree. The only real use case I've seen for tabs is when I want a similar group of buffers open in a different configuration of windows; i.e. one tab has a header and a source file in a split, while another tab has the source and a makefile in a vertical split. Or something. And sometimes it's nice to have a "stack of windows", i.e. you're editing four files in some splits and you want to make a quick edit to your vimrc, :tabe ~/.vimrc followed by :bd is a nice combo.

comment Sigkill terminal emulator
Works fine, but doesn't seem the nicest way to go about things -- is this really the 'good citizen' way to do it?

startx, currently. No plans to switch.

comment Vim hangs on escape
I don't use gvim. Repros in arch linux and mac osx lion.

comment Vim hangs on escape
No mappings found. I'm pretty sure it's related to timeout because when I set notimeout the problem is far worse, but there appear to be no mappings. (I can reproduce it with a fresh install / no .vimrc / no .vim too, FWIW.)

That is likely. Is there a way to tell vim to ignore such command sequences?

comment Map caps lock to control. In linux. Without X
Keith Thompson is correct. I'm trying to remap without X, which is why I'm asking here - it's pretty hard to find a good resource on the net that doesn't suggest xmodmap.

comment Setting up a minimalist linux environment
I can see how it could be misconstrued. I meant that I hop between distros, and occasionally from Linux to BSD. Mac, being BSD-based, wouldn't be out of the question, but I'm quite attached to by *nix command line.

comment Setting up a minimalist linux environment
I think you missed the part where I'm setting up a 'minimalist linux environment'. :) I think it would be hard to get a good terminal emulator and tmux running satisfactorily on windows, for starters. This is my programming machine, and there are a whole world of programs that I use that would be no fun in a windows environment.

comment Vim tabs and spaces
This allows me to only use tabs at the beginning of lines, but doesn't auto change to spaces when, for example, parentheses are unclosed.

comment Vim disable tab-completion
If you had posted that as an answer, I'd mark this question as answered. Thanks for the tip!

comment Vim tabs and spaces
An indent file will not do this. An indent file returns the number of indentation levels to be used, which is converted into tabs or spaces depending upon shiftwidth and expandtab. That doesn't let me use tabs for indentation and spaces for alignment.

comment Vim tabs and spaces
This isn't even close. This makes all tabs into spaces, I want to use tabs for indentation and spaces for alignment.

comment Vim 7.3 with unicode on Ubuntu
Just your standard config / make / make install. It may not be VIMs fault, but unicode works on gnome-terminal, and displays as gibberish when I copy-paste to VIM. The same was not true for 7.2, which is why I assumed it was VIM.

comment Troubleshooting new computer: shuts down instantly
All of it is brand new. :/ There might be a short somewhere between the motherboard and the case. I thought that I checked that pretty thoroughly, but I don't know how to be sure.

comment Troubleshooting new computer: shuts down instantly
Yeah, I'm hoping that I just mis-plugged something in. I don't think that it's a POST issue, as the mobo does not beep. I tried booting up with only mobo, CPU+fan, PSU, one stick of RAM, and GPU (there's no onboard video), still the same issue. The weird thing is that while it only stays on for an instant, every four to five seconds it comes on for another instant then cuts out again. Any idea what could be causing that? Thanks.
