comment (Vista) Discover what app is reserving a shortcut key?
Note: Run this when you can walk away from the computer for a little while. It seems to detect all the hotkeys on your system by actually pressing all the hotkeys for you, then watching their effects. Look for a Magnifying Glass overlay if everything looks twice as big by the time it's done.

comment Vim - how to substitute a word in-place?
@psihodelia If you don't find this answer comfortable, you may not be familiar with vim's text object selection, like ci( and da". Those motions have been a huge help to me, and I recommend you try using them more often if you haven't already learned since asking this question.

@Andy: There may not be a Win7 x64 binary for download, the x86 one works just fine on my 64bit Win7 setup.
