Also, if you could let me know more about the Vim split-window thing that'd be really really helpful

comment Vim: Terminal-to-terminal copy&paste?
WOW thanks a lot for all this information. Just wondering, but what do you mean by "clipboard support" and "system clipboard"?

Shift+"insert"? do you mean the button "insert"?

It's open source, and I was instructed by the developer to copy it :)

Is it not appropriate to do so?

comment Tabs in Vim: When the alignment is all wrong how do you fix…?
It's a shame that Python won't let you use *curly braces* to denote the start and end of a function or a block of code. The indentation rule just makes it confusing to debug files that are of at least a certain length!!

Nevermind, I was tricked! The problem is that working on *my* machine had settings so that pressing the TAB button would insert TWO tabs (8 spaces). THAT's what the problem was!

Hence that's why I suspect that command is just chopping up any tab that appears bigger. I originally left some comments when working on my own machine indicating that certain 6-length tabs were indeed only 1 tab :(

@sebastiangeiger - Thanks, I just tried that, since it was the simplest solution I've gotten so far - but it seems that what vim may be doing is chopping up the 6-length tabs into two (as denoted by the vertical markings :retab! has added; automatically adding in the vertical markings was part of my goal, so that is taken care of. The problem is that some lines where I was sure contained only one 6-length tab now shows up as containing TWO vertical marks)

But not every line has the same number of tabs... some may just have 1, but there are some that even have 6!

Why are we interested in FLOATING POINT operations, and not just regular ones (hence, why are FLOPS the standard we go by)?

Hi gbn. Thanks but could you provide a particular, concrete example of what you are saying? :)

comment Distributed systems: how does their architecture allow them to do what is needed?
+Great answer. Could you explain what distributed caching is, in a general sense?

comment Why is there so much hype about Virtualization these days?
Ah I see. Just curious, but are most consultants independent contractors / freelancers, or is there usually an organization that manages the consultants?
