You know you're getting used to vim when you go to esc,esc :wq to post a toot...when you're in a regular web browser

@brandon I do it in bash on the regular. I've considered switching to vim mode for bash...

@gentoorebel I didn't know that was a thing :P Tho I don't imagine it's all that useful

@brandon @gentoorebel Of course it is useful, aside from the obvious vim like motions you get with it, it also changes some other behaviors. For example <c-w> in default mode deletes all the characters till the space, but in vi mode it actually deletes a word, which is probably the biggest reason I use it.

@brandon I use shift-z-z instead of :wq. It's faster to type

@TheOuterLinux @Skryking I honest prefer nano, it's quite useful for a few edits here and there or a quick set up of a config file but for actual coding, hell no 🤣

@brandon Or like with me when trying to save something in another app. I find myself doing ESC then trying to type ':w'.
