comment How do I save files edited with vim?
@Sam, I just wanted to nitpick that vi has nothing in particular to do with ubuntu. Ubuntu was first released on 2004, while vi was created by Bill Joy around 1976, inspired by ed (dating back to 1971). This means that the shortcuts in vi predate those in almost any other still commonly used utility today. In a sort of coincidence, the first version of emacs, which has completely different weird shortcuts, was also released on 1976. Standardization efforts came much much later.
comment Repeat a command every x interval of time in terminal?
Thanks @XTian, a great command. I also now saw in the man page that you can add -m to continually monitor without a loop.
