Geek Alert: Ovid's vimrc

Most of you can ignore. Vim fans might see a bit useful stuff here. Basically, I'm putting this up here so I can easily find it no matter which computer I'm at. No, it's not my complete .vimrc. There are a few work-specific items removed.

What makes vim your preferred editor? I'm not trying to start an emacs vs. vim war. I'm just curious, my needs have been so light I just use nano.
I have pretty heavy needs from my editor. I also have a lot of other customizations, including plugins and alternate filetype mappings.

I've no problem with Emacs. I just don't use it.
I took it and laid it down and rolled on it. It is soft and warm. :)

It was also a pretty interesting look at what is possible in the RC file.. I've not looked at the .vimrc recently, but hey my mac's main editor is vim so I grabbed a few of the niftier options. Thanks for the post even though it was simply to satisfy your own needs.

I was gonna post mine, but you can’t post more than 4k in comments here and it’s 10k; and the version on my site is very, very old.
