You know you’re a nerd…

when you are constantly trying to give MS Word vi commands. Far too often I have to clean out “:w” and “:wq” sequences. I hate reaching for the mouse and the only thing I use control keys for normally is ctrl-c and ctrl-d. Arg. A similar habit is typing “printk” when I mean “printf” (printk is the Linux kernel’s equivalint to printf).

  1. I’ve actually typed :wq into instant messages. Go me.

    I’ve also confused them with shell prompts and tried typing “exit” to close them…
