Gahhh! Much UNIX geekiness!

Heh.  I was editing my /etc/issue in vi and I wanted to put the entire file in caps, a la DoD systems.  Without thinking, I typed :%s/[a-z]/\u&/g

The fact that I speak with what Evi Nemeth, Garth Snyder, and Scott Seebass have agreed to call “viese” disturbs me greatly.  I often find myself tying to grep (:g/[re]/p) through documents in Notepad only to find I’ve been typing vi commands into my text document.  /cry
