Thanks all,

I'll check out how to configure my mailer with Google Groups for this list.

Nice to know that long-term users parade around in the list. It then, is
much like this one, and a few others that I am on.

Before I foray into configuring my email program to work with Google
Groups, I have one more (simple, I think) question regarding Vim. (I
couldn't come up with the proper Gooliage):

I'd like to create a keyboard map so instead of doing:

- _dd (I believe the underscore is referred to as 'blackhole')

I can do:

- CTRL-whatever

I have a lot of operations that consist of this:

- p
- j
- $
- i
- <CR>
- ^[
- 3j
- i
- <TAB><CR>
- ^[
- 3dd

(not necessarily in that order)...and want an easier way to to do both
'dd' and 'd$' without wrecking the clipboard which I have saved a yank to.

fwiw, the box I'm doing this work on is a jail (with both v4 and v6!) under:

:! uname -a
