We are taking a less pragmatic approach. VI is evil ( 'vi' is roman
numerals for '6'. This means if you use it 3 times you are doomed
vi vi vi = 6 6 6 . Dose this make sense ? :) of course.
I am actually pretty good at dragging back drives from "dead" regardless
of OS. I keep a binary version of "joe" on a diskette for emergencies
and a static version in /bin. All this just to avoid VI.
