Vi: Pirates vs. Ninjas


"Killer coding ninja monkeys do exist."

Are you a pirate or a ninja?

Thanks to Andrew Hall for the shirt.

If Ninja == Vi, then I'm a Ninja.

BTW, I have that same shirt. Have you decoded the binary string at the bottom yet? :-)

Is that a pirate gang sign?

Yep.

I've gotten lazy about such things. I'm always worried I'll type it in wrong, and I haven't tried getting OCR with a digital camera to work yet ;)

It says "VI". If you use your opposite hand, you can spell out "VIM" too ;)

That is a sweet vim gang sign. I am going to have to start throwing that at work to those emacs flunkies.

Keep flashing that around and you are going to have an Emacs drive-by on your hands.

Ah, I see it now. I thought maybe it was an E.

I'm not worried. Do you know how hard it is for an Emacs guy to pull the trigger? It's gotta be C-x C-t or something like that!

JJ,
The only thing that could make the photo cooler would be replacing the station wagon in the background with a minivan.
BTW, you are a ninja.
