New: Be sure to see Vi 201 when you're finished here!

Quiet, please! Quiet!

Ah, wonderful! It's nice to have such an obliging class for once; I wish all my students were this kind...

Allow me to introduce myself. I am Professor Elias Flootburger, a member of this august institution's Computer Science department, and the author of several well-received monographs on alien visitations, the occult, and the virtues of banana oil as a cheap substitute for carbon-based petroleum fuels.

I'm also the resident vi expert around here, which is why Principal Kinshott asked me to take this introductory class in vi basics. Looking at the blank expressions around me, I can see that none of you have any idea who or what vi is, let alone any inkling of how it's going to change your life...

Allow me to enlighten you.
