I never got into vi. I know it's incredibly fast for those who are good at it, but it was never a skill I cared to cultivate, and my career has been Microsoft oriented.
vi was never a great editor - but it was the first thing we learnt (after ed) so it kind of stuck. And it's guaranteed to be present on any Linux or OSX machine unlike emacs.

I wrote my thesis using emacs but for quick editing I always use vi.

By the way, here's a question to test how much of Unix nerd you are.

How do you pronounce "vi"?

A) "vi" rhyming with "why"
B) "vi" as in "visual"
C) V.I.
D) "six" (or whatever the number 6 is in your language, "sex" if you are a New Zealander)
E) "ex"

Bonus points if you understand the context behind each answer :-)

Only ever heard it called V.I. (Vee-Eye) from school and conversations with other professionals. Maybe it's a regional thing. Six is clever, i suppose, but I wouldn't have known what the person was referring to unless they made it more clear. After my Unix class, in college, I've never looked back. I don't even use it on my Linux box.

The reason of my "hatred" towards Vi has the same roots with former smokers' attitude towards tobacco smoke: I'm former Vi user (and former smoker, that's why the analogue)
Of course, it is rather a joke: I'm still using Vi as a config editor and in terminal sessions, I just like Emacs more since I felt it suits me better after the first serious try, being several years Vi user to that moment.

Well, now photos:

In my ongoing effort to keep the NEX name alive. This was taken with an A6000 but it is still a NEX despite the marketing change.

This thread will never die (If I can help it)!

I think I cropped it a bit too much.

Wesley and I encountered a large number of large turkeys on our walk today. This is a composite of at least 8 photographs... they ran across the trail one at a time.
Great picture with a great lens!

Taken on NEX-7 with Tamron 10-24 (K mount). Due to no aperture ring on this lens the adapter has an open/close function to set the required adapter (as you may guess its not exactly precise but when shooting UWA I just dial it in mid way and results are normally pretty good).

A few more from my first few days with the Touit 32mm f1.8 on my NEX-5N, only a few yards from my front door I'm afraid!

Nice, although square would work much better for this shot IMO.
