Posted by 142857 [send private reply] at January 03, 2003, 07:40:23 PM Hi. I'm using vi (vim, actually) and when I'm in C mode, it makes everything into different colors (like keywords, comments, etc.) to try to help me. But the colors are annoying and make it hard to read. How can I turn them off? Thanks

but thing that got me here was 142857 is the repeating block that you get when you do 1/7. now look at the fun.
2/7 = 285714 285714 285714 ...
3/7 = 428571 428571 428571 ...
4/7 = 571428 571428 571428 ...
5/7 = 714285 714285 714285 ...
6/7 = 857142 857142 857142 ..
notice anything? the numbers are always in the order 142857. you can use that to get exact results very fast when you're dividing by 7.
[ok thats a lot of bullshit, but what the hell, tell me one thing that is not a lot of bullshit]

Put that line in your .vimrc to kill them permanently.
