      While the Vim Wiki is available, I find the most useful thing is
      to hang out on this mailing list -- it's like having a dozen
      masters answering the questions for apprentices. You can just
      let the stream of answers flow by, and as your skills develop,
      try to formulate your own solution to others' problems. As on
      several recent threads, you'll see several radically different
      solutions to the same problem. I tend to abuse Ex commands,
      while others often prefer scripting solutions. Seeing the range
      of solutions from others helps broaden your perspective on how to
      tackle similar problems when you encounter them in the wild.
