GVim and Firefox together

I was curious about the structure of a web page and, did what I do dozens of times every week, right-clicked and selected View Page Source. However, in this case the web page was horribly complex and had all of the white space removed. I needed something more than the built-in Firefox/Iceweasel source viewer. After a little configuration I was able to bring GVim to the rescue. This is how I did it.

Goodbye Scotsman

I don't remember when I first started reading The Scotsman, it was always just there. Every day, around midday, the newspaper would arrive. The paper was folded twice, lengthways, and around the middle would be a slip of paper with our address on it and a stamp. It was delivered by the postie[1]. As we lived many miles from the nearest shop it was easier, cheaper and more convenient to have a newspaper account at the nearest shop who would then bundle and post it.

Legacy

David Cameron is lucky he has one of the most mementous events in the 300 year history of the Kingdom of Great Britain to happen during his first term in office. All David Cameron has to do is handle the situation competently and his place in history is assured. However, securing your place in history is only the first part of the job, achieving a favourable write-up is even more difficult.
