I could’ve written a novel with all the keystrokes

In other words if you printed all the vim commands I typed, on Earth’s equator in 15pt font, you would get a very repetitive string printed on Earth’s equator line (which could no way be seen from outer space).

$ history | awk '{a[$2]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}' | sort -rn | head
2673 vim
1475 cd
694 screen
632 make
475 man
329 ls
261 grep
231 cg-diff
161 aoss
149 cg-patch

The numbers sum to > 1000 because I use HISTSIZE=”10000″ and HISTCONTROL=”ignoredups” in my bashrc.
