OK, now this is geeky, but I needed to share it. Take your iPad and add a VNC client (I added Remoter, which is 99 cents of bugginess). Now use your iPad with a BT keyboard and connect the VNC client to a Mac Lion machine - or VM. Start up iTerm on the host and VIM away…

Vim over VNC

This image may look a little ugly, but Remoter doesn’t seem to hang on to my keyboard unless I have the onscreen keyboard up. Luckily, you can just alpha it away…

I wanted to see how snappy this would be using an iPad over my iPhone Personal Hotspot sharing… and it’s kind of nice! Now I need a stand for the iPad.

I also need to stay within VIM or iTerm2 when doing git checkins. I haven’t really tried fugitive.vim, because gitx is so nice. I think I’ll have to give it a shot.
