But once the most common commands are mastered, one gets to enjoy the sheer power of this editor made available at ones finger tips. And there are an ever growing group of Vi enthusiasts around (myself included) who swear by it over other text editors. The modern avatar of Vi is Vim (VI iMproved) created by Bram Moolenaar and released as an open source software package. VIM is an excellent vi clone with a slew of additional features and which can be further enhanced and modified using scripts.

amule doesn't work anymore!!!

Hola everyone!
I installed aMule one month ago , (never used eMule, I hate computers before discovering linux world) and it worked really good. When I set the donw and upload limits very high I could transfer till 400-500k!
So a pity , it resisted just 3 days and then crashed down, first my amule could just upload and suddenly it could nor connect.
I searched in the forum several times and as I didn't found nothing similar I finally decided to post this.
I don't know, maybe that's me that I'm so stupid.......I recentl uploaded the last ubuntu's version and aMule 2.1.2 . It say " not valid server founded in server list" and "not connected:kad off"
I just put this server list but it doesn't work: http://ocbmaurice.dyns.net/pl/slist.pl?download/server-best.met
what should I do?
