Strange first post

I thought I would try to write something special for my first post since I moved from kdedevelopers.org, but I just stumbled upon a nice vim trick I want to remember. Hopefully you will like it too.

What I ignored for a long time was how to insert new lines in the to field. Now I know. You need to use \r, like this:
:%s/from/one line\ranother line/
Great, isn't it?
