> do you have any good vim plugins or dot file stuff to share?

For Vim newbies, I usually recommend trying Janus:
It does some things that I find annoying, but it gives you a lot out
of the box and should be comfortable for TextMate refugees.

I should probably separate my vim config from the rest of my dot
files, but it's all on github: https://github.com/ccg/dotfiles
There's an install script, but it sets up a whole bunch of things besides Vim.

The main thing is to use Tim Pope's pathogen to make it easier to deal
with plugins. A few specific plugins that are worth trying:

* pyflakes.vim (static analysis for python; even gives you the red
squiggly underline in gvim when it detects a problem)

* Surround.vim (http://www.catonmat.net/blog/vim-plugins-surround-vim/)

* NERDTree (a folder & file tree in a sidebar)

* NERDCommenter

Also, exuberant-ctags works with Python and Vim (Ctrl-] to jump to the
definition of whatever is under the cursor, Ctrl-T to jump back).

There's even a Chicago Vim meetup: http://www.meetup.com/Vim-Chicago/
