SwiftScript Vim syntax file

One weekend I was reading an article howto made a Vim syntax file. In application I decided to make one for the Swift workflow system. Most of the script contains simple word matches for some Swift keywords. Then I copied the matching rules for comments from the C syntax files in the standard Vim distribution. For a preview, checkout the screenshot below which uses the desert256.vim colorscheme in a gnome-terminal:

The syntax file can be downloaded from my graduate student code-shanty page.

Pasting Excel Charts in Word via Crossover Linux

Pasting a chart from MS Excel 2007 to Word 2007 will yield a To insert a chart, you must first close any open dialog boxes or cancel editing mode in Microsoft Office Excel error.  This bug is found in Crossover Linux Pro v8.0.0.  I assume that this will also occur in publicly available versions of Wine.

An alternative solution aside from booting to Windows is to use the Paste Special feature. Paste it as a Picture (Enhanced Metafile). This will preserve the vector information of the chart so zooming in and out of the document object wont’ be a problem.
