Remap the function keys on the wireless keyboard

Absolutely.
And if you have Developer Tools installed, it would be better to use Property List Editor to edit it.
Even pico is more user friendly than vi.

If you're not the type of person who's already somewhat comfortable with vi, then chances are reasonable that you shouldn't be doing this hint...

FunctionFlip might be a better way to go, if the suggestion to use vi is going to cause an issue.


Disclaimer: have used vi and vim extensively for about 14 years :-)
Nano is pleasant and simple and a great tool for what it is, but it can't do a even a fraction of what vi can do.

Agreed! I was afraid of vi/vim for years. Last Christmas break, with some time to spare, I sat down and made myself learn to use it, as I often find myself on a *nix box with no pico or nano (or GUI). I'm glad I did it, as I now love it. I even use MacVim for most of my text editing needs these days.
