gvim survival tip, visual block mode

Thanks to jerald got around the frustrating CTRL+v doing the normal GUI pasting within gvim when I was really wanting to enter vi “visual mode”

Control q to the rescue :)

I used it for commenting block of code:
CTRL-q  (Go in visual mode)

jjjjj  (move cursor)

I   (shift eye to insert)

#   (comment character)

ESC (Escape, writes out)

Awesome, thanks jerald!
