  FreeBSD Tips              
When you've made modifications to a file in vi(1) and then find that
you can't write it, type ``!rm -f \%'' then ``:w!'' to force the
write

This won't work if you don't have write permissions to the directory
and probably won't be suitable if you're editing through a symbolic link.
