For some weeks I had to cope with a monochrome vim in MSYS/MinGW, which turned out to be a really horrible experience to be honest and I avoided vim as often as I could. Searching on the web did not help much, therefore I want to share the little thing with you
After reading an article on quadpoint.org I have been conﬁgured my IRSSI irc client with a highlight window as suggested by the author. Since I am running IRSSI in a screen/tmux environment, I only need to restart it when my (virtual) machine has been restarted, which is rarely the case. However, after restart, the highlight window is rarely in the right place.
