vim and file extensions
I'm using 'gf' (go to file) in vim, but I would like to avoid cluttering the contents of my files with a bunch of extensions. Can I tell vim to assume an extension? Alternatively, because I am just viewing and editing plain text (no need for syntax highlighting either), is there any harm in saving without a format/extension so vim knows exactly which file to go to?

unix-style text search question/help
I want to begin using command line utilities to query a directory of markdown files for things like: a) the number of instances of a given string, b) the number of files with one or more instances of a given string, c) a # of chars after a given string in a given file, among others. I know sed/awk/grep may be a place to start but I'm not sure how to narrow that set of features to the above use case. Any help/direction on some useful concepts or tools?
@luxpris is making my day with the really excellent art and music recommendations. well worth checking out.
Someone in town mentioned something like "problems you can work on while away from the keyboard" recently.
I'm interested in generalizing that to problems you can work on regardless of the context. Issues that are concisely conveyed and require solutions that are not dependent on rout labor, but on novel applications of technique or mechanic. Is there a name for these?

@jakechvatal If your only fear with C is that it will take you longer to make things, try to find ways to accept that things take a while and be less in a hurry. You can't have smol computing and be in a hurry, they're incompatible.
