I'm starting to notice something similar now that I've been doing more Javascript programming. For example, the dot-notation for objects/references is really taking over my finger memory. The lack of sigils in Javascript is messing me up, as well, when I return to the Mothership.

I notice it again when moving back and forth between gvim and textareas in browsers. 0wc newtext[ESC] doesn't seem to work in Firefox ...

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    When it comes to sigils I'm doing the oposite. I keep using them in my JavaScript and VB. And often even adding ; at the end of lines of the VB code.

    Maybe it's because I spend most time with Perl and MS SQL, both using sigils for their variables.
