When I repeatedly inserting at the beginning of a line it is problematic because the cursor ends up in the middle of the line so I have to move back to the beginning of the line each time. So, for example, if I am commenting lines then might do something like
i##_<ESC> to comment the line, then I have to do
j^ to get back to the beginning of the next line before pressing dot to do a repeat.
Is there any way to simplify this? In particular I don't like having to type the hat to get to the beginnning of the line.
