Keep Vi Swp File in Tmp

vi is my editor of choice when I need to do some quick editing.

When vi edits a file, it will usally create a swp file for recovery purpose. Usually it causes no problem.

But apparently octopress does not work when there is temporry file in the post directory. Rake will emit

rake aborted!
No such file or directory - public/_posts/.2013-06-29-example.markdown.swp

and then bailed.

I added

set backupdir=~/tmp

to my .vimrc. Hopefully it will prevent this problem from happening again.
