Setting Up a .vimrc File

The `.vimrc` file lets us describe which settings we want Vim to utilize upon opening. These are the same settings we can run manually in Vim, just compiled into a configuration file to be used by Vim. In this lab, we'll create a basic `.vimrc` file to be used by the `cloud_user`.
