Weekends are for refilling your mental and physical batteries... #Cooking some duck breast with cherry chutney, orange pickled cucumber and self made tacos. I can die happily now. 🤤
Found out about shellcheck very recently. Handy CLI helper to analyze your (ba)sh scripts.
It's pretty awesome!
Managing Git submodules is monotonous and — more importantly — interruptive work. Managing your dependencies shouldn't keep you from being productive.
I was asked to publish my submodule update script. Hope it helps. Feedback always welcome.
I've been working with #emacs for more than a month now and I'm pretty happy with it.
I have three major problems though:
1. How do you configure your tab key to behave sanely (with evil- / org-mode)?
2. I love UltiSnips as a snippet-tool in Vim. I have not yet found a decent replacement for it.
3. I'm a terminal guy and love how well Vim interacts within it. Since emacs doesn't behave too well inside a terminal, is there a way to run my whole zsh / tmux within it? 🤓(The emacs shell ignored my .zshrc)
End of day #1 of GUI development for #TagSnag in Python. I'm still torn if I really want to go down this rabbit hole...
Visual Studio Code, as most know it, is an example of non-free open-source software.
The downloads are released under the following license and not the one the source code is released under: https://code.visualstudio.com/license
The source code is modified before being compiled and then released on the VSCode website. That's why it's licensed MIT and not GPLv3, otherwise this would not be legally viable.
Try VSCodium instead: https://github.com/VSCodium/vscodium
Ich glaub, so eine Glyphosat Studie sollte jede*r in der Schublade haben. Dauert auch nur 30 Sekunden. :) Go!
iOS devices have been around for more than a decade now and I still cannot understand how people are able use them as their main productivity devices. Text selection is nothing but pain, typing sucks once your device is older than 3 years and the keyboard starts lagging und becomes unresponsive.
Calendar sync is broken since the MobileMe days when they forced pro users to manage multiple AppleIDs. It‘s only a question of time until my iPhone is thrown against a wall...
Gosh, do I hate modern #Apple and their lifestyle devices!
Woke up 50 minutes late because the alarm did not go off once again. I always have two alarms and none of them triggered. Almost missed a crucial deadline and had to write my daily mail on the iPhone on my way to the meeting:
Was about to send the mail, but wanted to attach a colleague in CC.Tabbed out of Mail, and accidentally tabbed her email address.Mail opens a new message and discards the old draft without asking or saving! WTF!?
Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.
If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.
The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice
Ignorance, incompetence, corruption.
Following politics always makes me wonder which combination of those three is the reason behind another ignorant and uneducated decision.
And in the end it shouldn't even matter because each and everyone of those should disqualify you from being a representative paid by taxes.
A twist on two #Italian classics. 🤓
"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."
- Noam Chomsky
