for all of those asking me about it, this is a loooong post (and I still held back much of the details).. @ashfurrow (I think you were curious...?)

You'd think a standing desk is not a big deal. I know I did. As it turns out though, it's actually a huge positive change.

here's my story: joshrollinswrites.com/help-des

I know my partner will stab me if I rant too long about or but at least I can rush out of my room excitedly and tell him "the css display in line thing doesn't work because the element is on a different div!" and he totally gets me. Geeks rule.

I have now published my new blog :D
It is based around #orgmode, built using #emacs #elisp and hosted at #hcoop.net which made the journey setting it up fun and educational.

Details are described in the first post: hoowl.se/bloggingwithemacs.htm

First time I actually follow through on my plans of creating a blog, so I am very exciting and so far enjoy the process of writing. I think I will go for #100DaysToOffload as soon as I have a few more ideas on my backlog :)

Working on my CSS to fix my horrible phone-screen scale template. It's a head scratcher and takes time, but I hope more people will be able to read the blog without running away screaming.

@ashfurrow curious, especially because you got the Ergo recently: are you one of those standing desk users? I've had mind for 2 weeks, and man, it is awesome.

Elfeed + MPV + YouTube = a match meant to be made.

A new blog post: How Emacs and its awesome Elfeed keeps me updated without all the adds and junk.

I'm don't have years of experience with Emacs or programing. So where I manage to learn how to change color or tweak a font to my liking, it's a big deal. Here's how I changed my org-mode colors to work better for me:

problem:

This has been an issue since I started using org, pretty much:

When working in org, usually with refile, sometimes headers "disapear" and only
the arrow (which is my version of org elipses) show. I can fix this by killing the line (C-k) from before the arrow and yanking again. When I do t hat it pastes with the missing headings folded as they should have.

Anyone experienced this? What's the issue?

re-discovering elfeed in and starting to really like it. Anyone's getting rss feeds from here? Mastodon? Can share how it works for them?

I must have learned more in the last 2 days ("vacation") then I have in the last month at work. Can't even start writing it all. But I guess I can show you some of it on my blog...

Comments welcome :-)

I'm trying to start emacs with eww-open-file. To do that, I type $emacs -q -f eww-opne-file [path].

However, this opens up the file browser, not the file I want specifically. why?

(-q because I have initial buffer disabled)

Dear Apple,

Urging medical students to update to Catalina and remove JAMF profiles from their 5-year old MBA that can barely handle the HIPAA-required anti virus program, affectively ruining our remote-support software (32 bits...) To help them, is *NOT* a good idea. Ok?? Thank you.
