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?

Just like last time, turns out writing these tutorials is a looooooooong process. Here's a bit of a taste attached.

I wonder how many here are interested? Is this something you guys care about?

Did you know you can send sms with KDE connect from terminal, *without* being texted first?

Basic (I hope) question to you guys today.

I'm having a problem on my new Desktop setup where I have an annoying too-wide margin to the right of the frame when writing long form (posts, journal entries, etc.).

I tried to play with fill-column width, just to learn that the line would break at the end of the specified character limit, as seen in the picture.

This drive me nuts.

How can I get nice fluid lines fill the frame, border to border? I forgot. Global visual-lines is on.

I really enjoy my new camera and the photos I'm taking. I've been mostly blogging org and tech. Would it be a good combo? Is there a good photography mastodon?

Here are some pics:

@kaushalmodi wrong. the *new* index at the /docs folder shows me a list of headers from my org file, instead of the table of contents that it used to show.

So the problem is that hugo did not generate that listof (I think that's what it's called) as it should. Any idea why?

@kaushalmodi So... I now want to merge with magit, and I have a conflict. I opened the log and it tells me I have a conflict in my site .org files (where I write the posts), and that it failed auto-merging. It wants me to resolve... what does it mean, "resolve". Do I go in there and just save it after I make sure it looks like what I want, or is there another copy of a file somewhere I need to delete first..?

I'm reading up, but I thought I'd send you a message also see what you have to say.

So far, a good self-care weekend: a nap in the afternoon yesterday, and now finishing a walk in the warm weather.

@kaushalmodi I'm revisiting the issue with magit now.

I think this is the view of everything in details in the image below.

I don't particularly care about CSS_Post_explain, this is a short paragpraph explaining what's the hold up. The local master (at 4ca7721) is where I want it to be - this is where I applied changes to my CSS.

Now what I want to do is to be able to keep working on that, while my blog online remains the same. [1/2]

@kaushalmodi @emsenn

so seems like I branched with magit correctly, and I checked out into the new branch. Next, downloaded hermit (my theme) zip, and unzipped it into my hugo theme sites. OK.

Now, I want to push this branch to github, just so everything is synced. I want hugo to still work off my master (which I think it will do anyway).

pushing: P p doesn't work, says "nothing to push". I'm not sure what it wants from me hmmm.

Opened windows today to work on something for work. Greeted by the helpful ribbon in File Explorer.

Wow. Who's doing Microsoft's GUI?! What are they smoking? I forgot how horrible it is!

The best invention of this GUI - the ability to minimize it out of sight.

See kids, that's what desperation of falling stocks do to a company. Steve Jobs is probably going to come out of the grave and choke Tim Cook with his bare zombie hands.

Again I was trying to fix my template in , but kept getting defeated by other technical issues in the way. This is a pattern. I need to vent (it's part of the process) so I just posted the follwing:

This. You know how easy it is? So easy that you set it once, and that's it. It works. I don't care if stole some of the best features, they make sure the bad ones stay out.

I don't know why it's only considered a "n00b" distro. I just switch back to it and I love so many things about it. It's stable (not a single crash yet), no pushy updates, and completely free. You can't beat that... just can't.
