Native-comp all packages in #emacs:
(native-compile-async "~/.emacs.d/elpa" t)
Two motivations for me: it was hard to compare performance because the compilation would often kick in when you used a new mode, and for some reason some modes (eg helm-command) didn't seem to get compiled.
@technomancy Oops, I meant to include the reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_Scenes_from_New_York
@technomancy An album cover with the twin towers in flames, released on 9/11, has to be up there too!
I've made massive strides on CapTP for @spritelyproject and honestly, I think this is the most important work I've done in my life. But it's hard to explain *why* when few people even know what CapTP *is*.
So: CapTP explainer 🧵, right here (with blogpost to follow):
#Emacs: I just discovered helm-ucs (and its regexp builder), thanks to Mastering Emacs and a renewed looking around.
@technomancy My keyboardio atreus finally arrived yesterday, and I'm very excited to get stuck into it!
#Emacs: I use a snapshot build, which is generally solid but does occasionally change things. Recently I've noticed that my helm completions (mostly M-x and recent buffers) had duplicates, but I never got around to debugging why. Now I don't need to! https://tech.toryanderson.com/2020/08/24/helm-duplicates-history/
(Don't want to click; set the new-in-27.1 variable history-delete-duplicates to t)
@cadadr I moved to a paid subscription to Newsblur when Google Reader shut down. I just use the web client, and it's fine for me. I could host my own server and use elfeed, but I don't begrudge the money to take it off my hands.
Common Lisp; this is cute:
Oh wait, M-x tab-bar-mode does that, without nuking your tabs. Sold.
Every time I hear about Emacs and tabs I've thought "who cares?" and never looked further. Thanks to Mickey Peterson's latest summary though (https://www.masteringemacs.org/article/whats-new-in-emacs-27-1), I finally tried... and it's actually quite good! I have a lightly-customised escreen configuration I use, but I might just replace it with tabs (particularly if I can figure out how to toggle display of the tab-bar itself).
All I use escreen for is windows and different stacks of recent buffers, so I'm not hard to please.
I just randomly started (did NOT finish) cleaning out or fixing broken feeds in Newsblur.
1. Wow I subscribe to a lot of feeds.
2. Good lord do links bitrot. Without hard data, I'd say 50/50 the site just disappeared vs blogging software changed and the feed URL with it (a depressing number seem to be on Medium)
"DRM is a bit like ransomware, in that it encrypts data and demands payment to un-encrypt (decrypt) it. The main difference between DRM and ransomware is that ransomware is less particular about which files it encrypts — while #DRM (usually) only affects files that you legitimately purchased." ~ figosdev
Having said that, I did manage to overlook that exporting my follow-list and re-importing was also required.
My hobby project (to eventually involve ActivityPub) is in Elixir, and I'm loving this deep dive: https://www.evanmiller.org/elixir-ram-and-the-template-of-doom.html
First post: moved account from mastodon.social (with no posts) to .technology, since that's what I'm hoping to focus on here.
I had to read the docs a few times, but loving that this is possible: https://docs.joinmastodon.org/user/moving/#migration
