Last month, I wrote about my switch to Joplin
for both my personal and work notes. While I enjoyed many features in Joplin, I
also had a few concerns about using the system long-term for all my notes.
As of last week, I am still using Joplin for all of my personal notes, but have switched
org-mode for my notes at work. Why?
At the beginning of summer, I was entertaining the idea of improving my wife’s computer setup by adding a new external monitor. She agreed. As a result, we have purchased, recieved, and even mounted, the LG 32QK500w monitor. Here are my thoughts.
As a massive fan of emacs’s
org-mode, it should be no surprise that I’ve been using
it for my personal and work planning/notes over the last few years. However,
as my daily emacs usage has slowly dropped, and the support for
outside of emacs remains low (other than Github README
files), I started
to look for a more standard system. The last few months, I’ve been using
Joplin. Here are my thoughts.
The past few years I have watched the South East Linux Fest (SELF) from a distance, often via listreams run by Jupiter Broadcasting and/or the Ask Noah Show. Last year, I decided to finally travel to Charlotte for SELF 2018. While my wife and I did drive down to North Carolina that weekend, it was instead to Durham… with a moving truck. This year, being only two hours away, I decided there was no excuse. I did a day-trip…. but I went. I’m glad I did.
RAM is fun. If a computer has extra memory, it can be used for fun beyond opening extra chrome tabs, or firing up Slack. Want to mount a partition that is fast and can be entirely wiped out just by rebooting? Or are you just bored (guilty)? Regardless of the reason, lets create and mount a RAM-disk!
