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!
Several weeks ago I wrote about scripting a tmux session’s initialization. At the end of the post I mentioned that while writing it, I had learned about tmuxinator. I even teased that it looked so good, I may switch to it eventually. Well… that didn’t take long. I’ve scrapped my tmux shell scripts, and have converted to using tmuxinator. Here’s how.
I have been using neofetch as my command-line system information tool for a few years now. While browsing /r/unixporn, I noticed that several of the submissions did not have distro logos in their neofetch/screenfetch ascii art. I knew that neofetch was customizable, but have never dug into it myself. So I decided to change that.
