Questions  - 
 
Man, I love this video. I've watched it several times because it shows both the development process and a number of interesting techniques.  Can anyone recommend any other similar videos for elisp development?
[Note: This embeds a Youtube link but is a question, hope folks don't mind me putting it in "Questions"]

Yeup.  There's some hint they won't be able to get away with it though.

OK this thing is my new favorite geektoy.  Where has this been in my life? :)

sshuttle - Transparent proxy server that works as a poor man's VPN. Forwards over ssh. Doesn't require admin. Works with Linux and MacOS. Supports DNS tunneling.

Yup, no admin rights.  And (I realize this doesn't apply to PPP over ssh) no special ports to configure.

Another G+ annoyance - I get notified all the time that people are adding me to their circles. That's not the annoyance, that's cool! Thank you for caring enough to want to read what I write.  However, unlike Twitter, 99.999% of G+ profiles are blank.  Who are you? What are you interested in? What made you interested enough in me to follow me? I'd love to know :) Please consider messaging me if you follow me and would like me to add you back.

Yeup, these services are designed to bring people together in this way, and advertising is designed to sell people crap they never needed, and I'm not really a supporter of either, though I also can't completely opt out of either.  I don't think any of us is a perfect fit for the world we find ourselves in, it's okay.

emacs will edit your your code, manage your tasks, read your mail, and... order your salad :)
 
Now you can keep on with playing M-x tetris, while Emacs orders groceries for you!

So I'm trying to learn #golang  and I've gotta admit I'm struggling with it on a conceptual level. It's a garbage collected language, why am I mucking about with things like pointers? I keep wishing it was #rust  :)

I have no strong feelings about generics and generally think that removing complexity from the language wherever possible is a good thing.

Can't recommend this movie highly enough. It truly does the book justice for a change.

Can't do 3D.  Requires two working eyes, but it was glorious in good old fashioned 2D :)

Questions  - 
 
Seems like this is a good place to ask this question, it's a bit too fuzzy for Stack Overflow or a mailing list.

Has anyone actually produced a usable slideshow presentation with Org mode's Beamer support?  I tried but it produced bulleted lists that didn't resemble anything like usable slides.

Something I could go gawk at on Github or FTP or the like would be amazing.

Sure, I could do that. I could also keep struggling along with Keynote or (shudder) Powerpoint :) The reason I explored trying to do slideshows with Beamer was that it would preserve the Org structure and create the slides automatically.

Jack is, to put it very simply, nothing short of a miracle worker. My wife and I have used him for jobs large and small through the years, and every single time he has produced nothing but utterly exemplary work. I came to him once with a pair of pants that, embarrassingly, were ripped clear through the crotch. It just so happens that these pants came from the Brooks Brothers suit I wore at my wedding. Several people thought they were a goner, but Jack fixed them up like new. For those who have taken exception to Jack's prices being a dollar or two more than they are elsewhere, I will say only that you get what you pay for, and Jack's work is worth every cent and more.
