In the spirit of documenting weird bugs I run into so that other people can find them, it turns out Ubuntu 14.04 added some input method switcher which uses Ctrl-space to switch between input methods, which unfortunately is also a key #emacs hotkey. So if you're going insane wondering why you can't select text in emacs, that's why.

Using a programmable text editor and window manager is truly beautiful. I just put together a little thing that takes my currently clocked-in #emacs OrgMode todo item and writes it to a file[1], and then puts that text in my #awesomewm wibox (sort of like the Windows taskbar, but completely scriptable). Solves the occasional problem of walking away from the computer and then forgetting what I was working on when coming back, and also encourages me to use OrgMode to track time spent on different projects.

This is pretty handy. Matlab OOP still sucks, but this is handy.
