The alt-text that gits me. I now apologize to every one I've every sat down and drawn git graphs when all you asked was for the command to do whatever you needed. Also, I'm slightly ashamed to admit that I (very rarely) have used the solution presented in the comic to fix some weird stuff in a git repo...

More people watch the League of Legends championship than the NBA finals. Advertising to eSports fans also tends to be lucrative - 22% of eSports fans open their wallets at some point. You have a very captive and targeted audience. I myself am a part of that - my last major computer purchase was made after seeing a good deal in a Twitch ad.

My favorite feature of Google Inbox: press 'm' to mute thread.

Tmux trick of the day: monitor-content. I've used monitor-activity for some time to alert me whenever something changes in another tmux window and it works great. However sometimes I have a window which is constantly active, but only occasionally does something I want to look at right away. For example, I might have a long running script with lots of output and I only need to look at it if it logs an error or something. I also tend to keep a window for irc and I only need to be alerted if someone uses my name in chat. For this type of alert, I've just discovered monitor-content, which lets you give an fnmatch pattern string to watch for. You can then set up alerts in just the way you do with monitor-activity, and get alerts only on content you care about.

Biggest annoyance since I've started using a macbook: command-w to close a tab is right next to command-q to close the whole bloody application. Whoever thought that was a good idea needs to be flogged.

This is a rather clever commercial for Cat products.

Storing large binary files isn't really the best use case for git, but I do it anyway with data that both changes occasionally and needs to be easily backed up. This practice rather quickly leads to horribly bloated repositories (which leads to lots of other annoying problems), but in the end git is just so convenient that I don't care. For people like me, this git extension seems amazing. I can't wait to get GitHub.com support.

Vim plugin of the day: vim-easymotion

I've been trying to become more efficient in my vim motions (as opposed to hitting kkkkkkkkkkkk or jjjjjjjjjjjjjj to move around).  Adding in relative line numbers helps, but for more precise movement, I've really come to like vim-easymotion. Rather than having to figure out a number and then enter movement, you trigger easymotion (default is <leader><leader>) hit a motion, and then hit an easily identifiable letter to specify how far you want to go with that motion (if you've used vimium in your browser, its like that). It ends up being about the same number of keystrokes, and in my opinion is much easier for making precise movements. I think I'm finally ready to vim-molasses plugin.

My kids often get sick and always fight going to bed. Then we started using essential oils, and now they still get sick and insist on staying up even later! >_>

"Using this authority, I am submitting to my colleagues the strongest open internet protections ever proposed by the FCC. These enforceable, bright-line rules will ban paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services. I propose to fully apply—for the first time ever—those bright-line rules to mobile broadband. My proposal assures the rights of internet users to go where they want, when they want, and the rights of innovators to introduce new products without asking anyone’s permission."

Assuming that the details of the proposal actually match what Tom Wheeler claims, this is amazing! Of course this is just a proposal, so the fight for net neutrality is far from over, but this is still good news.
