FYI, all:

Just had my first ever criminal robocall. Some machine called my cell phone, told me my debit card had been locked, and asked me to enter my debit card number via my phone's keypad.

I don't use my debit card. It isn't locked.

I'm on Verizon. The Caller ID showed the number was "7777."

Can I ask vim to detect if it's being invoked from guake?

I have set in my .vimrc:
    set lines=50 columns=120

This is nice if I'm in a terminal window, but it does odd things if I invoke vim from guake. (It causes scrolling problems, cuts off the first few lines of the file, a couple of other strange things.)

As a workaround, I've sent my guake window to 50 lines and 120 columns, but I'd prefer that vim ignore the setting in guake.

Thank you for any assistance.

How to make a flight delay a joy.

I learned this today. Who says advanced math isn't useful?

If a pizza has a radius "z" and thickness "a", then its volume can be defined as =pi(zz)a.

I wonder how these work. :)

Write to your Representative and ask them to support this bill, please. It would require that states recognize a non-resident's carry permit, much like they recognize drivers' licenses now.
