I always found turps and a lighter fixes most things. Just not if you want to use them again.

Just found this somewhat older post that compares text editors to LotR places. Hillarious (and accurate)
Prompted by a passing thought about TextMate, I thought I'd make a comprehensive, accurate, unbiased, and irrefutable survey of text editors by way of comparison to locations in The Lord of the Rings. TextMate: Minas Tirith. image. A once-great but now decaying city. Only the King has the power ...

Just noticed: using #emacs (#spacemacs) dired to delete files, actually Trashes them, such that they are linked to the #freedesktop Trash (used by, for example KDE Trash).
That's so cool. Oh, and Mac OS X doesn't miss out, if you enable the osx layer.

This is a fascinating conversation. I'm not an expert in either art (though I have done a very little bit of Kumdo introductory practice under my former TKD master). I find myself siding with Bruce.

It's also interesting to reflect on this argument, and draw parallels between arguments about BSD vs AT&T Unix (or indeed Mac OS and GNU and their differing sensibilities, which is much like the differences of sword etiquette between Kendo and Kumdo: what's Right for one just doesn't apply to the other).

I'm facing a semi-imposed move to Mac OS X later this year, from openSUSE. It's not being forced: I am free to install openSUSE on the Apple hardware if I want, but I'm thinking now that I can just go with Mac OS X and think of it as a cultural journey.

Copy.com to discontinue their cloud drives by 1 May

Oh Noes! Well, I get what I pay for, I suppose ;-)

Anyway, looks like the best "just works", free alternative is now MEGA. (mega.nz)

Switching was easy, don't use the Microsoft "solution" peddled by copy's site:

On your master computer (Linux PC):
1. sign up (50G for free, more than twice Copy's free account size)
2. download client installer (clients come in popular Linux flavours, including recent openSUSE, but you'll need to install the lib dependency manually if you haven't got it -- command line FTW)
3. launch client, login
4. copy (locally) from Copy directory to MEGA directory
5. Let the client upload/sync to cloud

Then on your other machines (comlink, pad, Windows, Macintosh):
1. Download the client, install
2. launch, login
3. Let it sync fully, or control what's synced.

Microsoft Exchange.... ugh. I can't even.... why? Why did it do this to me??

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

and then a big base64 email chain.

if it's text/plain, why then are you encoding it????!

Fortunately I have emacs and/or unix tools... but many people don't.

I should look at this soon...
 
Three minutes can mean a world of difference, especially if you work at a computer all day.
Three minutes and three simple exercises are all it takes to improve your posture, and this video shows you all of them. Considering how many of us sit in front of screens or at keyboards all day, just a quick time out for a few stretches can do a world of good. All you need to do them is a wall.

Playing with Spacemacs. It is glorious Unix Editor holy war blasphemy! I may actually ditch ergoemacs for a while and start using this to convert to Modal thinking?! I still think vi modes are fundamentally Evil and broken, yet I'm often using vim at work, primitive though it is. My mind is blown and my beliefs challenged. Awesome stuff

Introduction

I'm just this guy, you know? 
 
I am a family man, father of three lovely boys. Happily married for 15 years, currently living in Hobart, Tasmania. I play musical instruments (Trombone/Timpani/Traps) and I hold a 2nd Dan ("black belt") in Taekwondo. I like Open Architecture computers, Open Source software, and Open Crown hats. Akubra, of course :D

On a professional level, I am a Computer Applications Support Engineer, focusing on the application of technology to business functions in finance and government, and bridging between the Developer, BA/QA  and Systems worlds, which I've been doing since before there was a "DevOps" movement. I have worked with major I.T. firms as well as a government owned forest management organisation. I am an experienced cat herder and specialize in fitting round pegs to square holes. Handy in a tight squeeze to help get that late project of yours over the line.

My strengths include systems administration and automation, configuration management, database design, development and implementation, change management, incident response and root-cause analysis. I know a very little about an awful lot of tech' -- enough to shoot myself in the foot and take a leg off. People seem to think this makes me a good person to come to when they are in a bind.

So far I've delivered.
