Bytebeat - A genre of electronic music created by formulas and very simple computer programs.  I had created one sometime last year, and became determined to get it down to tweetable size, command line and all.   For more examples and some nice visualizations of ones that others have created, just Google search "bytebeat", otherwise enjoy my example linked below.  Perl and the play command from the sox package are required, available on most Linux distros.

I should propose an update to the YGS "Help Me Clean Up YouTube" ending song for +Jack Douglass so that he can accept YGS submissions via G+, too. Here's a YGS IRL for ya.

New palm-tree cell tower looking like it's about to go up near my house.  Photo sphere looks like it's super-sensitive to accidental tilting.

Some random person rang my doorbell and then suddenly, Christmassy trombones across the street.  I've never had carolers before.  :)

It might have been Greenify. (The irony)  It was recently updated, and needed to re-ask for superuser permissions.  Same thing happened on my phone.  In fact, my phone's screen wasn't shutting itself off on the lock screen this morning presumably because there was a superuser prompt for Greenify waiting for me behind it.

I've used nifty stuff in /proc to get at deleted but open files, but I hadn't thought of this.  Good tip. :)
 
$ tmux attach
protocol version mismatch (client 7, server 6)

#$^#^# what now?? Aha...

$ pgrep tmux
3429
$ /proc/3429/exe attach

magic... and handy when continuing a Debian release upgrade ;)

^this. This happened to me recently, so I did the proc trick to attach my old session, just so I could save my work, shut down programs, etc. so I can restart the session new.
