I need to revisit my vimrc stuff... Lots of new goodies in the last few years... I'm sure I'm missing out on something...

Sweet. That'll really look sharp. A relatively cheap way to do it is rough sawn board and batten pine. We are doing this on the Mississippi Valley Conservation building out in Carleton Place on Hwy 7. Check it out the next time you are out there. It'll look pretty rustic which is what I think you are going for.

Ugh... Locked out of GMAIL again.... Really, I just wish there was a way to find out why they locked it.. Something a little more specific than:

1.Receiving, deleting, or downloading large amounts of mail via POP or IMAP in a short period of time.
2.Sending a large number of messages to many people.
3.Being logged into or synchronizing Gmail on many computers, clients, or mobile devices.
4.Browser-related issues. If you find your browser continually reloading while attempting to access your Inbox, it’s probably a browser issue, and it may be necessary to clear your browser’s cache and cookies.
5.Providing access to file-sharing, file-storage software, email analytics services, browser extensions, or third party software that automatically logs in to your Gmail account.

As far as I can see, I (or any of my copmuters haven't done any of 1, 2, or 3. My browser has been loading all evening, working fine...

And according to google.com/accounts, nothing has access to my google account (which requires 2-factor auth) except google...

Getting really sick of Google locking my mail account... It might be time to abandon Google apps for my domain and go back to just running my own mail services.

The most frustrating part is their completely useless information on why.... Nothing remotely useful....

Google locked my mail account again...  2 weeks in a row...  With no way to get any indication of why?  This is what they link to:

Ugh....

A Nexus4 is looking like a seriously bad idea right now....

I just discovered that terminal IDE on my N7 actually has tmux installed... I don't know why I didn't check for that sooner...

tmux http://tmux.sourceforge.net/ is mighty useful; allows creating multiple terminal sessions that can be attached and detached.  The older thing that's analogous is GNU Screen.  http://www.gnu.org/software/screen/

So, last week I decide it's time to get a Nexus4.  This morning, in the time it took me to travel from home to work, google locked my gmail account....

Maybe a Nexus4 isn't such a good idea....

Yes, mine fell only a few feet as well. Gorilla glass is great if you are hitting it on the surface, but a small nick on the side will result in a cracked screen or worse as above. These phones might as well come with cases
