Links, Reviews, and Updates
While this week flew by in many respects and I only got a couple of
posts out, there is much change and progress afoot. This post is an
attempt to catalog some of the work I (and others) have been doing that
hasn’t made it onto the blog:
Discussion of the “Better Task List” post by jfm`. Including
spoilers for posts that I hope to have ready next week.
Further discussion of the
make emacs better post. I’m thinking
that it’s probably nearly time to split that into a few pages.
There’s a lot of great content there and people have added a lot. I’m
a huge fan.
Not a link, except to say that I did some fairly substantial tweaks
of the site’s design, which is probably only worth mentioning because
I suspect most people read the site on RSS. Different fonts in the
headers, and I rearranged the masthead to be a little more clean, and
changed the links a bit.
I’m in the slow process of cleaning up the Cyborg
Institute site which I’ve neglected
for far too long. I’m importing a lot of the content that I wrote
over there, notably sygn and tubmle-manager. Next up, some
straggling blog posts, and a clean up of the existing content to
match my current projects and work.
The knitting posts, which is collected separately from
rhizome posts is in full swing, and I hope to be able to post a
few things there every now and then.
There’s now a real tag index and a tag cloud that looks like
something. I’d avoided putting together a page like this for some
time, because there were a lot of junk tags and enough really big
tags that the cloud didn’t really work. I’ve mostly cleaned that up,
leaving the wiki with a rather awesome tag cloud
I’ve also found a few things on the web that I think you might enjoy on
A new blog called
observatory. I’ve been
talking to the author a bit. I realized that there aren’t very many
blogs that are so verbose. I suppose
ByteBaker is another example, but there
aren’t many of them around.
undo-tree-mode is a
nifty little emacs hack that makes undoing and redoing much less
complicated and weird. (From that make emacs better discussion.) Though I have to
admit that I no longer have a problem with the default behavior, even
if I know it’s a bit counter intuitive.
I’ve been reading Strange Horizons
more than I have in the past, thanks mostly to
instapaer and InstaFetch for
Android. I was particularly found of Genevieve Valentine’s
column/review of a glorious mess of a movie
That’s all I have for this week.
Comments Undo-tree also allows for undoing based on time (see
apparently a feature that vim has.
