Coming back to vim
It’s time for my monthly or so post! I wanted to go through and post about my OpenBSD firewall I built but that’s not 100%. Also I’m not ready to go on about anything amazing with puppet because without my lab being done puppet isn’t useful so lets go back to talking about my dev environment!
I know Justin has been asking for this for a little while.
Preface: Going “back” to vim As a sysadmin at work I use vi a lot.
Update to my Transmission Tools
Nope, not something to help unmount and flush your transmissions, it’s some tools for Transmission, specifically MY tools.
I just though I would share that I redid this repository completely and cleaned up the Move & Stop script to cover some possible bugs and be a bit more python modern. If you had any problems with it not moving single files or just wanted some slightly cleaner code go grab the new version.
Now who would have thought, I start blogging about git and people have advice. This post isn’t just my personal learning but also some advice I received from others!
git reset HEAD^ From Alexis: Something I’m doing a lot is when I mess up with git, I sometimes need to uncommit something but keep the changes I had just before the commit.
git add -i From Alexis: “Use this…” Brief but powerful advice.
Honing my Git-Fu Part 1
Backstory My git-fu sucks. I have to use an awesome git tool called SourceTree to do the git wizardry that I do. It’s totally free and for the Mac so if you want to just jump into git and have expert features clicks away go download this. I bought it back when it cost money but now you can have it for free. I’ll wait…
Anyways, I’ve been rolling around in the lap of GIT/SourceTree luxury these past months; clicking away and using features I only wished SVN could ever touch.
More Pelican, or how I learned to stop worrying and start developing with others.
Pelican 3.0 is almost out the door now. It’s been great working on a “real” project with other developers for what is, in retrospect, the first time ever.
Some programmers I know would rather fork a project and trudge off into the snow with the code base, then fork off their own leg and write their way back before working on someone else’s code; I think at some point I caught that same fever from someone close to me.
A little thank you goes a long way
Things like this happen sometimes
:::irc [4:27 PM] <SnowLprd> tBunnyMan: Nice work on #389. I can see how that will come in handy. :^) [4:27 PM] <tBunnyMan> Thanks! [4:28 PM] <tBunnyMan> I really just wanted a 404 and 50x error that matched my theme... but making it more extensible helps everyone [4:28 PM] <tBunnyMan> I just need to finish this test case for it when work stops being annoying [4:29 PM] <SnowLprd> Nice of you to generalize it for everyone, despite only needing it yourself for 404/50x errors.
My Contribution to Calibre
Backstory When I bought my NOOK Simple Touch™ in January of this year I rediscovered calibre E-book management. While software always felt clunky in Mac OS X you could never deny it’s power and sheer amazing once you got past the UI.
Being a big fan of ReadItLater I immediately tried to have the program pump my massive reading list into my Nook. To my dismay I discovered that the plugin was hardly complete.
