2019 03 March 2019 03 08 I’ve acquired an Ergodox-ez keyboard. It’s defiantly going to take some getting used to. I’ve also survived the latest rackspace layoff, I wasn’t concerned but many have expressed interest in knowing 02 February 2019 02 28 I’ve found the Major Slow down of my Emacs Setup. mu4e I gave it a year of good use but it still falls short of what mutt will do, and mutt’s speed is amazing I was reading Major Hayden’s Blog again and saw that he’s using I3 Window manager and went and checked out their page.
While searching around github today I came across a plugin for mu4e that is bringing mail closer to what I had with mutt. I switched away from mutt to bring all mail into emacs (spacemacs must have my Vim bindings). mu4e handles maildir and multiple account very well. As well as using Xapian to index the mail, making it’s searching extremely fast. I was missing Tagging though. Which brings me to mu4e-goodies There are two repos in github so make sure to check out the linked repo that belongs to panjie.
Initial Well I’ve now learned what having a kidney stone feels like. I cannot say that I ever really wanted to know. Saturday morning Sep 22nd I woke at 3 am with abdominal Pain and nausea. After trying to live through it till Sunday Morning, when I checked into the ER. Had a CT and Blood work. The CT showed a 10mm Stone. YAY!? I was Wheeled up to surgery where they put in a stint.
I am really getting sick of this circus. The “left”, “liberal”, “democrat”, or whatever they are called. Narrative brainwashed repeaters of non-truisms. I just read Dennis Prager’s Article on why the left is entitled to ignore decency. and I have a few questions. In the Picture there are people with signs and shirts with statements like. “Women strike back”.. seems to me to be a first strike scenario here. “We will not be silent”.
Heading to San Antonio for a Corp visit So I’m headed to San Antonio the last week of September to visit corp HQ for Rackspace and visit friends that I haven’t see in a year, since moving back to Chicago Marty
SO! I was practicing last night and started the session as I always do by tuning. A string was a bit flat so I started to increase the tension, and nothing… so I released tension to tighten back into the proper 440 A. and the string falls out of the bridge. What The ‘Fargin Bastages’? Yea after attempting to restring the pin falls out of the tuning key. AAAAAH NO!
Hate monger and misandrist Whoopie Goldberg in true form of the moronic left, Showed how when one cannot win an argument one shuts it down. She and the rest of the cast of “The View” summarily told “goodbye” to Judge Jeanine Pirro tried to bring up an apposing point to the rhetoric that they usually spout. In My opinion the Least that can be done is cancel this show for it’s misadrist and racial Bias.
Info Moving the Blog over to Jekyll for Blogging. I can keep up with Emacs (Spacemacs) to do most everything. ## Emacs (Spacemacs) I’ve been using vi/vim for years and I was introduced to Spacemacs, the bridge between Emacs and vim (evil) I’ve found the Emacs ecosystem to be very alive and busy. Where has this been all my time on computers? Well right in front of my face! I had missed this Huge advantageous system of editor, IDE, mail, news reader, PIM, etc.
