Portacle. Pretty cool, but it’s just Emacs with some fancy wrapping.

Are there any good, fast, native OS X Slack clients with support for multiple teams?

How I use my Fujifilm x100.

April 19, 2018

I got my X100T when I was a Canon shooter. And then a year later it died, and I replaced it with a X-Pro 2. The result was that I did not use the X100 that much. Mainly because I prefer the X-Pro in more or less every way.

Then I started to use the X100 again. I just leave it in the office, with batteries and a 16GB card. To take snapshots. For, you know all the times you want to take a picture, but the big camera is somewhere else.

My GitHub effort.

April 18, 2018

I have a shit load of code on my computer. Most of it is either in use or used to be in use; and was made to solve some kind of problem I wanted to solve.

I have made an effort over the last year or so to make sure that as much of possible of the code I have laying around on my system is on GitHub in a form where it is useable to other people.

Why? I don’t know. Most of it was because I wanted to have more stuff there, I guess. And because it might be usable for someone.

It is also a good exercise to get into writing code that don’t need to be rewritten to be used by other people

Meditation

April 17, 2018

I have been trying to get into meditation for years. Reading countless books and blogposts about it. But it wasn’t before I started to use the Headspace app this year that I got into it. The guided content they have are really awesome. No focus on all the weird stuff like sitting is not a part of it.

One of the things that always was hard to understand from my previous attempt was what was optional and what was the meditation. Like all the weird sitting stuff.

I haven’t done micro Monday in a while, and I won’t today either. The reason is that I don’t want to just tell you guys to follow someone most of you already follow. But I’m going to spend more time in the discovery section and see if it leads me anywhere.

Promise.prototype.finally

April 16, 2018

We finally have a finally method on promises.

Previously we had the .then and .catch methods on promises, you deal with a success in the .then and errors in .catch. But often you have some code you want to run no matter if it is a success or not. Finally solves this exact problem. For example if you want to hide a loading UI element or something no matter if it was a success or not.

Okay. Project of the day is to speed up how fast Hmacs starts with some use-package magic :)
