I’ll be 30 this year. Am I old enough to rock a Dr.┬áHouse style cane?

I’m more excited about buying a Alphasmart Neo than I am about AR/VR

How to get into a standing desk.

03.04.2018 02:00

I have used standing desks multiple times in my life. And I think they are awesome. Mostly because I do in general feel much better if I spend my day standing and typing instead of just sitting. It does not mean I stand all the time however. But I can say that, when I’m at the office I spend more time standing than sitting.

It was really easy to get back into it this time because I had surgery a while back, and it was more painful to sit than to stand. And when it was not uncomfortable to sit anymore I was kind of used to standing. So I just continued.

But the way I have done it in the past have been to add a repeating reminder to my phone every hour when I usually work reminding me to stand. And just stand until my feed started to hurt and then sit down. Then I decreased the interval of the reminders until I could stand for more or less a whole day without it being uncomfortable.

Hello Org-journal, bye DayOne.

Thoughts on Spacemacs after using it for a while.

02.04.2018 02:00

I have been a Spacemacs user for a while now. And I do enjoy it. Like a lot. Most of what I enjoy is how awesome Emacs is. And how easy Spacemacs makes it to deal with it. For example the layer stuff is a little bit difficult to get started with, but it is awesome.

Let me be perfectly clear: I would not trade spacemacs for anything. I use it, and will probably continue to do so for a very long time.

But there are some things that I don’t like. It seems like Spacemacs is a little bit “heavy”, it takes a very long time to start compared to plain Emacs. And stuff can be a little bit unstable. I’m not saying it is their fault. I just hope that some of it will be fixed with the 0.300 release. And that to make stuff faster and more stable is a priority moving forward.

Using a Iroshizuku bottle as a inkwell.

02.04.2018 02:00

I wrote about an idea I had not too long ago. The idea was to take empty Pilot Iroshizuku bottles, clean them and then use them as a inkwell or a ink bottle for other inks. Because not every bottle of ink is the same. Some of them are just a bottle, with a flat bottom. And that can make it a struggle to fill your pens, even though there are a lot of ink left. Especially with pens like the Vanishing Point.

I started doing this a few weeks ago and it works like a charm.

This got me to think about looking for something even better. But it works for now.
