Autojump

04.06.2018 02:00

I just installed autojump, and I have no idea why I haven’t done this before. The pitch is that it looks at your history of commands using “cd” and tries to guess where you want to do when you hit “j foobar”. Just install it, configure it, and leave it for a few days or weeks and then try to use it. It is awesome.

Where does different writing instruments fit in?

I use pens and I use pencils.

This is a very interesting question. In general I use a pencil if I’m just going to write down a few sentences. And then I go for a fountain pen if I am going to write a few pages. And I go for a very specific fountain pen if I’m going to write a lot (my Lamy 2000).

I also prefer a pencil when I’m going to write on the train or somewhere I don’t have a flat surface.

Pencils are fun, but you have to sharpen them way too often for them to be something I can write page up and down with. Kind of the same reason I preferred my Lamy 2000 while studying. Because it had enough ink to last me a full day. Something my Pilot Metropolitan never had.

Journaling

01.06.2018 02:00

I have been a Day One user for a very long time, I think I first downloaded it in the early days of the Mac App Store. And it is a great app. Pretty, well designed, focused and they are willing to try new stuff. Also they seem to be very open to people like Brett Terpstra to write tools that feed data into it. And it is very easy to get data in and out.

What I have done is to move all my journaling that isn’t focused around photos to org-journal. In order to try to journal more frequently. And having it accessible with just one M-x command in Emacs seemed to do the trick. But I’m still going to use DayOne for some stuff. Like photos. I take a picture of myself most days and add it to DayOne.

The Apple Password Dialog on iOS

31.05.2018 02:00

I fucking hate the “Please enter your password” dialog on iOS. It is the worst. It shows up out of nothing, with no information about why. Then it is no easy way to get the password from 1Password and enter it. Apple got to change this with the next major version of iOS.

  1. Show some kind of notification like today, but without a password field. With information about what triggered it and why.
  2. Have a place in settings where you go to enter it.

Firefox extentions

30.05.2018 02:00

Firefox finally did something they should have done a long time ago. They re-wrote their engine, and the result is that they are faster than Chrome. I’m not going into the Safari discussion here, because the Safari team have other priorities over pure speed, like for example battery life.

The result is that Firefox broke a lot of stuff as a result of it. What I’m wondering is how long it will take before plugins are updated – and how many that aren’t. And what Mozilla should do about it? Starting to hide all the stuff that aren’t compatible with the recent versions?
