Ahh. The reason mu4e was weird on Doom was that I had to install evil-mu4e.

Mac OS X is the old, and iOS is the new.

I often see people saying “X is solved with Y on OS X, I hope Apple will support it”, and I’m pretty sure that it won’t happen at this point. There might show up something like Y that solves it, but it will not me the same. And probably not as flexible.

That’s just how it will be.

iOS is not the kind of computing I enjoy. And I will hopefully be able to work on a UNIX system or a UNIX like system for a very long time. But it is not the future.

Newsletters

04.04.2018 02:00

I have multiple times in my life made a real effort to limit the amount of e-mail I receive. And I have tried all kinds of different approaches to how to limit it. For example spending hours subscribing for everything in one go. And I have scheduled a slow each day or week to remove one of a few.

The most efficient approach for me is to sit down once a week and remove ten. I just search for “unsubscribe” and remove ten. And then I do the same next week. The reason I think this approach is good is because then you identify those who have sent you emails recently. And you also have the choice of keeping the newsletter you enjoy.

I only mark emails as spam and blacklist them after making a real effort to get rid of them.

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.
