GazL's Gazette: It's just a blog with delusions of grandeur.
Old

It's funny because it's true...

This entertaining and rightfully sarcastic presentation from fosdem 18 is a must see for anyone who has had to suffer through building other people's programs from source. It certainly resonated with me as a Slackware user.

Coding for Carrots or here if you just want the doodle itself without the rest of the page.

I had a lot of fun playing with this one today,

Worth noting, that to get the award for "shortest solution" refers to the shortest program, not the most efficient number of hops the bunny takes. That threw me for a while.

Anyway, go try it out, it's fun.

Distraction free writing?

Posted 12-03-2017 at 12:08 PM by GazL (GazL's Gazette)

I really don't understand what these text editors that specialise in
'Distraction free writing' are all about. I use emacs and I just type
into a blank screen. I use vi/vim and similarly I just type into a
blank screen.

I don't get it... where's the distraction: M-x tetris?

I very much enjoyed playing with this morning's google doodle. Check it out if you haven't seen it yet, it's a good one.

I'm no musician, but here's my composition:

Code:
# cat etc/profile

# /etc/profile: system-wide defaults for bash(1) login shells

if [ "$UID" = "0" ]; then
        export PATH="/sbin:/usr/sbin:/opt/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/opt/bin"

if [ ! -f ~/.inputrc ]; then

fi

export LESS="-R"
