Spent an hour this morning trying to make a Logitech K400 Plus work with Linux. Pairing would seem to work (`ltunify pair`) but then only the keyboard would work, not the integrated touchpad. Maddening!

Finally found the answer: After pairing, unplug the unifying receiver and plug it back in. Presto, the touchpad works!

Dropbox Paper has a great authoring experience, but folder navigation sucks, and there's no file storage alongside.

Drive has great navigation and file storage, but Google Docs authoring pales next to Paper.

Is there any way to get Paper-like authoring in Drive?

Today I replaced a Python script with a Bash script. Why?

1. Python's Pathlib has no equivalent to ln --relative

2. Easy verbosity on the Bash script with ln -v, mv -v, rm -v

3. Easier to rm -f than try/except

Normally I would advocate going the other wayβ€”Bash to Pythonβ€”but in this case it was shorter path. Of course, if this grows up, I may switch it back...

There's a key that clears all your cookies. I don't know what it is, but I just pressed it.

Some days you just hack out the bash one-liners to get the job done...

βœΈβ€„for ((y=2018; y>1997; y--)); do curl -s "ripul.org/season.php?year=$y" | grep -m1 team.php | grep -Eo '[0-9]+' | xargs | (read y t; echo "INSERT INTO regular_season_winners (year, teamID) VALUES ($y, $t);"); done

INSERT INTO regular_season_winners (year, teamID) VALUES (2018, 7);
INSERT INTO regular_season_winners (year, teamID) VALUES (2017, 2);
INSERT INTO regular_season_winners (year, teamID) VALUES (2016, 0);

Turns out I'm not Google-unique after all. There's an Aron Griffis that teaches at Auburn University, and I'm reasonably certain he's not me.
