just discovered that in #Firefox you can make a screenshot from the complete page or a selection by hitting
by accident discovered how to compose Japanese Kana in #mutt, by making a `typo <backspace> correction`. found out that I had a trigger for digraphs in my .vimrc, but only for emails.
rediscovering #Vim digraphs, the list is quite long!
however, European language characters are made easier with <AltGr><key>
it gets even better with a file manager like ROXfiler, where you can give a string based on the file type -- define in 'Set Run Action' menu. clicking instantly makes the pdf
just have to find out that ROXfiler also opens the file with eg. mupdf
got a Word or LO file, but don't have that software? #pandoc !
just read the text:
$ pandoc <file>.docx -o <file>.md && less <file>.md
just read a pdf of it with picts:
$ pandoc <file>.docx -o <file>.pdf && mupdf <file>.pdf
who needs a GUI text editor?
scaling down, both for fun and getting to re-know what I really need
#FreeBSD box with a 15" screen 1024x768 instead of a bigger one. started with looking at my old 9" Mac Classic work horse... just need one piece of software / window at a time, so why (+ physical) desktop wide? it's just distraction
this WE fired up my Nokia 108 (OK, its'M$ PRKL). phone, sms, contacts, flashlight, radio and SD-card with MP3 for on the bus. love my #Jolla 1, but this one is small!
what else do I need?
writing out the complete #Vim alphabet of commands a-z and A-Z
starting writing down what I know, then look up the rest.
inspired by this series, but without watching the vids beforehand
got myself a new used monitor for my #FreeBSD box:
15" iiyama ProLite E380s, instead of the 17" I had.
why? because a smaller display size has less distraction! I'm just writing text, email and browsing, there is IMHO no need for multiple windows next to each other. TTY set to terminus-22 at 1024x768
this 15" even displays #Vim with Goyo and LimeLight properly in TTY!
what else do you need?
got to a smaller display realizing the fun I had with my Mac Classic in the 90-ies. no fuzz workhorse, just a paper-wide screen. doing one task at a time.
9-and a bit screen size is too small nowadays, having more pictures and for browsing.
but the 20" wide screen and even the 17" made my eyes go all over, and with i3 WM one window is too large and with two or more it is out of center, etc.
so there was no use for a bigger screen with #cwm WM
the 15" was used but in _very_ good condition
don't like too much cross posting from the bird site, but there are several discounts on the Mastering #Vim Quickly
just in case you always wanted such a book...
nice #Vim link from the bird site:
