upgraded updated to 13.0

and it runs like a charm! TNX!!!

on the bird-site there was only one reaction: plugins are faster in . no explanation though.

since I like to ask questions:

is a Vim plugin faster in operating, or faster in skipping writing of the macro yourself?

or maybe it's just a matter of taste/purity/vimness...

What works faster / better in ?

by accident discovered how to compose Japanese Kana in , by making a `typo <backspace> correction`. found out that I had a trigger for digraphs in my .vimrc, but only for emails.

rediscovering digraphs, the list is quite long!


however, European language characters are made easier with <AltGr><key>

, and are a wonderful combination to get texts done

easy, fast, no distraction and a beautiful result in pdf

attached a jpg of my cheat file (cheat is also a nifty program)

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

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 1, but this one is small!

what else do I need?

did anyone here tried the based HelloSystem?

I'm curious on the look and feel


as with a lot of things, someone else already wrote down the A - Z

inspired by this series, but without watching the vids beforehand

got myself a new used monitor for my 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 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 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 Quickly
