neat vim plugin for outlining
i was writing a long markdown document and i really wanted like a clickable outline of headers and remembered this thing:
sure enough, `:Voom markdown` and there's a panel with the exact interface i was looking for. super handy.
honestly this would probably be better measured in hours
birdsite handle mapping
not really something i'm in the market for personally, but curious if anybody knows of a thing like this i haven't heard of:
I've got a new blog post up at Meedan (where I work). It's about longform git commits: what they are and how they can make your life as a software developer easier.
My spiciest git take is you should ban "-m" from your git repertoire and go full verbose invoking a text editor from the CLI to write commits.
the software we use to make software is split between
a) artifacts of profound depth and multi-layered beauty, honed for purpose by generations of craftspeople - things that may require familiarization and study, but reward the effort with years of aid to thought and effort
b) high-test distillations of the worst tortures our discipline inflicts on the rest of the world, but turned back on a userbase just about capable of operating them by virtue of years of agonizing struggle
uspol / nebraska pol
just judging by the sheer amount of egregiously sketchy phone-bank push polling and spam text messages, somebody is dumping an unusual amount of money into the nebraska gubernatorial race.
(i haven't lived in NE for mumble years, but cellphone area codes are forever.)
(it probably doesn't need to be specified, but this will be a race between minutely-differentiated flavors of compleat shitbag.)
thanks, as ever on this kind of thing, for all the helpful thoughts. i've got some stuff to investigate.
in favor of soup.
follow requests welcome! but please have a posting history i can check out, be someone i know, or just message me saying hi first.
