Day 476

Qutebrowser open in new background tab

c.tabs.background = True in config opens new tabs in the background when middle-clicking.

History is happening

Nurse blocking anti lockdown protests in Denver : PublicFreakout and the imgur album: Health care workers stand in the street in counter-protest to hundreds of people who gathered at the State Capitol to demand the stay-at-home order be lifted in Denver, Colo., on Sunday, April 19, 2020. Photos by Alyson McClaran - Album on Imgur. As someone said, I really imagine seeing this in history books.

Screen logging

To visualize logs of screen sessions, less -r filename (-R hates ^H progress bars but I search seems to work a bit better) works very well. Even for the (tf) progress bars almost. ansifilter exists but deals with progress bars much worse.

Empirically - for searching and scrolling the same font size / terminal size is very helpful.

Vim macros posting

Just pasting the Vim macro on Day 469, while it did not break Jekyll this time (why?), seems to have broken the RSS script at the beginning of the page.

This page contains the following errors:

error on line 19 at column 73: PCDATA invalid Char value 27

Copypasted the lines from terminal and back, but I need a much better way to save and ‘publish’ the macros. Found Vim Macro Trickz • Hillel Wayne when looking for solutions.

German grammar

  • You need a dot between things like ‘u. a.’ in German, apparently.
  • on a noisy dataset = auf ein Verrauschtes Dataset
  • Dataset = der Datensatz, learned this far too late :)

Essential oils

.. can be added in a bath, but only in a carrier oil, olive oil works.

“For a single bath, three to 12 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon (15 ml) of carrier oil is sufficient to create a very aromatic, therapeutic bath” 1
