    Java logical operators shorct-circuiting

    vim antipatterns w vs e + vim movements

    I should use e much more than w, as that’s what I really usually need. And in general I should take the time to get to know better the tools I’m constantly using. I guess ‘right’ vim is something like ‘right’ typing.

    zsh prompt changes

    To continue the idea to make it easier to record my steps, did some changes to the clean oh-my-zsh theme. For this, I made a copy of the theme file /home/%username%/.oh-my-zsh/themes/clean2.zsh-theme, and using zsh: 13 Prompt Expansion added the following:

    • history event number at the end of the prompt, after the time (RPROMPT='%*/%!')
    • Added the last N elements in the path while leaving tilde contraction. (PROMPT='%{$fg[$NCOLOR]%}%B%n%b%{$reset_color%}:%{$fg[blue]%}%B%5c/%b%{$reset_color%} $(git_prompt_info)%(!.#.$) ', the number 5 represents the number of directories to show.)

Sl 12:10 10:07 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/x-www-browser https://the-link-i-click.ed; I can’t find it easily as the process doesn’t contain the string qutebrowser.
