Just ran across this very enjoyable article about how GitHub sped up cloning by several orders of magnitude – https://github.blog/2015-09-22-counting-objects/.
If you haven’t seen it, check out the git commit graph. In the Linux kernel tree, the time for me to show the commit graph of the five most recent commits went from five seconds to 20ms! https://devblogs.microsoft.com/devops/supercharging-the-git-commit-graph/. Requires Git 2.18+, which you can install on Ubuntu LTS from a PPA per this. Short version:
git config --global core.commitGraph true
and then, in each repo:
git show-ref -s | git commit-graph write --stdin-commits
Curly quotes: because reasons. 😉 In Insert mode:
Ctl+K '6 will give you an open curly single quote, and
Ctl+K '9 will give you the closing curly single quote.
Ctl+K "6 will give you an open curly single quote, and
Ctl+K "9 will give you the closing curly single quote.
Visual mode: turns out you can just hit
o when in Visual mode to move the cursor to the other end of the selection. Handy!
Tangerine Dream’s 2008 concert at the London Eye.
I haven’t even listened the whole way through, but the segment starting at 49:42 earns it a spot here!
A belated Happy New Year to you!
I learned about elementary OS from Slashdot. I currently use Nautilus and xfe, but am not 100% happy with either. I thought I would give Elementary Files (the elementary OS file manager) a try.
sudo apt-get install -y ninja-build gobject-introspection libgirepository1.0-dev
meson if you have it installed (e.g.,
sudo apt remove meson)
pip3 install meson – you need at least v0.50 (I think).
~/.local/bin to your
PATH if you haven’t yet.
sudo apt-get install -y valac libcanberra-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libgail-3-dev libgee-0.8-dev libglib2.0-dev libgtk-3-dev libnotify-dev libpango1.0-dev libplank-dev libsqlite3-dev libunity-dev libzeitgeist-2.0-dev
- libcloudproviders-dev (bionic’s package isn’t new enough):
git clone https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/libcloudproviders.git ; cd libcloudproviders ; git checkout 0.3.0 ; meson build ; cd build ; ninja && sudo ninja install
- libgranite-dev (bionic’s package isn’t new enough):
git clone https://github.com/elementary/granite.git elementary-granite ; cd elementary-granite/ ; git checkout 5.2.5 ; meson build ; cd build ; ninja && sudo ninja install
- Files (at last!):
git clone https://github.com/elementary/files.git elementary-files ; cd elementary-files ; git checkout 4.2.0 ; meson build ; cd build ; ninja && sudo ninja install
Whew! This is reminding me why we have package managers 🙂 .
Let me know if this doesn’t work for you — I may have missed something by accident.
A Chinese green tea from (the Internet tells me) Anhui Province. I got mine from Upton Tea (with which I am not affiliated). A pleasant hay-like aroma. I have generally been steeping at around 185 deg. for two minutes, and can get at least three cups out of a teaspoon of leaves.
The flavor depends heavily on steeping time. Between 1:30 and 3:00 of steeping time, the bouquet and taste move from hay through light smoke to tobacco. Pick your favorite!
I just realized this is the first Tea of the Day post. Welcome to a new series! Stay tuned for more as I expand my horizons and (eventually) move towards custom blending.
A Tangerine Dream concert from 2014 — over two and a half hours!
Favorite track: “Heartstrings.”
Track most like the town music from a Square RPG: “Lantern”
Edit Many of the lyrics seem quite depressing. Even though the music is fantastic, I am going to take this one off my playlist. Ah, well.
