Decided I was tired of having to manually go and look at my posts after I was done writing them... This latest version will open the post under your cursor in your default browser when you type 'o'. whoo! Tested and working on mac os x, could be dodgier on linux/windoze - leave a comment if you have trouble...

Found a nice post on this kind of stuff here. I haven't implemented all of it by any means, but the omnifunc code completion and snippetsEmu are quite nice. Also did my own hacky perversion of the :make command.

Changing the oil

No, the title isn't some cool metaphor - this post really is about changing the oil. Anyway, the quick change places would have you change your oil every 3,000 miles. HOWEVER, they want to sell you oil, so they might be erring on the side of caution, so to speak. My car's manufacturer recommends changing the oil every 10,000 miles. HOWEVER, they want to sell me a new car. So, after many years of wondering about this conundrum, I've decided that the sweet spot between unnecessary oil changes and waiting too long must lie between those two extremes. Hey, it sounds good, right?

new theme!

My blog is back from the dead! Well, maybe for the day, anyway... (had the day off from work because of an ice storm) I decided to jazz it up a little, and installed the excellent nitobe theme. It's pretty much bone stock, except for the header images, which were all taken by me or my wife. If you're curious where any of them were taken, just post a comment and I'll be happy to tell ya...

Thanks to a suggestion on an earlier post, I decided to extend the infamous VIM blogging client to all content types. It now comes with the capability to edit pages and stories by default, and it's easily extendible to other content types. (though you're restricted to editing the title and body, it won't do custom fields!) I suppose this would make the version number something like 0.03-rc2? Here's the (by now) de rigeur screenshot:

A while ago, I threatened to post this script, and then it slipped my mind, mostly because I switched to Gyazmail. At any rate, one of the most frustrating things about Mail.app to me was having to get out the mouse to switch between the inboxes of my various email accounts, especially once I got Mail Act-On working so nicely.

I've made a few improvements to my Drupal blogging client, first spoken about here. It now has the ability to publish and unpublish posts, delete posts, and create and edit free tags (folksonomy). The free tagging feature requires a module that I've packaged up for parsing tags in the post body - just waiting on permission from the author of the sample code I modified before posting that. Hopefully it'll be coming soon!

This is the first of a series of at least two posts about how I've configured the excellent Gnu Screen to fit my needs and make me more productive.
