Dr. Bunsen / Vim Croquet

I wanted to better understand how I manipulated text with vim and to see if I could identify any inefficiencies in my workflow. I spend a huge amount of time inside my text editor, so correcting even slight areas of friction can result in worthwhile productivity gains. This post explains my analysis and how I reduced the number of keystrokes I use in vim. I call this game Vim Croquet.

Dr. Bunsen geht mal wieder die Extrameile, um seine Produktivität zu steigern. Crazyness.

Instapaper on the Kindle Paperwhite – David Smith

This walkthrough will focus on using Instapaper with a Kindle Paperwhite. The Paperwhite is the latest in Amazon’s long line of e-ink reading tablets. It provides dramatic improvements over the previous generations and while not perfect I think it is the best e-ink reader available today. This walkthrough, however, will work in much the same way on older generation Kindles.

Making GIFs from Video Files with Python – del( self )

Sometimes producing a good animated GIF requires a few advanced tweaks, for which scripting can help. So I added a GIF export feature to MoviePy, a Python package originally written for video editing.

If 2014’s Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth – Movie Feature – TheShiznit.co.uk

As soon as I heard today’s announcements for the 2014 Academy Awards, I opened up Photoshop and whipped up these 15 mildly amusing honest poster alternatives in five minutes flat, because I’m just that talented. Seriously. These didn’t take a month, no matter what you’ve heard. Off the cuff humour, each and every one. And that’s the truth.

Why Her Will Dominate UI Design Even More Than Minority Report | Wired Design | Wired.com

Of course on another level Her is very much a movie about technology. One of the two main characters is, after all, a consciousness built entirely from code. That aspect posed a unique challenge for Jonze and his production team: They had to think like designers. Assuming the technology for AI was there, how would it operate? What would the relationship with its “user” be like? How do you dumb down an omniscient interlocutor for the human on the other end of the earpiece?

Quantifying the best and worst NFL broadcasters. | SportsonEarth.com : Aaron Gordon Article

So I listened to 32 NFL games — two per crew — charting every foolish, false, annoying, ridiculous and downright dumb thing each of them said. I did this not because I enjoy it (it was, indeed, awful) but to determine which NFL crew is the worst of the lot.

Sehr unterhaltsamer Artikel.

Automatic filing with Hazel and Mavericks tags – BrettTerpstra.com

The basic idea is that you save new files and incoming attachments that you don’t immediately have a place for to your Desktop. I sometimes fill up about half my Desktop (with 64px icons) with new project files over a day. Then, when you have time to review, you apply special tags that Hazel recognizes, triggering a script that handles filing based on the tags applied.

How to build an electric guitar | SMYCK

After spending a lot of time learning to play the guitar I felt the urge to start building my own guitars. I saw a movie called »It might get loud« where Jack White is nailing a pickup to a plank of wood, hammers nails to hold the strings and jams along. It didn’t seem too dificult.
