Current Cygwin Thoughts

After trying out Cygwin for a while at work I have decided that I will keep using it on any Windows machines that I need to program on. That being said I found Emacs’s performance is very lacking so I’m not 100% sure on which method I’ll use to run Emacs in Windows.

New M-x Kelsin

I’ve spent the past few weeks redesigning my blog and moving it away from Posthaven and onto github pages.

Weechat for IRC

Due to the commit activity, the settings structure, and the support for encrypted settings I decided to switch back to weechat for IRC. Soon I will also working in a minbif config but taking things one step at a time.

OS X notifications from remote Weechat in a screen session

I run my weechat irc client on a linode which makes it hard to get notifications.

Using the help of terminal-notifier and inspiration from simular solutions I set off to make my own version using unix-sockets for communications instead of plain files.

Using God as a monitor service for my VPS

Despite some issues I do like god as a monitoring solution for my vps. I understand the config files and feel comfortable with it’s commands and logging. I don’t currently like my rvm solution for running it so this morning I converted over to using rbenv.
