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.
I’ve spent the past few weeks redesigning my blog and moving it away from Posthaven and onto github pages.
I run my weechat irc client on a linode which makes it hard to get notifications. It’s running in a screen session so that I can rejoin it at any time, but when I’m working I want to be notified of private messages or mentions of my name in any channels. 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.
