It's kind of weird to look back and see that I've been working on something for five straight years now -- I don't think I've ever spent that much time on a single project.

But I'm really happy that Write.as has reached this milestone. Exciting times to come in the years ahead!

"5 Years" from @blog: write.as/blog/5-years

I'm looking to purchase Frank Herberts Dune series (6 parts) in ePub format.

All I find is stores using Adobe DRM which I can't use/want. I hoped it would be
possible to buy fingerprinted versions. Any pointers?

Now using an trigger to prevent account updates to the qua.name demo account.

Even with such a small instance, there's a remarkable amount of attempts trying to change
the demo username and/or password.

The trigger is a nice solution to this, it let's me use the writefreely 'as is' and it
is a silent ignore on any attempt.

Top annoyance with my Note 2 : the hyphenation is all wrong and can't be configured nor disabled.

It seems there's a lot of interest in continuing work on Guile Emacs, since it keeps coming up on Reddit and Hacker News and everyone is lamenting the fact that there are too few Scheme hackers and they don't seem to be interested in the project. (Someone even offered to fund it.)

Right now I'm seriously considering starting a revival project. Is anyone here interested in such a venture?

I'm really enjoying maps.openrouteservice.org with the topplus map rendering.
Very effective for route planning.

Contemplating an note 2 device. Any useful insights?

Uses:
- read and annotate PDF (scientific, programming, reference)
- "normal" book reading
- longer text writing (with external BT/USB keyboard)
- sketching of technical prototypes

Required for any programmer.

Watch it when you have 2 hours of time; it's most effective to watch in one go:

I really want to like magit forge in ; it's so nicely integrated, but it is way to slow to be practical for me.

Needed to change my graphics drivers from to for an application. Man, that closed driver is a lot faster than nouveau. Feels like I have a fresh laptop.
