  • Posted to Ask DN: Favorite bash_profile aliases?, Jan 23, 2016

    I'll link to my bashrc for anyone looking at how to setup some of this stuff.

    My top 5 are

    • gs for a pretty version of git status
    • gc for quick committing with git
    • .. to quickly back out of the directory your in
    • z for quick directory traversal with fasd
    • up which updates various things that I do not care to remember to update like homebrew, npm, vim-plug, etc. Check out the link above or look at line 116 as it shows the meta part of it.

    Definitely better visibility on mobile. When you get into the larger sitemaps I think a "More" button on the right would be good too.

  • Posted to Favourite cooking/recipe app?, Jul 29, 2015

    Paprika - We have grown a digital library of over 700 recipes from past family recipes and stuff we find online. Every weekend we plan out the next week's meal schedule, then get all the groceries. Sometimes she will ask me to get a few things at the store, the list is already on my phone, so she doesn't have to tell me what to get. Haven't found anything as comprehensive since.

    My only dislike is that they don't polish UI as often as other apps, but I think it's just one guy, so I can't complain, it works.

    I use a Logitech Pro Webcam C920 and Apple Earpods, I also opt to use the webcam's mic instead because the quality seems to be better for my team. For software we primarily use Google Hangouts for internal meetings, smaller group meetings sometimes are on and client calls are on GoToMeeting. Hangouts seems to be great for 8+ attendees, but we mostly turn off our cameras at that point because it's just too much to stream. The biggest factor might come down to how fast your internet connection is. It's obvious when we have someone working from home who barely stay active in the meeting because their connection just can't keep up. Similar to lag in online multiplayer games. My connection is 50 down, I wouldn't recommend anything less.

    For echoing, always use headphones, that reduces it nearly 100% in most cases.

    BitTorrent Sync with the Sketch template folder, then share the secret folder key with your team so they can setup their sketch template folder the same.
