Beating the Alarm

Filed under: General, life — skalyanasundaram @ 6:51 pm

Since my room mate prakash left to chennai for his carrier and Jony left to Australia for a trip, home is very silent. I become little discipline it seems. Home is very clean and collected all the cloths from laundry. Fixed the TV remote, fixed the remote infrared headphone which was given for OES 2 release. Come home around 10 after finishing the dinner and watch TV or browse for two hours and sleep. I set the alarm at 8:30 and mostly woke up at 8:28 and get ready for office come back home. Things are usual and boring. Leaving to my home town in Tuesday for Pongal and coming back on Thursday.

Professional life is going good. I did not posted any message related to my new project move. Yes, I moved to the another project NCP, I have not moved actually, I work on DHCP&DNS too. NCP takes more time now. Though we cant commit anything to synergy right now, and I waste my time merging patches from others. Thought I would put up git temporarily. Right now it is doing the job great. Need to learn from experience.

Experience with git:

I got a doc from kernel.org and nothing more so far and some reading on wiki thats all. I wanted to keep the research with me and dont want to influence much on others. My team partner was used to CVS and hesitated to use git so I configured his system for use. He could not believe that I had configured something. He had asked me “Seems you know it well, so how long you are used to this”. My answer was “few hours”. :-). It is that simple and smart.

Happy New Year

Filed under: emacs, General, life, Linux, open-source — skalyanasundaram @ 11:47 am

After the Mumbai trip, had a chance to go to home. Novell had announced a shutdown for four days.  Good for me, home food, sleep, TV, Movie  and sleep all the remaining time. Unfortunately Jan 1st is the working day. I planned to return and not to take leave and I need to take more leaves on this month itself.  But I decided not to spend the new year in the travel, so did a day time travel. But still I thought I am going be late for just few mins or seconds for the new year. I was sad but luckily I got down at banaglore at 11:55, people started firing crackers for the new year. I felt like my arrival is being celebrated at bangalore. 😉 hehe I should be happy. Had called up few of my friends and slept alone thats all.

I do not want the ERC> prompt. It actually confuses, because every channel buffer has the same prompt. Either remove it and keep a simple “>” mark like rcirc or make like #emacs>,  #dns> depend on the channel name. This following code actually helps

(setq erc-prompt (lambda ()
(if (and (boundp ‘erc-default-recipients) (erc-default-target))
(erc-propertize (concat (erc-default-target) “>”) ‘read-only t ‘rear-nonsticky t ‘front-nonsticky t)
(erc-propertize (concat “>”) ‘read-only t ‘rear-nonsticky t ‘front-nonsticky t))))
