I just found out that the mutt mailreader accepts ~Lexpr in searches. This matches messages where expr appears either as a sender or as a recipient. Every so often, I need to look for a mail exchange I’ve had with a particular person, or where two people have corresponded and Cc-ed me. So I’d limit… Continue reading Another Useful Keybinding
Since M. didn’t know about this the other day, I thought I’d mention it, in case it helps someone else: Firefox has a massively-useful feature I’ve been using all the time: reopen the last tab that was closed. You can find it under History → Recently closed tabs. There’s a Recently closed windows list to… Continue reading Firefox: Reopen Last Tab
Like a lot of people, I have to submit a monthly “bullet” report, listing the things I’ve done in the previous month. Since I use Org-Mode for planning, scheduling, and organizing tool (or rather: I tend to throw a bunch of notes into a file and tell this love child of a day planner and… Continue reading Monthly Reports with Org-Mode
I’d noticed a while back that if you hold down a key on the iPhone keyboard, such as the ‘E’, for a second or two, you get a pop-up menu with variations on the ‘E’ theme, like ‘é’, ‘è’, ‘ê’, and so on.

And one thing I’ve decided is that I really need to separate my collection into “Christmas music (straight)” and “Christmas music (ironic)”. It hurts my brain when I put the MP3 player on shuffle and it goes… Continue reading Sing Like You Mean It

Here are the notes (also in org mode) for the talk I’m giving later today about the book of Judges.
Here are the notes (also in org format) for the Secular Bible Study presentation I’m going to be giving in an hour or so, about the book of Ecclesiastes.
I’m leading Secular Bible Study today, so here are my notes on the book of Joshua (org-mode version). More details later, hopefully. Update, Sat Apr 18 17:42:26 2009: Well, that went pretty well, I thought. I didn’t get to give my presentation, just give out bits and pieces of it as they became relevant to… Continue reading Secular Bible Study: The Book of Joshua
Posted in hopes that it’ll help someone somewhere: A while ago, I spilled lemonade on my N810’s keyboard, then accidentally closed it before I could wipe it clean. I did what I could, but over the following days, the keyboard increasingly started making squeaking and crunching sounds. So I thought I’d take it apart to… Continue reading Cleaning a Nokia N810 Keyboard
