Howdy everyone,

I'm akts. Been a distrohopper for a solid 8 years. Never learned quite the things a real user should have, but hey fun nonetheless :P

Unixmafia's deviantart brought me here. I hope to learn(what I should have) and have fun here. Once again, thank you for having me at the forums.

Love and peace

Thanks for the warm welcome venam.

Going through the workflow compilation you guys put up at the moment. Very neat.

mafia's fvwm2 screens are indeed cool. Hmm... I thought he'd be here. A while back P.K Murugan (Daisuke Aramaki) also vanished. There is a tribute screenie in mafia's deviant art though.

Currently learning vim as my first step into nix training. Master z3bra's and Master xero's blogs speak highly of it. I thought I'd start learning emacs after I saw a video of Aaron Bieber smashing vim, but as a system administrator(a horrible one) I concluded vim was the way to go.

P.S there's too much neato stuff here. My eyes bleed :P

TRAMP with Emacs is a slightly different beast from ssh with vim. With ssh + vim, you can drill your way into the mine and edit files directly as need be. ALternatively with TRAMP in Emacs, you can sit in your cozy parentheses-riddled drill cabin and operate the levers and such to manipulate the files and system you're drilling into.

I didn't know about TRAMP (*sigh face* cries in the corner). Thanks mate, for pointing that out. Are you by any chance related to emacsrocks ?

Hah. I wished. Haven't touched a quarter of these fancy modes to make things easier.

Hello akts!

First of all, welcome to the forums, I'm pretty confident you'll be a good fit in there.
I also got your email. I'm not ignoring you, I just need to take the time to answer it. Sorry in advance for the delay.

Nice comparison

You guys really have a thing here, for sticking with the defaults. Kudos mate!

I'm just a lazy bum. You just reminded me to set up a couple of hooks for rainbow-mode.

@jkl: Thanks mate.

@sshbio: an so it starts, the hunt for sane defaults :P

@dsplayer14: So much wisdom in 3 words 3:)

@rocx: dude! rainbow mode ?. I just started with vim, don't make me ditch it for emacs. The package is pretty cool. Thanks for the info.
