Music monday 2 - New Order

2 minute read Published:

Oh, New Order.. Since the first time I heard “Temptation” sung by Mark’s underage girlfriend in Trainspotting they have been a constant in my music tastes. The post-punk aesthetic, the dance elements and the “I’m trying so hard to not make sense” lyrics are a combination that I can’t get over, so I return and return and return listening to their music and re-discovering so many of their great tracks, every once in a while.

Powerful text editors, like vim, emacs, atom or even microsoft’s vs code, offer ways to automate boring stuff at hand. Repetitive work isn’t really something a human enjoys but it is exactly the kind of work that computers excel in.

Retain keybindings in non-latin layouts in emacs

Using emacs is always a journey of finding new tricks and ways to improve your work flow. You keep on customizing and customizing till you declare your emacs init file bankruptcy.

One of the things that really irritated me is emacs’ keybindings in a bilingual setting.

This made emacs keybindings unavailable if I didn’t change the layout back in english and it was quite cumbersome.

“C-σ is undefined”

I intend to do a music of the week series, every Monday I will blog about one of my current and future favorite bands/artists. I would also like to maybe create a mix-tape every now and then, a thing I really miss since my early teens. Although then I used a real cassette and not a list of digital files.. Maybe I’ll look around for a tape recorder..

The message is passed, check it even if you don’t fully agree with the underlying message. It’s a nice visualization of how our society gets segregated by bias.

How this blog works

Hello World! After the trivialities let me share some info of how this blog is run. You can study the source in gitlab that is also used for hosting the blog.

The main infrastructure here is the hugo static site generator, org-mode for editing the posts, ox-hugo for exporting the org file in hugo-compatible markdown files and the after-dark theme for basic design on which I intend to build a more personal style.
