Medusa - The mother of all Hydras

Bundling all Hydras into a single file to rule them all, and to use them context aware

One of the problems of all text editors is that they actually have to reconcile two different functions, capturing text, and editing of text. That we are seldom aware of how different these two tasks are is also part of the problem. Our mind tends to switch seamlessly between these two tasks.

We write a sentence, and even as we type it, we notice that after the last word it would have been better to have a comma, and that the whole paragraph might have been part of the introduction anyway, maybe as a quotation.


Handling my shoppinglist from Org mode

How I get my shoppinglist from my computer to my mobile phone

Twice a week I compile a shopping list, mostly for our local supermarket, but also for some smaller stores. Getting the finished list the easiest way to my phone was a thing that I wanted to automate for a long time.


Qutebrowser and URLs as QR-codes

Implementing a qr-code for a visited URL in Qutebrowser

When I have been to the 35c3 in Leipzig I saw a pretty firefox addon that became very handy when we wanted to share the URL to a freshly created pad. It was FxQRL a Firefox add-on that turns your URLs into QR code images without the need of a network connection. Everyone of us could then scan this code with our mobile phones, and we were done.


My perfect typing environment. Finally.

I built me a mechanical keyboard specialised for Emacs and coding

If you have read my earlier articles about my search for the perfect keyboard, you may have got an idea of what I was looking for. Namely a mechanical keyboard with a decent keyboard layout, optimized for my use case. I mostly do my writing with Emacs, and a lot of it is german text and programm code. In the meantime I found my perfect solution, and realized I had no article of it in my blog. So this is it, maybe it is of use for some of you.
