Three sick days plus RSI really slowed my work down. Here are some of the things I have been thinking of:
- Having a place to do brain-dump every moment I have something in my head, as easy and painless as possible. My static web log requires me to have the Git repo, commit, and push every time I want to post, not a thing I want to do with my Android. I always thought WordPress is for careful and lengthy posts; but who made me anyway? Besides, Android has a very nice WordPress client. So let’s go WordPress.
- Continuing to develop PyTyle 1 (the version I have branched from the Andrew “BurntSushi” Gallant’s original one). Xlib is horrible and badly documented, but well, I gotta cross my line and improve it after all. Later, XCB!
- Installing one more distro (to be exact, one Unix-like system) onto my hard drive, here are things about which I care:
- Relatively stable. This option is, well, … relative. By that I mean more stable than the latest Fedora, and not easily broken after updating/upgrading,
- Not resource-hungry and power-hungry,
- Relatively up-to-dated. God! For this one I have to leave out Debian.
- Well documented, as Arch Linux, Gentoo, Debian, and FreeBSD.
- Having high quality and helpful community, like Arch Linux, Gentoo, and FreeBSD, …
- Doesn’t think it’s smarter than a user, only do things it’s told to do.
- Configuration process is not dreadful (as with Gentoo’s), ’cause this is my secondary one and I don’t want to spend too much effort configuring it right from the start.
- Having really committed people.
- Not likely to die :-D.
- Following that is some of the choices: FreeBSD, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Mint LMDE, Zenwalk, Slackware, VectorLinux, and Calculate Linux.
- Learning in-depth how a window manager works, with some source code for referencing: Subtle, wmii, pytyle, dwm, stiler, pywo.
- Making my Emacs configuration transferable. This one I have been postponing for a very long time.
- Trying out BigBlueButton and compare with OpenMeetings.
Hah, this post got longer than I thought.
