I need to have blog posts written for my company’s blog. I have the titles and the ideas, I just don’t have time to write them. Does anybody know of any service that could write them for me?
i started using input mono. it’s very nice
PragmataPro, non-free, but its the best that i can find http://www.fsd.it/fonts/pragmatapro.htm#.VaYIvdJqZuY
@pupeno: scripted is one such service
@escherize: i’ve found menlo very nice for lisps. i’ve heard good things about inconsolata as well. http://www.slant.co/topics/67/~what-are-the-best-programming-fonts has a great list that includes all the best ones i’ve found
I like menlo
I switch to something else for screenshares though b/c it doesn't play well with compression
sudo apt-get install xfonts-terminus
I tried lots of fonts and color schemes for years, this is the least strain-inducing for me
+1 to menlo on the mac (IntelliJ). For a few days after I got a 15” retain pro I would just sit there looking at the screen and drooling. I always thought the whole retina thing was marketing but wow, it makes a difference
@colin.yates: you're doing i3 on a mac?
I wish. No. Just vanilla Yosemite. I considered using a screen layout tool but decided to sell my soul to Apple for the convenience.
losing a bunch of ‘tech cred’ in the process
every so often I give into the distro-hopping itch but have restricted myself to firing up a VirtualBox VM (great bit of engineering) and playing in there. I haven’t yet found anything that will tempt me away from OSX.
Gnome3 is actually shaping up pretty well actually. KDE5 is getting more mainstream as well. My other pleasant experience was a pretty lightweight KDE4 distro on Arch. Never had to touch the mouse at all, no title bars or scroll bars anywhere.
but I find the Mac is just too pretty go give up. I use virtual desktops/spaces whatever they are called now a lot, typically have 6 or 7 open at a time and switch between them frequently. A four fingered swipe up in Yosemite gives me a great overview.
I have arch running om my macbook with the awesome window manager also pretty nice
But it's way too small on retina and I was to lazy to fix it 😛
I always go through the same emotional journey with these things - excitement of the possibilities, joy to be flying in Linux, minor frustration that it isn’t quite right, then giving up and a feeling of not quite being good enough. Rinse and repeat every couple of months 😉
@danielsz: have been using i3 for a few months already, I use lxde as a base system for the config utilities.
