Daily Entry: March 8th, 2017

Dear diary?

Am I the kind of person to write that?

I don't think so.


I had started off writing a blog post, but I believe that will come later. Blog posts need to be substantial, here is where I write stream of consciousness and play with ideas. Not all posts here will be of the "daily entry" variety, but it'll probably be the main stuff for a while.

I'm setting up VSCode how I like it, but it's going to be a while. I'm so used to vim at this point that I naturally start doing vim commands instead.

I just fell down a rabit-hole of how to do an equivalent to vim's nmap). Chords (a means of a keyboard rule) may do the trick.

Let's try it.

Nope, not what I want.

I'll figure that out later.

Right now, I want this diary live.

I keep distracting myself with thinking, "How would I...." for any random thing. For instance, I know I can rename any given variable or string in VSCode, but I don't know how to do it.

I need to have a list I cultivate that remembers these questions, and devote some explicit time to answering the questions and making sure I remember the answer when I want to do the thing. Answering the question in the moment is not what I want to be doing.

Installing screen on my server.

Running hexo server for the diary now.

Need to setup nginx to forward to that setup.

Okay, diary is live, and this post updates as I save it.

I think that's good enough for today.
