Notes

5. Wayv and research potential

Categories: None -- Permalink
Chatted with Dominique earlier about articles and international prominence. Alternative input devices under Linux seems to be a niche that I can explore. Perhaps I can try out wayv and adapt it to my needs? I want application-sensitive gestures and a general way of macroing actions, but I'll settle for keystroke emulation.

strokes-mode? Hmmm. Ooooh, joy, it's right there. I love Emacs!

4. Geek power

Categories: None -- Permalink
Once again flushed with excitement, once again the master of his world - my father is at the peak of his form directing the other photographers in a flurry of preparation for an important presentation tomorrow. It is good to see them so.

Quick thinking and an almost conspiratorial comment may have helped avert an ugly mood; if not that, at least force of will and appreciation of pressure. There will be time for recriminations later, perhaps. Were it up to me there would be no time for recriminations at all, there being so many other ways to gently shape someone's behavior. (Like a bonsai is grown not by slashing off large chunks but rather by persuading little branches to grow certain ways...)

And - oh yes - geek power. One of my father's assistants had spent an afternoon working on the computer as it refused to recognize one of the digital backs we use. Quick, short, discouraging beeps and an unhelpful dialog box were all he got for his efforts. With some Googling and an almost unconscious sense of what might be important, I got the whole thing up and running. Wheeeee. =)

2. Knitting so far

Categories: Knitting#1 -- Permalink
57 rows of 10 stitches each. Progress!

1. Woohoo! Emacspeak back up!

Categories: EmacsHacks#8 -- Permalink
After struggling with ../emacs/emacspeak-config.el, Emacs with Emacspeak now boots all the way up to my tasks. Now I get to play with it a whole lot more. Next step - get another Twiddler (Dr. Rodrigo said that the department will spring for it). Also, check out gestures for Emacs. Oh, and have lots of fun... =)

emacspeak-planner.el in ../emacs/emacs-wiki has preliminary support. emacspeak doesn't seem to like invisible text in emacs-wiki. Fix one of these days.
