1. Pusa sa Kalye

hindi ko malimutan
pusang nasagasaan
tatlong kuting sa daan
wala nang mapuntahan

bituin daw kanyang mata.
rosas daw kanyang labi.
mukha raw s'yang diwata.
ay! baliw yung nagsabi!

ABAB rhyming this time.

3. Living with ratpoison

Categories: None — Permalink

I use the wonderfully minimalist ratpoison window manager. Unlike most window managers, ratpoison leaves my shortcut keys alone. I can do everything without lifting my hands from the keyboard.

The important parts of my ~/.Xsession are simply:

emacs &
exec ratpoison

This is my ~/.ratpoisonrc

banish
escape F11

Whenever I start up X, I get Emacs in full-screen mode. I can use F11 c to create a terminal window. If I need to refer to another application, I use F11 :split and :hsplit to arrange my screen. F11 :only returns to my one-window layout.

ratpoison doesn't deal well with window-y applications like the GIMP, but that's what the :tmpwm command is for. I usually switch to FVWM with :tmpwm fvwm when I need to use GIMP, then exit FVWM to return to my ratpoison environment when done.

Great stuff. Glad Clair's checking it out.
