If my previous two updates lead you to think that I'm sitting reading Neal Stephenson in a bar on a Sunday night... Well, this is awkward.

Oh dear. According to the designer of this bar's playlist, Fatboy Slim is totally at home sandwiched between Wham and Tom Jones. Am I old?

@k4y I found it via http://t.co/YtVn2eX - it just (predictably) uses ack to find matches, and lets you open the files if you want?

via YoruFukurou in reply to k4y

@k4y the ack plugin or nerdtree are both awesome vim plugins. Unfortunately I instinctively default to a terminal tab instead of using them.

@QuizNiteCT I *wish* they chopped off the penises of convicted racists. But I'm guessing you actually meant rapists?

"boutique" (via "apothecary") and "ado" both from Proto-Indo-European dho-/dhe-: http://t.co/V9rmBgx (cc @m_lungu)

Wow, "boutique" and "ado" have the same root-word etymology. Except I think I'm the only person actually excited by that.

Bachelorhood: trying to work out if your laundry bag is full of dirty clothes, or just clean ones you haven't unpacked from the last batch.

Hrm. Visiting the dentist isn't as fun as I remember.
