My awesome team at work got this onesie for Big G


If anyone is sitting at my desk at work, this is what they see me working on right now (but I'm not there)(bwahaha)

NumLock broken in Ubuntu

November 24, 2009

I recently had the very unpleasant experience of not being able to use my number keypad on the side of my keyboard, whether NumLock was turned on or off.  I’m currently running Ubuntu 9.10 and apparently I’m not the only one who ran into this problem.  I found the fix buried in a forum from a user called bluefrog.

Ctrl + Shift + NumLock

That’s all it took, and I was back in business.  I’m not entirely sure how I fat-fingered that in the first place to disable the keypad, but I’m sure glad to have it back.  Thanks, bluefrog!

Code Collaboration in Google Wave

November 24, 2009

I finally got a Google Wave invite, thanks to my cousin Joel Runyon, and one of the first things I want to do with it is collaborate on projects that involve code.

I went looking for a plugin that would make it nicer (syntax highlighting, etc) and first came across the KaSyntaxy bot, which was ok, but I was hoping for something a little more robust.

Enter the Code Snippet gadget (wave link <- you have to have Wave access to get to it).  It’s absolutely perfect.  Very simple to insert code in many languages, syntax highlighting, and the ability to lock the code so others can’t edit it.  Here’s a little sample of what it looks like inside GWave.
