Private Dropbox

           ·

Private Dropbox So for sake of memory and usability I want to write up a quick post on sharing my private dropbox, what it is, how I created it, and why I use it… So I’ve said this a million times now, but I’m a huge fan of Nextcloud and use it on a regular basis it’s not even funny! But one of the features (hidden) I like about it is the ability to have a public network folder that anyone can upload a file / files to me.


Oh my XED! When a Command defeats an alias

           · ·

Preface: Aliases They are mandatory when it comes to my environment! Which 99% of the time that environment is either ohmyzsh or bash-it. Both config frameworks are lovely and both have shit ton of built in aliases that overtime I have learned to just learn rather than fight and modify. Here’s oh-my-zsh aliases: https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh/wiki/Cheatsheet#alias and bash-it by default disables all their baked in aliases, which allows you to enable a suite/set of aliases you prefer (platform specific).


JAMs Out There

             

headphones and other audio devices are definitely worth looking into! I just recently picked up a pair of the Out There ANC/Bluetooth headphones and for a pair of $60 ear muffs they definitely compete! That is they’re just as comfortable if not more comfortable than my current or past On-the-ear Sennheiser’s. The ear pads on these beauts are soo comfortable nor are they so tight pressed against the ears. So who is JAM Audio?


Piping the output of a Binary API Response

Company Logo API So I recently found this super cool service that returns a company logo from an open free API. You can alter the size, greyscale, and format all within a single request. This endpont is completely free, just gotta give them some attribution. Here the company explains it best… While services like Gravatar make it straightforward to pull in a user’s default avatar, we haven’t found anything that caters well to company logos.

So as the title says it all! These two pieces of hardware are by far the top two best clickers on the market right now! So which super badass mouse would you ride with? Logitech MX Anywhere 2S (Cobalt) Apple Magic Mouse 2 (Black Edition) So I own and standby whole hearted by my Logitech MX Master 2S mouse! It’s by far the best mouse I’ve ever owned and used.
