- Vim Turns 20. Vim is a text editor, beloved by many programmers and other people that spend most of their time writing text. It's very powerful one you know it, but the learning curve is quite steep. I love it, and it's one of my main tools.
- I get a lot of my daily information through RSS feeds. On my laptop I've used Google Reader for years, but after a recent redesign it's become unusable to me. I'm looking at alternatives such as Feedly, but I have not found anything that really works for me yet.
If anybody has a good suggestion for a news reader, let me know. My main criteria is that I get the feeds in list form (no newspaper-like layout), that syncs with Google Reader, that it is navigable by keyboard and that I be able to go through items feed by feed (or group by group), not just all new items jumbled together in time order.
- Japanese curry goes well with couscous. If you get tired of always having curry with rice, this is a good alternative. My Madeleine cookies are improving, but I still don't get the light and fluffy consistency I want. Any tips for fluffier Madeleines are very welcome.

You can track my work habits pretty reliably through this blog. If I am mostly coding or running simulations I write a lot around here. If I'm mostly trying to work on a paper or a presentation this place goes silent. No prices for guessing what I'm currently doing. The silence here gets worse now that I tend to post short notes on Google+ rather than here. I think I would like a way to repost those fragments around here too in some way. As a test, let me post links here to some recent posts of mine. Is it good, unnecessary, or annoying? Please let me know.
