Today I pushed out a new release of my Ghost blog Puppet module. This release closes issue #2, where the blog’s service was restarted on every provision, not just on updates to its configuration. The module can finally setup the mail settings for Ghost, so that the annoying message that comes with the default setup goes away.
Once in a while when running a duplicity backup via the duply profile manager, I would get an error like this: --- Start running command BKP at 12:40:44.000 --- Reading globbing filelist /Users/andrew/.duply/marvin-cloudfiles/exclude Synchronizing remote metadata to local cache.
I am writing this post in case anybody else wants to build the Boost libraries using the Homebrew version of g++-4.8 on OS X (not Apple’s clang++ masquerading as g++). This is useful if you happen to build cross-platform projects, prefer GCC (Clang is great, really it is, but I don’t use it on Linux), and do not want to build and link specifically for OS X.
This is a very quick introduction to Emacs. Once Emacs is open, Emacs commands are prefixed with Ctrl-x (usually written C-x), which means to hold control and press ‘x’. This combination is a ‘keymap binding’, that is, there is a table of commands that follow C-x, which allows different tables to be made for other prefixes (for instanceC-c, C-u, and C-h).
