So I don’t surf youtube very much. Or rather, only when my kids are wanting to watch Wallace and Gromit trailers. So I’m always waaaay behind the times. That said, this video is a riot.
For the last ten years I have used the color
#E3BF70#fddc8e (hex) as my terminal background color. It’s a darkish amber color that is very easy on the eyes. I’m recording it here because every year or so I have to set up a new system and always have to eyeball the settings till I get something close to what I am used to.
Update: 26 Jan 2009 Here’s my .Xdefaults file for my xterm under X11 on OS X.
XTerm*background: #fddc8e XTerm*foreground: black XTerm*faceName: monaco XTerm*faceSize: 10 XTerm*saveLines: 10000 XTerm*scrollBar: true XTerm*rightScrollBar: true XTerm*jumpScroll: true XTerm*geometry:100x40+0+0

I immediately thought “oh shit. Now my new Search::Query module feels late-to-the-party.” But on further reading, I think a CQL dialect in Search::Query makes some sense.
Search::Query is a SQL::Translator-like module for free-text search. I coded it up this week after brewing the idea for some many months. I’m imagining it now as a next-generation Search::QueryParser::SQL, for contexts beyond SQL. Example: I have a query string that works with Xapian and want to convert it to one that works with Swish-e 2.x or KinoSearch. Just parse it with Search::Query::Parser and assign it a target dialect and then call $query->stringify to get the translated version out.
Saw David Rawlings and Gillian Welch in concert just before Christmas. Heard this interview just now. I like the record even more after hearing Dave talk about it.
