Grown up

read a post from dalton caldwell about Touring yourself

i love this quote

Going “indie” is clearly not for everyone, but I have the utmost respect for the people that are able and willing to do it.

if you read the whole post, you’ll get what his meant. and i think personally, there’s a connection of how you become a grown ups, especially when you were married, you support your family by what you were doing right now.

that kinda responsibility is not bounded by age, any age who matches criteria like supporting family and the love ones is considered a grown-ups, responsible for himself and other.

Hipsterized commit

After adding current listened track into my commit message, now i’m adding the action, i take picture everytime commiting something. here’s how.

  • get ImageSnap brew install imagesnap or port install imagesnap
  • create this hook at your project .git/hooks/

the hook

COMMITID=$(git rev-parse HEAD)
imagesnap -q -w 1 .gitsnap/$COMMITID.jpg`

save as post-commit (so it will run after commit)

P.S: i can also wrote a ‘blog’ like this one, besides for my technical stuff i’ve been blogging on

lovely number
