Today, for the first time in quite a while, I spent the day pretty much uninterruptedly sitting in front of the computer geeking. The net result of which (this is going to be greek to some of you) is that I have a half-dozen freshly minted dotfiles, a new favorite terminal emulator that does what I want the way I want (mrxvt), and have finally, after over fifteen years using tcsh as my login shell, switched over to bash. (It made sense to go with tcsh BITD. It stopped making sense probably five years or so ago, and I haven't switched earlier largely due to inertia. I like my customizations. But today I decided to just sit down and do it. And now it's done.
It was kind of nice to spend a day grinding away on this sort of stuff. Though it no doubt helps that I don't have a steady diet of it.
