@Gaffen i wanted to know if i would “miss” any zsh features.
and i ended up learning more about how shells work by trying to re-create my old environment in bash-compatible scripts.
did you know zsh uses its own implementation of readline? this allows you to do cool stuff like have syntax highlighting as you type commands. that is something i do miss, but i am enjoying checking out other toggleable bash functionality in the meantime.
@darius if your library has cassette-shaped album covers, don’t expect them to be displayed correctly. my gripe-list with plex is large, but so far it’s the only easy solution that i don’t have to put much thought into 😰
@darius i am in a weirdly similar situation.
i am using plex until i find something more suited for me. i don’t love it but it has lots of itunesy features and i can use first-party and third-party clients and stream music from home when i am out with my phone.
i am using beets to organize/tag my files, and the plex server just mindlessly reads from that library.
my most used plex feature is the plexamp client’s “random album radio” which just plays me random albums in order!

@insom fwiw, the built-in vim plugin manager that comes in vim 8 lets you configure which plugins to load at startup and which to manually load with :packadd <plugin-name>
so i’ve separated the weird plugins that require java binaries from the everyday ones and my vim is super fast now! i like the built-in plugin manager a lot and the next time you spring-clean i would recommend checking it out!
my review of a little film in which the filmmaker (jennifer west), presents film titles from her personal bootleg movie collection – but i didn’t actually read her introduction first so i didn’t totally understand that that’s what was happening:
oh, or these are bars that i intended to visit some place that i visited.

alcohol; cocktail recipe + review
classic gin & tonic, with lime 👌
pseudo review: instead of straight up tonic water, i’m using a locally-made tonic concentrate and conventional (sodastream) soda water. this is a very economical way of making drinks that require tonic, and i am a fan. the concentrate is from rootside provisions and i can very much recommend it: https://www.rootsideprovisions.com/
star trek: voyager
i read an interview with star trek: voyager’s kate mulgrew recently where she complained about how many times they changed her hairstyle throughout the show’s run.
and now, i have just witnessed, in the episode basics, part ii: a scene where they literally cut off 5 locks-worth of her hair and use it to start a fire in a star trek cave. it’s incredible.

alcohol; cocktail recipe + review
2.50 oz vodka
0.25 oz lavender syrup
+ a pinch of black pepper
add syrup to a glass of ice, then add vodka, then stir to chill, then use a fine strainer to strain into a martini glass.
review: just was given some fresh lavender and was able to make some lavender syrup with it. it is so effective, even in such a small quantity here. this is a perfect, difficult to screw up drink. definitely will come back to it.
