Drag windows with the alt key

I use both Windows and Linux. On Linux, a quick shortcut to drag an application's window is to hold the alt key and click and drag the window. On Windows, there's no such shortcut so I went searching and found AltDrag. AltDrag is a tiny program that adds this functionality to Windows. Put it in your startup.bat and see you next time!

The most beautiful fractal I have ever created

As usual, I was spending my morning creating random fractals and suddenly this artwork came into existence. I think it's the most beautiful fractal I have ever created.

This artwork is a random form of the canopy fractal. If you follow this link, you can adjust the fractal's parameters and create your own fractal artwork. Let's see what you can make!

Read man pages with vim

The default man page readers (less, more, or most) are not very usable. You can page through the content and that's about it. Imagine reading and navigating man pages with vim and being able to use your favorite vim plugins and shortcuts to highlight words, delete boring parts, find all matches, use marks, quickly jump around, and copy/past text. Now you can with Superman! It's a neat vim plugin that I just found that let's you do just that. Use the :SuperMan ls command to read the man page of ls. To use it from the shell, call vim -c "SuperMan ls". In my shell, I have replaced the original man command with vim -c "SuperMan $@" and so should you. See you next time!

Remap caps lock key to escape with uncap

I use both Windows and Linux. On Linux, I have mapped the caps lock key to the escape key via the xmodmap command. On Windows, there's no xmodmap command so I went searching and found Uncap.

Uncap is a tiny standalone exe program that remaps caps to esc. It takes about a week to get used to the new key but the result is life-changing. You can now cancel actions with a quick pinky micro-movement rather than a giant leap across half the keyboard.

Put it in your startup.bat and see you next time!
