This is just a quick post. At work I’m having to do a lot of TCL development and having recently become a convert to Emacs I obviously want to use it for everything!
The shortcuts are a bugger to remember so I thought I’d dump them here so I know where I can find them.
M-x tcl-mode M-x inferior-tcl (C-c C-t in a Tcl source buffer) Tcl editing:
C-c TAB (tcl-help-on-word) C-c C-c (comment-region) Tcl editing support for inferior Tcl:
C-c C-t (inferior-tcl) creates one. C-c C-s (switch-to-tcl) switches to the inferior Tcl process buffer (but does not create one). C-c C-x (tcl-eval-region) C-M-x or C-c C-v (tcl-eval-defun) C-c C-f (tcl-load-file) loads a Tcl file into the inferior Tcl process
Awesome! The eval region has to be the thing I love most from writing lis pin emacs so its great to have it for TCL.
Anyhoo thats all!
As a budding Emacs nerd I’m looking at replacing my current awesome terminal emulator Terminator (it’s in the Ubuntu repos) with a shell within emacs.
I had a play with eshell and it worked well, but I wanted to be able to use a feature called find-file-at-point which opens the file your cursor is currently over in the buffer.
Turns out this is pretty damn easy: cd /ssh:username@servername:/path/you/want
Hit return, type in your password and you in!
A couple of lovely short stories to fill your lunch breaks. Enjoy!

Damn I must have been writing code tired again. Theres some janky stuff in there!
p.s. Looks like I havent entirely grasped launchpad’s branching properly. I best do some more reading
Alright, twas a mistake on my side.
Now into the world of comments in wordpress
The new job is going well but has kept me busy. It’s one of those projects which grew lurchingly out of a experiment into a system whos goals keep being changed as moe information is found out.
A bit of a pain but still I’ve learnt alot. I’ll certainly be posting a good few things about making daemons in python as while there is some very good code online there are a couple of tweaks to that really help when working with multiple repositries on the same server.
I’ve also taken the time to pull down my code for pressly the python library and am reviewing what I have done so far so I can see how I am going to handle the next bit. I would like to get comments working properly and the wordpress API seems to be quite good with comments, so I will be able to employ some slightly different techniques that I have had to use so far.
Well, times’a wasting!
I’m currently wrapping up a SCCM rollout where I work and once this documentation is done I’ll be glad to hand it over.
Honestly I don’t know why Microsoft ever make exams. They should just set the student down with a undermaintained network and a sccm install dvd and wait.
If the student lives they pass.
I feel proud yet slightly dirty to be finishing this successfully and am ready to dive headlong into studying Solaris to purge this all from my mind!
Anyhoo hope your all well, chat to you soon!
It has been some time!
Been off on holiday in bulgaria, have got the reprap started (and well on the way to finishing), been to my first Reprap user group meetup which was fantastic, been building a small stove…and obviously craploads of stuff at work too!
SO aye, sorry for the quiet spot, I’m back and blogging.
