Talk – action = shit

This struck me as spot on: “Announcing your plans makes you less motivated to accomplish them.” Which made me think about the Brian Jonestown Massacre’s track “Talk – action = shit”.

Found via the superbly designed Contrast blog (they’re the team that make Quitter).

#! Crunchbang Linux

I’ve installed Crunchbang Linux on the old Thinkpad X24. It’s based on the Openbox window manager, and it is faaaaast, and so far very pleasant to use. The only issue I encountered was Openbox’s reliance on the super key (aka the windows key, which the X24 doesn’t have). This is easily solved though, thanks to this blog post at iceflatline. w00t.

Update: It turned out to be a little different, the script example in iceflatline needed to be tweaked slightly for my setup. The command

xmodmap $HOME/.Xmodmap

is a useful one – it pointed me to an error that was preventing the new binding from working. A useful article on Xmodmap can be found here.
