Dotfiles Management

Not much of a project, but this might be useful for some folks. Here's how I am currently keeping track of all the configuration for my laptop.

The system I've settled on is copied from other people – tracking dotfiles as a git repo – but taken to its extreme where the entire root filesystem is trackable. Importantly,

  • Any file on the machine can be added to the dotfiles repo
  • The dotfiles repo doesn't interfere with any other git repos you're working with

To Green Angel Tower, Part 1

The evil minions of the undead Sithi Storm King are beginning their final preparations for the kingdom-shattering culmination of their dark sorceries, drawing King Elias ever deeper into their nightmarish, spell-spun world.

As the Storm King’s power grows and the boundaries of time begin to blur, the loyal allies of Prince Josua struggle to rally their forces at the Stone of Farewell. There, too, Simon and the surviving members of the League of the Scroll have gathered for a desperate attempt to unravel mysteries from the forgotten past.

For if the League can reclaim these age-old secrets of magic long-buried beneath the dusts of time, they may be able to reveal to Josua and his army the only means of striking down the unslayable foe....

In the evening I started in To Green Angel Tower, Part 1, book 3 of Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn by Tad Williams.
