I was talking to one of my friends about how I’ve been restoring tools and cast iron pans lately, so I made a short video of what my current electrolysis tank looks like. Afterwards, I realized I should write up my current setup for other woodworkers, tool collectors, and pan nerds.
As days get shorter and shorter, I find myself wondering when the sun will set at whichever skatepark I plan on visiting. In the past, Googling “sunrise|sunset <location>” sufficed, but I wanted something that ran locally and automatically on my Linux machine, and like any Emacs user, I wanted it to run inside Emacs. As it turns out, this functionality is already built into Emacs’ diary feature.
I do all of my client invoicing inside Emacs, and one thing I keep track
of is an expected payment date, which is the invoice date plus
NET15/NET30/etc. terms (i.e., 15 business days after the invoice date).
Until now, it’s been a rough guess, but thanks to Emacs
calc, it is
now more precise.
