Online Ads - oh s- they really work on me

I've been putting ads on here for years, and they have basically failed. On other sites, it's actually OK, making a little trickle of money, which is so weird. Lately, I've been looking at the ads on this site, and sometimes I click them. It's not click fraud because I'm actually interested. So they are working. Then I put up this hideous ad with a big stack of text ads, and I wanted to click more than one of them.


These ads work on me now.

Log Everything: Send Shell Commands to Syslog

This is an article on security, but I started to record all my commands to syslog so I can track what I'm doing, when, and for how long, more or less. Then I record this on my calendar to see if I'm staying focused on work, or getting distracted. It's a nice blog post.

Bash History to Syslog

Edit: so I implemented it on my computer, but changed it slightly:

# log all my commands
function log2syslog
     declare command
     command=$(fc -ln -0)

Improved Learning with Transcripts of Video Tutorials

I'm learning AngularJS and noticed a few things going on. First is that there's a great tutorial out there called Angular JS in 60 Minutes Ish by Dan Wahlin. It's really good, and it's a little different from most tutorials. It read like the script of a screencast - and I thought it *was* the script of a screencast.

It's actually the inverse. It's the transcript of the screencast, and the images were taken from the screencast.
