As I've said before, I'm constantly working in the shell and have found many ways to improve my flow since I began working this way. I also like to keep in contact on IRC to give out help on Ruby, JS or Rails (and constantly learn in the process), chat with friends, or discuss open-source projects. I use irssi to connect to Freenode, a shell client, and I wondered if it would be possible to get Notifications Center to listen in on my chats and let me know when I get new messages. Thanks to alloy's powerful terminal-notifier, I can!
A response I made to a thread on the Something Awful forums:
So here we go, another new layout and another re-hash of this blog's content. I threw away the last two iterations (still have the data, though) of this blog, because I was unsatisfied with the poor content on it. So let's start again.
