Photo Gallery updates

Ok, it’s already a while back when I have updated my photoblog the last time. The reason was that the tool I used needs a lot of manual operations until a picture is visible in the blog. I don’t have time for that and simply wanna have an easy way to publish new pictures. So my decision was to switch over to Flickr. That’s the easiest way for me to publish pictures directly from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom with the Flickr export plugin. It’s a one click action now and will definitely cause a lot more picture updates as ever before.

So enjoy my pictures in the photo gallery on my website or directly on Flickr. And yes, all the former pictures will be uploaded step by step.

Mercurialized prompt

Within the last two weeks I messed up my Mercurial queue a couple of times. Working on several patches in parallel you will forget about the currently applied patch. Doing changes and refreshing the patch will overwrite the whole content of the wrong patch! That could be really bad. To circumvent such an action Jason Orendorff posted a nice solution which integrates the name of the top patch into your prompt. So it will like like:


The only thing you have to do is to enter the following entry into your .bashrc or .bash_profile:
PS1='\u@\h:\w[\[`hg qtop 2>/dev/null`\]]\$ '

That’s it!
