My e-drum set-up took me a day (@see previous post). The (preliminary) guitar set-up less than 5 minutes. I simply had to whrock fast.

Building a “silent” e-drum platform

Friday, December 28th, 2012 | Gadgets, Photography, Tech-savvy | No Comments

When I am not busy working my immaterial day-job I like to fiddle with handicrafts. This time I wanted to build a platform that decouples my new e-drum set from the concrete floor for reasons of noise reduction and neighbour amity. First, it was just plywood elevated by layers of bubble wrap, but then I fancied some power outlets and light. I am pretty happy with the looks of the outcome, even though I guess it’s not significantly less noisy 😎

Bash history at your fingertips as seen @coderwall.

The single most useful thing in bash #protip via @coderwall

Create ~/.inputrc and fill it with this:

"\e[A": history-search-backward
"\e[B": history-search-forward
set show-all-if-ambiguous on
set completion-ignore-case on

This allows you to search through your history using the up and down arrows … i.e. type “cd /” and press the up arrow and you’ll search through everything in your history that starts with “cd /”.

Props go to Jude. Thank you very much for this. Upvote done.
