my setup, take #1

Among the various things I've catched up with during the summer, I've finally managed to set aside some time to answer a pending interview request for The [GNU/]Linux Setup: a blog run by Steven Ovadia that collects interviews about how people use GNU/Linux-based desktops.

In the interview I discuss my day to day work-flow, from GNOME Shell to Mutt, from Emacs to Notmuch, and the various glue code tools I've written for integrating them.

Enjoy!

Feedback is most welcome.

I Zack,

I admire your work for debian and free software.

Why do you use dropbox to share your files like the screenshot of your desktop?

It does not sound good, that you write "in a hurry" on your blog. This reads like you have a lot of stress. I hope you do not burn out and can relax as well.

Greetings, foobar.

I don't.

The interview link points to an external blog, who has apparently decided to use dropbox to share my screenshot with the world. I wouldn't do that, but they are certainly free to do so.

I've used plain old email to share the screenshot of my desktop with them :-)

Hi Zack,

thanks for clarifying this. Sadly they use a closed service for hosting images. I did not want to be rude, so please excuse me if I was.

Greetings, foobar.
