Notes

1. Lightning completion and highlight completion

Categories: emacsPermalink

A stray mention in #emacs led me to http://www.math.washington.edu/~palmieri/Emacs/ , which has Emacs Lisp code for lightning completion and highlight completion. Both are pretty interesting, and I wonder how I can put them to good use. Hmmm...

2. Fixed the network connection

Categories: None — Permalink

Celine was having terrible problems with her network connection. Initially I thought it was because Quickbooks couldn't handle the cascaded switch configuration, but with packet loss of over 50% and only two hosts connected to the switch, it didn't seem to be a resource problem. The high packet loss meant that Quickbooks was practically unusable. When I took my laptop down to the lobby for diagnostics, I couldn't even ping the server. The tester lit up the lines in the right order, although one of the cables didn't have a working pin 1.

After some poking around, I threw my hands up and crimped one of the spare cables according to the standards. (Good thing we had spares!) Lo and behold! It worked! I should leave a wiring diagram in Jun's networking toolbox.

Does anyone have a 110 punch tool for terminating wall mounts? I expected the wall mounts to be self-terminating like the patch panels in the dorm, but that wasn't the case. PC Express carries wall mounts, but not the tool for terminating them--go figure!

Actually, typing random strings in the Finder does the equivalent of
filename completion.

completion vs. the Mac Finder.)
