Factoid surprise

| -Uncategorized

Looks like my bot implants are working. Remember that hack I added to
../emacs/bbdb-config.el to let me hippie-expand factoids? Earlier
in #linuxhelp, a newbie asked about executing files. I wrote a really
long factoid under the name “executing” and another one under “chmod”.
I wanted to use it in channel, so I addressed the newbie, typed
“execute” and hit M-/ – whereupon the thing hippie-expanded to a nice,
long factoid. I didn’t mind it until I glanced at my scrollback and
went, like, “I don’t remember typing that recently.” A quick look at
the minibuffer history later, I discovered I’d had an old factoid
lying around my .bbdb – and it was better-written, too! Neato.
