An informal wiki of sorts.

Digital Garden

At times, wilderness is exactly what readers want: a rich collection of resources and links. At times, rigid formality suits readers perfectly, providing precisely the information they want, no more and no less. Indeed, individual hypertexts and Web sites may contain sections that tend toward each extreme.

Often, however, designers should strive for the comfort, interest, and habitability of parks and gardens: places that invite visitors to remain, and that are designed to engage and delight them, to invite them to linger, to explore, and to reflect.

I want to get rid of all local modifications and go back to the working tree of the most recent commit:

git restore .

Revert a specified commit:

git revert commit-id

Reset the repository to a specific commit in the git log:

git reset --mixed commit-id

I need to commit and push changes to a remote that has been changed since my most recent pull:

git pull --rebase

Alpine 3.18.2; no DE.

I currently run my Alpine laptop via the default login shell - no desktop environment. From here, I use a mix of byobu and emacs to split my screen into tabs and panes. All programs run through the shell and do not use visual libraries such as X or Wayland.

I have Sway installed and configured, but only launch it when I must.


Ubuntu 22.04.1; no DE.

See my services page for a list of the publicly-available services running on this server.
