    Project mention: sync *some* settings between computers? | | 2021-12-06

    it's worth recognizing the dotfiles concept is fractured so there are a hand full of project styles, I use this one which comes with a simple shell script to bootstrap the dotfiles into place Each one as it's own approach but they all accomplish the same thing.

    nix-channel --list and sudo nix-channel --list both show I'm only using 21.05 as nixos. I'm using as home-manager so maybe it's getting 21.11 now instead?

    Project mention: New job, windows computer. I tried to use VisualStudo code, but I got back to vim anyway | | 2021-10-03

    This is what I've been doing for years (WSL 2). It's really solid if you combine tmux with terminal Vim. My dotfiles work exactly the same on my native Linux device as WSL 2 and it's fast too.
