Quick Links to DMs

So many messaging apps!! It's hard to keep track of who I talk to where!

I message Brian on Signal, Sean on Discord, and Steve by sms.

I just want to type their name and BAM immediately be in the correct app.

This takes two steps:

  1. Coming up with the "weird links" to open the right app to the right person (I use a spreadsheet)
  2. Making those "weird links" easy to open (like with Apple Shortcuts)
View javascript sort numbers
a = `10
b = a.split("\n")
c = => Number(a))
d = c.sort((a, b) => b-a)

Accordion Keyboard Layout for FL Studio
View 0


FL Studio support custom layouts for the "typing keyboard to piano keyboard" feature, and I made one to represent the top four rows of an accordion! The left-hand bass side of the accordion (the stradella bass system) is laid out to make playing roots of chords and common chords very easy, and it's laid out using the circle of fifths to make the common chords (V and IV) very accessible. Here is my favorite accordion fingering chart:

Accordion 1:

  1. The 12345 row is the third of the chord row
  2. The QWERTY row is the main root chord row - the Y key is C
  3. The ASDFG row is the major chord row
  4. The ZXCVB row is the minor chord row

Accordion 2:

View Electron on

Electron is tricky to get set up on Windows Subsystem for Linux, but it can work!

Four things needed overall:

  1. you need WSL2, not WSL1
  2. you need node, of course, and that part isn't so bad
  3. you need to apt install several dependencies
  4. you need an X Server so it can display the electron GUI over in Windows-land

Setup instructions, in order:
