Custom Twitter Stylesheet

Modified from @tealtan's original for a lighter touch. Doesn't interfere with font faces or hide UI elements, except promoted tweets and trends.

Does equalise all the tweets on your profile page to the same font size and weight.

You can add this CSS in Safari with this extension. The URL to target is*.

Updated 2014-09-27 to undo Twitter's hiding of links.

A Short Gist About Mike Forbes!

The following bio is not endorsed by Mike Forbes!, because, amongst his many wonderful qualities, he is modest. Therefore his friends wish to toot his horn on his behalf.

Mike Forbes! is a rock of calmness and Getting Shit Done. Servers obey him; recalcitrant software bows before him. He knows everything that is worth knowing about good beer. He embraces drama and crises and smooths them into awesomeness by the power of his personality. He is kind, and patient, and friendly. He brings the magic. He is, in our considered opinion, a super awesome dude.

Small fish script you can set as $MANPAGER to view manpages in bbedit

# set this as your $MANPAGER to have manpages automatically open in bbedit

X11 forwarding with Docker on macOS

It took me several hours of painful reading around to understand what works and what doesn't where the combo of macOS + Docker + X11 forwarding is concerned. So I am writing this down for my own future reference.

tl;dr: Follow the instructions in [this gist][1].

open -a XQuartz && \
  xhost +localhost && \
  docker run --rm -it --platform=linux/amd64 -e DISPLAY=host.docker.internal:0 gns3/xeyes && \
  xhost -localhost

BBEdit text filter to replace Markup → Tidy → Reflow XML

As of BBEdit 13.1, the HTML Tidy built-ins are back and you should use those instead. This gist is so old it refers to "OS X", c’mon!

If for some reason you are using this, note @ryanfrancesconi’s comment about the correct place to put the file when using sandboxed versions of BBEdit.
