- The horizontal split when a new buffer is created for something like a *compile*
- The unicode support is much better, I no longer get the unicode "dot" at the start of a file saved by someone with Visual Studio.
- M-x butterfly - this is the sort of stuff that I love about Emacs, is it a hard core editor, yes, but it also wants to have fun!

cd /usr/ports/www/firefox35 make config make pkg_delete firefox-3.0.11,4 make installI am guessing it was the fact that I needed to uninstall firefox3 before installing firefox35 was stopping portinstall from working. Also it turned out that I needed to load the sem module too, as per the pkg-message (I should really start reading them).

- As of Gnome 2.22 Nautilus is responsible for doing the auto-mounting so the first solution is to turn off all auto-mounting completely in nautilus. We can do this by setting the configuration
/apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automountto false. You can do this with the configuration editor or from the shell with
gconftool-2 -s --type bool /apps/nautilus/preferences/media_automount falseThe problem with this solution is that it will stop Nautilus from auto-mounting anything.
- The next option is to make HAL ignore the slices so they are not exposed to Nautilus. The way to do this is to create a fdi file that will tell HAL what to do. You can list the hal properties of everything on you system with lshal in my case the key is block.device and we can use the contains_ncase to find the slices we want to ignore.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <deviceinfo version="0.2"> <device> <match key="block.device" contains_ncase="/dev/ufsid/"> <merge key="info.ignore" type="bool">true</merge> </match> </device> </deviceinfo>This works, but again it seems to be a bit of over kill.
- The last solution is to set your fstab file to set the noauto option. This is the most simple. Just make sure to us the glabel name for the slice

loader_logo="beastieIts this sort of useless fact that I love, and while maybe not as important as some other configuration options, I now know that there is a loader.conf and what it does. Chapter 4 - Read this before you break something else! (Backup and Recovery) I was ready to skip this chapter, when my eyes fell upon the section on Revision Control for config files. This is something I have been wondering how to do this properly for a while now, so I stopped skimming and read on. Once again this section was straight forward and explains both the whys and the hows. No more thinking "I should really have this under version control" for me :)

There are a couple of options on to run CherryPy behind Apache. I have chosen to go for mod_python as the mod_rewrite runs the CherryPy server at the same time (from what I can tell) and it seems to be a little silly to run two servers at once.
It all comes down to the Apache config (which goes in /usr/local/etc/apache22/Includes/cherrypy.conf on my laptop) once you have mod_python installed and in your base Apache config
The actual configuration file for CherryPy takes the following form: <Location "/"> PythonPath "sys.path+['<path to any python modules required>']" SetHandler python-program PythonHandler cherrypy._cpmodpy::handler PythonOption cherrypy.setup <python module to run>::<function in module to run> PythonDebug On </Location>
so on my system with a basic app:
<Location "/"> PythonPath "sys.path+['/usr/local/www/cherrypy/']" SetHandler python-program PythonHandler cherrypy._cpmodpy::handler PythonOption cherrypy.setup myapp::serverless PythonDebug On </Location>
