There's no such thing as "beautiful code"

Beauty is in the design, the concept, the algorithm.

The closer you approach the design, the concept, the algorithm -- the more beautiful the code, but the code itself is never beautiful.

comment Why does all file search perform worse than Google Web Search?
I don't feel it is answered. I think it needs to have the best file search apps for all major OS.

Yes but I don't want to do that. I want it on my desktop.

comment Key to close a fold in vimdiff?
It works. Plus now I can have VStudio style folding! If only Vim had a code intelligence, or whatever that thing in VStudio was called. Plus that remap works nicely too. The guy's a genius!

comment How to execute the output of `ls` from the command line?
! Tab, yes, I had forgotten how to get completion. This is excellent. Or will be once I 'integrate it into my workflow and thinking'. There are helpful. I wonder what debate you have started! Any idea why OS X term gives me beep (or in my case screen flash, since I hate the beeps) the first time I strike Tab, then it cows and yields to the 'completion' the next Tab, then back to beeping the next time, and so on?

comment Sometimes you are feeling down, you want to 'man up' — how can I add this manual entry in unix?
I'll be sure to check woman sed next time -- they are usually right! ;) BTW it works now. No womanual entry for sex is classic. Sed woman page is a deadset classic : A single comwomand may be specified as the first arguwoment to sed.

comment What is the reason that file URLs start with three slashes: “file:///” etc?
Gotta love the RFCs. I don't see why TBL needs to apologize for two slashes. I think they are pretty cool.

@DamienPollet Great, so I think I have !$ (last argument of previous command), $_ (last output of previous command). This is awesome!

comment How to execute the output of `ls` from the command line?
That's a cool one, too. On Mac I get this character, ≥, and not the last command. Is there any way to give a Mac terminal these bindings?

It's ok. I almost feel like it's Mac's fault. They designed out the Home key. Damn them.

Yes, anything to make bashing (is that the verb?), more efficient!

That's awesome, and also answers it. The question is unclear and messy I will clean it up.

comment How to execute the output of `ls` from the command line?
You know my meaning, to get to the start of the command quicker, but the Fn ← doesn't work from my Terminal. It produces a seemingly random command from history.

comment How to execute the output of `ls` from the command line?
Ah that's good. Except I want that same effect without having to cursor back to the start of the command and insert python before ls.

However I detected an error in my new woman. She keeps saying No wo0ual entry for down -- what did I say wrong?

Yes, wise! And even though I tried nice lawyer up it still wanted to use all of the system resources.
