comment Getting mails in draft folder on Outlook WA to behave like drafts
There is a possibility to edit a message in Outlook: social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/… unfortunately it doesn't work in OWA :(

comment Getting mails in draft folder on Outlook WA to behave like drafts
It sure leaves the local device, since I do see it in OWA after editing it in mutt and saving the message in the drafts folder. So that isn't the problem at all. The problem is that the messages saved in the drafts folder aren't editable as drafts! It's not only the timeout that irritates me, the OWA editor is vastly inferior to vim and the quoting of replies in Outlook sucks too ;)

comment Ugly fonts in Firefox on some sites, not in Chromium, why?
That's a bit strange indeed. So it seems the font choice of the site developers is to blame. Well, not much to do about that part then. I wonder if that also causes the Outlook Webinterface pages to look similarly ugly in the font department.

These both seem geared towards Windows users, but the parts that apply to Linux don't make any difference at all :(

comment gnome-terminal. New tab opening
@PaoloBonzini, indeed I agree, it's a feature. Unfortunately the behaviour seems to have changed with Gnome 3.8. How do I get back the old behaviour?

comment Custom keyboard map in Gnome (on ArchLinux)
That's not such a good suggestion. First of all since alias is a shell concept, so it's completely unnecessary. Second because I use other graphical tools where I also want the mappings to exist, gvim, gedit, libreoffice, etc... that means I'd have to copy all the relevant .desktop files into ~/.local/share/applications and modify them, so I can start either of them as the first tool after logging in. No, what is needed is some convenient way to run a script automatically after logging in, like ~/.xprofile works in LXDE/LXDM.

comment Custom keyboard map in Gnome (on ArchLinux)
The big question is when during login. When looking more closely at my system's /etc/gdm/Xsession it sources both ~/.profile and ~/.xprofile (in that order), so moving stuff from ~/.xprofile to ~/.profile is pointless. Unless of course, gnome-session itself sources ~/.profile but not ~/.xprofile, which it doesn't according to my tests just now.

comment Too many keyboard layouts
I found myself in the same situation after moving back to Sweden 18 months ago. Putting characters commonly used in programming and in the shell on AltGr+<right-hand-key> is terrible. On Linux I've resorted to remap \~ onto qw (with AltGr) and {[]} onto asdf (with AltGr). It takes a bit of re-learning, but it takes away the strain on the right hand at least. I'm very interested in hearing other suggestion for how to deal with it, especially if there's a cross-platform solution.

comment Custom keyboard map in Gnome (on ArchLinux)
I have tried running /etc/gdm/Xsession in a login shell with no luck. Just adding it to either of those files will require that I start a terminal before the mappings are active, which isn't ideal since I do quite a bit of my development in Eclipse.
