I started working at Twitter in November 2011. Loving it so far :)

I've got a blog at http://skilldrick.co.uk where I talk about programming (mostly JavaScript and Ruby at the moment).

comment Installing Arch Linux and Windows 7: need partitioning help
In the end the partitioning didn't mess it up, but installing grub on the Windows partition did :P I reinstalled Windows from disc and now I've got Windows and Arch installed side-by-side and happy :)

I've now found a source for Windows 7 install discs: mydigitallife.info/2010/04/28/… Now I've reinstalled Windows and got rid of all the useless partitions and bloatware Samsung forced on me. Thanks!

Thanks for this. Do you know any good places to download a Windows 7 iso?

That's great, thanks. With the help of your answer, I discovered the Wikipedia section on this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man_page#Manual_sections

comment C-l multiple times doesn't work in Emacs
@Justin Thanks, the problem was I was getting mixed up between Emacs22 and 23 :P I use 23 on Windows and 22 on Linux, and I was trying to use my Windows shortcuts on Linux.

comment C-l multiple times doesn't work in Emacs
That was exactly it, thanks! In fact, I was remembering functionality from my EmacsW32 installation - it was never in my Ubuntu Emacs, so that was just a red herring.
