comment In Vim (with YouCompleteMe), can I limit the number of possible completions shown?
@romainl That linked page is the documentation; as far as I can tell it is silent on the matter.

comment How to diagnose long asymmetric ping times to a linux host?
So, what I did to "fix" the problem was, from host A, ping -i 0.1 B and have that running constantly. A tad wasteful, but ssh is usable now.

comment How to diagnose long asymmetric ping times to a linux host?
Yes, after some experimenting, I think this is almost certainly what is going on! If I set the ping interval short enough, the problem goes away entirely. Unfortunately, the driver doesn't seem to support disabling power management so I guess I'll have to live with it for now. But at least now I know the cause. Thank you so much!

comment How to remap backspace when using ibus and vim?
Thank you for the suggestion, but this is an issue that occurs during insert mode with hangul mode on (which I need it to be) so I don't think this will solve my problem.

comment In IntelliJ, can I make PageUp, PageDown move by smaller increments?
It seems that this may be doable via superuser.com/questions/613149/…

comment How can I get more control over the keyboard layout than XKB offers?
Ah I had been wondering if an input method framework might get me there but I had been utterly at a loss where to begin. Do you know any references or examples to start with for my kind of unusual goals? Also, which do you recommend -- scim or ibus?

comment In IntelliJ, can I make PageUp, PageDown move by smaller increments?
On Linux (which is what I am using) there may be a way to do this, too, but I am not sure how. The usual way of remapping keys through xkb makes it hard to produce multiple apparent keypresses in response to one actual keypress.

@peanut_butter I would be happy to do this globally. How would I do that?

comment Why are not all MAC addresses randomly assigned?
Ah I see. Maybe add that to the answer, too.

comment Why are not all MAC addresses randomly assigned?
Just to clarify, I was thinking randomly generated at manufacturing time, not at use time. Though I do see how even that would would cause problems if not done well.

comment arrow keys not working in Java application when using xmodmap
I don't have a solution with xmodmap, but I did find an incredibly awkward and painful solution using xkb input files: superuser.com/questions/558598/…

comment How can I force gvim in awesome to fill the screen?
This screenshot provided the answer in an indirect way... I had been using the everything-floating layout! So... it was basically just my stupidity. All is good now.

No, nothing changes.

Sorry, I forgot to add I already have size_hints_honor set to false for all windows... but I'll try adding a Gvim-specific rule and see if anything changes.

comment Make VIM normal-mode cursor sit between characters instead of on them
@accolade I have a mapping much like your inoremap <esc> <esc>l but it is `inoramap <esc> l<esc> so it works everywhere.

comment Make VIM normal-mode cursor sit between characters instead of on them
@accolade Oh! So it makes it like the cursor is between two chars! This is exactly what I wanted! (thank you!!)

Thank you! That works!

comment Make VIM normal-mode cursor sit between characters instead of on them
@accolade: Yes, it happens with vim -u NONE. It seems like it should too, shouldn't it? Since w takes you to the first char of the next word, and the visual block includes the char the cursor is sitting on.

comment Make VIM normal-mode cursor sit between characters instead of on them
Really, vwd and dw do the same thing for you? I just tested it again to make sure I wasn't making stuff up and no, dw deletes a word and the following whitespace, whereas vwd also grabs the first char of the next word. Do you have some mapping that changes that behavior?
