Multiple selections with Sublime Text

tcr! · Mar 26, 2019 at 1:50 pm

If your code editor can’t do this you’re missing out. Multi-line text editing in all its glory: 70+ lines at once.

Sublime Text is worth every penny.

Sublime multi line editing - MP4

And yes, this kinda thing is what I do all day.

I have used Notepad++ for years at work but this feature has slowly been pulling me to install sublime and convert.

Definitely give it a try. And have a good look at the keyboard shortcuts. They’re where all the power is.

I will.

Cool! Been using vim for years and can very likely do the same with Visual Block. Can’t really justify using any other editor since it’s been around since 1976 and it’s free!

Hard to beat 1976!

I’ve never used Notepad++ since they don’t make it for Mac 😁

Sometimes I check my email with dread. It’s so nice to feel the opposite afterward.


Me yesterday:

The website was timing out during upload but I’ve fixed this and also imported all four of your CE spreadsheets.


Client today:

I just made them all active! So exciting!

Thank you again! You are a Prince! ;->


Best way to start the workday, even better that it’s a Friday workday. 🎉

I don’t think I could ever work at a dry-cleaning shop. How could you not try on the clothes? After I’ve dry-cleaned them of course.

And to those who go to the dry-cleaners, I’m sorry I’ve given you something you probably didn’t want to think about.

In August, we will provide you with more of the detail about how this exciting change will positively affect you.

Uh-huh. That’s what they all say but work changes are never exciting and they always affect me negatively.

Client: I would like you to implement X on my website.

Me: Okay. Could you send me an example of X so I can review?

Client: I would still like Y to work.

Me: Adding X will not affect Y.

Client: Okay, I didn’t know if you were going to throw away Y when implementing X.

Me: Don’t worry, you asked for me to implement X so I won’t throw away Y.

Odd height window

Odd height window

In other work related news, there’s an office in my building that has a long window that’s at an odd level. I enjoy waving to them as I make my regular building rounds.

I kinda feel like your happy neighborhood shark when I do. 🦈 👋

I’ve suggested several times that we all wear tinfoil shark fins on our heads when walking around the cube farm. No takers yet.

I take it! You go first.

I have ONE email in my work Inbox and it’s one I’m waiting on a reply to.

I think this means that my work week is done.

What to do when someone bails the conference call

tcr! · Feb 10, 2018 at 8:33 am

Audio (MP3): 20180210 - What to do when someone bails the conference call

Question posted to Facebook:

Just got stood up for an 8am conference call. Any suggestions for punishments for the offending party?

My answer:

I just like to stay on the call even when nobody shows up. I relax, have a nice cup of tea for an hour or so. Enjoy the silence. Wonder what I’m getting for my birthday this summer. Wonder why I still think about my birthday presents at this age. Sometimes I’ll even check the expiration date on my Hot Tamales. Have you ever had a stale Hot Tamale? Don’t bother. They’re the worst.

Abandoned conference calls are one of those rare moments in life when you get a freebie. Like when you pull into a parking spot where the previous guy over paid. You have an hour, all expenses paid trip to wherever you wanna go. Nothing can touch you because you’re booked for that time slot. And then when your boss asks “how was the call” you can say, “Pretty low-key. No real action items on my end.”

The scene is my work desk. I see my work phone ring from the corner of my eye. I roll both eyes and pull out one of my EarPods. Pause Amazon Music playing The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey and their sweet jam about “pulling me closer in the backset of your Rover.”

Me: This is tcr! May I help you?

Caller: Hi, this is Megan with Jobspring Partners. I see that you’re looking for a lead…

Me: I’m sorry, I’m not interested.

Caller: You’re not interested in what?

Me: Any of this. This WHOLE phone call.

Caller: Oh…

I hang up my work phone before she can finish that sentence, too. I put my EarPod back in and click play. Closer once again fills me with bliss as Halsey sings to me, “bite that tattoo on your shoulder.”

I used to tell cold call recruiters that we weren’t hiring or that if they’d give me their name and number we’d call them when we were hiring. But with working in IT and with the amount of calls that I get from recruiters looking to pimp out their seasoned and skilled professionals, I don’t even bother being cordial.

I don’t even know why they call me personally. No where on my LinkedIn profile does it say “click here to contact this hiring manager!” If anything it should say, “click here to be shutdown before you finish your bitchin’ sales pitch!”

I write this all down in Notes.app and post because I assume you’re all interested.

Here’s the sweet jam:
