Emacs for MacOS

To download latest recommended emacs build for MacOS you have to options
  1) https://emacsformacosx.com/ (then access it from Launchpad )
  2) https://github.com/d12frosted/homebrew-emacs-plus (the use emacs from console)

The first option is the simplest and fastest one, while the second is more feature rich (see readme of repository).

Also I recommend for newcomers (in case of struggling with emacs interface) to try spacemacs

It way more user-friendly and has some features you can like very much (like `hybrid` editing mode).

Eve Online Stranger Diary

Recently I've found out a great article about pros and cons of each rase in EVE

To sum up they are:
Amarrarmor, beam weaponry, dronesslow, limited damage types
Caldarishield tech, hybrid turrets and missilesmissiles are slow, limited damage types, weak agains EM damage
Gallentearmor, hybrid turrets and dronesdrones specific cons (travel time, can be destroyed), limited damage types
Minmatarprojectile weapons, speed, armor/shieldhigh skill req-s, ship generally has lower hit points then others
So as far as I understand when creating a character only the race choice matters. Race affects starting skills, ship and level limits.

In the article mentioned before there are good list of highest possible skill limits for alpha clones.

Tips for busy people

Also I've found a very good video how to play efficiently and waste less time:

Tips for beginners

  • Try everything at the beginning and then stick to whatever you like (PvP, PvE, mining, visit wormholes, trade)
  • Join a corporation which shares your interests.
  • Go from smallest to largest ships to obtain all required skills.
  • High security space in fact not so secure, you can be easily killed for valuable cargo.
  • Don't be bothered because of scams, they are everywhere and this is a part of a game.
  • And as a result of last point: Do not fly what you afraid to loose :)
  • Do not waste to much on EVE and prevent life from happening with you (:

No Dart for Chrome :(

Some time ago I for the first time faced Dart and it fascinated me.
  • optionally strongly typed, because Dart can infer types;
  • top-level functions and variables support;
  • generic-types;
  • lexical closures (available for class declarations  as well);
  • implicit interfaces;
  • out of the box Future and Streams;
  • StringBuffer for efficient creation of long strings dynamically;
  • class mixins using with statement;
  • entry point in the main function;
But fascination was broken and as it appears I've missed a lot, just a single line:
We have decided not to integrate the Dart VM into Chrome.

Recently I have found a really neat vertical accordion in jQuery:
$(".accordion-toggle").click(function() {

        $(this).children().toggleClass("fa-angle-up fa-angle-down");
      } else {
        $(".accordion-toggle i").attr("class", "fa fa-angle-down");
        $(this).children().toggleClass("fa-angle-up fa-angle-down");
