- Adding tasks to my todolist client from every app I use(including my bookmarking service when I bookmark with specific tags)
- Changing terminal colours based on time of the day(lower brightness in the evenings and hence dark colours, too much sunlight in the mornings and hence solarized themes)
- Automatically message people who message me based on
priority(parents immediately/girlfriend a longer buffer).
- Filters on said messages incase a few require my intervention
- Phone alerts on specific emails
- Waiting for a server which you were working with to recover from a 503(happens often in dev environments) and you are tired of checking every 5 seconds: Ping scripts which message my phone while I go play in the rec area.
- Disable my phone charging when it nears 95% (I'm an android dev and hate that my phone is always charging)
- Scraping websites for specific information and making my laptop ping when the scenario succeeds(I dont like continuously refreshing a page)
I dont think several of these count as automation as opposed to just some script work. But I prefer reducing keystrokes as much as possible for things which are fixed.
Relevant to this discussion:Excerpt from the github page
>OK, so, our build engineer has left for another company. The dude was literally living inside the terminal. You know, that type of a guy who loves Vim, creates diagrams in Dot and writes wiki-posts in Markdown... If something - anything - requires more than 90 seconds of his time, he writes a script to automate that.
I'm curious what these automatic messages say. Are you talking about something like an answering machine message? "I'm at home but my phone hasn't moved in 20 minutes so I'm probably in the shower"?
Charging to 80% and keeping it there by just letting the charger supply the operating current would probably be best if phones supported it.
Any hints appreciated! I'm also experimenting with Telegram, which I think will also solve my issue.
I don't want to be that guy, but a music collection made of probably repeatedly lossy encoded Youtube rips sounds as if it doesn't deserve the name. Not to mention the whole piracy angle - I'm not trying to claim moral authority, but music is DRM-free and reasonably priced these days. There are hardly any arguments for piracy left.
Definitely sounds like you want to be that guy.
