vim is one of the tools one can use for years and still discover new features
or better ways to accomplish something. One of these features are tabs, which I
didn't know exist until today. Although splitting windows is fine for most
tasks, sometimes I wish to edit multiple ...
Currently I'm writing my bachelor thesis in mathematics and for noting what I
still have to do or mark some difficulties, I used to add comments to the
.tex-code. However, when printing the file or viewing the compiled output,
these obviously won't be displayed. Gladly a quick ...
Surfer is a program for
visualizing algebraic surfaces. Since I need it for my algebraic geometry
class, I wanted it to compile and install on my funtoo machines, however the

In my last post about Haskell I showed how you can interact with the user via

is, since ...
I found many useful tutorials for Haskell which do a great job explaining the
language details and the mathematical nature of it, however, almost none gets
you hacking in a few moments so you can experience Haskells power in the real
world. But since using a new language is at ...
For editing LaTeX-documents I use exclusively vim with the great
LaTeX-Suite. Usually I have an
automatically refreshing pdf-viewer like evince next to my editor, and compile
manually with pdflatex from another terminal, so after each compilation my
changes appear in the pdf-viewer. Since I'm using a tiled window manager ...
I guess one of the reasons why many people use dropbox is, that it makes file
synchronization trivially easy for the end-user. However, it only provides
limited space and you have to trust all your data to a third party (or use some
kind of encrypted files, which makes it ...
So, this is not really administrative, but since I
searched very long for a solution, I wanted to document
it at least for myself. All information can also be found on
