Run, Developer, Run!

Xiaomi Mi Band 1S fair review

Xiaomi released affordable fitness band, got excellent reviews from major news sites because of its features, then removed these features by update (like Smart Alarm, Vibration on call). Although features are still advertised. Reason of this is still unknown - either they want to push customers to next version, or just want save resources on development and support.

Notification Tip

So some of services allow you to get email or push notifications. Thing is that probably you already receiving like a ton notifications per minute, and it really easy to miss important one.

There kind of was email from smoke detector that house if on fire, but it got lost somewhere between Twitter alerts and Instagram likes.

So for really-really important you can configure:

  • email → call in Itfff.com (if you fortunate to live in US)
  • email → Twilio.com in Zapier.com (if you even more fortunate to live in other place). Twilio.com will allow you to call yourself for free. Zapier.com will allow to make 100 email → call transactions in month. Should be enough (its more "routine" than "important" if theres more than 100)

Don't forget to put loud and distinctive ringtone to notification number, and allow it to pass "Do Not Disturb" mode.

Timer tip

When you need countdown or interval timer with rest, but don't wont to find and install any apps - just search it in Youtube. There's like million of different timers there.

Browser tip

It's good to view extension source before installing it in Vivaldi/Chrome etc. CRX Viewer makes it convenient to do that.

Nano tip!

Tired of getting Error writing ... Permission denied when you forget to type sudo using nano? Don't want to waste time retyping changes or moving it to and from temporary file? Copy this handy function to your .bashrc to automatically use sudo if file requires higher permissions.

Same for Fish shell

Hello

Hello,

my name is Dmitry, I'm software developer and this is my blog. My passions are minimalism and continuous improvement1. Plan is to share short notes in Broken English about awesome or useful technical stuff I encounter. Also I'll share lots of useful tips. Picked name 'Developer Run' since I'll write notes on the run. I also enjoy running and always pick bad names in general.

What this blog will be about? Mostly about paranoia, penny-pinching, minimalism, and Linux stuff. Also we will feature random rant's.

This is static blog generated by very custom scripts hosted on surge.sh for free, because I have strong belief that thats how blogs should function.
