Displacement theory

I have an absolute stack of accounts to do, way overdue and way lost in the move. So, what better displacement activity than installing new software in Ubuntu?

I have an absolute stack of accounts to do, way overdue and way lost in the move.

So, what better displacement activity than installing new software in Ubuntu?

Enter the SuperCollider. It's a programming language and environment for music (which incidentally my brother uses), and there's a fantastically easy installer for Ubuntu which makes use of gedit, the default text editor for the GNOME desktop.

SuperCollider for Human Beings

Not content with making weebly noises, I also installed the Oblivion dark theme, plus the very nice Advanced Editing Plugin.

My only real gripe with gedit is that moving between words can be a bit haphazard, ie the cursor can jump to unexpected places. However, I'm sure this is a User Error, and that it's all configurable ;)

Damn, now I'd better get back to my admin…
