On a multiuser environment, I added the ‘ps -fu’ bit to detect a gvim session, slightly more fool-resistant than just checking the result code of the –remote-send call.
ps -fu $LOGNAME | grep -v grep | grep gvim 2>/dev/null
if [ $? -ne 0 ]
gvim –remote-send “<ESC>:sp $CSCOPE_ROOT/$2<CR>:0<CR>:$1<CR>:-1<CR>” 2>/dev/null
Another Dave Ramsey Book, More Than Enough. If you need more inspiration to get your priorities straight, this is it:
I got the following book after listening to The Teaching Company‘s lecture series on Ancient Greece and Byzantium. I think I bought it through the History Book Club. You have to be an ancient history and classical literature fan to really get into this book, but it’s interesting how it draws parallels between modern history and ancient history and the use of biological and chemical weapons.
With all the Texas Hold ’em craze, I bought the following book, Ken Warren Teaches Texas Hold ’em. It’s valuable, but I think that I might go for the original Doyle Brunson book next time.
Whether you’ve gotten yourself into a financial hole, or you’re just starting out in life, this book should definitely be a first stop. It’s an easy read, so even if you don’t have a good reading attention span, you shouldn’t have any trouble making it through this book. If you live paycheck-to-paycheck, you need this book.
Reading list of books previously picked up…
- Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising… – an interesting examination in what makes the wealthy become wealthy.
- Dogs Never Lie About Love – insight into the emotional world of dogs, and excerpts of discussions about dogs.
- The Dog who Loved too Much – Dr. Nicholas Dodman’s first book on dog behavioral problems. Many of the case examples in book are somewhat heart-breaking; however, the tales of the people and their pets should also be motivating. Dr. Dodman’s writing style in this book is somewhat dry, but the details in the pages easily make this book a page turner.
