GoogleFood: Fixing slow font menu on Microsoft Office for Mac

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

This one took me a while to figure out.

Whenever I was using Microsoft PowerPoint or Word, when I tried to drop down the font menu, I would get the “Busy” spinning beach ball for about five seconds, then the menu would open.


Googlefood: Running luminus in Cursive (Clojure)

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

It took me a bit to figure out how to use the REPL inside Cursive with a Luminus project.

The key difference is you have to add a Leiningen Run Configuration, instead of the usual Clojure Repl Configuration, with how you’d normally run it on the command line.

After that, create a Clojure REPL Configuration that connects to the port that is opened by the run configuration.

Example: If you normally do this:

lein run
lein repl :connect 7000

Then the Leiningen Run Configuration is the first command, and the Clojure REPL Configuration is the second one.

Picture, 1000 words, etc.
