## The Aeronaut's Windlass

Well. Jim Butcher did it again.

I love the Dresden Files. I love Codex Alera. I love The Aeronaut's Windlass.

## Duplicating AeroSnap on OSX with Hammerspoon

Relatively recently, I switched my last Windows machine over to OSX. For the most part, it's been great. One bit of functionality that I've been missing though is AeroSnap. Specifically the ability to use a keyboard shortcut to move windows to the left/right half of a monitor.

Three days left in 2015 and I realized I had finished everything on my original 2015 Reading List, there were only 3 days left in the year, and I had two books left to read so I needed a quick read. After Necroscope, I also needed something a bit lighter.

Garth Nix's' The Keys to the Kingdom series fills both of those needs.

## Command line unicode search

Similar to Monday's post about command line emoji search, I often find myself wanting to look up Unicode characters. I have a custom search engine / bookmark set up in Chrome / Firefox (

`uni %s`

maps to`http://unicode-search.net/unicode-namesearch.pl?term=%s&.submit=Submit&subs=1`

). That actually works great, but given how relatively much of my day I spend on the command line, I thought it would be interesting to do something there:`$ uni delta ⍋ apl functional symbol delta stile ⍙ apl functional symbol delta underbar ⍍ apl functional symbol quad delta ≜ delta equal to Δ greek capital letter delta δ greek small letter delta ẟ latin small letter delta ƍ latin small letter turned delta 𝚫 mathematical bold capital delta 𝜟 mathematical bold italic capital delta 𝜹 mathematical bold italic small delta 𝛅 mathematical bold small delta 𝛥 mathematical italic capital delta 𝛿 mathematical italic small delta 𝝙 mathematical sans-serif bold capital delta 𝞓 mathematical sans-serif bold italic capital delta 𝞭 mathematical sans-serif bold italic small delta 𝝳 mathematical sans-serif bold small delta ᵟ modifier letter small delta`

## Command line emoji search

Sometimes, I find myself wanting to communicate in emoji.

How about this:

`$ emoji chicken 🐔 $ emoji "which came first, the @emoji{:chicken:} or the :egg:" which came first, the 🐔 or the 🍳`
