• ## The Keys to the Kingdom

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.

• ## 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).

How about this: $ emoji chicken
🐔

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

• ## Inlining plaintext attachments in Gmail

When you send a text message to a Gmail email address (at least from an iPhone using AT&T), you get something like this:

It's vaguely annoying to have to click through every single time just to see what the message is, especially when various extensions (such as uMatrix) break overlay rendering or when you have multiple attachments.

Much better would be to just display the plaintext attachments inline:
