managing $HOME
I'm not the first one who thought about managing their dotfiles & scripts in a (D)VCS in order to be able to have them in sync across different machines, & I even haven't re-invented the wheel for doing so. – short report on my experiences: after looking around a bit I decided to try movein (info page with links to downloads & a README, blog post, git repo) because it looked liked it would easily do what I'd like to do without getting in my way too much; which means e.g.: no symlink farm, & only one simple command to manage the whole setup. movein is a simple shell script that allows to setup & manage multiple modular repos tracking different sets of files quite easily, taking advantage of the powers of git & mr. & being written in shell means I also was able to make a few changes, which stew kindly accepted & applied to his tree already. in fact I'm just starting to use it for real, but it looks good so far, & I think I'm going to stick with it for the time being. 2 minor observations:
  • git in squeeze vs. wheezy/sid behave differently: the former happily & silently overwrites existing files, the latter dies loudly on each existing file. – not sure which behaviour I actually prefer.
  • running mr up on a couple of repos from a machine without an ssh key on the target machine is kind of boring ...

long night of museums 2011
"lange nacht der museen" – a warm late-summer evening, & it's amazing how many galleries, exhibition rooms, etc. innsbruck has. a quick list of my tour (all places in the city center, & just a few minutes away from each other by bike). as usual, the quality was mixed.
  1. kunstpavillon der tiroler künstlerschaft: no exhibition, & the projector for the movie wasn't ready yet
  2. neue galerie der tiroler künstlerschaft: weird something (the confusing way)
  3. fo.ku.s foto kunst stadtforum: a few boring photos
  4. galerie 22a: great paintings from carmen m selma
  5. galerie im taxispalais – galerie des landes tirol: some nice drawings, & a funny video
  6. kunstraum innsbruck: weird installation & video (but somewhat funny)
  7. gösser's: delicious zwickl (wait – that's not art in the strict sense, & not included in the "long night" ticket)
  8. fotoforum west: a projected photo blog
  9. galerie nothburga: some nice mini-sculptures, & some paintings, not my style
  10. artdepot – kommunikationszentrum für kunst und kultur: a few abstract (?) paintings, not my style
  11. galerie kass: a few paintings, not my style
  12. <some garden across the street from the last gallery>: music & fashion, if I understood it correctly
  13. aut. architektur und tirol: installations, in the wider sense; with an interesting tour
ps: the only places I knew beforehand were 6, ‚óŹ, & 8.
