Compose key for Windows

Github link:


Compose rules are supposed to be intuitive. Here are some examples:

  • ⎄ Compose ` aà
  • ⎄ Compose ' eé
  • ⎄ Compose ^ iî
  • ⎄ Compose ~ nñ
  • ⎄ Compose / oø
  • ⎄ Compose " uü
  • ⎄ Compose o c©
  • ⎄ Compose + -±
  • ⎄ Compose : -÷
  • ⎄ Compose ( 7 )
  • ⎄ Compose C C C P
  • ⎄ Compose < 3

Emoji sequences typically start with two ⎄ Compose hits:

  • ⎄ Compose ⎄ Compose a n g r yangry
  • ⎄ Compose ⎄ Compose g r i n n i n ggrin
  • ⎄ Compose ⎄ Compose s u s h isushi
  • ⎄ Compose ⎄ Compose s n a k esnake

A special Unicode input mode can be activated in the options and lets the user type in any Unicode character:

  • ⎄ Compose u 5 8 d Enter → ֍ (U+058D Right-Facing Armenian Eternity Sign)
  • ⎄ Compose u 2 3 f 0 Enteralarm_clock (U+23F0 Alarm Clock)

The full list of rules can be found by clicking on the WinCompose system tray icon or using the “Show Sequences…” menu entry:

first get the current ExecStart form your docker.service file:

    grep ExecStart /lib/systemd/system/docker.service
    the result is something like this:
    ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd -H fd://

now use this result to create a systemd docker drop-in configuration file. Create the service directory first therefore as well:

    mkdir /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d
    editor /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d/execWithDeviceMapper.conf

The file now must contain the following lines:

    ExecStart=/usr/bin/dockerd --storage-driver=devicemapper -H fd://

remove your old container (shamelessly stolen from @Andreas_Fuchs's post below :wink: )

    docker ps (to get the id)
    docker stop [id]
    docker rm [id]

restart systemd, docker and your container

    systemctl daemon-reload
    systemctl restart docker.service
    docker run -t -d -p -e 'domain=CLOUD.DOMAIN.TLD' --restart always --cap-add MKNOD collabora/code

Save reminder will prompt user to name new documents when a blank doc is open, if refused will show number of open unsaved documents. Autosaves named documents every 5 min.

Alt F11 in Word to open the VBA editor, click “Normal” to select the Normal template, and hit Insert –> Module to create a new module.  Paste the following code in the new module and save it.

Sub AutoNew()
  Dim objDoc As Document
  Dim strButtonValue As String
  Dim dtAskingTime As Date
  '  Initialization
  Set objDoc = ActiveDocument
  '  Set the asking time in 5 minutes.
  dtAskingTime = Now + TimeValue("00:05:00")
  If objDoc.Path <> "" Then
    Exit Sub
    strButtonValue = MsgBox("This document has not been saved yet." & vbCr & "Do you want to save the file?", vbYesNo)
    If strButtonValue = vbYes Then
      '  In case you click Cancel button, the macro continue running and prompting message in every 5 minutes.
      If objDoc.Path = "" Then
        Application.OnTime When:=dtAskingTime, Name:="AutoNew"
      End If
      Application.OnTime When:=dtAskingTime, Name:="AutoNew"
    End If
  End If
  Call CountUnsavedDoc
End Sub

Sub CountUnsavedDoc()
  Dim objDoc As Document
  Dim nDocUnsaved As Integer
  nDocUnsaved = 0

  For Each objDoc In Documents
    If objDoc.Path = "" Then
      nDocUnsaved = nDocUnsaved + 1
    End If
  Next objDoc
  nDocUnsaved = MsgBox(nDocUnsaved, 0, "Number of unsaved document")
End Sub

While there are so many fantastic images to choose from, I think the most awe-inspiring image that we, as a species, have created is the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field.

This is a long-exposure photo taken of a very small patch of what appeared to be empty space (its size is about equal to a 1mm x 1mm square held at arms length; or 1/13,000,000 of the night sky). The length of the exposure lasted from September 24, 2003; all the way through to January 16th of 2004. What it captured was nothing less than the nascency of the universe; galaxies of some 13 billion years in age (and in LY distance from us).

Nothing else can quite rival the scope of this image. While the Pale Blue Dot looks inward to reflect on our relative insignificance (and is quite impactful in its own right), the HUDF generates the same effect whilst looking outward. There are no less than 10,000 galaxies in this photo, each with as-many-or-more stars as our own Milky Way, and of course each being as mind-bogglingly vast. That all of these clusters could be contained in one insignificant blank patch of sky is a reminder of just how grand the universe is. How minute we, and our entire planet are. How we can’t possibly be alone in the vastness of space, but how we functionally might as well be. To my eyes, this photo is one of the crowning achievements of human discovery, and is quite simply extraordinary.
