Being unable to use Firefox vim bindings on Google app pages for work is really chapping my ass.

Thank you past me for writing a script to set up everything I need for Fedora. Not having to remember what you need kicks ass.

Always feels good when you remember to stop yourself before diving into a critical thinking rabbit hole. Usually it's been done and then YOU GET THAT SHIT FO FREE
