Week 35: My notes from rich dad and poor dad, effective deleting in vim, and Thirukkural #942 on information obesity

Books & links

I published my notes from Rich Dad and Poor Dad. Next, I'm picking Refactoring, 2nd edition.

Effective deleting

I'm learning how to effectively delete in vim with key combinations in NORMAL mode.


Navigation Combination Replace navigation with delete
move forward by a word w dw
move backwards by a word b db
Go to line N :N eg: :3 for jumping to 3rd line :Nd

You can also delete the current line by dd and x to delete the character that's under the cursor. Since all of these are vim shortcuts on doom emacs, you can use them on vim elsewhere too.

Thirukkural #942

மருந்தென வேண்டாவாம் யாக்கைக்கு அருந்தியது
அற்றது போற்றி உணின் - குறள் 942

His body needs no drugs who only eats
After digesting what he ate before

I've been thinking about this thirukkural for some time. Though it talks about medicine, I think it can be applied to our urge to keep consuming information every day. I started this year with 8943, but currently, it is at 9464. ~500 links in 2 months. I need to devise a strategy and burn this list down.
