notepad plus plus for Linux

I use notepad++ at work on a windows machine, I find it great for taking notes, and editing SQL scripts on the go.

For a long time Geany has been my goto Linux file editor, but it might now get more limited use in the future now that notepad++ is available in Linux, via snap 🙂

Crazy too, that I think this is my first snap install!

This is still a Windows exe, installed via Wine, so still not a fully fledged Linux install, but it has all of the familiar features.

Simply install by typing the below into a terminal:
sudo snap install notepad-plus-plus

How to make a bouncing ball simulator in Python

Scrolling through my Twitter posts this caught my eye, Boing Boing, a cool well presented project, and something a little different than what I use Python for.

In the gym earlier in the week when this awesome promo video from The Beatles started playing on the large screen on the back wall; I’ve had this guitar riff in my head ever since 🙂

Here’s what the band said about the song


Nearly finished Horizon Zero Dawn, I just don’t want it to finish. I’ve been travelling around the map, enjoying the scenery, finding all of the collectables.

Then discovered that Call of Duty Black Ops iii was free on the PS4 this week, so my attention has been diverted… times like this I am thankful for having fibre 🙂

It’s been one of my favourite CoD multiplayer games since Modern Warfare, had heaps of fun, and am keeping a positive KDR 🙂

Thinking of making a commitment to completing Bloodborne next from my list of games to finish… but no point rushing in to anything eh?
