After reading http://blog.rescuetime.com/2014/05/14/a-little-hack-that-made-our-remote-team-not-feel-so-remote-anymore/ a great idea came to my mind.
Create separate group (team) chat channel just for “social” purpose where the team members shared stories would flow in. For example new blog post, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter post, Foursquare check-in, etc. Every team member would provide his own shared stories via the services APIs. All stuff would be mainly automated.
I would like to know an automated solution for the scenario of leaving and coming home. Maybe the AFK set by the chat app is the ideal (privacy concerned) solution 🙂

Just because you can be connected at all times doesn’t mean you should.
Now I can mouse over to the notebook and work in Photoshop and mouse over back to my Linux desktop.

If you get the FATAL: unknown screen name `zeus’ check your hostname via the
hostname command in Linux. The hostname must correspond with the name in the config.
I just got bored with my old thin mousepad which caused me some wrist ache during long usage.
Finally I ordered a new and thicker one.
I choose SteelSeries QCK Heavy which is 6mm thick.
