[WayBack] Badass Terminal: FCU WSL Edition (oh-my-zsh, powerlevel9k, tmux, and more!)

It’s that time again! The time to write another epic blog post, this time for WSL, also known as Windows Subsystem for Linux.

CompuServe’s forums, which still exist, are finally shutting down on 20171215

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/11/20

An era ends: [Archive.isCompuServe’s forums, which still exist, are finally shutting down

Before there was a World Wide Web, a sizable chunk of all meaningful conversation between computer users happened in the forums at CompuServe, which was the dominant online service until AOL came along. There was a CompuServe forum for everything from PC hardware to comic books, the signal-to-noise ratio was generally high, and … they if you … will be removed from what remains of CompuServe on December 15.
