Never heard of roaster/non-roasted, need to check what the normal one in Israel/Palestine is. The one I like the most is Al-Karawan and hell that is like 7 times the price at home O.O

Sumac is an interesting spice to put in Hummus, never heard of anyone doing that but hey, it it tastes good :D We use it mainly in one special dish called Musakhan. It is basically tons of onions and chicken covered in massive amounts of sumac and served on bread soaked with the oil from the onions. One of my favorites and I just had a smell-memory activated by typing that! You should try it out :)

Nice to see some arabic dishes posted :) I don't know how you make hummus but we also have a simple recipe in the family that everyone likes. The most important thing is to start from dry chickpeas, soak them overnight, add one teaspoon of baking powder and then cook them on low heat for about 4 hours. You can skim off the peels depending on how "nutty" you want the taste.

Use good Tahini. It make a big different and use the water you strained to dilute it out...

Last Saturday I got lucky. You know those days where there is a party somewhere and you just feel too lazy to go and feel more like staying at home? I had one of those evenings but then decided to push myself and leave the house. And man I am glad I did that. I stumbled into a small venue where Kill Emil was DJing. It was 3 hours of surprises, beauty, dancing, fun, shaking, sweating all of it. Here is a more relaxed set he played a few months ago, enjoy :)

As I am rather fresh to programming and (because of bioconductor) my first language is R, I haven't checked out anything else but Python is on my list because more and more data analysis tools are showing up for python...

I use emacs because of org-mode and not the other way around.

I haven't found anything in which I can combine writing, latex, coding (in any language I want), to-do list in one single document/system.

An example of how I do work in the lab. I have one org-mode file per experiment. The experiment is written in org-mode style which is similar (or even simpler) than markdown. One combination exports it to pdf/html/odt, which is a nice thing. This org-mode file is in a folder with all the files and data I generated that are associated with the experiment. Tables are imported and then processes mainly with R. Tables can be generated inside org-mode even with simple spreadsheet capabilities, outputs from code can be embedded directly in the file and exported, the source code can be either hidden or also exported etc.

Now every headline in the file can be turned into a to-do item with a deadline/schedule date, tags etc. The nice thing about org-mode is the Agenda. A place in which you can aggregate all your experiment files and only show the todo items from it.

I find it very powerful to use because the options are endless. I know you like python, check out Scimax which is a version of org-mode that is optimized for all the things I mentioned above. They write their publications with it and they mainly use python...

You are correct, the example was wrong. They bolded numbers should be the same :)

Some things work with xargs or GNU parallel but not everything... :(

Thank you! I will check it out :)

Had to think of Death Note somehow...

I had troubles figuring out something else. I have two input files and 4 output files per sequence and 115 of those. So I needed a for loop that takes the name of the sequence (blabla001_1.seq) finds the second part of the pair (blabla002_2.seq) then feeds that into a java command that gives 4 outputs using the names of the files.

I am used to writing scripts in R so I didn't know how to do that for bash. At the end I found a script that is supposed to do it, took it apart and understood how it works. 10 minutes ago I got my results :)

I was just trying to figure out how to write a for loop in bash a few minutes ago. I feel like this stuff should be standard curriculum for ANYONE studying science!

And again, I see the parallels.

Tried the online dating thing just to find out that I neither match with anyone on Tinder nor I am weird enough for OKCupid... Also decided to delete everything. I am at the point where I crave a relationship which makes the whole situation much worse as I feel annoyed by the feeling of needing something that bad.

Had to stop running or any other sport apart from Yoga as I am having some weird pain around my shins. This usually comes when I return to doing sports after a break and overdo it...

I don't know how much you like emacs org-more but it has a really nice time tracking system built in that is also easy to use to generate graphs etc., just in case you want an alternative to Toggl or just a crazy powerful editor...
