Map Search Key To Control Key On Acer C720 Chromebook

I am a vim user, and for all my home and office computers, I map the CapLock key to Ctrl key.

Bought Domain For My Github Pages

Today I bought my first personal domain zhuyong.me and pointed to my github pages. The reason why I bought domain is to push myself, to encourage myself to continously update this blog. Plus, the domain + 1 year pravacy protection only cost US$8.99 under current promotion. The setup is pretty easy: create CNAME file under source/ folder.

Few days back, I came by an article mentioned blogging on Github; after read through the article, I felt that’s the blog engine I really want. My blog is all about programming stuff, so static pages would fulfill my requriements. Blogging on Github require some initial setup, but with Octopress, the task becomes simple.
