Linux, Android And Autonomous Vehicles: Who Says Elephants Cannot Dance?

Because I spend so much time in the terminal, I invested some time to make it a pleasant environment to work in. My goal is to find a balance between having a feature-rich terminal without wasting too many system resources. Read more
