I’ve been trying to force myself to learn about zsh since Apple switched the default shell (why, Apple, why?!). One of my biggest annoyances has been the unexpected munging of the Meta-Backspace combination.

So my basil is still growing strong, as you can see. And that’s after I added the additional light arm to the Click & Grow, and also trimmed a number of branches off to give to my Mom for her cooking needs.
