Some code in my dotfiles gradually grew into a small, efficient Zsh plugin manager: zcomet. I am not surprised that it increasingly reflects my preferences, but I was pleasantly surprised to see it take second place on my laptop in zimfw/zsh-framework-benchmark — just behind Zim itself.
It all started because I needed some routines to download and source code when Zinit would not run. Zinit does not work for Zsh v5.07 and lower, and I not infrequently find version 4.3.11 on servers. So my zcomet plugin manager is backwards-compatible to 4.3.11.
I particularly like the trigger command, which mimicks Zinit’s trigger-load — it lazy-loads plugins by creating placeholder functions for their commands and only loading the code when a command is invoked. That allows me to “load” things that I do not actually need on a day-to-day basis without really affecting my startup time at all.
This library of equalization curves allows you to listen to 78 rpm records with correct equalization in real time. Playback may be done using any program, as the correction to equalization is done using the Equalizer APO system-wide equalizer (Windows required). You can also use these filters to listen to raw transfers enjoyably.
Be sure to visit my new website, elsiecarlisle.com. There I intend to cover (eventually) all aspects of the life and music of English dance band singer Elsie Carlisle, one of the more prominent and attractive recording and radio personalities of the 1920s-1940s.
