Package hyperref is quite handy for making a compiled LaTeX document more accessible, by allowing to quickly jump to references (back to the text with package backref), section headings (from the table of contents) and weblinks.
By default, links are marked by a coloured rectangles, which only appear on screen, not in print. If one wants to get rid of the rectangles, there are options. However, there is also the
colorlinks that marks hyperlinks by changing their text colour. However, these makes all link types become coloured. There is a way to reset certain link types to the default text colour, just by setting their colour to an empty value like this:
The trick is the empty value for
linkcolor. It applies to internal links (e.g. entries in the table of contents listing), which are thus not touched. This trick can be extended to the other fields
anchorcolor if needed, to either not change or change their colour.
Under Windows, I rely on trusty FreeCommander for all my file management needs. And I use Cygwin for having my most needed shell programs nearby. Sometimes there is the need to quickly open a Cygwin terminal in the current folder within FreeCommander.Luckily, there is already a popular StackOverflow question for that. Unfortunately, most answers rely on registry editing or installing the additional
chere utility. However, the answer by user Tom Kay does neither and works quite well for FreeCommander. Here is how: Continue reading “How to launch Cygwin in the active FreeCommander directory”
Laid-back Reggae tunes. Spanish band We&Dem, according to Spanish Wikipedia article, has been founded in 2002 in pictoresque Zaragoza, Aragon. Influenced by Bob Marley, they craft solid, unsurprising Reggae tracks. 15 tracks, just short over one hour, made it into this 2007 release, which was published on Jamendo and Autoeditados, a Spanish publishing platform. Find my two recommended tracks and the download link below: Continue reading “We&Dem –  Nosotros Y Ellos”

Then there is the occasional late appointment, and you run into collisions because you did not look at your private calendar before accepting a meeting invitation. What to do?

Beautiful, easy listening Jazz. While there is no single smashing hit among the 10 songs, this release offers a consistent listening experience for almost an hour. Instrumental pieces, ranging from piano solo to a richly orchestrated saxophone jam. Only occasional hums are the only vocal parts. Recording and mixing are excellent, and is for my untrained ears up to par to excellent live recordings of Jazz concerts.

Meditative psychadelic rock. Ok, the release notes advertise this as Pop, “without a shadow of doubt”. I tend to disagree, but what do words matter? For a change, I’ll discuss three of the release’s 7 tracks.

Instrumental progressive rock at its best. This over 10 year old album by JT Bruce contains just over one hour of meticulously produced music. No lyrics, but attention to detail throughout the 16 tracks. If you like this classic, you might also enjoy his 2015 release Vandal of Fortune (Jamendo). Continue reading “JT Bruce –  Anomalous Material”

Kickstarter-enabled public domain score and recording of a real classic. By raising over $23,000, she was able to have the original notes transcribed to a modern 58-pages score and, based on that, produce a high-quality recording of her interpreting the whole work on a not too shabby instrument in a not too shabby studio. All in all, the result is well worth the effort! Continue reading “Kimiko Ishizaka –  The Open Goldberg Variations”
Reference for Goa & Psy Trance compilations. Monotonous? Yes. Endless beets? Absolutely. Simplistic harmonies? Very much so! If you can with these “deficiencies” of the genre, this release will be an enjoyable ride for your ears. While the music does not offer too much detail to the conscious listener, but is great for recreational, background or serious dancing situations.
