Day of the New Dan

Welcome to Day of the New Dan, a dump place for ideas and projects from my ever changing interests.

Time Lapse Assembler is a tool for creating time lapse movies from a sequence of images. An open source command line version tlassemble is also available.


Sermon is a command line serial monitor and transmitter which has several advantages over typical alternatives like screen and the Arduino serial monitor.

Full documentation and source code is available on github

Introducing Vim Shebang Run

A very simple plugin that detects the shebang line of the current file, if it exists the file is executed with the given command. The file does not have to have executable permissions.

Get the source.


or map it to something convenient in your .vimrc:

nnoremap <leader>r :ShebangRun <CR>


The preferred way is to use Vundle.

Bundle 'dbridges/vim-shebang-run'

or pathogen

$ cd ~/.vim/bundle
$ git clone git://
