Taming zoom with ratpoison

If you use a manual tiling window manager (ratpoison), chances are zoom is misbehaving when you want to minimize it.

The minimized window steals the focus and you can't do anything while the window is minimized.

If the window is maximized you have to manually corner it somewhere (at least wasting 25% of your screen).

But! I found a way to use zoom while letting you work while you don't see the screen.

It's a tiny shellscript that pinpoints the Zoom full window, and then relegates it to a 1 pixel window on the top of the screen.  Very simple, but it works wonders for me.

the simplest bookmark manager ever

So this is not even a bookmark manager with proper tags or anything.

It's just a stupid combination of shell tricks that compose into a quick memo browser.

I guess I'll keep reinventing program launchers and fuzzy finders till I die (first ratfinder version being from 2006)
