PyGTK bindings & vim syntax highlighting

Python bindings as implemented the PyGTK way use files with extensions ”.defs” and ”.override”. By default in vim these will not have syntax highlighting.

Create ~/.vim if necessary, and in ~/.vim/filetype.vim put:

if exists("did_load_filetypes")
  finish
endif
augroup filetypedetect
  au! BufRead,BufNewFile *.override             setfiletype c
  au! BufRead,BufNewFile *.defs                 setfiletype scheme
augroup END

Afghanistan and opium

I heard on the radio this morning that the US have a new counternarcotics strategy for Afghanistan – they’re going to pay rewards to governors for reducing poppy planting, among other measures. 90% of opium production takes place in that country, and it’s a delicious irony that the Taliban insurgency is probably mostly being funded by their enemies’ heroin addictions. Doubly ironic because the Taliban had nearly eradicated opium production by 2001.
