Icecast repository on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

The version of icecast available in the 14.04 default repositories isn’t the most up to date. Rather than downloading the .deb package you can simply add their repository to your installation:

sudo sh -c "echo deb ./ >>/etc/apt/sources.list.d/icecast.list"
wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -


Handling NERDTree when Vim starts up

The NERDTree plugin is great for making Vim feel more like an IDE but it can really get in the way if you have it enabled all the time. Especially if vi is your default editor on an Ubuntu system. So adding this to your vimrc file looks like a good solution. Only open the file browser if no file name is specified on the command line:

autocmd VimEnter * if !argc() | NERDTree | endif
