hm anyone know if there's a quick way of navigating among a gazillion vim tabs? i tried searching but came up with naught :/

ideally, i could type a partial phrase which would match against filenames being buffered by open tab pages

ayoo we have (scripting safe!) forum markup a-going

I'm on the lookout for new freelance project gigs or part-time employed work. I'm fluent in C, Rust, JavaScript, Python and Ruby, with a bunch of experience (parsers, graphics programming, databases, backend, frontend, native applications, ...). My passion these days is no-bloat, no-nonsense, low-complexity tech that benefits humanity and solves actual problems. DM me or email simon@fdpl.io to get in touch. Cheers!

i found out this jam on itch.io, it's already started but the timing is very chill, more than two weeks to make a tamagotchi (?)
