I had never touched the Irssi default theme before, I'm very happy with it. I've been using adv_windowlist for a few years now to manage the many channels I'm in. And recently I switched to a new terminal that apparently supports more colors than my previous one, and adv_windowlist had … more

Salt This can be annoying when using SaltStack, you run saltutil.sync_grains, or a highstate, but your custom grain is never synced to the minion.
