Switching to zgen

As I already told you, I'm forced to use windows. With Cygwin and some extra work you get a usable shell. I ran antigen as manager for zsh plugins for a while, but I had a huge problem on the cygwin installation. It took very long if I start a new shell. Horribly long. Almost 7 seconds. That's nothing I can deal with. Especially when using tmux, starting a new session for another topic, open a new window to run another command, and so on. I could no longer deal with it.

But I found a solution that gave me a massive performance increase: zgen.

Additionally I decided to switch to prezto, but therefore I had to implement a bit of support into zgen. And it works nice, at least for me.

Social Networks

Well a few weeks ago I decided to quit nearly all the social networks. They produce a lot of white-bread information I do not take care of. But somehow you read your "streams" multiple times a day so you don't miss the one of a thousand news you are interested in. That's the reason I quit.
