MY I3 CONFIG FILE

Note added 20 June 2016: This file was made a good while ago when I was using i3 and may be out of date. I now use spectrwm, which I find has the same advantages as i3 and is more intuitive to use and configure, at least for me. See my blog for further details.

# this file has been auto-generated by i3-config-wizard(1).

# It will not be overwritten, so edit it as you like.
# # Should you change your keyboard layout somewhen, delete
# this file and re-run i3-config-wizard(1).
