How to show full file path in the status bar or title bar in Sublime and Visual Studio Code

You can see that the full file path is being show at the top title bar.

If you feel that you want to show the full file paths in your favorite editors - Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code, follow the simple steps below:

Sublime Text (on a Mac):

Goto Sublime Text -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "show_full_path": true
}

Visual Studio Code (on a Mac):

Goto Visual Studio, Code -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong}"
}

As a small tweak, i added the following into my visual studio title, as it allows any custom string:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong} - work hard, play harder"
}

Now you can see the full path of the files in the top title bar.

You are in a cold conference room, Do you want to use your mac as a heater?

Imagine that you are in cold conference room and you kind of feeling the cold on your head. What do you do when you are in a serious meeting and just can't get out?

If you have a MacBook, you might have a solution.

Use your terminal to run either of these commands to keep your CPU at above 80% or if you want you can run them both.

$ openssl speed

and/or 

$ yes > /dev/null

The first command just outputs the ssl cryptography stats and it keeps your cpu busy. The second command just prints the character "y" into IO.

So try it out and let me know how it works! :D
