hmmm... sachac slacking off from work...?
sachac
e1f: I'm updating wiki links. =) It's a little mindnumbing.
Fortunately, I've made a defun that automates almost all of it.
Out of gratitude for the awesomeness that's Emacs, I thought I'd pay it forward. <grin>
e1f
which brings up the philosophical question.... if you get emacs to do your work, are you still working
tensorpudding
you still have to do work to get emacs to do your work
e1f
it's the difference between management and workers
sachac
Unfortunately, it's on the intranet and it deals with internal stuff, or I'd be tempted to see if I could delegate running an Emacs macro to a virtual assistant ;)
Conclusion: temp buffers, yank, kill, re-search-forward, alists, and read-string = awesome
Besides, I missed hanging out with you folks! =)
zeus
sachac: I love emacs too!! :P

lovers. Anyone have a good method for editing root owned files on a remote machine? Seems that setting up a tramp proxy list for each machine and then calling browsing around in a remote shell and finally using C-x C-f <remote file> is a bit tedious
remove calling from that...
zeus
crowbar`: I have an ssh key for that and just log in using the root user =)
         

sachac
crowbar`: Do you tend to edit the same files again and again?
crowbar`: Having some kind of a shortcut text file on your system, maybe using ffap - that could save you time and keystrokes.
tensorpudding
when you see repitition, kill it with macros
hober
sachac!
sachac
hober! =)
johnw
sachac!

Also, now that I have two laptops, I can watch #emacs in the background. =)

Is johnw the nick of John Weigley?
johnw
yes it is
neosoothsayer
Hello John, wonderful to be in your company in this channel!
johnw
hi neosoothsayer!
sachac
johnw: It's hard to believe that I've been tracking my books with ledger for four years now. =)
johnw: Good stuff.
johnw
sachac: :) are you using the 3.0 prerelease yet? it's almost fully done
neosoothsayer
johnw: Did you get back to the US?
sachac
Not yet, I'll go check out your notes =)
johnw
all bugs but one are closed, and all that remains is the manual
neosoothsayer: yes, I'm in New Jersey now
neosoothsayer
Did you move out of COS?
johnw
neosoothsayer: yes, I am in Caldwell, NJ now
shabble
sachac: sacha chua?
sachac
shabble: Yup =)
neosoothsayer
Hello Sacha, your blog is a great read!
         

sachac
I'm almost done with my mindnumbing wiki editing thing! Thank you, Emacs
shabble
sachac: good stuff. I've enjoyed your emacsings on yoru blog
sachac
I haven't been blogging as much about Emacs lately, which is a pity because people are doing so many cool things with it.

i have trouble using either PGG or EPA (for GnuPG interfacing) under Emacs23.1.

sorry for flooding the channel. :o
johnw
maxigas: use gist.github.com
maxigas
i have a gpg-agent running, and Mew (mail mode for Emacs) can use it as well.
neosoothsayer
johnw: I am waiting for more essays on newartisans.com. :)
johnw
neosoothsayer: yes, I haven't been blogging much; too busy with other things
maxigas
johnw: ok, next time i'll do that.
johnw
been working hard on Ledger
neosoothsayer
johnw: is anyone helping you with Ledger? I remember Sriharsha talking about trying to help you maintain it
johnw
no, no one is helping me atm, but that's OK for now
sachac: how's things?
sachac
johnw: Settling into work nicely, although am still strongly tempted to start my own business. <grin> I might explore that after my permanent residency papers are sorted out. My new project has had me making presentations and preparing training material, so I haven't been coding--or tweaking my coding environment. =(
johnw: It's all very interesting, though, so that somewhat makes up for it.
johnw
i wish you the best of luck with your plans!!
gotta run now, but it was great seeing you again
hacim
can soemone tell me how I can add a CC in a gnus followup?
sachac
hacim: Just type in Cc: and the address on the next line
hacim
sachac: thats easy :)
remote
hello
i've just moved from xterm to gnome-terminal and am seeing different behavior in emacs
i'm wondering about some hilighting, it seems like it's randomly highlighting spaces when i write them
though if i erase the highlighted spaces and re-write them it won't always highlight them
any idea what that is?
ashawley
remote: screenshot?
remote
sure ;-)
i'll post it when i see it again
but it's really just highlighting spaces!
single space or consecutive spaces
thought it might be python mode warning me for tabs but they're really just spaces...
it's blinking now!
it stopped
can't really get a clear screenshot of it
this is odd
it's not consistent
well i'll see if my code breaks otherwise i'll just ignore it
jlf
remote: is TERM set to a weird value?
sounds like control codes may be being misinterpreted
ashawley
remote: Actually I see what you're talking about.
I can only get one space highlighted per line.
I think it does have to do with interactions with the blinking cursor.
remote
TERM's set to xterm
ashawley: it just doesn't feel right, as-if i should look for something there but nothing there is to look!
ashawley
remote: Definitely not an Emacs-specific issue, IMO.
remote
well something's causing me psycological issues! :)
sword
NBSP is colored in a term
Some pink color by default IIRC
remote: put point over the space that's funny and M-x describe-char
remote
ok
category: a:ASCII graphic characters 32-126 (ISO646 IRV:1983[4/0]) l:Latin
"there are text properties here: fontified t"
it's the same than the other non-highlited btw
sword
So it's something with your term most likely
M-x getenv TERM
ashawley
remote: Check out. http://imagebin.org/71901 Similar?
remote
it's set to xterm
yeah it looks like that
sometimes i get a series of spaces highlighted however
crowbar`
Is there a way for me to automatically remove my own email address from the CC field on emails I'm replying all to in wanderlust?
sword
ashawley: can you list your active modes for that with C-h m?
sachac
crowbar: There should be, as Gnus does that too
crowbar: Let me see how I've got mine set up
crowbar: Try setting your user-mail-address
johnsu01
(setq message-dont-reply-to-names
'("johns@fsf.org" "john@wjsullivan.net" "johns@gnu.org"))
sachac
Oh! There you go
johnsu01
might work for Wanderlust too, since it's just message-mode
crowbar
sachac: johnsu01, I had that already. Turns out I also had to set wl-draft-always-delete-myself to t
sorry for not mentioning it
sachac
Wonderful! =)
crowbar
oh, wait. I didn't have message-dont-reply-to-names. I have wl-user-mail-address-list set and then (setq wl-draft-always-delete-myself t)
