she is clearly a vimmer
cvandusen
If she can't talk, I doubt she can type; that's what secretaries are for
kjfletch
Has emacs got something along the lines of isearch-forward/backward-url which will take the point to URLs in current buffer?
dragonhorse
kjfletch: excellent question. i don't need that feature, but there was a post just today about making isearch ignore comments.
kjfletch: and it also is somehting i want in org-mode: ignore non-visible text
(Action) btw i am ryoma
inclement
I put ' (defun flymake-get-tex-args (file-name) (list "latex" (list "-file-line-error-style" file-name)))' as per the wiki, but when I try flymake-mode on a .tex buffer it tells me 'program texify does not exist'
Isn't replacing texify what that code is supposed to do?
(Er, put as in 'put in my .emacs')
cluck
jlf: your point being? j.w.b.jr could hardly say "nuclear" and he was elected president _several_ times
sellout
And Steve Jobs can't pronounce "jaguar".
cvandusen
sellout: that's ironic!
cluck
(and before the excuses start sprouting, notice i never claimed he was elected fairly!)
         

Sketch
cluck: some say he was only elected once ;)
cluck
cvandusen: someone should've warned clinton about that ;)
cvandusen
warned him about what?
cluck
cvandusen: about what secretaries are for
cvandusen
I think someone did

Hiya
hmmm
I think I might have answered the question I was about to ask
Apologies
chrisb
tommylommykins: do we have a name for that? it happens to me too!
sellout
I call it sounding board syndrome ... or something. The work of figuring out how to phrase a question makes you state things clearly enough that the solution is apparent. Happens when I write emails all the time.
Boney
I know this.
tommylommykins
heh... I'd like to call it a 'time-to-bash-head-against-table-event'
At least in that case :)
Boney
I call it 'teadybear debugging', long ago in our lab one of the senior guys braught in a teadybear and sat him in the corner.
he would only help people with questions if they had already asked the teady bear and the teady bear couldn't help.
sellout
tommylommykins: the table is the sounding board hitting it with your head, causes it to vibrate and amplify the impact ;)
Boney
because often while asking the teady bear they'd work out the problem.
sellout
Boney: Teddybear ... but yeah, that's a great solution :)
Boney
twb calls this Polish Cleaning Lady debugging.
because it's when you need to talk to somebody and she might not be interested in programming or be able to speak english :-)
sellout
heh
         

technomancy
(Action) has also heard it called "rubber ducking"
Boney
it starts to get weird when one of the guys in your lab asks you "Paul, Do you have time to be a teady bear for me?"
technomancy
coding cuddles!
Boney
heh.
subopt
Can c++-mode do something like query-replace, but just on non-comment identifiers? (minor refactoring)
hugre
hello,
cluck
go away
hugre
my <tab> key is bound w/ indent-for-tab-command ;
cluck
(i bet you didn't expect that ;)
hugre
I'd like to know if there's a way to add it align-current
I beg your pardon ?
cluck
hugre: nvm, it was a joke, keep going
hugre
ok :)
actually, that's my question : is it possible to add a sequence to a key, like :
( do-ident then do-align )
?
cluck
make a lambda calling both and bind that to tab?

hi
how do I set up tramp so you it can ssh to a remote host and then run sudo to edit the file
multi isn't in emacs23
but how do you do it the new way
Hang on I think I found it
rgr
and how?
chrisdone
I have come to say my before-bed Emacs prayer.
Dear RMS Mathew Stallman and contributors to the Emacs project,
Thank you for producing a superior programmable document interface ("PDI"), or "editor". Thank you for making my life easier by allowing me to laugh in the faces of those who would think that an editor is good because it has a hard-coded feature, which Emacs can and does achieve! -- tailored to my BUSINESS NEEDS.
Thank you for working on Windows, OS X and Ubuntu without me actually noticing a difference.
Bless those who write their own keyboard macros, cherish those who write libraries, and provide women and mead to those who hack on the Emacs codebase itself.
Now, let us all send out our love to that one developer who wishes to embed WebKit into Emacs to make all our (read: my) dreams come true.
May all your C-h's end in discovery and your C-x b's swift.
Amen.
hugre
thx for your answer cluck, I'll try tomorrow, I can't get a working defun now
good night

dragonhorse
is there a way to see recent appt notifications?
or upcoming ones?
cluck
also, there is more than one person doing work that could lead to having a hip browser engine (though from what you wrote you're probably only aware of the ezbl guy)
dragonhorse: i was going to say yes but my org-foo has abandoned me and i can't remember the command
k-man
i saw some service a while ago that gives some sort of number you can include in an email, and it can be used as a proof of when you sent the email?
or something like that
anyone seen something like that?
fledermaus
(Action) stares blankly
skorpan
k-man: yeah, you send your SSN to cool_man_2083@hotmail.com
k-man
ssn?
oh
right, thats some sort of sarcastic joke, i get it
skorpan
not sarcastic
k-man
unfortunately i don't live in the states so i don't have an ssn
skorpan
neither do i
rolando
k-man: pgp?
or pgb?
i forgot the acronym...
,,g pgp
fsbot
rolando
don't know if that's what you're looking for
skorpan
there's gpg as well
,,g gpg

k-man
rolando: yeah, i seem to recall it was some kind of cryptographic thing, but i forget the details.
rolando
or that...
it's not exactly a number, more like a big string (hash)?
k-man
i think they were in early stages and needed some volume for the system to really work
rolando
I'm not very knowledgeable (thanks flyspell)
dragonhorse
cluck: ok. k-man there is a timestamp service. do sha1sum and send it to them or somehting. or you can just email to any major mail service maybe. (i'm ryoma)
rolando
early stages? I think both gpg and pgp are old
k-man
rolando: no, the timestamp thing was in early stages, not gpg/pgp
bob2
there's lots of timestamping services
k-man
bob2: where are they?
ah, found one http://www.itconsult.co.uk/stamper.htm
rolando
k-man: than I don't know
*then
cluck
iirc the my country's public post office has a paid service that cryptographically signs and timestamps e-mail but i think they only accept bulk contracts, also, i dunno of any free service that does the same

jyaan
It seems that the latest version of Emacs automatically adds a semicolon in C mode
I don't like this. How can I disable it?
I mean, it adds a newlien every time I insert a semicolon
rgr
really? never saw that.
jyaan
Mine is doing it for some reason
Hm
I'm using Emacs-Snapshot from Ubuntu PPA
rgr
let me check my c settings
jyaan
I'll try emacs -q to make sure
rolando
jyaan: must be using electric-colon?
jyaan
Yea I think so
rgr
there s an electric-colon command?
jyaan
don't see one
rolando
; is calling c-electric-semi&comma
jyaan
Yea using -q stops it
Ok I'll test it
bob2
section 30.11.2 of the manual
jyaan
Weird though
I don't have that in my C mods
bob2
there's a key binding to turn it on
perhaps you accidentally hit it
jyaan
Yea I think so
rolando
I have a (setq c-auto-newline 1) on my .emacs
jyaan
I reloaded and it's goen
rolando
C-c C-a --> c-toogle-auto-newline?
bob2
and C-c C-l
rolando
seems to work
jyaan
Yea
bob2
er, nevermind, that's something else
jyaan
I typed C-c C-a
And C-c C-a
Er
C-c a
I was looknig for align-current that i set up
K well it's fixed
Thx
kanru
anyone knows why transient-mark-mode dosen't work in rxvt-unicode?
fledermaus
,repro
fsbot
tell us EXACTLY 1) what you typed; 2) what you saw; and 3) what you expected to see.
kanru
when I active the mark, i.e. ^@, I can't see the transient-mark in rxvt-unicode terminal
hmm.. I see, the mark did not actived
dragonhorse
is there a way to make it so that when you pop the mark, and do stuff in the new location, and pop it again, it goes to where you were when you first popped it?
if you push before you pop, it won't go...
rgr

god dang it

Gosh darn.

e1f
how long did the hundred days war last?
skorpan
"The soldiers stayed for 90 days."
e1f
hm... true
but the hundred days war is the number of days from the return of napoleon until the restoration of the throne, which lasted 111 days
it's odd that abba doesn't mention this in their song 'waterloo'
they could have made it educational
skorpan
they also could have killed themselves
e1f
i don't think they had as powerful drugs back then as there are today
yates
is there a command to "unjustify" text? that is, to remove all the linefeeds from a paragraph so that the entire paragraph is on one line?
Sketch
yates: M-x fill-paragraph
fledermaus
huh?
yates
yeah, huh?
the reason why i want to do this is that there are many on-line forums that do their own filling, but instead of using some brain-dead text entry box i like to write the text in emacs first, then paste it in
fledermaus
yates: you could roll your own with forward-paragraph/narrow-to-region/replace-regexp
yates
i guess it would be more of an "unfill" function
e1f
,unfill
fsbot
I heard unfill is see http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/UnfillParagraph
yates
oh!
goodie!
quidnunc
yates: Or use longlines-mode
e1f
come on, emacs has been around for a billion years
in '2001', emacs was the monolith!
yates
yeah, and HAL was built in lisp using it!
"Dave..."
I just re-watched Disney's "The Black Hole" for the first time since it came out (1979?) - what an awful movie that was
Slava_work
Awww
e1f
they're going to remake it
Slava_work
I was hoping it was still fresh the second time around
yates
really?
e1f
in terms of scientific accuracy, it was the worst
