see you all next year
nothingHappens
and if I try in -q, no matter how long I go without seeing it, doesn't mean it will never happen :P
e1f
if it doesn't happen with -q it means it's something in your .emacs file that is causing the problem
nothingHappens
i have a lot of init stuff that comes in
but none of it, to my knowledge, is relevant to scrolling or line wrap
e1f
from your description it looks like it's a bug in the emacs display engine
soopos
How can you copy lines from one point to another?

e1f
otherwise it would always happen given a particul file
zenspider
oh crap. I think it is a lot easier than that with erc... erc-input-line-position -1 would do everything I think I want

soopos: please do the built-in tutorial in the help menu
it will help a lot

Piratero
Hahah. I've reached a new level of stupidity.
I just ran my own program, saw an error message. Wondered why I was getting the error. So I decided to google for it.
It was an error my program generates.
Well, error message.
quotemstr
I can do better.
When I was really tired one night, I tried to grab a cup of coffee by clicking and dragging on it.

Piratero: if you commented your code and published it on the web you would have found your answer

benny
you mean star wars?
quotemstr
No, that's a different computer scene.
benny
I can't remember either, I just like to talk about the other one whenever someone brings up Wars or Trek
I'm fun at geek parties
quotemstr
It's a wonder you survived to adulthood.
e1f
there was one in star wars?

how do I programatically escape a regex ?
err, escape a string to use in a regex ?

timcharper: ,,df regexp-quote
fsbot
regexp-quote is a built-in function in `C source code'.
(regexp-quote STRING)
Return a regexp string which matches exactly STRING and nothing else.
timcharper
e1f: I know that :) I am writing an elisp function to check if a string begins with text
benny: awesome, thanks !

Really a cliché? ;-) There are few Vivien in France
France is in the same zone as Germany
rgr
Hamburg, Germany here. It's like the bloody Blitz. Dangerous as hell out there.

vivien_: to an American mind, France is full of people named things like Vivien.

Q: a router that does WPA would it be able to do WPA2 after SW upgrade or is it generally HW that does it?
quotemstr
rgr: Hardware, AIUI.
benny
I'm not even an american, but I play one on irc
rgr
rats. Much as I have nothing to hide other than serial porn visits, I hate having only WPA.
quotemstr
vivien_: That's okay. I'm sure to the French, an American is someone who, to celebrate the new year, begins by crashing his Ford pickup into something, then takes a swig out of his can of Budweiser, shoots his shotgun into the air, and shouts "Happy New Year Y'all!" before kissing his sister.
rgr
benny: with a name like benny I thought you were playing a mentally handicapped speical person. "Benny" in England has strong links with such.
quotemstr
vivien_: See, they only do that in Texas. :-)

rgr
anyone using IDO - do you have file history recall working with it?
vivien_
I thought Americans were too fat to raise their heavy arm to shoot into the air
:-P
rgr
Thats why they have Mexicans.
quotemstr
vivien_: You can buy an arm-raiser at Walmart.
vivien_
I'd rather see them at home in family, as I think they value family a lot, right?
quotemstr
vivien_: That's why we love divorce.
vivien_
quotemstr: Oh yeah! I understand. And Walmart is even opened for the occasion!
You dream of divorce, but can you afford it?!
benny
quotemstr: don't make jokes about that
quotemstr
vivien_: In all seriousness, malls here have special all-night events for Black Friday. They even distribute free coffee to shoppers standing in line waiting for the sales to begin.
benny
you can buy stuff like that for fat people
quotemstr
There is something very wrong with that.
vivien_: Don't the French have laws permitting sales only at certain times of the year?
benny
toenail clippers on a 1m long contraption and such
vivien_
quotemstr: Yes, the sales are restricted to certain periods (twice a year). And the shops cannot be opened today, or at least they are all closed
quotemstr: a few shops might be authorized to open on Sundays before Christmas and new year. Sorts of compensations, I believe
quotemstr
Good.
vivien_
There is nothing like 7 eleven in France. Working Sunday is not permitted unless you have some special agreement (like for pharmacy)
quotemstr
Or the power company, I hope. :-)

But also in France, by contrst to their opening restrictions, you can murder your spouse on the suspicion they have been screwing your friend with no prosecution :-;
vivien_
rgr: Does it give you ideas?
rgr: planning a trip with your wife?
rgr
wtf, wrong emacs binary.
I think you have to be french to get away with it.

Ok, I have to leave. Enjoy the night ;-)

Now I feel loved.
Also, Colloquy still isn't using growl.
bremner
quotemstr: znc works pretty well with Colloquy, at least the mobile version
quotemstr
What is znc?
fsbot
ZNC is the best IRC proxy out there
quotemstr
Why would I want to proxy IRC unless I had to?
brb
timcharper
quotemstr: to conceal your location ?
quotemstr
You can use a normal TCP proxy for that though.
Why go all the way up to the application layer?
timcharper
me mataste
quotemstr
,t8 wtf en me mataste
fsbot
Doh! Wrong type argument: characterp, "wtf -> English: no matching translation services found.

rudybot
invalid translation language pair
timcharper
doh
you stumped me. I have no idea why you would go through the application layer
oh... here you go:
ZNC will remain connected to IRC even while you are offline. You can then reattach later and catch up with what happened while you were gone, and your nick (and operator status) will have been kept for you.
that's why
quotemstr
Oh: that's handy.
So it's a little like screen or nx for IRC.
timcharper
yeah
I knew a guy who would always run IRC in a terminal on a server
you probably would've appreciated ZNC
technomancy
(Action) started using dircproxy recently; it's super-handy
timcharper
^you^he
skorpan
timcharper: how does that work with rcirc?
timcharper
I have no idea.
I've never used it :-)
technomancy
rcirc can't authenticate on server level
so it doesn't work with dircproxy

iirc, you can also support your mistress with public funds if you're the president of france
quotemstr
e1f: Can? Pah. It's practically a requirement.
European heads of state are expected to be womanizers. Here, we
're still shocked, shocked to find that beautiful women want to have sex with powerful men.
There, they just ogle Carla Bruni.
