Eraldo
how would I get the university schedules from an ics file into your setting?
and... to what extent are you using 'calendar-mode' in your setting
sav
greboides: you're from the future. today is not sunday; is it?
ooh, pardon :) it's a scheduled event. heh
Eraldo
greboides: to what degree is you setup compatible with calendar mode? so that I can still use things like ics import or so
cluck
fico picado cada vez que confundem português com espanhol :)
sav
picado is chateado or something?
picado sounds funny for brazilian portuguese.
cluck
sav: yes
greboides
picado isnt used on portuguese slang
Eraldo: its fully compatible
cluck
sav: "ligeiramente irritado", despeitado, ...
sav
I see
         

Eraldo
greboides: oh... that sounds great... alright... you got me :)
greboides
Eraldo: my pastes arent working
a minute
Eraldo
greboides: you can mail them to me, if that is okay with you
cluck
greboides: aqui no norte até é :)
Eraldo
gnus is always hungry for mails :)
greboides
Eraldo: http://openpaste.org/20423/inline/
cluck: :)
Eraldo
greboides: which keyword are you using for appointments? TODO sounds unsuitable for an event (for example)
greboides: and I guess you add appointments/events/birthdays/etc with remember templates... or are you using a different system for that?
greboides
Eraldo i just use appt-add
Eraldo
greboides: what is 'appt-add'?
greboides
for appointments, for the rest i use a org-entry with timestamp
,appt
fsbot
From memory, appt is [0] an appointment reminder mode
[1] at http://emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/AppointmentMode
cluck
Eraldo: the good thing about org is the flexibility, just define the keyword you want :)
greboides
indeed
Eraldo
cluck: that is very true... however, I'd like to avoid creating a new kwd if I find a nicer alternative that works without one.
that is why I tend to ask how other people handle such things before starting ...but most of it is a work in progress anyway... I know :)
greboides: I hope I will understand most of it, it seems like you have many comments, that is good ^^
cluck
getting external input is always a good thing just don't let it get in the way of getting things done
Eraldo
(Action) is reading greboides file.
cluck: balance is key :) .oO( why does it sound so easy )
jordanb
Let's have an irrational love of git.
Eraldo
greboides: would it also be possible to get a glimps at your actual data (to see the structure) ...that is birthday/appt/etc
sylvain
hi all!
greboides
Eraldo: sure, i will make one small sample here
         

Eraldo
greboides: thank you very much =]

rudybot
We should.
sylvain
is there a function like null but testing for truth
bojohan
identity
sylvain
identity is just returning the same object, isn't it?!
bojohan
yes
sylvain
i wondered if the exp (eq t x) had an alias
like (null x) === (eq nil x)
i find (eq t x) a bit ugly in my code ;)
bojohan
you said "testing for truth", and all non-nil values are true
there's no synonym for "eq t"
bitti
maybe you should reconsider if you really nead a literal t
cluck
f u cn rd ths u hv a ftr n asm
greboides
Eraldo: its all split among many files but if it was one file it would be something like this: http://openpaste.org/20424/inline/
sylvain
bojohan: ok that's all i wanted to know!
bitti
i think even (t? x) (as custom defun) ist not a big improvement over (eq t x)? no? just x seems an improvement
bojohan
my .emacs is 2600+ lines and uses (eq t x) once

cluck
rudybot: have you written a new microkernel for the hurd already???
fsbot
mu!
rudybot
cluck: eh? Try "rudybot: help".
bitti
seems fsbot is a Zen master
cluck
rudybot should have some of those random, vague answers fsbot uses to confuse newcomers
fsbot: can i have a beer??
fsbot
I'm telling you, you don't want to know.
cluck
see :D
Eraldo
greboides: don't forget to send me the links to the samples
greboides: oh... I messed that line
greboides: all those files need to be part of the agenda, right?
quotemstr
fsbot: Can entropy be reversed?
fsbot
[Too many DB matches] So this is what it feels like to be potato salad
quotemstr
fsbot: You are a terrible univac.
fsbot
err..you is already something else.. Use 'is also'..
Currently: INNOCENT! .. + other entries
cluck
quotemstr: i was left wandering the other day we revisited your thought experiment
quotemstr
Man, this thing keeps elaborating itself. Soon enough, we'll have an RPG.
cluck: The Carboniferous scenario?
cluck
quotemstr: namely what would be the fastest and easiest way to replicate "technology" in such a scenario
particularly in an environment like the one we'd expect in the carboniferous
yes
shabble
whatwhat?
jabot
bzr pull has already downloaded 180 Mb
checkout was 1. february
is that normal?
shabble
cluck: M-x time-travel?
quotemstr
cluck: I imagine all the biomes we know today would be present, perhaps in different proportions. There would be fewer fossil fuel deposits because the planet would be younger, but you should still be able to find some.
cluck
i suspect going the "crazy scientist" route and using genetic manipulation to produce biotechnology would be a possibility
quotemstr
cluck: We can barely do that now.
cluck
given the available genetic variability and the low tech needs of selective breeding, with a bit of luck we'd get hot cylons in no time
quotemstr: hey, you were the one saying "battlestar gallactica level civilization" i was just wondering on the possible outcomes given the parameters i was provided
:D
quotemstr
cluck: Yes, let us structure our civilization toward the development more hot Cylons. :-)
offby1
jabot: it's certainly normal for bzr to suck
to download too much and take too long
e1f
google is supporting theora on mobile systems
http://www.osnews.com/story/23135/Google_Puts_Weight_Behind_Theora_on_Mobile
quotemstr
cluck: You know, that'd make an awesome 4X strategy game.
cluck: Sort-of a cross between Civilization and Alpha Centauri.
e1f
aren't you guys talking about von neumann machines
cluck
e1f: well, technically i guess cylons (even the pretty ones) fit the concept of von neumann machines
hylje
a 4x-mode?
i would use it
quotemstr
Let's rewrite FreeCiv in elisp.
cluck
quotemstr: we should market as "nethack for the space age emacser"
hylje
graphical or spreadsheetish?
legumbre
apparently Civ V will be scripted in Lua
hylje
and not elisp
what a shame
legumbre
hylje: someday
jordanb

cluck
quotemstr: jokes aside, it could be interesting to setup a wiki for things like these, sort of as a meeting point or goto reference for the practical side of technology
quotemstr
Civilization in 32,763 easy steps. :-)
hylje
civilization in 400 turns
quotemstr
Heh.
Bbl.
Off to Pennsylvania.
cluck
roll d20 for technology!
hylje
no, meticulously optimize your numbers for one or two beakers of tech that turn ;-)

I see that it's possible to display Emacs remotely by exporting the frame itself. But is it possible to forward the TCP socket itself so that a trusted remote user wishing to access the other session can run their own (compatible) version of Emacs and pretend that the local server is the remote one?
cluck
seriously, imagine a site like say instructibles only one that doesn't suck :)
johnsu01
very confused by what's happening here since I don't usually do javascript, does javascript mode show spaces with _ or something?
offby1
gosh, I don't think so
Steve Yegge's mode?
jordanb
johnsu01: It sure doesn't.
johnsu01
jordanb: I have no idea what's going on then -- C-x = showsa a _ at point, but a search for _ does not find them.
and looking at the same file in nano does not show any _
jordanb
nano
Is there some show-whitespace minor mode?
fsbot: whitespace?
fsbot
whitespace is [0] http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ShowWhiteSpace
[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitespace_programming_language,
[2] http://compsoc.dur.ac.uk/whitespace/,
[3] at http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WhiteSpace, ..[Type ,more]
johnsu01
nothing in the modeline about it, only says javascript-mode
I gave up on the script anyway
jordanb
I'm pretty sure unicode has some visible whitespace character, that they should use.
Are you running gnus? It's probably doing something to ruin the rest of your emacs session.
johnsu01
ah yes, that's probably it
offby1
:)
have you even _thought_ about gnus in the last day or two? That's enough
jordanb
I hate apple but I sure do hope they kill adobe.
This is like the eastern front of WWII: Stalin versus Hitler.
sav
never mind, 2012 is near.
jordanb
Adobe programmers are as bad as programmers who use Adobe products. ;)
blackthorne
hi, how do I know what is the key bindings for copy-paste ?
jordanb
Surely that's a question only you can answer.
blackthorne
I am following some tutorials and yet on my Emacs copy-paste isn't working, I assume the binding is different
can't I consult it?
jordanb
What does C-h k C-w say?
It should say 'kill-region'.
blackthorne
yes
jordanb
So then that's your cut key.
and C-h k C-y should be yank.
blackthorne
yes, but I want copy, not cut
jordanb
So what does C-h k M-y say?
Where M is <alt>
blackthorne
yank-pop
jordanb
Er, M-w, not M-y
blackthorne
on the tut I was reading they talk about [ESC] W for copy
jordanb
That's for apple users with busted Meta keys.
blackthorne
kill-ring-save
jordanb
People with real computers can use alt for meta.
That's correct too.
So you're probably just doing it wrong.
blackthorne
jordanb: I use a Mac ;)
offby1
blackthorne: cut is M-w
oops, I meant "copy"
jordanb
Well, there's your problem then.
blackthorne
Meta key is Apple Command key
on Aquamacs it's Alt
offby1
blackthorne: I think there's some mode or other that binds copy to %C etc.
blackthorne
offby1: how did u do that fancy symbol before C ?
offby1
C-x 8 RET FOUR SPOKED SOMETHING OR OTHER RET
jordanb
Generally Apple computers are for watching movies and di*king around with Adobe products. Using serious software like Emacs on them is going to be difficult.
offby1
heh
I hear they're good for web browsing too
blackthorne
they are not good on having problems
so M-w and C-y, let me try
worked, thanks
one problem remains
marking a region should be somehow highlighted
I had that on the conf of my old univ..
jordanb
M-x transient-mark-mode
blackthorne
awesome!
should I put that on the emacs conf file ?
jordanb
sure
(transient-mark-mode)
