johnw
now I just need a memory and CPU efficient tracker
running BT on my NAS kills it
cluck
utorrent, maybe
rtorrent, i mean
i think the other is dead :D
johnw
well, it has to run on my Sparc version of Debian 3
if someone else has a tracker...
cluck
rtorrent should be on apt
fledermaus
quotemstr: you gotta love the bit where they justify shooting up the kids of the people trying to help the injured
ams
fledermaus: they are helping terrorists...
johnw
I get unreasonably excited about typography.
quotemstr
ams: You don't shoot people taking the wounded off the field.
ams: That particular code of conduct is centuries old.
ams
quotemstr: sure you do, if they are terrorists
quotemstr: but they are terrorists!!!
         

quotemstr
Never mind. You're just trolling.
I can tell because you're typing.
ams
quotemstr: <3
johnw
would everyone stop telling ams that he's trolling about everything he types?? I troll all the time too
ams
quotemstr: sorry, but that is the normal USG rethoric... or was :)
johnw
Watch: In what way can Linux be considered a better user experience than OS X?
fledermaus
johnw: focus follows mouse
ams
johnw: far to easy...
bremner
sorry to interrupt the trolling, but I would like a function to give me the first k elements of a list
johnw
fledermaus: the fish always bites
cluck
quotemstr: sure you do, a healed fighter is a not-dead-yet fighter, snipe those evil medics! (the things i learned with FPS games...)
ams
bremner: nthcdr
johnw
bremner: there isn't one
bremner: you have to create a new list
bremner
brain explodes :)
ams
or uhm nth
quotemstr
cluck: In the real world, the wounded cause more problems for the opposing force than the dead.
fledermaus
johnw: you're nowhere near the level of crass obnoxiousness that ams displays
ams
johnw: hm? nth? nthcdr?
johnw
fledermaus: i'm just more subtle about it
fledermaus
and it would sadden me to see you try
ManateeLazyCat
bremner: gtk2hs support from Gtk+ 2.8 to Gtk+ 2.18.3 fully, look http://www.gtk.org/language-bindings.html
         

johnw
ams: nthcdr returns the remainder of a list
ams
fledermaus: you sure beat me.
johnw
he wanted a list of the first 5 elements, say
bremner
yeah
legumbre
subseq hehe
ams
so nth?
johnw
nth returns the 5th element alone
ams
(nth 5 '(1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 90))
,(nth 5 '(1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 90))
fsbot
6 ..(integer)
ams
oh right
doh
sorry
johnw
subseq is a compiled CL function
ManateeLazyCat
Just C++, Valv, JavaScript, Haskell support fully. Sweet.
johnw
meaning: if you want to submit your mode for inclusion in Emacs, it can't use subseq
ams
can one download all of wikileaks documents?
fledermaus
johnw: you aren't, as far as I know, resorting to personal insults and crude language on a regular basis
johnw
ams: httrack?
ams
johnw: well, you can, you just need to use eval-when-ompile or something, no?
bremner
johnw: yeah, its a patch for org-mode.
ams
fledermaus: you mean like yourself?
johnw
ams: subseq is a runtime dependency, even for byte-compiled code
bremner
,df butlast
fsbot
butlast is a compiled Lisp function in `subr.el'.
(butlast LIST &optional N)
Return a copy of LIST with the last N elements removed.
johnw
ams: eval-when-compile only makes cl.el *macros* OK to use
ams
johnw: ah, right'o
johnw
(Action) hugs his rude friend ams
bremner
(Action) refuses to compute the length of a list and call butlast ;)
sachac
(Action) laughs.
ams
(Action) moves his hand up johnw's leg...
sachac
butlast - never would've thought of that. I definitely have to read subr.el sometime.
johnw
ams is like pickled garlic. Not something you eat much of in shared company, but still tasty
ams
ahh... that is adorabe
,ams is also like pickled garlic. Not something you eat much of in shared company, but still tasty
fsbot
Added entry to the term "ams"
johnw
,,ams
fsbot
From memory, ams is [0] a digital cookie distributor.
[1] a user of OS/2 Warp and collector of ghosts,
[2] god,
[3] always right,
[4] like pickled garlic. Not something you eat much of in shared company, but still tasty
johnw
you really still use OS/2?
ams
johnw: only when collecting ghosts
johnw
i don't even have an OS/2 VM
and I've got a crap-ton of obscure VMs
cluck
johnw: why not? afaik the "no cl" stuff is gone, ffs they got cedet in!!! :O
ams
johnw: i really have no idea where that quote comes from..
johnw: mattl used to mutter it a few times
johnw
honestly, I'd completely forgotten that OS/2 once existed
cluck: really????
fsbot
Highly likely.
johnw
I remember when OS/2 was considered the OS de jour for server environments
ams
hm?
johnw
as in, stable and fast
ams
i can't find any use of 'cl in cedet...
cluck
i love it when people respond to humor with humor, even when they completely missed it in the first place :)
johnw
you know, in a few years I'm actually gonna be an old guy on this channel, that is scary
ams
USG wanted to close down wikileaks..
sachac
johnw: Newsflash! You are. ;)
ams
johnw: arent you already/
johnw
ams: SHHHH

johnw
yeah, but I'm not quite in my 40s YET. I started on #emacs when I was still in my 20s.
ams
worst part is that i've been on this damned network since it was on efnet as a small channel...
johnw
yeah, me too
i think I joined EFnet#emacs in '98 or so
ams
johnw: remeber #natter?
johnw
on
ams
oh, i wasn't in #emacs...
johnw
no
ams
:)
#natter, #linpeople...
johnw
back then our issue wasn't ams, but toby being too dictatorial
i wonder why he never comes here anymore
and I wonder if he still owns the emacs.org domain
we used to see Luke Gorrie a lot too
ams
23:23 *** 311 toby ~toby opendarwin/developer/toby * Toby Peterson
?
:)
johnw
no, another toby
ams
god..
johnw
Knudsen
ams
this is funny
wikileaks.org clais that leakers ... of former dod douments are usg employees
...
this clai is highly suspect, since wikileaks claims that the anonomoity of these leakers ... is one of its primary goals
(para-type-phrased cause i can't yank text from the document)
johnw
ugh, I have to do my taxes this week
sometimes, procrastination is not the friend it once was
ams
thanks for httrack...
but isn't like like wget?
johnw
yeah, on steroids
i find it does a more complete job
the results are more consistent
(in my experience)
ams
i see
was thinking that it ight be a good idea of a activley updated bittorrent of wikileaks
johnw
what is wikileaks?
cluck
i sometimes use wget for mirroring stuff for offline viewing, works ok
johnw
wget is acceptable
i forget which site it was that forced me to look for an alternative
ams
johnw: wikileaks is a whistleblower site..
johnw
i had a friend who was a whistleblower
i always admired extra him after that
ams
Three classified U.S. profiles of key Icelandic figures. (1) Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir; (2) the then Icelandic Ambassador to the U.S., Albert Jonsson; (3) Minister of Foreign Affairs and External Trade, Ossur Skarphedinsson. The profiles form briefing documents for U.S. officials visiting Iceland. While the documents are relatively lowly classified and careful to be diplomatic, the tone and certain facts
are notable; for instance, speaking on the (then) Icelandic Ambassador to the U.S: "he protested privately when explanations of alleged use of Icelandic airspace by CIA-operated planes were three weeks late in arriving and, in his view, inadequate, but worked with US diplomats to downplay the issue publicly.". Similarly, views about the figures in relation to NATO and other U.S. issues are explored.
gah, didn't realise that would be that much...
would be nice to have journalists write stuff about stuff published in wikileaks
upward
ams: which journalists do you speak of ?
ams
upward: the dead paper ones
and the talking head ones in tv
upward
ams: haven't seen an article from a journalist on dead paper in years
ams
upward: i saw one yesterday...
upward
ams: which country are you from ?
ams
upward: it was about the secret plans of princess victoria for a quiet wedding
upward: does that really matter?
johnw
well, if he is a troll, that narrows things to Middle Earth
upward
ams: yes I've been looking for a country to move to, and knowing that there are still joura lists somewhere would be a huge influence
ams
johnw: johnw just called me a troll!! lets kick him!!!
johnw
lol
jlf
upward: talkingpointsmemo is pretty great imo
johnw
i meant that you guard bridges
ams
johnw: johnw just called me names!!!!
erm
johnw
and you can only be killed with acid and fire, which is kind of cool
ams
johnw: bat blood.. but don't tell fledermaus that, he might get ideas
johnw
well, since fledermaus does mean bat, I see secret connections here
ams
upward: what i meant was that it doesn't atter where i am from, but where i am...
upward
ams: sorry, I thought it was the proper form in english, I meant the latter
johnw
if I had a battery for my computer that ran on urine, the timing would be perfect
shabble
aaaaaargh. I need a browser that supports some kind of s/ipad//g
upward
ams: my bad english fooling me
johnw
i seem to need to go the bathroom right when my battery is close to dying
ams
upward: your english is just dandy, i know some native speakers who don't know english grammer...
upward: i'm in sweden
johnw
Me knows grammer!
shabble
I does grammar the goodest
ams
Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo!
cluck
shabble: userscripts!
johnw
ams: I just learned about that recently, how cool
shabble
cluck: good idea. Although it means fighting with some javascript
ams
johnw: isn't it!
johnw
Wikipedia is awesom

last night I learned a whole bunch about brass I never knew
did you know that brass doorknobs naturally disinfect themselves within 8 hours?
ams
oh?
cluck
shabble: simple problem to solve, just get yourself a lisp repl written in js
e1f
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Weq_sHxghcg
great ad
cluck
(Action) giggles
ams
johnw: oh, why? does it apply to all brass instruments?
johnw
yeah, it applies to copper and most copper alloys
it's an effect caused by reactivity in the metal with elements in the microbes
shabble
sintered brass/bronze is pretty cool
johnw
ams: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oligodynamic_effect
shabble
I always wondered how the 'self lubricating' bearings worked.
ams
johnw: so my brass tin whistles are sterile if i leave 'em out for 8 hours?
johnw
it also happens for silver, so silverware is naturally sterile
