technomancy: tethering rumored for Android 2.2!
technomancy
offby1: why do you keep looking for excuses not to root? =)

technomancy
I haven't seen a single issue with CM so far. everything is better.
it's all rainbows and unicorn marshmallows over here.
Zan-Xhipe
now emacs is only giving me a window big enough to display the exit, maximise, minimise buttons and the file, options and edit part of the menu bar
technomancy
offby1: see the last panel of http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2007/9/7/
dim
CM?
         

technomancy
dim: cyanogenmod
dim: the alternate OS for android
dim
ah. never heard about all that.
technomancy
dim: currently android doesn't tether out of the box because (presumably) Google doesn't want to scare the carriers away.
though that might change in the next release
dim
tether == confine?
technomancy
CM adds that plus stuff they've been worried about for patent issues
dim: it means using your phone as a modem for your laptop
dim
ahah, ok
technomancy
dim: carriers in the US like to charge extra for that
dim
yeah here too
madsj
doug: instead of having two functions to search for TODO, it'd be nice with only one; besides, it doesn't seem like isearch-backward can be used non-interactively
shabble
madsj: (save-excursion (goto-char (point-min)) (search-forward "TODO") ...) ?
offby1
madsj: isearch is, by definition, interactive.
try C-r RET, then type your search term
leo2007
I want to include a diff snippet in a blog what's the tag for it something like <p></p> for paragraph?
shabble
pre maybe
otherwise you'll need to do <,> and \n translation
leo2007
that's painful
shabble
so use <pre>
but it won't line wrap, so make sure it fits or you'll have a horiz scrollbar
leo2007
shabble: yeah, pre is also used by org-mode
JordiGH
lol? http://www.linkedin.com/in/barackobama
parolang
Is he looking for a new job?
JordiGH
Doesn't seem like it.
parolang
Tea partiers can't wait until 2012 so they can vote out the dictator. Their logic is weird like that.
         

JordiGH
Bill Gates is also there, but I can't find Steve Jobs.
moljac024
JordiGH: where?
rryouumaa
is that their new name?
"teabagger" being a sex act
JordiGH
http://www.linkedin.com/in/billgates
rryouumaa
s/er/ing/
JordiGH
Strangely, I don't seem to be on a connection path to Bill Gates, but I'm only three degrees away from Barack Obama.
parolang
I said "tea partier" :)
I have some respect for people engaging in democracy.
rryouumaa
and i asked if that was their new name
JordiGH
I wonder if this makes me a librul.
parolang
rryouumaa: That's their old name.
rryouumaa
then what is their new name?
offby1
lurbir
JordiGH
Dammit, I seem to be further than six degrees away from Kevin Bacon. :-(
parolang
rryouumaa: no idea
offby1
lurbil
parolang
I don't keep with the latest insanity on dailykos.
JordiGH
Huh, why does Hillary Clinton say she's a candidate for presidency?
parolang
JordiGH: linkedin would have been useful during the mccarthy era :)
JordiGH
I'm also three degrees away from Sarah Palin D:
parolang
heh
You must have some impressive connections.
rryouumaa
can you draw networks for arbitrary users?
JordiGH
rryouumaa: It just tells you on the side what the network might look like.
But it's so dumb, anything further away than two degrees is useless.
parolang
How many degrees is Sean Hannity from Sarah Palin?
e1f
zero degrees. they are the same person
JordiGH
What's a rhetorical subject?
technomancy
just like Jon Gruber and Steve Jobs
JordiGH
I've just been accused of discussing a rhetorical subject, which my accuser hates.
I guess it just means I blah blah blah about stuff my accuser doesn't like hearing?
pjb`
A subject without substance, that only purpose is to make nice sentences.
JordiGH
All I was doing was saying why I and others think that Wolfram is crazy. :-(
pjb`: Okay, so I am being dismissed as "blah blah blah".
technomancy
I've never heard it used that way. Perhaps he intended to say you were answering a rhetorical question?
JordiGH
technomancy: No, he's trying to express being pissed off with me in some way.
He says he hates "rhetorical subjects".
pjb`
Well, once could indeed argue that's rhetorical: you're not, I assume, a psychiatrist, and you have no authority to ask his internment.
JordiGH
Russian speaker, so I'm guessing it's a Russian use of "rhetoric".
pjb`
There's indeed no point in discussing the crazyness of people.
quidnunc
How does Russian rhetoric differ from non-Russian rhetoric
?
JordiGH
(Action) needs to find a way to disagree with people without pissing them off.
pjb`: Well, I didn't quite suggest that he needed to be committed to a mental hospital.
pjb`
:-)
jlf`
JordiGH: how many 1st degrees do you have leading to barry?
rryouumaa
in russia sometimes people claim that political enemies are crazy
JordiGH
Well, they did in Soviet times.
rryouumaa
still do
JordiGH
Stalinist times, even.
Really? Old habits die hard.
pjb`
Well, I hear in USA psychiatrists are quite powerful too, and you'd better avoid being put in an asylum.
But it's the same in France too.
rryouumaa
same in uk
they are pushing for more power in the usa: only one doctor has to decide instead of 2
furthermore, they are defining undiagnosed diseases as (i.e. therefore) mental illnesses in the newest draft of the dsm 5
so a new aids comes out and you catch it, guess what? you can be thrown into a mental hospital.
jlf`
cite?
fsbot
hmm, cite is at http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?cite
rryouumaa
i think it's dsm5.org, but let me check
you just have to have a disease that is serious, undiagnosed, and be worried about it (which is quite natural), iirc. maybe a few other easy-to-fulfill criteria. hang on.
e1f
they're assuming the two doctors will check with the internet for a third opinion
rryouumaa
here you go. http://www.dsm5.org/ProposedRevisions/Pages/proposedrevision.aspx?rid=368 .
shabble
there'll be a whole new section on answers.yahoo.com for it!
rryouumaa
currently it is 2 doctors (or was recently). they succeeded in, or are pushing for, only 1.
jlf`
where's the "thrown into a mental hospital" part?
rryouumaa
jlf`: that is a separate political action on their part. i have described 2 different things. shall i search for the first?
jlf`
i don't see much new in your previous link, and i don't see anything there about involuntary commitment
rryouumaa
again, 2 separate issues
deadly when combined, but 2 separate issues
afk, will be back
stoove
can i get type-break to be more aggressive about reminding me to take breaks?
shabble
aggressive?
e1f
you want the keyboard to blow-up?
jlindsay
Ejection seat integration
stoove
like for example workrave
shabble
find some pictures of people having carpal tunnel surgery and stick them on a slideshow?
bob2
have it run xscreensaver-command -lock
shabble
,g workrave
fsbot
[google] http://www.workrave.org/download/
http://workrave.sourceforge.net/
stoove
it shows a little timer that counts down to the next break and when it's time for a break a little dialog pops up and jumps around on your screen
shabble
you could probably hack up a countdown timer in the modeline
not sure about the jumping part
stoove
heh
so what type-break *can* do is show me a reminder in the status line?
no timer or popup?
i would use workrave, but it doesn't work so good with xmonad...
sshelagh
stoove: didn't ggole suggest using xscreensaver-command ?
stoove
yeah, but xscreensaver-command just locks my desktop
if i'm just finishing up something before the break it locks
then i would have to unlock to finish and then take the typing break
so not quite what i wanted
but i will try it with xscreensaver-command
sshelagh
you could prolly use a y-or-no-p to say whether you wanted to delay it
stoove
i see
shabble
stoove: type-break-mode-line-message-mode claims to display 'warnings' in the modeline
rryouumaa
back
type-break works well and is why i was afk
stoove
rryouumaa: how do you have it set up?
rryouumaa
stoove: (setf type-break-file-name nil)
(setf type-break-demo-functions '(type-break-demo-boring))
(type-break-mode 1)
(setf type-break-interval (* 60 8))
i will prob change numbers though
(setf type-break-good-rest-interval (* 60 15))
ggole
What? I've never heard of xscreensaver-command o_O
(Action) wonders if he has MPD
stoove
err xscreensaver-demo
ggole
I think you have me confused with somebody else. Anyway, no big deal.
rryouumaa
how do you truncate the buffer name in the modeline for w3m buffers?
yonkeltron
rryouumaa: what version of emacs?
rryouumaa: try M-x butterfly
rryouumaa
22
yonkeltron
oh
i dunno if that has butterfly.
rryouumaa
no, it doesn't, and i don't see the relevance, but i appreciate the effort :)
yonkeltron
rryouumaa: have you tried logarithms?
rryouumaa
are you high?
yonkeltron
rryouumaa: clearly not an xkcd fan.
rryouumaa: hang on, let me look your question up
rryouumaa
i did read the butterfly one
yonkeltron
not logarithms though?
rryouumaa: you want it to automatically truncate buffer names?
or just on-demand?
because you can write a function to rename-buffer or something
rryouumaa
i suppose
yonkeltron
rryouumaa: especially if you know how you want to truncate the names, right?
keep them unique or something
like collapsing between dots or slashes or something
rryouumaa
yeah, just thought there would be a built-in way
yonkeltron
rryouumaa: is there a w3m command?
rryouumaa: and, if you get it working well, submit a patch perhaps!
parolang
Do M-x butterfly and answer "no" and it will open that page of xkcd with the comic.
yonkeltron
niiiiiice
rryouumaa
w3m-buffer-name-add-title
parolang
Yeah...just figured that out just now :) I always answered "yes" before.
yonkeltron
rryouumaa: cool! it exists?
rryouumaa: that's outstanding. does it do what you want?
rryouumaa: want/need that is...
rryouumaa
only if you defadvice around it
(but the problem is that then there is no place with the title. the status line has the url, but not the title.)
jordanb
Why do 90% of women want to study psycology?
It's like the academic version of real estate.
rryouumaa
is that true at the graduate level?
yonkeltron
interesting
jordanb
Psycology is a gruaduate program, innit?
rryouumaa
it's also an undergraduate one
yonkeltron
i know plenty of psych-major undergrads
jordanb
I'm not saying they're all doing it. I mean if you ask them, they say they'd like to get a phd in psychology.
rryouumaa
experimental or clinical?
big difference
jordanb
I doubt they have that part worked out.
yonkeltron
interesting
rryouumaa
if you find out the answer, please add it to the faq
jordanb
There's a faq for women?
yonkeltron
whoa
brilliant
jordanb
Russian women seeking marriage - FAQ <-- Haha
rbarraud
erm, how is that related to emacs? M-x find-russian-bride?
woodworks
dang, we can find russian brides through emacs!!!!?
are they the pretty ones, or the ones smelling of old potatoes and vodka?
cluck
woodworks: you do realize those two groups can and often do intersect, right?
