hm
parolang
TeXnomancy: I'll check it out.
jlf
JordiGH: since you don't want a musical reference, what about a stylized portrait of the eponymous professor?
parolang
BTW, I'm enjoying my wobbly windows, and I'm not apologizing :)
JordiGH
jlf: That could work. We'd have to get permission from Levenspiel
He does look like a crazy scientist.
Sketch
with crazy nerd hair?
JordiGH

That's him.
         

e1f
interesting comparison of bp as ahab drilling for oil in the gulf
originally from a columnist on al-jazeera of all places
JordiGH
e1f has no interest in Octave logos. :-(
His logo days are over.
e1f
i can't be creative on demand
turbofail
I DEMAND THAT YOU BE CREATIVE ON DEMAND
ggole
Hmm
<menu> is bound to execute-extended-command
e1f
i need to talk with the lead developer before i can start designing the logo
ggole
With recursive minibuffers on, leaning on it is not a good idea
parolang
What other purpose is there to being the channel's token Apple guy if you don't want to draw logos?
JordiGH
e1f: jwe@octave.org
parolang
That's what Apple computers were designed for.
Sketch
her's my logo: PEN DOWN; FORWARD 10; RIGHT 90; FORWARD 10; RIGHT 90; FORARD 10; RIGHT 90; FORQRD 10; PEN UP
parolang
hahah
JordiGH
SYNTAX ERROR
parolang
That's a logo logo :)
Sketch
hehe
ggole
Sketch: your logo is a bit FORQRD up.
Sketch
i noticed that ;)
actually i didn't notice that one, i noticed the first one
e1f
is the developer interested in my making the logo?
JordiGH
e1f: Well, he seems lukewarm to the idea.
So far he's only said: http://octave.1599824.n4.nabble.com/Logos-proposal-tp2247213p2250639.html
jlf
wow, that's a whole lot of messages about a logo.
         

madpickle-
,yow
fsbot
Of course, you UNDERSTAND about the PLAIDS in the SPIN CYCLE --
JordiGH
Give us a break, we're kinda excited. Octave has had pretty bland branding for the past twenty years.
madpickle-
Logo eh
e1f
my first thought would be one column of an abacus counting the number 8
cvandusen
you need a social media douchebag
madpickle-
cvandusen: or maybe just the douche...
JordiGH
cvandusen: Is IRC social media? I could be that douchebag.
jlf
cvandusen: they prefer to be called evalgelists
er, evangelists
evilcellists
madpickle-
JordiGH, no matter the medium you will always be a douchebag to me.
turbofail
irc is antisocial media
JordiGH
madpickle-: <3
cvandusen
oops, don't want to hurt their feelings
madpickle-
JordiGH: <3
jlf
get a room
madpickle-
rudybot: should we get a room?
rudybot
madpickle-: <Anonymous> Last night, Helen and I were sitting in the living room, and I said to her, "I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug." She got up, unplugged the TV, and threw out my beer.

madpickle-
rudybot: is jlf a gremlin?
rudybot
madpickle-: There's a gremlin on the wing, I tell you!
cvandusen
rudybot: but is it jlf?
rudybot
cvandusen: jlf`: Well...I was born in 1982. My folks couldn't afford a current computer, so they bought me a used Apple IIe for $100 and that's what I learned to program on.
madpickle-
awww.
jlf
rudybot: you've got nothing on me! nothing!
rudybot
jlf: if you've got a recent emacs, org-mode is part of it, and so you already have an autoload for org-agenda.
madpickle-
growing up i had nothing to play with but myself.
cvandusen
I think I saw that on an after school special
I didn't even have myself. I was raised by Buddhists
JordiGH
e1f: I like the abacus idea.
jlf
buddists? luxury!
buddhists even
e1f
JordiGH: but does the developer
madpickle-
i had to invent my own religion as a kid.
cvandusen
e1f: I think everyone has asked that
JordiGH
e1f: He said he liked abstract logos.
jlf
let's make a mega-awesome online internet 'blog
JordiGH
Ultimately, the meaning of a logo matters very little, right? It just has to be an image that people associate with the software. The Windows logo doesn't look like windows at all anymore, and the IBM logo looks like fu*k all; it looks like IBM.
Sketch
Freedom math is the new freedom rock.
turbofail
the octave logo should be a tophat
JordiGH
Tophat++
turbofail
with flames on the sides
cvandusen
purple flames
JordiGH
turbofail: And bikini chicks on bikes.
damd
JordiGH: the windows logo *does* look like a window
JordiGH
With chainmail bikinis.
damd: Not anymore it doesn't.
damd
i think it does
Sketch
it looks more like a flag
damd
well, it looks more like a scandinavian/english flag than anything..
turbofail
the linux logo looks a bit like a unix-like kernel to me
jlf
cvandusen: i am intrigued by your link and i wish to subscribe to your newsletter^WRSS feed
legumbre
it's a flag
damd
the haskell logo is by far the best FUCK YEAH
JordiGH
,g haskell logo

damd
the worst logo of all time unfortunately is emacs's :(
legumbre
ohhh
cvandusen
jlf: you can write the check out now
JordiGH
damd: Which Emacs logo?
jlf
i propose a barter in which i will issue enthusiastic tweets about you
JordiGH
The script E over the blue orb?
damd
JordiGH: the gnu which is supposed to look like the text "emacs"
JordiGH
e1f: You gonna take that kind of trash talk?
damd
you know the one at the startup screen
JordiGH
damd: e1f thinks your mother's vagina smells nasty.

fsbot: i hope your meta-key breaks and your escape-key stops escaping
damd
it sucks really really bad
JordiGH
(Action) puts damd and e1f in the ring.
damd
we need more free software *designers*
cvandusen
hmm
jlf
damd: you are mistaken sir. good day!
JordiGH
LETS GET READY TO RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUUUUUMBLE!
damd
which one of you designed the logo?
madpickle-
i don't like rumbling. it makes my tummy hurt.
cvandusen
I could use the tweets
jlf

jlf
(Action) nudges fledermaus
JordiGH
(Action) still giggles like a schoolgirl whenever he sees tweet[0].
madpickle-
the past participle of "tweet" should be "twat"
jlf
whoa
damd
if the river was whiskey, i was a diving duck...
madpickle-
or "twatted"
e1f
i did the emacs splash logo, btw
madpickle-
(Action) high-fives e1f
cvandusen
"I twatted last night's party"
e1f
the gnu leaping over the word emacs
damd
e1f: it's horrible and you should be taken out back for even proposing it
fledermaus
language, timothy.
madpickle-
(Action) approves of the equestrian theme in the logo
e1f
well, gerd liked the original gnus logo
and he wanted to use it
and then there was a fight with rms on an alternative logo i did
damd
where can i get a hold of this "gerd" fellow...?
e1f
and the compromise was the current logo
gerd had taken over emacs development from rms
JordiGH
e1f: Was it in mud?
damd
i had some gnus-ish coffee cup with a pterodactyl on it, but i lost it :(
e1f
emacs 21 was his emacs
xah lee did a nice svg version of the splash which should replace my 8-bit crappy bitmap one
JordiGH
"His Emacs"?
e1f
rms wanted to make sure crappy-assed video cards displayed it
JordiGH
Haha.
You should have done it in ASCII.
e1f
i even had to do a dithered version for monochrome screens
JordiGH
80 columns by 40 lines.
e1f
the whole saga is documented on my website
damd
xah lee is a pretty cool guy
madpickle-
in glorious technicolor?
,yow
fsbot
I demand IMPUNITY!
JordiGH
damd: and doesn't afraid of anything.

(Action) eats
e1f
don't you have to wait until the butler announces it?
sepult
fu*k my w3m is broken now
e1f
dinner is served
sepult
it does even not show any message whatsover
just hangs

fledermaus
I don't have a butler.
or any other household staff.
unless you count the interesting pseudo colony of spiders.
and the occasional invading neighbourcat.
JordiGH
Let's discover an ant colony in the kitchen and decide to peacefully coexist.
e1f: What's the e in your name?
EUSEBIO

doesn't screen support horizontal splits these days?
oh. my screen dates from 2006.
TeXnomancy
jlf: tmux!
JordiGH
Doesn't everyone's?
I thought screen was abandoned.
fargiolas
hi, I must have entered some wrong key combo and now I'm in some kind of input mode where each time I press a letter it gets underlined and I can press some symbol to add accents and other stuff, how do I disable it?
legumbre
(Action) noticed tmux people are kind of pushy
JordiGH
fargiolas: C-\
fledermaus
C-\
madpickle-
it's an unfortunate keybind
JordiGH
fargiolas: It's actually handy if you need to write multilingual text in Emacs but you don't want to change keyboard layouts.
fargiolas
JordiGH: fledermaus: thanks :)
madpickle-
easy to mis-type and not know how to get out of.
jlf
TeXnomancy: does tmux support multi-attach? horizontal/vertical splits? emacs keybindings in scrollback? similar logging?
JordiGH
madpickle-: I think it should be one of those disabled-by-default keys.
TeXnomancy
jlf: yes, yes, yes, etc.
