quotemstr
Yep.
Also, does Comcast still play games with traffic shaping?
And RSTing Bittorrent connections?
didi
quotemstr: I think we will never see anybody dropping it. Just more adoption.
quotemstr
Dropping what?
didi
`traffic shaping'.
quotemstr
Oh, that crap.

quotemstr: you're back!

TeXnomancy
offby1: my dircproxy is acting up, so sticking with an alt. nick
quotemstr: clear is quite slow. I had issues with connection stability for a period of time, then LOST ended, so I stopped bittorrenting, and now I haven't had a single problem.
(you decide if correlation indicates causation)
quotemstr
TeXnomancy: Do you use Clear as your primary ISP?
TeXnomancy
quotemstr: yeah
quotemstr
Eh, I'd prefer something wired. The problem is that both Comcast and Qwest seem to be *horrible*.
TeXnomancy
I had qwest at my old place; was pretty lousy.
my friends seem fairly happy with comcast.

you've seen the bactrace already
ups
TeXnomancy
quotemstr: clojure meeting is next thurs, if you're interested
offby1: or you
quotemstr
TeXnomancy: Where and when?
TeXnomancy
7 - 9pm at Zoka Coffee in the University district
http://seajure.technomancy.us <= fancy-schmancy site
offby1
TeXnomancy: I generally show up when I'm not falling-down tired.
which is about half the time.
TeXnomancy
heh; well I hope your energy level holds. =)
quotemstr
TeXnomancy: Nifty.
TeXnomancy
quotemstr: how's work?
if you're permitted to say
quotemstr
TeXnomancy: I start Monday.
TeXnomancy
oh right; still settling in
quotemstr
Yep. Off the furniture store later, actually. :-)
damd
i know that 7 is the same as "C-g" ... but how do i use "C-g" in emacs code?
(eq 7 key) ==> ?
?\C-g okay
birny
I don't know that term. Type ".index \" to see the terms in my database starting with '\'.
quotemstr
Darn, Zoka isn't within walking distance of Capitol Hill. Driving it is.
TeXnomancy
there's a bus that can take you to cap hill to the U district, but I'm not sure where it ends; it might be a hike.

[->] From memory, RectangleMark is [0] at http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?RectangleMark
[1] CUA-mode has an extensive set of commands for rectangular selection, together with rectangular mark highlight

The way `term' and `shell' handles `last command' differently is driving me crazy.

marioxcc
hi+
why do hl-line-mode only marks part of the last line of the buffer
non-last lines are marked buffer-width
last line is marked just text-width
how i may change this?
quotemstr
Hrm.
Comcast is giving us IPv6 addresses soon?
JordiGH
rainbow-mode is the best thing since sliced bread.
Let's push that sh*t to emacs main.
quotemstr
JordiGH: Nifty.
JordiGH
quotemstr: It makes editing CSS soooo much easier.
Shit, this stuff is starting to look good.

it highlights colors?
JordiGH
fsbot, rainbow-mode is http://julien.danjou.info/rainbow-mode.html
fsbot
created.
marioxcc
well, similar
damd
cool
marioxcc
is there any way to fix this?
JordiGH
damd
JordiGH: that's nice, but how does it handle colors that are too similar to the frame background?
i often find myself using #222 which is also my frame background
Wraithan
is there a command or way to put emacs in a mode like vimdiff mode, where you can push and pull changes between 2 files you are comparing?
JordiGH
damd: I guess it doesn't. But look how it does make sure the foreground contrasts with the background.
damd
that is nice
so you wrote it?
JordiGH
Hell no.
,rainbow-mode
fsbot
rainbow-mode -- http://julien.danjou.info/rainbow-mode.html
JordiGH
That dude.
damd
shouldn't be too hard i reckon
well, the difficult part is the parsing of course
hm, or maybe not
emacs customize supports rgb(x,y,z), doesn't it?
JordiGH
I think so.
so does rainbow-mode, iirc.
damd
yeah, i'm just saying i guess rainbow-mode uses that "built-in" parsing
JordiGH
damd
JordiGH: how can you copyright something 12 years prior to its existence?
JordiGH
Sure why not :D
damd
btw, don't you use firebug?
TeXnomancy
light-on-dark gui? interesting.
JordiGH
I've tried using it once.
It's way too complicated.
damd
dude no way, it's on-the-fly CSS editing
JordiGH
Error Console is my debugger. :P
damd
i would pay hard cash for it
TeXnomancy
mozrepl replaces firebug for me for all non-visual purposes.
JordiGH
I think it also has issues with my colour theme as noticed by TeXnomancy.
damd
TeXnomancy: right, but 90% of the times i use firebug for visual purposes
TeXnomancy
JordiGH: I think when I tried a light-on-dark scheme there were too many things that assumed the opposite
damd
figuring out the exact dimensions of elements, modifying CSS on the fly using the up and down keys, seeing which rules that take precedence over others, etc
JordiGH
Fine, fine, I'll install Firebug agian.
again
damd
:)
you won't regret it! remember to give me a shoutout when you accept the nobel prize for CSS
JordiGH
quotemstr
That's not a spec.
It's a mockup.
JordiGH
spec!
quotemstr
If you use that as a "spec", what you're actually doing is mentally extrapolating from the mockup to an entire specification, and chances are, you're doing it differently from the way the creator of the mockup did.
...which in the end means you'll have to go back and change things.
Working from a mockup is never a good idea.
JordiGH
quotemstr: http://tinyurl.com/36txu48
damd
quotemstr: i thought mockups were how the pros did it
at least "our" "pro" usually works from mockups
slocate
hi, anybody using 23.2 in snow leopard?
quotemstr
Let me clarify: it's not good to work from mockups *alone*.

,someone
fsbot
someone is, like, being irrational, and we need to come up with a 3 digit on each side fraction out of him.
quotemstr
slocate: I'm using the AppKit port.
damd
marioxcc: you mean "anyone"
marioxcc
,anyone
fsbot
Please do not ask if anyone uses, knows, is good with, can help you with <some program or library>. Instead, ask your real question and someone will answer if they can help.
marioxcc
damd: exactly
slocate
quotemstr which one is that?
marioxcc
slocate: ^
damd
i think "anyone" is frowned upon these days
quotemstr
slocate: It's an experimental patch series.
JordiGH
damd: Hah, funny, just realised that the someone/anyone was Spanish L1 interference.
damd
niqqa say what?
is that the same word in spanish?
JordiGH
damd: In Spanish both "anybody" and "somebody" map to the same word in most circumstances.
damd
i guess it's the same in swedish actually...
if you want to say "anyone" you kind of have to stress it kind of like "anyone at all"
marioxcc
JordiGH: (At the best of my english knowledge, which is bad anyway) anybody equals cualquiera and somebody alguien
please correctme if i'm woring
*wrong
slocate
quotemstr im using this one http://emacsformacosx.com/
quotemstr
slocate: Yeah. That's nice.
JordiGH
marioxcc: Más o menos. No hay una correspondencia exacta.
marioxcc
JordiGH: :S, ok
slocate
quotemstr but there are no menus items
quotemstr
slocate: Ok.
slocate
quotemstr is that weird?
quotemstr
,goodbugreport
fsbot
hmm, goodbugreport is every good bug report has three parts: what you did, what you expected to happen, and what actually happened. If you omit any of these parts, it becomes very difficult to help you.
quotemstr
,reportit
fsbot
reportit is Found a bug? Good. Tell us about it by using M-x report-emacs-bug
slocate
quotemstr i mean in the menu bar...
quotemstr
slocate: The OS X menu bar is at the top of the screen.
slocate
quotemstr in this version the OS X menu bar just reads Emacs by itself
Carbonish
anyone use the emacs-starter-kit and have an issue making new files?
slocate
Carbonish i do
Carbonish
it simply wants to open files that already exist..when i try to create a new buffer for the file i get 'no match'
damd
why do people use emacs-starter-kit at all?
Carbonish
damd: because we're new to emacs and it's suggested?
slocate
damd it is a good starting point, lots of good stuff
damd
,emacs-starter-kit
fsbot
[->] starter-kit is, like, [0] http://github.com/technomancy/emacs-starter-kit/tree/master
[1] See http://technomancy.us/119,
[2] a set of dotfiles to help beginners learn Emacs that bundles useful libraries.
damd
what does it have? i'm having trouble finding a short list of the features.
TeXnomancy
Carbonish: that's a feature of ido-mode
Carbonish
any suggestions on how to fix the file creation part?
Tex: do tell?
TeXnomancy
sometimes it's nicer to just disable ido-mode when you're creating a file
C-f in the prompt will do that
damd: it just bundles a bunch of useful libraries and improves on the defaults
Carbonish
sweet
damd
okay, but what are those libraries? elpa i get, but other than that?
