can you tramp over bluetooth?

VB: "why would you need to assign a function result to a variable when you can just pass the variable reference as the second argument instead, where it will be mutated in place? HEY LOOK A SQUIRREL!"
VB is the Katy t3h PeNgU1N oF d00m of programming languages

Man, I'm really digging das (die? der?) keyboard.
I like how loud it is.
I LIK EIT
I LIKE TO TYPE IT TYPE IT
wasamasa
(Action) recalls Fuco typing for weeks on a broken keyboard
benaiah
JordiGH: I got the soft switches (for a different mech kb) so I wouldn't bug my coworkers, and I'm beginning to regret not getting the clicky ones
I want to hear the click
JordiGH
It makes me feel like a real typist.
I AM CODER HEAR ME TYPE
How many people are really unable to use a completely unlabelled keyboard?
scottj
7 billion
benaiah
wasamasa: one summer I spilled whiskey on my laptop and would introduce myself in League as "I hjve a whskjy kebloard" to explain the typos
wasamasa
benaiah: I suppose you haven't seen this mess, but he kept writing here while repeating all kinds of random letters and cursing
benaiah
wasamasa: that was basically my experience
ryouma
i do not look at the keys, but i make mistakes
especially near op(
and 90-
JordiGH
We should label pianos too.

rudybot: fsbot vs rudybot
rudybot
miskatonic: In python, there can be substantial speed differences in using list comprehensions vs maps
ryouma
that would eliminate bebop overnight!
benaiah
ryouma: my kb puts the []/{} keys right above the left ctrl (which is where capslock is on a typical kb). It's quite confusing.
ryouma
benaiah: mine is normal but i transpose () with []
Fuco
who do people dub movies such that you can hear the original in the background... that's so freaking annoying
scottj
JordiGH: there are how many notes on a keyboard? 13? and then they're just repeated. Compared to a keyboard with 104 keys and many keys have two functions. Plus not everyone is expected to know how to use a piano but most people need to be able to use a computer keyboard.
miskatonic
my left control and shift key have already lost there label after less than two years, and the space bar is even more messed up

Let's popularize the Emacs Diet.
scottj
requires too much Control to be popular

i call my function as (my-fun 'some-variable) and define it as (defun my-fun (the-list) ...); how do i add an element to the list in the function now? (push ... the-list) doesn't do what i want
hodapp
scottj: well, it does require a Shift of perspective
blaenk
can I be setq-default mode-line-format without having to restart emacs to see the changes?
I C-x C-e on the sexp but it doesn't take effect

blaenk: force-mode-line-update
blaenk
thanks ryouma
ryouma
or switch buffers
blaenk
hmm neither are working
weird
miskatonic
not to be confused with forcer-mode-line-update
blaenk
yeah I only have force-mode-line-update
also tried switching buffers
mutbuerger
I'm looping `(with-temp-buffer (org-mode) (insert-file-contents file))' over a directory. performance-wise is there a more clever way to do this (in elisp)?

fm4d
Can anyone help me with weird package.el bug please? No action in package-list-packages (install, remove, update) work, after i press "r", emacs gets stuck at contacting host xxx (i triple checked by package-archives and everything is ok) and nothing happens. I tried to delete whole .emacs.d/elpa. Right now I can only install packages via the "install" button in package buffer.
Only thing I was able to google about it is this one https://github.com/dimitri/el-get/issues/698
But no mouse action actually works for me.
blaenk
oh it works if I use setq instead of setq-default
I guess for this time I'll use setq, and once I'm done I'll chagn eit to setq-default
wasamasa
fm4d: perhaps one of the repositories doesn't respond and times out instead
fm4d: so, either wait for like sixty seconds or remove repositories from `package-archives'
deego
,help-swap is To change order of notes within a term, use ", 3->1 in term". To change the name of a term, use ",mv term1 term2"
fsbot
Created new entry for "help-swap"
fm4d
wasamasa: I dont think that is the problem, because with emacs -Q its the same
wasamasa
fm4d: it could be GNU ELPA which is always included
fm4d: even if you use -Q
fm4d
I have this problem for something about week or two already, I doubt elpa would be down for so long.
+ package-install works for me
for any repo
so it really seems like a problem with package.el
wasamasa
if you say so
fm4d
hmm.. I am not making this up
parsnip
rudybot: you don't know emacs, and you only use vi when you have some edits to do on a remote
rudybot
parsnip: Actually, I don't need a legion. I just need one person to say that TI didn't respond to the counter-claim and hence someone, somewhere, reposted the keys online.... although that might result in the article getting protected from edits and more bans.

any ideas on my new workflow? so i'm thinking of putting majority of my configs and related notes in a single repo that i'll put in private github repo. however, a while ago, i became rather attached to keeping my .emacs (and .emacs.org) in dropbox. can't envision all the ways i could approach this. maybe i'll just do the dramatic switch to no dropbox .emacs, and see how it goes.
npr
parsnip: orchestrate a series of on-load on-save hooks to git pull/push from each conceivable environment?
parsnip
npr: not sure if joking :). you mean to get git repo to behave more like dropbox?
npr
parsnip: Perhaps! I've never actually used dropbox for that sort of thing, all of my emacs environments are different enough to make it unworkable
fommil
is there a way to programmatically insert a yasnippet? I'm trying to use yas to insert a template called "head" when the buffer is empty.
but I can't find anything obvious to call. `yas-insert-snippet' assumes interaction, and doesn't take a paramemer. If I could obtain the template from the snippet-tables, I think I could do something.
parsnip
npr: i use .emacs across osx, windows, gnu/linux, with conditionals for a handful of settings.
scottj
fommil: yeah that was my first try too, quite disappointing. (progn (insert "abookmark")(yas-expand))
fommil: (found from yasnippet-tests.el)
parsnip
my settings for remote are usually some subset, but since i'm .emacs.org'ing, i could tag the sections and just copy those over when i need them
fommil
scottj: :-) yeah, I was abotu to do that. Sounds a reasonable hack, but actually maybe deserves a ticket
scottj
fommil: note also yas-expand-snippet
fommil
scottj: that's where I started. I tried copying the logic but got lost with the table
(the snippets table)
I'm actually happy enough with this hack
scottj
fommil: yeah I don't actually know how to use yas-expand-snippet correctly
drduck
anyone here use emacs for their c++ development?
foobarbarfoo123
hello
How do I get help for a thing under a cursor, e.g. functions, vars ...
scottj
foobarbarfoo123: what mode?
foobarbarfoo123
text mode, elisp for example
scottj
scottj
foobarbarfoo123: C-h v or C-h f should have the thing under cursor as the default
foobarbarfoo123: foobarbarfoo123 with elisp-slime-nav you can go to the source of var/fun with M-.
foobarbarfoo123: so C-h v RET should work
