i'm just saying, i doubt stephen hawking could use emacs effectively
ryouma

taylanub
ryouma: I just mean all the different ways to do basic network configuration (interface up, static IP, default route to router IP in LAN, optionally wpa_supplicant with the correct password...)
wgreenhouse
unver: many people use emacs as a screenreader, see e.g. emacspeak
ryouma
unver: making emcas more accessible would be VERY welcome
taylanub
I've been using my own very simple /root/rc.network for that IIRC since I used OpenBSD
unver
wgreenhouse: neat
wgreenhouse
unver: it's more granular than ones that have no semantic knowledge of the content
ryouma
taylanub: ah i think the debian install version wfm
         

taylanub
http://sprunge.us/ARgP this is my network "configuration," where I comment in/out variables when I switch between the few networks and connection methods between which I very rarely move :P
wgreenhouse
taylanub: do you run your rc.network as a guix/dmd "service"?
taylanub
I'm not on GuixSD yet. I run it from rc.local on Debian (and used to do the same on OpenBSD)
wgreenhouse
nod
taylanub
systemd seems to be a pretty great system, but I'm also happy I can still slap some commands into rc.local and be done with it
wgreenhouse
taylanub: yes, there is always room for the user's unique-snowflake jank scripts no matter how well-integrated the system :-P
unver
M-x enable-blind-mode
taylanub
yup :D

tv raman at google uses emacs as does delysid, both blind
but delysid uses a braille keyboard iirc
wgreenhouse
e1f: tv raman is one of the principals of emacspeak, iirc
and gave a lot of the youtubeable talks about it
unver
woah
e1f
ya
unver
what about someone who can't type through conventional means?
wgreenhouse
unver: there are various packages for the use of footswitches, game controllers, etc. the challenge would be initial system integration, since these aren't all in one place

fsbot
pedals -- [0] http://www.kinesis-ergo.com/fs-savant-elite.htm
[1] it was half-seriously suggested that the extra [modifier] keys be implemented as pedals; typing on such a keyboard would be very much like playing a full pipe organ (http://www.jargon.net/jargonfile/d/doublebucky.html)
unver
built-in color blind themes
that's all the things I can think of, atm
ryouma
things like god mode toreduce chording

i want to rebind C-x 2 (and C-x 3) so that they also put the focus onto the newly created windows
what is the command executed with C-x 2 by default?
emacs_pro
it's (split-window-below) and (split-window-right)
         

cube``
ahh ok, thanks
unver
cube``: C-h c C-x 2
cube``
unver: ah yes true. the middle c is to select keybindings from the help list?
unver
cube``: C-h ?
cube``
C-h -->>> c <<<--
unver
right, C-h ? will give you the readme for C-h
or options anyway
cube``
unver: would this work? (global-set-key (kbd "C-x 2") (lambda () 'split-window-vertically 'other-window))
unver
*shrug* try it, i was just responding to 'what does C-x 2 do?'
cube``
unver: ok
ok i get wrong argument type

In other news, Donald Trump has declared the constitution (14th amendment) "unconstitutional" and "won't hold up in court." Will someone tell him that that /is/ what the courts defend? The constitution and the amendments that are part of it?
jlf
cube``: C-h C-h
wasamasa
interesting
apparently I get visits from robots that claim to be a windows firefox
ryouma
deego: isn't that the one that covers slaves? why is he declaring this?
jlf
deego: donald trump is a well-unknown unconstitutional scholar!!1
ryouma
so courts cannot find amendments unconstitutional?
jlf
and a strict destructionist, i might add
cube``
deego: all press is good press, congratulations for keeping him in the spotlight even though he seems to bother you
ecbrown
he doesn't bother me, i rather like him. at least he's not self-defeating pu**y
jlf
cube``: i suspect that the people on sex offender registries might disagree with you
hodapp
ecbrown: he rather does bother me, as funny as it is to see him annoy other Republicans.
deego
ryouma: it's the one about birthright citizenship
ryouma
ecbrown: what would be an example of a self-defeating pu**y politician?
deego
cube``: Glad I was able to contribute to his popularity here in #emacs
ecbrown
a lot of countries have a) never had or b) rescinded jus soli
jlf
ecbrown: let's leave genitalia out of it
ryouma
rudybot: t8 la en jus soli
rudybot
ryouma: jus soli
ryouma
sole decision?
cube``
jlf: sex registries are character assassinations given the way society views them, and guess if you're dead, good press is all press doesn't really matter anymore
ryouma
or is this something they serve in french restaurants?
ecbrown
ryouma: born on soil affords citizenship
ryouma
does he want schwarzennegger (spellign?) to become president or something?
cube``
ryouma: "he" being?
ryouma
trump
cube``
ryouma: but trump is running for president himself...?
ryouma
cube``: i am ignorant. jsut asking the question.
why is he seemingly attacking 14th amendment, or is this because he is a man of principle, and the 14th amendment's unconstitutionality sticks in his intellectual craw, just like people here have abstract, non-self-interested prefefences for programming languages?
deego
he's gonna build a giant wall to keep mexicans out. Conveniently, the mexican government will pitch in and pay for it.
ecbrown
ryouma: there is a concept called "birth tourism" -- people coming to the US (and other countries) to have give birth so their children attain citizenship
ryouma: it's not just a US/Mexico phenomenon
ryouma
ecbrown: ah, ic now
it's an anti-immigrant thing?
ecbrown
well, it's rather seen as gaming the system. i'm friends with a lot of legal and aspirant immigrants who are pissed that people are jumping the border, while they wait
ryouma
well, i imagine the embryos didn't have much choice about jumping the border, but ok
ecbrown
ryouma: no, but the embryos aren't being blamed, instead, those who execute it.

e1f
can we amend the channel rules to forbid mentioning trump?
wgreenhouse
e1f: I couldn't wven get the channel to briefly stop mentioning Xah Lee
*even
buhman
what's wrong with trump?
ecbrown
nuthin
wgreenhouse
e1f: who similarly preys on our attention with laughable proposals
Feoh
Folks.
Has anyone here ever successfully drawn a rectangle with artist mode on a Mac?
benaiah
"<jlf> benaiah: do you see the same delay in ssh sessions outside of emacs?" no, just in emacs
in vim ESC works right away
heddwch
Delay?
legumbre
Feoh: I just draw one with C-c C-r
benaiah
heddwch: yeah esc takes a bit to process in my emacs over ssh
heddwch
oh, evil-mode?
benaiah
same in emacs -Q too
