miskatonic
since when does rudybot talk gibberish?
JordiGH
It looks like perfectly good Russian to me, not gibberish.
mrmyers
You might object that its effect is relatively minor compared to that of the spoken variant, but I think that just puts it on the same footing as a minor dialect.
SamB_laptop
JordiGH: that's odd, considering what went in
Fuco
SamB_laptop: that's what the original from wgreenhouse ment :)
sg2002
Does it support any interesting languages? I think we should switch to klingon, or maybe dothraki, since all the cool kids are using it.

Hello! I'm using org 8.3.1 and attempting to tangle to init.el but I'm
finding that some of the code blocks are being excluded. I'm having
trouble finding the pattern in why certain blocks are tangling when
others aren't. The only clue I have is "comment-region-default:
Nothing to comment" in Messages after the tangle. Anyone seen this
before?
SamB_laptop
and I think we should start eating horses
hodapp
start?
         

fsbot
I think START is (SynTactic Analysis using Reversible Transformations), a natural language processing system, at http://start.csail.mit.edu/
hodapp
NO
wgreenhouse
fsbot chose different, less-used (but more Russian) vocab for its version
which is interesting
Fuco
mrmyers: I agree that writing has an effect on speech, that's undisputable, and I never tried to disagree with that.
to_json
is there a good way to get margin notifications from fly(make|check) like syntastic (ex: http://blog.joncairns.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/ruby-syntastic.png)
the buffer and jumps are great, but the visual cue is really good for my brain
ryouma
to_json: there exists the fringe for such things; whether anybody uses them for that i don't know
to_json
emacs calls the left marc=gin the fringe?
*margin
ryouma
to_json: no, margin and fringe are separate
margins are not used much
,fringe
fsbot
[->] From memory, Fringes are [0] (info "(emacs)Fringes")
[1] the little column that shows those wrap-around arrows for long lines
ryouma
,margin
fsbot
[->] MarginMode is, like, [0] at http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs/MarginMode
[1] see also rulermode
[2] or M-x highlight regexp RET ^.\{71,\} RET to mark lines over 70 chars long.
to_json
gotcha
miskatonic
someone needs to tell nickserv that not each typo is an attempt of a malicious intrusion
ryouma
margins are used for things like darkroom type things
to_json
and now that I know that term google was actually helpful lol
http://www.flycheck.org/manual/latest/Reporting-results.html
thank you ryouma
ryouma++
dang fsbot doesn't appear to keep score

Noted, ryouma. One karma-point for to_json!

wgreenhouse
to_json: indeed it doesn't
,karma to_json

to_json
,i wonder if it attempts to parse every leading comma

mrmyers
Fuco: Generally, an encoding of something isn't directly impacting the thing it encodes.
miskatonic
and what will he get once he reaches 100 karma points? A refrigerator with Stallman's favourite sandwich from 1985?
wgreenhouse
miskatonic: immunity from garbage collection for the next several sweeps
to_json
stallman doesn't eat sandwiches. sandwiches by nature can only be free as in beer, not free as in freedom
stallman only eats his own feet

miskatonic
at least emacs' garbage collection is not broken.
adgtl2
Using erc now
not sure why people use circe
erc seem more commoon
mrmyers
to_json: Most of the time, you are free to modify a sandwhich as you see fit.
ecraven
adgtl2: I like circe better :)
adgtl2
ecraven: for what reasons
mrmyers
to_json: I don't know of anyone who requires one to sign a ToS to eat their sandwhiches.
convert
hi everyone, I would just like to ask if there is a setting in emacs where it would auto close a comment. And add a ' * ' when a new line is entered?
to_json
but is your right to modify the sandwich fully transferable, mrmyers
fourier
convert: use something like (global-set-key "\C-j" 'indent-new-comment-line)
mrmyers
to_json: I believe so...
fourier
convert: then if you press ctrl+j at the end of the line with a comment, next line will have * added automatically and so on
convert
fourier: thanks, I had tried it but it does create a new comment block also? Maybe I am doing it wrong?
I mean, it kinda does create new strings like /* */
tali713
mrmyers: I think that if we ignore trivialities like "which exact license" and look at the spirit of the matter, "grilled cheese" is certainly free, while "hot pockets" are nowhere near.
fourier
convert: ah, i create comments like this with M-;
mrmyers
tali713: I think 'hot pockets' would count more as the equivalent of Tivo-ization?
tali713
I think it would be kind of cool though to release FS convenience foods. complete with recipe on the label.
convert
fourier: ah, alright. Does it auto closes comments also? My config might be wrong but I will try it again. Thanks.
tali713
mrmyers: hmm, perhaps, as in a non-free derivitive of a free product? e.g. a "pie" or "pasty" is the source from which the "hot pocket" is derived.
to_json
so sandwiches are MIT, LGPL at best
bremner
(Action) checks toxicology report for #emacs water
fourier
convert: M-; inserts /* */ for me at the end of the line
tali713
to_json: to broad of a declaration, that's equivalent to saying the category of word processors is inherently...
mrmyers
Nevermind, misunderstood tivoization.
tali713
food in general may have all started free, but by the time you get to classical french cookbooks protection of food IP is already present.
mrmyers
This is more like incorporating binary blobs I guess.
blackwind_123
what is C-u C-c . in org mode bound to...? if i try C-h k "C-u C-c ." it return defination for C-u only
tali713
mrmyers: for a start, then since ratios aren't given, even if you had access to those blobs (which you might) you still couldn't replicate the original.
mrmyers
I think food branding would definitely count as non-DFSG
convert
fourier: Ah, I think I had messed up my setttings a bit since I couldn't reproduce it. But I will try it out again
mrmyers
tali713: No, I mean the food itself as the blob.
tali713
I mean, even the simplest of corn chips (corn, water, salt, oil) still don't give ratios or sequence.
mrmyers: :)
yogurt otoh, is not only source included, you can use it to replicate itself and derivatives, yogurt is free food!
fourier
blackwind_123: C-u is a universal prefix argument. you can just read the doc about C-c . to find what it does with C-u
convert: it works for me when I run emacs -q
tali713
granted it still usually lacks instructions for doing so, but I'll handwave that for the moment
