with the complication that themes have their own "safety" mechanism which tries to write out a list of hashes to `custom-safe-themes'
ThatOtherGuy
I've only one safe theme at the moment. The problem is emacs just completely ignores the others existance now.
Just from switching themes and reloading the Customize Themes buffer
e1f
let's ask about fonts and keyboards
wgreenhouse
ThatOtherGuy: yes, that can happen, if customize tries to load themes before packages are initialized. it's a big mess.
e1f
let's not forget favourite themes
ThatOtherGuy
wgreenhouse: so got any suggestions? I would like to see the themes I just installed :P
e1f
emaczen: no, i just read magazines (the new yorker and the economist) and watch movies
wgreenhouse
ThatOtherGuy: also some theme packages are broken in that they don't register themselves on `custom-theme-load-path'
ThatOtherGuy
I guess I could add their directories manually to customize
         

e1f
oh once in the while gq and esquire
wgreenhouse
ThatOtherGuy: I'm trying to list some pieces that might be implicated; unfortunately the ways they can go wrong are numerous
ThatOtherGuy
wgreenhouse: I'm just adding them to my custom load path. It's working out, thanks.
wgreenhouse
ThatOtherGuy: if that worked, it's likely that that theme package is badly written, and failed to include adding itself to custom-theme-load-path

hm
I've found a paper of a supposedly perfect sort algorithm (no extra space required, stable, in-place, nlogn) and there's exactly one algorithm presented for a part of the solution
what's wrong with these people
can't they, like, put the whole algorithm there
mvkil
hi. I'm going through https://truongtx.me/2013/03/10/emacs-setting-up-perfect-environment-for-cc-programming

wgreenhouse
wasamasa: code or it didn't happen amirite
wasamasa
wgreenhouse: yeah
mvkil
it refers to ECB.
wasamasa
wgreenhouse: maybe they got way too excited over their purely mathematical proof of it being the very best
mvkil
I cannot see it in M-x list-packages
wgreenhouse
wasamasa: maybe it works but only in Coq
wasamasa
wgreenhouse: lol
mvkil
any idea how can I install ecb on fedora 22?
wgreenhouse
that's one of the banned trolls ehre
e1f
what is the algorithm called? perfectsort?
ryouma
wasamasa: the margin was too small
wasamasa
e1f: it doesn't even have a name
"Sorting Stably, in Place, with O(nlogn) Comparisons and O(n) Moves"
wgreenhouse
mvkil: I don't think ECB has even had a stable release since package.el hit trunk
         

e1f
(Action) is suspicious of a sorting algorithm with no name
wgreenhouse
mvkil: you probably have to install it via the old school method
wasamasa
e1f: it's because there's no algorithm yet, just a mathematical proof
mvkil
wgreenhouse: I am not so excited about having it to tell the truth, I'm actually was hoping to find a recipe I could follow and start from.
didi
wasamasa: They need a better marketing team.
mvkil
but most were either too old, or unrelated.
wilfredh
mvkil: it's available on MELPA: http://melpa.org/#/ecb
wgreenhouse
mvkil: doesn't the CEDET website itself provide sufficient instructions?
indeed, no real releases since 2009
what melpa provides is some random git snapshot which maybe works
didi
Let's release VM snapshots.
The modern "it works on my machine".
wgreenhouse
didi: pretty much that's what smalltalkers used to do
didi
wgreenhouse: Everything is new again.
wgreenhouse
didi: except ourselves, we just keep heading toward death, while being bored by the repetition of "novel" ideas. :-|
...that was unusually dark even for me.

"GNU Taler - Electronic payments for a liberal society". OK, #emacs taught me "liberal" has different meanings for different societies. What "liberal" is this?
ryouma
you'd ahve to get context
didi
ryouma: Indeed.
I see the word "taxable", so it is not the "liberal" that I had in mind.
ryouma
i can guess
wgreenhouse
didi: I think they mean the mostly extinct classical liberalism, not the lolbertarians who want to simultaneously abolish the government and be petty dictators of the ruins
ryouma
it's the liberal of free speech, tolerance, etc. sort of a synonym for small-d democracy type.
wgreenhouse
aye. liberal as in liberty+rule-of-law
does anyone still believe in those in combination?
tromey
haha lolbertarian
benaiah
morning, #emacs
ryouma
the word liberal has been really destroyed in the us, if it used to mostly mean what i just said
did it mean that in terms of political attitudes in contrast to soemthign else? thus, people were explicitly anti-liberal in that sense in the us?
wgreenhouse
ryouma: sure--populists and anti-immigration parties have been a notable feature of the US political scene for its whole history
and those reject some or all of the liberal program by your definition
ryouma
that is the case now too. but were they explicitly anti-liberal-society int he sense that i mean. that is, did they admit to it and make that something to attack.
i know in the 1980s secular humanists were demonized
wgreenhouse
ryouma: the very first US political party, the Antimasons, had significant smells of this, since turn-of-the-nineteenth-century Masonry was associated with European republicanism and the French Revolution and such
and part of the fears stirred up by the Antimasons related to rabid freethinkers conspiring behind closed doors
the Alien and Sedition Acts also look pretty directly illiberal from a modern perspective on what free speech protections are about
doofy
is there a way to changle the default heading leves that ox-html exports to? h2 is too big for me for a top level heading
ryouma
doofy: yes
and i like "changle"
doofy
ryouma: ive searched around. Thought there might be a simple option. How should I due it
changle does have a nice ring
ryouma
(setq org-html-toplevel-hlevel 3)
(setq org-html-footnotes-section
(replace-regexp-in-string "h2" "h3"
org-html-footnotes-section))
benaiah
doofy: wdym h2 is "too big"? h1 literally means "top level heading", h2 means "second level heading" - if you want the visual weight changed, just add a css reference
doofy
benaiah: Ive exporting my CV to an HTML page that has some other headers on it that arent h1. Looks funny
benaiah
doofy: yeah, if you're embedding it into another page, that makes sense (the html5 standard is supposed to let you reset the semantic heading level with <article> et. al., but nobody really supports that)
doofy
ryouma: thanks!
benaiah
the web does have an annoying obsession with headings that are vastly too large
doofy
benaiah: what I really want to do is write a custom exporter so that it properly uses bootstrap blocks. Right now I have to piece together the two sections
benaiah
doofy: yeah, though unfortunately org has a very poor programmatic interface
ryouma
what is bootstrap blocks
i never learned the new exporter and just wrapped all the subtree exporters
didi
Uh, attacking anti-virus: http://googleprojectzero.blogspot.com/2015/09/kaspersky-mo-unpackers-mo-problems.html

doofy
ryouma: bootstrap is a frontend framework for web design. Has a nice system to allow you to layout pages with a grid
didi
Interesting. The money quote: "We have strong evidence that an active black market trade in antivirus exploits exists. Research shows that its an easily accessible attack surface that dramatically increases exposure to targeted attacks."
The antivirus touches everything, after all.
doofy
I have a few custom exporters, but this one is going to be more work with a small reward. It would basically need to be a combination for ox-beamer and ox-html. Mostly just the beamer block and column features mapped over to bootstrap
ryouma
kind of like hhv then
