Does someone know how to fix that ?

bojohan: oooh, slick!
Mon_Ouie: not me
I've long suspected that nobody actually gets any value from flymake, but then I'm a cynic
jordanb_
All of the emacs IDE attemps end up feeling like antlers stapled to a dog's head.
Mon_Ouie
But I'm somehow bored of trying to compile my code three times before getting an executable :P
jordanb_
We should get an internet douchebag to promote elisp.
First we need a web framework.
offby1
Mon_Ouie: I didn't know that one compiled Ruby.
I thought it was like Perl or Python -- you just ran it
jordanb_
The biggest douchebag here is bpalmer, or maybe johnw.
Mon_Ouie
Yup, but I use flymake in C++ too

Why not make a probe with boots on its struts that has some kind of armature to plant a flag on Mars?
pjb
jordanb_: the whole being programmed in emacs lisp!
jordanb_
Seems like that would be a much more cost-effective form of "flags and bootprints" space exploration.
And the probe could even do some real science on the side.

thou hast unmanned me, sir

Did it hurt?
Heh.
I just discovered Wadler's Law, a corollary of the bikeshed concept that says that the bulk of a discussion about a language will center on its syntax.

I like it how that Bertrand Meyer guy defined a set of colors that Eiffel code "must" be presented in.
And now he trolls Wikipedia changing Eiffel examples to match his 'standard'.

didn't know about that :)

sad, really
Life has gotten better in at least one way: most of my clocks now deal automatically with Daylight Savings Time.
(Now if only we could _abolish_ DST ...)
chrisb
offby1: silver lining, that!
jordanb_
We should abolish standard time.
I like DST
It stays light out later.
Standard time seems like it's an endangered species anyway, they keep on making DST bigger and bigger.

the wikipedia needs a photograph of a jigger http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jigger_%28bartending%29
jordanb_
Go to a bar and order a drink. You'll see one.
offby1
(Action) files that next to "bushel" and "peck"
jordanb_
In Australia a jigger usually measures 30ml and 15ml respectively. In Scandinavia and most other parts of Europe that use the metric system, the measures are 20ml and 40ml.
A typical British "jigger" measures 50ml on the larger side, and 25ml on the smaller side.
^-- There's the ole Dunkurk Sprit chap!

The Brits need stronger drinks so they can get drunk faster.
offby1
do they have more to get drunk about?
rgr
Dunkirk
dim
you mean "Drunk! ik..."
jordanb_
offby1: The pubs in britian are only open til 7PM so they have to be very efficient if they are to get drunk enough to go hooliganing.
ned
are pubs really only open till 7pm?
dim
11pm is more like it I think
bremner_
most people don't go to the bar here until then, and I live in a small conservative town in Canada
offby1
jordanb_: that can't be right.
hacim
pubs in britian do not close at 7pm
webben
We have 24 hour licencing nowadays.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4464284.stm
But /pubs/ will typically take last orders at 11pm.

hi, am trying to get newsticker working, seems like exactly what I want from the screenshots, but I can't seem to get the feeds to show up in the treeview
jordanb_
Are you talking about emacs?
thatdavidmiller
It's downloading feeds, but just not displaying them in the treeview
jordanb_
This is a channel for emacs -- the text editor.
thatdavidmiller
Yeah, I'm in emacs - http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/NewsTicker
newsticker.el first appeared in GNU Emacs version 22."
jordanb_
They should seriously quit adding stupid random sh*t to emacs.
Just because some freshman college student made a half-working plugin that does something lame doesn't mean it needs to be folded into the distribution.
dim
gnus rss support ain't good, that said
offby1
thatdavidmiller: did you type "M-x newsticker-show-news"? That worked for me
thatdavidmiller
offby1: I
offby1
thatdavidmiller: J
thatdavidmiller
offby1: I get the three windows, but no feeds shown in the left-hand one. when I try newsticker-plainview The items I'd expect are there, so it's definately wgett'ing fine, just not displaying in the tree
offby1
hm
no idea :-|

Grr, journalists are always talking about hardware "running on" software.
that's EXACTLY WRONG
grr
Xantoz
journalists don't know sh*t
today they declared 4chan the official forum of the swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)
shabble
they must know something, even if it's just enough to get it consistently wrong.
you'd expect them to be accidentally right occasionally otherwise
Xantoz
in the context och some dude on 4chan threatening KTH

dim
they should know what it is people want to read

Xantoz: haha oh wow

seems they've patched it now though, meh

The full documentation for yes is maintained as a Texinfo manual. If the info and yes programs are properly installed at your site, the command
info coreutils 'yes invocation'
should give you access to the complete manual.

By the way, I tried watching a few twilight zone episodes on cbs.com
But the experiecne was terrible.
In addition to general flakiness and requireing you to watch commercials during the show (which would cause the player to flip from fullscreen-mode)
They made you watch a commercial between every *action*.
Flip to the next show, or try to browse the archives -- you gotta watch a 30 second commerical for every click.
And also the commercials were way way way louder than the show.
So now I"m going to get them from the pirate bay.
