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

xkeycaps --  apt-get install xkeycaps
 Fire it up, assign the KeySym Meta_L and the modifier mod_1 to the desired key for meta, and assign the KeySym Alt_L and the modifier mod_4 to the desired key for Alt,

Why not make a probe with boots on its struts that has some kind of armature to plant a flag on Mars?
jordanb_: the whole being programmed in emacs lisp!
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
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.
M-x customize-face :p
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 :)
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 ...)
offby1: silver lining, that!
We should abolish standard time.
It stays light out later.
Standard time seems like it's an endangered species anyway, they keep on making DST bigger and bigger.
Somebody call Cory Doctorow
the wikipedia needs a photograph of a jigger http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jigger_%28bartending%29
Go to a bar and order a drink. You'll see one.
(Action) files that next to "bushel" and "peck"
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.
do they have more to get drunk about?
you mean "Drunk! ik..."
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.
are pubs really only open till 7pm?
11pm is more like it I think
most people don't go to the bar here until then, and I live in a small conservative town in Canada
jordanb_: that can't be right.
pubs in britian do not close at 7pm
We have 24 hour licencing nowadays.
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
Are you talking about emacs?
It's downloading feeds, but just not displaying them in the treeview
This is a channel for emacs -- the text editor.
Yeah, I'm in emacs - http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/NewsTicker
newsticker.el first appeared in GNU Emacs version 22."
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.
gnus rss support ain't good, that said
thatdavidmiller: did you type "M-x newsticker-show-news"? That worked for me
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
.oO("oh, _that_ David Miller")
Grr, journalists are always talking about hardware "running on" software.
journalists don't know sh*t
today they declared 4chan the official forum of the swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)
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
in the context och some dude on 4chan threatening KTH
they should know what it is people want to read
Xantoz: haha oh wow
seems they've patched it now though, meh
newsticker is horrible.
I ende dup using the excellent newbeuter in a screen session.
I just use Google Reader for everything.
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.
that's just like "hello" too :)
using the emacs interface to g-reader?

There's a gremlin on the wing, I tell you!
it's OK, the pilots aren't letting him steer
If William Shatner was on a plane with me, it wouldn't be the gremlin who was scary.
That would be awesome.
You could get him to do his version of "I'm slim shady"
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.
it's almost as if some sort of force impelled people towards the better user experience.
e1f: THANKS FOR THAT BREAKING NEWS!!1
well, the search engine, anyway. but what is google without search
truly a question for the ages.
