(16:55:43) [me]: speaking of which, the dotted line that's normally on buttons and other non-entry things to show focus (very useful if you're using tab instead of the mouse) have recently stopped dispalying at all for me

(16:56:10) [me]: mostly on buttons

(16:56:16) [me]: at least that's where it bothers me the most

(16:59:13) thecartographers: hm, that sounds bad

(16:59:31) [me]: well, it's not bad in that it breaks anything really

(16:59:36) thecartographers: i'm sure it's been discussed ad nauseum in the past, and everyone knows it's important

(16:59:38) [me]: it just makes me feel like I'm drunk when doing things

(16:59:46) thecartographers: it breaks thinsg for people who can't use mice...

(16:59:50) [me]: true

(17:00:00) [me]: or who just don't :-P

(17:02:08) thecartographers: yeah but gnome people, who are in charge of gtk for better or worse

(17:02:14) thecartographers: don't care about what you want, jsut what you can do

(17:02:34) thecartographers: if you say "i can't use the mouse" then they accomodate: if you say "i won't use the mouse" then they say "use kde"

(17:03:31) thecartographers: and then you say "now i've tried using kde, but i've gone blind from the hideous sight. can you accomodate me?" and they'll say "yes, but you can still use your hands, so you only get a text-to-speech engine system, but no outlines on the buttons"

(19:03:26) Оберон: ...though technically "steal" may not be the right verb.

(19:03:39) Оберон: perhaps "mash into itty bitty two dimensional pieces" would be better.

(19:03:43) Оберон: But "steal" is a lot easier to type

(04:38:36) Оберон: What do you think, Jim?

(07:50:56) Оберон: Anyway, I was just trying it with the C400 mod

(07:51:04) Оберон: which sets the arrow scroll speed to a constant 400

(07:51:13) Оберон: except, thanks to a slight bug, it's 400*xmusic

(07:51:22) Оберон: so on the last song I was dealing with 600bpm arrows the whole way through

(08:00:12) [me]: why only 600bpm?

(08:00:25) Оберон: 1.5 * 400 = 600?

(08:00:31) [me]: oh

(08:00:48) [me]: not 400 * 300bpm

(08:00:54) Оберон: *blink*

(08:00:54) Оберон: no

(08:01:00) Оберон: that would be 400xmusic on max 300

(08:01:04) [me]: that's how I parsed what you said

(08:01:05) Оберон: which is of course completely unplayable

(08:01:20) [me]: it'd be gone before you could hit an arrow, that's for sure

(08:01:24) Оберон: the song would be over in about a quarter of a second!

(08:01:33) Оберон: I can make a song like that

(08:01:36) Оберон: it's called "beep"

(08:01:39) Оберон: it sounds like this:

(16:43:15) [me]: this keeps coming up entirely randomly... I'm running gaim 0.64 with rox+waimea as my session+window managers:

** (gaim:1141): CRITICAL **: file prefs.c: line 358 (gaim_prefs_get_bool): assertion `pref != NULL' failed

(17:48:08) [me]: this killed gaim 0.64:

(07:59:37) SeanEgn: no we don't

(08:02:50) [me]: oh? something I did...?

(08:03:10) [me]: or a gtk2 problem?

(08:03:45) SeanEgn: It's just that we don't really need to do anything

(08:04:04) [me]: oh, true :-P

(08:04:35) [me]: well, I found that 0.64 crashed every 10 mins or so using waimea as a wm, and now with xfwm4 only crashes once every couple hours.

(08:04:43) [me]: so I'm sticking with xfwm4 for now

(08:05:08) [me]: but 0.64 definitely has some issues that should be resolved eventually

(08:05:44) [me]: and as long as you're on the line, I have a question: is there any way to merge multiple instances of the same buddy, like 0.60 did?

(08:06:05) SeanEgn: 0.60 didn't do that

(08:06:09) [me]: it did for me

(08:06:17) SeanEgn: nope, you're wrong

(08:06:20) [me]: I have a cvs version in /opt that I can start up to prove it

(08:06:42) SeanEgn: How does a cvs version prove what 0.60 did?

(08:06:57) [me]: okay, *my* version of 0.60 does

(08:07:11) [me]: I think once you guys merged the edit buddies window and the online buddies window you got rid of that "feature" / "bug"

(08:07:11) SeanEgn: no, no version of 0.60 ever merged buddies

(08:07:15) [me]: mine did

(08:07:29) SeanEgn: No, stop being contrary and wrong.

(08:07:41) [me]: you're the one being contrary and wrong

(08:07:48) [me]: maybe you never saw it do that
