punkass_i could never live without tabs now03:23
Hrdwr_BoBno-one is forcing you to use tabs03:23
DimSumUnfortunately, it certain browsers, you have no choice.03:23

DimSumdommi: Um, no.03:31
DimSumPoint is, I need to install VB .NET 2005 so that I can finish writing Epiphany for Windows03:31

DimSumIf they used css font-family assignments and Tables, they wouldn't have these problems03:33
Hrdwr_BoB*ahem*03:33
subterrificDimSum: then you complain about tabbed browsing because you can't switch tabs with a keystroke, and refuse to use ctrl-tab and say you'd rather switch through a list of every window to get to whatever browser window you're looking for. all along ignoring the fact that firefox doesn't force tabbed browsing on you03:33

subterrificit runs azureus, thats the only java app i use08:05
cefsubterrific: cool.. I should try it with a few things I need to use.. might work a bit better than 1.4, which has issues08:06
subterrificoh, and ourTunes. i ran that at work08:06
crimsun1.5.0 final ("Tiger") is vastly improved over 1.4.x08:06

natethe answer is 'Ctrl+Shift'01:10
natesee, I knew there was a keyboard way01:10
sanxiynIMO, drop target should ask about copy/move/link, and it is not to be done from keyboard or from drag source...01:11
coravelhi, i've never tried debian or debian based distros, i'm a long time slackware user, i wonder if ubuntu is for me as it is said to have releases every six months with new GNOME versions?01:11

micXcoravel, no-one here will know.01:12
coravelit's the package system i hesitate :)01:12
natesince wherever possible I prefer to use copy/paste rather than drag/drop to move files. Far too easy to accidentally do horrid things to files when dragging and dropping01:13

sanxiynsubterrific: I prefer ROX way better. :-)01:21
natecome to think of it, one Windows idiom I would love to see die is having file-open dialogs 01:21
sanxiynsubterrific: No, I don't hate it because it's from Windows. no.01:21
monkeyc-unboh god yes01:21
nateI would like my file-open dialogs to be a real file manager window01:21
subterrificnate: Mac does it the same way, but with the respective mac keyboard keys01:21
monkeyc-unbthat would be nice nate01:21
subterrificsanxiyn: and what is the ROX way?01:21
micXwtf is ROX?01:22
sanxiynsubterrific: You just drag, without any modification key, and drop.01:22
coravelguys, thanks for the ideas, the download will take time, i think i should go back and play a little more fallout 2 :) see ya after the install!01:22
sanxiynsubterrific: And it asks when you drop. copy/move/link/cancel.01:22
subterrificsanxiyn: that seems slow01:22
subterrificasking for user input on the screen is always slower than letting the user press a key01:23
monkeyc-unbi prefer the windows way to be honest but perhaps thats because i work with windows for a living01:23
subterrificthats why keyboard shortcuts are called shortcuts01:23
monkeyc-unblinux is for my pleasure :)01:23
subterrificmonkeyc-unb: the windows way is actually the mac way01:23
monkeyc-unbyeah i assumed that subterrific01:24
sanxiynsubterrific: Well, it's on ROX filer, and ROX makes very good uses of drag and drop in other areas too :-)01:24
sanxiynsubterrific: Like file saving by drag and drop.01:24
subterrifici like how windows added the idea of copy & pasting files though01:24
monkeyc-unbthough i cant remember my old mac behaviours.. too long ago for my addled mind01:24
subterrificapple ended up borrowing that idea from microsoft01:24
sanxiynhttp://rox.sf.net/01:25
monkeyc-unbi use keyboard shortcuts a lot to be honest, its faster than a button in windows.01:25
monkeyc-unbmind you i also work heavily in the command line which is not normal for windows users :)01:25
subterrificdrag and drop works for simple quick operations, but as soon as you need to navitage a large hierarchy, it fails01:26
=== dropster [~drop@port486.ds1-vby.adsl.cybercity.dk] has joined #ubuntu
subterrificwhich is why copy & paste for files makes so much sense01:27
micXwhat I despise about windows drag n drop, is when the icon you are dragging passes over some slow network drive on it's way, and the whole process pauses while windows inspects the network...01:27
sanxiynsubterrific: That's why I don't maintain large hierarchy anyway. :-)01:27
subterrificmicX: hehe, thats awful01:27
monkeyc-unbmicx that does suck01:27
subterrificsanxiyn: sometimes you don't have a choice, and then you're screwed with the ROX way01:28
sanxiynmicX: Hm, and Nautilus is any different?01:28
micXsanxiyn, I haven't experienced it on nautilus, but I haven't gone looking either.01:28
subterrificsanxiyn: yes, nautilus waits for you to open the window before it tries to scan the network drive01:28
micXI think it's a windows 'assumption' that you will be using the passed-over drive. very helpful of them.01:29
monkeyc-unbi did once read an explanation of that but cannot remember why micX01:31
monkeyc-unbyou can prevent it happening from memory01:32
subterrificsanxiyn: i agree with not creating hierarchies, i think file systems should be search driven. i've felt that way for a very long time. one of my first coding projects when i was learning to code on a mac in 95 was to create a file browser that stored all files in one directory and presented a metadata based browsing interface01:32
sanxiynsubterrific: Wow, cool.01:32
=== nate plays with Nautilus a bit
nateHmm01:32
nateon the whole, I think the addition of Spatial Mode is a small step forward01:33

subterrificit would be ideal if when you saved a file you didn't give it a file name, but instead typed some keywords or a short description01:36
natebrr01:36
subterrificand you could just use that to find all your files01:36
natethere are projects along that line, in both Windows and Linux01:37

nateso I guess it will become the future at some point01:37
natebut I do not like that idea at all01:37
smeggydamn gmail is nice01:37
nateI want my files to stay where they are put01:37
smeggyi'm a bitch to google now01:37
smeggy:(01:37
sanxiynI do like Gmail's "archive" and "label" (instead of "folder").01:37
subterrificthats basically what i was trying to do in 95, but the problem then was dealing with file open dialogs in other applications01:37
smeggyYeah.01:38
nateand when, not if, my system crashes, I want it to be very easy to copy my data, in pieces, to my new machine01:38
micXsubterrific, some people do that now, you should see my CEO search for files on his powerbook. It hurts to watch...01:38
nateanything that requires a system-wide metadata database sounds like recreating the Windows Registry at the file system level01:38
subterrificmicX: yeah, applications aren't designed to work that way yet01:39
nateI suppose I could live with a metadata layer as long as it was optional and didn't cause any data loss if it got deleted and recreated01:39

nateOh, also Reiser of ReiserFS is pushing this vision too01:40

sanxiynnate: Well, that's no problem. :-)01:40
subterrificBeFS was that way also, it was such a pleasure to work with01:41
nateso that when, not if, I have to transfer my files to a file system that does not understand that kind of metadata, it doesn't get destroyed01:41
subterrificwhich is why Apple hired the BeFS guy to recreate that layer on HFS+01:41
natehmm01:41
subterrificwhich is what Spotlight is in "Tiger"01:41
nateooh01:41
nateso does that mean Spotlight will be the first shipping implementation of such a system?01:42
subterrificno, BeOS did it01:42
subterrificand it was really amazing01:42
smeggyBeOS did basically everything first ;)01:42
natehmm01:42
natebut it had no apps01:42
subterrificyou could use the BeOS file browser as your email client gui01:42
nateso it was essentially one giant proof-of-concept system01:42
sanxiynnate: It had some commercial apps.01:42
smeggyIt had the apps that mattered ;)01:42
natesubterrific: okay, that's clever. ;)01:43
subterrificfor example: you create a live query for emails, ordered by date01:43
natething is, it's easy to do such a thing on an isolated, stand-alone system that does not have to share data with other platforms01:43
nateand that's great, but it's not the world most of us live in01:43
subterrificand it would open a file browser window with all those emails in it, and when new files were created, they'd show up01:44
natehmm01:44
nateif you could do such a thing and have it fully compatible with a standard filesystem, that'd be neat01:44

subterrificthe one step Be never made, that i think made it far less useful was automatically generating metadata from file content.01:45
natemmm01:46
subterrificnot doing that i mean01:46
subterrificnate, well thats the thing, as soon as you copied your files to some other non-BeFS file system, you'd lose that metadata01:46
natebut you'd still have the original data?01:46
nateif there were a way of doing it, like say, a small .xml file in each virtual folder... hmm01:47
subterrificif they had added some sort of plugin based system that was able to automatically generate metadata from file contents, then it would have been far more useful.01:47
subterrificwhich is what reiserfs4 is trying to do...plugin based file system01:48
natewe seem to have rather a lot of file systems at the moment01:48
topyliahh. got samba printing to work. not with cups though. good old bsd-style lpd rules!01:49
nateFAT/VFAT, ISO9660 with various flavours, ZIP/TAR/GZIP et al, ext2/ext3, NTFS4/5... and that's just Linux/Windows01:50
subterrificthere is a gnome project along these lines also: http://www.gnome.org/projects/beagle/01:50
nateand at least they all have vaguely similar semantics: a hierarchy of folders01:50
subterrificright, there is no way of moving away from heirarchy any time soon01:51
natehow you'd create a non-hierarchical database file system and have it fully interoperable with all the various hierarchical systems that would be used to store, eg, backups on... hmm01:51
subterrificbut you can augment it with better interfaces, like spotlight, and Beagle01:51
nateI guess there's two approaches. One, store the 'real' data in a hierarchy and add a metadata layer, stored in some kind of database01:51
nateor just wallop the whole lot into one big SQL database, which is what I hope Microsoft is not looking at doing01:51
natewhat does Beagle do?01:52
subterrific"Beagle is an experimental tool for indexing and searching your data"01:52

natehmm01:57
subterrificthis is neat also: http://nat.org/dashboard/01:57
nateso, what kind of data is it aware of?01:57
Qo-noSBeagle ain't it the Spotlight-like tool destained for inclusion into GNOME proper in 3.0 or later?01:57
nateall these examples seem to be based around IM conversations, and that's the one thing I don't use01:57
subterrificnate: potentially all data01:57
natehmm01:58
natebut it has to be told somehow that, eg, saved IM conversations are IM conversations and not just text files01:58
nateotherwise, a simple grep would tell me this information. What's it adding that grep isn't?01:59
nate(well, a nice GUI, I guess... but I presume there's some deep magic under the hood as well?)01:59
subterrificright, for every custom file type some smart filter has to be written to extract relevant information01:59

subterrificlook, simple analogy02:00
nateyou can no longer search your entire hard drive for that file you know has the info you want02:00
nateyou can only search 'known' file types02:00
moyogodoesn't it keep an index of things?02:00
subterrificimagine if you had to download every file on the internet with wget and then grep the file to do a web search02:00

subterrifici'm pretty sure they're going to find some way to ruin .NET/CLR02:02
nateand be able to search that before hitting Google02:02
natecombine that with something like Beagle and you could be onto a winner02:03
subterrificnate: beagle will do that02:03
nate(well, apart from that there's no way currently in Firefox to save your browse cache... but I'm sure a small extension could easily be written)02:03
subterrificits only a matter of beagle having code to know about your browser's cache file format02:04

monkeyc-unbor failing that can anyone reccomend a good RSS feed reader ?02:33
Kosaisubterrific: Yeah.  I think it was for laziness reasons rather than technological ones.02:33
Kosaimonkeyc-unb: I use sage inside Firefox.02:33
monkeyc-unbtried sage, just looking at the other options02:33
nateHow do you find sage?02:34
smeggyLiferea is a good reader.02:34
nateI think I tried it and didn't like it much, but I can't remember02:34
nateI rather like the built-in LiveBookmark feature, but it's pretty minimal02:34
subterrifici used Straw RSS reader for a while02:35
KosaiI like sage.  Firefox 1.0PR has inbuilt RSS reading, but sage gives a nice summary of which of your feeds has changed since you last read it, etc.02:35
subterrificit works well02:35

baietas_would apt-get install linux-kernel-2.6.8.1-3-686-smp upgrade my kernel and enable "hyper threading" ?02:35

Kamionoh, you've gone through the installer already?06:23
jaso1yeah....i have a standard drive that I installed to06:23
jaso1my controller is the ITE8212 integrated 06:24
