troy_snothlit: So yes... perhaps abandoning the Gibbon inspiration is a key bit of progress?05:22
troy_snothlit: What would work as a nice embodiment for the release in terms of a simple singular term?05:23
nothlitmost single words are overdone and cliched though05:24
troy_sWell then let's avoid those too.05:24
nothlitBHSPitMonkey: hey05:24
troy_sI think avoiding the cliches is pretty important (despite the fact that Ubuntu's most cliched motifs have yet to be fully enunciated to the mainstream audience in a successful manner)05:24
nothlitIn terms of words that would go with the color scheme I'm imagining now? calm and productive05:27
nothlitif you go with release name, warm and playful (if you're really gutsy--'punchy')05:28
troy_snothlit: Try the reverse -- work on a communication goal relative to your audience05:30
troy_snothlit: And have a look for palettes that work towards achieving that.05:31
troy_snothlit: Trying to use a palette and reverse engineering communication is pretty tricky.05:31
troy_snothlit: For example, one of my favorite palettes of all time was Dirk Uhlenbrock's05:32
troy_snothlit: Sorry it was David Lincoln's palette..05:32
troy_snothlit: It is an awsome collection of 11 colors05:33
troy_snothlit: Completely taken from a study of photographs of accident victims and cadavers.05:33

troy_sViscera Cyan:  77.170.17205:36
troy_sTC:  The color of skin surrounding a stab wound.05:36
troy_sPT:  Mushroomy color of skin an tissues in advanced putrefaction.05:36
troy_sBHSPitMonkey:  Color of total and utter putrefaction of human tissues.05:37
troy_sLL:  Color of very early putrefaction seen one to two days after death.05:37
nothlithow gruesome05:37
troy_sAG:  Color of human fat immediately under the skin.05:37
troy_sLV:  Gray Green of liveor mortis.05:37
BHSPitMonkeywas that an insult?05:37
troy_sLG:  Blue gray of earlies livor mortis, occuring before lior verdigris.05:38
troy_sTrae:  The color of fresh oxygenated blood.05:38
troy_sCY:  Human skin after the blood has left it.05:38
troy_sCM:  The color of unoxygenated blood and tissue deep within the body cavity.05:38
troy_sVC:  The amazing color of healthy human lungs and intestines.05:38
nothlitBHSPitMonkey: he meant Black, its just the autocompletion prolly05:39
BHSPitMonkey(I know)05:39
troy_ssorry BHSPitMonkey I hit tab05:39
troy_sAnyways, it shows you two things:05:39
BHSPitMonkeyI've never been described so vividly and yet so harshly before.05:39
troy_s1) That palette is a critical element of design.05:40
troy_s2) That a _real_ palette isn't a smattering of all hues across a given value set.05:40
troy_s3) That a palette should be SELECTIVE in colour, and work towards the ultimate communication goal (at the given audience)05:40
troy_sand perhaps most importantly, all elements that Ubuntu's clueless design pattern fails to grasp or even begin to understand.05:42
darkmatterclueless is a wee bit of an understatement06:06
troy_sdarkmatter: Amen06:14
troy_sThrow k in there too.06:14
troy_sdarkmatter:  I sincerely hope Diana's work kicks the crap out of the scene and garners much deserved attention.06:22
darkmattertroy_s, thats the fedora stuff, correct?06:23
troy_sdarkmatter: Yes.  Diana Fong MFA06:24
troy_sdarkmatter: A true process and a true result.06:24
darkmatteryes... her work is gorgeous06:24
troy_sShe has been pushing more and more06:24
troy_sand despite being bullied by several longstanding 'factions', her work is simply awsome.06:24
troy_sI am pretty certain that certain factions of the community don't want to be displaced by folks like her.06:25
darkmatterindeed it is. I dl'd the redhat artwork just so I could get mypaws on the flying high art06:26
troy_sdarkmatter: On a side note, you watching the digg drama?06:28
troy_sdarkmatter: It is awsome.06:28
darkmatteryeah.. on and off06:28
troy_sdarkmatter: It is _really_ amazing right now06:31
troy_sdarkmatter: Watching the burning of a billion dollar empire in about 60 minutes.06:31
troy_sdarkmatter: Here is some very well communicated design:07:16
troy_sCan you spot an audience?07:16
troy_sdarkmatter: If you are interested07:32
darkmatterhmm.. interesting07:33
darkmatterI may just enter in that07:40
BHSPitMonkeyI almost thought that was an ASCII Design Competition07:41
BHSPitMonkeyat first url glance07:41
BHSPitMonkeyhmm, I can't pull up digg.com07:43
BHSPitMonkeyis Digg finally experiencing the Digg effect?07:43
darkmatteryup... they're just getting slammed with hex code07:44
BHSPitMonkeyI got their maintenance page07:45

lapotroy_s: inkboard, interesting, do you know how the heck it works? :-)06:55
troy_slapo played with it in a limited capacity, working on some experiments for collaborating in the near future06:56
troy_si had it working quite well at one point, but htat was early going06:57
lapotroy_s: have you got some link with intructions on how to use it?06:57
nothlityou get a jabber account and add each other06:58
nothlitthen login to it @ inkscape, and share a session06:58
lapono particular requirements?06:59
troy_snothlit: We really need to have some painless wiki page for this.06:59
lapoI can use mu normal account?06:59
troy_slapo: Just a jabber server that works with full data.06:59
troy_slapo: I'll try to set a session up with you07:01
troy_slapo as soon as i finish up with my ubuntustudio details.07:01
nothlittroy_s: did you design the logo/gtk theme?07:02
troy_slapo: Have you got a recent SVN compiled?07:02
troy_snothlit: For uS -- no.  I simply advised on various elements.  I was working on Fantastic Four 2 while all of that was going on.07:03
lapotroy_s: nope, atm I'm using the stock feisty one07:03
troy_slapo:  wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/HowToCompileInkscape07:03
lapotroy_s: I know how to compile stuff quite well :-)07:04
troy_swhat i was trying to hint is compile a current07:04
troy_slapo: It is pretty useless if we try to experiment with versions that are different07:05
lapoyeah, got it, but I'll try with the current one first, just for the pleasure of filling some bugs :-)07:05
troy_sgive me a few.07:06
troy_swhat is your jabber accnt lapo ?07:06

yharrow troy_s  going pretty good.08:55
yharrowwhats gimp gap?08:55
troy_sits a pretty powerful little animation plugin for the gimp08:56
troy_sdare i say _quite_ powerful08:56

troy_sall sorts of goodies.08:56
yharrowtroy_s: I think I ought to check it out :D08:56
yharrowsound like good fun08:56
troy_syeah... if you have an interest in animation it is pretty versatile really.08:56
yharrowIlove animation08:56
yharrowI did my stint with blender too08:56
troy_si just started toying with it... it is far more versatile than i orginally thought.08:56
yharrowtroy_s: I heard that you wanted to test out inkboard earlier09:02
troy_syeah i was going to.09:02
troy_skind of got run under at this point09:02

yharrownothlit: sweet11:26
yharrownothlit: can I use my google account for jabber?11:26
nothlityharrow: you can't use google servers11:26
troy_syharrow: Jabber is free -- just sign up11:28

troy_snothlit: We should all see if we can get -current running with Inkscape and provide them with a set of bug reports.11:28
yharrowone sec11:28
yharrownothlit: which jabber server do you use?11:30
troy_snothlit: -current meaning the head of SVN11:40
