bluebomber:P05:36
govatenthttp://planetlinuxcaffe.com/05:37
govatentthe owner is a very deep *nix lover 05:37
maxolasersquad_h.swf --05:38
bluebomberWow. Creative menu item names.05:38
bluebomber:)05:39
govatentlol05:39
govatentgive them some love 05:39
bluebomberI would if I could. They don't have a store link.05:39
bluebomberBy the way, O'Reilly gave me a free ebook today for emailing them. They're a pretty classy outfit, speaking of giving love to companies.05:40
maxolasersquad_hI purchase all my tech books from O'Reilly.05:40
bluebomberDitto. And up until now they've been physical. O'Reilly's web store lets you register your physical books and upgrade to eBooks at a deep discount. Right now it only costs $5.05:41
maxolasersquad_hYou should tell them to build their website on open technologies.05:41
bluebomberUpgrade to DRM-free eBooks in 5+ formats*05:41
maxolasersquad_hYeah, I only by DRM free e-books now for my tech stuffs.05:41
bluebombermaxh: Linux cafe or O'Reilly?05:42
maxolasersquad_hLinux Cafe05:42
govatentlol05:42
bluebomberYeah, and the kicker is that it appears that only the first page is flash...05:43
bluebomber:-/05:43
bluebomberMaybe you can show your love by designing them a better website in X/HTML5, govatent. You'd only need about ten minutes.05:44
govatentif i knew how to code 05:44
govatenti would do it05:44
bluebomberYou mean HTML isn't included among the 1042 languages you know?05:45
govatentlol05:45
bluebomberWould this kind of project be a suitable subject for a codejam?05:45
maxolasersquad_hgovatent: Just use Microsoft Visual Studio dude.05:45
bluebomberI've never been to one of those.05:46
bluebomberlol@ maxh 05:46
maxolasersquad_hIf you could just get the image he is using (or just use a screenshot, it would be pretty easy to replace in HTML.05:46
bluebomber"Yeah, hey, Linux dudes, get away from proprietary stuff. Use Microsoft software instead."05:47
govatent:P05:47
bluebomberI'm pretty proficient in HTML, but not the HTML5-specific additions.05:47
bluebomberI'm eager to learn them, though.05:47
maxolasersquad_hLots of it is pretty simple, the HTML part of HTML5 stuffs.05:47
bluebomberAlso, I'll leave this here: http://mnachtig.blog.usf.edu/?p=30605:47
maxolasersquad_hhttp://www.html5rocks.com/en/ is a good starting place.05:48
govatentbluebomber, sweet!05:48
bluebomberI think I'm more excited about CSS3 than X/HTML5, to be honest.05:48
bluebomberBut that may just be the designer in me speaking.05:48
govatentoh i went to a raving club microsoft event last night on south beach. omg..that was the saddest event i have ever been to. 05:49
maxolasersquad_hThere's some cool stuff like <input type="email">05:49
maxolasersquad_hWhich is dead simple, but brings lots of love to people on mobile devices.05:50
bluebombermaxh: I....... see...... ugggggggh, that just reeks of custom tag nonsense.05:51
maxolasersquad_hAnd datalists make autocompletion easy.  Though some cool stuff like that still isn't getting any support.05:51
bluebomberBUT, I'm not going to form a judgment just yet.05:51
bluebomberI need to learn more about all the additions.05:51
maxolasersquad_hIt's not a custom tag, it's a standard input type that hints to the browser to act accordingly, saving one from all sorts of Javascript ugliness.05:51
bluebomberIt isn't a custom tag, but that example, along with many of the frequently touted new element types, remind me of them.05:52
bluebomberNevertheless, that slideshow was pretty amazing.05:52
bluebomberWell, whoa.05:53
maxolasersquad_hThe real fun is in the new Javascript and client-side abilities.05:53
bluebomberWait, I guess I was assuming that was all HTML5.05:53
govatentguys, its been a long day. i am going to pass out 05:53
bluebomberThat still has a bunch of Javascript. BTW, why do we not call it ECMAscript?05:54
govatentill catch up with everyone later05:54
maxolasersquad_hgovatent: About to do the same when I get done reading https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide/Python05:54
bluebomberG'night gov'nah, err, govatent.05:54
bluebomber:)05:54
govatentlol. night everyone 05:54
govatenthave fun maxolasersquad_h :)05:54
maxolasersquad_hA'ight, I'm off to bed too.  Y'alls take it easy.05:57
