Ah, a nicer job!

I find myself thanking you again, phitsc smiley  Thanks!

Nice find  Thmbsup

After a short wait:


For emacs users, try qemacs at the prompt...and be sure to view the hello.c file in /root/ via qemacs.

Thanks to phitsc for the reminder smiley

Trying to go for something recursive here...

The following is turning out to be helpful (though I've heard that divergence with the current state of the language is growing):

A peripheral SmartGit remark:

It does miss some other important ones though, like “blame”, “stash”, “clone –bare” (last one : surprising, to say the least… Unless I missed something).

FWIW, it looks like there is some kind of stash support (at least in the 2.x series):

May be the author of the following post has some relevant ideas:

Still making my first pass through Mastering Git Basics (Erlang Factory SF Bay Area 2010 Talks), but am finding the alternating slides of "git command with brief example(s)" followed by a corresponding summary picture slide, to be a nice idea.

Thanks to phitsc for the ACCU 2011 mentioning where I first learned about a version of this talk smiley

P.S. The ACCU version of the talk seems to be longer and gets further along in the slides.

Everytime I've seen video done in Silverlight it's been far superior to anything in Flash by a wide margin.
Started watching a talk recently via Silverlight.  It did seem nicer than many Flash-based experiences.

May be not quite what's being sought after...but there's some possibly related bits in Crockford on JavaScript — Scene 6: Loopage starting at about 00:31:36 (Remote Procedure Call slide) to may be 00:33:29 (Latency Compensation slide).

Slides available via:

About a year later...

The article that makes git click for me was http://www.newartisans.co...t-from-the-bottom-up.html .
I'm revisiting a PDF version of the article and finding it helpful  Thmbsup

Nice  Thmbsup
1539  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: Podcasts of ACCU 2011 conference on: May 16, 2011, 05:12:25 PM
Thanks for sharing this smiley

BTW, it looks like some of the talks mentioned at:


don't look to have links pointing to pages with presentation videos (at least some how they don't seem to show up here under IE8 and FF4):


Searching on Google for some of the titles does turn up some pages with links to video.  Inspection of the HTML revealed that the links are there.  Odd that they don't appear to show up here.

Anyway, with a bit of work it appears some more videos can be gotten at...though it does look like at least one talk has yet to be made available.

P.S. The following link leads to descriptions of talks and occasional links to slides:

If version control system selection is on the horizon, may be some of the following discussion will be of some interest:

1541  DonationCoder.com Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA : Voice Changing Application {VCA} on: May 15, 2011, 01:12:24 AM
I don't know how Google Voice Search works, but if it requires that my own utterings get sent to Google, I might feel more comfortable having some kind of transformation/changing happen to such data before it gets sent on to them.

Don't you find the ensuing screenful of cat pictures faintly annoying?   Wink
1543  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Invoking FARR via Speech Recognition on: May 14, 2011, 03:07:15 AM
Inspired by recent VoicePics activity, gave bringing up FARR's window a try via AHK.

Apart from ensuring appropriate speech recognition is installed (SAPI 5.1 here), this approach comes down to customizing code posted at the top of:

  Voice Recognition COM

The modifications made include:

  • Ensuring the appropriate COM.ahk file is available
  • Choosing the word to be recognized
  • Arranging for an appropriate hotkey to be sent upon recognition
Now saying "Mouser" within earshot of an appropriate microphone may show or hide FARR's main window here smiley
1544  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: May 14, 2011, 02:36:14 AM
it seems to be updating hourly even after a hibernation, right?
I believe so.  Took screenshots of sWeather's main window once an hour four times, and they all showed different info.
1545  DonationCoder.com Software / Skwire Empire / Re: Release: sWeather (tray-based weather app) on: May 13, 2011, 09:22:13 PM
AFAICT, seems to be working fine here...at least I have not seen the NA icon in some time.
1546  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: email troubles on: May 12, 2011, 11:10:34 PM
If there is no SSL involved, perhaps you might get some further details by running the likes of Wireshark or SmartSniff to capture the network traffic for closer inspection.
1547  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: DVCS ? on: May 12, 2011, 08:39:18 PM
There's also the MQ extension (Mercurial Queue). I remember liking MQ a lot.
This looked interesting to me, but I never tried it out.  Perhaps some day...

I don't have the time to discuss that in depth, but I also remember that I found it easier to work with the "index" like features in Git using the GUI (Git GUI), than with Mercurial (Tortoise Hg). Things are changing fast though and I'll revisit tortoise Hg in a while to see how it does this whole "partial commit" thing.
Looking forward to nicer UIs smiley

Perhaps I'll try out gitsum for Emacs in the mean time:


BTW, any thoughts on the likes of:

I don't know if it's related but I noticed that my own posts show up under "Show new replies to your posts".  I don't remember it being this way before...but then my memory isn't the most reliable thing in the world smiley

Thanks for adding this  Thmbsup

I really appreciate being able to adjust the auto fade interval.

1.0.8 build 2 definitely feels nicer  Thmbsup

I'm puzzled though -- by the time the resuming from hibernation is complete and I can see the icons, they already seem to be updated.  Perhaps 15 or more seconds have already passed by that time...As I recall it, for previous builds, I'd often see an NA icon.  May be more observation / timing is in order on my end.

At any rate, thanks!

P.S. Perhaps the way I use PCs is a bit odd -- I've been putting them in to hibernation when I leave my seat and I don't have some ongoing network activity.  Resuming is something that typically occurs more than a couple times a day...
