Developer's Corner / Copy/pasting code and the last line effect
« on: December 03, 2015, 03:05 PM »
I just copy/pasted some (test) code. But never you worry, I'll pay extra attention that the last one of the pasted lines is correct ;)

Read this article today about what the author calls the last line effect.

On you can buy custom Cherry MX keycap sets. You can even create your own layout. I would assume that they have the VIM layout as a custom layout.

I usually turn to to create / test regexes.

Thanks mouser. We were playing for like an hour and still not finished. I guess the main reason being that we still always need to read all the cards because we're not playing that often.

Thanks hamradio for the testing :Thmbsup:

DeVamp, you can try with vers. 0.19 and use hamradio's regex, but use <\1lane\2> as replacement text. Then compare the output with what WildGem gives you and tell me if it's the same ;D.

\1 will be replaced with what's captured for the first group (defined by the () in the regex), \2 by what's in the second group, etc.

Still glad someone finds TIMU useful! :Thmbsup:

Concerning summoner wars:

How long should a typical game take? What do you do when you've taken up all the cards of your draw pile?

I'm afraid that is not currently possible. Shouldn't be too hard to add though. Stay tuned...

Communications of the ACM had an interesting article titled 'Bitcoin: Under the Hood' a while back. I found it a very worthwhile read (I knew basically nothing about how Bitcoins work). I'm afraid I can't post it here but you can find it like so (as a pdf):

'bitcoint under the hood Aviv Zohar'

Does that mean by posting that address above you can now no longer do private transactions? or does one usually own multiple addresses? or is there such a thing as private and public addresses?

Concerning addresses: as long as I write down my address (or addresses) somewhere, I can always get back my bitcoins? (even if the machine 'hosting' my wallet dies)
Does one usually install multiple wallets on different machines/devices, all working with the same address? Is it possible to manage / work with multiple addresses using the same wallet?

I can't remember having to choose one of them. I've installed the Gnome distribution. I guess that comes with systemd?

Just tried to install the latest Manjaro release from the 26th of October. Noticed that one of the installers it comes with (Calamares) was updated. And guess what: the installation worked!!!

I can now dual-boot Windows and Manjaro using UEFI with secure boot disabled. Manjaro sometimes reboots when starting up, but will then run the second time it boots.

Interestingly enough, it is, after all, actually booting Windows. I first get presented a screen with a big lock icon, telling me about some Secure Boot problem. But when I then press Enter, I get some kind of message box where I can press Enter again, and Windows will then boot :huh: I don't currently see what is particularly secure about that. In this case, I do not complain though. I could try to restore it, but I'm really not keen on re-installing everything, having spent so much time trying to dual-boot it with Manjaro already.

That all sound like good ideas. I was thinking about a timu reboot for this years NANY. What I had in mind was making it a cross-platform application. Probably command line to begin with and adding back the GUI after that. Would also like to add proper tests this time.

FWIW, I try not to dual/multi-boot these days -- swapping out the storage media seems to work better (though physically more work).  May be that's not so practical for your case...

Good luck in any case.
I'm afraid it isn't. I'm not the only one using the machine.

I have just destroyed my Windows Secure Boot installation following various guides for installing Manjaro with UEFI. And it still doesn't work. >:(

Being a nerd just sucks sometimes.

Thanks ewemoa for the feedback. Very much appreciated!

Looks like installation might be a bit more complicated than I had hoped.

Non-Windows Software / Manjaro and UEFI
« on: October 18, 2015, 03:06 PM »
I have a last-year Windows 8 Laptop which I'd like to dual-boot with Manjaro. While installing and dual-booting Linux Mint 17.2 (with UEFI, using GRUB, secure boot disabled) works flawlessly using Linux Mint's installer, the same is not true for Manjaro 15.09. This guide (which I have not followed) mentions that UEFI support is also provided in the Graphical Installer. This doesn't seem to be the case though, at least in my case. Anyone have an idea why that is?

Manjaro comes with two GUI and one CLI installers. I have tried both GUI installers with the same (negative) result.

Hi CWagner. Good to know that there are people who still use this plugin. Even better if it makes them switch to FARR :)

No, I don't think what you want is currently possible. I'll have a look at how much effort it would be to add it.

Developer's Corner / Re: Resources for learning git?
« on: October 01, 2015, 02:06 PM »
I can recommend this talk for git users beyond the basics who want to learn about some more advanced (well, not too advanced) git stuff. It's very concise; only half an hour.

Any recommendations for a simple, easy to install, secure web shop? Would be for something 'hard', i.e. no software, something to send out to people.

I think I could easily add this to my Text Inspection & Manipulation Utility. That is a Windows desktop application though.

Thanks for the reply Deozaan. Although I'm not trying to protect any state secrets I didn't have a good feeling using it, maybe for the reasons you state. I am experimenting with Syncthing now.

We've been playing this non-stop, it's become one of my favorite board games.
How did your daughter like it?  Remember that some of the factions are definitely harder to play than others -- so help her to avoid the crazy ones.

She liked it very much I think. She played the Tundra Orcs and I the Phoenix Elves. That's all we've got at the moment.
