what do you mean by slow? Like in any other language or thechnology anyone can write "slow" code, an infinite loop or a very heavy function that will waste systen resources, that doesn't mean that AVM is slow, look at one of my previous posts,

part of code from Flash AVM will  be used  to make JS in FireFox *faster*.

Well, most things load as slow as possible as far as I can tell, and flash takes up unessecary time.
I could've loaded the page 100 times over, and still had time left, and had everything the flash gave with ajax. I mean, some flash is good: http://nighttowers.com/ a canadian friend did that, and although good, I only use the lofi version. Its much faster and it gets me where I want, and I don't have unnessecary load times and transitions. I'm not there for the stunning graphics.

I'm there for the content.

Actually, I would love to help in punbb project, but honestly I have about an hour of free time a day...

But this reflects programming quite accurately...

"I would like an application to manage my company and I would like you to create an idea of what you'll do" is very typical.

If you're talking about web 2.0, I'm sorry to disappoint you.

Web 2.0 is developed by people on linux, which, although 'compatible' with flash, (and some people on 64 bit, you know, like me) doesn't really hang to tight with it. Noooo, god no. Flash is also far slower than ajax and javascript and java and even php(!!)

I can't use flash if I want to, and frankly, I don't care, because if I can't right click on a link and control where I want it to open and see what I'm clicking and be able to save the page and bookmark it and stuff, I don't care.

I don't want to have loading times, I don't want noscript saying "BLOCKED SCRIPTS" on every page, I don't want sites where all the content is in flash and I have to wait for the 'pretty transitions' to come into play to see my goddamn content!

No, my site is simple xhtml and css. :s

but, AUGH, is there any kind of timetable 3.0 will be out? I knoooow its when it is, but O.O

The whole Textpattern Community is waiting for punbb and the alleged super extension uber thing to even think about integration! Quite frankly, I'm kind of mad at both of the communities, punbb arbitrarily for not working faster (said the ultimate lazy coder) and at the txp people for not coming up with anything. :< (They don't ever come up with easy vanilla integrations, and they make up incredibly faulty tutorials unlike me who runs his server as root)

Eh I switched Ubuntu to my main OS.

I'm using Edgy 64 bit now, and my new graphics card pwns.

I had to reinstall the OS when I switched cards, (and I got that ATI working beautifully, btw), but I didn't have much on it.

64 is nice and all, but nothing seems to run on it, qemu and flash player don't sad

I love synaptic package manager, its like the most wonderful tool invented, as I don't have to think :s Anyways.

scary... in 3 hours on my personal made up time and 11 minutes its 13:37 here....

I think it can be configured to use both, but I think it is default on Lilo.
I have grub installed courtesy of ubuntu on my computer, seeing as lilo breaks everything for me.... 'Chainloader' never does a damn thing...

I support google definately. Most people have no idea how much they're doing.

Google search itself has: video, music, web, images, maps, code, desktop, earth, Picasa, sketch up, calendar, Gmail, and a ton load more.
Google owns Blogger
Google owns YouTube now.

There is rumours of google developing a browser (and some even of an operating system!)

Google's slogan is: "Don't be evil." I didn't believe it for the longest time... <_<

Anyways Google is going to completely pwn microsoft and I'm going to like it even if everyone else won't admit to liking it. big_smile

just say OSS for FOSS in the future to avoid that...

I don't have php5 yet, so I stick with mysql. Really, I think it is a matter of choice in alot of cases.

reminds me of the if x made toasters: http://monster-island.org/tinashumor/humor/toaster.html
and of the very similar other thing.. I can't find it though sad
btw I found this on there dated 1991 <_<

Subject:VI manual pages

A few days ago, we were trying to explain to a MS-DOS user how the VI editor works. Here's what we come up with:

Vi is an editor with two distinguished modes:

In Edit mode you have all the capabilities of grandma's typewriter right under your finger tips! You can make the very same mistakes as you did with grany's typewriter (and your possibilities to correct them are about the same).

That's why Vi was provided with a second mode, namely the Beep mode. On a vt100 terminal or compatible you can get into Beep mode by pressing an arrow or escape function key. In this powerful Beep mode even the more inocuos keystroke will promptly produce a Beep sound. As an example, arrows, return, blankspaces and most capital letters will produce beeps in the most arbitrary places of the screen. Just think about the whole world of possibilities that this mode gives to you:

    * Compose a monotonic symphony or rap while editing your thesis!

    * Send messages in morse code to the secretary next door!

    * Keep yourself awake with the clear sound of the Beep tone!

The possibilities are up to you!

and lol, here is the best one ever written in my opinion (it may offend some people, so discression...)

I've switched completely away from windows.
I have a second harddrive partitioned (using logical volumes) to about 8 partitions, each a different linux OS.

I have 2 installs of ubuntu, and although nice, I'd say my favorite Linux distro is Opensuse.
I've used all of the following:
Fedora Core 3 (I have 6 but I'm lazy to install)
OpenSuse 10.1
Ubuntu (warty and dapper both)
slax (live)
and blah some more...

Suse is really complete, and I love the KDE interface default on it, (which is in kubuntu obviously too but just saying), and YaST is useful up to most extents.

I'm not sure why all the hype about ubuntu, its loads of fun being fast and stuff, but, DSL is way faster, and although tiny, I mean, come on, it does everything! (I have it on my usb stick. and mac OS7 too)

I use FC3 for my server, which runs fine, but the graphics card support is horrible!
Same for ubuntu, the graphics support for ATI (lawl shutup) is horrible too. I can't get higher than 640x

I'm sure you overly enthused about this!

Here is a link...

its a normal installation with a view plugins I suppose...

Anyways, its a merge between my IPB-->phpbb elelle2 forums + my Purple Sky Studios Forums and I'm about to merge another one of my inactive forums with it, APDLOCAOIE, which is short for:

Association of People Dedicated to Learning Of Completely Annoying Offending Internet Entities, which I founded slightly after a load of people demoted me from admin --> banned on their illegal IPB forums and I hacked their site. (Don't worry I restored it for them)

I really wish I could integrate it easily with textpattern sad

But yeah.

Its verrrrry relevant, because the United States thinks it owns the internets.

I liked the announcement by Bush that you "can't annoy people online without disclosing your identity" and other such nonsense.

On my site I just say "Licensed under Creative Commons Licence" or something close to that and its a link yikes
