[01:56:56] <asterick> I tried configuring Exult with the best of my ability. Now I feel like an idiot.
[01:58:17] <Matt_O> asterick: as do I
[01:59:54] <asterick> You tried and failed as well
[01:59:56] <asterick> ?
[02:00:09] <Matt_O> no
[02:00:10] <Fingolfin> no he just feels like an idiot? :-)
[02:00:12] <Fingolfin> sorry Matt_O :-)
[02:00:18] <Matt_O> exactly :)
[02:00:32] <Matt_O> asterick: UMR.edu ... is that in Rolla Missouri by chance?
[02:00:44] <asterick> Yep.
[02:00:49] <asterick> Why, you a student?
[02:01:09] <Matt_O> I have an uncle who teaches at the university.. or used to... and his family lives there (or used to, they've all grown up and moved away)
[02:01:22] <asterick> Ahh
[02:02:00] <Matt_O> when he comes to visit, he uses my computer and logs into his webmail at some umr.edu address.. hehe
[02:04:00] <Matt_O> haha.. that wasn't very nice
[02:04:22] <Fingolfin> hey, tit-for-tat :-)
[02:04:31] <Fingolfin> Matt_O: what did you expect, hm? :-)
[02:04:40] <Matt_O> I expected some free tech support!!
[02:04:42] <Matt_O> :)
[02:04:50] <asterick> heh
[02:04:54] <Fingolfin> for a Win32 version of Fink ???
[02:04:57] <Matt_O> "please where download fink!!!"
[02:04:59] <Fingolfin> I think I should kick you from here, too <g>
[02:05:09] <Matt_O> you can't do that.. I live here!
[02:05:19] <asterick> I need to figure out how to setup exult before I get on the bus tommarow. :/
[02:05:26] <Fingolfin> luckily, we don't have many problems like that currently :-) got good press, a new PR manager, 30,000 or more users and are happy :-)
[02:05:28] <asterick> I don't want to spend 1d 2h on a bus with nothing to do.
[02:05:32] <Matt_O> asterick: did you check Dominus's FAQ?
[02:05:33] <Fingolfin> Matt_O: I am no doing it :-)
[02:05:48] <Matt_O> 30,000 users?
[02:05:55] <Fingolfin> asterick: if you checked the FAQ and are still stuck, tell us what you are stuck with :-)
[02:06:01] <Fingolfin> Matt_O: based on our downloads etc.
[02:06:05] <Matt_O> impressive
[02:06:09] <Matt_O> how many users does exult have?
[02:06:17] <Fingolfin> dunno
[02:06:18] <asterick> Nope, didn't see it.
[02:06:18] <asterick> Got a URL?
[02:06:22] <Fingolfin> it's hard to measure...
[02:06:25] <Matt_O> http://exult.sf.net
[02:06:29] <Matt_O> the FAQ is linked from there
[02:06:33] <Fingolfin> and of course you never catch the users that use CVS versions of Exult/ScummVM/Fink/etc.
[02:06:57] <Matt_O> DAPHNE sends a little packet to my server each time someone runs it, so I know exactly how many users I have :)
[02:07:05] <Matt_O> well... not exactly... but I have a good approximation
[02:07:40] <Matt_O> and yes, I made everyone aware of this tracking feature, and added an option to disable it for this paranoid privacy freaks :)
[02:08:48] <Fingolfin> sur
[02:08:50] <Fingolfin> sure thing
[02:09:35] <Matt_O> 5049 users at the moment... so your 30,000 is very impressive from my POV :)
[02:09:36] <Fingolfin> https://sourceforge.net/project/stats/index.php?report=last_30&group_id=17203
[02:10:26] <Fingolfin> we have 2000 downloads/day (however, that doesn't necessarily mean 2000 users: the number does include the binary isntaller, but also some other support files that some users may download for other reasons)
[02:10:27] <Matt_O> nice
[02:10:57] <Fingolfin> note that scummvm is listed above fink in the SF.net stats, and if you look at the numbers... you wonder why :-)
[02:11:51] <Matt_O> because scummVM _rules_
[02:12:58] <asterick> too bad the zaurus port is buggy as all get out. :(
[02:16:38] <Fingolfin> it seems we had 36065 downloads of our previous release over a period of roughly a month

[04:52:48] <asterick> Anyone in here want to help me take a crack at getting exult working on my zaurus
[04:54:23] <asterick> as near as I can tell, it hates my PDA.
[04:54:36] <asterick> Doesn't even load the GUI (have Mixer and SDL installed, latest build)
