[03:02:29] <artaxerxes> hiya
[03:15:00] <Darke> Hi.
[03:18:35] <artaxerxes> pretty calm in here
[03:18:55] <artaxerxes> nice feature request you have there on P.
[03:19:08] <artaxerxes> :)
[03:19:49] * Darke 's official stance is: "Blame Colourless." *grin*
[03:20:33] <artaxerxes> ;)
[03:27:31] * artaxerxes is going to play HOMM3... see you later!

[06:13:28] <SB-X> Hi.

[06:13:57] <SB-X> :S
[06:27:32] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("casts invisibility")
[06:27:38] <SB-X> :(
[06:27:52] <Darke> Gu!
[06:30:19] * Darke boggles as he watches emerge download seemingly every xmms theme in existance. Next time he's going to _check_ what such a potentially broad package description (such as 'xmms-themes') contains before he decides to emerge it. *grin*
[06:30:22] <SB-X> :|
[06:30:33] <SB-X> :)
[06:30:42] <SB-X> I only have a couple of themes
[06:30:49] <SB-X> skins
[06:30:57] <SB-X> UltrafinaSEM is all you need
[06:31:12] * Darke now has about 125.
[06:31:19] <SB-X> nu
[06:31:24] * SB-X tsks.
[06:31:36] <Darke> Actually, no, closer to 100.
[06:31:56] <Darke> (Not that _that_ sort of difference is much considering he only wanted 'half a dozen' to look at. *grin*)
[06:32:52] <SB-X> Well, now you'll have a dozen dozen. :)
[06:33:07] <Darke> Not quite, but close enough. *grin*
[06:33:22] <SB-X> Is it done emerging?
[06:33:43] <Darke> Yeah, I'm looking through them at the moment.
[06:36:39] * Darke considers most of these skins are more 'cool looking' then actually practically usable for a long period of time.
[06:37:26] * Darke trips over the 'Detonation' skin, he used to use that way back when he first used xmms under SuSE. *grin*
[06:40:07] <SB-X> Yes I can't use most skins for very long. Same goes for window manager styles. But a while ago I finally found what I've stayed with for a while. SimpleElegance Blackbox style, and UltrafinaSEM for XMMS. :-)
[06:40:14] * Darke doesn't like the ones with 'transparent' backgrounds. Almost impossible to move.
[06:40:35] <SB-X> How do you get transparency? Is it a compile option?
[06:41:03] <Darke> No idea. Only some of the skins have it.
[06:41:16] <Darke> Such as 'Ghost'.
[06:42:41] <Darke> And 'm2n'.
[06:42:54] <Darke> If you want to see a processor spike, try dragging them around the desktop. *grin*
[06:44:16] <Darke> 'Sinistar' also has bits removed. It's not 'real' transparency, just that you can see parts of the desktop through the originally 'square' window. *grin*
[06:47:25] * Darke thinks 'Cherry' or 'maXMMS' are more his theme. Generally dark, with a good contrast between "bits that don't do anything" and "bits that do". *grin*
[06:49:50] <SB-X> is it trans?
[06:51:48] <Darke> Nope.
[06:52:57] <SB-X> i don't see transparency in the configure.in for xmms
[06:54:24] <Darke> http://www.xmms.org/comments.html?show=S79 (m2n)
[06:55:09] <Darke> Must be a gnome/gtk setting.
[06:57:10] * Darke turns on the Infinity visualisation.
[06:57:48] * Darke watches his process utilisation by xmms hit 85% and X take up 12%. Umm... how about 'no'?
[07:00:16] <Darke> Hmm... is 3000fps with glxgears good?
[07:02:38] * Darke hmms... even the simple opengl spectrum analyzer is chewing up all the cpu. Methinks he's got something set wrong somewhere...
[07:13:23] <SB-X> I don't think I've ever had 3000fps with even glxgears. :)
[07:18:02] * Darke is sitting here with an el-cheepo GF2/64Meg. Really, it shouldn't be chewing up the cpu _that_ much for such a seemingly simple opengl app. *grin*
[07:18:18] <SB-X> i just now got 42.6-58.9FPS in 25seconds
[07:34:20] <SB-X> thanks for the link
[07:34:25] <SB-X> i'll try gnome-conf
[07:34:31] <SB-X> ig
[07:34:56] <SB-X> actually i probably have to have xmms compiled with gnome support too, not sure if it is now
[07:35:59] <SB-X> s/gnome-config/gnomecc/
[07:40:14] * Darke is pretty sure you have since xmms uses all those butt-ugly gnome widgets for it's 'normal' menus. He wishes the skins effected those too. *grin*

[13:36:38] <artaxerxes|zombi> hi all
[13:36:48] <Colourless> hi
[13:36:51] --- artaxerxes|zombi is now known as artaxerxes
[13:37:01] <artaxerxes> what's wrong with the forum?
[13:37:24] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to artaxerxes
[13:37:29] * Colourless looks
[13:37:57] <Colourless> trick question: nothing is wrong
[13:38:45] <artaxerxes> .... I just tried a minute ago and it looked like the database was emptied of messages and now it's back to normal
[13:38:52] * artaxerxes slaps his IE
[13:41:10] * artaxerxes 's IE just crashed in return... :(
[13:44:13] <Darke> That's happened a couple of times today for me, FYI.
[13:44:21] <Darke> (not the crashing IE bit...)
[13:44:23] <Colourless> probably souceforge
[13:44:33] <artaxerxes> I _do_ think there is a pb somewhere... just got a "mysql" error
[13:44:52] <Darke> And it just loaded up perfectly for me. *Grin*
[13:44:59] <Darke> There's obviously something wrong somewhere.
[13:45:00] <artaxerxes> saying something wasn't a valid resource or whatever
[13:45:44] <artaxerxes> as if their MySQL database was HIGHLY loaded or something.
[13:46:00] <artaxerxes> or part of the transition to Oracle!
[13:47:03] <Darke> Nah. They're already using some IBM database for their thing, IIRC. The mysql databases are for use by the projects that need them. *grin*

[14:30:16] <Dominus> hi
[15:19:38] <-- Kirben has left IRC ("System Meltdown")
[15:36:18] <Dominus> Darke, artaxerxes any idea for the latest problem in the forum?
[15:37:00] <Darke> I've had rather itermittent luck with getting to the forum. The 'music not working' one?
[15:37:39] <artaxerxes> I'd think it
[15:37:43] <Dominus> yep
[15:37:44] <artaxerxes> I'd think it's db related
[15:38:11] <artaxerxes> ah sorry.. I thought you meant accessing the forum!
[15:38:22] <Dominus> he he
[15:39:33] <artaxerxes> no clue to be honest
[15:43:24] * Darke neither. But he's not in the most coherent mind at the moment, since he should have been asleep at least an hour and a half ago. *grin*

[16:15:25] --> GNUChild has joined #exult
[17:25:34] <Dominus> I think Jeff is right and we *really* should do a release
[17:26:31] <artaxerxes> btw, the post about the mouse pb could be related to the fact the mouse.cc and mouse.h were modified not long ago... could be
[17:27:51] <Dominus> wasn't that just 1.1.x?
[17:30:05] <artaxerxes> dunno
[17:34:23] <Dominus> yeah, just 1.1.x
[17:35:32] <Dominus> just got a reply in the dragons newsgroup and yes, driver issue.
[17:35:38] * artaxerxes is preparing an updated package for Zaurus
[17:35:44] <artaxerxes> good
