[00:43:44] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[01:33:51] --> SB-X has joined #nuvie
[01:39:57] <Yuv422> hello
[01:40:35] <SB-X> heya
[01:41:01] <SB-X> were you having irc problems yesterday?
[01:41:16] <Yuv422> hehe nah I just wasn't watching my irc window
[01:41:18] <Yuv422> sorry
[01:45:56] <Yuv422> I'm trying to compile tvision for unix but they have it set to error on any warnings
[01:46:24] <Yuv422> and the new gcc that ships with os x like to warn about things. ;)
[01:49:42] <SB-X> np
[01:49:49] <SB-X> I wasn't watching my IRC window just now...
[01:49:55] <SB-X> what's tvision?
[01:50:26] <Yuv422> http://tvision.sourceforge.net/
[01:53:37] <Yuv422> hmm it doesn't compile easily on OS X. :(
[01:53:53] <SB-X> ah
[01:53:58] <SB-X> that's too bad
[01:54:04] <SB-X> you could make a port for them :)
[01:54:10] <Yuv422> tries an older versio of gcc
[01:54:18] <Yuv422> whoops +/msg
[01:54:25] <SB-X> what's CUA?
[01:54:32] <Yuv422> CUA?
[01:55:04] <SB-X> I know what they're talking about but I don't know that term. "Turbo Vision (TVision for short) is a TUI (Text User Interface) that implements the well known CUA widgets."
[01:55:27] <Yuv422> have you seen the screenshots?
[01:55:42] <SB-X> yup :)
[01:58:11] <Yuv422> you know what the problem is
[01:58:24] <Yuv422> this guy has used his own configure script
[01:58:34] <Yuv422> I don't know why people bother
[01:58:36] <SB-X> I started to make an interface library like that once, but it didn't conform to any popular standard.
[01:58:42] <SB-X> hehe
[01:58:53] <SB-X> they don't like autoconf?
[01:58:53] <Yuv422> ./gnu autoconf might be bloated but it does work on most platforms
[01:59:03] <Yuv422> nope
[01:59:14] <SB-X> yeah I guess, there is a reason for it after all
[02:00:58] <SB-X> I have no problem with autoconf. (automake is a little more confusing since I havn't tried learning it beyond the basics)
[02:02:40] <Yuv422> is your computer all reinstalled now?
[02:03:53] <SB-X> well
[02:03:59] <SB-X> mostly
[02:04:29] <SB-X> I've been restoring files when I need them.
[02:04:54] <SB-X> copying back where they belong... beyond that I've just left a lot of things uninstalled :)
[02:06:04] <Yuv422> :)
[02:06:23] <SB-X> did you know about SourceForge RSS?
[02:06:35] <SB-X> for projects
[02:07:40] <Yuv422> no
[02:07:43] <SB-X> I didn't know it was so convenient to save an xml RSS feed as a Live Bookmark in Firefox. I just found out about this the other day! Now I notice whenever the RSS icon shows up in Firefox's status bar.
[02:07:55] <SB-X> ah
[02:08:36] <SB-X> I thought you'd know because the Apple site uses it too so OSX users must have been using it for a while now.
[02:09:11] <SB-X> too bad it doesn't have anything for our project, because we don't use the project page to post news
[02:09:22] <SB-X> one for the bugtracker would be helpful
[02:09:53] <Yuv422> oh I know about rss just not the sf feed
[02:09:55] <Yuv422> +s
[02:10:35] <SB-X> ah k
[02:11:27] <Yuv422> safari doesn't seem to like sf's rss style
[02:12:10] <Yuv422> be back in a bit
[02:12:16] <SB-X> I'd heard of RSS but never knew it would be helpful to me until clicking the icon in Firefox.
[02:12:20] <SB-X> ok
[02:42:15] <Yuv422> hmm
[02:42:28] <Yuv422> looks like it might complie better with the cvs version
[02:48:33] <SB-X> sb
[02:48:36] <SB-X> wb*
[02:48:43] <SB-X> you're talking about safari?
[02:49:08] <Yuv422> tvision
[02:49:53] <SB-X> oh, might compile better
[02:50:13] <Yuv422> whoops
[02:50:17] <SB-X> thought you were saying comply
[02:50:52] <SB-X> for some reason
[02:55:18] <Yuv422> yay it compiles
[02:56:25] <SB-X> nice
[02:56:28] <SB-X> what are you using it for?
[02:57:39] <Yuv422> I was thinking about porting the dosbox debugger to tvision
[02:57:52] <Yuv422> so you could see more code and data at one time
[02:58:02] <Yuv422> if it doesn't take to much effort that is
[03:12:02] <Yuv422> brb
[04:08:53] <Yuv422> I'm going out for a bit
[04:08:55] <Yuv422> cya
