IRC logs of #boinc for Thursday, 2009-09-24

00:00 <PovAddict> do those users need the ribbon?

00:00 <efc> They aren't as intuitive but on a big document pretty much have to use them

00:00 <zombie67> "And, there's a reason why the people who tend to be excited by the idea of getting to specify things like typefaces and colors are generally not the same people who can write well and have interesting things to say."  -- Douglas Henke

00:00 <PovAddict> and does the ribbon make it more likely users will learn about Styles?

00:01 <PovAddict> zombie67: that's what TeX is about

00:01 <PovAddict> write your content, the software takes care of layout and formatting and readability

00:02 <zombie67> if you have good content, it will stand on its own

00:02 <zombie67> formatting is putting lipstick on a pig

00:03 *** jackygrahamez_ has left #boinc

00:03 <zombie67> I learned formatting rules in TYPING class, on a manual typewriter

00:03 <PovAddict> teX philosophy is that formatting and even typefaces *are* important, but the writer shouldn't waste a second thinking about them

00:03 <zombie67> anything beyond that is fluff

00:03 <zombie67> distracting from the content

00:05 <zombie67> and BTW, it is a double space after a "."  I am hearing that it is becoming acceptable for a single space.

00:06 <zombie67> it's like saying like a word like between like everything someone like says.

00:06 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

00:12 <efc> My new GUI will consist of hieroglyphs that constantly drift around and change sizes

00:13 <efc> In other news vi is switching to ribbons

00:15 <MTughan> CLI Ribbon?

00:18 <zombie67> I still use vi as my command line editor

00:18 <zombie67> going on 25 years now

00:46 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc

00:48 <zombie67> are you done formatting your test now?

00:48 <zombie67> text

01:00 <zombie67> Rules for dating my daughter

01:00 <zombie67> Rule Four:

01:00 <zombie67> I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you.  Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.

01:02 <zombie67> Rule Nine:

01:02 <zombie67> Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe.  If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.  I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.

01:03 <PovAddict> stupid internets

01:04 <PovAddict> heh

01:04 <PovAddict> maybe I should send that to my dad :P

01:07 <PovAddict> btw

01:07 <PovAddict> vi is not switching to ribbon

01:07 <PovAddict> but there is an unofficial version of vi with Clippy

01:09 <zombie67> little But little boys have action toys for brains,

01:09 <zombie67> I'm living proof it can last a long time
