18:24 <dizzie> Hey !

18:24 <PovAddict> hiya dizzie

18:24 <dizzie> Been a while, what i miss? :)

18:25 <PovAddict> not much... I think this channel is getting quieter over the months/years

18:25 <dizzie> Better that way, hehe some of the distrochannels is insanely spammy :)

18:27 * CoderForLife hears a lot of noise

18:27 <CoderForLife> what's with the racket?

18:27 <dizzie> Hey CFL !

18:27 <CoderForLife> heya diz =)

18:27 <dizzie> How are you ? :)

18:28 <CoderForLife> not so good - had a funeral to go to today

18:28 <CoderForLife> pretty sad ATN

18:28 <CoderForLife> er atm

18:28 <dizzie> Ugh :( i'm sorry to hear about your loss :(

18:29 <CoderForLife> yeah - my sister, 5 years younger - pretty tough emotional stuff - thanks

18:30 <dizzie> I can imagine :( i'm so sorry

18:31 <CoderForLife> but - life goes on for the rest of us, and we're expected to carry on

18:31 <dizzie> Indeed we are

18:32 <CoderForLife> what have you been up to?

18:33 <dizzie> Living in New york the last 3 months :P Going back to lil Denmark the 1st of March :) Hehe i cant wait, i miss moms cooking lol

18:33 <CoderForLife> heh

18:33 <dizzie> Oh and i learned c++/C# too lol

18:34 <CoderForLife> excellent - C is my native language, English second

18:34 <dizzie> combined with python, its not bad, and compiling is so easier that way

18:35 <dizzie> I like C (Ansi C) but this cpp is wicked stuff, i like it

18:35 <CoderForLife> I'm working on mobile development using Appcelerator Titanium

18:36 <dizzie> When my contract ends and i have to go back i have been working for a realestate company for 6 months, will look good on my resume hehe

18:36 <CoderForLife> yes

18:36 <dizzie> Not that i sold houses lol, was more doing "it-monkey" stuff

18:37 <CoderForLife> working for Trump, huh?

18:37 <dizzie> No no, a small place no in Maesena

18:37 <dizzie> nerf my spelling lol

18:38 <CoderForLife> now *THAT* would look really goo on a resume =)

18:38 <CoderForLife> lol

18:38 <CoderForLife> good

18:38 <dizzie> I hate the NYC winter hehe, its too cold

18:39 <CoderForLife> You're from Denmark, and you complain about cold?

18:39 <dizzie> Its not that cold over here lol

18:39 <CoderForLife> heh

18:39 <dizzie> 5-10F is the coldest hehe

18:42 <CoderForLife> brb  -- beverage required

18:42 <dizzie> Ok, hurry back

18:46 <CoderForLife> b

18:48 <CoderForLife> if I were to support use of an app in Scandinavian countries, what languages should I support?  what are the most prevalent smartphone platforms - does Nokia rule?

18:49 <CoderForLife> Or is the Android invasion underway?

18:50 <dizzie> IOS, Android, Symbian (in that order)

18:50 <CoderForLife> cool

18:51 <CoderForLife> vat langooages?

18:51 <dizzie> i got a HTC Legend with Android 2.3 :)

18:51 <CoderForLife> Ingleesh?

18:51 <dizzie> Android is the OS on the phone

18:52 <CoderForLife> right

18:52 <CoderForLife> Android is speaking English?

18:52 <dizzie> Yes

18:52 <dizzie> Its a google thing

18:52 <dizzie> developer IDEs are free

18:53 <CoderForLife> is there any advantage to Danish apps?

18:53 <dizzie> Not at all

18:53 <dizzie> My phone is english

18:53 <dizzie> i never run any OS/computer/box/phone/etc in Danish

18:54 <CoderForLife> OK - thanks

18:55 <dizzie> The Android SDKs are huge though

18:55 <CoderForLife> I'll do Latin American Spanish for Pov and folks around there

18:55 <dizzie> 140mb or so i think

18:55 <CoderForLife> I'm using Titanium

18:55 <CoderForLife> doing parallel builds for Android and iPhone

18:55 <PovAddict> I can tell you something about languages:

18:56 <PovAddict> English is highly preferred to GoogleTranslate'd Spanish

18:56 <CoderForLife> BlackBerry support is in beta - out soon

18:56 <CoderForLife> doubtless, PovAddict

18:56 <PovAddict> I have seen apps in both Facebook and iPhone AppStore with descriptions and/or UI that looked clearly autotranslated

18:56 <CoderForLife> I'd actually look for help from a native to be sure I get it right

18:57 * CoderForLife gives PovAddict a sideways glance

18:57 <dizzie> Lazy ass developers who have the curtesey to ask someone to translate it

18:57 <dizzie> who don't

18:57 <CoderForLife> I'm externalizing all the i18n support

18:59 <dizzie> lol, i didn't know this :

18:59 <PovAddict> note that, while English > machine-translated Spanish is a universal fact, the value of having a translated app may differ across countries

18:59 <dizzie> 00:56 < dpkg> Debian releases have always been named after characters from the movie "Toy Story".  Buzz(1.1; 1996-03-14), Rex(1.2; 1996-10-28), Bo(1.3;  1997-05-01), Hamm(2.0; 1998-07-24), Slink(2.1; 1999-03-09), Potato(2.2; 2000-08-15), Woody(3.0; 2002-07-19), Sarge(3.1; 2005-06-06), Etch(4.0;

18:59 <dizzie> 2007-04-08), Lenny(5.0; 209-02-14), Squeeze(6.0; 2011-02-06).  The next release will be Wheezy.  See aleso  http://www.debian.org/doc/FAQ/ch-ftparc

18:59 <dizzie> Named releases after a movie :P

19:00 <CoderForLife> yeah dizzie

19:00 <PovAddict> I think Spain peeps prefer seeing stuff in Spanish

19:00 <dizzie> I use Squeeze atm (6.0)

19:00 <CoderForLife> I think so too PovAddict, based on my experience in Chile

19:00 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

19:00 <dizzie> Never gonna use Ubuntu anymore lol

19:00 <PovAddict> in latam it seems more common to be OK with inserting English words

19:01 <dizzie> I got annoyed when i get asked if i speak spanish :P

19:02 <PovAddict> eg. here we're fine with saying "email" in the middle of a Spanish sentence, while in Spain they prefer translating to "correo electrónico"

19:04 <CoderForLife> sounds like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acad%C3%A9mie_fran%C3%A7aise

19:04 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/lhtvf> (at en.wikipedia.org)

19:04 <CoderForLife> their job is to create words to keep French "pure"

19:05 <CoderForLife> the reverse wasn't true in the unfortunate events of 1066

19:05 *** GaelicGrime has quit IRC

19:06 <CoderForLife> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Hastings when French became the official laguage of the English court, words like "superior" snuck in

19:06 <Romulus> Title: Battle of Hastings - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

19:07 <CoderForLife> oh well - given the events of the day, I'm very tired and emotionally spent
