  1. Re: PCWorld Worth-to-read articles (or from other sites)

    That is a silly argument. That's like saying that just because IE comes with Windows it isn't bloated!

    The fact of the matter is that transmission does have dependancies:
    Depends:...
  2. Re: PCWorld Worth-to-read articles (or from other sites)

    Pretty much any distro designed for a Netbook is an automatic fail. Being designed for a netbook seems to mean "Let's create a crappy full-screen launcher and force all programs full screen upon...
  3. Re: PCWorld Worth-to-read articles (or from other sites)

    I didn't say another machine. I said another user on that machine.

    If my account, Greyed, is compromised, my wife's account is not, root is not and most importantly the shared executables on the...
  4. Re: PCWorld Worth-to-read articles (or from other sites)

    Erm, that's always possible, install it in your home directory. *shrug*

    That the article misses, and why root is so important, is because while one can infect a single user's directory through...
  5. Re: here's a python snippet that's so easy i usually type it instead of saving it

    Actually I think this was more the reason than anything. Because the real noodle cooker isn't where to put the until, it is where to put the else. ;)



    x = 1
    while x < 10:
    stuff()

  6. Re: here's a python snippet that's so easy i usually type it instead of saving it

    3. We already have 2, while and for. Condensing while cond and while 1 to a generic loop: makes sense since it really changes nothing. As I pointed out while and do..until are the same side of the...
  7. Re: here's a python snippet that's so easy i usually type it instead of saving it

    Digressing but... I disagree and find it surprising you would want the including of do..until given your penchant for reducing languages to their inner Lisp. ;)

    while and do..until are both just...

    Re: python is the new basic

    No, actually, legos are a great analogy for programming. Anything you build out of legos are built out of small, discrete units. The very uniformity and interchangeability of certain pieces is what...
  9. Re: here's a python snippet that's so easy i usually type it instead of saving it

    In the many, many... maaaaaaannnnnyyyyy discussions in trying to get BDFL to implement do..until or some similar construct the same thing comes up time and again. Yes, while 1 is idiomatic but it is...

    Re: python is the new basic

    I was never really a fan of BASIC. I got out of it prior to QBASIC really taking off. I preferred Turbo Pascal at the time even though my brain was (and in some ways still is) resistant to the...
  11. Re: here's a python snippet that's so easy i usually type it instead of saving it

    Other than breaking the while 1 idiom, not bad. ;)



    import os
    while 1:
    q = raw_input()
    if q = "q":
    break
    q = os.system("mplayer -framedrop -zoom \"" + q + "\"")

    Re: Best netbook for Ubuntu is...?

    Oooo, anecdotal evidence. Ok, I'll see your EXPERIENCE with my own. I'm typing this out on a Dell mini 10v w/ATOM CPU and it runs all as intended.

    Now that we've canceled each other out care to...

    Re: Best netbook for Ubuntu is...?

    Pure FUD. ATOMs are fine. Only thing it cannot handle are things the netbook is not designed to handle.
  15. Re: [python] What would the best method be to include (custom) plugins

    If it is only a subset that is needed put them into a dict and pass that dict as a variable to the initializing method of the plugin. IE.

    Main program:

    shared = {'foo' : spam, 'bar' :...
  16. Re: [python] What would the best method be to include (custom) plugins

    Tat's first link looks clean. I did this once where I dropped python files into a subdirectory and they were imported in that manner. I went further in that I required each plugin to register...

    A: Not practicing enough because....
    B: ...I don't have enough projects.

    Sometimes I go months without touching a line of Python. It's amazing I can remember it at all sometimes. :(

    Re: Python: invalid literal

    If anything we need to know what day is before we can intelligently dig into why the code is choking on it.

    I mean if it is as Can surmises, a date like 09-09-09 then it is obvious why the failure...

    If by cleaner you mean hides the code underneath your current line, sure! I'll agree it's "cleaner". SA sits down in the corner, and doesn't obscure your code nor does it require you to hit a...

    It is somewhat possible but not really practical. The size of the index is related to the number of files in the directory and I believe it's sub...

    Yes. This isn't listed in the features of the plugin. In fact I have not seen it outside of WingIDE and I consider it one of the must-have features for coding because the other fuctions of most...
