I know that [livejournal.com profile] rosefox and [livejournal.com profile] sinboy, and I think that [livejournal.com profile] kgola are all going to Arisia. Who else is?

So I'm getting a new nearly sub-notebook in a few days. It comes with Vista, which I'll be keeping on it, just in case Spore ever actually comes out, but the rest of the time, I'll be using Linux. The laptop will have WiFi and Bluetooth, and I've found that there are very few good graphical programs for managing either, and all only work in the major Desktop Environments (KDE and Gnome). So, even though I'm getting used to Gnome at work (thanks Fedora Core, in your RPM muck), I'm thinking of going the KDE route. And I'm thinking, therefore, of going with Kubuntu for no-configuration Debian-derivative joy. However, I am very open to whichever distro can make suspend-to-disk easy and work with most (preferably my) laptops. Any suggestions? I have experience with Slackware, Gentoo (most recently and most in-depth), and a little bit of Debian. Sabayon (and the fact that it's Gentoo-derived) interests me, but I'm concerned the stock Intel video card will not be up to the task. I suppose for that last bit I can try the live CD out.

More fun with about:config

Here's the key name you want to find: "browser.tabs.closeButtons" and you want to set it to "2" if you want to kill all the close buttons. If you set it to "0", you will find that only the active tab has the close button.

For me, my close button is the MIDDLE MOUSE BUTTON and I don't want screen real estate taken up.

[livejournal.com profile] shoujo_mallet hates the download manager in Firefox. I have worked out how to disable it:
  1. Go to about:config
  2. Search for "download"
  3. Set browser.download.manager.closeWhenDone to true
  4. Set browser.download.manager.showWhenStarting to false

Yes, I know steps 3 and 4 may be a little redundant, but it never hurts to double-check your work.

Put in your .screenrc file the following line:
termcap linux XT:true
Which tells screen that any terminal identifying itself as "linux" (which is the default setting for PuTTY) has XTerm capabilities. If your system uses terminfo instead of termcap, you can use the "terminfo" command instead. Or even better, you (and probably I [actually, that's what I'm doing now]) could use "termcapinfo" which covers all your bases so you may best move your zig.

I've been wanting to write about this for a while. Well, since it happened, anyways.

Much fun was had. I got to learn of the joys of S.J. Tucker. I got to snuggle with [livejournal.com profile] shoujo_mallet and many others (like [livejournal.com profile] charleniehead, Vickery, [livejournal.com profile] kitty_trie, and others). I got to see [livejournal.com profile] rosefox and [livejournal.com profile] sinboy. I got to room with [livejournal.com profile] ladyravn and her beaux.

The panels were good, save the one that wasn't.

The sciffie party was good. Though I wish I had remembered that Kallos was bringing his PS2 so I could have played some Katamari.

So who are you, primo.rh.rit.edu?

And how interesting to see that you are running RealVNC and kept the java applet open. ;-) [No, I did not, nor will I, (genuinely) attempt to use this information to my benefit/amusement.]

Tell me what I did wrong with the JavaScript. Moz and Opera agree that <tt>xmlhttpChange</tt> is not defined, while MSIE claims it simply cannot run the function.

(The appropriate file is tree.html and is in the iFrame)

I got free Opera. You can, too, if you hurry.

I've started a project of building a "Black Belt Family Tree" for Howard's branch of the WMAA (and possibly above?). It will be implemented in AJAX and XML (not just for buzzwords sake, but rather because AJAX is a powerful client-side tool, and XML is the native language of AJAX). To this end, I would also like to make the XML render nice in compatable browsers (I've heard IE cannot do this?) before attacking the harder problem of making a JavaScript client (it also may help me with thinking of the problem more visually. Here is the first XML file. Does anyone know any good online AJAX/XML resources? Any good dead tree ones?

So, I'm thinking of picking up some free webhosting, but I still need to decide what to do with it, and also whether or not I can afford to perform the necessary post count to keep the account (the TOS doesn't specify). And music is forbidden from the host which is totally annoying if I, say, wanted to redistribute some Open music there, or something. OTOH, it will give me a chance to get some experimentation with web programming with MySQL. Anyways, they have cpanel, which makes backups trivial, and I have some experience with working on that with Onenpbqn, back in the day.
