03:15 Coderjoe qbasic and quickbasic have another big feature that regular basic lacks: subroutines and functions
03:15 Blastfurnace[RCo left #rosettacode
03:30 mwn3d_phone More vandalism today
03:30 mwn3d_phone Not sure what to do besides clean it up
03:52 * opticron remembers coding in stampbasic
03:53 opticron it didn't support else :/

07:57 SoniaKeys mmm, pseudocode provides absolutely mindless programming.  insertion sort: after closing the bar...

12:00 shortcircuit I think we're going to need some kind of reputation system to deal with the spam.
12:02 shortcircuit Not a voting type, but something based on kinds of wiki activity.
12:03 shortcircuit I've got an idea for how it might be structured, but I think I need more sleep before I try putting it into words.

16:48 shortcircuit Home sick today.
16:49 shortcircuit Going to rebuild the Linode (backup target VPS) once I finish transferring the accumulated backup images to my home system.
16:50 shortcircuit I don't know if I'm going to set it up with Arch, Gentoo or Debian 6.
16:50 shortcircuit I'm about equally comfortable in all three.
16:50 mwn3d_phone I only have limited experience with debian but I liked what I saw
16:50 * opticron runs debian unstable on EVERYTHING
16:51 opticron despite the name, it's pretty damn rock solid
16:53 * shortcircuit nods.
17:01 mwn3d_phone My debian install messed up but it was probably from dual booting that and windows and sharing data between them
17:02 mwn3d_phone Also I couldn't get 3d acceleration working in debian with my video card
17:02 mwn3d_phone But you don't need that
17:02 slavik1 mwn3d_phone: nvidia card?
17:03 mwn3d_phone ATI
17:06 opticron I don't think I've ever used 3D acceleration on linux
17:06 parsleyfirefly With ATI, you can get good 3d acceleration with the proprietary drivers, but some other stuff (like multi-monitor) doesn't work as well
17:11 mwn3d_phone I have nvidia now but no linux
17:14 shortcircuit Neither nVidia's nore ATI's closed Linux drivers work well with multimon.
17:15 shortcircuit Though my 5-display setup might have been pushing the limits of sanity for non-mirrored, non-unified display.
17:17 shortcircuit Both manufacturers' drivers work passably in general, and even /well/ for some use cases, but they don't work as well as, say, a multicard+multimon setup on an XP/Vista/Win7 box.
17:18 shortcircuit AFAIK, neither works with Xinerama, nor with the current kernel modesetting behavior.
17:18 shortcircuit Well, nVidia's worked with Xinerama, but with some features nonfunctional.

18:47 Coderjoe I tend to stick with debian testing for most stuff
