Re: Favorite programming language(s)

Python is cool enough that I overlook the fact that it has forced indentation. I play with Python 2 constantly still, as it's the version which I'm most comfortable using, but UCBerkley's SICP in Python 3 is a really interesting read and would probably make for a reasonable way to become more comfor...

Re: first time poster, long time burner

Welcome welcome. I need to get back to posting on my blog again, and this is the first chance I've had to even log on since I moved my family into the middle of nowhere (note: I DO have interwebz here!) As soon as I get done crying in the corner about the fact that I've probably totally made a huge ...

Re: Emacs tips and tricks

GP, that's a pretty sweet ansi-term config! I've been stuck writing short segments to get eshell to behave more like my zsh config for a while, but the interaction of the terminal has some pretty severe limitation when interfacing with 3rd party programs. I may take inspiration from (read: 'steal') ...

Re: Propaganda

Maybe we should add a testimonials section to our site, where we can each describe our own experiences and why we are grillers. Might be kind of gay, or not. I would gladly do this, but only if I can make it ESPECIALLY gay. "I shifted from a gentle RAM boot to a forceful sudo bbqinstaller, deeply t...

Re: Favorite programming language(s)

I like programming languages, all of them. I prefer to work in some C or any lisp variant, which surprises exactly 100% of nobody probably. I know what very little I know very poorly. You know, the basics: shell, python 2 & 3, C, C++, R, scheme, common-lisp, elisp, assembly, D, perl, batch, ladder l...

Re: Favourite Beers

Damn Ivan...I feel like such a beer pleb now.

@MB: When I think of 'beer I want to try', I can't say that Chinese has ever been the first country that I think of. I almost want to know how bad they are just for a frame of reference.

Re: Hello and thank you

Welcome to the BBQ bayberry. I like the "oh, it's working? Cool." philosophy quite a lot, especially when it comes to inits or kernels. Bikeshedding is a pointless waste of space as I see it.

You sound like you'll be a good fit, and it's nice to have you.

Re: Introduction

Welcome to the Grill Aspeak. Don't fall back to emacs, but rather learn vim TOO. Never let the tool define you. As far as things to add to emacs or vim, uhm...you'll have to be specific as to your needs, as I figure we could never reach the end of cool stuff to try on them.

Good to have you.

Re: Wux

I like Ubuntu, enough to use it on 1 partition of 3 on my Core2Duo, and will readily throw down with the haters. I tend to use their server install and then build from there, as it's easier to add specifically what I want in X than remove that which I don't. As long as you don't mind the politics (w...

Re: Comic Books/Graphic Novels

Kex, I would love it if you would make more recommendations for things of the form "_____ no _____", as I think that Dragonball and Hellsing are the only Japanese comics I've ever read. If you have a favorites list, I'd be willing to check them out and see what it's all about.

DebJoe, nice setup with all the blues, just one thing: it seems there's high resource usage in the background, I'd love to see top/htop or the pstree.

Re: Comic Books/Graphic Novels

Locke & Key Damn, this one was good. I'd strongly recommend it from start to finish, as it was certainly not designed to be read in parts. The art in it is a bit misleading, as the characters are penned in a similar style to a Sunday paper comic strip while the story itself is disturbing on many le...

Nice, I may actually find some new stuff to read here. While familiar with everything that GekkoP posted, and 2000AD, I've never checked into Grendel before. Is that one based on the Beowulf monster? One of the few that I've gotten into religiously following is Terry Moore's "Rachel Rising." Along w...
