But can it give me the Hebrew and Chinese dates?
Sounds like a Firefox plugin waiting to happen!
(locate everything that looks like a date and replace it with ones from some other calendar? It could be extensible with different non-Gregorian calendars! We'd need, at least, Hebrew, Chinese, the Islamic moon-based one, Julian, Dischordian...)
You boys have fun with that.
Elvish, too! Its not a proper geek toy unless it has Elvish function built in!
I NEED MY EVENTS IN DISCORDIAN.
By the way, do you have plans for Boomtime, the 35th of The Aftermath, in the Year of Our Lady of Discord 3172 ?
You know, through a series of coincidences, I am thinking about Discordianism again.
The Discordian calendar sounds like a Linux app/plugin waiting to happen, what with ddate already being there.
Real power users already have iCal running. ;)
Well, I'm not worried about real power users; they'll find a way to look at an iCal feed. I'm worried about everyone else.
But that's kind of a larger question. I ran Linux for three years. During that time, (Mozilla and then) Firefox was the most polished desktop app I used. I would do just about anything to not have to leave Firefox, and, by and large, that attitude has stayed with me even though I switched to OS X a year ago. Does that make me less of a "power user"?
Yes. A real power user would be using lynx.
Or possibly Amaya, which of course is the only standards compatible browser.
Well, "Amaya" means "without Maya", and as we discussed, you like Maya.
I second this. My linux desktop is firefox, gvim, terminal, muine, and gaim... and I hate gaim.
Yep. When I was in school: Firefox, Terminal, emacs. Maybe OpenOffice or xpdf if I was doing homework. When I was out of school, um, pretty much Firefox.
I might switch back to Linux when I'm in school again. It makes it harder to goof off.
What do you have against gaim?
Unless you are saying you don't like im in general.
I love IM. IM is a major component of most of my friendships. I've fallen in love over IM.
But gaim is about minimal. It's UI is clunky, it biffs wrong, checking status messages is tedious, and the shortcut keys are mapped to some standard that is incompatible with my habits.
What version are you using?
I'll have to check, it's either 2.0.0+beta4-4 or 2.0.0+beta5-1
Shit, this conversation is getting too boring and technical, even for me.
I don't think that program is in my apt-cache. Which means it doesn't exist.
I've noticed two things:
1. This is the most boring post this month, and it still has lots and lots of responses.
2. The more entries are posted, the more responses show up. I have been thinking that the way to get more comments is to post less, so as not to overwhelm people. But perhaps the real strategy is to make your journal THE MAIN EVENT.
This is the most boring post this month, and it still has lots and lots of responses.
Well, half of them are you. Maybe you love being bored.
Would that explain the hours I spend looking through the U-Line catalog, admiring cardboard boxes and plastic bags?
The way to get more comments is to directly address, in your post, many LJ users from whom you want comments. They'll be scanning your post, and they'll be like "Ooh! Me!" and hit Post Comment.
I am going to test your theory. Check my livejournal soon! You might even be mentioned!
