                \_ The problem is that in the grocery store, the person who
                   is moving the aisles around is a grocer who knows his
                   customers.  On the Web, redesigns are often controlled
                   by people who have no clue what web customers need.
                   Particularly when the web site has a print publication
                   side; print design and web design are two completely
                   different things.  It's like having the grocery aisles
                   laid out by someone whose only experience is in

8/28    Did anyone watch the lunar eclipse last night?  I broke my $20
        binoculars while trying to focus to it.

6/13    I'm new to Eclipse as an IDE.  Is there any way to tell it to
        automatically reload a file that's been externally edited--without
        brining up a confirmation dialog?

2/10    Looking for a decent lightweight Javascript editor that can do
        simple error detections (like IntelliJ) on UNIX. Emacs can highlight
        well but doesn't do anything wrt to js errors. Recommendations?

8/23    I've been primarily developing Java in Eclipse, but I need to do a
        project with embedded C++, and I'd like a better IDE than Emacs.  MS
        Visual Studio is way too windows-centric.  All I really need is
        something that can do context-assists and autocompletes and flagging of
        illegal syntax.  Suggestions?
        \_ Have you tried this: --oj
           \_ That looks pretty good, but another project is having a minor
              crisis so I'll have to investigate later.  Thanks.

7/10    Any Eclipse experts here?  I was using 3.1 but had to reinstall and
        ended up with 3.2.  Formerly, if I would type something like
        "File foo;" a little error marker would offer to import
        for me.  If I used a function illegally it would offer to change it to
        a legal set of arguments.  This install of Eclipse doesn't do these
        nice things.  Any ideas how to get that behavior back?
        \_ I liked it.  You are stupid.  Keira Knightley is still flat.
        \_ Nevermind, fixed it myself:  When I installed Eclipse it picked a
           JRE to use, but because it picked a plain-old JRE, not the JDK, it
           couldn't look up the source of anything, so it couldn't make
           suggestions involving any system classes.  Telling it to use the JDK
           fixed it.

5/3     Where on the web can I find the video of the total solar eclipse
        of March 29 taken from the International Space Station that was
        shown on TV back then?  I tried to google for it unsuccessfully.
        \_ Does this help:
        \_ Are you sure there's video? Here's the photos:
        \_ Can you confirm this video ever existed?  The closest I could
           find are two still images:
        \_ Found it: -marked
           \_ Wait a sec, from the photos one can deduce from the position of the
              station, earth, moon, and sun, that the eclipse wasn't viewable
              from the station.
            \_ The station didn't experience the eclipse, in the sense that
               they were not in the moon's shadow.  But they could see the
               moon's shadow on the earth from their vantage point in
               space.  A friend told me he saw a video taken of this from
               the ISS on the news, but maybe he was confused.  Maybe it
               was just an animation or something.  -op

10/5    From a reliability standpoint, on an IDE hard disk, if you
        have write cache turned off, is there any advantage to using
        data=journal mode versus data=ordered mode? Related question, if
        I'm using data=journal mode, does turning write cache off have
        any reliability advantages?
        \_ I think the answer to the first question is yes, since
           I just read that data=ordered can result in corrupt data
           if power is interrupted while overwriting of a file.

2/16    I just downloaded IntelliJ IDEA and they don't have a friggin
        tutorial on their web site and I can't find any decent non-J2EE
        tutorial on Google. Need pointer, thanks.                   -dumb

              \_ I use the some customizations on the emacs keymap (which is
                 almost, but not quite, completely unlike emacs bindings), so
                 I indent regions by selecting them and hitting tab. You can
                 check your bindings by opening Settings->Keymap and checking
                 the Indent Selection setting under Editor Actions. Lines are
                 automatically indented when I hit enter; not sure what you're
                 asking in the first part of your question.

                    for fun and it's pretty neat, I love how you can have a
                    quick JavaDoc (CTRL-Q) and how it knows your method names
                    and everything for smart auto-completion. The coloring is
                    amazing too, it KNOWS the scopes and everything. Thank

6/1     What are some of the good IDEs for Java on Win platform? Thanks.
        \_ Lots of people like eclipse.  Codeguide is also nice.
        \_ depend upon you want to abide the intellectual property law or not.
           If you do, then, Eclipse is a good choice because it's free.
           If you have no problem violating intelletual property laws, then
           IntelliJ has good review from many java programmer.  JBuilder also
           as a very large user base.  Of course, you could become an odd ball
           and actually pay for these tools :p
        \_ avoid emacs's jdee.  pain in the butt on Win32
        \_ I've tried various IDE's and never liked any of them until I
           used IntelliJ. It's really well designed.
           \_ ditto. buy it so they don't go out of business.
           \_ so sayeth me.  Especially if you are at some company, make them
              pay for it.  I've known people at companies that bought crappy
              overpriced app servers like weblogic, but had their developers
              working on stolen versions of IntelliJ.  If you are doing that
              you are no better than a common thief.  Fill out a PO, jeesh.

        About 8 paragraphs from the end:
        One question on everyone's mind was whether the light actually
        got dimmer, so resourceful Daily Californian photographers Ian
        Buchanan and Robert Katzer took light readings near the peak of
        the eclipse and half an hour later.
        The camera said it needed a 1/250 of a second near the peak of
        the eclipse but only 1/640 half an hour later -- proving that the
        eclipse did block some light, even if most people couldn't tell.

6/10    Eclipse Today:
        Anyone know where to get eclipse glasses in the south bay (mnt. view
        san jose area)?
        \_ I wonder how many people blew out their digital camera CCD trying
           to photograph this thing.
        \_ I'm going out to the Great Circle to celebrate the New Cycle.
        \_ Whole Hippie Online sells them.  They have a store in SJ next to
           "Get A Job You Fucking Hippie" Resume Service
           \- er can you actually "blow out" a CCD? ... i mean short of
              shooting a laser into your camera.
        \_ The radio said for Bay Area about 60% of the sun will be obscured,
           but people won't notice any dimming of the sun light.  I don't
           understand why it won't get any darker than usual when more than
           half of the sun is obscured.
           \_ take physics 7C
              \_ oh, really?  i'm about half way through a phd in physics,
                 and it's not obvious to me, but i guess i don't have
                 your godlike insight.
                 \- i think it is eye reaction perhaps. i think between
                    aperture change and some difference in processing high
                    contrast probably explains it. e.g. i think often a room
                    with a naked lightbulb looks darker than a shaded light.
                    however if you use a light meter, you will proibably see
                    the reverse. if anyone own a light meter, see if you can
                    measure a difference. a spot meter on a newish camera
                    might do it too. --psb
                    \- actualy i thought about it some more and i think the
                       eclipse simply doesnt block a large area of the light
                       inclident on the earth. would you notice the light
                       level change in a room if a disk blocked only the
                       area of the lightbulb ... hard to explain without a
                       pciture. ok tnx.
                       \_ Actually a better analogy would be a disk
                          blocking part of a spotlight, because in the
                          lightbulb case you'd be getting much of the light
                          reflected off walls.  At any rate, I think the

              3133+ logout parties these days?  Any pics?
              \_ Hi Paolo.  Yes I have pics, yes they're going up when I
                 get the chance.  But first I have to crack open photoshop
                 and filter out that nasty blue shift your camera introduced
                 into them.  Say, seeing as you live across the hall from me,
                 why are you asking this on the motd?  Seems, um, inefficient.
                          light being scattered by the atmosphere
                          contributes a lot to the perceived brightness.  I
                          do recall the local brightness not changing very
                          much until only a few seconds around totality.
           \_ The sun is just really really really bright.
           \_ well it seemed quite a bit dimmer to me at 6pmish, the peak
              of the eclipse.  Though I doubt I'd have noticed it if not
              that I knew there was an eclipse going on. -ERic
