tilmancaching stuff, cookies, and some ad blocker are what's important11:58

treachwell, adblocker isn't that critical, you could always use privoxy or so. If it supports proxys. :>11:59
surrounderit starts like instantly though, that's nice :P11:59
tilmandoes it still require gnome icons?12:04
surroundercould be, seems I have a few dead icons in the menus/bars12:07

jdolanlulz @ thomas penteker12:27
teKit simply sucks12:28
jdolanwah u made me read an email, all is lost.12:28
teKi'd accept this behaviour on a windows mailing list as people using outlook tend to be unable to use the media 'e-mail'12:28
jdolani wish i had so little to worry about that things like that could be the focus of my day, is all i'm saying.12:29
teKno jdolan, it cost me almost two days to write the reply12:30
treachtime to learn touch-typing. ;)12:31
jdolanit took you two days to write that?  holy shit.12:31
teKnot really. 99% of these to days I spent studying irony (successfully)12:32
treachI'd call that "sarcasm"12:32
teKI made this reply, he will change it hopefully, if he won't: okay, too12:32
treach"No teK, it's not ironic" :>12:33

VileTimesAh! Hello hello, cruxians. How are we this evening?19:21
VileTimesI'm wondering if there any openbox users I can annoy with my n00b questions about.19:22
VileTimeskmandla! Don't be shy. I know you're a big Ob fan.19:26
VileTimesAnyhow, what I'd like to know is how to start an application (like urxvt) maximized after executing openbox-session. Any ideas?19:28
VileTimesSure, I can defione the geometry, but I need to tell Openbox to align urxvt to the top of the screen.19:28
VileTimesAs it stand now, I need to do it manually after I give it the command to undercorate -- needless to say, not very sexy. :(19:30
VileTimesjoin #openbox19:42
*** Orby has joined #crux20:04
kmandlaLook in rc.xml; the application tag has a force position command that will send an app to a single spot every time it's opened.20:07
kmandlaAdd that to the maximize tag and it should work fine.20:07
kmandlathere's more in the comments in .config/openbox/rc.xml20:07
VileTimesThanks for the heads-up, kmandla. Oh, and great blog, btw. I've come across some very interesting tools and distros reading it. ;)20:14
VileTimesI too am strangely attached to my old laptop and see no reason to throw it out / sell it because "it's only a P3 500mghz with 256Meg of RAM". All that to say, keep up the good work. My laptop appreciates being useful.20:18
kmandla:) The more I use Linux the more I realize how much money I was wasting buying a new computer every few years. :|20:19
VileTimesI've always been trying to find the most efficient apps/OSes for this laptop. First it was Slackware, then Ubuntu (paired down server edition), and now Crux. Crux is probably the best distro for this machine. I have a tweaked out beast of a desktop and it can handle Ubuntu, but for the older bits, it's crux.20:22

VileTimesHmmm ... MaximizeFull is the tag for rc.xml, but there is no way to apply it to one instance of urxvt which is launched on startup. :(21:58
nipuLi used to use crux on my celeron 400 notebook, but i got sick of compiling22:28
nipuLit's running arch now, the only problem is that crux boots so quickly, arch seems like a sloth in comparison22:29
VileTimesHow've you been?22:45
VileTimesCompiling is good for older systems.22:45
