kristianpaulinteresting, wikipedia allow me to export articles as zim format when making a book00:00
kristianpauls/zim/open zim00:00
kristianpaulso now the "dirty" work for generating the zim file is up to wikipedia servers :)00:04
kristianpauloh, qvido is not on the last images? is it broken or something?00:13
wolfspraulprobably broken, yes00:35
wolfspraulbut it's good to see that there is life in zim, we can get back to zim and friends...00:36
wpwrakah, the patent wars seem to be very inspirational ... for the creative folks: http://bl.ocks.org/115329200:40
wolfspraulthe other day I overheard a conversation of a group of elderly women at starbucks00:55
wolfspraulthey were talking about those fantastic yoga masters they found, very expensive ones of course, who were applying patented (!) yoga techniques!!!00:56
wolfspraulthe world wants to be fooled00:56
wpwrakthat's pretty sick indeed00:57
wpwrakmaybe that's how you could really make the M1 a hit. don't simply offer it in the shop. make it a limited edition and ask people to inquire. with an essay explaining why they deem themselves worthy to have an M1.01:00
wolfspraulI think it's neat. If that guy even has a real patent (is it needed?), then it's probably not too hard to get it accepted.01:00
wolfspraulwhen he gets it, triple your prices, and use in marketing01:00
wpwrakbiz model #2: print nice-looking fake patents on things that can't be patented01:00
wolfspraulthose women were adamant about a) how bad those other yoga guys are 'the regular ones' who don't have patents01:00
wolfsprauland b) how smart you are in patenting your stuff because that's how some of their husbands/uncles/whoever made money too01:01
wpwrakit's all about the pretense of exclusivity01:01
wolfsprauloh who knows, maybe a yoga technique actually can be patented, why not01:01
wolfspraulI like the idea01:01
wolfspraulit doesn't matter so much whether the patent is actually granted or defensible, I doubt he wants to sue other yoga places (that business model can come later)01:02
kristianpaulwolfspraul: if next owrt release is going to include again some free content (music and video) consider include this http://ia600209.us.archive.org/12/items/AllCreativeWorkIsDerivative/AWID2_Feb09_2010_H264_24fps.ogv from http://www.archive.org/details/AllCreativeWorkIsDerivative01:02
wolfspraulfor now it's about being able to multiply your own prices :-)01:02
wpwrakwhat the patent system really needs are a few good scandals. preferably sex scandals. nothing erodes the credibility of an organization like this :)01:03
kristianpaul(yoga technique) ha, so people can think they can patent dances as well, if is not crazy enoguht :/01:03
wpwrakintellectual property was yesterday. today it's karmic property. (i almost wrote "metaphysical", but i think we're already more or less there)01:05
wolfspraulkristianpaul: why don't you try to patent some dance and get money from dance schools?01:06
wolfspraulin the words of those women "those are stupid who don't do it"01:06
wolfspraulkristianpaul: it might even work! You can donate all proceeds to whoever you want...01:07
wolfspraulit's scary to realize that that might actually work...01:08
wolfspraulkristianpaul: nice video!01:10
wolfspraulyou think we should include it on the ben?01:10

qi-bot[commit] Maarten ter Huurne: Work around lack of vsynced page flipping in OpenDingux kernel. (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/gmenu2x/19064b419:14
mthok, I think rewriting history worked now19:15
wpwrakmth: doubleplusgood !19:17
kristianpauli used to forgot commit, and i end with commits having two different not very related changes, is there a way to fix it?19:20
kristianpaulcause i'm aware i can change commit order but not split commits 19:21
mthyou can use "git show" to get a diff and then split the diff in a text editor19:21
mthit's easier if you reliaze it before you commit, then you can just add one file, commit it, add the second file, commit again19:22
kristianpaul(realize) indeed, yeah i try to keep that on mind but i forgot..19:23
whitequarkkristianpaul: git rebase has an option for that19:27
kristianpaulyes , i tought was just about changing order19:33
whitequarkalso, it's easier to `git reset --soft HEAD^', then `git reset HEAD', then repeat `git add -p && git commit'19:43
kristianpaulreset even for old commits?19:52
qi-bot[commit] Maarten ter Huurne: MIPS: JZ4740: SLCD: Enable caching on mmap-ed frame buffer. (jz-3.0) http://qi-hw.com/p/qi-kernel/2452f6720:44
whitequarkkristianpaul: git reset --soft undoes commit22:10
whitequarkbut does not change any files22:10
whitequarki.e. all your diff becomes staged instead of committed22:10
wpwrakhmm, does anyone know a place on the Web where they have a collection of plots of cumulative distribution functions ?22:24
kristianpaulhum, mplayer is getting out of sync audio :/22:31
kristianpaulhum may be just because this file i sent is not "complete"22:41
qi-bot[commit] Maarten ter Huurne: Put platform specific defaults in systemwide gmenu2x.conf. (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/gmenu2x/a014a3323:09
