wpwraknicksydney: looks lovely ! here, we may have reverse fireworks, with the fire falling from the sky. there's a major thunderstorm brewing that may hit just around midnight.

Action: eintopf thinking he sitting now at the root of this crazy L4 microkernel OS16:33
wpwrakand this is for vladimir's loyal subjects: happy new year ! nastrovje ! :)21:03
wpwrakfun problem: scrollable list of elements of some size. there is also a pointer to the current element that is always at the middle of that element. you can scroll either with up/down keys or by sliding it by +/- Y pixels. you have only a window of certain size to see things. since sliding can produce movement of a fraction of an element, there has to be some visual feedback for this. defining an algorithm to display things "perfectly"21:41
wpwrak gets remarkably difficult.21:41
