    Well sodomy is a very divisive activity so I'm not sure cute is the term I'd use! :wink:

    @ahmedcharles
    I meant that people from the same country being upset when people outside that country are confused about what names to call different parts of that country.
    That's cute.
    I wasn't stating my opinion on sodomy.
    I wasn't aware if this slang usage, in fact.

    Aside: No, Java, I don't want you to update my browser settings to have yahoo as my default home page. I want to update Java so I don't get owned, stop asking stupid questions!

    Some of my work colleagues had a feedback session with the Nuget team and one of the suggestions they made was about package identity and trust - that "Package ID prefix reservation" now made it in http://blog.nuget.org/20170417/Package-identity-and-trust.html
    Pretty cool.

    @ahmedcharles Abode flush is the same, if I allow some of the external javascript to run (overcome my default "block" on things with "NoScript") on their site on my Windows PCs I get asked if I want to install McFee virus software (should be "anti-virus" but with that approach I think the former term is more appropriate, given the pre-clicked checkbox) and I think there is now a second (un)helpful utility from a different antimalware company that wants to scan my PC for problems... :rage:

    Apropos the mention of helpful error messages in #946 I got this recently

    Trying to google a problem with which... fml
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    which what, why?
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Yeah, exactly
    Exactly my problem
    The which command.
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    FWIR which indicate the path/filename as stored in a cache (as determined by bashs last run attempt for that command) that will be used if that command is entered again.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    oh
    ok
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Should the binary get deleted it will have to update the cache.

    I often find myself wishing that I could go back in time to before mudlet existed and joined the project and just said 'no' to how most features were implemented. Cause at this point, there's so many features and so much spaghetti that it almost seems impossible to not break stuff while trying to fix things.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2

    ¯\(ツ)

    Not breaking stuff is super important, agreed.

    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    haha

    @SlySven

    ...there's so many features and so much spaghetti...

    (void) TBuffer::translateToPlainText( std::string & s ) one method, over 1200 lines of code:

    "You are in a maze of twisty lines of code some of them nearly the same!" :worried:

    Dunno about Utf-8 but I think I might have a solution for ISO 8859-1,2,3...15 :grin:
    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    I didn't know it was that long.
    And it doesn't even do what it says on the tin.
    Well, maybe. I think it does telnet decoding.
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Making some headway actually - hope to put out a work in progress to display ISO 8859-1,2,3,4,10 (so far) and possibly a USC Level-1 (no Combining characters or Hangul Jamo) Unicode display tomorrow. Still need to trap over-long sequences and add script-able control of the encoding...

    Perhaps I just like using dead as a branch name.

    This is not how you should do release notes
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven

    Humm, I need a function to take the results from pcre operations acting on UTF-8 encoded strings (as good C string handling functions should :angel:) and convert the indexes to count into the same strings in UTF-16BE - i.e. what Qt uses as the basis of their QStrings and being their recommended manner to deal with Unicode :imp: so I have to convert from one variable length encoding to a different one.

    Guess if this I18n stuff was that easy Yanks would have ensured everyone had to use Unicode... :hurtrealbad:

    Ahmed Charles
    @ahmedcharles
    haha
    Could use pcre16? :P
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Yeah I subsequently saw that and did wonder...
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    @SlySven are you across https://github.com/Swordfish90/cool-retro-term ? You know, for some nostalgia? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
    I like this! I think we already align with / on our way to align with some of the lessons
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    It is not obvious which terminal that cool-retro-term is based upon - or perhaps it is customisable. Mayhaps it can provide a Digital Equipment Corporation's VT100 emulation that will really test those MUD clients that claim they offer that - and then do such non-VT100 things as colour {which only started to appear in the VT241?} Mind you I'm more of an Lear Siegler ADM-31 man myself. :wink:
    ...Oh for a proper 4-20mA current loop serial port...
    ...at a decent 9600 baud-rate and with 8-bits, (never-mind we don't need those pesky parity bits and 1 Stop bit is more than enough)!

    lol, qt creator 4.3.0 got rid of their qml welcome screen implementation for a qwidgets based one to load quicker: http://code.qt.io/cgit/qt-creator/qt-creator.git/commit/src/plugins/welcome/welcomeplugin.cpp?h=4.3&id=16944277d2aa2cdab194ec05de6c8e2d5ee814cd
    they didn't mention it anywhere, even in the changelog. The QML baby ain't at hot :\
