: The big advantage I see with
focus-follows-mouse is the ability to work on a window
that's not in the top of the stack. This is especially good
for debugging, or to do small maintenance tasks in a
terminal while using another application that requires a
large window. But I strongly dislike the auto-raise feature,
it's annoying. I also like to switch desktops moving the
mouse over the screen edge, with no resistance. Most people
seem to hate it.
crudman: Any idea on how to
glReadPixels to work using an NVIDIA card? I can only get
black pixels when I try to build an mpeg movie with my robot
mettw: I strongly agree. Also
noticing the increasing number of supporters (and it seems
to be happening quickier among Raymondists, even among
people that are supposed to have good education) of the
notion that anything that requires learning is useless and
anything that is slightly complicated is not well designed
and should be scraped. Perl is the work of devil. Linear
Algebra should be scraped. Calculus is badly designed. Rigid
Body Mechanics is complicated, and should not be used. Bloat
is acceptable, non-scientific behaviour is encouraged.
avi: the new player is now
playing a lot
better. Travolta's mods are still not very good, mostly
because CIA timing is implemented at mixer level and
Hipolito is working on it (I'm using a quick hack to produce
sound while the real mixer isn't merged). But indeed it's a
cool tune! I wish I could watch State of Art and 9Fingers in
a real Amiga :( The last time I played with a real Amiga was
in a meeting many years ago, when we kicked Mad Elks'
Technological Death and then chomakeyed it with
Koyaanisqatsi scenes. Wow, the result was great.
bruder: hey! I thought the
was a rumour!
