00:27:59 <boily> there was a blizzard in 2007?
00:29:50 <boily> as I remember it, there was quite a lot of snow in 2008, something around 18’.

09:55:27 <b_jonas> Does Skype on win32 deliberately obfuscate its interface by hiding the "Quit Skype" command from the main menu, and by making the window close button silently keep skype running and visible only in the notification area?

12:53:44 <b_jonas> Great. I'm trying to override line break opportunities in a word document where word's automatic algorithm chooses them wrong. But calibri doesn't have the 0x2011 or 0x2060 characters in it (even though the first one should look identical to a hyphen and the second should display nothing and have no width) so all I can use is 0xFEFF.
12:55:02 <b_jonas> Can't they actually put characters into a fucking modern high-quality font when they're also easy to draw and implement?
12:56:02 <b_jonas> Although maybe these fonts are too old for those characters or something.
12:57:51 <Deewiant> Calibri's design began in 2002 and U+2011 dates from Unicode 1.1, i.e. the year 1993

13:01:14 <ais523> b_jonas: isn't there a soft hyphen in latin-1 somewhere?
13:01:19 <ais523> `unicode SOFT HYPHEN
13:01:21 <HackEgo> ​­
13:01:30 <ais523> hmm, that doesn't look like a soft hyphen to me
13:01:34 <Deewiant> b_jonas: Apparently Unicode 3.2, which came out in 2002, so it might not have been around when Calibri was started but it was definitely there before it was finished.
13:01:38 <FireFly> U+00AD Cf . SOFT HYPHEN
13:01:41 <ais523> `unidecode ​­
13:01:42 <HackEgo> ​[U+0020 SPACE] [U+200B ZERO WIDTH SPACE] [U+00AD SOFT HYPHEN]
13:01:50 <FireFly> That should be latin-1, I think
13:01:56 <ais523> oh, huh, it is a soft hyphen, as I discovered trying and failing to select it
13:01:59 <b_jonas> Deewiant: ok
13:02:05 <ais523> and yes, U+0000 to U+00FF is Latin-1
13:02:21 <ais523> b_jonas: is there a reason you can't use U+00AD?
13:03:05 <b_jonas> ais523: that has the wrong semantics. U+00AD is normaly invisible, and becomes a hyphen before a line break when you break the line there. that's for providing a hyphenation opportunity inside a word
13:03:08 <Deewiant> (U+00AD is equally old as U+2011)
13:03:21 <ais523> b_jonas: oh, I thought that's what you were trying to do
13:03:26 <ais523> what are you trying to do instead?
13:03:44 <ais523> (also, I'm massively confused as to why that soft hyphen is visible in my client, semantically it shouldn't be)
13:03:49 <b_jonas> ais523: I need a hyphen that's always present but where I don't want to allow a line break after it
13:04:01 <ais523> oh, I see
13:04:01 <FireFly> hm
13:04:14 <ais523> given that this is a Word document, I believe there's some sort of "don't break here" formatting you can apply
13:04:18 <FireFly> can you sue a ZWNBSP for that?
13:04:20 <FireFly> use*
13:04:20 <b_jonas> ais523: the soft hyphen can be visible in terminals or other programs that don't use a proper text-rendering engine
13:04:28 <ais523> b_jonas: this is a GUI client though
13:04:35 <ais523> also it seems to be treating the soft hyphen as zero pixels wide
13:04:38 <ais523> it's just that I can see it
13:04:52 <b_jonas> ais523: GUI might not necessarily mean it's written properly
13:05:01 <ais523> abc­def
13:05:13 <ais523> aha, the soft hyphen is only visible if there are no characters after it
13:05:41 <ais523> that's an interesting choice but a defensible one, I think
13:05:41 <b_jonas> ais523: the font might have a glyph for it that the text engine should render only when the hyphen is visible (when there's a line-break there, or when you show invisible characters explicitly for proof-reading a text)
13:05:53 <b_jonas> ais523: ah
13:06:12 <b_jonas> well that makes sense, the end of a text is always a line-break utility (though in some contexts it might not be treated as such)
13:06:54 <b_jonas> um
13:07:07 <b_jonas> s/utility/opportunity/
13:21:08 <ais523> SHY LF is a pretty silly combination as it is
13:21:13 <ais523> what does that even mean?
13:25:03 <b_jonas> ais523: it might be silly, but you can't really "ban" a character combination for general text. you just have to treat it in some fallback way
13:25:26 <ais523> b_jonas: right
13:25:37 <b_jonas> you might get such a combination when you try to abbreviate some text for a shorter field or something
13:25:38 <ais523> ideally Unicode would be normalized, with all combinations being meaningful
13:25:45 <ais523> but as it isn't, you need some semantics for meaningless sequences like that
13:26:03 <b_jonas> well, most programs do sort of handle all combinations in some way

18:22:44 <wob_jonas> so I was trying to write a simple command that I run under my X session and changes to another virtual terminal. but it seems that this is not possible directly, because you only have permission for that ioctl if a real tty console is your controlling terminal, and it seems when icewm-session starts icewm, it calls setsid and so any process I start
18:22:45 <wob_jonas> from icewm can't have the original tty as the control terminal.
18:22:58 -!- sleffy has joined.
18:23:26 <wob_jonas> but X11 itself can change to a virtual console if I press a key. is there some X11 call I can do from an X11 program to ask X11 to do that?
