Motorola Charm coming to T-Mobile with ‘enhanced’ Android 2.1 Motoblur? Update promised for CLIQ and CLIQ XT? — Engadget.

Interesting form factor. Looks like a Blackberry running Android.

It’s been a long year. I have been working my Diomedes Adobe AIR IRC Client since at least April of last year, but I didn’t commit anything until June 7th (2009). Well now that it’s been a full cycle around the sun, I have made some changes.

  • I’ve fixed all remaining worst bugs that I know of.
  • I am now going to create a two-app system where 0.2.0 stays stable, with only critical bug fix updates and an alpha-app which will have the latest bleeding edge updates. Previously, updates could severely break the client for all users when automatic updates were installed, but no more. New features will be included only in minor version updates.
  • Updated the README information required for individuals interested in contributing.

Coming soon in 0.3.0:

  • SSL support.
  • Per channel logging.
  • Customizable channel view (with CSS and HTML!)
  • UI overhaul

A site design overhaul is coming for apphacker.com too!

Of course, Diomedes is open source and hosted on GitHub!

To make option left (⌥←) move to previous word you only need to add a new key binding entry like the following:

Terminal Key Editing

To insert 33b you need to hit the escape key (which inserts 33) and then press b.

You want to do the same for option cursor right. You can also bind control left/right to begin/end of paragraph. The shell keys for these two actions are ⌃A and ⌃E. In the key bindings editor you press ⌃A (control A) and it will insert 01 as the string value:

Terminal Key Editing

I don’t get why this has to be done or what is wrong with the default Terminal.app settings. Really bizarre.

My Adobe AIR IRC client has a new repository home. Git is awesome as is github. Also added some bug fixes associated with ipv6 and action highlights. Going to add bnc and SSL support soon!

Chromium Blog: A sneak peek at the Native Client SDK.

Taken together, the SDK lets you write C/C++ code that works seamlessly in Chromium and gives you access to powerful APIs to build your web app.

Insane. I suppose this will be Chrome’s ActiveX as I don’t see other browsers implementing this.

Firefox 4: fast, powerful, and empowering » beltzner.

The slide is worth going through, one of the gems is “no more modal dialogs.” That would be awesome. Speed is a big issue for Firefox, as is image perception. I just don’t think that Firefox is hot with the early adopters anymore. Among developers at least Firefox feels clumsy, bloated and antiquated. Not sure what happened, I guess Chrome came around!

gfxCardStatus is an open-source menu bar application that keeps track of which graphics card your 2010 (and now 2009!) MacBook Pro is using at any given time, and allows you to switch between them manually.

Ars technica explains the problem this app is trying to solve: the automatic switching between integrated graphics and the NVIDEA graphics card and its affect on battery life.

That’s it!

git revert [–edit | –no-edit] [-n] [-m parent-number] [-s] <commit>

You can find the git commit you want to delete by looking at your git log. git show-branch also can help but it wont show the commit id. The commit id is probably a long hash.

For example:

git revert ddd5e0a8d79cc4ace25828b5386e15be82ada519

Reverted a commit I just made. The -n option will prevent the change from being committed automatically.
