    How do i stop the cube from spinning


    the best part in my book

    1. 4

      My favourite is the how do I exit vim issue :)

      1. 5

        My favorite is the “vim³ isn’t for quitters” response to that issue

      2. 4

        That had me giggling as well

        1. 7

          Reminds me of one of my favorite FAQ items a grabbed from some README, long ago:

          Q: Why is it written in Mono/C#?

          A: Because I hate freedom.

          1. 5

            I think my favourite comes from the zlib FAQ:

            Can you please sign these lengthy legal documents and fax them back to us so that we can use your software in our product?

            No. Go away. Shoo.

        This gave me flashbacks to 2006/7 and the Compiz cube…

        1. 11

          those were such good times! Also, Beryl and Emerald, oh, can’t forget compiz-fusion (iirc). So much lag with lots of bells and whistles enabled, but so many dropped jaws when showing it off. I even gave a speech on it for a speech class. Good times.

          1. 10

            For reasons I tried Compiz as a possible replacement for Marco (the default MATE desktop compositor), and I’ve got to say: it’s pretty performant! The animations that used to be so laggy are just smooth on even modest modern hardware. I fell into the rabbit hole of checking what the project was up to and there’s been some bit of drama about how the versions have changed and broken previous plug-ins, there was even a fork and so on… felt just like the good old times, lol

          2. 4

            We have a cube these days in Wayfire. And wobbly windows. And burning windows! :D

          3. 17

            The “I use arch btw” FAQ entry is hilariously disturbing.

            1. 8

              Upvoted for no reason. :)

              1. 6

                Too bad I’m working from home, I would have loved casually using this when a colleague looks at your screen.

                I have arch installed btw Try this: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libtinfo.so.6 /usr/lib/libtinfo.so.5

                I was once told symlinking library versions is bad practice, but I never experienced problems (except people on the arch linux forums getting annoyed at you).

                1. 6

                  I’ve been waiting for this years – no, decades. Finally, a vim for 4D people.

                  1. 5

                    Quite interesting that this is written in nim, too.
