[18:41] <DarKnesS_WolF> alaa: what is bit bucket means ?
[18:42] <ezabi> DarKnesS_WolF: this is where the data sent to /dev/null/ ends
[18:43] <DarKnesS_WolF> ma 3lina :D
[18:44] <YoussefAssad> DarKnesS_WolF: a bit bucket is an architectural construct in the linux virtual memory design which allocates bits not fitting within the overall filesystem framework in a reserved area which is actually virtual, in the sense that it exists neither on the disk nor in memory.
[18:44] <YoussefAssad> Shit, management speak makes me hungry.
[18:44] <DarKnesS_WolF> YoussefAssad: wa 3`alwatk 3andy wla fahm 7aga
[18:45] <ezabi> MSameer: thx, yuck fou

[18:46] <alaa> DarKnesS_WolF: gardal bits
[18:46] <ezabi> DarKnesS_WolF: ma olna /dev/null sahla
[18:47] <YoussefAssad> alaa: gardal sharameet. "Bits in a bucket"
[18:47] <MSameer> DarKnesS_WolF: and this is really affected by the kernel level VFS in a great manner, and under some circumstances you can mount it provided that you have the permissions from the volatile bios memory which requires a special kernel module and the required tools to do so, the problem is that the required tools are being forked into 2, 1 of them is concerned about the historycal backword compatibility and is included in Debian woody and the other is a prealp
[18:47] <MSameer> ha which is included in Gentoo, The old one can't be really used as it's oncient and the new one though can be used but it'll erase all of the volatile data once mounted
[18:48] <DarKnesS_WolF> a7a


OK, "a7a" is an Arabic word that's usually said upon frustration

Today I'll give a 20 minutes short presentation on the State of Arabic FLOSS desktop in the conference
I prepared yesterday te presentation using openoffice impress and it gave me a hard time when it inserted a sound during slide transition.
Yesterday about 150 were there, I am really scared and I don't know how the hell am I going to talk infront of 150 one attending :(

* Arabic in Gentoo Forums, I don't think this'll be ever used for a period more than 1 week or 1 month and then it'll be dead.
* I've left the office yesterday at 1 am. We are building a live CD to customize an existing solution, However OpenOffice is a gay as usual and is refusing to install. I'll have to go now and fight for it, It's almost done!
* I've got kbluetooth working with my Nokia 6600, But I was able to upload files only, heh. I was able to do that from the command line without having to install more than 100 MB of binary data!
