brolin_empeysixwheeledbeast: I thought so too but neither of those ideas worked.  Now, hours later, I realised that bash may have a way to specify a character by its numeric value/code point specified as a string, like “‑” for U+2011 in HTML.00:05
sixwheeledbeastx being hex value?00:08
sixwheeledbeastI suppose it would be sensible for chars like that not to be used in filenames in the first place. but that can be out of your control.00:12
brolin_empeysixwheeledbeast: Yes, the ‘x’ indicates that the following value is in hexadecimal.  Without qualification, the following value is interpreted as decimal.  And yes, I agree that it is easier to avoid using these special characters in file names if feasible.  I ended up renaming the file on the destination/remote host to use only “normal” characters instead of using parentheses.00:22
Oksanaasixwheeledbeast : MicroB is not ever simple, be it upgrade of Gecko-Goanna, or upgrade of openssl, or whatever.01:24
Oksanaabrolin_empey : It would not be so slow if... Websites weren't so bloated. Ikiwiki is simple enough to load just fine. Internet banking website loads mostly fine, but JavaScript makes it extra slow.01:25
Oksanaabrolin_empey : I think that battery collectors collect any batteries - rusty, leaking, bulging, whichever chemistry - and then carry them by land, not air, to wherever they sort and recycle them.01:27
brolin_empeyOksanaa: I meant that the N900 is generally too slow, not only for Web browsing.  The cellular data connection on the N900 in Canada is so slow that it is practically unusable for Web browsing even if the computer is sufficiently fast.02:41
OksanaaCellular data connection is slow? Why? Because it's 3G [not 4G], or because cellular modem is old-ish, or because cellular antenna is not that good?08:33
brolin_empeyOksanaa: Because the cellular modem of the N900 does not support the fast cellular data network/connection types used in Canada, as far as I know, which may be part of the reason the N900 was never released in Canada.08:47
OksanaaHuh, lucky Canada.08:51
MaxdamantusIt's not just the 3.5 issue, is it? (ime, the phone tends not to manage to switch to "3.5" immediately, so data doesn't get sent)09:04
* Maxdamantus often sends an SMS to himself to get it on 3.509:04
* Maxdamantus needs to set something more automatic up, so he doesn't have to keep opening/closing windows when doing that.09:05
brolin_empeyMaxdamantus: I do not know and it no longer matters because I stopped using an N900 in 2014.09:15
sixwheeledbeast3G should be fast enough for general browsing IMO. It's a combination of everything, some websites are garbage, the browsers are not compatible with many sites causing it to hang, therefore the device isn't powerful enough to recover from this hanging.12:58
sixwheeledbeastClean boring HTML and basic CSS load fast with no issues but how many sites are like that on the inet?12:59
sixwheeledbeastHTTP not HTTPS I may add, tho.12:59
Vajbbiggest issue is https sites IMO13:17
Juestojust installed hildon-desktop on lenny lol17:16
Juestosicelo: it appears that the ui is bora18:17

Vajbis anyone else having problems connecting to Telegram?19:57
Vajbseems to be working now.20:47
siceloVajb: i haven't used it with pidgin in a while now. i use telegram-cli instead ;)21:08
Vajbsicelo: how does it work in n900?21:14
Juestowhat did i miss21:19
bencohVajb: I've had issues with bitlbee/telegram-purple as well21:21
bencohI think that telegram-purple doesn't support well network disconnections in some case21:22
bencohsometimes it takes it 2h to recover for no apparent reason21:23
Vajbbencoh: sounds about right. I had network disconnection and then it whined about being unable to connect to server, while all the others work as expected.21:36
Vajbworth noting that my facebook chat in purple worked as well21:36
siceloVajb: works just fine. hwkbd helps.22:11
siceloobviously no smilies/emoji, but works perfect for me.22:11
