[15:40:25] <alex_joni> hello guys
[15:42:35] <jepler> hi alex_joni
[15:42:49] <alex_joni> hi jeff, how is everything
[15:44:01] <jepler> it's fine
[15:44:07] <alex_joni> cool..
[15:44:14] <jepler> just bitching about how crappy tk is
[15:47:12] <alex_joni> heh, I don't wanna know
[15:53:37] <jepler> the Tk listbox doesn't support a "multicolumn" display (think all modern file request dialogs)
[15:53:58] <jepler> there's one in bwidget, but it's seriously N**2 when inserting N items, so you can't use it when you have thousands of items
[15:55:23] <jepler> it's like the Tk people and the bwidget people don't care if it works well, they just write things like bwidget ListBox so they can check off the item that says "listbox with multiple columns and icons"
[15:56:44] <jepler> "OK, we're done. Never mind if it takes 20 seconds to insert 16000 items, and minutes to insert 32000 items".
[15:59:10] <alex_joni> lol
[15:59:50] <alex_joni> as I always said.. programmers are weird
[16:24:29] <jepler> I've filed a patch against bwidget, so now they can commence ignoring it.
[16:25:33] <jepler> they've only got 3 dozen open patches dating to 2001, so I'm sure they'll get working right away
[16:26:25] <alex_joni> heh
[16:27:12] <SWPadnos> they're making sure the paches are Y2K compliant
