Aranelalterego: PR1.300:07
MohammadAG51reinstall your theme00:07
alteregoCould you dpkg --list00:07
alteregoYeah, try that too :)00:08
AranelMohammadAG51: but It's the default one, how I'm going to that?00:08
MohammadAG51reinstall it :p00:08

alteregoSomething sounds like it's got corrupt.00:21
Aranelcan't I reinstall the conversations app?00:21
Araneland purge config files related to it?00:22
Aranelreflashing because of a stupid scrollbar makes me feel really bad :|00:22

DocScrutinizerI'd check gconftool -R for suspicious keys, maybe by |grep rollbar  and |grep rolling and |grep inetic00:26
AranelDocScrutinizer:  Nokia-N900-42-11:~# gconftool -R | grep rollbar Must specify one or more directories to recursively list.00:26
AranelDocScrutinizer: can you help me out about this?00:26
DocScrutinizer -R /00:27
*** Bash1 has quit IRC00:28
AranelDocScrutinizer: I noticed an entry, scrollbar = true00:28
DocScrutinizeryou considered to restore a backup? just the settings might suffice to restore00:28
AranelI don't have any backups to be honest :|00:28
DocScrutinizerprobably you're better off with less instead of grep00:29
DocScrutinizeror give grep some context00:30
*** smooph1 has joined #maemo00:30

*** smooph has quit IRC00:31
AranelDocScrutinizer: *stupid question* I couldnt understand anything in fact :|00:32
AranelDocScrutinizer: should I do gconftool -R | less?00:32
DocScrutinizergconftool -R | grep -B 5 rollbar00:32
DocScrutinizeror less, I'd use less00:32
DocScrutinizersearching in less is fine, you just have to either patch your system to handle Enter key correctly, or use ^M00:34
*** scoobertron has quit IRC00:34
AranelDocScrutinizer: looks like that scrollbar entry was xterm, not conversations app.00:34
jacekowskihmm, first really productive day in couple weeks00:34

jacekowskiand i managed to work around rslogix5k code protection00:35
DocScrutinizerAranel: :nod: :-/00:35
jacekowskibtw. if anybody is interested i made a copy of that flash that somebody linked here couple days ago
DocScrutinizerAranel: maybe you find better results by searching for better matchstrings. onversations seems a good one00:36
AranelDocScrutinizer: any other ideas about this issue? I'm kinda hopeless now.00:36
*** pH5 has quit IRC00:37
DocScrutinizerbut honestly, I'm somewhat just wild guessing. an strace of conversations app might also help00:37
*** smooph1 has joined #maemo00:38
*** ToJa92 has quit IRC00:38
DocScrutinizerprobably a reflash is the faster alternative though, of course with a test prior and after restoring your backup you'll of course do of current system00:38
AranelDocScrutinizer: grep conversations didnt return any match, tried gconf /osso/apps/rtcom-messaging-ui:
PaulFertserjacekowski: linking to a patch would be nice00:39
PaulFertserjacekowski: (fixed kernel module)00:39
AranelIn fact It's a very slower alternative for me, since I'm using the same system without flashing for a year and It's still rock-solid, except this little annoying scrollbar recently appeared :|00:39
*** BCMM has joined #maemo00:39
*** smooph has quit IRC00:39
trumeejacekowski: what is this ?00:40
trumeejacekowski:  is this the TI version?00:40
*** smooph has joined #maemo00:40
AranelDocScrutinizer: I guess It's a hard thing to do, but how can I "strace conversations app"?00:40
AranelDocScrutinizer: I really want to solve this issue, instead of reflashing.00:41
jacekowskiPaulFertser: i don't have one00:41
jacekowskiPaulFertser: i patched a binary00:41
DocScrutinizersorry, I'm afk now. I guess somebody else here might take over00:41
PaulFertserjacekowski: the kernel module?00:41
jacekowskiPaulFertser: just to default to region 4 to unlock all frequencies00:41
jacekowskiPaulFertser: yes00:41
Araneloh ok, thanks anyway :|00:42
jacekowskiPaulFertser: power locking is still there00:42
jacekowskiPaulFertser: but fmtxd isn't using it00:42
trumeejacekowski: ?00:42
jacekowskitrumee: dunno00:42
jacekowskitrumee: that's version somebody linked here couple days ago00:42
*** smooph1 has quit IRC00:42
trumeejacekowski: so you have tested that binary?00:42
BCMMwhat is "soft poweroff", referred to in systemui.xml?00:42
PaulFertserjacekowski: i wonder if maemo users have some "community" kernel, then it might be just updated with pr1.3 fixes (minus that strange USB charging tweak), "power" patches on top and hostmode.00:42
PaulFertserjacekowski: of course pr1.3 fixes shouldn't include fmtx locking there.00:43
jacekowskiPaulFertser: it's called kernel power00:43
PaulFertserjacekowski: is it actively maintained?00:43

jacekowskihave you restarted browserd?00:52
trumeejacekowski: i restarted the device00:52

andaxcehteh: my phone provider sold it as with 1GB RAM but it is in fact 256MB and the rest is SWAP. As if it makes no difference. This is really a question as old as Linux but maemo choose the worst possibility herein.01:42
iDontCompcache for the N900 would be great, maybe another time :P01:42
cehtehandax: i know01:42
iDontI've tried to modify the swap notify patch myself, but the patches from Nokia change swapfile.c pretty much01:42
jacekowskinot really01:42
infoboti guess optification is a inventive duct tape workaround to reclaim space in fs root, done due to the fact the partitioning is FUBAR, or,_Deploying_and_Distributing/Installing_under_opt_and_MyDocs, or ""OMG - I wish somebody had looked into FHS and moved /usr to eMMC"", or bullet1,2 and fhs-2.3.html#PURPOSE16 sentence301:42
iDontdon't have enough experience to knwo what I'm doing :P01:42
jacekowskin900 processor isn't fast enough to deal with compression01:42
jacekowskiand it would be slower than reading it from emmc01:43
*** |thunder has joined #maemo01:43

cehtehsome people run it on the G1 iirc01:44
cehtehthe compcache page has some results01:44
*** guardian has quit IRC01:44
cehtehaccessing emmc has more latency and needs more power than compressing/decompressing lzo01:44
*** renato has joined #maemo01:45
cehtehaccessing emmc comes not for free .. there are quite some software layers and hardware stuff involved01:46
andaxiDont: i heard it already helps significantly to move swap to microSD. The data bus is a bottleneck01:46
andaxnot only processor01:47
DocScrutinizermeh, first instance if there were less preloaded applications and those that are were less RAM greedy, then we'd be much happier with 256MB ram - hell my Panasonic toughbook had a 300MHz-P-II mobile and 192MB, and was quite ok for KDE3 (except for OOo :-P)01:47
iDontandex: I've already moved my swap to a dedicated MicroSD partition ;)01:47
javispedrothere's never enough RAM.01:47
javispedroI used the N810 with 128MiB and NO swap.01:48
javispedroand it's not like fremantle is twice in size.01:48
jacekowskireal    0m 2.27s01:48
jacekowskithat's how long it takes to compress 10M file01:48
DocScrutinizerjavispedro: sometimes there's too much RAM. RAM eats power, and has overhead for management as well01:48
khertan_iDont, be carefull moving swap to sd ... if it s too slow it ll use more the cpu and can cause sudden reboot01:48
khertan_iDont, at least it s my own experiences01:48
javispedrojacekowski: 2.27s sounds _a lot_01:49
javispedrojacekowski: can't be01:49
jacekowskiit is01:49
andaxiDont: which class microSD card should it be?01:49
iDontkhertan_: it's class 6, no sudden reboots yet. Also, didn't notice anny accelerated battery drain, though I can't back this up except by my own judgement01:49
javispedroDocScrutinizer: definitely.01:50
cehtehi'd like to have swap on uSD and emmc .. at the same priority then the kernel distributed it evently01:50
jacekowskicehteh: lzo isn't fast enough for this stuff01:50
*** zap has quit IRC01:50
iDontlzo not fast enough?01:50
cehtehbut unfortunally the busybox swapon doesnt support swap priorities01:50
khertan_iDont, personnaly i notice better performance, better battery, and ... sudden reboot with two class 6 micro sd ...01:50
Juozapashow to change stand-by clock background?01:51
khertan_iDont, maybe this is due to sd ... and i should try with an other one01:51
javispedrocehteh: that's not exactly a show stopper01:51
iDontkharten_: that's a shame, maybe the sd card has some bad sectors or something?01:51
khertan_iDont, didn't notice01:51

timeless_is it likely that i could do:01:52
timeless_apt-get source foo01:52
timeless_and end up with:01:52
iDontkhertan_: can't help you, I'm running swap on microsd since PR 1.3 was released and haven't experienced any bad behaviour yet01:52
cehtehsince my filesystems are ext4 i even dont need this crappy loopback and could chroot directly (or do without chroot)01:52
timeless_and then somehow do a "build step"01:52
timeless_which would give me01:52
andaxi would set it to priorize swap on microSD but keep swap on N900, so i still could remove the microSD card without severe problems (would only need to poweroff or '# swapoff')01:53
* cehteh never removes the microsd01:53
javispedro"mkdir foo && mv foo-0.1 foo"? /me didn't understand01:53
khertan_iDont, maybe i should try again with 1.3 ... i ve try with 1.101:53
timeless_javispedro: i'm looking at a directory which has "stuff"01:53
jacekowskiiDont: remove back cover01:53
DocScrutinizerso, has anybody with 1.3 checked if a mere "cp -r /media/mmc1/<some-huge-stuff> MyDocs" still freezes the whole device?01:53
jacekowskiiDont: and you will notice bad behaviour01:54
iDontjacekowski: haha, no thank you ;)01:54
timeless_i don't know what "scripts" have been doing what forms of "black magic'01:54
iDontjacekowski: i had this sd card laying around, so I though I could give it an use01:54

internetishardis there a music id program for maemo?03:11
cehtehDocScrutinizer: you can raid0 and see .. actually with the power kernel and loopback devices i can do a small test ..03:11
DocScrutinizerI'd expect even with dedicated busses/IFs there's a mutual lock for access to eMMC and uSD03:11
internetishardI was envious when an iphone user started playing a song from his phone after exposing it to a ~4sec clip of that song about 30seconds prior03:11
cehtehloopback devices on files on each .. raid0 that and then dd test it03:11
cehtehDocScrutinizer: yeah can test that with this setup, that takes only a few minutes to setup moment03:12

SpeedEvilinternetishard: As I understand it, that's server based.03:13
SpeedEvilinternetishard: It uploads a clip to a server03:13
cehtehjavispedro: but its still linux03:13
DocScrutinizerwe got even a DMA for transfering blocks from IF to RAM, but I guess it's not a per-IF DMA03:13
javispedroon a PC, a hdd controller using a few unneeded museconds of host cpu time would be frowned upon03:13
DocScrutinizerand I dunno id it's at all used for this03:13

alteregoMuelli: oh, then you don't need to install bluetooth dun ..03:53
alteregoMuelli: the N900 can do it by default.03:53
Muellialterego: olry?! I thought I had looked everywhere. I haven't a GUI for that yet. Is there any? If so, could me point me to it?03:54
alteregoMuelli: Settings->Internet Connections->Connections->New03:55
NirtalDocScrutinizer any specific word I can search to find?03:55
Muellii know my N810 can... And I guess the Linux on the N900 is well capable of doing that.03:55
Muellialterego: that fires up the WLAN wizard. In the second page, I can't select anything else than "WLAN"03:55
alteregoHrm, I might be wrong ..03:55

DocScrutinizer if the N900 is not equipped with a data SIM, it may use another GSM/3G phone as a modem to access the network, and act as a Bluetooth DUN client04:04
*** fab has joined #maemo04:04

psycho_oreosraster, I did a dar backup of maemo rootfs, was tinkering around last night and sort of screwed up (it'll boot but with blank screen when is loaded.. So I reflashed it and restored the complete dar file which caused the device to completely malfunction and do several boot loops.. now I'm in the process of sifting through the critical files that shouldn't be overwritten with the files that should be overwritten or otherwise copied to save myself time09:59

timeless_webchatFor most of 2010 Nokia has been encouraging developers to use Qt. To show how seriously we take that decision we not only stopped all Nokia development in other frameworks, we committed to redeveloping key Nokia applications and services that weren’t already in Qt.11:39
johnxVenemo_N900, probably very little. I guess it's nice they've standardized on Qt11:39
timeless_webchatNokia has been working hard on developing in Qt, as evidenced by the introduction of Qt Quick, which makes rich, visual applications and services even easier to develop. We are confident that by focusing on Qt and Qt Quick as our sole application development strategy, we will increase the opportunity for developers, constantly improve the experience for users and extend the joy that people get from a single device.11:39

RobbieThe1stI quite like it though - It's easy to write scripts, is entirely lax about whitespace, and relatively simple to work with. Javascript I also like... But not nearly as much, due to no proper documentation, and poor error debugging12:41
FireFly|n900Venemo_N900, GUI designers have this awesome concept to reduce the typing even more...12:42
FireFly|n900I'm sure jQuery is great for some things12:42
*** FIQ|n900 has quit IRC12:42
Venemo_N900crashanddie_: well I know about lots of guys who earn a fortune with PHP12:42
FireFly|n900And it's neat that it wraps stuff like XHR12:42
Venemo_N900FireFly|n900: indeed, they just generate awful code12:42
RobbieThe1stIt does. I make a mistake and I get "error x on line y".12:42
edheldillike Zoidberg ... errr. Zuckerberg :)12:42
crashanddie_Venemo_N900, I also know a lot of girls who earn a fortune by being prostitutes, doesn't make any of them righteous. Or should we talk about bankers?12:42
Venemo_N900FireFly|n900: I like its effects and UI library the most12:42
Venemo_N900crashanddie_: good point12:43
RobbieThe1stPHP has, if nothing else, an excellent manual with examples of all sorts of things. With javascript, the best you get is half-a-dozen poorly written sites each with different explanations of what should work and what does. Oh, and sites still talking about IE-only stuff12:43
Venemo_N900crashanddie_: btw, the fact that you a lot of those girls, tells something about you :P12:43
FireFly|n900Venemo_N900, the problem with people who learns jQuery as their first "language" is that they don't understand what their function calls does, repeating CSS selectors one after another12:43
crashanddie_RobbieThe1st, if you want a good manual, try Java, or even Perl. Those manuals are miles ahead of PHP12:44
Venemo_N900FireFly|n900: that is true12:44
FireFly|n900Which leads to slow, hard-to-mantain code12:44
FireFly|n900But I'm sure it has its uses, if used correctly :)12:44
Venemo_N900FireFly|n900: agreed :)12:44
crashanddie_old flamewar12:44
crashanddie_I've been a PHP user for quite a few years, I've even committed patches and stuff12:45
crashanddie_but the devs are wankers12:45
crashanddie_who spit on you as soon as you raise questions about the security of the language12:45

timeless_webchatthe apple feature is "don't bother the user from the web browser"12:56
timeless_webchatthe maemo feature is the same12:56
timeless_webchatwhether an app is smart enough to protect its user is thus a per app feature12:56
timeless_webchatham for instance is intentionally not interested in being particularly protective12:56
timeless_webchatthe call app otoh generally requires you to click the green button (gameable -- not actually valid protection)12:57

jacekowskior just closing development?13:16
lardmanjacekowski: seems I jumped to a conclusion not supported by the facts13:16
lardmanso we don't know13:16
timeless_webchatproblems in symbian:13:17
jacekowskii mean like in they develop it internally and then release code when done13:17
timeless_webchat1. way too many incompatible ui toolkits13:17
jacekowskitimeless_webchat: linux does same13:17
timeless_webchat2. just because you picked a given ui toolkit didn't mean you could ship to everything that had that toolkit13:17
jacekowskitimeless_webchat: QT, GTK and couple others13:17
timeless_webchat-- because for some reason there were version breaks or something13:17
jacekowskitimeless_webchat: linux does the same13:17
timeless_webchatjacekowski: =~ s/QT/Qt/g13:17
timeless_webchatjacekowski: linux has better apologists :)13:17
jacekowskiSymbian will continue be developed by its community of programmers around the world, but Nokia will now oversee this process.13:18
timeless_webchat3. the memory model was too complicated for poor programmers13:18
timeless_webchat-- this doesn't mean that it's better on linux, just that most users are more forgiving on desktop (if they're using linux on desktop)13:18
jacekowskitimeless_webchat: complicated?13:19

timeless_webchat-- i'm not saying it's better on Maemo or Linux in general13:21
jacekowskiwell, first phone with real app store was iphone13:21

timeless_webchatbut please remember, we're talking about reasons people don't like writing for it13:29

timeless_webchatyou didn't generally design a phone to swap to death w/ symbian13:34
timeless_webchatwe did w/ the n900 -- it was a marketing requirement13:34
lardmanI mean I see next to no difference between Linux and Symbian, other than Linux is open source and there's lots of code around (both good things), but that doesn't necessarily make any odds to a phone manuf13:34
*** goldbergus has quit IRC13:34

timeless_webchat9. the TCP stack was "different"13:35

timeless_webchatin fact, i hope based on my description you'll understand it *isn't* imo13:36
lardmanno nor I, but it always seemed to me that Linux was not designed for limited resource devices13:36

lardmanWhat I'm trying to establish, in a round about way, is why Nokia have changed the plan re Symbian13:38
timeless_webchatlardman: well13:38
timeless_webchatOpen Source was buzzword compliant13:38
timeless_webchatNokia strives to be buzzword compliant13:38

jacekowskidos had 640kb of ram13:39
timeless_webchatbut really13:39
jacekowskiand it was working13:39
timeless_webchatthe reason to open source was to enable nokia to buy out the other shareholders in symbian13:39

timeless_webchatit wasn't really for buzzword13:39
jacekowskitimeless_webchat: symbian will still be open source according to that article13:39

MohammadAGI'm seeing </certified> on Nokia's repos, maybe I should add that?18:06
alteregoHrm, ~20% improvement.18:06
alteregoWhich is actually what I would have guessed.18:06
alteregoSo 60% CPU usage :/18:07
X-FadeMohammadAG: Yes, maybe that helps.18:07
alteregoavg 50% it would seem.18:07
MohammadAGX-Fade, can I upload an older version of a package?18:07
X-FadeMohammadAG: Yes, you have direct access to the queue. So you can do that.18:08
MohammadAGX-Fade, note the "older"18:08

X-FadeMohammadAG: But what would that solve?18:09
MohammadAGany .service file experts?18:09
MohammadAGX-Fade, it would allow users to see what they're upgrading, instead of the current way18:10
X-FadeMohammadAG: I can wipe the repo if needed.18:10
MohammadAGi.e install version 0 of community package, launch HAM to allow the user to update with a UI18:10
X-FadeMohammadAG: That won't help anything?18:11
MohammadAGit will, the current way involves opening a terminal and forcing installations18:11
X-FadeMohammadAG: The problem you have is that existing packages have been installed from another package domain.18:11

ieatlintwhat jacekowski just said18:55
Aranelin fact, I tried that one too :| It's not showing up all of them, for example, it's not showing up the HTML/CSS files.18:55
Aranelaccording to strace open() only 5 files opened, 2 of them are databases, 3 of them are icons/useless stuff.18:56

jacekowskiIDA is one of the best static analysis tools20:41
jacekowskiand still fails quite often20:42
jacekowskibecause gcc tends to mix data with code and sometimes you end up with function pointers somewhere in data section20:43
jacekowskilike nolo for example20:43
* javispedro ponders20:43
javispedrowhen IDA fails to distinguish text/data its usually trivially visible to human eye20:44

javispedrobut, take a conservative approach20:45
jacekowskibut then you still have 10% that can be code or data20:45
javispedrowhich you then emulate.20:45

MohammadAGlcuk, saw it, but apt doesn't find it, which is weird23:24
keriothat iPhone user has no way to edit photos on the go23:25
lcukMohammadAG, curious23:25
RST38hlcuk: Actually, there are quite a few use scenarios23:25
lcuki know RST38h23:25
* lcuk likes to take pictures of many things with barcodes/info on them23:25
lucentkerio: "because there is no reason to edit photos on the go, I have my iMac to edit photos, silly" or something23:25
lucentyou know what I'm talking about23:25
lcukall sorts of tickets and receipts and maps and things23:25
lucentthere's just no point to a conversation like that23:25
MohammadAGmy printer is connected to my external IP23:25
lcuki have this whole travellog :)23:25
kerio"there is no reason to use a barcode scanner to reach a website that PRINTED RIGHT BELOW THE DAMN POSTER"23:25
MohammadAGi can print otg23:25
RST38hMohammad: You mean, we can print crap to it? =)23:26
MohammadAGRST38h, yes23:26
crashanddiethe whole n900 vs iphone, and "iphone users are idiots" is getting old very quick, lucent23:26
MohammadAGhmm, shit23:26

lcukdoes iphone have video out capabilities yet?23:26
lucentkerio: ha, I like that one23:26
* lcuk might get one if so23:26
keriolcuk: since... the first one?23:26
keriofor videos, at least23:27

keriooh, keynote can definetely use the tv-out nowadays23:27
kerioat least with an ipad23:27
trumeeis it possible to stop N900 offering the sdcard when connecting in mass storage mode?23:27
lucentcrashanddie: I try not to get involved, honest. The guys at work keep getting iPhones and thinking they're so new and interesting, and want to tell me about it. I'm always saying, hey, I had that hardware feature for months now but the software doesn't quite work right, good for you that you have a jailbroken iPhone or whatever23:28
lcukkerio, ipad != mobile phone23:28
keriotrumee: ass rage mode is quite crap23:28
*** hannesw has quit IRC23:28
trumeekerio: ?23:28
lucenttrumee: not that I know of, but you could pop open the back cover and it will have the magnetic sensor to unmount the card23:28
lucenttrumee: should prevent it from getting exported23:28
trumeelucent: yes, i dont want to take out the sdcard23:28
lucentno, just pop open the back cover23:29
nidOhe didnt say take out the card23:29
lucenteven that is kind of annoying everytime23:29
nidOjust take the cover off23:29
lcuklucent, they are interesting23:29
nidOcard = unmounted23:29
lcuki cant wait to run meego on iphone hardware23:29
nidOor just manually unmount the card, i guess23:29
MohammadAG51lcuk, nevermind, broken lists23:29
trumeei have an otterbox and it is pain even to get to the back cover23:29
lucentlcuk: Would that ever happen? I don't know, rockbox team had such difficulty to run on new iPod / iPhone hardware23:29
keriootters ^_^23:29

lcuklucent, it will happen23:30

keriono hardware keyboard, no precise touchscreen23:31
lucentlcuk: I do not see it happening within the product lifetime of an Apple product23:31
lucentalso the multi-touch patents are encumbering to get more precise user control over the interface23:32
lcuklucent, time/motivation/monkeys/keyboards/shakespear etc - once meego portability gets into the swing23:32
lucentlet's hope so!23:32
lcuktheres practically no hardware on the planet that wont be running it23:32
lucentanyhow I'm hopeful for maemo to get injection support23:32
lucentI meant for N900 to have injection support, maemo or meego, whichever23:32
lcuklucent, is this requiring a kernel module modification?23:33
lcuksimilar in principle to the other stuff like hostmode ?23:33
* lcuk is ignorant of tech details of linux network drivers23:33
*** villev has quit IRC23:33
*** Cy8aer has quit IRC23:34
MohammadAG51lcuk, lucent injection works, the packages are under the gpl with no source23:34
lcukahhh yuck23:35
MohammadAG51it's a kernel mod, yes, cracked two of my APs23:35
MohammadAG51though they were WEPs23:35
lucentthe source is the problem for me though23:35
lcukwhen the source emerges would it sit in similar manner to the hen stuff you guys are playing with?23:35
MohammadAG51oh and a friend's AP, he knew about it of course23:35
lucentI do my work and submit to upstream, if you don't send upstream it's like it wasn't even done at all :(23:35
MohammadAG51my school had WEP too, so I couldn't miss out :P23:36
lcuklucent, indeed23:36
lcukthat is the meego way also23:36
*** perlite_ is now known as perlite23:36
lucentthe meego way is to work with upstream, or to ignore them?23:36
MohammadAG51work with them23:36
lucentwant to know where I should focus my efforts anyways, ah okay23:36
MohammadAG51so, how do i set up cups again? :P23:37
DocScrutinizerlcuk: wlan source on h-e-n??23:37
* DocScrutinizer can't see that23:37
lcukDocScrutinizer, no i was asking if its the same principle23:38
lcukand could be organised in similar manner / put together as a patch quilt23:38
DocScrutinizeraiui wlan driver is a module, not built to the kernel23:38
* MohammadAG51 wants to work on the VU kb lights again23:39
MohammadAG51DocScrutinizer, indeed23:39
* lcuk gives MohammadAG51 a torch23:39
lcukright DocScrutinizer - that was the distinction I was trying to work out23:39
DocScrutinizerso you could just create that module for whatever target kernel23:39
MohammadAG51but if you don't have the source? :)23:39
