Q: Meaningful tag wikis/excerpt

BraiamI've seen a bunch of approved tag wiki's and excerpt that really, really don't follow any of the guidelines for Tag wiki's/excerpt and are run of the mill man/wikipedia/project page dumps. This is not useful, but the worse part is that there are people approving them and the editor thinks he's do...

1 hour later…
so what is new in 4.4.3
The 3.
a lot
@jrg yes to?
did they finally do the application control thing?
1:20 AM
They fixed a whack of bugs.
A lot of them are related to the camera and battery.
But seriously, I didn't spend hundreds of $$$ buying a Nexus device so that Sprint users could be the first to benefit from updates.
@NathanOsman so... I thought that google rolled out the updates... but it is carrier based?
They release the updates, yes, but they're doing it with Sprint customers first.
1:39 AM

Yep. Someday at least.
Pretty sure you have to be 18 to be an explorer though :-/

@Danatela ^^
post your question link
Q: How do I implement pidgin hide groups feature

DanatelaSince pidgin developers refused to implement subject of the question, I attended myself to start doing the patch that will implement that feature. There is a patch that does this for libpurple but it's hardcoded and I need the option to hide/show groups at run time, like any other messenger does....

@Danatela sorry, i'm weak in programming side :(
thanks for reading though
could you explain me how to make it better? I even made example answer but it was closed =(
so I can't even offer a bounty, I suppose

Q: Lets remove the tools, crash, freeze and troubleshooting tags the right way™

BraiamWell, this is not your run off the mill tag removal request, but a petition to also close the questions with these tags. Questions tagged with such tags tend to be totally worthless, unclear and impossible to give a concise and precise answer that we could call THE answer. So, for the next 30 day...

The below command sudo tcpdump -Aq -i lo udp port 1234 returns: E..".J@.@.U~.........v.....!HELLO How can I discard the E..".J@...

hey all, I know configuration files a setup differently depending on the developer, but I'm wondering if there is a way to use an environment variable within a .conf file. Specifically snort.conf (if anyone has any experience with snort)
does somebody know this?
Q: Why `dpkg -S /var/lib/dpkg` shows "base-files, dpkg"?

Avinash RajI'm curious to know which package provides the /var/lib/dpkg directory, so i run this command $ dpkg -S /var/lib/dpkg base-files, dpkg: /var/lib/dpkg The resulted output displays the package which provides /var/lib/dpkg along with base-files string like the above. $ dpkg -S /var/lib/aptitude...

4:25 AM
@sadmicrowave as in? What do you mean "use an environment variable with a .conf file"?
@sadmicrowave snort is as powerful as confusing it can get, I would suggest just using the defaults
heres my question in some more detail:

what is the appropriate IDE to develop such apps as Pidgin? Vim? Emacs?
