Haiku OS needs you!
« on: August 29, 2012, 11:46:42 am »
Hey,

I am asssuming most of you have not heard of haiku os (http://haiku-os.org) it's a open source operating system which was developed when BeOS stopped (in 2000 i think?) I love the OS and since I'm looking to use it and develop for it I asked them if I could translate it into Na'vi. They set it up in the translations. I don't know how many if anyone would be interested in helping translate, it's a pretty large task and I'd love help erm If you want to reply here and I'll give some instructions (pointless explaining unless people actually want to translate).

Please help if you can!

Thanks,
Jessica.

Haiku is a very nice and indeed poetic operating system. I wouldn't be against translating it, but how can this be done in an organized way?

I also thought that something was potentially on the rails about Diaspora. Translation efforts would be fragmented eventually.

Hey,

Thanks for offering to help! I feel stuck here faced with quite a challenging project. Check back here and i'll see if i can write an easyish guide to joining and translating.

As for diaspora, don't worry I've not given up or even put it on the back burner I'm struggling to set it up it's driving me crazy (you'd think they'd make it a bit easier huh?) Erm I may need to go to the IRC channel and get help

Having just finished this night a unusual week coding weird stuff, I think  will be able to help you work and getting our Na'vi diaspora and having a Na'vi Haiku running.

Basically, this week made me learn to take a step back and think positive on badly documented yet good projects. For having learned Lisp (that's OK, parentheses just kind of give you headaches), Oz-Mozart (that's NOT OK, a language certainly used by 30 people around the globe designed to make you depressive), Yasl (brainf*cking, that's not even documented anywhere else than inside an OpenBSD man page not available online!!!) and Windows kernel debugging (without the symbols, it's more fun, haha... Kill me.), I feel like Diaspora and it's Ruby modules will be much easier. No idea for Haiku. ;D
* Tsmuktengan now goes to bed, listening to Na'vi music to avoid having programmer nightmares...
