This is a short letter exchange with the PyGTK+ people:
You do realize you can download the reference and tutorial tarballs for offline browsing, right?
Yes. It just happens that this was my thought process:
"Well, I'm home, let's see if this time nut works right on my computer"
"Good, it's notifying me via upsc and upsmon"
"Now let's fire up knutclient"
"Shit, it doesn't work"
"tar zxvmf knutclient*gz"
"grep -r LISTVAR knutclient*"
"it should be working, why doesn't it?"
"ah, the protocol... it's changed"
"let's try to hack knutclient"
"./configure: error, you are missing some kind of shit you don't know here to get, and you don't have net access to resort to apt-get"
"well, let's develop a gui app that lets me see nice gauges"
"......crap, everything works okay, i'm missing the gui, fire up glade"
"... how do i load glade file?"
"locate pygtk | grep examples"
"............30 hours after..........."
