15:03 <mweltin> hey

15:03 <mweltin> how are you Crunch3r

15:04 <Crunch3r> fine and you ?

15:04 <mweltin> I think I realeased the wrong ga.

15:04 <mweltin> its been running for 11 hours

15:04 <hawmps> btw.. Hi Crunch

15:04 <mweltin> should take 7

15:04 <Crunch3r> send you a pm on the board about 3 min ago ... an updated vs 2005 project including the stlport stuff

15:04 <mweltin> ooops

15:05 <mweltin> sweet I'll get on that right away.

15:06 <Crunch3r> tomorrow i'll try the 32 bit windows and start on the ga apps using stlport

15:07 <Crunch3r> btw, if you're using stlport you need to recompile libboinc and libboicapi too otherwise it wont link, therefore i included all needed libs in the project solution

15:08 <Crunch3r> and the best part of it all is that the win64 bruteforce app is now the fastest available :P not even my linux build is faster than that :)

15:09 <mweltin> wow

15:09 <mweltin> there is one thing I need to add to it.

15:09 <mweltin> the prefix is fixed for each workunit, so there is no reason I have to recalc it every time.

15:10 <TM-Work> :P

15:10 <Crunch3r> why pissed ?

15:10 <mweltin> what happened?

15:10 <TM-Work> spent 45 min swaping out a CPU to find out it was bad

15:10 <Crunch3r> lol that happens :P

15:11 <TM-Work> the old P3 got stuck to the heatsink, and the latch on the heatsink would NOT let go of the tab

15:11 <Crunch3r> @markus -> the prefix is fixed for each workunit, so there is no reason I have to recalc it every time. ???

15:11 <TM-Work> the tab eventually brok off

15:12 <mweltin> ouch

15:12 <TM-Work> and so I had to find a new heatsing with al 3 holes in the latch

15:12 <TM-Work> but that one was to big

15:12 <TM-Work> so I had to swap out the bar

15:12 <mweltin> Crunch3r, join #tsp for a second

15:12 <mweltin> excamel suggested it talk about tsp specific stuff htere.

15:13 <TM-Work> then I come to find out some idiot out the cap to close to the socket, so I had to mod the latch

15:13 <TM-Work> all that fork and the "new" cpu was bad

16:58 <ChristmasCoder> my wife found "the last book" that I was missing in the move to this house today

16:58 <zombie67> pov?

16:58 <MTughan> 'Net's out.

16:58 <MTughan> <PovAdct_v2> shit, seems I totally lost net @ home

16:58 <wdsmia> asks MTughan to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

16:58 <MTughan> Hey, it's not me...

16:59 <ChristmasCoder> you asked for it =)

16:59 <zombie67> where is the account key kept, again?

16:59 <MTughan> I think gui_rpc_auth.cfg.

16:59 <MTughan> Account key for what, a BOINC project, or for BOINC Manager?

17:00 <zombie67> no, that is for getting mgr access on a remote machine

17:00 <MTughan> Yeah, gui_rpc_auth.cfg.

17:00 <zombie67> no, that is not what I want

17:00 <MTughan> There is another thing you have to edit to allow access though...

17:00 <zombie67> no

17:00 <zombie67> I want the account key

17:01 <MTughan> The password for logging into BOINC manager?

17:01 <zombie67> the thing you use to log into your account on the project site

17:01 <yoyo[RKN]> account key is in client_project.xml or similar

17:01 <MTughan> Oh, so it is for a project.

17:01 *** ErniJohnson has joined #boinc

17:01 <MTughan> Look at account_*.xml.

17:02 <yoyo[RKN]> yeah this was the name

17:02 <zombie67> the "authenticator" line?

17:02 <ErniJohnson> Wow, I have been asking all day and there is a boinc channel and its sitting on the freenode server :/

17:02 <MTughan> One sec...

17:03 <MTughan> Where were you asking?

17:03 <yoyo[RKN]> it is difficult to find this channel

17:03 <ErniJohnson> Lol, jusy about everywhere . "Boinc? Whats that then@ :-P

17:04 <ChristmasCoder> We are here! We are here! We are here!

17:04 <MTughan> Hehe...

17:04 <ErniJohnson> Well, in that case....

17:05 <yoyo[RKN]> I think I saw it by random in a mail that this channel exists

17:06 <ErniJohnson> I heard it wisspeared softly somewhere

17:06 <ChristmasCoder> I stumbled in here about 2-1/2 years ago - you can never leave

17:06 <ErniJohnson> indeed - a long one - what your method in here for posting long post?

17:06 <xcamel> Em.. there is an easier way...

17:06 <ErniJohnson> Thanks

17:07 *** EL_Gono has quit IRC

17:08 <xcamel> ErniJohnson: how did you install it?

17:08 <ErniJohnson> sh

17:08 <xcamel> ah.. ok.

17:09 <xcamel> it created a ../BOINC directory somewhere?

17:09 <yoyo[RKN]> just run ./run_manager

17:09 <xcamel> just a note.. 5.8.16 is a tad old

17:10 <MTughan> 5.10.28 is the latest version, always available in the title.

17:10 <xcamel> but basically, yoyo is right, although jumping the shark a bit

17:10 <ErniJohnson> oddly no. The orginal file just sits on my desk-top. Itas from there that i run it. However, when I do, the GUI appears quickly and then vanishes I seems to be getting a set of error measssages which I shall attempt to post in a sec

17:11 <ErniJohnson> um..perhaps I shall dl the newist version first and see what happens :-)

17:11 <MTughan> Hey, 5.10.30 for Windows and OS X and 5.10.28 for Linux are made stable... Maybe that was a while ago, but they are now.

17:11 <xcamel> because the desktop isn't the dir where all the files are...

17:12 <xcamel> easy way if I might have the floor for a second...

17:12 <MTughan> xcamel: Apparently there isn't a 5.10.28 release GUI for anything other than Ubuntu...

17:12 <xcamel> dl the latest version

17:12 <ErniJohnson> Thats what I thought to be honest

17:12 <xcamel> MT - yes there is - ub works in mandriva

17:12 <xcamel> and fesora too

17:12 <xcamel> er fedora

17:12 <ErniJohnson> ok, so dl the ubu version?

17:13 <MTughan> Well, it doesn't say that.

17:13 <MTughan> ErniJohnson: Yeah.

17:13 <ErniJohnson> okies :-)

17:13 <xcamel> I kno - but I've been doing this a very long time.

17:13 <xcamel> OK... dl the latest stable linux, and put in in a home dir will proper permissions...

17:14 <xcamel> extract the files (it creates '/BOINC')

17:14 *** BaadBarbarian has joined #boinc

17:14 <xcamel> make a desktop link to the file in that dir and the file 'run_manager'

17:15 <xcamel> (no need to run

17:15 *** BaadBarbarian has quit IRC

17:15 *** Crunch3r has quit IRC

17:16 <xcamel> make sure (edit) run_manager to point to the ../BOINC directory

17:16 <xcamel> and just click on the desktop link and it should run fine...

17:17 <xcamel> that keeps everything in a nice neat dir of it's own, and doesn't spread the working files all over your system...

17:17 <MTughan> Which was always the problem with Windows.

17:18 *** ELGono has joined #boinc

17:18 <ErniJohnson> Opps - I was dling it and sh ing it while you where typing xcamel. sorry but at least it works. now to do it the way you have said which makes a lot more sense - hang on, don't go anywhere - I feel daft questions coming up :-P

17:18 <xcamel> if you run as 'some user' then the real dir will be /home/user/BOINC or something similar...

17:19 <xcamel> daft questions are the best ones...

17:19 <xcamel> brb - nature call

17:21 <xcamel> OK better..

17:22 <ErniJohnson> I swear - if i'd known that linx calls its main dir "home" i would never have called the damn computer that whenm I installed the o/s :-/

17:22 <MTughan> lol

17:22 <MTughan> /home/home?

17:22 <xcamel> sadly, the emerge, portage, and rpms spread boinc all over your box, and makes it a mess to upgrade when you'd like to as new versions come out..

17:23 <ErniJohnson> indeed :-/

17:23 <MTughan> Nice...

17:24 <ErniJohnson> Ic, bear with me - stil;l trying to work out whicjh of this is my real "home" dir. LOL. Kidding

17:24 <xcamel> home is always home - unless you run as root

17:28 <PovAdct_v2> @course, with ircatwork

17:28 <xcamel> ErniJohnson:  got boinc?

17:29 <xcamel> side question... which desktop did you install?

17:29 <MTughan> KDE or GNOME matters?

17:29 <xcamel> boinc_mgr in kde seems to take much less cpu time

17:30 <xcamel> gnome is a hog anyway...

17:30 <MTughan> Really? Odd...

17:30 <xcamel> too much 'handhiolding'

17:36 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

17:36 <MTughan> ln -s <original> <link>

17:36 <PovAdct_v2> the run_manager script

17:36 <PovAdct_v2> MTughan: not that kind of link

17:36 *** BadBarbarian has joined #boinc

17:36 <PovAdct_v2> a "desktop shortcut" - that's environment-dependent

17:39 <ChristmasCoder> thx folks

17:39 <ErniJohnson> I have the run manager script - and I now know I need to create a desktop shortcut to it but still confused as to how to do that. sorry

17:40 <ErniJohnson> bye christmas

17:41 <MTughan> xcamel: How do I set up a Supybot? I've got it installed.

17:44 <MTughan> Nevermind, found it.

17:47 <xcamel> ahh... chicken parm for dinner...

17:47 <MTughan> Nice.

17:48 <xcamel> right click on the desktop...

17:48 <xcamel> click new...

17:49 <xcamel> link to application

17:50 <xcamel> the rest should be fairly obvious

17:50 <MTughan> WTF?

17:50 <MTughan> &nickometer

17:50 <Romulus> MTughan: The "lame nick-o-meter" reading for "MTughan" is 13.9%.

17:50 <mweltin> so what is the down side to allowing too many work units in progress per host?

17:50 <xcamel> lol

17:51 <xcamel> mweltin: missed deadlines

17:51 <mweltin> ok

17:51 <mweltin> and too few?

17:51 <xcamel> or credit hogging

17:51 <xcamel> MTughan: use the supybot wizard

17:52 <MTughan> That's what I'm going through right now, and how I noticed that.

17:52 <xcamel> run it in a protected user/dir (and NOT as root)

17:52 <MTughan> Already done.

17:52 <ErniJohnson> Xcamel: Sorry, I managed to work that out - however am getting an error message which I was trying to understand when double clicking the new icion :/

17:53 <xcamel> what is the message?

17:53 *** yoyo[RKN] has quit IRC

17:53 <mweltin> what is the escape char in a sql query?

17:53 <ErniJohnson> Authorization failed connecting to running client.

17:53 <ErniJohnson> Make sure you start this program in the same directory as the client.

17:54 <xcamel> <ctl><alt><fire glock>

17:54 <mweltin> I useing the ops page to query users

17:54 <mweltin> with an additional clauses, which I assume are where clauses

17:54 <xcamel> Ah... set the working dir in the properties section of the link

17:54 <mweltin> but name liek '%something%' errors out

17:55 <xcamel> and mark the app executable

17:55 <ErniJohnson> xcamel. Thats what i thought - which is what i have done but still getting that message

17:56 <xcamel> did you edit run_manager?

17:56 <ErniJohnson> yep - let me post the paths

17:57 <ErniJohnson> Command = home/home/BOINC/run_manager'

17:57 <xcamel> cd "<working dir here>" && exec ./boincmgr $@

17:57 <ErniJohnson> Working path = /home/home/BOINC

17:58 <xcamel> that was the line in 'run_manager'

17:59 <MTughan> xcamel: Where'd you get the Weather plugin for Romulus? Is it included with Supybot?

18:00 <ErniJohnson> Sorry Xcamel - very new to linux and yet to read the noob guides, was lr=eaving that till after a few projects I need to do - The command paths/path in properties for the desk-top link are:

18:00 <ErniJohnson> Command: '/home/home/BOINC/run_manager' and Work path: /home/home/BOINC

18:00 <xcamel> MT - yes

18:00 <xcamel> in the darcs versions...

18:01 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

18:02 <xcamel> erni - I would cut /BOINC from /home/home/ and move it to just /home and delete the unneeded dir

18:04 <ErniJohnson> xcamel: Still getting the same error message :/

18:05 <xcamel> what is the contents of run_manager

18:05 <xcamel> ?

18:06 <ErniJohnson> Checking :-)

18:07 <xcamel> s/b one line looking something like >> cd "<working dir here>" && exec ./boincmgr $@

18:07 <ErniJohnson> cd "/home/home/BOINC" && exec ./boincmgr $@

18:08 <xcamel> open a console, cd to /home/home/BOINC, and just type ./run_manager

18:08 <xcamel> see if it runs

18:08 <ErniJohnson> ok

18:09 <wdsmia> re-hi

18:10 <xcamel> I think you missed my comment to you last night...

18:10 <xcamel> living in Iowa must be really aggravating at the moment...

18:11 <wdsmia> yep every 4 years same thing

18:11 <ErniJohnson> xcamel. weird. no it doesn't

18:11 <xcamel> error?

18:11 <ErniJohnson> same error message

18:12 <xcamel> ls that dir and make sure both boinc, and boincmgr are in there...

18:12 <xcamel> ls, or ls -l

18:12 <ErniJohnson> ok checkling

18:13 <ErniJohnson> yep both there :-/

18:14 <xcamel> might be permissions... make sure your user has exec rights for that dir...

18:15 <ErniJohnson> checking

18:15 <ErniJohnson> Sorry about this

18:15 <xcamel> no problem..

18:15 <xcamel> it's what we do...

18:16 <xcamel> owner/group should match your user

18:17 <xcamel> did you tell me what desktop you were running?

18:19 <ErniJohnson> Sorry xcamel - permissions are fine - kde running on mandriva

18:20 <xcamel> ...thinking....

18:21 <ErniJohnson> me to xcamel - im getting a feeling forthis now and it makes no sense. What about a re-install

18:21 <xcamel> I was getting to that...

18:22 <ErniJohnson> Whast the best way to uninstall? i understand Linux doesn't have a registry so delete?

18:22 <xcamel> delete the BOINC dir, and move the .sh file to just /home and then run it

18:22 <ErniJohnson> okies

18:23 <mweltin> ErniJohnson, you are right linux doesn't have a registry in a windows sense.

18:23 <xcamel> it will create a new BOINC dir to start from

18:23 <xcamel> nope... no registry to worry about...

18:23 <ErniJohnson> so, just to check - by running the sh file doing an SH?

18:24 <mweltin> ErniJohnson, you can just delete what you have built.  Sometimes if you run "make install" or install from a package you may have to hunt down where the program was installed.

18:24 <xcamel> >> sh

18:24 <mweltin> but often that is not too hard.

18:24 <ErniJohnson> Thanks

18:24 <ErniJohnson> I love the lack of a registery :-)

18:25 <mweltin> you are in good hands with xcamel so I'll let you get back to him.

18:25 <mweltin> yes linux is nice.

18:25 <xcamel> looking at my last exteact - you get 10 files and a 'locale' directory...

18:25 <xcamel> er... extract even

18:25 <PovAdct_v2> I'll be on-and-off if you need me

18:25 <PovAdct_v2> still wonder wtf is going on with my home connection

18:26 <LumpyLarry> isp under dos attack?

18:26 * LumpyLarry or could it be the mountain snows here smacking PovAdct_v2 home connection

18:27 <xcamel> 'lo Larry..

18:27 <MTughan> He's in Argentina. :P

18:27 <LumpyLarry> lo jay

18:27 <LumpyLarry> i know

18:27 <MTughan> lol

18:27 <ErniJohnson> Sigh - still getting the same error message. Ran with: /home/home/BOINC/run_manager

18:27 <PovAdct_v2> no snow in a big radius

18:27 <PovAdct_v2> ErniJohnson: what's the error again?

18:27 <MTughan> Damn... I hate it when my web browser crashes.

18:27 <ErniJohnson> two secs :-)

18:28 <ErniJohnson> Authorization failed connecting to running client.

18:28 <ErniJohnson> Make sure you start this program in the same directory as the client.

18:28 <PovAdct_v2> type: pidof boinc

18:28 <ErniJohnson> Oddly when I ran it form the desktop the first time I diodnt get that :/

18:29 <xcamel> open konqueror and look at your home dir...

18:29 <xcamel> /home/home/BOINC is going to be a problem

18:31 <xcamel> everything should be in /home/BOINC

18:31 <xcamel> sounds like you have one where needs to be run

18:32 <PovAdct_v2> xcamel: what I suspect is he still has the client running from a previous attempt, which internally has a different password stored

18:32 <xcamel> in a console, type killall boinc to fix that...

18:33 <xcamel> no PoV... it hasn't been run yet... it's an install/perms problem...

18:33 <xcamel> erni - PoV is really good at figuring these things out also...

18:34 <ErniJohnson> Sorry, was looking around. actaully xcamel i did mange to get a version running earlier but on the desktop so this may very well be my fault - sorry. Running kill command

18:34 <xcamel> bbiab..

18:35 * ErniJohnson hides head in shame and having now got it working runns away quickly

18:36 <ErniJohnson> lol, thank you :-)

18:36 <PovAdct_v2> cool

19:42 <Romulus> wdsmia - You are nothing but a villainous bag of full-gorged poopy.

19:42 <xcamel> that's better..

19:44 <xcamel> arf..

19:44 <Tank_Master> LOL

19:44 <Tank_Master> bot only knows how to talk trash

19:48 <xcamel> I need a plugin that can do this:

19:49 <xcamel> [NNTN] Fight Over Heat Makes Wife Hot

19:49 <xcamel> "A woman who was angry because her husband wanted her to turn up the heat pulled out a gun and shot their flat-screen TV while he cowered behind a pillow, Macomb County authorities say."

19:49 <xcamel> news of the wierd...

19:50 <Soul_keeper> fun

19:50 <Soul_keeper> why not just an rss news feed of whatever is giving that news ?

19:51 <PovAdct_v2> you can get just headings

19:51 <xcamel> I tried that once... the rss feeds almost wrecked the channel

19:51 <PovAdct_v2> &list rss

19:51 <Romulus> PovAdct_v2: add, announce, info, remove, and rss

19:51 <PovAdct_v2> if not using announce, it won't bother on its own

19:52 <xcamel> the rss plugin is pooched, IIRC

19:54 <Tank_Master> XP SP3 RC refresh is now avalible

19:56 <xcamel> oh really... what did they break?

20:09 <xcamel> nope - that was old511

20:10 <xcamel> I'm Jay

20:10 <Fjodor> xcamel: Oh yes, that's correct. Then you must be the guy with the animals :-)

20:12 <xcamel> that's me

20:12 <Fjodor> :-)

20:12 <Fjodor> How are you?

20:12 <xcamel> you're up in Norway, right?

20:12 <xcamel> nope.. Denmark..

20:13 <xcamel> way northern denmark...

20:13 <Fjodor> A bit further south... In Denmark, to be specific. But I guess it's all the same the further away from here you are :-)

20:13 *** infinisoft has joined #boinc

20:13 <Fjodor> Ah, you remembered :-)

20:13 <xcamel> I remember..

20:13 <Fjodor> I am much obliged :-)

20:14 <PovAdct_v2> :)

20:15 <Fjodor> But actually, it's more or less in the middle of denmark, but it only stretches around 400Km, so north, south, middle is much the same :-)

20:16 <xcamel> Alborg..

20:16 <xcamel> or nearby

20:18 <Fjodor> Comparing to the US, lborg is very nearby, but in local terms, I'm much further to the south, namely in rhus. But it's very impressive that you actually know names of the Danish cities :-)

20:18 <xcamel> greatly enjoyed a train trip around Denmark about 10 years ago...

20:19 <xcamel> on a very old (antique) steam train out of Copenhagen

20:20 <Fjodor> IIRC, you are that sort of guy. One who knows stuff that is completely useless in most situations, but then enjoys when it, out of the blue, can be applied :-)

20:20 <Fjodor> Ok, interesting

20:20 <Fjodor> For me, trains in Denmark are a nuissance. They are invariably late, and there are never enough seats

20:20 <xcamel> then we spent a week roaming around St Petersburg

20:21 <Fjodor> I have always wanted to see the winter palace, but then again, I don't travel much...

20:24 <Fjodor> However, I did once dream that I was in St. Petersburg. I didn't know the name of the city i dreamt I was in, but I remembered that the river flowing through it was called Neva. So upon wakening, I found an atlas, and then surmised that I had been dreaming about being in St. Ptersburg ;-)

20:25 <xcamel> we did Pushkin, Kathrines palace, Peterhof etc etc..

20:26 <xcamel> 2 full days in the hermitage

20:27 <Fjodor> In high school, we had to take classes in a second language apart from English, and I chose Russian. We were all set to take an excursion to St. Petersburg, but too few signed up, so I envy you

20:28 *** PovAdct_v2 has quit IRC

20:32 <xcamel> Я этого не хорошо на русском

20:32 <xcamel> :-)

20:32 <Fjodor> xcamel: Ok, that just rendered as garbage text in my window. Was there any sense to it?

20:33 <xcamel> it was Cyrillic

20:33 <xcamel> sorry if you don't have the font..

20:34 <Fjodor> xcamel: Ah, ok. I'm afraid my IRC client only renders text in the codepage I have set for the channel (which seems stupid, but hen again, how to discern it?)

20:35 <xcamel> it was a generally pointless statement about my really bad russian...

20:36 <xcamel> forget it.

20:36 <Fjodor> xcamel: Well, it served me right for not setting the codepage to utf-8 :-)

20:37 <Fjodor> Could you transliterate, and then I'll see if I can translate?

20:44 *** ErniJohnson has quit IRC

20:47 <MTughan> Interesting...

20:47 <Romulus> Title: Apple (at

20:53 <Fjodor> xcamel: But as I said, I took Russian in High school. Next April I turn 29, so you are most probably more knowledgeable in that language than me ;-)

20:55 <xcamel> I only ever learned a tiny bit of it...

20:57 <xcamel> I had some russian friends who tried to teach me... never got very far.

20:59 <Fjodor> It's actually quite interesting from a learning perspective, that I met two Russian sailors while drinking in Aabenraa (while in high school and taking Russian), and I was able to converse with them quite fluently (and they taught me to drink vodka their way), but nowadays, I can't seem to remember even simple words...

20:59 <MTughan> lol

20:59 <xcamel> installing the xp sp3 rc - so far so good...

21:00 <MTughan> It's in RC now? Nice...

21:00 <Soul_keeper> lol

21:01 <Fjodor> xcamel: Are they including that deeply flawed and back-door'ed elliptic curves rng in xp too, or is it just vista?

21:02 <xcamel> unknown - but I hate the hell out of vista...

21:02 <MTughan> OS X, Linux, Unix, BSD, take your pick of alternate OSes. Heck, even XP.

21:02 <Fjodor> xcamel: "a brother in arms" :-) Have a look at :-)

21:03 <MTughan> How 'bout Win3.1? xD

21:03 <Fjodor> MTughan: Yes, XP is about to be an "Alternate OS" now, isn't it ? :-)

21:03 <MTughan> I'm on OS X, that's why.

21:04 <MTughan> If you want a really close but alternate OS to Windows, go with ReactOS.

21:05 <Fjodor> MTughan: I do think I have the 11 floppy disk set of win3.11 laying around somewhere. Now, if I could only get a set of Trumpet Winsock :-) (and a floppy drive) :-D

21:05 <MTughan> lol

21:05 <MTughan> I've got a VM...

21:05 <MTughan> XP loves it, Vista's as slow as molasses.

21:07 <Fjodor> MTughan: OSX is nice, though, and ReactOS is fighting windmills. It's an honourable cause, but to get full compatibility, you need to hit yourself over the head with a sledge hammer repeatedly everytime you get i _good_ idea...

21:08 <MTughan> Hehe... I do that to myself with a physics textbook. Good enough? :P

21:08 <Fjodor> MTughan: Acknowledged :-) Are you involved with ReactOS?

21:08 <MTughan> Nope.

21:09 <Fjodor> Oki

21:09 <Bad_At_Home> he just likes it

21:09 <Bad_At_Home> lol

21:09 <MTughan> Heh, I've never even used it. :P

21:09 <Bad_At_Home> hi MT & Mw

21:09 <MTughan> 'lo BAH

21:09 <Bad_At_Home> hitting your self in the head ?

21:10 <MTughan> Hehe...

21:10 <xcamel> well... it's restarting now...

21:10 <Bad_At_Home> re hi Xcamel

21:10 <xcamel> 'lo BB

21:11 <Fjodor> Bad_At_Home, MTughan: I like ReactOS in the same way as I like the XScreensaver demo called BSOD. Crash messages from most known OS's. My own take on emulating any Win OS would be to get the colour of the crash screen just right...

21:11 <MTughan> Hey, I got that too...

21:12 <xcamel> I modified the code in win 3.1 to produce a "pink screen of death" with black text

21:13 <xcamel> god that was long ago...

21:13 <Soul_keeper> did you know that hitler ingested bulgarian peasant fecsis to combat the laxzatives in his pain killers ?

21:21 <MTughan> How do they remind you of that? lol

21:21 <MTughan> And no.

21:21 <xcamel> that is an instant conversation killer

21:22 <xcamel> banned topics: religion, politics, sex.

21:22 <xcamel> mostly.

21:22 <Fjodor> Well, it says in one of the letters to the communities that in heaven, the light of the moon is as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun is as strong as the 7 times the light of the sun in seven days
