00:15 <efc> I'm more hesitant to get the version of the week for email clients

02:42 <efc> interesting. Wish they'd open source the specs for the cards in general..

02:43 <Soul_keeper> you mean the hardware ?

02:43 <Soul_keeper> i don't ...

02:44 <Soul_keeper> all software and interfacing with hardware should be open, hardware is there business

02:45 <efc> the cards

02:45 <Romulus> can't.. see.. too.. bright...

02:45 <Soul_keeper> what do you mean /

02:45 <efc> well i mean describe it well enough somebody can write decent drivers

02:45 <Soul_keeper> they have

02:45 <Soul_keeper> drivers are being written now

02:45 <efc> If you say so

02:46 <efc> Thought they were binary only for linux

02:46 <efc> But I never had to mess with it

02:46 <Soul_keeper> 3d support on the R500 has already been confirmed in testing by one coder

02:46 <Soul_keeper> it takes time to write drivers from the ground up

02:47 <Soul_keeper> they only released the internal docs a few months ago

02:47 <efc> Oh, ok. For years every body had to reverse engineer or use the crappy binaries.

02:47 <Soul_keeper> yeah

13:56 <Romulus> Any SouthPark fans out there?

13:56 <Tank_Master> no

13:56 <freelarry> NO Romulus

13:56 <Tank_Master> only the liberal scums watch SP

13:56 <Tank_Master> lol

13:57 * freelarry statement like that makes me want to satrt the chipper and shredder and invite Romulus to do upclose internal investigation

13:57 <Tank_Master> hehe

13:58 * freelarry humm better go take a muscle relaxer before neck really starts twinging at me --- deep breath -- calm -- deep breath --- oh better exhale too

13:58 <freelarry> ;)

13:59 <Tank_Master> and stay away from the liberal brainwashing tube

14:00 <freelarry> lol

14:00 <freelarry> not a problem when trying to draft - non-confrontational letter to legislators and trooper internal riview board

14:00 <Tank_Master> you know something is wrong when they tout themselves as "fair and ballanced"

14:01 <Tank_Master> and they run compains "proving" so

14:01 <freelarry> shouldn't take more that a 1000 redrafts before i'm satisfied

14:01 <Tank_Master> lol

14:01 <Tank_Master> sounds like w@#$

14:02 <freelarry> as for proof well ticket was issued by officer that was doing same actions while in front of me - then performing unsafe driving to get behind me

14:02 <freelarry> all in an unmarked/stealth car

14:03 <Tank_Master> lol

14:03 <freelarry> so far in front of me i couldn't read the license plate

14:03 <freelarry> so general baiting of public to get an infraction

14:04 <freelarry> this is what i have to word into letters

14:04 <Tank_Master> ahh, gl

14:05 <Tank_Master> hopefully there is still SOME good out there

14:05 <freelarry> yeah - got to go back and get into my nuclear panner mode of thinking again to present it -- i hate that mode of thought

14:05 <freelarry> almost as bad as lawyerisum

14:14 <Tank_Master> it should would be nice to have new nuclear plants...

14:19 *** Celelaptop has quit IRC

14:20 <freelarry> lol they would have around here if liberals and environmentalist hadn't shut down WHOOPS program in WA a few decades ago

14:21 <Tank_Master> true

14:21 <Tank_Master> would be another 4 plants

14:22 <freelarry> yeah and a place i might have considered working for when i left navy nuclear program

14:22 <freelarry> but to late for that

14:22 <Tank_Master> yeah

14:23 <Tank_Master> I never got why the envirnmentals dont like newclear

14:23 <freelarry> hey Tank_Master you mind me trying to send a file to you of letter notes for your input

14:23 <Tank_Master> it would mean the shutdown of gass and coal plants

14:23 <Tank_Master> I guess ;)

14:24 <freelarry> the thought of loonnngggg term waste from fuel rods and operations - they used scare science to convince every one the raise in water temperatures for rivers also

14:25 <Tank_Master> but we can protect againce that now

14:25 <freelarry> storage and disposal of high level radioactive waste still a problem as people dont want it reburied where it came from originally

14:25 <Tank_Master> they could always reporcess it

14:25 <freelarry> even if encapsulated in glass

14:25 <Tank_Master> that would be a lot less waste

14:26 <freelarry> true but repossing also generates some wast

14:26 <Tank_Master> lol

14:26 <Tank_Master> but less

14:27 <freelarry> have you been following the mess that going on at hanford cleanup site

14:27 <Tank_Master> no

14:27 <freelarry> every time they start to make progress - the pols start crying it costs to much and then want to fine the doe and contractors

14:28 <Tank_Master> heh

14:28 *** Celelibi has joined #boinc

14:28 <Tank_Master> in other words, someone want to get money for no work

14:28 <freelarry> and place more and more roadblocks and lawsuits in any attempt they come up with to make the goals the pols have set in place

14:29 <freelarry> want the work done for free more like it or for them to pay them and do the work for free

14:29 <freelarry> think later is closer

14:30 <Tank_Master> or for them to get paid and not do any work till they get paided more

14:30 <freelarry> lol well thats what the lawsuits fare for i guess

14:30 <Tank_Master> :)

14:33 <freelarry> Tank_Master trying to send dcc of letter notes

14:33 <freelarry> you might get good laugh

14:33 <Tank_Master> doesnt seem to be working

14:34 <freelarry> humm wonder if i need to set a port again -  somehow router got reset to factory defaults during a power interuption yesterday

14:35 <freelarry> sending request awaiting replie but no activity

14:36 <Tank_Master> Accepting send

16:20 <Tank_Master> wdsmia_w - why r they closing the bridges?

16:21 <wdsmia_w> Based on the latest projections from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, city officials believe Saylorville Lake will overflow some time today and send water rushing down the Des Moines River into the downtown area. The bridges are expected to be covered by water.

16:22 <jackygrahamez> but you know how to swim right :-d

16:48 <KathrynM> :-)

16:49 <KathrynM> amazing what a new camera can do

16:49 <KathrynM> http://esladventuresinphotos.wordpress.com/

16:49 <Romulus> Title: ESL Teaching (at esladventuresinphotos.wordpress.com)

16:50 <PovAddict> I have a camera that came with two manuals apparently...

16:50 <MTughan> Well Superlink@Technion is still having app issues it seems...

16:51 <PovAddict> I'd say they really thought it well... since you can point and shoot without having to read anything (like with any camera), but it still has enough features to need splitting into a basic manual and an expert manual

16:51 <Tank_Master> nice pic, km

16:51 <KathrynM> thanks TM

16:51 <KathrynM> My manual is in Korean....  thankfully there's a pdf of the English version on the web

16:52 <KathrynM> Camera was on sale, came with a 1 gig memory card, case and tripod

16:52 <PovAddict> wow

16:52 <KathrynM> yup

16:52 <PovAddict> cameras used to come with a 16MB memory card

16:52 <Tank_Master> my camera has a 2gb card

16:52 <MTughan> When we get camera's, we still get the 16MB card...

16:52 <KathrynM> so now I have 2 of the 1 gig cards and a 128 mb

16:52 <MTughan> Although we all get 4GB.

16:53 <KathrynM> Not sure how much built in memory is in the camera

16:53 <KathrynM> does video with sound

16:53 <KathrynM> I'm like a little kid with a new toy

16:53 <Tank_Master> 2gb is the largest they make for xD last I checked

16:53 <PovAddict> KathrynM: the built-in memory is particularly important for video

16:54 <PovAddict> KathrynM: if your memory card isn't fast enough to save the video in real time while you record, the limit to how much you can record at a time is the internal (fast) memory

16:54 <KathrynM> thx

16:54 <KathrynM> I'll have to find out

16:54 *** Celelaptop has joined #boinc

16:54 <KathrynM> I debated between a video camera and a new digital.  Decided I was tired of my Kodak.

16:54 <PovAddict> (given a fast SD memory, you could record until the whole GB is filled)

16:55 <KathrynM> Click back on that blog to see the difference.

16:55 <PovAddict> DA is adding actually useful information to Trac now

16:56 <KathrynM> no way

16:56 <KathrynM> must be a mistake

16:56 <Tank_Master> must be someone impersonating him

16:56 <Tank_Master> I didnt think he was capible of such an act

16:57 <Tank_Master> ill bbl, lunch time

16:58 <MTughan> Gah... My sister can't figure out what I mean by click on the column title for sorting info in iTunes...

17:11 <jackygrahamez> I didn't know you were blond

17:11 <KathrynM> dishwater blond

17:11 <jackygrahamez> ahh

17:11 <KathrynM> that makes a difference?

17:12 <PovAddict> uh oh

17:12 <PovAddict> I grabbed the cookies again :)

17:12 <KathrynM> I'm closer to brown than blond :)

17:12 <KathrynM> PovAddict, get some carrots or something

17:12 <PovAddict> but

17:12 <KathrynM> it's 6:12 am and I'm feeling like cucumbers

17:12 <jackygrahamez> They say Gentlemen prefer blonds

17:12 <PovAddict> cookies

17:12 <KathrynM> I think I've been around my gp too long

17:13 <KathrynM> what kind of cookies?

17:13 <PovAddict> lol

17:13 <KathrynM> heh, I just offered to make an offline mirror of someone's blog using wget because he didn't think he could figure it out

17:14 * KathrynM has firmly crossed the line into nerdville

17:14 * Tank_Master dosent want to know what KathrynM has planed for those cucumbers

17:15 * KathrynM thinks Tank_Master needs to wash his mind out with soap :)

17:15 <Tank_Master> lol

17:15 <xcamel> not very organized, but it looks like it's going to get bigger...

17:15 <Tank_Master> o.O?

17:17 <Tank_Master> we need rain

17:17 * KathrynM hopes the rain holds off about 5 more hours here

17:17 <Tank_Master> it hasnt rain a good rain in a few hrs now

17:17 <PovAddict> lol hrs

17:18 <Tank_Master> :)

17:18 <PovAddict> KathrynM: how close to w!#$ do you live?

17:18 <KathrynM> right next door

17:18 <PovAddict> ah great

17:19 <KathrynM> sometimes

17:19 <PovAddict> so if some day you don't go (like if you're sick), you can still hear the kids? :)

17:19 <PovAddict> that must be fun

17:19 <KathrynM> don't go to w*@^????

17:19 <KathrynM> you think we actually have sick time?

17:19 <PovAddict> you never got sick enough to get away from it?

17:20 <KathrynM> I've taught with no voice, running out of the class because I've had to puke, coughing up both lungs, etc

17:20 <PovAddict> :(

17:20 <KathrynM> we teach no matter what's wrong with us.  unless we're in the hospital

17:20 <KathrynM> and even then, when the doc says no work for another week, you go to work

17:20 <PovAddict> hero teachers (?)

17:20 <PovAddict> teaching no matter what

17:20 <KathrynM> no, stupid korean culture

17:21 <PovAddict> superteacher?

17:21 <PovAddict> ahh

17:21 <Tank_Master> "get the pop sick" teachers

17:21 <PovAddict> korean culture is ignoring what the doctor says about not going to w#$%?

17:22 <KathrynM> yup

17:22 * CoderForLife peeks in

17:22 <Tank_Master> strange

17:22 * KathrynM waves to CoderForLife

17:22 * PovAddict waves a cookie

17:22 * CoderForLife waves through the crack in the door

17:22 <KathrynM> moms send kids to school sick, which is why the teachers are always sick

17:22 * Tank_Master pokes CoderForLife in the eye and starts chanting "14! 14! 14!"
