08:08 <KathrynM> how are the animals?

08:11 <xcamel> fine

08:11 <xcamel> lost all the baby turkeys though

08:11 <KathrynM> :(

08:12 <xcamel> as-of-yet unidentified virus.

08:12 <xcamel> didn't affect any of the other birds.

08:13 <KathrynM> awwwww :(

08:13 <KathrynM> I've got a sick guinea pig right now.

08:24 <xcamel> any idea what might be wrong?

08:25 <KathrynM> she's not eating or drinking.  she's also had some bleeding.  vet thinks she might have eaten something that scratched up her intestines

08:25 <xcamel> ouch

08:26 <KathrynM> poor little thing.

08:26 <xcamel> indeed.

08:26 <KathrynM> I've had her in the last three days.  I think the injections hurt me more than her.

08:26 <KathrynM> at least it isn't too expensive to take her in.  15 dollar a vist

08:26 <KathrynM> visit

08:26 <xcamel> mild clotting agent?

08:26 <KathrynM> dunno what they gave her.

08:26 <xcamel> and some antibiotics..

08:27 <KathrynM> plus they gave me some antibiotics they ground up and I have to give them to her 3x a day.  I disolve them in water and use an oral syringe.  she's not a big fan of them.

08:30 <xcamel> most anti's are pretty gross.

08:31 <KathrynM> I learned to swallow pills really young because I couldn't stand the fake bubblegum tasting antibiotics

08:31 <xcamel> ditto

08:31 <KathrynM> speaking of which, time to give her the meds.

08:31 <KathrynM> bbiab

08:54 <xcamel> I hope she feels better soon..

13:35 <quail> how are you?

13:35 <CoderForLife> OK, you?

13:35 <quail> not bad thanks

13:35 <CoderForLife> just about to walk out to the street, to get the mail, and look for our water meter

13:35 <quail> what you been up to today there?

13:36 <quail> kewl, look for water meter?

13:36 <CoderForLife> we put down a couple of layers of strand board on the front yard, to toughen up the surface for construction traffic, and spread the load

13:37 <quail> ah

13:38 <CoderForLife> we're going to try to find our water meter, to find the cut-off valve, in case the strand board isn't enough to protect the water line

13:39 <CoderForLife> if we have much of a leak in front, we'll lose the *front* hill

13:39 <quail> oh not good

13:40 <CoderForLife> This was the weekend I had hoped to be at the local Java symposium

13:41 <CoderForLife>

13:43 <desti> 1000$?

13:44 <CoderForLife> yeah, $995 if you just show up without a group, with early-bird registration, and without having been to one before

13:44 <CoderForLife> er without early*

13:45 <CoderForLife> and it's worth the time and money investmnet

13:45 <xcamel> or with late?

13:46 <CoderForLife> what was the late-bird get, I wonder

13:46 <quail> CoderForLife: you not going to it this year?

13:46 <quail> CoderForLife: the old dried out worm :-P

13:46 <CoderForLife> no - I am working on prepping for construction to start next week, couldn't afford the 2-1/2 days

13:47 <CoderForLife> went to it 5 straight years

13:47 <quail> :-)

13:48 <quail> have you been a guest speaker at any of them CoderForLife

14:24 <CoderForLife> my next door neighbor just realized that there will be *trucks* on the driveway, delivering materials to my house

14:25 <quail> I just walked back into the room with pizza

14:25 <CoderForLife> trucks!

14:25 <CoderForLife> men, in trucks!

14:25 <CoderForLife> did I realize that the driveway is on fill dirt?!

14:28 * quail sends CoderForLife the 'men at work' song :-P

14:45 <CoderForLife> they just realized that all this is serious business

14:46 <quail> who the neighbours?

15:39 <efc> Its too terrible to imagine! Your deep-seated slope failure line is very strong.

15:39 <efc> Your honest-contractor line.. I cannot find it

15:40 <efc> looks like Xcamel got it a little while ago

15:40 <CoderForLife> what about my lifeline??  My lifeline???

16:06 <efc> I used to have some shareware called Stormtracker

16:07 <efc> exactly what it was good for, I'm not sure. You could look at historical storm tracts.

16:26 <xcamel> yup

16:26 <xcamel> little ones still popping up..

16:29 <efc> Trying to find this place with the 8 acre lake.. maybe it will be like my dream. 50 feet of head and couple thousand gallons/minute flow.

16:29 <efc> Or like CFL's nightmare.

18:51 <Tank_Master> a*

18:59 <CoderForLife> as opposed to no one looking at it until Monday

19:01 <CoderForLife> truth is, if the compressor is gone, then I'll have to call the home warranty company for replacement - since it would only cost me $55 (above my premium)

19:02 <CoderForLife> I'll give Ron first look at it

19:05 *** Ageless93 has joined #boinc

19:06 <CoderForLife> hey Ageless93

19:06 <Ageless93> meh

19:06 <Ageless93> anyone know a good way to trap a mouse without a mouse trap?

19:06 <CoderForLife> depends on what you mean by mousetrap

19:07 <Ageless93> there's one walking around my living room, going into my rabbit and guinea pig cages and eating their food. I don't like that. Selina (our cat) knows there's a mouse, but she hasn't caught it yet.

19:07 <CoderForLife> I had a bunch eating from a bag of birdseed by jumping down in the top, so I emptied the bag, put it back, and the next day I had a bag of mice

19:08 <CoderForLife> they didn't feel so good from the long fall

19:09 <Ageless93> yeah well, I don't have a mousetrap (the one with cheese and the very tight spring set). And it being Sunday tomorrow (well, today), I can't go to the hardware store either and get one.

19:11 <CoderForLife> I assume the cages are occupied by the proper occupants as well?

19:12 <Ageless93> yes. I noticed it tonight while watching TV, saw something moving out the corner of my eye.

19:12 <Ageless93> was the mouse trying to climb into the guinea pig cage to eat her food.

19:13 <Ageless93> woke up the cat, but by the time she was ready, the mouse was gone

19:13 <CoderForLife> how is the mouse getting in?  block access?

19:13 <Ageless93> through the walls.

19:13 <Ageless93> very old flat here, double walls with no insulation

19:14 <CoderForLife> set up a tube system so that the mouse gets deposited right in front of cat?

19:14 <Ageless93> lol

19:14 <PovAddict> or in her mouth

19:14 <Ageless93> I first have to find the hole that it comes through.

19:14 <CoderForLife> woomp

19:14 <CoderForLife> yeah

19:15 <Ageless93> I tried putting alunium foil into the small holes where the central heating pipes enter the room, but I doubt a mouse fits through those holes.

19:15 <Ageless93> a pencil didn't fit... so would a mouse then fit?

19:16 <Ageless93> Selina will probably catch it in the middle of the night and bring it to us to show... she always does that. brrrr, mouse in bed

19:16 <CoderForLife> ick

19:16 <Ageless93> that's one way to sleep alone ;)

19:20 <PovAddict> buy a mousetrap...

19:20 <PovAddict> :)

19:20 <Ageless93> mr. obvious

19:21 <Ageless93> it's 1.20am on a Sunday, we're in The Netherlands. All stores are closed (and rightfully so).

19:22 <Ageless93> I got elastic bands though... and two old CPUs. I could probably build one if I were technically challenged.

19:22 <Ageless93> ;)

19:24 <Ageless93> anyway, I just remembered I had promised someone I'd be here last night (Friday), but I went to bed early and had totally forgotten. I hope he reads backlogs. I'm still thinking.

21:03 <CoderForLife> you are allocated only so many heartbeats in life - don't use them all up on foolish things like exercise

21:04 <efc> you know, I could probably keep up with the olympic women's marathoners for about 1 minute..

21:04 <efc> So no chance of chasing one down I guess

21:05 <CoderForLife> I'd guess that's a big no
