08:22 <CoderForLife> morning xcamel

08:29 * xcamel yawns

08:33 <CoderForLife> hopefully the BabyGate furor is over today

08:36 <xcamel> idiotic, eh?

08:37 <CoderForLife> very - then Alan Colmes decided he'd fall on the other side of that sword

08:37 <xcamel> 2005 or 2006 picture

08:38 <xcamel> the only 'furor' is left wing moonbats angry and grasping at straws..

09:00 <xcamel> a bit stiff from walking around the fair all day yesterday..

09:02 <CoderForLife> too much exercise - bad for ya =)

09:02 <xcamel> and I have to work on 'the wall' today...

09:03 * CoderForLife grumbles

09:07 <xcamel> lol

09:07 <CoderForLife> tomorrow...

09:09 <ELGono>

09:09 <ELGono> hehe somebody didn't made his homework ;)

09:11 <DerMeister> wtf?!?

09:12 <xcamel> not sure I even want to know..

09:12 <CoderForLife> lol - hacked

09:12 <ELGono> site is being 0wn3d

09:12 <ELGono> phun stuff inside <META content="Microsoft Word 11" name=Originator><LINK

09:12 <CoderForLife> sure looks that way

09:13 <DerMeister> What's the purpose of this machine anyway? Never heared of it...

09:13 <CoderForLife> used MS Word to create the page

09:13 <ELGono> indees

09:13 <ELGono> indeed

09:14 <ELGono> thats real wierd for a h4X0R

09:14 <CoderForLife> yup

09:16 <xcamel> work hax? kinda juvenile...

09:17 <ELGono> besides, it was a joomla running there before hehe

09:17 <CoderForLife> hence the exploit

09:20 <xcamel> it's getting to be like having a playground full of children, and one allways thinks he can get away with taking a pi$$ behind the closest tree...

09:24 <KathrynM> wow

09:24 <KathrynM>

09:24 <Romulus> Title: Sharp Home (at

09:24 <KathrynM> a friend of mine from high school is working on this

09:24 <KathrynM> she's starting a post doc soon

09:25 <CoderForLife> neat

09:25 <KathrynM> moving to minnesota from Northwestern where she just finished her PhD

09:26 <KathrynM> her sister is brilliant too.

09:26 <KathrynM> I think she got her PhD in math from U Chicago

09:28 <xcamel> nice.. but a bit over my head...

09:29 <KathrynM> don't fee bad.  I need a telescope to see it

09:29 <xcamel>

09:29 <Romulus> Title: APOD: 2008 September 1 - CG4: A Ruptured Cometary Globule (at

09:31 <xcamel> somehow I'm just not getting my head around the value of detecting magnetic polarization using submilimeter radio astronomy

09:32 <CoderForLife> you're supposed to say "above my pay grade" now, xcamel =)

09:32 <KathrynM> lol

09:32 <KathrynM> that's why they pay megan the big bucks

09:33 <xcamel> just couldn't seem to find the 'money line' in all that.

09:34 *** [B^S]rene_mayer has joined #boinc

09:35 <xcamel> like studying the infrared reflectivity of butterfly wings...

09:35 <xcamel> "because we can"

09:37 <CoderForLife> Isn't that the lesson from "Jurassic Park"?  Just because we *can* do a thing doesn't mean we *must* do a thing?

09:37 <KathrynM> ah yes

09:37 <CoderForLife> "You've bred velociraptors?!"

09:38 <KathrynM> excellent movie

17:22 <xcamel> "wall done"

17:22 <CoderForLife> congrats

17:22 <CoderForLife> I'd like to know how that feels

17:24 <xcamel> um... sore.

17:24 <xcamel> and um... more sore.

17:24 <CoderForLife> my pain is centered in my hip pocket

17:25 <CoderForLife> and my stomach

17:25 <efc> ? Finish your wall?

17:25 <CoderForLife> and my head

17:25 <CoderForLife> xcamel was building a wall

17:25 <efc> The Great Wall of Deep Seated Slope Failure?

17:25 <xcamel> finished fixing it after a 50% collapse

17:26 <xcamel> fallen wall of china.

17:26 <CoderForLife> my wall hasn't _________ing started yet

17:26 <xcamel> last fall...all that rain...wall fall down...go boom.

17:26 <CoderForLife> web cam is stuck in a 10:00am time warp - fix is coming later

17:27 <efc> Concrete block wall? with vents?

17:27 <CoderForLife> whose?

17:27 <Romulus> hmm... whose is that, CoderForLife

17:29 <efc> Xcamel's Civil Engineering Hall of Shame one

17:29 <efc> though yours is of interest too

17:30 <CoderForLife> mine will (if ever built) be Allan Block with geogrid

17:30 <efc> Those huge pseudostone blocks?

17:31 <CoderForLife> not so huge

17:31 <CoderForLife> not so pseudostone

17:31 <efc> I guess it was xcamel that sent the link to these blocks that were like 2 feet across and 1 foot high

17:31 <CoderForLife> here's my contractor's web site

17:31 <Romulus> Title: Home (at

17:32 <efc> I was thinking of how I might pour a concrete dome for my fallout shelter

17:32 <CoderForLife> it would make a nice tomb

17:32 <efc> Could be easier to excavate down a bit, pour concrete then, use the earth as a mold

17:33 <CoderForLife> have you seen where they bury trailors?

17:33 <efc> Nuhuh, like FEMA superfund trailors?

17:33 <CoderForLife> no - trailer designed to be fallout shelters

17:34 <efc> Ah

17:34 <CoderForLife> interconnect

17:34 <CoderForLife> vertical shafts for access

17:34 <efc> Sounds like a fashion trend for the post-apocalypse

17:35 <efc> I'd have it more for a tornado shelter but being nuke proof is a nice bonus

17:41 <efc> Also I'd have a place to store my dates

17:41 <CoderForLife> dates?

17:42 <Soul_keeper> lol

17:58 <PovAddict> did it fry your modem?

17:59 <xcamel> mine were smaller blocks

18:00 <efc3> seems to be the telco side that fried.

18:02 <xcamel> off for a walk..

19:10 <KathrynM> nice

19:10 <KathrynM> how are the four legged creatures doing?

19:12 <xcamel> good..

19:13 <xcamel> the part that caved in was under the screen porch... about 5' high and 20' long

19:15 *** ELGono has joined #boinc

19:17 <efc3> Hope Hannah doesn't come to Savanah..

19:17 *** Aeternus has quit IRC

19:17 <efc3> 10 years or so they did an evacuation of that city for a storm that didn't hit. but the evacuation was a disaster in its own right.

19:20 *** [RKN]frost has quit IRC

19:27 <xcamel> you are going to get that one efc..

19:29 <efc3> there's only really one way out of S (I16), last time it clogged up terribly and everywhere it goes, it was causing gridlock here 250 miles away

19:29 <efc3> or maybe i'm thinking of Alberta

19:35 <xcamel> hurricane alberta?

19:37 <efc3> just a tropical storm, but it parked over georgia and caused 100 year type floods

19:37 <efc3> in 94

19:52 <PovAddict> LHC@Home will have a load of work next week

19:55 <xcamel> cool..

19:56 <PovAddict> "We should have a load of work next week. This coincides nicely with the actual start of the LHC which this project has helped build. As the LHC is such a large machine there will be plenty of work need to fine tune the magnets once it is up and running so were not done yet."

20:00 *** efc3 has quit IRC

20:05 <Soul_keeper> can run my aircon for an hour at 60 and it's still 86 degrees in here ...

20:10 <xcamel> heat happens.

20:11 <PovAddict> <- my forum signature is back

20:11 <PovAddict> I finally got round to re-configuring my webserver...

20:12 <Soul_keeper> do webservers happen too ?

20:15 <KathrynM> only if you don't think about them

20:22 <Soul_keeper> :)

20:22 <xcamel> especially if you forget them...

20:23 <CoderForLife> re-hi

20:23 <PovAddict> speaking of webserver config... :P

20:23 <CoderForLife> web cam updating once again

20:23 <PovAddict> did you untangle your two Apaches, CFL?

20:23 <CoderForLife> not fully

20:24 <CoderForLife> but I need to

20:24 <CoderForLife> been working on Other Things

20:25 <CoderForLife> suffering a bit this evening from pre-wall day stress, and how angry I'll be if they don't show up tomorrow

20:27 <CoderForLife> &monologue

20:27 <Romulus> CoderForLife: Your current monologue is at least 5 lines long.

20:27 <PovAddict> why are you worrying now? don't think about them not coming

20:28 <CoderForLife> I'm worried that they'll continue the unbroken string of broken promises

20:28 <PovAddict> optimist point of view: you're being a pessimist worrying about "how angry you'll be if they don't show up", assume they will show up

20:29 <PovAddict> pessimist point of view: why worry about that now? save your anger for tomorrow when you see they don't show up

20:29 <PovAddict> (note 'when', not 'if', in the pessimist)

20:30 <CoderForLife> I appreciate the advice - there's more to the story

20:30 <PovAddict> so they have a history of breaking promises?

20:30 <CoderForLife> they said they'd deliver equipment last Friday - didn't show

20:31 <CoderForLife> I sat home from w@#%

20:31 <CoderForLife> for instance

20:31 <Soul_keeper> fun

20:31 <CoderForLife> again, more to the story

20:31 <CoderForLife> I'm sure it will be just fine

20:33 <CoderForLife> he'll probably be eager to open up the hillside with rain from Gustav, Hanna and Ike coming

20:34 <CoderForLife> but I digress

20:35 <CoderForLife> I need to sleep, so that we get on with it sooner

20:35 <CoderForLife> thanks for "listening" folks
