17:51 <efc> i read a theory a while back that the earth's magnetic field is generated by uranium in the core and that it was just about fissioned out
17:51 <efc> kinda far out there..
17:53 <Rookie_69> Waiting to see what Kyle turns into before deciding whether to race sunday or not...
17:53 <Rookie_69> I thought it was blamed on all the iron in the core.
17:54 <efc> thats the accepted theory
17:56 <Rookie_69> I've never had the opportunity to test the magnetic properties of uranium before.
17:56 <efc> maybe it was the fission keeping the core hot enough to generate the fields, i dunno

19:58 <wdsmia> thats nice PovAddict
19:58 <PovAddict> installed BOINC on three computers at w$%&
19:59 <wdsmia> wish I could do that would 10x my credit
19:59 <PovAddict> it's not like they care about the software running on them...
19:59 <PovAddict> I don't think any has a legal copy of Windows btw
19:59 <Soul_keeper> be carefull
20:00 <Soul_keeper> corporations are known to sue employees for that
20:00 <Soul_keeper> ahhh
20:00 <wdsmia> or just fire them
20:00 <PovAddict> yeah right
20:00 <xcamel> or both
20:00 <wdsmia> yep
20:01 <PovAddict> last week me and another guy were trying to get around yet another activation problem on the pirated Windows 2003 on the server...
20:01 <PovAddict> you really think they'd care about BOINC? :P
20:02 <Soul_keeper> not if you got dirt on them :)
20:03 <PovAddict> I mean, they don't care about installing WGA cracks on the *server* (which hosts Active Directory, DHCP, DNS, mailserver, and probably something else), why'd they care about me installing BOINC on my machine and on two others that nobody's currently using
20:04 <PovAddict> if I were them I'd worry more about the crack program screwing up the server than about BOINC screwing up an otherwise-unused desktop machine
20:05 <wdsmia> you can tell them that when you own the company till them you work on there wim

20:35 <wdsmia> @eddie I used to run like that... but that was almost 30 years ago and had a big nasty army DI chasing me
20:36 <efc> I'd prefer a 20 year old blond college track team instructor, but to each his own..
20:36 <wdsmia> lol
20:37 * wdsmia has socks older then 20 years
20:38 <efc> dad claims he was running 6 min miles in the army but I don't believe it..

20:41 <efc> I could probably run a 6 if not making it meant a tour in 'Nam
20:42 <efc> but under more reasonable circumstances I run a 7
20:42 <efc> but with aforementioned blond 20 year old pacing me, could probably do a few notches better than that
20:45 <wdsmia> lol
20:48 <efc> hard to figure out what pace will just barely not kill me
20:48 <wdsmia> that would be a 1 hr mile for me lol

21:27 <PovAddict> compared to presidential candidates over here
21:27 <Soul_keeper> ic, you're that guy in argentina then ?
21:27 <PovAddict> yeh
21:28 <bigt0242000> well it would be better if ALL the candidates were there
21:28 <Soul_keeper> it's too late for that
21:29 <Soul_keeper> they didn't want ron paul :(
21:29 <bigt0242000> to late for what?
21:29 <Soul_keeper> already had the primaries
21:29 <Soul_keeper> you mean 3rd party candidates ?
21:29 <bigt0242000> yes
21:31 <bigt0242000> esp. nader from the independent and barr from the libertarian party
21:32 <Soul_keeper> ron paul used to be with the libertarian party, he jumped ship tho to try to get elected
21:32 <bigt0242000> yep now he is supporting barr
21:33 <Soul_keeper> he wanted to take back the republican party and return them to their conservative roots i suppose
21:35 <bigt0242000> i don't care for either candidates on tv right now
21:35 <Soul_keeper> i'm voting mccain, obama is way too left, and has a lot of dirt on him
21:36 <bigt0242000> all they're doing is blowing smoke

21:37 <bigt0242000> Missed Votes 24% (306) Sen. Barack Obama [D-IL] since Jan 6, 2005. Ouch!
21:38 <bigt0242000> Missed Votes 18% (738) Sen. John McCain [R-AZ] since Feb 4, 1993. Not to bad.
21:39 <Soul_keeper> obama just shows up and votes "present"
21:39 <Soul_keeper> he's done that a few hundred times, can't decide between yes or no
21:39 <bigt0242000> present and no vote shouldn't even be an option
21:40 <quail> morning all
21:40 <bigt0242000> good evening
21:41 <PovAddict> xcamel: I *just* got a message saying my test email to you couldn't be delivered yet, and that it will try for two more days
21:41 <bigt0242000> XD
21:41 <bigt0242000> never got one back that said it would try for 2 more days
21:42 <PovAddict> if it's a temporary failure, you get one of those after 24 hours
21:42 <PovAddict> then after the 2 days pass, you get another saying basically "message still didn't get through, giving up"
21:42 <bigt0242000> the ones I get back says the postmaster couldn't deliver
21:43 <PovAddict> that's a permanent failure, server gives up immediately

21:59 <bigt0242000> maybe it'll get the "do nothing" congress off the butts and do something useful

22:46 <Soul_keeper> i think she's the best option out of all 4 of these clowns
22:46 <bigt0242000> lol
22:46 <wdsmia> damn Soul_keeper I have new respect for you
22:47 <Soul_keeper> but i trust mccain a lot more than obama, he's "the comfortable old shoe"
22:47 <wdsmia> Palin 2012
22:47 <bigt0242000> mccain will get elected, kick the bucket, then palin takes office
22:47 <Soul_keeper> :)
22:47 <MTughan> I think I'd rather have Bush than Palin...
22:48 <MTughan> And I'm not even American!
22:48 <bigt0242000> i guess they trying to make the US government look better
22:48 <PovAddict> seen on a forum sig: "Canadians are unarmed Americans with free health care"
22:49 <Soul_keeper> lol
22:49 <MTughan> And a hell of a lot more compassion and understanding.
22:49 <Soul_keeper> they are our liberal buddies from the north
22:49 <Soul_keeper> :)
22:49 <bigt0242000> lol
22:49 <MTughan> US just tried to force their politics on everyone. We accept them as they come.
22:49 <MTughan> tries*
22:49 <MTughan> Need present, not past tense...
22:50 <PovAddict> MTughan: one could say "unarmed" is related to "more compassion and understanding" ;)
22:50 <MTughan> And I don't care if everyone here starts hating my ass. :P
22:50 <bigt0242000> well we american try to accept them too
22:50 <MTughan> bigt0242000: But don't you make them American rather than letting them separate into sections?
22:50 <MTughan> At least that's what I've heard, with the "melting pot".
22:51 <bigt0242000> we need term limits on congress
22:51 * PovAddict curses the word "American"
22:51 <bigt0242000> MTughan: well we're kinda split into 3 sections now
22:52 <MTughan> Heh... Any coincidence that I'm listening to "Revolution" by P.O.D.?
22:52 <bigt0242000> PovAddict: lol
22:52 <PovAddict> America is a damned CONTINENT
22:52 <MTughan> Two, actually.
22:52 *** siofwolves has quit IRC
22:52 <PovAddict> whatever; point is it's not the US alone
22:53 <MTughan> No, North and South America? Notice the AMERICA in there?
22:53 <bigt0242000> MTughan: Far Left, Far Right, and everybody else
22:53 <bigt0242000> MTughan: you forgot central america
22:53 <PovAddict> well okay, let's count them separated
22:53 <MTughan> Isn't McCain more left/right than the rest of his party? (I can't keep left and right straight anymore...)
22:53 <MTughan> bigt0242000: Technically, that's North America.
22:53 <PovAddict> you're in North America too
22:53 <bigt0242000> i know im in north america
22:54 <bigt0242000> i live in the SE US
22:54 * wdsmia thinks MTughan would vote for doug and bob mckenzie
22:54 <MTughan> I can technically say that Pov is north of me... :P
22:54 <Soul_keeper> MTughan any coincidence that POD came from my city ... and so did blink 182 that crashed recently ?
22:54 <MTughan> wdsmia: Yeah, eh? Gotta love those two... :D
22:54 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: LA? I don't remember where POD came from now...

22:57 <MTughan> lol, I believe it.
22:58 <bigt0242000> my rep and 2 sens do a decent job
22:58 <MTughan> That's all you can really guarantee. When is your election?
22:59 <bigt0242000> Nov
22:59 <MTughan> Seems like our election will be called and over in less than half the time yours took... :P
23:02 <MTughan> Yep, called September 7th, we're going to the polls on October 14th.
23:02 <bigt0242000> polls are open for 12 hrs takes about a day for all the result to come in. then it's decided unless we have another florida type problem.
23:02 <PovAddict> and you get to vote MTughan?
23:02 <MTughan> Basically 6 and a half weeks.
23:02 <MTughan> PovAddict: Yes. First time.
23:02 <MTughan> bigt0242000: lol, that was Gore and Bush, 2000, right?
23:02 <bigt0242000> yep and again in 2004
23:03 <MTughan> Although Kerry there.
23:03 <bigt0242000> hanging chads i think they called them
23:03 <MTughan> I don't remember hearing about problems in Florida that election...
23:03 <PovAddict> I remember a reporter of a local news program
23:04 <PovAddict> running inside the White House saying "here we are... before the poll for the President... of the World"
23:04 <MTughan> lol...
23:04 <bigt0242000> paper ballots caused issues in 2000, electronic voting machines caused issues in 2004, and i'm guessing both will cause issues this go round
23:05 <wdsmia> count on it
23:06 <wdsmia> been a long week NN all
23:07 <bigt0242000> all the courts had to do was force the voting machine companies to release there souce code. then we would more than likely have a smoother election
23:08 <PovAddict> could be completely legitimate software, but with the database tinkered with after the voting... hard to track that down
23:09 <bigt0242000> well its hard for the entries in the software to make it to the db if the software enters null entries or crashes
23:09 <MTughan> Oh yeah... Did you know that we have a Marijuana party here? Only thing they want to do: legalize marijuana. xD
23:09 <bigt0242000> we have a green party and i have no idea what they want to do
23:15 <Soul_keeper> tree huggers
23:15 <Soul_keeper> their main goal is extermination of the 2 party system, beyond that i doubt they even know what they want
23:16 <bigt0242000> lol
23:17 <PovAddict> in some IRC channel about a programming language (dont remember which), they mentioned some framework, I asked what it was about, and they told me "I think they're still debating that"
23:17 <Soul_keeper> figures
23:17 <bigt0242000> XD
23:29 <bigt0242000> can holloywood make anything more boring? come on a movie about a guy who invented the intermitin windshield wiper

23:36 <bigt0242000> hollywood is desprate. they made a movie about bush.
