00:23 <FreeLarry58> Soul_keeper are you sure its not just the tv/radio playing in next room - or in some cases the background music on some comp games?

00:24 <jasong2> Either way, Larry, it's a real problem.  I've been suicidal in the past.  The important thing, SoulK is to get help quick

00:24 <jasong2> Do you have someone around where you live that you could talk to?

00:24 <FreeLarry58> hummm gong on 20+ years with same tendancy here - the help offered was worse

00:25 <FreeLarry58> involuntary commitment not the solution

00:25 <jasong2> Good point, but suicidal tendencies need to be dealt with in some way

00:25 <FreeLarry58> yup have to find socially acceptable outlet

00:26 <FreeLarry58> and from experience even uttering it around anyone is dangerous nowdays

00:26 *** MTughan_ has joined #boinc

00:27 <jasong2> Since it's voices he's talking about, I think medication is definitely needed.  If it involved depression, SoulK might simply need therapy.

00:27 <jasong2> I've suffered from hallucinations in the past, and it can be really dangerous

00:27 <FreeLarry58> everyone has  - voices - its just which is predominate in thought process

00:28 <jasong2> Yeah, but if they're telling you to kill yourself, something's gone bad wrong

00:28 <FreeLarry58> thats mostly the voice of depression - it also the one that says should live by myself alone in woods

00:29 <FreeLarry58> another way to run away basically

00:29 <jasong2> You still here, SoulK?

00:29 *** MTughan has quit IRC

00:29 <FreeLarry58> think he may be out as his message was an hour ago

00:32 <FreeLarry58> jasong2 my read on his request is slight depression - based upon my experience in past

00:32 <jasong2> Possibly, but I've had two people in my life commit suicide, so it worries me

17:41 <CoderForLife> I haven't the vocabulary

17:41 <Tank_Master> freedom od speech hasnt been squashed *yet*

17:42 <CoderForLife> can you imagine the Fairness Doctrine in #boinc?

17:42 <Tank_Master> only if DA gets onership of this channel

17:42 <CoderForLife> that onership as in onerous?

17:43 <xcamel> going to the rally?

17:44 <xcamel> from my cold dead hands, baby....

17:44 <CoderForLife> I am actually one person who could get a parking space...

17:45 <CoderForLife> since the rally is at Lunken Airport, that's were our ON-Flight company is and the corporate jets -  I could park at ON-Flight

17:45 <CoderForLife> but, no, I'm not going

17:46 <Tank_Master> what rally?

17:46 <CoderForLife> McCain/Palin

17:46 <Tank_Master> ahh

17:46 <Tank_Master> anyone heard of the game "darkspace"?

17:47 <CoderForLife> new one?

17:47 <Tank_Master> they have a link in their downloads section for a BOINC skin :D

17:47 <CoderForLife> yup

17:48 <CoderForLife> this place is full of alien life forms, so that fits...

17:48 <Tank_Master> is a DarkSpace skin package for the BOINC client. It is a DS looking theme for seti@home. (Extract it to your BOINC folder)

17:48 <Tank_Master> yeah, it does, still supprising though

17:48 <Tank_Master> not that it matters if you dont use the simple view

17:50 <CoderForLife> nothing is simple

17:50 <Tank_Master> nop

17:50 <Tank_Master> nope*

17:57 <PovAddict> heh

17:59 <xcamel> logical palindrome

18:00 * CoderForLife sighs

18:02 <xcamel> the wacky factor is a direct function of the number of days to the election

18:03 <CoderForLife> sometimes my heart gets troubled at the prospect of where things might wind up

18:21 <zombie67> hi!

18:23 <xcamel> RutRhoo Inc. Makers of quality parachutes.

18:25 <xcamel>

18:25 <Romulus> Title: Welcome to (at

18:30 <CoderForLife> Good job, Ann

18:31 <zombie67> it is clear, obama cozied up to just about every left wing radical he could, during his early years.  I am sure it was not because he necessarily agreed with their radical POV.  Instead, I am sure he was using them to further his career.  Now it's coming back to haunt him.

18:31 <zombie67> Still, obama will win the election anyway

18:31 <Tank_Master> which sucks

18:32 <CoderForLife> haunt?  Like in Casper the Friendly Ghost?  I'm see no one scared on the left.

18:32 <zombie67> I made that prediction when he beat clinton.  Beating the clinton machine is huge!  McCain had no chance against that.

18:33 <zombie67> er, "has no chance"

18:33 <zombie67> ;)

18:33 <CoderForLife> I was worried for Obummer; too many people horizontal in the wake of the Clintons

18:34 <xcamel> O'bomber will lose.

18:35 <CoderForLife> The polls are all screwed up, for sure

18:35 <CoderForLife> ObomberWannabe

18:36 <jasong2> People are talking about how Obama could be the first black president.  The question in my mind is,"How white would Obama have to be, genetically speaking, before he would no longer qualify as the first black president?" (if elected)

18:36 <xcamel> this time in 2004, JF'nK was ahead by 7 points

18:37 <CoderForLife> Bill Clinton already claimed that title

18:37 <xcamel> ditto Sore/Loserman

18:37 <CoderForLife> the other day Rudy was saying how wrong the polls were in his NY races

18:37 <jasong2> Maybe the reason white people will be outnumbered by blacks in 2050 is because they take half-breeds as a whole black person. (I'm not using half-breeds as a racial slur, I just couldn't think of a better word)

18:38 <CoderForLife> typically overtstating his Democratic opponents leads by at least 8 points or so

18:39 <xcamel> lately it has been an 8-10% dem oversampling

18:40 <CoderForLife> jasong2: I always thought the term was "mulatto", but that may be offensive to some

18:41 <CoderForLife> yeah, I can see how it may be offensive
