03:48 <efc> ok, i need some applesauce in 4 hours

03:48 <CoderForLife> somehow, that's not a phrase I expected

03:53 <efc> so many fancy-pants recipes

03:53 <efc> i want something that involves applesauce, brown sugar, and cinnamon, which are the three ingredients I have

03:54 <CoderForLife> apple cheese crisp

03:54 <CoderForLife> if you got cheese

03:55 <efc> I do, but sounds ambitious

03:55 <CoderForLife> hardly

03:55 <efc> I think I can wing this one

03:56 <CoderForLife> hf

03:56 * efc blames the results on CFL

03:56 <CoderForLife> oh thanks for that

03:57 <CoderForLife> what did I do to deserve that?

03:57 <efc> Nothing. I'll enjoy my unemployment. Thx.

03:57 <CoderForLife> huh?

03:58 * efc sobs unconsolably

03:58 <CoderForLife> sorry about the applesauce and employment situation - I don't think I had anything to do with either one

03:59 <efc> Oh no. You did that and killed GM too.

03:59 <CoderForLife> oic

03:59 <efc> My smoldering American flag has your name all over it

04:00 * CoderForLife goes and throws himself off his new wall

04:00 * efc sits in the bunker, picking de women for their zexual characteriztics, contemplating CFL's role

04:01 <Tank_Master> :)

04:02 <efc> I do wonder about GM/ford/etc

04:03 <efc> i imagine they'll get bailed out sooner or later, probably for more money later

04:05 * CoderForLife climbs back up the hill

04:05 <efc> This stuff is actually pretty good right out of the jar

04:12 * CoderForLife joins #giveacodersomeslack

04:14 <Soul_keeper> dad just set his kitchen on fire

04:14 <efc> :(

04:15 <Soul_keeper> i tell him all the time not to cook things and fall asleep

04:15 <Soul_keeper> he had left oil heating on the stove

04:15 <Soul_keeper> left it so long it combusted, caught all the cabinets on fire and burnt the paint off all the walls

04:16 <Soul_keeper> he burnt his hand up real bad trying to put it out

04:16 <Soul_keeper> his roommate just left taking him to the hospital

04:16 <efc> Hope he's ok, and the cabinets too

04:17 <Soul_keeper> the kitchen is toast, his whole hand is like a giant bubble

04:17 <Soul_keeper> i guess he went to grab the burning pan of oil to take it outside and slipped and fell

04:18 <Soul_keeper> his cowboy boots got no grip

04:18 <efc> How old is he?

04:19 <Soul_keeper> mid 50's i guess

04:20 <efc> Oh ok, not demented then

04:20 <Soul_keeper> he's like a big kid sometimes

04:21 <Tank_Master> hi Soul_keeper

04:21 <Tank_Master> howdy efc

04:31 <efc> moo TM

04:31 <efc> applesauce is pretty good, I guess CFL gets off this time

04:33 <Tank_Master> I have some home made applesause

08:35 <PovAddict> nasa experimenting with network protocols that can handle 10 minutes of latency

08:35 <PovAddict> (like between planets)

08:35 <ELGono> ;)

08:35 <PovAddict> normal TCP/IP would drop the packets in a few seconds...

08:35 <ELGono> good idea

08:35 <ELGono> could also be used on this planet ;)

08:36 <ELGono> friend of mine is down in addis abbeba ...

18:42 <CoderForLife> heh

18:42 <CoderForLife> yup

18:43 <CoderForLife> I happen to have all my funds in money market or cash equivalents

18:43 <PovAddict> instead of actual cash?

18:43 <CoderForLife> and not Lehman Brothers money market

18:43 <CoderForLife> um ,yeah

18:43 <PovAddict> ah

18:44 <CoderForLife> it's like a interest-bearing checking account

18:44 <CoderForLife> I don't have the cash

18:44 <CoderForLife> it's in a retirement account, so I can't take it out

18:44 <CoderForLife> but it's not losing money

18:45 <PovAddict> I have all my funds in cash

18:45 <PovAddict> my mom offered to put it in a time deposit

18:45 <PovAddict> (I can't exactly do it myself)

18:46 * Nickuwo doesn't have funds anywhere

18:46 <PovAddict> I think the word for that is being "broke"

18:46 *** imsaguy has joined #boinc

18:46 <Nickuwo> I think you are right

18:46 * CoderForLife gives Nickuwo teo funds to rub together

18:46 <CoderForLife> er two

18:47 <Nickuwo> erm... thanks...

18:47 <CoderForLife> knock yourself out

18:47 * Nickuwo buys beer with them

18:47 <CoderForLife> you mean, they have value?

18:48 <Nickuwo> the beer market never goes down

18:48 <CoderForLife> heh

18:48 * PovAddict gives Nickuwo a counterfeit $10 (AR) bill

18:48 <PovAddict> er

18:48 <Nickuwo> hehe

18:48 <PovAddict> note?

18:48 <PovAddict> I whatever

18:48 * CoderForLife takes notes

18:48 <PovAddict> ah yeah bill is the other way around

18:49 <PovAddict> wait, bill is also used for... *confused*

18:49 <PovAddict> "A bill is a document demanding payment for an order previously supplied"

18:49 <PovAddict> "A banknote is a form of cash currency, also known as bill in the United States and Canada"

18:49 <PovAddict> how does that not confuse the hell out of everyone?

18:49 <PovAddict> you can use bills to pay your bills?

18:50 <Nickuwo> or a law before its, um, whatever they do with bills to turn them into laws - sign maybe?

18:50 <CoderForLife> especially if the person you're paying is named Bill

18:50 <PovAddict> lol I remember an ad of that

18:50 <PovAddict> someone who finds a guy called Bill in his mail

18:51 <Nickuwo> hehe

18:51 <CoderForLife> the solution is almost no one pays cash

18:51 <CoderForLife> you get a bill, you pay cash

18:51 <CoderForLife> cash consists of bills and change (coins)

18:52 <PovAddict> we have a bit of a coin deficit 'round here

18:52 <CoderForLife> if you give someone more cash than you need to, they give you change

18:52 <CoderForLife> that change can consist of bills and change

18:53 <CoderForLife> see, even the Germans are confused

19:04 *** zombie67 has quit IRC

19:07 <PovAddict> interesting fact...

19:08 <PovAddict> "D. Attenborough pointed out that a large Oak tree sucks multiple tonnes of water out of the ground and lifts it 40 or 50 feet into the air each day - with no moving parts."

19:08 <PovAddict> "A fire engine does the same thing - but using a rawring diesel engine running on purified hydrocarbon energy. And not terribly efficient either."

19:08 <CoderForLife> the firetruck doesn't have te advantage of capillary action

19:09 <PovAddict> then it had a paragraph explaining how the oak tree did it

19:09 <PovAddict> and closing with "Mankind, you have been PWN3D."
