00:52 <zombie67> or rather a couple of exit doors
00:52 <zombie67> one was the normal one, required a swipe card
00:52 <zombie67> the other was a simple push door, that set off the alarm
00:53 <zombie67> guess how many times each day idiots went through the wrong one?
00:55 <zombie67> oh, and that alarm would go off for a full 5 minutes. No way to turn it off.

05:42 <ELGono> hehe like the anti-vir guys coding most of the virus stuff itself ;)
05:42 <ELGono> in my opinion the only working perpetuum mobile working so far ;)
05:49 <CoderForLife> you get what you pay for
05:56 <CoderForLife> that's like paying QA people to find bugs - you'll have an underground economy spring up of QA people giving money to developers to create bugs to be found - instead of increasing quality you'll be funding decreasing quality - if your pay for bugs, you'll get bugs
05:57 <CoderForLife> pay developers for lines of code, and
05:57 <CoderForLife> you'll
05:57 <CoderForLife> get

06:18 <CoderForLife> can't seem
06:18 <ELGono> just uploaded for ya
06:19 <ELGono> The secret history of the walkman revealed: Paul Johnson of
06:19 <ELGono> Jacksonville, Fla invented this one-tube radio (powered by two dry
06:19 <ELGono> cells) in 1957, to keep him entertained while he did yard-work. In terms
06:19 <ELGono> of design aesthetics, I'm willing to say that this is the coolest,
06:19 <ELGono> mad-scientist-looking-est headset ever to grace the head of a human.
06:19 <CoderForLife> lol
06:20 <CoderForLife> did he have any hair left after that? heh
06:20 <ELGono> hehehe
06:21 <ELGono> so thats why dads hair has gone
06:22 <CoderForLife> thankfully for you, it's not genetics =)
06:23 <CoderForLife> I'm sure the cell phone...
06:23 <ELGono> will do the rest
06:24 <ELGono> blood pressure rising ... i get angry if someone reminds me of my cell phone company
06:24 <CoderForLife> lol
06:24 <CoderForLife> many bad health effects
06:25 <ELGono> half a year of fighting to get out of contract
06:25 <ELGono> last week they called me again for another special offer
06:25 <CoderForLife> if you fight long enough, the contract will expire on it's own
06:27 <ELGono> i send them a fax for quitting ... and they waited 3 weeks to answer that i was too late
06:27 <ELGono> sent it 2 weeks before deadline
06:27 <CoderForLife> I guess FAX doesn't carry the legal weight of a postmark
06:27 <ELGono> after that it automatically extends one year
06:27 <ELGono> in germany it does
06:27 <CoderForLife> ah
06:27 <CoderForLife> the the US it doesn't
06:28 <CoderForLife> in the
06:28 <ELGono> but they said my signature wasn't readable

06:28 <CoderForLife> readable
06:28 <CoderForLife> lol
06:28 <ELGono> then they offered me a 200euro discount, cause i'm costumer since 10 years
06:28 *** Aruzo has quit IRC

06:29 <ELGono> no way to get the contract papers in my hand first to read it

06:29 <CoderForLife> I'd just gather your evidence, tell them you're walking via registered mail, and walk
06:29 <ELGono> just a bunch of bandits
06:30 <ELGono> i told them to *offensive speach*

06:31 <ELGono> and going to post it on a blog

15:05 <Samizdat> Running a BOINC app for 60 seconds gives me only 40 seconds of indicated cpu time, might the cpu be going bad?

15:33 <MTughan> What CPU do you have? For Linux, that's fairly low.
15:35 <DerMeister> Do you have the Boinc manager running? It tends to consume a few seconds CPU time per wall-clock minute, especially when the results-tab is active.
15:36 <Samizdat> aye, running Manager

15:55 <xcamel> that was mighty fast
15:56 <xcamel> got the old xconfig back in play
15:56 <xcamel> sweeeet!
15:56 <MTughan> xcamel: You're currently op. :)
15:57 <xcamel> gottaproblemwiddat?
15:57 <MTughan> Nope, just you usually deop yourself.
15:57 <xcamel> I feeling power mad...
15:58 <MTughan> In that case, maybe I do have a problem with it... ;)
15:58 <xcamel> can't type to save my a** today..
15:58 *** xcamel sets mode: -o xcamel
15:59 <Samizdat> Is there such thing as a Linux DTS-HD Master Audio decoding solution?
15:59 <ELGono> well dudes, off for today ... have a nice sunday evening
15:59 <Samizdat> Adios
16:00 <MTughan> Samizdat: No idea.
16:01 <Samizdat> plenty of Windoze stuff around, but no open source
16:02 <Samizdat> at least last time I checked ffmpeg didn't support it yet
16:03 <MTughan> Not that I endorse Windows stuff, but can Wine run any of it?
16:03 <Samizdat> damn good question
16:03 <Romulus> Title: WineHQ - Wine Application Database (at appdb.winehq.org)
16:04 <Samizdat> I run some sweet apps in Wine, not least foobar2000
16:04 <MTughan> Yep.
16:04 * MTughan is currently trying Windows 7
16:04 <MTughan> Not a bad OS overall. Definitely faster than Vista.
16:04 <Samizdat> Arcsoft is the best candidate of which I know, but without kicking out the $ all you get is trialware
16:05 <Samizdat> done missed the beta boat
16:05 <MTughan> Heh.
16:06 <Samizdat> you dual-boot Linux?
16:08 <MTughan> Yes.
16:08 <Samizdat> cool
16:09 <MTughan> The desktop triple-boots Vista, Win7, and Fedora 7, although I haven't booted Fedora since the hardware upgrade.
16:09 <Samizdat> I'm getting around to it, haven't mustered the courage yet.
16:09 <MTughan> And my laptop dual-boots Win7 and Fedora 8.
16:09 <Samizdat> nice
16:09 <Samizdat> I'm an old Windows hand, but just flat tired of it.
16:09 <Samizdat> dig Linux
16:09 <MTughan> I'd get around to a quadruple boot, but I don't have enough HDD space. :P
16:10 <Samizdat> Linux makes you *think*.
16:10 <Samizdat> ah
16:10 <MTughan> 4th would probably be a Debian based distro, maybe Ubuntu.
16:10 <Samizdat> Windows is all about figuring out quirky GUIs that whose apps would probably be a lot simpler to learn even by the most cliphobic.
16:11 <MTughan> I love Mac OS X though. Unix command line, but great development model.
16:12 <MTughan> Straight from NeXTstep. I haven't tried GNUstep, although I want to at some point.
16:12 <Samizdat> gotta admit, I find Unix and its CTRL-This and CTRL-That bit daunting
16:12 <xcamel> hmm.. an astropulse wu running hrs..
16:12 <MTughan> Ctrl-D to exit a shell? :P
16:12 <MTughan> Well, to print an EOL anyway.
16:12 <xcamel> make that 100+

16:32 <xcamel> good deal..
16:33 <Soul_keeper> nice
16:33 <Tank_Master> was $200 for a 300GB raptor
16:33 <Soul_keeper> raptors are my favorite :)
16:33 <Tank_Master> same here :P
16:33 <Tank_Master> I also has $215 in best buy gift cards :P

18:28 <MTughan> Gah, that's the second time that's happened today... And it's only with Freenode.
18:29 <Tank_Master> lol
18:29 <jasong> What happened with Freenode?
18:29 <MTughan> * Disconnected (An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine).
18:30 <MTughan> Then it will try to connect again, fail, then a second time will go through.
18:30 <jasong> GAHHH!!! The machines have free will!!!
18:30 <jasong> jk
18:31 <MTughan> Actually, I'm starting to wonder if it's my firewall..
18:32 <jasong> Hey, if a machine gets free will and decides it wants to "Praise the Lord," who do you think would freak out more, Christians or atheists?

19:46 <jasong> How do you make a thumb drive bootable while using a Linux OS? Even though I'm installing Damn Small Linux, the instructions are for Windows?
19:46 <jasong> - second ?
19:47 <MTughan> I know Fedora has tools for F9 and later to do it. I'm not quite sure if they apply to non-Fedora ISOs, but they probably could.
19:48 <jasong> I'm in Ubuntu. Dealing with Fedora was getting a bit stressful, though hindsight tells me the problem might have actually been my hard drive
19:49 <MTughan> Have you tried Googling?
19:50 <jasong> Yeah, but I figured I'd try a multi-pronged attack on the problem ;)
