01:22 <jasong> Anybody use Transmission in Linux?  I'm trying to de-clutter and I need to know where the torrent tracking file is stored

01:23 <jasong> I'm pretty sure it's one of those "invisible" directories, but I want to make the haystack a bit smaller before I start looking, if you get my meaning

01:23 <zombie67> invisible?

01:23 <zombie67> just ls -la

01:24 <jasong> Yeah, I know, but there are a ton of invisible directories and I'm hoping I can cut down on the random clicking

01:25 <zombie67> clicking?

01:26 <zombie67> you mean you use a mouse?!

01:26 <jasong> Well, my initial search will involve a mouse

01:27 *** up365 has joined #boinc

01:27 <jasong> When I start rearranging stuff, I might do things different, but first I need to figure out where the stuff I need is

01:29 <jasong> Found it :)

01:29 <jasong> .config

01:32 <ELGono> lol zombie67 when i think of linux, there is no mouse ;) too

01:33 <zombie67> I grew up on unix, and wyse green vt100 terminals

01:33 <ELGono> yea dude ;)

01:34 <ELGono> bash 2.0 was like a revolution ;)

01:34 <zombie67> vi rules

01:35 <zombie67> tsch is just too easy

01:35 <zombie67> ;)

01:35 <ELGono> but it has history ;)

01:35 <zombie67> heh

01:38 <ELGono> and tcsh has some cool vi insert mode functions

01:39 <zombie67> that was after my time

01:39 <ELGono> using mouse now? hehe

01:40 <ELGono> i set up a SGI Indigo (33Mhz) as diskless system (booting from another sgi server) just for one purpose

01:41 <ELGono> to use the keyboard of it at all my other maschines.... doing that with x2vnc (via ssh connection)

04:30 <CoderForLife> no  - no pr0n involved

04:30 <CoderForLife> unless you consider my income tax files

04:30 <efc> thought it might be naughty cuz its supposed to be 'secure' or something

04:37 <ELGono> our Minister of the Interior (schaeuble / the one in wheelchair) was hacked 2 days ago

04:38 <ELGono> security leak in typo3

04:38 <ELGono> his website was 0wn3d

04:38 <ELGono> and the guys googled his md5 password hash

04:38 <ELGono> gues what his password was:

04:38 <CoderForLife> hmm

04:38 <CoderForLife> last name

04:38 <ELGono> "gewinner" ... wich means "winner"

04:39 <CoderForLife> ah  heh

04:39 <CoderForLife> i bet it would be "whiner" now

04:39 <CoderForLife> I bet he used the same password everywhere too

04:40 <ELGono> rotfl

04:40 <ELGono> for sure don

04:40 <ELGono> he's "merkbefreit"

04:40 <CoderForLife> not just owned - completely owned

04:46 <ELGono> funny .. uni wants still 500 euros "long time student fee" for next semester ... but owes me still 200 euro

04:46 <ELGono> cause i rented some projectors to them

17:54 <Nickuwo> dammit

17:54 <MTughan> Heh.

17:55 <Nickuwo> damn c/c++. everything should be written in C#

17:55 * CoderForLife looks up

17:56 <MTughan> I prefer Obj-C myself.

17:56 * Nickuwo ducks

17:56 <CoderForLife> that would be a huge mistake

17:56 <CoderForLife> bbiab

17:56 <Nickuwo> yes, well

17:58 <Nickuwo> drink beer or write code....

17:58 <Nickuwo> what a dilemma

17:59 <Nickuwo> drink beer and write code??

17:59 <Nickuwo> <-- genius

17:59 <MTughan> No, you drink caffeine and write code. ;)

18:01 <Nickuwo> how bout sparks? alcohol and caffine

18:01 * Nickuwo is tempted to just copy C# code into a .cpp file...

18:01 <MTughan> o_O

18:40 <CoderForLife> hello KathrynM

18:41 * CoderForLife eyes the tab key suspiciously

18:41 * KathrynM eyes CoderForLife

18:41 <KathrynM> and his tab key

18:41 <CoderForLife> beware the eyeds of March

18:42 <KathrynM> *sigh* Friday the 13th

18:42 <MTughan> CoderForLife: "ides" of March.

18:42 <MTughan> KathrynM: I was born on Friday the 13th.

18:42 <CoderForLife> I hear it comes on Friday this month

18:42 <KathrynM> hmm...

18:42 <KathrynM> that explains a lot :)

18:43 <MTughan> lol

18:43 <CoderForLife> The fact that I know the expression should indicate that I know my history, et tu, Brute

18:43 <KathrynM> just checked, my dad was born on a Saturday

18:43 <KathrynM> :)

18:44 <wdsmia> when I went to Army basic traning we started on a Friday the 13th, had another durning training and graduated on April 1st

18:44 <KathrynM> eek

18:48 * wdsmia was born under a lucky super nova

18:50 <xcamel> March 15, 44 B.C., Caesar, first plot, Mar 18th , final deed

18:51 <CoderForLife> it's good to see that the cosmic rays didn't kause eny kromosome bamage, wdsmia

18:52 * CoderForLife does some personal finances

18:52 * KathrynM needs a lucky supernova

18:52 * wdsmia repositions his tail and thinks its a bitch typing with 12 fingers

18:53 <MTughan> o_O

18:53 <CoderForLife> math in base 12 is a bit tough

18:54 <wdsmia> lol work in base 36 at w@#%

18:54 <CoderForLife> why stop?  ran outta letters?

18:56 <wdsmia> lol cant dup a 4 digit tracking number

18:57 <CoderForLife> I bet O0O0 is quite confusing

18:57 <wdsmia> monaco true type font

18:57 <xcamel> Charter Communications to File for Bankruptcy

18:57 <MTughan> If your font doesn't differentiate it.

18:57 <MTughan> Yep, I use Monaco too.

19:01 <wdsmia> fun part is coding convertion to base 10 for reports

19:02 <CoderForLife> you just divide by the letter Q

19:02 <wdsmia> lol

19:05 <wdsmia> incrament +t decrament -w ...sum = brain meltdown

19:10 <CoderForLife> I agree - "sum brain meltdown"

19:13 <wdsmia> ok quick test frac - sux answer in base 10

19:14 <xcamel> if brain > 0

19:16 <CoderForLife> illogical expression - please re-enter

19:16 <wdsmia> rommie would have a hard time with that one

19:18 <wdsmia> I only have to do that 6 times each for 59 nodes each month

19:20 * CoderForLife tries to figure out where he's going to spend his $13 per week tax break to best stimulate the economy

19:20 <wdsmia> then make a nice pie chart for managment to ooh and ahh over

19:20 <CoderForLife> I think this is base 52 math

19:20 <xcamel> it's only $8.10 in the final cut, CFL

19:20 <wdsmia> goes to $8 after Jan

19:21 <CoderForLife> there goes my McDonald's-based plan

19:21 <CoderForLife> and Michelle was making fun of McCain's plan

19:22 <CoderForLife> Barry's going to fumble this, and then do a big over-reach

19:23 <wdsmia> ya think

19:23 <CoderForLife> Community organzing just isn't what it used to be to gain executive experience

19:26 * CoderForLife thinks that a return to bitter clinging may be in order

19:26 <CoderForLife> but until then, down to the Couch with the missus

19:26 <CoderForLife> gn from here

19:39 <wdsmia> Advocates for the poor say that directing stimulus money to the neediest Americans makes sense because they're the most likely to put cash back into the economy quickly.

19:40 <xcamel> and not pay off all their bad debts, forcing hard working people to become poor...

19:42 * wdsmia invests in the 50" HD tv market

19:43 <xcamel> risky...

19:44 <wdsmia> you think they will take that money and pay off the credit cards or head for best buy

19:47 <xcamel> nope

19:52 <xcamel> cases o'beer, McD's, etc

19:52 <wdsmia> Cadillac welfare

19:52 <xcamel> something like that..

19:56 <wdsmia> Cadillac welfare was taking the caddie out to pick up the food stamps by people who never worked a day in there lives

19:58 <wdsmia> people who forget the past are bound to repeat it

19:58 <xcamel> you forgot the 450lb woman, 8 kids, and the handicap tag for the mirror.\

20:00 <wdsmia> maybe I'll invest in new tenament construction

22:00 <MTughan> There's a reason I started up a Mibbit window... :P

22:01 <wdsmia> If I really wanted to kick/ban you couldnt hide

22:01 <MTughan> No, that's true. But it does prevent an auto-kick/ban.

22:02 <wdsmia> Im not going to kick/ban you for somthing I asked you to do... just dont do it again :)

22:02 <MTughan> lol

23:28 <Soul_keeper> creating/using a hash of a hash in perl is like learning math while being punched in the face

23:28 <Soul_keeper> it's so much easier to just open a file and store your 240+ variables in a way you know how to regex um ...

23:29 <Soul_keeper> they start talking about pointers and dereferencing things and  then they start using weird words and you don't know if they are part of the example or some way they are trying to use to explain things by spelling something that is supposed to "make sense"

23:31 <MTughan> Have you seen the regex to match emails?

23:35 <wdsmia> I know perl but years out of date

23:38 <Soul_keeper> i just wish i could find real working examples, instead of ignorant portions of explanation for something

23:39 <Soul_keeper> like it won't show them declaring stuff, or how they got to the point where they expect you to be learning something
