06:59 <TheGasGiant> I hear Ohio got hit

06:59 <CoderForLife> well, you certainly don't see me walking around Oz =)

06:59 <TheGasGiant> are welcome to visit

06:59 <CoderForLife> they were in Northern Ohio - thanks for asking

07:00 <TheGasGiant> i see

07:00 <CoderForLife> I spent last week in Austin TX

07:00 <TheGasGiant> I've been there...did you work hard?

07:00 <CoderForLife> business conference

07:00 <TheGasGiant> you attend a few of those

07:00 <CoderForLife> I tried to keep up my workput schedule

07:01 <TheGasGiant> workput?

07:01 <CoderForLife> I managed to do 3 back-to-back days of walking over 10,000 steps on my pedometer

07:01 <CoderForLife> er workout

07:02 <TheGasGiant> ahhh...are you a member of the 10,000 club?

07:02 * CoderForLife carefully inspects the placment of the o and p keys

07:02 <CoderForLife> obviously a glitch in The Matrix

07:03 <TheGasGiant> i hate it when that happens

07:03 <TheGasGiant> coding going well?

07:03 <CoderForLife> Working along on The Big One

07:04 <TheGasGiant> the big one...more info?

07:04 * TheGasGiant is all eyes

07:04 <CoderForLife> hmm

07:04 <CoderForLife> not yet

07:04 <TheGasGiant> it's been a while...

07:05 <TheGasGiant> so it's patentable then

07:05 <CoderForLife> although I've thought a bit about you and Aussieland

07:05 * TheGasGiant thinks about leaving aussieland and travelling (when he wins the lottery)

07:06 <yoyo[RKN]> ^^ lol

07:06 <TheGasGiant> aussieland is a good place to visit (and live)

07:06 <CoderForLife> he's always joking about that yoyo

07:06 <TheGasGiant> hola yoyo

07:06 <yoyo[RKN]> moin

07:06 * TheGasGiant needs to win the lottery

07:06 <CoderForLife> we all do

07:07 * TheGasGiant needs to win a lottery to help pay for new house

07:08 <CoderForLife> did you buy that place across the street?

07:08 <TheGasGiant> lol...went for over a mill

07:08 <TheGasGiant> about 150k too much for us

07:09 <CoderForLife> yeah - me too

07:09 * CoderForLife rolls his eyes twoard the ceiling

07:09 <TheGasGiant> need to sell this house, borrow from the bank and then buy a house for 900-950k

07:10 <CoderForLife> I did it differently

07:10 * TheGasGiant rolled eyes at the house going for more than a mill

07:10 <CoderForLife> took home equity loan on old house to get downpayment, bought the new house, sold the old house

07:10 <TheGasGiant> Melbourne has ridiculous housing prices

07:11 <CoderForLife> I was a land baron for about 2 months there

07:11 <TheGasGiant> the hard part is knowing how much you can get on the old you know how much your going to get screwed by the banks for

07:12 <CoderForLife> yep

07:12 * TheGasGiant hates getting screwed to the point of procrastination

07:12 <CoderForLife> in my case, had I not been able to sell the old house, I'd have been enscrewed

07:13 <TheGasGiant> lol

07:13 <TheGasGiant> your house going well?

07:14 <CoderForLife> yeah, big paint job scheduled for week of 21st

07:14 <CoderForLife> been here 4 years

07:14 <TheGasGiant> no way

07:14 <CoderForLife> way

07:14 <TheGasGiant> unbelievable

07:14 <CoderForLife> believe

07:14 <TheGasGiant> it feels like last year you showed me the web links for the house

07:15 <CoderForLife> you've been away

07:15 <TheGasGiant> a land far far away

07:15 <CoderForLife> that too =)

07:16 <CoderForLife> breakfast time - bbiab

07:16 <TheGasGiant> ok...healthy eating

07:16 <CoderForLife> k

07:25 * TheGasGiant notes CFLs BOINCing is non existent

07:33 *** _Danilo_ has quit IRC

08:02 <CoderForLife> I have my priorities

08:03 <TheGasGiant> excuses, excuses!

08:03 <CoderForLife> like breakfast -- back

08:03 <TheGasGiant> nice breaky

08:03 <TheGasGiant> ?

08:03 <CoderForLife> s'ok

08:04 <CoderForLife> ate some roast beast

08:04 <TheGasGiant> bowl of cereal is my usual

08:04 <CoderForLife> filled the chasm

08:04 * TheGasGiant thinks CFL fell off the wagon

08:05 <CoderForLife> what wagon?

08:05 <TheGasGiant> diet...

08:06 <CoderForLife> how thin am I supposed to get?

08:06 <CoderForLife> everyone is worried that I'm too thin

08:06 <TheGasGiant>'s not all just about the weight...

08:06 * CoderForLife worries about the Chrome DOM

08:07 <TheGasGiant> there's that nasty thing called cholesterol

08:07 <CoderForLife> mine is astoundingly good

08:07 <TheGasGiant> good to see

08:08 * TheGasGiant let's CFL off the hook

08:08 <CoderForLife> ouch - it was beginning to hurt

08:08 <TheGasGiant> hooks usually do - epsecially those with barbs

08:08 <CoderForLife> I think I dated her

08:09 <TheGasGiant> was she good lookin?

08:09 <CoderForLife> average

08:09 <CoderForLife> a lot of passion

08:10 <TheGasGiant> woohoo!

08:11 * TheGasGiant had passion last night, then her sister this morning

08:12 <CoderForLife> hmm - Chrome doesn't seem to have the contentDocument object inside an iFrame

08:12 <CoderForLife> I hate it when that happens

08:13 * TheGasGiant notes CFL is coding a multi-platform compatible web app on the side

08:13 <CoderForLife> that's part of it =)

08:14 <TheGasGiant> i'm going to hit the road Don

08:14 <TheGasGiant> let you code and let me stretch my back before bed

08:14 <CoderForLife> ok - been great chatting

08:14 <CoderForLife> ttys

08:14 * TheGasGiant notes age causes body to start aching in places it never used to

08:15 <TheGasGiant> have a great day Don :)

13:23 <efc> moo

13:24 <efc> xcamel or CFL around?

13:24 <efc> been looking at this thing.

13:24 <Romulus> Title: 13K+ sqft mansion, japanese tea gardens, chapel FORECLOSURE (at

13:25 <efc> thanks for the commentary, Romulus.

13:31 <xcamel> uh-huh

13:36 <efc> I went to see it

13:36 <efc> It has a cedar shingle roof. With small trees growing out of it. Didn't seem to be leaking, but I'd guess it needs a new one.

13:37 <efc> Has probably sat there at least 8 years. But its the real deal mansion, solid as a rock.

13:39 <efc> Its a fairly insane gamble, I suppose.

13:39 <efc> Hard to look away since I've never seen anything like it. They don't let Po-Foke like me in those joints.

13:43 <efc> Not sure how a cedar shingle roof works anyway; can't be watertight on its own.

14:13 <xcamel> it is, when it gets wet, it seals like a vacuum lid.

14:13 <xcamel> cedar roofs can last 100 years with minimal maint.

14:13 <MTughan> Does it leak a bit before the shingle absorbs enough water?

14:26 <xcamel> rarely if ever

14:27 <xcamel> cedar chingle roofs have 3 layers

14:27 <xcamel> er..shingle, that is.

15:50 <efc> DA?

15:50 <Romulus> hmm... DA is David Anderson, efc

15:50 <Tank_Master> wow, Romulus was actually helpful for once

15:50 <PovAddict> BOINC BDFL

15:50 <efc> Oh. The religion.

15:50 <Tank_Master> yeah XD

15:51 <xcamel> you could make a hell of a go of that place...

15:51 <xcamel> traditional weddings in the chapel..

15:52 <xcamel> japanese weddings in the gardens

15:52 <xcamel> receptions in that main foyer area..

15:52 <xcamel> you'd be all set up in a business you never thought of..

15:53 <Tank_Master> whore house or to... :P

15:53 <Tank_Master> two*

15:54 <efc> its insane

15:57 <efc> I wish I could know the story on it

15:59 <Yoyo_m> oha 4:0 for germany

16:00 <efc> The foyer, not pictured anywhere, sort of sucks

16:00 <PovAddict> Yoyo_m: ?

16:00 <PovAddict> Yoyo_m: soccer? against who?

16:00 <efc> damaged hemisphical skylight, leaked and ruined the floor. That room is the only big problem inside the house.

16:00 <Yoyo_m> australia

16:01 <PovAddict> Yoyo_m: then remember to mock TheGasGiant when he's here :)

16:01 <Tank_Master> lol

16:01 <MTughan> TGG is Australian?

16:01 <Yoyo_m> lol

16:02 <PovAddict> MTughan: yes, and I think someone else here is too

16:02 <Yoyo_m> 15 min left

16:47 <efc> Hey CFL. You have a record with huge, hopeless projects, right?

16:48 <CoderForLife> indeed - my speciality - the bleaker, the better

16:48 <efc> Oh, well you'd like this, then.

16:49 <CoderForLife> wow - that's some place

16:49 <efc> Maybe what it needs is a massive retaining wall.

16:49 *** Sir_Remoz has joined #boinc

16:50 <CoderForLife> how much do utilities run on a place like that?

16:50 <efc> Two words: Window Unit.

16:51 <efc> Fully occupied.. $1k a month, probably.

16:51 <efc> Running the gigantic fountains etc

16:52 <CoderForLife> going to establish some kind of cult?

16:52 <CoderForLife> Brotherhood of BOINC

16:52 <CoderForLife> how much did it cost to build?

16:53 *** Yoyo_m has joined #boinc

16:53 <efc> in 1946, i have no idea

16:53 <efc> they were asking 2.9 mil in an old listing I found

16:53 <CoderForLife> ah

16:54 <efc> When there is stuff growing on the roof, its hard to get FMV

16:54 <efc> trees

16:54 <CoderForLife> quite a discount

16:54 <Yoyo_m> back home

16:54 <CoderForLife> wb yoyo

16:54 <Yoyo_m> Ole ole

16:56 *** Yoyo_m has quit IRC

16:56 *** Yoyo_m has joined #boinc

16:56 <efc> a couple of banks

16:56 <efc> before that, some speculator company, i think

16:57 <efc> I believe the builder/original owner died

16:57 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: I vaguely remembered quail was australian, but couldn't check (he has an IRC cloak)

17:50 <CoderForLife> he's sneaky like that

17:52 <CoderForLife> efc - I guess I was looking for some reason for the mixture of styles in the house - I guess the original owner was a bit eccentric

17:54 <CoderForLife> looks like a bleak prospect - I'd go for it

17:54 <CoderForLife> get it for $200K

18:13 <CoderForLife> buy a monk robe, live in the chapel

18:13 <CoderForLife> renovate the rest over time

18:14 <CoderForLife> you need to take this to the lunatic fringe =)
