18:45 <Rookie_69> Supposed to be delivering a sailboat in the rain and fog this weekend... Hope the forecast is wrong.

18:49 <Rookie_69> Cold weather gear, wet weather gear, flotation gear, handheld radio on charge, Handheld GPS, You'd swear I was packing for a disaster.

18:50 <PovAddict> you aren't?

18:50 <Rookie_69> Oh yeah... Spare binos too.

18:50 <Rookie_69> It might be...

18:50 <mweltin> better pack scuba gear too.

18:53 <Rookie_69> Hmm... Water temp outside harbour 4C... I don't want to go overboard.

18:54 <CoderForLife> hey all

18:54 <CoderForLife> hi Rookie_69

18:54 <CoderForLife> hi mweltin

18:54 <CoderForLife> Glenn - do you know where Doug has been?

18:54 <mweltin> hey HEY CFL

18:54 <CoderForLife> &seen wdsmia

18:54 <Romulus> CoderForLife: wdsmia was last seen in #boinc 1 week, 0 days, 0 hours, 25 minutes, and 11 seconds ago: * wdsmia throws Romulus back into the crevasse

18:55 <Rookie_69> Hi, Don. Ain't heard from Doug lately.

18:55 <CoderForLife> hmm

18:55 <CoderForLife> I'm a bit worried about him

18:55 <mweltin> Rookie_69, dry suit will help, but yes I'd prefer you stay dry by staying on the boat.

18:56 <Rookie_69> I don't remember him saying he was going anywhere last friday, but my memory has never been what it used to be.

18:56 *** Simone2 has quit IRC

18:57 <CoderForLife> Ididn't see anything either - didn't see any reports of tornado action in his area

18:57 <Rookie_69> A coupla weeks ago...

18:58 <Rookie_69> A dry suit is what I hope my floater suit stays as.

18:59 <Rookie_69> &seen wdsmia

18:59 <Romulus> Rookie_69: wdsmia was last seen in #boinc 1 week, 0 days, 0 hours, 29 minutes, and 39 seconds ago: * wdsmia throws Romulus back into the crevasse

18:59 <CoderForLife> it's never wise to beat up on the channel bot

19:00 <Rookie_69> That it isn't.

19:00 <Rookie_69> ... that it is?

19:00 <CoderForLife> droid karma is a fearful thing

19:00 <Rookie_69> Whatever.

19:01 <Rookie_69> The bot still seems to be here. I guess we know who won that battle.

19:01 <CoderForLife> do not never negate nobody's nonsense I always say

19:02 <mweltin> why has no one never told me that before

19:02 <Rookie_69> Note to self... Remember to set alarm clock for Oh Dark Thirty.

19:02 <mweltin> I'm going to try to work that phrase into my next meeting.

19:02 <CoderForLife> stick around and pay attention =)

19:05 <CoderForLife> hmm  what's Doug's last name again - I can't find it

19:06 <CoderForLife> I thought I had it in Skype, but I can't find Skype either

19:06 * CoderForLife is a thorough disk cleaner

19:07 * CoderForLife bangs on the monitor to get Rookie_69 's attention

19:07 <Rookie_69> Think of that old grey haired fart from The Price Is Right.

19:07 <CoderForLife> ah

19:07 <CoderForLife> thanks

19:08 <Rookie_69> :.)

19:08 <Rookie_69> ?

19:08 <Rookie_69> :-)

19:08 <mweltin> now that theme song is in my head.

19:08 <CoderForLife> I knew it was simple

19:09 <Rookie_69> Nope. The only theme song that comes to me is Jeopardy!

19:11 <Rookie_69> I guess it's been too many centuries since I saw TPIR.

19:11 <mweltin> aaaaarggggggghhhhhhhh stop it.   Now they are both playing simultaneously in my head.   I need a better brain, or a worse one.  Eitehr way one that works. .

19:12 <Rookie_69> ... Then that brings to mind Weird Al... I lost on Jeopardy!

19:12 * mweltin phew dodged that bullet.

19:14 <Rookie_69> I generally use a mind-numbing drug called alcohol to delete the week's drudgery,

19:14 <Rookie_69> Won't be seeing much of that tomorrow...

19:16 <PovAddict> mweltin: good video to get a song out of your head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrnoR9cBP3o

19:16 <Romulus> Title: YouTube - Spoon Full of sugar - Mary poppins (at www.youtube.com)

19:16 <mweltin> hahahah thats my wife's favorite movie. or one of at least.

19:17 <mweltin> for a sec I thouht I was being rick rolled.

19:17 <CoderForLife> well - looks like the tracker I installed on his smartphone is out of range

19:18 <PovAddict> mweltin: it's close

19:18 <CoderForLife> heh - I saw the first run of Mary Poppins in the movie theatre

19:18 <PovAddict> you'll thank me later when that song is playing in your head repeatedly >:)

19:18 <CoderForLife> Dick Van Dyke was all the rage back then

19:19 <mweltin> apparently his voice coach was a Scottish guy.

19:20 <mweltin> DVD was on "wait wait don't tell me a while ago"

19:21 <Rookie_69> Doug shows as being available on Skype... Maybe he just got tired of being here?

19:22 <PovAddict> fell into his own crevasse

19:22 <CoderForLife> I knew those deadly crevasse spiders did something to tracking signals...

19:23 <Rookie_69> CoderForLife is offline though.

19:23 <CoderForLife> looks like I nuked Skype somehow

19:23 * CoderForLife unleahes the Skype hounds

19:24 <CoderForLife> I think I'll unleash them too

19:24 <Rookie_69> Looks like I should do some housekeeping... It shows Dogbytes as being offline.

19:25 <PovAddict> Rookie_69: it'd be quite creepy if he was online :/

19:25 <Rookie_69> Lol.

19:25 <CoderForLife> I think I saw that on The Twilight Zone

19:25 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: they had Skype back then?

19:26 <Rookie_69> Frequency.

19:26 <CoderForLife> I think it had to do with a telephone line laying on a grave

19:26 <CoderForLife> either that or a cat 5 cable

19:27 <Rookie_69> Didn;t Stephen King write something like that too?

19:27 <PovAddict> wonder how much a cat5 cable from heaven to here would *weigh*...

19:27 <Rookie_69> A zillion tons.

19:27 <PovAddict> it'd break from its own weight

19:27 <CoderForLife> and how many angels it would take to hold it up

19:28 <Rookie_69> A fish.

19:28 <mweltin> I didn't realize how much I missed #boinc until now.

19:28 <PovAddict> ah well, I guess it wouldn't break if there's angels holding it

19:28 <CoderForLife> indeed

19:28 <Rookie_69> Are they acute angels?

19:28 <CoderForLife> how many angels can dance on UTP?

19:28 <mweltin> oh fun fact,  leet or 13.37 / pi is 42

19:29 <Rookie_69> 42!

19:29 <mweltin> makes you think ...... not really about anything in particular but think all the same.

19:29 <CoderForLife> you're kidding!?

19:29 <Rookie_69> How many roads must a man walk down>

19:29 <mweltin> 42?

19:29 <Romulus> I guess 42 is pretty darn weird. But is it odd, mweltin

19:29 * CoderForLife checks the wind

19:30 <CoderForLife> I can't seem to find the answer there

19:30 <mweltin> ok another week in the can.

19:30 <mweltin> I'm outta here.

19:30 <CoderForLife> but I hear the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls, and tenement halls

19:30 <mweltin> take care

19:30 <Rookie_69> More mundane question... How many lives did Douglas Adams influence?

19:31 <CoderForLife> cya mweltin

19:31 <mweltin> good luck with the boat Rookie_69

19:31 <mweltin> later cfl

19:31 <Rookie_69> Cya.

19:31 *** mweltin has quit IRC

19:31 <Rookie_69> More than 42, I'm sure.

19:31 <CoderForLife> 425.5793226381462

19:32 <Rookie_69> times ten to the power of...

19:32 <Rookie_69> 42!

19:32 <PovAddict> 9 in 10 calculators agree: http://i0.simplest-image-hosting.net/168bf183b2abe8bc9188aacc163dd507/plasma-desktopgp2736.jpg

19:33 <CoderForLife> the length of the hypotenuse...

19:33 <Rookie_69> hippopotamus?

19:34 <Rookie_69> Eight feet?

19:35 * PovAddict points at line 210 of http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kde-workspace.git&a=blob&f=plasma/generic/runners/calculator/calculatorrunner.cpp

19:36 <CoderForLife> heh

19:36 <Rookie_69> That looks even more confusing than the stuff I failed to teach myself in the eighties.

19:37 <CoderForLife> that's why I come here - I learn so much

19:37 <CoderForLife> =)

19:39 <CoderForLife> my search of the West Des Moines obituaries turned up nothing

19:39 <PovAddict> :/ that's morbid

19:40 <CoderForLife> nothing - nobody = that's good news

19:40 <Rookie_69> On skype now.

19:41 <CoderForLife> I'd have to reinstall it

19:41 <CoderForLife> cheer up PovAddict
