[21:00:24] <cmn32480> VP of sales got a new laptop over a year ago
[21:00:31] <cmn32480> tells me that he can't get on from home.
[21:00:34] <cmn32480> today
[21:00:50] <cmn32480> says that his RDS connection and Outlook don't work
[21:01:01] <cmn32480> also mentions that he can't get online from internet explorer.
[21:01:15] <cmn32480> looks like he isn't connected to the wifi at the house
[21:03:00] <cmn32480> I can't fix stupid
[21:03:35] <nick> for a year...
[21:03:56] <cmn32480> I'm speechless
[21:04:08] <nick> i dont blame you
[21:04:18] <cmn32480> all I can do is shake my head.
[21:06:27] <cmn32480> I don't even want to tell my boss.
[21:09:22] <nick> not much you can say
[21:10:02] <cmn32480> all I can do is yet again show him how to connect to the wireless... and hope that he can do it and won't call me.
[21:12:35] <cmn32480> we heard anythign from janrinok?
[21:13:29] <nick> have not seen him about today

[21:28:53] <cmn32480> me too. as long as there is a boat under me
[21:30:11] <nick> that is cheating
[21:30:20] <cmn32480> yup!
[21:30:28] <cmn32480> nobody said you couldn't cheat
[21:31:24] <nick> still need a boat... the start of the year i was considering a foray into boats
[21:32:06] <cmn32480> my boats all float quite nicely in the bathtub. my kids love 'em!
[21:32:16] <nick> however, you wont catch me near a boat with sails again, too many knots.
[21:33:32] <nick> shouldn't let the kids have all the fun!

[21:52:56] <cmn32480> before responsibility
[21:53:12] <cmn32480> all you worried about was rent, food and beer money
[21:53:20] <cmn32480> everythgin else took care of itself
[21:53:20] <nick> before convinience stores had remote cctv and other monitoring solutions to ensure worker productivity

[22:08:44] <nick> yeah, you're right. i'll save it for the weekend and the first set of patches no doubt.
[22:08:59] <cmn32480> good choice
[22:25:22] <nick> feels weird to be excited about some media again
[22:28:31] <cmn32480> ?? how so?

[22:29:51] <cmn32480> 8 mile
[22:30:30] <cmn32480> Stop. Collaborate and listen.
[22:31:09] <nick> lol
[22:31:27] <cmn32480> Ice is back with a brand new invention
[22:32:08] <takyon> is it solid
[22:32:25] <cmn32480> https://www.youtube.com
[22:32:25] <wagegap> ^ 03Richard Cheese ::::: Ice,Ice,Baby. - YouTube
[22:33:23] <takyon> I actually check out that latest gewg sub on vice before he put it in
[22:34:05] <cmn32480> it is an interesting story
[22:34:38] <takyon> looks to me like one of today's biggest stories might be the Russian doping scandal
[22:34:48] <takyon> haven't looked at much of the news today
[22:34:57] <cmn32480> I saw that this morning... work has been busy as shit
[22:36:19] <takyon> I like doping stories because of the transhumanist angle
[22:36:47] <nick> could you explain, takyon?
[22:37:00] <cmn32480> ninja'd
[22:37:04] <cmn32480> thanks nickl
[22:39:51] <takyon> humanity's options for increasing personal capabilities and performance are expanding and threatening the "purity" of sport. blood doping, steroids, blade legs, and soon gene therapy. The list keeps growing. At some point we will develop anti-aging therapies that will skew all age bracket results and possibly insert a significant rich-poor divide into the mix. Medical reality will clash with the desire to hang on to "purity" and
[22:39:51] <takyon> "sportsmanship"
[22:41:13] <takyon> with advanced nutrition tracking, nanobots, etc. the time it takes for the world's best runner to run a mile or marathon will decrease further, as it has been steadily decreasing over the last century
[22:41:14] <nick> none of it is particularly new though, the techniques are obviously more advanced, widening the existing divide
[22:42:43] <takyon> also the cheats are on the forefront of medical self-experimentation. There is speculation that there is already gene therapy in the mix now. They won't wait for the typical 10-15 years it takes for an experimental therapy to get safety approval. they will... run with it
[22:43:23] <cmn32480> <rimshot>
[22:43:27] <nick> indeed, some of the research is no doubt far beyond what is public now
[22:44:34] <takyon> in recent years the conversation about doping has widened to include "cognitive doping". such as mathletes and MLG gamers taking nootropics
[22:45:25] <takyon> and that's why I find doping stories interesting
[22:48:12] <nick> its the most interesting and important angle to look at that kind of story
[22:49:04] <nick> i caught it on the radio at some point, and saw headlines, but it was obviously just about "sanctions" from the athletics people
[22:50:12] <takyon> i don't even know the full extent of it yet but it seems like they want to ban the whole country
[22:51:07] <cmn32480> pk gents... I gotta get p[acked to head to the airport.
[22:51:18] <cmn32480> everybody have a good night.

[22:53:19] <nick> take care cmn32480|away
[22:53:25] * nick hat tip
[22:53:47] <nick> takyon: thats what i got from the radio, "banning russia"
