[01:54:54] Bytram|away is now known as Bytram
[01:54:58] <Bytram> hola~
[01:55:30] <takyon> yo
[01:58:00] <Bytram> ho ho and a bottle of rum?
[01:58:20] * Bytram was catching up in the other channels
[01:58:30] <Bytram> takyon: how's things?
[01:59:41] <takyon> p good
[01:59:46] <Bytram> nodnod
[01:59:47] <takyon> maybe dumping all this news
[01:59:54] <Bytram> glad to hear (umm read) it!
[02:00:13] <takyon> the chromebook is working well
[02:00:23] <Bytram> nice! which one did you get?
[02:00:26] <takyon> silent and probably 4x the battery life of my normal laptop
[02:00:37] <Bytram> VERY nice!
[02:00:44] <Bytram> silence++
[02:00:44] <Bender> karma - silence: 1
[02:00:56] <takyon> Acer CB3-111
[02:01:01] <takyon> http://www.notebookcheck.net
[02:01:03] <exec_> └─ 13Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111 Review - NotebookCheck.net Reviews
[02:02:02] <takyon> people who got it at $180-200 launch price or $120-140 sale price are probably happy with it, but at $100 I'm floored
[02:02:52] <Bytram> wow! that's a GREAT deal! what are the specs like?
[02:02:56] <takyon> the really great thing is I could easily reset the device to base Chrome or wipe it, add Linux and hand it away in the future
[02:03:09] <Bytram> it can run linux? woo hoo!
[02:03:13] <Bytram> !woop
[02:03:13] <Bender> woop woop woop (\/) (;,,;) (\/)
[02:03:23] * Bytram was wondering if that would still work
[02:03:26] <takyon> dual-core Celeron with integrated graphics, 2 GB of RAM which happens to be more than enough, 2 USB ports, 802.11ac wireless out of nowhere
[02:03:52] <takyon> 1366x768 res at 11.6 inches
[02:04:27] <takyon> i guess the 802.11ac makes it attractive to the lucky Google Fiber users out there
[02:05:07] <Bytram> too bad it's only 768 tall; 1024 (or 1200) makes a huge difference
[02:05:21] <takyon> 1080 or 1200 you mean
[02:05:45] <Bytram> oh, yeah. u r righte
[02:06:04] * Bytram is so very glad he got his 1920x1200 monitor several years ago.
[02:06:18] * Bytram dreams of having 3 4K monitors
[02:06:53] <takyon> I have railed at 1366x768 resolution many times, but at this small size it doesn't matter much. I'm here looking at 1366x768 on 15.6 inches. If I move to the Chromebook, I'm just getting higher PPI
[02:07:19] <Bytram> nod nod
[02:08:37] <takyon> what really gets me is that 3200x1800 resolution I see on some laptops. It's nice, but I'm like, just go to 4K already!
[02:09:42] <Bytram> there is probably a downside to ultra high resolutions...
[02:10:02] -!- cowyon [cowyon!~422c73bf@94-77-993-929.c1-8.grg-ubr9.lnh-grg.md.cable.rcn.com] has joined #editorial
[02:10:11] <Bytram> as there are more pixels, there is more of the screen covered (percentage wise) by the non-lit gaps between the pixels
[02:10:33] * Bytram is guess that the pixels are not butted right up one against the other without a gap.
[02:10:37] <cowyon> allow me to parse that statement
[02:11:02] <Bytram> if there were only ONE pixel, then the entire screen would be lit up.
[02:11:20] <Bytram> if there were 4 pixels, there would be a vertical gap and a horizontal gap.
[02:11:22] <cowyon> I think those non lit gaps could decrease in size as well
[02:11:29] <Bytram> but there's more of htem
[02:11:30] <cowyon> and it might be different for techs like OLED
[02:11:36] <Bytram> could be
[02:11:45] <cowyon> if they decrease in size proportionately it wouldnt matter
[02:11:59] <cowyon> what I can tell you is
[02:12:23] <cowyon> there are more attributes to screens than PPI and resolution. I've seen some elaborate testing on anandtech
[02:12:29] <Bytram> my thoughts are that if they could make the gaps smaller, they would. no matter how large the lit part of the pixel, the unlit area is probably as small as they can make it so as to maximumize the display's ability to be readi in direct sunlight.
[02:12:33] <cowyon> if I can find and example I will link it
[02:12:43] <Bytram> no need, I know what you mean
[02:12:57] <Bytram> gamut, pincushion, trapezoid, etc.
[02:14:19] <Bytram> and, yes, there's lots more!
[02:19:34] <takyon> yes i have seen the trapezoid
[02:20:21] * Bytram remembers having to fine tune those settings on an old school CRT

[11:45:01] <FatPhil> cmn32480|away: my Raspi came with a 16GB SD card. However, I've not successfully powered it up yet, but is apparently worked for the last owner :-/
[11:45:39] <FatPhil> Normally with the bigger cards, tehy require more power, so battery-powered devices were less capable of coping with them.
