[04:16:31] <cmn32480> 2 hour + spacing due to lack of goodness in the story queue
[12:46:42] zz_janrinok_afk is now known as janrinok
[12:47:40] <janrinok> hi guys
[12:47:51] <janrinok> Bytram|away, are you really here?
[13:20:16] <cmn32480> nah he's prolly away
[13:20:56] <janrinok> cmn!!
[13:21:11] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok
[13:21:14] * exec diabolically connects a stack of can you feel it Mr. Krabs to janrinok
[13:21:52] <janrinok> ~gday cmn32480
[13:21:54] * exec illegitimately pesters a triply-linked list of source code with cmn32480
[13:22:19] <cmn32480> oooo a triplly link list... whatever that is
[13:22:19] <janrinok> I don't know, but 'gday' sounds very antipodean to us Brits
[13:22:37] <cmn32480> given the programmer is an aussie...
[13:22:50] <janrinok> ah, one of crutchy's productions is it?
[13:23:30] <cmn32480> all part of exec
[13:23:40] <cmn32480> he's the programmer... I'm just the op
[13:24:24] <janrinok> 'just' the op, he says...
[13:25:25] <cmn32480> I'm just his operator... crutchy writes the code
[13:26:08] <cmn32480> only reeason I op the bot is cuz I keep him online 24x7 (with some unscheduled down time
[13:26:40] <janrinok> a very noble effort on your part
[13:27:06] <cmn32480> exec runs on the guest VLAN at work
[13:27:10] <cmn32480> nobody notices...
[13:27:46] <janrinok> not much comp power required for it, I suppose
[13:29:30] <cmn32480> nope
[13:29:33] <cmn32480> near nothing
[13:29:46] <cmn32480> if I had shell, I coudl probably run him on a phone
[13:29:54] <cmn32480> it's the dependencies that are a pain
[13:30:11] <cmn32480> but he runs on an Ubuntu instance w/ 2GB of Ram
[13:30:43] <cmn32480> Celeron processor
[13:30:48] <cmn32480> nothign special
[13:31:12] <janrinok> my server is more powerful than that - but if you don't need more power then why use it...
[13:31:58] <janrinok> I run a TOR relay and freenet node, plus all my own server needs
[13:32:32] <cmn32480> nah exec is an IRC monitor, and a bunch of PHP scripts
[13:32:45] <cmn32480> though crutchy was workign on rolling Arthur into him
[13:33:03] <cmn32480> ~tell crutchy what happened to the Arthur submission project?
[13:34:24] <cmn32480> they way it was gonna work, was that it woudl output a webpage of the story titles, and using exec's submit command, it woudl sub the whole story

[15:50:15] <nick> g'day
[15:50:26] <cmn32480> ~gday nick
[15:50:31] * exec covertly pours a tube of estrogen for nick
[15:50:55] <nick> delightful
[15:51:40] <cmn32480> far better then a lot of the stuff that it could have been
[15:52:29] <nick> true
[15:52:36] <nick> how are the frozen peas doing?
[15:52:42] <cmn32480> pretty well
[15:53:00] <cmn32480> long as I keep the boys supported the pain is pretty well gone
[15:53:19] <cmn32480> bicycle shorts are a wonderful invention
[15:53:38] <cmn32480> 'nother day or two adn I'm allowed to take ibuprofen so the swelling will go away
[15:54:35] <cmn32480> all in all... not bad
[15:54:43] <cmn32480> and for that I am VERY thankful
[15:55:00] <cmn32480> hows thigns for you?
[15:56:17] <nick> back with a spring in your step in no time i'm sure ;)
[15:56:57] <cmn32480> yeah... that's the hope anyway
[15:57:02] <nick> today has been ok, trying to take the day off mostly
[15:57:08] <cmn32480> good
[15:57:11] <cmn32480> you need the rest
[15:57:18] <cmn32480> we all do occassionally
[15:57:36] <nick> think i'm going to end up buying another laptop
[15:57:58] <cmn32480> this one dying?
[15:58:13] <nick> back to the ol' 'need windows for software' as much as ive tried to get away from that
[15:58:48] <cmn32480> yup
[15:59:02] <cmn32480> story of life in the corporate world for the most part
[15:59:33] <nick> but i can get away with just buying a refurbished one at least
[15:59:50] <cmn32480> that's good
[16:00:24] <nick> this dell i have now seems to do the job, it's all disposable now anyway so i resent paying decent money for a laptop
[16:00:52] <cmn32480> depends on your definition of "decent money"
[16:01:40] <nick> i havn't looked around lately but last time i did, a tolerable new one started at around $750
[16:01:45] <cmn32480> i just bought the wife a new laptop for Mothers Day..
[16:01:47] <cmn32480> yep
[16:02:13] <cmn32480> there are a ton of refurbs places that carry i7's for fairly cheap, but I don't know how that works getting them across the pnd
[16:02:45] <nick> thats what i spent on the lenovo i bought some time ago, screen died after about a year
[16:02:59] <cmn32480> video card or the lcd?
[16:03:17] <nick> lcd
[16:03:31] <nick> although it could have been the card actually, since external displays didn't work either
[16:03:50] <nick> but it was an AMD A-series so it had combined cpu/gpu
[16:03:59] <cmn32480> yick
[16:04:00] <nick> and it also had an additional gpu
[16:04:12] <cmn32480> that sucks if it was the card
[16:04:17] <cmn32480> the LCD is a $50 fix
[16:05:37] <nick> now thinking about it more, it was a deeper issue, it used to work occasionally, just couldnt boot
[16:05:50] <cmn32480> sounds like the board went
[16:05:50] <nick> i changed everything i could
[16:05:52] <nick> aye
[16:06:17] <nick> it was very frustrating at the time
[16:06:51] <cmn32480> that never happens at a good time
[16:07:57] <nick> dell e6420 is what i have now, which is nothing good but has ports to plug things into and enough power to get things done
[16:08:35] <cmn32480> I'm on a 6440
[16:08:50] <cmn32480> bytram has an original 6400
[16:08:57] <nick> 2nd gen i5 seems to work well enough
[16:09:55] <cmn32480> I've ordered from these guys before with very good results.
[16:09:55] <cmn32480> http://www.usmicrocorpretail.com
[16:09:56] <systemd> ^✓ 03US Micro - Computers, Laptops, Servers and more from Dell, Cisco, HP and other brands.
[16:10:03] <cmn32480> but I don't know if they ship international
[16:10:44] <nick> usually shipping from the us is the killer
[16:11:04] <cmn32480> right
[16:11:33] <cmn32480> getting anythgin international is a pain in the butt
[16:12:05] <nick> it's usually not too bad, but most US based retailers and such do not have the systems for dealing with international clients
[16:12:47] <nick> dealing within the US has its own challenges from what i've been made aware of
[16:12:47] <cmn32480> right
[16:12:54] <cmn32480> heh
[16:12:56] <cmn32480> it can
[16:13:03] <cmn32480> you might look at newegg.com
[16:13:09] <cmn32480> they deal in RFB stuff as well
[16:13:15] <cmn32480> from the same compnay
[16:13:30] <nick> thats where ive looked before and it's not been worth it
[16:13:33] <cmn32480> ok
[16:13:55] <nick> prices do seem good
[16:14:13] <nick> what is the shipping like if you're in the us from usmicro?
[16:14:36] <cmn32480> typically been pretty cheap.... gimme a sec and I;ll look at it
[16:15:33] <nick> i have a friend who is in desperate need of a laptop, seems like a good option for them
[16:16:27] <cmn32480> inside the US a lot of them are free shipping
[16:17:41] <cmn32480> looks liek they ship all over the world
[16:17:45] <nick> that's pretty awesome
[16:18:10] <cmn32480> you can probably find what you want and at least plug in your address to see what the costs would be
[16:19:30] <nick> Do you ship outside of the USA?
[16:19:30] <nick> At this time we do not ship anywhere outside of the US other than US territories such as Puerto Rico and Guam.
[16:19:59] <cmn32480> interesting... they have all the countries of the world listed in their shipping dialogue
[16:20:11] <nick> weird
[16:20:17] <nick> they might do it on request
[16:20:52] <cmn32480> dunno
[16:21:42] <nick> is good to know though, could be very useful if i need to buy a bunch of laptops
[16:22:45] <cmn32480> they typically don't have anythign in the last generation or two
[16:22:54] <nick> for now though, another of the dells should do the trick, as much as i don't want to buy another machine
[16:22:56] <cmn32480> another option is outlet.dell.com
[16:26:36] <cmn32480> alright.. time to feed my monsters
[16:26:55] <nick> dont put your hands through the bars
[16:31:35] <cmn32480> i usually do it by trebuchet
[16:33:53] <nick> that's smart
