[02:32:23] <takyon> hi
[02:32:47] <cmn32480> ~gday takyon
[02:32:49] * exec unnecessarily spews a steel drum of kryptonite watermelon on takyon
[02:33:58] <cmn32480> how goes?
[02:37:13] <takyon> alright
[02:39:10] <takyon> my laptop screen sucks
[02:40:05] <takyon> the contrast ratio seems off, and parts of the screen are actually dying
[02:40:10] <takyon> slowly
[02:41:10] <Bytram|away> ~gday cmn32480
[02:41:12] * exec insensitively stuffs a goblet of shrunken heads into cmn32480
[02:41:14] <takyon> those 2 facebook stories could have been merged
[02:41:16] Bytram|away is now known as bytram
[02:41:18] <takyon> or was one of them deleted
[02:42:26] <bytram> takyon: sorry to hear about your screen... it's a pain
[02:42:55] <bytram> I broke the screen on my old lappy a couple years after I got it. Just ended up docking it permanently with an external monitor
[02:42:56] <takyon> I'm just holding out as long as I can to see what AMD does with Zen APUs
[02:43:01] <bytram> lasted another 6 years
[02:43:13] <bytram> or was it 8? I don't remember
[02:43:26] <takyon> that's actually a good idea. would need a bigger desk though
[02:43:34] <bytram> started getting SMART errors. Finally replacee it after another year passed
[02:43:52] <bytram> it == lappy (hard disk was only 80 GB)
[02:44:12] <takyon> this laptop is only about 5 years old
[02:44:16] * bytram is tired
[02:44:28] <takyon> but I have put many hours into it. a lot of abuse
[02:44:39] <bytram> got out of work at about 9:30 pm; got some groceries, and got home only a few minutes ago.
[02:44:56] <takyon> I made some good sweet potato pie the other day
[02:44:57] <bytram> same here...I *think*, all tolled, it lasted about 10 years.
[02:45:02] <bytram> yummy
[02:45:23] <bytram> I need to be back at work in 11 hours.
[02:45:41] <takyon> how long is your commute
[02:47:29] <bytram> about 15 minutes, depends a lot on traffic
[02:47:44] <bytram> sometimes 10, sometimes 20. Add a blizzard, can be an hour.
[02:48:00] <takyon> let's not add a blizzard
[02:48:24] * bytram notes it sure beats the daily commute he used to have into Cambridge, MA -- *THAT* ws traffic
[02:49:06] <bytram> If I left home before 6am, i could make the trip in just over 30 minutes; wait until 8am? Could take 1h to 1h15m, assuming no accidents
[02:56:55] <bytram> well, the spirit is willing, but hte flesh is weak...
[02:57:00] bytram is now known as Bytram
[02:57:30] * Bytram|away needs to call it an early night, though I did manage to push out one story.
[02:57:39] <Bytram|away> ~gnight takyon
[02:57:41] * exec allegedly pukes a tube of nuts on takyon
[02:57:46] <takyon> night bytram
[02:58:10] <Bytram|away> ~gnight cmn32480
[02:58:12] * exec half-heartedly gives birth to a petabyte of hatred for cmn32480
[02:58:20] * Bytram|away wonders what kind of nuts? Cashew? Walnut? Pecan? Republicans?
[02:58:29] <Bytram|away> =)
[02:58:45] <Bytram|away> takyon: thanks! I hope you have a good night, as well!
[12:30:32] <nick> giraffeternoon
[12:34:25] * cmn32480 notes that nick is at the zoo
[12:35:32] <nick> IRC often bares a striking resemblance to a circus zoo
[12:35:58] <cmn32480> so does my office
[12:36:37] <nick> lots of screaming, howling and humping from the wild animals within?
[12:38:31] <cmn32480> well... not so much the third one
[12:38:42] <cmn32480> but the first two happen on occassion.
[12:40:12] <nick> i can see you jumping up and down on the desk like an angry chimp or something after a particularly trying phone call with some of your colleagues
[12:40:37] <cmn32480> just worry when I start throwing feces
[12:41:12] <nick> i'm guessing you save that for the sales dept when they pay a visit in person
[12:54:48] <cmn32480> good guess...
[12:54:57] <cmn32480> I haven't to this point... but I will keep it in mind!

[18:26:16] <cmn32480> that'd be my daughter.. some years back
[18:26:29] <cmn32480> she was probably about 6moths old or so at the time
[18:26:40] <janrinok> no, not at all, I was actually searching for an article that you wrote some years back. Ah, the testicle nobbler herself, was it?
[18:26:49] <cmn32480> lol
[18:26:49] <cmn32480> yes
[18:26:57] <cmn32480> the wirless Spotlight on IT article?
[18:27:09] <janrinok> I thought so, you could see it in her eyes...
[18:27:24] <janrinok> Yep, that's the article. Just fancied reading it again, and I found it
[18:27:39] <cmn32480> really? YOu read it voluntarily?
[18:27:45] <cmn32480> I don't think anybody did that...
[18:27:53] <janrinok> I am rather bored at this time of the evening ...
[18:28:44] <cmn32480> ahhh
[18:28:57] <cmn32480> sorry... wish I could be more entertaining
[18:29:49] <janrinok> Oh, I laughed my cotton socks off - you really do sound quite knowledgeable when you bullshit convincingly
[18:30:11] <cmn32480> why thank you
[18:30:27] <cmn32480> now if only I could pull that off in rel life, I'd be in sales!
[18:30:35] <janrinok> seriously though, I thought it well written and I came away slightly more knowledgeable than before I had read it again
[18:30:53] <cmn32480> at least somebody learned somethign from it

[18:32:21] <janrinok> sounds like a link going down somewhere or other...
[18:32:49] <cmn32480> or he got klined
[18:33:17] <janrinok> klined? is that a term I#m not au fait with or one of your typing attempts
[18:34:27] <cmn32480> it is a temporary ban from IRC
[18:34:46] <janrinok> ah, thx for that.
[18:34:50] <cmn32480> usually set for a set number of minutes
[18:40:58] <janrinok> got your bags packed ready for tomorrow?
[18:45:18] <cmn32480> hell no
[18:45:31] <cmn32480> that'll happen tonight.. but I think my ice pack might melt in the mean time
[18:46:04] <janrinok> Have you let the airline know that you need extra ice during the flight, particularly if there is turbulence?
[18:50:59] <cmn32480> 737 won't hold that much ice
[18:52:03] <janrinok> lol
[18:52:44] <cmn32480> it'll be ok
[18:52:56] <cmn32480> I'm, hoping the flight will be uneventful
[18:53:28] <janrinok> I'm sure that, other than walking like John Wayne, you will appear completely normal'ish
[18:53:39] <cmn32480> as normal as I ever was
[18:53:47] <janrinok> I did say 'ish
[18:53:58] <cmn32480> adn what's the problem with John Wayne, pilgrim?
[18:54:22] <janrinok> nothing, I just not sure that Carolina is the place to walk like hime
[18:54:25] <janrinok> him*
[18:54:35] <cmn32480> nope.. prolly not
[18:54:45] <cmn32480> I'll jsut have to pretend
[18:55:07] <janrinok> Or hire a horse for the duration of the visit - although that might be a little too painful
[18:55:17] <cmn32480> i'd rather walk funny
[18:55:53] <chromas> put on some leathers and pretend you ride a steel horse
[18:56:12] <janrinok> he's still not getting much sympathy, is he?
[18:56:26] <cmn32480> you noticed?
[18:56:31] <janrinok> yep
[18:56:51] <cmn32480> everythgin yesterday adn today has been a dick joke... even in the office
[18:57:13] <cmn32480> my boss was in for a bit this morning adn I had to ask him to lift a printer for me
[18:57:14] <janrinok> and you expected something different?
[18:57:25] <cmn32480> I think yhe is still giggling about it
[18:59:46] <janrinok> time to go again. See you back on here sometime during the week. ~gnight all
[18:59:57] <janrinok> ~gnight all

[19:00:44] <cmn32480> ~gnight janrinok
