[18:58:43] <janrinok> what, like dancing around, fighting each other, just going mad?
[18:58:50] <janrinok> nick!!!
[18:59:16] <nick> janrinok !!
[18:59:23] <cmn32480> ther is just a complete sense of "DUH????" in the air today
[18:59:26] <cmn32480> I dunno what it is
[18:59:38] <janrinok> you in the US now nick?
[18:59:54] <nick> indeed i am
[18:59:56] <cmn32480> maybe THAT's why things are funky
[19:00:01] <nick> slightly frozen
[19:00:08] <janrinok> I'm surprised they let you in ...
[19:00:17] <cmn32480> he's in the great white north
[19:00:28] <cmn32480> 19 feet of snow and counting
[19:00:42] <nick> cant even see out the windows
[19:01:31] <janrinok> got your new lappy now?
[19:01:33] <cmn32480> that's because it is night nick
[19:01:39] <nick> how are things for janrinok and cmn32480
[19:01:56] <cmn32480> warmer than you!
[19:01:56] <nick> janrinok, indeed, although there are technical difficulties with it
[19:02:04] <janrinok> good for me, just had a visit from my son who I hadn't seen since 2015
[19:02:38] <janrinok> send it back job, or can you fix it locally?
[19:03:19] <nick> im pondering on what to do, if i send it back, they'll only refund me not replace as they dont have it in stock anymore
[19:04:00] <cmn32480> you talk to MSI?
[19:04:01] <janrinok> do you get a cash refund or simply a credit order?
[19:04:22] <nick> cmn32480, not yet
[19:04:32] <cmn32480> tick tock
[19:04:38] <nick> it will be credit, but either way it defeats the point of buying it
[19:04:43] <janrinok> yup
[19:05:12] <nick> i got it for $900, the closest equivalent is now $1400
[19:05:24] <janrinok> bait and switch?
[19:05:28] <nick> so with the refund i could only by something worse
[19:05:56] <nick> it's a problem with the touchpad buttons, so for now i'm just using an external mouse and have the buttons disabled and using touchpad for tapping
[19:06:27] <nick> and as it's the size of a dinner tray, i'm not really planning on using it as anything other than a desktop anyway
[19:06:28] <janrinok> sorry to hear that - you were looking forward to it, too
[19:06:51] <nick> out of all the things that could be wrong, it's the easiest thing to work around
[19:07:08] <janrinok> is it a hardware or software prob?
[19:07:32] * cmn32480 passes the viagra to make the software hardware
[19:07:46] <nick> it seems like a software problem, but i'm not sure... i loaded up linux on a usb stick to see if it was windows being an ass
[19:07:49] <nick> and same issue
[19:08:02] * janrinok thinks that sounds like a man with certain experience
[19:08:23] <cmn32480> we have ALL experienced Windows being an ass
[19:08:30] <nick> the buttons work, but as soon as you touch the touchpad or left button, it thinks the left button is always being pressed
[19:09:14] <cmn32480> witht he external mouse installed, haove you uninstaleld adn reinstalled the touchpad drivers and software?
[19:10:16] <nick> i have indeed
[19:10:33] <nick> but as i said, even on linux, same issue
[19:10:34] <cmn32480> sounds liek the button isn't releasinga after the first touch
[19:11:00] <nick> it does it as soon as it's activated, touch the touchpad and it thinks the button has been pressed
[19:13:51] <janrinok> not a lot that I can add
[19:14:30] <nick> i spent a lot of time fucking around with it, trying to figure out a solution and i've not come up with anything
[19:14:51] <nick> but as i said, it's the easiest thing to work around, if it was the keyboard ....
[19:15:03] <janrinok> but but but does the keyboard light up!
[19:15:17] <nick> yes it does, pretty lights!
[19:15:22] <janrinok> bargain
[19:15:40] <cmn32480> multi-colored?
[19:15:46] <nick> can have it set to music too, so it tries to flash and change colour with the music
[19:15:47] <cmn32480> or rotating colors?
[19:16:00] <cmn32480> DAYMN!!
[19:16:13] <nick> it has 3 zones and you can set the colours, but it will change them if you have it set to 'wave' or
[19:16:17] <nick> music

[19:17:09] <janrinok> what is the cheapest model that you can find that does all the same things?
[19:19:18] <nick> about $1300
[19:19:45] <janrinok> and that is more than you are prepared to pay?
[19:20:01] <nick> yeah, i wasn't really happy about paying the $900
[19:20:30] <janrinok> understood. I would have thought that they would have to give you your money back, but I don't know US law
[19:20:46] <nick> it's complicated, i paid for it with bitcoin
[19:20:57] <janrinok> ah, yes, I remember now
[19:21:17] <nick> im still considering going direct to the manufacturer
[19:21:23] <cmn32480> if he had gotten one fo the first 4 that were ordered, it woudl not have been a problem.'
[19:21:28] <nick> lol
[19:21:43] <cmn32480> call MSI
[19:21:47] <cmn32480> it can't hurt
[19:21:57] <cmn32480> maybe they will jsut fix it for you
[19:21:59] <cmn32480> under warranty
[19:22:16] <janrinok> well, somebody should
[19:23:02] <nick> think i'll wait until after xmas at this point, give me a chance to make sure everything else works
[19:23:38] <nick> don't know how long they might take to repair it though#
[19:24:16] <cmn32480> why not call and find out?
[19:24:54] <nick> right now i dont have a phone to use
[19:25:11] <nick> i will get my local representative to do it
[19:25:25] <cmn32480> the people you are staying with don't have a phone? wow... you ARE in the sticks...
[19:25:47] <janrinok> or he only stays with very poor people
[19:26:01] <nick> lol
[19:26:06] <nick> could be a bit of both
[19:26:29] <cmn32480> sell the $900 laptop and make a profit!
[19:26:59] <nick> us immigration might take that as working
[19:27:09] <nick> buying and selling goods
[19:27:11] <cmn32480> touche'
[19:27:35] <nick> i'm glad i didn't get interrogated like when i came to the US in 09
[19:28:08] <nick> but i guess i do go to weird places in the US, not the typical tourist destinations
[19:28:08] <janrinok> well, you are lucky that you weren't blocked by a wall coming from the south as you did
[19:28:29] <cmn32480> that woudl ahve been a VERY tall wall to block the airplacne
[19:28:41] <nick> and the 'im here for the holidays, for 2 months' raised an eyebrow
[19:28:53] <janrinok> how big was the iron curtain?
[19:28:56] <cmn32480> just one eyebrow?
[19:29:15] <nick> they have also changed shit since i was here last, you get all your fingerprints taken now.
[19:29:15] <cmn32480> bigger than Trump's hair
[19:29:18] <janrinok> well the guy only had one eye
[19:30:43] <nick> international travel isnt as fun as it used to be
[19:31:05] <cmn32480> nick: s/international//
[19:31:06] <exec> <cmn32480> <nick> travel isnt as fun as it used to be
[19:31:30] <nick> cmn32480, opinions on united vs american airlines?
[19:34:28] <janrinok> he's obviously gone somewhere to cry now that you have asked him that
[19:35:01] <nick> lol
[19:35:02] <cmn32480> sorry
[19:35:19] <cmn32480> I prefer United, but it has been years since I flew eitehr United or American
[19:35:35] <cmn32480> All of my in country flights in the last 5-7 yeasrs have been on Southwest.
[19:35:47] * cmn32480 wipes a tear away
[19:37:08] <nick> i had the opposite feeling, american was a lot better than united, staff more pleasant, seats more comfortable
[19:37:31] <nick> i was lucky for my long haul from south america, i had 3 seats to myself
[19:37:54] <janrinok> enough to lie across?
[19:38:13] <nick> yeah
[19:38:19] <janrinok> lucky indeed
[19:38:27] <nick> it seemed like there was only about 30 people in cattle class
[19:38:37] <nick> so pretty much everyone had 2 or 3 seats to themselves
[19:45:08] * cmn32480 hasn't flown any "full service" airline in years
[19:45:24] <cmn32480> J was pregnant w/ the 6 year old last time we flew to Hawaii
[19:45:40] * janrinok hasn't flown for almost 10 years - and I was once aircrew!
[19:46:03] <cmn32480> obviously you learned somethign that they don't teach us regular folk
[19:46:15] <janrinok> yup
[19:46:48] <janrinok> if you fly in military aircraft, they tend to send you where people shoot at you
[19:47:48] <cmn32480> that's a good lesson to learn
[19:47:57] <nick> i was glad they had heineken on the long haul flight, was concerned there would only be american beer.
[19:48:32] <janrinok> I think that is covered under 'cruelty' in the Geneva Convention
[19:48:36] * cmn32480 passes Budweiser's all around
[19:48:59] <janrinok> Budweisers taste like they have been passed several times
[19:49:18] <cmn32480> as number #1 or #2?
[19:49:31] <janrinok> yes!
[19:52:08] <cmn32480> agreed
[19:55:44] <janrinok> soon be time for me to go
[19:55:53] <cmn32480> wish I had that problem
[19:56:16] <janrinok> at my age going isn't a problem, stopping is the problem
[19:56:34] <cmn32480> kegels
[19:56:38] <cmn32480> that shodl help
[19:56:59] * janrinok dashes off to google
[19:57:15] * cmn32480 infiltrates the tracking infrastructure
[19:57:37] <janrinok> track away - I haven't a clue where I am either
[19:57:57] * cmn32480 examines the data
[19:58:03] <cmn32480> looks like you are in DeNile
[19:58:12] <cmn32480> that seems to be in DeEgypt
[19:58:21] * cmn32480 wonders if janrinok's feet are wet
[19:58:41] * janrinok checks, but thinks it is sea water
[19:58:56] * cmn32480 looks closer to the delta
