[22:32:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram!
[22:33:09] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: !
[22:33:16] <Bytram> g'day, how you be/
[22:33:17] <Bytram> ?
[22:33:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> peachy keen, jellybean
[22:34:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> i was wondering how a finger lands you in the hospital for days. did you by chance stick it in a tiger's rectum?
[22:34:22] <Bytram> nah.
[22:34:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> damn. that woulda been a good story.
[22:34:34] <Bytram> tis winter and the air is very dry
[22:35:03] <Bytram> also, the chemicals in the ultrasonic jewelry cleaner we use tends to sap body oils
[22:35:05] <Bytram> so, skin got very dry and split
[22:35:13] <Bytram> maybe 3-5 mm wide
[22:35:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> blerg
[22:35:24] <Bytram> but about as deep as well
[22:35:44] <Bytram> worse, grew larger under the skin than on top
[22:35:50] <Bytram> unbeknownst to me
[22:35:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> woopsie
[22:36:10] <Bytram> some little bugger 'germ' started reproducing down there
[22:36:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh, went n tried to get septic on ya, did it?
[22:36:27] <Bytram> started to ooze pus, so hit it with H2O2
[22:36:53] <Bytram> grew some more, so another soak with h2o2, anttbiotic cream, too.
[22:37:20] <Bytram> had a day off two days away, so just self-tended til I had time to see the doc
[22:37:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya know what you need? regular exposure to children. get that immune system cranked up to 11.
[22:37:44] <Bytram> he put me on antibiotics, but was too late
[22:38:24] <Bytram> next morning, my arm had swollen to about 150% normal size, was red, and sore
[22:38:24] <Bytram> went back to doc first thing
[22:38:27] <Bytram> he said I needed to go to Emergency Room for IV antibiotics (he used to be an ER doc)
[22:38:55] <Bytram> so I went in, and it was pretty thoroughly in my system; took 5 days of IVs 6to finally get it under control
[22:39:45] <Bytram> if I'd waited another day or two, it might have gotten into my blood stream aka sepsis
[22:39:45] <Bytram> so, good that I did have it attended to
[22:39:51] <Bytram> still have my life and my arm
[22:39:54] <Bytram> and my middle finger, too
[22:39:55] <Bytram> =)
[22:40:20] <Bytram> the finger looks like hell, but it'll heal up; look like new in 6 months they dsiad
[22:40:26] <Bytram> *said
[22:40:50] <Bytram> as for regular exposure to children, I've got that and more... I work retail, remember?
[22:40:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> ye gads man. only you.
[22:41:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> ah, true. probably how you got the superbug then. nothing else could survive the thunderdome.
[22:41:33] <Bytram> I have a natural-born gift for things going sideways in my vicinity -- that's why I am so good at QA!
[22:41:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> troof
[22:42:03] <Bytram> I figured if it was going to happen anyway, I might as well get apid for it.
[22:42:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> hey, cmn32480 has another job opening. you should tell him to hire you and give you lots of moneys.
[22:42:27] <Bytram> get paid
[22:42:27] <Bytram> SEE! ;)
[22:43:02] <Bytram> nah, don;t know squat about networking and my shoulders are pretty shot... wouldn't last but a few weeks
[22:43:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh
[22:43:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> bummer
[22:43:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> i still got one good shoulder. s'the only joint sides my elbows that works right still i believe.
[22:43:58] <Bytram> well, I do know a few things about the theory, and I've got the general concepts down pretty well, but when it comes to particular implementations... :(
[22:45:00] <Bytram> getting a little close to the hardware compared to my area of expertise which tends to be higher in the software stack...
[22:45:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> we could start pestering you instead of audioguy and mechanicjay for SN stuff. it's not overly complex as far as SMBs go.
[22:45:40] <Bytram> though, that said, there was a time when I was testing the IBM VM OS and had times when I was single-stepping a mainframe and reading assembly instruction in hex.
[22:46:22] <Bytram> have a passing interest on that, will come with exposure; would rather get into writing code
[22:47:05] <Bytram> am getting REALLY sick of improvising by running ubuntu in a VM; would be much, MUCH happier and more productive if I had a native box I could work from.
[22:47:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> hrm...
[22:47:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> wonder if SN would run on a raspberry pi
[22:48:08] <Bytram> have been hoping that with the holidays behind us, there might be someone who has a new box which has superseded their old one and would be willing to give it a new home.
[22:48:38] * Bytram cringes. I'm patient, but that it pushing things just a bit, doncha think?
[22:49:29] <Bytram> though, that said, it would be kinda neat to have a half dozen RPis, one each acting as front-end, backend, etc.
[22:49:54] <Bytram> but, for getting up to speed and getting the feel of things? too bleedingly edgy for my liking.
[22:50:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'm pretty sure we could run the site on one if they had faster networking and otherwise IO
[22:50:23] <Bytram> only has 1MB RAM, right?
[22:50:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah man, you install linux on it like anything else.
[22:50:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod
[22:51:38] <Bytram> and that littleRPi would be running everything? at 1.2 GHz? with a (slow) SD card for main storage?
[22:51:59] <Bytram> and how many multi-gig Linodes do we have?
[22:53:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> sd card access isn't that slow. the network access is though cause USB1
[22:53:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> so would be an external hdd
[22:54:06] <Bytram> nodnod
[22:55:01] <Bytram> is an interesting thought experiment, but for a few more $, I suspect one could get a much more performant system running....
[22:55:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> yar. $200-ish you can get a laptop with 4GB of ram and 32GB of storage. not upgradable for shit though.
[22:56:01] <Bytram> maybe a $200 chromebook, reformatted with a linux install (/me has heard the term crouton bandied about)
[22:56:01] <Bytram> yuppers
[22:56:13] <Bytram> or, prolly a referb small-formfactor business desktop.
[22:56:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> hp stream is better'n most chromebooks.
[22:56:53] <Bytram> neither seen nor used one, but heard good things about it.
[22:57:27] <Bytram> heck I'm on a core 2 duo with 6 (8?) GB RAM and a 500GB 7200 RPM disk and am okay with that.
[22:57:32] * TheMightyBuzzard looks at his laptops and debates
[22:57:42] <Bytram> would not at all mind something faster, but it is much better than my old box.
[22:58:42] <Bytram> that was an HP lappy with a 1 GB RAM, 80GB 5400 RPM disk with an Athlon 64 @ 1-2 GHz.
[22:59:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> what'd ya do with it? that's plenty to run SN on.
[22:59:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> well at least a dev box
[22:59:45] <Bytram> hmmm, maybe there's someone in the SN community whose workplace would like to donate a used / destined-for-the-recycle-bin system?
[23:00:19] <Bytram> well, ultimately, get my butt offn MS stuff... but I have literally over 1000 .BAT programs I've written
[23:00:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> i got a spare but it's down to one working usb port and that's currently took up with the wireless fob cause linux can't do its onboard wireless.
[23:00:55] <Bytram> they're all modular and have help and all, but is just the shear amount of work, so woul dhave to run things in parallel for at least a year to get things to somewhat equivalent
[23:01:23] <Bytram> appreciate the thought... I *really* do... but I'm kind strange that way
[23:01:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> naw man, you slap linux on the laptop for learnin then use the bat files on your desktop.
[23:02:00] <Bytram> I'll putter along forever on a slow-as-cold-beans system but once it starts getting better that that, I'm an impatient git.
[23:02:20] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod.
[23:02:42] <Bytram> anyway, though I'm back to work, doesn't mean I'm fully recovered. I think I need me a nap before I head out for the evening to meet with some friends.
[23:02:52] <Bytram> have very much enjoyed chatting with ya!
[23:03:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> enjoy. one of these days you'll be as good as me at it.
[23:03:18] <Bytram> btw, I've been utterly amazed at how quickly I've adpated to typing with one less finger
[23:03:35] <Bytram> and pretty much everything else...
[23:03:52] <Bytram> at first, Iwas suprised at how much I used it in gripping and holding and doing whatever
[23:04:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> s'why we gots so many of em
[23:04:09] <Bytram> but equally amazed at how fast I adpated to make best use of whatever abilitiesI had
[23:04:47] <Bytram> humans are amazingly flexible and seem to make max use of whatever is avail. or at least I've been impressed with my own ability to adapt
[23:04:56] <Bytram> anyways... nappy time
[23:05:14] <Bytram> be good and don't catch all the fish at once, k?
[23:05:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> gonna try to make them queue up
[23:06:14] <Bytram> and then pick 'em off, one by one, with a .22 -- amirite?
[23:06:47] * Bytram pictured a classic country fair shoot-em-up-for-a-prize
[23:07:04] <Bytram> ok.... this time for sure! laters!
[23:07:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> laters
