[01:08:04] <BadCoderFinger> SpallsHurgenson: Hey Spalls!
[01:08:27] <SpallsHurgenson> good evening, distingished gentlemen and ladies; what engrossing and edifying topic shall we discuss in length this evening?
[01:08:47] <BadCoderFinger> I'm sure something horrible is imminent.
[01:09:35] <arti> Let's discuss the merits of GPL vs BSD licenses.
[01:09:45] <SpallsHurgenson> hopefully nothing to prurient, sophomoric and crude; I am far too sophisticated to debase myself with discourse of that nature
[01:09:48] <arti> Also, $os sucks.
[01:11:16] <SpallsHurgenson> perhaps we can also engage ourselves with deliberation as to finally determine which religion is the correct one. :)
[01:12:38] <BadCoderFinger> SpallsHurgenson: Feel free to offer a suggestion. I'm of the mind that the time to believe something is when it is supported by evidence.
[01:13:15] <SpallsHurgenson> I myself am leaning in favor of the Church of Ed Wood for no particular reason other than nobody else is likely to even consider it
[01:14:18] <BadCoderFinger> It would be a rather exclusive church.
[01:14:28] <chromas> (knock knock knock) Hello sir. Do you have Wood in your heart?
[01:14:46] <BadCoderFinger> That'll root out the Twilight fans!
[01:14:49] <chromas> Do you know Wood? Would you like to have Wood in you?
[01:15:54] <SpallsHurgenson> sounds like a bad pickup line

[01:31:32] <SpallsHurgenson> heh
[01:32:43] <SpallsHurgenson> Understanding is a three-edged sword.
[01:33:07] <SpallsHurgenson> You seek meaning? Then listen to the music, not the song.
[01:33:49] <SpallsHurgenson> The avalanche has already started. It is too late for the pebbles to vote.
[01:34:20] <Subsentient> SpallsHurgenson: Well put.
[01:34:22] <Subsentient> hehehe
[01:34:24] <Subsentient> I love Kosh

[01:36:42] <SpallsHurgenson> that's because you have been genetically programmed to :)
[01:37:06] <Subsentient> SpallsHurgenson: Ahh, I see you are a real Babylon fan.
[01:37:22] * Subsentient shakes SpallsHurgenson 's hand

[01:38:42] <SpallsHurgenson> although to be fair, I do not have any Crusade stuff
[01:38:55] <Subsentient> Same.
[01:39:15] * SpallsHurgenson hangs his head in shame and prepares to give up his nerd card, if such a sacrifice is required atonment for this failing
[01:39:37] <Subsentient> SpallsHurgenson: Nope, you seem adequate.
[01:40:00] * SpallsHurgenson snorts happily
[01:40:06] <n1> i had mine revoked as soon as it was issued, not a fan of sci-fi
[01:40:25] <SpallsHurgenson> we cannot be friends, n1
[01:40:47] <n1> honesty doesnt count for anything? :(
[01:41:23] <SpallsHurgenson> not more than sci-fi, no :)
[01:41:53] <SpallsHurgenson> next you'll be telling me you don't have any funky polyhedral dice
[01:42:19] <n1> i dont think ive ever had dice, funky or otherwise.

[01:43:24] <SpallsHurgenson> good god, man. But at least you can quote Monty Python, right?

[01:45:41] -!- mode/#Soylent [+v nick] by juggler
[01:45:49] <SpallsHurgenson> nonetheless, everyone should always have a spare d20 in their pockets... just in case :)
[01:45:53] <nick> ahem, before i got disconnected for being non-nerd
[01:46:07] -!- n1 has quit [Killed (NickServ (GHOST command used by nick))]
[01:46:10] nick is now known as n1
[01:46:14] <SpallsHurgenson> the internet is trying to tell you something :)
[01:46:19] <n1> i can quote monty python though
[01:46:41] <n1> but do have the cultural advantage of living most of my life in the UK
[01:46:57] <SpallsHurgenson> even the series 4 stuff that's terrible? :)
[01:47:27] <n1> not all of the tv stuff
[01:47:31] <n1> movies though
[01:47:39] <n1> and the 'greatest hits' of the tv series most likely
[01:47:56] <SpallsHurgenson> there'd better be at least one Holy Grail quote in there...
[01:49:04] <n1> holy grail, life of brian and the best of the flying circus i know quite well
[01:49:44] <n1> which isn't bad since all the classic monty python came out before i was born
[01:49:45] * SpallsHurgenson tests n1: if your father smelt of elderberries, what was your mother?
[01:50:19] <n1> hamster
[01:50:39] <n1> on a side note: hamsters are awesome
[01:51:08] <SpallsHurgenson> hmmm... alright. The nerd community may deign to speak to you, should they so choose.
[01:51:51] <n1> i only got the card for the discount on snacks really anyways.
[01:52:26] <SpallsHurgenson> peeps, pringles and pizza?
[01:52:53] <n1> i didnt know pringles was included
[01:53:33] <SpallsHurgenson> they were added to the official diet after the Nerd Convocation of 1997
[01:53:58] <n1> thats good to know, if i get my card back. pringles are crazy expensive for regular mortals these days you know
[01:54:40] <SpallsHurgenson> not so much because nerds like the crisps but we wanted the cans for wifi :)
[01:55:48] <n1> conflicted, prefer cables especially on networks...

[01:56:36] <Hedonismbot> ^ 03Video Game Violence and Pseudoscience: Bad Science, Fear, and Politics - CSI
[01:57:35] <BadCoderFinger> I'm with n1, cables are best. Wifi when I have to, but I prefer gigabit when I'm backing up 490GB of /home
[01:58:00] <SpallsHurgenson> (not a related URL to the nerdly discussion, just my semi-regular "interesting link that someone less lazy than me might want to submit to soylent" contribution :)
[01:58:44] <SpallsHurgenson> I realized the other day that all my PCs support gigabit... I need to update my infrastructure to take advantage of that
[01:59:10] <n1> hmmm
[01:59:16] <SpallsHurgenson> of course, most of the data I'd be pulling is stored on USB 2.0 external drives so I wouldn't see much advantage... but it's the principle of the thing! :)
[02:01:12] <n1> i assumed the router i got recently was gigabit
[02:01:14] <n1> apparently not
[02:01:34] <chromas> Gigafast is just a brand name :(
[02:01:57] <SpallsHurgenson> I'd need new routers and switches... and probably cable in some cases :(
[02:01:58] <n1> as opposed to?
[02:02:30] <chromas> They make switches and stuff, but aren't necessarily gigabit speed
[02:02:31] <n1> SpallsHurgenson, if you havnt already i would suggest looking at tp-link for good value switches and routers
[02:02:37] <BadCoderFinger> SpallsHurgenson: 5E is pretty cheap these days, unless you're buying from BestBuy.
[02:03:10] <chromas> SpallsHurgenson: you need directional diamond $5k cables
[02:03:14] <n1> i havnt seen anything but 5e around for forever
[02:03:16] <BadCoderFinger> Heh!
[02:03:20] <SpallsHurgenson> I buy from the "Hey, are we throwing this stuff out?" bin at work :)
[02:03:28] <n1> im sure monster will hook you up with a set of good cables though
[02:03:41] <n1> ah, i remember those days fondly
[02:04:11] <SpallsHurgenson> never give those days up! :)
[02:04:12] <n1> got like 3km of cat5e that way
[02:04:29] <SpallsHurgenson> sure I could AFFORD to buy stuff... but free garbage!
[02:04:39] <n1> i wish it was that simple, being self-employed it's quite expensive
[02:04:42] <juggs> ~weather
[02:04:43] <exec> 03London, UK - currently 38°F / 3°C, clear, wind SW at 5 mph, humidity 78% - Tuesday clear with periodic clouds (33°F-48°F / 1°C-9°C), Wednesday sunny (39°F-52°F / 4°C-11°C), Thursday rain (40°F-49°F / 4°C-9°C), Friday rain (35°F-48°F / 2°C-9°C)
[02:04:47] <n1> because either way i'm paying for it somewhere
[02:04:48] <SpallsHurgenson> oh, no bin for you :)
[02:05:01] <n1> if it goes in the bin, it's because its shit
[02:05:14] <n1> if it's half decent but useless to me, it gets donated to someone else
[02:05:24] <SpallsHurgenson> although there is always the "oh <relative>, great to hear you upgraded; say, what are you doing with <old device>?" :)
[02:05:49] <n1> with the relatives, i'm in the situation of trying to get them to throw stuff away also
[02:06:17] <SpallsHurgenson> I'm sorry, I am not familiar with the concept of "throw stuff away"
[02:06:35] <n1> i have wasted so much of my time trying to get printers from 1992 to work on the latest OS X
[02:06:54] <SpallsHurgenson> mmm, HP Laserjet 5 :)
[02:07:01] <n1> because the printer was a "good deal" 5 years ago when they ripped it out of an office for being old and broken
[02:07:07] <SpallsHurgenson> the reward is well worth the effort.
[02:07:28] <SpallsHurgenson> back when HP made hardware that could take a bullet :)
[02:07:50] <juggs> I still have an ancient windows only scanner knocking around - have to fire up a win2K VM to get it to work. Beats buying a new one for the little scanning I do
[02:07:52] <n1> or wanting to run new software on windows and being told they have a 'new' machine
[02:08:04] <n1> which has a 1ghz celeron and xp
[02:08:17] <n1> and the software needs 4gb ram
[02:09:19] <n1> juggs, thats fair enough
[02:09:33] <SpallsHurgenson> bah, 4GB? We went to the moon with less than 50K!
[02:09:45] <n1> the printer situation involves a family member who prints every day for work
[02:10:06] <n1> but gets supplied with 'cheap' old laserjets
[02:10:14] <JamesNZ> SpallsHurgenson: To be fair, we didn't have windows back then :)
[02:10:14] <n1> usually thrown out by a previous owner for good reason
[02:10:35] <SpallsHurgenson> good reason = new thing is shiny!
[02:10:42] <SpallsHurgenson> (nine times out of ten)
[02:10:57] <n1> these are ex-corporate ones
[02:11:05] <SpallsHurgenson> http://www.businesswire.com sort of a slashvertisment but I like logitech hardware :)
[02:11:06] <Hedonismbot> ^ 03Logitech Wins 10 Prestigious Product Design Awards | Business Wire
[02:11:11] <n1> have had 10 years of hard use
[02:11:18] <n1> and the ink is expensive or impossible to find
[02:11:28] <n1> and always need tweaking, conviniently by the person who sells them cheap
[02:12:30] <SpallsHurgenson> (although I just had to buy a new m705 because the left-mouse-button was losing its click :/
[02:13:01] <n1> i got a new keyboard recently
[02:13:20] <n1> crazy shiny and shit
[02:13:20] <BadCoderFinger> n1: What kind?
[02:13:24] <n1> microsoft 200 wired
[02:13:34] <SpallsHurgenson> I'm lucky in that I've always been satisfied with cheapo $5 keytronics :)
[02:13:55] <n1> because the hp one from 1996 wasn't as good as the one i had from 92
[02:14:07] <SpallsHurgenson> the only thing I really care about my keyboard is that it doesn't have any sort of wrist rest.
[02:14:07] <n1> so i thought i'd try a new 'real' keyboard
[02:14:10] <BadCoderFinger> I have a Kinesis Advantage. Trying to stave off carpal tunnel.
[02:14:23] <n1> nice
[02:14:49] <BadCoderFinger> I reprogrammed it to Colemak and replaced the keys with blanks.
[02:15:02] <n1> just because?
[02:15:08] <SpallsHurgenson> I just want a board and keys with as little extra plastic as possible. sort of like this:
[02:15:36] <SpallsHurgenson> and it has to be black. you can have a keyboard in any color you want, so long as its black :)
[02:15:42] <BadCoderFinger> Try a Happy Hacker keyboard!
[02:16:24] <juggs> It appears to have no numpad
[02:16:29] <SpallsHurgenson> needs a numpad :)
[02:16:47] <n1> agree
[02:16:52] <SpallsHurgenson> and arrow keys. how am I supposed to make the cursor move up and down without arrow keys?
[02:17:31] <n1> if that had all the keys, i would be down with it
[02:17:31] <juggs> http://www.pfusystems.com has cursor keys bottom right
[02:17:51] <n1> seems stupid without numpad and fkeys
[02:17:59] <SpallsHurgenson> nah, gimme a full-sized board. no function keys either
[02:18:35] <SpallsHurgenson> or prntscr/scrllck/pause-brk
[02:18:59] <SpallsHurgenson> okay, it turns out my keyboard needs to have a bit more than just no wrist rest :)
[02:19:43] <n1> get yourself a microsoft 200 wired keyboard
[02:19:49] <n1> only $13 msrp!
[02:20:10] <SpallsHurgenson> I don't like Microsoft hardware. I know lots of people rave about their mice and keyboards, but they've never worked well for me
[02:20:26] <n1> i havn't had any good ones to compare to really
[02:20:28] <SpallsHurgenson> (well, except for their sidewinder joysticks... those were awesome :)
[02:20:29] <BadCoderFinger> The Natural 4000 wasn't bad.
[02:20:55] <n1> i went from a 1992 packard bell keyboard to a 1996 hp one.
[02:21:06] <n1> that came bundled with low end consumer pcs of the day
[02:21:51] <n1> BadCoderFinger, i wouldnt mind trying that actually
[02:22:00] <juggs> That 200 looks like it would have soft feel key action.
[02:22:27] <SpallsHurgenson> sounds... pornographic :)
[02:22:36] <n1> i dont think it does
[02:22:51] <n1> it sounds and feels like a real keyboard to me
[02:23:02] <BadCoderFinger> New email: "Do you need key viagra? Click here!"
[02:23:04] <paulej72> I use a Natural 4000. Broke two of them
[02:23:08] <juggs> only 7 on amazon :D
[02:23:13] <paulej72> now have a spare
[02:23:21] <n1> juggs, i thought i bought it from amazon
[02:23:38] <n1> probably why i decided to try it out
[02:23:46] <n1> never really like the hp one i had before
[02:24:38] <n1> the 600 keyboard seems to be the one that actually has quiet touch keys
[02:24:39] <juggs> ooh - I never got on with that Natural Ergo layouts paulej72 - perhaps I should give them another try
[02:24:48] <n1> for $3 extra
[02:25:14] <n1> juggs, the 4000 looks like a good place to start
[02:25:26] <n1> and paulej72, broke but still buying them?
[02:25:47] * SpallsHurgenson waits impatiently for his phone number to transfer to his new phone...
[02:25:59] <paulej72> coffee in the first one, and the second may have been too many lunch crumbs
[02:26:18] <BadCoderFinger> Tell us what it is, and we'll call you! Also, we may sign you up to some phone lists.
[02:26:32] <n1> yeah, ive had that happen
[02:26:52] <paulej72> I figured the thrid would last forever if I have spare on hand
[02:27:01] <n1> smart planning
[02:29:37] <BadCoderFinger> If you're a coder, your primary instrument is the keyboard. You _should_ be picky about it.
[02:30:02] <n1> too right
[02:30:32] <n1> the right tool for the job is different for each person
[02:30:42] <BadCoderFinger> Definitely.
[02:30:54] <BadCoderFinger> But when you find one you love, buy ten of them, heh!
[02:31:01] <paulej72> I got my Natural after having some wrist pain. Luckily it went away with a new keyboarad and wearing wrist splints for a few days
[02:31:07] <BadCoderFinger> Not really an option for the Kinesis.
[02:31:25] <paulej72> Took a bit of time to git use to the keyboard.
[02:31:37] * SpallsHurgenson programs with MS Kinect :)
[02:31:49] <paulej72> You only need one model m per machine
[02:31:50] <BadCoderFinger> paulej72: Yeah, same with the Kinesis. Took a good bit to get used to. But I sure love it now.
[02:32:11] <n1> hard to adapt if you go back to a 'normal' keyboard?
[02:32:34] <BadCoderFinger> Not really, but it does take a minute or two for the old muscle memory to kick in.
[02:32:37] <SpallsHurgenson> the fact that I HATE using model M keyboards is what lost me my geek card
[02:32:37] <paulej72> no not really, as I use normal keyboars on my lappys
[02:32:43] <n1> yeah, i figured
[02:33:06] <BadCoderFinger> SpallsHurgenson: I don't like the Model M either. Too dang noisy.
[02:33:25] <BadCoderFinger> I put o-rings on my Kinesis keys, Quieted it down a decent bit.
[02:33:36] <BadCoderFinger> But doesn't feel mushy like most keyboards.
[02:34:19] <juggs> I like them to use clacky boards from a feel perspective, but the noise is a real pain in the ear.
[02:35:52] <BadCoderFinger> juggs: Any keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches, install the o-rings.
[02:37:59] <BadCoderFinger> Usually sold as "Gaming keyboards" and around $80, but you can catch them for $40 if you look

[02:39:18] <BadCoderFinger> Heh!
[02:40:11] <BadCoderFinger> juggs: I should have converted to pounds!
[02:41:23] <BadCoderFinger> Somewhere in the world, there's a country that is too snooty for British Pounds. Their currecy is called "kilos."
[02:41:29] <juggs> BadCoderFinger, don't worry, I convert USD to GBP in my head on the fly - so much I read is denoted in USD it's become 2nd nature
[02:42:09] <BadCoderFinger> juggs: Heh, I'm trying to do the same thing with F->C
[02:42:16] <BadCoderFinger> Degrees, that is.
[02:42:23] <paulej72> for a first pass i usually use $2/pound
[02:42:34] <juggs> that's what ciri is for :D
[02:42:39] <juggs> .c2f 0
[02:42:39] <ciri> Converted 0 Celsius => 32.0 Fahrenheit
[02:43:06] <juggs> paulej72, your a little out there :D My base is usually 1.6
[02:43:09] <paulej72> we should add a $ to pounds and euro converter to ciri
[02:43:20] <BadCoderFinger> Yeah, but I want my brain to do it. I'd wait for augmentation, but I'd be much too afraid to run windows in my brain.
[02:43:22] <paulej72> 1.6 is too hard to work with
[02:43:39] <SpallsHurgenson> .c2f -40
[02:43:39] <ciri> Converted -40 Celsius => -40.0 Fahrenheit
[02:43:41] <paulej72> 2 is much easer to do a first pass
[02:43:41] <ciri> 3
[02:43:42] <juggs> use 1.5 then fudge it
[02:44:31] <paulej72> if we have the British economy crash some we can get to that 1.5
[02:45:42] <juggs> Uh... it's ~1.53 now I believe
[02:46:29] <juggs> At least xe.com would have me believe
[02:53:47] <paulej72> well then we can use 1.5 and be all happy.
[02:56:20] <BadCoderFinger> New rule for global economists: Round to the nearest easy numbers. Should work about as well as the current voodoo.
[02:58:05] <juggs> it's all a bit messed up anyway - US prices are always quoted without sales tax, whereas generally UK prices are quoted inclusive of 20% VAT. For anything tech device related though it's more 1:1, something that sells for say $200 in the US will typically sell for 200 in the UK.
[02:58:37] <n1> and that hasnt changed at all
[02:58:47] <n1> you'd think they would have closed that down
[02:59:23] <BadCoderFinger> The reason prices don't include tax in the US: Marketing Uber Alles.
[02:59:28] <juggs> why? The price charged is the price the market will bear.
[02:59:29] <n1> although sometimes its actually cheaper to buy it on ebay from the us
[02:59:33] <n1> and pay the sales tax on it
[02:59:38] <n1> import tax
[02:59:39] <n1> even
[02:59:47] <juggs> BadCoderFinger, I thought it was due to differing taxes by state / locality
[02:59:51] <paulej72> 6000 differnt tax rates
[02:59:52] <BadCoderFinger> $9.99 is a psychological marker. "It's under $10!"
[03:00:16] <BadCoderFinger> Yeah, even cities can vary the amount of sales tax they charge.
[03:00:31] <paulej72> and I may be a bit off on that number but I think that is somthing that I rember reading
[03:00:39] <BadCoderFinger> But in this age of computers, that's a few microseconds of lookup.
[03:01:10] <paulej72> but a nationwide ad the number has to be one value
[03:01:45] <paulej72> we are just getting systems that can do a nation wide tax lookup.
[03:02:30] <SpallsHurgenson> <grumble mutter snarl snort> I hate dealing with cell phone companies
[03:03:02] <BadCoderFinger> SpallsHurgenson: They're all pure evil.
[03:03:10] <SpallsHurgenson> they managed to transfer the
[03:03:19] <SpallsHurgenson> number to the new phone... but not the attached account
[03:03:28] <mythterj> Nation wide tax is only part of the problem in the US, there are varing exemptions of elderly, type of goods sold, etc.
[03:03:42] <SpallsHurgenson> this sort of incompetence takes skill :)
[03:03:43] <BadCoderFinger> SpallsHurgenson: Sounds like you have a new identity!
[03:03:58] <paulej72> everyone does. I had an issue with a verizon phone that gave me bad echo. they basically said there was nothing wrong with it. I traded it in for a differnet model from a different manufacture and no more issues
[03:04:13] <SpallsHurgenson> and they can't fix it until regular business hours, because evil doesn't work overtime :)
[03:04:46] <BadCoderFinger> No, only the contractors work overtime.
[03:04:46] <SpallsHurgenson> so now I have TWO phones that don't work, yay! :)
[03:04:57] <n1> what area of the US has the most simple tax rules?
[03:05:06] <n1> im guessing even that is a complicated question beyond reason
[03:05:15] <SpallsHurgenson> there are no simple tax rules in the US
[03:05:30] <n1> i dont think there are anywhere, really. thats kind of the point of them, i assume.
[03:05:32] <SpallsHurgenson> and even if there were simple tax rules, they would be complicated :)
[03:05:45] <BadCoderFinger> n1: Even if I knew, I believe that place would still be a twisted morass of poop. Tax laws benefit lawyers and H&R Block.
[03:05:50] <paulej72> deleware, no sales tax
[03:05:58] <mythterj> Some states have no income tax, (+1) and some locations have no sales tax (+2).
[03:06:17] <SpallsHurgenson> yeah, but they make up for it in other ways :)
[03:06:23] <BadCoderFinger> Usually no income tax means a high sales tax rate.
[03:06:39] <n1> welcoming those tourists
[03:07:30] <mythterj> Friends in Alask pay no sales tax, or income tax, and he gets a couple thousand from the state every year - his share of the oil revenue.
[03:07:30] <BadCoderFinger> Tennessee has no state income tax, and a high sales tax.
[03:08:13] <BadCoderFinger> Yeah, the nation basically subsidizes you to live in Alaska. But bugger that, Denver is cold enough.
[03:09:20] <mythterj> The oil company subsidizes them.
[03:09:45] <paulej72> who pays the oil company
[03:09:51] <mythterj> He works for State Dept of Revenue, and they are singing the blues with the falling price of oil....
[03:09:57] <BadCoderFinger> We all pay the oil company!
[03:10:04] <mythterj> You do, at the pump.
[03:10:05] <paulej72> yuppers
[03:10:32] <paulej72> so it is the nation that pays and alaska get to ride free
[03:10:33] <SpallsHurgenson> that's why I carry a siphon hose :)
[03:10:53] <BadCoderFinger> SpallsHurgenson: Ha!
[03:11:46] <BadCoderFinger> According to your weather preference, you live in Thailand. Good luck siphoning that gas.
[03:12:39] <SpallsHurgenson> it's a really LONG hose :)

[14:41:15] <janrinok> hi guys
[14:41:28] <n1> hey janrinok
[14:41:41] <janrinok> hi nick
[14:42:15] <janrinok> how's things in your world?
[14:42:42] <n1> expensive but good
[14:42:58] <n1> thinking about saying fuck it and having the afternoon off
[14:43:02] <n1> how about you?
[14:43:04] <janrinok> lol - I thought you had the benefit of almost deflation?
[14:43:32] <n1> well, in general maybe
[14:43:41] <n1> but i just invested some money into the business, twice as much as i kind of planned on
[14:43:45] <janrinok> things are good here. Bright sunshine, cool but pleasant, and everyone reasonably well
[14:44:12] <janrinok> I hope it brings you good returns on your investment
[14:44:19] <n1> i'm staggering investing money back in over the last and next few months, but it just feels painful every other week throwing another few hundred into equipment and such
[14:45:16] <n1> yeah, got some sunshine here today which is nice
[14:49:09] <janrinok> there has been a good spread of editors over the last 48 hours - it has certainly eased the pressure a little
[14:50:07] <n1> yeah, when i did some last night we were 12hrs ahead by the time i'd finished
[14:50:40] <janrinok> yep - I can sleep much better when I'm not worrying about the queue!
[14:50:44] <n1> should be able to rely on me being here now, at least until festival season
[14:51:24] <janrinok> I agree with your comment on the HP story - do you want to move back to our own home?
[14:51:43] <n1> sure

[21:13:38] <crutchy> janet yellen reminds me of the witch from 'the sword in the sttone'
[21:15:10] <crutchy> wtf. how does "Russian President Vladimir Putin is calling on pro-Russian rebels to allow besieged Ukrainian troops safe passage out of the encircled town of Debaltseve in eastern Ukraine" warrant a headline like "Putin Demands Surrender of Encircled Ukrainian Troops"
[21:15:41] <n1> because evil russians
[21:16:28] * crutchy sighs. yeah seems to be the flavor of the year
[21:16:40] <n1> if it was the US/NATO doing exactly the same thing it would be "Obama brokers ceasefire in Debaltseve"
[21:16:46] <crutchy> lol
[21:17:07] <n1> am i wrong?
[21:17:19] <crutchy> unfortunately no
[21:17:41] <crutchy> news is depressing
[21:17:51] * crutchy closes browser
[21:18:05] <crutchy> how you been nick?
[21:18:05] <ciri> don't ask me!
[21:18:13] * n1 dropkicks ciri
[21:18:44] <n1> i've been good, thanks. feeling refreshed and trying not to let the depressing news get me down too much.
[21:18:51] <n1> how about yourself?
[21:19:30] <crutchy> i should try that. i'm ok really can't complain too much. about to head out for work. hoping its not raining cos i gotta walk today :p
[21:20:28] <n1> for me it was getting out of London and being reminded that the rest of the world isn't an urban/surburban jungle of concrete and profit profit profit
[21:20:48] <n1> walk? what is walk?
[21:22:39] <crutchy> hah. yeah i like walking. i'm lucky i live close enough to walk to work i guess
[21:23:09] <n1> walking is nice, in the right environment, same as cycling.
[21:23:16] <n1> but around these parts i find it just unpleasant
[21:23:58] <crutchy> i live around a bunch of coal-fired power stations and other industrial plant, so its not the nicest place either
[21:24:09] <n1> how long is the walk to work?
[21:24:10] <ciri> don't ask me!
[21:24:16] <crutchy> about 15 mins
[21:24:26] <n1> thats not too bad at all, can see why you would walk it
[21:24:32] <crutchy> anyway, best be off. have a good day matey
[21:24:42] <n1> take care, enjoy your walk ;)

[23:23:53] <chromas> getting a bit noisy in here; hard to keep up
[23:26:32] <n1> say what? i couldn't hear you over all the other people talking...
[23:27:54] <chromas> 'It said development of its health sensor technology has failed to meet standards, with inconsistency from sensor readings, arising from hairy arms or dry skin."
[23:28:13] <chromas> no problem. hipsters don't have that

[23:28:59] <n1> apple hasn't failed, evolution has failed apple
[23:29:17] <chromas> I wonder if apple's the only one whose smartwatch/health bands have that issue
[23:30:01] <n1> can't say i really care, we dont need more people obsessing over their health
[23:30:32] <n1> the goal is surely for your health band to start going "we have analyzed your health data and suggest you ask your doctor about x treatment"
[23:31:10] <n1> this message brought to you by pfizer
[23:31:38] <chromas> hipsters don't go to the doctor
[23:31:53] <n1> they will if apple starts telling them to
[23:32:03] <chromas> need moar natural organic herbal supplements
[23:32:13] <chromas> cruelty-free
[23:32:23] <n1> and im sure that can be worked into it
[23:32:24] <chromas> vegan herbs
[23:32:57] <n1> and that will obviously cost even more
[23:33:02] <n1> because it's natural and organic
[23:33:29] <n1> and will only have a shelf life of a week, so you'll always have to buy more before youve even got halfway through the first bottle/packet
