[00:04:10] <paulej72> TLA, the domain text is part of the submitted text. Did you copy that from the link Bytram gave you to your submitted story?
[00:06:36] <TLA> hm... that suggests I might have done, I can't honestly remember. What I do remember is the story submission was a paste from Notepad, still got the draft saved.
[00:07:37] <TLA> chalk that one down to PEBKAC, I think
[00:22:45] <SpallsHurgenson> damn those chairs, they cause nothing but trouble!
[00:23:29] <SpallsHurgenson> (those keyboards aren't much better either; let's get rid of them too!)

[00:29:27] <BadCoderFinger> Quiet in here today... too quiet.
[00:29:43] <SpallsHurgenson> shhh! be weddy weddy qwuiet! we're hunting wabbits!
[00:29:56] <BadCoderFinger> Heh
[00:30:03] <BadCoderFinger> How are you, Spalls?
[00:30:04] <ciri> you talking to me?
[00:30:43] <SpallsHurgenson> I seem to habe deweloped some sowt ob speet impedimend
[00:32:03] <BadCoderFinger> Yeah, that will disturb the wabbits.
[00:34:02] <SpallsHurgenson> allow me to regale you with the exciting happenings of my day, so that you too might know the wonder and awesomeness of my life
[00:34:26] <SpallsHurgenson> the highlight of my day today was the purchase of a new kitty litter box. Oh truly, my life has peak :-/
[00:34:39] * BadCoderFinger senses a cat story approaching...
[00:34:53] <SpallsHurgenson> no, just a midlife crisis :)
[00:35:05] <BadCoderFinger> Self cleaning? That would be good news.
[00:35:07] <SpallsHurgenson> I remember when I used to DO things :)
[00:35:24] <BadCoderFinger> Bugger that. Doing things is much too close to work.
[00:35:54] <SpallsHurgenson> now the most memorable thing of my day is buying a shit-catcher for the cat :-/

[00:50:52] <cmn32480> Strange question: I am looking for a new person at my job, some network skills, some wireless skills, team player, and they have to be in or willing to relocate to Maryland.
[00:51:04] <cmn32480> Where the heck do I advertise for that?
[00:51:41] <cmn32480> Obviously Dice is out...
[00:51:55] <BadCoderFinger> indeed.com, or something like that?
[00:51:56] <SpallsHurgenson> awww, I was just gonna recommend them :)
[00:52:58] <cmn32480> I've been looking on Indeed and not been real impressed. A few good looking possibilities, but no bites from the emails that I have sent.
[01:00:17] <SpallsHurgenson> have you tried India? 'Cause that's where you're probably gonna end up hiring from anyway :)
[01:00:57] <cmn32480> Not my company. The relocation expenses would probably raise a red flag.
[01:07:32] <SpallsHurgenson> some wireless skills: can change the SSID. some network skills: knows which port a CAT5 cable plugs into. team player: only calls his manager an asshole once a week. :)
[01:07:52] <SpallsHurgenson> not sure you'll be able to find anyone willing to move to Maryland, though :)
[01:08:25] <cmn32480> The last one would be a step up from the guy who quit this morning when I asked him to do his best to be on time to work and not make a habit of being 30 minutes late.
[01:08:47] <cmn32480> "Fuck this. I'm outta here"
[01:08:57] <paulej72> you can fix the network remotely, they don’t have to move from India
[01:09:12] <cmn32480> Pulling cable remotely is tough
[01:09:34] <paulej72> that never stopped an Indian call center though
[01:09:39] <SpallsHurgenson> just need a long enough cable :)
[01:09:45] <cmn32480> true.
[01:09:54] <paulej72> or long enough arm
[01:11:01] <SpallsHurgenson> Dhalsim would be a shoe-in :)
[01:11:03] <cmn32480> I think I might contact the local community colleges... maybe a kid fresh out of school who is willing to learn might work better
[01:11:23] <cmn32480> I do need to go see Habib....
[01:12:31] <mrcoolbp> hi cmn32480
[01:12:45] <cmn32480> how are you mrcoolbp?
[01:12:53] <mrcoolbp> great, how fairest thee?
[01:13:29] <cmn32480> other then the guy who quit this morning... nothing that a Lemonade Vodka and Iced Tea won't cure!
[01:13:43] <mrcoolbp> yeah, fuck that guy
[01:14:03] <mrcoolbp> better off without him, though, I'm sure your day sucked subsequently
[01:14:05] <cmn32480> actually that is what he said to me... but I'd rather talk about the vodka and Iced tea
[01:14:12] <SpallsHurgenson> put a bottle of Mt Dew and a bag of chips on the doorstep, leave a note as to the nature of the problem, and wait. The geeks will come, the geeks will come :)
[01:14:37] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - "Cat Music" has been Patented - http://sylnt.us - meow-the-jewels
[01:15:19] <cmn32480> I do love Firefly Lemonade Vodka. ONly avaialble (last I checked) at the distillery
[01:16:17] <SpallsHurgenson> For when they take your love, and take your land and take you where you cannot stand... there's Firefly vodka. :)
[01:16:20] <cmn32480> and yes, mrcoolbp, my day sucked substantially. Including cancelling his plane tickets and hotels for the job he was supposed to be on tomorrow. And getting an angry tirade from the customer
[01:17:01] <cmn32480> on the upside, I shall sleep like the drunk tonight
[01:18:31] <mrcoolbp> aye
[01:18:34] <mrcoolbp> I know the feeling
[01:18:35] <BadCoderFinger> That works!
[01:18:59] <mrcoolbp> my employees keep leaving due to sick children (2 in last 2 days) and I've had to work extra to cover = (
[01:19:23] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: any more editing/practice ?
[01:21:49] <cmn32480> Have not had too much time to practice unfortunately. I am working on the HTML cheat sheet whcih I will gladly provide so it can be linked to in the Wiki or somewhere for those of us that are somewhat challenged
[01:22:52] <cmn32480> I was hoping to spend part of lunch today doing that, and well, Monday happened
[01:23:34] <SpallsHurgenson> "Sounds like somebody's gotta case of the Mondays!"
[01:24:48] <cmn32480> I was told that if Sandra can listen to her headphones while she is filing, I can listen to my radio at a reasonable volume while I'm collating. I'll just burn the building down...
[01:25:37] <SpallsHurgenson> oh, thank god somebody caught that reference...
[01:25:57] <cmn32480> What the hell am I gong to do with 40 subscriptions to Vibe????
[01:27:11] <cmn32480> The problem is that it only works in Milton's voice. Otherwise it just sounds dumb.
[01:28:41] <mrcoolbp> rofl
[01:29:27] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: I'm working on the helpful editor interface images, too late for you lot of n00bs, but I like the idea of basic html stuff for editors
[01:29:37] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: you should throw it on the wiki
[01:30:14] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: needa make a new page under: http://wiki.soylentnews.org
[01:30:14] <NetCraft> " 03Wiki: Editors
[01:30:26] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: I can start one for ya, sec
[01:30:27] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp: Once it is complete, I will. We might also want to link in the comments screen, so it is not just a list of tags, but at leat a link to what they actually do
[01:33:15] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: not a bad idea, remind me once you get it into a useful state
[01:34:32] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp: I will
[01:34:36] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: you'll need to create an account on our wiki then edit this page: http://wiki.soylentnews.org
[01:34:37] <NetCraft> ^ 03Wiki: EditorialHTML
[01:36:01] <cmn32480> so far, that is 3 logins this site....
[01:36:18] <cmn32480> Good thing I use a password safe.
[01:36:22] <mrcoolbp> yeah, I have like 28437 logins
[01:39:32] <cmn32480> ]I'll bet you do. Last I checked I had 200+ for work.
[01:39:57] <mrcoolbp> dang, I was exaggerating
[01:43:10] <NCommander> mrcoolbp, you might want to introduce them to slashtags as well
[01:44:24] <mrcoolbp> NCommander: not sure what you mean. This? <b|i|p|br|a|ol|ul|li|dl|dt|dd|em|strong|tt|blockquote|div|ecode|quote|strike|sarc|sarcasm|user>
[01:44:36] <NCommander> mrcoolbp, there are some slash specific ones

[01:47:48] <NetCraft> ^ 03SN (dev) comment by Anonymous Coward
[01:47:50] <paulej72> some of that stuff is so damn old and no one uses it much any more . dl dt dd are not used much
[01:48:02] * mrcoolbp had to google some of them to find out
[01:48:34] * NCommander blinks
[01:49:34] <mrcoolbp> it turned <sarc> into <sarcasm>. <sarcasm> seemed to do nothing but print: <sarcasm>
[01:49:55] <NCommander> paulej72, is dl/dt/dd on our list of allowed tags?
[01:50:32] * mrcoolbp was too embarrased to admit he didn't know what they did, but when NC admitted to not knowing all he decided to share his AC comment
[01:51:23] <mrcoolbp> cmn3240: from NCommander: https://github.com
[01:51:23] <NetCraft> ^* 03rehash/slashtags.pod at master · SoylentNews/rehash · GitHub
[01:51:36] <mrcoolbp> that should help with your doc writing, though not all of those are in use
[01:51:51] <paulej72> yep
[01:52:04] * mrcoolbp wants to figure out some of the stuff in the editor panel that he has deemed "not in use" and wonders how much paulej72 knows
[01:52:14] <mrcoolbp> or NCommander ^
[01:52:42] <paulej72> Editor pannel will be getting some update love soonish
[01:53:18] <paulej72> there is a bucnh of cruft there that will be going bye bye
[01:53:22] <cmn32480> it is a step in the right direction... it is all stuff that would get tested in comments and stories on dev to see what (if anything) they do
[01:53:23] <mrcoolbp> paulej72: fantastic, just after I'm almost done with my editor tutorial gfx!
[01:53:25] <mrcoolbp> ug
[01:53:35] <paulej72> :P
[01:54:16] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp: Sound like a case of the Mondays!
[01:57:26] <mrcoolbp> paulej72 this is what I got so far: http://imgur.com
[01:57:27] <NetCraft> ^ 03Imgur
[01:58:17] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: you made it into the graphic it appears
[01:59:01] <SpallsHurgenson> needs a spot for the users avatar image :)
[01:59:42] * mrcoolbp smacks spallshurgenson
[02:00:44] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp: where did I make the graphic? I'm looking adn I must be missing it.
[02:01:20] <mrcoolbp> above "Intro Copy" on the right
[02:02:02] <mrcoolbp> paulej73: any idea on "autonode" and "fixquotes" ?
[02:02:08] <mrcoolbp> er paulej72
[02:02:16] <paulej72> mrcoolbp: I am going to redo the topic and nexus section.
[02:02:32] <mrcoolbp> fantastic, I was not looking forward to infographicing that one
[02:03:00] <mrcoolbp> paulej72++
[02:03:00] <Bender> karma - paulej72: 121
[02:03:12] <mrcoolbp> also good news for every editor
[02:04:04] <paulej72> autonode may have something to do with nexuses, fixquotes might have something to do with how blockquotes are done in some brain dead manner in slash. I wil need to trool the code to find out.
[02:04:27] <mrcoolbp> no need, "not in use" or just rip them out FFS
[02:04:54] <mrcoolbp> paulej72: one more is the textbox below Related stories (it's not the editor notes I'm pretty sure)
[02:05:01] <paulej72> would like to see what it does so I can guage if it is needed.
[02:05:07] <mrcoolbp> aye
[02:05:27] <paulej72> not sure about unlableld box
[02:05:43] <mrcoolbp> unlabeled box is unlabeled
[02:07:03] * mrcoolbp is looking at his "tutorial" graphic and hating it
[02:07:15] <mrcoolbp> will hopefully be useful, if quite ugly
[02:07:56] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp: you are stuffing too much stuff in the graphic
[02:08:04] <mrcoolbp> prolly yeah
[02:08:23] <cmn32480> perhaps, a number with a corresponding note at the bottom would make it easier to read
[02:08:30] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: was thinking same
[02:08:47] <mrcoolbp> sigh
[02:08:58] * mrcoolbp will finish this one and throw up on the wiki for temp fix
[02:09:20] <mrcoolbp> only need a few more to make it somewhat "complete"
[02:12:11] <cmn32480> On the up side, these are good growing pains to have.
[02:24:34] <cmn32480> Goodnight gentlemen and (highly unlikely) ladies
[02:25:08] <cmn32480> mrcoolbp: I'll see if I can't come up with something on the tag mapping in the next couple days.
[02:25:19] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: no worries
[02:25:34] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: already incorporating your advice into this graphic (kinda) thanks
[02:25:46] <mrcoolbp> cmn32480: goodnight

[02:28:04] <paulej72> mrcoolbp: that AC gift sub yesterday was for $25 ($5 bonus)
[02:29:01] <mrcoolbp> I didn't even notice till you pointed that out
[02:32:11] <mrcoolbp> paulej72: that's a little better, ready for the wiki? http://imgur.com
[02:32:12] <NetCraft> ^ 03Imgur
[02:34:17] <paulej72> I was working on that sub all day getting paypal working properly again.

[02:37:05] <Bender> karma - paulej72: 122
[02:38:14] <n1> mrcoolbp, in your description can you change "Update" to "Update/Save"
[02:38:15] <paulej72> I have no idea if what I did made it break or the API changed enough recenly, but it broke with our latest update.
[02:38:28] <mrcoolbp> n1: yes, nice n1
[02:38:34] <n1> as it appears as 'save' the first time you open a submission, so the first time an editor sees it
[02:39:21] <mrcoolbp> right
[02:39:26] <n1> a note on the "matching with" would be good, saying "unless on irc, beware" or something
[02:40:05] <mrcoolbp> n1: will add now
[02:40:40] <n1> thanks
[02:41:20] <n1> handy that it's there at all!
[02:42:05] <mrcoolbp> n1: anything else?
[02:42:45] <n1> don't think so, looks good

[02:49:32] <Landon> hooooo boy *_* found a local breeder with available puppies, that might be happening soon
[02:49:52] <Landon> pretty damn excited, reached out but haven't heard back yet, hopefuly they're not working their way down a waiting list right now
[02:51:09] <paulej72> Landon: what breed
[02:52:52] <Landon> paulej72: newfoundland
[02:52:59] <Landon> we're looking for a big lazeball

[05:19:48] <NCommander> Subsentient, in all seriousness, part of me is tempted to migrate SN to epoch linux to avoid the nightmare of systemd

[05:21:20] <NCommander> Subsentient, Ubuntu 14.04
[05:21:37] <Subsentient> NCommander: Ahh, my servers run Fedora with Epoch shoehorned in
[05:23:26] <Subsentient> NCommander: The only "official" distros that use Epoch by default are Night Linux (which is at alpha one and is my distro) and SubLinux (which is my private desktop distro)
[05:25:13] <Subsentient> NCommander: I can get you the ISO for either but neither are suitable for servers at the moment
[05:25:29] <Subsentient> SubLinux is really meant to be a good dev desktop
[05:25:44] <Subsentient> NightLinux is meant to be a tiny rescue/utility system

[11:01:50] <crutchy> i had a problem copying from a samba share on a qnap server today
[11:01:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> ask me that ten years ago and i could have told you tons about it.
[11:03:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> i really have forgotten more than most people know about sysadmin stuff. probably more than i know for that matter cause i don't bother retaining things that are easier to look up.
[11:03:24] <crutchy> need to figure out how to make rsync copy as the guest samba user so it doesn't keep the linux uid
[11:04:01] <crutchy> cos the qnap provides guest access but seems to accept non-guest writes
[11:04:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> hrm... is it from a mounted samba share?
[11:04:10] <crutchy> yeah
[11:04:30] <crutchy> might be a fstab thing?
[11:04:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> yep
[11:04:50] <crutchy> cool. thanks dude i'll look into that too
[11:05:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> or you might could have rsync chown them if you prefer
[11:05:36] <crutchy> to the samba guest user?
[11:05:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> to whoever you like i suppose
[11:06:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> easier to just mount it properly in the first place though
[11:06:07] <crutchy> hmm yeah that might be another way out
[11:07:13] <crutchy> heh. yeah its me being a sysadmin and pretending i know something about being a sysadmin

[11:14:48] <crutchy> thankfully i'm not handy to warrant investing in a heap of power tools
[11:15:15] <crutchy> i have a cheap electric drill that handles most things i'm willing to have a go at
[11:15:33] <crutchy> anything beyond that and i just pick up the phone
[11:16:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> i got all kinds of fun stuff. table saw, radial arm saw, miter saw, bunch of circular hand saws n jig saws, lathe, planer, drill press...
[11:17:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> couple chests taller than i am full of auto/general use tools
[11:19:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> sometimes it sucks knowing how to make so many things cause you feel obliged to rather than buy them.
[11:19:51] <crutchy> i guess if you spend a lot of money on tools would seem a waste not to use them
[11:20:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> that and i dislike paying a tradesman to do what i know how to do myself
[11:22:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> i mean hell, i could build a new house by myself cept for like standing the walls and hanging trusses if i wanted to. electrical, plumbing, gas lines, heating and air, all the bits.
[11:22:17] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - $56,000 Speeding Ticket Issued Under Finland's System of Fines Based on Available Income - http://sylnt.us - cheaper-to-pay-someone-else-to-drive
[11:22:48] <crutchy> i'd like to pay someone to mow my lawns cos i hate doing it, but i think if i did that i would feel guilty of extreme laziness
[11:23:07] <crutchy> and i always feel good after mowing them myself
[11:23:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, i'm just really starting go grok that my time is worth money and i should factor that in to any DIY project to see if it comes out cheaper to pay someone else.
[11:23:43] <crutchy> one of those things where its hard to get motivated to start but once i get going its ok
[11:24:15] <crutchy> outsourcing is ok if its beneficial
[11:24:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, right there with ya. no sense of accomplishment cept for the tan you get if you do it shirtless.
[11:24:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> cause that shit's just gonna grow right back.
[11:26:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> auto work beyond basic shit like changing the oil or light bulbs or a simple to get to part i outsource even though i could technically build one from the ground up.
[11:26:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> busted knuckles have never been my favorite thing in the world.
[11:27:27] <crutchy> i honestly have nfi how my lawnmower is still going
[11:27:51] <crutchy> old clunker is built awesome
[11:27:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> just make sure you run it out of gas when you store it for the winter and they generally go for a long time.
[11:28:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> blade sharpening aside
[11:28:28] <crutchy> fuel doesn't last long here anyway. always evaporates before i use it next
[11:28:43] <crutchy> (the fuel in the mower)
[11:28:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, thas bad. causes the additives to stay in the fuel system and gunk stuff up.
[11:29:02] <crutchy> ah
[11:29:15] <crutchy> well yeah i definitely have nfi how my mower's still going then :p
[11:29:36] <CoolHand> i always add fuel additive to mine b4 storing it..
[11:29:38] <crutchy> i think i've sharpened the blades once
[11:29:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> CoolHand, yep that works as well.
[11:30:36] <crutchy> i've lost a couple of bolts in the yard that hold the muffler on
[11:30:44] <crutchy> it just kinda hangs there
[11:30:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> crutchy, take a file/grinder to them and it'll cut your work in half.
[11:31:03] <crutchy> i used a file
[11:31:20] <crutchy> don't have a grinder (though i could borrow one i guess)
[11:31:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> we got folks around here what do that as well as small engine repair but i do my own sharpening.
[11:31:41] <crutchy> should prolly file them again
[11:32:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> carburetor rebuilding though, i'm over that. happy to pay them to do it instead.
[11:33:09] <crutchy> i assembled a small engine from basic parts when i was at uni
[11:33:18] <crutchy> was interesting, but yeah not much fun
[11:33:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> roofing as well. you gotta do it in good weather so it's hot and miserable on top of a lot of work.
[11:34:03] <crutchy> most of the work i've done myself on the house has been the roof
[11:34:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, i went a semester just before i joined the army to learn auto repair. what i hadn't learned myself already anyway.
[11:34:18] <crutchy> they are a pain in the arse, but expensive if you want someone else to do it

[11:35:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> true but i've done enough roofs in my life. happy to pay a guy and his mexicans to do it nowadays.
[11:35:47] <crutchy> i hate it when birds find a tiny little hole to climb inside and then fuck in my roofspace
[11:35:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> never was a career roofer but i've done prolly 20 of my own or as odd jobs.
[11:36:08] <crutchy> then they make their fucking pest offspring and keep my pest offspring awake
[11:36:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod. yall got squirrels down there?
[11:36:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> cause squirrels in the roof suck pretty bad too. fuckin tree rats.
[11:36:46] <crutchy> not squirrels. possums are prolly similar though. thankfully i don't have enough trees nearby to attract them
[11:36:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, we got possums as well.
[11:37:05] <crutchy> koalas are a nuisance

[14:11:20] <janrinok> hi guys
[14:11:21] <ciri> meow janrinok
[14:11:32] <paulej72> good morning janrinok
[14:11:50] <janrinok> hi paulej72 - how did the bug squashing go?
[14:12:32] <paulej72> mostly squashed, but there are some lingering issues on reshah dev that are problems for eds
[14:12:49] <janrinok> OK, that answered my next question too
[14:13:03] <janrinok> I've found another minor bug - do you want to hear about it?
[14:13:07] <paulej72> sure
[14:13:37] <janrinok> when I log in to the site, I type my nick and password and I used to just tap 'Enter'
[14:14:14] <janrinok> That no longer refreshes the page, nor does pressing the 'login' button. I have to do a manual refresh to see the admin menu
[14:14:48] <janrinok> this is on the live site, I assume it is the same on deev
[14:15:07] <paulej72> try clearing you cache and deleteing you sn cookeis
[14:15:33] <janrinok> oh, it happens on boot up too, and my cache and cookies are automatically cleared
[14:15:33] <paulej72> I never log out so I normally do not see this issue
[14:16:30] <paulej72> OK it looks like I broke the login button
[14:16:42] <janrinok> the log in appears to have been completed, but there is no indication. I would normally see the Admin menu appear. Other users may not have noticed because their display doesn't change
[14:17:05] <janrinok> is there a bit of code that is common to login and preview for the eds?
[14:17:55] * janrinok acknowledges that it might be a bit more complicated than that - but it might be a useful bit of info
[14:18:51] <TLA> g'morning :)
[14:19:07] <janrinok> TLA: hi, sup?
[14:20:05] <TLA> toying with a journal idea
[14:20:12] <janrinok> sounds interesting
[14:21:37] <TLA> well, the short of it is, I have a panel with composite input (YAY!) and an XBox. I'm thinking of following through mashing them both together at the local hackspace or at home into a neoretro gaming cabinet.
[14:22:47] <janrinok> I can see the fun in that!
[14:24:28] <TLA> inspired by a guy who did the same thing with a P4 and a 28" CRT, built a full size MAME cabinet that looks and plays just freakin' beautifully. He's in the middle of putting together a bartop cabinet as well, so far he's got the superstructure and the monitor panel done, still no guts tho.
[14:24:56] <janrinok> how are you carpentry skills ;)
[14:24:56] <ciri> doing great here
[14:25:00] <TLA> I'm looking at bartop, if this monitor works then wiring will be minimal
[14:26:09] <TLA> pretty darn good, I want to avoid using the laser cutter because that costs per hour and I'm just a skint nerd, so that means I'm honing my skills with a sharp chisel
[14:26:41] <janrinok> best of luck - and I hope you will show us photos of the finished article!
[14:45:02] <paulej72> janrinok, login works on article page but home page is broken right now.
[14:45:48] <janrinok> OK thanks - do you want me to play on dev to find more?
[14:48:02] <janrinok> paulej72: still causes problems for me but I suspect that normal users will not notice it
[14:48:44] <paulej72> janrinok, did you try to log in on an article page?
[14:49:01] <janrinok> yep - works the second time
[14:50:51] <janrinok> yes, it's ok on article page. Just tried a different browser
[14:51:39] <paulej72> home page is not setting the redirect url properly
[14:58:25] <TLA> wow, that was close, almost tossed a functional VM400 mainboard, good job I hoard old processors :)
[14:59:27] <janrinok> too close - I have loads of old 'junk' computers. So old that even charities do not want them. ...but they still work!
[15:09:57] <paulej72> janrinok, got a temp fix on prod.
[15:11:41] <paulej72> I add a work around to one of the templates on prod. it redirects propelry now.
[15:11:50] <janrinok> thx paulej72
[15:12:51] * janrinok is a happy janrinok!
[15:13:04] <paulej72> not sure why it works on article.pl but not index.pl. same bit of code, but not pulling the ENV vars on index correctly
[15:13:39] <janrinok> ...that was my next question. I blame Bytram
[15:13:58] <paulej72> quebec
[15:14:07] <janrinok> lol
[15:14:09] <paulej72> ok lucnh time
[15:14:14] <janrinok> have a good one

[15:29:01] <TLA> I mean, it might only have an Athlon XP2400+ on it right now, but hey, it's still good for building a jukebox, HTPC, MAME cabinet, oh look it's even got a serial port, I can use it to close my curtains! :D
[15:29:47] <janrinok> lol - XP2400+? Luxury, I've still got a 486 doing good work here. :)
[15:29:48] <ciri> hahaha
[15:30:11] <TLA> nice! My print server is a Pentium II.
[15:30:44] <TLA> it's so quiet I forget it's on
[15:30:47] <janrinok> well my oldest is a Z80 4mhz, but it doesn't do anything useful...
[15:31:22] <janrinok> my 486 is quiet but for some reason is quite power-hungry too
[15:31:40] <janrinok> well, for the work it is doing, it is power hungry
[15:31:58] <TLA> oh, oldest is it? I got a BBC Model B that still works
[15:32:12] <janrinok> lol - I bow to a master
[15:32:12] <ciri> now that is funny
[15:32:56] <TLA> gets even better, only one owner. I (well, my mother) bought it new in 1982.
[15:33:36] <janrinok> the Z80 still uses cassette tapes for storage and the only IO is RS-232. I built it myself from a Nascom kit, but it also looks like it!
[15:33:36] <TLA> everything about it is original, and the keys all still work
[15:34:20] <janrinok> I still have some unused cassette tapes for the future, but they are hard to find nowadays.
[15:34:28] <TLA> oh, the hilarity, I wonder if I can get it to run through my netbook
[15:35:05] <janrinok> like you, I love a challenge
[15:35:14] <TLA> there's a thrift store a mile up the road from me, they have a pallet load of tapes
[15:35:37] <janrinok> really? I'm obviously looking in the wrong places...
[15:35:49] <TLA> if I can get an xbox to run through the netbook, I can get a thirty year old computer to do the same :)
[15:36:26] <janrinok> I've got some C10, C20 and C30 tapes, 'specially made' for computer backup use. I wonder how I fell for that?
[15:36:33] <TLA> where are you?
[15:36:34] <ciri> have you tried google? TLA
[15:36:38] <janrinok> NW France
[15:36:52] <TLA> hm... me see if htere's any chains by you
[15:36:58] <janrinok> Back to UK for a short break in August
[15:38:59] <TLA> I can certainly grab a couple packs for you if you want
[15:39:28] <janrinok> whereabouts are you?
[15:39:47] <TLA> they'll be BASF Chromodioxid Extra II 90 twin packs or TDK Ferric type I Normal 90 triples
[15:39:57] <TLA> Nottingham
[15:40:16] <janrinok> lol - I can probably get my entire collection of programmes on 1 C90!
[15:40:17] <ciri> i don't think it's that funny lol
[15:41:38] <TLA> 60s are very rare these days, I like those for recording - 30 minutes is a good natural break for the speaker
[15:42:02] <janrinok> If you let me know the shop, I could perhaps plan my route via Nottingham. I'm travelling from Plymouth to Doncaster area.
[15:42:25] <TLA> by rail?
[15:43:05] <TLA> it's a chain called Poundland
[15:43:30] <janrinok> I know poundland by reputation only, but I'm sure I can find one somewhere on my route.
[15:43:40] <janrinok> no, driving.
[15:43:41] <TLA> people get ribbed for it, but there's some great stuff in those places. Obsolete media formats, for one ;)
[15:44:18] <janrinok> I have nothing against poundland or similar shops. There are some great bargains to be had
[15:44:37] <TLA> I don't get political over it, the simple question is does it have what I want/need right at that very moment? If so, shut up and take my money!
[15:45:12] <janrinok> I used to get tapes from Maplin, but last time I asked they just looked at me with a blank expression....
[15:45:47] <janrinok> fair cop, I suppose. The young lad had no idea what I was talking about, I reckon
[15:46:02] <TLA> yeah, know that feeling, I rarely go to Maplin anymore. They've gone too mainstream-gadgety. They used to be about hacking hardware.
[15:46:54] <TLA> the same thing killed Tandy/Radio Shack IMO.
[15:47:08] <janrinok> I can get all my components online nowadays, and Maplin have stopped shipping outside the UK. So much for a united Europe.
[15:48:25] <TLA> Maplin source ALL their loose components from CPC. Their retail prices are something in the order of 15-25 times the price you'd pay at CPC.
[15:48:54] <janrinok> CPC?
[15:49:15] <TLA> yeah, probably hte biggest electronics distributor in the UK
[15:49:31] <janrinok> I don't know them, but I will google for them
[15:50:51] <TLA> I was shocked and surprised the first time I ordered from them, I ordered ten capacitors thinking Maplin prices, spent more on shipping than I did on components, what I got was ten BAGS of capacitors - a thousand count! I rang them up asking if there was a shipping error - the answer was "no"!
[15:51:57] <janrinok> I will _certainly_ look them up on Google.
[15:52:09] <TLA> I ran out of caps late last year :x
