[02:28:46] <Ok> ^✓ 03Intel 4004 is announced, November 15, 1971 | EDN
[02:29:56] <SpallsHurgenson> and what a day that was; I can remember it well. It seems like just yesterday. Why, just EVERYONE was talking about it
[02:31:29] <Bytram> https://en.wikipedia.org
[02:31:30] <Ok> ^ 03Wiki: Intel 8008
[02:32:10] <SpallsHurgenson> bah, a year late! it was all quite passe by then. :)
[02:36:12] <Bytram> SpallsHurgenson: ummm, the 4004 came out Nov 15, 1971 -- the 8008 came out in April 1972, which is only 5 months later.
[02:37:25] <SpallsHurgenson> yes, but it was so déclassé by then! Nobody with an ounce of fashion sense would be seen sporting one of THOSE chips. :)
[02:37:41] <Bytram> I've worked on projects where it took more than 5 months to come up with the proposal, high level design, and functional design specs... never mind ANY code!
[02:38:03] <Bytram> SpallsHurgenson: well, the chips may not have been all that much, but, WOW, those Fish! ;)
[02:39:31] <SpallsHurgenson> helpful hint: never eat deep-fried CPUs. Not even if they are on the cheap.
[02:40:30] * Bytram will try and keep that in mind before putting chips in his mouth
[02:40:41] * Bytram does like chocolate chips, though
[02:40:47] <SpallsHurgenson> an undercooked CPU will just wreak havoc on your digestive tract :)
[02:42:27] <Bytram> so, one should overclock before consuming?
[02:43:12] <SpallsHurgenson> what do I look like, a chef? :)
[02:43:25] * SpallsHurgenson hides his billowy white hat
[02:43:45] * Bytram notes the large, white apron
[02:48:14] * SpallsHurgenson denies everything!
[02:49:19] <cmn32480|away> ~g'night everybody!
[02:49:47] <SpallsHurgenson> what if I don't want a good night?
[02:49:51] * cmn32480|away looks at SpallsHurgenson and decides he is a witch...
[02:49:57] <cmn32480|away> BURN HIS CPUS's!
[02:50:03] <SpallsHurgenson> frankly, I think it rather rude to just force a pleasant evening on people like that...
[02:50:24] <cmn32480|away> fine
[02:50:33] <cmn32480|away> have a fucked up evening SpallsHurgenson
[02:50:41] <cmn32480|away> everybody else, sweet dreams!
[02:50:47] <SpallsHurgenson> great, now I'm cursed to remain on IRC :)
[02:50:56] * TheMightyBuzzard puts SpallsHurgenson on a scale with a duck
[02:51:21] <SpallsHurgenson> better be one mother-effin' FAT duck :)
[02:51:34] <Bytram> SpallsHurgenson: well, may you have as much of a pleasant evening as you deign wish to accept!
[02:51:47] <cmn32480|away> ^^ what Bytram said!
[02:51:57] <cmn32480|away> night I'm outta here.
[02:51:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> newp, normal duck. yer fucked.
[02:52:02] * SpallsHurgenson considers some way to bitch and moan about that
[02:52:15] <Bytram> ~g'night SpallsHurgenson
[02:52:20] <cmn32480|away> he's gonna fuck a duck?
[02:52:33] <SpallsHurgenson> again?
[02:52:41] <cmn32480|away> apparently
[02:52:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> only if he hurries. we gotta burn him as a witch.
[02:52:43] <Bytram> that does it... I'm gonna need eye bleach! better leave before it gets worse!
[02:53:01] <SpallsHurgenson> Flame On!
[02:53:07] <cmn32480|away> you gonna use on of Ethanol-Fueled's extenders this time to see if you can actually make it come out the duck's bill?
[02:53:17] <Bytram> I have an early morning tomorrow, don't know if I'll get on before heading in to work.
[02:53:28] <Bytram> best to you all 'til then!
[02:53:32] <cmn32480|away> sweet dreams of ducks Bytram!
[02:53:37] <cmn32480|away> I'm out too

[13:35:41] <cmn32480> think I can get away with that instead of doing my day job too?
[13:40:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> eh, probably not
[13:41:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> if your day job is as a sysadmin or coder type though you might be able to get away with nethack. it looks sufficiently technical played in a terminal.

[22:01:06] <takyon> On Tuesday, Charlie Sheen will sit down with Matt Lauer on NBC's Today to discuss a "revealing personal announcement." Unnamed sources tell TMZ this announcement will be that the actor is HIV positive.
[22:01:43] <takyon> The tabloid report claims that the 50-year-old actor is already on HIV medication and that his "outlook is positive," according to a source.
