[01:53:41] <cmn32480> I was looking on Youtube for 409

[01:55:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> charon_, tryin real hard to hold onto my patience for the next one too but after two years or so it's wearing thin.
[01:55:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> #smake cmn32480
[01:55:39] * MrPlow smakes cmn32480 upside the head with foo"); drop table smakes;
[01:56:10] <cmn32480> I retract my previous statement
[01:56:19] <cmn32480> I thought Fuel came off Garage inc.
[01:56:24] <charon_> i only started the series a while ago. got through the first 4. they're fun, but i'm starting to wonder how often Harry can get his ass handed to him
[01:56:25] <cmn32480> not reload
[01:56:50] <TheMightyBuzzard> charon_, every last book. it's tradition. like burning down buildings.
[01:58:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> i envy you your first read of some of the books you got ahead of you too. dead beat especially.
[01:59:47] * cmn32480 makes a note to go buy the album from the concert I was jsut at
[02:00:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> and the 5th book as well. s'where jim introduces the Denarians.
[02:01:10] <cmn32480> is Harry Dresden the series or the amin character?
[02:01:21] <charon_> i got the first 4 for the library, whipped through them all in a week. i figure i'll try to savor them
[02:01:33] <charon_> cmn: both
[02:01:54] <cmn32480> 10-4
[02:02:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'd lend ya the rest but it'd prolly cost a mess of shipping
[02:02:07] <charon_> i guess the series it technically The Dresden Files
[02:02:49] <cmn32480> 14 books total?
[02:02:55] <charon_> my local library is interconnected with all the other ones from nearby metro areas. i can order a book shipped to mine to pick up, usually only takes a couple days to fill the request
[02:03:08] <cmn32480> found them in epub
[02:03:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> 15 so far not counting short stories
[02:03:17] <charon_> pirate

[02:05:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> legendaries still whoop my ass though
[02:05:26] <charon_> so you are an assassin. with your own ship?
[02:05:29] <cmn32480> damn kids monopolize the xbox
[02:05:32] <charon_> keeping a low profile?
[02:06:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> technically, no. you're not a proper Assassin in 4. just a pirate who happened on a dead Assassin and ended up doing his job.
[02:06:48] <charon_> ah
[02:07:14] * cmn32480 considers the audio books...
[02:07:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> plenty of assassin/templar drama though
[02:07:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, dresden files ebooks?
[02:07:40] <cmn32480> yep

[02:08:17] * cmn32480 quite enjoys audio books
[02:08:21] <cmn32480> especially on my commute
[02:08:25] <cmn32480> and on airplanes
[02:08:31] <cmn32480> and driving to far off places for work
[02:08:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> cept, which was it, ghost story or something he was wicked busy with something else and the guy who played lex's father on smallville did that one book.
[02:08:53] <TheMightyBuzzard> he's gonna go back and redo it though
[02:10:11] <cmn32480> might not be your style, but you might like the OUtlander books by Diana Gabaldon
[02:11:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, newp but didn't they make a tv show outa that or some movies?
[02:11:33] <cmn32480> Starz is doing a series

[02:12:34] * cmn32480 also enjoys the Tom Clancy / W.E.B. Griffen type stuff as easy no thought reads
[02:13:04] <cmn32480> the books are quite good
[02:13:11] <cmn32480> better than the TV series
[02:13:13] <charon_> i liked the first few black company books, but they got successively weirder and less readble. i guess i just like croaker too much
[02:13:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> man not me. i'm wicked partial to epics like butcher writes. there's stuff happens in the second book that's still affecting shat up in the 15th.
[02:14:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> he's in most of em
[02:14:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> runs the company for a while even

[02:17:27] <charon_> !nograb
[02:17:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> you're really gonna dig butcher i think. just remember as you read that he's a self described lazy writer and hardly ever puts anything in a book that doesn't need to be either for that book or for a future one.
[02:18:11] <cmn32480> understood
[02:18:19] <charon_> alright, worky-time over. time to go home. cheers gentlemen

[07:56:06] <poutine> away from a bad day
[07:56:07] <poutine> I meant
[07:56:14] <poutine> still sounds like crap but I'm going with it
[07:56:15] <chromas> nah 'cause they're not using vim
[07:57:09] <Xyem> But if I am banned from terminal access, how will I use my beloved nano?!
[07:57:18] <chromas> The best thing is after installing wine on a fresh system and the computer decides the default editor should be notepad in wine
[07:57:39] <Xyem> And the default image viewer is internet explorer..
[07:57:42] <chromas> Xyem: run emacs and access nano from there
[07:58:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> Xyem, cygwin. well known fact that nano users are probably on windows anyway.
[07:58:44] <poutine> most people aren't old enough to know this, but nano originated from pico, and pico was a text mode email viewer/writer, it was not originally designed to be a text editor
[07:59:05] <chromas> that sounds like just a stereotype but stereotypes are usually based in reality, so
[07:59:08] <poutine> even edit for msdos 6 was better
[07:59:15] <FatPhil> how are you distinguishing between "writer" and "editor"?
[07:59:22] * TheMightyBuzzard vaguely remembers but was already navigating with hjkl at that point
[07:59:31] <poutine> FatPhil, it was made to write text emails to people and view them
[07:59:36] <chromas> mswrite vs wordpad
[07:59:47] <FatPhil> but that's editing text
[07:59:48] <poutine> it was part of the pine package
[07:59:52] <FatPhil> so it was an editor
[08:00:17] <FatPhil> the clues are in the words and their meanings
[08:00:28] * chromas remembers using ms office 2000; outlook could do an embedded ms word for the editor
[08:00:31] <Xyem> I don't do enough coding in the terminal to justify learning a terminal code editor.
[08:00:54] <poutine> How do you code Xyem?
[08:00:55] <chromas> sacrilege!
[08:00:57] <boru> Huh?
[08:01:04] <Xyem> poutine: Poorly? :)
[08:01:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> Xyem, s'fine. NCommander is a nano freak as well. paulej72 and i are the sane ones.
[08:01:19] <poutine> Xyem, what tools do you use?
[08:01:42] * chromas uses View Source in Firefox then deletes the content and then Save As
[08:01:48] <Xyem> Geany (which I just tried to tab-complete, for some reason).
[08:02:22] <Xyem> I used to use Leo but I could never get it to play nice with git, and then they "broke" shadow nodes.
[08:03:07] <poutine> do you use your mouse?
[08:03:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> now now, even real coders are allowed to use a mouse. it's quicker to highlight with it than via keyboard.
[08:03:57] * boru balks
[08:04:02] <poutine> what?
[08:04:09] <TheMightyBuzzard> s'true.
[08:04:10] <chromas> Set up mouse gestures to fire macros
[08:04:14] <Xyem> Yeah, I use the mouse.
[08:04:36] <poutine> What would you select that can't just as easily be done or better with a keyboard?
[08:04:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> if you need to copy a range of text out of a file into another file or into another place in the file, mouse is faster even if your hands have to leave the keyboard.
[08:05:19] <FatPhil> not for me
[08:05:21] <boru> Man, I find it's the complete opposite for me, personally.
[08:05:25] <poutine> that is totally not true
[08:05:27] * chromas can sense poutine boiling with rage and gravy
[08:05:39] * TheMightyBuzzard chuckles
[08:05:49] <boru> That said, I do use a mouse for other stuff; CAD, spicing etc.
[08:06:10] <boru> But for editing text, I feel like it slows me down by orders of magnitude.
[08:06:13] <poutine> The only case where that would be true is if you were comparing selecting until the end of a file, and mashing the down arrow 1 gazillion times while in visual mode in vim
[08:06:27] <chromas> How do you program gooey interface in visual basic without a mouse?
[08:06:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, trackball
[08:07:16] <poutine> I feel like we should have a copy/paste speed competition
[08:07:30] <chromas> dragon drop cuttin' paste
[08:07:50] <FatPhil> is that a WWE-approved move?
[08:08:00] <poutine> I surf the web in terminal as well with lynx
[08:08:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> not while i'm off stimulants. my rate would be comparable to that of a turtle in the winter.
[08:08:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> !? you read the alt-text on porn sites?
[08:08:40] <poutine> People don't read terminals, so I look like I'm working at work, but instead it's just text content
[08:08:55] <FatPhil> my eyesight's poor, so moving a mouse pointer to the exact start and and points is slow, if I need single-character accuracy.
[08:09:00] <poutine> I read reddit all day in a tiny tmux window
[08:09:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh
[08:09:10] * boru chuckles.
[08:09:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> i just played nethack when that was a worry
[08:09:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> terminal AND arcane looking
[08:09:41] <FatPhil> What, not Angband?!?
[08:09:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> needs to be terminal
[08:09:58] <poutine> with open office layouts it just always seems like a worry, it's not like I'd get fired if I just did it in a browser, it is text-only content I'm interested in, and I look productive as well
[08:10:00] <boru> Pft, Core Wars, man. Looks like you're hacking the gibson.
[08:10:06] <chromas> FatPhil: you can double-click one word then shift-click another and it'll select to the word boundary
[08:10:06] <Xyem> I'm not making any claims that my workflow is the best, just not had need to find another one and my tryouts weren't convincing.
[08:10:09] <FatPhil> your choice of roguelikes is as poor as your choice of editors!
[08:10:14] <Xyem> Always up to improve it though.
[08:10:16] <boru> Here we go.

[08:10:29] <FatPhil> chromas++
[08:10:29] <Bender> karma - chromas: 188
[08:10:39] <FatPhil> Wow - many thanks, I never knew that!
[08:11:30] <chromas> performance may vary though. for instance, it doesn't appear to work in pidgin
[08:11:34] <Xyem> Navigating code with a keyboard feels the same as playing an FPS with a joystick to me :)
[08:11:39] <poutine> You frickin morons who use a mouse to copy and paste will never understand the true power of multiple and separate paste buffers
[08:12:01] <chromas> why don't we have both.gif
[08:12:09] <poutine> Also why are you copying and pasting so much?
[08:12:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> poutine, this is true
[08:12:25] <Xyem> Silly chromas, advocating choice.
[08:12:26] <chromas> gotta get those indian coding wages
[08:12:27] <poutine> keep it DRY
[08:12:48] <boru> Don't most programmers these days get their code from toiletoverflow? Seems like it.
[08:12:52] <chromas> sometimes you gotta spit on it
[08:14:03] <chromas> if you're not copy/pasting so much then why do you need so many copy buffers?
[08:14:42] <poutine> I asked for your reasons, I do it a lot while refactoring
[08:15:07] <chromas> well see if you're using a mouse you could just drag the code around :D
[08:15:22] <FatPhil> copy != move
[08:15:27] <poutine> you have to take your hand off the keyboard to use the mouse
[08:15:59] <chromas> I have to take my hand off the keyboard to use porn, too; hasn't been a problem except sometimes
[08:15:59] <FatPhil> chromas: I'm glad to see right-click works as an alternative to shift-click, as I'm used to right-clicking.
[08:16:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> poutine, nothing wrong with that. taking your hands off the keyboard does not actually slow you down if you're coding.
[08:16:16] <poutine> moving is an operation that involves copying, and deleting, so yeah, moving is copying, it is not only copying
[08:16:30] <poutine> TheMightyBuzzard, what do you type code with?
[08:16:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> if you're coding as fast as you can type, you're producing shit.
[08:16:45] <chromas> in kate I can ctrl-drag to copy
[08:17:06] <FatPhil> if you write more than 10 lines a day, you're a bodger writing poor quality code!
[08:17:24] <chromas> The best programmers delete more than they write
[08:17:31] * TheMightyBuzzard nods to chromas
[08:18:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> at least when working on a shared codebase
[08:18:47] <poutine> pfft, This is what you lazy millennials tell yourselves, us señor developers can write thousands of bug-free lines of code a day, and write good and flexible architecture, not requiring mass deletes of code every time something gets changed
[08:18:49] <FatPhil> I did once have a -ve KLOC brought up at a yearly review.
[08:18:59] <chromas> He puts code in; you take code out. Teamwork!
[08:19:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> millennials? i fart dust.
[08:19:01] * jasassin farts for about thirty seconds ending in a liquid shart
[08:19:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> and i have NEVER seen a developer code anywhere close to as fast as they could type and produce anything worth compiling.
[08:20:13] <poutine> Ok are you in some kind of position where you see decent developers? I'm sure the manager at McDonalds could say the same exact thing as you
[08:20:33] <FatPhil> TheMightyBuzzard: you've not met my boss - Timo Sirainen, author of irssi and dovecot.
[08:20:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> been in several, yep.
[08:20:39] <chromas> That's what he meant by millennials. "back in my day we had to toggle code in with morse code paddles!"
[08:21:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> i take that back. i've seen people code with two fingers who didn't ever have to pause and think about the best way to do something.
[08:21:42] <poutine> TheMightyBuzzard, your timezone is in flyover country if you're american, I'm just not sure you're near anywhere that attracts talent
[08:21:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> pffft, i AM talent.
[08:22:07] <poutine> is that why you're somewhere in the midwest most likely?
[08:22:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> yep. there's a derth of good tech guys in the midwest. makes for a nicely fat wallet for me.
[08:23:24] <poutine> all the good people end up in california
[08:24:04] <FatPhil> I can believe that all the people with inflated egos end up on the west coast.
[08:24:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> no, idiots end up in california. people who want job security, low stress, and good pay for the cost of living in their region live elsewhere.
[08:24:13] <chromas> higher wages for insanely higher cost of living
[08:24:49] <poutine> there's only so much the higher COL eats into your salary
[08:25:12] <TheMightyBuzzard> what's this on the bottom of my back? oh, it's MY ASS
[08:25:23] <poutine> I pay $2500 for a place where you likely pay $1500 for instance, and pay roughly $1 more for gas by gallon, and food likely is more expensive
[08:25:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> erm, try $650
[08:25:45] <poutine> that does not cover the wage gap between the midwest and california
[08:25:56] <poutine> $650 sounds like a garbagey place
[08:26:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> three bedroom home in a nice neighborhood
[08:26:07] <chromas> sure, if you're in california
[08:26:17] <chromas> TheMightyBuzzard: that's racist!
[08:26:21] <poutine> I refuse to believe that TheMightyBuzzard
[08:26:32] <poutine> even in Ohio, $650 would not get you a 3 bedroom house
[08:26:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> poutine, it's what i'm in right at this moment
[08:26:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> pro-tip: don't live in a city.
[08:27:14] <poutine> TheMightyBuzzard, Have you ever heard of Amazon Prime Now?
[08:27:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> I'm not impatient enough to even use regular Prime.
[08:27:48] <poutine> I can get crap from Amazon within 1 hour, from start to finish
[08:28:01] <poutine> I can order pot through an app with my credit card and have it delivered within 15 minutes
[08:28:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> bully for you
[08:28:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> i can order something and spend the next two days fishing. i think i win that comparison.

[08:31:00] <poutine> humans were not meant to live in the midwest
[08:31:05] <poutine> especially those with marketable skills
[08:31:11] <boru> Where is that?
[08:31:18] <poutine> Santa Monica
[08:31:23] <poutine> right by the PCH
[08:31:31] <poutine> that's the California Incline to the right
[08:31:32] <boru> NFI where that is.
[08:31:34] <boru> Ah, right.
[08:31:49] * boru Irish, mostly ignorant of US micro-geography.
[08:31:50] <poutine> it's in all the GTA San Andreas games
[08:32:08] <poutine> it's actually in the first scene of GTA V I believe
[08:32:32] <boru> I presume those were after Vice City.
[08:32:42] <FatPhil> boru - that's the bit that everyone hopes will slide off into the pacific when the big one hits

[08:32:57] <poutine> Not quite the opening scene, but close
[08:33:11] <boru> FatPhil; ah, right.
[08:35:13] <boru> California seems like a mostly awful place from what I've heard/read. I doubt the whole state is that bad, but the urban areas sound like truly terrible places to live.
[08:35:21] <FatPhil> +!
[08:35:27] <FatPhil> s/!/1/
[08:35:27] <sedctl> <FatPhil> +1
[08:35:29] <exec> <FatPhil> +1
[08:35:31] <poutine> what about it sounds awful?
[08:35:40] <boru> The people, mostly, but also the cost of living.
[08:35:50] <FatPhil> hahah - he went there...
[08:35:50] <poutine> What's wrong with the people?
[08:36:10] <FatPhil> see the south park episode...
[08:36:14] <boru> The seem very sheltered, and have a very skewed perception of reality and relationship of priorities.
[08:36:24] <poutine> which one FatPhil? I'd be interested
[08:36:35] <boru> Again, that's a gross generalisation, naturally.
[08:36:41] <boru> I doubt everyone is like that.
[08:36:50] <chromas> the net generalization is just as bad
[08:36:52] <poutine> boru, I think that's pretty much the same wherever you go though
[08:37:03] <boru> And since I've never been there, I can't really have an informed opinion, I suppose.
[08:37:17] <poutine> they hate us cuz they anus
[08:37:19] <poutine> ain't us
[08:37:24] <FatPhil> s10e02 "Smug Alert!"
[08:37:26] <boru> Mostly to a lesser extent, though.
[08:37:30] <poutine> thanks FatPhil
[08:37:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> poutine, no it's quite a long way off. my favorite fishing lake is however 15m from me. i think our life goals differ somewhat.
[08:38:10] <poutine> Maybe you have the wrong goals
[08:38:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> unpossible
[08:38:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> for i have caught epic catfish while you have not
[08:38:40] <boru> Move to Ireland. That way you can have great fishing _and_ great surfing.
[08:38:53] <poutine> I have caught catfish before, they are dirty fish
[08:38:57] <poutine> with no value
[08:39:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> and great drinking... hmm... your ideas intrigue me, boru...
[08:39:14] <boru> I think the closest thing to catfish we have is pike, in fresh water.
[08:39:45] <boru> Aye, par for the course, boyo.
[08:39:55] <FatPhil> we've got herring with so high levels of mercury and dioxins we're not allowed to export them!
[08:40:02] <FatPhil> Thanks Obamski!
[08:40:15] <boru> Pft, mercury hasn't done anyone any harm.
[08:41:01] <FatPhil> thanks for your input, Mr. Hatter.

[08:58:48] <boru> The East coast fellas ought to be show up soon.
[08:58:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> quite a few, yeah. some europeans and whatever the hell chromas is. loonie i think.
[08:59:24] <FatPhil> I need some advice on the best way to not bore myself stupid and yet still "watch" the Indy-500 this weekend.
[08:59:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> drink
[08:59:39] <FatPhil> yes!
[08:59:49] <boru> I agree with TMB.
[08:59:50] <FatPhil> I promise, sire, that I shall so do.
[08:59:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> millions of nascar fans have already crowdsourced this problem.
[09:00:25] <FatPhil> Do channels broadcast summaries, so I only need to watch the interesting bits?
[09:00:42] <boru> Why do you need to watch it at all? Trying to impress a girl?
[09:00:50] <FatPhil> I guess <1hr of highlights will be doable?
[09:01:03] <FatPhil> Nah - my g/f's the yank and she's never seen it either!
[09:01:12] <FatPhil> mid-west gal too
[09:01:27] <boru> Sheesh, even I've seen a few of them.
[09:01:27] <FatPhil> Basically, I'm an F1 fan, so I want to see how Alonso does.
[09:02:57] <FatPhil> It sounds incredibly boring. I like corners that bend both ways. I like having to out-brake. etc.
[09:03:24] <FatPhil> how much needs to be watched to actually get the feel for the whole thing?
[09:03:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, she might be a nascar fan then and be able to sit through it even if the cars look weird.
[09:03:42] <boru> I don't know man, I find le mans, or bikes more interesting than F1.
[09:04:05] <FatPhil> TMB: she's no nascar fan either. She has all of her own teeth, and likes F1.
[09:04:17] <boru> I'll take hurling, gaelic football or boxing over the lot, however.
[09:04:18] <FatPhil> bikes++
[09:04:19] <Bender> karma - bikes: 1
[09:04:37] <FatPhil> gaelic fightball?
[09:04:42] * boru chuckles.
[09:04:46] <boru> They don't always fight!
[09:04:54] <FatPhil> no, there's a break at half time
[09:05:02] * boru laughs
[09:05:13] <FatPhil> coffee's working :)
[09:05:25] <boru> Aye, you smart arse.
[09:05:31] <boru> I should get a refill.
[09:05:54] <FatPhil> I criticise F1 a lot, but I have seen in full every race since 1999.
[09:06:14] <FatPhil> I avoid newspapers and download torrents days later when I'm on holiday, for example.
[09:06:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, she may be lying about her midwest origins then
[09:07:48] <FatPhil> midwest's a big place
[09:08:20] <chromas> You don't have to like nascar but it sounds better than "I sat around drinking all day"
[09:08:35] <boru> I think it was here that I learned just what sort of ground it covers. I always assumed it was the desert states i.e. Arizona, up to Utah/Colorado etc.
[09:09:11] <FatPhil> lots of things in teh east are considered midwest
[09:09:19] <boru> That's silly.
[09:09:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, zactly
[09:10:13] <FatPhil> chromas: I think cricket is the brittish equivalent.
[09:10:28] <FatPhil> It's simply an excuse to sit around on the village green and drink all day.
[09:10:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> basically everything from the start of the central timezone to the rocky mountains can fall under midwest
[09:16:07] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - SpaceX Technician says Concerns about Test Results Got Him Fired - http://sylnt.us - would-YOU-ride-on-that-rocket?

[09:19:40] <upstart> ^ 03Midwestern United States - Wikipedia
[09:19:59] <boru> That is peculiar.
[09:20:07] <boru> Where is the Mideast, then?
[09:20:28] <FatPhil> The Texas-ND line is clearly the "mid", and everything that's not on that line is east of it, therefore "mid is just to the west" defines the midwest.
[09:21:06] <FatPhil> g/f's on the Tx-ND line. Proper flyover country.
[09:21:21] <boru> Division 8 of Region 4 has almost all of the states I'd like to visit.
[09:21:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> there are a few i'd like to unvisit
[09:21:59] * boru chuckles.
[09:22:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> virginia and maryland for starters
[09:23:49] <FatPhil> Basically the name's historical. The I-states were the west back in the 1800s.
[09:23:50] <boru> Around where you are, I'd like to visit bluegrass country, and the Ozarks next door.
[09:24:17] <boru> Then straight up from Arizona to Montana. It's beautiful from the pictures I've seen.
[09:24:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> pretty country for sure
[09:24:59] <boru> Some of those log houses in Colorado look pretty nice, too.
[09:25:15] <boru> But I know next to nothing else about Colorado.
[09:25:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> despite the legality of pot over there, your more easterly picks are gonna be friendlier and more laid back than the ones out west.
[09:25:31] <boru> In what way?
[09:25:45] <FatPhil> Colorado seems one of the more civilised and beautiful states from the people I've met and the photos I've seen.
[09:25:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> every way pretty much.
[09:26:15] <FatPhil> I have a friend who's at the foot of Pike's Peak.
[09:26:21] <boru> I'd have figured rural Wyoming and Montana to be pretty laid back.
[09:26:57] <boru> Then again, I sure would like to go storm chasing further East.
[09:26:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> yup. not so much colorado though. too many people who believe in causes there.

[09:28:40] <boru> Perhaps when I retire, I'll moonlight in meteorology or photonics.
[09:29:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> meteorology as a word greatly disappoints me. there are no real meteors involved.
[09:31:12] <boru> There are!
[09:31:30] <boru> NLCs are causes by meteor residue in our upper atmosphere, for example.
[09:32:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> huh
[09:32:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> well that's something at least

[10:09:49] <FatPhil> g/f's mum was a meteorologist and, when the tornado warnings came, had to be forced into the shelter in the basement as the temptation to observe was too high.
[10:11:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, my dad's like that. he's not a meteorologist though, just going after a darwin award.
[10:15:16] * boru chuckles.
[10:15:28] <boru> People think I'm crazy for going out for a walk in thunderstorms.
[10:15:45] <jasassin> do you make sure to carry a huge umbrella?
[10:15:48] <boru> I caught a small tornado here in Cambridge the year before last, as well.
[10:15:54] <boru> Well, north of Cambridge.
[10:16:05] <boru> Funnel cloud, sans touchdown.
[10:16:32] <boru> I've seen two others in Ireland in the 90s. Again, not very large. Nothing like those seen in the US.
[10:16:48] <boru> But big enough to relocate cars into trees etc.
[10:17:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> fun for the whole family
[10:17:07] <boru> Indeed.
[10:17:18] <jasassin> i've never seen a tornado IRL but according to the sirens we have one every friday
[10:17:23] <boru> Anyway, lunch time. AFK.
[10:17:56] * TheMightyBuzzard debates the relative merits of playing vidya or going back to bed for a couple hours
[10:19:27] <FatPhil> I remember one of the heaviest rainy days in Cambridge a few decades back where the thunder storm right overhead, and seemingly going nowhere, meant it was impossible to sleep. g/f & I just walked to the middle of Parker's Piece, in t-shirt and shorts, less to get wet, and lay back and enjoyed the show.
[10:20:50] <jasassin> i prefer to watch the tornadoes within the confines of my sturdy trailer house
[10:21:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> i tend to stay inside. thunderstorms in the flyover states tend to drop a hell of a lot of rain even if they don't come with hurricane-speed winds or tornadoes.
[10:22:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> plus there's always the fun chance of hail
[10:23:05] <jasassin> gotta love the hail
[10:23:26] <jasassin> my cards look like they were assalted by an ADHD kid with a pall pean hammer
[10:23:39] <jasassin> s/cards/cars/g
[10:23:39] <sedctl> <jasassin> my cars look like they were assalted by an ADHD kid with a pall pean hammer
[10:23:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, it's fun getting beaned in the skull with a chunk of ice the size of a golf ball traveling at terminal velocity
[10:23:42] <exec> <jasassin> my cars look like they were assalted by an ADHD kid with a pall pean hammer
[10:25:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> eh, think i'll go nicotine again then grab some more sleep if i can manage
[10:28:51] <jasassin> i sleep about four hours every two days.. what i would do for an 8 hour sleep like what they say is normal
[10:28:59] <jasassin> i can't even imagine what that would be like
[10:29:58] <jasassin> i don't even drink coffee... just beer, water, and the occasional fruit juice
[10:32:40] <Xyem> Good luck TMB, sleep well.
[10:35:12] <jasassin> anyone here use ccache to compile kernels? does it really help?
[10:35:27] <jasassin> i haven't ran tests... but i dont notice a difference in time

[11:17:59] <Bytram> otherwise, I'm doing okay. You?
[11:18:32] <Xyem> Likewise. Nothing particularly bad, but want the work day to be over..
[11:20:33] <Bytram> me too, and it hasn't even *started* yet! But all play and no work means that jack is not paid or something like that
[11:21:01] <Xyem> Heh, indeed.
[11:21:52] <Xyem> Other than that, I think progress on the dev VM is going ahead once something else is finished, which makes me happy. I won't have to "compile" Slash anymore!

[11:32:00] <Xyem> Because of the subtitles thing?
[11:32:38] <Bytram> yep, never tried to use 'em myself, but never know what I'm doing without actually knowing it, yanno?
[11:32:43] <Bytram> better safe than sorry
[11:33:24] <Bytram> I bet someone could include subtitles that are just non-displaying characters and users would be none-the-wiser while the exploit is happening
[11:46:09] <Bytram> According to the VLC web site, they have closed a large part of the problem, and the next version will close a couple remaining minor problems.

[12:27:03] <FatPhil> dunno how sane the zip library used is, and whether it pretects against that.
[12:27:39] <FatPhil> no need to path traverse somewhere if you can go straight there.

[19:07:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> janrinok, good to see ya around again. i'd stay and visit but the roomie's got family coming in this weekend and the house looks like shit, the lawn needs mowed, and much in the way of laundry needs to happen.
[19:07:55] <janrinok> I must go too - so cheers to everybody and I'll see you next time I'm on
