[13:08:29] <AndyTheAbsurd> I'm updating firefox. So far it jumped from 23.0 to 43.0.1 to 47.0.2 - and it's updating again.
[13:10:02] * boru chuckles.
[13:10:10] <boru> Only ten more versions to go!
[13:10:20] <cmn32480> stop at 52 ESR
[13:10:42] <boru> I tried to garner some support for helping the PM port to FreeBSD, actually. I need to ping gecko@ to get some help, I reckon.
[13:10:55] <AndyTheAbsurd> cmn32480: It's not my primary browser, so I'm catching up to the latest.
[13:11:02] <cmn32480> ahhhh
[13:11:12] <cmn32480> if you use anythign that requires Java... don't
[13:11:20] <boru> Firefox just gets worse and worse.
[13:11:38] <cmn32480> agreed
[13:12:04] <cmn32480> buyt I have a VPON from a client that requires a Java client (shoot me) and 52 ESR is the only thing that supports it
[13:12:19] <boru> Have you considered cancelling their contract?
[13:13:14] <boru> Unrelated, but I've just bought one of those AMD threadrippers, the 1950X. I wonder how it'll OC.
[13:13:27] <boru> 16 cores, 32 threads.
[13:13:56] <boru> Next hw update will be my server. I'm thinking a dual socket ThunderX2 setup.
[13:13:57] <AndyTheAbsurd> We actually just a few weeks ago got rid of our one production system that required Java in a browser.
[13:14:18] <cmn32480> you luck bastard
[13:14:39] * boru chuckles.
[13:14:54] <cmn32480> boru - I'd love to, but they spend a LOT of money with us every year
[13:15:03] <boru> I sure hope the MPC get their shit together and dump their java craplet as well.

[13:24:15] <Bytram> Anyone know how I can tell what version of Direct2D I have on my system? (Win 7 pro x64)... just upgraded pale moon to 27.6.0 and saw this:
[13:24:18] <Bytram> "Dropped support for Direct2D 1.0 to avoid font rendering issues. Windows installations not capable of using Direct2D 1.1 will now fall back to software rendering. As a result, fonts may look different from this version onwards if you are on Windows Vista or Windows 7. Users on Windows 7 affected by this should install the Platform Update to re-enable Direct2D."

[13:26:42] <cmn32480> I stadn corrected
[13:26:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> anything's better deep fried.
[13:27:18] <Bytram> Huh? Oh, I was thinking of Humus

[13:27:32] <Bytram> nope
[13:27:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, you had it right enough. by accident maybe but still.
[13:28:01] <Bytram> mare see!
[13:29:59] <TheMightyBuzzard> blarg. i don't feel like coding for my supper this morning.
[13:30:19] <Bytram> how 'bout coding for your breakfast?
[13:30:47] * cmn32480 giggles
[13:31:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> and, yes, boru, i'm still on the embedded project. mostly because of delays beyond my control but partially out of laziness.
[13:31:05] <cmn32480> bytram - I tossedin what I could while I coudln't sleep last night.
[13:31:16] <Bytram> ya, I saw... WOW!
[13:31:20] <cmn32480> I think we are out to tomorrow morning
[13:31:29] <Bytram> nod nod
[13:31:41] <cmn32480> couldn't sleep... clowns wil.l eat me
[13:31:41] <Bytram> was starting to wonder about ya with that big project you'd been on
[13:31:53] <Bytram> Ha Ha!
[13:32:01] <cmn32480> people have been wondering about me for many years
[13:32:02] * Bytram cant remember the simpson's character
[13:32:09] <cmn32480> BArt Simnpson
[13:32:14] <Bytram> nope
[13:32:32] <boru> TMB; I didn't say anything!
[13:32:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's difficult to code and debug the network bits without a sim card and they ain't got one in for me to use yet.
[13:32:43] <Bytram> !grab boru
[13:32:43] <Bender> Added quote 848
[13:33:00] <boru> Pft, why are you grabbing me?
[13:33:03] <boru> No touching.
[13:33:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> but i also been putting off a morning or two's worth of work to finish off what i still can get done.

[13:33:27] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: sim *card*? can you just go down to the local phone place and get one or do you need more hardware bits to hook it up?
[13:34:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, i ain't paying regular phone company rates, or any rates for that matter, to dev for someone who ain't me.
[13:34:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> not when they can sign up with *forget the name* and get me a dev sim card and connectivity for free.
[13:34:46] <Bytram> understand the position... was just thinking if it's only, say $50 for a month, then sounds like a cheap investment
[13:34:56] <Bytram> oh, ok. nvm
[13:36:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> the plan it comes with ain't viable for a phone even remotely but it'll work peachy keen for the tiny amounts of data i'll be using.

[13:39:31] <Bytram> looks like I have "DirectX 11" according to dxdiag.exe
[13:40:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> hologram. that's the name. like $5 for a production sim and maybe $1/month for the plan. https://hologram.io

[13:42:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> AndyTheAbsurd, industrial stuff that ignores all external input cept that from one 24V digital input, and it only counts pulses on that.
[13:42:36] <Bytram> so... it all works out in the end, eh?
[13:49:13] <Bytram> hokay... looks like "DirectX 11" ==> "Direct2D 1.0" and "DirectX 11.1" ==> "Direct2D 1.1" unless... I install the: https://en.wikipedia.org
[13:59:37] <Bytram> Well, that's enough time spent going down that rabbit hole! Note to self: If there are issues with font appearance and/or performance on Pale Moon 27.6.0 then take a look at this platform update: https://www.microsoft.com

[14:01:45] <Bytram> otherwise, I 100% agree
[14:01:56] <cmn32480> there are specific updates that you can kill for Windows 7 to prevent it
[14:02:16] <Bytram> nod nod
[14:03:06] <Bytram> not to change the subject, but I noticed you are only 11 stories from reaching 2900! https://soylentnews.org
[14:05:30] <cmn32480> yeah...
[14:05:46] <cmn32480> but that number hasn't moved much in the last year
[14:05:52] <Bytram> looking back, I can remember when reaching 100 stories seemed a herculean task!
[14:06:06] <cmn32480> yeah
[14:06:17] <cmn32480> every milestone seems to tak emany times longer than the one before it
[14:06:37] <Bytram> we each have times when our spare time is dear... we help when we can.

[14:09:41] * TheMightyBuzzard chuckles
[14:09:46] <boru> I've just noticed. Silly me.
[14:09:49] * TheMightyBuzzard cracks the whip on cmn32480
[14:10:04] <boru> Also, how can I tell if I am still a subscriber or not?
[14:10:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> subscriber tab on your info page
[14:10:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> hrm...
[14:10:42] <boru> There isn't such a tab. Does that mean no?
[14:11:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> https://soylentnews.org maybe?
[14:11:53] <boru> Oh, still subscribed.
[14:11:56] <boru> Thanks.
[14:12:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> looks like s/\?.*// works as well
[14:12:26] <boru> Is that set to recurring automatically? That'd be useful, since I'd be forgettful about that sort of thing.
[14:12:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> you can set it that way through paypal if you like. i don't think we have stripe set up to do that though.
[14:13:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> or maybe i have that backwards
[14:13:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, gotta go through pp for recurring
[14:14:00] <boru> Feck paypal.
[14:14:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod. we can prolly do recurring on stripe as well but i don't think i ever looked into how.
[14:15:18] <boru> No interest in bitcoins?
[14:15:26] <TheMightyBuzzard> look at the stripe button
[14:15:35] <boru> Must I?
[14:15:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah. i can just tell ya stripe will take bitcoins as well.
[14:16:00] <boru> Splendid.
[14:16:05] <boru> NFI what stripe is.
[14:16:09] <boru> So, duly noted.
[14:16:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> converts them automagically into dollars and sends us the dollars.

[14:16:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> just a credit card processor
[14:16:25] <boru> That _is_ magic.
[14:18:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> heh, bitcoin's hit the point where it costs more money in electricity to verify one of our transactions than the transaction is for.
[14:20:54] <boru> Indeed.
[14:21:35] <Bytram> well, not quite... last I heard a transaction fee ran about $5 ($7?) but point taken. If you've got the bitcoin and don't have the cash, then looks like it is best to make a single largish redemption and split the cash around than to do multiple small redemptions
[14:22:07] <boru> I'd like to be able to barter electronic animals.

[14:22:48] <boru> Not sure if I herd you right, there.
[14:24:08] <Bytram> back when the tamagotchi first came out (1997?) I discovered a bug with mine and was able to advance the age rapidly... without all that feeding, playing, etc. stuff. But, once there, couldn't ignore it for more than a few hours or it would start to get "ill"

[14:24:25] <AndyTheAbsurd> Wool you drop it with the puns?
[14:24:30] * TheMightyBuzzard really just wanted to type bitch
[14:24:37] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: why do you want to bite chipmunks?
[14:27:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> bitchicken! 🐔
[14:28:07] <AndyTheAbsurd> I was about to suggest that
[14:28:15] <boru> You didn't manage to fleece me. You'll hoof to try again.

[14:32:43] <Bytram> besides getting the title of the story, one really nice thing that upstart does is resolve the redirections until it gets to the final, unobfuscated URL destination
[14:33:02] <TheMightyBuzzard> within limits i hope

[14:35:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> RFCs annoy me. they're the exact opposite of what their acronym means.
[14:35:39] <boru> Only when they're accepted.

[14:37:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> think i'll start reading them as "request for cookies" instead. as in "hey, i spent all the time writing this up. send me cookies."
[14:38:20] <AndyTheAbsurd> "request for cake" instead - browsers already cookies for non-food purposes.
[14:38:50] <boru> Request for meats.
[14:38:55] <boru> The steaks are high, afterall.
[14:39:07] <AndyTheAbsurd> that was bloody bad.
[14:39:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> request for carne?
[14:39:17] <Bytram> not so much bad, as quite rare
[14:39:29] <boru> That certainly made the cut.
[14:39:51] <Bytram> spare no quarter, eh?
[14:40:55] <boru> I'll meat you halfway and say yes.
[14:42:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> ugh, all these puns make me want to up-chuck
[14:42:55] <boru> Well, perhaps it's time to take stock.

[14:59:57] <AndyTheAbsurd> enabling focus-follows-mouse-without-raise on Windows is great, but Visual Studio 2012 ignores the "without raise" part of it somehow.
[15:02:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> bleh. i decidedly don't want focus follows mouse. i do appreciate the scrolling follows mouse behavior you get in linux though.
[15:04:03] <AndyTheAbsurd> I can't live without it any more. Focus follows mouse *with* raise sucks, though - there's no good delay that results in the window coming to the front when you actually *want* it to. It's always too early or too late.
[15:20:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> truth. i dig being able to move the mouse out of the way of what i'm looking at without losing focus though. 99% of the time it's hovering over an empty bit of desktop. 0.8% of the time it's over a different window to scroll something in it that i'm reading while still typing in another window.
[15:21:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> like right now i have some pdfs open on the right-hand monitor that i'm reading while watching tv fullscreen on the left-hand monitor
[15:22:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> well not RIGHT now but...
[15:38:34] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: I just stumbled upon something with pagination and archived stories on the site and thought I'd found a bug (who, me?) because the story had over 300 comments, but no page selection tool... then I found out that all 308 comments were sent down in a single page!

[15:39:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah. that can happen on the new system if they're all below one top level comment

[15:40:11] <Bytram> got all 448 comments in one go
[15:40:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, those are pre-update stories. that's irrelevant.
[15:41:06] <Bytram> hmmm
[15:41:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> pre-update stories use the old rendering logic.
[15:41:37] * Bytram tries to remember when the update hit... some time around the beginning of the year, IIRC
[15:41:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> march or april i think
[15:42:22] * TheMightyBuzzard goes back to watching tv and reading.
[15:42:27] <Bytram> okay, I *do* see pagination on this story: https://soylentnews.org
