[00:09:52] <Sulla> Old overholt rye was the official medicinal whisky of the us navy
[00:10:23] <Sulla> Drank by the likes of the Wyatt Earp brothers

[00:18:29] <chromas> We need a professional drinker for next prez
[00:20:14] <chromas> I created a bridge to connect nspawn container to enps301q88mflsdmfsdlfsd network device. Now the host can't ipv4 to the internet, but the container can
[00:20:44] * chromas suspects he doesn't know how to play bridge
[00:26:16] <chromas> I think it works now. Looks like I have to reconnect enps302lfk2jlfkjk2j3lk4j23 after the bridge goes up
[00:33:57] <Sulla> You see three numbers. -200, +4000 are on a old document, 3800 is on a new document, do you see a link?
[00:38:16] <chromas> I do not. Sounds like gibberish to me. numbera r hard
[00:39:13] <Bytram> only the real ones... the imaginary numbers are rather... ethereal!
[00:41:54] <mrpg> 4000 - 200 = 3800
[00:42:17] <chromas> ^ nonsense
[00:42:32] <chromas> Those numbers are totally unrelated
[00:42:37] <Bytram> 4000 + -200 = 3800
[00:42:51] <chromas> Aha! Now that makes sense
[00:45:56] <FatPhil> http://-200+4000.com
[00:45:59] <FatPhil> now I see a link
[00:50:09] * Bytram chuckles
[00:50:19] <Bytram> #g IBM 3800
[00:50:19] <MrPlow> https://en.wikipedia.org - "The IBM 3800 was a continuous forms laser printer designed and manufactured by IBM. It is significant as a product because it was: The first laser printer manufactured by IBM. The first commercially available continuous forms laser printer. The IBM 3800 was developed and manufactured in San Jose, California. Production ..."
[00:50:56] <Bytram> It was the very first printer I encountered that could print faster than I could read.
[00:54:59] <Sulla> We told the department budget managers that data transferred over is sumarized
[00:55:12] <Sulla> So one is freaking out about fake numbers
[00:55:47] -!- mrpg has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[00:56:29] <Bytram> so is he upset when his paycheck is for his net pay and not for his gross pay?
[00:57:33] <Sulla> Dunno, didnt bother reading the detail of it. Just told them to read the instructions on the spreadsheet and to contact me if they dont make sense
[00:59:16] <Bytram> nod nod
[00:59:43] <Sulla> Called up a bunch of real high level staff to complain that my reports "arent valid" and "systematically wrong data"
[00:59:52] <Sulla> Instead of reading the fuggin instructions
[01:00:29] <Bytram> digging his own grave, eh?
[01:00:33] <Sulla> Going from old to new acct system had to summarize charges by period for old stuff, so for detail you must view old reports
[01:00:39] <Sulla> Na they are super senior staff
[01:00:43] <Sulla> Untouchable
[01:01:01] <Sulla> Hopefully new system is so distastefull they resign and I can take their job
[01:01:06] <Bytram> lol
[01:01:38] <Bytram> feel free to use this little bon mot I heard years ago: "Sense no makes"
[01:02:11] <Sulla> Ive been that dick that says "works as designed" all day
[01:03:31] <Bytram> hold the line -- don't confuse their confidence with competence
[01:12:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, containers are for beer.
[01:12:34] <chromas> machinectl refil beer
[01:14:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, thas the real reason robots was created. cause it's too much work to teach your dog to fetch you another beer.

[01:15:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> ha! cool! twitter is updating quicker than Bender.
[01:16:10] <Bytram> is that your new code?
[01:16:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya. hacky little script here on my desktop.
[01:16:59] * Bytram got an email from Zapier that we'd run out.
[01:17:12] <Bytram> whatevah works, eh?
[01:17:19] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Steep Slopes on Mars Reveal Structure of Buried Ice - http://sylnt.us - cold-as-ice
[01:17:21] <TheMightyBuzzard> which means i can't reboot to winders and play vidya till i get a proper fix in.
[01:17:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> motivation++
[01:17:25] <Bender> karma - motivation: 3
[01:18:16] <chromas> It just means you need to set up a windows vm on soylent to run the script
[01:18:31] <chromas> recursiveness++
[01:18:31] <Bender> karma - recursiveness: 1
[01:19:54] * Bytram pictures something doing a tail of an IRC channel, and, on seeing a bender post for soylent, invokes curl to POST a submission to twitter
[01:23:23] <TheMightyBuzzard> that's essentially what bender did, yep. cept he used python to do it instead of anything not insane.

[03:41:08] <Sulla> >when your 3 year old steals your phone and sends porn to your wife
[03:41:15] <Sulla> Touch screens are cancer
[04:19:28] <chromas> What kind of porn?
[04:26:54] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - WordPress Supply Chain Attacks: An Emerging Threat - http://sylnt.us - pen-and-paper-are-better
[04:26:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> Not to worry. She won't be able to delete your porn until her finger heals up. By then you can have plenty of backup copies.
[04:28:03] <Sulla> Was a blowjob webm. Wife will put out twice a day but has to be blackout drunk to engage in such acts.
[04:28:19] <Sulla> Unfortunately for me pregnancy does not lend itself to such activities
[04:29:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> neither does marriage
[04:32:47] <Sulla> Kek
[04:33:33] <Sulla> In my case is my wife being a religious prude, but is the tradeoff for being a virgin I guess.
[04:33:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> s'why eve did the thing with the apple. was never a snake. she just wanted to get out of smoking pole.
[04:33:47] <Sulla> hah
[04:34:45] <TheMightyBuzzard> remind her jesus was friendly as hell with the hookers and you think you need to be more like jesus.

[04:36:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> tell her to quit oppressing your religion
[04:36:17] <Sulla> Trying to decide if I should convert to mithraism or traditional roman pantheon
[04:36:50] <Sulla> Green pantheon was cooler, but rome is more better
[04:37:09] <Sulla> Greek*
[04:37:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> plus with greek you get the butt sex
[04:37:43] <TheMightyBuzzard> not that romans were prudes about it but it ain't called greek for nothin

[09:56:42] <FatPhil> Well, that's 0/3 of the classic lineup left :-(
[09:57:04] <FatPhil> I've had a beer and a chat with Robbo, historically.
[10:01:03] <FatPhil> I once rushed into a gig, running past the ticket desk without paying, because Robbo was ripping up one of my favourite 'head songs, and a righteous headbang was in order.
[10:01:49] <FatPhil> Calmly walked back to the entry after that, apologised with a bit of explanation, and paid.
[10:02:11] <FatPhil> That was the gig where I got to chat to him afterwards, in fact.

[11:31:10] <TheMightyBuzzard> well fuck. we're currently having what weather men like to call "a wintery mix" and everyone else likes to call a fucking ice storm.
[11:31:40] -!- tramtrist has quit [Client Quit]
[11:33:01] <FatPhil> One of the mildest winters I remember here, I've not resorted to long johns once, and after discovering that I've lost my wooly hat and the right hand of both of my pairs of gloves, have not been bothered to buy replacements.
[11:33:55] <FatPhil> Not uncommon that the cold patch just tips to one side of the globe, making it colder than normal, and leaving the other side warmer than normal.
[11:34:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> same here really but then i haven't been out fishing in the weather in months
[11:35:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> problem with ice storms isn't the cold, it's that the ice collects on trees, trees break, and the limbs fall on power lines.
[11:42:21] <chromas> We had that a couple weeks ago. Still got a heap of branches to chop up

[16:19:03] ProbablySulla is now known as Sulla
[16:19:20] <Sulla> Boro - im using that one next
[16:28:12] <Sulla> As sad as I am that Paul the Younger is not as hardcore as his father he does do a good job filibustering civil rights issues
[16:32:13] <FatPhil> filibustering is contemptuous
[16:33:45] <FatPhil> it's a DoS attack against democratic proceedings.
[16:36:30] <chromas> Turn it into a DDoS. Bring in the blm chanters
[16:39:31] <FatPhil> but then unite the right will feel the need to get their groups along too, it'll turn into chaos.
[16:39:43] <FatPhil> in other words - business as usual
[16:43:56] <Sulla> We dont have a democratic process
[16:44:37] <Sulla> And is the republic worth saving if citizens can be detained indefinitely without the state providing charges?
[16:44:51] <Sulla> Thats where we would be had he not filibustered 2012 ndaa
[16:56:07] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Microsoft Adds Signal Protocol End-to-End Encryption to Skype - http://sylnt.us - in-band-signaling
[17:14:52] <Sulla> So I need to build a new computer so I can replay skyrim, I would like to play on max settings. Been so long since I built a computer I dont klnow where to start
[17:42:14] <Ingar> worst time ever to build a new PC
[17:42:22] <Ingar> new Ryzens are around the corner
[17:42:45] <mechanicjay> hasn't that been the case for like the last 30 years?
[17:43:01] <mechanicjay> you build a new machine, knowing that something newer/faster/whaterver is just around the corner?
[17:43:19] <Ingar> I built my last desktop when Skylake was 2 weeks old
[17:43:27] <Ingar> at that time ADM had nothing
[17:43:30] <Ingar> *AMD
[17:43:53] <mechanicjay> I built my last computer using previous generation parts as they were on firesale :)
[17:44:13] <Ingar> the last computer I build was a NUC for my mom's christmas
[17:44:26] <Ingar> (with 27" touchscreen, awesome box_
[17:45:15] <Ingar> Sulla: the starting point is your budget ;)
[17:45:44] <Ingar> Ryzen jsut got pricecuts though, imho a viable option for a gaming PC
[17:47:05] <Ingar> I have a 1700 in my home server and I quite like it (except for some stability issues but I think it is RAM related)
[17:47:30] <Ingar> pair it with a 1060 or 1070 and you're good to go
[17:50:19] <Ingar> invest in a decent PSU (I can recommend Seasonic))
[17:50:51] <Ingar> disclaimer: I'm not affiliated with any hardware company ;)
[18:06:40] <Sulla> Ah, how long untl ryzens?
[18:07:08] <Sulla> I am still bitter at amd for buying ati and grinding it into the dirt
[18:10:06] <Sulla> My rush is not great, will take me a month or so t set up gaemin room
[18:10:30] <Sulla> But got dem feels and want to replay tes games
[18:25:38] <Ingar> mmm nextgen Ryzen is April
[18:27:09] <Ingar> the desktop APUs are for february

[18:32:49] <Ingar> Ryzen+Vega on a chip

[18:33:47] <Ingar> yeah, a bit pricey though
[18:33:50] <Sulla> Back before chiclet keyboards I got a new thinkpad t series and havent done any computing since
[18:34:01] <Sulla> So 2012 was last time I did any buying
[18:34:22] <Ingar> it's bascily still the same
[18:34:28] <Ingar> intel vs amd
[18:34:33] <Ingar> asus vs gigabit vs MSI
[18:34:50] <Ingar> nvidia vs radeon
[18:35:01] <Sulla> Are physics cards a real thing now and also worth it?
[18:35:05] <Sulla> To sli or not to sli?
[18:35:06] <Ingar> I'd go for an nvidia card though
[18:35:31] <Sulla> Probably wont do much except for civ iv, oblivion, skyrim, and online.
[18:36:43] <Sulla> My core2 duo still works good for both oblivion and skyrim but figure time to upgrade.
[18:36:54] <Sulla> So I assume anything out there would work great
[18:36:58] <Ingar> I have an i7-6700 (skylake) with an 1080 and 16G RAM, all of the obove runs smooth on max settings
[18:37:09] <Sulla> Okay cool
[18:37:22] <Ingar> it's even overkill
[18:38:00] <Sulla> Thats good to hear. I figure If I go overboard I can probably play the next tes edition in '18 or '19
[18:38:08] <Ingar> civ VI, skyrim HD, online, openmorrowind with silly gfx packs
[18:38:33] <Ingar> Sulla: 1080p though, I'm not 4K gaming
[18:38:48] <Sulla> What is openmorrowind vs from disk morrowind
[18:39:05] <Ingar> openmorrowind is an open source implementation of the morrowind engine
[18:39:16] <Ingar> e.g. it can run MW on linux
[18:39:22] <Sulla> Will need to try that
[18:39:25] <Sulla> Ill be win 7ing
[18:39:29] <Sulla> Because I hate freedom
[18:39:47] <Ingar> don't worry, I have Steam+Win10 for gaming
[18:39:50] <Ingar> the full spyware pack
[18:40:09] <Ingar> it might be wise to go Win10 though
[18:40:13] <Ingar> especially with new hardware
[18:40:22] <Sulla> I feel like linux is the "building your own railroad ties" of model railroading
[18:40:40] <Sulla> Its probably a good idea but a different hobby
[18:41:08] <Ingar> been doing linux for +20 years now ;)
[18:41:19] <Sulla> >is only 27
[18:41:30] <Sulla> Never got into it, too lazy, regret that now
[18:41:35] <Ingar> you still can
[18:41:51] <Ingar> to play around you can even install the ubuntu thing in Windows 10
[18:42:00] <Sulla> I have slackware on my thinkpad
[18:42:04] <Ingar> :D
[18:42:05] <Sulla> I can do basic stuff
[18:42:17] <Ingar> that gets you a long way
[18:42:20] <Sulla> But more like a macuser now
[18:42:28] <Sulla> Want to just work
[18:43:06] <Ingar> I totally understand, I turned 40 last year so I 'm slowly arriving into "I'm getting too old for this kind of crap" ;)
[18:43:24] <Sulla> Haha
[18:43:42] <Sulla> Everytime I try to play civ I barely get into it when kids demand attention
[18:44:19] <Sulla> Is it a good idea when building pcs to use them static wristbands, or is it fake news?
[18:44:29] <Ingar> tbh
[18:44:37] <Ingar> I've never use a wristband
[18:45:13] <Ingar> just touch a metal object before tinkering with computers, or go barefeet
[18:45:25] <Ingar> (e.h. you build up a lot of static on slippers)
[18:45:57] <cmn32480> lick a wall plate
[18:46:06] <Ingar> got iron chairs which shock me regularly, never got shocked by a PC
[18:46:48] <Ingar> in any case
[18:46:59] <Ingar> there's a steak waiting with my name on it
[18:47:09] <Ingar> thanks for the chat, cu around
[18:47:15] <Sulla> Only time I got shocked by one was when I built a pentium ii into a scanner
[18:47:18] <Sulla> "Scantop"
[18:47:45] <Sulla> Was young and dumb, yelled to my buddy "hay man do we need grounding" and got back "grounding is for noobs"
[18:48:03] <Sulla> So took the cover off a psu to fit it into the scanner
[18:48:33] <Sulla> Psu arced through scanner glass and to the hard drive and a huge plume of smoke.
[18:53:10] <cmn32480> when did it become ok for peopel to be on the phone while taking a shit in a mul;ti-tenant bathroom?
[18:54:04] <Sulla> In general people seem to be okay now with communicating in the bathroom
[18:54:09] <Sulla> It distresses me constantly
[18:55:21] <cmn32480> i hate it.. and it makes we wanna courtesy flush just as fast as the toilet will let me
[19:03:28] <Teckla> cmn32480: Like... talking? Or texting?
[19:03:43] <cmn32480> like talking
[19:03:47] <Teckla> :O
[19:03:48] <Sulla> Savages
[19:03:54] <cmn32480> most asuredly
[19:03:58] <Teckla> That is just gross, multi-tenant or not, imo
[19:04:10] <Teckla> I mean, in the privacy of your own home, sure, whatever
[19:04:36] <Teckla> But in a bathroom where there are multiple people in there at the same time... sheesh
[19:04:37] <Sulla> My office has one urinal and one stall, have this one asshat that does a 30 minute call on the crapper every morning
[19:04:55] <cmn32480> 1 upright... 2 sitdown in ours
[19:05:28] <Sulla> I would be unable to function under that level of stress
[19:05:33] <Teckla> At the building where I work, sometimes I have to visit up to 4 floors, before I can find an open stall to "conduct business". Stalls are frequently used by people taking breaks and playing with their phones. >:|
[19:05:52] <Sulla> Savagry
[19:06:01] <Teckla> It's annoying when *you gotta go*
[19:06:10] <Sulla> For the thousand people in my building we have 3 stalls
[19:06:16] <cmn32480> ouch
[19:06:29] <cmn32480> says somethign for home bowl advantage
[19:08:45] <Sulla> Usually if I really gotta go and the 30 minute asshat is #occupyingcan
[19:08:59] <Sulla> I just say im sick and work from home remainder of day
[19:11:02] <Teckla> cmn32480: home bowl advantage lol
