[00:07:37] <FatPhil> happy krampusmas everybody
[00:09:00] <FatPhil> not a bad one so far, I've over-eaten to the extreme already. Fortunatley, I moderated that with over-drinking, for balance.
[00:12:24] <AzumaHazuki> that is quotable
[00:13:01] <FatPhil> ~gday AzumaHazuki
[00:13:31] <chromas> !grab AzumaHazuki
[00:13:31] <Bender> Added quote 935
[01:36:34] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Why I Dislike What “Quantum Supremacy” is Doing to Computing Research - https://sylnt.us - necessary-evil
[01:50:44] <RandomFactor> Sigh....youngest child is crying at a few drops of chili pepper oil in a giant bowl of stir fry. There's no way we are related. Maybe she got switched in the hospital.
[01:51:38] * AzumaHazuki would drink Tuong ot Sriracha from the bottle if allowed. Why does it have a little green drinky-spout on it if not for that?
[01:52:07] * RandomFactor nods sagely at Azuma
[01:52:43] <AzumaHazuki> that's waaaay too much salt to be healthy though
[01:53:13] <RandomFactor> The bamboe is probably half salt. I refuse to check.
[01:54:57] <RandomFactor> Gave mother in law a tiny little bowl. I really know better (low salt diet). But at least she appreciates my cooking.
[01:55:49] <AzumaHazuki> ahh, jeez, i've got this craving for Chinese cooking now. can't hardly find the ingredients here
[01:56:04] <AzumaHazuki> there's ONE store I can get bok choy and stuff
[01:56:38] <AzumaHazuki> and I didn't see doubanjiang or Shaoxing wine
[01:57:06] <RandomFactor> technically this was Indonesian, at least in vague theory
[01:57:41] <RandomFactor> i would probably be safer calling my cooking 'fusion'
[01:58:42] <RandomFactor> although... I made okonomiyaki the other weekend!
[01:59:08] <RandomFactor> there were a few substitutions there also of course...
[02:00:03] <AzumaHazuki> my fucking stove has been broken for 2 fucking weeks and the landlord is dragging his ass on fixing it
[02:00:35] <RandomFactor> start hauling firewood past his door on the way to your apartment :-)
[02:01:06] <AzumaHazuki> LOL, like he lives in this shithole neighborhood
[02:02:07] <RandomFactor> Hrmmmm, life without a stove would be...annoying
[02:03:24] <AzumaHazuki> especially since cooking is one of the only things i like doing and can (sometimes) afford
[02:03:52] <AzumaHazuki> my thing is optimization: how much healthy, delicious food can i make with $NOTALOTOFMONEY kind of thing
[02:04:39] <RandomFactor> What kind of stove and what is wrong with it?
[02:06:03] <AzumaHazuki> small gas stove. what's wrong with it is it leaks gas, one burner doesn't light, three of them randomly lose pilot, oven doesn't work
[02:06:09] <AzumaHazuki> basically it's an old piece of shit
[02:07:49] <RandomFactor> I'm guessing he's replacing some bits because it's cheaper than replacing.
[02:07:51] <RandomFactor> ?
[02:08:11] <RandomFactor> Still shouldn't take long for them to come in.
[02:08:40] <AzumaHazuki> apparently the last guy turned the gas back on, relit the pilots, and said it was fixed. lolno
[02:08:48] <AzumaHazuki> came home that evening to another damn leak
[02:08:55] <RandomFactor> Lovely.
[02:09:18] <RandomFactor> You got a hot plate or something?
[02:09:57] <AzumaHazuki> slow cooker, but i don't get to use it too much.
[02:11:50] <RandomFactor> If you wanted to be pissy you might be abe to make a case for reduced rent if he's supposed to provide the stove. I've never been much for going that route though.
[02:12:43] <AzumaHazuki> i don't dare. 2 months homeless was more than enough and there are zero protections in Pennsylvania

[03:43:21] * TheMightyBuzzard yawns
[03:43:21] * MrPlow flips a Skittle into TheMightyBuzzard's gaping mouth
[03:43:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> merry christmas, you old building and loan!
[03:53:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> AzumaHazuki, you could probably fix that fairly easily yourself with an hour of research and under $50 in parts and tools but it's a lot more reassuring to have someone confident playing with the explosive gas thingies.
[03:54:16] <AzumaHazuki> yes, that's my reasoning as well
[03:54:27] <AzumaHazuki> i'll be dead soon enough; no need to hurry the process along
[03:59:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> well there's a valve before it hooks into the stove and you double check for leaks with soapy water
[03:59:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> s/valve/shutoff valve/
[04:00:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> so you probably wouldn't blow up. might get frustrated though, which is no way to be on christmas eve even if you're not christian.
[04:00:48] * TheMightyBuzzard isn't but has totally culturally appropriated the holiday
[04:01:10] <AzumaHazuki> Pssh. I'm lobbying to put the Saturn back in Saturnalia
[04:01:19] <AzumaHazuki> Jesus was not born in winter
[04:01:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> i don't care, long as i get family and presents and it's a wonderful life and die hard
[04:03:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> would be cooler to have santa be an alien from one of saturn's moons though
[04:04:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> magical reindeer are all fine and good but coming from saturn would make it a space ship too, so extra cool points.
[04:04:57] <AzumaHazuki> God of the harvest. ate his own kids. fuckin' metal
[04:05:38] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya, i was assuming they got fed up with what we've done to the neighborhood and moved to their planetary namesakes.
[04:06:58] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - No, Spotify, You Shouldn’t Have Sent Mysterious USB Drives to Journalists - https://sylnt.us - even-smart-people-can-be-dumb
[04:07:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> planets who they are the namesakes for?
[04:07:10] * TheMightyBuzzard shurgs
[04:09:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> huh, i can't remember where the roman gods hung out. olympus for the greeks i remember but it's been too many years since i read all those books in the library rather than doing homework like i was supposed to.
[04:12:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh, looks like they didn't even bother changing the name for that.
[04:23:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> okey doke, time to flop in bed and read until sleep
[04:26:03] <TheMightyBuzzard> rereading dakota cassidy's accidental friends series. paranormal rom-com. and no i ain't ashamed of reading that as a guy. they're light and funny and don't get preachy on political stuff.
[04:39:43] <AzumaHazuki> why do you feel the need to justify it?
[04:40:09] <AzumaHazuki> also the accepted terminology is "no homo." you know, so all your totally not-at-all-gay d00dbr0 pals know you're not, like a fag or something
[05:15:13] <chromas> It's not gay if the balls don't touch
[06:11:39] * TheMightyBuzzard passes by after his last smoke before bed
[06:14:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> AzumaHazuki, that wasn't justifying, that was plugging. self-deprecating, sarcastic former beauty queen who's known to sit around on tiwtter in her bath robe and tiara. she don't write epic fantasy but she writes reliably funny stuff that's easy to read.
[06:15:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, wait, my balls are always touching each other. so i'm gay and azuma's not?
[06:15:22] * TheMightyBuzzard learns something new

[11:13:47] <Runaway1956> Merry Christmas everyone! I'm putting the ham on to cook right now!
[11:17:47] <chromas> Midnight Ham™
[11:18:58] <Runaway1956> I'm sure proud of this oversized slow cooker - spent days searching for it on the internet
[11:19:17] <Runaway1956> 10 qt is just big enough for a nice ham or a small to medium sized turkey
[11:19:44] <Runaway1956> a monster turkey still has to go in the oven though
[11:24:16] <Runaway1956> nvidia sucks ass in some respects
[11:24:45] <Runaway1956> it's hell getting the driver installed, so I downloaded all of the current drivers into one directory on a USB
[11:25:07] <Runaway1956> alas, for some reason, none of them work properly, I get no CUDA
[11:25:08] <chromas> Void doesn't have a package?
[11:25:39] <Runaway1956> none of the distros has a package for the non-free direct-from-nvidia
[11:26:07] <Runaway1956> so, I've tried to set up nvidia repo and that doesn't work because signing problems
[11:26:24] <Runaway1956> right now, I'm setting up a local repository from their repository
[11:26:47] <Runaway1956> they should keep their signing keys up-to-date AND their release files
[11:27:03] <Runaway1956> system chokes at every update because they aren't valid
[11:28:15] <chromas> Hm. AUR pulls from nvidia. Maybe you can borrow a pkgbuild
[11:28:29] <Runaway1956> maybe I should have looked at that
[11:28:48] <Runaway1956> I'm on the old computer, Void didn't want to work so well
[11:29:09] <Runaway1956> I'm using a non-systemd deb derivative here

[11:30:30] <Runaway1956> Yes, I have CUDA and all the drivers in that directory
[11:30:45] <Runaway1956> and they're all humongous
[11:31:37] <Runaway1956> humongous being relative to available bandwidth - you don't download all of that in a day here
[11:32:42] <Runaway1956> the CUDA installer actually installs the driver, version 440.33
