[08:06:25] <FatPhil> What's the difference between an AirBnB superhost and a pigeon? A pigeon can put down a deposit on a new Mercedes.
[08:08:00] <janrinok> thank you - an early chuckle on yet another day indoors....
[08:12:09] <FatPhil> my pleasure. I don't have an infinite supply, so I'll have to ration them.
[08:14:04] <FatPhil> The smile that appeared on my face this morning was caused by the fact that mail-order businesses are still running, as are international freight lorries. Therefore boxes of beer can make their way from the netherlands to Estonian customs control. Soon...
[08:15:07] <chromas> Hopefully the packers aren't coughing up COVAIDS inside the boxen
[08:16:21] <FatPhil> Packers did that 5 days ago - it's dead now!
[08:17:04] <chromas> Unless the coughed up some phlegm to give it a home. Damn nature-lovers
[08:35:38] <FatPhil> Hahhha - negative price oil has finally arrived! "The first crude stream to price below zero was Wyoming Asphalt Sour, a dense oil used mostly to produce paving bitumen. Energy trading giant Mercuria bid negative 19 cents per barrel in mid-March for the crude, effectively asking producers to pay for the luxury of getting rid of their output."
[08:41:43] <GrandFireWizard> woah
[08:41:46] <chromas> gibs me dat
[08:42:16] <chromas> I can store a few hundred barrels for some change.
[08:42:41] <GrandFireWizard> let's see negative interest rates
[08:43:44] <chromas> Does that mean I should invest my savings into loans to myself?
[08:45:16] <FatPhil> GrandFireWizard: NIRP has been done in Europe already, Germany for example.

[08:46:53] <FatPhil> Absolutely no historical economic theory ever had NIRP included as a possibility into it, so the economists who got us into this mess aren't even obeying their own dumb rules.
[08:48:27] <inz> Yeah, my mortgage currently runs at 0.08% interest. Almost free munnies.
[08:49:32] <chromas> Should I run out and grab a stack of credit cards?
[08:49:33] <FatPhil> No incentive to pay it off then!
[08:49:35] <inz> Sorry, I remembered wrong, 0.02%.
[08:49:41] <FatPhil> 8-o
[08:50:52] <inz> The 12 month euribor was at -0.36% when the previous annual check was
[09:05:26] <FatPhil> Aaaaand, the second box of beer has entered the country... Soon...
[09:11:55] <GrandFireWizard> That must be excellent beer?

[09:28:29] <FatPhil> some of the beer os from breweries that blew our socks off when we ordered some at xmas. others are new breweries we've never heard of before.
[09:46:59] <Ingar> there are 20 large breweries within a 20km radius here
[09:47:01] * Ingar safe
[09:47:32] <Ingar> erm
[09:47:36] <Ingar> two not 20 ;)

[09:48:14] <Ingar> it's the unconscious influence of april 1
[09:48:31] <Ingar> chromas: there are several smalelr breweries around though
[09:48:33] <chromas> Do Europeans say Fool's April Day?
[09:48:54] <Ingar> chromas: in dutch we just say "1 april!"
[09:49:07] <Ingar> (pronounced in dutch ofc)
[09:49:32] <Ingar> personally, I can't be bothered
[09:49:53] <chromas> I was about to say "that's not very funny" but then you said in Dutch, so it's a pretty good joke.
[09:50:53] <Ingar> sometimes the term aprilvis (aprilfish) is used
[09:52:02] <Ingar> chromas: Dutch _is_ a joke
[09:52:15] <chromas> Zing!
[09:57:08] <chromas> Cat's mad at me for typing instead of rubbing.
[09:57:32] <FatPhil> April Fool's Day is a thing, but pranks must all be done before midday.

[11:40:39] <Bytram> chromas: Have you given any thought to moving to Let's Encrypt certs?
[11:40:57] <chromas> Yes
[11:41:08] <chromas> I don't have a real domain name though
[11:41:44] <Bytram> Huh? Dynamic DNS?
[11:41:46] <chromas> As I understand it, I have to be able to edit the DNS record to put a string in for LE to work
[11:41:51] <Bytram> yep
[11:42:47] <chromas> I should look at the ddns settings and see if they'll let me do that
[11:43:21] <Bytram> that reminds me... Just checked and found that soylentnews.org's cert expired on Wednesday, May 06, 2020
[11:43:30] * chromas doesn't see any martyBytram hits in the httpd log
[11:43:52] <Bytram> look for secret skwirrel
[11:43:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, LE certs work fine on dynamic hostnames
[11:44:28] <chromas> I might have to set it up then
[11:44:52] <chromas> That way all those SEO bots can connect with TLS
[11:44:58] <TheMightyBuzzard> you do it exactly like you would for SN. just get one for chromas.imadingus.org instead of trying to get one for imadingus.org
[11:45:09] <Bytram> TheMightyBuzzard: For a relatively non-technical community that has a web site... how hard is it to move from http to https with LE certs?
[11:45:28] <chromas> Well I wasn't sure if afraid.org would let me create the required record

[11:47:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> it'll even edit the conf files
[11:48:28] <Bytram> yeah, that's the thing. I have no idea what kind of hackery may have been done to set up the site in the first place...
[11:48:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> it's a pain for SN because we have funky confs and want wildcard certs

[11:49:30] <chromas> it only needs 27 additional packages
[11:49:32] <Bytram> think of some of the "home repairs" you've heard of... like wiring up an extra electrical outlet with the wrong colors going to hot, neutral, and ground. It works.... but...
[11:50:06] <Bytram> as in daisy chaining from an existing outlet, that is.
[11:50:17] <TheMightyBuzzard> oh man, you have no idea. we had to redo every bit of wiring in the church.
[11:50:41] <Bytram> as long as the correct matching of physical wires is correct, it will work, but don't let the color be your guide.
[11:50:51] <Bytram> so, you know what I mean.
[11:51:05] <Bytram> zoinks!
[11:51:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> going outlet to outlet is standard practice and even pretty much required by NEC but BRAIDING YOUR GROUND WIRES is not. especially loosely braiding them.

[17:06:12] <FatPhil> well, thank goodness my local pub is open. almost nobody here, but that's fine.
[17:14:52] <FatPhil> we were the only people having the lunch special in the restaurant today, but still a small handful are staying open.
[17:15:06] <FatPhil> separation is very easy to maintain!

[18:31:23] <FatPhil> Holy jeebus - anyone live in a town big enough to have a reasonably-well-used internal public transport network?
[18:34:20] <FatPhil> Italy - notices passenger numbers are decreasing, reduces the service.
[18:35:16] <FatPhil> Estonia - notices Italy's public transport is a petri dish, promised to keep running every vehicle (they have to pay the wages anyway) - sometimes a bendy bus is your private taxi.
[18:35:45] <FatPhil> England - notices that Italy is saving money, and cuts services.
[18:35:58] <FatPhil> That is why I left England, it's a country of fucking retards.
[18:40:59] <carny> ride share drivers in the us have no ppe and most don't take any precautions
[18:44:48] <carny> FatPhil: isn't england supposed to be in some kind of lock down right now?
[18:45:34] <carny> it probably doesn't make sense to run all the busses if there's nobody riding them
[18:45:45] <carny> but i haven't paid much attention to the uk recently
[18:47:02] <FatPhil> carny: in a mad panic at the results of their previous stupidity, yes, they've recently ramped up everything massively.
[18:47:38] <FatPhil> I guess Sidiq Kahn's geniouse decision to cut routes was 2-3 weeks ago.
[18:48:09] <FatPhil> It would correlate well with idiot clown Johnson shaking hands with everyone on a hospital.
[18:48:56] <FatPhil> Anyone who went into that hospital without CoVid who left with it should have a criminal suit against that professional fuqnut Bojo.
[18:59:11] <carny> agreed
[18:59:33] <carny> does britain still have beheading offenses?
[18:59:50] <FatPhil> Only in the no-go areas in birmingham ;-)
[19:05:50] <AndyTheAbsurd> FatPhil: my town cut reduced service on our buses a few weeks back; mostly by not running them as late at night.
[19:13:25] <FatPhil> with curfews, that makes sense.
[19:13:37] <FatPhil> all our pubs strictly close at 10pm now
[19:14:05] <FatPhil> and fooderies, if they are later, must be take-away only.
[19:15:59] <carny> what does closing time have to do with controlling a virus?
[19:17:22] <carny> if people are going to meet in a pub and spread the virus by having sex they can do it regardless of when they get kicked out
[19:31:34] <FatPhil> it reduces the amount of socialisation that takes place, reduces contact.
[19:32:03] <FatPhil> if people are going to meet up for sex, then the pub wasn't needed at all, so your point has nothing to to with pub curfews.

[20:29:08] <carny> i just don't see the point in moving up closing a few hours
[20:44:36] <chromas> Flatten the Curve™, carny. Just Do It
[20:47:41] <AndyTheAbsurd> yeah, you need to make all eateries take-out/drive-through/delivery only - which is what we've done where I am.
[20:49:42] <chromas> Spray your beers and sammiches with bleach to be sure, then send them out to the customer through pneumatic tubes like at the bank.
[20:53:18] <FatPhil> shorter hours also discourages people from getting drunk, and forgetting now-essential hygiene.
[20:54:24] <chromas> Sorta takes away the whole point though
[20:59:45] <FatPhil> that's what the 75% alcohol's for
[21:00:26] <chromas> Yeah. If your ABV is high enough, you'll be clean and can touch all you want.

[21:52:14] <patchman> stuff i remember best from past conferences is turing complete powerpoint and selfexecutable researchpaper
[21:53:17] <patchman> summarized a bunch of silly hackers with some pretty cool useless presentations
[21:54:34] <patchman> i hope this stream is not it, because that would be disappointing.. should start in five minutes.
[21:54:37] <chromas> Does powerpoint give access to sockets? Could a person write an irc bot in powerpoint?
[21:56:01] <Bytram> could you write a powerpoint with an irc bot?
[21:56:37] <chromas> Yes!
[22:02:01] <patchman> okay, so that youtube stream is never going to show a picture.. pff
[22:02:28] <chromas> Gotta save them bits
[22:02:57] <patchman> kinda such when you can only hear presentations
