[00:14:01] <chromas> How does a package from Texas get to Colorado, sit there all day, and expect to be delivered in Washington the next day?
[00:14:16] * chromas blames Trump's USPS unsubstantiated meddling

[00:26:45] <Dr_Wu> Chromas, it happens because the NSA's TAO intercepted your cheap laptop and hid shizzleshits in it.
[00:27:13] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Microsoft Acquires ZeniMax Media and Bethesda Softworks for $7.5 Billion - https://sylnt.us - Big-Deal
[00:28:23] <chromas> oh noes
[00:28:26] <Dr_Wu> Oh nice, Bender. So instead of being kinda-workable games with SJW AIDS riddled throughout, they'll become totally unworkable games with Indian Poo-Poo stink riddled throughout
[00:29:25] <Bytram> =g "Steely Dan" "Wu"

[00:29:33] <Dr_Wu> What do you think, fellas -- are we gonna see some chimpouts after November 3rd? And for how long?
[00:29:36] <Bytram> Dr_Wu: ^^^
[00:29:39] <Dr_Wu> The US
[00:30:23] <chromas> Are we not already seeing them?
[00:30:35] <chromas> I guess they took a break for the smokeout
[00:30:40] <Bytram> afk, biab
[00:31:04] <Dr_Wu> Yeah good point.
[00:31:11] <Dr_Wu> I guess it will take a local to make a decent guess.
[00:31:22] <Dr_Wu> I'll be bugging out to a safe place regardless.
[00:32:42] <Dr_Wu> If this shit goes long-term I'll join a militia in the Arizona Boonies.
[00:33:13] <Dr_Wu> Not one of those racist ones. One of the Constitutionalist ones dedicated to ridding America of its "hidden enemies."
[00:34:06] <Dr_Wu> COMMIES.
[00:34:14] <Ingar> I hoarded popcorn
[00:34:32] <Dr_Wu> hoarding popcorn is an awesome move if you're already out in the boonies.
[00:34:33] <Ingar> waiting for the implosion of the USA live on CNN
[00:34:59] <Dr_Wu> Implosion would be a good opportunity for rebirth, but only if my side wins
[00:35:00] <Dr_Wu> hahahahaha
[00:35:14] <lld> Dr_Wu: you're bugging out? just curious, do you have a satellite phone?
[00:35:45] <Dr_Wu> lld, I'll improvise. My bugout places have a lot of sympathetic hams.
[00:36:07] <lld> nice, I am into ham, reception anyway
[00:36:51] <lld> get all your ham equipment before civilization collapses :)
[00:37:17] <Dr_Wu> Yeah, I know man. I'll have to get one of those hand-crank ham radios
[00:37:23] <Dr_Wu> with shitty as fuck range
[00:37:52] <Dr_Wu> Found out that an FCC license is not perpetual like the fuckers who sold it to me told me it would be
[00:38:00] <lld> or just do a small solar setup for charging small equipment
[00:38:00] <Dr_Wu> apparantly it expires after 10 years.
[00:38:07] -!- nutherguy [nutherguy!~some@67.223.okg.wi] has joined #soylent
[00:38:25] <chromas> did you buy it on the black market or something?
[00:38:45] <lld> battery, controller, panel, these are usually 3 basic items for a basic solar setup
[00:38:55] <Dr_Wu> No Chromas, it's legit. Maybe they changed the rules later or something, I dunno. I got it around the turn of the century.
[00:38:59] <lld> good enough for charging usb devices and laptops
[00:39:09] <Dr_Wu> lld, solar works well in my bugout spots.
[00:39:11] <lld> won't be enough for 100W hams though
[00:40:24] <chromas> I know they expire but they don't really cost anything unless your VEC is a money grubber
[00:40:58] <Dr_Wu> Chromas, if i recall the price I paid was around 500-ish american dollars around the turn of the century
[00:41:24] <Dr_Wu> I got the ship radar endorsement though, so that's a little extra
[00:41:27] <Dr_Wu> does that sound right?
[00:41:40] <chromas> holy titfucking donkeyshit dude
[00:41:44] <nutherguy> Doctor Doctor gave me the news, Dr_Wu has a bad case of loving zumi
[00:41:52] <Dr_Wu> Did I getz Jewed on that one?
[00:42:01] <chromas> well the money probably all went to the radar part. I don't know anything about that
[00:42:10] <Dr_Wu> GROL
[00:42:46] <Dr_Wu> nutherguy, I don't know anybody else who would do that just for Trump.
[00:43:33] <nutherguy> Is that EF, or is that not EF?
[00:43:38] <Dr_Wu> Chromas, it was a crash course. Meaning that we went to school 8 hours a day for a few days and after a test we got our licenses fucking instantly in 3 days, Special program I guess
[00:43:40] <chromas> true or false
[00:43:48] <chromas> Ethanol-booled
[00:43:58] <chromas> unsigned, of course
[00:45:41] <Dr_Wu> allright, gonna head out. May be back to shitpost later

[01:20:58] <tedious> Looks like the python_targets update didn't break anything. :)
[01:41:41] <AzumaHazuki> oh, gentoo's moved to targeting 3.8 now?
[02:10:19] <tedious> setuptools:>=dev-python/setuptools_scm-4.1.2 python_targets_python3_6
[02:10:34] <tedious> Weird.
[02:35:31] <Bender> [SoylentNews] - Senate’s Encryption Backdoor Bill is 'Dangerous for Americans,' Says Rep. Lofgren - https://sylnt.us - sudden-insight
[03:23:20] <requerdanos> "Backdoored" means "Deliberately compromised by design," which is, yeah, bad.
[03:25:50] <requerdanos> is the "The FBI is mad" link supposed to be part of the quoted techcrunch story?
[03:32:10] <chromas> I think it's supposed to be the next article
[03:32:16] <chromas> Thanks for the notice :)
[03:32:19] <chromas> requerdanos++
[03:32:19] <Bender> karma - requerdanos: 3
[03:32:43] <requerdanos> looks odd both places, in the story and in the summary, is all
[03:33:25] <Fnord666> Thank you requerdanos
[03:34:11] <Fnord666> and you are correct. Chromas will take care of it. :)
[03:41:40] <TheMightyBuzzard> requerdanos, also means fucked in the ass. so accurate by either meaning.
[03:42:38] <requerdanos> "Dangerous for Americans" is a US-centric but accurate assesment, I'd say
[03:43:38] <chromas> It's sometimes useful in the rest of the world, too, like when conversing about metric or traffic circles.
[03:43:45] <AzumaHazuki> i hate how this country is doing everything it can possibly do wrong not only wrong but in the dumbest most humiliating way possible
[03:43:58] <AzumaHazuki> whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make fucking ridiculous
[03:47:58] <Bytram> chromas: that is a roundabout way of putting things
[03:49:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> AzumaHazuki, welcome to humanity. we do that.
[03:49:26] <AzumaHazuki> no, "we" do not. this is a failure of institutions and humanity both
[03:49:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, metric? you can keep your kilometers per hour, i'll stick with my budweisers per freedom eagle
[03:50:11] <TheMightyBuzzard> erm, isn't that what i said?
[03:51:07] <chromas> Is the US version of metric "meteric"?
[03:57:19] <requerdanos> I have done lots of dumb humiliating things.
[03:57:45] <pinchy> such as post on slashdot
[03:57:59] <requerdanos> done that too.
[04:01:25] <chromas> Posting on Soylent could be humiliating if there were enough users
[04:03:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, we don't allow <img> tags. we're safe from nude EF selfies as long as we don't click on links.
[04:03:46] <Fnord666> Thank $deity
