[00:00:33] <kyonko> AzumaHazuki: who knew computing would become a thing of life or death, freedom or slavery
[00:01:00] <AzumaHazuki> uh, me? I was eight years old and playing with an old thinkpad when i realized "someday this is going to be everywhere"
[00:01:22] <kyonko> no way I could even have a thinkpad at age 8
[00:01:26] <Bytram> they actually kinda *did* that... created nicknames and UIDs and then accidentally blew up the database. It was a freeforall to sign up again and try for a small UID.
[00:01:57] <kyonko> Bytram: thats as far back as the google search results for slashdot go
[00:02:46] <kyonko> It gives me warm and fuzzies that something is google searchable for some reason
[00:04:26] * Bytram was early teens when I first put hand to a Teletype just after Star Trek (there was only ONE at the time w/ kirk, spock, mccoy, and scotty) -- early 70's, say... and I realized it was not the same as what I saw on TV, but I did see that This. Had. Promise.
[00:05:06] <kyonko> was it the teletype that was bullet proof?
[00:05:12] <kyonko> the top heavey model
[00:05:25] <kyonko> easily tips over over your legs
[00:05:52] * Bytram oh, and that computer had about 24K 12-bit words of memory abd was a time-sharing system with like a dozen simultaneous users on it.
[00:06:07] * Runaway1956 thought teletype was a huge machine bolted into an alcove next to the radio shack aboard ship
[00:06:10] <Bytram> =g teletype
[00:06:10] <systemd> https://en.wikipedia.org - Teleprinter - Wikipedia
[00:06:51] <kyonko> 640k ought to be enough for anybody
[00:08:18] <Bytram> looked like this, except the one I used had an acoustical couple on the right-hand side where you see a gray plate in this picture.
[00:09:07] <Bytram> on the left-hand side was the paper-tape reader and punch.
[00:09:48] <AzumaHazuki> kyonko: it wasn't mine. an uncle on my father's side had it
[00:10:02] <AzumaHazuki> i was using it to try to play solitaire. badly. to this day i still do not know the rules
[00:10:15] <Bytram> oh, and it was UPPERCASE ONLY
[00:10:51] <AzumaHazuki> but even in third grade there was this prescient feeling that these machines weren't going away and would be everywhere. though of course i had no concept of a smartphone or even a modern laptop
[00:14:37] <kyonko> AzumaHazuki: the girl who liked me in 8th grade loves solitaire
[00:14:45] <kyonko> You are a better human than her btw
[00:15:07] <AzumaHazuki> uh...thanks? i have nooooo idea what she's like so that might be a low bar
[00:15:20] <kyonko> A cowardly crossdressing lesbian
[00:16:42] <kyonko> I tried to talk to her anonymously on her blog to get her into Linux and FLOSS, and she said it was too hard
[00:17:02] <kyonko> she likes skyrim and crap
[00:17:14] <kyonko> netflix dependant
[00:18:21] <c0lo> Byram, throw a tomahawk towards TheMightyBuzzard head to solve that 500, will ye?
[00:19:29] <AzumaHazuki> wait, if she's gay how did she like you?
[00:19:50] <kyonko> she was 13, AzumaHazuki
[00:19:59] <kyonko> she went through some 1990's child abuse shit
[00:20:10] <AzumaHazuki> ah. yeah it took me till like junior year to admit to myself what I was
[00:20:26] <kyonko> same for her! how weird!
[00:21:22] <AzumaHazuki> i still laugh a little remembering my mother's reaction on coming out to her. It was, word for word, "No shit, I've known since you were 4"
[00:21:25] <kyonko> Are you a card captor sakura fan?
[00:22:04] <AzumaHazuki> I know what card captor sakura is, but the age of the characters creeps me out. doubly so because from what i've read Tomoyo and Sakura seem to be re-enacting their parents' relationship dynamic
[00:22:17] <kyonko> yes its a weird show
[00:22:31] <kyonko> but it was as sexually charged to me as sailor moon
[00:22:47] <kyonko> usagis body made me feel funny
[00:23:21] <AzumaHazuki> ...uhhhh
[00:23:38] <kyonko> I don't know much about japanese psychology, but I still get the willies remembering how I tried to re-enact trauma in my early 20's
[00:23:54] <AzumaHazuki> okay I *did* watch all of Sailor Moon. My first girlfriend in high school was obsessed, and got the entire 5 seasons subbed/pirated. They were all drawn in noodle-people style
[00:23:58] <AzumaHazuki> no one looks like that
[00:24:21] <kyonko> you know what I'm talking about
[00:24:27] <kyonko> the clamp noodle people?
[00:24:32] <AzumaHazuki> the what?
[00:24:39] <kyonko> the clamp studio
[00:24:54] <AzumaHazuki> does this have something to do with woodworking...?
[00:25:01] <kyonko> japanese love wood
[00:25:07] <kyonko> wood makes paper
[00:25:16] <kyonko> you draw with a sharpie golgo 13
[00:25:32] <AzumaHazuki> aaaand he's off in the mists of schizophrenia again...
[00:26:05] <kyonko> AzumaHazuki: are you a missionary lesbian?
[00:26:27] <AzumaHazuki> a what now?
[00:26:53] <AzumaHazuki> ...well, Ellen *did* promise me a new toaster if I converted 20 women, but it seems like a lot of work for something I can just buy at target =P
[00:29:23] <kyonko> oh so you are into conversion?
[00:29:42] <kyonko> and what is it with today's lesbians falling in love with octogenarians
[00:30:17] <kyonko> thats literally rock, sandpaper, scissors
[00:32:19] <kyonko> what if your convert turns out bi?
[00:32:24] <AzumaHazuki> that is a joke, kyonko
[00:32:42] <kyonko> I know people do gay things without being gay
[00:32:44] <AzumaHazuki> there were decades of moral panic about how gay people are supposedly trying to turn or convert straight people. that's not possible of course
[00:32:49] <kyonko> it really doesn't matter unless you are a religious
[00:33:18] <AzumaHazuki> first of all, if it were, every single woman on earth would be a lesbian. historically speaking, the way men have treated us, they'd deserve it. but you can't change someone and almost everyone is ramrod-straight by nature
[00:33:52] <kyonko> do you know about the japanese imouto incest craze?
[00:34:11] <AzumaHazuki> I know "imouto" means younger sister, and i don't like where this is going, ick
[00:34:19] <kyonko> but its a genre
[00:34:24] <AzumaHazuki> oh god why
[00:34:37] <kyonko> this imouto thing happens in a lot of cultures
[00:34:45] <AzumaHazuki> gross, gross, gross
[00:34:58] <kyonko> the girl who liked me in 8th grade, her brother is a weeb, and it happened
[00:35:27] <kyonko> he is institutionalized for that btw
[00:36:18] <AzumaHazuki> now it feels like my soul needs a shower. part of this is possibly because my younger sister and i don't get along but iiiiiiick
[00:36:32] <kyonko> oh yeah your sister, female beavis
[00:36:52] <AzumaHazuki> huh? no, she's very smart, just...not that great a person
[00:37:15] <kyonko> AzumaHazuki: I must add imouto girl wore hair in pigtails untill sophomore year
[00:37:19] <AzumaHazuki> though maybe she's changed in the last 8 or so years? still, she inherited our father's awful temper and they used to clash constantly
[00:37:44] <AzumaHazuki> okay? people wear their hair lots of ways. mine's usually in a giant braid
[00:38:24] <kyonko> the witches braid
[00:39:00] <AzumaHazuki> i don't know what a witch's braid is. this is just a really long, heavy braid because super-long hair in real life is less "glamorous" and more "gigantic pain in the neck"
[00:39:11] <kyonko> yeah I know
[00:39:28] <kyonko> go shower your soul
[00:40:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> witch's braid? prolly braided armpit hair. wait, that's a french braid.
[00:41:56] <kyonko> AzumaHazuki reeks of witch
[00:42:07] <AzumaHazuki> hey now, my soul gem is still clear
[00:42:18] <kyonko> did you play final fantasy on NES?
[00:42:28] <AzumaHazuki> a little before my time, soooo, no
[00:43:14] <kyonko> do you think the kinsey scale is real?
[00:43:40] <AzumaHazuki> in a descriptive sense, yes. and I am a 7.
[00:44:24] <kyonko> do you enjoy wearing facial underwear because of room temperature miasma?
[00:47:23] <AzumaHazuki> i come back from making a salad and i see word salad. what the hell does that mean?
[00:47:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> when in doubt, toss it
[00:48:35] <kyonko> girls don't do that
[00:48:49] <AzumaHazuki> ...make salads?
[00:49:00] <TheMightyBuzzard> kyonko, you need to meet funner girls
[00:49:04] <kyonko> AzumaHazuki is so lesbian, there are no phallic like objects used for coitus
[00:49:23] <kyonko> bumping uglies

[12:16:31] <progo> I used to live in Malden, Massachusetts. kinda a suburb-city of Boston
[12:16:47] <progo> around that area there was an epidemic of really bad shop signs
[12:17:02] <progo> printed on letter paper, printed on giant vinyl banners, the whole range
[12:17:27] <progo> I was always so annoyed that the pro sign makers were incompetent or didn't cared to help clients craft the message syntactically correct
[12:18:07] <progo> also, in Malden and nearby Everett, a lit "open" sign on a shop window means "this shop is not dead". it doesn't mean you can come in now
[12:18:30] <progo> you could see "Open" and the lights on from two blocks away, but nope! not open
[12:21:31] <progo> *didn't care to help
[12:23:05] <FatPhil> nopen
[12:23:24] <Ingar> that damn light polution should be illegal
[12:23:59] <progo> they mostly didn't leave the lights on all night, but obviously the overhead lights would be open until "close-up" procedures are done
[12:24:04] <progo> sometimes a couple of hours
[12:24:10] <progo> "open" sign never goes out
[12:26:05] <Ingar> play Thibmbleweed Park you'll feel at home :D
[12:30:23] <progo> somewhere in Malden there is probably a forever-lit "oopen" sign
[12:31:05] <progo> oh yeah, and where I used to live in Astoria, New York City, a pizza shop had animated LED sign that only said "LED sign! LED sign!"
[12:31:10] <progo> that was hilarious
[12:31:52] <FatPhil> Didn't the owner have a teenage son?
[12:32:26] <FatPhil> Obviously not, as it would have said "Dads a jerk! Dads a jerk"
[12:36:01] <AzumaHazuki> i remember astoria...
[12:37:00] <progo> no you don't

[12:38:46] <AzumaHazuki> no. i'm from flushing originally but i know astoria
[12:39:53] <AzumaHazuki> ...aaah, i'm getting nostalgic now. in the bronx, i think on castle hill, there was a place called cross bronx pizza. they made the hugest slices. one would fill you for 8 hours. they tasted amazing too
[12:39:55] <progo> I moved from Astoria to Jersey City and my sum of rent plus income tax is about the same and my apartment is twice as big
[12:42:04] <AzumaHazuki> it's still there...good. maybe someday before going to canada i'll visit NYC one more time and say goodbye to everything
[12:42:43] <progo> I need to go back and visit my mentor at school sometime, in massachusetts
[12:44:37] <AzumaHazuki> maybe it's not wise to give into nostalgia. it may not be worth the pain
[12:46:13] <progo> my mentor's lab's web site is dead :^(
[12:46:31] <progo> school says the lab still exists with the same two directors and a new address
[12:50:46] <AzumaHazuki> ugh, half my memories are missing. i'm not even sure some of the places i'm thinking of are ones i should know
[12:51:35] <progo> maybe you could borrow someone else's
[12:52:18] <AzumaHazuki> i have to make new ones, in a new country. i'll make some here in buffalo, but only for another 18 months or so. then...
[12:53:59] <FatPhil> I used to help out at a summer singing school that was held in my primary school well into adulthood, so my memories of primary school are way better than anything else of my childhood as it was repeatedly reinforced.

[12:59:13] <progo> yeah
[12:59:31] <progo> I barely remember any of my college friends
[12:59:34] <progo> except the ones I dated
[12:59:41] <FatPhil> There was the one I got into a fight with, the gay one, the one who dislocated his knee, the one whose mum did a terrible job of cutting his hair, ...
[13:01:26] <FatPhil> Oh, sheeet - now you've got me trying to remember the name of the only one I wanted to date in middle school. Narp, it's not coming to me...
[13:02:03] <progo> damn. my college mentor got fat
[13:02:54] <progo> I remember a month or two before she hired me into the lab and rescued me from the help desk: she came down to the IT help desk to talk to me about an IT problem, and we decided to go together back tto her lab for me to see it, and she FLEW up the stairs like they weren't there
[13:03:03] <progo> and I was huffing and puffing up 3 flights slowly behind her
[13:03:36] <progo> I got fat too since then, but I mean, I'm still surprised now
[13:05:45] <AzumaHazuki> i actually lost a bunch of weight. i'd always been a little overweight as a kid and teenager, and it got pretty bad about 7 years ago. i'm on the low-normal end of weight now
[13:06:01] <progo> keep at it
[13:06:27] <AzumaHazuki> eh...i went just a couple of pounds lower than where i am now and had a late period so...just going to maintain i think

[13:22:08] <FatPhil> I presently have Ted Nugent's scream from Scream Dream, but I also have a scream from a Wolfmother track too, I need some variation...
[13:22:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> FatPhil, mine's a fishing reel with a reel getting line pulled off above the drag setting. they hate it at the lake.
[13:22:19] <chromas> he sings a lot of different styles. in this song, he's imitating someone who can barely sing :D
[13:23:20] <FatPhil> I'll sing along so that he can sound *relatively* competent
[13:27:47] <FatPhil> Song's too formulaic 8-bar pentatonic rock.
[13:28:01] <FatPhil> only 3 of the 5 notes required!
[13:30:22] <chromas> how many notes do you really need, though?
[13:30:41] <Ingar> 3
[13:30:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> took me actually looking it up to figure out it wasn't the rolling stones doing you may be right.
[13:30:48] <Ingar> tonica, sub dominant and dominant
[13:30:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> he sounds a hell of a lot like mick in that song.
[13:31:15] <chromas> so rolling stones isn't very good then?
[13:31:21] <Ingar> (where the major version can be subsituted by the minor one)
[13:31:37] <Ingar> *substituted
[13:31:41] <chromas> I don't remember hearing any of their songs but it's one of those bands everybody masturbates to
[13:32:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> chromas, you've heard some if you've watched more than ten movies or commercials.
[13:32:55] <chromas> we will rock you?
[13:33:30] <chromas> and walk this way
[13:33:35] <TheMightyBuzzard> wrong band. think ferris bueller on the float.

[13:47:21] <chromas> I didn't think it was physically possible to have a mouth bigger than Julia Roberts' but somehow Mick Jagger managed to do it
[13:47:46] <chromas> Have you seen Weekend at Bernie's?

[13:50:04] <chromas> oh shit that's right. I always think of aeroughwsmith whenever i hear someone mention rolling stones

[13:55:13] <FatPhil> There's clearly some chart fodder in their oeuvre, but some really good stuff too, if you like stuff rooted in the blues.
[13:55:47] <FatPhil> /Gimme Shelter/'s probably one of my favourites.
[13:56:02] <FatPhil> But that's because I like rape and murder.

[14:21:38] <FatPhil> TheMightyBuzzard: Agree regarding bars vs. stadia, I love small venues.
[14:22:05] <FatPhil> Used to see live music almost every week when I was younger.
[14:23:54] <FatPhil> Hmmm, I wonder if I can plant some seeds in the minds of the big nobs at the brewpub, perhaps we could have occasional live music there...
[14:24:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> some friends and i were up in downtown OKC at one of the bars there and TR was getting bored so we scooted out, 15m later BB King just walked in and wanted to play
[14:24:53] <FatPhil> I have resolved that once the bars reopen and things get back to normal that I will support every live music venue and band like I was a youngster again.
[14:25:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> truth.
[14:26:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> even get a house band for either friday or saturday night. i miss house bands.
[14:27:39] <TheMightyBuzzard> some of my fondest memories are of getting righteously drunk in a bar at 16 to the sounds of a house band who knew exactly what the crowd wanted to hear
[14:29:29] <FatPhil> There was one cantina I used to go to in Helsinki several times a week where the owners (biiig names historically in the Finnish music scene) brought over some fantastic bands from LA. And yup, they knew what the crowd pleasers would be.
[14:30:08] <FatPhil> Finland being pretty METAL!! the bands could play the heavier stuff from their repertory, even if they were on paper just "hard rock".
[14:32:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> honestly, i didn't care for the nights they had a non-house-band band in. regulars got coopted as bouncers in exchange for free beer after the band was gone. on second thought i did kinda enjoy them.
[14:43:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> awe man, the owner ("aunt pat", though she wasn't anyone's actual aunt) of that place died back in 2017. looks like her son sold it.

[15:09:24] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, the only decent material she ever got was from wardrobe

[15:11:07] <FatPhil> Which also had the ever-growing wine glass?
[15:11:15] <TheMightyBuzzard> the purpose of a comedy is to make your core audience (and as many others as possible) laugh not to make them feel all smugly satisfied with themselves for having watched something.
