[00:47:05] <c0lo> IDK what the italians will offer. For sure, they'll not offer F-18.
[00:47:55] <AzumaHazuki> whatever they offer, we won't be able to refuse it =P

[00:48:56] <AzumaHazuki> aaaah, jeez, i'm exhausted and there's 2 more days of this utter IV making insanity to go. every tech i talk to says they've never seen anything like it and don't understand how i'm keeping up
[00:49:10] <AzumaHazuki> TBH i'm worried i'll run out of power after tonight. am really, really tired.
[00:52:56] <c0lo> Told yea it a distance run, time yourself. Eat something, go to sleep are the most important things you can do in such situations.

[01:03:15] <AzumaHazuki> c0lo, yeah...thing is, it's ALSO a race, because the demand is fucking nuts. no one's ever seen this before. and the pharmacist is kind of s self-centered asshole
[01:03:57] <c0lo> still 2 days to go?
[01:04:00] <AzumaHazuki> so i don't think i can count on him for help if i fall too far behind. worse, he's a real chauvinist, so he's likely to deliberately not help, or do it late and then go to management and go "Marissa couldn't keep up tonight" or something
[01:04:03] <AzumaHazuki> yeah, this is bugshit
[01:04:53] <AzumaHazuki> i couldn't sleep enough. i spent 7 hours "sleeping" but kept waking up with odd dreams. just have to hope it's business as usual and nothing like that awful glucagon prep shows up again
[01:05:49] <c0lo> People skills, Zumi. No matter what the outcome, send a generic email to mgmt thanking the pharmacists for his support.
[01:06:19] <AzumaHazuki> indeed :) I have to think devious. catching flies with sticky poisonous molasses, as opposed to vinegar
[01:06:29] <c0lo> Yeap.
[01:06:57] <AzumaHazuki> ...seriously though someone needs to kick this guy in the ham'n'eggs so hard they find his testicles up behind his brainstem
[01:07:34] <AzumaHazuki> like if we're so fuckin' busy put the goddamn tablet down, asshole
[01:08:19] <c0lo> You can afford a "fall" while you still learn to run - won't be as damaging now as it would be later.
[01:09:55] <c0lo> Chill him now, build reputation slowly. You may have occasions to kick his nuts later, if you will be still interested (likely, you won't be. Water under the bridge)
[01:10:13] <AzumaHazuki> i have to wonder if i'm being set up. my technique is good but the demand is utterly insane. if I "fall" now, in some ways that will look worse than later
[01:10:24] <AzumaHazuki> "oh, only two days, she needed help on day 3. she can't go the distance"
[01:10:38] <AzumaHazuki> nevermind how insane things have been, i don't think anyone will give a shit
[01:12:21] <AzumaHazuki> ...hah. funny thing is i'm catching up to the other two in terms of speed, while not compromising sterility. i don't watch the others work anymore because it makes my arteries fuzz up ><
[01:12:28] <c0lo> Even more a "thanking X for all the support he offered" will raise the idea of "support" in the mind of mgmt. Later, it may turn out that "all the offered support" wasn't been that much.
[01:13:25] <c0lo> (may or may not work ^^^ but it surely doesn't cost much)
[01:14:48] <AzumaHazuki> geh...just got to take it one night at a time. i've been severely underestimating myself it seems. still, this tiredness is worrying. hopefully it's because i haven't had caffeine yet
[01:16:11] <c0lo> Anyhow, eat and go to sleep. Read a boring book before. Moby-Dick may be just appropriate.
[01:16:28] <AzumaHazuki> i have to leave for day 3 in about 20 minutes. this is my "morning"
[01:16:57] <c0lo> *After* you finish your shi(f)t.
[01:17:25] <AzumaHazuki> yeah. ugh, even 6mg of melatonin after last shift didn't put me out properly. WTF.
[01:17:49] <c0lo> Have as rich a breakfast you can have now and plenty of coffee.
[01:18:27] <AzumaHazuki> yup. i've at least got this much planned...
[01:19:27] <c0lo> Melatonin. You aware of the link with it inducing vivid dreams?

[01:19:31] <systemd> ^ 03Melatonin Dreams: Does Melatonin Cause Vivid Dreams?
[01:19:33] <AzumaHazuki> indeed i am
[01:20:00] <AzumaHazuki> they happened the night before last without it too, though. David Lynch has apparently decided the back of my skull makes a nice projector screen
[01:20:02] <c0lo> So, better use a mild sedative.
[01:20:22] <AzumaHazuki> nyquil, yeah. i hate anticholinergic medicines but if i need it i need it
[01:21:08] * bacterium juggles a few C₂H₆O molecules
[01:23:07] <c0lo> If you tolerate B vits, take them in the *morning* with your coffee. You'll piss the excess anyway.
[01:24:01] <c0lo> They'll give you a longer "high" than coffee.
[01:24:09] <AzumaHazuki> yup. i'm taking this ridiculous B complex
[01:24:34] <AzumaHazuki> most of them are just over the RDA but the B1 (thiamine) is apparently 8333%. And yes I am pissing what smells like liquid sulphur
[01:24:43] <c0lo> Good. Toilet cleaner may be happy to be employed.
[01:25:28] <AzumaHazuki> well, i'm giving it 100% and doing my best. it just may be in this situation my best isn't quite enough. and i don't feel i can count on my pharmacist to have my back
[01:25:59] <AzumaHazuki> that's the real problem here, that I don't trust him and don't think management understands I'm putting 100% in despite them constantly seeing it and even saying they see it a few times
[01:26:43] <c0lo> Don't count on him. Don't forget to ask him for a helping hand (and thank him after), but don't count on his help.
[01:27:19] <AzumaHazuki> yeah, that's where i'm at mentally. aside from that idiot glucagon i actually kept on top of or even ahead of everything else, so...
[01:27:40] <c0lo> Zumi, just 2 days to go. You'll think of mgmt and the bigger picture later.
[01:27:59] <AzumaHazuki> you're right. one day, hell, one individual prep, at a time
[01:28:16] <AzumaHazuki> all i can do is frontload myself with vitamins and noms and go in there with as clear a head as possible
[01:28:56] <c0lo> It is what it is, crisis now. You don't draw bird-eye pictures now, you do what minimal actions you can to tame him.
[01:29:32] <c0lo> ... and abstain from anything that antagonise with him.
[01:29:49] <AzumaHazuki> right
[01:30:13] <AzumaHazuki> sometimes i think that guy's got mental issues. i know he lost a close family member recently and isn't coping well, but god damn

[10:57:42] <chromas> If the can goes stale it sounds like you're just not drinking enough coffee
[11:11:01] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, coffee can go stale in short enough order that the last several pots of a pound is kinda manky if you don't keep air mostly away from it

[13:03:32] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, i occasionally want to use it too. i just have enough sense to look before i put my bare ass on something.

[13:58:57] * Teckla wonders why the Raspberry Pi folks didn't include F11 and F12 keys on the Raspberry Pi 400 keyboard.
[14:03:05] <Bytram> Teckla: Wha? F11 and F12 have been around since IBM 3270 days!
[14:03:18] <Bytram> =w IBM 3270
[14:03:19] <systemd> The IBM 3270 is a family of block oriented display and printer computer terminals introduced by IBM in 1971 and normally used to communicate with IBM mainframes - https://en.wikipedia.org
[14:05:46] <boru> No surprise. The entire platform is a collection of bad design choices.
[14:06:34] <Bytram> Early 3270s offered three types of keyboards. The typewriter keyboard came in both a 66 key version, with no programmed function (PF) keys, and a 78 key version with twelve. Both versions had two Program Attention (PA) keys.[9][10] The data entry keyboard had five PF keys and two PA keys. The operator console keyboard had twelve PF keys and two PA keys
[14:07:08] <Bytram> Later 3270s had an Attention[b] key, a Cursor Select[c] key, a System Request key, twenty-four PF keys and three PA keys.
[14:09:36] <Teckla> Bytram: Yeah! I wouldn't buy a Raspberry Pi 400 for the lack of F11 and F12 keys *alone*
[14:10:19] <Teckla> Once they come out with an RPi that can play 1080p buttery smooth with no dropped frames, I might get one.
[14:10:53] <FatPhil> with the codecs for the GPU that's been possible for ages
[14:15:32] <Bytram> Way Way back in ancient days, I remember programming an "Incident Reporting Facility" to track problems that arose during testing that were not well qualified... e.g. no clear steps to reproduce. OTOH, *something* strange *did* happen. We were working 24/7 at the time; 3 shifts back to back to back. By seeing what others had encountered lately, I could avoid going down a rabbit hole unnecessarily. Anyway, took full advantage of AID
[14:15:32] <Bytram> (Attribute ID) codes for cursort positioning, bold, blink, alpha-only, numeric-only, etc.
[14:17:02] <Bytram> Fun part was I wrote the whole thing in REXX, and had many an online chat with the language's author, Mike Cowlishaw (who was in the UK).
[14:17:40] <boru> I don't come across too many people who wrote rexx.
[14:18:00] <Bytram> Teckla: Huh? I thought an RPI could drive *two* 4K displays!?
[14:19:21] <Bytram> boru: I'd like to think my being an early adopter (in was all IBM internal at that point) helped locate/isolate issues and guide some aspects of its design. :)
[14:23:15] <Bytram> While I'm here, I'm having troubles trying to print a JPEG on Linux. Either through Firefox, or downloaded to a local file and loaded up with each of the programs available on Ubuntu Mate...
[14:24:20] <Bytram> My printer powers up from standby, I see some status icon pop up briefly on my computer monitor, and... nothing happens. :/
[14:24:47] <boru> What do you get when you query it with lpq or something?
[14:25:01] <Bytram> My *guess* is I might need more memory in the printer, but have no idea how to check anything.
[14:25:02] <boru> I presume you're using CUPS?

[14:25:44] <boru> What does `lpstat -pd` tell you?
[14:28:30] <Bytram> I plugged in the printer (USB - Brother B+W Laser/scanner/copier - "Brother-HL-L23890DW") and it automatically workep when I printed a page from , say Firefox.... hold on
[14:29:13] <Bytram> lpstat -pd
[14:29:13] <Bytram> lpstat: Invalid destination name in list "d".
[14:29:45] <boru> Try with `-p -d`
[14:29:58] <Bytram> lpstat -p
[14:29:58] <Bytram> printer Brother-HL-L2380DW is idle. enabled since Fri 16 Apr 2021 08:35:04 AM EDT
[14:29:58] <Bytram> printer HL-L2360D-series is idle. enabled since Fri 16 Apr 2021 08:37:16 AM EDT
[14:30:15] <boru> That's a start. Try printing manually then, I guess.
[14:30:21] <Bytram> system default destination: Brother-HL-L2380DW
[14:30:40] <Bytram> umm, how do I do that?
[14:30:52] <Bytram> cp $file /dev/something?
[14:31:03] <boru> `man 1 lp` -- need to go AFK for a few
[14:31:38] <Bytram> yeah, I just notce the time. I need to be elsewhere soon. :/
[14:31:49] <Bytram> thanks for the pointers!
[14:31:56] <Bytram> boru++
[14:31:56] <Bender> karma - boru: 50
[14:32:30] <Bytram> will check in before I leave

[15:12:28] <Bytram> thanks for the pointers! gtg. laters!!
[15:19:13] <Teckla> Bytram: Most RPi 400 demos I've seen drop frames when playing 1080p YouTube videos
[15:28:29] <Teckla> Maybe any issues have been ironed out by now, though.
[15:56:17] <Fnord666> So Bytram is to blame for all the weirdness that didn't get ironed out of REXX?
[15:56:22] <Fnord666> =blame

[17:07:27] <Runaway1956> So, uhhhhh, some guy, who happens to be gay, decided that his work was being used to violate copyright law, so he shut the project down
[17:07:47] <Runaway1956> That's just too gay
[17:30:49] <Runaway1956> Apparently, IPFS was crippled when he took all his support away, but it still works
[17:31:18] <Runaway1956> I have 324 peers around the world right now, and the number is growing
[17:33:19] <Runaway1956> Can't wait for fiber internet to be installed - probably within a year now, but no guarantees yet
[17:33:36] <Runaway1956> then I can leave things like IPFS run all the time without choking my internet off
[17:50:15] <chromas> Teckla: YouTube usually has horseshit performance compared to playing in, say, VLC. I think Firefox is only just now getting hardware-accelerated video playback on linux just now

[17:51:53] <chromas> btw did anybody #include <stdonion.h> for France the other day?

[18:23:47] <Bytram> Fnord666: Sadly, my activity with REXX was all in the early days and strictly as a user. It went on for many, many years after I left.
[18:23:52] <Bytram> =w REXX
[18:23:53] <systemd> Rexx (Restructured Extended Executor) is an interpreted programming language developed at IBM by Mike Cowlishaw. It is a structured, high-level programming - https://en.wikipedia.org
[18:24:17] <Bytram> =w EXEC2
[18:24:17] <systemd> EXEC 2 is an interpreted, command procedure control, computer scripting language used by the EXEC 2 Processor supplied with the IBM Virtual Machine/System - https://en.wikipedia.org
[18:25:45] <Bytram> Any troubles I had with REXX were utterly dwarfed by the challenges presented by trying to do nearly anything useful with EXEC2.
