[02:53:58] <AzumaHazuki> that one about the painkillers is brilliant. I was not aware the u-opioid receptor had an allosteric site on it; this means it's like the GABA-A receptor and how benzos are positive allosteric modulators of it without actually being specific agonists for it

[05:00:38] <c0lo> ^^^ coming up in front of scotus this Wed https://www.edweek.org
[05:04:40] <AzumaHazuki> this is ridiculous, this case
[05:04:50] <AzumaHazuki> what people do on their own fucking time is their own fucking business
[05:08:24] <c0lo> Now, replace 'people' with 'children', AzumaHazuki
[05:08:51] <AzumaHazuki> so long as they're not breaking laws
[05:09:11] <AzumaHazuki> and how old is this child, anyway? 17 is a child, but a lot closer to adult than 10 or 12
[05:09:39] <c0lo> And, while at it, replace "fucking" with "sex" (large grin)
[05:11:04] <c0lo> "and how old is this child, anyway?". You mean... you didn't even read the story before offering your opinion?
[05:12:42] <c0lo> "17 is a child, but a lot closer to adult than 10 or 12" I don't know why I recall something similar in some arguments RMS made.
[05:20:00] <AzumaHazuki> you do realize freedom of speech is rather different than sex, no?
[05:21:20] <c0lo> (large grin)
[05:23:09] <c0lo> Aren't sexual education and how to speak in society part of the education the children should have?
[05:25:45] <c0lo> I reckon I can sorta see the point whether or not the school has anything to do once the child leaves the ground, but I hesitate quite a lot to agree with "what a child does in her/his own time is the child business and noone else's"

[05:29:23] * AzumaHazuki facedesks, doesn't have the spoons for this
[06:05:34] <Runaway1956> Oh my - my poor video card!!
[06:05:49] <Runaway1956> I uninstalled Folding at Home because Dear Wife complained.
[06:06:16] <Runaway1956> She left for work, and I had the machine all to myself - been diddling around in it for most of 3 hours
[06:06:41] <Runaway1956> SOMEONE was playing with "gaming utilities" and somehow turned off the video card fans.
[06:06:57] <Runaway1956> Almost makes a guy want to cry . . .
[06:07:20] <Runaway1956> Anyway, I have all three fans set to 100% all the time now, and temps are staying stable
[06:07:29] <Runaway1956> That's the big card
[06:07:42] <Runaway1956> the little card only has two fans, but they are set the same way
[06:08:00] <Runaway1956> FAHControl tells me that the machine should make 1 1/4 million PPD
[06:09:04] <Runaway1956> Additionally, cleaned the entire case, replaced a case fan with a larger fan so it exhausts hot air better
[06:10:36] <chromas> Got any intake fans?
[06:11:09] <Runaway1956> Yeah, 3 120 mm intake fans, two 120 mm exhaust fans, plus the power supply exhaust
[06:12:04] <chromas> How loud are the gpu fans? Maybe someone figured fast fans = noisy pc, off fans = quiet
[06:12:29] <Runaway1956> I suppose someone did some such thing - don't know who or why
[06:12:49] <Runaway1956> 3 boys come through the house, and Mother leaves her account open all the time

[06:14:10] <Runaway1956> As for "how loud" the machine is - not any louder than the box fan the wife keeps running all the time for her asthma
[06:14:24] <chromas> replace the fan control icon with a script that pops up a giant "NO" dialog box
[06:14:34] <Runaway1956> LOL
[06:15:28] <chromas> in the olden days you could put a 0xff or something character in a filename and then you couldn't do anything with it in the gui
[06:15:36] <chromas> So you could have an undeletable icon on the desktop
[06:16:24] <Runaway1956> Well, this icon is half-hidden anyway - it's down there in the toolbar, gotta click an up arrow to access it
[06:16:35] <Runaway1956> most people won't know to look for it
[06:16:44] <chromas> Do they do anything fun on the pc or could you just put the folder in the garage and replace their pc with an intel nuc?
[06:16:50] <Runaway1956> it's the kid who thinks he's a gamer who would look for it
[06:17:16] <Runaway1956> It's her machine - I don't have another machine that will power that GPU
[06:17:42] <Runaway1956> I suppose I could rebuild one of the machines sitting around with a better power supply -
[06:17:55] <Runaway1956> that takes some time and some money,
[06:18:03] <Runaway1956> better to get a new machine, maybe
[06:18:33] <chromas> a little visual basic and you could have a "gaming optimizer" icon that does nothing but with progress bars for the kid to discover
[06:18:52] * Runaway1956 prefers to beat him with a big stick
[06:19:23] <chromas> Are cpu points worth anything?
[06:19:57] <Runaway1956> Not much, really. My 32 cores can crunch at full power, and only produce 50 to 75 k points
[06:20:20] <chromas> lame
[06:20:30] <Runaway1956> They're worth something, but even an old Nvidia 730 will equal my CPU output
[06:21:00] <Runaway1956> I have an empty slot that will take one of my spare 730 cards - I should put it in
[06:21:30] <Runaway1956> besides, I don't like my CPUs to crunch because of fan noise, lol
[06:23:18] <chromas> I've got a gtx 960
[06:23:29] <chromas> The cpu is faster at rendering than the gpu
[06:23:53] <Runaway1956> Odd . . you either have a super fast CPU, or a crap GPU
[06:24:08] <Runaway1956> 960 is a pretty good card
[06:24:21] <chromas> it's just a 3950
[06:24:51] <chromas> which sounds like what you've got
[06:24:58] <chromas> or do you have a threadripper?
[06:25:32] <Runaway1956> CPUs? No, I have 4 magnacours octo-cores
[06:26:21] <chromas> is that like a four-socket board?
[06:26:40] <Runaway1956> CPU:
[06:26:40] <Runaway1956> Topology: 4x 8-Core model: AMD Opteron 6134 bits: 64 type: MCP SMP
[06:26:40] <Runaway1956> L2 cache: 16.0 MiB
[06:26:54] <Runaway1956> Yup, it's full-fledged 2u server, lol
[06:27:05] <chromas> That's awesome
[06:27:12] <chromas> tell the wife I'm coming over for dinner
[06:27:19] <Runaway1956> lol
[06:27:35] <Runaway1956> I never run out of resources, even running my virtual machines
[06:28:17] <chromas> That's the problem I've been having on this box. Haven't filled the ram, but never closing stuff just makes rebooting more of a chore
[06:28:22] <Runaway1956> If I had it to do over again, it would be a 3u box - the MOBO is alright but there's so little room in it
[06:28:47] <chromas> you could probably get a 3u case off ebay for cheap
[06:29:09] <Runaway1956> I've looked a couple times - didn't save the searches or anything
[06:29:21] <Runaway1956> didn't like what I found at the asking prices at the time
[06:29:36] <Runaway1956> this server shit gets overpriced by most people
[06:30:05] <Runaway1956> it's like driving an 18-wheeler - everything is marked up an extra 500% just because it's a big truck
[06:30:10] <chromas> like wedding and medical supplies

[09:06:52] <FatPhil> Please tell me how to react
[09:07:36] <AzumaHazuki> the big one, that i won't live to 33, never went away entirely. smaller ones are starting to pop up though

[09:09:28] <SedBot> <c0lo> Get down from the 800% weekly thiamine in one dose and sleep through them, Zumi.
[09:12:14] <AzumaHazuki> it's likely over for me. a lot of things are falling into place and making sense now. i've metaphorically drawn the Death tarot
[09:12:29] <AzumaHazuki> it could mean transformative change, or literal death. my timeline is in danger again
[09:13:06] <FatPhil> you do realise that's all meaningless woo-woo, don't you?
[09:14:31] <c0lo> *eye-roll* never experiencing such feelings, they are for me at the same level as abrahamic faiths are for you, Zumi
[09:14:34] <AzumaHazuki> like i said, metaphorically
[09:15:03] <AzumaHazuki> please trust me that after several close encounters with death i know what it feels like when it's approaching. i can't put it into words
[09:15:18] <AzumaHazuki> the closest i can get is there's this awful feeling of the edges of time blurring or buzzing
[09:15:33] <FatPhil> Then adopt "poetically" rather than "metaphorically" instead. It's your choice.
[09:21:37] <AzumaHazuki> none of this is making sense, is it? sounds like the words of a madwoman, but it's the truth
[09:22:09] <AzumaHazuki> i think...if you come too close to death too many times, you become less "real." Everything starts feeling like a movie or something, and you get odd premonitions
[09:22:13] <c0lo> Sleep deprivation and fasting on a regular basis. Stress spiking through the sky from time to time and recently. An anamnesis that matches https://en.wikipedia.org
[09:22:14] <systemd> ^ 03Altered state of consciousness - Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org )
[09:22:27] <AzumaHazuki> except, i've been sleeping enough and eating enough
[09:22:40] <c0lo> WTF are you doing up at 5:00 AM in the morning anyway?
[09:24:46] <AzumaHazuki> i have a night shift schedule remmeber
[09:25:27] <AzumaHazuki> ...hopefully still have it. i have a terrible feeling i'm going to be harassed out of this job in 5 weeks and 4 days when my medical leave is over. we've already lost 5 people and this can NOT be making me popular
[09:26:17] <AzumaHazuki> hence where the feelings of impending doom are coming from. losing this job will make me unemployable and unlikely to get to Canada. i will likely have to quit it before these 6 weeks are up and try to return to Walgreens or hire in at Rite-Aid, and that will be a massive money downgrade
[09:27:13] <c0lo> So you're on leave now? Get to sleep and see the daylight for as many hours possible. Humans aren't nocturnal animals.
[09:28:01] <c0lo> Let the future be the future.
[09:29:52] <AzumaHazuki> my time's frozen until i can take action again. i've been planning on what to tell the union to try and stave this off
[09:30:32] <AzumaHazuki> as well as possible lateral transfers within the hospital if need be, or to one of the others in network. as well as Walgreens or Rite-Aid. But none of this is idea. this is a very bad position to be in
[09:31:11] <AzumaHazuki> meanwhile, i must see a doctor and get several organs tested to see where the burnout affected me most and where it started from. and it may be time for some meds. sertraline 25mg might do it, as much as i distrust them
[09:32:54] <c0lo> Get your tests before medicating, yes. And push it as the first priority.
[09:33:12] <AzumaHazuki> i can't keep doing this alone. it's become maladaptive and the world is changing. a solitary blade is still just one blade. i don't like my chances...
[09:34:02] <c0lo> You mean you need to get married or what?
[09:35:06] <AzumaHazuki> i need to stop facing this world alone
[09:35:30] <AzumaHazuki> marriage is a long way off. for THAT i need to rescue my girlfriend from that toxic family of hers. overseas.
[09:35:39] <AzumaHazuki> it may never happen. we both know this.
[09:41:11] * AzumaHazuki sighs. "As it is, I have to accept that if things go wrong I may very well never make it to Canada. I might have to try for an asylum claim. And THAT might entail coming out at work, which could get me killed"
[09:41:53] <AzumaHazuki> that place talks a good diversity game, and we have an out lesbian already, but she's a total narcissist and no one likes her. i'm still fresh meat and seemingly on the verge as it is
[09:42:31] <c0lo> I already told you to push those tests as the first priority. Can't do more than that.
[09:43:29] <AzumaHazuki> right. intake for the psychological end of things tomorrow, hopefully a primary care visit soon after. i suspect issues in the adrenals and/or thyroid, possibly the HPA axis
[09:44:17] <AzumaHazuki> if i end up with a late cycle again i'll know it's hormonal
[09:46:42] <c0lo> Had a good friend back in my native country who got her thyroid killed. Took about a year to get back to her new self. Finger crossed it's not your case.

[09:48:33] <AzumaHazuki> this is probably adrenal/HPA-mediated. i'm not depressed so much as anxious, though there is a common aetiology as mouse studies show
[09:49:56] <AzumaHazuki> sertraline seems to be the most benign of the SSRI class and is specifically indicated for PTSD and GAD. their common mechanism of action seems to be downregulating the 5HTA1 autoreceptor, by extension affecting brain-derived neurotrphic factor
[09:50:02] <AzumaHazuki> quite literally healing mental trauma
[09:53:45] <c0lo> plausible by the look of it... but I'm not a physician. Just a former physicist doing software engineering to longer times that I care to remember.
[09:55:17] <AzumaHazuki> these are all just needless, flailing efforts. i don't belong here. really, i should have died a long, long time ago
[09:56:57] <c0lo> Goto sleep, Zumi. The physicians and patho labs are running daytime business hours.
[09:58:15] <c0lo> You have no reasons to live a vampire circadian rhythm.
[09:59:37] <AzumaHazuki> my rhythm is still adjusted for nighttime and i've got things to do early(ish) this morning
[10:00:04] <AzumaHazuki> my mother's coming to buffalo this summer and we're trying to get well ahead out on mailing applications out for apartments. i am in deep trouble if i lose this job before we secure something
[10:00:19] <AzumaHazuki> 5 weeks and 4 days to go. 39 days. at maximum.
[10:01:34] <c0lo> I see you blocked yourself in running doom scenarios in your head. Those don't help.
[10:01:53] <c0lo> Goto sleep.

[10:07:52] <AzumaHazuki> there are much worse fates than death. as awful and abortive as my life's been i can confidently say i've made the world slightly better overall for being in it
[10:10:27] <AzumaHazuki> maybe this just means i need to stop fighting so hard. taking on the entire world alone is foolish. that sword or letter opener or whatever it is needs to rest
[10:12:55] <c0lo> " taking on the entire world alone is foolish." You betcha.
