00:12 BatSteve-Away is now known as BatSteve
00:15 cctoide joined #thegeekgroup
00:21 BatSteve mikemol: if it was the other way around, would it be a sinister perspective?
00:25 cctoide Heh, reading the backlog
00:25 Seroster Has Hewlett-Packard made ANYTHING worth the money since 1995?
00:25 cctoide didn't know there were Fringe viewers here
00:25 Seroster cctoide, that was sarcasm....
00:26 cctoide what?
00:26 Seroster The human pentagram
00:27 cctoide Was that related to Fringe?
00:27 Seroster Err
00:27 Seroster I'll just defend myself with the fact that it is late here
00:27 BatSteve (grin)
00:27 cctoide Sounds good :p
00:28 BatSteve .t seroster
00:28 BotSteve BatSteve: Sorry, I don't know about the 'seroster' timezone.
00:28 BatSteve crap
00:28 Seroster Lol
00:28 * BatSteve adds timezone tracking to the wishlist
00:28 cctoide hm, for some reason I can resize the network/channel tree view on the X-Chat at home, but not here
00:28 Seroster Kopenhagen, berlin, rome.
00:30 cctoide So Moose isn't very fond of #thegeekgroup?
00:30 Seroster UTC 1
00:30 cctoide I think we went over this a few months ago, but, eh
00:30 Seroster Why isnt she?
00:31 Seroster She can talk to geeks around the clock, some of us can't, this makes us able to be part of a geek group....
00:34 Seroster cctoide, do you know why Lis disapproves of #thegeekgroup?
00:34 cctoide Think it had something to do with not being "controlled" by GG?
00:34 BatSteve She does not disapprove of #thegeekgroup, she disapproves of IRC
00:34 cctoide Or that could have been about the idea of embedding the channel in the GG homepage
00:35 BatSteve And cctoide is correct, it's because she can't administer the IRC network.
00:35 Seroster cctoide, Embedding it (or atleast make the chatroom a part of the page) would be great....
00:35 cctoide I get the feeling for it to be official it would have to be G-rated for PC reasons, though
00:35 cctoide Which would blow.
00:35 Seroster She can be the admin of the room... Doesnt that count?
00:36 Seroster Well... Then we could have a #TheGeekGroup that is G and a #TGG that is unrated?
00:36 cctoide Yeah, but in that case the current arrangement seems better :p
00:36 Seroster Aint THAT hard to have a bot that on *text:*fuck*:#: { kick $ nick }
00:44 BatSteve Does the "quote" button on the forums work for anyone?  it's broke for me but I don't want to post if I'm the only one
00:51 mikemol BatSteve: Dunno. I copy sections and use the " button.
00:58 cctoide Man, the shitstorm around this console Minecraft knockoff is only starting and it's already hilarious
00:59 Seroster O?
00:59 Seroster Minecraft knockoff? =D
00:59 cctoide on Xbox Live Indie
00:59 cctoide here is the "trailer"
00:59 cctoide http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs12b25MhX0
00:59 Seroster Go post, fellahs!  http://thegeekgroup.org/bb/general-chat/irc-topics-today/#p43824
01:09 Obtuse and I'm back. Didn't care for theis Zomb
01:09 BatSteve Tell me of it.
01:10 Seroster DAMN the forums lag
01:10 BatSteve yeah they do
01:10 BatSteve I have no idea how Zomb works.  Details!
01:11 Obtuse Zomb confused the hell out of me too
01:11 Obtuse here's what i gathered.
01:11 Obtuse You start out a human or a zombie
01:12 Obtuse if you are a human, you are a human until a zombie touches you.
01:12 Obtuse when a zombie touches you, you die and go back to the spawn point.
01:12 Obtuse you are now a zombie
01:12 Obtuse as a zombie you hide and try to touch people with 2 hands
01:13 Obtuse then they are out.
01:13 Obtuse if you are a zombie and you get shot
01:13 Obtuse you have to count to some number (60 or 80 or any other number you so choose)
01:13 Obtuse then you continue on as a zombie
01:13 Obtuse that is what i gathered
01:13 BatSteve oh
01:14 Seroster Pretty decent summary
01:14 BatSteve You play this indoors?
01:14 BatSteve Or outdoors?
01:14 Seroster And... Has anyone ever survived the zombiopocalypse?
01:14 Obtuse tonight it was at the geek group
01:14 Obtuse I dunno
01:14 Seroster Both, but this is was probably indoors
01:14 masterofmonks Seroster: I live in Redneckia It's close enough.
01:14 Obtuse but I didn't really care for it
01:14 Obtuse i didn't have a flash light
01:14 Seroster How many players?
01:14 BatSteve Oh.  I'll admit I'm underwhelmed.  We've been doing that for years now.
01:15 Obtuse there were like 16 people tonight?
01:15 Seroster Obtuse, well, that's your problem! Both the flashlight and the lack of people.
01:15 Obtuse it may have been more. i didn't count
01:15 BatSteve Yeah.  When we play we've got a couple hundred and the game goes for a week.
01:16 Seroster Five people playing Capture the flag on a soccer field is lame.  150 split in 3 teams playing CTF on a soccer field and surroundings... Awesume.
01:16 mikemol This is the thread I've spent the most time on today: http://thegeekgroup.org/bb/pipe-dreams-and-ideas/1965-northeast-blackout-conceptual-demonstration/
01:16 BatSteve I agree with seroster
01:16 BatSteve Moar people
01:17 Obtuse but the amount of people was appropriate for the areas we had
01:17 Seroster EVRYTHING is funnier with more people. be it zomb, paintball, tag, high voltage, drinking, music, liveactionroleplaying or sex.
01:18 Obtuse but i didn't like that i tagged someone and they didn't said they shot me
01:18 Obtuse which was BS
01:18 Obtuse and i was confused. and said fuck this, i'm going home
01:18 Obtuse and yea, lack of flashlight = suck
01:19 BatSteve did you have a nerf gun?
01:19 BatSteve If yes, what kind?
01:20 Obtuse random ones
01:20 Obtuse i'm a noob to nerf guns
01:20 masterofmonks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCJzl9_HgIw
01:20 BatSteve If you had a Maverick, the way to settle that is to play Russian Roulette with the zombie
01:20 Obtuse didn't realize i had to cock the first one i had
01:21 BatSteve If you don't have a maverick (or any sort of revolver) then rock paper scissors
01:23 Seroster Why doesnt my firefox realise that the people that has posted in the forums aint all guests?
01:23 mikemol You haven't trained it properly?
01:23 mikemol Maybe there's an obedience school for incendiary foxes.
01:23 mikemol Hm.
01:23 mikemol "incendiary vixens" might have been a more fun term. :D
01:24 Seroster And BatSteve, I cant quote either
01:24 Seroster The new forums fucking sucks. Why were they changed?
01:24 BatSteve Seroster: not your firefox
01:24 mikemol Seroster: It was described as a "cascaiding failure" that would have been horridly difficult to fix.
01:24 BatSteve It's because a lot of the dataase was corrupted
01:24 Seroster Ah, I only assumed that a webpage was supposed to... work.
01:25 mikemol *cascading.
01:25 * mikemol should just stop typing.
01:25 Seroster I'll just ref the forums to this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyN9y0BEMqc
01:25 Seroster Isnt it nice when things just.... Work?
01:26 mikemol My understanding is that Moose is under a _lot_ of time pressure getting the forums cleaned up while _simultaneously_ being involved with the facilities migration.
01:26 mikemol When I was there Saturday, she was directing the loading of the truck.
01:26 Seroster Right....
01:27 BatSteve How did they get wheels to roll uphill.....
01:27 cctoide Who's the name of the guy who was doing network stuff?
01:27 mikemol A couple of them, I think.
01:27 Seroster BatSteve, there are weights in them
01:27 BatSteve oh, that explains it
01:27 cctoide the guy who was figuring out where to run ethernet cable and stuff, he showed up on the captain's logs a few times
01:27 mikemol cctoide: Hm. I was part of that. I wasn't the only one.
01:27 Seroster Balanced up, so when they are touched they get out of balance and the heavier portion of the wheel rolls forward (up)
01:28 mikemol There's whitemice, me, karmicthread and...darnit, I can't remember the nick of the other guy.
01:28 mikemol Plus a few miscellaneous folks from the GRLUG who happen to be handy.
01:28 mikemol cctoide: Have link to the logs in question?
01:28 cctoide There's a cut in that commercial because they couldn't get a long enough building/get it all right in one take
01:29 cctoide mikemol: yeah, I'll try to find him in one
01:29 Seroster Well. Running a forum that works isnt hard.
01:29 Seroster Running a forum that you have built yourself.... THAT is hard.
01:30 Seroster IMO we should settle for a freewebs forum or something, you pretty much just make the name of your forum, pick the layout, sign in and let them have a small ad on there. And it... works
01:31 Seroster You still have full control within the forum, but you can't do any hard reprogramming. But it would WORK god damn it, then she could epoxy the entire northern america without having to worry about the forums.
01:31 mikemol Seroster: It's running on Wordpress and relevant plugins, now. I think much of the remaining problems may come from conflicting plugins, shoehorned feature mapping and a lack of 1:1 feature parity between the old system and the new.
01:31 Seroster Err.
01:31 Seroster Start over.
01:31 Seroster "The old shit is fucked. Let's make a new fresh start"
01:32 Seroster Don't knock it! Thats what your founding fathers did!
01:32 mikemol Heh
01:32 mikemol They didn't start over _completely_. :)
01:32 mikemol They kept "common law", and derived heavily off of a hybrid of ancient and more recent philosophies.
01:32 Seroster That's because they had no way to remove the states from the face of the earth and put a new one there instead. They would have done that if they could thou!
01:32 BatSteve <history> in fact one of the things they made sure to do was keep all the common law and debts from the old system </history>
01:33 BatSteve got ninja'd
01:33 Seroster Eeeep
01:33 Seroster Well, VIVALAREVOLUTION!
01:33 cctoide I'm trying to find one where he goes down to the computer lab
01:33 Seroster MasterofMonks is the new geekgroup leader, he will make shit great for us! =D
01:33 mikemol I've been down to the computer lab exactly twice.
01:33 cctoide there was one recently where Chris was doing a walkthrough and the guy I'm thinking about was working on a netbook
01:33 mikemol Both the same weekend.
01:34 mikemol Hm. Wasn't me.
01:34 BatSteve all hail monks
01:34 mikemol If you find a video, I might be able to put a name to him, though.
01:34 * masterofmonks quietly picks up a spatula and holds it defensively.
01:34 BatSteve /topic all hail monks
01:34 BatSteve (grin)
01:35 Seroster We don't need pitchforks! We got SPATULAS DAMNIT!
01:40 cctoide ah, there he is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg3Phzhe79s&amp;t=0m48s
01:40 Seroster My postcount went to 0 -.-
01:40 cctoide should have looked in the main channel videos, not the logs
01:40 Seroster Heh
01:41 masterofmonks http://pcbheaven.com/blogpages/How_to_salvage_parts_from_PCBs/
01:41 cctoide also, I like this new video crew guy already
01:41 Seroster Who, cctoide?
01:42 cctoide Andre
01:42 cctoide he's in today's log
01:42 Seroster masterofmonks, I use a microtorch, a nice little piezoelectric butane thing. Heats up faster than a hot air gun
01:43 masterofmonks But with more risk.
01:43 Seroster Not unless you are an idiot
01:44 masterofmonks I will refrain from the obvious statement here.
01:45 masterofmonks There is an office coppier that I think that I can salvage from work.
01:45 Seroster Cute
01:45 Seroster Cya folks

10:05 Electronics joined #thegeekgroup
10:05 Electronics Morning Everyone
10:08 Electronics just wondering, does anyone have any experiance (or ideas) on how to fix a jammed variac. The central rotation shaft is jammed to the frame at the bearing point. I think the washers have seized up but the lock nuts either side will just not come off (probably because of the same reason). Anyone have any ideas how to free it up? I can rotate it slowly by levering it around with a metal
10:08 Electronics bar. But that's about it.
11:01 Sgt_Lemming lubricate the bejaysus out of it
11:38 masterofmonks Electronics: A small amount of PB Blaster.
11:39 masterofmonks I am not sure what it would do the insulation, but it's freaking awesome for just about anything not welded together.
11:41 Sgt_Lemming sahweet!
11:42 Sgt_Lemming local machine tool supply plus just gave us a nearly 25% discount on a Lathe and associated goodies.
11:42 masterofmonks Sgt_Lemming: Total cost?
11:43 Electronics PB Blaster?
11:47 masterofmonks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2R8b-6WfAY
11:50 masterofmonks And failing that, you can apply a torch.
11:50 masterofmonks Though you better get that sucker off before it cools or it will be sweated together.
11:52 Sgt_Lemming $1500, RRP would be $1983.30

14:20 mikemol An old xeon PC, if it'll fit in the car. A weird power strip with individually-switchable outlets.
14:20 mikemol Some headphones. A bunch of wallwarts.
14:20 mikemol a few hundred square feet of dropcloth.
14:21 mikemol Some PSUs which I'm not sure whether or not they work.
14:21 mikemol An old IDE hard drive.
14:21 mikemol A bunch of PS3-via-USB wireless controllers.
14:22 mikemol A 10m HDMI cable. An HDMI balancer. An HDMI repeater thing.

15:20 mikemol heh.
15:22 wannabe1987 hey...if i'm designing something to hang around the neighborhood, a flyer...is it spelled flyer or flier?
15:24 wannabe1987 nvm google figured it out for me...its flyer
15:24 mikemol flier
15:24 wannabe1987 nope
15:24 mikemol Huh
15:24 wannabe1987 well, its both, i guess...but the first definition for flier is: person who travles by air
15:25 wannabe1987 and first definition for flyer is: circulare: an advertisement intended for wide disribution

18:16 tesla4d So, the argument I mentioned yesterday between Paul and the soldier's wife isn't over yet, and now the soldier in question has gotten involved.
18:17 tesla4d Not that anybody else minds, but I've been watching with bemusement.
18:18 tesla4d Actually, that reminds me.
18:18 tesla4d We've been talking, and it seems like something should be done about politics of the budget.
18:19 tesla4d So Mike and I have come up with something. The only way to make a law without getting congress involved is for the states to ratify a constitutional amendment...
18:20 tesla4d So, I'm going to try to start a movement to push for an amendment witholding pay for members of congress if they don't pass a budget before the budget deadline.
18:22 tesla4d They really shouldn't be dicking around with politics to the extent that the government is in danger of shutting down. That's pretty much their ENTIRE job. So, if they don't pass a budget, they don't get paid. I'm thinking three months, Mike says a year.
18:22 tesla4d And we could actually make it happen, if enough people wanted it.

20:01 tesla4d That reminds me of my calculus instructor.
20:03 tesla4d When he went over the derivative rule for quotients, he started by saying "I'm going to write this on the board, and you should write it down, too, but don't try to memorize it the way it's written down, symbol by symbol. Nobody memorizes Hamlet's soliloquy by memorizing the letters, do they?"
20:05 tesla4d Then he turned to the board and as he was writing, he shouted "TEE OH SPACE BEE EE SPACE OH ARR SPACE ENN OH TEE SPACE TEE OH SPACE BEE EE!"

22:37 Obtuse now take it out into the woods and turn it into a generatore
22:37 Obtuse using a stream
22:37 Obtuse as the power generator
22:42 Rahlon left #thegeekgroup
22:52 Seroster Lol ob
22:52 Obtuse have you seen that video?
22:52 Obtuse its real man
22:52 Obtuse wait, are you a man?
22:53 Seroster It is designed in such a way that the motor creates a negative preassure that sucks in the water into a tank. The actual water never comes in contact with the motor
22:53 Seroster Maybe you can run a vacuum motor backwards to make steam... For about three days before it is simply a pile of rust
22:54 Seroster Hot water kinda fucks stuff utp
22:55 Obtuse now i gotta look up this hackaday entry
22:55 Seroster lol
22:56 Obtuse http://hackaday.com/2010/08/27/hydropower-generator/

22:57 Obtuse my bad
23:04 Seroster tsk
23:05 Seroster Absolutely not the same model
23:05 Seroster But it COULD be made with a $10 impeller for a washing machine
23:06 Seroster And he has a DC alternator, not an AC motor =P
