00:01 KB3NZQ yep there is lightning
00:01 KB3NZQ what i'm saying is i don't have any attennas up now
00:02 SparkyStudio What i meant was that if you did have them up, you would have them protected
00:02 KB3NZQ i had a 15 foot attenna for 144-148 MHz untill dad ruined all the coax for it that fed it to my house
00:03 SparkyStudio That sucks

00:10 Seroster Does gasoline soaked rags pose the same difficultys as turpentine soaked ones?
00:11 SparkyStudio As in being flammable ? yes
00:11 Seroster Ponko92, I have no idea what BatSteve uses to code BotSteve, but the mIRC coding system is way easier.
00:11 Seroster ....As in spontaneus combustion
00:11 Ponko92 hes telling me now
00:12 SparkyStudio Gasoline soaked rags give off vapour, if it gets hot enough, yes it could ignite,
00:12 Seroster You don't say.
00:13 Ponko92 no need for sarcasm
00:13 Seroster What I mean is 'is there a large threat of spontaneous ignition dealing with gasoline soaked fabrics?'
00:14 SparkyStudio flash point of gasoline is 43C, autoignition point it 246C
00:16 Seroster 43c?
00:16 Seroster I think you got that one mixed up
00:16 SparkyStudio, that's what it says, i was surprised too

00:29 Cprossu a wiki=the wiki
00:29 DruidicRifleman .w chris boden
00:29 BotSteve "Chris Boden (born October 13, 1973 in Wolverhampton, England) was an English professional footballer." -

00:31 wannabe1987 :)
00:31 SparkyStudio We rewired with a new controller and sensor
00:31 DruidicRifleman i thought Dbdns we're the scale of how much my ears we're bleeding?
00:31 BatSteve I like jumpstep better than dubstep
00:32 Fulsy When Is Chris doing a video on that breadmaker motor?
00:32 Hackbat Fun fact, Fire wire was inspired by the old Gameboy link cable connector
00:32 Cprossu SparkyStudio: getting everything calibrated correctly after one blows sucks though. and that's if you can even get the part
00:32 BatSteve oops
00:32 BatSteve sorry
00:32 cctoide there's some interesting sounds, but it sounds trashy sometimes
00:32 BatSteve Jumpstyle

00:35 SparkyStudio That's a cool idea :)
00:35 eightbitbrad LOL
00:35 Hydroelectric Haha.
00:35 eightbitbrad I bet the rollers require less tacos, too
00:36 maglinvinn nifty
00:36 SparkyStudio We also used 'wire pulling lubricant'

00:39 eightbitbrad damn
00:40 Fulsy Is that outdoor camera working?
00:40 Fulsy the one with the windshield wiper?
00:40 eightbitbrad LOL give us a clock tonight!
00:40 eightbitbrad Fulsy: no
00:40 cctoide Ah, the security outsourcing program
00:40 Fulsy oh
00:40 eightbitbrad It needs mounted
00:40 eightbitbrad they need a tower for it first
00:40 SparkyStudio The main thing with security cameras is the lens, needs good quality lenses.
00:40 Fulsy I lol'd at the fact that it was just a camcorder
00:41 compwiz878 yeah me to
00:41 compwiz878 lol
00:41 cctoide wouldn't they be better off with real cheap walkie talkies and headsets for the camera crew?
00:41 cctoide seems easier than having a computer by each camera operator
00:42 wannabe1987 why is it rainy out?  why is the sky crying/depressed?  why can it not be sunny for once, help out the depressed folk!
00:42 eightbitbrad cctoide: I think the goal is everyone on the same channel and potential to feed into the live stream.
00:42 cctoide plus they'd have to use PTT for mumble since the stage would be way too noisy for voice activation
00:42 Fulsy Does the lab have an intercom?
00:42 eightbitbrad cctoide: They've be PTTing with headsets I bet too
00:42 BatSteve wannabe1987: the sky's not crying, it's helping the flowers grow
00:43 cctoide oh god, ground vibrations
00:43 SparkyStudio wannabe1987, it's been sunny in Wales for the last few days :D
00:43 cctoide floor rather
00:43 wannabe1987 i don't care what its doing...i want sun!  sun is needed to grow flowers too
00:43 wannabe1987 wales never has :P
00:43 maglinvinn tggcory you there/
00:43 wannabe1987 well, england doesn't :P
00:43 cctoide eightbitbrad: yeah, I just don't see where they're going to put computers for the camera people
00:43 tggcory Yes!
00:43 SparkyStudio Rain in summer is called 'wet sunshine'
00:43 cctoide even if it's like an Eee or something
00:44 maglinvinn tell captain i talked to Paul.  i'm going to ride in with paul when he comes to GR from now on
00:44 maglinvinn and make at least one trip out there a month otherwise
00:44 maglinvinn that should keep the gas problem to a minimum
00:44 maglinvinn :)
00:44 eightbitbrad cctoide: Like I said, I think they eventually want to feed the chatter into the stream
00:44 * wannabe1987 is making pancakes for dinner
00:44 eightbitbrad mm I want some
00:45 wannabe1987 come on over
00:45 ubergoober left #thegeekgroup
00:45 BatSteve I already made pancakes
00:45 BatSteve they were amazing
00:45 maglinvinn its not exactly what Chris and i talked about, but its close :)
00:45 tggcory Did you just hear all that, Dan?
00:45 maglinvinn fraid not
00:45 BatSteve I hope yours are as good as mine
00:45 maglinvinn captain isn't coming through the best
00:45 maglinvinn he's behind the counter...  heh
00:45 tggcory Basically, see if Paul or DART can subsidise the gas for you
00:46 * Hydroelectric now wants pancakes.
00:46 compwiz878 tell boden to raise the boden levels
00:46 compwiz878 lol
00:46 BatSteve SLIGHTLY
00:46 BatSteve VERY SLIGHTLY
00:46 wannabe1987 batsteve - pancakes?  better...probably
00:46 cctoide adjust Chris' knob?
00:46 compwiz878 lol steve
00:46 Fulsy LOL
00:46 wannabe1987 @ hydroelectric - where do you live?
00:46 Ponko92 wow cctoide inappropriate
00:46 maglinvinn right, thats what i talked to him about, but i really couldn't get a response from paul about ~that~ idea.  meanwhile, how in the seven lower hells would i get dart to give me any money for anything?  lol.
00:46 wannabe1987 lol
00:46 Hydroelectric wannabe1987 In Australia.
00:46 wannabe1987 start swimming
00:47 Ponko92 lol
00:47 cctoide thatsthejoke
00:47 compwiz878 or start rowing the boat lol
00:47 maglinvinn to be honest, paul kinda sidestepped my question, regarding 'subsidization'
00:47 Fulsy Cory wh-oh nvm that was the drill
00:47 maglinvinn lol.
00:47 maglinvinn are they drilling through to MDH, or ?
00:48 injektion joined #thegeekgroup
00:48 cctoide think it's a breaker box in the space just under the roof
00:48 cctoide for power
00:48 SparkyStudio They are running conduit along the back wall
00:49 SparkyStudio The feed is the other side of Cory's desk
00:49 DruidicRifleman the studio
00:49 Fulsy Am I immature for thinking that the drill sounds like someone breaking wind?
00:49 SparkyStudio the far wall
00:49 compwiz878 grr the drill level
00:49 cctoide sigh, GFWL is the most broken thing ever
00:49 compwiz878 lmao
00:50 BatSteve Fulsy: the fact that you recognize it means you're probably not
00:50 Fulsy oh
00:50 beep_ left #thegeekgroup
00:50 BatSteve So you're good
00:50 BatSteve (grin)
00:50 compwiz878 fulsy the drill is called a hammer drill
00:50 Fulsy GFWL? What game are you playing that has it?
00:50 cctoide red faction: guerrilla
00:50 Fulsy oh yes
00:50 Fulsy love that game
00:51 DruidicRifleman maglinvin whats the most i should pay for 1075
00:51 Fulsy but the PC port SUCKS
00:51 Fulsy how far are you?
00:51 cctoide indeed
00:51 DruidicRifleman since no one local stocks it
00:51 cctoide I just did the mission for the badlands
00:51 Fulsy oh
00:51 Fulsy I beat the game, but I had a trainer because I just wanted to complete everything to have an EDF-free experiance
00:52 cctoide yeah, they're really annoying
00:52 cctoide it just seems to disgorge a neverending stream of mooks on you
00:52 Fulsy if you pass gas out in the middle of badlands, a tank will show up
00:52 cctoide considered getting a trainer because I kept getting swarmed
00:52 cctoide but in a way it's more satisfying to take a dumper truck and plow through their shit instead of bothering with on foot combat
00:53 Fulsy the thing that REALLY pisses me off is that the community is so nonexistant
00:53 Fulsy you would think a game like this has SOME community support to make it a bit better
00:53 Fulsy but nope
00:53 cctoide maybe it's too locked down?
00:53 Fulsy Kinda
00:54 cctoide would have thought at least some amateur game artist would have tried to make some destructible buildings
00:54 Fulsy Do you have the steam version or the box version
00:54 Ponko92 hmmmm
00:54 Ponko92 how come the stream sound REALLY quiet
00:54 cctoide box version, I think
00:54 Fulsy oh
00:54 Fulsy I got mine off steam
00:55 Fulsy I really WISH it was entirely steam based
00:55 Fulsy not GFWL
00:55 cctoide I guess it didn't get mod tools either
00:55 Fulsy Microsoft, keep making your operating systems. And maybe your consoles.
00:55 Fulsy PLEASE
00:56 cctoide it does have the typical floaty gunplay of a badly ported 3rd person shooter...
00:56 cctoide much like Just Cause 2
00:56 Fulsy yea
00:56 Fulsy Or Mercs 2
00:56 wannabe1987 yay,...none of the yolks cracked :D
00:56 Fulsy the destruction is the only redeeming part of this
00:56 BatSteve Hey, Just Cause 2 was a masterpiece of gaming.  On par with Deus Ex and Half-Life
00:57 Fulsy I have the reconstructor mod for RFG
00:57 BatSteve In fact it was the best game ever, of all time
00:57 Fulsy but using it makes the game shit itself and crash
00:57 BatSteve Playing it cures cancer and brings kittens back to life
00:57 BatSteve (grin)
00:57 wannabe1987 ...
00:57 cctoide I'm playing through Deus Ex
00:57 Fulsy at least on the big buildings in Oasis and Eos
00:57 wannabe1987 who killed the kittens in thefirst place, batsteve?
00:58 wannabe1987 2.25 + 2.25 = 4.5, right?
00:59 BatSteve correct
00:59 cctoide ... y-yes, I hope
00:59 wannabe1987 thanks.  my math sucks, and i'm doubling food

02:39 compwiz878 kool
02:39 Ponko92 good :)
02:39 Ponko92 steve didn't seem eager as you were
02:39 Cprossu I enjoy it too, just as long as it's not snow (good thing I live in Phx, AZ)

02:41 arruid i love storms and snow but not when i have to drive in either
02:41 * wannabe1987 is ticked off
02:41 compwiz878 why ticked off ?
02:41 arruid what's wrong wannabe?
02:41 Ponko92 i've driven in snow in a sports car
02:41 compwiz878 lol
02:41 wannabe1987 cuz...they went out to eat and i made them dinner and now its gonna go to waste cuz noone eats leftovers

02:43 CaptainBoden Are you uploading tonight?
02:43 Ponko92 yep i remember driving in a storm with my fiancee
02:43 tggcory Yes
02:43 Ponko92 what fun
02:44 CaptainBoden I drive in snow in a sportscar all winter ;)
02:44 Ponko92 isn't just the best
02:44 Ponko92 isn't it just the best*
02:44 Ponko92 you have an MR2 right?
02:44 CaptainBoden Oddly, the two best vehicles I've ever had for handlign snow were both not anywhere NEAR what you'd think offhand.
02:45 Obtuse_lappy Subaru Outback will always be my favorite for snow
02:45 Ponko92 the mediocre ones sometimes
02:45 CaptainBoden My Mazda MX3 is magnificent (and my winter car), and A Honda CRX-Si was awesome. Handled great.
02:45 Cprossu MR2's are nice cars, we had an '85 with a V6 transplant.. I never got to drive it =(
02:45 CaptainBoden My Mazda corners like it's on rails, I love it.
02:46 Obtuse_lappy what year did they make the MX3?
02:46 CaptainBoden If anyone ever gets me an Autozam AZ-1 they will be my hero.
02:46 eightbitbrad I wanna powerslide my Magnum around in the snow.
02:46 CaptainBoden Mine is a 93 I think
02:46 arruid my mazda is dying o__o
02:46 eightbitbrad but..  Atlanta hardly gets any snow.
02:46 Ponko92 i had rebuilt an entire Porsche 959 never got to drive it on a curcuit but good god it was fun to gun it up the A1 (M)
02:47 Hackbat
02:47 Hackbat looks like something you'd drive :D
02:47 CaptainBoden I think it's neat.
02:47 CaptainBoden Gullwing doors.
02:48 Ponko92 DeLorean XD
02:48 CaptainBoden I'd rather have an AZ-1, though I'm pretty experienced with the DMC-12
02:48 Ponko92 yeah but who wouldn't want a DMC-12
02:49 Ponko92 with a certain Dr. ELB mods
02:49 Cprossu Someone who doesn't want electrical problems
02:49 CaptainBoden GAH no
02:49 Cprossu I don't want to ever do a dmc again after what I went through

02:50 compwiz878 lol ponko
02:51 Ponko92 hey thats why i'd have one

02:55 Ponko92 whats it need doing to it
02:55 Cprossu do you still have the street sweeper?
02:55 CaptainBoden no, we sold it to pay on taxes.
02:55 Cprossu pity

04:00 Cprossu xD
04:00 Fulsy Glados is chell's father
04:00 Topic for #thegeekgroup is now Lab's Live Stream: | Channel log: | Cprossu finished portal 2! | ---*_ This channel is R rated _*---
04:00 Fulsy GOD DAMNIT
04:01 BatSteve Snape kills GLaDOS
04:01 Cprossu you know photoninduction should make that inverter do something
04:01 Toastdude GlaDOS is what i named my computer...... Is that weird?
04:02 tesla4d No, just predictable and lame.
04:02 Fulsy I named mine HAL 9050
04:02 Cprossu only if it's sentient
04:02 Toastdude I named my iPod Hal-9000....
04:02 Fulsy because I like to go 50 versions beyond
04:02 Coderjoe you mean like fry it with one of his other HV systems?
04:02 Cprossu All of mine are named to their function
04:03 Cprossu sadly
04:03 Cprossu I can't come up with good names
04:03 Toastdude Yeah, and I don't want it to constantly sing "Daisy".....
04:03 Cprossu my servers are named --unit00 through --unit03
04:03 Fulsy ha
04:03 Fulsy It sings "Daisy" when running out of battery
04:03 Coderjoe Cprossu: eva?
04:03 Cprossu nope
04:03 Cprossu good try though
04:04 Toastdude I should set that as a Critical battery sound.....
04:04 Cprossu You know
04:04 * wannabe1987 loves storms
04:04 Cprossu I've got an APC that I could do that to
04:04 wannabe1987 just not SN*W storms
04:04 Cprossu since it already needs a new batt
04:04 Cprossu I could get one of those greeting cards with daisy on it
04:04 Cprossu just put it in place of the buzzer if the voltages aren't too off
04:04 Toastdude Lol, that would be funny...
04:05 Cprossu and it would be less irritating than the standard one too
04:05 Cprossu I still haven't decided if I am going the deep cycle route on that one though
04:05 Toastdude Yeah. As a startup thing i should put the end of 2010.....
04:05 Cprossu considering the standard batteries are freaking $45 a pop
04:06 Toastdude \That would be awesome...
04:07 Cprossu Toastdude: Truthfully toast isn't my favorite...;feature=related
04:07 Cprossu probably if I had to pick one, it'd be tuna of opportunity

05:00 BotSteve BatSteve: I'll pass that on when eightbitbrad is around.
05:03 BatSteve We'll have random greets implemented soon.
05:04 CSMonster cool
05:04 BatSteve Then all we need is some creative people in the channel ::cough:: to start thinking of clever geeky greets.
05:04 wannabe1987 ummmm
05:04 wannabe1987 y?
05:05 wannabe1987 the bot on the other channel would greet us but it was annoying
05:05 Thermoelectric As you already have the recipients of some of those greets lined up.
05:05 BatSteve really?
05:05 BatSteve wannabe1987: tell me of this
05:05 wannabe1987 tell you what?
05:06 BatSteve why was it annoying?
05:06 BatSteve and what would it say?
05:06 wannabe1987 alyssa (bot) would ssay "welcome to the channel, we have !drinks !food !this !that and !the other (id on't remember what else)"
05:07 wannabe1987 and if you typed !drinks it'd say what drinks we have "avail"
05:07 wannabe1987 nifty
05:07 wannabe1987 it was annoying cuz it interupted convo flow...
05:08 BatSteve hm
05:08 BatSteve good call
05:08 BatSteve we'll have to figure out rate limiting then
05:08 BatSteve so that he only talks when it's a dead channel
05:09 wannabe1987 dead?
05:09 Thermoelectric Maybe also stop him from greeting someone who's connection is 'going up and down like a $2 hooker'.
05:09 wannabe1987 ?
05:10 BatSteve when it's a less-active channel, then
05:10 BatSteve Thermoelectric: nice
05:10 BatSteve yeah I'll put that in too
05:10 Thermoelectric Pretty sure Lemming said something along the lines of that...
05:11 wannabe1987 o ok

05:13 BatSteve BotSteve: tell Seroster he'll have to do without a greeting for a bit, until I can get the database updated.
05:13 BotSteve BatSteve: I'll pass that on when Seroster is around.
05:13 BatSteve wannabe1987: when do you sleep?
05:13 wannabe1987 3a-10a.  i get 7 hours :D

06:10 Yaotzin people who use PEMDAS incorrectly make me :(
06:12 wannabe1987 PEMDAS?
06:12 wannabe1987
06:12 Yaotzin ()^*/+-
06:12 wannabe1987 o.  math stuff
06:12 Yaotzin Order of operations ma'am
06:13 wannabe1987 yeah, math stuff
06:13 Yaotzin yeah
06:13 wannabe1987 parenthasis, multiply, divide, add subtract, whats E?
06:13 Yaotzin exponents
06:13 wannabe1987 ooo
06:13 wannabe1987 yes the carrot
06:13 Yaotzin like 2^8
06:14 wannabe1987 16?
06:14 wannabe1987 18?
06:14 wannabe1987 idon't know
06:14 Yaotzin 256
06:14 Yaotzin actually
06:14 wannabe1987 see?
06:14 wannabe1987 i don't know
06:14 Yaotzin 2 to the power of 8 is the same as 2*2*2*2*2*2*2*2
06:14 LeadHead1 2 to the 8th power
06:15 wannabe1987 i knwo
06:15 wannabe1987 i messed up
06:15 wannabe1987 this is why my ssiter is getting a math degree, not me
06:15 Yaotzin anyway I was going to say, if you ever want to know the maximum value for a string of binary
06:15 Yaotzin 2^x-1
06:15 Yaotzin where x = bits
06:15 Yaotzin so for 8 bits your maximum value is 255
06:16 Yaotzin 2^8-1
06:16 Yaotzin Anyway. I see people do like 4-1+5 and they end up with -2
06:17 Yaotzin and I cry
06:17 wannabe1987 :(
06:17 Yaotzin :(

06:21 Yaotzin like, alright wannabe1987, 4+3*2-1 = ?
06:22 LeadHead1 9
06:22 wannabe1987 3*2 = 6, 6+4 = 10, -1 =9
06:22 wannabe1987 i'm working on it!  shhhhh
06:22 wannabe1987 i'm slow...i had to think
06:22 Yaotzin See, you're fine.
06:23 Thermoelectric I hate BenQ.
06:23 Yaotzin BenQ?
06:23 Thermoelectric .g BenQ
06:23 NeWtoz OH NO YOU DIDN'T
06:23 BotSteve Thermoelectric:
06:24 * NeWtoz has a BenQ projector
06:24 Yaotzin oh
06:24 Yaotzin Could of just said a projector
06:24 Thermoelectric Well both of the monitors I've tried to fix, containing their boards, have 1), blown the same fuse, and 2) killed an inverter.
06:24 Thermoelectric They don't just do projectors.
06:25 Yaotzin That's all I saw on the front page of their website
06:25 Yaotzin which is about as far as i dug
06:25 NeWtoz yeah
06:25 Yaotzin I wouldn't mind having a projector if I could get one with a good response times
06:25 Yaotzin time*
06:25 wannabe1987 yaotzin...what'd u have for food?
06:26 Yaotzin wannabe1987: Shrimp Alfredo yesterday, homemade macaroni and cheese with smoked sausage and sweet corn tonight. I was lazy.
06:26 Cprossu Yaotzin: I wouldn't mind projectors as long as I get at least 1280x1024 and LED lighting
06:27 Yaotzin just something I could make in less than an hour
06:27 wannabe1987 mac'n'cheese, homemade, is NOT lazy...lazy is from the box :P
06:27 Cprossu once that happens I'll run like 5 of them
06:27 Cprossu on a piece of frosted plexi probably
06:27 Thermoelectric LED lighting hasn't evolved enough to be used widely in projectors... Has it?
06:27 Cprossu yeah it has
06:27 Cprossu and casio has had luck with a laser/led hybrid
06:27 LeadHead1 Casio has a hybrid laser/LED projector
06:27 LeadHead1 lol.
06:27 Thermoelectric Hmm.
06:27 Cprossu but I still dislike it's red reproduction
06:27 Thermoelectric I wonder how it's hybrid...
06:28 Cprossu green
06:28 Cprossu iirc
06:28 Yaotzin wannabe1987: :p, hey I won't turn down the box but eh
06:28 Thermoelectric Ahh/
06:28 Yaotzin I have bags of pasta in my pantry
06:28 wannabe1987 kraft only tho!
06:28 LeadHead1 It uses LEDs for one color
06:28 LeadHead1 while two of the other colors are derived via laser
06:28 Yaotzin I like to keep a well stocked pantry
06:28 Cprossu I thought red was LED too though
06:28 wannabe1987 too
06:28 Cprossu it's got one wacky prism setup too
06:28 wannabe1987 i have an armoir, tho, thats my  food space...
06:28 LeadHead1 Ask Photon939 if hes on
06:29 Cprossu still I got one out to see if it answered what I wanted
06:29 Yaotzin I have a pretty small kitchen in this apartment, so space is a premium
06:29 LeadHead1 hes ripped a lot of them apart
06:29 Cprossu it didn't
06:29 wannabe1987 my housemate has the cabinets and he uses them for shit stuff thats like hamburger helper or somthing
06:29 wannabe1987 yeah...kithcnes...
06:29 Yaotzin but I always have at least two meals sitting in the pantry
06:29 Yaotzin if not three
06:29 wannabe1987 i need i can do lasagna
06:29 Cprossu as far as I know theough
06:29 Cprossu *though
06:29 Cprossu there are purely LED projectors now
06:29 Cprossu that hit 100 lumens
06:29 LeadHead1 100 whole lumens
06:29 LeadHead1 my goodness!
06:29 Cprossu the casio is like 600 I think
06:29 Cprossu 100 is better than 20
06:30 LeadHead1 Not better than 600
06:30 Cprossu except the just doesn't look right
06:30 Cprossu and it's DLP to boot
06:30 Cprossu I think
06:30 Thermoelectric I think that's moreso on the LCD side of things, as LED's still aren't as bright as the 400W MH lamps used in some projectors.
06:30 Yaotzin mmm, ricotta, parm, mozerella, lasagna noodles, spiced sausage
06:30 Yaotzin beef
06:30 Yaotzin tomato sauce
06:30 kris_ joined #thegeekgroup
06:30 Yaotzin flat leaf parsley
06:30 Thermoelectric Mercury
06:30 wannabe1987 no...just mozz, not ricotta
06:30 wannabe1987 :P
06:30 LeadHead1 It uses Red LEDs
06:30 Cprossu if I am running 5 projectors, lamp replacement becomes a scary proposition to me
06:30 LeadHead1 blue and green are derived via laser
06:31 wannabe1987 i cannot offord much ricotta
06:31 Yaotzin No ricotta?
06:31 LeadHead1 in those casios
06:31 Yaotzin ah
06:31 kris_ whats happening with the live feed?
06:31 kris_ is now known as Guest43771
06:31 Yaotzin yeah stuff is pricy
06:31 wannabe1987 no clue
06:31 wannabe1987 .topic
06:31 Thermoelectric Which is why you mod the projector to accept a much cheaper lamp.
06:31 Cprossu my tv set actually has an induction lamp in it
06:31 Cprossu but
06:31 Cprossu they were flawed
06:31 Cprossu sadly
06:31 Cprossu (Luxim Lifi 4000)
06:32 Cprossu I'm on my second set that I managed to procure because all in all, it looks freaking great and is a solid set minus the light source
06:32 Cprossu (but they will replace 2 of them that last ~a year so it's worth it to me)
06:33 Cprossu core charge on those fucking bulbs would be $1500 if I could order one
06:33 CSMonster\
06:33 Cprossu and aren't a 'user servicable' part
06:33 LeadHead1 Should just stick with plasma
06:33 wannabe1987 CSMonster - i already posted that :P
06:33 Cprossu the drive electronics are what let it down
06:33 Guest43771 they should put something like  i/c chips on thumper
06:33 CSMonster did you?
06:33 wannabe1987 yep
06:33 Cprossu as in the RF portion
06:33 CSMonster i've been away.
06:34 wannabe1987 5 different places :P
06:34 Cprossu I've still got one bulb I took apart, I should snap some pics of it
06:34 CSMonster lol i saw it on facebook
06:34 Cprossu
06:34 Cprossu but it's got a induction feedback circuit in it
06:34 CSMonster i'm confused though.  normally he doesn't update til midnight pacific.  it's not midnight pacific time yet.  unless my clock is set wrong, or i'm more insane than i thought i am
06:34 Guest43771 left #thegeekgroup
06:34 wannabe1987 no, not midnight by you yet
06:35 Cprossu
06:35 wannabe1987 i'm ok w/ it being earlY :D
06:35 Yaotzin It's 11:35 PST
06:35 LeadHead1 xkcd is usually updated around midnight EST...
06:35 LeadHead1 EDT
06:35 Cprossu ^ that's the capsule.. no electrodes and ~4k raw lumens
06:35 CSMonster early xkcd is early
06:35 LeadHead1 Ontime here...
06:35 CSMonster hmm.
06:35 wannabe1987 lol
06:35 Cprossu
06:36 CSMonster oh wait, i'm thinking of sam and fuzzy.  that's the one that always updates right at midnight pacific
06:36 Cprossu ^ check it out
06:36 Cprossu much neater than your typical mercury lamp
06:39 wannabe1987 lol
06:40 Cprossu but the feedback circuit used custom chips and used shitty thermal tape to boot
06:40 Cprossu but point is that the 'lamp part' is ok, the radio ciruit is not
06:40 Cprossu oh also it runs off of 48VDC
06:40 Cprossu which I thought was cool
06:41 wannabe1987 bout portal2: EPICGAMEOMYGAWD.  i love myfriends :D
06:42 Yaotzin I'm trying to talk my cousin into getting portal 2 on psn
06:42 Cprossu portal 2 was awesome
06:42 Yaotzin so I can get it
06:42 wannabe1987 he got it for his computer
06:42 Yaotzin Cause i don't want to pay retail for it
06:43 Cprossu well I'm off
06:43 Cprossu later all
06:44 wannabe1987 NIGHT@
06:44 wannabe1987 !*
06:45 Yaotzin later
06:45 Yaotzin Also damn, Portal 2 isn't on PSN

07:39 Hackbat Either my install was unstable or Valve made some sorta killswitch in portal two
07:39 Hackbat cause it closed on me twice
07:39 Hackbat and then I uninstalled it
07:40 Thermoelectric Stop breaking things. :P
07:42 Hackbat I'm like...halfway through I think
07:42 Hackbat maybe
07:43 Hackbat I have noidea
07:43 Hackbat so much has happened
07:44 Thermoelectric Portal has a meaning? I don't see much point behind shooting a portal to go to...
07:45 Hackbat who said anything aboutmeaning?
07:46 Thermoelectric Well I was the one to mention it... :P
07:46 Thermoelectric It just seems sortof pointless...

08:18 Thermoelectric The former.
08:18 HoeDown hmm. we should fix this, yes?
08:18 Thermoelectric Sure.
08:19 HoeDown Anything pressing in mind that you'd like to share?
08:19 Thermoelectric Not really at the moment, just wishing I could build a big Stirling engine or a steam turbine. :/
08:20 HoeDown oh, dear god, i understand. Big fan of all sorts of mechanical things, but Stirling engines are just something else.
08:21 Thermoelectric Aren't they just?
08:21 Thermoelectric They're so simple in principle, but the smallest bit of friction could stop one from running.

10:00 Thermoelectric Yeah, I knew it was you that said that. :)
10:00 Sgt_Lemming lol
10:00 Sgt_Lemming it's an apt description :-P
10:01 Thermoelectric It probably is, but considering I've never seen a $2 hooker, I can't say for sure. :P
10:01 Sgt_Lemming lol
10:01 Sgt_Lemming I used to live under a brothel, many, many, many years ago :-P
10:02 Thermoelectric Mmm
10:02 Sgt_Lemming not sure what their prices were, but judging from what the girls looked like, it can't have been much
10:02 Thermoelectric Should've asked. :P
10:02 Sgt_Lemming no thanks
10:03 Sgt_Lemming the guy who ran it was dodgy as a mofo, and rather weird
10:04 Thermoelectric Ah wel.
10:04 Thermoelectric well*
10:04 Sgt_Lemming I have a funny story from living there, but it requires a lot of typing, and CBFATM
10:05 Thermoelectric No problem.
10:06 Sgt_Lemming suffice to say, I saw one of the girls who worked there naked, and it was not a pretty sight
10:06 Sgt_Lemming but I was so tired my brain just locked up
10:06 Thermoelectric :S
10:08 Sgt_Lemming I'd been awake about 40 hours at that stage, and worked 19 of those hours
10:08 Thermoelectric What were you working as at that stage?
10:08 Sgt_Lemming contract technician for Sapphire Technologies
10:09 Thermoelectric Sounds interesting.
10:09 Sgt_Lemming it kinda was, paid well, but odd ODD hours
10:09 Thermoelectric Such as?
10:10 Sgt_Lemming 31 hours in two days
10:10 Thermoelectric O_o
10:10 Sgt_Lemming yeah

10:31 Sgt_Lemming jjust make an RTG
10:32 Thermoelectric In a residential neighbourhood? :/
10:32 Sgt_Lemming lol
10:32 Thermoelectric You are most helpful (yes, that was infact sarcasm)
10:32 Sgt_Lemming lol
10:32 Sgt_Lemming we fire a quite lethal air cannon in a residential area :-P
10:33 Thermoelectric Air =/= nuclear reactoy
10:33 Thermoelectric reactor*
10:33 Sgt_Lemming RTG != nuclear reactor
10:33 Thermoelectric .wiki RTG
10:33 BotSteve "Radioisotope thermoelectric generator" -
10:33 Thermoelectric Damnit.
10:34 Thermoelectric .g RTG
10:34 BotSteve Thermoelectric:
10:34 Thermoelectric Oh stuff it.
10:34 * Sgt_Lemming smacks Thermoelectric with the encyclopedia Clueponica
10:34 Thermoelectric "A radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG, RITEG) is a nuclear reactor technology electrical generator that obtains its power from radioactive decay."
10:34 Thermoelectric Nuclear reactor technology.
10:34 Sgt_Lemming bah
10:35 Sgt_Lemming I disagree
10:35 Sgt_Lemming it doesn't "react" it decays
10:35 Hydroelectric It's only nuclear technology, what's the worst that could happen?
10:35 Sgt_Lemming it goes super critical
10:36 Sgt_Lemming i.e. nuclear explosion
10:36 Hydroelectric Eh.
10:36 Hydroelectric That would be quite interesting.
10:36 Thermoelectric You are right about it only decaying, it's just not something suited for a residential neighbourhood for that exact reason.
10:36 Hydroelectric Which is?
10:37 Sgt_Lemming
10:37 Thermoelectric Though, the array of thermocouples may be a way to change heat to electricity.
10:38 Sgt_Lemming it's horrendously inefficient
10:38 Hydroelectric @Thermoelectric What is the desired purpose?
10:38 Sgt_Lemming and requires massive temperature differentials between hot and cold sides
10:38 Thermoelectric Thought it may have been.
10:40 Hydroelectric Finally I got samba to show folders and files.

11:17 pegasus wtf
11:18 pegasus so it's a fusor like tgg has
11:19 * Thermoelectric wishes the damn link wanted to work.
11:19 Thermoelectric There it is.
11:19 pegasus -- just in case
11:20 Thermoelectric Grr, the Google link to it just redirects me to the homepage.
11:20 Thermoelectric Oh yeah, seen that one before.
11:22 pegasus apparently just a star-in-a-jar like tgg has
11:23 Thermoelectric Except that one does run at the voltages and currents required to generate neutrons (I think it's neutrons?)
11:23 SparkyProjects 2.The chamber is filled with deuterium and jolted with about 45,000 volts of electricity
11:24 pegasus the point i'm trying to make is that i don't think it actually produces power
11:24 pegasus which soundly disqualifies it from the realm of "nuclear reactor" in my book.
11:24 pegasus plenty impressive enough to do fusion at all, but still
11:25 SparkyProjects If there's a nuclear reaction it's a reactor., but not necessarlily nuclear power
11:25 pegasus when i think reaction i think chain reaction
11:26 pegasus when the action is smashing atoms together until they fuse, which is the reaction, it's not really a reactor in my book
11:26 pegasus it's a fusor
11:26 pegasus you're welcome to have a different perspective on it
11:28 Thermoelectric I take it the power they're supposed to be able to generate would be in the form of neutrons it 'emits'?
11:28 pegasus dictionary "nuclear reactor" -> see "reactor". "reactor" definition 4, "nuclear pile, chain reactor, an apparatus in which a nuclear-fission chain reaction  can be initiated, sustained, and controlled, for generating heat or producing useful radiation."
11:28 pegasus dictionary agrees.
11:28 pegasus thermo: it turns deuterium into helium
11:29 pegasus whether or not that's useful is an academic matter, since i have no use for it
11:30 pegasus neat, though, like i said
11:33 pegasus
11:33 Thermoelectric Ah.

11:55 Thermoelectric I reply with
11:56 Sgt_Lemming dude, did you not see all the puns?
11:56 Thermoelectric Yeah, that I did.
11:57 Thermoelectric Just really glanced over it though.
11:59 pegasus aha, i was incorrect
11:59 pegasus skynet becomes self-aware on the 19th, but doesn't launch nukes until the 21st
12:00 Thermoelectric Tomorrah!
12:00 * pegasus goes to get cold hard facts
12:01 pegasus and in T2 apparently it was August 29th
12:01 pegasus (1997)
12:01 pegasus so yeah, sarah connor chronicles end of days tomorrow
12:01 pegasus crazy bible man end of days may 21st
12:01 Thermoelectric Oh, so that's the Sarah connor chronicles that say it's tomorrow?
12:02 pegasus mayan calendar end of days next year sometime
12:02 pegasus yeah
12:03 Thermoelectric Wonder what Facebook will think of that. *waits* :P
12:03 pegasus hmm
12:05 * pegasus gets out a hammer
12:05 Sgt_Lemming;feature=player_embedded
12:15 Thermoelectric *looks at related video* Changing to inverter PSU's in microwaves, eh? A reason to stock up on MOT's, yay!
12:23 Sgt_Lemming so long as the psu's are easy to control, BRING IT ON!
12:24 Thermoelectric I think it'll be all the shitty overcurrent stuff that will end up being annoying.
12:25 Thermoelectric The one that dude showed in the video just had a 3 pin control line, but he mentioned it needed a square wave pulse to drive it, not sure if he knew what he was talking about or not, though.
12:29 moxiemike-sleep The Mayan "apocalypse" is supposed to be on December 21 2012

13:23 wanted focus on the topping!
13:23 wanted tomato and shit
13:24 MoxieMike we make sure the correct lamp is used in each fixture, aim them at the art on the wall, aim them to the center of the tables, etc
13:24 CaptainBoden Goodmorning Gentlemen
13:24 Thermoelectric Morning Chris.
13:24 wanted captainboden?...u chirs boden??

13:29 CaptainBoden How am I NOT a mod?
13:29 cctoide Thermo's an op
13:29 CaptainBoden THERMO! Give me Op status please
13:29 MoxieMike don't know
13:29 * eightbitbrad takes cover
13:29 cctoide not sure if channel's set to restrict ops though, probably not
13:29 eightbitbrad shouldn't be.
13:29 MoxieMike would chanserv recognise a different nick for you?
13:30 CaptainBoden Thermoelectric?
13:30 Cprossu CaptainBoden: just outa curiosity do you your nick registered?
13:30 CaptainBoden yes
13:30 Cprossu and authed too right?
13:30 CaptainBoden I've no idea
13:30 Cprossu well type in /msg nickserv identify yourpassword
13:31 Cprossu someone shoulda added you to the list I hope
13:31 CaptainBoden says I'm already logged in
13:31 eightbitbrad CaptainBoden: You'd know if you hadn't authed, you'd turn into guest83409345 or the like.
13:32 CaptainBoden k
13:32 CaptainBoden Thermoelectric, are you consious?
13:32 Cprossu actually it depends, eightbitbrad
13:32 Cprossu for an example Cprossu_Laptop isn't authed
13:32 Thermoelectric Whoops, was getting a snack. What's up?
13:32 eightbitbrad but is it registered?
13:32 CaptainBoden Make me an Op please
13:32 Sgt_Lemming me too :-P
13:33 Cprossu Thermoelectric do you have the access to give him access?
13:33 Cprossu (lol)
13:33 eightbitbrad bingo.
13:33 CaptainBoden Thank you sir
13:33 eightbitbrad Behold, the power of ops.
13:33 wanted was kicked by CaptainBoden: wanted
13:33 CaptainBoden Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
13:33 eightbitbrad Just remember, eightbitbrad is your friend, CaptainBoden
13:33 eightbitbrad :)
13:33 Sgt_Lemming rofl
13:33 Cprossu what's your auth level, Thermoelectric?
13:33 CaptainBoden That's better.
13:33 Sgt_Lemming so worthy
13:33 Thermoelectric Auth level?
13:34 Cprossu I'm gonna have to start remembering chanserv commands, but I Think it's /msg chanserv access
13:34 CaptainBoden Now, wha'ts up today?
13:34 Cprossu I'm gonna have to start remembering chanserv commands, but I Think it's /msg chanserv #thegeekgroup access
13:34 Cprossu or something
13:34 Seroster joined #thegeekgroup
13:34 CaptainBoden oh christ
13:34 Sgt_Lemming what's up is I am still trying to figure out how the fuck I am gonna afford to come there
13:34 Seroster You may call me Seroster, CaptainBoden.
13:34 BotSteve Seroster: At 05:13Z, BatSteve asked me to tell you he'll have to do without a greeting for a bit, until I can get the database updated.
13:35 MoxieMike well, i'm 7 .25 cameras deep into the disassembly project
13:35 cctoide Thermo and BatSteve have full access
13:35 MoxieMike i've got a long way to go
13:35 cctoide +voOtsriRfAF
13:35 * eightbitbrad is at work, and not liking it.
13:36 Seroster BotSteve: tell BatSteve Its allright. I lived 18 years without greets, I can survive another week or two^^
13:36 BotSteve Seroster: I'll pass that on when BatSteve is around.
13:36 Thermoelectric Least you don't work in a fast food outlet, eightbitbrad.
13:36 CaptainBoden brb waking the house up
13:36 Seroster .t -5
13:36 BotSteve Wed, 20 Apr 2011 08:36:39 -5
13:36 * Sgt_Lemming works for apple
13:36 Sgt_Lemming that's bad enough
13:36 eightbitbrad Thermoelectric: True that.  just no motivation today is all.
13:37 Cprossu type out '/msg chanserv access #thegeekgroup add CaptainBoden +O' at least
13:37 Thermoelectric I thought you worked at IBM, Sgt_Lemming?
13:37 Cprossu I think that's proper
13:37 Seroster CaptainBoden, do you always wake up the house? =P
13:37 Sgt_Lemming technically I work for both
13:37 Seroster Maybe on this server, cprossu
13:37 Sgt_Lemming it's retarded
13:37 Cprossu type out /msg chanserv access #thegeekgroup add
13:37 Cprossu *sorry
13:38 Seroster All the servers I'm used to have /cs access #chan <nick> <level>
13:38 Cprossu yeah and this one looks messed up,
13:39 CaptainBoden usually, yes I do
13:39 cctoide access #thegeekgroup add CaptainBoden O
13:39 cctoide should be
13:39 Cprossu give that a shot
13:39 eightbitbrad Someone sent me this
13:41 Seroster What is your prferred method of awakening the minnions? Screaming, bucket of water or broom handle?
13:41 Sgt_Lemming bucket of water + taser
13:41 CaptainBoden Na, I'm nice.
13:42 MoxieMike CaptainBoden, box 1 of 6 of cameras is the smallest and has another 25 cameras in it.
13:42 Seroster Ah, you use an NST? =D
13:42 MoxieMike I'd suggest megaphone
13:42 CaptainBoden Only when someone is on my shit list am I mean about waking htem up. Though I did buy Bongos specifically to wake cory up, and upgraded to an electric megaphone.
13:42 eightbitbrad LOL
13:42 Sgt_Lemming lol
13:42 Seroster xD
13:42 Sgt_Lemming cory sleeps like the tiatnic?
13:42 MoxieMike hahaah
13:43 MoxieMike or does he just like bongos?
13:43 eightbitbrad Slap a mic on the bongos and rig into a PA system, just for Cory
13:43 CaptainBoden Cory sleeps like it's his job, though he's doing much better now.
13:43 Sgt_Lemming heh
13:43 Sgt_Lemming does cory do anything outside TGG? work wise I mean?
13:43 CaptainBoden Nope, this is his life.
13:43 Sgt_Lemming kk
13:43 Sgt_Lemming I'd kinda like it to be mine, but yeah
13:44 Seroster I saw this wonderful thing with a mechanised bed. A huge damn cylinder that actually tips the bed 90 degrees
13:44 CaptainBoden He typically starts at 9am and works until 11pm, nearly as many hours as I do.
13:44 * Sgt_Lemming nods
13:44 Seroster And he gets paid in tacos?
13:44 Sgt_Lemming that wouldn't bother me, I'd gladly spend all day teaching people how to do shit
13:44 CaptainBoden yes
13:44 MoxieMike He seems like a good kid
13:44 Sgt_Lemming it's why I do my current job
13:44 CaptainBoden He gets free room and board.
13:44 CaptainBoden He is a good kid, a bit of a clusterfuck, but he's got heart and he's getting better every day.
13:44 Thermoelectric I'm curious, how do you all get by food wise etc? With no real income I'd assume it is a challenge...
13:45 MoxieMike living is easy without expenses
13:45 CaptainBoden It is a challenge, we have a benefactor who pays the basic bills and we all do a little work on the side here and there to get a couple bucks.
13:45 CaptainBoden AS a rule though, we're pretty broke.
13:45 Sgt_Lemming yeah
13:45 Cprossu CaptainBoden: just outa curiosity, how far away is Chelsea from GR?
13:46 CaptainBoden I don't know, I've never met her.
13:46 Cprossu there's a rather remote possibility I could get a job down there
13:46 Cprossu hah
13:46 MoxieMike are there plans that at some point when Avalon is self suficient to have you guys collect a paycheck?
13:46 CaptainBoden Yes, payroll is in the works, but it will be a while.
13:46 Seroster I doubt it will be a large one
13:46 MoxieMike doesn't need to be a large one
13:47 CaptainBoden We could actually be there pretty fast if we could get paid membership taking off. We have about 3500 members, if I could get them all to buy member cards and become paying members at $40 a month we'd be ok, we'd be BARELY profitable, but we'd be in black ink.
13:47 CaptainBoden Nominal paychecks to start out with will be $200 a week.
13:47 Seroster I think that CaptainBoden is the kind of guy that says "oh, we got 25k excess in the budget? Sweet! Let's buy laptops for kids!"
13:47 Thermoelectric I'd buy one if I had a good picture of myself.
13:47 CaptainBoden I can't imagine making that much money.
13:48 MoxieMike it'll happen with time
13:48 MoxieMike just remember, you're famous on the internet
13:48 CaptainBoden Things like that are why I don't have access to Group funds ;)
13:48 MoxieMike hahahaa
13:48 Seroster Unless something totally fucks up, it will, MoxieMike
13:49 Cprossu Man that would be nuts, so much shit breaks down or just moves up in cost making it a moving target
13:49 CaptainBoden Vicki is the treasurer, she pays the bills and handles the money, I have very, very little to do with it.
13:49 Cprossu I hate electricity
13:49 CaptainBoden Moose processes donations.
13:49 CaptainBoden I spend most of my time fixing things and moving heavy equipment.
13:50 Sgt_Lemming if it helps, I have a fitter and turners certificate :-P
13:50 MoxieMike fixing stuff is fun, but lifting heavy stuff isn't as fun
13:50 Seroster Depends on your definition of fun =P
13:50 Cprossu MoxieMike: it depends on your lifting tool
13:50 CaptainBoden You guys see the videos where I'm all cool and rocking out, what nobody sees is how I spend every morning from 8am to Noon doing paperwork and begging people on the phone.
13:50 Sgt_Lemming yeah
13:50 Sgt_Lemming I spend lots of time doing that for the hackerspace here
13:50 Seroster CaptainBoden, that would make a great main channel video.
13:51 eightbitbrad CaptainBoden: You should get Cory to do a "Day in the life of the Captain" video
13:51 Seroster Showing people how much paperwork is involved
13:51 CaptainBoden And this afternoon, my glamourus job has me pulling Coax through a filthy ceiling......I tell ya, every day is a gift, lol.
13:51 eightbitbrad show members what you go through day-to-day
13:51 Cprossu actually you might be cable to get a TV show doing that
13:51 Cprossu *able to get a cable tv show*
13:51 Cprossu but it wouldn't be good for anyone I think
13:51 Seroster To be honest... I would be happy as a pig in a puddle of shit pulling Coax =P
13:51 CaptainBoden lol
13:51 CaptainBoden brb phone
13:52 Sgt_Lemming nah
13:52 Sgt_Lemming fuck that, I hate pulling cable
13:52 Cprossu careful what you wish for Seroster
13:52 Seroster Heh
13:52 Sgt_Lemming stand me in front of a machine tool though and I'll be fine for hours
13:52 eightbitbrad some day I'll have my own place that I can geek out and rewire.  As it is, I'm gonna be living the apartment life for the foreseeable future.
13:52 Cprossu because the pulling coax in a puddle of shit part could happen
13:53 Sgt_Lemming <--- each one of the three headlight housings there took approx 4 hours on a manual lathe
13:53 Sgt_Lemming they are approx 32mm long by 30mm round
13:53 SparkyStudio Pulling cable was fun many years ago in telephone exchanges over several floors and across the racks, 300 triples were the biggest
13:53 Seroster But CaptainBoden, I hereby submit a formal suggestion that you should make a day of the captain with cory. Have him follow you around, and don't edit out the boring stuff you do, but keep the vid under 20 mins or so.
13:53 cesar_ joined #thegeekgroup
13:53 Cprossu Yeah, and one day I'll have my own underground base that has labs for each year of equipment, every time I fill up a lab I'll dig another room. We call can wish
13:54 Seroster Fritzl style, cprossu? =P
13:54 cesar_ is now known as Guest21659
13:54 Cprossu *all* man
13:54 Cprossu I can't seem to type for shit today
13:54 Cprossu just like steve_ was having issues yesterday
13:54 Cprossu I wonder if it was contagious
13:54 Guest21659 lol
13:54 Guest21659 sems so
13:54 Sgt_Lemming btw, spinning copper on a lathe, is fun, cause it's such an amazing colour when it's freshly cut
13:54 Guest21659 seems so ffs
13:55 Sgt_Lemming the shitful bit is how fucking slow you have to cut it
13:55 Sgt_Lemming like .5mm per pass
13:55 Cprossu spinning anything in a lathe is damn cool
13:55 Guest21659 unless you got LONG HAIR
13:55 Cprossu I saw someone spin a very strange plastic in a lathe once
13:55 Cprossu then it's fun to watch
13:55 Cprossu still
13:55 Sgt_Lemming aluminium is great becaue of how easy it is, steel is awesome for how shiny it goes, brass swarf looks awesome
13:56 Sgt_Lemming you can friction weld plastics with a lathe
13:56 Sgt_Lemming that's fun to do
13:56 Cprossu it was a weird ass plastic too
13:56 CaptainBoden We just got another truckload of studio equipment donated :)
13:56 Cprossu he made a bell with it to be funny
13:56 SparkyStudio They friction weld train axles too
13:56 CaptainBoden brb
13:56 Cprossu CaptainBoden: freaking awesome
13:57 Cprossu I wonder if they're getting that newsvan yet
13:57 Sgt_Lemming
13:57 eightbitbrad CaptainBoden: holy crap!  The studio is going to be bursting with equipment goodness.
13:58 Sgt_Lemming CaptainBoden, now all you need is someone to donate a 6 axis machining centre :-P
13:58 Sgt_Lemming;feature=related <--- awesome friction weld
14:01 Electronics sort of back
14:01 Electronics wow that's pretty awesome
14:01 Cprossu god damn you can see the heatline nd everything
14:02 Cprossu a very good weld I may add
14:02 Electronics I want one!
14:02 Sgt_Lemming you *can* do it with a lathe, but only small ones
14:02 Cprossu what do they do to relieve the pressure in the metal? are these things preheated in any way?
14:02 Sgt_Lemming and you need to make a flywheel to do it
14:03 Sgt_Lemming not to my knowledge Cprossu, no preheating required.
14:04 Cprossu it'd be kind of cool to make a friction welding machine with 2 flywheels at either end with the stationary piece in the center so you could weld oddly shaped things together
14:04 Cprossu in that way
14:04 Sgt_Lemming
14:04 Sgt_Lemming already done
14:04 Guest21659 what speed is needed? 600 RPM?
14:04 Sgt_Lemming that is a truck axle being welded
14:04 Sgt_Lemming Guest21659, depends on a lot of variables
14:05 Sgt_Lemming the material, the thickness, the pressure used, etc, etc
14:05 Guest21659 what if i made one, and there was no way of dis-engauging once the weld took hold..would this cause a fire?
14:05 Sgt_Lemming what do you mean dis-engaging?
14:06 Guest21659 the power of rotation or drive
14:06 Guest21659 what if there was no clutch?
14:06 Sgt_Lemming it would burn out your drive motor
14:06 Guest21659 why didnt u just type YES then to  the "would this cause a fire"
14:07 Guest21659 lol
14:07 Sgt_Lemming burn out != fire
14:07 steve______ joined #thegeekgroup
14:07 Guest21659 yes it does..well done
14:07 Sgt_Lemming no, it does not
14:07 Guest21659 try it out...i bet you the coil can catch fire!!
14:07 SparkyProjects
14:08 Guest21659 ive seen plenty of motors on washing machines catch light
14:08 Sgt_Lemming it can catch fire, that doesn't mean it will Guest21659
14:08 Guest21659 commercial washers
14:08 Sgt_Lemming a motor can burn out, without catching fire
14:08 SparkyProjects Used to do something like that with blunt drills :D
14:08 Sgt_Lemming the wire will fuse and melt, it's not on fire though
14:08 Guest21659 i know that..i was just saying it can
14:09 Sgt_Lemming you, said "burn out = fire"
14:09 Sgt_Lemming it doesn't
14:09 Guest21659 ha ha
14:09 Guest21659 someone find an electric motor fire
14:09 Guest21659 winner gets to boast
14:10 Sgt_Lemming sigh...
14:10 Sgt_Lemming one can lead to the other, yes, that doesn't mean that they are the same thing, or that you can't have one without the other.
14:11 Sgt_Lemming a motor can catch fire but not burn out, also they can burn out but not catch fire
14:12 Guest21659

14:17 BatSteve howdy all
14:17 BotSteve BatSteve: At 13:36Z, Seroster asked me to tell you Its allright. I lived 18 years without greets, I can survive another week or two^^
14:17 Sgt_Lemming the cable acted like a big capacitor and when they tried to disconnect it, it was enough voltage to arc across
14:17 Cprossu Sgt_Lemming: as far as I know they were testing a failed vacuum switch
14:17 Cprossu yeah
14:17 Guest21659 315k.?..NO its 500,000 man..same as stated on the video..dont you see to good?
14:18 Cprossu either way it's not under load
14:18 Sgt_Lemming have you ever considered the comments on teh video might be wrong Guest21659?
14:18 Cprossu and as Sgt_Lemming said, it was a case of it being truely live
14:18 Sgt_Lemming that video has been around for at least 8 years that I know of
14:20 SparkyStudio I think this is better

14:29 CaptainBoden )D
14:29 CaptainBoden LOVE MY JOB!
14:30 Electronics Welcome back
14:30 CaptainBoden So, I've been calling around to TV stations getting gear donated for the past month.
14:30 Cprossu very cool, CaptainBoden: you got th newsvan?!
14:30 BatSteve CaptainBoden has leveled up
14:30 CaptainBoden I just got a call back from one of the local engineers.
14:30 * Sgt_Lemming plays the Zelda "Got Item" sound.
14:30 Cprossu think you got enough coax to drag a camera down there so we can see?
14:31 CaptainBoden He knew who I was, knew the Group, watches every video, LOVES what we do, and is not only going to donate a ton of gear, he's going to help us get ALL the other stations to donate a LOT more gear.
14:31 Electronics awesome =D
14:31 Sgt_Lemming heh
14:31 Sgt_Lemming nice
14:31 eightbitbrad CaptainBoden: Awesomeness.
14:31 Cprossu that's epic.
14:31 cctoide sounds great
14:31 Sgt_Lemming always good when you get shite like that
14:31 Thermoelectric You're going to run out of the stickers for inventory at this rate. :P
14:31 Cprossu he can always buy new stickers
14:31 Sgt_Lemming that's what masking tape and markers is for Thermoelectric
14:32 CaptainBoden We just made a new friend, I'm sure you'll see him in upcoming videos. His name is Dick. And now you guys know the secret backstory when he shows up in a video in a month ;)
14:32 Cprossu masking tape leaves a nasty residue when it breaks down
14:32 Thermoelectric Ah, yes, the good 'ole masking tape.
14:32 Sgt_Lemming decent masking tape doesn't Cprossu
14:32 Electronics Old black electrical tape is wors
14:32 Electronics *worse

14:33 BatSteve that stuff works great
14:33 BatSteve just saying
14:33 Cprossu no it's 'purple shit'
14:33 Electronics XD
14:33 Cprossu I think it's called purple power
14:34 Cprossu
14:34 Cprossu it fucking takes electrical tape goo off though
14:34 Cprossu nothing else I've found will
14:35 Guest21659 so does WD40
14:35 Guest21659 or zippo lighter fluid..even better
14:36 Cprossu with this shit though, you spray it and WIPE IT

14:53 Guest21659 and an old type (CRT) tv...dangerous voltages on the back of them bitches too even after a day or too
14:53 Yaotzin Yeah microwaves seem to be mentioned a lot, it is surprising you haven't done one, same with speakers. Speaking of I have a Bass amp to donate although it'll have to wait until I'm actually in Michigan.
14:53 tmb I'll keep an eye out on garbage night.... someone is always throwing one of those away...
14:53 Yaotzin However I will have an amp to be dismantled
14:53 Yaotzin For science
14:54 tmb (we did disect a magnitron to get the magnets already. did that video ever post???)
14:54 CaptainBoden I'm ALWAYS looking for interesting things for autopsy videos.
14:54 Electronics I've never seen a magnitron vid on the channel
14:54 CaptainBoden Next set will be a GIANT professioonal UPS and an electric typewriter.
14:54 MoxieMike Want a laptop with hinge and motherboard failure?
14:54 Yaotzin Oh nice a UPS
14:55 tmb For Science??? Portal reference??? (picked up Portal 2 last night. Cracking it open this weekend)
14:55 BatSteve tmb: ::jealous::
14:55 Thermoelectric Ask Cprossu all about it, he's finished it.
14:55 Guest21659 tmb..u p kidwell?
14:56 Electronics I want Portal 2
14:56 Yaotzin Ditto on the jealous, I'm probably going to wait until the price drops down a bit before I get Portal 2. I wish I was aware of the ARG before it finished
14:56 Yaotzin ARGs in general are interesting.
14:56 BatSteve if I was close enough to play in person I definitely would have
14:57 ravezombie Until they turn into a mess of links, websites, and just a confusing mess to the point they're no longer able to be followed.
14:57 ravezombie Other than that, ARG's are awesome.
14:57 BatSteve also, I'm pretty sure that "For Science!" was a Girl Genius reference before it was a Portal reference
14:57 Yaotzin Cant it just be for science? :p
14:58 BatSteve durp.  I forgot ravezombie has participated in a few ARGs
14:58 cctoide Was it the BetaCam autopsy where Chris chucked a screwdriver through the autopsy set?
15:00 MoxieMike i think so
15:00 CaptainBoden That blew the cameraman's mind when I did that
15:00 Yaotzin Shame we never got to see the x amount of failed camera autopsies
15:01 CaptainBoden no, it's not, anything worth watching makes it to air.
15:01 Yaotzin It ended that quickly eh?
15:01 cctoide I'm trying to find the moment in the video, can't recall if it was before or after cracking open the prism
15:02 Guest21659 4500 micro farad electrolytic capacitor discharge lol
15:02 SparkyProjects wasn't it the breadmaker ?
15:02 cctoide I think there was an autopsy video some time ago that essentially "failed" because you couldn't get it open, so you just broke out the precision lens tool instead
15:02 cctoide might have been on the Physicsduck channel
15:02 Thermoelectric I remember that one.
15:04 Yaotzin Oh, damn I wish you had the stream going when you were doing the DSL modem autopsy CaptainBoden , I wanted you to crack open one of those crystals.
15:04 Yaotzin specially that large on
15:04 Yaotzin one*. I just thought about that
15:07 tmb Well folks, I gotta go design a circuit card (atmega 644 processor, eight 0-20V adc inputs, 8 darlington outputs, plus a LIN bus interface... this is my idea of fun :)

15:10 ravezombie hello
15:11 BatSteve hi mash
15:15 CaptainBoden anyone know the time and in what video I tossed that screwdriver into the wall?
15:15 Yaotzin So many videos with you throwing things at cory
15:16 Yaotzin That was in the geekhouse basement?
15:17 ubergoober dont remeber that one
15:17 cctoide no, it was a couple of days ago
15:17 Yaotzin Oh
15:17 Thermoelectric Pretty sure it wasn't the bread maker one...
15:17 Yaotzin No
15:17 Guest21659 you need to replay the vid to see where to find the screwdriver again?
15:18 CaptainBoden I thought it was the camera one
15:18 CaptainBoden it was in the latest set
15:18 mashpriborintorg the Sony camera  video has a crappy screwdriver issue, this one maybe
15:18 cctoide I expected it to be after he snapped the chinese screwdriver on the camera housing
15:18 mashpriborintorg also
15:18 Yaotzin Oh wow I haven't seen the BetaCam video
15:19 ubergoober has anyone figured out the conversion for decibels to bodens
15:19 Yaotzin yes
15:19 Yaotzin I did
15:19 BatSteve 195 decibel = 1 bDn  I think
15:19 Yaotzin ^
15:19 mashpriborintorg Oh ! go to see it right now, the Time Code explanation part is epic !
15:19 Yaotzin Normal conversation level is .333~ bDn
15:20 Thermoelectric Hence '<Yaotz> .3 Boden is an acceptable level of boden'
15:20 Yaotzin Yup
15:21 Yaotzin Then when I found out normal conversation level in dB it was easy to find out what 1.0 Boden is
15:21 ubergoober isnt 194 dB the loudest possible sound
15:21 SparkyStudio Chris mentioned last night that the boden scale should be linear (or something), so it's different from db
15:21 cctoide thinking back... were they done rolling when the screwdriver got thrown?
15:22 Yaotzin Which is 5dB louder then the theoretical loudest noise produced on earth, which was the Krakatoa eruption.
15:22 Electronics ∞ is the largest sound
15:22 Yaotzin which was 190 dB
15:22 Yaotzin Supposedly
15:23 CaptainBoden You know guys, we have an oppertunity here.
15:23 ubergoober for what
15:23 BatSteve I dunno, it seems like there could be louder sounds, you just couldn't hear them because they'd kill you.
15:23 mashpriborintorg Big Bang should are been a quite awesome sound, if it did not occur in a perfect vacuum, too bad
15:23 CaptainBoden ok, well, you guys have created a new unit of measurement, the Boden.
15:23 Electronics yep
15:24 BatSteve yep
15:24 Electronics bDn
15:24 CaptainBoden And, it's obviously a measurement of loudness.
15:24 Guest21659 the Tunguska event was the loudest sound ever recorded
15:24 Guest21659 a meteor which went off as an aerial burst
15:24 CaptainBoden Now, traditionally, the Bell is the unit of sound pressure. But the Bell is bloody huge so we use 10th of a Bell or deciBells.
15:24 CaptainBoden However, it's a wicked complicated scale, it's logarythmicly based and very counterintuitive.
15:25 dagnyscott joined #thegeekgroup
15:25 Electronics so is the Boden Linear?
15:25 ubergoober did everyone else just lose video and audio
15:25 CaptainBoden So, let's make the Boden actually MEAN something, with a scientific base, to be the equivilent to a metric, linearly based, INTUITIVE measurement of sound pressure.
15:25 Guest21659 The Tunguska event was a massive explosion that occurred near the Podkamennaya (Under Rock) Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai of Russia, at 7:40 AM on June 30, 1908. The explosion was most likely caused by the air burst of a large meteoroid or comet fragment at an altitude of 5 to 10 kilometers (3–6 mi) above Earth’s surface. It was measured with the similar impact of a 1000-Mega-ton bomb with a decibel ra
15:25 Electronics I'm not watching the stream
15:25 Yaotzin Yeah isn't the difference between 4dB and 5dB like 1.4x or 1.5x
15:26 Yaotzin the difference between a whole increased in dB
15:26 CaptainBoden The dB scale is maddening.
15:26 CaptainBoden If you have a 100 Watt amp and want to double the sound you don't need a 200 Watt amp, you need a 1000 Watt amp.
15:27 CaptainBoden And if you have a 100dB sound, and want to make it twice as loud, you have to take it to 103dB, not 200.
15:27 SparkyStudio db scale is even more maddening when a VU meter starts at -31
15:27 CaptainBoden yes
15:27 MoxieMike so, if we're making a sound pressure standard, should there be a standard measuring distance or standard equivalent distance?
15:27 CaptainBoden So, if you guys are going to make a unit of measurement, let's make it a REAL one and make it actually useful.
15:28 CaptainBoden Well the traditional standard is 1 watt and 1 meter.
15:28 Electronics 0bDn=Silence. A good start
15:28 Yaotzin We'll need to create a constant and build some sort of measure off of it
15:28 Yaotzin right
15:28 SparkyStudio 1 watt at 1 metre should = 1dbn
15:28 Electronics dBm indicates that the reference quantity is one milliwatt, while dBu is referenced to 0.775 volts RMS
15:28 Yaotzin But we need to define silence
15:28 Electronics 0
15:28 CaptainBoden It has to have a proper nomenclature. The Deciblell is dB because it's actually called the Bell and Deci is a SI prefix.
15:29 Electronics Bel
15:29 CaptainBoden The Boden should be Bd
15:29 Yaotzin I mean, silence to the human ear, silence as in no moving particles in the air?
15:29 SparkyStudio deciboden should be dBd then
15:29 CaptainBoden Which is funny as opped to the dB of Decibell.
15:29 Yaotzin like theoretical 0 in kalvins if I'm not mistaken
15:29 CaptainBoden Yes, 0 Bd is absolute silence.
15:30 ubergoober 1bD= the loudest boden can yell
15:30 Yaotzin so 0 is total silence
15:30 Electronics ya
15:30 Yaotzin How do we get from theoretical to real world levels?
15:30 Yaotzin well
15:30 Yaotzin We need a scale
15:30 CaptainBoden a LINEAR scale.
15:31 MoxieMike .w smoot
15:31 BotSteve "The smoot (pronounced /ˈsmuːt/) is a nonstandard unit of length created as part of an MIT fraternity prank." -
15:31 CaptainBoden and it may be 100 Bd is the loudness I yell at.
15:31 CaptainBoden It's what Celcius used, 100, instead of 1.
15:31 MoxieMike so, 200 is you with a megaphone?
15:31 Electronics XD
15:31 CaptainBoden perhaps, I don't know.
15:32 Electronics 400 is you with two megaphones infront of each other
15:32 Yaotzin We'd want it to be pretty precise, but I'm wondering
15:32 CaptainBoden But, we have to convert TO the scale, it's tricky
15:32 Yaotzin Yeah
15:32 CaptainBoden I think this needs to be a forum thread.
15:32 CaptainBoden But it's a good and interesting learning experience. If you guys are going to name a unit of measure after me, it has to mean somthing.
15:33 CaptainBoden PErhaps if you really do well with it, we can get it made official somehow.
15:33 Yaotzin What started as a joke could really turn into something. Still, do we try to convert from db or do we try recording several different constants and building a scale from that?
15:33 SparkyStudio Captainboden, is there a way you can set up a mic and a voltmeter, calibrate so the loudest you shout is 100Bd, then try other things at different settings, that way we get a real world list, example, hammer blows on table = x
15:33 Thermoelectric I wonder if it would be a good idea to get a Wikipedia page on The Geek Group to stay there, first.
15:34 mikemol Thermoelectric: Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it.
15:34 mikemol At some point, someone will add the page and maintain it. It doesn't need to be a concerted community effort.
15:34 CaptainBoden Start a forum thread and have someone do it as an experiment. I'll volunteer to do my part but I want a member to be involved in the actual experiment.
15:34 CaptainBoden and it can't be one of the staff.
15:34 SparkyStudio if a wiki style page is part of TGG website, wouldn't that be better ?
15:34 mikemol WP folk fight back when they see concerted efforts to have the wiki say something.
15:34 ravezombie for the wiki thing, if they keep deleting the article just make a wikidot site....?
15:34 cctoide It'll only stick once it meets their standards for notability
15:35 cctoide and I don't think it has yet
15:35 Electronics I'm trying to work out an approximation ffrom dB to Bd
15:35 mikemol For own site has a wiki page. They reference it as a reputable source on dozens (hundreds?) of pages. I'd disagree with them on that point...
15:35 mikemol I really don't think WP is a particularly rational encyclopedia.
15:36 * Thermoelectric ponders mikemol's logic
15:36 cctoide well, there's the other thing that at this point getting anything to stick involves a lot of wikilawyering
15:36 Yaotzin Electronics: Are you starting the thread or should I?
15:36 cctoide because it's turned into a gigantic clusterfuck of bureaucracy
15:37 eightbitbrad joined #thegeekgroup
15:37 cctoide but personally, I agree with them in considering GG non-notable for now...
15:37 mikemol Thermoelectric: My own site is not one I would consider a good resource for seeing "this is how it is". I'm aware of far too much churn in the accuracy of the content on my site for me to think of it as appropriate in an "appeal to authority" argument (which works cited on WP generally are)
15:37 Electronics you can start the thread
15:37 Electronics I hate log stuff gah
15:38 Electronics stupid dB
15:38 Thermoelectric The page was deleted as it was classed as self promotion, so it's not really the notable aspect of it, it's whos point of view it is from.
15:38 cctoide it *could* be notable based on the web presence alone, but the content doesn't get enough views for that
15:38 Ponko92 joined #thegeekgroup
15:38 ravezombie Therefore there is no point for them to keep the article. Like I said, wikidot if everyone is really that concerned about it.
15:38 BatSteve hi ponko
15:38 cctoide but in the end there's no real need for a wikipedia article
15:39 Ponko92 hi batsteve
15:39 cctoide a wikipedia article and the GG wiki serve different purposes
15:39 mikemol Thermoelectric: If self-promotion is the problem, then community effort in getting the page to stick is the absolute wrong way to go about it.
15:39 SparkyStudio Wouldn't it be better to just ignore db ? start from scratch, you just need the upper and lower reference, make a meter to show a linear audio scale, and calibrate, then a list of real things to compare them to
15:40 BatSteve the upper reference is the important thing
15:40 cctoide the WP article "should" be encyclopedic; if it's put there to draw views then it's more or less advertising...
15:40 * mikemol grouses. He really dislikes much of the WP community's 'beaurocrat mentality'.
15:40 BatSteve "how loud Boden can yell", while hilarious, isn't optimal
15:40 cctoide whereas the GG wiki (which already exists) is there to document the group's culture, projects, etc.
15:40 Guest21659 is there a Geekipedia out there?
15:40 Seroster Probably
15:40 mikemol BatSteve: "1W of sound at 1m in 1atm of hydrogen at STP?
15:40 mikemol "
15:41 Seroster There are so many damn pedias nowdays
15:41 Thermoelectric cctoide: You were right. Not overly notable...
15:41 CaptainBoden ok gentlemen, I'm heading to the lab. It's time to TERMINATE! :)
15:41 Guest21659 tell me about it..they should all be locked up lol
15:41 cctoide "Assume a spherical Boden at sea level..."
15:41 mikemol er.
15:41 CaptainBoden I'll see you shortly.
15:41 Seroster Guest21659, I can give you a link to a high voltage wikipedia
15:41 mikemol In hydrogen at STP
15:41 Seroster Cya CaptainBoden
15:41 Seroster   I don't know how good it is, but it IS a geekpedia
15:42 Ponko92 YEAH i just did it in under 1 1/2 hours
15:42 Guest21659 have a blast c@ptain boden
15:42 ubergoober is the sound of a 12 gauge inside a enclosed area optimal
15:42 ravezombie But with the wiki there's a sense of control over what gets deleted and what doesn't, documentation aside. It can still serve as advertising for your group and get the word out there. If folks are part of forums, link it to your personal webpage portion on profiles. There's a lot of ways to go about doing this without complaining over the fact that a wiki article on WP getting deleted.
15:43 cctoide OK, I think there's a misunderstanding here though
15:43 mashpriborintorg We will know how many time the captain needs to reach the lab, it should be a start for designing a new time unit :-D
15:43 cctoide we're conflating the matter of there being a WP article about TGG with having a TGG wiki
15:43 Ponko92 .w The Geek Group
15:43 cctoide the latter is already there, it's just broken ever since the forums imploded
15:44 BotSteve "This page has been deleted." -
15:44 Ponko92 ah man
15:44 cctoide the former isn't really related to the latter in any way
15:44 MoxieMike I don't think we need a page on WP...we just need an internal wiki
15:44 Seroster Damn BotSteve
15:44 Seroster MoxieMike, A tgg wiki will be good
15:45 cctoide someone even wrote up an article on Thumper SOP before the forums apocalypse
15:45 Seroster Then you can link to tgg WP from the article about tesla coils
15:45 ravezombie ah, see, now I know.
15:45 Ponko92 yeah seroster thats a good idea :)
15:46 Ponko92 MoxieMike then people will get an overview then the link will have the full detailed description
15:47 MoxieMike ok
15:47 cctoide usually there's more enthusiasm for setting up the wiki than actually writing the articles later, though. :p
15:47 Ponko92 anyway lets listen to Police chatter
15:47 MoxieMike and if an MIT fraternity can make a standard of measurement, so can we.
15:48 Electronics hmm my calculations are slightly wrong
15:48 Electronics according to them 90dB = 1.02341E+89 Bd
15:48 cctoide if you wanted to be scientific about it, it could wait until the recording studio's up and running...
15:49 cctoide but that'd probably be a year, if not longer
15:50 Ponko92 cctoide that might happen sooner than you think
15:50 Seroster Ponko92, it is not MY good idea, it is simple PR and advertising tactics. All mentioning is good mentioning
15:50 Ponko92 yeah but you brought it up
15:51 MoxieMike we could either take measurements in a very well insulated sound studio, or in a very open space such as outdoors
15:51 Ponko92 RED_ when will peeps be in
15:51 RED_ hmm?
15:51 MoxieMike go to a field, and take several measurements of Chris yelling
15:51 Guest21659 can u get geek group suff like mugs and shit?
15:51 cctoide make sure to cordon off a 200 meter radius around him
15:51 Ponko92 yes
15:51 MoxieMike take an average
15:51 RED_ yes, go to
15:51 Guest21659 and can u post to the united kingdom
15:52 Ponko92 yeah they ship internationally i think
15:52 Guest21659 ok cheers
15:52 cctoide heh, that reminds me of Disaster Area from HHGTTG
15:52 Ponko92 no probs mate
15:52 Guest21659 what about a geek group electric cigarette?
15:52 Guest21659 same one as chris smokes
15:52 Ponko92 blimey thats a good idea
15:52 mikemol Hehe. The signature electric cigar?
15:52 Guest21659 my one i got from amazon sucked! it leaks fluid like hell
15:53 RED_ He's going to have his own line of vapor shit with them.
15:53 cctoide the "Krakatoa" ecig
15:53 mikemol That's got a cigar form factor, not a cigarette form factor. Thing's huge. Might double as a pen for as much volume as it's got.
15:53 Ponko92 oh gawd RED_ it'll be "The Boden Range"
15:53 RED_ lol.
15:54 Ponko92 i saw a video of someone who had a Dr. Who sonic screwdriver one of those
15:54 Guest21659 krakatoa ecig?
15:54 Guest21659 i hope it dont follow the island
15:55 Guest21659 that mofo blew to pieces lol
15:55 RED_ Ponko92, WHERE? I WANT ONE.
15:55 Ponko92 uh give me a sec i'll find the link
15:55 RED_ I'm a Dr. Who whore....don't judge.
15:55 RED_ lol
15:55 Ponko92 lol
15:55 eightbitbrad lol
15:56 MoxieMike has some sonic screwdrivers
15:56 Guest21659 what do they do bro?
15:57 MoxieMike one is the 10th doc and the other is the 11th, one is a pen the other a precision screwdriver
15:57 Ponko92 RED_ Hartnell, Troughton, Pertwee, Baker, Davidson, Baker, McCoy, McGann, Eccelston, Tennant & Smith
15:57 Thermoelectric Turn into sonic the hedgehog and spin the screw out faster than it's ever turned before
15:57 Ponko92 in chronological order :P
15:57 cctoide Never followed Doctor Who, but I always expected a sonic screwdriver to work like one of those first responder glass breakers
15:57 Guest21659 ha ha  ha ha
15:57 MoxieMike i gtg get some work back later
15:57 Yaotzin
15:58 cctoide based on the name alone
15:58 Ponko92 .w Dr. Who
15:58 BotSteve "Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC." -
15:58 Ponko92 yeah we love the BBC
15:58 Guest21659 i dont
15:58 Guest21659 i got to pay for a tv license!
15:58 Guest21659 only country in the world that does so
15:59 Ponko92 yeah i know how you feel
15:59 Thermoelectric What's a TV license?
15:59 Ponko92 .w TV License
15:59 BotSteve "A television licence (or broadcast receiver licence) is an official licence required in many countries for the reception of television (and sometimes also radio) broadcasts." -
16:00 Thermoelectric Well, I never expected it to come to that.
16:00 Ponko92 thats a TV License
16:00 Ponko92 lol
16:00 Ponko92 ah we're used to it over here
16:00 Ponko92 .w Road Tax
16:00 BotSteve "Road tax, known by various names around the world, is a tax which has to be paid on a motor vehicle before using it on a public road." -
16:01 Thermoelectric Oh, so you guys get less ads over there then, in that case?
16:01 Ponko92 yes
16:01 Guest21659 do americans have to MOT a car each year?
16:01 mashpriborintorg no :(
16:01 Ponko92 we did a forum page on that
16:01 Guest21659 test of vehicle condition
16:01 Ponko92 it varies in different states
16:01 mashpriborintorg we also have it, every 3 years
16:01 Ponko92 i do MOT Tests
16:02 RED_ is now known as RED_awayshower

16:09 ravezombie Working on a mac, so piratebay really doesn't cause problem. And Ponko, yeah, at least it is from my experience of looking for them.
16:09 Electronics I definatley need to revise it as it doesn't work for stuff <=0

16:11 BatSteve ahoy Seroster, life is pretty good
16:11 BatSteve eightbitbrad rocked out and soon we'll have random greets for the bot
16:11 Seroster I keep forgetting where you are located
16:11 Electronics brb
16:12 BatSteve Seroster: I'm in michigan, USA
16:12 Seroster Right, thats what I thought =P
16:12 Seroster Michigan.... That is up to the right of the us? =P
16:12 BatSteve .w michigan usa
16:13 BatSteve yeah, the one surrounded by water
16:13 BotSteve "Michigan (|i| /ˈmɪʃɪɡən/) is a U.S. state located in the Great Lakes Region of the United States of America." -
16:13 Seroster I thought that one was manhattan.
16:13 Guest21659
16:13 Seroster ;D
16:13 Thermoelectric It amazes me how people can remember all the states in the US and where they are. There are just so many!
16:14 Ponko92 .w Wisconsin
16:14 BotSteve "Wisconsin (|i| /wɪˈskɑːnsɪn/) is a U.S. state located in the north-central United States and is considered part of the Midwest." -
16:14 BatSteve ravezombie: this is called a highlight
16:14 Electronics back

16:15 Electronics .m sqrt(-1)
16:15 cctoide I think I got them all once... or 48 at any rate
16:15 BatSteve Electronics: you want .c for that
16:15 Electronics whatever
16:15 Electronics =P
16:15 cctoide also good:
16:15 Seroster That is strange... Do we really have such a big bot problem that "do math to post" is neccesary? =P
16:15 BatSteve I wonder if it'd work
16:15 Electronics .c sqrt(-1)
16:15 BotSteve i
16:15 BatSteve haha that's awesome!

16:22 eightbitbrad Yaotzin: IRC ports are blocked here at work

16:24 eightbitbrad I suspect we're too intense for the software

16:32 Seroster I gotta get some dark dark jonny depp movies
16:32 Yaotzin Did the forums just go down?
16:32 eightbitbrad BatSteve: thanks for the message you left me earlier.  Sqlite + bot = win!
16:32 BatSteve I know
16:32 BatSteve totally!
16:32 Seroster I didnt know they were ever up, Yaotzin
16:33 eightbitbrad I shoulda sanitized before committing, sorry 'bout that.  But now the fun begins
16:33 BatSteve the next thing we *have* to do is get rate limiting working based on channel activity
16:33 Noise_Marine joined #thegeekgroup
16:33 BatSteve basically everything else interesting depends on that
16:33 eightbitbrad oh, is it spewing too much crap?
16:33 Yaotzin Anyway Seroster the goal is to have something simplistic, so basing it off of dB would leave us with the same problem of it not being linear
16:34 Yaotzin Making a totally new simple scale I think is the goal as opposed to refluffing dB.
16:34 RED_awayshower 55 days until my Dr. Who is done downloading :(
16:34 RED_awayshower is now known as RED_
16:34 BatSteve no, it's not spewing right now
16:35 RED_ is now known as REDD
16:35 BatSteve But I want to get it so that it'll detect how busy the channel is so that we can make it not interrupt a conversation
16:35 BatSteve before we do things like implement greetings for everyone
16:35 BatSteve or whatever
16:35 BatSteve example, right now
16:35 Guest21659 55 days u on dial up
16:35 REDD is now known as Guest1008
16:35 BatSteve we wouldn't want the bot jumping with random chatter at a time like now
16:35 Cprossu wow.
16:35 Cprossu;feature=related
16:35 Guest1008 is now known as RED_home
16:35 * wannabe1987 lost thegame
16:36 DruidicRifleman jebuss red make up you mind
16:36 RED_home it's fighting me
16:36 RED_home it won't let me just use Red.
16:36 RED_home :(
16:36 RED_home Stupid internet hates me,
16:36 JA12 * [red] (~red@unaffiliated/red): red
16:36 Ponko92 55 days?
16:36 JA12 * [red] :Frankfurt, Germany
16:36 Yaotzin Oh I was going to .suggest a hold function for some of the things like .w . Like if more than 8 .w requests are sent in a 1 minute period to not reply to any more requests for 5 minutes?
16:36 Yaotzin Something along those lines
16:37 BatSteve Yaotzin: good idea, but that opens the bot to abuse
16:37 BatSteve I might send it 8 requests just to block everyone else from using it
16:37 JA12 RED_home: that line means that someone else already has a nick "red"
16:37 BatSteve what I'm thinking is if the channel reaches a certain limit of activity, all requests get answered in private message
16:37 Yaotzin True enough, although at that point we're seeing one person disrupting the channel
16:37 DruidicRifleman RED_home there 3rd time the charm check your pms
16:38 DruidicRifleman PM's
16:38 Yaotzin as opposed to a flood of several people using it at once
16:38 DruidicRifleman not the other spelling
16:38 Yaotzin thrice or more
16:38 BatSteve Hi CaptainBoden
16:38 Seroster Yaotzin, Well, get the sound of the air raid siren worked out and then make a linear scale between 1 and 0.
16:39 Seroster Or, if you want a more precise skale, make it between 0 an 10, 10 being the siren
16:39 Cprossu Hey tggconsole! 1 down
16:39 Cprossu lol
16:39 eightbitbrad BatSteve: Sounds like a good idea
16:39 Seroster So, 5 would be half the sirens sound
16:39 Seroster 1 would be a tenth of the siren
16:39 DruidicRifleman you know the jokes about loud boden would get people courtmartialaed if TGG was a part of starfleet
16:39 eightbitbrad Have to figure out a threshold of some type
16:39 BatSteve I'm not saying we *have* to do that
16:39 BatSteve other ideas are welcome
16:39 wannabe1987 RED_home - no lab today?
16:39 BatSteve but we need some sort of limiting
16:40 Yaotzin BatSteve: Yeah actually sending the requests to PM instead would be a good idea
16:40 Yaotzin after a certain amount of activity
16:40 eightbitbrad I do know I want to add functionality to .stream.  Change the link to the shortened link and allow for tggconsole or tgg* to change a variable part.  I created an issue for it.
16:40 Electronics ok!
16:40 BatSteve I did see that
16:40 DruidicRifleman there are working shower's at LSL?
16:40 BatSteve if you want to keep working on that, go ahead
16:40 Electronics I have a sort of formula for dB -> Bd
16:40 RED_home I'm going to the lab, I just haven't left for the lab yet. I've had work to get done at home.
16:40 BatSteve I didn't mean to say you couldn't work on other things
16:40 Electronics Bd=POWER(10,(dB/45))
16:41 eightbitbrad oh no, not saying that :)  We should get a limiting framework in place first though
16:41 Seroster DruidicRifleman, Then how great is it that we are NOT a part of star fleet?
16:41 DruidicRifleman :P
16:41 Electronics seems though it's impossible to get 1 boden then
16:41 wannabe1987 RED_home - o ok :)
16:41 Yaotzin Electronics:  How'd you come up with that? What is it breaking down to?
16:41 Yaotzin I don't think we really need 1 or 100 boden to mean anything
16:42 Yaotzin so long as it's simple
16:42 Seroster Electronics, yes. that is the purpose.
16:42 Seroster It is supposed to be ridicilous
16:42 Yaotzin Not anymore
16:42 Seroster The joke is that one boden is insanely loud
16:42 Yaotzin I know the joke but we're talking about making a real scale
16:42 Seroster Having a scale 1-100 bodens would defeat the jokeful purpose..
16:43 Yaotzin We're talking about a real usable alternative to dB
16:43 Seroster Having 1 as an insane top will work. Just as it works with capacitance, Farad
16:43 Seroster Ever had a one farad capacitor?
16:43 Seroster So boden would be measured in milli or piko
16:43 Cprossu Time to see if anyone re-hacked my hotmail account lately
16:44 mashpriborintorg I have a 4.7 farad capacitor somewhere
16:44 mashpriborintorg very low voltage 3 volts or so
16:44 Seroster And there is probably a 4.7 boden siren somewhere
16:44 Ponko92 man why do i feel so down
16:44 Yaotzin Electronics: Did you post that in the thread?
16:45 wannabe1987 ponko92 :(
16:45 Ponko92 need to see my fiancee soo bad
16:45 wannabe1987 where is she?
16:45 Ponko92 derby
16:45 Cprossu 1 Bdn has to be in the red for the scale
16:45 wannabe1987 how far is that?
16:45 Ponko92 bout 100 miles from Luton
16:45 Yaotzin in the red?
16:45 Seroster That sucks, Ponko92
16:46 wannabe1987 awww :(
16:46 Seroster But shell be back
16:46 wannabe1987 i'm sorry
16:46 Ponko92 yeah i know :(
16:46 Cprossu with a cap at say 4.9 bdn being the highest noise possible
16:46 Ponko92 nooo she lives up there
16:46 Seroster Aye
16:46 Yaotzin I don't think we should be setting limits on it
16:46 Seroster aye
16:46 Cprossu there should be a limit
16:46 wannabe1987 he can always get louder, guys...
16:46 Seroster No
16:46 RED_home Okay guys, talk to you later. I'm heading to the lab.
16:46 Seroster If there is a limit it will  be non linear
16:46 wannabe1987 i'll see you there, red!
16:46 Ponko92 yeah he's watching btw lol
16:47 Cprossu just like the richter
16:47 Cprossu there should be a point at which nothing more matters
16:47 Ponko92 11 on the richter
16:47 Yaotzin wannabe1987: Chris said if we're going to create a scale after him he wanted a real working one that was simple to use as opposed to the complexness of db
16:47 Ponko92 is a boden
16:47 wannabe1987 ahhhh
16:47 Yaotzin Something that could be used in the real world
16:47 Seroster aye
16:47 Cprossu yeah I know he wants it simple but the fact is 1 bdn should be fucking loud
16:47 Electronics 100Bd=a normal Boden shout we started with and 0=Complete silence
16:48 Yaotzin As in, not following the joke
16:48 Electronics and it needs to be linear
16:48 RED_home left #thegeekgroup
16:48 Yaotzin right
16:48 Electronics I need a whiteboard
16:48 Cprossu how about we measure normal ranges in milliboden?
16:48 Electronics XD
16:48 Yaotzin I happen to have two whiteboards
16:48 Yaotzin unfortunately I can't send one
16:48 Electronics no it was Captain's idea to have 100 be his rawr
16:48 Cprossu awww
16:48 Electronics like 100 Celcius
16:48 Seroster But we need to keep the scale insane, to keep the joke. Or else you could just call it the tgg scale and have it 0 silent 50 talking 100engine 150jet 200 air siren
16:49 Yaotzin I don't think we need to keep it insane
16:49 Yaotzin Infact I think if we come up with something cool out of it, it'll be worth it
16:49 Seroster The important thing is that it is linear, not the decimals
16:49 Cprossu well 100C boils water, 5000C boils zirconium
16:49 Cprossu there's a difference
16:49 Seroster It does, cprossu?
16:50 Cprossu I'm trying to say we're on the melting zirconium end with the boden scream
16:50 Yaotzin but water boiling, at a certain elevation, is a constant. Or at least close to it
16:50 Yaotzin the vocal levels of a person I'm no so sure
16:50 Yaotzin not*
16:50 Cprossu at sea level
16:50 Guest21659 breaking news: an earthquake  measuring 8.5 on the richter scale struck downtown cleevland this morning, causing $3.23 worth of damage. Eye witness chantelle 15, mother of 5, said .."it was well friggin scary, i dropped my can of special brew and my little sons habds were shaking so bad, he couldnt roll his joint properly
16:50 Seroster But the air raid siren is
16:51 Cprossu I like linear though
16:51 Seroster cprossu well, yeah. But if we made a temp scale based on that my stove is fucking hot it would be "melting of zirconium = 1 stove"
16:52 Cprossu How about centibodens?
16:52 Seroster Milli would be better
16:52 Cprossu so 100 centibodens would be 1 boden scream
16:52 Seroster Yes
16:52 Guest21659 bodenwatts
16:52 Seroster That is acceptable cprossu
16:53 Cprossu 200 centibodens would be twice that
16:53 BatSteve Seroster: not to interrupt, but I mentally rate the price of any firearm I'm considering buying in terms of Glocks.  aka: "wow, that's a nice 1911....only costs 1.5 Glocks too"
16:53 Guest21659 100 bedenwatts being enough to slap the taste out ur mouth
16:53 Seroster Lol, BatSteve.
16:53 BatSteve so I'm with you on the 1 stove concept
16:53 xanh joined #thegeekgroup
16:53 Cprossu hey CaptainBoden, tggconsole, whatever, you reading the irc?
16:54 Seroster Cprossu, 100 centibodens being the air siren, half of the air siren would be 50cb, and the siren off would be 0 cb
16:54 Yaotzin So with 0 being total silence we're getting into the levels of a person shouting in centimeasures?
16:54 Yaotzin doesn't that seem small?
16:55 mashpriborintorg we hear noises but we see nothing awesome, turn the cam towards activity spot please
16:55 Cprossu lol
16:55 Yaotzin Yeah
16:55 Seroster Yaotzin, unlike �f?
16:55 Yaotzin That's what I've been trying to say
16:55 Guest21659 yes do it! god damn it
16:55 Cprossu kind of defeats the pupose of the scale though
16:55 Seroster And what is your opinion on the purpose?
16:55 Yaotzin Cprossu: we're away from the joke
16:55 Ponko92 tggconsole red is coming
16:55 Cprossu Yaotzin: apparently
16:56 Yaotzin Something meaningful is more... meaningful
16:56 Cprossu ok joking aside, 0db == 0bdns
16:56 Yaotzin I already made a joke scale yesterday in the span in a minute
16:56 Seroster The purpose of it is to be a working simple scale that actually works, but still is funny.
16:56 Yaotzin 0dB is not total silence is it?
16:56 Rahlon left #thegeekgroup
16:56 Cprossu no it's relative
16:56 Yaotzin I thought 0dB was the nearest thing to total silence
16:56 Cprossu if I recall
16:56 Yaotzin while still being audible
16:57 Seroster Well that is also pretty strage, Yaotzin.
16:57 Yaotzin 0bdns = total silence
16:57 Seroster The sound of outer space...
16:57 Electronics well not quite as that stil has some sound
16:57 Cprossu I think that the db scale and the bdn scale should intersect at an engineered point
16:57 Electronics 100
16:57 Electronics 100dB=100Bd
16:57 Guest21659 anyone know how u can tell a blonde has just been using the computer??
16:58 Guest21659 A: the joystick is still wet
16:58 Seroster She sneezed?
16:58 Guest21659 no,, not no sneeze man!
16:58 Guest21659 lol
16:58 BatSteve Guest21659: contribute to the discussion or get kicked again
16:58 Cprossu Guest21659: how many computers have joysticks now-a-days?
16:58 Rahlon joined #thegeekgroup
16:58 Seroster ...No shit, Guest21659 =P
16:58 Yaotzin 100dB is apparently the levels of a motorcycle or snowmobile
16:59 * eightbitbrad prepares to open the door.
16:59 Cprossu but not a jet engine
17:00 Yaotzin The thing is that there are so many variables when trying to put dB to real world things
17:00 Yaotzin Here's one thing however
17:00 Yaotzin Perceptions of Increases
17:01 Cprossu CaptainBoden: would it be better to have the db scale intersect with the bdn scale at 0 or 100?
17:01 Cprossu as in an engineered intersection
17:02 Yaotzin According to what I'm reading there is no discernible difference in a increase of 1dB, where as 3dB is perceptible, 5dB is noticeable, 10dB is twice as loud and 20dB is four times as loud
17:02 Yaotzin so on our scale 50 is twice as loud as 25
17:03 Seroster cprossu I doubt he gives a shit =P
17:03 Cprossu yeah but hey
17:03 Cprossu it'll be his scale
17:03 Yaotzin What we need to know is the audible difference between 25 and 26
17:03 Yaotzin or 25 and 30
17:04 Electronics Cprossu: Captain said earlier at 100
17:04 Cprossu ahh ok
17:04 Yaotzin Would you notice a difference of a few bodens? How many until it's noticeable.
17:04 Electronics [16:31] <@CaptainBoden> and it may be 100 Bd is the loudness I yell at.
17:04 Electronics [16:31] <@CaptainBoden> It's what Celcius used, 100, instead of 1.
17:05 Electronics I'm sort of happy with my Bd=POWER(10,(dB/50))
17:05 Cprossu no I mean the intersection between decibel and boden
17:05 Electronics 100dB is a very loud shout =P
17:05 Cprossu as in when they both equal the same
17:05 Electronics so I sort of assume 100=100
17:06 Cprossu Bell J-2A helicopter at 100 ft (looks on youtube)
17:06 Guest21659 whats the point of 2 scales equallin the same?
17:06 Yaotzin
17:06 Guest21659 may as well stick with one
17:06 Cprossu
17:06 Cprossu not loud enough
17:06 xanh your mixing on 0 db it depends on the amplefier how hard it wil sound
17:07 BatSteve it's not constantly the same, it's just equalling the same at certain points.
17:07 BatSteve Much like celsius and farenheit at -40
17:08 Cprossu
17:08 Cprossu def not loud enough
17:08 Yaotzin We need repeatable constants
17:09 Seroster Couldnt guns be used for a constant?
17:09 exor674 I still vote we chase the wild boden around with a dB meter
17:10 Cprossu I think so
17:10 Yaotzin If for whatever reason we want dB and bdn to intersect at 100 then we need a constant at 100
17:10 Cprossu it's the only way to be sure
17:10 Seroster The sound of a shotgun is X boden, and also X db
17:10 Cprossu we need a boden screem at 1-3ft
17:10 Cprossu the db level
17:10 Yaotzin that is not a constant
17:10 Yaotzin his scream on tuesday can be different from his scream on wednesday
17:10 Yaotzin we need something we could calibrate a scale to
17:11 Cprossu but once we know the number we can find similar things to calibrate it
17:11 Yaotzin As in there are no variables
17:11 Yaotzin a gunshot or a yell still has variables
17:11 exor674 so is a shotgin, though I bet
17:11 Yaotzin We can measure the ranges of these with the scale
17:11 Yaotzin however to create the scale we need sounds that are only at x range
17:11 Cprossu Yaotzin: before they used cesium for clocks, pendulums were damn good
17:12 xanh you guys this is the work for a compressor. if you do it right it would never come over a 100
17:12 Cprossu the lack of the compressor caused this whole thing
17:12 Cprossu and the joke
17:12 Ponko92 :( yep really depresed but hey i'm back
17:13 Cprossu leading to an actual conversation of a unit
17:13 Cprossu of course
17:13 Yaotzin oh loads
17:13 Yaotzin heh
17:13 Yaotzin alright
17:13 Ponko92 not really
17:13 Yaotzin Any production shoots today?
17:13 Cprossu Chris, can you get us a boden scream in dB from 3ft?
17:13 Yaotzin Cprossu: :/
17:13 Julepalme joined #thegeekgroup
17:13 Cprossu was worth a shot
17:14 Yaotzin It wouldn't be useful
17:14 shockmebabby joined #thegeekgroup
17:14 Cprossu sure it would
17:14 Electronics They've got the limiter and stuff on now
17:14 Seroster It WOULD!
17:14 Cprossu no I mean with a seperate meter
17:14 exor674 Ponko92: no being depressed! :(
17:14 Electronics hmm
17:14 Cprossu they have dB meters
17:14 Seroster You just need boden to scream 100 times, and then average it out
17:14 Ponko92 yeah i can't help it mate :(
17:14 exor674 Ponko92: I know I now, it sucks though!
17:14 Yaotzin Seroster: An average isn't a constant

17:15 Ponko92 yeah
17:15 mikemol I'm unable to log into the forum. Is that happening to anyone else?
17:15 Cprossu Yaotzin: we aren't looking for a constant
17:15 Cprossu we need a ballpack figure first
17:15 Cprossu then you find something constant that compares
17:15 Yaotzin How can you create a scale with a changing number
17:15 BatSteve mikemol: checking
17:15 mgcju left #thegeekgroup
17:15 Cprossu Yaotzin: see above
17:16 Cprossu it's how they did it for the metric system
17:16 Cprossu speaking of which the official kg keeps changine
17:16 Cprossu *changing
17:16 mikemol Hm. I was able to log in with Chrome. Trying with Firefox again.
17:16 Cprossu have they rectified it yet?
17:16 Ponko92 exor674 i want/need a hug (a real 1) my fiancee who it seems i won't be seeing for ANOTHER month
17:17 BatSteve mikemol: able to log in
17:17 mikemol Nope. Login seems broken for me with FF4, but not with Chrome.
17:17 * exor674 hugs Ponko92 ( I know it's online only and not the same but )
17:17 Ponko92 yeah the thought that counts :)

17:24 BatSteve Yaotzin: moose hates IRC
17:24 BatSteve I recommend email
17:25 Cprossu Although PM's work too
17:25 BatSteve or that
17:25 Cprossu she gets back on PM's really quick
17:25 Yaotzin Thing is I wanted to be able to update the top post over time as changes were made
17:25 Yaotzin it's much simpler than digging through a thread
17:25 Cprossu but on the other hand
17:25 Cprossu It forces you to make a new thread when you want to talk about something new
17:26 Cprossu which is a good behavior
17:26 Seroster Yaotzin, An average is constant enough
17:26 Yaotzin Except this isn't talking about something new
17:26 Yaotzin this is updating the current topic
17:26 Cprossu yes, but allow that and you allow all the other bad habbits
17:26 Cprossu it's something I wanted to complain about but then thought seriously about looking at other message boards I belonged to
17:27 Yaotzin I don't really subscribe to the notion that you should hinder people because of the bad habits of others
17:27 Cprossu hell I even have that habit
17:28 Seroster Damn, new bacteria found.
17:28 Cprossu and digging through pages of unrelavent posts sucks too
17:28 Cprossu esp if the topic thread changes enough
17:28 Seroster .g halomonas titanicae
17:28 BotSteve Seroster:
17:28 Seroster Found on the hms titanic
17:28 Yaotzin Cprossu: I'm talking about adding information to the topic, not changing the topic itself

17:35 Cprossu yep
17:35 Cprossu but thats the addy
17:35 MoxieMike What would it take to fix it?
17:35 DruidicRifleman broken forum still broken
17:36 Yaotzin indeed
17:36 MoxieMike sadly i must run to class...i'll be back soon
17:36 wannabe1987 nooooo
17:37 eightbitbrad The thinking with the forum software is that it ties into WP nicely, which I think is why we're using the software we are.  I just don't think it's robust enough to handle things
17:37 MoxieMike but i'll get hints for the exam at class...or are you dreading my return, wanname1987?
17:37 Cprossu MoxieMike: possibly someone finding whatever server it runs on and restarting the software/uncorrupting the database and/or config file
17:37 wannabe1987 your leaving.  class is good :P
17:38 MoxieMike ok
17:38 MoxieMike Or would it be better to start an internal wiki from scratch?
