00:43 Toastdude Hi wannabe1987 :!
00:45 Seroster CaptainBoden, a great demo of what not to do with a lift: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQj7Y7Q8tU4&amp;feature=related
00:45 Seroster Should be mandatory to watch before operating the gg lift, eh? =P
00:49 tonsofpcs bulldozer?
00:50 tonsofpcs this is why you don't put things below big heavy things
00:52 Seroster Aye
00:54 Seroster Damn. I got... FIVE cracked teeth.
00:55 Seroster http://www.endoexperience.com/images/craze.jpg
00:56 [Python] ow ....

00:56 eadthem Seroster http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZjwR3c8yMM&amp;feature=related slow motion car bowling      got it in a link of your jack video
00:57 Seroster lwq1996, I have no idea whatsoever.
00:57 lwq1996 lol
00:57 masterofmonks I could speculate.
00:57 lwq1996 lol
00:57 Seroster What are the odds, unless your wife beats your head with a hammer?
00:59 angy_ joined #thegeekgroup
01:02 Seroster After further research craze lines do not impede function, just looks. And screw looks.
01:04 injektion joined #thegeekgroup
01:06 Druidic_Rifleman whats up
01:06 masterofmonks Seroster: It's wisdom teeth that will screw you if you don't watch out.
01:07 Seroster I find them rather idiotic
01:11 masterofmonks What the mean functionless evolutionary throwbacks to a common ancestor that that ate grasses regularly?
01:13 tlockley tonsofpcs: The huricane isn't here yet but the reality is that NYC and Long Island are gonna get slammed and we are going to end up wth a tropical storm moving into a tropical depression
01:13 masterofmonks Slammed?
01:13 tlockley but that hasnt stopped everyone from jumping staight off the deep end
01:13 masterofmonks With a cat 2?
01:13 Seroster masterofmonks, rather a play on words concidering "wisdom"
01:14 tlockley yah NYC is projected to get a low Cat3 high Cat2
01:15 masterofmonks It's goign to be a cat 1 by the time it hits.
01:15 tlockley but once it makes landfall in NYC it is going to rapidly loose steam becaise there wont be anything feeding it at that point.
01:15 tlockley but the local supermarket has been totally cleared out two days in a row
01:16 tlockley and the ferry company is "recommending" that people leave the island
01:16 masterofmonks Morons.
01:16 tlockley which is going to be good because there wont be many or those morons getting an accidents so the police and fire
01:16 tlockley will actually be available when/if we need them
01:17 tlockley I do expect to see a few houses getting struck by lightning and toatally ruining everythin
01:18 tlockley but the other side of this conversation is that I am by no means a meteroligist so for all i know everything could go toatally to shit
01:18 tlockley but that is unlikely
01:18 Thermoelectric Try getting hit by a cat 5 cyclone.
01:18 tlockley thats gotta suck
01:18 Thermoelectric .t Cyclone Yasi
01:18 BotSteve Thermoelectric: Sorry, I don't know about the 'Cyclone Yasi' timezone.
01:18 Thermoelectric Whhoops
01:18 tlockley .seen CaptainBoden
01:18 BotSteve tlockley: I last saw captainboden 81.81 hours ago at 2011-08-23 15:29:49 UTC on #thegeekgroup.  Current time: 01:18:39 UTC
01:18 Thermoelectric .g Cyclone Yasi
01:18 BotSteve Thermoelectric: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclone_Yasi
01:19 tlockley Ouch
01:19 Thermoelectric Yeah.
01:19 Seroster But in essence I can forget about my craze lines, and not run screaming to a dentist and get the lot ripped out...Right?
01:21 masterofmonks Seroster: Go run screaming to the dentist anyway.
01:21 Seroster It's still expensive.
01:21 masterofmonks Don't screw around with your teeth.
01:21 tlockley or your jaw
01:22 wannabe1987 screwing teeth?
01:22 lwq1996 im leaving to watch fnc
01:22 tlockley if your mouth is too small for wisdom teeth when the teeth come in they can completely ruin your jaw and current tooth alignment
01:22 Seroster It's the bullshit coming from the swedish rightwing, teeth are not concidered to be a part of the body.... -.-
01:23 wannabe1987 srsly
01:23 wannabe1987 bye lwq1996
01:23 tlockley then you would endup wth teeth folded over eachother which can be painful
01:23 masterofmonks I have tOr the wisdom teeth can cause the other molars to sheer.
01:24 masterofmonks Well that came out disjointed.
01:25 wannabe1987 you confused me...
01:26 Seroster He's talking about naughty again.
01:26 wannabe1987 apparently....
01:29 wannabe1987 it seems shorter when its 7p-7a...instead of 7a-7p
01:31 masterofmonks Ah hell
01:31 tonsofpcs tlockley: so they didn't shut down public transport for the island ;)
01:31 tlockley what public transport
01:31 tonsofpcs friend's boat is dry-docked in RI or CT (forget which) and he's "back on the rock"
01:31 tlockley there are busses that only run durring the day and they only service certains sections of the island
01:32 tlockley the state run ferry is planning on running all weekend
01:32 tlockley only the private ferry commpany has halted servers
01:32 tonsofpcs tlockley: yea, someone asked me if our public transit was shut down here... we have one bus that runs every 2 hours between 8am and 6pm.... in theory...
01:32 tlockley and only on sunday
01:33 tonsofpcs I get to be watching the storm and working with my boss to decide if we move our backup gear to the Tx site.
01:33 compwiz878 joined #thegeekgroup
01:33 tlockley and the pilots who fily here are already batshit crazy so this is nothing to them
01:34 tlockley but I went by the VOR station today and I showed up just as they finished saran wraping the transmitter/antenna cone
01:34 tonsofpcs lol
01:34 tonsofpcs nice. mylar cone!
01:34 tlockley fiberglass
01:35 tonsofpcs oh, well that's standard... just scheduled maintenance?
01:35 tlockley the point was to prevent the mantanance door from getting ripped open
01:35 tonsofpcs interesting...
01:35 tlockley next time I am out there ill send ya pics
01:35 masterofmonks joined #thegeekgroup
01:35 BotSteve Spatula.
01:35 tlockley but is kinda cool. the VOR station here is technically a VORTAC
01:36 tonsofpcs technically? is there a reason you aren't calling it a VORTAC?
01:36 tlockley for the sake of not confusing people
01:36 tlockley and lazyness
01:36 tlockley I have a few pilot friends who all call it a VOR even though it is listed as VORTAC
01:37 tlockley though now you have me doubting myself so am gonna see if i can dbl check that
01:37 tonsofpcs I can check it if you really care
01:38 tlockley it is indeed TACAN capable
01:39 tonsofpcs it is, Ch 109X
01:39 tlockley you fly tonsofpcs
01:39 tonsofpcs does flight sim count?
01:40 tlockley only if you use a fligh yoke and pedals
01:40 tonsofpcs no pedals :(
01:40 tonsofpcs build me some? :D
01:40 tlockley eh, close enough
01:40 tonsofpcs hey, I started playing flightsim with a numpad :-p
01:40 tlockley maybe, but i still have a few projects here i need to finish
01:41 tonsofpcs I'm of the opinion that if you can fly with a numpad without sheering your airplane in half, you can fly anything :-p
01:41 tlockley i remember playing MS flight sim one Win95
01:41 tlockley that was fun
01:41 tlockley *on
01:42 tlockley hey angy
01:42 angy hey tlockley
01:42 tlockley how the site doing?

01:44 * exor674 hugs dr_jkl <3
01:44 dr_jkl tlockley: nah, the forum will tell you to go screw yourself when i do it :)
01:44 dr_jkl you wont even notice prolly
01:44 dr_jkl exor674: <3
01:45 dr_jkl how are you?
01:45 tlockley ok
01:45 wannabe1987 hi dr_jkl
01:45 exor674 I kinda hurt just a bit, but yaknow, otherwise..
01:45 dr_jkl we're going to migrate to a new wp forum soon, this one wont be so slow
01:46 tlockley YAY! :D
01:46 dr_jkl finally have one that will do everyhing twe need it to do
01:46 angy btw dr_jkl I tried mysql on NFS, I killed it with 2 con. write :)
01:46 dr_jkl also, there are some other things which are happening which i can't talk about yet
01:46 dr_jkl but
01:46 dr_jkl i know the site's been a little unstable lately. the web team is basically doing the best we can with what we have until these other things are done
01:47 tlockley actually, out of curiosity how does one join the web team? I would love to lend a hand
01:47 dr_jkl and from the bottom of my heart, i thank all of you for being patient with it
01:47 * angy adds itself to dr_jkl appologies
01:47 tlockley I understand. It a volunteer op for most of you i assume
01:47 dr_jkl tlockley: i don't know that we _need_ anyone else right now, but i'm sure we can find something for you to do. e-mail me; jkl@thegeekgroup.org and i'll mention it at our next meeting.
01:47 tlockley ok
01:48 dr_jkl :)
01:48 dr_jkl i do some web stuff but my bread and butter is unix systems administration
01:48 dr_jkl i was a web/graphic designer, now i'm a sysadmin heh
01:48 dr_jkl and we needed a sysadmin, so.. :)
01:48 angy good reconversion ;)
01:49 tlockley ah, I am an okay sys adming but i am real good at being a code monkey
01:49 tlockley especially PHP
01:49 angy what kind of php?
01:49 dr_jkl yeah, we can find things for you to do
01:49 tlockley any kind of PHP
01:49 * dr_jkl writes perl and shell languages mostly
01:49 tlockley DB, Email, Frameworks
01:49 tlockley you name it
01:49 angy backend very highly threaded?
01:49 wannabe1987 bbl
01:50 tlockley well phps nature is that it is not thread safe IIRC
01:50 tlockley that is why many Apache MPMs dont work with it
01:50 angy *backend*
01:50 dr_jkl unless you build it w/ thread safety, it's not threadsafe.
01:50 BotSteve In the last hour, there have been 1 new posts on the Geek Group forums.  New posts made by: Radioactive on Most dangerous compounds that you have ever had to deal with.
01:50 angy that say web server build into php
01:50 tlockley ya, but most bundled or precompiled installs are not thread safe
01:51 tlockley and most devs myself included generally play with no thread safe php
01:51 tlockley but I can always learn the better way
01:51 angy my way of coding is not the better way I'm afraid
01:52 tlockley I figure if you follow KISS you are mostly safe
01:53 exor674 dr_jkl: so how is *your* back feeling?
01:54 * dr_jkl peeers over her glasses
01:54 angy ok, found a quite unused ip, I'm gong to publish code tonight
01:54 dr_jkl tlockley: remind me what your forum username is?
01:54 dr_jkl i can't brain
01:54 angy that, or play WoW
01:54 tlockley tlockley
01:54 dr_jkl odd
01:54 dr_jkl well,
01:55 dr_jkl i know why you don't have a post button
01:55 dr_jkl lol
01:55 tlockley Y?
01:55 dr_jkl :D
01:55 dr_jkl bcause your user is broken
01:55 tlockley how?
01:56 tonsofpcs because your username is "tlockley; insert into users post=no where name=tlockley" ?
01:56 tonsofpcs (or whatever the proper injection hack there is)

02:01 yNos caps lock fills me with rage.
02:01 dr_jkl yNos: my capslock is a third control key,

02:01 tonsofpcs oo, unbinding F1.  Good trick
02:01 tonsofpcs I have a PS/2 > USB adapter that binds F6 to F5 :(
02:01 yNos i swap the shift and ctrl are swapped...
02:01 yNos am too used to old sun keyboards.

03:05 yNos Cprossu:hawt
03:05 yNos i dont know how it would handle though
03:05 yNos it looks like something out of a scifi movie
03:06 Katemonster it's built around a Viper V-10 engine.
03:06 Katemonster and is ridiculous
03:06 yNos i'd rather something ala http://bestmotoreview.info/images/triumphtrackmasterstreettracker.jpg myself
03:06 Katemonster also jagubike = what in what
03:07 yNos but i have a wet spot for old brit bikes

03:09 yNos yup
03:09 Cprossu although it would be fun to die on this too
03:09 Cprossu http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ratfuML9QA&amp;feature=related
03:09 yNos notice in the vid they do not show it cornering
03:09 Cprossu ^ just because of how completely dumb it is
03:10 yNos oh, i love your optimism about riding bikes too.
03:10 Cprossu or this one either -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDWqJe1dCgY
03:10 Cprossu came from too many years of patching up bikes took less time than patching up friends.
03:10 Cprossu ^, etc
03:11 exor674 okay fuck it, I am GOING to BED
03:12 yNos i need to do the same
03:13 Katemonster hopefully not for the same reasons
03:13 Cprossu lol
03:13 Cprossu I need to find out what processors are on these other motherboards
03:14 Katemonster my taste in bikes is something more like this http://www.pashnit.com/pics/sidecars/Ural-jump.jpg
03:14 Katemonster but i'm a huge military dork so my opinion doesn't count.

03:16 yNos nmuch, been a while DR
03:16 Katemonster lol
03:16 yNos hows it going?
03:17 Katemonster i will be happy owning any variation of the R71.
03:17 yNos If they updated it and put overhead valves and a solid transmisssion in it, they'd be great
03:18 yNos oh, and if they didnt use shit pot metal
03:18 Katemonster lol
03:18 yNos they look badass, dont get me wrong.. but the quality is.... questionable
03:18 yNos there is a guy on the other side of my small town that has one.
03:18 yNos rides it all year
03:19 yNos i yern for that
03:19 yNos snowstorm:"I think i'll go for a run to the store"

03:21 yNos erm...

03:22 yNos i havent worked on an XA though
03:22 Katemonster i'm not an expert on motorcycles in any way shape or form.
03:22 yNos i have worked on urals and dneprs and indians
03:22 Katemonster i think the XA is a Harley clone of the R71 though
03:23 yNos different engine.
03:23 yNos oh
03:23 yNos wait
03:23 Katemonster ah
03:23 yNos it is a flat twin
03:24 yNos i am not a fan of side-valve engines..
03:24 yNos they burn oil like mad.
03:24 yNos because if your not burning it, you are leaking it. if you arent doing either...  you are out.
03:25 yNos this looks like fun : http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/mcy/2567948365.html
03:26 Katemonster lol
03:26 yNos wtb: size 15.5 alpinestars motard boots.
03:27 yNos yes ^ cl bike is a 2 stroke.. yes above i was complaining about burning oil...
03:27 yNos but they do it with intended design.. sidevalvers usually do it because they have no other choice...

03:46 wannabe1987 so the tilt-a-whilr isn't as much fun when your big sister (who weights 150+lbs) isn't on it...
03:46 NeWtoz WTLJ*
03:46 tonsofpcs WTLJ is on 24.
03:46 tonsofpcs anyway, take your rabit ears, pull them out all the way, and make them horizontal.  ----.----
03:47 NeWtoz it's on 24 54.2
03:47 wannabe1987 true or false: If you mix orange juice and gasoline, you can create Napalm - a dangerous bomb and also a military weapon.
03:47 NeWtoz well, 54.x
03:47 tonsofpcs turn them so they point east-by-east-north-east / west-by-west-south-west (so that if you look over the middle, it looks south-by-south-south-east or north-by-north-north-west)
03:47 tonsofpcs then rescan.
03:47 Katemonster false.  OJ != gelling agent

03:48 NeWtoz pulls out his android compass
03:48 Katemonster if you want i'll grab my FM and tell you what things it says you *can* use to gel gasoline?
03:48 tonsofpcs wannabe1987: not sure, but if you mix orange juice (4oz), rum (1/2 oz), and vodka (1/2 oz), you get a brass monkey.  A true funky monkey.
03:48 wannabe1987 brass monkey?
03:49 EntKitty wannabe1987: false

03:52 egrsteve pan galatic gargle blaster anyone?
03:52 BotSteve egrsteve: I have the following messages for you:
03:52 BotSteve At 23 Aug 20:26Z, Cprossu asked me to tell egrsteve http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1tEzpYoG-U <- check the computer museum and the autopsy table for one of these disks please (First rev 5,10,20 megabyte 8" bernouli disks which fit the Dubner 20-K)
03:52 BotSteve At 23 Aug 20:32Z, Cprossu asked me to tell egrsteve also bring up the 20-K and the 'newer' bernouli drive, hopefully you can find a scsi cord that goes with it somewhere. hook it up, cross your fingers, and see if it boots up then.
03:52 tonsofpcs (as many as 5 or 7 really)
03:53 NeWtoz I really should just make my own antenna
03:53 tonsofpcs is he still #(%*( with the dubners as CGs?
03:53 egrsteve i think so
03:53 tonsofpcs NeWtoz: you should.  Make a 2-bay bowtie with no reflectors.  If it isn't up to snuff, add two more bays, possibly crossing (depending n what you're going for)
03:54 tonsofpcs anyway, http://www.antennapoint.com/antennas/show?id=49505&amp;commit=Search
03:55 NeWtoz yup, was looking at a map just like that
03:56 NeWtoz I really just want to pick up FOX for NFL games\

03:57 tonsofpcs oh, wow
03:57 tonsofpcs really long rabit ears
03:58 NeWtoz I'm in GR, CMU is in Mt Pleasant
03:58 tonsofpcs shorten each dipole to about 1/2 what it is now.  Also maybe turn it counterclockwise a hair.
03:59 lwq_laptop joined #thegeekgroup
03:59 NeWtoz there is no way I could get CMU from here
03:59 tonsofpcs also, what converter box / tv set is it?
03:59 tonsofpcs 1) we're trying to get you fox.  2) wanna bet? :)
03:59 lwq_laptop anyone know how to unzip a tar.bz2 file on ubuntu
03:59 NeWtoz well, I could, but probably don't need to get it
03:59 lwq_laptop ok irc is no help
03:59 NeWtoz when I have a nice PBS right next to me
04:00 tonsofpcs lwq_laptop: yes.
04:00 NeWtoz I have rabbit ears directly connected to a digital tvtuner card
04:00 lwq_laptop do u know how to un tar a tar.bz2 file
04:00 tonsofpcs lwq_laptop: tar -xjvf
04:00 Katemonster http://cryoflesh.com/shop/dune-skirt-p-949.html
04:00 NeWtoz man tar ;)
04:01 tonsofpcs NeWtoz: does it give you any sort of 'tuning' or 'signal strength' indication?
04:01 lwq_laptop ok it says access denied
04:01 tonsofpcs ok, overall length should be ~30", it seems.
04:02 tonsofpcs lwq_laptop: then you're doing something wrong.
04:02 NeWtoz I could tune, but that would be a slight pain in the software
04:02 tonsofpcs lwq_laptop: man tar
04:02 NeWtoz I'll get this, just need some time for positioning
04:02 tonsofpcs (that's 15" for each element)
04:02 NeWtoz I need taller ceilings
04:03 tonsofpcs why?
04:03 NeWtoz well, I don't, I just need to move my antenna
04:03 NeWtoz less talk more doing I guess
04:03 tonsofpcs your antenna shoould be horizontal.
04:04 NeWtoz it doesn't go horizontal, not without modification
04:04 NeWtoz I'm getting there
04:04 tonsofpcs wtf? got a pic of this thing?
04:04 NeWtoz I said it was cheap ;)
04:04 lwq_laptop GRRR...DAMN WOM THING WOULNT OPEN
04:05 tonsofpcs the $free antenna that came with my [TV|USB tuner|converter box|coathanger] can go horizontal....
04:05 lwq_laptop tonsofpcs any program i can use
04:05 NeWtoz http://www.amazon.com/RCA-ANT111-Basic-Indoor-Antenna/dp/tags-on-product/B000HKGK8Y
04:05 tonsofpcs lwq_laptop: tar.
04:07 tonsofpcs NeWtoz: oh, just turn it so that if you're looking through the box, you're pointing at the Fox station.  Adjusting the dipoles to be abt 90 deg from each other (45 off horizontal) at about 10" might help too... (in which case, you want the rabbit ears side towards the fox station when looking through the box)
04:10 tonsofpcs anyway, search amazon for "bowtie antenna", then just build one out of 4 coat hangers, some wire, and a piece of 1x3
04:11 NeWtoz yeah, that is my next plan
04:12 NeWtoz if I don't get all the stations I want
04:12 tonsofpcs you're never going to get all of them at once
04:12 tonsofpcs well, not without a lot of hacks
04:13 tonsofpcs if you want to throw money at it, I can recommend a few possible filter companies.  Figure $300+ per channel  (or block that comes from the same direction with nothing else between)
04:13 NeWtoz awesome!
04:18 lwq_laptop ok i got it to a tar file...now what do  i doo
04:19 lwq_laptop tonsofpcs....i got it into a tar file...how do i open it now
04:21 tonsofpcs man bunzip
04:21 tonsofpcs err
04:21 tonsofpcs man tar
04:21 tonsofpcs seriously.  The system V manual 2' from me explains tar.  It's not a new concept at all.  It's not hard to use.
04:22 lwq_laptop im not using a program....i messed around and somehow got it to tar
04:23 Cprossu tonsofpcs : unisys branded copy or older?

15:18 masterofmonks An observation about that I can make... but in that other channel.

19:02 Seroster Yeah, Ive seen bridge rectifiers
19:02 Seroster But not individual rapping for germanium diodes

20:14 SparkyProjects Seroster, i think you need to use that  $50 to get a better camera :P
20:14 SparkyProjects The transistor with the plastic cover, is that close to the flyback, if so, that would be the one to use for the circuit
20:14 SparkyProjects And yeah, i remember the variable inductors, the brass 'screwdriver' just allows the core to move the full length of the coil
20:15 SparkyProjects Contactor and overload
20:15 SparkyProjects Klockner Moeller, we use a lot of those
20:15 Seroster Lol SparkyProjects =P
20:16 Seroster A decent camera for 50 bucks, nah
20:16 Seroster And I need that 50 for food
20:16 SparkyProjects What is that board ?

20:17 SparkyProjects ah, just read the description, transistor for vfd
20:18 Seroster I suggest you allow captation s
20:19 Seroster or captions, rather.
20:20 SparkyProjects Is that a cover on the vfd heatsink ?
20:20 Seroster I think that is just a connection from the vfd to the case

21:32 Seroster Yaay
21:33 Sasha_ Seroster: I bought a cordless screwdriver, some clamps, some LED lights, some storage stuff, and FINALLY a wire stripper, plus a bunch of other stuff
21:33 Sasha_ Soo happy!
21:34 Seroster Wire stripper?
21:34 Seroster Fucken amateur!
21:35 Sasha_ :P
21:45 SparkyProjects Seroster, although i prefer to use sidecutters to strip wire, there are times when my auto wire strippers come in handy, but i've also used a knife or even my teeth before :P
21:45 Seroster Pft =P
21:45 masterofmonks SparkyProjects: On the subject of using teeth.
21:45 Seroster Yeah, teeth.
21:45 Seroster I can do that too
21:45 Seroster But I know i shouldnt =p
21:46 masterofmonks Nothing is quite as agonizing as the senstion that stranded wire makes as it passes across your teeth.
21:46 Seroster This board got steel braces all around
21:46 Seroster soldered in
21:46 Seroster About a tablespoon of solder =O
21:46 Seroster Damn this is old
21:46 masterofmonks Seroster: Save the solder.
21:46 masterofmonks You can easily turn it into solder leaf, and use it for your smaller componants.
21:47 SparkyProjects masterofmonks, or the sensation of one strand stabbing your gums :P
21:47 masterofmonks SparkyProjects: That one too.
21:47 masterofmonks I know some guys carry a dull pocket knife for stripping wire, but for me, I tend to prefer the precision of a very sharp one.
21:48 masterofmonks Or you can use a lighter to burn the insulation off.
21:48 masterofmonks Though that is really not good for you.
21:49 SparkyProjects I can understand that, dull enough to not cut into the conductor, but sharp enough to cut the insulation
21:49 masterofmonks Yeah, but for me it isn't worth it.
21:51 SparkyProjects Ever tried stripping the flexible telephone wire which is a strand of very thin wire tape around a nylon cord ?
21:51 SparkyProjects USe a lighter and you melt the copper :P
21:52 EntKitty SparkyProjects: what kind of crazy lighter do you have?!
21:52 Seroster Lol
21:52 Seroster Erm
21:52 Seroster In front of my keyboard is a vise with a pcb and a lit candle
21:52 SparkyProjects It's not the lighter, it's the very thin copper, plus you set the nylon  on fire which helps to melt it
21:52 Seroster I feel my hair is in danger.
21:53 EntKitty SparkyProjects: I've not seen a lighter that makes a hot enough flame to melt copper
21:53 EntKitty at that point it's pretty much always called a torch
21:53 Seroster masterofmonks, ofc I save the tin. Here I got a nice blend of 40/60, silver and some scrap pb.
21:53 EntKitty and thin copper is hard to melt, too
21:53 Seroster EntKitty, Is steel wool hard to burn?
21:54 Seroster Copper melts before steel
21:54 EntKitty Seroster: yes, it is, if you're using an ordinary old lighter to do it
21:54 Seroster And steel wool melts in a hurry
21:54 EntKitty not over any lighter's flame I've seen
21:54 Seroster EntKitty.. Then I suggest you go outside to a burn safe place, and hold a lighter under a piece of triple zero steel wool
21:54 EntKitty Actually, most lighters won't even get hot enough to give you more than a little blister f you hold a finger in the flame
21:55 Seroster I also suggest you wearing cotton when you do it and have a bottle of water handy
21:55 EntKitty Seroster: you mean wool, right?
21:55 EntKitty wool is flame retardant
21:55 Seroster Steel wool.
21:55 EntKitty no, wool from a sheep or goat
21:55 Seroster And cotton is flame resiliant
21:56 EntKitty spun into threads and woven
21:56 SparkyProjects entKitty, this wire is thin copper round a nylon core, the nylon helps with the heat
21:56 EntKitty SparkyProjects: how thin?
21:56 Seroster 50+ gauge
21:57 SparkyProjects If you have a spare telephone cord (like tehe coiled ones), take it apart, then get a lighter and do a test of getting the insulation off
21:57 EntKitty Seroster: steel wool has a flash point of 250C
21:57 EntKitty none of my lighters get that hot
21:57 Seroster 250c?
21:58 Seroster Your lighters don't reach 250?
21:58 Seroster In that case you should go get a bic, they get far beyond 750.
21:58 Seroster Maybe you mean 2500, in wich case yes, you are right, if you got a two kilo lump of steel.
21:58 EntKitty My lighters get pretty hot if you stick whatever right in the perfect point in the flame
21:58 EntKitty but most of te flame is relatively cool, regardless of your lighter
21:58 Seroster So. You say I can't light steel wool with a lighter?
21:59 Seroster Wanna bet on it?
21:59 EntKitty not with my lighters you can't
21:59 Seroster My bet, let's say $500
21:59 Seroster Are you in?
21:59 EntKitty do you have my lighter?
21:59 Seroster I will do it with a regular match
22:01 EntKitty another thing to consider: how fine is the steel wool you're using?
22:01 Seroster Triple zero
22:02 Seroster Any steel wool burns, really.
22:05 EntKitty Only thing I can find of steel wool burning is really fine steel wool
22:05 Seroster masterofmonks, am I being trolled by this guy? I can't tell.
