00:03 Ponko he has 20-21 years over you mom
00:03 tonsofpcs hey, Cprossu around?
00:03 tonsofpcs Bob Orban on live.twit.tv for two hours
00:03 tonsofpcs (as in Orban Optimod)
00:04 masterofmonks Yes, but the technology in televisions did not signifigantly change until I was in my late teens.
00:04 Ponko late teens like 17-19?
00:04 Ponko he was older than that
00:04 masterofmonks lwq1996 is 14
00:04 * Ponko facepalm
00:05 tonsofpcs egrsteve|away: ^^ same thing I said to Cprossu
00:05 Ponko not what i meant
00:05 tonsofpcs masterofmonks: technology in televisions?
00:05 masterofmonks When I was 14, the televisions I grew up with were not sifigantly different than the ones lwq1996's father had when he was 14.
00:06 Ponko yeah that's my point
00:06 tonsofpcs you mean a CRT with X/Y deflection and SMPTE-C phosphors?
00:06 tonsofpcs or did you not have chroma yet?
00:07 masterofmonks Actually the first TV I had was an early 70's 13 inch monochromatic television.
00:07 Ponko was HDMI and Scart leads available back then
00:08 lwq1996 nope
00:08 masterofmonks Fuck no.
00:08 Ponko well then there you go
00:08 lwq1996 scart came around like maby 1990
00:08 LemPhone .w SCART
00:08 BotSteve "SCART (from Syndicat des Constructeurs d'Appareils Radiorécepteurs et Téléviseurs, Radio and Television Receiver Manufacturers' Association) is a French-originated standard and associated 21-pin connector for connecting audio-visual (AV) equipment together." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCART
00:08 LemPhone bah, sif not have the date in there
00:08 lwq1996 .g date scart was invented
00:08 BotSteve lwq1996: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox
00:08 Ponko yeah because the SNES has a Scart adaptor
00:09 lwq1996 wtf
00:09 Ponko lol
00:09 LemPhone rofl
00:09 lwq1996 i dont want a fucking xbox link
00:09 tonsofpcs SCART lol
00:09 lwq1996 botsteve you fail
00:09 LemPhone .g date scart was invented
00:09 BotSteve LemPhone: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox
00:09 LemPhone ROFL!
00:09 lwq1996 and scart is only used in europe if im right
00:09 LemPhone yup
00:09 tonsofpcs lwq1996: generally.
00:10 Ponko red yellow white?
00:10 * tonsofpcs has used about 4 SCART connectors, total
00:10 LemPhone seen it on a few things here, but only european brands
00:10 Ponko hmm that's odd
00:10 LemPhone also Red, Yellow and White is normally Composite video, not component
00:11 LemPhone component is Red, Green & blue
00:11 masterofmonks Ponko: the problem I see is this, some people get to a certain age and decide that they don't need to learn anything else, everything they will ever need to knoe they have already lerned. Unforutnately this age is often right about 18.
00:11 tonsofpcs component is Luma, bed difference, and blue difference
00:11 tonsofpcs *red difference
00:11 Ponko yeah that's true masterofmonks
00:11 lwq1996 oh, stupid japanises labled it component not composite
00:11 Ponko it's AV component
00:12 Ponko i assume
00:12 lwq1996 i was hooking up a vcr
00:12 Ponko when did VCR come into the scene
00:12 injektion 80s
00:12 masterofmonks lwq1996: a VCR?
00:12 injektion Either the 70s or 80s
00:12 lwq1996 well vcr/dvd player
00:13 lwq1996 yes VCR
00:13 y007ghg7- https://www.google.com/search?q=bullet+speed
00:13 BotSteve Title: bullet speed - Google Search
00:13 Ponko a DVD player?
00:13 y007ghg7- i loled at the best guess
00:13 LemPhone reasonably sure it's red, blue + vsync, green + hsync
00:13 Ponko what about Blue Ray
00:13 lwq1996 nope not blueray
00:13 lwq1996 how long was blue ray around?
00:13 Ponko lol i know i was just saying
00:13 Ponko what did Video kill?
00:14 masterofmonks The radio star
00:14 masterofmonks That was the virse music video played on MTV
00:14 LemPhone bluray is still very much around lwq
00:14 tonsofpcs LemPhone: sync is on the luma.
00:14 lwq1996 no i mean when did it become wildly know and available
00:14 Ponko and DVD has killed VCR
00:14 LemPhone .w component video
00:14 BotSteve "Component video is a video signal that has been split into two or more component channels." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Component_video
00:14 tonsofpcs RGB component (when existing) either has separate composite sync, HV seperate sync, or sync on green
00:14 LemPhone bah
00:15 Ponko do you go into a mainstream shop and find videos anymore?
00:15 Ponko ok in pawn shops and that
00:15 LemPhone not in a freaking long time
00:15 LemPhone because I download them
00:16 LemPhone the movie studios won't give me it how I want it, so I choose to ascertain it by other means
00:16 Ponko yeah but if you do it the correct way
00:16 LemPhone correct way...?
00:16 Ponko and you do what you like i'm not saying that it's good or bad
00:17 Ponko as in you buy it legit
00:17 LemPhone I don't
00:18 Ponko and why
00:18 Ponko because buying it legit costs too much
00:18 LemPhone because I cannot legitimately buy a 1080p movie download that I then own, and not have to put up with a fucked DRM system
00:19 Ponko no i meant buying the hard copy
00:19 LemPhone I don't buy the hard copy
00:19 Ponko as in buying the dvd from HMV or Amazon
00:20 Ponko and why because it's extortionately priced right?
00:20 LemPhone nope
00:20 LemPhone as I said
00:20 Ponko yeah i was about to say
00:21 Ponko LemPhone: you're in Aus right?
00:21 LemPhone I dislike not being able to buy a digital download that is decent quality and doesn't have some stupid DRM system
00:21 LemPhone yeah
00:21 LemPhone and download limits really isn't a valid argument here anymore
00:22 Ponko well you're lucky because apparently the US are gonna lock down on stuff like that
00:22 LemPhone download limts are huge here now
00:22 LemPhone oh they are valiantly trying to do the same here as well Ponko
00:22 Ponko and it's hot at Xmas
00:22 LemPhone but our government is not quite so corrupt yet...
00:23 Ponko yeah corrupt as in run buy bloated coorperations
00:23 LemPhone yup
00:23 LemPhone anyways, time to log off, later all
00:24 Ponko in my eyes a government should be like robin hood but in a legal sense

00:41 tonsofpcs aww, mom is being nice today
00:41 masterofmonks You are muted for five minutes. if you continue on this subject after you are unmuted you will be banned.
00:42 Toastdude By the way, mystery05, I was being sarcastic.
00:43 Ponko man why do i love commentating over soccer matches?
00:44 tonsofpcs 1) s/soccer/football/  2) because you wish you could play? :D
00:44 Ponko retort to 2 yes i wish i could play i wish my ankle was strong enough to play again
00:46 Ponko mystery05 a troll masterofmonks?
00:46 masterofmonks .d trolling
00:47 Ponko so yes
00:47 masterofmonks Probably.
00:47 Ponko anyway
00:47 tonsofpcs Ponko: wait, aren't you playing american gridiron football?
00:47 Ponko yes
00:48 tonsofpcs so your ankle is strong enough for gridiron but not association???
00:48 Ponko actually yes
00:48 tonsofpcs interesting.  How does that work?
00:49 Ponko idk ask my doctor
00:49 Ponko i asked him and he said i was fine to play any sport
00:49 Ponko but he said how if i went back to association it would be made worse
00:50 Ponko my ex considered it a miracle
00:50 tonsofpcs weird
00:51 Ponko i had a massive hole in my right foot about 1/8 or 1/6 of an inch and yes the nail being removed hurt but what hurt more i lost a decent pair of trainers
00:51 masterofmonks ugh
00:52 masterofmonks kitten farted.
00:52 Ponko and they predicted it was gonna heal in 2 months
00:52 Ponko lol
00:53 Ponko but it completely healed in 2 weeks and there's NO PHYSICAL SCAR
00:53 Ponko again my ex pronounced it a miracle
00:55 tonsofpcs wow
00:58 Noise_Marine I like how they predict like 1 one month and you always heal 3x quicker XD
00:58 Ponko exactly but it's weird to have NO SCAR at all
00:59 * Ponko looks at his knuckles and clenches his fists to see metal blades apear
00:59 Noise_Marine lol
01:00 Noise_Marine only life threatening wounds i had heal with scars....
01:00 Ponko and nope i do not look like Baraka from Mortal Kombat
01:00 Noise_Marine think its trying to teach me something
01:00 Ponko lol
01:00 reesk joined #thegeekgroup
01:00 Noise_Marine I swear the woodsplitter accident was a accident
01:01 Ponko but my NF was painful and removed a large amount of my right leg and yet no scars
01:01 Noise_Marine maybe your just weird :P
01:01 Ponko come take me to your school wheelchaired Patrick Stewart
01:02 Ponko MAYBE weird i though i WAS weird
01:02 Ponko thought*
01:02 Noise_Marine depends on your outlook
01:03 Ponko true
01:03 Noise_Marine my friends dont think i'm weird but the chicks do lol
01:03 Ponko it's defined by how others see you
01:04 Noise_Marine they dont get how you can justify 400$ on a computer part XD
01:04 Noise_Marine it was pretty didnt work....
01:06 Ponko or how you got a mullet for a bet and donated the money to charity
01:06 Noise_Marine lol
01:07 Ponko what is your religous views
01:07 Noise_Marine me catholic
01:08 Noise_Marine but i'm pretty open
01:08 Ponko aha
01:08 Ponko well what my priest told me was that you need spirit to read the bible but sometimes you need 2 spirits to read it
01:09 masterofmonks .wik two spirit
01:09 BotSteve "Two-Spirit People (also Two Spirit or Twospirit), is an English term that emerged in 1990 out of the third annual inter-tribal Native American/First Nations gay/lesbian American conference in Winnipeg." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two_spirit
01:09 Ponko the spirit of god and the spirit of irish whiskey
01:09 Noise_Marine LMAO
01:10 Ponko well there's a social club connected to the church
01:10 Ponko basically a bar
01:10 Ponko obviously it's seperate but you get the idea
01:10 Noise_Marine ya
01:10 Ponko but where's hell
01:11 Ponko heaven is in the skies aledgedly
01:12 Ponko but hell is in the centre of the earth
01:12 Ponko or was it the sun
01:13 Noise_Marine earth
01:14 Ponko and people are buried six feet below the surface of the earth to be closer to god
01:15 Ponko granted some are cremated but the become closer to god
01:15 Ponko hell is down heaven is up
01:15 Ponko it's confusing the way to go to heaven in the afterlife you go down to go up
01:16 Ponko ANYWAY
01:17 Noise_Marine well the world is backwards in its thinking...
01:17 Ponko lol
01:17 Ponko that it is
01:17 Ponko but hell could be the sun and what's hotter than the sun
01:18 Ponko apart from Megan Fox
01:18 Noise_Marine a green star....
01:18 Ponko well hell could be there
01:18 Ponko heaven though
01:19 Ponko maybe heaven you are over looking a world that's ideal to you
01:21 Ponko my idea of heaven would be me watching a load of football matches that are happening in a subbuteo Scale but the ball is proportionate to the players
01:25 Ponko i could go into VAST details but it's possibly endless lol
01:27 wannabe1987 joined #thegeekgroup

01:29 wannabe1987 hi
01:29 sndwrx hi
01:30 Toastdude Wannabe!
01:30 Toastdude sndwrx!
01:30 wannabe1987 need thermostat, resistor and motor.  for heat.
01:30 sndwrx Sounds about right.
01:31 sndwrx Have you tried the blower with a new resistor, though?
01:31 sndwrx Just for shits 'n grins to see if it works.
01:31 Toastdude When I saw "resistor and motor," I thought of dynamic braking...........
01:31 wannabe1987 no, but we hooked the motor to a DC power supply and it shorted the power supply
01:31 sndwrx ah, okay.
01:32 sndwrx How many amps is the power supply capable of providing?
01:32 wannabe1987 but the rockford advanced auto didn't have a reistor, motor OR thermostat for a 97 ford.   so.....we couldn't do anything.  except he *did* pump my tire back up....
01:32 wannabe1987 you know, i don't know
01:33 sndwrx k
01:33 sndwrx Power supply could have died if it didn't have enough oomph behind it.

03:44 sndwrx hi hopstafarian.
03:45 hopstafarian sndwrx, hey how is the day/night/evening treating you..?
03:45 sndwrx Not bad.  You?
03:46 hopstafarian sndwrx, meh, dealing with some technology issues that are leading me the looong way around, but basically good...what's new and exciting..?
03:47 sndwrx What are you working on?
03:50 Ponko you got any grapes
03:50 hopstafarian sndwrx, an ordering/delivery system for a non computer friendly (though not TOO industrial) environs, based on web DB tech (php, mysql) system, using touchscreen, integrated unit, POS terminal...and yes, POS was intended to be a double entendchrome
03:51 hopstafarian sndwrx, err, minus the chrome...
03:52 * sndwrx snickers.
03:52 sndwrx What are you using for touch screen?
03:52 hopstafarian i think i inadvertently effed the bios..was working when i left for work, but not when i get home...and can't recall what i did..
03:52 hopstafarian oy
03:53 hopstafarian sndwrx, an elo made system that was customized for ibm...surepos 500/600 series model 4846-565, to be exact//
03:54 * sndwrx nods.
03:54 hopstafarian sndwrx, i think it might been a sensor firmware update that had something embedded that impacted the bios eeprom?
03:55 hopstafarian sndwrx, not even sure i'm making sense at this point...
03:56 sndwrx So, are you utilizing the card reader and printer on it, then?
03:57 hopstafarian sndwrx, no, msr has been disconnected, clean install from a shredded drive, no printer, as far as it knows..
03:57 sndwrx holy mackrel, how many NICs does that have?
03:57 hopstafarian sndwrx, msr driver never dl'd or install. for all intents and purposes
03:58 sndwrx What OS are you using?
03:58 Ponko http://www.weebls-stuff.com/songs/footy/ sndwrx
03:58 BotSteve Title: footy - Weebl's Stuff
03:58 hopstafarian sndwrx, one ethernet, then splitting of to network with other components...
03:58 sndwrx oh.  I'm looking at a really tiny picture of it, and it looks like there are at least three, if not five, NICs.
03:58 sndwrx haha.
03:58 sndwrx I thought it to be strange.
04:01 sndwrx What OS are you using on it?
04:01 wannabe1987 joined #thegeekgroup
04:02 hopstafarian sndwrx, this is why i suspect the eeprom...at bios boot, even when i couldn't get the os to recognize the ts, (though i eventually did using xp...but the networking is fine and on a com5 port, ),, i was able to double tap the screen instead of the double tapping the delete key, and the bios config would come up...no more...the point being that it doesn't recognize it at the bios level anymore, and it did...am i right in thinkin
04:02 hopstafarian g that i need to start with the eeprom from scratch?
04:02 * wannabe1987 gets food $$ from the gov't now :D
04:04 sndwrx If it recognized the touch at the BIOS, then I'd tend to think so.
04:04 sndwrx Although I've never worked with those.
04:05 sndwrx If it was working, why did you upgrade?
04:05 sndwrx It's not as if there are a whole lot of additional features to be had on an infrared touch interface.  :P
04:05 hopstafarian sndwrx, ty, for agreeing...i guess that's all i was looking for...lol..
04:06 hopstafarian sndwrx, exactly...
04:06 sndwrx So you had to resort to XP.
04:06 sndwrx What were you using prior?
04:07 hopstafarian sndwrx, actually, if i could circumvent windows altogether and knew enough linux, i would love that...was the original plan, but a little too proprietary, and my linuxfu is weaker than most...
04:08 hopstafarian sndwrx, so much more elegantly integrated on the gui level, though some obvious issues there as well..
04:08 sndwrx I installed touch screen kiosks in a major basketball arena.
04:08 sndwrx Used Ubuntu for that.
04:08 wannabe1987 o.O
04:08 Sgt_Lemming http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/90/USS_Independence_LCS-2_at_pierce.jpg <--- so awesome

04:09 hopstafarian sndwrx, couldn't get ubunt to load...only suse with a little tweaking, and fedora "verne" right ootb
04:10 sndwrx What kind of tweaking was necessary for SUSE?
04:11 * wannabe1987 's sister gets to check out a grad school program at UoM tomorrow
04:12 hopstafarian sndwrx, safe driver setting for the install (that was for 12.1, 11.2 worked with out the tweak)
04:12 hopstafarian wannabe1987, u of manchester?
04:12 wannabe1987 no....uni of michigan
04:13 sndwrx huh...
04:13 hopstafarian wannabe1987, oh, sorry...product of the west coast, i'm afraid...please excuse the ig...
04:14 wannabe1987 its ok.  i'm a michigander (?michiganian?) through and through...:P
04:14 sndwrx Not to encourage the use of Ubuntu, but I find it strange that it wouldn't work.
04:14 wannabe1987 in fact...i stopped at the lab today :D
04:14 sndwrx wannabe1987: Michigander.
04:14 wannabe1987 thank you
04:15 Sgt_Lemming ffs, just use Debian and be done with it!
04:15 sndwrx Well yeah, as far as I'm concerned.
04:15 sndwrx Debian is my preference.
04:15 sndwrx I'm within arm's reach of two laptops with Debian on them.
04:15 hopstafarian wannabe1987, oh, sorry...product of the west coast, i'm afraid...please excuse the ig...)
04:15 sndwrx I've been building Debian systems out the ears to replace systems at the library.  :P
04:16 sndwrx If it isn't Debian then it's FreeBSD or Gentoo.
04:16 wannabe1987 ahhh so *thats* what you're doing overthere :P
04:16 hopstafarian i agree ubuntu is my work machine, and centos is my server ("my other work machine")_"
04:16 sndwrx wannabe1987: What?
04:16 wannabe1987 yes
04:16 sndwrx Ubuntu!=Debian
04:17 wannabe1987 don't mind me, i'm just the peanut gallery
04:17 hopstafarian sndwrx, ubuntu = debian...that was my point as well...also centos=debian
04:17 sndwrx no.
04:17 sndwrx Not at all.
04:17 Ponko http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_72979&amp;src_vid=JxRw1LVenGA&amp;feature=iv&amp;v=8X66_tkXMQM
04:17 sndwrx CentOS is based on RedHat.
04:17 BotSteve Title: Happy Meal Time - Epic Meal Time - YouTube
04:18 sndwrx Ubuntu used Debian as a base originally, but with every release, as far as I'm concerned, they stray further from Debian.
04:19 hopstafarian sndwrx, in terms of stability being the "prime directive" you mean?
04:19 sndwrx Regarding CentOS, I'm speaking in terms that it isn't remotely related to Debian.
04:20 hopstafarian sndwrx, i've been misguided then...damn you, wikipedia..!
04:20 wannabe1987 ....
04:20 wannabe1987 theres where you went wrong
04:20 wannabe1987 getting your info from wiki!
04:21 hopstafarian wannabe1987, lol, herein like the joke..
04:21 hopstafarian *lies
04:21 sndwrx Yeah, no, CentOS was derived from RedHat to offer a free platform.
04:21 eadthem joined #thegeekgroup
04:21 wannabe1987 hi eadthem
04:21 wannabe1987 Toastdude
04:21 wannabe1987 save me
04:22 sndwrx hopstafarian: So how rugged is this environment?
04:22 hopstafarian sndwrx,  i understood that is was derived from rhel in concept, but implementation in terms of kernel owed more to debian...? i can still apt-get?
04:24 sndwrx I suppose in a convoluted way you can.
04:24 sndwrx Otherwise CentOS typically uses YUM.
04:25 hopstafarian sndwrx,  not terribly, and i looked into the tablet implementation, but was a little overpriced for the concept that we were/are trying to prove, plus when it came to the roi, i A) knew a guy, B) did the math on one power cord to the unit vs the cost of damage from butterfingers, added to the cost of theft//
04:26 * sndwrx nods.
04:26 sndwrx That was my next question:  How much was that POS?
04:27 Ponko OMG I FLIPPING LOVE EPIC MEAL TI<E
04:27 hopstafarian sndwrx,  i paid 500 per
04:28 wannabe1987 .c 8*12
04:28 BotSteve 96
04:28 sndwrx Used or refurb, I presume?
04:28 wannabe1987 96 cookies, eh?
04:28 hopstafarian sndwrx,  i paid 500 per
04:28 hopstafarian sndwrx, used a little, and refurbed by me...
04:29 hopstafarian sndwrx, so i got a deal
04:30 sndwrx Yeah, not terrible I s'pose.
04:30 sndwrx Probably cheaper than, or about the same price as, putting a system together.
04:31 hopstafarian sndwrx, you mean a consumer level system?
04:32 Ponko http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2MUYs9mw9o&amp;feature=mfu_in_order&amp;list=UL i love it
04:32 BotSteve Title: Super Pastry Cake - Epic Meal Time - YouTube
04:32 sndwrx No, I mean assembling individual parts--a small form factor pc, display and touch overlay of some sort.
04:33 Ponko sndwrx would you eat any of that stuff
04:33 sndwrx You could get a small Pegasus board with dual-core Atom processor, 2GB ram and 160GB hdd for $150 or so and an Acer 23" touch screen for $200 or less.
04:33 wannabe1987 guess whose pants for work tomorrow are at her parents house?  me.  guess who has to go there tomorrow before working and get them?  me.  thankfully my clients house is 5 minuts from my parents house!
04:34 sndwrx Or get an overlay like a NextWindow to put over a standard monitor.
04:34 sndwrx There's always the MSi Wind Top and its knock offs for $300-$500
04:35 sndwrx And with all of those options you're not dealing with /quite/ as proprietary of hardware.
04:35 hopstafarian sndwrx,  i did think about that...but this is an integrated unit that requires a single power cord and draw plug into one of two outlets that already is a little overstressed...so subtract from that roi the cost of me having to walk them through resetting a circuit breaker 5 times a week, as opposed to paying a competent electrician to add a whole new circuit...still seems a wash to me..
04:36 sndwrx That's probably worth it alone, yeah.
04:38 sndwrx Ponko: I'm only as far as the bacon and it's already disgusting.  Not to mention those guys are idiots.
04:38 hopstafarian sndwrx, good advice, and i'll reconsider...but really, we're talking about a quarter  gallon of liquid/meat juices max  exposure to any given station per hour, in a butcher shop that never closes, not even on christmas..
04:39 sndwrx You said it wasn't very volatile I thought.  :P
04:39 wannabe1987 mmmmm butcher shop juices :P:P:P:P
04:39 hopstafarian sndwrx, sorry different rating scale, i guess..let me recalibrate...
04:40 Ponko sndwrx:  they're flipping hilarious you ever watched jackass that's pretty much them but with food
04:40 hopstafarian sndwrx, in light of recent conversation, i would have to say 'oops'//
04:40 sndwrx Would capacitive interface be better suited than infrared?
04:40 sndwrx Then you can put a skin over the unit.
04:41 sndwrx Whereas with infrared, you may or may not be able to stretch a skin over it without affecting the location readings.
04:42 sndwrx Ponko: Sorry, I really don't find them that entertaining.
04:43 hopstafarian sndwrx, though while that may make a diff in the longrun, i've already purchased, and doesn't matter if i can't even get the bios to read it when it used to...fm/som/L
04:43 Ponko each to there own
04:44 sndwrx hopstafarian: Right.  Are you using these as production units or simply proof-of-concept?
04:45 hopstafarian not sure what a squib cake is , though i do enjoy TOP...but that crabcake with the beer and the garlic/horseradish aioli was kinda delicious...

04:51 sndwrx So stick around and keep me up to date.
04:52 hopstafarian sndwrx, the good news is that it's just the one unit that i possibly hosed for ttb, and can get it fixed by the time we need them all...
04:52 wannabe1987 night Ponko
04:52 Ponko left #thegeekgroup
04:52 hopstafarian sndwrx, thanks for the input...keep you POSted...
04:52 sndwrx How many units total once it goes into production use?
04:53 hopstafarian sndwrx, njoy the food and sleep well..they're telling me 6, but i happen to know it's only 4...and the other two will make the roi look better when it comes time to expand...
04:54 sndwrx Is this a client you're building the product for?
04:54 sndwrx Or are you part of the company's IT department, or something?
04:55 hopstafarian sndwrx, not a contractor, though i do side work...sad to say , 5 locations i am the it department...
04:55 hopstafarian sndwrx, one man show...(part of my fee is the entertainment factor is seeing my flail)
04:55 sndwrx Gotcha.
04:56 sndwrx Do you do work like this often?
05:00 AgCNO6 joined #thegeekgroup
05:00 BotSteve TOASTY!
05:00 hopstafarian sndwrx, you mean like a swan , trying to swim gracefully across the pond while paddling like hell underneath...no, not often...most of the time i'm competent...but in this environment, sometimes i have to validate them and encourage their creative ideas, without making the ride too bumpy for the passenger..who doesn't understand the principles of flight, but loves to do that, as long as you can effectively insulate them from th
05:00 hopstafarian e realities of how tentative that situation actually is.....
05:02 hopstafarian sndwrx, and make even the most turbulent of flights more like a controlled kiddiecoaster, if that's theyre level...(and yes, i love to fly_)
05:02 hopstafarian sndwrx, gnight
05:02 sndwrx Ah, I was just curious if you get to work on fun things like that often.
05:02 AgCNO6 .
05:03 sndwrx i.e., building products as opposed to cookie cutter IT work.
05:03 hopstafarian sndwrx,  fortunately/unfortunately, all the blessed/gd time...i like to make my own fun when i can
05:04 sndwrx Cool.  Well, have a good night.  If I can help with anything, let me know.
05:04 sndwrx I don't know how familiar you are with kiosk stuff.
05:05 hopstafarian sndwrx,  the older i get, the more i despise the cookie cutter, if that's what you're hinting at...the other side of the blade, is that i paint myself in these corners, take on too much, etc...
05:05 sndwrx I understand both sentiments.
05:05 sndwrx I'm presently working on library job that, while a lot of fun and I'm learning a lot, it's... Well it's taking too long.
05:06 hopstafarian sndwrx, sounds like you know the drill...not very...basically just enough to run iexplore.exe -k, or set a false proxy and only exclude certain sites...lol
05:06 sndwrx Gotcha.
05:07 sndwrx One of the lovely things about Linux is how easily you can sandbox stuff, if you will
05:07 sndwrx I just built a multiseat box that loads straight to a kiosk mode Firefox session and permits access to only about two dozen sites.
05:07 sndwrx Runs on Debian with IceWM.
05:08 hopstafarian sndwrx, then we're on the same page, though it sounds like the lib job is a much larger scale...is it the scale that's proving the rosetta yet to be solved?
05:09 hopstafarian sndwrx, ah, now you're talking my language...i basically proposed to linux the first night i met her...
05:09 sndwrx Actually, it's the hokey/hackey Windows software they're using (through no fault of their own), and trying to match the same feature set that they're accustomed to.
05:10 hopstafarian sndwrx,  as is so often the case w/the hokey, though less often the hackey
05:11 hopstafarian sndwrx, debian rocks, i will not deny you...
05:11 hopstafarian sonic.net
05:12 sndwrx Everyone loves their own distro.
05:12 sndwrx My buddy won't use anything but Gentoo.  Of course, he's a bit of a masochist.

17:50 wannabe1987 so i couldn't say anything
17:50 wannabe1987 so i rebooted again
17:51 Sgt_Lemming Ctrl + Tab
17:51 wannabe1987 thx
17:51 wannabe1987 now it works :P
17:51 Sgt_Lemming Alt + Numbers works as well
17:52 Sgt_Lemming the numbers going from 1 to 9 along the tab bar at the top
17:52 wannabe1987 but i'm attempting to make sugar cookies today and all the recipes are on the web so i couldn't very well use nomouse
17:52 wannabe1987 yeah, i know what numbers to use
17:52 SparkyProjects Wannabe, there's a function on my notebook for turning the pad on and off
17:52 SparkyProjects Mine is func + F3i think
17:52 Sgt_Lemming my notebook doesn't have a touchpad :-P
17:53 Sgt_Lemming but it does have two pointing devices
17:53 Sgt_Lemming care to guess what they are?
17:53 SparkyProjects I usually use a mouse with mine, so i turn my pad off
17:54 SparkyProjects Trackball ?
17:54 Sgt_Lemming nope, although I do have one
17:54 SparkyProjects Mini joystick ?
17:54 Sgt_Lemming warmer :-P
17:54 wannabe1987 xbox controller?
17:55 Sgt_Lemming lol
17:56 BatSteve Sgt_Lemming: your fingers?
17:56 wannabe1987 bats!  you live!
17:56 Sgt_Lemming heh, that's kind of a given, regardless of the device in question
17:56 BatSteve oh wait, you don't have a touchpad
17:56 BatSteve disregard
17:57 Sgt_Lemming SparkyProjects, mini joystick is close... but not quite
17:57 SparkyProjects I can't think of anything else, unless you mean a separate device
17:58 Sgt_Lemming nope
17:58 Sgt_Lemming Trackpoint is one of them
17:58 SparkyProjects So it's a pointing device that's part of the netbook ?
17:58 Sgt_Lemming aka clit mouse
17:58 BatSteve darn, that was going to be my guess
17:58 Sgt_Lemming yeah, there are two, see if you can guess the other one
17:59 BatSteve Do you have mousekeys enabled?
17:59 Sgt_Lemming it's not a touchpad, trackball or external mouse
17:59 Sgt_Lemming BatSteve, dedicated pointing device
17:59 BatSteve ah
17:59 SparkyProjects This is what  meant by mini joystick, but couldn't think of the name
17:59 SparkyProjects http://codinghorror.typepad.com/.a/6a0120a85dcdae970b0120a86d647f970b-pi
17:59 wannabe1987 laser pointer!
18:00 Sgt_Lemming yeah, that's a trackpoint
18:00 Sgt_Lemming pretty cool how they work actually
18:00 Sgt_Lemming there is a 2 axis ceramic force guage under them
18:00 SparkyProjects ah, we used to call it 'the Tit'
18:00 wannabe1987 lem, laser pointer?
18:02 Sgt_Lemming nope
18:02 Sgt_Lemming not really a feasible input device wannabe1987 :-P
18:02 sndwrx wannabe1987: Are you looking for someone to play with you?
18:02 SparkyProjects touchscreen
18:02 wannabe1987 what?  no...i'm not a cat/dog....
18:02 sndwrx Sgt_Lemming: Actually it can be used as an input device, and a pretty neat white board too.
18:03 * wannabe1987 is now aproned
18:03 Sgt_Lemming sndwrx, built into a laptop though?
18:03 sndwrx Well, no.
18:04 Sgt_Lemming SparkyProjects, again close, but not quite :-P
18:04 sndwrx Oh I see, we're guessing your input devices.
18:05 sndwrx So touchscreen, touchpad (glidepoint), trackpoint and trackball have all been covered.
18:05 sndwrx This is a built-in device?
18:05 * Sgt_Lemming nods
18:05 sndwrx Otherwise I was going to guess a space ball.
18:05 * sndwrx chuckles.
18:05 Sgt_Lemming hah, I wish!
18:06 Sgt_Lemming that would be awesome for CAD stuff
18:06 Sgt_Lemming but this works pretty well for CAD as well
18:06 sndwrx Cursor keys!
18:06 sndwrx haha.
18:06 Sgt_Lemming dedicated pointing device...
18:06 BatSteve Ooh, maybe there's some sort of hack that lets the laptop camera detect the position of his hands...oh, dedicated
18:06 BatSteve drat
18:07 Sgt_Lemming this is one of those times we need the points system BatSteve :-P
18:07 Seroster Drat?
18:07 * Seroster kicks BatSteve for profane language
18:07 sndwrx This is on a netbook?
18:07 sndwrx Is it an IR sensor pad?
18:07 Sgt_Lemming notebook, not a netbook
18:08 sndwrx oh.
18:08 * Cprossu sells profane and profane accessories
18:08 sndwrx Still, is it an IR touch sensor?  Like what many phones have now.
18:08 Sgt_Lemming nope
18:08 * BatSteve licks seroster
18:08 BatSteve *kicks
18:09 Seroster Freudian tit?

18:09 sndwrx Oh, stylus?  Or did you include that in touchscreen?
18:09 Seroster Cprossu, Nah he isnt, angy wants to eat my liver.
18:09 sndwrx Stylus / Radio pen.

18:11 Sgt_Lemming mine has the 1400x1050 display, l7700 cpu, 4GB of ram and 500GByte Hybrid Hard drive
18:11 sndwrx I want to know why a four year old laptop is selling for $2200-$3000 online.
18:11 Sgt_Lemming sndwrx, because they are awesome
18:11 SparkyProjects though it's been about 8 hours, she should be awake soon
18:12 Sgt_Lemming and damned tough
18:12 sndwrx But there are two vendors selling them for $422 and $649, which sounds a lot closer to its real value.
18:12 Sgt_Lemming I should be asleep soon!
18:12 Sgt_Lemming yeah
18:12 wannabe1987 lem!  don't leave me with these crazy americans/brits!
18:12 sndwrx Oh, no.  The motherboard is $422.
18:14 Cprossu sndwrx wow, you're better off with a parts machine at that price
18:14 crohakon joined #thegeekgroup
18:15 sndwrx Yeah, no thanks.
18:16 sndwrx I like Lenovo stuff, but that's pretty ridiculous.
18:16 Sgt_Lemming sleep time, later all
18:16 sndwrx nigh Sgt_Lemming
18:18 sndwrx Am I the only one that dislikes crumbly, crunchy cookies?
18:18 BatSteve you are not
18:19 BatSteve I mean, they have their place, sure, but chewy ones are also delicious
18:19 sndwrx I'm just wondering why 95% of Christmas cookies are crummy, crumbly, crunchy, crappy cookies.  :)
18:19 BatSteve and I usually prefer them
18:19 wannabe1987 wait, what about cookies?
18:19 sndwrx Is it a requirement for Christmas cookies to be crappy?
18:19 wannabe1987 fuck no
18:19 wannabe1987 my christmas cookies are not crappy
18:19 sndwrx "Can't outshine the fruit cake, let's make terrible cookies!"
18:21 wannabe1987 chewy cookies are the best
18:21 wannabe1987 i agree
18:23 sndwrx I especially dislike dry, crumbly sugar cookies.
18:23 wannabe1987 well, i'll let you know how this batch comes out....
18:23 sndwrx It's like they're assembled in a similar manner as chipboard:  Clump some sugar together with some chintzy glue and put it in the heat for a little while.
18:25 wannabe1987 i can assure you this batch has 1 lb butter and 6 cups of flour and vanilla and sugar and a bit of salt
18:25 wannabe1987 its nommy unbaked!
18:28 BatSteve a pound of butter?
18:28 BatSteve a whole pound?
18:28 BatSteve how much is a pound?  like two sticks?
18:28 sndwrx Four sticks, I think?
18:28 wannabe1987 4
18:28 BatSteve oh good lord
18:28 * sndwrx nods.
18:29 wannabe1987 :D
18:29 sndwrx mmmm
18:29 Seroster SparkyProjects, http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-nyYxFye9_q4/TjQwKhMITlI/AAAAAAAAErU/wY3yW_-D5Yg/s1600/single+phase+to+three+phase+conversion.JPG does that look like it would work?
18:29 sndwrx Roasted red pepper asiago cheese dip and wheat thins.
18:30 wannabe1987 mmm
18:30 SparkyProjects Yeah, the diagram i saw many years ago was something like that
18:32 sndwrx Actually they're generic wheat thins.
18:32 wannabe1987 lol
18:32 sndwrx And for the dense population, "Thin Wheat Baked Snack Crackers Made with Wheat"
18:33 Seroster SparkyProjects, What about the starter cap?
18:34 wannabe1987 .in 45min cookies
18:34 BotSteve wannabe1987: Okay, will remind at 19:19Z
18:34 SparkyProjects As metioned in the diagram, it may be needed to give the motor a kick
18:35 SparkyProjects You may get it to work by applying power ad just turning on the run cap, and no need for the start cap
18:41 captnobvious awww

18:51 mashpriborintorg except maybe if the neighgbour is adorable
19:06 Seroster Hey SparkyProjects
19:06 Seroster As for the size of the capacitor, how many mikes?
19:07 Seroster Or does it even matter?
19:07 SparkyProjects Try arond 5 - 16, depends on the motor size, the right one won't buzz so much
19:08 Seroster 10microfarad?
19:08 Seroster That's ten microwave oven capacitors
19:08 SparkyProjects yeah, try that
19:08 Seroster '-'
19:10 Seroster I have a five mike here.
19:10 Seroster .erm
19:10 Cprossu lol mashpriborintorg, don't repair pc's where you live.
19:10 Seroster can you paralell caps without problems?
19:10 Cprossu AC or DC?
19:11 Seroster Ac
19:11 Cprossu then no.
19:11 Cprossu (at least imo)
19:11 Seroster ...Second opinion, SparkyProjects?
19:11 SparkyProjects You can
19:12 Seroster Sparky overpowers cprossu, sorry cprossu, You know I still love you =P
19:12 Cprossu lol I meant the 'without problems' part
19:13 Seroster =P
19:14 Electricguy lol... if you type Define an English person on google, the first link you get is Cunt on wikipedia... XD
19:14 Seroster SparkyProjects, Hm. what if its too big, or if it is lytic?
19:14 Electricguy lol
19:14 Cprossu still?!
19:14 SparkyProjects Cprossu, Seroster is trying to get a 3 phase motor to run on single, he's going to have problems.
19:14 SparkyProjects Don't uuse lytics
19:14 Seroster =)
19:14 Seroster Righto
19:14 Cprossu ahhhhh ok.
19:15 SparkyProjects Cprossu http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-nyYxFye9_q4/TjQwKhMITlI/AAAAAAAAErU/wY3yW_-D5Yg/s1600/single+phase+to+three+phase+conversion.JPG
19:15 Seroster Hey SparkyProjects, this one is lytic 500v 500mikes.
19:15 * Cprossu predicts explody the capacitor! cousin of explody the clown!
19:15 Seroster =D
19:15 Electricguy if it's a AC cap it shouldn't be any problem
19:15 Seroster They are dc right
19:15 Seroster Yerp...
19:15 SparkyProjects Seroster, if you use lytics, make a vid :D
19:15 Cprossu yeah but they still could overheat
19:15 Seroster Oh piss off sparkie =P
19:16 Cprossu you're trying to use MOT caps on it Seroster?
19:16 Cprossu or something else?
19:16 Seroster I get extra points for putting razorblades on the motor shaft and having the capacitor in my hand, right?
19:16 Cprossu no, but you get extra points for trying to shave with it.
19:17 Seroster Cprossu, I have never seen a 500v 500mike MOC. They are generally 2kv+
19:17 Seroster Right. face or balls?
19:17 Cprossu well face for the bonus points, balls for the multiplier
19:17 Seroster Righto
19:17 Seroster Multikill if I remove a leg?
19:18 Cprossu no.
19:18 Cprossu in fact that decreases your multiplier by 1/2
19:19 Cprossu gotta be some element of skill there\
19:19 BotSteve wannabe1987: cookies
19:21 SparkyProjects captn_obvious cookies
19:21 Seroster I dug deep in my cap drawer
19:21 Cprossu you know I saw the cutest little 1/16 HP 3 phase motor the other day
19:21 Cprossu damn near bought it because it was so little
19:22 SparkyProjects You should have done, could have made a simple vfd
19:22 Seroster 420v 8,7uf    250v 20uf   250v 12uf    Wich one?
19:22 Seroster twelve?
19:22 SparkyProjects try the 12, or try the 8.7
19:22 Seroster I thiiiink its foil
19:23 Seroster -40 to 100c... Its foil.
19:24 captn_obvious yes, cookies.  always cookies :P
19:24 Electricguy LOLOL! XD http://www.n0.se/f/f/9395b_io.jpg
19:24 Cprossu bahahahahah nice Electricguy
19:24 Electricguy so win :P
19:25 Seroster lol
19:25 SparkyProjects Are your cookies ok ?
19:26 wannabe1987 they are in the fridge....
19:26 wannabe1987 not cut out yet
19:26 wannabe1987 i hope so
19:27 Electricguy LOL! http://www.n0.se/f/n/26aeb_101-dalmatians-doctor-house.jpg
19:28 Cprossu SparkyProjects: her cookies are probably fine, mine however http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll312/timailius/Comics/DryerCookiesTM.jpg
19:28 Cprossu probably didn't turn out well at all
19:28 wannabe1987 lol
19:28 SparkyProjects :D
19:29 wannabe1987 sister brought home double stuff oreos :D
19:29 * Cprossu found that googling 'raining cookies' because he wants to to rain cookies but could find nothing funny not related to seseme street
19:29 wannabe1987 lol
19:29 Cprossu it happens.
19:29 wannabe1987 om nom nom oreo
19:30 Cprossu Have you heard about these things called 'cookies'? they're delicious! :D
19:32 Seroster HM
19:32 Seroster There is a diagram on the inside of hte motor
19:32 Seroster Weith a capacitor
19:33 Seroster Z-U X-V Y-W (delta)  Cap U-W  "R" to W and "Mp" to U.   Is R phase? (The other diagrams got R S T for p1 p2 p3) - and Mp would be neutral, right?
19:36 SparkyProjects There's no neutral for delta
19:36 Seroster Yes I know
19:37 Seroster Mp is the one that isnt used in the delta or Y on two of the diagrams
19:37 SparkyProjects What make/model ?
19:38 Seroster MP and R are the only feeds for the "Rechtslaut" and "Linkslaut" - rechts being right and links being right.
19:38 Seroster left*
19:38 SparkyProjects If there are 2 lines of 3 terminals, one horizontal link across all 3 is star, 3 vertical links is delta
19:38 Seroster Three vertical, thís is a delta.
19:38 ajprog_laptop joined #thegeekgroup
19:39 SparkyProjects OK, if there are only 3 winding connections, choose any 2 for power, and any other 2 for cap, reverse to change direction

19:51 killakee is that wetilation made from cat5 cable XD
19:51 killakee ventilation*
19:54 SparkyProjects That looks like a telephone exchange, the ones i worked in weren't as bad as that, but i remember  crawling along the trays running cables
19:55 mashpriborintorg some hell of a wiring... and people wonder why the have no dialtone sometimes, working up there without damaging something must be nearly impossible
19:57 SparkyProjects You wouldn't work up there like that, if a wire breaks you would replace the run
19:58 SparkyProjects All our ladder rack runs were sheathed cables, they were only stripped back for the drops to the frames
19:59 mashpriborintorg so a good amount of unused wires remains there, just because they can't be removed
19:59 mashpriborintorg until the damn tihng collapes down :p
19:59 * Ponko is wondering why his cat was rubbing it's head on the wires
20:00 Seroster SparkyProjects, Wow that cap was unhappy when I discharged
20:00 Seroster ..er
20:00 Seroster When I discharged THE CAPACITOR
20:00 Seroster ...
20:01 Seroster The entire table was bouncing in 50hz, do I need more or less capacitance?
20:01 Ponko Seroster i don't want to know when and what you're discharging
20:01 SparkyProjects Could be either, or it could be that it won't run smooth at all
20:01 Seroster ...FRK
20:02 Seroster What is most likely? XD
20:02 MoxieMike_ joined #thegeekgroup
20:02 Seroster Since it says on the case it can run 220 i think its possible
20:03 Ponko but if it explodes?
20:03 SparkyProjects I would say if it's a small motor, go smaller
20:04 Seroster Small might be an understatement
20:04 Seroster Its so tiny it doesnt even mention HP.
20:04 Seroster 65 watts.
20:04 Seroster .c 65watts to hp

20:22 ajprog_laptop the video on justin.tv only goes back to 5am, I have to check with Cprossu why more of it isn't saved
20:23 SparkyProjects Depends when it was last cut

20:43 * KawaiiJess runs off to the shower
20:43 SparkyProjects Seroster, i think it will always hum, it's not designed for single phase, the most you can do is find a cap that doesn't make it hum as much
20:43 SparkyProjects I wonder if disconnecting a phase winding would help, 2 windings connected to a common point (neutral), one of those windings connected to live, other connected in series with cap to live
20:51 Seroster Hey sparky
20:51 SparkyProjects ?
20:51 Seroster Hardly hummed at all with 2mikes
20:51 SparkyProjects Cool :)
20:52 Seroster Nah, it got rather toasty with the bigger caps
20:52 SparkyProjects Is there enough power for the motor to do 'work' ?
20:52 Seroster Not hot, but it would be nice to have in bed a cold winters night
20:52 Seroster xD
20:52 Seroster Yes, it's a 0.087hp motor, it doesnt need a lot
20:52 SparkyProjects haha, geek bed warmer :D
20:52 Seroster Yep! =D
20:53 Seroster its like a smaller harder cat. xD
20:53 yNos YAY!! I HAS A CARRR!!!!
20:53 wannabe1987 hay
20:53 wannabe1987 yay*
20:53 SparkyProjects I mean can you hold the shaft and feel it working against you, or does it stop easily
20:53 wannabe1987 what kind?!
20:53 yNos Suby Forester
20:53 yNos 98
20:53 yNos needs struts, but that isnt hard to do
20:54 Seroster SparkyProjects, I did that and just slipped, it got a reduction gear on it (worm shaft, geared to one big pulley and one small pulley)
20:54 SparkyProjects ah, ok, useful
20:54 Seroster If I clamped down on the small pulley really hard with a pair of pliers I could halt it, but not before it wanted to get off the table
20:54 Seroster I didnt want to damage the large pulley
