00:03 lwq-ipod Seroster what did you do
00:10 Seroster Something stupid
00:10 Seroster I put a male shuko on a wire that already had a male shuko
00:10 Seroster Wich, had I plugged it in, would have been quite an electrocution hazard.
00:11 tonsofpcs erm
00:12 masterofmonks Seroster: I thought you used them is *CENSORED* with your *CENSORED*.
00:12 masterofmonks in*
00:12 tonsofpcs at least you weren't trying to patch a generator into your circuits with one or something equally silly!
00:13 Seroster Are you fucking kidding me, people do that?
00:13 Seroster This is a 1foot extension cord with the outer insulation stripped in the middle, to allow for a clamp on meter.
00:13 tonsofpcs Seroster: well, I haven't heard of someone doing it with a stinger, but I have heard of people wiring generators into circuit breakers to backfeed their service....
00:14 tonsofpcs that reminds me, I have an in-line ammeter (in a box with a NEMA 5-15P on a cord and NEMA 5-15R on the box) that I need to take apart and fix.
00:15 Seroster I read in the paper about a guy who had a beefy diesel generator in a shed, that activated automatically when he lost power.  When a service tech cut power to the 10kv line and went on to remove the fallen tree....
00:15 Seroster Since then safety switches that disengage power feed from line when the generator kicks on are mandatory...
00:16 tonsofpcs Seroster: yup, that's what happens when people wire them in without a proper ATS and/or without notifying the power company that they have a generator.
00:16 Seroster =)
00:17 tonsofpcs after flooding throughout the northeast here, to restore service the power company would cut off whole communities if they saw any voltage on the lines and couldn't discern exactly where it was coming from.
00:17 injektion When I had a diesel generator I manually disconnected the power company's feed and manually started up the generator
00:17 injektion I also had a big sign next to the generator
00:17 tonsofpcs injektion: yea, that's not enough.
00:17 Seroster If you have a generator that kicks on automatically you gotta have automatic safety
00:17 tonsofpcs SquareD makes interesting bonding straps for panels now that will, with the main in the panel on one side and the generator tied into the panel across, make the two switch together.
00:18 tesla4d_ tonsofpcs: "manually started up the generator"
00:18 tonsofpcs tesla4d_: irrelevant.
00:18 Seroster Yes indeed. But it is slightly better than not.
00:19 tonsofpcs tesla4d_: the fact that it can physically happen in normal operation to someone skilled in the art without knowledge of the system is a VERY bad thing.
00:19 tesla4d_ Oh, shit. You and Seroster are the same color in my IRC program. I misunderstood the conversation. Whoops.
00:19 Seroster NOOOO! =P
00:19 * tesla4d_ disappears again.
00:19 * tonsofpcs is now blue
00:19 Seroster ... Wich colour is it?
00:19 tesla4d_ Powder blue.
00:19 Seroster How cuddly
00:19 Seroster Anyway. This piece of wire is illegal in more than one way
00:20 tonsofpcs at work, we have ATSs for the generator.  For our UPS which has a maintenance bypass (basically it has a built-in backfeed system), there's a keyed lock-out on each feed and there's a key-holder with interlock tied to the UPS so you can't not do it in the wrong order.
00:20 Seroster 1, It goes from grounded to non grounded. 2, its MISSING INSULATION...
00:20 Seroster Erm
00:20 Seroster Lol, right.
00:21 injektion When we lived at my grandmothers they actually read the sign :|
00:22 tonsofpcs what injektion was doing could easily be made non-dangerous by having a lock-out system such that you needed to lock the main breaker open using a key that was held in when it was unlocked (and able to be closed) and use the same exact key (no duplicates available) to start (or engage) the generator (or its breaker).
00:22 Seroster Erm
00:22 Experimentonomen overloaded the genny, injektion ?
00:22 injektion tonsofpcs, How my grandmothers house was wired there was no breaker outside the house
00:22 injektion It was in the laundry room which was always locked
00:23 tonsofpcs who said anything about outside the house?
00:23 Seroster Screw that. You need a com/nc/no contactor.  Com to the house, NC to feed and NO to generator, and a few relays to make the logic circuit that makes the contactor pull when power is cut.
00:23 tonsofpcs Seroster: yup.
00:24 injektion Experimentonomen, The generator died
00:24 Seroster Your description of a lockout system was lacking =P
00:24 Seroster Pft, you just made a bigass electric motor with a compressor connected to it =D
00:24 tonsofpcs Seroster: that's a standard ATS (also, an additional relay to fire the generator start and a time-delay relay to turn it off after a cooldown and return to mains)
00:24 injektion I built the generator engine myself when I worked for an engine manufacturer
00:24 tonsofpcs Seroster: a lockout system would be one way of creating a safe manual change-over
00:24 Seroster Screw manual =P
00:25 tonsofpcs remember: these people who install things silly are trying to do the impossible on the cheap.
00:25 Seroster Mate
00:25 injektion Sad thing is that the FIP started going out I said fuck it and I decided not to fix it
00:25 tonsofpcs wwhich reminds me, I need to take pictures of the ATS for the guy who sold it to us anyway.  I'll take a picture of our fancy UPS bypass lockout system tomorrow :)
00:25 Seroster Ive seen the stupidest shit ever
00:26 injektion Those engines were meant to be disposable never repaired
00:27 Seroster A guy who installed his dishwasher with a ten centimeter screw, from the supposedly watertight chamber of the dishwasher, missed the water package of the washer by half a millimeter, and ended up with the screw tip a centimeter from the 400volt threephase feed to the oven next to the washer.  Water moved over the screw by capillary action and actually dripped onto L1.
00:28 tonsofpcs we had all sorts of stories from the electricians who did our generator and UPS install.  I was facepalming to at least one a day
00:29 tonsofpcs Although I think the best electrical I've dealt witth is the power company telling us that their service tolerance on 480V is 20%.
00:29 masterofmonks Seroster: I once worked on a dryer that had stopped working turned out that there was 150lbs of rifle amuntion under the drum.
00:30 tonsofpcs masterofmonks: did you stop working on it, grab your rifle, and explain to the owner how dangerous it was with a live-fire demonstration?
00:30 masterofmonks The people would throw a couple of rounds in their pocket and go hunting, come back, and forget the ammo was there, and throw the clothes in the laundry.
00:33 Seroster Morons with guns kinda scare me.
00:35 injektion I am out of Siracha
00:35 injektion :(
00:36 masterofmonks My favorite hotsauce of the past coupe of years has been El Yucatecho.
00:36 injektion Siracha is so good I don't even use ketchup
00:36 masterofmonks But only the green.
00:36 masterofmonks I don't ever use ketchup.
00:37 masterofmonks I find the substance to be revolting.
00:37 injektion Every now and then I use a Dijon mustard
00:38 Seroster Since I moved out I haven't bought either ketchup or mustard.
00:38 injektion What do you use?
00:39 masterofmonks Seroster uses KY.
00:42 CaptainNiobe ... can't leave you boys alone for a minute... goto she shops, come back, find mom's being naughty in main... MOM! YOU'RE THE BLOODY GOD +OF MAIN! y u  so naughty? *headdesk*
00:48 Seroster oooops
00:48 tonsofpcs Monkeh: no one that has responded actually does SMD work like that in the UK, sorry.  (I've got people that do it and people in the UK, none that both)
00:52 Seroster Whoa
00:52 Seroster Autopsy of a party popper
00:52 * CaptainNiobe rocks out to testeo
00:52 Seroster I got two for a buck a piece
00:52 CaptainNiobe testio*
00:52 Seroster A LOT of glitter and confetti
00:53 Seroster Now I got into the explosives, I can see how twisting of the tube ignites the charge...
00:53 Seroster But what scares me is that from what I can tell of it a big evil metal thing comes flying too
00:53 Seroster Either that or this is a grenade
00:53 CaptainNiobe sero, you already killed your knee, don't kill you too lol
00:54 Seroster I dont want to dremel it open
00:54 Seroster Too wide for my pipe cutters
00:54 Seroster Dont want to twist the cap off, since twisting it.... SETS IT OFF
00:55 tonsofpcs put it in a fire-proof safe next to C4, cover the safe in lead, then set off the C4?
00:57 Seroster Why would I do that?
00:59 Hackfox joined #thegeekgroup
01:02 Ponko hmm when does the show start
01:02 SparkyProjects1 Do the russiian militery make your party poppers Seroster ?
01:02 SparkyProjects1 Ours are not a lot different to how a christmas cracker snap works, and there's a cardboard disc that pushes the streamers out
01:02 Seroster I kinda think
01:03 Seroster Heh
01:03 Seroster You mean the tiny ones, plastic, a string, two pieces of cardboard and a little confetti?
01:03 SparkyProjects1 Something like that
01:04 Seroster Yeah... Those are tiny ones
01:04 Seroster I could stuff one in my armpit and set it off, without caring much
01:04 Seroster But this thing was a foot long, and got a 2inch welded metal can in the bottom
01:04 Seroster Looks a bit like a tiki torch
01:05 SparkyProjects1 Ah
01:05 Seroster On the end where the wick would be there is a piece of metal, that grips into the tube. When twisted it explodes
01:06 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Unacceptable!
01:06 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Thanks though
01:06 Ponko hype yourself for the big show by listening to this
01:07 BotSteve Title: NFL Primetime Songs (2 of 5) THE CLOCK IS TICKING - YouTube

02:01 tonsofpcs NeWtoz:
02:11 egrsteve|away hello
02:13 egrsteve|away anything new here
02:13 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Dude, I'm addicted to caffeine, you think I do? ;)
02:15 Monkeh egrsteve|away: Apparently not.
02:31 injektion Does anyone here know anything about SCSI cables?
02:34 egrsteve|away what aboutt them?
02:34 egrsteve|away I know you must terminate them
02:37 injektion Do they make cables that can go from 68 pin or 50 pin to the Centronics 50 connector? or do you need adapters?
02:41 producerbill2 joined #thegeekgroup
02:42 Monkeh injektion: Adapters and they suck
02:42 producerbill2 live stream seems tone ready for tomorrow
02:42 Monkeh egrsteve|away: While you're here, I must ask. Are you greasing that poor drill you're abusing?
02:42 producerbill2 no
02:43 producerbill2 we get one with each box
02:43 producerbill2 sooo I guess
02:43 Monkeh producerbill2: Somehow I think we're talking about different drills. :P
02:44 Monkeh (the cheap round shank stuff you get for free does not need greasing)
02:44 injektion Ok I need a 68pin SCSI cable that goes to Centronics 50
02:44 producerbill2 what one are you talking about
02:45 Monkeh producerbill2: The SDS.
02:45 Ponko joined #thegeekgroup
02:46 producerbill2 sds not sure what that is
02:46 Monkeh The big corded one.
02:46 Monkeh Which takes special bits.
02:47 producerbill2 I see. no I have never oiled a electric drill
02:47 Monkeh producerbill2: You don't oil them.
02:48 producerbill2 ok
02:48 Monkeh You grease them.
02:49 producerbill2 the drill motor, or the bit?
02:49 Monkeh The bit
02:49 Monkeh At the shank
02:50 producerbill2 I guess I never thought about it.
02:51 producerbill2 and never greased a masion bit in the past
02:52 Monkeh producerbill2: Look at it this way: The drill shank is a piece of metal sliding across a piece of metal (the chuck) a huge number of times, very fast. What do you do with metal on metal contact?
02:53 producerbill2 the bit Gould not be sliding so it shouldn't be building up heat.  now the drill tip would be building up heat as it impacts the surface
02:54 producerbill2 but I don't really know
02:54 Monkeh producerbill2: Uhm.. It should be sliding. That's how the SDS chuck operates.
02:54 Monkeh producerbill2: See here:
02:54 BotSteve Title: Chuck (engineering) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
02:54 producerbill2 guess I am not understanding the issue
02:54 producerbill2 or problem
03:15 Coderjoe "The hammer action actually moves the bit up and down within the chuck since the bit is free to move a short distance. Two sprung balls fit into closed grooves, allowing movement whilst retaining the bit."

03:41 wannabe1987 we got worried
03:41 sndwrx eadthem: Sounds like you got the nice one.  I'll bet Puppy, Slitaz or Crunchbang would run pretty well.  I'm sure a few others would to, but they don't come to mind off-hand.
03:42 Bat-Mobile I was busy christmasing with my family
03:42 eadthem prob wont use it that often
03:42 Bat-Mobile did I miss anything important?

03:44 NeWtoz Bat-Mobile, I have questions regarding the bot
03:44 Bat-Mobile Why did they let you work then?
03:44 Bat-Mobile hi NeWtoz - lay your questions upon me
03:44 wannabe1987 because i was shadowing :)
03:44 NeWtoz Have you guys already implemented a DB of some sorts?
03:45 NeWtoz I wanted to know your plan on that before I keep coding a module
03:45 NeWtoz I noticed you guys do a storage thing, but was wondering if you implemented a flatfile like sql lite or soemthing
03:46 NeWtoz or just a .txt
03:46 Bat-Mobile actually yeah, we've got a JSON store that astro spent a while on that seems to be working pretty well
03:46 NeWtoz something new to learn then
03:46 Bat-Mobile and there's sqlite for more impressive queries as well
03:47 Bat-Mobile I'm mostly using sqlite in BotSteve as a way for me to learn more about sql.
03:48 NeWtoz I know sql, so I'd be more comfortable with it, but if it's just going to be moved to something else later, I'd have to have to recode it
03:48 NeWtoz I'd hate to have to recode it*

04:18 NeWtoz I didn't know there was going to be a party either...
04:18 Ponko i had a very good Xmas night i might add Bat-Mobile :P
04:18 NeWtoz that is, if it's open to people
04:18 Toastdude Yep, members
04:18 wannabe1987 there.  i told Toastdude
04:19 Ponko 35-21 against the bears is a fantastic present
04:19 sndwrx Well, I'm not a member.
04:19 sndwrx Nor have I had the time to volunteer the way I've wanted.
04:19 Ponko how do you become a member
04:19 Ponko join the forums?
04:20 wannabe1987 pay money?
04:20 wannabe1987 idk
04:20 wannabe1987 hi sndwrx
04:20 Ponko lol
04:20 Monkeh|Lap sndwrx: I'm sure being known around IRC will get you in
04:20 Bat-Mobile I agree Ponko - by the way, my beloved lions are in the playoffs
04:20 Toastdude sndwrx: Then we couldn't have met.. open to members only
04:20 wannabe1987 i'm a member, i hang out online and thats good enough for me, i go in occassionally if i need to /have time
04:20 Toastdude Mebership iss free, though
04:20 Ponko yeah congrats
04:21 Ponko but i'm still scratching my head though
04:21 Toastdude Bat-Mobile: You like the Lions too?
04:21 sndwrx Toastdude: I've been there a couple times and no one has said anything about it.  :P
04:21 Toastdude Lol, okay then :P
04:21 Ponko which is better Ravens or Lions
04:21 sndwrx I hung out snapping photos for hours after the GiveCamp ended, while they were testing stomper.
04:22 Bat-Mobile Lions
04:22 Monkeh|Lap I think they're generally pretty lax about it until they officially open
04:23 leepod god this ipods stupid it said i had 20%batt life like 5 times now
04:23 wannabe1987 lax about what, photos?
04:23 wannabe1987 don't get me started on boden, dave and pictures
04:23 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: No, members and access to the building.
04:23 sndwrx Monkeh|Lap: That seems to be the case.
04:24 wannabe1987 ahhh
04:24 Monkeh|Lap I only recently became an (unpaid) member but having spoken to Chris on Youtube a few times I imagine if I were over there and told him who I was I'd get a 'Hey, come on in, have a look around. Want to see Gemini?', regardless of membership.
04:24 Bat-Mobile You would
04:25 NeWtoz don't worry, I've let Ponko know about the Lions this year ;)
04:25 sndwrx How does one become an unpaid member?
04:25 NeWtoz website
04:25 Monkeh|Lap sndwrx: By signing up on the site.
04:25 sndwrx oh, ha.
04:25 Ponko joined #thegeekgroup
04:25 Ponko welp that's really annoying
04:25 Monkeh|Lap sndwrx: You can then purchase a paid membership and play with the toys (or volunteer and get to play with the toys in return)
04:26 * sndwrx nods.
04:26 Ponko did i miss an interesting convo Bat-Mobile
04:26 wannabe1987 :)
04:26 wannabe1987 ajprog_laptop: that was yummy cheesecake
04:26 Bat-Mobile I just got here
04:26 Bat-Mobile .log
04:26 BotSteve Channel history can be found at:
04:26 Bat-Mobile is your best bet
04:26 wannabe1987 he was gone for 5 (?) days
04:27 wannabe1987 i know things he doesn't know
04:27 wannabe1987 bats, my computer died :(
04:27 sndwrx It did?
04:27 sndwrx What happened?
04:27 wannabe1987 yeah....
04:27 wannabe1987 it won't charge :/
04:27 wannabe1987 so i'm on my dell laptop :/
04:27 Topic for #thegeekgroup is now Lab's Live Stream |   Channel log: |  Report website problems to dr_jkl with ".bug". | The name's Bond...Ionic Bond.  Taken, not shared. | Word of the day: laevoduction
04:28 Ponko ah yes Bat-Mobile a question
04:28 wannabe1987 i plug it in and it doesn't light up to be on charge and none of the normal tricks work so i backed it up last night (instead of sleeping ...) and now i'm on this computer.
04:28 wannabe1987 and highly annoyed
04:28 Bat-Mobile go for it
04:28 sndwrx Damaged jack?  Power brick go bad, maybe?
04:28 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: May be repairable.
04:28 Ponko Nicklas Lidstrom, best defenseman currently playing in the NHL?
04:29 wannabe1987 i don't multimeter in the house to check the power supply
04:29 Ponko hey i'm a Pens fan saying that
04:29 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: It doesn't even run off the adapter?
04:29 wannabe1987 doesn't charge at all
04:29 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Doesn't have to charge to run.
04:29 wannabe1987 i plug the adapter? in and nothing still uses battery
04:29 Monkeh|Lap Okay
04:29 sndwrx He's asking if it will run without the battery.
04:29 Monkeh|Lap Bad jack, cable, or PSU.
04:30 Ponko infact there's alot of Red Wings id have in my all-time NHL team Bat-Mobile
04:30 Bat-Mobile Ponko: yes, definitely
04:30 Ponko well he must be a loon though
04:30 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Take it down to the lab, if it's just the jack they'll have it fixed in no time.
04:30 Bat-Mobile Detroit = Hockeytown.  If I had to choose between the Lions and the Wings, I'd take the wings instantly
04:30 wannabe1987 if its on battery power, why would i try to run it w/o battery?!
04:30 Ponko because he's from the Land of Seroster
04:30 sndwrx Bat-Mobile: That's not a choice, they're entirely different sports.  :P
04:31 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: You never said if it was running off the adapter and not charging the battery or just not reacting to being plugged in at all.
04:31 wannabe1987 ooo
04:31 sndwrx wannabe1987: BEcause it can help determine if it's the adapter or jack.
04:31 sndwrx Or the PSU
04:31 wannabe1987 well, its plugged in, dead....want me to try to turn it on?
04:31 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Yes.
04:31 Ponko yeah me i'd Have Gordie Howe Mario Lemeux Wayne Gretsky Nicklas Lidstrom & Sidney Crosby
04:31 wannabe1987 OMG TENDONITIS ALERT
04:32 Monkeh|Lap If it powers up without a battery then it's the battery, battery connector, or battery controller
04:32 * Toastdude thinks "The beeltles is a very nice band, ever."
04:32 Monkeh|Lap If it does not then it's the PSU, jack, cable, or brick.
04:32 Monkeh|Lap Jack and cable are the most likely candidates
04:32 Ponko 2 Red Wings 2 Penguins 1 Oilers
04:32 wannabe1987 it...booted
04:32 wannabe1987 so it won't charge, right?
04:32 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: That's.. not good. Can you physically remove the battery?
04:33 Ponko that's a good line don't you think Bat-Mobile
04:33 wannabe1987 it shut down then
04:33 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Okay, that IS good.
04:33 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: It's not running off the adapter at all.
04:34 Monkeh|Lap That means it's probably one of the cheaper faults.
04:34 wannabe1987 i want it to charge tho..............
04:34 sndwrx Did you take the battery out while it was plugged in and on?
04:34 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Yes, but this identifies the problem as being in the non-battery, and thus cheap and easy (usually) side of things.
04:34 wannabe1987 sndwrx: yes
04:34 wannabe1987 Monkeh|Lap ok
04:34 ajprog_laptop now you are just teasing me
04:35 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Take it down to the lab, I'm sure someone will take a look at it for you
04:35 wannabe1987 ajprog_laptop: of course
04:35 wannabe1987 hey, wanna look at a netbook?
04:35 wannabe1987 :P
04:35 sndwrx Try to turn it back on now that the battery is out, while still plugged in.
04:35 Bat-Mobile sndwrx: totally a choice... hockey > football
04:35 sndwrx But yeah I agree with Monkeh|Lap, it's most likely a relatively simple fix.
04:35 tonsofpcs hockey > association football > american gridiron football
04:35 sndwrx Bat-Mobile: Why not both?
04:36 wannabe1987 sndwrx, does simple = cheap?
04:36 Monkeh|Lap sndwrx: Well there's four places for it to fail. One is easy to fix, one is cheap to fix, one is a small pain to fix, and the last is expensive to fix.
04:36 sndwrx I mean they're not comparable sports...  So why would one compare them?  Why would one have to choose between them?
04:36 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: If it's just the jack someone at the lab'll probably fix it for you there and then!
04:36 Bat-Mobile sndwrx: because otherwise I have nothing with which to annoy ponko
04:36 wannabe1987 i'll hope for that then, yes
04:37 Monkeh|Lap sndwrx: (that's jack, cable, adapter, and PSU in order)
04:37 Ponko hey ;) lol
04:37 sndwrx Monkeh|Lap: Right.
04:38 sndwrx I worked at a repair shop briefly, they were mesmerized by my dual-wielding soldering irons and legend of a 10-minute jack repair had spread to the neighboring BBQ joint by lunch time.  :P
04:38 sndwrx ha
04:38 sndwrx I'm not master at soldering, but that job wasn't a big deal.
04:39 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Half the people at the lab should be able to do it, so I'm sure you'll find someone. :)
04:39 Monkeh|Lap sndwrx: Neither am I, but reheating a joint or two is a simple exercise. Especially big fat ones like those.
04:39 wannabe1987 ajprog_laptop, if hes there :P
04:39 tonsofpcs 10-minute jack repair?  I can get a connector onto 10GX32 faster than that!
04:39 sndwrx I hated the jack on my old Gateway laptop so I replaced it with what I had on-hand... a couple of RCA jacks and a pigtail.  haha
04:39 wannabe1987 .seen sythen
04:39 BotSteve Sorry, I haven't seen sythen around.
04:39 ajprog_laptop wannabe1987: do what?
04:39 wannabe1987 awwww
04:39 Ponko and Bat-Mobile i'm a man of many sports
04:39 wannabe1987 fix my computer, are you not paying attention?!
04:39 ajprog_laptop nope not really :P
04:40 tonsofpcs she broke it (or something, I'm not sure)
04:40 wannabe1987 omg read up
04:40 wannabe1987 wtf
04:40 wannabe1987 i blame dad
04:40 wannabe1987 he used it first
04:40 tonsofpcs wannabe1987: make/model ?
04:40 sndwrx Monkeh|Lap: Well, this one was completely broken so I removed a good one from a bad board and replaced the bad one on the good board while the "lead tech" posted craigslist ads for prostitutes.
04:40 wannabe1987 toshiba nb205
04:40 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Or Chris, yNos, Steve, Bill..
04:40 tonsofpcs nope, I don't know that one.
04:40 wannabe1987 i'd rather not deal with chris (male), thx very much
04:40 wannabe1987 its a netbook
04:40 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: heh.
04:41 tonsofpcs sndwrx: did he find one?
04:41 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Yeah, I wouldn't waste his time with a simple job like that either, but just saying.. :P
04:41 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: He'd probably tell you to leave it with him and turn it into a video production.. :D
04:41 ajprog_laptop I can take a look at it, but if it needs something soddered (like a power jack) you will have to talk to bill or egrsteve|away
04:41 wannabe1987 lol
04:42 Monkeh|Lap ajprog_laptop: What, you can't solder?
04:42 sndwrx tonsofpcs: Sorry, to clarify he was taking calls from available prostitutes and posting ads in the personals sections, for them.
04:42 tonsofpcs i'd expect bill, batman, dave, ynos, or egrsteve should be able to handle a soldering iron
04:42 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: I have to say, I've no idea what Dave's abilities are (beyond being scary).
04:42 ajprog_laptop Monkeh|Lap: not to the skill to work on a laptop
04:43 wannabe1987 beyond zomb?  idk
04:43 Monkeh|Lap ajprog_laptop: What, a power jack?
04:43 Monkeh|Lap ajprog_laptop: They're huge!
04:43 Monkeh|Lap Not like it's SMD work or anything
04:43 tonsofpcs ajprog_laptop: eh, you probably could handle a power jack on a laptop.  Idk about this netbook though, no clue how it's laid out.  Most laptop power jacks just need a @#^*@( ton of heat and some patientce until the solder is flowing and you can pop them out
04:44 * Monkeh|Lap throws a 70W iron at tonsofpcs
04:44 tonsofpcs weak
04:44 wannabe1987 my laptop is holding out well, its from the lab
04:44 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: It's a gas iron so not that weak.
04:44 wannabe1987 wtf nick you have more nicks than i do!
04:44 * tonsofpcs throws a 250 watt iron at Monkeh|Lap and watches as it crashes to the ground about halfway there
04:44 ajt joined #thegeekgroup
04:45 wannabe1987 so do i start an ep of dr who or do i see if i'm needed in GR/allendale?
04:45 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: May be only 70W but it'll run up to about a thousand degrees easy enough. 1300 if you solder with a blowtorch. :P
04:45 wannabe1987 i'm not being texted back, which makes me WORRIED
04:45 sndwrx Needed where at midnight?
04:45 wannabe1987 my friend broke up w/ his gf
04:46 wannabe1987 you never know
04:46 sndwrx Oh, bummer.
04:46 wannabe1987 yeah....
04:46 sndwrx But what with the "GR/Allendale" ?  They're entirely separate.  :P
04:46 tonsofpcs wannabe1987: bring the ep of doctor who with you?
04:46 wannabe1987 its on a laptop....
04:46 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Xmas special?
04:46 wannabe1987 i can't watch and drive....
04:46 tonsofpcs right, which means it can go with you.
04:46 tonsofpcs I didn't say to watch while you go!
04:46 wannabe1987 no....season 1, ep 7?
04:47 wannabe1987 ep 9*
04:47 sndwrx I think he's suggesting that you watch it with your friend when you get there.  Not while you drive.  :P
04:47 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Of the new Doctor Who I take it?
04:47 wannabe1987 right....
04:47 wannabe1987 2005
04:47 wannabe1987 yes, i know
04:47 Monkeh|Lap Eccleston then
04:47 wannabe1987 he lives in tallmadge, but he was in GR tonight where/when the breakup happened
04:47 Monkeh|Lap He's.. different.
04:47 wannabe1987 i'm trying to watch dr who...
04:47 wannabe1987 lol
04:47 sndwrx Gotcha.
04:48 tonsofpcs lol Monkeh|Lap
04:48 wannabe1987 yes monkey
04:48 sndwrx I can't get into Dr. Who.
04:48 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Don't mess with the gas, man.
04:48 wannabe1987 i have so far
04:48 tonsofpcs also, I was severely disappointed not to find anything new cool in the christmas episode.
04:48 * wannabe1987 starts ep 10
04:48 sndwrx Then again, I haven't even tried, honestly.
04:49 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: It's a tip killer though.
04:49 wannabe1987 well, theres your issue, sndwrx
04:49 sndwrx I have no interest in it.
04:49 wannabe1987 after i watch it i have a british accent
04:49 wannabe1987 both talking AND in my mind
04:50 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: no, like "I like <x>.  <x> are cool."
04:50 wannabe1987 MOMMY!!!! are you my mommy?
04:50 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: :)
04:50 sndwrx My internal monologue takes on a British accent when I watch a lot of British programming.
04:50 wannabe1987 i've been to england....its not like i have a horrible "fake" accent....i won a "contest" held by our driver as the best in teh group :)
04:50 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Hm?
04:51 sndwrx wannabe1987: Cab driver, or something?  He was playing you up for a bigger tip.  :P
04:51 Hackbat joined #thegeekgroup
04:51 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: We appear to have a breakdown in communications.
04:51 wannabe1987 bus driver....
04:51 wannabe1987 we toured....we had a bus
04:52 wannabe1987 and he was scottish
04:52 sndwrx I'm pretty disappointed that I didn't travel to England when I had the chance.
04:52 wannabe1987 you'll have to go later....i'm going back sometime!
04:52 Hackbat <3
04:52 BotSteve Title: CHLLNGR - Music Video - "Change" on Vimeo
04:52 sndwrx Was going to pick up a friend and we were headed for Estonia for a month.
04:52 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: in the new christmas episode, I disliked the lack of "I like <x>.  <x> are cool."
04:52 Hackbat thiiiiiiissss song
04:53 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Yes, I got that much. Does not have any connection with what I was saying. :P
04:53 wannabe1987 what happened instead, sndwrx?
04:54 sndwrx Instead I did squat.
04:54 wannabe1987 awwww
04:54 * tonsofpcs points out the 'also,' denoting an aside
04:55 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Did not seem to be directed to me. ;P
04:55 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: But yeah, it wasn't that great. The xmas episodes usually aren't, though.
04:57 masterofmonks Also, BWA HA HA HA HA!!!
04:58 tonsofpcs also, "saw it coming" [the ending] like 5 minutes in...
04:59 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: I'm often able to predict the direction of Dr. Who episodes early on. It's how they do it which is interesting. :)
04:59 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: It IS half a kids show, remember.
05:00 leepod joined #thegeekgroup
05:00 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: the show is older than most kids!  Even if you count just the actual time it's had on-air!
05:00 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: I know this.
05:00 Bat-Mobile dinrartime
05:00 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: It's older than me and I haven't been a kid in quite a while
05:00 Toastdude Bye Bat-Mobile
05:00 Bat-Mobile left #thegeekgroup
05:00 wannabe1987 lee!

05:02 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: eh, it's british, that's how they all are :-p
05:03 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Oh, that's rich, coming from the most poorly educated first world country :P
05:04 wannabe1987 leepod: how does it feel to be 15?  how was your birthday?
05:04 tonsofpcs Monkeh|Lap: do you watch british TV? c'mon ;)
05:04 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: I imagine it feels a lot like being 14. :D
05:04 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: Nope.
05:04 wannabe1987 lol ik
05:04 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: I hardly watch any TV.
05:05 tonsofpcs what feels like being 14? watching top gear or graham norton?
05:05 wannabe1987 my question
05:05 Monkeh|Lap tonsofpcs: I got exposed to what kids watch these days the other day and a large portion of my brain died.
05:05 wannabe1987 agreed
05:05 Monkeh|Lap It consisted of christmas carols being sung with animal sounds.
05:06 wannabe1987 i watched yo gabba gabba the other day .  i'm worried and i want to know what drugs they were on
05:14 tonsofpcs who whatta whatta?
05:14 tonsofpcs that sounds like something jabber jaw would say...

05:16 tonsofpcs WTF.  My kids are going to watch reruns of reading rainbow.  Screw this crap.
05:16 wannabe1987 agreed
05:16 wannabe1987 i love reading rainbow
05:16 tonsofpcs (also, levar posted a tweet recently saying to watch for something new RR style)
05:17 wannabe1987 awesome
05:25 sndwrx Reading Rainbow is still around?
05:25 sndwrx Geez I haven't seen that in over 20 years.
05:25 wannabe1987 dunno, but levar burton still is :D
05:25 sndwrx I find it midly entertaining that Levar Burton tweets.
05:26 wannabe1987 why?
05:27 Coderjoe speaking of levar...
05:27 BotSteve Title: Cameo - Word Up - YouTube
05:28 sndwrx I don't know why.  I guess partially because when I think back to Reading Rainbow, I'm transported back the '80s [*shudder*], and anything associated with that era entertains me when it modernizes itself.
05:28 astro73|alice god. I forgot how BAD revenge of the sith is
05:28 Toastdude lol
05:28 wannabe1987 lol
05:29 wannabe1987 i'm loling at sndwrx

05:31 wannabe1987 hi Coderjoe
05:31 Coderjoe when first released, there was no "episode 4" or "a new hope"
05:31 Coderjoe it was just "star wars"
05:31 wannabe1987 yes.  i know
05:31 Coderjoe the other bits came later
05:31 wannabe1987 you damn purists!
05:31 astro73|alice Coderjoe: yes. I looked at the laserdisc covers today
05:31 wannabe1987 :P
05:32 sndwrx Much later.
05:32 astro73|alice wannabe1987: no, she didn't.
05:32 wannabe1987 my brother wants to go to the movies in theatre with me
05:32 sndwrx Not that I've seen any of them.
05:32 Coderjoe i mean even in the opening crawl
05:32 wannabe1987 annnnn ok
05:32 wannabe1987 ahhhH* ok
05:33 astro73|alice wannabe1987: all post-processed 3D is terrible. If it wasn't filmed in 3d, don't bother
05:33 wannabe1987 but he hasn't seen anything but ep II
05:33 wannabe1987 because (for some reason) all my parents own is epII
05:34 wannabe1987 and my parents have never seen starwars
05:34 astro73|alice so rent it
05:34 astro73|alice or torrent it
05:34 Coderjoe astro73|alice: heh. I have the "faces" laserdiscs.
05:34 wannabe1987 i should rent it and watch it with my brother :hmmm:
05:34 Coderjoe ugh
05:34 wannabe1987 except not
05:34 astro73|alice Coderjoe: we don't have many left. star wars, fantasia, and maybe a few others
05:34 wannabe1987 i'lll torrent it thx
05:34 Coderjoe rental will probably be the special special editions
05:35 sndwrx You guys are talking about the giant CD-looking laser disc, right?
05:35 astro73|alice sndwrx: is there another kind?
05:35 sndwrx I could swear that my old video discs were also called laser disc, but they were like giant floppy discs.
05:35 Coderjoe yes. the slightly-more-commercially-successful cousin to the CVD
05:36 sndwrx long before the CD and laser disc.
05:36 sndwrx You mean VCD.
05:36 Coderjoe no
05:36 wannabe1987 the 8track?
05:36 Coderjoe I mean CVD
05:36 Coderjoe Capacitive Video Disc
05:36 astro73|alice seems unlikely that the were laserdisc, then
05:36 sndwrx Ah, thought you were referring to the VCD which was more popular in Europe.
05:37 astro73|alice since i doubt it used lasers, and laserdics is a trademark
05:37 sndwrx astro73|alice: Right, but I vaguely recall seeing "laser disc" labeled on it.
05:37 Coderjoe It was also the 12-inch size that laserdisc was, but came in a hard cartridge you inserted into the player, then removed while the media stayed inside.
05:37 sndwrx I had the Hobbit and some Disney flicks on, whatever kind of disc it was.
05:37 sndwrx It was literally very much like a floppy disc for videos.
05:38 sndwrx Except it had some other sort of mechanism to expose the disc, rather than the sliding metal bit like on a 3.5" floppy.
05:38 sndwrx Yup that was it.
05:38 Coderjoe er, CED not CVD
05:38 Coderjoe
05:38 BotSteve Title: Capacitance Electronic Disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
05:38 sndwrx Although I'm pretty certain you didn't remove the cartridge on my player.
05:39 Coderjoe it was like a video record player
05:39 Coderjoe literally
05:39 Coderjoe it used a needle to read the media
05:39 astro73|alice weird
05:39 sndwrx All I know is that it was pretty bad ass to me back in something like 1983 or 1984
05:39 astro73|alice i didn't think you could get that kind of bandwidth from a needle
05:40 wannabe1987 astro and i weren't around then
05:40 Coderjoe LD was around at about the same time
05:40 sndwrx I had my own player in my bedroom.
05:40 sndwrx I thought laserdisc was a few years later.
05:40 astro73|alice .w laserdisc
05:40 BotSteve "LaserDisc (LD) was a home video format and the first commercial optical disc storage medium." -
05:40 Coderjoe hmm
05:40 Coderjoe yea
05:40 sndwrx But I didn't follow that kind of stuff closely so I'm going by memory.
05:40 Coderjoe CED was invented in 64
05:40 Coderjoe but LD was also around in the 80s
05:41 sndwrx aha
05:41 Coderjoe mm
05:41 Coderjoe came out in the states in 78
05:41 astro73|alice except apparently RCA really fucked up CED and didn't get it going until the early 80's
05:42 sndwrx Yeah, seems like my player was RCA.
05:42 sndwrx I remember looking through the videos at Millard's in Stanton.
05:43 sndwrx One of the only things I remember well from that era, was that I asked to see Richard Harris star in Camelot for my seventh birthday.
05:43 sndwrx And I did.
05:45 wannabe1987 nice
05:45 Ponko hmmm
05:45 wannabe1987 its a brit!
05:45 Ponko indeed
05:46 Ponko a bored brit
05:46 wannabe1987 better than a dead brit
05:46 Ponko hungry aswell
05:46 Coderjoe i've got a pioneer CLD-V121G on the table behind me
05:46 wannabe1987 or a brit with an alien inside
05:46 Ponko yeah
05:46 Ponko ........
05:46 Coderjoe it does LD (single-sided, so I need to flip it), but also CD+G
05:46 wannabe1987 i'm watching dr who!
05:46 wannabe1987 dont' mind me
05:46 wannabe1987 i have a mtg at 9....hmmmm
05:47 Coderjoe magic the gathering?
05:47 wannabe1987 meeting
05:47 wannabe1987 fuck M:TG
05:47 Ponko lol
05:47 Ponko lol magic the gathering :P
05:47 * tonsofpcs hands wannabe1987 an island for her mtg
05:47 sndwrx Coderjoe: You a karaoke fan?
05:47 Coderjoe f abbreviations
05:47 wannabe1987 why an island?
05:48 Coderjoe tonsofpcs: I don't think she's playing blue
05:48 tonsofpcs because having a meeting on a swamp, mountain, plains, or forest isn't as fun
05:48 wannabe1987 its in a church....
05:48 tonsofpcs Coderjoe: it is the best card in the game, regardless.
05:48 Coderjoe even less fun are the frozen variety
05:48 wannabe1987 i never played that game....
05:48 wannabe1987 and if masterofmonks ever gets toast and lee togheter, i might :P
05:49 tonsofpcs oo, it could be a snow-covered island!
05:49 Coderjoe i haven't played in over 10 years
05:49 sndwrx I've never played Magic, but I have played Munchkin!
05:49 Coderjoe and I haven't really bought new cards in just about as long
05:49 tonsofpcs I haven't played in over a year.
05:49 sndwrx That was kinda fun.
05:49 Coderjoe I have picked up sets like unglued and unhinged
05:49 wannabe1987 i hung out with magic players at MCC tho....
05:49 sndwrx If I had anyone to play Munchkin with here, I'd probably buy a set or two.
05:50 tonsofpcs where is here?
05:50 sndwrx Grand Rapids area.
05:50 * tonsofpcs bribes the GM with food
05:50 astro73|alice sndwrx: I love munchkin
05:50 astro73|alice and more sets is always better
05:50 sndwrx Really?  Sweet!
05:50 wannabe1987 oh noes
05:50 tonsofpcs there's way too many expansions for munchkin now.
05:50 wannabe1987 now i have to introduce you two
05:51 tonsofpcs Seriously, there's three CHRISTMAS expansions.
05:51 sndwrx I've never cared for games like that, but I had a pretty good time playing it last summer.
05:51 Coderjoe for MTG, iirc, there is a weekly event at Goldmine Comics on 54th street just a hair west of Division (on the north side of the street, next to the Shell gas station at the corner)
05:51 astro73|alice ok, the christmas ones you can probably skip
05:51 astro73|alice as well as axecop munchkin
05:51 tonsofpcs you just need munchkin and munchkin2.
05:51 tonsofpcs anything else is overkill.
05:51 Coderjoe ... on friday nights
05:51 wannabe1987 my friends brother owns alpha players on 44th and division
05:52 Coderjoe (just to cement the "dateless geek/nerd" thing...)
05:52 wannabe1987 well, its on division somewhere :/
05:52 wannabe1987 lol
05:52 wannabe1987 astro prolly knows ben as well
05:52 astro73|alice big ben?
05:52 wannabe1987 mhm
05:53 astro73|alice yeah, i played his game for a while
05:53 wannabe1987 he told me this when we were dating :shudder:
05:53 wannabe1987 with corwin?
05:53 wannabe1987 but his brother owns a card store
05:53 astro73|alice we had a second round, with john's friend katie
05:53 wannabe1987 john....anthony?
05:53 astro73|alice tonsofpcs: I enjoy some of the themed ones
05:53 astro73|alice wannabe1987: john wood, my friend
05:53 tonsofpcs astro73|alice: yea, just don't mix them.   Blender (sorry, Munchkin 7) kills it
05:54 wannabe1987 oooo ok
05:54 astro73|alice tonsofpcs: I thought mixing it was half the fun
05:54 astro73|alice and munchkin blender is pretty much optional for that
05:54 sndwrx I played Munchkin with seven or eight other people, and the Munchkin, Cthulhu, Super and Fu decks.
05:55 astro73|alice also, i'm pretty sure being a munchkin purist/hipster is not allowed
05:55 Coderjoe I've not done karaoke in awhile. Used to go to Village Inn on thursdays with friends
05:55 sndwrx Yeah I was under the impression that it's practically a requirement to mix the decks.
05:56 tonsofpcs Mind you, having once had a Two-handed Laser Maser Fo Faser of Doom +1, I suppose it is still possible to allow exceptions.
05:57 sndwrx Coderjoe: I was teasing, because of your mention of CD+G.
05:57 wannabe1987 my friend is apparently well known for karoke in GR.
05:57 tonsofpcs astro73|alice: well, when you have munchkin+expansion combined, then you have Super + expansion, then something else + expansion, etc. mixing them just gets annoying.
05:57 astro73|alice i mean, why wouldn't you want your vampire orc wielding space blasters?
05:57 Bat-Mobile joined #thegeekgroup
05:57 wannabe1987 he's filipino and fancies himself a country singer
05:57 wannabe1987 HI BATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
05:57 Coderjoe well, I have messed with authoring CD+G and have a few CD+G discs
05:57 astro73|alice .w CD+G
05:57 BotSteve "CD+G (also known as CD+Graphics) is an extension of the compact disc standard that can present low-resolution graphics alongside the audio data on the disc when played on a compatible device." -
05:58 Bat-Mobile hey kelly
05:58 wannabe1987 :)
05:58 astro73|alice it's almost as good as mixing flux decks
05:59 wannabe1987 you've walked into an 80s/gamer/who knows what convo
05:59 wannabe1987 good luck
05:59 wannabe1987 it all started with reading rainbo
05:59 Ponko still shocked by that
06:00 tonsofpcs astro73|alice: I saw a new fluxx in the game store last week and was saddened...
06:00 wannabe1987 what, reading rainbow?
06:00 astro73|alice tonsofpcs: oh? what is it?
06:00 tonsofpcs i forget
06:00 tonsofpcs *goes to the LL page*
06:00 astro73|alice because i don't think anything can top monty python fluxx
06:00 Ponko no doesn't matter
06:00 tonsofpcs Star Fluxx
06:00 * wannabe1987 is playing with tin foil
06:01 wannabe1987 why does it rip?
06:01 sndwrx How do magnets work?
06:01 tonsofpcs flux
06:01 Coderjoe sndwrx: miracles
06:02 Ponko what about a Flux Capacitor
06:02 Coderjoe all capacitors are flux capacitors
06:02 astro73|alice tonsofpcs: I think SciFi could totally use a fluxx game
06:02 sndwrx I want to play Munhkin Impossible, the Good the Bad and the Munchkin, and Munchkin Booty.
06:02 wannabe1987 sndwrx:
06:02 BotSteve Title: Let me google that for you
06:02 astro73|alice mashing together all the SF tropes into a terrible concotion
06:02 sndwrx wannabe1987: Great, thanks for that.
06:02 wannabe1987 you're welcome
06:03 Coderjoe it wasn't a reference to the ICP thing?
06:03 wannabe1987 the day after christmas sales at meijer were a bad bad bad thing
06:03 sndwrx Yes, it was.  :P
06:03 Coderjoe ok
06:03 wannabe1987 i miss most references because i'm sheltered and a nongeek
06:03 astro73|alice sndwrx: I don't think i've played any of those
06:03 Coderjoe .
06:03 Ponko it took Emmett L Brown 30 years and his entire family fortune to come up with that Coderjoe sndwrx
06:03 astro73|alice wannabe1987: start torrenting classic scifi
06:03 wannabe1987 i don't have enough disk space
06:04 Bat-Mobile does anyone here own a copy of the game Uplink?
06:04 sndwrx astro73|alice: Seems like they'd be fun together.
06:04 tonsofpcs astro73|alice: the keepers have abilities.
06:05 astro73|alice sndwrx: Cool
06:05 astro73|alice tonsofpcs: really? lame
06:05 Coderjoe "How do magnets work?" is a reference to the ICP song "Miracles"
06:05 tonsofpcs video on the bottom of
06:05 sndwrx astro73|alice: Don't you think?  Kind of an odd combination of deck themes.
06:05 wannabe1987 somoene should invite me over nextweek (not tues or weds) and force me to watch classic scifi
06:05 wannabe1987 :P
06:06 wannabe1987 better than me torrenting it all :P
06:06 astro73|alice sndwrx: that just makes it more hillarious
06:06 astro73|alice wannabe1987: there's too much. You have to spend a lot of time visiting
06:06 sndwrx Entirely why I want to play it sometime!
06:06 Experimentonomen joined #thegeekgroup
06:06 wannabe1987 lend it to me then....this computer has a cd drive
06:07 astro73|alice i can still only fit 6 episodes on a DVD
06:07 wannabe1987
06:07 BotSteve Title: No Friday in Samoa | Blogs
06:07 astro73|alice 4 as DVD video
06:09 astro73|alice wannabe1987: do you want me to start telling you how many discs are required for shows?
06:10 wannabe1987 i don't even know what shows you're talking about
06:10 Experimentonomen *yawn*
06:10 wannabe1987 hi Experimentonomen
06:10 Experimentonomen guten morgen ladies
06:11 wannabe1987 i think i'm the only lady here, but thanks
06:11 Kaytee So I'm gonna run a windows xp VM just for skype in linux
06:12 Kaytee because linux skype can't handle conference calls and won't ever be fixed
06:12 Kaytee and current skype won't run in wine
06:12 Coderjoe you should be able to fit about 10 episodes on a DL disc, if they are scene-sized SD encodes
06:12 sndwrx Sounds like a crummy reason to succumb to Windows.
06:12 Kaytee sndwrx: all my friends use skype
06:12 astro73|alice wannabe1987: Babylon 5: 146 episodes and movies. TNG: 195 episodes. BSG: 98 episodes
06:12 Kaytee and it's better than actually USING windows
06:13 Kaytee which atm I'm forced to for conference calls
06:13 wannabe1987 i'm working on acquiring sg1
06:13 Coderjoe SG1, SGA, SGU
06:13 astro73|alice Kaytee: I've done conference audio on linux skype
06:13 Kaytee astro73|alice: can't join existing ones
06:13 Kaytee you can START them
06:13 Kaytee but they have to call you in to join ghtm
06:13 Kaytee the host does
06:13 astro73|alice Coderjoe: I don't have those files anymore. But I know SG1 alone has >200
06:13 wannabe1987 Coderjoe: i've seen sga
06:13 Coderjoe I was given season 1 of SG1 on dvd for christmas. (I've already seen much of the show, though)
06:14 Coderjoe yes
06:14 wannabe1987 yes, astro, theres 10 seasons :/
06:14 Kaytee they can invite you to a chat
06:14 wannabe1987 season one is at 53%
06:14 Kaytee but only call host can bring linux users into the call
06:14 astro73|alice wannabe1987: yes. Plus 6 of SGA. I didn't bother watching SGU
06:14 Coderjoe there are also three SG post-series movies
06:14 sndwrx Coderjoe: Haha, don't forget not to talk in that channel otherwise you'll be penalized.
06:14 Kaytee that's broken as hell and I'm not okay with it
06:14 wannabe1987 i've seen all 6 seasons of SGA
06:14 Coderjoe sndwrx: I am well aware of how idlerpg works.
06:15 astro73|alice and I haven't even dug into anime
06:15 Coderjoe iirc, I was playing the first incarnation of it when it was created.
06:15 wannabe1987 noes!  not anime!!!!
06:15 astro73|alice anime is awesome
06:16 Coderjoe iirc, SGU was just starting to get their footing when it was cancelled
06:16 astro73|alice they do wild and crazy stuff that's impractical in a live-action format
06:16 sndwrx Coderjoe: K, I assumed you were familiar but was reminding you since you've said quite a few things in the channel it seems.  :P
06:16 Coderjoe astro73|alice: there are japanese live action movies that do rather weird things, largely thanks to (usually-crappy) CG
06:16 wannabe1987 well, i've never seen anime, but ....
06:17 astro73|alice Coderjoe: but on the budget of a show?
06:17 Coderjoe i have not said that much there. perhaps a little before creating a character and a little when the bot was missing, and then one line just now
06:18 sndwrx Gotcha.
06:18 sndwrx Didn't realize the bot ever went missing.
06:18 Experimentonomen stargate = lame :P
06:18 Coderjoe astro73|alice: the budgets are pretty low
06:18 astro73|alice wannabe1987: My friend Ken used to say that the three essential anime are Ghost in the Shell, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Trigun
06:18 sndwrx But there was a day or two that I didn't pay attention to it.
06:18 astro73|alice Coderjoe: Yeah. Animation just make the whole experience better.
06:18 Coderjoe GitS yes. NGE, yeah. trigun? meh
06:19 sndwrx Experimentonomen: I thought the original Stargate movie was okay, but I don't watch any of the tv shows.
06:19 Coderjoe dirty pair.
06:19 astro73|alice I would say in this context, Cowboy Bebop is a better choice
06:19 Coderjoe and yes, cowboy bebop
06:19 Hackbat Bebop! :D
06:22 astro73|alice I'm also a big fan of Fullmetal Alchemist (I prefer Brotherhood over the original)
06:22 * Experimentonomen doesent watch tv anymore
06:23 astro73|alice I also have Outlaw Star and Vandread for spacey scifi, but they're not as good as previous suggestions
06:23 wannabe1987 DALEKS
06:23 astro73|alice or you could just watch doctor who
06:23 wannabe1987 i have been, thanks
06:23 astro73|alice i noticed
06:23 wannabe1987 meeting at 9, who needs sleep :P
06:24 Experimentonomen i dont think i've even seen dr who
06:24 wannabe1987 i'm sorry
06:24 astro73|alice well, i'm feeling sleepy
06:24 wannabe1987 then, you should sleep
06:24 astro73|alice i'm horribly out of shape; drumming in rock band wears me out
06:26 wannabe1987 lol
06:26 wannabe1987 it'd wear anyone out :P
06:26 astro73|alice oh, ok
06:26 astro73|alice that's good
06:26 wannabe1987 it wore me out

06:27 Coderjoe i'm horribly out of shape. I used to be pretty good at DDR and the like, but now I'm either bored (because the song is mentally easy) or dead (because my body can no longer keep up)
06:27 * Kaytee in great shape
06:27 wannabe1987 poor joe
06:28 Coderjoe and if you play In The Groove in the arcade and get the credits... read them :D

06:29 wannabe1987 Kaytee?  are you new?  are you female?  i'm so confused as to who you are and where you came from....
06:30 Kaytee wannabe1987: somewhat, no, and you've talked to me before
06:30 wannabe1987 if you're not female why do you have a female name?
06:30 Experimentonomen transvestite ? :P
06:31 wannabe1987 from translyvania?
06:31 Kaytee because pet name from bdsm-y boyfriend
06:31 wannabe1987 ah
06:31 Coderjoe you missed a line, wannabe1987
06:31 wannabe1987 it was written the same time i wrote :P
06:32 Coderjoe wannabe1987: regarding TV shows... what about MST3k?
06:32 * wannabe1987 needs to finish packing
06:33 * Experimentonomen wants more time in bed
06:33 wannabe1987 ..................
06:33 Coderjoe though I suppose some of the references in it might be more difficult for younger viewers
06:33 Experimentonomen i HATE early mornings

07:10 * CaptainNiobe tacklehugs Bat-Mobile
07:10 lwq1996 jackass is so funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
07:10 Bat-Mobile hi CaptainNiobe!
07:10 wannabe1987 ...
07:11 CaptainNiobe g'day, battie, how are we?
07:11 Ponko lions no running game only passing Ravens great passing defense in the AFC if not the NFL
07:11 Ponko but the Chargers handsomely walked over Baltimore and got battered by Detroit that's the point i'm making Bat-Mobile
07:12 Ponko but then again the chargers are like thick custard inconsistent
07:12 Bat-Mobile lions don't need a running game Ponko, throw three times and if it doesn't work, punt
07:12 Bat-Mobile (:
07:12 Ponko lol
07:13 Ponko well against Ed Reed and that great Ravens Secondary that'll be a common occurance
07:13 Ponko but how the Chargers beat them and lost to the lions idk
07:13 wannabe1987 i swear, i don't have something packed that i have to have packed
07:13 Ponko on paper the Chargers lose to the Ravens and beat the Lions
07:14 Ponko wannabe1987: sods law
07:14 wannabe1987 huh?
07:14 Ponko and lwq1996 OF COURSE IT'S funny
07:14 Ponko .ud sods law

07:14 wannabe1987 thanks Ponko
07:15 Ponko now BotSteve answer this question CORRECTLY
07:15 Ponko BotSteve: should go and make my egg bacon sandwich and stay on IRC?
07:15 BotSteve Absolutely

07:40 Toastdude BotSteve: "sehr"?
07:40 BotSteve Toastdude: Unable to guess your crazy moon language, sorry.

07:44 Ponko BotSteve: "Wie gehts?"
07:44 Ponko BotSteve: "Wie gehts?"?
07:44 BotSteve Ponko: Unable to guess your crazy moon language, sorry.
07:44 SitkaGrown Hello, I'm a bit tired
07:44 Ponko yep he's not well
07:45 wannabe1987 hello SitkaGrown
07:45 SitkaGrown Hello guys
07:45 Toastdude I have seen you on the forums, though
07:46 Ponko hmm Bat-Mobile if this lions team had a certain Barry on there team i could see this be a first SB for Detroit
07:46 wannabe1987 they kissed
07:46 Ponko who did?
07:46 wannabe1987 the dr and rose
07:46 Ponko ah yes
07:46 wannabe1987 have you not seen dr who?!
07:47 wannabe1987 ok good
07:47 SitkaGrown Yea, I'm not much of a PC  guy , I'm a little more like Joe S. (Fabrication/repair)
07:47 Ponko -_- what a dumb question for a brit who has the ACTUAL original Dr Who
07:47 wannabe1987 you askeed the question "who did?"
07:47 wannabe1987 its known that i'm watching dr who
07:47 wannabe1987 i just finished season 1!!!!!!
07:48 Ponko yeah but i forgot that
07:48 wannabe1987 ok lol
07:49 SitkaGrown Later Guys, I'm a little of my league ,LOL
07:49 NeWtoz no idea if anyone can help, but here it goes:
07:49 Ponko don't you agree Bat-Mobile NeWtoz that if the Lions had Barry playing for them RIGHT now they'd be going to the Super Bowl if not winning
07:49 NeWtoz :)
07:49 wannabe1987 bye SitkaGrown
07:49 NeWtoz I don't deal with what ifs
07:50 Ponko yeah but just think about it?
07:50 Toastdude Bye SitkaGrown
07:50 Ponko laters SitkaGrown
07:50 Ponko come back man it's actually fun here :)
07:51 wannabe1987 ok so david tennant is hot
07:51 wannabe1987 and i'm going to bed!
07:51 NeWtoz I'm coding in python and getting results from a sqlite database, it outputs it as [(u'This is the first test quote',)], how do I get it to now show the brackets and parentheses and that u
07:51 Ponko lol
07:51 Toastdude Night wannabe-zz
07:51 NeWtoz get it to not show*
07:52 Ponko idk
07:52 Ponko clone Barry Sanders?
07:52 NeWtoz well, we did just pick up a new RB
07:52 Ponko Bat-Mobile: what are we playing for on sunday?
07:52 NeWtoz from the saints practice squad
07:52 Bat-Mobile NeWtoz: you're probably using print to get that output, right?
07:52 Ponko who loses buys the beers?
07:52 NeWtoz something similar
07:53 * wannabe-zz wants a tardis
07:53 wannabe-zz kthxbai
07:53 NeWtoz phenny.say(str(result))
07:53 Bat-Mobile ah
07:53 NeWtoz I'm stumbling through this
07:53 NeWtoz first time using python and sqlite
07:53 Bat-Mobile the kludgy way to do it is phenny.say(str(result[0]))
07:54 Bat-Mobile because the brackets indicate that it's returning a 1-item list
07:54 Electricguy joined #thegeekgroup
07:54 Bat-Mobile you say [0] and you get the first element of that list
07:54 Bat-Mobile try that, see if it works
07:54 NeWtoz the [0] removed the []
07:54 Ponko NeWtoz: be glad that you're not relying on a school teacher to be your QB
07:55 NeWtoz I now just get (u'This is the first test quote',) instead of [(u'This is the first test quote',)]
07:55 NeWtoz progress
07:55 Ponko yay
07:55 Bat-Mobile ok
07:56 Bat-Mobile then do result[0][0]
07:56 Bat-Mobile see what that does
07:56 NeWtoz LOL, yup!
07:56 NeWtoz crazy
07:57 NeWtoz there probably is a command so I don't have that silly workaround
07:58 Ponko Bat-Mobile: be glad that Nicklas Lidstrom DOESN'T know Seroster
07:58 NeWtoz Thanks Bat-Mobile
07:58 NeWtoz I've been tempted to move to a .txt file this entire time
07:59 NeWtoz now I probably won't need to
07:59 Bat-Mobile NeWtoz: there probably is.  pastebin or gist a code snippet and I'll look at it
08:01 NeWtoz
08:01 BotSteve Title: Code Upload - Untitled - a free pastebin for sharing code with colleagues
08:01 NeWtoz there is more, but that is all that matters
08:02 NeWtoz oh, and ignore that insult line
08:02 NeWtoz that does nothing
08:04 NeWtoz unless my db is structured weirdly, I don't know the issue
08:05 NeWtoz I guess I could look though the tgg.db
08:05 Ponko it's a pity us 3 aren't in the same room
08:05 Ponko as in practically
08:06 Bat-Mobile ok
08:07 Toastdude Anyone know what time the event is going on at the lab?
08:07 Ponko 8PM CST
08:07 Bat-Mobile NeWtoz: so that SELECT query is going to return one and only one result, right?
08:07 Ponko or CT
08:08 NeWtoz that one does, yes
08:08 Bat-Mobile ok
08:09 Bat-Mobile if you only need one result, then you don't have to do fetchall()
08:09 Bat-Mobile you can do fetchone()
08:09 Bat-Mobile that'll return you one item, rather than an entire list
08:09 Bat-Mobile if you're gonna get multiple results, then you want fetchall()
08:09 Ponko Bat-Mobile NeWtoz Toastdude it would be fun if we in the same actual room i'd pop my head round the kitchen and ask who wants a sandwich
08:09 Bat-Mobile but something else that's cool that you can do is you don't even need to use the fetch commands
08:09 Toastdude Lol...
08:09 NeWtoz I was working previously with multiple results, but switched to that to debug
08:10 NeWtoz but that could also be my problem
08:10 * NeWtoz tests
08:10 Bat-Mobile you can just do
08:10 Bat-Mobile db_curr.execute("SELECT WHATEVER")
08:10 Bat-Mobile for item in db_curr:  do stuff
08:10 Bat-Mobile which is really the pythonic thing tod
08:10 Bat-Mobile to do
08:12 NeWtoz I was doing that earlier, but I was having more problems, so I switched to a simpler thing of just 1 object instead of many
08:12 NeWtoz fetchone makes it so I only need [0] instead of [0][0], which makes sense
08:12 NeWtoz at least I understand how it all works
08:13 NeWtoz now to go crazy
08:13 Bat-Mobile (:
08:13 Bat-Mobile have fun
08:13 NeWtoz fyi, I'm making a quotedb
08:14 NeWtoz where in chat you .+quote <quote> and it adds it to the db
08:14 NeWtoz and you can recall the quotes by id or eventually by keyword, or just a random one
08:15 NeWtoz there are too many out of context quotes floating around in IRC that are not being captured
08:15 NeWtoz but if I figure this out, I can do other things
08:18 lwq1996 night all
08:18 lwq1996 im hitting the hay
08:24 NeWtoz Bat-Mobile, in python, in loops and if statements and whatnot, is the indenting and spacing responsible for what is actually part of the loop/statement/whatev?
08:28 Bat-Mobile NeWtoz: yes
08:28 Bat-Mobile exactly
08:29 Bat-Mobile it's a language that enforces good indentation conventions.  :]
08:29 NeWtoz I like it
08:29 NeWtoz in a small way
08:29 Bat-Mobile me too
08:29 Bat-Mobile leave me a tell if you have any other questions
08:29 * Bat-Mobile sleeps
08:29 NeWtoz but it makes me want every coder to learn python first
08:30 * Experimentonomen wishes he could sleep :/
08:30 NeWtoz learn python!
08:30 NeWtoz if you don't already know it
08:30 Experimentonomen im NOT a coder or programmer or anything

14:13 Monkeh They were so helpful and pushed themselves off the board for me.
14:14 producerbill2 ok
14:14 producerbill2 what are you working on?
14:14 Monkeh producerbill2: Fixing and repurposing a small PSU.
14:15 producerbill2 ok how small
14:15 Monkeh Uh, 12V 2A iirc.
14:15 Monkeh And 5V 2A
14:15 producerbill2 very useful though
14:16 Monkeh Yep. It's going to power all my little 5V and 12V devices without requiring a small army of wallwarts
14:16 producerbill2 nice

14:24 producerbill2 nice work
14:24 producerbill2 looks good
14:24 Monkeh I imagine that took a few minutes.
14:24 westmi joined #thegeekgroup
14:25 Sgt_Lemming just a couple
14:25 Sgt_Lemming doing all the 0603 resistors and SOT-23 MOSFET's was a PITA
14:25 Monkeh Yeees.
14:26 producerbill2 we need to get some solder paste and a heat gun
14:26 Monkeh producerbill2: Solder paste is great.
14:27 producerbill2 ya
14:27 Sgt_Lemming you've seen the business card PCB I am working on Monkeh?
14:27 Monkeh Sgt_Lemming: Yep
14:28 Sgt_Lemming yeah, gonna either get that one professionally done, or solder stencil, paste and reflow it
14:28 Sgt_Lemming cause fuck hand soldering 160 0603 LED's
14:28 producerbill2 ya
14:29 Electricguy joined #thegeekgroup
14:29 producerbill2 I want to build a led array,,,, but I don't know enough to make it happened
14:29 producerbill2 happen
14:29 Electricguy ok, got the new PSU installed now! :)
14:29 Sgt_Lemming high power or LED display array producerbill2?
14:31 producerbill2 ya, something like that
14:31 producerbill2 I would also like to build a 3. color led
14:31 Sgt_Lemming err, which one
14:31 producerbill2 array
14:31 Sgt_Lemming High power as in lighting, or LED Display array as in scrolling text/graphics across it?
14:32 producerbill2 why not both
14:32 producerbill2 smile
14:32 Sgt_Lemming it "can" be done
14:32 Sgt_Lemming it would be incredibly hard to do
14:33 Sgt_Lemming high power mosfets tend to have high switching times, so the displays refresh rate would suffer
14:33 producerbill2 I see
14:33 JustoStyle joined #thegeekgroup
14:34 producerbill2 I guess I don't know
14:35 jonnybeats joined #thegeekgroup
14:35 Sgt_Lemming you can pretty easily get 100 watt LED's now as well
14:36 Sgt_Lemming so making a display out of them, while cool, would be ever so slightly insane
14:36 Sgt_Lemming a display with the same res as mine at that scale would draw upto 16 kilowatt...
14:37 producerbill2 ok it should be inside friendly
14:38 Sgt_Lemming standard 5mm LED's should be fine thehn
14:38 Sgt_Lemming then*
14:39 Sgt_Lemming the hardware design is relatively simple, just do it row and column like I have, then it's a matter of 1 IO pin per row/column
14:39 Sgt_Lemming to turn on an LED, you just turn on the corresponding two IO pins
14:39 Sgt_Lemming simple as shit to implement/design/program
14:41 NeWtoz I have a led message board thing
14:41 NeWtoz I need to work on that sometime
14:42 producerbill2 I would like it to have a ton of leds 200+  leds
14:42 masterofmonks Also, Seroster.
14:43 Seroster ?
14:43 Sgt_Lemming producerbill2, if you do 8 rows, that is enough to display any character in the ASCII dataset, then do 25 columns
14:43 Sgt_Lemming there's your 200LED's
14:43 Sgt_Lemming keep in mind though, cost, complexity, power, etc, etc
14:43 producerbill2 sure
14:44 producerbill2 gtg talk to you all later

14:47 Sgt_Lemming Electricguy, scoll back up a bit and I posted a link to the completed giant 7 segment board
14:48 Electricguy i can't see any link

14:48 BotSteve Title: Picasa Web Albums - Lemming Dixon - Touch Pro 2
14:49 Electricguy thx
14:49 Electricguy hehehe nice :P
14:50 Sgt_Lemming soldered 35 0603 resistors, 35 sot-23 mosfets, had one soldering snafu
14:50 Sgt_Lemming not a bad effor
14:50 Sgt_Lemming effort*
14:50 Electricguy hehehe :P
14:50 Electricguy yeah, soldering SMD is a bit time consuming
14:50 JA12 speaking of leds.. I just bought a led flahslight. it's cheap but works. much better than no light when you need one
14:50 Sgt_Lemming just a bit...
14:51 Electricguy JA12 nice :)
14:51 Sgt_Lemming JA12, I have 2 LED flashlights (a little 18650 powered handlight, and a 14500 powered headlamp) in my EDC bag, and a 900LM LED headlight on my bike
14:51 Electricguy i got one of these flashlights
14:51 Electricguy and a LED Lenser L7

14:53 JA12 Electricguy: those dx lights are bright I hear
14:54 Xela joined #thegeekgroup
14:54 Sgt_Lemming they are
14:54 Sgt_Lemming 2 of mine are DX lights and they are FUCKING bright
14:54 Xela Hello everybody
14:54 injektion Hardware is too much of a commodity
14:54 tonsofpcs hi
14:55 Electricguy JA12, yeah, i measured the output at work. and it gives 896Lumen. so the specs aren't lying :)
14:55 Xela I have here with me a laptop, a PC, a router to which all can connect (LAN) and the need to copy all data from the laptop's HDD to a drive inside the PC.
14:55 JA12 I just needed something I can keep with me and it doesn't matter much if I lose it
14:55 Electricguy hehe oki :P
14:55 injektion Take laptops if something was to break it's best to just buy a new one
14:56 Electricguy yeah cheap flashlights are always handy
14:57 Xela Anybody have any ideas on how to pull an entire HDD via LAN?
14:57 tonsofpcs yes.
14:57 tonsofpcs But the drive needs to not be mounted.
14:57 Sgt_Lemming Xela, does the laptop boot?
14:58 tonsofpcs I'm pretty sure you can pipe dd through uucp
14:58 Xela So live-CD, keep hdd unmounted and then uucp?
14:58 Sgt_Lemming Xela, you running linux or windows on your pc?
14:59 Xela The laptop boots, (so does the PC), both are by default Windows but the PC is a ubuntu dual boot and nothing is stopping me from putting *nix on the laptop
15:00 Sgt_Lemming Xela, just use a live cd on the laptop
15:01 Sgt_Lemming there are plenty of live cd's that will let you dump a HDD image to an SMB or NFS share
15:01 JA12 like parted magic
15:01 Xela doh...I didn't even think of that
15:07 NeWtoz coding session over
15:08 NeWtoz BotSteve, tell BatSteve I'm almost done with my module, let me how you want to proceed
15:08 BotSteve NeWtoz: I'll pass that on when BatSteve is around.
15:11 JA12 NeWtoz: "know" :)
15:11 NeWtoz ?
15:11 JA12 missing word
15:11 NeWtoz OH
15:12 NeWtoz meh
15:12 JA12 he'll understand without it
15:14 NeWtoz yeah

15:15 Andyroo_ Howdy folks
15:15 NeWtoz granted my code is approved
15:15 NeWtoz first time writing python, but all should be well
15:16 NeWtoz time to go get my car and head back to Grand Rapids
15:16 NeWtoz and if I'm not too tired, I'll head to the party

15:26 Coderjoe dd into uucp?
15:26 Electricguy :P
15:26 Sgt_Lemming I love the cat in the sink
15:26 Coderjoe only if you have enough room on the source end of the uucp and have the sync set up
15:27 Electricguy yeah XD
15:41 Seroster ooo
15:41 Seroster Lol
15:42 Sgt_Lemming Seroster, scroll up, posted a pic of the completed 7 segment driver board
15:42 Seroster cba
15:43 Sgt_Lemming ...?
15:44 Seroster Odd.
15:44 Sgt_Lemming ...?
15:44 Seroster I am messing with cs
15:45 Coderjoe ha
15:45 Coderjoe er, meant "heh"
15:45 Coderjoe built a 7segment driver in minecraft
15:45 Coderjoe redstone is a pain in the butt
15:46 Coderjoe especially when you abuse it and cause the server to bog down
15:47 Sgt_Lemming Coderjoe, this is a 5 digit 7 segment countdown clock driver board
15:47 Sgt_Lemming with interface buttons for judges and competitors
15:48 Coderjoe ah
15:48 Sgt_Lemming as well as outputs for revolving lights and a siren
15:49 Coderjoe I was looking at making a clock in minecraft, with the help of a craftbook IC that, iirc, gave server time. (or perhaps I was going to calibrate the clock pulse to be about one second and then do a set-and-run thing. I forget)
15:50 injektion This makes me sad on so many levels
15:50 Sgt_Lemming Coderjoe <--- I'd rather do real electronics
15:51 Coderjoe yeah. I was just trying to challenge myself in minecraft
15:51 Sgt_Lemming implement that in MC and I will be impressed
15:52 Coderjoe is that a 10x16 matrix display?
15:53 Sgt_Lemming yup
15:53 Sgt_Lemming with full row and column drive
15:53 Coderjoe yeah... that might be difficult in MC... redstone SUCKS
15:53 Sgt_Lemming yup
15:54 Coderjoe best matrix display I've seen was pre-programmed to what it was supposed to display
15:54 Sgt_Lemming yeah
15:55 Coderjoe there is no real way to do a multiplexed display with redstone. it is too slow and burns out if switched too fast
15:55 * Sgt_Lemming nods
15:59 Coderjoe it was quite difficult to do one 7-segment without cheating and using craftbook ICs for multi-input gates or wireless ICs for separating things a bit more
16:00 Coderjoe and without doing the cheap hack method with long bus lines from the display going back to a series of number-state decoders (one decoder for 0, which set all the segments for 0, etc)
16:01 Coderjoe so I guess that setup would be a long series of address decoder circuits with the outputs tied to the segments needed to count that address
16:01 Coderjoe and I need to go
16:04 Seroster Mrgh
16:04 Seroster My board isnt big enough for this motstack
16:05 Sgt_Lemming heh
16:17 Sgt_Lemming Seroster, found a source for NST's here the other day
16:18 Sgt_Lemming $75 for a 12kv 30ma, $100 for a 15kv 30ma, he can provide us with upto 15kv 200ma!
16:21 Seroster Right...
16:21 Seroster So
16:21 Seroster ..

16:45 Sgt_Lemming nope, that is the same pic as earlier
16:45 Sgt_Lemming haven't worked on it since that one
16:45 Sgt_Lemming well, not much
16:46 tesla4d I *knew* it was a bad idea to try to load X-Plane 10 on my computer.
16:46 tesla4d Well, time to buy a new one, I guess...
16:48 tonsofpcs tesla4d: a new computer or a new plane? :)
16:48 tonsofpcs also, let me and BatSteve know if you find a good combat flight sim.
16:48 tonsofpcs (preferrably free/cheap)
16:49 * tonsofpcs has a flight yoke and throttle quadrant on a table in his living room that needs to be placed in front of the 100" screen and go for a fly
16:49 * tesla4d_ is indescribably jealous.
16:50 tesla4d_ I honestly don't know if anybody makes combat flight sims anymore.
16:50 Seroster Hey tesla
16:50 Seroster Got a new honda yet?
16:50 tonsofpcs I found one that looked interesting when we were actively looking for them but I can't find it in my logs
16:50 tonsofpcs honda? his name is tesla, go for a roadster!
16:50 tesla4d_ Seroster: Yeah, I got one a few months ago, and I know I told you about it.
16:51 tesla4d_ New car, same as the old care.
16:51 tesla4d_ *car
16:51 Seroster <3
16:51 Seroster I... I love your honda.
16:51 tesla4d_ Same color, same model. One year newer, one trim level higher, but still a manual transmission.
16:51 tonsofpcs how long is the clutch throw?
16:51 Seroster Can I rub it?
16:52 tesla4d_ tonsofpcs: I don't really know, honestly.
16:52 * tesla4d_ looks up the term "clutch throw"
16:52 Seroster I assume it is how far you have to push it before it does its thing
16:53 tesla4d_ Very short.
16:53 Seroster btw, tesla4d, you should totally join #TGG:NSFW . I know you want to.
16:54 tesla4d_ I still drop it to the floor when changing gears out of habit, but to slip it a little only takes "a thought and a twitch."
16:54 Seroster Lol
16:54 tesla4d_ It's kind of weird, honestly. I suspect it means I'll have to replace the clutch relatively soon.
16:55 * tesla4d_ doesn't really know *that much* about how cars work. Embarrassing for an engineering student.
16:57 * tesla4d_ pokes tonsofpcs
16:59 tesla4d_ If I enjoyed poking around under the hood, I don't think I would have a honda.
16:59 tesla4d_ They're horrifying.
17:00 tesla4d_ I think this is the heart of the domestic versus foreign feud.
17:01 tesla4d_ If you want a car to work on, domestic. If you want a car to drive, foreign. But then, as I admitted, I don't have much experience yet.
17:07 injektion <tesla4d_> If you want a car to work on, domestic. <--- I wouldn't say that
17:07 injektion Especially with Ford and their Ecoboost engines
17:08 tesla4d_ That's probably fair. Now that I think about it, I know some people who enjoy fooling with foreign cars, too.
17:08 injektion Also the ford fiesta lacks a temperature gauge
17:09 tesla4d_ One of them built a new ECM for his van, even... But wait, his van was an econoline something-or-other. He doesn't fiddle with his BMW's. Damn.

17:10 mashpriborintorg hi
17:11 mashpriborintorg speaking about ECU ? I love taking them apart
17:14 tesla4d_ Whoops.
17:15 Seroster And an ECU is?
17:15 tesla4d_ I just realized I keep using terms like "foreign" and "domestic" in a chatroom full of international users.
17:15 tesla4d_ I'm an idiot.

17:15 Seroster You sure are tesla4d =)
17:15 mashpriborintorg the electronics  box fitted in your motor compartment
17:16 Seroster Btw, by foregin we ALL mean japanese, german or italian cars. I am not aware of any chat members from either of those
17:17 mashpriborintorg as a good frenchie, I have a Peugeot car :)
17:17 Seroster My mother drives an R.R
17:17 Seroster Rusty Renault thatis.
17:18 mashpriborintorg lol this model is for export only, not seen here
17:20 mashpriborintorg they do not rust too much, but Renault had huge reliability issues around 2000-2006, it's getting better now
17:20 Sgt_Lemming mmm, so nice when someone is arguing something about a product, and the product makers own blog contradicts them
17:21 Sgt_Lemming game set and freaking match
17:21 tesla4d_ Does this relate to the car discussion, or is it something else?
17:23 Sgt_Lemming something else
17:23 Sgt_Lemming completely stupid argument I was having with someone in #sparkfun
17:27 NeWtoz anyone else here going to that party thing?
17:28 mashpriborintorg following it on the stream for me, but my soul will be there
17:28 Sgt_Lemming wishing I was
17:28 tesla4d_ What party thing?
17:29 NeWtoz apparently TGG is having an end of the year party
17:29 mashpriborintorg what , there's a party thing ? where ? :p
17:29 NeWtoz I didn't know about it until last night
17:29 mashpriborintorg you did not learn your Captain's blog well enough tesla4d
17:30 mashpriborintorg it's like homework, you need to watch them until you know them on the fingertips
17:31 tesla4d_ I'll do that when I get paid to.
17:32 tesla4d_ For now, it's free entertainment. Not homework.
17:38 mashpriborintorg I'm so angry against the postal service, they "lost" my parcel
17:41 Seroster Im bored
17:42 Seroster It's time to P-A-R-T "Y" - BECAUSE I GOTTA!

17:44 tesla4d_ Looks like not-quite-arabic, rendered from right to left.
17:44 Seroster Erm
17:44 Seroster You said a lot of rubbish
17:44 tesla4d_ I guess that means I have the correct character encoding set up?
17:44 reesk i just said im going to teach you to speak arabic which proves a point i was making elsewhere that you cant expect to teach someone something without teaching them the basics
17:45 Seroster I do also have the correct encoding, but it still looks like rubbish to me
17:45 Seroster How many letters are there in the arabic alphabet?
17:45 tesla4d_ For the record, I've always wanted to learn a little Arabic.
17:45 sndwrx My font is too small for it to be legible.
17:45 reesk basically i just got sent to a link to a site that teachies php by giving you lengthy code examples and expecting you to know what there talking about

17:52 Seroster Come here and say that to my phillips 2 screwdriver bitch.
17:52 sndwrx Anyway, how many lines did that zalgo text smear across your screen?
17:52 reesk not the fact there blind
17:52 reesk just there ability to read adult litreture in public places without any odd looks
17:52 sndwrx You like porn that much, reesk ?
17:52 Seroster Learn braile then
17:58 tesla4d_ OH GOD.

18:30 NeWtoz I'd rather have the USS Defiant
18:30 mashpriborintorg but you need to give precise coordinates if you don't want to end up embedded in a wall :p
18:30 Andyroo Nah, Runabout. More cosy. :)
18:30 Toastdude And I'm only 13..
18:30 NeWtoz I'd settle for a runabout
18:31 Andyroo Ah, I see, you are at a disadvantage there :O
18:32 NeWtoz according to google, I'm 1.6 miles away
18:33 Andyroo As the runabout flies, or walking distance? :)
18:34 NeWtoz that would be walking
18:34 NeWtoz I wonder if google can do the other
18:34 Andyroo Heading up there today? Wave into the live stream for us :D

19:03 Toastdude Hi kuzzle

19:03 Andyroo @Seroster, can we call you the hertz whisperer? :D
19:03 Obtuse my dad saw TGG videos and he was like "I've got stuff to get rid of"
19:03 producerbill2 nice see you there
19:03 Obtuse mostly old video stuff
19:03 Seroster ... No... Only if you give me an NST

19:04 Obtuse there's a NADY wireless mic in there

19:06 Sgt_Lemming nope
19:06 Superphosphate Hi Seroster!
19:06 Sgt_Lemming porn
19:06 Seroster mashpriborintorg, nsts are most often full of tar
19:07 Seroster If its not tar its epoxy
19:07 Superphosphate Haha Seroster, can you prove it though :-p
19:07 producerbill2 clock go faster,,, then slower
19:07 NeWtoz if it's tar, you just need to tar -xvvf it
19:07 mashpriborintorg I hate epoxy coatings
19:07 Seroster Lol
19:07 Seroster I love epoxy, until the second you got to get rid of it
19:07 Seroster After that it kinda sucks
19:08 mashpriborintorg yeah, it is usefull for keeping things secret
19:08 tggmc loud tone warning
19:08 NeWtoz SUCCESS

19:11 producerbill2 lol tone maybe some warning
19:11 NeWtoz producerbill2, has some lag
19:12 NeWtoz I loved how it was load, and as soon as I lowered my volume, it got louder
19:12 producerbill2 no just busy
19:12 producerbill2 lo
19:12 producerbill2 lol
19:12 NeWtoz loud*
19:13 Andyroo I always worry about the latency, the security cam feed clock is always 5 hours 15 minutes off my local time... so the 5 hours is GMT offset.. but the fifteen minutes, I wonder :O

19:28 ajcc Photonicinduction is the reason I know about The Geek Group :), don't blame the man
19:28 Sgt_Lemming <--- updated board
19:29 Sgt_Lemming not sure if I will ever need it, considering I have 4 more unpopulated PCB's here, but eh, I was bored

19:33 Seroster In theory its safe
19:33 Seroster And... Well that aint respect xD

19:34 Andyroo What was that, camera without a lens attached?
19:34 ajcc hmm, testbars :/, they are cute but those computers looked neat
19:36 DruidicRifleman Hey
19:36 mashpriborintorg seems pretty dangerous Seroster, I'd rather use some corona converter for old photocopier to produce such voltages... "It's not the volts that kills you, that's the amps"
19:36 ajcc yay, Bolt Depot :)
19:36 superman yeah..that sign.. batman and i hung it
19:36 tggmc no, it's a steve checking signals
19:36 Sgt_Lemming heh,
19:37 Andyroo Well, I'm off to play Skyrim for a bit if things are on the go slow. Back later, have fun :)
19:37 Sgt_Lemming Joke: What's the difference between a Mechanical Engineer and a Civil Engineer?
19:37 Seroster mashpriborintorg, Yeah. It is pretty damn dangerous, 2000watts at 12000 volts would be 166ma, more than five times more than lethal.
19:38 Sgt_Lemming Mechanical Engineers build weapons, Civil Engineers build targets
19:38 tgg|ajprog joined #thegeekgroup
19:38 Seroster I am aware of the danger. I just wonder if my schematic is theoretically sound
19:38 Sgt_Lemming it is
19:40 Seroster Worst case scenario I trip a few breakers and kill a bunch of mots. Wich.. Doesnt really matter since I got 25+ of the suckers =P
19:40 DruidicRifleman Whats up
19:40 ajcc Micro Oven Transformers are dangerous evil little things!
19:40 tgg|ajprog yNos: you in?
19:40 Seroster sure are, ajcc.
19:41 mashpriborintorg what's the goal of this setup Seroster, cooking an ostrich with arcs ?
19:41 Seroster I was thinking about rhinos
19:41 Seroster I'll have to quote adam savage, "The end of the exercise wasn't really the point of the exercise to begin with now was it?"
19:41 Toastdude joined #thegeekgroup
19:42 mashpriborintorg or make a thumper like thing, but for blewing old locomotives :D
19:42 Seroster I have 40 microwave oven capacitors to go with those transformers.
19:42 ajcc wouldn't the second and third transformers just arc themself to death?
19:42 mashpriborintorg oh god.
19:43 Seroster They are pretty well insulated
19:43 Seroster 6kv winding-core kills them
19:43 Seroster If the core is 6kv and the feed is 230v you are under 6kv and the isolation will be fine
19:44 Sgt_Lemming ajcc, I've done a 4 stack like what seroster is planning before
19:44 Sgt_Lemming if you search my nick on youtube you will find vids of it

19:44 Seroster Not to mention an 8stack, that failed catastrophically
19:45 iSasha Oh whatever. Is anyone over at TGG HQ?
19:45 Seroster yes
19:45 Seroster tggmc
19:45 iSasha Ok then, do you guys need a 8EAIsa01.0d2 card
19:46 Seroster If its free the answer to "do you need" is always yes.
19:46 iSasha and 3 55g3435 cards? They may or may not work. The thing is that shipping is quite expensive (30$ = lots of $$$), so I'll only send them if you guys actually need them.
19:48 ajcc Sgt_Lemming: nice arcs!
19:48 Sgt_Lemming heh
19:48 Sgt_Lemming thanks
19:49 Superphosphate joined #thegeekgroup
19:49 ajcc Sgt_Lemming: are they connected secondary to primary in series? or just the secondary coils in series and the primarys in parallell?
19:50 Sgt_Lemming basically the same as what Seroster draw, just with two less transformers
19:51 iSasha Ah, whatever. Ask whoever is in charge of networking if they need these cards. They're server grade if I recall correctly.

19:52 Toastdude Thanks BotSteve
19:52 BotSteve No problem, Toastdude
19:52 Sgt_Lemming 16 bit 10mbit isa cards with AUI ports
19:52 iSasha Well, you don't need them then?
19:52 mashpriborintorg ouch... museum pieces
19:52 Sgt_Lemming they would be for the museum, that's about it
19:53 Toastdude I need RAM..
19:53 ajcc Sgt_Lemming: hmm, I think I get the drawing now, at first I thought they were connected 230V->4KV -> 230V on the next and so forth
19:54 iSasha Are they really that old?
19:54 Sgt_Lemming yup
19:54 mashpriborintorg search for datecodes on the chips
19:54 iSasha Would 9303 be a datecode?
19:54 mashpriborintorg yeah :p

20:18 injektion I use a Mac and I know how to use a computer. I just use them so I don't have to deal with any issues like with X11/Xorg and crappy video drivers
20:19 theyooper15 joined #thegeekgroup
20:19 ajcc injektion: Xorg is your friend
20:19 NeWtoz lol, whole bunch of freenodes
20:19 injektion ajcc, The nvidia drivers freeze everything they touch for mew
20:19 ajcc injektion: Apple's Out-of-date by some 10 years and still shipping X11 is not
20:19 injektion me*
20:19 SparkyProjects I just pointed them here from the stream chat
20:20 mashpriborintorg How many geeks does it need to connect a laptop to wifi :p
20:20 injektion ajcc, Apple doesn't even use X11 for the display on OS X
20:20 mashpriborintorg Hi SparkyProjects
20:20 ajcc injektion: nVidia drivers works like awesome
20:20 injektion It uses Quartz which is so much better
20:20 Toastdude Is there a way to delay live stream video by 4 seconds? :P
20:20 SparkyProjects Hi mashpriborintorg :)
20:20 ajcc injektion: no, but you can get X11 for OSX for "compability"
20:20 Toastdude And keep the audio at the same pace?
20:20 NeWtoz we could, but tggmc is on strike
20:20 NeWtoz he ran out of skittles
20:21 Toastdude D:
20:21 injektion ajcc, Every time I run an OpenGL screen saver under Linux with my laptop the system freezes and there is no way of recovering it without killing power
20:21 mashpriborintorg lol @ Chris
20:21 qwertyboy then dont do that. ;)
20:21 Gaxnys injektion: ctrl+alt+f1 ;)
20:22 tggmc cprossu you around?
20:22 injektion Doesn't matter Linux is a modern OS and should perfectly work from a fresh install
20:22 Gaxnys and then kill -9 whatever is troubling you.
20:22 theyooper15 congrats on making an awesome building!
20:22 NeWtoz You're doing it wrong
20:22 SitkaGrown joined #thegeekgroup
20:22 Seroster SparkyProjects!
20:22 ajcc injektion: which flavor of Linux are you talking about?, and did you use the real nVidia kernel + Xorg drivers? and did you install any obsolete OpenGL stuff?
20:22 Gaxnys injektion: Linux yes, proprietairy drivers no.
20:22 Seroster  What do you think doctor, will I still be able to play the piano?
20:22 SparkyProjects So what did you do to your Mot's Seroster ?
20:22 injektion ajcc, I used the drivers from nvidia's website
20:23 ajcc injektion: hmm, you should really use the nVidia kernel and Xorg modules shipped WITH your flavor of Linux
20:23 injektion I tried both and they ended up with the same result
20:23 ajcc injektion: doing things by hand makes for head-aches
20:23 ajcc hmm

21:26 Cprossu jr,,,
21:26 Fulsy I see a big logo on the screen
21:26 roadran422 I hope my dad doesn't walk in...
21:26 Cprossu w0vha there's a  radio on in mdh
21:26 K1OCD-Adam saw it in passing
21:26 Cprossu right now
21:27 roadran422 He doesn't get me lol
21:27 Cprossu *at least that's what I was told*
21:27 w0vha Oh, OK.
21:27 Cprossu it could be rf, we've had it before
21:27 roadran422 Chris! I am not korean!
21:27 Cprossu but right now we're all hoping it's just a crappy radio on in mdh
21:27 Andyroo Speaking of, found my old tornado. covered in cat hair. Still with a charge in it, but I can't find my USB charger. Ah well, I kinda wanted a tank system anyways.
21:27 w0vha It sounds like a commercial radio station, but I can't understand it...
21:27 Andyroo Time for a new one :)
21:27 Cprossu it is
21:27 Cprossu AM
21:27 K1OCD-Adam RF from cellular devices for sure
21:27 Coderjoe shouldn't be getting rf in any balanced mic feeds
21:28 Cprossu Coderjoe it's our mixer that's the issue
21:28 Humza_ I need to go, damnit. Emergency server maintinence at Redstation Rackcenter1 :(
21:28 Coderjoe oh
21:28 K1OCD-Adam what proper ground lol
21:28 Cprossu ground loop probably
21:28 K1OCD-Adam the only proper ground is in the hvl
21:28 Cprossu but wait for egrsteve|away to confirm.
21:28 w0vha AM RFI is a bitch... I know THAT for sure!

21:29 roadran422 .g proper ground
21:29 qwertyboy metal rods stuck in the ground
21:29 K1OCD-Adam rf ground vs safety ground
21:29 Cprossu roadran422 botsteve has been... disabled... due to spam reasons for now
21:29 Monkeh qwertyboy: What sort of ground? How deep? How far apart?
21:29 roadran422 I forgot lol
21:29 ajcc tggmc: tell chris that the head-part is the part that breaks on tripods, or missing the fast-mount
21:29 Ponko hey toasty
21:29 Coderjoe qwertyboy: every electrical service has that at point-of-entry (just that general description)
21:29 qwertyboy Monkeh: no idea
21:30 roadran422 Projector is off
21:30 Monkeh roadran422: Computer is off.
21:30 qwertyboy they cant silence us forever!
21:30 roadran422 Ok. Duh. TGG_MDH just quit... lol
21:30 K1OCD-Adam and a safety ground is not necessarily a good rf ground
21:30 Monkeh Coderjoe: That very much depends where you are. :P
21:31 Coderjoe Monkeh: in pretty much the entire US, afaik
21:31 Monkeh K1OCD-Adam: Indeed, and vice versa. It's not as simple as whacking a bit of copper-plated rod into the ground for either use.
21:31 K1OCD-Adam <-NMEA MEI
21:32 * Toastdude thinks the IRC is getting too crowded...
21:32 theyooper15 they have a whole vid on how they did rhe grounging

21:32 Monkeh Coderjoe: You'll be hard pressed to find a ground rod in my property. ;)
21:33 Monkeh And yet I have an exceptional ground connection
21:33 w0vha Cricket? Nobody understands cricket! You gotta know what a crumpet is to understand cricket!
21:33 roadran422 o_O
21:33 Andyroo Crumpet's just not cricket :O

21:35 Ponko ^^
21:35 roadran422 Toastdude: I never said he wasn't... He's not doing anything right now... xD
21:35 Rahlon I thought the usa doesn't play cricket?
21:35 Ponko epic win
21:35 tlockley The US doesent really recognize cricket as a sport
21:36 tlockley though quite a few play in the US
21:36 roadran422 Is crumpet a sport?
21:36 Ponko no
21:36 tlockley my college has a sizeable cricket team for being a state school
21:36 K1OCD-Adam pastry
21:36 K1OCD-Adam of sorts
21:36 roadran422 Then what's the relationship between Crumpet and Cricket?
21:36 tlockley britan
21:36 Ponko there isn't one
21:36 roadran422 ...
21:37 w0vha That was a quote from the first Ninja Turtles movie...
21:37 Ponko crumpet is a food and sometimes it's eating at tea
21:37 Rahlon aah ok, I'm assuming it depends on the state as well?
21:37 roadran422 Ohhh
21:37 Coderjoe when you say "football", do you mean global football (soccer in the states), american football, or canadian football?
21:37 Ponko lol i remembered that :P
21:37 Andyroo Eat crumpet, watch cricket, drink tea, feel upper class.
21:37 tlockley note really Rahlon. UMass Dartmouth just has a huge indian population
21:37 roadran422 What is the hunk of wod?
21:37 tlockley and their favorite pastime apparantly is playing cricket
21:38 Rahlon yeah that would make sense
21:38 tlockley so we have a cricket pitch in the middle of the campus
21:38 w0vha That's some bad hat, Dan.
21:38 Rahlon it's one of the things they have left over from when they were part of the empire
21:38 roadran422 PAUL!

21:40 Coderjoe so what the heck is everyone watching and filming?
21:40 Cprossu Anyone who thinks their video may be behind, you can click "Pause" and "Play" without the need to see another ad, and the stream will reset locally for you.
21:40 roadran422 lol
21:40 Rahlon the north tends to play more gritter sports such as football and rugby
21:40 K1OCD-Adam they are generating RF what are they messing with
21:40 Tarsman013 whats going on there???
21:40 w0vha SSTC?
21:40 Cprossu K1OCD-Adam: I think we have a XLR cable somewhere patched in that we should have put into the 'bad pile'
21:40 K1OCD-Adam got it
21:41 Cprossu or had several times before
21:41 theyooper15 switch cameras
21:41 Coderjoe next time it is determined to be bad, cut the ends off
21:41 Cprossu theyooper15 we're just testing things out right now.
21:41 Coderjoe so it can't be used again accidentally
21:41 roadran422 There should be a new camera. Specifically for chris. It's called Crotch Cam!
21:41 K1OCD-Adam I usually cut them.. harder to make the mistake when it isn't a whole cable
21:42 Cprossu we usually cut 'em
21:42 qwertyboy maglinvin!
21:42 Cprossu but sometimes it gets hecktic
21:42 roadran422 Dan!
21:42 qwertyboy we want to see whats going on!
21:42 roadran422 Dan... Laugh on line!
21:43 Rahlon so what's the plan for today then? I've gathered chris is planning to do some kinda speech what else is planned?

22:17 roadran422 Lol
22:17 roadran422 I have a member card...
22:17 roadran422 I am not really on the forum though..
22:17 roadran422 It was just a basic card
22:17 tggmc then you a a member if you have a card
22:17 roadran422 Ok... Then... Lol

22:19 isasha Ok, could you guys please explain to me why the stream works flawlessly on my phone??
22:19 tonsofpcs isasha: your phone is better than your pc?
22:19 ajcc tggmc: is back-focusing the same on video as 35mm mitchell cameras?, kubrick bought some back-focus mitchell ones, I've always wondered what made them so special
22:19 isasha Hm.. iPhone 4 vs Macbook Air?
22:19 tggmc It's the same theory
22:20 tonsofpcs ajcc: same theory, entirely different in practice.  Video lenses have a LOT more element groups, yet alone elements.
22:20 roadran422 Hahaha

22:25 tonsofpcs tggmc: I think it's changing with every nonsynchronous switch, since the ADC is reclocking
22:25 Gjposner ok
22:26 tggmc hmm, I suppose it could be
22:26 tonsofpcs tggmc: do you have a spare TBC you can put in-line between the switcher and the capture card?
