01:41 tonsofpcs hi hi
01:41 yNos hey there
01:41 newguy hello
01:41 tonsofpcs Monkeh: messages!
01:41 tonsofpcs Monkeh: remember how I said killall pulseaudio ?
01:41 tonsofpcs yea :)
01:42 tgg|wannabe zomg its a tonsofpcs!
01:42 tonsofpcs I forget to mention the macchine it killed by filling the hdd
01:42 tonsofpcs what? where?!
01:42 tgg|wannabe in new york
01:42 tonsofpcs oh, phew.
01:42 tgg|wannabe were you near the fire?
01:42 tonsofpcs fire?
01:43 tgg|wannabe the hotel that was in dirty dancing was on fire in the mountains
01:43 tonsofpcs I got home an hour and a half ago, ordered papa johns 30 minutes ago, and I feel like I'm gonna pass out...
01:43 tonsofpcs tgg|wannabe: oh, the thing in loch sheldrake?
01:43 tgg|wannabe i haven't a clue
01:43 tgg|wannabe saw it on cnn
01:43 tonsofpcs there's a name for it... it was on fire on saturday iirc
01:43 DamianZ Hmmm
01:44 tonsofpcs I drove past it about 8 days ago (ok, 8 days and 2 hours)
01:45 tonsofpcs it's about an hour east of here
01:45 tonsofpcs well, hour and a half
01:45 Monkeh tonsofpcs: :)
01:45 Monkeh tonsofpcs: That's over 20GiB of crap.
01:45 Monkeh tonsofpcs: In.. a couple of minutes.
01:46 tonsofpcs Monkeh: again, (1) killall pulseaudio  (2) figure out how to disable it permanently
01:46 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Disabling it is easy. But I CAN'T not have it.
01:46 Monkeh Nothing else can replace it on this box at present.
01:46 * tonsofpcs hands Monkeh a resistive mixing network
01:46 Monkeh Please, give me suitable hardware, I HAVE NO MONEY!
01:47 Monkeh But still
01:47 Monkeh That won't fix ALSA's crappy mixing
01:47 GamerX joined #thegeekgroup
01:47 tonsofpcs grand view, it's called the grand view
01:47 tonsofpcs wannabe ^
01:47 tgg|wannabe ahhh ok
01:48 NeWtoz ALSA is the future!
01:48 tonsofpcs comment on a friend's wall post about the fire said that they apparently had a number of un-fixed safety issues/violations
01:48 tgg|wannabe probably....
01:48 tgg|wannabe what NeWtoz?
01:48 NeWtoz that was a comment to Monkeh
01:48 tonsofpcs Monkeh: order about 100 1kohm resistors, get a soldering iron, and a ton of connectors ;)
01:49 Monkeh tonsofpcs: ... still won't fix the fact that I need pulse.
01:50 tonsofpcs for what?
01:50 Monkeh ... software mixing
01:50 tonsofpcs of what/
01:50 astro73|roam oh god
01:51 Monkeh .... Oh, I don't know, multiple apps daring to output audio at once
01:51 tonsofpcs ALSA
01:51 Monkeh Sucks at it.
01:51 astro73|roam i've switched to the opinion that linux sucks at sound
01:51 Monkeh astro73|roam: I agree.
01:51 astro73|roam i know you do
01:51 Monkeh astro73|roam: The reason it sucks is because everyone shunned OSS4.
01:52 astro73|roam i just tried to run a minecraft server and client and expected smooth sound (java is another discussion)
01:52 astro73|roam the fact is, Pulse shouldn't be taking 40% of a core to mix sound
01:52 Monkeh Yes, but it at least does it, unlike dmix.
01:52 astro73|roam when it feels like it
01:52 astro73|roam i often don't get smooth sound
01:53 tgg|wannabe hi astro!
01:54 astro73|roam hi wannabe
01:54 tgg|wannabe "are there times in a man's life when it is necessary to make music with one's armpit?"
01:55 astro73|roam only when he's 13
01:55 tgg|wannabe kid in question is under 10, i believe
01:57 tonsofpcs Monkeh: jackd.
01:57 DamianZ Possibly then.
01:58 masterofmonks tgg|wannabe, The answer is "Yes."
01:58 tgg|wannabe but when?!
01:58 masterofmonks When he is feeling particularly silly.
01:58 tgg|wannabe this mother is a great lady, but she'll ask when
01:58 DamianZ When using your mouth and back of hand just doesn't do it.
01:59 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Nein.
01:59 tonsofpcs why does the local [major pizza chain, name redacted] fail so much?
02:00 tgg|wannabe because grease
02:00 tonsofpcs they can get the pizza perferct but when I ask for red pepper and parmesan, why do I get 'seasoning'?  or when I ask for buffalo strips with extra bufffalo sauce and cheese sauce, I get plain strips with buffalo sauce or buffalo strips with ranch....
02:03 Sgt_Lemming http://imgur.com/YgxTZ <--- can you tell where I enabled the shaping on our modem?
02:03 BotSteve Title: imgur: the simple image sharer
02:03 Sgt_Lemming turns out it does have it :-D
02:04 tonsofpcs Sgt_Lemming: in the configuration interface, I hope :)
02:04 tonsofpcs (why would you shape on your own modem?  transfer limited?
02:05 Sgt_Lemming we have 1mbit of upload bandwidth
02:05 Sgt_Lemming one of my housemates has been setting her torrents to use ALL of that for upload
02:05 * tonsofpcs introduces Sgt_Lemming to mikrotik and data layer defined rate limited
02:06 tonsofpcs *limiting
02:06 Sgt_Lemming eh, this works fine
02:06 tonsofpcs well, rather than shaping, you could be controlling priority
02:07 tonsofpcs like, at work I have some devices that can and will use 5 Mbit and if they are doing such, any loss of rate makess them useless.  I prioritize them first and guarantee them 5.5M but otherwise that bandwidth is available for everything else
02:07 tonsofpcs (well, it's quite a bit more complex than that due to different issues, but that's the gist)
02:07 Sgt_Lemming tonsofpcs, this modem can do all of that
02:08 tonsofpcs cool
02:08 tonsofpcs what modem?
02:08 Sgt_Lemming it has a full QOS implementation, it's just a bit buried in the interface
02:08 Sgt_Lemming Billion 7800G iirc
02:08 Sgt_Lemming 7300
02:08 Sgt_Lemming Billion BiPAC 7300GRA <--- model number
02:10 tonsofpcs interesting
02:11 Sgt_Lemming they are a pretty common brand of modem over here
02:11 Sgt_Lemming reasonably cheap and really decent
02:11 tonsofpcs yea, I've heard of them.
02:11 tonsofpcs Cable here generally uses Motorola Surfboards, DSL uses whoever they want but rebrands them and locks them down
02:12 Sgt_Lemming yeah, here thankfully you are generally allowed to use your own modem on DSL
02:12 Sgt_Lemming cable is netgear or motorola generally
02:12 Sgt_Lemming and the netgear ones are SHIT
02:12 tonsofpcs idk about DSL here
02:13 tonsofpcs my cable company is horrid but they are still the best deal....
02:13 eadthem DSL in kansas city or least myn is AT&T   rather decent
02:13 eadthem lot better than comcast
02:14 HighMan Comcast. Golden Poop Award.
02:14 eadthem motorola 2210 modem
02:14 eadthem semi locked down  but not to bad
02:14 tonsofpcs they won't even gurantee that I can reach their minimum offered level of service on DSl here
02:15 eadthem i was able to easly make my router do PPoE
02:15 eadthem and make there modem as dum as a post

04:07 Cprossu ok, good he was here at least
04:07 Cprossu what's up folks?
04:07 Monkeh|Lap A wild Cprossu appears
04:07 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Little. You?
04:08 Monkeh|Lap Oh, unless you want my toilet woes.
04:08 * Cprossu pulls out a nerf dart which was lodged in his ear
04:08 Cprossu not too much
04:08 Cprossu lots of work still to do at the lab though
04:08 MoxieMike not much Cprossu...just got home from my friend's place
04:08 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: There always is. The day that changes, something horrible has gone wrong.
04:09 Cprossu Monkeh|Lap: nope, when that day comes it will be because I did my job ;)
04:09 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Hah!
04:09 Monkeh|Lap You're too lazy for that
04:10 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Seen the latest version of Silverstone's best case to date?
04:10 Cprossu I really dislike silverstone for anything but their desktop cases
04:11 Monkeh|Lap Looked at the Fortress series?
04:11 Cprossu do they still mount their mothrboards upside-down?
04:11 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: This is mounted rear end up.
04:11 Cprossu ahhh the fortress is at least normal
04:11 Monkeh|Lap No, it isn't. ;)
04:12 * DamianZ yawns
04:12 Cprossu the one I am looking at is
04:12 Monkeh|Lap http://www.silentpcreview.com/files/images/silverstone-ft02usb3/19.jpg
04:12 Cprossu oh god the sideways one
04:12 MoxieMike for a new computer build is it apropriate to use an existing ATX full tower case, or should a new case be purchased for a new/modern MB?
04:12 Monkeh|Lap Well there are a few but the FT-02 is the important one
04:12 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: I think it's a great idea. And it's a beautiful case, too.
04:13 Cprossu it's a better idea than one of their last thermal attempts
04:13 Monkeh|Lap Although I really wish they'd come up with a better system for securing the PSU
04:13 Monkeh|Lap The cage arrangement Antec used for the P182 would be good
04:13 Cprossu I still have nightmares about the silverstone tj06
04:14 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: I have a TJ06.
04:14 * DamianZ doesn't want to think about Cprossu's dreams
04:14 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Great looking case. Really not so nice to work in.
04:14 Cprossu it really really sucks to work in
04:14 Monkeh|Lap And the feel are hopeless, fragile creations.
04:14 Cprossu hiding cables in it was an extreme bitch
04:14 Monkeh|Lap HDD cooling is nonexistant
04:14 lwq_laptop hi cprossu
04:14 lwq_laptop hi monkeh
04:14 Cprossu yeah they cook good
04:14 Monkeh|Lap The duct thing is silly
04:15 Monkeh|Lap Still a great looking case.
04:15 Cprossu the duct thing, god the duct thing
04:15 Monkeh|Lap But I'm not planning on putting any hardware back in mine.
04:15 Monkeh|Lap I have an old tower I'll use instead if I can't buy a new one for my next creation..
04:15 Cprossu if we want to talk about good looking cases, ever see the cooler master 430?
04:15 Cprossu damn good for a minitower
04:16 Monkeh|Lap Not my style but not a bad attempt
04:16 Cprossu for the price, functionality, and cooling it did very well

04:17 yNos Cprossu, you down for bike night tomorrow?
04:17 Cprossu yes
04:17 Monkeh|Lap Although the front grill is a dust trap without being a worthwhile filter
04:18 Cprossu *rather yes @ yNos
04:18 yNos cool.. one caveat.. no noise in the house after 8pm..
04:18 Cprossu consider it done
04:18 yNos which isnt an issue, we wont be back till 11pmish anyway

04:19 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Take the window off and I approve
04:19 Cprossu the one built for water cooling Monkeh|Lap?
04:19 Monkeh|Lap I don't like windows.
04:19 Cprossu eg radiators on the bottom?
04:19 Cprossu iirc
04:19 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Yep, that was one common setup
04:19 Cprossu oddly enough I made my buddy run a maxtop case instead
04:19 Monkeh|Lap The one where the top, front, and bottom were one single piece of aluminium.
04:19 Cprossu because I wanted to get him into case modding
04:20 Monkeh|Lap That case was a great idea but it wasn't well enough made

04:21 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: I kinda like Silverstone. They tend to get a bit experimental but some of their stuff is really good.
04:21 Cprossu hell of a neat case
04:21 Cprossu there was room for 2 '76 chevy caprice heater cores in it
04:21 Monkeh|Lap Nope, never heard of it
04:22 Monkeh|Lap http://aiyamicro.com/legacy-products/pics/cases_server_enclosure_csf910.jpg
04:22 Monkeh|Lap That?
04:23 Cprossu only in black
04:23 Cprossu it was a damn good case
04:23 Monkeh|Lap And I thought Chieftec made big cases
04:23 Monkeh|Lap Chieftec are, amazingly, still around, just.. almost impossible to find
04:23 Cprossu speaking of which I have a damn cool case for my computer at the lab
04:23 Cprossu which I built from scraps ;)
04:23 Cprossu I just need to move it on over

04:24 Cprossu I picked this up for $5!!!!!
04:24 Monkeh|Lap Damn.
04:24 MoxieMike nice
04:24 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Get a nice bezel made out of alu to replace that plasticrap
04:25 Cprossu I'm debating it
04:25 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: And build a phase-change cooling rig into it. ;)
04:25 Cprossu Monkeh|Lap, nah
04:25 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Peltier of doom?
04:25 Cprossu but I may buy some 8020
04:25 Cprossu and make a case cover outa that

04:26 Cprossu did I ever show you the drawing I made of a peltier water chiller?
04:26 Katemonster joined #thegeekgroup
04:26 Monkeh|Lap No
04:27 Cprossu 12 water blocks, 6 225watt peltiers, a car radiator, 2 eheim pumps, 2 pieces of PVC pipe, CO2 rated hose, and brass barbs
04:27 Cprossu dumb as hell idea.
04:27 DamianZ PVC!?
04:27 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Also, I might have found a use for that big 12V supply I got.
04:27 Cprossu DamianZ: I was 14.
04:27 DamianZ Ah... that explains a lot
04:27 wannabe1987 hi cpro
04:28 DamianZ Hmm should find some clothes for work
04:28 Cprossu hey wannabe1987 glad you made it safely home. I can't wait to get back to the lab though, so much cool shit (lol)
04:28 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Ponder with me. Will a 12V compressor (portable tyre filling type) blow enough air to stop me pissing money into gas dusters?
04:28 Cprossu No.
04:28 Cprossu tried it
04:28 Monkeh|Lap Darn.
04:28 Cprossu though
04:28 Monkeh|Lap Because they're _cheap_
04:29 wannabe1987 cpro, just don't kill yourself, k?
04:29 Cprossu got $60?
04:29 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Not really, no.
04:29 Cprossu do what I did then
04:29 Cprossu 3 pack of air dusters is $12 right?
04:29 DamianZ Got a spare engine to convert?
04:29 Cprossu or what is is where you live?
04:29 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Right now, I'm debating spending money on: Multimeter, said compressor, or a cheap GPU so I can see if my AMD64 still lives.
04:29 exor674 don't those 12v compressors also generally low a lot other undesirables
04:29 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: It's uh.. extortion, I can tell you that.
04:30 Monkeh|Lap exor674: Only what's in the air and filters are cheap.
04:30 exor674 blow, not low
04:30 Cprossu anyway here's what I did Monkeh|Lap
04:30 Cprossu honest to crap
04:30 Cprossu I blew out my systems and kept track of the 'canned air I would have used'
04:30 Cprossu then used the 'money I saved' to fund the compressor
04:31 Cprossu and the compressor doubled it's money's worth in the first week of use
04:31 MoxieMike_ joined #thegeekgroup
04:31 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: Cheapest I can get 'em is about $6.50 a can.
04:31 Cprossu Monkeh|Lap: what country is this?!
04:31 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: The UK. Welcome to our prices.
04:31 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: First you add a random figure from nothing to three times the original price, then you add 20%.
04:31 Cprossu crap.
04:32 Monkeh|Lap Then you have the UK price.
04:32 Cprossu do you guys have a sears?
04:32 Cprossu or a general auto parts store?
04:32 Cprossu or a harbor freight?
04:32 Monkeh|Lap We have all sorts of stores but believe me, nobody keeps it cheaper than this
04:33 DamianZ You can get them in bulk slightly cheper but you have to buy like 100.
04:33 Monkeh|Lap Prices go down if you buy more of them, but..
04:33 * DamianZ -> w0rk
04:33 Monkeh|Lap It's still expensive
04:33 Cprossu later DamianZ
04:33 Monkeh|Lap Plus shady, it's really easy for the post to get pissed off with you when they realise what's in the bag
04:33 Monkeh|Lap You're not allowed to post pressurised containers.

04:34 Cprossu Monkeh|Lap: damn premier supply autoparts website is freakin' slow
04:34 Monkeh|Lap Cprossu: So yeah, pondering cheap compressor + cheap filter + possibly some small tank.
04:34 Cprossu before you jump into that
04:34 Cprossu what auto parts stores DO you have?
04:34 Monkeh|Lap I'm not jumping into anything
04:34 Monkeh|Lap Uh, that I can get to?
04:34 Cprossu yes
04:35 Monkeh|Lap One small place, may or may not keep gas dusters.
04:35 Monkeh|Lap If they do, they'll be at least 50% more expensive than ebay.
04:35 Cprossu are they savy enough to have a website?
04:35 Monkeh|Lap Not that I'm aware of.
04:35 Cprossu and I don't care if they have gas dusters!
04:35 Cprossu like any big supply places?
04:36 Cprossu (eg autozone, oreily, checker, advanced auto parts)
04:36 Monkeh|Lap None within my reach.
04:36 Monkeh|Lap Halfords is in Plymouth..
04:36 Monkeh|Lap Why?
04:36 Cprossu halfords, do they sell parts?
04:36 Monkeh|Lap Depends what parts.
04:36 Cprossu it looks like they just do service
04:37 Monkeh|Lap They generally don't sell you anything they haven't told you is suitable for your vehicle, so..
04:37 Monkeh|Lap Their website is very useless
04:37 Cprossu ahhh found it
04:37 Monkeh|Lap I do actually have a compressor but I really, really don't want it in my work area.
04:38 Cprossu loud as fuck?
04:38 Monkeh|Lap You have to wear hearing protection, yes.
04:38 Monkeh|Lap Also it's huge and dirty.
04:38 Cprossu so put it outside?
04:38 Monkeh|Lap (well, not _that_ huge, but big enough)
04:38 Monkeh|Lap It IS outside.
04:38 Monkeh|Lap Work area is on the first floor.
04:38 Cprossu run a hose INSide
04:39 Monkeh|Lap Can't.
04:39 Monkeh|Lap By outside I mean not in the house. It can't actually be left outside.
04:39 Monkeh|Lap It's in the shed, the shed is locked, the shed is detached so I can't run a hose over and up the wall

04:41 Monkeh|Lap It might be okay actually but I'd strip it and rebuild it before using it :P
04:42 Cprossu that's fair enough
04:42 Monkeh|Lap .. Actually I tend to do that with everything anyway :D

04:48 Cprossu Monkeh|Lap: get down!
04:49 Monkeh|Lap So yeah, kinda tempted by that little compressor.
04:49 Monkeh|Lap But I do have a feeling it'd still need at least a small storage tank
04:49 Cprossu don't be, low duty cycle, oil-less, and they generally suck.
04:49 Cprossu and don't blow hard enough
04:49 Monkeh|Lap Which I'd have to regulate manually
04:49 Cprossu and overheat and melt their lines
04:50 Monkeh|Lap Well the overheating I can deal with.
04:50 Cprossu or the rubber diaphram
04:50 Monkeh|Lap Oil-less is actually good, one less thing it's spraying into my computers :P
04:50 Cprossu most aren't a true piston design
04:50 Cprossu no, you think that at first
04:50 Cprossu but oil filled is the way to go
04:50 Monkeh|Lap Then the bastard seizes?
04:51 Cprossu no. when it doesn't pump air anymore.
04:51 Monkeh|Lap Same difference
04:51 mantere joined #thegeekgroup
04:51 Monkeh|Lap Although
04:51 Monkeh|Lap I can see the oil-less part being part of the reason my current compressor is SO BLOODY NOISY
04:51 Cprossu either way they are shit and they were built for pumping up one tire every 6 months at best
04:51 Cprossu oil-less and direct drive are noise factors
04:51 Monkeh|Lap Which reminds me
04:51 Monkeh|Lap It's about time I drained it
04:52 Cprossu the slower the motor needs to spin the better off you are
04:52 Toastdude Night all
04:52 Monkeh|Lap Normally I leave the drain valve open when I'm not using it but I kept forgetting to close it
04:52 Monkeh|Lap Got kinda depressing the third time I let it run 30 minutes without actually filling the tank :D
04:53 Cprossu but yeah you already have something better than just canned air
04:53 Monkeh|Lap Yeah, I just can't get it up here.
04:53 Monkeh|Lap Well I can but..
04:53 Cprossu oooh I have an idea
04:53 Monkeh|Lap Let's clarify this
04:53 Cprossu what about a portable tank?!
04:53 Cprossu they are cheaaaap

05:24 Cprossu .c 80 pound to usd
05:24 BotSteve 127.23200 U.S. dollars
05:24 Cprossu that's way more than a 20% markup.
05:25 Monkeh|Lap As I said
05:25 Monkeh|Lap Add random number from 0 to  three times original price
05:25 Monkeh|Lap Then add 20%
05:25 Cprossu \lol
05:26 Monkeh|Lap This is assuming availability in the firstplace.
05:26 Cprossu well I'd rather spend $128 on a decent compressor than $110 on a tank

09:38 Thermoelectric I wish I could get away with not doing homework.
09:40 Polesch Doing homework is fun and enjoyable.
09:41 Thermoelectric It can be when there is only a little bit of it, it's no fun when the teacher gives you heap of homework.
09:42 Polesch Maths?
09:42 Thermoelectric Yep
09:44 Polesch What topics?
09:44 Thermoelectric It's trigonometry, doing the sine and cosine rules now.
09:45 Polesch That's not too bad.
09:45 Thermoelectric I agree, but the questions (for modelling and problem solving) are awful.
09:46 Polesch Are they word problems?
09:46 Thermoelectric Yeah.
09:46 Polesch That's another issue in itself.
09:47 Thermoelectric "An aircraft flies on a course of 322 degrees T for 250 km and then changes course to 244 degrees T to an airstrip where the plane lands. If the airstrip is 480 km from the starting position, calculate a) the distance travelled from the time that the course was changed until the plane landed, and b) the bearing from the airstrip to the starting position"
09:48 Thermoelectric I'm usually alright with word problems, but that one with all the bearings makes it really difficult.
10:01 Thermoelectric Sleep time. Have a fun day/night everyone!

11:40 Experimentonomen 500mA
11:41 Experimentonomen or less
11:41 Electricguy oki
11:41 Electricguy darn..
11:41 Electricguy the damn USB soundcard pulls 700mA on idle..
11:45 Sgt_Lemming stated or measured
11:46 Experimentonomen Electricguy, odd, usb powered devices are supposed to draw max 500mA after negotiation and 100mA before
11:47 Electricguy the thing is. this soundcard got a external powerbrick
11:49 Experimentonomen then it should draw the power from the external power supply rather than the usb port
11:49 Electricguy yes. but i would like to run it only from the USB /PS2 port
11:49 Electricguy but it's just to forget.. lol

12:17 Electricguy but the USB ports are not going to give enough power anyways
12:17 Electricguy the laptop used got 2 USB ports
12:17 Electricguy one already used for the sound card
12:18 Experimentonomen the lappy doesent have built in audio ?
12:18 Electricguy it does. but it sucks
12:18 Electricguy a laptop from 2001 got bad audio
12:19 Experimentonomen draw a wire from the ext power jack on the sound card to the power supply in the lappy, like a 12V rail or something
12:19 Electricguy maybe
12:19 Electricguy don't think the soundcard like 12V though.. LOL
12:23 Electricguy shitty old compaq armada 110 laptop
12:23 Electricguy 700MHz celeron..
12:25 Experimentonomen 5v rail then
12:26 Electricguy yeh
12:26 Experimentonomen make a 5V outlet on the lappy with a 1A fuse
12:26 Electricguy not sure how the laptop likes almost one amp higher current draw though
12:26 Experimentonomen maybe a inline 5V regulator on the lappys external power supply
12:27 Electricguy yeah possibly

14:47 SparkyProjects What about an external supply, but switch it from the usb supply ?
14:48 electricguy_ tonsofpcs, what?
14:49 electricguy_ SparkyProjects, nah. i want to power everything from one PSU
14:49 electricguy_ so the power brick for the lappy should do
14:52 SparkyProjects OK :)
14:52 Electricguy yeah
14:52 Electricguy tonsofpcs, if you mean the transmitter.. there is nothing wrong with it
14:53 Electricguy i know it should be a shielded box.. but it's so little power. so it's really not needed
14:54 SparkyProjects line with tinfoil
14:55 Electricguy nah

15:02 Electricguy !? that wire running from the module to the BNC jack is more than enough for 100mW..
15:02 Electricguy if you mean the stuff down in the left corner, that's the audio input
15:03 tonsofpcs between the exciter and amplifier...
15:03 Electricguy exciter?
15:03 Electricguy you mean the transmitter?
15:05 Electricguy if you mean the red wire running between the transmitter and the RF amp.. it's like 3cm long and laying flat on the copper board
15:05 Electricguy don't really see the problem
15:06 Electricguy and it works flawlessly.. so i'm not going to fix something that's not broken

16:23 pockitaru sony bought some rights to nintendo

16:24 pockitaru as well as greater internet capatability
16:24 astro73|roam ..... i think you're mixing up your companies
16:24 pockitaru and bluray
16:24 pockitaru microsofr
16:24 pockitaru sorry
16:24 Experimentonomen bluray is just overpriced dvds
16:24 pockitaru right
16:24 pockitaru lol
16:25 pockitaru but the new PS4 on the other hand if guna fucking suck
16:26 pockitaru for one you cant back play PS, PS2, or PS3 games
16:26 astro73|roam well, of course they'd use bluray
16:26 astro73|roam HD-DVD lost
16:26 astro73|roam it's only a format for the 360
16:26 Experimentonomen i think consoles are getting less attention, feels a bit like gaming is returning to the PC
16:26 astro73|roam you do realize it's muuuuuuuuuuch too early to be making any pronouncements on either console?
16:27 BatSteve Experimentonomen: I think that's only because right now the 360 is technically equivalent to a top-of-the-line PC produced four or five years ago.
16:27 BatSteve And so if you want to do anything innovative, at this point, you do it on PC
16:27 astro73|roam most PS3's can't play older games
16:27 pockitaru and what really blows for the PS4 is that if you buy a game for it thats it for that game it will never work on another system
16:27 pockitaru ps3 can
16:28 pockitaru you just need the hardware for backplay
16:28 astro73|roam right, which most models don't have
16:29 astro73|roam afaik, it was just a particular model from when they first came out
16:29 pockitaru so there is no resale value for ps4 games
16:30 astro73|roam sony likes to play that game
16:30 pockitaru right
16:30 Experimentonomen part of why sony has such bad reputation nowdays
16:31 astro73|roam because they're mongers, who prefer an iron fist to actually making customers happy?
16:31 BitViper wait, sony has a reputation ? I thought it had gone so low as to be non existant
16:31 Experimentonomen the rest is going from really good sturdy built quality on stereo gear to cheap nasty all flimsy plastic crap that breaks the same day the warranty expires
16:31 pockitaru now no one can buy the games and say your friend wants to barrow for thier ps4 the game wont even work on thiers they would have to purcis a coppy them selves
16:31 Electricguy also, take a PS3 in 29 years and see if it works! :P

16:32 pockitaru i still have an NES
16:32 pockitaru lol
16:32 pockitaru and sega
16:33 Experimentonomen i have a PS2 and a Xbox360
16:33 CSC_Doug I have a color computer :P and it still works lol
16:33 pockitaru nintendo, super nintendo and atari
16:33 Sgt_Lemming pockitaru, something like 10% of ps3's sold are backwards compatible
16:33 pockitaru fuck dream cast thats were sega fucked up
16:33 Experimentonomen i had a NES but i believe i threw ut out when i m oved, it stopped working while i was still a small kid
16:33 SparkyProjects I have a working BBC B+
16:33 Sgt_Lemming if you have anything but that, you are SOL for backwards compatibility
16:33 pockitaru i know
16:34 Sgt_Lemming and the list of games that worked on it is abysmal
16:34 Sgt_Lemming and then those that did, often have issues
16:34 Experimentonomen pock, the dream cast also seem to break if you move it
16:34 Electricguy the most game-ish thing i got is a Amiga A500
16:34 Sgt_Lemming so the PS3, really, wasn't backwards compatbile worth shit
16:35 BatSteve Ooh, are we comparing who has the oldest game system?  I have a deck of cards and some dice.
16:35 astro73|roam i'm willing to bet that PS2 emulators running on PS3 linux would have worked better
16:35 pockitaru yeah it has become harder to play the newer outdated consals
16:35 pockitaru it you cant take care of them lol
16:35 GGR Afternoon all... I'm hitting the airwaves in about 25 minutes. Hope you'll join me.
16:35 Experimentonomen i tried running a PS2 emulator, it was laggier than minecraft on 1GB ram and 1.6GHz cpu
16:36 astro73|roam BatSteve: i don't think i can top that, seeing as I don't have a woods
16:38 CSC_Doug @Live Feed can anyone move the camera? we are missing the unload haha
16:38 BatSteve astro73|roam: I would assume that soccer balls (or any kind of ball really) would probably be older than a deck of cards.  But I don't know about dice.
16:39 astro73|roam BatSteve: idk, what's that egyptian board game? do those count as dice?
16:39 Hackbat Pickup sticks is the oldest game
16:40 astro73|roam senet
16:41 SparkyProjects I thought hide and seek was the oldest game, you hide from the enemy while they try to find you :P
16:41 SparkyProjects :D
16:41 BatSteve Senet, yeah, I think that's right
16:42 Hackbat Does sex count as a game?
16:42 Hackbat That's pretty
16:42 astro73|roam SparkyProjects: that is frightenly plausible and utterly horrific
16:42 Hackbat *old
16:42 astro73|roam SparkyProjects: replace "enemy" with "predetor"
16:42 Hackbat though i guess it counts as hide and seek back in the old days
16:42 BatSteve Hackbat: I don't think so, on it's own, but it could probably be a component of several gomes
16:43 BatSteve *games
16:43 SparkyProjects Wasn't sex a sport ?
16:44 SparkyProjects (sexolympics comes to mind)
16:44 astro73|roam no, but it was a major component of many religions

16:45 Hackbat I'm heating up a cheap tv dinner
16:45 astro73|roam when did "nigger" become a curse word, up there with fuck, shit, and damn?
16:45 Monkeh|Lap astro73|roam: When people started taking offence
16:45 Nekoroms some time ago
16:46 astro73|roam does that mean I can yell "nigger" when i hit my thumb with a hammer?
16:46 BatSteve astro73|roam: last Thursday
16:47 Hackbat Theres one black comedian the encourages it
16:47 Monkeh|Lap Only if you want any mildly coloured person in the neighbourhood to come hit your head with the hammer
16:47 Hackbat According to him black people DO ude it a s a normal curseword
16:47 GGR_Mitchell I opened up IRC and saw the last few messages and started thinking, "do I even want to join in on this conversation"
16:47 Monkeh|Lap GGR_Mitchell: It's IRC.
16:47 Monkeh|Lap GGR_Mitchell: You NEVER want to join in.
16:47 Experimentonomen g'evenin mitch
16:47 Hackbat Is this the reason chris hates us?
16:47 Nekoroms GGR_Mitchell: see my link then it gets clearer
16:48 Experimentonomen just ignore them kids few lines up ;p
16:48 astro73|roam Hackbat: "nigger" or "nigga"? because apparently they're different words?
16:48 Hackbat Both I guess

16:49 GGR_Mitchell Hi Experimentonomen! And- Monkeh|Lap: Thansk for the advice.
16:49 Nekoroms want to see what they bought from the roadtrip
16:50 CSC_Doug Nekoroms, as Do I
16:50 Nekoroms if i remember they took timelapse cameras with them
16:51 CSC_Doug Yup and one was propped up on my truck haha
16:53 Nekoroms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCONvDn1iFg
16:54 Nekoroms i tried to film a timelapse once but my phonen doesnt want to make long timelapses
16:54 Monkeh|Lap That's because they want you to buy a camera
16:55 astro73|roam isn't there an app for that?
16:55 Nekoroms ye
16:55 Sgt_Lemming Nekoroms, more pictures
16:55 Sgt_Lemming the framerate on most of that is too fast
16:55 Nekoroms dunno if it went into powersave and app decided to stop
16:55 Nekoroms Sgt_Lemming: i know
16:55 Nekoroms Sgt_Lemming: that was the default setting
16:55 Sgt_Lemming kk
16:55 Sgt_Lemming normally 1 per second is a good bet
16:56 Nekoroms i did every 5 seconds
16:56 Nekoroms but 30 fps is too much
16:56 Nekoroms no wait 25 is the default
16:56 * Sgt_Lemming nods
16:56 Nekoroms i got about 38 minutes of my 3 hour drive
16:57 Sgt_Lemming it's better to have too many frames, and have to drop some, than not enough and... well fuck
16:57 asnopus joined #thegeekgroup
16:57 Nekoroms yeh
16:57 Nekoroms i just got into my truck and put it on :)
16:57 Nekoroms with default settings
16:58 Nekoroms taped my phone to some cardboard that held it up
16:58 CSC_Doug Is that a Tascam mixer I see on the back desk?
16:58 GGR_Mitchell We are starting the video chat in IRC/Livestream if you guys want to tune in!
16:59 CSC_Doug thanks!, had some great luck with them in the past, they look dated, but sound good. haha like the new board!
17:00 Nekoroms i build a digital pc based mixer :)
17:00 Nekoroms now it only has 8 in and 8 out
17:00 Nekoroms but when i get a new rack i can put some more preamps
17:01 astro73|roam Nekoroms: that's pretty coool
17:01 astro73|roam all it needs is software support
17:01 Nekoroms http://www.softwareaudioconsole.com/
17:01 BotSteve Title: SAC - Software Audio Console
17:01 Nekoroms if one has head about that
17:02 Nekoroms it can do 72 inputs and outputs
17:02 Ponko joined #thegeekgroup
17:03 astro73|roam oh, software-based mixing, not computer controlled mixer
17:03 Nekoroms i think SAC is damn good
17:04 Nekoroms so much options and still buying it doesnt break the bank
17:04 Nekoroms and then its only a matter of hardware
17:04 astro73|roam sorry, i'm used to linux's software mixing
17:04 astro73|roam which are .... poor
17:05 Nekoroms hardware isnt cheap in any way
17:05 Seroster Trying to unwind degauss wire for tesla coil use. Doesn't really work.
17:05 Nekoroms 500 for a rack computer, 750 for soundcard, 500 for some adat preamps
17:06 Nekoroms and a rack for all and some cables and wlan hardware and mixing laptop
17:06 astro73|roam hear i thought you were building one
17:06 astro73|roam like, from scratch
17:06 SparkyProjects Seroster, if the coil has some sort of glue on it, it hay soten with heat, might make things easier
17:07 Seroster Naah
17:07 Seroster I got the type that is just in a plastic sleeve
17:07 Seroster Really easy to get out
17:07 Nekoroms i still need to get a better rack and decent wlan boxes
17:08 Seroster Problem is then I got a coil of wire that is twisted around itself, two meters long, of flimsy wire. when you try to unwind that 99% of the time you just get a big damn mess to throw in the bin
17:13 GGR_Mitchell I'm video chatting with you guys now since we are in a commercial break on the stream.
17:14 CSC_Doug I should have said Tascam was good, back in the day haha, so much better out there now lol
17:16 GGR_Mitchell CSC_Doug: Are you watching the Livestream?
17:16 CSC_Doug Work with Audio here for the Science center
17:16 CSC_Doug we have some old equipment, just donated an 8 track reel to reel

17:21 GGR_Mitchell For the new members who just joined in- I am video/audio chatting with everyone right now through the Livestream during commercial breaks.
17:22 CSC_Doug Happy to help out, glad to see it get put to good use!
17:22 astro73|roam hi lee
17:22 GGR_Mitchell not commercial... just breaks. lol
17:22 astro73|roam why are you not doing school things? :P
17:22 CSC_Doug food for thought Van De Graff generators do not play well with mixers, we just lost a massive Mackie mixer from one being too close.
17:22 CSC_Doug It is now possesed haha
17:22 lwq-school no work to do ofcourse
17:22 Seroster BatSteve, leavin soon?
17:22 pockitaru helping a friend make a smart buy for a projector on amazon
17:23 BatSteve Seroster: yeah, pretty soon.  Time to go fly planes.

17:26 Seroster BatSteve, There's a day tomorrow too
17:26 pockitaru he isnt shure what he wants for a budget
17:26 astro73|roam CSC_Doug: i would think "static electricity maker" and "sensitive electronics" would be something you automatically don't mix
17:26 lwq-school lol @ http://www.engrish.com
17:27 BatSteve True
17:27 BatSteve Okay, off I go
17:27 BotSteve Title: Engrish.com
17:27 pockitaru i said that if he wants a good one he will be looking at about $500.00
17:27 Seroster Because, BatSteve and GGR_Mitchell, as you probably notice, it's irritating to see half a conversation when you are not listening yourself, and it's probably equally irritating for you to have to sort through the vat ammounts of nonsense that goes on in here to find radio-related stuff.
17:27 CSC_Doug <astro73|roam>, you make a good point! the 45,000 Watt Tesla coil I am sure did not help either lol.
17:28 lwq-school nottrue. You can get a decent one for around 200
17:28 CSC_Doug the old Data projectors with 1024X768 play well with 720 res and work pretty good and can be had cheap used.

17:29 CSC_Doug I started out with all CRT projectors. I found LCD to have good color saturation. and DLP to be crisp but lacking on color. they are getting better now though.
17:29 astro73|roam CSC_Doug: probably not, no
17:29 pockitaru every geek is important
17:30 GGR_Mitchell Seroster: I just talked to you in the Livestream but if you didn't hear... that wouldn't be a conversation with me but for station management.
17:31 astro73|roam isn't there #tgg:livestream for that?

17:41 CSC_Doug On small scale I was able to use a 1,000 Watt magnatron to disipate a tornado with microwave radiation. Can only imagine the power that would be needed for a full scale storm.. hmm Could save allot of lives. But radiation exposure would be a problem.
17:42 pockitaru im not compencating i just really love sound
17:42 astro73|roam especially since they never play good music
17:42 astro73|roam and all you hear is "thumpa thumpa"

17:42 Experimentonomen pock, well home audio is different
17:42 pockitaru lol

17:45 pockitaru and the one i have now is a down gread from what i use to have
17:45 pockitaru lol
17:46 GGR_Mitchell LOL - what did you use to have and how close are your neighbors from your house?
17:46 pockitaru my old system was a 15,000 watt 10.12 suround
17:47 pockitaru with a 64 band equlizer

17:47 astro73|roam wait, you had more bass that satalites?
17:47 pockitaru well ty
17:47 Experimentonomen most of my system barely makes it to 50 watts a channel
17:48 pockitaru that was back in 2007 i had that
17:48 CSC_Doug I had to install (2) deticated 20 amp circuits for my rack lol
17:48 pockitaru as home audio
17:48 CSC_Doug can only imagine your power needs!
17:48 astro73|roam 10.12???
17:48 CSC_Doug my guess is active crossovers
17:48 Experimentonomen the most powerful amp i ever built was able to crank out alittle over 600 watts into 2 ohms
17:49 pockitaru and im rebuilding my system now and its going to cost me around $8,000.00
17:49 pockitaru total
17:49 Experimentonomen my system has only costed me the shipping of parts
17:49 CSC_Doug building on the cheap then huh? :P haha
17:50 pockitaru no thats for the system
17:50 pockitaru not all of it

17:57 pockitaru are*
17:57 CSC_Doug <pockitaru> I just checked our IMAX theater is only 15,000 watts haha, so you had the same power as an entire IMAX theater lol
17:58 Experimentonomen car audio subs tend to not work very well in a home since they rely on gain effects the coupe of a car has
17:59 pockitaru hay GGR_Mitchell saw the vid of what you guys did to the radio switcher and looks nice
17:59 Seroster GGR_Mitchell, I thought you were the person running the station
17:59 Experimentonomen though i did run a 8" car sub at home with a 10-20 watt tubeamp, it did rumble pretty good though
17:59 tonsofpcs radio switcher?
17:59 Seroster The change for you would be surprisingly easy, instead of typing /join #thegeegroup you would type /join #alternativechannel
17:59 pockitaru well if you take car audio and play it in home its never good for car again and visaversa
18:00 Seroster I think it would make your life a lot easier
18:00 GGR_Mitchell Pickitaru: Thanks so much, I appreciate it! We have awesome new technology and it's great... I can actually talk with everyone through the Livestream without it going "on-air".
18:00 GGR_Mitchell Tonsofpcs: S/he meant mixer.
18:00 pockitaru yeah i saw that
18:00 CSC_Doug I like this new setup allot!
18:00 GGR_Mitchell Seroster: No, my job title at The GGR and The Geek Group is News Anchor... I am not in charge.
18:01 Seroster Then who is?
18:01 pockitaru lol
18:01 Monkeh Seroster: The Boden, I would guess.
18:01 Electricguy Omni!
18:01 tonsofpcs the board?
18:01 GGR_Mitchell Thanks CSC_Doug! The "change" started happening Friday at 2, right after my show and went for about 12 hours.
18:02 tonsofpcs I think the new setup needs a can or twelve of fader cleaner ;)
18:02 GGR_Mitchell And no, Monkeh. I do not know if I can actually comment on the new Management yet... but I can assure you it is not Chris.
18:02 Monkeh Interesting.
18:03 GGR_Mitchell Tonsofpcs: It's not the mixer... it's the operator LOL... With the new system set-up, the Livestream hears the studio feed (when mic is on, music gets cut)... the stream doesn't hear the cuts.
18:03 * angy fondles Seroster
18:03 tonsofpcs GGR_Mitchell: no, when they were setting it up they had issue with one of the pan pots.  It's probably never been cleaned inside
18:04 Monkeh tonsofpcs: Clean it with FIRE
18:04 GGR_Mitchell The mixer has been cleaned, Tonsofpcs.
18:04 pockitaru my room mate said that my system is too big
18:04 pockitaru lol
18:04 GGR_Mitchell I'm signing off for today, folks... I actually have tomorrow off so I'll see talk to you guys Thursday!

18:10 CSC_Doug ooh, I see orbitron Rings on the floor.
18:11 CSC_Doug anyone working on the truck unload in here?
18:11 Seroster SparkyProjects, got meself a hot glue gun too =
18:12 SparkyProjects Cool, hope you got plenty of gluesticks, you'll be trying it out on everything :D
18:13 Experimentonomen HOTSNOT! :P
18:13 Seroster Had a glue gun before too, until it 'sploded.
18:14 SparkyProjects Here's a tip, in some instaces you can stick something down, then reheat the bod with a soldering iron so you can compress it further for a closer fit
18:14 SparkyProjects Like putting a few glue blobs on your primary, then heating the wire with an iron to fix them
18:19 Seroster Oooo
18:19 Seroster LOLOLOLOL!
18:20 Seroster "Make sure the current from the wall socket complies with the voltage stated on the tool"
18:20 Seroster So... What. xD
18:21 * Cprossu looks at his wall socket, yells *COMPLY YOU BITCH!*
18:21 Seroster Yeah, but current and voltage.
18:21 SparkyProjects ah, so you can't plug a 240volt tool into a 13 amp socket, that's where i've been going wrong :P
18:21 Seroster I haven't got any 240amp sockets :/
18:21 Cprossu japanenglishnese
18:21 angy you need to upgrade!
18:22 Cprossu you shoulda seen the brake pads for a bike ynos worked on, the box had something hillarious on it
18:23 * Experimentonomen looks at Cprossu
18:24 SparkyProjects On one of Jagnutter's vids, a car ignition switch had 'fahrt' on it
18:24 Experimentonomen that russian looking car, the ro80 ?

18:52 astro73|roam Electricguy: that is fantastically awesome.
18:53 Cprossu Seroster, astro73, no seperate channel for streaming =P
18:53 Electricguy indeed it is
18:53 astro73|roam Cprossu: not yet :P
18:53 astro73|roam it's IRC, joining a channel summons it into being
18:54 Seroster That is probably not what he meant.
18:54 astro73|roam i know
18:56 Seroster Cprossu, mind expanding on that? Is it a personal opinion or a statement from highup? Why not?
18:58 Cprossu this is a statement from high up.

18:58 Cprossu we've split up the irc enough, trying to bring in more folks here is a pain.
18:58 tonsofpcs Cprossu: thank you.
18:59 Seroster rIGHT.
18:59 tonsofpcs if you want to talk streaming in general, there's 20 other channels for it, also, no need for a new one.
18:59 Seroster Thing is when there is live streaming it kills the rest of the chat.
18:59 Cprossu Seroster, chat dies by itself just fine.
18:59 Cprossu heh
19:00 Seroster And people talking to live stream is insanely annoying, since people rarely type out who they are talking to.
19:00 * CaptainNiobe not impressed with the highups. is very not impressed with the highups.
19:00 Cprossu besides I am curious, what specific interesting event did the radio livestream kill?
19:00 Seroster That we don't know, since it didn't happen.
19:00 angy Serosters happy time =)
19:01 Seroster That question is about as nonsensical as "what if Hitler was aborted" or "what if he made it as a painter instead"
19:01 Cprossu Seroster,m quit being a pain in my butt =)

19:28 mashpriborintorg Well, I go too sleep, bye
19:28 ProducerBill night
19:28 lwq1996 so bill. how was it like being in pittsburgh? anyone get shot
19:30 ProducerBill No it was just a hard weekend. However if the truck had not died that would have gone off perfict.
19:30 lwq1996 donte died?
19:31 ProducerBill ya he died and caused a day delay
19:31 lwq1996 what happened to him?
19:32 CSC_Doug_ Dante Died :(
19:32 ProducerBill Well Pittsburg is hilly and Donte is old... So he just couldn't do it
19:32 lwq1996 lol. yeah pa does have alot of hills
19:33 ProducerBill Even if Dante hadn't just warn out it would have been a push to make it up some of return hills.
19:33 lwq1996 poor truck needs some work :/
19:35 ProducerBill Poor truck is going to live out the rest of it's life in a parking lot I think.
19:35 lwq1996 in pa?
19:35 ProducerBill brb
19:35 CSC_Doug_ yup greentree PA
19:35 lwq1996 hmmm
19:37 lwq1996 only a 2hour drive from where i live
19:45 lwq1996 i should ask my dad if we could drive out to the site and save dante
19:46 ProducerBill Might have to fight Doug for it... I think he has plans in mind to make it self aware.
19:46 ProducerBill :)
19:46 lwq1996 doug you a car and truck guy?
19:47 lwq1996 wait. does dante require a CDL?
19:47 ProducerBill I don't think so
19:48 lwq1996 if doug wants to go up and drive it back i think i may be able to get my dad help get it back in working order
19:49 ProducerBill I am not thinking about it... I think we are ready to move on....
19:50 CSC_Doug_ I had to make a rash choice with Dante, it was in a place where it was going to be impounded in 2 days. I spoke with the property owner.
19:51 CSC_Doug_ So I had to get it moved or it would be towed. So a good friend of mine invested $1,000 to have it towed to his lot and is working on it, the clutch is gone.
19:51 CSC_Doug_ there may not be a future for Dante... well not a cheap one.
19:52 lwq1996 ah. poor dante
19:52 HighMan Can someone help me with my light switch...
19:52 lwq1996 yes...
19:52 HighMan Closet light won't work, take my meter out and test the contacts on the switch it self. No voltage what so ever.
19:52 ProducerBill gtg tty
19:52 HighMan I am going to hate tracing back the wire if there is a short.
19:52 HighMan And power to room is off.
19:53 lwq1996 the braker triped?
19:53 lwq1996 def a tripped breaker
19:53 HighMan No.... I turned it off myself so I don't shock the living hell out of me.
19:53 HighMan I checked it with the breaker on.
19:54 lwq1996 your breaker is bad
19:54 HighMan How... My whole room has power.
19:54 HighMan That switch is inside my room.
19:54 HighMan Only if sparky was here :(
19:54 lwq1996 bad switch
19:55 HighMan I tested conductivity between hot and neutral (not ground) wire both on and off. On it beeps, off it doesn't.
19:55 lwq1996 dont fucking shock yourself but check check the wire leading into the switch
19:55 HighMan I did ^
19:55 HighMan Nothing, I then pulled out the switch with the power to my room off.
19:55 * Seroster giggles
19:55 HighMan Switch is ok. Power to switch isn't. Tested it zero volts. Breaker to room is off now.
19:56 lwq1996 do you got a rat problem?
19:56 HighMan Seroster, Can you help me :(
19:56 Seroster Nine holes down to bedrock, spaced 24 blocks, TNT.
19:56 Seroster Imma make a hole!
19:56 HighMan lwq1996, No...
19:56 newguy joined #thegeekgroup
19:56 Seroster Ohgod, you fucking around with mains?
19:56 lwq1996 its that pussy 110v mains :P
19:57 HighMan I'm not in europe with 220.
19:57 Seroster So?
19:57 Seroster You can still kill yourself with it
19:57 HighMan I also like to say main to room is off.
19:57 lwq1996 you can. but you have to be pretty stupid to do it
19:58 Seroster Can you trace the wire from the closet light to it's source?
19:58 Seroster It might be tied into the room lights, or the room wall sockets
19:58 astro73|roam that is the question, where is it loosing power?
19:58 Seroster OR a seperate breaker
19:58 HighMan ...
19:58 HighMan The 2 switches adjacent to it works.
19:58 Seroster To figure out where the problem is you gotta start at the beginning.
19:59 Seroster Then the switch seems like an obvious place to start.
19:59 HighMan One second, let me test my 2 adjacent switches.
19:59 lwq1996 ok. you try testing the connection between the wire one step back from the switch?
20:00 Seroster Pull the power, make sure nobody will/can turn it on and pull the light switch out, check the L and the N on it, it should have continuity in one state and not in the other
20:00 HighMan Intreseting.
20:00 Seroster If the switch seems fine, hook your multimeter to the wires feeding your switch and turn power on.
20:00 HighMan 2 switches don't work.
20:00 Seroster Does your house have threephase?
20:00 HighMan Switch is fine.
20:00 HighMan And doubt it. brb switching mains off.
20:00 lwq1996 im thinking the wire nuts or tape feel off of it
20:00 Seroster A lot of strange faults (like lights working but outlets don't) can be caused by one phase being borked.
20:01 HighMan No... There is no power from the main wires.
20:01 Seroster Then you gotta figure out where the mains wires are supposed to get their power fro.
20:01 lwq1996 got a wire diagram of you house?
20:01 Seroster If there is a connection box somewhere (can either be a plastic box in the ceiling or a round cover on the wall)?
20:02 HighMan I'd have to get up to attic, and nvm. Only one thing is borked so far.
20:02 lwq1996 im also thinking he was playing with a plug one step back from the switch and borked the connection
20:03 Seroster What has happened is one of those: Switch is borked. Wire to switch is borked. Breaker is borked.
20:03 HighMan I think wire is borked. But i'll have to get up to the attic -_-
20:03 Seroster What kind of switch was it? A simple oneway or a threeway switch?
20:03 Seroster If you hook a threeway up the wrong way you make interesting things happen.
20:03 lwq1996 lol ive seen that happen
20:03 astro73|roam also, blackboard? evil
20:03 lwq1996 how olds the wiring in your house?
20:03 HighMan One way
20:04 HighMan I got this house 2005.
20:04 HighMan I see romex xD
20:04 HighMan Brb going to get ladder.
20:04 HighMan Attic here we go.
20:04 lwq1996 no how old is the wiring not how long youve been there
20:05 Seroster lwq1996, I hooked a threeway in properly
20:05 Seroster Both places were properly connected, and it still didn't work.
20:05 Seroster Measured it and got straaange readings.
20:05 lwq1996 lol
20:05 CSC_Doug_ sounds like a dropped neutral
20:05 Seroster After some digging (Hey, I had following wires, black black and black)...
20:05 lwq1996 made a transformer :P
20:05 Seroster CSC_Doug_, Nope. =)
20:05 Seroster Carter system.
20:06 astro73|roam .w carter system
20:06 BotSteve "In building wiring, multiway switching is interconnection of two or more light switches to control lighting from more than one location." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carter_system
20:06 HighMan Be back in 10, got huge ass ladder
20:06 Seroster http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/f2/Carter-system.svg
20:07 HighMan brb
20:07 lwq1996 i would hate to live in uk or some other place with 220v. it fucking hurts with 110 but 220 now that is what the defintion of hurt is
20:07 Seroster Depends on how grounded you are.
20:07 Seroster Also... I love living in a place with real voltage. We get away with half the copper.
20:07 astro73|roam i enjoy that graphic and caption
20:08 astro73|roam wikipedia is not usually so blunt at "The Carter system is not recommended."
20:08 Seroster Err
20:08 Seroster In this case it's about as straightforward as saying "infanticide is not recommended"
20:08 Seroster Hey, I'd even argue that saying "The carter system is fucking retarded" is fine =P
20:10 Seroster What does the acronym PDF mean?

22:27 * wannabe1987 is holding a puppy
22:27 exor674 GIRL POWER!
22:27 exor674 or something
22:28 KawaiiJess wannabe1987, I bought a ceramic chef's knife and holy shit they're sharp
22:28 wannabe1987 hows the handle?
22:28 KawaiiJess Nice
22:28 KawaiiJess Very natural feeling to hold. It's a 6" Kyocera
22:29 KawaiiJess $54, but it seems worth it because I just cut a large orange, peel and all, and it felt like I was cutting an apple
22:29 wannabe1987 damn
22:29 exor674 Yyocera?
22:29 exor674 er Kyocera?
22:30 exor674 isn't that a cellphone company?
22:30 KawaiiJess I didn't have to use a serrated movement either. Just straight downward pushes and it was through like butter
22:30 HighMan Isn't ceramic brittle?
22:30 KawaiiJess I don't know if they're the same company exor674
22:30 exor674 IIRC, as long as you don't apply torsion to the blade, it's happy
22:30 KawaiiJess Yeah it's brittle. Ceramic knives can't be used to like pry open oysters and you definitely can't drop them or they shatter
22:31 HighMan That sucks
22:31 wannabe1987 im prone to dropping things
22:31 exor674 I am going to go stuff chipotle in my face
22:31 exor674 and ti will be nom
22:31 KawaiiJess Well that's the trade off to having a blade that will literally be as sharp as the day you bought it, a year after heavy use. Assuming you take care of it of course
22:32 exor674 I'd prefer a laser knife
22:32 KawaiiJess What, like a lightsaber?
22:32 wannabe1987 ??
22:33 Seroster HighMan, This is zirxon ceramic
22:33 BotSteve wannabe1987: dryer
22:33 Seroster KawaiiJess, You'd be surprised how much of a beating they can take
22:34 KawaiiJess Lol apparently the problem with using them for prying is they can cut right into the cutting board and then break the tip off because it's wedged in plastic
22:34 KawaiiJess That's basically what the care guide says
22:34 Seroster HighMan, How often do you pry with your chef's knives?
22:34 Toast-Away Bye all
22:34 HighMan Not at all
22:34 Toast-Away left #thegeekgroup
22:34 KawaiiJess Can't use it to smash garlic
22:34 KawaiiJess Can't put it in a dishwasher
22:35 HighMan lolol
22:35 Seroster KawaiiJess, If you are EVER prying with a chef's knife that cost more than ten bucks you kinda deserve breaking it.
22:35 exor674 GARLIC SMASH?
22:35 Seroster KawaiiJess, What kind of handle does it have?
22:35 Seroster Also... Garlic smash? You do that with your hands...
22:35 KawaiiJess Yeah, I can't recall ever using a chef's knife to pry anything
22:35 KawaiiJess Yeah I don't know. I'm just reading off the care guide
22:35 Seroster I can. But not a proper knife.
22:35 KawaiiJess As far as the handle goes
22:36 Seroster You might forget that the care guide is written for infants and idiots?
22:36 Seroster If the handle is metal or plastic (i.E not wood) it should be fine in the dishwasher.
22:36 KawaiiJess The handle is presumably made out of dense plastic
22:36 Seroster It'll be fine.
22:36 KawaiiJess It's not cold so I doubt it's ceramic
22:36 Seroster Does it feel kinda oily?
22:36 KawaiiJess It's just very smooth plastic
22:36 KawaiiJess With a shine
22:37 Seroster Hm
22:37 Seroster could be UHMDW

22:39 KawaiiJess Loool
22:39 Seroster lol
22:40 KawaiiJess Death and taxes xD
22:40 exor674 waaa waa
22:40 exor674 I touched a sharp knife and it cut me
22:40 exor674 waa
22:40 exor674 *cough*
22:40 Seroster It's a KNIFE... It doesn't care if it's cutting beef or fingers...
22:41 KawaiiJess I dropped a 10" Cutco chef's knife a few months ago and it spun while falling and took a chunk out of my shin while I was dodging out of the way :/
22:41 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: Much like electricity really doesn't care what colour insulation is on the wire
22:41 KawaiiJess The tip swung around and stabbed me somehow mid fall so it was just a tiny puncture wound thank god
22:41 Seroster It doesn't even care IF there is insulation on the wire.
22:41 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: Well... it does care but only if you're playing RF. :)
22:41 exor674 or with significantly high voltage
22:42 exor674 doesn't care that thatis an insulator
22:42 Monkeh|Lap exor674: It takes a hell of a voltage to pretend PVC doesn't insulate :)
22:42 exor674 hahahahah you try and stop me with a silly plastic
22:44 KawaiiJess Yeah y'know what's nice about the blade is they actually bothered to round off the tip and the heel so I can't accidentally puncture myself again
22:44 wannabe1987 ...
22:44 wannabe1987 she cut a wire
22:44 wannabe1987 wtf
22:44 Seroster That's very nice, KawaiiJess
22:44 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: Wait, what?

22:45 wannabe1987 idk what for tho
22:45 Monkeh|Lap ..
22:45 wannabe1987 and she's playing dub step
22:45 wannabe1987 masterofmonks: needs more wub!
22:45 Seroster KawaiiJess, much like with this mean bastard, http://swe-se.fiskars.com/var/fiskars_emea/storage/images/frontpage/products/wood-preparation/axes/126003-brush-hook-x3/399439-31-eng-EU/126003-Brush-Hook-X3_product_main_large.jpg - the tip is blunt enough not to slice your leg off if you screw up.
22:45 Monkeh|Lap wannabe1987: ... Fire.
22:45 Monkeh|Lap Use lots of it.
22:45 wannabe1987 why do you think i wanna move?!
22:46 masterofmonks I so do not do dub step.
22:46 KawaiiJess Haha
22:46 KawaiiJess That would fucking suck
22:46 wannabe1987 yes mom i know
22:46 masterofmonks You kids and your crazy music.
22:46 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: Hmm, speaking of safe knives, do hold on.
22:46 Monkeh|Lap masterofmonks: I know. Queen, mind blowing stuff.
22:46 wannabe1987 i dnot' like it either!
22:47 wannabe1987 i just figured someone should suffer with me!
22:47 masterofmonks Monkeh, Seven Seas of Rhye what?
22:47 Seroster I sharpened all the old dull knives in school, now you can actually use them for whatever their intended purpose is, probably stripping wire, and I made scoutknives out of every last one of them. (completely removing the tip)

22:48 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: http://www.heinnie.com/uploads/images_products_large/3512.jpg
22:49 Monkeh|Lap I would like one without quite so many serrations, though.
22:49 Seroster What...
22:49 Seroster the fuck is that?
22:49 Seroster I never got the point of serrated knives.
22:49 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: Rope cutting. Rather hard to dull.
22:49 Seroster Great if you are cutting bread or fiberglass insulation, but other than that it just gets in my way
22:50 Seroster Then I assume it's a climbing knife?
22:50 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: It comes from Alaska, so try fisherman's.
22:50 Seroster '-'
22:50 Monkeh|Lap They do make a non-serrated version apparently
22:51 Monkeh|Lap I fancy trying one
22:51 Seroster More serrations than this feels stupid: http://www.swordsswords.com/images/products/detail/gerber_plain_fast_draw_folding_Knife.jpg
22:51 Monkeh|Lap I do like the serrated section on my knife

22:52 wannabe1987 noes!!!! my external is dying/dead and i can't watch sg-1 now
22:52 KawaiiJess Oh bah
22:52 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: Yeah, my normal knife is like that.
22:52 Monkeh|Lap Seroster: Great when a bit of tough nylon rope or that damn box strapping comes along.
22:52 Seroster Meh
22:52 Monkeh|Lap That stuff annoys me
22:52 Seroster I prefer a sharp swizz officer's knife.
22:52 Monkeh|Lap Mostly because it's so variable
22:53 Monkeh|Lap Some is loose and can be taken apart with a fingernail
22:53 KawaiiJess Here's the other knife I bought: http://www.amazon.com/Leatherman-830669-Charge-Nylon-Sheath/dp/B000LG9YUU

23:31 wannabe1987 i wish i had 2-3k to drop on a computer o.O
23:31 KawaiiJess I have $2400 right now and I'm figuring by the time it comes out, I'll either have way more than enough and just outright buy it in cash, or I'll subsidize it with a small loan so I don't go broke
