15:37 wannabe1987 "busy"  aka bored at work
15:37 Electricguy hehe oki :)
15:42 * wannabe1987 dropped Cprossu off at the airport this AM
15:53 Cprossu *yay*
15:53 Cprossu thanks wannabe1987!
15:53 wannabe1987 hi  did you get through security ok?
15:53 * Experimentonomen listens to NES tunes
15:53 wannabe1987 no problem.  i work like 5 minutes from the airport
15:53 Cprossu yeah it took ~35 mins, not too bad
15:53 Electricguy lol
15:53 wannabe1987 not bad at all.  i once missed a flight (and all connecting flights) due to security....
15:54 Cprossu thus is the life of someone who drags 60lbs of tech stuff on their person
15:56 wannabe1987 i was not draggig tech stuff :P  i was headed to DIA for a week volunteering, and my flight was at 6:35, the desk opened at 5:45 and security did the same, but there was a 6:10 flight and *they* got proiority over me.....so i missed the flight by like 2 seconds.....
15:56 Cprossu awww =(
15:57 wannabe1987 so i called my dad (it was his name on the debit/credit card) and he switched flights around for me and i made it to DIA within 2 hours of my original time :)
15:57 Cprossu yeah I picked my time so I was the only person there and sent the few people who came after me ahead of me before I pushed my stuff through
15:57 Twinix joined #thegeekgroup
15:57 Twinix hi all
15:57 wannabe1987 good idea.  did they have any issues with your stuff?
15:57 wannabe1987 hi Twinix!
15:58 Cprossu people always look at me weird when I grab 7 bins right from the start
15:58 wannabe1987 i told boden about you guys vaping and he said "good job!"
15:58 Cprossu they had to search both my bags, and split it up to identify everything
15:59 wannabe1987 you didn't have any issues tho?
15:59 Cprossu the soldering iron didn't cause as much concern as it did last time
15:59 wannabe1987 good
15:59 Twinix nice i'm glad i found out about vaping
15:59 Cprossu nope not at all ;)
15:59 wannabe1987 cool
15:59 Cprossu Preparation is key and the reason I was going to be at the airport 'by 11:50' for a 1:35 flight'
16:00 Cprossu so thanks again =D
16:00 wannabe1987 you're welcome :)  any time
16:00 wannabe1987 our airport is boring compared to milwaukee, but it has wifi
16:00 Cprossu btw what's up with the B concord, wannabe1987? it's like Gate B1, B2, B3, B6, B4, B5
16:01 wannabe1987 they didn't consult a woman, i guess :P
16:01 Cprossu perhaps they were counting by wrapping around the building
16:01 wannabe1987 or they went to a bad school?
16:01 wannabe1987 i think so
16:02 Cprossu sort of like a microchip
16:02 wannabe1987 *lost*
16:02 Cprossu only backwards
16:02 wannabe1987 sure!

16:13 wannabe1987 ok.  i dono't want to use a minute to do such a thing
16:14 Cprossu fair enough
16:16 * Cprossu notices that his 'o', 't', and 'e' keys are the most worn on his netbook
16:16 wannabe1987 lol
16:16 wannabe1987 mie is "s" "l" and n
16:16 wannabe1987 and the down arrow
16:16 Cprossu also for some reason I only use the right hand part of my spacebar
16:17 wannabe1987 most people space with their right hand i've found out
16:17 Electricguy i use both.. :P
16:17 Electricguy whatever hand is closest :P
16:17 * Cprossu tries out spaceing with his left hand, can't type as fast, darn!
16:18 Cprossu rofl copters I guess it is a feel thing, etc
16:18 Cprossu I wonder

16:27 Carvagon hello
16:27 mashpriborintorg so, does full soda cans in Thumper = candies wrapped in aluminium foil as a result ?
16:27 * Cprossu is chillin' out at teh GRR airport
16:27 wannabe1987 what a boring place to chill :P
16:27 SparkyProjects joined #thegeekgroup
16:28 Cprossu it's pretty relaxing though
16:28 Experimentonomen hanging around on a seat on the airport sounds dull
16:28 wannabe1987 yeah.  not much traffic, smallish airport
16:28 Cprossu compared to drama I'll take it any day
16:29 Electricguy last time i hung out at an airport i was playing Tetris on a overclocked gameboy Pocket for almost 3 hours.. lol :P
16:29 Experimentonomen hm
16:29 Cprossu haha
16:30 * Cprossu would want a potentiometer rigged to the clockspeed in some way so he could underclock it at will

16:31 Electricguy as 8MHz is twice the speed.. and SO DAMN NICE!
16:31 Carvagon so who has an old xbox layin around they arent usin?
16:31 wannabe1987 i tried to get a free one :/
16:32 Electricguy they use to be found in dupsters pretty often
16:32 Experimentonomen Electricguy, especially the older versions of the xbox 360
16:32 Electricguy yeah
16:32 Experimentonomen some revisions dropped like flies
16:32 Electricguy RROD FTW! :D
16:32 Carvagon i want an original to hack
16:33 Electricguy check ebay..
16:33 Electricguy they use to go damn cheap
16:33 Carvagon yeah gamestop wants 40-50
16:33 Experimentonomen wasent the first xbox more or less just a regular pc in a plastic box and a custom os ?
16:33 Electricguy it is
16:34 Electricguy a custom made PC mobo with other connectors..
16:34 Electricguy running special software
16:34 Cprossu which is why you should go with a micro itx board
16:34 Carvagon yeah and with the right game it will install and run linux
16:34 Experimentonomen the os may even be windows xp with the xbox gui in autostart
16:34 Sgt_Lemming joined #thegeekgroup
16:34 Cprossu xD
16:34 Cprossu no it's abit more complicated than that Experimentonomen
16:34 Experimentonomen g'aftahnoon/evenin lemmington
16:35 wannabe1987 hi lem
16:35 Electricguy yeah get a cheap ITX mobo instead.. no need to hack an old xbox with shitty performance... :P
16:35 Cprossu yay AMD e-350!
16:35 Cprossu love those things
16:35 Sgt_Lemming grrr, fucking ISP
16:35 * Experimentonomen is convinced that TDA7293 is much better sounding than the LM3886, atleast with 100µF caps on feedback and bootstrap rathern than the original 22µF
16:36 Sgt_Lemming they are doing maintenance and just took down my connection for >1.5 hours
16:36 Electricguy trolololol
16:36 Cprossu glad to see you back Sgt_Lemming
16:36 Sgt_Lemming thanks
16:36 Carvagon yeah but i can hack it and make it run games with no loading and tada!  it is now my emulator machine
16:37 Sgt_Lemming but yeah, ITX boards make for awesome HTPC
16:37 Sgt_Lemming and good little servers, and decent SFF gaming boxes :-D
16:37 Electricguy yeah.. get an ITX mobo and a small case and a pair of xbox360 controllers :P
16:37 Carvagon lol but i can do this for free in about an hout
16:37 Electricguy or a couple of classic xbox controllers and change the plug on them
16:37 Carvagon *hour
16:37 Experimentonomen if i had a good soldering station and a steady hand, i'd install a modchip in my PS2 so it can run burned games
16:37 Electricguy IF you can find an old xbox... :P
16:38 Carvagon lol good point
16:38 Cprossu I seem to remember lots of good pogo pinned modchips for the ps2
16:38 Electricguy or look for some newer thin client PC..
16:38 Electricguy a emulator PC the size of a Wii...
16:38 Experimentonomen Cprossu, when i looked around, i could only find the ones that solder to a really fine pitch thing on the mainboard
16:39 Experimentonomen i have the PS2 slim
16:39 Electricguy i chipped a xbox360 once.. NOT FUN!
16:39 Electricguy included dremel action.. IN the chips..
16:39 Monkeh Cprossu: Just a bit more complicated, like breaking PCI specs on the bus so things go loopy :)
16:39 Electricguy electronics brain surgery...
16:39 Cprossu ahh
16:39 Cprossu in flight rocket surgery ;)
16:40 Experimentonomen i could have chipped my xbox 360 with a modchip that is just placed and then soldered with no wires what so ever, only to find out my dashboard version was too new
16:43 Carvagon i just like doin it with the xbox because its fun to take apart lol and i can slam a huge hard drive in it.  plus the interface thats loaded is pretty cool
16:44 * Electricguy fondles his huge 80MB HDD from 1989
16:44 Electricguy physically huge at least.. :P
16:45 Experimentonomen joined #thegeekgroup
16:45 Carvagon lol both.  would be nice to have a xbox with 1 terabyte in it lol
16:45 mashpriborintorg hmmm dead usb key. 1 Gb but detected as a 8 Mb capacity. Windows unable to format it.
16:46 mashpriborintorg crack it open time
16:46 Electricguy may be macified too.. :P
16:46 Electricguy the Microdrive from my ipod showed up as 8MB too.. and the computer was like "NO I DON'T WANT TO TALK TO HIM!!!"
16:46 Electricguy :P

17:25 DeKemp electricguy here?
17:25 Electricguy sort of.. playing minecraft
17:25 DeKemp :P
17:25 DeKemp i got a question on scope probes
17:25 Carvagon chris liked my geek group remix and its got 215 views now and reesk92 commented lol
17:25 DeKemp might be a noob question. butt
17:26 Electricguy mkay
17:26 lwq1996 Carvagon: link to the remix?
17:27 DeKemp i hav 10:1 probes, if i measuer a 3v squarewave. and i set it to 1v/div  should i the wave be 1 division high?
17:27 * lwq1996 pokes Carvagon
17:28 Carvagon its not finished.  its barely started actually.  more of a test to see how teh background noise from the captain's blog would bleed thru

17:28 BotSteve Title: Geek Group Remix - YouTube
17:28 lwq1996 ah
17:28 DeKemp ie. i should not be 3 devidsions high
17:28 Electricguy dekemp. no. cause one division (square) is one volt.. so 3V = 3 divisions..
17:29 DeKemp hmm, what is the 10:1 then?
17:30 Electricguy it divides the input signal with factor 10
17:30 DeKemp ah
17:30 Electricguy so then you have to put 30V in to get 3 divisions
17:30 DeKemp :)
17:30 wannabe1987 .weather kgrr
17:30 BotSteve Clear ☼, 78.8℉ (26℃), 30.12in (1017mb), Gentle breeze 8kt (↑) - KGRR 16:53Z
17:31 DeKemp manual told me to put it on 0.5v/div  and i should get a wave that was 6 devisions. but it where 3
17:31 DeKemp on the 3v cal output
17:33 DeKemp if you don't know that the scope is doing that, it can mess up your mesurments
17:34 DeKemp thinking it's 1.5 volts when its 15!.
17:34 Electricguy did you have to prode on 1/10?
17:34 DeKemp got an x10 switch on the scope but that only effects the timebase
17:34 deadferret joined #thegeekgroup
17:35 DeKemp i think it only has 10:1
17:35 Electricguy oki
17:35 Electricguy hmmm..
17:35 Electricguy well.. it may be a problem..
17:35 Electricguy again check the caps inside
17:35 DeKemp :P
17:35 Electricguy especially on those old half digital scopes..
17:35 DeKemp it's always the caps
17:36 SparkyProjects DeKemp: Get a battery of a known voltage (measured with a meter) and see if the scale agrees
17:36 SparkyProjects It depends on what the squarewave actually is, is it 3V paek-to-peak, or is it 3v from 0 top, and 3v frop 0 to bottom (so 6V peak to peak), comparing with a battery should answer this
17:36 BotSteve sparkyprojects: I have the following messages for you:
17:36 BotSteve At 08:13Z, Cprossu asked me to tell sparkyprojects yeah the iris on cam 9 was funky ;)
17:36 DeKemp got a powerspuly
17:36 SparkyProjects As long as you know the voltage, a psu will do fine
17:37 SparkyProjects But once you find out what it's supposed to be, calibrate using the scope cal output
17:37 DeKemp :)
17:37 DeKemp also ajust the gain of each channel?
17:38 SparkyProjects Whatever the manual suggests
17:38 SparkyProjects Been a long time since i used a scope
17:39 DeKemp i love the manual
17:39 DeKemp it has the complete schematic in it

17:44 DeKemp could be whorse http://www.mikrocontroller.net/attachment/5664/PICT0235.JPG  lalw
17:45 Monkeh DeKemp: The probe will say if it's an x1 or x10 probe.
17:46 Monkeh You'll need some external tools to properly calibrate a scope. Like a calibrated function generator.
17:50 DeKemp to bad one ic is missing on channel 4
17:50 DeKemp of the vertical amplifier
17:51 Monkeh You can probably get a replacement
17:51 DeKemp they are philips customs
17:52 Monkeh Ah.
17:52 Monkeh See, I like my scope
17:52 Monkeh There are no silly custom ICs.
17:53 Monkeh Actually, I haven't even seen a DIP package yet.
17:53 Monkeh Old fashioned.
17:53 Monkeh And now I hate myself.
17:53 Monkeh I just said dual inline package package.

17:54 BitViper no wannabe1987, it is NOT a bitviper, just looks and smells like one
17:55 wannabe1987 ah.  ok good.
17:55 wannabe1987 maybe its a microchip :P
17:55 BitViper =P
17:55 BitViper is a soreviper
17:55 DeKemp ah, it was the intermediate amplifier
17:55 wannabe1987 n ot my fault he's a sore viper!
17:55 BitViper and tiredviper, and dustyviper
17:55 wannabe1987 i giveth you a bed!
17:55 BitViper nope, not beds fault

17:56 wannabe1987 but you get real bed tonight, thanks to Cprossu going home
17:56 wannabe1987 wonder if Cprossu made it on his flight...
17:56 Monkeh I'm sure we would've heard if he didn't
17:57 wannabe1987 lol it was at 1:35, its 1:55, so yeah...
18:00 wannabe1987 BitViper: can we go to the store tonight or tomorrow?
18:02 BitViper tonight would be good
18:05 Carvagon lol is she making u carry stuff in bitviper?
18:05 BitViper no, probably will carry it in bags :P

18:24 Carvagon nothin like rob zombie and skrillex
18:34 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Using two similar 12V transformers to obtain 24V with a center tap. How bad an idea?
18:37 SparkyProjects That would work, you may only have issues if one end of one transformer was ground, as the insulation of the second transformer meaniing that it would give 24v to frame, but unnlikely to cause problems irl
18:37 SparkyProjects With centre tapped you will be ok
18:37 Monkeh Not planning for any ground connection here.
18:38 Monkeh Real ground, that is
18:39 Monkeh I may end up using 12V off one transformer to handle some low power stuff though
18:39 SparkyProjects Then there's no problem
18:39 SparkyProjects Only other consideration if the transformers have different current rasatings is that the lowest rated one should be rated for the mac load
18:39 Monkeh SparkyProjects: They'll both be taken from 12VDC 1A wall warts. So 12VA or 15VA rating. No problem there.
18:39 SparkyProjects *max
18:40 SparkyProjects Are they transformer wallwarts or electronic ?
18:40 Monkeh Just looking for my other spare wart to crack open for another transformer.. two little ones is a hell of a lot cheaper (and smaller, height wise) than trawling ebay.
18:40 Monkeh Transformer, I know the difference. ;)
18:40 Monkeh One cracks toes, one bounces. :)
18:41 SparkyProjects I'm sure you do :)
18:41 Monkeh I've only ever had two 12VDC SMPSU warts
18:41 Monkeh One wasn't actually a wart, which I liked.
18:42 SparkyProjects You mean a desk wart :P
18:42 Monkeh Floor wart
18:42 SparkyProjects :D
18:42 Monkeh And it was actually tiny, iPhone charger sized
18:42 Monkeh And remained cool to the touch even under load.
18:43 Monkeh Really well designed
18:43 Monkeh Sold it with the AP it came with to a friend
18:44 Monkeh Just wanted to check I wasn't going to run into any weird issues using transformers like this.
18:46 SparkyProjects In old equipmet (especially valve stuff) they often used a couple of transformers for the supply, i suppose it was cheaper to get 'off the shelf' ones than to custom manufacture
18:46 SparkyProjects And often one point of each trnas winding was connected together
18:46 SparkyProjects So you may get a HT trans and a heater/low voltage trans
18:50 * Experimentonomen installed buildcraft and started playing with a quarry
18:53 Sasha__ joined #thegeekgroup
18:53 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Yeah, larger centre-tapped trannies seem unusually hard to find.
18:54 Monkeh Really small stuff, like 6VA and 9VA for basically panel lights and buttons, easy, but anything with oompf seems to be a custom order job

18:57 DeKemp ...
18:57 DeKemp i know its a beta, but come one.
18:57 Monkeh It's a beta which includes reverse engineered drivers for closed hardware
18:58 Monkeh On a platform which has lots of very annoying bugs and completely missing pieces.
18:58 DeKemp some picures are fine
18:58 DeKemp but the otherhalf are this crap
18:58 Monkeh Then there's a bug in the camera driver somewhere
18:59 DeKemp strangthing is the preview is not screwed
18:59 DeKemp on my pc
18:59 Monkeh Hm
18:59 Monkeh Could be the jpg codec glitching then, or some sort of corruption during write.
19:09 SparkyProjects Centre tapped transformers are normally made for the cheaper market so manufacrurers can use just 2 diodes for rectification instead of a bridge
19:10 Experimentonomen and in split supply stuff
19:10 Monkeh Nail, meet Experimentonomen.

19:49 wannabe1987 yeah, pretty much, banana
19:49 Electricguy what are you testing, katemonster? :P

19:50 Electricguy if it's the client quit function.. i can say it works really well :)
19:50 Electricguy ahh, i see

19:50 Monkeh Katemonster: Chatzilla doesn't auth automatically?
19:50 Katemonster what, with nickserv?
19:50 Monkeh I assume that's what you're testing. :P
19:50 Katemonster no
19:51 Katemonster i've never had a problem with that one
19:51 Electricguy Irssi is pretty tricky to get to auto identify with nickserv and that..
19:51 Electricguy but surely doable.. :P
19:51 Katemonster it doesn't automatically do that, i had to put 'msg nickserv' into the startup list, but that's always worked well
19:51 Monkeh Electricguy: It.. is?
19:52 Katemonster i was trying to automatically op myself in a channel with chanserv but it sends the command before i've joined the channel
19:52 Katemonster and chanserv told me to fuck off because i'm not in the room
19:52 Monkeh Katemonster: Another option is to enter your username and password (delimited with a colon) as the server password.
19:52 Electricguy Monkeh, yepp.. for a person thats a total noob with it, it's indeed pretty tricky
19:52 Monkeh (or is that for my bouncer, and it's just the nickserv pass?)
19:53 Monkeh Electricguy: You're aware there's a million ready to go configs and scripts available via this 'google' tool?

19:55 Electricguy it highly depends on what you want to do with it
19:56 * lwq1996 licks his finger. want it now?!?!?!?!
19:56 Electricguy i made a program in QBasic once to clock my relay based 4 bit binary counter. it worked perfectly.. no need for a dual core rig with fancy software..
19:57 Katemonster the first computer I ever built was a 66MHz Socket 4 Pentium running MS-DOS 7.1
19:57 Katemonster i was very proud of myself.
19:57 Katemonster ......that was in 2005.
19:57 Katemonster >.>
19:57 lwq1996 you know what i want to make. one of those propelor clocks
19:57 Electricguy winnar :D
19:58 Katemonster it had no chassis.  it was all on a piece of plywood with case-ground being formed with the use of automotive wire
19:59 Electricguy lol! awesome XD
19:59 Electricguy i ned to try out MS-DOS 7.1!
20:00 Electricguy hmmm.. CD install huh?
20:00 Electricguy EGG WANT FLOPPY!
20:01 injektion I need a USB floppy drive
20:01 Electricguy yeah i kinda want one too..
20:01 Experimentonomen technically the floppy was the 5-1/4" size and up, the 3.5" one is more of a rigid :P
20:01 Electronics I'd just plug one into my motherboard if I needed one.
20:01 Experimentonomen a rigid disk
20:02 Electricguy i have solved that problem by sharing a floppy drive from an old machine on my network instead. lol. it works just fine :P
20:02 Electronics I wonder if I could get a 5 1/4 to work with it...
20:02 Electricguy with some tinkering perhaps
20:02 Katemonster i didn't use the CD install of 7.1.  it didn't feel authentic
20:02 Electricguy they got different size sectors
20:03 Electricguy seems hard to find a floppy install for DOS 7.1 :/
20:03 lwq1996 metallica for the win!!!!!
20:03 Katemonster it's a two 3.5" disks.  i'm almost positive i have a copy of the disk making programs if you want
20:04 Katemonster i'd have to dig for them
20:04 Electricguy ooh that would be awesome! :D
20:04 Electricguy but.. 2? DOS 5.0 use 3 disks..
20:04 Electronics somewhere I've got a 17 floppy install for something....
20:04 Katemonster lol
20:04 Electricguy i got Win95 on floppies
20:04 Electricguy 13.. :P
20:04 Electronics I remember trying to install it
20:04 Experimentonomen Electronics, windows 3.1 ?
20:04 Electronics possibly
20:04 egrsteve hmm, this is interesting
20:04 Electronics and it crapped out on the penultimate one >:(
20:04 Katemonster i gotta go do some stuff in the workshop.  i'll bbl
20:04 Electricguy 3.1 is 4 disks if i remember correctly
20:05 Electricguy Win98 is somewhere around 20
20:05 Electronics possibly win95
20:05 egrsteve I am managing GV wifi from the parking lot
20:05 Katemonster hopefully when i get back someone will be able to tell me about installing Debian on a WRT54G  :P
20:05 Experimentonomen win 3.11 is 10 disks
20:05 egrsteve debian?
20:05 egrsteve why not openwrt
20:05 Electricguy 10? o_O
20:06 Electricguy more like 8
20:06 Electricguy win 1.1 got 4.. or 6.. can't remember :P
20:07 Experimentonomen im pretty sure it was windows 3.11 and 10 disks, i remember sitting at uncles as a kid copying them
20:07 Monkeh egrsteve: Impressive.
20:08 lwq1996 joined #thegeekgroup
20:08 Electricguy the remaining 2 may have been some supplemental stuff
20:08 egrsteve I need to install a wrt54g in my car with some high gain antennas
20:08 Monkeh egrsteve: WRTs are getting a little long in the tooth.
20:09 egrsteve I have a 4v on the shelf
20:09 egrsteve I know but I have one
20:09 Monkeh egrsteve: Anyway, I'd use an S or G-TM for wardriving. More RAM and flash.
20:09 egrsteve and it has removable antennas
20:11 egrsteve hmm, make a 2.4 ghz yagi for wifi
20:11 Experimentonomen joined #thegeekgroup
20:11 lwq1996 ::note to self:: DONT SMACK COMPUTER SO HARD IT SHUTS OFF
20:11 Monkeh egrsteve: Naaah, wokfi.
20:11 DeKemp can someone driver over the guy who inventend MS word with a big rig :P
20:11 Electricguy lwq1996, note to you. don't smack the computer at all. it did nothing you didn't tell it to do
20:11 DeKemp word is rediclous
20:12 Monkeh Electricguy: Not true when Windows is involved.
20:12 egrsteve the wokfi is nice but wind loading is a problem
20:12 Monkeh egrsteve: CNC machine. Sorted.
20:12 Monkeh :)
20:12 egrsteve maybe just a good collinear
20:12 Electricguy Monkeh, well, it's up to you to disable the automatic stuff if you don't like it. if you didn't, it's your own fault.. :P
20:12 lwq1996 Electricguy. EXACTLY i told it to do something. it owulnt
20:13 Monkeh You can't disable all the crap it wants to do.
20:13 Monkeh It is, unfortunately, retarded by design
20:13 Electricguy ALL computers are retarded
20:13 Katemonster oh score
20:13 Electricguy it even has to have a clock oscillator to tell it to live! -,-
20:14 Katemonster i was just given two WRT54Gs and a matching cable modem  :3
20:14 * Katemonster likes free stuff
20:14 Electricguy oh nice :P
20:14 Electricguy yeah free stuff is always fun :D
20:14 Monkeh Katemonster: Versions. NOW!
20:14 DeKemp i hop not v7
20:14 egrsteve hopefully 4 or earlier
20:14 DeKemp v7 is a epensive brick
20:15 Katemonster v3.1 and v5
20:15 DeKemp wrt54gl ftw
20:15 egrsteve 3.1 isn't bad 5 lacks ram if I remember right
20:16 Monkeh 3.1's fine
20:16 Monkeh 5 is a cripple
20:16 Katemonster damn
20:16 Monkeh 2MB flash, nearly useless
20:16 Electricguy but i suppose they work just fine for what they are intended to do.. :P
20:16 Monkeh Not really
20:16 DeKemp they are intended to flashed to dd-wrt
20:17 DeKemp or tomato
20:17 Monkeh God, no, not DD.
20:17 DeKemp ah
20:17 DeKemp *oh
20:17 Electricguy then you kinda start to wonder how the heck they could release it at all to the consumer market...
20:17 DeKemp why
20:17 Monkeh Electricguy: There are lots of things which don't work being sold.
20:17 Monkeh DeKemp: Because it's ancient and buggy.
20:17 DeKemp ah
20:17 Electricguy it's called China.. :D
20:17 Monkeh DeKemp: And eventually falls over and dies because it doesn't clean up after itself.
20:17 Katemonster well at least for the time being i think i found something less obnoxious than my linksys 24 port hub
20:17 DeKemp lolw
20:18 DeKemp also TP-link ftw
20:18 DeKemp cheap and good
20:18 Monkeh Yeah, TP-Link's non-ADSL hardware isn't too bad for the price
20:18 Electricguy TP-Link == half decent cheap stuff.. :P
20:18 Electricguy it's like a Volvo.. it works.. but it doesn't make you happy :P
20:18 Monkeh Hell, their stock firmware is the only firmware I've ever found I'd actually consider using.
20:19 Monkeh Volvo's make normal people happy.
20:19 Electricguy yeah.. poor fellas..
20:19 egrsteve grr hunk of cottonwood caught in an eddy current between me and my laptop
20:19 DeKemp depens on where you're from
20:19 Monkeh I know, they just want a car which does what a car is designed to do
20:19 Katemonster this is not a piece of networking hardware, it is a bludgeoning weapon:  http://www.amazon.com/Cisco-Linksys-EFAH24-EtherFast-Auto-Sensing-24-Port/dp/B00003006L

20:20 DeKemp http://www.voordeelverpakking.nl/opendir/DSC_1099.JPG sorry i smack your 24 ports
20:20 Monkeh Katemonster: It's an ordinary rack-mount switch.
20:20 Katemonster it's overkill for hooking two computers together.
20:20 Monkeh DeKemp: And that's only what, 4U? Pussy. :)
20:20 Electricguy i had a 3U 10Mbit hub a while back..
20:20 Electricguy what a damn brick.. XD
20:20 Electricguy 24 slotter
20:21 DeKemp lol
20:21 Monkeh Sgt_Lemming: Come introduce people to fully-loaded bladeservers.
20:21 Katemonster i'm just amused that it's built like a f'ing tank
20:21 Electricguy it's nice :P
20:21 Monkeh Real hardware is :)
20:21 DeKemp http://ic.tweakimg.net/ext/i/1153790262.jpg this wil do the trick
20:21 Monkeh It's always a pleasure to get to use proper kit instead of consumer stuff
20:21 Katemonster LOL
20:22 Electricguy i got a 16 slot rack switch in my room.. :P
20:22 Katemonster well, it is proper kit.  from 1998.
20:22 Electricguy also pretty overkill for hooking 2 compters and a server together.. :P
20:22 DeKemp http://ic.tweakimg.net/ext/i/imagenormal/1280493613.png this will do then
20:22 Monkeh Awww, the cute Foundry.
20:22 Electricguy but, it was free from a dupster.. :P
20:22 DeKemp for 1000 users
20:22 Electricguy not even scratchy.. just a little dusty. lol
20:22 * Monkeh has a Foundry in his cupboard
20:23 Katemonster i got to be fairly good friends with the IT guy at my highschool and was *invited* to go dumpster diving through the school's old computer stuff
20:23 Katemonster that's where that hub came from
20:23 Electricguy lol nice :D
20:24 Katemonster also my enormous stack of 486s
20:24 Electricguy awesome! :3

20:24 Electricguy in school, my teacher asked me if i could help him with some stuff.. as a reward i got to dig through the non scrap computer parts room :P
20:24 Electricguy was always fun :D
20:25 * Experimentonomen listens to a GBA video game soundtrack quite loud
20:26 Katemonster since our school was too cheap/poor to hire a proper IT staff, they had this thing last period called Computer Technology class.  that basically meant they rounded up all the nerdiest kids in school and made them maintain all the computers and the network and the school website
20:26 Electricguy lulz XD
20:27 Monkeh That's actually a pretty good idea.
20:27 Monkeh Hands-on experience
20:27 Katemonster when we got a bunch of PIIIs donated by the local community college, my official job was to scrap all the old computers and dispose of them.  most of them just ended up in the back of my pickup truck  XD
20:27 Electricguy LOL XD
20:28 Electricguy i had a lot of old computer junk a while back.. got rid of most of it.. :P
20:28 Katemonster i have a board with a surface-mounted 40MHz Cyrix 386
20:28 Electricguy hehe nice :P
20:28 Katemonster last time i check it was still holding correct time and date.  that was a few years ago though
20:29 Electricguy cool
20:29 Electricguy i had a small pentium based machine a while back
20:29 Electricguy a HTPC before there were HTPC's :P
20:29 Electricguy looked like a cable tv decoder..
20:29 Electricguy had a IR keyboard and mouse
20:29 Electricguy and a SCART plug in the back
20:30 Electricguy ran something like WinCE from a ISA SSD
20:30 Katemonster ......
20:30 Katemonster there is an albino peahen sitting outside my window staring at me
20:30 Electricguy stealth spy robot..
20:30 Katemonster lol
20:31 Electricguy not so very stealth though as it's clearly visible..
20:31 Electricguy a minor design flaw
20:31 Experimentonomen Electricguy, lemme guess, its purpose was similar to that of those datavideo player thingies u have
20:31 Katemonster it would be stealth in the snow.  peafowl don't like the snow though
20:31 Electricguy Experimentonomen, actually no, it was meant to surf the net on the TV.. :P
20:31 Electricguy in the 90's :D
20:32 Electricguy kate, lol :D
20:32 Experimentonomen back when a tv was the only moniter available that was larger than like 12", no ?
20:32 Electricguy nah.. late 90's.. so perhaps 26" or so
20:33 Electricguy gah.. can't remember the name of it...
20:33 Electricguy it never became anything big...
20:33 Katemonster the neighbors have like 30 of the things.  they wander over to our house in the spring and lay eggs under our front porch.  then the neighbors will wonder why they have 40 of them.
20:33 Katemonster ...they started with 4
20:33 Electricguy lulz XD

20:36 Electricguy got the kb and mouse here..
20:37 Experimentonomen coal ;)
20:37 Electricguy they basically send out PS/2 via IR
20:37 Katemonster i remember a product like that for sale back then, i can't remember what it was called though
20:37 Katemonster webtv?
20:37 Katemonster something dumb like that

20:51 wannabe1987 thanks Damianz
20:52 Electricguy i had fun with one of these electric flyswatters once..

20:52 Electricguy slipped with my fingers.. and BOOM! a MOT was connected to it.. i have NO IDEA how it could happen..
20:52 Carvagon lol
20:52 Electricguy it lasted at least one fly until the wires melted..
20:52 Damianz lol
20:52 Electricguy 2kW in a flyswatter is a bit overkill.. :P

20:58 Katemonster lets do it
20:58 Electricguy YES.
20:58 Electricguy I NEED NOE.
20:58 Electricguy ONE*
20:59 Electricguy i have seriously thought of building a spud gun with steel pipes..
20:59 Electricguy to be able to shoot heavier stuff
20:59 Katemonster heh, a few of my friends in high school formed some really nice shotgun payload wads for a 2" spud gun.  they were loaded with 77 paintballs
20:59 Katemonster that
20:59 Katemonster was
20:59 Katemonster something to see
20:59 Electricguy the heaviest thing i have stuffed into a spud gun was a BIG old diode.. about 300Grams of copper.. LOL :P
21:00 Katemonster that's not called a diode, EG, that's a Rectifier  :P
21:00 Electricguy almost blew a clean hole through a 3mm thick steel wall in a shipping container.. XD

21:07 Katemonster there's a few things i just don't *like* and refuse to eat, they won't cause me physical harm but they might kill my inner child.
21:08 wannabe1987 food allergies are the only "iffy" thing for hosting people, i LOVE bread and gluten free people are iffy to cook for
21:08 Electricguy it's not a mess! it's well used space..

21:11 wannabe1987 o yes you are, Carvagon....indiana.....wahooo.....
21:11 Carvagon haha
21:11 Katemonster i'm not sure how i feel about being called exotic, but i really can't argue that i'm not  :|
21:11 Katemonster NOOOOOOOOOO DON'T HURT THE OWL

21:12 wannabe1987 :P
21:12 Katemonster hah
21:12 Electricguy we need some dude from luxembourg..
21:12 Experimentonomen i am not exitic either, just a random boring snob :P
21:12 Electricguy i'm... SWEDISH!.. thats about it.. lol
21:12 wannabe1987 thats exotic, dude
21:13 wannabe1987 somehow i have a swedish coin here....

21:13 Electricguy wannabe, put it in stomper! :P
21:13 BitViper Electricguy : we build weird here, er, i mean awsome
21:13 Electricguy lulz :P
21:13 wannabe1987 Electricguy: no, its glued to things
21:14 Electricguy oh. crap!
21:14 * Katemonster isn't willing to describe how she's exotic to anyone who doesn't already know.

21:14 Electricguy well.. there isn't much metal in them that can cause strong eddy currents anyways...
21:14 Experimentonomen <-- slusk
21:14 wannabe1987 kate, i already know :P
21:14 eadthem man i can watch at 720P without any lag
21:14 eadthem on youtube
21:14 Katemonster i'd hope so.  if you didn't, you obviously haven't been paying attention.
21:14 Electricguy congrats :)
21:15 Experimentonomen swedish coins are mostly nickel
21:15 BitViper wouldnt that make it a nickel coin ?

21:16 Electricguy yup! :)
21:16 Katemonster HAH
21:16 Electricguy i also need to pee...
21:16 Electricguy not that very exotic though...
21:16 Katemonster yeah...... i'd have to agree with that comic.
21:17 Electricguy yeh it's damn true :P
21:17 Experimentonomen i put out through my IH once
21:17 wannabe1987 no, peeing is *not* exotic
21:18 Electricguy ah, just as i thought. darn!
21:18 Electricguy THEN THAT DUDE ON THE STREET LIED TO ME!
21:18 Experimentonomen blah i give up
21:18 Electricguy bastard! >_>
21:18 Katemonster it could be, depending on how you do it.
21:18 Electricguy well, yeah..
21:18 Experimentonomen my connection have bneeded a reconnect like ever 10 minutes since around 9:30 PM so im gonna shut down and goto bed

21:19 Experimentonomen nite peepz
21:19 Electricguy night exp! :P
21:19 Katemonster if you for some reason have to urinate from your eye socket, i'd call that exotic.  also don't look at me like that.

21:31 Electricguy hehehe okey :P
21:31 Chipguy these were stressful days
21:31 Electricguy yeah.. moving that much stuff in short time is very exhausting
21:31 Chipguy and it was not as easy as i expected
21:31 Chipguy its actually not that much
21:31 Electricguy hehe it never is :P
21:32 Electricguy ah oki

21:35 Electricguy lol, i NEED to see if you are.. :D
21:36 Chipguy lol
21:36 Katemonster fine, i haven't really done anything with it yet though.  i'm doing a lot of reading on it right now.
21:36 lwq1996 lol. you will tend to pick up cool tips and tricks along the way
21:37 Electricguy my neck hurts today.. o_O
21:38 Electricguy i must have been seeping like a chunk of canned meat or something..
21:38 Electricguy sleeping*
21:40 Katemonster i certainly hope you're not seeping.
21:40 Katemonster gross.
21:40 Electricguy hmmm.. i need to google that.. :P
21:40 Electricguy HAHAHA! XD
21:43 Electricguy i want my damn Arduino Nano, DHT11 sensor and protoboards...
21:44 lwq1996 im getting an stm32 dev board
21:44 Electricguy oki
21:44 lwq1996 idk what language it takes, but oh well ill learn

22:21 Katemonster as of the current stable release Debian no longer supports the Alpha 64 bit CPU architecture :(
22:21 Katemonster the previous stable release does though.
22:22 * lwq1996 sigh
22:22 Katemonster the Alpha-owning community is not happy about this at all.
22:22 lwq1996 i think its time to update to the newest ubuntu

22:33 wannabe1987 nope
22:33 wannabe1987 Damianz....
22:33 lwq1996 you going to be there for hhr?
22:33 wannabe1987 maybe
22:33 Monkeh Damianz: Not with stupidly fat people it's not.
22:33 wannabe1987 i don't like being there for hhr - too many people trying to get airtime....
22:33 lwq1996 i have not said a swear word today!!!!! O.O
22:33 wannabe1987 fuck.  that sucks
22:34 wannabe1987 :P
22:34 DeKemp dat is inderdaad zeer vervelend ja
22:34 DeKemp :D
22:34 wannabe1987 ..
22:34 SparkyProjects Momkeh, That's cool, at least you got the phasing right
22:35 wannabe1987 that is indeed.....i can't read dutch :P
22:35 Monkeh SparkyProjects: And if I got it wrong?
22:35 wannabe1987 well, DeKemp, i got part right....
22:36 DeKemp you got 1
22:36 SparkyProjects You wouldn't get any voltage between the ends
22:36 DeKemp or 2
22:36 wannabe1987 i figured the rest out via google translate
22:36 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Oh, okay.
22:36 DeKemp :P
22:36 Monkeh I guess following the original plugs worked, then. ;)
22:36 DeKemp but it wasnt swearing
22:36 Monkeh Now I've got to figure out how to secure these in the enclosure.
22:37 SparkyProjects Hotglue ?
22:37 Monkeh .. actually, first I need to find out if my heatsink can tolerate 15-20W of waste heat without things melting
22:37 Monkeh If it can't, I'll need a new case.
22:38 SparkyProjects If you have a 20w soldering iron, you could try heating the heatsink
22:38 lwq1996 Seroster: YOU ARE FUCKED UP
22:39 DeKemp be nice
22:39 Monkeh SparkyProjects: Actually, once I get a thermocouple, I'm just going to put my dummy load on the heatsink.
22:39 lwq1996 you should see what his comment was on my status
22:39 Monkeh Because I can supply 150W to that :)
22:39 Ycarene_ Anyone have a recommendation on what to use as "internet cafe" software?
22:40 DeKemp as a host?
22:40 Monkeh I salvaged one of these: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41B6BS8CX2L._SL500_AA300_.jpg
22:40 Ycarene_ Yes, a friend of mine is running a store with computers and he sells time on them, but he's relying on the honor system at the moment.
22:40 Monkeh I think it should suffice, if I have to bolt a fan to it so be it
22:43 Ycarene_ I told him I'd help him find something where he could manage the time on the clients from a central location, but I'm having trouble trusting much of what I do find.
22:43 Monkeh SparkyProjects: If I didn't mention, I'm basically implementing an HP/Agilent supply with less current using as many parts I already have as possible.
22:43 Monkeh Thankfully, it's all off the shelf stuff.
22:44 Monkeh 7812/7912, LF411, LF442, couple of power transistors..
22:45 Monkeh Hmm, big filter cap's going to be a pain I think.
22:49 FunkEngine I should just send these big ol hockey puck SCRs in to Viewer Mail.  Had em for at least 9 years, got them for dirt cheap, just couldn't use them because they don't work well when not being squeezed under about 1800lbs of pressure...
22:49 Katemonster monkeh

23:03 tonsofpcs FunkEngine: SCRs that require a ton of pressure? how so?
23:04 FunkEngine tonsofpcs: let me find the datasheets.  They're hockey puck style, the heatsink compresses them.
23:06 DeKemp '' handle silicone grease with care. Avoid getting silcone grease in the eyes''  doh

23:11 tonsofpcs wannabe1987: (A)(1) brown gound beef (2) mix in packet of chili spices (3) and the tomato paste and other things the package tells you to
23:11 tonsofpcs (B)(1) Make mac'n'cheese per box but keep some milk out to keep the sauce a bit thick (C) (1)mix A & B (2) add remaining milk (and perhaps a bit more) while continuing to stir.  (E) Serve in buns.  Makes: a lot. of servings
23:11 tonsofpcs :D
23:11 Hackbat I'm loving the fuck out of this job though
23:11 FunkEngine Here's the datasheet, it doesn't list the pressure needed, but what do you expect from NTE?  The units I have are Phillips.  And I just looked up how much they "retail" for and I might just hang on to them till I wind up out at the labs in about 14 months or less...
23:11 FunkEngine http://www.nteinc.com/specs/5500to5599/pdf/nte5594_6_61.pdf
23:11 Hackbat I'm working in a salvage food store
23:11 wannabe-afk yeah, i'm pretty sure zozo wo'nt go for that....but sounds good!
23:11 wannabe-afk lets not talk food, i'm *really* hungry right now
23:11 FunkEngine They've got some delicious pulse ratings. :3
23:12 tonsofpcs me too....
23:12 Hackbat so I get perfectly goos food for suoer cheap tax free
23:12 tonsofpcs FunkEngine: I don't understand wwhy it would need pressure
23:12 wannabe-afk but tons, i can't eat righ tnow, i'm in class
23:12 Hackbat got some pasta salad mix for half off
23:13 tonsofpcs I can.  I have leftover papa johns from finally using my free pizza from the superbowl thing.  :D
23:14 FunkEngine The paper data sheet that came in one of the boxes, which I have unfortunately misplaced between 2001 and now, listed minimum pressures for certain applications.  Its an SCR, so it does have an imperfect transition, and thus it dissapates some pretty big load as heat.
23:15 wannabe1987 ah poo to you
23:15 FunkEngine I was going to use them in a coil gun/HDD platter launcher that didn't pan out. (Ahh, the foibles of being young...)
23:16 einball uhm
23:16 einball fieldtrip sucks
23:17 tonsofpcs I have SCRs all over the place in various devices... some are in the open, some are inside a sealed box that you can't really open so I suppose the latter might be under pressure...
23:17 FunkEngine This is the size of a hockey puck, and about 5lbs.
23:17 tonsofpcs sounds about 2x the size of the ones we use for surge arrestors
23:18 egrsteve funk has a large SCR, I have used small ones (50A) that just mount to a heatsink to opto triacs rated .5A (which are related to SCRS)
23:18 FunkEngine Yeah, I'm pretty sure these were used in some form of large motor speed controller or the like.
23:18 FunkEngine I have a _pair_ of large SCRs.  Everything's better in pairs!
23:19 FunkEngine lemme throw a pic up.
23:21 FunkEngine oh god this is a terrible picture, but I'm not spending 10 minutes to go pull them out of storage... http://www.kittenshateyou.com/tgg/DCP_2998.JPG
23:21 DeKemp thats small :P
23:22 FunkEngine Still it'll handle ~1200A RMS.
23:22 DeKemp you should see them of a 4Megawatt powersuply of a induction furnace :P
23:22 FunkEngine which is nothing to sneeze at, when you consider their pulse rating is somewhere above 5 million Amperes.
23:23 DeKemp always fun, controling 4 megawats with a 10 turn pot :D
23:23 FunkEngine Sadly the iron foundry I (very breifly) worked in used the good old carbon rod arc furnace.
23:23 tonsofpcs that's the size of a hockey puck?
23:23 FunkEngine the measurements are on the datasheet.
23:24 DeKemp i belive it was 400hz 2000v at 2000 amps or there about
23:24 FunkEngine ok so maybe its a teeny bit smaller (2.9" diameter) than a hockey puck...  I'm from PA, we don't do the hockey thing. :)

23:25 lwq1996 hey FunkEngine im in pa!
23:26 FunkEngine Chris seriously needs to think about building/acquiring dorms.  I'm sure I'm not the only one that would pick up and emigrate to the labs if we didn't have to worry about having to support our living costs from day one.  Hell I'd occupy the labs full time.
23:26 FunkEngine lwq1996: Lebanon county here, you?
23:26 tonsofpcs comcast territory... so north-central?
23:26 tonsofpcs or philly area?
23:26 lwq1996 cambria/clearfield county. city?
23:26 tonsofpcs FunkEngine: I believe that's been discussed....
23:27 tonsofpcs hence the geek housen.
23:27 FunkEngine Myerstown (just outside of Lebanon.)
23:27 lwq1996 ive hear of that place. never been there though. im in irvona, between clearfield and altoona
23:27 DeKemp http://www.coilco.co.uk/Coilco_2/IN_HOUSE_REPAIRS/IMAG002.JPG   small inductor :P
23:28 FunkEngine Yeah, but the geek houses are for staff.  I don't think chris would hire me from this far away.  Although my elevator pitch involves asking him "How many times do you wish you had a clone of Engineer Steve?  I am an acceptable substitute for the real thing in at least 93% of possible scenarios."
23:29 lwq1996 FunkEngine: actually gh5 is for people that are going to be comming to the lab and need a place to stay i believe
23:30 egrsteve are you?
23:30 FunkEngine lwq1996: Hmm, I'll have to poke the forums regarding that.  My current 14 month plan is to work shit jobs to the point of exhaustion and sock away a few grand for the first 12 months, then start searching for outside employment in the grand rapids area during the final 2 months.

23:35 FunkEngine I joke with people that if its Belden 5e solid cable, I can wire it up in the dark.  I can tell the color of the pairs by the twist density, and i can practically taste which ones are more white than color.

23:35 lwq1996 lol
23:35 wannabe-afk funkengine: there is a school nearby boden wants to buy
23:36 FunkEngine wannabe-afk: Yeah I heard mention of that and got semi-excited at the prospect.
23:36 lwq1996 there is a good sized building like 30miles away that i want to rent
23:36 FunkEngine I've been living on less than $150/month after rent/utilities are paid, I'm sure I could manage full time at the labs on a joke of a "paycheck".
23:37 wannabe-afk this internet sucks
23:37 wannabe-afk turn into dorms for geeks
23:37 tonsofpcs I should apply for a job in GR or Lansing and visit more often...
23:37 wannabe-afk tonsofpcs: yes
23:37 tonsofpcs FunkEngine: well, could rent half the building (furnished) to students during the (college) school year and offer them up for housing for visiting/renting the rest of the time
23:38 tonsofpcs and have the rest of the building be full-time rent
23:38 wannabe-afk i can also *host* you while you (funkengine) look for work here, or come hav ejob interview
23:39 FunkEngine egrsteve: Here's a thought I had today after the redbull video.  Pass it on to somebody.  I want to see what it does to water.  Exp. A could be a 5 gallon bucket with say 3 gallons of hosewater in it.  Exp. B would be a 4" or 6" PVC pipe with caps attached, split down the length to form a trough, with the electrodes at each end.
23:40 FunkEngine I know I had some fun results with water and my tiny, baby cap bank years ago. :)

23:40 wannabe-afk 20 more minutes will i survive?
23:40 egrsteve that is an ineresting thought salt water?
23:41 egrsteve an electrolyte that will not release chlorine gas
23:41 FunkEngine I'd only go to salt water if tapwater doesn't work.  Generally speaking though there's enough minerals present for 1800v to go to town on.
23:41 egrsteve that is true
23:42 FunkEngine and Ozonators for pool use need like 5lb/1000 gallons to generate enough chlorine, so I doubt 100g in 5 gallons would do much more.  And for the first time in forever the HV lab will smell like an indoor pool again.
23:43 egrsteve no it does already they cleaned up with bleach the other day
23:44 FunkEngine I'm still trying to think of an electrolyte that won't make nasty gasses.  Thought about copper sulfate, but there's a distinct possibility of sulfur dioxide there...
23:45 egrsteve the problem is most easy to get ones are chloride based
23:45 FunkEngine Basically as I understand it, under the kind of conditions Thumper can produce, you're actually going to disassociate the H2O into H2 and O/O2 very, very rapidly between the electrodes, and then the gasses ionize and form a plasma, causing further disassociation and when there isn't enough current left to maintain the plasma you get a small hydrodgen explosion.
23:46 egrsteve that could happen too
23:47 egrsteve so we need or platinum electrodes then too
23:47 FunkEngine You guys wouldn't happen to have a gasometer somewhere in the Lab?  Run a test in a plastic cup, and sniff the air and see if there's chlorine etc.
23:48 FunkEngine Why platinum?  I'd go with carbon electrodes for arc-gouging.
23:49 FunkEngine I still think that city water from Grand Rapids is going to have enough hardness in it.  Slap a megger on the test setup and see what it says as far as leakage.
23:49 egrsteve we do have a couple but I don't know what they detect
23:49 egrsteve hmm, GR water does have floride
23:49 FunkEngine at like 0.000002% mass
23:49 egrsteve so?
23:49 egrsteve it's an ion
23:50 egrsteve at that voltage it only needs a little bit to start spliting other stuff
23:50 FunkEngine Fluorine is also very, very, very angry.  It would recombine instantly. :)
23:50 FunkEngine Oh, thought you meant hazards.
23:50 FunkEngine Yes it will contribute to the conductivity.  I was saying more along the lines of calcium though.
23:51 egrsteve that too
23:51 egrsteve but hazards are an issue too
23:51 FunkEngine wannabe-afk: Before I forget, I'll keep you in mind for your offer of a couch to crash on.  I do plan to visit the labs before pulling up shop and moving. :)
23:51 wannabe-afk sweet
23:52 wannabe-afk i charge much less than any hotel :)
23:53 FunkEngine I'm pretty easy to please.  Darkness and airconditioning in the summer and I can sleep pretty much anywhere (I currently live like 250 yards from a 3-track conrail grade crossing.)
23:53 wannabe-afk i charge whatever you can afford, i am near a rail road
23:53 wannabe-afk hahaha what's A/C?
23:53 wannabe-afk our current place doesn't have any, however our new place might, dunno, we haven't found one yet :/
23:53 egrsteve it's a fan with a wet towel over it
23:53 wannabe-afk ahhhh we do have fans
23:53 FunkEngine Well, here in PA we have this thing called Humidity.  It kills me to try and sleep. :3
23:54 wannabe-afk we do too...
23:54 egrsteve but that doesn't work when it's humid
23:54 FunkEngine yeah, as far as I can tell, Michigan is basically Pennsylvania with less mountains and slightly more frequent tornadoes.
23:54 egrsteve swamp coolers good for hot and dry like arazona
23:55 egrsteve only slightly
23:55 FunkEngine wannabe-afk: You should set up a halfway house / immigration buearu for incoming geeks. :)
23:55 wannabe-afk mountains?
23:55 wannabe-afk what are those
23:55 FunkEngine Exactly.
23:55 egrsteve and possibly better beaches
23:55 wannabe-afk i'm trying!  i need funding tho, FunkEngine
23:55 wannabe-afk yay beaches!
23:55 wannabe-afk we have more lakes......even more great lakes :D
23:55 egrsteve and 100% less salt
23:56 wannabe-afk :nods:
23:56 FunkEngine and less pollution than Erie.
23:56 wannabe-afk <3 michigan, most of the time
23:56 egrsteve michigan is a unique place
23:56 lwq1996 4min away :P
23:56 egrsteve from where?
23:57 egrsteve time to migrate to the lab and get food on the way
23:57 wannabe-afk alright.  see ya steve
23:57 FunkEngine egrsteve: Here's a quick peek at my "credentials" if you will... http://www.funkengine.net/network/
23:58 BotSteve Title: Index of /network
23:58 wannabe-afk anyone who wants to stay has to fill out an "application" of basic info.
23:58 wannabe-afk but yeah....
23:58 egrsteve green tea?
23:58 wannabe-afk its more for formalities sake
23:59 FunkEngine No actually that's a box of chicken bullion that I have no clue why it was there at the time.  I blame the room-mate at the time.
23:59 egrsteve ok time for food, cheap food or toxic cheap food
23:59 FunkEngine I'm an Earl Grey guy myself.
23:59 * wannabe-afk sees a spork
23:59 deadferret aplli ation for what
23:59 FunkEngine wannabe-afk 100-base-spork, yes.
