14:26 einball ^^
14:26 HighMan :P
14:30 * einball is bored
14:49 Electricguy yay! now i got a 10 meter black CAT6 cable :)
14:50 einball << 100m CAT7
14:50 einball o_O
14:50 einball :P:P
14:51 Null_Route What's the propagation delay on a 100m cable?
14:51 Electricguy what is the point of a 100Meter CAT7 in a PAN?
14:51 Null_Route Simulating packet loss? :-)
14:52 Electricguy yeah thats the only possible use of it
14:52 Null_Route This is SOOO friggin confusing, cause I'm also in a Networking IRC char
14:52 Null_Route chat*
14:52 Null_Route ...and thought this was asked there .
14:52 einball I wanna wire up our flat, but I haven't done it yet
14:52 Null_Route Wifi?
14:53 einball Wifi is slow, sucks, insecure, pollutes the spectrum
14:53 einball "for the love to the signal"
14:53 Null_Route doesn't pollute any more than your microwave
14:53 Null_Route Slow? Dual-Band is NOT slow
14:54 Null_Route Insecure? Depends.
14:54 Null_Route Sucks? Not in a vacuume.
14:54 Electricguy there is still no point of a 100meter long ethernet cable in a PAN...
14:54 Electricguy modern wifi for laptops is very stable
14:54 einball You can't talk about "fast Wifi" and "doesn't pollute more than your microwave" :-)
14:55 Null_Route ?
14:55 Electricguy i run a netbook as a gateway to my room. it got an uptime of almost 2 years. the network have gone down 3 times. and that was due to modem updates
14:55 Electricguy and it doesn't matter that the wifi to our modem is only 56Mbit/s.. cause we got a 6Mbit/line in
14:56 Electricguy and i got my server in my room via cable.. :)
14:56 einball a microwave emits a stron signal
14:56 Null_Route A microwave oven works by passing non-ionizing microwave radiation, usually at a frequency of 2.45 gigahertz
14:56 Electricguy it sure does
14:56 einball but only within a very very small band
14:56 Null_Route which is JUST aroung 802.11g
14:56 Electricguy if you run a magnetron open you'll most likely kill the wifi...
14:56 einball Wifi does DSSS
14:57 Electricguy i can kill our wifi with a small analog video transmitter i got
14:57 Electricguy which i also built my wifi jammer from.. cause i was bored :P
14:58 einball Electricguy: 800W versus 100mW?
14:58 SparkyProjects joined ##thegeekgroup
14:58 Electricguy ook.. 10 meter of cable was probably a little over the edge.. XD
14:59 einball sure it will block your wifi
14:59 Electricguy hell yeah
14:59 Electricguy but VERY little get out of a proper microwave oven
14:59 Null_Route unfortunately, most microwaves are junky chinese \
14:59 einball the problem is, that it will overdrive the input stage of the receivers so they are less sensitive
15:00 Electricguy yeah if you buy a really cheap one.. :P
15:00 Electricguy the kind that you can light a flourecent tube by holding it near the door.. :P
15:00 einball so the wifi signal gets lost
15:00 einball but still - spread spectrum operation is so much worse than a microwave
15:00 Electricguy i hope you are not telling that to ME.. cause i know very well how radio and signal intrusion works
15:01 einball no, I try to tell Null_Route :)
15:01 Electricguy ah
15:01 Null_Route good save.
15:01 einball because he has obviously no clue what he talks about :>
15:02 einball on the other hand - I like to kill the wifi with my ATV transmitter :D
15:02 Null_Route OK - going home
15:02 Null_Route night all!
15:02 einball n8
15:04 * einball is still bored
15:05 einball Electricguy: what do you mean with "pan" ... like a pan you put food in to cook?
15:06 Electricguy PAN stands for Personal Area Network you noob :P
15:07 einball sry, Iam not a network guy
15:07 Electricguy me neither
15:07 Electricguy but i learned stuff in school... :P
15:08 einball I didn't
15:08 Electricguy too bad
15:08 einball but I learned how girls period works >_>
15:08 Electricguy heh.. yepp. i could really have bought a 6 meter cable..
15:08 einball And who Albrecht Dürer was <_<
15:09 Electricguy when the cable reaces through your room and back to the switch you know it's too long
15:09 einball no, then it's fine
15:09 einball because the universe expands
15:09 Electricguy but not my room
15:09 einball You need to have something to compensate :)
15:10 Electricguy thats what my penis is for
15:10 einball anal:// ?
15:11 einball I'm not kidding. there's a protocol named anal ...
15:11 Electricguy what type of protocol is that?
15:11 einball We worked this out as a groupwork :-)
15:11 einball And the other group worked on the game
15:11 einball the little ship thing
15:12 einball sink ships of your opponent by guessing where they are
15:12 Electricguy Awful Nazi Anal Licking?
15:12 Electricguy is that correct?
15:12 einball no
15:13 einball ANALyze
15:13 EG_75MHz joined ##thegeekgroup
15:13 EG_75MHz yay! the cable works
15:13 einball That was a game we did in Delphi together
15:14 EG_75MHz eww! Delphi! O_O
15:15 einball ^^
15:15 einball the only language we had a compiler for
15:16 Electricguy i need to find drivers for this damn DDS drive..
15:17 Electricguy made in Ireland 12 years ago
15:18 einball uhm, no clue :)
15:18 Electricguy ok, it's a Sun DDS drive
15:19 Electricguy standard SCSI interface
15:19 Electricguy the fun thing is that the SCSI PCI cards from the Sun server i scrapped installs automatically with Win XP...
15:21 Electricguy hah!
15:21 Electricguy it seems to be a HP DDS 4
15:22 Electricguy HP supply drivers for it :3
15:25 * y007ghg7 now has an amplifier for his speakers in his room
15:25 y007ghg7 i am happy :D
15:25 Electricguy yay :)
15:25 einball my bro fried mine :(
15:25 einball yesterday
15:25 y007ghg7 D:
15:25 y007ghg7 that sucks
15:26 y007ghg7 i got a sony STR-AV310 from a pawnshop
15:26 einball mmmhm
15:26 einball I have the DE325 :)
15:26 y007ghg7 its rated 10 watts under my max wattage my speakers can handle
15:26 Electricguy i got homemade amps :)
15:27 einball wattage is really not important :)
15:27 y007ghg7 so it works fine for pushing 2 10" subs, and the 2 4" mids
15:27 y007ghg7 when you need bass it is
15:27 Electricguy hah.. and that comes from YOU einball? who dreams about monsterous PA amps?
15:27 Electricguy :P
15:27 y007ghg7 i have 2 13" PA subs :P
15:27 einball Electricguy: Yes, that comes from me ...
15:28 Electricguy did you bash your head into something hard earlier today?! XD
15:28 einball Electricguy: Wattage is something less important when it comes to efficiency and matching.
15:28 Electricguy and yes, Wattage isn't everything. you need quality too. IE. not class D amps
15:28 einball Class D work fine for subs :P
15:29 y007ghg7 i wonder what class this amp would be
15:29 einball AB probably
15:29 y007ghg7 it has great quality
15:29 Electricguy class AB is extremely common
15:29 einball With great power comes great powerbills :D
15:29 y007ghg7 lol
15:29 einball -e
15:29 Electricguy yepp
15:29 einball +e-s
15:29 einball +fuckit
15:29 y007ghg7 90 watts is great for the way my speakers are set up
15:30 Electricguy yeah
15:30 y007ghg7 just turning the volume to 2 makes my entire house shake
15:30 y007ghg7 it goes to 10
15:30 Electricguy with really efficient speakers you can blow your eardrums out with about 5Watts in a regular home
15:30 y007ghg7 yeah
15:31 Electricguy i got 2x80Watts for my sub and 2x60Watts for my satellite speakers
15:31 einball 90watts are more than enought
15:31 Electricguy yeah
15:31 Electricguy 2x15Watts is enough for normal listening
15:31 y007ghg7 the speakers can handle 100 watts RMS
15:31 einball by the way: wood for my new horn is already here :D
15:31 Electricguy as you top around only a couple of Watts at normal listening levels
15:32 y007ghg7 in total for a great audio system i paid $25
15:32 y007ghg7 since my uncle gave these speakers to me
15:33 Electricguy nice :)
15:33 Electricguy i gave 30 dollars for my speakers on a second hand store
15:33 Electricguy VERY nice Swedish made AudioPro speakers
15:33 einball uhm, 25$ ... :P
15:33 Electricguy and then i made one of the amps as a project in school and one at home
15:34 einball I paid about 300 euros for the wood for my new build
15:34 einball totally not makes sense
15:34 Electricguy lol
15:34 y007ghg7 lol
15:35 einball Well, I paid around 70 for my whole system: Got the speakers from my father and the DE325 from Sony for the 70 bucks
15:35 einball but after a while ... Hell was not hot enought :)
15:35 einball I want to dive deeper and fly higher :P
15:36 einball iam crazyball
15:36 einball :P

15:42 Experimentonomen g'aftahnoon peepz
15:43 Electricguy ahoy
15:43 Experimentonomen lets see if there are even drivers for this keyboard that are compatible with windows 7
15:43 Electricguy hehe :D
15:44 Experimentonomen its a miditech 2 prokeys
15:45 Electricguy http://www.miditech.de/site.php4?site_id=127
15:45 BotSteve Title: miditech international | Downloads | MIDI USB keyboard interface musonik
15:45 Electricguy probably called something more as there is no prokeys
15:46 Electricguy got any sticker on the bottom where it says the model?
15:47 Experimentonomen midistart 2 is the only thing i can find apart from miditech and prokeys
15:48 Electricguy oki
15:48 Electricguy i don't think they use a LOT of different stuff.. so pick the driver that sounds closest to the keybpard you got and try that
15:48 Electricguy or just plug it into the computer and see what happens
15:48 Electricguy it may pop up as a generic USB MIDI device
15:49 Experimentonomen huh they dont even offer drivers for download :/
15:50 Electricguy weird
16:00 Experimentonomen the drivers provided does not work, just complains on not keeing a 32bit system
16:01 Electricguy balls!
16:11 einball yes?
16:16 HighMan_ joined ##thegeekgroup
16:17 HighMan Derp...
16:19 Experimentonomen hm for 14 euros, the manufacturer can send a EPROM chip with a up to date firmware to replace the one inside the keyboard, but the question is if its worth it and if it solves the problem with no drivers beeing available

17:13 Seroster They got a hole similar to the hole they put in merchendise that is hung
17:14 Seroster http://www.eroswholesale.com/images/thumbs/KOLKC019.jpg More or less that type
17:14 Seroster I assume you could just make a T-bar from rebar
17:14 einball HighMan: Well ... that's the normal way to go :D
17:15 HighMan xD
17:16 HighMan Seroster, On the video when they filled it with explosive powder... Why is her hand all in marks..
17:19 Hackbat joined ##thegeekgroup
17:20 SparkyProjects There's several typrs of 'key' some have a T on the end, some are just a 90 degree bend
17:20 SparkyProjects If the manhole isn't stuck with crap, you could bend the end of rebar or similar
17:20 SparkyProjects If it's stuck, hit the edge with a big hammer all round to dislodge it
17:21 Experimentonomen aw crap
17:21 Experimentonomen i think i finallt blew one channel of the lafet amp, left channel sounds raspy and trhe respective heatsink is stone cold while the other one is warm :/
17:22 Electricguy crap!
17:22 Electricguy reliable amp ;)
17:22 Experimentonomen well it have lasted for months and survived alot of shit
17:22 SparkyProjects The type for sewers are 'sealed', in that the edge has a doublr lip, you have to lift both ends at the same time or they'll jam
17:23 Experimentonomen i think its the jfet input that blew on one channel when changing to the internal soundcard to free up a usb port
17:24 SparkyProjects http://www.hastools.co.uk/images/thumbs/0008206.jpg
17:24 SparkyProjects Those keys can be bought for about £4
17:24 Electricguy Experimentonomen, ah ok
17:25 Electricguy don't have any attentuator on the input? XD
17:27 Experimentonomen i fixed it
17:28 Experimentonomen it was a rail fuse that had blown

17:41 Electricguy cubase for recording i think
17:41 Chipguy and a lot of VSTs
17:42 Chipguy symbhobia
17:42 Chipguy east west stuff
17:42 Chipguy nexus synth
17:42 Electricguy WEST SIDE IS THE BEST!
17:42 Electricguy YAO!
17:42 Experimentonomen i did kindof expect FL Studio
17:42 Electricguy FL studio is for electronic music producers :)
17:43 Chipguy yeah
17:43 Experimentonomen i have a plugin for fl studio called real guitar, and there are many others u can get for music like cinematic and all kinds of other genres
17:44 Experimentonomen kinda sucks that miditech doesent have a driver for win 7 :(
17:47 Experimentonomen i guess i could install xp on another hdd though, but it'd suck having to swap hdd cables around each time i wanna use the keyboard, and im not sure if it even works
17:47 Experimentonomen even if i dont have a working driver, it should stuff pop up a message about new usb devices beeing plugged in
17:47 Experimentonomen still*
17:48 Electricguy or install XP on a virtual machine
17:50 Experimentonomen i dont think that would work
17:50 Experimentonomen u still need some kinda win 7 driver as it has to port the usb comms into the VM
17:51 Electricguy it's worth a try
17:53 Experimentonomen this keyboard does have a dc connector for 9VDC but the manual specifies "self powered from usb" so i dont think thats needed
17:56 Auriga joined ##thegeekgroup
17:57 Electricguy does it have a MIDI DIN too?
17:57 Experimentonomen yes
17:58 Electricguy oki
17:58 Experimentonomen and i could install a soundcard that has a game port
17:58 Electricguy then it may come in handy with external power if you are using that :)
17:58 Electricguy yepp
17:58 Experimentonomen but i doubt theres a win 7 driver for that old soundcard
17:58 Electricguy creative soundblaster audigy is good
17:58 Electricguy and they got game ports
17:59 Electricguy it depends on the card :P
17:59 Experimentonomen soundblaster live or something, its so old that it has that ide connector on it
17:59 Electricguy hehe yeah the SB Live is old :P
18:00 Electricguy http://support.creative.com/kb/showarticle.aspx?sid=61105
18:00 Experimentonomen and if im not mistaken, i tried that game port midi thing i have back when had the old pentium machine and a keyboard and was unable to get it working
18:00 BotSteve Title: Creative Worldwide Support
18:00 Electricguy if it's in that list, there are Windows 7 drivers
18:01 Electricguy seems like there is a external Live! card thats supported
18:01 Electricguy but not the old internal one
18:01 Electricguy check ebay for second hand ones... :P

18:08 Electricguy ATTENTUATORWHORE!
18:08 Electricguy now thats something new and wild
18:08 Experimentonomen i think i'll put the win xp driver on a usb stick and take the keyboard back to work and try it on the testing machine there
18:08 Electricguy ok. good idea
18:09 KB3NZQ why is #thegeekgroup set to invite only??
18:09 Electricguy cause it's officially closed
18:09 Electricguy thing is, there are still people in the channel
18:10 Electricguy and why it's not closed, i don't know
18:10 KB3NZQ ok
18:11 Experimentonomen though the winxp driver install does pop up a thing but when i press "install" it just sez "please turn on/plug in your midistart/midistudio device"
18:12 Experimentonomen only sign of life is the power led :/
18:12 Electricguy hmmm okey
18:13 SparkyProjects KB3NZQ: This is the unofficial channel, the official channel is at irc.thegeekgroup.org #thegeekgroup
18:14 KB3NZQ already got that from some one else thanks

18:21 mashpriborintorg hi
18:21 Experimentonomen g'aftahnoon mash
18:21 mashpriborintorg yay I'm happy
18:21 mashpriborintorg 1- I'm in week end already
18:22 mashpriborintorg 2- garbage day was good I god piles of stuff
18:22 mashpriborintorg kilos of wores for scrapping, a crowded TV chassis, a shopvac motor
18:22 ajprog_laptop joined ##thegeekgroup
18:23 mashpriborintorg a 80's phone and a big VW car healight from 2008, with lots of stuff in it
18:23 mashpriborintorg and a free shower
18:23 mashpriborintorg :p
18:23 Experimentonomen old junque ;p
18:23 Experimentonomen JUNK!!! :P
18:24 mashpriborintorg the car headlight is quite modern stuff
18:24 mashpriborintorg and the scrap yard buys wire at 1,2 euro per kilo so it's all good
18:27 Experimentonomen mash, i got one of these today for 20 euros: http://www.prodj.com.ua/images/img2_id2/20100526160830.jpg
18:28 mashpriborintorg not bad but music stuff is not my favorite hobby, I don't know the retail prices :p
18:29 Experimentonomen i believe this thing was around 500 or more euros new
18:29 Experimentonomen its discontinued though
18:30 Experimentonomen and as it happens, there are no win 7 compatible drivers :(
18:30 Experimentonomen when plugged in, my pc acts like the cable aint plugged into anything
18:31 Electricguy plug in an external PSU too and see what it does
18:31 mashpriborintorg yeah, lots of stuff has W7 issues
18:34 Experimentonomen giving it power on the external dc input doesent seem to do anything, not even the power led lights up
18:35 Experimentonomen which is a sign it might be damaged, the prev owner took it to work to find a 9V adaptor so maybe the tried different ones, forgot to check if it was ac or dc and blew something, theres a lm7805 in there though
18:37 Experimentonomen though since it is a insrtrument meant to use the software that comes with the driver, maybe it doesent send the standard usb comms like say a usb soundcard and thus doesent pop up the "a new device was plugged in, installing drivers" thing
18:42 Experimentonomen i wonder how hard it is to setup multiboot if even possible with one OS already installed
18:50 Cprossu it's easy enough... to screw up.
18:50 Cprossu you have one chance with gparted usually, and you have to be rather calculating on partition resizing.
18:50 Cprossu if you want to mess with another os for the sake of messing with it though
18:50 Cprossu download virtualbox
18:51 Experimentonomen i tried vvirtualbox, it just throws an error message, claiming something in bios is disabled
18:52 Experimentonomen "failed to start session" blah blah "amd-v in bios disabled" something
19:17 Electricguy Broken Sword: The shadow of the templars is the most fun game i have ever played for GBA :D

20:23 Seroster Ground the purple,   Yellow-black will be 12vDC15amps...
20:25 Electricguy ?
20:26 Seroster Computer PSU, right?
20:26 Seroster AFAIK that is the way to hack them
20:26 Electricguy ground green
20:26 Seroster But doesn't it shut down if it doesn't detect a load for X seconds?
20:26 Electricguy some PSUs do
20:26 Electricguy but it's pretty rare
20:27 Seroster Well I got five like that in a row
20:27 Electricguy if it does. hook up like a 21Watt car lightbulb to the 5V rail
20:27 Electricguy or any other power sucking device
20:27 Seroster .c 4amps
20:27 BotSteve 4 amperes
20:27 Seroster =)
20:28 Electricguy ?
20:28 Seroster That would be a three ohm resistor
20:28 Electricguy whats with the 4A?
20:28 Seroster Five volts 20watts would be 4amps
20:28 Seroster 4amps five volts three ohms
20:28 Electricguy it's not pulling that on 5V
20:29 Electricguy it's like having a motor and claiming it pulls 6A anywhere between 1V and 47kV
20:29 Seroster Since the bulb is made for 12? Well fuck that bulb then
20:29 Electricguy a 10Ohm >10Watt resistor works a treat too
20:30 Seroster I don't have a car, I got 0 nicht and none car lamps.   However, I have hundreds and hundreds of power resistors ranging from 30w to 2w
20:30 Electricguy here's a pretty good tutorial http://www.wikihow.com/Convert-a-Computer-ATX-Power-Supply-to-a-Lab-Power-Supply

20:34 sndwrx joined ##thegeekgroup
20:35 Seroster Seems like the orange one was the problemn
20:36 Electricguy thats the 3.3V output
20:36 Electricguy don't ground that
20:36 Seroster DERP
20:36 Electricguy you'll overload the PSU and kill it
20:36 Electricguy whats really weird is if the PSU don't shut off when you ground that
20:36 Seroster Grounding 22amps sounds like a GREAT fucking idea, because I'm legally retarded!
20:36 * Seroster headdesks
20:37 BatSteve hola
20:37 Electricguy ahoy
20:37 Seroster Oi
20:37 Seroster (Most PSU's have a smaller orange wire that is used for sensing-- 3.3V- and this wire is usually paired at the connector to another orange wire. Make sure this wire is connected to the other orange wires, otherwise your lab power supply won't stay on.) This wire should be connected to either an orange wire (+3.3V) or a red wire (+5V) for the power supply to function.
20:37 * Experimentonomen pops sero on the head
20:37 BatSteve BotSteve: should Seroster ground it with his face?
20:37 BotSteve Definitely
20:37 BatSteve :D
20:37 Electricguy ah you mean then thin little wire?
20:38 Electricguy yeah thats a sense wire
20:38 Electricguy the thicker ones give 3.3V and a bucket full of Amps out
20:38 * Electricguy noms yoghurt, cornflakes and reh strawberries :3
20:39 Seroster THAT is the orange that was the problam
20:39 Electricguy ah
20:39 Seroster NOT grounding the other oranges since that would be idiotic
20:39 Electricguy it wasn't really clear.. :P
20:39 Electricguy yes. something you if anyone would totally do.. :P
20:40 * Experimentonomen wonders what reh strawberries are
20:40 Cprossu joined ##thegeekgroup

20:40 Electricguy fresh*
20:41 * Electricguy need new fingers as the current ones got a visit from buttsex ninja earlier
20:41 Experimentonomen ouch
20:41 Seroster Buttsex ninja? Nah, Bultsaxninja however!
20:41 exor674 also come on, shorting the 3.3v rail isn't fun! shorting ALL the 12v rails to ground is where it's at!
20:42 Experimentonomen exor674, shorting the 12V ones just shuts off the psu
20:42 exor674 bah :(
20:42 Experimentonomen :P
20:45 Electricguy i had a SHITTY ATX PSU once. (yes, it was a Qtec) i tried to load the 12V rail down a LOT.. it never shut off.. XD
20:45 Electricguy if i applied the load slowly i got it up well over 40A.. then it let the magic smoke out
20:45 Electricguy AWESOME design..
20:46 exor674 hee
20:53 Experimentonomen it prolly dident have the overload sensing implemented
20:54 BitViper_Lappy joined ##thegeekgroup
20:55 Experimentonomen but beware, theres two Q tec, one Qtec and one Q-tec, sound the same, completely different crands
20:55 Electricguy yeah
20:55 Electricguy Qtec sucked balls
20:55 Electricguy Q-tec is decent
20:55 Experimentonomen the Qtec one = shit, the Q-tec one = very high end psus in comparison to most psus on the market
20:56 Electricguy Qtec was basically just a china ripoff
20:57 Experimentonomen mine is happens to be a rebranded Qtec psu, box is paper thin sheet metal and the board is made outta the cheapest piece of chit china material u can find
20:57 Experimentonomen and the heatsinks are just bent pieces of metal rather than proper alu extrusions/castings
20:58 mashpriborintorg fried, too much junk to play with, going to sleep, bye
20:59 Experimentonomen and heres a fun fact, miditech is based in germany but guess where the products are actually made, yep u guessed it, CHINA!!!
21:03 Experimentonomen aight im gonna goto bed too
21:03 Experimentonomen nite peepz
21:04 BatSteve Things I did not know that I just learned:  If you copy/paste a URL from the Firefox address bar, it will contain http:// even though that element doesn't actually display in the address bar
21:05 Electricguy yay. i just bought a O-Clock :D
21:05 Electricguy (oscilloscope clock board from Sparkfun

21:21 Seroster electricguy, I got two 12v, one 10 and one 15amp (yellow or yellow/black) - Pick one.  "You got twenty seconds to comply!"

21:23 Seroster I LOVE the two perfect clouds that come out of the muzzles
21:29 BatSteve Holy cow, that's a LOT of smoke
21:29 Seroster It IS isnt it?!
21:29 Seroster And the love and planning that went into that special effect
21:29 Seroster They mut have had a diffusor in the end to prevent the gas just shooting out
21:32 BatSteve It occurs to me that the ED-209 would be a tremendously bad police officer, but it would be a pretty good military robot.
21:32 Seroster Err
21:32 Seroster Yes
21:33 BotSteve joined ##thegeekgroup
21:34 BatSteve Okay, so who has a phone that runs Android and why should I get a phone with Android?
21:35 masterofmonks For one, flexability. you can install custom roms on most phones.
21:35 Seroster Because I'll rape you if you get apple?
21:37 BatSteve Well Apple was never under consideration.  Basically it's android or else I try to figure out how to transfer my data from my old Palm Pre to a new Palm Pre
21:37 masterofmonks Two there is an app for just about everything, and most of them are free or ad supported. most of the time the ads are not intrusive.

21:46 BatSteve Ok
21:48 masterofmonks Makes me want to "accidentially" drop my phone in the test vat and claim the insurance on my phone and upgrade.
21:55 BatSteve Go for it
21:56 BatSteve meanwhile, time to go somewhere cooler.
21:56 BatSteve-Away ("Cooler" meaning temperature.  You guys are all pretty cool.)
21:56 Seroster lol
21:59 EG_75MHz hehe

22:26 einball forget about that
22:26 einball bad quality
22:27 einball think of c64 noise and a fft afterwards and then an ideal filter
22:29 Damianz Tron is a bit of a strange film
22:29 einball why? :)
22:30 Damianz Never really understood the start, it's a little too un-realistic.
22:31 einball from the new or the old?
22:31 Damianz Old, don't think I've seen the new one actually.
22:32 einball hmm, they invented a laser that can put biological information into data.
22:32 einball so he went into that digital world, got lost and found a friend in tron
22:32 einball i think it was an antivirus
22:33 einball and then defeated another bad program. end of file
