[0:10] <ubuntu_> hi all
[0:11] <ubuntu_> it is possible to order boxed board? as far af i see, i can have it only naked
[0:15] * ReimuHakurei (~kudo@wireless.sit-co.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:15] <ReggieUK> naked only
[0:15] <ReggieUK> unless the community starts to make cases
[0:16] <ReggieUK> in which case you can have a case but it'll most likely be from a 3rd party
[0:16] <traeak> who's naked ?
[0:16] <traeak> !welsh naked
[0:16] <PiBot> traeak: noeth (English)
[0:16] <ReggieUK> !russian naked
[0:16] <PiBot> ReggieUK: ???????????????????? (English)
[0:17] <ReggieUK> !welsh naked raspberry pi
[0:17] <PiBot> ReggieUK: noeth mafon pi (English)
[0:17] <ubuntu_> naked board=without plasctic box
[0:18] <ReggieUK> !welsh naked raspberry pi only 25 dollars
[0:18] <PiBot> ReggieUK: noeth mafon pi dim ond 25 ddoleri (English)
[0:19] <ubuntu_> look, i have project in mind for raspberripi board, but i cant go to my boss with a nacked board, it will be not professional.
[0:22] <traeak> !welsh nekkid
[0:22] <PiBot> traeak: nekkid (English)
[0:29] <ubuntu_> i hope you can sell case for raspberrypi, no matter if came from 3d part
[0:39] <traeak> not sure who "you" is
[0:39] <mdavey> Cases will almost certainly be available from multiple suppliers from launch.
[0:39] <traeak> i'm not sure any of the rpi people are represented in here
[0:39] <mdavey> they are not
[0:40] <mdavey> (unless are lurking)
[0:42] <ukscone> if they are in here lurking then they'd better get back to work and stop lollygagging -- shue shue get outta here liz
[0:44] <mdavey> two PiBots?
[0:45] <ukscone> yes one is to watch the other one to make sure it doesn't do anything wrong
[0:45] <ukscone> who will watch the watchers
[0:46] <mdavey> who watches the watcher?
[0:46] <mdavey> I guess we do :)
[0:46] <ukscone> can't trust the bots not to modify the logs
[0:47] <mdavey> Okay - so what's with DataBot?
[0:48] <ukscone> don't ask me i went to sleep there were only 2 in here then
[0:49] <mdavey> Maybe DataBot isn't a bot - just a human pretending to be a bot.
[0:49] * Thorn_ renames to ThornBot
[0:51] <mdavey> ThornBot: #bots has less bots that R.Pi does.
[0:51] <mdavey> Unless all the bots in there are pretending to be humans, that is.
[0:52] <Thorn_> that was pretty surreal right there, "ThornBot" still highlighted me, took me a few minutes to realise I added "*thorn*" to irc highlights ;p
[0:58] * rc55 (~rc55@rc55.st4vs.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[1:01] <Thorn_> hmm
[1:01] <Thorn_> the RaspberryPi AI
[1:01] <Thorn_> use one of the gpio pins to handle a multicolour LED
[1:01] <Thorn_> it's 'red' if the AI is in a bad mood
[1:02] <Thorn_> Pi9000
[1:02] <ubuntu_> too much stupid topic. bye
[1:02] * ubuntu_ (~ubuntu@host230-40-dynamic.251-95-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) has left #raspberrypi
[1:02] <Thorn_> the stupidest part is where he comes onto IRC to ask official questions
[1:03] <Thorn_> he got his answer, what more did he want? oO
[1:06] <ReggieUK> now he's gone we can stop pretending to give a crap about cases ;)
[1:06] <ReggieUK> put the damn thing in a margerine tub
[1:07] <Thorn_> bahaha
[1:07] <ReggieUK> sooo, which do you think was the stupidest topic?
[1:08] <ReggieUK> [23:17] <ReggieUK> !welsh naked raspberry pi only 25 dollars
[1:11] <ReggieUK> I dread to think what the level of stupid will drop to once the pi goes live
[1:14] <ukscone> ReggieUK: shall we start a book (have a bet) on which will be the #1 top stupid question
[1:15] <DaQatz> People are talking about an unreleased product without form specs... And he leaves saying that talk of bots in the channel is to "Stupid". I would say the issue was him being rude.
[1:16] <DaQatz> firm*
[1:17] <ReggieUK> indeed, we didn't start with stupid, he got answered sensibly from the get go
[1:17] <ReggieUK> then we went stupid
[1:18] <ukscone> there might be a cause and effect there
[1:20] <ukscone> http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/09/02/london_philharmonic_plays_video_game_themes/
[1:20] <ReggieUK> can't see it myself, there was nary a mention of sheep
[1:20] <ukscone> sheep is so last year. we are going to move on to goats now
[1:24] <ReggieUK> I thought goats was 2009?
[1:24] <ReggieUK> I thought it was reindeer next?
[1:25] <DaQatz> It's elk this year right
[1:25] <DaQatz> Next year goats?
[1:27] <ReggieUK> I heard wooly mammoths were trying to do a comeback
[1:27] <ReggieUK> got a frosty reception though apparently
[1:28] <DaQatz> They'll make a come back when elephants can grow beards.
[1:28] <DaQatz> Or better
[1:30] <ReggieUK> :D

[1:47] <ShiftPlusOne> heh... too much stupid topic
[1:53] <ReggieUK> sounds like a meme if ever I heard one
[1:54] <ukscone> i can haz too much stupid topic
[1:55] <ReggieUK> topic should be: unofficial too much stupid topic for the raspberry pi
[1:57] <ukscone> ShiftPlusOne: was just curious if you have had any trouble with getting a 192.168.x.x using the git qemu
[1:57] <ShiftPlusOne> what exactly for?
[1:58] <ukscone> rather than the 10.x.x.x one it defaults to when you are trying to setup networking in a qemu vm
[1:58] <ShiftPlusOne> you'd have to use TAP, I think
[1:58] <ReggieUK> TAP?
[1:59] <ukscone> yup it used to work but it seems to be fubar (at least for me) in the git version
[1:59] <ShiftPlusOne> ReggieUK, a virtual network interface
[1:59] <ReggieUK> oh tun/tap?
[1:59] <ukscone> although last time i set it up on this computer it was 2009
[1:59] <ShiftPlusOne> yeah, that one
[1:59] <ReggieUK> won't it want bridging? or something on the host?
[1:59] <ShiftPlusOne> https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/QEMU#Tap_Networking_with_QEMU
[2:00] <ukscone> http://countdown.tfl.gov.uk/#|searchTerm=w1 this is kind of cool
[2:00] <ShiftPlusOne> ReggieUK, probably. I haven't had to use it yet, the default tcp/udp is good enough for me
[2:02] <ReggieUK> not even sure what we use on the didj, I know it's lots of odd stuff which I culled and just left telnetd/vsftpd and setup a couple of scripts for NFS
[2:02] <ReggieUK> lots of avahi crud
[2:02] <ShiftPlusOne> more info on TAP and qemu: http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/QEmu#Using_the_emulated_OS_with_ethernet_and_a_valid_IP
[2:03] <ReggieUK> then we just use g_ether (usb gadget) to setup a network with the host
[2:03] <ReggieUK> then it's up to you if you want to bridge to the host or not
[2:06] <ShiftPlusOne> 'night
[2:19] <ReggieUK> night
[2:32] * jimerickson (~jimericks@97-125-248-104.desm.qwest.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[2:44] <ukscone> mdavey: i like your rebuttal to that ex-ict teachers blog post -- i was going to post on his blog about the table bit but i had to go serve dinner to the masses so only just got back
[2:46] <mdavey> ukscone: thanks. I don't work in education, so I can't guess whether the number of university drop-outs in each subject would support his argument or mine - but it would certainly be an interesting extra data point.
[2:47] <ukscone> i found it interesting he only showed that data when he seems to have access to all the data from what he says his job is now
[2:47] <ukscone> liz also made a good point -- CS covers alot of evil
[2:48] <ukscone> i should ask a friend who is a CS lecturer at aberwywyth uni
[2:48] <_Lucretia_> !help
[3:00] <mdavey> Liz: I have one of those attached to the ps2 jack of my lovely IBM Model M keyboard, which sadly no longer works because Mooncake the Official Raspberry Pi Cat poured a pot of coffee into it
[3:06] <ReggieUK> wow liz has a cat with opposable thumbs
[3:06] <ReggieUK> or a velcro coffee pot
[3:06] <ukscone> and a small anger management problem
[3:07] <ukscone> it did it out of spite because liz was spending too much time with the keyboard
[3:11] <mdavey> ukscone: most probably. Sounds like something my cat would do.
[3:11] <ukscone> it is something my cats do twice a day
[3:12] <mdavey> I don't know many cats that drink coffee, thou. Especially by the pot.
[3:12] <ukscone> http://russelldavis.org/Stuff/innocent-gizmo.jpg
[3:12] <ukscone> mine eats corn bread, mashmallow fluff, cheese, cheez-its......
[3:12] <mdavey> I guess it is a software or hardware engineer
[3:13] <ukscone> i think he is tech support -- he formatted a hard disk a fortnight ago
[3:13] <mdavey> oh, okay.
[3:13] <mdavey> would have been cold coffee then.
[3:16] <mdavey> what else would we like to know about Mooncake?
[3:17] <ukscone> paw size
[3:17] <ukscone> star sign
[3:18] <ukscone> mac or pc
[3:18] <ukscone> eastenders or coranation street
[3:20] <mdavey> ukscone: These are questions for Mooncake, right?
[3:21] <ukscone> yup
[3:21] <mdavey> Because Liz is married.
[3:21] <ukscone> i don't think liz has paw's
[3:22] <mdavey> okay, just checking ;)
[3:22] <ukscone> my wife would kill me anyway
[3:25] <mdavey> I really ought to go to bed
[3:25] <ukscone> i'm waiting for my pie to finish cooking
[3:25] <ukscone> baking even
[3:25] <ukscone> i got bored earlier so decided to make a few pies
[3:25] <ukscone> of course i am supposed to be working but baking is more fun
[3:28] <mdavey> :)
[3:28] <mdavey> I can see a run on raspberry-related items in the Cambridge area this Christmas
[3:29] <mdavey> Someone mentioned they saw a dark colcolate with little bits of real raspberry in, about a week ago. Been having cravins ever since. Might have to do some googling to find out where to get such a thing.
[3:30] <mdavey> *cravings
[3:30] <DaQatz> !g Dark chocolate with raspberry
[3:30] <PiBot> DaQatz: http://www.chocolove.com/raspberries.htm - "Chocolove Chocolate Bars - Raspberries in Dark Chocolate Bar"
[3:36] <ukscone> there used to be something like a caramello here but instead of caramel it was raspberry jelly stuff
[3:37] <ukscone> and theey have raspberry jaffa cakes here too
[3:38] <ukscone> heh trollied is so stupid it's actually funny :)
[3:38] <DaQatz> ?
[3:38] <ukscone> DaQatz: it's a uk sitcom
[3:38] <ukscone> just watching the latest episode
[3:39] <DaQatz> Ah
[3:40] <ukscone> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trollied

[15:05] <ReggieUK> hi ukscone
[15:15] <ukscone> hi ReggieUK
[15:15] <ukscone> excuse my french but b****** hell
[15:16] <ukscone> just found out a friends kid who is in the military acadamy (the citidel) -- the army is trying to pull him out of classes to deploy him
[15:18] <ukscone> he still has 3 years to go and they want to pull his class out and send them to afganistan
[15:18] <ReggieUK> sounds like someone needs a punch
[15:19] <ReggieUK> that's just awful
[15:19] <ReggieUK> is the US army that depleted?
[15:21] <ukscone> i wouldn't have thought so
[15:21] <ukscone> he was supposed to be in a 4 year course and to come out as a medic
[15:21] <ukscone> and then have to give the army 8 years
[15:22] <ReggieUK> I take it they want hom to kill people instead now
[15:22] <ReggieUK> ?
[15:22] <ukscone> yup
[15:22] <ukscone> they want him to go in as an infantry man
[15:22] <ukscone> i think there must be a way to fight it though
[15:22] <ukscone> but they are probably allowed to do it although it isn't right
[15:22] <ReggieUK> I'm guessing he didn't want to kill people in the first place hence becoming a medic
[15:22] <ReggieUK> conscientious objector?
[15:23] <ukscone> he wanted to go into the army and this was a comprimise with his parents
[15:23] <ukscone> i.e. go to the citidel (ok that will take 4 years), train as a medic (another 2 years) they then thought it might all be over
[15:23] <ReggieUK> ahh, so in reality he probably doesn't mind killing people, just his parents do? Or don't want him to die over there
[15:24] <ukscone> yup he doesn't mind he wanted to go into the citidel and his parents said no so he said he'd join up anyway so they said ok but only after the army said he wqouldn't be deployed for 4 to 6 years
[15:25] <ukscone> now he's done a year the army is saying "you know enough now go to war"
[15:29] <ReggieUK> :/
[15:30] <ukscone> w00t! my two cats are tolerating each other
[15:30] <ukscone> it's not a cat fight atm
[15:31] <ukscone> it's been a continious cat fight for a year as they hate each other and they only came into the house 4 days apart
[15:31] <ukscone> it looks like they have finally got bored with killing each other
[15:35] <IT_Sean> Dammit...
[15:35] <IT_Sean> The one time i haven't got a camera with me :/
[15:35] <IT_Sean> yee olde B-25 just overflew the house. Low.

[16:47] <ukscone> wife is hogging the tv, cats are killing each other and i can't think of anything to do -- i have lots of things to do but none of them appeal at the moment and there is only so much stareing at the wall you can do in a day
[16:49] <Thorn_> go outside? :P
[16:50] <ukscone> but there is sunlight and bugs and well people outside
[16:50] * ukscone shudders
[16:54] <ReggieUK> build a quadcopter and make it go outside?
[16:55] <ReggieUK> put wireless ip cams on the cats and pretend you're in a first cat beatemup
[16:56] <ukscone> :)

[17:31] <ukscone> nobody here but us chickens
[17:31] <ReggieUK> travel scrabble anyone?
[17:32] <IT_Sean> it's a lovely day outside :)
[17:32] <ukscone> depends on your definition of lovely
[17:32] * ReggieUK slaps IT_Sean with a large inside
[17:32] <IT_Sean> OW!
[17:33] <ukscone> i am mulling a quick trip to dunkin donuts though
[17:33] <DaQatz> "Lovely" In reference to weather. Not storming or so cold that my balls freeze to my leg.
[17:33] <IT_Sean> !w 08735

[17:33] <ReggieUK> mmmmmn, donuts
[17:33] <ukscone> but i'd need to find the energy to get dressed first and the will power to go down 2 flights of stairs
[17:33] <ukscone> !w 11220
[17:33] <PiBot> ukscone: in Brooklyn, NY on 2011-09-03 13:51:00 +0000 temperature 75??F 24??C, condition Cloudy, Humidity: 62%.
[17:33] <IT_Sean> sunny & 79F. Lovely.
[17:33] <IT_Sean> Nice enough to be sitting outside right now.
[17:34] <ReggieUK> sun=bad
[17:34] <ukscone> nah too hot
[17:34] <IT_Sean> sun = GOOD
[17:34] <DaQatz> But then you'd be away from your computer.
[17:34] <IT_Sean> and there is a nice cool breeze off the water
[17:34] <IT_Sean> DaQatz: I'm outside right now!
[17:34] <ReggieUK> what wavelength is blue sky at?
[17:34] <ReggieUK> cos that's bad for sleep too
[17:34] <DaQatz> IT_Sean, horrible...
[17:34] <IT_Sean> !!!
[17:34] <DaQatz> IT_Sean, It's not making the screen hard to see?
[17:34] <IT_Sean> Not under this awning
[17:35] <IT_Sean> I switched my terminal to large font / bold, so... Pretty easy to read
[17:35] <IT_Sean> :p
[17:35] <DaQatz> IT_Sean, horrible...
[17:35] <IT_Sean> what's horrible!?

[17:35] <cITs> hi
[17:35] <IT_Sean> I am an outdoorsey geek!
[17:35] <IT_Sean> 'ello cITs
[17:36] <DaQatz> Contradiction!
[17:36] <IT_Sean> Not really.
[17:36] <cITs> outdoors geek ... i think i am wrong here
[17:36] <ReggieUK> the only reason for geeks to go outdoors is to find somewhere else indoors
[17:36] <DaQatz> Actually I am too.
[17:36] <cITs> exactly
[17:36] <IT_Sean> Just because all of you shun the outdoors doesn't mean every geek has to!
[17:36] <DaQatz> I garden etc...
[17:37] <DaQatz> Cut wood
[17:37] <cITs> never heard of a server running in a park
[17:37] <ukscone> IT_Sean: you might have already told us but are you going to go to maker faire in 2 weeks?
[17:37] <DaQatz> But only because I don't like freezing
[17:37] <IT_Sean> ukscone: i am not.,
[17:37] <IT_Sean> Can't getthe time off
[17:38] <ukscone> oh well
[17:38] <DaQatz> Sad
[17:40] <ukscone> you could always build a robot version of your self using bits from a server, papier mache and duct tape. who'd know the difference
[17:40] <ukscone> just put it at your desk with a tape loop saying "sod off" every 10 minutes
[17:41] <IT_Sean> Technically, i could remote into my work PC from my iPad, and foward my office line to my iPhone, but... My office hasn't got a door, so, it would be pretty obvious that i wasn't actually IN the office.
[17:42] <IT_Sean> Besides... If i accidentally made a robot that performed my job better than i did, i'd be up a tree.
[17:43] <ukscone> true it could backfire
[17:43] <ukscone> better make it kill someone eveery few hours just to make sure they don't want it working there perminantly
[17:44] <IT_Sean> That wouldn't work either... It'd off the entire company in a day, and then i'd have noone to sign my paychecks.
[17:45] <ukscone> that might be a problem
[17:46] <DaQatz> why?
[17:46] <IT_Sean> Besides... I really don't feel like having to work out how to build a Windows based IT_Sean-robot. (my boss, as i may have said before, is veery anti-linux)
[17:47] <IT_Sean> which can be annoying at times.
[17:47] <DaQatz> Most of the people I know who are "anti linux" Have used windows most their lives. And only saw some one else use linux. And argued with them.
[17:48] <Thorn_> windows is just linux done right anyway
[17:48] <Thorn_> </topic>
[17:48] * Thorn_ sticks fingers in ears lalala
[17:48] * IT_Sean facepalms
[17:49] * datagutt wtfs
[17:49] * ukscone wonders if it is legal to shoot Thorn_
[17:49] <Thorn_> on linux ur gun would take a coredump before you got to the trigger...
[17:49] <IT_Sean> Depends... is he in season?
[17:50] <ukscone> it must be if only yo save him from himself
[17:50] * stasis (~stasis@ has joined #raspberrypi
[17:50] * IT_Sean takes a coredump in Thorn_'s lving room
[17:50] <DaQatz> Yes that's the problem with tourist season... they won;t let me shoot one.
[17:50] <Thorn_> I'm sure even stasis will agree that Windows is better!
[17:50] <stasis> lolwut?
[17:50] <stasis> debian ATM
[17:51] <IT_Sean> Thorn_: are you kidding (really... i'm not sure anymore)?
[17:51] <Thorn_> IT_Sean: mostly

[17:51] <IT_Sean> <--- Ubuntu 10 PPC, at the moment
[17:52] <stasis> what are you using thorn?
[17:52] * IT_Sean Ubunto 10.10 PPC / 2 GIG RAM / 80 GIG HDD / 1.33 GHz CPU
[17:52] <Thorn_> stasis: ?
[17:52] <IT_Sean> *Ubuntu
[17:52] <DaQatz> AN old mac?
[17:52] <stasis> lol
[17:52] <IT_Sean> Me? PoweerBook G4.
[17:53] <stasis> i'm actually connected through a VPS
[17:53] <DaQatz> I like PPC arch
[17:53] <stasis> nice
[17:53] <Thorn_> <epenis> well *i'm* conencted through a dedi! </epenis>
[17:53] <IT_Sean> Don't knock it... it's a good machine. Bit dented (it's seen a lot of action), but still going strong after all these years.
[17:53] <stasis> :( you win
[17:53] <stasis> wait, you're powerbook is the dedi right?
[17:53] <stasis> lol
[17:54] <Thorn_> i think you're confusing people here ;p
[17:54] <IT_Sean> He is.
[17:54] <stasis> sorry, it's kinda late where i am
[17:54] <IT_Sean> He's confused the piss out of me, that's fer sure.
[17:54] * IT_Sean is the one with the PBG4
[17:54] <stasis> my bad
[17:55] <stasis> so...... any one actually using a development board?
[17:55] <DaQatz> I wish
[17:55] <stasis> i WAS about to get a guruplug until i stumbled on this on engadget a month ago
[17:55] <stasis> aka sheevaplug
[17:56] <DaQatz> Yeah that would cost more, and likely do less.
[17:56] <stasis> you reckon?
[17:57] * ReimuHakurei (~kudo@wireless.sit-co.net) Quit (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)
[17:57] <Thorn_> was gonna buy a dreamplug here
[17:57] <Thorn_> price was always a bit shaky, especially when i heard the PSU's in those thing have a habit of overheating and popping
[17:57] <DaQatz> More cpu and ram, but less flexible.
[17:58] <stasis> true
[17:58] <DaQatz> And costs much more
[17:58] <stasis> waaay more
[17:58] <DaQatz> Never a worry about bricking either.
[17:59] <IT_Sean> Someone across the lagoon from me is burning yard debris, and the wind is blowing the smoke right at me :(
[17:59] <stasis> i've heard bad things about them that way
[18:00] <stasis> u live next to a lagoon?
[18:00] <IT_Sean> I'm sitting aboout 10 feet from the water right now.
[18:00] <DaQatz> Jump in?
[18:01] <IT_Sean> I think no.
[18:01] <DaQatz> Computer isn;t water proof?
[18:02] <IT_Sean> Well, there is that, but, also, it's only about two foot deep, and full of debris from the recent flooding.
[18:02] <IT_Sean> and really nasty jellyfish.
[18:03] <DaQatz> someone dropped Swedish fish in it?
[18:05] <IT_Sean> no... no... the long tenticley stinging sort
[18:06] <stasis> so anyone ever played with the RP?
[18:06] <IT_Sean> it isn't released yet, stasis
[18:06] <stasis> the development board i mean
[18:07] <IT_Sean> I don't think any prototypes have left the R Pi office.
[18:08] <stasis> was hoping that a PR dev would be present, intersted to hear their take
[18:08] <DaQatz> I think they are actually working instead of chatting.
[18:09] <ReggieUK> indeed, the best you get here is random speculation, qemu talk and too much stupid topic
[18:09] <ukscone> hmmmmm anyone played and or built basic-256 on linux?
[18:09] <IT_Sean> The random speculation generally revolves around "it'll be brilliant" and "i want one"
[18:09] <ukscone> IT_Sean: and what colour it'll be
[18:09] <IT_Sean> heh
[18:10] <IT_Sean> and on that note, i am off
[18:10] <ukscone> actually i was told the board will be green
[18:10] * IT_Sean goes to get some lunch
[18:10] * IT_Sean (~IT_Sean@applefritter/IRCStaff/UltimateMacUser1) Quit (Quit: phood)
[18:10] <ukscone> i was hoping it'd be red
[18:10] <stasis> black would be awesome
[18:10] <ReggieUK> white or purple would do me
[18:10] <stasis> i'll put flames on it to make it go faster too
[18:10] <ReggieUK> and a stripe?
[18:10] <ukscone> yup has to have go faster stripes
[18:11] <ReggieUK> should probably work a way of getting a laser on that board too
[18:11] <ReggieUK> laser=instant awesome
[18:11] <DaQatz> Unless it's pointed in your eye
[18:11] <DaQatz> Then it's instant something else.
[18:11] <ukscone> well you have two eyes just don't do it twice
[18:12] <ReggieUK> instant cyclops
[18:12] <DaQatz> ukscone, unless it's to the same eye twice.
[18:12] <ReggieUK> and you can get glasses to prevent that
[18:12] <ReggieUK> so observe the proper protocals for lasers and you'll be fine
[18:13] <DaQatz> Proper what now? Ooooooo lasers!
[18:13] <stasis> lol, anyway, i'm off. It's pretty late here in aussie town
[18:13] <stasis> cya guys
[18:14] <DaQatz> Later stasis
[18:16] <DaQatz> It has gotten quiet.
[18:25] <ukscone> yup -- waiting for the kid to come back from subway with lunch and building BASIC-256 on x86 then will try cross compiling for armv6

[18:40] <DaQatz> qt4 is a bit heavy
[18:40] <Thorn_> qt4 is like a lead weight
[18:40] <DaQatz> Though there is liter version for embeded.
[18:40] <DaQatz> lighter*
[18:40] * ChrisLenz (~ChrisLenz@c-71-194-107-12.hsd1.il.comcast.net) has joined #raspberrypi
[18:40] <ukscone> pity because it would be two projects in one
[18:41] <ukscone> with the same aims
[18:41] <Thorn_> now for mono and QtVisualBasic.Net
[18:42] <DaQatz> I would probably look into python and lua instead
[18:42] <Thorn_> what are you trying to be? reasonable?
[18:42] <Thorn_> :P
[18:47] <ukscone> well i do want lua and egsl would be great but BASIC256 just appeals on so many levels (brandy (with grpahics and sound) would be nice too
[18:48] <ukscone> Qt4 might not too bad on the r-pi though because of the gpu and i think ram would be okish too
[18:52] <DaQatz> There's qt4 on cell phones so.
[18:54] <ukscone> that's embedded qt4 which is missing a few widgets and stuff i think
[18:54] <ukscone> might not be the ones that basic256 uses i'll have to check
[18:57] <ukscone> Riot police take a break with a game of ROUNDERS... using their truncheons as bats
[18:57] <ukscone> lol
[19:00] <ReggieUK> that's not a break, that's training
[19:01] <IT_Sean> heh
[19:05] <ukscone> it's only training if the ball is someones bollocks
[19:06] <ReggieUK> rioters are getting younger each year...

[19:06] <ukscone> :)

[22:22] <ahven> that's interesting
[22:22] <ahven> the news today is two-way wifi :)
[22:26] <IT_Sean> you young punks don't know how good you have it. Why, back in my day, we only had one-way wifi. And we had to walk 5 miles to get it. In the snow. Uphill both ways. Barefoot.
[22:27] <ahven> :P
[22:28] <ahven> hmm, has anyone mentioned any screw holes on the PCB?
[22:28] <DaQatz> If you want real fun try 2 way wifi.
[22:28] <DaQatz> \3
[22:29] <ahven> aah, my bad

[22:52] <ukscone> IT_Sean: we had this discussion last saturday but that episode was pretty good
