[14:41] <PiBot> ukscone| <ukscone> SIMULATE alien abduction by scrolling out from your location on Google Streetview with a finger up your bum. lol
[14:44] <IT_Sean> o.O
[15:06] <piofcube> PayPal support line greatest "On-Hold" hits... Flight of the bumble-bee!
[15:08] <ukscone> heheheheheheheeh just got a bit worried. wondered why my butt suddenly started getting hot in one area. i was sitting on a laptop psu
[15:09] <IT_Sean> wow
[15:09] <IT_Sean> you don't notice the lump of plastic when you sat down?
[15:09] <ukscone> nope, it was on a pillow
[15:09] <IT_Sean> oh
[15:11] <ukscone> not that i would have noticeed anyway as i am still half asleep
[15:12] <ukscone> cat woke me at 3am then wife at 5am (she wanted to know where i had put her crochet bag -- why she thought i'd moved it or why she wanted it at 5am i dunno) and i couldn't get back to sleep
[15:15] <piofcube> I could do with some warmth... Heating is packed up and waiting for boiler-bloke :S
[15:17] <IT_Sean> ick
[15:17] <IT_Sean> my office is cold. But, my office is always cold.
[15:18] <piofcube> I'm thinking about turning all my PCs around so the PSU vents will bathe me in warm air.
[15:18] <IT_Sean> heh
[15:27] <piofcube> Another phone call... this time civil service madness... Staff: "I'm sorry, your account was closed in October, you have to create a new account... we don't deal with new accounts here...." Me: "I was on the phone last week and the account was fine then." Staff: "One moment... oh yes I see it... We can't help you in this department as we only handle new accounts"... Me: "Can I speak to a supervisor?" Staff: "Regarding what?"... I must be
[15:41] <IT_Sean> dammit... i'm hungry.
[15:48] <piofcube> I'm surprised no-one has invented the USB heated keyboard LOL
[15:49] <Stskeeps> never tried a laptop that's doing intense compilation then
[15:50] <IT_Sean> If i play a divx movie on my laptop, it's kayboard get's pretty warm
[15:50] <piofcube> I wonder... how cold do your fingers have to get before the smartphone touchscreens stop registering actions?
[15:53] <ukscone> not a heated keyboard but usb heated gloves http://www.perpetualkid.com/usb-heated-gloves.aspx
[15:53] <piofcube> lol
[15:53] <IT_Sean> I want a USB powered heated blanket
[15:53] <ukscone> i think thinkgeek has a version that is heated and works with capaictive ts's
[15:54] * IT_Sean makes himself a cuppa tea
[15:54] <ukscone> IT_Sean: wow you are a really good magician then.
[15:54] <IT_Sean> hush you
[15:54] * IT_Sean makes a cuppa tea for himself
[15:54] <ukscone> a nice cup of rosie
[16:10] <ReggieUK> PG Tips?

[16:28] * IT_Sean undersamples UnderSampled
[16:29] <UnderSampled> IT_Sean: that's the first time that's happened
[16:29] <UnderSampled> everyone always tries to oversample me
[16:29] <UnderSampled> :P
[16:29] <IT_Sean> hahaha!
[16:29] <ReggieUK> IT_Sean thinks outside the box
[16:29] * IT_Sean does!
[16:30] * IT_Sean wants a raspi
[16:30] <UnderSampled> IT_Sean: you too now?
[16:31] <IT_Sean> aye
[16:31] <UnderSampled> I thought we reserved that for the people who come by saying that it needs bluetooth builtin
[16:32] * IT_Sean goes back to troubleshooting an apparently dead device
[16:32] <IT_Sean> reserved what?
[16:32] <UnderSampled> wanting the raspberry Pi
[16:32] <IT_Sean> why would anyone want inbuilt bluetooth?
[16:32] <IT_Sean> that would drive up both the cost and size of the board
[16:32] <IT_Sean> those that need it can add it via USB
[16:33] <UnderSampled> because they don't realize that the rPi isn't supposed to be super-feature packed
[16:33] <IT_Sean> dingleberries
[16:33] * IT_Sean swears quietly
[16:36] <friggle> well sure, a $25 PC is cool. But wouldn't it be cooler with wifi+4 USB ports+dual gigabit ethernet+bluetooth+a jetpack so I could use it to fly to work
[16:36] <IT_Sean> Yes, but it would cost a damn lot more than $25
[16:37] <IT_Sean> I think when those people come in here and ask that, we should tell them to specify the optional Technology Upgrade Package. It adds all those features for only $1200
[16:38] <IT_Sean> (plus tax, titles, registry fees, shipping fees, added fees fee, processing fee, handling fee, and upgrade fees)
[16:40] <IT_Sean> then we send them a $10 USB hub, a $25 bluetooth dongle, and pocket the extra dosh.
[16:40] <friggle> I don't know when the i.MX53-based Genesi smarttop will be out but that is a nice upgrade over the raspberry pi for those willing to pay a bit more
[16:40] <IT_Sean> define 'a bit more'
[16:40] <friggle> $100 more :)
[16:41] <IT_Sean> that's a bit more than a bit
[16:41] <friggle> sure, but some people are willing to pay that much
[16:41] <friggle> I do agree it would be nice if there was something on the market with a newer CPU and more ram for $50-75
[16:42] <IT_Sean> that's like saying "A Merc S Classe is a nice upgrade from a bicycle, for those willing to pay a bit more"
[16:42] <friggle> IT_Sean: ok, point taken :) some people on the forums are saying they'd be willing to pay ~$100 though
[16:42] <IT_Sean> Fair enough. I'm not one of them though.
[16:43] <IT_Sean> I'm buying a raspi mostly to tinker with. I haven't even got a firmly decided on project in mind. I'm just going to play with it and see what i can come up with. I'll happily spend $25 on something like that. Over $100, not so much.
[16:44] <friggle> I agree. $25/$35 is a nice sweet spot and I hope any theoretical future iterations will avoid price creep while taking advantage of newer technology
[16:44] <IT_Sean> indeed
[16:50] <mdavey> friggle: the thing is, the $100-150 price bracket is very crowded
[16:51] <IT_Sean> the $25 - $35, otoh, isn't

[16:51] * Hoernchen (~dreadlox@osmocom/Hoernchen) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:51] <IT_Sean> and when you keep in mind that it's meant for the education market, that $25 - $35 price point is very attractive
[16:52] <friggle> as we know from the forums and this IRC channel, pretty attractive to geeks and developers too :)
[16:52] <IT_Sean> yes :p
[16:53] <IT_Sean> Why isn't it lunchtime yet?
[16:53] <Thorn_> i'd pay up to $50
[16:53] <mdavey> Thorn_: what for?
[16:53] <IT_Sean> a shag.
[16:53] <Thorn_> i dunno, i heard people talking prices so jumped in (i just woke up)
[16:53] <IT_Sean> :p
[16:53] <friggle> I'd like to see a pandaboard for more like $100 though. Or at least 100GBP. Mouser have it as ~??125 and presumably that's without VAT
[16:54] <IT_Sean> That Very Annoying Tax can be very annoying, can't it?
[16:56] <UnderSampled> friggle: you can get a beaglebone for 90USD
[16:57] <UnderSampled> just add a hdmi connector, and you've got pretty good computer
[16:57] <Thorn_> people keep talking about this beaglebone
[16:57] * Thorn_ googles
[16:59] <traeak> UnderSampled how much for the hdmi connector for the beaglebone?
[16:59] <Thorn_> that'll be another $199
[17:00] * Dienyddio (~Dienyddio@pdpc/supporter/active/dienyddio) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[17:00] <traeak> prolly
[17:00] <traeak> hmm
[17:00] <Hoernchen> no dsp on the bone :/
[17:01] <Thorn_> HD video capable TMS320C64x+ DSP for versatile signal processing at up to 430MHz ?
[17:01] <Thorn_> oh wait
[17:01] <Thorn_> im reading the wrong thing
[17:01] <Hoernchen> yes
[17:01] <Hoernchen> http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/am3358.pdf for the bone
[17:01] <Thorn_> it's white
[17:04] <UnderSampled> traeak: you can get a through hole hdmi connector for $4.44 on digikey
[17:04] <UnderSampled> http://search.digikey.com/us/en/products/1746679-1/A35075-ND/1246897
[17:04] <traeak> UnderSampled the beaglebone doesn't require a daughterboard for that?
[17:04] <traeak> UnderSampled not that i've looked much at beaglebone
[17:04] <UnderSampled> I don't know
[17:05] <UnderSampled> my guess is that the soc might output hdmi directly
[17:05] <UnderSampled> but I don't know
[17:05] <UnderSampled> it's also possible that they'll sell a "shield" with hdmi on it
[17:05] <UnderSampled> of course that will cost more
[17:05] <friggle> UnderSampled: I believe that's the plan, but they're call it a 'cape'
[17:05] <friggle> *they
[17:06] <UnderSampled> my guess is $25 for a hdmi cape
[17:06] <ukscone> anyone having problems with loading dm's on twitter?
[17:07] <IT_Sean> i'm not
[17:07] <IT_Sean> most likely because i don't use twitter
[17:08] <ukscone> heh
[17:08] <traeak> what\'s twitter?
[17:08] <IT_Sean> it's one of those internet things.
[17:09] <ukscone> i cretaed an account in 2008 because well i always do when i see a beta or something but never actually used it until about may this year as I needed an account with data in it for a project for a client
[17:09] <IT_Sean> it lets it's users (which i call 'twits') irritate one another
[17:09] <ukscone> so i just kind of stayed as i sometimes win a quiz or two and get free stuff
[17:09] <traeak> IT_Sean: sounds cool, i guess
[17:10] <traeak> so it's like even less useful than that facebook dealy then ?
[17:10] <IT_Sean> yes.
[17:10] <traeak> which isn't very useful btw
[17:10] <IT_Sean> no.
[17:10] <traeak> it's a good place to post family pictures, that's about it
[17:11] <traeak> althoguh im sure there's better places to post pics
[17:11] <friggle> google picasa
[17:11] <traeak> they didn't shut that down?
[17:11] <Hoernchen> twitter.. /dev/null for cellphones
[17:12] <friggle> traeak: not yet
[17:12] <ukscone> Hoernchen: i don't have a cellphone that can do twitter, or anything else for that matter, heck it hardly makes calls
[17:13] <IT_Sean> I have two mobile devices that are twitter capable. I've never twitted though.
[17:16] <Crazytails> IT_Sean-> tweeted
[17:16] <IT_Sean> same difference
[17:16] <Crazytails> I used to use twitter a lot but now I don't anymore.
[17:17] <ukscone> twitted, twatted, tweeted all the same thing
[17:18] <Crazytails> Yes, some of my high school friends that used twitter referred to themselves as 'twatters'. I was like... uh you do know what twat means right?
[17:19] <IT_Sean> heh

[20:59] * traeak throws things (especially computers)
[20:59] * duckinator catches the computers and installs archlinux on all of them
[21:00] <traeak> hmm
[21:00] <traeak> i'm pissed they don't seem to care about /usr installed on a separate partition
[21:00] <traeak> arch pisses me off because the developers don't accomodate very well, stubborn bastards
[21:01] <traeak> and yes i'm running it on....6 machines here in the office
[21:01] <traeak> and one with windows7
[21:01] <traeak> heh
[21:02] <duckinator> traeak: what do you mean "don't accommodate very well"? not sure what you mean ^^

[21:17] <traeak> every other distro out there ships libusb-compat based on the old code base
[21:17] <traeak> arch devs decided to use wrapper
[21:17] <traeak> wrapped doesn't work, especially with USB security dongles
[21:17] <traeak> the developers blew me off on that
[21:17] <traeak> and hard
[21:18] <duckinator> hmm, i've never had issues with it. but i also don't use very complex USB devices :)
[21:18] <traeak> they've broken /usr on a separate partition
[21:18] <traeak> and they said they won't even deal with fixing it, and wil close any bugs filed against it
[21:18] <traeak> i happen to put /usr on an lvm
[21:18] <traeak> anyways
[21:19] <traeak> i never had these complaints with gentoo
[21:19] <traeak> gentoo...other complaints, yeah
[21:19] <duckinator> i can't say i've ever seen /usr on a separate partition, personally, but then again i usually use archlinux on everything... :P
[21:19] <traeak> duckinator: how long have you been running unixes?
[21:20] <duckinator> i've been using linux for about 5 or 6 years (not very long compared to other people, i'm sure), and have played with different BSDs a bit but not paid any attention to the FS layouts

[22:57] <UnderSampled> ukscone: how so?
[22:59] <ukscone> UnderSampled: dunno but i was warned that you were cheating at the quiz :D
[23:00] <ukscone> i prefer to think of it as using initiative
[23:00] <ukscone> :D
[23:00] <UnderSampled> :)
[23:00] <UnderSampled> I was just asking of other people knew the answer
[23:00] <UnderSampled> which is up to them if they want to answer
[23:00] <ukscone> :)
[23:00] <ukscone> did anyone?
[23:01] <ukscone> got the answer to Q10 yet?
[23:01] <UnderSampled> well, I only asked emdayvee
[23:01] <UnderSampled> and he decided not to tell me
[23:01] <UnderSampled> and, no. no answer to 10 yet
[23:02] <ukscone> yup i actually think your best bet on the book one would be to ask a limey in the er 33 to 46 year range
[23:02] <ukscone> year old range
[23:02] <UnderSampled> what's a "limey"?
[23:02] <ukscone> oy vey
[23:03] <ukscone> limey == english person
[23:03] <UnderSampled> interesting, never heard that one
[23:03] <traeak> or "european" :-p
[23:04] <ukscone> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limey
[23:04] <UnderSampled> US slang, eh?
[23:04] <ukscone> traeak: no not european. we have other namees for foreigners
[23:05] <UnderSampled> obviously not my in my area's usage
[23:05] <ukscone> UnderSampled: not as far as i know but more like worldwide slang
[23:05] <UnderSampled> well

[23:35] <ukscone> ah tee shirt, shorts and flip flops weather
[23:35] <ahven> oh the memories, 187 lockdown
[23:35] <UnderSampled> ukscone: really? I think it's rather chilly :P
[23:36] <ukscone> nah it's nice -- i like it nippy
[23:36] <UnderSampled> don't need a jacket though
[23:36] <UnderSampled> we have people down here who wear flipflops year round
[23:36] <UnderSampled> I think they're crazy
[23:37] <UnderSampled> /usr/include/features.h:323:26: fatal error: bits/predefs.h: No such file or directory
[23:37] <ahven> I really should hijack PiBot and just replace the letter F with a C - nobody would notice :)
[23:37] <UnderSampled> ukscone: that's while following your scratchbox guite
[23:37] <UnderSampled> *guide
[23:38] <UnderSampled> ahven: hmm, I think I might want to say indoors to day - 52 degrees is a bit too much for me
[23:40] <ahven> 100C is the boiling temperature for water, it's funny to hear US people saying "it's a hundred degrees outside" :)
[23:42] <UnderSampled> yeah, a hundred degrees Farenheight is nothing
[23:46] <ahven> damn youtube, keeping me away from sleep, once again
[23:47] <ahven> interesting content pops always up in the middle of the night :P
[23:49] <UnderSampled> ahven: If I were the person who made the temperature scale, I'd go from 0 being freezing (like Celsius) to 100 being average body temperature
[23:49] <UnderSampled> I'd still use Celsius for cooking and chemestry though
[23:50] <UnderSampled> but freezing to body temp makes sense for measuring comfort levels
[23:51] <traeak> 100F is horse blood temp i *think*
[23:53] <UnderSampled> apparently, freezing and boiling are exactly 180 degrees apart in Fahrenheit
[23:54] <traeak> hmm
[23:54] <traeak> at sea level sure
[23:54] <UnderSampled> well I used the term "exactly" because that's what wikipedia
[23:54] <UnderSampled> used
[23:54] <UnderSampled> I think they weren't quite thinking about what "exactly" means

[23:55] <traeak> heh
[23:55] <Thorn_> rivetting story chaps
[23:57] <ahven> raspi would be probably a good thermometer - if the GPU seems cold, you have a fever :)
