[1:46] <PiBot> ukscone| <ukscone> SIMULATE alien abduction by scrolling out from your location on Google Streetview with a finger up your bum. lol
[1:47] <WASDx> PiBot: haha
[1:48] <ReggieUK> it's a bot, showing your appreciation is futile
[1:51] * Skummel pets PiBot and says with the same voice you use when talking to babies "oh you are a nice bot"
[1:52] <WASDx> maybe bots have feelings too :(

[5:55] <DaQatz> Please excuse the absence of pibot. Someone at home thought it would be a good idea to shutdown all my systems. Incluing my server.
[5:59] <piofcube> DaQatz... Be honest, you needed the socket for the xmas tree lights ;-)
[6:00] <DaQatz> Well, just a little annoyed.
[6:00] <DaQatz> Since that means I completely lack access to my systems till after the new year.
[6:01] <piofcube> One of the reasons I shifted all my computers up into the loft... Less change chance of pully-wrong-plug for vacuum and other distractions.
[6:01] <piofcube> -change... hmm auto typo :S
[6:02] <DaQatz> The only way for this to happen. Is for someone to go into my room and pull the plugs
[6:03] <DaQatz> A room that well said person has no reason to be in.
[6:03] <DaQatz> Since he lacks the passwords. He would also have to literally have to pull the plugs to shut them down.
[6:05] <piofcube> Not good for the PCs... Seen many a file get killed that way... Often a Windows system file or two
[6:07] <DaQatz> Yeah
[6:07] <DaQatz> And that is one of the reasons I'm annoyed.
[6:16] <piofcube> I wonder if the IOIO for Android would be a good interface between a mobile and the R-Pi... Just getting some stuff together for projects.
[6:32] <DaQatz> Hmmm
[6:32] <DaQatz> Not familar with IOIO
[6:33] <DaQatz> Oh hmm I see to do through r-pi's io pins.
[6:34] <DaQatz> Sounds a little cumbersome to me.
[6:34] <DaQatz> Though may work well, it depends on what you're trying to do.

[18:11] <Thorn_> i thought the old forum was bad
[18:12] <Thorn_> but wow
[18:12] <Thorn_> this is terrible
[18:13] <merlin1991> yeah
[18:13] <merlin1991> it seems like the original layout of that particular forum was meant for about the width the whole thing currently has
[18:14] <merlin1991> only that the page wastes like 150px on each side for a white bar
[18:15] <Thorn_> the colours are garish too
[18:15] <Thorn_> well, gash atleast

[22:59] <azalyn> i'm looking for the alan cox thread on the raspberrypi.org forums.. i can't seem to find it.. does anyone know if they've deleted it or something?
[23:00] <azalyn> or maybe they switched to a new url format.. but i still can't find it even with a forum search..
[23:00] * Shish (shish@marigold.shishnet.org) Quit (Ping timeout: 268 seconds)
[23:03] <friggle> there were some comments that some threads seem to currently have been lost
[23:03] <friggle> Alan Cox has commented in several threads, what thread did you mean?
[23:06] * mdavey finally found out what the red wire is for
[23:06] <friggle> mdavey: what's it for? link?
[23:07] <azalyn> friggle: the 'infamous' one where he allegedly criticizes the binary blob for the gpu.
[23:07] <azalyn> i say 'allegedly' because i haven't read it myself of course. i just saw it linked from the article on the register.
[23:07] <mdavey> its to keep us all busy speculating while the team get a well deserved xmas break with family.
[23:09] <azalyn> http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum?mingleforumaction=viewtopic&t=1077.1
[23:09] <friggle> mdavey: :)
[23:09] <azalyn> that's the forum link on the register.
[23:09] <azalyn> seems like the url format has changed, from what i'm seeing on newer threads.. hm
[23:10] <friggle> yes, there was a forum upgrade today
[23:11] * RobinJ (robinj@unaffiliated/robinj) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:12] * acfrazier (~acfrazier@unaffiliated/acfrazier) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:12] <azalyn> today!? just my luck...
[23:12] <azalyn> so if i had clicked the link yesterday, it would've worked
[23:13] <azalyn> hm.. at least if there was a way to convert the thread IDs, but i don't think there is.. the new format seems to be a text format.
[23:13] <azalyn> if i had the title of the thread i'd know what to search for
[23:13] <Dagger3> when was the elreg article posted?
[23:15] <azalyn> the register article? november 28th.
[23:15] <Dagger3> he asks, as if it were actually possible to restrict searches by date... though it seems to sort by creation date
[23:16] * RobinJ (robinj@unaffiliated/robinj) Quit (Excess Flood)
[23:17] * RobinJ (robinj@unaffiliated/robinj) has joined #raspberrypi
[23:17] <Dagger3> and adding multiple terms to the search increases, rather than restricts, the number of results...
[23:17] <friggle> I'm going to guess this is the thread http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/projects-and-collaboration-general/lack-of-broadcom-documentation
[23:17] <mdavey> azalyn: I'd suggest PM'ing or emailing Liz - she can probably convert the url for you. But be aware that they are now on holiday for a few days.
[23:20] <azalyn> i'm in no hurry. i'm just hoping it wasn't deleted or something.
[23:20] <azalyn> by pm i assume you mean on the forum itself? not here on irc?
[23:20] <azalyn> not sure if they hang out here
[23:20] <azalyn> i see "unofficial" in the topic
[23:21] <friggle> azalyn: did you take a look at that thread I just linked? It's very hard to imagine the register were referring to anything else
[23:21] <mdavey> azalyn: afaik, they don't hang out here. And yes, on the forum or liz@rspberrypi.org
[23:21] <Thorn_> they do hang out here
[23:21] <Thorn_> in disguise
[23:21] <Thorn_> supersekret
[23:21] <azalyn> friggle: i'm reading it now. thanks.
[23:21] <Dagger3> http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/projects-and-collaboration-general/lack-of-broadcom-documentation
[23:21] <azalyn> it does in fact look like this might be it.
[23:22] <Dagger3> <-- too busy reading the thread to notice that it was already linked
[23:22] <mdavey> There havn't been any deletes - all the old threads are there - just the urls have changed.
[23:23] <friggle> mdavey: there was some discussion that bugs/issues in the transfer may have meant some are temporarily lost
[23:23] <friggle> maybe all were restored by now
[23:23] <Dagger3> breaking all old links is almost as good as deleting them :/
[23:23] <mdavey> friggle: ah, okay.
[23:23] <friggle> azalyn: view source and search for 1077. Must be the right thread :)
[23:25] <azalyn> ohh, that's clever.
[23:25] <azalyn> the .1 must've been for the post number i'm guessing
[23:25] <azalyn> in the old url format
[23:25] <mdavey> As long as Liz still has the old db, a bunch of apache url rewriting rules could be added.
[23:25] <mdavey> azalyn: the one is the page number, 0 is the first page
[23:25] <azalyn> ah, yeah, that probably makes more sense, mdavey.
[23:26] <azalyn> post number would use a #
[23:26] <mdavey> yes
[23:27] <azalyn> although i have seen strange forums that will link to a page with just that one post on them. which is so weird.
[23:28] <azalyn> anyways, thanks for the help guys.
