[0:00] <des2> Picard is better than Shatner ?
[0:00] <mchou> lol

[0:00] <mchou> that's kirk to you, my man
[0:00] <strigel_> anyone here have the xonar st?
[0:01] <strigel_> seriously, how did he make it with a name like Shatner
[0:01] <mchou> strigel_: by over-emoting
[0:01] <strigel_> if you did a shatner in those tight trousers it would be quite a clean up

[0:02] <strigel_> mchou: and judicious use of the pregnant. pause.
[0:02] <randomuser> How is this #raspberrypi and not ##raspberrypi ?
[0:02] <mchou> strigel_: he _looked_ pregnant
[0:03] <[deXter]> randomuser, Because no one complained. :)
[0:03] <strigel_> someone explain the ## thing?
[0:03] <[deXter]> ## is meant for unofficial channels and # for official ones
[0:03] <SpeedEvil> ## channels are uno
[0:03] <SpeedEvil> ...
[0:04] <strigel_> there will be men with sticks coming to crack heads soon
[0:04] <randomuser> heh
[0:04] <randomuser> someone should get ahead of that
[0:04] <mchou> gonna go clockwork orange
[0:05] <RITRedbeard> I don't get it.
[0:05] <RITRedbeard> What tag is Explorer editing/reading?
[0:05] <RITRedbeard> Album artist is specified.
[0:05] <traeak> RITRedbeard: hmm...first i ever heard about that with halflife2
[0:05] <mchou> Explorer??
[0:05] <mchou> wtf
[0:06] * chris_99 (~chris_99@unaffiliated/chris-99/x-3062929) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:06] <[deXter]> RITRedbeard, I suggest you redo all your tags using Mp3tag.. it's great at fixing such issues
[0:07] * magn3ts (u214@pdpc/supporter/professional/magn3ts) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:07] * PiBot sets mode +v magn3ts
[0:07] <mchou> [deXter]: Mp3tag is way to laborious
[0:07] <mchou> too*
[0:07] <RITRedbeard> it looks great in foobar but on the Clip+ or explorer it does not like
[0:07] <[deXter]> mchou, it supports batch processing
[0:07] <mchou> [deXter]: picard is way better
[0:08] <[deXter]> hmm, never tried picard
[0:08] <mchou> picard tagging is systemized and complete
[0:09] <[deXter]> what does it do better than mp3tag?
[0:09] <mchou> would take me too long to explain
[0:09] <[deXter]> Well, just tell me the best feature then
[0:09] <mchou> just try it, I promise you won't regret it
[0:09] * Cemial (~hardcoreB@ip4da2366d.direct-adsl.nl) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:09] <mchou> [deXter]: ever heard of musicbrainz?
[0:10] <[deXter]> Lol okay
[0:10] <[deXter]> yeah
[0:10] <[deXter]> I use the database sometimes
[0:10] <[deXter]> but it's mostly useless for me
[0:10] <mchou> ever see all taggs tied to a song in MB?
[0:10] <mchou> tags*
[0:10] <strigel_> gonna make me a high end portable player / recorder when I get my first pi
[0:11] <[deXter]> "tags tied to song in mb"?
[0:11] <mchou> yeah
[0:11] <[deXter]> what do you mean
[0:11] <mchou> all tags a song has in MB
[0:11] * Martix (~martix@134.89.broadband12.iol.cz) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:11] <mchou> crap man
[0:12] <mchou> i can't believe I'm explaining something so basic
[0:12] <mchou> just try picard and get over it
[0:12] <[deXter]> Well I'm not sure what you're trying to explain? O.o
[0:12] <philh> RITRedbeard, so explorer presents files by metadata thesedays?
[0:12] <[deXter]> okay, checking out picard now
[0:12] <strigel_> does he look cute?
[0:13] <mchou> [deXter]: what the hell is so foreign a concept to you about all tags a song has in MB?
[0:13] <strigel_> mchou: well I don't understand that either
[0:13] <mchou> strigel_: if you know what musicbrainz is why the hell are you even asking??
[0:13] <[deXter]> mchou, I'm not understanding what you're saying.. are you saying that MB has like a ton of tags that only picard can use/find?
[0:14] <mchou> no
[0:14] * RITRedbeard__ (RITReadbea@t410xx.student.rit.edu) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:14] * PiBot sets mode +v RITRedbeard__
[0:14] <mchou> I'm saying the schema is well defined at MB, and picard batch tags all the crap for you
[0:14] <strigel_> ok, sorry for saying but what you said doesn't make any sense to me. Just trying to help
[0:14] * RITRedbeard (RITReadbea@t410xx.student.rit.edu) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:14] <strigel_> don't be angry
[0:14] <mchou> wtf
[0:15] <[deXter]> mchou, okay, lemme try batch tagging my collection using MB/picard :)
[0:15] <mchou> even provides lyrics
[0:16] * philh apt-gets picard to prod at
[0:16] <RITRedbeard__> apparently it is an issue between tag styles
[0:17] <mchou> do just one song first
[0:17] <RITRedbeard__> which does the clip+ like?
[0:17] <mchou> depending on size of your collection it can take a long time
[0:17] <[deXter]> true
[0:18] <strigel_> ok, now I get it. this is awesome
[0:18] <mchou> shit man
[0:18] * warddr (~warddr@Wikipedia/Warddr) Quit (Quit: Ik ga weg)
[0:18] <RITRedbeard__> oh
[0:19] <RITRedbeard__> okay I guess I just have to force ID3v2
[0:19] <[deXter]> okay first folder I tried, no results
[0:20] <mchou> no results? you get those files from torrent?
[0:20] * DDave (~DDave@unaffiliated/ddave) Quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[0:20] <strigel_> I don't think it's going to find your German Death Metal dexter..
[0:20] <mchou> lol
[0:20] <[deXter]> strigel_, Not german death metal, but psychedelic
[0:20] <strigel_> lol
[0:21] <mchou> strigel_: umm, I have very wierd taste in music, and it's rare someting is not already in MB
[0:21] <[deXter]> What's the difference between "lookup" and "scan" ?
[0:21] <[deXter]> and what the heck is cluster?
[0:21] <mchou> oh crap
[0:22] * SkoZombie (~quassel@60-240-15-173.tpgi.com.au) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:22] <philh> i guess scan produces a fingerprint from the audio content of the file to match against the mb database, not sure about lookup
[0:22] <mchou> cluster means "attempt to link to album"
[0:22] * iccanobif (iccanobif@host14-126-dynamic.20-79-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit ()
[0:22] <[deXter]> oh
[0:22] <mchou> scan means scan cd and generate fingerprint
[0:22] <strigel_> works great for me..
[0:22] <philh> i just scanned some oggs
[0:22] <philh> that seemed to work
[0:22] <strigel_> does it support batched scans
[0:23] <[deXter]> and "lookup" tries to match the scanned fingerprints?
[0:23] <traeak> i usually boil my oggs
[0:23] <philh> i click the cluster button first
[0:23] <mchou> yup, select the parent folder
[0:23] <mchou> scans everything under that
[0:23] <strigel_> well when I clicked scan, it triggered my firewall, so scan talks to MB it seems
[0:23] <mchou> indeed
[0:23] <philh> tbh, i haven't actually ripped anything that didn't get a successful lookup from soundjuicer, so picard is a little superfluous
[0:24] <mchou> soundjuicer??
[0:24] * SkoZombie (~quassel@60-240-15-173.tpgi.com.au) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:24] * PiBot sets mode +v SkoZombie
[0:24] <mchou> isnt that abandonware?
[0:24] <philh> no idea, it was the gnome cd ripper, it's still in a current ubuntu
[0:24] <mchou> lol
[0:25] <mchou> go look up last activity in source repo
[0:25] <GabrialDestruir> abandonware, interesting term
[0:25] <strigel_> I have always used razorlame + freedb, but this is great for stuff I 'acquired' elsewhere and haven't tagged properly
[0:25] <mchou> freedb is lame
[0:25] <des2> Lots of Linux abandonware
[0:25] <philh> i used to use grip, but my CDs are in a better state thesedays, so it's less necessary
[0:25] <strigel_> mchou: yes, it's crap, but mostly picks up my stuff
[0:26] <philh> besides, i hear that cdparanoia's not to be trusted anymore
[0:26] <strigel_> I am not into prog death psychadelica
[0:26] <strigel_> philh: lol
[0:26] <mchou> strigel_: there's no "system" at freedb. too freewheeling....
[0:26] <[deXter]> mchou, After I did a lookup, some tracks are highlighted in pink.. I don't notice any change. What does this mean?
[0:26] <RITRedbeard__> I found the issue
[0:26] * RITRedbeard__ is now known as RITRedbeard
[0:26] <markus_> hello linux hackers.
[0:26] <markus_> sudo cowsay WelcMOoOne! >> /etc/issue

[0:26] * PiBot sets mode +v Hexxeh
[0:26] <strigel_> mchou: clearly MB is the best, you win, but I wasn't fighting :)
[0:26] <markus_> how can i write that in one line so i don't get permission denied?
[0:27] <mchou> [deXter]: colors mean likelihood the track is matched to the proper tag
[0:27] * Hopsy (~Hopsy@ip6-27-210-87.adsl2.static.versatel.nl) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:27] <philh> rubyripper's ok, but for a bug which means that it takes a 30 minute break between tracks...
[0:27] <slaeshjag> markus_: /etc/issue exists?
[0:27] <[deXter]> mchou, Ah okay
[0:27] <strigel_> I am a Linux user but I heard EAC > cdparanoia
[0:27] * bolosaur (u5293@gateway/web/irccloud.com/x-nlrujpocikxgvnpf) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:27] * PiBot sets mode +v bolosaur
[0:27] <philh> yeah, well EAC is still maintained
[0:27] <des2> EAC is the standard all others are judged by
[0:28] <philh> the closest to EAC on linux is rubyripper
[0:28] <[deXter]> markus_, su -c "cowsay WelcMOoOne! >> /etc/issue"
[0:28] <philh> you can even set the offset
[0:28] <markus_> slaeshjag: yes
[0:28] <markus_> [deXter]: thanks. you circumvented sudo
[0:28] <strigel_> markus: su -c "cowsay WelcMOoOne! >> /etc/issue"
[0:28] <strigel_> try that

[0:29] <[deXter]> Is there an echo in here?
[0:29] <strigel_> f*ck I can't read
[0:29] <strigel_> sorry deXter
[0:29] <[deXter]> :)
[0:29] <des2> there is an echo in here ?
[0:30] <strigel_> here...here...here
[0:31] <markus_> strigel_: thanks that works too since it's identical to what [deXter] wrote :)
[0:31] <markus_> oh i see you already noticed hehe
[0:31] <strigel_> I was so busy copy/pasting your command I missed deXter's
[0:32] <strigel_> now it looks like I'm just copying him :(
[0:32] <strigel_> I'm glad you found your solution, but what made you come this chan for linux help :/
[0:32] <markus_> I'm playing a bit with my cubox (armv7) box. I want a nice greeting when i connect to it.
[0:33] <strigel_> ahah
[0:33] <markus_> i was here already and i thought nobody would mind
[0:33] <des2> We don't mind if you play with your cubox as long as we don't have to watch
[0:34] <strigel_> Nah, I don't mean someone minds, it's just a smart place to ask for linux help

[0:34] <[deXter]> Hey, what you do with your cubox is your own business. :P
[0:35] <markus_> des2: what if i force you to idle here for all infinity and don't even let you go to the bathroom?
[0:35] <markus_> i don't think i have any chance of enforcing it
[0:35] <markus_> hehe
[0:35] <strigel_> ooookaaay
[0:36] <markus_> excuse me.. my excuse is.. it's getting late here
[0:36] <markus_> it's 00:35
[0:36] <strigel_> Germany, righ?
[0:36] <markus_> It could be but Sweden
[0:36] <markus_> same time zone though, and poland as well
[0:37] <strigel_> London here, 23:36
[0:37] <strigel_> still two beers remaining...
[0:37] * rafal (~rafal@ip-78-30-123-139.free.aero2.net.pl) Quit (Ping timeout: 248 seconds)
[0:37] <markus_> hehe... so are you using GMT / UTC / BST or something else?
[0:38] <strigel_> all three
[0:38] * lars_t_h (~lars_t_h@002129082206.mbb.telenor.dk) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:38] <strigel_> at the moment
[0:38] <strigel_> until next weekend
[0:38] <markus_> but not all of them are the same
[0:38] <[deXter]> It's 12:37 over here :)
[0:38] <markus_> not always at least
[0:38] <strigel_> well strictly you can't be on BST until BST kicks in, but right now they're the same
[0:39] <strigel_> I'll be robbed of my hour next week
[0:39] * Cracknel (~cracknel@unaffiliated/cracknel) Quit (Quit: Leaving)
[0:39] <strigel_> do you have DST up there in snowland?
[0:39] <des2> The PI doesn't have a real time clock. Time is irrelevant.
[0:40] <strigel_> or is it 6 months light, 6 months dark
[0:40] <strigel_> des2: is that the message from RS?
[0:41] <SoulShadow> us here in murika were already robbed
[0:42] * ukscone (~Russell@cpe-68-173-234-162.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Read error: No route to host)

[0:43] <strigel_> yes, those were the odds. New term to me, but there is a village in estonia too :)
[0:43] <SoulShadow> they have internet is estonia?!
[0:43] <SoulShadow> :p
[0:43] <strigel_> no idea, but the girls are supposed to be hot
[0:43] <mchou> dws, I believe it has an RTC but it just needs an oscillator
[0:44] * antenagora (~antenagor@host230-181-dynamic.5-87-r.retail.telecomitalia.it) Quit (Remote host closed the connection)
[0:44] <SoulShadow> well what more do they have to do all day than care for their looks if they have no internets, strigel_
[0:44] <mchou> des2: I believe it has an RTC but it just needs an oscillator
[0:44] <RITRedbeard> hmmm
[0:44] <RITRedbeard> my music barely fits on my clip+
[0:44] <mchou> and a battery backup, of course
[0:44] * rafal_ (~rafal@ip-78-30-111-101.free.aero2.net.pl) Quit (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[0:45] <SoulShadow> my music wouldn't fit on a sansa device, RITRedbeard
[0:45] <SoulShadow> know how i know? i have one :p

[0:45] <strigel_> I honestly have no idea what people do who don't have the internet
[0:45] <sqrt[evil]> something productive?
[0:45] <des2> lol
[0:46] <mchou> sqrt[evil]: truth

[0:46] <strigel_> sqrt[evil]: hmm well, lets deal with an example: my wife used to watch TV all day until I got her a laptop. Now she spends my money on eBay all day.
[0:46] <mchou> haha
[0:46] <strigel_> so, not necessarily
[0:46] <traeak> sqrt[evil]: double edged sword. for research (read stealing algorithms) access to the internet is great
[0:46] <mchou> fleabay
[0:46] <sqrt[evil]> lolol
[0:47] * ukscone (~Russell@cpe-68-173-234-162.nyc.res.rr.com) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[0:47] <des2> "The expectation is that non-network connected units will have their clocks updated manually at startup. Adding an RTC is surprisingly expensive, once you?ve factored in batteries, area and componentry and would have pushed us above our target price. You can add one yourself using the GPIO pins if you?re after an interesting electronics project."
[0:47] <sqrt[evil]> yeah i agree, i really couldn't honestly tell you if i'm more or less productive due to the internet

[0:48] <mchou> des2: that just means go desolder the battery and xtal from an old mobo :)
[0:48] <rvalles> DES2: RTC sorta implies battery, which is quite the problem.
[0:48] * MenDin (~Win@109.123.117.122) Quit (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[0:48] <strigel_> on the one hand, the internet shows us how we really are. Look at the availability of porn. Does it corrupt society? Perhaps, or perhaps it accelerates us towards our pre-dermined and lawful decay
[0:49] <strigel_> having said that, charities like Oxfam are really using internet + social networking to affect real change in the supply chain of conglomerates where their behaviour impacts the environment
[0:49] * jthunder (~jthunder@174.3.126.51) has joined #raspberrypi
[0:50] * PiBot sets mode +v jthunder
[0:50] <SpeedEvil> strigel_: I have real questions about that.
[0:50] <SpeedEvil> They are hitting the obvious points.
[0:50] <mchou> strigel_: you mean Apple :)
[0:50] <SpeedEvil> For example - Nokia, Apple, ...
[0:50] * strigel_ puts on a tin hat

[0:50] <SpeedEvil> All the shiny stuff.
[0:50] <traeak> rpi is alomst 100% internet marketing
[0:50] <strigel_> I'm out of this discussion before it starts :)
[0:50] <SpeedEvil> They are not covering the supply chain of stuff which sells for under $10
[0:50] <mchou> haha
[0:51] <mchou> SpeedEvil: you mean $35 + shipping :)
[0:51] <SpeedEvil> They can make nice press releases 'we made apple do...'
[0:51] <SpeedEvil> They can't make nice press releases out of 'we made factory 549 do'
[0:51] <mchou> SpeedEvil: I'm not so sure your assertion is true, btw
[0:51] <strigel_> SpeedEvil: it's not utopia, you're right, but for the first time I see the shoots of progressive use of the internet. Take retroshare. There is hope that covert groups can now supplant the ominous encroachment upon civil liberties by governments and law enforcement agencies
[0:52] <markus_> strigel_: yup, not yet though :P
[0:52] <mchou> SpeedEvil: lead paint in toys, <10/unit
[0:52] <SpeedEvil> mchou: Lead paint in toys was not lead by oxfam et al.
[0:52] <mchou> no, I wasn't referring to oxfam in particular

[0:56] <mchou> wonder if foxconn was the contract manufacturer for RPi
[0:56] <des2> I think they're busy at the moment
[0:56] <mchou> no doubt some works committing suicide over 10K rework
[0:57] <mchou> workers*
[0:57] <des2> They said it was smaller than foxcon
[0:57] <mchou> I know I'd jump
[0:57] <sqrt[evil]> they'd have to get a special concession from foxconn for such a small order
[0:57] <des2> So it wasn't foxconn.
[0:58] <mchou> the funny thing is foxconn is consider the best place to work in China right now
[0:58] <Lord_DeathMatch> huh
[0:58] <mchou> anybody else has to be even worse
[0:58] <traeak> mchou: depends...from what i understand intel is pretty aweseom to work for

[1:08] <tran4> I'm a senior CS undergrad. I applied to a company for co-op and intern positions: http://pastebin.com/LdAH6eaZ Are they good? Should I respond to the recruiter about this job or wait and see if the company contacts me? I applied thru both. The recruiter's ad lists $14/hr. I live with my parents and they want me to get some work experience this summer. I havent had many replies.
[1:09] <des2> smegma maybe but not schema.
[1:09] <SoulShadow> why would you post that in RPI
[1:09] <SoulShadow> why does anyone in here care
[1:09] <SoulShadow> lol
[1:09] <sqrt[evil]> tran4: my advice is definitely take *a* co-op opportunity
[1:10] <sqrt[evil]> don't waste that chance to gain valuable experience, it will help you immensely once you graduate
[1:10] <sqrt[evil]> and expect to be underpaid for it
[1:10] <mchou> tran4: word to sqrt[evil]
[1:10] <strigel_> des2: leave your preferences out of it man

[1:11] <mchou> tran4: it all depends on where and who you get to hang out with
[1:11] <sqrt[evil]> if you can land a decent job on your own though it doesn't matter

[1:21] <mchou> I'm not joking by the way
[1:21] <mchou> I watched one panhandler for about half an hour
[1:21] <mchou> dude collected over $100
[1:21] <traeak> i co=op'd one session and from that learned that i would be horrible as a traditional engineer :-p
[1:21] <sqrt[evil]> pretty sure you wouldn't get that here
[1:22] <traeak> panhandling is relatively hard work
[1:22] <mchou> traeak: you just have to pick the right spot
[1:22] <traeak> mchou: and look the part
[1:22] <mchou> traeak: I'm not saying it isn't hard work
[1:22] <SoulShadow> and get dumb people to give you cash

[1:27] <mchou> that too
[1:27] <traeak> sqrt[evil]: where you at? liquor store means they don't have far to go to spend the money you gave them.

[1:28] <traeak> one reason to live somewhere with a miserable climate is to discourage the panhandlers

[1:43] <mchou> and they knew I was a tourist
[1:43] <mchou> considering I was from NYC I felt like giving them the bird
[1:44] <AdrianG> so ur came all the way to calgary
[1:44] <AdrianG> to get booked for jaywalking
[1:44] <sqrt[evil]> worth it.
[1:44] <mchou> hell yeah!
[1:45] <AdrianG> you disgust me.

[1:46] <AdrianG> it'd get quickly reduced to a slap on the wrist in the canadian courts

[1:48] <sqrt[evil]> well not 'hard', but i always declare anything

[1:48] <sqrt[evil]> yet they still ask annoying questions as if i'm being dishonest
[1:48] <AdrianG> traeak: ur own aircraft?
[1:49] <mchou> sqrt[evil]: like what?
[1:49] <traeak> AdrianG: hell no, but no one goes to ottawa, it was some oversized leer jet type thingy

[1:49] <sqrt[evil]> made me find a ticket stub

[1:50] <sqrt[evil]> another time i went down to pick up a used server i had bought
[1:50] <mchou> sqrt[evil]: you should have said "would you like a souvenir?"

[3:52] <courpse> piofcube, Agreed.
[3:52] <DaQatz> The term pommy, pom or pomme,[1] in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, commonly denotes a person of British (usually of English heritage) origin. A derogatory term
[3:53] <courpse> But we are starting to see more wallabies, :/
[3:53] <shirro> piofcube: Ah, you must shoot them like us then. Seriously though mainly see roos lying dead on the road or about to jump in front of your car. Only seen one jumping down my street once.
[3:53] <[deXter]> It isn't derogatory. Case in point: my embedded systems professor always introduces himself as a pom. :)
[3:53] <piofcube> shirro: makes good dog food.. better than you'd get in a tin here
[3:53] <courpse> AU pays decent money for dead wallabies.
[3:54] <DaQatz> In the US derogatory terms for the british are "Limies" and "Tea swillers"
[3:54] <courpse> Which is kinda odd, they pay more for live ones, but thats not as amusign to me.

[4:10] <Scott_S> Yeah, @Ben64, it'd definitely be nice to have the choice. You do have the choice though in Ubuntu, just not by defaul.
[4:10] <sqrt[evil]> i would say the hate for the new start menu layout in win7 is misplaced, but i kidna get why people don't like unity
[4:10] <Ben64> its not a very good choice
[4:10] <sqrt[evil]> it's much less functional and all around a bit..weird..
[4:10] <[deXter]> ^
[4:10] <Ben64> theming breaks when you get rid of unity
[4:11] <shirro> Oh, there goes the window manager. I so hope this doesn't break to badly.
[4:11] <[deXter]> Applications should be easy to find.. you shouldn't have to go to some lens thing and turn on filters and more and blah.
[4:11] <Scott_S> Well, if you remove unity and install Gnome/etc, I believe you get the theming ability back.

[4:11] <Scott_S> Not sure, haven't really done that much.
[4:11] <Ben64> Scott_S: nope
[4:11] <mrdragons> Yeah, and various networking. If I weren't a programmer and couldn't script things myself ubuntu would be hell to customize
[4:11] <Scott_S> Really? Well, then, perhaps they'll add the choice in 12.10 or something.
[4:12] <Ben64> 12.04 should be the solid one : /
[4:12] <sqrt[evil]> 12.04 is LTS right
[4:12] <Ben64> i'm glad i'm testing it on my laptop instead of here

[4:14] <Scott_S> I have a plan to open up an older HDTV, hardwire it into a grounded 5V input, and hope for the best.
[4:14] <SoulShadow> works better in my experience, sqrt[evil]
[4:14] <shirro> I just want to use my tv remote. Scary how the 4yo pauses, selects, jumps back and fwd and changes shows on mythtv with the keyboard

[4:15] <shirro> The 18 month old is pretty good at changing shows as well. He often puts things on by himself. Unfortunately sometimes resets the box as well. He was into the grub menu this monring
[4:15] <RITRedbeard> Couldn't format, do anything.
[4:16] <RITRedbeard> Had to get third party tool because it would always enumerate the device as this weird... thing.
[4:16] <Ben64> hey i don't really use mythtv, but how possible would this be: backend on desktop computer, frontend on different computer (either pi or windows, or both) and be able to play live tv?
[4:16] <PReDiToR> RITRedbeard - Linux is the answer. Having access to dmesg output is fantastic and fdisk is > fdisk.exe
[4:16] <SoulShadow> you need a hdhomerun prime and a windows box, Ben64
[4:16] <sqrt[evil]> RITRedbeard: windows can do that when you've got a bad cable
[4:16] <shirro> we have a really good public broadcaster in australia that shows quality kids tv shows all day with no ads. mythtv is brilliant
[4:16] <Ben64> SoulShadow: why

[4:21] <sqrt[evil]> Ben64: streaming from where?
[4:21] <Ben64> this computer (desktop)
[4:21] <[deXter]> Um, I think it has every top gear episode?
[4:22] <[deXter]> Atleast, all the good parts
[4:22] <Tobias> his computer with a PCI tuner, Ben64
[4:22] <Ben64> over 100mbit to either ras-pi or a windows computer hooked to tv
[4:22] <sqrt[evil]> oh. uhm...you could probably make it work
[4:22] <sqrt[evil]> no idea how
[4:22] <Tobias> I'd say you could make it work
[4:22] <Ben64> i never really use mythtv
[4:22] <RITRedbeard> Anyone here fondly remember X-COM: UFO Defense?
[4:22] <RITRedbeard> Probably best game of the mid 90s.
[4:23] <sqrt[evil]> best game of the mind 90s was master of orion
[4:23] <sqrt[evil]> mid*
[4:23] <RITRedbeard> I believe it was called Enemy Unknown abroad/outside america
[4:23] <RITRedbeard> Master Of Orion 2 was pretty good.
[4:23] <RITRedbeard> Except when you were in the middle of a multiplayer game and the thing crashed.
[4:23] <RITRedbeard> No saves.
[4:23] <RITRedbeard> ;_;
[4:24] <sqrt[evil]> lol, i didn't play MOO2 until years later, i don't think the original had multiplayer
[4:24] <RITRedbeard> It didn't.
[4:24] <sqrt[evil]> i think i will go play some civ4 now
[4:24] <sqrt[evil]> <3 sid meier
[4:24] <RITRedbeard> sid meier's PIRATES! Gold!
[4:24] <sqrt[evil]> i played pirates but i don't think i grokked it at the time
[4:24] <sqrt[evil]> i didn't like it as much as civ or colonization
[4:25] <RITRedbeard> ugh-ugh-ugh-ugh-ugh-ugh I surrender!
[4:25] <RITRedbeard> it was a port from another system
[4:25] <RITRedbeard> a lot of good genesis games were ports
[4:25] <sqrt[evil]> was pirates on genesis?!
[4:25] <RITRedbeard> Yep.
[4:25] <sqrt[evil]> i only played pc games

[4:25] <sqrt[evil]> and a tiny bit of snes RPGs
[4:26] <RITRedbeard> It was ported in 16-bit graphical glory
[4:26] <sqrt[evil]> reminds me of starcraft on dreamcast
[4:26] <RITRedbeard> so was Starflight
[4:26] <sqrt[evil]> i think it was dreamcast
[4:26] <sqrt[evil]> how the hell do you use that?!
[4:26] <RITRedbeard> Very carefully.
[4:27] <mkopack> What are we discussing???
[4:27] <RITRedbeard> http://gamesdbase.com/Media/SYSTEM/Sega_Genesis/Snap/big/Pirates!_Gold_-_1993_-_MicroProse_Ltd..jpg
[4:27] <RITRedbeard> The classics.
[4:27] <sqrt[evil]> did they do a new pirates ever?
[4:27] <RITRedbeard> Yes.
[4:27] <mkopack> HAHA, Gold? I remember the ORIGINAL Pirates! by Sid Meier on the C64!
[4:27] <sqrt[evil]> any good?
[4:28] <RITRedbeard> They re-did pirates in about 2006?
[4:28] * Milos|Netbook (Milos@pdpc/supporter/student/milos) Quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[4:28] <RITRedbeard> It was good, actually.
[4:28] <mkopack> Yeah, that sounds about right???
[4:28] <RITRedbeard> There was something that was tricky... maybe the sword fighting mechanic?
[4:28] <sqrt[evil]> wiki says 2004
[4:28] <mkopack> God, Sid is the originator of SOOOO many great games
[4:28] <sqrt[evil]> i kinda want to play it, but i find i can't get past the graphics from 90s games anymore
[4:28] <RITRedbeard> Oh, come on.
[4:29] <mkopack> Railroad Tycoon, Civilization, Pirates, F-15 Strike Eagle....
[4:29] <RITRedbeard> Buck up. With Raspberry Pi we're gonna have graphics from 90s games.
[4:29] <sqrt[evil]> maybe it's more about the ui mechanics...
[4:29] <mkopack> sqrt: you know the best part of those old games?
[4:29] <sqrt[evil]> i still play snes rpgs from time to time
[4:29] <RITRedbeard> My secondary interest is making the Raspberry Pi gaming platform... well, within reason.
[4:29] <RITRedbeard> I brought up X-COM because either people never heard of it or they loved every grueling second of it.
[4:29] <sqrt[evil]> mkopack: did you see that video of sid doing a 24 hour gaming competition at his son's school?
[4:29] <mkopack> BECAUSE the graphics were crummy, they had to focus on the GAMEPLAY, and it forced us to use our imagination a bit
[4:30] <RITRedbeard> sqrt[evil], yeah that was cool, what is his alma mater?
[4:30] <mkopack> Oh, yeah, I didn't realize he did X-Com
[4:30] <RITRedbeard> university michigan?
[4:30] <RITRedbeard> he didn't
[4:30] <RITRedbeard> microprose did
[4:30] <RITRedbeard> :)
[4:30] <sqrt[evil]> TIL he's canadian
[4:30] <mkopack> ah
[4:30] <sqrt[evil]> michigan is right
[4:30] <mkopack> Hell I remember reading the story of how he came up with Railroad tycoon...

[4:31] <RITRedbeard> I asked about X-Com because there is an open source project that lets you play multiplayer against another human or AI
[4:31] <sqrt[evil]> RR tycoon is so damn hard
[4:32] <mkopack> Xcom took FOREVER to play, and I found it really frustrating
[4:32] <RITRedbeard> It's been out for a long time but last time I checked (5-6 years ago it wasn't so stable)
[4:32] <sqrt[evil]> a while back i tried to learn using freeTTD or whatever it's called
[4:32] <sqrt[evil]> never played xcom
[4:32] <RITRedbeard> but I see updates from 2010... so if anyone is interested in playing UF02000/X-Com multiplayer let me know.
[4:32] <mkopack> Oh, that's Transportation Tycoon??? similar concept, but different author and based around all kinds of transportation
[4:32] <mkopack> RRT was strictly trains, from the 1800's forward
[4:32] <sqrt[evil]> ohhh ok
[4:32] <RITRedbeard> mkopack, the tactical combat part?
[4:33] <sqrt[evil]> yeah i recall that now
[4:33] <mkopack> yeah, just drove me NUTS
[4:33] <RITRedbeard> save and save often! :)
[4:33] <RITRedbeard> or send rookies/tanks in
[4:33] <mkopack> Just took too long, and they'd always die too easy
[4:33] <piofcube> I liked Theme Hospital for laughs
[4:34] * SpeedEvil ponders the last PC game he played.
[4:34] <RITRedbeard> mkopack, going on the first crash site is scary.
[4:34] <sqrt[evil]> SpeedEvil: what was it?
[4:34] <RITRedbeard> Loved the music too, all these games had great music for the most part.
[4:34] <SpeedEvil> sqrt[evil]: I'm trying to work it out.
[4:34] <sqrt[evil]> lol. the last new game i played was portal 2
[4:34] <SpeedEvil> Sort of like civilisation - but in space
[4:35] <sqrt[evil]> though i picked up HL2 for a playthrough a couple weeks ago
[4:35] <SpeedEvil> ~1999?
[4:35] <mkopack> Alpha Centauri
[4:35] <mkopack> based on the Civ game engine???
[4:35] <sqrt[evil]> ahh yes alpha centauri was great
[4:35] <sqrt[evil]> or could be one of the MOO sequels
[4:35] <RITRedbeard> Was Alpha Centauri where you could build above in space once you got the technology?
[4:35] <mkopack> I actually really REALLY liked Colonization (also based on the Civ engine)
[4:35] <RITRedbeard> That was really neat.
[4:35] <mkopack> yeah
[4:35] <piofcube> I liked the research/unit build on AlphaC
[4:35] <sqrt[evil]> mkopack: me too, i liked that a lot better than civ
[4:36] <mkopack> MOO was fantastic too
[4:36] <RITRedbeard> One of the Civ games, might have been Centari payed homage to X-Com.
[4:36] <sqrt[evil]> though i don't think it's very well liked among civ fans
[4:36] <RITRedbeard> They had a custom scenario with "ships" being cities on Cydonia.
[4:36] <RITRedbeard> and special units and stuff
[4:36] <RITRedbeard> along with other scenarios as well
[4:36] <SpeedEvil> No, I don't think that was it.
[4:36] <sqrt[evil]> there's also a colonization mod pack for civ4
[4:36] <mkopack> yeah, I know, but I really liked the american rev aspect and I liked how you could specialize people in the cities for doing different things, and you had to deal with the redcoats
[4:36] <sqrt[evil]> bought that but never played it
[4:37] <RITRedbeard> civ4 was pretty good
[4:37] <sqrt[evil]> yeah civ4 is good, i still play it once in a while
[4:37] <sqrt[evil]> havent tried 5 yet
[4:37] <piofcube> setlers was pretty good also
[4:38] <sqrt[evil]> iii was kind of odd
[4:38] <RITRedbeard> I think I played about 4 or 5 games, I recall a 1v1 versus the AI, they were Japan and I played Germany/Chancellor whomever...
[4:38] <sqrt[evil]> but still fun
[4:38] <mkopack> I've heard mixed things about 5??? get it on a sale if you buy it
[4:38] <sqrt[evil]> i'm not really very good lol
[4:38] <RITRedbeard> paradropped so many Panzers per turn into my foothold bwahahaha
[4:38] <sqrt[evil]> the AI in civ4 is also pretty good
[4:38] <RITRedbeard> then the game was about to end because of the year so I said "It's ICBM time!"
[4:38] <sqrt[evil]> i heard in civ5 it doesn't cheat anymore though?
[4:39] <piofcube> I heard civ5 doesn't allow unit stacking
[4:39] <RITRedbeard> I saw pictures in civ5 you can make an archology out of a collection of cities. True or false?
[4:39] <mkopack> The key to civ 4 is get as much land under your control as early as possible. Once you're boxed in, it's tough to get out
[4:39] <RITRedbeard> unit stacking was lame part of the civ games
[4:39] <mkopack> Why? It's an ARMY it SHOULD be able to fight together
[4:40] <RITRedbeard> well, I like the fact that civ 4 had generals
[4:40] <RITRedbeard> but like having a stack of 15 legionares
[4:40] <RITRedbeard> :\
[4:40] <mkopack> I always just got pissed when f'ing Musketmen would get killed by clubmen. WTF???
[4:40] <sqrt[evil]> mkopack: that strategy is best if you're unwilling to engage in early wars
[4:40] <sqrt[evil]> but i find most of the best players don't expand that quickly as it screws up your economy
[4:41] <sqrt[evil]> after watching lots of let's play videos
[4:41] <mkopack> I just hate when I'm starting out and suddenly I can't build anymore cities because the other nations have boxed me in and won't let me cross their borders...
[4:41] <mkopack> Or if they do I end up with far flung cities that are impossible to hold
[4:41] <piless> if you're playing against ai you shouldn't need to build any solders till you have axemen

[4:41] <sqrt[evil]> that's how i played myself until i started reading about how good players play, since i realized i could only beat the AI on like the third difficulty
[4:42] <RITRedbeard> yeah, with my example of legionares, you'd just rush for good production spots, pump up research with hopefully gold spot, and your special unit is in the ancient age...
[4:42] <mkopack> Pop a great artist into a border city and watch your borders expand and overwhelm a neighbor's city :)
[4:42] <sqrt[evil]> hehe
[4:42] <sqrt[evil]> yeah
[4:42] <piless> on civ5 I turn off the free cities, or whatever they're called. they are just a pain in the ass

[4:43] <sqrt[evil]> lol

[5:23] <sqrt[evil]> lol i mean more that it should be managed as public infrastructure
[5:23] <sqrt[evil]> with any isp or service company able to gain access to customers through it
[5:23] <GabrialDestruir> As opposed to completely overhauling them to be more stable
[5:24] <sqrt[evil]> basically spend a few $bn on rolling out FTTH country wide
[5:24] <sqrt[evil]> and allow ISPs or whoever to hook up to the network and sell internet access or tv or whatever to people
[5:25] <mkopack> the problem is that in the US, it's such a large area to upgrade, and there's huge areas where the population density is so low that you'll never get enough people using the service in the area to cover the cost of installing it
[5:25] <sqrt[evil]> yeah, obviously the cityfolk will be subsidizing the country folk
[5:25] <mkopack> That's why these little countries where the population is all clustered in like 3-4 big cities can upgrade all the time
[5:25] <sqrt[evil]> the same thing was done to roll out country wide pots
[5:26] <mkopack> sqrt: and that took DECADES
[5:26] <sqrt[evil]> except that the money was basically given for free to the ILECs
[5:26] <sqrt[evil]> indeed
[5:26] <piofcube> There's some places up in the northern parts of scotland that only recently got wired up for electric
[5:26] <sqrt[evil]> which is why we need to start now
[5:26] <mkopack> hell, my aunt's house in rural PA still had a PARTY line phone with everyone else on their road until I was like 10??? that was 1983!
[5:26] <sqrt[evil]> except this time not throw the money away at a corporation and manage it like public infrastructure
[5:27] <sqrt[evil]> anyway, not going to happen
[5:27] <mkopack> And what happens when the tech changes in 5 years and what you've spent BILLIONS on installing is out of date?
[5:27] <sqrt[evil]> the industry is too big and has too many politicians in its pockets
[5:27] <mkopack> you're in the us, right?
[5:27] <piless> sqrt[evil]: fucking lobbying
[5:27] <sqrt[evil]> canada
[5:27] <mkopack> ah
[5:27] <mkopack> ok, 51st state :)
[5:27] <piless> NO
[5:28] <mkopack> but basically it works the same as here...
[5:28] <piless> uk is the 51st state
[5:28] <shirro> I will be an old man by the time NBN fibre rolls past. And we still won't have Hulu or Netflix and iTunes will still be twice the price of US.
[5:28] <sqrt[evil]> mkopack: you roll out FTTH, which i think has the capacity to do us for the foreseeable future
[5:28] <mkopack> Gov can't do it, so they give incentives to the private companies to do it
[5:28] <sqrt[evil]> i don't see a new 'killer app' for > gbps of data
[5:28] <sqrt[evil]> and if one comes, it should be possible to carry it on the fiber with relatively little investment
[5:28] <mkopack> problem is, they only want to do it where they can sell enough service to make money doing it
[5:28] <sqrt[evil]> the problem is that we're still using 150 year old last mile cabling
[5:28] <sqrt[evil]> so every technological improvement is relatively minimal due to it having to overcome those limitations

[5:29] <shirro> The copper is rotting. Replace it while times are good.
[5:30] <mkopack> Heck, considering the price of the stuff now, and how much people keep stealing it (yes, STEALING copper wiring out of street lamps, and such), the sooner we get away from it the better
[5:30] <sqrt[evil]> lol yes
[5:31] <mkopack> Bastards stole the wiring from all the lights in the local park, so what happens? My TAXES go up to pay to replace it??? THANKS! JERSK
[5:31] <piless> mkopack: people are stealing memorial statues for the scrap in my country
[5:31] <sqrt[evil]> personally i think the governance issues are more important than the technology ones
[5:32] <sqrt[evil]> mkopack: read an article in a local paper that the cost of copper theft in one of the suburbs here (pop ~400k) was 1.1 million last year
[5:32] <piofcube> There was a trend of that around here a little while ago but they were stealing fibre-optic by mistake... Just messed up the internet until word got round that they could sell it for scrap metal

[5:32] <mkopack> yeah??? and it's not just the cost of the copper but the manpower to reinstall it

[5:32] <sqrt[evil]> yeah, that'd be great from a 'keep the economy from tanking in 20 years' standpoint

[7:06] <Scott_S> I'm contemplating learning repackaging of TinyCore and turning it into a relatively cheap NAS Box...
[7:07] <Scott_S> .. Erm, forgot, TinyCore isn't ARM compatible.
[7:08] <sqrt[evil]> well you could go to the trouble, but it probably won't perform any better than a $30 router with usb and openwrt
[7:08] <sqrt[evil]> and will perform worse than a $50 nas box
[7:08] <sqrt[evil]> both of which come with cases and psus
[7:08] <Scott_S> True, but it would be the learning factor.
[7:08] <sqrt[evil]> try and port freenas :P
[7:08] <shirro> Wouldn't mind seeing the flip side if it is a production board to see how neat the resolder of the connector was.
[7:09] <sqrt[evil]> it actually might be easier...
[7:09] <sqrt[evil]> freebsd is quite source oriented
[7:09] <Scott_S> See, I wonder if they'll package a version with a more powerful processor and maybe 512MB of memory.
[7:09] <Scott_S> Increase the price to a $50 version or something, for more demanding things.

[7:13] <Syliss> i still want to get my wife a netbook

[7:13] <Scott_S> You know, I have to disagree. I love Apple's OS, but I dislike the lack of support for the applications I want to use.

[7:19] <Scott_S> Hey, I just want the certification.. As much as knowing your way around a computer is awesome, people don't care unless they see the paper.
[7:19] <sqrt[evil]> get a cert worth something at least

[7:21] <sqrt[evil]> ccies get paid.
[7:21] <sqrt[evil]> depends what you want to do. i'd say a+ isn't worth much, i would hope that most people hiring for that sort of job will consider it on par with 'i fart aroudn with computers in my spare time'
[7:22] <Scott_S> Hah, yeah. I definitely do know my way around troubleshooting windows and properly installing/maintaining a PC.

[7:23] <Ben64> mcse is too windowsy

[7:24] <Syliss> sqrt[evil]: where is here?
[7:24] <sqrt[evil]> vancouver
[7:24] <sqrt[evil]> lots of startups
[7:24] <Scott_S> Well yeah, if a company can save cash with not dishing out for Windows, they'll go Linux.
[7:24] <Ben64> linux is better too
[7:24] <Syliss> i want to move to washington so bad, seattle area
[7:24] <Scott_S> CentOS appears to be a main one though, although Fedora obviously has Enterprise versions (iirc, at least)
[7:24] <Ben64> a lot of stuff is moving towards ubuntu server
[7:24] <sqrt[evil]> centos is an open version of RHCE
[7:24] <sqrt[evil]> er RHEL
[7:25] <sqrt[evil]> debian >> * for servers imo
[7:25] <Ben64> i can't stand rpm/yum
[7:25] <Syliss> i haven't used red hat in years
[7:25] <sqrt[evil]> ^^
[7:25] <Scott_S> Yeah, I definitely have to agree, I much prefer aptitude to yum/rpm.
[7:25] <sqrt[evil]> since i started using debian i haven't looked back
[7:25] <Syliss> i don't mind rpm, but yeah
[7:25] <sqrt[evil]> i went redhat -> freebsd -> debian
[7:25] <Scott_S> .. Erm, deb, sorry. Aptitude just being the manager.
[7:25] <sqrt[evil]> around 2003 or so
[7:25] <sqrt[evil]> and haven't switched since
[7:26] <Syliss> I'm like debian, I'm not a fan of ubuntu
[7:26] <sqrt[evil]> don't see the point of ubuntu server, it's just a less stable debian
[7:26] <Scott_S> Haha, I only really got into it in 2010, so I don't know as much as I think I do.
[7:26] <Scott_S> All I know is that CentOS -> Performance, and Ubuntu -> User friendliness.
[7:26] <sqrt[evil]> i only do pretty small-time stuff, but i know my way around
[7:27] <Fragmint> anyone around here have experience with nexenta?
[7:27] <Syliss> i remember when ubuntu would ship cds from europe, was fun to get 10 cds randomly
[7:27] <sqrt[evil]> lol yeah, i have some of those laying around from like ubuntu 6 or something
[7:27] <Scott_S> I think that's why they don't do it anymore, Syliss. <_<
[7:27] <Syliss> Scott_S: its been more then 5 years
[7:27] <sqrt[evil]> Fragmint: is that the solaris-based storage thing?
[7:27] <Fragmint> si
[7:28] <sqrt[evil]> then no
[7:28] <Ben64> ubuntu has much more predictable releases than debian
[7:28] <Syliss> 7 years ago
[7:28] <Syliss> Ben64: because its every 6 months
[7:28] <Scott_S> Yeah, that's one thing nice about ubuntu. 10.04 -> 10.10, then 11.04 -> 11.10, etc.
[7:28] <Ben64> thats pretty much my point :D
[7:28] <sqrt[evil]> LTS every 12 months i guess?
[7:29] <Scott_S> Erm, they haven't had an LTS since 10.04.
[7:29] <sqrt[evil]> for a server though i think i prefer the debian model of 'well release it when its stable'
[7:29] <Ben64> 24 months for LTS
[7:29] <Scott_S> They've had... I think 3 revisions of 10.04 now?
[7:29] <Scott_S> I do like Ubuntu though, for desktops at least. Although I would LOVE if they gave you the decision between Unity and Gnome/LXDE by defaul.
[7:30] <sqrt[evil]> tbh the kernel devs and debian maintainers don't seem to like the canonical guys much and think they're a bit of a leech on the community
[7:30] <sqrt[evil]> that factors into a bit for me as well
[7:30] <Ben64> [citation needed]
[7:30] <Scott_S> Well, Canonical does seem to be going mainstream, so it's understandable. I mean, it's obvious they're going to charge something, sometime.
[7:30] <sqrt[evil]> just an impression i get, hang around the mailing lists or watch some of the google talks by kernel devs
[7:31] <sqrt[evil]> it's not the money, just that they like to take things off in their own direction and either don't make an effort to collaborate with upstream, or don't make any effort to send their work back upstream
[7:32] <Scott_S> Yeah, that would do it too.
[7:32] <Scott_S> Essentially, there's Linux, then there's Ubuntu at this point.
[7:32] <sqrt[evil]> one of the talks, the guy came up with a list of committers to the kernel, and only one of canonicals guys was in the top 200 or something like that, while redhat and novell made up like half of it
[7:33] <sqrt[evil]> numbers pulled out of my ass, but you get the idea
[7:33] <Scott_S> Well I think Ubuntu puts more work into the actual interfaces and such.
[7:33] <Scott_S> .. canonical, sorry.
[7:33] <sqrt[evil]> yah, not saying i have anything against them, i just kinda see what they're talkign about, they like to do their own thing
[7:33] <Ben64> well i heard from a guy that saw it scribbled on a wall in downtown brooklyn that linus loves ubuntu
[7:33] <Scott_S> Yeah. Well, maybe that'll change. Maybe.

[7:34] <sqrt[evil]> the beauty of free software is the fork
[7:34] <Syliss> they take gnome and run
[7:34] <sqrt[evil]> see XFree86, or more recently LibreOffice

[7:34] <Scott_S> Gotta love MySQL though, and Apache.
[7:35] <sqrt[evil]> as a properly educated computer scientist, i can't stand mysql
[7:35] <sqrt[evil]> postgres is much better
[7:35] <Scott_S> If it weren't for them, Linux wouldn't be as successful as it is. Or, not -as- successful at least.
[7:35] <Syliss> idk about that
[7:35] <sqrt[evil]> its' kind of interesting actually, the success of php and mysql is basically down to being in the right place at the right time
[7:35] <Syliss> php is starting to get phased out
[7:36] <Scott_S> Really? I actually haven't noticed that. ._.
[7:36] <sqrt[evil]> i wouldn't say that, but people are starting to take alternatives more seriously
[7:36] <Scott_S> ( Then again, I'm 18, I don't know shit about shit. )
[7:36] <Syliss> from what i hear, a lot of start-ups are bypassing it
[7:36] <sqrt[evil]> in the past few years
[7:36] <Fragmint> I'm angry noone uses delphi anymore
[7:36] <Scott_S> I'm interested to see what HTML5 brings in the future.

[7:37] <sqrt[evil]> it's not nearly the mess it used to be, but there are still much nicer things to use. hard to argue with the available talent and userbase on php though.
[7:37] <Syliss> html5 is what I need to learn while I'm broken
[7:38] <sqrt[evil]> there's not that much uncharted territory in html5 i don't think. some stuff that needs tighter standards. and 3d.
[7:38] <Scott_S> I need to get my butt in gear and get some certifications, lol. CCNA is top priority, will have to look into MCSE
[7:38] <sqrt[evil]> are you planning to go to college/uni/trade school?
[7:38] <sqrt[evil]> or you gonna try the cert route?
[7:39] <Scott_S> Going to go cert. route. I'm engaged to someone at this point (Just last month, actually) and we're planning on moving out in Octo.
[7:39] <sqrt[evil]> congrats
[7:39] <Scott_S> Haha, thanks. It was about time, 3 1/2 years together, didn't surprise either set of parents.
[7:39] <Syliss> wow, ur 18 and enggaged?
[7:40] <sqrt[evil]> the thing with certs is that some people (me) think they're meaningless, and others think they're essential and won't interview you without them
[7:40] <Scott_S> Yup. As much as some people think it's too early, it's hard to not get engaged to a childhood friend.
[7:40] <sqrt[evil]> ime the latter are usually large companies
[7:40] <Scott_S> See, I have the belief that certifications can get you far, Tech. Institutions just give you a good push with apprenticeships.
[7:41] <sqrt[evil]> yup, it's all about the experience at the end of the day
[7:41] <sqrt[evil]> but if you go for certs, i think most of your career will probably be working for '
[7:41] <sqrt[evil]> 'the man'
[7:41] <Scott_S> Meh, I don't really care who I work for, as long as I'm doing what I like to do.
[7:41] <Syliss> if i could get enough money i may go back to college
[7:41] <Scott_S> And considering the relatively high amount of experience I already have in technology, I don't think doing that would be very hard.
[7:42] <sqrt[evil]> then certs are probably the quick way to a decent job, if you can pull it off in the interview
[7:42] <sqrt[evil]> try and get some volunteer experience in the field, not sure how easy that is these days
[7:42] <Ben64> you could get a job at best buy : /
[7:43] <sqrt[evil]> best buy wouldn't hire because i told them i wouldn't rat out a coworker smoking pot after work
[7:43] <Scott_S> Well, there's always jobs available, it's a growing industry and workers are generally always required for that lol
[7:43] <sqrt[evil]> true story
[7:43] <Scott_S> .. Funny story here, Fianc? has a friend in the states, was turned away from Wal-Mart because he was "over-qualified"
[7:43] <sqrt[evil]> yeah, they don't want people that are giong to get disgruntled and quit in 2 weeks
[7:44] <Scott_S> Haha, yeah. The guy's a computer technician, has a few cert's, apparently not allowed to have them working there. xD

[7:45] <sqrt[evil]> it sucks.
[7:45] <Ben64> i was working at bestbuy when i was 18

[7:45] <Scott_S> Urgh, I couldn't do that.
[7:45] <Ben64> they wouldn't let me join the geek squad because i wasn't a good enough salesman
[7:45] <Ben64> doesn't that sound silly?
[7:45] <Scott_S> I'd rather go work at NCIX, at least I already know a good # of employees there.
[7:46] <sqrt[evil]> Ben64: lol.
[7:46] <Scott_S> .. Geek Squad. ;Shudder.
[7:46] <sqrt[evil]> i guess geek squad is all abuot upselling
[7:46] <Ben64> it really is
[7:46] <sqrt[evil]> Scott_S: they were hiring last time i was in...
[7:46] <Ben64> they used to pay ~$12-16/hr when i was working there, now i hear they pay around $9
[7:46] <Scott_S> I live in the Valley, I'm in a 4000 pop. town. <_<; I'd have to move out there to work there.
[7:47] <sqrt[evil]> yikes
[7:47] <sqrt[evil]> probably hard to find a tech job in such a place
[7:47] <sqrt[evil]> unless you want to be the town's fixit guy
[7:47] <Scott_S> Hence the requirement of moving to find the job. Then again, remote jobs are widely available, almost had a job at NuclearFallout a few months back.
[7:48] <Scott_S> ( Then again, being a busy as **** highschool student wasn't good on the resum?. )

[7:49] <sqrt[evil]> that said, being that fixit guy can be pretty lucrative if you can be arsed with the business side of things
[7:49] <sqrt[evil]> MBS: haha true
[7:49] <Ben64> i'm a fixit guy on the side
[7:49] <Ben64> have a "real" job too
[7:49] <MBS> i need to find a job, but thats a reason its hard for me
[7:49] <Syliss> i hate where i live, there are 30,000 pop but most jobs are either min wage or medical
[7:49] <Ben64> real job is mindlessly easy, pays as such
[7:50] <sqrt[evil]> Ben64: i'm basically a tech jack of all trades for small businesses, which means i take a lot of fixit jobs just to be nice to my clients.
[7:50] <Ben64> tech job pays $75/hr
[7:50] <Scott_S> Well, I do that already. Essentially have the word out in the town that if they have a comp. issue to give me a shout, pay $50 and I'll fix it for you.
[7:50] <MBS> dont want to do fast food, and would hate trying to always have to sell stuff to people, stupid stuff like warrenties and magazine subscriptions
[7:50] <Ben64> Scott_S: $50 flat rate? :|
[7:50] <Syliss> Ben64: my medical got denied cause i 'made too much'
[7:50] <sqrt[evil]> yeah don't work flat rate
[7:50] <Scott_S> No, that's just what they gave me lol.
[7:50] <MBS> and not even getting a commission, lol
[7:50] <Ben64> $75/hr
[7:50] <Ben64> you gotta get paid for real work
[7:50] <MBS> hoping i can get an IT internship or 2 before i graduate though
[7:51] <MBS> then move to seattle next summer
[7:51] <Scott_S> Nah, hard to charge that to people I actually know.
[7:51] <sqrt[evil]> MBS: you work at BB now?
[7:51] <MBS> no
[7:51] <MBS> saying i need a job though, lol
[7:51] <Ben64> bestbuy isn't a bad job for a short time
[7:51] <sqrt[evil]> Scott_S: charge $75/hr, give them a friend discount
[7:51] <Ben64> i have friend discounts, also hot chick discounts
[7:51] <Scott_S> sqrt[evil]: I could do that if business was more than a job/month.
[7:52] <MBS> if i can get an internship though that would be awesome
[7:52] <MBS> need stuff to pad my resume anyway, lol
[7:52] <sqrt[evil]> well that's what i mean, you cuold cultivate it, go to local businesses and stuff, but it's a pain in the ass
[7:52] <sqrt[evil]> which is why i work for another guy and get paid half as much as i could be
[7:52] <sqrt[evil]> but i don't have to deal with client BS
[7:52] <MBS> just hoping i can get a decent tech job in seattle, estimate will need a starting salary of at least like 45k for me to able to pay off student loans in like 3-5 years
[7:52] <Scott_S> Yeah. Well, I'm sure I'll figure something out. Anyways, I've gotta head outta here, stuff to do in the morning.
[7:53] <sqrt[evil]> cheers, good luck
[7:53] <Scott_S> sqrt[evil], thanks for the advice, hope to give ya' a shout some other time.

[7:53] <MBS> too bad at math for CS, lol
[7:53] <sqrt[evil]> lol
[7:53] <MBS> well actually as of friday im a management major, and will probably just have an MIS minor
[7:54] <MBS> cuz they are ending MIS, and making a new major in computer science department called informatics
[7:54] <sqrt[evil]> where are you living now that you won't get a job with those credentials?
[7:54] <MBS> meh not saying i cant get a job down here
[7:54] <MBS> just dont want to live in louisiana
[7:54] <sqrt[evil]> fair enough
[7:55] <MBS> they wanted to get rid of 2 majors that had their own departments to themselves, i guess

[7:56] <sqrt[evil]> s/he
[7:56] <MBS> literally, cooler
[7:56] <MBS> hate the heat and humidity
[7:56] <Ben64> where you wanting to go?
[7:57] <MBS> seattle
[7:57] <Syliss> me too
[7:57] <Ben64> so much seattle
[7:57] * rudebwoy (~rudebwoy@smtx.mooo.com) has joined #raspberrypi
[7:57] * PiBot sets mode +v rudebwoy
[7:57] <MBS> pretty much though, anyone who was above a sophmore when they announced they were ending major got screwed over, informatics seems like a nice major, but in my case, would have added probably at least 3 more semesters (im already taking 5 years, lol)
[7:57] <sqrt[evil]> kinda same thing happened to me, there was low enrollment in CS at the time
[7:58] <sqrt[evil]> so classes kept getting cancelled due to only like 5 students being that far in the program
[7:58] <sqrt[evil]> it was retarded
[7:58] <MBS> lol
[7:58] <Ben64> i took CCNA in high school, my class was the last they had
[7:58] <SoulShadow> we have super low enrollment in CS Right now
[7:58] <SoulShadow> it sucks
[7:58] <sqrt[evil]> and of course lots of the high level classes were only offered one semester a year...
[7:59] <MBS> i need to try and get some certifications this summer
[7:59] <MBS> not sure what i want to get though, lol
[7:59] <sqrt[evil]> basically me and a couple of the others got together with our friends that weren't that far in the program, and some of the profs, and we'd all enroll and those guys would get special exceptions. then drop the class.
[7:59] <Ben64> the only thing that sucks is that certifications are expensive
[8:00] <sqrt[evil]> the other thing about them is they really try hard to vendor-ify them
[8:00] <MBS> probably CCNA for sure, N+ and A+ would be nice i guess, but i know alot of people look down upon them, but that they might help for certain HR departments
[8:00] <sqrt[evil]> so you have to learn all the vendor-specific names for things
[8:00] <MBS> some security ones would be nice, but would have to learn it first, lol
[8:01] <sqrt[evil]> and then they'll throw in a bunch of weird ones that don't make a lot of sense and are basically marketing bizness
[8:01] <sqrt[evil]> at least for CCNA, and when i did it
[8:01] <Ben64> whats good is no more isdn on the ccna test
[8:01] <sqrt[evil]> i hope they got rid of the old serial stuff too
[8:02] <sqrt[evil]> and added ipv6 and ipsec?
[8:02] <Ben64> idk, i don't have access to the curriculum anymore :(
[8:02] <MBS> MSITP is too expensive for me right now, but might do a couple of the individual certs, red hat CSA would be nice, but would have to learn SELinux and active directory stuff more, alone with access control and encryption
[8:02] <sqrt[evil]> is CSA a new cert?
[8:03] <sqrt[evil]> i've only heard of RHCE
[8:03] <Ben64> theres all kinds of certs
[8:03] <Ben64> linux+
[8:03] <MBS> RHCE is above RHCSA
[8:03] <sqrt[evil]> ahh i see
[8:04] <sqrt[evil]> need debian certs :P
[8:04] <MBS> An RHCE? certification is earned by a Red Hat? Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) who has demonstrated the knowledge, skill, and ability required of a senior system administrator responsible for Red Hat Enterprise Linux? systems
[8:04] <sqrt[evil]> i actually interviewed at a place that used SLES
[8:04] <sqrt[evil]> er SLED
[8:04] <sqrt[evil]> i think
[8:04] <MBS> personally i dont care much about vender specific certs, but would be nice to have a linux one that isnt Linux+, lol
[8:04] <sqrt[evil]> yeah SLES
[8:04] <sqrt[evil]> was kinda surprised

[9:47] <IT_Sean> So... I call...

[9:47] <IT_Sean> "Thank you for calling United Airlines Reservations... Your esitmated wait time is... 3 hours"

[9:49] <IT_Sean> I knew it oculd do incoming
[9:49] <IT_Sean> But, i didn't know i could do outgoing calls as well

[11:22] * IT_Sean hummms
[11:23] <des2> The website is round in honor of PI day
[11:24] <IT_Sean> Pi day?
[11:24] <IT_Sean> Ooooh... 3/14
[11:24] <IT_Sean> I get it
[11:27] <IT_Sean> arsing hell! 200,000 registered interest entries, and growing at 10/minute! (I'm reading the latest blog post)
[11:28] <lennard> somehow I find the 10/minute hard to believe
[11:28] <RaTTuS> it's not pi day - 14/03 damn you dat format
[11:28] <RaTTuS> date*
[11:28] <IT_Sean> haha
[11:29] <RaTTuS> pi time will be in the afternboon though I suppose 3/14 15:92 <- umm
[11:29] <IT_Sean> It's 3.14 on my iPhone, and 14/3 on my Samsung. :/
[11:30] <Hourd> smallest unit first so 14,03,2012
[11:30] <Gadgetoid_mbp> What the hell are you all talking about? It's 1331720984
[11:31] <RaTTuS> http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17357374
[11:31] <Gadgetoid_mbp> No, wait, hold on, it's 1331721024
[11:31] <IT_Sean> Hourd: Just because that is how most of the world does it, does not make it inherently correct.
[11:32] <shirro> Surely pi day is 22nd of July
[11:32] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Most common language methods of telling the time are inherently incorrect in one way or another
[11:33] <Matt> morning
[11:33] <IT_Sean> Morning Matt
[11:33] <Dagger2> http://static.fjcdn.com/comments/Fair+_53609d85a28204b0a024dfb07401c65b.jpg
[11:33] <Gadgetoid_mbp> 14/3 is a fuzzy disaster open to more interpretation than the bible... and could easily lead one to believe that it's 4.666666
[11:33] <IT_Sean> O_O
[11:33] <drazyl> 20120314
[11:33] <Dagger2> it should be either little-endian or big-endian... not the mixed way that America uses
[11:34] <Matt> which is why as a date format, I prefer 2012-03-14
[11:34] <RaTTuS> ^ japenese way
[11:34] <Matt> plus that sorts properly
[11:34] <des2> Just use wtoad( )
[11:34] <IT_Sean> My iPhone (US) says "10:33 Wednesday, March 14" My Samsung (UK) says "Wed 14 Mar, AM, 10.33"
[11:35] <Matt> or 14-Mar-2012
[11:35] <IT_Sean> None of my phones actually tell me what year it is, unless i open the calendar app.
[11:35] <Matt> although I do tend to use dd/mm/yy in my own notes, being from the UK and all
[11:35] <Hourd> IT_Sean: makes sense tis all =] wrt date format
[11:35] <Gadgetoid_mbp> You'll all be sorry when we hit the year 10000! Mark my words!
[11:36] <drazyl> ill be dead
[11:36] <Matt> 2038 is probably more pressing
[11:36] <IT_Sean> When i write it out, i usually write it as: 14 Mar 2012. If i shorten it, it would be 3/14/12. Which could be confusing if i do that on the same document. :p
[11:36] <shirro> 22/7 is good enough (to 2 decimals) for a national celebration and doesn't have a stupid US date format that nobody else understands
[11:37] <des2> It's important to show the year, especially when showing RPi projected delivery dates
[11:37] <IT_Sean> Heh.
[11:37] <IT_Sean> Current projected date is April 17th.
[11:38] <IT_Sean> ... 2307

[11:39] <des2> "I think we'd like to keep doing Raspberry Pis. I think we are good at them. The current device is very strong at some things, it is strong in graphics, it is strong in video. It is not an especially powerful processor. It is enough but not too much. If we could, we'd love to figure out a way to build a version that has the same amount of graphics but has more general purpose computing heft."

[11:47] <shirro> Don't suppose anyone has seen how neat the replacement is on the ethernet socket?
[11:47] <shirro> Look atthat picture and tell me it isn't a beta
[11:47] <shirro> If it isn't a beta then they have a GPIO hader
[11:48] <des2> The Audio jack color is yellow not blue
[11:48] <des2> That's not one of the Betas then, right ?
[11:48] <des2> oops wrong jack.

[11:51] <shirro> What is P2 - the camera connector? That has a header as well
[11:51] <des2> But remember after the Beta boards and before the 10,000 there was a small batch run off first for testing.
[11:52] <des2> That's the one that had the correct Ethernet jack.
[11:52] <Henchman21> p2 is jtag fd1 is camera
[11:53] <shirro> Ofcourse they could have soldered them in themselves for testing, and that might not be a production board

[12:39] <drazyl> yes?
[12:39] <Davespice> I need to test if the config.txt file will still work if there are ini file style group names in it [Overclocking] for example
[12:39] <Davespice> or if this breaks anything...
[12:39] <drazyl> think that needs testing with hardware not qemu
[12:40] <Davespice> right
[12:40] <drazyl> have you asked on the forums?
[12:40] <Davespice> okay so that file doesn't get read when you're emulating in qemu?
[12:40] <Davespice> not yet no, I will do in due course
[12:40] <drazyl> no, because emulation is of the arm side not the gpu
[12:40] <Davespice> I might speak directly to Dom about it actually

[13:24] <ShiftPlusOne> wouldn't you need to take the network into account as well? If you're using the ethernet, it's likely thatthe other devices will be significantly slower, right?
[13:24] <mjr> 'course, there is the question of how much USB throughput can the Pi handle anywway
[13:25] <mjr> ShiftPlusOne, it would slow down any other usb traffic (above a certain threshold), yes
[13:26] <ShiftPlusOne> Is that likely to be significant in practice if your rootfs is on a usb drive?

[13:27] <drazyl> if you have a fs on USB-SATA or something and are trying to stream traffic @ 100Mb on the ethernet, assuming you don't max out the CPU then yes your fs performance will degrade

[14:56] <OneFix_Work> des2: I think they took a beating on the unpreparedness of Farnell and RS, and now with the Ethernet screw-up (which I don't think is really their fault), I think they are choosing to remain silent until working units actually start arriving at people's doorsteps

[14:59] <OneFix_Work> des2: Well, unless they hit another snag or people are getting them and simply not saying anything
[14:59] <des2> I think they should be just telling people where they are, instead of continually speculating on the future.

[15:01] <OneFix_Work> des2: Agreed. They also had everyone sign up for the mailing list and told us that they would let us know before they went on sale...that didn't happen either, did it.

[15:03] <des2> Let's just get through the first batch first ;-)
[15:05] <OneFix_Work> des2: The rPi foundation or the distributors will simply pull random samples of boards to confirm the quality control in China is working...I actually assumed that they were doing some kind of random test in China, but I guess that wasn't happening
[15:06] <des2> Seems they were only doing basic electrical testing in China not functional testing.
[15:06] <des2> In UK they seem to be doing full testing and Xraying.
[15:07] <OneFix_Work> des2: I can understand that, though. But the full testing can still be done at random intervals. The x-ray thing wasn't really necessary, since I think they found out the problem with the ethernet ports pretty quickly on receiving them.
[15:08] <OneFix_Work> des2: Understand that some of this is just normal problems that any other new company / product experiences
[15:10] <des2> Once they are past the 10,000 I can see them only testing random statistical samples fully.

[15:23] <mkopack> Yeah, I just question whether this issue caused the assembly line to be halted while they fix it. If so, I think anybody not in this first batch is going to be delayed.
[15:24] <mkopack> On the other hand if they were able to continue production with the proper part while also fixing the first 10,000, then we should be in good shape for getting the post 10,000 initial boards
[15:25] <drazyl> guess that depends on the availability of the broadcom parts
[15:26] <OneFix_Work> mkopack: Actually, from what it sounds like, they had been producing boards with the bad part for a while and they had to go back and "fix" all of the boards that they produced earlier. The other problem is getting hold of the right part...they might still have problems getting the magnetic ethernet ports
[15:26] <mkopack> Right..
[15:27] <mkopack> So there was probably the first 10,000, plus some number of additional boards with the bad part (maybe say another 10,000?) that have to be fixed.

[15:32] <mkopack> basically - Debian is the most stable and seems to be the 2nd fastest. Arch is fastest, but has some small issues. Fedora is the slowest and still needs the most work.
[15:33] <des2> Archlinux
[15:33] <des2> This is by far the fastest of the 3 Distros and would be my choice if the image viewer was working. Boot speed is about 10 secs to the login screen, amazing.
[15:33] <jojo> according to one guy who obviously spent 15 minutes on it
[15:33] <mkopack> OneFix: I don't believe that's correct. They said they knew about the problem for 4 days and had shipped them back. I didn't think the first 10,000 had been fixed yet though???. But I could be wrong.

[15:40] <des2> Interesting that while being the 'official' distribution Fedora is still the least finished.
[15:41] <mkopack> Mazon: Maybe, but many of us have been waiting anxiously since last summer!
[15:41] <mkopack> Not like the 2 weeks before Xmas
[15:41] <Mazon> then wait a week or two more!

[15:42] <mkopack> des: Yeah??? I still question that. Especially when Dom said that the official Broadcom distro is Debian
[15:42] <OneFix_Work> What's interesting is the magnetic jacks have as much to do with regulations. The reason is that the magnetic jacks also give you high voltage isolation...meaning if you apply power to these, then "poof"...not so with the right jacks.
[15:42] <mkopack> Mazon: and the fact that we originally thought Christmas was going to be around the time of Christmas, then January, then Feb...

[15:44] <mkopack> des: I think a lot of the whole "Fedora will be the official distro" has to do with Chris Taylor and the university of Seneca being involved, figuring it's a good tie-in to a school, which helps with the education side of things.
[15:44] <mkopack> But I'm betting all of the distros will improve quickly once boards get into people's hands
[15:44] <OneFix_Work> Which is also how you can tell the magnetic/non-magnetic jacks without an x-ray...magnetic jacks should have high resistance between pins...non-magnetic jacks will not
[15:45] <des2> If it ends up with the first bunch of people using a distro other than Fedora it's gonna put Fedora at a big disadvantage.
[15:45] <OneFix_Work> Because, actually in the non-magnetic version, the pins are directly connected
[15:46] <drazyl> des2 that depends on what is rolled out for the edu market tho - if someone produces a packaged environment (think Borland) for schools, it won't matter what distro is in use if it runs on any of them

[15:59] <RITRedbeard> Alright, alright.
[15:59] <jojo> so why all the fedora hate anyway ?
[15:59] <mkopack> jojo: Oh, no hate (at least on my part)...
[15:59] <RITRedbeard> Let's stop the bitching before it begins... not another one of these conversations again.
[15:59] <OneFix_Work> jojo: Because Fedora = RedHat = Corporate = Bad
[16:00] <mkopack> I think we're just questioning why the decision to make Fedora the "preferred" OS over Debian, when Debian seems to be better supporting the RPi (currently)
[16:01] <des2> No hate just notice that Fedora has a lot of work to do still.
[16:01] <mkopack> Personally, I'm going to be leaning towards whichever distro gets hardware FP support working best.
[16:01] <OneFix_Work> mkopack: Probably has to do with the support of the proprietary components for the SOC
[16:01] <mkopack> And that probably means most likely Gentoo
[16:01] <jojo> the pi-specific stuff seems to be the same between the two
[16:02] * Larry (~meandmyip@175.156.144.167) has joined #raspberrypi
[16:02] * PiBot sets mode +v Larry
[16:02] <RITRedbeard> Android should be the default OS! *rolls eyes*
[16:02] <OneFix_Work> mkopack: It could be because Fedora has been slightly more popular in the educational space
[16:02] <jojo> and all the work that fedora needs, debian would also need
[16:03] <GabrialDestruir> Apparently someone in Sweden named their child Google .-.
[16:03] <OneFix_Work> jojo: It could also be that Red Hat / Fedora was willing to put a couple of developers on the rPi project and Debian / Ubuntu wasn't
[16:03] <mkopack> jojo: Yes and no??? The issue with the Fedora one is that they're making it specific to the Rpi, where as the debian is running Armv5 code.
[16:03] <RITRedbeard> Am I the only one here who wants to disassociate himself from Google altogether here?
[16:03] <RITRedbeard> Have you seen the third-party data mining sites?
[16:03] <Da|Mummy> good luck
[16:04] <mkopack> SO, yes, if we wanted Debian running on v6 code with the hardware FP support and such, we'd have to do a LOT of work (the same stuff they're doing for Fedora)
[16:04] <RITRedbeard> You could have a goto or precis on anyone for like $30... $50
[16:04] <GabrialDestruir> Eh, I figure Google will get my information one way or another....
[16:05] <jojo> according to seneca wiki, fedora remix has no plans to move beyond armv5tel
[16:05] <GabrialDestruir> Better I give it to them now, and embrace our future overlords, than become apart of the rebellion >.>
[16:06] <RITRedbeard> You are a member of the rebel alliance and a tratior!
[16:06] <Da|Mummy> RITRedbeard uses askjeeves
[16:06] <RITRedbeard> I think searching could be done better than what Google currently offers. Much time is spent sorting through data that is redundant or not relevant to a query.
[16:07] <RITRedbeard> I think there are several strategies to faciliate better searching.
[16:07] <GabrialDestruir> Bah, too much effort to rebel against a company that even if you don't use any of their stuff, chances are knows 90% of what you're doing.
[16:07] <OneFix_Work> Da|Mummy: Or DuckDuckGo, which is really just a frontend for Bing
[16:08] <GabrialDestruir> anyways bbl
[16:08] <Da|Mummy> only reason to even know of duckduckgo is if youre using midori
[16:08] <OneFix_Work> GabrialDestruir: I'm not so concerned about what Google knows I'm doing, but more about a 3rd party using that data
[16:08] <RITRedbeard> I might try Midori. Is it any good?
[16:09] <Da|Mummy> RITRedbeard, ive only used it on arm devices, works quite well
[16:09] <RITRedbeard> Hmm, GTK+
[16:10] <RITRedbeard> Does it have customizable themes and such? The only reason I use Chrome on laptop is to conserve every bit of 1440x900
[16:10] <Da|Mummy> i use midori on a 800x480 lcd....not sure

[16:18] <traeak> air holes
[16:19] <traeak> midori as in the browser or ?
[16:19] <mkopack> Nah, there's the big vent slots on the bottom, and holes in the top in the raspberry logo
[16:19] <Da|Mummy> i dunno about that 40 euro pricetag
[16:19] <traeak> no need to ventilate the rpi though

[16:25] <SpeedEvil> Or even simply slump in some cases.

[17:41] <hotwings> i see the twitter button on that one but not google so maybe its a different model
[17:41] <Gadgetoid_mbp> mkopack: that usually includes other vegetables and possibly fish being steamed at the same time, though... so the wait isn't as bad
[17:41] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Steamer is great for a fire-and-forget meal

[17:42] <Gadgetoid_mbp> $3,699? Wow... I think I'll buy up fridges and glue a shitty $99 tablet computer to them before reselling at three times the price
[17:42] <drazyl> it has apps!
[17:42] <drazyl> who doesn't *need* a fridge you can play angry birds on?
[17:42] <mkopack> If I didn't already have an iPad and iPhone that can do the same things
[17:42] <mkopack> Especially for $3699.
[17:42] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Yeah, specially useful when waiting for the bus... a readily available source of food and entertainment
[17:42] <mkopack> I could buy 2 fridges PLUS a top end iPad for that
[17:42] <drazyl> apparently it can run dinner parties for you
[17:43] <RaTTuS|BIG> friends the freezer
[17:43] <drazyl> "hello, my name is dave, I'll be your fridge tonight"
[17:43] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I don't think we have dinner parties in the UK...
[17:43] <hotwings> apparently they make an over than can download recipes from the internets
[17:43] <hotwings> lol

[17:44] <hotwings> apparently they make an oven than can download recipes from the internets
[17:44] <mkopack> now if It had RFID tech in it, so it could tell what you put in and took out and measured how much was left, and the milk was about to expire and such, it would be awesome
[17:44] <SpeedEvil> hotwings: Consider that if you like chinese food - a small robot, run by a person in china is probably not utterly prohibitive.
[17:44] <hotwings> mkopack - you could always just smell the milk
[17:44] <mkopack> I swear, I throw out more food than I eat out of my fridge
[17:45] <mkopack> stuff always goes bad before I can get around to using it
[17:45] <SpeedEvil> I've gotten quite good.
[17:45] <hotwings> happens to me too mkopack
[17:45] <Gadgetoid_mbp> mkopack: A pain that I, too, share...
[17:45] <SpeedEvil> I think pretty much the only thing I threw out that was bad last month was a pack of tomatos that went mouldy.
[17:45] <Gadgetoid_mbp> I try eating expired shit out of the fridge to make myself feel less of an evil spoiled western villain
[17:45] <mkopack> Being single means I HATE cooking for 1, so I often make large portions and then end up having most of it spoil before I can eat it all
[17:45] <SpeedEvil> I've got this months shopping delivered today, and just had a balanced meal.
[17:45] <drazyl> mkopack you need a special device called a "freezer" :)
[17:45] <SpeedEvil> A pork pie, a cadburies cream egg, and a bag of crisps.
[17:46] <Gadgetoid_mbp> mkopack: That's what they invented tupperware and freezers for
[17:46] <hotwings> now a cool device would be one which can reverse engineer a recipe. first thing i would put in there would be panda express orange chicken :)
[17:46] <SpeedEvil> mkopack: Indeed. I'm in the same position. I got a pile of 250 650ml containers off ebay.
[17:46] <mkopack> I have stuff in my freeze that is REALLY old
[17:46] <SpeedEvil> mkopack: and a _huge_ chest freezer.
[17:46] <drazyl> I can probably sell you one for $3699, maybe even withg a display
[17:46] <mkopack> I seriously need to do a clean out of the fridge and freezer
[17:46] * datagutt|afk is now known as datagutt
[17:46] <SpeedEvil> mkopack: this means that I can cook a huge pan of 15l of lamb broth, and freeze it into 30 portions.
[17:46] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Just leave it on the street and buy a new one... it'll probably grow legs and walk away
[17:47] <piofcube> Yeah, when the lettuce leaves stick to the cooling element at the back of the fridge it can get horrid LOL
[17:47] <hotwings> if you have items in your freezer, and dont know what they are cuz theyre completely engulfed in frost.. theyre old

[17:50] <piofcube> What would be good is an app that you could scan the barcode of any food product and it would retrieve the recipe for it from places like food.com
[17:50] <des2> There are like 20 different versions including youtube videos
[17:50] <mkopack> The Beijing Beef is really good too, but OMG don't look at the nutrition information on that! like 1 serving is 1000+ calories

[17:52] <Gadgetoid_mbp> Nice protip, piofcube!

[18:41] <traeak> that gets old too
[18:41] <Fragmint> you lie
[18:41] <traeak> the bad thing is that both of these countries you can't drink the water or eat fresh vegetables without getting something bad

[18:44] <des2> That's why I fry my water.
[18:44] <haltdef> mmm deep fried water
[18:45] <traeak> cook everything to death

[18:46] <mchou> nope
[18:46] <traeak> gas?
[18:46] <traeak> hehe
[18:46] <mchou> the real reason is to minimise the use of oil
[18:46] <mchou> back in the day oil was a rare commodity
[18:46] <traeak> ahh practical resource usage
[18:47] <mchou> the only reason yo'd have oily chinese food is you're eating too much from crappy take-out joints
[18:48] <mchou> real chinese carefully minimize their oil usage...might even go so far as to say stingy
[18:49] <mkopack> use the natural fats in the meats
[18:49] <steve_rox> or set fire to it for some fuel
[18:52] <traeak> they do? hehe
[18:52] <traeak> probably also depends somewhat on region as well
[18:53] <ddss|mips> 13:39 <+des2> That's why I fry my water.

[19:31] <mkopack> now, for specific use cases, MAYBE - (like an ARM compile farm for things that you don't want to cross-compile for)
[19:31] <mchou> mkopack: kernel: [ 7625.175313] cannot submit datapipe for urb 0, error -28: not enough bandwidth
[19:32] <des2> Moar bandwidth!
[19:32] <mkopack> mchou: looks fun??? not
[19:33] <mkopack> OR, if you could get the GPU to do some GPGPU stuff, then again, MAYBE, although I think you'd find that a modern decent gfx card can do a lot more
[19:33] <des2> I don't think it will make a good bitcoin factory

[19:35] <mkopack> I just think a lot of these people are going to be pretty disappointed when they see what sort of ACTUAL CPU performance they're going to get
[19:35] <Hexxeh> Anyone's Pi shipped yet?
[19:35] <mkopack> Nope

[19:36] <mkopack> I was hoping we'd get a "RPi's are shipping today on Pi day" announcement, but no such luck so far.
[19:36] <linagee> they should ship them out of the country with ZERO tax
[19:36] <linagee> its an unfinished kit

[19:37] <linagee> mkopack: and if they really wanted to do that, sell it with the LAN plug unsoldered.
[19:37] <mkopack> just because there isn't a plastic box around the outside doesn't mean it's unfinished. You don't have to assemble it, solder it or anything like that.
[19:37] <mkopack> just plug it in and run
[19:37] <mkopack> hence FINISHED
[19:38] <linagee> mkopack: there are actually laws that allow you to ship out of countries without tax requirements
[19:38] <linagee> was just looking this up yesterday
[19:38] <mchou> linagee: which country are you in?
[19:38] <linagee> mkopack: any geek should be able to put on a LAN connector

[19:39] <mkopack> lin: What's the issue??? You're only paying for the local state sales tax??? geesh
[19:39] <mchou> linagee: there are difinitely tariff rules. what have you found?
[19:39] <mkopack> You'd have to pay that regardless
[19:39] <linagee> mkopack: only if it was being sold from inside the US
[19:39] <mkopack> And you'd pay that whether it was "finished" or not
[19:40] <mkopack> Lin: You don't seem to get the point of SALES TAX. You buy something, you pay tax on the transaction

[19:41] <mchou> indeed
[19:41] <mchou> I don't understand the issue
[19:42] <mkopack> If Newark has any sort of business presence in my state (GA) then I'm required to pay GA sales tax in the transaction
[19:42] <mchou> mkopack: what's linagee's beef in a nutshell?
[19:42] <mchou> mkopack: he's complaining about having to pay sales tax?
[19:42] <mkopack> Technically, even if they DON'T have a business presence, *I* am still responsible for paying the sales tax, it's just not on Newark to collect it??? I'm *supposed* to keep track of it and pay it when I pay my income taxes every year

[19:50] <linagee> mkopack: are you hauling like 12 people around inside during every car trip?
[19:50] <hotwings> btw, as far as online purchases and tax.. youre required to pay tax on any purchase you make, online included. online retailers can optionally charge the tax or leave it up to you to file it yourself. i found out the law is in the process of being changed so that all online purchases will be required to charge your local sales tax in all cases
[19:50] <mkopack> Most in it's class get < 20

[19:53] <mkopack> At LEASt in NY when you get your tag you have to get it safety inspected first??? Here, all they care about is the emissions (smog)??? half the cars have damn lights that don't work, bumpers falling off, broken windows, thats' ok, just so long as it doesn't polute
[19:54] <linagee> mkopack: we have a safety and emissions inspection here also
[19:54] <linagee> mkopack: with capped rates on what they can charge

[20:10] <linagee> mchou: or wait, disregard that
[20:10] <mchou> linagee: has nothing to do with driver

[20:10] <philh> why would you want x on a sheevaplug?
[20:11] <mkopack> philh: that's what I'm saying - the Sheevaplug doesn't have a display interface, so if you're wanting to run a desktop the Rpi is better

[20:14] <piless> I would so get a sheevaplug right now if it was more like ??40
[20:14] <des2> Yeah I couldn't resist the pogoplug at $20.
[20:14] <mchou> piless: there's no need to get sheevaplug. pogoplug for $25 in US, available now
[20:14] <des2> (+ $2 tax)

[20:15] <philh> what kind of disk interface does the pogo have?
[20:16] <mchou> rm: don't expect it to be stable
[20:16] <linagee> RPi perfect use: continously stream one youtube channel. (or group of channels or a feed) put it on any TV playing MSM news. :)

[20:19] <traeak> i got the pogoplug to act as a hot plug hub for devices...so as not to destabilize our real machines

[20:19] <philh> why would you want to use flash on something with so little power?
[20:19] <traeak> heh
[20:20] <mkopack> Adobe has dropped support for flash on ARM???
[20:20] <traeak> misuse of one of those

[20:20] <mkopack> Flash is going downhill
[20:20] <linagee> philh: I suppose you could stream it using the RPi as a diskless workstation. but I think that would suck even more. (latency/bandwidth)
[20:20] <mkopack> (thank GOD)
[20:20] <piless2> they should open source it
[20:20] <des2> http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/youtube-without-flash
[20:20] <linagee> I think only apple users think flash is going downhill. everyone else is using it just fine.
[20:21] <philh> linagee, what about youtube's html5 service?
[20:21] <linagee> philh: I guess you could use that
[20:21] <philh> or even just a flashless youtube client
[20:21] <des2> Adobe basically announced flash was done
[20:21] <linagee> I didn't mean to give implementation details. just a high level "this would be cool" :)
[20:21] <des2> With their announcement that mobile flash development was over
[20:21] <_av500_> piless2: flash is impossible to open source
[20:21] <_av500_> the code has more ifdefs than lines of c code
[20:22] <OneFix_Work> des2: No, the SD card you use is bootstrapped and contains the "brains" of the unit

[20:25] <_av500_> to boot
[20:25] <OneFix_Work> mkopack: Adobe has dropped development of Flash...they are pretty much going ahead with HTML5

[20:25] <mkopack> Now we just need to get all the sites USING that damn abortion of a technology to give it up and move to MODERN solutions
[20:26] <des2> We're talking about Adobe flash.
[20:26] <mchou> too many stupid web devs tied to flash for that to happen
[20:26] <mkopack> all because they didn't want to learn how to REALLY program
[20:26] <OneFix_Work> des2: Oh, you can always use gnash
[20:27] <philh> stupid web devs are nowhere near as fond of flash as they once were
[20:27] <mchou> yeah, but you can't cure stupid
[20:27] <philh> i guess we can thank the idevices for that, to some extent
[20:27] <OneFix_Work> des2: But since even Adobe seems to be giving up on Flash, I would bet that project is going to die on the vine.
[20:28] <philh> but if flash starts targeting html5 that wont be a problem, the devs will upgrade
[20:28] <OneFix_Work> philh: Yea, but the "streaming" format for iOS is even more stupid than Flash

[20:28] <philh> as in i've no idea what you're talking about, just to be clear
[20:29] <mkopack> What? streaming H.264 video vs a stupid flash plugin player?
[20:29] <mkopack> I'll take the H.264 ANY day
[20:29] <OneFix_Work> philh: It's called "segmented video" and it breaks the video up into short 2 or 3 second videos that are downloaded and then played in succession.
[20:29] <des2> At least the RPi has a H.264 codec
[20:29] <philh> what has that got to do with flash?
[20:29] <philh> is that youtube's workaround for the lack of flash on the idevices or something?
[20:29] <OneFix_Work> philh: Because the primary use for Flash has been streaming video.

[22:46] <mkopack> Eh, I'm all for knowing how to use VI / EMACS, but for any sort of largish project, with multiple files and such, I really prefer using an IDE??? I just can be WAY more productive
[22:46] <traeak> i disagree :-p
[22:47] <traeak> we have 600k lines of code (sloccount) and we use vim internally for everything
[22:47] <mkopack> I can go back to Vi if I need to, but I don't like being in there when the code starts getting crazy and I need to start looking at lots of stuff.
[22:47] <traeak> don't code so it goes crazy, make it modular
[22:48] <traeak> :-p
[22:48] <mkopack> the beauty of a good IDE s that you can stay within the single environment and do evyerthing - code, document, version control, debug, profile, and test run without having to switch from one too to the other
[22:48] <des2> Advantages of an IDE: 1 - can easily pull up man page for function arguments. 2 - can go right to your compile errors in the code.
[22:48] <mkopack> des: exactly??? evyerthing works together
[22:48] <traeak> so you never rip through yoru source code with shell scripts, etc to do refactoring ?
[22:49] <mkopack> traeak: why would I need a shell script to refactor my code when I just click a button on the IDE to do it for me?
[22:49] <mkopack> No shell script needed
[22:49] <huene> some IDEs support refactoring
[22:49] <huene> eclipse for example
[22:49] <des2> 1 - ^Z 'man function', 2 - make less errors.
[22:49] <mkopack> It goes and finds every dependency, and warns be before I allow it to make the change, and it'll change it everywhere

[22:57] <mkopack> It's not a matter of one tool making you a better developer vs another??? It's a matter of some people feel they can be more efficient with some tools vs others
[22:57] <mkopack> I feel I can produce a lot more code, in a shorter time, with better results when I use something like Netbeans, than I can doing it all from the command line...
[23:00] <traeak> a lot of it depends on workflow, etc
[23:00] <mkopack> Yeah true
[23:00] <traeak> to some degree using a possibly more limited tool forces better clarity, etc
[23:00] <mkopack> sure...
[23:01] <mkopack> I'm all for teaching kids on the more command line tools, at least initially??? Makes them understand more about what's going on, and THEN introducing them to the IDE afterwards

[23:18] <shirro> I am guessing the boards would be back in the uk by now. I wonder if they are going to ship portions around the world for a simultaneous release?

[23:20] <SpeedEvil> I have stolen them, and built a shed out of them.

[23:28] <traeak> shirro: more power to broadcom if they want to try to lock students into developing for their products
[23:28] <traeak> heeh
[23:28] <shirro> Got an email from an aus electronics place. Has 30 beaglebones in stock. Hmmm, $119 each. Ship immediately. Hmmm.
[23:29] <traeak> no vid, what you want with them?
[23:29] <shirro> No, I want an mx53 qsb for compiling packages for RPi. Beaglebone is overpriced toy.
[23:30] <SpeedEvil> How much is mx52?
[23:30] <SpeedEvil> 3

[23:31] * SpeedEvil quite wants a beaglebone.
[23:31] <shirro> Freescale say $150 direct on their site. Not sure how much from a distributor.

[23:33] <shirro> 1Ghz processor, 1G ram and sata interface would make a nice arm build machine. Once RPi ship more than hot air I can't see much of a future for those Beagles.

[23:37] <shirro> Simon-: some things you can. It depends on the build process. Some configure scripts will detect architecture.
[23:38] <shirro> Simon-: AFAIK all the ARM builds for every distro are done on ARM for this reason.
