07:11:53 PMGadgetWisdomGuru My new microphone arrived today. Will have to test it later.
07:12:06 PMblakkheim eric is a good co-host, i hope he stays around
07:12:10 PMnewzgerl GWG what kind
07:12:16 PMchrisreich this is maddening - I have the pop-up player but in all black. No 'play' button or anything else.
07:12:25 PMmmdmurphy My wife says that all the time - invalid arguement
07:12:33 PMnewzgerl chrisreich, ;(
07:12:50 PMmmdmurphy chrisreich - which link you using?
07:12:58 PMevermind which exact dependency errors do you get?
07:13:09 PMmmdmurphy I couldn't get it on, switched to
07:13:20 PMevermind if its an older scanner, might work out of the box, depending on the kernel version
07:13:30 PMblakkheim the one is working well for me
07:13:38 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Newsgerl, inexpensive(because I'm cheap) studio condenser. My dynamic microphone wasn't working the way I wanted it to.
07:13:43 PMchrisreich the url at the top of the pop-up player reads ""
07:13:45 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Ironically went to a more sensitive microphone
07:14:42 PMnewzgerl GWG = got an awesome headset w/mic at a closeout store soooo cheap
07:14:54 PMmmdmurphy chrisreich, try
07:15:11 PM_Jot_ chrisreich, that goes to, but try the direct link, see if you can reach justin at all, if you can, it is probably a flash issue
07:15:14 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Newsgerl, I have a little mini-studio now, because I'm doing a podcast.
07:15:23 PMWreken Robbie----- what does your shirt Say???
07:15:31 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Cheap is relative. A microphone could run $300+. I paid <$100 USD
07:16:06 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Newsgerl, I have a co-host and everything.
07:16:27 PMmmdmurphy GadgetWisdomGuru - link and name of podcast?
07:16:27 PMnewzgerl GWG - $16 ha ha can't use it on radio. Skype has a wireless headset for around $69 promising chrystal clear communications
07:16:45 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Mmdmurphy, Android Buffet
07:16:45 PMnewzgerl Wreken, yah, I wanted to know too
07:16:49 PMmmdmurphy newzgerl - can I use it with my wife?
07:16:58 PMCurbuntu ROBBIE: That will take you to the avasys link with the .rpm.
07:17:02 PMnewzgerl mmdmurphy - be worth a try :)
07:17:26 PMWreken I think it might be appropriate at this point in the show for Robbie to Ready his shirt!
07:17:39 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Newzgerl, I have a mixer, microphones, computers...and lots of shiny buttons and dials.
07:17:44 PMnewzgerl Wreken, ya I think you're right.
07:17:46 PMCurbuntu Yes.
07:18:36 PMCurbuntu Quality is excellent.
07:18:54 PMCurbuntu Replacement isn't a possibility at this time.
07:19:12 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Curbuntu, is there a Freecycle or such in your neighborhood?
07:19:17 PMAshley___ Hey all
07:19:28 PMajamison5579 I had a nice HP scanner once cost me 250 USD and my stupid Sister-in-law stole it
07:19:55 PMkyoshininja ajamison5579: ouch, I feel your pain.
07:19:57 PMGoodGuy I got a Canon scanner for $3 at a garage sale a couple years ago
07:20:03 PMnewzgerl @Robbie lol
07:20:10 PMajamison5579 yeah
07:20:12 PMWreken too funny
07:20:33 PM{BBI}Nexus{BBI} @ajamison: and you did nothing to stop her :D
07:20:33 PMWreken awkward moment there for a bit
07:20:34 PMCurbuntu Yes, I could check FreeCycle. It just seems a shame to give up a great scanner because of lack of drivers.
07:20:36 PMnewzgerl @Robbie, John just got a new Toshiba laptop (in your news).
07:20:41 PMGoodGuy The seller said she couldnt get XP drivers at the time, so bought a newer model... I found them quickly
07:20:42 PMajamison5579 newzgerl use RobbieF to make him away not @Robbie
07:20:58 PMnewzgerl ajamison thx
07:21:00 PMajamison5579 BBI i found out after the fact she denys it of course
07:21:02 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Curbuntu, that is what happened with my Canon LIDE80
07:21:15 PM{BBI}Nexus{BBI} *Sisters*... lol
07:21:21 PMWreken hi
07:21:28 PMnewzgerl RobbieF John just got a new Toshiba laptop
07:21:30 PMGatorman I like Eric. Robbie, don't run him off.
07:21:36 PM_Jot_ good job Christy :)
07:21:48 PMnewzgerl <bows to Jot>
07:21:53 PMAshley___ robbie can i ask you a quetion ?
07:21:55 PMEricKidd thanks, Gatorman!
07:22:00 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Gatorman, he didn't run off the other co-hosts. They moved on to bigger and better things
07:22:11 PMGadgetWisdomGuru We can only hope that Eric has nothing to take him away.
07:22:33 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Hopefully he has a fulfilling day job and no social obligations on Tuesdays...ever
07:22:33 PMGatorman That's the company line.
07:22:36 PMGoodGuy I don't know Ashley, can you? :-) My mom used to say that
07:22:47 PMnewzgerl EricKidd you'll be doing A-Channel news soon
07:23:03 PMchrisreich I still have no success getting the show. I think it's a flash issue as I changed some of my flash settings last week. This is the only problem since changing them.
07:23:18 PMGadgetWisdomGuru What is his day job, I suppose we should ask?
07:23:42 PMmmdmurphy it sort of makes up for using a cheap camera, too
07:23:43 PMnewzgerl The Spirit Catcher is evil
07:23:58 PMAshley___ good timing ;)
07:23:58 PMnewzgerl The knives keep falling near people
07:24:07 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I need to crowdsource this.
07:24:08 PM_Jot_ that spiritcatcher stole my dreams! now I don have any since it catches them all the time
07:24:17 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Fish or meat for dinner?
07:24:18 PMnewzgerl chrisreich, that's too bad
07:24:23 PMGregInTexas bummer
07:24:26 PMGatorman The Seminoles call it a Dream Catcher.
07:24:34 PMmmdmurphy fish isn't meat????
07:24:35 PMajamison5579 newzgerl would you be Christy as in the long lost co-host
07:24:53 PMnewzgerl ajamison5579 guilty
07:24:55 PMAshley___ Can I ask about my asus laptop here?
07:25:04 PMGregInTexas goodbye ATI
07:25:14 PM_Jot_ sure Ashley, all kinds of subjects related to computers are welcome
07:25:15 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Where's my phone. I want to scan the code.
07:25:27 PMraptor222 gregintexas hello amd graphics!!;-)
07:25:28 PMajamison5579 RobbieF you go through so many host your going to have to do a "Where are they now: Category5 edition"
07:25:31 PMkyoshininja let's hear your question Ashley.
07:25:53 PMWreken too many converstions... im so confused
07:25:58 PMGadgetWisdomGuru It did work
07:26:04 PM_Jot_ GWG, can always download the show and capture the picture to get the code out
07:26:11 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I got the code
07:26:30 PMGregInTexas I missed it ... didn't grab my phone quick enough
07:26:31 PMmmdmurphy ha
07:26:39 PMAshley___ I have a asus eee 901 pc and when i start it up it sticks at the asus logo screen for around 2 minuites then a purple bar comes up alone the bottom :/ any ideas?
07:26:46 PMevermind writing up a manual in wiki
07:26:51 PMevermind for that python app
07:26:57 PMajamison5579 Yeah Toshiba
07:27:21 PMajamison5579 Make sure you have a fire extenguisher on hand
07:27:22 PMGadgetWisdomGuru The thing is, since there is now a Firefox and a Chrome plugin that will send a URL to the browser on the phone...they are less useful
07:27:24 PMevermind hp here
07:27:29 PMevermind no prob so far with that hp
07:27:41 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I keep one in my wallet though
07:27:53 PMGregInTexas what's new in 10.10?
07:28:08 PMevermind currently the "new" part is still growing
07:28:10 PMGoodGuy touch screen support
07:28:12 PMevermind nature of a beta
07:28:20 PMScorpio55 New Global Menu in the unr version
07:28:21 PMGregInTexas TOUCH!!!!
07:28:37 PMGoodGuy They showed it on The Linux Action Show
07:28:40 PMScorpio55 multi touch out of the box
07:28:43 PMnewzgerl Tell JOHN (cameraman) his computer is okay
07:28:53 PMGoodGuy said it was pretty good
07:28:55 PMGregInTexas could load it on an android phone ...
07:28:57 PMCurbuntu ROBBIE: Is it possible to increase the size of a VirtualBox virtual hard drive (.VDI file)?
07:29:02 PMAshley___ anyone got any ideas?
07:29:15 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Wish I'd written something this week
07:29:22 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I've been preparing for the New Year
07:29:35 PMGregInTexas hugan?
07:29:37 PMmmdmurphy Ashley - hold down F2, then turn it on. Does it boot to BIOS?
07:30:04 PMAshley___ nope it gets stuck at the bios menu bit
07:30:11 PMkyoshininja Ashley: have you tried to boot up another operating system from a USB key?
07:30:51 PMmmdmurphy Ashley - he's (she's) right, put in USB key and hold down escape key while booting...
07:30:58 PM_Jot_ Curbuntu, it is possible if you make a bigger one, and then copy the contents from the old to the new bigger one, the same as with a real computer
07:31:16 PMCurbuntu Using cloning software of some sort?
07:31:20 PM_Jot_ Curbuntu,
07:31:29 PM_Jot_ so yes, using cloning software
07:31:37 PMCurbuntu I'll check that URL...
07:32:06 PMkyoshininja mmdmurphy: ("he" is correct usage)
07:33:51 PMmmdmurphy kysohingja is kinda hard to tell...
07:33:52 PMkyoshininja I know...
07:33:52 PMAshley___ when i boot i press tab it shows the bios menu and its stuck on 1016mb ok installed memory size:1034mb and doeesn't move from thee
07:33:52 PMAshley___ there*
07:33:52 PMGoodGuy RobbieF-EricKidd: Any chance the photo series reaches "The Meat"?
07:33:52 PMGregInTexas you may have a memory stick failing, Ashley
07:33:52 PMGregInTexas have you tried booting memtest86 and running tests?
07:33:52 PMGoodGuy You can turn off the memory test sometimes
07:33:59 PMAshley___ i replaced the memory still no luck.
07:34:05 PMmmdmurphy And now the weather.....
07:35:10 PMGregInTexas hmmmm ... I have seen the memory slots go bad ...
07:35:10 PMAshley___ oh :/
07:35:10 PMajamison5579 Remember the days of Dependency Hell
07:35:10 PMGregInTexas it happens, but it's very rare
07:35:10 PMajamison5579 before package managers
07:35:10 PMAshley___ so it isn't a fixable problem by hand?
07:35:10 PMnewzgerl mmdmurphy I have pink clouds and it's about 22 degrees
07:35:13 PMmmdmurphy Ashley - take the memory out, rub an eraser across it - the golden contact parts, put it back in...
07:35:18 PMnewzgerl (sun is going down)
07:35:19 PM{BBI}Nexus{BBI} ajamison: Don't even go there... :(
07:35:21 PMGregInTexas you still should run tests on memory, just in case
07:35:52 PMAshley___ how do i run tests? and errm rub a eraser meaning a rubber right?
07:36:10 PM_Jot_ newzgerl, they are pink, just for you I bet
07:36:21 PM_Jot_ Ashley, yes, at the end of a pencil
07:36:23 PMmmdmurphy Ashley - yes, rubber (unless you live in USA, in which case, do NOT use a rubber)
07:36:30 PMkyoshininja Ashley: can you tell use when the system last worked for you, and under what circumstances the transition from working to getting stuck were?
07:36:30 PMajamison5579 Guru do you use GNOME or KDE
07:36:38 PMGregInTexas google memtest86 and download ... you need to make a CD, floppy, or USB stick so it can boot
07:36:49 PMGoodGuy RobbieF-EricKidd: You may want to consider adding a MD5SUM list for Perfectbuntu so we know if it's changed
07:36:50 PM_Jot_
07:37:09 PMGregInTexas thanks, Jot
07:39:05 PMchrisreich okay I've got audio at least, still working on video
07:39:05 PMGregInTexas great program, let it run a couple of complete cycles before you call your memory good
07:39:05 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I've decided I'm having fish for dinner.
07:39:05 PMWreken good decision
07:39:05 PMmmdmurphy instead of meat?
07:39:05 PM_Jot_ trout?
07:39:05 PMWreken dont use it as a weapon
07:39:05 PMGadgetWisdomGuru No. Tillapia
07:39:05 PMAshley___ Kyoshinja - I used it about a week ago today and then woke up one morning and switch it on and it didn't boot and i got a purple line alone the bottom of the asus startup screen, i pressed tab to get it to the boot menu and it says american megatrends and that stuff and it stops loading on 1016MB OK ) Installed memory size:1024MB)
07:39:05 PMGadgetWisdomGuru But I may wait till after the show winds down
07:39:05 PMGadgetWisdomGuru So I can pay attention
07:39:05 PMnewzgerl @_Jot_ sweet
07:39:05 PMGoodGuy If it doesnt get past the BIOS screen, Memtest wont run
07:39:10 PMGregInTexas right
07:39:22 PMGregInTexas it tells you a lot if you can boot memtest
07:39:32 PMAshley___ goodguy - thats what i thoguht :P
07:39:33 PMnewzgerl chrisreich, yay
07:39:36 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I keep trying to get Robbie to do a song and dance
07:39:38 PMGadgetWisdomGuru He hasn't so far
07:39:45 PMGregInTexas if not, it's usually a hardware prob
07:39:46 PMmmdmurphy I am thinking it "sold the farm"... "Gave up the ghost"....other phrases relating to this??
07:39:53 PMWreken What is the Temp. there?
07:40:04 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Mmdmurphy, it is bought the farm, not sold it
07:40:04 PMGoodGuy Its halting during the BIOS memory test.. I'd try disabling that and them try Memtest
07:40:05 PMajamison5579 Guru he did show the clip from him acting as a lad
07:40:06 PMmmdmurphy Right, sorry.
07:40:15 PMraptor222 robbirf you can do a panorama of a hockey game you just need an array of half a dozen cameras shooing at the same time, matrix effect style!!
07:40:16 PMkyoshininja Ashley: a single thin, horizontal line across the screen?
07:40:23 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Ajamison5579, yes. Him playing Fredric
07:40:33 PMraptor222 robbief you can do a panorama of a hockey game you just need an array of half a dozen cameras shooing at the same time, matrix effect style!!
07:40:39 PMAshley___ yes kyoshininja
07:40:43 PMGoodGuy Might get lucky and the bad memory bytes arent in the part used for the initial boot process
07:40:47 PM_Jot_ RobbieF, time for a nap?
07:40:54 PMWreken No dance, just do the weather
07:41:02 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Maybe he can help me write that country song I've been working on
07:41:04 PMchrisreich depends which country...
07:41:04 PMnewzgerl Hey, Robbie
07:41:06 PMmmdmurphy Microsoft has a pretty good (free, but you have to use windows) photo stitcher program.
07:41:07 PMajamison5579 You know what happens when you play country music backwards right
07:41:11 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Entitled, "My Droid got run over by my pickup"
07:41:13 PMGatorman Newzgerl, I don't know how you managed to follow the chat room, Robbie and Hillary without going nuts. Hats off to you.
07:41:36 PMnewzgerl Gatorman, hello! Miss you
07:41:52 PMGatorman It's way too busy for me to keep up with it all. Hello, Miss you too!
07:41:52 PMajamison5579 you get back your house you get back your truck you get back your significant other
07:41:57 PMkyoshininja Does anyone know if the memory in Ashley's machine is shared with video, or if there is a dedicated video memory? (I don't have one myself)
07:42:02 PMGadgetWisdomGuru The height alignment isn't quite perfect though.
07:42:18 PMnewzgerl Booo, see the evil spirit catcher? those knife things actually have fallen off near people. Very dangerous.
07:42:21 PMmmdmurphy I did a panorama - with my wife in it 4 times...
07:42:47 PM_Jot_ newzgerl, you should go and remove them yourself, and make a story about a crazy woman damaging it at the same time!
07:42:50 PMGregInTexas Ashley, does the laptop beep when it stops?
07:42:56 PMAshley___ nope :/
07:43:03 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Can someone help me write that one?
07:43:07 PMGregInTexas nuthin at all, eh?
07:43:09 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Because I'd love to get it out.
07:43:09 PMWreken No Robbie humor today!
07:43:26 PMmmdmurphy Ashley - something on there you need, or you want it to work?
07:43:51 PMmmdmurphy (I am thinking it could be time to pull the drive out and recover the data)
07:44:01 PMblakkheim maybe go back to emails ll
07:44:02 PMajamison5579 Hugin = CPU intenseive

07:44:05 PMajamison5579 i guess
07:44:13 PMajamison5579 ehh
07:44:22 PMajamison5579 not a country fan
07:44:27 PMGregInTexas you should be able to recover the drive with no prob
07:44:27 PMchrisreich did the system crash?
07:44:29 PMWreken Buzz Kill
07:44:36 PMraptor222 photometrix are very very hard (first time i did it i calculated parralax manually)
07:45:04 PMkyoshininja Ashley: currently checking on ASUS website forums...

07:49:11 PMevermind harrrrrr
07:49:14 PMGoodGuy I still have an unopened copy of Windows 7 Pro.... preordered it during the sale time
07:49:32 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Dear Eric, I am looking for someone to contribute under a creative commons attribution license a country song about an Android phone to my Android-themed podcast. Your talent is not important, as anyone is an improvement over me singing. Would you be interested?
07:49:33 PMGoodGuy Never switched from WinXP Pro
07:49:39 PMchrisreich Christy I wish I could see your adorable face
07:49:41 PMmmdmurphy We have boxes at work with 96 gig of ram, but I don't know details . They run SAP...

07:52:03 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Mmdmurphy, the running joke I have is to ask people to send Android themed music to the podcast so I don't have to make up bad Android-themed songs.

07:54:31 PMnewzgerl RobbieF Eric bio
07:54:33 PMGatorman Let's Google Eric
07:54:40 PMnewzgerl Yes, google Eric
07:54:48 PMCurbuntu ROBBIE: In a RAID-1 setup, should I be concerned about the lack of TLER (Time-Limited Error Recovery) on consumer-grade Western Digital hard drives?
07:54:49 PMAshley___ haha :P
07:54:51 PMnewzgerl @RobbieF Eric bio
07:55:10 PMGoodGuy We need UFC's Bruce Buffer for the fighter intros
07:55:12 PMScorpio55 Robbie did you check this out

07:55:33 PMmmdmurphy I have worked ON TV's
07:55:40 PMGadgetWisdomGuru He just got a guy off the street, loaned him a shirt, cleaned him up, and put him in the chair?
07:56:01 PMGregInTexas bass player?
07:56:01 PMevermind the nearest i got to tv's was when i was fixing them;)
07:56:15 PMmmdmurphy evermind - EXACTLY
07:56:27 PMCurbuntu ROBBIE: Just mainly a backup server.
07:56:47 PMEricKidd gadgetwisdomguru.........i never have a problem being silly
07:56:47 PM_Jot_ maybe Eric followed him home from the dreamcatcher
07:56:54 PMnewzgerl GWG lol
07:57:10 PMnewzgerl Christy was a backup server
07:57:15 PMCurbuntu There is a utility for WD drives that allows TLER to be toggled on.
07:57:30 PMkyoshininja Ashley: found another thread of discussion regarding bios corruption, and a last resort remedy is linked for addressing BIOS corruption:
07:57:50 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Newzgerl, my sense of humor takes some getting used to though, I suppose.
07:57:53 PMnewzgerl mmdmurphy what tv work did u do?
07:58:07 PMnewzgerl GadgetWisdomGuru I love it truly
07:58:10 PMWreken mine tooo , join the club
07:58:36 PMmmdmurphy My dad had a TV repair shop from about 1950 to about 1997. I have had my head inside the back of LOTS of TV's.
07:58:39 PMGadgetWisdomGuru When I was in high school, I convinced my math teacher, who numbered homeworks, to have a hundredth homework party. Any excuse to get out of math, I suppose. I even contributed some classic Math-themed music.
07:58:54 PMnewzgerl mmdmurphy I was involved with Street Legal
07:59:06 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Including my favorite, about the death of the slide rule, American Pi.
07:59:19 PMnewzgerl Is Katy's brother here?

08:00:11 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Newsgerl, if you enjoy it, you should listen to my new podcast. Where I sing, Droid Love Song #1, composed by me. Of course, Gadwil gave me a C- for it
08:00:11 PM_Jot_ stream died hehe
08:00:13 PMGatorman Bye Bye
08:00:14 PMEricKidd Thanks for having me!
08:00:19 PM_Jot_ thanks for the show Robbie and Eric, good job
08:00:20 PMevermind that was a rather relaxing show
08:00:24 PMWreken All in love..... bye
08:00:30 PMGregInTexas good luck Ashley ...
08:00:35 PMGadgetWisdomGuru EricKidd, we'll have plenty of time together if you hang around as a co-host.
08:00:48 PMnewzgerl EricKidd, good job
08:00:58 PMevermind importing some svn project into aptana
08:01:00 PMkyoshininja Ashley: is your eee 901 still under warranty?
08:01:06 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Newzgerl, nice seeing more of you. Figuratively speaking
08:01:21 PMnewzgerl GadgetWisdomGuru ha ha now I see what u mean :)
08:01:57 PMnewzgerl Ok, gotta run (snuck time off) everybody have a great week
08:02:13 PM_Jot_ have a great time newzgerl
08:02:16 PMkyoshininja Have a great week newzgerl
08:02:21 PMGadgetWisdomGuru This was fun. I'll have to try to do it again next week
08:02:23 PMnewzgerl Jot take care
08:02:29 PM_Jot_ you too Christy!
08:02:30 PMnewzgerl kyoshininja u2!
08:02:50 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I'm going to go destroy some flavoids in a box of soup.
08:03:06 PMAshley___ no luck with my asus laptop
08:03:11 PMAshley___ now one more quetion if i may?
08:03:19 PMkyoshininja Still here...
08:03:22 PMGadgetWisdomGuru We'll try
08:03:46 PMAshley___ on my dell inspiron 6400 laptop when i try install windows xp i get this error:
08:04:18 PMAshley___ hardware malfuction call your hardware vendor for support NMI: Parity check/ memory parity error *the systen has halted*
08:04:37 PMAshley___ It runs fine if i install ubuntu on it (wat im useing now)
08:04:56 PM_Jot_ that means theres a hardware error, your memory is broken, you dont go around touching the sticks with your hands and get them broken, do you?
08:05:12 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I'd try memtest though
08:05:14 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Just to be sure
08:05:29 PMAshley___ nope, but i have removed the memory and replaced it with new ones still no luck :/
08:05:38 PMGregInTexas ubuntu may be more forgiving in its install ...
08:05:45 PMkyoshininja Yeah, I agree with GWG try the MEMtest
08:05:52 PMAshley___ how do i do this?
08:06:05 PM_Jot_ download and boot that
08:06:19 PMkyoshininja Also, you might want to try installing within a virtual machine hosted by Ubuntu to see if it is working ok.
08:06:22 PMAshley___ is it avalible for uuntu yes?
08:06:22 PMGregInTexas memtest replaces the OS, so it has to boot
08:06:39 PMAshley___ yeah kyosh i have windows running in vurtual box fine
08:06:45 PMGregInTexas memtest doesn't need an operating system
08:06:48 PMkyoshininja Interesting....
08:07:14 PMGregInTexas it wouldn't be a good memory test if there were an OS running ...
08:07:30 PMAshley___ oh yes i see it's iso , i know this sounds dumb but how do i burn iso in ubuntu, as i only running ubuntu so i can use the laptop.
08:07:33 PMGregInTexas including a virtual one, in my opinion
08:07:34 PMkyoshininja Ashley, did you install the VM from the same Windows media you
08:07:49 PMkyoshininja are having problems with?'
08:08:33 PMAshley___ well i had no choice but to install ubuntu on the same drive i had problems with and i running vmware on that drive
08:08:37 PMAshley___ if that makes sence
08:08:56 PMGoodGuy Brasero iirc
08:09:11 PMkyoshininja Ashley: no, I meant the source media, not the target drive.
08:09:30 PM_Jot_ Ashley, you can also download the version for an usb-key and use that
08:10:00 PMkyoshininja But I don't have Ubuntu up and running now, but I usually right click the ISO file to burn, or I insert a blank disk and then select the file to burn from the Ubuntu pop-up.
08:10:28 PMkyoshininja That's how I typically burn the images.
08:10:47 PMAshley___ kyoshinija yes i did used the same media and okay illgive that a try now
08:11:28 PMGregInTexas Ashley may have a MB problem ... if I had it in my hands, I'd put a POST probe on it
08:11:30 PMkyoshininja ok, good to know, Ashley
08:14:10 PMAshley___ burning now :)
08:14:13 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I used to have a POST card.
08:14:38 PMkyoshininja Ashley: you might have a memory parity mismatch with your bios settings. Do you know if you have any ability to change the settings to assure compatible timings (wait states)?
08:15:06 PMAshley___ im not quite sure what you mean, im abit of a noob (A)
08:15:13 PMGregInTexas POST cards are kewl ...
08:15:35 PMGregInTexas when you switched out the memory, did you make certain that it was compatible?
08:16:03 PMAshley___ yes
08:16:04 PMGregInTexas not all ram works with all mother boards
08:16:08 PMGregInTexas ok
08:16:18 PMAshley___ its the same ram
08:16:23 PMGregInTexas good
08:16:40 PMkyoshininja ok, Ashley: what could be a possibility (since Ubuntu has no problems, but Windows does) is that you may be running into some "soft" memory errors. I'll post some links for you to check.
08:17:04 PMAshley___ i will try this memory test now , witch means ill have to leave chat, expect me back in about 5 minuites :)
08:17:16 PMkyoshininja ok.
08:17:23 PMGregInTexas memtest takes quite a while to run
08:17:30 PMkyoshininja
08:18:01 PMkyoshininja
08:18:40 PMGregInTexas I gotta go ... c y'all later
08:18:57 PMkyoshininja C ya GregInTexas...have a great day
08:22:00 PMkyoshininja Have to step away for a minute...brb
08:29:14 PMkyoshininja back, but have to get going...
08:29:32 PM_Jot_ that's life sometimes :)
08:29:54 PMkyoshininja I know, thanks, Jot
08:34:54 PMkyoshininja have to step away again...will have to check back later...
08:35:50 PM_Jot_ Thanks for sticking around EricKidd :)
08:36:32 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Are you sure he did? Or is the computer just still on?
08:36:39 PM_Jot_ they are both still there
08:36:49 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Oh
08:36:52 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Watching BSP?
08:36:54 PM_Jot_ they talked about the show in the couch-area and now are at the computers again
08:37:02 PM_Jot_ yeah, as only one, as usual :)
08:37:34 PM_Jot_ I don even know why I do it, I guess since it movs, I watch
08:39:29 PM_Jot_ maybe it is the royalty of being '1 viewers', or maybe that is the ustream multiple personality something
08:42:19 PMkyoshininja checking back..will be back later..
08:42:42 PM_Jot_ dont forget to check the front too, you never know what is going on in that part of the house
08:44:12 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I don't watch it much
08:44:51 PMGadwil-office Failbot must have found me.
08:45:35 PMGadwil-office *sigh* Guess I will be downloading the show again this week and watching tomorrow. I don't know how I completely forget this 2 weeks in a row.
08:45:54 PM_Jot_ don worry about it, Failbot found Robbie too this show
08:47:12 PMGadgetWisdomGuru And Christy was in the chatroom
08:47:24 PM_Jot_ he even had to hire a lookalike to do the show, and then ended up being able to do it, so it was two guys doing the show this time
08:47:41 PM_Jot_ Hillary was here too for a while as well
08:48:14 PMGadwil-office Am I seeing things or is there a new Admin in the chatroom?
08:48:23 PMGadwil-office Or is that the new Co-Host?
08:49:06 PMGadgetWisdomGuru New co-host
08:49:21 PMGadwil-office Ok.
08:49:35 PM_Jot_ name is EricKidd here
08:49:47 PMGadwil-office Welcome EricKidd, glad to have you around.
08:50:05 PMGadwil-office Now to watch the show for this week, and look into some stuff to make me not feel sick.
