07:23:09 PMGoodGuy They have some interesting episodes also
07:23:11 PMAspidZent in one episode the guy mounted a old directtv dish to grab distant wireless...
07:23:22 PMchrisreich now I'm retired; since 2005. Disability due to work-related injury. Otherwise I'd still be going...
07:23:37 PMGoodGuy I think I watched it ages ago AspidZent
07:24:05 PMevermind well, sometimes you still need to know your error messages on linux
07:24:07 PMAspidZent yeah... maybe feisty era???
07:24:11 PMGoodGuy Since I wasnt running wifi, it didnt interest me as much as it could
07:24:12 PMevermind especially when youre using source tarballs
07:24:13 PMevermind =)
07:24:55 PMajamison5579 I heard MS was contemplating using some kind of repository method for programs that are MS Certified
07:24:55 PMGoodGuy I bought this router at a garage sale for $2..... has wifi, but my network is wired
07:25:08 PMevermind ajamison, yes, its called windowsupdate
07:25:12 PMGoodGuy Yeah ajamison5579... finally
07:25:13 PMevermind but i guess you mean their new approach
07:25:33 PMevermind we will have to see what comes out of that
07:25:36 PMajamison5579 no I mean a real Repository but regulated more like a marketplace
07:25:58 PMGoodGuy a Linksys WRT54G V8 (VxWorks stock)
07:29:05 PMchrisreich GoodGuy as I once said on the Soundbytes radio program ( ) "I've worked with radio all my adult life. I know how radio works. And that's why my home computer network is all *wired*"
07:29:50 PMkoda lol @chris seriously eh? :)
07:30:56 PMevermind well, some ppls like to share their stuff with their neighbours and the dude driving by in front of the door
07:31:06 PMkoda wow he's actually LOUDER then the music :)
07:31:06 PMchrisreich @koda yeah, seriously :->
07:31:13 PMGoodGuy lol chrisreich.. my feeling also minus any skill in wireless
07:31:14 PMoldhack Robbie is a one man show! He can do everything.
07:31:32 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I wrote this story.
07:31:35 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Will relisten later
07:31:50 PMchrisreich good deal GadgetWisdomGuru
07:32:02 PMoldhack GadgetWisdomGuru: Shameless plug?
07:32:09 PMoldhack lol
07:32:19 PMkoda @chris mine would be too if i wasn't sharing wireless with the upstairs neighbor
07:32:33 PMGoodGuy This is a great announcement
07:32:43 PMAspidZent broadcom!!! yeay!!!
07:32:49 PMchrisreich you have a good reason then, koda.
07:32:50 PMGoodGuy It could really help developers
07:32:51 PMkoda anyone have any experience getting gallium r600g goin on maverick?
07:33:03 PMevermind now, if they add their cablemodem os and gbit card drivers to that, thats a full deal=)
07:33:20 PMevermind nope, but lets have a look koda, what it is
07:33:42 PMGoodGuy If you are a Linux user, I'd buy Broadcom chipset hardware only from now on
07:33:48 PMkoda it's the new open source stack for the ati evergreen chips (hd5xxx)
07:34:02 PMkoda includes open source 3d
07:34:16 PMkoda had a problem compiling mesa
07:34:20 PMevermind hmm, seeing the gallium thingy and its relations, how about using ati's own linux module?
07:34:32 PMchrisreich Now that they no longer make/sell them, I'm going to press Alesis to release their Firewire driver for multi-channel audio mixers as open-source. I'd even take a binary.
07:34:33 PMevermind what was the exact error?
07:34:52 PMkoda if you mean catalyst it's not working with xorg 1.9 yet
07:34:55 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Oldhack, I like shameless plugs.
07:35:03 PMoldhack hehe
07:35:05 PMkoda hang on... lemme try again
07:35:11 PMevermind koda, you tried to compile mesa for a driver you found, what error did you get while compiling?
07:35:16 PMevermind good
07:35:34 PMevermind you might want to use if its a longer error
07:37:09 PMGoodGuy I never played it, but the kids did
07:37:25 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Also wrote those
07:37:48 PMGadgetWisdomGuru He's teasing me because I asked him if he knew how to pronounce Hauppauge.
07:37:50 PMchrisreich same here GoodGuy. My mother gave the Nintendo 64 to my kids. Grandma won it on a radio contest.
07:37:50 PMchrisreich \
07:37:58 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Be back shortly. Foo ready
07:38:19 PMchrisreich No one knows how to pronounce "Hauppauge"
07:38:29 PMGoodGuy My wife just founds that set in the basement and gave it to our son
07:38:37 PMevermind oupaje
07:38:42 PMGregInTexas my chat is not scrolling
07:38:44 PMevermind would be the orig pronounciation
07:38:53 PMGregInTexas nothing else is working today either
07:39:01 PMchrisreich Foo is important, GadgetWisdomGuru.
07:39:08 PMchrisreich Gimbuntu fail!
07:42:09 PMchrisreich except for Robbie's robbery.
07:42:20 PMGoodGuy Creeps who broke in didnt get caught by the Spirit Catcher :-(
07:43:40 PMGoodGuy Maybe it only works for seaborne assault creeps!
07:44:08 PMchrisreich or maybe they got caught AFTER they hit Robbie's home
07:44:33 PMGoodGuy I don't think they recovered any lost items
07:44:44 PMchrisreich SteveC1990 is here - let the party begin!
07:44:58 PMGoodGuy Waiting on Karma to get it's vengence
07:45:05 PMevermind this hugin application needs a preview option
07:45:46 PMevermind from a usability point of view
07:48:53 PMkoda @evermind: k just cloning mesa from git
07:49:18 PMevermind good
07:49:37 PMevermind btw, maybe the error wont happen now, git is the development repository, which is updated quite often
07:49:51 PMevermind check the revision number that you get and compare it to the one you had a week ago
07:49:57 PMevermind thatll show you if somethings changed
07:50:48 PMkoda yup...
07:52:31 PMGoodGuy 'They need to do this whole series on The Meat
07:52:48 PMchrisreich crap - my medicines are making me terribly sleepy. Or is it Robbie?
07:53:09 PM_Jot_ you need to mind your controlpoints better?
07:53:14 PMGoodGuy Probably meds.. Mine are causing it also
07:53:26 PMevermind wasnt the ground extrapollating at the last faulty pic?
07:53:32 PMGoodGuy Pain levels are overcoming control points lol
07:53:42 PMchrisreich GoodGuy - a fellow drug user?
07:53:52 PMGoodGuy Unfortunately
07:53:54 PMevermind dont bong it just up yet)
07:53:57 PMoldhack chrisreich: It's the interaction between the drugs and the Canadian accent.
07:54:03 PMchrisreich I hear y'a bud.
07:54:14 PMGadgetWisdomGuru It was food
07:54:15 PMGadgetWisdomGuru Typo.
07:54:17 PMchrisreich could be oldhack
07:54:19 PMevermind sure...
07:54:23 PMGadgetWisdomGuru I missed some things, but I'll catch it on the replay.
07:54:43 PMchrisreich LOL I knew that GadgetWisdomGuru. I was just bored.
07:55:28 PMevermind hell need more controlpoints at the ground
07:55:38 PMevermind especially where the white stripes are
07:56:05 PMevermind ever heard of sweethome3d?
07:56:14 PMevermind good free home architecture soft for all os
07:56:33 PMkoda mesa is compiling
07:56:49 PMevermind =)
07:57:55 PMoldhack neodymium?
07:59:32 PM_Jot_ if you have to be careful with animals, children, etc, who got in their mind to hand it to the big kid RobbieF?
07:59:40 PMevermind yes, but hdds are
07:59:43 PMoldhack lol
08:00:04 PMevermind hmm, con to ustream just broke
