07:02:06 PMagamotto You know it is hot outside when you can't think of eating anything cooked!
07:02:11 PM_Jot_ EricKidd, only Canandian songs? Does that mean you repeated all 3 songs a dozen times?
07:02:18 PMrevdjenk_ ~
07:02:46 PMGoodGuy Proud to be an American was written by a Canadian iirc
07:03:24 PMtic-toc_ Eric sounds just like Mickey Redmond....
07:03:41 PMGoodGuy My cat isn't fond of them either.. she hates the booms
07:03:48 PMOldGuyJim Eric, Check out Cesar Milan's remedy for a dog with noise issues.
07:03:56 PMagamotto My dog has been sleeping with earplugs the last couple of nights
07:04:48 PMagamotto yep, she tolerates the soft ones quite well
07:04:57 PMGoodGuy Read what they do for hunting dogs... have to train for gun noise
07:05:42 PMOldGuyJim "Nick-of-time"
07:06:12 PMchaslinux Robbie is that an OES pen?
07:06:28 PMagamotto Hmmm, sounds familiar... like Davenport during the Bix Fest
07:06:29 PMGoodGuy I believe they want to annoy folks with construction so more ppl notice they are fixing roads
07:07:53 PMagamotto We had one year where all of our major arteries in the area were being worked on... It was easier for me to walk/bicycle to work than drive or take the bus.
07:09:01 PMtic-toc_ they both leave headaches no matter how you spell it
07:09:50 PMchaslinux Sadly magicjack doesn't run with Linux... at least for initial setup.
07:10:09 PM_Jot_ EricKidd, you won't win cause I called, and I'm Jot, so I win! Yay!
07:10:15 PMajamison5579 chaslinux WINE?
07:10:38 PMchaslinux ajamison5579 have you tried with wine?
07:10:53 PMajamison5579 no was a way of me asking
07:11:30 PMagamotto I wonder what YouTube subtitles are like in Mandarin....
07:11:33 PMchaslinux Dunno, I don't have one, just someone asked me about it... I use ($60/year canada wide) VOIP.
07:11:54 PM_Jot_ agamotto, can't be worse than the English ones, with EricKidd being anti-american
07:12:05 PMagamotto :)
07:12:44 PMchaslinux Wow that's awesome!
07:12:53 PMagamotto Who is watching in Nepal?
07:13:01 PMtic-toc_ Eric's not anti-American. He loves the Detroit Red Wings
07:13:27 PMT061 RobbieF ubuntu PCs are in china i think
07:13:32 PMchaslinux Last game I saw IRL was Detroit vs. Toronto... Toronto got creamed.
07:13:37 PM_Jot_ tic-toc_ that's true, Eric isn't anti-american, but when google started subtitling, the subtitles said he was, because their subtitles are bad
07:14:08 PMagamotto Seychelles... that is interesting
07:14:45 PMagamotto What was that/
07:15:00 PMagamotto RobbieF - you forgot to say Ni hao.
07:15:34 PMagamotto ok, I am not sure where those came from... new shortcut?
07:16:30 PMagamotto Blueberry coffee? ok...
07:16:47 PM_Jot_ EricKidd, blueberry is like blackberry so you should like it
07:16:54 PMStraeger RobbieF you should try a cold press coffee sometime
07:17:17 PMajamison5579 eww cold coffee i can not stand cold coffee
07:17:31 PMajamison5579 Coffee is ment to be hot
07:18:06 PMtic-toc_ very hot
07:18:41 PMstevo with real coffee beans
07:18:47 PMajamison5579 Cold coffe is the work of the devil to coin a crazy fantic here localy (everything he does not like is a work of satan)
07:18:58 PM_Jot_ EricKidd is secretly really Rod Stewart?
07:19:17 PMinvinciblemutant hi
07:19:23 PM_Jot_ hi invinciblemutant
07:19:28 PMagamotto As long as you aren't singing "Do you think I'm sexy" at the top of your lungs at 72...
07:19:31 PMEmiel1976 hi
07:19:31 PMinvinciblemutant missed the first part
07:19:33 PMstevo hi
07:20:20 PMStraeger No, no, you let the grounds sit in cold water for 8-12 hours. It creates a concentrate without the additional acids, that can be added to boiling water. It doesn't have to be served cold.
07:20:51 PMagamotto I can't do coffee, full stop. Simply makes me sick
07:21:10 PMajamison5579 Coffee is the nector of the Gods
07:21:21 PMdoktah agreed
07:21:29 PMajamison5579 I do not function (effieciently anyway) without it
07:21:40 PMinvinciblemutant any mac users around?
07:21:45 PMchaslinux We still install Ubuntu 10.04 on all our systems... security updates still good for another year, less problems, etc.
07:23:27 PMagamotto I put 12.04 Mythbuntu on my HTPC... not disgusted, not excited either.... still haven't done my main box yet
07:24:17 PMchaslinux oh nice agamotto, are you on satellite or cable?
07:24:33 PMinvinciblemutant i found pogoplug is on offer in the US
07:24:42 PMagamotto Neither... cost too much for what little I would watch
07:25:02 PMagamotto I watch OTA, and fetch other stuff with Miro
07:26:11 PMchaslinux Cool... I ran MythDora for a couple of years and it was great, but too many machines in the living room now and I mostly use XBMC now with my ripped DVDs.
07:26:28 PMagamotto I see no point in paying ~US$70/month to watch/record from basically five channels
07:26:35 PMEmiel1976 I run XBMC on my raspberri pi
07:26:47 PMEmiel1976 runs great and no noice and cheap
07:26:56 PMagamotto chaslinux, I might move to XBMC once I learn more about how it does with recording telly
07:27:20 PMchaslinux agamotto it doesn't, but you can connect to a myth tv backend.
07:27:38 PMagamotto Hrm, might as well keep Mythbuntu then
07:29:03 PMagamotto You mean guest-addons, don't you?
07:29:14 PMStraeger Emiel1976 I'm jealous. I tried to get one on release date, but the server meltdowns kept me out...
07:29:37 PMinvinciblemutant it is guest-addition
07:29:49 PMagamotto Ahh
07:30:14 PMajamison5579 Nerd Rage
07:30:14 PMagamotto :)
07:30:33 PMagamotto Nah, rage is all caps with rude emoticons
07:30:34 PMinvinciblemutant and also install the usb "addon" to use usb
07:30:42 PMEmiel1976 Me to but i tried for a loonge time untill I could order one. I recieved mine begin June.
07:31:30 PMEmiel1976 It is a great toy with manny things you can do with it. I want more of them for XBMC and for other things.
07:31:30 PMagamotto
07:32:03 PMagamotto HP, Brother
07:32:03 PMtic-toc_ Eric just got the look. lol
07:32:18 PMEmiel1976 HP
07:32:27 PMYazid1965 @ agamotto Agreed
07:32:34 PM_Jot_ EricKidd, we're all your friends... Wether you should be happy with that or not, I'm not sure though
07:32:34 PMajamison5579 Epson
07:32:49 PMinvinciblemutant most printers are supported nowadays
07:33:09 PMagamotto True, but not all of the features...
07:33:22 PMinvinciblemutant hp and canon are well supported nowadays
07:33:29 PMagamotto I think the heat is getting to them...
07:33:50 PM_Jot_ agamotto, I think it started during the iwnter, so you must be right
07:34:03 PMajamison5579 if its 3 penguins then it need more cold air
07:34:09 PMajamison5579 to work
07:34:24 PM_Jot_ I think it means you have to put 3 toy penguins on it to make it work
07:34:29 PMagamotto Fax? heeheheh, I can't remember the last time I sent a fax
07:34:33 PMinvinciblemutant hplib by default works with any hp all-in-one
07:34:53 PMagamotto _Jot_, Are you sure it isn't sacrificing three penguins?
07:34:55 PMagamotto heeheheh
07:34:58 PMtic-toc_ (Dragnet) Just the fax ma'am
07:35:02 PMinvinciblemutant and canon multipurpose (MP) series comes with linux driver on their website too
07:35:07 PMajamison5579 Agamotto neithor do I till I went to school and it became cheaper to fax documents then spend 40 some odd cents to mail it
07:35:16 PMrevdjenk_ if that doesn
07:35:52 PMinvinciblemutant brother is neither popular here, nor in the east
07:35:53 PMagamotto Probably hasn't been submitted yet
07:36:04 PMinvinciblemutant brother is neither popular here, nor in the east
07:36:10 PMrevdjenk_ if that doesn't work put localhost:631 in your URL and cups will access many drivers
07:36:16 PM_Jot_ agamotto, I can't remember what you had to sacrifice them for, I already used all the ones I had
07:36:30 PMinvinciblemutant ..
07:36:55 PMrevdjenk_ would recommend konica-minolta laser printer.
07:36:59 PMchaslinux That's why I love laser printers
07:37:04 PMinvinciblemutant ..
07:37:12 PMagamotto I simply don't print unless I have to...
07:37:19 PM_Jot_ laser printers are great if you don't print a lot cause there is no ink to dry out
07:37:42 PMchaslinux Or if you print a lot because they can do a lot more pages.
07:37:56 PMagamotto Brother printers have worked quite well for us at Toys4Tots
07:38:14 PMchaslinux And for us too... I like Brother printers.
07:38:23 PMinvinciblemutant think before printing !!! that saves the world
07:38:24 PM_Jot_ that's important too agamotto, working under business-conditions
07:38:34 PMrevdjenk_ nice cup RobbieF
07:38:38 PMchaslinux So does the ink refilling place around the corner from us, they like Brother and HP.
07:39:27 PMchaslinux Has Cat5 done a show on FreeNX yet?
07:39:37 PMrevdjenk_ and brother, hp, epson, lexmark and konica-minolta provide linux drivers
07:39:50 PMrevdjenk_ #boycottapple
07:40:00 PMagamotto That ought to make eBay happy
07:40:10 PMstevo so does canon on more printers
07:40:16 PM_Jot_ I don't think so chaslinux
07:40:40 PMstevo most
07:40:47 PMtic-toc_ hello
07:40:51 PMagamotto Hmmmm, Stephen Hawkings next interface?
07:41:26 PMrevdjenk_ that bubble will burst
07:41:47 PMagamotto The most important question... will cats play with it?
07:41:54 PMchaslinux I remember seeing a hologram video game in 1983 (in Florida)... wonder what ever happened to that tech?
07:42:30 PM_Jot_ there are 3d led walls now that are a bit like that
07:42:36 PMagamotto Perhaps one should just not have any electronics on you at protests?
07:42:54 PMchaslinux Windows 8 upgrade set for $39.99, just got an email from CNet... Pretty cheap, but you still need to own Windows.
07:42:55 PMagamotto Who knows anymore...
07:43:28 PMinvinciblemutant mac os upgrade at $14
07:43:32 PMrevdjenk_ chaslinux: yes, that is the catch, isn't it
07:43:34 PMinvinciblemutant ubuntu is free
07:43:39 PMchaslinux Apparently you can upgrade from XP, Vista and 7.
07:43:48 PMinvinciblemutant still windows the most expensive one
07:43:59 PMajamison5579 invinviblemutant true unless your a buisness that wants to buy support from cannonical
07:44:05 PMchaslinux And less problems... ;-)
07:44:07 PMagamotto XP -> 8 ? That sounds like a painful transition
07:44:17 PMEmiel1976 chaslinux only 15 dollar as you hafe bought windows after june 2
07:44:23 PMajamison5579 Windows 8 sounds painful in general
07:44:38 PMT061 Windows 8 does not look that bad
07:44:40 PMajamison5579 not a fan of the consumer preview
07:44:52 PMT061 Looks like a web page but
07:44:54 PMajamison5579 it looks great for tablets and touch interfaces
07:44:59 PMagamotto Encrypted CAPTCHAs?
07:45:13 PMajamison5579 not traditional desktop
07:45:17 PMchaslinux ajaimson5579 I tried a fresh install of the consumer preview... it's as you said, really for tablets.
07:45:29 PMinvinciblemutant geoip?
07:45:29 PMtic-toc_ Windows 8 works great older machines. Better than 7 does
07:45:42 PMT061 Really?
07:45:53 PMagamotto BBC Iplayer being a good example
07:45:55 PMajamison5579 tic-toc because it has the graphical stylings of Windows 3.1
07:46:01 PMtic-toc_ I have 3 machines on 8 right now
07:46:04 PMchaslinux The problem we get is many people are not running legit windows to begin with.
07:46:04 PMrevdjenk_ T061: check this vid out comparing win8 to Linux
07:46:05 PMEmiel1976 On a tablet it is great on a desktop it works good on the desktoppart and as you use short keys the menu works also good on a desktop but not mij choice
07:46:10 PMrevdjenk_ T061:
07:46:27 PMajamison5579 I will likely run it in a VM at some point
07:46:32 PMT061 Nah i have no interest in windows. years of issues with it lol
07:46:38 PMajamison5579 once the preview progresses further
07:46:47 PMT061 Thanks tho :)
07:46:58 PMT061 brb
07:47:08 PMtic-toc_ I know 8 runs great even on legacy hardware
07:47:18 PMagamotto Like 'Canadian' pharmacies?
07:47:25 PMrevdjenk_ hee hee agamotto
07:48:17 PMagamotto Sure it isn't just ROT13>
07:48:22 PMagamotto ?
07:48:49 PMEmiel1976 Windows 8 is for 1 year free. The release prieview you can use for one year.
07:49:46 PMinvinciblemutant i think robbief is going too fast
07:49:49 PMEmiel1976 Download the old win 7 menu and install it in win 8 and you have a fast booting win 7 system.
07:50:18 PMtic-toc_ That may not work
07:50:32 PMtic-toc_ Not sure
07:50:55 PMtic-toc_ 8 boots different than 7
07:51:14 PMEmiel1976 In the first version the menu was still there but now they removed it. But some people are making menu's for Win 8 that are the same as it was in win 7 and work in win 8
07:52:28 PMtic-toc_ Yeah I know , I tried that and it wasn't a good result
07:52:57 PMEmiel1976 Here it work good but it was buggy.
07:53:16 PMtic-toc_ yes
07:53:16 PMEmiel1976 But there come menu's that replace the blok menu
07:53:25 PMEmiel1976 not from ms
07:54:12 PMEmiel1976 But for a tablet it works great. I want a Win8 tablet if the price it not to high.
07:54:31 PMEmiel1976 On my pc I stay with Voyager Linux and Windows 7
07:55:05 PMagamotto As opposed to DS9 linux?
07:55:07 PMtic-toc_ I am very impressed with 8's speed on a p4 dual core machine with 2 gig's of ram. It's almost as fast as my gaming machine with a solid state HD
07:55:33 PMagamotto that would be impressive
07:55:34 PMtic-toc_ The software is that good
07:55:52 PMchaslinux I wonder if they make money with that 404 page, not very professional for business...
07:56:12 PMtic-toc_ 8 needs less hardware and less memory
07:56:15 PMT061 I would not do that to windows 8 since it causes more issues playing with the system files. If i want a windows 7 like feel i would just go for 7 itself. Unless Microsoft provide it as an option to return to a classic like desktop (which is what they should do ) I would not go for it.
07:56:23 PMagamotto RobbieF What is wrong with TOR?
07:56:45 PMtic-toc_ onion
07:56:50 PMEmiel1976 Yea Win 8 is fast and will work on many systems better than XP if the pc is not to old. Even wIn7 can run faster than XP on some systems.
07:56:56 PMStraeger The Onion Router
07:57:16 PMtic-toc_ like me
07:57:16 PMagamotto I use it frequently...
07:57:18 PMStraeger Never played with it, myself
07:57:34 PMEmiel1976 TOR for going to the piratebay. lol
07:58:10 PMagamotto Nah, reaching people I know in certain countries with very draconian policies... like China
08:00:30 PMEightMilesFromTJ hi
08:00:37 PMT061 hi
08:00:38 PMinvinciblemutant hi
08:00:38 PMtic-toc_ Great show guys
08:00:38 PMEmiel1976 Hi
08:00:49 PMinvinciblemutant nice show
08:00:50 PMRon_Smith Hey RobbieF How can I get to link seems to be broke
08:00:52 PMchaslinux Thanks all... good night. Time for an ice cap ;-)
08:00:59 PMEmiel1976 till next week
08:01:05 PMYazid1965 good night all
08:01:10 PMOldGuyJim Good night.
08:01:11 PMtic-toc_ bye
08:01:13 PMStraeger Ciao, all.
08:01:32 PMinvinciblemutant bye..godo night
08:01:33 PMagamotto BRB, need to refill my fruit juice...
08:01:34 PMinvinciblemutant good
08:03:58 PMGuest_9850 Is it possible to hide from your isp with tor
08:04:54 PMagamotto I am not sure... some are using Deep Packet Inspection...
08:06:36 PMGuest_9850 I didn't thin it possible they are reporting torrent downloads of music and movies now
08:06:48 PMT061 good show all! Cya next week :D
08:07:51 PMagamotto Yes, someone here locally had to inform their provider that linux distros weren't 'warez.'
08:09:18 PMGuest_9850 agamotto I was wondering how do they tell what is copyright content
08:09:36 PMagamotto I have no clue
08:10:13 PMagamotto I think that some just presume that certain clients are only used by pirates or something
08:11:42 PMGuest_9850 maybe someone will get the chance to file suit against my local robbers Comcast
08:12:08 PMagamotto I am just happy to be out of the heat & humidity today
08:13:22 PMGuest_9850 I never knew 98 felt so good after a couple of 105 days
08:13:42 PM_Jot_ sure, windows 98 isn't all bad
08:14:20 PMGuest_9850 win 2k was the best
08:15:13 PMGuest_9850 Jot 98 degrees
08:15:58 PM_Jot_ I know Guest_9850 I was just making a joke :)
08:16:00 PMagamotto I don't miss Windows that much
08:16:32 PMGuest_9850 shooter games
08:20:31 PMGuest_9850 robbie should find a partner to do a Friday show Tuesday is a long wait
08:20:56 PMagamotto Nah, once a week keeps him busy enough
08:20:57 PM_Jot_ RobbieF should do a show every day, all day, so we can see how moving goes
08:21:21 PM_Jot_ he could use those camera-goggles for example
08:21:35 PMGuest_9850 the partner could do the friday shaw
08:21:56 PM_Jot_ like Category 5 Friday Night, EricKidd in concert?
08:22:19 PMGuest_9850 that would work
08:22:52 PMagamotto fun, at the very least
08:23:01 PM_Jot_ definatly :)
08:23:31 PM_Jot_ and a cooking show, of course
08:24:47 PMagamotto It would have to have Julia Child impersonations, of course


Does Not Include Lurkers
