07:36:06 PMchrisreich what advantages _Jot_? I've never found any advantages to being married.
07:36:13 PMGuest_Harry he prob had double feed
07:36:37 PM_Jot_ chrisreich, ajamison said a 'nagging wife app' would come next soon, so that would take away al the advantages
07:36:39 PMGoodGuy I have been married 39 years.. I would do it again in a heartbeat
07:37:00 PMGoodGuy Have to marry the right girl
07:37:19 PMgpop7 I will be married 40 years the 23rd

07:37:50 PMajamison5579 Marriage has its downs but it also has its ups
07:37:51 PMchrisreich _Jot_ I was just being a curmudgeon.

07:38:52 PMinvinciblemutant guys please check if has 2 streams running
07:39:06 PMgpop7 congrats goodguy.
07:39:17 PMchrisreich maybe that is the secret for some of us, GoodGuy. I'll try it. I want to stay in this area until August 2015. After that I may boogie.
07:39:23 PMGoodGuy Thank you .. same back to you
07:39:25 PMinvinciblemutant i found that has 2 audio streams, i have to mute the foreground stream
07:39:36 PMgpop7 I see you have learned to say yes dear.
07:39:37 PM_Jot_ RobbieF, catastrophic failure? Did you let RobbieF use your computer again? You really should learn
07:39:45 PMajamison5579 anyone know a good cheap solution where i can upload my full system backup monthly so i can have an off site backup
07:39:54 PMchrisreich I'm using with only one stream running.
07:39:58 PMGoodGuy My wife was from Detroit.. I had a rep for never setting foot in there
07:40:11 PMalbertr hotcopy just works ;^)
07:40:45 PMchrisreich GoodGuy I met my first wife in Mexico City. Married her there and brought her to Rochester, New York.
07:40:48 PMGoodGuy Take a differential backup
07:40:53 PMajamison5579 That is Quantum computing Robbief
07:41:00 PMalbertr it's a snapshot
07:41:04 PMinvinciblemutant funny, i have tried on safari on macbook and firefox on ubuntu, they are both same with 2 audio streams
07:41:05 PMGoodGuy Maybe she was homesick
07:41:30 PMchrisreich Wife #1 is still here, living in the house that I paid for.
07:41:58 PMGoodGuy Maybe she stayed here, but missed the other lifestyle?
07:42:03 PMchrisreich she's now a U.S. citizen
07:42:14 PMinvinciblemutant this is the first time robbie if more hairy than eric !! lol
07:42:54 PMGoodGuy Unless she wanted to become a US citizen and used that as a way
07:42:55 PM_Jot_ things still just slide off on top over Robbies head though
07:43:15 PMchrisreich Don't know for certain GoodGuy what she may have missed, but she did not miss screwing the neighbor and the guy at the liquor store. Let's drop this thread there.
07:43:33 PMGoodGuy wise idea :-)
07:44:02 PM_Jot_ yeah, before we get a NaggingEricKidd app activation
07:44:31 PMGuest_Harry enough with the tacos and back to backup?

07:48:21 PMGoodGuy Need a VPN to bypass that
07:48:24 PMinvinciblemutant _Jot_: yes, i can ssh tunnelling, but i must make sure the connection will be there when i am outside the campus

08:01:10 PMrd_blair Nice demo RobbieF
08:01:25 PMgpop7 Until we meet again.
08:02:06 PM_Jot_ RobbieF, I saw a disembodied arm on the edge of the BSP, should I be worried about my sanity?
08:03:11 PMRobbieF :)
08:03:16 PMRobbieF yes,but for other reasons
08:03:50 PMtic-toc Are the cookies done yet?
08:03:57 PMRobbieF Oh yeah
08:03:59 PMRobbieF I had one
08:04:30 PMtic-toc You cant eat just one
08:04:37 PMRobbieF :)
08:04:39 PMRobbieF true 'dat
08:05:40 PM_Jot_ by the way RobbieF, any way to get that background-picture-file you are using on the demo-system?
08:05:54 PMRobbieF yep.
08:06:03 PM_Jot_ yay!
08:06:06 PM_Jot_ oh wait, how?
08:06:23 PMinvinciblemutant hi RobbieF
08:06:38 PMinvinciblemutant do you have any idea why i have 2 audio stream in a single browser tab
08:06:52 PM_Jot_ stereo? no, no idea
08:07:09 PMtic-toc Sounds like another window open
08:07:19 PMinvinciblemutant no other windows
08:07:29 PMtic-toc hmm
08:07:40 PMinvinciblemutant i am sure because the when i close the tab, it becomes silent
08:07:56 PMtic-toc kick it
08:08:04 PMtic-toc lol
08:08:22 PM_Jot_ does it have it when you keep the tab but use the mute on that tab?
08:09:38 PMinvinciblemutant i have to turn the player's sound mute
08:09:43 PM_Jot_ there is an animated gif on the bio-page of EricKidd too
08:09:56 PMinvinciblemutant then i have the background stream for the foreground video
08:10:14 PMtic-toc did you hit open all on web site by chance?
08:12:08 PMRobbieF Here you got _Jot_
08:12:08 PMRobbieF Widescreen:
08:12:08 PMRobbieF 4:3:
08:12:17 PM_Jot_ thanks :)
08:13:12 PMRobbieF my pleasure
08:13:13 PMinvinciblemutant that is the workaround i used
08:14:42 PM_Jot_ EricKidd, I thought perhaps there would be song again, because RobbieF has been hinting at that, maybe next time :)
08:15:53 PMRobbieF That's the Christmas special, _Jot_
08:15:55 PMRobbieF December 25th
08:16:13 PMEricKidd Sorry, no song tonight...Robbie wouldn't let me
08:16:17 PMtic-toc How can the man sing while he's eating
08:16:19 PM_Jot_ well, could have been some preview, after all, EricKidd's music is always nice
08:16:41 PM_Jot_ maybe it could be a world-record-attempt, playing and singing while eating cookies
08:16:56 PM_Jot_ or even freshly baked cookies, I bet such a record doesn't exist yet
08:17:44 PMtic-toc I think cookie monster has a patent on that
08:18:41 PM_Jot_ darn, why does he always get involved
08:19:18 PM_Jot_ I tried calling him about something like that, but as soon as I mentioned cookies, he ate the phone
