6:58:06 PMHenryBB herro!
6:58:11 PMsr_wences Hey ABQTKY!
6:58:18 PMSparklyballs which camp am i in RobbieF ?
6:58:29 PMGWG What is the topic tonight, out of curiosity?
6:58:40 PMsr_wences This week I'm going to wipe my XPS13 and install Solus on it for my daily driver.
6:58:45 PMABQTKY So right! Sr_wences
6:59:05 PMsr_wences ANyone using SolusOS around here?
6:59:06 PMalbertr Hey
6:59:35 PMsr_wences Tonight's topic: Linux and the meaning of Life...
6:59:56 PMRobbieF mmm
7:00:25 PMSashaD Its time :)
7:00:30 PMsr_wences Woo hoo!
7:00:50 PMsr_wences What is the DING word for today?
7:00:52 PMDennis_Kelley Category5 are Go!
7:00:59 PMABQTKY SashaD Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to...reconfigure. Robbie should be relieved, very relieved that he didn't get an anguished plea from out in the desert...where it was close to 60F today.
7:01:15 PMgarywhite There's a machine that goes ding? Doctor Who reference
7:01:57 PMsr_wences I think RobbieF needs a rubber chicken.
7:02:09 PMSparklyballs the walll behind you with the clock looks like one of those stripped down linux desktop distros
7:02:38 PMsr_wences Boo! No swapping faces! Leave SashaD alone.
7:04:14 PMsr_wences Hangounts is barely even on life support.
7:04:23 PMsr_wences pull the plug already.
7:05:06 PMDennis_Kelley Hello HenryBB
7:06:00 PMHenryBB hey!
7:06:21 PMSparklyballs that answers my question as to who the new guy is
7:06:22 PMDennis_Kelley HenryBB Thanks for Being in the Studio!
7:08:13 PMDennis_Kelley Hi alpeck
7:09:21 PMDennis_Kelley Happy Birthday!
7:09:22 PMalpeck hey RobbieF i see you raised the counter tops up. everybody looks much more comfortable.
7:09:33 PMalpeck hi Dennis_Kelley
7:09:55 PMABQTKY SashaD, whisper to Robbie that auto exposure on the camera is on.
7:09:59 PMDennis_Kelley Send it by ISS!
7:10:02 PMalpeck ^I guess raise and up was over kill
7:10:31 PMalpeck logo is still low but love the new look
7:10:45 PMDennis_Kelley me too alpeck
7:10:48 PMHenryBB I like the iss idea
7:10:50 PMDennis_Kelley looks cool!
7:11:40 PMDennis_Kelley special effects on the cheap!
7:11:52 PMDennis_Kelley LOGO
7:12:12 PMalpeck I love the wall colour...can it not be used as green screen if you a careful about colour
7:12:50 PMalbertr Category5 logo is still to low - hidden behind RobbieF
7:12:58 PMsr_wences It kind of looks like one of those Hollywood gossip shows like Entertainment Tonight.
7:13:21 PMDennis_Kelley she is going to get flogged
7:13:21 PMsr_wences DING the bell if RobbieF puts his hands in his pockets.
7:13:24 PMSparklyballs the standing does look awkward
7:13:28 PMalpeck i think RobbieF's shirt at the moment would conflict if wall colour used for green screen
7:14:03 PMSparklyballs SashaD: , you are in big trouble, i almost got over the whole star wars / star trek thing, but DAY LECK
7:14:04 PMDennis_Kelley start adding things to the background as you go!
7:14:13 PMSparklyballs hang your head in shame
7:14:16 PMsr_wences OK room - I think we need to create a list of TV and movies that SashaD needs to watch to improve her nerd credentials
7:14:52 PMalpeck concave desk arrangement is a great idea
7:15:07 PMSashaD Please do!
7:16:22 PMsr_wences RobbieF likes it because it is like being on the bridge of the enterprise.
7:16:24 PMalpeck that's an easy fix RobbieF
7:17:02 PMalpeck green screen wall paint is an excellent idea
7:17:11 PMSparklyballs i'm still seething about DAY LECK
7:17:29 PMSashaD Sorry :(
7:18:28 PMsr_wences SashaD is now being attacked by the Dalek.
7:18:33 PMalpeck maybe move emergency lighting slightly to the left
7:19:07 PMSparklyballs what happens when two people speak, the camera spams out ?
7:19:11 PMDennis_Kelley just put a fake speaker over the emergency lighting.
7:19:20 PMalpeck they have that with skype for business
7:19:53 PMDennis_Kelley sounds complicated!
7:20:15 PMsr_wences Yep. That's similar to ho you can make lights blink tothemusic.
7:20:57 PMDennis_Kelley but you talk over each other sometimes!
7:21:00 PMsr_wences Literally - you take the output and amplify it and send it to the lights.
7:21:08 PMalpeck hahaha...same clip of JeffW
7:21:19 PMalpeck wide shot with a time delay
7:22:28 PMDennis_Kelley what happened to your camera man?
7:23:36 PMalpeck i am hungry...lets go straight to desert

7:28:03 PMSparklyballs it's pretty damn good, isn't it
7:28:03 PMalpeck i purchased the sound codec from pi
7:28:15 PMSashaD Although, I ought to have tried it myself
7:28:38 PMSparklyballs my RPI2 in the bedroom runs libreelec
7:29:02 PMsr_wences I'm using LibreElec running my digital photo frame in the diningroom. People are amazed by it. I control it with an old remote control.
7:29:16 PMsr_wences Pi2 also.
7:29:17 PMSparklyballs the other two pi3's are jenkins build slaves for linuxserver docker images
7:29:42 PMalpeck for the price it is great and i love it but HDhomerun still needs some improvements
7:29:58 PMSashaD That's a great use for it.. maybe I could do something like a digital photo frame for my wedding :)
7:30:21 PMDennis_Kelley for sure SashaD
7:30:59 PMsr_wences SashaD - I'll send an email and some photos and tell you my best practices for it. A few tricks that make it easier.
7:31:02 PMSashaD I think I'll order another one.. and then try and actually do it all myself (with tons of guidance)
7:31:04 PMSparklyballs one of linuxserver team is looking to do a digital photo frame for his impending baby

7:31:51 PMalpeck i definitely will be buying some more pi's....mmm...good
7:32:00 PMSparklyballs docker ftw for digital photo frame
7:32:12 PMsr_wences Hey Sparklyballs - what do you think of Pi-powered "magic Mirrors?"
7:32:22 PMSashaD I'm becoming increasingly aware of how awesome my friends are :)
7:32:27 PMSparklyballs lot of work for something in the bathroom
7:33:05 PMGuest_9152 Pi is like electronic Lego

7:45:50 PMAudioGuy I meant echo
7:45:50 PMalpeck i won't even allow a smart tv on my network
7:46:28 PMSparklyballs five hundred sex toys arrive after watching game of thrones
7:46:28 PMsr_wences I have no desire to have a computer listening to me all the time. Then again, it would be nice to have SOMEONE listen to me...
7:47:38 PMDennis_Kelley Alexa can you by me a Bentley with Someone elses money
7:48:09 PMsr_wences Most shows are beeping out the "ok google"and the "ok Alexa."
7:48:17 PMsr_wences If they have any brains.
7:48:35 PMalpeck manufacturers need to set defaults to opt-in rather than opt-out....shame on the manufacturer
7:49:01 PMsr_wences Yeah, like Amazon wants to make it hard to order.
7:49:38 PMsr_wences This is a company that has those little ordering buttons...
7:49:59 PMDennis_Kelley for sure, they wont make it harder to order. they will continue to make it "easier'!
7:50:55 PMalpeck as long as they will pickup the return shipment charges
