7:12:15 PMsparklyballs is there a jr_wences , sr_wences ?
7:12:34 PMDooley_da_Vulcan my wife used to call me a dweeb I think that was the term. It was when your computer cost more than your vehicle.

7:14:45 PMsr_wences He approves tht I am a nerd when it is useful. Like when I replaced the screen on his laptop.
7:14:57 PMDennis_Kelley you could be to your location by the time you get it to work!
7:15:27 PMsparklyballs will that bit where you raised your voice be in caps ?

7:23:23 PMDooley_da_Vulcan OOPS
7:23:26 PMsr_wences that's what they get for buying network cards at Gearbest.
7:23:33 PMsparklyballs jeff broke the internet

7:23:46 PMlichenx1 Robbie tried to send too many texts

7:24:15 PMsr_wences Someone forgot to pay the phone bill.
7:24:37 PMsr_wences OK. So what other essential movies? Terminator 1?
7:24:48 PMDooley_da_Vulcan this is like being all gathered up with nobody to watch
7:25:10 PMDooley_da_Vulcan feed back on roku
7:25:13 PMsr_wences I say we make sparkly hold on to the antenna and hold a pice of aluminum foil.
7:25:45 PMsr_wences ... a-a-a-and we're back.
7:25:53 PMlichenx1 you broke the ps3, you're moving out!
7:26:00 PMsr_wences Ha!
7:26:21 PMlichenx1 I want a ps3, I need my little big planet fix
7:26:35 PMlichenx1 also if you haven't tried ps4 VR, it's awesome
7:26:45 PMsr_wences I' just happy to have my RetroPi with NES games.
7:26:54 PMsparklyballs ha, i was at my sisters one afternoon and heard a massive crash from her kitchen, the boy who was 5-6 ish at the time had climbed up onto one of the kitchen tops and trying to get some biscuits, somehow managed to pull the whole shelf unit off the wall.
7:27:10 PMsr_wences I don't need no stinkin' fancy pants graphics.
7:27:28 PMDennis_Kelley hi SashaD
7:27:35 PMDennis_Kelley welcome back
7:27:37 PMSashaD Hello again :)
7:27:37 PMlichenx1 man sparklyballs can you send me some of those biscuits?
7:27:47 PMDooley_da_Vulcan what is their phone number, they think they are back but I do no t think completely
7:28:03 PMSashaD we aren't back on yet?
7:28:15 PMDooley_da_Vulcan on Roku you are
7:28:16 PMsparklyballs biscuits never leave this house after shopping
7:28:17 PMDennis_Kelley i see ya!
7:28:22 PMsr_wences @sashaD - I hear that the gap between the platter and the head is less than the size of a dust mote.
7:28:41 PMsr_wences but don't quote mo n that.
7:28:45 PMSashaD wow!!
7:29:10 PMSashaD ps. I'm starving, biscuits would be amazing!
7:29:10 PMlichenx1 put a ssd in lol
7:29:11 PMsparklyballs smack down onto a table, that'll either free up the head or kill it completely, lol.
7:29:50 PMDooley_da_Vulcan I am eating a double from Wendys
7:29:57 PMlichenx1 no wendys around here :(
7:30:11 PMsparklyballs more windy than wendy here
7:30:37 PMSashaD I'm getting a burrito on my way home :)
7:30:40 PMsr_wences tap it with the handle of a screwdriver.
7:30:46 PMsr_wences stick it in the freezer.
7:30:48 PMlichenx1 UHMBOONTOO MOTTAY
7:30:55 PMDooley_da_Vulcan Oh, if you want a cheap good locktite for your tech..... NAIL POLISH
7:31:40 PMsr_wences I'm roasting vegetables and some turkey kielbasa. - 20 more minutes.
7:31:41 PMDennis_Kelley i use nail polish all the time in replace of loctite
7:31:46 PMDooley_da_Vulcan you can even use it to paint over screw heads into their divot so they do not vibrate out
7:32:04 PMDooley_da_Vulcan a LOT cheaper by volume
7:32:05 PMSashaD That's a great life hack :)
7:32:27 PMsr_wences I use red nailpolish to mark which earpiece is the right one - half thetime I can't read the tiny lettering.
7:32:34 PMDooley_da_Vulcan swap it out with a SSD for performance
7:32:57 PMDennis_Kelley SashaD you look bored!
7:33:01 PMDooley_da_Vulcan it works great for locks and keys. different colors for different locks
7:33:13 PMlichenx1 swap it out with a pentium for performance
7:33:22 PMsparklyballs must be worse than watching someone else play games SashaD , lol
7:33:28 PMSashaD I'm not... lol :)
7:33:33 PMDennis_Kelley i know!
7:33:46 PMDennis_Kelley JeffWeston welcome back
7:33:52 PMJeffWeston thanks
7:33:58 PMsparklyballs that doesn't look like a ripoff of mac at all....
7:34:16 PMSashaD Watching Dave play is better than how frustrated I get when I die over and over :)
7:34:24 PMDooley_da_Vulcan usb 2 is like watching paint dry and usb 1 is like watching someone who is watching paint dry
7:34:34 PMSashaD oh my!
7:34:34 PMJeffWeston we should have a gaming show where we just frag eachother all show
7:34:36 PMDennis_Kelley how do you know MAC didnt rip off Linux?
7:34:50 PMSashaD good point Dennis_Kelly
7:34:52 PMlichenx1 I bet this "mac" comes with ports lol
7:35:00 PMDennis_Kelley thanks
7:35:07 PMsparklyballs cos there's no linux desktop that ever been worth ripping off
7:35:31 PMDooley_da_Vulcan disk duplicator. data duplicator
7:35:35 PMsr_wences sparklyballs - dude, that's harsh!
7:35:37 PMDennis_Kelley but the ideas behind linux is what Apple wants
7:35:42 PMsr_wences Let me think...
7:35:49 PMsparklyballs i love linux servers, but damn linux desktop, terrible
7:35:59 PMDooley_da_Vulcan you can see something that inspires you to copy it and improve on it
7:36:10 PMlichenx1 I love linux desktops compared to windows... 10 specifically
7:36:14 PMDennis_Kelley true Dooley_da_Vulcan
7:36:27 PMsr_wences I like the classic GNOME 2 desktop/menu, but what do I know, I like playing NES games!
7:36:30 PMsparklyballs oh i hate windows as much as JeffWeston hates lasagna making robots
7:36:35 PMSashaD Sometimes I don't realize I'm on camera (I have to figure out a way), so I don't look so spacey!
7:36:39 PMJeffWeston thats serious hate
7:36:41 PMlichenx1 sr_wences: you need more pixels
7:37:02 PMsr_wences LOL!
7:37:21 PMDooley_da_Vulcan what is the best reference for the environment you are in when you Ctrl+Alt +F2....?
7:37:42 PMsr_wences That's terminal...
7:37:50 PMsr_wences Google.
7:38:10 PMlichenx1 ctrl alt f7 then go back to f2 ?
7:38:30 PMlichenx1 or tablet for reference
7:38:38 PMDooley_da_Vulcan right, I ctrl alt f2 and go in there and run a desktop and then run kodi there
7:38:39 PMsr_wences Win10 desktop is a disaster. I have to work on remote servers that run Windows server 2012+ and that interface is awful.
7:39:00 PMDooley_da_Vulcan that wah I can go back out and most people cannot find my kodi
7:39:15 PMlichenx1 try doing tech support over the phone with people that don't realize they've been auto upgraded to win 10
7:39:18 PMsparklyballs i'm itching to get my hands on krypton kodi, but their ppa guy is on holiday
7:39:37 PMsr_wences Anyone here run 13? - Dooley, that might work for you jsut as well.
7:39:43 PMDooley_da_Vulcan I do not like the interface
7:39:58 PMDooley_da_Vulcan the interface on the new krypton
7:40:13 PMsr_wences But it's cryptic - security by obscurity, bro.
7:40:13 PMsparklyballs i don't like vertical layout skins
7:40:15 PMDooley_da_Vulcan sr_wences: what do you mean by 13
7:40:36 PMsr_wences Sorry, i3.
7:40:43 PMlichenx1 that's pretty awesome RobbieF
7:40:47 PMsparklyballs first thing i do with kodi anyways is get an aeon skin of one flavour or other
7:41:10 PMDooley_da_Vulcan I enjoy the confluence skin, its simple and has what I need
7:41:30 PMsparklyballs i don't like the look of estuary
7:41:35 PMlichenx1 I am a kodi noob, someone wanna point me in the right direction?
7:41:58 PMsr_wences Sorry, i3 is a desktop of a sort. it' actually a window manager - tiling.
7:41:59 PMsparklyballs lichenx1 , libreelec is great for starting out
7:42:25 PMsparklyballs
7:42:50 PMlichenx1 thanks
7:42:55 PMlichenx1 I still need a pi
7:43:09 PMsr_wences I have libreelec running on my Pi in the family room displaying photo on my digital photo frame. Great because I have a remote to manage it and it has built in samba to connect to file server.
7:43:23 PMlichenx1 Robbie's head or hard drive platters?
7:43:29 PMDennis_Kelley goo job sr_wences
7:44:01 PMDooley_da_Vulcan when in windows, I would rather prefer not having anything preload for speed for when you run it, but slow down everything elsel you are doing. I would prefer nothing preload and what I am running to run faster.
7:44:12 PMsr_wences I always say - check the connections
7:44:19 PMsr_wences and the cables.
7:44:24 PMlichenx1 sr_wences: what remote do you use?
7:44:51 PMDooley_da_Vulcan I have OSMC running on my pi that I purchased from CAT5
7:44:51 PMsparklyballs i use an aging harmony one remote personally
7:45:12 PMsparklyballs that's sam nazarko isn't it Dooley_da_Vulcan ?
7:45:24 PMsr_wences and old dell remote from a all-in-one. It's a rebadged remote but I forget what it is - Philips, I think.
7:45:42 PMsr_wences kind of an angular hour-glass.
7:45:47 PMlichenx1 I have 2 arduinos, at least I never have to dust.
7:45:48 PMDooley_da_Vulcan if it hit on end it you have less chance of damaging the platters of heads
7:46:02 PMsr_wences Power it up, baby!
7:46:04 PMDennis_Kelley they spent money to get it fixed
7:46:13 PMsparklyballs i used xbmc back on the original xbox for a while, had a long ish break and came back with dharma on 1st gen apple tv with crystalbuntu from sam nazarko
7:46:16 PMsr_wences
7:46:40 PMDooley_da_Vulcan sparklyballs: I am not sure
7:47:09 PMDennis_Kelley its worse
7:47:15 PMDooley_da_Vulcan so now what does JEFF charge the Kids if it works
7:47:18 PMsr_wences Booo!
7:47:21 PMlichenx1 LOL
7:47:35 PMDennis_Kelley 200 Dooley_da_Vulcan
7:47:40 PMDooley_da_Vulcan lol

7:47:48 PMsparklyballs cables, check the cables
7:48:11 PMlichenx1 JeffWeston: is a smart evil man
7:48:16 PMDooley_da_Vulcan the bios should do something
7:48:17 PMsr_wences JeffWeston - charge them hugs!!!!!
7:49:06 PMsr_wences (jeff obviously doesn't have teenagers)
7:49:07 PMDennis_Kelley RobbieF jammed it in too much
7:49:19 PMjwmp Have you tried hitting it?
7:49:23 PMsparklyballs they're probably stealing your loose change JeffWeston , lol. hugs indeed...
7:49:31 PMsr_wences Explosion in the oven - be right back!
7:49:41 PMlichenx1 always a good sign
7:49:48 PMsparklyballs DINNERS READY sr_wences
7:50:05 PMDooley_da_Vulcan could you have managed to knock a video out connection loose inside the PS3
7:50:11 PMsr_wences I use the fire alarm for a kitchen timer...
7:50:13 PMlichenx1 lol RobbieF was like haha shut up SashaD
7:50:31 PMlichenx1 (about the tv lool)
7:50:36 PMDennis_Kelley in my house i know dinner is done when the smoke detector goes off
7:50:59 PMlichenx1 I can burn boiled water.
7:51:09 PMsr_wences (cue the girl from ipanema)
7:51:36 PMDooley_da_Vulcan could it have been a loose video connector inside that when you rotated it enough around it came loose the rest of the way
7:52:00 PMsparklyballs i got some echo dot thing coming as a bounty, so category5 could be ordering me stuff soon, lol.
7:52:06 PMDooley_da_Vulcan just need to open it up and check your connections
7:52:32 PMlichenx1 stream stopped
7:52:33 PMDennis_Kelley what?
7:52:35 PMsr_wences Oh no! frozen again!
7:52:36 PMDooley_da_Vulcan NOT THAT PORT
7:52:45 PMsparklyballs ps3 blew up the studio
7:52:48 PMlichenx1 LOL
7:52:59 PMDennis_Kelley must have been hacked
7:53:00 PMsr_wences It's the hacker!
7:53:00 PMgpop7 Robbie what did you do .
7:53:09 PMlichenx1 or sr_wences is cooking in the studio
7:53:18 PMgpop7 Stream stopped here too
7:53:25 PMDennis_Kelley gpop7 he cant see that message, internet issue again
7:53:27 PMsr_wences You caught me.
7:53:51 PMsr_wences Dinner is ready - TTYL!
7:54:16 PMgpop7 Ok
7:54:26 PMDooley_da_Vulcan its like calling someone to tell them that their phone is out......
7:54:34 PMDooley_da_Vulcan arghhh
7:54:45 PMDooley_da_Vulcan Dammit Microsoft
7:54:58 PMDooley_da_Vulcan need to blame M$
7:55:13 PMDooley_da_Vulcan Back Again
7:55:43 PMgpop7 Should i refresh
7:55:49 PMlichenx1 yes
7:56:01 PMgpop7 Thank you.
7:57:17 PMDooley_da_Vulcan mine could get into my nerd groups
7:57:32 PMDooley_da_Vulcan I do not want into her male model group
7:57:47 PMsparklyballs i love macs
7:57:49 PMsparklyballs fa real
7:58:34 PMDooley_da_Vulcan well bluffing is easier without a FACE
7:59:03 PMalpeck good one Dooley_da_Vulcan
8:00:36 PMDooley_da_Vulcan I really LOVE the way SashaD does not do the usual.....UH.....UH....UH
8:00:47 PMalpeck how many games did it watch before it got this good?
8:00:51 PMDooley_da_Vulcan when she speaks or reads the news
8:02:00 PMDooley_da_Vulcan he was playing to win, but he ended up in a tie by aiming to only tie in stead of winning
8:02:07 PMsparklyballs poker is a game of chance at the base level, you play the man etc, but against a computer it comes down to cards , so a poker win is not neccesarily that impressive
8:02:14 PMDooley_da_Vulcan he was playing the best out there
8:02:33 PMsparklyballs yeah, but it's still luck of the draw end of the day
8:02:56 PMsparklyballs chess is more impressive for computers to win, there is no luck element
8:03:38 PMDooley_da_Vulcan but what if when you play poker you actually pick different hands and play as if you had that hand, and you play that way? even with tells that would really skew peoples perceptions of you play personality.
8:05:22 PMsparklyballs imagine what it would order if you "accidentally" while surfing wind up on an adult channel.
8:07:30 PMsparklyballs damn computers should stick to playing poker
8:09:39 PMDennis_Kelley or making coffee
8:10:00 PMDennis_Kelley HenryBB hello!
8:10:17 PMHenryBB Hello, world! ;)
8:12:50 PMDennis_Kelley RobbieF for the Win!

8:14:29 PMsparklyballs we learned tonight that ps3 do not belong on the mantelpiece
8:14:31 PMDooley_da_Vulcan lol
8:14:42 PMDennis_Kelley for sure sparklyballs
8:14:45 PMDooley_da_Vulcan or use a break away cable
8:14:50 PMalpeck way-to-go inertial sensor in harddrive
8:15:14 PMsparklyballs gravity
8:16:25 PMDennis_Kelley RobbieF - is there a general rule on the size the image will be after that operation?
8:16:33 PMalpeck my work laptop fell 4 feet onto a concrete floor and survived
8:17:33 PMDooley_da_Vulcan @RobbieF so DDrescue doesn't do exact size to exact size?
8:17:46 PMHenryBB 10/10
8:18:08 PMDooley_da_Vulcan such as dd
8:18:15 PMsparklyballs gnite all
8:18:19 PMDennis_Kelley i guess it would since he said that he did not have enough room on his laptop

8:21:49 PMgpop7 Goodnight all. Have a great week. RobbieF I know you will be able to find out the problem of the playstation.
8:21:59 PMDennis_Kelley he did it before the show. they one he did on air was a demo
8:22:48 PMDooley_da_Vulcan hmm, I use dd for burning Iso files to flash drives, copying HDs
