7:25:17 PMrevdjenk ABQTKY: do you know about the chat shortcut with autofill of names? type as much of a name that makes it unique, then hit

7:26:16 PMbp9 revdjenk: How cool. It even works on pidgin. Thanks!
7:26:24 PMrevdjenk tah dah
7:26:32 PMABQTKY revdjenk, once the fingers get warmed up I don't pay attention to 'shortcuts.' (Besides, I forgot.) 8-)
7:26:40 PMrevdjenk hee hee ABQTKY
7:26:41 PMSashaR2 To be fair, I do change my name from time to time :)
7:26:59 PMbp9 revdjenk: and I learned something new! Cool...

7:27:20 PMrevdjenk bp9: yes, learning is wonderful... why I'm here!
7:28:07 PMrevdjenk hee hee SashaR2
7:29:00 PMbp9 RobbieF: your title bar is off the top of the screen
7:31:15 PMbp9 I'd be trying to move the border instead of sliding the image underneath it
7:31:28 PMSashaR2 haha
7:32:41 PMTheFu What did I miss?
7:33:43 PMrevdjenk there is an image properties which gives all the information on a picture, also
7:34:00 PMSwamig007 Hi, I have recently come across the need to reduce the size of image ( potrait ) to 100 KB
7:34:15 PMTheFu ImageMagick?
7:34:26 PMSwamig007 and onwhat would be the bext approach for it in Gimp
7:34:32 PMbp9 TheFu: GIMP
7:34:35 PMrevdjenk TheFu: the studio camera test, commparisons on the little computers
7:34:51 PMTheFu Aaaaah.
7:35:17 PMSashaR2 The little computers.... love it!
7:35:27 PMTheFu I struggle with The Gimp. Generally prefer CLI tools.
7:37:05 PMTheFu Image "optimization" is an art form.
7:37:17 PMrevdjenk TheFu: yes!
7:37:53 PMbp9 SashaR2: You might consider putting the pictures on a website somewhere then email a link to the recipients.
7:38:13 PMbp9 Then they can choose if to download the high quality pictures
7:38:15 PMTheFu for img in "[email protected]"; do
7:38:15 PMTheFu NEW=${img/%.???/-opt.jpg}
7:38:15 PMTheFu echo " Working on $img ..."
7:38:15 PMTheFu convert -quality $QUAL "$img" "$NEW"
7:38:21 PMTheFu done
7:38:26 PMSashaR2 good idea :)
7:38:38 PMTheFu $QUAL - is normally around 40 for web uploads.
7:39:25 PMSolbu SashaR2: Ask why he aborted / canceled the save question wne closing Gimp. Some people need to know why, why not.
7:39:28 PMrevdjenk TheFu: but can you crop a certain part, that way... not easily or accurately I think
7:39:51 PMTheFu The Gimp is an amazing tool when you need non-trivial stuff.
7:40:02 PMFreeway Anyone have any suggestion for open source for Quickbooks
7:40:13 PMFreeway replacement
7:40:41 PMTheFu Freeway: Most businesses I know have outsourced that - accounting services.
7:41:21 PMTheFu When I was CFO at a tiny company, we didn't use Windows anywhere, ..... except .... Quickbooks.
7:41:22 PMSolbu RobbieF: It looks great in 720P.
7:41:24 PMFreeway well i have a small business
7:41:42 PMrevdjenk freeway, just started looking myself... homebank gnucash are top recommends by reviewers
7:42:02 PMFreeway I looked at gnucash

7:46:05 PMTheFu also provides options.
7:46:39 PMFreeway I am just worried about security
7:47:54 PMTheFu D.C. cameras ... a few yrs ago, I saw a demo from a DoD company showing off their integrated, live, Washington DC tools ... police, fire, city vehicles, cameras, gunshot sensors, etc were all part of this demo - live. It was posted to youtube with IP addresses.
7:48:21 PMbp9 RobbieF: I would not be surprised if they were remote desktop-ing into the cameras as the normal part of doing business.
7:48:46 PMbp9 (they means the owners of the traffic cameras)
7:49:21 PMTheFu I was able to ping an IP camera and fingerprint the device as a camera from the IP shown on youtube.
7:49:36 PMbp9 wow...
7:49:41 PMSolbu And kodi is acting up again.
7:49:53 PMTheFu Solbu: Fine here ... still.
7:50:19 PMTheFu So Sasha can be bought?
7:52:00 PMSolbu TheFu: I think you're to late. Dave(?) won the bid. :-)
7:53:40 PMTheFu ;) ... she said on the show that if she controlled the traffic lights, that a small payment would get her to make them change for you.
7:54:07 PMTheFu The mounteeeeeees?
7:54:57 PMGWG I'm attending the Virtual Homebrew Website Club Americas. We're in the midst of quiet writing hour till half past, when we start the club meeting if anyone is interested
7:55:31 PMTheFu They are a car finance company. Not much computer expertise there, beyond accounting programs, I bet.
7:58:07 PMBobK54 I'll be in Ottawa the week of the 14th....would you kindly warm it up a bit before I get there?
7:58:37 PMTheFu For driving, only 1 thing .... if you aren't passing, get out of the left lanes!!!!
7:58:59 PMrevdjenk TheFu: thanks for the ask noah site...
7:59:29 PMTheFu YW.

7:59:58 PMBobK54 electricity into radio waves.....Nikola Tesla all over again
8:00:25 PMTheFu Aren't those call microwaves? Ever had a microwave burn? I have.
8:00:47 PMbp9 Wireless charging can't be very efficient -- can it?
8:00:48 PMTheFu s/call/called/
8:01:03 PMTheFu Maxwell's law, right?

8:02:08 PMTheFu microwaves do cook meat.
8:02:35 PMTheFu s/meat/humans/
8:02:50 PMbp9 TheFu: I guess you're talking about the law that says the power of a radio signal weakens a lot over distance -- squared rule?
8:03:20 PMTheFu No. I was thinking about how A/C power is created using coils.
8:03:42 PMbp9 Ah a transformer
8:04:25 PMTheFu
8:07:33 PMbp9 Nice job, SashaR2!
8:07:45 PMBobK54 Happy New Year all !!!!

8:08:30 PMbp9 Not much difference between the two cameras so far.
8:08:34 PMTheFu Time to get that amazon order for all the things that Santa didn't bring ...
8:08:56 PMbp9 Both 4K cameras so it'll more about what features they have and how they help RobbieF :-)
