May 20 15:03:36 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: KDE on arch = right answer
May 20 15:03:40 <M-Saunders> What's the best IRC client?
May 20 15:03:42 <EspadaV8> cchristiansen++
May 20 15:03:43 <Twister_Kuriboh> :), using xfce (was going to use lxde, but i hate the plainness on a non-ubutnu system)
May 20 15:03:44 <popey> irssi
May 20 15:03:44 <degville> ahahaha
May 20 15:03:46 <popey> [FACT]
May 20 15:03:47 <sbox> we are good at raging
May 20 15:03:48 <warmana> IRC online meet for LXF is a cool idea.
May 20 15:03:48 <EspadaV8> irssi
May 20 15:03:49 <degville> i'm using konversation
May 20 15:03:52 <degville> which is pretty good
May 20 15:03:53 <cchristiansen> konversation
May 20 15:03:53 <braintooth> dont know
May 20 15:03:54 <EspadaV8> kde, vim, irssi, arch
May 20 15:03:54 <bobthebob1234> What's the best IRC client?: http://webchat.freenode.net/
May 20 15:03:55 <AndreasFrom> I'll say Gnome 3, my computers is a couple of years old and doesn't run Unity!!?
May 20 15:03:55 <Twister_Kuriboh> xchat ;)
May 20 15:03:55 <felissilvestris> Gnome 3 has driven me to xfce, just wish I'd adopted it sooner, and vi
May 20 15:03:59 <M-Saunders> I wrote an IRC client called Tatanga once
May 20 15:04:04 <Twister_Kuriboh> best, mibbit XD
May 20 15:04:05 <M-Saunders> I'll see if I can dig out a screenshot
May 20 15:04:07 <popey> AndreasFrom: tried Unity2D?
May 20 15:04:11 <cchristiansen> Remember chatzilla?
May 20 15:04:13 <JonTheNiceGuy> M-Saunders: ii's pretty cool, but a little *too* geeky for most people
May 20 15:04:18 <Twister_Kuriboh> i do (kinda)
May 20 15:04:20 <thameslink> installed ayttm specially to come here
May 20 15:04:20 <degville> my main problem with tatanga was that it wasn't threaded. you had to press enter to update the display
May 20 15:04:22 <tristan2468> I keep meaning to get into xfce. I can't really get on with Gnome 3 or Unity
May 20 15:04:26 <EspadaV8> although the desktop is mostly moot, since the cli is where it's at
May 20 15:04:28 <AndreasFrom> popey: I'm using that, on Arch now though :)
May 20 15:04:38 <M-Saunders> degville: Wow, you clearly used it so much!
May 20 15:04:39 <Twister_Kuriboh> same :)
May 20 15:04:42 <popey> AndreasFrom: Unity 2D on arch?
May 20 15:04:48 <Twister_Kuriboh> XD
May 20 15:04:52 <cchristiansen> Does everybody here use arch?
May 20 15:04:58 <M-Saunders> cchristiansen: JonRob does
May 20 15:04:58 <degville> yes, nice for a curses interface though. well done on the tabbed message list.

May 20 15:17:32 <M-Saunders> sbox: Oh right, sorry, forgot about that conversation!
May 20 15:17:39 <jellyman> M-Saunder Unity is the reason I went to KDE.
May 20 15:17:39 <Twister_Kuriboh> ok then, hello
May 20 15:17:45 <M-Saunders> sbox: That's cool. I'll see if we have space in the next few mags
May 20 15:17:50 <JonRob> hello Theodore :-)
May 20 15:17:51 <nucc1> LXF_Andrew, you abandoned libreoffice?

May 20 15:18:06 <EspadaV8> i'm no gnome user, so i might've missed things, but has there been any talk of forking gnome 2 to carry it on?
May 20 15:18:20 <Darth_Tux2328> yeah, mint is continuing to use 2
May 20 15:18:20 <Twister_Kuriboh> hmm... idk
May 20 15:18:22 * geekyBodhi is now known as MayankSharma
May 20 15:18:22 <nucc1> EspadaV8, why are you interested?
May 20 15:18:31 <BeerW0lf> Unity looks like something to be used with a touch screen. I prefer the classic desktop experience with mouse and keyboard.
May 20 15:18:34 <M-Saunders> Why so much Spanish? Können wir nicht vielleicht a bisserl auf Deutsch plaudern?
May 20 15:18:34 <sbox> mike cool! then you should also look at the epic command: ceni
May 20 15:18:35 <EspadaV8> i know people said they were going to do that with kde3 but nothing happened
May 20 15:18:36 <popey> I expect a fair number of people will "defect" to other distros / desktops as a result of Unity in 11.04. I also predict many will come back at 11.10 or 12.04. (perhaps sounds arrogant, not meant to be)
May 20 15:18:39 <EspadaV8> nucc1: no, just wondering
May 20 15:18:41 <degville> Theodore: hello!
May 20 15:18:44 <nucc1> popey, i defected to fedora
May 20 15:18:44 <scott_n> Mint will be using gnome 2 for mint 11 but will probably go to gnome 3 for mint 12
May 20 15:18:47 <JonRob> EspadaV8 - there was, but it died after a week or two
May 20 15:18:52 <qwebirc52138> Unity is "Aimed at the moms and Dads" according to Jono Bacon
May 20 15:18:56 <Twister_Kuriboh> yep, one of the reasons that i defected to arch linux (um kinda)
May 20 15:18:57 <popey> nucc1: specifically because of Unity
May 20 15:18:57 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: Na klar können wir ;)
May 20 15:19:01 <nucc1> popey, yes.
May 20 15:19:02 <EspadaV8> JonRob: lol, motivation fail
May 20 15:19:05 <popey> qwebirc52138: pffft, what does that loser jono know? :D
May 20 15:19:07 <LXF_Andrew> nucc1: No, Unity. I've never used LibreOffice since I discovered AbiWord back in the day. Even now I have a much more powerful machine I'll stick with AbiWord
May 20 15:19:08 <M-Saunders> cchristiansen: Prima! Do wohnst in Deutschland oder?
May 20 15:19:09 <bobthebob1234> BeerW0lf: It is great on a touch screen, everything else it is crap on
May 20 15:19:11 <degville> unity and gnome shell are both broken thanks to dist-upgrade on my box.
May 20 15:19:21 <Darth_Tux2328> Do any distros use Gnome 3 by default now??
May 20 15:19:23 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: Nein, Yorkshire :P

May 20 15:19:55 <nucc1> LXF_Andrew, ah, abiword is a miserable clone of MS Office 2000. Libreoffice is very stable and fully functional for me now.
May 20 15:19:56 <popey> spamsnake: yeah, we put big warnings about that out
May 20 15:20:02 <M-Saunders> My Ubuntu 11.04 upgrade totally wrecked my installation
May 20 15:20:03 <Twister_Kuriboh> sigh... that's why i use xfce (or lxde)

May 20 15:20:18 <M-Saunders> cchristiansen: Cool, whereabouts?
May 20 15:20:18 <popey> spamsnake: unity is built on GNOME 2, no getting away from that, in 11.10 its built on GNOME 3 so that problem goes away.
May 20 15:20:18 <Twister_Kuriboh> um, lol
May 20 15:20:32 <thameslink> I installed 11.04 to have a play about with unity, it's not as got as the old unr launcher and it keeps saying my battery maybe broken

May 20 15:25:13 <popey> EspadaV8: haha, exactly!
May 20 15:25:19 <jellyman> Popey: agreed TuxRadar is the best podcast on the planet :)
May 20 15:25:21 <davmor2> tuxradar nearly as informative as that other show hey popey ;)
May 20 15:25:26 <LXF_Andrew> We could play Weston Sur Mere
May 20 15:25:29 <bobthebob1234> no just pop over, but mind the sheep

May 20 15:25:35 <braintooth> Agree with popey, lol the podcast
May 20 15:25:37 <M-Saunders> sbox: That's a good idea. Maybe after we've featured them in the mag!

May 20 15:25:40 <EspadaV8> hahaha
May 20 15:25:43 <braintooth> love, not lol
May 20 15:25:43 <sbox> TUXRADAR IS THE BEST EVEN IN CAPS LOCK
May 20 15:25:56 <M-Saunders> CAPS LOCK FOR TEH WINZ0RS
May 20 15:25:58 <popey> I totally misread that "CAPS LOCK" then
May 20 15:26:07 <DoubleDiode> How about a vodcast?
May 20 15:26:12 <EspadaV8> tbh, i think that might also be because it's every 2 weeks, so i only get half the TR lovin'
May 20 15:26:14 <M-Saunders> DoubleDiode: I'm not pretty enough
May 20 15:26:16 <popey> davmor2: there are no other shows. tuxradar is the only show ;)
May 20 15:26:38 <JonTheNiceGuy> DoubleDiode: I don't have time to watch a vidcast - can only listen to shows
May 20 15:26:50 * ubuntu has quit (Quit: Leaving)

May 20 15:27:17 * davmor2 takes a screenshot of the screen to remind popey of this day :D
May 20 15:27:21 <M-Saunders> bobthebob1234: It's a conspiracy
May 20 15:27:21 <EspadaV8> don't seen the point of video casts, can't watch them while driving, walking across the road, taking a wizz
May 20 15:27:28 <spamsnake> Has anyone mentioned RiscOS yet?
May 20 15:27:32 <popey> *Note: I lie.
May 20 15:27:33 <bobthebob1234> Thought so
May 20 15:27:33 <JonTheNiceGuy> lol
May 20 15:27:36 <M-Saunders> EspadaV8: Do you do all those things at the same time?
May 20 15:27:41 <EspadaV8> Acorn's <3<3<3<3
May 20 15:27:42 <M-Saunders> spamsnake: I plan to make a RISC OS theme for Gtk 3
May 20 15:27:46 <DoubleDiode> and the video codec to use......
May 20 15:28:02 * MikeN_ (~email@example.com) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 15:28:07 <popey> realmedia, its the video codec of the future
May 20 15:28:09 <LXF_Andrew> We were thinking abut hiving a section off from the main podcast to fill the gap between shows, but it would only be 5 minutes worth or so. Does that sound good, or would it be annoying?
May 20 15:28:11 <spamsnake> M-Saunders: Awesome!
May 20 15:28:11 <popey> apparently
May 20 15:28:15 <M-Saunders> popey: Yeah. And Beanz is the currency!
May 20 15:28:18 <sbox> PULSEAUDIO FTW (flamewar incomming)
May 20 15:28:20 <EspadaV8> M-Saunders: I should add that to my list of things to learn
May 20 15:28:31 <popey> LXF_Andrew: a 5 minute "TipCast" is something I've been meaning to do, but never got round tuit
May 20 15:28:38 <M-Saunders> sbox: PulseAudio makes me cry in my sleep
May 20 15:28:38 <popey> I think it could work well

May 20 15:28:41 <Darth_Tux2328> Andrew: what do you mean?
May 20 15:28:42 <JonTheNiceGuy> M-Saunders: Any thoughts on bitcoin?
May 20 15:28:42 <Twister_Kuriboh> what flame war about pluseaudio

May 20 15:28:46 <popey> and easy to produce if you batch up the recording
May 20 15:28:46 <EspadaV8> anyone here have an acorn emulator (RiscOS 3.1)
May 20 15:28:56 * hydrantmark thinks its already to hot to even bother donning the asbestos for any incoming flamewars
May 20 15:28:56 <MikeN_> Hello Linux Format people! :-)
May 20 15:29:01 <EspadaV8> there's a game i _need_ to play
May 20 15:29:04 <M-Saunders> JonTheNiceGuy: Our JonRob knows a fair bit about it. Looks interesting, but I don't know how economically viable it is
May 20 15:29:07 <popey> JonTheNiceGuy: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3832397/Photos/May%202011/IMG_20110520_150522.jpg <- 2K worth of kit a friend bought for bitcoin mining!

May 20 15:29:28 <M-Saunders> MikeN_: Cool, ta
May 20 15:29:31 <thameslink> I'd like to thank you lot and the other staff at LXF since I decided to try and get into linux 3 years ago you've provided the only consistenty engaging material I've found. Big-up yourselves.
May 20 15:29:31 * qwebirc99082 has quit (Client Quit)
May 20 15:29:32 <JonTheNiceGuy> popey: HOLY S**T

May 20 15:29:50 <sbox> jstitch of course
May 20 15:29:52 <Twister_Kuriboh> ;)
May 20 15:29:55 <felissilvestris> damn, got to go, but thanks again for the podcast and msa, it's always excellent
May 20 15:30:03 <M-Saunders> thameslink: Thank you, we appreciate that!
May 20 15:30:03 <Effy> NikeN: hola y gracias
May 20 15:30:05 <JonTheNiceGuy> +1 to thameslink's comment
May 20 15:30:07 <EspadaV8> popey: o.O why?
May 20 15:30:09 <Twister_Kuriboh> why would we flamewar about something like pulseaudio?
May 20 15:30:10 * qwebirc52138 has quit (Quit: Page closed)
May 20 15:30:13 <LXF_Andrew> popey: Exactly, we'd do all the recording and editing in one go. Believe it or not, but it takes quite a lot of Graham's time o edit out the injunction breakages, swearing and gratuitous German
May 20 15:30:21 <EspadaV8> how many bitcoins would you need to recoup that
May 20 15:30:28 <Twister_Kuriboh> swearing >.>
May 20 15:30:32 <felissilvestris> sorry, cat on keyboard, read magazine for msa, wotever that is
May 20 15:30:36 <M-Saunders> Twister_Kuriboh: Because it sucks, hates everything and makes kittens cry
May 20 15:30:41 * felissilvestris has quit (Quit: Leaving)
May 20 15:30:45 <DoubleDiode> audacity I assume?
May 20 15:30:46 <popey> LXF_Andrew: Oh, I appreciate that! We stopped editing at all on our podcast. We record live and it goes out the next day with no edits
May 20 15:30:47 <M-Saunders> Twister_Kuriboh: And has massive latency and doesn't work half of the time
May 20 15:30:49 * marxjohnson (~email@example.com) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 15:31:03 <popey> LXF_Andrew: a 5 min tip show might go down very nicely, people could submit their own tips and you just record them
May 20 15:31:11 <JonTheNiceGuy> That's a point popey, what was the "backing up lorry" in the last UUPC show?
May 20 15:31:17 <marxjohnson> Evening all
May 20 15:31:17 <popey> LXF_Andrew: the only problem is a lot of tips are command line based, and you really don't want to be reading those out
May 20 15:31:19 <JonTheNiceGuy> It sounded like a microwave
May 20 15:31:22 <popey> JonTheNiceGuy: that was my dishwasher
May 20 15:31:36 <cchristiansen> LXF_Andres: Or the top program for the fortnight
May 20 15:31:40 <Twister_Kuriboh> popey: why not read them out?
May 20 15:31:43 * felimwhiteley got stuck in a meeting.. hopefully not missed it all :s
May 20 15:31:45 <degville> MikeN_, thameslink: thanks! we print these things out and read them out to each other when we type 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade'
May 20 15:31:50 <JonTheNiceGuy> LOL
May 20 15:31:56 <M-Saunders> felimwhiteley: You missed the bit where we handed out free money
May 20 15:32:00 <M-Saunders> felimwhiteley: Never mind though!
May 20 15:32:00 <Twister_Kuriboh> felim: you didn't miss too much
May 20 15:32:07 <popey> Twister_Kuriboh: try reading aloud a command with lots of pipes and ` ' and ". people will make mistakes, and it's very dry to listen to
May 20 15:32:10 <EspadaV8> oooh, LXF_Andrew you should have a NSFW version with that included :)
May 20 15:32:10 <felimwhiteley> M-Saunders: Son of a diddly
May 20 15:32:21 <M-Saunders> felimwhiteley: Oh, and the secret to immortality
May 20 15:32:34 <M-Saunders> But back to KDE vs Gnome
May 20 15:32:37 <M-Saunders> I say Xfce wins
May 20 15:32:43 <braintooth> agreed
May 20 15:32:44 <popey> Unity!
May 20 15:32:44 <Darth_Tux2328> Gnome 3
May 20 15:32:45 <towy71> lxde
May 20 15:32:47 <popey> heh
May 20 15:32:50 <jellyman> KDE
May 20 15:32:50 <M-Saunders> TekWM
May 20 15:32:52 <bobthebob1234> they are all rubbish we need something new
May 20 15:32:53 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: *sighs* we sorted that out already
May 20 15:32:55 <spamsnake> Gnome 3
May 20 15:32:55 <Twister_Kuriboh> um... both lxde and xfce
May 20 15:32:55 <hydrantmark> Openbox
May 20 15:33:03 <M-Saunders> MWM
May 20 15:33:04 <popey> Oh yeah, Lubuntu is on course to become an official Ubuntu derivative, which is cool
May 20 15:33:04 <sbox> kde 4 here
May 20 15:33:04 <cchristiansen> obviously KDE
May 20 15:33:04 <AndreasFrom> just give me something GTK-based
May 20 15:33:06 <LXF_Andrew> popey: Aye, it would be dry listening alright. We'll add that to the ideas pile in the corner of LXF Towers
May 20 15:33:17 <sbox> and i use fluxbox to
May 20 15:33:24 <Twister_Kuriboh> hmm... enlightenment hasn't been mentioned
May 20 15:33:34 <Darth_Tux2328> nor has JWM
May 20 15:33:41 <sbox> what about ratpoison?
May 20 15:33:42 <M-Saunders> Twister_Kuriboh: That's because it has been version 0.00000000017 for a BILLION years
May 20 15:33:45 <marxjohnson> Twister_Kuriboh: maybe there's a reason for that;-)
May 20 15:33:47 <LXF_Andrew> Gnome 2.x for the epic boringness.
May 20 15:33:49 <degville> i find pulseaudio is slightly over-engineered for its purpose.
May 20 15:33:50 <hydrantmark> nor Pink Ponies.... naturally
May 20 15:33:51 <cchristiansen> Twister_Kuriboh: enlightenment used to be cool, no longer
May 20 15:33:54 <M-Saunders> Twister_Kuriboh: If Rasterman would sort his stuff out and get 1.0 out of the door, that'd be better
May 20 15:33:56 <Darth_Tux2328> but still,Gnome 3 or Openbox
May 20 15:34:00 <maxwildcat> window maker
May 20 15:34:01 <thameslink> I like openbox
May 20 15:34:01 <maxwildcat> :p
May 20 15:34:02 <popey> Go CDE!
May 20 15:34:07 <braintooth> or icewm
May 20 15:34:10 <spamsnake> Someone should write an IRC client for MikeOS
May 20 15:34:14 <maxwildcat> enlightenment was cool.. is it still alive ?
May 20 15:34:16 <bobthebob1234> lol
May 20 15:34:20 <M-Saunders> Window Maker rules, but is quite old now too
May 20 15:34:25 <M-Saunders> spamsnake: And a TCP/IP stack first though
May 20 15:34:27 <maxwildcat> still running it
May 20 15:34:37 <degville> MikeOS is an IRC client with Mike's soul being the only server.
May 20 15:34:39 <spamsnake> M-Saunders: Indeed, I was just thinking that
May 20 15:34:49 <spamsnake> lol
May 20 15:34:58 <marxjohnson> M-Saunders: use the BSD one, everyone else seems to
May 20 15:35:02 <M-Saunders> degville: Can I use that as the official MikeOS slogan?
May 20 15:35:09 <braintooth> maxxwildcat: I hear a bit about enlightenment every now and then but it never seems to amount to much
May 20 15:35:11 <LXF_Andrew> MikeOS doesn't have any networking yet, so there's 100% no risk of 'computer viruseseseiiii'
May 20 15:35:16 <maxwildcat> M-Saunders: (window maker is awesome on a remote machine you VNC to on a slow connection )

May 20 15:36:12 <Darth_Tux2328> Is MikeOS based on anything?
May 20 15:36:16 <popey> Wait a minute, have the LXF crew been to the pub before joining IRC?
May 20 15:36:18 * Patrick is now known as Guest97786
May 20 15:36:20 <popey> And if not, why not?
May 20 15:36:23 <AndreasFrom> does MikeOS exist?
May 20 15:36:27 <Darth_Tux2328> LFS?
May 20 15:36:39 <marxjohnson> AndreasFrom: I was just thinking that - it could all be a massive hoax
May 20 15:36:47 <Twister_Kuriboh> LFS: Linux from scratch
May 20 15:36:50 <marxjohnson> for a given value of massive
May 20 15:37:01 <LXF_Andrew> I don't think so. Mike meant it to be a learning exercise, so the point isn't to be the biggest or the best, just the best-commented
May 20 15:37:05 <Darth_Tux2328> but is MikeOS from LFS?
May 20 15:37:10 <MayankSharma> AndreasFrom, http://mikeos.berlios.de
May 20 15:37:12 <M-Saunders> Darth_Tux2328: No
May 20 15:37:14 <LXF_Andrew> No, It's not even Linux
May 20 15:37:16 <M-Saunders> Darth_Tux2328: http://mikeos.berlios.de
May 20 15:37:23 <maxwildcat> is mikeOS written in python where you simply import anything from the meaning of life in the universe to girls with great big t...
May 20 15:37:23 <Darth_Tux2328> ! OK
May 20 15:37:25 <Twister_Kuriboh> it's a live cd with tools to aid in the developing of a linux distrobution (with the linux from scratch pdf)
May 20 15:37:46 <M-Saunders> maxwildcat: Great big tarantulas?
May 20 15:37:54 <Twister_Kuriboh> lol

May 20 15:38:15 <Twister_Kuriboh> i thought the meaning of life was 42 XD
May 20 15:38:18 <M-Saunders> So X vs Wayland
May 20 15:38:19 <LXF_Andrew> Hi Mayank!
May 20 15:38:24 <JonTheNiceGuy> OMG. It's a real distro. I thought it was a hoax
May 20 15:38:30 <JonTheNiceGuy> s/distro/os/
May 20 15:38:31 <Darth_Tux2328> so cool
May 20 15:38:32 <Twister_Kuriboh> umm... combination of both?
May 20 15:38:36 <thameslink> ohhh I tried to LFS again the other day and failed failed failed at the glibc sanity checks
May 20 15:38:40 <M-Saunders> JonTheNiceGuy: Damn right
May 20 15:38:43 <AndreasFrom> i agree with Twister_Kuriboh
May 20 15:38:43 <cchristiansen> Boring, I say Chrome vs Firefox would be a greater flamewar
May 20 15:38:44 <degville> onTheNiceGuy: you can't hear the laughter in the office.

May 20 15:41:32 <AndreasFrom> So, any good native Cube-timers for Linux?
May 20 15:41:33 <biggles1000> erm... windows 7 mainly, as my computer hates running live cds to install
May 20 15:41:37 <LXF_Andrew> HUw!
May 20 15:41:40 * hydrantmark wonders if if there is some unwritten rule of the internet, whereby uttering Pink Ponies...... Naturally, automatically shuts off any ongoing flamewar and pre-supposes the need for Godwin's Law to be invoked
May 20 15:41:42 <braintooth> so... is Wayland ready for... anytime?
May 20 15:41:43 <LXF_Andrew> Afternoon Paul

May 20 15:43:52 <biggles1000> M-Saunders, i would run linux, but my system specs are too low http://www.sevenforums.com/member.php?u=86059 (mint live cd always freezes, ubuntu has failed on me too many times (declaring the hdd is dead etc.))
May 20 15:43:55 <LXF_Andrew> felimwhiteley, as you'll know from listening to the podcast, the GNU?Linux naming section of its FAQ is longer than the US constitution. Those people need to get on with their lives
May 20 15:44:00 <M-Saunders> mfraz74: We did "Write an IRC bot" as a Perl tutorial once, somewhere
May 20 15:44:06 <degville> JonTheNiceGuy: tbh, i forgot. that was one of the few weeks i actually discovered something. and i've got something for next time too, but after that's i'll try to mention it!

May 20 15:58:58 <M-Saunders> davmor2: Too easy. Make it assembly language and it's a deal :-)
May 20 15:59:07 <huw_> haha they'll never get around to doing that, let's be honest!
May 20 15:59:12 <frank_duck> How about Hanjie instead of a crossword?
May 20 15:59:17 <felimwhiteley> shouldn't be too bad assuming jokosher still works.. or starts too :)
May 20 15:59:23 <bobthebob1234> challenge: Play minecraft for a day, then try not to play it for 2 days :D
May 20 15:59:29 <EspadaV8> crossword with obscure linux commands

May 20 15:59:34 <hudzilla> \
May 20 15:59:40 <AndreasFrom> bobthebob1234: easy!
May 20 15:59:43 <hudzilla> I've just tried to explain pointer pointers to someone.
May 20 15:59:45 <huw_> bobthebob1234, checked out Terraria? better than Minecraft! honest!
May 20 15:59:49 <davmor2> M-Saunders, LXF_Andrew, JonRob, degville: challenge request produce and deliver the podcast using assembly based apps only :) (as per M-Saunders request)
May 20 15:59:52 <hudzilla> Can any of you do a better job? :)
May 20 15:59:53 <M-Saunders> huw_: But's not not 3D!!!!11one
May 20 16:00:04 <AndreasFrom> huw_: I'll try that, thx

May 20 16:00:12 <M-Saunders> Ouch

May 20 16:00:50 <thameslink> does it have its own distro though?
May 20 16:01:01 <AndreasFrom> nice penguin!
May 20 16:01:02 <huw_> lol you were never going to get away with that M-Saunders
May 20 16:01:06 <threedbeef> almost
May 20 16:01:06 <cchristiansen> Not really
May 20 16:01:11 <M-Saunders> ALMOST
May 20 16:01:12 <M-Saunders> SO NEAR
May 20 16:01:14 <hudzilla> M-Saunders: Yes, but I got some thameslink action inbetween :)
May 20 16:01:15 <huw_> i was planning on putting TUX on a line in the middle there
May 20 16:01:15 <felimwhiteley> M-Saunders: non fixed width font by default in Quassel fail ;)
May 20 16:01:16 <AndreasFrom> so close
May 20 16:01:16 <Dave2> ...that's a lot of people in here
May 20 16:01:19 <jellyman> thameslink You wrecked the ASCII!!
May 20 16:01:20 <bobthebob1234> 2-d minecraft? Shocking
May 20 16:01:23 <Theodore> M-Saunders: Really very nice
May 20 16:01:29 <thameslink> sweet
May 20 16:01:31 <huw_> bobthebob1234, trust me. it is absolutely superb
May 20 16:01:43 <huw_> more combat, more content, just generally more stuff to do
May 20 16:01:44 <EspadaV8> /ban thameslink
May 20 16:01:47 <Dave2> I go to the pub, come back, nobody here, go to a meeting, come back, 66 people what
May 20 16:01:47 <EspadaV8> :-D
May 20 16:01:59 <LXF_Andrew> thameslink, Are you the person who sent us the pic of a computer screen booting Fedora or something on the back of a train seat?
May 20 16:02:00 <towy71> thameslink isn't that a trainline that doesn't work
May 20 16:02:02 <M-Saunders> felimwhiteley: IRC without monospace fonts?! That's like listening to Bach harpsichord music on a PIANO!
May 20 16:02:10 <M-Saunders> towy71: That's every train line
May 20 16:02:19 <thameslink> umm no
May 20 16:02:19 <bobthebob1234> huw_; how do I get it on linux?
May 20 16:02:24 <felimwhiteley> M-Saunders: bah
May 20 16:02:24 <M-Saunders> Dave2: Cool. Are you drunk?
May 20 16:02:27 <marxjohnson> speaking of monospace fonts, whatever happened to Ubuntu Monospace?
May 20 16:02:32 <huw_> bobthebob1234, unless it works on WINE i have no idea i'm afraid :(
May 20 16:02:33 <degville> mfraz74: you do know that crossword was generated with ls -m /bin /sbin >crossword.txt
May 20 16:02:40 <spamsnake> Speaking of Bach, Iwas just playing some of his work
May 20 16:02:43 <Dave2> M-Saunders: I only had one pint :(
May 20 16:02:43 <huw_> i'm one of those sad gits who keeps a Windows partition around for gaming
May 20 16:02:50 <Dave2> I figured it was fine as my manager also went
May 20 16:02:53 <M-Saunders> degville: That's how I write all of my tutorials
May 20 16:02:57 <mfraz74> degville: That explains why I couldn't finish one
May 20 16:02:58 <huw_> lol
May 20 16:03:01 <AndreasFrom> huw_: me too, it's alright though
May 20 16:03:10 <Dave2> My mind cannot cope with the concept of this channel having activity :(
May 20 16:03:26 <huw_> dave2 yeah, i used to frequent this place until the activity bottomed out
May 20 16:03:30 <M-Saunders> Dave2: This changes everything. Again.
May 20 16:03:32 <huw_> hopefully this is the start of a new era!
May 20 16:03:38 <M-Saunders> A whole new world
May 20 16:03:39 <Dave2> huw_: how long ago was that‽
May 20 16:03:40 <felimwhiteley> Dave2: it's like... lug radio channel back in the day...
May 20 16:03:41 <huw_> i demand regular staff appearances!
May 20 16:03:46 <JonRob> Dave2 - lol, but if a new era starts the magazine will never be published again
May 20 16:03:46 * felimwhiteley wipes whistful tear from eye
May 20 16:03:49 <huw_> dave2, oooo, at least a couple of years ago now
May 20 16:03:58 <Dave2> huw_: liar, there wasn't any activity a couple of years ago.
May 20 16:04:11 <M-Saunders> So who has the best nickname here then?
May 20 16:04:12 <Dave2> I don't think there's been any activity in here in the time I've been here, which must've been since at least 2003
May 20 16:04:21 <huw_> haha
May 20 16:04:21 <towy71> me
May 20 16:04:22 <M-Saunders> I like "hitomato"
May 20 16:04:24 * towy71
May 20 16:04:30 <Dave2> (It might've been earlier.)
May 20 16:04:41 <huw_> my regular nick has been, er, nicked :(
May 20 16:04:46 <felimwhiteley> M-Saunders: clearly me
May 20 16:04:46 <huw_> obviously it wasn't very regular
May 20 16:04:52 <Dave2> M-Saunders: any idea when I firstj oined?
May 20 16:04:54 <towy71> beerw0lf looks good
May 20 16:04:56 <M-Saunders> felimwhiteley: Is yours an anagram for something?
May 20 16:04:56 <hudzilla> huw_: If you want degville to be active, you need to read M-Saunders's IRC Bot in Perl tutorial on TuxRadar, then write a Monome bot that lives in the channel.
May 20 16:05:05 <M-Saunders> Dave2: I'd say, yeah, 2002/3 or thereabouts
May 20 16:05:23 <huw_> hudzilla, oh jeez. can't i just learn about trackers instead? :D
May 20 16:05:39 * threedbeef has quit (Quit: AndroIRC)
May 20 16:05:48 <felimwhiteley> M-Saunders: eh... yessss
May 20 16:05:53 <huw_> LXF_Andrew clearly has the best nick, he's the only one with a proper staff tag! so nur!
May 20 16:06:03 * huw_ is now known as LXF_Huw
May 20 16:06:05 <LXF_Huw> hehehehehehehehe
May 20 16:06:09 <M-Saunders> huw_: He has to do that, so we can find him. It's like a tag
May 20 16:06:11 <LXF_Andrew> Good work huw
May 20 16:06:11 <cchristiansen> cheeky
May 20 16:06:19 <LXF_Huw> lol M-Saunders
May 20 16:06:26 * felimwhiteley follwoing the Bruce Perens logic of being yourself online.. also never being able to think of a good one that wasn't taken
May 20 16:06:38 * LXF_Huw is the new LXF intern
May 20 16:06:40 * Dave2 (~Dave2@freenode/staff/dave2) has left #linuxformat ("My poor window #23 can't keep up with this :(")
May 20 16:06:41 <LXF_Huw> no salary
May 20 16:06:42 <hudzilla> huw_: Trackers are more Mike's game. If you hand Mike a screenshot of some audio waveforms and a print out from OctaMED, he could probably hum the melody.
May 20 16:06:42 <AndreasFrom> Does LXF_Huw get payed by Future now?
May 20 16:06:44 <LXF_Huw> no work produced either
May 20 16:06:50 * Dave2 (~Dave2@freenode/staff/dave2) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 16:06:58 <cchristiansen> Yes, please allow interns!
May 20 16:06:59 <LXF_Huw> lol hudzilla. i believe you
May 20 16:07:07 <hudzilla> Dave2: Window #23? IRSSI, I'm guessing? :)
May 20 16:07:14 <LXF_Huw> that fugue he produced for the podcast was fantastic!
May 20 16:07:15 <Dave2> Yus.
May 20 16:07:31 <hitomato> M-Saunders: It's supposed to be hiromato actually. Spelling mistake...
May 20 16:07:35 <hudzilla> LXF_Huw: I think we all felt shamed when we heard Mike's fugue.
May 20 16:07:49 <mfraz74> Oh I remember listening to trackers back when I used RISC OS
May 20 16:07:58 <LXF_Andrew> What did I do for that challenge? Oh yes, I remember
May 20 16:08:00 <M-Saunders> LXF_Huw: Thanks, glad you remembered that fugue :-)

May 20 16:09:37 <EspadaV8> tea is win
May 20 16:09:47 <M-Saunders> poiyrssgj: Usually around a week before it's on the newsstands, in the UK
May 20 16:09:52 <cchristiansen> the program tea is okay..
May 20 16:09:54 <M-Saunders> thameslink: Yeah, it's great
May 20 16:10:02 <felimwhiteley> tea is indeed ftw, but machine tea is like sweaty sock juice
May 20 16:10:05 <M-Saunders> thameslink: No real mode though, so I can't run MikeOS in it :-/
May 20 16:10:07 <mfraz74> I usually get it on the Saturday befoer
May 20 16:10:08 <degville> LXF_Huw: so true! but i meant by about 18 months.
May 20 16:10:15 <mfraz74> So hopefully tomorrow :)

May 20 16:16:20 <LXF_Huw> i'm gonna have to go in a minute too :(
May 20 16:16:26 <LXF_Huw> i thought we said 21:00 for the IRC session?
May 20 16:16:29 * jemark (~firstname.lastname@example.org) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 16:16:29 <M-Saunders> LXF_Huw: But you're one of us
May 20 16:16:29 * jemark has quit (Changing host)
May 20 16:16:29 * jemark (~jemark@unaffiliated/jemark) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 16:16:30 <cchristiansen> There are three of us 15-16 year olds :D
May 20 16:16:34 <Darth_Tux2328> Hey, I just received LXF 145!!!
May 20 16:16:34 <gwil> I have to revise RE
May 20 16:16:36 <M-Saunders> LXF_Huw: You can't leave until 5:30
May 20 16:16:41 <Darth_Tux2328> !
May 20 16:16:41 <LXF_Huw> M-Saunders, didn't stop Effy apparently!
May 20 16:16:43 <MikeN_> Probably discussed this already, but how are people finding Ubuntu 11.04? Bit the bullet and installed Arch and GNOME3 last weekend. Could not get on with Unity.
May 20 16:16:44 <davmor2> shocked to not see an anonymous penguin on this channel
May 20 16:16:44 <felimwhiteley> cchristiansen: get off my lawn!
May 20 16:16:45 <thameslink> well I'm about to quit my job and do an access to HE certificate which is as close as I'll ever get to sitting GCSE's
May 20 16:16:51 <LXF_Andrew> LXF_Huw, Yeah intern, back to work
May 20 16:16:56 <LXF_Huw> :(
May 20 16:16:56 <M-Saunders> LXF_Huw: Effy has a gun and we're scared of him
May 20 16:16:56 <Dave2> GCSEs were somewhat annoying. Plus if I were doing GCSEs now it'd mean I'd have to do my final year project again and I don't want to do that.
May 20 16:17:05 <LXF_Huw> haha
May 20 16:17:17 <cchristiansen> felimwhiteley: what? are you 15-16 as well?
May 20 16:17:31 * jstitch (~email@example.com) has left #linuxformat ("Konversation terminated!")
May 20 16:17:34 <mfraz74> MikeN_: I've upgraded a few laptops to Kubuntu 11.04, had problems with Xorg and networking on some of them
May 20 16:17:35 * towy71 is now known as anonymous-pengui
May 20 16:17:39 <felimwhiteley> cchristiansen: eh no.. but you you folk need to get off my lawn
May 20 16:17:44 <AndreasFrom> cchristiansen: Isn't he just doing an old man impression
May 20 16:17:47 * anonymous-pengui is now known as anonymouspenguin
May 20 16:17:56 * anonymouspenguin
May 20 16:18:04 <felimwhiteley> argh you/youg
May 20 16:18:13 <gwil> oh god, anonymous penguin. Do we all ignore him?
May 20 16:18:17 <felimwhiteley> AndreasFrom: bonus points to you
May 20 16:18:20 <LXF_Huw> lol i was gonna say that gwil
May 20 16:18:24 <Dave2> felimwhiteley's not 15-16, he uses a tea pot, and teenagers don't use those.
May 20 16:18:30 <AndreasFrom> felimwhiteley: for what?
May 20 16:18:31 <Darth_Tux2328> ARCH vs. SLACKWARE
May 20 16:18:40 <felimwhiteley> Dave2: shuuut iiiiiit!
May 20 16:18:40 <M-Saunders> Darth_Tux2328: ARCHWARE
May 20 16:18:45 <Dave2> felimwhiteley: :(
May 20 16:18:49 <LXF_Huw> Debian vs the WORLD! because Debian can take it :p
May 20 16:18:51 <cchristiansen> AndreasFrom: for understanding him correctly
May 20 16:18:52 <gwil> arch, definately
May 20 16:18:56 <AndreasFrom> Slackarch
May 20 16:18:56 <M-Saunders> So Linux then
May 20 16:19:00 <cchristiansen> Arch
May 20 16:19:01 <MikeN_> Arch
May 20 16:19:01 <M-Saunders> How to get more market share?
May 20 16:19:05 <AndreasFrom> cchristiansen: felimwhiteley: Ahh i see
May 20 16:19:06 <felimwhiteley> AndreasFrom: lets say... storage
May 20 16:19:10 <Darth_Tux2328> arch doesn't install properly for me....
May 20 16:19:11 <Dave2> Buy shares in a market.
May 20 16:19:12 <Darth_Tux2328> :(
May 20 16:19:18 <JonRob> http://www.tuxradar.com/files/music/pauls_music.ogg
May 20 16:19:24 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: I happen to be a fan of Slackware for years now
May 20 16:19:25 <M-Saunders> Dave2: You win, flawless victory
May 20 16:19:28 <LXF_Huw> M-Saunders, it won't happen, not significantly. Windows install base is too large
May 20 16:19:37 <cchristiansen> market share? give everybody free LXF magazines >:D
May 20 16:19:41 <Darth_Tux2328> Slackware = dependency difficulty for me
May 20 16:19:42 <degville> M-Saunders: rename ubuntu-1104 to windows8_beta2.torrent
May 20 16:19:53 <AndreasFrom> yeah
May 20 16:19:55 <LXF_Huw> one thing we *could* all be doing though, is getting our MPs to press for more open-source in schools, government departments etc. that's realistic
May 20 16:19:56 <M-Saunders> cchristiansen: You send us the money, we'll hand 'em out :-)
May 20 16:19:58 <mfraz74> What we need is an official Linux distro for the UK like Pardus is for Turkey
May 20 16:20:03 <biggles1000> that would make it infinity% more popuar :P
May 20 16:20:07 <Dave2> Limebuntu
May 20 16:20:11 <LXF_Andrew> Fair point Huw, I've ditched Ubuntu on my old laptop in favour of Debian. It just works
May 20 16:20:20 <Darth_Tux2328> Really?
May 20 16:20:23 <LXF_Huw> cool beans LXF_Andrew!
May 20 16:20:26 * minino (~firstname.lastname@example.org) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 16:20:29 <davmor2> anonymouspenguin: nice, that feels more like LXF :D
May 20 16:20:31 <LXF_Huw> yeah it's finally got to that point. i love my Debian system
May 20 16:20:31 <DoubleDiode> windows > /dev/null
May 20 16:20:37 * frank_duck has quit (Quit: leaving)
May 20 16:20:43 <LXF_Huw> right i have to leave :(
May 20 16:20:44 <Dave2> M-Saunders: I've just realized I still have your Wave Race 64.
May 20 16:20:47 <JonRob> so if windows > /dev/null, mac > ?
May 20 16:20:47 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: I agree to some extent, but the pay-off is that it gives you full control of almost everything on the system
May 20 16:20:49 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: shouldn't that responsibility be shared out in the spirit of community? :)
May 20 16:20:54 <LXF_Huw> thanks very much everyone, it was lovely chatting with you all
May 20 16:20:58 * AndIrc_ (~email@example.com) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 16:20:58 <LXF_Huw> have a nice weekend! byeeeee
May 20 16:21:01 <M-Saunders> Dave2: Whoa
May 20 16:21:07 <gwil> JonRob: /dev/urandom > mac
May 20 16:21:12 <AndreasFrom> sudo rm Windows -rf
May 20 16:21:13 <M-Saunders> Dave2: Then I must have your... Banjo Kazooie?
May 20 16:21:16 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: is it that good? Maybe I should give Slack another chance?
May 20 16:21:16 <degville> LXF_Huw: bye huw!
May 20 16:21:17 <LXF_Andrew> But we don't have official national anythings in this country
May 20 16:21:20 * LXF_Huw has quit (Quit: yes! no!)
May 20 16:21:24 <Dave2> M-Saunders: I can't remember. It may well be.
May 20 16:21:25 <M-Saunders> Dave2: Er
May 20 16:21:27 <LXF_Andrew> Bye Huw!
May 20 16:21:30 <M-Saunders> Dave2: But I was playing Wave Race in November
May 20 16:21:34 <Dave2> Hm.
May 20 16:21:34 <jsm2625> jonrob: thanks
May 20 16:21:35 <Darth_Tux2328> bye Huw
May 20 16:21:37 <felimwhiteley> LXF_Andrew: you don't even have a Queen at the moment
May 20 16:21:37 <M-Saunders> Dave2: My original copy with my names and records
May 20 16:21:38 <gwil> LXF_Andrew: National food: Baked beans on toast
May 20 16:21:39 <Dave2> It must be someone else's
May 20 16:21:41 * M-Saunders = confusd
May 20 16:21:46 <Dave2> Why do I have a Wave Race then?
May 20 16:21:49 <Dave2> I never bought that game
May 20 16:21:54 <M-Saunders> Hrm
May 20 16:21:55 <JonRob> jsm2625?
May 20 16:21:56 <gwil> why is mike confused?
May 20 16:22:04 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: Yes.. and you 'll fell at home if you are familiar with the BSDz too!!!
May 20 16:22:05 * dg (firstname.lastname@example.org) has joined #linuxformat
May 20 16:22:08 <M-Saunders> dg!!!!!!
May 20 16:22:11 <dg> hi!
May 20 16:22:16 <M-Saunders> dg: Get ready -- there are people talking in here
May 20 16:22:18 <dg> someone said there were now people in here
May 20 16:22:18 <LXF_Andrew> Felim Why, do you want to keep her? I'll swap you for the queen of Ireland, Eamon Dunphy
May 20 16:22:23 <dg> I was shocked
May 20 16:22:24 <Dave2> M-Saunders: I already warned him
May 20 16:22:27 <M-Saunders> Cool
May 20 16:22:29 <davmor2> gwil: Dave2 got involved in a conversation with him
May 20 16:22:39 <Dave2> M-Saunders: I know I have some game of yours, anyway
May 20 16:22:47 <M-Saunders> Dave2: I have a Mario Party
May 20 16:22:50 <Dave2> And I think it's Wave Race.
May 20 16:22:52 <M-Saunders> Dave2: I'm sure that's not mine
May 20 16:22:53 <jsm2625> JonRob: Never mind, thought you were giving me the tune.
May 20 16:22:56 <MikeN_> I switched to Linux and I'm very happy. It does everything I want it to do and while the initial learning curve was steep, I spend a lot less time "managing" my Linux Laptop than my Windows Laptop. What joy...
May 20 16:22:57 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: Ok I'll give it a try!
May 20 16:22:59 <Dave2> M-Saunders: that one's probably mine
May 20 16:23:06 <felimwhiteley> LXF_Andrew: no we're showing her a good time but we aren't serious, just teasing! Just hold a beer out the Window sure he'll be over in a sec
May 20 16:23:13 <JonRob> jsm2625: well, thoough everyone would benefit
May 20 16:23:16 <JonRob> :-)
May 20 16:23:17 <M-Saunders> Dave2: Cool. Give me a shout next time you're in Bath, and we'll have a pint and game swap if you like
May 20 16:23:22 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: but a problem with Slack is that it dosen't have the unstable/devel version of Supertux
May 20 16:23:31 <M-Saunders> Darth_Tux2328: Complain to Pat V
May 20 16:23:37 <Dave2> M-Saunders: will do whenever I am
May 20 16:23:56 <Darth_Tux2328> Pat V?
May 20 16:24:01 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: The latest release is 13.37 and it includes KDE 4.5
May 20 16:24:04 <Dave2> Slackware guy
May 20 16:24:10 <MikeN_> Really got into Linux with Ubuntu and possibly "outgrown" it and now have moved on to Arch. What next, I wonder? Compiling everything from source. ;-)
May 20 16:24:19 <AndIrc_> ah... this is the life... beer garden, Guinness, free WiFi
May 20 16:24:29 <gwil> MikeN_: Linux from scratch FTW
May 20 16:24:29 <cchristiansen> MikeN_++
May 20 16:24:30 * M-Saunders = jealous
May 20 16:24:38 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: Ok, I'll give it a try!
May 20 16:24:39 <M-Saunders> AndIrc_: Nice work
May 20 16:24:50 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: Thanks
May 20 16:24:53 * JonRob is going to get the train and get back to exeter... no trains for two whole days :)
May 20 16:24:58 <JonRob> enjoy the weekend everyone!
May 20 16:25:02 <M-Saunders> Toodles
May 20 16:25:12 <cchristiansen> Goodbye
May 20 16:25:20 <jellyman> Cya :)
May 20 16:25:24 <Theodore> MikeN_ : No you do not have to do that in Slack.. You get an almost complete system after the first installation
May 20 16:25:28 <LXF_Andrew> Bye Jon, he types to the chap sitting two meters away
May 20 16:25:32 * JonRob has quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
May 20 16:25:37 <cchristiansen> Righhht, now time for a real question, who is your favourite person from LXF?
May 20 16:25:49 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: How to update Slackware? We have one at school that is ancient (ooo 2.3, kde 3, etc...)
May 20 16:26:00 <sbox> graham
May 20 16:26:23 <Darth_Tux2328> What is the new guy called?
May 20 16:26:28 <Theodore> MikeN_ : And then there is www.slackbuilds.org & www.slacky.eu where you can find any package you could possibly need
May 20 16:26:35 <cchristiansen> jon roberts
May 20 16:26:36 <sbox> Jonathan Roberts
May 20 16:26:42 <Darth_Tux2328> he seems cool
May 20 16:26:48 <sbox> agreed
May 20 16:27:08 <MikeN_> Theodore: I meant going really hardcore and installing Linux and everything from source.
May 20 16:27:15 <Darth_Tux2328> almost all of the podcast people are cool, it seems
May 20 16:27:30 <M-Saunders> Yeah
May 20 16:27:33 <sbox> I'll be back
May 20 16:27:44 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: If you have a look at the CD-ROM / directory, there is always a file called UPDATE.TXT (or UPGRADE.TXT) where the process is described in detail.
May 20 16:27:56 * sbox has quit (Quit: Lost terminal)
May 20 16:28:04 <AndreasFrom> Paul send be a book, so I might be kinda biased :) *falls deeper in love with the Linux community*
May 20 16:28:04 <M-Saunders> Terminal loss fail
May 20 16:28:14 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: You do not need to reformat/reinstall etc
May 20 16:28:20 <mcnalu> Theodore, MikeN_ : oh slackware. I too am a slacker. Recommend sbopkg.
May 20 16:28:28 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: I hope you're getting the chance to use it!
May 20 16:28:35 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: cool, thanks. But I don't think i can update anything without superuser privileges
May 20 16:28:37 * herrgruen_afk has quit (Quit: leaving)
May 20 16:28:42 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: If not, I want my 30 pounds back ;)
May 20 16:28:53 * AndIrc_ has quit (Quit: AndroidIrc Disconnecting)
May 20 16:28:59 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: You will of course need root access to do so
May 20 16:29:23 <AndreasFrom> hudzilla: I finished 200 pages and then I had exams and stuff, I have done some Gwibber hacking though :)
May 20 16:29:24 <Darth_Tux2328> darn.
May 20 16:29:46 <Darth_Tux2328> degville: there were no Linux stickers in LXF 144 for me
May 20 16:30:02 <AndreasFrom> was LXF144 supposed to have stickers?
May 20 16:30:04 <Darth_Tux2328> degville: were there supposed to be?
May 20 16:30:11 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: Great! The more you write, the bigger your own personal code stash will become. Sooner or later you'll have enough code already written that you can put things together super-quick.
May 20 16:30:12 <popey> Stickers!?
May 20 16:30:21 <popey> I'll keep it away from my 4 year old
May 20 16:30:31 <popey> his bedroom door is covered in any stickers he finds
May 20 16:30:42 <Darth_Tux2328> because it's the first time an LXF magazine has not come with anything bonus
May 20 16:30:50 <mfraz74> popey: My daughter is the same
May 20 16:30:52 <Theodore> Darth_Tux2328: But surprisingly, I have even managed to upgrade from 32bit to 64bit without reinstalling all apps.. Imagine this happening on Windows!!!!
May 20 16:30:57 <davmor2> M-Saunders: Challenge an lxf lfs
May 20 16:31:05 <thameslink> I got those stickers, my daughter stuck them all over my misses laptop she... wasn't pleased
May 20 16:31:13 <M-Saunders> davmor2: Challenge an LXF to LFS?
May 20 16:31:15 <M-Saunders> Huh?
May 20 16:31:18 <Darth_Tux2328> (booklet, poster, 'coding academy' thing)
May 20 16:31:20 <AndreasFrom> hudzilla: Yeah :) I've got "reading for exams" -holiday next week, am going to finish it then.
May 20 16:31:43 <davmor2> M-Saunders: A LXF linux from scatch
May 20 16:31:44 <Darth_Tux2328> Thedore: wow! I don't think I've even ever used 64 bit windows
May 20 16:31:47 <AndreasFrom> hudzilla: Plus, this damn 3x3x3 cube steals all my time :D
May 20 16:32:07 <Darth_Tux2328> ooops: Theodore:
May 20 16:32:12 <M-Saunders> davmor2: Might be nice if we had the luxury of all that time :-)
May 20 16:32:24 <mfraz74> Only 64 bit linux I run is on my server
May 20 16:32:27 <davmor2> M-Saunders: HAHA
May 20 16:32:30 <felimwhiteley> M-Saunders: btw are you using your festival powered IRC clinet? Actually could use one here to work and listen in here..
May 20 16:32:33 <degville> Darth_Tux2328: there were supposed to be stickers in the US edition.
May 20 16:32:38 <gwil> I'm wondering, which OS projects is the best for a contribution. The problem is that I know ruby and very few, well used projects are written in it. I know a bit of C++ with Qt. Does anyone here have a C++/Qt project they wouldn't mind me helping with?
May 20 16:32:42 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: I hope you have a good cube. My own speed cube is so nice compared to the nasty official ones.
May 20 16:32:51 <Darth_Tux2328> degville: ah, I guess that explains it
May 20 16:33:01 <Darth_Tux2328> degville: that's too bad
May 20 16:33:08 <M-Saunders> felimwhiteley: I was just looking for the code, but sadly I don't have it on my work machine :-(
May 20 16:33:12 <gwil> I keep starting my own projects but neve finishing them. I'm sure its the same with everyone though
May 20 16:33:19 <felimwhiteley> doh
May 20 16:33:30 <Theodore> I am sorry but I have to leave now.. It was really nice to be here for the first time!!!!!
May 20 16:33:38 <Darth_Tux2328> QUESTION: how supported are Macs for Linux?
May 20 16:33:42 <M-Saunders> gwil: I think on Freshmeat you can search by language, and see if there are any projects that need help
May 20 16:33:45 <AndreasFrom> hudzilla: I've just got an off. Rubik's one, but I've lubed it. I hit 28.6 sec. yesterday. New personal best and it was in front of my class :)
May 20 16:33:46 <M-Saunders> Theodore: Bye!
May 20 16:33:47 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: thanks for your suggestions
May 20 16:33:49 <davmor2> M-Saunders: you have the advantage of being able to use the xfcd excuse for having sword fights in the office though (code compiling)
May 20 16:33:56 <Darth_Tux2328> Theodore: ciao!
May 20 16:34:01 <M-Saunders> davmor2: We have sword fights in the office anyway
May 20 16:34:06 <Theodore> I promiss to be back next time
May 20 16:34:09 <M-Saunders> davmor2: As stress relief
May 20 16:34:13 <Theodore> Glad to see you all
May 20 16:34:20 <davmor2> M-Saunders: haha wouldn't surprise me
May 20 16:34:29 <biggles1000> bye all
May 20 16:34:34 <Darth_Tux2328> ciao
May 20 16:34:38 <AndreasFrom> M-Saunders: You should record a typical work day! I wanna see that.
May 20 16:34:40 <LXF_Andrew> Ciao everybody, I'm off to join Effy at the water slide
May 20 16:34:42 <M-Saunders> davmor2: I carved the MikeOS cat logo into Andrew's chest in a fit of rage once
May 20 16:34:52 <degville> Darth_Tux2328: i'll mention it to our magazine team and see whether we can do the same thing for other regions.
May 20 16:34:52 <M-Saunders> LXF_Andrew: Bye-a!
May 20 16:35:01 * biggles1000 has quit (Quit: Leaving)

May 20 16:35:22 <Darth_Tux2328> degville: thanks, I'd love some Linux stickers!
May 20 16:35:23 <M-Saunders> And then there were 57
May 20 16:35:41 <Darth_Tux2328> Thedore: Thanks!

May 20 16:36:00 <M-Saunders> gwil: End of Flash coming, methinks
May 20 16:36:01 <Theodore> This applies to anybody
May 20 16:36:06 <cchristiansen> is it all HTML5?
May 20 16:36:08 <Theodore> Bye
May 20 16:36:09 <M-Saunders> And too right -- Flash is terrible (well, the plugin)
May 20 16:36:10 <AndreasFrom> There are a lot of things going on with JS these days
May 20 16:36:12 * Theodore has quit (Quit: Leaving)
May 20 16:36:14 <cchristiansen> and javascipt?
May 20 16:36:36 <felimwhiteley> hmm I played it in FF4 would that have been flash or JS.. I didn't really look
May 20 16:36:50 <davmor2> M-Saunders: best browser to play angry birds in as a challenge :D

May 20 16:37:36 <hudzilla> MayankSharma: And time for the pub in others - hurray!
May 20 16:37:41 <AndreasFrom> I've got an hour till dinner :)
May 20 16:37:41 <hudzilla> MayankSharma: Hello, BTW :)
May 20 16:37:52 <MayankSharma> you (we, everyone) should do this more often
May 20 16:37:52 <M-Saunders> Darth_Tux2328: Nevar!
May 20 16:38:03 <MayankSharma> hi hudzilla
May 20 16:38:09 <mfraz74> hudzilla: Think I'll treat myself to a cider instead
May 20 16:38:19 <Darth_Tux2328> M-Saunders: cool
May 20 16:38:23 <gwil> cchristiansen, M-Saunders: Pretty much and yes, the end if flash is neigh. :)
May 20 16:38:36 <hudzilla> MayankSharma: Are you firing on all cylinders nowadays?
May 20 16:38:50 <MayankSharma> I imagined this would be more verbose than email but...
May 20 16:38:56 <cchristiansen> The day when Flash is obsolete will be one of the most important days in the history of LInux!
May 20 16:39:07 <gwil> M-Saunders: How do I find projects which would like help on freshmeat?
May 20 16:39:14 <AndreasFrom> gwil: Flash is always neigh. It's everywhere! /deliberate misunderstanding
May 20 16:39:14 <M-Saunders> cchristiansen: And the interwebs in general I think
May 20 16:39:25 <M-Saunders> gwil: Dunno. Find project, see website, see if asking for help, I guesss
May 20 16:39:47 <MayankSharma> oh yes hudzilla and degville and Andrew are making sure that I do :)
May 20 16:40:50 <felimwhiteley> ohhhh sweeet
May 20 16:40:53 <degville> how are things hudzilla? released many 'things' this week?
May 20 16:41:07 <felimwhiteley> just seen Chinook and 2x Blackhawks.. in prep for Obama coming on Monday

May 20 16:41:37 <hudzilla> degville: I'm certainly busy. I have more meetings nowadays. I have people who actually send meeting invites into my calendar rather than use email. It's a bit strange.
May 20 16:41:51 <jellyman> Anyway guys nice talking to you all, I hope we do this again :)
May 20 16:42:01 <EspadaV8> i think it's time i head off

May 20 16:42:09 <degville> jellyman: thanks! i definitely think we should do it again.
May 20 16:42:11 <M-Saunders> jellyman: Bye

May 20 16:42:17 <thameslink> Well I have to go, but before I do, I came here to say something. The work you have done has been an important part of re-igniting my interest in computers. Ultimately this has led to my decision to leave my job and go and study something I'm interested in rather than spend my life chasing a pay check, so I know it's your job and you're paid to do this and everything but you've all been instrumental in a substant
May 20 16:42:22 <M-Saunders> EspadaV8: Where are you?
May 20 16:42:36 <cchristiansen> what IRC clients have the LXF team been reviewing by the way?

May 20 16:42:40 <thameslink> ta bye bye

May 20 16:46:00 <M-Saunders> Really?!
May 20 16:46:05 <Darth_Tux2328> Yeah.
May 20 16:46:13 <M-Saunders> It looked mentally hard from the bit I played
May 20 16:46:17 <jemark> im a download fedora 15 beta now
May 20 16:46:20 <M-Saunders> How long is it? How many levels?
May 20 16:46:28 <Darth_Tux2328> 4 levels I believe
May 20 16:46:44 <Darth_Tux2328> (at least the version I found)
May 20 16:46:56 <Darth_Tux2328> The end is awesome, but really hard
May 20 16:47:17 <M-Saunders> I'm scared I'll have nightmares, after playing it again
May 20 16:47:27 <Darth_Tux2328> you have to get a robot to throw a mushroom at the evil cat
May 20 16:47:38 <Darth_Tux2328> withought letting the cat cut the bridge
May 20 16:47:54 <Darth_Tux2328> or being squished by the ceiling falling on you
May 20 16:48:26 <Darth_Tux2328> And at the end, instead of Princess Peach, there is a chicken-man

May 20 16:51:18 <Darth_Tux2328> M-Saunders: noooo!!!
May 20 16:51:27 <AndreasFrom> Mike has betrayed us
May 20 16:51:36 <hudzilla> Someone should /kick M-Saunders for that.
May 20 16:51:40 <Darth_Tux2328> nucc1: I really don't know
May 20 16:51:48 <nucc1> Darth_Tux2328, try Crafty
May 20 16:51:55 <Darth_Tux2328> nucc1: fairymax?
May 20 16:51:55 <AndreasFrom> and we thought only Canonical were paying you guys...
May 20 16:52:06 <nucc1> Darth_Tux2328, never heard of that one
May 20 16:52:13 <M-Saunders> AndreasFrom: Not enough, clearly ;-)
May 20 16:52:15 <Darth_Tux2328> hmmm
May 20 16:52:27 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: It's true; I haven't been so well off financially since I left LXF. I'm really missing the Canonical money :/
May 20 16:52:30 <AndreasFrom> M-Saunders: Good point
May 20 16:52:45 <Darth_Tux2328> nucc1: will see about crafty
May 20 16:52:55 <degville> We took a hit when they used our beer money to develop Unity.
May 20 16:52:56 <AndreasFrom> hudzilla: And the MS money as well? Or is that just Mike?
May 20 16:53:12 <Darth_Tux2328> nucc1: is there a Linux chess engine that has realistically beatable levels of play?
May 20 16:53:12 <hudzilla> degville: Fat lot of good it did them.

May 20 16:53:18 <AndreasFrom> Beer is worth more than Unity.
May 20 16:53:31 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: Microsoft has never paid me any money. Mostly because I filled out their tax form incorrectly.
May 20 16:53:38 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: That's the poorest joke you've said all day
May 20 16:53:39 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: That's actually true, by the way :)
May 20 16:53:46 <AndreasFrom> M-Saunders: You should make that company.
May 20 16:53:55 <M-Saunders> cchristiansen: And there was a lot of competition!
May 20 16:54:01 <Darth_Tux2328> where can one buy windows free computers?
May 20 16:54:06 <AndreasFrom> hudzilla: When did you have to pay Microsoft tax?

May 20 16:54:27 <bobthebob1234> build the computer from statch
May 20 16:54:34 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: Not pay *to* Microsoft; more that before they can pay me, they had to have the form back so they can pay the right amount to the IRS in the US.
May 20 16:54:36 <hydrantmark> M-Saunders: Mike-O-Soft? That reminds me of the episode of The Simpsons where Homer and Granpa take over a pub in Ireland

May 20 16:57:31 <Darth_Tux2328> The 'Linux Emporium' seems perfect, but I want to change the keyboard layout
May 20 16:57:34 <hudzilla> cchristiansen: That wouldn't really bother me. If you're getting taxed a lot, there are probably other folks that need it more :)
May 20 16:57:50 <bobthebob1234> Darth_Tux2328: Don't know where you are from but http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/enigmaIII-520/ seems to let you select no os. Never used them though
May 20 16:58:05 <bobthebob1234> or just get some keyboard stickers :D
May 20 16:58:25 <AndreasFrom> Once you understand the benefit of taxes, I don't think they hurt as much. if even still
May 20 16:58:39 <magda> AndreasForm - I know ,I would like something broader without having to buy a text book about SELinux.
May 20 16:58:45 <cchristiansen> hudzilla: I won't mind tax when I pay it, so long as the money's spent probably
May 20 16:58:53 <AndreasFrom> I'm making weird sentences today...
May 20 16:58:56 <Darth_Tux2328> the problem with keyboard stickers is that there's nowhere to put the accented keys

May 20 17:02:22 <hudzilla> Darth_Tux2328: In The Old Days, when you played games, the buttons on your keyboard did various stuff. For example, F6 might toggle the flaps on your plane whereas F8 might turn on the afterburner.
May 20 17:02:33 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: German and Danish aren't the same thing ;)

May 20 17:02:45 <M-Saunders> cchristiansen: Danish is just German pronounced badly :-)

May 20 17:03:08 <cchristiansen> AndreasFrom++
May 20 17:03:13 <M-Saunders> And with those 'o' things with lines through them
May 20 17:03:18 <AndreasFrom> Ø
May 20 17:03:33 <AndreasFrom> they're awesome. We've got Æ and Å aswell
May 20 17:03:33 <M-Saunders> Yeah, those things
May 20 17:03:42 <M-Saunders> What's the deal? How do you pronounce them?
May 20 17:03:42 <AndreasFrom> no umlauts though
May 20 17:03:50 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: To make that argument, you'd need to argue that German was a Denmarkic language or something ;)
May 20 17:03:55 <AndreasFrom> Æ is like AE
May 20 17:04:11 <cchristiansen> M-Saunders: I wouldn't try to pronounce Danish...
May 20 17:04:25 <AndreasFrom> Æ is like AE in "heart"
May 20 17:04:28 <cchristiansen> rød grød med flød, try that out ;)
May 20 17:04:30 <M-Saunders> OK
May 20 17:04:32 <M-Saunders> I'll try not to
May 20 17:04:40 <magda> Any good linux podcasts out there? like the linux action show .
May 20 17:04:42 <AndreasFrom> Ø is like "uhh"
May 20 17:05:01 <AndreasFrom> I've got no good explanation for å, that's just weird
May 20 17:05:02 <M-Saunders> Like ö in German?
May 20 17:05:09 <AndreasFrom> yeah of course!
May 20 17:05:16 <cchristiansen> ø = ö
May 20 17:05:18 <AndreasFrom> ø and ö
May 20 17:05:18 <M-Saunders> Gotcha
May 20 17:05:27 <hudzilla> IRC is so much more humorous when your IRC client ignores non-ASCII characters.
May 20 17:05:38 <hudzilla> AndreasFrom: So, are you saying then that ? and ? are both pronounced like ? in Danish?
May 20 17:05:41 <M-Saunders> hudzilla: What client are you using?

May 20 17:05:54 <M-Saunders> Ah, Irssi
May 20 17:05:57 <AndreasFrom> actually æ/Æ is like the first 'e' in "everything"
