@studiohack well, I mean, I guess if you do a buy/service, it is "Payment For" which means 0 fee, if you do "gift/give" you have the option of paying the fee or not
ok... no problem! but, if something like that happens again, please let me know!
 
@WilliamHilsum ah... I'm wondering if I paid the fee for the $7 one... hmmm
looking at my transaction details
 
@studiohack From what you said, I am guessing that Paypal just auto deducted a huge percentage
 
Amount received:
$7.00 USD
Fee amount:
-$0.57 USD
Net amount:
$6.43 USD
that's what MY transaction details say, so in this transaction, I paid the fee. in today's, you paid it. weird @WilliamHilsum
 
damn paypal
 
that's why it shows as 0 in yours for the same, because I paid it and you weren't charged... that makes sense. again, no worries, I'm not worried about it... cheers @WilliamHilsum :)
 
8:02 PM
@studiohack The way paypal works is if you transfer money as a regular transfer, you pay the fee. If you transfer money as a store purchase, the store pays the fee.
You can select either one.
 
as I try to explain badly, I must have done service last time rather than selected gift - gift gives you an option of paying or let the other person do... service doesn't even mention it... I thought I was lucky enough to get off of it, but, I saw the same today after clicking next knowing I did the wrong click... so, I guessed what must have happened last time
 
@sidran32 huh, must be missing that option.
 
It's on the main page. You select transfer money, and they ask you waht it's for. You can select "purchase" or "regular transfer"
Or something to that effect.
 
ah, because @WilliamHilsum is paying me, so i don't having anything to do with it (as in choose)
ah, okay
 
Yes, so @WilliamHilsum makes that choice.
 
8:04 PM
I did it quick last time and left it to defaults...
 
Yup. I don't know what the eBay items means.
 
instead of
 
Must be different fees.
 
I usually do "gift" if I want to pay the fee, or "goods", if I'm buying something in a private sale, and they want to take the fee.
 
8:05 PM
... but I remembered after clicking next, so, the whole situation made sense! ... still, 5c or whatever this time is a bit different to 50c! 10x as much!
 
@soandos This illustrates my point earlier regarding security: arstechnica.com/apple/news/2009/03/…
Older article but it describes what I was meaning.
 
@WilliamHilsum :P
I'm off for lunch and Intro to Mac - cheers!
 
Enjoy
 
alright, ME3 demo download started! Pushed a new update to the suggested edits - will show comments & approval/rejection date. cc @simonsheehan
 
@sidran32 not the mac class haha.
 
8:12 PM
@studiohack Too bad. I'd probably enjoyt it (and breeze through it :P)
 
Off to sleep, see ya
 
@Sathya I'm still not sure if I want to do the demo or just wait and be surprised when it comes out.
I'm leaning towards the latter though.
 
demo's not linked to the main game, @sidran32 there aren't much (if any) spoilers.
at max you'll know the first half hour of the game
 
@Sathya Oh really? What's in it?
Actually, I have enough games to occupy me before ME3 comes out. So I'll probably wait. I already have the Collector's Edition pre-ordered anyway. :P
I still have to beat Final Fantasy IV-XI (except VII), and XIII-2. :P
And Chrono Trigger...
err, Chrono Cross. Beat Trigger last night :D
So ya, enough to do :P
I felt like I missed a lot with Final Fantasy, so I'm catching up. I have them all on PS1.
 
LOL
demo features one level of you defending reapers,
other level I forgot
and also Co-op MP
 
8:23 PM
Ah.
I'll wait :P
 
8:57 PM
@Sathya, where can I download the demo for PC?
(Of ME3)
 
9:08 PM
@soandos You have to download it via Origin.
 
Got it. just realized that
 
9:39 PM
CMD + Key quiz :P
(intro to mac haha)
 
Didn't Mac OS 9 have a command prompt? I seem to remember one of our old iMacs booting into it and me being helpless because I didn't know how to use it.
This is pre-NexStep...
 
There is a terminal app...
 
Hm
 
@soandos He's asking about OS 9
 
Ya.
I remember the iMac being stuck at something resembling the DOS prompt but it wasn't... full screen and everything.
 
9:45 PM
@sidran32 I think you'll be waiting for a while :P he went to sleep
 
@studiohack No, I meant I'll wait and just buy ME3 instead of getting the demo now. :P
 
@sidran32 Open Firmware maybe. No idea when that was introduced though.
 
@DanielBeck Ah, that may be what it was...
It was a PowerPC based Mac.
As there was no x86 Mac yet.
I just remember being intrigued by the idea of Mac having a command prompt, and wanting to know more, but the Internet was young then :P
And I didn't actually try looking
 
@sidran32 lol, been staring at it for the past hour :P
macs keep timing out my messages
 
@studiohack Yes, but this is before OSX, before Mac moved to NexStep. This is Mac OS 9. :P
We had OSX running on a couple machines, I think, but we didn't use it.
And it wasn't running on that one :P
 
9:50 PM
@sidran32 I'm on OSX now
 
Everyone is. :P
 
@sidran32 Early versions of OS X were pretty poor IMO.
 
@DanielBeck That's what I heard.
 
@studiohack How's the class?
 
@studiohack If you get a free Mac, can I have it? :P
 
9:52 PM
@DanielBeck pretty good, the professor is fun
@sidran32 WHERE would I get one? :P
 
It is unfortunate that my next laptop is likely a few years away, with how well this Thinkpad is built. :P
 
and no, I'm keeping it. in the name of expanding my knowledge
@sidran32 well since I fixed mine, I'm gonna make mine last :P
 
@studiohack Hehe, I know. Was joking. :P I do want to get a Mac eventually though.
To live alongside my PC, anyway.
Windows can be my "power" machine, and Mac can be my business machine.
 
@sidran32 Macs, maybe. maaaybe. but I doubt it. I'd sooner spring for an iPod touch than a iPhone or a Mac
 
I love the front page. Not even Garrett managed to do that AFAIK.
 
10:03 PM
What the hell...
He took meta into his own hands I think
4
Q: Difference between CD tags

RaystafarianThere are currently 239 questions tagged with cd and no distinction between Compact Disc and Change Directory. Additionally, there is no [chdir] tag. My thoughts are that there should be a chdir tag and all the non optical-media questions could be migrated to that tag. Forgive me if this isn't me...

 
What happened to the front page? who the hell is kinokijuf :P
 
I think he saw that meta post, and manually started to retag
 
I predicted this on Saturday. Multiple other users also voiced their concern. It was so obvious it's not even funny.
@BloodPhilia He's the user with the most pointless retag edits on Meta you could imagine. Now he has (had) editing privileges.
 
@DanielBeck Never heard of him before
Does a suspension set rep to 1?
 
@BloodPhilia Yes.
 
10:11 PM
Who knew
 
@BloodPhilia Not an everyday event, especially with users you're aware of.
 
@DanielBeck True :P
Hard to miss this bloke now though
 
Woah. That's a bit hasty....
 
I never use the "active" front page.
 
10:17 PM
@BloodPhilia The best one is here … meta.superuser.com/posts/4299/revisions
 
I always hit questions and get newest or start browsing the "unanswered"
 
Sigh
 
Oh well. We kinda saw that coming anyway.
 
@slhck Doesn't make it less an
 
Haha, give me a break
 
10:20 PM
@BloodPhilia That edit on MSU was so awesome.
You can't even make this up.
Adding the to a topic titled Get rid of the [annoyances] tag
 
@DanielBeck The annoyance one?
 
@BloodPhilia Revision 4 here.
 
@DanielBeck Yes that's the one I meant! :D
Quite annoying no?
 
Now I remember that there was a use of pr0blem once. On purpose.
 
Not for the next 9 or so days.
 
10:24 PM
@DanielBeck I see what you did thur
 
Oh well. This is enough action for today. I'll call it.
See you guys!
 
@slhck Byebye :D
 
@slhck Good night
And good night everyone else.
 
10:42 PM
Holy crap. My phone is only supposed to download the last week of messages from Hotmail, but now it seems it's downloading the entire inbox... I wonder if Microsoft fudged something up on their end with timestamp reporting...
My phone won't stop beeping!
sets to silent
 
11:28 PM
@sidran32: That's normally just a setting.
And if it would be on their end I guess I would experience the same issue, which I don't. Hopefully this is not something build-specific again? xD
 
@sidran32 IMAP? fun fun
quick question - if I use IMAP on my WP, can I have the entire inbox on there? or will it try and sync the entire inbox every time, thus running up my data plan?
 
11:50 PM
yay, i got SF rep
is nowhere near the magical tipping point where i level up tho ;p
