Please remember to get your collector's pin on the way out.
 
and bacon
 
Wat.
 
4:03 AM
@Zacharee1 the ports aren't big enough for me to have sex with an iPhone.
 
@edwinksl your ReasearchGate one would work well
 
If you ping @bacon, NathanOsman gets a notification.
 
And vice versa.
 
@TheXed oh I could make a very crude burn here
 
@Zacharee1 i can't recall what i have on RG. time to check
 
4:04 AM
If you ping me, @bacon gets notified as well.
 
@edwinksl I can paste here
 
@NathanOsman hello @Bacon
 
@Zacharee1 that would be doxxing though
 
4:04 AM
what's the tag meta code thingy again?... i forgot

a magical experience
@edwinksl :p
@edwinksl link
 
4:10 AM
discord DM
 
Can I cheat with: ++
 
@KazWolfe We'll find out shortly...
 
friendly reminder that Zacharee can't set up a discord to save his life.
 
@KazWolfe u aint gettin admin
 
@Zacharee1 i already have it.
 
4:11 AM
I sense a little in this room
 
@KazWolfe nope
 
@Zacharee1 really?
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix
 
permission to change name?
 
@KazWolfe nope
 
4:12 AM
Permission granted.
 
there >:D
 
@NathanOsman BHWA BHWA BHWABHWBHWHWHBAHBWAH
@KazWolfe nope
@WinEunuuchs2Unix
 
@Zacharee1 sorry, i'm still god.
 
You wish
 
4:14 AM
The starwall has taken on a new look.
And I approve.
 
At the CIA?
@NathanOsman which starwall?
starwall= CIA KIF right?
(KIF = Killed in Field)
 
ROFL DAT KICK
 
LOLOLOLOLOL
 
What the heck. There's faint talking coming from my speakers.
 
4:18 AM
@KazWolfe u hev link
 
i hope to god zach's volume was up for that.
@Zacharee1 nu i don
 
@KazWolfe I was out of the convo so no tts
 
damnit.
 
@KazWolfe is in direct massge
 
What is going on?
 
4:18 AM
@KazWolfe but now we're playing with it
@NathanOsman /tts in discord
 
zach can't permission.
so i abuse it.
 
@Zacharee1 How does that work?
 
@NathanOsman uses your OS's speech synth
 
doesn't it just read text off the screen
 
do /tts <message>
 
4:21 AM
bash: /tts: No such file or directory
 
I realized today that non-alcoholic beer is also forbidden for underage kids
 
Whoaaa.... Toshiba stock dropped 17% today after I said I'll never buy them again because they went Windows only to give the finger to Linux... they however claim the fall was over Nuclear earnings in USA but we all know that 's a lie :p
 
and I just dropped that random fact for no apparent reason
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix in Discord.
 
@IanC Why on earth would you want to force-feed kids non-alcoholic beer in the first place?
That's like a gate-way drug.
@NathanOsman I thought "Discord" was like an argument you guys were having... didn't realize it was an app / program / platform.... LOL
 
4:25 AM
@Zacharee1 hue
 
hue
 
I think that's probably their argument, but then those chocolate cigarettes should also be forbidden (are they nowadays?) @WinEunuuchs2Unix
 
That smile is scary.
 
lmao farage
 
4:26 AM
btw, I don't want kids to drink non-alcoholic beer, I was just drinking it and realized it had something about age requirement to drink
 
Such hue. So hue. Very hue.
 
7-1!
 
BRA71L
 
@IanC I wasn't picking on you... just floating the thought to the clouds.
 
What is this? Soccer football?
 
4:27 AM
banana commercial.
 
I originally sat down to get some work done. 20 memes later... where did the time go.
 
100 more memes to go
 
Oh cool. New hat.
♪ Silver badge ♪
♪ Silver badge ♪
♪ It's Winter Bash... on Ask Ubuntu ♪
(You may need to cram a couple syllables together to make that work.)
 
Geez a man of your rep shouldn't be concerned about measly silver badges :D
 
But HATS.
 
4:31 AM
...me on the other hand :D
 
HATSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSs
HATS HATS HATS HATS HATS
 
who has the most hats in this room?... is there an app for that?
 
hi
 
There should be.
 
4:32 AM
I'm #52.
 
meanwhile I'm only 4 votes away from a gold badge
 
Tim
Kaz Wolfe has the most
 
but on a question that isn't really any use anymore :(
 
24 FREAKIN' HATS.
 
4:33 AM
I got 4 gold badges like a month before winter bash... just like every year -.-
 
Alright, hats off to @KazWolfe (no pun intended).

@NathanOsman well provided i stalk all the hat rooms.
and discovered the 100% way to get the 8 million hat :D
 
@Zacharee1 "A poem by Zacharee" ?
 
4:33 AM
mebeh
 
Tis true #KazLedMeToTheHatRoom
 
Tim
Also fun fact: nobody will have 11 hats.
ever
 
Challenge:accepted
 
I think I had that between 10 and 12
 
I understand what @Tim is saying.
 
As soon as you get 11 hats, you will have 12 :P
Upgoated.
 
So you are saying my 12th hat is a fake and I should give it back or donate it to charity out of guilt?... here #KazHaveMyTwelfthHat
 
Tim
Yeah your 12th is just because you briefly had 11
also: yay...:
 
So I can search AU Q&A for "HDMI Sound" but how can I search my own Q&A for that?
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix user:307523 hdmi sound
 
4:45 AM
AU just 503'd for a second.
it's back now.
 
@Seth TY... got to vote close question to one of my historical answers without having to page down for five minutes!
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix what hat is this for?
 
@Seth none iirc
 
good.
 
definitely no secret hat.
 
4:50 AM
@Seth Sorry not sure what hat you are referring to???
If you mean the Question: askubuntu.com/questions/865653/…
 
so close to a hat...

(hint hint <3)
you are all awesome and i love (most) of you.
 
+1 but I better not loose 15K rep like Serge and Xed
 
i don't think anyone will.
as long as your votes are diverse.
plus i'd be the one losing a lot of rep.
 
Thanks for heads-up on collusion :p
Well it's not like they can take 15K away from a 5K man anyway :)
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix fffs you won't
 
4:56 AM
Good thing there aren't mods in this room @Seth ;)
j/k I know a bit...
I wonder if I can take Turkey stuffing leftovers and fry them like a pancake and then spread left over cranberry jelly over it like a jam.
 
we need more suggested edits.
 
Slightly improved my code, although I still need to work on dealing with pipes. Apparently you cannot use seek() function on pipes, only on files
 
Is this for tails?.... just go to EOF and read backwards.
 
That's exactly what my tail implementation is doing - it reads the file backwards with the seek() function, but like I said - I can't do it with pipes. And if I read everything from the top, line by line, it's going to take hell long of a time
Last time I tried to cat 29 million lines of text, took about 40 minutes or something
 
@Serg that's weird, I'd think all the functions for working with files would work with stdin
 
5:06 AM
@IanC that's the trick - a pipe isn't a file. It's a buffer
 
yeah, but files are treated as buffers when you handle them, so I thought there would be a seek equivalent for it too
 
Well, it's not a big deal. I'll probably end up having two functions - one for dealing with files, and one for dealing with pipes
 
I've written a bit more to my .vimrc for C files, if you want to take a look and maybe use it too, it doesn't have much so far but there are some small shortcuts you might find useful @Serg
 
@Serg You could always cheat... extract the tail C code and translate it into Python.
 
@WinEunuuchs2Unix hehe, I actually have that. I have source code for all GNU utils. But I only reference it when I feel like I've no idea what I'm doing. It's more fun trying to figure it out on my own though
@IanC Sure, I'd be glad to take a look, although I don't code in C that much lately
 
5:12 AM
assuming this is an adult room... when search for a piece of tail why reinvent the wheel?
 
But I swear, coding in general, be it C or Python, keeps me sane. I was absolutely down a few hours ago, and after working on my tail script I feel so much better
 
maybe you can figure something similar for python, I don't code on it so it's a bit harder to figure out some useful shortcuts for it
 
I see you added mappings for parenthesis and square and curly brackets. That's one of the things I always wanted to add and never got around to it. Awesome @IanC
 
@Serg yeah! I was first using a single {, ( or [, but then it would break the g key map, so I mapped it to a quick {{, (( or [[ :)
maybe for Python you will have to change a bit the curly brackets map, because now it makes the C code block, I think you're going to use it for lists?
 
Well, curly brackets will go for dictionaries. What I think would be really useful is mapping for inserting "def " phrase
I think I'll need to learn a bit more about pipes in order to work on my tail script
This is getting eggs-citing
 
5:22 AM
@Serg BAWK
 
@Serg you could add map! dd def at the end maybe, or some other key you don't use
though I think typing dd isn't much faster than typing def :/
 
@KazWolfe That's totally going to me my name of custom awk implementation , lol. Or DAWK, derp awk
 
@Serg If you publish it, the package should be chicken
which provides bawk
 
Package chicken, includes utils such as chicken-tail, chicken-head, bawk, and chicken-nuggets ( for no reason at all )
 
be sure to include beak
 
5:32 AM
Yes, it'll be good alternative to finger
 
eyes are getting heavy, going to take a nap here
good night guys!
 
good night, Ian
Maybe it's too simple of a statement, but . . . it seems that being able to write a few lines of code and take the mind off some of depressing thoughts is sort of happiness
 
5:49 AM
@Zanna !!!!
 
wooo, good answer silver badge
 
step 1 to becoming a mod: Set your homepage to askubuntu.com/review
 
6:31 AM
@KazWolfe cough who, me?
Btw it's NOT me delete-voting the dupes of Ubuntu touch hardware question and I don't think that's a good idea really. But ? Burn it down...
@WinEunuuchs2Unix lol :D
@terdon you pinged?
 
i will never understand MSE.
And why they hate feature requests so much.
 
6:51 AM
hey, i just became cool enough to use this chat. :)
 
@DavidLitton Welcome!
It's a bit quiet right now (most users are asleep/at work/having lives), but welcome nonetheless!
 
@DavidLitton congrats !
 
I am trying to do something most folks don't generally do. i wanna dual boot ubuntu standard and then ubuntu studio. this machine has an efi partition that I must say I do not understand at all.
 
and you were able to pop in here for a year ^-^
 
Oh, well, I guess I just checked my notifications.
 
6:53 AM
As for Ubuntu Studio/whatever, as long as you have a separate partition for Ubuntu Studio set up, GRUB will typically take care of things.
so for the most part it should just be a standard install, provided you have the partition ready.
The two Ubuntus can share swapspace without much issue.
though, if you don't mind my asking, why do you need Studio and regular Ubuntu? Why not just install the needed apps on the one version you have?
 
Well, I throw KXStudio on top of ubuntu studio so I can use cadence and carla to manage jack. It ends up being a little more customized than I want my daily work partition being.
 
ah, makes sense. But yeah, two Ubuntu installs can coexist relatively peacefully, so you shouldn't have that many issuses.
GRUB should automatically detect the other OS and take care of things for you. Unless you have a weird EFI config, you shouldn't have to touch that, either.
 
I've done this before, it's just that I have no effin clue how efi works and after installing studio, i get no grub menu and it just goes into my gnome install
This machine is dope though.
 
hm. You might need to hold down SHIFT during boot to get the GRUB menu to show up.
 
brb. let me give that a go
nope, that didn't do it.
 
7:04 AM
that was fast.
 
The ssd in this thing is kind of boss
 
What's the output of cat /etc/default/grub | head -n 15?
 
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
 
is there a magenta screen during boot?
 
Well I have ubuntu gnome running so the screen is blue-ish
 
7:07 AM
huh. Add a # before the GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 line.
Then, run sudo update-grub, and reboot.
(you will need root to edit the file, so sudo nano or gksu gedit or whatever your preferred root text editor is)
 
I have never manually updated grub before. I'm skurred
heh
 
basically you're just disabling the hidden parameters.
(or just the timeout one, the quiet parameter won't do anything without the first)
 
I feel funny asking this, but where do I find the grub file that I need to edit? I have been using linux for ages and I have never had to go in and edit grub
 
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
also, you're lucky :D
at least you're not editing Xorg.conf
 
I did it in gedit and saved it
I will update grub in the terminal and reboot the computer
 
7:12 AM
keep us posted. as log as update-grub shows no errors, you'll be able to come back up no problem.
 
Nice
No problem
Thanks.
 
(When you get back, i can give you a quick "tour" of EFI and things. It's an amazing tech but nobody understands it, really. Which is annoying.)
 
I am back
 
You got a bootmenu?
 
it works
 
7:14 AM
Awesome! :D
Was Ubuntu Studio detected?
 
yes. nvmeblahblabhalbha07
 
??
 
it's drive 7. not sure why there's so many partitions, but whatever.
 
that's... interesting.
It's probably not a big deal, but what's the output of sudo lsblk?
 
I will look at gparted when I get around to it.
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
mmcblk0 179:0 0 15G 0 disk

7:17 AM
Eh, that looks ok/normal.
Linux likes naming drives in a weird fashion at times, but that looks just fine to me.
 
Why is the efi partition so big? It's like 10% of my drive.
 
Wow...
That's impressive, lol.
Um, you did manual partitioning or was that automatic when you first put Ubuntu on?
 
I put ubuntu gnome on using the regular installer on a fresh ssd.
 
hm. it's strange that it would make a 50 gb EFI partition.
 
I don't understand EFI at all, so I figured whatever it did must be right.
it's not a huge deal. I wipe out my carry around once every 6 to 9 months any way. I will figure out what that's all about between now and then
 
7:21 AM
Your standard EFI partition is ~100 MB.
If you're crazy or do a lot of weird things, you might have one a bit larger, but anything over 4GB is just weird.
This is why manual partitioning is king.
 
the desktop and the laptop that this thing is replacing combined had less storage than I have in this thing, so losing 50 gigs isn't gonna bother me. I am so used to dumping my audio and video projects to my nas as soon as I am done working on them, this isn't a problem.
 
If it becomes an issue and you want to reclaim that space, you can just shrink the EFI partition without any worry. Move the Ubuntu partition to the left, and expand it a bit. Should work fine.
 
My entire SSD is 32gb
 
Or you can add in a 45GB partition for shared file storage or similar, if you want. You can really do a lot with that space.
(Actually if you want to try something fun, you can symlink your user directories between the two OSes together and keep your ~/Music, ~/Documents, and the like in sync.)
 
Yeah, it's not a big deal. I've been on SSDs since 120 was expensive so I can survive on 450gb combined for now
 
7:25 AM
As for (U)EFI, it's really just a replacement to the boot sector, with the difference being that EFI boots from files directly.
 
I thought about that, but I just wanna get back to work on my projects honestly, Plus if I really need to get files on one from the other, I can just launch the file manager as root
 
So instead of messing with a boot sector, EFI boot instructions are essentially stored in files, within your EFI partition (mounted at /boot/efi).
 
gotta switch trains.
 
Actually, if you have the same UID (if you're the only user, this'll be the case), you won't even need root.
You'll already have permissions on the other drive.
All you need to deal with is the mounting, but you can add an entry to /etc/fstab to do that.
 
7:54 AM
what happened to the starwall? hahaha
 
@Zanna Seth started something, and then everyone else sort of went down that route.
 
@Zacharee1 I found your favorite SO user ^
 
quite tempted to read the transcript
 
@Serg i thought you fell asleep?
 
@KazWolfe I'm sort of lurking, sort of watching youtube, sort of contemplating life and universe
 
7:59 AM
@Serg 42.
 
Ah, right . . . I keep forgetting it. I need to write a python script that will remind me about the answer to everything in the universe
