@AbrahamVanHelpsing it still feels like cheating, even though I didn't ask you for the bounty... but I'll answer it if no one else does.
 
jrg
@AbrahamVanHelpsing haha... :)
has anyone tinkered with this? askubuntu.com/questions/140573/…
 
i have not...i imagine there is some good documentation on making custom apparmor profiles though
 
12:42 AM
Is considering moving to ArchLinux.
 
jrg
@Flabricorn if you are serious about interning with me, you need to use a real operating system, not a toy. ;P
 
@jrg :D
 
jrg
speaking of which, i should send you an email with more details about what I hope to accomplish.
 
Got it.
 
jrg
title.toastmanNumber@gmail.com is you, right?
 
12:44 AM
askubuntuusername@greendoorgames.com
 
jrg
that'd be why you hadn't replied to my latest email. :P
 
I don't care if these people have it, I doubt that I'm at risk.
Ah yes.
It would, however it should be forwarding to my new address.
 
jrg
ok, your card in my cyber rolodex is updated
 
Fantabulastic.

I feel like Ubuntu has no learning curve right now, which is something I want...
 
its more like it doesn't have to
 
12:48 AM
Good point.
I haven't found something I want to do with a learning curve in Ubuntu. I learned much more when I was on PPC and I had to fend for myself for everything, because community releases weren't the most polished and I had no support for applications.
Maybe I need a Rasberry Pi.
 
@Flabricorn yup, that'd do it alright.
they do have a stack (as you're aware) in case you blow your self up :P
 
I am aware in fact.
 
I know.
 
Oh do you now?
 
jrg
@Flabricorn then don't do arch
do pure debian
arch = a pain in the rear, even for me.
 
12:54 AM
Arch is that much of a curve?
 
jrg
debian = a slightly enjoyable pain in the rear.
 
someone tried to easy-button arch as archbang

Q: Can someone give me a walktthrough in testdisk?

bob tahogI would really appreciate it if someone could give me a walkthrough in testdisk.I wouldn't ask for this, but i caused this problem by trying to fix things myself using testdisk so now I'm nervous to try anything. I was messing with it trying to fix another problem and now I only have 1 partition...

is that off-topic? it seems to be more than one question...
 
jrg
i'd be willing to try out archbang.
 
the lfs guys did a "adding a package manager to lfs" too if you're up for insanity learning curve
 
jrg
12:56 AM
look, @Flabricorn is slightly sane.
 
oh, that's right. nevermind that last bit then ;)
 
I have a little left I would like to hold on to.
 
jrg
ok, let me rephrase this: @Flabricorn, try ubuntu-server > desktop first.
 
i like my ubu-alt openbox setup
 
But... graphical user interfaces are nice too.
 
jrg
12:58 AM
something like that.
 
the terminal is a user interface
 
jrg
use ncurse-based programs.
 
That's how real men do it according to Linus Torvalds.
 
and misterx...notice there is only ncurses gui for aircrack on linux
 
jrg
i must not have aircrack-compatible hardware, i wasn't able to get it to work.
 
1:00 AM
? what card ? the one i dumped in ppa worked for intel and atheros
 
jrg
intel and realtek.
i should grab from your ppa then.
 
disable hardware crypto in modprobe
it works for intel, but channel locking can be a little finicky
 
Aircrack for me has no real world application as of yet.
 
jrg
well, that will change this summer if things work out.
(and yes,it will be a legal use)
 
Got it.
 
jrg
1:12 AM
downloading archbang now, thanks for the tip @AbrahamVanHelpsing.
 
You know what, let me know if you like it, it could be the official OS of Rainy Cat IT (Was that the name you came up with?)
 
jrg
i renamed to something a little more suitable to our latitude and the generic mission.
(which (the mission) is "Technology stuff")
 
I love it!
 
jrg
so once i pick up the december check, i'll have enough to file the papers and that will be it.
 
File papers?
What's going on here?
 
jrg
1:16 AM
i'm going to eliminate a ton of paperwork for underage IT workers in cleveland.
basically, i'll make it so once a year, my army of minions file their paperwork and minor wage permits with my company, and then we can go forth and make money.
(and be "we", i mean myself and @Flabricorn. mostly myself. no clue how much time he has for stuff. :P)
 
I would like to be paid in Brazilian Chimpanzees please.
 
jrg
precisely. uh, no.
 
Ah there are some more out there. We can find minions if need be.
 
jrg
minions!
 
I want a turtle.
 
1:19 AM
Join our cause.
 
jrg
@GeorgeEdison basically, the current workflow for a project I'm interested in getting paid for is: Get asked to do the work, ask when they need work done, find out they need it done in the next 2 weeks, and then have to say no because I'd need to file a minor work permit with the school board for 10 hours of work.
 
^--- Like that one.
 
OH GOOD LORD WHY IS IT SO CUTE?!
 
jrg
don't let @RolandiXor-TheIceMan see that.
 
Wait until you watch it :)
 
jrg
1:20 AM
he'll melt.
 
@jrg Why not? I got it from him.
 
jrg
@Flabricorn this one is better, it's got epic music
 
It's not the music! That's not what makes it awesome :P
 
The house in New York I am staying in has a turtle in a tank that likes to bask in sunlight and have panic attacks every time it goes back into the water.
 
jrg
lol.
 
1:23 AM
Nice little guy, name's Tortilla.
Arch Bang looks pretty cool. Wouldn't mind that.
 
@jrg no problem
archbang looked interesting, but i'm more of a "fix things on one distro altogether" type of guy
 
jrg
is ubuntu one note sync broken in tomboy for anyone else?
 
i don't use it...so no idea
 
o/ FEichinger. on the thing we talked about earlier, i decided to do a single keyboard poll and world maintenance inside one python file and have it poll every three game ticks (so at 60 fps that's 20 times per second)
 
jrg
1:37 AM
i wonder if i broke ubuntu one note sync.
 
yes @jrg - it's your fault. you're the only one on the wheel of blame now. we're taking satyha off ;)
 
jrg
no, i'm serious. i've added in 20-30 notes this weekend, and all of them are really, really really long.
 
@AbrahamVanHelpsing Neat.
 
jrg
ah, that was it.
tomboy's .net thingy doesn't like ampersands in note titles.
 
soap requests on salesforce bork on ampersands too fyi
 
1:43 AM
That's why you either code a fallback for special characters, or at least give a friggin error ...
 
salesforce does throw an indiscriminate error, but it doesn't realize it's in parsing. it thinks it's an insert into other field a non-number into number exception. it doesn't even check right number of fields
 
jrg
[ERROR 20:39:48.926] Synchronization failed with the following exception: a name did not start with a legal character 32 ( ) Line 4, position 74.
at Mono.Xml2.XmlTextReader.ReadName (System.String& prefix, System.String& localName) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
at Mono.Xml2.XmlTextReader.ReadName () [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

at Mono.Xml2.XmlTextReader.ReadReference (Boolean ignoreEntityReferences) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0
so it does that. it's stupid though, it should escape those.
 
If it has a defined legal character set, why doesn't it do something as stupid as replacing a non-legal one with a dash or something? ...
 
maintain code you didn't write...just saying
 
jrg
how do i figure out my bugzilla username?
 
1:49 AM
Take two mirrors.
Align yourself in-between.
Read the number on your neck.
 
jrg
lol
 
you mean you don't have one of these? heh
it's really an rfid tag they implant up your nasal passage total recall style
 
@AbrahamVanHelpsing See, if it wasn't about @jrg, I'd joke about reading the RFID tag in the wrist ... But that sounds a little too close to reality.
 
har har...was that a young buck joke? it might have been
 
jrg
nope, my rfid tag is in my pocket. it's called "the cell phone".
 
1:55 AM
we know, we know
 
jrg
</end-dangerous-political-topics>
 
that's why open hardware never gets funding. the off switch actually works if you build it yourself ;) and /thought
 
</ " ">
 
jrg
@AbrahamVanHelpsing true that. :P
 
Look, guys, it's the 24th in some parts already. Let's all just put our cute little conspiracies in a chest and leave them there for the rest of the year.
 
1:58 AM
okay end conspiracy and topical linux message:

jrg
hey, my cute little conspiracies managed to stay in a chest all weekend around the extended family members who think i'm a insane maniac for reading the newspaper before i'm 30, so I'll rant if it's appropriate. :P
 
appears
 
@AmithKK o/
 
I just had the weirdest dream.
I was sleeping in my dream and this happened and that happened
sleepception
 
... You know ... the whole "-ception" thing doesn't work, when you're cepting the ception.
 
2:00 AM
it's a conversation within a conversation within a conversation
 
Obligatory Turducken:
Turducken is a dish consisting of a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which is in turn stuffed into a de-boned turkey. The word turducken is a portmanteau of turkey, duck, and chicken. The dish is a form of engastration, which is a recipe method in which one animal is stuffed inside the gastric passage of another. The thoracic cavity of the chicken/game hen and the rest of the gaps are stuffed, sometimes with a highly seasoned breadcrumb mixture or sausage meat, although some versions have a different stuffing for each bird. The result is a fairly solid layered poultry dish...
 
NO BACON???

You sir win one Internet.
 
Wish me luck
 
2:03 AM
I think that's half an internet.
 
@AmithKK What are you doing?
 
When I come back, I'll probably log on from amith-desktop-2
 
@Flabricorn That's 1*(1*(1*(1))) Internets.
 
Rebuilding my pc with a new motherboard and stuff
 
@AmithKK Okay, good luck then.
 
2:03 AM
@GeorgeEdison Thanks
 
That sounds like a difficult task.
Hope it all works out - don't forget to use thermal paste.
 
Not really
the CPU comes preassembled with the board
 
Oh, okay.
 
it's a core 2 duo
 
Not bad. I have one of those.
No wait - mine is a Centrino Duo.
 
2:04 AM
And Nvidia Onboard Graphics
it was the Geforce 7xx series I guess
 
A wild @Mochan!
 
Hey @Mochan :)
 
@iSeth I have been active in the reviews because the chatroom is too dead to be active in
Yo @FEichinger and @AmithKK!
@FEichinger Mochan uses Chat! It's very efffective!
 
@Mochan Don't worry, my holidays are back ;)
 
@Mochan We aren't dead. We're just ... sleepy.
 
2:06 AM
@AmithKK Woo! Yay~
 
Arch Linux + KDE = Beauty.
 
@FEichinger Lies. You're all dead.
 
And I'll go to an internet void place tommorrow
 
@Mochan We're not dead, we just think we're piglets.
 
@Flabricorn WTF? .__________.
 
2:07 AM
I have 2GB of 3G left on my phone
 
I want to be a piglet too T_T
 
@Mochan Precisely.
 
sudo pigletify 'mochan'

@GeorgeEdison I see fried turtle.
 
What video?
The turtle?
No, that was me.
 
Oh, I'm a bit sleep deprived. Forgive me.
 
yeah, that was george
who called the assembly?
 
2:10 AM
Now that is creepy.
 
I didn't know pigs had incisors.
...or lips.
 
@AbrahamVanHelpsing That's creepy... ._.
I liked it when there were like 800 review tasks. Now there are 0.

Early morning GIMP skills

That was my first bacon.
 
2:12 AM
I should have applied a perspective transform
 
The bacon plush toy! (Helpful if you still have some last minute shopping to do.)

BACON BACON BACON!!!

We have used up our stars for the week by now.
 
@GeorgeEdison Noes, now it looks like I started this!
 
@FEichinger :P
 
@GeorgeEdison BackFire
 
superbly effective brakes
 
2:17 AM
I better stop.
This is getting out of control.
Making all of those snowmen would have been epic fun though.
 
reminds me of the calvin and hobbes yard of horrors
 
BBL
 
@jrg When do I use puts as opposed to prints?
 
jrg
2:33 AM
 
Nevermind, too tired for ruby learning tonight, did two sections just now so I'm going to sleep now. Goodnight everyone.
Oh, gots it.
 
jrg
puts automatically adds a carriage return to the end of the string.
you can also do this, but it's rather silly and lame.
 
I haven't been told to use echo yet, and it gets angry when I add unnecessary code.
 
jrg
echo is a unix command
they won't tell you to use echo.
 
Oh my mistake, well, that's good.
 
2:36 AM
get a pipe to stdout and write to it. that will be normal-ish joke
 
jrg
they won't let you use it either, since what happens is you can do rm -rf / and nutty stuff.
 
Something for tomorrow.
Goodnight everybody!
 
jrg
ok, stackexchange, I love you, but you really suck. GIVE ME THE MARKDOWN DIFFS BY DEFAULT FOR /REVIEW EDITS! grrr
 
Oh my God!
 
You called?
 
2:41 AM
Haha
Is this chatroom dead again? //cries
 
It was quite alive until you went "Oh my God!" out of the blue.
 
Wah ;__;
 
yeah, look at the recent stars...we were all talking about bacon and the holidays

I said "Oh my God!" because my laptop died. lolthatwasawkward
 
2:47 AM
Ssh
I may have kept it there if I knew how to strikethrough
@AbrahamVanHelpsing LOL XD
 
three - is strikethrough
 
<s>why no this work</s>
 
Because markdown hates tags.
 
;__;
hi
:O
 
Yeh, markdown is mean like that.
 
2:49 AM
UNNECESSARY BOLD AND STRIKETHROUGH !
 
;__; (;,;)
 
Where is Web 3.0 when you need it? ... You know, automatically omitting such nonsense? :P
 
web 3.0 is a cli browser with grep -v....you know how this stuff goes in cycles

@AbrahamVanHelpsing XD
Hi @JorgeCastro :)
The Anime & Manga is up in beta for those of you who wish to participate :3

I need to do packaging magic
@Mochan \o/
@Mochan The use of the spoiler tag is invietable
 
4:48 AM
@Mochan don't tell me its dead until you've raised your hand! you'll probably get a response :)
anyway, I'm off to bed
night all!
 
@iSeth Good Night :)
 
@AmithKK oh, BTW, why do you want my Google ID? Its mostly for family/close friend things
 
@iSeth ohkthen
That's just my online life contact list :P
 
ah, OK.
haha, look at this... lol
 
5:04 AM
@iSeth XD
 
@AbrahamVanHelpsing have his people talk to my people. You know the address :)
 
@AmithKK Hey.
 
Hello :P
 
I have stuff importing to LP from git.
you don't need nova. LP does them all
 
@jokerdino Yeah, reading the docs on my phon right now
 
5:14 AM
Oh on your phone.
 
Yeah
24/12/2012 08:57	Out for delivery	Shipment Outscan	TRINITY
It's pretty near now
 
That's today.
 
Yeah
I'm near Trinity Circle
 
Yay
 
Should I go with amith-desktop-2 or another name :P
 
5:16 AM
Amith Desktop 2 sounds good.
 
lol I forgot to backup ./home
it's 47GB
 
Ubuntu one?
 
nah, 1TB drive
 
I was wondering if you could recover any of it as a solution. I personally use a home FTP setup.
 
I didn't delete anything yet
 
5:21 AM
Oh!
I though this was an afterthought, my bad.
 
lol np
 
@AmithKK the code is being imported to LP now - code.launchpad.net/mechanig
so, when you have the time, help us write a setup.py and another bzr branch with just the debianizing.
after that, we can create a packaging recipe.
 
5:39 AM
Yeah :)
Sad song :(
@jokerdino Autoimports right?
 
yep
 
5:57 AM
Let me know if you need any help.
 
ok :)
 
Ah! No dead?
 
We are undead.
