Hello chat
 
@Kiwy hello neighbour
 
Neighbour ? Do you leave anywhere near Lyon, FRANCE @StephenKitt :D
 
12:27 PM
@Kiwy I do indeed
 
Hello Neighbour then I had no idea
 
1:19 PM
@StephenKitt How did you know he was your neighbor? Do you have super senses?
Or perhaps paranormal powers. Kind of the same thing, really.
 
@FaheemMitha his web site gives his address
 
@StephenKitt He has a web site?
So how are things in France these days?
Nobody storming the Bastille, hopefully.
 
@FaheemMitha see his profile...
@FaheemMitha it sometimes feels like it’s getting close to that
 
@StephenKitt I did. I must be going blind.
 
France is backing the US in wars again, hell must have frozen over
I'm pretty sure I saw a pig with wings this morning as well
 
1:23 PM
@Jesse_b Which wars are those?
 
Referring to the bombing of Syria, although we have basically been bombing Syria non stop for over 6 years now
So it's not exactly the start of anything except extremely increased tensions with russia
 
@Jesse_b I didn't know France was a part of that.
But I don't really follow US military activity closely. It's just depressing to read about.
 
@FaheemMitha Yeah the way I see it, if France wants something bombed it probably really deserves to get bombed
 
@Jesse_b Um, not following. I don't think anybody deserves to be bombed.
 
Hitler?
 
1:27 PM
Though, unfortunately, it happens. Quite a lot, when the US is involved.
@Jesse_b Germany was bombed, not Hitler.
Hitler was one person. Who was probably in some very secure place when bombs were falling.
 
I mostly agree though, people are only a product of their experiences. I don't like corporal punishment but I don't think there is a better known solution in many cases
 
Assuming they fell on him. I'm fuzzy on the timeline.
Also, people in the West tend to give undue attention to Hitler and his friends. Speaking from my perspective, as mass-murdering psychos go, he wasn't particularly unusual.
 
I guess it mostly all depends on how you feel about the trolley problem
 
Though the other mass-murdering psychos get much less attention because they mostly murdered brown or black people. Which is, of course, only right and proper.
Though perhaps not from the perspective of the people concerned.
Anyway, I ramble. Dinner time.
 
I totally agree, Hitler wasn't nearly as bad as stalin
But we fought "the big war" against him so he has become some glorified super villian to us
 
1:31 PM
Anyway, I don't really know what is going on with Syria. Though I'm sorry for the Syrian people, if they are having bombs dropped on them. I'm sure they have enough troubles already.
 
even though we barely participated in that war
The bombs were dropped on military airfields and installations
The people are being mass murdered by their own government
"government"
 
@Jesse_b It's one of those relatively rare cases when Britain and the US fought someone nastier than them. So of course, they make the most of it.
From an Indian perspective, it's hysterically funny to have the British positioning themselves as the Goog Guys.
 
@FaheemMitha Mostly Russia. Britian got annihilated, Russia won that war and the US came at the last minute to raise our flag
 
@Jesse_b 1944 wasn't quite the last minute. And it was mostly the US vs Japan, it's true. And Germany vs Russia. That's how it went down.
Anyway, dinner time. Later, folks.
 
@FaheemMitha Yeah we fought the pacific front on our own but we lost that battle as well
So we pulled out and dropped nukes
@FaheemMitha Enjoy
 
1:38 PM
Such a debate, @StephenKitt are you a stalker ? should I be worried about my safety :D
@FaheemMitha I had to star this one. So true..
I feel like this Linux subsytem for Windows will either kill us either make linux a simple shell inside windows...

Q: Installing Linux Scripts using Windows 10 Bash Shell

JakattackI'm new to Linux and I'm having trouble install this script (https://github.com/rolandoislas/drc-sim) using the Windows 10 Bash Shell. Every time I've tried to install the script, I run into this error: compilation terminated. CMakeFiles/drc_sim_c.dir/build.make:326: recipe for target 'CMak...

 
2:29 PM
@Kiwy Never say die.
 
@FaheemMitha ho didn"t know about this expression though I imagine the meaning of it.
 
If spam points you to links, does that mean the machine in question has been compromised. Or is a bot in other words?
@Kiwy Yes, I know. It's an expression.
 
@FaheemMitha Could mean several thing, most of the time means that a fake site as been setup to set you up. If a link to a file is present, then it's most likely a compromised host
 
@Kiwy There should be some way to tell the owners. Though I expect nobody bothers.
 
@FaheemMitha if the admin of the site is reasonnable I think best pratice is to have a abuse@domain.com where you could receive complains like this. But I think it's not done in most case.
 
2:38 PM
Actually, in theory whois should give one a contact email.
 
indeed
