@Kusalananda I'd be interested in what the module command comes from. If you remember next time you're at work, and can look it up, please let me know.
I think the Ubuntu package is called environment-modules.
I'm not 100% sure this is exactly what we use, but it sure looks identical.
1:00 AM
@Kusalananda That's quite cool, actually!

@FaheemMitha conscious mind often suppresses some ideas and there is ongoing conflict between conscious and subconscious mind. Most of the times conscious mind wins but sometimes subconscious mind take the lead. Whenever subconscious mind wins, these ideas suppressed by conscious mind take control of conscious mind. Then conscious mind present them as jokes. Very often these ideas are prohibited by society.
@PrabhjotSingh I doubt that analysis covers many jokes.
@FaheemMitha You heard there are not potatoes either.
@PrabhjotSingh Pardon?
@FaheemMitha This covers most of jokes if you know instincts.
@PrabhjotSingh I don't think so.
@PrabhjotSingh I agree jokes can be subversive.
To quote Eric, "every joke is a tiny revolution". Or something like that.
@FaheemMitha True. It is a victory of instincts. Or we can say victory of suppressed ideas. but i like this phrase "every joke is a tiny revolution".
Is this place far from you? It's in North India.
I guess not very close.
Bihar is eastern india.
Hmm. Chandigarh is not far from the Pakistani border.
On the map, it looks like Lahore is fairly close to Chandigarh. You must get cold winters.
@PrabhjotSingh My geography is quite poor. Always has been.
11:50 AM
Yes cold winters and very hot summers.
@FaheemMitha Appx 270 Kms.
@PrabhjotSingh 270 Km from the Pakistani border?
That's the closest distance?
@FaheemMitha Yes. Yes closet distance but not displacement.
@PrabhjotSingh Not displacement?
@FaheemMitha Displacement in Physics.
@PrabhjotSingh I don't follow. You mean the shortest distance?
11:52 AM
@FaheemMitha yes.
@PrabhjotSingh I'm not sure if that's the correct term.
@FaheemMitha My grandparents were refugees from Gujranwala.
@PrabhjotSingh They came from what is now Pakistan? My uncle (father's brother) moved to Pakistan after the war.
So Pakistan has a Punjab too.
@FaheemMitha Yes.
I'm sure your people wish there could be one Punjab.
11:58 AM
@FaheemMitha That is bigger than ours. if you take punjabi speaking area punjab is far bigger than Punjab we see on map.
@PrabhjotSingh Which Punjab? India's or Pakistan's?
Or both?
@FaheemMitha Only academics talk of this thing. Otherwise I don't see people wish for a Single Punjab. But despite that our history, culture and language are one.
You heard about Nusrat?
@PrabhjotSingh I find that surprising.
@PrabhjotSingh No. What is that?
@FaheemMitha Pakistani Punjab is their biggest province and appx 70 percent of their tax collection comes from Punjab.
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (Urdu/Punjabi: نصرت فتح علی خان), born Anjum Pervaiz Ali Khan (13 October 1948 – 16 August 1997), was a Pakistani vocalist and musician, primarily a singer of Qawwali, a form of Sufi Islamic devotional music. Widely considered one of the greatest voices ever recorded, he possessed an extraordinary range of vocal abilities and could perform at a high level of intensity for several hours. Extending the 600-year old Qawwali tradition of his family, Khan is widely credited with introducing Qawwali music to international audiences. He is popularly known as "Shahenshah-e-Qawwali...
@PrabhjotSingh Oh. Really? That's surprising.
@PrabhjotSingh I don't know him.
12:04 PM
He is the most famous singer in both Punjabs.
@PrabhjotSingh I see.
@FaheemMitha who writes these things these days.
modern emphasis on what is called ‘clean fun’ is really the symptom of a general unwillingness to touch upon any serious or controversial subject.
@PrabhjotSingh Not sure what you are talking about.
Is some web application guru out there?

Q: What are the client and server parts of a web application?

Timhttps://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_application says a web application or web app is a client–server computer program which the client runs in a web browser. Is the client part of a web application an "application client"? (As to what/where is an application client, see What is the client o...

Q: What is the client of an application server when used with web server and web client?

@PrabhjotSingh Oh, you're quoting the Orwell article. But I'm still not sure what your question means.
Humour is the debunking of humanity, and nothing is funny except in relation to human beings. Animals, for instance, are only funny because they are caricatures of ourselves. A lump of stone could not of itself be funny; but it can become funny if it hits a human being in the eye, or if it is carved into human likeness.
It is what Freud said about jokes.@FaheemMitha
12:32 PM
@Fabby exactly and I keep getting safe driving lectures from every angle but come on any trauma is eventually bubble wrap for worse ones that occur after on a chronological basis I mean
12:50 PM
@PrabhjotSingh Ok. I don't agree with that, though. Humor is more general than that. And I'm still not sure what your earlier question was about.
@FaheemMitha earlier question?
50 mins ago, by Prabhjot Singh
@FaheemMitha who writes these things these days.
No question mark, but it looked like a question.
@FaheemMitha I meant He was more progressive than his time, acc to this article.However I haven't read him.
@PrabhjotSingh Eric, you mean? Yes, he was unusual in a number of ways.
Hi @Jesse_b. Slumming it on the weekend?
@FaheemMitha what up
1:01 PM
@FaheemMitha who is Eric?
I slum every day
@PrabhjotSingh Eric Arthur Blair. He wrote that essay.
Aloha @Jesse_b
You're not Hawaiian, @PrabhjotSingh
@PrabhjotSingh Hello!
1:02 PM
@FaheemMitha Yes.
(Hello means hello in swahili)
@Jesse_b Are you sure?
@FaheemMitha No but google translate told me
@Jesse_b Sounds unlikely. And Google Translate is not reliable.
in TeX, LaTeX and Friends, 20 hours ago, by Prabhjot Singh
@UlrikeFischer Google Translate would be useful after say 50 or 70 years later,imo.
@FaheemMitha I recall once you told me that Orwell is a river in fact.
Only Blair I have read about is Tony Blair.
1:16 PM
@PrabhjotSingh Yes, it's a river in Suffolk.
The River Orwell flows through the county of Suffolk in England. Its source river, above the tidal limit at Stoke Bridge, is known as the River Gipping. It broadens into an estuary at Ipswich where the Ipswich dock has operated since the 7th century and then flows into the North Sea at Felixstowe the UK's largest container port after joining with the River Stour at Shotley forming Harwich harbour. The large Orwell Bridge carries the A14 trunk road over the estuary to the south of Ipswich. == Name == In the name Orwell, Or- comes from an ancient river-name — probably pre-Celtic; but -well probably...
It's a fairly old name.
@FaheemMitha Thanks.
