<@dmd> two old people were arguing over whose car a car was
<@dmd> and one was demonstrating that their key worked
<@dmd> and the other was using the impeccable argument that "it looks like my car"
<@dmd> i was at a stop light so i had to leave
<@dmd> but i assume this was resolved either by the correct party getting in and driving away
<@dmd> or by thunderdome
<@dmd> i hope the latter

* tanuki_ wonders idly why HDSLRs don't pull rows from their sensors in a different order
<tanuki_>if we have a 10-line sensor, for instance, instead of pulling 1-2-3-4-5..., we could pull 1-5-10-3-7-2-9-4-8-6 or something
<tanuki_>it seems like that'd get rid of the worst part of rolling shutter: the diagonal wobble
<tanuki_>there'd still be some rolling shutter but it'd be distributed across the entire frame instead of being concentrated at the bottom
<dif>u should write up a technical white paper about this
<dif>instead of typing it on irc where it'll scroll of your audience's screen
<dif>i'll read it.  i promise.
<tanuki_>Consider this a very rudimentary form of peer review
<tanuki_>Talking about it on IRC allows for an instant "it won't work because [reason], dumbass"
<tanuki_>instead of the whole months-long writing of the paper and submission to a journal for official peer review...
<tanuki_>just to be told the same damn thing: "are you really that much of a dumbass?"
<cwage>are you really that much of a dumbass?
<tanuki_>Yes. Yes, I am.

<Mgsts> I'm actually reading the Browne Review
<@nukespoon> is it brown
<Mgsts> the introduction actually is
<Mgsts> brown background
<@Al> they probably thought they were being funny
<@nwagers> yeah, british often think they're funny
<@nwagers> we call it "British Humor" in the US

<yamar> note: you would have to throw a hotdog at 1800mph to cook it with air friction
<qazwsx> yamar: how did you arrive by that answer
<qazwsx> Ah shit, brain's at it again
<yamar> qazwsx, it was on r/askscience
<yamar> which is like a nirvana for me
<qazwsx> Gotta take into account drag coefficients, cooling due to convection
<yamar> they did
<qazwsx> Easiest and simplest way
<yamar> was a <massive> explanation with lots of math
<yamar> including multiplying the velocity by 2 or so to account for heat lost to the air etc
<qazwsx> And wrongest way would just be to work out the specific heat needed to raise temperature by x degrees then use 1/2mv^2,
<adpaolucci> sup
<qazwsx> And use that as a lower bound
<adpaolucci> ewww math
<qazwsx> Holy shit it's nearly 00:30
* adpaolucci shoots himself
<qazwsx> Need sleep
<qazwsx> Night y'all
-few mins later-
<qazwsx> Godamnit, yamar
<yamar> hmm?
<yamar> got you stuck on the hotdog problem did I?
<qazwsx> I'm thinking about how to do this with drag coefficients and differential equations
<qazwsx> differential
<qazwsx> right
<yamar> hahah
<qazwsx> I'm going to assume a spherical hot-dog
<qazwsx> so, meatball then
<brjannc> lmfao
<qazwsx> oh damn, I haven't thought about conduction yet
<brjannc> "assume a spherical horse"
<yamar> the meatball would flake apart well before reaching any suitable speed

<Knifa> guys i wanna take my tab of acid now
<p> get on top of a very tall building
<p> and take the LSD
<AforAnonymous> why are you trying to kill Knifa
<AforAnonymous> I do not approve of that.
<p> knifa is smart enough not to follow my advice
<p> Knifa
<p> are you smart enough to know not to take LSD on the top of a very tall building

<@xobs> i forgot my keyboard in Singapore.  The one i got here in Shenzhen iss a special kind of awful.  IIt seems to olke to repeat keys randomly.  Makese logging in and putting in passwords a bit of a challenge.
<@xobs> Actually one of the thinigs I'll have  to oworrk on that's kinid of challenginig is wwhat to do on fiirst boot
<@xobs> Moost distroos set upu pthiingns like username, passworrd, timemzone,, etc.. durinig seteup.  WWe'll havev to odo that on first boot.
<@xobs> ...this is a areally, rreally bad keybooard.

<Morwen> heh, i just got an email off my trek site from some guy in Waukesha hitting on me.  He even left me his cell phone number. hehe  Says he's got a car that goes warp speed. :giggle:
<raven> because nothing turns a woman on more than Trek references.
<Leth> The problem is he's probably one of those types that can't let go when it's over. Y'know, a real Klingon
* raven doesn't have to energy to op over that right now, but consider yourself glared at.
<CrazyClimber> meet up with him and wear a red shirt, tell him he's got 60 minutes to save your life

-Link posted about Humble Indie Bundle purchases-
<Ethan> I find that kind of odd
<StabbySpazzOut> why ?
<Ethan> linux users pay more than mac users
<StabbySpazzOut> mac users have no money left
<StabbySpazzOut> they spent it all on their computer

<@CaptainJistuce> See, this opens up a world of possibilities here. Oscar may be a bipolar hoarder instead of just the grouch that lives in a trashcan because that's where grouches live.
<@CaptainJistuce> Cookie Monster? SERIOUS eating disorder.

<MoikeLap> the E7450 was never designed with datacenter work in mind
<MoikeLap> apparently they can't withstand the rigors of being jammed under a 4U Sun server and used as a lever to line up rack-mount earholes

<phos1> I get permisson denied now if i try to run drush status, so what owner / group should that have?
<graper> probably need 755

<charginghawk> why chmod if you can't do it with emojis?

<@Rabbi> don't ever forget to live life
<@Rabbi> it could be over any moment
< Gobina> and hopefully it will be, soon
<@Rabbi> for instance right now I'm writing code for an emulated 16 year old game and drinking a bourbon, alone in my apartment
<@Rabbi> gotta remember to live

<dat_dam> Aren't you supposed to be at work?
<braddock> someone called in a bomb threat today. everyone in the office had to be cleared out so we got the day off.
<dat_dam> wtf
<braddock> we think we all know who did it, but we're not saying anything because now we all get a long weekend.

<cheapie>   My left rear tire decided it didn't want to be a tire any more.
<Sunberry>  Oh dear. What does it identify as now?
<cheapie>   Random rubber bits on the road, I think.
<Sunberry>  I hope you've decided to respect its choice and remove it from your car
