mfraz74the website makes look like i've rescheduled the delivery09:51
directhexmfraz74, the depot staff helpfully rescheduled delivery on your behalf.09:55
* GirlyGirl is deciding whether to spend money repairing her car bodywork or buying herself a nice new laptop 09:55
mfraz74new laptop of course!09:56
MartijnVdSI'd go for the car09:57
GirlyGirlI think I'll take the laptop, since the car moves like it should (except for a bit of constant steering)09:58
MooDooGirlyGirl: what's going to be the cheaper option?  and is your life at stake in the car ;)09:59
GirlyGirlor maybe balancing for the car and a laptop09:59
directhexlaptops are SOO last millennium. tablets are where it's at!10:01
GirlyGirlMooDoo: both cost around the same.. no the car is safe, just dented, I smashed it pretty bad10:01
GirlyGirldirecthex: nah not so interested in a tablet10:02

Azelphurfor all the electronicy type people out there, would it be possible to make a magnetic USB charging cable?13:08
Azelphuryou know like the cables you get on laptops which are held in magnetically so if someone trips over the cable it just falls out13:08
aquariusnot really. usb requires more of a contact than that13:08
Azelphurthought it might do, but I wondered if the requirements would be lower for just power with no data13:09
directhexusb doesn't work that way.13:11
aquariusthen it's not usb :)13:11
aquariusthe whole point is that usb is universal; you can plug any usb device into it. If this magic socket requires shorter plugs or something then it ain't usb ;)13:12
Azelphurspose :p13:12
aquariuswhat you could do is make a very short usb-to-azelphursb connector, and then put an azelphursb socket on your laptop13:12
directhexlook inside a usb plug. power happens on the 2 long lines - ground on the left, +5v on the right13:13
aquariusalso, liisten to directhex, since he has the skillz13:14
Azelphursounds like it would be easier to bypass the usb charging and just go straight to the battery13:18

AlanBellhuge range, from £20 to £x00019:36
AlanBellwhere are you coming from?19:37

AlanBellbecause the UK allocation was done in a lottery, other country allocations might have some left19:38
popeyiirc GirlyGirl is in Scotland19:40

HazRPGis there a BIOS thing I should be changing that could be locking it out?22:19
HazRPGaccording to this, it should be okay (however that does mention 8.04 though, not 11.04): http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/dg35ec/sb/CS-029515.htm22:22
