inetprogood morning Kilos10:00
Kilosgood morning inetpro 10:00
inetproKilos: the number of attendants should not matter10:00
Kilosi hope so10:01
inetprowe just need to keep the ball rolling10:02
Kilosoh is that all10:03
inetproKilos: yep, and I think you are contributing in a good way10:03
Kilosdont they want to see growth10:03
inetprothe fruit will grow sooner or later10:03
Kilosi had a look at ptawug they near 200 members10:04
Kilosif not for the need to use googleearth to get pinpointed i would join them10:05
Kilosi see they even cover other side hartebeestpoort dam10:05
inetprowell I don't think you can compare ptawug with #ubuntu-za 10:07
inetprooh and I think we might even have much more than 200 ubuntu-za members on the mailing list10:08
Kilosno but they seem to be a similar kinda venture and help each other with repos and so via wireless10:08
inetproI think drubin knows the number 10:08
inetproKilos: hmm... not exactly the same10:09
inetprowe're just focussing on ubuntu, they are focussed on many things10:09
Kilosno i agree inetpro but if they are into ubuntu then there must be some clever geeks there as well10:10
Kilosand it seems to be a geeky thing to get pleasure out of helping others10:10
inetproKilos: obviously they have some clever dudes there and some of them are even members of ubuntu-za10:10
Kilosoh thats good to hear. do you know who?10:11
inetpronothing wrong with being a member of multiple groups10:11
Kilosbecause i would hate to have to go through the whole please explain why i cant just quickly download stuff10:12
Kilosif they were all ms oriented i wouldnt be interested at all10:12
inetproKilos: they don't provide internet services10:13
Kilosbut it seems a way to get around the bandwidth issues most of the time10:13
Kilosyes i saw that10:13
inetprogetting around it is still illegal10:14
Kilosbut if you can get repos etc over wireless that already will save lots10:14
Kilosis wireless illegal10:15
inetproKilos: nope not exactly, and yes some will probably share stuff like repos over the wires10:16
Kilosthats what i read there that the aim is. to limit the need for bandwidth10:17
inetproKilos: just join their irc channel and ask around10:19
Kiloslol. i tried that but i then get kicked off here because i dunno how to make xchat use 2 different servers10:20

Kiloslo Squirm 18:02
* Squirm grumbles18:03
SquirmI'm trying to find a way to unlock my 3g Modem I bought in the UK :/18:03
Kiloswassup lad18:03
Kilosoh hold on18:04
SquirmDC Unlocker doesn't seem to pick up my modem, yet it says it does18:04
Kilosi got the site on my external i think18:04
KilosSquirm, i got mine from this site18:07
Kilosmost likely without the last bit18:07
Kilosi got an arab modem18:08
* nlsthzn_work walks like an Eqyptian...18:09
Kilosand you know about modeswitch Squirm 18:09
Kilosusb-modeswitch in synaptic other wise pc sdoesnt see 3g modem18:10
Kilosi think it was usb-modeswitch18:10
SquirmI just need to figure out how to unlock it first18:10
Kilosthat link above18:11
Squirmyeah, but then how to actually do it18:11
Kilosi think i had to register before they helped but then it was within 2 hours18:11
Kilosthey give you a code18:11
Kilosoh my goodness18:12
Kilosthen i had to plug it into a windows pc and let it install 18:12
Kilosthen when you got a local sim in it will ask for the code those peeps will give you18:13
Kiloscalled a NCK code18:13
Kilosand maybe a NSCK code18:13
Kilosgood luck18:15
* Squirm breathes18:17
Squirmhere in town they wanted to charge me R150, thats almost 15 pounds18:17
inetprohmm... "then i had to plug it into a windows pc"? that is just sad18:18
Squirminetpro: it's sad they only make windows specific software18:18
Kilosyeah inetpro the 3g modems dont install to ubuntu as they do to windows 18:19
Kilosand it wont ask for an unlock code unless you are in its own program18:19
inetprosurely there must be a simple AT command to talk to it?18:19
Kilosthey lock them to the service provider18:19
Kiloslike our mtn and voda do18:20
Kilosdo like i did. installed xp on p3 just to unlock the modem18:20
Kilosthose gsm guys were very helpful18:22
Kilosthey even supply firmware for modems and flash goodies18:23
Kilosi didnt go that far just unlocked and it works kiff18:23
Squirmthat's all I want18:23
Kilosthey will give  you the unlock code18:24
Kiloswindows peeps can even get a program that will work the code out18:24
Squirmyeah, I tried DC Unlocker18:24
Squirmwhich should unlock it, doesnt need a code or anything18:25
Squirmbut idk, I think it's just my pc not liking my dongle18:25
Squirmthats actually what I think it is18:25
Kilosthose gsm guys know all about fones and 3g modems, that their game18:25
Kilosyou gotta install usb-modeswitch18:27
Kilosthen network manager works kiff18:27
Squirmof which I dont have either18:27
Kilosoh yes you not on ubuntu hey?18:28
Squirmwill have to figure something out that doesnt use gnome. I could just settle for wvdial18:28
Squirmim still with debian though18:28
Kilosi tried that but it didnt work for me18:28
SquirmI've had it working before18:29
Kilosbut anyway you will first need the unlock code put into the modem18:29
Kiloswe got ians working on kubuntu18:29
Kilosthose gsm guys will help you Squirm 18:30
Kilosonce it is unlocked it will work on any OS18:31

LangjanHi to all the young boffins, are you well? 19:28
nlsthzn_workHi Uncle Langjan 19:28
nlsthzn_workI am well and you?19:28
* nlsthzn_work isn't a boffin but still being polite :p19:29
LangjanGood to hear, I'm also doing fine thanks. Just being polite already makes you a boffin...19:30
nlsthzn_workHehe, OK :)19:31
LangjanMy screen goes upside-down when I select extra visual effects on my Ubuntu 10.10. Any suggestions about what to do? Tried to reset to upside down but it reverts before I can sort out the inverted buttons. 19:31
=== nlsthzn_work is now known as qazxswedc
=== qazxswedc is now known as nlsthzn_work
Langjannlsthzn, now I have to learn to type qazxswedc and I am not even getting nlsthzn right yet...hoekom maak julle dit so moeilik vir die oumense?19:43
nlsthzn_workLangjan: :) sorry was busy on another channel... but an easy way to do IRC is to type the first few letters than press tab ;)19:47
LangjanExcuse my ignorance - what is IRC?19:48
nlsthzn_workoh, we are currently chatting via IRC... Interet Relay Chat :)19:49
Langjannlsthzn, wow! Thanks 19:50
Langjannlsthzn, any ideas on the upside-down screen? 19:50
nlsthzn_workLangjan: upside down screen?19:52
Langjanyes, when I select extra visual effects, the screen goes upside down19:53
nlsthzn_workhaha... that is weird (and annoying I am sure)19:54
Langjanvery much so, I tried to get to the screen settings to see if selecting upside down mode will sort the problem, but perhaps that is not the right solution.19:55
nlsthzn_workTo be honest I am not sure and very far from a Linux machine right now...20:00
LangjanOK thanks, it's not serious.20:01
nlsthzn_workSokkies... that is an awesome name for IRC :D20:46
SokkiesHaha thanks. why do you say so? or are you being sarcastic20:47
nlsthzn_workNo... it is... might be because I haven't been in SA for a few years and miss a bit of afrikaans but I like it :)20:49
