EvilResistanceInHisName:  which items are you listing on CL?15:04
InHisName350Mhz PC  with real Pentium II15:05
JonathanDMy switches are available. If anyone still wants 100Mbit stuff.15:06
InHisNameLARGE CRT monitor 21"    No calls.15:06
EvilResistanceJonathanD:  how much are you selling a single switch for?  I've used the switches up i have lying around for my cluster of windows sandbox servers (MSDN does have some advantages)15:07
JonathanDEvilResistance: 1 beer.15:08
JonathanDEvilResistance: far as I'm concerned, you can have them.15:08
InHisNamewhot a deal EvilResistance15:08
JonathanDThey have to be used together or you have to find a management module for the second one.15:08
JonathanDThey connect via a SCSI cable, which I have.15:08
JonathanDand act as a single 48 port 100Mbit switch.15:09
EvilResistancethat'd actually be useful15:09
JonathanDI was using them for network traffic with a seperate small gigglebit switch for iscsi.15:09
EvilResistanceJonathanD:  how much do you want for em, or are you just freely giving them away (in which case, expect me to pay for shipping)15:11
JonathanDEvilResistance: They're yours if you want them. No charge.15:11
JonathanDI believe I got them from someone at plug for free myself.15:11
EvilResistancehow generous of you :P  and how lucky for you too.  i've got classes until 13:00 GMT-0500 but we can touch base via email regarding shipping costs, because I'd be more than happy to cover for them. (you can tell i'm interested in em :P)15:13

JonathanDwaltman: I know.15:15
JonathanDwaltman: thanks for coming the other night, btw.15:15
EvilResistanceJonathanD:  probly easier to ship.  harrisburg's the generally closest city, but as i'm out at Penn State Harrisburg Campus (out in middletown, pa), if you're just passing through, it'd be easier to ship em15:15
waltmanHere's the south jersey rodeo I was telling you about -- http://www.cowtownrodeo.com/15:15
JonathanDEvilResistance: ok.15:15
JonathanDEvilResistance: can't check them tonight, I'm going down to hive.15:16
InHisNameYou farm boys, did you ever watch a PBS program called "RedGreen"15:16
adom<-- grew up on a 177acre farm. never heard of RedGreen show.15:19

JonathanDEvilResistance: ok. Probably be tomorrow morning.15:52
MutantTurkeyI don't understand this problem, I need to think of a solution16:35
MutantTurkeyA page loads taking 2.2 seconds of preprocessing time. The function called takes 1 second. If I comment out the function, it drops by 1 second16:36
MutantTurkeyYET. when I time the function with microtime, it tells me that it is taking almost no time at all. tenths of a second.16:36
MutantTurkeyeither I am reading the microtimes wrong or echoing is taking a lot of time16:36
adomi need to print a bunch of small pieces of paper that say the same thing. imagine taking 2-3 lines of text and printing 10-20 pieces of paper on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper. like making an 8.5x11 paper into business cards.19:44
adomusing windows or ubuntu19:44
adomtrying to figure out how Microsoft Word could do it19:44
waltmanadom: maybe make a table and copy the same text into each cell?19:45
* waltman shrugs19:45
waltmanit's easy to do in LaTeX :)19:45
adomwaltman: 1. don't know LaTeX and don't plan on learning it. 2. don't want to copy paste, want something that i can change the text and reprint if necessary19:46
adomim sure its possible in Word, just need to figure it out19:46
waltmanThen it sounds like you might need to script it, which is beyond my meager Word skills.19:47
adom.vbs scripting just to make an 8.5x11 into business cards seems excessive19:49
waltmanmaybe you could find an open source address label app you could hack up to do what you want?19:49
adomthats possible maybe...19:49
waltmanGoogling for "open source business cards" returns a number of possibilities...19:50
waltmanYou realize, of course, that there are many companies that will print up business cards to order for a small fee?19:51
adomyeah but its not for business cards. im creating little password reset cards to give students when we reset their passwords to remember the temporary one.19:52
waltmanIn debian there's a package called signing-party, and in that there's "gpg-key2ps: generate PostScript file with fingerprint paper strips".19:56
waltmanIt prints up your gpg public keys in an n-by-2 table in postscript. Maybe you could change around that to print the reset cards.19:57
waltmanIt's just a perl script. It shouldn't be too hard to modify.19:58
adommeh. found the envelopes and labels feature in Word, that should do it.19:58
adomfor reference: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/17013019:58
waltmanI'm sure there are lots of folks in the ubuntu channel looking for references to Microsoft Word documentation :)20:01
adomalmost had it, but gave up for the day20:44
adomits one of those things i keep telling myself ill do but never get done20:44
adomi like verbally telling students the new temporary password because then theres no pieces of paper lying in the lab with the students temp password20:44
