bigcalmLooking for an SD card for my RPi - will one from Tesco do or should I look deeper into possibilities?10:30
brobostigonbigcalm: i think, it has to be sdhc, and i would go for as higher class card as possible, to get as higher speeds as possible.10:32
bigcalmbrobostigon: has this been proved? I hear tales of some higher classes not providing the same through put as some lower class ones10:33
brobostigonbigcalm: no idea, i am theorising,10:34
mungojerrysorry i pressed my green button while irc was focused10:43

mungojerrycan i disable areas of RAM for a laptop with soldered on memory?12:59
mungojerrymemtest is puking at 129MB12:59
lubotu3Ubuntu bug 1071209 in memtest86+ (Ubuntu Quantal) "memtest86+ test #7 false positives (random number sequence error)" [Medium,In progress]13:03
shaunoI'd take a look at that first.  129 may not be a coincidence13:03
mungojerrythanks man :D13:04
mungojerrymay have saved some effort13:04
mungojerryit was with lubuntu 12.10 usb stick13:04
mungojerrybetter put this beast back together13:04
mungojerrymy lubuntu install was not working but may be unrelated13:05
mungojerryits a bad bug tho13:08
shaunoI would say it's just misleading.  but we tend to trust memtest enough that most people would be inclined to replace hardware before they start to suspect it13:09
directhexmungojerry, fwiw, yes, you can13:57

KrimZon_2what's the fix for when the hard disk keeps switching off and on in linux?20:11
KrimZon_2the power saving issues20:12
solarcloud_3scrnCrumbs that's a hard one  ::: Anyone remember this guy (??) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BonziBUDDY (???)20:16
ali1234solarcloud_3scrn: YES20:20
ali1234how could i forget?20:20
ali1234KrimZon_2: some hdparm magic. be careful not to low level format your disk though20:21
solarcloud_3scrnali1234, He hasn't tweeted in a-while :: https://twitter.com/REAL_BonziBUDDY20:22
ali1234i like to compare new-fangled desktop environments to him when i'm feeling uncharitable20:23
ali1234someone should make a bonzibuddy lens20:25
ali1234is that even possible? can we draw whatever into the dash through a plugin?20:25
ali1234or just send a list of results? (boring)20:26
ali1234i think i once asked about putting a shell into the dash20:26
ali1234and the answer was no :(20:26
solarcloud_3scrnali1234, I think it was just trying to get the right kinda hue .. http://www.meethue.com/en-US/getstarted20:27
ali1234One reader was quoted as criticizing the program because it "kept popping up and obscuring things you needed to see." - sounds like windows 8, ba-zing!20:28
solarcloud_3scrnWeb-Link ??20:29
ali1234it's on the wikipedia page you linked20:29
ali1234it sounds like windows 8 because http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTYet-qf1jo20:30
solarcloud_3scrnoh, that .. I got it from eopinions http://www.epinions.com/cmsw-EmailChat-All-Bonzi_Buddy?sb=120:30
solarcloud_3scrnali1234, just at 16:25 of your ytu.be video .. 'Index of UX guidlines' .. UX .. I think if anyone from Ubuntu mentioned that , everyone would have a field-day !!?!20:33
ali1234unity isn't anywhere near as bad as metro20:33
solarcloud_3scrnali1234, What does UX meaning to you ??20:34
ali1234user experience20:34
solarcloud_3scrnright, .. so you've a book with UX in the title on your shelf , right ??20:35
ali1234hmm... i have "3D User Interfaces In Java"20:35
ali1234that talks a lot about user experience (ie expectations and communication)20:35
solarcloud_3scrnali1234, It's a Yes or No Question.20:36
ali1234though the phrase wasn't really in common use back then20:36
ali1234back then it was just called "GUI design"20:36
ali1234then No20:36
solarcloud_3scrnAre you Morrocan, or something ?20:36
* solarcloud_3scrn bangs his head on his french desk.20:37
solarcloud_3scrnali1234, If you have no book titled *UX* then how can you know anything about Desktop Environments ?20:38
SuperEngineersolarcloud_3scrn: I have no book about gravity - but, trust me, I do know everything about it ;)20:40
solarcloud_3scrnEngineerÕS, ali1234 ~fails to address the gravitas of the situation he presents, he wants food and it's like we're feeding him.20:42
AlanBellali1234: basically just results: image, title, subtitle20:59
AlanBellgnome-shell on the other hand you can put in pretty much anything using the st toolkit21:00

daftykinsgood ol' scumm23:22
