czajkowskiso has my vote considering the amount I had to do00:00
czajkowskiright sleep lark before the NYE celebrations tomorrow00:00
JanCdepends on the local shop I suppose00:00
JanC(by "local shop" I mean "local web shop")00:06
JanCand really, I think it's more useful to give people the search results *they* want than to force "your selection" on them00:08
AlanBellJanC: yeah, but that depends on there being a web shop with a functional API and preferably affiliate scheme that can pay out in the currency and country of choice00:19
AlanBellI am quite keen to do more shops if I can find useful ones to do, probably mainstream shops rather than geeky shops00:20
AlanBelllike supermarkets and hardware stores etc00:20
JanCAlanBell: as long as searching shops isn't enabled by default, and the selection of shops can be localised, that sounds like a good idea  ☺00:22
JanCwell, a "shopping lens" would have installed shops enabled by default, of course00:23
AlanBellI like that the thing I did allows someone to shop on amazon.co.jp with descriptions and prices in yen and I can earn commission in GBP00:23
AlanBellanyone want to reddit http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/12/shopping-lens-for-gnome-shell/ or https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/564/amazon-shopping/ ?00:28
JanChaving local shops available is really important00:31
JanC(that's also an important problem with U1MS BTW)00:39

jussiAlanBell: are you theopensourcerer?03:42
czajkowskijussi: nope that would the theopensourcer :)09:45
AlanBelljussi: no, that is Alan Lord09:51
AlanBellbut theopensourcerer.com is a blog that we both use09:51
AlanBellthanks mhall119, it found its way to slashdot too :)09:51
Tm_Talourie: I'm disappointed, the blog is still online, no proper slashdot effect ):10:58
Tm_TAlanBell: even ^10:58
* Tm_T gets more coffee before he fails more with tabfill10:58
AlanBellonly 1780 blog hits today so far :)11:06
AlanBellour biggest ever day was 4,707 hits which was another slashdotting11:08
AlanBellfor that article11:08
AlanBellhttp://slashdot.org/story/09/07/23/1855211/Amazon-UK-Refunds-Windows-License-Fee-With-Little-Hassle but that was an Alan Lord article, this is one of my slashdottings :)11:10
popeyslashdot isnt anywhere near as popular as it used to be11:16
popeyprobably get more traffic from reddit front page than /.11:16
AlanBelllast time we got more hits from linuxtoday.com than slashdot (just about)11:22
AlanBelltoday there are 688 from slashdot and 151 from reddit11:23
AlanBelloh, actually 902 from slashdot11:23
AlanBellreddit is odd, just a link and comments, no actual article11:25
popeyyou'd get more from reddit if you hit the front page11:29
popeybut they are fickle :)11:29
AlanBellhow does that happen? lots of upvotes or something?11:58
AlanBellreddit is so slow11:59
mhall119AlanBell: you're actually responding to /. comments? brave man16:38
nigelbmhall119: lol16:48
IdleOnequick scan shows a lot less flames than expected.16:50
mhall119Yet still more than there should be16:52
IdleOneWithout fire what would be the point16:52
mhall119greed, didn't you read the comments?17:02
AlanBellmhall119: yes, I respond to comments in lots of places17:04
IdleOnegreed is a powerful incentive but that lens was not designed with greed in mind I think.17:08
IdleOnehad it been he would not have made it possible to change the affiliate code.17:09
IdleOneI could be wrong though. AlanBell does sometimes appear to be all about personal gain.17:10
AlanBelllooks like 2 people have bothered to change the affiliate code (and I made the epic fail of putting a typo in the default affiliate code which I have just fixed on the server side)17:12
MrChrisDruifEvening y'all, enjoying New Years Eve?18:40
MrChrisDruifAlanBell; I heard there's an issue with Ubiquity? Do you know how seriously it's been picked up? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/108454718:40
ubot2Launchpad bug 1084547 in ubiquity (Ubuntu) "Unclear which part of disk will be allocated to Ubuntu when installing alongside other operating systems" [Undecided,Confirmed]18:40
MrChrisDruifAnd for images describing the problem more clearly: http://askubuntu.com/questions/150550/installing-ubuntu-with-windows-which-is-left-and-right-when-allocating-space18:41
AlanBellI was not very aware of that one MrChrisDruif, I don't know if xnox is on the case or not18:42
MrChrisDruifIt's not been allocated to anyone, so I guess not AlanBell ?18:43
AlanBellprobably not18:43
MrChrisDruifCould you mention it to him/her? It seems like a serious issue if you ask me =)18:44
jcastroI know it's a known issue for a while now18:45
jcastronot sure what the status is though18:45
popey\o/ see http://ubuntu.com/18:46
MrChrisDruif13.04 isn't that close right? What's it counting down to? O.o18:49
dakerMrChrisDruif: new product www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/12/all-new-ubuntu-product-to-launch-jan-2nd-but-what-is-it18:49
MrChrisDruifjcastro; Apparently it's Importance is "Undecided"18:49
jcastrobring it up to the desktop list I think18:50
MrChrisDruifjcastro; mailing list you mean?18:51
MrChrisDruifdaker; Thanks! =)18:51
jcastroor maybe the design list, but that one is kind of worthless18:52
MrChrisDruifjcastro; I know. Not very productive I've noticed.18:53
jcastromarcoceppi: popey: is omg down for you guys?19:06
marcoceppijcastro: appears up from here19:07

IdleOnedoes OMG not do any proof reading before hitting to POST button?19:17
MrChrisDruifIdleOne; I doubt it...19:24
mhall119IdleOne: they probably don't do peer editing, and self-editing doesn't catch nearly as much20:13
IdleOnemhall119: apparently it doesn't it doesn't20:15
IdleOne ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)20:15
mhall119that's the fanciest smiley I've ever seen IdleOne20:20
IdleOneI stole it from someone I don't remember who20:20
mhall119you stole someone's face?20:26
IdleOnemhall119: just the face, not the whole head :)20:44
* philipballew goes back to making pancakes20:46
IdleOneI'll take a short stack.20:46

philipballewring in the ny in California20:47
mhall119philipballew: hey, can you do me a favor?21:25
mhall119can you tell me what the current ubuntu.com countdown time says for you?21:25
mhall119bkerensa: or you?21:25
* philipballew looks21:25

JoseeAntonioRmhall119: 39:32 for me21:28
mhall119JoseeAntonioR: what timezone are you?21:29
JoseeAntonioRmhall119: UTC-521:29
mhall119same as me then21:29
mhall119I think the countdown is adjusting for localtime, which doesn't seem like what they want21:29
JoseeAntonioRit is21:30
mhall119and even it it is adjusting, it's doing it wrong21:30
mhall119since PST has less time than EST21:30
mhall119not more21:30
AlanBellheh, yes that is backwards isn't it!21:32
mhall119looks like they were expecting localtime, but got UTC21:33
AlanBelloops. So, they will fix it when they get back to work on Wednesday, when the timer runs out21:34
JoseeAntonioRoops, great problem21:35
mhall119timezones suck21:36
JoseeAntonioRmhall119: isn't there any way you can contact one of the sysadmins so they can fix it?21:36
mhall119I don't know if a sysadmin could, or if someone from the web team would need to do it21:38
JoseeAntonioRthe code says 18:00 GMT, maybe 18:00 UTC would work?21:41
mhall119JoseeAntonioR: I think there's a problem in the code21:44
JoseeAntonioRthere is21:47
