TheLordOfTimewhat about it :P04:46
ChinnoDogIt happened.04:58
ChinnoDogI got some new glasses in the mail today. They are really nice.05:33
ChinnoDogAnd so inexpensive05:34
SadinHi all06:17
InHisNameI've gotten about 5 pair so far.  Last pair I bumped the Rx by 1/4 and I like them better than 4 y/o ones earlier.  Eyes getting worse over time.  Two broke, and one was lost. 2 pair left.  All < $10 each with shipping.06:18
ChinnoDogHow do you lose them so fast? My last pair must be 10 years old or so and I've never lost them. In fact, they are in great shape but the prescription is old.06:20
ChinnoDogI think I paid almost $400 for those. I ordered these online for around $80.06:21
InHisNameOnly lost pair in 50 years of glasses.   3 years ago.06:26
ChinnoDogThe site I got mine from has a promo code for a free first pair.06:27
ChinnoDogJust thought I would mention since you aren't into paying big bucks for them. glasseshop.com, promo code FIRSTFREE06:28
InHisNameThat's how I got mine.  Several diff sites.   $8.99 shipping + free = <$10\06:28
InHisNameDon't need any right now.06:28
ChinnoDogYour prescription must not be strong if you can get cheap ones. I am picky about my lenses because I can see chromatic distortion in high index mediums and it drives me up a wall.06:29
InHisNameSay, ChinnoDog, do you know how to 'probe' in a script (bash) to tell if a drive is set to read only ?06:30
ChinnoDogNo. Sorry, I am not that good at bash. :-(06:31
InHisNameor ksh, or csh, or anyothershellyoucanname06:35
SadinChinnoDog what the heck is chromatic distortions06:38
InHisNamecolor changes ?06:41
SadinInHisName ah06:41
Sadinive not the attention span to put two and two together atm lol06:42
ChinnoDogSadin: It is when light of different frequencies is attenuated at different rates. I should have said "chromatic aberration". If you make lenses out of material with high chromatic aberration you see yellow and blue fringes around objects.06:42
InHisNameerrors in colors06:42
SadinChinnoDog THAT sounds pretty annoying06:43
InHisNameVERY annoying if was in my eyeglasses.    Plasitic lenses are almost that way compared to real glass.06:43
ChinnoDogIt is! when I was a teenager I purchased a pair of glasses from Lensecrafters with the new high index lenses they were pushing and I hated them for that reason.06:43
Sadinknock on wood, but im lucky to always have had perfect vision06:44
Sadinsigh... its good to be back to xfce06:45
InHisNamelucky dog you, Sadin06:45
SadinInHisName yeah im lucky yo have gotten my dads eyes my mom however is as blind as a bat.06:46
Sadinmy dad and i, 20:2006:46
Sadinmy mom is around 435:600ish06:46
Sadinits bad06:46
ChinnoDogAs you can see on the chart plain glass has an abbe value around 57. Polycarbonate lenses have an abbe value of only 30.06:47
InHisNameI used to be 20:82506:47
InHisNameNow only 20:52506:47
InHisNameOld age moves eyes to more farsighted.   So my glasses get lighter as I age.06:48
ChinnoDogMy lenses are made of trivex with abbe value of 44. I couldn't find any online glasses places selling spectralite lenses or I would have considered them.06:48
InHisNameStarts about 40 years.   Focus range stops being so wide and then you need 2 or even 3 pairs to see well at all distances.06:49
ChinnoDogWhere is cloning technology when you need it?06:49
InHisNameComing along.06:50
ChinnoDogMaybe someone can grow me some new eyeballs one day06:50
ChinnoDognight vision upgrade and zoom lens wouldn't hurt either06:51
InHisNameTV's hanging on wall like picture?   People laughed that we'd see that before 2000 back in '60's.   A bit late, but still great.06:51
InHisNameThe BORG has some nice technology.  Care to join up ?06:52
ChinnoDogYes. They can prepare a nice ocular implant for me.06:52
InHisNameI'll keep my poor eyesight and indepedance06:52
ChinnoDogTime to sleep06:55
