BigRedSIf I see this, against what should I be filing a bug? http://avi.co/stuff/empathy_enter_account_settings.png10:17
BigRedSIt doesn't look like it's part of empathy. Which reminds me, is there some other way to give empathy my Jabber details? I'm running low on working XMPP clients :)10:17
BigRedSAh, now that I've uploaded a screenshot it's working...10:19
directhexubuntu online accounts10:19
BigRedSwell, it's getting one step further, now it's just refusing to maintain a connection....10:19
directhexwhich is heavily forked10:19
directhexfrom gnome online accounts10:19
BigRedSWhy do I need to "Authorise Ubuntu to access [my] Jabber account"? I just want Empathy to be able to use it. Or is that what it means?10:20
BigRedSAh, even if I try that it disconnects and helpfully tells me "No reason specified"10:20
lornajaneat least it is honest10:21
BigRedSThere's a huge number of problems that I'm having in 13.04 that were solved in about 2004. I'm really unconvinced by some of this 'progress'10:21
directhexcomputers are basically terrible10:21
BigRedSthey used to be a good deal better. I'm a bit miffed at being in 'that' camp, but I'm really trying to work out what's better now...10:23
brobostigongood morning everyone,10:24
BigRedSOh yeah, I still thing Gnome 3 was one big excuse to not fix NetworkManager10:24
BigRedSencrypted filesystems! That's one plus side. And the search-orientated DE is good, but it's a bit bad that Unity's broken alt-f2 a bit10:28

daubersDon't really want to get involved in that argument though11:52

popeyYou know when you lose those dongles that come with wireless mice?13:28
popeyI just dug an HP xe4100 laptop out of a drawer and there's one I've been looking for, in the USB port13:28
dwatkinsthere are wireless mice with dongles?13:28
popeythere are13:28
dwatkinsheh, nice one13:28
popeymost have them13:28
dwatkinswhy don't they just use Bluetooth, though?13:28
mgdmecause it's less faff not to, I'd guess13:29
popeybecause bluetooth eats batteries13:29
popeyand you have no guarantee the device has bluetooth, so why not ship a dongle13:29
lornajanethis is exactly why I like my peripherals wired, they're harder to lose13:29
popey(these aren't bluetooth)13:29

popeytrue dat13:35

directhexprotip: windows 8 upgrade prices will more than double in 2 days' time13:39
directhexif you think you'll ever want it, buy today, not next week13:40
directhexuntil the end of jan, win8 pro upgrades are £24.99 if downloaded. not 100% sure what the UK price will be on friday, but if the US pricing is an indication, then £12513:43
directhexthis is, of course, how microsoft have been able to claim to investors that they sold a record number of win8 licenses in 2012q413:44
mungbeanhave an interview in a few minutes, since my job is going away to be replaced by a very simlar looking one :S13:46

AzelphurHmm, anyone here familiar with sixaxis? I'm having issues20:59
AzelphurI plug my controller in, run sudo sixpair, it detects my controller, then I run sixad --start, it says press the PS button now, which I do20:59
Azelphurand then..nothing happens20:59
daftykinsAzelphur: any landlord news sir?21:03
Azelphurdaftykins: a little, he finally sent out a plumber for the boiler and got that sorted, still leaving pretty much everything else however21:04
daftykinsnot even any comments on it?21:05
AzelphurI pointed out the door on the washing machine was broken, so he said he'll just take the washing machine away today and I'll buy a new one, which was "nice" of him21:05
Azelphurbut then he didn't even turn up to take it away, >.<21:05
daftykinswhat a todger21:05
Azelphurstill got all the same issues pretty much, still ignoring everything21:06
Azelphurbut at least he came out for the boiler so we are one step in the right direction, if I can just get him to sort out a letterbox I'll be happier21:06
daftykinshe shall be the first to die in our new world21:06
Azelphurnot having a letterbox is frustrating as hell21:06
Azelphuryou order something online, but you don't know when it's coming because most things are 3-5 days, you miss the delivery and they can't put the note through the door so you can't go and collect it.21:07
Klettbarwhy haven't you got one21:08
Klettbarhow come21:08
Klettbarthe simpler things21:10
Klettbarlike a laptop without  a battery21:10
AzelphurKlettbar: landlord keeps saying he'll do it and then doesn't21:10
Klettbarthey should sell bateeries and build laptops around them21:10
Klettbarmaybe you can do it yourself and get a refund21:11
Klettbarproposing that you can21:11
Azelphuryea, we was going to go for legal advice on monday, but he turned up with a plumber on monday and actually made some progress21:11
Azelphurthe plumber was really nice, the landlord had only scheduled him to fix the boiler21:11
Azelphurbut I explained how I had a leaking radiator and tap that the landlord was being so troublesome about, so the plumber did those too (yay)21:12
daftykinsAzelphur: neat :D21:13
Azelphurmy boiler had him stumped for ages, he took the entire thing apart and had to read the manual before we figured out what was going on21:14
Azelphurapparently after 19 hours it disables itself and doesn't turn on again unless you do a reset procedure21:14
Azelphurand because the radiator leaked, it depressurised and turned the thing off, by the time I figured out that it was off, 19 hours had already passed I guess21:14
* AlanBell is on raring21:15
Klettbarplumbing is serious stuff21:15
Azelphurindeed \o/21:15
Azelphurbut yea, stuff is going wrong faster than it's getting fixed21:16
daftykinswelcome to houses21:16
Azelphurthere's a pipe on the side of the building that has burst due to the cold weather now, it spews out water21:16
Azelphurfunny enough right on top of the previous problem where the gutters are broken21:16
Azelphurso it's like, double waterfall21:17
daftykinswhat kind of pipe?21:17
AzelphurI'm not sure exactly, its not constantly flowing, maybe a drain from a sink or something.21:17
daftykinsyou got any pics? that place sounds... rundown21:18
AzelphurI got a fun pic of the most recent issue21:18
Azelphurthe oven went supernova21:18
Klettbarhave you found out where the main valve is21:19
Klettbarto stop all input water in in case of21:19
Klettbari knwo what i mean21:19
AzelphurI put some burgers in there, used an eggtimer so I knew what was going on, first 10 minutes were fine, over the next 5 minutes it literally turned into a smoke machine and filled the entire room21:19
daftykinsKlettbar: stopcock yeah :)21:20
AzelphurKlettbar: nope, perhaps I should do :P21:20
Klettbarfirst thing21:20
Klettbarteh save ass stopcock21:20
daftykinsthat looks like some tiny ducting above the extractor fan, if that is one21:20
daftykinshow long did that take to clear? D:21:21
Azelphurdaftykins: when I moved in the previous tenants had left a frying pan full of fat/oil in the oven, we cleaned it out properly, but I figure they somehow got oil inside the oven, so when the oven reaches full temp, boom.21:21
Azelphura few hours.21:21
daftykinsa trap :(21:21
daftykinsperhaps to punish the sucky landlord21:22
Azelphurliterally it did all that in a matter of minutes, I was coming down and checking on it every 5 minutes21:22
Klettbarwhat the best second hand laptop buy deal on ebay21:22
Klettbarchanging topic21:22
AzelphurKlettbar: look for dell refurbs, there's lots on there that are pretty cheap and have warranty.21:22
daftykinsi've heard bad things about electronics on ebay21:22
Azelphuralso, you might want to check the dell outlet, same thing.21:22
AzelphurI buy a lot of electronics from ebay21:23
Klettbarthey say dell is not that reliable21:23
AzelphurKlettbar: you can quite safely find anyone to say anything is unreliable.21:23

daftykinswow, how does anyone stay anything but miserable there?22:02

shaunoyou just get used to it I guess.  like when I was in michigan, 4 months of snow was normal.  4 days cripples the UK, but when it's normal, you just ignore it and carry on22:04

daftykinsyeah i bet it's a laugh seeing the UK 'coping' :)22:05
daftykinsAzelphur: i see you tried xbmc which would've been my idea, i think some of those lot use the PS3 controllers as remotes, maybe the xbmc forum has something?22:05
daftykinsotherwise i was sure directhex or popey had played with one at some point on Linux perhaps 0o22:06
