MutantTurkeystill kinda trying to figure out what to do about this desktop14:47
MutantTurkeyits basically unusable14:47
TheLordOfTimee: unreadable14:48
TheLordOfTimebut hey i see you :P14:48
TheLordOfTimeMutantTurkey:  parts?14:48
TheLordOfTimeif your system's not usable, sell it as parts14:49
MutantTurkeyit's for work. they just gave it to me14:49
TheLordOfTimewell E: Unreadable Image, so...14:52
JonathanDI hate shiny monitors.14:52
MutantTurkeyJonathanD: jedijf could use your advice14:53
MutantTurkeymy new desktop has a glossy display, so much so that I can barely use it. I want to have my boss return it but think it might be overstepping14:55
MutantTurkeydo you think it would be fine to demand a swap?14:55
MutantTurkeyits going to make my eyes fall out14:56
JonathanD"This display hurts my eyes" is a reasonable complaint, in my opinion.14:56
JonathanDThe best solution is to convince some other poor soul how awesome it is, and trade it with them for theirs.14:57
MutantTurkeyThey'll have none of it14:57
MutantTurkeyI already triee14:57
MutantTurkeyJonathanD: did you see the link ^^? that's a picture of it14:57
JonathanDI did see the link.14:57
JonathanDit hurt MY eyes.14:57
JonathanDI'm not sure what LCD maker sits down and says "You know what would make this monitor better? If I could see myself in it."14:58
MutantTurkeyJonathanD: it's great for viewing videos on really, and anything not black14:58
MutantTurkeybut when you sit at a terminal all day....14:58
MutantTurkeythat is a paste of my propsed email14:58
MutantTurkeydoes that seem good?14:59
JonathanDI can clearly see your phone, you, and everything around you in the photo :P14:59
MutantTurkeyI can spy on my neighbors 20 feet away easily14:59
MutantTurkeyok sent15:00
JonathanDOne thing I do like about thinkpads is they offer non-gloss screens.15:01
MutantTurkeyof course, the matte screen was my major attraction to my thinkpad15:01
MutantTurkeyJonathanD: I think it will go over well15:08
MutantTurkeyjust slightly annoying15:08
InHisNameTrade it with someone that has a 19" 1280x1024 type screen, they just might overlook the reflections to go higher res.15:15
InHisNameDowngrading would help make you happy too15:15
MutantTurkeyI have another monitor I just got that is 23 inches!15:23
MutantTurkeyso I have another seperate monitor that rocks15:23
MutantTurkeyi'm looking to trade though definitively15:24
InHisNameI got a 19" monitor that I'd consider trading.  Buuuut, that one does not belong to you but the company you work for, right ?16:35
MutantTurkey howdy all19:16
MutantTurkeyhow goes it? I got on the subway and it was cold, I pop out at 30th street and it's 40 degrees!19:18
JonathanDGoes well19:19
MutantTurkeygood :)19:20
MutantTurkeydrop tables19:40
waltmanLittle Bobby Tables19:43
MutantTurkeyThe mouseovers are always the best though19:45
MutantTurkeyI really like the what-if lately19:45
MutantTurkeythat's awesome!19:45
MutantTurkeyI enjoyed the recent one about sneaker net, because for our mirrors at trinity, when there is a new mirror going online, we mail them a hard drive19:46
MutantTurkeywaltman: can I get some matlab help? has to do with return values20:38
MutantTurkey 45 [loadfasta,~]=fastaread(fastafilename);20:39
waltmanok, if it's quick...20:39
MutantTurkey 46 numreads=numel(loadfasta);20:39
MutantTurkeyline 45, what does that mean? the fasta read function returns a struct with two fields20:39
MutantTurkeyis that just capturing only one field? the first one?20:40
MutantTurkeynevermind, it defintely is that :-) ok you are awesome anyway20:41
waltmanOn 45, it means the function returns 2 variables, but you only care about the first one20:41
waltman~ is a place holder meaning "ignore this return value"20:41
waltmanyou don't need the square brackets if it only returns a single value, so that's what's going on with 46.20:42
waltmanI just discovered that feature a day or two ago20:42
MutantTurkeypretty cool actually20:43
MutantTurkeyI have to many context switches in a day. It really throws me off23:14
MutantTurkeybtw my solution was to just put the new desktop under the table and pretend it's a normal tower23:14
waltmanMutantTurkey: any way you can turn off the light over your monitor?23:22
MutantTurkeywaltman: the ones directly above me and behind were out and the shades were closeed23:23
waltmanand you still had all that glare?23:23
MutantTurkeyit is super glarey23:25
MutantTurkeyI just put it under the desk23:26
MutantTurkeysimple solutio23:26
waltmanyou put your monitor under your desk?23:30
MutantTurkeyit's an all-in-one pc23:31
MutantTurkeyI just put the whole thing under the desk23:31
MutantTurkeyand used another monitor23:31
waltmanso how do you...aha.23:31
MutantTurkeythis job is good though for my resume because it has serious programming and sysadmin parts23:38
MutantTurkeyso I can pursue either easily23:38
