loptaI'm wondering whether to try Ubuntu 14.10 or 14.04.214:17
foobarrytry = how long for?14:18
loptaProbably a month or so.14:18
jpdslopta: Try both?14:19
loptajpds: Hmmm... that's a possibility I hadn't considered.14:19
jpdslopta: Spinning up a VM takes a few minutes.14:20
loptaI'll try 14.10 first.14:20
loptajpds: True enough and that's what I do on my work laptop. I'll be running this test on bare metal though (an old desktop PC at the office)14:20
popeyI'd go for 14.04.214:36
loptapopey: I'll download that next then.14:39
lopta(once this torrent's in).14:39
loptapopey: Is that because it'll be around longer or because there's newer (less tested?) stuff in 14.10?14:41
popeylonger support14:41
loptapopey: Thanks for the insight.14:41
foobarryhence my question about "a month or so"14:44
loptaThinking about it, I should break out my laptop.14:44
lopta...think I'll let it thaw out a bit before I power it up though.14:45
popeywas it buried in snow?14:53
jpdsMaybe took it skiing?14:53

bigcalmmoreati: heh, nice. Sometimes tempted to change my surname15:28
MyrttiI've not yet had a day when I've not regretted doing it. The only bit I'm feeling bad about the wedding. I can only hope it gets easier once all the paperwork is finally done.15:37

* zmoylan-pi misread that and wondered what a fancy toffee was like...16:01
zmoylan-piprobably not a scots clan...16:01
bigcalmlaurac: I think Jon should change his name16:02
diddledanI'm not gonna get used to laurac's new nick :-p16:03
davmor2laurac: prod16:16
davmor2at some point laurac will snap and then we'll know it's still her16:17
lauracbigcalm: eh why ?16:17
lauracI never get that when men change their names to the wifes but each to their own tbh :)16:17
lauracI do like tradition16:17
directhexthere's no paperwork for a wife to change her name, or keep her name. just do it. any other choices require deed poll16:18
directhexdouble-barrelling, or husband changing to wife's surname, deed poll16:18
directhexwhich is a PITA16:18
zmoylan-pii prefer mononyms.  there's only one me16:19
directhexeveryone should use a GUID to identify themselves?16:19
directhexworks until we colonize other planets & need to switch to UUID16:19
zmoylan-pican i use klingon characters in my guid? :-)16:19
lauracloth double barrelling!16:19
daftykinsamusingly a mate just messaged to tell me my name was written wrong on the funeral attendance list for his dads funeral the other day16:20
daftykinsi even spelt it for this church guy!16:20
Myrttiin Finland you need to fill a form to choose a last name when you're getting married. Both need to fill it, even if they keep their own names, which is the default.16:21
bigcalmlaurac: only suggested it to be contrary16:21
bigcalmlaurac: a cousin of mine and her fella both changed their surnames when they had a baby together.16:22
bigcalmBut aren't married16:23
daftykinsthat's a cunning way to do it16:23
foobarrywhy not marry?16:23
zmoylan-pididn't want to fill out the forms :-)16:23
loptaAh poo. It was looking promising until the reboot but now I have a black screen.16:25
daftykinsreboot after having done what? :)16:26
loptadaftykins: Installing 14.1016:26
lubotu3A common kernel (boot)parameter is nomodeset, which is needed for some graphic cards that otherwise boot into a black screen or show corrupted splash screen. See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132 on how to use this parameter16:26
daftykinstry that16:26
daftykinsunless you know the exact hardware of the machine16:26
bigcalmfoobarry: they have their reasons. One might be that they've just had a baby and don't want the expense of a wedding16:28
bigcalmWho can say16:28
loptaLooks as though a cold reset helped.16:29

daftykinsi prefer to just apt-get dist-upgrade ;)16:33
zmoylan-pimy childhood cat used to assinate vacuum cleaners by pushing them down the stairs till they broke16:33
zmoylan-pishe wasn't a fan of hoovers16:33
loptaWe used to have a little spherical hoover that floated on a cussion of air.16:34
loptaI wonder whatever happened to those.16:35
loptaDoes Ubuntu ship with bash?16:35
daftykinsyes bash is the default16:35
Azelphurzmoylan-pi: I remember I fell down the stairs onto the family hoover when I was a kid :P16:36
loptaHas it been patched against "shell shock" (in case corporate IT ask me)?16:36
Azelphurmanaged to Karate chop a chunk of it off on the way down16:36
zmoylan-piwhatever happened to dysons wheelbarrows with a ball for a wheel?16:36
daftykinslopta: ages ago, yeah16:37

daftykinssome web based thing?16:39

loptaXubuntu works on it ...as does MS Windows 10 Technical Preview.16:46
daftykinshaha, i think people have very different definitions of 'works' :D i couldn't stand anything single core now16:46
loptadaftykins: I have a dual-core Atom box at home and Mrs. lopta has a quad-core Phenom II.16:47
loptadaftykins: I have a shelf full of single-core desktops at the office though and if we use them at all, it'll be mostly as RDP terminals.16:48
daftykinsmmm makes sense16:48
daftykinsthe College i used to work at and teach at gets donated even quad core systems now16:48
loptadaftykins: We're not that fortunate. ;-)16:49
daftykinsi need to get in touch actually, there was talk of hundreds of laptops being offered 0o16:49
loptaTime to try another reboot.16:49
loptaI'd like to try one of those 8-core Atom chips but I don't have ready access to one and it's not a priority.16:50
daftykinsi think of all atoms as being glorified calculators :)16:51

diddledanexcept for hosting vms16:54
daftykinsnot if they're sensible + sufficiently funded :)16:54
intrbizX5550 is a quad core chip is it not16:54
loptaHmm... might be bare metal. Apparently the X5550 is quad-core.16:55
loptaMight be a single-socket server.16:55
intrbizor old one CPU installed16:55
daftykinsquad core with HT16:55
