bigcalmI can confirm that looks silly in xchat with Ubuntu font (not mono)10:59
directhexwho uses irc on a non-mono font? *silly*11:00
zmoylan-pilooks very 80s in irssi on my pi11:00
davmor2diddledan: I'm using ubuntu mono it looks well messed up11:07
awilkinsSteam controller on Linux : so far, odd but interesting11:20
awilkinsRegisters as 5 input devices11:20
awilkinsOne mouse, one keyboard, one other HID, and two other inputs11:20
zmoylan-pityping emails now a challenge :-)11:20
awilkinsAt first I thought the right touchpad was way oversensitive11:21
awilkinsBut it may have been because I had a meathook on it when I plugged the cable in11:21
awilkinsBecause it clicks when you move, it was sounding like a demented geiger counter that responded to my personal electric field11:22
awilkinsReplugged it and it's no longer mental11:22
bigcalm1st weirdness found11:53
bigcalmThe Steam Link is displaying my whole desktop. That is 3 monitors worth11:53
bigcalmSo the big picture mode screen is not actually taking up the full screen11:53
davmor2bigcalm: hahahaha11:53
bigcalmMaybe it'll fair better when I reboot into Windows after work11:54
davmor2bigcalm: do you only have it on one screen then?11:55
bigcalmdavmor2: yes. Remember that of my 3 screens, the middle one is rotated11:55
bigcalmThis gives a very weird desktop res11:55
bigcalmI was expecting only one screen to be streamed to the TV11:56
davmor2bigcalm: yeah it is possibly just streaming x you can ofcourse just turn the other screens off I guess11:58
bigcalmAll unexpected11:58
davmor2bigcalm: as in, in the settings rather than physically11:58
bigcalmI'll try streaming from my laptop, that has just the 1 screen :)11:58

diploThere has been talk of windows sipport for a long time13:03
diploand daftykins *groan*13:04
daftykinsaww c'mon13:04
popeyi liked it13:04
popey+1 friday humour point for daftykins13:04
daftykinsyaaay \o/13:04
diploBest AV for windows now ( cheap or free )13:05
diploMSE is supposedly rubbish now13:06
daftykinsyeah i've been fighting that at clients recently13:06
diploYeah we were talking about that a couple of weeks ago13:06
daftykinsi'd deleted and hidden the 'get windows 10' update, but the little blighter is sneaking its' way back on13:06
zmoylan-piinstall win10 before win10 installs you13:07
zmoylan-pii belive ms has apologised for this flamingo up, they didn't say if they were going to help people roll back to the os they want though13:10
popeystock answer is "restore your backup" as it should be13:11
daftykinsthe way i've seen it so far, a user would have to go to the windows update program and hit ok with 'windows 10' selected to install13:11
daftykinsin fact, even on patch tuesday it sneakily keeps all the patches unchecked and just the windows 10 item ticked13:11
zmoylan-pidoes restore your back up restore the recovery partition to it's pre win10 state?13:11
awilkinsI think it stores your old winders in a c:\old_winders folder13:19
daftykinsyep ^13:20
daftykinspretty much the whole original C: just gets moved in13:20
daftykinsooh-err this puts a dampener on my plans for Spain - http://arstechnica.co.uk/business/2015/10/bbc-begins-blocking-vpn-access-to-iplayer/13:21
zmoylan-pii'm sure someone has coded up an alternative workaround already :-)13:22
awilkinsYour plans for Spain were to watch TV?13:22
zmoylan-piwhile sitting by pool using tablet for geek cred :-)13:23
daftykinsawilkins: clients holiday home, my thoughts were the same as to why he wants to watch TV and not just enjoy the place :P13:24
daftykinshmm looks like it might just be common VPN providers, it's still working fine for me VPN'ing through my VPS with digitalocean13:24
zmoylan-pithey are getting better at cracking down on vpns all the time, you'd hate to have to rustle up a workaround when you sit down to watch some eastenders...13:26
awilkinsI can route things through my home router I supose13:30
awilkins6Mbit/s is enough for basic streaming right?13:31
awilkinsEven big pretty full SD DVB-T streams are only like 15Mbit/s13:31
daftykinsour problem down here is a dynamic IP, i don't fancy relying on something through the home too13:33
daftykinsso i'm gonna try it with this digitalocean VPS to start with13:33
daftykinsworked just now from here at least, with the iplayer website13:34
daftykinsmy challenge is to come up with something easy to use that could show the live streams ideally13:34
daftykinsah excellent found a working addon with Kodi13:43
daftykinswow impressive quality too13:44

bigcalmAnybody not got Portal 2? I have a steam activation code for it going spare14:10
popeySam doesn't :)14:15
bigcalmpopey: did you pre-order the steam link?14:15
bigcalmThen Sam can have my code14:15
* popey hugs bigcalm 14:15
popeyhe loves portal14:16
popeywould be fun to play 2 player14:16
bigcalmI'd like to try that again some time14:16
daftykinsmmm 'tis fun that14:16
awilkinsFree Portal2 from steam controller?14:45
* awilkins is going to reboot and play Rocket League14:45
awilkinsSince they gave it away with the controller I'm presuming that it plays really nicely on it14:45
awilkinsJust as soon as my Windows VM stops installing upgrade14:46
daftykinsyou need to boot it more often so it can do its' thing ;)14:52
popeymy windows 10 machine wakes up randomly14:52
popeyi do wonder if it's doing that to check for updates14:52
awilkinsAnd report it's collected findings to MS14:54
awilkinsThe ones it gathers while it's not running14:54
awilkinsBecause it's that good at it14:54
diddledanpopey, my dad's is doing that, too14:54
diddledanproblem is they don't seem to turn off again afterwards14:55
diddledanit would be ok to start a desktop to check for updates and then turn off again, but a laptop not plugged-in AND not turning off again after is a pain14:55
diddledan(some folk have their systems to not idle to sleep because they often leave it doing big tasks)14:56
popeyoh mine does14:57
popeynot on/off though, I'm talking about waking from suspend, then it goes back to sleep14:58

diddledanwhaaa? apparently playboy are going to stop publishing nude pictures23:26
directhexdiddledan: yeah. they already did on the website23:27
directhexdiddledan: the interesting thing that happened when they did that is not that the average age of visitors dropped from 47 to 30. it's that traffic quadrupled23:28
