zmoylan-pithere'll be wandering bands of fatties mugging people leaving supermarkets for snickers and mars bars...13:12
MSpongeI'd fight over a toblerone aswell.13:18
* zmoylan-pi has a few black toblerone in press that were on special...13:20

penguin42Yeh ok15:33
* penguin42 wonders what city name starts with 'mapp'15:38
diddledanI'm just watching eddy snow's keynote for the libreplanet conference (recording) and the thought occurred that governments don't need to backdoor the OS itself necessarily but could embed their snooping stuffs into drivers that we willingly load into kernel space - e.g. nvidia or fglrx. people don't normally consider those as being risky at all16:46
penguin42people may not, I certainly do16:47
MSpongeAny chance of a link ?16:49
diddledanMSponge: https://media.libreplanet.org/u/libreplanet/m/libreplanet-2016-the-last-lighthouse/16:49
MSpongecheers, matey.16:49
MSpongeThe last lighthouse .. Alot of L's there .. Lets hope he's not *lost* the plot, again.16:51
MSpongepopey, ping (if not busy - it's le weekend afterall).18:59
MSpongepopey, Wats the possibility of getting the Fossil Q Display Watches to interface with Ubuntu, ya think ?19:01
MSpongethere Androids clobber.19:01
popeyno idea, never heard of them19:07
* popey googles19:07
zmoylan-pinever heard of fossil... didn't they make the palm os watch yonks back>19:07
popeyif they have an API, more likely than if they don't19:08
popeywe have support for pebble because they have a decent API19:08
popeyand one of their employees hangs out in our telegram group and provides (unofficial, but huge amounts of) help19:08
MSpongefair enough .. just Mumzie got clobbered at the airport by a sales person & she asked if it could be used on Ubuntu (?). And they were abit flumixed by the question.19:13
zmoylan-pikudos for them not straight out lying...19:13
MSpongeNice bit this one I found ... https://media.libreplanet.org/u/libreplanet/m/free-software-song-a4de/19:13
MSpongegoes on abit , but good effort all'round.19:14
diddledanmy mum doesn't know one end of a computer from the other. she stays far far away from anything computerised. so she's unlikely to be asking "does it work with ubuntu" any time soon :-p19:16
MSpongeMum keeps asking me have I written a linux version of her 5000Euro's blackboards software for her Open University teaching courses.19:17
diddledanlet me guess, you suggested such a thing in jest and now she expects you to build it? :-p19:18
MSpongeI keep telling her, We need to get a decent camera for the kickstarter, and she just says ..19:18
* diddledan expects the lumberjack song next19:19
zmoylan-piwriting code looks so easy on those nice american csi shows...19:19
diddledanzmoylan-pi, you can get two people coding simultaneaously on the same keyboard, dun'tchaknow19:19
MSpongeOowh, I'm gonna be on the internet, that'll be Rimmel special edition lipstick then. Then changes her mind Elizabeth Arden lipstick  for the video.19:20
MSpongeI think she using Max Factor (or at least she won't shut up about it) so she says.19:21
MSpongeI think she gives it too much promise about becoming famous for 15 minutes or something.19:22
* MSponge think she should stick to her bridge club, and make me some Pie and custard (possibly Elmlea as a chilled alternative).19:24
MSpongeOff to bed. Have a look at this website if ya bored 25,000 yoyos for an Apartment (in english also) , www.funda.nl21:01

macoMyrtti: Long Melford looks not too far from Cambridge21:47
MyrttiAugust might be a bit tight, but possibly21:47
macopopey: hiya21:47
macoIs there anywhere y'all'd say we should go, given we're into medieval/tudor history, archery, and (in my case) textiles? Kentwell, the Mary Rose, and the V&A are on the list, but locals will know better'n me what neat things there are to see & do22:04
maco(and, of course, folks I know from UDSes, it'd be nice to see you again)22:06
popeyapparently Winchester (our olde capital city) is the best place to live in the UK :) http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-3585578322:07

daftykinsnah, didn't much go in for that, as i went later ;)22:15
macowhen a friend visited Ireland, she visited both the Donegal Tweed Centre and the corrolary for Harris Tweed. Given the history of English woollens and Scottish mills as well, anything similarly interesting?22:17
macoalso the search on that nerdy day trips site seems to not filter anything at all >_>22:18
popeyhehe, just found photos of my old arcade cabinet on the london hackspace wiki https://wiki.london.hackspace.org.uk/view/Equipment/The_Beast23:20
zmoylan-pione of my dm's has a gauntlet cabinet that he can't bear to part with even if it takes up a tonne of room23:29
popeyis it a 4 player one?23:29
popeyI can imagine it does, even the two player versions23:29
popeyI use a picade now instead of using my jamma games themselves.23:29
zmoylan-pi4 player version...23:29
