davmor2MooDoo: yesterday was international sue popey by a troll day and then insult anyone day apparently08:06
MooDooah cool08:07
MooDoothat explains the +b :)08:07
davmor2MooDoo: did you not get the invite?08:07
MooDoodavmor2: alas no08:08
MooDoodavmor2: so you're saying we should troll on popey again today then?08:09
popeygood luck with that08:09
davmor2MooDoo: no you missed out it was only yesterday....for now at least :)08:09
MooDooah well08:10
davmor2I'm sure some troll will take a pop at popey again, but him being the proverbial duck helps :D08:10
davmor2we do seem to attract some real whack jobs though08:11
MooDoodavmor2: it's always been the case08:12
davmor2MooDoo: well I mean you me and czajkowski are still here for one ;) then there is knightwise I mean he's not even from the UK and comes here to join in the fun, and then there is zmoylan-pi and diddledan and twisted I mean there isn't a hope in hell right08:15

czajkowskiok nn08:30
knightwisehmm.. cant decide if i am going to buy a fitbit or not08:32
knightwisehave untill noon to decide :)08:33
zmoylan-pii got a nuband for €40 in argos.  works well for counting steps and gives me a rough idea of how bad my sleep is08:34
knightwisezmoylan-pi: thats roughly what i'm looking for too08:35
knightwisejust a way to get some metrics on my health08:35
zmoylan-piand i saw an android smart watch in a discount store for €20 which claims to have same features...08:35
knightwisezmoylan-pi: the problem with android watches (i have a first gen moto360) is the battery life08:36
zmoylan-piyeah, the nuband claims it will run for 3-4 days between charges but last android watch i saw was huge and barely got a day and a half08:37
zmoylan-pibut it's like a 1960s digital watch were you have to press a button to make it display time08:37
zmoylan-pibut for what i want it works very well.08:38
davmor2I had fitbit one till the battery died reasonable accurate and some fitbit devices can be synced on ubuntu with the use of galileo08:38

Myrttion what?11:52
popeydavmor2: not as yet11:54
davmor2popey: man these trolls you'd think they would at least back up their screaming addabs11:56
TwistedLuciditydavmor2: I looked up the name they PM'd me. Seems it's been grumbling on since ~2012. Whether or not there's anything to the claim, I dunno. I'm no lawyer.12:38
TwistedLucidityMy guess is though the bodkin yesterday was...er...delusional to say the least.12:38
davmor2TwistedLucidity: bodkin and delusional like it that polite for beep beeping beep beep beeping whack job right12:40
TwistedLucidityWell, their cognitive processes may not have an adequate alignment to social norms and reality; yes.12:42
popeythey're a long term troll12:43
TwistedLucidityCharge them with harrasment. :-)12:44
davmor2TwistedLucidity: mind you he did publicise popey data so does that mean he himself created a data breach and therefore needs to be counter sued with the same EU directive?12:46
TwistedLucidityWon't that depend on whether or not they can be considered a "data controller"?12:46
TwistedLucidityAlso, with popey being world famous (on the covers of magazines etc) he probably has legions of screaming fans camped outside his house 24/7. So it was clearly public knowledge already.12:47
* popey goes to pull the curtains12:50
knightwiseI heard that popey was almost smothered by middle aged women throwing their nickers at him while walking down the street12:50
davmor2that's why popey always has his curtains drawn I did wonder12:51

* daftykins places him in the 'fainted' section15:47
diddledanI think you misspelt feted15:47
daftykinscan't get beta then feta15:48
davmor2oh god now you got popey mouse onto cheese again15:48
diddledanpopey: I love your dedication that a mere utterance of your name brings you out of the woodwork :-p15:48
daftykinsi reckon it was more like a "ugh diddledan has summoned me, brb folks" :D15:48
diddledanin the middle of a teleconference he'll be like "sorry, mark, I need to go talk to dan"15:49
davmor2diddledan: yeah ruining it for the fans, popey get back on stage, popey for pm, and popey for pope too!!!!!!15:49
diddledandavmor2: I asked in one of the tuesday ubuntu on air community gatherings how far the application for popey's sainthood had progressed. it seems that the powers-that-be hadn't even filed the paperwork15:51
davmor2diddledan: tish shame on them15:51
diddledanwhat with that and chloewolfiegirl asking everyone about their preference of cookies vs biscuit vs cake15:52
diddledanat least the important topics are covered!15:52
davmor2diddledan: surely the only response to cookies v biscuit v cake is YES, all three please, NOW!!15:54
daftykinsperhaps the question was simply which order to consume them in?15:54
daftykinsi mean that's the only logical explanation!15:54
davmor2daftykins: you are a genius, depends on the cake obviously15:56
daftykinsah wise, sir15:57
daftykinsi'd be for a carrot cake or cheesecake myself, but i'd settle for a chocolate fudge...15:57
diddledandaftykins: +1 on all three of those. you have in one utterance covered my three most favourites15:58
zmoylan-piwhy isn't there a cake with biscuits embedded in it.  ice cream cake with jaffa cakes15:59
daftykinsi think from my perspective it'd be because that would cut into the swift shovelling process16:00
davmor2daftykins: yeah but you have to take into account the biscuits and cookies with it. So if it is a light flavoured cake you might lead with that then go into the sweetness of the biscuit and the cookies with it's chocolate goodness16:00
daftykinsmy my we're getting into dessert-Pro level now16:00
davmor2you have to take dessert seriously it's the only way to thoroughly enjoy just ask popey about cheese he's the same :)16:02
zmoylan-pithen again cheese cake uses crushed biscuits as a base16:02
davmor2zmoylan-pi: see again this is why it is important to know the cake you are dealing with16:04
diddledanomgubuntu are reporting on a new meizu: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/06/meizu-mx6-ubuntu-edition16:38
diddledanit's not announced by meizu or canonical tho, so I'm assuming if it exists popey won't be allowed to tell us so16:40
diddledangotta love NDA16:40
popeyI haven't even seen one16:40
popeyso no idea16:40
popeybut yeah, if meizu are leaking then chances are it's legit16:40
popeythey leak like a leaky thing16:40
zmoylan-pipopey doesn't know so it must be official :-P16:41
diddledanzmoylan-pi: haha16:41
diddledanzmoylan-pi: yeah popey is too nice to keep secrits16:41
diddledanso they don't tell him :-p16:41
popeyThis is more accurate than you know.16:41
diddledanthis one is better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GixR1XepbQs16:44
davmor2oh oh oh me sir I know sir popey is locked in a cupboard and hidden away from all the products16:55
popeyso true16:55
zmoylan-piliving off beans on toast, cheese on toast, anything that can be slid under the door...16:59
davmor2zmoylan-pi: no no it's popey mouse he just lives off cheese17:01
popeymmmmmm cheese17:01
popeyalthough today I'm doing crushed potatoes with broccoli and bbq port steaks.. nom nom17:02
davmor2and stilton17:02
daftykinswell i suppose he could put the stiltson17:02
Seeker`popey: what's the difference between crushed and mashed potato?17:02
daftykinsmight make tending the bbq a bit tough, though17:02
zmoylan-pimashed is when they are mashed pre been slid under the door. crushed is when they get mashed _as_ they get slid under the door... :-P17:03
davmor2Seeker`: you use a masher to mash potatoes, crushed are softened till they can be crushed, that and it's what it says on the box of the microwave dinner we slid under the door to feed him on17:04
popeySeeker`: leaving them partially intact17:05
popeynot smooth like smash17:05
Seeker`basically you get bored halfway through making mashed potatos and think "screw it, I'm hungry, that's close enough"?17:06
popeySeeker`: kinda17:28
popeyThey were *delicious*17:29
davmor2popey: no that's your treat for the but if you're really good we'll let you out the cupboard for the weekend17:41

diddledanis it possible to discern the difference between "random foreign gibberish" (welsh) and "random foreign gibberish" (gaelic)20:56
daftykinshmm, you'd probably have to go with the intonations - do the Welsh go up and down like the Irish? :>20:56
mapppsi cant find the key thing for inernet banking..BAH20:57
zmoylan-pivery much so, spelling, pronounciation and an actual chance to wear out the y key20:57
diddledanof course the word "gibberish" is pronounced in two different ways depending on whom you speak with: guh-ibberish and juh-ibberish20:57

daftykinsperhaps i shall just say no and suggest ordering one off amazon XD21:00
diddledandaftykins: if you manage to get a clean rip, I suggest passing the files through a noise-generator21:01
daftykinsit's a steal! £70 new - https://www.amazon.co.uk/101-70s-Hits-Various-Artists/dp/B000TUC4X2/21:01
zmoylan-pistill ripping them... last time i ripper cds (a month or two back) it took less than 20 mins to rip 3 cds21:01
daftykinswell you probably do it with a very basic no error correction straight to $format type :)21:01
diddledanyou mean you're applying dilligence?! fo shame!21:02
daftykinshowever this one is cringing on the last 2 tracks where there's a multitude of damage to the surface, so the error correction is having a field day21:02
daftykinsah yeah, prope Exact Audio Copy (EAC) rippin' involving gap detection, .CUE file generation - and test and copy ripping to ensure it's 1:1 :D21:02
diddledannext thing you'll be telling us you're using a format with greater clarity than 64kbps mp3!21:02
daftykinsFLAC <321:02
zmoylan-pii did have one badly scratched cd so i played it in music cd player (played ok there) and used a cable link to pipe the audio into wav files which i converted to mp3 :-)21:03
diddledanyeesh, who are you doing this for? I'm guessing someone from royal lineage by the effort and quality of the result!21:03
daftykinsi don't think these bad boys are going to play in anything, if error correction can't get past it, it's game over21:04

daftykinsah no that was Ram21:04

diddledanrandom tangent: I've got a 360KB (DD) 5.25inch floppy drive and a 1.44MB (HD) 3.5inch floppy drive hooked-up to a USB device called a kryoflux for ripping floppies21:07
zmoylan-piwhy such a low spec 5.25" drive?21:08
daftykinswhat on earth are you pulling off? :)21:08
diddledanI ebayed it21:08
diddledanI don't believe I have any 5.25inch floppies that are non-360KB21:09
zmoylan-pii'm sure i could find a few cover floppies from the 90s...21:09
zmoylan-pimost of the 3.5" were aol discs ended up been sent to customers with software patches on them... thank goodness for aol... :-)21:10
daftykinslast time i did anything with a floppy i had to sit and re-read it about 12 times before it must've presumably remagnetised and started to work21:11
daftykinsremoved the last one the last time i was in the server though, needed more space for HDDs!21:11
zmoylan-pii really liked the ls120s which were a super floppy 100% compatible with 3.5" discs.  and also read a 120mb floppy21:12
daftykinsah that rings a bell21:12
zmoylan-pii convinced my boss to replace the tape drives in point of sales systems with them.  saved a bundle and much less hassle.21:12
zmoylan-piwhen they stopped making them we swapped to zip disks21:13
daftykinsback when imation weren't in an utter state21:13
zmoylan-piiomega did well with zip for a while too21:13

diddledancourse the 2.5inch usb hdds are close but not quite as usable as interchangable units with a reader box21:16
diddledanI still have a desktop pc tho :-p21:16
zmoylan-pithey moved from zip to jaz drives but their customers didn't follow them as it was much more expensive for not such a giant leap21:16
