daftykinswhatever my old graphics card was doing to these machines i've been working on, it seemed to be ruining their BIOSs - a reflash of one is making it behave again o011:43

daftykinsshould get my new keyboard by the weekend \o/12:32
daftykinsno more basic membrane-based Dell cheapy!12:32
zmoylan-pia proper ibm model m or modern remake? :-)12:33
zmoylan-pia backup weapon in event of zombie apocalypse...12:33
daftykinsoh dear no, that'd be a bit too hipster a choice12:33
daftykins:) my das keyboard had about that amount of heft to it, before it began regularly dropping vowels12:33
zmoylan-pinot built to the same industrial level of quality12:34
daftykinsyu culd tell my keybard had a prblem with O's12:34
daftykinswell i couldn't bear to use a thing without super12:34
zmoylan-pithat's when you use 0 instead of leet speek12:34
daftykins:>12:35
daftykinshmm pesky slow paying clients, how'd you handle those, zmoylan-pi?12:36
daftykinsthreaten to swap all their mouses for comedy ones?12:36
zmoylan-pii show them my collection of hammers12:36
zmoylan-pi...and then my collection of singing potatos... :-P12:37
daftykinswow, that ought to be worse than sitting through a Celine Dion concert12:37
zmoylan-pino one has complained... >:-)12:38
daftykinsnot more than once, at least12:38
zmoylan-piand if you start counting at 0 it all balances out...12:38
* daftykins hands zmoylan-pi an old CPU12:44

solarisfireHey guys, how come I still can't upgrade my 14.04 LTS servers to 16.04.1 even though it's at the point release now??13:48
daftykinsbecause it needs to be ok'd13:49
daftykinsand it hasn't!13:49
daftykinsdon't be in a rush to fix what isn't broken ;)13:49
solarisfireBut I <3 new shiny stuffz XD13:49
daftykinsas much as you love your backups and breakage?13:50
solarisfireWhat's a backup?13:50
daftykinsgoodbye.13:50
solarisfireHaha XD13:50
solarisfireFine, I'll wait...13:50
solarisfire*sits patiently*13:50
daftykinsdo it silently :P13:50

daftykinshaha, track a package on yodel - "your item was at your local depot at 00:26 today"15:45
daftykins*click more detail* your local depot - Southampton15:46
daftykinsdoh!15:46
diddledantrouble at tor appears to be concluded? https://blog.torproject.org/blog/statement-015:46
diddledandaftykins: yodel are evil15:46
daftykinsyou have to do it where there's an echo, sir15:48
daftykinsit doesn't really matter too much because we just have folks in white vans that operate as a given courier, so if their rep in England is bad, you'd have to be pretty rubbish to fail at deliveries in an island15:48
daftykinshmm folk in other channels tried to pass off the Tor thing as being a psychological campaign to discredit the project by the US gov, but it'd be quite the work to get folk to come up with the accusations that've been going around15:50
daftykinsstrikes me that that project is not a safe one to go near15:50
diddledanechos as in: https://youtu.be/DBVTBTUbKdU?t=3715:51
daftykinsthe very same, but more like coming off a mountainside15:52
daftykinsoh i just remembered a thing i was supposed to do!15:54
diddledanpee?15:54
daftykinsno!15:56
daftykinsclient got a text from O2 about his 'upgrade' coming up, which i'm a bit puzzled on since we have a SIM only service for him there15:56
diddledanhaha15:57
daftykinsone of my jobs a bit ago was to research UK telcos and pick him one for his worldwide travel15:58
daftykinsbecause on-island telcos charge a lot just to go to England, most folk have to carry two phones15:58
popeydual sim phones ftw15:59
daftykinsthat would not work with things like whatsapp15:59
popeywhy?15:59
daftykinsthe single instance app handled identity by phone number, so if you switched from one to the other you'd have to be tied to just one of them as your identity16:00
daftykins*handles16:00
popeypeople have multiple whatsapp accounts?16:00
daftykinsmy client does16:00
daftykinsi wonder how the app even sees those phones16:01
daftykinsi suppose they're developed to consider one primary?16:01
popeyworks fine here, with only one account16:01
popeyit doesn't care about the phone number once authed16:01
daftykinsah i suppose it's only when a SIM is removed it drops some bricks16:01
popeyI haven't had that problem16:01
popeyI swap sims a lot when travelling16:01
daftykinsfor some reason i had it in my head that you have to reboot between SIMs, but now i think about it i've seen those phones where both are connected at once16:02
popey2fa tied to one sim, so i have to put that one in sometimes16:02
popeythen swap back to local sim for better data rates16:02
daftykinsmmm that must be fun16:02
popeyyeah, now I use 2nd sim slot for SD card, it's more annoying16:02
popeytry not to do 2fa type things when away16:02
popeyor have another 2fa auth provider like google authenticator16:02
daftykinsyarr16:03
daftykinsmy MS one has decided it won't pop up auto anymore and makes me enter codes from it like the google one :(16:03
popey:(16:03
daftykinsi quite liked the auto one, it would just come up with a notification with allow/deny16:03
popeyi re-flashed phone and now use sd card which makes it impossibe to use two sims now16:03
daftykinsi suppose one plus the ubuntu phone OS might have is not going redundant so quick like android...16:05
daftykinsvery strange news claiming blackberry are producing another handset, they don't realise they're dead!16:06
popeydaughter had two teeth out today. she looks like she's had botox on her lips16:07
popeyquite amusing16:07
daftykinsXD16:08
daftykinsbest control the social media shares, otherwise you'll be on the daily mail before bed time ;)16:09
popeyheh16:13
daftykinstime to raid the 4 pack of blueberry muffins in the kitchen :)16:16
diddledanthey won't last long once you've started on them16:20
daftykinssuch is their fate16:21
diddledanthe red-band trailer for sausage party is awesome (and not safe for kids)16:25

daftykinsexcuse me sir, may i point out that you're running a _Microsoft_ account in order to access that insider preview build?22:54
daftykinsugh.22:54
* zmoylan-pi wonders if there's money in a service that will disable the mic on laptops/phones...22:55
daftykinsah the tinfoilers would never go for it, you'd have to do teardowns and unplug22:56
zmoylan-pii have a few old android phones here i'm tempted to try drilling into the mic a few mm to see what the kill depth is...22:57
daftykinsearlier i was half wondering if old phones could be used instead of Pis for the music player i made out of mine22:58
daftykinsi was just enjoying some more Vangelis Blade Runner soundtrack down in my lounge from it :)22:58
zmoylan-pican't go wrong with vangelis...23:00
