zmoylan-piwell with all the other spying on your actions online, what's a few more criminals?17:34
daftykinsoof, 5 mile ride severely kicked my posterior today17:38

daftykinscrazy SFF style unit there17:40
zmoylan-pifirst pc i got my brother was a packard bell... cheap, solid and shipped with all the software and hardware he'd ever neeed17:41
daftykinswin 3.11 and solitaire? :D17:42
zmoylan-piwin me :-D x217:42
daftykinswow you must really not have got on!17:42
zmoylan-piit gave no grief till he started using it online in a location where his phone line was split with a neightbour so struggled to get 28k17:43
daftykinsoof17:44
daftykinsi was really jealous of the lady today, she's practically opposite the parish exchange, so her VDSL line syncs at 82Mb down and 32Mb up17:45
zmoylan-piat least with me as it was win 9x you could rip put every virus with just a boot disk... when i upgraded it to win2000 to make a new printer work it got a lot harder to keep going17:45
zmoylan-pithat's when he got a mac17:45
daftykinseww. hope you insult that at every opportunity17:45
zmoylan-piat 28k the 5mb download twice a week of av updates got cancelled constantly17:46
zmoylan-pithe mac wasn't infected every week needing a reinstall from scratch17:46
daftykinsnor would a Windows machine in the right hands, but so it goes.17:47
daftykinsmust've been a fan of the naughty side of the tubes...17:47
zmoylan-pithat's when he began his evil plan to get broadband... he rang them once a month till it was installed.... just over a year iirc... he can be _very_ persistent17:47
daftykinssame brother that had the words with the supermarket exit driver fella? :)17:47

m0nkey_Guys, I need a new phone. I've decided to use some of my savings so I'm not being a cheap bastard (Like I was being the other day) .. suggestions?18:32
daftykinsXD18:32
daftykinsyou sure? they tend to be crap that is redundant in a couple of years so it might make more sense going with those basic (presumed telco contract) offers18:33
* zmoylan-pi temples fingers and prepares pure evil suggestion of a nokia 3310 >:-)18:33
m0nkey_Now I can look at the S7, iPhone 7 and other similar devices.18:35
m0nkey_Or the Google Pixel18:35
daftykinsand the OnePlus 3T18:36
diddledanm0nkey_: the moto G gets good reviews for a budget device - for top-end I like my iPhone 7 :-p18:38
daftykinsdiddledan: you disappoint me!18:38
diddledandaftykins: baa18:38
m0nkey_I got to admit. I sort of like the iPhone18:38
daftykinshow can you do dev and be ok with their evil moves?18:38
diddledandaftykins: because baa18:38
diddledan:-p18:39
daftykinswhat are the sheep's feelings on the matter?18:39
diddledanhe has no choice, I cornered him18:39
zmoylan-piany iphone as long as it's white18:39
diddledanI'm somewhat intrigued by the daydream vr thingy but don't think I'd use it18:39
daftykinsi've just been handed a brand-spankin' Dell XPS 13 9360, the kaby lake edition (intel i5 gen 7)18:40
diddledan*drool*18:40
m0nkey_Thing is, an iPhone tends to just work. Pretty much any accessory will.18:40
m0nkey_Also, it has the added bonus of being compatible with my car head unit.18:40
daftykinsand you use how many?18:41
m0nkey_I just a few bluetooth thingies18:41
daftykinsjust don't forget to subtract headphones from that list sans-adapter ;)18:41
zmoylan-piit just works, as long as you do things the apple way and are prepared to keep following their lead18:41
diddledanadapter comes in the box18:41
m0nkey_Heh, headphone are already bluetooth. I couldn't give a m0nkey_ about not having a headphone jack.18:41
diddledanplus they give you a pair of lightning headphones too18:42
zmoylan-pii believe people lose the adapter quite easily18:42
* m0nkey_ uses his big ass Bluetooth headphones18:42
daftykinsi suppose folk who don't care for quality use the stock ones18:42
diddledan>.<18:42
m0nkey_Which are quite warm during the brisk Canadian winter days18:42
* zmoylan-pi also uses big headphones on cold days to keep my ears warm18:43
daftykinswell, seems that despite you asking your mind is already made up!18:43
daftykins:)18:43
zmoylan-pithe need for real headphones over bt might only be a valid argument if there is good fm radio available in canada18:45
daftykinswell i would personally never even consider wireless tech for such a job18:47
diddledandid anyone spot this link I mentioned in the darkest hours of the night: https://github.com/plasma-umass/browsix18:47
zmoylan-pione weird thing i have had happen with bt is that sometimes in aldi and lidl they tried to connect to their staff headset intercom thingy18:49
daftykins"would zmoylan-phone please come to customer service for a swift clout 'round the ear 'ole"18:50
daftykinsi got a right dirty look from the supermarket checkout lady out in the furthest parish today, must've been disapproving of my coming from 'so far' away :)18:52
daftykinssort of League of Gentlemen moment18:53
zmoylan-pijust as long as you get out of there before sunset...18:53
daftykinsoh i did, no bike lights on me so i had to hurry away!18:54
daftykinscould've gone to the cinema had i had them on me - quite keen to see The Arrival but i see they've stopped showing it already :|18:54
zmoylan-picycling in winter without lights...18:54
daftykinsyeah, i got home in light hours still so it was fine18:55
daftykinsi was quite unlucky because the batteries i had in one had leaked the white goodness and ruined the whole unit i discovered the other day18:55
zmoylan-pii haven't had alkaline batteries leak in years..18:56
daftykinsi've had a batch of 4 Duracell all do it just in the last month :(18:56
zmoylan-picheck that they are genuine duracells?18:56
daftykinsfinished the pack now18:57
zmoylan-pione of the main reason i bought them was they guaranteed no leaks18:57
diddledanthose energizer adverts are misleading: how many zinc batteries do you see in the shops at all these days let alone buy?18:57
zmoylan-piwhen i used them in psion and palm it was super important to me18:57
diddledan"we last much longer than a battery you can't buy"18:57
daftykinsmaybe back in the day they advertised homo-sapiens over neanderthals in the same way18:58
diddledan"homo sapiens have much more brainpower than the leading homo erectus"18:59
zmoylan-pi20% usage in uk... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zinc%E2%80%93carbon_battery#History18:59

m0nkey_Couple of reasons for iSheep. 1) Car, plug-in and go. Works seamlessly with the head unit. 2) Don't use Gmail, I use plain IMAP hosted by FastMail, they support push on the iDevice. 3) Couldn't give a hoot about the lack of headphone jack. I use bluetooth headphones. :)19:07
daftykinswell you only need up to the / before 'ref=' :)19:07
m0nkey_diddledan, awesome.19:07
daftykinsi suppose on the plus side you fit even better as new-shauno now, m0nkey_ ;D19:09

m0nkey_I gotta go shovel the snow. Back later.19:16
zmoylan-pihe's just stepping outside, he may be some time...19:17
m0nkey_If I'm not back in 20 minutes. Just wait longer.19:17

daftykinsi'll make it 32 minutes, 'cause that's how long until the cylons catch up again </BSG>19:18

knightwisetrue, Anderson quit after season 1 , because the americans wanted more cheap spacemonsters19:57
zmoylan-piand the design of the eagle is still one of the best spaceships ever to make it to tv19:57
knightwiseAgreed19:57
knightwisebasically its the space version of a ford transit19:58
knightwisedurable, hardworking and utilitarian19:58
zmoylan-piand so good it made it into red dwarf...19:58

m0nkey_So, you see, both Dunn and I were under Oveur, even though I was under Dunn.20:05
diddledanlove those movies20:06
m0nkey_ugh, trying to run portsnap on my bsd box, the mirror is so damn slow20:18
daftykinshave i mentioned how great Apple software is on Windows, lately?20:20
daftykinsright now you need to manually run Apple Software Update, to update Apple Software Update, so it can get the latest Apple Software Update, so then you can update iTunes!20:20
daftykins\o/20:20
diddledandaftykins: iTunes on my insiders build is b0rked20:21
diddledanit starts fine but about a minute after opening it crashes20:21
daftykinsoh no that's normal ;)20:22
diddledan:-p20:22
daftykinsnot looking forward to being asked how to use this Dell :(20:23
daftykinsit's one of *those* types of clients :P20:23
knightwisei HATE itunes20:24
daftykinsgood man!20:25
daftykinssometimes i run into it on folks' machines20:25
daftykinsi think Apple do it on purpose, it's either Quicktime or iTunes that actually overtook Java as the most exploited-when-unpatched program on Windows boxes20:25
diddledannot many folk use java these days. it seems to only be used by android devs and anyone running an ide like eclipse or jetbrains thingies20:27
diddledanthere's nothing written in java that targets the consumer afaict these days20:27
daftykinsdidn't openoffice install it typically? i keep finding it on some folks machines that really shouldn't need it and that seemed to be the only commonality20:28
diddledanyeah, there's some bits of oo/libre office suites that use it but I don't think it's a hard dependency20:29
diddledanat least not anymore20:29
