diddledanthey don't mention that Windows itself cannot boot if cmd's infrastructure was removed02:00
zmoylan-pithey've said that since 90s02:02
zmoylan-pithey even tried to push that you couldn't remove internet explorer from windows02:17

evildespotYou'd need a leading close quote, Shirley10:09
foobarryobviously the result of a drunken pub convo over xmas10:10
evildespotinvolving the word "hilarious"10:11
TwistedLucidityfoobarry: The owner was explaining the prank on Reddit a few days ago10:43
TwistedLucidityAnother example http://i.imgur.com/00ir7fQ.png10:45
evildespotThat one would actually work (assuming injection of unescaped user input)10:46
TwistedLucidityHere is the thread https://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/5l47yy/someone_registered_drop_table_companies_ltd_in/dbsumjs/10:48
foobarrydoes anyone use smokeping? running it from a docker container and not sure how to increase the freuqnecy11:00
foobarryah, think i've got it11:05
foobarrywhen there's no vim/nano/emacs on the dock so you have the use sed to edit a file :(11:06
evildespotAt the risk of causing an argument (with which I will not engage :) ) a Docker container for something you can trivially apt-get install with virtually no dependencies may be a bit heavyweight11:21
foobarrynot true, smokeping installs a web server11:30
foobarrysince it creates rrdtool type graphs etc11:31
evildespotit only Recommends that, IIRC11:36
foobarrythats how i want to use it, so a container is perfect11:36
foobarryalso, containers for everything!11:36
evildespotas you wish11:36
evildespotbut then you need to learn how to edit files in containers without expecting your favourite editor to be in the container11:36
evildespotbecause that's not how containers (are supposed to) work11:37
foobarrythat depends12:52
GargoyleAnyone got any thoughts on why my Chrome no longer opens links from other apps (Doesn't seem to matter which app). Chrome launches or opens a new window, but the address bar is just blank.13:00
foobarryrebooted or killed backgruond chrome processes?13:01
GargoyleYeah. It's been doing this for a few weeks now.13:01
GargoyleThis is the tail of syslog while clicking a link in slack. https://gist.github.com/gargoyle/d033dbae04b9b1442c171bcacf4d5d6a13:03
GargoyleIf only I could just click that link! :P13:05
GargoyleSweet, it worked. Nice find. Thanks13:07
GargoyleSeems something to do with trying to add Google Hangouts changed the entries in there.13:07
foobarryi have a markdown file than when exported to html, looks wonderful in the browser, but when exported to PDF, looks like a page printed from netscape in 1996, big text, etc14:13
foobarryhow do i get it to print or pdf a bit more nicely?14:14
foobarrythe html has a single centralised column that looks nicer14:15
foobarryoh, pandoc does it nicely14:23
diddledanturkey has had another attack14:44
TwistedLucidityThat's arrests over the New Year attack, no?14:45
foobarryyes. unless diddledan has been in a man cave14:45
diddledanI really feel for the Turkish population because they're a country divided between east and west so they have the west's progressive society combined with the push-back from the extremists who reside in the east14:46
diddledansorry the BBC tweeted the wrong link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-3852154914:47
TwistedLucidityErdogan also appears to be a bit of a nutter14:47
diddledanwell there is that14:48
SebthreeBQM10HDTwistedLucidity, hi15:09
SebthreeBQM10HDhow do I change the file system of a USB stick, using a UBuntu Live ?15:09
SebthreeBQM10HDor how do I cut a big video file into smaller parts15:10
SebthreeBQM10HDTwistedLucidity, yeah got big video files that are over 4GB15:11
TwistedLucidityUnless it's FAT32, it's have thought it would be fine15:11
SebthreeBQM10HDso doesn't really work pr9perlly trying to put that on fat15:11
SebthreeBQM10HDTwistedLucidity, yep that's the issue,  the external hard disk is fat  whatever15:11
SebthreeBQM10HDmy 8GB usb sticks are fat32 as well15:11
TwistedLucidityDo you need to use it on Windows?15:11
SebthreeBQM10HDprobably not with the right codec installed for sound15:12
SebthreeBQM10HDotherwise it's just images15:12
SebthreeBQM10HDI did thinik this to, I either go NTFS or I  could try Ext4 or something15:12
TwistedLucidityAs you don't need Windows support; Ext4 and fahgeddaboutit15:12
SebthreeBQM10HDright but I still got to format the usb.  opening up gparted wasn't much good, ant just makek a partion, but right let's have a look at the link15:13
SebthreeBQM10HDTwistedLucidity, it did copy mostly to fat32, but then  coudlt tell wasn't going to finnish15:14
SebthreeBQM10HDTwistedLucidity, I have the pain of re installing WIndows as the next thing to do with the computer as well uh!15:14
SebthreeBQM10HDand upgrading things back to WIndows 1015:14
SebthreeBQM10HDbefore any Linux  installs happen15:14
SebthreeBQM10HDTwistedLucidity, planning on quad booing as well :d15:14
SebthreeBQM10HDWindows plus three Linux distros15:15
TwistedLucidityYou can use NTFS, but IIRC there are performance issues with that on GNU/Linux.15:15
TwistedLucidityOr were; not checked in a l-o-n-g time15:15
TwistedLucidityI would thing Gparted would do it to. Just set the format after creating the single, whole-USB patition15:15
TwistedLucidityNo idea how well Windows 10 plays with others; never used it15:16
SebthreeBQM10HDTwistedLucidity, I think NTFS is ok, unless the partion isn't shut down properly15:16
SebthreeBQM10HDthen may not mount properly with Linux15:16
SebthreeBQM10HDthat's what I remember from before15:16
SebthreeBQM10HDyeah having to open up Windows again, and clsoing down properly, so would detect in LINUX15:16

brobostigonnew job started today, woop, :)18:44
popeyhow did it go?18:45
brobostigonit went well, walked around my supervisor ost of the afternoon, picking up inforation, no realy work done to be honest.18:47
brobostigonwalked behind, i should say.18:47
brobostigonwell, we did bring out some stock and organised it, but that was about it.18:51
brobostigona toy shop, :)19:05
daftykins\o/ what are we celebrating / stretching for? :D21:15
foobarrydo they sell scale models?21:15
brobostigonfoobarry: yes?21:15
foobarrythen it's the best kind21:16
daftykinsone porsch model lego set please21:16
foobarryalso i think knex better than lego for kids21:16
foobarrymy son is really enjoying actually making stuff creatively21:16
foobarryand not losing bespoke pieces all the time21:17
* brobostigon was a maccano boy.21:17
foobarryi guess knex is the closest thing nowadays21:20
brobostigonfair point.21:22
daftykinsmmm i had the rollercoaster21:22
daftykinsi never made anything custom though, just followed instructions and then i was done :P21:22
foobarryor knew21:23
daftykinsknex rollercoaster, i only have very vague memories of meccano as if perhaps i never owned a model o0 not sure21:23
foobarrythere's some knex models that are a bit 2D, that lend themselves to being made in 3D quite easily21:24
daftykinsbut every single variant i just followed instructions21:24
foobarrysome knex kits have 40 models you can make21:24
foobarryso the 2D flat car could be replicated and then some joining pieces to the 2 parts to make a 3d car21:25
brobostigonwhereas with maccano, you can make anything, you arent fixed.21:25
daftykinsc'mon BBC, release the 4K blu-ray Planet Earth II :)22:05
daftykinshttps://www.amazon.co.uk/Planet-Earth-Blu-ray-Region-Free/dp/B01M629REH/ only 1080p right now22:06
=== mcs__ is now known as mcs_
zmoylan-pithey'll wait till people are clamouring for the 8k release before releasing the 4k version :-)22:43
zmoylan-piand it'll be released on laserdisc :-P22:46
daftykinsi'll hold out for the VHS22:48
zmoylan-piand not the superior betamax version?22:49
daftykinsthat'd require a player22:49
zmoylan-pior vcd...22:49
daftykinsat leasy if i buy the client a 4K title i can keep the bluray version from inside :D22:50
zmoylan-pisquished down to a 100 megs per episode... :-P22:50
daftykinsthe 4K BD player's firmware update is 132MB!22:56
diddledan*sadface* https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-01-04/star-trek-youtube-fan-movie-ruled-not-to-be-fair-use23:04
daftykinsthey should've parodied it, then it would've been fine!23:06
zmoylan-pithey have no probs with you making fan flicks if they're non profit so he must be trying to make dosh somewhere23:11
zmoylan-piand iirc the term tricorder has an open use that rodenberry insisted on as he just knew someone would invent a practical version someday23:13
daftykinswell they claimed the fan flic makers would gain from getting jobs in the industry, hah23:20
zmoylan-pistretching the truth a little there...23:20
zmoylan-pii seem to remember one fan based effort was raising money online and was hoping to make a small profit so got shut down for that reason23:24
