floridagram<RazPi> If anyone has good medical connections or knowledge on insurance to do surgery at a good hospital talk to me.00:01
floridagram<ahoneybun> Umm00:01
floridagram<ahoneybun> You OK @RazPi00:01
floridagram<RazPi> Emotionally no.00:02
floridagram<KMyers> What's wrong ?00:02
floridagram<RazPi> I am very not ok.00:03
floridagram<ahoneybun> I do know someone who knows a lot about insurance and medical00:03
floridagram<KMyers> @RazPi - can you provide some more info?00:04
floridagram<KMyers> @RazPi - can you answer my PM00:10
floridagram<RazPi> I do t know how much I can tell yet00:11
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> Raz, you're really worrying us00:12
floridagram<RazPi> Family. Cancer.00:13
floridagram<KMyers> Wow. That can be rough fortunately there are a lot of treatment options available and a lot of great hospitals in South Florida that specialize in certain forms of cancer.00:15
floridagram<RazPi> Yes I need to find more information and figure out how to get the best possible treatment for them and afford it00:17
floridagram<KMyers> The best treatment is the most important thing, the cost is not something that should be considered in most cases00:19
floridagram<ahoneybun> @KMyers how do I remove a birthday from my calendar?01:40
floridagram<AdamOutler> Did you get the Obama care?16:13
floridagram<AdamOutler> The whole point of insurance is that you are supposed to keep it when you're well and it pays for when you are sick.  This is why Obama care isn't insurance.  It is free shit that comes from magical trees.16:14
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> i actually did have insurance that was subsidzed by it, it saved me a ton on my meds and helped when i was sick17:14
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> so, you're right, it's not insurance, it's a program17:14
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> a program that has helped out millions of americans to actually be able to get care when they need it17:15
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> and it wasn't free17:15
floridagram<KMyers> Nothing is free however the American Healthcare System in general is significantly overpriced. I am not in favor of Universal Healthcare (that is another mess that can bankrupt a country and lead to substandard care). I do feel that both insurance and treatment need to be affordable.17:17
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> although the emails from the marketplace are annoying17:18
floridagram<KMyers> I saw a bill from my Step Father who had to go to the hospital. He was charged $25 PER PILL of an over the counter medication, $15 for 2 cotton swaps and $18 for cotton gause. Granted these costs were paid by the insurance, I still feel they were insane17:18
floridagram<KMyers> He was charged over $80 for less then $2.00 of supplies that I could have gotten from Walgreens17:19
floridagram<KMyers> I am not trying to be cheap, I will gladly pay for a service/product that is priced appropriately but come on...17:21
floridagram<KMyers> BTW, the Over the Counter Pills they charged $25 per pill for was baby asprin17:21
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> don't forget the epipen scandal17:22
floridagram<KMyers> Yeh. I understand that part of the epipen was for the convenience as you can get injectable epinephrine for a few bucks at a pharmacy (with a prescription). The price they moved it to was beyond insane17:24
floridagram<Ivoriesablaze> what was it? like 500 a dose?17:24
floridagram<KMyers> I am normally against price regulation - a business should be able to charge whatever they want for a product or service however in the case of the epipen it is different as the product was developed with funds that came directly from taxpayer funds17:25
floridagram<KMyers> 500 for 2 epipens. Each has a few doses depending on the amount needed.17:25
floridagram<AdamOutler> WTF?  I'm on LTE18:28
floridagram<KMyers> Nice18:29
floridagram<AdamOutler> I don't understand.  With Ki4a, I get 150mbps.  Without, just 20mbps18:30
floridagram<AdamOutler> @KMyers , can you reproduce this?18:41
floridagram<KMyers> It could be some sort of Traffic Shaping.18:42
floridagram<KMyers> I am a bit busy on the phone but I have seen similar results in the past (not to that extent)18:42
floridagram<AdamOutler> It's odd because my download should be my homes upload and the upload should be my homes download18:43
floridagram<AdamOutler> For some reason my upload and download are way higher than on LTE and I'm supposed to see 150down, 15 up at home, which should limit me to 15 down here.18:44
floridagram<AdamOutler> And there is no logical reason I should have anything faster than this.18:46

floridagram<KMyers> Oh great.. Someone go bubble wrap Betty White ASAP20:19
maxolasersquadI setup RetroPie on my Raspberry Pi in my living room last night. It's really awesome.20:49
maxolasersquadI need to get more controllers.20:49
floridagram<AdamOutler> 2-years later, the Army calls me to ask questions about a temperature monitoring system I used to admin.20:49
floridagram<KMyers> Tell them there is no need. (Data Center) Climate Change is not a thing20:51
floridagram<AdamOutler> unfortuantely, it ran out of storage and is no longer monitoring.20:51
floridagram<AdamOutler> It was for military medical refrigerators20:51
floridagram<KMyers> No Need : Tell them there is no need. (Medical Refrigerator) Climate Change is not a thing20:52
floridagram<AdamOutler> Lol.  But seriously, medical refrigerator temps must be precisely maintained.  The drugs must be considered bad if out of temperature for a certain period of time.21:03
floridagram<KMyers> I know, just messing with you21:04
