daftykinsstrangely, they're planning on running a large power cable from the northern tip of France just to the east of me here - up through the island of Alderney - to England O_O12:44
zmoylan-pithe person i got the link from is an engineer who fixes the wind turbines amongst other things so i'm inclined to believe it's at least rougly accurate12:44
daftykinsvery neat12:45
daftykinsi'd bet there are some fun systems to play with in power generation12:46
daftykinsoh my specs were shipped by a courier named sky net, i think it's the rise of the machines12:49

daftykinsthink the tap that's there is rusted solid too...13:06
zmoylan-piit's just a bag of water so you can give yourself a navy shower.  wet, soap, rinse, soap, rinse...13:07
foobarrydo we have any coders in here looking for an exciting job?13:16
zmoylan-pii think the coders are down the pub drowning their sorrows over having to use ms software13:23
daftykinsnah they're busy building the latest applications from source because their distro's default repos have all broken software packaged :)13:23
dogmatic69Hi all, im looking for a way to send the keystroke F1 to a terminal session, but it seems like the window manager is catching it13:40
dogmatic69any ideas how I can force it to send?13:40
zmoylan-pitry an onscreen keyboard?13:41
foobarryare there any good subreddits for programmingjobs?13:42
dogmatic69one sec13:42
foobarryno MS software in this job13:42
dogmatic69zmoylan-pi: the onscreeen dont even have function keys13:43
dogmatic69doubt it would work anyway, I think it is the window manager catching for help screens. most apps have F1 for help13:43
diddledandogmatic69: first result on google: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/53581/sending-function-keys-f1-f12-over-ssh13:45
dogmatic69"Another way to see the escape sequence for a function key is to press Ctrl+V in a terminal application that doesn't rebind the Ctrl+V key (such as the shell). Ctrl+V inserts the next character (which will be the escape character) literally, and you'll be able to see the rest of the sequence, which consists of ordinary characters."13:46
dogmatic69try that, and hit F1.. nothing happens13:46
dogmatic69ctrl+v -> F1 ... nothing13:47
diddledanthat isn't what it tells you13:47
diddledanF1 == ^[OP13:47
foobarrygoogle drive is dreadful20:04
foobarryimpossible to navigate folders with any persistence20:05
zmoylan-pii use dropbox... i wouldn't use it for anything secure mind20:05
foobarrythis is a work collaboration between different institutions20:06
foobarryno choice20:06
foobarrycannot see contents of folders easily at all20:06
daftykinsi've seen Google Drive fall over and be unreliable, too20:06
daftykinsno idea what you mean is happening though20:06
SuperMattI'm all about the OwnCloud20:08
foobarrywhen documents are in nested folders, navigating those foldesr is really cludgy20:08
foobarryand opening docs and navigating them is too20:09
foobarryit was ages before i realised there were folders full of files20:09
foobarrymaybe i need that insync client20:09
daftykinson a clients Windows 7 system, i tried moving his Documents folder into the Google Drive root so that it'd keep them backed up - problem? it breaks indexing so search no longer works within it - and the client regularly crashed a couple of years back, generally pretty terrible20:10
zmoylan-piooooh, shiny.... http://kde.slimbook.es/20:14
