00:00:01  <Gonozal_VIII> numpad in the middle of the letters? that sucks...
00:01:05  <Gonozal_VIII> but i guess seperate doesn't work with less then 17"...
00:01:18  <Eddi|zuHause3> laptop keyboards used that trick to save space
00:01:29  <egladil> never use the numpad on laptops anyway
00:02:39  <ln-> do you have the latest generation iBook G4?

00:08:06  <Sacro> ln-: you know... i was
00:15:43  <ln-> bug almost fixed
00:18:57  <SmatZ> ln-: what bug were you talking about?
00:19:17  <ln-> right scroll
00:19:20  <SmatZ> [00:32:33] <ln-> try to scroll the map quickly with right-mouse down, release button only after the cursor is outside OTTD window.
00:19:21  <SmatZ> ah
00:20:05  <SmatZ> when I go out of the OTTD window while holding button and then return back, my cursor disappears...
00:21:31  <ln-> bug fixed
00:25:16  <ln-> egladil:
00:32:33  <Zuu> SmatZ: That one is quite old, and was SDL related on linux if I'm not wrong.
00:36:41  <Zuu> But if I'm not wrong that is not a real issue with relative input devices?
00:37:10  <Zuu> As the cursor position don't move when you scroll.
00:37:15  <Eddi|zuHause3> something was funny recently, when you scroll, and alt+tab out of the window, and then go back, you scroll without holding the mouse button

00:44:48  <ln-> let's all read the interesting paper by Tron:
00:45:18  <SmatZ> Zuu: I don't know
00:45:57  <Zuu> Not easy to know everyting when so MUCH is happening in the ottd world :)
00:47:03  <SmatZ> :)
00:48:19  <Zuu> Beeing the one who submitted that bug it is quite easy to remember it.. :p
00:48:23  <Zuu>
00:49:02  <ln-> Beeing = attacking someone with an army of bees?
00:49:12  <SmatZ> :-D
00:49:14  <Sacro> hehehe
00:49:17  <Zuu> being, better?
00:49:18  <SmatZ> no wonder you remember it :)
00:49:23  <Sacro> my chinese housemate thought that walking the dog == dogging
00:49:24  <Sacro> XD
00:50:42  <Belugas> ln-, what is it about?  i can't read german, but it sound interesting to me
00:50:54  <SmatZ> :-D

00:53:24  <Zuu> Sacro: As always it is those who are less familar with a langage that creates new facinating combinations. :p
00:53:35  <Sacro> Zuu: well, yes
00:53:37  *** ludde [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:53:44  <Sacro> she was most embarresed when i told her what dogging is
00:54:30  <Gonozal_VIII> <-- too stupid to understand it but it seems to be an algorithm that is trying to avoid wrong guesses when you pipeline stuff through the cpu
00:54:53  <ln-> Belugas: something like "If conversion from SSAs".
00:55:46  <Eddi|zuHause3> he wants to reduce the conditional branches when converting SSA into code
00:56:21  <Eddi|zuHause3> because the less branches you have, the less the branch prediction can fail
00:56:42  <Eddi|zuHause3> and taking wrong branch always is a loss of pipeline
00:57:47  <ln-> has he written that much text just for fun, or is "Studienarbeit" something like a bachelor's thesis?
00:58:05  <Gonozal_VIII> master :-)
00:58:31  <Eddi|zuHause3> it is definitely some requirement for his studies, but i don't think he is studying for bachelor/master
00:58:33  <Belugas> i think the latter will be more exact
00:59:04  <Eddi|zuHause3> more probably he is studying for "diplom", where this thing would be a prerequisite for starting his diploma-thesis
00:59:59  <Eddi|zuHause3> "Diplom" would be loosely comparable to "Master"
01:00:38  <Gonozal_VIII> they want to start bachelor/master system here in the next years
01:00:39  <ln-> this sounds funny: "Prof. em. Dr. Dr. h.c. Gerhard Goos"
01:01:32  <Gonozal_VIII> here = my university
01:01:47  <Eddi|zuHause3> they started last year here, i think
01:02:04  <Eddi|zuHause3> but tron already studies a tiny bit longer than that ;)
01:03:14  *** Sionide- [] has joined #openttd
01:03:15  <Zuu> soon I have to choose if I want to get the old exam that is also called Master or if I want to get the bolonga-master or there was a third possibility I don't remember...
01:03:33  <Eddi|zuHause3> a paper like this is usually directly followed by the diploma-thesis, which is another 6 month to finish studying
01:04:20  <Eddi|zuHause3> here, everyone would recommend you to study after the old scheme, if you have the choice
01:04:45  * Sacro scratches
01:04:47  *** MiHaMeK [] has joined #openttd
01:05:17  <Eddi|zuHause3> it is even questionable if the newly introduced bachelor even fulfils the bologna criteries
01:05:30  <Zuu> okay. I mostly have heard from people that they want to go the old way to get out a half year earlier (after 4.5 instead of 5 years) so that they can start to work earlier.
01:05:34  <Belugas> i know he is studying on computer sciences (obviously), that he has achieved quite a degree so far, but i do know know the exact level he reached
01:05:34  <ln-> the first time i see Dr. twice in front of someone's name
01:05:34  <Belugas> thanks Eddi|zuHause3

01:10:31  <Eddi|zuHause3> a couple of google results: "Prof. Prof. Prof. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. (wenn man den Buchumschlag glauben soll) Guido Knopp"
01:10:32  <Sacro> diploma?

01:10:55  <Eddi|zuHause3> "Prof. Prof. Prof. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. rer. nat. phil. med. vet. hc Dipl. Betriebswirt Dipl. Psych. Dipl. Ing. Adolf Samuel Rothschild"

01:11:06  <Sacro> you can't call a child Adolf
01:11:27  <ln-> Sacro: obviously mr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. Dr. is not a child.
01:11:32  <Eddi|zuHause3> i assume he was born between 1933 and 1945
01:11:48  <Zuu> My gosh, that's just wierd amount of titles... compared to the situation here where you say 'you' to almost anyone.
01:12:30  <Gonozal_VIII> but they would be offended if you forget one of the dr.

01:14:41  <Eddi|zuHause3> yeah, the name could be jewish
01:15:02  <Eddi|zuHause3> but also jews were born in that period :p
01:15:17  <Gonozal_VIII> but named adolf?^^
01:15:52  <Eddi|zuHause3> well, i do neither know this person nor this person's parents nor this person's parents' reasoning behind the naming
01:17:06  <Eddi|zuHause3> but if he was born in that period, he would be between 62 and 74 now
01:17:29  <Gonozal_VIII> can't be much younger with that many titles

01:19:14  <ln-> i live in a country where getting a doctoral degree requires at least a few years of post-graduate research.
01:19:29  <ln-> in practise.
01:20:14  <Eddi|zuHause3> well, especially in medical studies, they have an accelerated doctor degree
01:20:43  <Eddi|zuHause3> because people don't go to a doctor that is not a doctor
01:20:57  <Eddi|zuHause3> so they make the doctor degree for the name plate
01:21:09  <ln-> great
01:21:15  <ln-> what's the degree below that?
01:21:48  <ln-> Lizenziat?
01:21:52  <Eddi|zuHause3> "dipl. med." allows you to be medical practitioner
01:23:17  <ln-> "Lizenziat der Medizin" over here, as far as the term Lizenziat is translatable.
01:23:43  <Eddi|zuHause3> "Diplom" is the usual finish of studying
01:24:05  <Eddi|zuHause3> "Doktor" is typically a 2-4 year advanced study after that
01:24:52  *** Zuu [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
01:25:03  <ln-> "Magister" (i.e. master) is the usual finish here.
01:25:11  <Eddi|zuHause3> that time depends mainly on how much teaching you have to do in that period as well
01:25:33  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:26:58  <ln-> but in medicine and dentistry people do not (and cannot) graduate as masters, but instead they graduate directly to Lizenziat, which is somewhat higher degree.

03:03:13  <Gonozal_VIII> a train with 180 takes the same curve with 180 3times and then the 4th time it slows down to 160
03:03:38  <Gonozal_VIII> how is that possible?

15:00:20  <PinguTux> hi guys! i have written a patch that brings back the selection of different screen resolutions on mac
15:00:24  <Gonozal_VIII> stupid 12h radio clock... i just woke up and thought it was 4am on monday and i slept through the whole sunday instead of some hours
15:00:28  <PinguTux>
15:00:47  <Tefad> Gonozal_VIII: so fix your clock?
15:00:57  <Tefad> i use my mobile for timekeeping
15:01:00  <PinguTux> anyone interested?
15:01:04  <Tefad> it's quite accurate, auto-syncs too.
15:01:23  <Tefad> reboots for unknown reasons sometimes though . ..
15:04:01  <Gonozal_VIII> my laptop clock is synced and shows 24h time but the laptop was off and i my radio clock should show a little red dot when it's pm but there was a power outage some days ago and i set it 12 hours wrong...

17:17:06  <Bjarni> I think I know something that even beats German synchronisation
17:17:21  <Gonozal_VIII> what?
17:17:59  <Bjarni> Swedish children TV broadcasted in Denmark... it's not like Swedish is that hard to understand but they still add Danish talk to it
17:18:02  <Bjarni> but...
17:18:16  <Bjarni> they use a single woman for it so everybody gets the same voice
17:18:23  <Gonozal_VIII> hehehe
17:18:44  <Bjarni> then she tells who says what and that results in longer lines so she talks over sound fxs and stuff
17:18:50  <Bjarni> and leaves stuff out due to lack of time
17:19:03  <Bjarni> they didn't remove the Swedish talk either
17:19:20  <Bjarni> I don't think you can get much lower than that
17:19:30  <Gonozal_VIII> good for the children, they learn to filter information :-)

17:25:27  <Bjarni> but luckily the politicians says that they can't just get more money from the viewers because they fuck up their economy by poor management and they still demand the same quality of TV. There is an interesting future for the TV in Denmark

17:28:47  <dihedral> no - it's a lot politer now
17:28:59  <dihedral> just nobody will pay attention to it :-P

17:32:45  <HerzogDeXtEr> okay Bjarni :D it just was a joke...
17:32:54  <Rotonen> but by talking here you make all the routers inbetween draw more power and hence warm the globe more!

17:33:52  <Prof_Frink> YouTube's alright, non-youtube flash places less
17:33:54  <Prof_Frink> so
17:34:10  <Rotonen> although there are some really solid flash animations around there
17:34:22  <Rotonen> mostly the scene died at around 2003
17:34:29  <Bjarni> Rotonen: well... if you consider the rooter heating to be a major concern compared to say the merchant navy then I would like to see your reasons for thinking so
17:34:37  <Prof_Frink> 'caue I *know* youtube links have to be opened in fx rather than konqui, whereas with $videositeoftheday I don't
17:35:08  <fjb> Flash has one security hole after the other. I don't understand why people are always using flash. Especially for movies there are many better formats.
17:35:11  <Rotonen> Bjarni: just the direct link between power consumption and electricity production
17:35:25  <Rotonen> although there are renewal sources, non-carbon sources
17:35:33  <Rotonen> and not really going into that discussion :)
17:35:54  <Rotonen> fjb: well for animations it is a good format
17:35:57  <dihedral> Rotonen: sinse when is a network packet cpu intense? :-P
17:36:23  <Bjarni> besides... are you sure that routers use more power when really active. Remember that the LED turns off for a really short time when transferring. Can you prove that the less power to the LED is less than the extra spent on handling the package?
17:36:27  <Rotonen> dihedral: if the network hardware is decent, it won't go through the cpu of it at all
17:37:02  <Rotonen> Bjarni: i can prove more throughput of same type equals more power required
17:37:03  <dihedral> Rotonen: does that not depend on the router setup?
17:37:13  <Rotonen> yes, pretty much
17:37:33  <Rotonen> but i'm just fairly certain that talking here consumers more power around the world than idling here
17:37:39  <fjb> Hm, many modern network chips use a MIPS core...

17:38:00  <dihedral> wait Sacro i'll join you

17:38:18  <dihedral> LOL
17:38:20  <Sacro> actually, we got told at uni to use UK servers rather than Europe/Asian/US ones
17:38:21  * Prof_Frink plugs Sacro into the electric
17:38:24  <fjb> I have a cheap network card, that has more CPU power than my older PCs.
17:38:31  <Sacro> as it saves electric and lowers our carbon footprint
17:38:38  <Prof_Frink> Sacro: That's to save on long-dista
17:38:44  <Prof_Frink> nce call charges
17:38:58  <dihedral> just iptables does not run in the network chip
17:39:03  <Prof_Frink> Where are these enter characters coming from?
17:39:07  <Rotonen> Sacro: i think the real cause is indeed to save on upload traffic
17:39:24  <fjb> iptables? What crap is that? :-)
17:39:42  <Bjarni> at uni we have the servers on the intranet. It saves bandwidth
17:39:54  <Bjarni> and it also saves time when somebody decides to send a huge file

17:45:41  <Bjarni> anyway I don't think it's a huge concern that packages for IRC should create global warming due to extra load on the routers as I'm pretty sure the routers will not really be able to tell the difference
17:47:03  <Bjarni> Rotonen: if you want to do something good for the environment then stop farting and burping. Methane gas in farts and burps hurts the atmosphere more than CO2
17:47:25  <Prof_Frink> Rotonen: Or, light your own farts.
17:47:33  <Bjarni> you should also stop breathing because you exhale CO2
17:47:52  <Rotonen> in the spirit of the previous conversation in total: your argumentation is far too thorough and well versed
17:47:59  <Bjarni> basically you should stop living but you shouldn't die either because it's also bad to rot
17:48:03  <Bjarni> or burn
17:48:26  <Rotonen> diving into the sun would probably be the best
17:48:41  <Rotonen> more hydrogen for the star to burn and prolong our system

17:52:16  <Gonozal_VIII> [18:50:11] Rotonen: the most ridiculous thing is that the could actually build one in the near future <-- a solar powered rocket? how should that work?
17:52:17  <SpComb> I wonder how much gravity talking on IRC uses up
17:52:27  <SpComb> I guess it depends on the altitude difference between the participants
17:52:56  <Bjarni>  <SpComb> I wonder how much gravity talking on IRC uses up <-- it depends on the font size
17:53:06  <Prof_Frink> SpComb: So /that/'s why patchbloke left us

17:54:20  <SpComb> Bjarni:
17:54:45  <SpComb> perhaps I should note at this point that it's kind of hard to read text with this font size

18:03:39  <Bjarni> the deadline for oil is much shorter but we can always just revert to coal

18:05:10  <Gonozal_VIII> setting free all the carbon that has been stored for millions of years won't destroy the earth but it will cause changes... we will have to adapt to that changes and that will cost us money... the trick is to predict those costs and balance them with the investment in alternate energy sources

18:07:24  <Bjarni> <fjb> Bjarni: Should the people in DK not slowly start to develop submarine houses? <-- actually the ground below Denmark was under a lot of pressure from the ice 10k years ago.

18:12:48  <Gonozal_VIII> but throwing train engines over huge distances wastes lots of gravity!

18:15:01  <Gonozal_VIII> i've already chained myself to the floor so i won't float away :-)
18:15:07  <Bjarni> but seriously... if the global temperature raises then some ice will melt but hotter air will be able to contain more water. It's still an open question if the result of this will be raising or lowering sea levels
18:15:32  <Bjarni> besides melting floating ice will not make the water level rise
18:16:00  <fjb> But there is much ice on the land.
18:16:04  <Gonozal_VIII> as i said... it won't destroy the earth or kill millions of people and so on but it will change some things and that will cause costs
18:16:44  *** DJ_Mirage [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:16:46  <Bjarni> <fjb> But there is much ice on the land. <--- there is lot's of ocean to fill up. Imagine how much water it takes to raise the Pacific 1 cm
18:17:08  <Bjarni> and if you increase the temperature enough to melt so much ice then the air will contain more water
18:17:42  <Gonozal_VIII> somewhere i read that the greenland ice would be 5m for global sea level... i don't know how well calculated that was
18:17:49  <fjb> The bigger problem is the raising temperature in the mountains.
18:18:22  <Rotonen> yes, that leaves a lot of people without water
18:19:18  <Bjarni> <Gonozal_VIII> somewhere i read that the greenland ice would be 5m for global sea level... i don't know how well calculated that was <-- Greenland is big but still...
18:19:41  <Bjarni> besides it's unlikely that all of it will melt in the near future
18:20:36  <Bjarni> it has been there for ages and it tells us the story of the planet's temperatures and what was in the air
18:20:37  <Gonozal_VIII> they didn't fear that it all melts but that it breaks apart and slides into the ocean
18:20:39  <Rotonen> well the problem is the water acting as a lubricant and sliding it all fairly rapidly into the ocean
18:21:20  *** Aerandir [] has joined #openttd
18:21:30  <Bjarni> drilling in the ice in Greenland has told us that the temperature has dropped noteworthy compared to 1000 years ago
18:21:51  <Bjarni> while it was much colder 400 years ago than it is today
18:22:33  <Bjarni> it also tells us that around 1880 the temperature dropped rapidly (most likely due to the eruption of Krakatora)
18:23:09  <Bjarni> while it was much colder than usual the scientists started to measure temperature and when the planet recovered the scientists noticed an increase in temperature (go figure)
18:23:10  <Rotonen> the temperature is not high, yes, but the rate at which it is rising, is new
18:23:50  <Bjarni> <Rotonen> the temperature is not high, yes, but the rate at which it is rising, is new <-- are you sure? It looks like it will just continue to rise at the same speed as it did the last 100 years
18:24:29  <Rotonen> have you actually taken a look at the raw data yourself?
18:24:36  <Bjarni> that is if you look at scientific evidence rather than what Al Gore pulls out of his hat (with no evidence or theory to support it)
18:25:09  <Bjarni> ALL scientists agreeds that there are nothing to support what Al Gore talks about
18:25:27  <Rotonen> well not all :)
18:25:36  <Bjarni> well... he might pay a few to do so but nobody that aren't paid by him
18:25:37  <Rotonen> but a healthy majority of oil funded ones, yes
18:25:58  <Rotonen> and no, not going to find a non-affiliated one soon
18:27:34  <Bjarni> 30 years ago the scientists claimed that we were heading for a new ice age
18:27:40  <Bjarni> now we will drown
18:27:48  <Bjarni> and boil
18:27:54  *** Wezz6400 [] has quit [Quit: brb]
18:27:57  <Bjarni> I wonder what they will say in 30 years
18:30:24  <Gonozal_VIII> if the water rises, they will build higher dikes, if there will be less water available to drink, they will pay more for it, if it gets colder they will spend more on heating... nothing we can't adapt to... but we have to calculate if it's cheaper to change behaviour now or to adapt to a changing environment
18:30:30  <Bjarni> but the theory about CO2 is a good one for politicians. "black smoke is bad" and they can measure it and put taxes on it
18:30:38  <Bjarni> so they appear green to the voters
18:31:40  *** thgergo [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
18:31:49  <Bjarni> so the theory of CO2 turned into a political case without real scientific proof
18:33:24  <Bjarni> and now it turned into a case where "it's common knowledge" that global warming is caused by CO2 so the fact that the sun is hyper active and more active than ever recorded before is discarded as a reason for global warming
18:34:11  <Rotonen> well the increase WAS measured.. :)
18:34:29  <Rotonen> just that it's in the wrong order of magnitude to be the culprit
18:35:14  <Bjarni> but nobody can tell that the impact of CO2 has the right order of magnitude
18:36:06  <Rotonen> it's the only known factor so far which has an impact, so it's easy to blame
18:37:08  *** DJMirage [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:37:12  <Bjarni> actually the original theory about CO2 is disproven because it tells that a certain layer in the atmosphere should keep the heat. That layer is actually cooling down
18:38:01  <Gonozal_VIII> reflect, not keep :-)
18:38:20  *** DJMirage [] has joined #openttd
18:38:28  <Bjarni> there is no question that we should take care of the environment but.... there is no scientific evidence that whatever the politicians comes up with will have an effect

18:39:51  *** Greyscale [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:40:03  <Bjarni> like the concept of cleaning the smoke from a coal powered powerplant for CO2 and putting it in tanks. We know that it can be done by testing it but we know that it takes 30% of the produced power to do so and then what to do with the stored CO2... the idea is to pump it into the ground and pray that it will stay there
18:40:46  <Bjarni> personally I consider a project like that a waste of money and resources compared to what else we could have done with the same resources
18:40:51  <Gonozal_VIII> that's stupid^^
18:41:08  <Bjarni> also it will not remove everything from the smoke... I think it was like 85% of the CO2 or something like that
18:42:41  <SERVEPRO> all the people in siberia welcome global warming
18:42:50  <Bjarni> we can stop all the powerplants in the country and it wouldn't matter because other countries wouldn't do so
18:43:37  <Bjarni> and can you imagine China who is building coal powered powerplants right now would welcome an expense they can't pay and an output reduction of 30% for something as CO2 reduction?
18:44:02  <Rotonen> SERVEPRO: well it makes the terrain unpassable when it melts.. :)
18:44:03  <Bjarni> in reality we have less options than we have in theory
18:44:24  <Sacro> ooh, VS2008
18:45:27  <Bjarni> yeah... in the arctic regions they prefer below 0°C temperatures because otherwise everything will melt and their buildings will be submerged into the mud
18:45:46  <SERVEPRO> haha interesting i didn't know that
18:45:51  <Gonozal_VIII> storing co2 as a gas won't work... you could only try to store it with burrying plants or something like that...
18:45:56  <SERVEPRO> but you are right, china will burn all the coal
18:46:13  <SERVEPRO> and all the oil they can buy
18:46:39  <Bjarni> not to mention that snow below... -28°C (I think) will not melt when hitting stuff so it's not wet like we know snow and it will not join together in big piles like the snow we know
18:47:07  <Bjarni> it's like sugar or something... only small "grains" that will not stick together and is easy to move around
18:47:43  <SERVEPRO> usually snow around here freezes together into chunks like big rocks
18:47:56  <Rotonen> afaik -32 in some sane humidity, but still there's variation
18:47:59  <Bjarni> <SERVEPRO> but you are right, china will burn all the coal <-- what we could do would be to help China to increase power output by say 10% (would still be less efficient than our power plants) without using more coal
18:48:08  <Rotonen> how the crystals have formed, what is the humidity
18:48:42  <SERVEPRO> that will be helpful, but aren't they still going to burn the coal until it is all gone
18:49:06  <Bjarni>  <SERVEPRO> usually snow around here freezes together into chunks like big rocks <-- no that's not the snow, that's snow that melts for a sec and then freezes as ice. If you prevent it from melting for a sec then the "glue" is gone
18:49:16  <SERVEPRO> i dont know frankly, i just dont see them moving to solar or something even if we do
18:49:27  <Bjarni> snow itself will not pack together in big balls
18:49:39  <SERVEPRO> hmmm, cool
18:49:41  <Bjarni> you can't make snowballs with really cold snow either
18:49:47  <SERVEPRO> awwwh =(
18:50:04  <Rotonen> well you can't really make snowballs when it's more than -5 celcius anyway
18:50:09  <Bjarni> that would be like taking some sugar and presume to make a ball out of it

18:51:22  <Gonozal_VIII> ok, technically it's not cold snow anymore then...
18:53:02  <Gonozal_VIII> we sometimes have -25° here but it doesn't snow when it's that cold...
18:54:51  <Rotonen> also making snowballs just wets your mittens and ruins the waterproof leathery ones

18:56:33  *** thgergo [] has joined #openttd
18:57:01  <SERVEPRO> it depends whether you are allowed to wear clothing in the snow fight or not
18:57:10  <Prof_Frink> Oh, if we're taking things seriously, you can't beat an AK47
18:57:29  <Gonozal_VIII> you don't want to make a snowfight when it takes some minutes of preparation to get a single ball to stick together anyways....
18:58:11  <Gonozal_VIII> you just throw some ice chunks then^^
18:59:14  <Rotonen> Prof_Frink: well the modern all-metal variants with superior sights might have a significant leverage in an average firefight
18:59:39  <Rotonen> the original had 2 faults: poor sights and the selector made a click

19:20:53  *** Lord_Dudelsack [] has joined #openttd
19:21:16  <Bjarni> btw I just remembered some facts about China and powerplants. They are building new powerplants (mainly coal powered) so they increase their power output by the power output of England every year
19:21:39  <Bjarni> they aren't very efficient (like 30% or something)
19:21:53  <Bjarni> a standard Siemens power plant has an efficiency of 38%
19:22:09  <Bjarni> we have the most efficient in the world (49%)
19:22:24  <Bjarni> and that's pure electricity
19:23:00  <Bjarni> we use the cooling water as a heating source so we actually use more than 90% of the energy in the coal
19:23:02  <Gonozal_VIII> is that with fuel cell technology or something?
19:23:34  <Bjarni> <Gonozal_VIII> is that with fuel cell technology or something? <-- fuel cells has an efficiency of around 25% as it is now and I'm talking about coal powered powerplants
19:24:00  <Bjarni> the trick is to use as high pressure as possible and they use somewhere around 300 atm
19:24:26  <Bjarni> so a single litre of steam is really full of energy
19:24:55  <Bjarni> also the burner is constantly tweaked for max efficiency (airflow and so on)

19:26:44  <Bjarni> But during the conversion of one form of energy to another, about 65% of the coal's energy is lost, says Weibel. <-- fits with the description of a Siemens standard powerplant that uses 38%
19:26:50  <Bjarni> (and that's a modern one)
19:27:38  <Gonozal_VIII> that's because it is the description of a modern coal powerplant
19:27:54  <Eddi|zuHause2> 38% is already a lot...
19:27:57  <Bjarni> but it's not as good as we can build them
19:28:46  <Bjarni> but Siemens will have to support and repair the plants after they are build and then they will not dare to push for really high efficiency like we do with our homemade powerplants
19:30:35  <Bjarni> I believe that the fuel cells has a future but it's in the future, not right now
19:31:25  <Eddi|zuHause2> any future has a path that leads there

20:01:50  <Bjarni> and is likely still under the engine when the picture was taken
20:01:54  <Prof_Frink> Ah, it /is/ that one
20:02:15  <Prof_Frink> That'll teach me to look at links before commenting on them.
20:02:17  <Knightmare> affecting all my savegames, tested without "slopes built on" and seems ok
20:02:17  <Gonozal_VIII> driver wasn't hurt?
20:02:25  <Bjarni>  <Prof_Frink> Bjarni: Why not the infamous "Shit!" poster? <--- most likely... it's used all over when it comes to train brake safety
20:02:51  * Prof_Frink points at his later commentary
20:02:55  <Bjarni>  <Gonozal_VIII> driver wasn't hurt? <-- the driver and the fireman jumped off onto the platform before the train derailed because they knew what would happen
20:03:06  <Rubidium> "The train, the quickest way to get into the city"
20:03:12  <Bjarni> hehe
20:03:14  <Gonozal_VIII> ^^
20:03:21  <Bjarni> this is the main station in the heart of Paris
20:03:50  <Prof_Frink> Maybe he was trying to go on the Undergroud
20:03:55  <Bjarni> they think it was due to ice in the brakepipe so when the locomotive started braking the wagons didn't
20:04:04  <Rubidium> oh, that's the reason why they have a "Gare du Nord" and a "Gare du Sud" now, that was the old main station ;)
20:04:32  <Knightmare> if anyone wants to grab my stuff
20:04:36  <Bjarni> I think this one is the northern one
20:04:55  <Knightmare> it's based on glasgow underground, but i added lots more lines :)
20:05:24  <Eddi|zuHause2> actually it's gare du nord and gare de l'est
20:05:25  <hylej> no screenshots?
20:05:40  *** hylej is now known as hylje
20:05:53  <Rubidium> well, with 0.003 MB/s it won't be very useful
20:06:23  <Knightmare> should be faster now
20:06:32  <Bjarni> closed your p2p client?
20:06:39  <Eddi|zuHause2> tuned down $filesharing_tool?
20:07:07  <Knightmare> yeah i was seeding suse 10.3, doh
20:07:24  <Knightmare>
20:07:28  <Knightmare> screenie
20:07:30  <Eddi|zuHause2> yeah, i'd have said that, too :p
20:07:49  <Bjarni> :D
20:08:15  <Eddi|zuHause2> urgs... 90° turns...
20:08:20  <Bjarni> when I decided to share the OTTD distributions I didn't have any bandwidth issues
20:09:03  <Eddi|zuHause2> wouldn't it make more sense to have the trains turn around in the station (dead end) instead?
20:09:19  <Knightmare> yeah, it has some poor design details
20:09:24  <Bjarni> Knightmare: this is totally unrelated to the bug report but... why is there catenary on the signal tile (in the middle)?
20:09:41  <hylje> Eddi|zuHause2: turning place
20:10:04  <Knightmare> think i put elrails instead of normal rails
20:10:31  <Knightmare> i was trying to electrify the system and failing
20:10:35  <Gonozal_VIII> i get that not reached thing too
20:11:19  <Bjarni> Gonozal_VIII: you are banned :P
20:11:38  <Knightmare> when (if) the game is loaded, there are lots of lines running that have no houses near to them.  I put the track down first
20:12:05  <Bjarni> I think somewhere in Austria there is a guy who got *!*@*.at banned
20:12:24  <Gonozal_VIII> ....
20:12:48  <Bjarni> stealth banning... it simply looks like you are trying to reach files that's not there
20:12:50  <Eddi|zuHause2> i once banned *
20:13:26  <Bjarni> I once banned *.uk and then Sacro started laughing because I missed him with his .com domain so I banned *.com too
20:13:30  <Bjarni> in here
20:13:39  <Bjarni> well
20:13:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> it wouldn't make much sense to ban sacro elsewhere :p
20:13:59  <Bjarni> but not for long
20:14:04  *** Desolator [Desolator@] has quit [Quit: Leaving FTW!]
20:14:09  <Prof_Frink> Why not just ban * and be done with it?
20:14:13  <Knightmare> a good thing would be train depots you can drive through, as the train depot can cause lots of train accidents
20:14:27  <SmatZ> I once banned *!*@* , so nobody could join, I was the master
20:14:28  <Bjarni>  <Eddi|zuHause2> it wouldn't make much sense to ban sacro elsewhere :p <-- actually it would make sense to ban him everywhere but that's besides the point
20:15:11  <Eddi|zuHause2> SmatZ: and that was in #i_am_the_master?
20:15:23  <Knightmare> ok, has everyone taken the files they need from me?  I dont want to leave http server going so long
20:15:24  <Gonozal_VIII> [21:14:13] Knightmare: a good thing would be train depots you can drive through <-- very new idea, nobody thought about that before ;-)
20:15:36  <SmatZ> Eddi|zuHause2: no, there is Bjarni master
20:15:51  <Knightmare> heh, well, i add +1 vote for it ;)
20:16:10  <Prof_Frink> SmatZ: Unfortunately The Master was defeated by The Doctor
20:16:25  <SmatZ> :-p
20:16:25  <Knightmare> i need to code the car hoist GRF for that scenario before < 1970
20:16:28  <Eddi|zuHause2> Doctor Who?
20:16:37  <Prof_Frink> Badum
20:16:38  <SmatZ> Prof_Frink: I don't know that one :(
20:16:45  <Prof_Frink> (tish)
20:17:10  <SmatZ> #i_am_the_master - yes, I am :)
20:17:28  <Bjarni> damn right now I forgot his name but our wiki maintainer once managed to ban himself from the wiki so he couldn't log on and unban himself. He wanted to test it and banned himself for 5 minutes. After 5 hours he declared that he needed help as he was still banned
20:17:54  <Bjarni> --- Cannot join #i_am_the_master (You are banned).
20:17:57  <SmatZ> Bjarni: yes, I am the master
20:18:12  <Eddi|zuHause2> it's a real shame they do not broadcast Doctor Who here...
20:18:28  <Eddi|zuHause2> the channel bought the rights...
20:18:33  <Prof_Frink> Eddi|zuHause2: The latest series was pretty shit
20:18:38  <Prof_Frink> Except for one episode
20:18:52  <Eddi|zuHause2> and always announces it for the next spring/summer/autumn/winter
20:18:59  <Eddi|zuHause2> but never actually show it
20:19:10  <Prof_Frink> Eddi|zuHause2: Don't blink.
20:19:31  <Prof_Frink> DOn't turn your back, don't look away, and whatever you do, don't blink!
20:19:35  <SmatZ> Bjarni: how did he solve that ban?
20:19:48  <Eddi|zuHause2> format c:
20:20:03  <Bjarni> <SmatZ> Bjarni: how did he solve that ban? <-- server admin had to unban him
20:20:24  <Gonozal_VIII> what if server admin bans himself?^^
20:20:26  <Rubidium> Knightmare: the issue should be solved now
20:20:29  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r11525 /trunk/src/ (openttd.cpp town.h town_cmd.cpp):
20:20:29  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: -Fix: do not do all kinds of 'updates' for town, waypoint, station and other
20:20:29  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: signs when you haven't converted the map to the 'current' format as that means
20:20:29  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: you are going to read data in the 'old' format when you assume that it is in the
20:20:29  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: 'current' format.
20:20:29  <SmatZ> I wonder what would happen if the server admin would have banned himself
20:20:58  <Knightmare> for anyone interested in the glasgow pics
20:21:05  <Prof_Frink> SmatZ: DB hackery probably
20:22:08  <Gonozal_VIII> so low O_o
20:22:22  <Bjarni> Knightmare: seen this one?
20:22:37  <Gonozal_VIII> how do large people fit in there?
20:23:30  <SmatZ> scary
20:23:36  <Bjarni> they are passengers not people
20:23:49  <Gonozal_VIII> passengers aren't people?
20:23:50  <Ammlller> possible that a client could desync because of different OS?
20:23:57  <hylje> abandoned rails ftw
20:24:29  <Ammlller> only windows clients are connected all the time, other desync after 1min
20:24:30  <Knightmare> clockwork orange is a crazy undergorund
20:24:41  <Knightmare> i use it only occasionaly
20:24:43  <Bjarni>  <Ammlller> possible that a client could desync because of different OS? <-- it's more likely that a client can desync due to a different endianess
20:24:45  <Gonozal_VIII> people is the superclass of passengers :-)
20:25:10  <SmatZ> Ammlller: and the server runs on windows?
20:25:15  <Bjarni> there is nothing super about passengers
20:25:27  <Ammlller> server runs on linux
20:25:30  <Bjarni> this is Glasgow, remember?
20:25:39  <Gonozal_VIII> i didn't say that, people are super ;-)
20:25:39  <Ammlller> wait, I have something to check
20:25:41  <Bjarni> Ammlller: x86?
20:25:45  <Knightmare> Bjarni: i hadnt seen that, no. Looks good tho
20:26:04  <hylje> there's not only one but two underground incomplete metro stations here in helsinki
20:26:55  <Bjarni> Knightmare: here is the page that I was actually trying to find... this guy makes his way passed the gate and into the platform
20:27:00  <Bjarni> there is a forest down there
20:27:14  <Bjarni> the botanic garden station has changed into a forest :D
20:27:36  <hylje> why was that line abandoned?
20:27:39  <Eddi|zuHause2> <Gonozal_VIII> passengers aren't people? <- soylent green is people
20:27:46  <Knightmare> if they build second circle for 2014 i will need to update this map :D
20:28:01  <Gonozal_VIII> hehehe
20:28:46  <Bjarni> I think it was wrong to close the line with the botanic garden (can't remember the line name). It would be nice to have it today
20:28:49  <Ammlller> does it hurt, if a server is not compiled with --enable-dedicated?
20:29:01  <Knightmare> you could ammend my map to add it ;)
20:29:02  <Gonozal_VIII> it's wrong to close any line
20:29:04  <Bjarni> but the tunnels are still there... they could just go down there and lay new tracks
20:29:22  <Bjarni> after they used chainsaws to cut the forest away
20:29:24  <Ammlller> it does "only" use more cpu usage, or is there something else?
20:29:45  <hylje> Bjarni: suppose they would need to clean up the base too
20:29:58  <hylje> Bjarni: but semi-vegetated platforms would be kewl
20:30:03  <Bjarni> that is part of the track laying part
20:30:25  <hylje> i thought getting rid of trees is also a part of that
20:31:21  <Bjarni> just take a big locomotive and you solve that part
20:32:23  <Eddi|zuHause2> Ammlller: it does not do anything more, you just need more dependencies and get a bigger binary
20:32:54  <Bjarni> yeah
20:33:03  <Bjarni> the bigger binary is a huge issue
20:33:30  <Knightmare> for the second line
20:33:34  <Gonozal_VIII> yes.. hard to fit it on a dvd that way...
20:34:02  <hylje> Bjarni: one needs to build the rails before running some locos on it
20:34:18  <Bjarni> that depends
20:34:40  <Bjarni> if you reach the end of the tracks with high enough speed then you clear the forest in front of the track
20:34:51  <Knightmare> do i need to do anything else with this bug, and where should i be reporting it..?
20:35:21  <Gonozal_VIII> you need a track laying train that has wheels in the front part :-)
20:38:00  <Bjarni> hylje posted a link that shows that you are demanding too much
20:39:35  *** Purno [] has joined #openttd
20:40:52  <Bjarni> <-- as you can see the need for tracks is highly overrated
20:42:15  <Gonozal_VIII> yes... you'll get rid of the trees that way.. but then you have a huge chunk of metal lying around there instead
20:42:25  <Knightmare> ah
20:42:35  <dihedral> Bjarni: correct me if i am wrong, but amd and ppc use same endianness?
20:42:35  <SmatZ> Bjarni: what is that?
20:42:40  <Knightmare> maybe i should scale down my metro efforts :D
20:42:41  <Bjarni> a GG1
20:42:43  <SmatZ> some poor, dead train
20:43:16  <Bjarni> PRR 4876 in 1953 in Washington DC
20:43:43  <Bjarni> <SmatZ> some poor, dead train <-- it survived and wasn't withdrawn until 1984
20:43:48  <dihedral> Bjarni: that was with regard to desyncs on the mz games
20:44:18  <Bjarni> <dihedral> Bjarni: correct me if i am wrong, but amd and ppc use same endianness? <-- PPC is big endian and AMD is little endian
20:44:37  <SmatZ> dihedral: interesting... I though ppc uses BE and x86/amd64 LE, but it seems ppc can switch to LE too
20:44:38  <dihedral> Mucht has AMD 64 X2
20:44:44  <SmatZ> Bjarni: :)
20:44:53  <dihedral> Osai has G5
20:44:55  <dihedral> i have G4
20:45:04  <Bjarni> all PPC are big endian
20:45:14  <dihedral> all AMD i take it are be
20:45:30  <Bjarni> except the 400 series that has a little endian mode so the software controls what endianess they have
20:45:39  <SmatZ> Bjarni: maybe wiki is wrong - "Most PowerPC chips switch endianness via a bit in the MSR (Machine State Register), with a second bit provided to allow the OS to run with a different endianness"
20:45:42  <Bjarni> Apple used the 600, 700 and 900 series
20:45:46  <dihedral> ok - but the AMD64 X2
20:46:03  <Bjarni> SmatZ: what wiki?
20:46:05  <Bjarni> where?
20:46:10  <SmatZ>
20:46:47  <Bjarni> well
20:46:58  <dihedral> Bjarni: i was in the game with an AMD XP 2400+ and the PPC G4
20:47:09  <dihedral> and i did not desync with my amd
20:47:15  <dihedral> Mucht desynced though with his
20:47:25  <Bjarni> anyway whenever an Apple OS runs on a PPC it runs in big endian mode
20:47:25  <Mucht> at the same time as Osai...
20:47:36  <dihedral> yes
20:47:40  <dihedral> all was at the same time
20:47:43  <dihedral> watching the same town
20:47:50  <SmatZ> Bjarni: most likely
20:48:24  <Bjarni> G3 and G4 use reading in reversed byte order or switch endianess in hardware rather than software. It's a bit slower than normal read but it's way faster than software conversion
20:48:26  <dihedral> Bjarni: should i not have desynced then with my amd?
20:48:36  <Bjarni> for some reason this feature is not available in G5...
20:48:45  <dihedral> oh
20:48:50  <dihedral> wow
20:49:09  <Bjarni> but then again G5 has a lot of other cool features
20:49:18  <Bjarni> like two ALUs
20:49:37  <dihedral> but then it got too warm to be put into the powerbooks :-P
20:49:39  <Bjarni> an endian conversion isn't a big issue in OpenTTD anyway
20:49:55  <ln-> bigger than it should be
20:49:58  <dihedral> then why would *nix based os's desync
20:50:00  <dihedral> and win not
20:50:21  <Bjarni> I mean it's not done in the game, only when loading/saving and other times when time isn't a real issue
20:51:14  <Bjarni> dihedral: here is the rule for endian related desyncs: if there is an endian issue then big endian and little endian will do something different with the same input
20:51:28  <Bjarni> since they do something different then somebody will desync
20:51:38  <dihedral> makes sense
20:51:40  <Bjarni> and that will be everybody doing something that the server didn't do
20:51:47  <dihedral> yes
20:51:53  <dihedral> sure
20:52:07  <dihedral> but if you say that osx runs in BE mode on a G4
20:52:14  <Bjarni> so basically the computers that desyncs will be the computers that use a different endianess than the server
20:52:14  <dihedral> and amd is BE
20:52:26  <Bjarni> G4 is BE
20:52:30  <Bjarni> AMD is LE
20:52:54  <dihedral> sorry - my bad
20:52:58  <Bjarni> AMD is designed to execute windows and windows is hardcoded LE
20:53:12  <Bjarni> OSX for PPC is hardcoded BE
20:53:12  <dihedral> and linux on AMD
20:53:26  <Bjarni> OSX for intel macs is hardcoded LE
20:54:08  <Bjarni> because of that you will find a few (one?) ifdef in the OSX specific files depending on endianess
20:54:10  <ln-> dihedral: where the hell did you get the idea that AMD is BE?
20:54:28  <dihedral> yes ok, so both the g4 and g5 desynced
20:54:33  <Bjarni> basically it's #ifdef big ending then set big endian flag in sound driver
20:54:35  <dihedral> but out of 2 amd's only one desynced
20:54:59  <Bjarni> <dihedral> but out of 2 amd's only one desynced <-- this clearly showed that it's not an endian issue
20:55:24  <dihedral> so - how could one find out what _is_ the issue?
20:56:49  <dihedral> unless of course there were an endianess diff in amx64 x2 and amd xp 2400
20:58:57  <ln-> there is no endianness difference between amds.
20:59:27  <SmatZ> maybe some newgrf problem, like InteractiveRandom() used where Random() should be used, or rendering affecting some newgrf register that is then used to switch to Random() etc...
20:59:47  <SmatZ> I saw a lot of desyncs while new industry was built, but that was probably fixed
20:59:54  <Knightmare> well i am going to shoot
21:00:05  <Knightmare> thanks for your patience tonight guys ;)
21:00:51  *** Knightmare [] has quit []
21:02:52  <dihedral> Bjarni - SmatZ : is there anything i could do to find out?
21:03:26  <Bjarni>  <dihedral> so - how could one find out what _is_ the issue? <--- sometimes it's easier to rule out what it's not
21:04:28  <Bjarni> <dihedral> Bjarni - SmatZ : is there anything i could do to find out? <--- I know a way but you are not going to like it
21:04:46  <dihedral> i am curious now
21:04:47  <Bjarni> find a savegame that will desync for sure
21:04:54  *** NarkSlap [] has joined #openttd
21:05:03  <dihedral> we have a save that will desync for sure
21:05:10  <Bjarni> then start the game with the conditions that will make it desync
21:05:23  <dihedral> it's paused on the mz
21:05:23  <Bjarni> edit openttd.cfg for the server and the desyncing client
21:05:39  <dihedral> what do i need to add?
21:05:47  <Bjarni> you can't edit the config when the game is running
21:05:57  <dihedral> no
21:05:59  <dihedral> :-P
21:06:11  <Bjarni> savegame_format = none
21:06:16  <dihedral> nice
21:06:19  <dihedral> hehehe
21:06:24  <Bjarni> that is ludde talk for "no compression"
21:06:30  <Bjarni> now the savegames will be huge
21:06:41  <dihedral> and then save every month
21:06:45  <Bjarni> every say
21:06:47  <Bjarni> *day
21:06:53  <ludde> hi Bjarni
21:06:54  <Bjarni> but I forgot how to set it to do that
21:06:56  <dihedral> i did not know i could do that
21:06:57  <Bjarni> hi ludde
21:07:05  <Bjarni> maybe you can remember
21:07:10  <Wolf01> 'night
21:07:12  <dihedral> and when it desyncs, diff
21:07:13  *** Wolf01 [] has quit [Quit: Once again the world is quick to bury me.]
21:07:16  <Bjarni> how do you set OpenTTD to save every day?
21:07:29  <Bjarni> I used to do that with you to find the cause of desyncs
21:07:35  <ludde> asking me? i don't remember
21:07:43  <Bjarni> same here :(
21:07:50  <ludde> just edit the code to save it every day?
21:07:52  <Eddi|zuHause2> i'd say move up the line in the tick handler
21:08:06  *** |Bastiaan| [] has joined #openttd
21:08:15  <Eddi|zuHause2> there's some line like _do_autosave = true
21:08:35  <Eddi|zuHause2> inside an if (new month) block
21:08:36  <Bjarni> dihedral: well, somebody will have some code reading/editing to do to figure out how to make it save every day
21:08:39  <Gonozal_VIII> save every tick? :D
21:08:50  <Bjarni> maybe that would be a good idea
21:09:04  <Bjarni> but once a day could be enough
21:09:11  <dihedral> Bjarni: if it's not endieness based desync, can i run the server and client on the same machiene?
21:09:20  <Bjarni> then run the game as single player on the server and the client using the same settings
21:09:32  <Eddi|zuHause2> tick handler has the form "do tick stuf, if (new day) { new day stuff, if (new month) { ... }}"
21:09:39  <Bjarni> and wait until after the desync will happen
21:09:52  <Bjarni> disable background saving too as it will cause problems when saving that often
21:10:10  <Bjarni> them use md5 or something to find the first savegame that's different
21:10:27  <Bjarni> those two savegames will tell what's different and give a clue to what went wrong
21:10:43  <Bjarni> dihedral: got the idea?
21:10:44  <Gonozal_VIII> very good idea bjarni
21:10:47  <dihedral> Bjarni: sure :-)
21:10:59  <Bjarni> but don't do anything
21:11:05  <dihedral> of course not
21:11:09  <Bjarni> even scrolling around the map will modify the savegame
21:11:14  <dihedral> oh
21:11:18  <dihedral> sure
21:11:20  <dihedral> yes
21:12:08  <Bjarni> right now it's the only way I can think of on how to track down this problem because nobody has a clue to what actually goes wrong
21:12:30  <dihedral> that's fine
21:12:32  <dihedral> i'll do that
21:13:09  <Bjarni> I can remember when we used to do this and it turned out that x86 and PPC didn't handle an overflow in the same way and it resulted in a town building different buildings when expanding... that would have been more or less impossible to find without doing this
21:13:13  <Bjarni> "but I didn't do anything"
21:14:17  <dihedral> i could see if it desyncs on my amd running linux too
21:14:19  <Bjarni> the hardest bugs to track down are bugs that's completely unrelated to user interaction
21:15:33  <dihedral> Bjarni: i'll let you know latest in 2 weeks how that turned out :-)
21:15:45  <Bjarni> no rush
21:15:49  *** Purno [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
21:15:50  <Bjarni> I have exams :(
21:16:02  <Bjarni> besides
21:16:10  *** Purno [] has joined #openttd
21:16:12  <dihedral> i'll be in sweeden in one week :-)
21:16:19  <Eddi|zuHause2> did you manage the autosave thingie?
21:16:21  <Osai> Bjarni, dihedral:
21:16:44  <Eddi|zuHause2> back when i played daylength x32 in miniin, i did that
21:16:45  <dihedral> i guess that will not be much of a problem to get it to save every day
21:16:47  <Bjarni> I wonder who would be best to figuring out what is different in the two savegames based on hex reading
21:16:56  <Eddi|zuHause2> because a day is as long as a month normally
21:17:09  <Bjarni> <dihedral> i'll be in sweeden in one week :-) <-- any reason for this torture?
21:17:18  <Eddi|zuHause2> there was this line "_do_autosave = true;" in date.c
21:17:19  <dihedral> visiting friends
21:17:21  <dihedral> meany
21:17:36  <dihedral> nice - thank you Eddi|zuHause2
21:17:59  <dihedral> well then - off to bed for me
21:18:06  <Bjarni> already?
21:18:07  <Eddi|zuHause2> just move that from the monthly section to the daily section a few lines up
21:18:21  <dihedral> work tomorrow
21:18:22  <Bjarni> are you going to get up at 5 O'clock to milk the cows or something?
21:18:41  <dihedral> and the mz game yesterday made me stay up until 3am
21:19:08  <dihedral> and i only have until Thursday to meet the deadline and finish a project
21:19:35  <Bjarni> then sleeping is wrong
21:19:43  <Bjarni> you should be working on it :P
21:19:53  <dihedral> i will - as of tomorrow
21:20:30  <Bjarni> right
21:22:16  <dihedral> night
21:22:48  <Eddi|zuHause2> anyone knows how to handle Ark? i want it to automatically choose RAR format if i unpack a .r00 file
21:23:01  *** dihedral [] has quit [Quit: ChatZilla [Firefox]]
21:23:10  <Eddi|zuHause2> it always asks me because it is not a standard extension...
21:23:43  <Eddi|zuHause2> and i don't want to click on the .rar file, because that one is always at the bottom of the list
21:23:45  *** Diabolic-Angel [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
21:23:52  <Gonozal_VIII> hehehe
21:25:11  <Gonozal_VIII> so you'll have to scroll a little for your illegal filesharing stuff ;-)
21:25:41  <Eddi|zuHause2> no, it's just an additional click...
21:25:41  <fjb> Eddi|zuHause2: Try Kontrollzentrum/dateizuordnungen.
21:26:01  <Eddi|zuHause2> and it does not have anything to do with filesharing
21:26:23  <Gonozal_VIII> why else would you use such multi volume packages?
21:26:26  * Prof_Frink can rarely be bothered with ark
21:26:27  <Eddi|zuHause2> fjb: no, the .r00 files are associated with ark
21:26:39  <Eddi|zuHause2> just after opening them, ark asks what format it is
21:27:08  <Prof_Frink> `unrar x <tab>.rar`
21:27:18  <Eddi|zuHause2> Gonozal_VIII: for example, a DVD is 4.4GB, but you can only put 4GB files on them
21:27:53  <Gonozal_VIII> and you have files, that require so many 4gb parts that you have to scroll for the .rar tile?
21:27:54  <Eddi|zuHause2> Prof_Frink: that is slower than right click -> extract -> extract here (click)
21:28:03  <Eddi|zuHause2> yes ;)
21:29:09  <Prof_Frink> Eddi|zuHause2: Not if you're sitting at a term parked in the appropriate dir
21:29:15  <Eddi|zuHause2> Gonozal_VIII: i also have files packed to 100MB to fit on a zip dirk
21:29:38  <Eddi|zuHause2> Prof_Frink: that is an argument for my side ;)

23:32:54  <LeviathNL> 0.6.0 beta is based on a nightly
23:33:16  <Omnituens> because i just installed a nightly, and its saying 0.5.3
23:33:25  <Gonozal_VIII> the nightly is a daily compilition of the current development state
23:33:37  <glx> Omnituens: then it's not a nightly
23:33:51  <Omnituens> i probably just messed up the install
23:33:56  <Omnituens> i'll try again
23:39:52  <Omnituens> r11523 now
