00:12:01  <Eddi|zuHause> is it possible that apache is extraordinarily slow?
00:12:49  <Aali> i would say yes but i have no idea what you're talking about
00:13:55  <Eddi|zuHause> for my diploma thesis i have to provide a webservice interface to my program, when i run that as a server on localhost, i get replys instantly, if i run them on an apache on localhost, replies take >1s
00:15:08  <SmatZ> is it possible there are too many requests and too few worker threads?
00:15:42  <Eddi|zuHause> no, only one request at a time
00:16:40  <Aali> apache is not that crappy
00:17:41  <thingwath> first request in row, or every request?
00:18:05  *** welshdragon [~vista@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:18:46  <Eddi|zuHause> the example client calls each function of the webservice once with a sample input. that's like 10 calls overall
00:19:27  <Eddi|zuHause> some functions take actual time to calculate, but others should just fetch trivial data
00:20:21  <Aali> and everything takes >1s?
00:20:52  <Eddi|zuHause> yes
00:21:09  <eMJay> Eddi|zuHause: I would suggest that since apache hosts a majority of websites, it is not the problem exactly

00:22:54  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: is the webservice connecting to something else, like a database?
00:22:57  <thingwath> I would try strace :)
00:24:13  * Rubidium has seen apache behave *very* slowly when the hdd was almost full

01:26:25  <Char> hmmm
01:26:33  <Char> i guess i am too stupid for this ECS vector stuff
01:27:05  <Char> it does not seem to work
01:27:27  <Aali> what?
01:27:35  <glx> grf order is important for ECS
01:27:48  <Char> yeah
01:27:53  <Char> i put town vector first
01:28:13  <glx> and the other in grfid order
01:28:43  <Char> uhmmm
01:28:51  <Char> why is there a town vector and a basic vector?
01:29:01  <Belugas> ask George :)
01:29:49  <Char> :P
01:29:54  <Char> now it seems to work
01:30:01  <SmatZ> Char: this may help you
01:30:39  <Char> SmatZ: yeah, thanks, but i read that already (i said i was too stupid)
01:30:56  <Char> what bothers me, though, is that i cannot build the vehicles to transport the stuff
01:31:23  <glx> lv4 should work correctly (road)
01:32:01  <Char> lv4?
01:32:08  <glx> long vehicle
01:32:10  <Aali> long vehicles 4
01:32:19  <glx> bt egrvts works too
01:33:01  <Belugas> if you look in the forums, there's a thread called "you have a problem with ECS vectors? look here " or somehting like that, Char
01:33:09  <Belugas> you might find a lot of usefull infos in there
01:33:57  <Belugas> going to bed
01:33:59  <Belugas> see you

01:51:57  <Char> and i would need to find a train set that supports ECS cargoes, which the standard one does not
01:52:54  <Char> so

03:06:53  <Digitalfox> How good is Code Gear c++ Builder 2007? My university demands we code c on it and show projects on it until next year where can choose another compiler/builder..
03:13:52  <eMJay>
03:13:55  <eMJay> looks ok to me :P
03:14:46  <Sacro|Laptop> Digitalfox: use whatever IDE you feel like, use whatever they want to provide project files
03:14:48  <Sacro|Laptop> ...
03:14:50  <Sacro|Laptop> profit
03:15:20  * eMJay agrees with Sacro|Laptop
03:15:34  <Sacro|Laptop> we are given VS2008
03:15:35  <Sacro|Laptop> I use vim
03:17:32  <Digitalfox> well they say VS2008 is not standard friendly because of pointers names
03:18:05  <Digitalfox> but thanks for the link eMJay and sacro
03:20:15  <Sacro|Laptop> Digitalfox: cite
03:20:32  <eMJay> Digitalfox: any decent IDE should be able to refactor names...
03:20:43  <eMJay> at the very worst, find-replace should work :P
03:22:19  <Digitalfox> Well the major reason is they want us to code c and c++ using all it's standards and only after a year of it we can use another IDE :\
03:23:27  <eMJay> I guess I'd give c++ builder a go and if it sucked I'd use notepad/vim/nano/whatever...
03:24:03  <Digitalfox> yeah will try c++ builder.. Lets hope it's good :)
03:24:15  <Sacro|Laptop> Digitalfox: its
03:25:47  <Digitalfox> By the way Sacro how are you? Feeling better?

04:14:55  <ccfreak2k> Why are there never cars or people in any ttd cities?
04:16:22  <eMJay> they're all reclusive
04:16:35  <Aali> they're inside, playing ttd
04:16:57  <eMJay> and waiting at stations, to visit their friends houses to play ttd

04:18:15  <ccfreak2k> Maybe someone should make trucks or trains to move packets around.
04:18:36  <Aali> actually you could deliver a thousand people to a road tile if you really wanted to
04:20:30  <eMJay> damn that would be slow internet :P
04:21:20  <ccfreak2k> Fine. Maybe I'll just buy all the land around your town and let it whither and die.
04:21:26  <eMJay> can anyone explain to me how a helicopter can have a next()?
04:21:37  <eMJay> let alone a next()->next()?
04:21:59  <ccfreak2k> Good question.
04:22:12  <ccfreak2k> I guess it's to clarify that you don't want next()->previous() or something.
04:24:25  <eMJay> I'm looking the todo in Doxygen
04:24:31  <eMJay> looking at*
04:27:37  <eMJay> And from the code in aircraft_cmd.cpp, the higher the speed the slower the rotors spin?
04:31:51  <glx> eMJay: helicopter->shadow->rotor
04:32:29  <glx> that's why it can carry passengers and mail
04:33:12  <glx> and good night

08:12:56  <ln> a morning in Australia, too
08:13:14  <Gekz> it's not morning.
08:14:32  <Char> depends on where you are
08:14:51  <Char> and since i guess that quite some of us live in europe....
08:15:24  <Celestar> hm
08:15:51  <Celestar> China has now officially admitted that they produce more greenhouse gases than any other nation on this planet and expect to at least double that value till 2030.
08:16:08  <Char> cool
08:16:20  <Char> clima catastrophe hip-hip-hoooray.
08:16:21  <Char> :/
08:16:39  <Celestar> they also officially don't care (apparently)
08:16:39  <petern> well they do have a lot of people
08:16:52  <Char> the problem is
08:17:05  <Char> as long as the USA continue their current policy
08:17:11  <Char> there is no reason to care for china
08:17:27  <Celestar> it's not the USA's fault that China doesn't give a damn
08:17:33  <Char> well
08:17:57  <Celestar> China wouldn't give a damn if the US had NO emmission whatsoever
08:18:08  <Char> now the problem is
08:18:13  <Char> the USA are far more developed
08:18:15  <Char> and the USA say
08:18:40  <Char> well, we will not reduce our CO2 emissions if it harms our economic growth
08:18:54  <Char> the US economy is in a much better shape than chinas
08:19:20  <Char> now why would china say "hey great, guys, you do not care, but we do" ?
08:19:39  <Char> their argument kinda is
08:20:04  <Celestar> I'm by far no supported of the US policy; but saying it's ther US fault/problem than China is now the biggest polluter is kinda far-fetched
08:20:10  <Char> "you have been spending years emitting greenhouse gases like crazy, and now you want us, who are much less developed, to not emit them?"
08:20:31  <Char> no, i am not saying that
08:21:04  <Char> i am just saying that the US policy does nothing to help the international community convince china to reduce greenhouse gas emisions
08:21:06  <Celestar> it's solely China's fault, and it's solely China's responsibility to remedy the situation.
08:22:19  <Char> hmmm. so you don't see my point?
08:22:24  <Celestar> and with any decent policy, greenhouse-gas-reduction doesn't affect economic growth.
08:22:32  <Char> it does
08:22:38  <Char> not much, but it does
08:22:40  <Celestar> it needn't
08:22:47  <Celestar> only if you do it wrong.-
08:22:52  <Celestar> like, for example, germany
08:23:05  <Char> it does
08:23:08  <Char> it has to
08:23:12  <Celestar> er why?
08:23:33  <Char> if you are trying to optimize for the most economic growth
08:23:53  <Char> and then you are adding an additional restriction (like, lower greenhouse gas emission)
08:24:06  <Char> then you get a new "optimal solution" for what you should do
08:24:27  <Char> now, it is theoretically possible that the new optimal solution has the same economic growth
08:24:40  <Celestar> just use non-greenhouse-gas-producing power plants and most of the problem is solved.
08:24:53  <Char> it cannot be that the economic growth is higher (cause otherwise, you could have taken that solution in the non-restricted scenario)
08:25:05  <Char> but chances are VERY high that the new optimal solution is worse
08:25:33  <Char> i mean
08:25:41  <Celestar> I quite disagree there
08:25:46  <Char> i see that a greenhouse gas reduction policy is a very good idea
08:26:05  <Char> hmmmm. you may disagree, however, this is basic optimization theory ;)
08:26:22  <Char> although i have to admit that the current policy is far from optimal as well ;)
08:26:33  <Char> with regards to economic growth
08:27:03  <Celestar> Char: the thing is: the energy production with the lower greenhouse gas emmission is accidently also the energy production with the lowest cost.
08:27:04  <Char> and yes, if done decently, the effect on economic growth is quite low, i guess
08:27:47  <Char> you are voting for nuclear power plants here?
08:28:53  <Celestar> of course
08:28:57  <Char> hmmm
08:29:08  <Char> that got its own subtle problems
08:29:27  <Char> besides, you cannot support more than like 60% of your energy consumption with nuclear power.
08:29:41  <Celestar> yes. but there is not the faintest chance that we even remotely meet our own goals without BUILDING ADDITIONAL nuclear power plants
08:30:26  <Char> and, btw, coming back to china, their attitude towards greenhouse gases probably is like "why should we give a shit and care about it when noone else does, especially those who are far more developed than us".
08:30:50  <petern> china has nuclear power plants under construction
08:30:54  <Celestar> Char: they wouldn't give a shit even with everyone else caring
08:31:19  <Char> well, but that is because economic growth still is the holy grail for any kind of politics.... which i think is stupid in the long term
08:32:05  <Celestar> economic growth is required.
08:32:37  <Char> Celestar: well, you know that for sure? probably true, but at least you could pressure them if the rest of the world would be trying very hard to reduce greenhouse gases. but with economic growth being more important than the general health of this planet....
08:32:45  <Char> Celestar: for what?
08:32:53  <Celestar> Char: keeping people employed
08:33:16  <Char> why cant people be employed in a stable economy (non-growing)?
08:33:24  <Char> well, yeah, i know, it currently works like that
08:33:32  <Celestar> Char: it inherently works like that
08:33:34  <Char> but economy cannot grow forever
08:33:42  <Celestar> growth means life, stagnation means death.
08:33:47  <Celestar> Stagnation is NEVER good
08:34:09  <Char> just thinking logically, there will be times when the economic growth either comes to a halt or we have a depression
08:34:17  <Celestar> temporarily
08:34:30  <Char> no
08:34:32  <Char> generally
08:34:34  <Char> cause
08:34:43  <Char> there is like an "upper limit"
08:34:46  <Char> there must be
08:34:48  <Char> somewhere
08:34:55  <Char> probably we are still far from it, though
08:35:10  <Celestar> In any kind of economy there will be at least some kind of increase in efficiency, thus productivity increases. Unless the economic growth matches the productivity increases, jobs will be lost.
08:35:40  <Char> yeah
08:35:44  <Char> or we all have to work less
08:35:56  <Char> and enjoy more leisure time
08:36:13  <Celestar> yes, and you get into a vicious circle...
08:36:16  <Char> i know it currently works like this
08:36:30  <Char> i am just saying
08:36:36  <Char> maybe we should think of other options
08:36:48  <Char> and try to be less narrow-minded
08:36:53  <Celestar> Char: trying to freeze a state of a system is not an option
08:37:09  <Char> i am not
08:37:59  <Celestar> a non-growing economy is a kind of system freeze
08:38:08  <Char> not necessarily
08:38:29  <Celestar> let me generalize: a non-growing state will not exist.
08:38:34  <Celestar> it's either up or down
08:38:36  <Char> its just that other things change, not the gross national product
08:39:08  <Char> btw, another option is to have a stable economy, but reduce the amount of people
08:39:13  <Char> gradually
08:39:20  <Celestar> let's talk Gross Human Product
08:39:23  <Char> like china does with its single-child policy
08:39:32  <Celestar> he. china still has population growth
08:39:36  <Celestar> significant
08:39:36  <Char> i know
08:39:43  <Char> but they significantly reduced it
08:39:45  <Char> and also
08:39:57  <Char> the point is that the one-child policy is not as effective anymore
08:40:07  <Celestar> I don't think telling people how many kinds they are supposed to have is the way to go
08:40:26  <Char> because all those children who have no siblings now grow up
08:40:36  <Char> and if two of them marry, they may have more than one child
08:41:13  <Char> well, i dont think having uncontrolled population growth is the way to go either
08:41:16  <Celestar> there will always be population growth of some sort
08:41:18  <Celestar> always.
08:41:23  <Char> yeah
08:41:27  <Celestar> and I don't think that's a bad thing per se
08:41:32  <Char> until the earth is either uninhabitable
08:41:34  <Rubidium> aren't orphans (due to the one child policy) the major export product of china?
08:41:40  <Char> or we get world war III
08:42:00  <Celestar> Char: there are other ways
08:42:02  <Char> and i am pretty sure one of those things will happen in my lifetime
08:42:07  <Char> probably world war III
08:42:48  <Celestar> I do not share your pessimistic appraisal of the situation
08:42:49  <Char> Rubidium: no idea
08:43:01  <Char> Celestar: you don't have to ;)
08:43:05  <Char> and btw
08:43:18  <Char> i do think that constant population growth is a bad thing in the long run
08:43:35  <Char> because i do not think that this earth is able to support 14+ billion people
08:43:44  <Char> and i also think that if we were only like one billion
08:43:49  <Char> lots of things would be much easier
08:43:55  <Rubidium> Char: that highly depends on the resource usage
08:44:05  <Char> well
08:44:07  <Char> point is
08:44:12  <Char> if we were only one billion
08:44:14  <Celestar> Char: Earth is not the only planet
08:44:24  *** [com]buster [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
08:44:25  <Rubidium> if everyone would act like an American (the USA kind of American) the earth only supports roughly 1 billion people
08:44:33  *** [com]buster [] has joined #openttd
08:44:41  <Char> we could use up 14 times the ressources that we could use up if we were 14 billion
08:44:41  <Celestar> Rubidium: using current technology.
08:44:57  <Char> Celestar: currently, the earth is the only freaking earth we have
08:45:13  <Char> and the next earth-like planet is at least ~50 light years away
08:45:15  <Celestar> Char: yes. hence there's need to extend our grasp
08:45:35  <Char> which means, we will not reach them within the next ~200-1000 years for sure
08:45:38  <Celestar> Char: Mars is Earth-like enough to support many billions on the long run
08:45:57  <Char> yeah, go for it, i would not want to live on mars.
08:45:57  *** Mortal [~mortal@] has joined #openttd
08:46:03  <Celestar> why?
08:46:26  <Char> cause.... you know....
08:46:47  <ln> expensive DSL connections, because of the little number of ISPs.
08:47:02  <Rubidium> internet lags a lot
08:47:03  <Char> i like sitting under autum-yellow trees in the warm september sun hugging and kissing my girlfriend without caring about fuck like my oxygen supply
08:47:31  <Celestar> Char: Mars can be terraformed
08:47:35  <Char> yeah
08:47:42  <Char> they still miss an atmosphere
08:47:47  <Celestar> which can be generated
08:48:01  <Char> mars is not heavy enough to keep it as far as i know
08:48:12  <Celestar> yes and no
08:48:21  <Celestar> depends on the atmosphere and the timescales
08:48:47  <Char> there is a zone around each sun which is inhabitable
08:48:50  <Celestar> it would have to be resupplied at regular intervals probably (regular intervals being about 1% in a million years)
08:48:50  <Char> mars isnt in it
08:49:04  <Celestar> Char: there are THREE planets in Sol's habitable zone
08:49:06  <Char> okay fine
08:49:11  <Char> really?
08:49:20  <Celestar> soon, there will be two, since the HabZone of every star moves outward.
08:49:23  <ln> Char: what's wrong with sitting under summer-pink trees in warm marstober sun hugging your girlfriend's space helmet?
08:49:25  <Char> still, we are not getting to an inhabitable mars within the next 1000 years
08:49:28  <Char> which means for me
08:49:32  <Celestar> Char: Venus, Earth and Mars.
08:49:32  <Char> stick to the earth for now
08:49:46  <Celestar> Char: it's exactly that kind of thinking that will get us stuck forever.
08:49:50  <Char> ln: the space helmet
08:50:02  <Char> you know, i like body contact
08:50:26  <Celestar> even about 20 years after the first landing, there wouldn't be space helmets for most of the time.
08:50:31  <Char> Celestar: no. i am completely willing to accept that you might at some point be able to live on mars
08:50:37  <Char> i just wouldnt count on it for now
08:50:51  <Celestar> Char: not count. But start acting.
08:50:57  <Char> fine
08:51:01  <Char> go ahead
08:51:03  <Char> USA are
08:51:15  <Celestar> Char: Earth is way to small a basket for mankind to put all its eggs in.
08:51:18  <Celestar> they're not really.
08:51:50  <Celestar> Char: one 10km-asteroid and we're goners
08:52:10  <Celestar> at least, 95% of us at least
08:52:15  <Char> i guess its easier to survey the space around us for asteroids
08:52:20  <Char> than to go for mars, but well
08:52:53  <Celestar> Char: what will that survey help?
08:52:56  <Celestar> Char: brace for impact?
08:52:59  <Char> no
08:53:20  <Char> if you see the asteroids early enough
08:53:24  <Char> you can change their path
08:53:27  <Celestar> yes.
08:53:47  <Char> and
08:53:53  <Celestar> Provided to have space fusion reactors and a crew that installs some driver onto the asteroid.
08:54:08  <Char> the risk of being hit within the next 1000 years is like.... extremely low
08:54:17  <Char> not really
08:54:23  <Char> there is a variety of options
08:54:52  <Char> you can for example try to install solar panels and get driven by solar wind
08:54:57  <Celestar> Char: Since 2000, we've been hit by half a dozen of asteroids that all exceed the explosive force of the largest Hbomb ever tested.
08:55:08  <Celestar> Char: that doesn't work for a 1km+ asteroid.
08:55:12  <Char> and did it hurt us?
08:55:22  <Char> it does, if you do it early enough
08:55:22  <Celestar> Char: no cuz they went down over water.
08:55:33  <Celestar> Char: Early enough in this case means >1 century.
08:55:38  <Char> well
08:55:41  <Char> so survey more space
08:55:51  <Celestar> er.
08:55:58  <Celestar> how are we getting the solar sails there?
08:56:01  <Celestar> we need a crew.
08:56:06  <Char> fine
08:56:08  <Char> train one
08:56:10  <ln> bruce willis would volunteer.
08:56:26  <Celestar> Char: and it would need a 25-year journey at least.
08:56:36  <Char> btw
08:56:42  <Char> you could use robots
08:56:44  <Rubidium> asteroid and >1 century... doesn't that mean that they are coming directly from the Oort belt?
08:56:49  <Char> makes quite some things a lot easier
08:57:10  <Celestar> Rubidium: several of the heavy hitters are.
08:57:10  <Char> Celestar: by the way, just a side question: what are you doing in reallife?
08:57:37  <petern> coding ottd :D
08:57:41  <Celestar> Char: doing my PhD in mechanical engineering (computational fluid dynamics for gas turbine application)
08:57:43  <Rubidium> then when you notice them you need to send something to that direction and interception will take eons
08:57:59  <petern> hmm, date: 16 aug 2008
08:58:05  <petern> well, these drives are not too old :D
08:58:10  <Char> Celestar: well... i am about to start a phd in measurement and control technology ;)
08:58:15  <Celestar> Rubidium: if we say one year, a solar sail will not be enough. You need at least a nuclear electric rocket.
08:58:24  *** Brianetta [] has joined #openttd
08:58:31  <Celestar> Char: my Major is aerospace engineering and power plants.
08:58:33  * dih hugs Belugas
08:58:40  <Char> ;)
08:58:52  <Char> sounds like you got an idea what you are talking about
08:59:01  <Celestar> unfortunately
08:59:06  <Char> however
08:59:11  <Celestar> because I don't always like what I see :P
08:59:21  <Char> i would still not count on mars to live on
08:59:25  <Char> cause
08:59:26  <Celestar> er not for us.
08:59:27  <Celestar> :)
08:59:32  <Char> if you say like 95% death
08:59:39  <Char> from a heavy hitter
08:59:52  <Celestar> a 10km would do so
08:59:54  <Char> and now you shift some people to mars
09:00:03  <Celestar> That won't help.
09:00:07  <Char> exactly
09:00:18  <Char> you still got 95% death
09:00:26  <Char> and 10.000 people watching from mars
09:00:31  <Rubidium> just "call" the Asgard ;)
09:00:37  <Char> btw
09:00:41  <Celestar> we need the Mars colony to launch a deflection mission from there.
09:00:46  <Celestar> it's much easier from there.
09:00:50  <Celestar> everything we need is there.
09:01:02  <Celestar> and the Delta-V for such a mission is a fraction of what you need from earth.
09:01:14  <Char> a 10km monster is a once-in-100.000.000-years-occurrence, right?
09:01:28  <Celestar> Char: once in 60 million years. Last occurence was 65 million years ago
09:01:36  <Char> uhmmm.... okay
09:01:37  <Rubidium> Celestar: that's a hefty task for the few robots on there
09:01:41  <Char> that is, if you shoot directly
09:01:53  <Char> why cant you use a swing-by-maneuver?
09:02:04  <Char> which has pretty much the same effect
09:02:08  <Char> just takes a year longer
09:02:14  <Celestar> a 4m asteroid (Hiroshima-equivalent) has 1/year frequency.
09:02:25  <Celestar> Char: because you need most of the Delta-V to get into Earth's orbit.
09:02:49  <Char> Celestar: so.... that means chances are high we still got another one or ten million years :)
09:03:18  <Celestar> a 40m asteroid (Tsar Bomba) has a 1/400 years occurence. wrong place => 500 "Megadeaths"
09:03:37  <Char> hmmm
09:03:45  <Char> tsar boma?
09:03:54  <Celestar> the biggest H-Bomb ever tested.
09:03:57  <Rubidium> can we vote where the asteroid will hit?
09:04:15  <Celestar> Rubidium: we can, but chances are the astroid will care not :P
09:04:40  <Char> however.
09:04:57  <Char> to be honest, i think we have more important problems to take care of than an asteroid from space
09:05:08  <Celestar> Char: the thing is: there are about 200 000 estimated Near-Earth-Objects bigger than 100 meters. ALL of them will hit sooner or later.
09:05:15  <Char> cause that problem is very unlikely to really become a problem
09:05:27  <Char> on the other hand, the climate is very likely to become a problem
09:05:46  <Celestar> Char: Space is able to provide us with solutions to many earth-bound problems, mostly: Energy, Thirst and Hunger.
09:05:47  <Char> Celestar: good thing is: most of them will hit later
09:05:48  <Rubidium> Celestar: with hit you mean any celestial body, right?
09:05:54  <Celestar> Rubidium: hit Earth.
09:06:18  <Celestar> Rubidium: "Near-Earth" objects.
09:06:31  <Char> well
09:06:36  <Char> most of them are under control
09:06:42  <Char> i.e. their paths are calculated
09:06:45  <Char> or not?
09:06:51  <Rubidium> that's orbit of object intersects orbit of earth, right?
09:07:05  <Celestar> er. about 190 000 are not even calatogued yet.
09:07:21  <Char> and still, i would better have the problems of earth taken care of on earth
09:07:24  <Celestar> Rubidium: or come close enough for Earth's gravity to become paramount.
09:07:37  <Char> cause earth is able to give solutions to these problems as well
09:07:40  <Char> and
09:07:41  <Celestar> Char: Space will/could also provide a clean and almost infinite energy source.
09:07:45  <Char> it is much simpler
09:07:49  <Rubidium> so they can, if we're lucky, hit other planets or the sun
09:07:54  <Rubidium> or even the moon
09:08:07  <Rubidium> which is probably the biggest NEO ;)
09:08:14  <Char> ;)
09:08:20  <Celestar> Rubidium: Moon is an option. Mars is an option. Due to the sizes, about 90+% will hit earth :)
09:08:22  <Char> whatever. i need some breakfast.
09:08:28  <Celestar> Rubidium: Moon is moving way from earth.
09:08:33  <Celestar> at about 1cm/year
09:08:45  <Celestar> that's why the Earth's rotation is getting slower and slower
09:09:11  <Celestar> in due time, one earth's day will be about 28 or our current days.
09:09:37  <Celestar> maybe more.
09:09:44  <Celestar> should be more
09:09:56  <Celestar> gotta recompute that once.
09:10:02  <petern> we won't be worrying about global warming then
09:10:04  <Celestar> maybe planetmaker has the solution at hand ;)
09:10:11  <ln> finally the extra hours per day i've been hoping for.

09:10:48  <Celestar> not much, but not little enough not to notice ;)

09:34:55  <Celestar> UTF-8 is some encoding system.
09:35:04  <Celestar> "codepage" for DOS/WIN talk
09:35:07  <planetmaker> but much longer than 28 days as increasing lunar distance will increase the lunar month - which then will have to be an Earthian day

09:37:14  <planetmaker> :D
09:37:37  <Celestar> that's not much slower than the train.
09:37:57  <Celestar> They used to run Munich-ZÃŒrich with ICE-TDs
09:38:18  <planetmaker> Celestar: but I have some doubts that it's worthwhile to calculate the time when Earth and moon will be both tidally locked - it will be after the Sun died.
09:38:31  <Rubidium> Celestar: "only" a little over 4 hours
09:38:35  <Celestar> planetmaker: I tihnk so
09:38:45  <Celestar> Rubidium: yes. or about 3 hours by car using normal driving
09:38:48  <Rubidium> that's ofcourse twice as much as with a car
09:39:07  <Celestar> 4 != 2*3
09:39:10  <Rubidium> hmm, although... not much German autobahn

09:52:34  <Char> actually wanted to try cargodest at some point
09:52:35  <TrueBrain> ssh:// <- Celestar: the push I use :p
09:52:43  * Rubidium wonders when Char's next show is ;)
09:52:45  <Celestar> TrueBrain: thanks
09:52:45  <TrueBrain> (mind the // ;))
09:52:50  <Celestar> Rubidium: what show?
09:52:55  <Celestar> ok I've merge again :D
09:52:56  <TrueBrain> Char: The Medium
09:52:57  <Char> Rubidium: next show????
09:53:01  <TrueBrain> he refers to I guess
09:53:03  *** Runr [] has left #openttd []
09:53:21  <Char> medium?
09:53:22  <Rubidium> TrueBrain: wow, you understood me :)
09:53:33  <Rubidium> Char:
09:53:33  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: yeah .. I start to understand how your mind works ;)
09:53:54  <Celestar> haha
09:54:00  <TrueBrain> wow, my new CPU is fast ... Gentoo up and running in 2 hours of compiling .. doesn't happen that much :p
09:54:07  <Char> weird
09:54:12  <TrueBrain> now it needs to bite itself into KDE .. that will take some time :)
09:54:25  <Celestar> I HATE Munich-Stuttgart :(
09:54:36  <Char> whys that?
09:54:56  <petern> hmm, how can i update blkids?
09:54:59  <Celestar> Stuttgart-Aachen: 2h 49mins. Aachen-Munich (via Stuttgart) 5h 20 mins
09:55:27  <Celestar> mind you: Stuttgart-Aachen is 450km and Stuttgart-Munich is 200km.
09:55:27  <Rubidium> Celestar: Munchen-Munster is way more interesting ;)
09:55:57  <Celestar> Rubidium: 6:34h
09:56:32  <Celestar> Rubidium: 4:30h from Munich to Bonn, and 2 hours from Boon to MÃŒnster :P
09:56:45  <Rubidium> Celestar: you could take a plane ;)
09:56:48  <Celestar> Rubidium: yes.
09:57:05  <Rubidium> and then the slow train to Enschede
09:57:46  <Celestar> flight is 75 minutes
09:57:55  <Rubidium> maybe we could then have a cargodest release party or so ;)
09:58:16  <Celestar> yeah
09:58:31  <Celestar> found a flight for 138 EUR
09:58:46  <Celestar> round trip
09:59:06  <Rubidium> sounds cheaper than the train
09:59:34  <Rubidium> assuming you don't have a reduction card of some kind
10:00:33  <Celestar> I have
10:00:55  <Celestar> IDIOTS: "Unknown foreign fare. Please book ticket at the service desk"
10:01:09  <Char> lol
10:01:14  <Celestar> I CAN book to Amsterdam
10:01:20  <Celestar> not Enschede
10:01:46  <Rubidium> Celestar: that's like... uhm... stupid ;)
10:02:38  <Celestar> yeah
10:02:42  <Celestar> let's try amsterday
10:02:54  <Rubidium> the German train runs up to Enschede station, complete with German signalling and safety systems and the track is completely seperate from the Dutch tracks
10:03:38  <Celestar> 228 EUR round trip to amsterdam.
10:03:44  <Celestar> including my reduction card
10:04:35  <Celestar> Dec 12 to Dec 14
10:04:55  <petern> hmm, people seem to say that swap should not be on raid-1...
10:05:10  <Rubidium> Enschede-Amsterdam is 36,70 without reduction round trip
10:05:15  <Gekz> petern: it sounds quite pointless to me
10:05:17  <Celestar> how long?
10:05:29  <Rubidium> 2:05
10:05:46  <petern> Gekz: for HA?
10:05:53  <Gekz> HA?
10:05:55  <Celestar> LOL
10:05:56  <Celestar> so
10:05:59  <petern> high availability
10:06:11  <Celestar> Train: Munich-Amsterdam: 240 EUR round trip, takes 7:30h each way
10:06:17  <petern> so when one drive dies, it's okay that it won't be able to swap stuff back in ?
10:06:31  <Celestar> Plane: Munich-Amsterdam: 89 EUR round trip, takes 1:30h each way
10:06:36  <Celestar> which would I chose?
10:06:47  <Gekz> petern: couldnt you just put swap on two drives
10:06:50  <Gekz> outside RAID
10:06:53  <Gekz> and activate both
10:06:55  <petern> i have got two drives
10:07:03  <Gekz> on the two drives*
10:07:12  <petern> how would that help in the event of a drive failure?
10:07:34  <Celestar> petern: disable swap?
10:07:36  <Gekz> swap would still exist.
10:07:37  <Gekz> lol
10:07:39  <Gekz> swap is pointless
10:07:41  <Gekz> I dont use it
10:08:08  <Rubidium> Celestar: looks like DB sends you via another route because it's marginally faster and that includes a few km of Dutch trains
10:08:10  <ln> *don't
10:08:20  <Rubidium> Celestar: how much is Munich-Hengelo?
10:08:39  *** mode/#openttd [+o petern] by ChanServ
10:08:57  <Celestar> Rubidium: Munich-MÃŒnster was about 200 EUR round trip ...
10:09:01  <petern> Gekz, ah, so you don't use it, so you don't know what you're talking about :D
10:09:18  <Gekz> oh burn
10:09:21  <Gekz> that's not true
10:09:24  <Gekz> I use it, just not on this system.
10:09:40  <Gekz> ln: contractions are old timer grammar.
10:09:49  <Celestar> Rubidium: 192 EUR to Hengelo
10:10:00  <Gekz> especially on the interwebs
10:10:36  <Celestar> Rubidium: still a far cry compared to the 89 EUR for the flight
10:11:05  <ln> Gekz: ok, then simply write "do not" instead of using contraction.
10:11:08  <Rubidium> +4 EUR for the local train
10:11:21  <Rubidium> and approximately 15 minutes extra
10:12:04  <Gekz> ln: I wont agree.
10:12:14  <Gekz> I can break my language how I see fit.
10:12:18  <Gekz> it is my native tongue.
10:12:28  <Gekz> I wont let foreigners do the same until they fully grasp it

10:18:15  <Celestar> block all e-mails that have you addy as from?
10:18:16  <Celestar> ;)
10:19:09  <TrueBrain> stupid Gentoo .. made OpenTTD ebuild EAPI=2, which is NOT yet stable for all platforms ... let them test those things on other packages :p

10:32:37  <Char> i need a train set for the ECS vectors
10:32:45  <Char> actually i would like to use the standard train set
10:32:55  <Char> but that one does not support the ECS cargoes....
10:35:42  <Rubidium> there's a newgrf somewhat that adds ecs support to the original vehicle (IIRC)
10:35:59  <Rubidium> s/what/where/
10:36:19  <Ammler> oldvehicels-newcargos.grf from pikka
10:36:42  <Ammler> Char: check ECS wiki.
10:37:41  <TrueBrain> I love this country ..
10:37:56  <TrueBrain> we are getting RFID passes to get into public service stuff (trains, busses, ...)
10:37:59  <Char> i couldnt find it in ecs wiki
10:38:03  <TrueBrain> now it is long known that the cards are broken
10:38:07  <TrueBrain> as in: easy to hack
10:38:25  <TrueBrain> last week an article was published where a person could copy his card with just 150 euro of hardware
10:38:43  <TrueBrain> today they made it final that in Rotterdam it is the required thing to have in 2009
10:38:45  * Rubidium wonders why hacking those cards is *such* a big issue...
10:39:01  <TrueBrain> I really wonder how many people will never buy a real ticket ...
10:39:17  *** roboboy [] has quit [Quit: ajax IRC Client]
10:39:22  <keyweed_> it isn't. companies deploying a seriously flawed system IS a big issue
10:39:29  <Char> ah found it
10:39:59  <TrueBrain> it just smells like Microsoft. The OS contains known security issues .. well .. release it anyway .. call it Windows XP
10:40:11  <TrueBrain> or: this OS contains serious stability problems .. well .. release it anyway .. call it Windows ME
10:40:18  <Rubidium> keyweed_: the Japanese are using a similar system which is broken too, but nobody complains there
10:40:25  <TrueBrain> I mean, come on ... are the people leading this country really that stupid?
10:40:35  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: the Japanese system is not as broken as the Dutch system :)
10:40:50  <Rubidium> TrueBrain: are you sure?
10:40:52  <TrueBrain> we now use an encryption which was first marketed in .. 1985 I believe
10:41:02  <TrueBrain> how outdated can you be?
10:41:18  <keyweed_> Rubidium: the dutch system is absurdly broken, from DOS attacks, identity theft, free travel. all you need is a 30 dollar card writern and the skills of a 14 year olds script kiddie
10:41:42  <TrueBrain> keyweed_: well, not really that black and white .. as it took a IT student a bit mroe money and time to do it correctly ;)
10:42:32  <keyweed_> TrueBrain: true, saves the script kiddies a lot of work though. as soon as keys start getting published on the internet things will start getting interesting
10:42:45  <TrueBrain> keyweed_: already done
10:42:45  <TrueBrain> :p
10:42:49  <Rubidium> keyweed_: broken yes, but the Japanese version is equally flawed if not more flawed
10:42:59  <TrueBrain> the paper published, includes detailed information on how to make a copy
10:43:02  <TheMask97> TrueBrain: isn't there a way for them to know the card is hacked? I wonder how many people are actually going to hack the card if there is a risk they will be caught...
10:43:04  <TrueBrain> and keys are already there to be found ;)
10:43:07  <keyweed_> but hell. eventually they'll see their mistake and fix it by spending more tax dollars then an earlier fix would have cost.
10:43:25  <ln> *than
10:43:29  <TrueBrain> keyweed_: yeah ... that is what I am afraid of :(
10:43:35  <Rubidium> as in the Japanese version I can just walk through the gate without a card
10:43:39  <keyweed_> TheMask97: there is nu realy difference between a hacked card and the original
10:43:40  <TrueBrain> TheMask97: you can flash it back on your original card, so it is pretty hard to detect ;)
10:43:46  <keyweed_> *not really  a
10:43:47  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: that is a flaw on a completely different level
10:44:11  <Rubidium> TrueBrain: really?
10:44:19  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: like we here now talk about a lock of a window that is easy to pick .. and you tell us that the front door is open
10:44:26  <TrueBrain> sure, it is also a problem, but not related on that level :)
10:44:35  <TheMask97> TrueBrain: lol :)
10:44:44  <Rubidium> and identity theft is just stupid design
10:45:06  <keyweed_> stupid design is the norm these days
10:45:12  <TheMask97> TrueBrain: well I guess I've have to buy the hardware for 150 euro then ;) although I hardly ever travel by public transport
10:45:22  <TrueBrain> but okay, I now hope they roll out the OVChip very fast over the completely country ... then I can travel for free for life
10:45:45  <TrueBrain> TheMask97: soon you can buy those chips online for a few bucks :p
10:46:10  <keyweed_> 39.95 mifare programmable watch
10:46:34  <Rubidium> oh... not to mention that you can run a ovchipcard like application on your (Japanese) mobile phone
10:46:47  <TrueBrain> "He! I have a cool idea! Lets make a chip where people can travel with throughout the country" -- "Yes, good idea! But .. to save a few bucks, lets use that old standard we are using for ages already, it is so stable ... 16bit key, that is enough, not?"
10:46:52  <Rubidium> and go through the gates with that
10:46:58  <Rubidium> or pay at shops with the same system
10:47:05  <Char> hmmm
10:47:10  <Char> i got a question
10:47:17  <Char> in the DB XL train set
10:47:26  <Char> there are wagons which are different in length
10:47:39  <Char> they are not half a tile long but a little shorter or longer
10:48:01  <TheMask97> lol :)
10:48:05  <Char> how do i know how long my train is with such wagons?
10:48:07  <Char> i mean
10:48:13  <Char> how do in know if it fits into a station?
10:48:21  <Char> which is for example 6 tiles long
10:48:32  <Rubidium> you see that number thingy in the depot?
10:48:34  <keyweed_> look at your train listing and compare it to one of your standard length trains?
10:48:48  <Char> i do see that number thingy, yes
10:48:51  <Rubidium> divide that by 2 rounding upwards and you know how many tiles it is
10:49:04  <Char> no
10:49:12  <Char> cause it just counts the wagons
10:49:19  <Char> but if the wagons are different in length
10:49:35  *** fjb_ is now known as fjb
10:49:36  <Char> i got a 9-wagon train which is definitely shorter than another 10-wagon train
10:49:54  <Char> aeh
10:49:55  <Char> longer
10:54:31  <Rubidium> Char: ?
10:55:01  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: talking about "hidden" features :p
10:55:50  <Celestar> stupid phone polls :S
10:56:20  <Rubidium> Celestar: <- the answer to phone polls
10:56:29  <Gekz> Rubidium: what platform is that?
10:56:41  <Char> eird
10:56:44  <Char> weird
10:56:50  <Char> but thanks Rubidium
10:59:23  <TrueBrain> it streams really poor Rubidium .... :(
10:59:49  *** helb [~helb@] has joined #openttd
11:00:06  <Celestar> Rubidium: hilarious
11:01:08  <Celestar> this one apparently wanted to sell diet food or something. Her: "Are you male or female". Me: "What do I sound like?". Her: "Male". Me: "Good. so let's suppose I'm male". "How tall are you?" "1755 millimeters" . "er what?" .. "1.755 meters" "ok .. then what's your weight?" ..
11:01:51  <Celestar> "You mean my weight or my mass" "Mass, then" "Well, that depends" "on what?" "On my velocity" "I don't understand" "Clearly" "<beep beep beep>"
11:02:03  <TrueBrain> nasty :p

11:35:27  <TrueBrain> hehe
11:37:39  <petern> of course, now i have a spare 80GB IDE drive
11:39:00  <Rubidium> use it for swap ;)
11:39:11  <TrueBrain> lol
11:39:17  <TrueBrain> I don't even have a swap ... :p
11:39:31  <Rubidium> then you can run lighttpd unattended on it for a few weeks ;)
11:39:37  <TrueBrain> hahahaha :)
11:39:53  <Rubidium> or use it for apache's rewrite logs
11:40:14  <Celestar> apache isn't that hungry, at least for me
11:40:24  <TrueBrain> Apache is VERY hungry
11:40:26  <TrueBrain> in general
11:40:33  * petern is running lighttpd... :o
11:40:48  <TrueBrain> and lighttpd is for us, because of the amount of requests per second, and his cache handler :p
11:41:04  <Celestar> heh
11:41:58  <Rubidium> Celestar: Apache's rewrite logs can fairly easily cause a denial-of-service
11:42:10  <SpComb> so disable rewrite logs
11:42:17  <SpComb> or more percisely, don't forget to turn them off
11:42:20  * SpComb wonders if he has them turned on
11:42:41  <Celestar> don't rewrite :P
11:42:44  <Rubidium> rewrite logs grow about 20 times faster than the access logs
11:45:00  <TrueBrain> Rubidium: but I guess you can disable all logs for WT2 anyway :p
11:45:32  <Celestar> has there been any contact with Mihamix btw?
11:45:33  <SpComb> I've never used lighty's caching
11:45:43  <TrueBrain> Celestar: plenty; why you ask?
11:45:45  <SpComb> but the HTTP proxy loads everything into memory, which is silly
11:45:49  <Celestar> TrueBrain: just wondering
11:45:53  <Celestar> @seen Mihamix
11:45:53  <DorpsGek> Celestar: Mihamix was last seen in #openttd 41 weeks, 2 days, 15 hours, 24 minutes, and 15 seconds ago: <MiHaMiX> s/t$/d/
11:45:55  <TrueBrain> SpComb: you use it, if you want it or not
11:45:57  <Celestar> cuz of that (=
11:46:16  <TrueBrain> Celestar: hehe :) We arranged everything that was needed :)
11:46:23  <SpComb> TrueBrain: iirc, my lighty doesn't do any caching
11:46:27  <SpComb> of content, at least
11:46:39  <TrueBrain> SpComb: it does; it caches the content before sending it to the client
11:46:43  <TrueBrain> then it frees it again
11:46:49  <SpComb> hmm
11:46:54  <TrueBrain> but if you have 100 people requesting 100 files, you have those files in your cache
11:46:55  <TrueBrain> or memory
11:46:56  <SpComb> what content? Some cgi?
11:46:58  <TrueBrain> what ever youw ant to call it ;)
11:47:02  <TrueBrain> any file
11:47:17  <TrueBrain> problem is that it never frees that memory (as it can't)
11:47:33  <TrueBrain> so when you get 1000 people in 1 sec, it uses, say, 100 MiB of RAM
11:47:33  <TrueBrain> now when it stays below 1000 people, you are fine
11:47:35  <SpComb> it would be very stupid of lighty to load the entire contents of every file into it's own memory
11:47:39  <TrueBrain> but if you get 2000 people later, it grows
11:47:40  <SpComb> as the kernel does that already
11:48:43  <TrueBrain> it tries to mmap most things, as far as I understand
11:48:52  <TrueBrain> but proxy requests it obvious can't :)
11:49:21  <SpComb> ah, you're talking about lighty proxing requests to another server, not serving it up from the filesystem?
11:49:47  <TrueBrain> I believe only static file serving is unaffected, yes
11:49:55  <TrueBrain> (and that even depends on your mode ;))
11:50:02  <SpComb> right, I thought you were talking about local static files
11:51:02  <TrueBrain> there are 3 modes I believe for static files
11:51:09  <TrueBrain> mmap, some kernel passthrough, and a buffer method
11:51:16  <TrueBrain> the first two should be fine .. the last not ;)
11:51:41  <SpComb> <-- that's the default backend
11:52:20  <SpComb> but those all handle only MEM_CHUNK and FILE_CHUNKs, and I guess HTTP request proxying is handled by MEM_CHUNKs
11:52:26  <SpComb> -> don't use lighttpd as a http proxy, it sucks at it
11:53:05  <TrueBrain> it works just fine; just it consumes a terrible amount of memory if you are out of luck
11:53:50  <SpComb> if you download a 700MB file through a lighttpd-proxy, it consumes 700MB of memory
11:54:02  <TrueBrain> (and the amount of hits on the httpd is a bit .. insane, for OpenTTD ;))
11:54:34  <TrueBrain> not in 1.5
11:54:41  <TrueBrain> (I dunno about 1.4)
11:58:02  <TrueBrain> Redmine is a nice bugtracker :)
12:01:54  <TrueBrain> <- finally found the description of the problem :)
12:04:35  <TrueBrain> but SpComb, maybe you are right, and we should place yet an other httpd in front of apache and lighttpd (and with that, in front of gitweb, hgweb, tracd, and some others)
12:04:41  *** mikl [] has joined #openttd
12:04:45  <TrueBrain> then again ... hgweb and tracd leak in the same way
12:05:02  <TrueBrain> www-data 24010  0.1 14.6 368752 117016 ?       S    Oct19  25:36 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/tracd
12:05:08  <TrueBrain> www-data 27295  0.1 15.8 264232 126984 ?       Ss   Sep27  56:46 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/hg serve
12:05:26  <TrueBrain> tracd is running for 11 days, and using 117MiB of RAM ...
12:05:53  <TrueBrain> burst-malloc-no-free approach :p
12:06:11  <TrueBrain> who needs a garbage collector anyway ..
12:06:57  <petern> SMART Usage Attribute: 194 Temperature_Celsius changed
12:06:57  <petern> from 122 to 126
12:07:01  <petern> that is clearly a lie
12:07:08  <TrueBrain> petern: or it is REALLY hot in there
12:07:15  <SmatZ> :-)
12:07:19  <TrueBrain> petern: you can bake an egg on that thing!
12:07:32  <TrueBrain> 145 of 423 packages emerged ... sigh ...
12:07:47  <petern> hddtemp says ~25 deg C
12:08:02  <SmatZ> TrueBrain: enjoy your emerge -e world ;-)
12:08:14  <TrueBrain> what does -e do ..
12:08:22  <TrueBrain> but no, emerging @kdebase and friends (4.1)
12:09:07  <TrueBrain> emptytree ... lol
12:09:39  <SmatZ> :)
12:09:52  <SmatZ> reemerges everything in your system
12:10:01  <TrueBrain> I wonder when ever that is useful :p
12:10:02  <SpComb> if you're doing domain-based-hosting across multiple daemons, then a dedicated proxy makes sense
12:10:05  <SmatZ> good when you upgrade gcc or glibc or so
12:10:11  <SmatZ> or change CFLAGS
12:10:16  *** NukeBuster [~wouter@] has joined #openttd
12:10:17  <SpComb> or just run everything with lighttpd and FastCGI
12:10:30  <TrueBrain> SpComb: most things are
12:10:54  <TrueBrain> a few things are proxied away, like WT2 (on different VPS), and some stuff that only works under apache
12:11:08  <TrueBrain> then it turned out hg and fastcgi leak even more
12:11:11  <TrueBrain> so that was proxied too
12:11:20  <TrueBrain> then trac had the same issue (python fastcgi module problem)
12:11:24  <TrueBrain> so proxied too
12:11:29  <TrueBrain> (most things are = most things were)
12:11:32  <SpComb> heh
12:11:40  <TrueBrain> gitweb is the only one doing its job right
12:12:00  <TrueBrain> django had the same work .. but then again: also python
12:12:09  <TrueBrain> so now we have more proxies then fastcgi ;)
12:12:11  <SpComb> it would be interesting to know what's causing it
12:12:19  <TrueBrain> Python garbage collector fucking up
12:12:44  <SpComb> maybe
12:12:48  <TrueBrain> no, I am sure
12:12:49  *** lobster_MB [~michielbr@] has quit [Quit: COCKBUSTER SLEEP MODE]
12:12:55  <SpComb> fucking up in what way?
12:13:02  <TrueBrain> not freeing up the memory
12:13:06  <TrueBrain> slowly eating more and more memory
12:13:09  <SpComb> cyclical references?
12:13:13  <TrueBrain> (EVERY page load increased the memory with 12 kib :p)
12:13:24  <TrueBrain> kiB
12:13:42  <TrueBrain> the thread instance is never considered free'd
12:13:44  <SpComb> I'm just sure it's possible to write python code that doesn't exhibit those problems
12:13:48  <TrueBrain> so a missing DelRef() I guess :p
12:14:03  <SpComb> so it would be interesting to know exactly what is going wrong
12:14:06  <TrueBrain> I couldn't find a fastcgi module that didn't showed the same problem
12:14:35  <TrueBrain> well, wsgi
12:14:37  <TrueBrain> but okay ;)

12:20:20  <TrueBrain> I wonder that in general
12:32:02  <Celestar> life. sucks.
12:32:57  <CIA-5> OpenTTD: rubidium * r14547 /trunk/src/ (oldpool.h oldpool_func.h order_cmd.cpp): -Fix: order pool seemed to look full when it was not as it only checked whether it was possible to allocate a new block of pool items instead of checking for free pool items.
12:33:45  <petern> hm
12:34:20  <mikl> Let us eat Cake(PHP) and drink Java, before the Python eats us

12:35:05  <NukeBuster> is there any way to supress error messages from a docommand?
12:35:35  <Rubidium> why would you want to do that?
12:35:42  <NukeBuster> as soon as it hits an error it gives a general error and stops resuming the function
12:36:03  <Rubidium> huh?
12:36:40  <NukeBuster> Im busy with the diagonal clearing patch... but discoverd for the rectangular clearing that the same stuff was also being handled by docommand
12:36:53  <ln> *I'm
12:37:11  <NukeBuster> but when i use docommand in a loop.... it doesn't return to my loop when it hits an error...
12:38:05  <NukeBuster> I'll upload a screenshot
12:39:23  <NukeBuster> where does it put that in linux?
12:40:32  *** lobster_MB [] has joined #openttd
12:40:35  <SmatZ>
12:40:42  <SmatZ> ahh screenshot...
12:40:45  <SmatZ> I don't know
12:40:45  <NukeBuster> :)
12:41:44  <Gekz> ~/.openttd/Screenshots
12:41:45  <Gekz> afaik
12:42:01  <eMJay> Gekz and NukeBuster, that's where mine go
12:42:25  <SmatZ> mine do to ~/.openttd
12:42:32  <NukeBuster> hidden
12:42:48  <eMJay> NukeBuster: unless you're pressing the printscrn button , in which case it should go to the clipboard...
12:43:06  <eMJay> (although, gnome prompts me where I want to save screen shots....)
12:43:12  <NukeBuster> no I used ctrl-s
12:43:16  <NukeBuster> got it
12:45:45  <NukeBuster>
12:45:55  <NukeBuster>
12:46:36  <SmatZ> AddCost sets CmdFailed iirc
12:46:41  <SmatZ> so maybe it is the problem
12:47:46  <NukeBuster> can I undo that somehow?
12:47:58  <NukeBuster> because it replaced this code which should not be nessecery
12:48:07  <NukeBuster>
12:48:19  <NukeBuster> because docommand already checks if there is enough money
12:49:35  <Rubidium> NukeBuster: the original code clears as much as it can, the "new" code clears all or nothing
12:50:19  <NukeBuster> yeah thats true
12:50:29  <NukeBuster> but thats why i want to supress that error msg
12:51:28  <ln> *that's
12:51:38  <NukeBuster> it's almost the same code in cmd_levelland
12:51:44  <NukeBuster> *cmdlevelland
12:51:54  <petern> also
12:52:03  <petern> *suppress, *message
12:52:08  <NukeBuster>
12:52:11  <dih> ln: that behaviour got people banned yesterday
12:52:16  <NukeBuster> Thanks :)
12:52:36  <petern> that was yesterday, this is today
12:52:40  <ln> dih: I'm safe.
12:53:11  <SmatZ> NukeBuster: use cost.AddCost(DoCommand(blabla).GetCost) or so
12:53:45  <SmatZ> or yeah, use if (CmdFailed(ret)) continue
12:53:52  <SmatZ> but this way you set CmdFailed
12:54:02  <NukeBuster> ok
12:54:08  *** Slowpoke [] has joined #openttd
12:54:33  <NukeBuster> if that works it would still save 10 lines
12:54:37  <NukeBuster> of duplication
12:54:42  * dih steps aside
12:55:00  <SmatZ> Slowpoke is slow
12:55:15  <dih> :-)
12:55:57  <SmatZ> [13:53:11] <SmatZ> NukeBuster: use cost.AddCost(DoCommand(blabla).GetCost) or so <== probably bad solution
12:56:04  * dih shuffles the chars and finds pokeslow
12:56:11  <SmatZ> :-)
12:56:15  <SmatZ> hehe
12:56:16  *** welshdragon [~vista@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
12:56:28  <NukeBuster> so this should give the error through also? cost.AddCost(ret);
12:56:50  <NukeBuster> it should be cost.AddCost(ret.GetCost); ?
12:56:57  <SmatZ> if ret failed then, this will make cost failed too
12:57:03  <SmatZ> if ret didn't fail, then it's ok
12:57:18  <SmatZ> [13:53:45] <SmatZ> or yeah, use if (CmdFailed(ret)) continue <== this way you won't add failed ret
12:57:38  <SmatZ> sorry gtg

12:57:46  <NukeBuster> cya
12:57:51  <Slowpoke> what? :o I'm not slow!
12:58:20  <NukeBuster> i thought that skipped to the next loop?

13:31:16  <NukeBuster> is it possible to force this when calling a DoCommand?
13:31:32  <Belugas> it looks like code from OpenTTD to me, but out of context, it could be anything :)
13:31:52  <NukeBuster> posted the question 5 min earlier
13:31:54  <NukeBuster> sorry
13:32:21  <NukeBuster> it should check the available money, shouldn't it?
13:34:48  <Char> i feel so unmotivated... :/
13:34:52  <Celestar> he
13:34:54  <Celestar> welcome to the club
13:34:55  <Belugas> NukeBuster, i'm sorry, but is it a diff or is it the actual code?
13:35:07  <NukeBuster> actual code
13:35:35  <NukeBuster> it's from the DoCommand function
13:36:01  <NukeBuster> I was trying to fight some duplicated code... because it looks like DoCommand checks available money itself
13:36:27  <Belugas> Char, have you step over your stupidity mode of yesterday actually had a go at reading the forums on ECS?
13:37:12  *** lobster_MB [] has quit [Quit: COCKBUSTER SLEEP MODE]
13:37:24  <Char> Belugas: i found out everything i need, yes
13:37:28  <Belugas> NukeBuster, am i under the impression that you think that all commands are money related?
13:37:36  <Belugas> good, Char :) proud of you
13:38:50  *** glx [] has joined #openttd
13:38:51  *** mode/#openttd [+v glx] by ChanServ
13:39:04  <NukeBuster> no they probably aren't
13:39:38  <NukeBuster> but the line !CheckCompanyHasMoney(res)) gives me the idea that the function does have the check for it...
13:40:23  <Char> Belugas: i am proud of me as well :P
13:40:28  <Rubidium> NukeBuster: any idea how complex the clear function actually is w.r.t. to payment?
13:40:29  <Char> no, actually not, but whatever
13:40:30  <Belugas> and what do you see just 2-3 lines above, NukeBuster?
13:40:59  <NukeBuster> checks if not bankruptand if not cost query?
13:41:26  <NukeBuster> but the _docommand_recursive stuff strikes me...
13:43:48  <Belugas> So it seems yu have not yet grasp all the internals of the command handling :)
13:43:56  <NukeBuster> Rubidium: Well the 3 lines i just removed seemed to do nothing with cost estimation, the only problem now is that when there isn't enough money the command doesn't fail... And i thought i had seen that in the DoCommand function.
13:44:35  <NukeBuster> you have spam on your btw.
13:45:03  <Rubidium> no kidding ;)
13:45:44  <NukeBuster> but the DoCommand is or isn't able to check if there is enough money available?
13:47:22  <NukeBuster>
13:48:25  <Rubidium> clearing land is a tricky function for which cost estimation is basically impossible
13:48:33  <Char> btw
13:48:43  <Char> has any of you guys ever played locomotion?
13:49:24  <NukeBuster> strange thing though if _docommand_recursive ==0 -> error; then it gets 1 added; then it checks for _docommand_recursive==1
13:49:28  <NukeBuster> which cannot happen
13:49:40  <NukeBuster> because if you had set it to 1 it would be 2 at the check

13:52:35  <NukeBuster> I'm trying to reduce code duplication by the way.
13:52:59  <Rubidium> FYI: line 400 clears the error state
13:53:17  <NukeBuster> ah
13:53:34  <NukeBuster> so I'd just set _docommand_recursive to 0 then
13:53:38  <Char> Belugas: i tried it as well, but for some reason it did not have the same feel
13:53:53  <Rubidium> NukeBuster: no, you should not touch that variable at all

13:56:50  *** ecke_ [] has quit [Quit: ecke_]
13:59:37  <Belugas> Char, one thing i noted: Locomotion was aimed at been more realistic then TTD.  Could be.  But it was also less fun.  I think that's what started my "reflection" on realism
14:00:27  <ln> *than
14:00:36  *** Frostregen [] has joined #openttd
14:01:00  <ln> Locomotion had some nice improvements, but then it is too much like building rollercoasters.
14:01:48  <Celestar> yeah, and many things sucked ass
14:02:07  <Celestar> Belugas: Locomotion was more realistic? where?
14:02:34  <Celestar> I didn't find anything that was more realistic in Locomotion
14:02:43  *** ecke_ [] has joined #openttd
14:02:47  <Celestar> except maybe real curves. Which was about the only good thing.
14:03:10  <Belugas> well.. mostly the graphics indeed
14:03:15  <Celestar> yeah
14:03:22  <Celestar> which didn't really look all that great :P
14:03:29  <Celestar> there weren't even depots
14:04:19  <Celestar> the pathfinder was worse than anything ottd ever had, and the AI sucked even more than in TTO
14:07:05  <ln> list of nice things in Locomotion, compared to (O)TTD: underground tracks and stations, underwater tunnels, the local/express setting for individual trains
14:07:35  *** ecke_ [] has quit []
14:07:38  <Celestar> 1) yes but interface sucked ass, 2) ok, 3) nice
14:08:11  <Celestar> and a 384*384 map slowed my Athlon 1800+ to a crawl back then.
14:08:12  <ln> the UI for building underground stuff sucks badly if there are buildings above or near. also true for building tramways.

14:12:13  <Celestar> in openttd, we could just have an additional viewport for underground view ;)
14:12:21  <Celestar> which is coordinate-locked with the main viewport or so
14:12:28  <Celestar> so you can see where you're at (=
14:12:45  <ln> yeah, a separate underground mode would have helped a lot.
14:13:35  <ln> i was kind of hoping they would release an update to fix undergound UI, but i guess there isn't one.
14:14:16  <ln> the first (and only?) update released fixes some severe issues such as german version showing "Insert CD" in english, or something like that.
14:15:48  <Celestar> yeah
14:15:57  <Celestar> but I loved the tracks
14:16:03  <Celestar> they looked like real tracks
14:16:11  <Celestar> multi-tile curves :D
14:16:27  <ln> also stations on bridges is a nice feature.
14:18:42  *** batti5 [~batti5@] has joined #openttd
14:22:07  <Celestar> yeah
14:22:19  <Celestar> or below bridge, even though we could do that now
14:22:40  <Celestar> we just need to graphical restrictions for those bridges and/or stations
14:26:15  <Celestar> same for crossing bridges
14:26:21  <Celestar> which might really add to the game :D

14:45:14  <TrueBrain> hehe
14:45:19  <TrueBrain> NukeBuster: it has no additional value really ..
14:46:40  <NukeBuster> progress bar releaves stress :P
14:46:52  <NukeBuster> makes people more patient
14:47:32  <TrueBrain> in this case I agree with glx: the list is on alphabet, so just try to 'count' to Z, and you are fine too
14:47:49  <NukeBuster> nice idea
14:48:47  <glx> and complinig openttd is not that slow
14:48:49  <Belugas> i wonder if anyone has tested my version of fund_town stuff...
14:48:52  <NukeBuster> true
14:48:58  <TrueBrain> 'not that slow' .. lol :p
14:49:17  <glx> compared to wxwidgets or even gcc
14:49:27  <thingwath> comparing to any larger C++ KDE application... it is extremely fast :o)
14:49:47  <TrueBrain> glx: why would OpenTTD compare to GCC? :p
14:49:48  <TrueBrain> haha
14:50:06  <TrueBrain> I mean ... my drinking glass is smaller than an office building
14:50:12  <TrueBrain> nevertheless, my drinking glass is HUGE
14:50:25  <TrueBrain> (0.5L in this case)
14:50:33  <NukeBuster> found a bug in 14539
14:50:39  <glx> upgrade :)
14:50:47  <glx> then retry
14:50:50  <NukeBuster> cost estimation on level area returns a blank box
14:51:12  <NukeBuster> thought it was my doing
14:51:23  <NukeBuster> so tried a clean checkout
14:51:23  <TrueBrain> 305 / 423 ...
14:51:36  <TrueBrain> 1 per minute on avage ..
14:51:44  <TrueBrain> leaves almost 2 hours on the clock ..
14:51:47  <NukeBuster> compiling....
14:54:32  <NukeBuster> [15:48:49] <glx> and complinig openttd is not that slow <- lol
14:54:45  <NukeBuster> still busy
14:55:19  <NukeBuster> bug is still there
14:55:28  <NukeBuster> I'm going to try and fix it
14:56:26  <TrueBrain> good luck :)
15:03:59  <NukeBuster> return (cost.GetCost() == 0) ? CMD_ERROR : cost;
15:04:03  <NukeBuster> seems to be the problem
15:04:21  <NukeBuster> the code never lets a failed command through though
15:05:12  *** yorick [] has joined #openttd

15:06:11  <NukeBuster>

15:06:57  <NukeBuster> not sure if it is the best fix, but failed DoCommands get tackled earlier

19:32:38  <Belugas> with a few props of their own
19:33:41  <Belugas> newobjects can be misleading as a name
19:33:59  <Belugas> it may be more related as new-landscape-objects
19:34:02  <Belugas> maybe
19:34:26  <yorick> you mean it adds new vehicles?
19:34:33  <Eddi|zuHause> so you are just aiming at eyecandy, and not planning for it to be extendible in any way?
19:34:42  * Belugas is swayed by Local Authority
19:35:30  <Belugas> it has been extended a bit, at least in our heads.  but it's not a revolutionnary new stuff-do-it-all
19:36:30  <frosch123> that stuff will follow with NewRealism
19:36:46  <frosch123> (part of ottd 1.0)

19:37:00  <Belugas> lol at frosch123 :D
19:37:34  <yorick> the half-buried vertical cars will be washed away by sea and my country side will be clean again
19:40:04  <Belugas> Eddi|zuHause, to answer you, it's based on unmovables.  SO think about light houses, statues and such.
19:40:14  <Belugas> frist draft is inded quite "clean"
19:41:09  <Belugas> but on the second "wave", we'll see about extending it to cargo awareness, maybe
19:41:14  <Belugas> or stuff like that
19:41:44  <Rubidium> newstuff?
19:41:53  <Belugas> yeah :)
19:42:04  <Rubidium> George's ESS ;)
19:42:13  <Belugas> antennas that will guide planes...
19:42:16  <Belugas> NOT
19:42:25  <Eddi|zuHause> well, what i am aiming at is a) a user interface, and b) (map) storage space to store aggregated tile structures (which could come from newobjects) and mix that with a movement automaton like in airports
19:43:23  <Eddi|zuHause> to get a generic newgrf way to define tiles that can be crossed by vehicles in certain ways, but are not stations
19:43:36  * Belugas would like to take whatever Eddi|zuHause took. Looks like good stuff ;)
19:45:20  <Eddi|zuHause> that could help to rather easily add stuff ranging from smooth highway curves over roundabouts to diagonal rail ramps or even doubletrack rail
19:45:41  <Belugas> that kind of object would be hard to represent, i think
19:45:58  <Eddi|zuHause> yes, i know i am always thinking at least 3 steps ahead of what is actually feasible :p
19:46:06  <Belugas> it would have to be made aware of nearby tiles, in a connection way, plus some rules inside
19:46:27  <Belugas> that's called been high, Eddi|zuHause ;)
19:46:50  <Eddi|zuHause> i hear that quite regularly :p
19:48:49  <Belugas> it's not impossible, everything is possible.  but let say time is something that might block quite a few good projects like yours
19:51:57  <Eddi|zuHause> i know that problem ;)
19:52:43  <Belugas> You do? Wait until you'll start working, for real... and have a wife and a kid!
19:53:02  <Belugas> then, you'll really know that proble :D

22:09:06  <baud> I am having trouble getting a setting (company_pw) to set correctly in ~/.openttd/openttd.cfg. Whenever I try to blank out the password it resets the password as what I initially set it at.
22:12:20  <baud> so no one can set a company password -_-;
22:13:29  <Rubidium> you were likely running openttd while changing the config file and then closing openttd reset it
22:14:11  <baud> probably

22:56:09  <welshdragon> if a string is {RED}{COMMA} does it need translating?
22:56:39  <SmatZ> I think it needs translating so it is counted as translated in stats :)
22:56:44  <SmatZ> but I may be very wrong
22:57:28  <welshdragon> hmm, it could break the string, that's all
22:57:45  <Sacro|Laptop> no
22:57:51  <Sacro|Laptop> {RED}{COMMA} is left
