tilmanRomster: sober again? ;)07:32
Romsterlol been sober for ages now07:33
Romsterfftw por ti messed witht he compiler flags to gain more speed07:34
*** AndrewB has joined #crux07:34
tilmanRomster: it's uncommon anyway07:34
Romsterif you really hate me messing with flags i'll remove all the flags and then add them flags to my private repo version...07:34
tilmani see that it's a library that gains from optimization07:34
caronot a lot of people use fftw in computer science. It's nice :)07:35
tilmanRomster: yeah, i'd rather see a less ricish version in _contrib_07:35
carois blas/lapack ported too ?07:35
caroa free lib that foes fft07:35
carofast Fourier transform07:36
Romsterthose optimsations i consider gainful without being restrictive07:36
Romsteror prone to breaking07:36
carotilman: what is annoying with that site is that I need to look at *all* the contributors to see all the packages07:37
caroisn't there a global list ?07:37
tilmanjust punch in the name of the software07:37
tilman-> there's two guys who have a port for it07:37
caroha, there's a search07:37
carothank you07:37
tilmanRomster: and i didn't say i hate you for it, ffs07:38
*** majorowl has joined #crux07:38
Romsterheh no :/07:39
Romsteri iddn't take it that way07:39
*** bd2_ has joined #crux07:40
*** bd2 has quit IRC07:41
Romstertilman, so you would prefer not to have Pkgfile optiomised ports in contrib? but only that of the projects intended optomise flags07:45
tilmani think ports should think twice before overriding cflags07:45
tilmanso yes, i think contrib/fftw should use whatever i specify in pkgmk.conf07:46
tilmanRomster: btw, i think you should use -march instead of -mtune07:46
Romsterany particuler reasion? -mtune optomises fir said cpu only and isn't so portable but faster for the said cpu its compiled on07:47
tilmandoesn't -march imply -mtune or something?07:48
Romsterhmm double checking07:48
*** bd2_ has quit IRC07:49
tilmanRedShift: fftw stands for "fastest fourier transform in the west" o_O :D07:49
Romster-mtune tunes to the spefic cpu while march only to the -march of the system07:51
Romstermtune also allows gcc to know that say a althon is a -i686 cpu so you don't have to speficy -march with -mtune07:52
tilmanRomster: alright07:52
tilmanRomster: i'll ask the guys what they think on tuesday and let you know07:53
Romsterso basicly restrict the program to the march cpu07:53
treach-march=athlon4 means i686? I kinda doubt that.07:53
Romsterwon't run on other but wll be more optomised07:53
tilmanseems funny07:53
tilmanwhy do i need to --enable-k707:53
Romsterwhatever arch the athlon4 is07:53
tilmancan't it detect my cpu?07:53
tilman(configure, not the port)07:54
caroit can07:54
carowell, potentially, there are autoconf commands for that07:54
RedShiftyou should use -march=i686 -mcpu=athlon07:54
tilmanwell yes07:54
Romstersome configures do some don't07:54
Romsteri just force it too07:54
tilmani meant whether it DOES it07:54
Romster-mcpu is depreacated07:54
Romsterin favor of -mtune07:55
RedShiftyeah that's what I meant but I couldn't remember it07:55
RedShift-march is for the machine architecture (i686 in the athlon case) and -mtune to optimize it for a specific processor07:56
treach" Moreover, specifying -march=cpu-type implies -mtune=cpu-type07:56
tilmanhey, sweet07:57
tilmani was right07:57
treachman gcc ftw.07:57
RedShiftthat is correct, but you can override that07:57
Romstereither use -march= for general arch use or use -mtune= for not portable but on the same cpu code and a increase in speed and smaller executables07:57
tilmanEOD? ;)07:57
RedShift-march is not portable07:57
*** sys0110 has joined #CRUX07:57
treachRedShift: who cares07:57
tilmanthat's the whole point of ports07:58
sys0110i still have troubles with lilo07:58
RedShiftfor example, if you compile it with -march=i686 you can't run your binary on a 386 processor07:58
tilmanone of them :)07:58
Romstermarch is portable onthe same arch type lile p3 and p407:58
treachit's not like the package it self will be very portable..07:58
RedShifthowever, if you compile it with -march=386 -mtune=athlon it will run on a 386, and if you are running it on an athlon processor it will take advantage of that07:58
sys0110i think it boots the root partiton as readonly !!!  and iw ant to add win to boot list07:58
Romsterbut for a compiled distro on the same pc why not use -mtune and gain more performance?07:59
tilmansys0110: correct07:59
tilmanit first mounts / ro07:59
tilmanand later re-mount it rw07:59
RomsterRedShift, hmm didn't know that one07:59
sys0110i dont get it07:59
tilmanRomster: proove that treach is wrong07:59
rxiRomster: what happens when i compile it on my sparc/parisc/ppc? :P07:59
RomsterRedShift, thought one overrided the other07:59
RedShiftRomster: no07:59
* Romster reads up07:59
sys0110when it boots i mean CRUX it tells me that it cant update thefstab as it is RO08:00
RedShiftRomster: you should see march as most significant and mtune as least significant08:00
sys0110any help here?08:00
RedShiftlike major and minor numbers08:00
Romsterwhich treach's question of the athlon4 not being i686?08:00
RomsterRedShift, ah k good point08:01
tilman<    treach> " Moreover, specifying -march=cpu-type implies  -mtune=cpu-type08:01
treachRomster: athlon4 IS NOT i686.08:01
RomsterRedShift, so it can be made to work on a wide range of processors08:01
treachIt's 686 COMPATIBLE08:01
RedShiftRomster: yes08:01
sys0110thats all to update the rc.conf?08:01
Romsteri have gcc's man page open for awhile checks it08:02
sys0110any 1 wanna help me ? or "thank you"08:02
treachsys0110: patience.08:02
RedShiftsys0110: there aren't any '1's here08:02
treachsys0110: you're a bit sparse with details.08:02
sys0110cuz i coulbnt boot the win from ysterday08:02
sys0110i couldnt open the IRC god dammit08:03
treachthen it was a no win situation, I guess. :D08:03
sys0110nah i mean windows08:03
Romstertreach, i don't see that in the man page..08:03
treachRomster: you know how to search?08:03
sys0110why didnt u choose grub as the default MBR bootloader?08:04
Romstertreach, yeah i do but that peace of information isnt int he man page!!08:04
sys0110why lilo?08:04
treachwhy not?08:04
treachRomster: it is.08:04
RedShiftRomster: -march implies -mtune if -mtune wasn't explicitly defined08:04
*** AV1611 has quit IRC08:04
treachRomster: or are you calling me a liar?08:04
treachI'd think twice if I were you if you're implying that I'm not telling the truth...08:05
sys0110do we have a war here? :D08:05
Romstertreach, i would assume that to be correct08:05
tilmanit's in my man page, too ;)08:05
*** RedShift has quit IRC08:06
treachsys0110: no just some stupid fuck who can't either spell nor read and calls people liars because they can't find the information they are pointed to.08:06
*** RedShift has joined #crux08:06
Romsterwhere abouts? i'm looking at the argumets of mtune and march08:06
RedShiftRomster: -march implies -mtune if -mtune wasn't explicitly defined08:06
sys0110calm down guys08:06
Romsteron 4.0.3 unless 4.1.2 has it08:06
tilmanIntel 386 and AMD x86-64 Options08:06
tilmanin that section08:06
tilman-march ...08:06
sys0110we are tuxers , we are the best08:06
RomsterRedShift, kind of gathered that after treach pointed that out08:07
*** rxi_ has joined #crux08:07
RedShiftah ok08:07
RedShiftit's because I got disconnected08:07
RedShiftI didn't think you saw it08:07
Romsterif it was inthe man page i missed that point08:07
sys0110after u finsih that issue just help me with the LILO08:07
Romsterso don't blame me for rtfm :P as i have looked numerious of times.08:08
sys0110is CRUX related to debian ?08:08
RedShiftsys0110: omfg08:08
Romsterso basicly i can just use -march=athon instead of i68608:08
Romsterdebian lmao08:08
Romsterno way08:08
RedShiftRomster: you can but that is not the recommended way08:08
sys0110ya uz apt-get similar to their Ports system :P08:08
RedShiftRomster: I remember linux saying that we shouldn't do it this way but I can't remember where I read that08:09
treachsys0110: you got that a bit wrong I guess. ;)08:09
treachWe are the ones with the port system.08:09
RomsterRedShift, hmm08:09
treachThey are using apt-get. D08:09
sys0110ya cuz i was really pissed off as i thought is realted to debian :D08:09
RedShiftyou all suck, debian ftw!08:09
RedShiftapt-get moooooo!08:09
sys0110hey , can i install grub?08:10
treachRedShift: yeah, right after they start linking in all deps you could possibly imagine, no matter how silly.08:10
sys0110instead of lilo?08:10
treachs starts/stops08:10
RedShiftsys0110: no you can't08:10
sys0110but the lilo sucks08:11
sys0110i love lilo08:11
*** rxi has quit IRC08:11
treachsys0110: of course you can, iirc it's even on the iso.08:11
sys0110but i dunno why it has problems?08:11
rehabdollWHERE IS THE BASICS?!?!08:11
RedShiftrehabdoll: somewhere between #ubuntu and #debian08:11
* treach don't understand why people seems so adverse to lilo.08:11
sys0110i cant do anything as the system is mounted as RO08:11
rehabdollpersonally i prefer grub08:12
Romsterlilo is da best08:12
sys0110i prefere LILO , but sometimes it sucks :D08:12
RedShiftI don't like lilo, grub allows on the fly editing and you don't have to run grub after you've updated your kernel08:12
treachsys0110: well, if that's so, you either did something wrong, or there is something wrong with your system.08:12
*** rxi_ has quit IRC08:12
rehabdollRedShift: exactly08:12
treachlilo doesn't just mount / RO w/o reason08:12
sys0110when i was  editing it08:12
Romsterlilo only sucks whne you forget to run /sbin/lilo but then thats the users idiotic fault08:12
RedShiftsys0110: you specified ro in the kernel commandline08:13
sys0110i read "read only" << what is that option?08:13
*** rxi has joined #crux08:13
sys0110what u mean?08:13
Romstersys0110, you can remount rw08:13
sys0110so u mean it is mounted as RO for ever?08:13
RedShiftsys0110: I have some ubuntu cd's, which one do you want? ppc, 386 or x86-64?08:13
RedShifthell take them all, what's the shipping address?08:13
sys0110every day i download over 2 linux cds08:14
Romstersys0110, its mounted as RO at bootup then gets remounted as RW08:14
Romsterif you look at the init scripts08:14
sys0110but why08:14
sys0110when its booting08:14
RedShiftsys0110: edit the kernel command line to mount your root read-write08:15
sys0110it says cant upadte the fsatb08:15
sys0110as it is ro08:15
rehabdollmount -o remount,rw /08:15
sys0110<RedShift> sys0110: edit the kernel command line to mount your root read-write << HOW ?08:15
Romsterwhy is it stuck in RO mode?08:15
RedShiftsys0110: you sure you don't want any of those ubuntu cd's?08:15
Romsterdid it just do a fsck?08:16
sys0110cuz it cant update the fstab08:16
rehabdollits probably ro in fstab08:16
sys0110<RedShift> sys0110: you sure you don't want any of those ubuntu cd's? what u mean?08:16
RedShiftyou do remember setting up lilo, right?08:16
RedShiftwell edit the configuration, where it says kernel=/yourkernel root=/dev/sda1 ro08:16
RedShiftchange that ro to rw08:16
sys0110: /dev/hda2        /           defaults       1   108:17
treachsys0110: boot on the CD, mount your root partition and edit your configfiles.08:17
sys0110<RedShift> well edit the configuration, where it says kernel=/yourkernel root=/dev/sda1 ro   < where is that fie?08:17
sys0110ya ya i know08:18
sys0110 i will reboot08:18
tilmanwhat's going on today!? :P08:18
sys0110c ya08:18
treachget rid of that "ro"08:18
RedShiftsys0110: you have to run lilo again08:18
sys0110and hey08:18
Romstertilman, how can i use -fomit-frame-pointer in pkgmk.conf and still allow the few programs that use -g for debug without -fomit-frame-pointer? unless the configure is intelagent.08:19
sys0110redshift i will take that cds for free :P08:19
tilmanyou explicitly tell it to mount / ro08:19
tilmanand wonder why it does mount it ro?08:19
sys0110lol salam08:19
Romsterchange ro to rw08:19
*** sys0110 has quit IRC08:19
Romstermust use defaults08:19
Romsterok i think i jsut made a noobie remark08:19
RedShiftman where were the days were you could expect SOME knowledge from people08:19
RedShiftbut now08:19
treachI wonder why he's having problems..08:20
RedShiftthey install linux like toasters08:20
tilmanif the program overrides your CFLAGS, it's a bug in the port08:20
treachRomster: unset CFLAGS?08:21
treachiirc mplayer uses/used some setting like that08:21
Romsterbut thats still messing with the CFLAGS in the Pkgfile08:21
treachno it isnt08:21
treachit's just telling pkgmk to not look at them.08:22
Romsterby removing them then it defaults to whats in the programs configure.08:22
tilmanif there's a good reason for doing it, go ahead08:22
tilmanand that's the case for mplayer08:22
RedShiftmplayer is very picky about which CFLAGS the compilation used08:22
Romsterand not what the end user intended in pkgmk08:22
tilmanRedShift: yeah08:22
Romsterwell i saw a good reason to alter fftw's CFLAGS08:22
Romsterclearly we need clearly definded guidelines on this..08:23
Romsternot ones that contrdict08:23
tilman"making it go faster is NOT a good reason"08:24
tilman"making it go faster" is NOT a good reason08:24
tilman_i_ decide how fast i want my packages08:24
tilmanvia /etc/pkgmk.conf08:24
tilmanthe next guy decides to user -O3 -omfgoptimize for firefox08:24
tilmanand makes it crash every 10 minutes08:25
muertohi, what port contains aiglx pkg?08:26
caro-omfgoptimize <-- nice one08:27
tilmanbut i think you asked the wrong question08:29
muertosure, im searching how to run beryl on crux08:30
tilmani think jaeger has ports for beryl in his repository08:31
tilmanand you'll need the xorg 7.2 ports08:32
tilmanwon't work with opt/x1108:32
muertook thanks08:32
*** the-ruediger has quit IRC08:33
Romsteridealily the cflags should be the programers responsability for optomisations, but not all even optomise as you know08:34
tilmanthat's why i put optimizations in pkgmk.conf08:34
tilman99% of all packages honour $CFLAGS08:35
Romsterwell i would not -O3 where i know it will break something08:35
tilmanor why do you think that most ports don't adjust CFLAGS? :)08:35
Romsterbit ok the user decides is a valid reasion08:36
RedShiftman we just moved from rack08:36
RedShiftbefore we were in the lower half of a rack08:36
RedShiftnow we're in the upper half of a rack08:36
RedShiftand the temperatures are 7°c higher08:37
RedShiftbah :-(08:37
rehabdollwhats the ambient temp?08:37
Romsteri id on't trade reliability for speed08:39
*** sys0110 has joined #CRUX08:39
sys0110so i can use grub08:40
treachwhy? Your problems are self-inflicted08:40
sys0110i have problems wiht it08:40
sys0110iam depressed08:40
treachno, it does exactly what you told it to.08:41
treachIf you hadn't been so hasty you'd have sloved your problems by now, or rather you had gotten a vital clue.08:41
treachs sloved/solved08:41
tilmanYOU tell it to mount / ro08:42
Romstertilman, just wondering what is right and wrong with gstreamer-plugins-ffmpeg i force change -O? to -O2 else it breaks the compile if its set to -Os or -O308:44
treachsince O2 is system default, I don't see the problem :>08:45
Romstershould i allow the users to get it to break and they keep asking why it won't build, or keep to what its doing now.08:45
treach"If you mess with your CFLAGS, you're on your own."08:46
treachRomster: do you remember the basic theme of CRUX?08:46
treachsys0110: Since I'm in a happy mood today, read from here -> to where you leave in a hurry.08:49
sys0110wow u r in the mood08:50
sys0110but iam not08:50
Romsterthen again breaking is alot diferent to optomising.08:50
sys0110AndrewB is The MAn :P08:50

jjpkMain courses done, research project in the works and then off to the mandatory exchange abroad.11:39
tilmani can't believe march is almost over11:39
RedShiftand it's almost a year since I finished school11:39
jjpkmarch is not even half way, what the hell are you talking about...11:39
tilmanit's only three weeks!11:40
jjpkRedShift: I just love it how this business school tells you self-employment is the devil11:41
RedShiftjjpk: how so? :-D11:41
jjpk"big corporations are the way forward!!11zomg111!"11:41
jjpk...right, so that I can get fired 6 months after I would even get in.11:41
RedShiftsounds like some american lecture to me11:41
jjpkThis department of the business school does not have permanent staff, most of the professors and lecturers are american.11:42
jjpkBig surprise eh11:42
RedShiftmiddle class is what makes a country wealthy11:42
jjpkMost of the students here are chickenshit, feel good hippies who want no responsibility11:43
RedShiftwell why do you want responsibility11:43
jjpkIn that case, yes I agree that big corporations are the way forward.11:43
RedShiftresponsibility is what gets you into trouble :-D11:43
tilmanwhy did you get self-employed then?11:44
jjpkResponsibility gets you no trouble if you know what you are doing.11:44
*** mrks has joined #crux11:44
jjpkIndeed, you should know, you are self-employed.11:44
RedShiftbecause I'm to stubborn to have a boss, and I want to get rich, and don't have a decent diploma to get rich as an employee11:44
jjpkPoint 2) I fervently believe in the do-it-yourself work ethic11:45
jjpkYou don't need a boss if you are disciplined and know what you want.11:46
RedShiftvery true11:46
RedShiftin this world, if you don't do it yourself, it looks like nothing11:46
RedShiftI always have to complain to get things done right11:46
jjpkBesides, bosses often get paid too much just to breathe over your neck.11:46
RedShiftyou have no idea how frustrating that is11:47
jjpkThat is a waste of money in my opinion :D11:47
jjpkSame in Finland, nobody is motivated and things get done only when you persistently bitch at them.11:47
RedShiftlike the facility I'm colocating at11:47
RedShiftI spent two months complaining they should get their new network up and running11:47
RedShiftnow that's done11:47
RedShiftI've been complaing for three weeks the reverses are not in order11:48
RedShiftin fact11:48
RedShiftthey don't even have delegation set on their netblock11:48
jjpkAll too familiar :D11:48
RedShiftI just makes me want to build my own datacenter and do it RIGHT11:48
RedShiftbut I haven't got ? 50 000 000 on spare so I have to wait a bit11:49
jjpkYou have just hit the jackpot on why I don't like organizations :D11:49
jjpkRedShift: by the way, are you incorporated or do you just do business as an individual?11:49
RedShiftjjpk: I'm not saying all are evil11:49
jjpkThey are inefficient too often, that is my complaint11:49
RedShiftI work with companies that are excellent11:49
RedShiftbusiness as individual11:50
RedShiftI do webhosting/colocation on individual basis11:50
RedShiftI always want to be around the companies that don't really care about money11:50
RedShiftbecause they pay me to get their stuff done right11:50
RedShiftand when I do stuff11:51
RedShiftI do it good11:51
jjpkI'm still considering my options, it would make a bit more sense to create a private stock company because I have a few interested people as well.11:51
RedShiftbut it has it's price11:51
jjpkThe opposite is true here.11:51
jjpkIt's all about the money, fuck everything else.11:51
jjpkTruly disgusting attitude.11:51
*** bd2 has joined #crux11:51
RedShiftthat's why I don't attract private persons11:51
RedShiftthey always go bla bla wtf ? 70 per year for 50 megs of space11:52
RedShiftwhen you try them that's what you need to cover costs + deliver the excellent service you are providing11:52
RedShiftthey have no ears11:52
tilmangetting rich would be cool11:52
tilmanwork half a day11:52
tilmanand spend the other half hacking11:52
jjpktilman: yep, in the corporate world you don't get that.11:53
RedShifteven my cheapest webhosting account is ? 55 excluding VAT11:53
jjpkIt's either work 24/7, or no job.11:53
RedShiftI mean come on, ? 5511:53
RedShifthow can they bitch about that11:53
RedShiftand that's for an ENTIRE year!11:53
tilmanno idea what the prices are at atm RedShift ;)11:54
RedShiftI don't care about the compitition11:54
RedShiftI say my price, I clearly define what they get11:54
RedShiftbut don't come bitching to me afterwards, I delivered what was asked11:55
RedShiftthat's why I like big companies11:55
RedShiftthey don't care about the money11:55
RedShiftthey want service11:55
*** mrks_ has quit IRC11:55
RedShiftI'm thinking of disallowing private persons11:56
RedShiftI've seen what trouble they bring with them (at the place I used to work)11:57
* JKnife just got back11:57
jjpkhaha. rather place them on the backburner and focus on company customers.11:58
RedShiftI still accept private persons though11:58
RedShiftthey make good mouth-to-mouth11:58
jjpkIn my experience what really cause problems is again not knowing exactly what you want.11:59
Romsterjjpk, or what they want11:59
RedShiftRomster: that's also true12:00
jkrDoes anyone know of problems with ISOLINUX when booting from the install CD?12:00
Romsteryo jkr12:00
jjpkI was talking as an individual on this one.12:00
jjpkToo often the potential customer is clueless about what can be done and either go nuts when you explain, or expect heaven and earth on a silver plate.12:00
JKnifejkr: no problems here tieh the i586 cd12:00
*** RedShift has quit IRC12:00
*** RedShift has joined #crux12:00
Romsterya but the reverse can oftern happen when they arn't clear on what they want12:00
jkrIt's a P4 CPU, so there shouldn't be a problem with the i686 optimization12:01
jkrIt looks like it doesn't even load the kernel12:01
jkrIt completly freezes at the "ISOLINUX" message12:01
RedShiftpentium4 sucks12:02
RedShiftget a real computer12:02
guaquajkr: try disabling acpi & co12:03
jkrIn BIOS?12:04
jjpkYes, then it will be properly off.12:04
RedShiftimage spam12:04
RedShiftit doesn't even contain something usefull12:05
RedShiftwhat's the point?12:05
jkrWell there's no other way since ISOLINUX doesn't even make it to the boot prompt12:05
jjpkRedShift: through e-mail? at least spamprobe does a good job in removing it.12:05
jkrspamprobe is fine12:05
RedShiftjjpk: I use SMTP blacklists. I only get 2 or 3 spammails a day12:06
jkrBest spam-filter I've ever had12:06
jjpkI would as well, but I cannot run my own smtp :|12:06
jjpkThe braindead ISP of mine really likes to ruin for everyone.12:07
RedShift994 mails blocked since 5 march12:07
RedShiftnot bad huh :-D12:07
RedShifttoday 24 mails12:07
jjpkRough estimate, but I get around 30-50 spam e-mails a day and usually they get thrown into the spam folder. :p12:09
jjpkGood enough.12:09
RedShiftif I go through the email logs, the cruft I find in there... horrible12:09
jkrIs the ISOLINUX stuff in any way modified for CRUX?12:10
jkrOr is it the original code?12:10
jjpkI find it terribly funny how the developed countries mostly block all useful ports, yet the majority of shit mail I get comes from ip ranges in the developing world.12:10
RedShiftthey should block port 25 to anyone who doesn't need it12:11
RedShiftthat means residential customers12:11
RedShiftthat would like kill 90% of the spam12:11
jjpkWhen they do that, they block the opportunity from users who know what they are doing.12:11
jjpkThe isp's get all bureaucratic on you :D12:12
jjpk"The rules say NO"12:12
RedShiftbut they should allow to open them, opt-in12:12
RedShiftmy ISP blocks all < 102412:13
RedShiftand I have no problems with that12:13
jjpkThat is where isps have screwed up big time.12:13
RedShiftbecause it keeps alot of crap out12:13
jjpkFor you its not really a problem because you have dedicated servers under your control.12:13
RedShiftnow that you mention that12:14
RedShiftI do make alot of use of them12:14
RedShiftI wonder what I would do if I didn't have tham12:14
RedShifttrue true12:14
RedShiftlike I said, opt-in12:14
jjpkCursing your isp to high hell and back :D12:14
RedShiftor even create a simple web interface for the customers12:15
RedShiftlike a mini firewall for everyone12:15
RedShiftthey would need a ton of processing power though :-D12:15
Romsteryeah add yet another firewall to the hell of 'why dosn't this work how do i edit that' to customers12:15
jjpkProbably not too much, users often do not have a damn clue.12:16
jjpkI just love the projection this business school has about technology "microsoft microsoft microsoft"12:18
jjpk"there are no alternatives" nice12:18
jjpkThen you wonder why innovation has been stiffled across the board.12:18
jjpkAll you get out of here is to be another member of the herd.12:18
RedShiftI had a microsoft doctrine at school too12:19
jjpkYou can *almost* hear the moos and the smell of shit.12:19
RedShiftI sure teached them12:19
jjpkThe first thing we had when the program started was to take "computer tests"12:20
RedShiftmy greatest act was inserting an ubuntu cd in all the cdromdrives of one class12:20
RedShiftyou should haven seen their faces12:20
jjpkzomg it gonna blow!12:20

RedShiftit makes then frightened12:22
Romsterthats why i quited that course years ago12:22
jjpkI have had problems with those "trainers" as long as I can remember.12:22
jjpkWhen you demonstrate that you have more knowledge than they do, they apply the "rules and regulations" bullshit on you12:22
jjpk"nope, you have to retake this and that and the other"12:23
Romsterwas like i don't nned to know windoze crap i already knew, i was like after advanced stuff.12:23
jjpkYou did not follow the regulations...12:23
jjpkI am so tired of hearing that excuse.12:23
Romsteryeah i said screw you and left.12:23

jjpkNow in a business school open source has the putrid smell of communism written all over it, and surprise surprise this place is a staunch anticommunist organization at heart :D :D12:24

jkrThe hacker was on a FBI computer13:22
jkrAt the login he pressed a secred key combination and the C code of the login program popped up - he typed 'puts(password)' so the correct password was printed on the screen and he could copy it to the password prompt13:23

jkrThe hacker sneaked into a room with kids computers in the company to hack into the company network, and the next day the company people searched for fingerprints on the keyboards13:29
