teK_it's a quote from Goethe's Faust06:34

Romsterit is the play with the largest audience numbers on German-language stages.06:36
teK_i'm not a physicist so I won't try and explain (with minor knowledge) what the higgs bosom is about06:36
Romsterbarely understand all this stuff makes less sense than computer code. even that doens't make much sense sometimes. -_-06:37
Romsteryour lucky you don't have my mind, really sucks being me.06:38
teK_I'm sorry to hear that and I'm convinced that this is not true06:38
Romsterwell sometimes i can't comprehend easily, but doesn't mean i give up trying.06:39
aoni wish my mind would convince me to get things done until the absolute deadline06:40
aonwould be less stressful :[06:40

teK_Friday: final project deadline06:42
teK_i'm sitting at my old company's office doing everything else but finish the project :P06:42
teK_at? in. Dunno..06:43
Romsterwhen i was studdying i tend to look at questions in a different perspective then wonder how that's meant to make any sense and it does not give enough details to be specific enough then i go on all sorts of tangents figuring it out then i end up giving up on it.06:43
teK_one must not think to much about stuff :]06:43
Romsterthat's my problem...06:43
Romstermy brain is wired to think of every possible outcome, of course i often forget some of those.06:44
Romsteror it's so obvious i don't see it.06:44
Romsterafter revdeping my system and watching a few movies i haven't done anything else productive this evening/night.06:45
teK_I have had poured quite some shit over me  today and it's only 1 40 pm06:47
*** jdolan has quit IRC06:49
Romsterby evening you'll be not wanting to read anymore.06:55
teK_read about what :)06:56
Romsteroh right your not reading anything because you'll leave it to the last minute.06:56
Romsterjust past midnight now guess i may as well have a early night than hitting the hay at 3-4am07:03
teK_there's a foul bachelor frog meme about getting early to bed to be productive (but not) the next day :>07:08
teK_applies to me sometimes07:08
aoni gotta convert this document template to tex some day07:09
aonword's equation editor causes rsi07:09
teK_about each disorder can be linked to office products07:10
teK_each? any.07:11
frinnst"Windows Update encountered an unknown error."07:14
frinnstHOW IS THAT HELPFUL?07:14
teK_you cannot repair a gpt-based windows 7 if you booted the DVD via BIOS (instead of EFI)07:16
teK_it will say: this version cannot repaired with that disk07:16
frinnstnice, smart07:16
teK_but on top of that..07:17
teK_you cannot install to a gpt layouted disk if you booted via BIOS07:17
teK_again telling me something about "not GPT_style"07:17
teK_took me over three hours to figure that out07:17
frinnstno recovery console booting from the win7 install?07:18
teK_of course07:18
teK_and then?07:18
teK_fun fact #3:07:18
teK_it won't efi-boot if there's another mbr-booting disk in the system07:19
teK_it's just ... m(07:19
Romsterwindows is fucked up07:20
Romsterworse when it's a dell and has yet another recovery partition07:20
Romsterand then the windwos 7 repiar can't restore all the missing dlls that i need after a 2 week long ddrescue and chkdsk /r operation....07:21
teK_i installed Windows 7 due to this booting / install / repair problems 5 five times07:22
teK_no I switched linux to efi-booting (with ELILO), too07:23
teK_but root=/dev/disk-by-uuid/.... won't work with i07:23
teK_it's a mess07:23
Romsteri nwever could get UUID to work in lilo i think that needs a initramfs so it's got mdev there before lilo takes over.07:24
teK_in plain lilo i've got it working with the mentioned syntax07:26
teK_UUID=... is for fstab and maybe grub07:26
Romsteri read that since thge lilo is taken over by some debian dev it should work with UUID now.07:27
Romsterhaven't tested it recently again.07:28
Romsterhad enough fixing my brokenness for the time being.07:28
teK_grep uuid in the elilo source gives 1 hit (in a header file)07:28
Romsterthat's elilo though not lilo that i'm thinking about.07:32
Romsteralso i'm tired so i am heading to bed now g'night.07:33
frinnstdoes the kernel even understand UUID passed as the rootfs?07:33
Koodafrinnst: no.07:34
frinnstso, its a no-go with (e)lilo then07:35
frinnstas you said tek, grub could probably handle it.. but thats because grub is the emacs of bootloaders07:35
