john_cephalopodaThe new iPhone 7s! Only 1 mm flat - except for the part where it got a fat RS-232 outlet.18:37
joacimi move my keyboard around a lot18:37
joacimso mine experience more wear and tear probably18:38
john_cephalopodaI only got a mini USB one on my phone and on my drawing tablet.18:38
john_cephalopodaElse using USB-A18:38
joacimcan just cut out the connector and solder in a cable too tho18:38
joacimmy psp has mini usb for charging, but it only works when it is turned on...18:39
joacimand not when playing games18:39
john_cephalopodaIncredible design.18:39
john_cephalopodaI just imagine modern devices with old RS-232 ports on them.18:40
joacimhere's one18:42
joacimand many workstation/server motherboards have them18:42
joacimmany consumer tier hardware have them too in the form of a header on the motherboard18:43

john_cephalopodaA leaked image of the new iPhone 7s:
john_cephalopodaThe Apple CEO left it in a restaurant and some guy took a photograph of it.19:00
john_cephalopodaApparently it got a PS/2 port and a serial port.19:00
joacimthat's pretty lame tbh19:01
joacimgotta carry an adaptor for my DIN keyboard19:01
john_cephalopodaThe DIN and VGA port are on the other side, I think.19:01
tilmanphoto looks legit19:05
john_cephalopodaTogether with a 6.35 mm audio Jack, 2 more PS/2 ports, 3 midi ports (toggable between in/out/thru in software), 2 ISA slots for extension cards, stereo XLR, a 100-230V Schuko power outlet and a NTSC compatiible camera.19:07
john_cephalopodaAlso a front-facing camera for PAL.19:07
joacim-12V and -5V rails too I hope19:09
joacimfor better ISA card compatibility19:09
john_cephalopodaThe one in the image only got -12 V, but Apple says that they will change it in iOS 10b.19:10
john_cephalopodaAlso it has coax cables, so you can connect your studio camera to it, as well as a sattelite uplink.19:10
john_cephalopodaInstead of a battery, it contains a small russian nuclear reactor. You have to show a certificate of good conduct and need a special insurance to run it. But when it runs, it runs without recharging for 20 years.19:12
*** prologic_ has joined #crux19:12
korihuh now that I think about it, I haven't seen you in a while, prologic19:13
john_cephalopodaAt my university, which was in former soviet sector, they still got old soviet equipment, which still runs.19:14
john_cephalopodaMore than 25 years.19:14

john_cephalopodaThey built some cool stuff in soviet russia.19:47
john_cephalopodaBut after the SU died, they stopped building cool new stuff and just improved on the old one.19:48

Wildefyrgotta use skype, any issues with it on crux at the moment?21:40
WildefyrI heard they were starting to cut linux support off21:40
koriWildefyr: they are21:42
koriit's server-side21:42
Wildefyrtime to install libreoffice21:50
john_cephalopodaI'm using IRC and XMPP for text chat and jitsi for video calls.21:50
john_cephalopodaJitsi is on skype level.21:50
WildefyrI still need to get my webcam working21:51
WildefyrI've just been completely unable to21:51
john_cephalopodaAnd it has an online video chat that one can join over the browser without registration - webrtc powered.21:51
Wildefyryeah doesn't help when a business contact is already on skype though21:51
john_cephalopodaWell, it's free, doesn't require registration and as long as the business contact doesn't use IE, it should work.21:56
john_cephalopodaAlso it _works_21:56
Wildefyrgood to bear in mind though21:56
john_cephalopodaAnd it doesn't require you to install the crappiest sound system ever invented.21:56
Wildefyrpulse just builds ontop of alsa21:57
Wildefyrwhich is the dumb thing21:57
Wildefyrwhen is someone gonna write a decent sound server in the first place?21:57
john_cephalopodaalsa works good enough for me.22:04
john_cephalopodaJack has some inconveniences but is quite okay, too.22:04
john_cephalopodaBut pulse just sucks REALLY hard.22:04
Wildefyrwhere the hell is the starting binary for libreoffice?22:04
john_cephalopodaWildefyr: soffice22:04
joacimi used ossv4 for a bit22:06
joacimwas pretty ok, but not all software behaved well with it22:06
john_cephalopodaMmh, it's quite old and marked as "outdated" in the kernel config dialog.22:10
joacimthat's not ossv422:10
Wildefyrdoes xorg-font-msttcorefonts provide arial for use in libreoffice?22:11
