19:31 < icculus> who would plug an iPod into a Linux box?
19:31 < icculus> It probably had no sense of purpose and killed itself

Free, ebooks, legal!
They're good!
Check out the John Ringo ones espcially!

14:52 < floam> some guy on craigslist whom I replied to a job posting says
  that me listing open source stuff on my resume shows to
everyone how I live in a basement and etc

13:01 < zakk> man? what is a man but a miserable pile of closed source software
13:02 < zakk> but enough of that, have at you!
13:02 < Crusader> mankind ill need software such as you

So the GP2X:
Good things:
  Real Linux
  Two cores
  Runs NES/gensis/etc
  Enough buttons

Bad things:
  Not the greatest build quality
  If you plug-in the AC it reboots.
  If you unplug the AC it turns off.
  USB stuff didn't work well at all until 2.0.0 firmware.
  SNES emulators aren't the highest quality.

Despite these bad things, I'm really happy with it, it was extremely cheap
and is extremely awesome to have a handheld linux device that is designed for

20:19 <@zakk> I was drinking with a gentoo developer
20:21 < Angst> I just came home, now I need to sleep :) gn
20:21 -!- Angst [] has quit ["n8"]
20:33 -!- mosura [] has quit ["[BX] I'm out like a light..."]
20:36 < floam> zakk: with who?
20:36 < floam> did he try to slip some "optimizations" into your drink?
20:37 -!- mosura [] has joined
20:37 < Sketch> heh
20:38 < Sketch> zakk is loaded up on -O99 right now

20:29 < feld> I was in a real bad mood earlier about the Linux/Mac Army ports
  so I actually called the local recuriter and bitched at him

GP2X is awesome.

Cakes decorated while you wait.

Oblivion is awesome:
11:55 < akawaka> i want to poison someone
11:55 < jmro> I found some poison apples
11:55 < akawaka> stick one in someones pocket
11:55 < jmro> you can pickpocket them into people's inventories and the ai will
  eat them when they get hungry

This is the "Solid Eye" cardboard 3D separator that comes with Metal Gear Acid 2.
PITA but works really well.

God of War is great!

11:35 < Crusader> Revolution owners will be able to relive their past gaming glories from the
11:35 < Crusader> Sega Genesis console by playing a "best of" selection from more than 1,000
11:35 < Crusader> Genesis titles, as well as games sold for the TurboGrafx console (a system
11:35 < Crusader> jointly developed by NEC and Hudson). These games join Revolution's access to
11:35 < Crusader> 20 years of fan-favorite Nintendo games from the NES(R), Super NES(R) and
11:35 < Crusader> Nintendo(R) 64 eras.

11:25 < jvalenzu> FOOD
11:25 < zakk> oh no
11:25 < zakk> joe hasn't been fed his daily pail full of fish heads
11:25 < zakk> he might eat the QA personnel
11:26 < jvalenzu> QA personnel are cheaper than a bucket full of fish heads
11:26 < jvalenzu> like, way cheaper
11:26 < jvalenzu> and since they're lower on the food chain they contain less mercury

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter is awesome.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence MP is awesome.

New "interview" with me:

Meet Roxy Slater:

19:11 < jmro> fight night is a blast with two people
19:11 < jmro> now lets all go buy some burger king

I just beat Black. Well worth it if you enjoyed fighting the human soldiers
in Half-Life 1, and the Combine in 2.
If you don't like that kind of thing, then you won't like this, because
this is essentially that distilled down to a gritty realized modern-day-w/o
sci-fi guns version. Accordian Hero!

Black for the ps2 is much better than the demo

I wish that Apple's X11 would emulate the "system tray icon"
functionality of certainly window managers/desktop things
If you haven't read it before, it is still true.

09:44 < icculus> So I was asleep when these two Mexican chicks came in, and I
  guess I didn't hear them knock.

20:52 <+vogon> I am now getting more touch from my computer than I am from other human
20:52 <+vogon> this is what the future will be like

20:51 <+vogon> you know, the scrolling mouse gesture thing is eerily like petting your

Ugh, my ibook died a horrible death, and I have a flu.

15:51 < Sketch> "I've said many, many, many unkind things about Philadelphia,
  and I meant every one."
16:15 < tsuyoshi> just like zakk!

21:42 < jvalenzu> cvs is like an old man trying to pay with a coupon
21:43 <@Briareos> svn, his young retarded grandchild

So with the Audigy 2 ZS sound card in Linux, with ALSA, you have to turn up the
"Analog Mix" control to get anything from your line-in.
Good job Linux, you fucking suck.

My gift to industry is the genetically engineered worker, or
Genejack. Specially designed for labor, the Genejack's muscles and
nerves are ideal for his task, and the cerebral cortex has been
atrophied so that he can desire nothing except to perform his
duties. Tyranny, you say? How can you tyrannize someone who cannot
feel pain?

Does iTunes ignore playlist files when you import music?
I really wish it would prompt you if the files you're importing have no id3 tags,
offer suggestions based on the file name or directory structure, or both.

Though I suspect easy import would cut into their profits from the music store.

So I've got this fancy new monitor that does 1680x1050 (widescreen)
as the default, I go play around with it and when I set that
mode in ut2k4, the announcer goes HOLY SHIT!

Epic really knows how to make a guy feel good about his dork purchases.
