09:16<BiA|pavel-css>english please :)
09:20<De_Ghost>hey uatx should mean micro atx right
09:21<De_Ghost>yea it is
09:22<+glx>µatx would be better
09:22<SmatZ>or microATX
09:22<De_Ghost>i didn't write it
09:22<De_Ghost>looking for parts
09:22|-|stillunknown [] has joined #openttd
09:23<De_Ghost>would a micro atx board fit in a normal atx slot?
09:24<HerzogDeXtEr>atx slot?
09:24<De_Ghost>on a atx case
09:24<HerzogDeXtEr>it'll fit
09:24<De_Ghost>ok thx
09:24<De_Ghost>i mean there is usally screw holes right?
09:24<+glx>everything smaller than ATX should fit in ATX
09:25<HerzogDeXtEr>glx u say it :)
09:26<+glx>but of course you may have problems with PSU and CPU positioning ;)
09:26<De_Ghost>i don't think so as long as there is screw holes
09:27<HerzogDeXtEr>there shouldnt be a problem with the cpu
09:27<+glx>some cases are badly designed, but it's very rare
09:28<HerzogDeXtEr>yeah oki :) in normal cirumstances it should work :)
09:29<HerzogDeXtEr>but why do you want a µATX board?
09:31<De_Ghost>cuz it's on sale
09:32<HerzogDeXtEr>ah oki :)
09:34<De_Ghost>ahh i'll find a case later
09:34<De_Ghost>let me grab all my parts :D

10:21[~]Belugas just had the occasion to browse forums. Why does it have to be so freakingly depressing???
10:23<SmatZ>why is it depressing?
10:24<@Belugas>stupid requests, stupid interventions, narrow minds etc etc etc...
10:24<@Belugas>I have not enjoyed a topic for a long time
10:25<@Belugas>is it just me?
10:26[~]frosch123 recently enjoyed a topic in the german forums, when there were 10 narrow minds discussing.
10:26[~]frosch123 thinks OTTD/TTDP wars in german forum are art
10:27<@Belugas>the war is raging even out of the tt-forums??? wow!
10:28<frosch123>You have luck, there are mainly people, who cannot speak english well enough.
10:29<frosch123>You know MB. In the german forums there are at least 3 of that kind.
10:29<@Belugas>but do they enjoy the war?
10:30<@Belugas>like... giving good arguments?
10:30<frosch123>Nearly noone there has played both games.
10:30<@Belugas>that's a bad situation indeed :)
10:30<frosch123>So if the other party has a nice feature, the other say, it is not needed, or they cannot immagine that it may be useful.
10:32<frosch123>Oh, I forgot the MiniIn and the ChrisIn parties, which throw their non-trunk features into the discussion :)
10:32<@Belugas>surely, i would not want to be even near them :D
10:33<@Belugas>both sides, in fact...
10:35<frosch123>Well I would never have a heart to join the discussion, because it would be some kind of damaging a artwork.
10:35<@Belugas>that's anyway a big problem with these wars: it's always a matter of personnal taste. This feature is good, this one is useless etc etc...
10:36<frosch123>If you take a look at the server list. There is exaktly one MiniIn server :) There were even attemps of a OTTD vs. MiniIn war.
10:38<@Belugas>MiniIN has been the seed of so many confusion...
10:39<@Belugas>some said it was a lab for devs to see how new features would behave, before trunk inclusion
10:39<@Belugas>stuff like that...
10:40|-|DaleStan [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
10:40<+glx>some says the same about ChrisIN
10:41<@Belugas>no kidding???
10:41<@Belugas>it's even not on svn !!!
10:42<@Belugas>nor on nightly :S
10:45[~]frosch123 thinks that is caused by the "added to trunkXXX" behind a lot of patches in the first post of the ChrisIn topic

11:02<Gonozal_VIII>yes, lots of bugs!

11:10<pavel1269>LordAzamath: so, we are in? :)
11:10<LordAzamath>we go
11:10<LordAzamath>btw can you access the server dihedral fair play one
11:10<LordAzamath>I mean do you have grfs?
11:11<LordAzamath>pass is lord
11:11<pavel1269>i don't think so
11:11<LordAzamath>how come :D?
11:12<pavel1269>i don't see any password there :)
11:12<LordAzamath>now there is
11:12<pavel1269>ahhcompany .. :)
11:13<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm he uses grfs without name
11:13<LordAzamath>download #openttdcoop grf pack
11:14<LordAzamath>I have this and can do everything there :D
11:14<pavel1269>i copyed all my grfs and only half of them :)
11:15<LordAzamath>btw, the company name is Eesti Raudtee
11:15<pavel1269>can't fing link :(
11:15<LordAzamath>and join #openttdfairplay on irc too
11:15[~]LordAzamath is searching far a link
11:15<+glx>Gonozal_VIII: grf without name means you miss them
11:16<Gonozal_VIII>normally i see the names of the missing ones
11:16<pavel1269>Gonozal_VIII: with no grf, i saw them
11:17<Gonozal_VIII>but there are some where i only see id and md5sum
11:17|-|DaleStan [] has joined #openttd
11:18<Gonozal_VIII>the first, the last and second to last ad the one after north american roads set
11:19<pavel1269>lol, my grf pack is now 55MB big
11:19<Gonozal_VIII>^^ lots of grfs
11:20<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm now the names are there
11:20<pavel1269>291 files ^^
11:23<@Belugas>i really hope you willnot find a bug and ask us to tack it with a savegame :S
11:26<Gonozal_VIII>btw... i started to modify some grfs yesterday.. i wondered, how are the pcx files with the blue spritenumbers and such generated?
11:27<Gonozal_VIII>i put the numbers there manually but that doesn't seem to be the right way
11:28<@Belugas>those are generated by grfcodec upon decoding
11:28<+glx>blue numbers in pcx are just cosmetic
11:29<@Belugas>specifying those numbers on pcx file is useless. it is defined by the position on the nfo file
11:29<@Belugas>or the number of the nfo line, rather...
11:29<+glx>yes you can use sprite x in line y if you want :)
11:29<Gonozal_VIII>i noticed that because i edited the nfo files too...
11:31<Gonozal_VIII>hmm i must do something wrong with the encoding
11:31<pavel1269>Belugas: if i found a bug, i will delete that save :)
11:31|-|prakti [] has joined #openttd
11:31<Gonozal_VIII>baaaaad pavel
11:33<Gonozal_VIII>the files before encoding shouldn't be the same as after decoding?
11:33<@Belugas>good pavel, good :D
11:34<@Belugas>Gonozal_VIII, depends if you modidied it ;)
11:36<Gonozal_VIII>so... seperate file for every sprite would be the normal way to go?
11:37<@Belugas>it's up to you to decide
11:37<+glx>you can do it if you want :)
11:38<@Belugas>but for sure, the decoding will make it one file only
11:38<@Belugas>pcx that is...
11:38<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm decoding adds the numbers... so all the work i did yesterday with adding numbers..... lalalala
11:39<+glx>totally useless :D
11:40<@Belugas>it's better to have a good maintained nfo source file
11:40<@Belugas>and always work with this one
11:40<@Belugas>not the generated one ;)
11:41<+glx>yes working in your own commented nfo is easier
11:41<Gonozal_VIII>there's something else for that too :O
11:42<@Belugas>don't rely on tools when a good text editor does the job even better ;)
11:42<Gonozal_VIII>i used notepad... but on the file that starts with: // Automatically generated by GRFCODEC. Do not modify!
11:43<+glx>these lines are needed
11:43<Gonozal_VIII>i noticed that^^
11:43<+glx>but you can then add your own comments in your nfo
11:43<Gonozal_VIII>encode didn't work after i removed those
11:44<+glx>and unless you use action 0C they are removed if you encode/decode
11:45<Gonozal_VIII>actions are scary
11:45<Gonozal_VIII>but i like action 7 :-)
11:45<+glx>0C "blah" is not the hardest :)
11:46<pavel1269><Belugas> good pavel, good :D --- :o) ... lol
11:47|-|Deathmaker [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
11:47<@Belugas>actions are scary only when you do not know them
11:48<@Belugas>taking the time to play with them and you start liking them
11:48<@Belugas>to a certain extend, but still :)
11:48<@Belugas>the rule is to follow as close as possile the specs
11:48<Gonozal_VIII>yes, it doesn't look too hard with the documentation on the patch wiki
11:49<pavel1269>LordAzamath: what now?
11:49<+glx>indeed it's harder for us to implement them in ottd using only the wiki
11:49<@Belugas>yeah :D
11:50<LordAzamath>I think that we sh....Ooohh..What is that glistning in the ground? a patch
11:52|-|G [] has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
11:53<Gonozal_VIII>hmm the stuff in action c could also be done with action 7...
11:53<pavel1269>need help :( with setting my server, it just don't work in almost al ways :)
11:53<pavel1269>i have public ip, i forwarded 3979 to my pc
11:54<pavel1269>noone can't find my server ... but
11:54<+glx>Gonozal_VIII: I don't think so, action 7 is skip if, action C does nothing
11:54|-|G [] has joined #openttd
11:54<pavel1269>and noone can't join him, its giving some error which i am trying to find atm
11:55<@DorpsGek>glx: OpenTTD uses TCP and UDP port 3979 for server <-> client communication and UDP port 3978 for masterserver (advertise) communication (outbound)
11:55<Gonozal_VIII>you can choose the if as something that is always true
11:55<pavel1269>so forwarding 3978 might help? :)

13:42<SmatZ>Ikarus-70: maybe someone was making fun of you

13:46<Eddi|zuHause2>the fuel oil trucks do load stuff from that same station
13:47<Gonozal_VIII>plastic producing tiles in the catchment area?
13:47<Eddi|zuHause2>there was never a differentiation on what tiles produce anything
13:47<Eddi|zuHause2>only accepting
13:48<Gonozal_VIII>that's what i thought too but it could be possible...
13:49<Gonozal_VIII>waaaaait a minute
13:49[~]SmatZ waaaaaits
13:50<Gonozal_VIII>i think it can only produce one product at a time :-)
13:50<Eddi|zuHause2>indeed, increasing catchment area helped
13:50<Gonozal_VIII>or that^^
13:51<Gonozal_VIII>but i read about some industry that only produces one product somewhere
13:51<Eddi|zuHause2>but there is absolutely no indication of that anywhere...
13:53<Eddi|zuHause2>now it's getting even more weird... i got 1000 liter of plastic, but nothing more...
13:53<Gonozal_VIII>back to the one product theory... better rating there?
13:53<Eddi|zuHause2>and the algorithm that assignes loading slots is... suboptimal...
13:54<pavel1269>it looks now like, if i turn off FW, MS dont see me ... lol!
13:54<Gonozal_VIII>and the algorithm that assignes loading slots is... suboptimal... <-- what do you mean? always worked fine for me
13:54<pavel1269>no no .(
13:55<Eddi|zuHause2>it often sends trucks to the full station, when there are free slots at the other station...
13:55<Gonozal_VIII>ooooh that
13:55<Eddi|zuHause2>and it does not always take the nearest slot
13:55<Gonozal_VIII>there are some tricks to let them load better
13:56<Gonozal_VIII>i tried around a lot
13:56<pavel1269>ms cant find me now anyway
13:56<Gonozal_VIII>there has to be a possibility to enter the stations from both sides... and the ways have to be different length

14:42<hylje>it loops too often
14:42<Gonozal_VIII>it loops every tile...
14:42<@Belugas>i like the grass
14:42<hylje>the old grass loops well

14:43<Gonozal_VIII>maybe that will be my next modification...
14:44<hylje>its harder than it looks
14:45<hylje>and besides, a more versatile grass texture (from the behalf of the engine) wouldnt be all bad either!
14:45<Gonozal_VIII>well.. i can't do that
14:47[~]Belugas would like very much hylje to show us his talents ^_^
14:48<hylje>i get your point
14:49<Eddi|zuHause2>it shouldn't be too hard to get a different grass texture for adjacent tiles
14:50|-|Ikarus-70 [] has quit []
14:50<Eddi|zuHause2>based on x%2 and y%2 (or possibly (x+y)%4)
14:50<hylje>or random
14:50<Eddi|zuHause2>there's a similar algorithm for the pylon positioning
14:50<Gonozal_VIII>would be nice for rocks too...
14:50<Eddi|zuHause2>random is more difficult, because you have to make all tiles fit
14:51<Eddi|zuHause2>with the modulo calculation, you can be sure which tiles are next to which
14:51<Gonozal_VIII>different rocks with grass-rock transition if there is grass or full rock tile if there is another rock
14:51<Eddi|zuHause2>also you don't need to save the random bits
14:51<hylje>spilling types of terrain?
14:52|-|G [] has joined #openttd
14:52<Eddi|zuHause2>yeah, even the forests and hills in civ 1 did that... it shouldn't be very hard
14:52<hylje>Eddi|zuHause2: one wouldnt need to save the texture bits
14:52<hylje>Eddi|zuHause2: it could very well be generated when one sees it :O
14:52<@Belugas>right now, there is no code that allows to specify a different kind of grass tile
14:53<@Belugas>grass is grass
14:53<@Belugas>bump is bumo,
14:53<@Belugas>and rocks are rocks
14:53|-|Tlustoch [] has joined #openttd
14:53<@Belugas>i don't know how difficult it wold be do to so, not in position to verify
14:55<Eddi|zuHause2>well, the first suggestion would be the easiest, have 4 different grass sprites, and choose them depending on x%2 and y%2
14:55<Gonozal_VIII>a grf would need an action 7 that checks for adjecent tile type
14:55<Eddi|zuHause2>i wouldn't necessarily implement that in grf...

14:55<Gonozal_VIII>(i like action 7, that's the only one i read much about)
14:56<@Belugas>action 7? not related at all, sorry to say
14:56<@Belugas>if you want grass tile to be loadable, you need something else
14:56<@Belugas>like maybe actions 1,2,3
14:56<Gonozal_VIII>well it can skip the grass-rock transition sprite if there is no rock
14:56|-|Mucht [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
14:56<@Belugas>althougn there is no specs at all for that
14:56<@Belugas>maybe a new action A...
14:57<Eddi|zuHause2>if i understood stuff right, action 7/9 decide on static information on grf load if something is to be skipped or not...
14:57<@Belugas>and the grass tile willhave to be assigned at generation, otherwise, pretty much screwed with over calculatin on each tile loop...
14:57<Gonozal_VIII>static? ok.. bad thing then
14:58<Eddi|zuHause2>i mean like wether "wagonspeed limits" is on, and then load additional wagons
14:58<Eddi|zuHause2>or skip them, if it's off
14:59<Gonozal_VIII>i used it in the modification i did to the water on map edges grf to skip newwater sprites if newwater isn't loaded
14:59<Eddi|zuHause2>or you could do stuff like the railway fences, i believe their position is stored in the map
14:59<@Belugas>[15:01] <Eddi|zuHause2> i wouldn't necessarily implement that in grf... <--- maybe, maybe not. it depends...
15:00<Eddi|zuHause2>so you can calculate the grass layout during the tile loop
15:00<Eddi|zuHause2>and then use the stored layout for display
15:01<@Belugas>[15:06] <Eddi|zuHause2> so you can calculate the grass layout during the tile loop <--- beurk :(
15:01<@Belugas>i fear may too much calculations
15:01<Gonozal_VIII>tiles could stay rock/grass/hill even if you bulldoze them or build something else there or flood them... therefore the sprites will stay the same through the game
15:01<@Belugas>making system crawling
15:01<Eddi|zuHause2>why? you calculate grass growth and stuff there anyway
15:01<Eddi|zuHause2>it's not much more to calculate
15:02<@Belugas>therefor, static data, like forest/desert stuff
15:02<@Belugas>with tha amont of tiles, yes, it is a lot more...
15:02<@Belugas>well... that's my opinion anyway...
15:02<@Belugas>no hard data yet to prove it
15:03<@Belugas>[15:07] <Eddi|zuHause2> why? you calculate grass growth and stuff there anyway <--- grass growth? only from bare land to grass, that's it
15:03<Eddi|zuHause2>well, i think you can make it in a way that the effect is insignificant
15:03<@Belugas>and it's not much
15:03<@Belugas>and it's not on every tile
15:03<@Belugas>on ly those that require it
15:03<@Belugas>wel... once more, i think...
15:03<@Belugas>no hard evidence, shoul I repeat myself...
15:04<Eddi|zuHause2>exactly, grass does not constantly need to change, this can most likely be handled for growing grass
15:04<Eddi|zuHause2>and then stays that way, unless that or a neighbouring tile is changed
15:04<Eddi|zuHause2>which you can handle in the command that changes it
15:05<Eddi|zuHause2>i.e. if you clear a tile, you walk through the adjacent tiles
15:05<Eddi|zuHause2>if you grow a grass tile, you walk through adjacent tiles
15:05<Eddi|zuHause2>there shouldn't be much more than that needed
15:06<Gonozal_VIII>how does the game know that a grass tile needs growing?
15:06<Eddi|zuHause2>there's a counter
15:06<Eddi|zuHause2>stored in the tile
15:06<Eddi|zuHause2>decreased on each tile loop
15:07<Eddi|zuHause2>if it hits 0, the next growth step is reached
15:07<Gonozal_VIII>it ignores all tiles that have counter on 0?
15:07<Eddi|zuHause2>no, it ignores all tiles that are fully grown
15:08<Gonozal_VIII>they don't have the counter then?
15:09<Eddi|zuHause2>like: "if (not fully grown) { if (counter==0) { grow tile, reset counter } else { decrease counter } }"
15:10<Eddi|zuHause2>you can find such counters in many different tiles
15:10<Eddi|zuHause2>like houses under construction

15:14<Sacro>I fancy -> I am fancying
15:14<Eddi|zuHause2>typical random functions tend to be O(n), where n is the position in the number sequence

15:17<@Belugas>ok, Sacro, not too bad
15:17<Sacro>like "i fancy her"
15:17<@Belugas>hem... indeed, not too work related hehee
15:19<@Belugas>BiA|pavel-css, don't wnat to be rude, but if it was a bug of OTTD, everyone would be on same situation. So I suggest checking every network component on your system

15:19<@Belugas>i agree it's not normal, but the answer can only come from your system

17:20<fjb>It is used everytime of the day.
17:20<fjb>And night ofcourse.
17:20<Gonozal_VIII>well.. don't expect rational thought in northern germany :-)
17:20<@Bjarni><fjb> It is the usual greeting in northern germany. <-- interesting... in Denmark it's used only in southern Jylland
17:21<@Bjarni> <Gonozal_VIII> well.. don't expect rational thought in [...] germany :-) <-- I knew that
17:21<fjb>Southern Denmark begins where northern Germany ends...
17:21<@Bjarni>I know
17:22<@Bjarni>and I know that the current border is from 1920. We got some of the land back that you stole in 1864.
17:22<@Bjarni>but not all of it
17:22<@Bjarni>and surprisingly we didn't get any after WW2
17:22<fjb>Only the winners got some land...
17:23<@Bjarni>you win the war in 1864 and take our land. You lose in 1945 and we get 3 used locomotives
17:23<@Bjarni>talk about being fair :P
17:23<fjb>Don't speak bad about german locomotives.
17:24<fjb>A kingdom for a german locomotive.
17:24<@Bjarni>in fact those 3 locomotives wasn't really war compensation... it was more like they remained here when the Germans moved out
17:24<fjb>Norway got some used airplanes.
17:24<@Bjarni>well... it was actually 4 but the last one was a switching engine that was beyond repair
17:25<@Bjarni>I'm not really sure if we should count that one
17:25<fjb>Bjarni: I thought you would be happy about every locomotive.
17:27<@Bjarni>BR 38.10
17:27<@Bjarni>that was the German name of the 3 operational locomotives left behind
17:27<fjb>And we never got any compensations for what the wikings did to our towns.
17:27<@Bjarni>and we never got compensation for what the Hansa union did to us
17:28<fjb>BR 38 was a good locomotive, it was the last steam locomotiver used by the DB.
17:28<@Bjarni>yeah... they were good but for some reason they were all scrapped.
17:28<@Bjarni>might be that somebody in DSB didn't like the Germans
17:29<fjb>Oh, sorry, BR 23 was the last one used. But BR 38 was good too. A prussian design.
17:30<fjb>BR 38 was used all over Europe even before WWII
17:30<@Bjarni>Belgium got 16 BR 50. We bought 12 of them and used them for heavy freight
17:30|-|Farden [] has quit [Quit: ( :: NoNameScript 4.02 :: )]
17:31<@Bjarni>but don't ask me why DSB decided to change the boiler pressure from 16 to 12 kg/cm^2
17:31<fjb>BR 50 was far mor powerfull then BR 38.
17:31<@Bjarni>they became less efficient and couldn't pull as much anymore
17:31<Gonozal_VIII>i want back what we lost in ww1 and ww2
17:31<@Bjarni>BR 50 is a true heavy freight engine
17:31<fjb>Maybe they didn't have spare parts strong enough for the higher pressure.
17:32<@Bjarni>that sounds like a lame reason for the extra coal
17:32<fjb>The boilers of the late German steam engines were high technology at their time.
17:33<@Bjarni>if you have a boiler pressure at 10 kg, then you can fill the firebox with coal and still not be able to increase the pressure while driving. If the pressure is 12 then you can keep the pressure and use way less coal even at higher power output
17:33<@Bjarni>so the difference between 12 and 16 has to be really big
17:34<fjb>That is why they were designed for the higher pressure.
17:35<@Bjarni>in fact the first point of where higher pressure makes less sense is 25 km/cm^2 because at that pressure water can turn into steam without using energy
17:35<@Bjarni>at 12 kg/cm^2 1/3 of the energy is used to heat the water and 2/3 is used to change water into steam
17:35|-|mikl_ [] has joined #openttd
17:36<@Bjarni>so higher pressure means way less costs for making one litre of steam while one litre of steam at higher pressure can do more work
17:36<@Bjarni>it's a win-win :)
17:36<fjb>That sounds reasonable.
17:37<fjb>There are some informations about BR 50 at the german Wikipedia, if your german is well enough. It should be enough for the technical data, if you are interested:
17:37<@Bjarni>ever wondered why steam locomotives tend to have a leaking safety valve while driving? It's because they have their peak efficiency at the point where it starts to open but isn't fully opened yet
17:38<@Bjarni>the minor leak wastes less energy than the gain from the high pressure
17:38<fjb>I didn't know.
17:38<@Bjarni>now you do ;)
17:38<Gonozal_VIII>then why not make the safety with a little bit more pressure?
17:38|-|mikl [] has quit [Quit: Connection reset by Peer Gynt]
17:39<fjb>The german steam engines were really efficient.
17:39<@Bjarni>there is a reason why Germany built steam locomotives for all of Europe
17:40|-|Osai [] has quit [Quit: Osai]
17:40<Gonozal_VIII>you could heat passenger wagons with the steam, then there wouldn't be much wasted :-)
17:40<Gonozal_VIII>at least in winter...
17:40<@Bjarni>I learned today (or yesterday) that they even exported steam locomotives to Japan
17:40<fjb>German locomotives got fames when they designed steam engined for the alpine region, where english locomotives where not usable.
17:41<fjb>Yes, just look at the japan set for TTD. :-)
17:41<@Bjarni>Gonozal_VIII: err... what?
17:41<Gonozal_VIII>i didn't know that the alpine climate set was that old
17:41<@Bjarni>Gonozal_VIII: heating steam is taken directly from the boiler... it's not a waste product
17:42<Gonozal_VIII>after it expanded to normal pressure it's still warm... or not?
17:42|-|Osai [] has joined #openttd
17:43<@Bjarni>Gonozal_VIII: heating steam was invented to replace the need for burning coal in every car. In case of derailment then only the fireman and driver will be hit by burning coal and there was a fair chance that the wooden cars wouldn't catch fire
17:43<@Bjarni>they did that a lot when the burning coal fell out on the wooden floors/walls
17:43<Gonozal_VIII>oh they actually did that?
17:43<Gonozal_VIII>i thought that was my idea just now^^
17:44<@Bjarni>imagine your model railroad. Something gets stuck while the locomotive moves on and all the cars falls over on the side
17:44<@Bjarni>imagine heating in the cars using coal
17:44<@Bjarni>the coal will also fell over and set fire to whatever they touch
17:45<@Bjarni>that's not a good thing with cars full of now injured people
17:45<@Bjarni>possibly with not quick way out
17:45<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm wouldn't touch anything from inside the oven...
17:46<fjb>In the early years of railway the pessengers were locked inside the cars, to prevent them from accidently falling out of the cars.
17:47<Gonozal_VIII>passengers are still locked inside the cars?
17:47<fjb>They are again locked inside the cars. That is new since about two years.
17:48<Gonozal_VIII>hmm no.. that's much longer here
17:48<Gonozal_VIII>second generation of locked cars on my small sideline
17:48<@Bjarni>I can't find anything about this online
17:48<@Bjarni>I know what it looks like
17:48<@Bjarni>and how to operate it
17:49<fjb>It's really new in germany. And many old locomotives lost their licence to drive on german railroads because they have no ability to lock the passenger cars.
17:49<@Bjarni>and I have pictures in my head on what it looks like
17:49<Gonozal_VIII>the most recent wagons have buttons to open the doors
17:50<fjb>But what happens in case of an accident. Look at the the german ICe accident. They had a hard time to free the injured people from the the crashed cars.
17:50<Gonozal_VIII>before that there were/are the cars with a metal lever thingy... you can hear a "click" when it unlocks
17:50<fjb>The fireman were not able to break the windows of the ICE.
17:51<@Bjarni>that sucks
17:51|-|lugo [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:51<Gonozal_VIII>they should break easily when you hit them on the marked areas
17:51<Gonozal_VIII>and there is always emergency unlock for the doors
17:51<fjb>The new ICe has windows that break when you hit a certain point with a sharp thing.
17:52<Gonozal_VIII>the old didn't?
17:52<fjb>You could only break the windows from the inside, not the outside.
17:52<Gonozal_VIII>hmmm i think you could pull the rubber out of the frame
17:52<@Bjarni> <-- finally found a picture of a train with heating steam on
17:52<@Bjarni>and then it's a diesel :P
17:52<fjb>But the people in the crashed train were barely alive, impossible for them to free themselfs.

17:56<@Bjarni><fjb> Oh, yeah.

Then they replaced steam locomotives with diesel and then to ensure that they could still heat the wagons they installed heating steam boilers in them
17:56<@Bjarni>but they were semi automatic and used diesel as fuel instead of coal
17:57|-|Vikthor [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
17:58<fjb>Some used the main diesel engine to generate that steam.
17:58<fjb>So the locomotived hat not the full power when also heating passenger cars.
18:00<@Bjarni>how did that work?
18:00<@Bjarni>I mean how would the engine itself produce steam?
18:00<Gonozal_VIII>you mix water into the diesel :-)
18:01<fjb>Hm, maybe I'm wrong here. I have to read about it again.
18:02<fjb>I guess i mixed it with electric heating.
18:02<fjb>Shame on me.
18:02<Gonozal_VIII>they don't use steam for that^^
18:04<@Bjarni> <-- this one had a heating boiler as well
18:04<@Bjarni>I once saw a picture of one with the safety valve open... looked kind of strange from an electric engine
18:05<@Bjarni>yeah... diesel locomotives can supply power for electric heating in the cars
18:05<fjb>I guess every passenger Diesel or electric locomotive build in the 1950s had a heating boiler.
18:06<Gonozal_VIII>i steal power from the railway company :D

18:06<Gonozal_VIII>i unplug my laptop some hours before i take the train home and load it in the train
18:06<@Bjarni>I even heard of a diesel locomotive with a prime mover and a heating engine. The sole purpose of the heating engine was to produce power for electric heating. They were refitted into the engines when it turned out that they had problems climbing a certain hill when they had the heat on
18:07<@Bjarni><fjb> I guess every passenger Diesel or electric locomotive build in the 1950s had a heating boiler. <-- no... our diesels lack heating steam and to make it fun we need it next weekend so we actually had to borrow one with heating steam :/

18:16<@Bjarni>Some years ago in South Africa, a driver working an electric train on a early morning trip across the open country south of Johannesburg discovered a burnt body lying across the overhead catenary. The man had been trying to cut the wires so he could steal the valuable copper cable. Of course, he had been fried by the current, which unknown to him, was switched on at 3000 volts DC.
18:18<Prof_Frink>current at 3000V?

18:44<@Bjarni>alternatively you can do as they did in the metro in Copenhagen. Use a timer and hope that it works
18:44[~]Bjarni has yet to see a metro train leave the busiest station where people were done getting in and out
18:45<@Bjarni>even though they doubled the time at that station it's still not enough
18:45<@Bjarni>that is what you get for running on the timer instead of actually checking if people are getting in or out
18:46<Gonozal_VIII>they have a timer here too but it only prevents the doors from opening, it doesn't shut them if they're already open
18:46<@Bjarni>here they close the doors then time is up

21:40<Sacro>and drawing it all out
21:40<Sacro>right, how to solve linear equations using matrix methods
21:41<ThePizzaKing>that's fun
21:41<Sacro>any clues?
21:41<Sacro>i'm sure he hasn't taught this one
21:42<ThePizzaKing>you put the equations as rows in the matrix
21:42<ThePizzaKing>so 2x + 3y - 7z = 2 becomes [2 3 7 2]
21:42<ln->just write down the coefficients in the matrix, do some operations, profit.
21:43<ThePizzaKing>that's pretty much it
21:43<ThePizzaKing>Like add one row to another
21:43<ln->or add one row to another and multiply
21:44<Sacro>so i have 2 , 1, 2 \n 4, 5, 5
21:44<ThePizzaKing>And you want all leading numbers to have zeros below them at the ned
21:45<ThePizzaKing>so you take 2* row 1 from row 2
21:45<ThePizzaKing>2, 1, 2 \n 0, 3, 1
21:45<Sacro>how'd you get that?
21:46<ThePizzaKing>you multiply the first row by 2, and then subtract it from the second row
21:46<Sacro>that's just a normal simultaneous equation
21:46<Sacro>nothing special
21:47<ThePizzaKing>yeah, that's pretty much all it is
21:49<Sacro>so i have 4 2 4
21:49<Sacro>then err
21:49<Sacro>4 5 5 minus 4 2 4 gives 0 3 1?
21:50<Sacro>so that means that y = 3?
21:50<Sacro>or 1/3
21:50<Sacro>3y =1
21:51<ThePizzaKing>and then you sub that into the first row
21:51<ThePizzaKing>2x + y = 2
21:53<Sacro>do i shove in the 0 3 1?
21:53<Sacro>4 2 4 * 3 = 12 6 12

22:21<Sacro>it looks different
22:21<Sacro>unless i've put x instead of times
22:21<ln->when you're operating with vectors, and you don't mean the cross product.
22:21<Sacro>which does happen
22:21<Sacro>where abouts?
22:21<Sacro>cos afaik i do mean the cross product
22:22<ln->in the answer for Q1 (1) 3a you don't mean the cross product as far as i understand.
22:22<Sacro>yes, true
22:22<Sacro>but i think that is the only one
22:23<ln->also the next one, a·b
22:27<Sacro>any more comments?
22:29<ln->wtf is a cross-product of two matrices?
22:29<Sacro>question 4?
22:30<Sacro>i dunno :\
22:30<Sacro>but that one is right
22:30<ln->i would have got -6 and 16 on the bottom row

22:33<ln->again, in (2) of 4, you certainly are not using the cross-product but ordinary multiplication (as is correct here).
22:35<ln->but this (1) of 4, are you saying it is not supposed to be about normal matrix multiplication?
22:35<Sacro>that is right
22:35<Sacro>i think
22:37<ln->what does the resulting matrix represent?

22:37<Sacro>no idea :\

22:40<Sacro>ln-: what do you reckon?
22:40<ln->at least i have never heard of a cross product of matrices.
22:41<ln->while the cross product for vectors represents the vector that is perpendicular to both the parameter vectors.
22:41<ln->and that exercise so much looks like a normal matrix multiplication exercise.
22:42<Sacro>it's just a "suppose"
22:42<Sacro>so ...
22:42<Sacro>i did it wrong?
22:42<Sacro>no, that is matrix multiplicaion
22:43<ln->in my opinion the answer would be (19 -24)\n(-6 16)
22:44<ln->and it could be counted with zero intermediate steps on paper..
22:44<ln->but then, i'm not the math genius here.
22:45<Sacro>you're right
22:45<Sacro>-6, -16?
22:46<ln->yes, true, -16.
22:46<Sacro>seems to confirm it

22:49<Sacro>ln-: any other complains?
22:50<ln->your syntax in (2) of 4 is really odd, but if you were taught that way, then...
22:51<Sacro>no i'm just winging it
22:52<ln->you don't really have any matrices in that, and you are supposed to be operating with matrices all the time.
22:53<ThePizzaKing>If I could work out matrices in Math I'd show you how I'd set it out
22:53<ln->imho, you should be beginning with the matrix: (2 1 2)\n(4 5 5)
22:54<Sacro>ThePizzaKing: left [ matrix{1 # -2 ## 3 # ~1} right ]
22:54<ln->then marking which line you add to which, with what factor, and then write the matrix again with the appropriate line changed.
22:54<Sacro>ln-: yeah, i'll do that in the morrow
22:54<Sacro>before i print it and hand it in
22:55<ln->i think i'll go integrate my bed over [t0, t0+10h)
22:56<Sacro>but do all my answers look good?
23:05<ThePizzaKing>I would have set it out like this:
23:06<ThePizzaKing>Maybe with a few more notes on the side as to what I was doing
23:06<ThePizzaKing>I might not have done the last matrix step either, and just subed in the value for y

23:13<Sacro>i'll maybe modify it in the morning
23:13<Sacro>but tis like 4:15 am now :(
23:13<Sacro>and some twat is beeping his horn
