00:11<ccfreak2k>If new signals appear after 1975, then you're probably just "missing" the old-style semaphores.
00:23<@petern>missing openttdw.grf?
00:23<@petern>or wrong version of

00:31-!-dihedral [] has joined #openttd
00:32<solid_liq>I don't think I am
00:33<solid_liq>petern: yeah, I am missing it... where do I get that?
00:35<solid_liq>ccfreak2k: it's more than just missing signals, there are a bunch of missing icons... missing signals is the worst tho because I can't see which way they'r facing
00:35<dihedral>with your copy of openttd usually
00:35<solid_liq>dihedral: hmmm, what dir does it install to?
00:36<dihedral>start from the very beginning
00:36<dihedral>what did you download and from where
00:36<dihedral>and how can you say it's missing if you dont know where to find it?
00:37<solid_liq>hmm, dpkg shows the file, but it's not in the directory dpkg says it should be in
00:37<solid_liq>dihedral: I'm on debian sid, so I just did: aptitude install openttd
00:38<solid_liq>then copied the other .grf files over from the transport tycoon installer
00:38<dihedral>locate openttd ?
00:38<dihedral>after a updatedb
00:38<dihedral>or usually games whould be installed in /usr/games ?
00:38<dihedral>perhaps look in /usr/share/games ?
00:38<dihedral>or /usr/share/openttd
00:38<solid_liq>I see the dir just fine
00:38<dihedral>often enough there is also /usr/share/docs/<appname>
00:38<solid_liq>I mean the openttdw.grf file isn't there
00:39<dihedral>which dir
00:39<dihedral>i have mentioned about 4
00:39<dihedral>run updatedb
00:39<dihedral>as root
00:40<solid_liq>I don't have locate/slocate/updatedb installed it looks like...
00:40<solid_liq>just a sec
00:41-!-dih [] has joined #openttd
00:42-!-dih is now known as Guest462
00:42<solid_liq>okay, it'll take a few minutes to build the database, I have about 400GB of files to index
00:42<dihedral>yay - welcome back self
00:43-!-Guest462 is now known as dih
00:45<dih>much better this way :-)
00:45-!-dihedral [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
00:58<solid_liq>dih: okay, locate didn't find it
00:58<@petern>so it's in dpkg -L but not actually there?
00:58<dih>petern, dpkg -L should not even list the files, only the packages
01:00<dih>anyway - i am off - time to get ready to head for work
01:00<solid_liq>petern: yeah
01:01<solid_liq>dih: dpkg -L has always listed the files in a pkg for me... with dpkg -L openttd anyway
01:02<solid_liq>dih: you must be thinking of lowercase l
01:06<solid_liq>okay, cool, I'll restart it now and see if it's fixed :)
01:08<solid_liq>sweet! It looks a lot better now! I didn't have any animated game going in the background before when I started openttd :)
01:08<solid_liq>and the font is much better
01:08<solid_liq>thanks a lot to everyone who helped :D

07:31<Brianetta>PyBorg is being worked on by my LUG
07:31<welshdragon>dih, it's in simsig

08:05<Brianetta>deebot isn't as pure as pyborg
08:07*Celestar sneezes
08:10<welshdragon>Brianetta, but it has a better structure for sentences
08:12<Brianetta>it has a structure
08:12<Brianetta>pyborg has no structure
08:12<Brianetta>it's pure
08:12<Brianetta>no preconceptions
08:13<Char>is there a way to keep computer enemies from behaving completely and utterly stupid?
08:13<Brianetta>it works just as well in foreign languages
08:13<Brianetta>Char: Have them stop behaving at all?
08:13<Brianetta>by enemies, do you mean competing companies?
08:14<Char>i mean
08:14<Brianetta>commonly accepted wisdom is to replace AI players with human ones
08:14<Char>they build like three identical lines between a coal mine and a power plant which are 20 tiles away from each other
08:15<Brianetta>The alternative is to wait patiently for the NOAI engine to be completed, and for some decent competitors to be written.
08:15<Brianetta>Or, just play solo.
08:17<planetmaker>or get a binary from the NoAI branch :)
08:17<Char>will the new AI ever be completed? ;)
08:18<planetmaker>It's working already quite nice. And it's not _the_ - there are many around, good, better and less good ones :)
08:18<Char>does it work for trains as well?
08:18<Char>cause there is one AI around which just works for road vehicles
08:18<Char>and where can i get it/
08:18<planetmaker>look in the forums General OpenTTD - noai subforum.
08:19<planetmaker>Get Yexo's Admiral AI. I guess it's one of the best and it does everything except ships.
08:20<Char>The NoAI framework provides an API to write your own AI. AI's can be written using squirrel. Currently, it's not possible to build rails/trains, but that will come at some point in the future.
08:21-!-ecke [~ecke@] has joined #openttd
08:23<Brianetta>planetmaker: Some admiral.
08:23<planetmaker>Char: that's an old posting. Search for admiral AI.
08:24<planetmaker>Brianetta: how do you mean?
08:25<Brianetta>planetmaker: Look up "admiral" in a dictionary.
08:26<planetmaker>... and?
08:26<Char>i found what i need i guess
08:26<Brianetta>"...and it does everything except ships."
08:27<@Celestar>"13:18 < planetmaker> Get Yexo's Admiral AI. I guess it's one of the best and it does everything except ships." <= trains too?!
08:27<planetmaker>indeed :)
08:27<@Celestar>I want to see it :P
08:27<@Celestar>but I've got to head to a meeting in a few
08:27<planetmaker>look through the thread, it has images :)
08:27<Brianetta>Perhaps you should look up irony, too, because an AI called "Admiral" that can do everything but ships is deeply ironic.
08:27<planetmaker>oh... :)
08:27<Char>i just downloaded it
08:27<Char>seems to be pretty nice
08:28<planetmaker>k, missed that one :)
08:28<planetmaker>but airforce also uses admirals, no?
08:30<planetmaker>And I think its origin is in a plane-only AI.
08:30<@Rubidium>who noai's about naming things completely opposite

08:31<@Celestar>I gotta go
08:31<@Celestar>cu later today
08:31-!-Celestar [~Jadzia_Da@] has quit [Quit: leaving]
08:33<Char>no, i guess airforce does not have admirals
08:33<@Rubidium>they're called (air) marshals in the airforce
08:35<Char>how do i choose the AI to be used?
08:38<planetmaker>Rubidium: the creator of AdmiralAI obviously chose a mis-leading name then :) . At least in German language we have admirals in the airforce, too - so I guess it might be the same in aviation in the Netherlands, too.
08:40-!-tokai [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
08:40<Brianetta>planetmaker: airforce uses sky marshal or general (depending whether it's commonwealth or US), never admiral
08:41<Char>i cannot get the AI to do anything
08:41<Char>actually i cannot even get it to start a company
08:41<Char>now it works

08:48<Char>i wonder how a local authority of a city can think "very good" of a transport company if all it does is steering literally hundreds of coal trucks through the city centre.
08:49<dih>by bribing
08:49<dih>by planting a bunch of trees around the town
08:49<dih>various possibilities
08:49<Char>its a computer player
08:50<Char>and no, the computer player did not place shitloads of trees
08:50<Gekz>I wonder why a city cares about the transferring of goods from one place to another
08:50-!-lobster_MB [] has joined #openttd
08:50<dih>Char: the ai cheats
08:50<dih>it does
08:50<@Rubidium>dih: the noai AIs don't
08:50<dih>how should i know which ai Char is talking about
08:51<Char>and i wonder why the admiralAI i have here builds lots of train stations but never connects them
08:51<@Rubidium>dih: by reading the context?
08:51<dih>if he's chatting up in this channel i assume it's the current ai
08:51<dih>not the noai branch :-P
08:51<dih>that would be a good point
08:51<dih>still i thought that was the reason you guys had an extra channel :-P
08:52<@Rubidium>so there isn't any OTTD talk in #tycoon?
08:52<dih>i dont know - i never visit that channel
08:52<Brianetta>Rubidium: They tut and sigh when we try it
08:53<Brianetta>#tycoon is an extension of the off-topic forum, as far as I can tell.
08:53<Char>sorry for speaking in the wrong channel btw :P
08:54<dih>Char: if you really were i think the devs would have mentioned it

11:44<@Celestar>man .. nested screens are evil
11:44<@Belugas>birds nesting on your screens is even worse
11:47<@Celestar>and I wish people on the supercomputer would FINALLY learn how to use the queueing system :S
11:47<@Celestar>and not put 96-CPU jobs into the max-8-CPUs-job queue
11:48<@Celestar>because there are currently > 120 jobs in that queue marked as "ERROR"
11:49<@Celestar>some of them for a fortnight already.
11:49<@Celestar>apparently people really really need that data badly
11:50<@Celestar>note: of these 120 jobs, about 100 are from only 4 different people (accounts)
11:50<planetmaker>There's two things which are infinite: human stupidity and the universe. I'm not sure about the latter.
11:50<@Celestar>I know :D
11:50<planetmaker>I would have been surprised if you didn't :)

11:52<planetmaker>yeah, looks awesome :)
11:52<@Celestar>I wish my advisor would understand a BIT about what I am doing :S

12:03<@Belugas>in fact, they even may give us problem with the map
12:03<@Belugas>not to mention the blatant lack of gfx
12:03<@Celestar>not so crossing bridges
12:04*Belugas nods
12:04<Aali>thats up there with signaled bridges, eh
12:04<@Celestar>in fact, crossing bridges just work
12:04<@Belugas>that's another story...

12:06<@Celestar>so IF we have nice grfs for crossing bridges, we could put them in

12:06<@Rubidium> ?
12:06<@Belugas>they are busy with opengfx :)
12:06<@Celestar>Belugas: with the graphics or the license?
12:07<@Belugas>totally dunno
12:07<@Rubidium>they appear to have eliminated all but one license
12:07<Sacro>or just masturbating frantically over blender
12:07<@Celestar>Rubidium: which one is that one?

12:37<Eddi|zuHause>i thought about cheap costumes and random references to various mythologies
12:38<@Rubidium>it's just a series of mythologies in a more modern coat

15:17<Yexo>binaries at
15:18<@Celestar>any newGRFs possible/recommended?
15:18<Yexo>all should work
15:18<Yexo>so just your favourite combination :)
15:19<Yexo>although the 2ccset may give some problems because the building cost are really high, I suggest to put parameter 0 to 1 or 2 (sandbox or easy mode)
15:19<@Rubidium>Celestar: and if it doesn't work you can flame him ;)
15:19<@Celestar>I shall
15:19*Celestar hands out some asbestos suits :P

15:23<Yexo>Celestar: What is the status of cargodest? How long before it can hit trunk?
15:23<@Celestar>Yexo: there's some problem with refits mainly, but I cannot continue development for the next 7 days.
15:23*Rubidium likes the name of the town where they used to make asbestos products in the NL: "Goor" (in english: dirty/squalid)
15:23<@Celestar>Yexo: after that, it will hopefully go very fast. you want to code AdmiralAI for cargodest? ;)
15:24<Yexo>I've already done a big part for that
15:24<@Rubidium>okay... seven days have past ;)

15:27<@Celestar>I think they will
15:27<Yexo>infrastructure sharing?
15:27<Yexo>as soon as such a patch is in trunk I'll code support for it
15:30-!-Fuco [] has joined #openttd
15:33<Aali>i really hope it does get into trunk
15:33<@Celestar>I'll try to see to it :)
15:33<Aali>the only reason i'm not playing NoAI is that it would be a pain in the ass to merge it with my other patches
15:34<@Celestar>would it? why?
15:35<Yexo>noai merges with cargodest with only 3 (very small) failed blocks
15:35-!-rortom [] has joined #openttd
15:36<Aali>i dont play cargodest
15:36<@Celestar>cargodest + IS is a killer combo
15:38<Yexo>Aali: NoAI changes only a few things in 'trunk code'. Most of the code is in the ai/ directory so doesn't create conflicts with other patches. I was trying to point that out by giving cargodest (not a small patch) as example
15:38-!-yorick [] has joined #openttd
15:38<Aali>Yexo: hmm, i might just give it a try then
15:40<planetmaker>[20:36] <Celestar> cargodest + IS is a killer combo <-- very much so. But the current patch is broken and buggy.
15:40<planetmaker>:( And I'm too bloody stupid to fix it.
15:40<@Celestar>planetmaker: I'll help at some point
15:41<Aali>Yexo: but it wont be using IS automagicly, right?
15:41<Yexo>the current patch is buggy?
15:41<yorick>planetmaker: lazy*
15:41<Yexo>Aali: no
15:41<planetmaker>Yexo: yes. It got some problems in the latest versions.
15:41<Yexo>I had the impression it worked pretty well, but I haven't tried it myself lately
15:42<Aali>which is better than nothing but still not great
15:42<planetmaker>And it's buggy. It asserts, when I enable per-company support :O
15:42<planetmaker>Yeah. lately is the thing :)
15:42<planetmaker>I've the definite feeling it's beyond my current c/c++ ability.
15:42<Yexo>I might give it a go
15:42<planetmaker>was ok, 1k revisions ago.
15:42<Aali>planetmaker: i haven't had any problems with it, i never use per-company settings though
15:43<planetmaker>And currently waypoints don't block competitors trains anymore, either. No idea why.
15:43<Aali>wasn't that considered a bug and "fixed" by some guy?
15:43<Yexo>Does (a proper implemented) IS have any chance of going into trunk?
15:44<planetmaker>well - not that I know :)
15:45<@Celestar>Yexo: that depends what the team decides upon (=
15:45<planetmaker>Some people may consider it a bug. I consider that a feature: you can reserve some tracks for your exclusive usage.
15:46<yorick>it needs a separate thing, I think
15:46<@Celestar>Yexo: and on Rubidium's opinion, really
15:46<Yexo>Celestar: of course, but fixing IS might be (probably is) a lot if work, so I'd like to hear some opinions about that before starting to work on something that'll never hit trunk anyway
15:47<fjb>Hm, is blocking waypoints really a good idea? I'm often using waypoints on my networks.
15:47<@Celestar>I'm using them too
15:47<@Celestar>not often, but here and there
15:47<Aali>and you can still keep a separate network not connected to anyone elses
15:47<fjb>Waypoints would block half of my network...
15:47<Aali>unless you're sharing depots, of course
15:48<planetmaker>Yexo: quite probable not in the current implementation
15:49<planetmaker>Celestar made a number of quite good comments on the current patch... Even I understand them :P
15:50<planetmaker>I implemented some, but the big ones... alas.
15:50<planetmaker>[20:47] <Aali> and you can still keep a separate network not connected to anyone elses <-- that's not always an option :)
15:51<planetmaker>I agree though, that abusing waypoints is hackish.
15:51<planetmaker>But IMO the patch needs the possibility to block competitors using certain of your tracks
15:51<planetmaker>But I didn't find another easy solution; the current is a hack for wwottdgd/2
15:52<Aali>yeah, of course, ideally you would want some kind of company signals
15:52<planetmaker>yeah. Something.
15:52<Aali>or company markers or whatever
15:52<planetmaker>Another nice thing would allow access on a per-station basis than general
15:52<Yexo>I think it should be the other way around: by default disallow and have some sort of waypoint that allows opponents train to enter your network
15:52-!-Purno [] has quit [Quit: Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.]
15:53<@Celestar>this needs further discussion
15:53<planetmaker>Yexo: default is no sharing at all :)
15:53<planetmaker>if you allow, you allow general access.
15:53<Yexo>and I think you should be able to allow only on certain parts of the network
15:53<Aali>Yexo: that would be hard to implement though, since you would have to keep track of where a shared segment starts/ends
15:54<planetmaker>Yexo: that's why I implemented the waypoint hack: easily place one at the entry of the no-go-area and you're done
15:54<Aali>opt-out is a lot easier to handle, code-wise
15:54<Yexo>Aali: it's not, you only have to keep track of who's train it is and who's track it is.
15:54<planetmaker>yexo: code-wise it's much easier to define blocking tiles
15:54<planetmaker>than make it a tile property
15:55<@Celestar>er go for it step-by-step.
15:55<Yexo>sure, blocking tiles are easier, but certain allow-tile are not too hard either
15:55-!-Char [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
15:55<@Celestar>the opt-out thingy can be added later on
15:55<planetmaker>the idea of "company signals" is one which isn't bad IMO.
15:55<planetmaker>full ack
15:55<planetmaker>a first step would be just allow sharing, even without company settings IMO
15:56<planetmaker>just a switch yes/no and setting global fees.
15:56<planetmaker>2nd ist customization
15:56<planetmaker>3rd is advanced stuff like local access control and per-company access
15:58<@Celestar>a separate hg repo would be handy methinks
15:58<rortom>hi all

15:58<rortom>has the nightly of yesterday a desync bug?
15:58<rortom>cause its desyncing all the time :|
15:58<planetmaker>rortom: changed any grf?
15:59<rortom>i used the openttdcoop GRF
15:59<Yexo>rortom: does it also desync after loading a savegame on the server?
15:59<planetmaker>as compared to before?
15:59<rortom>from one savegame
15:59<planetmaker>rortom: that's not an answer :) Some of the grfs may desync under certain cirucumstances
15:59<rortom>it ran quite fine for ~50 game years
16:00<rortom>i thought the openttdcoop guys only use stable grfs?
16:00<planetmaker>well. Yes. But you never know :)
16:00<planetmaker>And it's not always the fault of the grfs :P
16:00<rortom>mh, true :\
16:01<planetmaker>so: do you use other grfs than before? And if so: which?
16:01<rortom>i started the server yesterday, not used before
16:01<rortom>i can give you a GRF list if you want
16:01<planetmaker>sure :) URL?

16:10<SpComb>Bjarni: send absolute info, not deltas

16:11<SpComb>but myes, it's a bit silly with a TCP-based network protocol
16:11<SpComb>desyncs are bugs
16:11<planetmaker>Yexo: yes. I've locally a bit different, but not really different.
16:11<@Bjarni>but it would be nice to have the savegames to compare when it goes wrong :)
16:11<planetmaker>It's a bit better wrt coding style :)
16:11<rortom>i have no idea what would be the best solution
16:12<planetmaker>I can pm you, if you like.
16:12<@Bjarni>9 lines during 1 sec o_O
16:12<rortom>but it would be great to have to identify the source
16:12<@Bjarni>somehow I think it was because the internet lagged and stored all the packages in the router or something :/
16:13<planetmaker>actually. My local copy, Yexo, now applies to current trunk
16:13<planetmaker>the old one doesn't
16:14<Yexo>planetmaker: can you upload that somewhere?
16:14<Aali>planetmaker: are you the one maintaining the IS patch?

16:15<Aali>planetmaker: i see
16:15<Aali>and no-one is really working on it?

16:20<planetmaker>you've more experience than me though. So... :)
16:20<@Bjarni>no guesswork... just hardcore savegame decoding

16:23-!-fonso [] has joined #openttd
16:24<@Bjarni>but using uncompressed savegames helps a lot :)
16:24<yorick>you could just uncompress them...
16:24<@Bjarni>you could start by using something like diff to figure out what difference you have
16:24-!-vvv444 [] has joined #openttd
16:25<@Bjarni><yorick> you could just uncompress them... <-- yeah, but compressing a savegame every tick would demand a fast CPU
16:25<yorick>saving an uncompressed savegame every tick would demand some hd speed
16:25<planetmaker>he :P
16:26<@Bjarni>don't do it on a remote drive
16:26<yorick>@calc 30*74
16:26<@DorpsGek>yorick: 2220
16:26<@Bjarni>and you shouldn't use too big maps either

16:28<Yexo>isn't it 30 ticks per second and 74 ticks per ingame day?
16:28<yorick>you have a point
16:28-!-iwein [] has quit [Quit: iwein]
16:28<@Bjarni>as I said: it's demanding, but once you got the savegames it will be a whole lot easier to figure out why it desyncs
16:28<planetmaker>90MB/s is a lot for current PCs, too. I doubt that most will cope.
16:29<@Bjarni>I did this even on the old computer
16:29<@Bjarni>the trick is to limit the size of the map
16:29<Yexo>if you know when it desyncs, you don't have to save the savegames for a long time, and of course a lot can be cached in ram
16:29<@Bjarni>and not having 65k vehicles
16:29<planetmaker>you only need to save one savegame: when the sync check gives you a true.
16:30<planetmaker>but then you better have both: server and client :)
16:30<Yexo>that's only enough if you enable syncs checks every tick
16:30<planetmaker>but maybe via a new docommand :)
16:30<@Bjarni>only having the client would make little sense
16:30<yorick>Yexo: you want to store 30 savegames each 30 mb in ram every second?
16:30<planetmaker>no need to store uncompressed.
16:31<Yexo>yorick: why 30mb each?
16:31<@Bjarni>no time to compress that amount of data
16:31<yorick>you mean yu can compress 30 savegames each second?
16:31<@Bjarni>30 mb sounds like a lot
16:31<Yexo>depending on map size
16:31<Yexo>but still 30mb sounds very big
16:31<@Bjarni>are you sure you aren't using some huge map/game?
16:31<planetmaker>still. 90% compression is hardly feasable with any data.
16:31<yorick>30mb is 2048x2048
16:31<planetmaker>which is oversized
16:31<Yexo>just don't do desync debugging on that big maps :)
16:32<@Bjarni>how many times do I have to say that you should use a "small" map?
16:32<@Bjarni>I did it on a 256x256 map
16:32<@Bjarni>and I didn't have any problems saving it on an old and slow HD
16:32<yorick>you need your reproduceable desync to fit on a 256 map
16:33<planetmaker>which should be no problem
16:33<@Bjarni>then you better get started making such a game
16:33<@Bjarni>if it's a bug that happens most of the time it should be fairly easy to trigger it
16:33<@Bjarni>3 eyes?
16:34<@Bjarni>are you a mutant?
16:34<@Belugas>that's his nose, up in the air!
16:35<@Bjarni>mutant nose :/
16:35<yorick>he has a pointy nose
16:35<rortom>what about blackbox testing
16:35<@Bjarni>which means....
16:35<@Bjarni>A WITCH!
16:35<@Bjarni>burn him!
16:35<rortom>start client and server with certain GRF settings
16:35<Prof_Frink>Bjarni: A pointy nose doesn't make him a witch.
16:35<rortom>when it desyncs, diff the savegames

16:41<@Bjarni>we should just disable it with ifdef unless we actually need it
16:41<SpComb>tick........... tick............ tick............

18:02<@Bjarni>I asked if people were reading what I wrote, not if people cared :P
18:02<@Bjarni>actually I guess you use some DNS to access the internet
18:02<FauxFaux>tcp-over-dns ftw.
18:03<@Bjarni>but I guess you are using some sort of DNS anyway :)
18:03<Aali>no there's actually an app that lets you use IP over DNS
18:04<FauxFaux>There's actually a standard for dns over tcp, it makes kind of sense.
18:04<Aali>its very handy for circumventing those pay-for-access services, because they usually allow DNS lookups
18:05<Aali>not that i would ever do that
18:05<Aali>seeing as its illegal and whatnot
18:06<@Bjarni>what kind of interesting pay-for-access services are there?

19:13<planetmaker>TrueBrain: easy to check :)
19:13<TrueBrain>(why do people car eif others can read their vote? Is it that important that others don't find out what your vote?)
19:13<TrueBrain>planetmaker: depends, I can give you a few situations, you won't be able to tell :)
19:13<ben_goodger>TrueBrain: conceivable, yes
19:13<planetmaker>it makes it impossible to buy votes.
19:13<ben_goodger>I can think of situations where I wouldn't want people to know I'd voted for a particular person
19:14<ben_goodger>such as if I voted for mccain
19:14<ben_goodger>I'd instantly feel so dirty that I'd crumble into dust if anyone found out
19:14<TrueBrain>ben_goodger: yeah, you really should make sure nobody finds out about that :)
19:14<TrueBrain>but if you have an opinion which you refuse to tell publicly, I suggest not to vote at all :)
19:14<ben_goodger>good idea
19:14<planetmaker>no. why?
19:15<ben_goodger>well, when there's an election in the UK, I will vote --- not that it will matter, the lib dems will win my constituency and very few other constituencies, without my help
19:15<TrueBrain>still, voting feels good :)
19:15<planetmaker>yep :)
19:15<TrueBrain>at least you can say you tried :)
19:15<TrueBrain>and, when they do something stupid: I didn't vote for those people!
19:16<planetmaker>hehe :)
19:16<+glx>many people didn't vote for our president (even some who voted for him)
19:16<TrueBrain>then again, that might be a reason to keep your vote private .. I always annoying my friends with it, when they complain about a given person .. then I just say: but YOU voted for him
19:17<DaleStan><TrueBrain> but if you have an opinion which you refuse to tell publicly, <-- "refuse to tell" isn't the issue. The issue is "my boss says I will vote for so-and-so if I value my job."
19:17<TrueBrain>DaleStan: fair enough
19:18<Nite_Owl>Need to Feed - Later All
19:18<TrueBrain>but I doubt your boss is trying to figure out what you voted by some advanced sniffers ;)
19:18-!-Nite_Owl [] has quit [Quit: Read You Soon]
19:18<planetmaker>exactly that: buying a vote :) vote for me or die :P
19:18<TrueBrain>last week I read that people can even monitor your (physical) keyboard hits ... :s
19:19<planetmaker>nothing new. It uses elecricity. So it emits radiation.
19:19<+glx>hacking the webcam?
19:19<TrueBrain>planetmaker: still, proof-of-concept was created
19:19<@Rubidium>and each key makes a slightly different sound when pressed
19:19<@Bjarni><Sacro> I think I have a bug in autoreplace <--- I really like when people say that they found a bug and then they shut up :P
19:19<TrueBrain>that it is possible, one thing .. that people do it :p
19:19<planetmaker>even that proof-of-concept is at least a decade old
19:19<TrueBrain>Rubidium / glx: no, by radiation
19:20<TrueBrain>planetmaker: well, it was kind of new in several ways .. as they were pretty far away, and the keyboard was both protected and via a wire ..
19:20<+glx>hmm I should have use DorpsGek to say that :)
19:20<TrueBrain>glx: yews
19:21<planetmaker>TrueBrain: I'm pretty sure I read a couple of years ago that exactly that was done from the house on the other street side. Tracking the keyboard operations and monitor display using directional antennae
19:21<TrueBrain>monitor display? Now that is hard (and kind of unbelievable :p)
19:21<planetmaker>It was CRTs back then :)
19:21<+glx>my brother can see mouse wheel on the TV
19:21<TrueBrain>reading a 50Hz changing signal, on a raster of 1000x1000 ...
19:21<planetmaker>yes, but you can do that via lock-in.
19:22<planetmaker>you got the line frequency. It's quite easy. Like TV signals.
19:22<TrueBrain>still, reading that signal from a distance
19:22<TrueBrain>and still reconstruct the image
19:23<planetmaker>I did it in the advanced physics course - with a piece of wire tapping the satellite tv signal.
19:23<planetmaker>a crt has the same signal
19:23<planetmaker>you just need good amplification and and lock-in on the new line signal
19:23<TrueBrain>planetmaker: there is a difference, and a big one for that matter
19:24<planetmaker>not too mcuh
19:24<+glx>planetmaker: you had access to the wire
19:24<TrueBrain>the amplification part I don't see happening for CRT signal ..
19:24<planetmaker>glx: the wire was the antennae.
19:24<planetmaker>the amplification has to be on your side - not crt
19:25<planetmaker>it's an alternating ray of electrons. If it switches monitor side, it's a very clear signal.
19:25<planetmaker>doesn't work anymore in the time of TFTs :)
19:26<planetmaker>it's afterall guided by an AC magnetic field.
19:26<+glx><planetmaker> doesn't work anymore in the time of TFTs :) <-- light guns don't work well either now
19:26<planetmaker>well... no magnetic
19:29<TrueBrain>planetmaker: I really have no problems believing that getting keyboard activity is easy .. but CRT screens .. I really need to see that with my own eyes :)
19:29<TrueBrain>I can't see a way an antenna can receive 1000x1000 raster
19:30<TrueBrain>or it should be able to read at the speed of the electron-canon ..
19:30<planetmaker>TrueBrain: you know each line termination and each frame termination

19:30<Aali>hmm, what was the name of that project?
19:31<TrueBrain>Aali: CERN
19:31<planetmaker>the hardest part is to get the actuall brightness which is the intensity of the beam.
19:31<Aali>some guys were making CRT screens transmit AM radio
19:31<TrueBrain>(random question, random answer ;))
19:31<planetmaker>which also emits quite a bit of radiation
19:31<TrueBrain>planetmaker: I would love to see such thing in action :)
19:31<TrueBrain>I really won't believe it until I see it :)

19:33<planetmaker>that link's for you, though :)
19:33<TrueBrain>monitoring a CPU .. now that is fun :p
19:36<Sacro>Bjarni: I have nothing in mylist of trains
19:36<Sacro>but some stuff in wagons
19:36<planetmaker> <--- there are NATO standards regarding that... :P
19:37<SmatZ>planetmaker: tl;dr but yeah, I was scared after wating the 1984 movie ... and comparing it with today's reality :)
19:37<planetmaker>SmatZ: a frightening comparison, I think :S
19:39<SmatZ>I wonder what will be the reality in 2043
19:39<TrueBrain>planetmaker: nice arcticle; but clearly it hugely depends on thef act a cable is attached :)
19:39<planetmaker>TrueBrain: to what?
19:39<TrueBrain>to the CRT
19:39<TrueBrain>acting like an antenna
19:39<planetmaker>If you use a wireless keyboard you surely transmit the data directly. That's even easier then.
19:40<planetmaker>or crt. Show me one without.
19:40<TrueBrain>it is not about that; it is about how the signals are received :)
19:40<TrueBrain>as I said, I saw no way to receive a 1000x1000 raster
19:40-!-[com]buster [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
19:40<TrueBrain>but signals from a single cable, okay, I can see that working :)
19:40<planetmaker>which also doesn#t use wireless transmission. Of course, the cable may act as antenna :)
19:40<TrueBrain>which makes it wireless ;)
19:41-!-[com]buster [] has joined #openttd
19:41<TrueBrain>anyway, nice article, and you ar eright, reading CRTs should be possible in that case :)
19:41<TrueBrain>Now for real: good night :)

21:12<Sacro>what does "x = x++" actually do?

21:13<Aali>Bjarni: we dont talk or sit next to each other on busses/trams
21:13<Aali>its sad but true
21:13<ln>thingwath: most likely the name of the language.

21:13<ln>thingwath: slovak?
21:13<@Bjarni>you don't sit next to each other in the busses, so you have to be drunk?
21:14<thingwath>No, that would be "Slovensky"
21:14<@Bjarni>how about trying not to be drunk and you will realise that people will stop avoiding you
21:14<Aali>Bjarni: no, we have to be drunk to express our true feelings
21:16<@Bjarni>you are weird
21:16<thingwath>oh, of course, slovenia, now I understand
21:16<Aali>i dont like it either, but thats just the way it is
21:17<@Bjarni>no it's not
21:17<Char>why is it impossible to build signals on bridges?

21:18<@Bjarni>Aali: ever considered not being drunk for a change and see what happens?
21:18<Runr>I guess it wouldn't make any sense, Char
21:18<thingwath>oh, it's tuesday
21:18<@Bjarni>you know nobody sane would want a drunk guy
21:19<Sacro>hmm, int i = 0; i = i++ gives different results in C and C#
21:20<Sacro>how strange
21:20<thingwath>I think that i = i++; is defined somehow in C#
21:21<thingwath>in C it can't be anything

21:23<@Bjarni>you drink vodka?

21:24<thingwath>last week, I spent more on beer than food
21:24<@Bjarni>you know that every time you drink, you affect your brain

21:24<Aali>i do have vodka, but i'm not drinking that shit
21:24-!-lobstar is now known as lobster
21:24<@Bjarni>every time you get drunk and sober, you lower the brain's resistance against that scenario

21:25-!-ln-- [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:26<thingwath>it won't suffer without alcohol?
21:27<@Bjarni>when you drink alcohol it slows down your brain
21:28<@Bjarni>the body tries to compensate by releasing chemicals to make the brain more active and less chemicals to slow down the brain
21:28<@Bjarni>once the alcohol is gone again, those chemicals harm the brain until the balance is corrected once again
21:28<Aali>Bjarni: do you ever drink?
21:29<@Bjarni>the difference is that the last time the brain is out of balance, it's too active and it's actually hurting it
21:29<thingwath>ok :)
21:29<@Bjarni>eventually it can't take it anymore and the person becomes an alcoholic to avoid the harmful "getting sober" period
21:30<@Bjarni><Aali> Bjarni: do you ever drink? <-- isn't that besides the point?
21:30<thingwath>Well, I'm not alcoholic yet.
21:30<Aali>i'm just asking
21:30<@Bjarni>if I told you that you shouldn't swim in icy water, would you ignore this statement if I decided to take a swim?
21:31<welshdragon>i would
21:31<@Bjarni>well... I don't drink
21:31<@Bjarni>I don't like the taste
21:31<Aali>i wouldn't swim in icy water, can't stand the cold

21:34<@Bjarni>telling the effects of being drunk
21:35<thingwath>I think we know them, unfortunately.
21:35<Aali>Bjarni: I'm not saying you should drink, i know a lot of people who dont drink out of principle, and i respect them
21:35<ben_goodger>damn straight
21:35*welshdragon scuttles off
21:36<@Bjarni>so if I don't drink out of principle, it's ok, but it's weird that I don't drink because I don't like the taste?
21:36<Char>watching a working train system can be pretty relaxing :)
21:36<Char>however, i need some sleep.
21:36<@Bjarni>working train system?

21:38<Char>but the swiss railway system is indeed pretty good
21:38<Aali>Bjarni: i really dont care why you dont drink, i just hope this wont be problem in the future :P
21:39<@Bjarni>I just told you that your brain can't deal with getting sober after drinking
21:40<thingwath>my ingame train system has collapsed, again, and I don't know how to make working one
21:40<Aali>i'm pretty good at that though, never get hungover

21:41<thingwath>thousands of people at each station...
21:41<Char>build more trains :P

21:42<Char>whats that?
21:42<Aali>Bjarni: then what are you talking about? I say its everyone's right to get hammered every now and then
21:43<@Bjarni>I never denied that
21:43<@Bjarni>I just stated that it's a really bad idea
21:43<@Bjarni>because the brain remembers every time you do it and eventually it gives in
21:44<@Bjarni>and that's not nice if it happens

21:47<Char>cargodest seems like fun
21:47<@Bjarni>I'm not going to argue with a drunk about health issues about drinking
21:47<Aali>sure i dont ever really lose control, but friends of mine do, and they still come out the other end without "losing everything"
21:47<Char>will have to look into that
21:47<Char>but for now, sleep is more important
21:48<thingwath>Char: well, fun, mostly it's so hopeless sight :/
21:48<@Bjarni>Aali: you still don't get what I'm talking about. Say your brain has 1000 HP. Every time you drink it will lose some. Eventually it will reach 0 and your brain snaps
21:49<@Bjarni>how long will it take?... nobody can tell
21:49<@Bjarni>will it to people who are drinking heavily for a year or two... most likely not as this is a long term effect
21:49<SmatZ>everytime you breath your brain loses HP
21:50<SmatZ>but sometimes, new neural connections are made
21:50<@Bjarni>why do I have the feeling that you guys don't believe me?
21:50<thingwath>We do.
21:50<SmatZ>chain is as strong as its weakest part... and drinking kills the weakest parts ;-)
21:50<thingwath>We just can't help ourselves. Have to drink. Drink.
21:50<@Bjarni><SmatZ> but sometimes, new neural connections are made <-- I'm not talking about neural connections. I'm talking about how the brain deals with chances of chemicals in the blood to control brain activity
21:50<thingwath>And last beer is gone :(
21:51<SmatZ>Bjarni: I believe you, I am just not taking this discussion serious :)
21:51<@Bjarni>you have a point
21:51<Aali>Bjarni: ooh, openttd reference, i like that :P, but yes, i do believe drinking is associated with hazards, but there's also alot of good things that can come out of it (responsible drinking, that is)
21:52<thingwath>good things that can come out of drinking?
21:52<@Bjarni>responsible drinking will not make people drunk :P
21:53<SmatZ>mankind has always abused drugs ... and we haven't died out yet
21:53<@Bjarni>but I guess my time will be better spent sleeping than arguing with some random drunk guy on the internet
21:53<@Bjarni>SmatZ: we will
21:53<thingwath>drunk people cannot type
21:53<Aali>thingwath: people tend to open up and share their innermost feelings when drunk
21:53<SmatZ>Bjarni: because of alcohol / drugs?
21:53<@Bjarni>thingwath: yeah... Aali stopped making sense ages ago :P
21:53<thingwath>Aali: and that is good thing? :D
21:53<SmatZ>nah... because of stupid ideas of mighty people
21:54<Aali>thingwath: of course it is
21:54<@Bjarni>SmatZ: I didn't say that. I said that we will be extinct eventually
21:54<@Bjarni>it depends on stuff like how many nuclear powerplants we build
21:55<SmatZ>why nuclear powerplants?
21:55<Aali>i have been really drunk since that last gin&tonic went down and i can still type
21:55<@Bjarni>they are radioactive
21:55<SmatZ>so are you
21:55<Sacro>uranium -> nuclear pp -> waste -> towns
21:55<@Bjarni>if too much leak, then we will not be humans anymore
21:56-!-Char [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
21:56<@Bjarni>and right now a whole lot of new nuclear powerplants are being build
21:56<SmatZ>well, yeah
21:56<@Bjarni>however nobody knows what to do with the radioactive waste
21:56<thingwath>we will always be humans, maybe just not the same ones as we were yesterday
21:56<SmatZ>I want to have many children, so my clan has chance to survive any nuclear war and similiar possible situations :)
21:57<Sacro>Bjarni: find a country we don't like to offload it to
21:57<Sacro>america or something
21:57<SmatZ>but it's hard to find a girl who would like to have many children for this purpose :)
21:57<Aali>SmatZ: you're crazy
21:57<SmatZ>Aali: yeah, they say so
21:57<@Bjarni>SmatZ: you should tell that it's for a different purpose
21:58<@Bjarni>like getting more votes for your future political party
21:58<SmatZ>or have many visitors by our graves when we are dead :-P
21:59<SmatZ>mm may I should try to donor sperm...
21:59<SmatZ>well ... better go to bed, nn all :)
21:59<@Bjarni>now if you get 6 children and each of those get 6 children, then you will get a whole lot of grandchildren
21:59<@Bjarni><SmatZ> well ... better go to bed, nn all :) <-- that's a good plan too.... if it contains a girl
21:59<thingwath>I want a statue!
22:00<@Bjarni>otherwise it's kind of like not working for your plan :P
22:01<thingwath>it's long-term strategy, of course
22:01<SmatZ>Bjarni: hehe :-) no, there isn't a girl nearby
22:03-!-ben_goodger [] has quit [Quit: Good pie!]
22:05<@Bjarni>ok, time for bed
