02:56<@Rubidium>a version that breaks way more than it fixes
02:58<SirSquid1ess>lol.

03:09<@Rubidium>no, 10.5 ofcourse!
03:09<@Rubidium>bah... lag :(
03:19*Rubidium ponders taking dial-up for its incerased speeds; it ought to beat Fetched 176kB in 3min 7s (937B/s)
03:22<dihedral>depends on the location of those 176KB
03:23<@Rubidium>by car, when all traffic lights are green and there's no traffic, yet staying with speed limits: less than those 3min 7s

06:38<Fast2>SmatZ: The video is made by the "Piratenpatei".
06:46<@Rubidium>Fast2: thus? It's not true by definition and whatever the current government says is true by definition?
06:51<Fast2>Rubidium: I don't think I said this. (As far as I comprehended/got your message)
06:54<@Rubidium>with the bashing of those pirate(partie)s lately saying something is made by them gives it a "it's bad/incorrect/a lie" hidden message
06:54<SmatZ>Fast2: just another bonus point for them ;)
06:55<SmatZ>Rubidium: bashing? not here... but maybe it would be better if they were "bashed", they are hardly ever in news here :-/
06:55<SmatZ>(our piratenpartei)
06:55<@Rubidium>it's more in general; the whole pirate bay stuff
06:56<Fast2>Rubidium: The opposite is true for me (because I like the Piraten)

07:05<@Rubidium>Fast2: I don't like the legalised blackmailing in the media industry either
07:07<@Rubidium>(or in the banking or in the healthcare or ...)
07:08<SmatZ>blackmailing in healthcare?
07:09<SmatZ>prescripting intentionaly pills from one given company (who sponsored your "study" holidays?)
07:10<@Rubidium>"you won't get paid if you don't do this or that"
07:11<@Rubidium>be it prescribe the cheapest drugs even if they obviously don't work or saying that they don't insure you at all because you have a pre-existing condition, e.g. astma
07:11<Forked>I read "laid" and not "paid" .. but I guess it's all the same
07:12<Eddi|zuHause>haha :p
07:12<SmatZ>:-)
07:13<SmatZ>[13:11:08] <Rubidium> be it prescribe the cheapest drugs even if they obviously don't work or saying that they don't insure you at all because you have a pre-existing condition, e.g. astma <== that's why I don't support commercial health insurance
07:13<SmatZ>similiar, paying higher car insurance because you are <30 years old
07:13<SmatZ>but if you had to pay because you are black, it would be discrimination
07:14<SmatZ>or woman :-p
07:14<@Rubidium>or old!
07:14<SmatZ>hehe very true
07:14<TrueBrain>or SmatZ! (what is the conversation about? :p)
07:15<SmatZ>;-)
07:15<SmatZ>TrueBrain: disadvantages of commercial insurrance
07:15<TrueBrain>ah ;)
07:18<SmatZ>though then politics use arguments like "why should people pay higher insurrance when there are smokers who take more money from the system?"
07:18<SmatZ>attacking on right-winded people's envy
07:18<SmatZ>which is funny as envy is often thought as property of socialists :-p
07:19<SmatZ>society (nation) should work as whole, support each other
07:20<@Rubidium>oh SmatZ... with those ideas your a communists in the US (though I agree)
07:20<SmatZ>when there are too many smokers, it's a problem of society, and there are other ways to reduce smoking (ban of ads, higher taxes)
07:20<fonsinchen>society and nation are different concepts - especially in this context. The difference is exactly that between a left-wing and a right-wing argument ...
07:21<SmatZ>for extreme-right-wing it's a difference
07:22<fonsinchen>nation doesn't include immigrants and defines inclusion by heritage.
07:22<Noldo>why should people pay higher taxes because of the self inflicted health problems of the smokers?
07:22<fonsinchen>society defines inclusion by place of living
07:23<fonsinchen>I mean the term "nation" and the term "society"
07:24<SmatZ>Noldo: because they live in the same country
07:24<SmatZ>(to avoid use of society/nation)
07:25<SmatZ>as a note, I am not smoker
07:26<SmatZ>also, once you start to differentiate between smokers and non-smokers, there is just a little step to differentiating between people with "healthy" and "unhealthy" genes
07:26<Noldo>one is an action a person chooses and one is not
07:26<SmatZ>(also, when someone smokes 1 cigarette/week, is he a smoker? 1/year? 1/day?)
07:27<SmatZ>Noldo: then you can say overweight people should pay more
07:27<SmatZ>then you have to decide whether it's because of their genes or not
07:27<SmatZ>and blah blah
07:27<SmatZ>it's simplest not to differentiate between people
07:28<SmatZ>also most equal for all
07:28<@Rubidium>Noldo: but is being young/old or having astma something you choose to be?
07:28<SmatZ>apart from spokers consuming more money from the healthcare system, I don't think their life is any better (and they die younger anyway)
07:29<SpComb^>555555555555
07:29<Noldo>Rubidium: I sense a trap, but no it isn't
07:29<SmatZ>I am using this example of smokers because they are often thought as group of people who should pay higher health insurrance
07:29<SmatZ>and I am explaining why I think it's bad attitude from the beginning
07:30<@Rubidium>Noldo: then why are people with astma or people with old-age diabetes not accepted for certain health insurances?

07:32<@Rubidium>if you did something yourself that's extremely dangerous and get sick because of that it's, in my opinion, another story than when it's because of your body being stupid
07:32<SmatZ>and that's what we are talking about - is it good it is a business?
07:32<SmatZ>sorry, have to go :-x
07:32<SmatZ>I will read logs :)

07:33<TrueBrain>bye SmatZ :)
07:34<Chris_Booth>just to add to the fat people argument, lots of airline in the USA have started to charge fat people for 2 seats
07:34<Chris_Booth>is that a good or a bad thing?
07:37<@Rubidium>Chris_Booth: if the fatness isn't caused by a valid medical condition I'd say it's fair, although... it might be better to just weigh them with clothes and luggage and calculate the price based on that
07:39<Forked>it's not the airlines fault that some people weigh more than others.. should they take the extra cost? life is unfair, not just for the heavy people.
07:40<Sacro>damn i misesd a good convo
07:41<Sacro>i love discussing the US healthcare system
07:41<Chris_Booth>well Forked the airlines dont charge small people less do they? well in a sence they do with kids but with if your a dwarf or a midget you still pay the same
07:41<Sacro>< socialist
07:41<Sacro>i hate the arbitrary weight limits on luggage
07:41<Sacro>how come if it is 5kg over it gets penalised
07:41<Noldo>Sacro: socialist by US standards?
07:41<Sacro>wheras if i'm a fat bastard it's fine
07:42*Sacro will next try eating his luggage
07:42<Chris_Booth>well you know the sollution wear all your luggage
07:42<Sacro>Yeah
07:42<Sacro>it'd be cosy
07:43<Chris_Booth>what i find most annoying is flight to skiing resorts airoprts they charge you more to take your skiis on the plane

08:20<Eddi|zuHause>Chris_Booth: did you ever bring skis to a non-skiing resort?
08:24<Eddi|zuHause>Chris_Booth: increased demand allows for increased prices. primary rule of capitalism
08:25<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: that's the secondary rule! Primary rule is: short term profit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
08:26<Eddi|zuHause>Rubidium: "primary rule" doesn't mean there's only one such rule
08:26<+glx>and don't care about long term problems ;)
08:26<Eddi|zuHause>it could be a set of primary rules
08:27<@Rubidium>but then they would be equal

12:02<yorick>oskari89: if you're using path signals, use normal ones
12:02<yorick>they turn faster
12:02<yorick>which makes it surprisingly less annoying
12:03<yorick>because they turn back too
12:04<oskari89>I'm using path singals always.
12:04<yorick>there's your disadvantage
12:05<yorick>they don't automatically turn back instantly with path signals
12:05<yorick>just don't use path signals when normal signals would do exactly the same
12:05<yorick>;)
12:06<oskari89>It cannot be configured?
12:06<oskari89>No turning at all?
12:07<yorick>it probably can
12:08<Rhamphoryncus>I missed half this conversation..

12:09<yorick>17:59 < oskari89> Can automatic train turning when waiting a green light on
12:09<yorick> signal be turned off?
12:10<Rhamphoryncus>Ah, there's a variable for that
12:11<Rhamphoryncus>I actually wish it was faster too. What happens more often is they turn because some track gets destroyed. Then I have to manually turn them back
12:11<yorick>they turn back automatically with normal signals
12:12<Rhamphoryncus>they'd eventually turn back with path signals.. just takes very long
12:12<Rhamphoryncus>And this is with one-way path signals
12:16<oskari89>Is the variable on config?
12:18<Rhamphoryncus>it's an internal one, you can set it from the config file or from the console

12:43<Eddi|zuHause>what do i do with such remarks?
12:43<@Rubidium>is the hardware still within warranty?
12:44<@Rubidium>if so, definitely let them make a notification about this that if your proc breaks on end-of-warranty+1 you can claim you've reported it before the warranty ended and they deemed it unneeded to replace
12:44<_ln>"dear vendor, my computer has a 9400400000000152, can i get a new one through warranty?"
12:47<Eddi|zuHause>no, my computer is definitely out ouf warranty for years
12:48<@Rubidium>then implement/review your backup strategy of that machine

15:17<frosch123>of course they can be built entirely on water

15:19<frosch123>for sure not this year
15:19<andythenorth>:D
15:19<andythenorth>would they actually be fun / useful though?
15:20<@Rubidium>andythenorth: yes, yes, in try 1 it would be an extension-ish of airports which would then be extended for road stations and finally possibly even for train stations (routing trains over your own layout)
15:20<andythenorth>so docks and road stations would move to a state machine?
15:20<frosch123>but that will cause lots of trouble for pathfinders, similiar to the current pbs-multiple-waypoint-for-station-issue
15:21<frosch123>andythenorth: docks more likely than roadstops, and both far more likely than trainstations
15:22<andythenorth>that's fine by me. I'm not much in favour of state machine for roadstops or docks

15:42<MyCatVerbs>Rubidium: Urgh, why would they want that? That would be mindblowingly slow.
15:43<MyCatVerbs>Not that I'm saying C# and Java are both ridiculously slow or anything, but OpenTTD is written to benefit from the set of optimisations that GCC can be gotten to perform easily.
15:44<Alberth>C and C++ are out, C# and Java are in, perhaps?
15:44<MyCatVerbs>Rather than the optimisations that a VM will perform for you, even.
15:45<@Belugas>shit
15:45<@Belugas>shit
15:46<frosch123>MyCatVerbs: i would guess 60% of all programmers know only one language, and think it is the best to rule them all
15:46*Alberth offers a 'yeah' to Belugas
15:46<MyCatVerbs>frosch123: Really? That sounds depressing.
15:47<@Belugas>anyone knows of an api in windows to call, in order to verify if an OLE object is registered WITHOUT having to deal with registries?
15:47*frosch123 never dealt with ole stuff
15:47<MyCatVerbs>frosch123: I have no particular foundation for this belief, but I suspect that the majority of programmers actually know at least one and a half. Namely, whatever they write serverside (annoyingly often, PHP), plus half-knowing javascript.
15:48*Alberth never programmed a Win* machine
15:48<MyCatVerbs>On account of webapps happening to be cheaper to make than native GUI apps, and in a way more stable.
15:48<ikarus2k>frosch123: dunno, I know actionscript (yey!) and a bit of a couple others (php, JS). they all suck
15:48<Xaroth><@Rubidium> people are/were thinking about writing OpenTTD in C#/Java, yet I haven't seen such an implementation << saw it too, the C# code wasn't optimized enough to run anything semi-decent

15:49<Xaroth>for performance stuff, the lower level you go, the better it gets.

15:50<+glx>screen repaint is nasty with C# (it's weirder on vista)
15:50<MyCatVerbs>ikarus2k: oh, you just started a holy war. :)
15:50<frosch123>however, the whole windows world does not know awk, sed, yacc and co; so they write every simple text processing/code generation in c/c++/java/c# ...
15:50<ikarus2k>MyCatVerbs: lol, that was inevitable ;)
15:50<MyCatVerbs>ikarus2k: namely, I really really really honestly do think that you're incorrect about javascript sucking. :)
15:50<Xaroth>C#, like java, as easy as they are, don't have the performance that you need for a game like ttd
15:51<Sacro>C# does
15:51<MyCatVerbs>ikarus2k: 1. get Firebug, 2. learn that you now have a Javascript REPL, 3. learn how much fun a REPL is to use, 4. rejoice!
15:51<MyCatVerbs>Xaroth: Oh, you'd be surprised. You have to mess with the structure of your program a little, though.
15:51<Xaroth>a little?
15:52<ikarus2k>MyCatVerbs: :P. I hate having to code in 3-4 different languages, just cuz people are scared of flash
15:53<MyCatVerbs>Xaroth: Yes. "A little" in the same sense that programmers use the term "not trivial". :)

17:23<ikarus2k>Rubidium: do you know anything about the California High speed rail line?
17:23<Zuu>Yea, that is also annoying. Good thing. Gothenburg (our scenod largest city) got a route planer for walk and bike traffic.
17:24<Zuu>But that only helps if you live there...
17:24<Zuu>Which most people do not do.
17:26<@Rubidium>ikarus2k: besides that it won't be happening?
17:26<ikarus2k>what?
17:26<ikarus2k>is it officially dead?
17:27<@Rubidium>oh... they apparantly voted for it... crazy money spending Californians
17:27<Eddi|zuHause>that was before they ran out of money?
17:28<@Rubidium>Eddi|zuHause: yes
17:28<ikarus2k>lol
17:28<@Rubidium>but *any* bill that increases taxes gets automatically rejected, so... I really doubt that they can keep paying for it
17:28<ikarus2k>I hope Obama will jump in and save things
17:29<MyCatVerbs>Rubidium: nah, all he has to do is cut the entire Navy, budget solved. :)
17:29<@Rubidium>putting federal money in a bottomless pit doesn't save them, it just keeps them longer afloat
17:29<MyCatVerbs>Or, more likely, just print bills.
17:29<ikarus2k>:(
17:30<@Rubidium>MyCatVerbs: a) California doesn't have a navy, b) California, or the US for that matter, controls the printing of money
17:30<ikarus2k>I really had hoped for high speed rail in america
17:30<MyCatVerbs>Rubidium: oh sorry, ikarus2k mentioned Obama, I jumped in without checking the upscroll. I thought you were talking about something at the Federal level.
17:33<@Rubidium>ikarus2k: cheap petrol + cheap cars + cheap aircraft => trains aren't profitable
17:33<ikarus2k>:(
17:33<@Rubidium>and the distance is just huge
17:34<ikarus2k>that should make it more profitable
17:34<MyCatVerbs>Petrol won't stay cheap. For freight, the long distances will amplify the benefits many times over.
17:34<MyCatVerbs>s/will/would/
17:35<ikarus2k>how about the acela express?
17:35<ikarus2k>that seems to be holding on well
17:35<ikarus2k>wikipedia says it's even had an increase in passengers lately
17:35<MyCatVerbs>And frankly, we all know that there exists nothing else in the domain of our lord Sawyer as profitable as a half-kiloton monorail train blasting its way across flat plains with an enormous load of coal. :)
17:36<ikarus2k>^^^ =))
17:36<Zuu>The hopes are not that high. I was in Vancouver, which is on the other side of the border up north. This summer they finished a new sky train line (like metro but most of their is above ground), but they havn't built any longer stations than their currently very short stations on their other lines. The trains are just three cars long and the platforms does not have room for more cars. It is driverless so they can probably hav
17:36<Zuu>e a quite short margin between the trains but still their trains are very short. So it has been a nice thing for the existing commuters, but they will not be able to take any major market shares with it from the car driving population.
17:36<@Rubidium>ikarus2k: much shorter distance, at least Washington-NY. Though taxi+aircraft is about as fast as acela, some 15 minutes faster with the train or so)
17:36<@Rubidium>even then, ever seen what Los Angeles actually is?

17:38<Zuu>MyCatVerbs: Actually if I am not mistaken the average speed on freight is higher in the states than in Europe. But I'm not 100 sure.
17:38<Zuu>(on rail that is)
17:38<@Rubidium>a large number of smaller towns with, AFAIK, not really a public transportation network to speak of
17:39<ikarus2k>oh man, that's such an oppurtunity
17:39<@Rubidium>Zuu: wouldn't be strange; those huge trains going non-stop from east-to-west because there's (almost) no passenger transportation
17:39<ikarus2k>there was this tale of 2 shoemakers going to india
17:39<Rhamphoryncus>Is there some way to tell where make is failing, or trace the commands it's executing?
17:39<ikarus2k>the frist reported back home "what the hell am i gonna do here, nobody is wearing shoes"
17:39<Zuu>And not 4 different electricity systems and problems with train driver license only being valid in each member state is it is in Europe/EU.
17:40<ikarus2k>the other was exhalted "this is great, so many people to sell shoes too"
17:40<Rhamphoryncus>ah, make -d
17:40<ikarus2k>Zuu: and nevertheless, we have intl high speed rail :)
17:41<Zuu>I was more refering to goods trains in the EU.
17:41<Zuu>But sure
17:41<Zuu>Though, up north we are still waiting for it.
17:42<ikarus2k>I'm reallly curious what bombardier will come up with these years
17:42<ikarus2k>they've been buying EU train builders like crazy
17:43<ikarus2k>they should be done combining the different technologies by now
17:43<ikarus2k>(i hope)
17:43<ikarus2k>then again, wait 1-2 years and China will present the fruits of its recent purchases ;)
17:44<@Rubidium>a bankrupt US?
17:44<@Rubidium>a worthless dollar?
17:44<ikarus2k>they wont let that happen
17:44<ikarus2k>they need the market
17:45<ikarus2k>(i was talking about the high speed trains they bought, from about every major manufacturer, 60pieces each)
17:47<@Rubidium>why would they want high speed trains when they have working maglev?
17:47<Zuu>Oh, Bombadier put VHS to a new meaning - Very High Speed :-)
17:48<ikarus2k>Rubidium: cuz thats too expensive, eve for them
17:48<ikarus2k>they've been struggling to build an extension line
17:48<@Rubidium>tss... it can't be that expensive
17:49<ikarus2k>maybe they just couldnt reverse engineer it ;)
