07:42<V453000>andythenorth: http://www.rouming.cz/upload/wut_14.jpg WTF
07:43<andythenorth>oops
07:43<andythenorth>that can be very bad news
07:43<andythenorth>tyre explosions kill people fairly frequently
07:47<V453000>hm :)

07:52<Jinassi>backstory: tyre was rethreaded poorly and steel wire wall collapsed/burst open. They ended up shooting it with a small caliber rifle to deflate it and change it
07:53<Jinassi>its cheaper to rethread these types of tyres in certain countries, then to buy a new one
07:54<V453000>Jinassi knowledge :)
07:54<juzza1>I like that solution - if it's broken, shoot it
07:54<Jinassi>Picture is not from CZ, it's from Africa
07:54<__ln__>there's a difference?
07:54<Jinassi>new tyre is probably cheaper in Europe, than to rethread it
07:55<V453000>LOL
07:55<Jinassi>would you go thee and deflate it by hand up close?
07:55<Jinassi>that thing could kill you if it would pop
07:56<andythenorth>long sharp stick
07:57<andythenorth>definitely not a bad idea in any way
07:57<Jinassi>where would the stick go once there is a sudden increase in pressure on the pointy side?
07:57<Jinassi>right back at you
07:57<andythenorth>nah, pressure flows around the pointy bit
07:57<andythenorth>and you could have a big non-pointy bit on your end
07:58<andythenorth>or place nails on the floor, then drive over them
07:58<andythenorth>or one of those devices the police use to shred car tyres (stinger?)
07:58<Jinassi>that would work
07:58<andythenorth>I think so
07:58<Jinassi>there are plates made especially for that
07:58<Jinassi>with hollow points
07:58<andythenorth>stuff going wrong http://www.miningmayhem.com
07:58<andythenorth>apart from the occasional actual sad death, that site is quite instructive
07:59<Jinassi>look at all those trucks wanting belly rubs lol

08:54<Jinassi>GG, this is a good example of an overengineered game. can't even grow a town in vanilla past 30k, but have no issues in citybuilder, throwing everything at it and going past 300k with ease.

09:00<Xaroth|Work>Jinassi: you're always welcome to supply patches to improve it
09:01<andythenorth>overengineered? o_O
09:01<Jinassi>Not that, i am unsuccesful in vanilla. there must be something i am doing wrong
09:02<andythenorth>dunno, so many variables in your sandbox
09:02<andythenorth>town behaviour, map, newgrfs
09:02<Jinassi>not that, s1 is default vanilla behaviour
09:02<andythenorth>citybuilder probably adjusts town growth rate
09:02-!-Plaete2 [~moffi@dsdf-4db5fcfc.pool.mediaWays.net] has joined #openttd
09:03<Jinassi>true, which makes it blatantly easy to throw more and more to it to make it grow, yet in vanilla it matters how much can you take from it.
09:03<Jinassi>if i'm not mistaken
09:04<andythenorth>afaik, the town growth (in non-desert, non-arctic towns) depends on (1) collecting from 5 stations within defined period (2) the base growth rate of the town (‘grow faster’ or not)
09:04<andythenorth>dunno
09:04<andythenorth>guessing
09:06<Jinassi>1st: http://i.imgur.com/wcQ9ZRg.jpg
09:06<Jinassi>2nd: http://i.imgur.com/Uv8LcLh.jpg
09:06<Jinassi>the % transported one was probably right
09:07<andythenorth>did you fund buildings?
09:07<andythenorth>also you have a lot of space occupied by stations :)
09:07<Jinassi>that could be it, hampers expansion

09:10<andythenorth>Jinassi: in my last game, without trying I got a 19k town with only one pax station in the town
09:10<Jinassi>bravo
09:10<andythenorth>and only 5 trains servicing it
09:10<Jinassi>so placement is most important
09:10<andythenorth>also some industry pickups nearby
09:10<andythenorth>I was using TaI newgrf, dunno what Pikka has done to town growth in that grf
09:11<andythenorth>but the town grows every 2 days
09:11<andythenorth>I transported 159 of 3775 pax in last month
09:11<andythenorth>:P
09:11<Jinassi>damn lol
09:11<andythenorth>and 44 of 634 mail
09:11<Eddi|zuHause>Jinassi: the original road layout is the worst for growing towns
09:12<Eddi|zuHause>Jinassi: a lot of places that could be used for houses ends up being occupied with pointless roads

09:14<Jinassi>1st one was sustained by me, funded it like crazy, 2nd picture, only roads were placed for a few radiuses and then let alone to expand
09:15<Jinassi>both came to 30k population, altough i did not use so much space for stations in 2nd pic
09:15<Jinassi>yeah, original layout does doom it
09:16<Jinassi>am a stubborn man, lol, will burn a few more hours after restart to try gain
09:17<andythenorth>a proportion of towns (cities?) are randomly assigned to grow faster at game start AFAIK
09:17<V453000>Eddi|zuHause: player-side, original is the best actually, if you build your own roads :P
09:21<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: you can't make a 3x3 or 4x4 grid with original
09:22<V453000>you can if you delete the existing roads and build new?
09:22<V453000>but you still get the bonus for the setting, and you have 3x3 anyway
09:22<V453000>I personally hate any of the grids so I would build it more organic anyway, but still
09:22<Eddi|zuHause>V453000: it will build roads into your 3x3 grid making it a 1x1 grid
09:23<V453000>assume town is not allowed to build roads
09:23<V453000>if you want to care about it, that setting should be obvious
09:23<Eddi|zuHause>hm, that may work
09:24<V453000>im not sure what bonus does it get
09:24<V453000>does it just renew buildings more often?

09:24<Eddi|zuHause>well, i generally use "better", and only touch the roads if it bothers me, like two roads not connecting because they are 1 tile offset
09:25<V453000>http://wiki.openttdcoop.org/User:Mfb/Towns ... there we looked into openttd code ... calculate how many times the town tries to build a house
09:25<V453000>:0
09:25<V453000>so the bonus is quite substantial
09:27<V453000>this is cute http://bind2.com/bind.php?u=8BjADO0YDx9TEBPexu4KFVD7wZePGAnQLYkNDxsNHsqUSMjPjQUAKKVbatp6zEHW9sM%3D&b=29

10:30<V453000>it can be made to look nice when it isnt so uniform :)
10:34<Xaroth|Work>Jinassi: some of your bus stops are empty, I would suggest adding more bus stops and making sure there's almost always something waiting there

10:57<Eddi|zuHause>who would have ever expected that someone named V435000 would play with NUTS and YETI
10:57<Xaroth|Work>andythenorth: if you always have vehicles loading/unloading it stimulates town growth
10:57<Xaroth|Work>or at least it used to
10:57<Xaroth|Work>you could have 4 bus stations in a small circle (station-walk a bit if needed) and turbo-feed a town from 100 to a few thousand in just a few years
10:59<Eddi|zuHause>you don't have to transport all passengers to get the town growth bonus
10:59<andythenorth>you just have to collect
10:59<andythenorth>once a month or similar

14:41<andythenorth>so will a higher clock speed CPU drain my battery faster? o_O
14:41*andythenorth would assume so
14:41<andythenorth>using…physics
14:42<andythenorth>but maybe it gets the work done faster, so can nap relatively more of the time :P
14:42<Wolf01>I read: "so will a higher train speed drains my clock's battery faster?" and I was wtf?!
14:43-!-oskari89 [oskari89@83-102-63-32.bb.dnainternet.fi] has joined #openttd
14:44<@Rubidium>not necessarily, but it depends on lots and lots of things
14:45<@Rubidium>though generally speaking: higher clock speed -> more changes -> higher heat production ( = more energy used)
14:45<@Rubidium>in the end it heavily depends on the case itself
14:46-!-luaduck_zzz is now known as luaduck
14:48<@Rubidium>if it's IO/memory heavy, then a higher clock speed will probably not help because it will just waste energy waiting on data
14:48<Wolf01>also you need to raise the processor's Vss because of the shape of the signal, higher clock means that the signal could not reach the "1" state before going to "0" again, so you get a sequence of "0" "maybe 1" "0" and so on

14:51<@Rubidium>yet another game from the era the games were still good ;)
14:53<Supercheese>So, then games were good, now they're great?
14:53<Supercheese>:)
14:53<@Rubidium>to be serious... I'm kinda stuck in that era
14:54<Wolf01>you are not alone
14:54<frosch123>but i don't consider s2k good ...
14:54<Quatroking>it has a neat spacecraft on the cover tho
14:54<andythenorth>hmm
14:55<Wolf01>I don't consider even TTD good, but they are more enjoyable than most of today games
14:55<@Rubidium>SimFarm, SimTower, SimCity (1/2000), Caesar II, Transport Tycoon
14:55<@Rubidium>for some reason the stuff a decade after that became significantly worse
14:55<andythenorth>so currently I have 2.8Ghz i7 dual-core, from Dec 2013, get ~9 hours battery life on typical use
14:56<andythenorth>considering buying 3.0Ghz i7 dual-core, late 2014
14:56<@Rubidium>got the exact types?
14:56<andythenorth>could look them up
14:56<+glx>more recent can be more efficient even with faster clock

14:59<Quatroking>oh and because I'm cool like that, also a free copy of afterfall insanity https://www.indiegala.com/store
14:59<andythenorth>22 nm "Haswell" 2.8 GHz Intel "Core i7" processor (4558U) vs.
14:59<andythenorth>22 nm "Haswell" 3.0 GHz Intel "Core i7" processor (4578U)
14:59<andythenorth>look like similar part numbers
14:59<+glx>and the TDP ?
14:59<Wolf01>https://www.flickr.com/photos/97265543@N02/14370130541/ <- nice train
15:00<andythenorth>hmm
15:00<andythenorth>how do I find TDP? :P
15:00<@Rubidium>both 28W
15:00<@Rubidium>interestingly the 4578 has half the L2 of 4558
15:01<@Rubidium>and apparantly twice the maximum memory bandwidth ?!?
15:01<andythenorth>apple have it specced as 4MB in both cases
15:01<andythenorth>dunno
15:02<andythenorth>oh no, that’s L3
15:02<andythenorth>nvm
15:02<@Rubidium>might be that the comparison website I found was wrong
15:03<andythenorth>differences are pretty marginal http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-4558U-vs-Intel-4578U
15:04<@Rubidium>andythenorth: http://ark.intel.com/compare/75992,83506
15:04<andythenorth>so probably a non-interesting difference in battery life
15:05<@Rubidium>yup
15:05<+glx>they are almost the same
15:06<andythenorth>the difference on geekbench between the two macs is also marginal
15:06<andythenorth>I hate it when computing maxes out :P
15:06<andythenorth>apple hit this every few years
15:06<andythenorth>can’t make it go faster and/or have longer battery life
15:06<@Rubidium>looks like it took Intel a year to squeeze a few tenths of GHz extra CPU speed by improving their production processes
15:07<@Rubidium>but then... who's competing with Intel on x86?
15:08<andythenorth>the laptop I bought last year kicked battery life from 3 hours to 9 hours, and lost what feels like 0.5KG of weight
15:08<andythenorth>this year santa cannot deliver the same effect ;P
15:08<andythenorth>BAD SANTA
15:09<andythenorth>hmm

15:09<@Rubidium>Santa Claus, North Pole, H0H 0H0, Canada
15:09<andythenorth>hohoho.gs
15:10<@Rubidium>andythenorth: but Apple seems to be in the business of getting things larger again
15:10<andythenorth>they do?
15:11<andythenorth>mostly they seem to want to make ridiculous “… Air"
15:11<andythenorth>which are about as powerful as a desk calculator
15:11<@Rubidium>iphone air plus?
15:11<andythenorth>maybe ipad plus will replace my laptop
15:11<andythenorth>yeah right
15:12<andythenorth>ipad is shockingly bad
15:13<@Rubidium>le sigh...
15:13<andythenorth>is that French?
15:13<@Rubidium>iMac with 5K display... for only half of 5K$
15:13<andythenorth>:P
15:14<andythenorth>le iMac
15:15<@Rubidium>Apple became cheap
15:15<@Rubidium>can't find anything for 25k$ anymore
15:16<@Rubidium>even the most beefed up Mac Pro is just over 22k$
15:20<andythenorth>but what would I do with it :P
15:21<andythenorth>compile FIRS faster?
15:21<andythenorth>I considered buying one to run as a remote compiler :P
15:21<andythenorth>we edit multi-stream HD video on iMacs at work
15:21<andythenorth>no Mac Pro needed
15:24<@peter1138>Apple have to be different.. everyone else is pushing 4K, they come along with 5K...

17:21<andythenorth>nor | canals or rivers
17:21<Eddi|zuHause>why worry about nonexistent problems?
17:21<Eddi|zuHause>there are | half-shores
17:22*andythenorth is not worrying
17:22<andythenorth>more basking in a problem side-stepped
17:22<argoneus>good night train friends
17:23<andythenorth>I like trains?
17:25<Eddi|zuHause>why did you have to do that?!?
17:26<andythenorth>what did I do now? o_O
17:26<NGC3982>Like trains.
17:27<andythenorth>also eh
17:27<andythenorth>I just did the last thing I know I need to do for Squid 1.0.0
17:28<Eddi|zuHause>then ship it!
17:28<andythenorth>so you’d all better try and break it, before I get it burnt to golden master and distribute the CDs
17:28<Eddi|zuHause>(pun intended)
17:28<andythenorth>oh wait
17:29<andythenorth>I could fix a few more things
17:29<andythenorth>but eh

20:08<+glx>have you tried to switch it off then on ?
20:10<Eddi|zuHause>of course
20:10<+glx>and the batteries are ok too I guess
20:11<Eddi|zuHause>i also tried replacing them. but it would be odd if brand new batteries were empty
20:11<+glx>maybe it's juste a matter of resyncing them
20:12<Eddi|zuHause>there are no sync buttons
20:12<+glx>anyway I hate wireless ;)
20:12<Eddi|zuHause>this also never happened with the previous two incarnations of the same type
20:13<+glx>well if it's new there's guarantee
