06:43<Wolf01>\o/ i loaded the bitmap successfully
06:44<@Alberth>so now you have a very big shiny bitmap ? :)
06:44<Wolf01>and now i can use the GDI+ drawing functions
06:45<@Alberth>Hmm, GDI, wasn't a bad guy in C&C ? :)
06:46<Wolf01>it depends how do you look at it ;)
06:46<Wolf01>i'm a bit ashamed of(by?) the print class, i use a double nested for... i think there's a better way
06:47<Wolf01>but now, lunch time
06:49<Eddi|zuHause>Alberth: GDI was more like a stand-in for NATO
06:49<@Alberth>well, it's fast to program, if it also works fast enough, you're done :)
06:49<Eddi|zuHause>i.e. the guys that invade countries to overthrow "terrorists"
06:49<@Alberth>Eddi|zuHause: ah, a good guy, apparently :)
06:50<@Alberth>which in the end doesn't matter at all :p
06:50<Eddi|zuHause>i think "good" is a bit overstretching the word :p
06:59<Wolf01>also, it's possible to get some info from ottd to print on the display? something like a list of vehicles by income or age
07:02<Eddi|zuHause>Wolf01: through the admin port, potentially in compination with a game script
07:04<Wolf01>if i had the G19 it would have been cool to have the minimap on the display
07:04<Wolf01>but that must be way too much
07:05<Eddi|zuHause>that you can only do by patching openttd, probably.
07:05<Wolf01>yes just put the display framework function in the game
07:06<Wolf01>like many other games do
07:12-!-Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
07:32<Eddi|zuHause>is there a maljour?
07:33<Wolf01>yes, very often
07:34<@Rubidium>I reckon something classified as "Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" might be classified as maljour ;)
07:37-!-frosch123 [] has joined #openttd
07:47<frosch123>when eddi does not reply to a forum thread, i am sometimes lost wrt. what the thread is about
07:47<Eddi|zuHause>haha :p
07:47<Eddi|zuHause>my heuristic is also not 100% accurate
07:48<frosch123> <- i count 2 troll responses, 1 non-troll douchebag, but i do not know what category the topic starter belongs to
07:49<Wolf01>"No 45 degree turns" captain?
07:49<Eddi|zuHause>he probably meant double-45°
07:50<frosch123>yeah, so no turns at all :) but signals otoh
07:50<Eddi|zuHause>yes, the signal thing made no sense at all
07:50<Wolf01>it would be hard to find a lot of industries to connect in straight line
07:52<Eddi|zuHause>you could make transfers ;)
07:54<Eddi|zuHause>so, when do we implement an achievement system? :p
07:55-!-FLHerne [] has quit [Read error: No route to host]
07:55-!-FLHerne [] has joined #openttd
07:56<Wolf01>like "you built your first train depot"?
07:56<@Alberth>we have such a script, don't we?
07:57<Eddi|zuHause>Alberth: but no global gamified social media stuff
07:57<@Alberth>oh, right
07:57<@Alberth>I guess it's part of the steam upgrade package?
08:00<Wolf01>mmmh, i want to build the lego mercedes arocs
08:10<Pikka>what's stopping you?
08:11<Wolf01>lack of space
08:13<Eddi|zuHause>you gotta prioritize, man :p
08:19<Wolf01>yes i choose to build them in this order: mercedes arocs, crawler crane, cargo airplane
08:22<@Alberth>s/cargo/mercedes arocs/ ? saves space :)
08:23<Eddi|zuHause>i meant: get a bigger space, or throw something else out :p
08:46-!-sla_ro|master [slamaster@] has quit []
09:21<Wolf01>in the new dr. who set it seem the tardis is working, maybe they could adapt the same technology to all the other sets, so you can open them and play, while they take just a bit of space when closed
09:22<Wolf01>but right now, i think i'll invade the kitchen

15:54<FLHerne>drac_boy: Evening
15:54<drac_boy>how doing?
15:54<FLHerne>Long time no see
15:57<drac_boy>doing ok here..just slow day tho :-s
15:59<FLHerne>For me too, been a fairly busy week overall though
15:59<FLHerne>Laptop's been in bits all over my table a lot
16:01<drac_boy>heh I've somewhat given up on x86 computers...but who knows if I'll look into it a bit again tho :->
16:02<FLHerne>Oldish Thinkpad, not bad for fiddling about with
16:02<FLHerne>Has nicely-labeled screws and everything
16:05<drac_boy>well yeah thats true...sadly I've tried asking for one for some time but noone around here seem to have a thinkpad R or T for sale at all
16:06<FLHerne>drac_boy: Canada sort of way?
16:06<FLHerne>Or is my memory totally off
16:07<FLHerne>In the UK, there seem to be loads on Gumtree/eBay
16:07<drac_boy>canada aye :)
16:08<drac_boy>vermont isn't too far tho
16:09-!-roidal_ [] has joined #openttd
16:09-!-roidal [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
16:09<drac_boy>btw which thinkpad do you have?
16:09<FLHerne>X201 now
16:10<FLHerne>Although over half of it was previously my X200
16:10<FLHerne>Only parts that were X201 originally are the lower case, mobo and fingerprint reader
16:11<FLHerne>Perfect laptop for dragging about all day, screen isn't all that good though
16:12<drac_boy>hmm not sure I like that one but to our own :)
16:12<FLHerne>Too not-IBM?
16:13<FLHerne>It's one of the last before Lenovo started making daft changes
16:14<Raiz>what is OpenTTD?
16:14<drac_boy>flherne heh nope..just a bit too lacking on specs (and no not the cpu)
16:14<FLHerne>Raiz: It's a transport strategy game
16:15<drac_boy>but like I was saying - to our own anyhow
16:15<FLHerne>drac_boy: GPU is pretty awful, yeah
16:15<drac_boy>and networking is just about ok but data ports not so great
16:16<FLHerne>Interfaces not bad - with the expresscard slot, I've got 5 USB ports, wwan/gps, wifi, bluetooth, vga, ethernet and a modem port I never found a use for
16:16<FLHerne>USB3 would have been nice
16:16<Raiz>I just added it here:
16:17<FLHerne>Raiz: I fail to see the major advantage over /list
16:17<FLHerne>I guess summarising the topics a bit helps
16:17<Raiz>FLHerne, list will list all the crappy chans
16:17<Raiz>this one is organized and... it's just better
16:18<FLHerne>I fail to see the major advantage over /list with a minimum user count :P
16:18<FLHerne>#/r/openttd is ingame (and out-of-game) chat for r/openttd OpenTTD servers
16:18<FLHerne>Not sure if it fits your list, but it's fairly active
16:19<drac_boy>flherne well I prefer eg R51 which has everything needed (aside to uppering the factory hd) for example
16:23<FLHerne>drac_boy: List says you get a parallel port and optional firewire?
16:23<FLHerne>I suppose either of those could be useful to someone with old, strange or ex-Apple hardware
16:24<drac_boy>you forgot the more common fourth choice
16:25<FLHerne>All of the above?
16:25<drac_boy>nope: being able to move lot of data constantly (and sometimes without a master host either)
16:27<drac_boy>but either way..yeah parallel port is pretty useless unless you're someone who want to flash some LED lights from your computer for cheap :)
16:27<Wolf01>i miss a midi/game port
16:29-!-Raiz [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
16:29<drac_boy>wolf01 well..use something cheap like Firewire Solo to get your piano plugged in plus a lot more? just a random thought so you know :p
16:31<Wolf01>eh, my keyboard is plain old midi, i still have an old pentium2 with windows 98 for that purpose :P
16:33<Wolf01>i must also say that i don't play with it since that time :P
16:36*drac_boy whacks some sour keys to drive wolf01 crazy with
16:36-!-roidal_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
16:40<drac_boy>wolf01 btw you got any..umm...scsi cdrom's?
16:40<Wolf01>maybe one old hdd
16:41-!-Kurimus [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
16:41-!-Kurimus [] has joined #openttd
16:41<drac_boy>heh well scsi cdroms often were used for pianos and sometimes other 'smarter' music equipments too
16:42<drac_boy>doesn't help some of them also have digital coaxial output too (especially nec) so you could play digital cds next to the computer
16:43<Wolf01>i have 2 atari ST used for music and just one 720kb floppy disk :P

16:50-!-sla_ro|master [] has joined #openttd
16:51<drac_boy>wolf01 to our own on this but I've always liked either desktop or cpu-under-keyboard forms ... I don't understand the stupid obsession with spacewasting towers that have globs of dust
16:51<Eddi|zuHause><Wolf01> i miss a midi/game port <-- i would imagine there are midi-usb adapters
16:56<Wolf01>yes there are :)
16:58<__ln__>i've even seen one
17:16<drac_boy>a little bit quiet again
17:27<drac_boy>anyway going off for evening now
