09:56<Ethereal_Whisper>I had a question about MSH's
09:56<Ethereal_Whisper>So let's say that as usual the MSH is a 3-way T junction. You have traffic coming east and west and both turning to the north, towards the station
09:57<Ethereal_Whisper>Is there any reason to prioritize traffic coming in from one direction when the two directions form the MSL?
09:58<Ethereal_Whisper>So let's say that as usual the MSH is a 3-way T junction. You have traffic coming east and west and both turning to the north, towards the station
09:58<Ethereal_Whisper>Oops
09:58<Ethereal_Whisper>Here's my example http://i.imgur.com/Wqg4sDO.png
09:59<Ethereal_Whisper>MSL entering station is eastbound, I have traffic coming in from the north and the south (well I will eventually, I'm in the planning stage of the network and designing this MSH

10:06<Wolf01>Read it as "overcomplicate junctions with priorities and too many trains"
10:06<Wolf01>I don't get 50 trains in an entire game
10:06<Wolf01>And still make huge profits
10:09<Ethereal_Whisper>I think my record for number of trains in one game was about 1,200 on a 512x512 map
10:10<Ethereal_Whisper>That was the first game I played where I learned how to build quad track mainlines
10:11<Wolf01>I do that too, but only from the station up to the first junction when I have about half of trains on each line

12:32<Ethereal_Whisper>I love it when I accidentally place a backwards signal and my trains head down a random sideline
12:33<Eddi|zuHause>is that better or worse than forgetting a random piece of electrification?
12:34<Ethereal_Whisper>Tiny bit better I'd think... at least in my case, my trains will make it to their destination... eventually.
12:34<Ethereal_Whisper>;Although depending on circumstance, yours might too, they just might take a convoluted route
12:34<Wolf01>And you never played with pipelines, you can't even see what kind of signal you placed
12:39<supermop>easier to just not use signals with pipe
12:39<supermop>and have relay points
12:39<Eddi|zuHause>i still think these "pipes" made all the wrong choices...
12:40<Wolf01>Yes, they need to be done with RoadTypes
12:40<supermop>at least as just a standalone newgrf theey don't impinge on a future pipe working better
12:40<supermop>Wolf01: pipes should be one way only
12:41<Eddi|zuHause>there are certainly two-way pipes
12:41<supermop>and not based on a current waytype
12:41<supermop>Eddi|zuHause: not at the same time unless its two pipes
12:43<supermop>one advantage of a pipe from oil well to terminal is you don't need an empty return pipe, the way you'd need to send empty tanker cars
12:43<supermop>and if two points do need to send liquids in both directions, you should build two pipes
12:44<Wolf01>Agreed, but there's no teleport in OTTD yet
12:45<supermop>pipes, conveyors, bucketlines, logflumes, etc where cargo is carried continuously by the infrastructure should work in that way
12:51<supermop>basically there is no existing mechanic in the game that would approximate it
12:54<supermop>other than some kind of 'pump' in the form of a magic depot that constantly spawns units of carrying capacity at a certain rate, which behave like road vehicles with no orders, picking up cargo where it is waiting, dropping it where accepted, and blindly following the available path forward
12:56<Wolf01>Buy vehicle, cost 1$ -> move $1 per day -> Sell, do this automagically between 2 depots and is done
12:56<Wolf01>Using RoadTypes so cargo could pile up in the line

15:07*andythenorth 16GB
15:07*andythenorth reading mac forums, which are weird
15:08<andythenorth>apparently lack of 32GB Macbook Pro means Apple is dead and the stock will now tank
15:08<andythenorth>weird people who buy a computer in closed ecosystem, from a vendor who is known to be ruthless
15:08<andythenorth>and then they whine about it
15:11<frosch123>computers are dead :)
15:11<andythenorth>have been forever
15:11<frosch123>anyway, the "easy stats" are indeed the same when comparing 2010 and 2016
15:12<Wolf01>Computers are dead until you need a new one
15:12<frosch123>same number of cores, same amount of memory
15:12<@Alberth>you're not supposed to do more complex things nowadays
15:12<frosch123>ssd are bigger, and multi-display is more common, but that's about it
15:16*andythenorth wonders how people are still managing to need more than 16GB frequently
15:16<andythenorth>on a laptop
15:17<Wolf01>http://imgur.com/gallery/7rP7q5r nice accident
15:17<andythenorth>could have been brutal :o
15:18<Wolf01>Proven that Balrog's whip can't cut steel beams
15:18<Wolf01>Can't cut Gandalf's leg too
15:18<andythenorth>the number of times I have found that my computer is slow because it’s in swap….
15:19<Wolf01>How the fuck do you even manage to swap with 16GB?
15:19<andythenorth>yeah never
15:19<andythenorth>maybe running multiple Windows VMs
15:19<andythenorth>but not noticeably
15:19<frosch123>i have that issue on an 8gb machine regulary :)
15:19<andythenorth>plus…err SSD with SATA 3 or something
15:20<Wolf01>I did... memory leak on my game 2 days ago, tried to allocate 40GB in 6 seconds
15:20<andythenorth>numpty on forum complains “I have to restart my mac every 2-3 days because it’s out of memory”
15:20<andythenorth>err, no, restart Firefox :P
15:20<frosch123>though i never quite figured out the point of swapping
15:20<frosch123>once the swapping starts the machine is useless
15:20<andythenorth>as usual, reading the wrong forum causes andythenorth rant
15:21<Wolf01>:D
15:21<frosch123>andythenorth: that is definitely a reason to buy more memory
15:22<frosch123>so it only runs out after 10 days
15:23<andythenorth>yup
15:23<frosch123>btw. what are apple updates like?
15:23<andythenorth>OS ones? Or hardware?
15:23<frosch123>are they like windows with at least one 1 reboot, sometimes 2, or even 3?
15:24<andythenorth>they are very variable
15:24<frosch123>or are they like linux, reboot only if kernel updates
15:24<andythenorth>usually only reboot for kernel or similar
15:24<andythenorth>but they can be sketchy
15:24<andythenorth>I installed one on Tuesday that bricked my mac
15:24<andythenorth>and that is not rare enough
15:25<andythenorth>7 hours faffing with backups
15:25<andythenorth>waste of time
15:25<frosch123>i thought that only happens with smartphones :)
15:25<andythenorth>if only
15:26*andythenorth wonders what the mac fans expected in a new laptop
15:26<andythenorth>they all seem very sad
15:26<Wolf01>Longer power cord?
15:26<andythenorth>power cord with emojis?
15:28*andythenorth would have settled for (a) same or longer battery life, not shorter (b) no 20% price hike
15:28<Wolf01>To not pay for standard features as accessories?
15:29<Wolf01>Oh, my bad, that's Apple motto: less is more
15:29<frosch123>do laptop batteries also burn regulary? or is that only a smartphone thing?
15:30<frosch123>also, are tablets finally dead? or did someone find some use?
15:31<@Alberth>maybe it's a function where the chance increases as the laptop approaches smartphone size?
15:31<frosch123>also do laptops still have cd drives?
15:32<andythenorth>tablets are for entertaining children
15:32<andythenorth>and for grandparents
15:32<frosch123>interesting point
15:32<Wolf01>Children and people which don't need a pc to do the same things
15:32<frosch123>can we have some outdoor tablet then?
15:32<frosch123>sandbox safe?
15:33<andythenorth>must be one
15:33<frosch123>Wolf01: i thought that's what a ps4 is for
15:33<andythenorth>ipad is surprisingly robust
15:33<andythenorth>in a good case
15:33<andythenorth>we have one that’s been outside, on planes, by the pool, in bed, thrown down the stairs, dropped etc
15:34<andythenorth>slept on, trodden on, fought over
15:34<andythenorth>ho
15:35<@Alberth>ipad test center :)
15:35<andythenorth>apparently if Jobs was still alive, the new Macbook would *definitely* have been two sheets of glass, both displays, but with a full keyboard with real clicky keys, every kind of port, 64GB, a desktop class GPU, 10 hour battery life and a 5K display
15:35<andythenorth>for the same price as the previous model
15:36<andythenorth>all “I’ve been using macs for 30 years and now I’m seriously considering switching” people
15:36<frosch123>"every kind of port" is interesting, given that all of Jobs has always been "minimalism"
15:37<andythenorth>http://www.lugnet.com/general/~1285/traumaticevents

15:53<andythenorth>I don’t think it will fit in my bag
15:53<andythenorth>how much battery life?
15:53<Wolf01>I don't think is battery powered
15:55*andythenorth wonders why the mac people are comparing the price of it to macbooks
15:55<frosch123>is it cloud powered? and does it transfer the rights of what you draw to ms?
15:55<Wolf01>Win 10 does that already, no need for new hardware
15:55<andythenorth>how long is the battery life on a cloud?
15:57<frosch123>andythenorth: maybe they are comparing the keyboard of the two
15:58<frosch123>i mean that surface thing does not look like it has an ESC key
15:59<frosch123>though, given that we are back to one input device again, maybe we will regain a scroll lock :p
15:59<Wolf01>Bluetooth keyboard, also you don't even need a keyboard with windows
15:59<andythenorth>frosch123: innovation :)
15:59<frosch123>Wolf01: windows is responsible for at least 3 completely useless keys
16:00<Wolf01>Scroll lock, context menu and?
16:00<frosch123>that is 3 out of the top 5 completely useless keys
16:00<frosch123>2xwin, context, scroll lock, pause
16:00*andythenorth wonders what these idiots actually want :)
16:01<andythenorth>they don’t like tablets
16:01<andythenorth>nvm
16:01<frosch123>"print screen" has a usecase as hotkey for launching a single program
16:01<Wolf01>I even found a way to use scroll lock on MS softwares
16:01<frosch123>(though it is kind of specific)
16:01<Wolf01>I don't remember what
16:01<Wolf01>Win+Pause takes screenshots now
16:02<frosch123>oh, i forgot caps lock in the list
16:03<frosch123>though maybe that one is more annoying than useless :p
16:03<andythenorth>mine still has a little green light in it :)
16:03<andythenorth>must be an actual LED under there
