04:12*yorick would like to be able to change reliability and availability with newgrf callback 36
04:12<yorick>also cargo capacity for planes would be nice
04:19<@petern>reliability is never specified
04:30<yorick>it would make sense to have both reliability and availability :)
04:31<@petern>reliability is calculated
04:32<yorick>but based on model life
04:33<@petern>affected by
04:34<yorick>but I want my vehicle to have a constant reliability of 96%
04:34<yorick>and be available for only 2 years
04:34<@petern>well you can't
04:35<yorick>that's why I want the reliability and availability using callback 36 ;)
04:35<@petern>there's no equivalent property
04:36<yorick>then I want it in another callback :P
04:36<@petern>then implement it
04:37<dihedral>iwant iwant iwant

08:23*dihedral wonders if this is another person to quickly disappear if no one should reply ^^
08:24*SirSquid1ess wonders if jpm is a really a government spy, sent to investigate possible terrorist activities that took place on an oTTD server, against a fellow player
08:26*TrueBrain things he is going to kick a few people, just for the fun of it
08:27<FauxFaux>Koing to kick a few people?
08:27<dihedral>better than gicg
08:28<TrueBrain>lucky seds work only on the first char it finds which matches
08:28<TrueBrain>(no global sed ;))
08:28<TrueBrain>hmm .. I made a TINY mistake when doing a creditcard billing ... I gave the wrong address :p
08:28<TrueBrain>didn't know they checked addresses ...
08:29-!-Chruker [] has joined #openttd
08:30<dihedral>looks like jpm just wanted to idle
08:31<TrueBrain>let him
08:31<TrueBrain>at least he says something
08:31<TrueBrain>more then you can say about Chruker
08:31<TrueBrain>he only scares away people
08:33-!-lobster [~michielbi@] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
08:33<Chruker>Me and Howdy have a == relationship :-)
08:33-!-Progman [] has joined #openttd
08:33<dihedral>yes, at least jpm made since in what he said :-D
08:34<TrueBrain>Chruker: sounds horrible
08:36<@Belugas>not my sound, not mine
08:36-!-maristo [] has joined #openttd
08:37<TrueBrain>your sound is not horrible, very true Belugas
08:37<TrueBrain>in the last week we got approached by a few other open source projects to use WT3 .. lol :)
08:38<@Belugas>ask them 1000$ for it
08:38<TrueBrain>I am not going to ask money to other open source projects Belugas
08:38<TrueBrain>although it would mean we don't have to do any additional fundraisers :p
08:38<@Belugas>yup yup yup
08:39<yorick>if I win a million some day, I might give some of it to openttd
08:40<TrueBrain>yorick: we don't want your dollar
08:40<TrueBrain>yorick: we don't want your 1 dollar
08:40-!-[alt]buster [] has joined #openttd
08:40-!-[alt]buster is now known as [com2]buster
08:40<yorick>no, it might be more than 50 dollars ;)
08:40<planetmaker>if I wer god I'd donate everything they want to the devs in order to improve the game
08:40-!-[com]buster [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
08:40<planetmaker>is it realistical?
08:41<planetmaker>is the promise worth anything?
08:41<yorick>you mean the fact that you would only exist in crazy people's minds?
08:41<TrueBrain>if I turn out to be briliant, I might contribute to OpenTTD
08:41<TrueBrain>oh wait ...
08:41<yorick>and it's not like I would ever win something :)
08:42-!-maristo [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:42<planetmaker>I mean merely the fact that irrealistic promises have no chance to become reality and as such are just mute...
08:42<TrueBrain>I agree with planetmaker
08:43<yorick>I'm not promising anything there :-|
08:44<@Belugas>nothing is worth considering up until it's signed in blood
08:45<TrueBrain>damn .. I do hope my order goes to the right address now .. stupid creditcards :(
08:49<@Belugas>don't blame the little plastic stuff... blame either the user or the processor!
08:50<@petern>today i am mr piggy
08:50<Chruker>its an error #50
08:50<@petern>you know
08:51<@petern>some people say that if they won the lottery they'd stay in their job
08:51<@petern>well fuck tha
08:51*dihedral pats petern on the back ^^
08:51<Noldo>lottery winnings are not That much money
08:51<@petern>obviously i mean the big prize...
08:52<Noldo>it's not that hard to spend money
08:52*Belugas disagrees. 14millions$ cdn is a lot.
08:52<@Belugas>but... i'll buy all me dreams and i'll end up working again.. :S
08:53<@petern>i could make it last a while :)
08:53<Noldo>you don't have to work ever again, but then you can't spend that 14 mil
08:54<@petern>i wouldn't be able to spend all that in one go
08:55<Chruker>sure you could, just find some big house to buy
08:55<@petern>i'd blow a big portion on a nice house
08:55<@petern>nice that would still leave loads left over
08:56<Chruker>you cant find a house that costs 14m ?
08:56<@petern>i can find plenty that cost less
08:57<@petern>i wouldn't suddenly become an idiot who spends all the money they have for no reason
08:58<@Belugas>i'd construct a recording studio
08:59<@Belugas>a new house, by a cool lake, at least 2-3 floors, with a big studio on it, state of the art everything
09:00<@petern>hmm, a nice steinway grand
09:00<@Belugas>among others ;)
09:01<@Belugas>ho... and a bank account which interests will pay for plane tickets for those who wish to visit and PLAY
09:02<@petern>fucking dreams :s
09:02*SirSquid1ess thinks Belugas should shout plane tickets for lots of people t come and have on gigantic oTTD LAN for us to earn our trillions of dollars of virtual currency
09:02<@petern>what's the point in that?

09:07<@Belugas>SirSquid1ess, to me, doing music is quite more rewardable than gaming.
09:08<@Belugas>like... at least, i can listen to it back and enjoy it everytime i want ;)
09:08<SirSquid1ess>I completely agree with that
09:08*dihedral has not played since - cannot remember when

09:27<@Belugas>and that is all used up VERY fast
09:29<@petern>i only have 2 channels of real inputs
09:30<@Belugas>true. but you have infinite virtual tracks to record on
09:30<@Belugas>i only have 2 inputs too
09:30<@petern>you've got reaper ;)
09:30<@Belugas>well... yeah... but... i'm doing all my stuff n the zoom
09:30<@Belugas>which looks like a self-limitation, now that i read it back lS
09:34<@Belugas>funny, a while ago, the forums been down would be a catastroph

09:57<N35>My god, i need help with building railways, isnt there a server somewhere where i can connect and be taught how to do it? Been spending since yesterday, doing a map, and everytime i get too many trains on a single factory-station, all the trains just get stuck -.-

10:34<Xaroth>that one i can imagine
10:34<@Belugas>and... try to use double tracks instead of just one
10:34<Xaroth>one track for one way, one track for the other
10:38<@Belugas>and a back bone connecting multiple stations, NOT just one route to one, and one route to another
10:44<@Belugas>you know what, it sounds fun fun fun.. i should try it one day!
10:44<Eddi|zuHause>hm... the forum is somewhat... unresponsive...
10:45<welshdragon>it's dead
10:45<Born_Acorn>Datacentre issues. When the server is back I'll start them.
10:47<planetmaker>not only tt-forums. The German one has problems, too ;)
10:48<Eddi|zuHause>really? that one worked earlier
10:48<planetmaker>I get 403 for the forums themselves there
10:48<Prof_Frink>Eddi|zuHause: The internets are on fire.
10:48<planetmaker>Otherwise it seems to work
10:49<Eddi|zuHause>indeed... strange...
10:49<Eddi|zuHause>maybe it was raided for supporting the pirate party ;)
10:50<Eddi|zuHause>well, there was a censorship debate going on ;)
10:50<planetmaker>at those forums?
10:51<Eddi|zuHause>the thread about "turning off sound"
10:51<planetmaker>I never read there anything except OpenTTD section ;)
10:51<planetmaker>Oh... maybe TTDPatch sometimes
10:51<Prof_Frink>Eddi|zuHause: Yeah, they took it down 'cause of 3407
10:51<Eddi|zuHause>which... kind of escalated

13:29<gleeb_>Does anyone else find smaller maps harder?
13:29<@petern>they're simpler, but harder
13:30<Ammler>it depense on the goals you have.
13:31<N35>Perhaps, im not a complete beginner, I can hold myown against a single player, one the maps i've been playing so far, but Im hopeless at making my rails more efficient, in terms of increasing the amount of trains, but decreasing the amount of rails. For instnace I had a factory that had 8rail station going in, just because I couldnt get it to work with using less, it was connected to four fars, each having two trains
13:31<N35>*fars = farms
13:32<Xaroth>then definitely check the ottdc maps
13:33<gleeb_>Ammler: My goals tend to be "Connect everything, be efficient". It's hard to do that with small maps.
13:33<Xaroth>top one sais it all tbh
13:33<Ammler>you should be able to handle ~6 plattforms with one line :-)
13:33-!-gleeb_ is now known as Gleeb
13:34<N35>thats insane
13:38<N35>So, Id have a station at each end, and then 6 trains on that?
13:38<N35>or one station at one end, and 6 stations at the other end
13:39-!-|Jeroen| [] has joined #openttd
13:40<Xaroth>if you do multiple stations to one it'll probably be unlikely that you can have them all enter on one line
13:41<Xaroth>unless you make a proper line out of it
13:44<N35>must be my problem then, i keep trying to make too many trains enter the same line, with no line going out, except the one going in as well

16:37<Muxy>hi men, kiss from goulp...
16:39<Muxy>i have a question about network_id
16:39<Muxy>hi yorick
16:39<@Rubidium>i have an answer about network_id, might very well not be what you're looking for
16:39<yorick>hi Muxy
16:39<yorick>don't ask to ask, just ask ;)
16:40<Muxy>the answer is that this nid is not unique ?
16:40<yorick>it is not ;)
16:40<yorick>worse, you can set it in config
16:40<Muxy>i didnt search trough all source code, but is this nid used ?
16:42<yorick>I believe it isn't
16:42<dihedral>it's not
16:42<@Rubidium>you expect us to answer a question that you can answer yourself in... 5 seconds?
16:43<Muxy>hum, i have my answer, but i would like it to be confirmed by the ones who knows
16:43<dihedral>@seen someone
16:43<@DorpsGek>dihedral: someone was last seen in #openttd 1 year, 23 weeks, 3 days, 1 hour, 50 minutes, and 56 seconds ago: * Someone here is gay
16:44*Rubidium thinks there is a chance that Muxy's answer to his question is correct
16:46<Muxy>Thanks Rubidium
16:47*Rubidium assigns Muxy for a probability theory course
16:47<Muxy>why not...
16:49<Muxy>but a irc course would be also good.. i dont know how to think like you ;)

16:52<Muxy>you can do that also, dihedral ?
16:54<Muxy>Hey Yorick, did you see the city mania goal servers ?
16:55<dihedral>Muxy: everybody can!
16:55<dihedral>even my tcl bot can
16:55<Muxy>check in the server list, server with lot of clients
16:55*yorick finally unignored dihedral :(

16:56<Muxy>dihedral: sure i can, but for the moment i dont know how to do it.
16:56<dihedral>Muddy, what do you consider 'a lot of clients'??
16:56<Muxy>more than 10 (muxy)
16:57<dihedral>oh - wrong highlight lol
16:57<yorick>muxy: no server with >10 clients with city mania in the name
16:57<Muxy>that one "! Akoz' metropolian server (GOAL)" has 13
16:58<planetmaker>I would be surprised if there's more than a handful of servers with > 10 clients
16:58*Ammler downloads buck rogers :-)
16:58<yorick>that's no city mania!
16:58<Ammler>planetmaker: is there one hand?
16:58<Muxy>no but same kind of goal : make a city grows up to 25k people
16:58<planetmaker>I'm surprised
16:59<planetmaker>... by the company counts :P
16:59<yorick>there are 2 fingers ;)

17:05<Muxy>yorick: you have a bot in order to get stats ?
17:05<yorick>Muxy: I have a script, yes :)
17:06<dihedral>yorick, yes, but your python implementation aint the nicest solution :-P
17:07<yorick>dihedral: you would do it better WITH!!!!!!OUT client modification?
17:07-!-Azrael- [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
17:07<dihedral>i would not embed python for one thing, as squirrel is available
17:08<Muxy>but squirrel is limited, is'nt it ?
17:08<dihedral>+ i would make sure that certain stuff was not done by openttd
17:08<planetmaker>squirrel is as all things very unlimited :P
17:09<dihedral>i.e. db access has not lost a single tick inside of openttd operations
17:09<yorick>dihedral: that script is pure python
17:09<planetmaker>but is it unlimited but countable or is it even uncountably infinite
17:10<yorick>and threads
17:10<dihedral>yorick, the script is pure python, but what executes the python?
17:10<yorick>dihedral: I mean the stats script
17:10<dihedral>but, it's an implementation ^^
17:11<dihedral>probably one though that will not last past .7.x
17:11<yorick>the stats script not?
17:11<dihedral>embeding python :-P
17:12<yorick>I'm not embedding python (currently)
17:12<yorick>I embedded python for that goal server
17:12<yorick>but the goal server project died

18:51<Eddi|zuHause>this is bad...
18:51<Eddi|zuHause>the replaced hard drive is causing the same kind of trouble as the old one...
18:52<Nite_Owl>bad MB connection?
18:52<Eddi|zuHause>how would that show?
18:53<Nite_Owl>or bad ribbon cable?
18:53<Eddi|zuHause>and what's a ribbon?
18:54<@Rubidium>maybe they replaced the replacement hard drive by the replaced hard drive
18:54<Nite_Owl>rephrase - bad cable that connects the HD to the MB
18:54<Eddi|zuHause>you can throw around such questions all you want, they mean nothing unless you actually explain them
18:55<Eddi|zuHause>do bad cables make *click* *clack* and then the computer freezes?
18:55<Eddi|zuHause>it's an SATA disk
18:57<TrueBrain>Eddi|zuHause: does the disk make a TICK TICK sound?
18:57<TrueBrain>like something trying to reset every time?
18:57<Eddi|zuHause>not every time
18:57<TrueBrain>but when the disk stops?
18:57<TrueBrain>as that is a head of the disk failing
18:58<Eddi|zuHause>more like when it's supposed to start again
18:58<TrueBrain>a very distinctive TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK TICK :p
18:58<TrueBrain>(it is the head rewinding and trying to locate the sector again, where the tick is the head hitting the magnet)
18:58<TrueBrain>(his starting position, for that matter)
18:59<TrueBrain>if you know the sound, you will always notice the sound :p

19:01<Chruker>Coding question: In c++ if I have a variable in a function and in the beginning of the function a value is backed up to the variable. Then the function recursively calls itself a couple of times. And finally the backed up value is then restored. Would that work, so that whatever value was first backed up would be restored?
19:01-!-Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
19:02<@Rubidium>calling a function does not change the values in the callee's function, unless you pass them by-reference or it's the variable where the return value is stored in
19:03<@Rubidium>values of variables
19:03<Nite_Owl>it becomes a process of elimination Eddi - replace each component or test out each component on another computer
19:03<Nite_Owl>leave the MB for last as that is a pain to replace
19:04<Nite_Owl>if everything else works then it is the MB
19:04<TrueBrain>there is always a change he replaced a bad drive with .. well .. a bad drive :)
19:04<TrueBrain>change = chance ;)
19:04<Nite_Owl>although the click-clack does come across as a HD problem
19:04<@Rubidium>the real question is: is the ticking due to the freezing or the freezing due to the ticking; could be that the disk puts itself into safe mode for some reason
19:05<TrueBrain>if power fails, it makes a single click ;)
19:05<TrueBrain>(electro magnet stopping to function, steady magnet taking in the heads :p)
19:05<Chruker>eddi, maybe your bug migrated from your screen to the harddrive?
19:05<TrueBrain>haha :) Finding a bug inside a harddrive is a nice free disk from your manifacture ;)
19:05<TrueBrain>(it is sealed tight :p)
19:06<@Rubidium>TrueBrain: really? You would need to open it, thus voiding the warranty
19:06<TrueBrain>Rubidium: haha :) Valid argument :p
19:06<Eddi|zuHause>the freezing system is a side effect from the frozen harddrive... like if i try to copy something onto the drive, the system fails to do so, and a few seconds later it freezes
