[11:53:14] <Apsup> Hello people!
[12:29:48] <Bronzdragon> Hey Apsup!

[14:08:13] <Bronzdragon> Hey yoshokatana.
[14:08:34] <yoshokatana> hallo
[14:12:15] <yoshokatana> hmm
[14:12:39] <yoshokatana> so I installed ubuntu 14.4 in a vm, and all I’m getting is a blank desktop
[14:12:39] <Robobuntoo> oo-BOON-too!
[14:12:42] <yoshokatana> no menus or nothing
[14:13:58] <yoshokatana> when I right click on the desktop I get the contextual menu, so I know it's...working?
[14:14:12] <yoshokatana> did they remove the status bar and everything though?
[14:14:35] <yoshokatana> or rather, what’s the default program that does all that? is it part of gnome?
[14:14:49] <Bronzdragon> On Ubuntu?
[14:14:49] <Robobuntoo> oo-BOON-too!
[14:14:52] <Bronzdragon> It's Unity
[14:14:59] <Bronzdragon> Sounds like Unity is broken.
[14:15:04] <Bronzdragon> You can try running Gnome.
[14:15:23] <yoshokatana> ah, right, they changed it
[14:15:33] <yoshokatana> is there a default keybind to bring up a terminal or somesuch?
[14:16:55] <apreche> are you using VirtualBox?
[14:17:12] <apreche> sometimes when a distro gets updated you have to wait for VirtualBox to update to support it propelry.
[14:17:15] <Bronzdragon> Ctrl+Alt+T does it, if I remember.
[14:17:42] <Bronzdragon> (Bring up the Terminal in U-bahn-tu.
[14:21:55] <yoshokatana> I’m using parallels, but that’s probably the case
[14:22:08] <apreche> yeah parallels also usually needs updates
[14:22:38] <yoshokatana> the strange thing is that everything else seems to be working. context menus, file browsing
[14:22:50] <yoshokatana> just no window chrome or window management
[14:22:54] <yoshokatana> or menu bars
[14:23:07] <Bronzdragon> So Nautlius is working, but Unity isn't.
[14:23:36] <yoshokatana> yeah
[14:31:50] <yoshokatana> I’m gonna run a check on my iso and reinstall
[15:39:07] <Bronzdragon> Well?
[16:11:18] <yoshokatana> no dice
[17:15:52] <Bronzdragon> Wut's this, an RPG?
[17:15:58] <Bronzdragon> Coz that's what you use dice for.

[18:32:56] <GauntletWizard> Good morning
[18:46:35] <Bronzdragon> Hallo
[18:46:44] <GauntletWizard> http://www.wired.co.uk
[18:47:03] <GauntletWizard> Too much of history has been whitewashed to ignore the crazies that made it happen
[18:47:32] <Bronzdragon> That's a little sad.
[18:47:56] <GauntletWizard> I'm not entirely certain if his scientific merits are what make his story interesting...
[18:48:04] <GauntletWizard> or if it's the weird side of his life
[18:48:12] <GauntletWizard> I think both help, like with Feynman
[18:51:01] <Bronzdragon> That was the most anti-climactic way
[18:51:06] <Bronzdragon> Aria could've come home.
[18:51:21] <Bronzdragon> He knocked on the door and asked for cash for the cab.
[18:51:26] <Bronzdragon> Then he left to get cash.
[19:20:10] <GauntletWizard> I am listening
[19:20:15] <GauntletWizard> to the most depressing talk
[19:20:39] <GauntletWizard> 90% of US high schools don't have any computer science program
[19:53:00] <yoshokatana> gulp isn’t very DRY https://gist.github.com
[20:08:41] <apreche> the CS at my high school was a math teacher teaching Visual Basic from a book
[20:08:46] <apreche> they also learned it from the book
[21:10:01] <GauntletWizard> I get that coffeescript is trying to get rid of syntatic sugar...
[21:10:15] <GauntletWizard> but, seriously, () and {} are actaully kinda nice for humans
[21:20:13] <yoshokatana> eh
[21:20:40] <yoshokatana> .pipe concat() makes sense
[21:20:48] <yoshokatana> also someObj =
[21:20:53] <yoshokatana> prop: value
[21:20:59] <yoshokatana> otherprop: othervalue
[21:42:52] <GauntletWizard> I don't ahve any probelm with prop: value
[21:43:03] <GauntletWizard> I just like { prop: value }
