[08:41:33] <Aria> Hi
[08:41:35] <Aria> I updated Windows
[08:41:39] <Aria> It looks different now
[08:41:42] <Bronz|work> =O
[08:41:45] <Aria> Didn't expect that
[08:41:52] <Bronz|work> You figured out the broken update?
[08:41:57] <Bronz|work> Also, Hello!
[08:42:09] <Aria> I mean, it just started on its own without prompting me
[08:42:20] <Aria> Motherboard sound still doesn't work, even though the realtek software looks different
[08:42:39] <Aria> Lemme be right back
[08:42:44] -!- Aria has quit [Quit: Leaving]

[08:44:11] <Aria> Hi
[08:44:22] <Bronz|work> Did that help?
[08:44:30] <Aria> Help what?
[08:44:33] <Aria> I updated hexchat
[08:44:40] <Bronz|work> Oh, ok.
[08:44:53] <Bronz|work> I thought you rebooted due to the issues with your mobo.
[08:45:36] <Aria> Nah, I've given up. The monitor passthrough works
[08:49:12] <Aria> Windows has a new UI for choosing between white or black cursor
[08:49:47] <Aria> They still have the old full cursor menu where you can use any cursor theme you want. But since they specifically added the black cursor thing, I expected it to be nice and polished
[08:50:04] <Aria> Except the black cursor is super aliased instead of just being identical to the white cursor but inverted colours.
[08:50:55] <Aria> The start menu works now.. so thats cool
[08:54:42] <Bronz|work> Did you know you can rescale the start menu?
[08:54:47] <Bronz|work> You can drag it out and make it bigger.
[08:54:59] <Aria> Only up
[08:55:13] <Bronz|work> You should be able to drag it out to the right as well
[08:55:25] <Aria> But its presented like I should be able to scale the width too
[08:55:27] <Bronz|work> Though you'll need multple 'catagories' of windows metro icons.
[08:55:33] <Aria> Oh ok
[08:55:34] <Aria> Yeah
[08:55:35] <Aria> You can
[08:55:46] <Aria> But in larger chunks
[08:55:52] <Bronz|work> Yeah...
[08:55:56] <Aria> Also it doesn't get saved
[08:56:59] <Bronz|work> No? for the windows course guy, it did.
[09:00:09] <Aria> Height is saved
[09:04:12] <Aria> My entire twitter feed is US politics...
[09:05:29] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Aleksi@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[09:05:35] <Aria> Hello
[09:05:43] <Bronz|work> Hey Apsup.
[09:06:09] <Bronz|work> Election day is real soon, so people are getting their last-minute politics out.
[09:06:11] <Aria> Why is this google video on vimeo?
[09:06:16] <Aria> Who wants to use Vimeo!?
[09:07:51] <Apsup> mornin'
[09:11:59] <Aria> What's the max bitrate for youtube?
[09:12:23] <Aria> I can only see the current bitrate, and its variable bitrate
[09:12:50] <Aria> Eh, anyway, this video is currently at 80k, which is more than vimeo's max at 60k
[09:13:54] <Aria> I guess using k when talking about bitrates is weird.
[09:14:32] <Aria> 80m vs 60m makes more sense
[09:15:04] <Aria> Um... that's even worse, because now its milli
[09:15:08] <Aria> 80M vs 60M
[09:17:12] <Apsup> My morning was ridiculous. Slepts over half an hour in ten minute chunks, hitting snooze every 10 minutes.
[09:17:22] <Apsup> Managed to continue dream in every cycle.
[09:17:30] <Aria> Thats just three snoozes
[09:17:47] <Apsup> It felt like more.
[09:17:52] <Apsup> Also over half an hour.
[09:17:59] <Apsup> It was at least 4, I think 5.
[09:19:07] <Bronz|work> Aria has slept 6 hours in 10 minute snooze increments.
[09:19:09] <Bronz|work> Like, daily.
[09:19:23] <Bronz|work> That's not normal, Aria. Apsup is a normal human.
[09:20:24] <Aria> So you can buy 8k/120hz monitors. But you can't carry a signal to that, right?
[09:20:48] <Aria> The IO on the back of the TV won't actually be able to show you the things they show you on the demo unit
[09:21:36] <Bronz|work> Eh, just use an ethernet cable.
[09:21:45] <Bronz|work> Cat5 can do it, or Cat6.
[09:22:12] <Bronz|work> Maybe it has multiple inputs for all the different corners?
[09:23:37] <Aria> Cat6 is 10gbps
[09:23:40] <Aria> That's like half HDMI
[09:24:27] <Aria> Displayport is 26gbps (HDMI is 18)
[09:24:35] <Bronz|work> Oh, well, go for CAT7 then.
[09:24:44] <Bronz|work> 100gbps
[09:25:03] <Aria> Seems thunderbolt is the best at 40gbps
[09:25:17] <Aria> Oh ok, that would work
[09:28:19] <Aria> Titan XP doesn't support 8K/120hz output. Max resolution is 8k/60hz. Also it's highest bandwidth output is DP1.4
[09:29:25] <Aria> Also that TV does HDR, but Titan XP only supports 8 bit colour at 8K/60hz
[09:30:59] <Bronz|work> I guess that TV is for NHK viewers?
[09:31:19] <Bronz|work> That, and/or future proofing yourself?
[09:31:24] <Bronz|work> 'cept it won't have inputs...
[09:31:29] <Aria> Oh maybe whatever traditional TV uses is higher quality?
[09:31:51] <Aria> Isn't that usually also HDMI? Something goes into the wall into a box, and then HDMI from box to TV?
[09:32:01] <Aria> I guess you just plug the thing from the wall into the TV
[09:32:19] <Bronz|work> Some TVs have a decoder built in...
[09:32:23] <Bronz|work> Still though.
[09:37:27] <Aria> Is that still coaxial?
[09:40:20] <Aria> Ok so coaxial can do 100gbps if you do it just right. But you'll have to replace the cables, you can just use whatever you already have in your house built 20 years ago
[09:51:15] <Aria> Ok I think I need to watch this US debate thing. Every single tweet is about it, and it sounds like they were having a fun time
[09:51:57] <Bronz|work> I could see that, with Trump being the way he is.
[09:53:47] <Apsup> I went to bed when I was starting. I was thinking of watching, but decided against it.
[09:56:27] <Aria> What's Kira Kira Star Night DX?

[09:58:02] <Bronz|work> Hi again Aria.
[09:58:13] <Aria> Ok so its like a shmup but you're trying to get hit by everything instead of avoiding
[09:58:45] <Aria> Auto scrolling stage, there are pickups that fly around in patterns, and you wanna position yourself such that you touch all of them
[09:58:51] <Aria> https://www.youtube.com
[09:59:12] <Aria> Also it runs on hardware Famicom?
[09:59:28] <Aria> It looks alright
[11:17:50] <Aria> Does this work http://i.imgur.com
[11:18:09] <Aria> ignoring the stupid tray on the side. The trees are what Im asking about
[11:18:30] <Aria> Maybe I should go with higher quality billboard trees...
[11:18:41] <Apsup> Does this work in which way? Does it look like a tiny park, yes.
[11:18:56] <Aria> Yes exactly
[11:19:04] <Apsup> Maybe little more variety for the trees?
[11:19:13] <Apsup> There is some, but maybe different lenghts.
[11:19:21] <Apsup> Some tiny baby trees there?
[11:19:24] <Apsup> Dunno.
[11:19:55] <Aria> Its 3 variants across 15 trees. I don't wanna spend too many verts on something that will be so small on screen...
[11:20:04] <Aria> Size variation I can do though, thats free
[11:20:06] <Aria> Good idea
[11:20:10] <Aria> Ill add some now
[11:20:17] <Bronz|work> Are those orbs...?
[11:20:28] <Bronz|work> Make them pine tries, cones are a lot cheaper.
[11:20:29] <Apsup> Collect 100 and you get extra life.
[11:20:57] <Bronz|work> Planet coaster is released in 5 weeks.
[11:21:13] <Bronz|work> I think the full, finished version.
[11:21:37] <Bronz|work> *Pine trees
[11:22:20] <Bronz|work> Also, at that distance, the cone only needs like, 6 sides.
[11:22:34] <Bronz|work> So that's only 7 verts.
[11:24:44] <Aria> http://i.imgur.com
[11:25:14] <Aria> Those orbs are 18 faces..
[11:25:21] <Aria> These are not expensive trees
[11:25:54] <Bronz|work> Fair enough.
[11:44:00] <Bronz|work> I think it looks quite good, but could you add a path/pond?
[11:44:09] <Bronz|work> I think that would sell it much better.
[11:44:38] <Bronz|work> I guess that's mostly texture work.
[11:44:55] <Bronz|work> Also, these buildings are going to be viewed from below, right?
[12:13:30] <Aria> Hi
[12:13:39] <Aria> Um yes, viewed from bellow
[12:13:46] <Aria> So you can't see the pond...
[12:16:52] <Aria> I was afk
[12:16:54] <Aria> Am back now
[12:22:28] <Bronz|work> You also wouldn't be able to see all the trees in the back.
[12:22:41] <Aria> You can see those if the building falls over
[12:28:18] <Bronz|work> Ah, true. But so can you a pond, then
[12:29:21] <Aria> The water in the bond would fall out
[12:29:26] <Aria> Why bring attention to it?
[12:29:49] <Aria> Also from the side you can see all the trees
[12:29:50] <Bronz|work> Oh, that's true

[13:42:48] <Aria> I found a way to repurpose my spinning windmill
[13:43:06] <Aria> http://i.imgur.com
[13:43:08] <Aria> How is that?
[13:43:46] <Bronz|work> ...?
[13:44:11] <Aria> What?
[13:44:19] <Aria> Its a building with a windmill on top..
[13:44:23] <Aria> A large one
[13:47:12] <Aria> Is that stupid? Do windmills not go on top of buildings? =P
[13:54:08] <Aria> Apsup, can you offer more substantial feedback?
[13:54:38] <Apsup> It's a waterslide?
[13:54:58] <Aria> No, just wavey hallways
[13:55:05] <Aria> I tried to make it look modern...
[13:55:08] <Apsup> why
[13:55:42] <Aria> Because most of the buildings will just be square, so the uniques should be very unique I figured...
[13:57:50] <Apsup> You can use round shapes to differentiate from squares without going silly
[13:58:58] <Aria> Fine, ignore the stupid circle..
[13:59:17] <Aria> http://i.imgur.com
[13:59:18] <Aria> There
[14:03:42] <Bronz|work> It looks like a very impractical shopping bag.
[14:04:32] <Aria> But imagine if it was not a shopping bag but instead a building?
[14:09:31] <Bronz|work> No comment
[14:10:23] <Aria> I'll.. assume its good and make another one
[14:15:37] <Bronz|work> I'm hungry, and I have some acid reflux
[14:23:58] <Apsup> I just ate. Not hungry anymore.
[14:24:18] <Aria> I am
[14:37:44] <Bronz|work> Ok, going home.
[14:38:02] <Aria> ...Why did you not leave 7 minutes ago?
