[05:55:45] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup!
[05:58:21] <Apsup> Morning
[06:25:10] <Bronz|work> Hey Apsup!
[06:26:22] <Apsup> Hihi again.
[06:28:41] <Apsup> Few days ago I put a bunch of steam trading cards on the market and they have been turning into money.
[06:28:58] <Apsup> I have over 3€ of Steam money now. That's like two super cheap indie games off sale.
[06:29:06] <Bronz|work> That's true.
[06:29:10] <Bronz|work> Or half a Dark souls.

[09:29:02] <Aria> Hi
[09:29:08] <Aria> I slept less long, but still very long
[09:42:14] <Bronz|work> Oh well, at least it was less long.
[09:58:40] <Bronz|work> Hey Aria, I wanna submit a photo to the IBM photo contest.
[09:58:45] <Bronz|work> The theme is "Pets we love".
[09:58:56] <Aria> Aha?
[09:58:57] <Bronz|work> I wanna take that collar we have, hang it on a wire, and pretend we have a ghost dog.
[09:59:10] <Bronz|work> (Y'know, halloween theme)
[09:59:18] <Aria> =P
[09:59:27] <Aria> Also pretty sure we don't have that anymore
[09:59:36] <Bronz|work> ... =/
[10:37:28] <Aria> But eh... you can do one in CG and composite it over a picture
[11:02:39] <Bronz|work> Hmm, I could...

[12:18:03] <Aria> I didn't realize I left
[12:27:03] <Bronz|work> But I wanted to tell you stuff!
[12:27:14] <Bronz|work> Like, I have Wednesday/Thursday/Friday off next week.
[12:27:51] <Aria> three days? That's cool
[12:27:59] <Aria> (Y)
[12:37:10] <Aria> Now I can't get sound through my monitor or the motherboard
[12:39:29] <Bronz|work> Because of motherboard drivers?
[12:49:56] <Aria> Maybe?
[12:49:59] <Aria> No it was working earlier today
[12:52:06] <Aria> I'm gonna play some Trackmania VR now
[12:52:11] <Aria> I might barf, lets find out
[13:00:39] <Bronz|work> =D
[13:18:09] <Aria> Can't figure out how to launch it
[13:18:24] <Aria> Also that new 45 fps stuff is making me feel sick
[13:18:28] <Bronz|work> You're a real tech genius =P
[13:18:45] <Aria> In Oculus Home
[13:21:05] <Bronz|work> Man, so many people are arguing on what "De sto og hang" means
[13:21:17] <Bronz|work> "Hanging out, hanging around, hanging about, etc.
[13:21:27] <Bronz|work> Apperantly, all those mean different things?
[13:21:37] <Bronz|work> And then someone brought in loiter, and all hell broke loose.
[13:23:25] <Aria> They should argue about how to get trackmania to output to the Oculus
[13:24:25] <Bronz|work> https://www.reddit.com
[13:24:30] <Bronz|work> Not enabled in the current build
[13:24:32] <Bronz|work> (?)
[13:24:38] <Aria> That's 4 months old
[13:24:47] <Aria> PC Gaming Wiki says it is in the game now

[13:25:31] <Aria> Hi again
[13:25:59] <Bronz|work> https://steamcommunity.com
[13:26:02] <Bronz|work> Nope
[13:26:17] <Bronz|work> When PSVR comes out, say the devs
[13:26:23] <Bronz|work> (though they said... maybe?)
[13:26:24] <Aria> But thats today..
[13:26:50] <Aria> Well that's a waste of disk space.
[13:27:36] <Aria> TF2, Quake and Quake 2 have official VR support

[13:28:04] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup!
[13:32:32] <Apsup> hello
[13:37:21] <Aria> I tried a VR rollercoaster. CastleCoaster
[13:37:28] <Aria> Not quite Trackmania, but fun none the less
[13:37:43] <Bronz|work> It'll have to do =P
[13:38:13] <Aria> Hi Apsup. Are you good at computers?
[13:38:43] <Apsup> yes, no, maybe.
[13:38:49] <Apsup> Depends.
[13:39:00] <Aria> I don't have sound in Windows. Do you know how to fix it?
[13:39:50] <Apsup> Not outright. I would just test different things until something worked.
[13:40:19] <Bronz|work> Super pro right here.
[13:40:25] <Bronz|work> Have you tried something different?
[13:40:33] <Aria> What kind of things do I try to test?
[13:41:57] <Apsup> rebooting for first. Making sure it's windows and not the hardware, crying and begging the computer to give you sound, googling "windows no sound" and such.
[13:42:22] <Aria> No it works with Linux
[13:42:31] <Aria> Which is the work around Im trying to set up now
[13:42:36] <Bronz|work> ...
[13:42:44] <Bronz|work> Are you running a VM that pipes in sound from the host?
[13:42:50] <Aria> Exactly
[13:42:51] <Bronz|work> and then outputs that sound?
[13:42:53] <Bronz|work> >_>
[13:42:53] <Aria> Or rather, Im trying to
[13:43:28] <Bronz|work> I bet €100$ that the issue is with the new sound drivers you installed yesterday.
[13:43:43] <Aria> The issue has been there for weeks
[13:43:53] <Bronz|work> Oh.. Oh, that issue.
[13:44:00] <Aria> It's just that it now also affects my monitor passthrough, which was my old work around
[13:44:15] <Aria> And that is not going through realtek in any way, so those new realtek drivers should not cause issues
[13:44:28] <Bronz|work> Well, you downloaded 3 or so different drivers, didn't you?
[13:44:38] <Aria> Also, if the realtek drivers don't work right, you should get up to date realtek drivers
[13:44:51] <Aria> Oh I did update gpu drivers yesterday, come to think of it
[13:45:06] <Aria> But I mean, I do that regularly, and usually sound works
[13:48:14] <Bronz|work> Hmm-mm.
[13:53:32] <Aria> I asked for help in #vbox
[13:53:35] <Aria> "<klaus-vb> AriaDesu: vbox only does pci passthrough on linux host. doesn't exist for windows host, so that's killing your otherwise good plan."
[13:53:48] <Aria> So that's not gonna work
[13:59:07] <Bronz|work> =(
[13:59:24] <Bronz|work> Also, he called your plan "good"?
[13:59:25] <Aria> But someone who isn't me said it was a good plan!
[13:59:47] <Bronz|work> "My drivers don't work great, so I'm going to load the linux kernel for their drivers!
[13:59:58] <Aria> Honestly, Linux with alsa and nothing else in vbox probably costs less than the Realtek GUI
[14:00:39] <Bronz|work> Actually, when I say it like that...
[14:04:49] <Aria> A Oracle employee no less!
[14:04:56] <Aria> An?
[14:05:58] <Bronz|work> An.
[14:06:04] <Bronz|work> Oracle starts with 'oh'.
[14:23:44] <Aria> Can you not prevent a bullet from ricochetting by shooting it into a tree?
[14:24:03] <Aria> Or a pool, or brick
[14:28:36] <Bronz|work> Yes, but harder materials are generally less safe
[14:28:41] <Bronz|work> Since they're more likely to bounce.
[14:28:50] <Aria> You should head home
[14:28:53] <Bronz|work> Dirt is most commonly used (Big 'ol pile of dirt)
[14:28:56] <Bronz|work> Water works well too.
