[09:17:29] <Bronz|work> hi Apsup.
[09:19:24] <Apsup> morning
[11:06:04] -!- Aria [Aria!Aria@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[11:06:11] <Aria> Morning
[11:06:16] <Aria> When did the bot come back?
[11:06:30] <Bronz|work> Yesterday, it was here.
[11:06:43] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria.
[11:07:12] <Aria> I woke up now
[11:07:15] <Aria> I mean, it was nice
[11:07:21] <Aria> But not quite as intended
[11:21:08] <Aria> So how's your day?
[11:21:27] <Bronz|work> I'm quite tired, actually.
[11:21:34] <Bronz|work> I'm a little surprised by that.
[11:21:38] <Bronz|work> Otherwise, fine.
[11:22:08] <Aria> Given that we went to bed at the same time, and I'm very tired after having woken up at 11, it's not very surprising to me
[11:22:17] <Bronz|work> Fair enough
[11:24:27] -!- Apsup has quit [Ping timeout: 180 seconds]
[11:24:30] <Aria> That folding idea's guy made a 6 hour Dark Souls 3 video
[11:24:52] <Bronz|work> Oh nooo
[11:24:59] <Bronz|work> You should play some Dark Souls 3
[11:25:03] <Bronz|work> Also, 6 hours...?
[11:25:12] <Bronz|work> It didn't sink in, but that's looooong
[11:25:14] <Aria> Yeah I'm not watching 6 hours of that
[11:31:33] <Bronz|work> Yeah, that's fair.
[11:31:50] <Bronz|work> So, what are your plans for today?
[11:32:06] <Bronz|work> Gonna make some waffles/pancakes for breakfast?
[11:32:37] <Aria> I'm gonna get my camera
[11:32:54] <Aria> And then give Medium another shot and get frustrated that I can't see anything with that screen
[11:33:09] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[11:33:12] <Bronz|work> Ok, I'll go get lunch now.
[11:33:14] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup.
[11:33:18] <Bronz|work> Bye.
[11:33:34] <Aria> Hi
[11:33:35] <Apsup> Hi bye
[11:39:01] <Aria> >.>
[11:39:05] <Aria> I got my camera
[11:39:13] <Aria> It comes in a tiny camera sized box
[11:39:27] <Aria> And then there is a monoprice cable extender next to it
[11:39:47] <Aria> Like, with the monoprice meant to be hung on racks packaging
[11:40:42] <Aria> Compatible with Playstation Move and Xbox 360 Kinect it says on it
[11:46:27] <Bronz|work> Well...
[11:46:37] <Bronz|work> You might have to buy 2 more USB3 cables...
[12:28:09] <Aria> I mean
[12:28:13] <Aria> They say its good enough
[12:28:19] <Aria> It has to be good enough, right?
[12:28:20] <Aria> I used it some
[12:28:28] <Bronz|work> And?
[12:28:29] <Aria> Not sure if its the game or what, but at some point it stopped working
[12:28:31] <Aria> For a few second
[12:28:32] <Aria> s
[12:28:39] <Aria> When it was working, it seems to work fine
[12:28:42] <Aria> Cable isn't long enough
[12:28:55] <Aria> With the computer where it is it is long enough
[12:28:57] <Bronz|work> =/
[12:29:01] <Aria> But not if we move the computer back
[12:33:03] <Bronz|work> I mean, that's also the case for the right-most sensor
[12:33:19] <Aria> Yes
[12:33:53] <Bronz|work> But you can now turn around without issue?
[12:34:20] <Aria> Yeah
[12:34:48] <Bronz|work> Well, that's good!
[12:34:49] <Aria> Do you think you can borrow a DVI extender from work?
[12:34:59] <Bronz|work> DVI extender?
[12:35:08] <Bronz|work> Male->Female DVI cable?
[12:35:20] <Aria> Yeah
[12:35:31] <Bronz|work> I'll see if we have one.
[12:35:44] <Aria> If I had one, I could use the computer without moving it back
[12:36:00] <Aria> It needs like 10cm
[12:36:08] <Aria> But has to be dual band
[12:37:56] <Bronz|work> DVI does analog?
[12:38:26] <Aria> dual link*
[12:39:13] <Bronz|work> http://www.buzzle.com
[12:39:17] <Bronz|work> Uhm....
[12:39:50] <Aria> Sure...
[12:40:08] <Bronz|work> It's backwards.
[12:40:15] <Bronz|work> Also, with DVI your data isn't secure! D=
[12:40:41] <Bronz|work> What if someone cuts your cable in half, and puts their own device in the middle of your home cinema!
[12:44:09] <Aria> Also, no consumer wants the signal to be secure
[12:49:38] <Aria> Twitch is hiring
[12:57:08] <Bronz|work> Devs?
[12:59:20] <Aria> Yes
[12:59:41] <Aria> Also a finance manager in London
[12:59:50] <Aria> One IT in London
[13:00:49] <Aria> They have a ton of positions open
[13:01:32] <Aria> I mentioned because I saw a tweet saying it, not because I actually thought it was a good deal or anything
[13:04:54] <Bronz|work> Ah, fair enough.
[13:12:10] <Aria> This guy made a video complaining that the Marvel movies have natural colours as opposed to hollywood colours
[13:12:21] <Aria> It's got 1m views
[13:15:15] <Aria> He also made a comparison between a still of a close up of a guy standing behind a grey wall and like, a fast cut trailer
[13:15:48] <Aria> Admittedly, that one frame looked a bit bland, but whatever, it's probably good for the scene it's in
[13:16:07] <Bronz|work> It's not like marvel movies aren't vibrant.
[13:16:25] <Aria> But like, that's on the left, and on the right is every establishing shot from a sci fi movie cut fast together
[13:16:34] <Aria> I think the Marvel movies look great
[13:16:43] <Aria> I want more people to colour grade the way Marvel does
[13:17:56] <Aria> Sure, more vibrance is probably not bad, but stop making every scene one colour, and stop making half the image unnatural black
[14:16:16] <Aria> My Star Wars edit is great
[14:16:23] <Aria> I'm refining it to put it on YouTube
[14:16:29] <Bronz|work> Ah, ok.
[14:16:33] <Aria> since Backstroke of the West hasn't been taken down, I assume it's alright
[14:26:24] <Bronz|work> There's a guy calling me on mobile...
[14:26:30] <Bronz|work> But I can't answer, coz work.
[14:27:55] <Aria> It was tesco guy, it's fine
[14:28:00] <Aria> He just said he'll be early
[14:28:08] <Bronz|work> Oh ok, cool.
[14:37:35] <Aria> Why is the washing machine door locked when its not spun in 30m or so?
[14:37:42] <Aria> Is that normal?
[14:37:55] <Aria> I know it takes breaks, but those are usually not very long, right?
[14:44:19] <Bronz|work> Not 30 minutes, I think...
[14:44:33] <Bronz|work> There is a light on it when it's running.
[15:37:35] <Bronz|work> Ok, bye
