    @Vadi2 Were you caught out by the Smartphones networks adopting DST in Queensland (despite it not being used there since 1972... :laughing: ) - did you get to avail yourself of the compensatory :coffee: ?
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    I did actually, for some reason my phone which was set to "automatic network timezone" was set to Sydneys timezone so I gained an hour in the morning...
    I thought I'd be fine since I did that. Kind of stupid
    A whole lot of people went to work an hour early here too
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Well it only affected Queensland according to my source the BBC (may not play where you are as I suspect the Beeb geo-lock some of their content).
    Damn and blast and piles of :hankey:, those ultra cheap ink cartridges I bought to test a "new" (to me anyway) HP Printer had single use seals on the bottom and since I did some cartridge juggling to get it to work two of the three (the ones that got removed and reseated) have dumped their entire contents - apart from the amount that the printer drew up into its internal reservoirs at the print head - all over the inside of the printer and onto the stack of paper held within... :hurtrealbad:

    Yeah it is only QLD
    Turns out that one phone provider stuffed up, they were offering to pay for people's coffee's haha
    Oh dear

    Are you OK Vadim? I can see that things are a bit inclement a bit south of you in NSW... :worried:

    @SlySven

    Should you wish to prevent systemd being installed when updating from Debian Wheezy to Jessie create a file like /etc/apt/preferences.d/local-pin-init containing:

        Package: systemd-sysv
        Pin: release o=Debian
        Pin-Priority: -1

    and ensure you uninstall the Gnome desktop and choose another as that has a "requires" dependency on systemd. Do this before changing the wheezy entries in your /etc/apt/sources.list or the more modern /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*.list components form to the jessie ones.

    I've updated to Ubuntu that uses it and it runs ok. Don't care much for what is underneath as long as it works
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Well that's the thing, if it doesn't run ok then your system is in big trouble - and un-installing it is a precarious process apparently. I heard that Ubuntu had switched away from their own creation upstart IIRC. Ah well, Your Milage May Vary as they say!

    Ah its time for that Annual Songfest The Eurovision Song Contest and the most recent addition to the group of European Countries that are taking part is... Australia :confounded:!
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Yes haha
    Lot of fans here

    Hello - I'm back but very busy with getting my new house ready to move into; but in the meantime: is AhemdCharles still with us - I note when I do a git fetch --all that his repository for Mudlet seems to have vaporised?
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    He hasn't been on in a while
    That would be a real pity if he removed his stuff, he had a lot...
    That we were hoping to merge in the 3.1 release
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Oh dear, SourceForge is down... :unamused:
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Yeah for a good two days now

    I am physically moving (house) in the next few days - I suspect I will be going dark until I can get desk/system/broadband back up... :pray:
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Hope the move goes well!
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Well I'm sort of back - the move got a bit hurried to meet a tenancy end deadline - and it got a bit "grab everything and stuff it in a container" towards the end. I've now to continue unpacking and finding things, right now I'm still looking for an 8-way 100Mbp network hub to get some PCs properly hooked up and there is plenty of non-PC stuff to be sorted as well. Sigh

    Moving sucks, man

    Installing the Windoze 10 Update on Main PC - I hope it doesn't trash the dual boot... :worried:
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Ooh, good luck
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Bother, it failed, even as Administrator (er, root !) Code 80070002 or something like that...

    @SlySven
    Given that Vadim is on holiday at present, and I commented on a recent choice of Gravitar that he used, I think it is worth posting here a slight rework of that image that I made for a comment in GitHub.
    *emulating a deep gravelly voice* Vadim - "He'll be back..."

    @Schweetz
    Hello everyone. Is there anyone here?
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Oh hey. Forgot to check this channel @Schweetz
    So since moving, I have to give my cpu cooler fan a little push for it to get going...
    I think it might be a little broken haha. It does a wonderful job once it's running, the temperatures drop instantly. Having it go from the get-go is the problem.

    Oooh, that promises to be interesting - I won the auction on a certain, well-known, on-line site so a second user copy of Windows 7 Home should be winging it's way to me so I can get that Vista Laptop upgraded to a 'Doze version that will continue to work (for some finite, limited, arbitrary values of "work") past the End-Of-Extended-Support deadline of April this year. Mind you even with access to http://wu.krelay.de/en/ the updating process for Lose 7 is no longer as smooth as it once was as M$ tries to force users to Lose 10 by making getting updates for the older versions harder. The decision to roll all the monthly updates into one lump might have seemed to be a good move - but removing the detailed listing of what each update "fixes" is a real system breaker should just one of the bundled updates NOT be suitable (in a system crashing way) for your particular combination of hardware/software. :worried:
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Hoorah - a positive Windows 7 experience for me - the update from Vista worked - the product code activated fine (no need to phone M$ central) - slight issue of having to install SP1 and >200 updates - but http://wu.krelay.de/en/ really helps the latter. Just doing a full "System Disk Monthly" defrag with myDefrag... :grinning:

    That is astounding! :astonished:

    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Would be an interesting project for someone to plug that into Mudlets map format.

    @vadi2
    That's kinda cool SuperTuxKart got Greenlit on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=850895445
    I was thinking about getting Mudlet on there here and there, but frankly the out of the box user experience is nowhere I'd like it to be before that can happen yet. Would like to see https://github.com/Mudlet/newbie-tuts in action first before it happens
