    That restored some confidence in them

    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

    Installing the Windoze 10 Update on Main PC - I hope it doesn't trash the dual boot... :worried:

    Ooh, good luck

    Bother, it failed, even as Administrator (er, root !) Code 80070002 or something like that...

    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..."

    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:

    @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

    On which side of the road do you normally drive Vadim and have any Nation's roads got features that you love/hate compared to other countries? During my trips to France with my Mother in the last couple of years I missed the reflective British cat's eyes that we invented many year ago; on the other hand I quite liked the driver-level traffic light repeater lamps for the driver at the front of the traffic waiting at them {but that is needed to make up for the lack of lights on the far side of the junction} - I hated the French traffic light sequence that goes straight from red to green (the UK sequence goes red to red & amber to green) but on the other hand they have some junctions that go to a permanent flashing amber which I think means process with care/no priority to any direction - which is also reflected in some road signs also being fitted with a single flashing amber lamp. In the UK the only example of this is really the "Zebra-crossing" where the amber lamps have mutated into "Belisha Beacons"... :grinning:
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Canada and Australia use red -> green as well without the amber in the middle. I don't drive so I don't worry about such problems!
    keneanung
    @keneanung
    Germany has red->red amber -> green as well.
    Permanent flashing amber is a general warning sign here. Some traffic lights turn off at night and the part of the crossing that has to yield has the flashing amber

    "Gitter has been acquired by GitLab! "
    Hmm
    Erik Pettis
    @Oneymus
    I like GitLab.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    At least they're not shutting it down.
    Erik Pettis
    @Oneymus
    I use it for my personal stuff.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    WOE
    Erik Pettis
    @Oneymus
    In fact, most of the stuff on my GitHub is mirrored from my GitLab.
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    I just agreed to @Chris7 that we'd migrate from launchpad to github
    Now there's a new thing just as we're ready to migrate
    Haha this is hilarious. I'm getting pop-ups from Gitter that it's having trouble communicating. This is the first time I've ever gotten them.
    keneanung
    @keneanung
    I like gitlab as well. They have some thungs github doesn't (but are missing some things github has, too)
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    It's probably nice, and it's open-source. I'd like to get more people involved in Mudlet dev though, and moving off the more popular platform won't facilitate that, so eh.
    keneanung
    @keneanung
    It's actually "open-core"...
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Eh... what?
    keneanung
    @keneanung
    They have an open source base and some closed source additions, which can be used when you paid for a license.
    Gitlab.com is that paid version btw
    Vadim Peretokin
    @vadi2
    Cool.
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven

    Gitlab.com is that paid version btw

    Sounds like Travis.org (free) vs Travis.com ($$$)

    keneanung
    @keneanung
    not quite. They allow the use of the hosted full version of gitlab.com for free. But if you want to host that version yourself, you have to pay
