02:33 <DrJoeTron> I'm still on 5.1
02:33 <DrJoeTron> www.oldversion.com
02:33 <kamp> i have no idea what they do at AOL
02:33 <DrJoeTron> I know what they do
02:34 <DrJoeTron> they get bought out by other companies because no one ses dial up anymore
02:34 <kamp> it's like executives make and push the deadlines around, regardless of whether they actually have a product or not
02:34 <kamp> "let's release a new AIM"
02:34 <kamp> "ok, we'll get working on it"
02:34 <kamp> "NO, just put something nice together"
02:34 <DrJoeTron> my version of aim is altered
02:34 <kamp> "should it work?"

02:35 <DrJoeTron> google talk is still my favorite
02:35 <DrJoeTron> the standalone
02:35 <kamp> it was great though, good idea and all, but they stopped developing it
02:35 <ghableska> it doesn't have the moving emoticons though
02:35 <DrJoeTron> I hate skype
02:35 <ghableska> google talk that is
02:36 <kamp> google talk creeps me out
02:36 <kamp> i log in to google talk and it immediately tells me about my email, and the last things i searched, and the last things i ate, and everything else i've done in the past week
02:36 <kamp> google talk is very creepy

07:26 <mkzelda> :/ kicked autmatically for being idle from CTF
07:26 <mkzelda> while playing
07:26 <mkzelda> banned for 35 mins for being kicked too often
07:26 <Lucifer_arma> A flowerpot falls from a ledge.  A person coincidentally holding a stopwatch notices it takes 0.9 s for the pot to fall past his window, which is 18 m high.
07:26 <Lucifer_arma> g = 9.81 m/s^2
07:27 <Lucifer_arma> How far above the top of the window is the ledge from which the pot fell?
07:28 <mkzelda> Reword the .9 to fall past his window...
07:28 <Lucifer_arma> reword it how?
07:28 <mkzelda> thats the time it took to fall from where to where?
07:29 <Lucifer_arma> beats me.
07:29 <Lucifer_arma> I copied it straight up because I'm confused.  :)
07:29 <mkzelda> heh
07:29 <Lucifer_arma> I took it as 0.9 seconds to fall from the ledge to a point 18 m above ground
07:29 <mkzelda> i dont know if he's watching it from the time it falls off the ledge, to his window, or his window to the ground, or just top of the window to the bottom of the window
07:30 <Lucifer_arma> I suspect top of window to bottom of window, but 18 meters is a freaking tall window
07:30 <mkzelda> ya, but they exist
07:30 <mkzelda> about as likely as this guy w/ the stopwatch :D
07:30 <mkzelda> who happened to be watching a spontaneous flowerpot drop
07:30 <mkzelda> and clocking it simultaneously
07:31 <Lucifer_arma> it only fell 3.97305 meters in 0.9 seconds though
07:31 <mkzelda> i think he's in on it
07:31 <mkzelda> isnt there an initial amount of time/dist it takes to get to freefall?
07:31 <Lucifer_arma> height of the window isn't given
07:32 <Lucifer_arma> nah, freefall just means you're only suffering gravity
07:35 <spidey_> hm
07:35 <spidey_> #g 7.56 GB / 100 kb/s

14:03 <spidey> #g 800 / 160
14:03 <armabot> spidey: 800 / 160 = 5
14:03 <Lucifer_arma> did some other problems in the homework, etc
14:04 <z-man-work> This education program sucks.
14:05 <z-man-work> Can you paste the whole text of the task? I checked my numbers (going the other way), and they seem to be correct for my interpretation.
14:05 <z-man-work> # g sqrt(2)
14:05 <armabot> z-man-work: sqrt(2) = 1.41421356
14:06 <z-man-work> #g sqrt(12.0125 * 2/10)
14:06 <armabot> z-man-work: sqrt((12.0125 * 2) / 10) = 1.55
14:06 <z-man-work> that's the time the pot takes from the ledge to the top of the window if the ledge is 12.0125 meters above it.
14:07 <z-man-work> #g 10 * .5 * (1.55 + .9)^2
14:07 <armabot> z-man-work: 10 * .5 * ((1.55 + .9)^2) = 30.0125
14:07 <spidey> #g 40% of 40
14:07 <armabot> spidey: 40% of 40 = 16
14:07 <z-man-work> that's the total distance of free fall after 1.55 + .9 seconds, so the bottom of the window is in this distance from the ledge.
14:08 <z-man-work> makes the window height:
14:08 <z-man-work> #g 30.0125 - 12.0125
14:08 <armabot> z-man-work: 30.0125 - 12.0125 = 18
14:09 <z-man-work> Ok, I could have done that without #g :)
14:09 <z-man-work> So it boils down to this: the interpretation of the task must be wrong.
14:10 <spidey> #g 25000 * 9%
14:10 <armabot> spidey: 25,000 * (9%) = 2,250
14:11 <z-man-work> Dimensional analysis (the art of making up answers just by looking at meaningful ways to combine stuff) fails here, too. You can make any lenght out of a given time, acceleration and lenght.
14:15 <z-man-work> The USA flag is not the default flag on the forums, right? The default is no flag?
14:16 <spidey> # 90% if $625
14:16 <spidey> #g 90% if $625
14:16 <z-man-work> I ask because I feel a bit bad for being rude to that last }LC} guy and wondering whether maybe he's not a native speaker.
14:16 <armabot> spidey: Google's calculator didn't come up with anything.
14:16 <spidey> #g 90% of $625
14:16 <armabot> spidey: 90% of (US$ 625) = 562.5 U.S. dollars
14:17 <guru3> z-man-work: i think it's no flag
14:17 <spidey> #g 15% of 1420
14:17 <armabot> spidey: 15% of 1,420 = 213
14:17 <spidey> now i can go back to sleep :|
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> \centerline{{\bf 045} (part 1 of 1) 10 points}
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> A flowerpot falls from the ledge of an apartment building. A
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> person in an apartment below, coincidentally holding a stopwatch,
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> notices that it takes ${\ifmmode 0.9\else $0.9$\fi}\units{s }$ for the pot to fall past his window,
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> which is ${\ifmmode 18\else $18$\fi}\units{m }$ high.
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> The acceleration of gravity is ${\ifmmode 9.81\else $9.81$\fi}\units{m/s^2 }\,.$
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> How far above the top of the window is the ledge from which the
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> pot fell?
14:18 <Lucifer_arma> Answer in units of \units{m }.
14:19 <guru3> that's a little hard to read
14:21 <Lucifer_arma> Upon re-reading it for like the 40th time, I think the window really is 18m high
14:21 <guru3> the window with the guy and the stopwatch is 18m up
14:21 <guru3> the ledge is above it
14:21 <guru3> at the moment the pot goes past the guys window 18m up
14:21 <guru3> it is going speed u
14:21 <guru3> it hits the ground .9 s later
14:21 <Lucifer_arma> right, and the flower pot takes 0.9 seconds to fall from the top of the window to the bottom
14:22 <guru3> s = (u+v)t/2
14:22 <guru3> mmm no
14:22 <guru3> that formula's no good
14:22 <Lucifer_arma> should be t^2, right
14:22 <Lucifer_arma> ?
14:22 <guru3> there's more than one formula for s
14:22 <Lucifer_arma> er, no, nvm.  :)
14:22 <guru3> suvta
14:23 <guru3> give me a minute
14:23 <guru3> you need to find u and v i think
14:23 <guru3> s = ut + .5at^2
14:26 <guru3> so when the guy started the stopwatch it was going 15m/s 
14:26 <Lucifer_arma> er, I'm getting 24.4145 m/s there
14:26 <guru3> so it fell for 1.58s before that
14:27 <guru3> it's 15 ish
14:27 <guru3> 18 = .9u + .5*9.81*.9^2
14:27 <Lucifer_arma> s = 18, t = 0.9, right?
14:27 <guru3> yeah
14:28 <Lucifer_arma> hmmm, I'm making 9.81 negative
14:28 <guru3> as long as you define one direction as positive it's fine
14:28 <guru3> i'm defining down as positive
14:28 <guru3> as it's a lot easier to deal with
14:30 <guru3> and so the ledge the pot fell off of was ~12 above the guy with the stopwatch
14:30 <guru3> *12m
14:30 <Lucifer_arma> ok, how are you getting to 12 m?  :)
14:31 <Lucifer_arma> er, hang on, I used the wrong formula myself
14:31 <guru3> well after you know the 1.58s it was falling before
14:31 <guru3> you can use s = (u+v)t/2
14:32 <guru3> s = 15.5855/2 * 1.5887
14:32 <guru3> v being the velocity it was falling at when the guy started the stop watch, u from the last section of the problem
14:32 <guru3> and t being the time taken to accelerate from 0ms^-1 to 15.5885
14:32 <guru3> ms^-1
14:33 <guru3> wasn't z-man mentioning 12m before too?
14:33 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, his was .3 off from yours though
14:33 <guru3> yeah not sure what that is
14:33 <Lucifer_arma> at least, if I computed your right :)
14:34 <Lucifer_arma> well then, yours is right
14:34 <guru3> it is?
14:34 <Lucifer_arma>     * correct answer: 12.3806
14:34 <Lucifer_arma>     * Tolerance: plus or minus 1 percent.
14:34 <Lucifer_arma>     * min acceptable answer: 12.2568
14:34 <Lucifer_arma>     * max acceptable answer: 12.5044
14:34 <guru3> whoa fubar
14:34 <guru3> go me
14:35 <Lucifer_arma> ok, so it's obvious why if I make g negative I get a much higher answer, at least, in the algebra it is
14:35 <Lucifer_arma> where are you placing your origin?  I think that's where I'm screwing up, my origin is a bit ambiguous
14:36 <guru3> http://electricpotential.net/temp/luciferanswer.png
14:36 <guru3> that's just the math
14:36 <guru3> hmm origin
14:38 <guru3> well for finding out the initial velocity (15.5885m/s)
14:38 <guru3> i take the window with the stopwatch to be 0
14:38 <guru3> at point 0 time 0 the pot was already falling so and so fast (u)
14:39 <guru3> (u -> initial velocity)
14:39 <guru3> 18 m later and .9s later
14:39 <guru3> or really in .9s it travelled 18m
14:39 <Lucifer_arma> so your origin is the top of the window
14:39 <Lucifer_arma> which is where I should have put my origin.  :)  Since I was taking a negative g, I needed to make the distance negative too
14:39 <Lucifer_arma> ok, thanks.  :)
14:40 <guru3> ok then :)
14:40 <guru3> haven't done a problem like this in ages
14:40 <guru3> now what was z-man trying to do tho...
14:41 <guru3> z-man got it right
14:41 <guru3> 10:01:34 < z-man-work> I get 12.38062233690112130479 for g=9.81
14:43 <guru3> but how he explained it was way complicated imo ><
14:44 <Lucifer_arma> ?
14:44 <guru3> his whole s(t1) = s(t2) thing
14:44 <Lucifer_arma> er, he did get it right
14:45 <Lucifer_arma> I took the wrong number from his explanation and tested it :(
14:45 <guru3> 07:38:04 < z-man> So the set of equations to solve is: s(t2) = s(t1) + 18m AND t2 = t1 + .9s.
14:45 <guru3> z-man went and did a highschool level problem with phd theory i think :/
14:46 <Lucifer_arma> heh
14:46 <Lucifer_arma> how he did it is probably near how I should be thinking about it, it's the first calculus-based physics class in the sequence
14:47  * guru3 whistles a tune
14:48 <guru3> hmm z-man takes a weird point to be zero with his s function
14:48 <Lucifer_arma> doesn't he take the ledge?
14:49 <guru3> not sure hold on
14:49 <z-man-work> I take the ledge ;)
14:49 <guru3> the thing is if the ledge was 0
14:49 <guru3> t1 would and s1 would be 0
14:51 <guru3> but if the ground was 0
14:51 <guru3> t1 would be .9s 18m up in the air
14:51 <guru3> and t2 would be later on further in the air
14:51 <guru3> we've got a flying pot x)
14:51 <Lucifer_arma> and someone with the amazing reflexes to start a stopwatch when it passes the top of the window
14:52 <guru3> yeah
14:52 <guru3> that's right, z-man got ~40m for his answer before
14:52 <guru3> *30
14:53 <guru3> from a technical standpoint it makes sense
14:53 <guru3> but if you were going to describe the event how it actually occurred
14:53 <guru3> it's well confusing that way

18:33 <wrtlprnft> umm
18:33 <wrtlprnft> hi
18:33 <wrtlprnft> hi
18:50 <epsy> to change font in arma...i simply need to replace the original font, right?
18:52 <epsy> ?
18:52 <wrtlprnft> umm, you don't have to :)
18:52 <wrtlprnft> just put your new font in ~/.armagetronad/textures/ (create if needed) and say FONT_FILE <filename>
18:53 <wrtlprnft> where <filename> is relative to ~/.armagetronad/textures/
18:55 <epsy> shouldn't be putt in resource repo?
18:55 <luke-jr_work> no
18:55 <luke-jr_work> fonts aren't resources yet
18:55 <epsy> that would be more logical
18:56 <luke-jr_work> eventaully
18:56 <luke-jr_work> before the next stable release
18:57 <luke-jr_work> note fonts need special treatment, as we want to allow the user to use system fonts too
18:57 <luke-jr_work> and they're binary files, which resources aren't quite designed to handle
18:58 <luke-jr_work> not to mention font copyrights
18:59 <wrtlprnft> resources WILL need to handle binary files sooner or later
18:59 <wrtlprnft> there's plenty of good Free fonts
18:59 <luke-jr_work> yep
18:59 <luke-jr_work> like I said, we need it before the next stable release :p
18:59 <wrtlprnft> the deja_vu series, our font, linux libertine, etc
19:02 <z-man-work> Luke's link: Depending on whether you follow the Copenhagen or many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, things then either get weird or very weird.
19:02 <z-man-work> hah, that's true :)

23:44 <spidey> DrJoeTron, you just missed the most awesome game of defcon ever
23:45 <DrJoeTron> I was playing the most hilarious game of virtual laguna beach
23:45 <ghableska> come again?
23:45 <DrJoeTron> a bunch of goons and I played virtual laguna beach
23:45 <DrJoeTron> we went around and pranked people
23:46 <spidey> ..
23:46 <DrJoeTron> the first thing we did was I suggested that we would pretend that we were sick children who just got laptops donated from the Wish the Dream Foundation
23:46 <DrJoeTron> and our nurse was playing with us.
23:47 <spidey> using all your silos simultaneously leaves you open for a counterstroke
23:47 <spidey> haha!
23:47 <DrJoeTron> and he would corner people, and ask if they would be willing to talk to a couple children
23:47 <DrJoeTron> and then we convinced people that we were famous models and that we were looking for talent
23:48 <ghableska> O_o
23:48 <DrJoeTron> our antics MIGHT make it to the front page of something awful
23:48 <ghableska> yay?
23:49 <DrJoeTron> hell yeah yay :)
23:50 <DrJoeTron> we've got tons of screen shots
23:50 <ghableska> heh
23:52 <spidey> DrJoeTron, defcon tonight?
23:52 <ghableska> DrJoeTron: counter-strike tonight?
23:52 <spidey> stfu
23:52 <DrJoeTron> possibly to both
23:52 <DrJoeTron> I dont have a headset anymore :(
23:53 <spidey> use speakers
23:53 <spidey> like normal people
23:53 <ghableska> aww
23:53 <DrJoeTron> fuck that
23:53 <ghableska> no more yelling random things?
23:53 <DrJoeTron> not for a few more days :(
23:54 <DrJoeTron> I'm more in the mood for messing with people
23:54 <DrJoeTron> so I might be playing laguna beach again :)
23:54 <spidey> ...
23:54 <DrJoeTron> they ban homosexuality on the game :O
23:55 <ghableska> o_O
23:55 <DrJoeTron> yeah heres the game
23:55 <DrJoeTron> you walk around
