    Wol Euler was guardian for this session.


    Wol Euler: good morning, yaku
    Wol Euler: I slept through the alarm :(
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning wol
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, i guessed so :)
    Wol Euler sighs.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: at least you seem to have slept well :)
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Wol Euler: yes thanks
    Wol Euler: I was having a marvellous dream
    Wol Euler: about the place I used to work in England, and driving around the countryside
    Wol Euler: thank you for covering for me
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, nothing happend
    Wol Euler: what's your plan for today?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don't have that many, right now i am experimenting with that ppjoy tool and with that headtracking application
    Wol Euler: sounds like fun
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, i wonder how to make sl a bit more augmented
    Wol Euler listens.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, actually i wonder a bit about the availible technologie today, software, licences patents
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i can't program but i often wonder what would be availible if everything would be really open
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and programmed with low level languages isntead of like java or other interpreter languages which became so popular and systempowereating
    Wol Euler nods.
    Wol Euler: if you read about the early days of computing, they made amazing things in tiny amounts of memory and processing power
    Wol Euler: the first flight simulator was written for a computer that had a total of 16k of memory
    Wol Euler: the logo on the eBay webpage is 16k
    Wol Euler: that's amazing
    Wol Euler: boxy
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey alfred
    Alfred Kelberry: woly girl :)
    Alfred Kelberry: yaku boy :)
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Alfred Kelberry: good to see you two
    Alfred Kelberry: continuation
    Alfred Kelberry: yaku?
    Alfred Kelberry: is my shape ok?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ur ruth doggy
    Alfred Kelberry: what client do you use?
    Alfred Kelberry: i'll take my client rendering as a canonical one :)
    Wol Euler laughs.
    Alfred Kelberry: can you see what client he's using, woly?
    Wol Euler: phoenix but I don't know which version
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, we need a v2-er
    Wol Euler: touching yourself?
    Wol Euler: that makes you go blind :-P
    Wol Euler: what horrible things parents say to children, when you think of it.
    Wol Euler: "don't suck your thumbs or a man with scissors will come and cut it off"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Hehe :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Well that's very famous in germany, of course :)
    Wol Euler: yeah, england too
    Yakuzza Lethecus: I wonder if it's also famous in the usa.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Or do they just have similar stories not based on this book ?
    Wol Euler: it probably comes from that source, but I didn't know the name before moving to Germany so I guess we learned a "localized" version :)
    Alfred Kelberry: that's horrible indeed :)
    Wol Euler: I don't think my parents told us tales like that, they just asked us not to do [whatever]
    Alfred Kelberry: all i remember are references to devil from my grandma
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thinking of the devil, i read a few weeks ago that in the 80th the russians were supposed to drilled into the hell :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: in their deep ultra deep drilling project at the karelia peninsula
    Wol Euler chuckles.
    Alfred Kelberry: that'd be neat
    Alfred Kelberry: i read there's a new expedition in preparation to mariana trench
    Wol Euler: wow
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm looking forward to it :)
    Wol Euler: manned expedition?
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, newly built vessels
    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, kola peninsula
    Wol Euler: "If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth at 8,848 metres (29,029 ft), were set in the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, there would be 2,076 metres (6,811 ft) of water left above it."
    Alfred Kelberry: pretty much so :)
    Alfred Kelberry: geologists say there are possibly deeper trenches somewhere
    Alfred Kelberry: we like to think that most of the sea bed is mapped, but it's not. only the main sea routes.
    Alfred Kelberry: found the expedition article: http://www.sportextreme.com/blog/201...ea-expedition/
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, we need google sea view submarines then :P
    Wol Euler: Branson. Perhaps he'll sell seats
    Alfred Kelberry: i respect people who go on exploring the ocean instead of collecting cars
    Yakuzza Lethecus: Well, i also like the concept for the Space elevator with nanotube cables :P
    Wol Euler: oh, agreed. even if he is driven by a mad raving ego, it would still (probably) be of some benefit ti science
    Alfred Kelberry: yaku, yes, that's been around for a long time
    Alfred Kelberry: *nods to woly girl*
    Yakuzza Lethecus: maybe a space elevator with low risk transportation would also be a good way to get rid of radioactive waste :P
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or since we already drilled into hell we could just dispose it there :P
    Yakuzza Lethecus: - AAAHHH!! BURN IT!! SEND IT TO HELL!!! -
    Wol Euler: the only good solution to radioactive waste is not to create it :-/
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, woly
    Alfred Kelberry: btw, what was his given the sir title for?
    Wol Euler: no idea
    Wol Euler: being a friend of Charles, perhaps
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i have a nice picture of the mariana trench showing its scale...
    Wol Euler: Branson was knighted in 1999 for "services to entrepreneurship" <- in ohter words, he got a gong for getting rich :-/
    Alfred Kelberry: it described the depth zones
    Wol Euler: shhhh
    Wol Euler: well, we seem to have exhausted that discussion
    Wol Euler: I think I'll go get dressed and have breakfast
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you didn't
    Wol Euler: not yet, came directly from bed to PaB
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care, get better and cya soonn
    Wol Euler: enjoy the weekend
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye boxy
