[10:18] <edmoore> natrium42: re the innapropriacy of peg 1 launch

[10:23] <jcoxon> edmoore,

[10:23] <edmoore> sorry
[10:23] <jcoxon> hehe
[10:23] <jcoxon> oops
[10:23] <edmoore> I am not here
[10:23] <jcoxon> oh well
[10:23] <edmoore> it's like that 'smack the pony' sketch
[10:24] <jcoxon> don't remember that one
[10:24] <edmoore> where the lady goes up to a guy on the bike looking lost and says 'do you speak english?' to which he replies 'no, afriad not'. "really?" , "sorry mate, not a word"
[10:24] <jcoxon> hehe
[10:24] <edmoore> aaanyway
[10:24] <edmoore> what can i do you for
[10:25] <jcoxon> so
[10:25] <edmoore> I am mentally prepping myself with EARS excitement
[10:25] <edmoore> it is a glorious day
[10:25] <jcoxon> if i was going mad with the fact that my laptop cuts out every so often
[10:25] <edmoore> I like where this is going
[10:25] <jcoxon> and was planning a trip to regents street
[10:26] <edmoore> Oh James! :D
[10:26] <edmoore> black or white?
[10:27] <jcoxon> hmmmho
[10:28] <jcoxon> can you get a student discount at the shop?
[10:29] <edmoore> The black one can tend to pick up marks slightly
[10:29] <edmoore> I'm not sure
[10:29] <edmoore> I'd have thought so
[10:29] <edmoore> might be worth calling ahead
[10:29] <edmoore> also, if you feel like splurging, I impulse bought (bad idea, revision making me go crazY0 one of the new aluminium external keyboards yesterday
[10:29] <edmoore> and it really is gorgeous
[10:30] <edmoore> oh I told you all this
[10:30] <edmoore> whoops
[10:30] <edmoore> I did 4000 words last night of project after a few drinks but my fingers really didn't hurt at all. This is much nicer for working at than the previous one
[10:34] <jcoxon> ooooo i don't know if i can do it
[10:36] <jcoxon> damn i left my student card down in canterbury
[10:37] <edmoore> next time you come to cam then!
[10:37] <jcoxon> i have my cambridge one
[10:37] <jcoxon> but i'm not sure that'll count
[10:37] <edmoore> oh holy shit, i didn't enquire yesterday about student discount
[10:37] <jcoxon> if they followed it up
[10:37] <edmoore> aaaaaargh
[10:40] <edmoore> could have saved £3
[10:40] <edmoore> the price of a beer
[10:40] <edmoore> damn and blast

[20:18] <edmoore> hi jcoxon
[20:18] <edmoore> sorry was distracted earlier
[20:18] <edmoore> so what's up?
[20:18] <edmoore> did you migrate across from the ibook or start afresh?
[20:19] <jcoxon> started afresh
[20:19] <jcoxon> am copy stuff over directly
[20:20] <jcoxon> copying*
[20:20] <edmoore> cool
[20:20] <jcoxon> though its over wireless, a cable might have been quicker
[20:20] <edmoore> well, quicksilver will change the world
[20:22] <jcoxon> hmmmmm, i'm pretty set in my ways
[20:25] <jcoxon> hmmmm 2 cores seems quite a waste
[20:25] <jcoxon> does anything really take advantage of them?
[20:25] <edmoore> you see, now you don't have a stone-age computer, you can have several programs open at a time
[20:26] <edmoore> without a performance degredation
[20:26] <jcoxon> haha
[20:26] <jcoxon> i still love my G4
[20:26] <edmoore> so currently the youtube video that I am converting from flv to mp4 for my ipod is taking up an entire core
[20:26] <natrium42> mbp doesn't have delete key :/
[20:27] <edmoore> which the other core is letting me bibble around as usual
[20:27] <edmoore> right, bbl
[20:30] <jcoxon> hmmho, i think i'm going to have to wait for a while till i change the colour of the apple on the top of the laptop as it'll void my warrenty
[20:31] <Laurenceb> pink
[20:31] <Laurenceb> or maybe the old school rainbow colours
[20:32] <jcoxon> i was going for red
[20:32] <jcoxon> as my old laptop has green
[20:33] <Laurenceb> it uses the pcd backlight right?
[20:33] <Laurenceb> *lcd
[20:34] <Laurenceb> I was going to suggest RGB leds and a uC to change the colour with PWM
[20:34] <jcoxon> haha, yeah it use the backlight
[20:34] <Laurenceb> do the old rainbow colours, that would be so cool
[20:35] <Laurenceb> or... a coloured windows logo in the middle
[20:36] <Laurenceb> sorry thats evil:P
