20:58 < mareklug> Soapy so there were two great Indian chiefs who fought on the side of the British in the 1812 war, Tecumseh of central Indiana and Black Hawk of essentially rock Island, Quad Cities Illinois/Iowa border on the Mississippii
20:59 < mareklug> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Hawk_State_Historic_Site
21:00 < Soapy> did they really think the British were their friends?
21:00 < mareklug> well, they knew the Long Knives (the US Army) were not, and all the settlers streaming in.
21:02 < Soapy> oh thats right
21:02 < Soapy> Britain still had Canada then
21:02 < Soapy> so it was a serious military presence
21:02 < Soapy> if the British somehow won the War of 1812, they probably would have given some US land to Canada
21:02 < TeeTylerToe> it was probably tribal rivalries between the indians
21:03 < harej> some? try all
21:03 < TeeTylerToe> the enemy of their enemy was their friend
21:03 -!- coyoteTCC [~manituXIO@74-115-1-230.anchorfree.com] has joined #wikipedia-en
21:03 < Soapy> well I dont think Britain seriously considered taking over the USA
21:04 < Jasper_Deng> or did they?
21:04 < TeeTylerToe> like india or something
21:04 < Jasper_Deng> They burned the white house
21:04 < Soapy> they would never have been able to do that

21:05 < coyoteTCC> l
21:05 < coyoteTCC> hola coma estas
21:07 < Soapy> I think Britain viewed the USA in those days the way the US viewed Vietnam in 1970
21:08 < mareklug> yeah.  had the British won we would be on the metric system already and have health insurance for all.  And very crummy road system.
21:08 < Soapy> worth fighting over, but not worth wasting the whole British army on when there were other countries to fight
21:08 < Soapy> so even if Britain could have fought to the death and won, it wasnt worth it because then they would be easy prey in Europe
21:08 < Soapy> the same thing in 1776
21:08 -!- Ironholds is now known as IH|away
21:09 < Soapy> it wasnt like America was ready to come on over and occupy the UK
21:09 < coyoteTCC> yes, 33 and what not. lol

21:10 < SigmaWP> Soapy: yes
21:10 < mareklug> he invaded Russia in 1812.  Had he not done that, he would have defeated teh British
21:10 < Soapy> hmm

21:15 < coyoteTCC> he was good men
21:15 < BlastHardcheese> I admire Groucho Marx
21:16 < SigmaWP> I think Hungary had the highest support for socialism
21:16 < SigmaWP> and Poland the least
21:16 < mareklug> Hungary had the 1956 revolution which was very bloody and was suppressed with Russian army

22:46 < bazinga> Actually, mareklug, I moved.
22:46 < mareklug> you can't lay the outrageous outrages perpetrated by local prairie merchants at the feet of Apple.
22:47 < mareklug> so you moved to a city with a real Apple Store?  ppl running around in dark blue t-shirts?

22:48 < bazinga> I went to the Vancouver apple store
22:48 < mareklug> TeeTylerToe gee, I hear Google invented it as well
22:48 < Jasper_Deng> well, Andrew Carnegie didn't invent vertical integration either
22:48 < mareklug> bazinga so what were the specs and the price of this iMac?
22:48 < TeeTylerToe> But SURELY apple is the devil!  No other company would do bad things like dodge taxes!  Not General Electric, or Dell, or Lenovo
22:48 < TeeTylerToe> I'm sure Lenovo makes all it's computers in the US
22:49 < mareklug> of course they do.  they bought that business from IBM, and everyone knows IBM is a TJ Watson Laboratory in New York
22:49 < Jasper_Deng> eh, Lenovo is Chinese, so they can make it in China and it wouldn't be outsourcing, would it?
22:49 < TeeTylerToe> And dell wouldn't charge customers $200 for a hdd upgrade to a hdd that only costs $70.  They're a good american company
22:49 < mareklug> Dell is actually owned and entirely run by wiley Indians.

22:52 < wctaiwan> such a lovely thing to walk into.
22:52 < bazinga> Heeey wctaiwan

22:53 < bazinga> Brb gotta get a hit of crystal

22:53 < mareklug> they use DVI

22:56 < wctaiwan> of course I can fault apple for not doing incremental udpates properly
22:56 < mareklug> wctaiwan it was not 149 MB for me, and in any case, it was already downloaded when it told me the update was up and read to be installed.  change your software update defaults and it will download it when you are not looking.
22:56 < wctaiwan> I'll look into that
22:56 < bazinga> Apple and Sony have crappy updates afaik
22:57 < TeeTylerToe> Can I fault Microsoft for making me reboot about a billion times every other day?
22:57 < bazinga> Nothing about content

22:57 < bazinga> But just the way they're deployed
22:57 < Jasper_Deng> TeeTylerToe: kinda, they took out that setting in Windows 7
22:57 < Dcoetzee> By far the most offensive thing Microsoft does is to force reboots for critical security updates
22:57 < Jasper_Deng> and you have to mod the registry to stop it.

22:59 < bazinga> I developed my tastes by using a variety of products
22:59 < Dcoetzee> And additionally, I rarely booted into OS X
22:59 < Dcoetzee> So I didn't get the full experience

23:36 < Dcoetzee> I've done it a million times
23:36 < Jasper_Deng> Dcoetzee: but you need a separate license for it
23:36 < TeeTylerToe> not from the restore disk 99% of windows users get
23:36 < Jasper_Deng> or you have a Technet subscription
23:37 < Jasper_Deng> anyways, Windows Server Datacenter allows unlimited virtualization
23:37 < Jasper_Deng> the newest Windows Server 2012 R2 will allow activation in Hyper-V automatically w/o any product key hassles.
23:37 < Dcoetzee> TeeTylerToe: That is true, with just the OEM restore disk you have to choose between installing Windows on your host or your guest
23:37 < TeeTylerToe> I'm sure a lot of home users have windows server datacenter pro r3 sp1.5
23:37 < Dcoetzee> It's only one license
23:37 < TeeTylerToe> '14
23:37 < SuicidalZerg> Dcoetzee: 2 licenses? Really?
23:37 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng whereas on the Mac I paid for Mountain LIon under my Apple ID exactly once (was it 19.99? I think so) and I replicated it on 2 machines in my household and several external drives.  Each time all I need to do is downlaod it again for free from Apple Store (or if I hung around to the download, restart the installer from disk).  No keys, no nothing.
23:37 < SuicidalZerg> You can't use both at the same time, right?
23:37 < Jasper_Deng> SuicidalZerg: no
23:38 < TeeTylerToe> windows also cures restless leg syndrome
23:38 < Dcoetzee> SuicidalZerg: Yeah if you buy retail Win7 it comes with two licenses
23:38 < Jasper_Deng> mareklug: you still paid too much for the hardware
23:38 < Dcoetzee> One for 32 bit and one for 64 bit
23:38 < Jasper_Deng> Dcoetzee: really?
23:38 < Dcoetzee> Yep
23:38 < Dcoetzee> I've taken advantage of that several times
23:38 < Jasper_Deng> I got a retail copy of Windows 7 Pro
23:38 < SuicidalZerg> But you can't use both at the same time, right?
23:38 < Dcoetzee> Yes you can use both at the same time
23:38 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng I paid around 3k for the best mac I could build custom in early 2009.  I am still using it and it is not a slow machine, obviously.
23:38 < SuicidalZerg> wat
23:38 < Dcoetzee> They might have changed licensing terms
23:38 < Dcoetzee> But that's how it was 2 years ago
23:39 < Jasper_Deng> mareklug: another thing. Custom and Mac don't fit into the same sentence except negative.
23:39 < SuicidalZerg> Too bad I have no use for 32-bit :p
23:39 < Jasper_Deng> Dcoetzee: that also was 2 years ago.
23:39 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng are you nuts?
23:39 < Jasper_Deng> anyone who wants to be custom builds his/her own
23:39 < Jasper_Deng> PC
23:39 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng Apple has build to order options on iMacs since many years ago.
23:39 < Jasper_Deng> that doesn't count
23:39 < SuicidalZerg> I wish I could afford to build a custom PC, lol
23:39 < Dcoetzee> I think Win8 is a single license per retail copy. But it's not a big deal to me because I get Windows for free through MSDNAA. Also I get 90% discounts on retail copies through Microsoft alumni.
23:39 < SuicidalZerg> Instead of using this OEM nonsense that I got 5 years ago
23:40 < coyoteTCC> lol
23:40 < Jasper_Deng> mareklug: especially b/c Apple (last time I checked) charges like $400 for another 4 or 8 GB of RAM.
23:40 < SuicidalZerg> That's how I got my copy of Windows 7 was through MSDN :3
23:40 < Dcoetzee> Apple's outrageous charges for RAM are just them exploiting their hardware monopoly
23:40 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng who gives a fuck?  Buy your ram somewhere else.  Of all things to complain about.
23:40 < TeeTylerToe> Everyone charges just as much for add on ram Jasper_Deng
23:40 < Jasper_Deng> then that's not real custom selling, is it?
23:40 < Jasper_Deng> TeeTylerToe: no
23:41 < TeeTylerToe> you dhink dell or hp or lenovo don't?
23:41 < Dcoetzee> Oh right RAM is user upgradable
23:41 < Dcoetzee> I forgot about that
23:41 < TeeTylerToe> yes they do
23:41 < coyoteTCC> lol.. mareklug and jasper are the same person.. both clock screw times are the same for both
23:41 < Jasper_Deng> that money gets you at minimum 16 GB of extra RAM
23:41 -!- coyoteTCC [~manituXIO@74-115-1-230.anchorfree.com] has left #wikipedia-en ["Silentium est aureum"]
23:41 < Jasper_Deng> on a PC
23:41 < TeeTylerToe> how much?
23:41 < Jasper_Deng> 32 GB of RAM for the desktop PC costs only $140ish
23:42 < Jasper_Deng> and that's using 8 GB modules.
23:42 < Dcoetzee> Mac RAM is standard desktop RAM

23:42 < Dcoetzee> It costs the same as far as I know
23:42 < Jasper_Deng> well, nowadays it probably is
23:42 < Dcoetzee> You just have to upgrade it after purchase, not at time of purchase
23:42 < Jasper_Deng> it used to not be.
23:42 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng also, you are so full of shit:    16GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2X8GB [Add $200.00]      http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MD096LL/A?
23:42 < Dcoetzee> Same way if you buy a preassembled PC you have to upgrade RAM after

23:43 < Jasper_Deng> Dcoetzee: that's why I assemble my own.
23:43 < bazinga> Mareklug I got 16gb of the same type of ram for half the pricr
23:43 < Jasper_Deng> ^^
23:43 < Dcoetzee> Anyone who doesn't assemble their own desktop (who knows how to do so) is throwing money out the window
23:43 < Jasper_Deng> ^^
23:44 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng so anyway?  how much do two sticks of cheapest 8GB ram (1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM) cost these days on free market?  Made in China and all that.
23:44 < Dcoetzee> Also, standard OEM builds have awful specs
23:44 < bazinga> Dcoetzee it's not a bad idea to learn, either
23:44 < Dcoetzee> They emphasise clock speed over more important things like amount of RAM and disk speed
23:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee what if that person owns a company that assembles computers?
23:44 < Jasper_Deng> mareklug: I remember $140 for 4 sticks /from 9 months ago/
23:44 < Jasper_Deng> Dcoetzee: exactly.
23:44 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng I am not talking FOUR STICKS.
23:44 < bazinga> Jasper_Deng I doubt it tbh
23:44 < Jasper_Deng> mareklug: do the math

23:45 < Dcoetzee> OEM builds are designed to sell, not to actually perform well in practice.
23:45 < Dcoetzee> Which means lots of build numbers
23:45 < bazinga> Jasper_Deng why would the price increase

23:45 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee I never gotten why preasembled computers even existed
23:46 < ToAruShiroiNeko> you can just have a motherboard + cpu + ram and be done with it
23:46 < Dcoetzee> ToAruShiroiNeko: That's kind of like asking why preassembled cars exist
23:46 < bazinga> Mareklug I found 2x8GB for $100, you could probably do as low as $90 in the Us for DDR3-1600
23:46 < Dcoetzee> Lots of people don't know how to assemble one, and are scared to learn
23:46 < Jasper_Deng> bazinga: no way
23:46 < bazinga> Jasper_Deng?
23:46 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee I can't wield steel on steel
23:46  * Jasper_Deng is talking DDR3-1333
23:47 < ToAruShiroiNeko> also shipping costs of a non-assembled car is way too expensive
23:47 < mareklug> bazinga so?  that still means the Apple Store boutique is overcharging ONLY 2005
23:47 < mareklug> 200%
23:47 < Dcoetzee> Okay bad analogy
23:47 < Dcoetzee> That's like asking why premade cakes exist
23:47 < bazinga> Jasper_Deng well mareklug and I are talking about 1600
23:47 < Dcoetzee> Pretty much anyone can bake a cake or learn to bake a cake
23:47 < Dcoetzee> But not everyone wants to take the time, and some people are scared to learn
23:47 < Jasper_Deng> ^^
23:47 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee but cake-masters can influence the price
23:47 < ToAruShiroiNeko> *taste
23:48 < Jasper_Deng> ToAruShiroiNeko: In a few words - some people are just lazy.
23:48 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng the Apple store is there to sell machines to people who don't want to build their own.
23:48 < bazinga> Dcoetzee : I know a 16 year old that doesn't know how to make macaroni
23:48 < ToAruShiroiNeko> my point is we have "prety much everything on board" motherboads. only thing they need to create is a motherboard with integrated ram and cpu
23:48 < mareklug> bazinga most people overcook pasta as well as fish.
23:48 < Dcoetzee> ToAruShiroiNeko: The analogy is apt. There are some very good preassembled systems out there.
23:48 < Jasper_Deng> like the Raspberry Pi
23:48 < bazinga> Heh
23:48 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I am talking about grandma who wont be playing half life 2
23:49 < bazinga> When my friend and I were baked we made cocoa pancakes
23:49 < Jasper_Deng> PCs are also much more extensible than Macs
23:49 < Dcoetzee> For the average grandma they can get away with the equivalent of a supermarket cake
23:49 < Jasper_Deng> b/c you can choose a motherboard with a lot of expansion cards.
23:49 < Dcoetzee> But they still end up spending money on specs they don't need
23:49 < TeeTylerToe> I can't see to figure out how to build to order on dell, hp, or lenovo
23:49 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Big Macs are the cheapest PCs :p
23:49 < bazinga> Thinking the cocoa was hot chocolate powder
23:49 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Desktop-Memory-CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10/dp/B006EWUO22   121 dollars.  And that is Corsair, the cheapest, crappiest memory on the market.
23:49 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Jasper_Deng fair point I suppose
23:50 < Dcoetzee> mareklug: I for one do not enjoy random memory errors :-P
23:50 < bazinga> Mareklug check my reddit
23:50  * Jasper_Deng really doesn't care about RAM speed, and also doesn't like Amazon's lack of IPv6
23:50 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee do random memory errors happen randomly?
23:50 < mareklug> Dcoetzee my point.
23:50 < bazinga> I found some for 100 total
23:50 < Dcoetzee> ToAruShiroiNeko: Not really
23:50 < TeeTylerToe> an extra 4GB of ram on sony costs $80
23:50 < bazinga> Jasper_Deng stop with the ipv6 complaints
23:50 < mareklug> Dcoetzee obviously young bazinga does.
23:50 < Dcoetzee> They tend to occur in clusters
23:50 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee then random memory isnt as random as advertised! :p
23:50 < Shirik> lies
23:50 < Shirik> that's why they call it random access memory
23:50 < bazinga> Mareklug got good reviews
23:50 < Shirik> because randomly when you access it, it fails
23:50 < TeeTylerToe> RAM errors happen randomly, mostly gamma rays
23:51 < Dcoetzee> Good RAM fails due to gamma rays, bad RAM fails due to manufacturing defects
23:51 < Dcoetzee> Manufacturing defects tend to be physically localized
23:51 < mareklug> Hynix   Find http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Desktop-Memory-CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10/dp/B006EWUO22  in Hynix for 100 and then we will talk, ok?
23:51 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee I protect my ram from gamma rays :p
23:51 < Dcoetzee> ToAruShiroiNeko: You have 3 foot thick concrete walls? :-P
23:51 < Shirik> but do you protect it from delta rays?
23:52 < Jasper_Deng> You really can't protect from gamma rays w/o like a meter of lead
23:52 < BlastHardcheese> of course, I only let them transport it on american airlines
23:52 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee... no, I just have plastic foil around it! :p
23:52 < Dcoetzee> Fun fact I read recently: if an astronaut made it to Mars and back, they would be grounded indefinitely thereafter, due to reaching NASA's lifetime radiation exposure limit.
23:52 < Jasper_Deng> ToAruShiroiNeko: which only stops alpha radiation
23:52 < ToAruShiroiNeko> if it works for alpha radiation, I dont see why it cant for gamma!
23:53 < Jasper_Deng> ToAruShiroiNeko: maybe b/c you can use alpha particles to inflate a party balloon?
23:53 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Jasper_Deng I was making a funny :p
23:53 < Jasper_Deng> while gamma rays would kill you?
23:53  * Jasper_Deng is also making one
23:53 < Shirik> hey
23:53 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Jasper_Deng no gamma rays mutate people to hunkishness
23:53 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I am body building by exposing myself to gamma rays
23:53 < Shirik> mutants are people too
23:54 < mareklug> bazinga  Jasper_Deng   http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=16GB+%282x8GB%29+DDR3+1600+MHz+%28PC3+12800%29+
23:54  * Jasper_Deng yawns
23:54 < ToAruShiroiNeko> if one willingly exposes themselves to gamma radiation does that make them an exhibitionist?
23:54 < Jasper_Deng> (both literally and figuratively)
23:54 < mareklug> it is obvious the cheapest memory is Corsair.  The more expensive memory is Kingston or Crucial
23:54 < mareklug> either way, we are talking from 116 to 150
23:54 < Jasper_Deng> mareklug: go on Newegg
23:54 < Jasper_Deng> you'd be mistaken easily
23:54 < mareklug> so the 200 that Apple Store charges for Hynix or Samsung is not outrageous.
23:54  * Jasper_Deng knows a couple of cheaper brands
23:55 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Dcoetzee I think the mars bound astronautes will be given a special space craft
23:55 < ToAruShiroiNeko> not the orion module

23:55 < TeeTylerToe> I couldn't get a price from dell, hp, or lenovo, but Sony charges $80 for an extra 4GB of ram which is crazy
23:55 < Jasper_Deng> mareklug: remember that $200 is not all you're really paying for that RAM
23:55 < Dcoetzee> ToAruShiroiNeko: Relevant video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI7q6DF6D54
23:55 < Jasper_Deng> b/c it's an upgrade from RAM you're already paying for.
23:55 < TeeTylerToe> and dell hp and lenovo charge similarly crazy prices
23:55 < mareklug> Jasper_Deng it is 2 more sticks for the 2 you already get as priced with the machine
23:56 < mareklug> and you get it under Apple warranty
23:56 < Jasper_Deng> oh, so that explains why it's priced a lot.

23:59 < ToAruShiroiNeko> few people with the last name Jobs could start a company like apple
