#qi-hardware IRC log for Sunday, 2012-07-22

wpwrakhmm. do we have any shortcut for things like http://projects.qi-hardware.com/index.php/p/eda-tools/source/tree/master/dsv ?04:53
wpwraksuch a monstrosity looks bad enough in normal life, but it gets even more ghastly when put on a slide04:54
wpwrakof course, google can figure it out from just eda-tools/dsv  ... hmm :)04:55
wpwrakwell, sort of. it doesn't guess the "master" and puts some commit hash instead04:56

whitequarkDocScrutinizer: may I ask you a few stupid questions in PM?20:31
DocScrutinizer05though I'm supposed to do some laundry20:33
DocScrutinizer05but meh20:33
DocScrutinizer05whitequark: ^^^^20:35
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: aha, thanks20:47
whitequarkI'll probably send as PMs, they're not very ontopic :)20:47
DocScrutinizer05go ahead20:47
DocScrutinizer05while I ponder whether I prefer to (hypothetically) work for jolla (http://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/2012/07/21/finlands-jolla-will-be-the-ferrari-of-the-smartphone-world/) or for google to build their 'glass'20:48
wpwrakDocScrutinizer: helsinki is nice in summer.21:53
wpwrakall 48 hours of it ;-)21:53
DocScrutinizer05I'm not sure jolla will reside in HEL21:54
wpwrakmaybe tampere then ? a very popular choice among finns21:55
wpwrakin tampere, i learned what the finns (supposedly) do when they need to get drunk in a hurry21:56
pangthrow alcohol on the sauna oven?21:57
pangand have some less sober and very good friends outside ready to drag people out21:57
pangmore sober*21:58
wpwrakpang: sounds like a good approach. of course, a good friend would be neither sober nor ourside.22:00
wpwrakpang: the one i heard works like this: you take a tampon, soak it in strong alcohol. then insert it rectally. apparently, this produces a faster absorption into the bloodstream than normal ingestion22:03
whitequarkyeah, our teacher on physiology course told us about that way22:03
pangthat is called "tampongfest" here, and was popular in some circles back in the 80s and 90s22:04
whitequark(works with other mucous membranes too, obviously.)22:04
whitequark(and has disastrous consequences for girls.)22:04
pangthere's even a crappy song about it.. called "tampongfest"22:04
whitequarkalso, this does not produce the alcohol smell and allows for using much smaller amounts.22:05
wpwrakwhitequark: i see that your teacher must have dedicated an entire lesson on it ;-)22:07
wpwrakthey never taught us this kind of useful stuff22:07
whitequarkwpwrak: naw, just a few minutes :) but he did dedicate almost a lesson to general alcohol effects on CNS22:07
whitequarkand for other drugs too22:07
whitequarkalso, neuropoisons22:07
whitequarkthey're commonly used in research22:08
whitequarkso I guess I'm quite a dangerous person now22:08
whitequarkwpwrak: (faster absorption) less for "get drunk in a hurry", more like "get drunk less noticeably".22:10
whitequarkyou're kind of increasing efficiency of injecting alcohol in organism in respect to the amount actually used for getting your brain intoxicated22:12
whitequarkand as lesser amounts get metabolized, you get lesser amounts of byproducts and side effects22:13
whitequarkOTOH, it's _way_ easier to get a lethal amount this way, not to mention the irritation and other obvious local effects.22:13
whitequark(... what the fuck I'm talking about?..)22:14
wpwrakDocScrutinizer: your .fi survival guide is coming along nicely :)22:15
lindi-wpwrak: are you in .fi?22:56
kristianpaulfly rc planes with put aid is such a stressing, but you noticed how small hardware details take you to a crash :-|23:14
kristianpauland after crashes, when something trigger next failure :-\23:17
kristianpaulall for a 4 minutes fly :)23:17
