kyakgmenu2x seems to get lots of development recently..05:35
mthyes, me and Nebuleon are doing some cleanups that were way overdue05:38
mthDocScrutinizer05: and yes, that's not a real name05:39
kyakgoogle says Nebulon is a fictional character in the Marvel Universe :)05:41
kyakNebuleon then is something between Nebulon and Napoleon05:42

DocScrutinizer51kyak: thanks12:39
kyakDocScrutinizer51: huh?12:45
DocScrutinizer51for explaining nebuleon12:47
kyakit was merely a guess or a joke, but you are welcome :)12:48
DocScrutinizer51it was a google search I recently am reluctant to do12:55
DocScrutinizer51I was wondering if it's a mickname or a package name12:55
DocScrutinizer51nick*12:56
DocScrutinizer51never thought debian rules allow nicks to sign off12:56
baritonhi, good days! I've got a question that has to do with using mobile internet on ubuntu. I hope it suits here. I'd like to ask if it is possible to use mobile internet usb on a second computer. both computers run on ubuntu13:05
baritonthought hardware-related people might say something about it13:05
pcercueiit's not really the right channel. You should ask on #ubuntu, I think13:07
DocScrutinizer51generally you cannot connect two PCs (USB hosts) via USB13:07
baritonI see. I thought maybe the mobile internet (usb stick) could work on a network of two computers13:08
DocScrutinizer51you need to use e.g. ethernet to connect your two PCs and share internet from one to other13:09
baritoncan I do that when they're connected with ethernet cable?13:10
DocScrutinizer51the USB dongle connects to exactly one host at a time13:10
baritonI see13:10
DocScrutinizer51yes13:10
baritoninteresting that a wireless internet could be shared when two machines are connected with wire13:10
DocScrutinizer51you usually can use simple ethernet ptch cable to connect two PC13:10
DocScrutinizer51patch*13:11
baritonDocScrutinizer51, thanks a lot, I'll try it!13:12
DocScrutinizer51bariton: you'll need instructions from #ubuntu on making a "zero-modem" aka crossover ethernet connection between 2 PCs work on sw level, and how to share the internet from one to the other machine13:27
baritonDocScrutinizer51, many thanks, now I am able to pose my question to them more precisely! :)13:29
baritonI was trying yesterday to see if I find anything on bluetooth settings..but it is another story, it seems.13:30
wpwrakthe secret of USB explained: http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=238815:19
DocScrutinizer51secret of USB?16:30
rohDocScrutinizer51: fits only on the 3rd try... quantum-state, wrong-state, right-state16:32
DocScrutinizer51errr?16:33
rohfirst time one tries, usb doesnt fit. rotate the plug, doesnt fit. rotate again, fits.16:33
DocScrutinizer51aaah16:34
rohso it must have been in some quantum state first. fitting, but not fitting at the same time16:34
DocScrutinizer51I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. Seen that no 24h ago16:40
wpwrakyou mean, "experienced" ? :)16:45
DocScrutinizer05yup. when plugging this mouse to CF2916:46
wpwrak*/me grins16:46
DocScrutinizer05just it took me more like 7 tries16:46
DocScrutinizer05that's the point with quantum states, you never know16:47
wpwrakso string theory with its multidimensional universe may be right after all :)16:47
DocScrutinizer05anyway no new mail, this ghost heads out again16:48
DocScrutinizer51time to disconnect the cf29 again16:49
DocScrutinizer51I *love* the military gear touch of that laptop16:50
DocScrutinizer51even with quantum USB16:50
kyaki always look for "the line" on USB connector, and then plug the other side up17:02
kyakbut i like the theory :)17:03
paul_boddieUSB: from the people who brought you Wintel.17:05
larscwell, the idea was good17:08
DocScrutinizer51kyak: what do you do with USB that are small side up?17:11
