Luke-Jrdo you guys use QQ? I heard everyone in China does..08:24
Luke-Jris there open source QQ software that works?08:25
wpwrakhmm, google were busy for halloween. i wonder how many search page title clips they have in total. what i found so far: werewolf, graveyard, pumpkins, witch, ghost, scarecrow.09:48
larscBtw. why are digital signal processing engineers not scared on halloween?10:00
larscBecause they know how to use FIR filters10:00
kyakhm, i don't get it -\11:25
wpwrakkyak: FIR is pronounced like "fear"13:22
kyakah, thanks :)13:28
kyakhow is IIR pronounced then?13:29
kyakHow do I pronounce "FIR"?13:32
kyakwhat do they mean by "a type of tree"?13:32
kyakso it's almost like "fur"13:34
kyakor "f-i-r"13:34
kyaki frankly never heard "fear" :)13:34
kyakbefore wpwrak explained it to me, i almost started to think that FIR filters are so horrific, that DSP engineers are not scared of halloween. .But that's just not true, so i came out with a modification:13:41
kyakwhy are systemd maintainers not afraid of halloween? Because they know how systemd works13:41
kyaknow it is possible to replace systemd with almost anything else13:42
kyakgcc, for instance13:42
wpwrakif you use german pronounciation, then "FIR" sounds like common english "fear": http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/definition/english/fear_113:48
wpwrakand since english pronunciation knows no rules, you're kind free to do as you please with acronyms :)13:49
kyakdo you mean if we show the word "fir" to a native german, not related to DSP, he would pronounce it as "fear"?13:50
pcercueisomething like "Fihrr"14:06
