DocScrutinizer05BSODs often caused by "dry" capacitors on mainboard CPU regulators01:51
DocScrutinizer05meh, he left anyway01:52
DocScrutinizer05+12V at 8V, -12V @ 8V, minus 5V AT EIGHT VOLT? WTF?01:55
DocScrutinizer05I guess somebody just fired his mainboard01:55
DocScrutinizer05fried, whatever01:55
DocScrutinizer05anyway swapping mains outlet won't help ;-P01:56
DocScrutinizer053V3 at 2 v01:57
DocScrutinizer05you shalt not operate moster graca on flimsy weak PSU ;-P01:57
wpwraki doubt the board would work with some of the key voltages that far off :) most likely it's incorrect readouts02:00
DocScrutinizer05aaah, it's amazing what boards can take02:00
DocScrutinizer05ut yeah, next advice would be "get a goddamn muultimeter, man!"02:01
DocScrutinizer05moolti meter02:02
DocScrutinizer05(hint: your graca doesn't really run at 12V internally)02:03
wpwraki'd be more worried about having 2.0 V on the 3.3 V rail02:04
DocScrutinizer05and the way too high -5V tell me that the PSU suffers massive overload but doesn#t shut down as a decent PSU is supposed to02:04
wpwraki find -12 V == -5 V suspicious. looks very much like wrong readings02:05
DocScrutinizer05though I should decide whether all voltages of PSU go down when one is overloaded, or if all other but the overloaded are going up ;-P02:05
DocScrutinizer05yeah, smells like short or wrong reading02:06
DocScrutinizer05get a dang mooltimeeta maan02:06
wpwraka short between -12 V and -5 V would actually explain high levels of unhappiness. but then, the values look a bit too perfect for this02:08
whitequarkquiz: would you run `less` on a file from unknown source?09:48
wpwraksounds as if yesterday's answer wouldn't be considered correct today ? :)09:51
whitequarkaka the reason people advocating the use of memory-unsafe languages, like C, need to be publicly flogged on a city square09:52
larschang them all up!09:56
whitequarklarsc: that would be the next step09:57
whitequarkif the first one didn't help...09:57
larscelimnation of bug class by elimnation of programmer class09:59
wpwrakkill all the programmers and programs will be safe again :)10:04
kyaknah, just kill all of those memory-unsafe programmers11:06
kyakor wait, i heard "debian" again - it's calling for a fork!11:08
kyakotherwise, a really nice find11:10
Action: kyak is checking if his LESSOPEN is unset11:11
larscboycottmemoryunsafelanguages.org ?11:33
whitequarksadly, not realistic just yet11:35
wpwrakooh, tomorrow's a holiday !13:38
Action: wpwrak thanks the press for kindly reporting on the projected income of the tourism industry, or he may not even have noticed ;-)13:38
eintopfwhats that17:32
larscyou mean vacation17:46
larsctwo more weeks and then finally19:56
pcercueitropics & booze19:57
pcercueilucky you :p19:57
larscmight combine that with a suprise visit to wpwrak ;)19:57
pcercueihe's in Buenos Aires, right?19:59
whitequarkI find it especially amusing that the city is called "good air"19:59
wpwraksmall detour, only 4.6 Mm ;-)20:00
wpwrakwhitequark: if you live at sufficient altitude, the air is actually quite breathable ;)20:01
pcercueiyou mean behind the clouds?20:02
whitequarkmore like above the troposphere, I think20:02
pcercueiI've been in Tucumán. There it was not breathable20:03
pcercueiit was like breathing petrol20:03
