wpwrakat school ? got an exam coming ? feel like cheating ? if so, there's nothing like bringing some external help with you: https://twitter.com/AbhiShekShahi22/status/617243585071546368/photo/123:23
wpwraknot: this really is about cheating at an exam. i didn't make it up. http://www.ibnlive.com/news/india/bihar-cheating-975215.html23:24
wpwrakerr, s/not:/note:/ :)23:25
DocScrutinizer05err yep >>A total of 14.26 lakh students were appearing for the exams at 1,217 centres in the state.<<23:31
DocScrutinizer05wonder how the 0.26 students looked like23:32
wpwrak1 lakh = 100 k :)23:33
DocScrutinizer05LOL23:35
DocScrutinizer05how did you find out? I was about to post "no, it's lakh examinees"23:35
wpwrakat least it's a power of ten, unlike all those fancy pre-metric units. i think pretty much every word in the english language also serves as some sort of unit. latest discoveries: lug, rod, aka 1/320 mile.23:36
wpwrak"dict lakh" :)23:36
DocScrutinizer05so you assume lakh is an english word?23:37
wpwraka word "dict" recognizes :)23:38
DocScrutinizer05I rather thought it got not translated just _because_ dict or babel or google translate wasn't able to find an english word for it23:38
wpwraknaw, in indian text (in english) you often find such local terms mixed in23:39
DocScrutinizer05weird shit, weird indians23:40
DocScrutinizer05you know what's ridiculous? the cccamp calculates a 2.5 MEGAwatt for the camp23:41
DocScrutinizer05that's about the maddest thing I heard of, last 20 years23:42
DocScrutinizer05they're getting 8 aggregates, which they allegedly need to stop once every 24h to refill them23:44
Action: DocScrutinizer05 stares in disbelief23:44
wpwrakhmm, computers, lighting, lots of people ...before you know it, you have a few MW23:45
DocScrutinizer05no way23:45
wpwrak(refill) so there will be rolling blackouts ? :)23:45
DocScrutinizer05yes23:45
wpwrakif they're unannounced and take hours, then it'll be just like home :)23:45
DocScrutinizer05sorry! they want to limit it to 30 min23:46
DocScrutinizer05insane. I never heard of the necessity to shut down an aggregate of that class for refilling it23:46
DocScrutinizer05I also never heard some event was calculated with a 500W/person continuous power consumption23:47
wpwrakmaybe they're overly cautious23:47
DocScrutinizer05I rather think they're nuts23:48
DocScrutinizer05for regular power grid you calculate a 100kW for a 100 flats, due to concurrency factor23:49
DocScrutinizer05for a single flat you calculate 10 to 15kW23:50
DocScrutinizer05honestly less than 1% of visitors will bring electric appliances that need more than 100W23:51
DocScrutinizer05*average*23:53
DocScrutinizer05even hairdryers don't count since they have a on/off ratio of <0.00123:54
DocScrutinizer05and AirCons are sold out in whole Germany recently, so I massively doubt we will see more than 10 of them on whole camp23:55
DocScrutinizer05I guess some jackass simply added some random MAXIMUM power numbers from datasheets23:56
DocScrutinizer05I bet the load on those generators will be ~1% amd they run with an efficiency of max 10% due to that, burning ten times more fuel than needed23:58
