Got your phone message.
13:56
<jammcq>

<sbalneav>
Andy idea what hotel we're at?

13:58
<jammcq>
dunno
13:58
actually, it's very close to the hotel we stayed at last time
13:58
remember there were 2 hotels on the same street ?
13:58
<sbalneav>
Hey, how are you handling luggage? You gonna check in, or try carry-on?
13:58
<jammcq>
I think the comfort Inn was directly across the street from that pizza place we went to the first day
13:58
I gotta check it
13:59
carrying too much crap to carry on
13:59
<sbalneav>
heh, know where we'll be eating then :)
13:59

hello
15:21
what kind of machine will be required for an ltsp installation to hold 15 x terminals?
15:23
<sbalneav>
!serversizing
15:23
<ltspbot>
sbalneav: "serversizing" is http://wiki.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/ServerSizing
15:23
<sbalneav>
nsar: There's some good information on the wiki page.
15:24
<nsar>
this link that sbalneav show on the screen?
15:25
<sbalneav>
That's the one.

15:54bobby_C has quit IRC
15:56
<sbalneav>
A dual core would be fine for 15 clients.
15:56
Be fine for a lot more, depending on usage.
15:56
<muh2000>
i have trouble starting ltsp. upgraded debian to etch(amd64). i guess the problem is the move from xfree to xorg

16:26DANTASiK has left #ltsp
16:26
<mfdutra>
the global weather is really weird
16:26
it's 68f here
16:26
and veeery windy
16:26
<jammcq>
what is the weather forcast for wednesday?
16:26
<mfdutra>
actually the wind is calm, but we have a lot of wind gusts today
16:27
no rain, highs around 80 and lows around 64
16:27
<jammcq>
ah, nice
16:27
<mfdutra>
very nice
16:27
partly cloudy
16:28
there is a cyclone 500 km west of here and it's throwing wind gusts here
16:28
<jammcq>
hmm
16:28
hope that doesn't cause problems wednesday morning
16:29
<mfdutra>
I guess until there it's gone
16:29
all the airports in southern brazil are under warning
16:29
wind shears in low altitudes
16:30
the worst nightmare for pilots
16:30
<jammcq>
yes
16:30
wind shear brought down a DC-10 back in 1985 in Dallas
16:30
<mfdutra>
I could NEVER land a plane under wind shear :(
16:30
fortunately it was a simulator :)
16:31
<jammcq>
heh, my brother from another mother
16:31
<mfdutra>
heheheh yeah yeah
16:31
I haven't been flying too much lately
16:32
bengoa is doind very well
16:32
...doing...
16:32
RAIN, LOTS OF RAIN NOW
16:32
it was clear skies half an hour ago
16:36
<jammcq>
hmm
16:36
I have to go into my livingroom, and be with my family for a while. see you later
16:36
<mfdutra>
see you
16:38
<sbalneav>
mfdutra: How's the air traffic control strike?
16:39
<mfdutra>
getting better. they're now working well
16:39
but there are rumours of another strike, but I don't think so
16:42
I was traveling on that day :(
16:42
I got stuck 6 hours at the airport in Amazonia
16:43
sbalneav, buddy, did you reply to priscilla's e-mail?
16:43
<sbalneav>
Yes, I did.
16:43
<mfdutra>
I'll tell her
16:44
<sbalneav>
Okie.
16:44
<mfdutra>
everything ready to come down?
16:44
<sbalneav>
Think so. Hey, I can't remember: what kind of power plugs you guys have down there?
16:44
And, are you 240 or 120 V
16:44
?
16:45
<mfdutra>
110v, same plugs as the us
16:46
<sbalneav>
Hey, how's things going down there, Linux wise? I've been getting LOTS of good vibes about linux adoption in Brazil this year.
16:47
Even had someone in #edubuntu mention that they adopted linux after last year's FISL
16:47
<mfdutra>
yes, I see it's going better every year
16:47
fisl pushes that
16:47
although in the government it's been better
16:48
everything is so slow in the government, and depends a lot of political wills
16:52
<sbalneav>
Well, if we manage to hook up with President da Silva, we can do a sales job on him. :)
16:52
I think Propus would like a nice contract to convert the entire government to Linux, yes?
16:52
:)
16:53
We want no more of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:BillGates_and_Lula1852.jpeg
16:57
<mfdutra>
yeah
16:57
well, I myself don't like to work for the government
16:57
I can't support lobbies and those kinds of things that happen in the governments
16:58gepatino has joined #ltsp
16:58
<mfdutra>
although I have some good customers in the government, I prefer very much my private customers
16:58
where everything is clear and fair
16:59
<sbalneav>
Heh, governments, corrupt? Say it ain't so! ;)
17:00
<mfdutra>
yes. that's terrible
17:01
I hate to see that things don't move forward just because of someone's interests
