<mistik1>
hey guys, ltns
18:08
sbalneav, ping
18:10
<sbalneav>
mistik1: Hey!
18:10
How are you?
18:11
<mistik1>
I'm good man, how you been?
18:11
<sbalneav>
Doing well!
18:12
What you up to these days?
18:12
<mistik1>
Still coding for food and building CNC machines
18:13
<sbalneav>
Oh cool
18:13
<mistik1>
My computer life and carpentry life has merged in CNC
18:13
<sbalneav>
I'm still at Legal Aid... got 7 more years to go until I can retire.
18:15
<mistik1>
That's pretty cool, when you're done retire out here :)
18:16
I'll get started on the pool
18:18
When I came home I thought I would find 1000 uses for ltsp but alas everything is wireless out here
18:19
<maldridge>
I have seen laptops with wifi pxe capacity, worst design ever but they do exist
18:20
<sbalneav>
Meh, kind of a moot point in many ways.
18:20
<mistik1>
yea
18:20
<sbalneav>
15 years ago, we in the linux community wanted to win the desktop. It was our dream.
18:21
In the end, we won everything BUT the desktop.
18:21
Server, embedded, mobile... most of it runs linyx
18:21
<mistik1>
so true
18:21
<sbalneav>
*linux
18:22
<mistik1>
As a developer I have ran into some of the reasons we did not win the desktop...
18:23
<sbalneav>
I, personally like linux as a desktop; but I actually understand computers. Most don't.
18:23
<mistik1>
I told some guys in linux audio one that just because its opensource does not been the interface has to look like a NASA control panel
18:23
s/one/once/
18:24
<sbalneav>
That's the tweaker mindset; we want access to everything.
18:24
Joe Average just wants a volume knob :D
18:24
<mistik1>
exactly
18:24
Its called an advanced settings button
18:25
<sbalneav>
Those are scary, and don't work. People bumble into them, and then screw something up.
18:25
Hence: Apple.
18:25
And Apple products work quite well.
18:26
You just have to do things *the way apple wants you to*.
18:26
For a lot of people, who don't care about technical details, that's fine.
18:27
<mistik1>
No perfect world is there?
18:27
<sbalneav>
People like me obsess over "Should I arrange my MP3's by artist, album, songs, or artist - album, song? Should I use underscores in the name, or are spaces ok?", etc.
18:27
Joe Average just plugs everything into iTunes and forgets it. :D
18:28
<mistik1>
lol
18:29
I find myself somewhere in the middle these days
18:30
I no longer want to tweak everything every time but I want to be able to.
18:30
<sbalneav>
I still obsess over the mp3's, but I simply accept that I'm in the tiny minority. I've given up trying to "promote" linux; most people just don't want the kind of control that I do.
18:31
And it works out well for me; Since I don't know bugger-all about windows anymore, I don't have to help people with their incessant windows problems :D I just claim (and actually am) ignorance.
18:32
<mistik1>
amen to that
18:33
I am so out of that game, I reject everything these days
18:34
I'd rather build a PCB now, than deal with people's problems and repairs
18:34
<sbalneav>
heh, the older and more knowledgeable you get, the less you need to interact with others, and the more you can just architecht your own little "perfect" world. :D
18:35
<mistik1>
:D
18:38
<sbalneav>
The plan is, once I get retired, and no longer have "job" type stuff to worry about, I can spend summers doing the outdoorsy stuff I like, and winters doing the open-source stuff.
18:39
<mistik1>
sounds like a good plan
18:44
hey Scott. still got the same email?
18:45
I want to show you something
18:50
<sbalneav>
sbalneav@ltsp.org works find.
18:50
*fine
18:56
<mistik1>
on its way
19:13
<sbalneav>
Wow
19:13
That's pretty amazing
19:29
<mistik1>
thanks
