[06:05:30] <jthornton> on a 5i25 what is a PTC? "This 5V power is protected by a PTC"
[06:06:38] <archivist> positive temperature coefficient, in short it gets hot and goes high resistance
[06:06:52] <archivist> a resettable fuse
[06:09:26] <jthornton> thanks
[08:33:45] <pcw_home> 4.4.1-rt5 seems decent ( videos compiling 10 glxgears etc )
[08:33:46] <pcw_home> http://freeby.mesanet.com/e8500-4.4.1-rt5.png
[08:36:11] <jthornton> I'm still building rt5
[08:37:10] <pcw_home> Takes a while
[08:37:43] <jthornton> I did figure out where to go when the patch can't be found and get the new version name :)
[08:38:58] <pcw_home> Yeah, I wish they would symlink the new stuff to the old dir (Or I was better at scription so the build script could try both )
[08:39:42] <pcw_home> scripting
[08:42:36] <pcw_home> 4.4.X-rtX should be good for really new hardware ( Skylake for example )
[13:18:15] <cradek> and today sourceforge disappears
[13:19:02] <cradek> http://i2.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/019/304/old.jpg
[13:20:02] <mozmck> increasing people trust...
[13:21:13] <cradek> it was working earlier because I was looking at a bug
[13:21:48] <cradek> I'm conflicted. sourceforge is bad, but I'm sad we have two bug trackers now.
[13:22:43] <mozmck> Yeah, and I have mixed feelings about github too.
[13:25:27] <JT-Shop> so far I've sent 3 replies to the mailing list in the last 3 days and none show up...
[13:25:57] <mozmck> I have trouble with emails taking a long time to show up. Not that I post a lot...
[13:26:23] <mozmck> I guess the mailing list is on sourceforge too. I don't think github has a mailing list service.
[13:26:54] <cradek> yeah I don't think so
[13:28:33] <mozmck> launchpad does - we could spread stuff everywhere so it is less likely to all go down at once ;-)
[13:29:05] <cradek> isn't that a ubuntu service? nope nope nope
[13:29:11] <mozmck> :-)
[13:29:23] <cradek> they're slowly losing their vision/minds
[13:29:57] <mozmck> although I'm a google anti-fan, google groups actually seem to work pretty good as a mailing list.
[13:31:46] <cradek> although I whine about sourceforge, we've had working mailing lists for 15? years there.
[13:31:57] <mozmck> That's not too bad.
[13:32:27] <cradek> if we had to pick sourforge or giggle for a bet on the next 15, I don't know which I'd pick
[13:33:29] <cradek> seems like giggle has killed off more services than sourforge has, but they probably had more to start with
[13:59:53] <JT-Shop> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Mailman
[14:01:39] <cradek> ?
[14:02:30] <mozmck> I think he's suggesting we host our own ;-)
[14:06:49] <JT-Shop> just wandering around the internet
[17:13:52] <mozmck> Wow, my post showed up in a few minutes this time.
[17:23:31] <skunkworks> There is no rhyme or reason
[18:12:23] <JT-Shop> I found out that I was not replying to the list lol
[18:13:09] <cradek> JT-Shop: ouch
[18:21:36] <JT-Shop> yea, I didn't even notice the guy replied back to me and not the list
[18:21:58] <JT-Shop> made the mistake the other way once...
[18:30:29] <cradek> only once?
[18:35:08] <andypugh> I do it all the time. Eventually you learn to pretend it was deliberate.
