[13:05:28] <alex_joni> I received your logs (that's GMT timing there?)
[13:05:52] <paul_c> yup
[13:07:27] <alex_joni> seems Timezon ewas set incorectly on my PC
[14:12:51] <alex_joni> how's the BDI-stuff going?
[14:13:57] <paul_c> Keep getting interruptions
[14:14:15] <paul_c> I hate cold call telesales
[14:15:45] <alex_joni> not so spread around here
[14:16:25] <alex_joni> guess we're still lucky
[14:17:22] <paul_c> today, I phone the head office and insist on speacking to the managing director(s)
[14:18:48] <alex_joni> and?
[14:20:14] <paul_c> no one from the board is in the office...
[14:20:26] <alex_joni> :(
[14:21:27] <paul_c> never mind - The PA is just as good...
[14:35:34] <jepler> good morning folks
[14:38:35] <alex_joni> hello there
[14:43:14] <rayh> Hi Alex.
[14:43:35] <rayh> Hi Jepler.
[14:43:42] <alex_joni> hey ray...
[14:43:48] <alex_joni> how's it going?
[14:44:19] <rayh> News -- Snowing here today. Lake is nearly frozen over.
[14:44:33] <alex_joni> nice...
[14:44:37] <alex_joni> I'd love some snow
[14:44:39] <rayh> Almost the end of the "hard sledding" season.
[14:44:46] <alex_joni> * alex_joni has to wait till december
[14:45:02] <alex_joni> going to our country-house
[14:45:09] <alex_joni> in the mountains
[14:45:16] <rayh> Where is your country house?
[14:48:38] <alex_joni> 150 km from here ;)
[14:48:47] <alex_joni> it's a place called Wolfsberg
[14:49:22] <rayh> That's not so far. I do like mountains. None around here.. hills only.
[14:49:53] <rayh> We get a couple hundred inches of snow during the average winter.
[14:49:59] <alex_joni> I especially like the snow...
[14:50:07] <alex_joni> up to 1.5m snow there ;)
[14:51:12] <alex_joni> * alex_joni is trying to revive an encoder
[14:51:21] <rayh> 5 per year but it packs down a lot.
[14:51:42] <alex_joni> 1.5m is pretty scary ;)
[14:51:58] <paul_c> * paul_c gets an inch or so of snow per year....
[14:51:58] <alex_joni> one winter I had to shuffle 3 hours just to get the car parked ;)
[14:52:25] <rayh> I know that experience.
[14:52:30] <rayh> Hi Paul.
[14:52:37] <alex_joni> paul: want me to DHL you some?
[14:52:50] <paul_c> Afternoon Ray.
[14:53:11] <paul_c> alex_joni: Thanks... I'll give it a miss.
[14:53:35] <rayh> You joke. One year we had little snow so they trucked some in for a snow sculpting contest.
[14:53:58] <alex_joni> I could get a truck full... (around 600EUR transport to the UK)
[14:54:01] <alex_joni> not that much
[14:54:01] <alex_joni> ;)
[14:54:24] <rayh> I'll contribute. It would look good in Paul's drive.
[14:54:55] <rayh> 'Course bucks aren't worth all that much in EUR these days.
[14:55:17] <paul_c> * paul_c puts the phone on divert to rayh's number.
[14:57:50] <rayh> Thanks a bunch!
[14:58:53] <paul_c> Going to test this build and then transfer it to the www.box for you to download
[14:59:13] <paul_c> (as long as it installs OK)
[14:59:22] <alex_joni> cool
[15:04:34] <alex_joni> how the heck can I take the disc out of an encoder without breaking it?
[15:04:45] <alex_joni> it's glued here... :(
[15:05:37] <paul_c> AARRGGG
[15:05:43] <alex_joni> errors still?
[15:11:52] <paul_c> big time at the last stage.
[15:13:50] <alex_joni> :(
[15:16:55] <paul_c> Custom install appears to work...
[15:18:33] <alex_joni> nice
[15:19:11] <paul_c> Default BDI install barfs, so that limits the bug somewhat.
[15:21:39] <alex_joni> I just sent an e-mail to zwisk
[15:21:45] <alex_joni> I'll mail it to you too
[15:22:04] <paul_c> 'bout a merge ?
[15:23:04] <rayh> alex_joni: I found four wolfsburgs in the Grosse Shell Atlas?
[15:23:05] <alex_joni> that and about make install
[15:23:14] <alex_joni> those are in germany/austria
[15:23:25] <alex_joni> this one is actually called Garana (in romanian)
[15:23:41] <alex_joni> it was built by german settlers some 150 years ago
[15:24:04] <rayh> Oh.
[15:24:18] <paul_c> * paul_c checks to see why alex_joni email gets filtered to trash'n'bounce
[15:25:02] <alex_joni> http://dsplabs.utt.ro/~juve/poze/garana/IM002529.JPG
[15:25:03] <paul_c> Eeeuww... html content.
[15:25:15] <alex_joni> hmmm...forgot to take that out ;)
[15:25:42] <alex_joni> rayh: this is Garana in the winter http://dsplabs.utt.ro/~juve/poze/garana/IM002486.JPG
[15:26:16] <alex_joni> and this is some snow in our yard: http://dsplabs.utt.ro/~juve/poze/garana/IM002449.JPG
[15:26:24] <rayh> My own ancestors settled on what is now the Poland Russian border about that time.
[15:28:08] <alex_joni> * alex_joni has never been to russia...
[15:28:14] <alex_joni> poland only once
[15:28:31] <rayh> I can see the need to shovel.
[15:30:10] <rayh> The mountains are beautiful near Garana.
[15:33:17] <alex_joni> yeah... but only 1000m high up there
[15:33:22] <alex_joni> it's enough for me...
[15:33:26] <alex_joni> gotta go...
[15:34:14] <rayh> Yes. Wonderful. The highest hill in Michigan is near us 0.5 Km.
[15:34:37] <alex_joni> paul or ray: can you add Frank Jungclaus as a developer ?
[15:35:37] <paul_c> not without a usr name.
[15:36:27] <rayh> You can see some stuff around our place at http://freedom.up.net/~rehenry/
[15:36:52] <alex_joni> * alex_joni leaves for today
[15:36:56] <alex_joni> bye guys
[15:45:50] <paul_c> back in five.
[15:45:59] <rayh> paul_c: Found frank will add him.
[15:55:08] <paul_c> Great.. Once we have at least one part translation, we can start testing
[15:55:22] <paul_c> then move on to the other strings
[15:59:26] <rayh> He's in there. I'll send a note to him.
[16:13:46] <rayh> Done.
