   22:54:52 hacker: Did you try firefox to port 22 ;)
   22:54:52 MattJ_: "This address is restricted
                         This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing.
                         Firefox has canceled the request for your protection."
   22:54:52 MattJ_: .
   22:54:52 niekie: For your protection?
   22:54:52 * MattJ_ feels protected
   22:54:53 niekie: Protect from what?
   22:54:53 MattJ_: Firefox is taking care of me <3
   18:33:52 Matt: heh, who doesn't want peer to peer rtp?
   18:33:53 hacker: Enterprises. They want a PBX.
   18:36:22 hacker: Carriers, they are regulated
   18:38:51 hacker: Sure you and I might like it, but who is paying?
   18:38:51 xepbot: waqas, of course :)
   18:41:21 hacker: Wow, I can't beleive I walked in to that. :)
   16:25:25 stpeter: hi Chris
   16:25:25 xepbot: Hi stpeter
   16:25:33 stpeter: heh
   16:25:37 stpeter: hi Chris
   16:25:37 xepbot: Hey :)
   16:25:41 stpeter: hmm
   16:25:43 stpeter: weird
   16:25:52 Chris Mullins: Good morning all.
   16:26:02 stpeter: xepbot: you rock
 16:47:00 Chris Mullins: I do remember that when I first looked at it, it took me a long time to get it right - and many clients were buggy.
 16:47:08 stpeter: and GTalk and iChat do odd things, IIRC
 16:47:08 xepbot: Yes. It's puzzling.
 16:56:31 stpeter: xepbot: are you really a bot?
 16:56:31 xepbot: I am a hal 9000 computer.
 16:56:31 stpeter: LOL
 <Slade-> ugh python channel requires ident :/
 <opqdonut> freenode is quite fascistic

 21:36:11 lynx: have you thought about DNS over XMPP? duck
 21:36:33 mattj: :D
 21:37:12 teo: lynx: dns over xmpp, which in turn relies on dns. it would be cool
 21:39:15 lynx: let's implement xmpp on top of udp, then implement tcp on top of xmpp duck deeper
 23:38:59 waqas: oh no, MattJ doesn't do typos ... his bugs are very deep and complicated
 20:31:48 HAL: Error: utils.lua:160: bad argument #1 to 'pairs' (table expected, got nil)
 It can only be attributable to human error.
 20:32:00 MattJ: Ooohh
 20:32:14 MattJ: That explains yesterday's error
 20:36:25 MattJ: The structure of v2.0 has changed too much
 20:36:28 waqas: with newer bugs to exploit
 20:36:40 MattJ: There are none
 20:36:54 waqas: so you say
 20:37:18 HAL: ME IS A BUGGY BOT
 20:40:02 MattJ: Except that one
 20:40:40 waqas: and so on and so forth ...
 17:23:25 <legoscia> i believe most Jabber developers hide a personal secret. that's why they concentrate 
                     on building communication tools, instead of actually communicating, and thereby risking 
                     to reveal their secret.
 17:24<Light Lan> msn down again
 17:24<astrobit> die MSN!
 17:25<MattyJ> \o/
 17:25<MattyJ> astrobit: How can MSN die? It's dead right now... :D
 17:26<astrobit> well....
 17:26<astrobit> mmm :/
 17:26<astrobit> dont wake up MSN!
 <fung> yea, i guess we should never tell a joke about anything that someone died from
 <fung> i dont think IRC with strangers is a good place to address them
 <fung> OH *
 * rjek grins.
 <fung> my grandparents were killed by conjecture and ncurses
 <fung> im running out of things to enjoy
 <rjek> ncurses will drive most people to suicide.
 22:31<grzywacz> hi everyone
 22:31<grzywacz> hi stpeter :)

 13:49:26 linwidi: no one awake.
 13:49:29 linwidi has left
 13:49:55 legoscia: oh… that was fast ☺
 13:50:04 StephanieDaugherty: rofl
 13:50:15 StephanieDaugherty: I'll never understand why people do that.
 13:51:00 legoscia: i believe they are just people with short attention span looking for some human contact
 13:51:19 legoscia: unfortunately, all the chat rooms that i see them in are off-topic for that ☺
 13:52:18 legoscia: maybe all jabber clients should have a big button labeled "CHAT WITH PEOPLE", that brings them all into one chat room
 <MattJ> <(sed 's/include\ <gloox\/\(.*\)>/include \"\1\"/' ../../glooxbindings-0.1.2-tmp/src/!(gloox).i | cat gloox/tessa.i -)
  That seems to be performing process substution for all files that match the pattern
  Instead of passing them to sed
 <greycat> what the HELL is that?
 <MattJ> It's beautiful
 [20:24]<TobiasFar> so edrin, what are you coding lately? :)
 [20:25]<edrin> nothing
 [20:25]<edrin> currently developing other things
 [20:25]<TobiasFar> like?
 [20:25]<elmex> a life? :)
 [20:25]<elmex> thats somewhere on my todo list
 [20:25]<TobiasFar> ahhh
 [20:25]<elmex> below 'rewriting linux kernel'
 <xamox> I don't hate gentoo by any means
 <xamox> I actually think it's awesome
 <xamox> like, I made a joke that when I formatted my primary PC and put 
         gentoo on it, that it gentook up my entire weekend
 <MattJ> xD

 [20:38]<TobiasFar> is it a MUST to have backward compatibility?
 [20:39]<stpeter> TobiasFar: the only thing you MUST do is die eventually, and even 
                  that is being worked on by some smart people ;-)

 [21:04:26] MattJ: !do php = "PHP is Bad"
 [21:04:27] HAL: Done :)
 [21:04:57] waqas: !do lua = "Lua is evil"
 [21:04:57] HAL: That's something I could not allow to happen.
 [21:05:00] waqas: !
 [21:05:03] MattJ: xD
 <deryni> gd.so looks to me like it statically links lua in, while postgres.so 
          doesn't. Though I can't imagine that matters here it can cause issues.
 <TobiasFar> so?
 <TobiasFar> what can i do?
 <Keffo> my laundry
 [07:32:56 PM] <Waqas> No. Its just that many things are easier in C++, so people 
                       prefer that. And it has the two pluses, so its cooler by definition.
 [07:33:21 PM] <Thorns> Hehe
 [07:33:45 PM] <Thorns> C++ should have been named at least +C+ if not ++C :P
 [07:33:54 PM] <Thorns> plusiplus! :P
 [07:34:26 PM] <Waqas> C++ is still C. ++C would have been D. +C+ wouldn't compile.
 [07:34:42 PM] <Thorns> xD
 [07:35:16 PM] <Thorns> I'm sending this to Matthew to add on his quotes page :D
 [07:35:25 PM] <Waqas>  :D

                                  time to take a bath :O

 [20:27:25] thorns: MattJ, omg that password has stuck
 [20:27:34] MattJ: I know :D
 [20:27:43] thorns: I recently changed all my passes, because I think I gave it out
 [20:27:53] MattJ: It is a slight variation :)
 [20:28:07] thorns: Yeah but guess what my new password all around is? ^^
 [20:28:30] MattJ: don't tell me I just guessed it...? :D

 [15:57:04] MattJ: Ah, we do have prosody-chat, I should be in there :)
 [15:57:18] waqas: MattJ is away, so we can be OT all we want
 [15:57:27] MattJ: I'm not away, I'm here I tell you!
 [15:57:50] waqas: That's not what miranda is telling me, and it's more trustworthy
 [15:57:53] Thorns: You seem to be away
 [15:58:08] MattJ: No! I'm here!
 [15:58:21] waqas: Thorns: It's obviouly HAL pretending to be MattJ
 [15:58:50] Thorns: waqas, I don't think he's pretending anymore. I think HAL thinks he IS MattJ.
 [21:00:07] MattJ : Now I *know* why Tobias doesn't use Prosody on his server
 [21:00:33] Tobias: and why is that?
 [21:01:17] albert: Because he want to use all his RAM of course.
 [21:01:59] waqas: Yeah, Prosody wastes more RAM, by not using it.
