[03:38:44] <sbx> trillian3 underlines random terms pointing to wikipedia entries from in your conversations
[03:39:53] <sbx> such as "rhyme scheme"
[03:41:03] <servus> How very Everything2 of it.
[03:44:11] <sbx> whats that?
[03:45:55] <sbx> Oh, it's a search engine. If I had Trillian3 that would have been underlined and I'd have known that!
[03:48:32] <sbx> http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node=Everything%20FAQ
[03:48:37] <servus> Everything2 is a neat little community blog thingy
[03:53:07] <sbx> yeah that's a better description
[03:56:48] <servus> Community blog thingy! Yay!
[04:16:10] <Lord_Nightmare> servus!
[04:16:22] <servus> EEK!
[04:16:35] <Lord_Nightmare> what happened? did you have a disk crash? i heard that somewhere
[04:17:17] <servus> Yes actually.
[04:17:28] <servus> A catastrophic one, too!
[04:17:40] <servus> I get new hardware tomorrow. Dual RAID with hard drive coolers this time.
[04:18:46] --> Baastuul_ has joined #exult
[04:19:05] <Lord_Nightmare> ouch
[04:19:08] <Lord_Nightmare> how much got lost?
[04:19:27] <-- Baastuul has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[04:19:29] --- Baastuul_ is now known as Baastuul
[04:19:53] <servus> Just 400GB.
[04:20:14] <Lord_Nightmare> 400GB? i didn't know they MADE disks that big
[04:20:37] <Lord_Nightmare> you had backups, right?
[04:21:30] <servus> Hehehe.
[04:21:36] <servus> I do now.
[04:21:48] <servus> I think I can recover the data, if this jerkhead from eBay ever sends me the replacement part.
[04:22:01] <servus> The way it's going, though, I'm going to have to sue him for my money back and get the piece from elsewhere though : o/
[04:22:03] <Lord_Nightmare> i/o board fried?
[04:23:39] <servus> Yes.
[04:24:12] <Lord_Nightmare> and an ebay get-the-money-and-run scammer too. damn
[04:24:14] --> trand has joined #exult
[04:24:15] <servus> It wouldn't even spin up, so I bought another drive of the same model. It spins up, but didn't work. Even though it's the same exact model, it's a new revision, and the controller board is COMPLETELY redesigned.
[04:24:31] <servus> Completely different ROM version and everything.
[04:24:37] <Lord_Nightmare> ah, crap.
[04:24:44] <servus> Yeah. Lousy Western Digitial.
[04:25:04] <servus> So I'm trying to find a first-revision WD2500BB 7200RPM 8MB Caviar.
[04:25:13] <servus> Found one on eBay but the guy is defrauding me.
[04:25:39] <Lord_Nightmare> does he respond to emails?
[04:25:55] <servus> Nope
[04:25:59] <Lord_Nightmare> has he sent a tracking number?
[04:26:00] <servus> Nor to the phone call I left him
[04:26:04] <servus> Ha ha ha.
[04:26:07] <servus> I've gotten NO word from him.
[04:26:12] <servus> It's been 24 days.
[04:26:15] <Lord_Nightmare> if you paid him via paypal, they can revert charges
[04:26:27] <servus> Yeah, I'm filing tonight
[04:26:43] --> Baastuul_ has joined #exult
[04:26:44] <Lord_Nightmare> don't forget to leave nasty negative feedback
[04:27:05] <servus> I figure negative feedback is more threatening before I actually leave it, that way, it's an impending doom.
[04:27:22] <Lord_Nightmare> and you may want to complain to ebay's services department also
[04:27:30] <servus> I have.
[04:27:38] <servus> Gonna raise living heck.
[04:28:37] <-- Baastuul has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[04:28:39] --- Baastuul_ is now known as Baastuul
[04:29:48] <Lord_Nightmare> yeah, with ebay you can typically do nasty things. right now some company in UK owes me $180 and they have for close to a year now... sent for product but they didn't have it in stock even though they claimed to, and they're waiting for new stock to come in. too bad the item is discontinued.
[04:35:41] <Lord_Nightmare> nobody checks help tickets
[04:43:37] <servus> I will get my money back, or get my productr.
[04:43:43] <servus> I'll knock on his door if I have to.
[04:46:02] <Lord_Nightmare> nah i was saying, on ebay you can typically make a scammer's life miserable
[04:46:18] <Lord_Nightmare> in MY case with the $180 i didn't use ebay
[04:46:25] <Lord_Nightmare> which was a mistake
[04:51:37] <servus> I'm basically getting scammed, but the guy has like 1,000 feedbacks in the last year. 97.1% positive, but 2.9% is a LOT for negative feedback!
[04:52:41] <sbx> the argument on there seems to be if you get lots of positive feedback it outweighs the negative
[04:53:03] <sbx> I think they should be displayed side by side on the same page.
[04:53:25] <sbx> so you can see the comments too

[07:25:24] <servus> It's not. Tomorrow I get my Linux box back up though
