[03:14:06] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[03:14:12] <Yuv422> hi
[04:28:32] <sbx> hello
[05:06:44] <Yuv422> hey sbx
[06:36:35] <sbx> Yuv422: anything new in nuvie? :)
[06:36:54] <Yuv422> I'm working on my text input class now
[06:37:04] <Yuv422> I've been real busy with work lately
[06:37:17] <Yuv422> so not much time to work on Nuvie. :-(
[06:37:29] <sbx> have to admit I havn't worked on it recently, been busy configurating the other computer
[06:37:37] <sbx> i still need to get slackware 10
[06:37:49] <Yuv422> so you got your new computer?
[06:37:57] <sbx> heh yeah
[06:38:01] <Yuv422> cool
[06:38:13] <sbx> it has DVDRW
[06:38:23] <Yuv422> hehe nice
[06:38:36] <Yuv422> I have a DVD burner in my mac
[06:38:47] <Yuv422> but it is limited to 1x speed
[06:38:55] <sbx> this is the first time i've used it so I had fun making a dvd menu in tmpgenc
[06:38:57] <Yuv422> well 2x if I use apple discs
[06:39:01] <sbx> i've used any dvd burner*
[06:39:03] <sbx> ah
[06:39:16] <sbx> not sure i'll use it much but maybe for backups
[06:40:08] <Yuv422> someone posted some spam to the nuvie forum the other day
[06:40:13] <sbx> what
[06:40:14] <Yuv422> I removed it yesterday
[06:40:15] <sbx> haha
[06:40:19] <sbx> what was it?
[06:40:40] <Yuv422> a russian dating agency
[06:40:42] <sbx> at least with the email ones they are just doing it en mass
[06:40:59] <sbx> btw I have a gmail account
[06:41:06] <Yuv422> cool
[06:41:12] <Yuv422> how did you get that!?
[06:41:26] <sbx> my friend sent me an invitation
[06:41:45] <sbx> zabeus@
[06:42:12] <sbx> and why would they think Nuvie wants a russian date?
[06:42:28] <Yuv422> yeah that's what I was thinking
[06:42:56] <Yuv422> is zabeus your gmail address?
[06:43:01] <sbx> yeah
[06:43:18] <Yuv422> is it good?
[06:43:21] <Yuv422> gmail that is
[06:43:30] <sbx> i dunno I've only gotten 1 mail :)
[06:43:34] <sbx> i just got it today
[06:43:50] <sbx> it doesnt support opera
[06:43:57] <sbx> that's not good for me I'm an opera freak
[06:44:04] <Yuv422> at all
[06:44:09] <sbx> nope
[06:44:10] <Yuv422> ?
[06:44:13] <sbx> hopefully it will in the future
[06:44:14] <Yuv422> :(
[06:44:15] <sbx> but I have firefox and it works
[06:44:20] <sbx> it works in safari
[06:44:28] <Yuv422> cool
[06:44:39] <Yuv422> how do you know that? ;)
[06:44:57] <sbx> actually there is a list on their page
[06:45:03] <Yuv422> ok
[06:45:12] <sbx> my new computer is also a PC
[06:45:15] <sbx> with XP home preinstalled
[06:45:22] <sbx> but maybe my next purchase will be a mac
[06:45:36] <Yuv422> macs are good but expensive. :(
[06:45:44] <sbx> this one doesn't even have any firewire ports
[06:45:51] <sbx> that's standard on apple right?
[06:45:56] <Yuv422> yes
[06:45:59] <sbx> they said its better than usb
[06:46:09] <Yuv422> the new macs have firewire 800 too
[06:47:02] <sbx> i don't know anything about it... that's high speed?
[06:47:22] <Yuv422> yeah normal firewire runs at 400Mbs
[06:47:33] <sbx> so this is 800Mbs
[06:47:43] <Yuv422> yes
[06:47:47] <sbx> how fast is usb?
[06:47:53] <Yuv422> 12Mbs
[06:48:30] <sbx> hmm
[06:48:33] <sbx> ouch? :)
[06:48:49] <Yuv422> usb 2 is much faster
[06:49:01] <Yuv422> not too sure that the specs are though
[06:50:01] <sbx> this new one might just be usb1
[06:50:09] <sbx> it doesn't say usb2 anyway
[06:50:58] <sbx> I'll have to dl and try nuvie on it.
[06:51:36] <Yuv422> :)
[06:51:50] <Yuv422> It should build alot faster now. :)
[06:52:01] <sbx> true I hadn't thought of that
[06:52:05] <sbx> now my changes can be tested on two platforms before committing
[06:52:13] <Yuv422> hehe cool
[06:52:28] <sbx> at least for some timing-dependant things i might be worried about
[06:52:45] <sbx> animation & walking particularly
[06:52:58] <sbx> which reminds me, did you look at the skip-walking bug again?
[06:53:01] <Yuv422> yeah it's allways good to have a slow machine around for speed testing
[06:53:07] <Yuv422> not yet
[06:53:30] <Yuv422> I'm focusing on getting save support fixed first
[06:53:37] <sbx> is it broken?
[06:53:46] <sbx> hmm
[06:53:49] <sbx> besides the descriptions
[06:54:39] <Yuv422> yeah just the descriptions
