[00:47:51] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[00:48:01] <Yuv422> hi
[00:54:48] <Yuv422> exit
[01:00:42] <Yuv422> hmm
[01:01:05] * Yuv422 wonders how 'exit' got on to this terminal
[01:09:07] <sbx> you typed it? :)
[01:09:09] <sbx> hi
[01:09:32] <sbx> i finally installed a real ethernet for my computers
[01:09:42] <sbx> (was using PLIP before)
[01:09:48] <sbx> trying to get it to work now
[01:09:58] <sbx> Win95<->WinXP atm
[01:11:36] <Yuv422> hey sbx
[01:11:37] <-- sbx has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[01:11:41] <Yuv422> :(
[01:11:58] --> sbx has joined #nuvie
[01:13:13] <sbx> enabling the LAN disconnected the dialup modem :P
[01:16:47] <Yuv422> hmm
[01:17:03] <sbx> I don't really know what I'm doing :)
[01:17:08] <Yuv422> win95 is pretty old.
[01:17:22] <sbx> no kidding
[01:17:25] <sbx> Do you need a router for 2 computers?
[01:17:37] <Yuv422> computer to computer?
[01:17:43] <sbx> yeah
[01:17:44] <Yuv422> no
[01:17:52] <Yuv422> just a crossover cable
[01:17:53] <sbx> the NIC is installed in the other one correctly
[01:17:55] <sbx> ok cool
[01:17:57] <sbx> do what
[01:18:06] <Yuv422> huh?
[01:18:12] <sbx> i mean ethernet
[01:18:23] <Yuv422> ah k
[01:18:33] <sbx> 10baseT 10/100
[01:18:46] <sbx> can I just connect the network adapters together?
[01:19:26] <Yuv422> do you mean 100 to 10?
[01:19:48] <sbx> They can do both and the other one is set to Auto.
[01:20:06] <sbx> I have a cat5 cable
[01:20:16] <Yuv422> is it a cross-over cable?
[01:20:35] <sbx> no
[01:20:49] <sbx> dammit
[01:20:55] <Yuv422> it needs to be a cross over
[01:21:15] <Yuv422> or you can plug the two computers into a hub or switch
[01:22:23] <sbx> I didn't see any at the store I went to, and the router is $80 dollars so I can't get that. I'll get another cable tomorrow.
[01:22:43] <sbx> or a hub
[01:22:45] <Yuv422> do you think a storm cloak should extinguish firefields?
[01:23:04] <sbx> hey that sounds cool
[01:23:06] <sbx> yep
[01:23:07] <Yuv422> hubs/switches are dirt cheap these days
[01:23:21] <sbx> ok thanks
[01:23:28] <sbx> I havn't done this before you can tell. :)
[01:23:35] <Yuv422> hehe
[01:23:48] <Yuv422> a switch is better than a hub
[01:24:13] <sbx> does it connect more than 2?
[01:24:27] <Yuv422> you plug the computers into the hub/switch with a straight-through cable
[01:24:38] <sbx> I'll get another cable too
[01:24:43] <Yuv422> you can get different sized switches/hubs
[01:24:57] <Yuv422> I have a little 5 port switch
[01:25:07] <sbx> Why is it better?
[01:25:31] <Yuv422> a hub is broadcast
[01:25:42] <Yuv422> a switch is direct connection
[01:26:04] <Yuv422> so anyone connected to a hub can look at everyone elses data
[01:27:25] <sbx> do you have to switch it manually?
[01:27:40] <Yuv422> no
[01:27:40] <sbx> if its more than 2 ports
[01:27:53] <sbx> ok
[01:28:12] <Yuv422> a switch acts just like a hub
[01:28:23] <Yuv422> but it is switched connections not broadcast
[01:31:03] <sbx> ok
[01:31:27] <sbx> I wasn't at a computer store it was an electronics store so that explains why they didn't have it.
[01:32:15] <sbx> going to send a CVS snapshot to dino dragon
[01:32:37] <Yuv422> nuvie?
[01:32:43] <sbx> yeah
[01:33:01] <sbx> he mailed me before Christmas he didn't have the ML address
[01:33:14] <Yuv422> ah k
[01:33:29] <Yuv422> does he want to compile it himself?
[01:34:25] <sbx> Yes and work with it.
[01:34:33] <Yuv422> cool
[01:35:04] <Yuv422> I was going thinking about moving walk_path out of pathfinder and into actor
[01:35:29] <Yuv422> then make a next_step or something similar for pathfinder
[01:35:58] <Yuv422> so we can have an actor die while taking a step
[01:36:02] <Yuv422> eg onto a firefield
[01:36:08] <Yuv422> or via poison
[01:36:32] <sbx> Ok, I have no plans for it right now. There is something I wrote down about fixing Pathfinder's various glitches and messy code but I can't do it for a while.
[01:37:04] <Yuv422> could you sent it to me
[01:37:07] <Yuv422> or was it on paper?
[01:37:13] <sbx> it's on paper :D
[01:37:16] <sbx> sorry
[01:37:19] <Yuv422> righto.
[01:37:21] <Yuv422> :)
[01:37:30] <sbx> I probably got a text file somewhere too
[01:37:42] <sbx> with a class outline
