TopFuel: hey dudes
TopFuel: any site to find the peak hours of a website?
mikeplus64: What the..
xee: hi everyone
xee: anyone knows if SB850 RAID(which is fakeraid AFAIK) works in Linux?
RambJoe: anyone use truecrypt?
FliPPeh: GPG > ALL!
RambJoe: ima try it
RambJoe: fbi couldn't crack truecrypt
RambJoe: they tried running a dicntionary bruteforce on it for 5 months lol
FliPPeh: GPG is uncracked as of now, too
RambJoe: is it easy to set up
RambJoe: Not enough random bytes available. Please do some other work to give
RambJoe: the OS a chance to collect more entropy! (Need 284 more bytes)
ein_: anything new with the steam client
FliPPeh: RambJoe: That's why it's so secure :)
FliPPeh: It doesn't just use random bytes
FliPPeh: It uses the FINEST of all random bytes
RambJoe: am i meant to remember those bytes then lol
asraniel: use that one
asraniel: it was purely random
asraniel: true story
FliPPeh: Do you know asymmetric key authentification?
FliPPeh: public and private key?
RambJoe: i hvae the key fingerprint
alexandernst: Has anyone used mupdf to encrypt pdf's ?
mjr: you do realize that encrypted pdfs are a joke (at least if we're talking about the traditional DRM-wannabe encryption)?
alexandernst: mjr: yes
alexandernst: mjr: I just wanted to test mupdf encrypt capabilities
Kano: michaellarabel: did you try ironlake vaapi yet?
Kano: i just tested it, mplayer showed a pic with h264, but was too slow. vlc was green
Kano: mpeg2 works
Kano: used latest u mainline kernel
Kano: libdrm patched with
Kano: hmm maybe the input is problematic for mplayer
Kano: 1280x720 50 fps hdtv...
Kano: looks like slomo ;)
dandel: kano, 1280x720 at 50fps might be too much for the video card itself.
dandel: especially for decoding.
Kano: dandel: nvidia can decode it with vaapi
Kano: just -demuxer lavf needed
Kano: software only is no problem too for the i5
bicchi: Is it possible to have my own Phoronix Global? That is, instead of the results going to Phoronix Global site go my own repository?
Kano: bicchi: you are not the first with that idea...
bicchi: Kano, well it's and idea now but more like a question. So i guess no one has done this before ?
Kano: i did not get the source for it, if you like to implement it yourself you see the relatively simple way it is posted in pts
Tazer: Yooo! Any updates on Steam?
riisen: Tazer, http://store.steampowered.com/news/
Tazer: yeah i meant linux related but thanks
Tazer: i figured there werent any anyhow
RambJoe: this guy is a hero
FliPPeh: A strange game.
FliPPeh: The only winning move is not to play.
FliPPeh: Oh yeah the video
FliPPeh: It's funny because it's true.
nyxkn: how are you supposed to find a tab if chromium stacks them all in a one screen length bar :(
Sleepy_Coder: Chrome sucks at tab handling, in the most profoundly retarded way possible.
FliPPeh: Just split the windows
FliPPeh: Or use less than 20 :/
FliPPeh: I wonder why people need so many tabs
nyxkn: i was looking for a more lightweight alternative to firefox
nyxkn: should i try opera?
FliPPeh: Opera and the Qt stuff it carries?
Sleepy_Coder: I still prefer Firefox because of the control I have over the UI
Sleepy_Coder: I wouldn't say Opera is lightweight.. :>
FliPPeh: I ditched firefox because it's support for GTK sucks
Sleepy_Coder: All browsers are pretty heavy :p
Drone4four: what does X Synchronization Fences do?
Drone4four: i ask becasue there is a recent article on Phoronix saying that nVidia is contributing to that X server module or some shit
tkmorris: XSYNC: The X Synchronization Extension
tkmorris: oh, I found more
Drone4four: thanks tkmorris =D those links help
tkmorris: Drone4four: you're welcome
tkmorris: "Linux Gains Steam"
tkmorris: nah, the video is from may
