misreckoningPete_B: I don't know now for sure, I will reboot to debian to check, and I will ask the administrator for the exact information
Vasistharoland_: in the case of the cable that the dog chewed up, I would cut it in half and make two cables out of it.
(if I had a crimping tool, that is)
roland_hmm i have
Pete_Bmisreckoning: in my experience I would recommend trusting network-manager-gnome, it tends to be really good.
roland_a cutter
misreckoningso see ya' in minute
(yes I will try to reconfigure ndiswrapper)
roland_maybe if i would have a shielded twisted pair cable it might not have happened
who knows
grumbeldoes anybody know a good free single player FPS for linux (beside the doom/quake shareware stuff)?
Vasistharoland_: someone once told me that if a cable is coiled or bent in certain places, and if it's used like that for many months or years, the wires can build up a little charge oriented in that direction, and if you re-bend it it can stop working ... dunno if it's true.
roland_hmm it makes sense
btw phiber optic cabling is more reliable than the regular utps ?
Vasistha*fiber
roland_sry fiber
Vasisthaheh .. I have no idea. I've never used fiber, myself. I'm sure you can read about it on the internet, though
jetxet, tremulous, ioterror
Fetrovskysomebody tell a joke
=/
VasisthaFetrovsky: two peanuts were walking down the street and one was assalted
Fetrovskyhahahahah
taht's a good one >)
Vasisthaand here I was expecting I should be smacked for that
Fetrovskyhmm
are you a guy?
actionVasistha gives Fetrovsky "/who"
Vasisthagives Fetrovsky "/who"
actionFetrovsky gives Vasistha "/me"
Fetrovskygives Vasistha "/me"
Crypticfortuneroland_: i think that depends on what your deifnition of "reliable"
Fetrovskyoh you're a guy
roland_reliable as in "physical"
if it can resist bending and bad conditions
actionFetrovsky smacks Vasistha in the shoulder
Fetrovskysmacks Vasistha in the shoulder
roland_better than utp
less than optimal conditions
Crypticfortuneroland_: oh, in that case i'd guess UTP, but fiber's so expensive i've never really dared treat it roughly...
Vasistharoland_: well, fiber of course has the limitation that it can't be bent aroudn a very small angle. all curving must be gradual
roland_if the calbe is more physically resistent
ok
is there a health related channel on freenode?
