01:07:41 <esowiki> [[Hello world program in esoteric languages]] M https://esolangs.org/w/index.php?diff=61363&oldid=60890 * Zane * (+309)
01:09:26 * kmc is a prepper and would be fine for 1-2 weeks at home with no power and no going out for supplies
01:11:59 <kmc> lots of water, canned and bulk food, gas-canister camp stove (outdoor use only!), various battery packs and LED lights and a zillion ham radios
01:12:14 <kmc> granted, it doesn't get very cold here, I have no way to heat the apartment as a whole
01:53:07 <Hooloovoo> how do you power the radios long-term?
01:53:39 <Hooloovoo> or is there a plan for times to use them/etc with the local hams
01:56:05 <kmc> there is not a plan regarding times, that I know of
01:56:44 <kmc> if I needed to get a message out, I would try several frequencies and repeaters that I know are popular and/or are involved with emergency stuff
01:57:01 <kmc> if I want to get an idea of what's going on, I would just scan
01:57:21 <kmc> as for power I have a variety of battery packs laying around, and some solar panels (tho most of them are in off-site storage atm)
02:03:23 <Sgeo__> When DOS games output 3d as interleaved scan lines, can I assume 1 scan line = 1 pixel?
02:10:47 <kmc> I even have a hand-crank radio, AM/FM broadcast receive only, but it has a USB power output and in *theory* I can charge one of the ham radios from it
02:10:55 <kmc> no idea how much cranking would be required
02:11:03 <kmc> it must get old
02:11:08 <kmc> (well, AM/FM and NOAA weather radio)
02:11:10 <pikhq> kmc: I'm not sure that quite counts as "prepper".
02:11:25 <kmc> because I don't have an underground bunker with 500 boxes of ammunition?
02:11:39 <pikhq> I mean, you are well prepared for an emergency, but that's not "prepped to survive for months, or the fall of western civilization"
02:11:55 <pikhq> That's more... prepped well to survive if an earthquake happens in the Bay.
02:11:57 <kmc> it's still more than most people :P
02:12:04 <pikhq> Oh, for sure.

02:23:34 -!- FreeFull has quit.
02:23:48 <Hooloovoo> Sgeo__, usually, though sometimes pixels are non-square
02:24:10 <Hooloovoo> because with CRTs, pixels can be however big the graphics card decides
02:25:41 <kmc> on B&W CRTs sure
02:26:13 <Hooloovoo> as long as you're below the dot pitch, it's fine on color CRTs too
02:26:28 <kmc> on color, I think you are still limited by the color mask
02:26:32 <kmc> hm
02:26:53 <Hooloovoo> right, but *most* color crts are good enough to play DOS games
02:27:06 <Hooloovoo> at least, any color computer monitors
02:28:01 <pikhq> Yeah. In principle a DOS game _could_ use whatever graphics interfaces it likes to go super high res, but in practice DOS games only went as far as 640x480 (and often less)
02:28:34 <kmc> tektronix made some interesting non-mask-based color CTRs: https://hackaday.com/2019/01/17/sharpest-color-crt-display-is-monochrome-plus-a-trick/
02:29:14 <Sgeo__> I want to convert interleaved to SBS, each row I guess alternates left and right?
02:29:14 <kmc> it's a monochrome CRT with some LCD-controlled color filters in front of it
02:29:18 <Sgeo__> row of pixels?
02:29:25 <Sgeo__> If DOSBox were to be at original size
02:32:05 <kmc> tek also made storage tubes, where you draw vectors with the electron beam and they stay there through some kind of magic
02:32:28 <kmc> cool demo with an amazing retro-computing vibe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IztxeoHhoyM
02:33:25 <kmc> these were used for CAD workstations for a time, when it was too expensive to have the computer constantly re-drawing all vectors
02:42:29 <Hooloovoo> oh, that's really cool
02:42:35 <Hooloovoo> I have a couple of the storage toobs
02:42:48 <kmc> ooh!
02:42:52 <kmc> how'd you come by those
02:43:05 <kmc> storage CRTs were also used as RAM by some *really* old computers
02:43:17 <Hooloovoo> the university garbage
02:43:22 <Hooloovoo> yeah, williams tubes
02:43:38 <kmc> predating core memory, predating even delay lines I think
02:43:40 <Hooloovoo> there's a display that I walk by every day with one in it
02:43:51 <kmc> or contemporary... I guess delay lines were developed for radar first
02:43:52 <Hooloovoo> I think delay lines were first, but I'm not positive
02:43:53 <kmc> awesome
02:44:01 <kmc> ever been to the computer history museum in mountain view?
02:44:55 <Hooloovoo> no, haven't been to SF in too long
02:45:03 <Hooloovoo> I'll be in palo alto for the summer
02:45:08 <kmc> neat
02:46:19 <Hooloovoo> (me and/or my roommate) have a 603a and I have a 7000 series scope at my parents house
02:48:01 <Hooloovoo> there was one thing that we found which we couldn't just liberate, it's going to the LCM in Seattle
02:48:51 <Hooloovoo> trying no to share many details

03:28:36 <j4cbo> yessss
03:28:56 <j4cbo> a friend has a tek 7000 storage scope
03:29:24 <j4cbo> with regular time base and amp modules but also a 7D02 debugger
03:35:56 <pikhq> That museum is pretty sweet.
03:36:17 <kmc> I've not been there
03:36:20 <kmc> but it sounds great
03:36:34 <kmc> there's also the Museum of Communications right
03:36:43 <kmc> I went there when I was a small child
03:36:46 <kmc> don't remember much
03:40:55 <Hooloovoo> I have a couple IRC friends who volunteer there
03:41:06 <Hooloovoo> and it sounds pretty cool

18:41:02 <fizzie> There's electricity again, but the fungot box doesn't have the "turn on after recovering power" option, so fungot outage will persist until I can reach the power switch.

18:49:26 <fizzie> I don't know if you can really call that "having time on our side", really.

18:57:28 <kmc> perhaps "we've bought some time" would be better

18:58:14 <kmc> I do not think the power company here would be so forthcoming about things
18:58:24 <kmc> they have more of a "fuck you" attitude
18:58:52 <kmc> a privately traded for-profit company, which exists to make dividends for its shareholders, which has a legal monopoly to provide electrical and gas service
18:59:19 <kmc> they've been fined many times for misbehavior but their only way to recoup that money is to raise rates so...
19:00:19 <kmc> they went bankrupt this year, but still paid out huge bonuses

20:31:51 <kmc> I added an 8-port Powerpole distribution block and a Powerpole to car accessory socket cable. So I can run both of my mobile radios as well as a USB charger or other car accessory from a single battery pack
20:32:12 <kmc> that's on top of the big lead-acid batteries and solar panels
