Update: Added Names

[20:00] [freitasm] Hello guys!
[20:00] [freitasm] It's showtime!
[20:00] [JAMMAN2110] CAPS ARE MINE!
[20:00] [freitasm] Welcome everyone to the weekly chat!
[20:01] [Lokinz-berry] pretty wasted trying to drive this blackberry
[20:01] [pebbles] what type of caps?
[20:01] [freitasm] The not-so organised one...
[20:01] [pebbles] oh, did you get the car?!
[20:01] [JAMMAN2110] MF should +m
[20:01] * freitasm sets mode: +m
[20:02] [freitasm] I would like to thank you everyone who helped us during the Geekzone 2006, as well as everyone who managed to attend the event!
[20:02] [freitasm] I actually ran out of time, and so I couldn't make some announcements.
[20:02] [freitasm] I was going to introduce some new features on Geekzone, but will do so in the next weekly chat.
[20:02] [freitasm] This way we have some more time to test some stuff here.
[20:03] [freitasm] I was also thinking about having two events each year
[20:03] [freitasm] Something like Geekzone Autumn and Geekzone Spring.
[20:03] [freitasm] And adding perhaps a parallel number of sessions, hands on labs and demos from sponsors.
[20:03] * bradstewart sets mode: -m
[20:03] [JAMMAN2110] nice! ! !
[20:04] [bradstewart] sounds good
[20:04] [freitasm] Go on!
[20:04] [NokiaRocks] cant wait for more GZ events!
[20:04] [freitasm] This one actually took some time to organise.
[20:04] [JAMMAN2110] If you need someone to annoy the crap out of people (eg linux commies) I offeryou my services
[20:04] [NokiaRocks] you're up the task MF
[20:04] [freitasm] I had not much idea of how to convince sponsors! It was hard work.
[20:05] [freitasm] Like that one who didn't want to sponsor even with 6 months notice.
[20:05] [mike_1] happy to help in the future mf
[20:05] [NokiaRocks] hows wellington installfest comming along?
[20:05] [bradstewart] oh well theyve seen hoe good this yeah was...
[20:05] [bradstewart] how*
[20:05] [bradstewart] will be easier from now on
[20:05] [NokiaRocks] wheres tony tonight?
[20:06] [bradstewart] his mac probably died...
[20:06] [NokiaRocks] lol good call
[20:06] [freitasm] I actually know that someone from VFNZ has just joined Air NZ. So perhaps we could have some out of town speakers and have Air NZ sponsonring flights? I will investigate that
[20:06] [Lokinz-berry] lol
[20:06] [bradstewart] and we havent seen cokemaster for a while
[20:06] [NokiaRocks] fly all gz members to gold coast?
[20:06] [JAMMAN2110] lol
[20:06] [bradstewart] sounds good
[20:06] [freitasm] www.geekzone.co.nz/geekcam.asp
[20:06] [JAMMAN2110] cokemaster is BORED with irc!
[20:06] [bradstewart] nah, bring them all to wanaka
[20:06] [bradstewart] he is?
[20:06] [NokiaRocks] wanaka is a hole
[20:06] [JAMMAN2110] send us all to gore!
[20:06] [JAMMAN2110] yes he is
[20:07] [mike_1] nothing in wanaka
[20:07] [freitasm] That's another question. Should we have both events in Wellington?
[20:07] [bradstewart] yeah there is
[20:07] [bradstewart] no!
[20:07] [NokiaRocks] yes
[20:07] [mike_1] ?
[20:07] [bradstewart] need one down south
[20:07] [NokiaRocks] all events in wellington
[20:07] [JAMMAN2110] WELLINGTON!!!!
[20:07] [NokiaRocks] its more centralised
[20:07] [JAMMAN2110] GZ cannot leave its HQ :P
[20:07] [NokiaRocks] nz's technology capital
[20:08] [freitasm] Wellington is good because there is some infrastructure and I can do things because I live here. Doing in another town requires lots of talking and we are not sure of the venue, resources, etc.
[20:08] [JAMMAN2110] that + they have TCL CABLE!
[20:08] [freitasm] Do you know if there's Internet in Wanaka?
[20:08] [bradstewart] yes there is
[20:08] [JAMMAN2110] I doubt it
[20:08] [bradstewart] adsl even
[20:08] [JAMMAN2110] lol
[20:08] [freitasm] No, not tubes. I N T E R N E T!
[20:08] [mike_1] what are the advantages of tcl cable]
[20:08] [JAMMAN2110] pfft adsl is crap
[20:08] [NokiaRocks] lol tubes
[20:08] [JAMMAN2110] TCL cable is awesome
[20:08] [bradstewart] they have evdo
[20:08] [NokiaRocks] cable is faster
[20:08] [NokiaRocks] not interlaced
[20:09] [bradstewart] interleaved?
[20:09] [JAMMAN2110] lol
[20:09] [NokiaRocks] no interlaced with telecom workers
[20:09] [freitasm] Mike, for example I have 10Mbps at home and I do a full Geekzone backup (1GB) every night to my server at home (actually two backups, the second to another server in AKL)
[20:09] [freitasm] Try this on ADSL ;P
[20:09] [bradstewart] lol @ 128Kbps
[20:09] [JAMMAN2110] ADSL would cark it
[20:09] [freitasm] I have my HDD fully backed up to a server in the USA. Try this at 128Kbps.
[20:09] [NokiaRocks] TCL are apparently releasing new plans soon
[20:09] [bradstewart] ADSL is bad enough trying to upload 2Mb
[20:09] [freitasm] Back to the topic.
[20:10] [mike_1] my adsl is great and it ony costs me 10 bucks a month
[20:10] [freitasm] We just scared Mike away
[20:10] [freitasm] ROTFLOL!
[20:10] [JAMMAN2110] no we didnt :P
[20:10] [freitasm] ROTFLOL!
[20:10] [freitasm] ROTFLOL!
[20:10] [freitasm] ROTFLOL!
[20:10] [freitasm] ROTFLOL!
[20:10] [NokiaRocks] spammer
[20:10] * suzi has joined #geekzone
[20:10] [freitasm] That's funny, sorry
[20:10] [Jp9] yeah, wish i could get cable here. :(
[20:10] [bradstewart] jam, calm down
[20:10] [freitasm] Back to the topic.
[20:10] * JAMMAN2110 :)s at brad
[20:10] [NokiaRocks] i want 100mb/s cable with no data limit
[20:11] * JAMMAN2110 sides with NR on that one though
[20:11] [NokiaRocks] so i'll move to s.korea
[20:11] [mike_1] i await revc and bye bye adsl and cable
[20:11] [freitasm] Sorry, I don't think you will get more than 25Mbps. And not even sure of this. Back can't say more.
[20:11] [freitasm] Rev C. Let's See. 2009.
[20:11] * pebbles has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
[20:11] [freitasm] Ok. Until there we do nothing?
[20:11] [NokiaRocks] reva should be enough to ditch the wire
[20:12] [freitasm] http://www.geekzone.co.nz/freitasm/1203
[20:12] [bradstewart] nah not really
[20:12] [bradstewart] need at least Rev B for that
[20:12] [NokiaRocks] depends what you use internet for
[20:12] [bradstewart] yeah
[20:13] [bradstewart] i'll be happy with fullrate adsl and capless plans
[20:13] [bradstewart] till NGN arrives
[20:13] [NokiaRocks] so what are the prizes tonight?
[20:13] * suzi has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
[20:13] [NokiaRocks] NGN will be delayed until NNGN arrives
[20:13] [mike_1] i do not have the need for big bandwidth
[20:13] * Lokinz-berry needs a boss burger. JAMMAN!

[20:15] [bradstewart] good evening nathan
[20:15] [NokiaRocks] Nathan: whats the haps with installfest?
[20:15] [freitasm] I have a few tshirts here to give away.
[20:15] [freitasm] Hello Nathan
[20:15] [nathanmercer] howdy all
[20:15] [Lokinz-berry] ill take a t :)
[20:15] [nathanmercer] install fest is easy to organise, free copies of Vista isn't so easy ;)
[20:15] [pebbles] I have a + may want to get rid of it
[20:15] [Jp9] guessing this is the vista installfest we're referring to, not the linux one? ;p
[20:15] [mike_1] screen capture and recording
[20:16] * NokiaRocks sets mode: -v pebbles
[20:16] [NokiaRocks] come on nathan, i thought you were up to the task
[20:16] [bradstewart] after the impressive speech recognition display at GZ06 i went and bought a new headset
[20:16] [freitasm] Got an email today from Hadley - all from speech rec from start to end. He bought a Microsoft VX 6600 during the weekend just for that. And because of the 1.3 megapixel
[20:16] [NokiaRocks] and i tried to get my line in port to work :p
[20:16] [nathanmercer] cool, I hope its working well for ya.  Speech reco rocks
[20:17] [bradstewart] yeah apparently buying a $35 DSE headset not such a great idea
[20:17] [JAMMAN2110] its working well for me, using handwriting recognition before too :D
[20:17] [freitasm] Hadley said (really, all translated) it worked well, but it took him an hour to train. But it works :)
[20:17] [Lokinz-berry] yeah man it rocks
[20:17] [pebbles] so... am I the only one lacking here?
[20:17] [NokiaRocks] my laptop mic works like crap
[20:17] [bradstewart] the headset didnt even last a day
[20:17] [nathanmercer] yep laptop mics are not so good
[20:17] [nathanmercer] some are OK - if you get a lappy with an Array Mic with AEC
[20:17] [freitasm] Pebbles, during the GZ06 everyone got a DVD with Windows Vista RC1. The most impressive feature Nathan (from Microsoft) showed was the speech recognition. And everyone is trying that.
[20:18] [freitasm] Ask your boyfriend to install it.
[20:18] [nathanmercer] but they're really only just starting to come out now
[20:18] [freitasm] Where is he?
[20:18] [pebbles] he won;t
[20:18] [NokiaRocks] for some reason the line in port isnt working on my laptop
[20:18] [Jp9] apparently the ones with the echo cancellation on the new toshies aren't bad either
[20:18] [freitasm] Array mics on some tablet Pcs.
[20:18] [bradstewart] i got my technet rc1 dvds in the mail yesterday..... is there any way i can get a vista rc1 case for them?
[20:18] [freitasm] Like the Motion ones.
[20:18] [nathanmercer] Brad, I will have Vista RC1 DVD packs this week, maybe next
[20:18] [bradstewart] oh awesome
[20:18] [mike_1] can i get vista?
[20:18] [NokiaRocks] cool
[20:19] [nathanmercer] there will be a new build (post RC1, RTM build tree) out for download on connect.microsoft.com in a few days time too
[20:19] [bradstewart] i liked the beta 2 dvds in the GZ06 case, the ones i got sent out from connect were boring silver ones
[20:19] [bradstewart] yeah i heard
[20:19] [bradstewart] will be good
[20:19] [nathanmercer] RC1 DVDs will be the same printing
[20:19] [JAMMAN2110] nathanmercer, have you used FTP with Vista?
[20:19] [nathanmercer] i will BRB, got to pickup GF
[20:19] [bradstewart] my rc1 dvds were blue and green
[20:20] [bradstewart] and got silver server ones
