[20:00] Time's come...
[20:00] Welcome to the Geekzone Weekly Chat. As usual I want to proceed with a bit of administrivia and then proceed with the chat
[20:00] (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/administrivia)
[20:00] * Cokemaster changes topic to 'Geekzone Community Chat | The Weekly Chat is on now. '
[20:00] First you are all invited to look at the Geekcam (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/geekcam.asp) and see my rough face during this chat. The camera updates every 2
[20:00] minutes (but if I am in front of this camera now the image shouldn't change much). And no, I am not naked or in robes...
[20:00] Next week I will not attend the chat. I've received an invitation from Intel to lunch with some big guys in Sydney to hear from them about the Intel's Core Microarchitecture. I will fly out to cold Sydney on Tuesday morning, have lunch, some beer and fly back to sunny Wellington arriving here at midnight.

[20:01] The Geekzone Blogs are now updated with new code that allows everyone using the service to load their own custom CSS templates. The platform allows you to choose the standard template, or create your own on a staging area. Once it's good to go live you can copy and paste from the staging area to the custom area - and continue coding more stuff. Only you can see the staging CSS template so you "surprise" your readers when it's rea

[20:01] [ljbade] : The Leithal Weapon is here!
[20:01] Also added to the Geekzone Blogs is a "Byline". It adds "By [First] [Last]" to the posts. You can choose to have this at the top or at the end of the post. The reason we have done that is because Google is our friend, but we always have to help it find us. This byline will allow a better indexing of the Geekzone Blogs, and it will make it easier for people to Google your name (isn't that right Juha?)
[20:01] The Geekzone Conference 2006 will happen, most likely in September. I am currently entertaining the idea of charging a nominal participation fee, probably about $15, to cover some basic expenses. But I am also trying to bring one or two sponsors to help on this - so you never know, it could even be free.
[20:01] The Geekzone Conference is a great way to meet other folks, discuss gadgets, technology, fight for your passion - and do some trolling live!

[20:01] Why is this a "conference"? Because unlike last year we will probably add a couple of sessions about technology, blogging, and other geek stuff as a "pre-dinner" event. This way it's much more fun. If you have suggestions for topics, please forward these to me: freitasm at the domain you all know.
[20:02] As always I want to say thanks to our moderators, Tony, Chiefie and Brad for their help on Geekzone and the upcoming events (if they choose to help us, of course ;0).

[20:04] wheres my voice tony?
[20:04] ok
[20:04] So, Telecom has announced their "intention" to deploy EVDO REV A by Xmas... Why is taking Vodafone so long to release HSDPA?
[20:04] ok
[20:04] i dont know james
[20:04] :-P
[20:04] good news there
[20:04] I thought HSDPA was due by the end of the year?
[20:04] * tonyhughes sets mode: +v JAMMAN21110
[20:04] I mean, 18 months ago they said they had one of the first HSDPA Nokia sites and testbed in the world - and nothing so far...
[20:04] rev b and i will drop the landine
[20:04] I saw the Telecom post
[20:04] VF got something up their sleeve?
[20:04] this EVDO rev A... will it work wif old EVDO phones... or will you need a new one
[20:04] wonder how many areas they will be doing this year?
[20:04] You'll need new ones
[20:04] No, you need new hardware.
[20:04] new hardware'
[20:05] Initially only PC CARDS and mini PCI will be available for EVDO Rev A, accordin to sources.
[20:05] though Telecom reps and dealers were initially told otherwise
[20:05] (Jama!!)
[20:05] damn it.... y cant they design phones wif future upgrades in mind...
[20:05] Money makers
[20:05] and there are many contracted customers thinking their Harrier/Apache/Sierra card will work
[20:05] $$
[20:05] Why have upgradable phones when you can sell new ones for more $$$
[20:05] This is the chicken/egg thing: won't make until market is here, market is not here until people can buy phones...
[20:05] mini PCI - nice
[20:06] whats the name?
[20:06] is it an Apache-esque device?
[20:06] is it being marketed under the
[20:06] !google HTC rev a cdma
[20:06] is it being marketed under the HTC brand name?
[20:06] damn.... it would only take a bit of sodlering to upgrade my phone yes/no? my calc can be sped up by replacing a capcitator!
[20:06] [ Google ] #1 Evolution-Data Optimized - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EVDO )
[20:06] [ Google ] Desc: It is standardized by 3GPP2, as part of the CDMA family of standards. ... The successor to the first revision of the standard, 1xEV-DO Rev. ...
[20:06] Google is your friend - it will also recommend your name to the Corporate Policy Police.
[20:06] what will the actually (not theory) speed of rav a be?

[20:07] no one knows till its operational under normal loads
[20:07] the geek is smiling! (webcam)
[20:07] thats not too bad, i would be happy with 2 :)
[20:08] Whats the latency like?
[20:08] you need to focus that webcam by the way... really fuzzy atm
[20:08] 3.1 Mbps...
[20:08] better uploading than cheap ADSL
[20:08] The camera is crap - I will get a Logitech Fusion soon (1.3mpixels) just for your delight...
[20:09] hmmm interesting that in the news there is buzz about vodafone joining the ADSL club...
[20:09] There hasn't been many canon shells being fired from the Voda camp lately
[20:09] makes sense, if only to "own" (pwn?) customers
[20:09] The Stuff article also mentioned the possibility of Woosh offering an ADSL service, but I can't imagine that.
[20:09] i better not be near any children when i try rev a then!
[20:10] Vodafone offering it is slightly more feasible if they need an Internet offering to complement their proposed 'local' phone service.
[20:10] "ADSL Club" means offering the same ADSL as anyone else, with the same limits, right?
[20:10] i would think so freitasm
[20:10] The only difference will be service. I think price-wise these ISPs will all charge the same - like petrol companies.
[20:10] well Telecon does control ADSL... so yes freitasm
[20:10] true
[20:10] for now .. so were told
[20:10] hermes
[20:10] Well, for two years or so.... they will
[20:11] freitasm: Yes, that's why I can't imagine Woosh going for it. Their wireless infrastructure gives them a point of difference
[20:11] See? Someone posted on Geekzone that TNZ is not offering services to him, so he asked IHUG and IHUG blamed TNZ.
[20:11] 3 - 4+ really
[20:11] A pain. Why don't these other ISP implement their infrastructure? Because it's easier to play the blame game.
[20:11] Indeed
[20:11] Enough of my rants. I have to fight Fairfax and Trademe...
[20:11] Especially when it's an Aussie company who can't be bothered investing in New Zealand.
[20:11] lol, i love it, any time i have a prob, with ihug, its....thats tc's fault!
[20:11] they know that they are bulffing about there unbundling plans!
[20:12] They're after a quick profit
[20:12] no luck yet Mauricio?

[20:12] Hmm
[20:12] So any luck getting your images removed from Trade me?
[20:12] at least TCL bothered to build a FASTER network while they could
[20:12] Oh, Aussie!!! I forgot to mention during the introduction: B R A Z I L 2 X 0 Australia....
[20:12] where are these images?
[20:12] lol
[20:12] go Brazil

[20:15] thought it might be
[20:15] in response to his/her comment
[20:15] theres a copyright notice at the bottom of every GZ page.....
[20:15] whats it say?
[20:15] exactly
[20:15] even ive noticed the copyright images
[20:15] egzachary
[20:15] "What do you mean no evidence of copyright? What more copyright is needed then my own name and photograph in one of the pictures used? Please remove all pictures that were taken from Geekzone. Our copyright is on http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?contentid=684 and we retain the copyright on those images. Thanks "
[20:16] have you found out who the GZ member is yet?
[20:16] Nope. But didn't look for.
[20:16] how many active members does GZ have?
[20:16] get their IP and DDoS them! thatll teach em to mess wif geeks
[20:17] About 23000 registered users.
[20:17] dose it have to be a GZ member?
[20:17] active = log in and do stuff, not just forums

[20:20] there's two ways of doing it. one is in the header data, the other is within the data streams itself. it causes some minor image degradation, but *Shrug*

[20:42] bradstewart is a dirty troll
[20:42] They do not need to win by 10 - just need to go to the next round without showing the game, right?
[20:42] 2 points in real football is an embarrassing amount to lose by
[20:42] Make sure the final is a surprise.
