Botjinxing the Interwebs

Su-Shee ok this is the 10th time numpy timesouts while downloading its stupid module - why does that NEVER happen to me with CPAN? not in a DECADE?
Botje snakes on the network cables.
Su-Shee great thanks, now you jinxed it and it timed out again.
Botje happy to oblige.
Botje tuesdays make computers mopy.
Su-Shee someone beat Botje, please.
Botje I'll take all of you on at quake 3!
rindolf Su-Shee: what are your computer's SPECs?
BinGOs MAXIMUM ARMOUR
Su-Shee rindolf: what?
Su-Shee rindolf: what kind of question is that?
rindolf Su-Shee: like P4-2.4GHZ, Core i3, Pentium 3, etc.
Su-Shee rindolf: are you kidding me? what does that have to do with timeouts while downloading a file?
rindolf Su-Shee: no idea.
rindolf Su-Shee: it shouldn't.
Su-Shee rindolf: then why are you asking such a question?
rindolf Su-Shee: maybe use a proxy.
rindolf Su-Shee: I mean a proxy on localhost or something.
Su-Shee rindolf: and what is a proxy on localhost going to proxy before I even have the file it should proxy later on? :)
Su-Shee Botje: DON'T MOVE. IT'S /(%
Su-Shee 78%
rindolf Su-Shee: I mean let python use the proxy and the proxy will download it in a better way.
Botje Su-Shee: IT'S OKAY, THE FILE WILL BE CORRUPT ANYWAY.
rindolf Su-Shee: and cache it too.
rindolf Botje: heh.
rindolf Botje: you're Evil.
rindolf Botje: will you join my Evil Reindeer Evil Conspiracy?
Botje I managed to blow up the same CD burn process three times by touching my friend's screen.
Botje burn burn burn *touch screen* buffer underrun.
rindolf Oooh... CDs - such low tech.
rindolf CDs are so 90s.
Su-Shee rindolf: says the man who suggests installing a proxy for a single file..
Botje IN OUR TIME WE EXCHANGED DATA BY PUTTING PITS IN CIRCULAR PLASTIC DISKS AND WE WERE HAPPY ABOUT IT!
Su-Shee rindolf: and asks how fast my computer is in 2013...
Su-Shee Botje: YOU LOST I HAVE MY FUCKING NUMPY
rindolf Su-Shee: NASA still has some VAXes.
Botje Su-Shee: UNPACK IT FIRST. THERE IS A SURPRISE IN THERE.
rindolf Botje: heh.
rindolf Botje++
Botje (does it show that I'm really frustrated with this paper i'm reviewing?)
rindolf No NUMPY FOR YOU. MUAHAHAH
Su-Shee Botje: on my numpy download: indeed.
Su-Shee Botje: now I'm going for scipy.. hold still and don't move.
Botje Su-Shee: I'm spinning around in my chair. try and stop me.
Botje alanjf: too much effort to keep track of.
Su-Shee Botje: now that is easily done with a little violence.. ;)
* rindolf kills Botje so he won't move.
Botje but but but
Botje newton's first law!
rindolf Botje: maybe your ghost can move.
Botje I keep spinning for a while!
Su-Shee Botje: "you can't kill Botje" isn't newton's first law.
Su-Shee it's not even the 5th.
Su-Shee Botje: GO AWAY FROM MY WLAN.
Botje Su-Shee: YOU MIS-SPELLED LAWN.
Botje Su-Shee: MAYBE IF YOU STOP SHAKING YOUR CANE
Su-Shee Botje: IF I ASK MST I'M SURE HE WILL HELP ME WITH SOME CLASSIC BRITISH BOARDING SCHOOL NAVY STYLE CANE-ING..
Su-Shee dammit this python shit requires work.
tm604 oh wait my irc was stuck, Su-Shee's clearly broken the internet again
Su-Shee tm604: it's python's fault. and botje's. not mine.
tm604 python is correct by definition, everyone else is wrong
Su-Shee lol.. that is amazing... pip install scipy requires some library called blas - but that's not available in pip.. reading up on how to install it, I seriously find fortran complile lines to call by hand.. WHAT THE HELL?
