00:26 drnoe      well good night folks
01:09 jcamins    The macaroons are tasty, but slightly less than cohesive.
01:09 jcamins    To put it mildly.
01:10 dcook      What sort of macaroons did you make?
01:10 trea       macaroons can be really fickle to make
01:10 trea       pretty subject to humidity and other factors
01:10 jcamins    dcook: just regular macaroons.
01:10 wizzyrea   the coconut ones or the eggwhite ones
01:10 dcook      I meant the stacks or the little cookie type things
01:10 jcamins    Coconut.
01:10 jcamins    Oh.
01:10 jcamins    Haystacks.
01:10 dcook      Yumm
01:11 jcamins    The egg white ones are called macarons. wizzyrea taught me that earlier.
01:11 wizzyrea   I make raw ones now - coconut, ground almonds, honey, a bit of milk
01:11 wizzyrea   they are yum
01:11 trea       they are quite good
01:12 jcamins    You know what's delicious?
01:12 jcamins    Goat cheese-date truffles.
01:12 wizzyrea   anything with coconut?
01:12 wizzyrea   oh, well yes
01:12 jcamins    That too.
01:12 trea       i'd imagine so
01:13 wizzyrea   http://www.blogilates.com/recipe-index/macaroons-vs-macarons-wait-what (ignore the silliness of that post and skip straight to the recipe)
01:14 jcamins    That's my stand-by raw recipe.
01:15 bag        Sonja and I joined a fish-share thingy here in SB…  once a week fresh fish caught off the coast
01:15 bag        we got Salmon last night!  amazing
01:15 wizzyrea   nice!
01:16 trea       mmm salmon
01:16 jcamins    wizzyrea: looks like sweetened coconut?
01:16 wizzyrea   she used sweetened, I used dessicated
01:16 wizzyrea   good either way
01:17 jcamins    http://www.buzzfeed.com/daves4/26-pictures-that-will-make-you-irrationally-angry
01:17 bag        jcamins: we've done goat-cheese wrapped in dates, and then wrapped in kale - and was actually quite good
01:18 bag        oh I am sending that link to Sonja!
01:18 wizzyrea   reminds me of "you had one job
01:18 trea       you had one job!
01:18 trea       ^
01:19 cjh        heh
01:19 cjh        jcamins: awesome
01:19 trea       aka, "how to upset the OCD afflicted in your life."
01:20 * dcook    perks up
01:20 dcook      Oh  my...
01:20 bag        where's 25 :P
01:20 trea       that's the best part
01:21 cjh        heh
01:21 dcook      http://thingsorganizedneatly.tumblr.com/
01:21 wizzyrea   http://hadonejob.com/
01:21 bag        I did try being cute leaving the ? out :P
01:21 cjh        dcook: ahhh, calming order.
01:22 dcook      :D
01:23 eythian    http://www.geoguessr.com/
01:24 wizzyrea   9926 points. no idea if that's good or bad
01:25 jcamins    Better than I'm going to do.
01:25 eythian    fairly good. I think I got 8000 or so
01:25 jcamins    Oh, wait.
01:25 jcamins    You can rotate.
01:27 eythian    also move along the road
01:27 eythian    > You missed with 1.815 km which gave 3168 points
01:28 eythian    so close!
01:28 wizzyrea   !
01:28 wizzyrea   that's quite impressive
01:28 eythian    (I could see a bus that has "Aberdeen" on the back.)
01:28 trea       yeah, my 2nd guess was off by .98 km
01:28 trea       :P
01:28 cjh        heh I ended up in a desert, no road signage or anything.
01:29 trea       8185 pts. that's not bad
01:29 bag        7620
01:30 jcamins    wtf? Every single one was in Australia!
01:30 bag        Mine had a whaddaburger sign
01:30 eythian    > You got 10736 points in total.
01:30 bag        I guessed florida
01:30 wizzyrea   10333 the 2nd time round
01:30 eythian    It does give a disproprtionate amount in Australia
01:30 bag        I was way off - of course it was texas
01:31 wizzyrea   you've bested me this time eythian
01:31 eythian    Of note is that AU and NZ roadsigns look similar enough to be easy to confuse :)
01:33 wizzyrea   hehe
01:33 wizzyrea   spain looks like everywhere.
01:33 wizzyrea   so do the balkan nations.
01:34 jcamins    Argh! It was Portugal not Brazil.
01:36 cjh        heh
01:38 jcamins    Jeez I suck at this game.
01:39 bag        me too
01:39 bag        I can't break 10k to save my life
01:39 bag        but I do have to say it's really cool
01:41 * dcook    is booking his plane tickets to KohaCon13 at this moment!
01:41 dcook      Exciting!!!
01:41 wizzyrea   confetti!
01:41 wahanui    o/ '`'`'`'`'`'`'`'`
01:42 dcook      Oooh. Air Canada remembered my search settings. Nice one, AC.
01:53 * dcook    wonders why an airline needs to know his gender...
01:54 rangi      true
01:54 dcook      Hmm TSA apparently
01:54 dcook      Oh USA...
01:54 rangi      ah yeah
01:54 dcook      When travelling to, from or via the U.S., or on a flight that will be flying over the continental U.S. (excluding flights between two points in Canada), passengers must provide their gender and date of birth. TSA Privacy Notice.
01:54 rangi      terrorists are always men donchaknow
01:54 dcook      Yup
01:54 dcook      They even have "Redress numbers"
01:54 dcook      In case you share the same name as a terrorist or watched person
01:55 rangi      that would suck
01:55 eythian    the standard procedure was to be or become a congressman so you had the clout to get your name removed.
01:55 eythian    So I guess phonenumbers are an improvement.
01:56 bag        yeah TSA is pretty crazy
01:56 bag        sorry USA TSA is pretty crazy
01:56 eythian    "This person is such a risk we can't let him travel, but not enough that we could arrest him."
01:56 eythian    bag: I think only the US has a TSA :)
01:56 bag        thanks
01:57 bag        I was saying - sadly of course usa tsa thinks they are the most important…
01:57 bag        and then
01:57 eythian    Well, there is The Scout Association in the UK...
01:57 bag        dumbasses
01:57 bag        :P
01:58 eythian    Oh, and a polish metal band.
01:58 bag        oh that's awesome
01:58 bag        remind me the next time I fly - to ask them if they are in a polish metal band
01:58 rangi      heh
01:59 bag        TSA is dumb - every country has screening and every country has got problems - you don't need to pretend ……  (sorry I got tired of talking about it)
02:00 eythian    actually, you can fly within NZ without screening.
02:00 eythian    It's like getting on a bus.
02:00 bag        within
02:00 bag        but if I came there - they screen me right?  and they aren't that hard…  you have something on this list - you can't bring it in
02:00 eythian    yeah
02:01 eythian    most of that is biosecurity
02:01 bag        TSA are dumbasses :P
02:01 wizzyrea   ^
02:01 bag        BUT I would love the within airplane flight like a bus flight
02:01 wizzyrea   don't try to bring in outdoor gear, fresh food of any kind, or too much medicine, and you'll pretty much be golden.
02:01 bag        s/flight/trip
02:02 eythian    if you bring in muddy shoes, they wash them for you. That's handy to know.
02:02 rangi      some flights get security
02:02 rangi      anything to auckland
02:02 wizzyrea   and if you do have it, declare it. because they don't get mad about it.
02:02 eythian    rangi: not anything to auckland, just some
02:02 wizzyrea   if you declare and have to pitch it, they at least don't fine you :P
02:02 bag        eythian++ declare and they dont' get mad - that's the key :)
02:02 jcamins    10357!
02:02 eythian    if the plane is capable of being hijacked and going to Australia, then it has to be screened.
02:03 wizzyrea   oh so planes over a certain size
02:03 eythian    certain range, but yeah
02:03 wizzyrea   well size... bigger plane = longer haul
02:04 wizzyrea   though you can't even land the biggest ones in wellington.
02:04 bag        hmm.. back track - ok so all of the "officers" that you deal with there - view this as normal procedure…  I like that…
02:04 wizzyrea   it simply can't be done
02:04 bag        TSA get there panties in a wad
02:04 rangi      its the number of seats not het range
02:04 bag        TSA = panty wads = dumb :P
02:04 rangi      over 90 seats you get screened
02:04 wizzyrea   the first time we took an internal flight in NZ, security gave spud a lolly. :P
02:04 rangi      77B of the Civil Aviation Act
02:05 wizzyrea   rangi++
02:05 eythian    wizzyrea: they landed a dreamliner here
02:05 wizzyrea   one of the stubby ones though?
02:05 eythian    ah, is that it.
02:05 bag        lolly's for spud is bad ass
02:05 rangi      yeah if you kill 89 passengers thats fine
02:05 rangi      just not 90
02:05 rangi      :)
02:05 wizzyrea   because there are short-body dreamlinesr
02:06 wizzyrea   dreamliners
02:06 wizzyrea   that can land here.
02:06 rangi      they landed conchord, but empty
02:06 eythian    wizzyrea: 787-8
02:06 wizzyrea   surprised they got it off the ground again ^.^
02:06 eythian    I think it had to be stripped down to take off again though :)
02:06 wizzyrea   ^^ lulz
02:07 eythian    ah: "While the interior is filled with test equipment and therefore far from showroom standard,..."
02:07 wizzyrea   I suppose I should revise - you can't land a fully loaded standard huge plane here
02:07 eythian    no
02:07 wizzyrea   more importantly, if you land it
02:07 wizzyrea   getting it back up might be a bit of a problem.
02:08 wizzyrea   it might be leaving on a boat.
02:08 wizzyrea   :P
02:10 rangi      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4hq4PzZIq4
02:10 rangi      some pilots can't land anything at wellington :-)
02:10 * wizzyrea loves the extreme welly landings
02:10 rangi      qantarse
02:10 wizzyrea   the videos. Experiencing it is... less fun.
02:10 wizzyrea   oh man that was this year!
02:11 rangi      yep
02:11 wizzyrea   right during that HUUUUGE wind storm
02:11 eythian    after the severalth time, you get used to it
02:11 wizzyrea   the most recent landing we had was a beauty
02:11 wizzyrea   the first one... we thought we might die.
02:11 rangi      the poor little ATRs
02:11 wizzyrea   good point that you should go out and tape planes landing on windy days.
02:11 wizzyrea   ^.^
02:11 wizzyrea   or at least watch.
02:12 rangi      im waiting for the sounds air
02:12 rangi      those things are 10 seaters
02:12 wizzyrea   could *almost* see it from our house
02:12 wizzyrea   if not for the ASB center
02:12 wizzyrea   well round the corner anyway
02:13 wizzyrea   i'm impressed that they were able to more or less land those places that gracefully during that particular wind
02:13 rangi      ah 7 mins
02:13 rangi      trying to take off... that pilot is good
02:14 wizzyrea   wheeeeeeee
02:14 * dcook    has all his flights booked now.
02:14 dcook      I'm actually going now! ^_^
02:14 dcook      The hotel reserve site looks like it's down though...
02:15 rangi      :)
02:15 * dcook    may or may not be giddy
02:15 eythian    should go via wellington
02:15 bag        later all - all you oceana peeps have a great weekend!  we all still have to work our firdays…  Hopefully you all have THE FUN!!!!!
02:16 dcook      eythian: Originally, I was going to go through Auckland
02:16 dcook      The direct Sydney-Vancouver flight is rather nice though
02:16 eythian    nah, you don't wanna go there.
02:16 dcook      laterz bag
02:16 wizzyrea   the fun?
02:16 wahanui    hmmm... the fun is over, i'm switching back to drojf's usual tl:dr behaviour
02:16 bag        THE FUN!
02:16 wahanui    the fun is probably over, i'm switching back to drojf's usual tl:dr behaviour
02:16 dcook      the funk?
02:17 * wizzyrea is going to see glow worms tonight
02:17 dcook      glow worms?
02:17 bag        wizzyrea: that is the FUN
02:17 eythian    where abouts?
02:17 bag        send me pictures please :)  (already asked trea)
02:17 wizzyrea   http://wellington.govt.nz/recreation/gardens/botanic-garden/events-calendar
02:18 wizzyrea   glow in the dark glow worm tour
02:18 wizzyrea   founders entrance on glenmore street
02:28 dcook      wizzyrea: That looks awesome!
02:34 * jcamins  decides to book tickets to Kohacon later.
02:42 dcook      jcamins: That's what I kept saying as well
02:42 dcook      Mind you, your travel is a bit more straightforward..
02:42 jcamins    dcook: yeah, but I'm trying to balance cost of being there versus sponsoring.
02:43 dcook      Mmm, fair enough.
02:43 dcook      Hope you're able to make it. It would be great to catch up in person.
02:43 jcamins    If ticket prices start going up before they provide any information about sponsoring, though, I guess I'll book and not sponsor.
02:44 jcamins    I'll be there for part of it.
02:44 dcook      :)
02:44 jcamins    I'm trying to decide what part.
02:45 * jcamins  discovers that actually there _is_ information on the Kohacon website, it's just not linked from the main kohacon13 page.
02:46 jcamins    Oh wonderful, wise wizzyrea, any chance you could link "KohaCon13 Schedule" on http://koha-community.org/kohacon/kohacon13/ to http://koha-community.org/kohacon/kohacon13/schedule/ ?
02:53 jcamins    Oh, I guess there won't be any sponsorship information for two weeks.
02:53 jcamins    That's a problem.
02:56 * jcamins  e-mails Nancy.

03:04 * dcook    loves complementary shuttle buses
03:04 jcamins    Even better are complimentary shuttle buses.
03:04 dcook      complimentary complementary shuttle buses must be the best
03:05 jcamins    "Why hellooo David, your hair looks great today."
03:05 dcook      I do feel like I'm having a good hair day...
03:05 jcamins    lol
03:06 jcamins    [off] A friend of mine says that I should leave libraries and do this: http://www.jobscore.com/jobs/buzzfeed/assistant-food-editor/cHpKuEUair4O7seJe4iefn?Board=Indeed
03:07 dcook      I like the last requirement :p
03:07 dcook      [off] I wonder if there is a way to further combine your love of books and food...
03:08 jcamins    [off] Like... writing a cookbook? :D
03:09 jcamins    I have decided to make it my life's work to revive seventeenth century cooking... AND MAKE IT GO VIRAL ON TWIMBLERBOOKTEREST
03:09 dcook      [off] Admittedly, my imagination kept pointing to eating books, but writing a cookbook is probably a better idea
03:09 eythian    I've told you already.
03:09 eythian    wahanui: cooking help
03:09 wahanui    cooking help is http://awfullibrarybooks.net/kitchen-tech/
03:09 jcamins    [off] dcook: relevant to that: http://www.jaredcamins.com/
03:10 jcamins    eythian: I'll use that to do it.
03:11 dcook      [off] lol. love it
03:12 jcamins    [off] A lot of my friends were horrified that that was how I started off my home page, but I always say if it doesn't express my personality, what's the point?
03:14 jcamins    [off] Plus, isn't that why we go into business for ourselves, so that our professional personae can say things like that?
03:16 dcook      [off] Exactly. Actually, even as a non-business owner, I'm getting to the point where I feel it's important to express one's personality. Sure, it might not get you the job at the evil multinational, but if your personality doesn't mesh with their desires, why would you want that job anyway?
03:44 * jcamins  heads to bed, having spent the last forty-five minutes contemplating how to make early modern cooking "trend" on Twimblerbookterest.
03:45 trea       sounds awful
03:45 * wizzyrea blinks
03:45 eythian    don't forget to put it up on Yourfaceinatube.com!
03:46 jcamins    eythian: hehe.
03:46 wizzyrea   *giggle*
03:46 jcamins    You're right. I should aim higher.
03:46 jcamins    twimblerbookterestube.
03:46 wizzyrea   apparently you could still register yourfaceinatube.com
03:46 jcamins    wizzyrea: good to know.
03:46 eythian    yeah, I meant myfaceinatube.com
03:46 wizzyrea   myface. silly.
03:46 eythian    it makes more appropriate references, and is correct to the show that I used to watch
03:47 wizzyrea   myfaceinatube redirects to abcfamily
03:47 trea       friendface
03:47 wizzyrea   kek.
03:47 eythian    yeah, it was the standard social network in "The Middleman"
03:47 eythian    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Middleman_(TV_series)
03:48 wizzyrea   is that one of those american reject tv shows that you all are famous for
03:48 eythian    I dunno, I downloaded it.
03:48 wizzyrea   "it ran for one season in the US - I know we should buy it!" - TV4
03:48 eythian    I don't think it actualy existed here.
03:49 eythian    It was quite ridiculous, but still entertaining.
03:49 cjh        http://blog.nj.com/entertainment_impact_tv/2008/07/large_middleman-sino.jpg
03:49 wizzyrea   twoo would probably be more likely to do that.

03:49 rangi      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOtpgz4L5d8
03:50 wizzyrea   the ad efore that is quite interesting. it's got benedict cumberbatch. I cannot say no.
03:54 cjh        'we didnt burn him' heh
03:56 eythian    the ad?
03:56 cjh        the video rangi linked.
03:57 eythian    that wasn't an ad, that was a video
03:57 wizzyrea   mine had an ad :P
03:57 cjh        oh you were replying to wizzyrea, my bad.
03:57 wizzyrea   before the real content
03:57 eythian    Really? How odd.
