[1:43] <hyc> so, looks like the 2009-09 software release is due out soon, should be fun...
[1:45] <Corsac> hmhm
[1:45] <Corsac> what makes you say that?
[1:45] <Corsac> roadmap speaks about "end of september"
[1:47] <hyc> oh? well, there was an 'a' and a 'b' release of 2009-08 in August
[1:47] <hyc> I assumed there would be two phases for September as well
[1:47] <Corsac> mhh, maybe
[1:48] <Corsac> it'd make sense to load the mid-september shipment with 2009-09a
[1:48] <hyc> unfortunately the OpenEmbedded guys just changed the world, and my whole build tree got invalidated
[1:48] <Corsac> but that would means there's a 2009-09a and the mid-september shipment is indeed mid-september
[1:48] <hyc> I would guess AI has to rebuild from scratch too
[1:48] <Corsac> and I'm not that sure of both

[4:36] <JoeM5> Hello Everyone!!
[4:37] <JoeM5> Just wondering if the 2009.09x has been released
[4:38] <dpb> Nope.
[4:40] <JoeM5> Should be soon, I cant wait to get my touch book..
[4:44] <JoeM5> Anyone here get a TB yet??
[4:44] <dpb> not many
[4:45] <dpb> hyc has one, but he's currently offline
[4:45] <Corsac> and we didn't see gregoire since quite some time
[4:46] <dpb> yeah.. where is he? :/
[4:46] <JoeM5> I havent seen him on the logs but he did reply to some on the forums
[4:46] <Corsac> he's working I guess
[4:46] <dpb> Or has had an accident and the whole project is on hold... who knows...
[4:46] <Corsac> nah, he edited the wiki too
[4:47] <dpb> Oh.
[4:47] <JoeM5> He replied to some questions on the TB Forums Sunday..
[4:48] <dpb> Ah
[4:48] <dpb> I haven't checked the forums for a few days...
[4:51] <JoeM5> How hard is it to make updates for the TB... I see many on the forums with line commands to make changes.
[4:52] * robclark (n=robclark@ has joined #touchbook
[4:52] <JoeM5> <--- Not as smart as many of you... I am Windows Disabled
[4:54] <dpb> The software is quite beta still, if you want a working system right now, the TouchBook isn't for you.
[4:55] <JoeM5> I dont mind it being in beta... willing to do any updates, just can't help with actually writing programs on my own.

[5:27] * ndan (n=ndan@207-255-128-108-dhcp.unt.pa.atlanticbb.net) has joined #touchbook
[5:27] <ndan> hey quick question, if i ordered one today when would it be shipped, i understand they postoned the next release however an eta?
[5:38] <Corsac> ndan: the only data we have is that all pre-orders should be fullfilled in october
[5:38] <dpb> Earliest at October, probably November, if unlucky then December. But most likely before Christmas anyway. :)
[5:42] <ndan> aight well i'm thinking of getting one for college, albeit college begins right now. I can attempt to use this laptop, however its quite ancient. an sha allah i suppose, just sucks i have to pay for it before i receive it for such a lengthy time.
[5:49] <Corsac> you won't pay it
[5:49] <ndan> so you pay upon shipment?
[5:50] <Corsac> I mean, you'll give your credentials, but the money won't be wired before shipping
[5:50] <Corsac> yes
[6:00] <ndan> interesting. done.
[6:02] <dpb> (remember that the software is still in beta, so there's bugs in it, dunno how good it'll be for college use..)

[15:32] <GUido-> when did you preorder?
[15:33] <cuchac> 27.6.2009 ....
[15:34] <cuchac> but i'm "international", so I hope to be included in the "small amount of int. pre-orders"
[15:40] <GUido-> well I preordered in the first week of March... so you may be waiting a whiel
[15:40] <GUido-> er while
[15:43] <cuchac> therefore i'm making sure my "order qualification" is OK - perhaps it will make some difference

[16:50] <hyc> I wonder if your hardware has the single-resistor-fix on the touchpad, so that it can work in absolute mode
[16:50] * viridior is downloading 2009-09a
[16:51] <viridior> i doubt it
[16:51] <hyc> mmmm. I guess I'll download that to my original 8GB card

[17:44] <fbott> I emailed Gregoire also, but I don't have programing skills, so I don't think I will qualify
[17:54] <Hugh> the thing that you REALLY need to remember is to always be awesome.
[17:54] <Hugh> its an important skill set for life
[17:55] <drantin> pfff, if you are awesome, you don't have to constantly remember it
[17:56] <Hugh> however if you are awesome and you constantly remember it, you never have to worry about accidentally killing yourself.
[17:57] <drantin> from sheer awesomeness overload?
[17:59] <Hugh> cause, how many time have you been like oh well ill just slit my wrists... and then right afterwards been like OH SHIT WAIT, IM AWESOME FUCK I FORGOT... dammit, not again.
