#geeknights | Logs for 2012-09-29

[00:04:12] <Neito> Apparently Fox News just accidentally broadcasted some guy's suicide.
[00:05:35] <Aria> ...
[00:05:41] <Aria> How do you accidentally do that?
[00:05:45] <Bronzdragon> How do you do that accidentally-- Yes
[00:05:53] <Neito> They didn't cut away in time.
[00:06:01] <Bronzdragon> ... I see
[00:06:13] <Neito> Hold on, I'm pulling up the TP article.
[00:06:15] <Aria> ...they do live things live
[00:06:24] <Aria> wrong**
[00:06:26] <Aria> not live
[00:06:27] <Neito> It was on a 5 second delay tat the time.
[00:06:35] <Neito> http://thinkprogress.org
[00:08:27] <Aria> you should do 10 seconds
[00:10:39] <Aria> All the youtube comments are "Oh man that chace was the awesome bro dawg!"

[00:12:09] <Neito> Hey, Scott.
[00:12:40] <pence> yo
[00:13:20] <Aria> Oh hey
[00:15:07] <Aria> I don't remember anything from The Running Man. I'm not sure if I've even seen it..
[00:15:24] <Neito> Arnie running man or Korean Running Man?
[00:15:36] <Aria> Arnie Running Man. Seen plenty of Korean Running Man
[00:16:46] <Aria> Korean Running Man doesn't have the "The".
[00:56:46] <Bronzdragon> I think I've seen it
[00:56:49] <Bronzdragon> ... I think
[00:57:27] <Aria> If not, we should watch it together!
[01:24:43] <Aria> The chat logs are now active!
[01:25:04] <Bronzdragon> They are amazing
[01:25:06] <Bronzdragon> http://frontrowcrew.com
[01:25:07] <Aria> Aww, not yet?
[01:25:24] <Aria> Does it only update every so often maybe?
[01:25:46] <Aria> Shouldn't /irc be a webclient?
[01:25:52] <Aria> And /irc/logs be logs or whatever
[01:26:05] <Apreche> what is the best web client?
[01:26:21] <Aria> Freenode one is pretty inoffensive
[01:26:43] <Bronzdragon> Mibbit is more well featured, but could be considered bloaty
[01:26:56] <Aria> Can you disable disable ads on that?
[01:26:58] <Apreche> i'm more concerned with it not being ugly
[01:27:08] <Aria> Cause the one one the actual mibbit website is ugly as fuck
[01:27:12] <Bronzdragon> http://www.qwebirc.org <--
[01:27:16] <Aria> Qwebirc is the freenode one
[01:28:13] <Aria> Here you go scott http://webchat.quakenet.org
[01:28:23] <Aria> Decide for yourself if you think its ugly or not. I like it

[01:33:04] <sail> alright
[01:33:22] <Aria> There we go
[01:33:23] <Aria> Welcome!
[01:33:27] <Aria> Register your name
[01:33:33] <Bronzdragon> Meeeeh
[01:33:35] <Neito> I love it when the linemen get the ball in football.
[01:33:57] <Neito> Because nobody knows what the fuck to do.
[01:34:03] <Neito> The lineman included.
[01:34:49] <Apreche> so i can't figur eout how to make qwebirc default to a specific channel
[01:35:17] <Apreche> it's designed to let the user pick a channel
[01:36:05] <Bronzdragon> There's definetly a way, I've seen it done.
[01:36:09] <Bronzdragon> (Can't tell you how though)
[01:36:53] <Neito> Apparently, it's not a default feature.
[01:37:09] <Neito> Some googling turns up a few questions and a plugin.
[01:37:52] <Aria> Does the hacky method of hiding the field and having it be pre filled work =P?
[01:38:29] <Apreche> not worth the effort
[01:39:15] <Aria> Not even with a third party drop and drag plugin?
[01:39:19] <Bronzdragon> ... and then he played torchlight
[01:39:29] <Bronzdragon> He's not reading this anymore, because "eh, fuck it"
[01:39:34] <Aria> =P
[01:39:34] <pence> hahaha
[01:39:43] <Aria> Perfect
[01:39:45] <Bronzdragon> (Thanks Steam!)
[01:40:21] <sail> CS:GO update next week~
[01:40:35] <Apsup> Anything interesting coming?
[01:40:37] <sail> de_vertigo and ar_monastery
[01:40:39] <Aria> So people of #Geeknights. I'm gonna model a ship for a ship racing game. Anyone wanna suggest a gimmick?
[01:40:54] <sail> finally a new arms race map
[01:41:43] <sail> also a new matchmaking system for classic demo
[01:43:57] <Apsup> Tried tf2 today and noticed that it had new matchmaking system too. In the end didn't play.
[01:44:14] <Bronzdragon> ... perfect
[01:45:08] <Apsup> I wonder who was the genius who took the play radom game mode option off the find game menu?
[01:45:32] <Apsup> No way I will try every game mode one by one to find one where there are servers and players.
[01:47:02] <Bronzdragon> ^ Almost as lazy as Apreche
[01:48:19] <Apsup> I have gotten used that I can easily get into game without having to deal with finding suitable servers or anything like that.
[01:48:41] <Apsup> I went to look at the server list, to see if I could find there something that entertains me. Nope.
[01:49:48] <Apsup> These days I just hate server lists, good thing that they are there if someone needs them but I want to be able to stay away from them.
[01:50:12] <Bronzdragon> ... I dunno, I like them
[01:51:16] <Apsup> custom map, custom map, random mod, custom map, that one overplayed map 24/7, random mod, two players...
[01:53:00] <Bronzdragon> Don't get me wrong, there's a place for quickmatch
[02:08:40] <Apsup> Good night people.

[05:38:22] <ninjarabbi> what a dick
[05:38:35] <canine224> Yeah
[05:39:52] <canine224> Oppa Condom Style seems like a successful PSA Parody
[05:40:13] <canine224> At least successful in being amusing.
[05:40:32] <ninjarabbi> yeah
[05:40:41] <ninjarabbi> but It wasn't as good as I had hoped
[05:41:31] <ninjarabbi> and when I think of "open condom style" for some reason I think of open meaning like broken
[05:42:30] <canine224> I could see that.

[17:56:25] <aria> So #geeknights lasted a day this time?
[17:56:51] <aria> At least, last time it lasted a week or two before dying.
[17:57:21] <pence> like all IRC channels, I just end up idling in here until I happen to look at it when something interesting's happening
[18:14:17] <Apreche> if you want it to rock, promote it
[18:28:23] <aria> I wonder if I could make any money (enough to pay for hosting) off a podcast streaming application..
[18:29:24] <aria> Cause waiting for them to download sucks..
[18:30:05] <aria> I suppose it doesn't even need to host it's own files. It can just be a network enabled player with a searchable database of links
[19:10:09] <Apreche> podcasts download very quickly for most people. There aren't that many people with dial-up left.
[19:12:02] <Neito> Google Listen streams (streamed? Is Google Listen still around?) podcasts.
[19:12:12] <Apreche> I thought it cached, not streamed.
[19:12:17] <Apreche> and Google Listen is dead
[19:12:31] <Neito> It can do both.
[19:12:57] <Neito> If you try to listen to a podcast you don't have downloaded, it'll stream it.
[19:14:45] <pence> I still use Listen on my phone, although if there's a better alternative I could use it.
[19:15:06] <Apreche> http://www.androidcentral.com
[19:15:06] <Neito> I haven't found a better podcatcher, either for Windows or Android.
[19:15:14] <Apreche> iTunes is king
[19:15:14] <Neito> Ah.
[19:15:25] <Neito> If you have an iOS device or an iPod.
[19:15:38] <Apreche> if I had an Android phone, I would use an iPod nano.
[19:15:56] <Neito> There's winamp for android.
[19:16:16] <Apreche> not too shabby
[19:16:19] <Neito> I'd use that if I weren't already using Play Music.
[19:16:26] <Neito> (Googles version of Amazon Cloud Player)
[19:16:29] <Apreche> does it whip the llama's ass?
[19:16:33] <Neito> It does.
[19:16:49] <Apreche> yeah, I've been using Amazon Cloud player. But it doesn't do podcasts.
[19:17:08] <Neito> No, it doesn't.
[19:17:08] <aria> It's usually the server being too slow. When I feel like listening to a podcast, I wanna have a list, click and listen. But instead I have to click, then click open in whatever player, then wait like 30 seconds. That is too many seconds!
[19:17:32] <Apreche> how much would you pay to eliminate those 30 seconds?
[19:18:40] <aria> Hrm... if its cross every audio file, 100 US?
[19:19:11] <Apreche> then use your $100 to get a fiber ISP
[19:19:48] <Neito> http://www.reddit.com
[19:20:00] <aria> Problem isn't on my end, it's on peoples hosting
[19:20:08] <Neito> Speaking of Google, interestingish new app.
[19:20:24] <aria> But their hosting is fast enough to stream. If I copy the URL and open that URL in a player, it streams
[19:20:27] <aria> but thats effort
[19:20:35] <aria> I guess I should just make a firefox script that does that for me..
[19:22:21] <aria> I should mention, because of where I live, I'm forced to use a specific ISP, and they suck. I pay around 100US monthly for 20Mb/S
[19:22:37] <Apreche> move
[19:22:44] <aria> Going to
[19:23:30] <aria> How is internet pricing in the US?
[19:23:37] <Apreche> awful, but not that awful
[19:24:08] <Neito> Depends on where you are. It's probably better in the cities than out in the burbs, where I've been living, so far.
[19:24:29] <aria> Well, using usual store-conversion, you should always double the ammount when converting to Norway monies. So think of our prices as half
[19:24:33] <Apreche> if you live in Kansas City it's amazing since you can get Google there
[19:24:58] <aria> The ISP I'll be switching over to soon offers 50Mb/S up and down for about 80-90US
[19:25:49] <Neito> Yeah, you have little chance of symetrical in the US. At least not without upgrading to "Business class" service.
[19:26:23] <aria> I can get more down for cheaper, but thats the only ISP that gives me the same up as down, and isn't yknow, a billion bucks for a billion bytes
[19:26:25] <Neito> That said, most places around here bundle shit like crazy. It's hard to find "just internet" anymore. They try to get you to buy internet and phone and TV.
[19:26:39] <Apreche> I can get something called "Ultimate Internet" from Time Warner
[19:26:43] <Apreche> It's 50 down
[19:26:44] <aria> Yeah.. we don't use phone/TV
[19:26:46] <Apreche> and plenty up
[19:26:54] <Apreche> 5 up
[19:26:59] <Apreche> costs $100 I think
[19:27:00] <aria> Thats not plenty!
[19:27:07] <aria> I have 5 up now, and it sucks =P
[19:27:12] <Apreche> I pay $50 for 20/2
[19:27:41] <Neito> I don't even want to know what we were paying for 1.5/768k at my house.
[19:27:42] <aria> Then thats about comparable to here, if I convert the way stores do..
[19:28:04] <aria> Its 20/5 for 500 norwegian, which is what we pay for 50US products
[19:28:20] <Neito> (I also don't want to remember how three people LIVED off of 1.5/768k)
[19:29:35] <Apreche> I use to live off 56k
[19:29:38] <Apreche> and even 14.4
[19:29:46] <Apreche> my friend had 9600 back in the date
[19:29:47] <Apreche> day
[19:29:57] <Neito> Yes, but that was before the media rich internet.
[19:30:25] <aria> But also before good compression!
[19:30:41] <Apreche> we should get a 9600 modem and try to watch a youtube video on it
[19:31:16] <aria> You can probably just limit your bandwith with software to test
[19:31:19] <Neito> Retrocomputing has always been an interest of mine. I kinda want to get an old-style BBS or MUD set up via Telnet just for the proverbial "lulz".
[19:31:43] <Apreche> IRC not retro enough
[19:31:58] <Neito> IRC was after I was born.
[19:32:08] <pence> we still have a big rack of modems in a datacenter at work, because auto dealerships use them
[19:35:22] <Neito> Ever PC I've ever bought before this laptop came with a 56k modem (except, obviously, my P-90 Compaq, which had a 14.4).
[19:35:31] <aria> IRC is so not retro. It doesn't count on retro if you don't stop using it. Radio has been around forever, but if someone listens to the radio on the car, I won't get retro associations
[19:35:35] <Apreche> I think my Lenovo still has a modem in it, let me check
[19:36:05] <Apreche> X201 modem confirmed
[19:36:12] <aria> I said "on" then I meant "in" twice there.
[19:36:14] <aria> Not sure why
[19:36:35] <aria> I guess i and o are next to each other.
[19:36:36] <Neito> Hell, I tried to pull a hard drive out of my first laptop when the hard drive in this one failed, and I couldn't use it because the other laptop was ATA rather than SATA.
[19:37:29] <Neito> So I ended up using both as coasters during my friend's birthday party.
[19:43:44] <Neito> You know, I love /tg/'s That Guy threads, but it annoys me how many of these stories could be solved by having a backbone.
[19:44:45] <pence> most of the time I see stories like that, I'm wondering "why are you still playing with this person" and occasionally "why is everyone else still playing with you?"
[19:45:20] <Neito> Pretty much.
[19:45:30] <Neito> "This guy wants to rape catgirls!"
[19:45:38] <Neito> "Then tell him to stop, or kick him out. Duh."
[19:45:55] <aria> Stop /wanting/ to rape catgirls?
[19:45:59] <pence> so many geek social fallacies
[19:45:59] <aria> Or stop raping catgirls?
[19:46:02] <Neito> "I'm a huge, socially-awkward-in-all-the-wrong-ways pussy, I can't do that!"
[19:46:29] <Neito> I especially love when it's the DM that's complaining about something trivial to solve.
[19:46:57] <Neito> Because that, to me, means you're a shitty DM if you can't control your table.
[19:54:54] <Neito> Alright, I'm going to go have wacky college adventures.

[21:27:10] <Bronzdragon> 'sup Apreche?
[21:27:50] <Apreche> got some laundry up ins
[21:28:08] <Bronzdragon> OH DUDE, riviting.
[21:28:16] <Bronzdragon> Were there any tooths in the laundry?
[21:28:27] <Bronzdragon> *teeth
[21:29:04] <Apreche> WTF
[21:29:17] <Bronzdragon> Well, that story was on Geeknights once
[21:29:34] <Bronzdragon> Not told by you or Rym though.
[21:29:50] <Bronzdragon> Most interesting laundry story, if yours can't top that, why even bother?
[21:30:09] <Apreche> You act like I would remember anything that was ever on our show.
[21:30:36] <Bronzdragon> Well, it's an old show, but it got a recent rerun recently
[21:30:42] <Bronzdragon> On the fast karate RSS
[21:30:47] <Bronzdragon> Besides, I'm like 2 months behind.
[21:30:55] <Apreche> I'm 6 years behind
[21:31:07] <aria> Oh
[21:31:12] <aria> That is the best episode
[21:31:19] <Bronzdragon> By far.
[21:31:38] <Bronzdragon> (no disrespect, Apreche =P)
[21:34:45] <aria> Yeah, pretty much anything with Dave and Joel is the best that thing...
[21:35:25] <Apreche> laundry room time
[21:35:37] <Bronzdragon> Alright, try not to find body parts
[21:36:40] <pence> just look the other way
[21:37:48] <Bronzdragon> In the washing room, you'll probably have a tub you can use to desolve body parts
[21:37:50] <Bronzdragon> All you need is ley
[21:39:40] <Bronzdragon> *Lye
[21:39:46] <Bronzdragon> Seems I can't type today
[21:39:56] <Bronzdragon> Maybe that's why my Unrealscript won't compile =(
