[00:06:06] <aria> I have it on PSP, but only played a tiny bit
[00:06:11] <Coldguy> once I got the info I was good
[00:20:07] <aria> Alright, this is actually kinda funny http://www.youtube.com
[00:21:05] <Apsup> American football: clearly the greatest sport ever.

[00:28:12] <Coldguy> vpn to USA
[00:28:18] <aria> Getting a proxy extention and finding free proxies is effort
[00:28:25] <aria> I don't have a US VPN
[00:28:37] <Coldguy> crap
[00:28:53] <aria> Why would I have a US proxy =P?
[00:29:01] <aria> vpn, rather
[00:29:15] <Coldguy> to watch usa only sites like football :P
[00:29:21] <Coldguy> but good point
[00:29:29] <aria> We get the other kind of football =P
[00:29:39] <aria> Wouldn't mind having netflix and Hulu though
[00:29:50] <aria> It would make watching Running Man a lot easier
[00:30:12] <pence> hahaha this madden 13 video

[01:24:31] <aria> But lets watch this
[01:25:26] <Coldguy> the problem with me knowing so many people is that I can give you a laundry list but dont want to tell you ones that you mioght not like
[01:25:34] <aria> I'm watching the one on The house that drips blood on alex
[01:25:47] <Coldguy> ah Radu
[01:26:02] <Coldguy> a gag in a series of review got a spinoff spoof
[01:28:13] <Coldguy> I'd recommend this as a good entry into her stuff http://blip.tv
[01:28:26] <aria> See...
[01:28:33] <aria> She's doing a character in this
[01:28:40] <Coldguy> not her normal style
[01:28:43] -!- trogdor42 [trogdor42!trogdor42@hide-13929AC.dr02.roch.ny.frontiernet.net] has joined #geeknights
[01:28:44] <aria> And the character is bad

[01:30:42] <aria> Alright, I'll try the one you linked
[01:31:14] <aria> Alright, if this is a character, its a much less annoying one
[01:36:01] <aria> These are the worst super ninjas...
[01:37:15] <Coldguy> oh if you think those are bad
[01:37:22] <Coldguy> check out her other videos

[02:08:30] <Coldguy> I also linked this too http://www.youtube.com
[02:10:01] <aria> I like this...
[02:13:07] <Coldguy> he was part of dwayne and brando which is still the best vg parody music group http://www.youtube.com
[02:13:25] <Coldguy> sadly a difference in style broke them up but their tracks are awesome
[02:13:52] <aria> I see
[02:15:16] <Coldguy> thie r album is free to download
[02:15:31] <aria> Ill give it a listen after my current youtube
[02:20:19] <Bronzdragon> Hai
[02:21:46] <Coldguy> hi
[02:21:53] <okeefe> Tonight was gaming night.
[02:22:35] <Bronzdragon> And?
[02:23:49] <okeefe> It was fun. *crickets*
[02:24:59] <Bronzdragon> What did you do?
[02:26:24] <okeefe> It's a new group, and we're going to rotate systems and GMs. But we're starting with d20 Modern + investigation. That's not the system I would have picked.
[02:32:48] <Bronzdragon> Is it Noir styled?
[02:32:59] <Bronzdragon> It's not a good investigation game if it's not Noir.
[02:33:17] <okeefe> Not in the slightest. It's mostly weirdshit in a small MA town.
[02:33:47] <Coldguy> I am actually trying to plan to head up to MA way sometime this fall
[02:33:59] <Coldguy> need to coordinate meeting all of you all when I head up tehre
[02:34:58] <okeefe> I used to live in MA, but moved to CO a few months ago. Will be at Burning Con, though.
[02:35:20] <Coldguy> Ah I know Justin is in CO
[02:35:28] <Coldguy> aka Jewwario
[02:36:15] <Bronzdragon> Goodnight, knights.
[02:36:19] <Bronzdragon> Of the geekery
[02:36:29] <Coldguy> night
[02:36:38] -!- Bronzdragon has quit [Connection reset by peer]
[02:38:57] <aria> Ive never played any roleplaying games before
[02:39:01] <aria> Are they fun?
[02:39:15] <Coldguy> they can be
[02:39:26] <okeefe> If you're doing it right, with the right people.
[02:39:28] <Coldguy> like minded people making a story up\
[02:39:50] <aria> But I don't know the right people =(
[02:42:03] <Coldguy> that is what the internet is for]
[02:42:17] <aria> Doesn't seem like it would be fun over the internet though
[02:44:19] <Coldguy> Google hangout plus audience
[02:44:26] <Coldguy> can be a raoring time
[02:44:37] <Coldguy> use like a d20 online liek program
[02:44:41] <Coldguy> and have a ball
[02:45:01] <aria> Mmm, sounds awkward and restrictive
[02:45:06] <okeefe> Over the internet is a rougher experience, usually, depending on the game.
[02:45:17] <aria> I'd be interested in playing RPGs in real life though
[02:49:29] <pence> if I had to have a primary geekery, RPGs are it
[02:50:21] <pence> okeefe: what are you running at Burning Con?
[02:50:27] <okeefe> FreeMarket!
[02:51:31] <pence> eeexcellent, I'm going to try and get into a freemarket game that weekend
[02:51:37] <pence> still haven't read/played it
[02:53:16] <okeefe> Last BC I ran it for Scott. It was a pretty good time.
[02:55:47] <pence> *checks the list of valid games*
[02:57:34] <aria> So from what Ive heard from Geeknights, Burningcon has a thing where they try to get people into RPGs by making them pay more for being noobs
[02:57:50] <aria> Isn't that the opposite of what you should do?
[02:57:54] <pence> Freemarket and Poison'd are pretty much the only two on the list that I haven't played yet and still want to
[02:58:00] <aria> Cause if you're a nub, you're less likely to wanna pay for it
[02:58:18] <aria> and then you're likely to pretend not to be a nub, and then ruin some groups games for sucking?
[02:58:45] <pence> I'm not sure who that beginner track is for, really. Although I've gotten one or two people interested in the event that would both do it if they went
[02:59:35] <aria> See, that seems like the thing that if you said "And you pay 25% less", regardless of the actual money spent, I'd be interested in doing
[02:59:40] <pence> because you get a whole afternoon workshopping 'here's how to play/run this game', which is kind of neat
[03:01:59] <okeefe> Poison'd is a good time. I've run it a few times.
[03:05:07] <pence> I actually ended up playing in an all-orc con scenario playtest over G+ this week
[03:05:15] <pence> which was basically poison'd
[03:05:23] <pence> but with orcs instead of pirates
[03:16:10] <okeefe> There's an optional rule for if you're playing a female pirate in Poison'd. Ever time I've run it I've had a female player with a female pirate, which has been great fun.
[03:22:54] -!- Coldguy has quit [Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client]
[03:47:49] <pence> late reaction to the female pirate thing: oh, I see, In the section with the sins
[03:48:23] <okeefe> Yep. Mmm, blasphemy.
[03:50:31] <pence> prepare for trouble, and make it double!

[14:20:13] <bronzdragon> Have you ever shouted "You assholes" at a podcast?
[14:20:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yes.
[14:20:37] <bronzdragon> I think this might be my first.
[14:20:43] <ProfPangloss|Work> And though I can't specifically pinpoint a time, I believe Anime World Order was involveds
[14:21:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> Though it could've been Geeknights
[14:21:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> Who was it for you?
[14:21:25] <bronzdragon> Giantbomb
[14:21:51] <bronzdragon> I can tolerate a lot of stupidity, and I don't get angry much.
[14:21:58] <bronzdragon> I just think they're assholes
[14:28:30] <Apsup> Why they are assholes?
[14:28:56] <bronzdragon> I distinctly remember them constantly complaining about how hard it is to get a PC to run games
[14:29:02] <bronzdragon> How you had to jump through hoops
[14:29:05] <bronzdragon> And even steam is hard
[14:29:22] <bronzdragon> And now, they're like "Yeah, consoles are for people who THINK PCs are hard, even though they aren't"

[15:33:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> Just had a weekly one-on-one meeting with my boss

[16:32:33] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh *shit*
[16:32:53] <ProfPangloss|Work> My supervisor/office mate just found a discarded LED screen
[16:33:06] <ProfPangloss|Work> One of those custom ones you can program animations/scrolling text for
[16:33:17] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's dropping all his projects for now so he can get this working
[16:33:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> "What're we gonna use it for?"
[16:33:51] <ProfPangloss|Work> "Oh don't worry, the department's not getting their hands on this bad boy. It's for us to mess with."
[16:35:39] <Bronzdragon> ...
[16:35:46] <Bronzdragon> Your boss is awesome
[16:37:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's not even my boss
[16:37:14] <ProfPangloss|Work> My "boss" is the head of user IT, and he handles several departments
[16:37:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> My "supervisor," and the protagonist of my little story, is the head tech for the department I help supervise.
[16:37:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> Put it this way, he's not the one who writes up my main evaluation at the end of the quarter, but he is the one who determines my day-to-day tasks
[16:38:36] <ProfPangloss|Work> My "boss" is the one who, when I head into his office for my weekly meetings, has been known to either be blasting symphonic metal or practicing a bass riff.

[18:22:43] <ProfPangloss|Work> See, thanks to some other snap-decision plans, I'm also going to Jamaica for Spring Break week
[18:23:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> But at least the only expense for that will be the travel - rich friend and his beach house will be covering the rest
[18:23:44] <trogdor42> so
[18:23:45] <trogdor42> hi
[18:24:08] <trogdor42> i guess we're doing pax east this year
[18:24:52] <ProfPangloss|Work> I guess so
[18:24:58] * ProfPangloss|Work brofists trogdor42
[18:25:14] <trogdor42> ProfPangloss|Work: is joe boomer interested in going with us?
[18:25:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> Shit we should message him
[18:25:23] <trogdor42> i don't have his phone number
[18:25:31] <ProfPangloss|Work> Also Katie said she might be interested, but I said she'll need to get her own ticket
[18:25:42] <ProfPangloss|Work> And she's not home from work until 530
[18:25:45] <trogdor42> they should assume that they have *seconds*
[18:25:58] <trogdor42> it WILL sell out by 5:30
[18:26:02] <trogdor42> like, not even a question
[18:26:09] <trogdor42> it'll probably sell out by 2:45 or 3
[18:26:12] <trogdor42> possibly earlier
[18:26:54] <ProfPangloss|Work> I just texted him, but no guarantees
[18:26:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's bad about checking his phone
[18:27:03] <ProfPangloss|Work> And being timely in general..
[18:27:24] <trogdor42> WuB says if he and turtle can get passes, they can room with us
[18:27:30] <ProfPangloss|Work> Fuck yes
[18:27:35] <trogdor42> that'd be awesome
[18:27:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> That would be like 8 levels of glorious
[18:27:47] <trogdor42> i don't know why he keeps posting on the forum and facebook instead of buying a pass
[18:27:58] <ProfPangloss|Work> Probably 'cause he doesn't know the urgency
[18:27:58] <trogdor42> ok i gotta close my laptop, class
[18:28:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> You should let him know
[18:28:02] <ProfPangloss|Work> LAME
[18:28:03] <ProfPangloss|Work> Okay

[18:36:46] <pence-work> we need a pax east badge betting pool
[18:37:11] <Neo> I think it will be a bit longer than people think, it might last 24-36 hours.
[18:37:29] <pence-work> I'm kind of feeling that, too
[18:37:32] <Neo> but, I know nothing
[18:38:04] <pence-work> either way we'll find out if Prime selling out so quickly was because of the LoL thing or not
[18:38:19] <pence-work> or at least, if that was a large contributing factor
[18:38:31] <GauntletWizard> East has more badges because bigger venue...
[18:38:34] <Neo> maybe, but Prime also holds fewer people and is over a holiday weekend and everything
[18:38:43] <GauntletWizard> But they've also got the entire eastern seaboard coming
[18:38:58] <GauntletWizard> and also sellout paranoia
[18:39:08] -!- bronzdragon [bronzdragon!bronzdrago@hide-48E615F.adsl.xs4all.nl] has joined #geeknights
[18:39:09] <Neo> ^^ yep, those are the variables
[18:39:14] <bronzdragon> There we go!
[18:39:47] <pence-work> yeah, I wouldn't have grabbed 5 badges immediately if I weren't anticipating the 2-hour window
[18:40:07] <GauntletWizard> I bought four
[18:40:09] <pence-work> either way I know I won't have trouble finding people to give them to, even if it's at the front door
[18:40:21] <GauntletWizard> Two sets of two, $200 starting bid.
[18:40:32] <bronzdragon> I wish I could go to pax =(
[18:45:06] <bronzdragon> Don't you guys feel guilty about scalping?
[18:45:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> ^
[18:46:58] <pence-work> I'm not planning on making a profit, but making sure that friends / acquaintances don't get stuck without tickets
[18:47:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> The people who'll pay $200+ for PAX tickets aren't gonna be first-timers
[18:47:45] <ProfPangloss|Work> So profit-making aside, scalping ultimately screws over the first-time PAX-goer. Hard.
[18:47:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> Which is a dick move.
[18:48:05] <bronzdragon> That was what Aria and I were thinking
[18:48:52] <aria> Tickets wouldn't get sold out as fast if everyone didn't buy 5
[18:49:03] <pence-work> it's a chicken/egg thing
[18:49:10] <aria> And the faster they sell out, the harder it is for someone to "casually" buy them
[18:49:16] <pence-work> I also wouldn't have bought five if I weren't expecting them to sell out so fast :[
[18:50:01] <okeefe> I will probably be getting a badge for working Games on Demand, but I bought one just in case.
[18:50:28] <pence-work> I hopped by GoD for a few hours last year, too
[18:51:26] <pence-work> John Stavropoulos is as awesome a dude as I was lead to believe
[18:51:57] <okeefe> Yep.
[18:52:42] <bronzdragon> I was thinkin', you could solve the problem by having 50% of badges be name-tied, and non-resellable
[18:59:49] <GauntletWizard> Scalping is solving a problem with market inefficency
[19:01:26] <GauntletWizard> (Also: I would feel bad, but Khahil is a dick)

[20:08:45] <belarm_> How goes, everyone?
[20:09:49] <bronzdragon> well
[20:09:54] <bronzdragon> Pretty well
[20:09:56] <belarm_> Glad to hear it.
[20:10:04] <bronzdragon> People are stoked about this "pax" thing?
[20:10:13] <bronzdragon> I can't join 'em in 'MURICA, so eh...
[20:10:37] * belarm_ scrambles to remember how to use IRC, and figure out why he has an _ after his handle.
[20:11:05] <belarm_> You're not alone. I'm a colonial, and haven't managed to make it to *any* PAX
[20:11:41] <belarm_> It probably has a lot to do with me pouring all available income into my home network.
[20:12:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> I mean, I wasn't even gonna think about going
[20:12:04] <belarm_> Scott isn't actually online, is he?
[20:12:13] <ProfPangloss|Work> But trogdor42 texted me saying "PAX EAST ARE WE IN OR NOT"
[20:12:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> And before I could respond, "FUCKIT GETTING TWO PASSES"
[20:12:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> So I guess now I'm thinking about going
[20:12:34] <belarm_> If I were living in NY, as I should be, I'd totally be there.
[20:12:44] <belarm_> DO IT!
[20:13:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> He has car and Yosho has room
[20:13:15] <belarm_> Yosho?
[20:13:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> So as long as I basically don't buy anything ever between now and March I should be fine
[20:13:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> YoshoKatana/Keats
[20:13:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yeah
[20:13:55] <belarm_> Ah. Learn to cook, and your ramen will be much more satisfying.
[20:14:15] <bronzdragon> what can you really do to ramen though?
[20:14:25] <bronzdragon> Egg, maybe?
[20:14:29] <bronzdragon> but that's about it...
[20:14:39] <belarm_> Ramen are frozen rice noodles - known in other contexts as yakisoba
[20:14:54] <belarm_> Look for recipes involving the latter, and you'll get some ideas.
[20:17:17] <belarm_> I eat a lot of southeast asian food, and spices are the entirety of their palete - you can make anything taste good with enough cumin, tamarind, and cardamom.
[20:18:47] <bronzdragon> that is true
[20:18:51] <belarm_> So are you going, ProfPangloss|Work?
[20:19:10] <ProfPangloss|Work> 95% yes
[20:19:24] <ProfPangloss|Work> In that a badge has been purchased with the intention that it is for me
[20:20:03] <ProfPangloss|Work> The only chance that I'm not going is if there's a financial crisis of some sort
[20:20:16] * belarm_ wants to cook some Massaman Curry.
[20:20:42] <belarm_> That's no kind of excuse. You're obligated to go, ProfPangloss|Work.
[20:22:37] <belarm_> Should you decide to shirk that responsibility, of course - you should let me know.
[20:23:45] <pence-work> I also have a few badges to hand out once the dust settles
[20:24:03] <belarm_> (because I'll totally take your badge...)
[20:24:47] <pence-work> well, "hand out" meaning sell at cost
[20:25:11] <belarm_> It's fair to call that a hand-out.
[20:26:22] <belarm_> So, here's an idea: why not list all of the FRC game servers/steam groups in the topic?
[20:28:43] <belarm_> Someone here can surely relate to this: I was fixing up an old NES deck, and wound up plugging it in without the top of the case, leaving the flashing exposed.
[20:29:04] <belarm_> I managed to step on it, and leave a .5" deep cut in the heel of my foot.
[20:29:06] <ProfPangloss|Work> belarm_: Oh, and now my girlfriend got her badge too. Soo, make that 99.9%
[20:29:42] <belarm_> ProfPangloss|Work, how can you include any degree of uncertainty in that figure?
[20:30:20] <belarm_> You and I both know the likelyhood is at least 99.999999999%, with P=.00000000000000000000001
[20:30:35] <ProfPangloss|Work> I think it's more like it just hasn't sunk in just yet
[20:31:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> 'Cause every previous PAX (as long as I've been in school) has been "oh well, I'll go some year when I actually have money"
[20:31:12] <ProfPangloss|Work> Now I'm going, even though I don't actually have money
[20:31:15] <ProfPangloss|Work> Sooooo
[20:31:29] <belarm_> Money acrues intrest at a far slower rate than memories.
