[00:06:16] <pence> crash 10 robobuntus
[00:06:17] <Robobuntu> you can't crash 10 robobuntus!
[00:06:57] <okeefe> If the bot were named InsideJoke, that would be amusing.
[00:09:47] <pence> it has now outgrown its initial purpose
[00:14:41] <bronzdragon> I think you need different bots
[00:14:47] <bronzdragon> This one needs to be named "pokemon"
[00:14:52] -!- Neo has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
[00:15:08] <bronzdragon> Also, you should make it read a text file. "Inputs -> outputs"
[00:15:17] <bronzdragon> that way you don't need to reboot him every time
[00:16:04] <pence> yeah, it's a janky python script right now that really needs to get rewritten correctly
[00:16:41] <okeefe> I'm curious how long this particular instance of the geeknights irc will last.
[00:16:58] <bronzdragon> You could even outsource development
[00:17:05] <pence> it will last 10 years
[00:17:06] <Robobuntu> you can't last 10 years!
[00:17:17] <bronzdragon> Nice!

[00:23:48] <okeefe> It will last ten years.
[00:24:01] <okeefe> Ok, bot needs to recognize ten as well as 10.
[00:24:21] <pence> see, I thought about it, and went through logs to see which was more likely to occur unintentionally
[00:24:48] <pence> no reason not to add it though
[00:25:09] <okeefe> You can't buy 10 pax badges.
[00:25:10] <Robobuntu> you can't buy 10 pax!
[00:26:58] <pence> it also has no idea where the actual noun is (eg. 'pax badges')
[00:30:07] <pence> nor can it conjugate verbs if you say something like "I gained 10 levels"
[00:30:08] <Robobuntu> you can't gained 10 levels!
[00:31:12] <pence> although I kind of like its ignorant exhuberance

[03:08:57] <aria> It is amazing
[03:09:03] <GauntletWizard> the grammatical rules of english do tend to make it so you'll have a verb right before a quantity

[03:54:08] <pence> so the shit-talking list now contains... make him run off some file on disk somewhere so I don't have to restart him every time
[03:55:35] <GauntletWizard> eh, it's hard to do that grammar right

[03:58:51] <ruffas> you can't run 10 executables

[04:46:46] <apreche> what is in episode 7?
[04:46:50] <apreche> does he fight somethign in particular?

[04:48:41] <trogdor42> hahahahahahah
[04:48:47] <aria> I guess thats kinda late..
[04:54:15] <pence> yeah, it's nearly 1AM on the east coast, I should be sleeping
[04:54:55] <aria> So apperantly there's a company called "Just a game". And the game they're working on is called "Dead mage". It might also be the other way around
[04:55:35] <aria> Oh I was wrong. Those are both companies
[04:55:44] <aria> thats much less exciting..

[05:46:06] <aria> (Actually, I don't know timezones, so you'll have to mention your timezone too..)
[05:46:44] <okeefe> Programming! Learning iOS/Xcode.
[05:47:13] <aria> What does the learning of Xcode intake?
[05:47:27] <aria> I mean, its just a text editor with a tab where you can draw boxes and have them be clickable, right?
[05:47:59] <okeefe> There's a Stanford class on iTunes U that goes through the basics. I'm six lectures in, working on the third assignment.
[05:49:54] <aria> I see
[05:49:56] <okeefe> The gui-builder is kind of slick. Drag and drop components, control-click to connect things to code.
[05:50:05] <aria> Yup
[05:50:17] <aria> As should all gui building tools be
[05:50:26] <aria> Fuck working with GTK =P

[05:51:11] <okeefe> I don't actually have much GUI programming experience. Ancient Java and X, mainly. OS X is pretty slick so far.

[14:13:52] <aria> Do you not do buisness with a bank?
[14:14:05] <apreche> poor people don't go to banks
[14:14:09] <aria> Does the bank allow you as an costumer without having a card tied to your bank account?
[14:14:29] <apreche> some people who do go to the bank just have an ATM card
[14:14:33] <apreche> that is not a credit or debit card
[14:15:01] <aria> See, we have poor people, but even the poor people need some way to have money given to them
[14:15:09] <apreche> cash
[14:15:31] <aria> That's a hassle to document. No working place would allow that here
[14:15:48] <aria> I don't believe we have ATM cards, but I might be wrong
[14:15:51] <apreche> poor people don't work at places at are on the up and up
[14:15:59] <aria> We basically have something like that in our sim cards for phones..
[14:16:33] <aria> Oh I should mention
[14:16:43] <aria> when you pay with your phone here, it has nothing to do with the phone
[14:16:45] <aria> Or NFC
[14:16:56] <aria> its a chip next to the sim chip
[14:17:11] <aria> Any phone can pay with phone, smart phone or otherwise
[14:18:31] <aria> But you need to be on a phone network that's on good terms with your bank
[14:18:40] <aria> But any major network/bank combo will work

[15:20:53] <Bronzdragon> Hi Neo
[15:24:26] <apreche> I upgraded my parents to the latest ubunt u this weekend
[15:24:27] <Robobuntu> oo-BOON-too
[15:24:40] <apreche> They were using 10.04, I put them on 12.04, which is supported for the next 4.5 years
[15:24:41] <Bronzdragon> Did you?
[15:24:58] <Bronzdragon> That's not the latest one! But it's the correct one.
[15:25:09] <aria> I don't think 12.10 is out
[15:25:22] <aria> also, you don't want to make people who aren't linuxy use that
[15:25:45] <aria> Everyone should be using Ubuntu 12.4
[15:25:45] <Robobuntu> oo-BOON-too
[15:25:59] <aria> It makes troubleshooting for parents easier
[15:26:18] <aria> Also for dumb people you work for
[15:26:34] <Bronzdragon> Every hardrive comes with 12.4 pre-installed?
[15:26:40] <Bronzdragon> by law?
[15:26:43] <Bronzdragon> I'd support that.
[15:26:44] <Neo> morning Bronzdragon
[15:26:45] <aria> ...I'd be up for that
[15:27:16] <Bronzdragon> How is being awake treating you, Mr. Neo
[15:27:31] <Neo> with some difficulty. Late nights for work lately.
[15:28:21] <aria> I am also not currently a big fan of the being awake thing
[15:28:30] <aria> Feel like I've done enough of it for today
[15:31:41] <Bronzdragon> Aria says wikipedia is better then giving starving people rice
[15:31:48] <Bronzdragon> I disagree
[15:32:07] <aria> Im saying Wikipedia does more for the world than Unicef does
[15:32:28] <ProfPangloss|Work> If you wanna go with the literal definition of "does more for the world," then I could see it
[15:33:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> If you wanna talk about the morals behind 1 child being fed vs. 1000 people being able to learn something they otherwise didn't know, then I would argue the former is morally "better"
[15:33:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> In terms of objective impact on the world, Wikipedia > Unicef
[15:33:43] <aria> I think Wikipedia exisiting will do more to get many African countries out of poverty than Unicef in the long run.
[15:34:15] <aria> Also, while I'd agree with you, the numbers aren't 1 vs 1000
[15:34:17] <Bronzdragon> See, that part is the part where I go "wait, what"?
[15:34:20] <aria> it's at least 1 vs 10 000
[15:34:21] <Robobuntu> you can't vs 10 000!
[15:34:40] <aria> 100 000 then!
[15:34:41] <ProfPangloss|Work> The problem is, I think the information is already out there, but action being done is still at a minimum
[15:35:24] <ProfPangloss|Work> And besides that, Wikipedia is a catalyst to action
[15:35:28] <ProfPangloss|Work> Whereas Unicef is action itself
[15:35:34] <aria> If someone in poverty wants to do farming or other sorts of low tech trade, having access to Wikipedia will help them more than having access to the rest of the internet
[15:36:06] <aria> (...I'm not gonna back that up, I'm probably wrong. But Wikipedia is still great)
[15:36:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> I think that's way too narrow an example to be representative
[15:36:14] <ProfPangloss|Work> (I agree Wikipedia is great)
[15:36:35] <ProfPangloss|Work> Honestly, I don't think they're comparable
[15:36:51] <ProfPangloss|Work> Wikipedia is a tool used to achieve a goal
[15:37:05] <ProfPangloss|Work> Whereas Unicef is an organization on its own that's actively working on that goal
[15:37:07] <Bronzdragon> He donated to Wikipedia, I said "surely there must be better charities, like I dunno, firefox? Gnome?"
[15:37:11] <Bronzdragon> We coudln't think of anything better
[15:37:14] <aria> The reason we started the debate was because Bronz questioned me donating 10 bucks to Wikipedia, rather than say, a different open source software project
[15:37:14] <Robobuntu> you can't donating 10 bucks!
[15:37:23] <Bronzdragon> Then, out of the left field, he pulls unicef!
[15:38:06] <ProfPangloss|Work> See, I don't think there's anything wrong with donating to Wikipedia
[15:38:12] <aria> I tried to think of the most deserving cause
[15:38:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> As opposed to, say, making a point *not* to donate to Unicef or some other cause
[15:38:31] <Bronzdragon> Oh no, I wasn't saying that at all
[15:38:48] <aria> I didn't actually say Unicef, but someone who puts money into poor nations and helps them get better infrastructure
[15:39:39] <aria> I said this to counter argue that Wikipedia probably does more to these people than the money does

[18:00:30] <Sucrilhos> How is it going?
[18:00:58] <Sucrilhos> I think it's been about 15 years since my last IRC experience.
[18:02:17] <pence-work> the first person to roll in after the newsletter? :D
[18:02:48] <Sucrilhos> That's me
[18:02:51] <Sucrilhos> I guess
[18:03:27] <Sucrilhos> What state are you from?
[18:03:51] <pence-work> PA
[18:04:01] <Sucrilhos> I need to write down a few good things to do in the Washington DC, NY and Kentucky area for my visit in november
[18:04:10] <Sucrilhos> any ideas?
[18:05:04] <Sucrilhos> Unfortunatly The Burning con ia off my reach by a week
[18:05:10] <pence-work> yeah, I was gonna say

[18:05:27] <pence-work> hm
[18:05:30] <Sucrilhos> I wish, i leave December 3

[18:07:08] <Neito> Ni hao.
[18:07:43] <Sucrilhos> yellow
[18:07:52] <pence-work> been to NYC a couple times though. Ellis Island is a pretty neat touristy thing to visit
[18:09:15] <Sucrilhos> That's something. Philly is pretty close isn't it? Maybe if there is a good enough reason I can manage to go. What is the geekiest thing in philly?
[18:09:36] <Neito> I think Philly's a couple hours away, isn't it
[18:09:38] <Neito> ?
[18:10:33] <Sucrilhos> Yeah. Is should stay about 2 weeks in the DC, MD (Annapolis) area

[18:13:15] <Sucrilhos> Can't see it, stupid firewall in my job blocks
[18:14:39] <Neito> Have you ever seen The IT Crowd?
[18:15:26] <Sucrilhos> Not yet, but from the reviews I just saw, I will
[18:15:48] <Neito> It's a good show.
[18:16:15] <Sucrilhos> I like british comedy a lot
[18:16:53] <Sucrilhos> not really comedy, but that Top Gear is the best show ever made
[18:17:20] <Neito> I like Top Gear.
[18:17:24] <Neito> Have you ever seen Game Center CX?
[18:17:27] <pence-work> agreed on top gear
[18:17:41] <Neito> It's basically Top Gear for video games.

[18:36:26] <Origianlme8> 12Lunch sounds good...I should probably make something
[18:49:02] <creamsteak> I think Rym is losing his "24 hour money bet" on badges
[18:49:38] <pence-work> yeah, they are selling out fast, but not FAST
[18:49:40] <Bronzdragon> Oh no
[18:50:18] <pence-work> I wouldn't wait ten hours, though
[18:50:18] <Robobuntu> you can't wait ten hours!
[18:50:33] * trogdor42 snickers
[18:51:25] <creamsteak> yeah, I bought two myself and I'm not even positive I'm going :P
[18:55:56] <apreche> we don't know how many extra bages there are this time
[18:56:09] <apreche> hotels seem to be selling faster
[18:56:13] <apreche> if hotels go out before badges
[18:56:24] <apreche> it means remaining badges will only be good for people who live locally
[18:56:33] <apreche> also, I think a lot of people are buying extra badges and hotelr ooms
[18:56:38] <apreche> that they will later relinquish
[18:58:50] <pence-work> I stayed at the holiday inn brookline last year. No gaming in the hallways or anything, but they did run a shuttle to and from the BCEC
[19:06:34] <Sucrilhos> This sucks but this is not an issue for me this year. Maybe next year I can sync the visit to my mom with a PAX.

[19:20:18] <creamsteak> the whole no-cost to make multiple hotel reservations fucks with things a bit
[19:20:30] <creamsteak> I know more than one person that booked two things, waiting for their preference to open up
[19:21:04] <trogdor42> creamsteak: as in, booked two things but actually intending to get something else entirely if possible?
[19:21:29] <creamsteak> like booked friday/saturday at the westin, and thurs-sun at the seaport because there were no thurs/sundays at the westin
[19:21:43] <trogdor42> ahh
[19:21:45] <pence-work> hm
[19:21:48] <creamsteak> and if they don't get those two days at the westin, just plan to do all four at the seaport
[19:22:04] <creamsteak> fucks with the whole system
[19:22:07] <pence-work> any advantage to the closer hotels other than the proximity? Gaming in the lobby, stuff like that?
[19:22:22] <creamsteak> westin is super sweet for gaming
[19:22:27] <creamsteak> renaissance was meh
[19:22:30] <creamsteak> havn't been in the seaport
[19:22:42] <pence-work> last year was pretty much
[19:22:45] <creamsteak> westin is worth all the things
[19:22:53] <pence-work> we stayed in the BCEC gaming all day
[19:22:57] <creamsteak> I hear seaport is nice
[19:23:03] <pence-work> and by the time we got back to the hotel we were beat
[19:23:06] <trogdor42> nothing stopping seaport people from chilling at westin though to play games though, right?
[19:23:15] <creamsteak> no that's fine
[19:23:27] <creamsteak> just kinda nice to not have to walk outside of the enclosed environment
[19:23:27] <trogdor42> you just have to deal with walking to seaport when you're done
[19:23:30] <trogdor42> yeah
[19:23:36] <creamsteak> if you want to game/drink in your pajamas like ro :P
[19:23:45] <pence-work> ahh
[19:23:53] <pence-work> that sounds ideal
[19:24:09] <creamsteak> it's the way to roll if you can
[19:24:19] <creamsteak> you can also wear t-shirts all day except to go out for dinner
[19:24:28] <creamsteak> no need for a coat check or whatevs
[19:24:45] <creamsteak> renaissance was close but not worth it imho
[19:26:15] <creamsteak> I only managed Westin Fri/Sat at the moment, but I'm going to watch the listings, supposedly stuff crops up often enough
[19:26:28] <creamsteak> can't believe I didn't get on the pax irc earlier yesterday...
[19:26:58] <pence-work> so I'm hearing, stay at the Westin, the Seaport, or go for cheap (Holiday Inn Brookline is half the price)
[19:27:14] <creamsteak> yeah, that's probably the way to go :P
[19:27:21] <creamsteak> or go for good location
[19:27:45] <creamsteak> wouldn't mind being close to Boston proper as opposed to the tourist peninsula
[19:29:40] <pence-work> the coolest part of Boston was harvard, visited last year and had dinner in a place called Grendel's Den
[19:29:43] <Origianlme8> 12Man, all this talk about PAX East is making me sad. I still haven't been able to attend a PAX (East or Prime). :\
[19:30:03] <pence-work> there were like a dozen of us, we were half the bar
[19:30:20] <trogdor42> 3-day badges are still on sale, Origianlme8
[19:30:35] <Origianlme8> 12Yea, but it is on the other side of the country from me.
[19:30:50] <Origianlme8> 12Have to wait till Prime next year and hope that work doesn't interfere again.
[19:31:30] <GauntletWizard> I'm surprised it still hasn't sold out yet
[19:31:39] <trogdor42> yeah
[19:31:39] <apreche> I think they way upped the badge count
[19:31:40] <trogdor42> baffling
[19:31:40] <GauntletWizard> three day passes are finally "low"
[19:31:58] <Origianlme8> 12Either that, or there is a glitch like I/O had this last year.
[19:31:59] <okeefe> I thought of another Rym-ism we could add to the bot. SIMULTANEOUSLY
[19:32:05] <trogdor42> apreche: how can they afford to up the badge count without breaking fire code laws?
[19:32:22] <apreche> trogdor42: you are assuming that the count was already at the limit
[19:32:30] <pence-work> there's already some code in the bot that splits messages it receives simultaneously
[19:32:34] <creamsteak> they can't really, till the next annex gets added
[19:32:45] <Origianlme8> 12okeefe: Shouldn't that be "SSIIIIIIIMULTANEOUSLY"?
[19:32:46] <creamsteak> they will also be able to up it when the additional hotels get added to the complex
[19:33:08] <okeefe> Also Scott's penchant for pluralizing nouns, but I don't know how to make that interesting.
[19:33:14] <creamsteak> when it's a godamn megacomplex with four adjoined hotels... oh god the awesome
[19:33:14] <pence-work> maybe if it gets two identical messages at once
[19:33:27] <apreche> what do you mean my penchant?
[19:33:49] <creamsteak> I think that's a general geekism... not just scott's thing...
[19:34:05] <apreche> give an example of this
[19:34:07] <okeefe> You occasionally say "monies" instead of "money", for example.
[19:34:08] <creamsteak> "internets"
[19:34:24] <trogdor42> creamsteak: well, Internets was GW Bush
[19:34:26] <apreche> eveyrone says that
[19:34:35] <apreche> it can even be true in many ways
[19:34:38] * creamsteak agrees with apreche.
[19:34:38] <apreche> there is only one Internet
[19:34:45] <apreche> but actually, if you want to refer to Internet and Internet 2
[19:34:47] <apreche> that is Internets
[19:34:52] <apreche> an internet, lowercase, is something else
[19:34:56] <apreche> the Internet is an internet
[19:35:02] <apreche> but not all internets are the Internet
[19:35:13] <Origianlme8> 12apreche: That's not true, you have to count those countries who built their own internets. :P
[19:35:44] <apreche> anyway
[19:35:54] <apreche> when someone says "the internets" they are referring to all internets
[19:36:00] <apreche> of which the Internet is one
[19:36:32] <creamsteak> I think there's a bit of a pluralizing meme to things.
[19:36:37] <creamsteak> But whatever, add it.
[19:36:52] <apreche> monies is a valid word as well
[19:37:24] <okeefe> It's not my bot. "Simultaneously" is a uncommon word in normal conversation, though, so I don't think it'd pop up enough to be amusing.
[19:37:44] <apreche> you people still don't know where SIMULTANEOUSLY is from
[19:37:45] <apreche> lol
[19:37:49] <okeefe> I'm not saying they're invalid words, just that you use them oddly.
[19:37:50] <creamsteak> you should see pax IRC bot... the thing has gained a horrible sentience
[19:37:51] <apreche> triple inside joke
[19:37:58] <okeefe> It's a Don Hertzfeldt joke.
[19:38:12] <ProfPangloss|Work> In THREEEEE DEEEEEEEE
[19:38:13] <apreche> who?
[19:38:22] <ProfPangloss|Work> apreche: The guy what who made Rejected
[19:38:29] <apreche> ProfPangloss|Work: never heard of it
[19:39:05] <apreche> is that a movie or TV show?
[19:39:07] <pence-work> I'll take the solipsistic view and say it came from geeknights, obviously
[19:39:11] <okeefe> It's a short.
[19:39:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's an animator, his most famous(?) work is a short film called Rejected
[19:39:33] <okeefe> Although he did complete his Everything is OK trilogy just a few months ago.
[19:39:36] <ProfPangloss|Work> There was one moment on a show where Rym definitely made a reference to it - "I'm a consumer whore!" "And how!"
[19:39:39] <apreche> whatever it is, it's not the source of SIMULTANEOUSLY
[19:39:47] <apreche> though I will tell you it IS from an animated work
[19:40:40] <okeefe> It is a simple black on white line drawing sort of style, apreche?
[19:40:49] <apreche> uh, no
[19:40:59] <apreche> are you trying to think of SPOON IS TOO BIG
[19:41:04] <ProfPangloss|Work> apreche: This guy right here - http://www.youtube.com
[19:41:10] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yeah that's where spoon is too big is from
[19:41:23] <creamsteak> is it the video about quantum stuff where you can exist in all planes SIMULTANEOUSLY?
[19:41:31] <apreche> no
[19:41:37] <apreche> not even close
[19:41:41] <creamsteak> Imagine a dot, this dot contains ALL THE UNIVERSES EVER.
[19:42:08] <creamsteak> Now imagine another dot. And a line connecting these dots. AM I BLOWING YOUR MIND YET?
[19:42:35] <creamsteak> NOW FOLD THE PIECE OF PAPER IN YOUR MIND THAT I'M DRAWING THE LINE ON! DO IT!

[20:13:12] <creamsteak> http://www.wired.com
[20:13:26] <creamsteak> I'm planning to pick up dark ages and a base card set... at some point
[20:13:37] <apreche> solution: https://www.ipredator.se
[20:13:49] <apreche> you either buy all the Dominion expansions or not
[20:13:53] <apreche> it's kidn of silly to just own some of them
[20:14:01] <creamsteak> it's an experiment
[20:14:10] <trogdor42> creamsteak: best reddit comment on that: "And then no one will ever pirate anything again. The end."
[20:14:11] <apreche> owning just a base set is ok for non-serious people
[20:14:16] <pence-work> about 50 plays; I have seaside, prosperity, and just picked up intrigue
[20:14:24] <pence-work> used to play on isotropic but it's been a while
[20:14:26] <creamsteak> by base set I don't even mean vanilla dominion
[20:14:33] <pence-work> probably have another couple dozen plays there
[20:14:34] <creamsteak> just the base cards (money/victory)
[20:14:36] <apreche> if you play it a lot, and will continue to play it a lot, then get all the cards
[20:14:49] <pence-work> yeah, it's just a matter of what I pick up first at this point
[20:15:06] <apreche> if you can't afford to just get them all
[20:15:07] <creamsteak> apreche: your motives and mine in this context probably differ
[20:15:15] <apreche> go get used copies on the cheap
[20:17:03] <pence-work> hm... only reason I've been avoiding shotgunning everything into my collection is to make sure we spend some time with new cards as they get added

[20:17:54] <apreche> just use one of those deck randomizers
[20:18:35] <creamsteak> I can see the internets... ALL OF THEM!
[20:18:58] <creamsteak> pence-work: depends on what you're trying to get from the game
[20:19:22] <creamsteak> something can be said for taking steps with the process, dark ages specifically seems to contain cards intended to shake up the metagame
[20:19:38] <creamsteak> so throwing that in too soon will likely distort some things
[20:20:08] <creamsteak> something can also be said for skipping alchemy or prosperity specifically depending on what your going for
[20:20:59] <creamsteak> are you playing the game of dominion where your goal is to always have new things and have to learn and experiment every game, or the game of dominion mastery where you want to know all the cards and know all the crazy card combinations?

[20:22:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> So, something to get looked at *now*
[20:23:35] <ProfPangloss|Work> But anyway my neck is stiff as a post and sore as a canker, and I've got 4 hours of sit-at-a-computer-until-somebody-needs-me work left.
[20:23:36] <ProfPangloss|Work> What do
[20:23:55] <trogdor42> drugs
[20:24:03] <creamsteak> massage and excercise the muscles related to the pain?
[20:24:17] <trogdor42> ProfPangloss|Work: i'm not giving you a massage
[20:24:42] <creamsteak> Sounds like you need to amputate.
[20:24:53] <trogdor42> your whole body
[20:24:57] <trogdor42> just amputate your body
[20:25:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> I actually have a 30-minute massage gift coupon thing right next to me
[20:25:18] <ProfPangloss|Work> trogdor42: So, move my body from where it is now to a location where it wasn't previously?
[20:25:34] <trogdor42> no like
[20:25:34] <ProfPangloss|Work> But that doesn't help the next 4 hours D:
[20:25:35] <trogdor42> cut it off
[20:25:37] <trogdor42> just cut your body off
[20:25:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> From
[20:25:41] <ProfPangloss|Work> ?
[20:25:45] <trogdor42> from your neck
[20:25:48] <creamsteak> your body obviously
[20:25:55] <creamsteak> damn trogdor42 way to ruin a joke
[20:25:56] <ProfPangloss|Work> Wait hang on you guys
[20:25:59] <trogdor42> :(
[20:26:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> trogdor42:
[20:26:09] <creamsteak> KEEP BEATING THIS HORSE
[20:26:13] <ProfPangloss|Work> I have an idea
[20:26:16] <ProfPangloss|Work> But I can't
[20:26:17] <ProfPangloss|Work> Is it
[20:26:17] <trogdor42> ProfPangloss|Work:
[20:26:19] <ProfPangloss|Work> No see
[20:26:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> Have you seen the Nestle logo?
[20:26:33] <trogdor42> it's a lot like the dishonored logo
[20:26:36] <trogdor42> but it's the H instead of the N
[20:26:38] <ProfPangloss|Work> What with the N
[20:26:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> Instead of the H
[20:26:41] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yeah
[20:28:10] <ProfPangloss|Work> I'm just gonna do that but with my body
[20:28:15] <ProfPangloss|Work> I think it's called 'stretching'
[20:28:52] <nine> Pang!
[20:29:38] <ProfPangloss|Work> Heya nine
[20:29:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> Welcome back (again(again(again)))
[20:29:55] <nine> ...
[20:30:19] <creamsteak> again.
[20:30:21] <nine> I hate/love/fuck you.
[20:30:28] <ProfPangloss|Work> 'Coo
[20:30:46] <ProfPangloss|Work> nine: Joe Boomer is being a butt and not buying a PAX ticket
[20:30:57] <ProfPangloss|Work> Even though he already has a guaranteed ride there and a place to stay
[20:31:03] <ProfPangloss|Work> His excuse "I don't have enough money"
[20:31:14] <nine> >Joe
[20:31:14] <ProfPangloss|Work> But we went to Wegmans last night, and on a whim, he bought "rose water"
[20:31:18] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yes
[20:31:19] <nine> >not having enough money
[20:31:23] <ProfPangloss|Work> Right?
[20:31:25] <nine> KID DON'T EVEN NEED TO PAY FOR ANYTHING!
[20:31:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yep
[20:31:37] <trogdor42> he also has no source of income
[20:31:37] <nine> ROSE WATER?
[20:31:42] <nine> HE BOUGHT FUCKING ROSE WATER?
[20:31:42] <trogdor42> yeah it's like water
[20:31:44] <trogdor42> but from a rose
[20:31:44] <nine> WHAT THE.
[20:31:55] <ProfPangloss|Work> No seriously, he got like this little glass bottle of water, pressed from rose petals
[20:31:56] <nine> YOU WENT TO BUY DOUGHNUTS!
[20:31:58] <pence-work> is it colored pink?
[20:32:02] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh yes, that too
[20:32:03] <ProfPangloss|Work> pence-work: Nope
[20:32:09] <trogdor42> it's clear
[20:32:10] <ProfPangloss|Work> It smells really nice, but just tastes like normal water
[20:32:11] <nine> JOE BOOOOOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!
[20:32:16] <creamsteak> how much is this "rose water"
[20:32:20] <nine> brb, spamming Joe on all channels possible.
[20:32:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> Like $3
[20:32:26] <trogdor42> for a really tiny bottle
[20:32:26] <creamsteak> you kids and your crazy sex drugs
[20:32:36] <ProfPangloss|Work> For about 1/4th a 50 cent bottle of water
[20:32:53] <pence-work> D:
[20:33:01] <nine> He's playing From Dust, the dick.
[20:33:10] <trogdor42> legit or pirated?
[20:33:12] <ProfPangloss|Work> He also went down the cracker/cookie isle and, when he found some cookies he liked, literally took his arms and sweeped as many boxes as possible into his basket
[20:33:16] <ProfPangloss|Work> (and then bought most of them)
[20:33:21] <nine> Legit on Steam.
[20:33:23] <ProfPangloss|Work> The kid can afford Pax
[20:33:25] <nine> The lunatic.
[20:33:31] <nine> Fuck that double DRM.
[20:33:49] <nine> AHAHAHAHAHA, sounds like Joe on the cookies.
[20:33:57] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's eating them now?
[20:34:01] <nine> But teach him that the spice of life is variation.
[20:34:02] <ProfPangloss|Work> What a butt
[20:34:04] <nine> iunno
[20:34:05] <nine> Is he?
[20:34:11] <nine> He's busy playing From Dust.
[20:34:15] <ProfPangloss|Work> Couldn't tell you, I'm at work
[20:34:18] <nine> And not responding to my triple hail for him.
[20:34:19] <trogdor42> you can eat cookies and play vidjigames
[20:34:27] <trogdor42> the two activities are not mutually exclusive
[20:34:28] <nine> We're aware Trog.
[20:34:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> I GChat messaged him
[20:34:32] <pence-work> this sounds unreasonable, tell him to come to pax
[20:34:39] <ProfPangloss|Work> You should help us with that
[20:34:40] <pence-work> I don't know him but I can guarantee it's better than rose water
[20:34:42] <nine> "JOE BOOMEEEEEEEEEEEEEER!!!!"
[20:34:42] <ProfPangloss|Work> Message him on Steam or something
[20:34:45] <nine> All you need.
[20:34:50] <nine> Did so already.
[20:35:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> Also Trogdor and anyone else who can
[20:35:14] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh also nine you should fly out for PAX East
[20:36:21] <nine> Joe Boomer now bought water at $1 a drop.
[20:36:26] <nine> Because it's pink
[20:36:28] <nine> Assumedly.
[20:36:34] <pence-work> that's the thing, it's not pink
[20:36:37] <ProfPangloss|Work> No actually it looked like normal water
[20:36:39] <nine> Pang, pay my costs and I will.
[20:36:41] <pence-work> sounds like a scam
[20:36:41] <ProfPangloss|Work> There was no reason for him to buy it
[20:36:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> Except that it says "rose water"
[20:36:59] <nine> It's now pink in the canon of nine.
[20:37:10] <ProfPangloss|Work> nine I will pay you exactly 25 cents for some gum
[20:37:19] <ProfPangloss|Work> That's all your important expenses, right?
[20:37:22] <nine> My costs are significantly more than that.
[20:37:33] <pence-work> http://en.wikipedia.org that bottle is pink, at least
[20:37:34] <nine> I never talked about important expenses.
[20:37:37] <nine> Just costs.
[20:37:49] <nine> And I only buy $0.30 gum.
[20:38:03] <nine> 30 gum!
[20:38:41] <ProfPangloss|Work> Ooo, "Rose Syrup"
[20:38:43] <ProfPangloss|Work> That sounds good
[20:38:50] <nine> Probably disgusting.
[20:38:52] <ProfPangloss|Work> I think I will have Joe Boomer make that
[20:38:55] <nine> And worse for you than HFCS.
[20:38:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> And then I will have it with my ice cream
[20:39:10] <nine> Rose Syrup's probably the reason why everything has HFCS in the US.
[20:39:12] <trogdor42> http://s14.postimage.org
[20:39:20] <nine> HFCS isn't as bad as Rose Syrup!
[20:39:21] <creamsteak> >_<

[20:40:39] <trogdor42> possibly also applicable
[20:40:50] <ProfPangloss|Work> trogdor42: No, then you'd want Gojira
[20:41:06] <ProfPangloss|Work> Or alternately Mastodon
[20:41:12] <ProfPangloss|Work> SPLIT YOUR LUNGS WITH BLOOD AND THUNDERRRRR

[20:42:36] <creamsteak> my big maybe is magfest
[20:42:57] <creamsteak> can kinda go cheap, but don't really want to deal with the lack of comfort involved in going cheap
[20:43:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh yeah that
[20:43:42] <ProfPangloss|Work> trogdor42: If you end up sticking around on the best coast, we'll do a Magfest
[20:43:51] <nine> EU west coast?
[20:43:56] <nine> When the fuck would you even get here?
[20:44:30] * creamsteak is feeling extra manipulative today, what's with that?
[20:45:01] <creamsteak> oh noes... I hope I'm not turning into one of them thar internet trolls...
[20:45:03] <nine> It feels good, does it not?
[20:45:11] <creamsteak> I should go out into some sunlight...
[20:45:21] <nine> You're in horrible company. We'll take no care of you. :3
[20:45:25] <pence-work> going to magfest for the first time this year
[20:45:52] <pence-work> anticipating much awesomeness
[20:47:23] <apreche> you spelled it wrong
[20:47:25] <apreche> it's MAGFest
[20:48:05] * apreche uses Colossus roar
[20:48:18] <nine> You spelled "you" wrong. Words are capitalized at the start of a sentence, apreche.
[20:48:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> Zing
[20:48:46] <pence-work> you never know, I could be going to some podunk fest
[20:48:49] <nine> Before you rebutt, that is your name. ProfPangloss|Work properly capitalized his nickname.
[20:49:03] <nine> He's also a liar, not a professor.
[20:49:36] <ProfPangloss|Work> Accurate.
[20:49:44] <ProfPangloss|Work> Though I am an optimist. :3
[20:49:51] <nine> You're also a dick.

[20:50:27] <apreche> I actually thought about that lack of capitalization and was too lazy to change it.
[20:50:30] <nine> 4notgreen
[20:51:21] <nine> A pedant who isn't pedantic about his pedanting!
[20:52:50] <pence-work> capitalizing things in IRC is a confusing business
[20:53:23] <ProfPangloss|Work> Browsing r/cablefail or r/techsupportgore at work is a horrifying venture
[20:53:29] <creamsteak> 15:52 <@heels> goodbye passes.

[20:59:15] <trogdor42> cybersecurity something or other
[20:59:22] <ProfPangloss|Work> http://www.techdirt.com
[20:59:24] <ProfPangloss|Work> Best part though
[20:59:38] <trogdor42> biggest thing that bothers me is that they insist on calling it "cybersecurity"
[20:59:45] <trogdor42> makes it sound like a shitty 90s movie
[20:59:54] <ProfPangloss|Work> He says it has to pass because of a "mysterious threat" which "keeps him up at night," but he "can't publicize the information on it" or else he'll be jailed
[21:00:09] <ProfPangloss|Work> I'm not even making this up
[21:00:21] <nine> Scare tactics? No waaaaaaaaaaay.
[21:00:25] <nine> Surprise.jpg
[21:00:27] <trogdor42> YOU SHOULD SUPPORT BILL X BECAUSE APPEAL TO FEAR
[21:00:33] <ProfPangloss|Work> That's barely scare tactics
[21:00:34] <trogdor42> news at 11
[21:00:35] <ProfPangloss|Work> More like ghost story tactics
[21:00:39] <trogdor42> hahahahaha
[21:00:54] <nine> ProfPangloss|Work: US citizens/media will react the same fucking way.
[21:01:21] <creamsteak> FEAR
[21:01:42] <nine> Any minute now FOX will make an emergency broadcast stating the commies are about to steal all of US's money via the internet in your own home.
[21:02:10] <ProfPangloss|Work> See nine I'm still optimistic and will suggest that's an overstatement
[21:02:32] <ProfPangloss|Work> Though I'm positive the media will jump on the story and report it just as he stated
[21:02:41] <nine> Stop.
[21:02:45] <trogdor42> you'd think conservatives wouldn't want this bill because it involves the government invading their privacy and big government and stuff
[21:02:48] <trogdor42> but no
[21:02:50] <nine> Come back to Europe, where that stuff makes sense.
[21:02:55] <nine> Being optimistic and so on.
[21:02:56] <trogdor42> they're too busy being scared to even know what they believe
[21:02:57] <ProfPangloss|Work> And then we'll all laugh and go back to playing Borderlands 2 and having some rum

[21:07:02] <nine> I frequent 1, ONE, chatroom on IRC.
[21:07:12] <nine> And I have set everything on ignore in that channel.
[21:07:17] <trogdor42> I frequent ten chatrooms

[21:16:12] <nine> And PAX it up.
[21:16:14] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's not responding to me on GTalk
[21:16:16] <ProfPangloss|Work> So I'm powerless
[21:16:25] <nine> He's probably half-dead/high on his bed.
[21:16:28] <ProfPangloss|Work> Also 3-day is sold out, so now it's another $35 for the third day

[21:17:38] <creamsteak> kinda wish it was on easter again, that slowed down the take rate I think

[21:17:46] <ProfPangloss|Work> Soooo
[21:17:49] <ProfPangloss|Work> It's not our fault

[21:31:16] <nine> Only your actions were non-coloured though.
[21:31:22] <nine> Regular text was crap-blue.

[21:38:39] <Apsup> Oh noes nine has found it's way here.
[21:38:53] <Originalme8> Is it still "crap blue"?
[21:38:59] <creamsteak> nope
[21:39:08] <creamsteak> Apsup: I blame you.
[21:39:08] <Originalme8> Finally, sometimes I hate this client.
[21:39:15] <creamsteak> client?
[21:39:34] <creamsteak> oh sorry, I just exist in the internet. I'm only a real boy twice a year at PAXen.
[21:39:51] <nine> >it's
[21:39:56] <Originalme8> I use the Trillian chat client on Windows when at work. Works well with most things, IRC not so much.
[21:40:39] <nine> Trillian is great.
[21:40:49] <nine> If you still use 20 chat names.
[21:41:25] <Originalme8> Sadly, I have too. So many clients that use different services. Trillian for Windows and Pigeon on everything else.
[21:42:07] <nine> Just fuck it.
[21:42:23] <nine> If people want to reach you, let them e-mail you, or contact you one 1 specific messenger.
[21:42:29] <nine> Skype in my case.
[21:42:44] <nine> Even though that's getting crappier.
[21:42:53] <trogdor42> yeah skype's going down the shitter

[21:44:39] <aria> Nine!
[21:44:43] <aria> I like nine!
[21:45:02] <nine> o5/////o
[21:45:35] <nine> Does that mean I have a fan?
[21:45:50] <aria> I suppose
[21:45:57] <Originalme8> Or a stalker, depends on how you look at it.
[21:46:14] <creamsteak> I'll be your fan.
[21:46:15] <aria> Im not knowledgeable yet to be a stalker
[21:46:16] <nine> Stalker would be abusable.
[21:46:30] <nine> No travel costs for free sex.
[21:46:40] <aria> But if you would like a stalker, I can probably stalk you
[21:47:00] <nine> I'd just hurt you, and myself.
[21:47:13] <nine> Mostly myself I guess.
[21:47:24] <nine> 5<3 fans.
[21:47:25] <aria> You'd bike off a cliff?
[21:47:33] <nine> What's a cliff?
[21:48:01] <Originalme8> Didn't Jay Leno have a cliff?
[21:48:03] <aria> Bumps in the road as a cause of too many cars driving on it without new asphalt being applied
[21:48:15] * nine blinks.
[21:48:32] <nine> You call that cliff in English?
[21:48:36] <nine> Pussies.
[21:48:57] <aria> Well you're dutch
[21:49:08] <aria> You wouldn't have seen any thing else cliff-like
[21:49:35] <creamsteak> alright time to... do the things.
[21:49:50] <aria> Dark Souls?
[21:49:56] <nine> I might have. :(
[21:50:05] -!- creamsteak has quit [Quit: doing_stuff]
[21:50:24] <nine> Dark Souls!
[21:50:46] <aria> Fair enough. Its like whena building is tall, and you're at the top of it. Looking down from the side, you're surrounded by cliffs
[21:51:01] <nine> We call that water over here.
[21:51:04] <aria> although its usually not man-made. Well often it is, but its stone anyway
[21:51:11] <nine> ...
[21:51:23] <nine> When I'm on top of a tall building I'm surrounded by water.
[21:51:25] <nine> It's wet.
[21:51:31] <nine> You might have come across it.
[21:51:55] <aria> Water is often at the buttom of cliffs
[21:52:09] * nine blinks.
[21:52:14] <aria> But there is cliff seperating you from the water
[21:52:19] <Originalme8> Not here, dry sand is usually at the bottom of cliffs here.
[21:52:34] <aria> We usually have moose
[21:52:37] <nine> Dry sand?
[21:52:40] <nine> YOU HEATHEN!
[21:52:45] <nine> BURN, BURN HIM!
[21:52:52] <aria> Moose are pretty badass, they'll just walk up a mountain
[21:52:55] <Originalme8> Meh, I'm used to the burn.
[21:53:07] <nine> Not this burning.
[21:53:19] <aria> Or walk a hole into a mountain and walk up at an 45 degree angle from the insisde
[21:54:00] <nine> Why'd you do that?
[21:54:07] <nine> Just swim up.
[21:54:19] <aria> They are moose, moose don't give a fuck
[21:54:24] <Originalme8> Because swimming in sand sucks.
[21:54:31] <aria> They just swim through rock
[21:54:37] <nine> Oh, you were talking about the moose.
[21:54:46] <nine> Moose are goats!
[21:55:00] <nine> Originalme8: you don't swim in sand!
[21:55:03] <nine> Swim in water.
[21:55:04] <aria> They're 10 goats!
[21:55:05] <Robobuntu> you can't re 10 goats!
[21:55:06] <nine> Like normal people.
[21:55:14] <Originalme8> No water here.
[21:55:19] <nine> 10 GOATS! OH SHIT!
[21:55:28] <nine> No water?
[21:55:30] <nine> How do you life?
[21:55:33] <Originalme8> None
[21:55:36] <Originalme8> magic
[21:55:47] <nine> o:
[21:55:59] <nine> Teach me great magician.
[21:56:10] <aria> Nine has so much water they had to build a roof for the country. You should take some of his water
[21:56:24] <Originalme8> I should, would be nice.
[21:56:31] <nine> NO!
[21:56:37] <nine> THIS IS OUR WATER!
[21:56:51] <Originalme8> Nine, all you have to do is stop drinking the water. Soon you will become impervious the withdrawal symptoms.
[21:56:52] <nine> YOU CAN'T TAKE IT FROM US!
[21:57:00] <aria> But you'll drown in it all! In your own greed! D=
[21:57:04] <nine> you can buy some though.
[21:57:07] <nine> We'd like moneys.
[21:57:13] <nine> >Dutch
[21:57:16] <nine> >drown in water
[21:57:19] <nine> Are you high?
[21:57:22] <Originalme8> Don't have moneys. Have some monies thoug, will that work?
[21:57:40] <nine> Don't know.
[21:57:41] <aria> Well yes, Norway, we don't have a straight patch of land. I'm standing on the top of a mountain
[21:57:44] <nine> I don't sell our water.
[21:58:02] <Originalme8> Anyways, I am officially off work and it is time to go get some exercise :)
[21:58:13] <nine> Good luck.
[21:58:20] <Originalme8> Thanks...I'll need it
[21:58:23] <Originalme8> See you later

[21:59:10] <aria> Ruffas!
[21:59:16] <aria> Hello
[21:59:30] <aria> Will you punch the bear in Originalme8's place?
[21:59:47] <ruffas> any particular reason?
[21:59:50] <nine> He's getting rowdy, please hurry up!
[21:59:55] <nine> QUICKLY OHGOD!@
[22:00:02] <aria> Stople his girlfriend probably
[22:00:04] <nine> HE'S ABOUT THE MAUL THE GOLDFISHES!
[22:00:11] <aria> NO p there
[22:00:16] <nine> AAAAAAAAAAAAAAR-
[22:00:35] <ruffas> wait, punch the bear?
[22:00:38] <ruffas> what bear?
[22:00:48] <nine> HURRYYYY-AAAAAAAAARGH!
[22:00:53] <aria> Yes
[22:00:53] <ruffas> there's no bear here, just the beeeeeeeees
[22:00:55] <aria> In the face
[22:01:00] <aria> D=
[22:01:06] <nine> BEHIND THE BEES!
[22:01:06] <aria> Those are mucher harder to punch
[22:01:46] <ruffas> have you tried talking with the bear?
[22:01:51] <ruffas> maybe training under it?
[22:02:26] <ruffas> the bear's probably a good teacher
[22:04:02] <ruffas> pokemon black/white 2 is a little broken because they give you a legendary right off the bat
[22:04:08] <ruffas> it's only level 15, but still
[22:04:21] <aria> Eh, who likes grinding anyway =P
[22:04:29] <aria> Might as well get to your goal early
[22:04:34] <aria> Which legendary is it?
[22:04:45] <aria> And I dunno, I don't have any beef with the bear
[22:05:01] <aria> Let's try talking to him. About how he's about to get punched in the face
[22:05:07] <ruffas> genesect
[22:05:13] <ruffas> it's pretty cool actually
[22:05:24] <nine> ;_; Bear so mean.
[22:06:03] <ruffas> what Bear do to you?
[22:06:11] <ruffas> is it Sir Bearington perhaps?
[22:06:17] <nine> Only tried to eat me because you won't punch it in the face.
[22:06:18] <ruffas> he's the best totally not a bear
[22:06:20] <nine> You're mean too.
[22:07:15] <ruffas> well why was it trying to eat you?
[22:07:23] <ruffas> did you take it's hat?
[22:07:29] <aria> Wait wait, there isn't any downside to your PC case being too large, right?
[22:07:44] <aria> I guess fans would take more to power...
[22:08:13] <nine> It took my hat. ;_;
[22:08:22] <nine> Aria, do you take power?
[22:08:44] <ruffas> obviously
[22:08:48] <aria> Yes. I cost a sammich/hour to operate
[22:08:50] <ruffas> he tries to take all the power
[22:09:00] <nine> I don't have that much power. :(
[22:09:02] <ruffas> you must take a lot of poops
[22:09:47] <ProfPangloss|Work> trogdor42: So I just helped one of the interpreting classes set up their ASL -> English midterm
[22:09:54] <ProfPangloss|Work> Including sitting in on their prep
[22:10:12] <ruffas> cool
[22:10:22] <ruffas> did you try to fend off the bear?
[22:10:27] <ProfPangloss|Work> Kinda cool, their prep was sitting around with a list of proper nouns from the presentation they'll have to know, and working on getting the proper pronunciation
[22:10:50] <ruffas> wait, ASL pronunciation or English?
[22:11:09] <ProfPangloss|Work> English
[22:11:26] <ruffas> cause i picture coaching ASL pronunciation being like "No, you need to move your arm more here, like this."
[22:11:29] <aria> Advanced... silly language?
[22:11:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> They do general ASL classes to build fluency, then respective sequences in translating ASL into English, and another one doing the opposite
[22:11:47] <ProfPangloss|Work> aria: American Sign Language
[22:12:16] <aria> Oh. Is that anything like common sign language?
[22:12:19] <ProfPangloss|Work> ruffas: That's generally covered in the general ASL classes, the interpretation is much more focused on handling that and English simultaneously
[22:12:31] <ruffas> makes sense
[22:12:42] <ProfPangloss|Work> aria: Common Sign Language?
[22:12:43] <ruffas> there is no common sign language as far as i know
[22:12:55] <ruffas> hell, ASL is different from AASL
[22:12:59] <aria> There is "sign language"
[22:13:07] <ruffas> there isn't, actually
[22:13:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> ruffas: Well technically there's International Sign Language, which sort of takes little bits from different sign languages around the world, with the intention of having a shared language
[22:13:35] <ruffas> american sign language is different from african american sign language is different from british sign language
[22:13:39] <ProfPangloss|Work> That said, it tends to only be offered as an elective option to the majority of deaf people
[22:13:43] <ruffas> but how often is that used?
[22:13:54] <ProfPangloss|Work> *is different from French sign language is different from Russian sign language, etc
[22:14:14] <ruffas> i only used those because they're all English speaking countries
[22:14:15] <ProfPangloss|Work> Apparently ISL is fairly common at the greater international Deaf conferences and such
[22:14:37] <ruffas> makes sense
[22:14:42] <ProfPangloss|Work> And one of my deaf co-workers knows some ISL, though he is fluent in ASL
[22:15:36] <ProfPangloss|Work> There's a shit-ton of diversity within the Deaf communities, including accents
[22:15:47] <ruffas> that's what i mean; will your average Johnny Deaf Guy know ISL in addition to nativeSL
[22:15:48] <nine> >accents
[22:15:52] <nine> >without spoken word
[22:15:57] <nine> Ain't humans ridiculous?
[22:15:58] <ProfPangloss|Work> Even within the same "sign language," there's plenty of diversity, people signing different words differently
[22:16:11] <aria> Wait wait
[22:16:17] <ProfPangloss|Work> nine: No seriously, within ASL alone, there are 31 different signs for "birthday," which tend to be different regionally.
[22:16:21] <aria> Now I dont' wanna sound like a jerk or anything
[22:16:29] <aria> But don't most people talk sign language sloppily?
[22:16:40] <aria> Cause if its close enough, youll get it anyway
[22:16:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> Ehhhhhhh
[22:16:50] <aria> and its effort to do it 100% right always?
[22:16:55] <ruffas> don't most people speak any language slopilly?
[22:16:57] <aria> So how does an accent work then?
[22:17:07] <aria> Less so than Id imagine sign language
[22:17:17] <ProfPangloss|Work> With anything from slight-heavily noticeable differences between common signs
[22:17:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> And hell, there's even slang
[22:17:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> The sign for "download," for instance
[22:17:45] <nine> Don't most native speakers write sloppily?
[22:17:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> The formal sign is rather non-intuitive, and kinda hard to distinguish from other, similar signs
[22:18:37] <ProfPangloss|Work> So, many computer-savvy deaf youths have taken to switching the sign slightly - you start with a "D" up high, and lower your hand as it changes to an "L"
[22:18:38] <ProfPangloss|Work> For DL
[22:18:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> And swap it up with UL going up for upload
[22:19:02] <aria> Nine: But we recognize this, and don't count "duin this. i said that 2 u 2" as an accent
[22:19:12] <aria> Just as annoying spelling
[22:19:13] <ProfPangloss|Work> Imagine that, but regional as opposed to generational in terms of who's using which sign
[22:19:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> And you have accents within sign language
[22:20:03] <ruffas> most people don't write the same way they speak
[22:20:12] <ruffas> i certainly don't write "southern"
[22:20:13] <ProfPangloss|Work> aria: It's fairly difficult to explain accents within sign language without a common understanding of basic ASL, and significantly more difficult without visual examples
[22:20:42] <aria> Well I understand the /basics/, thats not the problem
[22:20:51] <aria> You wave your arms around, it means words
[22:20:59] <aria> Same as "you grunt, it means words"
[22:21:05] <aria> The basics aren't the problem
[22:21:17] <ProfPangloss|Work> aria: Basically, accents are entirely different signs for a common concept, which may differ based on region and/or culture
[22:21:18] <nine> aria: I count that as retardation/US accent.
[22:21:28] <nine> Depends on my mood.
[22:21:39] <nine> Fuck shorthand in general, regardless of language.
[22:22:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> >"Fuck shorthand"
[22:22:08] <nine> "ff w8n bn n 2mn"
[22:22:12] <ProfPangloss|Work> >Uses "regardless" instead of "without regard to"
[22:22:16] <ProfPangloss|Work> :3
[22:22:17] <nine> Dutch shorthand, I think.
[22:22:32] <nine> That's not shorthand.
[22:22:40] <nine> That's Victorian shorthand.
[22:23:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> Obviously we should all refer back to the Queen's tongue
[22:23:05] <ProfPangloss|Work> If you wanna go all-out
[22:23:57] <nine> Colour, armour and lorry!
[22:24:33] <ruffas> and bollocks
[22:24:40] <ruffas> it's a good word
[22:24:44] <okeefe> And dodgy.
[22:24:51] <nine> Bollocks! Gonads!
[22:25:30] <ruffas> and dodgy
[22:25:33] <ruffas> and nick
[22:25:35] <ProfPangloss|Work> tl;dr ASL is awesome and interpreters are fucking cool
[22:25:45] <nine> ----------^ lies
[22:25:50] <ruffas> has someone make PirateSL?
[22:26:04] <nine> It requires you to hold a bottle of rum.
[22:26:09] <nine> And punch people in the face.
[22:26:51] <aria> ...
[22:26:56] <aria> I like you still
[22:26:58] <ruffas> you still need to be able to sign Yaaaarrrrr
[22:27:05] <ruffas> and booty
[22:27:08] <ruffas> and such
[22:27:14] <nine> Punch 'em in the face hard.
[22:27:23] <nine> Punch 'em in the face harder.
[22:27:28] <aria> Booty is easy, you just do a half circle and make the "That ass" face
[22:27:32] <aria> Yarrrr is worse
[22:27:38] <nine> No aria.
[22:27:40] <nine> You're not a pirate.
[22:27:45] <nine> You fail at this.
[22:27:51] <nine> Rum + punch in the face.
[22:27:52] <aria> =(
[22:28:10] <nine> If you can't communicate with another pirate that way, one of you is shit.
[22:28:12] <nine> And should be strung up
[22:28:27] <ruffas> wench would totally be miming grabass
[22:28:39] <nine> While holding rum.
[22:28:49] <nine> Followed by punching 'em in the face.
[22:28:57] <ruffas> obviously
[22:29:41] <nine> Also, I don't think there's need for more stuff in a pirate sign language.
[22:29:54] <nine> All pirates may be hard of hearing, but they make up for that by shouting everything anyway.
[22:31:13] <ruffas> YAARRRRR
[22:33:12] <ProfPangloss|Work> Ahahahaha
[22:33:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> The sign for pirate is literally covering your right eye
[22:33:27] <ProfPangloss|Work> With your right hand
[22:33:37] <ruffas> that's perfect
[22:33:46] <ruffas> how does one look up signs?
[22:33:47] <nine> Also, pirates work in groups.
[22:33:51] <ruffas> is there a sign dictionary?
[22:33:55] <ProfPangloss|Work> Plenty of online dictionaries
[22:34:05] <ProfPangloss|Work> RIT has an internal dictionary you can access if you're a student
[22:34:08] <nine> So the ones that aren't completely deaf will hear the orders, they all yell YARRRR, and those that are mostly deaf just look at their mates and follow along.
[22:34:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> But there are other (less comprehensive) free ones
[22:34:18] <nine> Having gone deaf after spending many years doing shit on a ship.
[22:34:23] <ProfPangloss|Work> ruffas: http://www.aslpro.com
[22:35:25] <ruffas> that's pretty cool
[22:35:58] <ruffas> pinkeye's really complicated
[22:35:58] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh shitttttt
[22:36:03] <ProfPangloss|Work> The sign for "paratrooper" is fucking awesome
[22:36:04] <nine> ~?
[22:36:11] <nine> Is it wanking?
[22:36:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> It's a hand gesture representing a dude parachuting in, followed by the sign for "person"
[22:36:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> (occupations are often signed by the verb describing the job, followed by "person")
[22:36:54] <ruffas> makes sense
[22:36:55] <ProfPangloss|Work> (so "astronaut" literally translates to "rocket man.")
[22:38:20] <ruffas> sweet
[22:39:17] <nine> Little Rocket Man achievement now makes a weird form of sense.
[22:41:09] <ProfPangloss|Work> Brb looking up the sign for "achievement"
[22:41:34] <ProfPangloss|Work> Ahh
[22:41:44] <ProfPangloss|Work> It's quite similar to "accomplish"
[22:42:52] <ruffas> make sense
[22:45:16] <nine> It's probably not the digital achievements we have today, which aren't actually achievements in a lot of games.
[22:45:28] <nine> "PLAYED THE TUTORIAL!!!1! 50 GAMER POINTS!"
[22:50:37] -!- Neito has quit [Ping timeout]
[22:51:19] <nine> Everything is dead now.
[22:51:22] <nine> Let us feast.
[22:53:02] <ProfPangloss|Work> nine: I don't believe "achievements" in the context of gaming have their own sign, possibly other than colloquialisms used within small groups of friends
[22:53:22] <ProfPangloss|Work> But 80% of sign is context anyway, so I'm sure a gamer would get it and a non-gamer wouldn't

[23:00:56] <AGPino> hey geeknights
[23:01:10] <nine> Pretty much ProfPangloss|Work.
[23:01:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> 'Sup AGPino
[23:01:32] <ruffas> howdy
[23:01:55] <nine> Who is this dude?
[23:02:15] <AGPino> Hey ProfPangloss|Work finally not much doing some homework and playing FTL during breaks
[23:02:37] <ProfPangloss|Work> Good man
[23:03:50] <AGPino> ProfPangloss|Work: you?
[23:04:09] <ProfPangloss|Work> Workkkkk
[23:04:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> No more classes in session, 'cause everyone's taking midterms
[23:04:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> But I'm still expected to stay here until 8, for the "6-8" class block
[23:04:51] <ProfPangloss|Work> And I'm paid hourly, so you can be damn sure I'll be here.
[23:05:51] <ruffas> working so hard
[23:06:34] <AGPino> money is good :)
[23:10:08] <nine> >working
[23:10:09] <nine> >US
[23:10:26] <nine> I raise my eyebrow in suspicion.
[23:11:13] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh right I forgot
[23:11:17] <ProfPangloss|Work> I'm working in corporate IT
[23:11:30] <ProfPangloss|Work> Therefore I don't actually have a job, and what I'm technically doing right now is trespassing
[23:11:38] <AGPino> hahaha
[23:11:48] <AGPino> how's the management there ProfPangloss|Work?
[23:11:54] <ProfPangloss|Work> Because one guy with a GED and his experience in podunk nowhere applies to everyone else looking for real degrees
[23:12:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> AGPino: For what I'm doing, pretty alright. Some communication breakdowns, but nothing too major
[23:12:39] <ProfPangloss|Work> And even though I'm a student working here as a co-op, it's still a generally friendly atmosphere
[23:12:50] <ProfPangloss|Work> (also not technically corporate IT, it's IT in academia)
[23:12:57] <ProfPangloss|Work> (but still what the fuck muppet stop talking)
[23:13:11] <AGPino> haha
[23:14:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> Also just out of curiosity AGPino, who're you on the forums?
[23:14:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> Unless there actually is an "AGPino"
[23:15:34] <AGPino> I'm usually not the forum kind of a person but I were thinking about joining it but I'm trying out the community here :)

[23:20:04] <AGPino> uh oh AGpino is not part of the forums kill him! haha just kidding
[23:20:49] <nine> Okay!
[23:20:57] <nine> Let me get my tools.
[23:21:17] <AGPino> is everyone in here already part of the forums?
[23:21:58] <nine> Of course.
[23:22:10] <pence> do the bots count?
[23:22:13] <nine> (not actually, more bots here fagging up the place)
[23:22:39] <ProfPangloss|Work> nine: Wasn't aware the bots were smoking
[23:22:47] <ProfPangloss|Work> Or alternately putting together piles of sticks
[23:22:48] <nine> Neither am I.
[23:22:56] <nine> Neither am I.
[23:23:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> Shit
[23:23:04] <ProfPangloss|Work> I need to stop saying "alternately"
[23:23:07] <ProfPangloss|Work> It's "alternatively"
[23:23:20] <nine> You fool!
[23:23:45] <AGPino> nine: haha
[23:23:56] <nine> Now start working and stop wasting your employer's time that he's buying from you!
[23:24:05] <nine> AGPino: what's so funny?
[23:24:20] <AGPino> nine: double typing makes me giggle
[23:24:23] <Apsup> I currently hate the forums. All the pax threads are getting huge amount of replies, except the one that I would like to see getting replies.
[23:24:45] <ProfPangloss|Work> Apsup: Which, East?
[23:24:58] <AGPino> Those tickets sold out fast
[23:25:13] <nine> PAX REAL.
[23:25:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> Not as fast as last time, we were all anticipating they'd be gone by 3PM yesterday
[23:25:22] <nine> >inb4 they think Real Madrid
[23:25:34] <ProfPangloss|Work> Thanks to trogdor42 I got mine within minutes
[23:25:37] <nine> Still waiting for a true PAX, in fucking Rome.
[23:26:02] <Apsup> ProfPangloss|Work: The one with discussion based on the R&S's panel.
[23:26:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh
[23:26:22] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yeahhh haven't been following that one since I haven't had time to watch the panel
[23:26:22] <ProfPangloss|Work> =3
[23:28:50] <AGPino> *sad* back to work damn you on line class!

[23:56:32] <nine> That's how things usually go against Ceaseless if you've got a whopping 8 vitality and no clothes.

[23:59:15] <nine> You haven't lived until you've fought Ceaseless Discharge as Tarkus without cheesing him.
[23:59:27] <nine> I'm midroll speed though.
[23:59:34] <aria> What counts as cheese?
[23:59:41] <aria> Does the valley count as cheesing?
[23:59:43] <nine> You don't know how to cheese Ceaseless?
