[00:12:46] <nine> Hi Neito.
[00:13:01] <Neito> Hey, Nine.
[00:13:24] <nine> Don't you think 1,1Aria needs to fix his name?
[00:15:59] -!- VentureJ has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[00:27:29] -!- ProfPangloss [ProfPangloss!ProfPanglo@hide-23FEC4C9.dr02.roch.ny.frontiernet.net] has joined #geeknights
[00:27:43] <nine> Prof!
[00:27:55] <nine> Tell Joe to get his arse in his chair.
[00:28:03] <nine> Or his brain onto the internet.
[00:39:01] <Aria> Ruffas, this dude's beard is made out of bones
[00:39:06] <Aria> also he has really low quality voice
[00:39:22] <nine> Wut?
[00:39:40] <nine> What're you on?
[00:40:16] <Aria> Vamos
[00:41:24] <nine> After 10 minutes of silence you randomly mutter something.
[00:41:24] <Robobuntu> you can't after 10 minutes!
[00:41:27] <nine> No context.
[00:45:46] <Aria> I never knew this
[00:45:57] <nine> ...
[00:46:13] <Aria> But Pinwheel can totally kill you!
[00:46:18] <Aria> Ive never been hit by him before
[00:46:25] <Aria> I figured I could kill him before he attacked
[00:46:28] <Aria> so I stood in front fo him
[00:46:30] <Aria> and punched
[00:46:32] <Bronz> Hai
[00:46:35] <Aria> and then he one shotted me..
[00:46:48] <nine> >a boss
[00:46:52] <nine> >not being able to hit you
[00:46:54] <nine> ARE YOU HIGH?
[00:46:59] <Aria> Its Pinwheel
[00:47:04] <Aria> how the fuck do you get hit by pinwheel?!
[00:47:08] <nine> YOU'RE USING THE DARKMOON BOW.
[00:47:14] <nine> You tell me.
[00:47:14] <Bronz> ^
[00:47:15] <Aria> How do you not kill pinwheel before he has time to attack anyone?
[00:47:37] <nine> He insta-tp's, so his servant can then attack.
[00:47:52] <nine> The music is also interesting, but nobody ever hears it in-game.
[00:48:00] <Aria> yup
[00:49:58] <okeefe> "Come to the frc irc channel for screaming Dark Souls advice."
[00:51:52] <nine> What idiot told you that?
[00:52:33] <okeefe> I'm assuming that's what the allcaps is about.
[00:53:55] <Aria> I just lost 9 humanity just now..
[00:53:59] <Aria> It sucked
[00:54:54] <Aria> I had to run away from all the pinwheels and a black knight
[00:55:01] <Aria> In a tiny room with super tiny enterence
[00:55:09] <Aria> through power of extreme luck, I made it out
[00:55:11] <Aria> with no health
[00:55:11] <Bronz> *entrance
[00:55:21] <Aria> and made a run for it to get to the pinwheel room
[00:55:29] <Aria> Zig zaged like a crazy person
[00:55:32] <Aria> dodged so many wheels
[00:55:46] <Aria> and then I failed because controlled input
[00:56:07] <Aria> (I also took a fire to the face, so only had like 2 HP left
[00:58:22] <nine> The all caps was about 1,1Aria being a fool.
[00:58:31] <nine> And losing 9 manatees.
[00:58:33] <nine> Pffffffffffffffft.
[00:58:35] <nine> I got double that.
[00:58:43] <Aria> You have double that
[00:58:46] <Aria> you didn't lose double that
[00:58:50] <Aria> losing 18 humanities sucks
[00:59:11] <nine> Meh.
[00:59:23] <nine> Losing 99 sucks.
[00:59:27] <nine> 18 isn't that big a deal.
[00:59:31] <nine> You can pop that.
[00:59:49] <Aria> How do you get so many humanity?
[00:59:54] <Aria> Have they made them crazy common on PC?
[00:59:57] <Aria> Oh you just cheat?
[01:00:01] <nine> No.
[01:00:04] <nine> I just co-op.
[01:00:28] <Bronz> but... how do you "pop" them?
[01:00:38] <nine> And playing the game once gets you enough twin humanities and regular humanities that if you pop them you surely end up with like 20 if not more.
[01:00:52] <nine> NOMNOMNOM HARD MANATEES.
[01:01:01] <Aria> 20 per run
[01:01:07] <Aria> and you say losing 18 is no big deal?
[01:01:19] <nine> Per full game.
[01:01:31] <nine> That's before getting soft humanity from just killing enemies.
[01:01:52] <nine> And also not counting any random drops of humanity you can get.
[01:01:59] <nine> Which is also trivial to farm.
[01:02:09] <nine> Summoned again.

[01:05:18] <VentureJ> Hey there, guys
[01:05:22] <VentureJ> Debate
[01:05:24] <VentureJ> Fu times.
[01:05:26] <VentureJ> *Fun times
[01:06:46] <nine> Debate~?
[01:06:50] <nine> 'bout what?
[01:07:16] <Aria> Nine, you're at the gargyoles
[01:07:34] <Aria> I dont wanna wait around the gargoyles for an hour to get 18 humanity
[01:07:35] <Aria> that is boring
[01:07:42] <VentureJ> Presidential Debate. Uh-doiii
[01:07:44] <Aria> cept if you wanna do that at a harder boss, it takes like 4 hours
[01:08:10] <nine> I only killed gargoyles 4 times.
[01:08:21] <nine> The other 4 times had the summoner die, with 1 exception.
[01:08:24] <nine> Where I died to red drake.
[01:08:31] <nine> I now have 19 manatees.
[01:08:49] <nine> And used one to go human before I killed the goyles myself (with Lautrec and Solaire for more HP)
[01:09:10] <nine> And I got my 80 humanities fighting Quelaag.
[01:09:20] <nine> And whatever I gathered from just killing.
[01:09:26] <nine> Which was also a dozen or so.
[01:09:44] <nine> So yeah, Quelaag is fun to fight, and active as fuck 'round lvl 35.
[01:10:44] <yoshokatana> hi nine
[01:10:50] <yoshokatana> the debate is kind of boring
[01:11:12] <yoshokatana> romney just blamed obama for bankrupting the auto industry
[01:11:22] <nine> OH!
[01:11:24] <nine> Link please.
[01:11:31] <yoshokatana> youtube.com ?
[01:11:37] <yoshokatana> they're livestreaming it
[01:11:46] <yoshokatana> and at least obama is calling him out on stuff
[01:11:46] <okeefe> The debate is just going to annoy me. I just turned it off.
[01:12:08] <nine> They don't give me a link to the debate on Youtube.
[01:12:09] <okeefe> Twitter is lighting up with debate banter.
[01:12:12] <nine> When I go to Youtube.
[01:12:33] <Bronz> What are they disagreeing about?
[01:12:39] <okeefe> Try this: http://www.youtube.com

[01:17:52] <nine> GASP!
[01:17:56] <nine> FOUR DOLLARS A GALLON?
[01:17:59] <nine> SAY IT AIN'T SO!
[01:18:04] <yoshokatana> romney: "dirty industry jobs are still jobs"
[01:18:32] <yoshokatana> well, yeah? but also, we'd rather have clean industry jobs?
[01:18:33] <nine> Eighty fucking cents per LITRE.

[01:18:59] <Coldguy> hi
[01:19:04] <yoshokatana> OH SNAP
[01:19:04] <nine> ""
[01:19:08] <nine> 4 (U.S. dollars per US gallon) = 0.807186777 Euros per litre
[01:19:12] <yoshokatana> barack attack time
[01:19:28] <nine> Don't vote for the cunt who blabbers about 4 dollars/gallon being a lot.
[01:19:52] <yoshokatana> how much is gas where you are, nine?
[01:20:15] <nine> Over a euro/litre.
[01:20:22] <nine> Or around that.
[01:21:08] <yoshokatana> yeah, makes sense
[01:21:12] <nine> http://www.energy.eu
[01:21:24] <yoshokatana> oh man, romney is a dick
[01:21:56] <yoshokatana> oh hey lemme interrupt you BUT NOW IT'S MY TIME TO SPEAK, SO SHUT UP
[01:22:38] <nine> Bitch too be now bitchin' 'bout pitiful 4 dollars per gallon..
[01:23:01] <yoshokatana> I don't want to give my money to those dirty canadians
[01:23:10] <Coldguy> the hook in this song is too catchy http://www.youtube.com
[01:23:22] <nine> Romney wants to give your jobs and money to Canada.
[01:23:26] <nine> So he can sell more oil.
[01:23:31] <nine> And make more monehs.
[01:24:18] <nine> DICK, YOU TURN'S OVER.
[01:24:20] <yoshokatana> oh mans, romney doesn't know the rules of the debate
[01:24:32] <yoshokatana> HEY LADY WHO MADE YOU MODERATOR?
[01:24:37] <VentureJ> This is ridiculous
[01:24:38] <VentureJ> WOW
[01:24:50] <nine> Looks like US politics.
[01:24:53] <VentureJ> Yeeeup
[01:25:05] <nine> Reduce taxes on all brackets? WHAT?
[01:25:08] <nine> WHAT?
[01:25:11] <nine> WHAT?
[01:25:21] <nine> WHAT.
[01:25:29] <VentureJ> har har har
[01:25:53] <yoshokatana> no more taxes!
[01:25:57] <yoshokatana> evar!
[01:26:06] <nine> Romney's mind: "Don't mention high-income. Don't mention high-income. Don't mention high-income."
[01:26:16] <yoshokatana> haha
[01:26:25] <nine> "This woman is middle-income, talk about middle-income, not high-income such as myself.
[01:26:43] <nine> >implying Romney pays 60%
[01:26:52] <nine> Weird way of saying "fourteen".
[01:27:28] <yoshokatana> give 'em $25,000, will that make them happier?
[01:27:31] <nine> >middle-income
[01:27:33] <yoshokatana> oh WOW
[01:27:34] <nine> >investments
[01:27:53] <yoshokatana> he's trying to spin reducing capital gains tax
[01:28:11] <yoshokatana> you know what the majority of his income is?
[01:28:14] <yoshokatana> capital gains.
[01:28:19] <nine> Eeeeyup.
[01:28:28] <nine> Not like she knows.
[01:30:41] <nine> Wut.
[01:30:52] <nine> "Stuffing my pockets with millions grows the economy!!!1!"
[01:30:57] <VentureJ> haha
[01:31:32] <VentureJ> It's funny that Obama pulled out the "I would sign this Bill to help you middle class RIGHT NOW... but Mitt Romney's allies in office are preventing us from doing so."
[01:31:59] <nine> Is it?
[01:32:04] <nine> Sounds like US politics.
[01:32:34] <VentureJ> Yeap
[01:32:37] <nine> ... Romney thinks small business are run financially by all its employees?
[01:32:54] <yoshokatana> that's communist talk, there
[01:32:59] <nine> Now it's energy independence in 5 years? He said 8 earlier!
[01:33:04] <nine> To get his second term probably.
[01:34:34] <VentureJ> There's the mention of Big Bird
[01:35:00] <nine> I'm 10 seconds behind.
[01:35:02] <Robobuntu> you can't i'm 10 seconds!
[01:35:31] <yoshokatana> I'm about 10 seconds behind as well
[01:35:32] <Robobuntu> you can't about 10 seconds!
[01:35:42] <yoshokatana> YES I CAN YOU GODDAMN ROBUT
[01:35:54] <nine> Broke bot.
[01:36:33] <nine> "Of course they add up" NOT THE QUESTION YOU DUMB FUCK.
[01:36:53] -!- Neito has quit [Ping timeout]
[01:36:55] <yoshokatana> "How DARE you question my math?"
[01:36:58] <yoshokatana> wait
[01:37:00] <nine> "Of course they add up!"
[01:37:04] <yoshokatana> 4 trillion or 5 trillion?
[01:37:24] <yoshokatana> I know a trillion dollars is nothing to romney, but that's a pretty wide margin
[01:37:59] <yoshokatana> wait
[01:38:15] <yoshokatana> he didn't mention ANY specifics!
[01:38:34] <nine> Oooh, gender equality question.
[01:38:45] <yoshokatana> hah
[01:38:55] <nine> Could you not appeal to people's emotions and answer Obama? plzkthx.
[01:39:25] <yoshokatana> greatest generation: they don't complain
[01:39:37] <nine> Eeeeeyup.
[01:40:13] <nine> Seriously, wtf.
[01:40:22] <yoshokatana> yeah
[01:40:35] <yoshokatana> I'm extremely envious of free education systems
[01:40:47] <nine> Not free.
[01:40:51] <yoshokatana> you know how much each credit would cost at a shitty community college in NY?
[01:40:52] <nine> Just affordable for everyone.
[01:40:53] <Aria> Catacombs are a million times less bad when you can just arrow the wheel guys
[01:41:09] <yoshokatana> CUNY (city university of new york) is $230 per credit
[01:41:11] <nine> Try great lightning spear.
[01:41:21] <nine> Interesting.
[01:41:27] <Coldguy> cmon equal marrage
[01:41:28] <yoshokatana> wait
[01:41:39] <yoshokatana> is romney advocating AFFIRMATIVE ACTION?
[01:42:08] <yoshokatana> he didn't hire qualified men, TURNED THEM DOWN, then went out in search of women
[01:42:17] <nine> Actual Romney thoughts: "If you gonna have more women in the workforce, you pay less in wages!"
[01:42:25] <yoshokatana> hah
[01:43:14] <nine> Smile brighter.
[01:43:17] -!- VentureJ has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[01:43:41] <yoshokatana> he's got some jowl action going on
[01:43:52] <nine> I'm so glad our politicians only smile and laugh when jokes are cracked, and not after every other word they say.
[01:44:32] <nine> Paul Ryan's a freaky dude when I saw him on the previous debate.
[01:44:47] <nine> Freaking used car salesman vibes as he brought his closing statement.
[01:44:54] <yoshokatana> I think he's purposely wearing ill-fitting suits
[01:45:05] <nine> Romney the same, just older and less shady looking.
[01:45:05] <yoshokatana> to try to appeal to the "lower classes"
[01:45:23] <nine> They won't notice.
[01:46:17] <nine> YOU'VE SEEN NOTHING!
[01:46:43] <yoshokatana> oh mans
[01:46:51] <yoshokatana> "how are you different than bush?"
[01:46:55] <yoshokatana> interesting question
[01:46:55] <nine> Time waste, time waste.
[01:46:59] -!- VentureJ [VentureJ!Adium@hide-680AA069.austin.res.rr.com] has joined #geeknights
[01:47:04] <yoshokatana> and romney STILL doesn't understand the rules
[01:47:40] <nine> 'course not.
[01:47:48] <yoshokatana> it was a different time, you understand
[01:48:03] <nine> Can't fool people by not constantly kicking at the points made by the other guy.
[01:48:18] <yoshokatana> what does "crack down on china" mean?
[01:48:22] <nine> Worrisome statement.
[01:48:27] <nine> "other guy", singular.
[01:48:35] <nine> Probably war.
[01:48:46] <nine> Because US can't have China to become too big.
[01:48:58] <yoshokatana> well, if we invaded china, all those manufacturing jobs would be "american"
[01:49:07] <yoshokatana> yeah, also that
[01:49:31] <yoshokatana> Mister Romney's Olde Tyme Mergers and Acquisitions
[01:49:40] <nine> Yup.
[01:50:48] <nine> Oh snap.
[01:50:52] <nine> Direct.
[01:50:53] <yoshokatana> yeah
[01:51:17] <yoshokatana> popcorn.gif
[01:51:19] <nine> "Fuck this, fuck your bullshit Romney!"
[01:52:12] <nine> Is Obama seriously making Romney look worse than Bush Jr?
[01:52:16] <VentureJ> Yeah
[01:52:19] <VentureJ> Nice card.
[01:52:29] <nine> Nice done.
[01:52:54] <yoshokatana> yeah
[01:55:38] <nine> "I think you know better" ooooooooooooooooh.
[01:56:05] <nine> 9 million is how many percent?
[01:56:16] <yoshokatana> I don't even know
[01:56:17] <nine> Subtle bullshit and misinformation.
[01:56:41] <nine> It may even be 0.1%, but Romney would be a lunatic to say that.
[01:56:43] <yoshokatana> he does need to propose some immigration legislature
[01:57:59] <nine> What did he say is the current number of unemployed?
[01:58:01] <nine> 20 million?
[01:58:04] <yoshokatana> 23
[01:58:13] <yoshokatana> you know what reagan did?
[01:58:15] <yoshokatana> HE
[01:58:16] <yoshokatana> RAISED
[01:58:18] <yoshokatana> TAXES.
[01:58:34] <nine> Gaaasp
[01:58:43] <VentureJ> Illegals
[01:58:54] <VentureJ> Oh no he di'nt gurrrl
[01:59:28] <yoshokatana> oh mans
[01:59:29] <nine> So 23,000,000 out of 311,591,917 people?
[01:59:40] <nine> Less than 10%.
[01:59:46] <yoshokatana> there's already a "Romney's Binder" account on twitter
[01:59:52] <yoshokatana> it's full of women
[02:00:12] <yoshokatana> wait
[02:00:14] <yoshokatana> no'
[02:00:19] <yoshokatana> THERE ARE TWO ACCOUNTS
[02:00:47] <yoshokatana> romney: we need more rich immigrants. not poor immigrants.
[02:00:55] <nine> Yup.
[02:00:57] <nine> So no nine.
[02:01:02] <nine> No Churba.
[02:01:13] <yoshokatana> wait
[02:01:31] <yoshokatana> is he saying we should get rid of citizenship for children of illegal immigrants?
[02:01:50] <yoshokatana> why does romney hate americans?
[02:01:54] <nine> He might have. I was thinking.
[02:02:12] <nine> So I didn't catch his noises.
[02:03:58] <nine> Pledging allegiance to the US flag means nothing.
[02:04:26] <nine> Mindlessly forcing kids to drone out the lines and gestures doesn't teach them a thing.
[02:05:36] <nine> "No."
[02:05:57] <VentureJ> I know, right?!
[02:06:03] <yoshokatana> did he say "hispanics"?
[02:06:07] <nine> Yup.
[02:06:08] <yoshokatana> what a fucking gringo
[02:06:35] <nine> He also just told the moderator "No" in response to her freaking question about his self-deportation comments.
[02:06:45] <nine> Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally he gets somewhere close.
[02:07:01] <nine> BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA
[02:07:26] <nine> He actually believes those people aren't having a ton of benefits moving to the USA illegally?
[02:07:32] <nine> They do it for a fucking reason.
[02:07:35] <yoshokatana> wait
[02:07:35] <yoshokatana> so
[02:07:47] <nine> >Illegal immigrant moves to USA
[02:07:53] <yoshokatana> romney has so much money that he doesn't care where it is
[02:08:07] <nine> Romney: "Once they see that shit's better elsewhere they'll go there."
[02:08:23] <nine> Except that it's not better for the immigrants elsewhere.
[02:08:59] <nine> In before Romney thinks he's allowed another rebuttal round.
[02:09:36] <nine> OH SNAP!
[02:09:37] <nine> I'm wrong.
[02:09:38] <yoshokatana> he's wondering why he can't just buy the debate
[02:09:47] <nine> Romney doesn't budge in? Crazy.
[02:09:54] <nine> Ahahaha.
[02:09:57] <yoshokatana> then he'd be able to speak as long as he wanted
[02:11:47] <nine> How long is the debate going to be?
[02:11:59] <nine> nvm.
[02:11:59] <yoshokatana> it goes on until the election
[02:12:02] <nine> It's right there.
[02:12:02] <VentureJ> About 20 more minutes or so
[02:12:06] <yoshokatana> only a few weeks, no worries
[02:12:36] <nine> Bronz: How long are these shenanigans over here? Two or three weeks?
[02:13:24] <yoshokatana> hmmm
[02:13:35] -!- Bronz has quit [Client exited]
[02:13:35] <yoshokatana> election years are kind of crazy
[02:14:30] <Coldguy> http://www.gamasutra.com
[02:14:30] <nine> Yup.
[02:15:31] <nine> Translation: 1 out of the 4 years for presidential term is spend dicking about arguing to ONE other person over various topics in an attempt to win the popularity contest with fractions of percentages difference.
[02:17:27] <yoshokatana> exactly.
[02:17:37] <nine> Romney proven wrong.
[02:17:39] <nine> gj
[02:17:40] <yoshokatana> except not quote
[02:17:42] <yoshokatana> quite
[02:17:50] <nine> And now he blabbers.
[02:17:54] <yoshokatana> you forgot the "spending billions of dollars" part
[02:19:01] <nine> Fuck the second amendment, it's misrepresented.
[02:20:33] <nine> "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
[02:20:42] <nine> ANYWHERE?
[02:20:44] <nine> HMMMM?
[02:21:41] <yoshokatana> wait
[02:21:53] <yoshokatana> romney thinks it's illegal to have automatic weapons in the us?
[02:22:02] <nine> He just said so.
[02:22:14] <yoshokatana> is he mentally disabled?
[02:22:27] <VentureJ> U.
[02:22:29] <nine> You have to ask after watching this for over an hour?
[02:22:30] <VentureJ> Uh...
[02:22:43] <VentureJ> My dad owns automatic weapons...
[02:23:24] <nine> "OBAMA GAVE DRUGLORDS AUTOMATICS!!!!!!1!!1ยก"
[02:24:50] <nine> Gridlocked?
[02:25:00] <nine> When Obama has to deal with fucking Republicans in Congress?
[02:25:06] <Aria> You use chaos punches against chaos spider?
[02:25:08] <Aria> Does that work?
[02:25:10] <nine> No shit his fucking state's easier.
[02:25:22] <nine> He doesn't have a fucking congress filled with opposition!
[02:25:30] <nine> I haven't.
[02:25:39] <nine> ANd it's firedamage, so pitiful probably.
[02:25:48] <Aria> What do you use then?
[02:25:54] <nine> Only half is physical damage, and Quelaag's immune to fire damage.
[02:26:09] <nine> I haven't fought her yet with master Roshi.
[02:26:25] <nine> I use lightning, normal weapons, magic works too.
[02:26:29] <nine> Lightning spear's great.
[02:26:41] <nine> 10 of them chops off half her health trivially.
[02:26:43] <Aria> So you don't have 80 humanity!
[02:26:45] <Aria> Aw cmon
[02:26:53] <nine> On my knightess.
[02:26:58] <Aria> Ive gotten 99 humanity many many times
[02:26:59] <nine> Different characters.
[02:27:03] <Aria> Mostly because of &S
[02:27:10] <yoshokatana> youcantquoteme 10 times
[02:27:11] <Robobuntu> you can't youcantquoteme 10 times!
[02:27:13] <Aria> but that doesn't count towards my current shitty archer dude
[02:27:21] <nine> How fucking hard is it to stop mixing up the numbers I say?
[02:27:24] <yoshokatana> good robut
[02:27:36] <nine> 19 on Roshi, almost 90 on my Knightess when I just killed Quelaag over and over again.
[02:27:43] <Aria> For this shitty archer guy, 8 is a big deal, cause the most Ive had is like 12
[02:28:02] <nine> Then get more.
[02:28:15] <Aria> I stopped playing
[02:28:20] <nine> If you need the defenses that much.
[02:28:31] <nine> "FOR BIG BUSINESS!"
[02:28:35] <yoshokatana> romney wants to abolish the minimum wage and OSHA to make us a better manufacturing country than china?
[02:28:44] <nine> Genius.
[02:28:58] <Aria> Isn't your minimum wage already lower?
[02:29:06] <nine> Now he can pay even less wages, hire more women to pay less wages to, and make more money!
[02:29:18] <nine> It's not minimum wage.
[02:29:25] <nine> Because there are jobs where you earn less.
[02:29:55] <yoshokatana> minimum wage in the united states is about $7.50 per hour
[02:30:10] <yoshokatana> which is about half the cost of lunch in manhattan
[02:30:12] <Aria> And China?
[02:30:19] <yoshokatana> eh, some lint?
[02:30:27] <nine> Thank god gas is only 4 dollars a gallon, otherwise that'd be atrocious!
[02:30:39] <yoshokatana> maybe a wooden nickel if you're a good worker?
[02:30:56] <nine> "I know this."
[02:31:06] <Aria> So Apsup linked this.. http://youtu.be
[02:31:09] <Aria> I like it
[02:31:12] <nine> "I won't explain this, but I know. So vote for me, because I know, but I won't tell you. Because I know."
[02:31:16] <nine> "I know"
[02:31:51] <nine> "Cirno's Perfect Math Class ENGLISH SUB"
[02:31:52] <nine> LIES.
[02:32:25] <Aria> Eh song is pretty cool
[02:32:42] <Aria> And he has a pretty nice body
[02:33:53] <Aria> Im not sure whats going on at the end...
[02:33:53] <nine> >counterfeit Apple store
[02:34:01] <yoshokatana> CHINESE HACKERS
[02:35:22] <yoshokatana> romney's going crazy
[02:35:26] <nine> "Government does not create jobs" Wut?
[02:35:32] <nine> Isn't that what he's been saying constantly?
[02:35:38] <nine> "I create jobs, I create jobs."
[02:36:20] <yoshokatana> he's just muttering it under his breath
[02:36:34] <nine> He's just muttering, period.
[02:36:37] <nine> OOoooh!
[02:36:41] <nine> Appeal to religious people.
[02:36:43] <yoshokatana> he thinks I'm a child of his god
[02:36:46] <yoshokatana> UM...
[02:36:47] <nine> Can't forget that one.
[02:36:51] <VentureJ> When is he NOT muttering?
[02:36:59] <VentureJ> Who appealed to religious?
[02:37:05] <VentureJ> and how?
[02:37:07] <VentureJ> Did I miss something?
[02:37:08] <yoshokatana> didn't he say that "we all believe in the same god" last debate, too?
[02:37:13] <yoshokatana> he keeps saying that
[02:37:35] <nine> Christianity is a US invention.
[02:37:44] <nine> It used to be Catholic, or Protestant, or whathaveyou.
[02:37:47] <nine> And fuck the others.
[02:38:14] <nine> Then some US presidential candidate called himself "CHRISTIAN!" and suddenly had the votes of catholics and protestants alike.
[02:40:39] <nine> You know, it's good that the US only has 2 voting options.
[02:40:42] <Aria> so Im logged into youtube
[02:40:50] <yoshokatana> the debate ends, and romney starts stalking around the floor
[02:40:50] <Aria> so this election debate thingy isn't being promoted to me
[02:40:51] <nine> Imagine the debates with more than 2 people.
[02:40:52] <yoshokatana> brb
[02:40:53] <Aria> can you link it?
[02:41:01] <nine> http://www.youtube.com
[02:41:03] <nine> Over now though.
[02:41:09] <Aria> Oh.
[02:41:30] <nine> Bwahahaha.
[02:42:18] <nine> Romney's surrounded by well dressed men, Obama by women and older people.
[02:44:34] <VentureJ> Excellent point, nine.
[02:48:19] <Coldguy> http://whatthefuckhasobamadonesofar.com
[02:52:34] <nine> I love that link.
[02:52:39] <nine> "I could do that in my sleep."
[02:52:45] <nine> These buttons become crazier and crazier.
[02:52:57] <nine> "Health Care Reform Bill, allowing children to remain covered by their parents' insurance until the age of 26"
[02:53:04] <nine> That's pretty fucking cool.
[02:53:17] <nine> I had to get my own shit sorted out when I became a legal adult.
[02:54:18] <VentureJ> Yeah, no kidding
[02:54:51] -!- Neito [Neito!neito@CC88F599.6DD38336.5E4272EE.IP] has joined #geeknights
[02:56:16] <nine> "Appointed nation's first Chief Technology Officer" \o/
[03:01:42] <Aria> Why isn't Muppet here?
[03:03:08] <Apsup> You want him here?
[03:03:40] <Aria> Sure!
[03:03:51] <Aria> I mean, we have Nine and Scott
[03:04:32] <Coldguy> y?
[03:04:35] <Apsup> Nine is easy to controll. Scott is... Scott, but people seem to get argumentative with Muppet on a different decree.
[03:04:46] <Aria> =P
[03:05:00] <Aria> Well, Muppet spends as much time on FRCF as any of us
[03:05:41] <Aria> So I found it peculiar that he doesn't also visit the IRC
[03:05:42] <Apsup> Well he is free to come here if he so wants, nothing to stop him.
[03:05:59] <Apsup> There are lot's of forum actives that don't irc. For some reason.
[03:09:06] <nine> I'm barely active on the forums, yet I dick about in here.
[03:09:12] <nine> Coin flips both ways.
[03:10:16] <Aria> Wait is this number correct?
[03:10:26] <Aria> 5% of americans stand for 60% of tax income?
[03:10:48] <nine> No.
[03:10:56] <Aria> So...
[03:10:58] <Aria> He lied?
[03:11:01] <Aria> Can he lie?
[03:11:11] <nine> More likely that's supposed to be 5% of americans are in the 60% tax _bracket_
[03:11:19] <nine> Did you stop him?
[03:11:21] <nine> Did anyone stop him?
[03:11:25] <Aria> No
[03:11:36] <nine> Did anyone point it out?
[03:11:41] <Aria> Not yet
[03:11:46] <Aria> But the other dude just now got to talk
[03:11:59] <nine> Obama you mean.
[03:12:06] <Aria> Yes
[03:12:18] <nine> Time to watch porn.
[03:12:27] <Aria> Cause Obama?
[03:12:38] <nine> No.
[03:12:44] <nine> 'cause I just finished downloading it.
[03:13:01] <Aria> Why do you download porn?
[03:13:03] <Aria> There are streaming sites
[03:13:34] <nine> Because Crunchyroll is shit imho.
[03:13:52] <Aria> I see...
[03:22:49] <Aria> Why only the part 2 of the debate on youtube?
[03:22:55] -!- Bronzdragon has quit [Connection reset by peer]
[03:23:33] <nine> Is it?
[03:23:34] <nine> Iunno.
[03:23:44] <nine> First debate was a while ago.
[03:23:53] <nine> Anyways, I'm off.
[03:24:00] <nine> Fapping and shaving, no particular order.
[03:24:37] <okeefe> Here's where the bot needs to jump in with SIMULTANEOUSLY.
[03:24:52] <pence> oh man
[03:25:27] <Coldguy> XD
[03:25:29] <Coldguy> http://www.youtube.com
[03:27:22] <Coldguy> anyone to a 12 board gaming in west chester on saturday?
[03:28:00] <okeefe> In English, please.
[03:28:11] <pence> I might actually be around Saturday, we're doing BW on Friday this week
[03:30:01] <Coldguy> 12 hour board gaming event in west cester
[03:30:11] <Coldguy> and cool pence
[03:30:28] <pence> is that at games keep again?
[03:31:28] <pence> Extra Life 12 hour Charity Gaming Event noon - midnight
[03:31:48] <Coldguy> yup
[03:31:48] <pence> I'll be damned
[03:31:53] <Coldguy> you are correct
[03:32:12] <Coldguy> $5 for games and pizza
[03:32:17] <Coldguy> and raffles
[03:34:27] <pence> this macklemore track is pretty great
[03:34:41] <Coldguy> been in my head all day
[03:37:03] <pence> there is going to be much gaming in this upcoming two week period
[03:37:28] <Coldguy> need to join more of your crews
[03:37:37] <Coldguy> I got my crowd but neeed to diversifity
[03:38:53] <pence> yeah, same... my crew right now is mostly online people w/ skype or the guys who are still stuck in community college after I started working
[03:41:13] <pence> most of my friends from WCU scattered
[03:45:36] -!- nine [nine!nine@hide-887AEA2B.ip.telfort.nl] has parted #geeknights
[03:47:26] <Coldguy> my normal places to game are games keep., 7th diamention, and the epgs
[03:49:25] <pence> I definitely want to find a couple people that are more into board games. I started listening to the podcast this year and it's the reason I went out and bought carcasonne, settlers, and puerto rico
[03:50:09] <pence> before that I only had a couple fantasy flight games that we'd mostly just take out if people weren't around to RPG
[03:50:31] <Aria> You bought caracsoone because of geeknights?
[03:50:40] <pence> yeah
[03:50:41] <Aria> apreche: Why you tell people to buy carcasonne?
[03:50:51] <okeefe> It's a good gateway game.
[03:51:01] <Coldguy> I got Bang from auction
[03:51:12] <Coldguy> Bullet gold rush and unprinted expansion
[03:51:19] <Aria> Gateway? Who needs a gateway to super simple boardgames?
[03:51:26] <Aria> I mean, if it was, say, video games I could get it
[03:51:26] <okeefe> Normal people.
[03:51:35] <Aria> but everyone played boardgames when they were children
[03:51:37] <Aria> everyone
[03:52:21] <pence> all I had when I was a kid was like... monopoly and life and such
[03:52:27] <Aria> A good gateway game is something that's complex as far as strategy goes, but has few rules so you can easily pick it up, but get your ass beat
[03:52:48] <Aria> Monopoly teaches you how to look at a board and do as the rules say
[03:52:53] <Aria> no more gateway required
[03:53:07] <pence> and people still fuck it up!
[03:53:24] <Aria> What do people fuck up with?
[03:53:34] <okeefe> And you don't consider Carcassonne a good game by that metric?
[03:53:45] <pence> in my experience, thinking they have to buy every property they land on
[03:53:46] <Aria> Which metric?
[03:53:52] <Aria> As a gateway, no
[03:53:52] <pence> also putting money on free parking
[03:53:55] <Aria> as a game, sure it can be fun
[03:54:30] <Aria> Oh-- right, my own description of ideal gateway?
[03:54:33] <Aria> Um.. I guess...
[03:54:40] <Aria> But that's too simple =P
[03:54:52] <Aria> There needs to be more going on
[03:55:07] <ruffas> so much Civ
[03:55:25] <Aria> Also, didn't you have chess, Pence?
[03:55:38] <pence> I did have chess/checkers, yeah
[03:56:17] <pence> I'd usually end up playing against a computer in chess but I never really grokked any strategy or tried to get good
[03:57:38] <Aria> My argument was just that a gateway to boardgames is unnecessary
[03:57:40] <pence> also Hero Quest, which is part of the reason I got into RPGs in the first place
[03:58:18] <pence> but man, I went back to Hero Quest recently and all the magic is gone
[03:58:38] <Aria> And that if anything, something like Carcasonne might enforce the thought of "I used to play board games, but we grown ups do manly shit like shave and drink beer! Board games are stupid!"
[03:59:14] <Aria> ...Also I don't like Carcasonne cause I always lose badly..
[03:59:43] <okeefe> HQ was also a bit too weird, puzzlewise.
[03:59:50] <okeefe> SQ3 is where it's at.
[04:00:30] <Neito> Wow. This world is oddly small at times.
[04:00:35] <pence> are you thinking of king's quest?
[04:00:45] <Aria> What does SQ stand for?
[04:00:51] <okeefe> Space Quest.
[04:01:05] <okeefe> KQ had the same problems.
[04:02:32] <Aria> !! Mit Romney looks like the dude from Eagle!
[04:02:37] <pence> getting into RPGs for me basically boiled down to having two cousins that had a copy of hero quest, and a copy of keep on the borderlands that I pored over going 'what the fuck is this game?'
[04:03:26] <Aria> As RPG lovers who have not played a souls game. I recommend you try Dark Souls
[04:03:46] <Aria> As you might have guessed, Im enjoying it quite a lot
[04:03:53] <Aria> Over a year since it came out, been playing it on and off since
[04:04:53] <pence> I still haven't played, but I have watched a friend beat it at least twice
[04:05:02] <pence> also I played a lot of Demon's Souls when that came out
[04:05:03] <Aria> Wait, how does that work?
[04:05:13] <Aria> Did you watch the entire thing?
[04:05:18] <Aria> Were those speed runs?
[04:05:24] <Aria> Regular runs take at least 50 hours
[04:05:39] <Aria> (with speed runs usually also taking a couple of hours, unless you're really really good, and glitch a bit)
[04:05:46] <pence> I have been present in the room for parts of it, at least
[04:06:00] <pence> several hours worth
[04:06:06] <Aria> I see, you saw the last boss twice?
[04:06:14] <pence> yeah
[04:06:32] <Aria> Say, did your friend fight him legit? Did he even try to? =P
[04:06:35] <Aria> Or did he just parry?
[04:06:39] <pence> watching him hump the pillar in anor londo with those stupid archers
[04:06:52] <pence> that was frustrating to watch
[04:06:55] <Aria> Oh yeah... those
[04:07:00] <Aria> Yes, its frustrating to play too
[04:07:09] <Aria> Even though its a single enemy...
[04:08:25] <pence> i'm pretty sure he ended up fighting him legit
[04:08:33] <Aria> =O
[04:08:37] <Aria> I respect your firend
[04:08:42] <pence> but I could be totally wrong
[04:08:44] <Aria> I always wanna fight him legit
[04:08:50] <Aria> then I mess up and he gets close
[04:08:51] <Aria> so I parry
[04:08:55] <Aria> and then I just kinda stand there...
[04:08:59] <Aria> and parry him until he's dead..
[04:10:14] <pence> meanwhile I've only played up to taurus demon, 'cause I'm lame
[04:10:32] <Aria> So then, you have played it =P
[04:10:44] <pence> yeah
[04:10:52] <Aria> Also, up to Tarus demon doesn't mean you haven't done awesome shit
[04:11:07] <Aria> If you walk down the stairs instead of up, there's a freaking hydra!
[04:11:12] <Aria> and ice golems
[04:11:23] <Aria> and giant cat bears
[04:12:27] <pence> it definitely feels like a more epic demon's souls
[04:12:39] <Aria> Its because the world is so well designed
[04:12:49] <Aria> I mean geographically
[04:12:57] <pence> which also felt a lot like king's field
[04:13:07] <Aria> Not just aesthetics
[04:13:19] <pence> king's field is probably not worth going back to, but it is awesome for one thing at least
[04:13:32] <Aria> Yknow, how you unlock shortcuts to somehwere you know, and then suddenly everything makes perfect sense as to where stuff is relative to each other
[04:13:41] <pence> if you just walk forward after the game starts, the ground opens up, you fall in lava and die
[04:13:48] <Aria> ... =P
[04:14:08] <Aria> Have you played Out of this world for the SNES?
[04:14:17] <pence> yeah
[04:14:24] <pence> those damn leech slug thingies
[04:14:39] <Aria> Oh speaking of the ground opening up
[04:14:52] <Aria> Did your friend try going back to the tutorial area?
[04:15:26] <pence> proooobably, he spent a lot of time on the wiki, so if there's anything hidden there he probably found it
[04:15:38] <Aria> I mean while you were watching
[04:16:48] <Aria> Im trying to find a youtube of the thing Im referecing, but its proving to be hard..
[04:16:49] <pence> I don't remember if anything cool happened, I do sorta remember either going back there myself or watching him go back. Does that giant crow need to fly you back there, or is there some other way?
[04:17:02] <Aria> Its the crow
[04:17:06] <pence> oh, another good king's field moment
[04:17:25] <pence> it's a really slow, deliberate, first person souls game, basically
[04:17:57] <pence> fighting is mostly dodging in, watching a really slow swinging animation, and dodging out, and combat can be really dangerous
[04:18:31] <pence> so a single skeleton guarding a chest is pretty dangerous, and I spent a lot of time trying to beat this skeleton, maybe 20-30 minutes at the beginning of the game while I was getting the hang of it
[04:18:56] <pence> but when I finally killed it, I felt so accomplished. Opened the chest and there's a bigger, tougher skeleton inside.
[04:19:05] <pence> fuck you, king's field!
[04:19:29] <pence> (it did make me laugh, though)
[04:19:58] <Aria> xD
[04:20:02] <Aria> That is the best chest
[04:21:20] -!- ProfPangloss has quit [Ping timeout]
[04:28:00] -!- Neito has quit [Ping timeout]
[04:37:45] <Aria> I guess Im out of luck. That video is impossible to find..
[04:38:37] <ruffas> what ideo?

[05:11:52] <Aria> Im hungry. How do I make a sammich that is tasty in less than a minute?
[05:19:21] <Aria> Well that didn't work
[05:25:38] <ruffas> i'm grading papers
[05:25:45] <ruffas> because final exams were today
[05:25:45] <Aria> Are papers good?
[05:25:52] <ruffas> hate grading
[05:26:04] <Aria> Your grading how much hate was put into it?
[05:26:10] <Aria> Thats not something you should be promoting!
[05:26:22] <ruffas> :p
[05:28:25] <ruffas> that's enough for today

[05:29:09] <Aria> You should hate less =(
[05:29:22] <ruffas> don't like grading, it's tedious
[05:29:44] <Aria> Students like getting grades
[05:30:00] <ruffas> good*
[05:30:22] <Aria> Eh, if you have to wait for it, getting a bad grade is much worse
[05:34:04] <ruffas> yeah
[05:34:12] <ruffas> i was so worried about passing my art class
[05:36:20] <Aria> Hey apreche, do you have a RSS for your tweets?
[05:36:27] <Aria> Cause I don't use Twitter or Gwibber
[05:36:31] <Aria> but I wanna read your tweets
[05:37:00] <ruffas> stupid bed bugs
[05:37:04] <ruffas> suck poison
[05:37:13] <Aria> ..
[05:38:44] <ruffas> yeah
[05:38:49] <Aria> What does that mean?
[05:38:58] <ruffas> i mean there are bed bugs
[05:39:06] <ruffas> and they are sucking poison death
[05:39:39] <Aria> So..
[05:39:48] <Aria> there's a bunch of dead bugs in your bed?
[05:39:52] <Aria> That sounds horrifying
[05:40:04] <ruffas> i'm picking them up as i see them
[05:40:19] <ruffas> there weren't many -visible- ones

[05:44:29] <okeefe> Twitter used to have user rss feeds, then they obfuscated the urls. Don't know if they still support them, but I kind of doubt it.
[05:48:00] <Aria> Id use twitter if I had google glasses
[05:48:32] <Aria> (Not saying that will be superior to Gwibber. But it's novelle!)
[05:53:08] <Aria> So why do people who like Romney get offended when you call him an anarchist?
[05:53:26] <Aria> Do people who like Obama get offended when you call him a socialist?
[05:55:07] <okeefe> Not offended, but more annoyed that the person probably doesn't know what socialist means and is parroting fox news.
[06:03:33] <Aria> I wanna be boss-person of Norway, force better computer practices and get some digital channels for people to be heard (We're 5 mill people, it can work) (and speeding up how the parlament "discusses" things by a billion percent via a freaking message board), then leave and let the current, mostly competent people in charge to do the actual important stuff =P
[06:22:45] <GauntletWizard> heh
[06:22:52] <GauntletWizard> the government is never competent
[06:23:07] <Aria> I like ours
[06:23:08] <GauntletWizard> And you'll never realize it so much as if you have to interact with them
[06:23:41] <GauntletWizard> I bought my house two goddamn months ago- And they still show the ownership as the previous people
[06:23:44] <Aria> Ours is pretty popular. Sure its not perfect, but they're doing well
[06:23:54] <Aria> See---
[06:24:11] <Aria> Better computer practices would just fix that =P
[06:24:19] <GauntletWizard> agreed
[06:24:22] <GauntletWizard> they hate computers
[06:24:26] <GauntletWizard> Hate with a passion, it seems
[06:24:34] <Aria> Sadly
[06:24:44] <GauntletWizard> Everyone who can learn has already learned how to use a computer...
[06:24:48] <GauntletWizard> As have most people who can be trained
[06:24:57] <GauntletWizard> the government gets what's left.
[06:25:40] <GauntletWizard> anyway - It's late, I gotta be up at 7am

[15:13:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> Question of the day:
[15:13:24] <ProfPangloss|Work> You have just won the lottery
[15:13:30] <ProfPangloss|Work> How do you quit your job?
[15:14:31] -!- Neo [Neo!~jfarnswor@866B4023.B98F5130.13671C90.IP] has joined #geeknights
[15:16:15] <ShadedSpriter> I always liked Doug/Nostalgia Critics "I Quit" video. But If I am honest if I won the lottery I wouldn't quit my job...I would want to work.
[15:17:23] <ShadedSpriter> http://thatguywiththeglasses.com link if you hadn't seen it.
[15:18:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> Let's say, for the sake of discussion, you're working a shitty job with a terrible boss, co-workers, clients, whatever. Whether you keep working afterwards, up to you, but let's assume it's at a different job than this one - burning bridges isn't a problem.
[15:18:27] <ProfPangloss|Work> I'm not sure what my answer is just yet, but I can say for sure it will involve being carted around on a lounge chair like royalty.
[15:20:22] <ShadedSpriter> Then you have to make it a spectical. If it happened right now - Gangnam Style exit.
[15:21:12] <ProfPangloss|Work> I like the idea of quitting a retail job - so many possibilities with the announcement speakers
[15:24:55] <ShadedSpriter> Any sort of PA system has to be used...Also if you have admin access to the computer systems that has to be used as well.
[15:25:59] <ShadedSpriter> Have to have something which will annoy some people and amuse others...like my current funeral plan of this song: http://baddudes.bandcamp.com
[15:28:58] <creamsteak> rate my muppet troll
[15:29:16] <ProfPangloss|Work> 3/10
[15:29:19] <ProfPangloss|Work> :/
[15:29:44] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's already dismissed your argument
[15:29:50] <ProfPangloss|Work> Well, "argument"
[15:33:23] <creamsteak> yeah he does that lately
[15:33:29] <creamsteak> well always really
[15:33:56] <creamsteak> though in this case I do mean the general message, and he does seem to "not quite get it"
[15:34:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> At least now he's learned not to egg you/anyone else on with more and more outlandish statements, followed by backpedaling

[15:34:09] <creamsteak> heh
[15:34:18] <creamsteak> well one more attempt
[15:34:21] <creamsteak> then off to work
[15:34:34] <ProfPangloss|Work> And besides that, lately this week, I at least agree with him (mostly... ish...) on politics

[18:56:04] <creamsteak> my ears have been popping a lot lately
[18:56:36] <aria> So people of Geeknights
[18:56:46] <Bronzdragon> Oh, this'll be good
[18:57:02] <aria> Does thee feel like making a website dedicated to all the games you should play before you die?
[18:57:16] <aria> It would recommend you a random game and give you description
[18:57:26] <aria> it has a list, you click a game, it gives you media about the game
[18:57:28] -!- trogdor42 [trogdor42!trogdor42@hide-D56A6A1A.wireless.rit.edu] has joined #geeknights
[18:57:39] <aria> You can make an account so it only tells you to play the correct thing
[18:57:49] -!- trogdor42 has quit [Client exited]
[19:00:18] <ProfPangloss|Work> Make it do a recommendation thing based on tags
[19:00:27] <ProfPangloss|Work> Like the Pandora music recommendation algorithm
[19:00:41] <Bronzdragon> That is haaaaaard
[19:00:47] <aria> Well I want it to feel like a checklist rather than a game recommendation thing
[19:00:57] <Bronzdragon> We could make catagories though
[19:00:58] <aria> so that if you use the website long enough, eventually you'll have played 100 games
[19:01:03] <Bronzdragon> like what consoles/genres
[19:01:16] <aria> Obviously it would have those kinds of tags so that the recommendations will be better to begin with
[19:02:22] <ProfPangloss|Work> Idea
[19:02:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> Have a DB of fantastic games
[19:02:35] <Bronzdragon> Aha?
[19:02:39] <Bronzdragon> Next step?
[19:02:42] <Bronzdragon> We got that far...
[19:02:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> At first, the user picks a genre to go with, and the system recommends a very generally liked game from that genre
[19:03:04] <ProfPangloss|Work> Then once they're done, the user goes back and rates the elements of the game
[19:03:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> "I did like the open-world"
[19:03:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> "The story wasn't great"
[19:03:13] <ProfPangloss|Work> Etc.
[19:03:35] <ProfPangloss|Work> The system then recommends a game based on that - similar or different tags, based on how much the user liked/didn't like the previous game.
[19:03:52] <ProfPangloss|Work> Or, the user can pick a different genre altogether - the system saves their preferences for those tags, though
[19:04:05] <aria> Yeah that's good
[19:04:07] <aria> I like that
[19:04:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> So basically, the system populates their own custom list of 30 (or whatever) essential games.
[19:04:13] <aria> although I'd have 2 buttons
[19:04:21] <aria> "Recommend me something like this" "I wanna try something else"
[19:04:29] <aria> also the button for hand picking genre and such
[19:04:34] <ProfPangloss|Work> With, of course, filters for "I have an XBox, no I don't have a PC, yes I can emulate old games" or whatever
[19:04:49] <ProfPangloss|Work> 'Cause you don't wanna recommend a PS3 exclusive game when you only have a PC, or whatever.
[19:04:54] <aria> You'll just have to assume people can emulate older games for this list to work
[19:05:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> Also, very important - include "I've already played this, here are my thoughts" and "I like this game, but I want to try something different" options
[19:05:31] <okeefe> Does BGG not already do something like this?
[19:05:33] <ProfPangloss|Work> That is, you need to be more specific than "I like this, I don't like that"
[19:06:20] <ProfPangloss|Work> The difficult part will be populating the DB with lists.
[19:06:28] <ProfPangloss|Work> Once that's done, the algorithms are relatively simple
[19:06:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> And besides that, I'm sure you can find source code for plenty of similar projects
[19:07:59] <Bronzdragon> Definetly something to consider
[19:08:05] <Bronzdragon> We might do this...
[19:08:12] <aria> Im mostly bringing it up because of Scott constantly saying you aren't a person if you haven't played Zelda 1
[19:08:43] <aria> Id also very much so enjoy being able to download the website into an application that just launches every game on the list for you when you click on them
[19:08:51] <aria> But that would be very hard for non-steam games
[19:08:59] <aria> also very expensive if you're gonna sell it as a bundle
[19:09:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yepp
[19:09:19] <ProfPangloss|Work> Just make it as an open-source game tracking tool
[19:09:24] <aria> It could be excellent for a shady thing that has a bunch of emulator wrappers
[19:09:43] <ProfPangloss|Work> Or hell, scrap the "essential games" thing for now, start with just an "I like these games, what should I play next" recommendation system
[19:09:54] <ProfPangloss|Work> Simple - it has a DB of games and tags
[19:10:15] <ProfPangloss|Work> Users input 3-5 games they like, the DB matches those games with others that have similar tags.
[19:10:18] <ProfPangloss|Work> Matching algorithm.
[19:10:19] <aria> But I really like the idea of working down a list though
[19:10:45] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh sure, but the matching algorithm is at the center of it - start with a simple recommendation system, then build the list on top of that.
[19:11:23] <ProfPangloss|Work> Or you could be lame and just have a static website w. a list of 100 essential games, user checks off which games they play, then it saves a cookie with which ones are checked, so it's retained on their browser.
[19:11:25] <aria> For building the service, sure, you're right. But for desinging the final version I'm trying to achvie, I don't think that's the best way
[19:11:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> Just depends how you wanna tackle the project
[19:12:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> :3
[19:12:05] <ProfPangloss|Work> And then the crowd-sourcing part is building the DB
[19:12:32] <ProfPangloss|Work> Make a Google survey or something where people are randomly shown a game, and apply up to 10 tags from t list
[19:12:33] <Robobuntu> you can't to 10 tags!
[19:13:07] <aria> Would you do tags, rather than rating a bunch of aspects?
[19:13:21] <aria> Not rating quality, but saying how it does a certain thing
[19:13:55] <aria> So say, if you're asking how green my nose is, you select a value ranging from very green to not so green
[19:15:34] <aria> It's 21:15, I have no eaten breakfast.
[19:16:50] <creamsteak> hrm... how do I become percieved as the forum mascot who gets into random hijinx?
[19:17:42] <ProfPangloss|Work> aria: The problem is that rating scales are too subjective
[19:17:53] <ProfPangloss|Work> God forbid you have gamers rating by IGN's standard
[19:17:57] <Bronzdragon> Get involved in random hijinx more.
[19:18:11] <Bronzdragon> What you'd do is name every itteration
[19:18:22] <Bronzdragon> So "openworldness":
[19:18:29] <Bronzdragon> 1. No deviating paths
[19:18:34] <ProfPangloss|Work> If you have enough tags, all you'd need is people to say "I liked this" or "I didn't like that" for each tag, and you'd get a surprisingly good recommendation
[19:18:34] <Bronzdragon> 2. Optial rooms
[19:18:40] <Bronzdragon> 3. branching paths
[19:18:52] <Bronzdragon> 4. Optional order of objectives
[19:18:57] <Bronzdragon> 5. Full on open-world
[19:19:23] <ProfPangloss|Work> I'll chat with trogdor about it - my resident web guy
[19:19:44] <ProfPangloss|Work> He's already putting thought into another project, one that I'll end up recording some fun techno loops for
[19:20:50] <GauntletWizard> http://whatever.scalzi.com
[19:21:12] <GauntletWizard> Some good points, and one really really, really bad one
[19:21:30] <GauntletWizard> Companies providing actually open foura is a free speech issue.
[19:21:50] <Bronzdragon> I will read it
[19:24:20] <Apsup> I hate fall I hate fall, it's cold, dark, rainy and now my noise runs non stop.
[19:25:14] <ProfPangloss|Work> Apsup: If your noise is running, turn your speakers off
[19:25:16] <ProfPangloss|Work> Simple as that
[19:25:45] <okeefe> Or better yet, put on some GeekNights.
[19:26:01] <Bronzdragon> *nose
[19:26:10] <Bronzdragon> ... I should read more
[19:26:19] <Bronzdragon> I constantly have noise running
[19:26:24] <Bronzdragon> My speakers give it off...
[19:26:31] <aria> I am back!
[19:26:50] <aria> I was thinking more along the ways of how Bronz described
[19:27:00] <aria> but your probably works on more things
[19:27:08] <aria> I don't see why you can't have both systems though
[19:27:34] <aria> (I should mention I was thinking that users use your system and that indexers use the Bronz-described system initially)

[19:58:22] <creamsteak> Of course, some researchers are already trying to develop next-generation, super-fast propulsion systems, which include such concepts as nuclear rockets and antimatter fusion drives.
[19:58:26] <creamsteak> Read more: http://www.foxnews.com
[19:58:40] <creamsteak> right... antimatter fusion drives... we have researchers "on that"

[22:49:33] <ShadedSpriter> will have about 1200 or so at the end of the week.
[22:56:26] <Bronzdragon> I need help with sounding not douchy
[22:56:30] <Bronzdragon> About design experience:
[22:56:31] <Bronzdragon> Various graphical design assignments with real-world contractors. Often in the context of a competition, where my work was selected over 270 other submissions.
[22:56:49] <Bronzdragon> Your thoughts?
[22:57:08] <aria> >_> I should mention that the headline reads "Design expereience in academic context"

[23:07:51] <Apsup> Sounds totally legit.
[23:08:12] <Apsup> it even says it's legitimate.
[23:08:15] <Bronzdragon> .... I don't have $98.6M

[23:11:07] <ColdguyatWork> If its normal think that's cool
[23:11:17] <ColdguyatWork> but this is the complex understanding logic shit
[23:11:28] <ColdguyatWork> the stuff that takes in a lot of CPU
[23:11:32] <ShadedSpriter> I am glad I have never had a situation of signing in at two places ever yet. I usually sign out to save more bandwidth for downloads.
[23:12:51] <Bronzdragon> 'sup farragar
[23:13:03] <Bronzdragon> And... You're concerned about the bandwith IRC uses?
[23:13:06] <Bronzdragon> Seriously?
[23:13:23] <ColdguyatWork> Maybe he is on dial up
[23:13:28] <ColdguyatWork> then it would matter
[23:13:30] <Bronzdragon> EVEN THEN!
[23:14:05] <Bronzdragon> IRC is about as low as you can get, bandwith wise
[23:14:31] <Bronzdragon> Well... it matters insofaras staying connected costs money...
[23:17:58] <ColdguyatWork> so
[23:18:14] <ColdguyatWork> Getting mad vibes for MAGfest
[23:18:24] <Bronzdragon> ... eww
[23:18:35] <ColdguyatWork> ...

[23:19:28] <Bronzdragon> PLANE ticket
[23:19:31] <Bronzdragon> I can spare $40
[23:19:46] <aria> Oh yeah, the 40 bucks isn't a problem
[23:19:52] <aria> its the plane thats expensive
[23:20:05] <Bronzdragon> Hotel, I could deal with...
[23:20:25] <ColdguyatWork> I got the MAGsuite
[23:20:29] <ColdguyatWork> we need bodies
[23:20:34] <ColdguyatWork> current count: 4
[23:20:37] <aria> Does it come with plane tickets?
[23:20:44] <ColdguyatWork> sadly no
[23:20:50] <ColdguyatWork> bus ticket maybe
[23:21:06] <aria> I could pay the entire magsuite price vs free plane tickets
[23:21:43] <ColdguyatWork> hmmm
[23:22:13] <Bronzdragon> I'd take a bus, if that bus was also a submarine
[23:22:26] <ColdguyatWork> hovercrafts
[23:22:27] <aria> It could jump
[23:22:28] <ColdguyatWork> need them
[23:22:29] <aria> or take a bridge
[23:22:45] <aria> I should get a hovercraft house
