[00:22:59] <aria> What phone did you have that could do mp3 playback, but not well?
[00:23:24] <aria> My super old phone is on par with any mp3 player from the time
[00:23:51] <ruffas> my old ass LG piece of flippy shit could -technically- play mp3s
[00:23:53] <aria> You press the physical mp3 shortcut, you get to your library, has a new UI, shows you all the songs, supports all kinds of sortings and filters, and then it plays your mp3's perfectly
[00:24:12] <aria> if its longer than a certain amount, it'll remember how far into it you are
[00:24:17] <aria> (useful for podcasts)
[00:24:41] <ruffas> that's honestly the only thing i miss about iPods
[00:25:02] <aria> I think the limit is 10 min
[00:25:02] <Robobuntu> you can't is 10 min!
[00:25:29] <aria> It also did shuffling and flac and cover art and all that other standard ipod stuff
[00:26:01] <aria> And yknow, it wasn't a expensive super phone
[00:26:09] <aria> It was the cheapest phone that I liked texting on =P
[00:26:19] <ruffas> flac is useless
[00:26:21] <aria> And still works, battery life is still a week
[00:26:35] <aria> Flac was useful in 2007
[00:27:05] <aria> (It also did 3g and webkit, but screen is tiny so fuck that)
[00:27:15] <ruffas> it's not
[00:27:35] <ruffas> there is little to no discernible difference from an mp3 at a decent bitrate
[00:27:46] <aria> Oh there was in 2007
[00:27:53] <aria> Go find an old mp3, it'll sound like shit
[00:28:18] <ruffas> i have mp3s from 2007
[00:28:35] <ruffas> they're >= 256kbs and sound fine
[00:28:56] <aria> Do they sound as good as a new mp3 or a wav/flac/ogg?
[00:29:22] -!- VentureJ [VentureJ!Adium@hide-680AA069.austin.res.rr.com] has joined #geeknights
[00:29:40] <ruffas> sounds the same on my laptop
[00:29:57] <ruffas> maybe with high quality headphones/speakers there'd be a marked difference
[00:30:13] <ruffas> but i don't listen to any of those other formats, so for me, the point is moot
[00:30:32] <ruffas> the only reason i download flacs is to get live shows and convert them to mp3
[00:30:53] <aria> See, that is fine, because 2012 and high bitrate =P
[00:31:27] <aria> =/ There's a difference with my laptop speaker, and these speakers aren't good or anything. But they're better than the Mac ones, which are the only ones I can comapre them to
[00:31:32] <aria> Like much better
[00:32:30] <ruffas> except i've been doing it for years
[00:32:38] <ruffas> with little discernible difference
[00:35:26] <aria> They didn't mention 3g. 3G was out at this time and edge was old as shit
[00:35:32] <aria> Its after the iPhone came out
[00:37:41] <Coldguy> hi
[00:37:48] <aria> Apperantly, you could get 3G since 2002
[00:38:12] <aria> I didn't have 3G on my phone until 2006
[00:39:50] <ruffas> 3g was really prevalent in asian countries early on
[00:40:02] <ruffas> it's why smart phones had such a hard time taking hold
[00:40:19] <aria> Why's that?
[00:40:28] <aria> Did every non-iPhone 1 smart phone have 3G?
[00:40:33] <ruffas> because they already had internet
[00:40:38] <ruffas> on their flippy phones
[00:40:47] <aria> Yes, I had internet. But the screen was tiny
[00:40:52] <aria> so I didn't use that
[00:40:53] <ruffas> it's also why there's no damned wifi
[00:41:03] <aria> Other than showing cinema tickets at the door =P
[00:41:04] <ruffas> stupid, non-free, public wifi
[00:42:12] <Coldguy> hey Pence
[00:42:23] <Coldguy> did we play Ticket to Ride Asia together on Saturday?
[00:42:41] <aria> You should play that
[00:42:55] <ruffas> む is so fun to write
[00:43:00] <pence> no, I was the guy in the maroon t-shirt with the skull on it; I was in that big VivaJava game, just leaving the store when you were trying to get spot it going
[00:43:06] <pence> at least, I'm pretty sure that was you trying to get spot it going
[00:43:12] <aria> Really?
[00:43:24] <aria> You just do a swiggle and a dot
[00:43:37] <ruffas> squiggle and dot is fun
[00:43:45] <aria> The line at the top?
[00:44:01] <Coldguy> damn it
[00:44:04] <Coldguy> I saw you there
[00:44:10] <Coldguy> I thought you were another guy
[00:44:16] <ruffas> 寿 is good too
[00:44:18] <Coldguy> still need to game together at some point
[00:44:41] <aria> Oh!
[00:44:46] <aria> I thought you said "no fun"
[00:45:03] <ruffas> the opposite
[00:45:56] <aria> "Only when the fucking is totally removed will the ultimate phone be purchaced"
[00:46:31] <pence> definitely; on the plus side, I DID get to play some new games between VivaJava and Fleet
[00:46:31] <aria> I also liked the part where he talked about fucking Rym in the ass =P
[00:46:49] <Coldguy> I busted out and tought games to many new people
[00:47:05] <Coldguy> plus Alien Frountiers + Expansions is AMAZING
[00:47:46] <pence> who won that copy of Alien Frontiers? The guy I was gaming with the whole time really wanted it, so I just gave him my tickets when I left
[00:48:10] <Coldguy> Actually one of the gaming gals
[00:48:18] <Coldguy> people were like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
[00:48:49] <pence> fuck, I hope people weren't actually like NOOO
[00:48:55] <Coldguy> I convinced liek 7 people to buy the game
[00:49:03] <pence> unless
[00:49:05] <ruffas> stupid deceptive font
[00:49:12] <pence> they were just distraught that they didn't get it
[00:49:26] <Coldguy> He had 6 copies to sell
[00:49:27] <Robobuntu> 6 copies, can't lose!
[00:49:30] <Coldguy> no excuses
[00:49:40] <Coldguy> exactly
[00:49:46] <Coldguy> they were like geodudes
[00:49:56] <ruffas> what can't you do with 6 geodudes?
[00:49:57] <Robobuntu> 6 geodudes, can't lose!
[00:50:18] <Coldguy> is someone going to make a FRC meme bot

[00:53:31] <Robobuntu> you can't six ten ubuntus!

[01:05:22] <ruffas> or being a wanker if'n yer romney
[01:05:55] <yoshokatana> romney just used the phrase "hope and change"
[01:06:00] <yoshokatana> iseewhatyoudidthere.jpg
[01:06:02] <ruffas> romney's so fucking thanky
[01:06:15] <ruffas> you're ahead of me
[01:06:22] <ruffas> haven't got there yet
[01:06:25] <yoshokatana> I'm watching on yotub.

[01:06:41] <yoshokatana> wait
[01:06:59] <ruffas> me too
[01:07:00] <yoshokatana> romney is taking the peaceful diplomacy stance?
[01:07:01] <yoshokatana> this is new
[01:07:16] <ruffas> waahhhh?
[01:08:00] <yoshokatana> as much as I disagree with obama's pro-drone-attack stance, you really can't say he's been soft on "america's enemies"
[01:08:12] <yoshokatana> I mean
[01:08:12] <ruffas> not hardly
[01:08:20] <yoshokatana> he's LAUNCHING ROBOTS WILL MISSILES at people
[01:08:29] <yoshokatana> causing a bunch of collateral damage
[01:08:30] <yoshokatana> etc.
[01:08:50] <yoshokatana> then again, bush attacked kerry's military service
[01:09:02] <ruffas> yeah...
[01:09:11] <ruffas> he's got too many purple hearts!
[01:09:49] <yoshokatana> wait
[01:09:50] <yoshokatana> woah
[01:09:52] <yoshokatana> so, now
[01:10:12] <yoshokatana> romney's super anti-invading anyone
[01:10:31] <yoshokatana> wasn't he being extremely hawkish on iran not two weeks ago?
[01:11:07] <ruffas> are you really surprised
[01:11:46] <yoshokatana> not really
[01:11:48] <Coldguy> anyone interested in helpling me out with panels?
[01:11:54] <yoshokatana> at least obama's calling him out on it
[01:11:57] <yoshokatana> Coldguy: what's up?
[01:12:06] <Coldguy> looking to amke some panels
[01:12:22] <yoshokatana> Obama: "Every time you've offered an opinion, you've been wrong." Ouch. Direct.
[01:12:28] <yoshokatana> Coldguy: what kind of panels?
[01:12:35] <ruffas> romney has so much contempt
[01:12:37] <Coldguy> thinking board game panels
[01:12:41] <Coldguy> interduction one
[01:12:41] <ruffas> sooo much
[01:12:50] <Coldguy> an japense one/anime one
[01:13:05] <yoshokatana> Coldguy: you should do a Manly man anime panel
[01:14:32] <Coldguy> my anime is lacking
[01:14:46] <Coldguy> I would do old school shit
[01:15:26] <yoshokatana> man, romney's "I hate you" stare is out in force this evening.
[01:15:42] <aria> Just ask everyone if they've seen Hokuto no Ken
[01:15:50] <aria> if one person says no, you put on HnK
[01:15:54] <yoshokatana> mhmm
[01:16:11] <yoshokatana> lock the doors, play every episode back to back.
[01:16:14] <aria> If everyone says yes, you talk about how great it is and ask if they want you to put it on
[01:16:17] <aria> Yes.
[01:18:58] <yoshokatana> wait
[01:19:05] <yoshokatana> syria is iran's route to the sea?
[01:19:35] <yoshokatana> um….
[01:19:36] <yoshokatana> http://www.lonelyplanet.com
[01:19:59] <ruffas> yeah...
[01:20:03] <ruffas> you know, through iraq
[01:20:13] <ruffas> nevermind the arabian sea
[01:26:08] <yoshokatana> now romney is gazing at obama almost fondly
[01:26:38] <yoshokatana> could this be the start of something beautiful?
[01:26:42] <ruffas> he does oft gaze longingly
[01:29:25] <ruffas> we've only got 42 allies?
[01:31:16] <yoshokatana> wait, what?
[01:31:21] <yoshokatana> I was getting food
[01:31:24] <yoshokatana> what did he say?
[01:31:50] <ruffas> just that we've got 42 allies around the world
[01:32:01] <ruffas> that seems like a low number, but may well be true
[01:32:03] <yoshokatana> hm
[01:35:53] <ruffas> ooh, can't be having them teachers' unions
[01:44:04] <Coldguy> hmmm
[01:44:25] <Coldguy> is 12 enough?
[01:44:36] <yoshokatana> oh shit
[01:45:01] <yoshokatana> "he have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on."
[01:45:34] <ruffas> no wai!

[01:48:42] <ruffas> that longing gaze
[01:49:48] <yoshokatana> wait wait what?
[01:49:59] <starfox> sick burn about the horses and bayonets
[01:50:07] <yoshokatana> he wants to indict ahmadinejad for GENOCIDE?
[01:51:06] <yoshokatana> dude is not a very pleasant fellow, but if we're going to start handing out war crime indictments I have a few former US politicians who should be further up in line
[02:04:52] -!- starfox has quit [Quit: Page closed]
[02:23:13] <GauntletWizard> what the heck was the battleship quote?
[02:25:48] <ruffas> which battleship quote?
[02:25:58] <ruffas> the horses and bayonets?
[02:26:14] <GauntletWizard> http://www.politico.com
[02:27:34] <ruffas> that's pretty good context
[02:27:46] <ruffas> didn't watch the clip since it's still on
[02:28:03] <ruffas> romney's talking about how he'll expand our navy
[02:32:56] <aria> Latest Loading ready run pretty good http://www.escapistmagazine.com
[02:33:36] <ruffas> so hey...i've got this pair of underwear i need exorcised
[02:34:38] <aria> I like that quote
[02:34:48] <aria> other than the part where he said they're not reducing military spending

[02:45:51] <belarm> How goes, mates?
[02:46:12] <ruffas> along
[02:46:28] <ruffas> debate was...well, romney didn't look great
[02:46:38] <belarm> I haven't watched it yet.
[02:46:45] <ruffas> JET is intentionally obtuse
[02:47:00] <okeefe> I tried, but watching Romney annoys me.
[02:47:20] <ruffas> greatly
[02:47:30] <belarm> I can sympathize with that, okeefe
[02:47:46] <aria> Where can I find that debate?
[02:48:07] <Coldguy> Australkioqa update
[02:48:09] <belarm> Um....usenet? Piratebay? C-Span?
[02:48:11] <Coldguy> https://www.facebook.com
[02:48:14] <okeefe> Also, I already mailed my ballot.
[02:48:17] <Coldguy> your welcome
[02:48:35] <okeefe> This is it when it was live: http://www.youtube.com
[02:48:40] <ruffas> i don't know that it's up after the livestream yet
[02:49:14] <aria> But I can't go back
[02:50:16] <belarm> I prefer to download the debates after they happen, so that I can pause, rewind, fast-forward, and scream obscenities at it.
[02:50:28] <aria> Really?
[02:50:29] <okeefe> This is a fun bit from the debate: http://www.politico.com
[02:50:35] <aria> I prefer youtube streaming me videos instantly
[02:52:07] <belarm> Live streaming is good, aria, but I have problems with it at times.
[02:52:24] <ruffas> i got lag several times
[02:52:25] <ruffas> stupid buffering
[02:52:41] <aria> Hey geeks of IRC; Live like windrammers as you fuck!
[02:52:52] <belarm> I mean, I only have a 22/5 Mbps connection...
[02:52:53] <Coldguy> ?
[02:53:03] <belarm> (nominally, at least.)
[02:53:59] <aria> Thats a good connection
[02:54:06] <aria> I think thats as good as mine, if not better
[02:54:13] <aria> you shouldn't be having problems with youtube =P
[02:54:20] <belarm> It is when it works, aria.
[02:54:31] <yoshokatana> 22/5?
[02:54:46] <yoshokatana> I think I have 100/25 right now
[02:54:47] <belarm> Of course, it would work a lot better if I weren't constantly downloading from Usenet.
[02:54:50] <aria> 22 down, 5 up Im guessing
[02:54:53] <yoshokatana> what the frak is happening outside?
[02:55:00] <yoshokatana> it sounds like bombs are going off
[02:55:05] <belarm> Out....side?
[02:55:17] <yoshokatana> I think someone is shooting fireworks off outside my front door
[02:55:18] <belarm> I'm sorry, what is that?
[02:55:42] <ruffas> i'll see your fireworks and raise you a shootout
[02:55:49] <ruffas> this was yesterday, but still
[02:55:51] <yoshokatana> ruffas: really?
[02:55:53] <yoshokatana> jeez.
[02:56:04] <yoshokatana> I haven't had those since I lived in Rochester
[02:56:18] <belarm> Nice. The best we get around here is football games at the highschool three blocks away.
[02:56:35] <belarm> Personally, I'd prefer shoot-outs.
[02:56:51] <ruffas> i saw helis circling yesterday night and thought: there's news happening nearby
[02:56:57] <ruffas> then i hear gunshots
[03:01:25] <belarm> That sounds...exciting, ruffas.

[03:03:55] <ruffas> it's unusual for this part of orlando
[03:05:25] <belarm> I just started an fdupes process on a 22TB share - any bets on when it will finish?
[03:05:55] <ruffas> 2012
[03:06:37] <belarm> Sorry, ruffas, you'll need to be more specific - the over/under is 8 weeks.
[03:07:28] <ruffas> that covers the entirity of 2012
[03:07:57] <ruffas> nvm, there are 11 weeks left

[03:12:13] <belarm> Was it official, or just decided upon by the community?
[03:12:36] <ruffas> yes?
[03:12:58] * belarm lols
[03:15:29] <okeefe> Oh right, tomorrow's an Apple day.
[03:15:39] <ruffas> oh?
[03:16:31] <okeefe> Rumors of a mini iPad and retina-display 13" MBP. And who knows what else.
[03:16:42] <belarm> MBP?
[03:17:24] <okeefe> MacBook Pro.
[03:17:32] <belarm> Ah.
[03:17:37] <belarm> I remember those.
[03:18:25] <belarm> Apple needs to put Wozniak in charge of development.

[03:18:59] <belarm> wb, aria.
[03:19:03] <okeefe> If I needed someone to optimize 128KB of RAM, I'd get Woz. But I think those days are long gone.
[03:19:33] <belarm> He has one distinct advantage over everyone at Apple, though.
[03:19:57] <aria> Did I disconnect?
[03:19:59] <aria> Oh yeah I did..
[03:20:01] <aria> Thanks!
[03:20:01] <belarm> He's an engineer.
[03:20:12] <okeefe> ...
[03:20:20] <ruffas> he's an old coot!
[03:21:39] <belarm> You mean like RMS, Dennis Ritchie, Brian Kernighan, Donald Knuth, or, I don't know...Steve Jobs?
[03:23:13] <belarm> Or maybe David Korn, Linus Torvalds, Alan Cox, or David Moon?
[03:23:49] <ruffas> old coots all!
[03:24:04] <ruffas> [totally kidding]
[03:24:25] <belarm> I gathered :-p
[03:25:11] <okeefe> RMS is definitely an old coot. And Ritchie is a deceased one.
[03:25:30] <belarm> As is Jobs, okeefe - I'm aware.
[03:25:57] <belarm> ruffas, have you ever read The Tao of Programming by Geoffrey James?
[03:26:12] <ruffas> ima say no
[03:26:19] <belarm> http://www.canonical.org
[03:26:58] <belarm> ^Wickedly funny, if you know anything about the history of computer science^
[03:27:47] <ruffas> i'll say i know more than 0 about CS
[03:28:42] <okeefe> I'm not a huge fan of mysticism layered on top of science (computer or otherwise), but some of the CS koans are amusing.
[03:29:51] <belarm> The important thing to remember about CS and AI koans, okeefe, is that they're all tongue-in-cheek.
[03:31:08] <belarm> "And is the Tao in the DOS for a personal computer?"

[03:46:02] <okeefe> Is it the BEST 13 minutes? :)
[03:46:13] <aria> Well I wouldn't know
[03:46:22] <aria> Foreign policy
[03:47:01] <okeefe> As a foreigner, I think you're best to judge the debate.
[03:47:46] <aria> But I don't have a frame of reference to say how good it was. I can judge who won though =P
[03:53:18] <ruffas> be our Senior Foreign Expert
[03:54:31] <aria> Those countries were indeed not part of the united states, I think the talk was quite foreign centric
[03:56:51] <okeefe> Is your country four years closer to a nuke, aria. (Also, what isn't every country four years closer... after four years?)
[03:57:32] <aria> Well its relative to the US's estimate
[03:57:39] <aria> if you think the UK has a nuke
[03:57:44] <aria> in 4 years, they'll still have a nuke
[03:58:02] <aria> If you think they're working towards getting a nuke
[03:58:07] <aria> and that project will take them 5 years
[03:58:21] <aria> and then someone smarter says "Nah, I think itll take 5 months"
[03:58:32] <aria> you'll go by the smarter persons estimate instead, because smarter person
[03:58:41] <aria> but then suddenly your estimate is off by 4 years!
[03:58:45] <aria> Now they're 4 years closer

[11:33:51] <bronzdragon> WHY, 10%, WHY
[11:37:00] <ruffas> what's in not-english?
[11:37:41] <bronzdragon> "applications"
[11:37:49] <bronzdragon> which is not a word you can directly translate

[12:00:30] <aria> It was not great...

[12:00:58] <aria> Not all the frames ever, but generally pretty good animation
[12:01:16] <ruffas> it's pretty bad
[12:03:15] <aria> I would be really interested in seeing a Xmen show done fully internally at Madhouse with them being allowed to do whatever
[12:03:29] <aria> Cause they at least know pacing.
[12:04:24] <ruffas> were any of the madhouse marvels any good?
[12:04:34] <aria> I have not seen any other ones

[13:55:57] <bronzdragon> But in this room, currently nothing, I think

[13:56:32] <originalme8> *week
[13:56:43] <bronzdragon> Has it been?
[13:56:45] <originalme8> Gah, my brain on morning.
[13:56:46] <bronzdragon> dang...
[13:57:38] <originalme8> I may have logged in, but I wasn't really here. I have been so busy at work, and that's usually where I have time to log in and chat.
[13:58:51] <bronzdragon> That's fair
[13:58:59] <bronzdragon> I'm here really sparocially too
[13:59:17] <originalme8> I haven't even been able to get on Counterstrike in about 2~ weeks.

[14:01:00] <originalme8> I know, that is blasphemy, and I am shamed. :\

[14:06:19] <bronzdragon> Eh, close enough
[14:07:54] <originalme8> Man, I haven't even had a chance to listen to the new episode of Geeknights.
[14:08:12] <originalme8> This is what happens when the other senior engineer leaves on vacation, and then gets sick.
[14:08:30] <apreche> originalme8: why are you listening to geeknights at all?
[14:08:46] <originalme8> It'
[14:08:52] <originalme8> s a good way to kill the comute time.
[14:09:35] <apreche> I think there are better ways
[14:10:56] <originalme8> Meh, believe it or not it's a decent show. Gives me a few chuckles.

[15:09:34] <bronzdragon> I think making the mantis my repair crew was a mistake
[15:09:45] <apreche> bronzdragon: yes, mantis is only good at fighting.
[15:09:49] <apreche> engi is repair crew
[15:09:53] <bronzdragon> But they run so fast!
[15:10:01] <bronzdragon> Also, the only alternative is rock crew
[15:10:02] <bronzdragon> ... they are not fast.
[15:10:06] <apreche> so they can run around the enemy ship killing dudes
[15:10:09] <apreche> rockis good at repair
[15:10:12] <apreche> especially putting out fires
[15:10:13] <Neito> I use Mantis on weapons and defense.
[15:10:29] <bronzdragon> Firebomb really helps rock invaders though
[15:10:33] <bronzdragon> I can't firebomb my mantis D=
[15:10:41] <apreche> rock also has more hp, so can repair things in low oxygen without dying
[15:10:47] <Neito> Mantis get a 20% EXP boost on weapons.
[15:12:19] <bronzdragon> Wait, they do?
[15:16:33] <Neito> According to the FTL wiki.
[15:17:35] <bronzdragon> I saw
[15:17:56] <bronzdragon> ... I'm running out of missiles
[15:17:59] <bronzdragon> that's not good
[15:18:56] <Neito> So, some woman in Tokyo posted requirements for a boyfriend.
[15:19:58] <Neito> (The following preferences apply to programmers and other engineers)
[15:19:58] <Neito> Someone who writes beautiful code--it makes me cry tears of joy. (Required)
[15:19:58] <Neito> Someone who maintains their own server (Required, Linux preferred)
[15:19:58] <Neito> Someone who will let me help them maintain their own server (Required)
[15:19:58] <Neito> Someone with public repos on Github (Required)
[15:21:34] <bronzdragon> Why are her boyfriend requirements also job requirements?
[15:21:44] <Neito> Unfortunately, she also prefers people who only play an hour of video games a day and likes Zynga games.
[15:21:59] <Neito> Which seem like mutually exclusve requirements to me.
[15:22:50] <bronzdragon> Apperantly not
[15:28:25] <bronzdragon> Hey Americans!
[15:28:38] <bronzdragon> .... why is it month/day/year?
[15:28:56] <Neito> Because you say April 12, 1999, not 12th April 1999.
[15:29:23] <bronzdragon> But... I say "The twelved of april, 1999"
[15:29:36] <Neito> Then you're pretentious and your opinion should be ignored.
[15:29:38] <bronzdragon> *twelfth?
[15:29:42] <bronzdragon> Not sure...
[15:29:47] <bronzdragon> But it doesn't make sense! =(
[15:29:55] <bronzdragon> It messes me up every tiiiime
[15:36:51] <Neito> It makes perfect sense, if you think in the right way.
[15:37:25] <bronzdragon> The problem usually is that I can't tell what format a date is just by looking at it
[15:37:35] <bronzdragon> Unless it's the 13th or later.
[15:38:06] <Neito> That's why I use ISO Standard dates when I remember to.
[15:38:36] <Neito> 2012-10-23.
[15:38:58] <bronzdragon> Yeah
[15:39:00] <Neito> There's no ambiguity there.

[16:19:31] <ProfPangloss|Work> God, RIT class registration has gone way down the shitter
[16:19:41] <ProfPangloss|Work> Fuckin Peoplesoft coming in and fucking up any semblance of usability
[16:21:03] <apreche> ProfPangloss|Work: there was no usability before Peoplesoft, so...
[16:21:09] <apreche> be glad you aren't telnetting into a VAX cluster
[16:22:58] <apreche> I am getting good at JavaScript "The Good Way" scary...
[16:24:16] <okeefe> Vincent ran some Apocalypse World quotes from a Russian gamer though google translate. Apparently, "game master" translates as "brain wizard".
[16:27:23] <ProfPangloss|Work> apreche: Our usability has been fine before now, actually - the system made it really simple to find the classes you want, see info on those sections (holds, prereqs, etc), and get ready for registration.
[16:27:43] <ProfPangloss|Work> The registration itself was a clusterfuck, opening at 6am and immediately taking the servers off the network from heavy load
[16:27:54] <apreche> I never understood
[16:28:01] <apreche> they should just let everyone submit their registration whenever they want
[16:28:11] <apreche> and then have the computer churn through it based on a priority system
[16:28:24] <apreche> and then email you back what you got, and what you didn't get
[16:28:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> Technically that's exactly what it is/was, the "priority" is given by year level
[16:28:42] <apreche> so there's no reason for it to open at 6am
[16:28:46] <apreche> it should always be open
[16:28:54] <ProfPangloss|Work> But it has to start somewhere
[16:28:59] <apreche> no it doesn't
[16:29:22] <apreche> if you remove the idea of first come first serve
[16:29:31] <apreche> you can have it always be open 24/7
[16:29:41] <apreche> so people casually submit requests
[16:29:51] <apreche> whenever they want
[16:30:00] <apreche> and then it goes through and processes them later
[16:30:28] <ProfPangloss|Work> So you're suggesting to take all the load off the users - instead of giving them a start time, give them a deadline?
[16:30:34] <apreche> yes
[16:30:43] <ProfPangloss|Work> And at the end, the computer processes/sorts all the registration requests based on priority?
[16:30:48] <apreche> yes
[16:30:51] <ProfPangloss|Work> Hm.
[16:30:55] <apreche> i suggested it to them in 2005
[16:31:04] <apreche> there was a meeting to discuss the new system
[16:31:10] <apreche> that we never got to use because we left before it was in place
[16:31:24] <ProfPangloss|Work> Welp
[16:31:36] <ProfPangloss|Work> That new system was basically just an interface to do what you guys did before
[16:31:44] <ProfPangloss|Work> You still had people at 6AM bombarding the system with course codes
[16:31:52] <apreche> yep
[16:32:09] <ProfPangloss|Work> What they're doing different this time is letting people set up a "shopping cart" ahead of time
[16:32:18] <apreche> so close
[16:32:21] <apreche> yet, so far
[16:32:27] <ProfPangloss|Work> So you wade through the system and pick your classes, add them to the shopping cart
[16:32:45] <ProfPangloss|Work> Then you take all the students segregated by year - I'm registering today, for example
[16:32:56] <ProfPangloss|Work> And the system randomly assigns them different start times.
[16:33:21] <ProfPangloss|Work> And you can "register" anytime between that start time and the end of add/drop week in the new quarter.
[16:33:40] <apreche> that's awful
[16:33:44] <apreche> what if you aren't available at that time?
[16:33:47] <ProfPangloss|Work> All you actually do during that registration is click "register," and it signs you up for those classes
[16:33:54] <apreche> and of course, the systeem is overloaded all the time because everyone bombards it at once
[16:33:58] <ProfPangloss|Work> nono
[16:34:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> First of all, let's say I have a 12:30 appointment
[16:34:18] <ProfPangloss|Work> (appointment = start time, not an actual appointment)
[16:34:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> (but it's what they're calling it, 'cause they're dumbasses)
[16:34:38] <ProfPangloss|Work> And my friend Mark has a 1PM appointment
[16:34:40] <apreche> yeah, but it's still first come first serve
[16:34:50] <ProfPangloss|Work> Starting at 12:30, I can click register
[16:34:51] <apreche> so I'm competing with all the other 12:30 people, so I have to get there at 12:30
[16:34:53] <apreche> or else
[16:35:00] <ProfPangloss|Work> When 1 comes around, Mark can click register, but I can still click register when Mark can.
[16:35:14] <ProfPangloss|Work> Sure there's competition, but the system has yet to be overloaded.
[16:35:27] <ProfPangloss|Work> And just by the nature of most programs at RIT, the only students getting screwed are 1st and 2nd years.
[16:35:37] <apreche> system was overloaded back in our day
[16:35:39] <ProfPangloss|Work> Hell, I'm registering for 3rd year classes with 4th year standing. I'm not concerned at all
[16:35:40] <apreche> so at least that is fixed
[16:35:51] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oh yeah, that was fun Freshman year
[16:36:15] <ProfPangloss|Work> Registering for my first winter quarter, I remember sitting in my cozy dorm at NRH, RAs walking down the halls offering donuts to all the students registering
[16:36:33] <ProfPangloss|Work> All at once, every freshman on campus hit F5 simultaneously, and we were all given 404s
[16:37:11] <ProfPangloss|Work> Not 5 minutes passed before angered freshmen ran out into the quad (at 6am, mind you), yelling FUCK
[16:37:45] <ProfPangloss|Work> I sat there, vigilant, for another 45 minutes before I finally got into the system, nabbed all the classes I wanted (apparently no other IT majors had successfully gotten in before me), and went back to bed
[16:38:05] <ProfPangloss|Work> Or attempted to go back to bed anyway - the chorus of FUCKs was in full swing
[16:38:25] <apreche> I would always just register for whatever I could
[16:38:32] <apreche> then walk to the CS office and have them register me for the rest
[16:38:38] <apreche> until later years when it wasn't an issue
[16:38:44] <ProfPangloss|Work> So yeah, at least we don't have people yelling FUCK at 6am, you'll hear it when students log on to see their enrollment appointment
[16:39:02] <ProfPangloss|Work> 'Cause some students get in as early as 7am, whereas I (for example) register at 2PM today
[16:39:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> And I mean, some students were crying out that this is TOTALLY UNFAIR and THE SYSTEM IS TRYING TO FUCK ME OVER and such
[16:39:41] <apreche> also
[16:39:46] <apreche> I wouldn't base the system on seniority
[16:39:46] <apreche> but GPA
[16:40:05] <ProfPangloss|Work> But really, those same students were getting fucked with 6am simultaneous registration already, the only difference is that they know well ahead of time if they're gonna have issues
[16:40:37] <ProfPangloss|Work> I think seniority is fine as an initial sorting - the day-by-day thing works pretty well
[16:41:18] <ProfPangloss|Work> But once GPA comes into it, you're inviting class warfare, basically
[16:41:48] <ProfPangloss|Work> The high-GPA students think they're entitled to the classes they need, whereas the low-GPA students blame their failures on bad class sections and argue they're in a Catch-22
[16:42:39] <ProfPangloss|Work> (that said, I'd love to see the explosive arguments on the RIT subreddit if they were to segregate by GPA)
[16:43:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> I'm definitely in the minority of people arguing in favor of the new registration system
[16:43:29] <ProfPangloss|Work> But what I'm definitely not happy about is the completely shit interface they've got for navigating/adding classes
[16:44:07] <ProfPangloss|Work> (also, the change to the new system largely happened because of the switch to semesters, which I'm already pissed off about)

[17:01:41] <bronzdragon> Computer is sleepy...
[17:02:03] <okeefe> Fancy venue.
[17:02:20] <Apsup> I get home, on the computer, 5 minutes later I'm invited to play dota. I've become so much more popular after I started playing it.
[17:02:48] <bronzdragon> So... you've learned how it works?
[17:03:18] <Apsup> The game or popularity?
[17:03:25] <bronzdragon> Yes.
[17:03:28] <bronzdragon> That one.
[17:04:51] <farragar> Christ, I've been teaching two friends of mine dota
[17:04:58] <farragar> It's painful
[17:05:08] <bronzdragon> Can't imagine why... =P
[17:05:56] <farragar> I swear it's only when you're teaching the game to someone that you appreciate how counter-intuitive half the shit is
[17:06:53] <bronzdragon> "Oh, I see your lane pushed more towards you, lemmie help out! =D"
[17:07:13] <bronzdragon> "Oh manz, gotta destroy those towers!"
[17:07:45] <Apsup> Every update I wish for the tutorials to be implemeted. I want that more than any new heroes or other shit like that.
[17:08:07] <farragar> It's like linguistics or something, the best I can do is just tell you all the general rules
[17:08:13] <bronzdragon> (Note, I'm just guessing shit I'd do wrong from what little I've heard)
[17:08:27] <farragar> But there's so many exceptions, chances are you'll fuck something up anyway
[17:09:46] <Apsup> I pretty much watched bunch of youtube videos and read few blog posts before I stared playing so I had little edge, but there is no way I can expect other people to go throught such hassle to play a game.
[17:10:32] <bronzdragon> ... watching youtubes is a hassle?
[17:10:39] <bronzdragon> I do that all day anyway.
[17:12:19] <farragar> See, I had a full team of 5 to play with (this was back in the days of HoN, though)
[17:12:40] <farragar> We played against each other most of the time, then slowly got better as we worked the game out
[17:12:58] <farragar> Eventually we started playing against other teams
[17:13:25] <bronzdragon> Aha? How good were you?
[17:14:03] <farragar> Well we started off awful - I think like three of us had ever played DOTA once or twice
[17:14:32] <farragar> Over a couple years we got pretty good though, we played in big LAN tournament in the Uk and came 4th
[17:15:09] <farragar> a couple of fucking professional teams flew their players in from Europe and stomped us
[17:16:17] <bronzdragon> Fun fact, being hardcore as shit was invented in Europe
[17:16:32] <bronzdragon> In the far north, where ifyou were not hard core, you'd instantly freeze, were you to look outside
[17:16:53] <farragar> true true
[17:17:18] <farragar> That was HoN not dota, though. The skills transition to some extent, but I feel so derpy whenever I play dota now
[17:17:43] <farragar> It's like, I know what I want to do, but the game is subtly different and I can never quite pull it off
[17:17:58] <farragar> Not to mention that we haven't played properly for about a year...
[17:18:03] <farragar> I stick to CS now
[17:18:59] <okeefe> Mmmmm, 13" MBP.

[17:31:53] <bronzdragon> NEVER
[17:31:55] <bronzdragon> Seen.
[17:31:56] <originalme8> Well, I am the only senior engineer in house today and it seems that there is a site with 5000+ users has gone down.
[17:32:20] <originalme8> So going to spend my day reading log files, who's in!?
[17:32:24] <ProfPangloss|Work> Things I did not know exist but I want in me right now: Stuffed Bananas
[17:32:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> http://gatherandnest.com
[17:32:49] <originalme8> Is that chocolate? o.O
[17:32:57] <ProfPangloss|Work> Nutella, I believe
[17:33:18] <originalme8> Oh, you lost me then. Back to the logs!
[17:34:10] <bronzdragon> I don't like Bananas, so I was never in.
[17:34:41] <ProfPangloss|Work> I mean, to be fair, neither do I
[17:34:53] <ProfPangloss|Work> But let's be honest here, the concept applies equally well in other ways.
[17:34:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> In fact, I have an idea right now
[17:35:04] <ProfPangloss|Work> Take a soft serve ice cream cone
[17:35:10] <bronzdragon> Aha?
[17:35:15] <originalme8> Now that, I could get into!
[17:35:21] <farragar> Ehhhh, okay. I've spent 6 hours writting shitty Java for a shitty Ogg library with no documentation, and I'd still rather be doing that than trolling through logs.
[17:35:22] <Robobuntu> 6 hours, can't lose!
[17:35:25] <ProfPangloss|Work> Clear out the middle (how, i dunno, a drill? Whatever)
[17:35:32] <ProfPangloss|Work> (Or a straw. yum)
[17:35:37] <bronzdragon> Wait... what?
[17:35:40] <ProfPangloss|Work> Fill center tube with nutella
[17:35:47] <bronzdragon> Soft serve ice cream cone has no centre
[17:35:52] <bronzdragon> Unless there's already icecream in there
[17:35:55] <bronzdragon> but then, what flavor is it?
[17:35:59] <originalme8> Bleck...nutella >.<
[17:36:03] <bronzdragon> Vanilla? nobody gets vanilla ice cream.
[17:36:13] <ProfPangloss|Work> Then put it in the freezer
[17:36:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> Now you have a vanilla ice cream cone with a frozen shaft of nutella in the center
[17:36:30] <bronzdragon> ... don't put Nutella in the freezer
[17:36:32] <bronzdragon> It goes bad.
[17:36:59] <originalme8> Peanut butter on the other hand, that would be amazing
[17:37:05] <ProfPangloss|Work> Oo
[17:37:08] <ProfPangloss|Work> Chocolate ice cream, peanut butter
[17:37:09] <ProfPangloss|Work> You could do that
[17:37:24] <bronzdragon> I don't like peanut butter either...
[17:37:40] <originalme8> It's OK bronzdragon, nobody is perfect.
[17:37:48] <originalme8> Except me that is :D
[17:37:55] <bronzdragon> You don't like Nutella
[17:37:59] <ProfPangloss|Work> The trick is getting the filling in the shaft without having to displace the ice cream altogether - nutella and peanut butter are too thick to pour in like a fluid
[17:38:09] <bronzdragon> If your taste was perfect, you'd be able to enjoy anything.
[17:38:16] <ProfPangloss|Work> So that's why you heat it up, pour it in the shaft, then put the cone back in the freezer just long enough to stiffen up again
[17:38:33] <bronzdragon> If the iceream is solid, you can just press it in. Fresh icecream should be fine.
[17:39:01] <ProfPangloss|Work> That's true
[17:39:15] <ProfPangloss|Work> I was thinking soft server because it's soft enough to give you an even distribution throughout the cone
[17:39:21] <farragar> Hehe, you're talking about stiffening shafts.
[17:39:44] <ProfPangloss|Work> Yeaa buddy
[17:39:56] <bronzdragon> ... So?
[17:40:06] <bronzdragon> We could start talking about mining if you want innuendoes
[17:40:08] <bronzdragon> Also has shafts
[17:40:16] <bronzdragon> it's dark, suffocating, damp, sweaty...
[17:40:29] <farragar> mmm
[17:40:31] <bronzdragon> You gotta drill really deep to get to the good stuff, but it's dangerous
[17:40:31] <farragar> keep going
[17:40:41] <bronzdragon> Also, it heats up the longer you pound at it down there.
[17:40:51] <bronzdragon> If you're old-school, you'll involve parakeets!
[17:40:54] <bronzdragon> ... wait
[17:42:30] <originalme8> Poor birds. We should have a moment of silence for those parakeets lost in the deep, dark, warm, wet, and caves. especially those that were lost in the one's overgrown with vines and bushes.
[17:44:09] <bronzdragon> Odd thing is, only miners are allowed down these deep dark shafts
[17:44:16] <bronzdragon> While in sex, minors are not allowed
[17:45:30] <farragar> I wonder if people googling for miner sex is considered suspicious
[17:45:42] <bronzdragon> Probably
[17:45:44] <Zappy> rofl most awkward role play ever
[17:46:17] <bronzdragon> Really?
[17:46:24] <bronzdragon> C'mon, you can use a vibrator as a drill
[17:46:26] <ProfPangloss|Work> After the fact, chatting with guys at the bar, "Yeah it was just like I was having sex with a miner"
[17:46:35] <bronzdragon> And a dildo as a pickaxe

[18:08:31] <ProfPangloss|Work> apreche: Successful registration. Took all of 13 seconds
[18:10:26] <bronzdragon> ... I have 2 ion blasts!
[18:10:32] <bronzdragon> why can't I suffocate these fools?

[18:13:35] <bronzdragon> It's a prirate mantis fighter
[18:13:38] <bronzdragon> *pirate
[18:14:08] <bronzdragon> For a moment there I considered them having Level 2 oxygen, but ion damage stacks

[18:35:58] <pence> hi!
[18:36:46] <pence> I was looking at the logs on the site, and this is great:

[18:54:10] <pence> I almost ran LB
[18:54:12] <okeefe> I take issue to calling it lazy.
[18:54:26] <pence> but honestly, I wouldn't mind playing it at the con
[18:54:55] <okeefe> I'm a little disappointed no one is running Poison'd.
[18:55:07] <pence> I'm probably not going to get into either regiment game
[18:55:25] <pence> since I'm running in the first slot
[18:55:39] <bronzdragon> I wish I could go to burning con =(
[18:57:00] <Apsup> I'm running a mini campaign of Lady Blackbird currently myself, but I call it lazy because it gives everything to GM in short little paggage, so easy.
[19:01:17] <pence> I take lazy as a compliment, makes my life easier
[19:04:59] <Apsup> Yea, I have nothing against the game itself, it's a beautiful thing really.
[19:05:33] <Apsup> And sometimes it's nice to have easy life as a gm where you don't need to do any prep other than read about 10 pages of text.
[19:05:34] <Robobuntu> you can't about 10 pages!
