[00:07:22] <GauntletWizard> what can I say, I'm an affectionate kinda guy
[00:07:26] <GauntletWizard> I affect it
[00:08:43] <aria> I need some sort of-- transy video gamey music that I can listen to while typing things out
[00:08:54] <aria> VVVVVV soundtrack is too energetic
[00:10:32] <Bronzdragon> https://www.youtube.com
[00:10:53] <aria> Eh thats good.
[00:11:05] <GauntletWizard> Man, Pinkemena gets all the best fanworks
[00:11:22] <Bronzdragon> I know right!
[00:11:30] <Bronzdragon> Although, she makes the best musical partner.
[00:11:49] <Bronzdragon> She's about happyness and partying. And what goes better with parties than music?
[00:22:23] -!- yoshokatana has quit [Quit: yoshokatana]
[00:22:42] <aria> So what kind of features do people want in HUDs?
[00:25:23] <GauntletWizard> HUD for what?
[00:25:35] <Bronzdragon> Our game
[00:25:38] <GauntletWizard> I want my ship speed, ammo status, and current com channels
[00:25:38] <Bronzdragon> Shooting game
[00:25:51] <Bronzdragon> Perfect
[00:25:55] <Bronzdragon> We coudl totally have those
[00:26:23] <aria> Anything else?
[00:27:11] <aria> Ammo status is on the gun, ship speed doesn't apply, since you're not in your ship. Although I guess a star-map could be neat
[00:27:21] <aria> Current com channels we have
[00:27:38] <aria> But we want as many neat useless HUD features as possible to add immersion
[00:27:55] <aria> (they will be hidden 90% of the time)
[00:29:44] <aria> I watched the google glass concept video
[00:29:49] <aria> we've got all of those things at least..
[00:30:53] <GauntletWizard> Coolant flow rate. External Temperature. Last system antivirus scan. Games of Tic-Tac-Toe won
[00:31:42] <GauntletWizard> System CPU, System Uptime, System Ram usage <- All of which can be taken from the host machine, which is a neat easter-egg without distracting from the immersion
[00:31:48] <aria> But those things can't be dynamic (since there is no tic tac toe minigame)
[00:31:56] <GauntletWizard> yes, they can
[00:32:01] <GauntletWizard> Goats Teleported
[00:32:24] <aria> although I suppose external temprature could actually be useful information when you see a survivor
[00:32:24] -!- ruffas [ruffas!b85a3769@hide-B64552F4.mibbit.com] has joined #geeknights
[00:32:28] <GauntletWizard> You can, every time it's displayed, add a random number to the GoTW counter
[00:32:56] <aria> Should have a "yes"-printed counter =P
[00:33:15] <GauntletWizard> and having gameplay elements introduced through ancillary hud elements that were previously 'blink and you miss them' is an awesome bit of foreshadowing
[00:33:21] <aria> I do like the CPU/RAM/HDD usage
[00:34:18] <Bronzdragon> RUFFAS YOU MUST TELL ME HOW YOUR DAY WAS
[00:51:42] <Bronzdragon> =(
[00:51:46] <Bronzdragon> Fine, be that way, ruffas
[01:17:18] <aria> Anything else, GauntletWizard?
[01:28:03] -!- yoshokatana [yoshokatana!~yoshokata@hide-3567B4F5.nyc.res.rr.com] has joined #geeknights
[01:44:20] <Bronzdragon> Ha, yoshokatana
[01:45:16] <yoshokatana> hullo
[01:57:41] <nine> Hey there Yosho.
[02:01:38] -!- Apsup has quit [Ping timeout]
[02:03:34] -!- Apsup [Apsup!~Aleksi@hide-B4B1B39B.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[02:06:28] <aria> Apsup
[02:06:30] <aria> you know video games
[02:06:32] <aria> you know sci fi
[02:06:39] <aria> what goes in your HUD in the future?
[02:07:13] <aria> (excluding the obvious ones)
[02:07:45] <nine> The same thing that goes in the HUD of today.
[02:07:48] <nine> What a stupid question.
[02:08:00] <aria> We don't actually have HUDs...
[02:08:15] <nine> Do you still live in the 80s?
[02:08:28] <aria> It appears so
[02:08:33] <aria> what provides your HUD?
[02:09:17] <nine> I don't have a HUD personally.
[02:09:23] <nine> For I don't own a car with one or a jetplane.
[02:09:37] <aria> Oh...
[02:09:40] <aria> my car has a HUD
[02:09:43] <aria> But I don't
[02:09:56] <nine> ...
[02:10:10] <nine> So then why the hell do you ask the question?
[02:10:11] <aria> my glasses/baseball cap/facemask doesn't
[02:10:32] <aria> But one of those items were to get a HUD, what should it display
[02:10:44] <nine> Context sensitive data.
[02:10:50] -!- Apsup has quit [Ping timeout]
[02:10:52] <nine> Because a hud in your glasses is retarded.
[02:11:07] <nine> It's too fucking generic.
[02:11:07] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[02:11:14] <nine> Hush dumbuntu.
[02:12:48] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Aleksi@hide-B4B1B39B.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[02:19:29] <aria> So the new Mario game has flying.. http://www.youtube.com
[02:37:03] <aria> right, ok, good night folks
[02:37:07] -!- aria has quit [Quit: leaving]
[02:42:07] <yoshokatana> holy shit
[02:42:08] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[02:42:12] <yoshokatana> so, I'm watching Fringe
[02:42:26] <yoshokatana> and there's an opening shot of a soccer field in Providence, RI
[02:42:41] <yoshokatana> I used to play on that same field in elementary school
[02:42:45] <nine> o:
[02:42:53] <nine> You mean a football field?
[02:42:59] <yoshokatana> HAR HAR HAR EUROPE
[02:43:01] <yoshokatana> but yeah
[02:43:02] <yoshokatana> woah
[02:43:31] <yoshokatana> I only remember because once a plane passed over and I saw its shadow for a brief moment
[02:43:36] <yoshokatana> and though that was pretty neat
[02:43:40] <yoshokatana> *thought
[02:47:35] <nine> More like HAR HAR HAR THE ENTIRE REST OF THE WORLD.
[02:47:49] <nine> It's only 'soccer' in the US, right?
[02:51:31] <yoshokatana> I think so

[14:04:09] <Bronzdragon> geeze
[14:05:16] <Zappy> untapped labor force, sounds like you're suggesting Black Slavery 2013 :O *gasp*
[14:06:26] <Bronzdragon> Nah, Black slavery is when they enslave us

[15:49:00] -!- spacejam [spacejam!spacejam@hide-C81D949.nyc.res.rr.com] has joined #geeknights
[15:55:46] <Apsup> Hello my internet comrades.
[15:55:58] <spacejam> how goes it?
[15:56:38] <Apsup> Came home from the first real session of a new rpg campaign. Seems promising.
[16:00:47] <Bronzdragon> Hai spacejam
[16:00:49] <Bronzdragon> Hai Apsup
[16:00:59] <spacejam> nice
[16:01:15] <spacejam> hello bro dro
[16:10:24] <Apsup> It's a dragon. Made out of Bronz!
[16:13:36] <Bronzdragon> Indeed.
[18:24:14] <aria> "black cab" is "pirate cab" in Norway
[18:31:33] <Bronzdragon> Oh, is it now?
[18:31:44] <aria> Also official cabs are often black
[18:32:02] <aria> There are also a bunch of ways to exploint pirate cabs
[18:32:22] <aria> where you can straight up refuse to pay them while having given the impression that you were planning on paying them
[18:32:57] <Bronzdragon> ...
[18:53:33] <aria> How can you not know what The City of London is?
[18:54:02] <Bronzdragon> Me?
[18:54:12] <aria> Scott and/or Rym
[18:54:20] <Bronzdragon> Well, I didn't before CGP's video either
[18:56:02] <Bronzdragon> Relevant XKCD, btw; http://xkcd.com
[18:57:30] <aria> Yes, but this is-- yknow, geography
[18:57:41] <Bronzdragon> Not... really
[19:57:31] -!- yoshokatana [yoshokatana!yoshokatan@hide-3567B4F5.nyc.res.rr.com] has joined #geeknights
[20:03:55] <Bronzdragon> HAI yoshokatana!
[20:04:31] <yoshokatana> morning(?)
[20:04:47] <Bronzdragon> 21.04, since you asked.
[20:05:01] <yoshokatana> I woke up early, then fell asleep
[20:05:06] <yoshokatana> it's 15:05 here
[20:05:24] <Bronzdragon> wait, really?
[20:05:26] <Bronzdragon> Hmmm, odd
[20:05:34] <Bronzdragon> Oh, I see...
[20:05:44] <Bronzdragon> Your client is all "I don't do timezones >=("
[20:05:52] <yoshokatana> hm?
[20:06:08] <Bronzdragon> when you type in /CTPC yoshokatana TIME, I get your current time
[20:06:17] <Bronzdragon> Well, that would be the case, but your client gives me GTM.
[20:06:24] <Bronzdragon> (Syntax may vary from client to client)
[20:06:24] <yoshokatana> ahh
[20:06:26] <yoshokatana> weird
[20:06:35] <Bronzdragon> Eh, *shrug*.
[20:06:54] <Bronzdragon> It's not defined in the IRC protocol (thus CTCP), so it's correct behavior
[20:10:12] <yoshokatana> "we bribed our guide to get machine guns, and now we're going to hunt radioactive wild boar"
[20:10:32] <yoshokatana> sometimes vice documentaries are kind of awesome
[20:10:37] <Bronzdragon> Sounds like last Saterday.
[21:00:48] <aria> You know what's pretty good?
[21:00:52] <aria> Hokuto no Ken is pretty good.
[21:01:06] <Bronzdragon> A-TATATATATATATA!
[21:01:33] <Bronzdragon> Omae Wa Shindeiru
[21:01:46] <aria> AbJAaaa
[21:02:34] <Bronzdragon> ... Oh noes, I forgot "mo"
[21:02:57] <aria> That happens
[21:03:11] <Bronzdragon> I accidentaly the grammar word!
[21:03:16] <aria> FANSUBBERS http://youtu.be
[21:03:48] <Bronzdragon> What?
[21:03:52] <Bronzdragon> It's in french!
[21:04:00] <aria> Also 3 times.
[21:04:11] <aria> And giant font
[21:04:14] <Bronzdragon> It's in French only once
[21:04:16] <aria> also animted
[21:04:24] <Bronzdragon> And the giant bottom font is in the original, I think.
[21:04:38] <aria> The non-animted is original
[21:04:43] <Bronzdragon> Yes.
[21:04:48] <Bronzdragon> So they only added 2 lines...
[21:04:53] <Bronzdragon> Which is, granted, twice as many.
[21:05:02] <Bronzdragon> Also, why don't they translate the English?
[21:06:16] <Bronzdragon> So... I removed Thunderbird just now, and it had to remove extra packages, which is fine
[21:06:29] <Bronzdragon> But why does it have to remove the English Language pack for Thunderbird?
[21:06:41] <Bronzdragon> I mean, I know i'd LIKE it gone, but why do I /HAVE/ to remove it?
[21:06:57] <aria> Because Ubuntu
[21:06:58] <Robobuntoo> oo-BOON-too!
[21:07:04] <aria> You can probably tell it to ignore that
[21:07:37] <Bronzdragon> ... I still have evolution
[21:10:36] <Bronzdragon> I fixed it!
[21:10:45] <Bronzdragon> Now my email button doesn't summon email clients anymore! Yaaay
[21:10:56] <aria> Why do you not want email clients?
[21:11:03] <spacejam> ^
[21:11:06] <Bronzdragon> Because I use Gmail exclusivly
[21:11:15] <Bronzdragon> And I could set up an email client, but that's effort
[21:11:26] <Bronzdragon> And they take space, and sometimes, they pop up and annoy me
[21:11:41] <Bronzdragon> (such as when I click a date, and it goes "DO YOU WANT TO ADD IT TO YOUR CALENDAR?"
[21:11:44] <Bronzdragon> )
[21:11:48] <spacejam> some browsers let you make the email button summon gmail
[21:12:02] <Bronzdragon> Ah, but it's not when I press a mailto: link...
[21:12:13] <Bronzdragon> it's when I press the email button on my keyboard
[21:12:20] <Bronzdragon> Which doesn't open Gmail
[21:12:26] <spacejam> most keyboards let you make the email button summon gmail
[21:12:27] <aria> Gnome let's you set that to be gmail.
[21:12:33] <spacejam> ^
[21:12:36] <Bronzdragon> Did I mention lazy?
[21:12:46] <aria> "So I removed all my clients!"
[21:12:52] <Bronzdragon> And I still don't need Thunderbird/Evolution
[21:13:01] <Bronzdragon> yes, that's less clicks, and I don't have to google anything
[21:13:16] <spacejam> so not less clicks.
[21:13:23] <aria> Well...
[21:13:37] <aria> "packagemanager remove thunderbird evolution"
[21:13:41] <aria> is no clicks
[21:13:45] <spacejam> true
[21:13:52] <Bronzdragon> Is it less than 3 clicks per email client?
[21:13:58] <Bronzdragon> Because Ubuntu software centre
[21:13:58] <Robobuntoo> oo-BOON-too!
[21:14:03] <Bronzdragon> Yes that one!
[21:14:15] <spacejam> what does your email button do now?
[21:14:17] <aria> I don't think it's 6 click to set your prefered client
[21:14:27] <aria> But I might be wrong.
[21:14:35] <Bronzdragon> .... well, yes, but I also have to type a lot
[21:14:51] <Bronzdragon> I have to type less with software centre
[21:15:03] <spacejam> are you trying to minimize clicking, or typing?
[21:15:33] <Bronzdragon> Time.
[21:15:38] <Bronzdragon> I'm trying to minimize time.
[21:15:44] <Bronzdragon> Which is why I'm so opposed to googling
[21:15:50] <Bronzdragon> that takes a good 2 minutes!
[21:16:09] <spacejam> what did you do with that extra 2 minutes?
[21:16:31] <Bronzdragon> Complain about uninstalling email clients
[21:16:35] <Bronzdragon> To you guys
[21:18:34] <aria> ...That's fair
[21:18:40] <aria> couldn't have done that with googling.
[21:19:24] <Bronzdragon> =P
[21:32:24] <aria> Know what Sony should do to make it up to me how lousy Daniel Craig is?
[21:32:34] <aria> have Golgo 13 be the next Bond
[21:32:46] <Bronzdragon> ...
[21:32:51] <Bronzdragon> ...
[21:32:51] <aria> (Drawn version in a live action movie I mean)
[21:32:53] <Bronzdragon> !!!
[21:34:07] <aria> Then it would also make sense that he has goldy aim while everyone else in the movie behave as if in CoD
