[00:02:55] <Bronzdragon> ... I see, Black Jack has to fix his tiny legs, eh?
[00:03:32] <aria> What did you do, why did you hang up?
[00:03:48] <Bronzdragon> ...
[00:03:52] <Bronzdragon> I was talking to you!
[00:03:57] <Bronzdragon> About Black jack!
[00:26:36] <GauntletWizard> Anybody hasn't played Spacechem yet?
[00:28:45] <Bronzdragon> Ai!
[00:30:25] <GauntletWizard> 30E7-A37F-6DC0-66A7
[00:31:49] <Bronzdragon> Steam?
[00:32:52] <GauntletWizard> yeah
[00:33:18] <Bronzdragon> I clicked the buttons!
[00:33:41] <aria> And it's for Linux even =O
[00:33:42] <Bronzdragon> Thanks man!
[00:33:47] <Bronzdragon> Really nice of you.
[00:34:05] <spacejam> haha
[00:34:13] <GauntletWizard> It is one of my favorite games
[00:34:17] <GauntletWizard> I have a million copies
[00:34:28] <GauntletWizard> (I actually just got that one, and I've got 3-4 in the steam bank)
[00:34:32] <spacejam> nice, i haven't finished it yet
[00:34:34] <GauntletWizard> oh, and I'm also friends with the creator
[00:34:54] <GauntletWizard> so, yeah, enjoy :)
[00:36:00] <Bronzdragon> You've got everything, GW?
[00:36:31] <Bronzdragon> Like a boss.
[00:38:47] <GauntletWizard> I do have everything
[00:38:48] <GauntletWizard> it is sad
[00:38:56] <GauntletWizard> I have no use for everything, and yet I have it
[00:39:35] <Bronzdragon> Man, if I had an everything, I'd use the crap out of it
[00:50:39] <spacejam> And yet people spend so much time doing the nothing
[00:56:26] <aria> I have this problem
[00:56:30] <aria> I save good things
[00:56:37] <aria> and instead do nothing
[00:56:46] <aria> And have too many good things to get around to them.
[00:57:12] <aria> Often because consoles, and consoles are effort
[01:54:46] -!- Bronzdragon has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
[02:02:41] <aria> So what are people up to?
[02:10:10] <woodchuck> cleaning
[02:10:32] <aria> What kind of cleaning?
[02:10:40] <aria> Are your things nice and sparkly?
[02:32:00] <aria> http://www.escapistmagazine.com
[02:32:13] <aria> The end is excellent
[02:36:05] <Apsup> I really should remember to put Loading Redy Run to my rss feeds to I don't forget to watch it. Also I maybe should sleep.
[02:36:19] <aria> I also should sleep
[02:36:27] <aria> But I woke up at 17:30.
[02:37:29] <woodchuck> Strip clubs are more important than schools.

[02:38:05] <aria> Assassin's Creed would've been cooler if it wasn't about some kid experiencing cool people
[02:38:15] -!- woodchuck_ has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[02:38:17] <aria> Rather than just it being set in the time periods its set in
[02:47:26] <aria> Does Steam support choose your own price?
[02:47:41] <Cybylt> I think the parts with Desmond were built to justify the HUD more than anything
[02:48:07] <Cybylt> then the second game comes along and they're like "Oh shit we're supposed to make a story for this guy too"
[02:48:08] <Robobuntoo> ...
[02:48:17] <aria> I wanna have my game not ask you to pay until you launch the game the second time, and then let you choose 0
[02:48:27] <aria> But I'm not sure if it can go through the Steam backend
[02:48:46] <aria> works just fine through the Ubuntu store/Amazon though
[02:48:47] <Robobuntoo> oo-BOON-too!
[02:48:48] <Cybylt> I'm not sure how steam runs things
[02:49:11] <aria> But every game has a HUD
[02:49:16] <aria> you don't need to justify that
[02:50:10] <Cybylt> I dunno, AC's HUD is really scifi themed considering the actual gameplay settings
[02:50:46] <aria> Sure, but it doesn't need to be.
[02:51:09] <Cybylt> Not really, but it suits it
[02:54:45] -!- Apsup has quit [Quit: leaving]
[02:56:08] <Cybylt> Valkyria Chronicles 2 and 3 need to be upgraded to VC1's graphics on a PS3 collection release
[02:58:18] <Cybylt> Though I guess that also means they'd have to bother giving each character a unique model in VC2
[02:58:37] <aria> Probably are
[02:58:39] <aria> less effort.
[02:58:50] <Cybylt> they kinda half assed it and simplified it to male body and female body
[02:58:55] <aria> Although meshes and textures I doubt will be changed
[03:00:31] <Cybylt> http://www.pixelsocks.com
[03:00:34] <Cybylt> http://media1.gameinformer.com
[03:01:21] <Cybylt> 1 vs 2, though 2 actually looks pretty good for a first attempt
[03:02:18] <Cybylt> finer textures like hair are jaggy as hell however
[03:03:51] <Cybylt> spiky hair at least
[03:05:19] -!- MrBRAD [MrBRAD!whatsthis@hide-4FE94564.dyn.iinet.net.au] has joined #geeknights
[03:08:15] <aria> Chances are they can just replace references to those modesl with the VC1 models
[03:08:52] <aria> But if there is a lot of new content made, then they won't bother recreating that in high detail
[03:09:17] <aria> If they're really awesome, they'd update what can be updated and leave what can't as PSP graphics
[03:09:37] <aria> But that would do bad with press and review scores
[03:09:45] <aria> Community wouldn't complain though
[03:10:35] <Cybylt> uhhh... couple dozen weapons, new tanks and enemies, several new classes with gear that wasn't even in 1
[03:10:46] <Cybylt> entirely changed levels to accomodate the psp style
[03:11:12] <Cybylt> they went from single big areas and fielding 10-14 troops to several small zones and fielding up to 5 in one, or 6 or 7 total
[03:11:13] <Robobuntoo> You can't fielding ten 14s!
[03:11:13] <aria> Character classes and levels is code
[03:11:34] <Cybylt> I mean the textures to the equipment that came along with them
[03:11:48] <aria> Sure, that equipment would have to look bad or take effort
[03:11:58] <aria> though it would be aliased and shaded properly
[03:12:35] <aria> But a lot of stuff from the first game can easily replace some of the cruder things on the PSP games
[03:12:48] <aria> wouldn't be aliased*
[03:12:59] <aria> it would be shaded properly*
[03:13:11] <aria> I was gonna say anti-aliased, then it would've made sense =P
[03:14:44] <Cybylt> well I'm not sure they could just copy stuff from the first game so well either, even the basic shared classes used different uniforms
[03:15:01] <aria> Oh?
[03:15:19] <aria> I haven't even seen 2 and 3, I just assumed it was mostly the same characters and graphics
[03:15:27] <aria> Probably won't be worth the effort then
[03:16:29] <Cybylt> Nope
[03:16:35] <Cybylt> in 1 you're militia
[03:16:49] <Cybylt> in 2 you're cadets of the main army officer academy
[03:17:53] <Cybylt> in 3 you're "The Nameless" Squard 422 who have a separate uniform of the militia and main army since they're a cannon fodder troop of thieves, whores, spies on the run and draft dodgers
[03:19:15] <Cybylt> oh, and people brought under false charges of treason such as the main character
[03:19:15] <aria> But aren't all the uniforms the same mesh with different fatigues?
[03:20:49] <Cybylt> Nope, especially in 2 and 3 where the look mildly changes as you take advanced classes while in 1 it was just a gear upgrade at a certain level
[03:24:22] <Cybylt> also just about every playable character in 1 and 3 have a personalized uniform
[03:27:11] <aria> GauntletWizard: Do you have any secret information on what display server the Steambox will use?

[03:40:53] <aria> BREAKING NEWS!!! also seems to get YouTube views
[03:43:09] <aria> "Top 10 Breaking News' NoScope Gamer Girls Sexy Ass" would probably work well. Maybe also "Burning iPad 2013 cut in half"
[03:43:09] <Robobuntoo> You can't Top ten Breakings!
[04:02:04] <aria> So in New York, since murder is legal as long as it's on your property, can't you get around the problem of being liable if a kid drowns in your pool to just say you drowned him on purpose because he was trasspassing?
[04:04:46] <aria> "if"* not "to"
[04:09:55] -!- spacejam [spacejam!spacejam@hide-C81D949.nyc.res.rr.com] has parted #geeknights
[04:35:48] <Cybylt> no
[04:36:42] <Cybylt> Unless you have enough witnesses to testify it and claim that the child was a danger to the owner of the property and everyone else at the scene
[04:37:30] <Cybylt> And trespasser killing in defense is much harder to prove than you'd think
[04:38:32] <aria> It needs to be defense?
[04:38:39] <Cybylt> Yes
[04:38:45] <aria> If someone steps on your property to steal your flowers, that not good enough?
[04:39:02] <Cybylt> Not really
[04:39:06] <aria> I mean, I don't think it should be, but portraylal in media makes it seem like it is
[04:39:07] <Cybylt> except maybe in the south
[04:39:17] <Cybylt> crazy bastard rednecks
[04:39:35] <Cybylt> but it is supposed to be in self defense
[04:39:58] <Cybylt> the trespassing in it pretty much means they pulled a break and enter and you feel in danger
[04:40:40] <Cybylt> on a related note, I think the defense used in the anti-gun control arguments are hilariously retarded
[04:40:53] <Cybylt> "What if someone snuck into your house to kill you and your family"
[04:41:30] <Cybylt> then it's 99% likely somebody I know who planned this long in advance and not anarchy taking over because they TUK UR GUNZ
[04:41:32] <athenian200> Isn't that just proof that they shouldn't be armed with guns?
[04:41:40] <Cybylt> right?
[04:41:51] <aria> ... =P
[04:41:54] <Cybylt> "Well criminals will still find a way to get to them"
[04:42:02] <aria> I don't think anyone has ever broken in in my house to kill me
[04:42:11] <aria> And our military doesn't even have guns.
[04:42:13] <Cybylt> Yes, dedicated criminals with strict intentions and connections
[04:42:33] <Cybylt> not a teenager who one day snaps and raids dad's hunting stash
[04:42:54] <Cybylt> which is just about every goddamn case of a mass shooting
[04:43:15] <Cybylt> if the everyman didn't have the means to attain firearms that shit wouldn't happen
[04:43:15] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[04:47:32] <aria> Robobuntoo is apperantly against gun control =P
[04:49:01] <Cybylt> I guess so
[04:49:16] <athenian200> Roboredneck?
[04:50:39] <aria> "Samus Iran"
[04:50:42] <aria> =p
[04:51:13] <aria> The best part of it is that the guy said "My favorite video game protagonist, Samus Iran"
[04:51:41] <Cybylt> You haven't heard of Samus Iran?
[04:52:13] <Cybylt> It's pretty much Samus Aran but her "zero suit" is a shawl over her armor
[04:52:29] <athenian200> LOL.
[04:53:56] <aria> Is that from Iefterburner?
[04:54:06] <aria> ...It took a while to think of a game that started with A.. =P
[04:55:12] <Cybylt> Armored Core, the best game that starts with A
[04:55:38] <aria> Oh yeah..
[04:55:46] <aria> Irmored Core..
[04:56:15] <Cybylt> what about Ississan's Creed?
[04:56:52] <Cybylt> Inirchy Reagns?
[04:57:15] <Cybylt> Imuricin's McGee's Ilace
[04:57:34] <Cybylt> damn, misspelled that one
[04:57:40] <Cybylt> Imuracin"
[04:59:38] <Cybylt> I can't think of anything else
[04:59:53] <aria> Well you did better than me =P

[05:37:10] <Cybylt> As much as I dislike the initial highschool anime bs setting they tried to push on Valkyria 2 I'm liking the story
[05:37:42] <Cybylt> and how every playable character gets personal scenes and missions that unlock new perks and traits by using them
[05:37:52] <aria> http://answers.ea.com
[05:40:35] <Cybylt> That is an absolutely retarded priority system
[05:45:31] <aria> And it STILL lags!
[05:49:31] <Cybylt> So the answer to the problem is all cities need to be one massive road
[05:49:53] <Cybylt> and have a population of 20-ish
[05:50:00] <aria> Except they don't let you have cities longer than like 2 meters
[05:50:26] <Cybylt> one roas
[05:50:30] <Cybylt> road*
[05:51:00] <aria> I guess the road can be a spiral towards the middle
[05:51:02] <Cybylt> maybe just one big square outline with each corner being dedicated to a single building type
[05:51:13] <Cybylt> No, a spiral is too complicated for the AI
[05:52:30] <aria> Im watching this lady talk about King of the Nerds
[05:52:40] <aria> It's better than the actual show
[05:53:32] <aria> She says fuck a lot.

[19:45:30] <aria> It was just sorta a movie..
[19:46:04] <aria> I saw it without having ever heard of it until the moment I bought tickets, it was started as we got into the cinema, movie we wanted to see wasn't on for another 30 minutes
[19:46:13] <aria> And I thought it was alright
[19:46:19] <GauntletWizard> you should read the book

[20:24:13] <GauntletWizard> I think this is my new favorite quote
[20:24:35] <Bronzdragon> yap
[20:31:49] <Apsup> I just realized. Tribies can be seen as a subset of Fedoras, which apparently now are subset of Furries. So what are Tribys in relation to Furries.
[20:31:52] <Apsup> ?
[20:31:57] <Apsup> Sub-subset?
[20:32:22] <Bronzdragon> a sub-sub set is also a subset
[21:55:03] <nine> Fedora crowd?
[21:55:37] <nine> I've no fucking clue what Rym is on about in that post, but I agree with the statements.

[22:13:44] <Bronzdragon> Hey Cybylt
[22:13:51] <Cybylt> Hello
[22:13:53] <Bronzdragon> Tell us, what is Veronica Mars.
[22:14:15] <Cybylt> no idea
[22:14:41] <aria> 1.6 million in a few hours on Kickstarter
[22:15:05] <aria> Wikipedia says that it is neo teen drama noir
[22:15:12] <Cybylt> then it's probably a small game company making a comeback
[22:15:26] <Cybylt> Brick?
[22:15:32] <Cybylt> that was a good movie
[22:15:54] <aria> It's gonna be a movie
[22:16:02] <Bronzdragon> It used to be a show of some kind
[22:16:04] <aria> the old IP is a TV series I believe
[22:16:06] <Bronzdragon> "Some years ago"
[22:16:07] <aria> or internet series maybe
[22:16:25] <Cybylt> I dunno
[22:16:33] <Cybylt> but neo teen drama noir is totally Brick
[22:16:37] <Cybylt> which you should watch
[22:22:43] <aria> This ST episode we're watching is called 22 Shades of Gray
[22:23:30] <Bronzdragon> You're cheating!
[22:23:44] <Bronzdragon> You're including the episode title
[22:24:12] <aria> Yes.
[22:30:17] <Cybylt> In my Fast Karate background noise binge I just got to
[22:30:22] <Cybylt> WE NAME HIM HANABI
[22:30:26] <Cybylt> HE RIVE WITH HONOAH
[22:30:31] <Cybylt> HE BROW UP
[22:30:48] <nine> HE GON BROW UP!
[22:30:49] <aria> =)
[22:30:59] <nine> Cybylt, do you know what "Hanabi" means?
[22:31:21] <Cybylt> nope
[22:31:36] <nine> Hidden joke, it means fireworks.
[22:31:48] <Cybylt> hahaha
[22:31:49] <Cybylt> nice
[22:33:05] <Cybylt> I was really weird hearing them talk about Mass Effect 1 and the unlikeliness of a sequel because Bioware is a small company and how TOR would drain all their resources
[22:33:32] <Cybylt> or how TOR didn't even have a name other than "Bioware's star wars mmo"
[22:36:43] <nine> Hehehe.
[22:36:51] <nine> Makes you realize how old Fast Karate is.
[22:36:57] <Cybylt> yeah
[22:37:51] <aria> I still don't get how they liked ME1 on Xbox. It runs at like 2FPS
[22:38:09] <Cybylt> I've been playing it on xbox and it runs just fine
[22:38:10] <aria> I mean..
[22:38:20] <aria> I liked it too, until I tried doing side stuff
[22:38:29] <aria> But I assume everyone does the sidestuff
[22:38:41] <Cybylt> I am, pretty much all of it
[22:38:52] <Cybylt> I love driving the mako, which apparently makes me in the minority
[22:39:08] <Bronzdragon> I also liked the Mako
[22:39:11] <Bronzdragon> Somewhat...
[22:39:19] <Cybylt> I like driving up 80 degree inclines while the engine makes a noise that I only assume is the mechanical language for "FUCK GRAVITY"
[22:39:21] <Robobuntoo> ...
[22:39:22] <Bronzdragon> I didn't like the Mako levels, but the mako itself was cool
[22:39:30] <aria> Did you try moving the camera? Cause that's when the framerate is at it's worse. it like stops to slowly redraw the image like a old DOS game =P
[22:40:18] <Cybylt> That never happened, at least it hasn't when I've been playing. But I also turn off film grain and motion blur which may be the cause on the xbox version
[22:40:28] <Cybylt> plus they look like stupid effects to begin with
[22:41:07] <aria> I left everything at default. It's a console game, it should just run.
[22:41:22] <aria> F-Zero GX on the gamecube runs at 60FPS, and that game is much more awesome.
[22:41:49] <Cybylt> they aren't even the same genre
[22:42:06] <Bronzdragon> BAH
[22:42:11] <Bronzdragon> who needs Genres
[22:42:46] <aria> It's still awesome.
[22:43:09] <Cybylt> I'm not saying it isn't, I'm just not sure how they're comparable
[22:43:29] <aria> Well I mean..
[22:43:31] <aria> they aren't
[22:43:34] <aria> but they're both on console
[22:44:07] <nine> F-Zero X on N64 also runs at 60FPS.
[22:44:11] <nine> It's fucking boss.
[22:44:12] <Robobuntoo> ...
[22:44:22] <aria> Man I'd go so much for a new F-Zero
[22:44:34] <aria> Or just F-Zero GX in HD with the old music
[22:45:02] <aria> give*
[22:46:57] <nine> The difference between ME1 and the F-Zero franchise is that the former is focussed on HARDCORE GRAPHICS, whereas the latter demanded performance over HARDCORE GRAPHICS.
[22:47:29] <aria> Nah, it's bad programming in ME1 more so
[22:47:31] <nine> So it looks not amazing, but it still runs at 60FPS with 30 fucking hovercars racing over a track.
[22:47:35] <aria> ME2 looks better but runs just fine
[22:47:37] <aria> 30+ FPS all the time
[22:47:52] <nine> Lies.
[22:49:14] <aria> Nintendo/Sega should make a new F-Zero for PC that is just a constant race
[22:49:24] <aria> 1 giant epic stage, 512 cars
[22:49:26] <aria> online
[22:49:29] <nine> Yes.
[22:49:30] <aria> F-Zero X quality soundtrack
[22:49:37] <nine> >512
[22:49:38] <nine> SMALLTIME.
[22:49:42] <aria> =D
[22:49:46] <nine> F-Zero X quality?
[22:49:52] <aria> 2046
[22:49:53] <nine> HOW ABOUT F-ZERO X SOUNDTRACK INSTEAD?
[22:49:55] <aria> Not audio quality
[22:50:04] <aria> Yeah sure, that works too
[22:50:08] <nine> I know what you means.
[22:50:09] <aria> GX music was ok, but it wasn't X
[22:50:11] <nine> You just think stupidly.
[22:50:15] <nine> Just put the soundtrack in.
[22:50:18] <nine> Also the guitar version.
[22:50:22] <Bronzdragon> It's so hard to follow this conversation...
[22:50:29] <nine> Blame Aria.
[22:50:38] <aria> The Smash Wii F-Zero songs are better than those in X
[22:50:39] <nine> As usual shitty reading skills.
[22:50:40] <Bronzdragon> I blame you, actually.
[22:50:59] <nine> You're a fool Bronz.
[22:51:02] <Bronzdragon> You press enter multiple times, even though you are making only one statement
[22:51:14] <Bronzdragon> Meaning that you break up statements, making them hard to follow.
[22:51:40] <nine> No, that's aria's second boyfriend. The one from Denmark.
[22:51:43] <nine> He
[22:51:44] <nine> Cuts
[22:51:45] <nine> up
[22:51:46] <nine> everything
[22:51:52] <nine> .
[22:52:42] <Bronzdragon> He's worse, yes.
[22:52:50] <Bronzdragon> Wait, Aria's from 'Sweden' right?
[22:53:16] <aria> Well Tiwi is from Bergen, which is a bit <-- that way
[22:53:26] <Bronzdragon> Also ^ that way, right?
[22:53:26] <nine> Denmark all of it.
[22:53:45] <Bronzdragon> Scandinavia is a large place
[22:53:45] <nine> Also, I don't cut up sentences.
[22:53:50] <nine> I write it as dialogue.
[22:53:56] <Bronzdragon> Not sentences, no.
[22:53:56] <nine> Sadly I can't type as fast as I can speak.
[22:53:59] <nine> Gotta put that pause there.
[23:09:17] <aria> This is fucking $3700 for a 1920x1080 display https://www.wacom.com{DF740487-4401-4D44-A3DC-BE552253C0E6}
[23:09:43] <Bronzdragon> Well... it is Wacom
[23:09:57] <Bronzdragon> Your link is borked
[23:10:43] <nine> ;_;
[23:10:49] <nine> Google Reader is shutting down.
[23:10:59] <aria> ...
[23:11:01] <aria> What?
[23:11:07] <aria> No..
[23:11:08] <Bronzdragon> What?
[23:11:11] <Bronzdragon> Nooooooo!
[23:11:11] <nine> Aria, you link a fucking Wacom. It's more than just a fucking display.
[23:11:12] <aria> No...
[23:11:19] <nine> http://googlereader.blogspot.nl
[23:12:05] <aria> ...
[23:12:08] <aria> But
[23:12:09] <aria> I use Reader
[23:12:19] <aria> It's really good..
[23:12:23] <aria> T_T
[23:12:30] <Bronzdragon> Goddamnit
[23:12:44] <aria> It's a display with a touchscreen
[23:12:57] <aria> But the display part of it is very low res
[23:13:08] <aria> Also there is a non-HD version with 960 or something height
[23:13:18] <nine> 1920x1080 isn't that low res.
[23:13:57] <aria> it's actually probably 1920x1200
[23:14:00] <nine> Also, it's a bit more than a display with a touchscreen.
[23:14:04] <nine> Mostly due to patents.
[23:14:23] <Apsup> Well this sucks.
[23:14:28] <aria> It also has scrolly things and buttons, and the touchscreen is really fancy and supports a pen
[23:14:52] <aria> But for drawing, surely you want a good display.
[23:14:53] <GauntletWizard> wow, that's just getting announced?
[23:15:02] <GauntletWizard> Nobody's worked on reader for ages.
[23:15:05] <nine> >and supports a pen
[23:15:16] <nine> It's better to say it now also supports fingers.
[23:15:17] <Bronzdragon> I love google reader! =(
[23:15:21] <aria> ...You knew of this, yet did not defend our rights to a fulfilling life!?
[23:15:23] <Bronzdragon> Can't they just keep the servers up?
[23:15:26] <nine> Cintiqs are ridiculous.
[23:15:30] <aria> Why not just leave it mostly unmaintained?
[23:15:36] <Bronzdragon> ^
[23:15:44] <nine> GauntletWizard: We don't care if anyone works on Reader.
[23:15:46] <nine> It works!
[23:15:59] <Bronzdragon> yell at your boss, Gauntlet!
[23:16:29] <nine> GauntletWizard: What do you use for RSS feeds?
[23:16:49] <aria> Snapshot of Reader hosted on his laptop, of course =P
[23:17:24] <nine> He should offer us that.
[23:17:52] <nine> Is there even another online RSS reader that's usable?
[23:18:05] <Bronzdragon> Why not offline, Mr. Nine?
[23:18:27] <aria> I'm fine with offline, but reader is just straight up better
[23:18:32] <nine> Because I want to get to my feeds from different computers without having to synchronize?
[23:18:37] <Apsup> Onlinie readers are not tied to one computer.
[23:19:13] <aria> You guys should sync your home directories.
[23:19:19] <Apsup> Also something that I can easily access with smartphone would be nice. Google has this thing that there always is also android app for things, which means I've had access to my feeds literally anywhere.
[23:19:30] <nine> >Synching anything
[23:19:36] <nine> ISHIGIDDIGGYDOO.
[23:19:53] <Bronzdragon> https://www.wacom.com{DF740487-4401-4D44-A3DC-BE552253C0E6}
[23:19:58] <Bronzdragon> wait, what id that doing there?
[23:20:04] <GauntletWizard> I don't use RSS feeds, because everything that was worth using rss for is gone
[23:20:13] <Bronzdragon> Go home, URL. You're drunk.
[23:20:26] <Bronzdragon> Wait, what?
[23:20:49] <Bronzdragon> I don't understand... explain taht again, GauntletWizard.
[23:20:57] <nine> GauntletWizard: EVERY SINGLE WEBCOMIC EVER.
[23:21:27] <aria> ...Every single webcomic ever is not worth using RSS for
[23:21:37] <GauntletWizard> nine: I prefer individual pages, because most webcomic rss feeds suck
[23:21:38] <aria> Many web comics are very very bad. I know, because Bronz reads bad web comics
[23:21:59] <nine> GauntletWizard: So you manually go to every webcomic you read every day to check if there's an update?
[23:22:02] <aria> I use RSS for YouTube and podcasts, and would hate to be without it
[23:22:12] <nine> ^
[23:22:19] <nine> And a variety of blogs.
[23:22:22] <nine> And Tumblrs.
[23:22:28] <nine> Because fuck Tumblr's interface.
[23:22:47] <aria> He obviously has a script that is constantly pulling down the most up to date version of all his webcomics!
[23:22:52] <GauntletWizard> nine: I center-click a folder that opens up tabs
[23:22:54] <Bronzdragon> Are you saying that Zero punctuation is not worth watching?
[23:22:55] <aria> Fuck most websites...
[23:22:58] <Bronzdragon> Or AVGN?
[23:23:03] <nine> >center-click
[23:23:07] <Bronzdragon> Or Loading Ready Run?
[23:23:12] <nine> >still manually checking
[23:23:45] <Apsup> Why would anyone make custom script for checking webcomics when there is a fucking tool already made for that? And the tool is called rss.
[23:23:58] <Bronzdragon> If I did taht, I'd have 115 tabs.
[23:24:13] <Bronzdragon> checking 115 tabs does not sound like fun =(
[23:24:31] <nine> Seriously, <3 RSS.
[23:24:38] <nine> No need to check up on anything.
[23:24:45] <nine> Well, only 1 thing.
[23:25:23] <Bronzdragon> Yeah... ditto
[23:25:35] <Bronzdragon> I drop things that don't have RSS feeds
[23:25:42] <nine> Eeeeyup.
[23:25:44] <Bronzdragon> Because they don't have RSS, so I can't be bothered
[23:26:12] <aria> =/
[23:26:12] <nine> Great part, if there's no RSS button, just drop the URL in Google Reader and it finds the RSS feed that's usually just in the header.
[23:26:17] <aria> Well, when's Mozilla reader coming out?
[23:26:49] <nine> We'll call it PHOENIX.
[23:27:30] <aria> Not like.. wind-elemental fish?
[23:28:37] <nine> :|
[23:28:44] <nine> It's what Firefox was initially called.

[23:29:21] <nine> Dammit Derpman.
[23:29:32] <nine> Everyone tell Derpman that he's an idiot.
[23:29:36] <aria> I think GauntletWizard will really appriciate it if you tell him you don't approve of the way he's running his company

[23:30:22] <nine> >more people on Skype learn about Google Reader shutting down and go "FUCK".
[23:30:29] <Bronzdragon> GauntletWizard, being Mr. Google himself, appriciates your input and loves your oppinions.

[23:31:17] <derpman69> I NEED AN ALTERNATIVE TO GOOGLE READER, HELP!
[23:31:26] <Bronzdragon> ...
[23:31:31] <Bronzdragon> subtle
[23:31:31] <joojii> netnewswire
[23:31:51] <aria> Hrm let's see what's the first result when I google for applicable things
[23:32:00] <nine> Netnewswire?
[23:32:03] <nine> Never heard of it.
[23:32:03] <derpman69> Looks shitty.
[23:32:21] <aria> Oh, Lightread, that looks nice, it has a fancy UI and everything. What is this? Relies on Google Reader for it's backend and will not work without it!?
[23:32:25] <aria> Well gosh
[23:32:36] <nine> We should start up one of those whitehouse petitions.
[23:33:00] <nine> "Force Google to not shut down Google Reader."
[23:33:08] <nine> >NetNewsWire
[23:33:12] <nine> >first result is an App
[23:33:13] <Bronzdragon> "Take over the google reader servers"
[23:33:24] <nine> "Feed reader for Mac OS X, traditional, widescreen, and combined views, can syncronise with Google Reader."
[23:33:29] <nine> joojii: Do you even READ?
[23:33:31] <aria> We'll force them to sell Google Reader to Microsoft!
[23:33:43] <nine> Microsoft will fuck it up like they did Skype.
[23:33:51] <nine> Suddenly annoying ads everywhere.
[23:34:03] <aria> That's fine. Linux version will never be updated again
[23:34:09] <nine> :|
[23:34:12] <aria> And since it's currently the best thing available, I'm fine with that
[23:34:20] <nine> Yeah, because that's totally applicable to Windows.

[23:34:53] <Bronzdragon> RSS is so last year
[23:34:59] <Bronzdragon> Atom is where it's at, RIGHT GUYS?
[23:35:16] <GauntletWizard> http://www.youtube.com
[23:35:43] <derpman69> The only thing I want is google reader.
[23:35:47] <nine> :|
[23:35:49] <MrBRAD> I only use rss for podcasts so I don't think I'll have your problem
[23:35:55] <nine> Because really simple syndication is bad.
[23:36:06] <derpman69> I only use rss for the INTERNET.
[23:36:09] <aria> Your attempts at distracting us from your shortcommings will not succeed, GOOGLE!
[23:36:32] <aria> I only use Google Reader for all the things
[23:37:31] <derpman69> In fact, it's through Google Reader that I learned of its demise.
[23:37:50] <Bronzdragon> "Google reader"
[23:37:59] <aria> What do you expect me to do without Google Reader, Google?! Go outside?
[23:38:13] <aria> Because there is no outside in Norway. There is only snow.
[23:38:19] <aria> One can not treverse the snow
[23:38:21] <nine> Snow and deer.
[23:38:24] <nine> In Denmark.
[23:38:25] <aria> one can not dig tunnels in the snow
[23:38:29] <MrBRAD> maybe it's a ploy to make you browse around more and see ad
[23:38:37] <MrBRAD> ads
[23:38:40] <aria> One can only turn to snow among the snow
[23:38:57] <aria> Actually

[23:39:07] <nine> I won't actually be seeing more ads, MrBRAD.

[23:39:23] <MrBRAD> yeah, anyone smart has been blocking them all for years
[23:39:24] <aria> I'll simply browse less =P
[23:39:34] <nine> I don't even browse anymore.
[23:39:45] <aria> C'mon, right as Glass comes out, you're removing my only reason to use it!?
[23:39:50] <nine> I just lurk on websites I know and get links other people browsed around for and found.
[23:40:33] <Bronzdragon> Maybe...
[23:40:41] <Bronzdragon> Maybe this is google turning evil

[23:41:07] <Bronzdragon> "... pay us money now, and we'll THINK about putting it back up..."
[23:41:12] <aria> They'll give us extended beta access
[23:41:17] <aria> then Poof! It's gone!
[23:41:20] <aria> Now you gotta pay
[23:41:33] <Bronzdragon> Man, I wish it was closer to April =/

[23:45:08] <aria> Larry Page, why do you hate puppies?
[23:45:39] <aria> Can't you see those poor puppies that are on fire can't put it out fast enough unless they have a centrilized water blog spot with up to the minute updates, such as Google Reader?
[23:46:13] <Bronzdragon> I bet if you email that to Larry page, he'll just throw money at the puppies, to intensify the fire.
