[16:11:49] <Bronzdragon> Hello Mr. Bot
[16:12:15] <woodchuck> why Ireland?
[16:12:26] <Bronzdragon> Because that's where I'll live shortly
[16:12:36] <Bronzdragon> I could take the PC with me on the plane...

[16:13:00] <woodchuck> how long?
[16:15:57] <Bronzdragon> 'sup apreche
[16:16:05] <Bronzdragon> And for aproximatly a year
[16:16:17] <Bronzdragon> After which I'm not sure what will happen, I haven't planned that far ahead
[16:16:24] <Bronzdragon> If I like it, I'll stay, if I hate it, I'll not stay.
[16:17:58] <woodchuck> DHL might be affordable in your situation.
[16:18:36] <Bronzdragon> I looked into that
[16:18:53] <Bronzdragon> My case is too big (by ~1.5 inch) to fit into the standard package size
[16:19:05] <Bronzdragon> I can ship some parts/stuff for ~35 euro
[16:19:18] <Bronzdragon> (~45 USD)
[16:22:41] <Bronzdragon> My current plan is to take my desktop, take all the parts out, stuff that all in my Carry-on bag, take the empty case, stuff it with towels and pants, and add 2 screens, and chuck that in a rolly bag and check it in.
[16:22:53] <Bronzdragon> Flawless plan, I think!
[16:30:17] <apreche> Why not ask the BYOPC people how they do it?
[16:31:35] <Bronzdragon> I have no idea who BYOPC is, and a google search of the name does not show anything particuarly revealing
[16:32:05] <apreche> bring your own PC
[16:32:10] <Bronzdragon> ...oh
[16:32:11] <apreche> people who bring their PCs to conventions/LAN parties
[16:32:27] <Bronzdragon> Well, in the Americas, you'd usually put it in a car and drive there
[16:32:38] <Bronzdragon> Which, granted, I could do, if I owned a car.
[16:32:53] <Bronzdragon> In fact, that's how I would do it. Unfortunately, I do not own a car.
[16:33:08] <Bronzdragon> This wouldn't be a problem if airplane companies didn't suck...
[16:33:16] <Bronzdragon> but I know how they deal with luggage.

[17:49:08] <Bronzdragon> Hey Neito
[17:49:15] <Bronzdragon> HEY CYBYLT
[17:49:33] <Cybylt> Hello Bronz
[17:49:47] <Bronzdragon> How is you?
[17:50:49] <Bronzdragon> I need to ask you something, are you listening?
[17:51:06] <Cybylt> It's going good, I started reading Stell Ball Run. And sure, go ahead
[17:51:44] <Bronzdragon> Right, so, y'know those kids in supermarkets who put stuff in the store?
[17:51:45] -!- aria has quit [Ping timeout]
[17:51:47] <Bronzdragon> What is their job title?
[17:52:21] <Cybylt> The people who stock the shelves?
[17:52:24] <Bronzdragon> yes?
[17:52:38] <Bronzdragon> Also, Steel Ball Run has Jojo?
[17:53:08] <Bronzdragon> Ah, so it IS part of the jojo cannon
[17:53:09] <Cybylt> Depends on the store, sometimes they're just called stockers other times it's something like Inventory Manager to make lower end employees feel good
[17:53:21] <Cybylt> Steel Ball Run is JoJo part 6
[17:53:27] <Bronzdragon> ... Well, considering I'm filling out my resume
[17:53:33] <Bronzdragon> (Wikipedia says it's part 7)
[17:53:53] <Cybylt> wait, right, 7
[17:53:58] <Cybylt> part 6 was Stone Ocean
[17:54:07] <Bronzdragon> You didn't miss one, good!
[17:54:23] <Cybylt> I read JoJolion since it's the most recent and got all caught up on it
[17:54:39] <Cybylt> surprisingly, the title appears to be a reference to Pygmalion
[17:54:43] -!- aria [aria!AriaDesu@AF6FB293.79544C1F.494FBC85.IP] has joined #geeknights
[17:55:26] <Cybylt> You heard about that "Hawkeye Initiative" thing? Where people replace the weird lady poses in marvel comics with Hawkeye?
[17:55:53] <Cybylt> I think JoJo's is waaaaaayyyyyy ahead of them in putting men in awkward, vaguely sexual poses
[17:56:01] <Cybylt> http://pds4.egloos.com
[17:56:06] <Cybylt> Especially Steel Ball Run
[17:56:14] <Cybylt> http://2.bp.blogspot.com
[17:56:25] <Cybylt> http://www.citymanga.com
[17:57:00] <Cybylt> It makes some sense in context, I guess... what with Johnny Joestar being a paraplegic
[17:57:00] <Bronzdragon> I agree
[17:59:18] <Cybylt> I also learned JoJo's is ridiculously popular in France
[17:59:26] <Cybylt> as in, it's had exhibits in the louvre
[17:59:55] <Cybylt> http://24.media.tumblr.com
[18:00:02] <Cybylt> this was the response to the death of a close friend
[18:00:26] <Bronzdragon> ... Jojo's friend, right?
[18:00:31] <Bronzdragon> Not like... yours?
[18:00:47] <Cybylt> Ceasar's friend
[18:00:55] <Cybylt> Ceasar is the guy doing jazz hands
[18:01:14] <Cybylt> http://bunbunmaru.com
[18:01:18] <Cybylt> some context
[18:01:40] <Bronzdragon> Context, you say?
[18:01:52] <Bronzdragon> ...
[18:01:55] <Bronzdragon> This doesn't make more sense.
[18:02:08] <Cybylt> nope, not really
[18:02:29] <Cybylt> also, hair in this series is pretty weird in genereal, but I think Norisuke from JoJolion wins

[18:02:32] <Robobuntoo> You can't characters ten 166425s!

[18:05:59] <yoshokatana> hullo
[18:06:25] <yoshokatana> I woke up early, started reading reddit in bed, then fell back asleep
[18:06:27] <yoshokatana> now it's 2pm
[18:07:06] <yoshokatana> but it's a beautiful day out and I lit some incense and opened my window, so the air in my room smells very fresh (with just a hint of incense)
[18:10:18] <Bronzdragon> I see.
[18:10:44] <Cybylt> I live in california, the air always smells vaguely of weed
[18:10:56] <Cybylt> unless the ocean breeze is coming in
[18:39:47] <Cybylt> PSN gave me $20, so I thought it was enough of a discount to buy Metal Gear Rising
[18:40:44] <Bronzdragon> Fast karate is streaming Dark Souls
[18:40:49] <Bronzdragon> You of course don't care at all
[18:40:50] <Bronzdragon> http://www.twitch.tv
[18:41:26] <Cybylt> Scabs?
[18:41:39] <Cybylt> thought I heard him
[18:46:46] <Apsup> Why is my internet slow and sluggish?
[18:47:17] <Bronzdragon> Because there's a fat person sitting on a cable down the line.

[22:02:18] <yoshokatana> want to play some backgammon?
[22:02:56] <Bronzdragon> You still haven't?
[22:03:21] <yoshokatana> no, he/she didn't come online yesterday :-(
[22:03:29] <Bronzdragon> >=(
[22:04:10] <woodchuck> he was at b-side, i can play now.
[22:04:20] <yoshokatana> ok
[22:05:12] <yoshokatana> http://www.kongregate.com
[22:05:36] <Bronzdragon> You should really use Yahoo
[22:05:39] <Bronzdragon> It's a LOT better.
[22:06:00] <woodchuck> do you have yahoo still existes?
[22:06:17] <Bronzdragon> Those words do not flow
[22:06:20] <yoshokatana> eh, this one works fine, though we have to do the doubling ourselves
[22:06:25] <yoshokatana> also, what Bronzdragon said
[22:06:34] <yoshokatana> I made a game on this, called Woodchuck
[22:06:37] <yoshokatana> pass: frcf
[22:07:10] <woodchuck> i was in the middle of something; i don't know.
[22:07:33] <yoshokatana> ?
[22:08:01] <yoshokatana> woodchuck: you joining?
[22:08:02] <Bronzdragon> Stop being distracted, you're not gonna win if you're this confused.
[22:08:25] <woodchuck> i already lost my last 2 games.
[22:08:40] <Bronzdragon> Don't worry, Yosh also sucks
[22:09:16] <woodchuck> I twited my ankle lat night.
[22:09:32] <yoshokatana> thanks for the vote of confidence, Bronzdragon :p
[22:10:07] <woodchuck> I twisted it so bat that while I was limping the bartender cut me off.
[22:10:07] <Bronzdragon> ... that's fair, woodchuck
[22:10:10] <Bronzdragon> You're gonna lose
[22:11:47] <woodchuck> But I wasn't drunk I was in pain; the peeps around me had to get beers for me.
[22:12:14] <Bronzdragon> So you were being lazy?
[22:12:22] <Bronzdragon> Sounds like a pretty good situation.
[22:13:00] <yoshokatana> I'm getting really crappy rolls
[22:13:45] <Bronzdragon> This is what Backgammon is all about.
[22:13:49] <yoshokatana> mhmm
[22:13:58] <Bronzdragon> (If I'm distracing, do say so)
[22:14:04] <yoshokatana> (no worries)
[22:15:40] <yoshokatana> I need to say a prayer to the god of double-fours
[22:15:43] <woodchuck> i want beer
[22:16:03] <Bronzdragon> They're in the same pantheon as the tetris gods, right?
[22:16:17] <yoshokatana> pretty much
[22:17:06] <woodchuck> i was getting so many jump at the begginhg.
[22:17:40] <woodchuck> this game fucking hates me
[22:17:42] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[22:17:58] <Bronzdragon> Luckily, we all love you
[22:18:10] <yoshokatana> I double, do you accept?
[22:18:37] <woodchuck> double what?
[22:18:44] <yoshokatana> the doubling cube
[22:18:54] <yoshokatana> yes or no?
[22:18:59] <Bronzdragon> He's doubling, so you play for double points, if you don't accept you instantly lose
[22:19:04] <yoshokatana> goddamnit
[22:19:06] <Bronzdragon> You're on a timer, so hurry up, woodchuck!
[22:19:07] <Bronzdragon> Awww
[22:19:16] <yoshokatana> you need to either accept or not, and you didn't do it in time
[22:19:30] <Bronzdragon> This is why you use Yahoo =P
[22:19:38] <yoshokatana> Bronzdragon: link?
[22:19:39] <Cybylt> there's a guy in Steel Ball Run who can outrun horses on foot, and apparently this is historically accurate
[22:19:47] <woodchuck> there is no doubleing cube; the game does it atomaticly if you want to or not.
[22:19:48] <yoshokatana> also, does it use the doubling cube, or is that still manual?
[22:19:49] <Bronzdragon> http://games.yahoo.com
[22:20:05] <yoshokatana> woodchuck: that's not how the doubling cube works
[22:20:32] <woodchuck> how is it suppose to work then?
[22:20:33] <yoshokatana> Bronzdragon: is it "backgammon" or "backgammon quick play"?
[22:20:47] <Bronzdragon> The one that says Yahoon on it
[22:20:52] <Bronzdragon> So I think Backgammon
[22:22:21] <yoshokatana> ugh, you need an account to play
[22:22:32] <woodchuck> i won't let me log in.
[22:22:39] <yoshokatana> woodchuck: the doubling cube can be used at the beginning of your turn (if nobody has used it yet)
[22:22:50] <yoshokatana> it makes the game worth 2^n
[22:23:07] <yoshokatana> (so, first time you double it's worth 2^1, second time is 2^2, etc)
[22:23:39] <yoshokatana> if the doubling cube has been used, the person who DIDN'T double can use it again, and it switches back and forth
[22:24:09] <yoshokatana> when it's used, the other player has to either accept the double or decline (and lose the game at the last amount the doubling cube was on)
[22:24:14] <yoshokatana> so, when I doubled:
[22:24:35] <yoshokatana> if you agreed, the game would be worth 2 (if neither of us got a gammon or backgammon)
[22:24:46] <yoshokatana> if you declined, I would get one point and the game would be over
[22:24:52] <yoshokatana> understand?
[22:25:11] <woodchuck> I get it. about.com say it adds stratagy.
[22:25:17] <yoshokatana> woodchuck: http://www.kongregate.com
[22:25:25] <yoshokatana> game name is game2, pass: frcf
[22:35:41] <woodchuck> finnaly. a win
[22:35:49] <yoshokatana> match is now 1 - 0 woodchuck
[22:36:06] <yoshokatana> created game3
[22:36:08] <yoshokatana> same pass
[22:36:43] <woodchuck> did I win 2 points that game, or was everone cheating me on my games?
[22:36:55] <yoshokatana> no, you won 1 point
[22:37:18] <yoshokatana> 2 points would either be doubling cubed or gammoned
[22:37:23] <yoshokatana> 3 points would be backgammon
[22:37:35] <woodchuck> everyone was telling me that be first to place was a point; I knew they were lying.
[22:37:45] <yoshokatana> no
[22:38:48] <woodchuck> but this has no doublling cube.
[22:39:00] <yoshokatana> yeah, we're doubling manually
[22:39:11] <yoshokatana> remember when I said "I move to double, do you accept?"
[22:39:13] <yoshokatana> that's what that was
[22:40:16] <woodchuck> but my last to matches we nevered talked; if they doubled the was no way for me to respond.
[22:40:33] <yoshokatana> well, then you did it wrong

[22:41:50] <woodchuck> thats nothing new.
[22:41:55] <Bronzdragon> Scott was pretty explicit in his doubling cube rules
[22:43:10] <woodchuck> I never read the manuel.
[22:43:31] <yoshokatana> there's your problem right there
[22:45:29] <woodchuck> It said that we had to agree on the rules; I don't mide doulbling with you since we are chatting though.
[22:45:43] <yoshokatana> hm?
[22:47:13] <woodchuck> I have a tornado warning.
[22:50:17] <woodchuck> double?
[22:50:24] <yoshokatana> I refuse
[22:50:32] <yoshokatana> match is now 2 - 0 woodchuck
[22:50:53] <woodchuck> I get it now. Thanks.
[22:51:29] <woodchuck> i entered game 3 again.
[22:51:50] <yoshokatana> joining
[22:59:32] <yoshokatana> I move to double
[22:59:35] <yoshokatana> do you accept?
[22:59:51] <woodchuck> no
[22:59:56] <yoshokatana> ok
[23:00:12] <yoshokatana> match is now 2 - 1 woodchuck
[23:00:38] <woodchuck> i sat down.
[23:01:12] <woodchuck> I move to double.
[23:01:19] <yoshokatana> I accept
[23:01:29] <yoshokatana> game is now at 2pts
[23:06:38] <woodchuck> I move to double.
[23:06:53] <yoshokatana> negative
[23:07:01] <yoshokatana> you can't double right now
[23:07:06] <yoshokatana> since you doubled the first time
[23:07:39] <woodchuck> okay
[23:19:20] <yoshokatana> match is 3 - 2 yoshokatana
[23:25:16] <woodchuck> I need to pause the game; there is a funnel cloud starting to touch down.
[23:25:24] <yoshokatana> it doesn't pause
[23:25:52] <yoshokatana> match is now 4 - 1 yoshokatana
[23:26:00] <yoshokatana> crawford rule is in effect
[23:26:11] <Bronzdragon> Wait, woodchuck lost a point?
[23:26:16] <yoshokatana> (sorry, match is 4 - 2)
[23:26:17] <Bronzdragon> Man, you beat him HARD
[23:26:20] <yoshokatana> haha
[23:26:55] <yoshokatana> woodchuck: when can we resume?
[23:28:38] <yoshokatana> if woodchuck gets transported to Oz, do I win the match?
[23:44:44] <yoshokatana> well, I'm going to make some dinner
