[09:14:35] <Bronzdragon> PENCE
[09:14:41] <Bronzdragon> TELL ME A STORY OF GREAT STORY
[09:15:51] <pence> once upon a time, a developer woke up at 4AM to support a release at 5AM!
[09:16:57] <Bronzdragon> Sounds fun.
[09:17:16] <pence> twist ending, the story is real!
[09:17:40] <pence> it's not so bad, I probably won't have to do anything unless things go wrong
[09:17:50] <pence> and then I pretty much get to go home after lunch
[09:18:04] <Bronzdragon> Awww yis.
[09:55:51] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Aleksi@hide-B4B1B39B.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[09:57:46] <Bronzdragon> Hey Apsup
[09:58:06] <Apsup> Hello!
[10:08:05] <Bronzdragon> How's you doin'?
[10:09:33] <Apsup> Living. Nothing fancy outside of that.
[10:09:49] <Bronzdragon> Livin' is no way to live
[10:12:44] <Apsup> But it makes me feel so alive.
[10:18:22] <Bronzdragon> I'm tired
[10:18:26] <Bronzdragon> Probably from getting up early
[10:20:50] <Apsup> Remember sleep is just a substitute of caffeine.
[10:21:05] <Bronzdragon> I don't have coffee in the house... that I can drink
[11:27:20] <Apsup> Internet is acting up again. :[
[11:28:55] <Bronzdragon> Tell it to stop?
[12:30:11] <Bronzdragon> Skipped breakfast, eat cake for lunch.
[16:19:55] <apreche> pistachios, so expensive, so tasty
[16:20:07] <Bronzdragon> Hear hear!
[17:03:37] <GauntletWizard> Life, it is short and hard
[17:03:47] <GauntletWizard> Like a bodybuilding elf
[17:04:23] <Bronzdragon> More like a nymphomaniac dwarf
[17:06:19] <GauntletWizard> NYM-PHO-MAIN-EE-ACK
[17:06:57] <Bronzdragon> I'm midly surprised I spelled it correctly.
[17:07:08] <GauntletWizard> impressive
[17:07:12] <GauntletWizard> It's not a common word
[17:07:19] <Bronzdragon> I'm terrible at spelling.
[17:07:35] <Bronzdragon> I wasn't sure what form to use either, so I guessed.
[17:07:39] <GauntletWizard> I am pretty good at spelling. I had to work very hard at it, though
[17:08:14] <Bronzdragon> I try, but English isn't my first language.
[17:38:32] <GauntletWizard> Here's why I don't play MMOs: http://trenchescomic.com
[17:38:55] <apreche> You know why I don't play MMOs? I played a MUD for all of high school and had my fill.
[17:39:24] <GauntletWizard> I miss my old muds
[17:39:54] <apreche> they're still htere
[17:40:19] <Bronzdragon> The reason I don't play MMOs is because nobody made the good one yet.
[17:40:28] <GauntletWizard> Well, some part of them is
[17:40:50] <GauntletWizard> My original MUD has apparently reworked itself as a heavy-pvp game
[17:40:59] <GauntletWizard> which is so very different from what it was
[17:41:10] <apreche> mine was a pretty standard dikumud
[17:42:51] <Bronzdragon> I didn't MUD.
[17:43:02] <apreche> if you didn't MUD, you should MMO once.
[17:43:14] <GauntletWizard> I dunno
[17:43:29] <GauntletWizard> To some people, MMOs are like chicken pox
[17:43:31] <Bronzdragon> MMOs are just giant chatrooms.
[17:43:32] <GauntletWizard> You do one, you never again
[17:43:52] <GauntletWizard> but I know people who've died of MMOs; They treated them like crack
[17:43:52] <Bronzdragon> I don't think they compare to MUDs as they were.
[17:43:55] <Bronzdragon> Culture's not the same.
[17:44:18] <apreche> the original MMOs, like Everquest, were literally MUDs with graphics.
[17:46:16] <GauntletWizard> Okay, logging into my old mud to see the login banner (a big castle in the clouds) was hugely nostalgic
[17:46:26] <apreche> wait, that is strangely similar to my MUD...
[17:46:28] <Bronzdragon> <3
[17:46:43] <apreche> can I remember the name of it...
[17:47:48] <GauntletWizard> http://www.mudstats.com
[17:47:56] <apreche> yeah, that's definitely not mine
[17:48:00] <apreche> if I can only remember tha nem...
[17:48:07] <GauntletWizard> I think the theme was common
[17:48:12] <apreche> I have my MUD client on a floppy disk at home
[17:48:15] <GauntletWizard> I also played a star wars themed one
[17:48:17] <apreche> if it works, I can find it
[17:48:37] <GauntletWizard> I've kinda always wanted to make a finite automata mud
[17:48:43] <Bronzdragon> Hehe, floppy di(s/c)k
[17:48:53] <GauntletWizard> Kinda like core wars, but more theme-y
[17:52:39] <apreche> new netrunner vid, uploaded
[17:52:40] <apreche> https://www.youtube.com
[17:53:47] <GauntletWizard> I'm off to conduct an interview
[17:53:52] <GauntletWizard> ta-ta!
[17:54:09] <Bronzdragon> Have fun
[17:56:12] <pence> aww yiss, more nets
[17:57:18] <pence> I've been playing http://netrunner.meteor.com and it's super fun, but not as consistent with the parasite recursion as your kate deck
[17:58:01] <apreche> why two sharpshooters?
[17:58:22] <apreche> why armitage and not daily casts?
[17:58:34] <apreche> no console?
[17:58:56] <pence> I might cut one, It used to be 2 cyber-cypher 2 sharpshooter and I cut a cyber-cypher for deus x
[17:59:14] <apreche> no test runs at all?
[17:59:31] <apreche> no femme?
[17:59:40] <apreche> what do you do if someone rezzes a big ICE?
[17:59:47] <apreche> like a Hadrian's Wall
[18:00:20] <apreche> or a tollboof
[18:01:52] <pence> cyber cypher is $5 for a boof, not as nice as the $1 femme but it's only $1 to install with kate
[18:02:11] <apreche> and what if your cyber cypher isn't aimed at the boof?
[18:02:25] <apreche> mr. no scavenge
[18:02:51] <pence> hadrian's would be tough, I haven't had the misfortune of running into it yet
[18:03:10] <apreche> i mean, this deck can win, but just loses to certain things
[18:03:27] <apreche> at a tournament you have to face all kinds of opponents, and you need to have an answer for almost everything.
[18:03:33] <apreche> that's why I stopped playing darwin
[18:03:37] <apreche> no answer for corporate troubleshooter
[18:03:52] <pence> poor darwin...
[18:04:25] <pence> the last couple times I played this deck at a meetup, I ended up going full-on tagme and never using Kati
[18:04:40] <apreche> the corps had no tag punishment?
[18:05:08] <apreche> every serious corp deck I have has tag punishment
[18:05:11] <apreche> even if it's 1x closed accounts
[18:05:13] <pence> people not running closed accounts... to my benefit
[18:05:13] <apreche> for one influence
[18:05:14] <pence> yeah
[18:05:41] <apreche> more tag punishment is coming soon, so even better
[18:06:44] <pence> although I did get buried by a midseasons against NBN FA and realized I was fucked because I couldn't get rid of their psycho or siphon them enough to stop them
[18:06:44] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[18:07:08] <pence> I got lucky and pulled a private security force off of R&D to win but that was dicy
[18:07:46] <apreche> that's their bad
[18:07:55] <apreche> in a deck like that the only server you really need to protect is HQ and R&D
[18:08:08] <apreche> if they didn't defend R&D enough, that's a fail
[18:09:38] <pence> although now that you mentioned it, I think it's time for troubleshooter to make a comeback in my corp
[18:09:53] <pence> rototurret's friend
[18:09:53] <apreche> is your corp insanely wealthy?
[18:10:45] <pence> at least until the san san gets rezzed
[18:10:49] <pence> then it's only normal wealthy
[18:11:01] <apreche> you need a huge pile of cash to make a troubleshooter work
[18:11:08] <pence> hmm
[18:12:04] <pence> I could profiteering + archer, but then I'm missing out on NAPD contract
[18:23:52] <Bronzdragon> I kind of enjoy not having to cook a meal.
[18:24:04] <Bronzdragon> On the other hand, I regret not having a homecooked meal.
[18:42:22] <pence> Andy + Trixie sleeves
[18:42:23] <pence> nice
[19:25:33] -!- pence [pence!~chreimer@D4136568.672DEAC0.E178207D.IP] has parted #geeknights
[19:57:08] <Bronzdragon> ...
[19:57:21] <Bronzdragon> Those dots are to indicate I have nothing to say.
[20:05:01] <Apsup> Saying nothing also indicates that you have nothing to say.
[20:05:11] <Bronzdragon> Indeed
[20:05:24] <Bronzdragon> Well, to indicate I'd like to converse, but have nothing to converse about
[20:26:08] <GauntletWizard> that was a darn good interview
[20:26:45] <GauntletWizard> So, how about them yankees?
[20:27:08] <GauntletWizard> It is baseball season, and the cafe had Crackerjacks to celebrate
[20:36:31] <Bronzdragon> I don't know what is this baseballl
[20:47:48] <GauntletWizard> I want to reclaim glories of long-dead empires
[21:03:52] <GauntletWizard> upgrade
[21:03:56] <GauntletWizard> bleh
[21:03:59] <Bronzdragon> Downgrade
[21:04:02] <Bronzdragon> helb
[21:04:15] <GauntletWizard> I meant to /upgrade, but my / didn't take
[21:04:30] <Bronzdragon> type //
[21:04:34] <GauntletWizard> and now that's one less process running insecure openssl
[21:04:35] <Bronzdragon> Or \/?
[21:05:13] <Bronzdragon> Is that your own server that's more secure?
[21:06:56] <GauntletWizard> I run weechat on a box in the cloud
[21:09:28] <Bronzdragon> whee! (chat)
[21:36:50] -!- pence [pence!~pence@hide-6CF1BCD6.phlapa.fios.verizon.net] has joined #geeknights
[21:37:25] <Bronzdragon> ello again.
[21:37:52] <pence> hey
[21:41:11] <Bronzdragon> !
[21:57:03] -!- Robobuntoo has quit [Client exited]
[21:57:10] -!- Robobuntoo [Robobuntoo!~Robobunto@hide-DB068C1F.com] has joined #geeknights
[21:57:20] <GauntletWizard> That's better
[21:57:52] <GauntletWizard> don't think he was actually using it, but Robobuntoo had ten openssl libraries open
[21:57:53] <Robobuntoo> You can't had ten openssls!
[21:58:23] <pence> but you did!
[21:58:32] <Bronzdragon> He could be so comprimised!
[21:58:33] <Bronzdragon> OH NO
[21:59:36] <pence> well, dumping 64k of memory from the machine he's running on is probably not the best
[22:10:32] <Apsup> I hate my face.
[22:11:36] <Apsup> It's dry. And feels horrible.
[22:13:16] <Bronzdragon> =(
[22:13:22] <Bronzdragon> Have you tried licking it?
[22:14:19] <Apsup> I can't lick my own face. Also I don't think I would if I could.
[22:21:53] <GauntletWizard> I suggest Aloe
[22:31:29] <Apsup> That seems to grow in Africa. Not really in my back yard.
[22:51:29] <GauntletWizard> no, no no
[22:51:33] <GauntletWizard> Aloe grows freaking everywhere
[22:52:12] <Bronzdragon> Yup.
[22:52:15] <GauntletWizard> I've grown it in my backyard in temperate climates, my uncle has it growing in his desert yard, and I've got some sitting on my windowsil
[22:52:54] <GauntletWizard> Thing grows like a freaking weed, too; keep it in fresh soil, and you'll have enough sprouts to constantly give them to friends, or just have a nice rub once a week
[23:00:02] <Bronzdragon> Or eat.
