[05:46:09] <Bronzdragon> yO YO YO
[06:04:10] <aria> Hey
[06:05:52] <Bronzdragon> :3
[06:05:55] <Bronzdragon> How are you?
[06:07:55] <aria> Tomorrow is skjaertorsdag. Which means Ill come to work and do nothing all day
[06:07:58] <aria> so thatll be nice
[06:08:06] <Bronzdragon> Awww yeah.
[06:09:19] <aria> Which according to my phone is called ascension day and according to Wikipedia is Maudy Thursday in English
[06:09:55] <aria> Maybe they're two different things. Ill find out
[06:31:05] <Bronzdragon> Hmmm...
[06:54:09] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Aleksi@hide-B4B1B39B.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[06:54:15] <Bronzdragon> HEY APSUP
[06:57:35] <Apsup> Hello
[06:57:57] <Bronzdragon> How are you?
[06:58:30] <Apsup> Awake and living.
[07:27:48] <Bronzdragon> I suppose that's good.
[07:34:16] <Apsup> +7 hours of sleep and still feel tired...
[07:41:27] <Bronzdragon> I will be tired with anything less then 9
[07:41:33] <Bronzdragon> Currently though, doing decently.
[07:43:57] <Apsup> I rarely do 9. Although I slept badly the night before, so that could explain why decent sleep didn't cut it now.
[07:44:47] <Bronzdragon> Yes.
[07:51:53] <aria> Maaaan
[07:52:11] <Bronzdragon> Naaam
[07:52:13] <aria> People are pissed about the Watch Dogs graphics on PC vs E3 demo
[07:53:00] <aria> There is a graphics comparisson video, and it looks the same minus that the PC version has decent visability and some wind effects
[07:54:07] <Bronzdragon> More leaves too.
[07:54:28] <aria> Maybe I should try to make some post effects thing work with it and lower the brightness a bunch and add a bunch of fog far away things, and people will think I "fixed it" somehow.
[07:55:06] <aria> The wind effects are actually cool. But its so over the top
[07:57:59] <Apsup> The actual game isn't as pretty as E3 demo? What a shock!
[07:58:09] <Apsup> Oh wait. It isn't. It's expected.
[09:02:00] <Bronzdragon> Y'know what I hate?
[09:02:28] <aria> What do you hate?
[09:02:48] <Bronzdragon> Negative people!
[09:02:50] <Bronzdragon> >=(
[09:03:08] <Bronzdragon> Why can't they frame things more positivly!
[09:11:02] <Apsup> Because they wouldn't be negative people if they framed things positivly
[09:11:33] <Bronzdragon> That's a fair point.
[09:21:41] <aria> Screenshot from Kamen Rider Gaim http://i.imgur.com
[09:25:50] <Bronzdragon> Screen shot or behind the scenes shot?
[09:25:59] <Bronzdragon> You can't tell, can you? Not with Kamen Rider!
[09:26:33] <aria> Behind the PHONES!
[09:26:43] <aria> Seriously though, look at his phone.
[09:27:11] <Bronzdragon> Maybe it's one of those phones with 2 screens on it?
[09:27:46] <aria> Possible
[10:19:29] <aria> Im hungry but Im not allowed to go on my lunch break yet...
[10:19:40] <Bronzdragon> Boo, facism
[10:42:40] <aria> 20 minutes more =(
[10:43:57] <aria> So hows your bombermans coming along?
[10:51:54] <Bronzdragon> Meh.
[11:06:42] <aria> Not a very good answer
[11:42:34] <Bronzdragon> This is true.
[11:49:02] <aria> Is the answer different now?
[11:49:19] <Bronzdragon> Yeah, it's going alright.
[11:49:21] <Bronzdragon> I think, sorta
[11:52:40] <aria> Alright, slightly better
[11:59:03] <aria> What does it matter if its sampled down to a MP3 or real time if its 100% automated anyway!? So if I play my song from my audio editor it counts differently than if I play it from my audio player?
[12:05:29] <Bronzdragon> For... what?
[12:08:26] <Bronzdragon> Well... I partially got my thing to work
[12:08:33] <Bronzdragon> I can now spawn bombs, so that's something
[12:08:41] <Bronzdragon> (They have meshes)
[12:09:29] <aria> Stupid internet arguments, don't worry about it. And meshes are very good! Much better than sprites!
[12:09:39] <aria> So whats partial about it? What doesn't work?
[12:14:45] <Bronzdragon> Not accessable in blueprints.
[12:14:51] <Bronzdragon> Also, they don't have physics or colour...
[12:15:05] <Bronzdragon> But I'll ignore that for a moment to see if I can set up some other stuff
[12:23:36] <Bronzdragon> Apperantly, timers aren't thread-safe.
[12:28:22] <Bronzdragon> Apperantly, when I start a timer, I get a crash!
[12:47:15] <Bronzdragon> *Sigh*. I guess I'll do some shopping, and come back to this later
[13:35:35] <Bronzdragon> Giantbomb seems to think Transistor is cool (Game by the Bastion guys)
[13:35:44] <Bronzdragon> Apperantly, it's very "Programmer-y".
[13:41:33] <Bronzdragon> English uses grave accents (`) in two ways. One is to indicate a vowel is silent (used in poetry), or to stress a letter (such as in writing
[13:59:35] <aria> Ah yes, I listened to that episode. It made it sound cool
[13:59:50] <Bronzdragon> Yeah, slightly

[14:13:22] <Bronzdragon> Yo yoshokatana!
[14:13:27] <yoshokatana> morning
[14:19:58] <aria> You don't take your laptop with you?
[14:25:13] <aria> Crap... I didn't bike to work, so I have to wait for the bus now..
[14:32:59] <pence> nah, this is a town hall type meeting where management talks about our numbers and direction for the quarter. I'll have my phone though, for emergency badging.
[14:33:14] <Bronzdragon> OH NO, BUSSSSSS

[15:21:20] <Bronzdragon> HEY SPACEJAME
[15:22:03] <spacejam> ohi
[15:22:27] <Bronzdragon> How are you?
[15:22:32] <spacejam> ok you
[15:22:33] <spacejam> ?
[15:22:39] <Bronzdragon> Good.
[15:24:02] <Bronzdragon> Google built a proper self-driving car
[15:24:07] <spacejam> oh?
[15:24:11] <spacejam> what's proper
[15:24:12] <Bronzdragon> One without steering wheel and stuff
[15:24:37] <Bronzdragon> http://www.amazon.com
[15:25:37] <spacejam> that doesn't drive itself
[15:26:10] <Bronzdragon> How do you mean?
[15:26:20] <Bronzdragon> That's what it looked like to me.
[15:26:24] <spacejam> those are cats
[15:26:29] <Bronzdragon> OH
[15:26:37] <Bronzdragon> https://www.youtube.com
[15:26:42] <Bronzdragon> Wrong link =P
[15:29:39] <spacejam> i wonder how it would drive in india
[15:31:40] <Bronzdragon> About as well as the average Indian
[15:38:21] <apreche> back to work :(
[15:38:46] <Bronzdragon> Boo

[15:51:38] <spacejam> haha
[15:51:43] <spacejam> random link = 21 minutes of clicking
[15:52:13] <Bronzdragon> Yeah, that happens.
[15:53:15] <spacejam> it gave me some ideas for projects though
[15:53:21] <spacejam> so we'll count it as productivity
[15:56:16] <Bronzdragon> Totally counts!
[17:12:50] <apreche> TICKETS ARE ON
[17:12:53] <apreche> I'm in the queue
[17:12:55] <apreche> probably going to fail
[17:12:57] <Bronzdragon> OH
[17:12:59] <Bronzdragon> OHHHHHHH
[17:13:23] <spacejam> site's not even loading
[17:13:25] <spacejam> oh wait
[17:13:42] <spacejam> that's just my third party request blocker
[17:14:32] <spacejam> adding a queue's a good start
[17:19:54] <spacejam> actually this seems gameable more than lottery - i could proxy up and hit the queue a bunch of times before i had to supply any PII
[17:20:07] <spacejam> just have 500 of my robotic minions waiting
[17:20:17] <apreche> got 4 4-day tix
[17:20:27] <Bronzdragon> Huza
[17:20:31] <spacejam> w00
[17:20:33] <Bronzdragon> *Huzza!
[17:22:44] <GauntletWizard> Hey hey
[17:27:18] <Bronzdragon> Hey GauntletWizard.
[17:28:07] <Apsup> So, no more talking about wating of Pax tickets?
[17:28:16] <Apsup> Welcome talk about waiting for pax.
[17:28:26] <Apsup> Which will be the logical next step.
[17:28:30] <GauntletWizard> meh
[17:28:31] <Bronzdragon> Yup.
[17:28:47] <apreche> with 4 PAXes, we are eternally waiting for PAX
[17:29:42] <Bronzdragon> ... It's worse than I thought.
[17:30:10] <spacejam> this queue page needs some entertainment
[17:30:20] <spacejam> animated gif guests
[17:31:18] <spacejam> and they're out of 4 days
[17:31:20] <spacejam> ummm
[17:31:27] <Bronzdragon> Oh, that was fast
[17:31:32] <spacejam> guess i want friday through sunday
[17:31:49] <pence> hahahaha
[17:31:50] <pence> called it
[17:31:56] <pence> got my one-days
[17:32:42] <Bronzdragon> Multiple one days?
[17:32:48] <pence> yeah
[17:32:52] <pence> 4x of each
[17:33:00] <pence> as soon as my butt hit the chair in the meeting I got the tweet
[17:33:10] <pence> reloaded the page, still wasn't updated
[17:33:14] <pence> so I fumbled, hit the link in the tweet
[17:33:22] <pence> and by the time I got through the queue the 4-days were gone
[17:33:28] <pence> :P
[17:34:09] <spacejam> i got 4 3days...monday was not the most exciting pax day last year
[17:34:21] <GauntletWizard> Yeah, I imagine I'm not getting tickets
[17:34:35] <spacejam> you can get the mondays i left over
[17:36:19] <spacejam> do hotels like double their prices during pax season?
[17:36:25] <apreche> no, the hotels are cheap
[17:36:30] <apreche> $186 a night for Red Lion
[17:36:38] <apreche> but that's because I got it through PAX
[17:36:45] <spacejam> is it normally 186 a night?
[17:36:45] <apreche> if you try to call the hotel directly, it will be more
[17:36:52] <apreche> the way conventions usually work
[17:36:59] <apreche> is they partner with the hotel
[17:37:18] <apreche> and negotiate a lower rate in exchange for basically guaranteeing the rooms will be full
[17:37:31] <apreche> like, hey, Sheraton, give me 100 rooms at a discount, I will fill them
[17:37:42] <spacejam> makes sense - it's probably more profitable than half empty
[17:37:44] <apreche> then if people book through sheraton directly they pay a high rate
[17:37:50] <apreche> but if they book through teh con, they get the discount
[17:37:59] <spacejam> on the other hand, whatever hotels are in the area are going to be full anyways
[17:38:02] <apreche> well, imagine if you have a seattle hotel
[17:38:07] <spacejam> whats pax gonna do, steer them to a far away hotel?
[17:38:09] <apreche> that isnt included in the pax registration system
[17:38:28] <apreche> all the other hotels will fill first, and only savvy people will even know you exist to book you.
[17:38:36] <spacejam> it must depend a lot on how full pax can get the local hotels
[17:38:51] <apreche> yeah, if you end up not filling the rooms as promised, that is bad
[17:39:01] <apreche> but PAX can basically fill the whole town, so...
[17:39:12] <spacejam> that's the big question
[17:39:25] <spacejam> if the red lion's gonna be full anyway, then they could not partner and get all the $
[17:39:36] <spacejam> if there's enough spare capacity that it might not be full
[17:39:48] <spacejam> that begs the question of "what would fill all the hotels in the downtown area?"
[17:40:39] <spacejam> but yeah, 186 seems way cheaper than what they charge for "random weekend in july"
[17:41:42] <apreche> the negotiation power of Khoo at work
[17:46:53] <Snickety-Snake> Saturday's sold out
[17:47:10] <apreche> all other individual days - LOW
[17:49:22] <GauntletWizard> No surprise
[17:51:34] <Snickety-Snake> Monday is all that remains
[17:51:56] <apreche> seriously, who wants to go to PAX on Labor Day only?
[17:52:09] <apreche> I guess you can see omegathon finale
[17:53:27] <GauntletWizard> Yep, sold out

[19:08:50] <Bronzdragon> Holy week has some pretty good names.
[20:01:47] <spacejam> we're not in holy week
[20:03:56] <Bronzdragon> I know
[20:04:59] <Bronzdragon> Wait, no, yes we are.
[20:05:18] <spacejam> oh
[20:05:26] <Bronzdragon> Wait, no
[20:05:32] <Bronzdragon> Different "Holy thursday"
[20:06:30] <spacejam> what's that
[20:06:47] <Bronzdragon> Holy week is this: http://en.wikipedia.org
[20:07:01] <Bronzdragon> While tomorrow is http://en.wikipedia.org
[20:10:41] <spacejam> it says at the top that it's not to be confused with the thursday of holy week
