[07:30:13] <aria> Apsup: Networking in a video game is not going to use many bytes
[07:31:18] <aria> You can probably play an MMO for 30 minutes and have it not use more of your data cap than a one minute YouTube
[07:33:41] <Apsup> But downloading an video game takes like 5000gigs these days when the art of optimisation has been lost.
[07:34:17] <Apsup> It's not the playing I'm against, it's the downloading games I don't have on my system.
[07:37:49] <aria> Ah!
[07:37:53] <aria> That makes a lot of sense
[07:38:14] <aria> I can physical mail you a USB stick with the data on it
[07:38:39] <aria> Or better yet, you can download it while connected to a different network. In class for exmaple
[07:47:49] <Apsup> How the fuck do I move my home computer in class?
[07:47:50] <Robobuntoo> Censor yourself, Motherfucker!
[07:50:54] <aria> You don't, you download things to your laptop or tablet or phone
[07:51:02] <aria> then transfer them with samba when you get home
[07:51:42] <Apsup> ehhhhhh....it's bother. At that point I'd rather just blow my quota if there's something I care for that much.
[07:53:19] <aria> Really? Seems pretty low effort to me. If you have Steam or Origin or your laptop already
[07:56:44] <Apsup> I'd have to take it to uni, set it up in class (my laptop battery is busted so I need power) and then I have to get the game, then set it up again home and then move the files.
[07:56:59] <Apsup> Alternativelly I download a game and then suffer slower internet for a day.
[08:02:23] <aria> Your data cap resets per day?
[08:02:35] <aria> Oh yeah, you did say daily quota
[08:02:36] <aria> Alright
[08:03:35] <Apsup> No, it doesnt. It's 24 hour sliding window. Keeps trac of how much bandwith I've used in the last 24 hours, (check every hour) and if that goes over 20gigs it's slow lane for me.
[08:03:43] <Apsup> Until it goes back down again.
[08:06:01] <aria> I see, I see

[08:06:07] <Bronzdragon> HELLO
[08:06:17] <aria> man, data caps suck
[08:06:36] <Bronzdragon> Tell me about it!
[08:06:38] <aria> We almost got a 30GB data cap because sales rep for our ISP tried to sneak it in there
[08:06:57] <Bronzdragon> Wait, really?
[08:07:12] <Bronzdragon> 30 GB>!#
[08:07:19] <aria> She was all "Ok, so you want X and Y. Is there anything else I can do for you? Ok grand. As an extra service, I will apply a 30GB monthyl limit so you can browse all you want =)"
[08:07:33] <Bronzdragon> That's like... 1 movie!
[08:07:36] <aria> Yes.
[08:07:51] <aria> Also 30GB data cap and no datacap is the exact same price
[08:15:46] <aria> Man Reddit people are dumb.
[08:16:42] <Apsup> Now now, with the number of users there are in reddit, it's most likely that they are average.
[08:16:45] <Apsup> On average.
[08:52:44] <Bronzdragon> Hmm... that makse sense, but someohow not being able to complain isn't as good.
[09:35:22] <aria> I agree with that ^ guy
[12:56:28] <Apsup> Do code -> Compile -> Test -> Find error -> Fix code -> Compile again -> Test again -> Still error -> Actually save the fixed code -> Compile....
[13:02:05] <Bronzdragon> You don't use an IDE?
[13:06:37] <Apsup> Not in this context no.
[13:16:02] <Bronzdragon> Fair enough.

[13:26:13] <Apsup> Writing up material for rpg campaing is once again boring.
[13:26:40] <Apsup> Why can't I just project my thoughts on paper and have it automatically fill in blaks with information from the Internet.
[13:29:08] <Bronzdragon> Google's working on it.
[13:32:31] <Apsup> I just realized that pretty much everything I'm doing here is naming things, creating an system that finds/creates names around an theme shouldn't be that hard.
