[08:21:16] <Bronz|work> The sourness of this apple is severely hampering my enjoyment of it.

[08:32:05] <Bronz|work> Hai Apsup
[08:43:18] <Apsup> Yo
[08:43:49] <open_sketch> yo
[08:52:19] <aria> Hello
[08:53:13] <open_sketch> this is basically the ships passing in the night IRC
[08:53:18] <open_sketch> discuss nothing
[08:53:29] <open_sketch> merely acknowledge one another to avoid collision
[08:56:31] <Apsup> That allegory was stupid in all the ways, even in the context.
[08:56:59] <Apsup> "They can't be tracked or followed, let's just log in this public irc channel and see what they are talking about."
[08:58:28] <Bronz|work> Hey open_sketch!
[08:58:47] <Bronz|work> So when do I get my drugs?
[08:58:50] <open_sketch> hey bronz
[08:58:51] <open_sketch> lol
[08:59:05] <open_sketch> Apsup: listen its a work in progress metaphor
[08:59:09] <open_sketch> if i had the funding i was promised
[08:59:12] <open_sketch> we coulda made something of it
[08:59:23] <open_sketch> but it was deployed early and without testing
[08:59:39] <open_sketch> you go to IRC with the phrases you got, not the phrases you want
[09:09:29] <open_sketch> also i just looked up ships passing in the night and
[09:09:32] <open_sketch> "Two or more people who encounter one another in a transitory, incidental manner and whose relationship is without lasting significance; two or more people who almost encounter one another, but do not do so."
[09:09:38] <open_sketch> i would say that is apt as fuck
[09:10:41] <open_sketch> in fact the original poem even acknowledges the ships signalling one another as they pass
[09:25:01] <Bronz|work> I thought it was beautiful
[09:25:09] <Bronz|work> It's just that Numb3rs ruined it.
[09:28:29] <open_sketch> lol
[09:28:39] <open_sketch> thanks 0bama
[09:29:01] <Bronz|work> Pretty sure he personally wrote it.
[09:29:14] <open_sketch> instead of fixing the economy
[09:29:22] <open_sketch> are you really surprised
[09:29:23] <Bronz|work> I would find it for you, but I'm not allowed.
[09:29:39] <open_sketch> i don't know what i found funny before obama was elected
[09:29:57] <Bronz|work> I dunno, the prince of persia/Excel database clip has a special place in my heart for terrible misrepresented videoclips.
[09:30:16] <open_sketch> ooh what is this?
[09:30:28] <Bronz|work> I think it's from a show called life? Maybe?
[09:32:12] <aria> Wait waht is that?
[09:32:27] <aria> Some dude is playing Prince of Persia by filling in a spreadsheet?
[09:33:01] <open_sketch> thats how i played i dont see how that's weird
[09:35:46] <aria> My CPU cooler that I ordered from Amazon has a estimated shipping window of 6 weeks
[09:35:58] <aria> with priority 2 day shipping
[09:36:49] <aria> I don't like it.
[09:37:19] <open_sketch> ouch
[09:38:05] <aria> This is after they changed it from the original estimate, which was 2 weeks ago. So yknow, up to 2 months after ordering
[09:38:17] <Bronz|work> Eh, what's another couple of weeks.#
[09:38:23] <Bronz|work> You've been waiting 4 already
[09:38:32] <aria> I've waited 2
[09:38:37] <aria> I don't wanna wait 6 more =P
[09:41:24] <Bronz|work> This is the video talked about earlier: http://www.youtube.com
[09:41:28] <Bronz|work> (The IRC one)
[09:42:04] <Bronz|work> http://www.gametrailers.com
[09:42:05] <Bronz|work> FOUND IT
[09:42:09] <Bronz|work> Geeze, so hard to find!
[11:25:10] -!- Churba [Churba!Churba@hide-31E1CBFF.vic.bigpond.net.au] has joined #geeknights
[11:25:13] <Churba> Yo fools
[11:27:03] <aria> It's true =(
[11:28:10] <Bronz|work> I ain't nobody's fool!
[11:28:47] <Bronz|work> Actually, that's not true. I forgot my google password so I can't create an account on this website using it's shmancy pantsy login thing =(
[11:31:09] <Churba> Last-pass, man
[11:31:13] <Churba> Get that shiz
[11:31:38] <Bronz|work> I'm at work.
[11:31:47] <Churba> You can get it for your phone, too
[11:33:31] <Bronz|work> Yeah, I suppose.
[11:33:33] <Bronz|work> I should.
[11:33:41] <Bronz|work> Rather, I should just remember my gmail password.
[11:37:07] <Churba> That also works
[11:37:49] <Bronz|work> I tend to think it's the best option.
[11:37:55] <Bronz|work> I think I'll go change it today.
[11:38:04] <Bronz|work> Into something more secure AND memorable.
[11:41:25] <Churba> I suggest you change it to password
[11:41:30] <Churba> nobody would ever guess, it's too obvious
[12:02:25] <aria> Don't you mean pa$sword?
[12:02:40] <Bronz|work> Gotta change that O
[12:02:48] <Bronz|work> O stands for OBVIOUS!
[12:13:57] <Churba> Oh yeah, if you use steam skins, make sure you update them. The new music update is breaking quite a few of them
[12:25:01] <Bronz|work> I am using one!
[12:26:30] <Bronz|work> Are you using the new steam update?
[12:33:46] <Churba> Ayup
[12:35:23] <Churba> It's missing a few things, like the ability to download soundtracks independent of the game(As far as I know) along with some sort of progress bar or jog wheel to skip to different parts of the track, but otherwise really good
[12:36:02] <Bronz|work> Wait, it's for game soundtracks?
[12:36:18] <Bronz|work> Like, you can choose which soundtrack you want within a game?
[12:36:36] <Bronz|work> Lemmie ask google what this is all about.
[12:36:42] <Churba> Sort of
[12:36:55] <Churba> It defaults to that, they're in there with zero extra effort if you own the associated soundtracks
[12:37:06] <Churba> But you can also tell it to look at your regular music folder, and pull tracks from there
[12:38:03] <Churba> like, I've got the black snake moan soundtrack on right now
[12:38:45] <Churba> Which makes you feel like a wicked badass
[12:39:29] <Churba> Which is good, because I'm playing warframe, and in that game, I AM a badass
[13:00:35] <Bronz|work> Hehe.
[13:08:54] <Apsup> It by default scanned my reqular music folder and now there is so much shit from there that I can't even tell if I have any soundtraks. Probably not if I have to download them separetly.
[13:09:13] <Apsup> Excling any game soundtracks I might have with my reqular music.
[13:09:44] <Apsup> It also pulled all my downloaded podcasts from the iTunes folder...
[13:10:36] <Bronz|work> Podcast intergration might be pretty nice though.
[13:10:59] <Bronz|work> I used that on the 360 a couple of times, and it was nice that any time a cutscene played, the podcast was paused.
[13:12:03] <Apsup> iTunes and hotkeys on keyboard is good enough.
[13:12:34] <Apsup> cutscene or anything that requires me to process text or words start and I just press the play/pause button.
[13:13:47] <Bronz|work> Yeah, but automatic is better than manual.
[13:13:50] <Bronz|work> Most of the time anyway
[13:14:33] <Apsup> I don't trust automatic systems to know exactly when I want to listen to my podcasts and when I don't.
[13:14:39] <Apsup> It's my choise to make.
[13:15:21] <Bronz|work> DAMN RIGHT, GUUURL.
[13:15:50] <Churba> Eh, I don't like itunes so much
[13:16:17] <Churba> It's big, bloated, slow, and for some arcane reason doesn't work on my system because of a wierd DLL error that I can't identify
[13:17:20] <Apsup> It still handles podcasts well and works well with my iPod.
[13:17:34] <Apsup> I don't use it for music, but for podcasts there is nothing better.
[13:17:35] <Churba> True, it was good at managing podcast on my iphone
[13:17:43] <Bronz|work> The only thing I don't like about iTunes is how it absolutely steals all my media button inputs.
[13:17:50] <Churba> but now that I don't use an iphone, it got deep-sixed real fast
[13:18:16] <Bronz|work> Everything else is logical about it. When it's in the background, and I have a video player in the foreground, it won't take it.
[13:18:53] <Apsup> I generally only have one media player on at a time, max, so it really doesn't matter to me.
[13:19:21] <Churba> I wish I could ride a giant mechanical spider around
[13:19:47] <Bronz|work> Like, that you had the abillity or the means?
[13:20:37] <Churba> Well, both, really
[13:20:46] <Churba> Be a bit shit if you only had one and not the other
[13:21:33] <Bronz|work> Yeah, that's true.
[13:22:11] <Churba> I am flexible on the fire-breathing part, at least
[13:24:04] <Bronz|work> Are you saying it can be ice breath too?
[13:24:33] <Churba> I can dig ice breath. Poison breath is right out though, that shit lingers. One bit of wind the wrong way, and BAM, you're fucked
[13:24:52] <Bronz|work> So true, so true.
[13:25:35] <Bronz|work> guy just called me, wouldn't believe he had the wrong number.
[13:25:46] <Bronz|work> Like, he would not believe I knew nothing about a specific thing.
[13:25:56] <Bronz|work> A scooter/motorbike I was buying/selling?
[13:26:18] <Churba> Wierd
[13:27:38] <Bronz|work> Yeah.
[13:27:47] <Bronz|work> He seemed to have a Dutch accent too, so I was doubly confused.
[13:28:00] <Churba> I very rarely have that sort of thing happen, but the worst one was when I had to let a dude down gently, and tell him that the girl at the bar had given him a wrong number.
[13:30:42] <Bronz|work> Aww, you could've taken her place!
[13:33:23] -!- yoshokatana [yoshokatana!~yoshokata@hide-D8B0D05C.nyc.res.rr.com] has joined #geeknights
[13:36:38] <Bronz|work> Hello yoshokatana.
[13:37:29] <Churba> Nelson, sup bruv
[13:45:27] <yoshokatana> morning
[13:45:57] <Churba> goddamned nearly, so I should propably go to bed
[13:46:37] <Bronz|work> Maybe...
[13:46:47] <Bronz|work> Then again, what's bed gonna do for ya.
[13:48:00] <Churba> Provide a good place to be horizontal for a while
[13:51:28] <Bronz|work> I suppose.
[13:51:32] <Bronz|work> I do like playing DS in bed.
[13:52:03] <Churba> Right, I'm out, but I leave you with this thought: With advances in Prothetics and miniturised fusion power technology, one day it will be possible to hug our childeren with nuclear arms

[13:57:53] <Bronz|work> Co-worker disolocated her knee behind the desk.
[13:57:59] <Bronz|work> That sounds really bad!
[13:58:17] <Bronz|work> When I heard her earlier, I thought she got a phone call that her grandpa died...
[13:58:52] <Bronz|work> All of HR is circling around her now.
[14:27:29] <Bronz|work> Btw, did you guys hear about shellshock?
[14:27:50] <Bronz|work> It's an exploit in Bash that allows you to run arbitrary code.
[17:48:24] <GauntletWizard> Yeah, it's nuts
[17:48:34] <GauntletWizard> crazy bad exploit
[22:03:58] <yoshokatana> pro tip: never try to harball me when negotiating
[22:04:46] <yoshokatana> I applied for an apartment (for oct. 15th), and they want me to pay an onerous amount of money right when I sign the lease (aka tomorrow)
[22:05:14] <yoshokatana> I suggested that I could pay a deposit, and then the rest when we exchange keys (like you do in the rest of the country)
[22:05:35] <yoshokatana> the broker was like "oh no I don't think that'll work"
[22:05:48] <yoshokatana> so I just said "ok, I suppose I'll have to pass on this place"
[22:06:00] <yoshokatana> and now he's frantically trying to put a deal together
[22:07:07] <open_sketch> haha
[22:07:07] <open_sketch> niec
[22:07:08] <open_sketch> nice
[22:13:13] <yoshokatana> hah. they wanted me to get a guarantor by tomorrow. yeah, not gonna happen.
[22:13:26] <yoshokatana> oh well. it was a really nice apartment. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
[22:16:17] <open_sketch> there's only one option now
[22:16:19] <open_sketch> scorched earth
[22:16:27] <open_sketch> if you can't have it, noone can
[22:16:43] <yoshokatana> hah
