[20:28:15] <Rym> Idle timer begins this day
[20:28:23] <Rym> I'm the best at idling on IRC
[20:29:45] <spacejam> are you doing a desert bus style idle for charity?
[20:29:57] -!- pence [pence!chreimer@D4136568.672DEAC0.E178207D.IP] has joined #geeknights
[20:30:12] <pence> heard there's a party in this channel
[20:31:38] <Rym> A lemon party
[20:31:49] <Rym> I even installed Mirc
[20:31:50] <Rym> Don'
[20:31:56] <Rym> t even know if Perch still exists
[20:32:41] <pence> I'm actually using pidgin
[20:33:20] <Rym> I guess no one bothers with the old grognard IRC crap anymore, so I probably don't need a "real" IRC client these days.
[20:33:25] <pence> a far cry from having irssi running in a console window in an SSH session in college
[20:33:25] <Rym> What are the odds of a netsplit?
[20:36:12] <pence> every time I bring up IRC in a casual conversation, I get the impression the only thing other people have used it for is downloading files from bots
[20:37:48] <Rym> That seems to be what idiots use it for. It's like a weird old man's bittorrent.
[20:48:28] -!- Neito [Neito!Neito@1209829A.F7B103C7.5E4272EE.IP] has joined #geeknights
[20:49:13] <Rym> It's a party now
[20:49:32] <Rym> <Zybl0re> get up
[20:49:32] <Rym> <Zybl0re> get on up
[20:49:32] <Rym> <Zybl0re> get up
[20:49:32] <Rym> <Zybl0re> get on up
[20:49:32] <Rym> <phxl|paper> and DANCE
[20:49:32] <Rym> * nmp3bot dances :D-<
[20:49:32] <Rym> * nmp3bot dances :D|-<
[20:49:32] <Rym> * nmp3bot dances :D/-<
[20:49:56] <Neito> I keep forgetting this is a thing.
[20:50:14] <Neito> Mostly because college brought me a whole bunch of these "friend" things that wanna use up all my time.
[20:51:23] <Neito> But right now, it's either this or listen to my professor attempt to explain Shortest Job First strategies.
[20:52:16] <Neito> Also, you forgot the end of that quote, which is <[SA]HatfulOfHollow> If I could invent a way to stab someone in the face over the internet, I'd be rich.
[20:59:41] -!- Victor-Frost [Victor-Frost!Victor-Fro@hide-233A7D43.socal.res.rr.com] has joined #geeknights
[20:59:56] <Victor-Frost> Aloha
[21:00:59] <Neito> Gutten tag.
[21:01:46] <Victor-Frost> What's happenin'?
[21:01:57] <Neito> I'm trying to stay awake in class.
[21:02:06] <Neito> Rym made a joke older than the forums.
[21:02:08] <Neito> THe usual.
[21:02:14] <Victor-Frost> Boring class, then?
[21:02:23] <Neito> Analysis of Algorhythms.
[21:02:43] <spacejam> that sounds like the best class
[21:03:12] <Victor-Frost> Does the teacher rap all the formulas?
[21:03:26] <Neito> No, it's a study of Al Gore's dancing.
[21:04:00] <Victor-Frost> Do you learn about the intricacies of setting up mad beats in a drum machine?
[21:04:18] <Neito> Nah, that's for the advanced class.
[21:04:28] <Neito> Where we learn how to put the computer in the Depeche mode.
[21:04:52] <Victor-Frost> *rimshot*
[21:05:03] <Neito> I love when people accept a game of Hearthstone and then forget to actually play.
[21:05:29] <GauntletWizard> Hearthstone is a game that is best won by not playing
[21:06:11] <Neito> Eh, I don't mind it too much.
[21:06:21] <Neito> It's a fun little distraction.
[21:06:49] <Neito> And it's easier to play in class than League.
[21:10:42] <Victor-Frost> I used to play racing games in class. Perfected my Battersea Lancer Evo Gymkhana run.
[21:18:26] <Apsup> I've played all kinds of things on class.
[21:18:46] <Victor-Frost> Like the harmonica?
[21:18:53] <Apsup> Never that actually.
[21:19:05] <Apsup> That's for my ears only.
[21:19:20] <Victor-Frost> It's an experience.
[21:21:28] <Rym> You kids. If I was bored in class, I'd just sleep
[21:21:36] <Rym> I carried a fucking pillow with me
[21:21:54] <Rym> And used my duster as a blanket
[21:22:02] <Neito> The classes at this school are small enough that teachers can hit me with things if I sleep.
[21:22:24] <Neito> Also, I snore loud enough that former roommates have threatened bodily harm.
[21:22:28] <Victor-Frost> All of my classes had participation as a major part of the grade. I had to, at least, feign attention.
[21:23:00] <Victor-Frost> Besides, I learn by listening.
[21:24:53] <Neito> I'd make the standard "I don't learn in my classes' joke that every college kid makes, but honestly, they're pretty good for a state school that's mostly know for teachers.
[21:25:25] <Neito> Granted, our average CS graduating class is 17 kids and we just got accredited this year, but... I like to look at the positive.
[21:27:46] <Neito> Also, the weirdest thing for me is that I have an online class with a participation grade.
[21:28:15] <Rym> I slept soundly once in a seminar class that had a grand total of 8 students in the room
[21:28:32] <Rym> Professor ignored me, and I woke up later in the empty room
[21:28:37] <Rym> Aced the class.
[21:28:59] <Victor-Frost> I'm, literally, the last student to graduate from my university with a degree in radio. They killed the program.
[21:29:13] <Victor-Frost> Actually, from the whole CSU system.
[21:29:14] <Neito> I ace any class with any sort of "let me talk for my grade" wiggle room.
[21:29:58] <Neito> I've been held up and an exemplar of presentations of things I learned about ten minutes before I started talking.
[21:31:04] <Victor-Frost> Ditto. I bull shitted my way through a class presentation and, during the Q&A segment, people commented that it was like watching a VSAUCE video.
[21:31:21] <Victor-Frost> High praise, as far as I'm concerned.
[21:32:03] <Rym> Haha
[21:32:06] <Neito> I think my advisor said it best about me. "[He's] gotten very far on pure talent and cleverness alone, but when he hits something that he actually has to study for, it's going to catch up to him."
[21:32:18] <Rym> Ok Kvothe
[21:32:41] <Neito> Granted, people have been saying that about me since kindergarden and it hasn't happened yet, but I'm not saying it's impossible.
[21:33:39] <Neito> I dunno if it's good or bad that I had to look that up.
[21:34:03] <Victor-Frost> I looked it up.
[21:35:07] <Neito> Plus, there's a big difference between me and Captain Niceguy. I'm capable of non-disgusting relationships with women. My soul is fedora-free, good sir.
[21:35:42] <Victor-Frost> Wait, what? How did we get here?
[21:36:37] <Neito> Rym's described that series as "Captain Niceguy's Fedora Adventures in Penisland" or something like that. It's basically a friendzone power fantasy, from what I've gathered.
[21:37:07] <Victor-Frost> I thought it was KVothe from the Kingkiller Chronicle.
[21:40:07] -!- Neito has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[21:47:22] <Rym> Well, it never caught up with me
[21:47:38] <Rym> I was 90% talent on both the trumpet and school
[21:47:50] <Rym> Turns out that'll also get you a great job even with basically zero domain knowledge ;^)
[21:54:01] <pence> I missed bash.org quoting time?!
[21:54:38] <pence> <i8b4uUnderground> d-_-b
[21:54:38] <pence> <BonyNoMore> how u make that inverted b?
[21:54:38] <pence> <BonyNoMore> wait
[21:54:38] <pence> <BonyNoMore> never mind
[22:02:06] <GauntletWizard> \identify nickserv hunter2
[22:02:44] <pence> \msg nickserv ghost GauntletWizard hunter2
[22:04:09] <GauntletWizard> having to actually work caught up with me when I went to work
[22:04:12] <Rym> I made a hunter2 reference on Fark a few weeks ago
[22:04:24] <Rym> ONE MOTHERFUCKER noticed hours later
[22:04:34] <GauntletWizard> of course, I work for a household name on their 'shit is on fire, shit shit shit' team
[22:21:15] -!- pence has quit [Connection reset by peer]
[22:34:51] <hitstun> Whoa shit, Rym found the IRC channel
[22:35:45] <hitstun> I was about to give up on idling Foonetic, too
[22:39:50] <GauntletWizard> I blame australia
[22:40:09] <GauntletWizard> he was replaced by a irc doppelganger while down there
[22:48:02] <Apsup> So improvement?

[23:20:58] <Coldguy> damn we are getting close to a chat room now, 3 people talk omg
[23:22:35] <hitstun> HexChat does weird things to my streaming setup, though, so I'll have to close it in half an hour when I start streaming TIE Fighter
[23:25:27] <Coldguy> I'm relaxing with animal crossing
[23:25:37] <Coldguy> it appears I found their equivelent to emojis
[23:34:32] <hitstun> Oh yeah, I should probably tell you where my TIE Fighter stream's going to be. It's http://instagib.tv

[23:59:35] <GauntletWizard> I'm browsing naughty websites at work
[23:59:41] <GauntletWizard> but it's okay, because I'm using lynx
[23:59:52] <pence> a lot of ascii porn
[23:59:55] <Coldguy> haha
