[06:52:07] -!- Demisedulous has quit [Quit: Sleeping]
[06:53:41] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[07:05:04] <Bronz|work> Lotus Notes sucks.
[07:05:17] <Bronz|work> This status bar pop up now takes up about 50% of one of my screens
[07:05:23] <Bronz|work> No matter what I do, it's always on top.
[07:07:15] <aria> Morning, are people still around?
[07:10:13] <open_sketch> beeeeep
[07:10:19] <open_sketch> i'm technically a person
[07:14:00] <Bronz|work> Hmmm, I dunno...
[07:14:12] <Bronz|work> Is that really something a person would say?
[07:14:34] <open_sketch> good point
[07:17:55] <Bronz|work> So, what are you upto.... 'person'?
[07:21:25] <open_sketch> texturing
[07:21:29] <open_sketch> learning the starcraft SDK
[07:21:37] <open_sketch> breaking civilization in the background
[07:21:43] <open_sketch> http://i.imgur.com
[07:21:47] <open_sketch> i dunno how i did this
[07:21:49] <open_sketch> but i did this
[07:22:45] <Bronz|work> I lack the context to properly appriciate this.
[07:23:12] <open_sketch> i have a golden age for 256 turns. For context, they are supossed to last about 20 turns
[07:24:09] <Bronz|work> Ah, that's pretty good then.
[07:25:16] <open_sketch> yeah, im not entirely sure how i did it
[07:25:28] <open_sketch> i dont think im supposed to stack these many golden age increasing bonuses
[07:25:52] <Bronz|work> You're so golden, maaan
[08:27:01] <Bronz|work> Talking a non-tech person through internet troubleshooting another non-tech person is really hard.
[08:27:16] <Bronz|work> Especially because I have to make the first non-tech person look good.
[08:27:36] <Bronz|work> (Also, I can't hear what they're saying to each other that well.
[09:49:48] <Bronz|work> They sell hot choclate at work.
[09:49:51] <Bronz|work> This changed everything
[10:04:08] <open_sketch> updating and opening openoffice for the first time in like, 2 years
[10:04:13] <open_sketch> what did i even do before google docs
[10:04:33] <open_sketch> WAIT CANCEL THAT
[10:04:35] <open_sketch> GOOGLE SLIDES
[10:04:42] <open_sketch> i can do everything on the googles
[10:04:43] <Bronz|work> Aww yis
[10:04:46] <open_sketch> why would i ever not
[10:05:03] <Bronz|work> Because you live in the antarctic and Internet is kind of bleh?
[10:05:17] <open_sketch> i guess that would be a reason
[10:05:25] <open_sketch> somebody hook a penguin cart up
[10:05:33] <open_sketch> we're going to run some fibre to the research base
[10:06:09] <Bronz|work> What if you're in the ISS?
[10:07:59] <Bronz|work> Bit hard (though not impossible!) to do fiber
[10:14:37] <open_sketch> have a train moving very, very quickly under you
[10:14:39] <open_sketch> should work just fine
[10:15:12] <open_sketch> i'm assembling some slides for my panelthingy and wow this is fun :D
[10:15:17] <open_sketch> i haven't done a powerpoint since like
[10:15:21] <open_sketch> tenth grade
[10:16:28] <Bronz|work> Powerpoints is fun because it's just making a bunch of fun images in a row.
[10:17:08] <open_sketch> i also got to google a ton of obscure-ass RPGs from the 90s for this
[10:17:14] <open_sketch> to use the titles
[10:17:23] <open_sketch> this is going to be so much fun
[10:52:45] <Bronz|work> So, how goes it?
[10:54:47] <open_sketch> pretty good
[10:55:16] <open_sketch> i have no idea how many slides i actually need so i'm going a bit dense and i'll take them out and merge them as needed
[11:25:50] <open_sketch> hehehe
[11:25:54] <open_sketch> i just set up an excellent slide
[11:26:02] <open_sketch> it's just a picture of page 86 of the Pathfinder book
[11:26:12] <open_sketch> and "Hey, I'm going to pirate all of Pathfinder to you, right now"
[11:26:26] <open_sketch> i then quote the paragraph and a half about how to make skill checks
[11:26:30] <open_sketch> THATS IT
[11:26:32] <open_sketch> THATS THE GAME
[11:26:39] <Bronz|work> =P
[11:27:23] <open_sketch> it serves a larger point of like, you should think of your game as a one-page RPG no matter what the scope is
[11:27:43] <open_sketch> everything that's not on that one page is "details" and details are worthless if they don't have a good foundation
[11:27:51] <open_sketch> ... but it's also a shameless poke at D&D-likes :P
[11:28:30] <Bronz|work> I agree with you.
[11:30:03] <open_sketch> i'm tempted to do one more page of just like, those relevant paragraphs from a pile of different games :P
[11:30:18] <open_sketch> but that'll probably be too much
[11:31:10] <Bronz|work> Eh, you can skip through slides pretty quick
[11:33:06] <open_sketch> true
[11:43:00] <open_sketch> i have also designed a small, stupid game for demonstration purposes inside this slide set
[11:43:03] <open_sketch> it is called WIZARD COPS
[11:43:42] <Bronz|work> Is it cops who happen to be wizards or cops specifically tasked with fighting wizard crime?
[11:43:46] <Bronz|work> Because both sound good.
[11:44:04] <open_sketch> its the second
[11:44:16] <open_sketch> it has four lines of rules
[11:44:21] <Bronz|work> I guess that makes sense..
[11:45:32] <open_sketch> "You have 10 Reputation, 5 Gold and 1 Life. Reputation < Gold < Life. Whenever you have a conflict, wager stuff and roll a d4. Highest wins. You can raise your bet over what the opponent rolled if you don't want to lose, and roll a d4 again."
[11:45:34] <Robobuntoo> You can't have ten Reputation,s!
[11:45:57] <open_sketch> Robobuntoo doesn't play by the rules
[11:48:28] <Bronz|work> Wait, so the highest roll wins?
[11:48:39] <open_sketch> you add your wage
[11:48:39] <Bronz|work> So then you always wager 1 reputation, right?
[11:48:40] <open_sketch> wager
[11:48:43] <Bronz|work> Oh.
[11:48:51] <open_sketch> yeah (it's not written as i summarized it here)
[11:49:02] <Bronz|work> Fair enough, that is actual rules.
[11:49:10] <open_sketch> so you could win every conflict by betting your life
[11:49:18] <open_sketch> until you meet A WIZARD COP ON THE EDGE WITH NOTHING TO LOSE
[11:50:28] <Bronz|work> I do like the fact that you can use upto one life.
[11:50:47] <open_sketch> i imagine there are wizards with more than one life
[11:51:35] <Bronz|work> Like cat wizards?
[11:51:44] <open_sketch> y4eah
[11:51:46] <Bronz|work> Cat wizards would be the most powerful beings imaginable.
[11:51:55] <open_sketch> ...goddamnit you know i'm tempted to give Wizard Cops a proper write-up
[11:52:06] <open_sketch> but i think having it as an actual product would undermine my point :P
[11:52:07] <Bronz|work> It sounds pretty good.
[11:52:21] <Bronz|work> That's true...
[11:52:26] <Bronz|work> You could make it later.
[11:52:28] <open_sketch> yeah
[11:52:30] <open_sketch> that's my thinking
[11:52:42] <open_sketch> or release it as the jokiest release ever
[11:52:45] <open_sketch> like
[11:52:56] <open_sketch> write it in blue pen on lined paper, scan it, put it up
[11:53:54] <open_sketch> "this is the dumb game i wrote to show how to make a dumb game"
[11:55:42] <Bronz|work> I might have to play wizard cops.
[12:05:06] <open_sketch> ... if i put it up for free, actually, that'll be the best of both worlds
[12:05:10] <open_sketch> it can act as an example, basically
[12:06:27] <Bronz|work> Hmm-mm!
[12:08:00] <open_sketch> heheh for "Adding Complexity" i have added a slide "ADVANCED WIZARD COPS"
[12:39:15] <Bronz|work> Nice
[12:39:26] <Bronz|work> Wizard Cops, 3.5th ed
[13:29:29] <Bronz|work> This pizza's pretty good.
[13:29:39] <Bronz|work> I wish I could have more of it, but it's like, all the way over there -->

[21:48:45] <spacejam> so if you select text in your webpage
[21:49:09] <spacejam> you can get it with document.createSelection or something
[21:50:02] <spacejam> but if you create a separate dialog for the user to edit it, like, if i'm wordpress and i let you change a hyperlink or something
[21:50:20] <spacejam> the selection jumps away
