[07:22:23] <GauntletWizard> damn
[07:22:38] <GauntletWizard> oh, wait, I am drunk enough to not notice a bronz
[07:22:43] <GauntletWizard> Bronz|work: You there?

[07:25:05] <Bronz|work> Hey GauntletWizard
[07:25:10] <Bronz|work> I actually just got in.
[07:25:16] <Bronz|work> My work starts in 5 minutes.
[07:25:29] <Bronz|work> How's your drunkness?
[07:47:14] <open_sketch> beep
[07:49:26] <Bronz|work> Hey Sketch
[07:50:50] <open_sketch> hi bronz
[07:50:52] <open_sketch> what you up to
[07:51:51] <Bronz|work> Working.
[07:52:00] <Bronz|work> This lady's button disappeared, she says.
[07:53:17] <open_sketch> working at work or working on a project?
[07:53:20] <open_sketch> oh
[07:53:23] <open_sketch> workywork
[07:53:28] <open_sketch> clearly user error
[07:53:35] <open_sketch> tell them to delete system32

[07:54:41] <Bronz|work> I made that joke once to a colleague, she took it quite seriously.
[07:59:33] <open_sketch> epic lolz
[08:02:02] <Bronz|work> She wasn't mad I lied to her, just confused.
[08:02:15] <Bronz|work> "Why would you tell me to ruin someone's computer, that doesn't make sense" sorta way
[08:02:19] <Bronz|work> I felt kinda bad
[08:02:27] <open_sketch> that's both sad and hilarious
[08:09:34] <Demisedulous> That's way awkward
[08:09:57] <Demisedulous> next time just tell them to install adobe reader
[08:14:23] <Bronz|work> Actually, google ultron is not allowed
[08:14:34] <Bronz|work> We're an IE only company
[08:14:43] <Bronz|work> And up to a month ago, it was IE8.
[08:15:27] <Demisedulous> the fuckin
[08:15:31] <Demisedulous> I feel for you
[08:20:42] <Bronz|work> It's actually pretty nice, because everything we use is made to use with IE, and anything that doesn't work, we can say "Too bad, don't support it (btw, we can't advise you to download firefox for it *wink*)"
[08:34:23] -!- Apsup [Apsup!~Aleksi@hide-B4B1B39B.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[08:36:19] <Bronz|work> Hai Apsup
[08:44:29] <Apsup> Morning Bronz.
[08:56:16] <Bronz|work> How do you do?
[08:58:24] <Apsup> Sipping coffee and checking out the internet.
[08:58:34] <Demisedulous> time for sleep
[08:58:41] <Bronz|work> Good night
[08:58:49] <Demisedulous> all y'all have good days and nights

[10:20:15] <Bronz|work> Hi Churba
[10:28:39] <Churba> Hey Bronz
[10:28:58] <Bronz|work> How goes being a major bad-ass?
[10:32:05] <Churba> Ah, not too shabby, really. Just got done doing a first edit pass over a bunch of stuff I've been writing for a game project. 150-ish pages worth, and it's got more red ink than a communist party manifesto.
[10:33:36] <Churba> That's alright though, it's just character and background stuff. I'll propably get it pared down to about a hundred or so, maybe less, and trim a lot of the fat out, just the meat and marble.
[10:33:40] <Churba> How's yourself?
[10:34:32] <Bronz|work> Doing pretty well, having a chill Friday an all that.
[10:47:48] <Churba> Oooh, aldi has a powerfile on tomorrow for sixty bucks
[10:56:34] <Churba> that's a fucking good deal, and I could do with a powerfile
[10:58:26] <Bronz|work> problem might be the quailty on it.
[10:58:33] <Bronz|work> If it falls apart after 2 uses, it's no good.
[11:00:13] <Churba> Well, I'll have to check it out in person, but aldi makes some surprisingly good tools. I've got a power-drill that's from aldi, one of the better drills I've had, must say.
[11:01:22] <Churba> They do have some crap tools, but they're usually the hand tools, which are often cheep forgings and low-quality tool steel.
[11:01:29] <Churba> cheap, rather
[11:15:31] -!- thatsatanicpony has quit [Quit: thatsatanicpony]
[11:35:13] <Churba> Friend of mine wants me to help her out with her irish punk drag act. Tempted.
[11:35:26] <Bronz|work> Wait, how would that even work?
[11:38:26] <Churba> Well, she wants to play the guy in this song - https://www.youtube.com
[11:38:32] <Churba> And she wants me to play the woman, in full regalia
[11:44:27] <Churba> "You look like Liza Graves and sing like stephanie dogherty, dear heart, how could I ask anyone else?"
[11:50:03] <Churba> For the record, I do not look THAT much like Liza Graves.
[11:50:10] <Churba> And you can quote me on that.
[11:55:31] <Churba> For reference - https://www.youtube.com
[12:00:14] <open_sketch> beeep
[12:00:17] <open_sketch> hi churba!
[12:01:33] -!- thatsatanicpony [thatsatanicpony!wryterra@1DA381D4.804EDFB7.B22E1190.IP] has joined #geeknights
[12:02:30] <Churba> Hey sketch!
[12:02:45] <open_sketch> whats up in churbaland
[12:03:17] <Churba> Ran an editing pass over game stuff, 150 pages worth of character gubbins, now it's got more red ink than the communist manifesto
[12:03:43] <Churba> Tempted to buy a powerfile on sale, because I could do with one
[12:03:57] <Churba> And a friend of mine wants me to help her out with her irish punk drag act as detailed above.
[12:04:05] <open_sketch> whoa wait
[12:04:13] <open_sketch> 150 pages wow :O
[12:04:23] <open_sketch> also reading up now
[12:04:54] <open_sketch> heh
[12:04:58] <open_sketch> thats hilarious
[12:05:10] <open_sketch> can i throw in an annoying internet "dooooooo ittt"
[12:05:15] <Churba> Yeah - when I'm doing character work, I like to smash out a bunch of history, facts and anecdotes to draw on. I don't use 90% of it.
[12:05:40] <Churba> Well, I do, but not as actual stuff-in-the-final-work using, just as reference
[12:05:51] <open_sketch> yeah i getcha
[12:06:17] <Churba> And the line about liza graves is copied direct from the chatlog in the other window
[12:06:31] <open_sketch> incredible :O
[12:06:35] <Churba> To be honest I'm pretty convinced by her pitch, looks like I need to borrow some fake tits
[12:07:30] <open_sketch> i am confident you will make it work
[12:07:51] <Churba> Cheeky bugger already sourced a white wig and started dying it half black. She knew what she was doing, rotten bloody tart.
[12:07:59] <open_sketch> sorry if my responses are sluggish and/or barely sensical, i've been awake for an unreasonably long amount of time :/
[12:08:12] <Churba> I am confident that it will be entertaining, at the least
[12:08:18] <open_sketch> heh
[12:08:18] <Churba> It's okay brother, I understand
[12:08:21] <open_sketch> one way or another
[12:08:38] <open_sketch> my sister is off to anime north this morning (she just left) and she's got a table there
[12:08:55] <Churba> To be fair, I kinda miss doing dumb theatre stuff like that, and she knows it. I think she's pushing for it for me as much as her.
[12:09:05] <open_sketch> mmhm
[12:09:08] <open_sketch> i know that feel
[12:09:13] <open_sketch> i miss public speaking
[12:09:18] <open_sketch> i used to do debate and presentation
[12:09:50] <open_sketch> and then i got that there panel at connecticon and i have reversed fully to "oh noooooooooo" mode
[12:10:32] <open_sketch> i hope you have fun and stuff
[12:10:38] <open_sketch> and i hope video is taken and you never live it down
[12:10:41] <open_sketch> :P
[12:12:33] <Churba> the only way I'd have to live it down is if I did a bad job, and baby, I've been doing this shit since I was six years old.
[12:12:48] <Churba> Wait, no, hang on
[12:13:08] <Churba> Math went wrong here, I was eight
[12:13:17] <open_sketch> lol
[12:14:39] <Churba> I'm fried and a bit wine-drunk, so I'm hardly in the state to do simple arithmatic. Or spelling, if I spelled that wrong.
[12:15:06] <open_sketch> man that's roughly the level im at 105% of the time math and spelling wise
[12:15:15] <open_sketch> i make my proofreaders cry routinely :P
[12:15:39] <open_sketch> for a person who writes games what use numbers, i can neither write nor number
[12:15:57] <Churba> s'why I do my own edit passes before I submit ANYTHING
[12:16:13] <open_sketch> i can't catch /shit/ when i edit myself
[12:16:38] <open_sketch> i think because i've read every line like fifty trillion times and rewrote it so fucking much trying to get it as dense as possible
[12:16:45] <open_sketch> that i just kind of glaze over
[12:16:52] <Churba> I propably shouldn't be writing now, in fact - as hemingway said, write drunk and edit sober, but there's a problem with that
[12:16:54] <open_sketch> my brain is just providing the info without my eyes being involved
[12:16:57] <Churba> I, sir, am no hemingway
[12:16:59] <open_sketch> heh
[12:17:19] <Churba> hahaha
[12:17:50] <Churba> asked laura if this was going to be like last time, and she said absolutely not.
[12:17:59] <Churba> Because last time, technically, I was only HALF in drag
[12:18:06] <open_sketch> :D
[12:18:59] <Bronz|work> Which half?
[12:19:03] <Churba> She pulled together her mate's band and played drums, and had me in that kind of half-men's suit half cocktail dress thing, hair up on one side, my hair on the other, doing both parts in Young Love by the mystery Jest
[12:19:06] <open_sketch> THE RIGHT QUESTION
[12:19:06] <Churba> Jets
[12:19:12] <Churba> ALSO THE RIGHT SIDE
[12:19:24] <open_sketch> so you were basically the dean from community?
[12:19:26] <open_sketch> thats excellent
[12:19:35] <Churba> I have no idea, never watched community
[12:20:39] <Churba> Moar Refernece songs!
[12:20:40] <Churba> https://www.youtube.com
[12:20:52] <open_sketch> so my sister is driving to toronto right now for anime north where she has a dealers table thingy
[12:20:57] <open_sketch> (she makes cosplay supplies)
[12:21:03] <open_sketch> and she approached me as was like
[12:21:08] <open_sketch> HEY you write stupid weeaboo games
[12:21:12] <open_sketch> we should sell some of those
[12:21:21] <Churba> YES!
[12:21:24] <open_sketch> and i was like yooooooo how we gonna sell a pdf at a con
[12:21:28] <open_sketch> WE FOUND A WAY
[12:21:33] <open_sketch> it is a dumb way but also awesome
[12:21:33] <Churba> Wat really
[12:21:37] <Churba> How dis?
[12:21:44] <open_sketch> so i printed out some samples
[12:21:45] <Churba> brb more wine
[12:21:51] <Bronz|work> USB sticks?
[12:22:00] <Bronz|work> Because y'know, you get a free USB stick.
[12:22:18] <open_sketch> and also a huge pile of cards with my email address on it, basically
[12:22:29] <open_sketch> and some official-looking lists for writing emails
[12:22:44] <open_sketch> and i have a system in drivethruRPG what lets me send complimentary copies to anyone whose email i have
[12:23:14] <Bronz|work> That works too...
[12:23:15] <open_sketch> gib money, insert email, get card. If copy of RPG does not get to you post-haste, my contact info is right there
[12:23:18] <open_sketch> it is not optimal
[12:23:25] <open_sketch> i would prefer steam-style codes
[12:23:43] <open_sketch> but drivethruRPG does not offer those because they are trogledytes
[12:26:34] <Churba> I return! With a pint of wine!
[12:26:36] <open_sketch> (USB sticks would be a waste because gams not that big and it would be more like "buy USB stick, free gam!" instead of "buy gam, get usb!"
[12:29:46] <Churba> Now I'm imaginging your sister, dressed up as a 1930s news tycoon, going "Alright ladies and gents, check out the gams on this one!" while waving around a handful of USB sticks
[12:30:13] <open_sketch> she would almost certainly do that
[12:30:47] <open_sketch> my sister is basically a cooler funnier better female version of myself and i know for a fact i would do that so she would /definately/ do that
[12:30:56] <Bronz|work> I found a plastic cup on my desk, and poured soda into it, now I can't remember if I was using it as a trashcan before.
[12:31:19] <open_sketch> TRASHSODATRASHSODATRASHSODA
[12:35:42] <Churba> There's only one way to find out
[12:36:43] <Bronz|work> Tasted fine.
[12:37:14] <Churba> Then all is forgiven, trash cup
[12:40:19] -!- thatsatanicpony has quit [Quit: thatsatanicpony]
[12:43:56] <Churba> Pony could not forgive trashcup
[12:47:04] <Bronz|work> It is understandable.
[12:47:24] <Bronz|work> I think I know where I got the cup from, btw. I threw trash cup away yesterday, this is a water cup.
[12:47:39] <Bronz|work> But y'know, can't be too careful? Except I drank from it so you can, I guess?
[12:54:33] -!- thatsatanicpony [thatsatanicpony!wryterra@1DA381D4.804EDFB7.B22E1190.IP] has joined #geeknights
[12:56:41] <Bronz|work> Thanks for coming back, Mr. Pony
[13:05:32] <Churba> THE TRASH CUP IS FORGIVEN
[13:05:46] <Bronz|work> Huzza?
[13:10:08] <Churba> Now we just have to form a post apocalyptic death cult around the trashcup as a living inanimate object god
[13:12:49] <Churba> Oh, and apply for a religious tax exemption. Think of the money we'll save!
[13:20:26] <Bronz|work> ... On what?
[13:20:41] <Bronz|work> I mean, I guess we could build a tax free trash cup altar
[13:21:49] <thatsatanicpony> Auto-connect makes it a rather foregone conclusion I’ll come back. :)
[13:22:35] <Bronz|work> If you left in disgust you wouldn't come back though, right?
[13:23:12] <thatsatanicpony> Depends if I remembered to disable the auto join before I started irc the next work day or not.
[13:37:22] <Bronz|work> That's fair.

[14:23:32] <Bronz|work> Hi yoshokatana
[14:24:21] <Bronz|work> Do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior, the trash cup?
[14:29:30] <yoshokatana> morning
[14:29:32] <yoshokatana> trash cup?
[14:35:54] <Bronz|work> Indeed!
[14:36:35] <Bronz|work> It's a cup which could've been used to store trash, but was used for soda.
[14:36:45] <Bronz|work> Sort of schrodingers cup, if you will
[14:50:09] <Apsup> Always nice to notice middle of cooking that it's getting kinda smoky around and hope that smoke alarms don't decide to nocie.
[14:55:58] <Bronz|work> This is why I don't have a smoke alarm in the kitchen.
[14:58:08] <Bronz|work> If whoever installed it was smart, they'd install a smoke alarm that can be silenced.
[14:58:19] <Bronz|work> There are smoke alarms where if you press a button, they won't warn you for the next 30 minutes
[14:58:49] <Apsup> IT's not in kitchen, it's in the main room, but they are right next to one another and there is no door.
[14:58:54] <Apsup> This is one room appartment.
[15:11:37] <Bronz|work> Hmm-mm.
[15:23:09] <Apsup> Well, I have gotten food in my system and that's all that matters.
[15:28:06] <Bronz|work> Hmm, I could go for some food...
