[09:56:36] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria.
[09:56:46] <Aria> Hi
[09:56:52] <Aria> There was a key in bed?
[09:57:13] <Aria> I was really confused
[09:57:14] <Bronz|work> I don't think so, why?
[09:57:22] <Aria> But I guess it mustve fallen out of your pocket
[09:57:27] <Bronz|work> Probably then.
[09:57:48] <Bronz|work> probably is the trash key then.
[09:57:57] <Bronz|work> Also, I was late for work.
[09:58:00] <Aria> Yup
[09:58:10] <Bronz|work> But Therese had forgotten to ask me if I wanted to cover the late shift
[09:58:15] <Bronz|work> So I agreed to do that.
[09:58:20] <Bronz|work> So that worked out...?
[09:58:41] <Bronz|work> I'll be working until 5PM today and tomorrow
[09:58:42] <Aria> Hrm?
[09:58:47] <Aria> Oh ok
[09:58:48] <Aria> Sure
[09:58:51] <Aria> THats alright
[10:13:29] <Bronz|work> It's BBQ day today in the cafeteria.
[10:13:37] <Aria> Thats cool
[10:26:17] -!- Apsup [Apsup!~Aleksi@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[10:26:26] <Bronz|work> hi Apsup.
[10:26:51] <Apsup> hi
[10:29:37] <Apsup> Rains outside. :[
[10:29:47] <Apsup> I have need for going to the store.
[10:29:53] <Apsup> This is unoptimal.
[10:30:45] <Bronz|work> Can you delay until the weather parameters shift?
[10:31:19] <Apsup> forsecast says rain until Monday evening.
[10:31:22] <Apsup> No I can't.
[10:31:40] <Bronz|work> Yeah, that's a bit long to wait.
[10:32:12] <Apsup> Also, I have other needs to get out of the house before that, so I would have to face the weather anyways.
[10:33:31] <Bronz|work> Fair enough.
[10:34:00] <Apsup> but it's not like I need to go to the store this second, so I can wait for a while.
[10:34:19] <Apsup> Maybe there is a break in the rain and I can avoid getting wet.
[10:44:48] <Bronz|work> Yeah, that seems like the thing to do.
[10:45:00] <Bronz|work> What if, though, what if it gets worse?
[10:45:26] <Apsup> Well, such is life. Taking risks is part of it.
[10:58:32] <Bronz|work> You crazy man, you stand to get wet! Will you not think of the children!
[14:13:30] <Aria> There's a new Sniper Elite
[14:13:45] <Aria> Framerate seems to be even worse
[14:13:52] <Bronz|work> Oh that reminds me of something entirely unrelated.
[14:14:01] <Aria> And on console it tears pretty much constantly
[14:14:05] <Bronz|work> Can you put the lamb in the oven for me, aria?
[14:14:11] <Bronz|work> it needs an hour, I think?
[14:14:12] <Aria> Sure
[14:14:34] <Bronz|work> If you can manage it, it could probably use a little salt before you throw it in, but then it should be good.
[14:14:58] <Aria> Alright
[14:15:39] <Aria> Maybe they finally put in the obvious feature of letting you always have the slow motion
[14:15:49] <Aria> God damnit EA
[14:15:52] <Aria> AMD is up a bit
[14:15:57] <Bronz|work> We don't have the technology yet.
[14:16:33] <Aria> ...
[14:16:40] <Aria> It has a thing now that tells you where to shoot
[14:16:44] <Aria> So it has drop and wind
[14:17:08] <Aria> But you don't need to worry about it, because there is a marker that shows you exactly where to shoot if you want to hit his head
[14:18:14] <Bronz|work> Pretty sure 2 had that too, on the second easiest difficulty
[14:18:24] <Bronz|work> (easiest being the bullet goes straight
[14:18:57] <Aria> But how is that different from the bullets going straight?
[14:19:57] <Bronz|work> It's not in terms of actual difficulty
[14:20:07] <Bronz|work> but it does in terms of observed skill.
[14:20:27] <Bronz|work> it feels more skillful if you see that you have to account for wind and drop, even if you don't actually.
[14:21:05] <Aria> I suppose
[14:21:36] <Aria> Oh ok, so the thing that shows you were to hit is actually larger than the guys head
[14:21:50] <Aria> You need to hold your breathe for it to shrink down to a point
[14:22:10] <Aria> However, it shrinks to the middle of the box, so it doesn't really seem like that matters either
[14:25:40] <Aria> Stupid EA
[14:25:49] <Bronz|work> =(
[14:26:26] <Bronz|work> So you know the little shoulder thing I had? I think it tore, because I felt a pinch, and now there's some blood.
[14:26:34] <Bronz|work> No plasters either.
[14:26:55] <Aria> =/
[14:27:34] <Bronz|work> So now I'm sitting here with a napkin under my shirt.
[14:29:20] <Aria> Is it bleeding a lot?
[14:30:06] <Bronz|work> Nah, not too badly.
[14:35:35] <Apsup> Trying to estimate a budget for a game development is hard. Good thing that apparently the lecturer of this course doesn't care too much, so I can probably just throw number out of my hat and it'll be fine.
[14:38:42] <Aria> What game?
[14:39:58] <Apsup> Not a real game. As a course project we just need to make a presentation that could be used to ask money from publishers and such.
[14:40:19] <Bronz|work> Oh, I don't think anybody has actually seriously budgetet a game correctly.
[14:40:49] <Apsup> Well, even the person runnin the course pretty much told us to ask way more than we think we need.
[14:40:49] <Aria> Eh, I bet all the EA Sports games are budgeted correctly
[14:41:47] <Bronz|work> Ok, yeah, those probably
[14:43:14] <Apsup> But even if the budget doesn't need to be exact I'd still like it to be somewhat reasoned.
[14:43:37] <Aria> Sure. So whats your game, who's making it and what are you asking for?
[14:44:02] <Bronz|work> Just go to a random kickstarter, and copy their budget.
[14:44:12] <Bronz|work> done-o
[14:44:20] <Aria> ..
[14:44:23] <Aria> Don't do that
[14:44:28] <Aria> Since they all ask for too little
[14:44:41] <Aria> And then also have 80% of their money coming from other places
[14:50:21] <Aria> https://twitter.com
[14:53:43] <Bronz|work> I feel this is acceptable if ん is a seperate word.
[14:53:46] <Bronz|work> I can't tell though.
[14:53:57] <Aria> It isn't,
[14:54:45] <Bronz|work> Then fuck that shit.
[15:25:35] <plugmyduck> Day 2 of VPN problems at work. this is... fun
[15:27:28] <Bronz|work> I dunno, that does not sound fun at all
[15:27:32] <Bronz|work> You have weird ideas of fun.
[15:28:07] <Aria> I mean, an excuse not to work is alright
[15:29:46] <Bronz|work> He's the IT guy though.
[15:33:31] <Aria> ]Hey Apsup
[15:33:56] <Aria> If you're gonna get a VR HMD
[15:34:18] <Aria> And also you have a wheel setup
[15:34:52] <Aria> I recommend trying stereo F-Zero GX
[15:35:24] <Aria> Or yknow, if you have a 3D TV that works too I guess
[15:43:33] <Bronz|work> 3D TV? More like BORING TV.
[15:44:18] <Apsup> Sure, but I don't think that advice is relevant for me any time soon.
[15:45:00] <Aria> If you have a 2D TV, I also recommend F-Zero GC
[15:45:01] <Aria> GX
[15:45:05] <Bronz|work> https://www.reddit.com
[15:45:43] <Aria> You tried.
[15:47:18] <Bronz|work> Aww, that's how I felt too!
[15:54:11] <Aria> Don't miss your buss
[15:54:22] <Aria> With one s in English
[15:55:22] <Bronz|work> Indeeder.
[15:56:57] <Bronz|work> Don't forget the lamb.
[15:57:15] <Aria> Oh the lamb is done by now I would guess
[17:37:02] <Apreche> How do I remember this thing for more than 5 minutes at a time?
[17:43:04] <Aria> By having it be interesting
[17:43:26] <Aria> If you forget the channel exists, it's probably not a very good channel
[17:43:55] <Aria> Or you can do what I do, and set notificatons for when people talk
[17:44:54] <Apreche> I have enough notifications.
[17:53:40] <Apsup> Talk more, lurk less and you are more likely to come back more often.
