[06:56:25] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[07:27:03] <Apsup> Morning.
[07:34:33] <Bronz|work> How goes it?
[07:35:12] <Apsup> Fine fine.
[07:35:14] <Apsup> Woke up quite early.
[07:35:22] <Apsup> And then didn't get sleep anymore, so I got up.
[07:35:53] <Apsup> Watched couple episodes of The Next Generation, while grinding stuff in Final Fantasy XIV
[07:53:06] <Apsup> you be working, I assume?
[07:58:52] <Bronz|work> That's right.
[08:19:51] <Bronz|work> Today, IBM is celebrating 60 years in Ireland.
[08:20:20] <Bronz|work> They have a full days of activities and events planned at the main campus, and we get to take the bus over there for 1.5 hours.
[08:21:20] <Apsup> yaay, fun and games!
[08:21:44] <Bronz|work> Indeed, it'll be fun to not be here for a bit.
[08:21:58] <Apsup> As long as one of the games isn't "name your least productive co-worker".
[08:24:00] <Bronz|work> Depends, do I get a price?

[09:55:26] <Aria> Good morning
[09:55:30] <Bronz|work> Hello!
[09:55:33] <Apsup> Morning/almost afternoon.
[09:55:59] <Aria> Our house has a very nice atmosphere this morning
[09:56:13] <Aria> Very soft lighting
[09:56:20] <Bronz|work> Oh, nice.
[09:56:28] <Apsup> How's the feng shui?
[09:56:29] <Aria> And its 10 in UTC areas
[09:56:45] <Bronz|work> I don't want to ruin it, but can you at some point today take the laundry out?
[09:56:46] <Aria> Not so good, there is a trash bag by the door waiting to be taken out
[09:56:52] <Aria> Yeah
[10:05:12] <Aria> I Bullet Girls, you shoot at enemies for a full second with an automatic weapon, and all that happens is that their clothes get shredded and they kneel over in shame. No implication that the bullets might cause bodily harm
[10:05:16] <Aria> In*
[10:05:52] <Bronz|work> Well, there's bullets and there's girls.
[10:06:01] <Bronz|work> It's not called "bodily harm simulator"
[10:06:07] <Aria> Fair enough
[10:06:20] <Aria> Don't get me wrong, I think its a good approach. I was just surprised
[10:07:59] <Bronz|work> I was gonna link you an /r/darksouls post, but then I saw the top comment was you.
[10:08:07] <Aria> =P
[10:10:44] <Bronz|work> Eh, fuck it. This post is cool: https://www.reddit.com
[10:10:51] <Bronz|work> I really love the four kings.
[10:12:55] <Apsup> I'm way too bothered by the way Reddits generally dislike self-promotion, so instead of doing the obvious thing and posting a thing that's just a imgur link, people make a textpost with just the link in it.
[10:13:34] <Aria> I think it's a case of the guy didn't figure out the UI/posted it wrong
[10:16:44] <Bronz|work> Actually, in /r/darksouls, direct links aren't allowed
[10:16:55] <Aria> Why?
[10:16:59] <Bronz|work> There's no option to submit one because the CSS is disabled.
[10:17:11] <Bronz|work> It's to discourage shitposting where you just post a funny picture.
[10:17:22] <Bronz|work> And encourage discussions.
[10:17:34] <Bronz|work> (I assume)
[10:17:38] <Apsup> And you just linked me to a funny picture.
[10:18:18] <Apsup> Though it's a thing that I've ranted before. Reddit is a tool, originally made for people to share links to thing and get internet points from that and making most popular links to show up longer.
[10:18:39] <Apsup> Then people turned it into some general forum, which it's not build for.
[10:19:29] <Aria> It works fine as a general forum
[10:26:27] <Aria> But I don't like the link sorting
[10:26:46] <Aria> It should show me new stuff every hour, not once a day
[10:30:03] <Aria> Hey Apsup, how do you fortify a city against flying troops?
[10:30:15] <Apsup> With a roof?
[10:30:27] <Aria> What's the roof made out of
[10:30:28] <Apsup> Anti-air systems and underground bunkers, probably.
[10:30:38] <Aria> Also who wants to live without sunlight?
[10:30:53] <Aria> Oh sorry, European fantasy setting, yknow, LotR and stuff
[10:31:00] <Bronz|work> Also, building an underground city would suck.
[10:31:02] <Aria> So underground bunkers are too costly
[10:31:13] <Apsup> Well, basically, if enemy flies, you are fucked.
[10:31:21] <Bronz|work> You could definetly dig the foundation in.
[10:32:06] <Apsup> Also, I was about to say that I kinda have opposite problem with news aggregators on that timing stuff. If I check news once a day, I want to see the most important stuff that has happened, not what happened in last 30 minutes.
[10:37:07] <Bronz|work> You need a timing slider.
[10:39:45] <Aria> What it needs is a refresh button
[10:40:46] <Bronz|work> Reddit does have the "Rising" tab.
[10:41:04] <Aria> Oh? maybe I should check that next time
[10:46:47] <Aria> So apperantly, and I can't confirm this, but Game of Thrones has dragons and does not alter the design of their fortifications because of it
[10:46:54] <Aria> They don't even have roof over the battlements
[10:47:14] <Aria> Also GoT dragons don't use wings to fly, they fly with *magic*
[10:47:18] <Aria> Even though they have wings
[10:47:32] <Aria> Which makes no sense, why would you not have arms then!?
[10:47:35] <Bronz|work> Well, yeah, but also, they're super rare?
[10:47:49] <Aria> Also their fire is so warm it melts rocks
[10:47:50] <Apsup> But in GoT dragons were a thing of "we don't have those thing here, not anymore at least. Oh shit actual dragons, didn't see that coming".
[10:48:15] <Aria> How long since the last dragon attack?
[10:48:20] <Aria> Like 100 years?
[10:48:47] <Aria> That's recent enough that if you're putting all your money into building town defenses, you should still account for dragons
[10:49:12] <Apsup> Well, how do you account for dragons then?
[10:50:38] <Aria> I don't know, I'm trying to figure it out. Was hoping that the second biggest fantasy IP would've done the work for me
[10:51:04] <Aria> These people on the internet is suggesting Eva strats
[10:51:24] <Aria> Put the city on rails, hollow out a mountain, during war, roll into the mountain
[10:51:47] <Aria> Which is crazy impractical given the tech level, or current day tech
[10:53:09] <Aria> Also why not fly with wings!?
[11:26:49] <Aria> One guy suggested smoke, which I think is a very good idea
[11:27:18] <Apsup> Because dragons are big, too big to reasonably fly with wings. And for some reason people have started to give a shit about realism in their fantasy.
[11:27:41] <Aria> "A wizard did it" is not a solution to that problem!
[11:28:11] <Aria> If you want magical flying dragons, go all in and give them arms
[11:28:17] <Aria> Or helicopter blades
[11:28:32] <Aria> Or make them lean/hollow
[11:33:15] <Aria> What if you put your griffin in a cage, so they're arrow proof, but air still goes through so they can still fly
[11:34:23] <Aria> I guess at the point where arrows won't go through the cage grid openings by default, your ability to sour and push air will also be gone.
[11:56:18] <Aria> Someone ported Red Alert 2 to VR
[11:56:21] <Aria> It looks really good
[13:01:45] <Bronz|work> =o
[13:01:50] <Bronz|work> I'm back, btw
[13:02:01] <Bronz|work> Back from Campus, where I ate cake and drank soda.
[13:02:17] <Aria> Was it fun?
[13:04:45] <Bronz|work> It was loud, but the parts that weren't loud were nice.
[13:05:27] <Bronz|work> I had Haakon and Tor (new guy) with me.
[13:05:30] <Bronz|work> They were cool
[13:06:22] <Bronz|work> http://i.imgur.com
[13:33:17] <Bronz|work> I had some food at campus, but it was a small amount
[13:33:26] <Bronz|work> I think I'm going to be hungry before I get home.
[13:33:32] <Aria> I ate pizza breads
[13:33:39] <Aria> They burnt my mouth
[13:33:50] <Bronz|work> =O
[14:24:04] <Aria> https://www.reddit.com
[14:24:16] <Aria> It generated pronouncable names
[14:35:39] <Bronz|work> Sort by new for best results
[14:36:09] <Aria> I should have grates for a floor in the largest squares, with spikes underneath
[14:36:34] <Aria> So when there is a siege, they can add spikes to the square and prevent landing there
[14:37:13] <Aria> Actually that doesn't seem reasonable..
[14:39:29] <Bronz|work> Nah, but i could totally see roll-out matts with spikes instead.
[14:39:40] <Bronz|work> Large straw/leather rolls with spikes.
[14:39:50] <Aria> Yeah
[14:39:52] <Bronz|work> Or just thow a bunch of calthropes, maybe?
[14:40:23] <Aria> Well you need it to be easy to clean up. I mean, they don't get attacked often
[14:40:47] <Bronz|work> But why make it easy to clean up then?
[14:40:54] <Bronz|work> Since it doesn't happen often, taht's fine.
[14:40:56] <Aria> But if they do, the chance of attackers getting into the city and fucking shit up is a lot lower than being attacked exclusively by ground units
[14:41:51] <Bronz|work> Maybe cables/nets would be hung between houses.
[14:42:09] <Bronz|work> To catch any objects thrown down, and to prevent landings/
[14:42:58] <Aria> Another guy suggested that just now
[14:43:07] <Aria> It's good
[15:17:21] <Aria> YouTube comments look different
[15:17:23] <Aria> Its better
[15:22:59] <Bronz|work> Looks the same as always
[15:23:21] <Aria> Its roomier
[15:30:20] <Aria> Go home
