[07:48:16] <Apsup> Morning!
[08:50:12] <Bronz|work> Hello Apsup
[09:32:59] <Apsup> Hi hi.
[09:34:06] <Apsup> I have interview for potential work today. I'm nervous.
[09:38:13] <Bronz|work> Why? There's no reason someone wouldn't want you so I think you have the job in the bag.
[09:39:14] <Apsup> I have basically no resume, no degree, nothing to show for any potential skills I have. So I'm taking the approach "fake it till you make it" and hope that my skills at talking bullshit impresses them.
[09:44:24] <Bronz|work> Ok, well fair enough.
[09:44:40] <Bronz|work> Hey, if you want, I'll start a company, and I'll put you on the payroll.
[09:44:56] <Apsup> With what money?
[09:46:18] <Bronz|work> Ha, I won't pay you.
[09:46:27] <Bronz|work> C'mon, it's for experience
[09:46:30] <Bronz|work> You'll be the intern.
[09:46:41] <Apsup> Sure.

[12:55:44] -!- Aria_ [Aria_!Aria@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[12:56:12] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria.#
[12:56:25] <Bronz|work> *Aria_
[12:56:35] <Aria_> I've slept for 24 hours in the last 35 hours.
[12:56:58] <Bronz|work> Yeah, it's a little much, maybe?
[12:57:01] <Aria_> Yes.
[12:57:01] <Bronz|work> It sounds nice though
[12:57:18] <Aria_> I expected to be up pretty earily today, not being tired and all when I went to bed
[12:57:32] <Aria_> Actually, brb
[13:04:21] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[13:06:20] <Bronz|work> Hey Apsup.
[13:06:41] <Apsup> Hii.
[13:06:55] <Bronz|work> Aria_, Apsup is officiall an intern at Dr. Agon studios.
[13:11:04] <Apsup> That's nice to hear.
[13:14:05] <Aria_> We registered?
[13:14:09] <Aria_> Also we added studios to the end?
[13:14:28] <Aria_> Also what is he doing? Is he helping on Final Blade?
[13:14:30] Aria_ is now known as Aria
[13:15:07] <Aria> We need more sliceables. So if you have neat looking buildings that are sub 1000 faces, you should send them my way
[13:25:55] <Aria> Arms of Telos is in this Itch bundle.
[13:26:10] <Aria> I wonder how many of these other games are equally nowhere near done
[13:27:47] <Aria> >.> The only one I clicked to learn more turned out to be a fucking EP. Also apperantly it's short.
[13:32:23] <Bronz|work> EP?
[13:32:32] <Bronz|work> Extended Play?
[13:32:37] <Aria> Yes
[14:00:28] <Bronz|work> How goes it with ya?
[14:15:45] <Apsup> Talking to me or Aria?
[14:15:52] <Apsup> My job interview went well. I guess.
[14:16:09] <Apsup> He did say that I'm not a complete idiot. That's positive right?
[14:16:52] <Bronz|work> Did he actually say that?
[14:16:58] <Bronz|work> Because that's... I dunno, not encouraging?
[14:17:08] <Apsup> Maybe not those exact words.
[14:17:26] <Bronz|work> Ok, that sounds good.
[14:18:16] <Apsup> The context was about how when firms look for employees they usually ask for little much, but actually they are fine as long as the applicant is not a complete idiot.
[14:18:18] <Apsup> Something like that.
[14:20:29] <Aria> Oh you're interviewing at a real place?
[14:20:43] <Apsup> I hope it's real.
[14:20:47] <Aria> I thought Bronz|work convinced you to help us with our thing
[14:20:53] <Apsup> Maybe the building was a huge prop. I didn't check,
[14:21:38] <Apsup> Nah. That was in context of me having nothing in my CV, so Bronz tried to shove me an slave labor with you.
[14:21:50] <Aria> =P
[14:22:07] <Aria> Say you made a website that no longer exists
[14:22:12] <Apsup> It's not easy to go in interview and be like "yea, I have nothing to show to you people, just trust me that I'll be a good hire".
[14:22:31] <Aria> I mean, I did that
[14:23:46] <Aria> What kind of job is it?
[14:24:07] <Aria> Also I'm super hungry, but its 14:30, so I feel bad eating breakfast
[14:25:41] <Apsup> It's a firm that does software for energy providers. Not sure yet what I'd actually end up doing, but something in the software development process.
[14:26:30] <Aria> But then surely there can't be a situation where you have nothing to show?
[14:27:09] <Aria> You show code samples. You would show code samples if you've had many jobs too, I'd think
[14:30:21] <Bronz|work> Eat lunch?
[14:31:37] <Aria> Is Deus Ex Human Revolution the new one?
[14:32:04] <Aria> Nvm, Mankind Divided is the new one, and its 30 USD
[14:32:11] <Aria> That is not much of a sale
[14:32:57] <Aria> Also they have a product called Deux Ex Collection with a picture of the new guy on the cover, but it only comes with one of the two games he's in
[14:33:36] <Aria> There's a version of Final Fantasy 3 with 3D graphics?
[14:33:45] <Apsup> DS port
[14:34:01] <Apsup> made to PC and phone ports too
[14:34:03] <Aria> Ah right.
[14:35:00] <Aria> Type 0 Reishiki is 9 USD if you want it
[14:36:29] <Aria> They have a product called "Hitman The full Experience" or maybe "Hitman Enter a world of assassinations", it's not entirely clear
[14:36:40] <Aria> I'm not sure if that is the new one or a compilation pack
[14:37:31] <Aria> Sleepy Dogs 5 bucks, good deal
[14:48:39] <Aria> So I blocked out my living room in Blender and set the camera to 22mm, but it doesn't look right at all
[14:48:46] <Aria> The perspective and size of things
[14:54:55] <Aria> When I upgrade my graphics cards, I should have one extra HDMI so I don't need to unplug the TV to get the HMD working
[14:59:19] <Aria> Star Citizen is further away than I thought. Q4 2018 target
[14:59:57] <Aria> I was under the impression it was like Q4 2016 target, actually Q3 2017 kind of thing
[15:00:19] <Apsup> They keep getting more money so they need to do more for it.
[15:04:28] <Aria> Do people care as much about movie music as they care about game music?
[15:04:37] <Apsup> yes
[15:04:42] <Apsup> I guess.
[15:05:01] <Aria> Like with old games where its short and catchy, and there was only a handful of songs in the game I get growing fond of them
[15:05:17] <Bronz|work> C'mon, Mr. Harper has like, a section devoted to saying how much he loves soundtracks every video.
[15:05:42] <Aria> But it seems there's a tonne of concerts with like God of War and Red Dead Revolver music and such
[15:06:02] <Aria> This is true, but I figured he was strange, because I never remember any of it
[15:13:14] <Bronz|work> Hey aria, look at this grass: http://i.imgur.com
[15:13:40] <Aria> Aha?
[15:14:19] <Aria> I don't like it
[15:14:38] <Aria> It looks better in the distance
[15:15:36] <Bronz|work> It could work pretty well flying over from a distance.
[15:16:42] <Aria> Oh um.. that grass isn't super cheap
[15:17:13] <Aria> No what I'm gonna do is just noisy green texture with white wavey shimmer moving across all of it, similar to how you would do water
[15:17:56] <Aria> Then as you get close maybe switch it out for something else or swpan plane-grass on it
[15:18:48] <Bronz|work> Hmm, fair enough.
[15:27:45] <Aria> =P
[15:28:05] <Aria> Hayao Miyazaki stopped being retired
[15:46:32] <Bronz|work> Ah, right, THAT miyazaki.
[15:47:23] <Aria> Infinte Warfare is apperantly underperforming, but I mean
[15:48:08] <Aria> It's still the biggest seller of the year, with EA trying very hard to hurt it
[15:48:18] <Aria> In a year with Uncharted 4 and Overwatch
[15:52:31] <Bronz|work> I saw a lot of mean images on reddit about it.
[15:52:39] <Bronz|work> I guess a newsstory came out about it?
[15:53:37] <Aria> Yes. I assume Activision is not surprised at all about the sales
[15:54:15] <Bronz|work> Indeed.
[15:54:38] <Bronz|work> Also, what does underpreforming mean? Call of Duty had been growing player bases previous years.
[15:54:45] <Bronz|work> Did they not grow this year, or did they grow less?
[15:55:14] <Aria> Fewer sales than last year sounds like
[16:10:35] <Bronz|work> Do we have dinner for today? I think we might be out of stuff to cook.
[16:16:02] <Aria> Yes
[16:16:06] <Aria> We are
[16:16:53] <Aria> You should order some tesco/stop by the store
[16:17:15] <Bronz|work> Ok, I'll stop by the store.
[16:17:21] <Bronz|work> Is there anything in the fridge we should eat soon?
[16:18:28] <Aria> These beans say nov 19 on them but they're still good I think
[16:19:00] <Aria> Some parsnips
[16:19:31] <Aria> Paprika
[16:20:53] <Aria> I think this lettuce is bad
[16:21:40] <Bronz|work> We also have two half cabbages, if I rememember correctly.
[16:21:43] <Aria> We should eat this cucumber, because I like cucumber and it always goes bad before we it
[16:22:35] <Bronz|work> Hmm, ok.
[16:31:16] <Bronz|work> So the cucumber could go in a salad, with the bell peppers.
[16:32:31] <Aria> My blender light doesn't show up
[16:32:33] <Aria> I don't know why
[16:32:41] <Bronz|work> Are you in unlit view?
[16:32:52] <Bronz|work> Is the light on a different layer you're not rendering?
[16:33:02] <Bronz|work> Is it disabled/set real dim?
[16:34:17] <Bronz|work> Ok, I'm thinking Salad, Parsnip mash and some sort of meat+gravy, maybe?
[16:34:30] <Bronz|work> What kind of meat would be good? Classically, I'd think steak.
[16:34:35] <Bronz|work> But we can probably do better, right?
[16:58:05] <Aria> Um
[16:58:08] <Aria> Sorry for late reply?
[16:58:10] <Aria> Stake is fine
[16:58:16] <Aria> Um see you when you're home
[16:58:17] <Aria> Bye
[16:58:21] <Bronz|work> stake?
[16:58:24] <Bronz|work> Steak?
[16:58:27] <Aria> Yes
[16:58:44] <Bronz|work> Nah, I'll think of something you like.
[16:59:26] <Bronz|work> I would like it if the kitchen was somewhat cleaned up when I got home
[16:59:33] <Bronz|work> And also, I'm leaving, bye
