[03:38:46] -!- Apsup has quit [Ping timeout: 180 seconds]
[07:00:32] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[07:26:38] -!- MrBRAD [MrBRAD!Brad@56229793.1C231755.52EDAB93.IP] has joined #geeknights
[07:28:36] <Bronz|work> Hi MrBRAD.
[07:47:16] <MrBRAD> oh hello there
[07:47:40] <Bronz|work> How goes?
[07:48:21] <MrBRAD> mmmhhh not too bad
[07:48:26] <MrBRAD> how are you?
[07:54:53] <Bronz|work> Pretty good, thanks for asking.
[08:32:01] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@Clk-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[08:41:39] <Apsup> Mornin'
[08:49:00] <Bronz|work> hi Apsup.
[09:06:32] -!- Aria [Aria!Aria@Clk-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[09:06:36] <Aria> Hi
[09:06:45] <Bronz|work> Oh there you are.
[09:06:48] <Apsup> Oh hi!
[09:07:06] <Aria> How is today?
[09:07:15] <Bronz|work> So far so good.
[09:07:29] <Bronz|work> Why did you join 2 hours after I got to work?
[09:07:53] <Aria> Cause I was doing other stuff
[09:08:08] <Bronz|work> Fair enough.
[09:08:13] <Bronz|work> Glad you're here now.
[09:08:52] <Bronz|work> I asked Spotify for Ska, and instead it's giving me punk (and adverts).
[09:08:55] <Aria> That guy that does all the Tekken moves in his garage is pretty cool
[09:09:13] <Aria> You really should give up on Spotify
[09:09:39] <Bronz|work> I should, but when it's weekend, I wanna spend time with you instead of setting up Google/Amazon music
[09:10:11] <Aria> No, switch to a piracy solution
[09:10:39] <Bronz|work> I don't have a lot of storage on my device, and what piracy service is going to stream music to me?
[09:10:45] <Aria> Because the other legit ones won't have a larger selection than Spotify
[09:11:12] <Aria> Pirate onto Heihachi or Yoshi then stream to work
[09:11:46] <Bronz|work> Well, I don't want to use Yoshi, coz it'd have to be on the whole time.
[09:11:51] <Aria> Or spend the 10 bucks you spend on Spotify on a VPS
[09:12:04] <Bronz|work> That's the real solution.
[09:12:21] <Bronz|work> Having a VPS could be fun.
[09:12:30] <Bronz|work> I'd end up not using it at all though, probably.
[09:12:51] <Aria> It's to replace Spotify. If you replace Spotify you're getting your money's worth
[09:13:44] <Aria> Also, "What piracy service is going to stream music to me?": YouTube
[09:14:34] <Aria> YouTube has all the songs you complain about not having on Spotify and very good tech for auto playlists
[09:16:25] <Bronz|work> That's true, I'll have to find some sort of advert free version of Youtube.
[09:16:54] <Aria> They have a thing for that. YouTube Red
[09:17:00] <Aria> Alternatively an adblocker
[09:24:02] <Aria> I paid the TV license
[09:24:05] <Aria> It was 160 euro
[09:26:43] <Bronz|work> Ireland ought to stream music to me.
[09:26:55] <Aria> Yes, I agree
[09:27:16] <Aria> Like, if we're paying for RTE, they should provide some way for us to watch it
[09:27:31] <Bronz|work> I think they stream it online for free.
[09:28:04] <Aria> I can't figure out how to watch it
[09:28:32] <Aria> I found it. They're showering "Danger Mouse"
[09:28:37] <Aria> WHich is a cartoon about mice
[09:28:47] <Aria> Actually neither of hese characters are mice
[09:28:54] <Aria> I question these physics..
[09:29:52] <Aria> There was a fan blowing this guy. So he held onto a tree not to get blow away. SInce the tree is connected to the earth, the earth started spinning real fast
[09:30:07] <Aria> Also now they're in the future and the earth has a beard.
[09:30:21] <Bronz|work> ...
[09:30:26] <Bronz|work> That sounds pretty good.
[09:30:41] <Aria> So I notice this is RTE2. How do I watch RTE1?
[09:59:04] <Bronz|work> I don't know?
[10:38:18] <Aria> Audtion has a thing, or is getting a thing, where you can transcribe a voice clip
[10:39:43] <Aria> Then edit the words, and the audio will change to match your transcript
[10:41:00] <Aria> Ok, not quite. The demo was faked a bit. It needs about 20m of audio before it can recreate your voice convincingly
[10:45:05] <Bronz|work> Still, that's mighty impressive.
[10:45:15] <Aria> For sure
[11:15:39] <Aria> The SAG AFTRA website is very unprofessional
[11:16:44] -!- Aria [Aria!Aria@Clk-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has parted #geeknights
[11:16:49] -!- Aria [Aria!Aria@Clk-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[11:19:20] <Bronz|work> What is SAG AFTRA?
[11:19:37] <Aria> Voice actor union in the USA
[11:19:58] <Aria> They want royalties on game sales because Hollywood has royalties on movie sales
[11:20:33] <Bronz|work> Ah, but don't they know that isn't the case for most hollywood actors?
[11:20:47] <Bronz|work> Only the 5 or so people that appear on the posters?
[11:20:52] <Aria> They also want better standard practises for stunt work when doing mocap and for long shouty sessions. But those things the game companies don't object to
[11:21:39] <Aria> Video games only have five actors total, so problem solved. Everybody gets royalties !
[11:22:29] <Bronz|work> I mean...
[12:24:48] <Aria> I'm sleepy to the point where I'm uncomfortable. But if I sleep now, I'll probably not be able to sleep at 23-24
[12:26:18] <Bronz|work> Oh that sucks.
[12:29:53] <Aria> Are we ever watching Nobunaga the Fool?
[12:30:10] <Aria> Its 40GB. I would like to delete it if we're never watching it
[12:34:37] <Bronz|work> eehhh, I wouldn't be sad never watching it.
[12:34:47] <Aria> Yeah but--
[12:34:53] <Aria> I have 40GB to spare
[12:35:03] <Aria> I don't have to delete it
[12:35:56] <Bronz|work> That's true...
[12:36:11] <Bronz|work> Is it worth your time to consider it in the future?
[12:36:28] <Aria> No, and I have hours of video stuff left to watch
[12:36:32] <Aria> I'll delete it
[12:36:39] <Bronz|work> Ok, sounds fine.
[12:39:53] <Bronz|work> Did you know? Gnu actually stands for Glorious Richard Stallman.
[12:40:00] <Bronz|work> ... no
[12:40:18] <Bronz|work> Glorious Richard Stallman ...nu
[12:40:52] <Aria> Yeah alright
[12:41:44] <Bronz|work> I got my P60 today
[12:42:00] <Aria> Weren't you meant to get that years ago?
[12:44:31] <Bronz|work> Well, I got 2016's
[12:44:36] <Bronz|work> Because, y'know, new year?
[12:45:08] <Aria> Wait is that how that works? But I don't think I ever got more than one of those
[12:47:38] <Bronz|work> You're supposed to get one every year, and when you stop working.
[12:53:20] <Aria> I want Nintendo games at 4K
[12:54:43] <Aria> Nowadays you can get a 980 equivalent for Switch price range right?
[12:57:03] <Aria> Yeah okay not quite. But not much more. Something like 300 for the graphics, and then you bundle it with a 100 euro computer, sell it for 450
[12:57:24] <Bronz|work> Yup.
[12:57:33] <Aria> Not that a 980 can produce 4K games or anything =P
[12:57:56] <Aria> But at least it'll be better than the other two consoles
[12:58:08] <Aria> Actually, you know what I wish Nintendo would do?
[12:58:15] <Aria> Just buy Scorpio's
[12:58:25] <Aria> Like, rebranded obviously. But just go AMD and say they want the same thing
[12:59:22] <Aria> Because Xbox Scorpio has to be Xbox One (2013) compatible, so the games on it can't look that good
[13:00:39] <Aria> Also the Wii U games already look better than what the other people are doing, so if they had the same hardware, it would be double good
[13:01:06] <Aria> And if its almost entirely the same hardware and using similar software to the PS4, porting becomes easy
[13:01:29] <Aria> I know gamecube didn't work out, even though that was the same thing of having slightly better graphics
[13:02:03] <Aria> But that's because PS2 and Xbox were never back then. nintendo will be novel now, because they haven't been competitive for the last 2 consoles
[13:02:28] <Aria> Also I think the edge would be more apparent
[13:03:25] <Aria> Just want to make it clear that I don't think that's the best way to earn money, but the best way to make me not be angry that Nintendo games aren't on PC.
[13:09:02] <Bronz|work> Oh, btw, you gave me the wrong set of keys.
[13:09:23] <Apsup> Why should Nintendo care if you are angry?
[13:09:43] <Aria> If I don't beat their games, I won't buy the DLCs
[13:10:12] <Aria> Though the reason I actually don't beat the games isn't because of aliasing, it's because they're too damn long
[13:10:34] <Aria> Mario 3D World had like 6 layers of secret bonus ending
[13:10:51] <Aria> And possibly more, the last two stages I unlocked are impossible
[13:11:52] <Bronz|work> So I'm reading the reviews of "The last Dragon chronicles #1", and everyone is complaining that the story is instead about squirrels.
[13:12:00] <Bronz|work> This sounds pretty good actually, when you put it like that.
[13:13:59] <Apsup> I was about to counter argue you, but I got 3D land and 3D world mixed. I 100% 3D land in 10 hours, which isn't really too long.
[13:14:19] <Aria> Haven't played that one.
[13:14:38] <Apsup> It's the one on 3DS. One of the few games that do something with the 3D.-
[13:14:59] <Aria> I know of it, I just don't have a 3DS
[13:15:10] <Aria> Well I do, but I don't use it
[13:40:34] <Aria> I should finish Valkyria RTS before the new one comes out
[13:41:28] <Aria> Valkyria Chornicles I meant. I guess that's not an RTS
[13:42:05] <Apsup> You know it already has two sequels, so you are a bit late already.
[13:42:18] <Aria> It does?!
[13:42:25] <Aria> There was one on PSP
[13:42:30] <Apsup> Two on PSP.
[13:42:33] <Aria> Oh ok
[13:42:43] <Aria> Weren't the ones on PSP not bad?
[13:42:56] <Aria> -bad
[13:43:01] <Aria> -not sorry
[13:43:05] <Aria> Weren't the ones on PSP bab
[13:43:08] <Aria> god damnit
[13:43:09] <Aria> Bad
[13:43:11] <Apsup> Not sorry bad-bad?
[13:43:43] <Aria> I'll try again
[13:44:06] <Aria> I was under the impression the games on PSP were disappointing and could safely be skipped
[13:44:49] <Apsup> Depends. The core gameplay is still there. Though the maps were small and had disappointing amounts of repeptition, even across the two games.
[13:52:34] <Aria> Was the only art you had of him pointing a knife in my face? https://youtu.be
[13:52:53] <Aria> (You shouldn't watch the video, just the first second)
[14:23:34] <Aria> A minute ago I decided that I might be able to stay up until 19-20
[14:23:40] <Aria> But now I'm very much doubting that
[14:29:39] <Bronz|work> Well, the longer you stay up, the better?
[14:29:51] <Aria> Is it?
[14:30:55] <Aria> If I take a nap now vs at 16, won't the result be the same at 23 when I actually want to sleep?
[14:33:33] <Bronz|work> If you take a nap, yes.
[14:33:39] <Bronz|work> If you try to properly sleep, no
[14:34:14] <Bronz|work> If you fall asleep at 16, and wake up at 00.00, that's better than sleeping now and waking up at 22.00
[14:53:28] <Aria> Godzilla is not lovecraft inspired!
[15:03:26] <Aria> Some people say "yoke" as joke?
[15:04:05] <Bronz|work> Do they?
[15:11:24] <Aria> The 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time put arrows on the walls in the dungeons
[15:29:14] <Bronz|work> 'k time to go home
[15:29:20] <Bronz|work> Cya when I get there 'n stuff
[15:29:25] <Aria> Yeah
[15:29:48] <Bronz|work> gonna miss my next bus.
[15:30:03] <Aria> Better hurry
[15:30:03] <Bronz|work> Guess I'll just hoof it.
