[06:54:23] <Bronz|work> Hello.
[06:54:38] <Aria> Hi!
[06:56:43] <Aria> Apparently if you search for 'asshole' on twitter in the USA it takes you to Donald Trump's account or asks "Did you mean *" or something
[06:57:36] <Bronz|work> Oh.
[06:58:03] <Bronz|work> Is it because people tweet "@trump is an asshole" a lot?
[06:58:21] <Aria> Probably
[06:58:49] <Aria> Also everyone is super upset that he's 'starting a major investigation into voter fraud' and I'm not entirely sure why
[06:59:24] <Aria> Like, smart people say there is none. Fair enough, so then it'll be a waste of time. But that's it, right?
[07:00:59] <Bronz|work> "Trump is mad about voter fraud because his "friend" saw Latino people vote"
[07:02:47] <Aria> This is pretty good https://pbs.twimg.com
[07:03:44] <Bronz|work> Ok, basically, Trump is pushing super hard for getting restrictions on Latino votes
[07:04:01] <Bronz|work> They don't "Look American" and therefor are surely not elligible to vote, right?
[07:04:23] <Bronz|work> The republicans are super in favour for this in theory, because most of those people vote Democrat.
[07:04:32] <Bronz|work> And you can see why people are upset about it, right?
[07:04:41] <Aria> Those are two different things
[07:04:43] <Aria> But okay
[07:05:13] <Aria> Also New Super Mario Bros. 1, the one on the DS
[07:05:15] <Aria> Original DS
[07:05:51] <Aria> Is getting a patch because China complained about something
[07:08:46] <Bronz|work> Trump's friend saw some Latino people vote, and there were so many, that trump's friend couldn't vote.
[07:09:03] <Bronz|work> I should mention, Mr. Trump's friend isn't even elligible to vote, since he's a German citizen.
[07:09:25] <Bronz|work> Trump is upset that those Latino people surely came from South America to illigally participate in the vote.
[07:09:41] <Bronz|work> (Even though there's no evidence at all of that)
[07:10:54] <Aria> Is the anecdote about the friend true/confirmed?
[07:11:13] <Bronz|work> Friend is "unavaiable for comment", says Vice.com
[07:11:18] <Bronz|work> Didn't look into it further.
[07:11:36] <Bronz|work> Though, the friend, in the story, saw the line and then was "Eh, fuck that, I'm not waiting that long"
[07:11:38] <Aria> So that means friend is a real person who can be asked to comment, at least
[07:12:14] <Bronz|work> Here's an article, it takes 2 minutes to read if you want to know: https://www.nytimes.com
[07:12:23] <Aria> Sure
[07:13:18] <Bronz|work> Also, the way I hear people at work talk about money, it seems the way we live is not the norm.
[07:13:45] <Bronz|work> Apperantly, my co-workers actually live pay-check to pay-check here.
[07:14:10] <Aria> I mean, we're not doing great either. We've just been kinda ignoring it for a while
[07:15:55] <Bronz|work> Hey, if I get fired, I will have enough time to find another job.
[07:16:21] <Aria> That's fair
[07:17:12] <Bronz|work> These people have less than one pay-check in their account. I have 15 paychecks in my account.
[07:17:21] <Bronz|work> I feel that's a lot more healthy
[07:17:37] <Aria> If 15 is the real number, that is not nearly enough
[07:17:45] <Aria> But yes, definitely
[07:19:48] <Bronz|work> I mean, I think so. I would write out the math here, but you'd get upset for doxing myself
[07:20:27] <Aria> Right.
[07:21:28] <Aria> If you apply for a job somewhere, it would be pretty easy to find the logs for this, and then offer you only slightly more than you earn now
[07:22:00] <Bronz|work> FRCBot is actually here, logging things.
[07:22:33] <Bronz|work> Uhm... thanks FRCBot?
[07:22:39] <Aria> ...? Didn't Apreche right FRCBot?
[07:22:46] <Aria> Why is it sending out the resume for Chris Oliver
[07:23:12] <Bronz|work> *write
[07:23:25] <Aria> write yes sorry
[07:23:37] <Aria> Where's Apsup?
[07:26:21] <Apsup> Here. Good morning.
[07:26:29] <Bronz|work> Oh hi Apsup
[07:26:41] <Aria> Chris Oliver looks just like a fat version of Oliver Frankze
[07:27:18] <Aria> http://www.p1xelcoder.com
[07:27:39] <Aria> https://youtu.be (guy in corner)
[07:36:27] <Aria> FRCBot test
[07:36:41] <Aria> Hrm.
[07:37:02] <Aria> So don't start sentence with FRCBot I guess
[07:38:34] <Bronz|work> FRCBot; I do what I want!
[07:53:50] <Aria> I feel like making a Sims house. But mostly I want to sleep. I wonder if standing up will make me tired more or less quickly
[07:56:53] <Bronz|work> I think it'll exhaust you more, but that's a seperate slider.
[07:57:08] <Bronz|work> While you're standing up, you'll feel less tired, but when you sit down, you'll feel more tired.
[07:57:19] <Aria> Oh no

[08:13:31] <Bronz|work> Sharekespeare is really ahead of his time.
[08:39:39] <Aria> Bioware has 1000+ people
[08:40:03] <Aria> How can they possibly afford that?
[08:43:43] <Aria> I have to imagine if only one of their games get cancelled post production, they're completely fucked
[08:44:15] <Aria> I guess they're owned by EA, which is how they can afford it
[08:53:31] <Aria> I'm watching those Stark Trek extras. They are extremely disappointing
[08:54:21] <Aria> Okay so--
[08:54:33] <Aria> I was hoping they would talk about behind the scenes stuff
[08:54:39] <Bronz|work> Ok, about Bioware.
[08:54:50] <Bronz|work> Remember when EA rebranded every studio as Bioware?
[08:55:00] <Aria> No?
[08:55:00] <Bronz|work> I think that might help with the inflation of that number.
[08:55:26] <Aria> So 1000 people did not make Dragon Age Inquisition and Mass Effect Andromeda between them?
[08:55:35] <Bronz|work> For example: http://www.gamasutra.com
[08:56:05] <Aria> I was hoping for stuff like how they did the effects, how they come up with designs and narratives, yeah? Instead they're just talking about the movie, as if they hadn't made it. The same kind of talking you expect on like a breakfast show or a podcast
[08:56:15] <Aria> But they're not even doing that right!
[08:57:03] <Aria> This lady is all like "In the show, the faction with the bigger ship would always win the space battles. But for this movie, we wanted to show that the smaller ship can win if its more nimble and fights more smart"
[08:57:30] <Aria> And the insert for while she says that is a million small-ish ships attacking the enterprise
[08:57:42] <Aria> But the combined mass of all those ships is like 10 or more times the size of the enterprise
[08:57:58] <Aria> That's not the smaller more nimble ship winning, that's the bigger fleet winning!
[09:07:36] <Bronz|work> Oh, wait, you mean when that hive attacked the ship?
[09:07:42] <Bronz|work> With all the black ships?
[09:07:44] <Aria> Yes
[09:07:53] <Bronz|work> And then the enterprise won anyway?
[09:08:14] <Aria> No I think they lost?
[09:08:19] <Aria> But yes that scene
[09:08:34] <Bronz|work> They blasted rock through their space speakers, and then won, didn't they?
[09:08:53] <Aria> Oh yeah that happened. But that was the later fight
[09:08:57] <Aria> they lost the first time
[09:09:00] <Bronz|work> Ah, right.
[09:19:51] <Aria> You know the stupid upside down city they go to?
[09:20:13] <Aria> Apparently that's just Dubai
[09:26:03] <Bronz|work> Oh.
[09:26:21] <Aria> I mean, they added the upside down city
[09:26:32] <Aria> But that was just a different part of Dubai
[09:26:41] <Aria> They didn't like, design buildings
[09:27:10] <Aria> Quoteish "The only set dressing we had to do was add those two benches"

[09:27:38] <Aria> Hi again
[09:30:56] <Bronz|work> Hello, how goes?
[09:31:04] <Bronz|work> Me? I feel kind of disorganized?
[09:31:14] <Bronz|work> I dunno.
[09:31:18] <Aria> I feel asleep
[09:31:33] <Bronz|work> Ah, and you closed IRC?
[09:31:37] <Aria> This is a very good video https://youtu.be
[09:39:08] <Aria> Oh hey in the comments is that furry guy who kept spamming my twitter feed
[09:44:24] <Bronz|work> I didn't get the joke at first, so I had to watch it again.
[09:45:20] <Bronz|work> On spotify, I said "Music simular to eurobeat brony", and this is the 3rd (of 3) remix of Five nights at Freddy songs.
[09:46:58] <Bronz|work> I mean, I'm not sure what I should've expected...
[09:47:53] <Bronz|work> Ah yes, This playlist is called "Eurobeat (like Intitial D)".
[09:51:42] <Aria> I've only been awake for less than 10 hours, but I'm falling asleep
[09:53:18] <Bronz|work> That's just your body being "Eh, now's sleepy-times"
[09:53:26] <Bronz|work> Try making some hot-chocolate.
[09:53:36] <Bronz|work> (btw, we need to drink our milk soon-ish, before it expires)
[09:55:51] <Aria> I'll drink some now
[10:05:16] <Bronz|work> I forgot I had brought breakfast, so I bought breakfast.
[10:05:21] <Bronz|work> I guess I have lunch instead now.
[10:06:42] <Aria> I really want a version of Tatsunoko vs Capcom that has all the characters from the second release but not the garbage music
[10:13:47] <Bronz|work> Email capcom?
[10:13:53] <Aria> =P
[10:14:11] <Aria> Hey Caps can you make a custom version of this 10 year old game for me k thanks
[10:14:25] <Bronz|work> Gotta just be supes polite
[10:14:33] <Aria> "Sure what do you need?" "Like, if you could add like 6 more characters?"
[10:14:47] <Aria> "Seems like a lot of work dog..."
[10:15:19] <Aria> "Okay fine, don't add any characters. How about instead you take this other game and you change the sound code so that it has the behaviour of this other game?"
[10:15:31] <Aria> There are guides on how to replace the songs
[10:15:51] <Aria> It won't have custom behaviour, but at least it'll be better music. But it's a lot of steps
[10:15:57] <Aria> I was hoping to just download someones rom
[10:16:14] <Bronz|work> Or you could play without those characters?
[10:16:28] <Bronz|work> Which characters are they anyway?
[10:17:58] <Aria> They removed Hakushon Daimaou
[10:18:30] <Aria> Added Zero (Rockman), Frank West, Yatterman 2, Joe the Condor, Tekkaman Blade
[10:21:37] <Bronz|work> Oh well, in that case..
[10:36:42] <Aria> So there is a dead torrent
[10:36:48] <Aria> I was hoping maybe usenet had it but no
[10:40:30] <Bronz|work> =(
[11:14:49] <Aria> I think I somehow messed up my hot chocolate. Its very bitter
[11:18:04] <Bronz|work> ... did you use the little chocolate chunks?
[11:18:13] <Bronz|work> Or did you use cocao powder?
[11:18:25] <Aria> cocao powder?
[11:18:40] <Bronz|work> With the raw cacao, you need 2 to 4 teaspoons of cacao, and 2 to 4 teaspoons of sugar.
[11:18:50] <Bronz|work> (per cup)
[11:19:04] <Bronz|work> Maybe 1 to 2 teaspoons, actually?
[11:19:15] <Bronz|work> I think I do 4 when I make 2 or 3 cups, thinking about it.
[11:19:24] <Aria> Fifa 17 is native 4K on PS4P
[11:19:52] <Bronz|work> Fifa 17 is definetly a game that benefits from more pixels
[11:20:05] <Bronz|work> (sure, most of 'em are green, but the ones that are not are important)
[11:20:05] <Aria> But it doesn't look very sharp
[11:20:10] <Aria> Maybe thats the youtube compression
[11:20:31] <Aria> But I feel like 16 looks a million times better on my PC than this does on PS4P via youtube
[11:27:35] <Aria> PES17 looks very Metal Gear V
[11:27:59] <Aria> It's good. Better than Fifa maybe
[11:28:13] <Aria> Definitely better than the Fifa footage in this video
[11:37:22] <Aria> So out of the 17 games that Sony says are 4K/60 on PS4P, 5 games are actually 4K/60, says DigitalFoundry
[11:39:14] <Aria> Hustle Kings (billiard game), Neon Chrome (Like a low tech twin stick shootery type thing), Thumper, Viking Squad (beat em up) and Wheels of Aurelia (Presentation is good, but seems like a very minor part of the game, since you're mostly staring at dialog boxes. You're given very little time to read and need to make choices quickly based on them)
[11:47:34] <Aria> So in RE7.. why can't I just stick my head through a locked cabinet and grab the items inside without getting the key first?
[12:08:30] <Bronz|work> Because while your head is made of ghost, your hands are not.
[12:08:48] <Bronz|work> Also, I think if you stick your head through something, it doesn't clip, it darkens your vision.
[12:09:05] <Aria> But you don't have hands. You have commands that are tied to your face. When you look at jar, X is pick up jar
[12:09:29] <Aria> So if you look at jar behind locked door, wouldn't the x prompt show up just the same?
[12:10:49] <Bronz|work> *shrug*
[12:10:58] <Bronz|work> Speedrun strats?
[12:11:28] <Bronz|work> Hehe, I could see TAS runs be really broken in VR.
[12:13:28] <Aria> ...Shit I should start running some VR games
[12:13:45] <Aria> Oh wait no, I would be at an disadvantage because of my puking breaks.
[12:13:53] <Aria> I have to run like really short games. 3m
[12:14:19] <Bronz|work> Just close your eyes the entire time.
[12:14:30] <Aria> =P
[12:54:18] <Aria> Do you think Oz the Great and Powerful 2013 is good?
[13:00:46] <Aria> Are you sure I'm just tired because of my sleeping schedule? Because I'm still incredibly sleepy
[13:06:55] <Bronz|work> I don't know why you're tired, it's hard to tell if it's because you're off of your rythm, or actually tired.
[13:07:04] <Bronz|work> It depends on if you feel sleepy, or actually tired.
[13:07:24] <Bronz|work> Sleepy is when you want to fall asleep, whereas tired is when you're dull and slow in the head.
[13:07:58] <Aria> Both?
[13:08:59] <Bronz|work> Well, then both reasons?
[13:16:03] <Aria> I should play the Capcom Zelda's
[13:16:34] <Aria> I would if the camera was zoomed out
[13:23:01] <Aria> Is there a PS4 emulator?
[13:23:30] <Aria> Maybe I can get Bloodborne in HD that way
[13:28:11] <Bronz|work> Emulators add like, 800% overhead.
[13:28:25] <Aria> I can still afford anti aliasing.
[14:31:34] <Aria> Only one more hour to go, can't wait
[14:31:42] <Aria> Did you inquire about going to the post office?
[14:37:25] <Bronz|work> yes, of course
[14:37:28] <Bronz|work> ... just now.
[14:46:24] <Aria> Aha?
[14:46:32] <Aria> Well make sure to fill out the form
[14:46:33] <Bronz|work> No response so far.
[14:46:46] <Aria> It would be quite obvious if you forged my signature in front of the clerk
[14:47:16] <Bronz|work> I'm filling it out as soon as I know I have a ride.
[14:47:22] <Bronz|work> (just in case)
[14:47:32] <Aria> Okay
[15:18:37] <Aria> Have you seen dodge in Smite?
[15:19:23] <Bronz|work> I haven't. Why?
[15:19:49] <Aria> It's eh.. surprising
[15:21:43] <Aria> Apparently it wouldn't be if I had followed the game more
[15:21:51] <Aria> They've done similar things before
[15:42:49] <Bronz|work> I still don't get it.
[15:43:39] <Aria> Why are you still here?
[15:44:30] <Bronz|work> I got a call 10 minutes before time.
[15:44:38] <Bronz|work> And then she was all "So yeah, I have a few problems...."
[15:44:45] <Aria> =/
[15:45:11] <Bronz|work> And then 15 minutes later she was all "yeah... I need to go now?" and I was all "Fine", but the requests she made still require a lot of ticket-making on my end.
[15:45:32] <Aria> I see. Yeah that sucks
[15:45:40] <Bronz|work> But now I'm done.
[15:46:14] <Aria> Alright, see you soon
[15:46:20] <Bronz|work> 'k cya.
