[10:27:41] <Aria> Morning
[10:27:49] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria!
[10:28:09] <Aria> Fucking wind-monster sounds like its typing on a keyboard
[10:28:22] <Bronz|work> Hmm...
[10:28:28] <Bronz|work> It's been quite windy.
[10:30:46] <Aria> They added audio mirroring to Oculus today
[10:41:14] <Aria> (So Thumper will be more fun to watch)
[10:41:32] <Aria> Also I'm real bad at waking up, turns out.
[10:45:02] <Aria> https://twitter.com
[10:48:14] <Bronz|work> ha!
[10:53:10] <Aria> So apparently Twitch refuses to sell a game if there isn't an exclusive something for Twitch users
[10:53:34] <Aria> The example is a hat with a skull on it for um.. some game

[11:00:58] <Aria> My computer crashed
[11:04:36] <Bronz|work> Oh really?
[11:04:51] <Bronz|work> What kind of crash?
[11:05:50] <Aria> Um.
[11:05:57] <Aria> It stopped refreshing
[11:06:11] <Aria> Then went black after like a full 30 seconds, maybe longer
[11:06:22] <Aria> Then I had to hold down the button for it to turn off
[11:06:54] <Bronz|work> That's pretty serious.
[11:07:57] <Aria> Yeah I don't know
[11:08:05] <Aria> Hope it doesn't happen again
[11:49:02] <Bronz|work> It's pizza day today.
[11:49:51] <Aria> Enjoy!

[12:59:20] <Bronz|work> Hurray they're back.
[13:34:44] <Aria> We had breakfast stuff
[13:34:54] <Aria> That was nice
[13:35:02] <Aria> I had a sandwich
[13:36:44] <Bronz|work> That does sound nice.
[13:49:40] <Aria> ..
[13:49:45] <Aria> >.> God damnit Dark Byte
[13:50:02] <Aria> He removed all cheats from the cheat engine forums
[13:50:06] <Apsup> I'm eating sandwich right now. ^^
[13:50:23] <Aria> Without providing backups
[13:50:26] <Aria> Or a new place
[13:50:43] <Aria> The post is like "So lets figure out together where to start posting from now on!"
[13:50:55] <Aria> That's cool. Maybe wait until it's decided before removing everything
[13:51:30] <Aria> Also provide a backup of everything you deleted
[13:57:12] <Aria> >.> Sniper Elite 4 has a check for Cheat Engine
[13:57:43] <Aria> It's not a online game, why would they do that?
[13:58:28] <Aria> And why would they not include 100% in the slow mo chance slider! >=(
[14:03:50] <Bronz|work> Congratulations on the sandwich, Apsup.
[14:03:59] <Bronz|work> Also, that's some BS about the CE thing.
[14:04:14] <Bronz|work> DarkByte... more like DarkBiteMyButt!
[14:05:30] <Apsup> It was good. Though I ran out of margarine to spread on them, but was still fine.
[14:06:02] <Bronz|work> Apperantly, in America, they don't use butter?
[14:06:11] <Bronz|work> (Or margerine)
[14:06:38] <Apsup> Names are hard. I just want to get one universal list of names, but no. I have to consider different cultural backgrounds and list suitable names for all.
[14:07:21] <Bronz|work> ?
[14:08:07] <Apsup> Running a rpg campaign again. Set in Johannesburg, and I like to have list of names ready for random NPCs. But the area is quite multicultural, in reality and even more in the cyberpunk future.
[14:08:24] <Bronz|work> Oh I get it.
[14:08:42] <Bronz|work> It's the Cyberpunk future, just make everyone have a serial code
[14:08:49] <Bronz|work> And then they all can have nicknames
[14:08:59] <Bronz|work> like "Byter" and "scritch"
[14:09:15] <Apsup> Nah, I like names, it's just that the coming up with them part sucks.
[14:09:29] <Aria> It's the Cyberpunk future, just make everyone have names like "Byter" and "scritch"
[14:10:08] <Bronz|work> I like that you kept my lowercase Scritch.
[14:10:08] <Apsup> I don't think that works with the rich corporate folk. I like them to be more "professional".
[14:10:26] <Apsup> Player characters are street scum with funny nick names already.
[14:12:03] <Aria> Fine, rich corporate cyberpunk names like "Whiskey" and "Denuvo"
[14:12:24] <Bronz|work> ...
[14:12:24] <Aria> "Geoloc Checker"
[14:12:36] <Bronz|work> Just name them all after DRMs?
[14:12:37] <Aria> "This is Frank XIFF"
[14:12:45] <Apsup> "Call me Mr.Whiskey"
[14:12:49] <Apsup> Actually that's pretty good.
[14:13:19] <Bronz|work> Trying to make fun of Aria's idea just shows how good it is.
[14:13:38] <Bronz|work> So the secret ring of corporate overlords all have liqour names
[14:14:15] <Apsup> Few rolls of random name generator and I'm already hating African names (also african names as category is quite weird as there are multiple culture groups with different naming conventions, I think).
[14:14:22] <Bronz|work> Mr. Rum, Mr. Zambooka, Mr. Baijiu.
[14:14:55] <Bronz|work> Yeah, there's quite a lot of sub-groups when it comes to names
[14:15:10] <Bronz|work> What makes it more difficult is that different countries there imported names form different European countries
[14:15:19] <Bronz|work> Depending on who colonized/controlled what parts of Africa.
[14:16:21] <Apsup> This generator seems to also have limited number of family names for african's, as it's already repeating them.
[14:16:46] <Bronz|work> *Africans
[14:20:08] <Aria> Why not use real data instead of a name generator? Just find a list of most common names
[14:20:18] <Aria> Probably in South Africa if Cyberpunk
[14:20:39] <Aria> Other names for boys that made the top ten for male babies that were born in 2014 – in their order of popularity, included Bandile, Kungawo, Siyabonga, Lethabo, Khayone, Mpho, Bokamoso, Kamogelo and Thato.
[14:20:39] <Aria> For girls, Minenhle was the second most popular name, followed by Rethabile, Bokamoso, Karabo, Amogelang, Tshegofatso, Lesedi, Amahle and Thandolwethu.
[14:20:40] <Aria> The most popular surname for both sexes went to the Dlaminis, followed by Ntulis, Ngubanes, Ndlovus, Nkosis, Khumalos, Ngobenis, Mthethwas, Zwanes and Malulekes.
[14:22:40] <Apsup> Where did you find those lists?
[14:23:17] <Apsup> I found lists of first names, though they had slightly different data.
[14:25:38] <Aria> http://www.sanews.gov.za
[14:26:27] <Apsup> Oh, right that's why your lists didn't have the number 1 of the list I found. They were mentioned separately.
[14:26:35] <Apsup> Not that it matters.
[14:26:46] <Aria> Yeah it wasn't a very good article
[14:26:50] <Aria> But its the one I found
[14:27:39] <Apsup> Well, I found lists, and from those I would have had to copy paste the names one at a time. With that I was able to take the whole listing of names.
[14:31:16] <Apsup> I guess I have names for a while now. Also the most important names I can create during prep when I have time to consider who and from where the person is.
[14:33:36] <Bronz|work> Will your players notice if the names are wrong though?
[14:33:50] <Apsup> No.
[14:33:53] <Aria> GM's pride.
[14:34:00] <Apsup> Also I will definitely misprnounce everything.
[14:34:27] <Bronz|work> Ah well, fair enough
[14:35:17] <Apsup> I already misheard things during character creation session, where players named and made megacorporations. One person mentioned Tiangdong Heavy Industries, I heard it as Dingdong.
[14:35:49] <Bronz|work> eh, close enough
[14:35:49] <Aria> Dingdong not bad.
[14:41:27] <Bronz|work> I wanna run a tabletop RPG.
[14:41:34] <Bronz|work> But... we don't have a table.
[14:41:56] <Apsup> Rough.
[14:43:02] <Apsup> I have heard that you are allowed to play on floor, or at couch.
[14:43:42] <Bronz|work> Yeah I suppose that's possible

[15:09:41] <Aria> Welcome back
[15:10:05] <Apsup> PC froze while I was away for while.
[15:10:11] <Aria> Huh.
[15:10:15] <Aria> Maybe it's Windows?
[15:10:19] <Apsup> It used to do this often, then it stopped doing this, and no it does it again.
[15:10:23] <Aria> Are you on up to date Windows 10?
[15:10:35] <Aria> Oh okay never mind
[15:10:39] <Aria> I also had a freeze today
[15:10:43] <Aria> But I haven't had it before
[15:11:18] <Aria> I guess it's pretty unlikely that were would be a big bug like this in a Windows update. Those things are probably pretty thoroughly tested
[15:11:50] <Apsup> Fast googling shows that there seems to be plenty of people with similar issues, but multiple different solutions.
[15:13:23] <Aria> Right, I'ma see about having a shower. See you later
[15:13:24] <Aria> Oh!
[15:13:28] <Aria> Inflatable tunnels!
[15:13:43] <Aria> @Bronz|work, You shoot a inflatable tunnel with a bend
[15:13:51] <Aria> Like, you can shape the tunnel however you want
[15:13:58] <Aria> Into an AI's walk path
[15:14:02] <Aria> And now they have a new route
[15:14:44] <Bronz|work> ...
[15:14:46] <Bronz|work> ...
[15:14:50] <Bronz|work> ...
[15:19:46] <Aria> Yes?
[15:24:43] <Apsup> Huh, and now on the restart Windows was like "your default audio output is your monitor"
[15:24:53] <Apsup> Which I have never used for audio output.
[15:25:33] <Apsup> Took me a second to figure out why sound wasn't working.
[15:28:07] <Bronz|work> Looks like I'll be missing the bus =(
[15:28:13] <Apsup> :[
[16:03:37] <Aria> Did you miss the bus?
[16:03:46] <Aria> My audio doesn't work from my motherboard
[16:04:04] <Aria> So I use it through my monitor, it has audio out
[16:04:07] <Aria> But that also is not great
[16:47:05] <Apsup> For fucks sake. Phone has started to cry about "can't update apps, not enough space".
[16:47:21] <Apsup> Pretty sure I've shoved everything I can on SD card already.
[16:48:27] <Aria> Maybe you have a big cache somewhere
