[05:48:16] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[05:48:23] <Aria> Hi
[05:49:59] <Apsupp> Morning.
[05:50:12] <Aria> Have you used libgen?
[05:50:14] Apsupp is now known as Apsup
[05:50:22] <Aria> I'm trying to pirate this book, but I get a timeout
[05:50:29] <Apsup> I don't think so.
[05:50:55] <Apsup> No I haven't. After checking what it is.
[05:53:02] <Bronz|work> You can get .mobi files here, it says: http://ikindlebooks.com
[05:53:03] <Aria> Okay found it on bookfi
[05:53:15] <Bronz|work> I tried to download it but it didn't quite let me because of corporate internet.
[05:53:25] <Aria> ?
[05:53:41] <Aria> Why did you link a different website than the one I mentioned?
[05:53:48] <Bronz|work> Because google
[05:54:33] <Aria> Also c'mon, you searched for the most pirated books, of course that isn't a good test of a piracy service
[06:00:34] <Bronz|work> That's fair.
[06:11:01] <Aria> I don't know, I feel like if I was publishing a book
[06:11:08] <Aria> I would proof read the "look inside" part
[06:11:21] <Aria> "THough men had had nuclear rockets since the beginning"
[06:11:42] <Bronz|work> Yeah, definetly.
[06:13:06] <Aria> Also this book literally starts with sci fi world building composed entirely of proper nouns
[06:13:14] <Aria> Can't that stuff wait?
[06:21:12] <Bronz|work> How to introduce a proper noun: Give a full description first. Only when your reader fully understands, do you name it.
[06:21:23] <Bronz|work> Or in other words, if you take the proper nouns out, your story still needs to make sense.
[07:04:38] <Aria> Do you remember where quiz game is saved on my computer?
[07:04:49] <Aria> Found it
[07:12:11] <Bronz|work> I do remember
[07:12:15] <Bronz|work> I got a new work PC.
[07:12:43] <Bronz|work> New work PC means re-install of OS, meaning I can actually get Gnome 3, offically
[07:17:38] <Aria> Nice, nice
[07:47:04] <Bronz|work> I like this progress bar.
[07:48:12] <Bronz|work> It filled up to 70% in a minute, and now it's been there for like, 20 minutes
[07:48:45] <Aria> That happens
[07:49:22] <Bronz|work> Yeah.
[11:07:33] <Aria> Man why am I so sleepy?
[11:07:41] <Aria> I woke up at a reasonable hour
[11:32:21] <Bronz|work> Oh no, you're sleepy?
[11:32:32] <Aria> Very
[11:46:51] <Bronz|work> Well, maybe ordering food will make you less sleepy? Or doing laundry?
[11:47:01] <Bronz|work> Or the opposite of those, going out for a walk/having a cup of tea?
[13:28:30] <Aria> Okay I lied down a bit and feel better now
[13:29:45] <Bronz|work> Meanwhile I'm hungry.
[13:30:15] <Bronz|work> (Also, a tiny bit nausiated? I think that's mostly my hunger being confused)
[13:30:44] <Bronz|work> I don't think we have food in the house.
[13:32:39] <Aria> But you have food where you are
[13:32:45] <Aria> I'm the one who doesn't have food
[13:35:06] <Bronz|work> Oh well, yeah, but the cafeteria is closed
[13:35:10] <Bronz|work> And I don't have change.
[13:35:23] <Bronz|work> So I also don't have food, practially, when you think about it, y'know?
[13:35:36] <Aria> Alright
[13:35:39] <Aria> I'm sorry
[13:36:01] <Bronz|work> 's ok, also, you can't make sammiches/cereal/porridge?
[13:36:08] <Aria> I can
[13:36:16] <Bronz|work> Do I need to go buy food when I get home, or are we ordering something in, or third option?
[13:36:33] <Aria> I'll check if we have anything in the freezer
[13:37:28] <Aria> Couldn't find anything
[13:38:37] <Aria> We have fries, peas, mais, but can't find any meat
[13:39:38] <Bronz|work> Should I get some, or should I make my world famous omelet again
[13:39:53] <Bronz|work> *omelette
[13:39:58] <Bronz|work> Man, I had some issues spelling that.
[13:42:38] <Aria> Let's have pizza
[13:45:16] <Aria> Good post https://www.reddit.com
[13:48:25] <Bronz|work> It is.
[14:06:54] <Aria> I'm watching this youtube video. The Fantastic Masculinity of Newt Scamander
[14:07:11] <Bronz|work> That name sounds familliar...
[14:07:26] <Aria> Where he talks about how great and masculine Newt from Fantastical Creatures is.
[14:08:38] <Aria> But it's not a good video. He's applauding Newt for being written with masculine traits that are often not explored in Hollywood movies. But those are not masculine traits, they are his character traits, and he happens to be a man
[14:09:07] <Aria> If a woman played the role, you wouldn't consider her to be doing masculine things
[14:09:26] <Aria> And then the second half of the video is him praising how subtle the movie was, and pointing out all the subtle things
[14:09:42] <Aria> Except none of it is subtle. Everything he is referencing is incredible overt
[14:10:12] <Bronz|work> What's that text sharing website?
[14:10:31] <Aria> sprung.us?
[14:10:37] <Bronz|work> That one, yes.
[14:10:51] <Bronz|work> =O
[14:10:54] <Bronz|work> It's for sale!
[14:10:55] <Aria> http://sprunge.us
[14:11:09] <Bronz|work> Oh.
[14:11:11] <Aria> I forgot the e
[14:29:14] <Bronz|work> Ok, going home soon. If you order pizza now, even from a far off place, it'll be there when I arrive right?
[14:29:26] <Aria> Oh yeah
[14:30:25] <Bronz|work> ok, bye
[14:30:29] <Aria> Bye
