[04:23:13] -!- Aria [Aria!Aria@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[05:56:00] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria
[05:56:07] <Aria> Hi
[06:23:10] <Aria> You know that guy I was complaining about yesterday? I said he made the wrong remarks about tha Harry potter movie?
[06:23:35] <Aria> Well I'm watching him do one now about Star Wars and-- his videos are well presented. Editing is good, he has a good mic and a good voice
[06:23:56] <Aria> But everybody else who does this format video, I feel have good insight and have thought long about the topic their talking about
[06:24:13] <Aria> This guy, I swear, he has to be only half paying attention to the movies
[06:24:22] <Bronz|work> He gets facts wrong and such?
[06:24:26] <Aria> No no
[06:24:36] <Bronz|work> Does he say obvious things, or wrong things?
[06:24:52] <Aria> He points out parts of the narrative that take centre focus and talks about them as if no one noticed
[06:25:00] <Aria> Like its a subtle second layer to the movie
[06:25:07] <Aria> And yes, he does get a bit wrong
[06:25:39] <Aria> He's now talking about how the Stormtroopers are humans in Force Awaken, which retroactively means they've always been human and that changes the context of those other movies. But I mean, that's not news
[06:25:50] <Aria> Everybody can tell you that stormtroopers are humans. They talk
[06:26:22] <Aria> They have fabric joints. The movie shows humanoid robots, and they are clearly portrait differently than the stormtroopers
[06:26:35] <Bronz|work> Also, Luke dresses up as one?
[06:26:39] <Aria> Yes!
[06:26:55] <Bronz|work> That's one of the first things that happens?
[06:27:10] <Bronz|work> I mean, the first storm trooper you see is being hypnotised, but y'know
[06:27:16] <Bronz|work> Maybe robots can be mind-tricked too?
[06:35:07] <Aria> He makes valid (But again, very obvious) criticism of Force Awakens, but he contextualizes it in a way as to say 'while I'm not explicitly talking about any of the other Star Wars movies, it's always been there'. Which simply isn't true
[06:35:33] <Aria> This is just the first time you watched a Star Wars movie while paying attention
[06:41:26] <Aria> This Ask Historians page is full of misinformation?
[06:41:34] <Aria> I thought askhistorians was supposed to be super accurate
[06:41:42] <Aria> Because you have to be a fucking scholar to reply
[06:43:44] <Bronz|work> Well, anybody can reply, but if the mods see you spread falsehoods, your comment gets removed, I think
[06:52:36] <Aria> I can't find any info about working out during medieval times
[06:52:44] <Aria> All the info I find is about professional knights
[06:52:54] <Bronz|work> People didn't get fat, because usually there wasn't enough food
[06:53:04] <Bronz|work> And people who were fat were seen as rich and desirable.
[06:53:10] <Aria> Surely people aspired to be strong?
[06:53:28] <Bronz|work> Sure, but if you're a farmer, farming will make you strong.
[06:53:37] <Bronz|work> And if you're a soldier, training will make you strong.
[06:53:40] <Aria> Not to get rid of fat, but to add muscle for the sake of being the strongest man around
[06:54:05] <Bronz|work> Fair enough, so training muscle?
[06:54:12] <Aria> Yes
[06:54:21] <Aria> Billy is also a farmer. I can't be stronger than Billy by farming
[06:55:25] <Aria> I'm finding exercise that makes you good at stabbing people, not exercise that makes you look good
[06:56:55] <Aria> For example running, stretching and handstands. Those are things that I'm sure help you when you go to war, but they don't help you scare people off from harassing you at the pub. Right?
[06:59:18] <Bronz|work> Well, this guy on reddit says moving and throwing stones was a regular exercises.
[06:59:27] <Aria> The Steam updater, the text says "Restart Steam", even when the user doesn't realize Steam is even running
[06:59:38] <Bronz|work> 'course.
[07:31:46] <Aria> ...
[07:31:51] <Aria> This fucking guy
[07:31:53] <Aria> I swear
[07:32:15] <Aria> He has to have the attention span of-- well, someone who wouldn't have the attention span required the write and record this video
[07:32:30] <Bronz|work> Why are you still watching his videos then?
[07:33:40] <Aria> "If you look close, you'll notice a small and unassuming US Army logo in the corner" *zoom in on half the screen*. "And if you look even more closely" (Put on your fucking scientist glasses!)", you'll notice that the website you have been redirected to goarmy.com"
[07:33:46] <Aria> People know what fucking website they are on!
[07:34:44] <Aria> I haven't been. I finished what I was doing (exercise research) and started closing tabs. His video was one of the open tabs
[07:34:56] <Aria> I guess yes, but I took a break
[07:48:26] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[07:48:44] <Aria> Hey Apsup, I want some low key writing music
[07:49:47] <Apsup> https://youtu.be
[07:49:50] <Aria> Thanks
[07:50:05] <Aria> Oh its that thing
[07:50:10] <Aria> YouTube keeps recommending me that
[07:50:14] <Aria> I don't like it...
[07:50:16] <Apsup> same
[07:50:21] <Apsup> that's why I recommended it.
[07:51:56] <Aria> Clarinets don't sound good...
[07:52:05] <Aria> Solo I mean
[07:52:15] <Aria> They're too high pitched
[07:53:02] <Bronz|work> clarinet bad cover
[07:55:09] <Aria> Do people do commercials for books?
[07:55:52] <Apsup> Yes?
[07:56:09] <Apsup> Probably
[07:56:16] <Apsup> Maybe.
[07:56:39] <Aria> What's in the commercial? Do they make versions of the exciting scenes and edit it into a trailer?
[07:56:50] <Aria> Like with sets, actors and CG and stuff. Seems very pricey
[08:07:37] <Bronz|work> Nah, just actors looking at the book going "Wooooow!"
[08:07:51] <Bronz|work> Imagine the switch trailer, but with less videgames.
[08:08:41] <Aria> So I'm watching this youtube video
[08:08:52] <Aria> "False facts about Star Wars You Always Thought Were True"
[08:08:56] <Aria> I should'be known better
[08:09:37] <Aria> But anyway, it's not a good video, because 1) the guy is super grasping at straws, even going as far as to using secondary sources (not the movies) and misrepresenting dialog
[08:09:44] <Aria> But also 2) I knew all of this
[08:21:41] <Aria> England hasn't had a lot of Queens
[08:22:02] <Aria> I thought it was 50/50 kings and queens
[08:22:38] <Aria> I am noticing these kings only rule for like 5-10 years of average and the queens are all like 50 years though
[08:23:17] <Bronz|work> If there's sons, they get first dibs.
[08:23:22] <Bronz|work> so there end up being a lot more kings.
[08:23:29] <Aria> Eh actually, some of these men did rule for very long
[08:23:48] <Aria> John, Henry V, Philip
[08:23:49] <Bronz|work> It's just coincidental that the ladies rule particularly long.
[08:25:08] <Aria> Anyway, I'll set my story in (unspecified) 1533+a few years, because then the ruler is Elizabeth I, who is a hype ass lady
[08:25:30] <Bronz|work> Ok, sounds good.
[08:25:33] <Aria> This painting is great, she looks like fucking Voldemort https://en.wikipedia.org
[08:25:51] <Bronz|work> Oh that's not bad.
[08:27:33] <Aria> (Also 1558, not 1533, that's date of birth, my bad)
[08:35:55] <Aria> Remember how I said she looked like Voldemort in that previous picture
[08:36:07] <Aria> Well never mind Voldemort, who does she look like in this?
[08:36:08] <Aria> https://upload.wikimedia.org
[08:36:38] <Bronz|work> Grim reaper?
[08:36:42] <Bronz|work> Skeletor?
[08:37:04] <Bronz|work> Maybe I'm just thinking of the guy on the right though.
[08:37:13] <Aria> Oh that isn't her?
[08:37:26] <Bronz|work> =P
[08:38:33] <Aria> She looks like fucking Dracula, that's is who. Not Bela Lugosi, not Vlad the Impaler, but Evil Wizard Dracula
[08:39:26] <Bronz|work> Ah, fair enough.
[08:39:42] <Bronz|work> She does look a bit like that guy fromt he Keanu Reaves movie
[08:39:46] <Aria> Death is like "Hey do you need me to steal Spain's whip?"
[08:40:21] <Aria> Which one?
[08:40:31] <Aria> Oh you mean Keanu Reaves Dracula?
[08:41:09] <Bronz|work> Yeah, what else.
[10:30:59] <Bronz|work> So, wutcha upto?
[10:31:31] <Aria> Inserting a tail into every description of this character
[10:31:38] <Aria> Also thinking I should nap
[10:31:58] <Bronz|work> Napping is usually nice.
[10:32:18] <Bronz|work> https://support.mozilla.org
[10:32:24] <Bronz|work> Nobody answered me =(
[10:32:44] <Aria> Better reinstall Windows, am I right?
[10:34:54] <Aria> ...Reinstall ibmsam you idiot.
[10:35:57] <Aria> (The method you used shouldn't be too problematic)
[10:40:16] <Bronz|work> I'm not allowed, IBMSAM is protected.
[10:40:28] <Bronz|work> I googled how to re-install protected files, but apperantly, there's very few protected files
[10:40:36] <Bronz|work> (Like, yum is about the only one)
[11:43:24] <Bronz|work> I had a burger
[11:43:27] <Bronz|work> It was really good.
[11:43:37] <Aria> I'll believe that
[12:22:31] <Apsup> Played through Tekken 7 story. It was over the top, just the way I like them.
[12:22:42] <Aria> Can't wait
[12:22:45] <Aria> Mine hasn't arrived yet
[12:23:16] <Aria> Have you seen Blood Vengeance, the Tekken movie?
[12:23:45] <Apsup> No.
[12:23:53] <Aria> Then I highly, highly recommend you do
[12:24:08] <Aria> Most of it is completely forgettable, and it's okay if you want to skip it
[12:24:28] <Aria> But near the end, there is a fight between Jin, Kazuya and Heihachi, and it's beautifully done
[12:24:54] <Aria> It's about 5 minutes, I'm sure it's on YouTube
[12:27:00] <Bronz|work> I can second that Blood Vengeance reccomendation.
[12:27:10] <Bronz|work> Those fights are cool.
[12:27:19] <Aria> That one fight
[12:27:22] <Aria> There is one good fight
[12:27:27] <Aria> But it's worth the price of admission
[12:27:34] <Bronz|work> Also, I made a KVM with all the reccomendations. I haven't installed anything on it except updates, and it ran out of harddrive space
[12:27:50] <Aria> That's Windows 7.
[12:27:54] <Bronz|work> If your VM comes default with not enough space, you didn't set your defaults correctly.
[12:27:56] <Aria> Get Win 10
[12:28:01] <Bronz|work> 30GB is the default
[12:28:11] <Aria> Windows 7 is like 80
[12:28:12] <Bronz|work> Oh, it's a work KVM, so I can't just install the best windows on it?
[12:39:42] <Bronz|work> Ok, I'm resizing it now.
[12:44:54] <Aria> How rude is it to insult someone's makeup?
[12:45:32] <Aria> Like, if I say someone is ugly because of their bones and face muscles and what not, then that's mean
[12:45:51] <Bronz|work> Well, it's as rude as saying "You have bad taste"
[12:45:57] <Aria> But this person is ugly only because of artificial changes
[12:46:02] <Bronz|work> That said, it is something you could bring up politely
[12:46:14] <Bronz|work> Such as "I don't think these choices compliment you very well"
[12:46:19] <Bronz|work> That shouldn't be too rude?
[12:46:25] <Aria> I'm not good at being polite. Instead I try to just not say anything
[12:46:30] <Bronz|work> Though if you go "Dang girl, dat shirt is ugly!"
[12:46:41] <Bronz|work> that's rude
[12:46:47] <Aria> "Why do you look like you're made out of plastic? "
[13:04:36] <Aria> Yo Kitaro is fluent in English
[13:13:26] <Bronz|work> Kitaro?
[13:13:44] <Aria> Japanese musician. He's like 90
[13:14:27] <Aria> Apparently he's actually 64
[13:14:31] <Aria> That's older than expected
[13:33:52] <Bronz|work> Man, setting up that PC took longer than I thought it would
[13:33:56] <Bronz|work> 2 days, apperantly.
[13:34:00] <Aria> Yup.
[13:34:10] <Aria> Should image it
[13:34:23] <Aria> So next time you can start from here
[13:34:34] <Bronz|work> I don't have any storage media
[13:34:45] <Aria> Make a partition on the same drive?
[13:34:53] <Aria> Or just a image file
[13:49:00] <Bronz|work> Ok, I'm with a customer on the phone.
[13:49:10] <Bronz|work> As soon as I'm done, I'm swapping my PC.
[13:50:07] <Aria> But you just set this one up
[13:50:28] <Aria> Oh you mean from your working computer to the new computer
[13:50:36] <Aria> Because you've been setting up next to your working one
[13:50:37] <Aria> Right
[13:51:54] <Bronz|work> Exactly.
[14:05:53] <Bronz|work> Did you know these computers have display board connectors directly on the motherboard?
[14:06:07] <Aria> Did not
[14:06:17] <Bronz|work> Yup.
[14:06:24] <Aria> Ok
[14:08:34] <Aria> You know how to words and writing
[14:08:50] <Aria> How do I describe sniffing without implying or drawing attention to smell?
[14:09:01] <Aria> Like when your nose is running and you sniff it up
[14:09:17] <Aria> Sniffle can't be used because that is not only once
[14:09:45] <Bronz|work> You can say something like "He snottered a bit", maybe?
[14:10:42] <Aria> Snort requires a longer sound
[14:10:57] <Bronz|work> Or rather than describe the specific action, describe the reason behind it?
[14:11:04] <Bronz|work> "He had a runny nose"?
[14:11:07] <Aria> Like it requires that snoring kinda sound
[14:11:19] <Aria> Right
[14:20:34] <Aria> Each step, but for running?
[14:31:45] <Bronz|work> Hmm?
[14:31:52] <Bronz|work> Also, gonna have to stay a little late
[14:32:00] <Aria> What no
[14:32:04] <Aria> Okay I guess
[14:35:14] <Bronz|work> Ok, cya
[14:35:16] -!- Bronz|work has quit [Quit: leaving]
[14:54:47] -!- walter [walter!walter@hide-20F247AA.emea.ibm.com] has joined #geeknights
[14:54:53] <walter> Hello
[14:54:53] <Aria> Oh hello again
[14:54:58] <Aria> Not coming home after all?
[14:55:11] <Aria> Dude its 15:55 go take the bus
[14:55:14] <walter> Well, now I am, coz I missed the bus anyway
[14:55:21] <walter> But now my PC is set up.
[14:55:36] <walter> 'cept one of my screens is the wrong resolution, but we'll fix that on Monday
[14:55:42] <walter> Bye
[14:55:42] <Aria> Sure.
[14:55:44] <Aria> Bye
[14:55:48] walter is now known as Bronz|work
[15:42:59] <Aria> My Tekken isn't arriving until Monday 12
[15:43:23] <Aria> Even though it dispatched yesterday.
[15:43:52] <Aria> That's a very long time to be in transit. You would think it would be cheaper to get it to me quicker and save storage space
[18:51:47] <Apsup> Are you sure the tracking system isn't just busted?
[18:52:03] <Aria> It's amazon
[18:52:51] <Apsup> Huh. I'd also ask why no Digital, but I assume the answer lies in DRM or something? Which is still technically an issue even with physical copy.
[18:53:08] <Apsup> Or price.
[18:53:12] <Aria> I'm probably going to pirate the version I actually play.
[18:53:30] <Aria> No it's because I bought the deluxe edition or whatever and it comes with a cool toy
[18:53:39] <Apsup> oh right
[18:54:25] <Apsup> I didn't even get the digital season pass + stuff version. I was considering it, but what it currently has is nothing.
[18:54:36] <Apsup> If they release any cool DLC I get that separately then.
[18:54:43] <Aria> Oh. DLC
[18:54:51] <Aria> That's a thing now
[18:55:01] <Aria> I somehow thought there wasn't gonna be any. You know, the game is out
[18:55:08] <Aria> After years of being arcade out
[18:55:24] <Aria> So it would have everything by now. But of course not. That sucks. I doubt I'll buy any DLC
[18:55:35] <Aria> I'll get rev 2 that comes with DLC
[18:55:46] <Apsup> I think they have promiced a game mode (apparently it will be Tekken blowling, based on data found on PC version) and few (guest) characters.
[18:56:05] <Apsup> Also the vampire girl is DLC.
[18:56:07] <Aria> Alright
[18:56:12] <Aria> Who?
[18:56:25] <Aria> From Dead or Alive =P?
[18:56:47] <Aria> I can't remember any vampires in Tekken. Unless Jin
[18:56:55] <Apsup> pre-order bonus Eliza. No from the free to play Tekken.
[18:57:05] <Apsup> https://youtu.be
[18:57:08] <Aria> I see. That's fine, don't care for her
[18:57:32] <Apsup> Nether do I, but I still like to have full roster available.
[18:58:04] <Aria> I really hope it has multiplayer on PC
[18:58:59] <Aria> But I wouldn't be surprised if that's a console exclusive feature. I tweeted at Namco Bandai like a year ago and they said 'The game has single player!'
[18:59:33] <Apsup> From what I've heard Steam numbers are pretty good.
[18:59:37] <Aria> Local multiplayer I mean. I assume it has online
[18:59:52] <Aria> Yes, but Steam user reviews are left by people who don't have friends.
[18:59:55] <Apsup> Of course it will have local.
[19:01:15] <Aria> Also this game looks different than what I imagined
[19:01:23] <Aria> (I saw the trailer you sent)
[19:02:10] <Aria> Oh right, watch that fight in Blood Vengeance
[19:03:01] <Apsup> "That fight"
[19:03:05] <Apsup> Questionmark
[19:05:00] <Aria> The version on YouTube is low quality or I would just link it. It's the fight I talked about earlier. Kazuya jin and Heihachi threeway and it's really good. I'm not even afraid of over hyping it
[19:05:26] <Apsup> Oh, right, I missed you talking 'bout it.
