[00:01:59] <Aria> Still awake?
[00:02:02] <Aria> I have a question
[00:02:08] <Aria> If I'm writing a scene in first person
[00:02:20] <Aria> And then within that scene, one character is like "Let me tell you my backstory"
[00:02:33] <Aria> And now I want to tell a scene in first person from that other person's PoV
[00:02:54] <Aria> But I want to ground it in the first PoV, how would I do that?
[00:03:15] <Aria> Would I do quotes around the entire thing, and all dialog in it in single quotes?

[06:51:08] <Bronz|work> oh hi Apsup!
[07:05:17] <Apsup> Morning
[07:11:55] <Bronz|work> I'm quite hungry.
[07:14:02] <Apsup> I'm little bit hungry and I have no food here. Should have went to store yesterday, but I just ate what I had and pushed the problem for today.
[07:19:46] <Bronz|work> Yeah, I know that dance.
[07:19:56] <Bronz|work> You probably have some stale crackers somewhere or something, right?
[07:22:06] <Apsup> Nope. I'm not one for crackers and not one for saving them up. I have bunch of muesil, but no milk and eating that stuff dry is a thing I'd like to avoid.
[07:24:49] <Bronz|work> That's fair.
[07:24:58] <Bronz|work> In a pinch, you can use water, I guess.
[07:25:07] <Bronz|work> (Not as bad as it sounds)
[07:53:53] <Bronz|work> I have food now, so that's good.
[07:57:13] <Apsup> Good for you then. I guess I go make me some coffee. That doesn't help for the food, but states another craving.
[07:58:46] <Bronz|work> Hmm, that's fair
[07:58:54] <Bronz|work> Also, coffee surpresses appitite, right?
[12:14:56] -!- Aria [Aria!~Aria@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has joined #geeknights
[12:15:17] <Bronz|work> Hi Aria!
[12:15:53] <Aria> Hello
[12:15:59] <Aria> I slept pretty long today!
[12:16:02] <Aria> I did not expect this
[12:24:19] <Bronz|work> Oh noooo
[12:24:27] <Bronz|work> Did it at least feel good?
[12:25:03] <Aria> Sure
[12:25:06] <Aria> I enjoy sleep
[12:32:24] <Bronz|work> Did you know that Ctrl+R does a reverse search in your bash history?
[12:32:56] <Bronz|work> (in bash)
[12:32:59] <Aria> Um...
[12:33:09] <Aria> Bash doesn't accept keyboard input?
[12:33:15] <Aria> You mean in Microsoft Bash?
[12:33:16] <Bronz|work> Sorry, your bash ternimal.
[12:33:21] <Bronz|work> in linux
[12:33:35] <Aria> Like the ttys?
[12:33:51] <Bronz|work> for example, but gnome-terminal too.
[12:34:08] <Aria> Alright, no I didn't know that
[12:35:01] <Bronz|work> It's good, coz you can start typing a previous command, and it'll basically auto-complete.
[12:35:20] <Bronz|work> Much better than pressing up arrow 73 times.
[12:35:36] <Bronz|work> (cept for when you don't know how a command begins exactly).
[12:35:49] <Aria> mhm
[12:36:14] <Bronz|work> If you hit Ctrl+R again, it goes to the match before that.
[12:42:21] <Bronz|work> Related, do you remember how to your password when it's half-typed in the terminal?
[12:43:06] <Aria> ?
[12:43:26] <Bronz|work> Ctrl+U
[12:43:32] <Bronz|work> You said you'd never forget it.
[13:06:46] <Aria> You didn't ask the question right
[13:06:48] <Aria> I was confused
[13:06:55] <Bronz|work> That's fair.
[13:54:37] <Aria> So to get symmetry painting in Photoshop, here is what you do
[13:54:41] <Aria> Create a pane
[13:55:01] <Aria> UV map so a 1k by 2k is on the left, and mirrored on the right
[13:55:12] <Aria> Import into photoshop and paint!
[13:55:40] <Aria> That is terrible. Why do I need to have 3D objects in the scene for a 2D painting?
[13:56:28] <Apsup> Doesn't photoshop have plugins? Are you sure there is no "symmetry" plugin or something?
[13:57:03] <Aria> It does have plugin. None of the plugins it ships with have the feature. Though I'm sure it exists
[13:57:10] <Aria> But I don't want to pay for that, it should be a stock feature
[13:58:58] <Bronz|work> Wait, but hang on...
[13:59:13] <Bronz|work> I think I painted in standard Photoshop in symetry to make tilable textures.
[13:59:26] <Aria> Oh yeah?
[13:59:48] <Aria> I mean... that isn't how you make tillable textures
[13:59:50] <Aria> So are you sure?
[13:59:54] <Bronz|work> It was part of the process.
[14:00:15] <Aria> The way you make tillable textures is you make a low contrast picture, offset X and Y, and then hide the seam
[14:00:43] <Aria> Maybe that's what you're misremembering? That's the most standard way of making tillable textures
[14:00:53] <Bronz|work> Yeah, probably misremembering.
