[00:04:18] <chimera|work> yeah
[00:04:22] <chimera|work> just got a lot of windows to juggle =]
[00:11:41] <wjp> :-)
[00:11:51] <wjp> I know the feeling :-)
[00:14:35] <chimera|work> =]
[00:14:40] <chimera|work> this is Matt O by the way
[00:14:55] <wjp> ah, ok
[00:15:25] <wjp> hi :-)
[00:16:40] <chimera|work> =]
[00:16:48] <chimera|work> I started reading the first book in the Sword of Truth last night
[00:16:53] <chimera|work> Wizard's First Rule or whatever it's called
[00:17:03] <wjp> yes, that's the title
[00:17:12] <chimera|work> which means that I finished book 9 of Robert Jorda
[00:17:14] <chimera|work> jordan
[00:17:30] <wjp> great ending, right?
[00:17:42] <chimera|work> the book was excellent!
[00:17:46] <chimera|work> best one in the series!
[00:17:58] * wjp agrees
[00:18:44] <chimera|work> so now that I've finished it.. you can tell me what you couldn't tell me earlier =]
[00:19:03] <wjp> refresh my memory please :-)
[00:19:39] <chimera|work> I was hoping you could refresh mine LOL
[00:19:41] <wjp> something about Halima?
[00:19:44] <chimera|work> oh yeah...
[00:19:52] <chimera|work> who do you think Halima was?
[00:20:02] <chimera|work> I decided that Cyndane was Lanfear
[00:20:05] <wjp> I kind of assumed it was asangar/ossangar
[00:20:09] <wjp> (Halima)
[00:20:10] <chimera|work> although I can't ever remember reading about a Cyndane before
[00:20:16] <chimera|work> yes Halima seems to be Asangar\
[00:20:21] <wjp> Cyndane is relatively new, yes
[00:20:23] <chimera|work> osanager was Dashiva
[00:20:27] <wjp> yup
[00:20:31] <chimera|work> the guy who attacked Rand
[00:20:32] <wjp> (WH ending)
[00:20:50] <chimera|work> we also know that Mazrim Taim is bad news
[00:20:55] <wjp> true
[00:20:58] <chimera|work> I always thought that he was a good guy .. I was surprised
[00:21:04] <chimera|work> (I thought he could be trusted)
[00:21:11] <wjp> I read a _huge_ theory about him being forsaken :-)
[00:21:20] <chimera|work> oh yeah?
[00:21:29] <chimera|work> what about Lord Luc/Isam ?
[00:21:30] <wjp> some WoT FAQ somewhere
[00:21:34] <chimera|work> who is he trying to kill?
[00:21:38] <wjp> weird guy
[00:21:40] <chimera|work> (he accidently killed the wrong people)
[00:22:14] --> Fingolfin has joined #exult
[00:22:19] <wjp> hi Max
[00:22:25] <Fingolfin> hi wjp
[00:22:34] <wjp> I don't really remember all that much about Lord Luc/Isam
[00:22:40] --- Fingolfin has changed the topic to: exult - always get a warm welcom by wjp
[00:22:58] <Fingolfin> hm, do you know that our channel name is a bit misleading?
[00:22:59] <wjp> was he that 'slayer' from Tel'aran'rhiod?
[00:23:02] <Fingolfin> esp. with that topic ;)
[00:23:09] <wjp> Fingolfin: lol
[00:23:20] <Fingolfin> wjp: what is that? Tel'aran'whatever?
[00:23:36] <wjp> Wheel of Time series
[00:23:42] <Fingolfin> ah, 'k
[00:23:49] <wjp> a place in there, anyway
[00:24:58] <wjp> brb, again
[00:25:59] <Fingolfin> ok ok. I mean, I could tell you about the Rhu'fead on Darkover... ;)
[00:27:52] <chimera|work> wjp: yes he was Slayer
[00:28:18] <chimera|work> I guess it would be safe to check the Robert Jordan fan pages
[00:28:27] <chimera|work> no risk of spoilers
[00:29:51] <wjp> b
[00:29:59] <wjp> chimera|work: yes, that's what I thought :-)
[00:30:19] <wjp> it seems RJ has released a few tidbits that aren't in the books, though
[00:31:49] <wjp> not again.... brb...
[00:32:16] <chimera|work> I like tidbits =]
[00:35:15] <wjp> ...and back again
[00:35:23] <wjp> yes, I didn't really mind either :-)
[00:37:06] <wjp> were _are_ those prisoners?!?
[00:37:18] <wjp> s/were/where/
[00:37:19] <chimera|work> what prisoners?
[00:37:27] * wjp is playing Exile 3 :-)
[00:39:13] * Fingolfin will not give any clues to wjp
[00:39:29] <wjp> :-)
[00:42:49] * Fingolfin yawns
[00:42:52] <Fingolfin> aargh
[00:42:54] <Fingolfin> almost 2 AM
[00:42:59] <Fingolfin> I need to study tomorrow!
[00:43:07] <Fingolfin> well, good night, folks
[00:43:11] <wjp> night
[00:43:14] <Fingolfin> wjp: I will *not* tell you!
[00:43:15] <Fingolfin> ;)
[00:43:18] <wjp> lol
[00:43:22] <-- Fingolfin has left IRC (42)
[00:52:34] <wjp> a secret passage!
[00:52:41] <wjp> prisoners... prisoners...
[00:52:55] <wjp> finally!
[02:10:50] --> fridge has joined #exult
[02:12:10] <fridge> hey hey
[02:12:27] <wjp> hi
[02:15:20] --- wjp has changed the topic to: Welcome to the semi-official Exult channel!
[02:15:43] <fridge> there is a certification process?
[02:15:55] <wjp> certification? for what?
[02:16:10] <fridge> to be the OFFICIAL exult channel
[02:16:19] <wjp> :-)
[02:16:59] --- wjp has changed the topic to: Welcome to the official Exult channel!
[02:17:02] <wjp> why not :-)
[02:17:24] <wjp> btw, do you know what this 'exult' is?
[02:17:41] <fridge> ultima 7 engine
[02:17:47] <wjp> ok :-)
[02:18:09] <fridge> you can whip the data files from the dos version and play them on windows linux etc with enhancements/ extra bugs
[02:18:21] <wjp> I know... I'm one of the programmers :-)
[02:18:47] <fridge> HAR
[02:19:11] <wjp> I was only asking because sometimes people wander in here without knowing what it is :-)
[02:19:16] <fridge> no owonder its/was so buggy
[02:19:21] <fridge> doh
[02:19:31] <fridge> was going to say
[02:19:51] <fridge> no wonder it was buggy if you dont know what it was ;)
[02:19:58] <wjp> hehe :-)
[02:20:47] <fridge> played it ages ago, before it was playable like the normal ver, but the higher res was a nice bonus
[02:21:03] <fridge> havent had much time since
[02:21:29] <wjp> it plays really well lately
[02:21:43] <fridge> ultima 7 must of been v popular
[02:21:51] <wjp> some people even destroyed the black gate
[02:21:54] <wjp> yes, it was
[02:22:38] <fridge> for a clone of it to come out, i dont think there will be too many games where they get reverse engineered/ported by volunteers
[02:23:17] <wjp> true :-)
[02:28:23] <fridge> whats left to be done?
[02:28:37] <wjp> mostly bugfixing
[02:28:53] <wjp> also, I think a few spells aren't implemented yet
[02:29:12] <wjp> and the game-editing part of Exult is going to be expanded
[02:33:07] <wjp> time for me to go to bed
[02:33:08] <fridge> turnn off computer
[02:33:12] <fridge> open case
[02:33:16] <wjp> ?
[02:33:26] <fridge> sorry wrong chan

[18:56:54] <wjp> bbl
[18:56:55] <TonyHoyt> Cool. cool. btw: I almost got exult to compile. But then It got stuck trying to compile ucc. So I skipped that (commented it out from the makefile) And now it won't get past a point where it says it's tryign to find the c++ lib but can't. *Shrugs* Don't worry about it. I'm not that big on dealing with it soon.
