[10:01:19] * WishStone grins
[10:01:27] <WishStone> How's it comming along?
[10:01:44] --> Matt_O has joined #exult
[10:01:52] <wjp> oh, it's working, but I'm just wondering if there might be a better way to get it to work with both gimp 1.2 and gimp 2.0
[10:04:59] <WishStone> *smiles* Well, I can preach about Ultima Lore, I can companion you into UO...
[10:05:07] <WishStone> But THAT is something i might never know of, wjp ;D

[15:05:44] <Colourless> wishstone isn't "that" horrible ;-)
[15:05:45] <wjp> oooh, it worked :-)
[15:06:13] <Ranger> She's bad enuff
[15:06:16] --- Ranger is now known as WishStone
[15:13:44] <Colourless> hey... i just relized the millitary base at the south of the fallout2 map is the same one as at the top of the fallout1 map (of course this is pretty obvious isn't it)
[15:14:32] <WishStone> eer
[15:23:29] <wjp> yes :-)
[15:24:06] <wjp> the bottom region of F2 overlaps the top region of F1
[15:24:16] <Colourless> yeah
[15:24:48] <wjp> including Shady Sands and Vault 13
[15:25:05] <Colourless> of coures i'm playing the games in the backwards order so when playing fo2 i didn't have any idea that the base was also from the first game
[15:26:21] <Colourless> i knew about V13, V15 and NCR (but i didn't realize that Tandi was also in the first game, but i should have)

[16:50:55] <WishStone> Oh..
[16:50:59] <WishStone> okay, fair enough ;D
[16:52:09] <Baastuul> :D
[16:52:11] <Baastuul> What's up?
[16:52:43] <WishStone> Not much, doing a bit of COmpanion work in UO currently
[17:07:44] <Baastuul> Companion work?

[17:34:27] --> Ranger has joined #Exult
[17:34:33] --- Ranger is now known as WishStone
[17:34:38] <WishStone> Companions: UO's new player helpers
[17:34:42] <WishStone> Volunteers
[17:34:49] <WishStone> Only kind left not yet removed
[17:35:08] --- WishStone is now known as Wishy|away
[17:35:13] <Dominus> yet :-)
[17:35:27] <Colourless> :-)
[17:35:48] <Colourless> well, you'd think EA would have already done it by now if they were going too
[17:37:15] <Colourless> it's all purely because of legal reasons. Obviously there is some reason why they still have companions
[17:38:31] <Colourless> people like to blame ea for the volunteer issue, but it's actually the us government/legal system which caused the problems
[17:39:37] <Colourless> something about the volunteers could be seen as employees of EA and as such they would be being paid less than the minimum wage or some such rubish
[17:40:23] <Colourless> could also be a secondary reason where EA might be held accountable for the actions of the volunteers
[17:42:53] * Dominus nods
[17:42:59] <-- WishStone|away has left IRC (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
[17:44:08] <Colourless> how could wishstone possibly play UO over such an unstable internet connection
[17:44:28] <Dominus> he he

[18:00:06] <WishStone> Colourless:
[18:00:09] <WishStone> With great difficulties :P
[18:03:04] <Baastuul> I've been on dial-up for years because there isn't any broadband out where I live (barring satellite connections, but we all know that those connections suck). I played UO for about a year or so on dial-up, it wasn't too terrible. But there certainly were some annoying moments.
[18:03:17] <Baastuul> I also played Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds and Dark Age of Camelot over dial-up for quite a while.
[18:03:31] <WishStone> I'm not even on dail-up now... I'm on ISDN... but an unstaible con.
[18:03:34] <Baastuul> The Horizons beta ran like sludgecrap on dial-up, though.
[18:03:39] <Baastuul> Is it 64k or 128k ISDN?
[18:03:42] <WishStone> 3 years out of my 5 in UO now I played on Dail-up ;]
[18:03:47] <WishStone> 128
[18:04:11] * WishStone blames her fridge
[18:04:26] <Baastuul> Haha, your fridge?
[18:04:28] <Baastuul> Why your fridge?
[18:04:43] <WishStone> Because if it turns itself on or off, my modem dies a terrible death
[18:05:09] <Baastuul> Haha, I think that is the first time I have ever heard of a fridge interfering with an Internet connection.
[18:05:21] <WishStone> *mutters* It's NOT funny :P
[18:05:25] <Baastuul> Sorry. :(
[18:05:35] <WishStone> Most of the time I can simply recon...
[18:05:37] <Baastuul> How does it do it? Does the power redirect from your modem to your fridge or something?
[18:05:47] <WishStone> But sometimes I have to actually unplug it and plug it back on ;]
[18:06:01] <WishStone> If I KNEW; I wouldn't suffer from the problem anymore ;]
[18:06:40] <Baastuul> Maybe the wiring in your house is just funky. :)
[18:06:58] <WishStone> Dorm room *sigh* I guess either that, or the fridge is too old...
[18:07:37] <Baastuul> Mayhaps!
[18:07:40] <Baastuul> What're you studying?
[18:07:59] <WishStone> Home Economics and protestant religion for teaching grades 5-10 here in germany.
[18:08:16] <Baastuul> Cool. :)
[18:08:21] <WishStone> My studies will end in summer, when it will all go down the drain because I'll move to be with my hubby-to-be to Paris :P
[18:08:51] <Baastuul> :O
[18:09:14] <Baastuul> Won't you be able to put your degrees to work in France?
[18:09:23] <WishStone> France does not accept the german teaching degree :]
[18:09:40] <WishStone> If I want that, I'll have to go back to universety in france all over again.
[18:09:44] <Baastuul> So cross out "Germany" on the certificate and write "France." :D
[18:09:49] <WishStone> *LOL!!!*
[18:12:08] <-- Wishy|away has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[18:13:37] <Baastuul> Looks like her fridge turned back on.
[18:13:45] <Baastuul> Haha, nevermind.
[18:13:46] <WishStone> Nope, that was my old nick ;]
[18:13:49] <Baastuul> I thought you died again.
[18:13:51] <WishStone> Just died :]
[18:13:53] <Baastuul> :D
[18:14:00] <Baastuul> I use the /ghost command too much, it seems.
[18:14:05] <Baastuul> My connections don't last ofr much longer than 4 hours
[18:14:18] <WishStone> That one wasn't on my registered list, so i couldn't ghost it :]
[18:14:31] <Baastuul> Ah :)
[18:14:45] <Baastuul> I might go see Kill Bill 2 today, but I'm not sure if we'll be able to get tickets.
