[10:46:21] <Colourless> 2hi
[10:48:09] <DarkeLight> ++Greetings.
[10:49:21] <Colourless> pre-incremented greeting?!?!
[10:49:41] <Colourless> of coures i don't know what 'type' Greetings is, so it could be overloaded
[10:56:35] * DarkeLight must admit he doesn't know what type Greetings is either. *grin*
[10:59:51] <Colourless> Greetings is of type PluralNoun
[11:00:06] <Colourless> but i don't know any more than that

[16:21:30] <Colourless> hi
[16:32:03] --> Lord_Nightmare has joined #exult
[19:02:58] <Colourless> lots of activity here today :-)
[19:03:49] <Lord_Nightmare> yep
[19:04:16] <Lord_Nightmare> did that guy ever make his bug report? it seems two spells (time stop and something else) don't work right
[19:04:47] <Colourless> imbalance
[19:05:03] <Colourless> i have no idea if he filed a report :-)
[19:08:12] <Lord_Nightmare> well someone filed a report about time stop at least. i dunno if it was him
[19:09:25] <Lord_Nightmare> so what's been happening recently in the exult world?
[19:09:27] <Colourless> imo, those are useless spells in si anyway. by the time you can cast either of them, you don't really have a need for them
[19:11:07] <Colourless> in fact, i can't even really recall using them
[19:11:08] <Lord_Nightmare> someone (you?) mentioned that the lipsync data was found for the guardian's speech in the intro scene of BG, when can we expect to see that used in exult?
[19:11:50] <Colourless> i never said anything. and don't expect anything to happen quickly.... such is the ways of open source :-)
[19:14:03] <Lord_Nightmare> do you have any information about that data? maybe someone could make a quick and nasty hack to get it at least partially working, but they'd need to know where the lipsync data IS first....
[19:14:58] <Colourless> data is in intro.exe iirc
[19:15:07] <Colourless> not in a data file
[19:15:23] <Colourless> of course, there is a 5% chance i could be wrong
[19:15:27] <Lord_Nightmare> ok.... you know what offset?
[19:16:03] <Colourless> nope. i really don't know anything about it
[19:16:48] <Lord_Nightmare> d'oh. i guess i'll have to google for it
[19:17:22] <Colourless> was probably nadir or something who mentioned it
[19:28:39] <Lord_Nightmare> yeah i see nadir mentioned it, but he doesn't give any information about it....
[19:47:46] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[19:47:50] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[19:48:15] <Dominus> hi
[19:48:26] <Colourless> hi
[19:49:20] <Dominus> I can't really believe the last mail to the ML...
[19:50:10] <Fingolfin> ROTFL
[19:50:30] <Fingolfin> sometimes I wonder how humanity managed to get where it is now with such people around
[19:50:53] <Fingolfin> on second thought, scratch that - the existance of those people explains a lot :-)
[19:51:11] <Dominus> I can't even imagine a polite answer to that mail
[19:53:04] <Fingolfin> step 1: buy a brain
[19:53:13] <Fingolfin> step 2: learn how to read
[19:53:26] <Fingolfin> step 3: read our web site (at least the part which explains what exult is)
[19:53:44] <Fingolfin> step 4: combin the object from step 1 (brain) with what you read in step 3, and perform the process called "thinking"
[19:54:36] <Colourless> step 1 might be a problem. Ever Seen Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstien ?
[19:57:28] <Fingolfin> nope
[19:57:50] <Colourless> ok... i'll attempt to explain
[20:00:11] <Colourless> Dr Frankenstien sends off his idiotic servent to get a brain for his monseter. Being an idiot, the servan drops the container the good brain is in, and destroys it. Then as an alternaitce, he mistakenly pixks up an abnormal brain, thinking it's a normal brain. And that is what caused the monster to be well... a monster :-)
[20:10:29] <wjp> wow, professional-looking e-mail from "microsoft" asking me to install a patch they conveniently emailed me :-)
[20:11:41] <Dominus> you don't want to know how many of those I got in the last two weeks
[20:11:43] <wjp> really well done... I'm impressed :-)
[20:12:08] <wjp> complete with fancy icons, legalese, etc...
[20:12:16] <Colourless> i've gotten.... none
[20:15:21] <Colourless> i think my isp has installed some spam and email virus blockers
[20:15:40] <Colourless> all my emails are comming in with some extra headers indicating such
[20:16:03] <Colourless> and the total lack of spam over the last week or so is also a good indication :-)
[20:17:10] <Dominus> yep, seems so
[20:17:18] <Dominus> I get tons
[20:17:32] <wjp> first one for me
[20:17:53] <Dominus> I'm now using Thunderbird with the spam-learning and hope that one is getting rid of it...
[20:18:17] <wjp> http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/msmail.png
[20:18:37] <wjp> if only they'd gotten rid of the silly From address and the bad grammar
[20:18:58] <Dominus> oh, i didn't get one of those yet
[20:19:44] <Dominus> he he the Pentagram CVS mails from yesterday were first marked as spam by thunderbird...
[20:19:52] <Colourless> interesting
[20:20:17] <wjp> I got one false positive from our univ's spam filter so far
[20:20:22] <wjp> one of Colourless' emails, IIRC
[20:20:49] <Colourless> this is what i get in my headers for a pentagram cvs email

[20:24:19] <Colourless> click below?
[20:24:25] <Colourless> free trial?
[20:24:34] <Colourless> i'm guessing that is from thte stuff in the adds
[20:24:38] <Colourless> s/adds/ads/
[20:24:43] <wjp> yes
[20:25:02] <Colourless> well, the ads sort of are spam :-)
[20:25:05] <wjp> Free trial click here:
[20:25:43] <Colourless> just html... uncommon, if it was me who did it. usually i do text only
[20:26:47] <wjp> strangely the mail you replied to was non-html
[21:15:11] <Dominus> I believe that mail must be an hoax (the one to the ML, I mean). I just refuse to take it for real.
[21:17:09] <wjp> oh, I can easily believe it unfortunately
[21:17:51] <Dominus> :-(
