[00:51:04] <smatthews> We're all gonna die!
[00:51:32] <Baastuul> Oh noes!
[00:51:41] <Baastuul> Blech, stupid analytic trigonometry!
[00:52:04] <smatthews> I'll trade you five tensors and raise you a gradient curl.
[00:52:33] * Baastuul shoots smatthews in the face with a glock.
[00:52:44] * smatthews has a 2.0+ K/D ratio.
[00:52:58] <Baastuul> Hey, speaking of glocks, did you see that thing on the news of the big gun safety instructor guy who shot himself in the foot during a class?
[00:53:20] <smatthews> I don't watch the news.
[00:53:33] <Baastuul> During my Current World Issues class, the teacher showed us the clip on some website.
[00:53:47] <Baastuul> The guy was like, "I'm the only one professional enough to handle this glock .40 in this classroom."
[00:53:52] <Baastuul> And then he shot himself in the foot by accident.
[00:54:17] <smatthews> He brought a loaded gun to a classroom?
[00:54:22] <Baastuul> Yeah.
[00:55:05] <smatthews> My boss wants me to use Ruby because it 'sounds cool'. o.O
[00:55:19] <Baastuul> What is Ruby?
[00:56:52] <smatthews> A Perlish language.
[00:57:18] <Baastuul> What languages can you program in?
[00:58:26] <smatthews> Err, you're expecting a comprehensive list?
[01:03:16] <sbx> Yep.
[01:03:30] <Baastuul> Yes.
[01:07:27] <smatthews> Urgh. Okay, but I'm sure I'll forget several. Chronologically... Pascal, C, GW-Basic, Intel x86, C++, C++/MFC, Visual Basic, Perl, awk, JavaScript, PHP, ARBVP, ARBFP, Lua, Mel, Cal, C++.NET, C#, VB.NET... All I can think of right now.
[01:08:15] <smatthews> Oh and some funny stuff like BF and TI-BASIC of course.
[01:10:08] <Baastuul> What is BF?
[01:10:14] <sbx> I think that's more than Darke.
[01:10:17] <smatthews> It would be rude to say.
[01:10:34] <smatthews> There's a lot more I want to learn.
[01:25:20] <smatthews> Oh, does PL/SQL count?
[01:27:28] <Baastuul> Sure, why not.
[01:27:33] <Baastuul> Do you know HTML?
[01:29:37] <smatthews> And CSS.
[01:30:46] <smatthews> I think my own site turned out well, CSS-wise. Look at it in Firefox and try disabling CSS. :>

[02:47:46] <Sevalecan> is there not one person who doth understand mine sillyness?
[02:50:32] <sbx> Nay.
[02:53:30] <-- Khelz has left IRC ()
[03:22:57] <sbx> my mouse is acting up again
[03:23:00] <sbx> phantom clicks
[03:31:10] * Sevalecan whips out the impact wrench
[03:31:17] * Sevalecan works on sbx's mouse furiously
[03:55:55] <sbx> still acting wierd
[03:56:27] <Baastuul> What kind of a mouse do you have, sbx?
[03:56:52] <sbx> PS/2
[03:57:26] <sbx> After changing to a new mouse the problems went away for a long time.
[03:57:36] <sbx> so I assumed it was just that mouse
[03:59:35] <Baastuul> No, I mean what kind of mouse do you have?
[03:59:42] <Baastuul> Logitech Optical?
[04:00:14] <sbx> no its a4tech
[04:00:25] <sbx> much cheaper

[04:38:52] <sbx> Anyone know how to type latin characters with Japanese encoding in WinXP/Notepad? (and saved as ANSI text)
[04:45:11] <sbx> Oh, I think I found it. (set Japanese Region + text input services, and you get a language bar where you can select one of the input options)
[04:52:33] <sbx> And now I know how to type that little circle period in Japanese.
[04:53:02] <sbx> And the backwards commas too, but they aren't as interesting.
[05:24:40] <Ordoc> sbx: lol
[05:25:17] <Ordoc> you know japanese?

[14:02:13] <Baastuul> I woke up at 3:11 this morning from a very strange dream, but it was just a momentary wakefulness, I fell back asleep again.
[14:02:28] <Baastuul> But anyway, I checked my IRC logs to check if anything happened at 3:11 AM, but nothing happened!
[14:02:55] <Baastuul> However, at 3:01 approximately, my connection dropped and automatically reconnected and then somebody greeted me. :O
[14:03:12] <Baastuul> [2005-04-19][03:17:27] <sbx> hi Baastuul
[14:03:19] <Baastuul> And you did too, 6 minutes after the critical moment!

[22:56:52] <Curiousis-2> Hello folks... I was just wondering if anyone can remember which NPCs in Ultima 7-Black Gate French have problems with Dupr's name? I've been playing my copy I have installed but I think it's the version I fixed.
[23:00:15] <Curiousis-2> I know Jaana and Katrina were broken and I'm certain there was one other...
[23:01:04] <wjp> is jhoeksma one of your aliases?
[23:01:18] <wjp> I keep mixing them up :-)
[23:01:25] <Curiousis-2> yes, yes it is...
[23:01:29] <wjp> if so, you have indeed fixed that :-)
[23:01:37] <Curiousis-2> jhoeksma, Curiosus. Gruck
[23:01:44] <wjp> at least, that's what usecode_bugs.txt says
[23:02:01] <wjp> it also says that I should get around to disassembling the fix to include in that file
[23:02:08] <wjp> which kind of implies that I at least have it somewhere
[23:02:26] <Curiousis-2> I know I fixed it... but I lost my patch I made but kept my copy of U7French installed... Which ironically has all the changes made
[23:02:47] <wjp> ugh, 21 april _2003_ :-)
[23:02:55] <Curiousis-2> So I have a fixed copy of U7French and could remake the patch if I could remember who was broken
[23:03:04] <Curiousis-2> I may have to resort to Pirating!
[23:03:21] <wjp> shall I forward your email from back then back to you?
[23:03:28] <Curiousis-2> You still have that?
[23:03:34] <Curiousis-2> Uhmm.. that'd be great!
[23:03:40] <wjp> it's flagged as important in my exult folder :-)
[23:03:45] <wjp> i.e., "todo" :-)
[23:04:06] <-- Baastuul has left IRC (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
[23:04:08] <Curiousis-2> haha... I figured I'd make it into a nice usecode file and post it on esguides.com

[23:08:16] <Curiousis-2> Well... up until about a year ago my email ended in .is2.dal.ca instead of .dal.ca
[23:08:21] <Curiousis-2> is2.dal.ca no longer works
[23:08:33] <wjp> no, there wasn't
[23:08:49] <Curiousis-2> O.K. than I guess I just need to be more patient
