[13:49:23] <wjp> grr.... users... *sigh*
[13:49:41] <wjp> exultbot's host needed a new cpu fan, so I took it down, and ran exultbot on another machine temporarily
[13:49:53] <wjp> and then somebody _reboots_ that other machine
[13:50:11] <wjp> (while it's a public machine that should never be rebooted because people tend to run long calculations on it)
[13:50:13] <wjp> *sigh*
[13:50:56] <Coren_> Sucks.
[13:51:18] <wjp> and it's the same person I _repeatedly_ told not to reboot it
[13:52:04] <Coren_> Makes sence; had that person been able to grok the concept, you wouldn't have had to repeat the directive. By definition, if you *have* to repeat, then you will not be heeded.
[13:52:18] <wjp> :-)
[13:55:46] <Coren_> On an unrealted note: would you beleive I found a genuinely useful use for 3d texture maps? :-)
[13:55:52] <wjp> no :-)
[13:56:12] <Coren_> Well, I have. :-)
[13:57:24] <Coren_> With a 3d texture map and texture_env_dot3, I managed to do per-pixel diffuse lighting in a single texture pass! :-)
[13:57:52] <Coren_> Bump mapping with just one more. :-)
[14:00:06] <wjp> um, well, umm... *blank* :-)
[14:01:07] <Coren_> Simply put: LoW's lighting is going to look better than Q2 and Q3. :-)
[14:01:15] <wjp> ah, cool :-)
[14:02:20] <Coren_> And it's going to be fast on basically any 3d card >= GeForce 2
[14:03:06] * wjp looks at his poor tnt2ultra
[14:03:41] <Coren_> Might even be enough. It all depends on wether it supports arb_texture_env_dot3. If it does, then it'll be fast too.
[14:03:50] <wjp> how do I find out? :-)
[14:04:03] <wjp> (I'm not at home right now, though, so I can't check)
[14:04:21] <Coren_> Linux?
[14:04:26] <wjp> of course :-)
[14:04:29] <Coren_> glxinfo
[14:04:55] <wjp> ok, sounds easy enough :-)
[14:04:56] <Coren_> You'll get a long list of 'GL Extensions'. Look for 'GL_ARB_TEXTURE_ENV_DOT3' in there.
[14:05:31] <Coren_> 'GL_ARB_texture_env_dot3' even.

[19:31:50] <Dominus> hi wjp
[19:31:52] <Dominus> thanks for taking care of the beta 3 release
[19:34:21] <wjp> sure :-)
[19:34:42] <wjp> (watching StarTrek, btw, so I'm somewhat irregularly here :-) )
[19:35:29] <Dominus> he he, I just reloaded the game where I tried the edge of the world with the flying carpet. On reload I only fly the edge of the carpet now...
[19:35:54] <Dominus> the rest sits there, tight at the edge...
[19:36:01] <Dominus> Which StarTrek?
[20:00:34] <wjp> enterprise
[20:01:01] <wjp> season 1, ep 7
[20:01:01] <Dominus> how do you like t so far? OR better which episode/series are you at?
[20:01:06] <Dominus> :-)
[20:01:26] <wjp> hm, first ep I saw (ep 3) was quite weak, IMO
[20:01:30] <wjp> 4 and 5 were better
[20:01:35] <wjp> missed 6
[20:01:38] <wjp> 7 is ok, so far
[20:01:45] <wjp> bbl :-)
[20:01:49] <Dominus> ok
[20:13:01] <wjp> back
[20:13:20] <wjp> (and finished)
[20:18:06] <Dominus> and I'm gone :-)
