[11:47:13] <wjp> hi
[11:52:47] <Darke> Hi!
[12:08:33] <wjp> hm, I need to go again... train to catch :-)
[12:08:58] <wjp> if Fingolfin is in here in ~2 hours, remind him he has to pick me up from the station ;-)

[12:47:11] <Colourless> !iH
[12:51:03] * Darke turns Colourless around the right way. Hi!
[12:51:21] <Colourless> tahw?
[12:51:27] <Colourless> ah dammit
[12:51:35] <Colourless> screwed that one up
[12:52:01] * Darke snickers.
[12:52:49] <Colourless> when you view the exult homepage, are you getting '<<<<<<< main.tpl ' appearing in the top left hand corner of the page?
[12:54:18] <Darke> Yes.
[12:54:38] * Darke snorks. Looks like a merge conflict! *grin*
[12:54:42] <Colourless> :-)
[12:54:52] <Darke> Scroll down and you'll see a second copy of the page. *grin*
[12:55:13] <Colourless> it is :-)
[12:55:33] <Colourless> hehe, funny
[12:56:09] <Colourless> guess i had better fix it
[12:57:06] <Colourless> but i have to work out which file the conflict is in
[13:00:52] <Colourless> ok that's it
[13:14:08] --> phxl_ has joined #exult
[13:14:15] <phxl_> hello
[13:14:42] * Darke yays! Page works now. *grin*
[13:14:44] <Darke> Hi!
[13:15:03] <phxl_> ^_^
[13:16:09] <Colourless> hi
[13:16:27] <phxl_> rejoice, for I am back... or something!
[13:18:13] * Darke rejoices for something! Err... or something?
[13:57:05] --> Fingolfin has joined #exult
[13:57:06] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[13:57:15] <Fingolfin> yo
[13:57:25] <Colourless> hi
[13:57:53] <Colourless> message from wjp:
[13:57:53] <Colourless> [12:08:58] <wjp> if Fingolfin is in here in ~2 hours, remind him he has to pick me up from the station ;-)
[13:57:54] <Colourless> :-)
[13:58:00] <Darke> Hi! I take it you remembered/you're remembering to pick up wjp? *grin*
[13:58:07] <Colourless> current time is:
[13:58:08] <Colourless> [13:57:25]
[13:58:12] <Fingolfin> haha =)
[13:58:23] <Fingolfin> he said he'd arrive at 15:30
[13:58:26] <Fingolfin> which is in 32 minutes
[13:58:35] <Fingolfin> unless he took a different train ?!?
[13:59:17] <Colourless> well, that is still ~2 hours after his message
[13:59:24] <Darke> He said about two hours. I figure he wanted to make sure you remembered with sufficient time to wander down there. *grin*
[13:59:50] <Fingolfin> yeah =)
[13:59:57] <Fingolfin> I only came in here to check if he's really gone <g>
[14:00:07] <Fingolfin> will take me 5-8 minutes to walk to the station
[14:00:38] <Colourless> so, wjp is taking a train from the city he is in, to the city you are in?
[14:00:52] <Colourless> or are you in the same city?
[14:00:59] <Fingolfin> he takes a train to the city I am in
[14:01:04] <Fingolfin> he is living in Leiden, I live in Eindhoven
[14:01:11] <Fingolfin> that's about 130 km
[14:01:19] <Fingolfin> next time, I'll visit him :-)
[14:01:46] <Fingolfin> trains from Leiden arrive here at :54 and :24 it seems, so i guess he'll arrive at 15:24
[14:01:59] <Colourless> drake and i, both in the same country, if one of us were to take a train to the other, it would take something like 2 or 3 days :-)
[14:03:32] * Darke ponders. That sounds about right. If only because You'd have to divert through Melbourne and Sydney to get here, I think. *grin*
[14:03:42] <Colourless> yeah
[14:04:41] <Fingolfin> hehe
[14:05:19] <Fingolfin> well, even my home city, darmstadt, is only 4 hours with car from Eindhoven, so in theory, i could traval from there to Leiden in, say, 5.5 hours or so
[14:06:04] <Colourless> Adelaide to Brisbane would be a 3 and a bit hour flight if i recall correctly
[14:06:56] <Fingolfin> how much does such a flight cost, rougly? (order of magnitude)
[14:07:14] <Colourless> a few hundred $AUD
[14:07:30] * Darke nods. Yep. Coincidentally Mt Isa to Brisbane is about two and a half (they're both at opposite ends of the state of Queensland), it's a two day, 8 hours a day, drive.
[14:07:38] <Fingolfin> how was the exchange cours $USD <-> $AUD again?
[14:08:03] <Colourless> $1 AUD ~= $0.56US
[14:08:55] <Darke> You can catch a flight between 'main' airports (brisbane/sydney/melbourne at least, haven't checked for others) for as little as $100 one way.
[14:09:26] <Fingolfin> well, i am looking forward to the first international Exult conference, where we all meet <g>. As soon as I make my first million, I'll sponsor the flight for all of us 8-)
[14:09:45] <Colourless> can get a flight leaving tomorrow from Adel->Bris with virginblue for 'only' $165.00 AUD (one way)
[14:09:56] <Darke> For a relative price comparison, going out and purchasing a 'new release' PC game will cost about AU$80-90, a playstation/x-box, AU$100.
[14:10:20] <Darke> PS/X-box game that is. *grin*
[14:10:25] <Colourless> :-)
[14:11:01] <Darke> x-boxes sell for AU$300 down at the local Hardly Normal, err, Harvey Norman.
[14:11:16] <Colourless> :-)
[14:14:26] <Fingolfin> anyway, I should be living in a minute
[14:14:56] <Darke> What? You're dead now? *innocentlook*
[14:15:03] <Colourless> hehe
[14:15:26] <Darke> So who's the necromancer going to be?
[14:16:06] <Colourless> himself? He could be a Liche
[14:17:24] <Darke> Might work. I'm still not sure whether undead are really classified as 'living' though.
[14:18:01] <Fingolfin> well, undead
[14:18:34] <Colourless> well, the point was, being a Liche he might make himself living again :-)
[14:18:48] <Fingolfin> but in reality, I just can't spell, I really wanted to say "I should be living in 5 minutes"
[14:19:16] <Colourless> or maybe not :_)
[14:19:23] <Fingolfin> which is now, and since I am now alive, I can go and pick up wjp =)
[14:19:27] --- Fingolfin is now known as Fingolfin|afk
[14:19:29] <Colourless> s/:_)/:-)
[14:19:45] * Darke blinks... umm... that's what you did say, 'cept you said 'a minute' in the first one. *grin*
[14:20:08] <Fingolfin|afk> Darke: yeah, it takes me more than 1 minutes to get alive
[14:20:19] * Darke ahhs. Ok.
[14:20:29] <Colourless> i see
[14:23:52] * Colourless notes another surreal moment in #exult
[14:25:08] <Darke> There's other moments in #exult? *blink*
[14:26:12] * Colourless shrugs his shoulders
[14:26:14] <Colourless> i don't know
[14:27:15] * Darke finds himself mentally working out a forcing function to create the optimal environment for cultivating surrealness. Typos (Colourless, oh, and anyone else who wanders by), half asleep randomness (myself!) and just plain boredom (everyone?).
[14:27:51] * Colourless adds not wanting to do any actual programming work to the list
[14:27:57] * Darke pulls across a whiteboard and tries to draw a graph of it.
[14:28:04] * Darke attaches that to it too.
[14:28:52] * Darke adds himself to the 'not wanting to do actual programming' list. He's been trying to force himself to do a bit more work on this compiler all day, and not succeeding at all. *grin*
[14:29:25] * Colourless knows that he should really be working on the half started graphics engine
[14:30:10] * Colourless sings out "Ode to talking in third person!"
[14:30:52] * Darke wonders if wjp knows he should be working on the half written usecode interpreter, rather the (*gasp!*) socialising!
[14:31:11] * Colourless is sure that wjp know
[14:31:16] <Colourless> s
[14:33:13] * Darke yawns and decides to leave Colourless here to talk to himself, as he wanders off to sleep. *grin* Night!
[14:33:29] * Colourless grabs Darke's arm, "You will not leave!"
[14:33:51] * Darke earperks, "Oh? Why not? *blink*"
[14:34:41] * Colourless ponders, "because this is where you belong"
[14:35:25] * Darke hmms... "Ok. Err... how about I crawl up and fall asleep on the couch then?"
[14:35:59] * Colourless says, "That is ok as long as I can kick you to wake you up!"
[14:36:01] <Darke> "That way you'd be talking to a sleeping bunny, rather then to yourself." *nodnod*
[14:36:45] * Darke grins. "That probably won't work, I'm a rather heavy sleeper."
[14:38:23] * Colourless yells, "Depart fool! Your failure at 3rd person is appaling"
[14:39:56] * Darke curls up on the comfortable couch. "Nah, I'm staying and sleeping. See you in the morning when you might be a bit more cheerful. *grin* Night!"
[14:41:09] --- Darke is now known as DarkeZzz
[14:41:31] <Fingolfin|afk> <wjp> hi :-)
[14:41:45] --- Fingolfin|afk is now known as Fingolfin
[14:42:11] <DarkeZzz> Gu! Vtw!
[14:42:47] <DarkeZzz> Err... should check fingers are in the right place when typing in a darkened room. *grin*
[14:43:06] * DarkeZzz disappears again. *grin*
[14:43:09] * Colourless is startled because of Fingolfin's apparent identity crisis
[14:43:29] <Fingolfin> we are FingolfinWJP! We will assimiliate you!
[14:43:44] <Colourless> sounds like bad news
[14:43:49] <Fingolfin> Your spelling mistakes are ours! Spell checking is futile!
[14:44:11] <Colourless> i guess you want to assimilate me for my 'colourless' technology no?
[14:44:43] <Colourless> or do you just end up assimilating all the bad traits?
[14:45:05] <DarkeZzz> Punctuuuaaaate! Punctuaaate! Err... wrong evil mechanical creatures.
[14:45:26] * DarkeZzz is -really- gone.
[14:45:40] * Colourless doubts that very muc
[14:45:40] <Colourless> h
[14:47:15] <Fingolfin> DarkeZzz: are you gone already?
[14:47:40] <Fingolfin> Colourless: nah your ... 'colourless technology' is not what we are looking for...
[14:47:49] <Fingolfin> it's the wrong british style ou we are going to take!!! muwahaha
[14:47:57] <Colourless> good, cause you aren't getting it
[14:48:18] <Fingolfin> bah
[14:48:29] <Colourless> now that you can have, because it wont cause the destruction of me when you assimilate it
[14:48:56] <Fingolfin> <g>
[14:49:07] --- Fingolfin is now known as Fingoulfin
[14:49:25] <Fingoulfin> oh wait
[14:49:31] --- Fingoulfin is now known as Finghoulfin
[14:49:34] <Colourless> :-)
[14:49:43] <Finghoulfin> I am still undead, you know =)
[14:49:46] <Colourless> you have reached a state of perfection
[14:49:51] <Finghoulfin> DarkeZzz seems to be really gone
[14:49:53] <Finghoulfin> lol
[14:50:31] * Colourless say that logical Finghoulfin extension too
[14:52:27] <Finghoulfin> say? saw?
[14:52:47] <Colourless> something like that
[14:53:50] <Finghoulfin> anyway, We have to leave (live?) now
