[20:13:31] <wjp> hi
[20:13:39] <wjp> first exam today...
[20:13:53] --- matt__ is now known as chimera|wookin
[20:14:11] <wjp> you could score a grand total of 140 points... 100 was already enough for a 10 (==highest grade here)
[20:18:07] <Colourless> hmmm, why is the grading like that?
[20:18:17] <Colourless> hi btw
[20:18:31] <wjp> not a clue...
[20:18:41] <wjp> maybe not enough people passed the exam last year ;-)
[20:18:49] <Colourless> perhaps.
[20:19:03] <Colourless> It was pretty quiet around here
[20:19:03] <Colourless> [0:52] *** ChanServ sets mode: +o Colourless
[20:19:03] <Colourless> [5:42] *** wjp (wjp@4dyn205.ogt.casema.net) has joined #exult
[20:19:25] <wjp> last couple of days didn't show much activity either
[20:21:58] <chimera|wookin> hi =]
[20:22:02] <wjp> "NOTE: You are reading a static HTML page to avoid "/." effects..." :-)
[20:22:37] <wjp> (linux filesystems benchmark page at http://bulma.lug.net/static/)
[20:24:48] * Colourless has things to do
[20:25:00] --- Colourless is now known as Cless|Away
[20:25:04] <wjp> have fun :-)
[20:25:09] <wjp> and see you later
[21:04:40] * Cless|Away is back

[21:17:07] <wjp> wb
[21:17:37] <wjp> hmm, weekly update time I guess
[21:17:41] <wjp> bah :-)
[21:20:57] <Colourless> :)
[21:23:33] <wjp> SFX packs are described in the FAQ right? (I hope :-) )
[21:23:47] <Colourless> as far as I know, yes
[21:23:59] <chimera|wookin> Dominik's FAQ? hehe
[21:24:10] <wjp> yeah, that's the official FAQ now
[21:24:15] <Colourless> :)
[21:24:17] <chimera|wookin> oooh official!
[21:24:20] <Colourless> you'd think we would know
[21:26:38] <wjp> boy, I just love vi with a 200ms ping :/
[21:27:31] <wjp> make that 300 :-(
[21:27:36] <wjp> ah well, all done now :-)
[21:27:38] <chimera|wookin> =]
[21:27:54] <chimera|wookin> wjp: I was looking at my stack of Sword of Truth books last night.. I think I might read them all again hehe
[21:28:00] <wjp> I actually had an average ping of 1.5 _seconds_ a couple of days ago...
[21:28:24] <wjp> chimera|wookin: yeah, they look tempting don't they ;-)
[21:28:35] <chimera|wookin> I can't take waiting for book 7!
[21:28:48] <wjp> don't remind me :-)
[21:29:07] <chimera|wookin> oh sorry.. hehe
[21:29:14] <wjp> any clue on when? (or the title maybe?)
[21:29:27] <chimera|wookin> I haven't been to the fansites for a long time =(
[21:29:41] * wjp hasn't been to fansites. period. :-)
[21:30:11] <wjp> talking about release dates.. any ETA on WoT 10?
[21:30:13] <chimera|wookin> I went to one or two and read a few interviews
[21:30:16] <chimera|wookin> he seems like a cool guy hehe
[21:30:23] <chimera|wookin> didn't book 9 just barely come out? hehe
[21:30:30] <chimera|wookin> or was that 1999? I thought it was 2000
[21:30:36] <wjp> Robert Jordan was in the Netherlands a few weeks ago
[21:30:42] <chimera|wookin> oh yeah?
[21:30:51] <wjp> just a few dozen kilometers from where I live even
[21:30:57] <chimera|wookin> did you go?
[21:31:06] <wjp> I only heard about it the day before :/
[21:31:25] <chimera|wookin> Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman were here recently... I wanted to go, but it was very short notice
[21:31:43] <wjp> two people at work I know went, though
[21:32:07] <wjp> who?
[21:32:20] <wjp> :-)
[21:32:45] <chimera|wookin> the authors of the original Dragonlance series as well as Death Gate Cycle and others
[21:33:07] <wjp> Dragonlance sounds familiar
[21:34:40] * wjp sighs...
[21:34:45] <wjp> I don't really feel like doing anything
[21:34:50] <chimera|wookin> the Dragonlance chronicles were the first 3 books...
[21:35:15] <chimera|wookin> then a bunch of other authors wrote a bunch of other books in the Dragonlance world
[21:35:27] <chimera|wookin> there are probably 100 Dragonlance books now ...
[21:35:42] <wjp> eek... quite a few :-)
[21:35:44] <chimera|wookin> I used to read quite a few of them, but most of them weren't worth the time
[21:36:04] <chimera|wookin> the authorized ones (by Weiss & Hickman) were good though hehehe
[21:36:46] <wjp> hmmm, portscan on port 27374... _again_
[21:36:52] <wjp> I wonder what's so interesting about that one
[21:37:24] <chimera|wookin> you have a portscan detector?
[21:37:32] <wjp> my brother actually 'caught' the trojan listening on that port once :-)
[21:37:38] <wjp> nah, just browsing /var/log/messages
[21:37:43] <chimera|wookin> o
[21:37:48] <chimera|wookin> mandrake, eh?
[21:37:53] <wjp> RH71
[21:37:53] <Colourless> hmm. Ports in the 27000 range are generally used by quake engine servers
[21:38:27] <wjp> this one is called sub7
[21:38:36] <wjp> it records all keystrokes
[21:39:06] <chimera|wookin> you're not using mandrake anymore?
[21:39:12] <wjp> nah, didn't like 8
[21:39:35] <chimera|wookin> wow I didn't think you'd ever give it up
[21:39:42] <wjp> switched to RH71 + XFS
[21:39:56] <wjp> my router has been running RH all along, btw
[21:40:27] <wjp> main reason I installed mandrake on my main pc is that the RH install segfaulted on it :-)
[21:42:31] <wjp> hmmm... issa seems to think it's May 25th, 3:45 am
[21:42:56] <chimera|wookin> hehe issa!
[21:43:10] <chimera|wookin> it's 3:45 pm here
[21:43:59] * wjp kicks issa back into the present
