[10:24:27] <wjp> ugh... exam in 90 minutes :-)
[10:24:38] <Darke> Yay! Have fun! *grin*
[10:24:50] <wjp> I hate waiting for exams...
[10:25:30] <Fingolfin> hehe
[10:25:31] <wjp> uwadv 0.8 is out since yesterday, btw
[10:25:32] <Fingolfin> what kind of exam?
[10:25:41] <wjp> something OR related
[10:25:49] <wjp> 'inleiding besliskunde'
[10:26:21] <wjp> linear programming and some other optimalisation problems
[10:26:52] <Fingolfin> just don't come back here if you score worse than 9 then <g>
[10:27:10] <wjp> hm, I doubt a 9 is going to happen
[10:28:02] <wjp> so I guess there's a good chance I won't be coming back here anymore :-(
[10:28:08] <wjp> (at least not when Fingolfin's around ;-P )
[10:28:24] <Fingolfin> <g>
[10:28:42] <Fingolfin> I don't quite believe you that =) but of course I was just kidding... even with an 8 you can still come back
[10:28:56] <wjp> *phew* ;-)
[10:29:20] <wjp> you're too kind :-)
[10:29:38] <wjp> now can we talk about something other than that exam? :-)
[10:30:12] <wjp> oh, btw, you won't believe what I'll be doing tonight
[10:30:56] <wjp> I'll be running 7.9km around 3am... can hardly believe it myself :-)
[10:31:14] <wjp> there's this race called the "Batavierenrace" tonight and tomorrow
[10:31:35] <wjp> 175km in an 'estafette' (what's the english word for that?) with 20-25 people per team
[10:33:01] <Fingolfin> heh
[10:33:12] <Fingolfin> Staffellauf in german, let me look it up...
[10:33:28] * Darke hmms... running 8km is pretty much a normal work day to him... running it at 3am isn't however. *grin*
[10:33:32] <Fingolfin> "relay"
[10:33:34] <Darke> How did you get conned into that one? *grin*
[10:33:54] <wjp> basically they signed me up when I said I'd consider it :-)
[10:34:01] <wjp> and then I couldn't really back out of it anymore :-)
[10:34:20] <Fingolfin> 8km isn't that much, though, I used to do runs with a friend in the forest three times a week on 6-9 km :-)
[10:34:25] <Fingolfin> lol
[10:34:36] <Fingolfin> sounds like a great way to recruit volunteers =)
[10:34:53] * Darke laughs! Agreed!
[10:34:58] <wjp> yeah, 8km is doable
[10:35:07] <wjp> and yes :-)
[10:38:41] <wjp> I'm going to be really dead tomorrow... staying up a full night after a busy week like this one and running on top of that :-)
[10:38:51] <wjp> *sigh*
[10:38:52] <wjp> ah well :-)
[10:39:12] * Darke readies the reincarnation spells.
[10:39:32] <wjp> resurrection would be better :-)
[10:39:49] <Darke> Aww... you don't want to come back as something different?
[10:40:00] <wjp> reincarnation has this unfortunate side-effect that you end up in a newborn body
[10:40:12] * Darke checks the power in cattle prods. *zap* *yip!*
[10:40:23] <wjp> uh?
[10:40:30] * wjp backs away from Darke's cattle prod
[10:40:44] <wjp> (I don't quite trust it, even with several oceans and continents between us...)
[10:41:14] <Darke> Well, I have to check if you're *really* dead first don't I? Reincarnation/Ressurection spells won't work if you're still alive, y'know. Waste of reagents.
[10:41:43] <Fingolfin> no problem
[10:41:48] * Fingolfin readies a death bolt
[10:42:07] <Darke> Hrm... that *is* one way. Less fun though. *nodnod*
[10:42:57] <wjp> reminds of this joke: Two people are hunting together, when one of them suddenly falls down. The other one panics and calls 911 (or 112 or whatever). "My friend just fell down! I think he may be dead!". Operator: "Hm, first, can you make sure he's really dead?" *gunshot* "Ok, he's really dead"
[10:43:25] * Darke snickers. Yep.
[10:43:27] <wjp> (you do realize I'm not suggesting actually doing that with me tomorrow, I hope? ;-) )
[10:43:31] <Servus> How terrible! I was the one who got shot in the head.
[10:43:44] * wjp glares at Fingolfin: that includes Death Bolts too ;-)
[10:43:51] <Darke> wjp: *innocentlook* What?
[10:44:11] <Servus> reagants are a bit too clumsy for modern warfare i think... it'd be like manually loading a musket every shot!
[10:44:11] * Darke will test to see if wjp is dead with his cattle prod first. *nodnod* Don't worry.
[10:44:23] <Fingolfin> wjp: ohhhhhh ... :-( ok ok, if you insist
[10:44:30] <Fingolfin> I'll try to memorize that joke, though =)
[10:44:36] <Servus> night
[10:44:41] <Darke> Night.
[10:44:45] --- Servus is now known as ServusSominusZzz
[10:44:59] * wjp takes away Fingolfin's spellbook before he finds any other 'interesting' spells
[10:45:09] <wjp> night
[10:45:10] --> `daniel has joined #exult
[10:45:17] <Fingolfin> hey! that was mine! give it back
[10:45:29] <`daniel> hello
[10:45:35] <`daniel> how's exult going these days?
[10:46:51] <Darke> Umm... given the conversation just recently on the channel. Very, very surrealisticly. *grin*
[10:49:24] * Darke signs Tom Lehrer's "That's Mathematics".
[10:49:30] <Darke> s/signs/sings/
[10:51:09] <`daniel> just a slight question....
[10:51:37] <`daniel> if origon found the source code for ultima 7, would you feel like your work has been wasted?
[10:52:33] <Darke> Nope. The source for u7 would no doubt be rather a mess and unportable. It would also lack all the neat features we've added as we've rebuilt it.
[10:53:13] <Fingolfin> still, wouldn't it be intersting if we had the source 8-)
[10:53:27] <`daniel> well if the source code was found, would you perhaps borrow bits like the stealing function and proper part formation :P
[10:53:27] <`daniel> ?
[10:53:57] <`daniel> okay I don't mean to get into a debate over party formation ehre...
[10:53:58] <`daniel> hehe
[10:54:16] <`daniel> I know some developers have delusions of perfection to do with that aspect...
[10:54:23] <Darke> Sure. Or we could try to do it better our own way. IIRC, DrCode just started the exult map viewer because he wanted to learn X windows programming. *grin*
[10:55:02] <wjp> I originally joined in to learn win32 programming, btw :-)
[10:55:10] <wjp> funny how that turned out :-)
[10:55:17] * Darke doesn't have any delusions of such. A couple of his jobs have been to exactly replicate a running system, rebuilding it from scratch *with* the source. It's time consuming and deathly dull. *grin*
[10:55:19] <Fingolfin> everybody makes mistakes in his life, wjp, we know that =)
[10:55:26] <Darke> Yes, rather amusing. *grin*
[10:56:09] <Darke> Fingolfin: Yep! Now we've returned him to the right path, he can no longer be corruped by his Billness of Gates.
[10:57:13] * Darke waits for Colourless to come in and complain. *grin*
[10:58:22] <Fingolfin> hehe
[11:03:07] * Darke catagoricly denies attempting to torment Colourless! It wouldn't be nice, not to mention dangerous. *nodnod*
[11:11:26] <wjp> I guess I should be going... don't want to be late :-)
[11:11:40] <Darke> Suuuure you don't! *grin*
[11:11:53] * wjp sighs
[11:11:55] <`daniel> I was actually talking about the party formation with err.... delusions of perfection...
[11:11:57] * wjp tries to delay leaving some more
[11:11:58] * `daniel hides
[11:12:09] <wjp> anyway, bye :-)
