[14:23:42] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[15:09:34] --> i30817 has joined #exult
[15:15:05] <i30817> could you patch exult to try pick up it's config dir in linux from "~/.config/exult/" dir first? I think that is the new standard now.
[15:15:07] <i30817> or is that a compile time switch too?
[15:42:29] <Lightkey> i30817: ooh, do you have any Portuguese LucasArts adventure games perchance? or do you know anyone who has?
[15:43:09] <i30817> No, only english versions. Puns do not translate well at all
[15:43:49] <Lightkey> ah well..
[15:45:12] <i30817> it's what encouraged me to proficiency in reading english, which then opened up the world of english literature, so i can't complain
[15:45:38] <Lightkey> my quest continues then
[15:46:38] <Dominus> were these ever translated?
[15:47:36] <Lightkey> yes
[15:47:57] <Lightkey> both Portuguese and Brasilian Portuguese versions exist
[15:48:00] <Dominus> anyway, i30817 if you patch exult or use a different configure setting, please make sure you document that. and in case of a patch it might be good to patch the documentation as well, since people need to be aware that the online docs don't match your forky ppa :)
[15:49:51] <Dominus> Lightkey: I'm mostly with i30817, puns don't translate well and games and literature are best played/read in the original language *if you can read that language* :)
[15:50:11] <Lightkey> AOL
[15:50:17] <Lightkey> but that's not the point
[15:51:01] <Dominus> example is a work by haruki murakami, the german translation was based on the English translation and thus the book became much more sexually rude - language wise, than it is originally :)
[15:51:16] <Dominus> translation of a translation :)
[15:56:20] <sh4rm4> happy XXX-mas
[15:56:40] <sh4rm4> did you get a new child as present, Dominus ?
[15:56:43] <Lightkey> god Jul..
[16:13:46] <Dominus> sh4rm4: on the 20th ;)
[16:14:15] <sh4rm4> congrats
[16:14:54] <Dominus> thanks.
[16:14:59] <sh4rm4> boi or grrrl?
[16:15:30] <Dominus> it's a boy
[16:15:56] <sh4rm4> dominus the younger
[16:16:21] <Dominus> bah, nooo ;)
[16:17:11] <Dominus> it's the 2nd son so that "honor" would have been passed already...
[16:17:20] <sh4rm4> oh i c
[16:17:50] <sh4rm4> as an american you would call him dominus junior II
[16:18:00] <sh4rm4> or dominus III
[16:18:13] <Dominus> otoh, my almost stepbrother named all of his children John. after himself and his father
[16:18:24] <sh4rm4> haha
[16:18:29] <Dominus> but they are a bunch of dicks
[16:18:38] <Dominus> literally...
[16:18:46] <sh4rm4> when he calls them, does he shout "hey, john number 2" ?
[16:18:52] <Dominus> john william dick...
[16:18:55] <sh4rm4> lol
[16:19:24] <Dominus> it's an hilarious story...
[16:20:23] <Dominus> so Jwd the senior was partnered to my mother who had returned to her maiden name "Layher"
[16:20:49] <Dominus> so it was Lay her + Dick ;)
[16:21:00] <sh4rm4> lmao
[16:21:09] <Dominus> JWD has a daughter called Tanya
[16:21:17] <Dominus> Tan ya Dick
[16:21:27] <sh4rm4> :D
[16:21:29] <Dominus> the fun never stops
[16:21:55] <Dominus> Jwd Junior marries a chinese woman named Helena
[16:22:16] <Dominus> of course that was her English name
[16:22:34] <Dominus> at the wedding her true name was revealed as Hung
[16:22:48] <sh4rm4> hung dick hahah
[16:22:54] <Dominus> yep
[16:23:36] <Dominus> their sons are Jwd III, John Austin Presley and John Elvis Lee
[16:23:47] <sh4rm4> omfg
[16:24:01] <Dominus> and it's all true ;)
[16:24:13] <sh4rm4> that's hilarious
[16:24:39] <Dominus> the sons are called John John, Austin and Elvis
[16:24:58] <Dominus> to make it a bit less evil
[16:25:29] <sh4rm4> john john doesnt really make sense...
[16:25:49] <Dominus> the most fun i had when I asked Jwd senior to fetch me the album by the band Prick (some 21 years ago)
[16:26:14] <Dominus> yeah john john doesn't make sense but it stuck
[16:26:53] <Dominus> so that is the story about a bunch of dicks
[16:27:39] <sh4rm4> tell them to call their next son dick
[16:27:42] <sh4rm4> dick dick
[16:28:07] <sh4rm4> or nick :)
