[03:09:18] <Servus> If time heals all wounds, how come the belly button stays the same?
[03:12:20] <`daniel> ehehe
[03:12:24] <`daniel> thats a good question
[03:12:25] <`daniel> well son
[03:12:36] <`daniel> a belly button is a characteriskic of birth
[03:12:47] <`daniel> the bello button defines us, it gives us personality
[03:13:04] <`daniel> and thus, if we had no belly button we would be null and unimportant
[03:13:11] <`daniel> than magical apes would roam the land enslaving humans
[03:13:21] <`daniel> and that son is why belly buttons are so crucial

[13:29:51] <-- Darke has left IRC (Killed (NickServ (Ghost: Jett!~Darke@m084-219.nv.iinet.net.au)))
[13:29:55] --- Jett is now known as Darke
[13:30:18] * Darke blames Colourless for him dropping off the server. Since Colourless wasn't here when he disappeared, and was here when he returned. *wizenod*
[13:30:21] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Darke
[13:30:36] <Colourless> punishment for yesterday
[13:30:48] * Darke pouts. Evil dragon.
[13:31:10] <Colourless> it is more fun role playing evil
[13:31:51] <Darke> Da. I've noticed. *grin*
[13:32:51] <Colourless> :-)
[13:45:45] <Colourless> "Everyone in attendance agrees that spam is pure evil." are they talking about the 'food' or the 'email' ?
[13:46:41] <Darke> Umm... email I think. I've got a can in the cupboard and it doesn't list "Pure Evil" on it's ingredients list.
[13:47:09] * Darke slooooooly backs away so he doesn't get clobbered.
[13:48:46] <Colourless> hehe
[13:52:28] * Colourless must note that his evil characters would never unleash spam onto the world
[13:52:49] <Colourless> you see, my evil characters are at least a little be intelligent
[13:53:45] <Darke> *nod* Spam isn't so much evil as stupid.
[13:54:37] <Colourless> much like me though, they aren't able to type to save their lives...
[13:56:41] <Colourless> but of course, most of my characters are from times when computers don't exist :-)
[13:57:07] <Darke> That's always helpful. *grin*
[14:25:13] <Colourless> now shockwave flash based adds, that too is evil...
[14:25:33] <Colourless> locks up ie
[14:28:04] <Darke> Yayfun. Used to lock up konquerer too for quite a bit until I somehow fixed it. *grin*
[14:28:32] <Colourless> i had enough of it, and deleted the plugin :-)
[14:28:37] <Colourless> that fixes it :-)
[14:29:05] <Darke> Oh, yeah, I remember now, that's how I fixed it too. *grin*
[14:29:54] <Colourless> one solution for all, regardless of operating system and browser :-)
[14:30:28] <Darke> Aren't standards *wonderful*! *beam*
[14:31:38] <Colourless> absolutely marvellous... no one wants flash to be a standard.. everyone wins :-)
[14:31:41] <Darke> <subvoice>This message brought to you by the ANSI/ISO consortium. Pay us large chunks of cash for copies of standards today!</>
[14:31:59] * Darke nodnods!
[14:33:04] <Eclair> haha
[14:33:19] <Eclair> *throws fireball at Darke*
[14:33:35] <Darke> All the artsy-fartsy types seem to love it though. My theory is it's just 'cause it enables them to crash a computer *more* effectively then the average programmer. So they feel vindicated or something. *noddle*
[14:33:40] * Colourless pauses the action
[14:33:40] * Darke yelps and dodges!
[14:34:24] <Colourless> as self appointed dungeon master, i forbid you from throwing fireballs at the rabbit
[14:34:37] <Colourless> i am the only one allowed to do such things
[14:34:54] <Darke> Eclair: I'd have thought Eclair would be using her lipstick/whip/thingie rather then a fireball. But it's not as if I can stop you. *grin*
[14:35:03] * Darke nodnods!
[14:35:50] * Colourless resumes the action
[14:37:51] * Darke wonders where that fireball went to. Ah well.
[14:38:13] * Colourless thinks he scared Eclair away
[14:38:41] <Eclair> HJAH
[14:38:58] <Eclair> how about an energy blast for desert? :)
[14:39:22] <Colourless> fluffy bunny?
[14:39:39] <Eclair> like your food well done or medium rare :)
[14:40:01] <Eclair> Colourless: nahh....
[14:40:11] <Eclair> just a cute toy that kills
[14:40:39] <Colourless> i don't eat rabbits...
[14:41:10] <Eclair> heh
[14:41:14] * Darke eats rabbits. They taste gooood!
[14:41:14] * Eclair is away: concert
[14:41:23] * Darke quickly denies any and all innuendo in that statement!
[14:41:52] <Colourless> hey, i'll eat humans... but only some...
[14:41:56] <Colourless> :-P
[14:42:03] * Colourless hides in shame
[14:42:28] * Darke innocentpreens.
[14:42:39] <Colourless> hehe
[14:50:21] * Darke turns his attentions from being innocent, back to writing code. *noddle*

[20:42:52] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[20:43:14] <Fingolfin> yo
[20:43:24] <Fingolfin> why did nobody tell me of this :-): http://linux.oreillynet.com/pub/a/linux/2003/04/24/exult.html
[20:46:10] <Fingolfin> just wait till the ScummVM interview is online, i won't tell you about that one either, for revenge 8-)
[20:49:01] <wjp> I would've told you if I knew about it :-)
[20:49:37] <Fingolfin> ah =)
[20:49:46] <Fingolfin> guess I should mail it to the list ?
[20:49:49] <wjp> ugh, why is the background in that menu screenshot purple?
[20:49:55] <wjp> (and why does it say '0.95cvs'?)
[20:49:56] <Fingolfin> yeah I wondered that, too :-)
[20:50:26] <Fingolfin> we took our FM synth from ScummVM?
[20:50:44] <wjp> could be
[20:55:09] <Soul|LOVE> FOR /L %f in (1,1,50000) do echo Hey > %f
[20:55:14] <Soul|LOVE> ^ for MFT enlargement
[21:09:01] <Matt_O> Fingolfin: neat, how did you find that?
[21:09:41] <Matt_O> I guess only Colourless knew about it :)
[21:15:14] <wjp> Jeff and Artaxerxes too, probably
[21:17:12] <Fingolfin> found it on O'reilly when searching for ScummVM, actually (checking if our interview is online yet :-)
[21:30:34] <wjp> Argh
[21:30:37] <wjp> not again
[21:30:43] <Soul|LOVE> oh yes
[21:30:51] <wjp> can't send mail to @...sourceforge.net again
[21:30:53] <Soul|LOVE> http://soulnet.tk/soulirl/dirtyroom.jpg
[21:31:17] <wjp> (because my ISP apparently doesn't have a postmaster@.. account)
[21:36:26] <wjp> yikes, that's a very appropriate filename :-)
[21:37:28] <wjp> Fingolfin: maybe the link to scummvm from that exult interview caused the spike in webhits? ;-)
[21:38:02] <Fingolfin> unlikely given that exult has no noticable spike =)
[21:41:13] <wjp> that's just because we get so many hits a couple of thousand more won't be noticable ;-P
[21:41:17] <wjp> *cough* :-)
[21:41:36] <Fingolfin> ahhh... yesss.... of course.... right... 8-)
[21:41:55] <Fingolfin> sadly SF.net is part of the big conspiracy and tampers our records :-/ https://sourceforge.net/project/stats/index.php?report=last_30&group_id=2335
[21:42:41] <wjp> well, SF's stats are always broken, so you can't really trust those anyway
[21:44:39] <Fingolfin> indeed
[21:45:00] <Fingolfin> I mean, how comes Fink, Exult, ScummVM and Pentagram are all not in the top 10, anyway?
[21:45:06] <Fingolfin> that's suspicious, isn't it?
[21:45:26] <wjp> very
[21:45:41] <wjp> they're obviously the best projects on all of SF :-)
[21:54:15] <Matt_O> that's right
[22:00:18] <Fingolfin> although python isn't too shabby either... it might be OK for it to be come #5 or #6 or so
[22:00:22] <Fingolfin> *cough*

[23:43:26] <Matt_O> hi dommy
[23:45:24] <Dominus> he he
[23:45:28] <Dominus> what a reaction
[23:46:35] <Dominus> wow, our studio dev needed files pack is sure big now...
[23:48:37] <wjp> hm, 3Mb?
[23:48:54] <Dominus> nope 9 MB
[23:49:08] <Dominus> http://exult.sourceforge.net/snapshots/exult_studio_dev_win32.zip
[23:49:36] <Dominus> I meant the fpackage Kirben prepared for compiling it on win32
[23:49:47] <wjp> oh, it's not on our download page yet?
[23:50:35] <Dominus> oh, it is as you can see by the link but it is only mentioned in readme.win32
[23:51:11] <Dominus> and Kirben never announces when he updated one of dev packages
[23:58:18] <wjp> hm, it's getting a bit late
[23:58:23] <wjp> I guess I should go :-)
[23:58:24] <wjp> night
[23:58:32] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz...")
[23:58:32] <Dominus> k
[23:58:35] <Dominus> bye
