[00:07:47] <Fingolfin> I didn't know there was a set limit =)
[00:08:05] <Fingolfin> there was almost nothing on rand in that book :-/
[00:08:10] <Fingolfin> in fact
[00:08:18] <Fingolfin> I think he has too many story lines going on at once
[00:08:26] <Fingolfin> a "classical" story has 4 parallel plots
[00:09:14] <Fingolfin> here we have: Rand, Mat, Perrin, Faile, Egwene, Elaine, Ninave (OK didn't occur in the last book), White Tower, BlackAjaha/other evils...
[00:09:25] <Fingolfin> Padan Fain was not covered either, right?
[00:09:35] <wjp> Black Tower, too
[00:09:36] <Fingolfin> and I think I probably forgot one or the other thread =)
[00:09:44] <Fingolfin> yeah
[00:09:49] <Fingolfin> so, that#s IMHO too many
[00:09:49] <wjp> Aiel
[00:09:55] <Fingolfin> the story fizzles out
[00:10:13] <Fingolfin> just to get one time around, covering each thread in a few chapters, and the book was almost done
[00:10:14] <wjp> things should really start convering soon
[00:10:17] <Fingolfin> yeah
[00:10:23] <wjp> converging, even
[00:10:31] <Fingolfin> I don't mind having multiple plots...
[00:10:45] <Fingolfin> but having one plot/chapter, uhm well, then they should call it "A short story collection" or so =)
[00:10:50] <wjp> :-)
[00:11:47] <wjp> I wonder when the next part of the Sword of Truth series is going to be released
[00:12:19] <wjp> hm, Amazon lists a book called 'Naked Empire' by Terry Goodkind
[00:12:20] <Fingolfin> oh yeah =)
[00:12:28] <Fingolfin> there are also some threads to cover up <g>
[00:12:28] <wjp> July 1, 2003
[00:12:53] <wjp> the book description talks about Richard and Kahlan, so I guess that would be the next part

[00:49:37] <wjp> time for me to go

[05:02:32] --> ShadwChsr has joined #exult
[05:02:34] <ShadwChsr> hey
[05:02:35] <ShadwChsr> :)
[05:02:53] <Darke> Hi!
[05:03:03] <ShadwChsr> hows life?
[05:05:34] <ShadwChsr> busy? :)
[05:07:01] <Darke> Something like that. *grin*
[05:34:28] <ShadwChsr> if you get a chance I want you to see some code ;P
[05:37:29] <Darke> Code to what? *grin*
[05:38:21] <ShadwChsr> huh>
[05:39:21] <ShadwChsr> sorry dont understand what u meant ;)
[05:40:51] <Darke> "if you get a chance I want you to see some code ;P" And my response, "Code to what?"
[05:42:30] <ShadwChsr> yeah, but I dont understand
[05:42:38] <ShadwChsr> Don't you mean "of"?
[05:42:44] <ShadwChsr> My code isn't travelling anywhere ;-)
[05:43:15] <ShadwChsr> maybe i'm just tired ;p
[05:43:24] <ShadwChsr> The game I'm working on
[05:43:32] <ShadwChsr> I want to make sure its "on track"
[05:43:32] <Darke> Nah. To. Though of might be also accurate.
[05:44:01] <ShadwChsr> Must be the australian accent ;-)
[05:44:15] <ShadwChsr> or, like I said, I'm just being stupid and slow today lol
[05:44:29] <Darke> Probably just a britishism. *grin*
[05:44:48] <ShadwChsr> who knows ;-)
[05:45:17] <ShadwChsr> Anyhow.. for the most part I taught myself C++ while doing this, the code *looks* nice, but I still have my doubts ;-)
[05:45:27] <ShadwChsr> There's also a weird stuttering bug during movement that I cant figure out
[05:45:40] <ShadwChsr> like occasionally the tile->pixel coordinate conversion is 1 pixel off
[05:47:39] * Darke ahhs. Probably a rounding error somewhere. *grin*
[05:48:00] <ShadwChsr> yeah except i'm using floor(), so that doesn't make sense ;-)
[05:48:06] <ShadwChsr> thats the first thing I thought too ;)
[05:48:57] <ShadwChsr> if you have some time lemme know ;)
[05:48:58] * Darke nods.
[05:50:22] <ShadwChsr> All my life I've been learning to code on my own, I need someone to at least tell me I'm mildly sane ;-)
[05:53:09] * Darke has never been taught to code either, even when he went to uni. *grin* He's probably not the best person to ask either.
[05:54:09] <ShadwChsr> You worked on exult, right?
[05:55:30] * Darke hides, "Umm... nope! Not me! Never touched this 'exult' thing in my life! In fact, I don't even *know* what this exult thing is!" *innocentlook*
[05:58:36] * ShadwChsr stumbles around the dark aimlessly, confused
[06:01:51] * Darke puts up a glowing sign reading, "The Light at the End of the Tunnel is an Oncoming Train."
[07:39:50] <ShadwChsr> blah
[07:39:51] <ShadwChsr> ;)

[09:26:27] <slacked> there is no cause for alarm
[09:26:44] <slacked> I am only extending my welcoming

[13:20:01] <Fingolfin> hi
[13:20:33] <Fingolfin> very close loggings, telepathy? :-) (I joined 7 minutes before wjp)
[13:20:39] <wjp> :-)
[13:31:49] <Darke> Hi! Did he pick up on your exult related productivity vibes? *grin*
[13:33:39] <wjp> impressive; my exult related productivity vibes are rather tiny at the moment :-)
[13:33:53] <Darke> All things considered, since he joined #exult, maybe it was non-productivity vibes? *grin*
[13:34:09] <wjp> :-)
[13:50:40] <Fingolfin> hehe

[14:23:20] <Colourless> hi
[14:23:24] <Darke> Hi!
[14:24:39] <Colourless> that was pretty quick... i'm guessing you aren't doing much of anything at the moment
[14:25:12] * Darke resists the urge to wait for half an hour then say 'yeah'.
[14:26:07] <Colourless> ha
[14:41:11] <wjp> hi Ryan
[14:41:40] <Colourless> obviously, on the otherhand, wjp was doing something
[14:46:00] <wjp> :-)
[14:46:20] <Colourless> still *is* doing something
[15:40:41] <Fingolfin> hi ryan
[16:27:00] <Fingolfin> obviously both Colourless and Fingolfin must be might busy doing something =)
