[03:31:07] <sbx> i can't connect to the exult website

[08:00:21] <Baastuul> I want to register a .mn domain name.
[08:00:49] <Baastuul> A friend suggested I make a www.da.mn
[08:00:53] <Baastuul> Because my initials are DA :p
[08:02:24] <Colourless> do it do it do it
[08:02:30] <Baastuul> Bah! Someone registered it already!
[08:02:32] <Baastuul> This is an outrage!

[08:02:42] <Baastuul> Blech!
[08:02:44] <Colourless> ha ha... to bad
[08:03:12] <wjp> you could have expected that, though :-)
[08:03:27] <Baastuul> Yup.
[08:03:36] <Baastuul> However, nothing is going to stop me from doing what I shall do next.
[08:03:43] * Baastuul cocks his shotgun and heads out the door.
[08:04:01] * Baastuul has murder in his eyes.
[08:04:22] <Baastuul> Man, and he wasted the domain, too.
[08:04:29] <Baastuul> I went to www.da.mn and this is all there is:
[08:04:30] <Baastuul> The Mighty Robbo's website here.
[08:04:30] <Baastuul> (I hope you're not looking for much, because this is pretty much all there is...)
[08:04:54] <Colourless> what a waste
[08:05:38] <Baastuul> I wonder if there are any Bhutan domain names!
[08:05:54] <Baastuul> Hah!

[18:52:30] <Handshakes> oh hi
[18:52:32] <Handshakes> sorry
[18:52:36] <Handshakes> watching sci-fi channel
[18:53:54] <ZutGu> gosh
[18:54:00] <ZutGu> I wish I had sci-fi channel÷
[18:54:05] <ZutGu> -÷
[18:54:09] <Handshakes> it mostly stinks
[18:54:23] <ZutGu> well you can watch stargate from there :P
[18:54:28] <Handshakes> i just switch to spike :P star trek is on
[18:54:33] <Handshakes> proved my point
[18:54:36] <ZutGu> mmkay
[18:54:53] <Baastuul> I only have seven channels. :(
[18:55:08] <Handshakes> maybe they are seven really good channels
[18:55:23] <ZutGu> I only have 11
[18:55:37] <Handshakes> cable is expensive
[18:55:46] <Handshakes> but its a must
[18:56:01] <ZutGu> yeah, I have cable and can see 11 with that
[18:56:07] <ZutGu> without, only 3-5
[18:56:14] <Handshakes> :o
[18:56:40] <Baastuul> Handshakes, they're just the national stations... like ABC, NBC, PBS, and the like.
[18:56:50] <Baastuul> We get this one "family" channel called PAX. It's kind of dumb, though.
[18:56:54] <ZutGu> i'm european you see :P
[18:56:59] <Handshakes> oh
[18:57:11] <Baastuul> Finnish!
[18:57:12] <Handshakes> how much do you pay for 11 sation cable?
[18:57:17] <Handshakes> station*
[18:59:20] <Handshakes> i mean, im not sure they even offer that round these parts
[19:00:03] <ZutGu> I dont know but not much
[19:00:30] <Handshakes> you get cable itnernet service with it?
[19:00:45] <ZutGu> no...I have to pay different payment for that
[19:01:00] <ZutGu> and it's really expensive here where I live
[19:01:03] <Handshakes> taht's where they get ya
[19:01:07] <Handshakes> its expensive everywhere

[20:22:22] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to artaxerxes
[20:22:25] <artaxerxes> hi all
[20:22:38] <ZutGu> hi you
[20:22:44] <artaxerxes> wjp: remember a while ago I asked if you knew of an installer for Windows?
[20:22:55] <artaxerxes> I think I got it: http://nsis.sourceforge.net/
[20:23:00] <artaxerxes> Hi ZutGu
[20:23:20] <artaxerxes> seems quite powerful
[20:25:06] <ZutGu> what's that?
[20:25:20] <wjp> my guess would be an installer for windows ;-)
[20:25:26] <ZutGu> hmm
[20:25:28] <ZutGu> heh
[20:25:51] <artaxerxes> that would be absolutely perfect to install the patch for Si-french!
[20:26:09] <artaxerxes> it can even d/l updates from the web and install them!
[20:26:19] <ZutGu> you use that to make own installer to own project?
[20:26:57] <artaxerxes> well... I _will_ use that (if it really fits my needs)
[20:27:53] <ZutGu> mmkay
[20:28:02] <ZutGu> you use that for what? :P
[20:28:54] <artaxerxes> an installer is fully indicated for my patch: need to lookup the registry to find where exult is installed (isn't there a key installed by Exult to know that?), running of a prog against the exult.cfg to locate where SI is installed and whether the patch dir exists and is populated, and running "patcher" to patch the files to have a french version of SI.
[20:29:22] <artaxerxes> The auto-update is gravy
[20:29:48] <ZutGu> mmkay
[20:29:52] <artaxerxes> forget that. Gravy is a _required_ ingredient.... It's rather.... a digestif!
[20:30:44] <artaxerxes> Doh! Same pb.... err... It's rather.... err... the siesta after the meal!
[20:31:31] <ZutGu> calm down :P
[20:36:24] <artaxerxes> wjp: could you confirm Exult adds info to the registry?
[20:36:35] <wjp> exult itself doesn't
[20:36:43] <wjp> I'm fairly sure the installer does, though
[20:36:51] <wjp> (for upgrading)
[20:37:49] <artaxerxes> and this would tell me where the exult.cfg is located?
[20:37:57] <artaxerxes> should I ask Kirben about all that?
[20:38:01] <wjp> Colourless
[20:38:21] <wjp> it's probably in the logs or on the forum somewhere too
