[00:14:32] <Baastuul> Harro, harro.
[00:14:46] <Baastuul> Like a cocaine-starved drug addict, I long for an update on the Exult main page! :(
[00:15:22] <sbx> I'm waiting for more posts on the forum.
[00:18:44] <sbx> well I think I'll respond to the dungeon one

[18:54:19] <Baastuul> Hail!
[18:55:32] <sbx> hi again
[18:56:52] <Baastuul> Does the latest version of Exult kind of running... stop-and-go-ish for you, sbx?
[18:57:05] <Baastuul> I just started playing again and it was just a tad bit choppy.
[18:58:08] <sbx> I don't have the latest version... I'll try it later.
[18:58:26] <Baastuul> ok
[18:58:46] <sbx> i dont think there's anything much new
[18:58:46] <Baastuul> By the way, have you seen this?
[18:58:48] <Baastuul> http://siteeric1705.free.fr/video/sandAnimation.wmv
[18:59:09] <sbx> nope
[18:59:16] <sbx> im scared to
[18:59:20] <Baastuul> Check it out, it's pretty cool
[19:01:55] <sbx> alright I will later I'm going now
[19:01:56] <sbx> cya
[19:01:58] --- sbx is now known as sbx|afk

[22:11:38] --> Baastuul has joined #exult
[22:40:34] <sbx> Baastuul: I don't know how you have time to download all this stuff on dial-up. :)
[22:41:23] <Baastuul> GetRight + patience + games. :)
[22:41:28] <Baastuul> Oh, and Wikipedia. ;)
[22:41:30] <sbx> games yes!
[22:41:37] * Baastuul plunks down and reads Wikipedia for hours on end sometimes.
[22:41:41] <Baastuul> In fact, I'm doing that right now. :(
[22:41:43] <sbx> hmm
[22:41:48] <sbx> isn't half of that inaccurate BS?
[22:41:57] <sbx> liek some guy just writing what he thinks up at the time
[22:42:23] <Baastuul> Some of it is inaccurate, but it is for the most part true. I tend to do "further reading" for types of stuff that are interesting.
[22:42:24] <sbx> that sand guy draws in sand so fast its almost like he doesnt have to think about it
[22:42:30] <sbx> i see
[22:42:39] <Baastuul> My guess is that sand artist has no wife.
[22:42:49] <sbx> lol
[22:43:08] <Baastuul> He probably goes home and makes shapes in his kitty litter box.
[22:43:13] <sbx> true sand artistry does require a lot of devotion
[22:44:17] <sbx> i just realized thats probably the oldest form of art :)
[22:44:36] <sbx> but i like videos of robots better
[22:44:55] <Baastuul> Did you see the music video of the Norwegian band doing the cover for the "Total Eclipse of the Heart" song?
[22:45:05] <sbx> yes
[22:45:09] <sbx> you made me see it
[22:45:20] <sbx> i can't ever forgive you for this
[22:45:23] <Baastuul> :D
[22:45:25] <Baastuul> haha
[22:45:42] <sbx> it would be awesome if they pulled their pants up though
[22:45:55] <Baastuul> Yeah, those crazy Nords.
[22:45:56] <sbx> that guys ass is too bright
[22:46:12] <Baastuul> He probably puts makeup on it before going out on stage, is my guess.
[22:46:34] <sbx> do they have to get new appliances for each performance?
[22:46:47] <Baastuul> I don't know. I'd imagine those appliances can last them through a few performances.
[22:47:09] <sbx> oh ok
[22:47:14] <sbx> I used to like that song.
[22:47:16] * sbx shrugs.
[22:47:50] <Baastuul> I want to listen to some music by A Silver Mt. Zion, I hear they are good.
[22:48:46] <-- shazza` has left IRC (Read error: 145 (Connection timed out))
[22:48:58] <sbx> I wanted to hear the Norwegian band play "Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House.
[22:49:18] <Baastuul> Haha
[22:49:21] <sbx> Or how about "The Safety Dance".
[22:49:49] <Baastuul> I find it ironic how one of Crowded House's most famous songs was "Don't Dream It's Over," but then recently their drummer Paul Hester hung himself in a park.
[22:50:05] <sbx> I don't get it.
[22:50:37] <Baastuul> You know, they're all singing about how you shouldn't dream that it's all over, but then all of a sudden one of the group's members kills himself.
[22:50:50] <sbx> hmm
[22:51:20] <sbx> Did the dream die?
[22:51:41] <Baastuul> My guess is yes, seeing as Crowded House disbanded in 1996.
[22:52:23] <Baastuul> I want to listen to that song again.
[22:52:27] <sbx> hmm
[22:52:43] <Baastuul> I have an MP3 CD somewhere that has it on it, brb whilst I look for it.
[22:52:48] <sbx> :)
[22:53:06] <sbx> light a candle for paul hester man!
[22:53:35] <sbx> and hope that hurratorpedo(?) does a rendition of the song to pay their respencts
[22:55:06] <Baastuul> Weee! I found the CD.
[22:55:55] <sbx> BitTorrent and GetRight are competing for my trickle-down bandwidth at the moment.
[22:56:26] <Baastuul> What is your maximum download and upload speeds?
[22:56:55] <sbx> 4.2K/s right now
[22:57:18] <Baastuul> 4.2 K/s? That's MY maximum download speed... and I am on dial-up!
[22:57:21] <Baastuul> Aren't you on cable or something?
[22:57:25] <sbx> no
[22:57:31] <Baastuul> Or wait...
[22:57:33] <Baastuul> You're on dial-up, sorry.
[22:57:43] <sbx> np

[23:25:46] <sbx> Baastuul
[23:27:12] <Baastuul> Harro.
[23:28:01] <sbx> Have you played U6?
[23:33:50] <Baastuul> Yeah. I haven't beat it, though.
[23:36:08] <sbx> Try U6O yet?
[23:36:18] <Baastuul> Nope.
[23:36:21] <Baastuul> I thought it was a failed project?
[23:36:31] <Baastuul> Oh, no, wait, I remember you telling me about it.
[23:36:38] <Baastuul> I went to the site and didn't really feel like getting into it. :(
[23:37:29] <sbx> nope
[23:37:47] <sbx> the site isn't very complete
[23:37:56] <sbx> but for some reason they like it
[23:38:08] <sbx> yeah the webpage should get people interested not turn them away!
[23:38:26] <sbx> http://www.geocities.com/galleondragon
[23:39:30] <Colourless> damn that's ugly
[23:39:42] <Baastuul> And it's got "geocities" in the URL!
[23:40:08] <Colourless> yeah well... shouldn't have had my hopes up... wait i didn't :-)
[23:40:16] <sbx> hehe I was gonna say "yes the url is ugly, and the page isn't so good either!"
[23:41:03] <Baastuul> I guess that it's got some points for not having those stupid, ugly Geocities "street addresses."
[23:41:11] <Baastuul> But then again, those kind of faded out quite a long while ago.
[23:41:14] <Baastuul> Same with the Fortunecity ones.
[23:42:05] <Colourless> they weren't streets, they were suburbs or something stupid
[23:42:23] <sbx> I don't rememebr the FortuneCity one.
[23:42:39] <Baastuul> The FortuneCity one was very much similar to GeoCities, only maybe a little longer.
[23:43:38] <sbx> Anyway, the game is slightly better than the site. If you don't count lag.
[23:43:44] <sbx> I play a few times a wekk.
[23:43:46] <sbx> week*
[23:44:02] <sbx> but not as good yet as other ultima based games
[23:44:25] <sbx> but I havn't played EUO
[23:44:26] <Baastuul> Oh, sbx, you live in Oklahoma, right?
[23:44:31] <sbx> yes
[23:44:39] <sbx> You live in Washington!
[23:44:40] <Baastuul> The other day, some dude called me from Oklahoma.
[23:44:53] <sbx> wasnt me
[23:44:54] <Baastuul> He asked for some lady, and I was like, "Sorry, you've got the wrong phone number."
[23:44:59] <Baastuul> Two minutes later, he calls again.
[23:45:06] <Baastuul> I know, I just feel like telling you about this.
[23:45:12] <sbx> how'd you know where he was
[23:45:52] <Baastuul> So he calls me again, explains who he is calling for, says he's got the right phone number, and that he needs to talk with this lady who he is convinced has my phone number.
[23:46:01] <Baastuul> I had caller ID, so I Googled his phone number. :)
[23:46:15] <Baastuul> I forget what the area code was, I think it was 918?
[23:46:34] <sbx> that's my area code
[23:46:37] <Baastuul> :O
[23:46:39] <Baastuul> Creepy.
[23:46:41] <sbx> you can Google phone numbers?
[23:46:43] <Baastuul> Yes
[23:46:44] <Colourless> it was you sbx wasn't it :-)
[23:46:50] <Baastuul> The guy said his name was Chris.
[23:47:13] <sbx> I don't even know anybody named chris
[23:47:15] <Colourless> and what did google say?
[23:47:26] <sbx> If Google said SB-X, it lies.
[23:47:28] <Baastuul> Well, Google didn't give me any specifics, only that the 918 area code is in the Tulsa area, I think.
[23:48:23] <Baastuul> Well, to wrap the story up, he calls back 10 or 15 minutes later, and he's like... "Okay, I've had enough, if <whatever the lady's name was> is there, tell her that Chris needs to talk to her, it's an EMERGENCY."
[23:48:33] <Baastuul> I felt bad for the guy, but it's not like I could help him with whatever his problem was.
[23:49:35] <sbx> I would have tried to sound like a woman and said it was her.
[23:50:17] <sbx> she probably gave him a fake number
[23:50:27] <Baastuul> Well, apparently the lady he was trying to call was a great aunt of his that he was trying to get in contact with after not speaking with her for a long time.
[23:50:38] <Baastuul> He said that he called everybody he knew that knew the lady, and they gave him the same number.
[23:50:41] <Colourless> probably got the wrong number
[23:50:55] <Colourless> hmm
[23:50:59] <Colourless> thats strange
[23:51:03] <Baastuul> The lady was probably senile and gave the wrong number to everybody.
[23:51:44] <sbx> I agree.
[23:53:10] <sbx> What will they think of next? http://www.google.com/googlegulp/
[23:56:44] <Baastuul> Are they serious?
[23:57:51] <sbx> Well, that was posted on their website yesterday.
[23:58:05] <Baastuul> But on July 11th, 2003, while gathering epiphyte samples in the upper canopy of a kapok tree in the forbidding Cordillera Apolobamba range on the Bolivian/Peruvian border, Hoelzle snagged a leaf from what turned out to be a previously unknown species of strangler fig.
[23:58:53] <sbx> haha
[23:58:55] <sbx> I didn't read all of it.
[23:59:01] <sbx> "For Google, this cornucopia of undigitized data represented an irresistible acquisition target."
