[12:02:25] <servus> Hi WishStone.
[12:04:40] <wjp> hi
[12:05:00] <WishStone> Hello boys :]
[12:05:37] * servus giggles
[12:06:01] <WishStone> Not a boy?
[12:06:21] <servus> I'm a very small boy, you should be nice to me.
[12:08:18] * WishStone takes another cup and shares some nice hot tea with servus
[12:08:21] * WishStone is nice
[12:09:04] <servus> Aiee! It burns! It burns! Vultures shall pick thy bones! Curse thine offspring!
[12:09:23] <servus> Oh, umm, thankee! *smile*
[12:09:38] * WishStone looks puzzles at wjp
[12:10:03] <servus> I'm strange and it being 4:10AM makes me stranger. Please accept my apologies :-)
[12:10:11] * wjp wonders what he did :-)
[12:10:22] <WishStone> You fed him caffine, didn't you, wjp?
[12:10:58] <wjp> actually I didn't even feed myself caffeine yet today
[12:11:07] <servus> I had some silver snake venom
[12:12:14] * servus collapses into a shapeless heap of clothes, skin and bone in the corner of the room, green venom oozing through the seams of the burlap clothing
[12:17:04] <WishStone> uhm....
[12:17:07] <WishStone> ewwwwww
[12:19:31] <servus> Tell me about it! Lousy gargoyles
[12:30:04] * WishStone companion's
[12:35:40] --> Ranger has joined #Exult
[12:35:51] <-- WishStone has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[12:35:55] --- Ranger is now known as WishStone
[12:35:59] <WishStone> I'll be massively depressed when EA closes down the program.
[12:36:16] <wjp> program?
[12:36:33] <WishStone> Well, UO killed off the Volunteers 2 years ago ...
[12:36:39] <WishStone> But Companions where never removed...
[12:36:51] <WishStone> But the day will surely come. And I'll hit a HUGE depression...
[12:38:53] <servus> You're a companion?
[12:38:58] <WishStone> Aye
[12:39:00] <servus> Shard?
[12:39:01] <WishStone> former SC
[12:39:06] <WishStone> Drachenfels, SC Oceania
[12:39:13] <servus> Pleh, nothing I'm on.
[12:39:21] <WishStone> Sorry ;]
[12:39:25] * wjp wonders what a companion is :-)
[12:39:32] <WishStone> New Player Helper in UO
[12:39:33] <servus> Big guy with a robe.
[12:39:41] <servus> Oh, not a companion, but a senior companion
[12:39:50] <servus> Companions are so boooring ;-)
[12:39:57] <WishStone> But kind :]
[12:40:21] <servus> I had a companion spawn several titans on me =-/
[12:40:58] <WishStone> ???!
[12:41:03] <WishStone> Companions can NOT spawn.
[12:41:06] <WishStone> Not even ACs
[12:41:10] <servus> s/spawn/teleport me into a nest of :)
[12:41:31] <WishStone> ...make up your mind, spawn and teleport is a huge difference :P
[12:41:35] <servus> I showed them though! Played my lute and they all fell asleep
[12:41:41] <servus> Ohhh close enough. I was trying to be dramatic :)
[12:41:50] <WishStone> *frowns*
[12:42:02] <WishStone> Things like these spread nasty rumors, my fine sleepy friend.
[12:42:07] * servus apologizes for incorrect usage of English! Eep!
[12:42:08] <WishStone> wjp: http://www.clan-blackstar.de/new_gallery/gallery.php?therobefiles_030725.scranger.jpg
[12:42:28] <servus> Uh uh! That guy hated me.
[12:42:39] <servus> Actually... hmm.. I think it may have been an arch counselor? Purple robe...
[12:42:40] * servus thinks
[12:42:52] <WishStone> Purple robe was Senior Counselor.
[12:42:58] <servus> OK then, that's what it was.
[12:43:06] <servus> They're all random robies
[12:43:10] <WishStone> And if a Senior Counselor would abuse his or her powers in such a gross way, they would be OUT in a heartbeat.
[12:43:17] <WishStone> Not random.
[12:43:19] <servus> Yes I've gone through your site :)
[12:43:19] <WishStone> The robe is the rank.
[12:43:29] <servus> Well, it happened
[12:43:37] <WishStone> Did you report it?
[12:43:40] <servus> Not like it matters, since EA was axing everyone anyway.
[12:43:45] <servus> Nah, I'm not a reporting sort of person
[12:43:54] <servus> I didn't die, anyways. I'm buff *flexes*
[12:44:06] <WishStone> You should have. Volunteers that abuse their powers need to be booted, simple as that.
[12:44:25] * WishStone is strict in these things
[12:44:32] <WishStone> I removed 2 companion on OC for abuse...
[12:44:35] <servus> I've been slain by many GM's.
[12:44:41] <servus> Seers too
[12:44:45] <WishStone> Bastards lured newbies into dungeons for chists sake
[12:44:49] <servus> Heh
[12:44:56] <servus> Atlantic and Napa had you guys beat.
[12:45:18] <servus> GM's and seers delighted in going on rampages, and it happened often enough.
[12:45:22] <WishStone> *smiles* my Hubby, former AC, played ATL. He was in the AMT
[12:45:52] <servus> Well then maybe he remembers some of the more formidable Atlantic "rare-spawns".
[12:45:55] <WishStone> GMs I understand.... the stuff they have to listen to at times, I'd want to morph into a Balron and swap brit bank with deamons myself ;D
[12:46:26] <servus> Oh it was worse than a balron
[12:46:37] * WishStone killed the queue and wonders what to do now
[12:46:43] <WishStone> What, pack of mongbats? :P
[12:46:56] <servus> The most memorable is the "Slasher of Veils", ala Ultima Underworld 1... Spawned a dozen EVs, revealed hidden folks, and ate their kidneys.
[12:47:12] <servus> Killed many many dozen people.
[12:47:22] <servus> I did kill a big black seer mongbat, though...
[12:47:40] <servus> Jerky mongbat had no loot! *Cries*
[12:47:45] <WishStone> *smirks*
[12:48:02] * WishStone nibbles some rusk
[12:48:16] <servus> Rusk?
[12:48:47] <WishStone> *nods*?
[12:48:52] <WishStone> Why?
[12:49:40] <servus> I had to look it up
[12:50:02] <WishStone> \:]
[12:50:07] <WishStone> Breakfast!
[12:50:10] <WishStone> Rusk and tea
[12:50:21] <servus> I'm going to have to look up some of your smileys too
[12:50:23] * servus smiles
[12:50:30] * servus smiles in a reallll simple way.
[12:50:40] <WishStone> booooring
[12:50:55] * servus sprouts fangs and gnaws your kidney
[12:51:02] <WishStone> oi
[12:51:06] * WishStone paddles servus for being naughty! 1 I can be naughty, too!!
[12:51:08] * WishStone grabs the duct tape and quickly wraps up servus in it till servus can no longer move..!
[12:51:10] * WishStone looks sternly at servus and starts scolding
[12:51:29] <servus> Well that wasn't nice! I hope you miss your kidney *whimper*
[12:51:53] <servus> Then again... all this paddling... and tying up... should this be on a public channel?
[12:52:11] * WishStone stuffs a bag of 11,12Ice down servus 's pants
[12:52:24] <servus> Definitely private-channel stuff
[12:53:30] <servus> The ice is starting to melt. I thought you were bringing drinks too
[12:54:45] <WishStone> eer... wt...ß
[12:55:05] <WishStone> I just killed a skeleton that was one story below me in my house??
[12:55:15] <servus> Meteor? Earthquake?
[12:55:19] <servus> I hope you realize that all kill is not a skill!
[12:55:22] <static> which linux distribution do you gentlemen prefer out of curiosity?
[12:55:23] <WishStone> sword
[12:55:30] <servus> I'm on Slackware9.
[12:55:38] * wjp uses Gentoo
[12:56:40] <static> cool. was thinking of installing one on another machine.. i've stuck with freebsd over the past couple of years
[12:58:22] <servus> You should install AnCorp.
[12:58:34] <wjp> negate death?
[12:58:45] <servus> Seems like a good choice.
[12:59:08] <servus> Better than KalVasFlam^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HRedhat
[12:59:26] <static> haha
[12:59:31] * wjp points servus at ^W :-)
[12:59:50] <servus> I know, I actually typed that first but did the ^H for emphasis
[13:00:19] <servus> I know the entire Sosarian lexicon... that's pathetic!
[13:03:11] <WishStone> hmhmhmmmm
[13:03:25] <servus> It's like Pig Latin for verbose Ultima nerds... hurortwis anrelex ylemortuus?

[13:04:12] <WishStone> eer.. inmani flaminnoxex?

[13:04:38] --- An_Old_Ranger is now known as WishStone
[13:04:49] <servus> WishStone: Is suddenly androgenous!
[13:05:10] <WishStone> The Ranger is male. I insisit on the fact.
[13:05:16] <servus> ortkal
[13:05:32] <WishStone> For 3 years the people I played UO with though me to be an old bloke, 30ish-40ish years old.

[13:06:41] <servus> Poor WishStone
[13:07:06] <servus> Ehhh. that makes me feel nox :)
[13:07:34] <WishStone> Well, at least people stopped sending me offers to enlarge my penis...
[13:07:43] <WishStone> Because I am VERY happy with it's size :P
[13:08:04] * wjp has been getting some really really really evil spam recently. The kind that claims that my credit card has been billed for cds filled with child porn, and to cancel the order I should email them my credit card details. *sigh*
[13:08:10] <servus> ylemortuusrel porexnoxinsanct? Ewwww
[13:08:26] <WishStone> Lordy!
[13:08:30] <servus> Most of my porn has to do with farm animals and girls

[13:08:49] <servus> errr, s/porn/pornspam... gosh that sounds bad
[13:08:54] <WishStone> lucky you
[13:09:24] * WishStone opens a new package f rusk and munches

[13:11:13] <WishStone> greater food earth?
[13:11:25] <WishStone> no, not greater
[13:11:28] <WishStone> that'S Vas
[13:11:30] <wjp> in mani ylem = create food
[13:11:31] <servus> How very quas-an-corp of you to kal-xen yourself with such strong in-mani-ylem! You'll be a real in-vas-mani and you'll cause your enemies some real vas-jux!
[13:12:11] * WishStone grins and rolls her eyes
[13:12:26] <servus> I guess I should've just done mani-ylem, and omitted the 'create', but I'm trying to use only actual spells that have existed in the game, not random conjugations :)
[13:12:55] <WishStone> When I took my Mage test in the DMT 4 years ago, I used to be able to know them all...
[13:12:56] <servus> "What was your first programming language?" "creating spells in Ultima Underworld!"
[13:13:05] <WishStone> One of the few I remember is moving death now :P
[13:13:29] <servus> Vas Ort Grav? Vas Corp? Previously known as Vas Hur Corp?

[13:14:45] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[13:14:49] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[13:14:56] <wjp> hi
[13:15:00] <servus> Didn't your companion-partners ever ask you this stuff? :-)
[13:15:03] <servus> Hi Dominus, we are being pointless.
[13:15:15] <Dominus> hey ho
[13:15:20] --- servus is now known as bliy_ductosnore

[13:17:06] <wjp> bingo :-)
[13:17:12] <bliy_ductosnore> (Maybe you like to eat dirth... what with the rusk and all...:)
[13:17:19] * WishStone grabs the duct tape and quickly wraps up bliy_ductosnore in it till bliy_ductosnore can no longer move..!
[13:17:47] <wjp> don't tell me you have a special command for that one? :-)
[13:17:54] <WishStone> One of these days I want to be able to cast AN Lor.... seriously, what's with people that, as soon as night falls run around casting IN LOR on everyone??
[13:17:57] * bliy_ductosnore rematerializes at the other side of the room and calls the vorgs on you
[13:17:58] <WishStone> I FREAKIN' LIKE NIGHT!!!
[13:18:10] <Dominus> wjp: when I have to go over the exult studio docs and also add pictures to the Doc/FAQ, should I have them in png (convert ES ones to png)?
[13:18:24] <bliy_ductosnore> in quas lor izz what yous wants
[13:18:37] * bliy_ductosnore watches the vorgs chew on WishStone's legs
[13:18:49] <wjp> Dominus: I'd prefer png, yes
[13:18:58] <Dominus> thought so :-)
[13:19:01] * WishStone shoos with slight annoyance at the vorgs
[13:19:05] <WishStone> go play elsewhere, puppy
[13:19:09] * bliy_ductosnore skups WishStone
[13:19:24] <WishStone> Why I NEVER!
[13:19:25] <wjp> it's been a while since I played UW2
[13:19:26] <bliy_ductosnore> You izz been skupped. Regenerazzion is complete.
[13:19:27] * WishStone slaps bliy_ductosnore
[13:19:37] * wjp wonders if current dosbox plays uw2 at a decent speed
[13:19:53] * bliy_ductosnore reforms WishStone into a cute vorg with a human-style bowtie on top
[13:19:59] <wjp> (dosbox 0.61 was released today, incidentally)
[13:20:04] <Dominus> I also noted "Donations" as an addition to the FAQ and found that I don't have a huge thank you for the SF-folks
[13:20:09] <bliy_ductosnore> It does, wjp, on my 1.7GHz
[13:20:21] <Dominus> it does on my 2,66 :-)
[13:20:28] <bliy_ductosnore> wjp: Heh, I've been using .61 for quite some time... Crusader is wayy too slow on it
[13:20:41] <wjp> no, you haven't :-)
[13:20:52] <wjp> you were just using a version that was labelled 0.61 :-)
[13:21:07] <bliy_ductosnore> Ehh, I got the CVS snapshot 4 days ago
[13:21:32] <bliy_ductosnore> You izz to be skupped! Shall we skupzz it now? Yezz, izz good.
[13:21:33] <wjp> there've been several bugfixes since then
[13:22:23] * WishStone still has no new newbies to train on and thus goes play stronghold
[13:22:32] <bliy_ductosnore> You can train me
[13:22:35] --- bliy_ductosnore is now known as servus
[13:22:51] <WishStone> You're not a young and besides, what could I teach you about UO? :P
[13:22:54] <servus> I've only gotten ~30 GM's. I know nothing of the game :-)
[13:23:35] <wjp> wow, UW2's graphics are so much worse than I remembered :-)
[13:24:02] <servus> Oh you big wimp
[13:29:30] <servus> WishStone: Are you willing to skup yourself for the greater good of Talorid or not?

[17:46:07] <Colourless> we'll you'll have to ask him :-)
[17:46:35] * WishStone prods wjp with a sharp, pointy stick... 1 If you start to smell like roadkill, you'll get thrown out ;]
[17:46:38] <wjp> that depends on how you define "here" :-)
[17:46:39] <Colourless> darke, also known as ember at the moment, is always here :-)

[19:29:50] <Dominus> and I bought one from overseas and not cheap....
[19:30:07] <Dominus> I guess so. I don't think it was localized
[19:31:20] <Dominus> I couldn't find one at first glance, but Joseph Morriss "complained" on usenet about that some days ago
[19:31:59] * wjp doesn't see any at first glance either
[19:32:15] <Dominus> a lot of cheap u8
[19:32:34] <wjp> already have that one ;-)
[19:32:40] <wjp> (thrice)
[19:32:54] <wjp> *counts*.. no, four times
[19:33:20] <Dominus> yeah, I got it thrice
[19:34:35] <WishStone> Seriously...
[19:34:36] <WishStone> http://www.astroxys.de/schirm.jpg
[19:34:46] <WishStone> What else can I do to tell someone what to put where on mIRC? :P
[19:34:58] <WishStone> Oh, I know! Make big red circles!
[19:35:22] <wjp> hehe :-)
[19:35:54] <Dominus> he
[19:36:02] <Dominus> you got a busy system tray :-)
[19:36:06] <WishStone> seriousdly, some people need a paper with "breathe in, breate out" written on it :P
[19:36:16] <wjp> how about a big red arrow from the "edit" button to that "edit server" dialog
[19:36:29] <wjp> ;-)
[19:36:42] <WishStone> Nice one, wjp! :D
[19:36:49] <WishStone> Dom: THAT isn't busy...
[19:37:00] <WishStone> Busy is NOW that hubby is home and MSN is open as well ;D
[19:37:05] * WishStone watches him via webcam
[19:37:24] <WishStone> It's funny, a simple thing as this and it helped me with my depression :]
[19:37:33] * wjp hardly recognizes anything in that system tray
[19:37:56] <WishStone> You don't?
[19:37:59] <wjp> ? volume ? ? ? ? real ? ? icq ? ? time
[19:38:11] <wjp> last one might be windows commander
[19:38:41] <Dominus> quicktime,sound,?,?,?,MS-Messenger,Real,?ZoneAlarm,IRC,IRC, Total Commander (former Windows Commander)
[19:38:45] <wjp> and the one before that would be an audio player judging by the "REM - Losing..." bit :-)
[19:38:58] <Dominus> IRC=ICQ :-)
[19:39:43] <Dominus> my gf's sister had lost her password for icq, now guess how long it took me to find it out :-)
[19:40:09] <WishStone> quicktime,sound,Sophos virus check,c-Media Audio Config,EXPERT (Screen tool),MS-Messenger,Real,my dail-up,ZoneAlarm,ICQ,Sonique (MP3 from Lycos), Total Commander (former Windows Commander)
[19:40:12] <wjp> let's see... less than 15 minutes?
[19:40:23] <Dominus> but that was after I spent saturday afternoon cleaning out her system of a thousand virus' and trojans...
[19:41:18] <WishStone> Some of them I WISH I could get rid of... but they burried themselves in so damn deep I as a newb can't chatch them :\
[19:41:23] <WishStone> Quicktime and Real for example.
[19:41:29] <wjp> what's "Martian Dreams" translated to german?
[19:41:53] <wjp> (especially "Martian" :-) )
[19:41:57] <Dominus> Träume vom Mars I would say
[19:42:08] <wjp> ah, easy way out ;-)
[19:42:15] <Dominus> as there is no direct translation for martian
[19:42:17] <WishStone> or Marsianische Träume
[19:42:28] <WishStone> ;D
[19:42:31] <Dominus> Marsianisch is not really used
[19:42:40] <WishStone> Was man nicht hat, macht man eben ;]
[19:42:53] <Dominus> bäh!
[19:42:59] <Dominus> :P
[19:43:00] <WishStone> And if you can have comertials say "Unkapputbar", a game can be Marsianisch ;D
[19:43:16] <Dominus> :-)
[19:43:29] <wjp> 'Träume' by itself gives some "interesting" hits on ebay.de :-)
[19:43:37] <WishStone> eer
[19:43:42] <WishStone> *GRIN*
[19:46:13] <Dominus> yes and veeeeeeeeeeery cheap also
[19:46:37] <Dominus> of course jsut now I had to explain that search page to my gf that came into my room :-)
[19:46:45] <WishStone> *LOL*
[19:47:08] <wjp> hehe :-)
[19:47:42] <WishStone> *sees a very serious expression on Fang's face* uhoh... he's reading his guilds' board :P
[19:48:20] <Dominus> Forum is slow today
[19:48:53] <wjp> s/today/this week/
[19:48:55] <Dominus> wjp: does cvs work for you? developers cvs
[19:49:11] <WishStone> http://pub11.ezboard.com/bblackstar Here, Dom, I lend you mine :P
[19:49:30] <wjp> ah, artaxerxes announced his web translation tool
[19:49:48] <Dominus> uh, poisonous forum...
[19:50:03] <wjp> Dominus: yes, cvs works but slowly
[19:50:14] <wjp> dark green on black? :-)
[19:50:18] <WishStone> Green/ Black are the guild colours, sorry, wasn't my idea ;D
[19:50:30] <Dominus> it is very easy to read
[19:50:32] <Dominus> NOT
[19:50:46] <WishStone> Bah
[19:50:47] <wjp> hm, I seem to remember commenting on the colour scheme before :-)
[19:50:47] <WishStone> Wuss
[19:50:55] <wjp> nothing like Ctrl-A :-)
[19:51:17] <Dominus> cvs: cvs update: warning: unrecognized response `read: No error' from cvs server
[19:51:20] <WishStone> http://www.clan-blackstar.de/new_gallery/gallery.php?meetingsandceremonies_030601.dnonkees.jpg See? See?
[19:52:39] <Dominus> the most fun I had with Ultima Online was actually the history of IMANEWBIE
[19:52:58] <WishStone> I prefer playing myself...
[19:53:23] * wjp played the beta a long long time ago, and a month shortly after the second age was released
[19:53:44] <wjp> after that month I stopped because I was spending too much time on it :-)
[19:53:57] <WishStone> Besides, I like REAL situative humor: http://www.clan-blackstar.de/new_gallery/gallery.php?hanginout_030601.nevermind.jpg
[19:54:27] <Dominus> It took me three months to get to that insight
[19:54:38] <WishStone> *chuckles*
[19:56:16] <Dominus> I had just moved to Vienna and for the first time experienced a fast connection to the internet. One week after getting cable I bought UO-SA :-)
[19:57:49] <WishStone> :D
[19:58:23] --> GAHHHH has joined #Exult
[19:58:39] <-- WishStone has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[19:58:41] --- GAHHHH is now known as WishStone
[19:58:45] <WishStone> *GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR*
[20:08:38] <-- Cahaan has left IRC (Connection timed out)
[20:19:17] --> Florent has joined #exult
[20:24:33] <WishStone> *greets*
[20:30:43] <Dominus> updating those studio pics is actually getting into real work :-)
[20:31:21] * WishStone is educating herself currently
[20:31:35] <Dominus> in what?
[20:31:59] <WishStone> http://www.splenda.com/
[20:32:07] <WishStone> This stuff is near genious!
[20:32:51] <Dominus> :-)
[20:32:59] * WishStone is amazed
[20:33:14] <WishStone> I study home economics you know... this could easily be worked into an essay ;D
[21:35:00] <Dominus> now lets see if cvs behaves now
[21:43:23] <Dominus> ok, that went well
[21:43:32] <Dominus> now on to the the web cvs
[21:53:17] <-- WishStone has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[21:54:28] <Dominus> ok, that didn't work quite that well, but t worked
[21:54:41] <Dominus> now on to updating the webspace
[21:58:11] <Dominus> I wonder why images/screenshots/exult_studio1.jpg is not yet a png
[21:58:48] <Dominus> and why there is images/screenshots/exstudio1.jpg as well
[21:59:04] <Dominus> wjp: any idea? are you still there?
[21:59:10] <wjp> hm?
[22:00:09] <Dominus> just looking at the last jpgs on our site
[22:00:33] <wjp> it is actually referenced in content/screenshots.dat
[22:00:57] <wjp> exult_studio1.jpg, that is
[22:01:17] <Dominus> exstudio1.jpg is a mystery to me
[22:01:35] <wjp> leftover I guess
[22:01:40] <wjp> not referenced anywhere
[22:01:56] <Dominus> and I wonder why Fingolfin didn't convert exult_studio1.jpg when he did the others
[22:02:34] <wjp> those two .jpg's are actually identical
[22:02:42] <Dominus> I noticed
[22:03:05] <Dominus> I'm going to take care of sfbug.jpg
[22:04:53] <Dominus> and try exult_studio1.png
[22:11:48] <servus> Eep, my sky is all crazy scary yellow looking!
[22:12:20] * wjp looks outside
[22:12:36] <servus> http://www.mountaininfo.com/webcam3/index.html
[22:13:07] <wjp> weird colour
[22:13:15] <Dominus> yeah
[22:13:20] <wjp> lots of blue/orange bands throughout the image
[22:13:22] <servus> Am I going to die!?
[22:13:42] <Dominus> if you have to ask...
[22:13:48] <servus> Wow!!! The sky is **amazing** outside of my apartment here!
[22:14:05] <servus> I wonder if Nix will let me take an image from my webcam...
[22:14:12] <servus> If I can find it, that is :)
[22:34:16] <Dominus> hmm, maybe exult_studio1.jpg was left in because it looks like crap when reduced to a sensible size...
[22:37:26] <wjp> what size do you want it to be?
[22:38:03] <wjp> the screenshot is rather outdated, so it might be better to just make a new one
[22:38:19] <Dominus> true
[22:38:36] <Dominus> might do it tomorrow. I'm falling asleep here soon
[22:38:50] <wjp> which resolution would you prefer?
[22:39:03] --> SB-X has joined #exult
[22:39:08] <wjp> 800x600?
[22:39:14] <Dominus> don't care much
[22:39:17] <SB-X> hi
[22:40:26] <Dominus> hi
[22:40:40] <wjp> http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/exult_studio1.png
[22:41:30] <Dominus> yay
[22:46:48] <servus> The blond female avatar is a little too pretty, methinks...
[22:47:01] * servus has that portrait plastered all over an altar above his toilet
[22:48:25] * SB-X sighs. IE tries to load pngs with QuickTime plugin.
[22:50:11] <Dominus> it's actually not IE's fault, but Quicktime that trie to take over
[22:50:42] <Dominus> the only alternative is to go "quicktime alternative" and deinstall the damn thing
[22:50:56] <Dominus> same with real player
[22:50:57] <SB-X> i just changed its mime settings hopefully it wont take over again
[22:52:12] <SB-X> that picture looks like Exult Studio!
[22:52:48] <Dominus> kill it kill it kill it kill it kill il kill it kill it kill it kill it kill it kill il kill it kill it kill it kill it kill it kill il kill it kill it kill it kill it kill it kill il kill it kill it kill it kill it kill it kill il kill it
[22:52:50] <Dominus> (or blow it up :-))
[22:53:31] * SB-X closes IE.
[22:56:44] <Dominus> ah, I get more intelligent spam/virus mail now
[22:58:00] <Dominus> in german and very personal in the style of: If you have to offend me just for sending you love mails, you can kiss my ass. Here are are your damn mails back! (and attached is an executable) :-)
[22:59:02] <Dominus> the other one I got today was the same style but about threatening mails I was supposed to have sent
[22:59:40] <Dominus> I can imagine people actually executing those attachements (if they are stupid enough)
[23:01:35] <Dominus> wjp: will you comit that png? I#m thinking if we really should exchange it. AFAIR it was the very first screenshot of ES and it might be nice to have it around...
[23:04:23] <wjp> I can leave the .jpg there if you want
[23:05:13] <Dominus> I don't know. maybe yes. I really gotta sleep now I think
[23:05:26] <wjp> hm, yeah, me too :-)
[23:05:30] <Dominus> see you tomorrow
[23:05:31] <wjp> g'night
[23:05:35] <Dominus> night
[23:05:39] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("a pooka invited me to Charlie's")
