[11:56:27] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[11:56:31] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[11:57:16] <Dominus> Darke, Colourless, Kirben, check out http://members.chello.at/dominus/PSOGL2_001.jpg upt to http://members.chello.at/dominus/PSOGL2_037.jpg
[11:57:25] <Dominus> grr
[11:57:34] <Dominus> lower case dominus please
[11:57:53] <Dominus> damn my irc client
[11:58:12] <Dominus> those are screenshots of Ultima Underworld for Playstation
[11:58:14] <Dominus> enjoy!
[11:58:19] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Client Quit)
[11:58:25] <Darke> Oooh, neat!
[11:59:24] <Colourless> lower case?
[12:00:42] <Darke> His irc client obviously has a chronic case of title-caps-itis, requiring his nice to start with an upper case 'D', rather then lower case. *grin*
[12:44:02] --> WishStone has joined #Exult
[12:44:34] * WishStone greets
[12:44:50] <Colourless> Greetings and salutations
[12:44:57] <Fl00der> greetings
[13:07:53] * Darke paints WishStone green.
[13:07:59] <WishStone> eeeeeeek!!!
[13:08:11] * WishStone shakes off the paint, spraying to everywhere
[13:08:12] <Colourless> :-)
[13:08:44] * Darke ducks under the couch, cleverly avoiding the spray of paint before reappearing to green-everywhere-ness.
[13:09:23] <Darke> Ooooh, you said *greetings* not *greenthings*, my mistake.
[13:09:49] * WishStone rumbles
[13:10:11] <Colourless> you see what he's like?
[13:10:38] * WishStone eyes a bottle of ketsup... eyes up the Darke-thing
[13:11:04] <Colourless> and the rest of the time he just sits around looking cute and innocent while in the small head of his he is thinking up his next devilish trick
[13:11:34] <Darke> Rabbit pie goes better with barbequeque sauce, I'm told. In any event I'm not crunchy anyway. *noddle*
[13:12:35] <-- Darke was kicked from #exult by Colourless (What have I said about that before?)
[13:12:36] --> Darke has joined #exult
[13:12:36] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Darke
[13:13:01] * Darke rubs his tail. Hey! That's not nice!
[13:13:19] <Colourless> maybe not at your end :-)
[13:13:21] <WishStone> *hmpfs* You should show some more respect, Mister Darke. If only for the sake of my hobbies http://listings.ebay.de/plistings/list/all/category26143/page2.html?from=R4
[13:13:52] <Colourless> eek. German!
[13:14:19] <WishStone> Sorry, my order was placed to be born in Canada, but someone messed up the paperwork and then...
[13:15:22] <Colourless> Canada?!?! Why not lovely Australia! Home of Darke and Colourless
[13:15:34] <Colourless> then again, maybe the close proximity of Darke would be a good reason to stay away
[13:15:43] <Darke> Heh. I'm a rabbit. I'm not stupid enough to stand around and fight. *grin*
[13:15:45] <WishStone> Does "most dense accumilation of deadly animals in the world" ring a bell?
[13:15:57] <Darke> Yes, yes it does.
[13:16:00] <WishStone> ;]
[13:16:30] <WishStone> Only thing I had to look out for in NB was the skunk when she was in a bad mood. *remembers a few fond memories of her times there*
[13:17:41] <Colourless> well, we don't have skunks here :-)
[13:18:01] <WishStone> No, just a bunch of things that can kill you with one bite/sting/look :P
[13:18:37] <Darke> Most of which 99.99% of the population has never seen, let alone had the chance to be bitten by them. *grin*
[13:18:51] <Colourless> :-)
[13:19:23] <WishStone> I rather stay where the worst that can bite is either a mosqito or a black fly
[13:19:33] <Colourless> argh!
[13:19:36] <Colourless> :-)
[13:19:51] <Darke> Snakes have a nasty tendancy of *not* liking hairless monkies, nor their noisy cars/houses and such, so if someone's stupid enough to go and harass them, then... well... think of it as chlorine in the gene pool. *grin*
[13:19:55] <WishStone> *remembers black flies* Well, if I could avoid these...
[13:20:24] <WishStone> Darke: Harrasment = Breathing? :P
[13:21:05] <Colourless> snakes don't go searching for trouble
[13:21:11] <Darke> WishStone: Stomping on them. Picking them up by the tail and saying with an exagerated .au accent, "Look at the teeth on this one, mate!", and so on.
[13:21:19] <WishStone> *lol*
[13:21:59] <WishStone> Yeah, well, but I can already sing the CA hymn, so I could safe myself some time ;]
[13:22:50] <Darke> Spiders are similar. Most either avoid humans, or are easily avoided by such. Or in some cases are exceedingly deadly (IIRC, such as the daddy longlegs), but are completely harmless to humans because they don't have jaws big enough to bite them. (They're great to keep around the house to keep the insects down. *grin*)
[13:23:38] <Colourless> the daddy longlegs has really toxic venom is an urban legend. It's not true
[13:23:39] <WishStone> Yeah, but they make a huge mess everywhere.
[13:23:54] * WishStone has at least 3 dozen behind a cupboard she can't move in her dorm room
[13:24:44] <Darke> Colourless: Ahh. Was never sure of that, it always sounded dodgy to me. There are a couple of other spiders that are like that though, I just can never remember the names. *grin*
[13:25:36] <WishStone> "Karateanzug f. Kinder Gr. 170 mit w. Gürtel" Okay, NOW I'm sad....
[13:25:49] <WishStone> It says "Karate dress for CHILDREZN size 170cm ....
[13:25:58] <WishStone> .... * IS 170cm * .....
[13:26:09] <Colourless> well, define child :-)
[13:26:20] <Colourless> darke: http://www.snopes.com/critters/wild/longlegs.htm
[13:26:45] <WishStone> Well, I do need something to snuggle when sleeping, either Fangorn Dragon or a blankie ;]
[13:28:59] * Darke has heard teddy bears are good for that too. *grin*
[13:29:11] <WishStone> Fang is furry, does that count?
[13:29:55] <Darke> Hrm... yeah. I guess so. *grin*
[13:29:59] <WishStone> ;]
[13:30:04] <Colourless> :-)
[13:38:46] <WishStone> ahhh, finally...
[13:39:12] <WishStone> Hakamas are so bloody hard to find on eBay :P
[13:40:14] * Colourless is clueless as to what WishStone is talking about
[13:42:10] <WishStone> Hakama? You wear that when practicing Aikido.
[13:42:16] <WishStone> http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=9189&item=3650820547
[13:42:44] <WishStone> Praticing Aikido without a Hakama is like jokking in your underpants ;] Some Sensei get realy upset if you try to :P
[13:45:20] <Colourless> i see
[13:45:28] <WishStone> I started karate a few years ago, went up till 'th Kyu and then lost intrest in Karate... So I'm looking for new waters ;]
[13:45:37] <WishStone> 4th even
[13:50:14] * Darke is bored... and bounces on WishStone's head.
[13:50:26] <Darke> Nice view from up here! *bounce*
[13:50:50] * WishStone snaps her head back and clicks her yaws closed around the bunny, caging it
[13:50:58] * WishStone grumbles, with her mouth full
[13:51:08] <Colourless> :-)
[13:51:29] <WishStone> Hill hu 'ehave 'ow? *grumbles through clenched teeth*
[13:51:52] <Colourless> i doubt it will
[13:52:37] * Darke yelps! and pulls on the dragon's fangs, "I'm innocent I tell you! Innocent! Oh... wait. Wrong script."
[13:53:14] * Darke pages through script... ahh, I see, "Let me out! I'm fattening! Hrm... that's not it either."
[13:53:28] * WishStone mumbles, wraps her sinous dragon tounge around the bunny and sits it on the ground, dripping in precious Dragon-slobber and starts coughing up furballs
[13:53:59] <Darke> Hey! Watch out! You're getting the script all slobbery... ewwww! *dampfluff*
[13:55:03] <Colourless> you shouldn't stick just anything in your mouth. You have no idea where it's been.
[13:55:10] * Darke hangs the script in front of Colourless' muzzle. So he can let it dry in front of an open fire... or something.
[13:55:22] <WishStone> You where saying, Colourless?
[13:56:19] <Darke> I believe he was saying something about you've no idea where it's been. And I agree. Even *I* don't have a clue where that script was, it was really unhygenic of you to try and eat it, really!
[13:57:56] <Colourless> it's more unhygenic to stick a uncleaned rabbit in your mouth
[13:59:04] * WishStone pfft's
[13:59:05] <Darke> Oi! I'm a clean bun!
[13:59:22] <WishStone> Perhaps next time I should wash my mouth out after... with, say, bunny blood?
[13:59:29] <Colourless> and just how would I know?
[13:59:35] * WishStone grins, showing many nice teeth
[14:00:24] <Darke> WishStone: Oooooh! I didn't know you were a *vampire* dragon! There's a blood bank down the street to cater for such desires y'know? *noddle*
[14:00:57] <Darke> Colourless: My black fur's all nice and shiny. *fluff!* So you know it's clean and taken care of. *noddle*
[14:01:08] * WishStone burns down the lill bunny "tail", if you can call the fluff that, in a sharp green flame
[14:01:42] * Darke yips! Hey! That's not nice!
[14:01:53] <Colourless> it's no more than you deserve
[14:01:59] <WishStone> *grins* Now THERE is an improvement!
[14:02:17] <WishStone> You can actually see there is supposed to be bone structure in the.... furrmass that you call a tail.
[14:03:49] * Darke pokes his tongue at WishStone and wiggles his tail anyway, even if it's a bit less furry then usual.
[14:08:46] * WishStone puts in a Monty Python DVD
[14:10:11] <Darke> Hrm... you know it's a slow news day, when GTK+ file selectors are a news item on /. *grin*
[14:13:07] <Colourless> but you are talking about /. though
[14:13:52] <Colourless> something like that could even be 'big' news
[14:16:09] <Colourless> of course statistics that wjp got from after www.math.leidenuniv.nl site got slashdotted was most of people coming from /. were infact using IE
[14:16:49] <Colourless> so something like GTK+ file selectors probably wouldn't be 'that' interesting
[14:19:29] <Darke> Sure. But /. probably thinks I'm coming from an IE browser too, doesn't mean I am (and I'm not). I just had to set it like that (like no doubt thousands of other people) to get other web pages to work that refuse to work unless you id yourself as IE.

[15:44:14] <Fl00der> right...
