[12:21:18] <Colourless> hi
[13:01:41] --> wjp has joined #exult
[13:01:41] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to wjp
[13:23:28] <Colourless> Time for some Bad News: Interplay has shut down Black Isle Studios and in the process has shelved Fallout 3, which pretty much means it's as good as gone
[13:24:04] <wjp> yeah, I read :-(
[13:28:28] <-- Kirben has left IRC ("System Meltdown")

[13:54:53] <wjp> rather an interesting spamming technique, this
[13:55:34] <wjp> an SMTP server that has been blackholed is sending mail with my address as From: through some SMTP server at bredband.net
[13:55:52] <wjp> and that last SMTP server is bouncing the spam to me
[13:55:53] <wjp> *sigh*
[13:56:16] <wjp> got close to 50 of those in 24 hours
[13:56:22] <Darke> Yeah. I got a bunch of that hitting me the other day, through my darke@sf.net account.
[13:56:36] <wjp> yeah, through my ...@users.sf.net for me too
[13:57:28] <wjp> hm, on second though not all are bounced through something in bredband.net
[13:57:34] <Darke> It hasn't hit my other accounts, so it looks like they grabbed it from pentagram related stuff.
[13:58:00] <wjp> russian spam, too
[13:58:05] <Darke> Mine weren't all bounced through a same place either. Deleted them though, and thus can't remember exactly whom they were all coming from.
[13:59:47] <Darke> Gah. Must sleep, work in the morning. Good luck with your spam problem. *grin*
[13:59:52] <Darke> Night!
[14:00:43] <wjp> night :-)
[14:05:26] <Colourless> so wjp, what do you think of NWN?
[14:11:18] <wjp> oh, I'm enjoying playing it :-)
[14:11:37] <wjp> runs perfectly in linux, too
[14:11:56] <wjp> as for the plot, I finished chapter 2 this weekend
[14:12:35] <wjp> which reminds me... the linux version doesn't show any of the movies :/
[14:12:47] <wjp> so I guess it isn't quite "perfectly" :-)
[14:19:10] <Colourless> the movies are nothing special
[14:19:32] <Colourless> hell, I can't even remember what they were, they were so unspectacular.
[14:19:54] <Colourless> i *think* there were pretty much just moving stills with voice overs
[14:20:29] <wjp> there's a textfile with the subtitles of the movies in it, so I guess I'm not missing too much
[14:20:38] <wjp> 'moving stills'? :-)
[14:21:01] <wjp> oh, yay, another 45 of those spams all in 1 minute
[14:21:05] <wjp> 47...
[14:21:10] <wjp> 48...
[14:21:41] <Colourless> oooh, fun fun fun for you :-)
[14:22:13] <wjp> well, no new ones in 20 seconds or so, so maybe it stopped :-)
[14:22:38] <Colourless> It's funny with NWN i actually found myself 'role playing' more than I have in other RPGs
[14:29:03] <Colourless> While I enjoyed the game, there were more than a few occasions where i felt like beating some sense into the 'plot
[14:30:02] <wjp> I'll have to finish it first before I can really comment on the plot
[14:30:03] <wjp> :-)
[14:30:09] <Colourless> ' NPCs for their IMO stupid reactions to what was going on in the world around them.
[14:30:36] <Colourless> (accidently pressed enter mid sentence there :-)
[14:30:55] <wjp> I was waiting for the rest because of a missing ', anyway ;-)
[14:31:15] <wjp> I have to go
[14:31:22] <Colourless> cya
