[13:37:57] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[13:38:08] <Colourless> hi
[14:46:01] <Colourless> grrr. where is fingolfin.
[14:52:01] --> fingolfin has joined #exult
[14:52:24] <fingolfin> hi
[14:52:28] <Colourless> hi
[14:52:37] <Colourless> bad news. forum is down :-)
[14:53:11] <fingolfin> not again :)
[14:53:28] <Colourless> ya
[14:53:38] <fingolfin> strange, all these failures, and I am not even involved! :)
[14:54:24] <fingolfin> hm, indeed, I can't even load the page it seems
[14:54:29] <fingolfin> that's what you meant with down, too?
[14:54:39] <Colourless> yes
[14:55:03] <fingolfin> yuck
[14:55:15] <fingolfin> so we can't even see if it is again a MySQL problem, or what
[14:55:35] <Colourless> this happened once before, and i think it was a sql problem
[14:55:46] <Colourless> i think...
[15:06:29] <fingolfin> twice actually, but then I could still see the pages, only empty & error outputs
[15:06:47] <Colourless> this exact thing happened to me once before
[15:06:53] <Colourless> page wouldn't even load
[15:08:20] <Colourless> anyway i'm going now. might be back later
[15:08:33] <-- Colourless has left IRC (is gone)
[16:04:04] --> wjp has joined #exult
[16:04:07] <wjp> hi
[16:34:04] <-- Kirben has left IRC (Ping timeout for Kirben[co3007967-a.brasd1.vic.optushome.com.au])
[16:47:43] <wjp> ouch... my eyes...
[16:57:06] * wjp thinks the creators of phorum are colourblind
[17:05:07] <fingolfin> hi willem
[17:05:15] <wjp> hi
[17:05:19] * fingolfin was afk but once more forgot to set awaw or change his nick :(
[17:05:22] <wjp> phorum was kind of broken...
[17:05:25] <fingolfin> I really need an auto-away plugin or so :)
[17:05:29] <wjp> :-)
[17:05:30] <fingolfin> wjp: yeah, ryan and me noticed
[17:06:22] <wjp> you can still check if it's an SQL issue even if the page is down, btw. Just use commandline mysql from exult.sf.net
[17:06:32] <wjp> see my email for details, btw
[17:07:16] <wjp> oh, and you may want to adjust the colours a bit
[17:07:24] <wjp> I can't seem to remember what they looked like before
[17:08:53] <fingolfin> I need to read my back mail
[17:08:58] <fingolfin> ouch
[17:09:00] <fingolfin> that hurts
[17:09:11] <fingolfin> I think we used some shades of gray, to fit in with the rest of the page
[17:09:25] <wjp> you should see the colours phorum set by default :-)
[17:09:34] <fingolfin> no, really no need :)
[17:09:42] <wjp> these blueish colours are mine :-)
[17:09:44] <fingolfin> those blue tones are not that bad actually
[17:09:46] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[17:09:49] <wjp> hi
[17:09:50] <fingolfin> hi Dominus
[17:10:00] <fingolfin> wjp: so I lucked out with my last comment I hope =)
[17:10:03] <wjp> they were alternatingly dark blue and bright yellow
[17:10:06] <Dominus> hi
[17:10:17] * wjp puts the trout down again :-)
[17:11:19] <fingolfin> ouch
[17:11:23] <fingolfin> :)
[17:12:23] * wjp plays with the colours some more
[17:12:48] <wjp> hmm, not quite right either
[17:13:03] <wjp> someone help me out here :-)
[17:13:25] <Dominus> the blue colour is not right
[17:13:31] <wjp> darker? lighter?
[17:13:47] <Dominus> hmmmm
[17:14:00] <Dominus> Iīll look in my IE cache for an older version
[17:14:14] * wjp wishes Nadir would remember to make dirs/files group r/w/x-able
[17:16:13] <wjp> ugh... that looks strange
[17:16:25] * wjp continues tweaking
[17:19:31] <Dominus> wasnīt it a darker shade of grey (or lighter)
[17:19:34] <Dominus> ?
[17:19:50] <wjp> yes, but which one? ;-)
[17:20:07] <Dominus> I mean instead of the blue
[17:20:52] <wjp> hmm, could be
[17:20:54] <wjp> like this?
[17:21:26] <Dominus> no I think the one that is light grey was darker than the other
[17:21:41] <wjp> ?
[17:21:47] <Dominus> the one that is light grey now
[17:21:58] <wjp> I'll try making that one darker
[17:22:08] <-- fingolfin has left IRC (Read error to fingolfin[pD9E1C420.dip0.t-ipconnect.de]: EOF from client)
[17:22:24] <wjp> better?
[17:22:25] --> fingolfin has joined #exult
[17:22:46] <Dominus> that seems to be about right, I guess
[17:22:48] <fingolfin> I think it looks OK now
[17:22:50] <fingolfin> I wouldn't worry too much about it
[17:23:09] <fingolfin> but I wonder why xchat just crashed, second time this happens - for some reasons, my computer suddenly wants to start gnome-panel, which crashes, and also crashes xchat
[17:23:23] <wjp> I wonder why that config file was erased
[17:23:48] <wjp> do we have a quota on /home/groups/e/ex/exult ?
[17:23:51] <Dominus> yeah, strange
[17:24:26] <fingolfin> we have a quota of ~ 100 MB
[17:24:33] <fingolfin> do a quota -v to check
[17:24:49] <fingolfin> hm no wait
[17:24:56] <fingolfin> that would only show your personal quota, right?
[17:24:58] <wjp> already tried that :-)
[17:25:00] <wjp> yeah
[17:25:10] <fingolfin> but I am sure it is 100 MB for projects
[17:25:18] <fingolfin> and I don't see how we should use that much anyway
[17:25:20] <wjp> we're at about 15mb now
[17:25:36] <fingolfin> yeah
[17:26:15] --- wjp is now known as wjp|dinner
[17:26:16] <wjp|dinner> bbl
[17:26:46] <Dominus> fingolfin: please take a look at my homepage http://beam.to/dominik/
[17:26:54] <Dominus> how it looks on your system
[17:27:47] <fingolfin> sure
[17:28:08] <Dominus> thx, Iīm redoing it a little
[17:28:11] <fingolfin> I guess I am supposed to click on that spiral?
[17:28:16] <Dominus> yup
[17:28:51] <fingolfin> the left frame is not wide enough for me, causing it to have both vertical and horizontal scroll bars
[17:28:55] <Dominus> mainly I want to know if the nav frame is showing ok with all the buttons
[17:29:06] <Dominus> yeah, I have to change this
[17:29:27] <fingolfin> maybe use CSS or so to make sure the font used is not too big? and also, make the nav bar wider :)
[17:29:48] <Dominus> yup
[17:30:28] <fingolfin> hey, you are also a taurus? :)
[17:30:41] <Dominus> 4.5.
[17:31:05] <Dominus> you are born on?
[17:31:07] <fingolfin> 24.4.
[17:31:27] <fingolfin> hmm, your homepage is missing something important it seems
[17:31:41] <Dominus> a link to Exult?
[17:32:35] <fingolfin> hey, you are good :)
[17:32:59] <Dominus> just look at the news page, havenīt updated in ages
[17:33:31] <Dominus> my girlfriend was a bit upset that I didnīt mention her and it still mentiosn my old one

[17:33:38] <fingolfin> Religions of Worls -> good :)
[17:33:43] <fingolfin> hehehe
[17:33:46] <fingolfin> really? :)
[17:34:11] <Dominus> scherzhaft halt
[17:34:12] * fingolfin wonders if he can find that page that lists the various ways how each programming languages allows you to shot yourself in the foot
[17:34:32] <Dominus> that would be interesting
[17:34:36] <fingolfin> http://m5p.com/~pravn/foot.html
