[03:41:07] <sbx> (:
[07:21:41] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[07:22:05] <Yuv422> hello
[07:22:50] <sbx> hi!
[07:23:17] <sbx> where the !@#$ have you been???
[07:23:27] <sbx> oops
[07:23:33] <sbx> heh I mean how was your vacation? :)
[07:23:38] <sbx> (jk)
[07:23:44] <Yuv422> hey sbx
[07:23:50] <Yuv422> how's things?
[07:24:13] <sbx> I'm fine. Have to admit I havn't worked on Nuvie at all since you've been gone. :)
[07:24:19] <sbx> just doing other things
[07:25:01] <Yuv422> hehehe
[07:25:11] <Yuv422> yeah my vacation was great
[07:25:53] <Yuv422> It's good to be back though. ;)
[07:26:13] <Yuv422> I've just fixed my dodgy OS X snapshot
[07:26:34] <Yuv422> the sun moon movement looks good
[07:27:11] <Yuv422> I did notice that the tab key doesn't work when you're in the party view mode.
[07:27:15] <sbx> do you have any pictures?
[07:27:30] <Yuv422> hehe I've got tons of pictures
[07:27:31] <sbx> oh yeah, I guess TAB should switch to inventory
[07:27:32] <Yuv422> :)
[07:27:44] <sbx> did you go to Japan?
[07:27:49] <Yuv422> yes
[07:27:57] <Yuv422> I was there for three days
[07:28:07] <Yuv422> in Tokyo
[07:28:20] <sbx> "This forum requires that you wait 60 seconds before submitting another search. You have 360 seconds to wait before another search will be allowed."
[07:28:31] <sbx> oh that's great, just where I want to visit
[07:28:37] <sbx> what's that like
[07:28:45] <sbx> did you get attacked by robots?
[07:29:10] <Yuv422> nah, but I did see loads of vending machines. ;)
[07:29:25] <sbx> I hear they have everything in vending machines.
[07:29:27] <Yuv422> and I had a ride on the bullet train
[07:29:45] <Yuv422> yup you can even get hot coffee in a can from a vending machine
[07:29:48] <sbx> train officials just admitted they've been going 10kph over their designated speed limits
[07:30:00] <Yuv422> really
[07:30:49] <sbx> according to japantoday.com
[07:31:04] <sbx> doesn't beat your hot coffee in a can encounter though
[07:31:09] <sbx> that's just crazy
[07:31:52] <sbx> do they still have pay phones?
[07:32:51] <Yuv422> yes
[07:35:14] <sbx> Ok I know they are more advanced than those in the US, but I thought they might have been replaced by cell phones.
[07:35:41] <Yuv422> they have some pretty crazy mobile phones over there
[07:35:48] <Yuv422> they can do almost anything
[07:36:22] <Yuv422> I saw a guy driving his car while using a notebook computer and watching TV.
[07:36:50] <sbx> cool...that sounds safe
[07:36:56] <Yuv422> you can even have a TV screen mounted in your dash
[07:37:52] <Yuv422> it's illegal for you to have a TV screen that the driver can see. Here in Australia
[07:38:02] <sbx> that's the same way here
[07:38:37] <Yuv422> obviously they don't have such laws in Japan. :)
[07:38:48] <sbx> or they don't follow them
[07:38:57] <sbx> maybe they are better drivers than us? :)
[07:39:08] <sbx> did you try to speak Japanese?
[07:39:19] <Yuv422> only a little
[07:39:30] <Yuv422> hello, thankyou
[07:39:37] <Yuv422> that sort of thing
[07:40:04] <sbx> Iraishimashite!
[07:40:12] * sbx bows.
[07:41:05] <Yuv422> you should go to japan
[07:41:15] <Yuv422> it's a nice place to visit
[07:41:39] <sbx> yes, enough of me making jokes without knowing anything about it
[07:41:50] <sbx> you must have gone somewhere besides tokyo?
[07:42:01] <Yuv422> what's the flight time for you to get to japan?
[07:42:17] <sbx> beats me
[07:42:18] <Yuv422> I went to Mt Fuji too. :)
[07:42:59] <sbx> Were you able to see it from everywhere else you went?
[07:43:05] <Yuv422> it's about 9 hours from sydney, australia
[07:43:33] <Yuv422> I could see Mt Fuji from my hotel
[07:44:04] <Yuv422> on a clear day
[07:44:20] <sbx> that sounds like excellent scenery
[07:44:23] <sbx> where are the pics?
[07:44:44] <Yuv422> one moment
[07:45:41] <sbx> it would be 20h from here to Tokyo
[07:46:35] <sbx> but I don't have any money right now
[07:46:44] <Yuv422> Ouch
[07:49:10] <sbx> hmm
[07:49:14] <sbx> it's mostly the hotel room isn't it
[07:49:52] <sbx> DSC00168_scaled.JPG
[07:49:55] <sbx> Who's that?
[07:50:36] <Yuv422> have a guess. :)
[07:51:12] <sbx> Eric Fry?
[07:51:36] <Yuv422> yup
[07:52:04] <Yuv422> I was quite cold when that photo was taken.
[07:53:08] <sbx> yeah I'd rather go in the spring
[07:53:15] <sbx> but that's cool
[07:53:27] <sbx> or... cold rather, but that was your point wasn't it
[07:54:00] <sbx> hmm
[07:54:29] <sbx> its wintery but there is a lot of vegetation
[07:54:40] <sbx> DSC00269_scaled.JPG
[07:55:01] <sbx> that is awesome
[07:55:22] <sbx> Oh! Action shots...
[07:55:53] <sbx> car's don't drive in Ginza?
[07:56:32] <Yuv422> not on sundays
[07:57:06] <sbx> i see
[07:57:21] <sbx> I don't think they could possibly pack any more billboards up there on those buildings.
[07:58:19] <Yuv422> yeah that's tokyo for you. :)
[07:58:41] <sbx> I feel pretty ignorant commenting on these.
[07:58:55] <Yuv422> why's that?
[08:00:42] * sbx shrugs.
[08:01:09] <sbx> I should be asking about the temples or something.
[08:02:02] <sbx> or if you visited any good restaurants
[08:02:12] <sbx> not asking if you got attacked by robots... sounds like an American making fun of Japan
[08:02:37] <sbx> but I do see you got one of the old toilets
[08:02:41] <sbx> tough luck
[08:03:34] <Yuv422> you should see the traditional toilets.
[08:04:18] <sbx> oops
[08:04:21] <sbx> I hadnt zoomed in
[08:04:23] <sbx> thats the new one
[08:05:01] <sbx> this is where you order hot coffee?
[08:05:50] <sbx> that's a stupid joke
[08:05:54] <sbx> nice hotel room
[08:08:15] <sbx> you really zoomed in on the command console
[08:18:46] <sbx> :)
[08:23:25] <Yuv422> I just cut that part out of the larger picture
[08:23:56] <sbx> oh
[08:24:00] <sbx> sorry I'm pretty tired :)
[08:24:21] <sbx> that hotel room made me think of Lost In Translation
[08:27:33] <sbx> You wen't somewhere else?
[08:27:38] <sbx> went*
[08:32:20] <-- Yuv422 has left IRC ()
[09:31:11] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[09:31:36] <Yuv422> that was were they filmed lost in translation
[09:33:32] <Yuv422> that was the reason I stayed there. :)
[09:34:41] <sbx> ah!
[09:34:51] <sbx> what was it? hilton?
[09:35:02] <Yuv422> park hyatt
[09:35:05] <sbx> oops
[09:35:23] <sbx> I do remember the scene with everyone standing around outside because of some false alarm. :)
[09:36:00] <sbx> I wonder why KtJ Dragon doesn't come in here more often
[09:36:13] <sbx> wb anyway
[09:36:16] <sbx> where else did you go?
[09:36:29] <Yuv422> I went to london
[09:36:39] <Yuv422> then to chamonix in france
[09:37:03] <Yuv422> then back to England and up to the lakes district
[09:37:15] <Yuv422> then back to london and then home
[09:37:28] <sbx> london is an interesting city too
[09:37:50] <Yuv422> yeah, loads of history there
[09:37:58] <sbx> you with a tour group or something?
[09:38:06] <Yuv422> nah
[09:38:29] <sbx> how about at that rice field in japan
[09:38:34] <sbx> you were on a time limit?
[09:38:35] <Yuv422> The only tours I went on were in Japan
[09:38:41] <sbx> oh I see
[09:38:48] <Yuv422> yeah
[09:38:55] <Yuv422> that was a quick photo stop
[09:40:13] <sbx> you take any more photos?
[09:40:24] <Yuv422> loads
[09:40:33] <sbx> I don't even have a digital camera.
[09:40:37] <Yuv422> but I haven't scaled them for the web yet
[09:40:50] <Yuv422> I got my camera for the trip
