[14:15:44] <DarkeZzz> /* Fnord */
[14:18:02] <Colourless> # Sophisticated retort
[14:18:28] <DarkeZzz> ; simplistic comment
[14:19:00] <Colourless> // complex way to make a lame reply
[14:20:23] <DarkeZzz> (* Riiiiiiight! *)
[14:21:33] <Colourless> rem byte me
[14:22:09] <DarkeZzz> C No thanks, I'll just nibble.
[14:25:10] <Fingolfin> % What the heck are you doing there?
[14:25:14] <DarkeZzz> ;;; Y'know, this is *really* getting sad...
[14:25:27] <Fingolfin> { I don't get it... did you practice for this? :-) }
[14:25:33] <Colourless> $ it's also getting really hard
[14:25:55] <Fingolfin> "Knowing many languages (like SmallTalk) helps, though"
[14:25:55] <DarkeZzz> -- I'm doing nothing! (Well... unless you count the nibbling...)
[14:26:16] <DarkeZzz> % Yeah, including the more estoric ones.
[14:26:39] <DarkeZzz> Curiousness. It turned my %% into %.
[14:26:49] <Fingolfin> haha you lost! :-)
[14:27:00] <Fingolfin> -- I know from AppleScript, where'd you get it from?
[14:27:08] <Fingolfin> I meant: "--" I know ... etc.
[14:27:48] <DarkeZzz> Lingo.
[14:27:56] <Colourless> ew
[14:28:27] <Colourless> the world would be a better place without lingo :-)
[14:28:33] * DarkeZzz blames having to try and help debug a student's coding work in that language. Turned out the lecturer was wrong that time. *grin*
[14:32:20] <Colourless> it's friday night on #pentagram, where it's comments all around
[14:32:21] <DarkeZzz> http://99-bottles-of-beer.ls-la.net/ <- For those who want a sampling of comments from most of the documented languages in the world. *grin*
[14:32:49] * DarkeZzz snickers.
[14:33:31] <DarkeZzz> It's kind of scary when you realse some of these high level languages, actually require *more* code to do this, then their assembly level equilivants...
[14:33:57] <Colourless> oh come on, is snickering all you can do... it was a pun, and you know it was intentional :-)
[14:34:46] * DarkeZzz presses the Big Red Switch... which drops a rather large anvil on Colourless' head. "That good enough?" *grin*
[14:35:18] <Colourless> *boing*
[14:35:33] <Fingolfin> dang, that wasn't good
[14:35:38] <Fingolfin> now we need to buy a new anvil
[14:37:05] * DarkeZzz passes Fingolfin an ACME catalogue.
[14:37:52] * DarkeZzz quickly hops behind the couch, expecting the catalogue to explode, disintegrate, or otherwise hurt someone like most of the stuff they sell. *grin*
[14:38:22] <Colourless> hey, ACME products are sound, if you just don't use them correctly, expect things to explode in your face
[14:38:38] <Colourless> always... always read the fine print
[14:40:36] * DarkeZzz reads the fine print on the anvil... "... do not drop on people's heads... it hurts." Ah!
[14:41:19] <Colourless> you obviously need the ACME 1 Tonne Weight
[14:43:17] <DarkeZzz> Does that have a "Designed for falling on people" label attached?
[14:44:04] * DarkeZzz 's fingers for some reason kept wanting to type, "Designed for Windows XP", like he's seen on more then a few products. As an afterthought it *does* make sense, perversely, after all, when windows crashes, it does tend to come down on you like a ton of bricks...
[14:44:10] <Colourless> what else would you do with it? I hear they are a tad brittle though. Tend to break after 1 use
[14:44:43] * Colourless is waiting for the comment "Again, like Windows"
[14:44:59] * DarkeZzz is politely holding his tongue. *grin*
[14:45:38] <DarkeZzz> Hrm... I'll get the ACME safe then. It's designed for falling on people, *and* it doesn't have this nasty tendancy to shatter. Though it does tend to result in it's victims^Wclients concetina-ing themselves.
[14:47:21] <Colourless> hmmm... i don't know. I've heard of instances where the safe ends up with a hole in the bottom with the clients ending up inside and then the door opening
[14:47:29] <Colourless> doesn't sound very 'safe' to me
[14:47:46] <DarkeZzz> That's only when it's empty though.
[14:47:59] <Colourless> ah i see
[14:49:16] <Colourless> just remember this. It is never a good idea to strap a rocket to your back under any circumstances. And never ever wear roller skates
[14:49:46] <Colourless> combining the 2 will bring great pain
[14:50:47] <DarkeZzz> Yes. That does seem to make a strange amount of sense...

[15:06:17] <Fingolfin> lol
[15:21:17] --- Colourless is now known as Cless|Away
[15:24:30] * DarkeZzz decides to do the 'sleeping' thing, since he's almost there already. *grin* Night!
