[02:24:53] <watt> hi wjp.
[02:25:07] <wjp> hi
[02:27:50] <watt> checked out the unpackshp tool.. you weren't kidding about the need of a rewrite I see. (which might make me useful once again.
[02:28:01] <watt> oh yeah. Happy new year.
[02:32:26] <wjp> yeah, unpackshp was originally the tool I was using to try to figure out the compression method
[02:33:02] <wjp> you're still back in 2003, right?
[02:33:12] <wjp> ah well, happy new year anyway :-)
[02:34:20] <watt> yeah.. I got 3 and 1/2 hours to go... and I'll probably be coding something or another over that time.
[02:35:28] <wjp> figuring out that algorithm was rather a lot of trial and error as you can see from the amount of #ifdef's in there :-)
[02:35:51] <watt> right.. I figured that much.
[02:37:13] <wjp> I wonder if I documented the format somewhere properly
[02:38:40] <watt> Is there a modern-day equivalent to the flex writer?
[02:41:02] <wjp> hm, no, don't think so
[02:42:02] <watt> hmm..
[02:43:33] <wjp> we don't really have a proper writing framework yet
[02:47:30] <watt> yeah.. probably still a bit over my head to attempt to add it too.
[02:51:42] <watt> although.. I could copy over the sources, update what's possible now (the Writes and the Reads) and slowly attempt to change things.
[02:51:49] * watt thinking about it.
[02:55:39] <watt> well.. it could be a good experiment to learn more about Flex files.
[02:55:51] <watt> for me that is.
[02:59:18] <wjp> flex files are really quite easy
[03:07:22] <watt> "const char * const * const argv" - YES!
[03:09:13] <watt> I get too excited over the use of const when I see it.

[03:11:34] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[03:12:33] <watt> hiya
[03:14:02] <Fingolfin> and a happy new year to you guys!
[03:15:14] <Darke> Happy Nude Year! (I just give a minorly different greeting in each channel. *grin*)
[03:19:43] <wjp> happy new year Darke, Fingolfin
[03:26:08] <wjp> yay, finished HotU
[03:26:50] <Fingolfin> hehe
[03:27:00] <wjp> got up to level 27
[03:27:00] <Fingolfin> you folks apparently have far too much time spare for playing games like NWN =)
[03:27:17] <wjp> well, it is a holiday currently :-)
[03:31:36] * Darke doesn't have *any* time spare to play gams like NWN! Other games, however...
[03:32:19] * wjp has Geneforge 2 and Broken Sword 3 on his games-to-play list currently
[03:33:49] * Darke has X2: The Threat on his list of games to play, but that pretty much requires a large video card upgrade first, if you don't want to play it in slideshow mode.
[03:34:07] <wjp> I saw the video card talk in the logs :-)
[03:34:16] * wjp went through that only a short while ago :-)
[03:37:24] <wjp> time for me to go
