[00:08:34] --> Kirben has joined #pentagram
[00:08:35] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben

[12:04:17] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[12:04:43] <Colourless> hi
[12:04:53] <wjp> hi
[12:12:58] <-- Darke has left IRC (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
[12:13:32] --> Darke has joined #pentagram
[12:13:53] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Darke
[12:14:30] <Darke> Greetings.
[12:14:49] * Darke *had* said that earlier, just as his adsl connection dropped and apparently it never escaped the local network. *grin*
[12:15:13] <Colourless> excuses, excuses
[12:15:45] <wjp> well, even if that was the first time, it was still only a delay of 9 minutes. That's not even close to my record.
[12:16:08] <Colourless> well, what does that say about you then :-)
[12:16:47] <Darke> Colourless: That wjp's world domination plans are further ahead then ours are, causing him to have less time to devote to paying attention to irc?
[12:17:35] <Colourless> hmm, isn't that much obvious. He's going to a Doctor well before either of us too will be... and then it's only a small step to 'Evil Doctor' status
[12:18:59] <Colourless> we just can't compete with that
[12:19:34] <Darke> Hrm... we'll just have to make sure our evil is more subtle then his then. *noddle*
[12:19:38] <wjp> uh oh; they're on to me
[12:19:45] <wjp> oops, did I say that out loud?
[12:20:01] <Colourless> :-)
[12:20:06] <Darke> Uhh... no, I don't think so. It was just your imagination. Yeah.
[12:21:34] * Darke attempts to corrupt exultbot over to the side of non-wjp-evil with a large bribe of Source Porn.
[12:21:50] <Colourless> :-)
[12:21:51] * Darke then checks if sourceporn.net is registered. Now *that* is a domain name!
[12:22:23] <Colourless> no it's not :-)
[12:23:05] <Colourless> quick darke... where's your credit card, this is your big chance :-)
[12:23:47] * Colourless is kind of glad he doesn't have a credit card himself.... he just has a feeling he would start 'buying' up various domain names :-)
[12:24:04] <Darke> Don't have one. I *am* however, extremely tempted to get my flatmate to register it on my behalf when he returns from his lanparty this weekend. *grin*
[12:24:59] <Darke> I've been wanting a useful domain name for quite a while, just to use to redirect to my ssh server at home. This is got to be the first one that's struck me as a 'must have'. *grin*
[12:25:39] <Colourless> :-)
[12:28:09] <Darke> Unfortunately it looks like all the various sp.net* addresses are already taken, ah well. *grin*
[12:28:48] <Colourless> oh no!
[12:29:56] * Darke would be particularly tempted to stick up a proper webswerver on that with some appropriately surreal content.
[12:30:30] <Colourless> quite likely any <word>porn.* domain is probably already owned by someone
[12:32:25] <Darke> According to (*gag*) NetworkSolutions it's available.
[12:32:49] <Darke> As is .org .info .biz .tv .us .cc .ws .bz .vg .gs .tc and .ms
[12:35:25] <Colourless> well is it taken or not
[12:35:42] <Darke> Nope.
[12:36:09] <Darke> I could register it right this minute if I had a credit card. *grin* Mine all mine! *muhahaha!*
[12:40:12] * Darke ponders what evil he could inflict on people silly enough to go to a sourceporn.net webpage...
[12:40:41] <Colourless> hmm... lets see, ascii art porn made using source code?
[12:40:52] <Colourless> but that is kind of obvious :-)
[12:41:22] <Colourless> wide open source code perhaps? :-)
[12:42:23] <Colourless> all of your pentagram quotes :-)
[12:42:27] * Darke wouldn't know anything about such. He's *far* too innocent. *halo*
[12:42:52] <Colourless> (including *that* one)
[12:43:33] * Darke thinks Colourless is simply far too cynical and jaded. That's it. *grin*
[12:44:06] <Colourless> damn right i'm cynical and jaded
[12:44:28] <Colourless> but it's justifiable!
[12:45:27] <Colourless> you try living under the constant threat of bunny attacks... it changes you man
[12:49:21] * Darke snickers.
[12:56:01] * Darke wonders if he should just bug a friend of his and put Whamadoodles Online up on sourceporn.net. It'd be an appropriately lazy thing to do, and also sufficiently evil and twisted. *grin*
[12:58:54] <wjp> bbl
[12:59:55] * Darke waves, and sets an appropriately evil trap for wjp, for his return. *evilcackle*
[13:00:15] <Colourless> :-)
[13:00:19] <Colourless> bye wjp :-)
[14:35:41] <-- Kirben has left IRC ("System Meltdown")
[15:17:54] <wjp> hey, who left this evil trap lying around here? *steps around trap*
[15:51:59] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("brb")
[15:55:12] --> Colourless has joined #Pentagram
[15:55:16] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[16:00:12] <wjp> bbl again; dinner this time :-)
[16:00:44] <Colourless> :-)
[16:00:51] <Colourless> lucky for you, i think the bunny's gone
[16:44:37] <wjp> I'm almost done with the first step of the new config system... writing it
[16:44:47] <Colourless> :-)
[16:44:49] <wjp> I expect the second step (debugging it) to be a bit longer
[16:45:05] <wjp> the last step (using it) should be fairly painless again
[19:18:36] <wjp> well, new conf stuff compiles and links
[19:23:51] <wjp> and unbelievably it actually properly reads settings :-)
[19:27:10] <wjp> writing seems ok too
[19:41:11] <-- Colourless has left IRC (saberhagen.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[19:41:11] <-- Kazin has left IRC (saberhagen.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[19:41:11] <-- khalek has left IRC (saberhagen.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[19:41:11] <-- wjp has left IRC (saberhagen.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[19:41:45] --> Colourless has joined #pentagram
[19:41:45] --> Kazin has joined #pentagram
[19:41:45] --> wjp has joined #pentagram
[19:41:45] --> khalek has joined #pentagram
[20:54:49] * wjp is having fun converting pentagram over to the new framework...
[20:55:10] <wjp> already perl-ed the .cfg files in data to new .ini files
[21:33:13] <wjp> well, pentagram is running again
[21:37:31] <Colourless> that'd good :-)
[21:39:07] <wjp> so, want me to inflict this on you already? :-)
[21:39:59] <Colourless> you can commit it, doesn't mean i'm going to update or compile till sometime later
[21:44:04] <wjp> hm, marks are still broken
[21:44:10] <wjp> listing works but recalling doesn't
[21:47:33] <Colourless> why not?
[21:48:11] <wjp> the 'u8:marks' syntax handling is probably a bit flaky
[21:52:46] <wjp> ah, it's looking at marks:hanoi in [u8] instead of hanoi in [u8:marks] :-)
[21:54:18] <wjp> right, works now
[21:56:33] <wjp> any objections to just putting the new code in conf/ ?
[21:56:41] <Colourless> no
[21:59:13] <wjp> this should be fun :-)
[22:08:27] <wjp> all done
[22:09:57] <wjp> a minimal pentagram.ini would look like:
[22:10:00] <wjp> [pentagram]
[22:10:05] <wjp> data=/data/pentagram/pentagram/data
[22:10:08] <wjp> [u8]
[22:10:10] <wjp> path=/data/u8
[22:14:21] <wjp> (and the data bit may not even be necessary if the data is in the default place)
[22:46:50] <Colourless> going
[22:46:54] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("casts invisibility")
