[15:49:51] <pupnik> New $595 home computer! http://fargoal.com/homeimages/pspetsm.jpg
[15:50:38] <watt> http://www.bungie.net/inside/jobs.aspx
[15:50:50] <watt> Bungie is hiring programmers.
[15:51:21] <watt> Listed as one of their plusses: A love of combat on the high seas
[15:54:42] <watt> His Noodly Appendage would be pleased if one were to show up to an interview in full pirate regalia
[15:59:39] <pupnik> stinking of rum
[16:03:52] <pupnik> you interested in working for a game house?
[16:05:10] <watt> Not particularly.
[16:05:20] <watt> It's just interesting to me.
[16:57:20] <pupnik> "I do my unixy things with NEXTSTEP" - John Carmack (1995)
[17:56:42] <-- Mrrrr has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[18:14:35] <watt> indeed he do. " I don’t personally develop on linux, because I do my unixy things with NEXTSTEP, but I have a lot of technical respect for it."
[18:16:10] <watt> Neat. listed as 1997 on this page: http://www.rmitz.org/carmack.on.operating.systems.html
[18:18:16] <watt> but alas. Ancient history.
[18:24:02] <pupnik> people tell me Osx is a worthy successor
[18:24:18] <pupnik> display postscript and eps was pretty cool though
[18:24:22] <watt> My guess would be that he does his unixy things on OS X now.... but one can never be too sure (he did demo Tech 5 on a mac, but that may not have much to do with anything)
[18:24:55] <pupnik> mhm... remember that screen dripping down in doom? i was the first guy to implement that effect on the NeXT :)
[18:25:19] <pupnik> minor claim to fame
[20:00:17] --> Mrrrr has joined #pentagram
[21:56:35] <watt> ............ well, that new to me.... gcc allows case ranges on switch statements
[21:56:43] <watt> case 2 ... 10: works
[21:57:10] <watt> I did not know that. Is it a standard C thing?
[22:11:18] <-- watt has left IRC ()
[22:14:18] * pupnik 's mind is completely blown by 'descent in 4kb'
[22:14:22] <pupnik> The Omniscent 4K Intro is a demo (using only 4K bytes of disc space) that contains a complete 6DOF engine ala descent from Dirk Kueppers ( kueppers@informatik.uni-koblenz.de ) ftp://ftp.scene.org/mirrors/hornet/demos/1997/s/snc_omna.zip
[22:14:56] <pupnik> plus data and gfx
[22:25:09] <Mrrrr> heh
[22:25:18] <Mrrrr> yeah I watch a lot of the demoscene stuff
[22:33:13] <pupnik> fuck
