[09:31:42] <wjp> hi
[09:35:14] <Colourless> hiya
[09:36:25] <Colourless> moving tomorrow i am... to somewhere that has like *no internet access.... *where no means best is isdn
[09:37:11] <wjp> staying in Adelaide or moving to another city?
[09:37:31] <Colourless> moving out of adelaide
[09:38:17] <Colourless> i think i'll survive on dual isdn :-)
[09:38:25] <wjp> :-)
[09:39:44] <wjp> what are you going to be doing afterwards? new job, studies?
[09:41:09] --> RumpledElf has joined #pentagram
[09:41:17] * RumpledElf pokes Colourless in the ribs with a 2x4
[09:41:26] <Colourless> hey
[09:41:28] <wjp> oooh, that looks painful :-)
[09:41:32] <RumpledElf> has this boy not been telling you all what he is doing?
[09:41:33] <RumpledElf> for shame!
[09:42:00] <Colourless> you are the one to tells everyone everything
[09:42:22] * RumpledElf is the marketing director, and you are the ... er ... technical coding type person
[09:42:32] <RumpledElf> anyway ... http://restlessworld.hidden-waters.com
[09:43:07] <Colourless> crazy idea... lets try making an online rpg...
[09:44:42] <Colourless> question of course is, can we do it with only 2 people... we think we can... so we're trying to do it
[09:44:48] <wjp> RumpledElf: hm, just a random guess, but were you a colourfull giraffe 8 months ago? :-)
[09:45:02] <RumpledElf> something like that :)
[09:45:45] <RumpledElf> did you just do a random grep through your logs on my ident, or do you have a very good memory?
[09:46:04] * Colourless recalls big private discussion about him
[09:47:49] <wjp> I just did a targeted grep to confirm my memory :-)
[09:48:21] * Colourless snickers
[09:49:12] <RumpledElf> so yeah, we're off to the outback this weekend to write a mmorpg in a town where there's probably only 3 or 4 people that actually own computers
[09:49:55] <Colourless> not an ideal location, but it's cheap :-)
[09:50:38] * Darke2 looks at website. Cool. Not that I'm into MMORPGs, but cool none the less. *grin*
[09:50:50] <Colourless> damn managed to get you to speak
[09:51:17] <Colourless> but i did bring a girl into this channel so thats something
[09:51:37] <RumpledElf> girl?
[09:51:40] * RumpledElf looks around
[09:52:23] * Darke2 was scarily enough, digging through some older pentagram code of his. His muse decided to get interested in hacking on some decompilation things again, but he doesn't like the look of what he's looking at. *shudder* He wrote *that* code?! Ewww!
[09:53:19] <Colourless> hey it still worked didn't it?
[09:53:31] <wjp> hey Darke :-)
[09:54:10] * Darke2 aiees! A girl! Nooooo! With most of the other channels he hides on he's almost the only guy, this was one of his few hiding places! His bastion of maleness has been sullied! How will he cope?! *shudderhide!*
[09:54:25] <wjp> s/maleness/rabbitness/
[09:54:49] <RumpledElf> irc channels with mostly girls ... never heard of em.
[09:55:04] <Colourless> yes girl *points to person sitting in corner of this bad picture taken the other day* http://www.users.on.net/~triforce/IMGP2860.JPG
[09:55:04] <Darke2> Male rabbitness! Err... I think so. *checks himself* Yup!
[09:55:50] <Darke2> RumpledElf: Well, one irc channel, and a couple of other assorted chat rooms on mucks and stuff. *grin*
[09:55:52] <Colourless> so RumpledElf wanted to know why the topic of the channel is spoon!
[09:56:03] <Colourless> i told her it's always been spoon
[09:56:09] <wjp> hm, my memory isn't _that_ good :-)
[09:56:19] <Darke2> Because the /topic of #exult was "No spoon", so #pentagram of course had to be spoon.
[09:56:42] <Colourless> wasn't the topic of #exult set to be No Spoon because the #pentagram one was spoon
[09:56:53] <Colourless> do we have a circular dependency?
[09:57:19] <Darke2> Possibly. I thought it was the other way around though, but I'm pretty sure I set both, but then again I'm too lazy to check. *grin*
[09:58:15] <RumpledElf> if you had more channels you could have other pieces of cutlery
[09:58:16] <Darke2> Though I must admit I'm impressed that the genius of my topic selection hasn't been challenged for almost two years. *grin*
[09:58:17] <wjp> (browsing website); wow, you've got a lot of backstory worked out
[09:58:45] * Darke2 is tempted to change it to something else of Feb 15th, just for a difference. *grin*
[09:58:50] <RumpledElf> as in the really long page I wrote this morning after a discussion during a long car drive a few weeks ago? yes :)
[10:00:10] <wjp> hehe :-)
[10:00:44] <RumpledElf> amazing what you come up with on these long drives. Came up with our entire quest system on one
[10:01:01] <Colourless> http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/pentagramlog.php?log=15Feb2004
[10:01:11] <Colourless> it was changed... and there is no obvious reason why...
[10:02:23] <Darke2> http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/exultlog.php?log=15Feb2004 That's why you swap to the exult log of the same day and the reason is obvious. *grin*
[10:02:53] <wjp> ah ha, so we have a spoon here on Colourless' request
[10:02:54] <Colourless> i know...
[10:03:19] <Colourless> hmm.
[10:03:40] <Colourless> of course now #exult has a topic..
[10:03:45] * Darke2 thinks it does worry himself a little when he rereads some old stuff written by him, and he thinks that he, himself, really is quite odd.
[10:04:14] <RumpledElf> somewhere, someone is logging what I type in irc and its going to come back to haunt me one day
[10:04:35] * exultbot looks innocent
[10:05:25] <Colourless> #exults topic has been set from http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/exultlog.php?log=22Feb2005
[10:05:34] <Colourless> [23:19:30] --- wjp has changed the topic to: There *is* a topic!
[10:05:34] <Colourless> [23:19:45] <wjp> there; good for another year ;-)
[10:05:49] <RumpledElf> got just over a month until you need a new one then
[10:07:00] <Darke2> RumpledElf: Don't worry. Or alternately worry lots. Colourless is veryvery good at finding quotes from me to cause great embarrisment years onwards (yes, I recently looked though pentagram's quotes again). *grin*
[10:07:26] * Colourless looks at his to be put in the pentagram quotes file
[10:09:38] <Colourless> re this: [20:22] * Darke2 was scarily enough, digging through some older pentagram code of his. His muse decided to get interested in hacking on some decompilation things again, but he doesn't like the look of what he's looking at. *shudder* He wrote *that* code?! Ewww!
[10:09:47] <Colourless> i found this in the quotes:
[10:09:47] <Colourless> It'll get the Pentagram Pathetic Programming(tm) award for the rest of the decade
[10:09:47] <Colourless> (Darke considering if he should or shouldn't do something)
[10:09:58] * Darke2 grumbles. Colourless still has a Top Secret Greatly Evil Quote from this bunny to be put in the quotes file from aeons back. Thankfully the dragon has either forgotten it, misplaced it, or gotten less evil in the interim.
[10:10:05] * Darke2 gahs!
[10:10:24] <RumpledElf> he came up chaotic neutral on an alignment test. I fear its the latter.
[10:10:45] <Darke2> Honestly, that really does describe the core loop of that fold program I wrote. *grin*
[10:10:56] <Darke2> RumpledElf: Heh.
[10:11:36] <Colourless> fold... one of those bits of pentagram that i don't ever actually attempt to compile since i don't want to have to fix anything that doesn't compile
[10:12:42] <Colourless> i think you're lucky bunny, i cant remember where the quote is... though a bit of time spent and i'll find it in my irc logs... all 5 years of them...
[10:18:02] * Darke2 pokepokepokes his logs. Actually it seems quite a bit more difficult then he thought to find the quote. *grin*
[10:18:35] <Colourless> :-)
[10:21:15] * Darke2 ahhas! And rediscovers it! Though he's certainly not going to let the Chaotic Neutral dragon find it any easier, it'd only help him on his quest for an Evil(tm) alignment.
[10:23:18] <Colourless> well time to go and do some more packing up... including the adsl modem... see ya in a few days time... on what telstra classes as 'broadband' but the rest of the civilized world does not
[10:23:22] <RumpledElf> speaking of evil
[10:23:28] <-- RumpledElf has left IRC ("packing and harry potter time")
[10:23:42] * Colourless sighs 20mbps to 128kbps...
[10:23:42] <wjp> bye
[10:23:47] <Darke2> Bye! Have fun! *grin*
[10:23:50] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("casts improved invisibility")
[10:24:16] <wjp> my ADSL got upgraded to 6mbit last month (from 3) :-)
[10:25:14] <Darke2> Most of .au is stuck on a max of 1.5mbit. There's a few areas which have been upgraded to adsl2, so are getting 8-20mbit (20 of course only if you're relatively near the exchange).
[10:25:36] <Darke2> Of course we'll have to chuckle evily when poor Colourless returns on such a slow line. *grin*
