[02:34:57] --- Marzo_away is now known as Marzo
[02:35:18] <Marzo> Heh
[02:36:15] <Marzo> There is a post in the Exult Phorum which I am struggling not to reply with a 'Reduce cofee intake, please'
[02:37:48] <woundeddragon> LOL
[02:38:31] <Marzo> But I feel it would be too close to starting a flamewar
[02:38:38] <Marzo> Besides, the guy has a point
[02:39:31] <woundeddragon> What'd he say?
[02:40:05] <Marzo> He took issue about me saying that it should be 'reasonably obvious' that Exult is portable
[02:40:35] <woundeddragon> It is reasonably obvious.
[02:40:44] <woundeddragon> If I can figure it out, so can you!
[02:40:45] <Marzo> I know
[02:40:45] <woundeddragon> :D
[02:41:02] <Marzo> But it was too much to say
[02:41:26] <Marzo> In any case, he got really pissed by that remark
[02:41:46] <woundeddragon> I see.
[02:41:49] <Marzo> He posted not once, but twice to complain about it
[02:42:03] <woundeddragon> I will post a comment when I have a free moment.
[02:42:19] <woundeddragon> Im a mediator on Wikipedia so maybe just maybe I can smack some sense into him.
[02:42:33] <Marzo> I am trying to come up with something which will not add fuel to the fire
[02:42:39] <Marzo> But it is not easy
[02:43:18] <Marzo> (too much latin blood)
[02:43:35] <woundeddragon> Well if you run your response by me before you post I can offer imrprovements if I can think of any.
[02:43:35] <Marzo> I can only imagine how hard the life of a mediator must be...
[02:44:04] <Marzo> That is more or less the problem -- the best I've got so far was the coffee remark
[02:44:10] <Marzo> :-)
[02:44:42] <woundeddragon> Heh.
[02:45:02] <woundeddragon> Being a mediator isn't terribly hard for the diplomatic, as long as you do NOT expect to be thanked for it.
[02:46:00] <Marzo> The trouble is that I am *not* diplomatic
[02:46:07] <woundeddragon> :)
[02:46:21] <Marzo> My idea of diplomacy is to say what I mean, which can lead to problems
[02:46:38] <woundeddragon> Yeppers.
[02:47:09] <Marzo> For example, another thing which I was thinking of writing -- but which I decided against -- was to point out that a week after I found out about Exult, I had placed it in a USB stick and played a bit with it
[02:47:44] <Marzo> But then again, I am a geek -- and geeks do strange things like read the documentation and experiment with new toys
[02:48:03] <woundeddragon> Yes.
[02:48:05] <woundeddragon> We do.
[02:48:46] <Marzo> I remember having a blast reading a 'how to ask intelligent questions' guide from the .sig of a DOSBox developer
[02:49:11] <Marzo> I think I have the URL somewhere
[02:49:21] <Marzo> Ah, found it - http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
[02:49:29] <woundeddragon> LOL
[03:46:11] <Marzo> I am off to bed
[03:46:14] <Marzo> Good night
[03:46:31] <woundeddragon> Sleep well, Avatar.
