00:35:17 <cheater__> !topic http://wtpl.heroku.com/
00:38:36 <zzo38> Some people say that sports prediction from horoscope works better than personal prediction from horoscope. What is your opinion on these matters?
00:39:16 <ion> 0 = 0
00:39:48 <zzo38> ion: True, but too simple.
00:40:14 <zzo38> I am skeptical but can think of two possible reasons which can allow it to work sometimes.
00:40:27 <zzo38> (I am not counting such things as fluke)
00:42:07 <ion> Some people say that sports prediction from the variation of latency in pinging google.com works better than personal prediction from that.
00:43:49 <zzo38> The two reasons I am think of: (1) psychological effect (such as superstitious people's belief in such things), and (2) lighting conditions (considering house positions on horoscopes).
00:44:05 -!- DHeadshot has joined.
00:45:29 <zzo38> Now what will you answer to this? (Simply saying it is good or it is bad, is not the good answer; you must critical thinking too)
00:52:27 <ais523> zzo38: I think the position of the Sun might potentially matter, but the positions of other heavenly bodies are unlikely to be even visible during the game
00:52:56 <zzo38> ais523: True. About lighting conditions, yes it is the Sun which I was refering to.
00:53:37 <ais523> and directly looking at the time and date would be more direct than going via horoscope
00:54:21 <zzo38> ais523: Sunrise/sunset and so on change for different days and different locations, there are also timezones which are not always same as solar time, and then there is daylight saving time, etc
00:54:31 <ais523> indeed
00:54:34 <ais523> I meant true local time
00:54:37 <ais523> not local time from timezone
00:54:45 <zzo38> OK
00:55:08 <ais523> timezones are only approximations intended to standardise time across a country, so that people a long way from each other can communicate about time
00:55:14 <ais523> they came about when railways became popular
00:55:26 <ais523> before then, long-distance communication and travel wasn't fast enough for the time differences to matter
00:55:30 <ais523> but everyone needed to agree on train times
00:56:13 <zzo38> OK, I didn't know that but yes it seem good
00:56:25 <ion> To predict anything about a game based on the position of the Sun, you’ll certainly need the angle of the playfield relative to the Sun as input as well.
00:59:35 <ais523> ion: aren't playfields usually flat?
00:59:42 <ais523> but you'd need to know latitude and longitude and altitude
00:59:50 <ais523> to calculate the angle
01:05:17 <ion> The sun will potentially shine more in the eyes of one team than the other, or perhaps illuminate both equally from the side.
01:05:18 <zzo38> It may help also to know rules of the game.
01:05:31 <zzo38> ion: Yes those are my thoughts too.
01:05:51 <ion> So you can’t make predictions just based on “horoscopes” that don’t take stuff like that into account.
01:06:59 <zzo38> A horoscope chart will include the houses, showing you the ascendant and midheaven and so on. You need to know the location and the date/time to calculate house positions.
01:07:14 <cheater__> lol @ linus https://github.com/torvalds/linux/pull/17#issuecomment-5654674
01:07:32 <zzo38> Of course you need to take things into account; a raw horoscope chart will simply tell you the positions and aspects.
01:11:34 <zzo38> So that is lighting conditions; the Mars and other planets are extremely unlikely to affect such things. But, psychological effect of people believing in superstitious things based on these planets may effect decisions of some superstitious players.
01:16:37 <zzo38> Another thing which can potentially affect lighting conditions is a solar eclipse. There are three objects on the horoscope related to eclipses: the Sun, the Moon, and the North Node. I have heard the story of a king who was frightened to death by a solar eclipse. This is unlikely to happen today, but eclipses can still happen.

05:09:44 <pikhq> Idea.

05:09:49 <pikhq> I call it "Assimilating Sliver"
05:10:14 <Madoka-Kaname> Borg Sliver
05:10:43 <pikhq> Also, "Creature - Eldrazi Sliver" :)
05:11:02 <Madoka-Kaname> No.
05:11:03 <Madoka-Kaname> Just no.
05:11:22 <pikhq> Well, it'd happen if you played Assimilating Sliver.

05:39:01 <pikhq> And I am going to be upset if they screw up Return to Ravnica...

05:44:17 <ais523> doing Ravnica again? must be running out of ideas :)
05:44:32 <ais523> I did enjoy Ravnica, although Time Spiral is still my favourite block
05:45:22 <pikhq> Either it'll suck or it'll be awesome. I don't see it going in between.
05:45:40 <pikhq> And, yeah, Time Spiral was glorious.
05:53:50 <ais523> apparently it was unpopular sales-wise, though
05:53:55 <ais523> compared to the sets around it
05:54:54 <oklopol> i had a dream that satan worshippers and some sort of vampire enthusiasts were holding a joint meeting, and the vampire dudes were reading stories from their vampire bible (presumably written by charlaine harris)
05:56:51 <zzo38> I like the puzzle games for Magic: the Gathering, and figuring out reactions between existing and possible card texts, and playing in Limited tournaments
05:58:13 <oklopol> for some reason, the vampire dudes had a crusifix from which they drank blood (and occasionally it was wine) and another crusifix that played scary music.
06:00:23 <pikhq> ais523: Well, it did come between Ravnica and Lorwyn.
06:00:37 <ais523> pikhq: Lorwyn's the reason I stopped playing Magic
06:00:43 <pikhq> And, unfortunately, as a nostalgia set it would have somewhat less general appeal.
06:00:53 <ais523> and I had nothing to be nostalgic about, I started with Ninth Edition
06:01:14 <pikhq> Still, Time Spiral was a delightful set, design-wise.
06:01:17 <ais523> I just liked it mechanically
06:03:23 <pikhq> Also, why did *Lorwyn* make you stop playing Magic?
06:03:36 <ais523> didn't like the flavour, didn't like the mechanics, didn't like the focus on creatures
06:03:49 <pikhq> So... Not a big tribal fan?
06:04:04 <ais523> I like Slivers, but I don't like tribal for the sake of tribal
06:04:55 <pikhq> Surprised it wasn't Shards that did it. (seriously, *six fucking years* of multicolor in Standard?)
06:05:06 <ais523> shards just persuaded me not to come back :)
06:09:07 <ais523> I think the focus on creatures recently has turned me off Magic somewhat
06:11:50 <pikhq> Ah, you're one of those people that does things like break Tamiyo. :P http://magiccards.info/avr/en/79.html
06:12:19 -!- asiekierka has quit (Quit: Wychodzi).
06:12:31 <ais523> oh, I was wrong, it was /planeswalkers/ that turned me off Magic
06:12:35 <ais523> forgot those existed, bleh
06:13:10 <ais523> only reason I wasn't raging during Future Sight was that I assumed that Tarmogoyf's flavour text was a joke
06:13:14 <ais523> (which it could have been, quite easily)
06:14:08 <ais523> huh, Avacyn Restored is a large? I assumed it was a small set
06:14:10 <pikhq> If it makes you feel better, most planeswalkers are little more than a Lightning Bolt sink.
06:14:18 <pikhq> Yeah, it was a weird block-ending large set.
06:15:06 <ais523> and planeswalkers being a lightning bolt sink ties into why I don't like creatures so much
06:15:27 <ais523> I don't mind simple creatures, but I prefer the creatures to sit there on the battlefield and do, at most, combat tricks
06:16:04 <ais523> while the players maneouver around them with their instants and sorceries and enchantments trying to give one side the advantage over the other, either by gaining combat advantage with creatures, or directly
06:16:54 <pikhq> And they've been making creatures do more largely in hopes of making tournament decks actually run creatures.
06:17:13 <pikhq> Kinda-sorta worked.
06:17:32 <pikhq> Though the recent Pro Tour winning deck only ran any creatures in sideboard.
06:17:47 <pikhq> Just a giant pile of miracle spells and cantrips.
06:18:06 <ais523> haha :)
06:18:18 <ais523> purpose of creatures is to stop you dying to red
06:18:48 <Sgeo> UPDATE, UPDATE, give me your answer do
06:18:55 <monqy> hi
06:19:21 <ais523> or even white or green, arguably, but the strategy's most commonly seen in red
06:19:40 <ais523> (that of just putting down lots of cheap creatures early and overrunning the opponent before they can set up whatever they were going to do)
06:19:57 <pikhq> Planeswalkers end up having very different feel to me in formats where Doubling Season is legal.
06:20:22 <pikhq> Tamiyo now reads "3{U}{U}: You get an emblem with "You have no maximum hand size" and "Whenever a card is put into your graveyard from anywhere, you may return it to your hand.""
06:20:27 <pikhq> :)
06:20:36 <Sgeo> pikhq, do you play MtG online, and if so, where and how?
06:20:45 <pikhq> Sgeo: I play MtG IRL.
06:21:34 <ais523> to play it online "officially", you have to pay as much money as it'd cost to get the cards otherwise
06:21:40 <ais523> pikhq: *two emblems :)
06:21:49 <ais523> (I know it doesn't work on emblems, but it /should/)
06:21:56 <Sgeo> ais523, and thus, no desire on my part to play MtGO
06:21:59 -!- Patashu has joined.
06:22:00 <ais523> indeed
06:22:03 <ais523> nor mine
06:22:12 <Sgeo> Do people like Cockatrice?
06:22:18 <ais523> the physical cards are actually worth something for the art design, IMO, apart from the game (although not as much as they cost)
06:22:36 <zzo38> I happen to dislike many of the rules in Magic: the Gathering
06:22:55 <zzo38> I also prefer Limited format games over Constructed
06:25:40 <zzo38> I don't think they need emblems, tribals, state-based effects causing tokens to cease to exist, rule that a land card cannot be played as its other types, etc. There are better ways to write the rules to avoid these things.
06:26:19 <ion> “A lot of people still confuse Austria and Australia, I hope this makes it clear.” https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-OE9rTUfHE8k/T6_yazqUw0I/AAAAAAAAA8I/jvMOuw0z_tA/w497-h373/Jda6h.jpg
06:35:44 <zzo38> We can make up the new game, based on Magic: the Gathering but with differences, including that you do not have to purchase the cards (you can also print them out or write them out, or play by computer; you don't have to pay). As well as making the standard game Limited instead of Constructed.
06:41:26 <Sgeo> Well, there's a reason for the whole purchasing the cards thing: So WotC makes money
06:59:00 <zzo38> Yes, I understand. But, we make up new game it is differ, not using the old cards therefore not using old compatibility rules either. Someone can sell cards if they want to but is not required to play game. Or you can write puzzle-game too. But rules are many differences nevertheless.
07:17:17 <pikhq> zzo38: Of the tournament formats, Limited is quite a lot better IMO.
07:17:42 <pikhq> It's both more fun and a much better test of skill than Constructed.
07:18:09 <pikhq> Not to mention it completely avoids rich-kid syndrome.
07:18:38 <pikhq> Which is by far the worst part of Magic.
07:18:45 <ais523> I actually prefer Constructed, especially when I'm beating the world's best decks with ones that I can afford
07:19:09 <ais523> sometimes with flukes, but it's still amusing
07:19:49 <pikhq> I tend to do vintage casual constructed (okay, so most of my decks are modern too, because I'm cheap. :P)
07:20:25 <pikhq> Really, Magic is at its best in casual play...
07:22:25 <pikhq> Friggin' rarity-directly-mapping-to-usefulness.
07:23:23 <pikhq> It might be good business, but it also warps the game into a contest of money.
07:30:04 <zzo38> pikhq: And that kind of contest about money is one things I dislike about it. And your thing you describe also why Limited is better I agree that Limited is better in that (and other) way.
07:44:47 <ais523> pikhq: rarity mapping to usefulness is partly to accommodate Limited by making drafting first-picks more important
07:45:09 <ais523> but it might be more interesting the other way, where cards only useful in Constructed are placed at rare to avoid them impinging on Limited too much
07:47:10 -!- Taneb has joined.
07:47:33 <zzo38> ais523: I agree with you on that; I do think that setting the rarity of cards in that way might improve the game (it could be partially tried to see what happen, I suppose).
07:47:46 <Taneb> Hello
07:48:25 <ais523> the problem with the rarities at the moment is mythic, really
07:49:07 <ais523> they're trying to make exciting cards powerful, but also tend to put exciting cards at mythic (so that getting them is /more/ exciting, and to make booster packs more valuable because people will have to open more of them to get single cards that they can sell on to people who want them)
07:50:11 <zzo38> Yes these are the many problems with the game, relating to the cards. There are problems with the rules too, but there are also problems with the cards like you are describing.
07:51:45 <pikhq> ais523: Agreed, strongly. Also, I feel like rarity should be more a function of how general a card is. Something like Birds of Paradise should be common, not rare.
07:52:03 <ais523> pikhq: currently specific cards are consistently placed at uncommon
07:52:24 <ais523> which sort-of makes sense for limited, because a specific card can be drafted around
07:52:41 <ais523> especially if it's specific and also one of the set's main mechanics
07:52:49 <pikhq> Yeah... General is common or rare, specific is uncommon, and anything "big" is rare, and anything awesome is mythic rare.
07:53:40 <pikhq> Cavern of Souls should not be rare.
07:53:48 <pikhq> http://magiccards.info/avr/en/226.html BTW
07:53:54 <ais523> what about One with Nothing? people hated that being rare
07:54:01 <ais523> I guess if all rares were like that it wouldn't matter
07:54:23 <pikhq> If it's a card that nearly every deck wants, it shouldn't be friggin' rare.
07:58:12 <ais523> common or uncommon, in your opinion?
07:58:25 <ais523> arguably it's narrow, but it's so customizably narrow it fits into most decks
07:58:46 <ais523> (which is apparently deliberate; apparently, they needed to nerf Mana Leak due to a mistake in balancing Snapcaster Mage)
07:58:49 <pikhq> One with Nothing, depends on what the rest of the set's doing.
07:59:04 <pikhq> Cavern of Souls? Common.
07:59:05 <zzo38> Well, if you manage to get One with Nothing in your deck for some reason such as drafting and so on, then, if it is in your hand, and then it is useful to you then please play this card.
08:00:09 <pikhq> It's something you'll be happy to play in any deck that happens to weigh towards a single creature type.
08:00:26 <pikhq> Which even in the absence of specific tribal effects, is reasonably common.
08:00:31 <ais523> I guess another example is dual land, which should be common (but putting it at rare is obviously better for revenue)
08:00:51 <pikhq> Dual lands are really good examples of this.
08:01:19 <pikhq> If I am playing with two colors, I want duals out the wazoo. I want to pretend duals are basic lands.
08:02:13 <pikhq> $100 *mana bases* are a fucking joke.
08:02:19 <ais523> right
08:02:29 <ais523> my best deck is five-color combo
08:02:37 <ais523> and it basically contains all the dual lands I own
08:02:55 <pikhq> That *in specific* presents a gigantic barrier to entry for tournaments.
08:02:57 <ais523> (I move them between decks when I need them, obviously, rather than having separate lands for separate decks)
08:04:07 <pikhq> It's plausible that by doing this WotC could make *more* money, actually...
08:04:16 <pikhq> By having more people play and more people play in tournaments.
08:04:47 <pikhq> I have a sneaking suspicion the rarity issues end up driving people off the game.
08:05:09 <zzo38> Make Limited the standard game.
08:06:28 <ais523> limited is even worse, then you have to buy booster packs every game you play
08:07:33 <pikhq> And mythics only make it worse, really: I can't realistically play planeswalkers without either paying through the nose for a playset or buying *several boxes*? That's just shitty.
08:09:20 <zzo38> ais523: But Limited is a better game anyways. Perhaps if you can put the cards back in the shuffle and make up random packs at the tournament, do not need to purchase (and print!) new cards every time.
08:09:47 <ais523> even when not worrying about the cost, I prefer Constructed, but perhaps that's more to do with the sort of games I like
08:10:59 <zzo38> I prefer Limited regardless of cost, but you play how you prefer.
08:11:11 <pikhq> ais523: My preference for limited is almost exclusively due to balance.
08:12:39 <pikhq> The game's balanced around either limited or assuming everyone has $500 a block to blow.
08:12:46 <pikhq> s/block/set/
08:13:50 <pikhq> Or, well, assuming everyone involved is on an equal financial footing, really.
08:14:06 <pikhq> Black Lotus is balanced if everybody's got one. :P

08:20:28 <ais523> mana leak?
08:20:54 <ais523> oblivion ring (is that common?)?
08:21:10 <pikhq> Oblivion ring got bumped to uncommon. Because... ?
08:21:22 <pikhq> Got a friend who can, with a god hand, drop that sucker turn 2.
08:21:24 <ais523> it was common once, though
08:22:21 <ais523> actually, I think white has quite a few exilers at common
08:22:38 <pikhq> Tinker, BTW, is obscenity.
08:22:40 <ais523> admittedly, you're probably going to be needing to play blue or white to deal with it at common, though

08:27:20 <pikhq> (I assume you didn't mean force of will?)
08:27:33 <ais523> might have got the wrong name
08:27:37 <ais523> counterspell costing pitch two
08:27:48 <pikhq> Guess it's similar at least.
08:28:03 <pikhq> Force of Will is counterspell costing 1 life and exile 1 blue card.
08:28:14 <ais523> oh, got the right name, wrong effect
08:28:19 <ais523> pitch 1 and 1 life is obviously better
08:28:30 <ais523> and so would obviously be used instead
08:28:34 <ais523> I can believe it's $50
08:28:41 <pikhq> For "heavily played" no less.
08:29:19 <pikhq> Also, recommending counterspells as a solution doesn't help with someone who also thinks counterspells are overpowered. :P
08:30:39 <ais523> it's natural that overpowered things would be necessary to deal with other overpowered things :)
08:30:47 <ais523> arguably, it's card draw that's overpowered rather than counterspells
08:30:54 <ais523> counterspells don't really work without a draw engine backing them up
08:31:30 <pikhq> I also happen to think that forms of draw effects should be in all colors...
08:32:12 <ais523> rather than just red and blue? (and red isn't allowed to get card advantage from it unless its hand is empty)
08:32:26 <pikhq> Obviously, not doable without basically rebalancing every single part of the game though. (elves with *card draw*? Holy fuck.)
08:32:29 <pikhq> Yeah.

11:54:52 <cheater__> kmc: just made some fish dish
11:54:54 <cheater__> pish tosh
11:55:57 <kmc> what kind of fish
11:58:56 <cheater__> alaska salmon
11:58:58 <cheater__> nothing fancy
11:59:04 <cheater__> mechanically separated
11:59:18 <cheater__> it was on promotion (is that what you say?)
12:00:04 <cheater__> i tried some fancy spices today
12:01:06 <cheater__> atlantic grain salt with a grinder, lime juice (again), lemon peppa, galgant, and a nice 3 pepper mix
12:01:10 <cheater__> not all at once
12:01:43 <cheater__> i did salt on all, then tried lemon peppa several times with and without galgant, and then tried the pepper.
12:01:50 <cheater__> lemon peppa is very spicy.
12:02:00 <cheater__> i expected it to be more.. lemony.

12:02:31 <cheater__> galgant or lemon peppa?
12:02:48 <kmc> orange-flavour olive oil
12:02:51 -!- Taneb has left ("Leaving").
12:02:58 <cheater__> oh yeah you get lots of different flavours
12:03:03 <cheater__> here's a tip
12:03:12 <cheater__> lemon or vanilla ice cream with lemon olive oil
12:03:19 <kmc> galgant is like ginger right?
12:03:20 <cheater__> tru story
12:03:31 <cheater__> yeah but it's h4wt3r
12:03:37 <kmc> i think it's called galangal in english
12:03:51 <cheater__> yea
12:04:00 <cheater__> i have seen that name
12:04:31 <cheater__> have you ever had any fresh galangal?
12:04:39 <cheater__> dude. that is fucking insane
12:04:46 <cheater__> i've never eaten anything spicier
12:04:47 <kmc> i haven't
12:04:51 <cheater__> it's like
12:05:05 <cheater__> you take this tiny piece, like 0.5 cm on the side
12:05:12 <cheater__> and you chew on it
12:05:16 <cheater__> and you don't feel anything
12:05:23 <cheater__> then it hits you
12:05:38 <cheater__> and it's like, super-concentrated ginger
12:05:48 <cheater__> you like spicy stuff you gotta try it
12:06:14 <kmc> i will
12:06:18 <cheater__> also it may only have been the one i've had but the taste was much more bitter
12:06:21 <cheater__> like they shoved aspirin in it
12:06:23 <kmc> there's an indian grocery down the street
12:06:25 <kmc> they might have it
12:06:39 <cheater__> yea
12:07:02 <kmc> i guess it's from southeast asia
12:07:07 <kmc> i should find a thai grocery, that would be baller
12:07:11 <cheater__> do they speak rike rear indian immiglants
12:07:14 <kmc> "Polish vodka Zoladkowa Gorzka is flavoured with galanga."
12:07:21 <cheater__> lol
12:07:23 <cheater__> wtf
12:07:41 <cheater__> that vodka is actually the secret tip
12:07:43 <cheater__> like
12:07:45 <kmc> "The secret recipe includes, among others: wormwood, gentian root, pepper, and galangal."
12:07:52 <kmc> this sounds like it would taste like satan's own asshole
12:08:01 <cheater__> for students and shit
12:08:06 <cheater__> it's not too expensive but it kicks well and doesn't taste of potatos or any other cheap vodka taste
12:08:24 <cheater__> speaking of satan's own asshole
12:08:31 <cheater__> i have a tip for you for a drink that you'll love
12:08:37 <cheater__> you will love it cause it has tobasco on it
12:08:40 <cheater__> in
12:09:14 <cheater__> you need vodka, tabasco, and raspberry sirup (the kind you make soft drinks out of, not the one for topping ice cream)
12:09:38 <cheater__> you take a small shot glass, fill it 1/3 with the sirup
12:09:53 <cheater__> then you fill the rest with vodka slowly so as not to disturb the sirup
12:10:08 <cheater__> once that's in you add a drop of tobasco, it hovers nicely in a sphere above the sirup
12:10:10 <cheater__> looks cool
12:10:21 <cheater__> and is said to be really good for parties
12:10:47 <cheater__> i served it on several birthdays and people loved it
12:11:14 <cheater__> u gotta try it
12:11:28 <cheater__> possibly with "Polish vodka Zoladkowa Gorzka"
12:11:40 <cheater__> oh in case you're wondering what the name means
12:11:50 <cheater__> it translates to "stomach vodka, bitter"
12:11:57 <cheater__> i never understood that.
12:12:14 <cheater__> i think they make it by fermenting goat stomachs or something.
12:12:21 <cheater__> probably not though.
12:14:11 <cheater__> Greater galangal is native to Java. It is widely used in Indonesia and Malaysia as a food flavouring and spice. Lesser galangal is native to China, growing mainly on the southeast coast. It is also grown in India and the rest of South East Asia. Although barely used in Europe today, both galangals were formerly imported in great quantity, as medicine and spice.
12:14:42 <cheater__> fuck
12:14:49 <cheater__> there are people who snuff galangal
12:14:51 <kmc> i brewed ginger beer a few times
12:14:55 <cheater__> that's gotta be unhealthy
12:14:55 <kmc> i wonder if you could make galangal beer
12:15:00 <cheater__> i bet you could
12:15:07 <cheater__> after all it's not like real beer is it
12:15:14 <kmc> not really
12:15:38 <cheater__> so kmc my next project might be with the yii php web framework
12:15:45 <cheater__> try to pronounce it
12:15:47 <cheater__> "yii"
12:16:15 <kmc> you just like make a strong ginger tea, put sugar and yeast in, and let it sit a couple of days
12:16:29 <cheater__> haha
12:16:40 <cheater__> actually sounds like disgusting shit
12:16:42 <kmc> it will produce a bit of alcohol but it gets un-tasty before it hits typical beer abv
12:16:55 <cheater__> i could never drink alcohol, it really dejects me
12:17:13 <kmc> why yii php
12:17:22 <cheater__> because i can get a job
12:17:25 <cheater__> and i need the money
12:17:39 <cheater__> i'll suck dick for nuggets
12:20:40 <cheater__> not everyone has hit it big with ksplorifice like you have kmc
12:20:59 <cheater__> i'm just a pauper
12:22:52 <kmc> what kind of nuggets
12:22:54 <kmc> chicken?
12:23:07 <cheater__> any
12:23:10 <cheater__> even poop nuggets
12:23:50 <kmc> :(
12:23:51 <cheater__> but i was thinking of chicken nuggets, yes.
12:28:29 <cheater__> so apparently the galangal i have had was Greater Galangal
12:28:49 <cheater__> which is orange to brown
12:29:05 <cheater__> indians apparently only have lesser galangal, which is red
12:29:21 <cheater__> red to reddish brown

15:26:13 <itidus21> all the irc servers on earth?
15:26:17 <Taneb> And join #esoteric and complain about how now you don't know what software to use
15:26:20 <Taneb> itidus21, ALL OF THEM
15:28:12 <itidus21> ok i surrender! i have emulators, and lego wolfenstein, and some unused 3d modelling stuff,
15:28:36 <itidus21> i waste my life away like so many trailing periods..........
15:29:00 <Taneb> itidus21, get Dwarf Fortress
15:30:23 <itidus21> no no i had an evil idea about DF...
15:30:41 <Taneb> Then get Minecraft?
15:31:02 <itidus21> exactly.. the thought occured to me that DF could be rendered in voxels
15:31:22 <Phantom_Hoover> `quote 855
15:31:25 <Taneb> It could, quite easily.
15:31:25 <HackEgo> 855) <Phantom_Hoover> i once had a dream when i was told to look after some kittens but they were made of chocolate and i ate them :(
15:31:34 <Taneb> There are programs that do that

15:35:28 <itidus21> i dont understand DF proper.. but i do understand that it can be rendered :D

15:48:45 <Gregor> Boy I love how Freenode's host masking is basically useless.
15:49:38 <Phantom_Hoover> Hm?
15:49:57 <kmc> i hear you can set your client to authenticate to nickserv as you connect
15:50:24 <Gregor> Phantom_Hoover:
15:50:25 <Gregor> * Phantom_Hoover (~Phantom@cpc15-sgyl29-2-0-cust133.sgyl.cable.virginmedia.com) has joined #esoteric
15:50:25 <Gregor> * Phantom_Hoover has quit (Changing host)
15:50:25 <Gregor> * Phantom_Hoover (~Phantom@unaffiliated/phantom-hoover/x-3377486) has joined #esoteric
15:50:32 <Phantom_Hoover> Yeahno.
15:50:52 <Phantom_Hoover> That's just me setting the wrong fields in XChat, as kmc says.
15:51:21 <Phantom_Hoover> Hmm, I'm not sure that /is/ the problem.
15:51:54 <Gregor> The problem is that even if you set up the nickserv password in the client, there's no established handshake, so it can't wait for the response.
15:52:21 <Gregor> So if you have autojoin, there's a very high chance that you will join before NickServ has authenticated you, unless NickServ is atomic w.r.t. the rest of the network, which it typically is not.
16:02:23 <itidus21> Gregor: i am a big fan of akira toriyama and it is implied you are to some degree
16:02:45 <Gregor> That is one stretch of an implication, since I have no clue what/who you're talking about.
16:03:05 <Gregor> Presumably someone (?) related to the Dragon Ball series.
16:03:21 -!- zzo38 has joined.
16:03:51 <coppro> Gregor: as was mentioned, if you supply your nickserv password as the PASSWORD, then the cloak is applied immediately
16:04:23 <Gregor> Ahh, I didn't know Freenode accepted the nickserv password as the network password.
16:04:23 <ais523> coppro: I don't think so; I supply mine as the password, and it doesn't happen immediately enough
16:04:25 <Gregor> Makes sense I suppose.
16:04:31 <ais523> and I also /msg nickserv afterwards just to make sure
16:04:41 <ais523> [Notice] -NickServ- You are already logged in as ais523.
16:05:06 <coppro> ais523: that sounds wrong; it is supposed to supply the cloak before you are able to join any channels
16:05:21 <coppro> Gregor: Also, there is an established handshake
16:05:37 <coppro> mode +i
16:05:44 <zzo38> coppro: Then just don't join any channel before the NickServ message comes on. The amount of time it takes varies
16:06:50 -!- zzo38 has set topic: SPOILER ALERT: I die in the end | http://codu.org/logs/_esoteric.
16:06:55 <Taneb> If that thingy ever happens to me, tell me
16:07:16 <itidus21> Gregor: ahhh cool i see
16:07:23 <itidus21> ok ok.. false implication
16:07:42 <Gregor> <coppro> Gregor: Also, there is an established handshake // I mean established across all networks.
16:08:26 <zzo38> You can login to NickServ using the PASS command, but sometimes there may be a delay before NickServ does anything about it (I am unsure why).
16:12:16 <Gregor> Presumably it just passes it into the whole *Serv substrate, which is not atomic w.r.t. the rest of the network.
16:12:28 <Gregor> (It's essentially an agent, not a server component)
16:18:14 <itidus21> akira toriyama was behind the art and story of dragonball, but of course they always have uncredited assistants. he also did art for many video games: dragon quest, chrono trigger, tobal, blue dragon
16:24:17 <zzo38> itidus21: But it seem three of them are "dragon"

16:45:32 <itidus21> the methodology i have been trying is to fight convention, as if modern authors and artists had been swept out to sea by a riptide of convention
16:45:43 <itidus21> but i haven't been trying very hard
16:51:15 <Phantom_Hoover> You realise that having "fighting convention" as your entire creative vision inevitably just ends up with a piece of crap.

18:56:44 <zzo38> Well, in this case it is simply ordered, it is not a tree. But it does support skipping questions based on the answers to previous questions.

20:12:44 <cheater__> no i meant
20:13:02 <cheater__> maths are an eigenvector of esoteric

20:16:54 <oklopol> can you link something of theirs
20:17:05 <cheater__> it's ambient
20:17:12 <cheater__> electronic music
20:17:18 <cheater__> i suggest the album "substrata"
20:17:31 <oklopol> can you suggest a song, ambient isn't really my style
20:17:56 <cheater__> not really the whole cd needs to be heard to have the effect
20:17:57 <oklopol> if i like something with less than 10 notes a second, it's an anomaly
20:18:15 <cheater__> it's not that slow

20:19:14 <oklopol> why is that
20:20:57 <oklopol> also 10 notes per second is not _really_ a necessary condition. but fast music is usually more interesting.
