05:07 <Lucifer_arma> well, it is saturday night and *some* of us have lives :)
05:07 <GodTodd> say it ain't so!
05:08 <Lucifer_arma> it ain't so!
05:08 <GodTodd> see, i knew it wasn't true :)
05:08 <Lucifer_arma> you only think that.  how do you know I'm not lying?
05:09 <Lucifer_arma> so, I finally decided on a goatee, because the white hair is concentrated on my chin and the hair on my cheeks itches
05:09 <GodTodd> it's all in agreed perception...if i decide it's true then it is...for me at least :)
05:09 <GodTodd> yeah...ostensibly i have a goatee myself
05:10 <Fonkay> if i remembered what you looked like i'd tell you... but alas
05:11 <Fonkay> all i can remember is hair
05:11 -!- Van-hayes [n=Vanhayes@stjhnbsu83w-156034194125.nb.aliant.net] has joined #armagetron
05:12 <Fonkay> wb
05:13 <Lucifer_arma> well, now there's more hair.  :)  In a month or so I'll take another picture and make it my avatar so y'all can see my goatee.
05:13 <Fonkay> hair is no more?
05:13  * Lucifer_arma looked for the "submit" button before hitting enter on that last line.
05:13 <Fonkay> oh, ok, wait, i can't read
05:13 <Lucifer_arma> Hair is still there, it's just more hair becasue the last pic didn't have any on my face and now there is.
05:14 <Lucifer_arma> my wife's rich grandparents don't seem to be showing a prejudice over the hair anymore
05:14 <Fonkay> my bf cut his long hair off a few mnth ago
05:14 <Lucifer_arma> it's actually kind of frustrating.  When I was 20, having long hair was fun in part because I could fight what I thought ws a stupid prejudice.
05:14 <Fonkay> he looks much younger without it
05:15 <Lucifer_arma> But now at 30 (or so) people just accept it without applying a prejudice.  Is it because I'm not a cocky youngster anymore, or has the world changed that much in 10 (or so) years?
05:15 <Fonkay> i think it's you that's changed
05:15 <GodTodd> i think it's a little of both
05:15 <Lucifer_arma> heh, well, I still get some weird looks when I kiss my wife in public.  She doesn't look as old as she is and I apparently look older than I am.
05:16 <GodTodd> hrmm...i might be changing my major
05:16 <Lucifer_arma> I think there's a third factor that I sabotaged y'all's responses by neglecting to mention.  :)
05:17 <Fonkay> when my dad was about 35 and my sister was 15, they had the exact opposite problem.. when they went out, everyone thought they were a couple :/
05:17 <Lucifer_arma> I think people are more accepting of what you can do when you're older because you're wiser and stuff, and when you're younger, well, you're "Just a kid"
05:17 <Lucifer_arma> GodTodd: to what?  AE?
05:17 <GodTodd> hey...in canada, you never know, fonkay ;)
05:17 <Lucifer_arma> haha
05:18 <Lucifer_arma> well, with hair on my chin, people will probably start mistaking me for her father again
05:18 <GodTodd> utd is introducing a CE BS
05:18 <Lucifer_arma> Chemical Engineering?
05:18 <GodTodd> computer engineering
05:18 <Lucifer_arma> ah
05:18 <Lucifer_arma> what does a computer engineer do?
05:18 <Fonkay> it's not that, it's that fact that i have pictures of my dad at 18, and pics at 38 and he look exactly the same
05:18 <GodTodd> not sure...that's why it's still a 'might' :)
05:18 <Lucifer_arma> I know that sounds kind of dumb, but I can think of several things a computer engineer can do :)
05:19 <Lucifer_arma> heh.  I look completely different than I did at 18.  :)
05:19 <GodTodd> i envision something along the lines of robotics and AI
05:19 <GodTodd> tho that may be a pipe dream
05:19 <GodTodd> :)
05:19 <Lucifer_arma> hmmmm
05:20 <Fonkay> when ryan had long hiar he looked like he was in his mid-thirties
05:20 <Lucifer_arma> well, AI is a major of its own, isn't it?  Maybe it's only available for graduate studies, ie you get your BS in programming and your MS in AI
05:20 <GodTodd> that's what i'd figure...but i've been wrong once before
05:20 <Lucifer_arma> but maybe AI has finally moved out of being mostly theoretical/research work
05:21 <GodTodd> ok...i'm changing
05:21 <GodTodd> Computer engineers are electrical engineers that have additional training in the areas of software design and hardware-software integration
05:21 <Lucifer_arma> better check it out.  :)  Robotics as a degree is basically a combo, like BS in Mechanical Engineering and MS in Electrical Engineering
05:21 <GodTodd> that sounds rad
05:21 <GodTodd> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_engineering
05:21 <Lucifer_arma> so you're looking at BIOS, kernel/cpu interaction, that sort of thing?
05:22 <Fonkay> computers suck
05:22 <GodTodd> hah! robotics is in there :)
05:22 <GodTodd> right
05:22 <GodTodd> firmware and shit
05:23 <GodTodd> the land twixt hardware and software
05:23 <GodTodd> ooooh i bet i'd get to fuck with VR too :)
05:23 <Lucifer_arma> well, I'm considering going for a MS in robotics, or whatever fancy word spells "robotics"
05:24 <Lucifer_arma> I think AE + Robotics will make my resume look very good and open up possibilities for work that I really want to do :)
05:24 <GodTodd> well...utd has masters and phd in CE already
05:24  * Lucifer_arma needs to build an R2 unit
05:24 <GodTodd> now getting the BS program
05:25 <Lucifer_arma> sounds like a bullshit program
05:25 <Lucifer_arma> er
05:25 <Lucifer_arma> so my wife said at dinner last night (her grandparents are visiting, hence the grandparent comment) that my degree was 135 credit hours
05:25 <GodTodd> yeah....i can only sit on my AAS...working on my right to BS ;)
05:25 <Lucifer_arma> and I corrected her, because at UT it's 128 credit hours
05:26 <Lucifer_arma> then I suggested she got the 135 figure from A&M's program
05:26 <Lucifer_arma> so her step-mother said "That's because of all the remedial math courses aggies have to take"
05:26 <Lucifer_arma> damn UT snobbery
05:26 <GodTodd> haha
05:26 <Lucifer_arma> I stepped on her.  The woman's small, easy to step on, like Plankton.  Smells like him, too.
05:26 <GodTodd> what's plankton smell like?
05:26 <Lucifer_arma> Pointed out that A&M has a much higher-rated AE program than UT
05:27 <GodTodd> and the dude who did c++ teaches there
05:27 <Lucifer_arma> and that those extra credit hours are for engineering specific classes not offered at UT
05:27 <Lucifer_arma> I didn't have to whip out Bjarne Stroustroup on her, she cowed back a bit
05:27 <GodTodd> haha
05:28 <Lucifer_arma> but had I had to continue my offensive (heh), I'd have thrown him at her, and then said that I'd gotten enough UT snobbery in my calc 2 class

05:28 <Lucifer_arma> heh
05:29 <GodTodd> yeah a&m is a good school
05:29 <Fonkay> Plankton? other than the obvioous
05:29 <Lucifer_arma> the thing that irritates me so much about her UT snobbery is that she applies it to her daughter.  Her daughter got a BA in Art with a minor in business, "so [she] can sell her paintings"
05:29 <GodTodd> texas has a lot of good universities actually
05:29 <Lucifer_arma> and she had like a 2.3 GPA or something
05:29 <Lucifer_arma> how can you be a snob with a record like that?  Isn't a snob by definition someone who's "better than that guy"?
05:30 <Lucifer_arma> and yes, A&M is one of the best engineering schools in the country, as is UT.  The two are peers, comparable in most fields.
05:30 <GodTodd> no...a snob is someone who "thinks" they are "better than that guy"
05:30 <Lucifer_arma> If you want either ME or AE, though, A&M beats UT quite soundly
05:30 <GodTodd> hey....utd is not bad either :P
05:31 <Lucifer_arma> well, I don't know how different the other UT schools are.  I know UTEP is a really good school, and I just lump all the UT schools together
05:31 <Lucifer_arma> they are all very well-rated and have good records in industry
05:31 <GodTodd> yeah...the whole UT system rocks
05:31 <Lucifer_arma> and their alumni have done well
05:31 <GodTodd> well...utd was started by TI
05:31 <Lucifer_arma> hell, UT alumni put us on the moon, come right to it
05:31 <GodTodd> specifically to train people for their field
05:31 <Lucifer_arma> AND UT ALUMNI DIDN'T TAKE US BACK
05:31 <Lucifer_arma> :)

05:32  * Lucifer_arma notes he lives in UT's home city, so there's substantial exposure to UT snobbery here
05:32 <GodTodd> bet it's not there anymore :(
05:33 <Fonkay> does the states still have dst?
05:33 <Lucifer_arma> I think one of the astronauts that went up on Discovery this last time was a UTEP grad
05:33 <Lucifer_arma> yes?
05:34 <Lucifer_arma> it used to be the Sunday before halloween was the changeover.  DOn't know now that bushie got his fingers on it.
05:34 <Fonkay> hmmm
05:34 <Fonkay> oh yes, it's been moved though. to late august
05:34 <Fonkay> august, wtf
05:34 <Fonkay> november

05:38 <GodTodd> damn....march to november starting next year
05:38 <GodTodd> 8 fucking months
05:39 <GodTodd> what is the use?
05:39 <GodTodd> heh
05:39 <Lucifer_arma> starting next year?
05:39 <Fonkay> this year for you i think
05:39 <Lucifer_arma> so will I have to replace my atomic clocks next year, then?
05:39 <Fonkay> next year for canada
05:41 <GodTodd> 2007 for us
05:41 <GodTodd> march of 2007
05:41 <Fonkay> oh, ok
05:41 <GodTodd> we never start nuthin at the end of a year ;)
05:41 <GodTodd> well...cept elections
05:41 <GodTodd> heh
05:41 <Fonkay> i thought for some reason that it started beginiing of this year
05:42 <GodTodd> http://www.infoplease.com/spot/daylight1.html
05:42 <Lucifer_arma> Beginning in 2007, DST will start the second Sunday of March and end on the first Sunday of November.
05:42 <GodTodd> everything you ever wanted to know 
05:42 <Lucifer_arma> aha, we're looking at the same webpage
05:42 <GodTodd> :)
05:43 <Fonkay> i hate dst.. it takes me until jan to change all the clocks.
05:43 <Fonkay> i always forget at least one
05:43 <GodTodd> most of my clocks are automatic
05:43 <GodTodd> just my alarm clock and my watch aren't
05:43 <GodTodd> and the car clock...but i never change that anyway
05:43 <Fonkay> not even my computer is
05:43 <GodTodd> my computer is
05:44 <GodTodd> as well as the vcrs and dvds
05:45 <Fonkay> i don't have either here
05:45 <GodTodd> well...canada *does* have trees
05:45 <GodTodd> that's something
05:45 <Fonkay> it's the stupid wall clocks and wtahces that always screw me up though
05:47 <GodTodd> the computer keys too

05:50 <Lucifer_arma> my clocks are automatic too, but I want to know if I need to buy new clocks to deal with the new dst schedule
05:57 <Lucifer_arma> anybody here want to draw up new unit tiles for freeciv?
06:01 <GodTodd> I have no artistic ability :/
06:01 -!- Your_mom_arma [n=Jacob@pool-151-204-65-143.delv.east.verizon.net] has joined #armagetron
06:01 <GodTodd> mom will do it
06:01 <Lucifer_arma> hey mom, you want to draw up new unit tiles for freeciv?
06:02 <Your_mom_arma> i was thinking about doing it already
06:02 <Your_mom_arma> wait
06:02 <Lucifer_arma> well, I want them for units that don't exist.  :)  I want to extend the ruleset to include some neat sci-fi tech
06:02 <Your_mom_arma> oh
06:02 <Lucifer_arma> I'm not comfortable with freeciv ending at modern tech and want to extend it into the future
06:02 <Your_mom_arma> hehe
06:03 <Lucifer_arma> mostly I want SheVa guns from the posleen books.  :)
06:03 <GodTodd> basically, you want to merge freeciv with alpha centauri?
06:03 <Lucifer_arma> and armored infantry, and plasma cannons, and reactionless fighters/bombers, ICBMs, etc
06:04 <Lucifer_arma> don't know, never played alpha centauri
06:04 <GodTodd> it's a "continuation" of civ
06:04 <GodTodd> it's for after you colonize AC
06:04 <GodTodd> i have it around here somewhere
06:04 <GodTodd> heh
06:04 <Lucifer_arma> oh.  hmm
06:04 <Lucifer_arma> no, I just want more unit choices.  :)
06:05 <GodTodd> heh
06:06 <Lucifer_arma> I want things like mortars, ground-based missile boats, and some other stuff.  I want to flesh out ancient tech a bit, well, all the techs along the way I want to flesh out with more units
06:06 <Lucifer_arma> and maybe more intermediate techs along the way
06:06 <Lucifer_arma> I figure it's open source, so why not take advantage of the opportunity to try to correct the things I don't like about it?
06:08 <GodTodd> that's the whole point, isn't it?
06:10 <Lucifer_arma> yep :)
06:10 <Lucifer_arma> so, does 2.1 offer anything new that matters?
06:11 <GodTodd> damn damn damn
06:12 <Lucifer_arma> ?
06:13 <GodTodd> utd needs to get a BSCE plan posted 
06:13 <GodTodd> now
06:13 <GodTodd> heh
06:13 <GodTodd> i guess it won't matter for a while yet, tho
06:16 <Your_mom_arma> im willing to take a shot at it at least, mabey brainstorm a couple of the units we want like crazy elephant units
06:21 <Lucifer_arma> well, I'd like mortars, ground-based missile boats (missile launchers), plasma cannons to obsolete howitzers, armored infantry
06:21 <Lucifer_arma> some other stuff :)
06:21 <Lucifer_arma> gunpowder-based rocketeers of some sort
06:21 <Lucifer_arma> grenadiers
06:22 <Lucifer_arma> I'd like to seriously update the modern air units so that stealth isn't the only option
06:31 <Seyahnav> I think they should add air carrier
06:32 <Seyahnav> thatd be alot more usefull than just a plain carrier
06:32 -!- Seyahnav is now known as Vanhayes
06:32 <Lucifer_arma> air carrier?
06:33 <Lucifer_arma> the limit we have right now on what can be added is having tiles drawn for the units :)
06:33 <Lucifer_arma> if those of us that play here are willing to throw the tiles together, I'm willing to do the work on the rulesets
06:34 <Vanhayes> unless you want stick men, and the like, I cant do anything
06:34 <Vanhayes> heh, stick tank
06:34 <Lucifer_arma> well, there's plenty to work out anyway.  :)  I want to stretch the modern tech and add new techs after modern tech to get into some sci-fi stuff
06:35 <Lucifer_arma> we can't get into interplanetary growth and warfare, afaik, but we can add quite a bit more and still stay on one planet
06:36 <Lucifer_arma> I'd like an air unit that can fly 26 squares or so and drop paratroopers
06:36 <Lucifer_arma> in fact, I'd rather have that than airports for paratroopers
06:36 <Lucifer_arma> I should probably make a list somewhere, heh
06:36 <Vanhayes> the most Id like to see is more variety in the early techs, so you wouldnt have to wait untill the modern stuff to start really building an army
06:37 <Vanhayes> well para troopers dont need an airport to work if I remember right
06:37 <Vanhayes> just need to be within 10 squares of the city 
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> hmmm, I thought they needed an airport
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> but you should be able to paradrop other units, and paratroopers' special ability is being able to move afterwards
06:38 <Lucifer_arma> among future techs I'd like is an air unit that can carry howitzers and tanks
06:38 <Vanhayes> nah, airports only let you transfer one unit a turn to any other city with an airport
06:38 <Vanhayes> ya, those would be very useful
06:38 <Lucifer_arma> a long-range helicopter
06:39 <Vanhayes> heh, I love the UN wonder now
06:39 <Lucifer_arma> and yeah, I want a lot more early choices.  I don't think the selection from gunpowder->mobile warfare is full enough
06:39 <Vanhayes> with it helicopters dont lose health
06:39 <Lucifer_arma> heh
06:39 <Vanhayes> if they were faster Id use only them
06:39 <Lucifer_arma> I want a helicopter refuel unit that can be built by players who don't have the un wonder :)
06:40 <Lucifer_arma> apparently airbases don't affect helicopters
06:40 <Vanhayes> ya, stupid how airports dont work for that
06:40 <Vanhayes> airbase*
06:40 <Vanhayes> lost a few helicopters figuring that one out
06:40 <Lucifer_arma> well, I'm gonna study some calculus, but you might want to think how you'd like to change it to make it more fitting your own view of history :)
06:41 <Lucifer_arma> maybe in a couple of days I'll seriously worry about it.  I really want more military choices and some different upgrade choices
06:41 <Lucifer_arma> riflemen should upgrade again, imo
06:41 <Lucifer_arma> warriers should upgrade to phalanx instead of pikemen
06:42 <Vanhayes> ya, riflemen are from ww1 and 2 era 
06:42 <Lucifer_arma> speaking of whiches, it's easier to build a military when you start with 0 techs because you can build warriors for cheap, and then uprade them later to musketeers
06:42 <Vanhayes> they should at least upgrade to alpine or marines, if not a new unit
06:42 <Lucifer_arma> riflemen are from ~1850s and were obsolete by WWII :)
06:42 <Lucifer_arma> Davy Crockett was a rifleman
06:43 <GodTodd> not in canada ;)
06:43 <Lucifer_arma> heh
06:43 <Vanhayes> hey, our rifle men are still good
06:43 <Lucifer_arma> I'd like to see tanks get tiered, too
06:44 <Lucifer_arma> so 2-3 tank types using just modern tech
06:44 <Lucifer_arma> icbm's that are freaking expensive, but deliver a nuclear payload from one city to any other city
06:45 <Lucifer_arma> it kind of irritates me that there's no place for the cold war in freeciv
06:45 <Vanhayes> I want moon bases
06:45 <Vanhayes> with lasers
06:46 <Vanhayes> or some type of space weapon
06:48 <Vanhayes> like, you have to build a wonder, then build the stalite/weapon then build the ammo and it destroys any units on one square
06:49 <Vanhayes> I'd call it the Death Ray
06:53 <Your_mom_arma> well i drew up a morter guy
06:53 <Your_mom_arma> looks so so
06:54 <Your_mom_arma> should i just make a post on the forums? or upload it somewhere else
06:58 <Lucifer_arma> forums are fine
06:59 <Lucifer_arma> I was thinking I'd like two things most of all.  :)  More heavy offense/light defense units (like mortars) for gunpowder->mobile warfare
06:59 <Lucifer_arma> and I'd like a more conservative set of settings to accomodate a nuclear era where nearly every unit has a nuclear analog because of the development of tactical nuclear weapons
07:00 <Lucifer_arma> a more conservative set of settings is needed because the default is so bad that it only takes a few nukes to cause nuclear winter,
07:00 <Lucifer_arma> and that would make a tier of nuclear units useless.  But I'd like to make a tier of nuclear units that would be useful and separates the sci-fi units I want from modern units to hopefully give civilizations that are behind a chance to catch up before plasma cannons arrive
07:03 <Vanhayes> man... if I knew anything about programing I'd add a wonder called world peace, make it really hard to get, and have it destroy everyone's cities and units
07:03 <Lucifer_arma> heh
07:03 <Your_mom_arma> http://forums.armagetronad.net/viewtopic.php?p=103111#103111
07:04 <Your_mom_arma> haha van
07:05 <Your_mom_arma> must start building it 2000 bc , takes 1million gold to buy and turns dont decreace that number city size must be 16 to complete building
07:06 <Vanhayes> ha, yes and the only description is "this wonder brings around world peace." or something like that
07:07 <Your_mom_arma> haha
07:09 <Your_mom_arma> like how i had civ set up in that sceenshot?

08:28 <DrJoeTron> the trailer race
08:28 <DrJoeTron> complete carnage
08:28 <DrJoeTron> and was amazing
