01:51 <ghableska> heh, alright
01:55 <DrJoeTron> anyone know the color code for green?
02:04 <GodTodd> in?
02:06 <GodTodd> on?
02:06 <GodTodd> for?
02:07 <GodTodd> >-;;,ccc3?
02:07 <ghableska> heh
02:20 <Lucifer_arma> I disagree!
02:20 <Lucifer_arma> most of the time, suicide is the best option *after* they take the flag from you
02:20 <Lucifer_arma> while your flag is safe, keep defending it and try to rack up kills. After they take it, kill yourself! Worst you give them is points for one run and points for your death.
02:29 <spidey> but that's gay
02:29 <spidey> if they can get the flag from you you should try to kill them, not kill yourself so they can't score
02:29 <spidey> i mean if everyone did that, noone would win the match

03:42 <Lucifer_arma> spidey: I was talking about when you're by yourself and the other team is full up
03:43 <Lucifer_arma> the question is, do you respawn your team or not? I say no, concede the round (especially if you're ahead) unless you're waaaay behind
03:43 <spidey> ...
03:43 <Lucifer_arma> you have to be behind enough to make it worthwhile to give up 2-3 flag runs while you respawn your team
03:43 <spidey> the flag is still beside the respawn zone yes?
03:44 <spidey> you only give up 1 flag run
03:44 <spidey> and yes, it's worthwhile if your teammates are half-way decent
03:44 <spidey> otherwise i wouldn't waste the time either

04:38 <Fonkay> god damnit
04:38 <Fonkay> exams
04:39 <GodTodd> i'm taking a 2 week crash course in us history...not like i haven't studied it enough before :/
04:40 <Fonkay> stupid US their history sucks
04:40 <GodTodd> our history rocks :P
04:40 <spidey> canadians are worse
04:40 <spidey> it's like
04:40 <Vanhayes> ours is pretty simple to remember
04:40 <spidey> "then one day...we're invaded by french people"
04:41 <Fonkay> we kicked your ass
04:41 <GodTodd> ummm...when did canada kick our ass?
04:41 <spidey> who wants a icecap anyways
04:41 <Vanhayes> "then another day we burnt down the americans' whitehouse"
04:41 <Fonkay> 1812
04:41 <Your_mom_arma> i dont remember a war against canada
04:41 <spidey> didn't they kick "britians" ass?
04:41 <Vanhayes> uh no
04:41 <Fonkay> canada
04:42 <Fonkay> americans like to forget that piece of history
04:42 <spidey> war of 1812 was between britian and america
04:42 <Compn> they taught us canada burned down the white house
04:42 <Compn> in 1 minute
04:42 <spidey> lol
04:42 <Compn> then never said another thing about it
04:42 <Fonkay> we did
04:42 <Vanhayes> we are humble like that
04:42 <Compn> in 12 years of us schools ;p
04:42 <GodTodd> you guys wouldn't have done shit without england there :P
04:43 <Compn> usa is the country that does not learn from its mistakes
04:43 <Compn> so come and burn it down again :d
04:43 <Vanhayes> one day..... one day
04:43 <Fonkay> wouldn't be too hard
04:43 <GodTodd> bring it on, frozen, funny-talkers :D
04:43 <GodTodd> heh
04:43 <Vanhayes> just for the hell of it, ill get the newfies to do it
04:44 <Fonkay> what's he talking aboot, funny talkers eh?
04:44 <spidey> aboot!
04:44 * GodTodd notes that burning a building doesn't really constitute "kicking our ass"
04:44 <GodTodd> :P
04:44 <spidey> one boot won't do no good though...
04:44 <Fonkay> no, but winning the war does
04:44 <Compn> when is canada going to kick quebec out?
04:44 <spidey> didn't win
04:45 <Fonkay> oh silly americans...
04:45 <Fonkay> we're not kicking quebec out, they're trying to leave, they're just too poor to do it alone
04:45 <GodTodd> With the defeat of Napoleon in 1814, and the stalemate on the battlefields, both nations agreed to a peace that left the prewar boundaries intact. Canadians remember the war as a victory in avoiding conquest by the Americans, while Americans celebrated a new spirit of national unity.
04:45 <Your_mom_arma> why does everyone have to pick on us?
04:45 <GodTodd> stalemate == tie :P
04:45 <Fonkay> cause it's so easy moms
04:46 <GodTodd> cuz everyone hates the cool kids
04:46 <spidey> lol
04:46 <Fonkay> most of us don't give a shit what you say about canada, but most of you get really defensive
04:46 <Your_mom_arma> we're a big target, go pick on russia
04:46 <GodTodd> it's called national pride :D
04:46 <Fonkay> and we get a rise out of fucking with you
04:47 <GodTodd> heh
04:47 <GodTodd> hey, you guys have to have *some*thing to do, eh? ;)

05:09 <GodTodd> Having destroyed Washington's public buildings, including the White House and the Treasury, the British army next moved to capture Baltimore, a busy port and a key base for American privateers.
05:10 <GodTodd> can't trust a one of 'em
05:10 <GodTodd> heh
05:10 <Your_mom_arma> they love to hate us
05:10 <GodTodd> they take credit for burning down the white house when it was the brits
05:11 <Your_mom_arma> but they depend on us for trade
05:11 <GodTodd> heh, of course
05:11 <GodTodd> we're like everyone's big brother...they hate us til they really need to see that R rated movie

05:39 <Lucifer_arma> fuck
05:39 <Lucifer_arma> I got a C in my calc class :/
05:41 <Lucifer_arma> ok, I know Fonkay left and Vanhayes left, so y'all remind them
05:42 <Lucifer_arma> the terms of the treaty that ended the war of 1812 basically said "let's pretend this didn't happen and go back to like things were in the beginning"
05:42 <Lucifer_arma> it was a *tie*
05:42 <Lucifer_arma> and canada still lived under the subjugation of the british crown, hardly a "victory"
05:45 <GodTodd> that's what i told them :)
05:45 <Lucifer_arma> well, see, burning down the white house *was* Canada's 15 minutes of fame
05:45 <Lucifer_arma> :)
05:45 <GodTodd> wikipedia says it was the brits
05:45 <GodTodd> just before they tried to take baltimore
05:45 <Lucifer_arma> otoh, I read up on France in WWII, and I've gotta say, I may never tell another french surrender joke again
05:46 <Lucifer_arma> well, canada was a british colony, but the british used canadian militias for the war because they were in the tail end of the napoleanic wars at the time
05:46 <Lucifer_arma> the blockade was british ships, but the land units were mostly canadian, I think with their native allies but could be wrong about that
05:47 <GodTodd> not sure...we don't get to the war of 1812 til after break
05:47 <GodTodd> heh
05:47 <Your_mom_arma> luci eleborate on the french in ww2 thing
05:47 <GodTodd> and it's been sooo long since i've taken us history
05:47 <Lucifer_arma> ok
05:47 <Your_mom_arma> ww2 is our trump cad in any argument
05:47 <Lucifer_arma> ever hear about the Battle of Verdun from WWI?
05:47 <Your_mom_arma> not that i can remember
05:48 <Lucifer_arma> ok, Verdun is this piece of ground that has particular cultural significance for the french. A german general decided they could get into a little battle of attrition over Verdun and wear the french out
05:48 <Lucifer_arma> so he launches a massive offensive that almost succeeded. Almost. :) The French commander in that battle was a man named Petain
05:49 <Lucifer_arma> in the 20s or 30s, I forget which, Petain rose to some prominence in French politics. Petain was a very conservative man whose politics were pretty loopy,
05:49 <Lucifer_arma> but he was the hero of Verdun!
05:49 <Lucifer_arma> So when the Nazis went into France, french parliament gave him "emergency powers"
05:50 <Lucifer_arma> he dissolved the french parliament, made a deal with the Nazis, and then basically became the brutal dictator that was Vichy France
05:50 <Lucifer_arma> Vichy France was the government recognized as the legitimate government of France, right? The capital moved to the town of Vichy, hence the name
05:50 <Lucifer_arma> Petain was removed from effective power by the Nazis in 1943 or so and remained as a figurehead, during which time he collaborated even more with the Nazis
05:51 <Lucifer_arma> he was anti-semitic pretty badly, in fact he was every bit a Nazi himself. If there had been a Nazi party in France, he probably would have been a member, and his politics were nazi-like
05:51 <Lucifer_arma> so he supported the Nazi power in France
05:52 <Lucifer_arma> meanwhile, another guy who'd fought for France in WWI, rose to some distinction and also got involved in politics declared Free France
05:52 <Lucifer_arma> this guy was the leader of the french resistance, who had to resist both nazi occupation *and* Vichy France
05:52 <Lucifer_arma> so they were both a guerrilla organization fighting the evil invaders and also a revolutionary organization wanting to restore the French Republic
05:53 <Lucifer_arma> *that* guy was Charles de Gaulle, who later went on to push for the establishment of the EU
05:53 <Lucifer_arma> you know, when he became President of France much later
05:53 <GodTodd> de Gaulle? never heard of 'im
05:53 <GodTodd> ;)
05:53 <Lucifer_arma> anyway, Petain is viewed in much the same way as Benedict Arnold is by Americans
05:54 <Lucifer_arma> he had popular support at the time of the Nazi invasion, but very quickly showed he wasn't the right guy for the job and betrayed the French people
05:54 <Lucifer_arma> so France didn't so much surrender as they got taken by a sith lord
05:54 <GodTodd> heh
05:54 <Your_mom_arma> brutal
05:54 <Lucifer_arma> and the guy who decided to fight is a great hero by anybody's reckoning, at least for his actions in WW2
05:55 <Lucifer_arma> he basically said "Petain is not the legitimate leader of our country because the legitimate government would not have given up so easily"
05:55 <GodTodd> how do all these european countries get fooled into putting such bad people in power...we would never.....nvm
05:55 <GodTodd> heh
05:55 <Lucifer_arma> and he was right, he had french support
05:56 <Lucifer_arma> so think of how you'd feel if Benedict Arnold had actually managed to sell out the whole country, and some french guy came along and say all americans were wussy surrender-monkeys
05:56 <Lucifer_arma> so, I guess we still "saved" France, both liberating them and preventing communist occupation, and that's still useful as a trump card
05:57 <GodTodd> yeah...we're still bigger, badder and tougher :P
05:57 <Lucifer_arma> later on, after the fourth French Republic was established (the successor state to Vichy France, established after the war), de Gaulle didn't like it so he burned out and went to Algeria
05:57 <Lucifer_arma> that government tried to hold onto its colonial possessions, which included Algeria, but also included Viet Nam
05:58 <Lucifer_arma> they fought in Vietname for 10 years before finally losing, and then de Gaulle was elected President
05:58 <Lucifer_arma> he said he wouldn't serve unless they wrote a new constitution, and they did, and the Fifth French Republic was born, which is the current government of France
05:58 <Lucifer_arma> when the French pulled out of Vietnam, the US saw that without someone stopping it, the Vietnamese were going to become communist
05:59 <GodTodd> yeah...the one country that can mess up a Disney amusement park heh
05:59 <Lucifer_arma> which is how we got to be involved in it. When we finally pulled out, the Vietnamese had been at war for 25 years or so, first defeating France, then defeating us
05:59 <Lucifer_arma> so when you look at it that way, we couldn't do any better than France did
06:00 <GodTodd> thing is...when you're saving a people from another people and both peoples look essentially the same...it's hard to know your enemies....
06:00 <Lucifer_arma> who were we saving, and from what? :)
06:00 <GodTodd> well...depends on who you ask ;)
06:01 <Lucifer_arma> we absolutely fucked up in Vietnam
06:01 <GodTodd> no doubt
06:01 <Your_mom_arma> vietnam/iraq lose lose war
06:01 -!- Arma658 [email@example.com] has joined #armagetron
06:01 <Lucifer_arma> there's no doubt, at least amongst military historians, that if we'd gone into Vietnam with overwhelming force, the outcome would have been different
06:01 <Lucifer_arma> with one minor problem
06:01 <GodTodd> the soldiers didn't deserve the shit they got coming back tho
06:01 <Lucifer_arma> the government we put together in Vietnam and propped up was a brutal dictatorship
06:02 <Lucifer_arma> somehow we thought that was preferable to a communist regime
06:02 <GodTodd> kinda like we did in afghanistan?
06:02 <Lucifer_arma> the northern alliance is actually pretty decent as far as moslem republics go
06:02 <Your_mom_arma> i thought afganistan was ruled by warlords
06:02 <Lucifer_arma> we're supporting the northern alliance there
06:02 <Lucifer_arma> problem is, the Taliban have regrouped
06:03 <Lucifer_arma> we can actually win in afghanistan, I think, but I don't think we can win in Iraq
06:03 <Arma658> sdamn taliban
06:03 <Lucifer_arma> hi durka
06:03 <GodTodd> yeah...iraq is a losing cause
06:03 <GodTodd> but bush is either too stubborn or in too deep to admit it
06:03 <Your_mom_arma> i cant help but see so many simalarities between iraq and vietnam
06:04 <Lucifer_arma> well, I think we could have won from the outset
06:04 <Lucifer_arma> the real problem is that we've fucked ourselves over. Those soldiers raping that girl and then murdering her whole family, Abu Ghraib, etc.
06:04 <Lucifer_arma> why should the Iraqis care what we have to say? We obviously don't know what we're doing!
06:04 <GodTodd> exactly :)
06:05 <GodTodd> before you set up someone else's government, you really should know how to run your own
06:05 <Lucifer_arma> so, we've lost their support. We did actually have their support going in, but we've lost it, and in trying to work out amongst themselves what to do they're not finding a uniting force
06:06 <Lucifer_arma> our presence is a divisive force, Al-Qaeda's presence is a dividing force, so they're back to fighting the same old fights the ways they've always fougt them
06:06 <GodTodd> which is why bush now "needs more troops"

06:07 <Lucifer_arma> it's like grabbing 10 people who all hate each other, sticking them on an island forceably, and telling them to get along
06:07 <Arma658> :)
06:07 <GodTodd> that sounds like a horrible reality show
06:08 <Lucifer_arma> heh
06:08 <Arma658> >:)
06:08 * GodTodd thinks Lucifer_arma is a closet Survivor watcher ;)
06:09 <Lucifer_arma> see, it gets even deeper. Iraq was formerly a British Protectorate, and those areas that became BPs became so after WWI, when the Ottoman Empire was dismantled
06:09 * Arma658 is GOD
06:09 <Lucifer_arma> the Brits administered the areas, but didn't exactly do anything for the people. It got pretty nasty. Some areas revolted to establish themselves, others were spun off on their own
06:09 <Lucifer_arma> Iraq was spun off
06:09 <Lucifer_arma> wait, you mean <red>GOD?
06:10 <Arma658> huh
06:10 <Arma658> GOD
06:10 <Lucifer_arma> <red>GOD<grey lightcycle>?
06:10 <Arma658> nope
06:10 <Lucifer_arma> ah, a poser then
06:10 <Arma658> lol im not god XD
06:11 <Lucifer_arma> so basically western powers really have been fucking over the middle east since the end of WWI
06:11 <GodTodd> of course
06:11 <GodTodd> they have oil
06:11 <GodTodd> heh
06:11 <Lucifer_arma> well, it wasn't for oil originally. :) It was essentially vengeance over the Ottoman's participation in WWI
06:12 <GodTodd> i know
06:12 <GodTodd> but whenever you mention middle east it's automatically oil

06:19 <DrJoeTron> Your_mom_arma I camped out for a wii.
06:19 <Your_mom_arma> haha
06:19 <Lucifer_arma> quit whining emo kid
06:19 <Your_mom_arma> did you get one?
06:19 <DrJoeTron> it was the saddest moment of my life
06:19 <DrJoeTron> yeah I did
06:20 <DrJoeTron> I had to go at 9:30pm the day before
06:20 <Your_mom_arma> i dont know why tank hasnt lo0cked or deleted that
06:20 <DrJoeTron> and I #7 of the 18 available.
06:20 <Your_mom_arma> wow
06:20 <DrJoeTron> yeah
06:20 <DrJoeTron> but hey, its over now, my pride is slowly returning
06:21 <xfroggy> wow the emo problem is spreading across the world I believe
06:21 <Lucifer_arma> why don't you go wallow in self-pity for awhile?
06:21 <Your_mom_arma> it starts with you xfroggy
06:21 <xfroggy> hmm
06:21 <DrJoeTron> someone should just tell the emo guy that its down the street, not across the block
06:21 <xfroggy> u 2nd in line then?
06:21 <Lucifer_arma> would rounding up all the emo kids and putting them in gas chambers constitute genocide?
06:22 <DrJoeTron> no
06:22 <Your_mom_arma> whats with the x?
06:22 <Lucifer_arma> it means "formerly"
06:22 <DrJoeTron> it would count as a christmas miracle
06:22 <Your_mom_arma> tank needs to delete/lock these threads
06:22 <Lucifer_arma> I think emos constitute irrefutable proof that there is no god
06:23 <Lucifer_arma> aren't you supposed to wallow in guilt, not self-pity?
06:23 <xfroggy> LOL
06:23 <DrJoeTron> tank yelled at me for complaining about the 3 threads that sprung up out of nowhere that were filled with crappy crap
06:23 <DrJoeTron> so I'm afraid to say anything :/
06:23 <Lucifer_arma> I think I showed considerable restraint
06:23 <Your_mom_arma> he yelled at you?
06:24 <DrJoeTron> not so much yell as he told me to pretty much quit complaining about it.
06:24 <Lucifer_arma> well, you were getting a tad *emo*tional about it
06:24 <DrJoeTron> I'm so glad my post is at the bottom of page 1
06:24 <DrJoeTron> and then the fun truely starts
06:27 <Lucifer_arma> I think he's figured out he tried to wallow in self-pity in the wrong place :)
06:27 <Lucifer_arma> hmmm, can we release a special version of the game called emogetron, that uses a different master server?
06:28 <Lucifer_arma> and links a different forum?
06:28 <DrJoeTron> I just knew SOMEONE was going to take the abortion topic and run with it
06:28 <Lucifer_arma> heh. "Emo boy core dumped Emo girl and his life still sucks. Cry for him!"
06:28 <Lucifer_arma> "Match Winner: Not you"
06:29 <Your_mom_arma> haha
06:29 <Your_mom_arma> its not the place for that kind of discussion
06:30 <Lucifer_arma> ? It's Really General, isn't it?
06:30 <Your_mom_arma> and tanks always going on about it being a family freindly forum so i didnt understand why he posted in it and left it
06:30 <DrJoeTron> "Emo Boy Took Emo Girl off of his myspace friends list for 1 point"
06:31 <Lucifer_arma> maybe he wanted to pretend not to notice it and give some folks a chance to bitchslap the emo kid before he locked it?
06:31 <Your_mom_arma> i ment the "family freindly forums" that guru3 is supossed to be
06:31 <Your_mom_arma> haha

06:36 <Your_mom_arma> i remember whole servers full of em
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> to be honest, all I remember about it was how irritated I was that I had to silence like 4 people
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> and then going to my own server where I could kick on site
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> *sight
06:37 <Your_mom_arma> haha

17:53 <DrJoeTron> look at his avatar for god sakes

17:55 <Lucifer_arma> you know, we don't have to round up all the emos and put them in gas chambers
17:55 <Lucifer_arma> we could use them as front-line troops in an invasion of North Korea
17:55 <Lucifer_arma> we could also use them to clear minefields

20:24 <Lucifer_arma> SIZE_FACTOR is the exponent for the factor itself, right?
20:25 <Lucifer_arma> so wht's the base, then?
20:28 <wrtlprnft> -1 translates to 1/√2
20:28 <wrtlprnft> -2 translates to .5
20:28 <wrtlprnft> so i guess the base is √2
20:29 <wrtlprnft> but don't ask me why this base was chosen and why the setting is an integer, not a float

22:17 <spidey> it's not "total" homeschool
22:17 <spidey> it's more like college
22:17 <Vanhayes> ha
22:17 <spidey> you get the stuff, do it on your own time, then goto a building and test
22:18 <wrtlprnft> actually, yeah, it does exist, but only for very disabled people
22:18 <spidey> only difference is we don't have classes
22:18 <spidey> just tutoring if we need it

22:33 <spidey> hmm
22:34 <spidey> i'm still seeing the a with a line over it
22:34 * wrtlprnft notes that using an irc client as root is generally NOT a good idea
22:34 <spidey> and |
22:34 <wrtlprnft> your terminal needs to support utf-8
22:34 <spidey> it's putty
22:34 <spidey> lol
22:35 <wrtlprnft> and you need to tell irssi and screen to use utf-8
22:35 <spidey> but i think i installed debian with iso
22:35 <wrtlprnft> i'm sure putty has a setting for that
22:35 <spidey> how do i tell irssi to use it?
22:37 <wrtlprnft> umm, sec
22:37 <wrtlprnft> /set term_charset=utf-8
22:38 <wrtlprnft> anyways, good night
