03:34 <DrJoeTron> amnumnumnum
03:36 <ghableska> DrJoeTron: insurgency mod looks fun :D
03:36 <DrJoeTron> hah
03:36 <DrJoeTron> that virtual barbershop thing has its own thread
03:36 <DrJoeTron> its got all of these neat other ones too
03:37 <ghableska> show me! ;p
03:39 <DrJoeTron> http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2492534
03:40 <ghableska> barbershop and the matches are my two favorites
03:44 <Lucifer_arma> cutouts
03:44 <Lucifer_arma> GodTodd: I figured out what we're going to do and how we're going to do it
03:44 <Lucifer_arma> plywood cutouts
03:47 <GodTodd> we are?
03:48 <Lucifer_arma> we = me and my kids
03:48 <Lucifer_arma> think about it, though
03:48 <GodTodd> oh ok...that's "you are"
03:48 <GodTodd> :P
03:48 <Lucifer_arma> 2 ft x 9 in are needed for each piece
03:48 <Lucifer_arma> a piece of plywood is 4 x 8 feet
03:48 <Lucifer_arma> it's 20 chess pieces per piece of plywood
03:49 <Lucifer_arma> if you build the base with plywood as well, then you get a complete chess set with 3 pieces of plywood
03:49 <Lucifer_arma> cheap plywood is $10/sheet
03:49 <Lucifer_arma> you can get better, of course
03:50 <GodTodd> but not much cheaper ;)
03:51 <Lucifer_arma> right, you can get oak for $20/sheet (I've got the page open on lowes)
03:51 <Lucifer_arma> http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productList&pad=true&Ne=8000&category=Hardwood%20Plywood%20(Finished%20/%20Cabinet%20Grade)&N=0+5000160
03:51 <Lucifer_arma> it won't be very thick, but that's fine
03:51 <Lucifer_arma> if you double up on plywood for the pieces, you can make crosses
03:52 <Lucifer_arma> where you basically have the piece cutout, and then you place half-pieces orthogonal to it, so from the top it's an x
03:53 <GodTodd> don't need half pieces if you notch them
03:54 <Lucifer_arma> the pieces themselves, if you don't try to optimize plywood usage, come in at 2 ft by 9 inches
03:54 <Lucifer_arma> notch?  what do you mean?
03:54 <GodTodd> er...notch *one*
03:54 <GodTodd> have a long notch cut out of the piece you place orthogonal to the solid piece
03:54 <GodTodd> like in the middle
03:54 <Lucifer_arma> maybe I should use a cad program for this, heh
03:54 <Lucifer_arma> oh, right
03:55 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, that's a possibility too, probably the product will look a lot better
03:55 <GodTodd> it'd hold together fairly well that way, i think
03:55 <Lucifer_arma> I'm not going to do that, though.  I'm going with the single flat piece, and I'll put stabilizers from the scrap
03:55 <GodTodd> ahh
03:56 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, I think I should use a cad program to draw the pieces
03:56 <Lucifer_arma> well, if I can print it, still, that is
03:56 <GodTodd> not going to shape them normally?
03:56 <GodTodd> or are you?
03:56 <Lucifer_arma> see, I want to make traces that I can give the kids and have them cut them out and then trace onto the wood
03:56 <Lucifer_arma> then I'll get my jigsaw and cut the pieces out
03:57 <Lucifer_arma> sand the rough edges, then assemble with the bases
03:57 <Lucifer_arma> then the kids can help paint them :)
03:57 <GodTodd> :)

07:15 <Lucifer_arma> man, talk abaout getting off task
07:18 <Lucifer_arma> hmmmm
07:18 <Lucifer_arma> so, do I use cad or inkscape to draw this?
07:19 <GodTodd> cad would probably be better for realworld sizing
07:19 <Lucifer_arma> #m Your_mom_arma I'm going to build a giant chess set
07:19 <armabot> Lucifer_arma: The operation succeeded.
07:19 <Lucifer_arma> the question is printing
07:19 <GodTodd> true
07:19 <Lucifer_arma> will qcad go ahead and consume as many pieces of paper as needed to print the drawing to exact size?
07:19 <Lucifer_arma> if so, I'd just as soon use qcad
07:19 <GodTodd> dunno...never used qcad :)
07:19 <Lucifer_arma> since I know how to use it, and I don't know how to use inkscape ;)
07:20 <Lucifer_arma> qt-based 2d autocad clone
07:21 <Lucifer_arma> I'll have to build qcad from source to use it :(
07:26 <GodTodd> heh
07:26 <GodTodd> i'm debating the best way to alphabetize my recipe list now that i have it printing just the list of names
07:27 <GodTodd> maybe have it populate a list then use the sort() function...
07:27 <GodTodd> hmmm

09:04 <Lucifer_arma> what are good search terms that would turn up male dolls targeted for boys and collectors that stand a foot and a half tall?
09:08 <Lucifer_arma> aha, toy soldier :)
09:11 <GodTodd> Lucifer_arma: aesthetics mostly....and easy navigation
09:12 <Lucifer_arma> no, I mean, er
09:12 <Lucifer_arma> what kind of widget are you going to put it in?  that sort of thing
09:12 <GodTodd> it's going into a list widget
09:12 <Lucifer_arma> because some widgets sort for you, if you provide a cmparison function
09:12 <Lucifer_arma> have you started with model/view yet in pyqt?
09:12 <GodTodd> somewhat
09:13 <GodTodd> i may redo it without worrying about the resizing thing until the end :/
09:13 <Lucifer_arma> because if you provide the stuff needed to allow the view to sort itself, you don't have to worry about sorting anything
09:13 <GodTodd> hmmm
09:13 <GodTodd> that'd work
09:13 <GodTodd> cuz i'll have a list widget and a combobox object eventually...both of which i'll want organized

09:22 <GodTodd> Lucifer_arma: neat :)
09:23 <Lucifer_arma> I need to hook up my printer and run some test prints so I can see how they'll look
09:23 <Lucifer_arma> probaby dig up some cardboard that's the right size and run an actual test cut :)
09:23 <Lucifer_arma> measure a hundred times, cut once
09:23 <GodTodd> yep
09:23 <P4> oh, it's lagged :|
09:23 <GodTodd> make cardboard templates
09:24 <Lucifer_arma> that's not a bad idea, I was just going to use paper templates
09:24 <GodTodd> well...if you're gonna cut cardboard anyway...and it's sturdier for tracing :)
09:24 <Lucifer_arma> heh, I'd probably have all the pieces drawn if my wife hadn't, er, wanted attention
09:24 <Lucifer_arma> it is sturdier for tracing
09:24 <GodTodd> haha
09:25 <Lucifer_arma> I'll have to see if my neighbor has a better saw for the actual cutting than my jigsaw, although my jigsaw will work
09:33 <GodTodd> true
09:34 <GodTodd> ok...there i got the designer widgets set up...now i'll have to study how to integrate that with what i have so far on my code :)
10:19 <DrJoeTron> i really want mario strikers charge

10:54 <Lucifer_arma> no  lie
10:55 <Lucifer_arma> those are going to be used as templates to make a chess set where the king stands 2 feet tall
10:55 <hang3r> that's far too kinky for me... Dirty Dirty old man
10:55 <hang3r> DIRTY
10:56 <Lucifer_arma> I guess those barbs down under haven't discovered civilized gaming yet

10:57 <hang3r> barbs as in females? Nah, females are for cooking our food down here
10:57 <Lucifer_arma> barbs as in barbarians
10:57 <hang3r> They are similar 
10:58 <Lucifer_arma> I'm aiming for a scale where the squares on the board will be 14 inches on a side
10:58 <hang3r> That's rather large 
10:58 <Lucifer_arma> it makes the board 9 feet square

11:11 <DrJoeTron> yes
11:11 <DrJoeTron> it comes out next week
11:11 <DrJoeTron> i preordered at gamestop
11:11 <DrJoeTron> you want the link?
11:12 <DrJoeTron> Steve14 http://www.gamestop.com/product.asp?product%5Fid=T000562
11:13 <DrJoeTron> that should be it

11:40 <DrJoeTron> oh does it?

11:42 <Steve14> DrJoeTron: forget it
11:42 <DrJoeTron> it was an april fools joke you realize :/
11:43  * Steve14 slaps his head
11:43 <Steve14> *ouch*, that hurts ^^
11:44 <Steve14> didn't saw the date of the news xD
11:46 <DrJoeTron> god damn
11:46 <DrJoeTron> i  need to reformat soon
11:47 <Steve14> windows user, DrJoeTron ?
11:47 <DrJoeTron> yup
11:48 <DrJoeTron> i've let it go to hell
11:48 <Steve14> DrJoeTron: poor guy
11:48 <DrJoeTron> so I'm just waiting for the moment that i feel like doing it
11:48 <DrJoeTron> oh yesm
11:48 <DrJoeTron> i'm such a tortured soul 
11:49 <DrJoeTron> i reformat every summer
11:49 <DrJoeTron> and try new things out for a year
11:49  * Steve14 doesn't has the problem with his SuSE Linux 10.0 ^^
11:49 <DrJoeTron> WUTS LUNEX?
11:49 <DrJoeTron> i'm not learning another OS
11:50 <DrJoeTron> and I'm not sacrificing compatibilty with 75% of the software i use frequently
11:50 <Lucifer_arma> neither of those are legitimate reasons not to use linux anymore
11:50 <Lucifer_arma> joe, this is 2007
11:51 <DrJoeTron> Lucifer_arma is there a version of Adobe Creative Suite for linux?
11:51 <Lucifer_arma> no
11:51 <DrJoeTron> then no
11:51 <DrJoeTron> I'm not using it
11:51 <DrJoeTron> i need those programs
11:51 <Steve14> DrJoeTron: but The GIMP :P
11:51 <Lucifer_arma> why don't you list the features you need instead, and then ask if thsoe features are available in linux?
11:51 <Lucifer_arma> your'e saying "I need a ford", when you really just need a car
11:52 <Steve14> there are many alternatives
11:52 <DrJoeTron> most of the games i have only work with windows
11:52 <Lucifer_arma> most of the games you have very likely work in wine
11:52 <Steve14> and the best thing, the don't cost anything
11:52 <DrJoeTron> not when the rest of the world interms of graphic design uses creative suite :)
11:52 <DrJoeTron> i dont know many printing companies that use GIMP
11:53 <Lucifer_arma> maybe I'm weird, but every printing company I've dealt with has taken files I could make
11:53 <DrJoeTron> how did this turn into a YOUR OS SUCKS conversation?
11:53 <Lucifer_arma> it's not
11:53 <DrJoeTron> they have to
11:53 <Lucifer_arma> it's a "YOUR ATTITUDE SUCKS" conversation
11:53 <DrJoeTron> because I don;t want to switch to an OS i have no clue how to use, and most of the software I use is not compatibile with it?
11:53 <DrJoeTron> yeah
11:54 <DrJoeTron> HOW IRRATIONAL
11:54 <Steve14> you started with:  "i  need to reformat soon"
11:54 <Lucifer_arma> great, so let some evil company in seattle determine what you can and can't see/hear/read
11:54 <Lucifer_arma> that's pretty rational
11:54 <DrJoeTron> i couldn't give a shit about who runs it
11:54 <Lucifer_arma> why don't you just sign away your right to think and get it over with?
11:54 <DrJoeTron> M$ M$ M$
11:54 <DrJoeTron> i didnt even pay for it
11:55 <Lucifer_arma> you're paying for it every day
11:55 <Steve14> Lucifer_arma: let's stop, he wants his os and doesn't want to know about other os :)
11:55 <DrJoeTron> I know the other
11:55 <Lucifer_arma> maybe he should ask mkzelda what electronic rights are like
11:55 <DrJoeTron> I refuse to use vista
11:55 <Steve14> that's an easy thing :P
11:55 <DrJoeTron> and probably going to stay on xp untill i have no other choice but to move on to a different os
11:55 <DrJoeTron> no shit
11:55 <Lucifer_arma> then what are you going to do when the rest of the world moves on and you don't?
11:55 <DrJoeTron> fucking horrible os
11:56 <DrJoeTron> uh, upgrade?
11:56  * Lucifer_arma notes people who use DOS can't read MS Word 2003 files
11:56 <DrJoeTron> good thing i dont use DOS
11:56 <Lucifer_arma> good thing
11:57 <DrJoeTron> Adobe CS is pretty fucking important though for me
11:57 <DrJoeTron> since i need it for school and what have you
11:57 <Steve14> have we ever said you have to switch ?
11:57 <Lucifer_arma> I used to have a friend who told me that MSVC was required to be a profesisonal programmer
11:57 <Steve14> Lucifer_arma: lol
11:58 <Lucifer_arma> heh, yeah, honestly, I couldn't give a rat's ass if you use linux or not.  I'm more concerned with the part where you just give away your freedom to whoever asks for it
11:58 <Lucifer_arma> "Please, come and enslave me!"
11:58 <DrJoeTron> where do you get that?
11:58 <Lucifer_arma> the internet may be new, but the events happening in this country are not
11:58 <DrJoeTron> google will take the world before microsoft does
11:58 <Lucifer_arma> well, they're new here
11:58 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, so?
11:59 <DrJoeTron> should i ride you for "omg u use google ads u puppet"?
11:59 <Steve14> uhm, nobody can rule the world alone

12:00 <Steve14> btw. i wanna play now the current Armagetronad SVN, cya later
12:00 <Lucifer_arma> they were a failure
12:00 <Lucifer_arma> I think we got all of $6 for it the whole time it was running
12:00 <DrJoeTron> hahaha
12:01 <Lucifer_arma> actually, probably more like $20, but still a failure
12:01 <DrJoeTron> how long were they up for?
12:01 <Lucifer_arma> couple of months
12:01 <DrJoeTron> ah 
12:01 <Lucifer_arma> it was in march or so that I took them down
12:02 <Lucifer_arma> I didn't even do it intentionally, I just switched the default skin to wrtlprnft's skin, noticed the ads gone a few days later and decided not to care about it
12:02 <DrJoeTron> hah
12:02 <Lucifer_arma> same with my website
12:02 <DrJoeTron> when I upgrade I'm going to dual boot with some form of linux
12:02 <Lucifer_arma> but when we get the nautilus site up, they'll be there loud and clear
12:03 <DrJoeTron> i've got a friend who's close enough to help me with ubuntu
12:03 <DrJoeTron> nautilus?
12:03 <Lucifer_arma> yeah
12:03 <DrJoeTron> wasat>
12:03 <Lucifer_arma> moved all the stuff that makes liberals puke and conservatives red-faced from my site and have it in a holding pen
12:04 <Lucifer_arma> I need to do some more work to gensite before nautilus can launch
12:04 <Lucifer_arma> not hard work, just work
12:04 <Lucifer_arma> higher priorities right now, like my stupid budget program
12:04 <Lucifer_arma> so nautilus is on my summer to-do list

12:07 -!- Steve14 [n=stephan@p54884E66.dip.t-dialin.net] has left #armagetron ["Konversation terminated!"]
12:07 <DrJoeTron> you make these?
12:07 <Lucifer_arma> yeah
12:07 <DrJoeTron> purdy :v
12:08 <Lucifer_arma> I'm supposed to make them into templates to cut out from plywood
12:08 <Lucifer_arma> the king is 2' tall :)
12:08 <DrJoeTron> holy hell
12:09 <DrJoeTron> btw Lucifer_arma does wine support Direct X 9?
12:09 <Lucifer_arma> as far as I know, yes
12:09 <DrJoeTron> hmm
12:09 <DrJoeTron> i think i talked to invader about that
12:10 <DrJoeTron> and he said it was kind of a disaster
12:10 <Lucifer_arma> wine is nearing a 1.0 release, which means they're almost there for compatibility
12:10 <DrJoeTron> lemme know when it reaches compatibility :9
12:10 <Lucifer_arma> well, I don't do anything with any directx programs, so I wouldn't have any idea if it worked or not
12:11 <Lucifer_arma> and the last program I tried to run didn't install for some reason
12:11 <DrJoeTron> most of my programs use it :/
12:11 <DrJoeTron> aka video games
12:11 <Lucifer_arma> (Quicken 2002, which runs fine in wine if you have a windows installation where it can use microsoft dlls)
12:11 <Lucifer_arma> I'd suggest finding new games
12:12 <DrJoeTron> noted and put in the to do list pile
12:12 <Lucifer_arma> the adobe CS thing is a valid concern because you're aiming to draw a living off it, but games are a dime a dozen
12:12 <Lucifer_arma> and there's a lot of awesome games for linux :)
12:12 <Lucifer_arma> my kids have been playing Drunken Angry Dwarves
12:12 <DrJoeTron> make sure they never see half life :/
12:13 <DrJoeTron> other wise you might disown them when the sneakretly create a windows partition with steam on it
12:13 <Lucifer_arma> nah, I'll use the password in the bios feature as needed
12:13 <DrJoeTron> haha
12:14 <Lucifer_arma> actually, I intend that by the time they're 12, they'll have their own computers each
12:14 <DrJoeTron> i wonder how easy it is to crack the bios password
12:14 <DrJoeTron> isn't still limted to like 6 characters?
12:14 <Lucifer_arma> it's pretty damn easy
12:14 <Lucifer_arma> just stick a jumper on
12:15 <DrJoeTron> my friend gave me this program that can find up to 12 characters for logging into XP
12:15 <DrJoeTron> it just boots from CD
12:15 <Lucifer_arma> hmmm
12:15 <epsy> man
12:15 <Lucifer_arma> well, it's really freaking late, and I need to get to bed
12:15 <DrJoeTron> more like really freaking early
12:15 <epsy> you don't even need to crack windows passwords
12:15 <Lucifer_arma> but if anybody manages to make any of those plywood cutouts before I do, take some pictures :)
12:15 <DrJoeTron> epsy tell me about it
12:15 <DrJoeTron> haha 
12:15 <epsy> just press f8 at start and you have the admin account all for you
12:16 <DrJoeTron> for safe mode?
12:16 <epsy> yes
12:16 <DrJoeTron> uh
12:16 <DrJoeTron> i still have to log in
12:16 <epsy> there's an account then, which isn't displayed normally
12:16 <epsy> « Administrator »
12:16 <DrJoeTron> thats what its set to right now
12:17 <epsy> which has no password ...
12:17 <DrJoeTron> which does...
12:17 <epsy> then you did set one
12:17 <DrJoeTron> yup?
12:17 <DrJoeTron> i've got this program that finds all of that and gives you the passwords
12:17 <epsy> (or your children)
12:18 <DrJoeTron> nah i set the passwords on my pc
12:18 <epsy> i have some on my hd too
12:18 <DrJoeTron> one day i saw my pc and found AOL installed on it
12:18 <epsy> xD
12:18 <DrJoeTron> because my dad decided he wanted to use my pc
12:18 <DrJoeTron> even though I built him his own to destroy
12:19 <DrJoeTron> so i password protected it
12:19 <epsy> lol
12:19 <DrJoeTron> because aol is a real bitch to get rid of
12:19 <epsy> you don't have such kind of pest programs on linux
12:20 <epsy> at least when you keep using the software your distro provides
12:20 <DrJoeTron> oh god no
12:20 <DrJoeTron> i'm not stupid
12:21 <DrJoeTron> the only computer i'd buy at a store is a laptop
12:21 <DrJoeTron> i have my own copy of windows with some edited stuff on it
12:21 <DrJoeTron> i forgot what was removed
12:21 <epsy> the « enter serial number » widget code ? :o)
12:22 <DrJoeTron> wait no, this is a vanilla install
12:22 <DrJoeTron> Xp Pro
12:22 <DrJoeTron> i remember trying those whacky use made versions of windows
12:22 <DrJoeTron> and then "wheres embedded video?
12:23 <DrJoeTron> why is my keyboard set up for the european standard
12:23 <DrJoeTron> yeah this will not do.
12:23 <epsy> °°

13:09 <mkzelda> my version is so long it wont fit the nicklist
13:10 <mkzelda> so clearly its not an acceptable tag as they cant put their name after it
13:10 <mkzelda> i made it excessively long as a joke to imitate how they made theirs longer and longer

22:09 <Lucifer_arma> Vanhayes: dont' know, you'll have to 'splain it to me
22:12 <ghableska> http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/6698753.stm
22:12 <Vanhayes> Lucifer_arma, it controls your borders, and how the ai treats you
22:13 <Vanhayes> so at first, your city/civ has borders only one square out, and can only gain resource from things in those squres
22:14 <Vanhayes> with improvements such as temples,walls courthouses barracks, etc it increases your cultur rating
22:15 <Vanhayes> wonders increase cultur rating even more, so that your borders, and area of control expand
22:16 <Vanhayes> If a civ with a high culture builds a city close enough to another civ with a lower culture, that city might join your civs, and vice versa
22:18 <Vanhayes> with the ais, if your culture is high enough it can make them want to differ to you more, so that if you propose a trade the wouldnt like if your culture were equal, they would take it if you had a high culture
22:21 <Vanhayes> it adds a different aspect to the game, you can send a settler into another countries territoy, then build wonders like crazy in it and if it close to another city it can join you, so you conquer it without evenbreaking peace with that civ
22:35 <P4> #t es en 28May07 214214 <GodTodd> el sexo era demasiado áspero

23:10 <Lucifer_arma> yay, my rayovac charger takes the same fancy batteries that energizer says they can recharge in 15 minutes
23:32  * Lucifer_arma googled it, it takes NiMH batteries
23:32 <Lucifer_arma> Vanhayes: that sounds like something I was interested in
23:54 <mkzelda> #weather 27545
23:54 <mkzelda> oh ya
23:54 <mkzelda> if the bots down thats not gonna work huh
23:59 <luke-jr_> Lucifer_arma: doesn't mean it will actually do it
23:59 <Lucifer_arma> ?
23:59 <luke-jr_> IIRC, the Rayovac chargers won't try the 15 min unless its their battery
23:59 <Lucifer_arma> doesn't matter, because that's not the point
23:59 <luke-jr_> ok
