00:05 <noob7> can someone maybe point me into the right direction here, I've been searching the forums but wasnt able to find anything suitable - I am looking for a little PHP snippet that strips players.txt from everything but the player names to display them... can someone help me with this?
00:10 <Lucifer_arma> basic string parsing 101?
00:17 <noob7> so you teach that course?
00:18 <xfroggy> lol ^
00:19 <noob7> :/
00:46 <Lucifer_arma> come on, discard the first line, and just read the first string from each line after that
00:46 <Lucifer_arma> how hard can it be?
00:47 <Lucifer_arma> strip whitespace from every line, then read from the white for the first whitespace character and trim out that part of the string
00:47 <Lucifer_arma> if you want to keep the information, do it, otherwise you can just discard it
00:48 <Lucifer_arma> when you've trimmed off all the columns on the right that are known to be scores and shit, whatever's left must be the player name
00:48 <Lucifer_arma> see?  basic string parsing 101....
01:00 <noob7> well I know what I'd have to do to get the players names, but my php knowledge is rather small to say the least
01:01 <noob7> knowing what needs to be done and doing it is a completely different task ;)
01:01 <noob7> thanks anyways, got it running thanks to someone sharing his snippet
01:10 <DrJoeTron> microsoft is my buddy now
01:10 <DrJoeTron> because they sent me a free zune
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> now you can squirt shit to your friends
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> except they probably have ipods
01:11 <DrJoeTron> they have ipods,
01:11 <DrJoeTron> i would never pay for an mp3 player
01:11 <DrJoeTron> but i'll take a free one regardless
01:12 <DrJoeTron> the best part is no one is going to steal it
01:12 <DrJoeTron> because its a zune
01:12 <DrJoeTron> i'd have more worries of people stealing my mini disc player before someone wants steal my zune
01:12 <DrJoeTron> to*
01:22 <GodTodd> zune sucks
01:22 <GodTodd> DrJoeTron: sucks
01:22 <GodTodd> microsoft sucks
01:22 <GodTodd> teh wrld s lame or smth

06:36 <mkzelda> u kick her ass?
06:36 <Lucifer_arma> yes
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> well, not exactly.  :)
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> just talked, had a little fight, then made up
06:37 <Lucifer_arma> but I think I've successfully forced the issue to where my wife now has to go have her confrontation with the woman
06:38 <Lucifer_arma> and I got it on my terms, but the suggestion came from the step-mom
06:40 <Lucifer_arma> always best when the other side suggests what you really want :)

06:40 <Lucifer_arma> got a lot of question marks in it
06:40 <Stewie-arma> hi everybody
06:40 <tramshed> hmm
06:41 <Lucifer_arma> is it supposed to have the question marks?
06:41 <tramshed> nah
06:41 <tramshed> its supposed to be upside down
06:41 <Lucifer_arma> why don't you dig up locutus's website?  He's got the whole alphabet there for you
06:41 <Stewie-arma> crap I g2g again
06:41 <tramshed> tell me if this does anything for you
06:41 <Stewie-arma> lol
06:41 <tramshed>  ??????????does this work correctly?
06:41 <Stewie-arma> ???
06:41 <tramshed> it should be in reverse
06:41 <Lucifer_arma> now there's question marks, and it's not reversed
06:41 <Lucifer_arma> plugin?
06:41 <tramshed> hah
06:41 <tramshed> unicode
06:41 <Stewie-arma> ?????????????????????????????????????
06:42 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, we've found around here that unicode doesn't work reliably enough in irc clients to be worth using
06:42 <tramshed> yep, thats been established
06:42 <tramshed> mine supports it though, heh
06:43 <Stewie-arma> Lucier_arma: do you use x-chat?
06:43 <Lucifer_arma> Stewie-arma: no

06:50 <GodTodd> Uptime: 8 days, 3 hours and 58 minutes
06:50 <Lucifer_arma> then you missed the recent ubuntu software updates :)
06:50 <GodTodd> nope
06:50 <GodTodd> i've updated 2 or three times in the last day and a half
06:51 <Lucifer_arma> just not rebooting?
06:51 <GodTodd> nope
06:51 <Lucifer_arma> you'll need to recompiled pyqt4 probably, then, because python got updated
06:51 <GodTodd> probably
06:51  * Lucifer_arma just learned that, and has to recompile pyqt3 and pyqt4, but is only doing pyqt3
06:52  * tramshed compiles for fun
06:53  * Lucifer_arma has better things to do with his time :)
06:54  * GodTodd farts for fun.
06:54 <Lucifer_arma> not that I think you're wasting your time, of course
06:56 <Lucifer_arma> well, school starts tomorrow for me.  Anyone else?
07:01  * GodTodd raises his hand.
07:04 <Lucifer_arma> what classes you got this time?  I remember you said physics, what else?
07:05 <GodTodd> physics, data structures, humanities and government
07:06 <Lucifer_arma> light semester?  ;)
07:06 <GodTodd> you?
07:07 <GodTodd> light but necessary ;)
07:11 <Lucifer_arma> statics, martial arts weaponry, chemistry, us government, speech, comp 2
07:11 <Lucifer_arma> sorry about the wait, I had to re-authenticate to my school's new authentication scheme, and I couldn't remember the last class
07:11 <GodTodd> haha
07:12 <Lucifer_arma> about to put it all on my calendar again and make a last attempt to get it synced to my pda
07:12 <GodTodd> does your school combine us and tx govt too?
07:12 <Lucifer_arma> no, separate classes
07:12 <GodTodd> ahhh...mine covers both at once
07:12 <GodTodd> but we still have to take two of them :/
07:12 <Lucifer_arma> but you still need 6 credit hours :)
07:12 <GodTodd> yep
07:13 <Lucifer_arma> that's state law
07:13 <GodTodd> yep
07:13 <Lucifer_arma> aka welfare for government teachers
07:13 <GodTodd> heh
07:13 <GodTodd> the teacher i had in spring wasn't even a govt teacher
07:13 <Lucifer_arma> my texas government teacher said that law was lobbied for by UT alumni :)
07:14 <Lucifer_arma> so UT could get a bigger chunk of money to fund the classes
07:14 <GodTodd> no doubt on the leg that the more educated people are about the system, the more likely they'll make better choices too
07:15 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, and it was passed back when politicians needed people to be more educated about the system to stay in power
07:15 <GodTodd> now they need us *less* educated ;)
07:15 <Lucifer_arma> now it's the other way around, I'll bet the law could get reversed pretty easily if UT saw money in it
07:15 <Lucifer_arma> heh, the more educated people tend to vote democrat these days
07:16 <GodTodd> i don't doubt it
07:20 <Lucifer_arma> tomorrow is statics and martial arts weaponry
07:21 <Lucifer_arma> and I have to email my us government teacher, since I'm taking that as distance learning
07:21 <GodTodd> i just have data structures tomorrow
07:22 <Lucifer_arma> well, I'm going to email my us government teacher in a few minutes, I need to get a jump on that
07:22 <Lucifer_arma> I need to get a jump on everything, semester's too full to let any class get backed up the first week
07:23 <Lucifer_arma> and I can't drop any more classes, particularly classes in my degree (outside of the core stuff)
07:23 <GodTodd> right

17:12 <spidey> i can? O.o
17:12 <spidey> none of them have routing functions
17:12 <spidey> they're basically a accesspoint
17:12 <spidey> all they work as
17:13 <z-man-work> Yeah, plug router 1 into the internet, plug the DMZ server and router 2 into router 1, and the rest of your computers into router 2
17:13 <z-man-work> then the DMZ server can't access the rest of your computers, but the rest can contact the DMZ server.

19:34 <Lucifer_arma> heh
19:34 <Lucifer_arma> youngest is a milestone, though :)
19:35 <Lucifer_arma> but he's a trooper.  He was clearly scared, but he held himself together and did as he was told and walked to class
19:35 <GodTodd> truly
19:35 <Lucifer_arma> one of the other kids started wailing, and the parents kept trying to comfort him, so the teacher banished us
19:35 <GodTodd> heh
19:35 <Lucifer_arma> we were supposed to walk the kids to the classroom, but we got banished in front of the office
19:35 <Lucifer_arma> so everyone stood there crying (many of them it was their first kid, and some of the women were expecting another one shortly)
19:36 <Lucifer_arma> so what do you do?  It was my youngest, so I'd already been through that whole thing
19:36 <Lucifer_arma> how long do you wait to be polite, and how long of a wait is wasted time?
19:36 <Lucifer_arma> so I stood for like 5-10 minutes, then left, and everyone followed me out, so I guess I chose the appropriate interval
19:36 <GodTodd> heh
19:37 <Lucifer_arma> I already like his class though.  He's one of 3 white kids, and the rest are all very diverse
19:38 <Lucifer_arma> there was a couple speaking french, another speaking an indian language, we'd already met the little asian girl and her mom, etc.
19:38 <Lucifer_arma> very diverse.  I hate to sound racist, but I'm awfully happy there aren't so damn many white kids in his class
19:39 <Lucifer_arma> also got my first look at the new principal.  He seemed of good humor and compassionate, but it wasn't much of a detailed impression
19:39 <GodTodd> i like the principal we have
19:39 <Lucifer_arma> oh fuck, I got pictures of the other two kids when they went to school, but we were in so much of a hurry that I didn't get him :(
19:39 <GodTodd> he's the standard "put on a happy face" school administrator...but he seems really open to parents
19:39 <Lucifer_arma> I'll take them tomorrow and pretend they happened today :)
19:40 <Lucifer_arma> is he a "beautiful people" kind of principal?
19:40 <GodTodd> was gonna say...i faked it one year with my oldest ;)
19:40 <GodTodd> nah
19:40  * GodTodd got a picture of his oldest sitting with his little brother on "first day of school" :)
19:41 <Lucifer_arma> :)
19:41 <GodTodd> it'll make a good memory in twenty years :)
19:41 <Lucifer_arma> the kid that started crying first set off a couple of other kids, and the rest got a little more scared
19:41 <Lucifer_arma> but my kid trooped right on.  :)  I'm very proud of him.  ;)
19:42 <GodTodd> i haven't had to deal with a crying kid...my oldest wanted me to leave fast on his first day
19:42 <Lucifer_arma> mine too, she didn't want us to embarrass her in front of her new friends
19:42 <Lucifer_arma> my second kid it was business as usual
19:42 <GodTodd> geez...after next year i'll be the parent of a middle schooler :/
19:42 <Lucifer_arma> geezer
19:43 <GodTodd> he's in 4th grade now
19:43 <Lucifer_arma> holy shit, I'm not far from it either
19:43 <Lucifer_arma> oldest is in 3rd grade
19:43 <GodTodd> yep
19:43 <GodTodd> we're doddering old fools now :)
19:43 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, well, now we measure age by oldest kid, so you get to be the fucking geezer for awhile
19:43 <GodTodd> yep
19:43 <GodTodd> til they hit 18
19:43 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, then we get to be kids again ourselves
19:44 <GodTodd> thing is i'll probably have one more...so you'll have a good 5 year head start on your second childhood
19:44 <Lucifer_arma> of course, I don't know, I have told my wife a few times that she's close enough in age to our oldest that they can go clubbing together
19:44 <GodTodd> haha
19:44 <Lucifer_arma> second?  don't you mean third?
19:45 <GodTodd> well...i suppose that's true..."second adolescence"...how's that? ;)
19:45 <Lucifer_arma> much better.  and this time, with sex!
19:45 <GodTodd> ahahaha
19:46 <Lucifer_arma> man, if my wife takes it to heart, she and my daughter could compete for the same men in the clubs, too
19:46 <GodTodd> no calls from school...that's a good thing :)
19:46 <Lucifer_arma> heh
19:47 <Lucifer_arma> we usually don't get any the first day, but now with 3 kids in school, we've increased the odds of a call happening on any given day
19:47 <Lucifer_arma> and with that idiot nurse still working there.....
19:47 <Lucifer_arma> man, I hope my daughter's teacher isn't totally worthless
19:47 <GodTodd> i like my son's teacher
19:48 <Lucifer_arma> same teacher, right?
19:48 <GodTodd> she cracked down on him last year with the "flashing" incident during recess
19:48 <GodTodd> yeah
19:48 <Lucifer_arma> he was flashing people?
19:48 <GodTodd> probably different mainstream teacher but same spec ed teach
19:48 <Lucifer_arma> ah, right
19:48 <GodTodd> he pulled his pants down on the basketball court
19:49 <Lucifer_arma> the spec ed teacher is the one that matters, though, because she's the one that's going to bat for him against the rest
19:49 <GodTodd> yep
19:49 <Lucifer_arma> so you'll get the call as either a backstabbing attempt on the spec ed teacher, or because shit has actually happened :)
19:50 <Lucifer_arma> (that's how the aces counselors were for me, but I didn't realize it until it was almost too late to take advantage of their services)
19:50 <Lucifer_arma> throw a bunch of women in a building and charge them with educating a bunch of kids and what do you get?
19:50 <GodTodd> she's a good teacher...one of those that actually *likes* doing what she does :)
19:50 <Lucifer_arma> that's just asking for the really horrible workplace politics
19:51 <Lucifer_arma> man, to be a good spec ed teacher, you have to love it
19:51 <GodTodd> yep
19:51 <Lucifer_arma> you can teach history and hate teaching
19:51 <GodTodd> that's for sure
19:51 <GodTodd> they put up with a lot of shit
19:51 <Lucifer_arma> yes, and they frequently really make a difference for the kids
19:51 <Lucifer_arma> I'm excepting the idiots at AHS, of course
19:52 <Lucifer_arma> they were totally worthless
19:52 <Lucifer_arma> but we could probably count the teachers that weren't worthless there on a couple of fingers
19:52 <GodTodd> my son has made massive strides in the educational environment he had last year...so i'm excited to see how far we can push it this year
19:52 <GodTodd> very true
19:53 <Lucifer_arma> he'll have Reimann's Hypothesis proven by the time he's 16
19:53 <GodTodd> i'm hoping ;)
19:53 <Lucifer_arma> and everybody will say "Oh look at what the <pejorative> kid did!" because they're not smart enough to understand what he did
19:53  * Lucifer_arma hates public schools
19:53 <GodTodd> yeah
19:54 <Lucifer_arma> "what a pretty picture!"
19:54 <GodTodd> we need vouchers
19:54 <Lucifer_arma> turn private schools into public schools?  are you kidding?
19:54 <Lucifer_arma> then what're we going to do?
19:54 <Lucifer_arma> not that I have much choice right now, but ... but ... b-but .....
19:54 <GodTodd> actually...i think we need to turn education over to the private sector
19:54 <GodTodd> get the fucking government out of it
19:54 <Lucifer_arma> I think the kids need to burn the schools down
19:55 <Lucifer_arma> in protest
19:55 <GodTodd> have Wal-School
19:55 <Lucifer_arma> hey, I took my youngest for a speech evaluation today
19:55 <Lucifer_arma> which is what we were so busy doing that I forgot the camera
19:56 <Lucifer_arma> remember the CPS lady suggested it?  So that when the evil school pounced on him for his speech (which is a little behind), we could say "fuck off, we're handling it"
19:56 <GodTodd> right
19:56 <Lucifer_arma> anyway, he did well.  I think he knew he was being tested, so he wanted to impress the lady
19:56 <Lucifer_arma> she still recommended speech therapy, but agreed with me that it was entirely possible he would be at his age level or ahead in 6 months
19:57 <GodTodd> my son's speech has caught up well (he's assigned to a speech therapist)
19:57 <Lucifer_arma> so we're going to hold off a little bit and see how pre-k deals him, you know, trying to keep variables we can control for and measure the result
19:57 <GodTodd> right
19:57 <GodTodd> haha
19:57 <Lucifer_arma> speech therapy can be a godsend for the right kid, but to be honest, I've seen a few kids where all speech therapy gave them was a lot of well-enunciated babble
19:58 <GodTodd> i told my youngest that we have to pick up his brother in an hour and a half...so he's standing by the garage door waiting
19:58 <Lucifer_arma> my kid's got the language down pretty well, he tells jokes and plays fun conversational games and all
19:58 <Lucifer_arma> haha
19:58 <Lucifer_arma> he's still 1 right now, right?
19:58 <GodTodd> yeah
19:59 <GodTodd> feb he'll turn 2
19:59 <Lucifer_arma> ah yes, the terrible twos
19:59 <GodTodd> that last from 1-18 ;)
19:59 <Lucifer_arma> they tell you about the terrible twos to get you all worked up about it, but nobody mentioned the terrible threes :)
19:59 <GodTodd> and fours
19:59 <Lucifer_arma> oh hell, my daughter's really mellowed out
19:59 <GodTodd> and fives
20:00 <Lucifer_arma> she's doing chores and shit with a good sense of urgency and reasonable quality, and by finally trusting me on them she's finding all sorts of play time she didn't used to have
20:00 <GodTodd> yeah...we still have tussles over chores
20:00 <GodTodd> e\s
20:00 <Lucifer_arma> but she's already trying to push puberty even though it hasn't hit yet.
20:00 <Lucifer_arma> she's in a hurry to grow up
20:00 <GodTodd> especially over quality and half-assed work
20:01 <Lucifer_arma> she took total responsibility over getting ready for school this morning, she was a total little woman
20:01 <GodTodd> i tell him that if you aren't going to do it right (reasonably well at least) then you might as well not even try and if you don't at least try i get pissed ;)
20:01 <Lucifer_arma> she wanted to get her own breakfast (which she did), make her own lunch, etc.
20:01 <Lucifer_arma> she did all that
20:01 <GodTodd> yeah...my son did all that
20:02 <Lucifer_arma> I tell them to do it right, and if they don't, I dump all their shit out and make them do it again
20:02 <GodTodd> he likes school so he wanted to help make it faster ;)
20:02 <Lucifer_arma> heh
20:02 <Lucifer_arma> my daughter's really excited, which is good after the way last year went
20:02 <Lucifer_arma> a lot of her friends are in her class this year, the primary troublemaker has moved away, and the secondary troublemaker is also in her class
20:02 <Lucifer_arma> there's real potential here!
20:03 <GodTodd> haha
20:03 <Lucifer_arma> just watch the secondary troublemaker get pressured into being friends with my daughter, and my daughter finally gets to be the bigger girl
20:03 <Lucifer_arma> I hope it works out that way, that'll be so awesome for my daughter
20:04 <GodTodd> that'd rock :)
20:04 <Lucifer_arma> my older son got the teacher that my daughter woudn up transfering to at the end of last year, so both of them are really excited about that
20:05 <Lucifer_arma> so, we have one known good teacher, one teacher with a lot of experience with pre-k kids, and my daughter's teacher is in only her second year of teaching
20:05 <Lucifer_arma> which doesn't mean she's bad, mind you, but inexperience played into that crap last year, so there's some trepidation
20:06 <Lucifer_arma> well, I'm gonna go grab a nap before I have to go to school.  I haven't slept since yesterday
20:10 <GodTodd> have fun :)
