04:46 <Lucifer_arma> ah, this one is, good
04:47 <Gursikh> no
04:47 <Gursikh> In texas most are, but you will be sorely dissapointed when you go out of state
04:50 * GodTodd has bene to quite a few states in the last couple of years...don't remember a walmart that *wasn't* 24 hours...
04:50 <GodTodd> been*
04:51 <Gursikh> northeast, most of them aeren't 24h, california same story
04:51 <GodTodd> heh...i haven't been northeast ever...and haven't been to california in a decade or more :)
04:52 <Lucifer_arma> nothing in northeast except yankees
04:52 <Gursikh> darn tootin'
04:52 <Lucifer_arma> I'm going to email my teacher before I plunk $20 down on a cable for my calculator
04:52 <Lucifer_arma> if he wants to see systems of equations worked out by hand, no point in the purchase
04:53 <GodTodd> takes hands to run a calculator...:)
04:53 <Lucifer_arma> heh
04:54 <Lucifer_arma> you'd think we're at the point where systems of equations is something you can delegate just like arithmetic
04:54 <GodTodd> you'd think
04:54 <Lucifer_arma> I emailed him. I expect him to say yes, since he said yes when I asked him the same question about wxMaxima on the homework
04:55 <Lucifer_arma> I *really* don't want to solve systems of equations on the test. If he says no, I'm going to brush up on my matrices
04:55 <Lucifer_arma> I found a program for my calculator that'll do that stuff, and also a calculus program
04:57 <Lucifer_arma> wal-mart's supposed to stock the connector kit, and there's a linux program that'll handle the connection
04:57 <Gursikh> there is a linux program for the TI-calc!?!?
04:57 <Lucifer_arma> yep
04:58 <Lucifer_arma> http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/about.html
04:59 <Lucifer_arma> but be warned if you have a titanium
04:59 <Lucifer_arma> bug in the firmware, doncha know
05:00 <Gursikh> I have no, no titanium
05:00 <Gursikh> I have 83, 83+, 84,92+ and a couple HP's
05:00 <GodTodd> oh good...my physics teacher extende dthe homework due date to tomorrow night :)
05:01 * GodTodd has a regular ti83
05:01 <Lucifer_arma> hey, send me one that does systems of equations :)
05:01 * Lucifer_arma has a ti83+
05:01 <Gursikh> 92+ does them
05:01 <Gursikh> and the hp's do too
05:01 <Lucifer_arma> doesn't the titanium do them too?
05:01 <Gursikh> no clue
05:01 <Gursikh> never had one
05:01 <Lucifer_arma> er, does it do systems of 3 equations?
05:02 <Gursikh> iirc yes
05:02 <Gursikh> but it's been a long while
05:04 <GodTodd> Fry the Jena Six!
05:09 <Lucifer_arma> wtf?
05:10 <GodTodd> some racial protest in loosiana
06:10 <Lucifer_arma> it should be legal to kill vegetarians, so long as you intend to eat them.
06:10 <Gursikh> +1
06:10 <GodTodd> agreed :)

07:17 <Lucifer_arma> first american lawsuit over gpl violation, near as I can tell
07:17 <Lucifer_arma> yeah, that line I gave was someone's sig in the slashdot discussion about it
07:17 <Lucifer_arma> I liked the sig, but the discussion reminded me why I quit reading slashdot

07:57 <Lucifer_arma> well, I'm glad I didn't run off and buy a link cable now
07:58 <Lucifer_arma> these programs that solve systems of equations only solve 2 unknowns, and they're dumb at that
07:58 <luke-jr> lol
07:58 <Lucifer_arma> they only take them in the form of ax + by = c
07:58 <Lucifer_arma> you give a, b, and c and they solve it
07:58 <Lucifer_arma> I can do that much in my head
07:58 <Lucifer_arma> grrrr

20:39 <mkzelda> items on wendys 99cent menu are still only 99cents
20:39 <mkzelda> well duh, its called the 99 cent menu, it'd be hard to price it otherwise
20:40 <mkzelda> and all they did was just put less/smaller/cheaper items on over tme
20:40 <mkzelda> time
20:40 <mkzelda> when commercials like that piss me off so much i will go out of my way not to buy their product
20:41 <mkzelda> i cant say there are too many instances of an advertisement that conned me into buying something
20:41 <mkzelda> but bad advertising will preclude me from doing so

20:58 <DrJoeTron> mkzelda speaking of
20:58 <DrJoeTron> did you know halo3 is coming out?
20:58 <DrJoeTron> i was unaware
21:02 <mkzelda> are u sarcastic, cause i really was unaware
21:02 <mkzelda> i thought halo 2 just came out on PC
21:02 <mkzelda> i mean i know its been on xbox for a while
21:03 <mkzelda> but wasnt it just a couple months ago that it hit PC and everyone bitched cause it was Vista only
21:03 <mkzelda> and then someone made the patch to make it play on xp
21:03 <DrJoeTron> yeah
21:03 <DrJoeTron> theres fucking halo3 stuff everywhere
21:03 <DrJoeTron> its like starwars merchandise bad
21:04 <DrJoeTron> i don't even like halo
21:04 <DrJoeTron> i mean the first one was kinda fun
21:04 <mkzelda> heh, i try to avoid things like that and i dont watch much tv and i adblock everything
21:04 <mkzelda> but some things slip thru, like that wendys commercial
21:05 <mkzelda> theres some furniture commercial that has some really fugly dikey chick w/ an even uglier voice
21:05 <mkzelda> just b/c they picked her as the actress i wont buy furniture from them
21:05 <mkzelda> b/c its the annoying crap that stays in my head
21:05 <mkzelda> idk my bff jill?
21:06 <mkzelda> that makes me want to punch the tv
21:06 <mkzelda> the new one where the kid spells out U-G-H
21:07 <mkzelda> thats not an acronym, u can just say ugh
21:08 <mkzelda> half those acronyms spoken outloud are more syllables than just saying hte words
21:08 <mkzelda> and I think 2002 is calling to inform these people of the T9Word function

21:09 <DrJoeTron> haha
21:09 <DrJoeTron> all i've been playing lately is tf2
21:09 <mkzelda> all ive been playing is nexuiz
21:09 <mkzelda> what is tf2?
21:09 <DrJoeTron> team fortress 2
21:09 <mkzelda> arma?
21:09 <DrJoeTron> source engine
21:10 <DrJoeTron> it doesnt come out till october 9th
21:10 <mkzelda> as in CSS?
21:10 <DrJoeTron> but who ever preorders Orange Box
21:10 <DrJoeTron> yeah essentially
21:10 <DrJoeTron> i'd pair it with half life first :v
21:11 <mkzelda> ive yet to play any of those yet
21:11 <DrJoeTron> who ever preorders orange box through steam gets 5 bucks off and you get to play tf2 early
21:11 <mkzelda> cause it doesnt work in wine... i get menus w/o text on the buttons
21:11 <mkzelda> so i dont know what buttons to clik

21:11 <spidey> mkzelda, wrong
21:11 <mkzelda> no you are
21:11 <DrJoeTron> spidey its amazing
21:11 <spidey> no, you are
21:11 <mkzelda> no you are
21:12 <spidey> i played cs:s last night, in wine
21:12 <mkzelda> no you are
21:12 <DrJoeTron> its so much better than TFC
21:12 <spidey> so YOU are
21:12 <spidey> and i got 50 fps at that
21:12 <mkzelda> thats cool, what version u using?
21:12 <spidey> on a pci 5500 fx :P
21:12 <spidey> spidey@hax:~$ wine --version
21:12 <spidey> wine-0.9.45
21:12 <mkzelda> i did have that problem w/ diablo as well, and i managed to fix it w/ some worms armageddon dx patch
21:12 <spidey> i'm running the latest version :P
21:12 <mkzelda> wine-0.9.44
21:12 <spidey> they don't even have bins for it yet
21:13 <spidey> i got wine running in 9.44...
21:13 <mkzelda> omg you're so bleeding edge
21:13 <mkzelda> :D
21:13 <spidey> wait
21:13 <spidey> i got cs:s running in wine
21:13 <spidey> 9.44*
21:13 <spidey> ffs
21:13 <spidey> i need to goto sleep
21:13 <mkzelda> nope
21:13 <spidey> yes, i did
21:13 <mkzelda> no i meant u dont need to sleep
21:14 <spidey> o
21:14 <spidey> i do so :(
21:14 <mkzelda> i wasnt trying cs:s i dont think
21:14 <mkzelda> i didnt get that far anyhow, it was all the steam bullshit that wouldnt work
21:14 <spidey> ?
21:14 <spidey> steam works fine for me
21:14 <spidey> :P
21:14 <mkzelda> it was half life 1 anthology i was trying
21:14 <spidey> there's some tweaking you have to do
21:14 <spidey> but it'll work
21:14 <mkzelda> oh now u say that
21:15 <spidey> did it freeze at 26% of the install?
21:15 <mkzelda> no, it installed
21:15 <mkzelda> i think, i just couldnt see any text
21:15 <mkzelda> on any menus
21:15 <spidey> might be the fonts
21:15 <DrJoeTron> welp i have a free half life 2 key
21:15 <mkzelda> free for you or free for me?
21:15 <spidey> lemme get it :D
21:15 <mkzelda> :D
21:15 <mkzelda> i called dibs
21:16 <DrJoeTron> spidey can go to hell :V
21:16 <DrJoeTron> no idea who is getting it yet
21:16 <DrJoeTron> i wont get it untill october9th
21:16 <spidey> :(
21:16 <DrJoeTron> when orange box actually releases
21:16 <spidey> actually i don't care for it
21:16 <mkzelda> i have a buddy that got banned from steam for 'cheating' so they blacklisted his serial and wouldnt listen to his complaints
21:16 <mkzelda> he's not really a smart kid, he's incapable of cheating
21:16 <spidey> i have hl2dm and so far i haven't had problems running hl2 mods
21:17 <spidey> so why would i need hl2? :P
21:17 <DrJoeTron> spidey you wont
21:17 <DrJoeTron> because you bought the source engine
21:17 <DrJoeTron> so they let you play all of the mods
21:17 <DrJoeTron> hl2 is great thats why
21:17 <DrJoeTron> did you try fortress forever?
21:17 <mkzelda> anyone wanna play nexuiz? :D
21:18 <spidey> the only problem i have is
21:18 <mkzelda> i like games that are free and run smoothly
21:18 <spidey> steam.exe uses 50% of my ram =/
21:18 <DrJoeTron> i like free games
21:18 <DrJoeTron> but i also like valve am willing to give them money
21:18 <DrJoeTron> because they haven't fucked me over yet
21:18 <spidey> haha i'm using windows 98 compat for wine
21:19 <spidey> steam's telling me if i don't upgrade my os i can't use steam after june 30th
21:19 <mkzelda> im pretty much happy w/ arma and nexuiz from now on
21:19 <DrJoeTron> theres one more game i need to get
21:19 <DrJoeTron> but wont be out till next year
21:19 <DrJoeTron> and thats fallout 3
21:19 <mkzelda> arma was good enuf on its own for the 3 or 4 years ive played it now, however long its been
21:21 <mkzelda> i have a modded xbox w/ almost every game on the hd, from b4 i got busted, and i never touch it, unless i want to emulate nes/snes/gen/psx, or stream tv shows
21:21 <mkzelda> if u count roms theres like 25,000 games on that thing and i just play arma and nexuiz
21:23 <DrJoeTron> god tf2 is fun

23:31 <DrJoeTron> i've never had more fun in an fps
23:31 * ghableska will just have to wait till his birthday :/
23:31 <DrJoeTron> hehe
23:31 <DrJoeTron> by that time it'l be more polished
23:31 <DrJoeTron> its still kinda buggy
23:31 <DrJoeTron> but man its so fun
23:31 <ghableska> does it run well on your comp?
23:31 <DrJoeTron> very well
23:32 <DrJoeTron> i can only run it very smooth on medium textures
23:32 <ghableska> ah
23:32 <DrJoeTron> so it looks like the xbox version
23:32 <DrJoeTron> but everything else is turned up including anti aliasing
23:32 <ghableska> the xbox version still looks pretty nice though
23:32 <DrJoeTron> get the pc one
23:32 <DrJoeTron> more longevity
23:32 <ghableska> heh, I don't have a 360
23:33 <DrJoeTron> but man
23:33 <DrJoeTron> its so fun
23:33 <ghableska> I love those "Meet the ____" videos
23:34 <DrJoeTron> they're fantastic
23:34 <DrJoeTron> valve was really late releasing it
23:34 <DrJoeTron> they missed the monday deadline
23:34 <DrJoeTron> by like 20 minutes
23:34 <ghableska> ...that's not much
23:34 <DrJoeTron> they were having major bugs with th LINUX dedicated server
23:34 <ghableska> oh
23:35 <DrJoeTron> so they just released it with just the windows dedicated server
23:36 <ghableska> what's your favorite class?
23:36 <ghableska> HWG? :p
23:36 <DrJoeTron> it depends on the situation
23:36 <DrJoeTron> its THAT balanced
23:37 <ghableska> :o
23:37 <DrJoeTron> breaking sieges of a billion engineers and sentry guns, its all about combining heavy weapons and medic
23:38 <ghableska> oh, for that 30 seconds of invulnerability?
23:38 <DrJoeTron> 10
23:38 <DrJoeTron> so you just walk out and destroy their 15 minutes worth of building
23:38 <DrJoeTron> spy is incredible too
