01:03 <luke-jr> and if we're around, we MIGHT see it
01:03 <luke-jr> and MIGHT have time to help
01:03 <luke-jr> but chances are, "its broke" will get 100% IGNORED
01:03 <luke-jr> because it tells us NOTHING
01:03 <Ratchet--> well k
01:03 <PinkTomato> Ratchet--: Ratchet-- Ratchet-- Are you still running compiz?
01:03 <luke-jr> you will at the very least need to DESCRIBE THE PROBLEM

01:04 <Ratchet--> then it goes black

04:03 <Lucifer> fonkay: like I'm really going to be able to *make* someone who lives a couple thousand miles from me do something she doesn't want to do....
04:04 <ct|kyle> Lucifer: how is your girl chasing going  (hi there)
04:09 <Lucifer> heh, not good
04:09 <Lucifer> struck out with the librarian
04:10 <Lucifer> right now I've got higher priorities than girl chasing, so it's not happening at all
04:10 <ct|kyle> ah
04:10 <Lucifer> there was a girl in a geology class that was showing a high amount of interest
04:11 <Lucifer> but besides looking like she wasn't even old enough to buy beer, some casual eavesdropping revealed a strong possibility of a boyfriend already (but nothing conclusive)
04:13 <Lucifer> hmmm, do I want to spend the memory to have a widget whose sole purpose is to allow someone to create a new budget when none exist?
04:13 <Lucifer> er, I guess that question answers itself, because I need a way to create more after there is one
04:14 <Lucifer> ahhh, that's the question that stopped work last night
04:14 <Lucifer> ok, I get it now ;)
04:17 <ct|kyle> ah
04:17 <luke-jr> Lucifer: your irreligiousity I'm sure helped you get over your ex-wife :/
04:18 <luke-jr> sigh
04:18 <Lucifer> luke-jr: nah, her being a psycho helped a lot
04:18 <Lucifer> to be honest, I'm not convinced I'm over her completely
04:18 <luke-jr> well, my wife's a psycho yet I'm back to begging her to come home.
04:18 <Lucifer> just that I'm over the initial peak
04:18 <Lucifer> it's a stage
04:18 <Lucifer> got some money to buy a book?
04:18 <Lucifer> I'll even give you a handy amazon link :)
04:18 <luke-jr> it doesn't help that giving her up means celibacy for the rest of my life
04:19 <Lucifer> celibacy is probably best, really, heh
04:19 <Lucifer> anyway, I found reading a particular book and joining a divorce support group to be extremely helpful
04:19 <luke-jr> celibacy, for me, comes with anti-emotionalism :x
04:19 <Lucifer> of course, it's easier to find divorce support groups that are religion-based than it is to find some that aren't
04:19 <luke-jr> such a thing exists?
04:20 <Lucifer> anyway, the book I read (and browse through occasionally) really goes into detail on what to expect emotionally and how to cope with it
04:20 <Lucifer> yeah, there are support groups for everything
04:20 <Lucifer> I found mine through craigslist, but I'm sure google will work for you just as well
04:20 <Lucifer> it helps a lot to find "like minds" going through similar situations
04:20 <luke-jr> there are no like minds IMO
04:21 <Lucifer> http://www.amazon.com/Divorce-New-Beginnings-Co-Parenting-Stepfamilies/dp/0471326488/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1228965663&sr=8-1
04:21 <luke-jr> I really just have no choice but to get her back. :/
04:21 <Lucifer> then find a reasonable facsimile thereof
04:22 <Lucifer> look, the stages of grief that you go through when someone dies also apply to divorce
04:22 <luke-jr> for me, there are no "New Beginnings"
04:22 <Lucifer> and during the "bargaining stage" is when you want to get her back
04:22 <luke-jr> death is different in that regard
04:22 <Lucifer> but it is a stage, and you can get through it
04:22 <Lucifer> indeed, divorce is the single worst trauma a person can experience
04:23 <Lucifer> and it's harder for men than it is for women, apparently

04:23 <luke-jr> maybe I should take her by force
04:23 <Lucifer> newton's third law will bite you
04:24 <luke-jr> ?
04:24 <Lucifer> for every force, there is an equal and opposite force
04:24 <luke-jr> here's a new WTF:
04:25 <luke-jr> the MAX_CLIENTS 0 server I have is using more bandwidth than a regular rented server
04:25 <luke-jr> O.o
04:25 <luke-jr> Lucifer: well, maybe that opposite force will be somewhere far away from me
04:25 <Lucifer> what other toolkits do I know?  :/
04:26 <Lucifer> that's just wishful thinking.  If she doesn't want to come back, there's very little you can do
04:26 <Lucifer> really, I found that the time I spent thinking about all the ways I didn't like my wife really helped a lot :)
04:26 <Lucifer> make a list of things you like and things you don't like
04:26 <Lucifer> see which one's longer
04:27 <Lucifer> let's see, things I like about my ex-wife:
04:27 <Lucifer> 1.  Her boobs
04:27 <luke-jr> …
04:27 <ct|kyle> why does my college never schedule classes at reasonable times
04:27 <Lucifer> I think that's it
04:27 <Lucifer> yep, I'm pretty sure that's all I like about her
04:27 <Lucifer> I'm also pretty sure I don't have enough bandwidth to list thet hings I don't like about her
04:28 <ct|kyle> heh
04:28 <luke-jr> well even if sex was the only thing on my 'like about her' list, it also weighs pretty high since it is irreplacable
04:28 <Lucifer> there's a lot to be said for being celibate
04:29 <luke-jr> I don't even know if that's possible for me now.
04:29 <luke-jr> maybe back before she took my virginity.
04:29 <Lucifer> I would love to be able to go through life, seeing attractive women, and not having any interest at all
04:29 <luke-jr> I did that once upon a time
04:29 <luke-jr> but then I also looked upon love as disgusting
04:29 <Lucifer> I never have, heh
04:29 <luke-jr> and I couldn't raise kids thinking love is disgusting
04:29 <Lucifer> I wanted to marry my kindergarten teacher, she was freaking hot
04:30 <Lucifer> I never went through a stage where I thought girls were icky
04:30 <Lucifer> except fonkay
04:30 <luke-jr> I finally reluctantly admitted she was my girlfriend about a month before I married her.
04:30 <luke-jr> well, I don't think I considered *girls* icky
04:31 <luke-jr> rather, love, humans, sex, and emotional stuff in general
04:31 <Lucifer> nah, not me, never
04:31 <Lucifer> I wish there was a pill for that, seriously
04:32 <luke-jr> supposedly it's a disorder
04:32 <Lucifer> in fact, I'm going to have to say the reason I managed to stay married to that psycho for so long was because I loved the rollercoaster that our relationship was
04:32 <luke-jr> Schizoid Personaltiy Disorder
04:32 <luke-jr> there is a celibacy pill
04:32 <luke-jr> but it's not marketted as such
04:32 <Lucifer> you could just get your balls removed
04:32 <Lucifer> that's a tempting solution for me, but not quite tempting enough
04:33 <luke-jr> it's marketted for women for some kind of menstral thing
04:33 <Lucifer> there are other effects that I don't want ;)
04:33 <luke-jr> called 'chaste berry'
04:34 <luke-jr> anyhow, in my current condition, I literally cannot get anything done
04:35 <Lucifer> that's to be expected
04:35 <ct|kyle> how long has she been away
04:35 <Lucifer> you have to focus on paying the bills, and then just pick small things, small victories you can claim
04:35 <Lucifer> you want the cumulative effect of doing lots of small things
04:36 <Lucifer> you're UNIX, you want to do lots of little things really well and celebrate each one as its own victory
04:36  * Lucifer is working on his resume
04:36 <ct|kyle> like running it on a potato :P
04:36 <Lucifer> I looked at it today and realized why it hasn't helped me find a job
04:36 <Lucifer> it was terrible
04:36 <Lucifer> simply terrible
04:37 <Lucifer> also, get some exercise
04:37 <Lucifer> seriously, exercise
04:37 <Lucifer> take a martial arts class or something, something that only requires you to show up but doesn't require intense discipline (where working out solo requires intense discipline)
04:38  * Lucifer is going to take advantage of a free month from a tae kwon doe school, and if he's doing better financially in January, probably sign up

13:28 <hang3r> Wow, I decided to download the latest SVN version of armagetronad 3.0alpha, nice work guys, I actually cant even work out how to play the game, and I'm not exactly new to armagetron, mind you I haven't played in years. Just some constructive criticism for you all to think about
13:29 <hang3r> Joined a server "Sorry, you must play 2 mins blah blah blah", err no.
13:29 <hang3r> went into local game, "wow I'm watching bots now, how do I actually join my own local game?" ...
13:30 <hang3r> Do I have to press secret key combinations?
13:31 <hang3r> Seems so...
13:32 <hang3r> You may want to take a step back and KEEP IT SIMPLE!
13:39 <z-man-work> hang3r: which server was that?
13:44 <akira_arma> yea simplcism was always the major feat of tron

14:00 <hang3r> z-man-work, I can't remember which server it was. I take it that wasn't typical behaviour then?
14:00 <z-man-work> indeed.
14:00 <teabot> armacommits: [0.2.8-armagetronad-work] r952 Avoiding unwanted negative boosts.... || [0.2.8-armagetronad-work] r951 Avoiding division by zero when breaking from a wall and CYCL...
14:00 <z-man-work> The server uses a rarely used setting which seems to have an undesired side effect.
14:00 <z-man-work> When you restart the game, can you play then?
14:01 <z-man-work> Or do you have to enter the player setup and disable spectator mode?
14:01 <hang3r> No, I needed to disable spectator mode, I was just making you aware of the first perspective of someone new to AA
14:03 <hang3r> *How do I join* *How do I ask the other players how I join* *I can't find the chat key* *I cant find the key setup page*
14:04 <hang3r> etc
14:04 <hang3r> That was my line of thought
14:06 -!- Monkey_arma [n=Monkey@unaffiliated/monkeyarma] has joined #armagetron
14:06 <epsy> single player walkthrough may help with that, but for now, I don't have a clue
14:07 <hang3r> Not having a go at armagetron, I just felt like having a game (haven't played in over a year), downloaded and compiled the latest trunk from SVN at sourceforge, attempted to play and felt really lost
14:10 <hang3r> feedback is good, any new player at that stage would have almost given up, "too hard, plenty of other games, can't be bothered".
14:18 <z-man-work> hang3r: I can't reproduce the problem. If I enable the setting that doesn't allow you to play without experience on a server, enter it with lack of experience, then leave and start a local game, I play immediately.
14:19 <z-man-work> I suspect you must have instinctively (or my accident) pressed the "toggle spectator" key.
14:29 <epsy> "configure: error: conditional "AMDEP" was never defined."
14:29 <epsy> huh?
14:40 <epsy> happens in latest .2.8
14:48 <z-man-work> Odd, it's something automake does automatically. Don't ask me.
14:49 <epsy> and of course make distclean wants to run ./configure :(
14:54 <epsy> hmm; be back later

18:45 <ct|kyle> ya
18:45 <ct|kyle> sinewav: z-man fixed the bug that your server had :)
18:48 <sinewav> The incam bug? Sweet. Actually, I'm working on the racing server right now. Incam only, no shooting!
18:48 <sinewav> old skool
18:48 <sinewav> ;}
18:48 <ct|kyle> cool
18:48 <epsy> no "brake"-boosting?
18:48 <sinewav> brake = accel
18:49 <epsy> :(
18:49 <sinewav> well, I may do something like that later though!
18:50 <epsy> what sucks about race in armagetron is that it has litterally nothing to do with the game
18:50 <epsy> i mean, nothing from the original game is used, only newly implemented tactics made just for the race server
18:51 <BabyBug> Perhaps if you want to get more people playing arma though, you need more variation?
18:51 <epsy> is the goal of the project to have many players?
18:52 <epsy> the goal is to help people have fun in a game simillar to the lightcycles from the movie tron
18:52 <sinewav> No, I think arma is perfect. I see my race server as a sort of art project.
18:52 <sinewav> I mean YES
18:53 <sinewav> I consider racing a diversion
18:53 <epsy> this includes: walls make you accelerate, and when you hit a wall you die
18:53 <epsy> to achieve stuff you gotta kill stuff
18:53 <sinewav> touching walls is for noobs
18:53 <epsy> this is what arma is meant to be
18:53 <sinewav> I agree
18:54 <epsy> (oh, and to kill stuff you gotta have them run in your wall, of course)
18:54 <epsy> now, let's apply this to a race server
18:54 <epsy> in a race server, players should not interact
18:54 <BabyBug> Does rubber have any relevance to the tron movie?
18:54 <sinewav> haha
18:54 <epsy> so they aren't going to grind off other people's tail

18:58 <epsy> [18:55] <epsy>: BabyBug, No.
18:58 <sinewav> <--agrees with epsy, but insistes that his racing server is more of an art project and not a serious alternative to arma.
18:58 <BabyBug> ah, so it's there purely to sort lag?
18:58 <epsy> erm, fortress isn't an alternative to arma
18:58 <epsy> BabyBug, originally
18:59 <epsy> sinewav, have you looked at some quake-based gmae's race maps?
18:59 <epsy> some quake-base games' *
18:59 <sinewav> I don't know what quake is, sorry
19:00 <epsy> it's one of the predicators of the FPS genre
19:00 <sinewav> like doom?
19:00 <epsy> yeah
19:00 -!- K-Yo [n=K-Yo@unaffiliated/k-yo] has joined #armagetron
19:01 <sinewav> are the race maps cool or lame?
19:01 <epsy> depends on the games, and on the maps themselves
19:01 <epsy> somes are really awesome, and yet, you still have to use regular movement techniques
19:01 <BabyBug> So when arma gonna have the abilty to have multiple floors on a map =D
19:01 <BabyBug> when is*
19:01  * sinewav hardly knows anything about video games :(
19:02 <epsy> so you can have art'ish maps while keeping normal playing techniques
19:02 <epsy> BabyBug, probably not going to have that
19:02 <BabyBug> awwwww that sucks
19:03 <BabyBug> bikes that jump?
19:03 <sinewav> so, could arma-racing be cool if the cycles had walls? because I was thinking about that too...
19:03 <epsy> never, and that's 100% sure

19:03 <epsy> no, as said earlier, two racing players should not interact
19:03 <sinewav> oh yeah...
19:04 <BabyBug> So no jumping bikes...No multiple floors...What actually is planned in terms of improving game play? =D
19:04 <sinewav> Well anyway, my race server is a failure. I just keep it up to look at.
19:04 <epsy> BabyBug, proper gametype handling
19:05 <ct|kyle> at least it has better maps than dd
19:05 <BabyBug> epsy, meaning.....
19:05 <epsy> BabyBug, adding gametypes!
19:05 <epsy> and have them look hawt
19:05 <BabyBug> There's already different gametypes ><
19:05 <epsy> nope
19:06 <BabyBug> what do you call fortress...sumo...ctf...etc etc...
19:06 <epsy> fortress and sumo are based on stuff that is considered as hacks
19:06 <epsy> and you don't have any notion of gametype in arma
19:06 <sinewav> kyle: yeah, my maps took sevral days to make, not sevral minutes!
19:06 <epsy> ctf etc etc are server hacks
19:07 <epsy> did you ever play ctf in armagetron? there are barely circles represending flags and bases
19:07 <epsy> representing*
19:07 <epsy> do you think that looks any good, and has a little more value than a hack?
19:08 <BabyBug> looks good no...But looking good doesn't improve game play imo

19:11 <BabyBug> You're missing the point completely...I talking from the perspective of someone who's playing tron, don't care how it's implemented as long as it's there.

19:38 <luke-jr> the problem is most designers try to implement too
19:38 <luke-jr> and do a crappy job at implementing
19:38 <BabyBug> implement?
19:38 <luke-jr> making it HTML/CSS/etc
19:39 <BabyBug> oo
19:39 <luke-jr> implementation, I can definately do good :þ
19:40 -!- PinkTomato [n=sam@hn-33-24.brookes.ac.uk] has quit ["Leaving."]
19:40 <luke-jr> I just need a design to implement.
19:40 <luke-jr> btw, did you hear they got an organic port of Linux booting on a potato?
19:40 <luke-jr> http://www.bbspot.com/News/2008/12/linux-on-a-potato.html
19:41 <epsy> yeah, it's the same guys that made it work on a thunderstorm
19:41 <luke-jr> epsy: omfg rly⁈
19:41 <epsy> yeah, but the uptimes sucked
19:41 <luke-jr> lol
19:42 <luke-jr> hmm
19:42  * luke-jr ponders <.<
19:42 <epsy> haha luke :D
19:43 <luke-jr> would anyone kill me if I added a major feature to Arma and didn't release the code? XD
19:43 <epsy> as long as you don't release the binary it's legally fine
19:43  * luke-jr is thinking AJAX client
19:43 <luke-jr> allow people to play in their browser on servers I host :o
19:44 <luke-jr> hrm
19:44 <luke-jr> I don't think it would justify the time put into it
19:45 <BabyBug> you would what..have a whole 5 users? =P
19:45 <epsy> I think that's locking in to bad technologies
19:45 <luke-jr> lol epsy
19:45 <luke-jr> AJAX is here to stay
19:45 <epsy> HTTP is too slow for that
19:45 <epsy> it is, but networked AJAX arcade games are probably not going to work out well
19:46 <luke-jr> yeah
19:46 <luke-jr> maybe Java
19:46 <luke-jr> but that'd be even more work
19:46 <epsy> but remember that almost every computer out there can run java
19:46 <luke-jr> that's why I said maybe Java
19:46 <luke-jr> :þ
19:47 <ct|kyle> java sucks
19:47 <epsy> and by computer I mean everything that has a process unit
19:47 <epsy> but java sux :(
19:47 <luke-jr> ActiveX!
19:47 <ct|kyle> lol

19:48 <luke-jr> btw, did you hear Google reinvented ActiveX for Chrome
19:48 <epsy> wtf does that even mean?
19:48 <luke-jr> they basically did the same thing and called it something else
19:48 <luke-jr> now they're pushing it like it's the hot new thing
19:48 <luke-jr> Native Browsing or something along those lines
19:48 <epsy> like, wtf?
19:48 <luke-jr> webpages are EXEs
19:49 <epsy> how are they going to make it work on osx and linux?
19:49 <epsy> moreover, how aren't they going to be sued by microsoft?
19:49 <luke-jr> who cares?
19:49 <epsy> me?
19:49 <luke-jr> Google doesn't care about OSX and Linux
19:50 <luke-jr> http://code.google.com/p/nativeclient/
19:50 <luke-jr> apparently it does support Linux and Mac
19:50 <luke-jr> wtf
19:51 <epsy> their quake demo will be obsoleted :P
19:52 <epsy> luke-jr, it's python

19:52 <epsy> http://nativeclient.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/nacl/googleclient/native_client/documentation/getting_started.html
19:52 <luke-jr> you mean there's python scripts
19:53 <luke-jr> irrelevant
19:53 <epsy> I guess their stuff are python scripts
19:53 <luke-jr> test stuff*

22:10 <Ady-Lucifer> is it like playing arma on café just that at prearranged  times?
22:10 <Monkey_arma> Yeh it's a tough one. I thought for while then realised it was about matches....that are organised. I read the introduction and it said that they are regular. I deduced from this that they are ....regular, organised matches
22:11 <Ady-Lucifer> Interesting, more than that i'd  like to know if the community would like to make another international competition like 2 years ago, in which a team is a country
22:11 <Monkey_arma> There is also sagelord's idea
22:11 <Monkey_arma> which is:
22:12 <Monkey_arma> http://wiki.armagetronad.net/index.php?title=Competition_Hub
22:12 <Monkey_arma> The top one in that
22:12 <Monkey_arma> if you want to edit the wiki, btw, the answer to the question it will ask you, about what colour the cycle is, is "red"
22:12 <Ady-Lucifer> its basically another ladle

22:25 <TaZ_> =D
22:25 <luke-jr> that is one thing I dislike about C

22:26 <SageLord-uni> i don't really have much to compare C to

22:26 <TaZ_> ah
22:27 <luke-jr> hey
22:27 <TaZ_> what
22:27 <luke-jr> I just thought of a nice little idea for C

22:27 <luke-jr> using the stack for a list XD
22:27 <epsy> what does better mean? :P
22:27 <luke-jr> it would need to be the last thing in the scope, and couldn't be changed inside new scopes

22:28 <luke-jr> actually, better example:
22:28 <luke-jr> char buf[256];
22:28 <Ady-Lucifer> it charges a buffalo at 256 pounds
22:29 <luke-jr> /kick Ady-Lucifer
22:29 <luke-jr> epsy: so? what does that do? :þ
22:29 <TaZ_> lolz
22:29 <SageLord-uni> hha
22:29 <epsy> well, that gives enough memory for putting 256 latin9 characters in buf
22:29 <luke-jr> epsy: memory where?
22:30 <epsy> in the freaking ram?!
22:30 <luke-jr> ROFL
22:30 <TaZ_> lol
22:30 <luke-jr> it's not malloc'd
22:30 <SageLord-uni> hahaha
22:31 <luke-jr> each thread has what is called a stack
22:31 <luke-jr> which is basically a chunk of memory
22:31  * SageLord-uni is looking at a malloc/calloc powerpoint slide now
22:31 <luke-jr> that holds info about what functions are running
22:31 <TaZ_> haha
22:31 <luke-jr> inside what, etc
22:31 <epsy> ah, scopes?
22:31 <luke-jr> it also holds scoped variables
22:31 <SageLord-uni> hmm, i'm sleepy
22:32 <SageLord-uni> maybe i'll sleep through my exam
22:32 <TaZ_> SageLord-uni, join my clan.
22:32 <SageLord-uni> that sounds nice
22:32 <TaZ_> xD
22:32 <SageLord-uni> lol?
22:32 <SageLord-uni> what clan
22:32 <luke-jr> so bascially, 'char buf[256];' moves the stack pointer back 256 bytes, and the compiler refers to that position of the stack as 'buf'
22:32 <fonkay> Lucifer: Me being icky, or you thinking I am?
22:32 <TaZ_> VcL
22:32 <SageLord-uni> i'm in a clan already, but just curious what clan
22:32 <SageLord-uni> ah
22:32 <luke-jr> TaZ_: wtf, you have a server with me? :þ
22:32 <epsy> @tea

22:33 <SageLord-uni> cool :)
22:33 <luke-jr> liar
22:33 <SageLord-uni> what does that do, find the server with the most people on irc?
22:33 <luke-jr> no
22:33 <epsy> need moar players for a nice split screenshot
22:33 <luke-jr> it's tea
22:33 <SageLord-uni> huh?
22:33 <luke-jr> #si -v lightfoot
22:33 <epsy> which is there for fortress café, obviousely
22:33 <armabot> luke-jr: Lightfoot Hosting Demo Server (UK) ( running 0.2.8_alpha20080122 unix dedicated, url: http://lightfoot.dashjr.org/demo.php, Description: “Web control panel password is 'demo'“, Players (0/4):
22:34 <TaZ_> yea luk
22:34 <TaZ_> luke-jr
22:34 <SageLord-uni> taz, do you play fortress?
22:34 <TaZ_> Yes
22:34 <SageLord-uni> you should sign up for fortress brawl
22:34 <SageLord-uni> its a new tournament
22:34  * luke-jr builds a fortress on TaZ_'s chinny chin chin
22:34 <TaZ_> Ilinky link?
22:34 <TaZ_> :>
22:34 <luke-jr> TaZ_: your clan's server uses a lot of bandwidth
22:35 <SageLord-uni> http://twisted-rats.co.cc/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=47
22:35 <TaZ_> I play all servers though
22:35 <luke-jr> 312 MB in the past day or two
22:35 <SageLord-uni> actually
22:35 <SageLord-uni> http://twisted-rats.co.cc/brawl
22:35 <SageLord-uni> is a better link
22:35 <TaZ_> ooo, you're in that clan..
22:35 <TaZ_> :D
22:35 <SageLord-uni> yup yup
22:35 <luke-jr> SageLord-uni: Twisted Rats should reactivate their servers :x
22:35 <SageLord-uni> hmm?
22:35 <luke-jr> appa and xfroggy got servers w/ me
22:35 <luke-jr> then discontinued them
22:35 <luke-jr> :/
22:35 <SageLord-uni> how much does it cost
22:36 <TaZ_> :/
22:36 <luke-jr> http://lightfoot.dashjr.org/
22:36 <luke-jr> tho I am considering a bandwidth-based plan
22:37 <TaZ_> Thanks SageLord-uni
22:37 <SageLord-uni> hmm
22:37 <SageLord-uni> i might look into that, idk if i have the funds to spend on a server per month like that
22:37 <SageLord-uni> i'll talk to durka/goody to see if they might want to go halvsies/thirdsies
22:37 <SageLord-uni> we'll see
22:38 <TaZ_> And btw luke-jr, Pinktomatos loved my server idea.
22:38 <SageLord-uni> hmm, taz?
22:38 <TaZ_> I was saying thanks for the link
22:39 <SageLord-uni> oh np, hopefully thanks for signing up :P
22:39 <TaZ_> :P
22:39 <SageLord-uni> eventually at least :)
22:39 <SageLord-uni> i don't know the ins and outs of servers and how to run them yet
22:39 <SageLord-uni> nor do i know admin commands and such and such etc
22:39 <SageLord-uni> i'll do some reading this christmas
22:40 <TaZ_> The wiki tells you everything
22:40 <luke-jr> SageLord-uni: yeah, part of why I'm thinking about a bandwidth-based plan
22:40 <SageLord-uni> yes, but i haven't read it
22:40 <luke-jr> so it'd be maybe $10 up front setup cost, and after that you deposit however much you want
22:40 <SageLord-uni> hmm all right
22:41 <luke-jr> and if the balance goes to 0 it turns off the server
22:41 <SageLord-uni> did you figure out what happened to your server for the ladle?
22:41 <luke-jr> dunno, the config I guess
22:41 <luke-jr> happened to other servers w/ the same config I heard
22:41 <luke-jr> and stuff is fine w/ other servers I host
22:41 <SageLord-uni> hmm interesting
22:41 <SageLord-uni> all right
22:42 <luke-jr> Durka should find the bug his config triggers :þ
22:42 <SageLord-uni> like ww?
22:42 <luke-jr> dunno, was it WW?
22:42 <SageLord-uni> hmm, all right
22:42 <luke-jr> I really didn't do anything with the Ladle
22:42 <SageLord-uni> haha, yea i guess :p
22:42 <SageLord-uni> maybe, not sure
22:42 <luke-jr> Durka just asked me last minute to use the server
22:42 <luke-jr> XD
22:46 <SageLord-uni> TaZ_: does vcl have its own forum?
22:46 <TaZ_> Yes
22:46 <TaZ_> vclclan.com
22:47 <TaZ_> Please register. :)
22:47 <SageLord-uni> are there several fortress players in your clan?
22:47 <SageLord-uni> of course :)
22:48  * luke-jr never understood the obsession with registrations for forums

22:59 <luke-jr> hm, possible problem if I move to a metered solution :o
23:00 <luke-jr> people are less apt to volunteer their servers for events like the Ladle and such
23:00 <SageLord-uni> yea thats true
23:00 <SageLord-uni> i'm ready to get this exam over with
23:00 <luke-jr> maybe I should price it so I can do stuff like "Ladle sponsors get $5 credit"
23:00 <SageLord-uni> then i can do absolutely nothing
23:01 <luke-jr> or smth
23:01 <SageLord-uni> 16:00	luke-jr	people are less apt to volunteer their servers for events like the Ladle and such
23:01 <SageLord-uni> well
23:01 <SageLord-uni> it depends i think
23:01 -!- PinkTomato [n=sam@hn-33-24.brookes.ac.uk] has joined #armagetron
23:01 <SageLord-uni> if their server isn't well known, and they are paying by bandwidth
23:01 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: what do you think
23:01 <SageLord-uni> they might JUST use it for ladles and competitions
23:01 <SageLord-uni> that way they pay less than normal costs
23:02 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: is pricing by bandwidth a threat to events like the Ladle?
23:02 <luke-jr> SageLord-uni: true
23:02 <SageLord-uni> it could be a good way to get more servers for competitions
23:02 <SageLord-uni> but in that way, you wouldn't make as much money lol
23:02 <luke-jr> :/
23:02 <BabyBug> \o/
23:02 <luke-jr> well, I suppose worst case I can just up my prices a little and offer incentives to hosting events
23:02 <SageLord-uni> :)
23:03 <luke-jr> but then I need to define a criteria for what qualifies as an event
23:03 <luke-jr> or I'll get "clan war!" events all the time
23:03 <SageLord-uni> haha
23:03 <TaZ_> lol
23:03 <SageLord-uni> i think events are pretty standard
23:03 <PinkTomato> luke-jr: are you removing completely the the current player model?
23:03 <luke-jr> maybe they need to be open to all players, not just a set group(s)
23:03 <SageLord-uni> things that take a while to organize, i don't think you should include clan wars in your model
23:03 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: not planning to, no
23:03 <SageLord-uni> but idk
23:04 <luke-jr> I really probably shouldn't spend any more time on the bandwidth model until I hear it will improve business.
23:04 <PinkTomato> maybe you could do sponser a server for events
23:04 <SageLord-uni> haha
23:04 <luke-jr> I can't afford to waste time on stuff that won't bring in anything
23:04 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: ?
23:05 <PinkTomato> Like a 1-2 day server, for like $5 for the event
23:05 <luke-jr> well, the bandwidth-based stuff would ideally allow customers to have any number of servers and slots
23:05 <SageLord-uni> don't you think $5 is too steep of a price for that?
23:05 <PinkTomato> actualyl yeah probably :)
23:05 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: once, I had AFL-specific packages
23:06 <PinkTomato> well maybe you could inclue 1/2 week before
23:06 <luke-jr> $16 got the smallest AFL package
23:06 <PinkTomato> and then the purchaser could use it for practice
23:06 <luke-jr> including all home games and 5 practice games
23:06 <SageLord-uni> hmm
23:06 <luke-jr> I get the feeling I just need to reduce my prices somehow
23:06 <TaZ_> :/
23:06 <luke-jr> the numbers look too big
23:07 <luke-jr> maybe instead of a $10 setup fee, $5 setup + $1 setup per server
23:07 <luke-jr> hmm
23:08 <PinkTomato> non-peak time discount?
23:08 <luke-jr> well, that doesn't make the numbers smaller
23:09 <luke-jr> 2 cents per MB is pretty small
23:09 <luke-jr> leaving the setup fee the big #
23:09 <PinkTomato> personally though, the possibly variance in fee, it would scare me to recieve a large bill
23:10 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: it would be strictly pre-pay
23:10 <luke-jr> when they hit $0 balance, the server shuts off
23:10 <luke-jr> until a deposit is made
23:10 <luke-jr> so nobody would ever get a large bill :þ
23:10 <PinkTomato> ah a nice way of doing it :)
23:10 <luke-jr> and it would make donation-based efforts easier
23:10 <luke-jr> I could include a PayPal Donate button that made deposits directly
23:11 <SageLord-uni> thats cool
23:11 <SageLord-uni> for people that may want to donate for the server?
23:11 <luke-jr> yeah
23:12 <SageLord-uni> thats a good idea
23:12 <luke-jr> would probably have a hourly cronjob check balances
23:12 <luke-jr> if under $5 left, send an email and (optionally) announce in the server an estimated shutdown time
23:12 <luke-jr> if under $1 left, stop the server until a deposit is made
23:12 <luke-jr> (can't wait for flat $0 easily)
23:13 <luke-jr> actually, I could *probably* setup an iptables rule at the $1 marker, but that'd be pretty complex and not disconnect people gracefully
23:16 <luke-jr> hm
23:16 <luke-jr> aabeta going intermittant for maintenance!
23:17 <luke-jr> :þ
23:17 <PinkTomato> pay by hour?
23:18 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: eh?
23:18 <luke-jr> PinkTomato: no, it would just check balances every hour
23:18 <luke-jr> see which servers were low, which are getting turned off
23:18 <PinkTomato> no i mean a pay per hour server,
23:18 <luke-jr> O.o
23:18 <PinkTomato> a bit more expensive than other packages
23:18 <SageLord-uni> all right guys gotta go take my test, cya later
23:18 <luke-jr> seems pointless
23:18 <TaZ_> Good Luck
23:18 <TaZ_> Cya
23:18 <PinkTomato> nope
23:18 <SageLord-uni> thanks :)
23:19 <PinkTomato> I'm pretty sure some clans might want a private server for practice

23:51 <epsy> anyway, you should look into prepaid, I think some people may use it
