[00:00:34] <Armanelgtron> He approved me yes
[00:00:50] <Lucifer_arma> ok, so you have all the write permissions and shit?
[00:01:02] <Lucifer_arma> I would have said yes, had I actually been available at the time
[00:01:16] <Armanelgtron> I guess? I can bzr push :P
[00:01:51] <Lucifer_arma> ok, so when Aix_ comes asking more questions of me, I can tell him to ask you? ;)
[00:02:32] <Lucifer_arma> hey, do you know python? Does my "rewrite with panda3d" idea sound fun to you?
[00:06:00] <Armanelgtron> I guess I know python? I've made some pyqt stuff even though it was through that qt designer .ui py thing
[00:07:23] <Lucifer_arma> eh, python's pretty easy, really
[00:07:40] <Lucifer_arma> I remember you saying your C++ was pretty weak (I think "nonexistent" was the word you used)
[00:08:02] <Lucifer_arma> what is your language background? (My approval of Z-man's decision was predicated on your interest, not skill level :) )
[00:13:50] <Armanelgtron> Lucifer_arma: Well I know PHP/HTML/CSS/JS
[00:14:03] <Lucifer_arma> that's what I'm remembering
[00:14:19] <Lucifer_arma> you know PHP as an object-oriented language, or as primarily a procedural web-page building language?
[00:14:30] <Lucifer_arma> i.e. if you were to use php-cli, could you build an app with it?
[00:14:52] <Armanelgtron> Well I've used PHP in armagetron server scripting...does that help? LOL
[00:15:11] <Lucifer_arma> I ask because last time I did pro programming work, it was php as an object-oriented language, and i had to work with a guy who only knew it as a procedural language
[00:15:44] <Lucifer_arma> so he gave me a BS api that, frankly, didn't work, and I had to connect objects (complete with inheritance, and what passed for polymorphism in php4) to his crap
[00:16:07] <Lucifer_arma> so, when I use words like inheritance and polymorphism, do they have meaning for you?
[00:16:39] <Armanelgtron> Other than looking up the definition? I'm feeling like an idiot now lol
[00:16:46] <Lucifer_arma> don't worry about it
[00:17:15] <Lucifer_arma> when a certain character came along and gave us bar gauges for the HUD, I posed my "cockpit" idea to him
[00:17:35] <Lucifer_arma> he previously only had php scripting, with no OOP experience. Then wrtlprnft wrote the cockpit that's in 0.4.
[00:17:48] <Lucifer_arma> so I'm not judging, just trying to get a gauge on what you know :)
[00:21:19] <Lucifer_arma> luke-jr: reading these articles about the development of Sid Meier's Civilization, I'm tempted to fire up the emulator and play the original
[00:21:55] <Lucifer_arma> Armanelgtron: I may have a way to introduce you to more complex OOP concepts
[00:21:59] <Lucifer_arma> interested?
[00:22:04] <Armanelgtron> Sure I guess
[00:22:06] <Lucifer_arma> (yes, it'll be my game network library)
[00:22:38] <Lucifer_arma> I'll need a public key from you that you'll use to ssh into something
[00:22:46] <Lucifer_arma> and a promise that you won't sudo shit on this machine
[00:26:40] <Lucifer_arma> luke-jr: it's kind of entertaining to read about how the original civ had "diplomacy". I don't recall negotiating treaties with the AIs...
[00:31:30] <Lucifer_arma> This is the kind of shit on the forums that I'm moderating these days: Working Dating For Random Sexual congress or perfectly find someone Spot but at:
[00:31:43] <Lucifer_arma> I almost wish we could have someone attack us again just to relieve the monotony
[00:32:59] <Armanelgtron> I find it funny that spambots are the only users who seem to completely fill out their profiles...is it supposed to make them look more genuine or something?
[00:33:18] <Armanelgtron> And before even the first post?
[00:33:43] <Armanelgtron> Anyway, I'm probably going to go to bed soon
[00:39:11] <Armanelgtron> Say, why not get a better recaptcha?
[00:40:24] <Lucifer_arma> ask guru3 about that one
[00:40:41] <Lucifer_arma> you should still give me a public key that you can use with ssh
[00:40:47] <Lucifer_arma> PM it here or on the forums
[00:41:30] <Lucifer_arma> protip: ctrl-f10 in dosbox gives you back your mouse
[00:48:30] <Armanelgtron> Looks like my timezone on the forums is an hour behind now
[00:49:05] <Armanelgtron> Anyway, sent
[00:49:08] <Armanelgtron> @Lucifer_arma
[00:57:10] <Armanelgtron> So much for waiting until tomorrow; I went ahead and sent another one
[00:57:32] <Armanelgtron> Sorry lol

[16:40:32] <wrtlprnft> wow. I think this may be more conversation in one day than this channel has seen in the year before
[16:41:02] <Armanelgtron> Would you like MORE?!! :D
[16:42:23] <wrtlprnft> sure, why not? but I was about to go to bed, so it will have to happen without me ;-)
[18:56:37] <Lucifer_arma> 'twould be nice if this channel were a guaranteed conversation source again :)
