[02:34:05] <NCommander> paulej72, you've been waiting for me? Er, shit.
[02:34:09] <NCommander> #didntknowthat
[02:37:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> NCommander, patiently though. no big rush with only two devs deving on dev.
[02:38:11] <Bytram> and a half-pint-in-training
[02:38:41] <TheMightyBuzzard> nod nod, and a bytram who gets his official dev badge soon as he writes some perl. =P
[02:38:56] <Bytram> you trying to scare me away or what?
[02:39:08] * TheMightyBuzzard waves a regex at Bytram
[02:39:33] * Bytram scans it, and rejects it as non matching
[02:39:57] <takyon> #WhoIsNCommander?
[02:40:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> speaking of matches. ima go light one and poke it at the end of a cigarette.
[02:40:25] <Bytram> lol
[03:05:04] <NCommander> Bytram, you've done CSS and HTML stuff, you count in my book, plus you QA it
[03:05:32] <Bytram> from you, that means a LOT! thanks!
[03:06:01] * Bytram has done a bit of submissions, too. still getting my feet wet, but am prolly past my ankles by now!
[03:06:12] <Bytram> *code submissions
[03:07:52] <TheMightyBuzzard> Bytram, dive in man. you got folks here glad to help ya out if you get stuck.
[03:09:36] <Bytram> the one downside, and I've seen it many times on the story side of things, is that after a while everything looks like 'word soup' (or code soup) and it takes another pair of eyes to take a hard look a the code to find the mistakes
[03:10:19] <Bytram> if I'm in there coding stuff, my QA/Test skills are not going to be available. May need to draft cmn or crutchee to pinch hit on testing.
[03:10:25] <TheMightyBuzzard> i always keep a bag of spare semicolons handy for when i'm coding.
[03:10:47] <TheMightyBuzzard> oooh, if you can get crutchy more power to ya. we been trying for ages.
[03:11:03] <Bytram> ack! /me remembers his days coding in lisp... semicolons are nothing compared to matching up parens in a dumb editor
[03:12:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> that too, yep.
[03:13:27] <Bytram> got some trivia for ya. Do you know where lisp's CAR and CDR come from?
[03:14:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> not a clue
[03:14:53] <Bytram> This may be apocryphal, but I was taught it was: Contents of the Address Register (CAR) and Contents of the Data Register (CDR)
[03:15:19] <TheMightyBuzzard> makes sense
[03:15:39] <Bytram> lisp being essentially a bunch of nested linked lists, the physical implementation kind of follows from there
[03:15:57] <Bytram> (with effects being performed on the returned values)
[04:09:29] Bytram is now known as Bytram|away
