[03:20:17] <cloudshark> ^ 03- SoylentNews User ( https://soylentnews.org )
[03:20:46] <Byttam|away> the closing comment seems to be in bad taste, to me.
[03:20:50] <Byttam|away> "Seems she's missed the opportunity to do cool stuff like program in a meditation mode."
[03:21:02] <cmn32480> definetly
[03:21:13] <Byttam|away> any ideas for a replacement?
[03:21:20] <cmn32480> reading

[03:21:48] <Byttam|away> May have been programmed by idIOTs?
[03:22:26] <cmn32480> She doesn't have the heart to let it go?
[03:22:30] <Byttam|away> Please refrain on making comments about Larry and Curly.

[03:22:51] <cmn32480> I read it as fdrom
[03:23:02] <cmn32480> and I knew that fdrom was from
[03:23:07] <Byttam|away> I've heard of cdrom
[03:23:45] <Byttam|away> unless you got something better, I'd like to go with the three stooges comment
[03:23:52] <cmn32480> At least her heart is int eh right place?
[03:24:02] <Byttam|away> nah.
[03:24:09] <cmn32480> Go w/ it
[03:24:37] <Byttam|away> I may not be the best arbiter. Both my dad and an uncle had bypass surgery; mom had a vale replaced, and did not recover from the operation.

[03:24:47] <exec> <Byttam|away> I may not be the best arbiter. Both my dad and an uncle had bypass surgery; mom had a valve replaced, and did not recover from the operation.
[03:25:44] <cmn32480> I agree that the comment is out of line... if you want to leave that one, I can hand;e it
[03:26:26] <Byttam|away> yeah, I got that. was just pointing out that I may be biased and what others would consider fine might still set me off.

[17:17:32] <mrcoolbp> haha
[17:17:45] <cmn32480> that is what it said when I was editing it
[17:17:54] <cmn32480> still current
[17:17:54] * Bytram wishes he had a spare $50k -- would open up a VR Arcade and charge $60/hr to play.
[17:18:44] <nick> heh
[17:18:51] <nick> for $60/hr, you can count me out :p
[17:19:36] <cmn32480> @$20/hr you'd make back your $50k in 2500 hours....
[17:19:58] <Bytram> at how many hours a day, and rent, and electric, and cleaning (puke) and ....
[17:20:08] <Bytram> and labor for staff
[17:20:09] <cmn32480> 8 hours per day
[17:20:10] <Bytram> and profit
[17:20:27] <cmn32480> with one headset
[17:20:36] <cmn32480> 312.5 days
[17:20:51] <cmn32480> providing it is in use for all 8 hours
[17:21:02] <nick> need at least two headsets, then you can get some gambling side action in multiplayer games
[17:21:03] <Bytram> good point.
[17:21:26] <cmn32480> 4 headsets you are back even in 78 days
[17:21:26] <Bytram> would need at least 10 sets, if not 20.
[17:21:38] <Bytram> and, offer them for sale, too.
[17:22:03] <Bytram> assuming no delay between users handing off
[17:22:29] <Bytram> and no hardware problems/damage
[17:23:00] * Bytram remembers lining up quarters waiting to play 'Spy Hunter' back in the day.
[17:23:20] * nick never had an arcade growing up
[17:23:24] <nick> :(
[17:23:27] * cmn32480 vaguely recalls spyhunter on his 8086
[17:24:06] <Bytram> theme music was awesome!
[17:24:14] <Bytram> "Peter Gunn"
[17:24:32] <cmn32480> w/ 20 sets, you'ld be even on your initial $50k in under a week assuming a fulkl 8 hours of usage per day
[17:24:53] <cmn32480> assuming $20/hr
[17:26:11] <Bytram> would prolly have to factor in property lease cost, too
[17:26:12] <nick> you'd probably have a good chance of turning a profit in the first month, if it was popular
[17:26:26] <nick> after factoring lease and minions
[17:26:31] <cmn32480> I'm assuming return on the first $50k
[17:26:41] <cmn32480> this is not an ongoing business plan
[17:26:47] <nick> heh
[17:26:49] <Bytram> nod nod
[17:27:07] <nick> lot of variables, but i can see in some cities it being a very profitable concept
[17:27:15] <cmn32480> larger cities
[17:27:17] <cmn32480> NY
[17:27:19] <cmn32480> London
[17:27:24] <Bytram> or, the local shopping mall
[17:27:36] <Bytram> note to self: do NOT set up near food court.

[17:43:49] <cmn32480> anybody have thoughts on the credit card sub? currently sitting at #3 from Runaway
[17:48:56] <nick> i was going to do it yesterday, but my reading brain got sleepy
[17:48:59] <nick> i need to refresh
[17:49:19] <nick> more interested to see the google results for Michael David Crawford...
[17:51:10] <nick> its a very interesting story
[18:01:18] <nick> the whole sub is a copy/paste from what i see, it's from foxnews but they seem to be the ones that did the work on it.

[21:21:15] <nick> looking for something better...
[21:21:40] <cmn32480> finally able to link up?
[21:23:11] <nick> as someone who knows nothing about zelda, i assume thats something
[21:23:15] <cmn32480> I haven't played a Zelda game in 20 years... I I wasn't a big fan back then
[21:23:26] <cmn32480> I think Link was the main character

[21:25:02] <nick> lol
[21:46:37] <nick> i've done it now
[21:47:34] <nick> i changed the source article, because the sub was derivative and less informative in my opinion
