[02:57:31] <Bytram> #fite Loggie
[02:57:31] <MrPlow> #fite spam going to channel #fite
[02:57:43] <MrPlow> #fite Loggie falls broken at Bytram's feet.
[03:08:03] <Fnord666> #fite Bytram
[03:08:22] <Fnord666> #fite Bytram
[03:08:22] <MrPlow> #fite I'm sorry, Dave, I can't do that.
[03:08:25] <Bytram> gee, thanks. I'll be gone within 5 secs
[03:08:35] <Bytram> gone == killed
[03:08:43] <Fnord666> Don't leave on my account
[03:08:56] <Fnord666> Why the HAL response?
[03:09:12] <Bytram> beats me!
[03:09:41] <Bytram> I didn't mean that I was personally leaving, but instead that I had already hadf a battle and lost a buncha points -- I'd now be easy prey
[03:10:02] <Fnord666> #fite Bytram
[03:10:02] <MrPlow> #fite I'm sorry, Dave, I can't do that.
[03:10:25] <Fnord666> That's what I was hoping for. You should be down to where it's an even match maybe.
[03:10:30] <Bytram> really, I have absolutely *NO* idea why it is doing that!
[03:10:47] <Bytram> huh? I thought you had much bucko hit points?
[03:11:08] <Bytram> ahhh, I had you confused with FatPhl
[03:11:14] <Bytram> nvm
[03:11:41] <chromas> Some nicks are blacklisted so they don't get dinged
[03:11:45] <Bytram> still, you'd prolly be better off with one of the others that have only 11 hitpoints, I'd think. see: https://sylnt.us
[03:11:47] <exec> └─ 13#fite Scoreboard
[03:14:53] <Bytram> yep, even after that last battle I still have 19 hit points -- there are many others with just 11 or 12

[03:34:30] <MrPlow> #fite spam going to channel #fite
[03:34:40] <MrPlow> #fite charon falls broken at Fnord666's feet.
[03:37:58] <charon> bastard
[03:39:04] <charon> at least i hit you once
[03:43:30] <Fnord666> you did
[03:44:06] <Fnord666> And you had a couple more HP than me
[03:44:28] <charon> you bully
[03:44:41] <Fnord666> Lol
[03:53:54] <charon> Fnord666: you still here?
[03:54:46] <Fnord666> yup
[03:55:34] <charon> the story bytram put up about systemd is a dupe. i don't want to, but i think i should pull it
[03:57:12] <cmn32480> if it is a dupe, pull it
[03:57:29] <cmn32480> put a link to the dupe in the ditorial commetns, and set it to no display
[03:57:34] <cmn32480> charon ^^
[03:57:45] <charon> aye aye
[03:58:00] <Fnord666> I seem to recall some discussion earlier today about that story in the main channel.
[03:59:08] * cmn32480 doenst'w anna read backscroll
[03:59:22] <charon> don't blame you
[03:59:23] <Fnord666> But not about it being a dupe, just whether it was relevant anymore or not.
[03:59:26] <cmn32480> especially in # or #soylent
[03:59:35] <Fnord666> Understandable
[03:59:55] <cmn32480> only time I look at the backscroll in #soylent is when I been pinged
[04:00:25] <charon> i'm going to ping you in test every day
[04:00:46] <cmn32480> have at it
[04:01:05] <cmn32480> you have no idea if I'm actually there in my client, or just in ZNC
[04:01:17] <Fnord666> for a minute there I though you said testes
[04:01:34] <cmn32480> if he is gonna ping my testes he better buy me dinner first
[04:01:52] <chromas> !grab Bender
[04:01:52] <Bender> I don't know what Bender said, so I can't quote them!
[04:01:55] <chromas> !grab cmn32480
[04:01:55] <Bender> Added quote 47
[04:02:11] <charon> chromas lives for this doesn't he?
[04:02:17] <cmn32480> yep
[04:02:25] <cmn32480> that's about all chromas is good for some days
[04:03:56] * cmn32480 tries to decide if he is loading up Star Wars Battlegrounds or Command Nad Conquer
[04:04:11] <cmn32480> or maybe just go to bed
[04:04:52] <charon> i am not going to conquer your nads
[04:05:13] <cmn32480> I've been a fan of RTS games for a long time
[04:06:41] <charon> i haven't played one since i got bored with SC 2
[04:06:56] <cmn32480> SC2?
[04:07:16] <charon> starcraft
[04:07:18] <charon> 2
[04:07:22] <cmn32480> galactic Battlegrounds came out 2003?ish I think
[04:07:27] <cmn32480> oh duh
[04:07:34] <cmn32480> oddly enough.. one I never played
[04:07:59] <charon> it was not as pleasing as the first for whatever reason.
[04:08:26] <Fnord666> charon - do you play mobas like DOTA?
[04:08:52] <charon> i never have. i suspect they would be too complicated for my feeble and aging brain
[04:11:05] <Fnord666> I tried one of them but the online environment was so toxic that I chose not to pursue it.
[04:12:13] <charon> oh, i can see that too. the stereotype of the jerk shouting into his microphone about how much you suck
[04:13:52] <Fnord666> Except the foul mouthed jerk is likely as not 12 years old.
[04:14:57] <charon> yeah, not really interested in that sort of atmosphere
[04:15:18] <Fnord666> When someone whose voice hasn't dropped yet is telling you that you suck so bacd you should kill yourself?
[04:15:54] <Fnord666> Me neither.
[04:16:19] <cmn32480> I don't play online
[04:16:25] <cmn32480> I enjoy them agains tthe AI
[04:16:34] <cmn32480> too many assholes online
[04:16:39] * cmn32480 looks around
[04:16:43] * charon raises his hand
[04:16:48] <cmn32480> present company excepted, of course
[04:16:58] <Fnord666> of courese.
[04:17:19] <charon> i never talk, and rarely even listen to voice chat in games
[04:17:46] <Fnord666> The only time I play online is the Call Of Duty series. About 10 or 12 people at work all play in a private match each week.
[04:18:01] <Fnord666> We've been playing since the SOCOM days on the PS2
[04:18:41] <Fnord666> First command to learn in a new online game: How to mute all other players.
[04:19:15] <Fnord666> cmn32480 - fortunately game AI has gotten better.
[04:19:57] <Fnord666> Early warcraft or starcraft the AI was too easy to beat (unless it cheated)
[04:20:53] <Fnord666> Starcraft I think was just doing something new where they were making an API available that would be essentially what a normal player sees and can do.
[04:21:19] <Fnord666> It was to allow others to develop their own AIs and compete in tournaments.
[04:21:31] <Fnord666> Starcraft 2 that is.
[04:21:33] <charon> instead of the "cheating bastard" AI
[04:22:07] <Fnord666> Some AIs are just programmed with greater game or board knowledge than a player gets.
[04:22:20] <charon> that knows everything, has no fog of war, and can click much faster than a human
[04:22:40] <Fnord666> Fog of War is a very common place where you see this, yes.
[04:23:22] <Fnord666> Plus the API will allow everyone competing to be on equal footing without having to release or reveal internal workings of the game.
[04:25:42] <Fnord666> There used to be a game called CRobots where you programmed your robot's logic in a reduced set of the C programming language. The arena provided function calls for whatever you wanted to do and your robot acted or reacted according to your code.
[04:25:58] <Fnord666> Then you dumped two or more into an arena.
[04:28:47] <charon> to see which one exploded first?
[04:29:32] <charon> sweet revenge!
[04:29:49] <Fnord666> More or less. Each had weapons, radar, movement, etc.
[04:30:50] <Fnord666> WEre you monitoring the channel?
[04:30:57] <Fnord666> Lol
[04:31:08] * Fnord666 bows ever so slightly to charon
[04:31:27] <charon> nah, just happened to see activity and looked in
[04:33:45] <Fnord666> So here's an interesting "theory" if you follow the Star Wars universe. Goof for a chuckle anyway.

[04:34:36] <charon> darth jar jar!
[04:35:46] <Fnord666> Jar Jar Binks is Supreme Leader Snoke!
[04:35:58] <Fnord666> Yo uheard it here first.
[04:36:27] <Fnord666> It's a nice little write up anyway.
[04:37:14] <Fnord666> Meesa no kill your father, Luke. Meesa is your father.
[04:37:16] <charon> it is a very clever theory. lots of supporting evidence behind it
[04:40:01] <Fnord666> Time will tell, maybe.
[05:24:10] <Fnord666> Good night #editorial
[05:24:23] <Fnord666> Time to get some sleep.
