[00:01:02] <Bytram> mebee get 3 IPv4s and divide by 2?
[00:01:29] <chromas> I could disable 6 but if I do that then the terrorists win
[00:01:33] <Bytram> 'sock' it to 'em?
[00:01:47] <Bytram> what do they win?
[00:02:01] <Bytram> chromas: s/win/whine/
[00:02:03] <exec> <Bytram> <chromas> I could disable 6 but if I do that then the terrorists whine
[00:02:03] <chromas> soylent karma
[00:02:49] <Bytram> lol... I have da power! I could cancel all karma if I so wanted. <laughter type="evil" />
[00:03:12] <Bytram> well, I could do it once, at least.
[00:03:52] <chromas> You could give yourself extra privileges
[00:04:06] <chromas> and sneak in a 'back door' for when the supervisor finds out
[00:04:09] <chromas> joshua
[00:04:32] <Bytram> that'd be a real wopr of an idea, no?
[00:04:53] <chromas> Put X in the center square
[00:05:23] * chromas suspects the starting position doesn't affect the game at all
[00:06:06] * Bytram suspects chromas' suspicions
[00:06:44] * chromas blames the lockout changes button that never gets mentioned in the movie even though they show it blinking later
[00:07:09] <Bytram> they were locked out from it, duh!
[00:07:32] <chromas> yeah but they didn't seem to know why
[00:07:42] <chromas> could've tried pressing it again, or not pressing it the first time
[00:08:07] <Bytram> maybe they should have de-pressed it?
[00:08:20] <Bytram> wrinkle it up, even!
[00:09:48] <chromas> The internet says there was a sequel ten years ago
[00:10:24] <Bytram> WOPR... with fries?
[00:10:25] <chromas> Time for a reboot with d-list comedians
[00:10:43] <chromas> They could even put it in the name. Wargames: Reboot
[00:10:58] <chromas> 'cause it's a computer ya know
[00:11:03] chromas is now known as Buzz
[00:11:08] <Buzz> oh whoops
[00:11:10] <Buzz> I meant
[00:11:12] <Buzz> /nick Buzz Killington
[00:11:16] Buzz is now known as chromas
[00:11:18] <Bytram> hmm, am getting a server error when trying to preview a story submission.
[00:11:43] <Bytram> hit back in my browser... did a ^A ^C on the story text, hit preview again
[00:11:49] <Bytram> got another internal server error
[00:11:51] <Bytram> :/
[00:11:54] <chromas> Working here so far
[00:12:25] <chromas> Did you put some emojis in the dept field or something?
[00:12:33] <Bytram> well, just tried a preview, again, and it finally worked. whew
[00:12:49] * Bytram clicks save
[00:12:52] <Bytram> success!
[00:13:13] <chromas> Tried it on the story you're working on; no error
[00:13:55] <Bytram> yeah, great idea... go poking at it while there's nobody here who could fix it?
[00:14:28] <Bytram> well, I *could* reboot the servers, I suppose
[00:14:42] <Bytram> but if that don't do it... we be in deep do do.
[00:14:46] <chromas> And switch 'em over to centos
