(7:43:53 PM) Battuta: I stole a large comfortable chair
(7:43:59 PM) Battuta: it is in my room now
(7:45:03 PM) The_E: You, sir, are teh evul
(7:45:22 PM) Battuta: and now I've stolen its matching footrest thing
(7:45:27 PM) Battuta: it fits nicely over my subwoofer
(7:45:32 PM) The_E: Diabolical!
(7:45:45 PM) Battuta: I've been having back problems
(7:45:48 PM) Battuta: ****ing human spine
(7:45:51 PM) Battuta: so poorly designed
(7:46:45 PM) The_E: File a bug report
(7:48:13 PM) Battuta: mantis'd
(7:48:40 PM) The_E: Too bad the upstream maintainer hasn't done any wok in _ages_
(7:48:46 PM) The_E: *work
(7:49:18 PM) The_E: Seriously, he just rolled out the Adam and Eve versions and declared them good, how irresponsible is that?
(7:50:38 PM) Fury`: o_o
(7:50:45 PM) Battuta: yeah
(7:51:39 PM) The_E: I mean, look at it today, we have billions of people making their own forks of the sourcecode, introducing all kinds of anomalies. Oh, and _of course_ there is no proper documentation, so we just have to kinda reverse-engineer everything
(7:51:47 PM) The_E: Intelligent Designer, my ass
(7:52:14 PM) Battuta: hahaha
(7:52:15 PM) Battuta: so true
(7:53:50 PM) The_E: Oh, and the market for customization parts? It's horrible! You can't get _any_ after-market upgrades, only replacements that may or may not work correctly.
(7:54:27 PM) The_E: Sure, there are some customization options, but those are all superficial only.
(7:54:51 PM) Battuta: frankly I think we should switch platforms
(7:54:53 PM) Battuta: go open-source
(7:55:58 PM) The_E: Yeah, but there's the problem: All this constant forking and with all those users out there who just go with what works, getting a good replacement effort going takes a ****load of resources
(7:57:09 PM) The_E: I mean, even with all the reverse-engineering we've done, we still haven't even cracked the surface of the CPU, not to mention the OS. It almost makes you cry.
(7:57:47 PM) Battuta: well, I bet someone else out there has managed it
(7:57:52 PM) Battuta: shame our connection speed sucks

Yeah, sometimes we're not even remotely sane.

10:27:38   Androgeos: Great. :)
10:27:45   Darius: the mod will still be here
10:27:49   Darius: as will we :P
10:29:25   Fury`: are you sure
10:29:36   Fury`: might be 3rd world war with nukes raining on us by then

A piece of discussion between me and karajorma, I thought I'd copy it here. Discussion is related to this topic:

08:22:21   Fury`: oh wait
08:22:34   Fury`: if I use objecttypes, it'll break FS2 campaign
08:24:16   Karajorma: You're still worried about breaking FS2? Why?
08:24:51   Fury`: this is a mod, not total conversion
08:25:00   Fury`: I avoid any changes that will break FS2 missions
08:25:38   Karajorma: In that case you're going to have to wait for the FRED override then
08:25:48   Fury`: sure, tweaks have been made to weapons and stuff but none of those changes should break missions
08:26:15   Fury`: yeah, and I guess it's unlikely it'll be in .12
08:26:22   Fury`: so we'll just remove the sexps
08:26:26   Karajorma: Pretty unlikely
08:26:31   Fury`: and use destroy-subsystem where needed
08:26:36   Karajorma: It's a fairly big change
08:27:48   Fury`: it's really a matter of principle in regards to not breaking FS2 campaign
08:28:22   Karajorma: I've never really understood why to be honest. It's a mod, it's kinda expected to break things
08:28:22   Fury`: I just want to show that it's possible to create an FS2 mod that is nearly a total conversion while still keeping original FS2 campaigjn fully playable
08:28:33   Karajorma: Ah
08:28:37   Karajorma: Fair enough
08:29:07   Fury`: it's more like making an example that something can be done with little effort
08:29:24   Fury`: as opposed to the flux of ****ty, buggy and broken stuff we've had in the past year or so
08:30:45   Fury`: that said, I do not guarantee mission balance is identical (it won't be), only that the missions themselves aren't broken and are playable
08:32:12   Fury`: "It's a mod, it's kinda expected to break things" <-- and that's exactly what I'm trying to prove wrong
08:32:30   Karajorma: I'm not saying you have to
08:32:39   Karajorma: Just that there's no reason not to
08:33:00   Karajorma: But if you have a point to prove, fair enough
08:34:13   Fury`: Yeah, the point is focus on proper modding practices and not to go where the fence is lowest.
08:34:35   Fury`: While this stuff I asked you for would've been neat, it's not requirement and we'll work around it using other sexps
08:35:06   Karajorma: Fair enough

   <Snail|BP>   ah
   <BlackMan|MW2>   Is he gonna be w/Rian/
   <BlackMan|MW2>   *?
   <Fury`>   yes
   <BlackMan|MW2>   He's got my respect for that long distance relationship thing he had going
   <Fury`>   expect little battutas in a few years
   <The_E>   That's the plan
   <BlackMan|MW2>   Fury`: We'll have BP5 out the door by 2015 :P
   <BlackMan|MW2>   Just delegate a BP to each Battuta
   <Fury`>   that's the plan
   <BlackMan|MW2>   If they're anything like mommy and daddy... ;)
   <Fury`>   they learn to fred before walk
   <BlackMan|MW2>   LOL
   <BlackMan|MW2>   You know what'd be hilarious? If Battuta's kids had no academic competence whatsoever
   <Fury`>   pfft
   <The_E>   http://xkcd.com/441/
   <Fury`>   they'd write bestsellers before learning to say mommy
   <The_E>   That's what's going to happen
   <BlackMan|MW2>   XD
   <BlackMan|MW2>   Hahaha!
   <BlackMan|MW2>   No, no
   <BlackMan|MW2>   Battuta's going to check if the event was true yet
   <BlackMan|MW2>   And then bugfix the mission file life.fs2 so that the baby event triggers later
   <Fury`>   no no
   <Fury`>   moving events in the tree will mess up triggers
   <BlackMan|MW2>   Oh true
   <Fury`>   like arrival cues
   <Fury`>   He's so screwed!
   <BlackMan|MW2>   :P

The word 'Yo' is only ever to be used as a singular greeting.
It is considered an insult to destroy a perfectly acceptable greeting by misuse. A 'Yo-Yo' is a toy spun from the index finger by small children and enthusiasts,
any such use as a greeting will result in prompt reprimand by any member of the 'African-American' or 'Sri-Lankans-who-think-they're-black' community
