You can about garantee that if trinain  is talking about something
obscure, it has to do with some actor she has a crush on :)
Sun, Aug 02 [03:51] <TheProf>
I had public transportation from Hell today on the way to the races.
It was 100 degrees and sinse my wife was coming from work we decided it
would be best if I took the train instead of taking a second car over. I
missed the bus so I walked a mile to the train station. I'm then waiting
for my train and some wino comes up with a beer in hand and a sixpack in
a bag and asks me for money. Should have told him to sell one of his beers.
So I take the train to the station I was told to get off to take
my bus. I get off and am told I got off at the wrong station by a security
guard and have to get on the next train and go two more stations to catch
the bus. So I wait 15 minutes in the heat for the next train. I go to
the correct station and find my bus sand get on it. Where does it go?
It goes strait to the train station I was just at! I just missed the
earlier one. It was the bus pulling up as my train left!
So I am finally on the correct bus and this lady gets on and sits in front
of me and I think her last bath was November. I moved to the back of the
bus as did three other people around her. I think it was rather obvious as
as the bus is moving everyone next to her gets up and moves.
I was successful in not strangling the wife when she showed up and said
"Did you have a nice train ride?"
Next time I think I will take the other car.
I forgot to mention at the second train station I was at had this trailer
trash couple with two kids. The wife kept calling her two kids "Bitch" and
asshole". I mean these were slimey people.
I tell you. I am ready to get out of the gene pool right now.
Next time the wife suggests I meet her somewhere after work and take the
train I will have her take the csspool train and I'll take the
airconditioned car.
I now know why some folks become hermits.
It was an amazing cross section of the lower classes on that train trip.
I met Willy the Wino, Trash couple from Hell and the lady of 1,000 odors.
I wonder if I give them all a bus ticket to Montana and $5 if they will
leave my city?

predict problems)

 * Nathan_Roberts sends the animal control to Talus's door
 * TalusElf chases off the animal control with his globe.
<Nathan_Roberts> Globe?
<TalusElf> Nate: I've got this little globe that chases people around
           and kills them if they don't run away from it.  It's elfish
           technology.  Highly effective against Daleks, door-to-door
           salesmen, and Belgian troops.
<Nathan_Roberts> Hmmm... that pretty much covers anything...
<Nathan_Roberts> Cybermen?

 * Nathan_Roberts sends Darth Vader to Talus's door
<TalusElf> wow, a vistor from another time and another Galaxy!
<TalusElf> Hey Darth, how's your son?

 * Nathan_Roberts sends Prof to Talus's door >:)
 * TalusElf runs in terror and hides all sources of fire in the house.
 * CrowTRobt watches as Prof destroys Talus' computer wit one key punch
<TalusElf> not my computer!
<CrowTRobt> tsk tsk tsk

           my computer!
<TalusElf> oh wait, saying kill my family and kill my enemies is redundent.  :-)
<TalusElf> so it's UrkelProf?
 * TalusElf uses the globe on UrkelProf. He doesn't stand a chance.
 * TalusElf watches the globe chase down and heinously kill UrkelProf.
   who vainly tries to run high-stepping away.
 * Nathan_Roberts suddenly realizes that Talus's Globe must have the
   Essence of Prodigy in it...
<TalusElf> Nate: it's got a lot of stuff in it but no cologne/perfume :-)
 * TalusElf recalls and deactivates his globe and stows it away safely.
<Nathan_Roberts> I'm impressed.  It's even effective against Prof...
<TalusElf> no, only UrkelProf, I think the real Prof is at
           least partially immune
 * Nathan_Roberts stores Prof away for possible future use...
 * Nathan_Roberts sends Godzilla himself to Talus's door >:)

           Shaqulle O'Neil.

   is afraid if it doesn't work he might accidentally kill him.
<CrowTRobt> sorry
<CrowTRobt> my head hit the keyboard
<CrowTRobt> I

                      guaranteeing every Americal central air conditioning

<AldenB> Meg: He hits me with a piece of wood occasionally though.
<Brian_of_Morbius> it's because he is feeling the need for an alias, and

<CrowTRobt> Prof you can reguate how many it gives out
<TheProf> How?
<CrowTRobt> you have to take the globe off and set a switch inside the
<CrowTRobt> that is if it works like a regulat machine
<CrowTRobt> -t-r
<CrowTRobt> =r
<CrowTRobt> arrgh
<CrowTRobt> -t+r
 * CrowTRobt falls into a coma
<TheProf> What Crow doesn't realise is last night I snuck in and repainted
          some of his keyboard keys.

Or 1.30899 radians and falling
Thu Jul 16 [3:36]
 * Nathan_Roberts kicks the crap out of Windows
<TalusElf> Nathan: I assume you've tried from the Run box?
<Nathan_Roberts> Talus: Windows seems convinced that the keyboard driver
                 sepcified in SYSTEM.INI is incompatible with the current
                 version of Windows
<TalusElf> Nathan: oh, well, then it probably is.  Afterall, Windows is
           always right, isn't it?  I mean, it knew what it was talking
           about that time it told me to format C: on that CIA hard drive.
<AldenB> Nathan: How are you typing in mIRC? :-)
<Nathan_Roberts> Alden: Beats the hell out of me
<TalusElf> Nathan Roberts is running: Psi-DOS 6.8, 1998 Psi-Corp
<TalusElf> No Keyboard Required is their slogan, IIRC
Thu Jul 16
<Nathan_Roberts> I live under a rock, remembner?
<AldenB> Nathan: I _don't_ live under a rock.  Mine's a nice boulder with
         sliding doors and an open fireplace.
Thu Jul 16 [4:10]
<TheProf> Nathan looking over the quote file i have one question. How
          much do I have to pay you to get you to correct my spelling?
Thu Jul 16 [4:13]
<CrowTRobt> Prof just get on the email confirmation list and tell him
            to fix your spelling before he can post your quotes
<TheProf> Crow it would take Nathan days.
<TheProf> Weeks maybe.
<AldenB> Yeah, correcting every second word would be too time consuming.
 * TheProf slaps AldenB around a bit with a large Beanie Baby
<TalusElf> hmm, due to Prof's insistence on being spell-checked, the July
           QF will not be available until August 15th.  Of 1999.
Thu Jul 16 [4:47]
<TheProf> Nathan we have had 5 kick/bans in the room tonight. Someone
          must have left the gate open in #sickosandperverts.
 * MrBubonic looks at Prof
<MrBubonic> I closed it. Did you?
<TalusElf> Sorry, Prof, I meant to close that before I left earlier, but
           when the B5-bashing started I decided to leave in a hurry
           and forgot.
 * TheProf looks out the window and sees hordes of perverts running out the
   next room.
Thu Jul 16 [13:23]
<TheProf> Nathan I knew it!
<TheProf> Look at this.
<TheProf> God is * NickServ enforcement
<TheProf> God using [] DALnet services home base
<TheProf> God End of /WHOIS list.
<Nathan_Roberts> Prof: What did you do, put God on your notify list?
<TheProf> Yep. Always wanted to ask him a few questions.
<Nathan_Roberts> Even I didn't put God on my notify list
<Nathan_Roberts> Just the Devil.
<MrBubonic> Me?
<Nathan_Roberts> MrB: Well who else? :)
<TheProf> God is * The-Enforcer
<TheProf> God using [] DALnet's very
          own rent-a-cow serv
<TheProf> god End of /WHOIS list.
<TheProf> We need to switch to Hebron. The holy server.
 * MrBubonic isnt allowed on that server
<TheProf> Too evil?
<Nathan_Roberts> Prof: Is the Pope catholic?
 * MrBubonic is evil incarnate. Take a guess...
<TheProf> No Nathan. He's Polish. Everyone knows that. :o)
Fri Jul 17 [0:25]
<CrowTRobt> How can a starfighter have a gender?
 * CrowTRobt ponders...
<Starfury> I'm not REALLY a starfury... but I play one on TV.
<AldenB> I know someone who's played a guitar on TV.
Fri Jul 17 [2:08]
 * MegL can't sleep
 * TalusElf DCCs Meg a tape of the Krotons. That should help, unless you're
   like Nathan and have an imhuman tolerance to such things.
Fri Jul 17
<Nathan_Roberts> Somebody tell me again why I upgraded to Windows 95?
<CrowTRobt> Cuz I sent you a free copy? :)
<Nathan_Roberts> Ah yes, that's right...
 * Nathan_Roberts goes after Crow with a chainsaw!
<CrowTRobt> BTW if you ever really decide to abandon it please send
            it back :) don't destroy the CD
<Nathan_Roberts> Now that you mention that, I'm sorry I don't have
                 a shredder...
<CrowTRobt> you would shred the CD?
<Nathan_Roberts> No, not really
<CrowTRobt> tsk tsk tsk
<TalusElf> besides, a CD would destroy anything short of an industrial
           strength paper shredder. MS ain't worth it.
<Nathan_Roberts> Ah, microwave! :)
<TalusElf> plastic releases toxic fumes, so unless you're feeling suicidal....
<TalusElf> uhh, I should've mentioned in there somewhere that platic only
           does that when heated
<AldenB> Talus: Ah, good.  I almost threw my keyboard out of the
         window then.
 * AldenB sniffs a pen cautiously.
<TalusElf> it's safe Alden, unless you leave it in your car on a warm day....
Fri Jul 17 [3:32]
<TalusElf> I wonder which is worse, being a smart ass or being a dumb one?
<Nathan_Roberts> Better to be a doneky with an IQ of 138 than an donkey
                 with an IQ of 73
<AldenB> What about being cool-ass?
<TalusElf> lol
<TalusElf> I guess all three options beat being a jackass.
<Nathan_Roberts> jackass and jillass went up the hill........
<AldenB> Or there's bad-ass....
<TalusElf> nah, that takes more muscles and attitude than I'll ever have
<AldenB> Ditto.
<TalusElf> tho if I'm like my dad, I'll eventually turn into a tightass
<AldenB> Heh.
<TalusElf> hmm, I wonder if we've gotten all the carreer opportunities in
           the ass field now.
<AldenB> A smooth-ass?
<TalusElf> we didn't mention "nice ass" or "cute ass", but those aren't
           usually used the same way the others are.
<AldenB> Or there's sad-ass.
<TalusElf> I've not heard that one before, Alden.  I like it tho.
<TalusElf> or that one either
 * AldenB has heard sad-ass before.
<AldenB> Probably on South Park, actually.
<TalusElf> I've heard the phrase "get your sorry ass moving", but again
           that's not the same being called a smartass or whatever.
<Nathan_Roberts> Did we mention wise-ass?
<TalusElf> no, I think we missed that one
<TalusElf> ya know it just occurred to me that only we could have a five
           minute conversation about asses and it not involve
           anything erotic.
 * AldenB snickers.
<CrowTRobt> Sad assed isn't it
Fri Jul 17 [3:52]

 * TalusElf once used all of "I'm Only Sleeping" as his outgoing answering
   machine message. No one left any messages until I took it off.
<Nathan_Roberts_Away> ROTFL
<Nathan_Roberts_Away> Talus: Don't tell me that WASN'T the entire point
                      of the excersize ;)
<TalusElf> Nathan: no, actually it wasn't.  I wanted people to quit
           calling in the daytime when I was sleeping.  *That* didn't work.
<CrowTRobt> hahahaha
 * Nathan_Roberts_Away craughs
<CrowTRobt> combo of cry and laugh
<Nathan_Roberts_Away> Correct, Crow.  You're getting good ad decoding
                      my cryptic talk :)
Fri Jul 17 [4:26]
<Nathan_Roberts_Away> Well, that proves that Yahoo's banner ads are
                      synchronized into the search query.  I did a search
                      for laptop batteries and got a banner ad for exactly
<Alden> Hmmm...
 * Alden goes to Yahoo and does a search for Bonnie Langford.
 * Alden is disappointed not to get a banner advert for gorgeous redheads.

<MeltedProf> Natyhan I have noticed that the pervs only seem to come in
             here when you are around. What cologne are you using?
             Pervert #5?
<PervertExterminator> Essence of Condom
 * PervertExterminator takes the bottle and sprays it outside the door to
   attract the perverts
<TheProf> We could do a big invite in #sex and have fun watching them
          roll in and K-9 kicking them out.
<Jefferys> Nah, on second thought, Prof, let's not and say we did.
<TheProf> I can see now Nathan's computer smoking as K-9 goes into
          overdrive from the mass of perverts.
Sat Jul 18 [2:32]
 * Alden listens to a song via RA.
<Alden> Smeg that's crap...
<Alden> Sounds like they're playing it at the bottom of a swimming pool,
        in the next room, over an intercom with a handkercheif over
        the speaker.
 * Alden listens to Orinoco Flow. Poor Enya. Sounds like someone is
   trying to suffocate her with a cat.
 * TalusElf wonders how Alden found out about that particular fantasy
   of mine.

 * TheProf suddenly has this image of a New Zealand UN troops. Basicly a
   huge flock of sheep with UN blue helmets rushing across the battle field
   and being turned into mutten burgers.
 * TheProf sees the enemy going "My God! It's the kwiwis! Get the BBQs ready!"

<Whomiga> BTW - dha has been added to the database - he has the same
          birthday as SupremeDalek
<Nathan_Roberts> SupremeDhalek? (Note the extra letter)

 * Nathan_Roberts read an interesting tech support story today
<Nathan_Roberts> About someone that tried to network two computers together
                 over a barb wire fence..
 * Nathan_Roberts now wants to try to connect two computers together
   using tin cans and string.
<Nathan_Roberts> All I need is 4 cans, two strings, and two accoustic
 * Whomiga thinks it would be interesting to try using two lasers and
   photodiodes from across the room
<Nathan_Roberts> That idea is actually not entirely out in left field
<Nathan_Roberts> Fiberoptic cable works under a similar principle
<Whomiga> Nathan - I know
<Nathan_Roberts> But the tin can and string one is really out in
                 left field :)
<TalusElf> Nate: the tin can & string idea is so far out in left field that
           it's looped the world and is now out in right field

 * CrowTRobt adds "hey! stop pinging me to read my ping responses!" to
   his ping responses

<Jondar> Ben Aaronovitch's page reported a 500 server error, why am I
         not surprised at that?? :)
<Alden> What's 500?  Hard Drive Crash? ;)
Mon Jul 27
 * Nathan_Roberts just went to DALnet's web page and sees that they have a
   button to add the Java client to their desktop as an active desktop item...
 * TalusElf watches the idiot count on Dal.Net approach critical.
Mon Jul 27 [15:47]
<trinalin> Odd quotes from trinalin - that's par for the course
 * Nathan_Roberts wonders if we'll ever get even quotes from Trina...

<AldenB> Hmm... Buffy pron...
<AldenB> porn.
<AldenB> Gee, now Nathan's going to wonder what he's walked in on. :-)
 * Nathan_Roberts has learned to just stop worrying about you weird people :)

<Jondar> unedited, Trial is 5:49:21
<TalusElf> Jondar: I think it scares me that you know that
Tue Jul 28 [4:09]
 * Jondar is thinking of adding a basic cast list for each story to the
   database, but I'm not sure how long that would take me to do :)
<AldenB> Depends how many times people broke limbs while filming, I suppose.
 * Jondar thwacks AldenB with a Timelash video
Tue Jul 28 [4:43]
 * AldenB wonders what he should do now.
 * AldenB looks around in bemused puzzlement.
<Jondar> Alden: you could try to take over the world :)
<AldenB> JAson: Good idea!
 * AldenB thinks... how to do it...
<AldenB> I've got it!
<AldenB> Step one: Join the Spice Girls as the new fifth Spice Girl.
<AldenB> Step two: Implant subliminal messages in their songs.
<AldenB> Step three: Accept supreme rulership of the world!!!
<AldenB> There's only one problem; I have no singing or dancing talent.
<AldenB> Fortunately, I am joining the Spice Girls, so this doesn't matter
         too much.
Tue Jul 28 [5:25]
 * Jondar plays with one of those water timers he bought from a novelty
<Jondar> sore = store
<Jondar> though, novelty sore was a better way to describe the shop, a
         novelty eye-sore :)
Tue Jul 28 [10:46]
<random_C> There. that should do it.
<Nathan_Roberts> Don't say that!  Sylv did and you saw what happened to him ;)
*** Quits: random_C (Ping timeout)
Fri Jul 31 [3:45]
 * TalusElf wanders over to Amazon to see if they have this book on
   ancient civilizations my friend recommended, and hopes if they do that
   it's better than the Atlantis documentary that was on earlier.
<Nathan_Roberts> Which Atlantis documentary?  The Time Monster?

*** Joins: Blor
<Blor> What the heck happened?
<Blor> All of a sudden mirc died...
<Nathan_Roberts> Blor: How did it die?
<Nathan_Roberts> Did you get an illegal operation error and it crashed?
<Blor> It just said: Disconnected
<Nathan_Roberts> Odd
<Blor> But I had two mirc windows open, logged onto two different servers...
<Nathan_Roberts> Did both die?
<Blor> And all the people on the other server, our work server were
       disconnected as well it seems...
<Blor> Yep
<Nathan_Roberts> Sounds like your internet connection hiccupped
<Blor> Yeah, but I could still surf...
<Nathan_Roberts> I take it you're running mIRC through a SOCKS server?
<Blor> U mean "use socks firewall"? No.
<Nathan_Roberts> How are you connecting through the firewall then?
<Blor> Dont know really... :)
<Blor> Hey man, I only work here... :)
<Blor> You know, I work with Internet tech support... How the hell should I
       know stuff like... eeh... hmm...
<Nathan_Roberts> ROTFL
 * Blor whistles and looks at empty spaces
