 * Nathan_Roberts did something neat with his shell account today
<TalusElf> took over the world?  no wait, that's *my* ambition
<Blor> Too late, Talus...
<TalusElf> it's never too late, Blor.
<Blor> Talus: It's mine already...
<TalusElf> Blor: that doesn't mean you can't be deposed.  the world's
           greatest conquerers couldn't build permanent empires.
<Blor> Talus: Remember, I'm Evil incarnate. This world belongs to me.
<Nathan_Roberts> Ego war!!
<Blor> I have always owned it. The puny little mortals who believed they
       were rulers were the greatest of fools.
<TalusElf> Blor: yes, but according to the Hindus this is a middling world
           where good and evil are essentially in balance.  If Evil rules
           for a time, then it must eventually step aside in favor of Good.
           I may not rule in this incarnation, but I'll get my turn
           eventually.  I can wait.
<Blor> I have always owned it.
 * TalusElf now needs to find himself a Pinky-like sidekick. "What we gonna
   do this reincarnation, Talus?" "The same thing we do every reincarnation
   Pinky, try to take over the world."
<Blor> I am Blor. Resistance is useless. Give me all your scifi related
       video material or you will perish.
 * TalusElf hands over his Trek crap and hides his Star Wars and DW.
<Blor> Ooooooo! That was evil!
<Blor> You want a job?
<TalusElf> no thanks, I'm your competition remember?
<TalusElf> tho actually I'm more of a Neutral type than a Good type when
           the day's really over
<Blor> No extra money on the side? No one will ever find out.
<Blor> Nathan will "Vanish".
<Blor> Mysteriously.
<Blor> Never to be seen again.
<Blor> In fact,
<Blor> It will appear as he had never existed.
<Nathan_Roberts> Until the Doctor Who episode, "The Mysterious Person"
<TalusElf> nah, I've got stuff to accomplish.  I'm due to buy Microsoft in
           another 20 years and move it off the Dark Path.
<Blor> Sorry. I own all the stock.
<TalusElf> Not according to these hackers you don't.  :-)
<Nathan_Roberts> ROTFLMAO!
<Blor> Hmmm...
*** TalusElf changes topic to 'Neutral versus Evil in the grudge match for
    rulership of the world.'
<Blor> Ok. So who's the good guy?
<TalusElf> hmm, I dunno anyone who's Good
<Nathan_Roberts> I am.
<Blor> Gimme a break! ;)
 * TalusElf thought Nate was an employee of Blor, Inc.
<Nathan_Roberts> It's only a front!!
<Blor> Yeah, right!
<TalusElf> ahh, spying on the enemy from within.  Luke Skywalker tried that.
           I don't think it worked too well.
<Nathan_Roberts> Yeah, but he won out in the end, didn't he?
<TalusElf> I don't remember.  I just seem to recall that the whole thing
           was eventually purged from SW canon.
<TalusElf> We interrupt this channel for a word from our sponsor.
[Various sound .WAVs]
<TalusElf> We now return you to your regularly scheduled chat program.
 * Nathan_Roberts considers kicking Talus for spam ;)
<Blor> There's no way in hell you could convince anyone of us that you're
       a good guy, Nate...
<Nathan_Roberts> Nope.
<Blor> Not after the Hindenburgh "incident"
<Nathan_Roberts> Hmm?
<Blor> and Hiroshima...
 * TalusElf thought Hiroshima was Nathan *Rogers*, not Roberts.
<Blor> Nope. That was Nate allright...
Sun Aug 02 [06:37]
*** Dewuy was kicked by Nathan_Roberts (Bad word detected)
<Nathan_Roberts> Knew he was going to be trouble.
 * Nathan_Roberts pats K9
<TalusElf> Yeah, I almost kicked after the little weirdo routine
<Blor> He started out somewhat normal... :)
<TalusElf> Blor: that was the tipoff right there.  No one in a DW channel
           is ever normal.
<Jefferys> Talus: The we should all be kicked :)
 * TalusElf kicks himself.
<TalusElf> ow, that hurt
*** TalusElf was kicked by Nathan_Roberts (Weirdo.)
Sun Aug 02 [15:28]
<Jefferys> is nickserv dead?
*** Quits: Jefferys (Killed (NickServ (Ghost command used by Wolsey)))
<Nathan_Roberts> No, but you are now!
[In comedy, timing is everything. - TheProf]
Sun Aug 02 [18:19]
 * Nathan_Roberts looks at his manuals printed in Flyspec 3
<Nathan_Roberts> I can condense a 25-page document down to 2 pages
<Nathan_Roberts> Of course, if you don't have really good eyes, you need
                 a magnifying glass to read it :)
<Nathan_Roberts> I can fit almost 12 pages onto a single page
<TalusDwarf> damn Nathan, what's youre eyesight, 20/-500?
Sun Aug 02 [18:38]
<Nathan_Roberts> This is interesting here...
<Nathan_Roberts> [18:37] <ServHelpBot> <Dakal> Just a note, MemoServ is
                 a truly unique DALnet creation.
<Nathan_Roberts> [18:37] <ServHelpBot> <Dakal> People try to duplicate
                 it, unsuccessfully.
<Nathan_Roberts> Memoserv can't be THAT hard to duplicate
 * TalusDwarf sees Nathan's eyes light up as he's presented with a Challenge.
Sun Aug 02 [18:51]
 * Nathan_Roberts finds that reading Flyspec 3 hurts his eyes!
<TalusDwarf> well, that's what you get for trying to read 1/2 point type.
Mon Aug 03 [05:49]
 * Alden does a /who on all the NZers online.
<Alden> Heh, I like this whois: for secret information om me type /who
*** Blor has quit IRC (Dead Socket)
*** Blor has joined #drwhochat
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o Blor
<Alden> ROTFL!
<Blor> Heh...
<Blor> dumb!
<Blor> dork!
<Alden> You just had to try that, didn't you. ;-)
<Blor> Yeah...
<Blor> I knew what was going to happen, had it in the back of my mind,
       but what the heck!
<Blor> Anything to amuse the crowd!
*** Blor was kicked by Blor (Blor)
[I'm starting to worry about MrB... first he changes his nick to a 4 letter
one, and now he starts kicking himself... He's turning into Grek!]
Mon Aug 03 [07:06]
<Nathan_Roberts> /who alone blows you off?
*** Quits: Nathan_Roberts (Dead socket)
*** Joins: Nathan_Roberts
<Nathan_Roberts> I'll take that as a yes.
Mon Aug 03 [07:06]
 * Nathan_Roberts reads Alden's submission and wonders if Blor is
   really Grek in disguise...
<Blor> Nate: Are you insulting me?!?! ;)
 * Nathan_Roberts brings out the evidence.
<Nathan_Roberts> [21:50] <Blor> Anything to amuse the crowd!
<Nathan_Roberts> [21:50] *** Blor was kicked by Blor (Blor)
<Blor> Nathan: Notice the capital B in Blor...
<Blor> AND The capital A in anything.
<Blor> Nathan: Grek would never use a capital A...

   working was because he didn't have it running
<Bob01> thats a good reason:)
<TalusElf> ahh, Nate, I'd wondered where my absent-mindedness went.  You
           appear to have it.  May I have it back please?
Mon Aug 03 [09:28]

Mon Aug 03 [14:12]
<ElflikeTalus> hmm, my SimCity is broke, crime-ridden, and no one wants
               to live in my slums.  What did I do wrong?  :-)
<Nathan_Roberts> Talus, if we had the answer to that, the world would be
                 such a better place :)
<ElflikeTalus> hehe Nathan, that's very true.  Maybe I could get good at
               this and start my world conquering by getting elected mayor
 * ElflikeTalus sees his entire mayorial campaign being based on the slogan
   "He's really good at Sim City."

The Monarcs won big tonight and our point guard threw her game shoes to
the croud. Un fortunately My head was in the way of the second one and I
had my back turned. She apologiesed all over the place.
Now had I been single it would have been a perfect time to ask her out.

This by the way is our third auto accident in two years. None were our
fault although we can't get anyone to get in a car with us anymore. Even
the hitchhikers hide their signs pretend to not see us when we drive by.
I offered my brother a ride today and he told me he needed the exercise
so he was going to walk. He said "Don't worry, it's only 10 miles."

<TheProf> Jason by chance did you do anything to the read me file for
          the Mars theme?
<Jondar> Prof: just edited the directions slightly, you keep on getting
         the file and theme folder thing confused :)
 * TheProf notes a rather bad spelling error in the Mars read me file.
<Jondar> there is?
<AldenB> Prof: Ah, you wrote that part? :-)
 * TheProf notes a rather bad spelling error HE didn't make.
 * AldenB hears the Hallelujah chorus.
<TheProf> The word originally is spelled origiginally.
<TheProf> Not that anyone actually reads the read me file. :o)
<TheProf> I never do. To much like instructions.
 * Nathan_Roberts will add a function to all his subsequent programs, and
   includes in the readme file, "Do it this way or else your hard drive
   will be erased."
<Jondar> Prof: you must have. I didn't touch that part of the readme file
 * AldenB hears the Hallelujah chorus crash and burn.
<TheProf> Jason I plan to blame you for this one. About time someone else
          gets the blame.
<Jondar> Prof: hahaha! but don't blame someone who is innocent though. It
         might get ugly :)
<Jondar> Hmmm... if I'd kept the orginial zip file I'd have been able to
         do check the readme file there. But I didn't keep the original
 * AldenB has the original file.....
 * AldenB grins evilly....
<Jondar> Alden: OK - send it to me then. :)

 * TheProf was grasping at a thin ribbon of hope and he knew it.
 * AldenB puts the scissers away.
 * Jondar wonders if he should be really evil and keep the spelling error
   in the distribution file readme
<Nathan_Roberts> Better yet... Change it so it says "Origiginally written
                 by Brian Morris" >:)
<Jondar> "Changes in this release (version 1.01) Changed the ReadMe file
         because Brian made a spelling mistake in the previous version"

<Jondar> Guess what? That's my friend, ringing me up with (yet another)
         Win98 problem :)
<trinalin> Jason - what did I say :)

<AldenB> Maybe he likes going to zoos and watching animals have sex.
 * TheProf lets Alden hold onto his innocence.
 * AldenB thinks he should probably just get out more. :-)
<TheProf> Or less!
<TheProf> I mean I really don't care if folks go to a sex room really. I
          mean sex is great and that is all fine but some/lots of these
          rooms are really sick.
