<Jondar> well, you just go to Gallifrey and study TT engineering
         at the Academy.......
 * AldenB thinks it would look better revolving, but that's just him.
<AldenB> Heheheheheh.
 * Jondar follows the trail of green goo to the cyro-chamber and
   sees "NathanR" written above it...
<Jondar> Alden: you were right, it is Nathan...
<Jondar> [cue spooky music :)]
<AldenB> Dun-dun-duuuuuuuun!
 * Jondar hands Alden a titanium hat :)
<AldenB> Actually,  I'm starting to think about getting a big lead safe
         to log in from. :-)
<Jondar> Muahahahaha!
<Jondar> actually, there's a nice Gallifreyan redecorator that has a nice
         line in lead-cog lined rooms :)
 * AldenB checks his Netscape history. Apart from my page, most frequently
   visited site is http://varos.simplenet.com/ Hmmm.....

Tue Oct 06
 * AldenB notices something...
<AldenB> FAT32 doesn't support compression...

<Jondar> when you've got a large enough Hard Drive to use FAT32, why

Tue Oct 06
<Jondar> Nate: you seen Blor lately?

         you're safe :)
 * Jondar looks at Alden
 * AldenB look innocent...
<Nathan_Roberts> ummmm
<Nathan_Roberts> fun?
<Jondar> Nate: just a bit of improv acting on my part, which grew slightly
         out of control... not helped by you autoquitting soon after Blor
         arrived :)
 * AldenB sees Jason now expecting him to remember something that happens
   in the late hours of last night....
 * AldenB 's brain finially comes up with the goods...
 * AldenB sees that someone has cleaned the table since then.
<Jondar> Alden: so you remember now :-)
<AldenB> Yup. ;-)
<Nathan_Roberts> I'll find out soon enough... when I go through the quotefile logs :)
<Nathan_Roberts> If I ever get that far :/
<Nathan_Roberts> If you people were sharp, you'd be yelling at me, "Oh
                 god, something really great happened last night after
                 you fell asleep that you JUST GOTTA SEE" to prod me
                 into getting on the ball on the quotefile
<AldenB> Heheheheh.
<Jondar> Muahahahaha!
<Jondar> Damn! and here I was trying the subtle method :)

Thu Oct 08
<TheProf> Hey wait a minute! Nobody move!
<TheProf> One of my Beanies is missing and he might be the one that
          has rabies!
 * Nathan_Roberts stands frozen in space
 * Jondar levitates 4 feet
<AldenB> Jason: Beanies can jump 5 feet, you know.
<TheProf> Yep 5 feet. Can clear Alden in one leap.
 * Jondar thinks that if I said "levitates 8 feet" you would've
   said "Beanies can jump 10 feet"
 * TheProf looks around and sees the Beanie attatched to Alden's butt.
 * AldenB hides his beanie net behind his back.
<TheProf> There he is.
<AldenB> Ow!!

   off his head, and then read his mind :)
 * Nathan_Roberts will now have to invent an anti-telekinesis device
<AldenB> Nathan: It's called a low ceiling.
 
Fri Oct 09
<NathanR> The good news is my ISP is upgrading all their modems to V.90,
          so I shouldn't have these connection problems

<Gypsy> and  he thought christopher columbus was english!
<AldenB> Kim: Why?  Who's the vice president?
<Gypsy> is this normal for a 10 year old?
<Jefferys> Al Gore's our present VP
<Gypsy> I mean,, I was a book worm at his age, so I'm not perhaps the
        best comparison,, but that doesnt sound normal..
<Gypsy> well especially since we bloody well live 30 minutes from
        St Augustine.. the oldest city in the US..
<Jefferys> Tell him that Christopher Columbus got tired of pizza so he
           went out for Spanish cuisine instead
 
Fri Oct 09
[Discussion about biblical events ensues]
<dse> you find the idea of an entire city with only 1 righteous man a

                 LIVE there... >:)

Fri Oct 09 <Nathan_Roberts>
You know something... I once got into this conversation with my mother,
and I ended up asking her, "Do you believe in God?"
And she says, "yes.. well, no... well, yes..."
And I said "You're agnostic then?"
<Nathan_Roberts> And she says, "Yes... well, no... Well, Yes.."
<Nathan_Roberts> And I ask er, "So you're agnostic about being agnostic?"
 
Fri Oct 09
[Mathematical discussion about division by zero ensues...]
<Shel> let's see, you have 1 pie, and you cut it into 5 pieces, each is a
       fifth, right?
<Shel> take that 1 pie, and divide it into zero pieces what would you have?
<Shel> no pie or 1 pie?
<Nathan_Roberts> Shel: Tilt.
<Shel> lol
<Nathan_Roberts> Shel: No, really, Tilt is the answer!
<Shel> a tilt pie?
<Nathan_Roberts> You wouldn't have 0, 1, or anything pie
<Shel> but if you wouldn't have anything pie, wouldn't that be no pie? ;)
<AldenB> Divide it into 0 pieces... and you'd have no pie.
<Nathan_Roberts> No, because you wouldn't have that either
<Nathan_Roberts> You can't devide something that already exists into nothing
<Shel> nathan, yes you can! you eat it!
 
Sat Oct 10
<TheProf> I didn't see Jason come in!
 * AldenB cleans Prof's glasses.
<TheProf> AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
<TheProf> This ugly hand came out of my computer with a handy wipe!
<AldenB> Sorry, I didn't know Nathan was going to clean them too. ;-)

<Jondar> Prof: Oh... I have ways of sneaking in... after all, I can
         read minds and levitate... why not teleportation as well? :)
 * AldenB emails a message to the Psi Corps to tell them about Jason. ;-)
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Jondar: Hell, you might even be able to project
                 into people's minds and make them think you're not
                 even here!
<Nathan_Roberts> Hey, where'd Jason go?
 
Sat Oct 10
 * AldenB feels himself once again being pulled towards the computer
   store to get Win98.

<TheProf> Boy! A dcc from Alden over 1,000 cps! Will wonders never stop?
 
Sat Oct 10
<Leeloo`> heh.. reminds me of the maxim:
<Leeloo`> Trekkers wonder what sex in zero_G would be like. Trekkies
          wonder what sex would be like. ;-)
<Nathan_Roberts> Hahaha
<Nathan_Roberts> You know, that's actually very true...
<Nathan_Roberts> The reason being, Hackers are the ones that typically
                 call themselves "trekkies"
<Nathan_Roberts> According to them, calling themselves "trekker" is
                 considered being anal/politically correct/whatever
<Nathan_Roberts> And Hackers are notorious for not having sex :)
 
Sat Oct 10
 * Shel fwaps herself silly for falling asleep 10 minutes before

[I'm talking about the time I was (falsely) accused of screwing up the
 computers at the middle school]
<Nathan_Roberts> and [the teacher] said, "I'm going to call such-and-such
                 other teacher that I (me) had worked with before... and
                 I'm going to call the high school..."
<Nathan_Roberts> "Oh, and I'm calling your dad."
<Nathan_Roberts> Funny.  My dad took my side the whole time.
<CrowTRobt> I would have said "you need his number?"
 
Sat Oct 10
 * Shel woke up this morning and checked the freezer and yep there really
   is a shoe in there...
<Nathan_Roberts> Whaaat?
 * Nathan_Roberts looks at Shel slightly ascance
<Nathan_Roberts> I've heard of getting cold feet, but that's just silly!
...
<Drake> if you're missing a shoe.........check Shel's freezer........
<Shel> drake, the reason it's there is, all my friends say, if you're
       missing *anything* check Shel's freezer... :)
 
Sat Oct 10
<CrowTRobt> I tink a drank a six pack while on IRC one night. evaryone
            watched me slowly get drunk
<CrowTRobt> my typing actually went from bad to worse to worst
<Nathan_Roberts> ... to beyond...
 
Sat Oct 10
<Nathan_Roberts> People who can't deal with reality turn to drugs.  People
                 who can't deal with drugs turn to reality.
<Shel> i think you're more the People who can't face drugs or reality turn
       to IRC.... :)

Sun Oct 11
<CrowTRobt> I got a question O' Nate Guru of DALnet
<Nathan_Roberts> hm?
<CrowTRobt> is trapdoor.ca.us.dal.net a legitiamte server
<Nathan_Roberts> I think it's an ircop-only server
<CrowTRobt> I thought so
<CrowTRobt> I typed /links and ther it is but I have never tyed to get onit
<Nathan_Roberts> I've seen Mittens on it, but I don't think regular
                 users can get on it
<Nathan_Roberts> It also doubles as a router I think
<CrowTRobt> I'm gonna try to get on it and see what happens
*** Signoff: CrowTRobt (Quit: Famous Last Words #33: I found the
    TRAAAAaaaaaaaapppp!)
<Shel> how ironic to have that last words to come up!
 
Sun Oct 11
[Shel is trying to install K9]
<Shel> okay, now what?
<Nathan_Roberts> Shel: In mIRC, type "/load -rs k9\k9a.mrc".  Don't type
                 the quotes, and make sure the -rs is lowercase!
 * Shel crosses her fingers...
<chrisk> /load -rs k9\k9a.mrc
 
Sun Oct 11
 * Jondar starts pondering if he should get the latest version of K9,
   tear it to bits and claim some source code idea was his and not Nathans :)
 
Sun Oct 11
[Shel is trying to figure out some stuff on K9]
<Shel> okay, what's this pop up stuff, with target, etc?
 * Shel is afraid of that nuke word in there...
<Nathan_Roberts> Shel: Boot is a kick/ban, Punt is a 3-second kick/ban,
                 Nuke is a kick/ban from all channels you're on
<Nathan_Roberts> Plus an ignore
<Nathan_Roberts> Nuke is for kicking someone so hard that they can't come
                 back and harass you :)
<Nathan_Roberts> Target targets someone, but doesn't kick until you hit F10
<Jondar> arcane jargon too... yep, he's a programmer alright :)
 
Sun Oct 11
 * Jondar is waiting for a server called mario.dal.net since we have
   sonic.dal.net now :)
 
Sun Oct 11
<ServerKiller> Damn it, that's the second time I've deleted the entire
               quotefile work in the process of trying to delete a single
               line
<ServerKiller> Fortunately I was able to just reload it
<Whomiga> Nate!?!
 * ServerKiller thinks he better back this up before he deletes it
   permenantly
<ServerKiller> Crap.  Now I accidentally rebooted the computer

<Jondar> so, we have to wait another 10 days for the quotefile?
<ServerKiller> Don't worry, I haven't actually lost any work

   about now...

<TheProf> What should I say?
<random_C> you're a buttmunch? *G*
<Nathan_Roberts> Prof: Clearly he knows... He said "pheenious" so it must

<Nathan_Roberts> Just put him on /ignore :)
<TheProf> <soulsaved2> twice....it was my old nick.....i was just seeing

<Nathan_Roberts> I think i"m going to set up my computer to play biggun.wav
                 in the morning at full volume.
<Nathan_Roberts> THAT'LL jolt me awake and scare the shit out of me, and
                 leave my heart racing..
<Nathan_Roberts> No going bcak to sleep after that...
<TheProf> Nathan: And your left arm tingling.
<Whomiga> Nate - I had a program on my Amiga that played various tones at
          max volume - drove my roommates absolutely batty (Had a strange
          Key-combo to turn it off - had to be fully awake to remember it)
 
Tue Oct 13
<Nathan_Roberts> I have an idea... instead of setting my radio to play the
                 beeper, I should set it to play the radio.  At full volume.
<Whomiga> Nate - Get a recording of a half a dozen computers falling on
          to the floor with monitors exploading and such - that should
          wake you up
 
Tue Oct 13
<TheProf> With me the best way to get me up would be the sound of
          a Ding Dong being unwrapped.
 * Nathan_Roberts gets Prof a WAV of Liz Sladen saying "Brian It's time
   to wake up!" to wake him up >:)
<TheProf> I'd hurt myself getting up so fast with that one.
<Shel> don't forget to say "and were going to the beach today, i got
       my bikini"
<Nathan_Roberts> Muahahaha!
<TheProf> LOL!
<Whomiga> How about a wave of "Hey, Brian quick. It's Lis in a Bikini!!"
 
Tue Oct 13
<TheProf> Theta I have dedicated my life to finding just one picture of
          Elisabeth Sladen in a bikini.
<TheProf> I will not rest until that happens.

   his deathbed
...
<Nathan_Roberts> What is your name?
<Nathan_Roberts> What is your quest?
<TheProf> Ten years I have been on this quest if not longer.

[Prof is talking about his Computer Science assignment]
<TheProf> I also had to find three websites. The first was ABCNews.com.
          The second was I needed to find out where the Sacramento Singles
          Club was having their October potluck.
<TheProf> The last web site was easy for someone who has had three cars
          in accidents in two year. I had to find the price for a 1991
          Toyota Camry in excellent condition. Easy as while I was car
          shopping I had the Kelly Blue Book site bookmarked.
<TheProf> Might as well given me cnn.com as what to find.
 
Wed Oct 14

   violence.
<Borusa> How about "Run for your lives - Nathan is back!" or "Oh God! - It's

<TheProf> Nathan I hate to say this but Linux sucks.
 * Nathan_`SwitchToLinux`_Roberts makes a cross symbol at Prof

<TheProf> What pictures are we talking about?
<AldenB> Prof: There's some pictures of Bonnie in the SFX article.
<AldenB> It's a list of the 50 worst moments in Science Fiction ever.
<AldenB> Bonnie is at Number 1.
<TheProf> Your kidding!
<AldenB> I'm not.
<TheProf> Bonnie was #1?
<AldenB> Yup.
<AldenB> They really don't like her.
<TheProf> They never saw...............well maybe................I'm
          in trouble aren't I?
 * TheProf runs for his life!
 * AldenB chases Prof with a meat hook.
<TheProf> Alden is planning a hit on a british SF magazine.
 * AldenB can't believe Bonnie is worse than Adric... or Wesley.
<TheProf> Wesley didn't even have good legs!
<AldenB> That's because he wasn't a real actor.  He was a stuffed chicken.
<TheProf> Now Adric was passable when he wore some fishnets and high heels
          but Wesley looks teribble in anything knee high or shorter.
<TheProf> I mean even Harry Sullivan looks good in the old simple little
          black dress but Wesley just looks cheap in that.
<Nathan_Roberts> I think Alden ran to the toilet to puke!
 * TheProf seems to have wandered into a very strange area here.
<AldenB> No, I have a bucket by my desk for just these sorts of emergencies.
<Nathan_Roberts> Can't think of why else he'd be this quiet...
<Nathan_Roberts> ah
 * TheProf . To boldly and tastlessly go where no conversation has
   gone before.
<Nathan_Roberts> Muahahahah
 * AldenB still can't work out why the writers of Star Trek decided
   Wesley deserved to be turned into a god.
<AldenB> And what's he the god of?  Weenies?
<TheProf> Now lets talk about The Brig. That side arm makes a very nice
          accessory for many nice outfits.
 * AldenB liked the black mini-skirt and army top, complete with beret. ;-)
<TheProf> Wesley should have been beamed abord with Adric for his final ride.
<TheProf> Nah Alden. To Monica. Looks trashy.
<Nathan_Roberts> Alden: He's the god of Geekvana.  Where all Adrics and
                 Wesleys go when they die

<Jondar> thanks goodness for touch typing - I've had to take my glasses
         off to repair them, a lens popped out :(
<AldenB> :-/
<Jondar> I've also discovered a use for my computer tech toolkit
<Nathan_Roberts> Repairing glasses? :)
<Jondar> Nate: yes :)
<Jondar> one of the screwdrivers is perfect for the screw holding the
         lens in :)
<AldenB> :-D
<Jondar> my last pair broke once, I fixed them by getting a thin piece
         of wire to hold the frame together :)
<Jondar> actually, I think it was a bent paperclip >:-)
<Nathan_Roberts> I've done just that lots of times with broken sunglasses
<Nathan_Roberts> Old standby trick
<Jondar> :)
<Nathan_Roberts> That, and scotch tape ;)
<Jondar> haven't needed sticky tape for glasses yet :)
 * Jondar looks at his monitor... it looks bigger without my glasses on :)
<Nathan_Roberts> Heh
 * AldenB takes off his glasses.
<AldenB> What monitor?
 
Sun Oct 18
<dse> I tell ya, there must be something in the water at church I
      attend: 3 couples there are expecting now
<dse> there's Anne and Tye, who play the music and are due in Feb
<dse> there's Pastor Martin and Karen, who were expecting when I first
      started attending back in 1995
<dse> and now there's Chip and Debbie, who teach Bible study and who
      just announced today they are expecting
 * Nathan_Roberts thinks the "something in the water" might be
   aphrodesiacs >:)
 
Sun Oct 18
<chrisk> Is your accent similar to Alden's? :)
<Jondar> Chris: no, it isn't
<Jondar> Australians and New Zealanders have very different accents
<AldenB> Yeah, Jason has an intelligent sounding voice.
<Jondar> Alden: thanks :)
 * Jondar doesn't know what to do with that summation though :)
<Shel> lol
<AldenB> Remember: Aussie accent: "Gudday mate, grab a Fosters from the
         fridge!" Kiwi accent: "Where's the sheep?"
 
Sun Oct 18
[Jondar has just been informed that you can use a headphone set as
 a microphone]
 * Jondar starts talking into his headphones just as his sister walks in...
<Shel> lol
<Nathan_Roberts> "Jason, what the hecka are you doing?!?"
 * Jondar watches his sister walk out probably thinking he's mad
<Jondar> Nate: something like that :)
<Nathan_Roberts> And she doesn't think so already? >:)
<AldenB> Jason: If that was me and my sister, it wouldn't change her
         opinion of me. :-)
<Jondar> Nate: yes, but I think I've confirmed it for her :)
 * Nathan_Roberts puts on tinfoil cap
<Jondar> OK, should I try the line in or the mic in first?
<Nathan_Roberts> Mic in I think
<Nathan_Roberts> Which DID you try?
<Jondar> Nate: no idea what I tried first... but it didn't work :P
<Jondar> good grief it actually works
 * Jondar sees his sister outside his window with a camera... Oh-oh
 * Jondar tries again... and notices a camera flash go off....
<Jondar> Oh-Oh....
<Shel> lol
<AldenB> That's just the computer's power supply shorting out. ;-)
<Jondar> Alden: no it isn't... it's Rebecka (my sister) with a camera...
<AldenB> Ah, taking pictures of her brother talking to his headphones.... :-)
<Jondar> Alden: yes
<AldenB> Are you going to put the pictures on the Internet? :-)
<Jondar> Alden: Hmmm....
<Jondar> I'll have to find the film first :)
<AldenB> Heheheh.
<AldenB> If you're lucky, she'll do like my brother...
<AldenB> After taking a photo of me, he promptly opened the back of the
         camera to look...
<Jondar> Alden: hahahaha!
* AldenB was happy, since he doesn't like being photographed. ;-)
<Whomiga> Wonder how much Rebecka will want for the film
<Jondar> Whomiga: that's what worries me.... :)
...
 * Jondar grabs the camera from his sister and discovers that she had the
   lens cap on while she took that picture
 
Sun Oct 18
 * Nathan_Roberts ponders where to store his CDs
<Whomiga> On top of the pile of computers?
 * AldenB keeps his in the microwave.
<Nathan_Roberts> I should hope you remember to take them out when you
                 use it... :/
<Nathan_Roberts> Who: That's what I was about to try actaully
<AldenB> Use it?
<AldenB> You can use it?
<AldenB> I thought it was for warping CDs.; -)
 * Nathan_Roberts sets them beside the mono monitor under the two
   PS/2's, not entirely satisfied...
...
 * Jondar bought one of those cheap CD rach things that collapses if you
   sneeze :)
...
<random_C> When I have this problem, I buy more furniture.
...
<Nathan_Roberts> I wish.... I don't even have floor space for it if I
                 could afford it
<random_C> screw it to the wall then
 * Nathan_Roberts looks at his wall
<CrowTRobt> uh oh...
<Jondar> Random: you've given him an idea... hide! :)
...
[I've just gotten the bright idea to move my whole setup around]
<Nathan_Roberts> Ok, if I suddenly disappear it means moving my computer
                 desk with it on wasn't such a good idea after all
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Halfway there...
<Nathan_Roberts> 3/4 there
<Nathan_Roberts> **ZOLT!!**
<AldenB> *** Nathan_Roberts has quit IRC (Disconnected by furniture)
...
<Nathan_Roberts> WHUMP
<Nathan_Roberts> Maneuver complete.
<Jondar> Nate: you make it sound like TNG Enterprise saucer
         separation/reconnection >:-)
...
 * Nathan_Roberts sneezes
<Jondar> there goes my CD rack
<Jondar> it just collapsed as Nate typed "/me sneezes"
<Whomiga> For real?
<Nathan_Roberts> LOL
<AldenB> That was some sneeze...
<Jondar> Rich: yes, for real
 * AldenB cowers as Nathan turns his way.
<Whomiga> Wow - Nate has the butterfly beat for cause and effect
<Nathan_Roberts> ROTFLMAO
<Jondar> I did say that the rack was cheap, and often collapses
         when I sneeze...
 * AldenB battens down the hatches.
<Nathan_Roberts> Yeah, but when someone sneezes over IRC?  That's
                 pretty flimsy
<Jondar> :)
<Whomiga> Nate sneezes in California - causes a CD Rack in Australia
          to collapse - wow
...
<Jondar> the CD rack can actually stay collapsed for all I care at
         the moment.
 * Jondar actually considered submitting it for a science fair, as proof
   that earthquakes are bad :)
...
 * Nathan_Roberts would try submitting it to a science fair as proof
   that sneezing is bad
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Ok, this is gonna need rethinking... The cable for the
                 mono doesn't reach
<Jondar> Nate: is the cable built into the monitor?
<Nathan_Roberts> Naturally
<Nathan_Roberts> I'm gonna need to get some extenders
 * Jondar nods
 * Nathan_Roberts has had to use his monitor extender here...
<Nathan_Roberts> Wait... Who said the Mnemotron has to be over there?
<Nathan_Roberts> >:)
<Jondar> Oh-oh, two ideas in one night... Nate's gone mad!
...
 * Jondar goes into the fallout shelter and raises the tachyon shield
 * AldenB calls the press.
 * Jondar tries his telepathy under the tachyon shield, discovers it doesn't
   work, and decides not to tell anyone...
 * Jondar looks around... Ooops :)
 * Nathan_Roberts puts on tachyonfoil cap
 * AldenB discovers the ultimate way to prevent telepathy and turns his
   brain off. No one notices.
<Whomiga> lol
<Nathan_Roberts> Your right, I didn't notice a difference!
<Jondar> LOL Alden
 * Jondar wonders if Alden is communicating with us using his heart
   beating Gallifreyan Morse... :)
<Whomiga> Not sure which would be harder - communictaing with the heart
          in Gallifreyan Morse - or getting the keyboard to understand it
*** Signoff: AldenB (Connection reset by peer)
<Jondar> Hmmm... seems that Alden switched his computer off when he
         switched his brain off :)
<Whomiga> He mistimed the Heart beat and told the computer switch off
          rather than saying hello
<Jondar> heehee
<Whomiga> Obviously, he's having trouble getting his Brain started to
          turn the computer back on
*** AldenB has joined channel #DrWhoChat
<AldenB> re all
<Whomiga> re AldenB
<Jondar> Ah, he got his brain rebooted :)
<AldenB> It seems my brain was supplying power for my internet connection.
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Oh good, everything is working to specification
<Whomiga> Specifications? - who's?
<Jondar> Nate: you actually have specifications? >:-)

<Shel> which brings up the point if you had the devil's phone number,
       would you call him? and what you say?
<Nathan_Roberts> Yes.  I would, and I'd say, "Stop putting out that
                 crappy excuse for an operating system!!!'

<TheProf> Newsflash: British Airlines aircraft makes an emergency landing
          in Halifax after fire in the cockpit.
<TheProf> Sound familiar as Hell?
<Nathan_Roberts> Yeah actually
<Jondar> Hmmm... maybe there's a Halifax triangle in the North Atlantic
         off the Nova Scotia coast?
<TheProf> Next plane I get on I am personally going to the cockpit and
          checking the insolation with a lighter.
...
 * TheProf suddenly sees himself in handcuffs being led away with his
   lighter in a nice plastic evidence bag.
...
<TheProf> I can always tell the judge I listen to Art Bell and plead
          insanity. The judge wouldn't believe me though because if it
          was true I would have tested the piolets to see if they were human.
 
Tue Oct 20
 * AldenB remembers the story about the US spending millions of dollars to
   develop a ball point pen to write in space. The Russians used a pencil.
 
Tue Oct 20
 * Nathan_Roberts wonders about erasable pens...
<Jondar> what's to wonder?
<Nathan_Roberts> Well... They don't work like normal pens
<Nathan_Roberts> As near as I can figure anyway
<Nathan_Roberts> The Erasermates anyway, never used any other kind
<Nathan_Roberts> You break one open... and there's no ink ini t!
<Nathan_Roberts> But if you puncture one, you hear the sound of escaping
                 compressed gas.  Then the pen stops working
<AldenB> Ooooooeeeeeeooooooo!
<AldenB> It's magic!
<TheProf> You sniff the gas and then you can die a stupid death.
<Jondar> :)
<AldenB> It might have halucinagenic properties...
 * TheProf looks at the other folks in the room. I may have sniffed some
   already.
 * TheProf looks at nathan. I know I did.
...
 * Nathan_Roberts looks back at Prof, focusing all 3 eyes on him
<TheProf> Nope. You have 5.
 * Nathan_Roberts looks in the mirror
<Nathan_Roberts> So I do.
<Nathan_Roberts> I never realized that
 * TheProf decides to test nathan for flammability as well.
*** TheProf is now known as FireChiefProf
 * AldenB tests Nathan for black hole resistance.
 * Nathan_Roberts instantly goes Poof and crumbles to the floor
<FireChiefProf> Faker. You are a black hole.
<FireChiefProf> Maybe that is what is wrong with Chezwho? He has
                a black hole in his head and it is so strong no
                intelligence can escape.
<Nathan_Roberts> Muahahahahahahahahhahaa!
<Jondar> Muahahaha!
<FireChiefProf> Just a theory. I would have to crack his head open to
                prove it..........can we invite him in?
 * FireChiefProf gets a wrench
<Jondar> "DWC astronomers today discovered a new black hole today, when
         it appeared in their channel and started to talk gibberish.
         Preliminary names of 'Chezwho' have been bandied about as the
         new name for this black hole.  The significance of this name is
         yet to be determined."
<Nathan_Roberts> Hahaha

   into the black hole within

	  booster rocket.

<Shel> well, sorry to say, but it's hard for me to play games on the pc...
       i'm always online when the computer is on... ;)
<Blor> hehe
<Shel> my son plays quake though...
<Blor> Good for him! :)
<Shel> most people think it's not an appropriate game for a 4 year old... :)
<Blor> That will teach him to shoot at everything that moves!
<Blor> and if it doesnt move, shoot it anyway. It might just open a secret
       passageway...
 
Fri Oct 30
<Blor> But we dont have halloween... I think it's something else...
 * Shel would love to see what the people who work with blor would do if he
   came in all dressed for halloween... :)
<Nathan_Roberts> Blor dressing up would be pretty easy... he just has to
		 cover his horns and tail and not bring his pitchfork to work
<Blor> "Hey jocke, where's the pitchfork?"
<Nathan_Roberts> "It's Haloween!  I'm dressed up as a human!"
