 * TheProf would fight over Sarah Jane's token.
...
<Shel> what would the hotels and houses be?
<Nathan_Roberts> Well, planets, naturally!
<Shel> i think the penalty card for having them could be the mining planet
<Nathan_Roberts> Jail would be Shada
<TheProf> Nate: I prefer the Death Zone for jail.
<Shel> so hotels would be a galaxy?
<TheProf> The tokens could be cool. The Tardis, K-9, perhaps the Doctors.
 * Shel thinks maybe making aboard on her own someday when she has time,
   like the day my internet connection is gone... :)
...
<Shel> okay, what would the money be?
<Shel> gold?
<Shel> but then no cybermen could be figures
<Drake> Arrrgh goes the cyberman player

 * Nathan_Roberts comes back from playing with a balloon in a most
   destructive fashion
<Whomiga> Nate - sticking pins in it?
<Nathan_Roberts> No, this one didn't die so quickly
<Whomiga> It helps if you stick tape on it and then stick the pin through
	  it - kinda cool actually
<Nathan_Roberts> I took in in the bathroom, where we have a detachable
		 showerhead, took off the head, attached the balloon to
		 the hose, and started it up...
<Whomiga> Nate - IC
<Nathan_Roberts> It's supposed to inflate to 12" in diamater.  This one got
		  twice as big
<Whomiga> 2 feet!?!
<Whomiga> BOOM?!?
<Nathan_Roberts> Yes.  Boom.

		  industrial strength hallucinogenics...

<TheProf> Like you have a chance in Hell Nathan. I'm still waiting for my
	  first after 6 years of marrage.
<Nathan_Roberts> Didn't you say something about me and the sadwank
		 mailing list?
<TheProf> i was misquoted--the pf
<TheProf> No she wasn't!!!!
<Nathan_Roberts> Let me finish! :)
<Nathan_Roberts> Something like, "I can see Nathan and Bill being on it,
		 but Alden?"

<TheProf> nathan, you are absolutely right.  and i sincerely do owe an

       Shakespear?
<CrowTRobt> yes
<Blor> Well... I tried that once...
<CrowTRobt> ah
<Blor> Didnt work out as good as I wanted it to...

[Nathan uses K9's Pager feature]
<TheProf> That got my attention!
<TheProf> How do you page someone like that!
<Nathan_Roberts> Prof: If they're running K9, /ctcp nick page
<TheProf> I like that page thing. I was writing an e-mail and suddenly I
	  thought my computer was having a melt down. I worry about that
	  but otherwise having a nuclear powered computer works great.
<Nathan_Roberts> LOL
 * TheProf shovels more plutonium into his reactor.
<TheProf> It's easy to find the shovel now. That sucker glows like you would
	  not imagine.
 * Nathan_Roberts sees his computer running out of steam, and shovels some
   more coal into it
<TheProf> Go with nuclear power. Works great and you can just dump the waste
	  into any local river.
<Nathan_Roberts> And the computer doubles as a nite-lite too... Nice concept
<TheProf> Fishermen love it because they can then see the fish glowing under
	  the water and makes it easier to find them.
 
Thu Nov 19

<Alden> Nathan: He's saving for one.
<Jondar> Alden: is this the same brother that wrecks computers just by
	 looking at them? :)
<Alden> Jason: Yes. :-)
<Nathan_Roberts> The logic I take it is , get himself his own computer
		 to screw up? >:)
<Alden> Nathan: Uh huh. :-)
 * Jondar bets the poor, defenseless computer won't last 5 hours in it's
   original condition with your brother around :)
<Nathan_Roberts> He should get a Vic 20 or something...
<TheProf> Alden I recommned a computer for him. It's a brand called
	  Fisher Price.
<Nathan_Roberts> Muahahaha!
<Nathan_Roberts> Even better!
<Alden> No good, he can't install Quake II on a Fisher Price machine. ;-)
<Nathan_Roberts> He can't install it on a Pentium either apparently.
<Nathan_Roberts> Not without screwing it up beyond repair anyway :)
<Alden> LOL!
<TheProf> lol
 * Alden thinks the computers been working... oh, a good three weeks now. ;-)
<Jondar> Alden: Gee... a record! :)

	    population
<CrowTRobt> you look so geeky you repel the opposite sex

	  calculator and everyone shook their heads and he goes "This is
	  stupid. We all do in front of us on the computer.
<Nathan_Roberts> ROTFLMAO!!!
<TheProf> Not one person thought about that one!
<TheProf> We should have all lost 10 points including the teacher.

	  fries and then a diet coke.
<Nathan_Roberts> LOL!
<TheProf> Truth is i am the one who orders all that fattening junk food and
	  a diet coke.
<Nathan_Roberts> As if that pitiful amount of calories you save getting a diet
		 coke makes a difference compared to the meal itself...
<TheProf> True but you save where you can.
<TheProf> Have to keep my girlish figure......if you call Rosanne girlish.
 
Fri Nov 27

<Nathan_Roberts> yousiums?
<TheProf> Yeah You see thems.
<TheProf> Makes better sense than musium.

<dha_visions> Crow says that nathan's uncertainty of his status as a living
	      being stems from his belonging to blor...
<Nathan_Roberts> Actually my uncertainty of my status as a living being stems
		 from the fact that I'm half human.  On my mother's side.
		 My father was a web browser.
<Nathan_Roberts> This is well-established fact.  CTQF.
 * dha_visions and company lol

<TheProf> Having problems?
<Nathan_Roberts> No, just switching terminals
 * TheProf envisions Nates room as this massive yet tiny LAN.
<Nathan_Roberts> Not even a LAN
<Nathan_Roberts> Just a couple computers connected with a null-modem cable
<Nathan_Roberts> This one is just a text terminal to the linux box.  It's not
		 really networked.
<TheProf> Perhaps mess is more accurate?

<Arcalian> hey, im just wondering...
<Arcalian> have i ever said anything worthy of the quotefile?
<Nathan_Roberts> I'm not sure
 * Arcalian usually only says things worthy of getting fwapped
<Nathan_Roberts> If you have, it hasn't gotten in because you've never
		 given me consent to be quoted
 * Arcalian gives consent :)
<Nathan_Roberts> thanks :)
<Arcalian> if i ever *do* say anything worthy, that is
<Arcalian> which of course is your call
<Nathan_Roberts> I don't think you had anything this month
<Nathan_Roberts> I don't remember seeing anything from you in the
		 'rejects file'
 * Arcalian nods
 * Arcalian nods again
<Nathan_Roberts> I also tend not to put in quotes from people in the first
		 place if I don't know they're in the 'all-clear file'
<Arcalian> its a sad state of affairs when you cant even make the rejects file
<Arcalian> what file is that?
<Nathan_Roberts> (Somehow I manage to keep the whole thing in my head, and
		 can tell whether or not someone's in it without looking)
<Nathan_Roberts> The rejects file is where the processor program saves quotes
		 from people that aren't in the all-clear file
<Arcalian> nothing beats the good old electrochemical computer filing system :)
<Nathan_Roberts> And the all-clear file contains the names of people that
		 have given consent
<Nathan_Roberts> lol
 * Arcalian goes ahhhh i get it
<Nathan_Roberts> I wrote a processor program that reads the all-clear file,
		 then reads the quotefile, saves the accepted quotes in the
		 'edit file' and dumps the non-consenting quotes in the
		 reject file
 * Arcalian nods some more
<Arcalian> if i keep this up my head will fall off!
