Thu Jul 01
<Jondar> I figured that was pointless anyway
<AldenTaxShootMeNow> Like my pencil

Thu Jul 01
 * AldenTaxShootMeNow wonders if he should tick the "This return is for a
   deceased person" box
 * Nathan_Roberts shoots Alden.
<Nathan_Roberts> Go right ahead. >:)
<Alden> <tick>

Thu Jul 01
 * Jondar goes to sleep when he's tired, and wakes up usually when the phone
   rings :) 
<Nathan_Roberts> LOL
 * Alden goes to sleep at about midnight and wakes up about 3 hours after the
   alarm clock goes off.
<Alden> At which point I get some morning tea and carry on doing my work.
 * Nathan_Roberts goes to sleep when tired, and wakes up when his
   internal clock goes off. Which doesn't always coencide with having
   gotten enough sleep :/
<Alden> Nate: Have you had the battery checked on your internal clock?

Thu Jul 01
<MegL> I've got that picture of you sticking it out and it doesn't
       look short >:)
<Alden> Sheesh, there's a guy with a 6-inch tongue on TV.
 * MegL thinks we need to measure your tongue someday

Thu Jul 01
<Nathan_Roberts_Away> K9 and VarosScript may yet merge into one..... ;)
<Jondar> :)
 * TheProf sneaks in and steals the Varos script.....hmmmmm.....I like
   the plot but I think the hero being killed by a Kangaroo at the end
   is kind of a downer.
 * Jondar fwaps Prof
<TheProf> Ok. The kangaroo stays but the tap dancing nuns in that 6th
	  scene have got to go.
<Jondar> ROTFL!
<Jondar> Prof: what about that kinky sex with water toys in scene 21?
 * TheProf turns the paper upside right....Oh! This is a program
   script.....still upside it is not a bad musical thriller.

Thu Jul  1
 * Alden grumbles.
<Alden> Does anyone want a brother?
<Alden> I've had enough of mine.
<Nathan_Roberts> Alden: I'll take him (indicates the bottomles pit in his room)
<Jefferys> How old is Alden and what's age diff between him and his
	   other siblings?
<Alden> Jeff: I'm six and a half, and they are all seven years younger than me

Fri Jul 02
<The_Anti> Loincloth and a shiny dome, that's what Ghandi is...

Fri Jul 02
 * Alden puts Morgan up for auction on ebay.
<NemoDream> Morgan?
<Alden> My brother. ;-)
<MegL> LOL
<MegL> are you going to split the profits with Trevor? I mean he'll
       get a room of his own if you do this >:)

Fri Jul 02
[Trying out the ICQ random chat feature.]
<Alden> johnboy: "Looking to talk to anything female"
 * Alden goes and gets his cat.
<TheProf> game for a laugh,anything goes, virtually unshockable
 * Alden gets the jumper leads

Fri Jul 02
 * TheProf finished watching his Everest documentary.
<TheProf> I am reminded of about 20 years ago some French climbers decided
	  to show how advanced moutain climbing was buy taking a cow to the
	  top of the Matterhorn....the cow died on the way up.
<TheProf> Now here you are almost to the top of the mountain with a dead
	  cow....boy they sure must have felt like a bunch of asses.
 * TheProf has always wondered what they did with the cow......
<FolkBoy> More likely they had fresh prime rib.
<TheProf> I figure they should have taken the cow the rest of the way
	  and left him on the summet. Image the shock of any climbers
	  coming up from the other side when they reached the top.
<Nathan_Roberts_Away> LOL
<TheProf> Explain that to the folks at basecamp.

Fri Jul 02 
<TheProf> I remember the big thing about the hidden profecies in the
	  Bible. When the author was critisized by James Randi he said
	  "When Randy can find one assassination in Moby Dick I will
	  be convinced. Randi found 34 total in just 10 chapters in
	  Moby Dick. Never give James Randi a challenge like that.

Sat Jul 03
<TheProf> Hmmmm. I just clicked on a Geocities site and was informed I
	  now am the intelectual property of Yahoo.

Sat Jul 03
 * TheProf broke his mouse.
<Nathan_Roberts> Uh oh
<Jefferys> Poor mickey
<TheProf> I sort of smashed it.
<TheProf> I sort of took my fist and crushed it like an egg.

Sat Jul 03
 * TheProf thinks about swimming.
 * Nathan_Roberts doesn't think about swimming
<Nathan_Roberts> The sight of me in a swimsuit would give people seizures
<Alden> Eeep
<Alden> So swim naked
<Nathan_Roberts> I guess people dying from the shock /would/ solve the problem
 * TheProf passes out
<Nathan_Roberts> It looks like the mere /thought/ of me in a swimsuit
		 gives some people seizure
<TheProf> Actually the coast guard might get nate for polluting the oceon.
 * Nathan_Roberts beats Prof with a stick!
 * TheProf enjoys it.
 * Nathan_Roberts tells Prof to turn around and bend over
<Alden> Prof: Nate couldn't go swimming because his computer would get wet.
<TheProf> LOL
<TheProf> True. nate could never find a phone cord long enough so he
	  can use the computer while he swam.

Sat Jul 03
<Nathan_Roberts> You're only as old as you feel
<TheProf> And body....I feel old.
 * TheProf turns to dust.
 * Nathan_Roberts sweeps up Prof
 * Alden adds water. Instant Prof!

Sat Jul 03
 * Jondar bets Prof will hate the colors I've chosen
<TheProf> LOL

	  I answered 'That's Jon Pertwee".

 * Jondar remembers making hi bouncy balls in 10th grade science, in
   the last week before I graduated from that school.
<Jondar> we'd finished all the work we needed to do, so the teacher
	 just set up some cool experiments :)
<Jondar> made stink bombs that week as well... didn't make the
	 principal too happy :)
<Jondar> the principal was going to report the lessons to the science
	 co-ordinator, until he realised that the teacher teaching
	 lessons was the science co-ordinator :)

Mon Jul  5

       there are out there
<CrowTRobt> oh yeah

<CrowTRobt> Paul McGann doesn't have the monoply on them
<CrowTRobt> I think there are estrogen brigade web rings
<Nathan_Roberts> I drool.  Therfore I am

Wed Jul 07
<Nathan_Roberts> I admit part of my motivation for writing K9 was so I
		 could have my own "cool" script with my name stamped on it ;)
<CrowTRobt> I must admit that I wrote Crow Extentions so I could have
	    my own lame stuff in a script that I ripped off with my
	    name attached to it

<Nathan_Roberts> I vaguely recall reading about how Linus came to
		 choose a penguin as the Linux logo
<Nathan_Roberts> He was once attacked by one...
<Alden> LOL!
<Lyssie> heh
 * Alden misses the logic with that...
 * Nathan_Roberts too
<Alden> Does this mean a window once fell on Bill Gates?
<Lyssie> This would explain his lack of a brain, right?

<Alden> Good grief, Norman Lovett with a body.
<Nathan_Roberts_Away> lol
<MegL> ?
<Alden> He plays Holly's head on Read Dwarf. :-)

<MegL> Ah
<MegL> OK

   otherwise. ;-)

<Alden> He could be the ball. ;-)

Wed Jul 07

Thu Jul 08
<TheProf> They have this stupid commercial jason where these 4 guys
	  set out this obstical course of sofas and boxes and at the

<Blor> Nate: Of course. She's not around so I can get away with it.

Fri Jul  9
<Nathan_Roberts> Good god, since I woke up I've sucked down 3 cans of
		 Mountain Dew

<Nathan_Roberts> Nope.
<CrowTRobt> Uh
<CrowTRobt> you decided to take k9 out of alpha and beta and call it a

<Nathan_Roberts> LOL
<Bozzie> And I think, hmm, he must really not like MS products.. :-)
<Bob01> does anybody like MS products?:)

	 he stole it and lots of other stuff...)

Thu Jul 29
 * TheProf saw a whale blown up on tv tonight.
<Lyssie> ew
<TheProf> Not something you see every day.
<Nathan_Roberts> o...k...
<TheProf> This huge whale beached and died on the beach and this
	  engineer had a great idea. Blow it to bits and the seagulls
	  and scavengers will have a feast.
 * MegL thinks this was a bad idea
<MegL> engineers are not the best people to make these choices
<Alden> He was probably a software engineer too. ;-)
<TheProf> The big problem was how much TNT to use and they decided to
	  error on the side of to much.
<TheProf> They kept everyone back 1/4 of a mile for safety.
<MegL> oh god
<TheProf> The explosion was
<TheProf> They had video taken of it by spectators and a tv crew who
	  were watching. It looked cool uintil it started raining
	  pieces of whale on the spectators.
<MegL> Bahahahaahah
<MegL> serves them right
<TheProf> The reporter said he went from a light beige colored rain
	  coat to one that was pink.
 * Lyssie snickers
<Lyssie> what Meg said
<TheProf> One car was crushed by a 200 pound chunk of whale meat that
	  was blown 1,500 feet from the blast.
<TheProf> The tape was hysterical because people were cheering and
	  suddenly started running for their lives as chunks of whale
	  and this pink rain began to pelt them from the sky.
 * MegL wonders if these guys have been reading to much Douglas Adams
<Nathan_Roberts> >:)
<Lyssie> "I think I'll call this... grrrr...grrrr...ground! Ground!"
 * MegL can't help it and is laughing
<MegL> they really really deserverd this
<MegL> you just don't dynamite a whale
<MegL> engineers >;-)
 * NathanR points out that both he and Alden are engineeres...
<Alden> Nathan: And I wouldn't put either of us in charge of getting
	rid of a whale carcass. :-)
<Nathan_Roberts> Alden: Neither would I...
<Nathan_Roberts> Because I'm the sort of person that would have
		 suggested dynamiting it....
<MegL> LOL!!!!
<Alden> Nate: Me too.  The only difference would be where I would have
	suggested sticking the TNT. ;-)
 * TheProf just had a thought. I wonder how the guy whose car was
   destroyed explained it to his insurance company?
<TheProf> Is flying whale blubber covered on most policies?
<Alden> Prof: I'd put it down to "Act of glob"

Thu Jul 29
<random_c> Nate - so you're coming to Gally 2000 then? Shall we all?

<Nathan_Roberts> The idea of a con just doesn't appeal to me
<random_c> go on! Or I'll come and drag you persenally.
<random_c> aaaaw
<Alden> What can we entice Nate with?
<Nathan_Roberts> Computer equipment!!!
<Nathan_Roberts> The quickest way to a geek's heart is through his UART
