Fri Aug  6
 * TheProf thinks about locking his desk drawer at work on his last
   day, taking the key home and leaving some fish in the
   drawer....That should make the office really nice and perfumey come
   the next monday when someone takes over my desk.
...
<TheProf> I can just see the desk becoming known as "The desk of death".
<TheProf> After a full weekend they will need to hire Red Adare to
	  open the drawer.
<Jondar> Prof: question is how would you smuggle the fish in? :)
<TheProf> Smuggling the fish would not be hard. The folks there are
	  use to me having smelly stuff in bag when I fix my own lunch.

*** Nathan_Roberts has joined #drwhochat
<TheProf> You want to grab this wav.
[TheProf SOUND] mime.wav
<Nathan_Roberts> I do?
<Nathan_Roberts> Is this uncompressed or am I gonna have to boot the Windows
		 box to play it?
<TheProf> Don't bother. It's 10 seconds of silence. I've been driving
	  people in the room nuts with it.
<TheProf> >:o)
<Nathan_Roberts> ROTFL
<TheProf> Meg played it three times before getting the joke.
<TheProf> She kept turning her speakers up.
<Nathan_Roberts> Damn.  Now I'll never know how long it would have taken me to
		 figure it out
<TheProf> LOL!
<Nathan_Roberts> Probably 5 seconds, knowing me.
<TheProf> I have got to try it on Jason when he comes in.
<Nathan_Roberts> Don't tell anyone.  I'm going to reuse it.
<Nathan_Roberts> I'm going to rename it linuxcrash.wav >:)
<TheProf> LOL!
<Nathan_Roberts> See if anyone figures it out
[Nathan_Roberts SOUND] linuxcrash.wav
[Crow grabs the sound]
[Meg grabs the sound]
[Alden grabs the sound]

[In the channel...]
<CrowTRobt> nate that wav doesn't play... linuxcrash.wav
<MegL> it's playing
<MegL> just no sound
<Alden> I think that's the joke...
<Alden> IE, Linux doesn't crash. ;-)
<Alden> Mind you, considering it's crashed on Nathan twice now...
<Nathan_Roberts> You guys should have known better than to even grab
		 that after mime.wav
<Thete> I did ^__^
<MegL> LOL Nathan
 * CrowTRobt beats head on wall

    Suckers had for tonight: 3
<CrowTRobt> **whamwhamhwham**
* Alden knew it was going to be silence though. ;-)
<Nathan_Roberts> So why'd you bother?
<Thete> "because it's there"
<CrowTRobt> probably to run the joke on someelse Nate
<Alden> It's easier to press F12 than opening the folder and making a
	copy of the wav, then renaming the copy...
<Nathan_Roberts> LOL
<Alden> Otherwise every time you use that joke, mIRC is going to
	complain at me. ;-)

Sat Aug  7
 * Thete presses F12
<CrowTRobt> what does f12 do for you?
 * Thete presses F12 lots of times
<Alden> F12 is wavgrab
<Thete> hmm.
<Thete> just as I thought.
<Thete> PUBLIC NOTICE: F12 still does smegall on my keyboard and all's well.
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Theta: It's something script-specific
<Thete> just wanted to be sure it wasn't boobytrapped :-)

   absolutely nothing to happen.

<Thete> The Blue Box Project: Two schoolteachers entered a junkyard in
	search of a spooky pupil. One year later, they turn up again
	and get married.
...
<Blor> The Blor witch project. A bunch of dorks enter the woods to
       wander aimlessly and moan about evil fish. Sure enough, they're
       eaten by a swarm of winged, cannibalistic pikes.
...
<Thete> The Beeble Brox Project: one rather attractive astrophysicist
	from Islington leaves a party with a guy who claims to be from
	a different planet. One year later, the planet Earth cannot be
	found.
...
<Shel> the nathan roberts project...  a man wanders into the world
       alone in search of the bill witch
...
<Whomiga> The #drwhochat project - an entire channel goes online and

Sun Aug  8
<CrowTRobt> like when I took pics with the stars at Visions I was happy then 
<TheProf> Yeah, but that was because you were about to grope the lady
	  you were having your picture with.
<Nathan_Roberts> Prof tells about his latest Lis fantasy
<CrowTRobt> I didn't grope Louise
<TheProf> That's because they made you wear handcuffs for the pic. :o)
<CrowTRobt> she was a very nice lady and I mearly leered at her

Sun Aug  8
<Alden> Whoa, Bill lost the beard of evil. ;-)
<CrowTRobt> Alden I lost it since I started back to school
<TheProf> Just the beard. Not the evil.

Sun Aug  8
<Shel> is theta still alive?
<Thete> no
<Nathan_Roberts> LOL. Good answer

Sun Aug  8
 * Alden asks again, anyone wanna test a dodgy software beta? ;-)
<TheProf> Let me know when it comes out at least on VHS.
 * Jondar fwaps TheProf with the Fwapper of Rassilon (TM)
<TheProf> Alright then DVD.
<Shel> prof, nah, dvd will be better
<Shel> beta supposedly is better than vhs, just poor marketing
<Shel> i wouldn't know, i've never compared the 2
 * TheProf reads postings about people complaining about the Five
   Doctors DVD on RADW. You just want to slap the shit out of some of
   them.
<TheProf> Beta was better but Sony was so wrapped up in filing
	  lawsuits against people that they were a year late in
	  releasing it and it was to late then. VHS had won.
<TheProf> Fox's problem right now is they have a finacial stake in
	  Digital VHS. They are convinced DVHS is going to win over
	  DVD. Lets see, how popular was SVHS? Remember digital audio
	  tapes that were suppose to be just as good as CDs and could
	  record?
 * MegL thinks DVD won't completely take off till you can record with
   it, but that time seems to be coming
<TheProf> Meg: People said the same thing about CDs. Digital tape was
	  suppose to be better because it could record. Sony once
	  again was the backer of that and lost bigtime.
<Alden> Grief, the discussions you can start just by asking if anyone
	wants to test some software. ;-)

[Peter is doing vanity searches...]
<Thete> search for my name in this page:
<Thete> http://www.afb.org/j_book199.html
<Thete> Peter Fagan
<Alden> Theta: Well....  the things you find out. :-)
<TheProf> Found it.
<TheProf> Peter Fagan's hasty departure from Helen's life suggests
	  that he had second thoughts about marrying a woman who would
	  be completely dependent on him.
<TheProf> You bastard!
<TheProf> Fearing for his own independence, he had no choice but to
	  leave her reaching for him, yearning in the familiar quiet
	  darkness.
*** Thete has changed the topic on channel #drwhochat to I'm sorry,
    Helen. Really, I am...
...
<Thete> oh great, here's another Peter Fagan..
<Thete> Peter Fagan, Ph.D., the director of the Johns Hopkins Sexual
	Behaviors Consultation Unit.

<Alden> Steve Jobs!
 * Alden ducks!

Mon Aug  9
<Nathan_Roberts> LOL... The slashdot icon for education-related stories is
		 a chalkboard.  With "2 + 2 = 5" written on it.
<Nathan_Roberts> There was this long thread about why it said 2 + 2 =
		 5, ranging from it being a sociopolitical statement,
		 to a statement on the lack of education of the
		 american people, to a reference to 1984 and
		 preceptions of reality...
<Jondar> heehee
<Nathan_Roberts> Then this one guy hits the nail on the head.  "Either
		 that, or they just thought it looked kinda funny"
<Jondar> ROTFL!
...
<Nathan_Roberts> I know the latter is the correct answer, because i did
		 something similar once
<Nathan_Roberts> There was some project we did in class once, which
		 involved making a scale-model of something.  (I ended up
		 making a scale model of one corner of the classroom)
<Nathan_Roberts> On the model, I wrote on the chalkboard, "2 + 2 = 5"
<Nathan_Roberts> Which I thought rather ironic, seeing as it was a math class.

Mon Aug  9
<Alden> Nate: I had an "I want Linux" moment before.  I installed a

<Nathan_Roberts> Remember the problems my college was having with their new
		 computer system?
<Nathan_Roberts> I got a letter yestarday apologising for the lack of a wait
		 list system.
<Nathan_Roberts> They said, "The wait list system has been removed."  I think
		 that translates into "We don't know how to make it work."

<Blor> Hey Nate
<Nathan_Roberts> You're not gonna like this... but I'm leaving the
		 house again today
<Blor> Nate: In the end , you're gonna melt or something.
<Blor> Or you will most likely slip on something and get killed in the fall.
<Blor> Or get a piece of a comet smack on your head.
<Blor> Or be attacked by a rabid kitten.
<Blor> If the last one happens, can you please film it? Or at least take
       pictures.
<Nathan_Roberts> ROTFLMAO
<Blor> You know what I would like to hear in a 'conversation' like this?
       Someone blurbing: "Hey, thats nothing to make jokes about!"
<Nathan_Roberts> Hey, that's nothing to make jokes about!
<Blor> *fwap*
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Also i'm going to go to the store shortly to get some
		 junk food
<Blor> Ok. There's still some Nate in you.
<Nathan_Roberts> You can take the Nate out of the junk food, but you
		 can't take the junk food out of the Nate...hmm, that
		 doesn't work as well as I had hoped
<Blor> Uhm... no. But I get your point.

 * Nathan_Roberts has written some reports of the times he's gotten out of
   the house at http://www.crl.com/~nathanr/trip.html
<Nathan_Roberts> Blor will like the fact that I titled Episode I "The
		 Nightmare Begins"
<Blor> A story of nature gone wrong?
<Nathan_Roberts> Hahahha
<Blor> "The nightmare begins" is a good title, but it really doesnt
       explain that this is truly one of the signs of the apocalypse
<Nathan_Roberts> Episode V is "EarthShock"...
<Brigadier> blor - i thought the first sign of the apocalypse was that
	    you werent evil
<Blor> Brig: Well, that would be kinda awkward. Who's gonna provide
       all the hellfire?
<Brigadier> the temp workers
<Blor> Those buggers?!?! HA! They cant tell sulphur from washingpowder!
...
<Nathan_Roberts> You know something, Blor...
<Nathan_Roberts> While I was out on Tuesday, there was an earthquake!
<Blor> Yeah, I told you things would happen!
<Blor> Btw, got any movies or pictures for me?
<Nathan_Roberts> Of the event?
<Blor> Nate: I was referring to the rabid kittens
<Nathan_Roberts> Ah.  I'm afraid I wasn't attacked by any
<Blor> Hmm.
<Blor> You should have been.
<Nathan_Roberts> Well I wasn't.
<Blor> I paid a .. I mean. Uhm.
<Blor> Nothing.
<Nathan_Roberts> You been robbed.
<Blor> Damn.
<Blor> Do you know how hard it is to get hold of rabid kittens?
<Nathan_Roberts> I'm sure you will go find and have a pleasant word
		 with the guy.
<Blor> Yes. 'Pleasant' is the key word.
<Nathan_Roberts> Naturally.
<Blor> I mean, I would never actually hurt anyone. Oh no.
<Blor> I could send him some pikes.

Thu Aug 19
<Blor> Nate: You tend to get lost sometimes, am I right?
<Nathan_Roberts> Blor: You're reading my trip reports, aren't you?
<Blor> Yep.
<Nathan_Roberts> Have you gotten to Episode V yet?
<Blor> Yep.
<Nathan_Roberts> Well, in answer to your question.... Yesyesyesyesyesyesy
<Blor> Not that I really needed an answer to that question...
<Blor> ;)
<Nathan_Roberts> Three times in one day... That's pathetic
<Nathan_Roberts> And that's after getting hopelessly lost once before
<Blor> Maybe its a sign that you should stay indoors?
<Nathan_Roberts> Probably
<Nathan_Roberts> Doesn't mean I'm going to listen to it >:)
...
<Nathan_Roberts> You'd think I'd learn to bring a map and plan ahead
		 or something
<Blor> Plan ahead?!
<Blor> HA!
<Blor> Thats for chickens!
<Nathan_Roberts> Well the thing is, I *DID* plan ahead.
<Nathan_Roberts> Fat lot of good it did me.
<Blor> LOL
<Nathan_Roberts> But if someone had just told me, "The Mariott is the
		 tallest building in San Francisco", I'd have been fine.
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Probably.
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Maybe.
...
<Nathan_Roberts> Possibly.
...
<Blor> 'Not bloody likely' are the words youre looking for, I think.
