*** Pete_Wisdom is now known as Dr_Laura_Schlessinger
<Theta-G> jeff, you didn't tell us she was over at yer house
<Dr_Laura_Schlessinger> Yeah!
<Dr_Laura_Schlessinger> She says hi
<DoctorWho> Tell her we all hate her.
<Dr_Laura_Schlessinger> She says that won't stop her from doing her show
<DoctorWho> Somehow I didn't think it would
<Theta-G> give her some hohos and ask really nicely
<Dr_Laura_Schlessinger> She doesn't like hohos
*** Dr_Laura_Schlessinger is now known as Pete_Wisdom
<Theta-G> give her some jaffa cakes and ask really nicely
<Pete_Wisdom> Okay, I'll try....
<Pete_Wisdom> Okay, I gave her some Jaffa cakes and she says that she
	      might consider going from a Monday through Friday show
	      during the day time to three days of the week post
<Theta-G> haHa! she cannot resist the smashing orangey bits
<Pete_Wisdom> Actually, I Mickey Finned the cakes....she's quite a
	      different person when tipsy
<Theta-G> bwa
<Pete_Wisdom> She's also had about 3 glasses of Brandy
<Alden> Jeff: are you going to take comprimising pictures of her in
	bed with a woman?
<DoctorWho> BWAHAHAHA!
<Pete_Wisdom> A woman?  Hrmmm...where can I get a prostitute at this
	      time of night?
<Alden> 1800 HOOKER?
<Alden> 1800 BOINK?
<DoctorWho> 1800 WE-SUCK? >:)
<Mossy> LOL
<Alden> LOL!
<Mossy> I like the BOINK one
<Theta-G> omg

 * Pete_Wisdom strangles Thet and wonders what he looks like deep indigo
<Alden> don't tell me:
<Theta-G> Alden your phone numbers asctually work
<MegL> leave it to peter to try them out!
<Alden> Thete: are they connected? ;)
<Alden> who'd you get? ;)
<Alden> (he's not answering cause they turned up already)
<DoctorWho> Thete: That's not possible.  A phone number requires 7
	    digits, plus the prefix
<Theta-G> I added an "s"
<Alden> ah. :)
<Theta-G> well the one i tried had a recording, and i didn't have to
	  get past the utterance of "Hi" before hanging up. That was
	  quite a "Hi"
<DoctorWho> You do realize that they have your number now.
<Theta-G> fuck
<Alden> Well, that's what people usually ring for, yes...
<Theta-G> time to get DSL
<Theta-G> actually nate i have blocking. i have to bare my number with
	  a key code just to call some people
<DoctorWho> 800 numbers override caller-ID blocking
<Theta-G> fuck
<Alden> Now Thete is going to be hassled night and day by hookers
	ringing wanting to have sex with him.  Poor guy
<Theta-G> yep, DSL with a NEW NUMBER would be a good idea right about now ;-)

Thu Oct  5 [01:27]
<Theta-G> The AT&T van outside said 'cable' 'internet' and
	  'telephone.' I'm wondering when they'll stop handing out
	  numbers and just give out IPs
<Alden> Thete: what happens when we run out of IPs? :)
<Theta-G> then they start giving computers phone numbers ;-)

Wed Oct  6

<SailorGallifrey> I hear Bill Gates put a satanic message on a CD once.

Fri Oct 13 [09:20]
<NathanR> Did I mention I was sufficiently anal to add ID3 tags to

<talus> i always thought hershey chocolate would be populary with the
	guys.  it's so feminine it takes two female pronouns to
	describe it.

Sat Oct 21 [16:44]
 * talus sighs. if i was to boycott every stupid company that has
   defiles rock and roll by using a rock song in their adverts i'd
   wind up naked in the woods somewhere with just me and the trees.

Sat Oct 21 [21:46]
 * Theta-G is in perlgatory
<Theta-G> not quite hell
<Theta-G> but not perladise
<Theta-G> for a while, i kept inventing things and shunting
	  them nicely into the organized overall function structure,
	  but the last few features ware hacky and now i have to
	  re-file them where they belong in the code structure
<Theta-G> without exploding everything
<Theta-G> *headache*
<Theta-G> brb in a bout a year while i get it all up into my head long
	  enough to put it all back down where it belongs

Mon Oct 23 [22:37]

   dates is if those release dates aren't going to be met.

[Talking about naming our computers]
<Alden> Nate: Name them after the Spice girls. ;)
<DoctorWho> You just want me to do that because then I'll have to
	    computers named Mel
<talus> lol
<Alden> Nate: If you have three computers, there's three of them not
	called Mel, you know. ;)
<TheProf> I named my computer $$@#$ $@#$# **&)$#@ because that's how I
	  refer to it most often
<DoctorWho> Prof has an idea... I could name them "Son", "Of", and "A"
<TheProf> LOL
<Alden> Nate: what happens when you get a fourth...?
<DoctorWho> Bitch.
<talus> and a fifth?
<DoctorWho> By then I'll have gone and renamed them all again

	   parallel port.  "Wow," says I, "where did you get that?" He
	   goes "Electronics Boutique" in some town in california.  I
	   told him "Here's what you need to do.  You take it back to
	   them, and you demand your money back, and you make them
	   give it to you, because they ripped you off big time"
<Starfury> it was actually an internal CD RW. 
<talus> ugh!
<talus> hooked up through one of those "hard drive conversion" kits?
<Starfury> yeah, something like that
<talus> well el-bo has a liberal return policy.  i'm sure he got his
	money back.
<talus> geez.  why don't people realise that there's a reason some
	technology is really common, and the rest is on closeout?
<talus> people who are not nathan-like in their computer abilities
	should not try to mcguyver their computers.
