Nitrozac: that's the very famous picture guy
SNiP: I have been pondering this ever since I stopped panic'ing about my cofee mug being gone.
SNiP: oh
SNiP: I see.

SNiP: Heheh
tmr: hemos what do thouse people say/ask? =)
Nitrozac: Hemos, do they get squirted with a water gun?
SNiP: tmr : I would belive they just waddle around goin 'muuuh'
Otter: Here's a milestone in my life - today I modified an open source app to suit my needs. For the first time.
hemos: Well, usually they send attractive girls around handing out releases, and at some booths they get persecuted.
hemos: Nitrozac: Water. Clusters. Eck!
SNiP: Uh oh
Nitrozac: who gets persecuted the girls?
hemos: Yeah - I feel bad for them, because they're just doing a job, but the companies that do that are...pariah. But, they are still cute. *grin*
Nitrozac: do they get paid well?
hemos: Probably not.
tmr: hemos well tip them! =)
Nitrozac: doesn't Andover hire chicks to get guys to dance?

hemos: We've got User Friendly next door, and on the other side.
SNiP: Whoa.
Nitrozac: Is Mr Zenn around?
BeDope: tell garrett i say "hi" :)

BeDope: i believe that is classified information :)
tmr: yeah nitro whats the last name?

Nitrozac: it's one of those crazy European last names
Nitrozac: maybe

Nitrozac: Smith
CowboyNeal: supposedly Dutch, but it looks more Latin-y to me. =)
SNiP: Most things about europeans are crazy
BeDope: i thought "Nitrozac" was like "Sting" or "Madonna" - no last name needed
td0: my previous two last names always got butchered, but my current (and final) last name, 'Walker' never gets said wrong
hemos: I refuse to call him CowboyNeal. Pater. Just Pater.
CowboyNeal: hehe
Nitrozac: BeDope that's true!
CowboyNeal: and I call hemos "sweet cheeks"...

SNiP: Ok..
* SNiP breaks out the combat shotgun loaded with silver spikes..
tmr: snip thats wooden spikes...
Royster: Does anyone else think that Hemos looks like Garrison Keillor in the strip?
tmr: snip or a holy water squirt gun would do...
SNiP: tmr : Nono silver is fine too.
chromatic: Hemos is the love child of Garrison Keillor. Didn't you know?
Royster: I suspected as much.
BeDope: garrison keillor and who?
chromatic: Just Garrison Keillor.
tmr: asexual?
hemos: I'm Garrison Keillor.
chromatic: Yep.
BeDope: an amoeba-like reproduction?
Nitrozac: who's Garrison Keller
hemos: We split at age 25.
chromatic: He's a radio storyteller, NZ.
BeDope: host of "Prarie Home Companion" on NPR
BeDope: he also writes a writing/relationship/sex advice column on salon
chromatic: Obviously, Garrison got that part of his brain, right Hemos?
SNiP: Hehehehhehe
Royster: I can't imagine going to GK for sex advise. That's like going to Martha Stewart for computer advise.
Nitrozac: oooh, I'll have to check Mr Garrison
chromatic: Or for sex advice.
teleny: He did however, hang a whole PHC monologue on an inopportune erection.
Nitrozac: Martha Stewart is a computer genius
teleny: Todd Rundgren wrote an operating system, anything's possible.
chromatic: She singlehandedly invented the CD-ROM caddy doily...
BeDope: what is todd's os?
chromatic: And, thanks to her, I know that if you sprinkle a little bit of cloves in your rubbing alcohol, you can clean your keyboard AND give it a festive holiday smell all at the same time!
n|trox: haha, chromatic
teleny: Um, he's mostly a mac/amiga man, but sometime back in the 80's, he wrote some OS I can't remember the name of offhand.
tmr: Todd Rundgren
tmr: "A Wizard, A True Star." The
tmr: title of Todd Rundgren's 1973
tmr: solo album aptly sums up the
tmr: contributions of this
tmr: multi-faceted a
tmr: ech

chromatic: 56 bytes from hemos: ttl=6 weeks

chromatic: time: dont' ask
* td0 forgets that he no longer lives in Minnesota, so not everyone knows Garrison Keillor
chromatic: How about lutefisk?
* td0 gags
BeDope: td0: if you lived in Minnesota still we would all know who he is?
SNiP: What is a lutefisk ?
teleny: I'm a swede. Kottbullar for me.
chromatic: Fish Jell-O.
td0: BeD: not quite what I meant..:
teleny: cod in lye.
td0: :)
SNiP: Yuck
td0: raw
chromatic: It smells even worse than it sounds.
teleny: Pickled. Like sushi.
* td0 agrees, it smells
SNiP: Like sushi in winegum
teleny: Good desc.
Nitrozac: Are there any BeOS booths?
chromatic: Like a junior high school locker room.
teleny: hehehe!
SNiP: Heheh
td0: teleny: I'm a sede too, but we always called it lutefisk
SNiP: I'm off
chromatic: Bye, SNiP!
SNiP: Bye!
teleny: Ah. I was simply invoking iconic national food.
Royster: It's like haggis -- something to give the tourists while the naives snicker behind their hands.
SNiP has quit IRC (Connection reset by peer)
td0: hehe
teleny: Yeah, and reindeer and weird berries with lots of seeds.
* chromatic thought the tourists WERE the naives.
danchez has quit IRC (damn PHBs, have a meeting. later.)
td0: except that my grandfather, great-grandfather, great-grandmother, and uncle all eat lutefisk
chromatic: So, hemos, how about a game of Quake? I'm really bad, the lag probably won't hurt you much, heh heh.
teleny: Though I wouldn't turn down a "wolf paw" now and then.
hemos: Heh -I'd be slaughtered like the pig I am.
teleny: Oink. Double for me. Fragged in a second.
* chromatic makes a mental note -- don't piss off people who might recommend you.
chromatic: Hmm, look at all of those O'Reilly books...
* n|trox is roaming around the expo floor, hunting the TTB's .. again ...
td0: lunch time
td0: I don't think I'll be eating anything swedish though..:)
chromatic: I had a salad. Wheeeeee.
td0: although some leftsa would be good...
* Royster had a huge cup of cofee and a cigarette for lunch.
teleny: <grin>

Royster: But the filter is stuck between my teeth.
sprocket ( has joined the channel
chromatic: Good thing it wasn't the handle, Royster.
Nitrozac: chromatic from who?
chromatic: One of my users.
sprocket: Greetings...
chromatic: Her computer absolutely died a couple of weeks ago, and I got her a replacement. Sorta.
BeDope: he was the replacement ;)
Nitrozac: I think she likes you
* n|trox had two pork chops with chips
chromatic: Then I went up on the roof and drop-kicked her old computer all the way to the concrete factory across the street and down the hill.
hemos has quit IRC (lag
Royster: So, I really want to know why everyone isn't at work right now.
chromatic: hemos barely dodges chromatic's rocket
CowboyNeal: I am at work right now. =)
chromatic: Hi, sprocket!
BeDope: i'm working as i read
chromatic: CowboyNeal, wanna trade jobs?
chromatic: Or BeDope?
chromatic: or anyone?!?
CowboyNeal: never! ;)
chromatic: I'll give you a dollar...
n|trox: chromatic: wich job have u got?
n|trox: i have 3 to choose from
n|trox: so i can trade ;)
sprocket: Royster: I'm having lunch... kinda....
chromatic: I'm a Sit Around And Wait For Something To Break and then Reboot NT And Blame Microsoft guy.
chromatic: I like the Sit Around and Blame Microsoft parts...
sprocket: chromatic: Oooh. Do you work cheap? :)
chromatic: Nope. My Sitting Around fee is pretty high.
* Royster is flipping through Excel <gag> <spit> sheets with his left hand while typing on his Linux laptop with cell modem on the fight.
sprocket: Hehe.
sprocket: Oh well... no gov't contracts for you.
Royster: So, if I accidentally type in a number in the millions here, you'll know why.
n|trox: chromatic: i am currently doing something like that here .. but i do more things for a lower salary
n|trox: and in other job i do bussiness software
n|trox: and in the 3rd i do web design and programming
n|trox: :)
n|trox: choose one
chromatic: I'm supposed to do more things, but I fixed them all in a strange fit of efficiency a couple of weeks ago.
chromatic: I end up reloading Slashdot all day on my Linux box. That's why I thought about trading with CowboyNeal.
sprocket: Hmmm. I'm having a strange fit of "I need a vacation" - thus... having lunch at home. :P
tmr has changed the topic to "Hemos lag killed him! ALS pictures"
tmr has set the channel mode to "limit 78"
n|trox: i know .. sometimes it happens to me here too .. i must tame 3 Win 3.11 computers, two Win 95 (one with Win 3.11 too) and two Win 98 (one with Win NT 4.0 too) and also a Sun SparcStation
CowboyNeal: chromatic: heh. I end up reading it a lot too, but out of necessity, not want. :)
Arachnus ( has joined the channel
chromatic: Me too. It is necessary for me to stay awake!
sprocket: CowboyNeal: Yea, yea... sounds tough... :P
CowboyNeal: well, I actually code on the site, I don
CowboyNeal: don't just read it. =)
* chromatic is almost not worthy.
Presence: I did my job for the day: I wrote a 10-liner perl giz that parses incoming text into a csv. Weee! I'm ready to go home now.
chromatic: 10 lines? Bloatware!
Presence: I used comments. :^/
PING request from tmr:
chromatic: Did you use strict?
Presence: uhm.. no.. It always gives me messages when I do that. :)
chromatic: Bloatware!
sprocket: Now, now... he's just doing his part to increase "US Code Production"....
chromatic: We're on the verge of a punctuation shortage. Every line of Perl we can reduce will help.
Presence: hrm.. I'm looking at what I wrote.. I could shave off 3 lines if I tried.
sprocket: I blame it all on AOL. They're the ones hogging all the extra !'s and ?'s, etc, etc...
n|trox: i have coded a script in PHP3 recently .. it's on the web but its for spanish speaking ppl (a good level of spanish is required)
chromatic: That is why Nitrozac can't use euphemisms, you see? Not enough punctuation. It hit Canada hard earlier this year.
sprocket: Hmmm. Does bablefish count?
n|trox: it shows a dynamic questionnaire and uses cookies to keep track of how far are you unto it ... it does also a database update ...
Nitrozac: brb
BeDope: that's why i type all in lowercase - to counteract the capital letter shortage caused by aol
sprocket: Yea... but AOL tends to only use up R, U, M, and F....
chromatic: Don't forget a/s/l?
sprocket: (damn... babelfish doesn't translate AOL...)
Nitrozac: just getting a broom to clean up this booth a bit
sprocket: Save the pizza crumbs.
chromatic: Ahh, now we are sure that tmr is just paranoid! heh heh
Presence: man, I could really go for a pizza right now.
n|trox: btw, ppl ... what are you gonna dress next Halloween? (this is a quick poll) :)
chromatic: Hopefully a redhead.
Presence: just going in my ren-faire garb
sprocket: Displaying this year's RenFair garb.
teleny has left the channel
sprocket: Does an amazing job of keeping older kids from the little one's stash.
chromatic: Well, back to the office. Think of me, all of you who are allowed to sleep at work... *sigh* Maybe I'll do some Perl.
n|trox: bye chromatic! have a nice working day!
sprocket: Enjoy, chromatic...
chromatic: Bye!
chromatic has left the channel
sprocket: Hmm. I can see my office from my back window - should be there now.
sprocket: Maybe if I SSH in to my workstation, I'll feel better. :)

Royster: Real life drags me back.
Royster: See yuz guys.
Royster has quit IRC (xchat exiting..)
n|trox: well seems all ppl are leaving now ...
sprocket: Whelp... after some moral dilemma, I've decided to not simply ignore it with Quake. Instead... I'm going back to the office. (sigh).
n|trox: ... and so am i
sprocket: Hehe.
sprocket: 'Course... I'll be keeping the session open and picking it back up at the office. :)
n|trox: see u bedope, Inging, Nitrozac,tmr, Arachnus, Chilli, CowboyNeal, Grommit, HoopyCat, maswan, Otter, Presence, sprocket, td0, trick, whadafuk ... bye!!!!!!

Nitrozac: I thought it was real then it bugged poor RMS
