(02:37:27) Adam B: Are you saying I wrote OS9?

(02:38:18) Оберон: Yes.

(02:38:20) Оберон: Tell him yes.

(02:42:51) Оберон: Sure.

(02:43:08) Оберон: Perhaps Adam's true calling is less in writing code and more in writing comedy.

(02:44:17) Adam B: It's cool

(02:44:19) Adam B: Maybe he's high

(02:45:32) Оберон: Wow

(02:45:36) Оберон: no wonder everyone was asking us for weed

(02:45:45) Оберон: Adam must be telling people I'm a druggy

(02:46:19) [me]: (this is in reference to the fact that about 3 people have asked me and oberon for weed in the last 2 saturdays)

(02:46:22) Adam B: So I just re-read it

(02:47:13) Adam B: And, well, my first guess still stands

(02:47:27) Adam B: So seriously, what are you talking about, if not OS9

(02:47:38) Adam B: When you weren't looking

(02:47:39) [me]: no, you see, this is what we're talking about

(02:48:24) Adam B: I don't want you to think that I'm a sexually overactive president, but please define your "this" from that sentence

(02:48:48) [me]: that you wrote OS 9

(02:48:53) [me]: we're acknowledging that

(02:48:51) Adam B: Cause there was definitely no "this" (err, "that") to be referred to

(02:48:59) Adam B: Well, except for that

(02:49:02) Adam B: The OS9 thing

(02:49:06) Adam B: Okay whatever, sure

(02:49:08) Adam B: I'm flattered

(02:49:09) Adam B: Really am

(02:49:13) Adam B: Maybe you are high too

(02:49:25) Adam B: Which would explain why they asked both of you for pot, not just him

(02:51:05) Adam B: Righty-o then

(02:51:14) Adam B: So now, how did I get involved in that conversation?

(02:51:20) Adam B: And why do you think I wrote OS9?

(02:51:27) Adam B: (i.e. how did you find out about that)

(02:52:16) Adam B: Or

(02:52:28) Adam B: More fun could be watching me just type to myself in this pretty IM window

(02:52:42) Adam B: That's cool too

(02:52:47) Adam B: It's like a monologue

(02:52:51) Adam B: With an audience of 1

(02:52:55) Adam B: Well probably 2

(02:53:08) Adam B: Because Oberon is apparently monitoring this somehow too

(02:53:30) Adam B: Maybe through the ssh over unencrypted wireless through vmware and X forwarding

(02:53:32) Adam B: Or whatever that was

(02:53:34) Adam B: But he's watching
