21:08:53 [me]: well, I thought "file has vanished" was an interesting way of informing me of it

21:09:09 [oberon]: Well, as far as rsync was concerned, that's what happened

21:09:20 [oberon]: one minute there's a file, the next minute there's not a file

21:09:43 [me]: yeah

21:09:49 [me]: I suppose that could be called vanishing

21:09:51 [oberon]: Would you prefer "file has committed glorious harikari, and will ride the divine wind to its 70 virgins"?

21:11:07 [me]: heh

21:11:08 [me]: yes

21:11:44 [oberon]: So go edit the rsync source =P

21:11:50 [oberon]: or even the binary

21:11:54 [oberon]: just ask grep...

21:12:21 [me]: nah

21:12:28 [me]: I already don't trust rsync

21:12:31 [oberon]: lol

21:12:32 [me]: not going to screw with its binary

21:17:27 [oberon]: Am I the only one who thinks that 70 number is kinda arbitrary?

21:17:33 [oberon]: I've always sorta wondered about that

21:17:43 [oberon]: I mean, it's not like they're all useful at once

21:18:07 [oberon]: The sort of thing you do with virgins is not something you can do with 70 without engineered infrastructure and supports

21:18:37 [oberon]: Is the next verse of the Qu'aran something about "and you will also receive a house so large, it requires 65 people to keep it clean?"

21:31:26 [oberon]: That's still counting on an awful lot of women to die virgins

21:31:34 [oberon]: And I don't think infant mortality counts here

21:34:05 [oberon]: Maybe 70 is just an average

21:34:09 [oberon]: and it's really determined by annual ratios

21:34:47 [oberon]: so, like, if you have a string of really unsexy years, 'cause the plague hits or the 70s happen or something, you get more virgins, so everyone gets 71.2 or something

21:35:47 [oberon]: So it's more like "I got 70 virgins*" and then in fine print: "*results not typical. Actual results may vary. Consult your doctor before..."

18:37:08 [oberon]: And no, I'm not using Perl 6

18:37:13 [oberon]: because it DOESN'T FUCKING EXIST

18:38:14 [me]: well, it was one possibility for why what you were doing wasn't working

18:38:24 [me]: that you got Perl 6 from future.sourceforge.net

18:38:35 [me]: and were using that as your primary perl interpreter for some reason

(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

(02:46:19) [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

(02:47:32) Adam B: Which I did write, by the way

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

(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

(01:05:09) Оберон: If the pagans are right and there's a god of language purity I'm so screwed.

(18:53:42) Оберон: finding and translating russian biographies is easy with my intelligent dictionary/encyclopedia combination

(18:53:56) [me]: oh?

(18:54:00) Оберон: Yeah

(18:54:44) Оберон: It even translates non word-for-word

(18:54:55) Оберон: so you don't get weird artifacts from literal translations

(18:55:03) [me]: is it called Anna?

(18:55:17) Оберон: ...maybe...

(18:55:36) Оберон: I just heard a bunch of bangs from my common room

(18:55:42) Оберон: followed by "Yarr" and "Die"

(02:53:13) оберон(l): I own most of your recent quotes page

(02:53:27) оберон(l): I'm like some weird expansionist empire

(02:53:50) оберон(l): with an army of contextlessness and a desire solely for territory

(02:53:54) оберон(l): or possibly not.

(02:53:58) оберон(l): not at all, really.

(02:54:05) оберон(l): But I like the phrase "army of contextlessness"

(02:48:11) [me]: the song "ty poterjal" is great. "ty poterjal moi ruki i guby. ty poterjal potomu chto ty glupy"

(02:48:31) оберон(l): you lost my arms and something

(02:48:37) оберон(l): you lost because you're dumb

(02:49:14) [me]: my hands and my lips

(02:49:21) оберон(l): ah

(02:49:32) оберон(l): yes, the two most important parts of a woman *snicker*

(02:49:36) [me]: rofl

(02:49:53) оберон(l): seriously; who comes up with that crap?

(02:50:25) оберон(l): "Oh, but should I live to see another sunrise, even as the sun does bow before your splendor, I would be no richer, for I have bathed in the light of your beauty"

(02:50:28) оберон(l): yadda yadda yadda

(02:50:31) оберон(l): it really does sound like that

(02:50:50) оберон(l): seriously, that's not love

(02:51:00) оберон(l): that's "someone put some bitter crap in my coffee and I think I have the flu"

(01:45:50) оберон: Women are like my broken window shade.

(01:45:58) оберон: You can pull as hard as you want, but it's not going to change anything

(01:46:08) оберон: and the only solution is to jam them between your bed and the wall with a heavy blanket

(01:46:26) оберон: see, I have the gift if stupalogy

(01:46:29) оберон: it's not quite stupid

(01:46:33) оберон: and it's not quite an analogy

(01:46:38) оберон: and people are just so shocked they smile and nod

(01:46:57) оберон: and don't think to question how it is, exactly, that women are like a piece of plastic rolled over a metal bar.

(01:47:16) оберон: if they did, though, I'd calmly explain that it has to do with the sprinsg.

(01:47:18) оберон: springs, even.

(01:47:55) оберон: Life is like a fire alarm: you wish it would just stay nice and quiet but it never does and you always end up all wet.

(01:48:23) оберон: Now in actuality, a fire alarm is a device which goes "BUZZ" and life is a bunch of organic compounds wiggling about. But people buy it anyway
