00:00 - 13:0013:00 - 00:00

12:00 AM
Right, right.
I spent so much money ordering stuff on CampusFood...if only I weren't so lazy. shakes head
@RilgonArcsinh One thing about living out of hotels is that you grow very acquainted with the various Internet Food Delivery Services
(The other good ones are eat24hours, delivery.com and seamless)
Hmm, this reminds me actually, I haven't eaten dinner...
I haven't actually eaten today
and I didn't notice until you started talking about pizza
Yeah, I've eaten nothing today.
@pixel Pizza has never come up.
yes but, it's too late for me to order anything
somebody said dominos
12:01 AM
I'd order chinese from the good chinese place, but they only take cash. :(
My local Chinese place doesn't deliver. I consider this a crime.
ok well bored of ME3 again
I'm pretty sure my pre-launch escapades destroyed my love of mass effect
@TimStone Sounds like someone doesn't want your business.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Pizza is implied in anything you say.
@OrigamiRobot I agree with this statement
@OrigamiRobot It has been three days since he linked Pizza the Hutt, give him a break.
12:06 AM
@TimStone That's criminal.
But if I leave the house, I might as well go get KFC.
Right? Sometimes I do cave and go pick up something, though. I probably shouldn't have moved away from Philly, it severely limited my delivery options/quality.
@TimStone my only choice where I live is literally Dominos, or greasy random chips and something resembling a burger
or, travel for an hour to get KFC, then travel for an hour to get back
Yeah, I don't think I could ever convince myself to travel an hour for food unless I was going to an actual sit-down restaurant.
yeah I've never convinced myself to travel for an hour for food
I should note that the K in the KFC I refer to is not Kentucky.
12:18 AM
korean chicken mmmm
@RilgonArcsinh This.
(had it once in a little hole in the wall in Plano, shit was legit and spicy as fuck)
@RilgonArcsinh Yeah. Korean Fried Chicken is serious bizns.
Though I normally actually get the non-spicy soy garlic stuff.
@LessPop_MoreFizz today I've watched Kill Bill 1+2, Truman show and Dumb and Dumber, I liked the first three but thought Dumb and Dumber was... dumb
I also watched Die Hard 4, and laughed the whole way through but not for the right reasons
@pixel Yes. Yes it was.
@pixel That said, if you liked the Truman Show, I'd reccomend the Cable Guy. It's a bit of a polarizing movie, but it's carrey at his most unhinged and is pretty unique
12:24 AM
It's on my list
it's being slow though
erm, does the tag need to exist?
I mean the equivalent would be
@pixel No, no it's not.
@pixel exists because redstone circuitry in minecraft is it's own, highly intricate thing that has special expertise.
That said, the tag wiki is awful, IMO and somebody should make a good one for it.
I got bored of editing tag wikis
@fbueckert another legendary for me :p
12:36 AM
where did gnomeslice go btw?
@pixel Good Question.
missing for ten days
Q: How much XP does it take to get from level 60 to level 100 paragom?

JonnyBlizzard announced that there would be 100 additional "Paragon" levels after a player reached level 60. I'm not sure if they announced exactly how the increase in xp would work, but I was wondering if anyone new the total amount of xp needed to get from level 60 to level 100 paragon? A formula wo...

@LessPop_MoreFizz answer
Aug 18 at 3:17, by GnomeSlice
@OrigamiRob What does your rocket look like?
Out of context things worth starring go.
12:50 AM
30 minutes until Cable Guy
@spugsley I'm blaming you for most of my weekend having been devoted to Diablo, just so you know.
@TimStone I approve :p found anything decent?
Of course, because I kept pushing to get to Paragon level 8, I ended up finding these shiny pants
@TimStone oh my, those are lovely :P
My legendary axe was blah unfortunately :/
It was probably punishing you for being a higher level than me
12:53 AM
@pixel Ooh, The Cable Guy is on Netflix.
I've got a handful of crappy legendaries taking up room in my stash...not sure what to do with them.
@TimStone dismantle them for a chance at brimstone?
Yeah, I probably should. I actually have one brimstone, got it from salvaging a rare back in the day, heh.
You know if you look at this image
Does that look like Gordon Freeman to anybody else?
@pixel Yes.
12:55 AM
You are not the first to make this connection
I'm not a huge Half Life fan, the thought has been present for a while but the name wasn't
speaking of which isn't that on lastnight/tonight
Hmm, I wonder how much Sleeping Dogs and Diablo I can fit in before tomorrow and still get all of my work done..
12:58 AM
apparently the last one was available 6d 19h ago
I'm sure I can stay awake for 5 hours
@TimStone I'd say....3 more hours! Or 5!
Probably! Good thing I hate sleeping.
oh Continuum has a second season confirmed
@LessPop_MoreFizz wow I'm actually a full year behind the rest of the world on this one -.-
Tom Waits to be on the Simpsons. Yaaaaaaaaay.
Dat Voice.
I actually don't think I've ever seen a full episode of the simpsons
When American tv shows say X/Y(c) when quoting time
what timezones are they referring to?
like breaking bad is on at '10/9c'
1:10 AM
@pixel you should watch every episode of that instead of Friends.
Central time.
because being european and all, central time to me means CET
US time zones, from E to W is Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific.
does '10/9c' take into consideration daylight saving?
1:12 AM
But seriously the first ~10 years of the simpsons is probably the apex of tv comedy.
@pixel 10 is 10 is 10 for scheduling purposes.
I am more confused than when I was using last week's upload times to work this out
@LessPop_MoreFizz agreed
I haven't watched The Simpsons in years..
I've seen all Futurama stuff
thats made by the same people right?
yeah Matt Groening.
@jin it isn't as bad as some have made it out to be these days. It's just that when you start at such a height.
1:14 AM
twenty two seasons are you joking me?
I'm not even sure I have that much hard disk space left
@pixel some. But that mid 90's Simpsons writers room had some other legends. Conan obrien for one.
I've seen all Futurama episodes, multiple times. I wish I never saw the Jurassic Bark episode...
@pixel watch the first ten. It's been downhill since. :/
@LessPop_MoreFizz and Phil Hartman's voice acting...
@pixel 10 Eastern (UTC-4/5 depending on whether Daylight Saving Time is in effect), 10 Pacific (UTC-7/8 depending on DST), 9 Central (UTC-5/6 depending on DST). Mountain (UTC-6/7), Alaskan (UTC-8/9), and Hawai'i/Aleutian (UTC-9/10) are not subject to the 10/9c nomenclature
1:17 AM
now I'm even more confused
I'll stick with "it will be available in about five hours"
cable guy time
Dredd 3D? Really?
@pixel Product of advertising and culture. If it only meant 10pm Eastern, it'd mean the show would air at 7pm on the west coast. Since 8-11pm is prime time in the US, that'd be silly, so shows in the pacific time zone are delayed 3 hours to ensure they too fall into prime time. Since nobody cares about the internal parts of the US, nobody cares about making sure programming falls into primetime for them
i suddenly have a strong urge to play that game...
Also, only people on the east coast get to watch primetime addresses like the State of the Union and the State of the killing bin Laden. Stations don't even bother tape delaying those: they just air at 5pm in the afternoon
@spugsley Inferno Diablo for me. :P
2:08 AM
Q: What does "8/7c" stand for?

LazerI just saw an update on Facebook saying: Watch Russell present LIVE at the 42nd Annual NAACP Image Awards. Tonight at 8/7c on FOX. What does "8/7c" mean?

yes, I will sign up just so I can upvote
Q: How do i install the neo paramedic mod?

Alex MillarIve downloaded the files and placed them in the games directory. I have an ASI launcher and xliveless but now when i try to play gta iv it does not load past the social club sign in. Does anybody know what ive done wrong? Cheers in advance.

rofl at "are you taking the pot"
Star Command is tentatively dated middle of October.
@LessPop_MoreFizz uh excuse me we do have a unified time zone, not my fault no one uses it
2:23 AM
@pixel Cable Guy?
@pixel Medival Times scene is a classic.
talk about life wrecker
2:26 AM
I don't wanna hear excuses.
I have a bunch of old poison monk gear if anyone here's still playing d3 and is interested
@LessPop_MoreFizz Nice metaphor at the end
@pixel The trouble with real life is that there's no danger music.
"Somebody has to kill the babysitter" = take out TV
2:42 AM
I don't think there's a tag on our site that attracts more bad anonymous edits than .
2:54 AM
26% edit rejection rate what.
yeah I just 'not sure' anything minecraft/anonymous
how do you find your reject %?
You can see how many you've approved/rejected.
98/384, 26%
3:21 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz I could also do this, I suppose
I am so glad I no longer live in an apartment building
my solution to situations like that was extremely loud gabber
@RavenDreamer I'm in love.
that smiley face and the thumbs up...
@pixel I would cheer them on to the point of embarrassment.
@Mana See the starred list.
It happened this morning.
3:24 AM
@Fluttershy that could work too
@RavenDreamer I saw that
I thought at first, someone was just jumping on the bed.
And then... I heard the sound of a very happy woman, and I realized it was perhaps time to get up and move to another room.
@RavenDreamer haha, yeah, I got woke up by the same thing once in my dorm, at 2:30 in the morning. woman being extremely loud during the act next door.
good times.
you know, 9 times out of 10 if we're loud it's faked
3:27 AM
@pixel it sounded extremely fake.
@pixel "we" meaning women?
to the point of amusement.
@RavenDreamer yes
@Mana In a dorm, it probably was.
@RavenDreamer pixels, obviously.
3:27 AM
@OrigamiRobot this too
@pixel I see. I did not realize you were female. Apologies if I ever used male pronouns towards you.
@RavenDreamer It's the internet, I'm so used to it
I live by a simple principle.
Everyone is exactly like me until proven otherwise.
gender is irrelevant online anyway
You cannot star your own messages
3:29 AM
@JoethePerson :(
I apparently have 3 more hours to wait until the next episode of Breaking Bad
@pixel Gender is often irrelevant entirely!
I agree, well at least from my point of view
how is GW2 btw, is it worth getting?
or will it get boring after a few months
@RavenDreamer does not like @Mana getting stars
@OrigamiRobot you're wrong, actually. stares @Raven
3:32 AM
@pixel It's different. It kinda feels more like Kingdoms of Amalur than an actual MMO.
If you've played it.
Basically, you can go around, and wherever you go, there's a maximum level, so you don't miss out on content by being too high a level
and the rewards scale too, so you can literally go anywhere and play however you like, and still "progress" towards whatever.
Also, it is very beautiful.
It is 11:30 and I am starving. Suggestions are appreciated.
@pixel So, I can't really answer this, but I will tell you that I am enjoying it.
@OrigamiRobot Sleep.
@OrigamiRobot yogurts
@RavenDreamer Worst answer ever.
3:34 AM
@pixel Some folks from Arqade are on Crystal Desert, if you do pick it up.
mountains upon mountains of yogurt
@Mana I stand corrected.
yogurt rocks, yo.
I will keep it in mind for sure
@Mana I don't know why you're surprised. I've been doing this for months.
3:35 AM
Yogurt this the worst.
@RavenDreamer (to be honest I have too, I've just given up)
new Breaking Bad episode is out wheeeee
good night
Good night for me too. I'ma hit the sack.
nn @Mana
3:38 AM
...you know, that phrase makes no sense.
and nn @RavenDreamer
You too, Pixel!
@RavenDreamer Sure it does. " I am going to impact my bed."
does anybody have a recommendation for a decent mechanical keyboard with other features like volume controls or w/e?
preferably backlit
Damnit, so close to completing the low quality posts queue, but it's all LoL from here on in
3:48 AM
Needs delete votes. NC, not going to get saved, I ran out of delete votes, and the answer smells like spam (only contribution from an unregistered user)
PLUS IT'S THE LAST THING IN THE QUEUE AOHSLdkjhsajhdlkahdqhiduhwqjdas
deletes is how much rep?
10k on questions after 2 days, 20k for negatively-scored answers and questions immediately after closure
Wow, it's surprisingly easy to flood the front page trolling the low quality posts queue
yeah it is
3:51 AM
@MarkTrapp As you wish.
eeeeee one more
I'm not sure what you mean.
The answer on that question is the last post in the low quality posts queue
3:54 AM
and I ran out of delete votes :(
I see 42. I must be lazy.
Get busy voting to deleting or get busy dying
I would make a comment about how mine have been at 0 since the day the new review system was released...
@MarkTrapp I vote to delete everything I can.
@pixel wat, when the new review system was released there was like 1000 things in it. You're even 150 posts behind Alok
3:56 AM
I used a lot of 'Not Sure' for posts I wanted to instinctively mark as crap
on the grounds I usually get criticise for misuse of 'not an answer'
and then subsequently got flooded by people complaining that I had commented on a 2 year old question with the "this is not an answer" autotext
and I don't get to vote to delete
I did pretty much skip every single League of Legends badly formatted no capitalisation random spelling with no punctuation question/answer though - since I don't have the knowledge to correct them
Alok cleared his queue pretty much on the first day too
and he has LoL knowledge
breaking bad episode available
4:13 AM
I wish my internet connection was as fast as some of these other people
4:29 AM
@RavenDreamer I like my solutions more.
the stargate atlantis superfan trailers are funny
and once again it's getting light
4:45 AM
true story, 40% of the girls that I went to school with are either pregnant or mothers already
browsing facebook is bad for my sanity
40% of the girls I went to high school with were either pregnant or mothers already within a month of graduation
lol read the responses to this us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5589544996
Q: Best driving simulator for learning how to drive?

yuraI want to buy steer wheel and driving simulator(for PC) to teach myself how to drive. So I'm interest what driving simulator provides best physics emulation(1) and is about driving on a streets(2). First is more important, since I'm trying to feel how to control the car

Q: How to enable mouse pointer in Borderlands?

HAPTKHow would I go about enabling my mouse pointer for aiming purposes in my Borderlands PC game? I'm sick and tired of cross-hairs lying to me!

Q: Mass effect 3 characters weapon dmge

EddyI would like to know the top characters and their classes that deal weapon damage. And inm looking for partners for ps3. Id. asskickerr16

@Lazers quality mass effect 3 question just there
@OrigamiRobot I conclude that somehow I managed to pick up a reasonable education whilst everybody I know still mixes up their, there, and they're...
some of these status updates make me facepalm so hard
@pixel I am in a similar boat.
My school routinely had the lowest test scores in the school system
4:58 AM
the their/there/they're and your/you're thing is one of my pet peeves though
I use to get annoyed by that, but now I done gived up
one of them goes "im moving to japan"
response #1 "good, fuck off"
response #2 "whatever"

Q: Mail agility/stamina and intellect/stamina leatherworking gear for shaman

imaginativeI am leveling a shaman with enhancement as main spec and resto as secondary spec. He is decked in heirloom now, but level 80 is approaching at which point my gear will be weak to continue soloing as fast as I am now in cata zones for levels 80-85.

Q: Advice on fanless graphics card sub €200

alexleonardI'm looking for advice on the best fanless graphics card preferably no more than €150-200. I'm using a dual-monitor setup so would need dual DVI ports. This is also my day-job work system and audio production station - hence the desire to keep it very quiet. I'm assuming a water cooled system w...

Needs VtCs, IMO
7:25 AM
@RilgonArcsinh so true, but there are not a lot on in the morning in EU
new discussion time now

I just found user @splattered bits who has been a member here for much longer than me. yay for him.
Now, I wrote my profile from pure personalization, however his profile is practically identical.
now I feel like i ripped him off, even tho its unrelated. he was here first.
should I change my profile?
I don't see the resemblance of your profiles (I got the wrong profile?)
our first lines are neigh identical
7:39 AM
It is a list of things you are, you just happen to have a lot in common, I don't see any reason to change it unless you plan to change your self ;)
2 hours later…
9:21 AM
Gah, Don't Fear the Reaper is bloody hard
My brain is melting...
@YiJiang huh?
SpaceChem level
@YiJiang oooh
I need a hint, seriously. The level seems impossible
I didn't get past level 2 of that game. I'm no help
9:31 AM
Q: What options are there to expand the inventory?

SpatlapIn Guild Wars 1, there were a handful of options to get a bigger inventory/carrying space. Examples are the special bags that offered more slots than four, or bags in which you could stuff weapons and armor. Is such a feature available in GW2 as well ? The other day I found a different colored ...

10:02 AM
There's a bunch of GW2 spam right now
They might be hidden because they have less than -4 votes, so use the questions tab to see them
Yeah. All by the same newly created account; is there a responsibility level at which someone can ban accounts?
Mods can delete accounts altogether
Members can delete posts using flags
Right. Edited and flagged all three I saw.
Anyway, break's over. Back to my actual job.
@YiJiang I don't even remember where I got stuck in that game
@badp Was it the station?
10:11 AM
Q: What's The Gears In Guild Wars 2?

sherrysunThey decided that making Guild Wars 2 was the best way for them. When it comes to the topic of gears on guild wars 2, whether players can succeed in the combat of GW 2 will be less relied on the gears and items players have in this game than that they have in the games that developed by Blizzard....

10:28 AM
@badp *flags as offensive*
10:41 AM
Q: Playing Diablo 3 behind a proxy?

TheGateKeeperDoes anyone know if this is possible? I tried changing the "Internet Options" for the computer but it only seems to work on the launcher. Thanks.

11:11 AM
@YiJiang There's anything else in the tag? :P
Name fits quality of subject, edit approved
11:23 AM
WTF? I've had all of those features in the past
Let's see if the drivers not on Windows Update have the same issue
SpaceChem uses, hmm, OpenGL?
C#, right. Which probably uses DirectX on Windows
yeah, I've had issues with OpenGL in other games too under Windows 8
and there's sparse hints on the 'net about the Windows Update drivers (automagically downloaded and installed without user interaction) having limited support for OpenGL
It pains me to download and install drivers though because it adds all sorts of nonsense like the nVidia Control Panel and whatever other nonsense
So which mission are you on now?
@YiJiang No idea, I need to recover my profile
also the game runs at 3 FPS
yay offers for free tanks, premium access and whatnot other crap for World of Tanks!
I just can't wait man!
I'm sure a happy customer now.
From Steam?
11:36 AM
no, nVidia
Windows 8 problem found
@RilgonArcsinh har har har
Windows 8 drammatically improved out-of-the-box setup wrt Windows 7 and anything before that
Windows 7 didn't have drivers for anything in my computer
except well the fallback ones for the most basic stuff
it's now at Ubuntu-like standards. Almost.
You are officially the first person I have ever heard say that
I have literally never met another person who didn't have 90%+ driver location natively with Win7
Also citing Ubuntu as the standard to strive for makes my side hurt from laughter.
@RilgonArcsinh On this machine I didn't have graphics, I didn't have wireless, I didn't have anything but basic screen, keyboard, basic touchpad and USB
whereas Ubuntu did all of this and more
(except for 3D acceleration, but that's only because of nVidia.)
Windows 8 didn't have drivers for my memory card reader and apparently the OpenGL api but that's it. It also detected the wireless printer and did everything with one click.
Whereas on my rig I literally had every piece of hardware install vendor drivers right out of the box, so shrug
11:49 AM
I can only talk about my experience so counter-shrug
yep, installing the actual drivers made the warning vanish and the game run at previous speed
With a starting sample question like the one this proposal has, It's a wonder it hasn't taken off yet:
Sex games & toys

Proposed Q&A site for those whom love adult games and discussion about sex toys and machines here,experts and new users welcome

Currently in definition.

@LessPop_MoreFizz "What article of clothing should I remove first when playing strip poker?"
@OrigamiRobot A: the watch.
@badp I'm not wearing any watches wink
@OrigamiRobot You are not a good strip poker player, to start with a handicap like that.
11:57 AM
That question should be closed anyway. isn't a very constructive question type.
Speaking of non-constructive questions, I actually came up with something I would ask if it wasn't so nebulous/non-constructive in a huff today at work
What the hell is so goddamned special/unique about Minecraft that server administrators think they need ridiculous hardware specs like RAID 5'd SSDs and 32+GB of RAM for their stupid MC servers?
@RilgonArcsinh Java
I can totally see the RAM usage
I dunno about RAID 5
@RilgonArcsinh Basically, Minecraft was made by one dude with Java, so it;s a horrible inefficient bloated mess that runs like shit.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I still refuse to believe there is a usage case where one fucking game can require 32GB of RAM.
I've seen fucking a hundred-instance ESXi hypervisor run stably with less.
12:14 PM
@RilgonArcsinh Maybe there's some hidden code in there running bitcoin routines for notch /conspiracy
Q: PS Vita: What is the use of the traveled distance in the Near application?

Jasper de VriesThe Near app shows I've traveled quite a bit with my PS Vita, but what is the use of the distance traveled? Will it unlock stuff at certain distances? Is there a friends ranking?

@Lazers Why can't a device just generate a statistic for a statistics sake? Why does everything have to have a leaderboard and achievements and unlocks?
@LessPop_MoreFizz killallachievements.exe && killallminecrafts.exe
Unrelatedly, I am going to try healing Polaris when I get home
I predict this will end in tragedy and dismemberment via cthulhumonster
12:29 PM
@RilgonArcsinh Just remember shields generate pre-healaggro
@LessPop_MoreFizz So if I preemptively shield, that threat is "stored" and dropped on me at engage?
@RilgonArcsinh Yes.
Finally got meta fanatic today.
I got up to the 80s 2 or 3 times before but then always missed a single day.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Interesting, so I should avoid any shielding prior? Can I still build up blood resources with Blood Shield and then cancel the buff and avoid threat?
12:43 PM
@RilgonArcsinh Not sure.
@badp So... any luck getting SpaceChem working?
@LessPop_MoreFizz I'll see. Thanks for the heads up, that would have caught me off-guard.
I figured prepping an Aegis pre-pull was wise, but guess not :)
55 mins ago, by badp
yep, installing the actual drivers made the warning vanish and the game run at previous speed
Ooo, okay. So which mission are you on?
@LessPop_MoreFizz because as Raymond Chen says you don't just track statistics for statistics' sake!
12:46 PM
how the hell did I get rep capped before waking up
@YiJiang I still need to grab my save file
@badp Is "Ooo, purdy numbers and bar charts" a good excuse?
The excuse is "brb Samson v Satan"
I'm in Catacombs 1
Heh, good luck
(that would be the third level. Sheol is, uh, the 9th.)
12:48 PM
Toward earlier discussion, I'm really glad I am of the sort that doesn't give the slightest hint of a damn about achievements unless they give me some sort of tangible reward that I want.
@RilgonArcsinh Aren't achievements tangible?!??!?
They are shiny, but they ain't edible
Q: What are the differences between the free version and the 'pay' one?

happy_emiI'm just beginning to play this game but I'm a bit confused: do I have any tactical advantage with the pay version? Do I get more champions, more skills? Or it's just a matter of cosmetic stuff?

@badp No.
To wit: Doing an achievement that gives me a mount or a title I want = worth my time; doing an achievement for the sake of doing it = fuck that noise
<gnomeslice>Have you given The Binding of Isaac a look? All but 5 (6 with the DLC) of the achievements unlock items.</gnomeslice>
