Unless you're dead-set on Git, I'd try TortoiseHg, run the installer and you're good to go.
 
I should probably be taking notes of this conversation for @Mana's @FAE / @RavenDreamer fanfc.
 
@Wipqozn I have no idea what you're talking about.
This entire conversation has been about co-op. Why. What did you think we were discussing?
 
craigslist / missed connections
 
@RavenDreamer Co-op.
 
12:03 AM
@NickT I haven't looked into Mercurial, but I'll look into it too.
Thanks for the advice.
 
Blizzard really needs a better download service
 
Blizzard really needs better service.
 
@Sterno fine by me, does it say "no problems detected"?
 
I get all of like 2 connections
and yeah, no problems detected
But I mean, even without peer to peer, it shouldn't crawl along so slow
 
if I disable P2P I get ~300 KB/s
w/ it it's bouncing around between 600-1200
I have 3 "peers" with URL's as IDs, I assume they're just using HTTP which give ~100 KB/s each
I'm assuming all the hashed ones are using BT
 
12:14 AM
Yeah. I don't know what's up. Mine will go okay for like a minute, then just stall out for a while
without P2P, it barely even moves
 
do you just have "http://attdist.blizzard.com/d3...", "http://blizzard.vo.llnwd.net/o16/..." and/or "http://ak.worldofwarcraft.com.edgesuite.net" in the peer list?
 
And I have 121 of the 122 ports it suggests forwarding forwarded
@NickT yes
 
and the p2p checkbox is enabling it?
 
I'm not sure what you mean. I can toggle it
 
I forgot if checked = p2p enabled or disabled
 
12:16 AM
enabled
I'd prefer not using P2P anyway, but it at least lets me get SOME rate
 
Anyone buying Orion: Dino Beatdown?
 
is it not throttled?
@Sterno even then, at ~100KB/s it will still be downloaded well before you can play it anyways :P
have to leave computer on though, which is kind of a bear
 
Maybe. 100k is when it's going fast for me :P
And I'm not complaining I'll not get it in time. I'm complaining it sucks! :)
 
@NickT I've been sitting at 7.60 GB downloaded for the last ten minutes. It's like it's finished... But it won't finish.
 
12:20 AM
Oh, right. Diablo 3 exists. I keep forgetting that due to my lack of interest in the game.
 
@Wipqozn I'm only downloading it in case I get the grant. >.>
 
@Fluttershy haha, nice
I used to be excited for the game, but the beta really turned me off of it.
 
@Wipqozn Which is a pretty big if since they decided not to honor the free carryover.
 
Something I've stated in here many times, so no point in going into it again.
@Fluttershy ah, I see.
 
@Fluttershy could be some slow client is holding up a chunk; the dl'r doesn't quit anyways when done, it still uploads to other people
 
12:22 AM
wEll, I need to get ready for bed.
Good night all.
 
@Fluttershy You can download it without owning it?
@Fluttershy What free carryover?

Q: Can I access Diablo III pre-load without being force to purchase it directly from Battle.Net?

HurdaI found our local retailer with better price for digital copy of Diablo III. He will start distributing them on 00:01 5/15/2012 - I would like to have the game pre-installed and just activate it later. Is it possible for me to pre-download the game client from Battle.net if I have not purchased...

 
Maybe I should see if my wife's computer downloads it faster
Though now that I've got damn near every port forward to me, that might not work so hot
 
@RavenDreamer I dunno... Consider this the experiment. And, the one that Seth said might carry over for those of us who completed the KoA:Reckoning grant, and didn't do the ME3 grant.
 
@RavenDreamer I think the "do your duty for this grant and you're guaranteed to receive the next grant?"
 
12:24 AM
@Fluttershy Ah, nm. I don't know anything about that.
 
@RavenDreamer You commented on the meta post about it. >.>
 
I'm occasionally of the mind that in order to apply to be selected for the grant you need to provide proof that you've already pre-ordered the game and put up your own money (so only those who are actually invested in it regardless will be funded) but that would be trivial to con
 
@NickT If you already bought it, it wouldn't be much of a grant, would it? Especially since they're no longer doing reimbursement?
 
you'd still be getting reimbursed
 
@Fluttershy Yeah, dunno why they're not doing reimbursements anymore.
@Fluttershy I think I also deleted that comment when I was proven wrong.
 
12:29 AM
@RavenDreamer You must have, as I don't see it any more. >.>

Q: The site should use a Killscreen image for HTTP/500 Server Error pages

JoshAs badp proposed in chat, this site should use a killscreen image for HTTP/500 Server Error error pages:

is that image used? how do I force a 500
 
12:55 AM
Oh, wow.
POTUS just announced his personal support for gay marriage.
 
@RavenDreamer Who?
 
President Of The United States.
Brain couldn't think of how to spell Ombama
...apparently it still can't.
 
FAE
@RavenDreamer lol
 
It's like Osama but with a B
@RavenDreamer is this sometime today? There was some confusion apparently on yesterday's Daily Show: thedailyshow.com/full-episodes/tue-may-8-2012-ivo-daalder
and re: yesterday's guest, sounds like a boatload of fun in Chicago with the NATO summit coming up
was told it looked like a proper riot zone
 
See, people? It's been proven: Politics kills The Bridge.
 
1:11 AM
 
@NickT That's so fresh and witty I don't think I can ever stop laughing.
 
So, courts in Japan are saying that micro-transactions within games may be illegal. o.o
 
@RavenDreamer Welcome to like 5 hours ago
Everything seems old when I hear of it first on twitter
 
@BenBrocka Hipster.
 
@BenBrocka 24 hour news is awful, mmkay
 
1:22 AM
@NickT I don't follow a news cycle, I just hear things when they happen
 
@BenBrocka I saw it when I got my new computer at work and had to use IE to download Firefox.
 
which is how it should be
 
@NickT ImageNotFound
 
NPR or bust
 
I just happened to hear about it near when it first happened
 
1:22 AM
@OrigamiRobot IE is always the first program I open on a new Windows computer, so I can promptly download Chrome
2
I used to listen to NPR podcasts then I realized I don't care about 95% of politics or their guest speakers
 
@BenBrocka IE should just come with bookmarks to the various other flavors of browsers.
 
It sounds like IE10 sucks even less than 9, but thanks to 6-8 and no updates outside of the operating system, IE will forever be that browser
 
@BenBrocka Yea well molten lead in the eye sounds better than molten lead in both eyes
 
LMFAO
> I'M DISTRICT PLAYER OF THE YEAR
 
@GnomeSlice The guy asking us to not post MLP images posts a video about MLP?
 
1:31 AM
@Fluttershy It's not a MLP video.
I'm trying to understand why.
 
@GnomeSlice It's a video about bronies. Who are in turn MLP related.
 
Just watch the part I linked to.
That black guy is hilarious.
> IT CHANGED MY LIFE MAN
 
@OrigamiRobot IE9 actually renders fonts very well. MS has a good UX design team but they must not be allowed to work on IE. A browser can never be worth a damn if it can only be updated with the OS...oh, and freaking Quirksmode
 
> SIR, GET YOUR CROTCH OUT OF THE CAMERA.
This is a pretty good video, actually. Some really good interviews. I think I see where you pony people are coming from now.
 
1:38 AM
.........
 
FAE
@BenBrocka ...that is surprisingly adorable for a Rarity pic
 
@FAE Excuse you
 
FAE
@BenBrocka C'mon, you have to admit she's usually not the same kind of cute that you'd attribute to say, Fluttershy or Pinkie Pie
 
Hm.
I think "cockles of one's heart" is wrong.
Unless you actually have clams where your heart should be.
 
@RavenDreamer Cloyster.
 
1:44 AM
@RavenDreamer it simply refers to the chambers of the heart I think
 
Cockle is the common name for a group of (mostly) small, edible, saltwater clams, marine bivalve molluscs in the family Cardiidae. Various species of cockles live in sandy sheltered beaches throughout the world. The distinctive rounded shells of cockles are symmetrical, and are heart-shaped when viewed from the end. In most but not all genera there are numerous radial ribs. For an exception, see the genus Laevicardium, the egg cockles, which have very smooth shells. The mantle has three apertures (inhalant, exhalant, and pedal) for siphoning water and for the foot to protrude. Co...

@FAE G'night
 
DAMNIT ONEBOX, WHY YOU NO RESPECT ANCHORS.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz the link still goes to the anchor
 
1:46 AM
> Differing derivations of this phrase have been proposed, either directly from the perceived heart-shape of a cockleshell, or indirectly (the scientific name for the type genus of the family is Cardium, from the Greek for heart), or from the Latin diminutive of the word heart, corculum. Another proposed derivation is from the Latin for the ventricles of the heart, cochleae cordis, where the second word is an inflected form of cor, heart, while cochlea is the Latin for snail.
@BenBrocka Yes, but that means you still need to click.
 
Soldat 1.6.3. has been released, and the game is apparently now 10 years old. Cool!
 
Onebox isn't THAT smart
 
@BenBrocka Well it should be.
 
Shit like this is so dumb. It took me less than three seconds...
PEPOLE. Y U POST DIS.

1:49 AM
The irony is palpable
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah, I know. I hate it when people I know post dumb shit like this and think it's awesome.
 
I hate you, Blizzard Downloader
 
FYI, I'm just sharing it because it told me to.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I think balpha's gone on vacation...I'll make a note to slip into his house, gain access to his computer, and update the code before he gets back.
 
1:50 AM
@MarkTrapp I never had a good handle on irony.
 
@Sterno Time remaining: ETERNITY
 
user2334
only 15 years: just in time for the D4 release
 
Yeah
Firewall disabled, ports forwarded, a prayer to a god I don't believe in offered, yet nothing!
Which SE site would be appropriate for asking questions about how to set up your router?
 
@GnomeSlice That long?
I wish blizz would release a non-WoW warcraft game
 
Is there any reason these ads never change?
I can't imagine they actually work...
 
1:56 AM
Oh god, reminds me of Ebony
 
@GnomeSlice Maybe they do? In the whole "so bad it must be good" ?
 
user2334
@BenBrocka Evony
 
Oh, right
 
BEHOLD
 
I always preferred Ibory myself
 
1:57 AM
@BenBrocka HAH. 'Ebony'.
@spugsley ?
 
@spugsley patiently waits for the reveal
 
@TimStone Sounds like a plan!
 
No reveal. Just 'behold'
 
@spugsley Missing a 'Gentlemen'.
 
seemed more fun than 'hey guys'
 
1:59 AM
@spugsley ...That's no fun at all...
 
@spugsley Behold implies you showing us something.
 
@GnomeSlice for you it wasn't. For me, it was awesome
 
HEYYY YOUUUU GUYSSS
 
@Hola, Ms. @spugsley.
 
@Fluttershy Dude, she's married you perv.
@spugsley Well LAH DEE DAH
 
1:59 AM
HAI, EHVRYBAHDY!
 
@GnomeSlice Tell that to @RavenDreamer =P
 
"Hi, Dr. Nick!"
Pfft. What is marriage?
 
@Fluttershy bahahaha. Is there some spugsley+ravendreamer meme I don't know about?
 
A travesty in NC, that's for sure.
 
2:00 AM
@spugsley I would assume so, since you two have been perpetuating it for days now. <.<
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz It gives me a reason to travel to Europe, and allows me to put time in for "Corporate Espionage." It's perfect.
 
@RavenDreamer no fucking kidding
 
NC?
 
@Fluttershy forgive me, I didn't realize it had caught on with everybody
 
2:01 AM
@spugsley I think you overestimate the amount of new material we come up with in here.
 
@spugsley Apparently, folks are unaware of the ongoing verbal repartee betwixt ourselves.
@StrixVaria I live in one of the red counties, damn it!
 
@StrixVaria TBQH, that chart doesn't really say much.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Well, it does have the total numbers in the corner
 
Like, yes, all the counties that voted against A1 are highly educated.
But, aside from the 2 very dark green counties over near Raleigh(?), the split is fairly even amongst the other 'educated' counties for/against.
 
Lol, Super Office Stress looks sweet.
 
2:07 AM
@RavenDreamer ahem
 
Also, HOLY SHIT, MEGABYTE PUNCH LOOKS AMAZING.
 
@IanPugsley You're always welcome to join, good sir!
(Besides, I have it on good authority that you could beat me up if we were to ever meet in person)
 
@RavenDreamer I don't know if I'm comfortable "witty repartee-ing" with a man
 
@IanPugsley Fair enough. Shall we swap adorable kitten pictures instead?
 
Stupid Blizzard Download problem solved. The answer? Change a setting in Internet Explorer, a browser I don't even use!

Q: Level creation save points

AlbortI'm a big fan of the larger, multi-part puzzles. Now that I can marvel in my own mind-bending magnificence with the Perpetual Testing Initiative, is it possible to install autosave points into a level I have created?

 
@RavenDreamer I vote adorable kitten pictures because kittens are awesome
 
@RavenDreamer I've dealt with his type before. Just get him drunk enough, and he'll repartee with anything.
4
 
@Fluttershy I'd say you don't know me, but you left the "witty" out, so apparently you do.
 
^^This fine fellow is well under way with the "drinking" bit.
 
@RavenDreamer Where... where did you find my picture? O.o
 
2:15 AM
@Fluttershy A little shark told me.
 
@RavenDreamer Dude with the headdress in back is kind of a creeper tbqh.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz That's Mana. He's taking fanfic notes.
 
@RavenDreamer Like I said, kind of a creeper.
 
@IanPugsley You never seem to complain when we repartee
 
The plot thickens!
Time to write a clopfic about the Bridge.
 
2:17 AM
@Fluttershy a what
 
@GnomeSlice You... don't want to know... One of the worst things to come out of MLP... Ever.
 
@Fluttershy ...Please tell me it doesn't involve sex of any kind.
 
Mmmm, sexual relations.
 
@GnomeSlice It's fan fiction. Of course it involves sex.
5
 
@GnomeSlice It most certainly does. <.< MLP themed erotic fanfiction = Clopfic.
 
2:19 AM
@Fluttershy I just googled that. I feel terrible now.
 
You people disgust me. Completely.
 
@AshleyNunn You can have what's left of my brain-bleach.
 
@Fluttershy Oh thank goodness
 
@GnomeSlice See, I didn't actually know the answer from experience. I just managed to figure it out because this stuff isn't hard to figure out and I am not a naive teenager.
Also, I suppose, because I had to write a paper about the K'n'S Ladies back in college.
 
@Fluttershy Yeah, okay, there was a guy like that in the video I linked above.
But I think it was a 'fake' person.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I'm not familiar with that.
 
2:20 AM
@GnomeSlice I'm sure they exist. But I assure you, we're not all like that.
 
I never said you were.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Do I want to know?
 
@GnomeSlice The K'n'S Ladies were basically the inventors of Slash Fiction.
 
Did you watch the video, by the way? It was actually very interesting.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Ah.
 
2:21 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz ...I'm not familiar with that either.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Context clues!
 
K'n'S stands for Kirk 'n' Spock. They wrote for zines back in the 70's.
 
@GnomeSlice What, slashfic?
 
@AshleyNunn Yeah, that.
 
@GnomeSlice slashfiction is the generic term for erotic fan fiction. (Generally, but not exclusively, featuring homosexual relationships between characters that are not so inclined in canon.)
 
2:21 AM
@Fluttershy Is it really called Clopfic? I'm too scared to google and find out.
 
2 mins ago, by Ashley Nunn
@Fluttershy I just googled that. I feel terrible now.
 
@Sterno I've never confirmed it, but I believe so.
 
Okay, no.

Excuse me for a moment. I need to go transfer the throw-up in my mouth into a garbage can.

@GnomeSlice O.O
@Fluttershy No. NOT OKAY
 
LOLOLOLOLOL
 
@AshleyNunn ^this, please change topics. I do not feel happy. :(
 
There's some MLP I can get into.
 
@GnomeSlice Let's not go too far... >.>
 
This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.
And one of the creepiest.
 
2:24 AM
TIME TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT.
 
@Fluttershy It scares me that there is a farther to go. (Please, no one prove me right)
 
Why would you... who... I can't even...
 
Also... It's sad that I can recognize both of those...
 
@Fluttershy Nah, so can I
 
@AshleyNunn It's the internet, the rabbit hole always goes deeper.
 
2:24 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz That's what scares me
 
@AshleyNunn Proving you right would get me banned from The Bridge... permanently.
 
@Fluttershy Then definitely don't do it. I would be sad.
 
TIME TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT.

Oh my GOD, all of these anti-clopfic images are hysterical.
 
2:26 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz Politics or religion?
 
HAHAHAHAHAHA
I'm crying here
 
@Fluttershy Religious politics

Tetris on a laser harp!
 
@GnomeSlice Is... is that a giraffe?
 
2:29 AM
OOOOooh. Laser Harp.
I want a laser harp.
 
@BenBrocka That is pretty much the correct reaction since @GnomeSlice refuses to CHANGE THE SUBJECT.
 
FINE.
 
@GnomeSlice What a dumbass, just turn the skulls upside down
 
@BenBrocka ... what?
 
2:32 AM
20 days till Manhattanhenge! Wheeeeeeee!
 
@GnomeSlice to form a serviceable cup
 
@BenBrocka I would figure most of the wine would run out the foramen magnum
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz ?
 
@BenBrocka That would make the eyes even lower.
 
the hole for the eyes via the optic nerves is a lot smaller
 
2:34 AM
@AshleyNunn The two days a year that the setting sun is exactly aligned with the east/west street grid of manhattan.
It makes for an incredibly dramatic sunset.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz That sounds awesome
 
Example:
 
what bearing is "east"/"west" in Manhattan?
 
@NickT It's offset from 'true' cardinals by I believe 30 degrees.
 
This is one of very few songs that can actually give me chills.
The beginning is amazing
 
2:42 AM
@GnomeSlice Now I wanna play Mirror's Edge even more than Orion: Dino Beatdown.
 
@Fluttershy I'd almost forgotten about Dino Beatdown since the last time I researched it.
 
@GnomeSlice You and @Mana were super excited about it earlier. o.O It got starred.
 
@Fluttershy ? Oh, no I mean months ago.
 
Oh.
 
Apr 2 at 15:07, by Ian Pugsley
A game where you fly around in a jetpack shooting at dinosaurs while avoiding horrible dinosaur-related death? Yes please.

@LessPop_MoreFizz that is gorgeous.
 
@AshleyNunn And terrifying.
 
@GnomeSlice Whyso
 
@OrigamiRobot hugs her cat
 
@OrigamiRobot NO! NO NO NO NO!
I hate you
THIS IS JUST LIKE THAT FUTURAMA EPISODE
 
2:50 AM
Ah yeah. That episode, and the one about the clover. |:
 
@spugsley They retconned that to not be horribly depressing.
 
@OrigamiRobot This is why I love dogs...
 
Hey, was there an awkward conversation?
 
I'm not sure awkward is the word for it.
 
@Brant!
 
2:52 AM
@Mana!
 
@Fluttershy Now I have to go watch videos of dogs greeting soldiers.
 
@OrigamiRobot Another reason I love dogs.
 
@OrigamiRobot Oh my goodness...
Dogs truly are wonderful creatures.
 
@Brant How have you been?
 
2:54 AM
@OrigamiRobot retconned?
 
@TimStone Oh dear god. I wish I hadn't scrolled up.
@GnomeSlice I'm so sorry.
 
@spugsley Retroactive Continuity
 
@Mana Hm?
 
@OrigamiRobot wtf?
 
For the things you had to see.
 
2:55 AM
@Mana I TRIED TO WARN YOU MAN. I promise to do better next time.
 
Are you apologizing to me, or for/about me.
 
@spugsley They fixed it with time travel.
 
Oh.
 
For you.
 
@mana Pretty good.
 
2:56 AM
or about you.
@Brant coooooooooooooool
 
@Brant !
It has been a while!
 
I feel like a lot of the people who used to hang out on The Bridge regularly have been kinda disappearing here and there.
 
OMFG There are videos of people saying goodbye to their dogs who are about to be put to sleep!
 
It's because they weren't properly chained to their computers. This is what happens when we let people escape.
 
being replaced with TNG of Bridgers.
 
2:57 AM
I've been around... Just busy.
 
@Mana Ever heard of 'ClopFic'?
If no... yes, there was an awkward conversation.
 
@GnomeSlice Hahahahahahahahhahahaaahahahahahah NO.
 
what are we talking about? O-o
 
NO I HAVE NOT HEARD OF CLOPFIC.
 
wtf is Clopfic?!??

AND I NEVER WILL. AGAIN.

@Mana Tell ME O-o
@TimStone TELL ME!
I have to know!
 
@OrigamiRobot THAT IS HORRIBLE AND SAD
 
@spugsley God no you don't.
 
@OrigamiRobot sometimes I wonder why I come in this room
