13 days is nearly two weeks...
 
I'm here, for a little while at least.
(though also trying to debug something subtle at work, so may be intermittently unresponsive)

o/
Shall I fire up Lens?
 
hmmmmmm
I guess it might add some comedy
 
7:46 PM
double that, hmm
 
Advertisement posted in TNB, if that helps :/
 
I suppose Lens is still in its perpetually confused state?
 
well yeah won't fix via disuse :P
 
Then we need to fix the disuse
 
@GentlePurpleRain Go ahead, start her up. We'll see what happens...
 
7:48 PM
I suppose that we can fire it up and let it whine constantly while we're playing like we know ignoring it completely... :D
 
I think it's at the point where it needs a complete rewrite.
It still provides some benefit, though, with keeping track of contacts and such.
And starring/unstarring clues.
Who is defending?
 
what it needs is a value of a long presence... they call it experience... ;)
 
Anyone want to defend?
 
Ok.
Defending: P
 
New game ID is 45 (you can use this to !resume an unfinished game if something goes wrong).

(Multiple guesses will be ignored until the first is confirmed.)
 
You guessed correctly. GentlePurpleRain must give up a letter!
 
Shouldn't that be 2 * τ?
 
7:57 PM
No
 
Ok, apparently I don't know my math and/or Greek well enough.
 
tau = 2 pi. Think "turn" as a mnemonic

though not many people actually use tau rather than pi
