@Wipqozn It'd make sense if he'd be her.
 
@ArdaXi Exactly.
 
She's nothing like him though.
 
uh?
Have you seen the passion with which @GraceNote killed game-rec with fire?
 
@badp Thank you.
 
@badp Why'd you think I was talking about @GraceNote?
 
9:13 PM
@ArdaXi in that case, did you see the way the pyro burns everything with fire?
 
No.
scribbles more notes, makes note to order more file paper
 
Even if my native element is fire (and putting aside the fire golem theory), I'm actually more of an earth elemental preference for what it's worth.
 
attempts to make more notes on sparse paper
 
What can I do with crates if I don't want to buy keys?
 
@ArdaXi I'd loan you some paper, but I'm greedy.
 
9:17 PM
Do people trade them?
 
@JuanManuel Trade them for goods
 
@JuanManuel trade them
 
@Wipqozn grabs @Wipqozn's file, makes notes
 
or give them away. I gave my engineer crate to @badp
 
Ah, gifts... that's nice
I wouldn't know for what to trade them
 
9:18 PM
It varies by the crate.
I think it's just a pain in the ass myself.
 
@Juan I suggest prodding @Powerlord, I think he's very knowledgeable of the fluctuating economy.
 
Which reminds me if, if anyone needs crates, let me know. Happy to trade away all my crates.
 
@GraceNote will do, thanks
 
@GraceNote I'm surprised he didn't magically appear the moment TF2 was brought up
 
we hadn't named it until your comment
 
9:19 PM
@Wipqozn @Powerlord is probably getting ready to go home, since it's about that time of day now.
 
This is my stuff: tf2b.com/?id=kromak
 
@JuanManuel oh god that's a mess
 
:)
I smelt some stuff (duplicates) to lower the quantity
(smelt? smelted?)
 
recycle
 
@JuanManuel Smelted please.
Smelt means something else entirely, in the past tense.
 
9:24 PM
@JuanManuel smelted
 
@NickT I used to go smelting a lot as a kid
 
is that ok or should I keep the items?
 
Smelt as a past simple is an alternative form of "smelled".
 
I was planning on blueprinting some hats
@ArdaXi thanks
 
9:26 PM
Although, nobody says smelt any more, in that sense. Americanization! >:(
 
@ArdaXi I use smelt that way if I use smelt as a past tense verb!
 
What's the highest amount of words you can use to describe the conjugation of a verb in english
 
@NickT ∞, give or take.
 
like what's the tense of "I had been having thoughts about killing people"
 
oh, I have Jarate... I wonder when that happened
 
9:28 PM
@NickT Past perfect continuous.
 
@NickT Just be glad that the case doesn't also impact the nouns the verb modifies.
 
For the record, I have the following crates: 23, 24, 25 (x2), 26
Ping me if you want any of them
 
user30
oh btw, if anyone is missing any weapons, I likely have a few of them
 
@badp, which video got you the Frontline Field Recorder ach?
 
@ThomasMcDonald do you have a degreaser?
 
user30
9:32 PM
@Raven I have 5.
 
@JuanManuel The one that was in the blog post I linked on Reddit
 
@ThomasMcDonald That is an impressive amount of degreasers.
Do you just never craft anything?
 
 
wow
 
Purple being "No link referrer - embedded player"
 
user30
9:35 PM
@Raven Link me up to your steam profile
 
(The ups-and-downs of viewership at each moment in your video, compared to videos of similar length. The higher the graph, the hotter your video: fewer viewers are leaving your video and they may also be rewinding to watch that point in the video again. Audience attention is an overall measure of your video's ability to retain its audience.)
 
user30
is that interaction?
 
@ThomasMcDonald I can never figure out a good way to get my profile link from within the steam client itself.
 
user30
you can turn that on
 
@RavenDreamer Simply click on the 'Community' big label
the URL is in the address bar
 
9:37 PM
@badp My steam client doesn't have an address bar.
 
user30
@badp not if you don't have it set to do that
 
@ThomasMcDonald Do you have an extra Conniver's Kunai or Big Earner?
 
user30
Settings -> Interface -> Display Steam URL address bar when available
 
@RavenDreamer View → Se...
 
user30
@Wipqozn yes yes
 
9:38 PM
You can alternatively right click and pick 'Copy URL address of page'
 
@RavenDreamer Mind if I friend you?
 
@ThomasMcDonald That's a highly unintuitive place to put it.
 
@ThomasMcDonald What would you like for both of them ?
 
@FallenAngelEyes I would be furious if you did not!
I'm sure there was a better adjectival choice than "furious".
 
user30
@Wipqozn a scrap?
 
9:39 PM
Couldn't think that fast, though.
 
@RavenDreamer Is this why there is RAGE in your name?
 
@ThomasMcDonald that works
For both, or each?
 
user30
for both
 
okay, sounds good
 
scrap metal?
 
9:39 PM
@FallenAngelEyes No... this is why RAGE is in my name.
4
 
Can we trade directly through steam @ThomasMcDonald?
 
@RavenDreamer How about apoplectic?
 
user30
@Wipqozn yes
 
@RavenDreamer ...wut
 
It's like furious++
 
9:40 PM
@ThomasMcDonald feel free to log on steam then, when you have a chance
 
(I have no idea about the value of items... is scrap metal high value or you just want to get rid of the weapons)
 
user30
@Raven I think I just added you on my alt
 
@JuanManuel 1 scrap is about as cheap as it gets
 
@JuanManuel Make 3 scrap metal in 1 reclaimed
 
@sjohnston +1 for the 1984 reference.
 
9:40 PM
Make 3 reclaimed in 1 refined
Make 2 refined and 1 reclaimed in 1 key via trading
or trade it for hats or whatnot
 
@FallenAngelEyes For a while I went by "Googly-Eyed Pistachio Lobster" -- which was a memento I had picked up from my trip to Australia, 8 years back.
 
@Wipqozn so it's a way of gifting it then
 
metal is basically the currency of the game
 
@FallenAngelEyes Then I found the linked image, and decided an alteration was necessary.
 
@RavenDreamer That is a bit more colorful than Raven Dreamer
 
9:42 PM
@badp is it more common to trade for metal than for other items?
 
@RavenDreamer Suddenly I'm very glad I stuck with a more conventional display name than my norm.
 
@JuanManuel Well, for common item that's the currency
 
@ThomasMcDonald thanks. Did you make a new steam account?
 
@GraceNote And for a while after that, I was "I always Random Zoey".
I was into Left 4 Dead, you see.
 
If you want to get in higher value trading you're a horrible person it goes up from keys
 
user30
9:42 PM
no, it's an alt
 
I could tell
 
@ThomasMcDonald probably has the conversion table going up
 
@RavenDreamer Hahaha my guy friends had that prob too whenever I didn't play
 
My old display names... you could infer some stuff about my tastes with it.
 
@FallenAngelEyes Well, given the people I was playing with, I was stuck with Zoey or Louis.
And let's be honest -- nobody likes Louis.
 
9:44 PM
@RavenDreamer Everyone loves geeks
 
@RavenDreamer I do. I always play as Louis.
 
It's like, n keys make a bill's, m bill's make a bud, etc.
but that's only if you want to pay big $$$ for specific unusuals
 
@FallenAngelEyes (that pic, FYI)
 
@badp complex stuff
 
@JuanManuel indeed, key is the highest I'm interested in
 
9:45 PM
@RavenDreamer you don't love geeks? :(
 
@badp what would you trade for one (other than money)
 
user30
5.5 key -> bills (~$10)
2 bills -> buds (~$22)
4.5 buds -> max head (~$90)
4 max -> houwar (~$360)
 
@FallenAngelEyes I'm not sure other people love us.
@FallenAngelEyes I've seen very little reciprocation seen in my life.
 
@JuanManuel I said the typical 'price' is 2 refined and 1 reclaimed
 
I mean, I love geeks...
 
user30
9:46 PM
unusuals start at about $30 and go all the way up to 4 figures
 
@RavenDreamer Obviously you need to hang out with more geek lovers
 
That said I do have a key I just traded
 
@FallenAngelEyes Which goes back to my, "Heaven help us, if ever our paths should cross" mentality. :P
 
I wonder what I should open with it
 
@RavenDreamer You're talking about not liking geeks within the scope of people who are playing an online multiplayer zombie survival game?
 
user30
9:47 PM
 
user30
please tell me this is a joke
 
It's probably not a joke
 
@ThomasMcDonald Can I get a screenshot of the current layout?
 
@GraceNote Your scope is wrong.
 
@badp are newer crates series better or just different?
 
user30
9:48 PM
@badp Good question
 
@JuanManuel Strange weapons make them better.
 
@JuanManuel They contain strange weapons; in my eyes they're better
 
@RavenDreamer But what other scope applies to those where the choice of Louis is relevant?
 
other crates focus on hats and paint and (then) new weapons
 
@GraceNote I haven't been talking about Louis... :?
 
9:49 PM
see if you want one of my crates before deciding
 
Also, am I the only one that thinks the Spy has the best hats/misc items?
 
@ThomasMcDonald I hope you didn't stop that truck!
 
@RavenDreamer I'm not gonna jump you in an airport or something, I am somewhat civilized!
 
They were kind enough to say please
 
user30
I like this iteration of Facebook
 
9:49 PM
@RavenDreamer I was under the impression that's how this train got started
 
user30
@badp check steams
 
@FallenAngelEyes I notice a conspicuous absence of "I'm not gonna jump you" in that sentiment. :)
 
I see. Not sure what's different but...
 
Speaking of jumping you or glomping you or similar, you coming to PAX East this time?
 
user30
ticker on the left
 
9:50 PM
except perhaps the always-on notifications
 
user30
grouping of "top posts" when you come back to the site after a period of time
 
glomping, that was a term I was not familiar with until I went to my first "con"
 
glomping~
 
@GraceNote My dear Grace Note, if the subject one starts a discussion about must remain the subject ad infinitum, I'm not sure I want to live in this world anymore.
 
user30
sticky header
 
user30
9:51 PM
much much larger images in news feed
 
@GraceNote Me?
 
The thing about crates is that hardly any is 'obviously good'
 
(Incidentally, you've reminded me I have work to do tonight)
 
user30
crates aren't worth opening
 
@ThomasMcDonald *on average.
 
9:52 PM
Yes, you. Since you're actually in my timezone
 
user30
if you want specific strange weapons it's cheaper to sell a key for metal and then buy the weapon
 
The one that was for me, the engie crate, got much meh'er now that I have an engie crate I want to stick with and a strange wrench
 
@RavenDreamer It isn't but I wasn't aware that we actually left that discussion at the time.
 
@GraceNote I honestly haven't thought about it.
 
@ThomasMcDonald I don't really like trading that much
 
9:52 PM
@RavenDreamer Hahaha, well my plate is kind of full at the moment
 
You should go. It's awesome.
 
I would want to go. It's a matter of time / expense commitment.
 
You should do what Welbog and I do, and plan supra-advance
 
@GraceNote Clearly, you haven't met my professors. -_-
"Homework that's due in three days? I guess I should post it..."
 
I'm not sure if that's a self-jab or a jab at the professor at their delay in posting assignments.
 
9:55 PM
Hm, the pyro crate is now the most appealing to me, although the strange flaregun would be... challenging
 
@GraceNote The professors. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, my "electives" are more like "mandatories" this semester, which meant taking classes with professors I knew were less than adequate. (Alternatively: Don't graduate on time)
 
Ah.
I've experience with worries about graduating on time.
 
This is probably like the 4th time I've posted this.
 
I do remember that preview image.
 
@GnomeSlice This is probably the 4th time it will fade into obscurity too, then.
Purple Heavy / Gaga cross over is too scary to exist on the starred chat list!
 
9:58 PM
@RavenDreamer No, he changes colours.
 
@GnomeSlice don't feel like watching it, but I'm going to star it based on the preview image alone
 
@Wipqozn SO CATCHY.
WHAT SICK MAN SENDS DIAPER TO FIGHT?
 
@GnomeSlice Hard to say my friend, hard to say.
Oh! @GnomeSlice, did I share this with you yet?
 
Incidentally, the spy has some of the best domination laughs in that game.
 
@Wipqozn Yes. I recognize the URL now.
 
10:01 PM
@GnomeSlice well then, that just ruined my day.
Thanks a lot.
 
@RavenDreamer I like the spy's verse where he makes fun of the Heavy's weight.
 
In other news my wheat farm is now producing many times what I need
 
> You disgust me. Morbidly Obese. FAT got your tongue? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
 
@GnomeSlice I don't think you mean "verse", unless the spy makes fun of the Heavy by way of Sonnet.
 
@RavenDreamer I was referring to the video I just linked.
 
10:02 PM
@GnomeSlice Touche.
 
btw
Tree farming. Wheat farming. Sugar farming. Am I missing anything?
I don't think I want to go into mob farming.
 
"What's that Sandwich? Kill them all? Good Idea!"
 
@badp Pumpkin / Melon farming
 
@GnomeSlice Those are not fan made you know
@RavenDreamer eh, I need seeds for those, which only are in dungeons
 
@badp No, but the video is.
 
10:04 PM
@badp So... what's the problem?
 
@RavenDreamer I haven't found any yet.
 
Oh. right.
Getting Terraria / Minecraft dungeons mixed up.
 
I have played TF2 before.
 
@badp Realized as I said it what mistake I was making.
 
Oh Jesus Christ.
LOOK AT WHAT YOU MADE ME DO.
 
10:06 PM
@GnomeSlice But is only 4 minutes~!
 
@GnomeSlice I'm listening to this, your link is invalid.
 
It's actually a pretty terrible cover.
@badp I recognize this.
Was this used in Blur?
Well, a remake of it anyway.
 
I like this cover/remake.
What an awful preview image.
 
@RavenDreamer I remember that one.
@badp ...You're listening to this because it was in the DX video with the vending machines, aren't you.
 
It certainly helped
 
10:09 PM
Which then reminds me of this:
 
ಠ_ಠ
 
Blegh, another early day tomorrow, g'night all
 
@RavenDreamer My goodness.
 
@FallenAngelEyes Sweet dreams and whatnot!
 
@RavenDreamer Thanks :) zonk
 
10:12 PM
I should refrain from another "Don't be late for your exam!" farewell this time.
 
zooonk
 
HONK!
 
HONK honk HONK
 
Shhhhh! (papapapapapapap)
 
hooooooooooooooooooooonk......
Speaking of which...@GnomeSlice! Read Homestuck!
 
10:13 PM
And thus did the mods, once again, pass secret communications back and forth.
 
@RavenDreamer I was so sad when I found out EoA5 is only 35% done :(
 
I hear dinner. Later all!
 
@Mana Speaking of huh?
 
@GraceNote eyes @GraceNote curiously
Considering as you said that my doorbell rung with who I assume is the pizza delivery guy...
Curious and curiouser.
 
GO ANSWER YOUR DOOR
 
10:16 PM
RESPECT YOUR BILLY MAYS KEY!
 
@GnomeSlice You'll get what I'm referring to if you READ HOMESTUCK.
 
never reads it again
 
...:(
Remember when you started reading it? And you were like holy shit this is actually really good, I can't believe I didn't read it until now?
 
Honestly, Act I is pretty boring.
Act 5 is WTF awesome, though.
There's a gradient. And it's going upwards. Has been, for some time.
 
Yeah, Act 5 changed so much.
IT REDEFINED HOMESTUCK AS EVEN MORE AWESOME.
Although really Jack: Ascend was probably the biggest turning point.
 
10:21 PM
Holy crap
I forgot today was Wednesday.
I was in Thursday mode... :(
 
Oh man.
I'm in "I have the entire afternoon and evening off let's play TF2" mode
 
MS PAINT, Y U NO DRAW WHERE MY CURSOR IS
 
@Mana The real question is why haven't I started reading it yet? WHY?
 
@TimStone You hate awesome?
 
Hmm, I hope not
 
10:40 PM
MINECRAFT
Y U CRASH WHEN I TAKE SCREENIE OF CAKE
wh... wh...
it...
oh come on this is lame
 
@badp Were you sneaking?
 
I've lost all the ingridients
including three fucking buckets
 
/i milk
 
just when I'd found my very first cows
Again, SP, and no cheating... so far
I might be going to grant myself one block of cake though, and three buckets
I WORKED HARD FOR THAT CAKE
 
Were you sneaking when you took the screenshot?
 
10:47 PM
uh... I had the crafting interface open
and I was using F12 from Steamm
 
11:22 PM
Man, I love listening to people defend sony for the hacking incident
since the main argument used is "It's not Sony's fault they were hacked!", not realize the complaint made by (rational) people isn't that they were hacked, but they had terribly security measures.
Storing passwords and other information in plain text is generally considered a terrible idea
 
11:50 PM
Diaspora just emailed me excusing themselves for not inviting me just yet

Q: Is the 'impossible' room possible?

badpI'm playing through the Blocks That Matter demo and there's one bonus level called 'Impossible.' I have four blocks of sand I can arrange in a tetris shape and they're affected by gravity. I can jump 2.5 blocks' height and I need to reach a place that's high seven. Is this level actually impossi...
