10:00 PM
I play the №32. And I would say Bach sounds best on №549.
See. See how much clearer that is.
 
Quite.
 
Nobody would write a wiki article saying "A №32 is a type of other №549, such as №432 or a №13666."
That would make, like, no sense.
Not even an idiot would do it.
The world would be a better place.
 
It's as clear as a TON 618.
 
It's literally a TON more clearer.
 
This is an ordered list of the most massive black holes so far discovered (and probable candidates), measured in units of solar masses (M☉), or the mass of the Sun (approx. 2×1030 kilograms). == Introduction == A supermassive black hole (SMBH) is the largest type of black hole, on the order of hundreds of thousands to billions of solar masses (M☉), and is theorized to exist in the center of almost all massive galaxies. Unambiguous dynamical evidence for SMBHs exists only in a handful of galaxies; these include the Milky Way, the Local Group galaxies M31 and M32, and a few galaxies beyond the Local...
 
10:03 PM
I know what a quasar is, Cerberus.
I've studied the skies.
TON 618 is a quasar.
In your constellation I believe.
So anyway, you're making a good point right there. We even number the celestial bodies.
Even though there's no limit to those.
And we number Bach's works. Even though those have names already.
So why not number instruments.
 
I didn't know you had surveyed the skies.
In my constellation; really?
 
My mobile phone has ×8 zoom, silly.
 
BWV.
 
It's something to do with dogs, yes.
 
That's huge.
 
10:05 PM
There's no constellation Cerberus.
 
TON 618 is a very distant and extremely luminous quasar—technically, a hyperluminous, broad-absorption line, radio-loud quasar—located near the North Galactic Pole in the constellation Canes Venatici. It contains one of the most massive known black holes, weighing 66 billion times the mass of the Sun. == Observational history == Because quasars were not recognized until 1963, the nature of this object was unknown when it was first noted in a 1957 survey of faint blue stars (mainly white dwarfs) that lie away from the plane of the Milky Way. On photographic plates taken with the 0.7m Schmi...
See. Canes Medici.
Or whatevah.
 
There used to be.
 
By the way, I always find it confusing how there are two different systems to number the works of...Back? Mozart?
 
@Cerberus Köchelverzeichnis for Mozart and Bachwerkeverzeichnis for Bach.
 
I believe we have opus numbers and BWV for Bach.
Right, KV for Mozart.
@RegDwigнt That's nice.
@Mitch What did you do with me?
 
10:07 PM
Some other composers have two numberings because they tried to invent their own before they died. Vain pricks.
But yeah those composers were not Bach or Mozart so literally nobody cares.
 
@Cerberus It's not my fault. I'm just the messenger.
 
Titles like these are what annoys me.
@Mitch Hitler said that.
 
You have more coordinates to work with
 
Not that I'm aequating you to Hitler.
 
@Cerberus those two numbers are both KVs I believe.
 
10:08 PM
More like Mengele.
 
@Cerberus I get that a lot.
 
The thing with the Köchelverzeichnis is that there's like three different versions of it out there.
 
Poor you.
Who wouldn't want to be the Führer?
 
The smallest has like 300 works and the largest like 1200.
 
I'd rather be compared to Mongols.
In fact I have. favorably.
 
10:09 PM
@RegDwigнt Then that's what I meant, in addition to the opus numbers.
 
True story.
 
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 1 in D major, K. (412+514)/386b was written in 1791. The work is in two movements. Unusually, each movement received a distinct number in the first edition of the Köchel catalogue: The first movement of this concerto was featured in film The Truman Show (1998). Allegro 4/4 (K. 412) Rondo (Allegro) 6/8 (K. 514)This is one of two horn concertos of Mozart to include bassoons (the other is K. 447), but in this one he "treats them indifferently in the first movement." It is the only one of Mozart's horn concertos to be in D major (the rest are in E-flat major...
See. This one has three KVs.
412, 514, and 386b.
 
@Mitch Even with respect to number of people killed?
 
part of the story ws that it was my mother-in-law who did it.
 
@RegDwigнt See?
 
10:09 PM
@Cerberus I think the comparison was more metaphorical.
 
Oh.
Too bad.
 
at least that's how I took it.
 
Well no. Nobody cares. Mozart only wrote one Horn Concerto №1.
 
@RegDwigнt Incidentally, have you played Faster Than Light yet?
 
So for all I care you call call it Susan.
A horn concerto №1 by any other name...
 
10:10 PM
Susan it is.
Have you played Susan yet?
 
Do you ever play games, Mitch?
 
@Cerberus I am still on that exact same machine that wouldn't run it five years ago, so I would not expect this same machine to magically play it now.
 
Oh, you tried.
 
You were there.
You walked me through it.
 
@Cerberus Last year on vacation.
 
10:11 PM
I really did?
 
In this very room.
 
How nice of me.
 
Monopoly. Risk. Uno.
 
@Cerberus no you were infuriated and refused to believe me that a PC would exist that wouldn't play it.
 
I could open a virtual machine for you to install and play it on...
 
10:12 PM
Monopoly brings out the worst in people.
Risk also brings out the worst in people.
 
But there would probably be lag.
 
@Cerberus this machine will not run a virtual machine. This machine barely runs the machine itself.
 
No, on my computer.
 
Nuns go to hell for the things they say and do during Monopoly and Risk.
 
You could log in using Team Viewer.
 
10:12 PM
That's a nice chat-up line.
 
Thanks.
 
I will write it down.
 
Used it on Mahnax once.
 
Uno brings out the worst in eight year olds.
 
He was able to play the game, but the lag was insufferable.
It was fun, though.
I don't remember which game.
 
10:13 PM
See. That explains what killed Mahnax.
Fucking Cerberus kills all the people all the time.
 
That or university.
Are you calling me Hitler?
 
No, you killed Hitler.
 
It's like religion. After a bit you realize it is totally chance how well anybody does. And then your little brother shouts uno and you have to draw a bunch, that little bastard.
 
@Mitch Never computer games?
 
@RegDwigнt THat stings
@Cerberus Oh. Was that the direction of the question?
 
10:15 PM
@Mitch no, this is Sting's:
 
@Mitch Yeah, it was impossible to guess, huh?
 
@RegDwigнt That stinks.
@Cerberus Yeah. Clever game.
 
but not really. I played arcade games as a kid. and solitaire when windows came out... ooh and a computer version of Risk. Wow. That's kind of a coincidence.
It was fun because there was a choice of opponent, it could be the computer.
 
I remember playing Risk on the computer; I think I still have it somewhere. It was fun.
How about Catan or Carcassonne online?
 
10:17 PM
so I made all the players (three of them) be the computer.
so I won.
@Cerberus Oh. Yeah. With kids you have to play games. and we did Settlers of Catan. I personally found it frustrating.
 
@Mitch Uno doesn't bring out the worst in eight-year olds. It brings out the worst in 48-year olds. Remember Uno on Xbox? Where every single player cam showed someone's dick?
It was notorious.
 
I don't remember that.
 
@Mitch You can also play it online against the computer.
 
@Mitch you are one happy panda.
4
 
But then for someone like Hitler, you'd expect that
 
10:19 PM
Hitler never played online against a computer.
That's what made him literally Hitler.
 
Reminded me of this.
 
Of course it would. That is the gayest thing ever.
 
@RegDwigнt Pandas get all they deserve.
 
> Fuckke and Suckke are nostalgic
O, right, you had to send notes like that to women...
when smartphones didn't exist yet.
 
And I mean that to sting.
 
10:21 PM
Jul 19 at 22:32, by RegDwigнt
I can read Dutch.
 
That was for Mitch.
 
But no I never really got into computer o video games.
 
Mitch can't read English.
 
@Cerberus Thank you. It helped.
Sort of.
 
De nada.
 
10:22 PM
See. He can't type in English, either.
 
@RegDwigнt I don't know what you're talking about.
 
Fokke and Sukke are birds with supposedly Frisian names but which sound like fuck and suck.
 
@Mitch seven previous tomorrow.
 
They have been on the back page of my newspaper since forever.
 
@Cerberus Haha. That's so Frisian.
 
10:23 PM
@Cerberus yeah it's like all those Naughty America videos where the fraternities are called Cox and Sux.
Very original.
 
@Mitch Indeed.
 
With an omega in lieu of the O of course.
 
At least Fokke is a real Frisian name.
 
I could post a screenshot but you wouldn't want to look at that.
 
@RegDwigнt That I do not know.
 
10:24 PM
@RegDwigнt I think it's just the natural common ebullience of youth.
 
@Cerberus Fokke-Wulf made some killer planes.
Die Focke-Wulf Fw 190, genannt „Würger“, war ein deutsches Jagdflugzeug des Zweiten Weltkriegs. Die bei Focke-Wulf in Bremen unter der Leitung von Chefkonstrukteur Kurt Tank entwickelte Maschine wurde ab 1941 von der Luftwaffe als zweiter Standardjäger neben der Messerschmitt Bf 109 verwendet. Bis zum Kriegsende wurden rund 19.500 Fw 190 in verschiedenen Versionen produziert. Neben der Verwendung als Jagdflugzeug wurde der Typ als Aufklärer, Jagdbomber, Nachtjäger und Erdkampfflugzeug eingesetzt. Die meisten Fw 190 wurden von einem luftgekühlten 14-Zylinder-Doppelsternmotor vom Typ BMW 801 angetrieben…
 
You're not confused by Fokker?
Ah.
Fokker was a Dutch aircraft manufacturer named after its founder, Anthony Fokker. The company operated under several different names, starting out in 1912 in Schwerin, Germany, moving to the Netherlands in 1919. During its most successful period in the 1920s and 1930s, it dominated the civil aviation market. Fokker went into bankruptcy in 1996, and its operations were sold to competitors. == History == === Fokker in Germany === At age 20, while studying in Germany, Anthony Fokker built his initial aircraft, the Spin (Spider)—the first Dutch-built plane to fly in his home country. Taking advantage...
 
My father builds aircraft. He would dispossess me if I got Fokker and Focke confused.
Tsk tsk tsk.
 
Good.
My father is crazy about WWII.
He probably has a model of that aeroplane of yours.
 
Half of Russia has a model of that aeroplane of not mine.
I'm really liking how nonchalantly that Wiki article says that Fokke-Wulf's chief engineer was called Tank.
That's one hell of a name.
 
10:29 PM
Nice.
 
Kind of like that Nazi lady that was sentenced in Germany recently, what were here lawyers called again? Stahl, Heer and Sturm or something?
You can't make that shit up.
 
Really.
 
Really. All a complete accident, mind.
 
I didn't see that.
 
She acquired like three different ones at three different points in time from three different places. And all three of them were not Becker or Müller or Wagner.
But Sturm, Stahl, and Heer.
There you go.
Memory still works.
 
10:32 PM
Perhaps she picked them.
 
No. She actually tried to get rid of them at different points for different reasons.
One is a lady I believe.
Not sure which one of the three.
The trial went on for what, five years? Seven?
 
Hmm.
Was she the one that killed several foreigners in different attacks?
 
Well by the looks of it she only sat at home. The other two guys did all the work.
The ones that got killed in that van.
 
Hmm.
 
She then blew up their house trying to get rid of the evidence of all their plans past and future.
Now anyway. Enough about Hitler. Let's talk violas again.
I'm sure you can read up everything about Zschäpe on wiki.
The same is not true for music.
 
10:36 PM
She killed them?
 
She did fuck all.
 
Hmm.
She organised the group?
 
Which is basically all she was ever tried on. Failure to render assistance basically. Or rather, rendering assistance to all the wrong guys for all the wrong reasons.
@Cerberus Look. If you're really interested, read the wiki. I don't care about this fucking bitch. I should not remember her name. She should be remembering mine.
 
Her name sounds odd.
 
Inorite.
Not very aryan.
Anyway. This room's really crowded with lurkers right now. And I don't want people to think that we're Brits or something. Forever obsessed with Nazis.
So let's discuss casu marzu or whatever.
 
10:40 PM
Or a new computer for you.
 
Yeah lurkers, go look up that one.
@Cerberus I was actually thinking about finally getting a new one just the other day.
 
<lurkers frantically browsing dictionaries>
@RegDwigнt Good.
 
I really need to start running some sort of DAW at this point.
 
Build it yourself?
 
Fuck that. No.
I am a console guy.
 
10:41 PM
It's easy!
 
No it is not. Also I already said fuck that.
 
And you'll get a much better machine for your money.
It is. Even I can do it...
 
I have 400000 LEGO parts. If I want to build something, I know what to do. I do not need a PC for that.
@Cerberus good. Then go and do it. But I will not.
I just need something to run a DAW. Or MuseScore 3, for that matter. Because 32-bit is basically dead at this point.
So I was even actually thinking of looking into Macs.
But then I sobered up and all was fine again.
 
See, you could build that.
 
As a rule, I never build or do anything someone else has already built or done.
 
10:44 PM
@RegDwigнt If you want to spend double triple the money and be unable to use many highly useful programmes, why not.
 
Life is short. I'm a composer not a copyist.
 
You could create your own Lego case!
 
@Cerberus yeah I did mention I was drunk.
 
Good.
I used my friend's Chromebook today.
 
@Cerberus yes, I could create my own LEGO case, but that's one reason less for me to create what's inside.
 
10:45 PM
It doesn't even have page up and page down.
Nor even a right mouse button!
 
I'm more worried about USB and microphone jacks at this point.
 
You have to tap with two fingers for the right mouse button.
Hmm what about those?
 
You need those. And Apple doesn't know that you do.
 
You could also order the parts from Mind Factory or similar and have them build it for you. Many web shops will do that for a price.
 
So anyway. I was actually wondering, is the next Windows coming out any time soon?
 
10:47 PM
No.
 
Cause it'd be really a bummer to buy a Win 10 machine only to have them put out Win 11 a month later.
 
So far as we know, it's going to be Windows 10 forever with updates.
 
Suits me fine.
 
@RegDwigнt There was no 9, so why an 11.
 
I wouldn't know.
I stopped caring after XP.
 
10:48 PM
So did I.
Then I switched to 10.
 
But will it run Doom?
 
Which @Jasper probably still can't believe.
Sure it will run Doom.
Which Doom?
 
There's only one Doom.
Just because the gaming industry standard these days is to always forget to put a number on the end, doesn't mean that there's more than one Doom or more than one Prey or more than one Tomb Raider.
 
Star Trek is a 2009 American science fiction film directed by J. J. Abrams and written by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. It is the eleventh film in the Star Trek film franchise, and is also a reboot that features the main characters of the original Star Trek television series portrayed by a new cast, as the first in the rebooted film series. The film follows James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) aboard the USS Enterprise as they combat Nero (Eric Bana), a Romulan from their future who threatens the United Federation of Planets. The story takes place in an alternate reality because...
 
The other week I actually saw Doom run on a pocket calculator. That was impressive.
 
10:51 PM
Nice but useless.
 
Like, I've seen it run on ATMs and GameBoys or whatever.
 
Besides, who ever liked Doom.
 
I don't know. Was always Wolfenstein for me.
 
What game should I be playing?
 
NieR:Automata.
 
10:52 PM
I have all the games on Steam and it's vacation time.
Hmm I have heard of that.
 
Buy a PS4 and play NieR:Automata.
That is literally what I did.
 
But why.
 
I spent several hundred bucks just to play the one game.
I wish I had spent more.
 
I don't even like reflex games very much.
@RegDwigнt I can help you there.
How much more would you like to spend?
 
@Cerberus no you can't. Keiichi Okabe might.
 
10:53 PM
I'll help you spend the moneys.
 
A hooker will help me spend the moneys.
Doesn't mean that I'm interested.
 
We have hookers here.
 
You do not say.
 
I spoke to this bloke on Grinder who oversees the new city brothel, turns out it's right behind my house.
 
I could've told you eight years ago.
 
10:55 PM
Literally 15 metres from where I'm sitting now.
It didn't exist then.
 
I could've seen it coming eight years ago.
Everyone in here could.
 
It has indeed been planned for a very long time.
 
I know. We were all in on it.
 
The last time we has government brothels was probably in the 17th century or so.
 
I don't see the point. I do not understand who visits those facilities.
 
10:57 PM
The point is to ensure that the girls aren't exploited or forced.
By pimps.
Because the city plays the pimp.
It would be nice if all publicly visible brothels and hooker windows were to be run by the government.
In order to prevent exploitation.
 
I am not talking about that.
I am talking about paying for sex as such.
