Last night in Seminole land
Ross from CS just IMed me asking for code help.
(12:12:32 AM) kingfox: Tell them that kingfox says $gang's parent $group should be re-coded to have .leader be a list instead of an object, as it should have been when incognito______ first coded it but both of us were too lazy to re-do it. Tell them that in 8 years they should have gotten around to fixing that.
I get random IMs all the time from current CS administrators and players. Usually, it's when the server's having issues, as I'm one of the few people who can smack it around a bit. The second most common topic of these messages from out of the blue are requests for me to step in and wield an iron fist to discipline a perceived cheater or right some other sort of wrong. I direct those requests to Doughboy. The third most frequent contact is when the $taskmanager's having problems, and I just give those people ogun's cell phone number.

SIGUCCS is almost over. Session chaired for the first time today, and all three presentations that made up the session were excellent. As usual, I've met some smart people with great ideas doing cool things, and have a pile of notes. Of course, while at Pleasure Island for the gala event, the campus suffers a power outage. Leaving an event for university IT staff to deal with a university IT issue? Go figure. Tomorrow windexcowboy and I fly back to Jersey, where jedimentat will be giving us a ride back to drewuniversity.

You're replacing the water in the fish tanks with the bass tracks! You're making ramen noodles out of Skwisgaar's solo!

graye has a "FUCK SNUGGLES" macro in WoW that still cracks me up whenever he uses it.

Dude. $taskmanager's being a fuckwad again. It's all $cpu_heart. Can you log in and just recycle the matrix?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: October 10th, 2007 03:40 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Has anyone tried, I might be crazy here, troubleshooting it? Seeing which cpu is causing things to go, as Incog-neat-o would say, "tits up?"
slave2tehtink From: slave2tehtink Date: October 11th, 2007 01:39 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Dude, if we wanted to, like, troubleshoot and fix shit, we'd get jobs programming, not dick around on CS!

Taltos and I have looked at it on and off and beaten our heads on our respective desks. We fix a bug, a new one comes along and kills $cpu_heart. I really think the best bet is just recycling the entire matrix.

Or, I could win the lottery, buy CS from stymie, and then try to entice you to come back and program for a big fat paycheck and a work-from-home scheme.

I'd do CS full time, but that's a money-losing proposition for you in the long run.

So, why not code up the pulsing verb to store a list of what it's pulsing, what it's trying to pulse, what it has left to pulse... and when it crashes, you can see what it was in the middle of? Oh-oh!

Please don't be jealous. I'm not lucky. Airport->rental car place->hotel->rental car place->airport. Other than two dinners in downtown Disney, I didn't get to see much beyond the hotel.

Yeah, please don't be jealous of me here as I sit with windexcowboy in MCO as our flight's departure has been delayed by 45 minutes...

You would have to hear about how great his laptop is.

Agreed. And I do miss the game, I just realize that the game I miss isn't there any more.

I don't miss dealing with agitated psychopaths sputtering about their own perceived reality that's so far removed from truth it's downright hilarious years later. I do miss the creative outlet, the platform for innovative ideas, and the camaraderie of my fellow CSers.

Can I get an age on Snake Eyes or #21455 or whatever the hell my player slot is? Hell, I don't even remember what it's named these days.

I'd log in, but then a few dozen automated tasks would start and I'd feel like I have to clean up after them if they break.

Kid Zero? That's sadly unoriginal.

I had one character before that slot that got pruned, but I thought you were slightly older than me anyway, insofar as player.

Now, get the age of the snapple_deity and kingfox_deity accounts, if you don't mind. See how my kissing of Gregory's ass paid off!

Yeah, that's about what I expected. We hired on you and Captain_AHaB around the same time, right?

I wonder what Indigo, Vertigo, Shadow Dragon, and Elana are up to these days.

If you think my communication FO existed ONLY to communicate with me, you're sadly mistaken.

Your best bet for finding my player slot might be @host-find drew.edu, sadly.

And did you jerks steal his ME3?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: October 12th, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
At one incognito______ or I (I forget which) coded it so that when counting .max for $bin:load's creation of an item, it instead used :max, which only counted items not in $economy and $players in $vacation. I don't know if we disabled the code because it caused too much lag as :load gets called like a motherfucker, or if we optimized as .max/:max was only present on $weapons, $armor, $cyberdecks, and the like. In fact, I think there was a child of $item between it and the other parents that was object with scarcity. But I could be wrong.

I bet some jerks stole his ME3. I've come back from vacation with him before, stripped of an ME3.

Of course, to log on, I'd have to remember his password. That'd be problematic.
