CecilSunkure -- :P
[2014-8-15. : 2:29 am]
jjf28 -- player 8's owner or race is not valid, the start location is too close to the edge of the map or off the map, player 8 doesn't actually have a start location, player 8 is actually showing up
[2014-8-15. : 2:27 am]
CecilSunkure -- Looks like it was a weird bug in SCMDraft... Restarting it fixed the problem.
[2014-8-15. : 2:22 am]
CecilSunkure -- Player 8 won't show up in this map. It has a start location. Any idea why?
[2014-8-15. : 1:12 am]
jjf28 -- most parts of the metric system were built on top of existing systems for writing numbers and with magnitudes that have regular use; wouldn't consider that random or baseless
[2014-8-15. : 1:06 am]
jjf28 -- define arbitrary
[2014-8-15. : 12:54 am]
MasterJohnny -- hello
[2014-8-15. : 12:16 am]
CecilSunkure -- Hi MasterJohnny!
[2014-8-15. : 12:09 am]
Dem0n -- math sux
[2014-8-15. : 12:05 am]
MasterJohnny -- arbitrary*
[2014-8-15. : 12:04 am]
MasterJohnny -- it gives the sense that such systems are not arbituary
[2014-8-15. : 12:04 am]
Devourer -- :C
[2014-8-15. : 12:04 am]
MasterJohnny -- I, as a math major, hate the metric system
[2014-8-14. : 9:05 pm]
jjf28 -- #tricky
[2014-8-14. : 9:05 pm]
jjf28 -- finally got a MDI Child window's proc inside a class
[2014-8-14. : 9:04 pm]
jjf28 -- woot

Roy -- That's not exact enough because it doesn't count leap seconds.
[2014-8-14. : 6:57 pm]
Devourer -- Why don't we just be more exact and always use the unix time stamp whenever something was written or for deadlines and what not
[2014-8-14. : 6:54 pm]
Roy -- Everyone knows ISO 8601 is the only true way to format a date.
[2014-8-14. : 6:29 pm]
Sacrieur -- Yes sir, now how many furlongs of fabric would you like?
[2014-8-14. : 6:28 pm]
Dem0n -- Savages.
[2014-8-14. : 6:27 pm]
Azrael -- -_-
[2014-8-14. : 6:27 pm]
Azrael -- Sometimes they pull out a conversion chart and a calculator.
[2014-8-14. : 6:27 pm]
Azrael -- At a grocery store near me, they have their prices in pounds but their scales are in kilograms, so they can't even tell you how much your shit will cost until you take it to the register.
[2014-8-14. : 6:26 pm]
Azrael -- Canada has kind of adopted them, except when it comes to weights: In the store, the packages are in grams, but meats/fish/etc are often marked in pounds.
[2014-8-14. : 6:25 pm]
Azrael -- Celcius and meters are a lot more sensible than Fahrenheit and yards.
[2014-8-14. : 6:24 pm]
Dem0n -- We're just a bunch of savages.
[2014-8-14. : 6:22 pm]
Azrael -- Regardless: Yes, many people know that the metric system is superior and wish that it was used here.
[2014-8-14. : 6:21 pm]
Azrael -- Latitude and longitude work the same way, as well as most other things.
[2014-8-14. : 6:19 pm]
Azrael -- "I'm going to a concert on September 8th," or "I'll be back before 8:30": These statements aren't ambiguous in the context of most given situations.
[2014-8-14. : 6:15 pm]
Azrael -- In either case, the last element (the scope reference) can be dropped, and it's naturally assumed you mean the previous/next instance of that time/date.
[2014-8-14. : 6:13 pm]
Azrael -- August = Month, 14th = Day, 2014 = 12 month timespan for reference.
[2014-8-14. : 6:12 pm]
Azrael -- Following that format, it'd be "August 14th, 2014".
[2014-8-14. : 6:11 pm]
Azrael -- Medium -> Smallest -> Largest.
[2014-8-14. : 6:11 pm]
Azrael -- 6:30 PM: 6 = Hour, 30 = Minute, PM = 12 hour timespan for reference.
[2014-8-14. : 6:10 pm]
Azrael -- True, you wouldn't say "30 minutes 6 hours", because smallest -> largest is weird.
[2014-8-14. : 6:09 pm]
Azrael -- "Devourer -- I am probably nitpicking there but it probably would drive me mad if people around me would use that order. Like, 6:30 pm you wouldn't say "Oh yeah it is 30 minutes 6 o'clock" or whatever"
[2014-8-14. : 6:00 pm]
CecilSunkure -- wow I already had him on skype
[2014-8-14. : 4:27 pm]
CecilSunkure -- Well what's his skype???
[2014-8-14. : 11:46 am]
lil-Inferno -- "CecilSunkure -- Anyone know how to get a hold of samsizzle?" I have him on Skype.

[2014-8-14. : 3:37 am]
Fire_Kame -- THE FUCK ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY JJF
[2014-8-14. : 3:36 am]
CecilSunkure -- Anyone know how to get a hold of samsizzle?
[2014-8-14. : 3:09 am]
jjf28 -- curious how it was busy then completely silent
[2014-8-14. : 2:42 am]
Fire_Kame -- slow news day
[2014-8-13. : 6:58 pm]
Fire_Kame -- :kame:
[2014-8-13. : 6:57 pm]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- I was just saying English was it's own thing, probably not too dissimilar from German, and then the French came and French got mixed in a bunch ;o
[2014-8-13. : 6:56 pm]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- If it does need one it would be after 'was'
[2014-8-13. : 6:54 pm]
Alzarath -- Or after 'was'.
[2014-8-13. : 6:53 pm]
Alzarath -- Ah, with that context the sentence is a bit more clear. Maybe a comma after 'out'? I dunno, English sucks.
[2014-8-13. : 6:51 pm]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- Adding the comma completely changes the meaning. :P
[2014-8-13. : 6:51 pm]
jjf28 -- I also blame the french for not completing metric time/dates, and for not creating expiration periods on standard measures
[2014-8-13. : 6:50 pm]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- I was using it like "There we were" or "There I was". You don't say "There, I was standing at the super market."
[2014-8-13. : 6:48 pm]
O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- "NudeRaider -- Wouldn't it be "There the English were hanging out..."?" no, I was referring to the language.
[2014-8-13. : 6:46 pm]
jjf28 -- >=)
[2014-8-13. : 6:45 pm]
Devourer -- > : (
[2014-8-13. : 6:38 pm]
jjf28 -- "you can not just blame Frennch for everything, farty!" you're not allowed to think like that, you're German!
[2014-8-13. : 6:30 pm]
Devourer -- Isn't that the same as "The 5% is [...]" which is correct, but most say "The 5% are [...]" which is wrong
[2014-8-13. : 6:30 pm]
Alzarath -- I still feel like a comma would be necessary in that case. I haven't done much research into when commas are absolutely required, though.
[2014-8-13. : 6:28 pm]
NudeRaider -- Wouldn't it be "There the English were hanging out..."?
[2014-8-13. : 6:26 pm]
Alzarath -- I don't usually point out stuff like that, I was just confused which one you intended.
[2014-8-13. : 6:25 pm]
Alzarath -- Comma would've been useful after 'There' to back that up, then.
