Jules Lavisham visited the Guild of Messengers Pub earlier this evening.
(08/24 16:18:12) Jules Lavisham: Evening Calum.
(08/24 16:18:16) Calum Traveler: evening, Jules.
(08/24 16:18:50) Jules Lavisham: Not a bad little setup they have here, eh?
(08/24 16:18:54) Calum Traveler: indeed,
(08/24 16:18:56) Calum Traveler: its pretty great
(08/24 16:19:17) Jules Lavisham: Not that I’d say that D’ni was missing a fully stocked bar…
(08/24 16:19:17) Calum Traveler: even found some packets of powdered chocolate milk this morning under the counter somewhere.
(08/24 16:19:28) Calum Traveler: heh
(08/24 16:19:42) Calum Traveler: i think the D’ni had their own styles compared to modern surface stuff
(08/24 16:20:14) Jules Lavisham: I’m liking it! Very mediterranean
(08/24 16:20:32) Calum Traveler: it’s rather nice, yea.
(08/24 16:20:39) Calum Traveler: im just glad for the seating, tbh
(08/24 16:20:46) Calum Traveler: too many years of sitting on hard floors lol
(08/24 16:21:03) Calum Traveler: my poor foot is grateful for the relief. ^^;
(08/24 16:21:33) Jules Lavisham: Oh absolutely, painfully relatable.
(08/24 16:21:58) Jules Lavisham: I’m looking forward to getting a lot of reading done in Chiso Preniv
(08/24 16:22:11) Calum Traveler: mh. cant wait to see what gets brought in in the future
(08/24 16:22:19) Calum Traveler: there’s a lot of empty shelving space hehe
(08/24 16:23:14) Jules Lavisham: Was that a D’ni age? Or are there actually explorers giving a go at the Art?
(08/24 16:23:38) Calum Traveler: im not entirely sure for Chiso
(08/24 16:23:49) Jules Lavisham: Trying to get some notes together on this history of these ages
(08/24 16:24:07) Calum Traveler: i think it was probably written by the D’ni,
(08/24 16:24:37) Calum Traveler: definitely had its architecture reworked by explorers, though
(08/24 16:24:48) Calum Traveler: and the style decore too- those stained glass windows are beautiful
(08/24 16:25:18) Jules Lavisham: Mmm. Feels like I’m in a reading room at the Britis Library.
(08/24 16:25:38) Calum Traveler: its got a very Surface feeling vibe to it, though id chalk that up to the restoration style.
(08/24 16:26:07) Jules Lavisham: Someone definitely looked at one of the Oxford colleges and thought “Yeah, I’ll have some of that”.
(08/24 16:26:40) Calum Traveler: now that i’m thinking about it. when i was editing one of the logs someone submitted to me for the release day, I think i saw Patrick mention that Chiso was a D’ni written age, given the hole in the ceiling needing to be checked for structural repairs or something?
(08/24 16:27:13) Calum Traveler: he’d probably be able to tell you more about it than I could. but man, id love to see a book about the age itself at some point
(08/24 16:27:51) Jules Lavisham: Likewise.
(08/24 16:28:09) Jules Lavisham: I have the other age to explore as well, but I’m saving that for later in the week.
(08/24 16:28:17) Calum Traveler: Veelay? I think?
(08/24 16:28:32) Calum Traveler: my brain keeps saying thats not right even though im pretty sure thats the right spelling.
(08/24 16:29:04) Jules Lavisham: That’s it I think. Would have liked to have seen everything over the weekend
(08/24 16:29:18) Calum Traveler: it was rather crowded, thats for sure.
(08/24 16:29:29) Calum Traveler: i heard that apparently we had a Cavern wide population count of about 300 people
(08/24 16:29:40) Calum Traveler: insane. havent seen that many people in Cavern in years.
(08/24 16:30:11) Jules Lavisham: Remarkable. I was able to snag a stream from my Relto. Nearest I could get without being uncontactable from work
(08/24 16:30:42) Calum Traveler: yeah, understandable. surface life gets in the way a lot these days.
(08/24 16:31:14) Jules Lavisham: Mhm. Only reason I could talk my faculty into stumping up the cash for my trip down here was to tell them that I would work out Zoom
(08/24 16:31:59) Calum Traveler: ah, Zoom. that’s something ive not yet dared tangle with. mostly just out of not wanting to deal with yet another login/password set
(08/24 16:32:49) Jules Lavisham: Mhm. Was a good arrangement until the A-Level results nonsense happened.
(08/24 16:32:57) PostPunkGrandda: I’ve used Zoom a lot for meeting friends on SAturday evenings
(08/24 16:33:09) PostPunkGrandda: instead of meeting in the pub
(08/24 16:33:30) Calum Traveler: no matter the job, no matter the people, there’ll always be some kind of nonsense somewhere, ive found.
(08/24 16:33:39) Calum Traveler: always when you least want it, too.
(08/24 16:34:37) Jules Lavisham: Yup. I remember the appeal of this place was that nobody from the surface could reach you.
(08/24 16:34:49) Calum Traveler: and now we’ve got free wifi. hah
(08/24 16:35:14) Calum Traveler: all the matter of a few decades to make a difference
(08/24 16:35:14) Jules Lavisham: Two steps forward, one step sideways off a cliff.
(08/24 16:35:24) Calum Traveler: it seemed so marvelous that the KI could chat across ages in real time,
(08/24 16:35:29) Calum Traveler: now a days not so much,
(08/24 16:35:36) Calum Traveler: kinda feels like a glorified smartphone sometimes.
(08/24 16:36:23) Calum Traveler: though honestly with some smart-*watches* we’re probably only just a holographic projector away from having KI’s on the surface, too.
(08/24 16:36:24) Jules Lavisham: Now now. The last thing the KI needs is apps.
(08/24 16:36:48) Calum Traveler: oh, yes, for sure XD
(08/24 16:37:05) Jules Lavisham: I’m sure Laxman would have liked any excuse to retrofit some Temple Run on the things.
(08/24 16:37:25) Calum Traveler starts to laugh
(08/24 16:38:10) Calum Traveler: i can think of a few other programs I’d like to have on the KI myself. but mainly just a scroll wheel for the side lists. 😛
(08/24 16:38:34) Calum Traveler: you dont really realize how many people 200+ can be until you’re clicking an up button dozens of times in a row…
(08/24 16:38:57) Calum Traveler: makes me wonder if that was how the D’ni designed it, or a DRC concession?
(08/24 16:39:12) Jules Lavisham: Mmm. Definitely a few quality of life upgrades that it could do with.
(08/24 16:39:18) Calum Traveler: shorah, all ^^
(08/24 16:39:26) Jules Lavisham: Evenin’.
(08/24 16:40:05) Jules Lavisham: Whurr, made the mistake of having one of those spring wine thingy’s earlier.
(08/24 16:40:16) Melis: i always sit where light messed up seeing chat
(08/24 16:40:35) Calum Traveler: ^^; I try to avoid drinking alcohol.
(08/24 16:40:42) Thumbs up from Melis
(08/24 16:41:22) Calum Traveler: im told i act rather drunk when i get super tired so i shudder to think about how i’d act with the actual substance.
(08/24 16:42:09) Jules Lavisham: Sounds like me and jelly babies.
(08/24 16:42:18) Calum Traveler: heh
(08/24 16:42:38) Jules Lavisham: Something in the e-numbers. I just need two and I’m bouncing around the room like a ping-pong ball.
(08/24 16:42:42) PostPunkGrandda: Jelly babies are seriously weird
(08/24 16:43:10) PostPunkGrandda: Eating sweets shaped like little humans
(08/24 16:43:10) Jules Lavisham: Indeed. But delicious though.
(08/24 16:43:22) Dormant Heights: hello everyone
(08/24 16:43:26) Calum Traveler: shorah
(08/24 16:43:29) Jules Lavisham: I mean, we as a species have eaten weirder.
(08/24 16:43:32) PostPunkGrandda: Hi
(08/24 16:43:37) Jules Lavisham: How do.
(08/24 16:44:04) Jules Lavisham: I mean, someone at some point was the first person to witness an egg being laid and thought
(08/24 16:44:11) Jules Lavisham: “I’ll have some of that”
(08/24 16:44:36) Calum Traveler: oh, yes, a lot of food recipies are just
(08/24 16:44:37) Ehren: Oh it’s hard to know stuff without a forum, and discord is pure… discord
(08/24 16:44:44) Calum Traveler: “How did the first person to think to *do that*?”
(08/24 16:45:01) Calum Traveler: yeah, shame about the forums,
(08/24 16:45:14) Calum Traveler: it’d be a lot easier to post news and stuff on ’em,
(08/24 16:45:46) Jules Lavisham: Mmm. I’m sure there’s some centralised hubs that
(08/24 16:45:48) Ehren: Yeah, it’s just a better way to hold on to data for longer.
(08/24 16:45:49) Jules Lavisham: will spring up.
(08/24 16:46:03) Calum Traveler: i seriously miss UO.
(08/24 16:46:29) Jules Lavisham: You seem to be pretty handy with the chatlogs I’ve noticed Calum ^_^
(08/24 16:46:50) Calum Traveler: it’s an ingrained habit from days long gone.
(08/24 16:47:30) Calum Traveler: to be quite honest i just got a vibe and realized “Oh, I need to /Starlog NOW!” and, well
(08/24 16:47:45) Calum Traveler: that first log from… good grief was it really just last tuesday?
(08/24 16:47:53) Calum Traveler: well, that’s started that.
(08/24 16:48:13) Calum Traveler: getting the blog together ended up being the hard part
(08/24 16:48:15) Ehren: I never think of starting logs until too late normally lol
(08/24 16:48:31) Calum Traveler: wordpress just refused to cooperate that first day.
(08/24 16:49:25) PostPunkGrandda yawns
(08/24 16:49:37) Calum Traveler: Ehren, yeah, sometimes these things worth documenting just come up on you without realizing it.
(08/24 16:49:51) PostPunkGrandda: time I was heading out i think…
(08/24 16:49:58) Calum Traveler: aight, later, PPG
(08/24 16:50:00) PostPunkGrandda: See you round
(08/24 16:50:01) Calum Traveler waves goodbye
(08/24 16:50:09) PostPunkGrandda waves goodbye
(08/24 16:50:17) Jules Lavisham: Yeah, I need to get my head down too. Still adjusting to Cavern time.
(08/24 16:50:19) Dormant Heights: bye postpunkgrandad
(08/24 16:50:41) Jules Lavisham: Nice chatting, Calum. Be seeing you around I’m sure.
(08/24 16:50:45) Calum Traveler: yeah,
(08/24 16:50:45) PostPunkGrandda (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(08/24 16:50:47) Dormant Heights: wow, this club is amazing
(08/24 16:50:56) Calum Traveler: you got my KI# if you need to message me XD
(08/24 16:51:04) Calum Traveler: hopefully it’ll be back to working properly the next few days
(08/24 16:51:16) Calum Traveler lightly taps the KI again…
(08/24 16:51:28) Calum Traveler: have a good night
(08/24 16:51:29) Calum Traveler waves goodbye
(08/24 16:51:35) Jules Lavisham: You too!
(08/24 16:51:36) Dormant Heights: bye bye
(08/24 16:51:39) Jules Lavisham waves goodbye
(08/24 16:52:01) Ehren: I do like the use of firemarbles here
(08/24 16:52:08) Calum Traveler: oh, yeah, the firemarbles are great
(08/24 16:52:30) Calum Traveler: …ah and speaking of KI’s working as intended, hold on a sec, gotta deal with something surface ways…
(08/24 16:54:27) …Chat.log stopped.
