(2005-12-09 16:51:21) akumar: maybe you can use something similar for logbot
(2005-12-09 16:51:55) elau: hmm i'll ask steve to see what can be gotten from it
(2005-12-09 16:52:00) elau: if i save from gaim, it saves as html
(2005-12-09 16:52:05) akumar: hmm... make a log parse to convert to wiki format :D

(2005-12-13 16:34:05) masa: Since I'll be away from next week until 11/01/2006, I would like to have a farewell lunch for Nick this Thu.
(2005-12-13 16:34:32) jstavrakakis: um, steve and nick are preoccupied with a visitor
(2005-12-13 16:34:39) masa: visitor???

(14:58:35) praniga [firstname.lastname@example.org/Gaim] entered the room.

(15:03:27) akumar [email@example.com/Gaim] entered the room.
(15:03:37) akumar: heya
(15:03:57) akumar: sorry about that
(15:04:09) akumar: wasn't paying attention to gaim
(15:04:41) akumar: so
(15:04:49) akumar: what -are- we doing here?
(15:05:00) elau: discussing gift
(15:05:10) elau: still waiting for john
(15:05:16) akumar: a hah
(15:08:06) akumar: i think john's outside talking to someown
(15:08:10) akumar: someone*
(15:09:23) jstavrakakis [firstname.lastname@example.org/Gaim] entered the room.
(15:09:34) jstavrakakis: hello
(15:09:39) jstavrakakis: masa was just here
(15:10:41) akumar: ahah
(15:10:48) akumar: anyway enoch
(15:10:54) akumar: the farewell lunch was today
(15:10:54) jstavrakakis: so is everyone still engaged?
(15:11:11) akumar: *raises eyebrow*
(15:11:25) jstavrakakis: what are the plans?
(15:11:31) akumar: no idea
(15:11:46) jstavrakakis: any new suggestions?
(15:13:44) jstavrakakis: it seems quite informal to just go into a chat room without having many people actually listening. Shall we hold this meeting at 4 or 5pm instead
(15:13:45) jstavrakakis: ?
(15:14:21) jstavrakakis: i vote 5pm
(15:14:28) akumar: i won't be here at 5 :P
(15:14:36) jstavrakakis: when then?
(15:14:40) akumar: but i can always read logs
(15:14:50) jstavrakakis: hmm, i suppose so
(15:15:05) jstavrakakis: when do you leave?
(15:19:01) praniga: well I think enoch initiated this and he should be the one conducting it
(15:19:08) jstavrakakis: this discussion area remains unsafe, i suggest email communication continues
(15:19:14) praniga: yeah
(15:19:34) jstavrakakis: but we can still decide on date of 'attack'
(15:20:12) elau: discussion area remains unsafe?
(15:20:27) elau: nick isn't going to see this unless he trawls through Logbot logs
(15:20:40) jstavrakakis: true
(15:20:53) jstavrakakis: i feel he will though, thats just him
(15:21:15) elau: there's always the last 20 or so lines repeated the next time someone logs in
(15:21:21) elau: we just have to make sure we chat crap at the end
(15:21:24) elau: :P
(15:21:25) jstavrakakis: good
(15:21:33) elau: ok, so what are the ideas!
(15:22:00) elau: art / pen / certificate
(15:22:04) jstavrakakis: yes
(15:22:11) akumar: mmhmm
(15:22:41) elau: the certificate can be easily arranged, but what about the other part?
(15:22:42) jstavrakakis: so are we voting for it?
(15:22:48) elau: where can we get pen with engraving?
(15:22:58) elau: we'll take it to a vote later, but just flesh out some details first
(15:23:18) jstavrakakis: im told that you can take it to a watchmaker and they do it for you there and then
(15:23:24) jstavrakakis: takes 5-10 mins
(15:23:29) jstavrakakis: need to confirm though
(15:23:46) jstavrakakis: i shall investigate tomorrow
(15:23:54) elau: hmm ok
(15:24:23) elau: how much is that likely to cost?
(15:24:53) jstavrakakis: not sure on that one, but shouldnt be more than $20
(15:24:58) jstavrakakis: hopefully...
(15:25:13) praniga: the negraving or the pen
(15:25:16) praniga: ?
(15:25:20) praniga: *engraving
(15:25:21) jstavrakakis: engraving
(15:25:21) elau: that's the pen
(15:25:26) elau: oh right
(15:25:34) jstavrakakis: the pen can be as expensive as you want
(15:25:51) jstavrakakis: a decent one is at least $20
(15:25:57) praniga: can they engrave in anything
(15:25:58) praniga: ?
(15:26:05) praniga: as in any material?
(15:26:07) elau: hmm is he likely to like a pen?
(15:26:10) jstavrakakis: they should be able to, depends on the skill
(15:26:15) akumar: hmm
(15:26:18) elau: he strikes me as someone who would type everything if he could
(15:26:25) akumar: yeah i guess he would type
(15:26:26) elau: and he uses pencil for his diagrams
(15:26:37) praniga: lol
(15:26:48) akumar: but a good pen is good for looking professional in business meetings though
(15:26:53) praniga: yeah i don;t think nick is the pen sorta person
(15:27:27) elau: that's true, it looks nice
(15:27:59) elau: or is there anything usyd-ish we could get?
(15:28:07) jstavrakakis: well, i feel the certificate is used as more of a funny thing but less appreciated as a pen.
(15:28:27) elau: yeh, we cant just give certificate :P
(15:28:49) praniga: certificate is more snetimental though
(15:28:50) jstavrakakis: still, Im yet to know about what sort of art you had in mind
(15:28:59) praniga: too late for that
(15:29:08) praniga: I don;t think we can get it here in time
(15:29:21) jstavrakakis: what is it?
(15:29:28) elau: shop.deviantart.com
(15:29:30) praniga: art
(15:29:37) elau: take a look at the 3D section
(15:29:39) akumar: shipping could takle a while
(15:29:43) elau: shipping is 6 days
(15:29:44) akumar: esp this close to christmas
(15:29:46) elau: we'll get it in time, just in time
(15:29:53) akumar: 6 working days?
(15:30:12) akumar: not if its 6 working days
(15:30:20) praniga: when is nick last day here?
(15:30:29) jstavrakakis: wednesday
(15:30:39) praniga: no way we'll be able to get it in time

(15:31:12) akumar: lunch was today
(15:31:14) akumar: *burps*
(15:31:18) jstavrakakis: it was just a farewell lunch from Masa
(15:31:19) elau: heh
(15:31:20) praniga: the farewell gathering
(15:31:21) elau: oh right
(15:31:42) jstavrakakis: Masa wont be here next week or tomorrow, so we had it today
(15:31:47) elau: oh i see
(15:31:57) elau: hmm darn that means we cant get masa to sign the certificate
(15:32:01) elau: unless we get him to email it to us :D
(15:32:13) praniga: yeah
(15:32:36) praniga: by the way thanx to all the guys at vislab for inviting us to lunch (fists waving)
(15:32:42) elau: actually they did invite us

(15:32:49) jstavrakakis: hey, i emailed members
(15:32:50) elau: mea culpa
(15:32:58) jstavrakakis: ?
(15:33:03) elau: mea culpa = my fault
(15:33:07) jstavrakakis: oh
(15:33:28) jstavrakakis: it was short notice, sorry. I had only found out that day
(15:33:39) praniga: u mean today
(15:33:46) elau: as for artwork, i thought it would be appropriate if it's the 3D stuff and he's got abstractish art in his place anyway
(15:33:46) jstavrakakis: yesterday
(15:33:57) elau: yeh it was in the last couple of lines in the chat room
(15:34:04) jstavrakakis: yes
(15:34:04) elau: haha when i saw it i went, uh oh
(15:34:20) praniga: well no one emailed me
(15:34:24) akumar: they emailed us.. well john did heh
(15:34:28) praniga: I don;t think they did anyway
(15:34:32) elau: it should have been sent via vislab account?
(15:34:42) elau: anyway dw, it's over
(15:34:56) praniga: yeah yeah
(15:35:38) elau: so art, pen, or an artistic pen?
(15:36:09) jstavrakakis: i do remember seeing him with some hobby art at his place, any ideas there?
(15:37:02) elau: what's hobby art?
(15:37:26) akumar: yeah what is it?
(15:37:45) jstavrakakis: he made some paintings of his own
(15:38:15) elau: is that the weird looking painting of a person near the tv?
(15:38:57) jstavrakakis: he showed me and matt in one of his other rooms
(15:39:04) elau: oh i see
(15:39:08) elau: what are they like?
(15:40:10) jstavrakakis: drawings of usually one person in an environment like a city, or forest. quite an imagination though
(15:41:56) praniga: lol
(15:42:17) jstavrakakis: i guess that was expected from Nick
(15:42:29) jstavrakakis: multi-talented bastard
(15:43:54) praniga: yeah
(15:44:06) akumar: heh
(15:44:28) praniga: i wanted to give a soldering iron or some hardware thing engraved with "Abt the only thing u can't do"
(15:44:47) jstavrakakis: haha
(15:46:32) jstavrakakis: anything we can give him that is graphics oriented?
(15:46:42) jstavrakakis: i was scrambling my brain about that before
(15:48:29) elau: hmmmm
(15:49:12) elau: there's a book in kinokuniya with cool CG drawings
(15:49:18) elau: it's a little pricey though
(15:49:22) elau: very nice however
(15:51:10) jstavrakakis: sounds goo

(15:59:05) jstavrakakis: what sort of genie are you!
(15:59:08) elau: well since probability of nick logging in > 0, P(Nick logging in while we discuss) -> 1 as t -> \infty
(15:59:14) elau: so let's get a move on!
(15:59:30) akumar: *moves*
(15:59:40) jstavrakakis: *nods*
(15:59:56) praniga: enoch when did u become interested in chics

(16:00:26) jstavrakakis: are you guys sitting next to eachother?
(16:00:30) praniga: yes
(16:00:33) akumar: maybe we should leave these two alone :p
(16:00:34) jstavrakakis: haha
(16:00:35) elau: he's sitting on my lap
(16:00:43) akumar: *steps back slowly*
(16:00:46) jstavrakakis: paperclip wars begin!
(16:00:51) praniga: lol
(16:01:30) elau: hmm let's type really long messages in here and see if we can get Logbot to buffer overflow
(16:01:32) elau: muahahaha
(16:01:44) praniga: u idiot there is no buffer
(16:01:52) praniga: all goes into file
(16:01:54) praniga: :p
(16:01:57) elau: dang
(16:02:16) akumar: hmm
(16:02:17) akumar: maybe
(16:02:22) akumar: we can make the file so bigf
(16:02:27) akumar: it takes up the whole disk
(16:02:30) praniga: lol
(16:02:43) praniga: do the calculations
(16:02:50) praniga: it'll prob take a while
(16:02:55) praniga: a very long while
(16:02:57) akumar: copy and paste?
(16:03:10) akumar: ohhh
(16:03:17) akumar: maybe write an applescript to do it
(16:03:24) praniga: i think the server would have atleast 50 gigs of free space
(16:03:26) akumar: so i don't even have to be there
(16:03:34) praniga: thats cheating
(16:03:38) akumar: only 50billion characters or so
(16:03:46) elau: where's Logbot located?
(16:03:51) elau: on Steve's machine?
(16:03:55) praniga: no idea
(16:03:55) akumar: no one ever said we played fair
(16:04:05) elau: perl -E "fork while fork"
(16:04:12) akumar: bwahahaha
(16:04:15) praniga: assumming u can type 5 characters per second
(16:04:15) elau: although we'll probably never step foot in vislab again if we do that
(16:04:16) elau: hahahaha
(16:04:28) jstavrakakis: maybe for Nicks gift we surrender this transcript to him, i think hell appreciate our collaborative efforts
(16:04:35) elau: that's actually a great idea
(16:04:39) akumar: good idea john :D
(16:04:47) jstavrakakis: yes, hell be reading what i type right now!
(16:04:49) elau: after all, it's the thought that counts

(16:06:04) jstavrakakis: haha
(16:06:19) elau: so he can imagine the gifts that he could've gotten ;)
(16:06:32) jstavrakakis: "the most powerful gift we can give you is our IP for the thoughts on the gift"
(16:06:37) praniga: not much consolation is it though
(16:06:42) praniga: lol
(16:06:44) akumar: hah
(16:06:54) praniga: brb
(16:07:30) elau: k
