[17:16] <Steven_Zhang> and no can do
[17:16] #wikipedia-en url is http://en.wikipedia.org/
[17:16] <Qcoder00> TheCavalry:  As I said, don't go driving strange kit cars down abandoned runways... ;)
[17:16] <Steven_Zhang> need to get to 50% mainspace :P
�03[17:16] * Zalgo is now known as derp
[17:16] <Qcoder00> Unless you want to wake in a stangre Itallinate village, where the people are very strange indeed ;)
[17:16] <Demiurge1000> Steven_Zhang: Uh, what?
�08[17:16] * derp hugs Steven_Zhang
[17:16] <Demiurge1000> Steven_Zhang: Oh, you're weird. Lol.
[17:16] <njsg> Qcoder00: what could happen, the car could be a new KITT model that feeds on people?
[17:16] <Steven_Zhang> ive been challenged
�08[17:16] * derp gives Steven_Zhang a LADA
[17:17] <Demiurge1000> Steven_Zhang: Fair enough. I need to reduce my Talk: % so, works for me :D
[17:17] <Qcoder00> njsg:  You haven't seen a British TV Ckassic , that my comment alludes to?
[17:17] <Qcoder00> *TV Classic
[17:17] <geniice> Vote for me! I will place edit restrictions on those found to be extremely annoying that only allows them to edit [[Liancourt Rocks]]
[17:17] <njsg> Qcoder00: I don't recall that exact expression, no
[17:17] <njsg> Qcoder00: but if it is british comedy, someday I will
[17:17] <njsg> there's nothing as great as british comedy
�03[17:17] * Ceradon (~Unbelieva@wikipedia/Ceradon) has joined #wikipedia-en
[17:18] <Qcoder00> njsg: It's not British Comedy... Be Seeing you ;)
[17:18] <njsg> except, perhaps, Allo Allo sausages
[17:18] <Qcoder00> TheCavalry knows what I am reffering to ;)
[17:18] <TheCavalry> :D
�08[17:19] * derp hugs Qcoder00
�08[17:19] <derp> Hey TheCavalry, thanks for earlier :)
[17:19] <TheCavalry> geniice: I will be voting for you :)
�08[17:19] <derp> you cannot beat Keeping Up Appearances.
[17:19] <TheCavalry> derp: NP. It was a proxy, and almost certainly TOR at some point... but I couldn't be too sure. Still, very little collateral damage, so...
[17:20] <Qcoder00> TheCavalry:  That said some people have argues that  working Arbcom can be a bit like an Episode of the series I mention sometimes ;) XD
[17:20] <TheCavalry> top tip: set up an autoreply in your email client that just replies to everything with "+1, or we could just topic ban"
[17:21] <TheCavalry> the havoc you'll create will be incredible
�08[17:21] <derp> TheCavalry, my tools indicated that it was a relay :)
[17:21] <Qcoder00> TheCavalry:  "Where am I?  The Comittee... Who are you.. The Comittee,  What do you want? Information Information...   Who is number One? etc..."
[17:21] <TheCavalry> :D:D:D
[17:22] <Qcoder00> Actually someone probably has done a  Wikipedia skit on that show , if not someone should ;)
�03[17:22] * Earwig|away is now known as Earwig

[17:26] <Steven_Zhang> aw ffs
[17:27] <Qcoder00> TheCavalry:  I made you happy?
[17:27] <TheCavalry> Qcoder00: Yes :)
[17:27] <Qcoder00> With my  funny stuff?
[17:27] <Steven_Zhang> i am sad
[17:27] <Qcoder00> Steven_Zhang:  Why?
[17:28] <Steven_Zhang> cos im going to be spending my day copying and pasting 1800 values from an excel spreadsheet into AWBs find and replace
[17:28] <Steven_Zhang> cos i dont know how to do it any other way
[17:28] <Steven_Zhang> -_-
[17:28] <MuZemike> Looking good for Wisconsin so far
[17:29] <harej> Scon-tastic!
[17:29] <harej> For a place with such a cold climate, your teams sure are hot hot hot!
[17:30] <harej> Beat those pedophiles!
[17:31] <MuZemike> Hello yeah! It's now
[17:32] <MuZemike> 35-7 Wisconsin
�03[17:33] * Kangaroopower (46e7fcf7@wikia/Kangaroopower) has joined #wikipedia-en
[17:34] <Ironholds> Steven_Zhang: are you a fucking idiot?
[17:34] <Ironholds> output the values into a UTF-8 text file! you can take AWB lists from UTF files!
[17:34] <Gfoley4> I certainly hope not.
[17:34] <Ironholds> oy veh
[17:34] <Steven_Zhang> Not for a find and replace
[17:35] <MuZemike> Notepad++ is your friend
[17:36] <Qcoder00> Evening Ironholds
[17:36] <Qcoder00> Had a long row with someone on another channel earlier...
[17:36] <Ironholds> this does not suprise me
[17:36] <Ironholds> Steven_Zhang: for a find and replace? use Notepad++, as MuZemike
[17:36] <Ironholds> *says
[17:37] <Qcoder00> .. Apprently they felt  'castrating  rapists' was going too far, when it came up in disscussion
[17:37] <Ironholds> no shit
[17:37] <Qcoder00> a point I disagreed with
�03[17:37] * Kangaroopower (46e7fcf7@wikia/Kangaroopower) has left #wikipedia-en
[17:37] <MuZemike> What about Jerry Sandusky?
[17:38] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: why?
[17:38] <Ironholds> Steven_Zhang: why do you need 1,800 different find and replace lines?
[17:38] <Qcoder00> Ironholds: The reason I disagreed was that there are some forms of 'chemical castration' that are already used in Europe and parts of the US
[17:39] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: yes; the fact that places USE it does not make it *good*
[17:39] <Ironholds> there are also some forms of "the death penalty" that are already in use in parts of the US
[17:39] <Ironholds> ditto with stoning gays, brewing meth and sleeping with your sister
[17:40] <Ironholds> (not all at once; the meth labs tend to explode if you try to multitask)
[17:40] <Qcoder00> Also by removing one possible underlying cause for the 'sexually' motivated  crimes,  you can hopefully rehab the rapists instead of having to spend a fortune keeping them in jail..
[17:41] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: yes; rehab for people who have violated the bodies of others should consist of violating THEIR bodies to show how much superior the system of justice is, and should be motivated primarily by cost
[17:41] <Ironholds> I look forward to your appearance on the 1922 Committee
[17:41] <njsg> Ironholds: places which have so high occurence rates that make it sound more needed usually are the ones that can't fix it just with outlawing or punishment
[17:41] <njsg> sometimes people are the problem.
�03[17:41] * HyacinthBouquet is now known as ________________
�03[17:41] * ________________ is now known as derp
[17:41] <Qcoder00> Ironholds: I had one female activst claim she'd like to see rapists ritually buggered...
[17:41] <geniice> last I checked we owned the isle of wight and weren't doing anything else worthwhile with it
[17:42] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: she is clearly an idiot
[17:42] <Peter-C> Ironholds - do you know anything about video cards?
[17:42] <harej> BUT DO YOU OWN ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, VIRGINIA!?!?!? No!
[17:42] <Ironholds> njsg: well, yes. If you're trying to treat "one in three of our human beings are rapists" with "punish them", you are confusing the symptom for the disease.
�15[17:42] * LauraHale (~LauraHale@wikipedia/LauraHale) Quit (Read error: No route to host�)
[17:42] <Ironholds> Peter-C: not in the slightest. I build rigs, I don't know what goes on inside them
[17:42] <njsg> not even eye by eye works (if there remains someone who can see it working) if people keep thinking it's "okay"
�08[17:42] * derp hugs harej
�15[17:42] * tegra (~tegra@gateway/tor-sasl/tegra) Quit
[17:42] <Panyd> Who wants people rapped?
[17:42] <Ironholds> I hear it involves magic smoke
�08[17:42] * derp hugs Peter-C
[17:42] <Panyd> raped*
[17:42] <Panyd> what?
[17:42] <Ironholds> Panyd: "female activists", apparently, want rapists buggered
�08[17:42] * derp raps Panyd.
[17:43] <Peter-C> Wait... is Panyd offering rapings?
[17:43] <Panyd> No!
[17:43] <Ironholds> and because it's a female activist it's okay. I think.
�08[17:43] * derp does some rapping,
[17:43] <njsg> Peter-C: what's going on with video cards?
[17:43] <Moe_Epsilon> how about rappings?
[17:43] <Ironholds> Panyd: the problem is - what about gay rapists?
[17:43] <Ironholds> really, you're giving them what they want
[17:43] <Panyd> Ironholds: I don't want to see anyone raped if that helps
�08[17:43] <derp> eminem?
[17:43] <Qcoder00> Ironholds: This was a female activst of the all men are scum are design....
[17:43] <Ironholds> "wait, you mean so if I get my rocks off with someone, you'll offer me free anal penetration forever?"
[17:43] <MuZemike> Raper's Delight
[17:43] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: ahh. A crazy person.
[17:43] <Ironholds> Panyd: yes, this is because you're sane.
[17:43] <Qcoder00> .. i got off lightly cause I was  in 'drag' at the time.... ;)
[17:43] <Ironholds> well, not sane. certifiably insane. but the sane kind.
[17:43] <Panyd> :D :D :D
[17:44] <Moe_Epsilon> Qcoder00: too much Lifetime television
�08[17:44] * derp hugs Panyd
[17:44] <Ironholds> you're crazy of the "addled, but working on it" variety. Not "mummy had chapped nipples when she breastfed me and now my life is ruined forever"
�06[17:44] * Panyd hugs derp
�03[17:44] * James_F|Away is now known as James_F
[17:44] <Ironholds> James_F: ears burning?
�06[17:44] * Peter-C volunteers for a Panyd raping
�06[17:44] * Peter-C starts the line
[17:44] <James_F> Whut?
[17:44] <Qcoder00> Peter-C: No
[17:44] <Moe_Epsilon> o_O
[17:44] <Ironholds> Peter-C: that's disturbing on about fifteen different levels
�08[17:44] * derp gives Panyd a anti-rape condom.
[17:44] <Ironholds> James_F: nuthin'. mindspillage and you will be in SF at the same time, btw.#
[17:45] <Ironholds> and I shall not be :(
[17:45] <Ironholds> unless I go "fuck it" and fly myself out for lulz.
[17:45] <mindspillage> No--we will just barely miss each other, apparently.
[17:45] <Ironholds> which I am actually SERIOUSLY tempted to do.
[17:45] <Ironholds> mindspillage: excellent, the world is safe.
[17:45] <harej> Ironholds: When you end up in San Francisco, remember: imported whisky shop within walking distance from the hotel they put you up in.
[17:45] <Qcoder00> Panyd: The current disscusion got started because I mentioned to Ironholds that somoen on another channel had claimed 'castrating rapists' was going to far... a point I said I disagreed with
[17:45] <Ironholds> harej: I can get scotch at home.
[17:45] <harej> FAIR ENOUGH.
[17:45] <Ironholds> literally. there are bottles in my home.
[17:46] <harej> I just thought it was cool. :(
[17:46] <Qcoder00> Ironholds: You liquify Adhesive tape? XD
[17:46] <Ironholds> harej: yes, but you come from the US
[17:46] <Qcoder00> :O
[17:46] <Ironholds> Qcoder00: you're not funny.
[17:46] <Panyd> ....
[17:46] <Qcoder00> Some people laugh when I attempt humor
�06[17:46] * Panyd is disturbed by this whole thing
�08[17:46] <derp> we all are.
[17:47] <Qcoder00> Panyd: Sorry...
[17:47] <James_F> Ironholds> No, we won't, sadly.
[17:47] <Qcoder00> Shall we change the topic to Kittens?
[17:47] <James_F> Bah.
[17:47] <James_F> Laaaaag.
[17:47] <geniice> wait what? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_of_King_Charles_the_Martyr
[17:47] <James_F> Ironholds> Come on, book some flights. You can afford it.
[17:48] <Panyd> James_F: Get Sue to buy me one
[17:48] <James_F> geni> Yes?
[17:48] <Panyd> or even better, you buy me one :p
[17:48] <James_F> Panyd> Ha. You think I'm made of money? :-)
[17:48] <Ironholds> James_F: should I really? :P
[17:49] <Panyd> James_F: .....yes?
�06[17:49] * Panyd takes a leg off James_F
[17:49] <Panyd> it's like a pinata
[17:49] <geniice> James_F just seems odd. Most canonised kings were from an earlier period. Also I have some idea what his armies got up to
[17:49] <James_F> Ironholds> Yes! But make sure you're out for the 3rd/4th or there'll be no over-lap with me.
[17:49] <Ironholds> James_F: out for the. what?
�06[17:49] * Peter-C takes one of Panyd's legs
�06[17:49] * Peter-C runs
[17:49] <James_F> geni> It's canonisation. It's not meant to be rational.
[17:50] <harej> James_F was a king?
[17:50] <James_F> Panyd> Pah.
�08[17:50] * derp gives Peter-C a party doll
[17:50] <James_F> Ironholds> As in, out for this coming weekend. :-)
[17:50] <James_F> harej> No, Charles I was.
[17:50] <Ironholds> James_F: okay. So, leaving this coming weekend? :P
[17:50] <James_F> Ironholds> Yeah.
[17:50] <Ironholds> James_F: I'm more concerned about the reaction to "so, you're not flying me in. I'm bored, see you Monday"
[17:51] <Ironholds> just hypothetically, are you snarfing Philippe's sofa?
[17:51] <James_F> No comment. :-)
�08[17:51] <derp> he's humping it actually.
[17:52] <Pilif12p> Elections start in 7 minutes
�06[17:53] * James_F grins.
�06[17:53] * Panyd gulps
[17:53] <James_F> Pilif12p> Err. Surely in 67?
�08[17:53] <derp> elections for what
[17:53] <Pilif12p> yeah
[17:53] <James_F> Why on Earth would it start at 23:00 rather than 00:00 UTC?
[17:53] <Pilif12p> that
[17:53] <Panyd> I thought it was 67
[17:53] <Pilif12p> 7, 67
[17:53] <Pilif12p> close enough
�03[17:53] * LauraHale (~LauraHale@wikipedia/LauraHale) has joined #wikipedia-en
�08[17:54] <derp> I wonder if i should use rainbow supports
[17:54] <Pilif12p> derp: you cannot.
�08[17:54] <derp> y
[17:54] <Pilif12p> it uses securepoll
�08[17:55] <derp> :(
[17:55] <Panyd> what's a rainbow support?
�08[17:55] * derp chuckles.
�08[17:55] <derp> Panyd, it's a awesome support
�08[17:55] <derp> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Zalgo/Rainbow_Support
[17:56] <Panyd> http://soundcloud.com/thmole/i-love-unicorns
[17:56] <Panyd> is my response to that
�08[17:56] <derp> Unicorns are fucking sexy.
[17:56] <Panyd> long as it's consensual derp
�08[17:56] <derp> true
�08[17:57] <derp> i wouldn't do it with a gazelle tough

�08[17:57] * derp gives Panyd a snuggie
[17:57] <Panyd> I love my snuggie!
[17:57] <Panyd> I pretend to be a wizard
[17:58] <Ironholds> I forget what happened to my snugg-OH WAIT.

[17:58] <Ironholds> ahh. necromancer!
�15[17:58] * pianista|away (~la_pianis@wikipedia/La-Pianista) Quit (Quit: On the other hand, you have different fingers.�)
[17:58] <Ironholds> they carry a steel dagger and a robe. they also dissolve into dust when you kill em
�06[17:58] * Ironholds has, perhaps, been playing too much skyrim
[17:59] <Pilif12p> http://www.google-melange.com/gci/task/view/google/gci2011/7116256
[17:59] <Pilif12p> mine. all mine. :3
�08[17:59] * derp gives Pilif12p a earworm
[17:59] <Ironholds> I got it on thursday; steam informs me I've played it for..46 hours.
[17:59] <Ironholds> that can't be natural
[17:59] <Pilif12p> Ironholds: skyrim?
[17:59] <Ironholds> skyrim
[17:59] <Pilif12p> there's a petition to ban it in US
[17:59] <Panyd> Why?
[17:59] <Ironholds> on the grounds that it's too addictive?
[18:00] <Ironholds> or features MAGIC AND OTHER SATANIC AND ANTI-CHRISTIAN THINGS RAWRRR?
�08[18:00] <derp> http://youtu.be/5eC3qc6QUow
[18:00] <Pilif12p> ircdearia: the latter.
[18:00] <Pilif12p> Ironholds too.
[18:00] <Ironholds> heh
[18:01] <Pilif12p> yeah, they want to ban it because of the homosexuality
�06[18:01] * Panyd did not know she could be gay
�08[18:01] <derp> wut
[18:01] <Pilif12p> MEANWHILE there's a petition with nearly 30k sigs to legalize gay marriage nationwide
�06[18:01] * Panyd goes back to playing
�08[18:01] * derp is addicted to Skyward Swords
[18:01] <MuZemike> Brown v. ESB - that won't happen
[18:02] <Panyd> http://dominion.isotropic.org/ this is highly addictive
[18:02] <MuZemike> wait, Sykrim or gay marriage?

[18:06] <mindspillage> Dec. 5 or 6; I haven't booked yet.

[18:07] <Ironholds> James_F|Away, you bastard
[18:07] <Ironholds> that's £500 I'm never seeing again
[18:08] <Ironholds> now I should probably actually tell my manager that I'll be around
[18:10] <Ironholds> mindspillage: I recall you owe me punchings you've yet to deliver
[18:10] <Ironholds> remember! I don't like getting punched, but it's so dispiriting when you fail to deliver on promises. Really hurts our friendship and that.

[18:38] <Gfoley4> Logan_: ew.
[18:38] <Logan_> Fluttershy-EN: you need to work on your time subtracting skills
[18:38] <juancarlos> I watched the first 4 or 5 but I lost interest.... it seemed kind of forced.
[18:38] <Logan_> juancarlos: valid point; still waiting for the return of AD in 2013 (that'll be the day)
[18:39] <Gfoley4> Come back 30 Rock!
[18:39] <Logan_> I might have to resubscribe to Netflix...

[18:40] <Logan_> juancarlos: impressive
[18:40] <juancarlos> It honestly doesn't get old. I was laughing out loud all over again.
[18:41] <Fluttershy-EN> so everypony, who are you voting for?
[18:42] <Logan_> pretty sure that this channel isn't composed of equines
[18:42] <juancarlos> Who, what, when, where?
�06[18:42] * MuZemike won't vote for a bit
[18:42] <Fluttershy-EN> pretty sure this channel has at least two equines
[18:42] <Ironholds> Fluttershy-EN: if by that you mean "sad freaks and obsessives", quite possibly.

[18:45] <JG|Around> lolol
[18:45] <BarkingFish> Fluttershy-EN: i'd rather glue my balls to a high voltage power line
[18:46] <Logan_> BarkingFish: about:config?

[18:46] <Fluttershy-EN> But you're not explaining how it sucks.
[18:46] <juancarlos> IT IS SELF-EXPLANITORY.
[18:46] <juancarlos> open it :)
[18:46] <Fluttershy-EN> you're just making accusations with no explanation.

[18:48] <Fluttershy-EN> this is up-to-date
[18:48] <BarkingFish> Fluttershy-EN: ok - I'll explain. Page elements do not load correctly, there are no useful plugins for it which actually function, it regularly brings up errors on pages where other browsers work fine, in short it's about as much use as a chocolate teapot.
[18:48] <MuZemike> I normally do, but I'm on AndroIRC right now.
[18:48] <BarkingFish> Nascar1996: I do, what do you need?
[18:49] <Fluttershy-EN> If you want to accuse any browser of being shit, it should be IE or Safari.
[18:49] <Nascar1996> What could be causing the typing line to be on the right side of the screen?
[18:49] <Fluttershy-EN> Actually, exclude IE, because at least IE boots the damn web page, while Safari has to wait a few minutes.
[18:49] <MuZemike> FireFox is awfully bloaty
[18:50] <Panyd> MuZemike: bloaty but full o' goodies
[18:50] <Fluttershy-EN> specifically, IE 9
[18:50] <juancarlos> bloated with usefulness

[19:19] <Panyd> Ironholds: That we like shiny things

[19:19] <Ironholds> JoeGazz84: it's aimed at readers, not editors :P
[19:19] <Ironholds> and sure, they might
[19:20] <Ironholds> we will be looking at "how many people leave comments" as opposed to "how many people click stars" in the a/b testing
[19:20] <Ironholds> but if you give me 100,000 star ratings, 0 are actionable
[19:20] <Sp33dyphil> hi Demiurge1000
[19:20] <JoeGazz84> Hmm, That's interesting.
[19:20] <Demiurge1000> Sp33dyphil: yes, hello
[19:20] <Ironholds> even if textboxes only come up with 500 replies...some of them are going to be actionable ;p
[19:20] <Panyd> derp: Why?
[19:20] <Gfoley4> Trolls will have fun with this…
[19:20] <JoeGazz84> Ironholds: I like it though if we scrap the stupid 4 types of comments.
[19:21] <JoeGazz84> And Gfoley4 brings a good point, that's an easier way for spam feedback.
�03[19:21] * Jcaraballo is now known as Jcaraballo|away
[19:21] <Ironholds> JoeGazz84/ Gfoley4 good point
[19:22] <Ironholds> so, the abuse filter, edit filter, etc, etc are going to be built in
[19:22] <Gfoley4> ah.
[19:22] <JoeGazz84> I'd hope so.
[19:22] <Ironholds> and we're going to be testing which version brings the best signal:noise ratio
[19:22] <Ironholds> so it's not just about volume, it's about "which proposed design gives us actionable comments but little spam? Or if not little spam, less spam?"
[19:22] <Ironholds> I actually had to talk them into letting anonymous people use it in the first place. argh.
[19:22] <JoeGazz84> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:FeedbackDashboard/8568 <-- Ironholds I've seen lots of that... Maybe you should look into that?
