<[newbie]> Somebody has usurped my userrname
  <bumm13> which is?...
<[newbie]> I am Cimon Avaro.

<TimStarling> open source software represents a leap in
              the efficiency of production of software
<TimStarling> like the transition from "cottage" textiles
              to mass production
<TimStarling> the quality is worse, but it is much cheaper
<FennecFoxen> that's debatable
<TimStarling> nobody wants hand-made socks anymore
<FennecFoxen> it may have been worse at first...
  <Submarine> TimStarling: open source software represents
              a leap in theefficiency of production of
              software --> ????
<TimStarling> for some reason when people hang around
              on IRC long enough, they think coherent
              arguments can be made entirely using the
              question mark character
%
<AdamBishop>  I also pronounce "lieutenant" the British way,

<TimStarling> it was raining, I was riding along an internal road in
              the university, with people walking along the footpath
<TimStarling> and idiot girl with hood decides to suddenly change
              direction and step out onto the road without looking
<TimStarling> no peripheral vision, she didn't see me until I emerged
              from behind the hood, a few cm from her face
   <skimpIzu> so? any contact with girls is positive. treasure your
              moment
     <bumm13> lol
  <camembert> heh, so speaks the desperate man

   <SethIlys> Hmm... I'm getting 500 errors.
     <Cyrius> yay technical difficulties!
<FennecFoxen> SethIlys- that's a lot of errors.
%
    <Raul654> Jeedo - the best way to end those is
              with a uniltateral declaration
    <Raul654> (Like I did for Thatcher)
<FennecFoxen> heh. And when it is contested?
    <Raul654> I edit the manual of style accordingly
              and then cite it :)
%
<FennecFoxen> Wikipedia is throwing 1205s everywhere.
    <Raul654> it's as dead as elvis, here
     <Cyrius> dead as elvis here too. By that I mean it's up
              and running but I don't expect anyone to believe me

<Xirzon> & is an evil magical character
<Xirzon> if you use it in your article
         titles a curse will lay upon them
<Xirzon> and no good shall ever become of them

<Raul654> how the hell did [[List of people on stamps of Gabon]]
          get on my watchlist?
%
  <Raul654> I mean, is it POV to say that (for example) George Bush's
            enviromental policy is terrible? No, it's a fact.
<dannyisme> we cannot say that it is terrible
<dannyisme> we would be killed for that

    <Raul654> Fennec - obviously. You aren't going to be using highways
              to transport stuff between California and Hawaii
 <OldakQuill> We could nail a carriage onto the back of a blue whale...
<FennecFoxen> OldakQuill, but I don't think the whale acheives optimal
              speed at near-surface depths.
%
  <SethIlys> lol. SpaceShipOne only passed the 100km mark by 400 feet. :)
<OldakQuill> Ah dear - what a terrible sentence that is Seth

     <larne> Raul654: you need some [[Coffee|wikimedicine]]

    <Grunt`> wikimedicine could mean: * [[Coffee]] * [[Tea]] * [[Fruit juice]]
             * Other [[beverage]]s * [[Nothing]] {{disambig}}
     <larne> Grunt`: {{npov}}
     <larne> coffee is the *only* wikimedicine
   <Raul654> Ironically, as I said earlier, I have a picture from the US

 <Vikingstad> ok, that's it for doomsday.. back up :)
     <Grunt`> YaY. :P
<VascoDaGama> Don't you just love the ability to turn
              doomsday on and off at will? ;)
     <Grunt`> VascoDaGama: 99% of action movies will do
              that to some degree. :P
     <Grunt`> VascoDaGama: big scary doomsday device all ready
              to go, and pushing one button or flipping one
              switch turns it off. :P

 <Raul654> and subtract out all the people who have something better to
           do on friday night
 <Raul654> ...have we significantly reduced the set?

      <larne> Today's task:  find an image for [[OpenVMS filesystem]]
     <Grunt`> larne: Find a hard drive that uses OpenVMS, rip it apart,
              and take a pic of the platters.  ;)
<DavidGerard> larne: the gates over hell, with "ABANDON HOPE ALL
              YE WHO ENTER HERE" over them
<DavidGerard> if you can find a GFDL image
     <Grunt`> LOL
      <larne> I imagine most images of the gates of hell are
              copyright by satan- he doesn't seem like the gfdl type
     <Grunt`> larne: I suspect someone could do an artistic rendition
    <emRick`> Satan invented copyright ... is the modern form of Babel
     <Grunt`> larne: Don't know who 'someone' might be, but there must
              be at least one person out there ;)
<DavidGerard> artistic renditions aren't encyclopaedic!
     <Grunt`> DavidGerard: if they're unartistic enough, sure they are.
 <AdamBishop> like the artistic rendition of bigfoot?
     <Grunt`> DavidGerard: I'm thinking of pictures in the style
              of prephotographic portraits. :P
      <larne> what about an artistic rendition of a photograph?
     <Grunt`> Or a photograph of an artistic rendition.
     <JamesF> What about a computer 'artistic' effect
              applied to a photograph?
     <JamesF> Or a photograph of a photograph.
     <Grunt`> Or a rendition of a rendition.
      <larne> what about a sepia effect applied to an artistic rendition?
     <JamesF> Or a POVRay re-rendering of the scene? :-)
     <Grunt`> Whatever works and is GFDL is okay by me. :P
<DavidGerard> I HAVE CRAYONS
     <Grunt`> DavidGerard: you know what to do, then! :D
      <larne> I think an image of the gates of hell could be considered POV
      <larne> for one, how do we know hell has gates?
<DavidGerard> larne: you are of course right. it should be
              illustrating [[NTFS]]
    <emRick`> larne: hell won't get get gates for a few more decades ...
              bill is still pretty healthy

     <JamesF> Some American twit on /. is saying that the people
              who went to the US went to avoid "taxation without
              representation". *sighs*
<DavidGerard> JamesF: YOU MUST BE SOME SORT OF TERRORIST
              LOVING LIBERAL TO SAY THAT
     <JamesF> David> To say that he's a twit? ;-)
<DavidGerard> YOU SOCIALIST
<DavidGerard> THE INTERNET IS AMERICAN YOU COMMIE
<DavidGerard> SEE!!!!
     <JamesF> Actually, pro-Communist, but never mind :-)
 <AdamBishop> well that is what Americans are taught in history classes
    <emRick`> DavidGerard: THE WIKIPEDIA IS COMMIE YOU AMERICAN
 <AdamBishop> he's probably some 15 year old kid who hasn't
              taken a real history class yet
<DavidGerard> OMFG NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

     <Olathe> Wikipedia is a distributed computer program...
              no puny humans, please.
    <emRick`> Wikipedia: please don't hurt us when you become
              sapient ... remember, we on #wikipedia adore you
              and worship you
     <JamesF> I am myself merely a small and short-term cog-part
              of the great machine that is Wikipedia.
     <JamesF> So, who are the spanners? ;-)
      <larne> I *am* Wikipedia.
    <emRick`> larne: I worship you
<DavidGerard> larne: stop crashing so much. just because you
              want more computers.

<FennecFoxen> yath- that's POV! :)
       <yath> Oh damn!  *kicks self*
  <Mark_Ryan> yath: it's just a movie. I'd rather report
              on its political effects when they happen,
              not speculate on them beforehand
 <AdamBishop> are you suggesting Spider Man will not
              influence world politics?
 <AdamBishop> I am appalled, sir!

<juxho> here are the basic assumptions i'm relying on: there
        will be [[opinion wiki]] where strict syntax will be
        required to get aggregate information to [[publish wiki]],
        non-neutral-pov is the rule. there will be research
        wiki where all non-neutral-pov stuff will get axed
        immediatelly with a kind notice to go mess around in the
        [[opinion wiki]]. [[publish wiki]] will import from
        [[research wiki]] pending that someone will bet their own
        credibility in declaring some information so certain that
        it needs to be published. also aggregated (via SQL scripts
        written in a not-yet-decided language) will be used to
        automatically update the articles in [[publish wiki]] with
        the aggregate information from [[opinion wiki]] with
        highlights and links to the whole mess of opinions

<TimStarling> I was just hassling someone for writing criticism
              on a brainstorming page
<TimStarling> I was thinking... maybe we'd get better, more creative
              brainstorming if we actively deleted all criticism
<TimStarling> in a group discussion that's not usually possible,
