This conversation happened on Freenode's #perl the other day (I am "rindolf").
<alyx> /w/w 55
* apeiron gives alyx an award for failing that so much
* alyx hangs it up in the almighty fail closet
<rindolf> alyx: :-)
<alyx> rindolf: :D
<Su-Shee> 55 chat windows are too much. ;)
<Botje> I keep my irssi trimmed to < 30
<Su-Shee> I have 3. ;)
<alyx> Botje: o_o
<alyx> I have 56 windows atm, before I cleaned up a bit, I was at
<woldrich> One friend in each window, and you have 56 times more
friends than me.
<Su-Shee> bah. I like to have real conversations and to really follow
a handful of channels and that's it..
<rindolf> alyx: wow.
<perlsyntax> Is there away i can look up my modules with cpan that i
<perlsyntax> if i am right.
<Su-Shee> wow. facebook has a chat too.
<DrForr> perldoc -q installed
<rindolf> Su-Shee: you can use a Jabber client for that.
* pragma_ gets annoyed when he exceeds 19 windows.
<rindolf> We should create a #perl <-> StackOverflowish interface.
<Su-Shee> after gotten angry, I don't use my jabber stuff anymore as
<apeiron> rindolf, Feel free to make a shitoverflow interface. Just
don't put it here.
<rindolf> apeiron: :-)
<apeiron> no, not :-)
<apeiron> more like /ban *!*@*
<Su-Shee> who needs all those chats...
<apeiron> People with very empty lives.
<Su-Shee> well it fills empty windows.. ;)
<Su-Shee> or, there's recently chat rockstars and chat ninjas.. ;)
<Botje> but you don't /see/ chat ninjas!
<Su-Shee> that's why I have so few channels.. no ninja chatting with
<DrForr> Not that you *know* of.
<Botje> http://www.nichtlustig.de/toondb/100701.html # relevant
<candide> Title of Botje's link: NICHTLUSTIG
<Su-Shee> damn. what if a ninja is asking me out and I don't get it
because it's an invisible conversation?
<Su-Shee> Botje: harhar ;)
<Botje> Su-Shee: if dinner suddenly appears you just married a
<Su-Shee> in a secret, hidden ceremony?
<Su-Shee> Botje: was I there? how was I? ;)
<pragma_> Su-Shee: your inner ninja will detect it and go on the
date, if you have one.
<Su-Shee> pragma_: ah. interesting. so I'll find myself suddenly in
some ninja-restaurant and don't remember how I got there?
<Caelum> DrForr: mintty seems nice
<Caelum> DrForr: there's also puttycyg
<DrForr> It is, but 3 days ina row I've hit that same key combo, and
I can't reset it in the dialog box.
<pragma_> Su-Shee: no, your ninja will be there while your you
<rindolf> Ninjas. :-)
<pragma_> This is why ninjas engage in rigorous 24/7 training of
their ninjistu; so that they may be more in touch with
their inner ninjas and be more aware of what it is doing.
<Su-Shee> pragma_: so I stay an idiot no matter what. ;)
<pragma_> your idiot remains an idiot forever, but you can train your
non-idiot to overpower your idiot.
<DrForr> But... shouldn't your inner ninja be hidden?
<Caelum> DrForr: KiTTy also has the PuttyCyg patch, and only needs
the cthelper.exe from PuttyCyg
<pragma_> When you have attained true enlightenment of the ninja,
then you too will become like the hidden tiger and will
enjoy the pleasures of the crouching dragon.
<Su-Shee> I better not google pleasures of the crouching dragon..
<Su-Shee> DrForr: No match for "ASKAINNERNINJA.COM".
<Su-Shee> DrForr: go ahead ;)
<mst> whould be ask -an- inner ninja.
<Su-Shee> also no match ;)
<Su-Shee> *lol* askdrninja.com is taken ;)
<Botje> there's also drmcninja
<Su-Shee> well we could always chose to go down the rockstar path...
<rindolf> We should become Perl pirates. Arrrrrrrrrr!
* alyx hands rindolf an eyepatch
<rindolf> Unleash your inner bucaneer.
<rindolf> "I'm Guybrush Threepwood. Mighty Pirate."
<apeiron> Yeah, I've been doing that for ages.
<Su-Shee> .oO(johnny depp.. hm.. ;)
<rindolf> And Keira Knightly.
<woldrich> What does '.oO' mean?
<rindolf> woldrich: saying something.
<rindolf> Like a talk balloon.
<rindolf> Maybe a thought balloon?
<pragma_> . o ( This is a thought balloon. )
<woldrich> oh. I'm too old for this shit
<rindolf> woldrich: it doesn't matter as long as you're young at
<rindolf> And there are no young Perl programmers. ;-)
* pragma_ prefers his heart matured and fortified.
<rindolf> As "Perl is dead."
* Caelum prefers his hearts barbecued
<rindolf> Well, that wasn't very funny.
<Su-Shee> I wouldn't really call mst "old" ;)
<BinGOs> zombie perl
<rindolf> Su-Shee: I know a Perl programmer who's now a university
* apeiron sends zombie kindergarteners after rindolf
<Su-Shee> well dr dobbs agrees.
<rindolf> Knew him since he was in Junior high.
<rindolf> apeiron: :-)
<BinGOs> perl eats your brains.
* rindolf trains the zombie kindergarteners to be mighty Perl
<pragma_> I've always been annoyed by the lack of zombie children
running around in Left4Dead, et al.
<Botje> pragma_: shooting kids is bad mmkay
<pragma_> At least Dead Space 2 has mutant baby toddlers you can
stomp like fattened mosquitos.
<Khisanth> but these would be dead kids
<apeiron> very important distinction!
<Khisanth> hmm well really neither, just bags of disease
<rindolf> Perl vampires!
* pragma_ would rather be a werewolf.
<apeiron> Khisanth, every source I've read says zombies are undead.
* rindolf shoots pragma_ with the silver bullet.
<Khisanth> the l4d ones aren't really zombies :)
<Botje> they're more like 28 days later-style zombies
<apeiron> eh, modern games get everything wrong.
<woldrich> That girl in Resident Evil is cute.
* Su-Shee recommends "the walking dead"
<pragma_> L4D, Resident Evil, Dead Space -- these are all "zombies"
despite however they came to be such!
<Botje> yes, walking dead is <3
<Caelum> I haven't seen the new resident evil movie yet, was it
<woldrich> oh yes
<Botje> it had milla shooting stuff
<Botje> what more do you want?
<pragma_> I was thinking of the Resident Evil 5 video game actually
<Khisanth> Botje: multiple millas shooting stuff?
<pragma_> System Shock
<apeiron> plot. thought-provoking themes.
<Botje> pragma_++ # yes!
<pragma_> System Shock 2
<Botje> my first-born for a system shock movie
<Botje> (done decently, that is)
* f00li5h nuzzles Botje
<Su-Shee> Botje: since when do you have a firstborn?
<Botje> aagh! zomb.. oh. hi kit!
<Botje> Su-Shee: i will have!
<Khisanth> Botje: probably won't be done nicely :P
