Gamers With Jobs - Unofficial IRC Channel

Yeah. They're not.

That got damn NSFW the other night, not that I'm complaining.

It's Gamers With Jobs, not Gamers With Kids and/Or Parents Looking Over Their Shoulder.

Unfortunately, I don't have the internet time to idle in #gwj but I already joined a few times. I'll probably be a regular as soon as university starts around here.

Since I'm always on the IRC channel I've been able to set up some stats -- these auto-update each day:

http://gwjstats.linuxgamers.net/

Enjoy!

Thanks, pneuman!

Funny stuff pneuman

Datin brings happiness to the world. 25.1% lines contained smiling faces.

Yeah, I have a tendency to do that.

I got to the party late and i'm already pretty active. I think I remember why I haven't used IRC in a while.

did quakenet just go down?

As a whole, definitely not. Maybe just your server. The channel is still full of folks.

Join the channel, or risk missing gems like this:

[13:40] <+RangerRick> http://cgi.ebay.com/Powerful-LOVE-SP...
[13:40] <+VeggiePirate> oh ebay <3
[13:40] <+RangerRick> a friend of mine linked that, and is now debating the relative merits of $7.99 worth of voodoo weiner juice, or $7.99 worth of viagra tabs

You also get insights into what GWJ folks do in their private time:

[13:48] <+RangerRick> this is what I get for typing 1-handed

Everyone loves quoting out of context!

Hey, I said after that that it's because I was holding our cat.

You think that people knowing you were holding your cat somehow makes that quote look any better?

After all, it was his "cat". You didn't mention that either.

Hup. Looks like someone let the cat out of their pants. bag.

The IRC is now my new home away from home. Or more accurately, how I can now integrate GWJ into my life in real-time!

Well I am idling now, as are 29 other people. Why we are all idling and not chatting (and why I am posting here instead of in IRC) is beyond me. hurray for stats!

so does the user name you use through web interface get states? it would then be advisable for use to continue using the sameone I am guess. (if you are the competitive type that is)

There's no way to register your nick on quakenet, so just hope your GWJ name doesn't collide with someone who's already online.

just to bring the IRC community back to the GWJ forum, heres a block quote from the chat currently

[13:55] i think you can only call it genocide if the introduction of smallpox was deliberate
[13:55] It's only 3rd degree genocide
[13:56] Are there any other sources for the other stuff? I mean, one man's word and all that..
[13:56] well you can blame him for initiating the spanish invasion which led to the genocide through forced assimilation and the bringing of disease
[13:56] == Mediocrity_Or_D [[email protected]] has joined #gwj
[13:56] FSeven: How can you blame him? Did he lead the Spanish army or make the decision to invade?

aren't we a learned bunch?

*edit*

why not keep in running, heres another

[14:49] what should I put on this potato?
[14:49] BACON BITS
[14:49] and physical properties
[14:49] Screw the bits. BACON!

if deference to the already substantial thread on bacon here http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/4.... bacon is dear to the gwjer heart

The genocide discussion was all FSeven and Duoae's fault.

It also went on surprisingly long given just how fast Godwin's Law was invoked, even if that part was a bit obvious.

Does this count as meta-IRC?

What isn't Duoae's fault?

1) Blotto! Pay attention! Actually, we have had chat pretty regular lately most times of day. Especially during work hours in the continental U.S., for some reason...

2) While you cannot register a nick on QuakeNet and reserve it for yourself (as far as I know), you can register with Q in order to get some channel privileges such as auto-voice? And other things.

If you read the rest of the quotes you get a good idea Here's a hint for you: chocolate cloned Columbus.

Haha, my other quote (from today) is "Recently it's been taking longer".... not good for OOCT!!

I might be retarded but I can not get colloquy to connect to the server listed above
gameservers.tx.us.quakenet.org:6667 is what I am putting in the server field and it is failing.

Have you tried just irc.quakenet.org? Is there a reason you want to connect to that specific server? Just going to the address I listed will let the network automatically choose the server.

Also I just tried gameservers.tx.us.quakenet.org in mIRC and it connected, but I don't use Colloquy so I dunno what else there is to it.

Yeah, it's pointless to connect to a particular server because if it goes down, you're stuffed. On the other hand, irc.quakenet.org is the global rotation, so you've got a fairly high chance of getting a server miles away from you, which means lagathon supreme.

What you want to do is connect to your country rotation - irc.XX.quakenet.org, where XX is UK/US/whatever your TLD is. This will auto-connect you to a working server that's nearby, and will do nice things like load balancing across all the servers so one doesn't get swamped with connections.
