16:27 <@Briareos> it is now apparent that the nintendo ds exists for
  no other reason than to provide yet another platform
to rerelease all the nintendo franchises on
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> the largest problem in games today is
  disorientation
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> therefore we introduce the ds, which has
  a map on all the time
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> to avoid disorientation
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> which is... uh...
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> a big problem

21:29 <+zakk> icculus__: I think I'll listen to this uh,, sometime I'm
  not within earshot of my girlfriend
21:29 < icculus__> I said it was rap, which means by default it's
  demeaning to women!

20:05 < jvalenzu> camera phones seem handy when you can't remember a
  girl's face but you have her number
20:05 < jvalenzu> so for habitual alchoholics it must be awesome
20:06 < zakk> I have a picture of my girlfriend as my wallpaper on my
  phone
20:06 <@Briareos> loooser

Got a washington state drivers license !!!11

I think my box is overheating, since I solved the general lockups
with the acpi stuff I wrote out in the lgfaq, and when I touch my
heatsinks they feel waaaaay too warm.
Going to have to get a new case if I can at some point :|
The one I want is really expensive though, it should help a fair bit.
I think my video card really needs active cooling, at least when it is
rendering OGL it seems to get too hot, though I have only encountered
one lock up/reboot which is obviously due to the video card.

15:53 < erek> zakk: how does the Ti 4200 do?
