[22:45:03] * Hielorw nods quietly to himself.
[22:45:10] <Hielorw> On that note, how do you make a non-quiet nod?
[22:45:21] <Lambo> it involves a table
[22:46:06] <Epsilon> You bob your head up and down while yelling "NODNODNODNODNOD"
[22:46:10] <Epsilon> >_>
[22:46:23] <Lambo> I prefer the table explanation
[22:46:37] <Epsilon> Mine makes for the better mental image, though. :D
[22:46:53] <Epsilon> That being said, you could be nodding to yourself while chuckling.
[22:47:07] <Lambo> then there is the more extreme nod.
[22:47:11] <Lambo> Headbanging

Nodding - A misunderstood form of art.

[13:32:08] TNeo: HAIL THE <<South African bad word>> PROBE!

[13:32:19] * Krys slaps TNeo
[13:32:24] TNeo: wha?
[13:32:25] Xyon: <<South African bad word>> Probe?
[13:32:26] Krys: thats blasphemous

[13:32:33] Eccentrus: <<South African bad word>> Probe?
[13:32:34] TNeo: um...
[13:32:43] Xyon: DO NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE PROBE IN VAIN.
[13:32:46] * Eccentrus takes a torch and points at TNeo

[13:32:48] TNeo: GASP!
[13:32:58] Eccentrus: we have a blasphemer here
[13:32:59] TNeo: I have taken the name of the Probe in vain...
[13:33:11] Xyon: BLASPHEMER!
[13:33:15] TNeo: I MUST SELF-PUNISH!
[13:33:18] Xyon: BURN HIM! BURN HIM!
[13:33:32] * Eccentrus is taking a jar full of gasoline
[13:33:48] Xyon: Yea verily, TNeo shall be re-entered without a heat shield for his most heinous crime.
[13:34:04] Eccentrus: on JUpiter
[13:34:13] TNeo: On the Sun! D:
[13:34:17] Eccentrus: lol
[13:35:42] Xyon: Here runneth the transmission: Houston, Probe: Those who forsake me, who take my designation in vain, who mock and shun me, who disbelieve, let them experience the white-hot fury of my rage. Let them deorbit with bare thruster and face the inferno of re-entry without the protection that I, in my wisdom, grant those who believe.
[13:37:04] Xyon: LET THEM TAKE THE SINNER, and let him be cast into the void, on a parabolic trajectory to his demise of his own making. For this, decrees your Probe.

See how we deal with blasphemers?

Those who anger the Probe do so at their own risk. We will find you.

Aviation is also a big part of the conversations in #orbiter
22:32 Hielor_l i came out of teh clouds like way off to the side of the runway
22:32 Hielor_l but a couple 4g turns got me where i needed to be
22:33 Zatman heh
22:33 Lambo my issue was my HSI was telling me I was far right of 9R.. when I was FAR LEFT
22:33 Zatman 4g turns can fix anything :p
22:33 Lambo I think the navradio got confused with the backcourse from when I tuned to the ILS east of 27L
22:33 Lambo radio frequency glitches in FSX multiplayer are annoying as crap
22:34 ATC Am I missing a session?
22:35 Lambo no
22:35 Lambo tlking about last night
22:35 Lambo *talking
22:35 ATC Ah.
22:35 ATC Mine was that irritating Vert Speed glitch.
22:35 ATC That resulted in it INSISTING that I land short of the runway.
22:36 ATC It was like: "Hey! Land on someone's house COME ON! It'll be COOL!"
22:36 ATC And I was like: "WHAT! NO-U!"
22:36 ATC And it was like: "It's cool man! It's like Red Bull for airplanes!"
22:36 ATC So I was like: "Over-caffiniation is bad! Mmmkay!?"
22:37 ATC Thus it was like: "Well fork you!"
22:37 Zatman rofl
22:37 ATC And so I was: "No, YOU." *AUTOPILOT OFF*
Yes, as you can probably tell, the convo was slightly more exciting real-time...

You teach that ILS who's boss. Real Pilots land their planes with nothing but eyeballs and overconfidence, anyway.

:p

There used to be a rule set of the IRC channel, although I can't find it now. One of the points said that you can not use info gathered there to go against somebody.

My personal opinion is that I don't like the "show" part of it - writing something on IRC in hope to be cited here. ("Look, Ma!")

Thirdly, on Bash.org you have relative anonymity, while we all know each other here, so let's not post disses.

Absolutely, This thread is meant more to encourage people to come into #orbiter and join in the sometimes lunatic fun that we have there. It's also meant to give non-irc members a good laugh and it is not EVER meant to be used to insult someone.

Alright guys; let's all calm down before this degenerates into a flame war and suffers the same fate as all the other good topics set on fire; the kingdom of Locked.

(14:41:45)<Garyw>"13:41KazTVsorry I write slow"
(14:41:54)<Garyw>"13:41KazTVmy name Toqtar"
(14:41:59)* Garyw wonders why he gets the nutters
(14:42:09)<Garyw>"KazTVI from Kazahkstan and I do research for TV"
(14:42:53)<Garyw>"KazTVwould you say it should be ok to smoke in sport club?"
