< Porost> I play nethack for fun
< stenno1> Porost, umad
<lorimer> new subject: boobies
<Eidolos> I seriously doubt Rodney would use a constant rng seed.
<`Masque> The source would doubt that too.
<Eidolos> I didn't feel like loading up the ole browser. :)
<lorimer> firm, round boobies the size of canteloupes
<Eidolos> Lorimer makes an interesting point.
<ZenMasterJG> shouldnt it use the length of @arg in rand() instead of just @arg?
<lorimer> going bugejabugejabugejabugeja
<GreyKnight> Your ideas intrigue me and I wish to learn more.
<lorimer> ZenMasterJG: boobies
* ZenMasterJG gets distracted by boobies.
<Gaulgath> You have a sad feeling for a moment, then it passes.
<Spazm> your pet died
<Gaulgath> O RLY?
<Grunt> WHERE WAS MY AMULET!? :(
<Rodney> SGrunt (Wiz Elf Fem Cha), 592551 points, killed by a fire vortex
<lament> in my pants!
<Grunt> Not that amulet, bryce.
<Cwiiis> Work is evil... stops me from playing NetHack :(
< th> whee. we got cursed -2 charisma t-shirts from work. tight as hell and wont come off
< Rodney> zid (Val Hum Fem Neu), 976 points, killed by a black pudding
< zid> I didn't go anywhere near a black pudding honest
<Rodney> k21971 (Wiz Hum Mal Neu), 293822 points, T:24146, killed by a troll, while frozen by a potion
<billnye> k21971: U MAD?

< bcode> YANI: new role, RNG; starts with a pet d4 that may grow into a d6, then a d12, later a d20
< negion> I would prefer a role that starts with a pet d2 that may grow into a d4, then a d8, then a d16, then a d32, which has a bisection attack!
< bclewis> Heh. I was in a vault, and I ate a mimic corpse:
< bclewis> Suddenly one of the Vault's guards enters!
< bclewis> Puzzled, he turns around and leaves.
< _Q> "Hey! Who left that orange in here?"
< rawrmage> BurningLed: have you considered playing a gnomish wizard?
< Rodney> imphasing (Tou Hum Mal Neu), 220 points, killed by a gnomish wizard
< BurningLed> Probably should have, I also like neutral artifacts
< Drjebus> speak of the devil
<aero2600> Whoa.. why does a potion of oil cost so much?
<Eidolos> Did you apply-test in the store?
<Eidolos> Shks really screw you over when you light up in the store.
<Eidolos> "Usage fee! Yendorian fuel tax! Oh, and you owe me full price of the potion IN ADDITION MWA HA HA"
<Poeir> I've got a problem.
<cheapy|> Poeir, other than the fact that it's saturday night and you're playing nethack?
< Smeghead_> heh, "l - 2245 rocks"
< hatta> smoke them all
< Smeghead_> smoke?
< hatta> you don't smoke rocks?
<kerio> omg, Adeon ascended!
<kerio> Adeon: I thought you weren't going to play!
<ais523> kerio: this is Adeon we're talking about, he probably ascended by mistake
<bhaak> missing hallucination monster: regular expression dragon!
<mra_> just wrote regular expression parser.. don't want to hear about that anymore.. :D
<bhaak> kerio: we already have an ncurses version and if I didn't had forgotten it would be on un.nethack.nu by now :(
<Megistos> You see a regex dragon! You quickly scrape together a parser.
<kerio> bhaak: just drop another critical bug on octe and set the build to "ncursed" while he's not looking
<scorchgeek> Megistos: lol
<Fluffymormegil> The regex dragon parses you into separate tokens! You die... --more--
<scorchgeek> Do you want your parse-ssions identified?
<ihope_> The barrow wight is dead!
<ashel> ding dong the wight is dead! which old wight? the barrow wight!
< scorchgeek> "You mount yourself."
< scorchgeek> That would be an interesting topological exercise. :)
<ykstort> as a platform linux is too much like me - fickle, flaky and disorganised, even incoherent
<ykstort> this is probably why I use it
* TAS_2012h slaps cbus_ around a bit with a large trout
* cbus_ slaps tas_2012h around a bit with a soldier ant
* Mucknert throws a rabbit between them
< cbus_> RUN!
< blindcoder> A KILLER RABBIT

< Izchak> pattern (Wiz Elf Mal Cha), 181 points, killed by a gnome lord
< Esa94> I see a pattern there
<Randley> CATKILLER (Wiz Hum Mal Cha), 0 points, killed by a kitten
<Adeon> knowing how to spell difficult artifact names is vital to be a successful nethack player!
<tarzeau> greycat: i just lost my job today
<greycat> more time to find that amulet!
<tarzeau> and murder people
< IanKeith> Yep, I just found a ring of polymorph the hard way.
< IanKeith> You turn into an Olog-hai! You break out of your armor!
< HiSPeed> you mean the body armorless way?
<ChocoCid> v - a fizzy potion named Coca-Cola
<Grunt> Your pack shakes violently! Your fizzy potion named Coca-Cola explodes!
<sawtooth> You drink the fizzy potion named Coca-Cola. You have a bad case of stomach acid!
<ChocoCid> "The Coca-Cola explodes out of your pack! Its fizz sounds like, 'daddy?'"
<SomeoneElseYes> I'm still wondering: HOW do you look throgh greased lenses?
<jmr> astral vision
<shel-> astral vision is used
<shel-> after earth vision, air vision, fire vision, and water vision were deemed failures.
<shel-> not to mention heart vision.
Stevie-O: there have been, like, 3 or 4 potion shops in this game
Dentarthurdent_: Party at Stevie-O's dungeon! Where's the chicks?
***BenUrban forgets which ones are chicks
Dentarthurdent_: they're such teases though
Dentarthurdent_: i'm a & fan
BenUrban: yeah & kicks ass
BenUrban: especially while you're wielding excalibur or the staff
Dentarthurdent_: fun time, but when they dump you they sure dump you hard
BenUrban: Dentarthurdent_: not if you are wielding excalibur or the staff
Dentarthurdent_: yeah, & like it when you have a big sword/staff :P
< tweek__> anyone mind checking out Jove's game and telling me how the heck he manages to kill Pestilence?
< Jove_> tweek__: Halitosis.
< datachomper> I assume my knowledge of how to play nethack will never land me a chick in a bar
< C0rVus> datachomper, oddly enough it got me laid once back in '96
< Hacken> walk up to her and say, "Pound chat."
<Rodney> yhelothar3 (Bar Hum Mal Cha), 1148 points, quit
<GreyKnight> yhelothar is quitting again >:-(
<yhelothar> what do you mean again
<yhelothar> i accidentally #prayed when i meant #offer
<yhelothar> messed up the game
<yhelothar> good question
<yhelothar> you just hit me square in the heart with a reflective soul-searching question
<yhelothar> because it's easier to just reroll
<GreyKnight> Absent fouling up the Quest, every game is ascendable
<GreyKnight> (Well, you can get yourself into certain doom with no means of escape too, but in that case it's better to let nature take its course)
<yhelothar> not if you're cornered by an angry archon with nothing but a pair of kicking boots it isn't
<yhelothar> that archon really fucked up my day
<ChrisS67> you mean, the Archon that you wished for?
<ChrisS67> that Archon?
<GreyKnight> Well, good luck figuring out the statistics of which sort of situation kills you the most, if all records just read "quit"
<yhelothar> i don't quit that much
<yhelothar> where you gettin' that anyway
<ChrisS67> !gamesby yhelothar
<Rodney> yhelothar has played 326 games, between 20081127 and 20111102, highest score 444917, died 249, quit 23, escaped 54 times
<yhelothar> !gamesby yhelothar2
<Rodney> yhelothar2 has played 120 games, between 20121014 and 20121019, highest score 259439, died 46, lifesaved 2, quit 73, escaped 1 times
<yhelothar> !gamesby yhelothar3
<Rodney> yhelothar3 has played 42 games, between 20121021 and 20121022, highest score 19948, died 37, lifesaved 1, quit 5 times
<yhelothar> !gamesby yhelothar4
<Rodney> yhelothar4 has played 3 games, on 20121021, highest score 1777, died 1, quit 2 times
<yhelothar> see my record ain't so bad
<ChrisS67> hmm this doesn't look good
<GreyKnight> ...you've quit over a hundred times and it "ain't so bad"?
<yhelothar> in my defense, most of those quits were when i rolled a wizard and didn't get a spellbook of identify
<yhelothar> ain't so f-in way i'm playing wizard without my identify
<ChrisS67> not much of a defense
<GreyKnight> Startscumming is a "defense" now
<yhelothar> yea i've been playing on and off since 2002
<yhelothar> never got around to ascending but i've read all the spoilers
<wrabbit_> 'never got around'
<GreyKnight> No time like the present
<yhelothar> i could if i wanted to >:O
<GreyKnight> Don't let us hold you back
<yhelothar> back in '04 i had a valkyrie that was on its way up from the sanctum and my comp crashed
<yhelothar> it was a local game and wasn't recovered
<stenno> local wouldn't have counted anyway
<yhelothar> that was my first time at near-ascending and i was so scarred that i didn't play for another 7 years
<yhelothar> also i didn't use elbereth
<yhelothar> because i thought elbereth was cheap
<yhelothar> i protection racketed tho
<yhelothar> which is kinda cheap i guess
<stenno> admit it, you pudding-farmed and got bored with it
<yhelothar> i am pretty bored with nethack
<yhelothar> my last wish was the blessed rustproof +2 Tsurugi of Muramasa
<yhelothar> i like watching more than playing
<stenno> a bad wish
<stenno> fair enough
<Malpercio> I like both
<Malpercio> but I don't tend to watch people I don't even know.
<stenno> i like playing, watching only in exceptional cases
<yhelothar> i also wished for a statue of Master Kaen once and tried to die by kicking it
<GreyKnight> I like making terrible puns and writing bits of code
<stenno> i like turtles
<yhelothar> code in what?
<GreyKnight> A computer usually
<Rodney> Wonderin (Wiz Hum Mal Cha), 553 points, killed by a little dog

<dtype> heh, i just had someone email me and tell me they were the owner of alt.org
<dtype> apparently some registrar did some lying about which domains were free
<dtype> fwiw, alt.org is not for sale. ;)
<dtype> hi all
<greycat> hey dtype. so, no 3.4.2 yet...
<dtype> i ended up at a party in san fransicso last night
<dtype> i'm staying in tonight though, so hopefully today...
<greycat> how dare you have a social life!! ;)
<paxed> greycat: is this a case of "As I don't have, others shouldn't have either" ? ;-P
<greycat> something like that
<tarzeau> throwing mjollnir is cool
<_Q> except there's a small chance it won't come back
<_Q> if you're a valk
<_Q> (if you're not a valk, there's a 100% chance it won't come back :)
< hiJacker> NE know were i can get a free shell 4 a bot! plz help
< TSC> Try Minetown
< hiJacker> c'mon stop playin
< Sebbe> ...but I'm addicted
< Zealot> We can't. Nethack is a very addictive game.
< TSC> We can't
< Zealot> I won't stop 'til I've ascended, myself.
< blindcoder> still need to add some quests
* blindcoder dl'ing the nethack source
< blindcoder> but first I'm working on the chest thing
< Violist> big chest please
< Violist> 'n' size
< Violist> maybe even '&'
< jilles> nethack kittens are definitely more powerful than real-life ones
< TauPan> real-life kittens have gaze of cuteness
< Violist> makes them near-invincible
< Violist> prrr
< TauPan> The kitten attacks you with its adorable gaze. You turn into a wimp.
<Rodney> nailbunny (Wiz Hum Mal Neu), 6879 points, killed by a winter wolf, while helpless
<nailbunny> note to self: sleep rays bounce
<kroisis> several years ago I had a char that killed 3 shopkeepers...his luck was attrocious after that...EVERYBODY hated him...he was in such dire straits a succubus wouldn't give him the time of day...he was in such dire straits, nymphs kept attacking him by giving him cursed stuff he was in such dire strait vampires didn't even want his blood....he was in such dire straits Jubilex looked at him and said to a nearby trapper "you eat that? Y
<kroisis> our're CRAZY man!"
<skacer> all this time i thought the rock mole and the rock piercer were the same exact thing
<StoneCypher> they are, for about five letters
Laptrop: is it me or do giants take FOREVER to eat anything?
lament: it's very difficult to use a fork when you can barely see it
Laptrop: I guess
<art> What the hell are you doing at the castle at level 5?

<art> You know those eels can drown you, right?
<zid> dead is me
