DesertRose8/20/2018, 7:27:01 PM
How did you do that?

bynw8/20/2018, 7:38:52 PM
that script, needed to be tweeked a bit

bynw8/20/2018, 7:39:37 PM
but there isnt a way to do it by any specific date

Goatmistress8/20/2018, 7:39:56 PM
Good evening

hi @Goatmistress

Goatmistress8/20/2018, 7:46:16 PM
I wonder if I can get Rainsong to come over here.  I'm not sure how to invite from chat to another.

Goatmistress8/20/2018, 7:47:13 PM
She knows you, of course.

DesertRose8/20/2018, 7:51:02 PM
Well crud

bynw8/20/2018, 7:54:06 PM
it wasnt rainsong that actually does it

Goatmistress8/20/2018, 7:56:01 PM

bynw8/20/2018, 7:57:24 PM
shadowrain does it and i've got a private message going about it

Goatmistress8/20/2018, 7:57:58 PM
shadowrain was who gave me the script link last night

bynw8/20/2018, 8:04:11 PM
its workable but not flawless

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:07:33 PM
How much editing did you have to do, @bynw?

bynw8/20/2018, 8:08:53 PM
i didnt do any on that test post but some things to note are the date touches the names

bynw8/20/2018, 8:09:26 PM
and it was the complete log of this chat not just any specific time frame

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:13:56 PM

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:14:08 PM
You would really think that Discord would have an actual logging function.

bynw8/20/2018, 8:16:52 PM
yeah it is frustrating beyond words that something as simple as logging doesnt exist

bynw8/20/2018, 8:18:31 PM
this is a fun little diversion but i think IRC is going to be the main focus still

bynw8/20/2018, 8:19:33 PM
we might use this for some things but not everything

bynw8/20/2018, 8:24:08 PM
now we could do it if we destroyed the channel after every use ... but that is way too much work

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:27:51 PM
Yeah, no.  That's a pain.

middle school .... such silly name never went to "middle school"

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:34:36 PM
She's a nice person, and she's been through a lot in recent months, but I really did not expect my message about not being able to get to Tennessee for her and her husband's renewal of wedding vows in October was going to open the floodgates.

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:34:48 PM
Yeah, junior high was a thing when I was a kid, but not in my school district.

bynw8/20/2018, 8:35:23 PM
most of the time now days middle school starts with 6th graders and goes through 9th graders in some places

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:36:13 PM
No, not generally.

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:36:45 PM
Where I went to middle and high school, elementary was K-4th, middle was 5th-8th, and high was 9th-12th.

no no no

bynw8/20/2018, 8:37:07 PM

bynw8/20/2018, 8:37:15 PM
7-8 is junior high

bynw8/20/2018, 8:37:15 PM
7-8 is junior high

bynw8/20/2018, 8:37:20 PM
9-12 is high school

DesertRose8/20/2018, 8:37:47 PM
I think for my brothers, elementary was K-5, junior high was 6-9, and high was 10-12.

The Legends of Camber of Culdi / Re: Wow!!
« Last post by Lochiel on Today at 08:09:01 pm »
Enjoy as the Camber series and the Heirs series are my 2 favorites (Javan's Year is my all time fav Book).  I would take DR's advice and not read to much of this forum until you finish. Salutations my friend!
The Childe Morgan / Re: Brion's Haldane Empowerment
« Last post by Lochiel on Today at 07:25:03 pm »
I want to thank everyone for their contribution to my question. IMO I tend to agree with Laurna's thinking on that. I believe the Cynfyns have played a large role in assisting the Haldane's clandestinely
in arcane matters, and remaining outside the influence of the CC.   Can't wait for the new book.

DesertRose8/17/2018, 7:32:36 PM
I'll probably start keeping a browser tab open for Discord, so I may be here more than I generally show up on IRC.

DesertRose8/17/2018, 7:33:17 PM

She may not be awake yet.  Saturday is pretty much the only day of the week she can sleep until she damn well feels like getting out of bed.

A lot of the emojis in Discord are the same (not necessarily visually, but same concept) as in Quip.

Evie8/18/2018, 5:57:24 PM
BTW, I'm considering making the Ken up there into a mini -Morgan, since I ruined original Morgan's hair during his head swap

DesertRose8/18/2018, 5:57:24 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 5:57:43 PM
Which Morgan?  Alaric or the 21st C. Haldane?

DesertRose8/18/2018, 5:58:55 PM

Evie8/18/2018, 5:59:33 PM
A big patch of original Alaric's hair melted or got frizzy when I used Vicki 's hair drier for the head swap. Hers runs hotter than mine.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 5:59:49 PM
One of my new SCA friends (new to the area, not to the SCA) just shared with me the recipes she made for supper tonight.  Slow cooker Cuban pork with cilantro-lime rice and Cuban black beans.  Nom!

DesertRose8/18/2018, 5:59:52 PM

Evie8/18/2018, 6:00:13 PM
And he was a 90s model Ken, so expensive to replace

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:00:18 PM

Evie8/18/2018, 6:00:25 PM
Yum, sounds good

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:01:13 PM
It looks good, too.  She shared pics on Facebook, which was what provoked me to comment "Yum" and then ask if she were willing to share the recipes.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:01:24 PM
I had this one just sitting around because his body doesn't sit well, but I'm thinking I could just use the head on Alaric's action figure body

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:01:25 PM
They're in the Google Drive folder of Recipes.

Sausage and cabbage?  I'm not sure I've ever heard of that as a combination.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:02:51 PM
Although it sounds German or German-adjacent, LOL.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:02:57 PM
Italian sausage

Evie8/18/2018, 6:03:13 PM
Which the cabbage absorbs flavor from

Evie8/18/2018, 6:03:47 PM
Often he'll toss carrots and potatoes in also

Evie8/18/2018, 6:03:51 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:03:53 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:04:13 PM
Carrots and potatoes are always good.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:04:33 PM
My ginger female cat, Tessa, would eat the carrots that had cooked in the broth from pot roast.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:04:52 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:05:11 PM
Raw carrots were the only food I ever saw her refuse to eat.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:05:29 PM
And she did go sniff the bit of raw carrot that fell off the counter while I was slicing them for something, LOL.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:07:54 PM
There is a desktop app, but I've had issues with it (although that may owe more to the age of my computer than to the app itself).

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:30:30 PM

Evie8/18/2018, 6:31:36 PM
That reminds me, though, I saw a Quota post from a historian talking about castles that show evidence of indoor plumbing, and that the Black Prince evidently had hot and cold running water from separate tanks, so she felt it was reasonable to suppose others might have also, at least among the royal family.

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:32:16 PM
They are simply soft soaps, are they not? We had soaps.Granted, not generally so fine.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:32:30 PM
The Romans had aqueducts and a sewage system, and the Islamic world had plumbing, so it's not entirely unreasonable to assume that the nobility/royalty might have such things, especially in a post-Crusades Europe.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:32:52 PM
Mostly, yes, Your Grace.

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:35:48 PM

Evie8/18/2018, 6:36:01 PM
that's a game control

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:36:24 PM
I thought a game control was two hands and a dice cup?

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:36:34 PM
Green means that that person is online and active., gold means they're online but not active at the moment (but I'm not sure why Your Grace's is gold since you are actively talking), and if it were gray, it would mean you were not logged into the chat application.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:37:10 PM
He's not active because he's been dead nearly a millennium

I'm pretty spry for a dead guy, I'd say.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:37:30 PM

bynw8/18/2018, 6:41:35 PM
now we need some regular user person for their thoughts on this thing

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:42:14 PM
I am much amused, since the other night when I was messing with my old T-tunic I'm trying to turn into a workable pattern for a qamis, I had to fight that damn Carys for my stitch gauge.  I was literally chasing that silly cat around, while she held a little metal 6-inch-long ruler and played Keep Away with it and me.

I would invite Alaric, but I don't know if he counts as a regular person for your purposes

bynw8/18/2018, 6:44:24 PM
regular user = non forum or chat admin

Evie8/18/2018, 6:44:55 PM
Luke is here, but he lacks thumbs

Evie8/18/2018, 6:45:14 PM
And human vocabulary. And sense.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:45:41 PM
If it weren't Stupid O'Clock UK time, I'd try to talk Revanne and/or Demercia into trying it, but seeing as it's 12:45 am there, I doubt either of them is awake.

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:45:53 PM
Maybe tomorrow?

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:46:09 PM
Yes, I'll try tomorrow with our twin priests.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:46:48 PM
Do regular ORC Cubans like /quit work here?

Evie8/18/2018, 6:47:00 PM
IRC commands!

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:47:05 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:47:24 PM

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:47:35 PM
_pictures a gang of Orcs with Cuban accents_

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:47:39 PM
That is particularly funny in light of the Cuban recipes I mentioned earlier.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:47:49 PM
It could happen, in Shadowrun.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:48:21 PM
Hm, looks like Duncan answered that question, at least for the /me command

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:48:23 PM
I played a Chicana/Hopi shaman in Kagi's Shadowrun games, years ago.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:48:47 PM
Mostly so I could swear in Spanish, LOL.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:48:52 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:49:12 PM
There are some truly interesting NSFW idioms in Spanish.

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:50:07 PM
Probably not safe for my work, anyway, unless I want to raise Cardiel's eyebrows all the way to his retreating hairline.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:50:53 PM
I assume so, Your Grace, and not safe for a fair number of workplaces, although, in my experience, not food-service as long as no customers were near enough to witness.  😛

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:51:08 PM
All right, I'm leaving Her Grace waiting. I should go.  Evie can have the laptop back, if she can work out how to use the browser app.

Evie8/18/2018, 6:51:15 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:51:22 PM
Good evening, Your Grace.  Rest well.  😃

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:51:43 PM
Have a good evening also.

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:51:50 PM

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:51:56 PM
And that didn't work.

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:52:29 PM
Is there a log out link?

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:52:45 PM
Probably you need to log out.  Down in the lower left corner of your screen, there should be a little rectangle with your icon, username, and a couple of icons, including a small gear.  Click on the gear, and it should give you an option to log out.

Duncan8/18/2018, 6:53:04 PM
Ah.  I'll try that. Goodnight.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 6:53:11 PM

bynw8/18/2018, 7:14:19 PM
ah so those fighters all get the cookies

bynw8/18/2018, 7:14:58 PM
good thing the SCA is for how it should have been or could have been otherwise some charming lass wouldnt be coming along with cookies

bynw8/18/2018, 7:15:01 PM
wb Evie

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:17:27 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:17:46 PM
Probably not those specific cookies, no, but there were small sweet pastries in period.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:18:21 PM
The word "cookie" comes from a Dutch word meaning "little cake," and the Dutch word at least is old enough to have referred to a small sweet baked good in the Middle Ages/Renaissance.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:19:13 PM
nope going to disbelieve that statement

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:19:17 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:20:37 PM
Okay, you're actually right, about the etymology.  The Dutch word didn't become a loanword into English until colonial-US times.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:21:01 PM
But the concept is apparently Persian, from the 7th C. CE, so I'm thinking that something similar existed, if not called specifically a cookie.  😄

Evie8/18/2018, 7:22:15 PM
W EIRD! Just checked Duncan's email inbox, and he has a bunch of mail from a newsletter called Alabama Pioneers that he allegedly subscribes to.

Evie8/18/2018, 7:22:36 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:22:53 PM
That's odd.

Evie8/18/2018, 7:23:14 PM
I was pretty flabbergasted!  LOL

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:23:25 PM
I bet!

Evie8/18/2018, 7:24:30 PM
I wonder if there is someone with a similar address who typed it wrong when they subscribed, but I can see that happening if the end was, not!

bynw8/18/2018, 7:24:54 PM
yeah that doesnt make sense. you cant get wrong

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:25:09 PM

Evie8/18/2018, 7:26:03 PM
I can't imagine anything i would have even done or looked up to accidentally subscribe Duncan to a newsletter

Evie8/18/2018, 7:26:29 PM
It's magic. LOL

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:26:30 PM
That also seems weirdly specific for spam.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:26:47 PM
in the oddities note ... i was watching a video on youtube and it seems that the space station Babylon 5 (from the TV show of the same name) comes online on my birthday in 2256

Hi @derynifank  welcome

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:30:03 PM
At least it doesn't change my words like the regular chat does

bynw8/18/2018, 7:30:25 PM
that would be autocorrect on a tablet not the chat itself

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:30:27 PM
That might be more a function of auto-correct on the device, @derynifank

bynw8/18/2018, 7:30:48 PM
silly auto correct isnt very correct most of the time

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:30:59 PM
Well I decided that auto correct hates me. I think it's possessed

bynw8/18/2018, 7:31:41 PM
i should really charge my tablet up again, it's dead again because i always forget to charge it since i use the desktop or laptop more than anything else for the internet

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:31:49 PM
One of my friends refers to it as "auto-corrupt."

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:32:05 PM
I agree with your friend DR

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:32:20 PM
Which would be even funnier coming from someone less inclined to strong language than this specific person.  😛

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:33:18 PM
Although it's pretty amusing as is.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:33:25 PM
@derynifank if you are on your laptop still .... there is a little gear like icon on the lower left of the screen near where the input chat bar is located. it should say your nick there too. if you click on that gear it will pull up your profile where you can change your avatar from the default one to something you want to use insteade

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:34:24 PM
My profile pic is a selfie I took on 4 May 2017, wearing glitter on my face on Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you 😉 ) in memory of Carrie Fisher.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:35:13 PM
mine is selfie too 😃

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:35:23 PM

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:38:28 PM
Think I did something wrong, as usual. Clicked on it but didn't see where to change the avatar

bynw8/18/2018, 7:40:09 PM
when the profile page pops up there is just that yellow circle you can click on it to change your pic

bynw8/18/2018, 7:40:27 PM
you will have to hit edit first at the top right

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:42:10 PM
Click on the little gear that should be to the right of the icon itself.

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:42:30 PM
Well I changed the pic but it's sideways. How do I fix that

bynw8/18/2018, 7:43:36 PM
you would have to edit the picture on the computer first it must have been taken that way, PCs will sometimes auto rotate for viewing but dont change the actual file. you would need some photo editing software

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:44:20 PM
GIMP is a good free one.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:44:33 PM
of course it is  @DesertRose

I looked at the pic on the computer and it is not rotated. I do think it is easy chatting this way. I like it

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:47:13 PM
GIMP has so many options that it can be overwhelming.  What operating system are you using, @derynifank ?

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:47:17 PM
Wow. Hope it didn't do any damage. I love Enya

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:47:35 PM
Windows 10

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:47:37 PM
(Because Paint, as much maligned as it is, will do simple things like reorient a photo.)

bynw8/18/2018, 7:48:19 PM
paint might do it but i dont use windows enough to notice

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:48:19 PM
Try opening the photo in Paint, then, and then ask it to rotate the image 90 degrees clockwise, save it with a slightly different file name if you want to preserve the original image, and then try using the rotated image as your profile pic.

It's been a while since I ran Windows.

derynifank8/18/2018, 7:52:08 PM
What op system do you use

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:52:12 PM
Linux Mint

bynw8/18/2018, 7:52:17 PM
ubuntu linux

bynw8/18/2018, 7:52:51 PM
i only use windows at work and that is still window 7

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:52:56 PM
Ubuntu got too big for its britches (or at least, my seven-year-old hard drive), so that's why Mint for me.  Takes up less space.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:53:24 PM
Linux Mint is part of the Ubuntu family since it's based off Ubuntu

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:53:26 PM
bynw, do you remember which version of Windows would give you the dialog box about "Attempting to [Do Whatever Task]"?

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:53:32 PM

This is why I'm asking about the version of Windows.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:54:27 PM
I think all that junk started with Vista which was after XP but before 7 ... it was the crappy 7

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:54:53 PM
I was thinking it was longer ago than Vista, but maybe I'm mistaken.

bynw8/18/2018, 7:54:55 PM
or it might have been something a lot earlier given that box

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:55:24 PM
You might have to open that image to see the whole gif play through, but it's amusing.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:56:07 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 7:56:38 PM

I didn't figure it was a tattoo.  😃

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:13:25 PM
Although that would make a cool tat.

bynw8/18/2018, 8:13:29 PM
not a permanent one

bynw8/18/2018, 8:13:44 PM
that would be too painful

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:13:52 PM
Also expensive and time-consuming.

bynw8/18/2018, 8:14:16 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:14:20 PM
Back pieces that cover most of the person's back are neither cheap nor quick.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:15:07 PM
A local friend of mine has the Comedy/Tragedy masks on her back, with the "ribbon" being the sheet music for a song she likes, but I'm having trouble remembering which one at the moment.

bynw8/18/2018, 8:15:26 PM
thats neat

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:15:30 PM
It is.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:16:16 PM
It's a gorgeous piece of artwork, and the artist who tattooed it onto her passed away a few years ago, so it's also special for his memory.  (He was a close friend of her husband, and he roomed with her husband before they got married and then with both of them until his death.)

I'm probably heading for bed soonish.

Evie8/18/2018, 8:50:43 PM
DR, here's the cabbage and sausage recipe I'm somewhat following, though I made lots of changes.

Evie8/18/2018, 8:51:45 PM
The most important being using Greek seasoning instead of Cajun (Or was it Creole?), which I don't have.

Evie8/18/2018, 8:52:02 PM
And also added basil

Evie8/18/2018, 8:52:38 PM
And I'm using a frozen onion and bell pepper mix instead of fresh.

Evie8/18/2018, 8:53:01 PM
I think the rest is mostly the same. Maybe. LOL

Evie8/18/2018, 8:53:50 PM
Gigi is fascinated by the smell of spices on my hand

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:54:33 PM

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:54:59 PM
It looks like a recipe one of my friends from middle school recently posted to her Facebook.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:55:38 PM
I can't really do sausage any more though; my stomach rebels at the mere thought.  The closest I can get is eating red beans and rice, which is usually made with andouille sausage, as long as I eat around the sausage itself.

DesertRose8/18/2018, 8:55:55 PM
I miss my biscuits and gravy.  😦

Evie8/18/2018, 9:19:28 PM
Does turkey sausage also upset your tummy? That's what I used.

Evie8/18/2018, 9:21:12 PM
Basically this sort:

Evie8/18/2018, 9:22:15 PM
I chopped it up into little disk-shaped pieces.

bynw8/18/2018, 9:22:38 PM
Hi Evie

Evie8/18/2018, 9:25:00 PM

Evie8/18/2018, 9:27:19 PM
What I like about this is that I'm not a cabbage fan at all, but this absorbs so much of the sausage and other flavors that I don't really taste the cabbage. The cabbage just ends up being the bulk that makes this really filling

Evie8/18/2018, 9:34:52 PM
My MIL usually makes something similar, but in her version the cabbage is cooked all to Hell and gone. In this version, it's cooked to the point that it's tender enough to eat but still has a slight crunch left

Evie8/18/2018, 9:35:41 PM
Which may be another reason I prefer this recipe. I'm not a big fan of overcooked veggies in general.

bynw8/18/2018, 9:37:10 PM
to answer your earlier question in the #479827429658066946 channel. no i havent done anything with the voice yet. maybe try it tomorrow if someone wants to help with it.

Laurna8/19/2018, 10:21:57 AM
How did the others go offline.  do you put yourself offline. or does it go offline after some much time has elasped without chatting

bynw8/19/2018, 10:22:22 AM
they signed out, just as you where signed out earlier

bynw8/19/2018, 10:23:07 AM
if you close the browser tab or window or actually log out through your profile options you will show as offline

I didn't sign out I just walked away.  How do you sign out. without turing it off.

Or a trebuchet

DesertRose8/19/2018, 11:01:58 AM
Or better yet, a mangonel.

DesertRose8/19/2018, 11:02:46 AM
That way we could throw a whole, adult sturgeon.  😉

Laurna8/19/2018, 11:04:23 AM
good luck finding an emoji  or an image for that

DesertRose8/19/2018, 11:11:21 AM
Emoji, probably not.

DesertRose8/19/2018, 11:11:55 AM
Image:  Think of a REALLY FREAKING BIG catapult.  Mangonels could throw some seriously heavy projectiles.

bynw8/19/2018, 11:11:55 AM
image might be a bit difficult too

DesertRose8/19/2018, 11:12:13 AM
I was trying to find an image with the scale/dimensions of the dratted thing.

DesertRose8/19/2018, 11:12:31 AM
But it's basically a really large catapult.

bynw8/19/2018, 11:15:27 AM
@Laurna which of the players have given you NPCs for the ruins attack?

bynw8/19/2018, 11:15:40 AM
or are they all non players?

Laurna8/19/2018, 11:18:04 AM
Actually all the NPC' are players. The only non play is mine and that is Uncle John.  I am not telling who is who though. that his half the fun. so 7 NPC's left and 7 different people rolling for them.

Laurna8/19/2018, 11:18:50 AM
I am waiting for just one more person to give me their roll and then we shall see what happens

bynw8/19/2018, 11:22:42 AM
let me rephrase that question. Did Evie, Jerusha, or revanna give you dice rolls for any of those NPCs in this part of the game. I dont need to know which NPCs. Just a Yes or no for each of those ladies

So is this a separate chat room from the one we can get to via Mibbit, Kiwi, etc., or is it the same one?

Evie8/19/2018, 5:42:45 PM
And if the same, can this client log chats?

bynw8/19/2018, 5:46:40 PM
it is completely separate and not related other than having the same name. at some point in time, if i can manage it ... i could get a bridge between the 2 locations. but right now this is totally separate and using a different protocol and service

this might be all for naught if there is no logs

Evie8/19/2018, 6:19:03 PM
I hope there's a way to log. I really like this so far.

bynw8/19/2018, 6:19:38 PM
i havent looked at the deskop clients do you see anything for logging text channels in that?

bynw8/19/2018, 6:54:33 PM
so far it looks like the only way to have chat logs is with a bot. but so many of them are bloated with other features that are useless

DesertRose8/19/2018, 7:30:47 PM
I don't.  😦

bynw8/19/2018, 7:45:15 PM
yeah i've done a lot of searches and all i can find is references to the API and using bots but so many bots have bloat on them

this may not be a good solution

Don't know.

DesertRose8/19/2018, 8:39:20 PM
We have yet to find a logging feature.  That doesn't mean there isn't one, but if there isn't, Discord isn't a good option.

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 8:43:01 PM
A friiend who is an admin on another chat tat moved here from the IRC server says you get logs with something called stalk

hmmm i'll check into that

Here's another one

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 8:46:39 PM
This works decently, it's what I use

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 8:48:06 PM

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 8:48:33 PM
and that was a copy/paste.  I don't use anything to do logs, but the person who shared it with me does

bynw8/19/2018, 8:50:26 PM
see if you can get that link to stalk so i can see more on it

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 8:50:59 PM
Funny thing, they've been over here like for a while, but I didn't know about it till a couple weeks ago.  Rain was like "Raven wants to know why you won't join the discord group", and I was like "what discord group??"

bynw8/19/2018, 8:51:57 PM
i was just going through our channels the other day on IRC and noticed theirs were unregistered

bynw8/19/2018, 8:52:16 PM
but their website still says OtherWorlders is their chat home

That is probably why.  I miss it being on IRC, but they're here and not going anywhere, so . . .

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 8:53:59 PM
Rain seems to be afk or maybe gone for the night now.  but if I can get her, I'll get stalk info

bynw8/19/2018, 8:56:17 PM
i just joined their server

bynw8/19/2018, 8:56:44 PM
looks like the PSC spun off from the guild and took off on its own

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 9:02:15 PM
from psion guild?  like 10 years ago maybe

bynw8/19/2018, 9:03:25 PM
that is why psion guild even though its channel is unregistered as well , still shows otherworlders irc as its chat home but PSC isnt

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 9:03:56 PM
yes, they've been independent ever since PSC was created

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 9:04:54 PM
at the beginning, psion guild thought psc was a rival, but then they got along.  but always inderpenddent of each other

bynw8/19/2018, 9:09:47 PM
that discord history tracker is OK but not really usable

bynw8/19/2018, 9:11:14 PM
there are good logs on the PSC website though

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 9:29:46 PM
Next time I see Rain, I'll get more info for you.  I'm on here several evenings during the week usually.

bynw8/19/2018, 9:39:50 PM
i leave myself signed in to Discord and IRC too

bynw8/19/2018, 9:40:14 PM
i'm usually on IRC on my desktop and laptop hence the 2 nicks and discord on everything

Goatmistress8/19/2018, 9:52:35 PM
I don't stay signed into anything, not even Facebook.  I'll stay logged in if I go to the store, but if I leave for the day or go to bed, I log out of everything.

bynw8/19/2018, 9:54:39 PM
most of my 3 computers are on 24/7

bynw8/19/2018, 9:54:51 PM
not counting my phone which is also a computer

Sent Gilreth an invitation code for Discord, since he mentioned in the thread that he is an experienced Discord user.

logging isnt available without a bot or some kind of script so i'm checking on those options

DesertRose8/20/2018, 12:08:55 PM
Well phooey

gilreth8/20/2018, 1:35:29 PM
Thanks for invite - I am a 'she' BTW .....

gilreth8/20/2018, 1:35:51 PM
You will find me logged in a lot as I also use this for gaming and talking to friends.

DesertRose8/20/2018, 1:38:36 PM
Oh, oops!  Sorry!

DesertRose8/20/2018, 3:27:43 PM
I think my brain went to Gilrae d' Eirial from the story "Vocation."

bynw8/20/2018, 4:31:09 PM
its incredible that no one has created a simple logging method on Discord

DesertRose8/20/2018, 4:37:18 PM
Yeah, that is weird.

bynw8/20/2018, 4:38:02 PM
the only thing i have found so far itsnt that friendly to use

bynw8/20/2018, 4:39:35 PM
it would require massive manual edits to make it readable and post worthy

DesertRose8/20/2018, 4:48:00 PM

bynw8/20/2018, 5:02:06 PM
there i will post to Facebook about it too. maybe someone there knows more than Discord does

bynw8/20/2018, 5:02:24 PM
but if that's the case and there is no logging . this is a moot point

DesertRose8/20/2018, 5:03:47 PM

bynw8/20/2018, 5:58:18 PM
well that script that Ghostmistress's other Discord chat uses (and a past channel of OtherWorlders) would require a lot of manual copy, paste, edit before posting it to the forums or anywhere else for that matter.

DesertRose8/20/2018, 6:10:59 PM
I love the new head!  The hair looks SO much better.  Much better suited as the dashing Duke of Corwyn!
His Grace looks very good with his new head.

Pretty experienced Discord user here is that is any use?
Your right, Alaric has the more chiseled chin and jaw. Like a warrior should.
I like the new Alaric very much and the "eye shadow" looks like deep set eyes in the picture you show here.
Actually, Alaric (the new version) and Duncan have very different face shapes in addition to their hair styles being different. Duncan's features (like most Kens) are less angular. That was one of the things I liked about the Harley Ken headsculpt, actually. It's so different from the other Ken headsculpts I have that it stands out in the crowd.

Here's a shot of Duncan for comparison:

Awww, doesn't he look like he'd make a great "Uncle Duncan"?   ;D
Alaric looks great, Evie!  I was afraid he was going to look too much like Duncan. I mean identical twins.  Although now I see Alaric properly dressed in Duke of Corwyn attire I don't see Duncan anymore, I see Alaric.  Good Job!
