Corey and I were discussing old-school adventure games tonight. That reminds me, I really should get You Don't Know Jack
sometime since I have stuff like Carmen Sandiego
/ Number Munchers
/ Cross Country Canada
/ Oregon Trail
[22:39:10] AlenaBrolxFlami: I'm playing MOTAS again
[22:40:37] mrptptpt: Masters Of Tits / Ass Squeezing?
[22:41:49] AlenaBrolxFlami: no :P
[22:42:05] AlenaBrolxFlami: MOTAS
[22:42:57] mrptptpt: oh yeah, that :P
[22:47:11] AlenaBrolxFlami: so have you played?
[22:47:28] mrptptpt: the first time you sent me to that
[22:47:42] AlenaBrolxFlami: I bet you finished it too
[22:52:30] mrptptpt: nope, it's boring because there isn't a storyline, just room after room :P play some adventure games... same type of gameplay, plus a storyline and much much much more entertainment value :P
[22:55:32] AlenaBrolxFlami: wish I could
[22:56:19] mrptptpt: why can't you? :P
[23:00:02] AlenaBrolxFlami: because they're elusive beasts
[23:01:20] mrptptpt: hey, I know this guy that has tons of them
[23:05:42] mrptptpt: and bittorrent sites have lots of others :P
[23:08:18] AlenaBrolxFlami: so who exactly has tons of them? :P
[23:09:53] mrptptpt: uh, me?
[23:15:29] AlenaBrolxFlami: I thought you were talking about yourself there :P
[23:17:49] mrptptpt: darn tootin'
[23:22:03] AlenaBrolxFlami: I was going to say that searching Google for "adventure games" gives me a lot of muck :P
[23:24:01] mrptptpt: search TORRENT sites :P
[23:24:04] mrptptpt: then you can download them
[23:24:17] mrptptpt: Isohunt
and BT Junkie
[23:30:22] AlenaBrolxFlami: yeah, but what games are okay?
[23:32:14] mrptptpt: look for scummVM
[23:33:15] mrptptpt: if you can download a huge torrent of all those games... that would be nice :P that'd be Sam & Max
, Indiana Jones & The Fate of Atlantis
, Day of the Tentacle
, Full Throttle
... Monkey Island
, I think...
[23:33:30] mrptptpt: ScummVM is just a program that makes them run nicely on modern computers :P
[23:34:14] mrptptpt: here
[23:34:38] mrptptpt: 4th one down is gigantic.. 5.13 gigs :P that probably has all of the above, plus a lot of other stuff :P
[23:35:26] mrptptpt: yeah, that's like every version of every game ScummVM supports :P
[23:35:50] AlenaBrolxFlami: can I even HANDLE 5.13 gigs?! o_O
[23:36:09] mrptptpt: I'm going to download that, actually.. there's a few in there I don't have. I have legal copies of everything I listed above though, actually :P
[23:36:25] mrptptpt: do you have 5 gigs of space? I'm pretty sure that you do :P
[23:36:29] mrptptpt: if so, then of course you can
[23:36:53] mrptptpt: if you leave your computer on all day, and it seems like you do... just let it download in the background for a few days, and you'll have it :P
[23:37:41] mrptptpt: you can always burn the games to CD / DVD (don't think you have a DVD burner though, right? :P) if you need the hard drive space
[23:37:52] mrptptpt: I'm pretty sure you're not even using most of your hard drive, though
[23:39:42] mrptptpt: okay, I'm downloading that as we speak :P
[23:51:27] AlenaBrolxFlami: I don't have one, no... I'm pretty sure Nate and Eric do, which won't help me :P
[23:51:50] AlenaBrolxFlami: sounds good... but what happens if I need to restart the computer at some point when the download's not finished yet?
[23:52:20] mrptptpt: doesn't matter
[23:52:40] mrptptpt: it picks up where it left off :P
[23:53:08] mrptptpt: it doesn't even send you anything sequentially.... you just get random bits of the file from the various other people that have it
[23:53:14] mrptptpt: eventually, you have the whole thing
[23:54:38] AlenaBrolxFlami: so if I start the download and I need to restart, it'll automatically restart the download from wherever? :P
[23:59:36] mrptptpt: if you use a torrent program like Azureus... yeah. when you start it, it checks all your active downloads, sees what you already have, and then starts asking people for parts you don't have :P
[00:03:03] mrptptpt: I'm downloading it, so you'll be getting it at least partially from me :P
[00:03:08] AlenaBrolxFlami: well, I have that somewhere, so I started it up... what now?
[00:03:16] mrptptpt: you have Azureus?
[00:03:45] AlenaBrolxFlami: uh, yeah
[00:05:18] mrptptpt: so just click the download torrent link on that site I linked you to :P
[00:05:43] mrptptpt: click the title and it'll expand and show detailed information.. big DOWNLOAD TORRENT link at the top of that :P
[00:10:14] AlenaBrolxFlami: I'm going to click OK unless you say not to!!!!!!
[00:10:46] mrptptpt: sure
[00:12:34] AlenaBrolxFlami: oh dear... where should I save this to?
[00:14:31] mrptptpt: the .torrent file from the website? don't save it, open it with Azureus :P
[00:14:53] mrptptpt: the actual stuff... I just made a folder called "torrents" where I download shit to
[00:15:04] mrptptpt: then when you have it, you can move it wherever you want
[00:20:14] AlenaBrolxFlami: ah... finally
[00:20:43] AlenaBrolxFlami: but it's red and yellow!
[00:21:24] AlenaBrolxFlami: never mind, it turned blue
[00:23:41] mrptptpt: probably just weren't connected to people yet :P
[00:24:13] AlenaBrolxFlami: something like that...
[00:29:43] mrptptpt: so, now you wait :P
[00:30:03] mrptptpt: mine says 18 hours left :P
[00:47:21] AlenaBrolxFlami: make up your mind!
[00:48:16] mrptptpt: about what?
[00:50:34] AlenaBrolxFlami: not you... the download time :P
[00:51:38] AlenaBrolxFlami: in the last few minutes, it's gone from 23 hours to 2 days.... now it's stabilized temporarily at 1 day 21 hours :P
[00:57:05] mrptptpt: that's because the download speed is always changing :P
[01:03:29] AlenaBrolxFlami: so that's normal?
[01:05:39] mrptptpt: yeah... it's not going to stay constant when you're constantly connecting to new people or disconnecting from people, and their speeds change based on what they're doing and whatever... of course it's going to change a lot
[01:22:17] AlenaBrolxFlami: okay, time to test this theory of yours
[01:23:58] mrptptpt: double click the torrent and then click the Peers tab and watch that for a while :P the speeds will change and the people you're connected to will change
[01:25:36] AlenaBrolxFlami: remind me about that in ten minutes :P
[01:44:54] mrptptpt: mine is flying now :P 370 k/sec
[01:44:55] mrptptpt: 401 k/sec :P
[01:46:14] mrptptpt: 428 k/sec
[01:46:23] mrptptpt: ~3 hours remaining :P
[01:47:27] AlenaBrolxFlami: you were wrong
[01:47:33] AlenaBrolxFlami: it did not start up
[01:47:54] mrptptpt: what are you talking about now? did you actually start Azureus? :P
[01:50:03] AlenaBrolxFlami: there was the weak link in my thought process :P
[02:02:04] AlenaBrolxFlami: it's not working... oh wait, it says it's checking something
[02:03:03] mrptptpt: yeah... it wouldn't need to if you closed it properly though, and I'm guessing you didn't since you reset the computer by cutting power to it from the wall :P
[02:03:17] mrptptpt: 5 gigs takes a while to check
[02:03:52] AlenaBrolxFlami: and yet it's gotten 3% done in the last few seconds... however, the "downloaded" thing isn't changing
[02:04:22] mrptptpt: it won't download while it checks to see what it still needs to download :P
[02:04:50] AlenaBrolxFlami: so why is the "done' thing changing? :P
[02:23:54] AlenaBrolxFlami: NEVER MIND, IT'S DOWNLOADING NOW
