[11/5/2007 12:33:42 PM] pD says: long time no talk
[11/5/2007 12:33:46 PM] pD says: how are things?
[11/5/2007 12:38:41 PM] nsy says: hi!
[11/5/2007 12:38:51 PM] nsy says: i'm on the phone with FB.. minute...
[11/5/2007 12:39:17 PM] pD says: no wories
[11/5/2007 12:39:19 PM] pD says: take your time
[11/5/2007 1:12:45 PM] nsy says: how have you been?
[11/5/2007 1:13:05 PM] pD says: ok
[11/5/2007 1:13:10 PM] pD says: i had a good massage this weekend
[11/5/2007 1:13:12 PM] pD says: very deep
[11/5/2007 1:13:18 PM] nsy says: nice!
[11/5/2007 1:13:19 PM] pD says: so, i am sore all over right now
[11/5/2007 1:13:32 PM] nsy says: i'm a whimp. i can't take that deep tissue stuff.
[11/5/2007 1:13:41 PM] pD says: but, i can feel parts of my body that i have forgotten...
[11/5/2007 1:14:11 PM] pD says: deep tissue is good in terms of pushing oxygen into parts of musle that has been deprived. but it sure hurt like hell
[11/5/2007 1:14:33 PM] pD says: so, a good therapist would be very helpful - that you are not just a dough but a human
[11/5/2007 1:15:05 PM] nsy says: maybe i should try it instead of acting like i know what i'm talking about. (but i'm good at that - just working with my strengths)
[11/5/2007 1:15:31 PM] pD says: hahaha! i know what you mean
[11/5/2007 1:16:04 PM] pD says: since deep tissue is pretty rough in the wrong hand, you would need to find the right person
[11/5/2007 1:16:22 PM] pD says: i would recommend the one that i use, but she is based in mountain view - not sure if that works for you
[11/5/2007 1:16:48 PM] pD says: did you do anything for the weekend beyond the usuals?
[11/5/2007 1:18:29 PM] nsy says: i took a sailing class - 2 of 4 down to get my sailing cert.
[11/5/2007 1:19:13 PM] nsy says: i want to get enough experience to take a boat out starting in the spring
[11/5/2007 1:26:26 PM] pD says: that is so cool!
[11/5/2007 1:26:39 PM] pD says: do you need somebody to run the sail for you?
[11/5/2007 1:26:53 PM] pD says: i got my sailing cert many years ago and have not been on a boat since then...
[11/5/2007 1:27:34 PM] nsy says: sure! i've met some good people to sail with in my classes too. that wouldbe fun!
[11/5/2007 1:28:47 PM] pD says: i am even better at sitting on my butt and drinking a cold one, but i assume you want somebody that is less inert on your crew
[11/5/2007 1:29:52 PM] nsy says: ha!
[11/5/2007 1:30:12 PM] nsy says: well - unless you bring enough for the skipper
[11/5/2007 2:14:33 PM] pD says: boozy skipper, huh. maybe we should just moor
[11/5/2007 2:15:42 PM] nsy says: LOL. yeah. good call on your part.
[11/6/2007 10:01:24 AM] pD says: hi nsy
[11/6/2007 10:01:35 AM] pD says: what is this arbor day thing?
[11/6/2007 10:01:40 AM] pD says: very cool!
[11/6/2007 10:01:41 AM] nsy says: hi!
[11/6/2007 10:01:55 AM] nsy says: I'm not sure. somethig about trees.
[11/6/2007 10:02:16 AM] pD says: hahah! indeed "arbor" being tree and all. :)!
[11/6/2007 10:02:23 AM] nsy says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbor_Day
[11/6/2007 10:02:38 AM] pD says: A was going to plant 10K trees with the arbor day foundation
[11/6/2007 10:02:55 AM] nsy says: whoa! i never heard about that
[11/6/2007 10:02:58 AM] pD says: sorry, i was referring to the press release about the VMware and the green initaitive
[11/6/2007 10:03:04 AM] nsy says: ah, yes
[11/6/2007 10:03:14 AM] pD says: it is a bit left field, but very cool, i thought
[11/6/2007 10:03:21 AM] nsy says: we're too cool for school, and too green to...
[11/6/2007 10:03:34 AM] nsy says: be mean? eat beans? i dunno
[11/6/2007 10:04:37 AM] nsy says: i have to get ready for our big 10:30 meeting, so i'll be available after about 11:30. intermittent until then ;) - not trying to be rude :)
[11/6/2007 10:04:38 AM] pD says: hahahah!
[11/6/2007 10:04:48 AM] pD says: no worries
[11/6/2007 10:04:58 AM] pD says: just thought that was pretty neat - lotsa trees
[11/6/2007 10:05:06 AM] pD says: talk with you in a bit after 11:30
[11/6/2007 10:05:35 AM] nsy says: okeedokee
[11/6/2007 12:51:00 PM] pD says: this is pretty crazy
A copyright row means that one of the most ambitious fan films ever made may never be shown before an audience.
[11/6/2007 12:51:04 PM] pD says: a real shame too
[11/6/2007 12:51:16 PM] pD says: although i completely understand the point of the IP owner
[11/6/2007 3:12:05 PM] nsy says: wow, thats crazy!
[11/6/2007 3:12:48 PM] nsy says: you should ask AE about the story of how he invented that game
[11/6/2007 3:16:45 PM] pD says: AE invested that game?
[11/6/2007 3:16:55 PM] pD says: what is he doing working in PA?
[11/6/2007 3:17:04 PM] nsy says: no, he was working in a comic shop, and started it with the owner
[11/6/2007 3:18:04 PM] pD says: ok, sorry for being dense here
[11/6/2007 3:18:12 PM] nsy says: its sortof a long story.
[11/6/2007 3:18:16 PM] pD says: what is AE's relationship with this game/video now?
[11/6/2007 3:18:27 PM] nsy says: he started it. it was his idea
[11/6/2007 3:18:35 PM] nsy says: but he never got any credit for it
[11/6/2007 3:19:04 PM] pD says: AE created Warhammer 40,000?
[11/6/2007 3:19:09 PM] pD says: you are shitting me!
[11/6/2007 3:19:13 PM] pD says: that is very cool!
[11/6/2007 3:19:16 PM] pD says: really?!
[11/6/2007 3:19:17 PM] nsy says: no, my mistake. it was mech wariior
[11/6/2007 3:19:56 PM] nsy says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MechWarrior
[11/6/2007 3:20:18 PM] nsy says: aka battletech
[11/6/2007 3:21:41 PM] nsy says: the comic shop he worked at was importing these toys from japan. he started up a RPG for the toy robots. they used to play it at the shop, and the guy that owned the place that he played with ended up taking that and it turned into battletech
[11/6/2007 3:21:53 PM] pD says: if it is on wiki, AE should assert his rights
[11/6/2007 3:22:01 PM] pD says: assuming he can prove it of course
[11/6/2007 3:22:11 PM] nsy says: i can't recall all the details off my head, but AE will tell you about it if you ask him.
[11/6/2007 3:23:19 PM] nsy says: he says nobody believes him, so he doesn;t usually bring it up. i've known him for about 4 years, and i just found this out recently. but knowing him - i believe it
[11/6/2007 3:26:20 PM] pD says: yeah, i know wht you mean
[11/6/2007 3:26:30 PM] pD says: i see no reason why AE would make a fib like that
[11/6/2007 3:27:06 PM] pD says: too bad that at the creative stage, it is kind of hard to say who was the "inventor" since it is a community effort for fun at first
[11/6/2007 3:27:16 PM] pD says:
[11/6/2007 3:28:05 PM] nsy says: yep. i told him that i always wondered if all the great ideas came from some back-room grunt, and were monopolized by business folks. and that answered my question ;)
[11/6/2007 3:28:41 PM] pD needs to know more grunts
