Will I lose my dignity? (yes.)

IRC silliness.

It was a slow weekend. Thus, there was no dev available in IRC to poke to see if there was a quick fix for a site scheme issue. So I submitted it as a suggestion instead, with the notation in the ordered list of benefits: "Posting a suggestion is better than hitting a dev with a frying pan in IRC and maintains the suggestions process better."

So, this morning in IRC:

[discussion on how my workplace and lj support procedures differ]
[10:21] kevin|work: depends on the situation obviously, sometimes devs/ops do get emailed, but out of convenience it's not usually necessary
[10:21] Azz: sometimes we sneak up behind 'em in IRC and whack 'em over the head with a frying pan.
[10:22] kevin|work: :P
[10:22] Marta: they like that though
[10:23] * kevin|work readies his skillet
[10:24] *** janinedog has joined #lj_support.
[10:24] * Azz clonk
[10:25] Azz: speaking of sneaking up behind devs and whacking 'em over the head with a frying pan, hi Janine!
[10:25] kevin|work: another one!
[10:25] * kevin|work gets his net
[10:26] janinedog: Heh hi
[10:27] kevin|work: o/

[10:51] burr86: nice :)
[10:51] Azz: Yay!
[10:52] * Azz greets tupshin with open frying pans
[10:52] * V_PauAmma_V hands Azz a rolling pin, for variety.
[10:52] tupshin: well...that's a warmer greeting than I usually get

And then there's just the surreal.


[15:28] Azz: JD, honey, you're being paged in #dw
[15:28] JD: oh?
[15:28] phoenix: o_O
[15:28] Azz: Schools.
[15:28] * Azz shoo JD
[15:28] jc: JD honey? I'd pay for that.
[15:28] JD: pay for what >_>
[15:28] JD: ... oh
[15:28] JD: haha
[15:28] JD: how much?
[15:29] Azz: ummmm....
[15:29] * phoenix shakes her head
[15:29] * Azz sticks fingers in ears. La la la I can't hear you.
[15:29] JD: what. i'm a broke college student.
[15:29] Azz: wait, irc.
[15:29] * Azz sticks fingers in eyes.
[15:29] Azz: Ow.
[15:29] * JD hands azz eyespork.
[15:29] phoenix: six seconds to get from 'wha?' to 'how much?'
[15:29] JD: yeah, that was "realization"
[15:30] phoenix: you realise slowly, but you think fast once you achieve realisation
[15:30] JD: :D
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
