*(10:54)FallenLeaves falls into the chat with a headache.*
(10:54)Arbiter: Hey, FL. How'd it go?
(10:55)Turquoise: You've already seen the log. Unless you haven't. This is confusing.
(10:55)Arbiter: Are you even on our side, Turq?
(10:55)Turquoise: I don't know.
(10:56)FallenLeaves: Not helping!
(10:57)Arbiter: I've seen the log, but I wanted to be polite and give you first dibs on talking about it.
(10:57)FallenLeaves: Alright. It seems like it basically confirms what we already knew, or at least suspected.
(10:58)SansFinalGuardian: if we're time interlopers, why don't our timestamps show up as question marks?
(10:58)Arbiter: Didn't Xeno say something about that somewhere?
(10:58)FallenLeaves: I don't know and I don't really want to ask her.
(10:58)TheDerangedOne: Maybe Delta would know.
(10:59)KittenLicks: Has another kitten fallen down our rabbit-hole?
(11:00)Arbiter: Nah, TDO's been PMing me for a while. They've got a hunch about the tech level thing.
(11:00)KittenLicks: Delta, Delta, Delta, what are you up to? Purrsuading Rasputin to attack Australia?
(11:01)FallenLeaves: After MrE's non-answer I'm inclined to say go for it.
(11:02)TheDerangedOne: I think I'm ready (don't screw this up, don't screw this up)
(11:05)Arbiter: Are you waiting for me to tell you to do it?
(11:06)Arbiter: Guys, my leadership credentials don't extend much beyond rambling about Hot Fuzz and typing in purple.
(11:07)SansFinalGuardian: and cussing out xeno
(11:07)Arbiter: Any of us could have done that!
(11:07)SansFinalGuardian: but you actually did
(11:08)Arbiter: Well, what have we got to lose? It's not like anyone's going to blow up a continent/planet!
(11:26)TheDerangedOne: Fuck being subtle time to make waves.
(11:26)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'm in the middle of a strategy meeting, make it quick.
(11:26)TheDerangedOne: *cough*ahem*cough *deep breath*
(11:28)TheDerangedOne: You kids got smartphones but you don't have any actual graphics capacity on your computers? I smell bull[censored]. Ever heard of a game series called Doom? (or Hexen, or singular games such as Shadow Warrior, Blood, And Duke Nukem 3D) go here: https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/idstuff/doom/doom19s
(11:28)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'm getting DNS errors. What's this about?
(11:32)TheDerangedOne: Lol well you're technology is really far behind even the 90s
(11:32)TheDerangedOne: Doesn't that seem weird to you
(11:33)SonjaOfTheMoon: A lot of important infrastructure got nuked.
(11:34)TheDerangedOne: Lol but you've had decades to rebuild
(11:34)TheDerangedOne: You can't tell me it takes that long to build a computer game
(11:35)SonjaOfTheMoon: ...all the factories got nuked. And much of the supply chain responsible for raw materials (and good riddance, too).
(11:37)TheDerangedOne: It doesn't take that long to figure out how to do graphics
(11:37)SonjaOfTheMoon: Economic incentives have changed since then.
(11:38)SonjaOfTheMoon: Look, is this going somewhere? Felicity's giving me dirty looks texting right now.
/message EntropicPhantom Does it ever seem weird how slowly technology's been rebuilt?
(11:41)EntropicPhantom: Not really? All the old stuff got nuked, and besides, the role of computers have changed since then.
/message reply How?
(11:42)EntropicPhantom: The real money's in computational physics, like what Sonja did on the Griddle.
(11:43)Xenocartographer: You're PMing the wrong people.
(11:43)EntropicPhantom: Except, uh, a thousand times less impressive.
/message Xenocartographer What's that supposed to mean?
(11:44)Xenocartographer: Cryptic vagueness, of course.
/message reply Lol of course
(11:48)TheDerangedOne: Does it ever seem weird how slowly technology's been rebuilt?
/message reply And who the Devil are you?
(11:50)Xenocartographer: It's okay, they're working for me, not that they know that. Uh, I'll redirect them.
/message DOGFOODLID Does it ever seem weird how slowly technology's been rebuilt?
(11:55)TheDerangedOne: Well that went [censored] great.
(11:57)Arbiter: This is starting to bother me too, now. Sonja and Alex should be smarter than that...
(11:58)KittenLicks: Purrhaps we're PMing the wrong people?
(12:00)SansTheComic: no, i don't think so.
(12:00)SansTheComic: it honestly feels like no one in this [censored] timeline realizes anything's weird about this.
(12:01)SansTheComic: and that scares me.
(12:02)Turquoise: If no one knows anything, why would Xeno tell us to PM other people?
