(07:22)metampsychotic: morning!
*(07:22)EntropicPhantom hugs Sonja*
*(07:22)metampsychotic also hugs Sonja*
(07:23)SonjaOfTheMoon: [censored], quit ganking me, you two!
(07:23)EntropicPhantom: :P <3
/message metampsychotic So I've made up my mind. I'm going to put what you told me last night aside for the moment and kick some virtual [censored] in this tournament, then figure out what the hell Pancake's up to and kick his breakfast-themed [censored] and maybe Theo's while I'm at it - just to be on the safe side, I'm sure you understand - and then go to Earth and make out with my boyfriend.
(07:24)SonjaOfTheMoon: <3
(07:24)metampsychotic: omg
(07:24)metampsychotic: so gushy :P
System: Incoming private message from user metampsychotic:
(07:24)metampsychotic: sounds like a plan!
(07:24)EntropicPhantom: We do that.
(07:24)System: User pwnz0rz is now ACTIVE.
/message EntropicPhantom I have no idea how, but I slept EIGHT ENTIRE HOURS. And dreamed of you a lot, but that much isn't in contradiction with all of known physics.
(07:25)pwnz0rz: im here to kick [censored] and drink ocffee, and i have no idea how i spelled coffe that wrong
(07:26)pwnz0rz: 'llo sonja
/connect org.private.moon -> /message services coffeebot {size=12oz, cream=0, sugar=1}
(07:26)System: (FROM:org.private.moon) Request received! Delivery in one (1) minute.
(07:26)SonjaOfTheMoon: Ah, hello, Luke. No particular disagreement here - [censored] is immanently kickable, and your spelling is attrocious.
(07:27)SonjaOfTheMoon: That would have been a good time to spell "atrocious" properly.

(07:20)Bulwark: So, here's the plan. The prelims are double-elimination, and teams with one loss on their record get priority on map selection over those without them. Anarchon and I did the math last night and it looks like it's in our interest to throw round 4, assuming no losses by then, to conserve items and have guaranteed priority in the last.
(07:20)Anarchon: More like she did the math and I pet the [censored] cat.
(07:21)m1ndh1ve1: lol
(07:21)m1ndh1ve1: kitty
(07:21)venemous: ana, dude, bul doesn't have a mathy bone in her body
(07:21)m1ndh1ve1: lol
(07:21)Anarchon: She's trying to make me feel... oh, forget it.
(07:22)venemous: you sure about this? if we can afford to throw round 4, we'll be up against someone good in 5
(07:22)venemous: i don't want to out-clever ourselves and die
(07:23)Bulwark: Right, that's the thing. We've all built our characters with a couple aces in the hole, some of which aren't in the meta right now. Anarchon's been getting great results with Surging Frost on an alt account - no one ever sees it coming. Stuff like that.
(07:23)Bulwark: We'll need to save those. Don't blow them - we're good enough that we don't need to. Hopefully, going into round 5, we'll have a bunch of unknown spell slots and map priority. Meanwhile, between rounds, I want everyone, and I mean everyone, pouring over match results to learn what we can about our probable enemies. We want to catch them unawares, not the other way around.
(07:23)Bulwark: If it comes down to giving away a secret or losing an early round... use your judgment. I'd say rounds 1 and 2 are worth saving, but round 3 is probably worth giving up if it means keeping our builds secretive.
(07:24)m1ndh1ve1: lol, you put a lot of thought into this
(07:24)Bulwark: Eh. Between good plans and us all being bad[censored] as hell, I think we've got this in the bag.

(07:34)yellowconspirator: Right, here's the plan. Pancake's got an Etamnanki division running the numbers on this tournament. We'll need to manipulate our match results to ensure we run into EP and friends, preferably after they've lost their mercy round.
(07:34)yellowconspirator: If we do, we try to force pwnz0's hand. If HQ detects a timeline fork, we can be relatively certain he's somehow got time powers already. If not, we can trust him.
(07:34)yellowconspirator: Sound off your in-game roles.
(07:35)lemmingconspirator: I'm the summoner. I'm tasked with map control, threatening capture points, and battlefield awareness.
(07:35)lackadaisicalconspirator: I'm the priestess. I'm tasked with healing, removing status effects, keeping tabs on hostile casters, and avoiding direct combat whenever possible.
(07:35)largeconspirator: I'm the assassin. I'm tasked with assassinations.
(07:36)yellowconspirator: pwnz1, skill assimilation appears to be holding. Recommend proceeding with personality upload.
(??:??)pwnz1ng: yup, i cnocnur
(??:??)pwnz1ng: concur*
(??:??)pwnz1ng: go kick some [censored]

Xenocartographer: This is probably the least ominous thing titled "the Gates of Asphodel" in the history of ever. Well, okay, it's a little bit ominous. edit delete reply
Arbiter: IT ACTUALLY WORKED! I GOT A LINK TO DISPLAY CORRECTLY! Bow down before my 1337ness, n00bs. edit delete reply
Arbiter: "Well, it's a bit small-"
"SHHHHHHHH..." edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: What the [censored] is going on here? It's only small on mobile and I can't figure out why. edit delete reply
KittenLicks: Well.. you've got me stumped. It's small on my tablet using chrome, but not when using a debug browser. It's not small on my computer using chrome even in mobile mode. And I can't find any code at all that even changes the font size, so I can only assume this is something to do with the font size getting cancelled and the default font size being used. If you ever do figure this out, please tell me what it was, this particular riddle has stumped me. :) edit delete reply
KittenLicks: Well... scratch that, it suddenly became small when using mobile view on Chrome. But only if the font-size is set to 18px. Bizarelly, setting it to 17px makes it BIGGER than the tiny 18px.


...what the [censored]? XD edit delete reply
Arbiter: I'm a coding GENIUS! Nobody can even figure out how I did it!
...Not even me! edit delete reply
KittenLicks: Further exploration:
Changing either of the a's to a span causes the font size to change back, as does removing the commentcontrol span following the two a's.


Changing the commentcontrol span to a div does nothing. Changing the styling of the a's beyond changing the font-size also does nothing. I can't see anything interfering with the font-size in dev tools.


So.
What the [censored]. xD edit delete reply
KittenLicks: Hm... well, I figured out how to fix it.

It seems the viewport meta tag has its initial-scale set to 0.4 instead of 1 for some reason, and that is somehow making this particular a tag 0.4 times smaller, and having no effect on anything else.

Frankly, this is eldritch even by my standards. I bet time travel is involved. edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: Ah... Asphodel at long last... I am Maximum Levels of HYPE~ edit delete reply
KittenLicks: "Ah, hello, Luke. No particular disagreement here - [censored] is immanently kickable, and your spelling is attrocious."


Probably a good time to spell 'imminently' correctly too. :D


Though apparently 'immanent' is a word, meaning "Existing or remaining within" or "Restricted entirely to the mind". So it could have meant "kickable but only in our imagination". edit delete reply
KittenLicks: Well... that's ominous. :3 edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Haha, nah...~ Sonja just isn't quite as much of a perfectionist as she thinks she is. edit delete reply
KittenLicks: Gah, Xeno, now I've wasted 5 minutes of my life reading a page called "The Meaning Of Gaia" because it comes up if you google Gaia and Immanence.

So now the real question: Is this a coincidence? Or is it intentional and you just want us to think it is a coincidence?

OR is it a coincidence and you just want us to think that you are making us think it is a coincidence when it is really intentional, but it was really a coincidence ALL ALONG!

I've got my eye on you and your tildes~ edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: /message __RSPTN__ Good evening, dear sir! I have a question. What would you say is the true meaning of Gaia? edit delete reply
Arbiter: You sound like a door-to-door evangelist! XD edit delete reply
Seabiscuit: -snerk-
I do, don't I? Ack.:(
In any case, I'm hoping since he has Gaian contacts he might know~ edit delete reply
Xenocartographer: Hm... Seasavescuit? Praybiscuit? Seawitnesscuit? So many posseabilities! edit delete reply
KittenLicks: Good morning, have you heard the good news about Gaia? No? Cause we were really hoping you had, we're trying to figure it out ourselves. edit delete reply
