[06:30] <IrnChef_Jovian> I feel so bad for Motoki-chan, he got called in to work an hour earlier today ><
[06:31] <[gTV]Red Crow> Hah in the world of Journalism there are no set hours, he should be lucky they at least have to watch out for paying overtime to they can't kill him with 50+ hour weeks.
[06:32] <IrnChef_Jovian> I hate the fact people are expected to spend so much of their life working that there isn't anything left for them to enjoy afterwards
[06:32] <[gTV]Red Crow> Well you spend a lot of your day working, don't you?
[06:32] <IrnChef_Jovian> But I run my own restaurant, it's fun for me. Plus I can close up whenever I really need to.
[06:33] <[gTV]Red Crow> Why don't you let him work with you
[06:33] <IrnChef_Jovian> I'd get too distracted <_< >_>
[06:33] <[gTV]Red Crow> "Distracted" huh
[06:34] <IrnChef_Jovian> And besides, he has too much pride when it comes to losing Crown, he wants to to get it back somehow
[06:34] <[gTV]Red Crow> What, by working as a peon for McDonald's corporation?
[06:34] <// J_Daito //> No one ever got rich working for someone else.
[06:34] <[gTV]Red Crow> I make over 75 thousand a year.
[06:35] <// J_Daito //> 75 Thousand yen isn't much
[06:35] <[gTV]Red Crow> Euros.
[06:35] <// J_Daito //> ... Aino just throws money away, doesn't she
[06:35] <[gTV]Red Crow> HEY I DO MY JOB WELL
[06:35] <[gTV]Red Crow> For example, take this scoop:
[06:36] <[gTV]Red Crow>:
BBC's SF sitcom Red Dwarf is to return for a special one-hour episode to be filmed in October. The announcement came from one of the cast members, Robert Llewellyn (who played the android Kryten), at a personal appearance this weekend in Seattle.

[06:36] <// J_Daito //> That show died a horrible death after season 6.

[06:39] *** @spiritflame has kicked .'~SugaBB_2999~'. from #suburbansenshi REASON: ( not in my channel please)
[06:40] <// J_Daito //> I've seen every manner of depravity in my time with Queen Beryl and she still gets to me
[06:40] <[gTV]Red Crow> She's an example of the "Eternal September" of the Internet.
[06:40] <// J_Daito //> What's that
[06:41] <[gTV]Red Crow> Okay you know how there were internet neewsgroups like
[06:41] <// J_Daito //> Yes
[06:42] <[gTV]Red Crow> Well they were run on USENET servers. Back in the day, usually only university people had access to it
[06:42] <[gTV]Red Crow> Every September as new students enrolled, you'd get a fresh wave of n00bs who didn't know the rules and made trouble. Eventually they settled in and became memebers of the old guard.
[06:43] <[gTV]Red Crow> Enter AOL. They gave USENET to a perpetual wave of n00bs, who trampled all over the place.
[06:43] <[gTV]Red Crow> Thus, from the point of view of the pre-1993 Usenet user, the regular "September" influx of new users never ended.
[06:43] <// J_Daito //> I can see the Spore as being the living embodiment of that, yes
[06:44] <[gTV]Red Crow> Got to go, work calls
[06:45] <[gTV]Red Crow> But here, check this out for your amusement.
[06:45] *** [gTV]Red Crow [] has quit IRC (It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion, It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, The hands acquire shaking, The shaking becomes a warning; It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.)
[06:45] <// J_Daito //> ...
[06:46] <// J_Daito //> 10 just makes me laugh hysterically
[06:47] *** // J_Daito // [] has left #suburbansenshi (To be or not to be, I'm the best)
