<@Reiv>
It says something about the cultures that people delineated each other by the weapons you showed up to war with
01:40
<@Reiv>
Almost like they named one another while peering into the distance from atop your motte and bailey castle, identifying which lot was attacking you today by what they wielded... instead of, y'know, ever speaking to them.
01:42
< Thalass>
Sounds about right

Even shaking hands and saluting are millitary-based traditions.
01:43

You shake hands to prove you aren't holding a sword. You salute to raise the visor on your helmet

hi guys
01:58
< Amanda_>
anybody here?
01:58
<@celticminstrel>
Nope!
01:58
<&ToxicFrog>
Yep.
01:58
<&McMartin>
Maybe!
01:58
<@celticminstrel>
The place is totally abandoned!
01:58
< Amanda_>
hahahah
01:58
<&Derakon>
Statistically, we have you covered.
01:59
< Amanda_>
how are you guys
01:59
<&ToxicFrog>
Covered in debugging.
01:59
<&ToxicFrog>
And yaks.
01:59
<&ToxicFrog>
Yourself?
01:59
< Amanda_>
just hanging around seeking conversation
01:59
< Amanda_>
i come from greece europe
02:00
< Amanda_>
excuse me
02:00
< Amanda_>
who is Orthia?
02:00
< Amanda_>
where is he from?
02:01
<@celticminstrel>
...
02:01
<&McMartin>
This is not really a social channel, as it happens.
02:01
< Amanda_>
i bet so
02:02
< Amanda_>
the largest channel is this
02:02
< Amanda_>
with 42 users
02:02
<&McMartin>
Yes, and it's a channel about software development (or "coding" as it is also often called)
02:03
< Amanda_>
oh
02:03
<&ToxicFrog>
Which is a popular topic on this network, as it happens.
02:03
< Amanda_>
so i bet that nightstar isn't either so socially popular
02:04
<@Reiv>
If I may ask, why did you ask who Orthia is?
02:04
<@Reiv>
I find it curious that it was such a specific choice.
02:04
< Amanda_>
because orthia is a greek word
02:04
< Amanda_>
ïñèéá
02:04
<@Reiv>
Ah, yes.
02:04
< Amanda_>
:)
02:05
<@Reiv>
Orthia is not greek, but loves the greek mythology.
02:05
<@Reiv>
Thus the name.
02:05
< Amanda_>
i guessed right that something has to do with greece regarding that nickname :)
02:05
<@Reiv>
And yes, this is a specialised programming channel.
02:06
<@Reiv>
It turns out that programming is one of the most popular topics on the network, which is pretty awesome.
02:06
< Amanda_>
i know nothing about programming :(
02:07
< Amanda_>
ok guys
02:07
< Amanda_>
i am very pleased to meet you
02:07
< Amanda_>
i will leave now,going to other networks around the world
02:07
< Amanda_>
i wish you the best
02:08
<&ToxicFrog>
Have fun
02:08
< Amanda_>
i will come back again sometime :)
02:08
< Amanda_>
have a good night :)

02:15 * McMartin goes to look up the Sanctuary of Artemis Orthia, finds this oddly Lovecraftian quote.
02:15
<&McMartin>
""I will give other evidence that the Orthia in Lacedaemon is the wooden image from the foreigners. Firstly, Astrabacus and Alopecus, sons of Irbus, son of Amphisthenes, son of Amphicles, son of Agis, when they found the image straightway became insane."
02:17
<&McMartin>
"Cheeses were piled on the altar and guarded by adults with whips. The young men would attempt to get them, braving the whips."
02:17
<&McMartin>
Behold, the power of cheese
02:23
<@Reiv>
... those quotes are both wonderful.
02:26
<@Reiv>
I assume the latter to be based on some sort of ritual or competition
02:27
<@Reiv>
Given that it is a) nonlethal guarding, and a clumsy option at that; b) well, /young men/
02:27
<&McMartin>
Yes
02:27
<&McMartin>
The oracle demanded the altar be stained with human blood. They decided the best way to get it was apparently cheese-based bloodsport.
02:27
<@Alek>
don't underestimate the lethality of so-called nonlethal weapons. whips included. o_o
02:28
<&McMartin>
Well, yes
02:28
<&McMartin>
I'm just saying, this seems to be pretty clearly evolved out of human sacrifice rituals
02:28
<&McMartin>
I skipped the parts in the middle about the altar demanding human blood
02:29
<@Reiv>
That is reasonable enough.
02:30
<&McMartin>
And yeah, the unbelievers referred to them as "the guys who scourge the *shit* out of themselves" so I'm guessing they played for keeps
02:37
<&ToxicFrog>
And now comes the scary part where I uninstall all my filesystem drivers while the system is running
02:40 * McMartin cues the 80s hair metal as an appropriate soundtrack for this operation.
