[2014/12/31 23:23] Markus Smithson: Mutha fuckin yeah man.
[2014/12/31 23:23] Vash Feingold: How was your Holidays?
[2014/12/31 23:23] Markus Smithson: I be down with that shit.
[2014/12/31 23:23] Markus Smithson: It was boring.
[2014/12/31 23:23] Markus Smithson: And yours?
[2014/12/31 23:23] Vash Feingold: Pretty good
[2014/12/31 23:23] Markus Smithson: good to hear
[2014/12/31 23:23] Vash Feingold: I ordered an Oculus Rift (VR stuff)
[2014/12/31 23:24] Vash Feingold: Gonna check that out for a bit
[2014/12/31 23:24] Markus Smithson: cool
[23:26] Vash Feingold: What have you been up to?
[23:27] Markus Smithson: nothing good
[23:27] Markus Smithson: just trying to stay warm
[23:27] Markus Smithson: how about you?
[23:27] Vash Feingold: Dont we all?
[23:27] Vash Feingold: Just been in and out of working
[23:27] Vash Feingold: Right now im programming a game within Second Life
[23:27] Vash Feingold: might be big, might not be
[23:28] Markus Smithson: wow, very cool
[23:28] Markus Smithson: I always thought of you as a bit of an SL anarchist
[23:28] Vash Feingold: I wanna make cash in this game ultimately, I feel.
[23:29] Markus Smithson: A good ideal.
[23:29] Markus Smithson: But SL doesn’t seem to be what it once was.
[23:29] Markus Smithson: I think it’s a bit stale…tarnished.
[23:29] Markus Smithson: Which is a shame.
[23:29] Vash Feingold: Definitely
[23:29] Vash Feingold: but theres a (no pun intended) a second life for it
[23:29] Vash Feingold: more and more people want to escape their lives
[23:29] Markus Smithson: This is true.
[23:30] Vash Feingold: We’re moving away from those universities who wanted to incoprerate it for some reason
[23:30] Vash Feingold: and now going into people with no lives
[23:30] Markus Smithson: When you think about it, some folks are maybe born with spina bifida. So they can’t walk. In here, they can walk and run.
[23:30] Vash Feingold: Ah that’s true too
[23:31] Markus Smithson: But I think the Avatars need some upgrading.
[23:31] Vash Feingold: Its some legacy shit I think
[23:31] Markus Smithson: I was interested in making some stil shots…like digital porn.
[23:31] Markus Smithson: and I ran across a lot of shit…like digital models
[23:31] Vash Feingold: Yeah
[23:32] Vash Feingold: mesh came out
[23:32] Vash Feingold: so now you can have a good looking avatar
[23:32] Markus Smithson: yes!
[23:32] Markus Smithson: I forget the nomenclature
[23:32] Markus Smithson: but it’s something like anchors or something
[23:32] Markus Smithson: you can take a series of photographs of real models
[23:32] Markus Smithson: and make them move.
[23:32] Markus Smithson: That’s what SL needs
[23:33] Markus Smithson: hell, most video games already have it
[23:33] Vash Feingold: Definitely
[23:33] Markus Smithson: realistic looking players
[23:33] Vash Feingold: Thanks to mesh
[23:33] Vash Feingold: thats closer than ever
[23:33] Markus Smithson: yep
[23:33] Markus Smithson: SL needs it
[23:33] Markus Smithson: then it would be like a true virtual reality
[23:34] Vash Feingold: Kinect support and the like?
[23:34] Markus Smithson: yeah
[23:34] Markus Smithson: or like you said, Oculus Rift
[23:34] Markus Smithson: But not to bitch, but SL hasn’t really done anything in the past 5 years
[23:35] Markus Smithson: I am not seeing anything in the way of upgrades
[23:35] Vash Feingold: yeah they are just like sitting
[23:35] Vash Feingold: with arcaic coding
[23:36] Vash Feingold: probably some code in there undisturbed for 10 years
[23:36] Markus Smithson: exactly
[23:36] Markus Smithson: doesn’t seem to be any R&D
[23:36] Vash Feingold: other than to ban, no
[23:37] Markus Smithson: yeah
[23:38] Markus Smithson: well hey man, I am gonna get out of here…it’s 2:30 AM
[23:38] Vash Feingold: yeah
[23:38] Vash Feingold: in the new year
[23:38] Vash Feingold: breaking it in with a chat
[23:39] Vash Feingold: Whats your goal this year?
[23:39] Markus Smithson: lemme know how the new virtual reality hardware works-out
[23:39] Vash Feingold: and I will
[23:39] Markus Smithson: to lose weight!
[23:39] Vash Feingold: Good one!
[23:39] Vash Feingold: For me it’s money
[23:39] Markus Smithson: indeed!
[23:39] Vash Feingold: or to get rid of bullshit in my life
[23:39] Markus Smithson: money helps too
[23:39] Vash Feingold: anyway get some sleep
[23:39] Markus Smithson: thanks
