[11:30] sstacksyrc: oh great, so that will do for me
[16:54] jfw: sstacksyrc: who was that to?

[20:58] jfw: Barbarian: not sure how visible it is so wanted to mention the other cool project I'm involved in, Eulora 2. http://ossasepia.com/2022/02/04/whats-so-interesting-about-eulora2/ makes for a start
[21:01] jfw: there's a central game server with its inner secrets, but in general it's very open for players to contribute
[21:04] jfw: one attraction is the opportunity to learn or apply statistics & data analysis, toward making sense of the information you gather of the game world through your interactions with it
[21:08] jfw: there's an open, encrypted protocol for the communications, which is general enough to allow things to build up in complex ways; the workings of things can change server-side and it's up to the client (and player) to figure it out and adapt
[21:09] jfw: or work with others to do so faster
[21:14] jfw: it follows the "nothing out of thin air" spirit of bitcoin, and in the last version the game currency was pegged to btc. this time it's more likely to be a matter of who steps up to provide 'banking' or coin-interfacing services, i.e. could end up more distributed than central banking

[07:55] lru: jfw: is it possible to play Eulora now? that comment on the blog about the server made me assume it was in a maintenance limbo state
[16:45] jfw: lru: no limbo state anymore, eulora 1 is dead & gone, eulora 2 remains. as for "play", it's still in development & testing, though it's open to participation e.g. by discussing it on the blog.

[02:34] lru: jfw: wish you all the best on your toothy health plan... all I can say is that I went along with the recommendation when I was young, and got 8 teeth removed, if I recall, all at once, before braces and college... I've never really missed them, even though I have gaps in my mouth from where they could have left at least 2 where they were
[02:36] lru: in my case, my choice was a funding one... I had the option to get all my tooth problems fixed under the family dental plan, or have a nebulous bill ahead sometime in the future... I decided to get while the getting was good :-)
[02:38] lru: interestingly, even after all that, removal, braces, retainer... my bite is not perfect, and when paying attention, can tell. No pain, but clicks and sounds and imperfect remain.
[02:40] lru: they said I'd have to get bridges or something put in, to fill in the gaps that they left behind, and if I didn't my teeth would move and tilt horizonally to fill the gap... that has not come true, even after about 30 years, for reasons I don't know why, but the gaps are still there and my teeth still vertical
[02:41] lru: I'm thankful for that
[03:54] jfw: http://jfxpt.com/2024/jwrd-logs-for-Jul-2024/#12053 - ha, because why get one black eye, when you can get two on somebody else's bill... and then they literally had a bridge to sell you, to fix the problem it sounds like they created
[03:54] sourcerer: 2024-07-09 02:36:18 (#jwrd) lru: in my case, my choice was a funding one... I had the option to get all my tooth problems fixed under the family dental plan, or have a nebulous bill ahead sometime in the future... I decided to get while the getting was good :-)
[03:57] jfw: good that you came out alright then; that "tilting horizontally to fill the gap" sounds rather nuts
