[19:49:59] <Duesentrieb> n8 all
[19:50:06] * Duesentrieb has quit IRC ("bye")
[19:50:17] <Tom39Away> Who's Nate?
[19:50:38] <brion> who's nate who?
[19:50:46] <Tom39Away> Apparently all of us...
[19:50:56] <Tom39Away> (Sorry)
[19:51:46] * brion slaps Tom39Away around with a german and/or french dictionary
[19:52:23] <evanpro> I don't think it works in French
[19:52:51] <Tom39Away> What's that mean in French/German?
[19:54:08] <brion> n + huit => nuit? seems like it should work no?
[19:54:18] <brion> but i see it mostly from the germans
[19:54:22] <brion> n + acht -> nacht
[19:54:22] <evanpro> hmm
[19:55:13] <Tom39Away> Ahh, okay. For me it was n + eight -> Nate
[19:55:18] <Tom39Away> Thatnks for clearing that up.
[19:55:24] <evanpro> n + oyt = noyt (British)
[20:00:57] <Oliphaunt> same in Dutch
[20:00:58] <Oliphaunt> n8
[20:01:08] <Oliphaunt> funnily, also w8
[20:01:28] <Oliphaunt> which doesn't work in French and German but does in English
[20:01:33] <Oliphaunt> nacht and wacht
[20:01:56] <Oliphaunt> and n8w8 is the informal name of Rembrandt's famous painting
[20:02:00] <Oliphaunt> (nightwatch)
[20:02:05] <Oliphaunt> now, off to bed I go
